This is a letter to our friends –

It’s on my heart to ask

It has been, I believe, almost 3 years since the Benghazi attack. This column was among the few, that day, that shouted “TREASON!” Specifically – Treason in the White House.

Since that day evidence of treason has been piling up in event after event.

The words of Patrick Henry come to mind.

“They tell us, sir, that we are weak – unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when will we be stronger? Will it be next week, or next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a [federal] guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies have bound us hand and foot?”

It is on my heart to ask every law-maker, “Are you busy polishing the brass on the Titanic?” Stop “soothing” us with rhetoric and show us some leadership. The founders gave the purse strings exclusively to the House of Representatives [Article I Section 7].

Granted: The President and his supporters will stand fast and refuse to budge. OK: Suppose the true Patriots in the legislature do the same? Without a Bill originating in the House of Representatives, not a single unauthorized federal check may be written!

Suppose we call their stubborn bluff and shut down the goose that keeps laying golden eggs for the left. I believe there would be howls and screams from the left. On the other hand, I believe the nation as a whole would send a resounding shout toward Heaven in approval.

If I am right – Well praise the Lord. If I am wrong and the patient dies on the table from the trauma – We are dying anyway! “But when will we be stronger? Will it be next week, or next year?”

If the Patriot law-makers cannot call it “treason” now, then when will there ever be another opportunity. With the will to do so, the legislature is well able to bring charges and hear the case within days. I believe arguments to the contrary notwithstanding.

Doing what is right, because it is right, will always bring positive, often unexpected, results. In the face of righteousness – unrighteousness becomes a paper tiger. BUT it requires courage and steadfastness!
