Emphasis mine:

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.” — Marcus Tullius Cicero (106 BC – 43 BC)

Social Security Poster: old man

Or so they promised!

On the September 1, 2011 episode of Radio Liberty with Dr. Stan Monteith, John Stormer, author of None Dare Call it Treason, who exposed a communist conspiracy in the United States in the 1960s, admitted to being dependent on the socialist program of Social Security (starting at 41:18 and edited to remove pause words).

What we’re going to see, if some conservatives should get control of government in 2012 and even start to try and deal with things like entitlements, and part of that — of course I’m on Social Security, so I want to keep that (chuckles) — I’m livin’ on it.

Social Security is the unconstitutional and unlawful program passed by Congress in 1935, of which the first payment was made in 1940, which predictably made millions of American seniors dependent on government for a major source of their income, instead of their own savings and the help of their family, as used to be the case, and was the case for the first 159 years in the United States.

Dr. Stan has said that he feels it his patriotic duty to collect all of his Social Security benefits in order to bring the system down as soon as possible. I can certainly see the justification for taking all the money you’ve put into it at least, even if the program is unconstitutional.

Dr. Stan isn’t dependent on Social Security, however, since he runs a half-a-million dollar a year radio operation since 1993, after over 30 years as an orthopedic surgeon, and he said he doesn’t take a salary for his work, which I find to be very admirable.

I think that John Stormer’s admission that he is dependent on Social Security for his livelihood is a fitting indication of how the program predictably went beyond its promised intention of simply being a safety net for those seniors who would otherwise live in destitute poverty, as opposed to it being a primary source of income. I also note the irony of an author who exposed a communist conspiracy in the United States back in the 1960s later being dependent on a socialist program designed to take away the freedoms of American seniors.

"Treason"

Treason is a word that has been bandied about a lot since 9/11. There are even calls for Bilderberg attendees to be tried for treason.

Article III, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution states:

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.

Notice the use of “them” and “their” in reference to the States, and not the nation state of the United States.

Therefore, levying war against any of the States, or in adhering to the enemies of any of the States, constitutes treason.

However, Congress is vested with the sole power to declare the punishment of treason.

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.

But what constitutes “Enemies” of the States? The Federalist Papers makes no explicit mention of this.

It is a big question, however, since some assert that the States have no “Enemies” in the absence of a formal declaration of war by Congress.

The fact that Congress is vested with the sole powers to declare war and the punishment of treason, is evidence to me that “Enemies” meant and means those that Congress has declared war against.

Without a constitutional declaration of war, “Enemies” can be designated at will, with no accountability, limitation, or common frame of reference on the part of those making that claim.
