The U.S. Constitution is the bedrock of all American jurisprudence. Without it, no legal protections for human rights and no laws ensuring liberty or freedom exist. All branches of government require office holders to pledge oaths and/or commitments to upholding the U.S. Constitution. Commissioned and non-commissioned officers, as well as enlisted members of the Armed Forces, also take oaths to defend the Constitution.
In fact, defending the Constitution requires members of the Armed Forces to disobey illegal orders. And, in the case of alleged treasonous acts, members of the Armed Forces are constitutionally bound to arrest such offenders.
All of these oaths are sworn– not to a person– but to defend the U.S. Constitution from threats both foreign and domestic.
The crimes important enough to be identified in the Constitution– “Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace,” are important enough to be prosecuted, punished, and prevented.
