A partial definition of treason is, “the crime of giving aid or comfort to the enemies of one’s government.”
I submit the president has committed treason by his past actions with Russia and present statements with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.
Vladimir Putin’s government has made serious efforts to destroy the government of the U.S. Most leaders think of Kim Jong-Un as one of the worst dictators in the world.
President Trump sides with those two against the U.S.
Until now, it has been inconceivable for a U.S. president to stand side-by-side with an enemy against top U.S. officials.
Disagreeing politically with a member of the other party is natural; publicly agreeing on a worldwide stage against an American vice president with an enemy is almost beyond belief.
Maybe now the Democrats will have a reason to start the process of removing this person.
Donald Trump has committed treason and is a traitor. Surely, some Republicans will be patriotic enough to act for the U.S. and not just the party’s leaders.

According to the Rev. Manasseh Cutler, who took a leading role in drafting the Ordinance of 1787 for the development of the Northwest Territory, “… we may dismiss our fears, when we consider that truth can never be in real hazard, where there is a sufficiency of light and knowledge, and full liberty to vindicate it.”
After the Aug. 24, 1814, British seizure of Washington, D.C., and burning of the Capitol and White House, the Marietta, Ohio, newspaper “Western Spectator,” wrote in an editorial: “Shall we repose in apathy when our liberties are not only threatened, but openly assailed? Shall we cherish a lethargic sleep when the enemy is at our doors? Americans!… Awake… !”
In his book “Business Adventures,” writer John Brooks stated, “…King Lear learned that when the role of dissenter is left to the fool, there may be trouble ahead for everybody.”
It may be true that President Trump has accomplished a few good deeds while in office; but if there are any, they are foolishly overshadowed by his demands to “close the book” and “turn out the lights, the party’s over.”
The truth must triumph in spite of Trump and those Republican congressional members who praise Caesar and give the impression they kiss his feet.
But truth will not be revealed if Americans do not wake up and use their liberty to defend it. The alarm clock is ringing.

No impeachment grounds
I have a question regarding the proposed impeachment of President Trump: On what grounds?
It seems the never Trumpers want to impeach him simply because they don’t like him. Robert Mueller’s gang of Trump-hating Democrats spent 22 months and $30 million trying to find collusion between Trump and Russia.
After all that, they found nothing. Democrats and the press have been lying to the American people about this for the last two years.
So now that there is no collusion, the leftist press is saying that Trump obstructed justice. How can he have obstructed justice when there’s no justice to obstruct?
There is no underlying crime. Democrats are saying that Trump is guilty because he proclaimed his innocence and because he thought about firing Mueller, which of course he did not actually do. This is laughable.
Trump behaved as any rational person would when falsely accused of doing something he did not do.
Many on the left are calling for Trump’s impeachment, including most of the Democratic presidential candidates.
These people are not grounded in reality and are showing their lack of fitness for any elected office. Their behavior is embarrassing.
What are they doing to actually benefit their constituents? Nothing that I can see!
