    • Why Are Democrats Supporting A Bill That Would End Death Penalty For Treason By Tim Brown Dec 31, 2013 A bill that was proposed by Maryland Democrat Rep. Donna Edwards and seven other Democrats, earlier this year, would eliminate the possibility of imposing the death penalty for a variety of federal offenses. Among those crimes would be treason and espionage. The bill has been largely ignored in the media, but recently surfaced at The Hill. According to HR 3741, the Federal Death Penalty Abolition Act, the death penalty could not be enacted for assassination or kidnapping that would result in the death of the president, the vice president or a member of Congress. The bill would eliminate the death penalty for those who would engage in using a weapon of mass destruction or war crimes. I am one that believes that the states can handle quite a bit of the issues regarding death penalty cases (incidentally, many listed could fall under that purview), it would seem that treason and espionage would be serious enough to warrant the death penalty. Several of those
    • issues are also listed in the bill, including aircraft hijackings, sexual abuse, bank robberies, deliberate wrecking of a train, torture and child abuse. For those, like myself who are pro-life, the death penalty could not be imposed on someone that brought about the death of an unborn child. We are talking justice here, not the choice to murder. The Hill reports: The legislation specifically prevents anyone from being sentenced to death or put to death for federal offenses after the bill becomes law. Anyone who was already sentenced to death for a federal crime prior to the bill taking effect would have that sentence reduced to a lifetime prison sentence without any possibility of parole. Dr. Eowyn notes the following: Nothing happens in politics without a reason. Certainly, members of the United States Congress, who are more preoccupied with fundraising for their reelection than with legislating, don’t propose bills without a reason. We must therefore ask ourselves the reason for HR 3741. Is it motivated by Altruism, the highest and most selfless form of charity?
    • The answer, I submit, can be found in two clues: 1. The bill stretches credulity by the sheer scope of the crimes for the elimination of death penalty as punishment, including even for such egregious acts as genocide, mutiny, sedition, murder by use of a weapon of mass destruction (not even nuclear bomb or poison gas?), not to mention assassination of the U.S. president or vice-president, and of members of Congress. If genocide doesn’t warrant the death penalty (think Hitler), what would? Why not just abolish the death penalty altogether? 2. The bill’s sponsors: They are eight — a sponsor and 7 co-sponsors: Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.), the sponsor of HR 3741. Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) Keith Ellison (D-Minn.): the first Muslim to be elected to the U.S. Congress. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) Hank Johnson (D-Ga.): the bright bulb who thinks the island of Guam would tip over because of more U.S. troops. • John Lewis (D-Ga.) • Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) • José Serrano (D-N.Y.) • • • • • In other words, the bill’s eight sponsors, being all “Progressive” Democrats are not individuals notable for their sweetness and light and altruistic love of humanity. If they were, they wouldn’t be “Progressives” who support the killing of the most innocent and defenseless of human beings — the unborn. The logical conclusion, therefore, is this: HR 3741′s real objective is to eliminate the death penalty for TREASON because Democrats think Barack Hussein Obama may be arrested and tried for treason. I’ll go one step further than Dr. Eowyn. I would say it’s not just about protecting Obama, but about protecting treasonous elected officials in the federal government, including those that are supporting it. What say you? THIS PROVES THE CONGRESS KNOWS THEY'RE BREAKING LAW THEY KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THERE DOING. HEY CONGRESS HEED THESE WORDS YOU ARE AND HAVE BEEN COOPERATING WITH EVIL THAT’S WHY YOU WANT TO EXEMPT YOUR SELVES FROM PROSECUTION. BUT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE KNOW WHAT YOU'VE BEEN UP TO. YOU CAN'T HIDE YOUR CRIMES ANYMORE ALL OF YOU ARE PIECE OF TRASH TRAITORS NO MATTER WHAT LAWS YOU PASS. N.W.O YOU AND YOUR HELPERS WILL BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE.
