Truth Justice And The American War

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


I know that many of you probably don’t know how rigid of a schedule a person has to have when they are constantly trying to find things to talk about on a radio show. Between the meetings and the preparation, I have been exhorted through several e-mails and Twitter messages to comment on the debates.

Every time I see these requests, I write back some snarky remark like, why would I want to comment on something I never watch, and even if I did comment, would it be biting the hand that feeds me if I say that I am annoyed beyond reproach that the town hall meetings and the debates preempt my show ?

Well, I think I have gone on the record enough in saying that I didn’t know why we have so many. I mean, I have watched bits and pieces of these debates and I think to myself these debates have either been dumbing down or maybe the candidates should smarten up.

The candidates obviously have no intention of fostering any meaningful or “substantive” discussion at the debates. Each one of them thinks they are auditioning for another boring spot on the Tonight Show.

Back in the day if Johnny Carson needed a guest in a hurry, he would invite someone innocuous like Charles Nelson Reilly to be on the show. Now, the default is for Jimmy Fallon to invite Hillary or Bernie on to make Trump jokes or Jeb to do the slow jam news.

This is why there is a growing contingency of Americans who believe the grandstanding is all a manufactured side show and that as we get closer to Election Day, there will be a major event in the country where martial law would have to be declared and Barack Obama would suspend the election.

This paranoia about the future election is pervasive in the conspiracy theorist circles and while it would be logical to dismiss it as paranoid political bias, there are a few signs that when found may indicate the conspiracy theorists have every reason to worry that Obama will be commander in chief for a little bit longer because of a declaration of martial law.

I think it is important to understand that the seeds of a possible suspended election and martial law were not necessarily planted by conspiracy theorists. We can at least document that presidential candidate Ben Carson, whose rumors of his campaign suspension by Ted Cruz, is responsible for some of the election suspension rumors.

Before Carson became the presidential candidate, he mentioned on Alan Colmes radio show there may not even be elections in 2016; when pressed to explain further, Carson said:

“If in fact we continue to have all these decrees being made the way they’re being made, if in fact we don’t fight the kind of war that needs to be fought in order to really put an end to the threat that is brought on by ISIS, if we continue along a pathway of financial irresponsibility, if we continue along a path of envy, greed, and hatred — what happened with Occupy Wall Street will be a cakewalk compared to what will begin to happen in this country.”

Fears of martial law in the United States saw a swift resurgence last year, when information was leaked to the media regarding the military drill code named ‘Jade Helm 15’, which included an estimated 10,000 soldiers, including special operations units, infiltrating and operating around cities in the American south.

When martial law was not declared, there were a number of people who were ready to pounce on conspiracy theorists for saying that it would happen.

Martial law is “a system of complete control by a country’s military over all activities, including civilian, in a theoretical or actual war zone, or during a period of emergency caused by a disaster such as an earthquake or flood, with the military commander having dictatorial powers … In many foreign countries martial law has become a method to establish and maintain dictatorships either by military leaders or politicians backed by the military.”

In America, martial law must be called for by the President, who would then suspend most, if not all, of our constitutional rights, and only the President would be able to reinstitute our constitutional structure and declare an end to martial law.

The Obama administration has very quietly and subtly done many inexplicable things that could very well be precursors to the suspension of some, if not all, of Americans’ constitutionally protected civil rights.

Results of relentless inoculation intelligence operations and agitprop have now created an overall attitude in the country where we consider human civil rights as a sympathy-based concept.

Americans of conscience should be justifiably outraged over the behavior of their government. We are now beginning to feel the encroachment of pathological leadership, which exists across the United States.

However, we are at a loss for what can be called, healthy social cohesion. We are now defining ourselves by what we are against, rather than what we stand for. We value the ability to shame people rather than to help people understand differing points of view.

The battles we seek are not really battles at all but contrarian countering of people we think have unpopular viewpoints. We see it as an act of defiance to those who we think are irrelevant in the social strata.

We are now a society predisposed to warfare and we no longer show sympathy to the innocents that have died due to police brutality, shootings and government overreach.

No one in the mainstream media will expose this or even pinpoint its cause. Nor will the media attempt to cure the underlying sickness. It will all be perpetuated for the furthering of the police state and the encouragement of the predatory state that America has become.

It all is contributing to the blueprint for a full-bore military infiltration that has prompted the foregone conclusion that our leaders want to make the United States the next battlefield.

In programs first outlined in the 1980’s, the United States Military Training and Doctrine Command has warned that urban areas become safe havens and support bases for terrorists, insurgents or criminal organizations.

According to Training and Doctrine command pamphlet 525-3-1, The Army Operating Concept, describes how future Army forces conduct operations abroad and on the home front as part of the joint force to deter conflict, prevail in war, and succeed in a wide range of contingencies in the future operational environment. It describes the employment of Army forces in the 2016-2028 timeframe with emphasis on the operational and tactical levels of war.

The Army also believes in something called “full spectrum” operations, which require the military to prepare for internal campaigns against radicalized American citizens: The US Army Training and Doctrine Command continues by stating, there will be if necessary, “full spectrum operations” in the coming two decades: “In case of large scale civil unrest the military will provide offensive, defensive, civil support operations on U.S. soil.”

If you do not believe that ‘Battlefield America’ is coming, then perhaps you should examine the reports of the human material being sifted out in battlefield-type shootouts in neighborhoods across the country.

New, harsh methods of enforcement are brought on by militarized police who take on a “take no prisoners” attitude in the communities they serve. When we hear the tragic stories in which “overreach” replaces the rule of law, we have to ask ourselves if living in America is as safe and free as we once believed.

Eventually, we will be seeing increased militarism and authoritarianism at home.

A redesigned Authorization for Use of Military Force bill has been sped through the senate that good very well is the writ of martial law that many people have feared.

The Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), written by Sen. Lindsey Graham, essentially declares martial law on the entire world, including within the United States – all in a supposed effort to combat ISIS.

Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, has fast tracked the bill through the Senate.

This reworded bill would give President Obama the authority to deploy ground troops anywhere on the planet, for any length of time, including U.S. cities. Senator McConnell invoked Senate Rule 14, which allows the bill to bypass referral to a Senate committee, and be placed directly on the Senate Calendar of Business.

According to the Supreme Court, there is no precise definition for martial law, but it is generally accepted among experts that martial law is in effect when the military or police restrict freedom of movement.

The White House put forth a draft AUMF last year that fizzled and died in the Republican-held Congress. Graham’s proposal differs in that it contains no limitations on the potential to send “boots on the ground” and gives Obama and future presidents an open-ended time frame to conduct the fight.

This is most certainly a bill that would create an enduring war footing for the entire world and bring the battle to the homeland if need be.

As for the lack of a time limit, there’s no reason the authorization couldn’t be renewed if there wasn’t one. That would force Congress to hold debates every few years over where and how the president is carrying out the fight against ISIS and, if necessary, to expand or limit his or her authority going forward.

Without any time constraints, there’s not much point in having an authorization at all, given the White House is already conducting combat operations in Iraq and Syria without one.

It appears to be a vague attempt at enacting war powers to the president.

Think of how incredibly dangerous this sounds. If Lindsey Graham is a co-sponsor you know for sure it’s an unmitigated disaster for liberty.

Obama will be able to order troops into any country to fight ISIS and other threats; even the United States. This is where the conspiracy theorists will get their martial law and suspended elections.

We know that details are only speculative at this point, the new bill if passed will most certainly give Obama the power to easily levy a form of martial law in the country, but the question is, will he?

The Obama administration has very quietly and subtly done many inexplicable things that could very well be precursors to the suspension of some, if not all, of Americans’ constitutionally protected civil rights.

Some say that civil upheavals in Ferguson and Baltimore have prompted Obama into seeking a “civilian national security force.”

On July 2, 2008 at a campaign stop, Obama made the following unscripted statement: “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

The events in Burns, Oregon, where the Citizens for Constitutional Freedom, conducted a standoff was also an indicator of the changing attitudes about government and their overreach. While the members of the group became a target of derision by the media and the internet, the death of one of the occupiers, LaVoy Finicum, shot and killed by Federal police has now hardened the resolve of patriots all over the country which could trigger yet another civil upheaval.

The cry is going out that Finicum was executed in cold blood and that the Feds are lying about him having a gun and was intending on using it.

On a battlefield, executions are at the discretion of the person pulling the trigger. There is no time for negotiation or even restraint. It is important to remember that America was once a safe place, but due to the programming we receive from the government, our police and even private citizens are now targets to kill or be killed in the middle of a war zone.

The fear of terror is making us stupid. Acceptance of the idea that we all live in a war zone is the result of programming. Those who we see as enemies are also a product of programming.

Today, you are eight times more likely to be killed by a police officer than by a criminal or terrorist. So by over-reacting, we are causing real, substantial and lasting damage to our country.

This government and its penchant for martial law will definitely succeeded by public consent. So will the police state. The way to kill fear is to refuse to be afraid. The way to eliminate terror is to refuse to be terrorized. To stop the war zone at home, we must refuse to believe that everything is remedied by brute force.

The biggest casualty of war is truth.

There is no truth, nor justice in the new and enduring American war.
