Obama Guilty of Felony - Violation of the Logan Act


The Logan Act is a United States federal law that forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments. It was passed in 1799 and last amended in 1994. Violation of the Logan Act is a felony, punishable under federal law with imprisonment of up to three years.

according to New York Post article "OBAMA TRIED TO STALL GIS' IRAQ WITHDRAWAL" by Amir Taheri on September 15, 2008 at, Obama is guilty of violating the Logan Act and thereby has committed a felony and should be brought to trial and punished with imprisonment for up to three years. Let's pursue it.

Write to your senators and congressmen and ask for an investigation to be conducted.

I wrote my congressman from Maryland District 5, Steny Hoyer, via his website at
as well as my senators:
Senator Barbara Mikulski at
Senator Benjamin Cardin at

This is what I wrote:

Congressman Hoyer,

Please initiate an investigation of the allegations that, while on a recent visit to Iraq this past July, Senator Obama violated the Logan Act by asking Iraqi leaders to delay any agreement regarding U.S. troop withdrawal until after the formation of the next U.S. President's administration.

If true, then Obama has committed a felony and should be brought to trial and punished with imprisonment for up to three years.

I look forward to hearing back from you with an analysis of the findings from your research and a report on any action taken.

This and follow up communications relating to this matter will form the basis for an article and speech that I will be presenting to the public in our district.

I appreciate your attention to my concerns and inquiries.

I have sent a similar letter to both Senator Cardin and Senator Mikulski.

Thank you very much,
Hyrum Shewell

The quote listed in the header of this blog is an abridgment of a quote of Ezra Taft Benson. Here it is in it's entirety:

In times as serious as these, we must not permit fear of criticism to keep us from doing our duty, even at the risk of our counsel being tabbed as political, as government becomes more and more entwined in our daily lives. In the crisis through which we are now passing, we have been fully warned. There are some of us who do not want to hear the message. It embarrasses us. The things which are threatening our lives, our welfare, our freedoms are the very things some of us have been condoning. Many do not want to be disturbed as they continue to enjoy their comfortable complacency. There can be no neutrality! We are, or we are not, on the side of the Lord! (Ezra Taft Benson, 1973)
