President Trump has committed treason

President Trump broke any number of laws and norms during his ruinous four-year reign. He just added one more on the way out: treason. He lost the House in 2018. He lost the presidency in November. He lost the Senate on Tuesday. And on Wednesday, with nothing left to lose, he rallied a violent mob to attack the U.S. Capitol in hopes of pressuring lawmakers to toss out the election results, ignore the will of the people, and install him as president for another term.

The framers would have seen the mob at the Capitol as traitors

The scenes are nearly unbelievable: An armed mob storming the U.S. Capitol to disrupt the counting of the electoral votes.

Worse Than Treason

“We are what we pretend to be,” Kurt Vonnegut wrote in the opening of his 1962 novel, Mother Night, “and so we must be careful what we pretend to be.” Republicans in Congress are pretending to be seditionists—and so they have become, in fact, seditionists. Forget all the whispered denials...

What is sedition?

On Wednesday (Jan. 6), armed supporters of President Donald Trump forced their way into the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., waving Confederate and pro-Trump flags as they stormed the steps and breached the building. Shortly before the rioters broke into the Capitol, President Trump spoke at a rally saying "we will never concede," referring to the election that he lost to President-elect Joe Biden by more than 7 million votes, The New York Times reported. Trump also encouraged his followers to march on the Capitol, according to The Times.


I respect freedom of what people believe. I may not agree with it, but I accept that. However, this is treason!. It is time for all of us, whether you voted for Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, independent, or others to wake up, come to our knees to pray, and rebuke and condemn the behavior by Trumpies. And we all need to seriously ponder how we got to this point as a country.
