Find More History Of United States Press Releases
The United States has a long and colorful history of individuals who have betrayed the country and can honestly be called traitors. Even before the country was fully independent from Great Britain during the Revolutionary War, one of its most decorated war heroes, Benedict Arnold, was discovered in a plan to turn over the crucial fort at West Point, later to become the Army Academy, to the British. Fortunately, his plan was discovered before the “redcoats” were able to take up residence in the fort with such a lovely vista of the Hudson River Valley, but he was still named a traitor.
Treason, the crime that makes a person a traitor, was deemed to be an important enough crime with enough grey areas in its prosecution that it is included in the United States Constitution. The U.S. Constitution includes treason in Article Three, the article devoted to the judiciary. It states, in section three of Article Three, that a person “shall not be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.” The section goes on to say that Congress is given the power to determine adequate punishment for treason. Treason was deemed such a volatile charge that special evidentiary rules were included to prevent its misapplication or overuse.
By definition, treason is a crime that punishes extreme instances of disloyalty to one’s nation or sovereign. In the historical context, treason was levied against those who attempted to murder or accomplished a murder of one of his or her social superiors, such as a murder of a husband by his wife. While we no longer recognize the second instance of treason, the first is still applicable.
In order for a person to be named a convicted traitor, the court or prosecution must prove that the individual intended to act against the country. There are two crucial elements to the crime that must be in place before a single person can be charged with treason. First, the individual who committed the act must actually own an allegiance to the United States. This means that an individual that comes to the United States for the purpose of doing something against the state cannot be convicted of treason or even tried for it because he or she does not owe an allegiance to the United States. The person is not a citizen, a resident, etc.
The second crucial part of any treason charge is that there are two witnesses to the action or its planning. The two witnesses are important because it ensures, to a certain degree, that the individual is not arrested on an anonymous tip or some other disingenuous tip made out of spite. The two witnesses do not have to be necessarily “good guys;” they just have to have witnessed the traitorous act or its planning.
An example of a recent individual against whom charges of treason were considered was the young man from the West Coast that was caught in Afghanistan fighting against the Americans. One of the big questions when decided to try him for treason was whether he actually owed an allegiance to the United States.
Treason is a serious crime that is almost as old as time itself.
The West Palm Beach criminal lawyers of Eric N Klein & Associates have an established reputation for hard work and are devoted to seeing that justice is served for all.

Black History Month is celebrated by many of us because honoring the achievements of the extraordinary people who have contributed so much to America’s diversity is a noble and meaningful undertaking. Last year marked the 50TH anniversary since the enactment of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; a fight for equality that took centuries to achieve. And while some studies of slavery in America relegate the “Gullah” culture to a historical footnote, it is estimated that as many as 75% of African Americans entered the country via the “Lowcountry” of South Carolina; the home of the Gullah.
Hundreds of years of blending West African, European and Native American ethnicities have resulted in a culture that is rich in tradition and boasts amazing crafts, art, music and even a distinctive language. Gullah.TV’s mission is to educate the public about the Gullah culture and create an appreciation of the extraordinary history and traditions of the Gullah people. This is accomplished by producing exclusive Gullah music CD’s and DVD videos that entertain and enlighten people of all ages.
The latest DVD, “Circle Unbroken”, tells of the Gullah Journey from Africa to America. It is an inspiring celebration of the Gullah people in words and music, narrated by one of America’s preeminent cultural historians, Anita Singleton-Prather, “the First Lady of Gullah™ and The Gullah Kinfolk. The soundtrack from this television special is also available as an audio CD.
To celebrate Black History Month, Gullah.TV is offering an exclusive promotion to introduce the Gullah story to the entire family. Every purchase of the “Circle Unbroken” DVD will include a free DVD, “Tales from the Land of Gullah for Kids”; a $ 14.98 value.
“This month Gullah.TV celebrates the history of all African Americans and specifically the Gullah people as we recognize the contributions they have made to America. Our DVD’s tell their inspirational story in a way that captivates and educates”, says Ron Small, Senior Partner at Anchor Media Group and the producer of “Circle Unbroken.” “We have a passion for all things Gullah!”

We are approaching the three year anniversary of the Supreme Court's January 2010 decision, Citizens United. Recall that Citizens United allows unlimited spending on political campaigns by outside groups, including corporations.
Despite two federal elections and 1,000 or so days passing since Citizens United was decided, the coalition determined to roll back the Court's decision has thus far failed to stop corporate spending from poisoning our democracy.

And as always please feel free to post, re-post, and share.
The treatment of peaceful protesters compared to the unruly and sometimes violent crowds of stampeding Black Friday shoppers couldn't be more different. While the former is ostracized and forcibly removed by police, the latter is encouraged to come out for a competitive brawl over marked off goods. Nowhere is this contrast more clearly defined than in the police treatment of Walmart protesters over the last 24 hours.
These are human beings goddamnit, their lives have value!
I’m most likely preaching to the choir and hope the my voice can add to the thousands literally starving for change here in the first world of the United States, and push the issue of labor rights just a bit further. Lets take a look at today’s Huffington Post Black Friday reports. Seriously go take a look I’ll wait… … … … So are you mad or disgusted yet? I hope so. There is a time for anger, righteous anger. That time is now.
Personally I have seen both sides. I worked those way before pre-dawn hours at a big box store for many years. And been a witness to appalling customer behavior, intentional stock shortages and staff pushed beyond levels of decency by management. It would easy to point the blame at retailers like Wal-Mart and say. “You’re an evil corporation that is ruining people’s lives and depriving your employees of a decent standard of living.” And why this is generally true. It’s much harder to stand in front of that dressing room mirror and say “My unconscious consumption is ruining people’s lives and depriving people around the world including Americans a decent standard of living.”
If Americans were more conscious about where and how their money was spent the tide of violence and aggression that has become the day after Thanksgiving could then and only then be stemmed. Private corporations are more democratic than we give them credit for. Your wallet casts a vote every time you exchange currency for goods and the cash register is the ballot box. Every time you purchase a product from a retailer or manufacturer that mistreats its employees you are showing your explicit approval of that companies practices and give them the incentive and capital to not only continue but to expand their immoral practices.
I know its hard not to do this. Most of us work shit jobs that pay shit wages so in return the only places we can shop are places that treat people like shit. It’s a circle that is quickly destroying our nations middle class. I don’t have all the answers on how to break this cycle but I know where we can start. Buy less things for a start. By doing this you can save money. So when it is time to make that purchase of something you need you can spend the extra money to buy something of quality and if possible buy something made in America. We didnt get to this sorry state overnight so it’s going to take time to get us out of it. The only ones with the power to fix this is us, the consumer. The American worker and our very way of life is depending on us.
Look, I’m no hermit. To quote the Dennis Leary song Asshole “I like football and porno and books about war” I like fatty foods and I don’t drive a hybrid and I don’t buy organic. Everyone has their cross to bear. Mine is video games. It’s hard for me to not pull the trigger on the newest murder simulator released every other week. But I have gotten to the point that before I buy that new game I’ll take a look at my shelf and on my computer hard drive and see all the games that have that have gone unfinished and come to the realization that whatever new virtual world that a company is pushing on me at the time is not going to enhance my experience in my actual physical reality. I imagine it’s like kicking an addiction. I still have the trigger to buy new games but I don’t follow through. Your burden might be shoes, clothes or electronics. But make no mistake by consuming these cheap poorly made goods you are consuming the very heart and soul of America.
Before you buy slow down. Think, “Do I need this?” and “what is the real cost of this item in human capital. Am I contributing to suffering or contributing to a living for another human being or a fellow American?”If you do what you know is right with your hard-earned dollars then you will change your life and others for the better.
"Reverend Billy" wants you to stop shopping. Especially today. Your buying products that have been shipped from sweat shops in Asia caused Hurricane Sandy. Why do you continue to hurt the earth?
The Church Of Stop Shopping believes we are the problem, and that the 99% is somehow related to their overall message. Maybe it's just an attention getter.
Billy even has a choir:
