Do you know who Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were? Do you know what they did? Do you know what happened to them? I’ll save you a trip to Wikipedia: They sold us out to the Rooskies and when we caught them, we sent them to the chair. Those were the days. Professional bullsh-t artists like Alan Dershowitz will peddle all manner of oxymoronic excuses for the Rosenbergs, such as the ludicrous notion that they were both guilty and framed simultaneously. But the bottom line is this: They betrayed the United States of America, and they received exactly what they had coming to them.
Since that time, we’ve gone pitifully soft on those who betray our nation, though there are notable exceptions. We more than likely killed Adam Yahiye Gadahn with a drone strike after indicting him for treason, but others, such as Aldrich Ames, Nidal Malik Hasan, and Robert Hanssen all continue to live their lives in supermax prisons at the taxpayers’ expense. Must be nice.
Jane Fonda has enjoyed a relatively successful career after taking sides with North Vietnam during our fruitless war in Southeast Asia (although I suppose it wasn’t entirely fruitless, as we did kill upwards of 1,000,000 commies). Many people to this day praise her for spitting in the faces of our captured servicemen. I don’t care how funny Grace and Frankie is, and I don’t care how smokin’ hot she looked in Barbarella (she’s still hot), she took sides with the enemy against us in a time of war. We should have constructed the gallows and stretched her neck the moment she returned from her vacation in Hanoi.
In our present day, traitor Bowe Bergdahl may finally get some measure of payback for desertion and “misbehavior before the enemy.” He’ll more than likely end up in a supermax the way Hanssen and Ames did, eeking out a miserable life on our dime. And what was the price of obtaining him from the enemy? Islamo-fascist and charlatan Barack Hussein Obama released five of his compatriots from Gitmo so they could carry on their anti-American fanaticism in the Middle East. Obama even gave Bergdahl’s parents a place of honor in the Rose Garden where Bowe’s father, Bob, praised Allah. Whatever happens to Bergdahl, it won’t be enough, as the six soldiers who died seeking him out are gone forever. Life in prison is too good for him. A swift execution may be as close as we can get to making things right.
This brings us to Hillary Clinton, the woman who reportedly paid millions for a fictional dossier on President Trump, the same dossier that was used as a motive to spy on elements of the president’s election campaign. This is the woman who, as Secretary of State, approved the Uranium One deal that sold up to twenty percent of our uranium to the Russians in exchange for lucrative donations to the Clinton Foundation and a $500,000 paycheck to Bill Clinton for a single speech. This is the same woman who castigates Russia for being our number one geo-political foe only out of bitterness and sour grapes. Russia may or may not be an enemy to the United States, but we can follow the money and know for sure that Moscow is a friend of the Clintons.
The Rosenbergs and most other traitors in our history at least had some sort of ideological impetus behind their betrayals. They believed in something greater than themselves and they took the risk knowing full well their treason could lead to their capture and execution. Hillary Clinton, through her foundation/money laundering apparatus, sought to only enrich herself by her treachery. There was no greater purpose for her other than accumulating wealth and power. And if Hanoi Jane deserves to have been hung for aiding the enemy during war time, than what can we conclude about Clinton’s deserved fate for trading our vast national resources to Russia for her own personal gain?
There isn’t much justice in the world these days, and none of us should be surprised if Hillary Clinton gets away with it again. But there should be justice and it should be swift and brutal. Hillary Clinton should be hanged for selling us out to the Russians, the same way we fried the Rosenbergs for selling us out to the Soviet Russians. She should be hanged by the neck until dead and it should be done publicly. It should be televised. Her and Bill both, and anyone else who profited by the betrayal, maybe their whole rotten family. It should be a national holiday, and every ten years or so we should trot their bones out on a coast-to-coast tour of the country the way the Brits used to do with Cromwell.
We must have a zero-tolerance policy for traitors. We must make afraid anyone who contemplates a betrayal of our nation, whether it be for personal gain or for the encouragement of a hostile ideology.
