Notorious Former Irvine Resident Zach De la Rocha Calls For President Bush To Be "Tried, Hung and Shot "

Paging Mr. De la Rocha...."You have a phone call waiting from the Secret Service". I've had some disagreements with President Bush a lot lately, but that doesn't mean he should be "tried, hung and shot". If ever there was a case to be made of a threat against the President, this is it. Some idiot fan of his might actually take him seriously. Whatever happened to the nice liberals of the Woodstock Era with all their peace symbols, "make love not war talk, etc. Today's young musicans like Rage Against The Machine are vicious people. They need to mellow out. Here's a link to the article about this past weekend's Coachella Music Show.

    Perhaps Mr. De La Rocha is a Constitutional scholar.

    There's an excellent case for convicting George Bush of Treason.

    trea·son
    NOUN:

    Violation of allegiance toward one's country or sovereign, especially the betrayal of one's country by waging war against it or by consciously and purposely acting to aid its enemies.
    A betrayal of trust or confidence.

    Treason:
    treason against the United States shall consist only in levying war against the United States, or any of them; and in adhering to the enemies of the United States, or any of them.

    90 Alleged violations of the guaranty of a republican form of government have been held, of course, to present only political, nonjusticiable issues But, as the discussion in the Convention hereafter noted shows, any effort by violence to deprive a state of a republican form of government would undoubtedly involve conduct amounting to a levying of war against the United States. This link between Art III, § 3, and Art IV, § 4, was made explicit by Tench Coxe. "The United States guarantee to every state in the union a separate republican form of government From thence it follows, that any man or body of men, however rich or powerful, who shall make an alteration in the form of government of any state, whereby the powers thereof shall be attempted to be taken out of the hands of the people at large will stand guilty of high treason, or should a foreign power seduce or over-awe the people of any state, so as to cause them to vest in the families of any ambitious citizens or foreigners the powers of hereditary governors, whether as Kings or Nobles, that such investment of powers would be void in itself, and every person attempting to execute them would also be guilty of treason An Examination of the Constitution for the United States of America, No. IV, reprinted in Ford, op. cit. supra note 18, at 145-46 Coxe, it will be noted, does not seem to limit his doctrine to cases of violence, but it may be doubted that, practically, the situation of a peaceful change of the frame of government would arise.

    § 2381. Treason

    Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
