….Obama's campaign got caught up in a series of revised statements about what one of his economic advisers said to a Canadian official about NAFTA. Meanwhile, the trial of Chicago developer Tony Rezko, a former Obama supporter, thrust that issue back into the headlines.
Someone asked me why I was cheerleading for Hillary. I suppressed a desire to punch him. I don’t give a flip who wins the Demo nomination, but I do want to make sure the Demos, and the country know who and what they are getting.
The above quote comes from CBS News and I note it for two reasons. The first is to show that Hussein has ties to some very shady people, and that he not only wouldn’t come clean about the discussion between his people and Canada because it shows that the pure dishonestness of his campaign, it also demonstrates that he doesn’t mind violating Federal Law. And yes, I know he didn’t personally do it, but I also remember that Nixon got impeached for what his guys did, and his failure to give them up. No difference between Nixon’s and Hussein’s actions in my mind, except Hussein has done it twice. First In Syria a few weeks ago and now with the Canadians.
It’s calledThe Logan Act.
§ 953. Private correspondence with foreign governments.
Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply himself, or his agent, to any foreign government, or the agents thereof, for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects.
and it is supposed to keep unauthorized people from doing the above. For years and years it wasn’t a very big deal, but leave it to the Demos to break the law big time. First it was Dear Leader Pelosi, and now Hussein twice. And to be fair, Dear Leader Pelosi had a couple of tag a long Repubs.
Perhaps someone should also advise the Canadians that what they are doing is often called “aiding and abetting” in an unlawful act and that they should restrain themselves… Particularly when GITMO is starting to have spare cells…
Now, it isn’t that I am for NAFTA, I’m not. Any dunderhead, even Bubba and Pope Algore knew that the end result of NAFTA would be a big time loss of manufacturing jobs. The Little Admiral wasn’t always right, but he knew a giant sucking sound when he heard it, and what was being sucked. Perhaps that is what Bubba aka Monica’s Boyfriend thought was going on. Perhaps he was confused. As the old C&W song said..
I didn’t know the gun was loaded
And I’m so sorry my friend..
It is not that I think manufacturing can make a comeback in the US. A few years back I was involved with a start up in which we tried every way possible to manufacture in the US. It just couldn’t be done.
But what we could do, say in the case of Mexico would be demand a 25% discount in oil prices, the Mexican Army to keep their cultural sojourner wannabees south of the border and to clean up a small fraction of the corruption that is there.
Instead the politicians claim to be able to bring back jobs while, in Hussein’s case violate federal law and lie to the electorate.
