Richard Nixon was forced to resign when it became increasingly evident that he was behind a series of highly-illegal acts. The crooked politician at the highest level of government labored under the mistaken belief that he was above the law, that being the president meant that he was no longer bound to obey the Constitution.
He was wrong and as egregious as his betrayal was, one thing can be said about the Watergate Scandal: nobody was killed as a result of Nixon’s crimes.
We cannot say the same thing about President Obama and Hillary Clinton’s crimes.
Rocker and outspoken conservative superstar Ted Nugent recently vented his outrage on Facebook and boldly proclaimed that both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton ought to be hung for the treason which led to American deaths.
Though the 44th president has accumulated a shocking list of scandals and abuses perpetrated against the American people, the most-alarming are the ones where human lives were snuffed-out due to this administration’s policies.
Operation Fast and Furious, a failed Obama Department of Justice operation meant to allegedly track weapons as they make their way from American gun stores to Mexican drug cartels, left Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry dead and as investigators closed-in on former Attorney General Eric Holder, Obama rushed to cloak him in the protection of the executive branch and cited executive privilege.
The blood of Brian Terry, however, is on the hands of Obama and Holder.
Similarly, the blood of four slain Americans rests upon the hands of Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Despite repeated requests for additional security, Obama’s State Department did nothing to enhance the protection of Ambassador Chris Stevens and the Americans stationed in Libya.
When the consulate was under attack, well-trained Americans who were merely down the road from the consulate were issued a stand-down order and initially prevented from assisting to save lives. As a result, two Americans, including the ambassador, were killed.
When these same Americans came under attack by the same terrorists who murdered our ambassador, the State Department did not intervene. They did not scramble jets; they did not launch a rescue operation. These Americans were left to die and two more did before securing help from Libyan forces.
As the consulate smoldered, the Obama Administration hustled to fabricate a preposterous narrative about a protest gone awry. Since that narrative has fallen apart, Obama’s State Department has circled the wagons and spent years stonewalling congressional investigators who have sought the truth.
Even the most-forgiving interpretations of events yields a conclusion that at best, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are guilty of severe dereliction of duty, criminal negligence that resulted in multiple homicides and being accessories after the fact in their attempts to obstruct the pursuit of justice.
More likely, however, the duo are guilty of treason in their remarkable aiding of the enemy who invaded sovereign U.S. soil.
Nugent evidently shares this belief and recently took to Facebook to share his desire for justice. His post read, in part:
“Our unholy rotten soulless criminal America destroying government killed 4 Americans in Banghazi. Period! What sort of chimpass punk would deny security, turn down 61 requests for security, then tell US forces to STAND DOWN when they were ready to kickass on the allapukes & save American lives! Obama & Clinton, thats who. They should be tried for treason & hung. Our entire ****up gvt must be cleansed asap.”
The post also included a lengthy explanation about what really happened that night in Benghazi according to Benghazi security officer Kris “Tanto” Paronto who was on the ground that night and awaited help that never came. The post is lengthy, but well-worth checking-out.
According to Paronto, the stand-down order sealed their fate and help could have arrived. Clinton and the highly-secretive Obama Administration, however, have maintained that no such order took place.
I wonder who should be believed in this scenario: the one on the ground? Or the people who began lying immediately following the attack?
What do you think? Did Nugent go too far? Or should Americans erect gallows?
