Trump Adviser and Delegate Calls for Hillary Clinton to Be “Shot for Treason”

Incitement to violence
Politics • Views: 41,647

And now, a “veteran’s outreach” adviser to Donald Trump and delegate to the GOP convention, Al Baldasaro, has publicly called for Hillary Clinton to be “shot for treason.” Here’s the audio, via Andrew Kaczynski at Buzzfeed:

SoundCloud

The Daily Beast’s Tim Mak contacted Baldasaro, and he proceeded to double down:

“Anyone that commits treason should be shot,” Al Baldasaro, an adviser to the Trump campaign for veterans issues, he told The Daily Beast. “I believe Hillary Clinton committed treason. She put people in danger. When people take confidential material off a server, you’re sharing information with the enemy. That’s treason.”

Do any of these asswipes even realize the importance of having “treason” explicitly defined in the US constitution?

That was done precisely to oppose the demagogues’ first line of attack, which is to call their opponents traitors for mere political differences. Accepting that nonsense is how democracy dies, as the founders well knew.

I have seen that line of thought occurring more and more over the last 8 years: Democrats and liberals are not merely political foes but traitors to America. This stems from the Reagan years where the GOP internal myth formed to the effect that real Americans are Republicans and the government belongs by right to Republicans.

The next logical step is to start calling for a one party state and ban Democrats as treasonous or some such.

To go back to the Melania Trump speech for a moment, if you think it through, the speech writer taking responsibility just makes it worse.
a.) Melania must have lied about writing much of it herself.
b.) Melania either failed to read the speech through before delivering it or she failed to recognize the lines that she had been so moved by that she gave them to said speech writer as examples.

She would have been better off to say something like: “I’m so sorry to have done that. I am not a professional speaker or speech writer and in reading a number speeches in preparation for writing this, I was profoundly moved by Mrs. Obama’s upbringing which must have been much like my own. I unwitting repeated phrases that felt very natural to me.”

People might or might not have believed it, but it would be done.

I’ll grab a paragraph for those who don’t click the link:
Stephan Jenkins in 2012:

“The Republican National Convention is not a private event … It’s a public sales pitch, and everyone is supposed to deliver the script,” Jenkins wrote at the time. “This whole hustle is peppered with music bits meant to wed policies like forced births of rapists’ babies and minority voter suppression to song. Even the private party my band was asked to play at the RNC is not some innocuous event. Though I am happy to play for Republican fans, like my lifelong Republican mom, playing the RNC convention is a tacit endorsement of the Republican presidential candidate and his party platform, and this is not my mom’s Republican Party anymore.”

KGxvi  Jul 20, 2016 • 11:55:14am

Since these strict constitutionalists probably already know this, it probably doesn’t bear repeating, but just for shits and giggles, here is what the US Constitution says about treason, Article III, Section 8 (for those keeping score at home):

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.

So, to be guilty of treason, you have to levy War against the United States, like say Robert E Lee and company. Or you have to adhere to US enemies - which legally means you joined the enemies. So, given that Clinton hasn’t taken up arms against the United States, that means to be convicted, she would have had to have joined ISIS or al Qeada or some other perceived “enemy” of the US (and I’m guessing if we were to suddenly declare Russia an enemy, that would result in an international shitshow of RNC proportions).

As far as I know, there is no way to bring criminal charges for inciting stochastic terrorism. The incitement needs to be immediate and direct (e.g., personally egging on rioters in action) for charges to be brought.

Trump simply pooh-poohs this instead of firing this guy from the campaign.

That’s tacit approval. There’s no consequences for saying anything batcrap insane, or even threatening violence towards others, including a former First Lady, Presidential candidate, or anyone else these people don’t agree with.

There are a lot of heavily armed and seriously deluded people who have bought into this worldview, and Trump’s brought them all to the party’s central meeting place - and given them all seats at the table. This is their party - and all the so called establishment nuts are going along with this, because they rely on these nuts for their continued political viability as well.

That’s the problem right there. All the GOPers rely on these core voters who are unhinged from facts, logic, or reality. None can stand up against the bigotry, hate, and sheer madness, or else they’ll find themselves tossed out for not being extreme enough.

And with each passing day, the party becomes even more extreme.

They’re trying to make up for these:

Go into any grocery store in the US this time of year and you’re sure to find an abundance of neatly packed cartons of blackberries, blueberries and strawberries. For many it’s a hallmark of summer.

Beneath the sweetness of these berries, though, lies a bitter labor dispute that has been roiling for years at Driscoll’s, the world’s largest distributor of berries — the ones you find at Costco, Target, Whole Foods and host of other grocery stories.

You’d think the fact that the last treason conviction in the United States being in 1952 (tied to a dual US/Japanese citizen who fought for worked at a Japanese POW camp during WWII, and whose death sentence was commuted to life in prison and then deportation), would give some of these people just the slightest pause.

I still think he will pledge to have Hillary arrested and charged the day after he takes office.

He already said he would do that last February. The crowd is being pumped for this.

No, they’d need to stay. The GOP can’t start driving people out of the country. I really don’t think the majority (even the majority of registered Republicans) would like the idea of jailing political foes. If no one stays around to stand up to them it will just be an encouragement.

I don’t think the majority of Germans or Soviets were fond of what Shicklegruber or Dugashvili did, but they quickly learned the value of keeping their mouths shut.

Funny you mentioned that:

The Texas Lt Governor suggested the 1st Amendment does not cover criticism of cops:

He went on to criticize people who bash the police on social media. “I understand the First Amendment, I understand freedom of speech, and I defend it,” the Republican politician said. “It is in our Constitution, it is in our soul, but you can’t go out on social media and mainstream media and everywhere else and say that the police are racist, that the police are hateful, the police are killers.”

And he is now demanding that a new AG under Trump take down Black Lives Matter…

During a Tuesday interview on CNN, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) said that he would “absolutely” want the attorney general to investigate the Black Lives Matter movement.

He said he agreed with Donald Trump’s Monday night comments on Fox News, when the Republican candidate said that he would discuss the group with his attorney general if elected president.

Patrick has been critical of the Black Lives Matter movement, earlier this month blaming the deadly shooting of police officers in Dallas on anti-police rhetoric and Black Lives Matter protests.

re: #116 EPR-radar

It seems so.

If he wins the presidency, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump would seek to purge the federal government of officials appointed by Democratic President Barack Obama and could ask Congress to pass legislation making it easier to fire public workers, Trump ally, Chris Christie, said on Tuesday.

Christie, who is governor of New Jersey and leads Trump’s White House transition team, said the campaign was drawing up a list of federal government employees to fire if Trump defeats Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in the Nov. 8 presidential election.

“As you know from his other career, Donald likes to fire people,” Christie told a closed-door meeting with dozens of donors at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, according to an audio recording obtained by Reuters and two participants in the meeting.

Remember the scandal during the Bush years when that Liberty U grad in the Justice Department was hiring and firing based on religion?

They are announcing this beforehand and in the open.

Not at all. The language doesn’t really exist to describe how militantly indifferent Republicans are to truth and reality.

A quantum supercomputer, calculating for a thousand years, could not begin to enumerate the number of fucks the Republicans do not give about reality.

They don’t even ask the question of whether some purported statement of fact is true or false. The only question considered is whether or not the statement is useful.

re: #136 Sir John Barron

They are announcing a plan to change the laws and allow them to do exactly that.

Donald Trump and Chris Christie are reportedly planning to purge the civil service

The general election is still more than three months away, but the Donald Trump campaign, at least, is getting a jump start on transition planning, and transition chief Chris Christie has some big ideas for how to make the federal bureaucracy great again.

Reuters’s Emily Flitter reports that Christie told a donor meeting on Tuesday that Trump will try to purge the government of Obama appointees, out of “fear that Obama may convert these appointees to civil servants, who have more job security than officials who have been politically appointed.”

To make that process easier, Christie reportedly said, “One of the things I have suggested to Donald is that we have to immediately ask the Republican Congress to change the civil service laws. Because if they do, it will make it a lot easier to fire those people.”

In other words, Christie and Trump would seek to replace the current civil service system, which involves extensive protections meant to keep workers from being fired for political reasons, with a system specifically designed to make it very easy to fire workers for political reasons.

Standing against the Stalwarts were the “Half-Breeds,” Republicans who agreed with Democratic demands for civil service reforms and a professionalized federal bureaucracy. These Democratic efforts, befitting the party’s purpose at the time as the leading political arm of white supremacy, were tinged with a desire to curb black employment and social advance.

It’s no coincidence that the civil service act eventually passed in 1883 bore the name of Sen. George Pendleton, who as a Congress member was a leading opponent of the 13th Amendment abolishing slavery. (The Radical Republican Thaddeus Stevens quipped during the 13th Amendment debate that Pendleton’s epitaph should read, “Here rests the ablest and most pertinacious defender of slavery and opponent of liberty.”)

They would be able to fire any civil service employees under the proposed change and then there is this…

In other words, Christie and Trump would seek to replace the current civil service system, which involves extensive protections meant to keep workers from being fired for political reasons, with a system specifically designed to make it very easy to fire workers for political reasons.
Revolving door government, but without actual revolving

Flitter also reports that Christie and Trump want to “let businesspeople serve in government part time without having to give up their jobs in the private sector.” Ostensibly, the purpose of this would be to allow the government to recruit better private sector talent.

******************
Weakening that system has costs. It could imperil the reputation and standing of the federal government, and produce rules and regulations that let industry act with impunity and cater to the whims of Congress members with affected businesses in their districts. And letting business people come in and be regulators while still running their businesses, as Christie and Trump are proposing, runs against the very purpose of having an independent federal bureaucracy at all.

Well, that’s not true. Trump was talking about Tiffany in 1994, specifically about what a great rack she would have when she grew up.

Scottishdragon  Jul 20, 2016 • 1:25:38pm

re: #180 Sir John Barron

Yeah, I saw that too.

However, an independent civil service is vital to regulatory functions and Trump and Christie are proposing to throw all of that away.

We will get active drug and food corporate honchos still on their respective boards getting put in charge of the FDA, Duke Power running the EPA and so on. That is the radical step they have proposed…the abolishment of non partisan and impartial bureaucracy and allowing business leaders to take those offices while remaining in business.

I cannot tell you how much this is utterly against what the Founders believed in. They didn’t give a shit about a man in office having an affair while married. They cared a great deal about even a hint of government favoritism in business and finance.

The part where she’s mentioned in the article:

Meredith McIver, who co-wrote Trump tomes including “Trump 101: The Way to Success,” also works as a ghostwriter for Trump and worked with him on blog posts and Q & A’s for Trump University, according to Sexton.

“Certainly Miss McGiver [sic] created content for our newsletter and our blog, but, you know, it was fairly collaborative. Mr. Trump was always — he would come up with often the topic and then ultimately would approve the — the copy as well,” Sexton said in a deposition.

Funny you mentioned that:

The Texas Lt Governor suggested the 1st Amendment does not cover criticism of cops:

And he is now demanding that a new AG under Trump take down Black Lives Matter…

“Patrick has been critical of the Black Lives Matter movement, earlier this month blaming the deadly shooting of police officers in Dallas on anti-police rhetoric and Black Lives Matter protests.”

Yep, just like how anti-Muslim rhetoric and accusing your political opponents of treason doesn’t lead to mass slaughter like the one in Norway, right Lt. Patrick?

Would it really surprise anybody at this point if it turned out that “Meredith” didn’t exist and she was created from whole cloth to be a convenient scapegoat?

Well, if Meredith doesn’t exist then her being a Trump employee working on a political speech is not a FEC violation. The cover up has a built-in cover up!
