Accessory after the Fact
Mark A. Goldman                                                                            5/30/09

ACCESSORY AFTER THE FACT - Whoever, knowing that an offense has been committed, receives, relieves, comforts or assists the offender in order to hinder or prevent his apprehension, trial or punishment, is an accessory after the fact; one who knowing a felony to have been committed by another, receives, relieves, comforts, or assists the felon in order to hinder the felon's apprehension, trial, or punishment. U.S.C. 18

If you view the following video you will see that President Obama is now an accessory after the fact, which itself is a felony.

The way I feel about it is, that when you believe that a person has committed a felony and is being protected from prosecution because of his or her station in life, or his or her power to obstruct justice, it would be inappropriate to relate to that person as if he or she deserves the kind of respect that otherwise one would bestow on a person having achieved that station in life.

So for me, to relate to Obama or any other public official who is a party to a felony or is obstructing justice where crimes have been committed, given that these crimes are continuing and in progress, is entirely unacceptable. That is why I have decided to no longer write letters to members of Congress and why I will not write letters to President Obama about issues of public policy. 

First things first. First one must deal with the crimes that have been committed and are being committed, along with the obstruction of justice relating to those crimes. All business should and must stop until this is handled because it is not proper to conduct business with criminals, who, because they are criminals, no longer hold power legitimately.
