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.
The Congress shall have power to declare the punishment of treason, but no attainder of treason shall work corruption of blood, or forfeiture except during the life of the person attainted.
US Constitution, Article III, Section III
On 19 June 1953, Julius and Ethel Rosenburg met their deserved fate.
Having been convicted of giving the Soviets critical information on the US’ technological developments in the decade just past the conclusion of WWII, they were very correctly blamed for the technological parity the Soviets quickly gained costing American lives in the wars that would follow.
We didn’t kill enough of them.
The Left has reveled in certain claims over the years, always running contrary to the interests of this once-great nation in every attempt at stymieing its progress whilst rotting away its very core. Very cleverly they understood that the 1950s era represented the pinnacle of capitalist achievement, juxtaposed to the rampant poverty of a broken post-war USSR. There were jobs, a roaring economy, great advancements in technology, and a properly run education that – gasp – met standards and produced giants.
The Rosenburgs acted against a nation and people they hated. Why else could one betray his nation, very knowingly culpable for the killing of his own countrymen? And yet, the Rosenburgs knew not directly the staggering cost of war. When it was discovered by the War Department that Rosenburg, an engineer for the Army’s Signal Corps, was a member for the Communist Party, he was fired, but he didn’t stop there. For the communist, Revolution is duty.
While the Soviets were adept at spy recruitment in that era, after all, many in the US infrastructure had well known communist leanings prior to WWII, they understood well that the source of a nation’s pride is its ability to levy war. Until the US military could be broken, there would be no hope of communist revolution in the United States. Having a Flag Officer handing secrets, or even so much as consorting with an enemy nation, would be unthinkable. The solution then is communist revolution within the ranks.
This leads us to the case of General Mark Milley, Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff, declared Maoist under oath, academic adherent of communist revolution, and now the subject of accusations of contacting his Chinese Communist People’s Liberation Army counterpart ahead of a possible President Donald Trump asserting his Constitutional duty to the nation and declaring a fraudulent election what it in fact was.
“General Li, you and I have known each other for now five years. If we’re ever going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise,” the Post reported, citing the book.
Gen. Milley was reportedly certain that President Trump had a mental breakdown after the election and was obsessed with conspiratorial theories about why he lost. The authors wrote that Gen. Milley was worried the president could “go rogue” in his final days.
“You never know what a president’s trigger point is,” Gen. Milley told his senior staff, according to CNN.
Gen. Milley went so far as to instruct senior officials in the National Military Command Center, the Pentagon’s war room, not to take orders from anyone — including the president — unless he was involved.
“No matter what you are told, you do the procedure. You do the process. And I’m part of that procedure,” Gen. Milley told the officers, according to the book.
A very easy case can be made here condemning this man to death. Nothing further should need stating; collusion with the Chinese People’s Liberation Army is rather blatant should these allegations be factual. That said, the book, by longtime leftist journalist Bob Woodward, should be taken as valid on its face by the very hubris that the Left continues to exhibit. Why should they hide? Who will prosecute them? By their own actions they have exposed themselves as thus. Milley deserves a firing squad.
But we should not stop there.
What we will see in the coming days is a rallying of the communists around the hero of their newly envisioned nation, a modern day Marshall Zhukov. Coming from PBS contributor Yamiche Alcindor:
Of course, Democrats say this needed to happen, because General Milley was trying to save and protect the country from a president who was, at the time, they believe, unstable.
Of course they will. They are domestic enemies. The goals of the Rosenburgs and their ilk, communist worms who sought to actively undermine and destroy the greatest nation on earth, is now quite clear. Destroy the might of a nation by rotting its military from within. Make it an experiment in sociological perversion rather than the tool it is intended to be. And thus it cannot stand in the way when your well cultivated enforcers, bringing the war home as the chants from the 1960s SDS would say, come calling.
Milley and his allies will go nowhere in a nation that has not the will to uphold any standard of law, let alone preserve itself. He is a piece of the whole, merely one tumor rotting away the corpus which it inhabits, now terminal. So be it. The Patriot has a long memory. And the castle in the sand of which they have built will crumble quickly to have a nation rebuilt upon stone. Until the communist is destroyed in every corner which it reels, that foundation cannot be laid.
A generation of well seasoned warfighters gaze on in a cold stare from the shock of your abandonment of us. We coldly hung our uniforms up and went home, eager to share what we know in the face of your failures. The day will come and you have made the case explicitly clear. It took the Taliban nineteen, to be exact. We did not forget our oath to this nation. And you can expect no airlifts, no rescue operations, no bribes, and nowhere to run.
