Should Obama Administration Officials Face Death Penalty?

Barack Obama's inept Presidency is coming under fire from all corners now, with his top problems now being scandals involving apparent corruption involving a massive loan to Solyndra that involves apparent political payoffs, and a similar bit of corruption that may have threatened national security when the White House attempted to rig the testimony of a general for their campaign donors at LightSquared.

The worst affront, however is Operation Fast and Furious and other suspected gun-walking operations that could not have functioned as a law enforcement endeavor and which only makes sense as an attempt to implement the radical Cloward-Piven strategy and destroy capitalism in America.

Taken in the aggregate with so many of the economic, regulatory, and political moves we've seen since January 20, 2009, it is hard to conclude that the goal of the Obama administration is anything but the intentional destruction of our government.

If this can be proven, should Obama Administration officials face extensive prison time, or do such crimes against the nation warrant the use of the rarely-used implementation of the federal death penalty?

This is not hyperbole by any stretch of the imagination. The details on the Lightsquared scandal are still coming out, but does appear to be at least a nominal threat to our national security and the safety of American servicemen in harm's way.

Gunwalker, in it's various incarnations, armed cartels and domestic criminal gangs with "walked" weapons and turned federal law enforcement agencies into a blocking force that actively kept gun smugglers and their contraband from being intercepted.

They not only armed this nation's enemies when they armed Mexican drug cartels, they ensured that the smugglers themselves would not face arrest during the duration of the operation.

This legally constitutes treason.

TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 115 > 2381 > Treason

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

Ensuring that our enemies are delivered weapons constitutes levying war, adhering to our enemies, and giving them aid and comfort within the United States and elsewhere is treason, a crime punishable by death.

Barack Obama lauds himself for having so many "firsts" as a President. Considering his actions in office, he may also deserve becoming the first U.S President sent to death row, along with members of his blood-soaked Cabinet.

I think you would need to make the case that the drug cartels are our enmies. But since we are at war against drugs and not drug cartels I think you would have a tough time making that claim. Similarly, We are at war against terrorism, not any particular Islamic or terrorist group. So there isn't anyone who can surrender on their behalf and giving billions of dollars, even tax dollars, to the PLO and Hamas is just fine.

It just ain't going to happen.

It won't happen as there are no consequences for these self serving d'bags and until a few are made to resemble Mussolini inspecting a fence there will be no change. I'd like to see him voted out and tossed away like the bitter little Mr Carter.

A landslide of epic proportions would put a nice dent in that arrogant/narcissistic demeanor. He will then be relegated to the junk pile of history and remembered for recorded history as the monumental failure that he is. That will eat at his insides and cause great internal pain. Fully deserved of his blind, arrogant ambition.

Sad to say it probably will not happen. He will be lauded by the UN and made the Sec. General and will keep trying to ruin us.

Thanks Kentsmith. I needed that dose of reality. I guess I must have been dreaming. You are so right - UN plays right into his monumental arrogance.

It want happen because the Republicans would have to push for it and they seem more interested in compromising with this nut than confronting him and stopping his destructive agenda. Can you name one presidental contender that has the testosterone to do something about the wrongs of this guy?
