Why Is It Not Treason?

Obama will allow the avowed enemy of the United States to continue to make atomic bombs, in an official agreement.

U.S. Caves to Key Iranian Demands as Nuke Deal Comes Together
Limited options for Congress as Obama seeks to bypass lawmakers

LAUSSANE, Switzerland—The Obama administration is giving in to Iranian demands about the scope of its nuclear program as negotiators work to finalize a framework agreement in the coming days, according to sources familiar with the administration’s position in the negotiations.

U.S. negotiators are said to have given up ground on demands that Iran be forced to disclose the full range of its nuclear activities at the outset of a nuclear deal, a concession experts say would gut the verification the Obama administration has vowed would stand as the crux of a deal with Iran.

Until recently, the Obama administration had maintained that it would guarantee oversight on Tehran’s program well into the future, and that it would take the necessary steps to ensure that oversight would be effective. The issue has now emerged as a key sticking point in the talks.

Concern from sources familiar with U.S. concessions in the talks comes amid reports that Iran could be permitted to continue running nuclear centrifuges at an underground site once suspected of housing illicit activities.
Obama reserves his "principles" for attacks on US allies. For enemies of the west, he is unprincipled. As he is for political enemies within the USA.

The congress is neutered. There are the Republicans, who rightly (but not excusably) fear the backlash of impeaching Obama, and then there is the Left in Congress who have all but voted Obama imperator honors upon their Dear Leader, laying their birthright, a check and balance to the power of the executive, at the feet of their party. Then there have been the countless judicial and cabinet appointments made by leftists like Obama and Clinton sailed through confirmation, while the same Dems who demanded up and down votes filibustered any nominee that wasn't to their liking --that is malleable to their needs.

So we have inept federal government doing its damnedest to proliferate nuclear weapons to states who have openly declared their desire to use them. As I've said many times, each day that passes the probability of a nuclear weapon being used in anger approaches zero. It will happen again, I just don't know where or when.

No matter what the year, the Left always seems mostly concerned with sawing off the branch that supports it. The fact that the rest of us sit on this particular branch is what disturbs me.

Obama reminds me of that German pilot who calmly steered a jet full of people right into a mountain. I am sure he was perfectly justified in his own mind, but from the outside, it seems like what it is - evil, the last gasp of an ego that has decided it is better to rule in Hell than serve in Heaven. Or on earth.
