White House Freaks Out Over Online Petition To Charge Sen. Feinstein With Treason Reaching 50,000 Votes


Warner Todd Huston

A petition to charge Dianne Feinstein with treason that has gotten nearly 50,000 signatures is causing a bit of heartburn in Obama’s White House forcing team Obama to come to Di Fi’s defense.

One of the somewhat silly things that team Obama did when it came to office was to set up a website where Americans could float petitions filled with ideas and issues that they want Obama to address. Now, in theory this idea sounds great. But in practice, Obama just ignores all these things. But they do offer an interesting story from time to time.

White House Freaks Out Over Online Petition To Charge Sen

A recent petition offers one of those stories. It is the petition to charge California Senator Dianne Feinstein with treason for her constant attacks on the U.S. Constitution, the Second Amendment in particular.

The strength of the petition has caused Obama to come to Feinstein’s defense. Ah, schadenfreude.

The anti-DiFi petition was created in December of last year and only five months later it had gained nearly 50,000 signatures. The fifty thousand mark is where Obama’s perpetual political campaign/White House staff have said that they will publicly address an issue directly.

The Petition

Here is the text of the petition:

Try Senator Dianne Feinstein in a Federal Court For Treason To The Constitution
The Constitution was written to restrain the government. No amendment is more important for this purpose than the 2nd amendment. The 2nd amendment was written so the power could be kept with the citizenry in the face of a tyrannical government. It was well understood the Constitution acknowledged certain rights that could not be limited by government.

Senator Dianne Feinstein has made it clear she does not believe in the Constitution or the inalienable rights of Americans to keep and bear arms. She is actively working to destroy the 2nd amendment with her 2013 assault weapons ban. For this reason we the people of the united States petition for her to be tried in Federal Court for treason to the Constitution.

By the end of May the petition had 41,162 signatures. If you want to sign, see the petition HERE.

We all know how Feinstein hates guns, of course. Remember this…


Anyway, even though the petition has not quite hit the 50 Thou mark, team Obama felt compelled to answer to DiFi’s critics.

Here is what the White House said to petitioners:

Where We Agree and Where We Don’t

We don’t believe that Senator Dianne Feinstein should be punished for championing legislation. In fact, we’re going to continue to work with her and other likeminded Members of Congress to put in place commonsense reforms to reduce gun violence.

But we’re willing to have a reasonable debate about the steps we should take to make the country safer for our kids.

And it actually seems like we’re starting from a place of common agreement: Like many of you, President Obama believes that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms.

That’s never been in question with this discussion. What we’ve proposed are steps within the framework of that constitutional right to protect our communities from shootings and violence. If you want to see the specifics of our plan, you should visit WhiteHouse.gov/NowIsTheTime.

Now generally, it’s up to our courts to resolve matters of constitutionality. But no less an authority than Justice Antonin Scalia has written, “Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose” — so we’re pretty confident that we’re on solid ground when we say we support Senator Feinstein’s legislation to that effect.

We also believe that there’s room for a civil discourse on matters of public policy — where we don’t try to silence our political opponents just because we disagree with them. In America, all of us, even those with whom you disagree, have the right to help to set our nation’s course.

Which is exactly why we created the We the People platform. Even if you disagree with everything you just read, we want you to walk away from this process with knowledge that we’re doing our best to listen — even to our harshest critics.

Apparently the White House feels that insulting our intelligence by claiming that Obama respects the Second Amendment and the U.S. Constitution is the way to go, eh?

But, Obama is just as bad a lair and demagogue about guns as DiFi, so it shouldn’t be surprising that he is running to her support.


It is also a bit disingenuous to claim that DiFi is just doing her duty as a lawmaker, too. She tried this failed gun ban business back in 1995 and dozens of times since. With as many times as she’s tried and failed to get the Second Amendment nullified with un-Constitutional federal laws one would think that her lawless agenda would be pretty clear by now.

    Where can I sign to petition her????????? Please!!

  2. Dan Ear says:

    Is it too late to sign to the petition? I clicked the link on this page, but was only able to view the current signatures.

    • 5 War Veteran says:

      Consider that if the petition now does not reach 50 thousand signatories it is considered meaningless. They raised the number of signatories from 15 thousand to 25 thousand and now 50 thousand.
      Making it necessary to scroll slow through 49 thousand signatures in order to sign is nothing more than obfuscation.
      Unless they have something posted elsewhere indicating another policy not readily available through standard access from the source page.

    If you don’t understand my point and are truly disgusted, you’re not very bright…

    My example of Hitler praising his gun registration as making things SAFER and this being the example the world should follow is profoundly contrasted to the UNARMED Jews being led away on trains to their deaths!

    This current administration, Hitler and you are reassuring us that this is ALL about SAFETY and no harm will come to anyone when we take charge of your weapons.

    “Those who cannot remember the past, are condemned to repeat it,”…

    “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
    – Thomas Jefferson

    “Americans have the right and advantage of being armed, unlike the people of other countries, whose leaders are afraid to trust them with arms.” – James Madison

    “The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the
    United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.”
    – Samuel Adams

    The Second Amendment is TYRANNY INSURANCE for the citizen. To TAKE AWAY this right in whole or in part from the PEACABLE citizen after a crazy person shoots others is a fool’s argument and deceptive.

    The PEACABLE citizen is a threat to no one EXCEPT the TYRANT. Whenever there are actions to outlaw, restrict or infringe the Second Amendment right of the peaceable citizen, it is for the purpose of DISARMING them.

    When the citizenry is armed, no matter how peaceable and law-abiding, their arms are a THREAT and OBSTICLE to the tyrants ambitions.

    When Obama and Diane Feinstein seek to TAKE AWAY your Second Amendment right, they are after your freedom and personal safety. This is AGAINST the Constitution and treasonous.

    • Archie1954 says:

      This argument is absolutely beyond foolish. Consider the word “peaceable”, does that word include mental cases, how about known felons, maybe distraught and jilted lovers or perhaps just lazy and careless gun lovers? Regardless these kind of people have to be investigated before they are handed a firearm because they don’t meet the definition of peaceable. Is that too hard to understand?

      • 1Psuche says:

        The meaning of the word “peaceable” is self-evident. You were able to work through it and for the most part I agree as well as it not being too hard to understand.

        A peaceable citizen is one who lives within the bounds of the law and does no one any harm.
        Obviously a felon, mentally disturbed person, etc. is not a peaceable person.

        My comment was building on that of Samuel Adams and you find this reasoning “absolutely beyond foolish” which I find most revealing of you.

        If one is truly interested in address these mass shootings, one must recognize that for the most part almost EVERY ONE of these shooters was on a Psychotropic drug. Until the argument includes this, the “fix” is more of a ruse to disarm.

        As stated previously, to take away from the armed yet law-abiding and peaceable citizen, when a crazy or evil person kills, is a fools argument and very deceptive. This action does not address the real problem and is nothing more than disarming the wrong people.

        I’ll leave you with another founding father’s quote:

        “The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They
        disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes….
        Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants;
        they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may
        be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”
        – Thomas Jefferson

        • Archie1954 says:

          As far as I know this whole right wing extremist belief that the authorities are attempting to disarm Americans is so much hyperbole! There is nothing to it. This is a ruse or a canard to make people believe their precious weapons are going the way of the Dodo bird. That is not the case and it was never the goal of any government. Common sense laws are all that is being considered. I know common sense is not welcome in extremist organisations such as the NRA but such laws and rules are necessary. All the government is suggesting is that you prove you are peaceable and you will have no problem purchasing and owning a weapon.

          • 1Psuche says:

            Since when do you speak for the government? Even if your job is to muddy the waters with cliché talking points when these subjects arise, your assurances of what the government intends to do are meaningless! And to say disarming “was never the goal of ANY government” is absurd…

            “This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation
            has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient,
            and the world will follow our lead into the future!”
            Adolph Hitler
            Chancellor, Germany, 1933

            …”Ladies, gentlemen and children, please board the train as quickly as possible. We all must be on board before the train can leave to relocate you to your new homes”…

          • Archie1954 says:

            Well Ipsuche, I think your response is disgusting and perverse and makes a mockery of a very evil time in the history nof the world. As far as knowing what the government wants, let’s just say that you know a heck of a lot less than I do if your words are to be believed.

          • 5 War Veteran says:

            Archie, You have in the past stated you are not American and not living in America. After this post I have realized that you are an obvious liar. More likely a government plant and a tool of the Elite.
            You posts here have no value other than that of an internet troll.
            Mainly to create hate and discontent and derail the conversation.
            I get it you are not pro American. You are also not much of anything else but a deception and a waste of time.
            Your very eloquent ability to disregard, degrade and disrespect the persons who post here points clearly that you bring no value to the conversation.

            Your comments supposedly coming from a personage who is not American has no value in conversations regarding American politics nor American sentiment regarding such.

            But more likely you are a person who voted for Obama and love the damage he and his cronies are doing to America. You sir are a hypocrite.

            In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog.

            I see the words but they have no value. troll. Have you ever considered that you are a closed mind? You exemplify the description of a closed mind.
            I will no longer read your valueless posts. I will suggest all others to disregard the tripe you post and if I ever got the opportunity to knock your punk a$$ down I would do so without hesitation because sir the deception that you spread deserves much more than a bruised ego.
            As it is most of the other posters here have told you and explained to you their reasoning and yet you remain closed minded and spew elitest crap. I know who you are working for and tell Obummer and his handlers we ain’t buying that bull crap anymore.

          • Archie1954 says:

            5War you just uttered a threat which if you are so intelligent is actionable. It does serve a purpose though, because it shows the last stand of a person who has no valid argument to make so he resorts to threats. Thank you for making my point. My time on this blog has not been wasted, not at all.

            Archie, One last time. Singularly written words are not utterance, by the values our present government holds dear apparently the written word is meaningless. Much as what you provide. You and I are not holding an intelligent conversation. You pontificate in the name of the US Government, you do not provide anything other than their propaganda.
            For a conversation to take place both sides have to have an equal footing. As you state but I do not believe, you are NOT AMERICAN. therefore there is no equal footing. You have nothing to invest in the conversation other than conjecture opinion and what apparently seems to be nothing other than US Government one sided support for the already overburdened ever increasing growing government.
            When the economy grows so does the government when the economy fails the government grows. Do we as an already overburdened people in a failing economy need more government? Do we need more laws and more taxation?
            Do we need even less freedom? More taxation and continually more Americans on government handout programs because the US Corporate government has shipped the manufacturing sector overseas?
            Unemployment exceeds 56% and the government tells us that the unemployment rate is 6.8% and things are getting better. However everywhere we look (if we choose to look) people are unemployed some living in tent cities and real Americans are protesting. In my neighborhood alone there are 17 foreclosed homes and within a mile radius close to 150.
            Is that evidence of an improving economy or of a lying government?
            My daughter highly educated was unemployed for 2 years. She obtained a well paying job for 6 months in the medical field and then the company she worked for closed. Shut their doors, left the building, vacated the premises. Gone. Get it?
            On television we are inundated with commercials about continuing education and getting degrees but there are NO JOBS.
            I personally know doctors, scientists, lawyers, and other highly educated persons who cannot find jobs because they do not exist and you expect me to buy the drivel you post as truth and fact?
            How effing stupid you must be to post that crap and expect people to suck it up when all around they are opening their eyes. Who has the most jobs today? The federal government. Who is creating more jobs today than any other sector? The Federal government. Who is paying for those needless home made jobs like TSA and DHS? The already overburdened taxpayer and guess what idiot. the tax base is shrinking. What happens when the system collapses?
            Here is an eye opener— pay attention— the federal government starts printing even more fiat (based in nothing) currency. Wake up BOY because the American financial system run by the private banking industry the FED has been loaning fake currency for decades. And charging the US Government interest on monies that do not and never did exist. Backed by NOTHING. So please get your head out of my a$$ and B R E A T H E. You seriously need the oxygen.
            Do not waste your time responding. How about instead close up your desk file those government papers where they belong in the circular file and go out and get a real job. Learn some skills that will put food on your table before it all collapses and there is nothing at the local store to buy.

            Simple promise if you are part of some starving rioting mass of people who did not plan and did not pay attention as the country started being disassembled more than 50 years ago and come to my home to steal, rape and rob. If you are one of the burgeoning masses who has become totally reliant on government employment or handouts, then expect to be shot if caught in my garden. Expect to be shot while breaking down my front door. Expect to be shot stealing from my property, and expect a well armed neighborhood watch to be watching you.
            If you come in kindness and are willing to work, we may accept you and take you in but if you come in expecting things to be given like the US Government does you will be turned away. If you come in violent and angry attitude there is a large possibility that you will not leave. There is a large possibility that by that time there will be insufficient protein available in short order and a possibility that survival will overcome morality and many will be eaten. It is not nice but survival may become the order of the day. I pray daily that it will never come to this. Yet with a government He** bent on creating two castes and people like you who constantly post that everything is all right when it obviously is not, I am not as trusting because I have lived what my government does I have followed those orders and I know first hand what they are capable of.

          • Archie1954 says:

            5War please understand that in a democracy you get the government you deserve. That is what happens when the people vote. You choose your leaders after all. Secondly, your ideas have been instituted in other nations and they create a society that is both dangerous and unsustainable. Look at many of the South American dictatorships for evidence of how such ideology just doesn’t work in real life. I believe taking care of the poor in any society is not only the right thing to do it is also an investment in security for the nation and for the individual. As it is your beliefs have been discredited by other nations through the implimentation and subsequent discarding of such unequal social policies for good reason, they don’t work! Now unless you want to be left behind and end up on the wrong side of history I suggest you open up your mind and join all those others who know in their hearts what to do and support the government or go to the ballot box and remove it.

    The funniest part of that petition page is the White House response to it where they say “We also believe that there’s room for a civil discourse on matters of public policy — where we don’t try to SILENCE OUR POLITICAL OPPONENTS just because we disagree with them. In America, all of us, even those with whom you disagree, have the right to help to set our nation’s course.”

  9. Archie1954 says:

    This petition is actually good news. It means that out of 310 million people you only have 50 thousand who are stupid enough and brainwashed enough to put their respective X ( definitely not educated enough to spell their own names) on the ridiculous petition. That should make the Democrats feel good.

  10. 5 War Veteran says:

    I went to sign the petition and it is set up that you have to scroll through all 40 thousand plus signatures if you want to sign it. That is obfuscation.
    The Administrations response is nothing more than politically correct BS. Of course it is their brand of political correct BS.

    The Majority of Americans are not being served.

    I am tired of the lies and deception being spread by self serving illegal criminal politicians many of which are responsible for crimes against humanity.

    Many are also responsible for war crimes as well.

        I did not vote for the UN I do not give implied consent to any politician and I do not like what they are doing in the name of the people of this country.
        Perhaps this sentiment I have is why the DHS has listed all veterans as terrorists.

        We were good enough to go fight their elite based wars but now we are home and paying attention the slimy dirtballs fear us.

        Obama and his cronies have done much to disrespect American Veterans including taking years to provide medial assistance to veterans in need. THAT is breach of contract.

  11. So what we really have is proof that the un-Constitutional behavior goes straight to the top, and they all should be rounded up – jailed – and tried for treason. Lets get crackin’!

    You now? I bet there are alot of people at the White House that do wish that they NEVER established that website for “Online Petitions.” Life’s So Grand, isn’t it?

    • 5 War Veteran says:

      You may be correct, but there is also the possibility that they set this “petition” site up just to witness American opinion as well as to keep track on individuals. Many of these ‘social’ websites like the one we are on can be used and are being used for such purposes.

      Also consider that if the petition now does not reach 50 thousand signatories it is considered meaningless. They raised the number of signatories in order to obfuscate the issues.
