47 Senators Commit Treason, Violate The Logan Act

No sitting US president has ever had to deal with as much disrespect, opposition, or now, treason, than Barack Obama. Not Bush Jr, not Clinton, not Reagan. Not Carter, not Ford, not Truman.
None.

This week, 47 Republican Senators committed treasonous acts by first inviting a foreign president to dictate foreign policy to the US Senate, and followed up this action by directly communicating with Tehran in violation of the Logan Act, which prohibits anyone but the President from conducting diplomacy with enemy states such as Iran, Syria, or other nations like Cuba.

To be clear, this is an attempt by Republicans to again undermine and sabotage a sitting US president, and a clear power grab attempt.

But nothing will be done. And Republicans know it.

Why? Well, let's look at the big picture.

First of all, Obama stirs up VIOLENT and racist thoughts in the GOP base. Any action Obama takes will be seen as politically motivated (let's never mind that pesky Logan Act law, nobody has ever actually been prosecuted, and only one person has ever been indicted).

Let's pretend for a second that Obama tells Eric Holder to bring charges against 47 US senators. What's that going to look like to the Fox-zombies out there? The story would blaze across Fox and WSJ: "Obama attempts to dissolve congress, charges GOP with TREASON!". And the USA goes into a second civil war.

Don't think that would happen? Well, I sure do. That's the last thing we need.

But, the GOP have talked for years of impeachment, wouldn't it be only fair to actually prosecute people who actually broke the law? Sure it would! But the fallout is not worth the risk. Perhaps when Obama is out of office, charges could be brought against these traitorous senators, but if Obama does it, the US ignites in a rage of fury. There is no doubt in my mind.

So for now, we as US citizens have to watch our democracy shattered by the GOP loud mouths, watch as our system of government is disrespected, abused, and usurped, and there's not much we can do about it. We literally have zero power over those corporate whore warmongers. The SECOND a GOP President gets elected, with a GOP congress, you better start hoarding your food, and putting your savings in mattresses... this shit will get UGLY.
