When vitriol towards a president becomes treason

treason

that is what we are seeing from leftists

we say they hate America, and many times that comment is mostly a jab in the back and forth in the "gotcha" game of politics and message board banter

but when a democrat senator breaks confidence by revealing comments from a private meeting; my position is that the action is nothing less than treason

Senator Durbin is a traitor to the United States; and those that are rallying behind him are no better

they care more about undermining Trump than they do about what is best for America

the debate over immigration COULD be made on principled grounds and settled at the ballot box

but that is not how the left operates

Trump says he never referred to any country as a "s***hole"

but it really does not matter

the reaction from the left and our media is unpatriotic and damaging to our national interests; it really could not be more clear cut

bonus - can someone, anyone, explain to me why I should care if POTUS called some s***hole a s***hole?

it must be exhausting to live in a perpetual state of outrage over trivial things...

bonus part duex - having top leaders on the left scream at the sky in outrage over this will help Trump and republicans at the ballot box

Treason is debatable but I guarantee most liberals are praying for a recession. They would rather see massive unemployment and misery rather than a successful economy with Trump at the helm. Is that treason? If not they are definitely un-American.

Ignorance of what treason is doesnt help so here you go -

Article 3 of The US Constitution defines treason as:

Quote:
 
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.



Revealing to the public what is said in a closed door meeting is not treason.

Blanket statements like calling entire countries "s**tholes" because they are countries of darkies gives insight into the way the President thinks of and deals with the rest of the world. It creates unneeded problems, and shows a lack of both restraint and discernment by the President.

You can bet if the leader of another country called the US a s**thole (which it is rapidly becoming) there would be a bunch of moronic, childish tweets about it posted from Trumps account.


By the way YOU saying someone else hates America because they dont worship the US government the way you do or.to your satisfaction does not make it so.
Ever notice the only 2 people Trump refuses to speak ill of are Stormy Daniels and Vladimir Putin?

treason is probably too strong

but disinterested in what is good for America at a minimum

they care more about political points than they do about what is best for our country

why would democrats not want to be part of a discussion about policy?

anyway; Durbin has demonstrated that he cannot be trusted with sensitive information

After disrespecting Trump the democrats number one priority is illegal immigrants. The democrat party of old is dead.

Your diatribe here is as or more applicable to Trump and his a**lickers as it is to anyone else.

I don't know what DCLB is smoking, but he should review what conservatives had to say for eight years about Obama before he starts talking about vitriol being treason.

I remember my comments, I called him an incompetent idiot that added 10 trillion dollars to the debt, lied to us about his signature healthcare program, lied to us about the IRS scandal and was responsible for the slowest growing economy since the Great Depression. Those are facts, not unfounded nasty comments.

Your argument is nothing less than absolute bull shyte and as such this post should be moved to either MFAB or UUU immediately. Moderators do your thing!

I'm always tickled pink, no pun intended, when our conservative snowflakes get all up in a dilly about how Trump's being treated.

Now more specifically, there's nothing in your argument that even comes remotely close to constituting treason.

Here's the definition:

"Legal Definition of treason. : the offense of attempting to overthrow the government of one's country or of assisting its enemies in war; specifically : the act of levying war against the United States or adhering to or giving aid and comfort to its enemies by one who owes it allegiance."

Source: Treason | Definition of Treason by Merriam-Webster; https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/treason

Real Americans Are Standing Up To The Alt-Right And It's Constant Lying!!!!!

Wait a sec...how is President Trump's personal opinion of another country considered sensitive information? He's not exactly shy about giving his opinion...he's made tweeting more important then keeping his staff intact.

Yes, treason is way over the top for a difference of opinion.

Is this really the right direction for the country?

And would you apply those same standards to the actions of conservatives for the eight years of the Obama administration?


Has the White House actually denied the comment?
Has Senators Purdue and Cotton changed their "don't recall" to a "no" yet? :biggrin:

C'mon, seriously?

Fair point....But....If your heart is in making a deal then you don't broadcast every negative comment made in meetings to obtain that deal....

With what was put on the table to the President by these Senators....It was a fail just waiting to be called....

You are not the only conservative to have ever spoken on the topic of President Obama.

Anyone who can't filter themselves enough to make sure that the term "sh!thole" doesn't come up when they are in the midst of important negotiations that they would like to see succeed, isn't bright enough to be President, even if they are President.

Trump is an arrogant foul mouth nincompoop that makes Obama look like a political/diplomatic genius. Hell, he even manages to make GWB look good, and that takes some doing.
