Seven Traitors in U.S. History… Cantos

To be a treasonist one must believe

Themselves much smarter than others perceive

We only know of heretics who failed

Apostates caught who were finally curtailed

Throughout time there must been one or two

Turncoats who succeeded, schemers no one knew

This is a short list of failures, notable

U.S. traitors, some are even quotable.

“Let me die in this old uniform in which I fought my battles. May God forgive me for ever having put on another.”

General Benedict Arnold

During the Revolutionary war

A gallant hero destined for folklore

Won Ticonderoga, Brit’s garrison,

Scored Lake Champlain, hindering an invasion

He delivered British General Burgoyne

But still felt deprived of recognition

As such—

He offered the British West Point, the plot failed

Once discovered the famed deserter hightailed

Escaping over British battle lines,

The year was 1779

As traitors go it is no mystery

He’s the most second most famous in U.S. history.

~~~~~~~~

“Law is whatever is boldly asserted and plausibly maintained.”

Aaron Burr

Infamy lies with a dual that brought end

To life **spoiler alert** for Alexander Hamilton

Charged with murder, but he was never tried

Traitorous acts after Hamilton died:

Burr attempted to amass an army, predatory

To secure, the Louisiana Territory

For the Brits— Burr asked the help of a General, (beyond belief)

Of the U.S. Army: the Commander in Chief

Wilkinson warned PotUS Jefferson of the crime

Burr claimed innocence, didn’t do any time.

When the “Cipher Letter” penned by Burr, was published in a paper

(Said letter intended for Wilkinson, detailing the treasonous caper)

Burr fled from the colonies after a four year journey

Returned to live out his life as a New York attorney

~~~~~~~~~~~

“I realized that the only threat to my mission was a jammed copy machine.”

John Walker Jr.

It was the year 1967,

This Naval Officer became a felon

Went to the Soviet Embassy, D.C.,

With information for the KGB

17 years Walker sold Russia the means

To decode messages of nuclear submarines,

Gave the KGB intel of U.S. military

from 1971 to 1973,

John Walker Jr gave Moscow the likes

To warn North Vietnam of pending airstrikes

Sold nuclear launching procedures for

Missiles fired, in the event of a war.

~~~~~~~~~

“You might as well ask why a middle aged man with no criminal record might put a paper bag over his head and rob a bank. I acted out of personal desperation.”

Aldrich Ames

CIA veteran 31 years

Exposed over 100 of his peers

10 deaths resulted from his treason

He detailed his crimes, his wife was the reason

Her sentence allayed, this KGB mole

Will serve a life sentence, without parole

~~~~~~~

“What took you so long?”

Robert Hanssen

Hanssen’s espionage has been described by the DOJ:

“Possibly the worst intelligence disaster” to this day

As an FBI counterintelligence Agent,

He sold thousands of classified documents

To the KGB

Detailing strategies

To take place in the event of nuclear war

Developments in weapons tech, and more

Avoiding the death penalty, this mole too

Is serving 15 life sentences- no parole for you

~~~~~

“Well, when the president does it, that means it is not illegal.”

President Richard Nixon

Arguably the most second most egregious

Modern day American traitor, who wanted allegiance

He, in order to win the presidency,

Negotiated with South Vietnam, secretly

Convincing them not to end the Vietnam war

Promising them, if elected, he’d give them more

30,000 dead American soldiers, the price paid

And millions of Vietnamese lives lost for Nixon’s crusade

Once a cheat, always a cheat— President Dick

Watergate: break ins, bugging and more dirty tricks

He resigned in disgrace, but his new V.P. Ford

Pardoned him, which caused a bit of discord

~~~~~~~

I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything,”

Fauxtus Donald Trump

He conspired with Russia, cheated and stole

Making the White House America’s “shit hole”

He will be indicted and removed from his position

His cleptocratic regime, this crime boss politician,

Misogynistic racist, who wants an all white nation

And undermined healthcare, ended bank regulations

Isolated America from allies, takes endless golf vacations

Wants to sell the U.S. to friends by way of privatization

Destroying the environment for profit, cut taxes for the rich,

Russia is in the White House, Donald Trump is Putin’s bitch

He tortures immigrants and their children.

Trump, toxic buffoon, is this traitor list’s end

Sunday Morning Twerking Trump

Donald J.Trump has re-defined the word “twerking”— In days of yore twerking was a “dance”, frowned upon in school gymnasiums nationwide, primarily engaging the gluteus maximus (junk in the trunk). In modern times, it is what the ass-hat in chief, Donald J.Trump, does on any given day. He is tweeting, and claiming to work— twerking.

He says he’s working, but he’s tweeting and golfing.

Perhaps he thinks himself a pro golfer. We are essentially paying him to golf, $74 million to date in taxpayer dollars, so he is technically correct. How much do other golf pros make?

Trump Golf Count

Donald J. Trump is currently on a two week, taxpayer funded twerking vacation. Two weeks, for a man who has spent 1 in 3 days since his (astounding crowd size) inauguration, at one of his properties.

Donald J. Trump’s haphazard spending of our tax dollars brings to mind the question of his contribution to the tax tills . When are we going to see them?

Let me state the obvious: Donald Trump is a liar.

Let’s examine one of this morning’s many tweets:

*False— Real earnings for all Americans have decreased since his tax scam.

The 1% grabbed 82% of all wealth created in 2017

If only we were all in the top 1%…

‘Eye-popping’ payouts for CEOs follow Trump’s tax cuts – POLITICO

Next:

*False, false, false, and false—

The dossier is real, Donald J. Trump is a traitor, Fox is propaganda, and Bob Mueller is a Republican war hero.

This next one is a day old loaf—

Where to begin? Does anyone else detect the blatant racism in this tweet— jumping from employment numbers for African Americans and Hispanics, to prison reform?

“Now I’m pushing for prison reform…” ~Donald J Trump

*False—

“Prison reform” is code for privatization of prisons. Prison for profit— another Trump scam:

“I’m proud to have fought for and secured the LOWEST African American and Hispanic unemployment rates in history.” ~Donald J. Trump

*False—

He has done nothing in this regard except ride in Obama’s wake.

“I will never stop fighting for Americans.” ~Donald J Trump

Hmm… *False—

Why did he hire only one American worker last year for Mar-a-LaGo resort? Thousands of Americans applied but he, as always, brought in temporary low wage earning guest workers from other countries. He increased the H2B visa program last year…for himself. This explains how he “fought”, for himself.

I wish we could go back to the days when twerking was just an obnoxious dance.

Where is the Nunes Indictment?… a limerick

Why does Nunes still work for the US

Remain a free man- anyone’s guess

His proven corruption

Caught on tape obstruction

This traitor has, as good as, confessed

Captured on a Secret Recording, Devin Nunes Says the Quiet Part Out Loud

Mueller, Mueller…

Nunes “Goes Away”… a limerick

Devin Nunes, a secret recording

An unethical prick, we had warning

Middle name Memo

A Kremlin kowtow

House intel serves Trump well… it’s rewarding

Secret recording shows GOP’s Nunes saying Rosenstein impeachment would delay Supreme Court pick

Need a- “How to look guilty” instruction?

Devin Nunes needs no introduction

Indictments in the air

I really don’t care

His guilt has a strong stench of obstruction

Chris Collins, First In, First Out

“Today, we announce criminal charges against Christopher Collins, a United States congressman. Congressman Collins is charged with insider trading and lying to the FBI,” ~US Attorney Geoffrey Berman of the Southern District of New York

cnn.it/2AS7ikX

Representative Chris Collins (R-NY), Trump’s earliest congressional supporter, who jumped on team Trump on February 24, 2016, and who had been calling for an end to the Mueller investigation…

has been arrested by the FBI, on securities fraud charges, wire fraud, and is charged with making false statements. He surrendered to law enforcement on August 8, 2018.

Womp, womp.

How ironic it is that Chris Collins had been calling to end the Mueller investigation which, had he succeeded, would have kept him from being indicted.

It would be safe to bet others who are eager to see Mueller “wrap it up” (Nunes) are motivated by worries of succumbing to the same fate.

How unfortunate it is that Representative Collins was unable to change laws against insider trading in time to save himself.

Thoughts and Prayers.

Perhaps in 20 or so years, when he’s released from prison, he can take up the cause again.

First in, first out GOP Rep Chris Collins, a fine example of the political corruption that has become synonymous with Fauxtus 45.

Who will be next?
