Traitors in America; Packs of Benedict Arnolds
By Rob Kall
Some trusted, valued institutions and people are no longer trustworthy. Some of them have become outright traitors as the world experiences a bottom up revolution. The traitors are top down feudal lords fighting to hold on to their keeps and castles.

Things change. Sometimes they change massively and what we once took for granted is no longer the same.
That's happened here in America. Trusted, valued institutions and people are no longer trustworthy. Some of them have become outright traitors as the world experiences a bottom up revolution. The traitors are top down feudal lords fighting to hold on to their keeps and castles. Minus the feudal metaphor, they are, bottom line, engaging in treasonous actions and policies that harm the US and its middle class. Benedict Arnold betrayed the US by accepting command of a fort at West Point, all the time plotting with the British to hand the fort over to their control. Today's traitors are, for power and money, betraying American values, the constitution, the middle class and selling out our rights and our resources.
Here's the beginning of a list of Traitors and how they betray America and Americans
The Five Supreme Court who produced the Citizens United Ruling.
Members of Congress Who Support CItizens United
Transnational Fortune 1000 Corporations
Not anymore. The biggest corporations are offshoring their best jobs, their big profits and often, their headquarters. The USA's best interests are no longer synonymous with these corporations best interests. Now, with Citizens United, even corporations with US headquarters, when they spend money on US elections, are using funds and resources that are at least in part from outside the US. That's intolerable. That's treasonous.
The people who develop and execute these policies are the CEOs and top executives at the biggest companies.They make their obscene salaries by using corporate resources for stock buybacks instead of hiring workers or developing new products, services and markets. They are traitors and often worse-- criminals whose policies cause death and suffering.
Globalization and global trade deals and their supporters
The Mainstream Media, the Rightwing Media, even Some of the Liberal Media, like NY Times and WaPo
Top-Down Turncoats Fighting a Bottom Up Future
The good news is that there is a bottom-up revolution happening in the USA and throughout the world. People coming together, cooperating, acting interdependently are producing direct democracy. This new way of thinking and acting is really very old.It's the way humans and their ancestors lived for a million years, in indigenous tribal culture, before civilization brought domination, control, slavery, hierarchy and centralization.
There is a future where civilization exists with equalization, decentralization, fairness and respect for all, including nature. We're seeing the beginnings of this in Argentina, with the Arab Spring, Occupy Wall Street. Certainly this is an emerging process and it is far from complete, full bloom. It is new journey for humanity and we are at the beginning of a long road, still learning how to walk, how to wield our power.
The top-down powers-- particularly the most powerful people and groups mentioned above-- will not take this laying down. They are doing all they can to buttress and consolidate their power, their positions, and to weaken the rest of us. We see it in their efforts to control or squelch the internet, to eliminate privacy, to monetize broadband wireless, which should be accessible by all, like roads, streets and public education-- as an investment in our future.
Part of the challenge is the traitors described above have infected most Americans with boiled frog syndrome. Throw a frog into boiling water and it jumps out to save its life. But put a frog in cold water and gradually heat it to boiling and you get a cooked, dead frog. Americans have been simmering, losing more rights, losing good jobs, with threats of loss of the internet, loss of access to future opportunities. We have to help the hundreds of millions of Americans who are victims to wake up and start fighting for themselves. In China, censorship is used to prevent people from engaging in mass actions. In the US, the media is used to distract people and keep them asleep"gradually boiling. The alternative media and the Occupy Wall Street movement are the best hopes for the future of the American middle class.
Just to be totally clear, Barack Obama is also on this list. Just today, a leaked document about the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement shows that Obama is breaking his promises, selling out America, voters and constitutional rights in the worst trade agreement ever-- and one designed to be the last.
