BETRAYING OUR OWN

January 2, 2014

They are extraordinary Americans. It is said that they sign a blank check to their country and their countrymen pledging that they will give their all, up to and including their lives, to defend the American way of life and their fellow Americans. They are the men and women who are currently serving or have previously served in the armed forces of the United States. They take an oath to “protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, both foreign and domestic” and they always live by that oath.

          This blank check is readily accepted by our government and by other Americans who send these selfless individuals off to fight and die for our nation and its freedoms. Many of them have made the ultimate sacrifice and died in battle while many others have returned home with shattered bodies and emotional scars. Unfortunately, they have often returned home to betrayal by some of their fellow Americans and particularly by their own government.

The Americans who fought in World War II returned home as heroes and rightfully so, yet just a few years later when members of the military fought in Korea and over 50,000 died, the survivors were virtually ignored when they came home to the point that Korea is often referred to as the forgotten war.

As for the Americans who served in Vietnam, they often were insulted, spat on and physical attacked by people in their own country that supposedly believed in peace. To make it worse, many in the mainstream media actively supported the enemy and lied about what was really happening in Vietnam. To this day, children are taught in school that the U.S. military lost the war in Vietnam.

That is a blatant lie; American soldiers never lost a battle during that war. The victory was given to the enemy by a vote of the U.S. Congress that cut off military support to the South Vietnamese army and allowed the communist to launch a new and successful invasion.

Fortunately, the American people as a whole are much more grateful to the men and women who are fighting the war on terrorism, but the same cannot be said about the mainstream news media and the government. The media ignores the sacrifices and victories of our soldiers and often seems to support our enemies with insane reporting in the name of political correctness.

As for our government, we have a President of the United States, an administration, and a Congress that seems intent on breaking the morale of our soldiers and destroying their capability of protecting our nation. Their actions support the fact that there is an all-out assault on both our active duty military and our veterans. The elements of this assault consist of:

  1.  The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a bulletin to all police agencies in 2009 naming all military veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan as potential domestic terrorists.

  2.  Senator Diane Feinstein declares that all veterans have PTSD and are therefore mentally ill and should not be allowed to own firearms.

  3.  The Veterans Administration in 2009 begins declaring veterans with physical disabilities, minor PTSD, past depression, or who even allow their spouses to pay the family bills as mental defectives incompetent to handle their own financial affairs and forbidding them from owning, purchasing, or possessing firearms. This process is accelerating.

  4.  Obama unilaterally cuts billions of dollars from our military budget without approval of Congress.

  5.  Congress passes legislation authorizing sequestration leading to massive cuts in the military readiness of the United States, and putting us in a position of being incapable of defending our national interests around the world.

  6.  Our military capabilities are being cut in half and we have lost respect around the world. The ridiculous politically correct rules of engagement imposed on our fighting men and women in combat have cost countless American lives.

  7.   High ranking officers in the military who disagree with these policies of the Administration are being purged, and enlisted personnel who utilize their right to free speech to express their concerns are being court martialed and dishonorably discharged.

  8.  The Obama administration has also launched an attack on the very foundation of the success of our military, the profound religious beliefs of most of our troops.  Members of the military are being prohibited from practicing their religion even to the point of being denied the right to have bibles in their workplace, mentioning Christmas, or expressing their opposition to radical Islam. Chaplains are having their sermons and even prayers censored to make sure they are politically correct.

  9.  The Veterans Administration that is supposed to represent the interests of our military heroes has slowed down the process of filing claims for benefits to the point where veterans are waiting for months and even years to have their claims processed. In addition, when veterans go to the VA they are being asked if they own firearms, if they have ever been depressed, and if their spouses handle the family finances. Then this information is being used to declare them incompetent and deny them their Constitutional rights under the 5th and 2nd Amendments.

  10.  During both the 2010 and 2012 election cycles the Obama administration through the Attorney General of the United States, Eric Holder, actively encouraged Secretaries of State around the country to violate Federal law by failing to timely mail out absentee ballots to active duty military personnel. As a result, hundreds of thousands of military votes were never counted, denying our heroes a basic American right.

  11.  While civilian employees of the Obama administration get pay raises, members of the military and veterans are seeing their pay and benefits cut with the Secretary of Defense promising more cuts to come.

  12.  Military families are also being affected in other ways. Chuck Hagel wants to close commissaries at U. S. bases forcing military families to purchase their groceries from civilian stores where they will pay up to 30% more. In addition, thousands of military spouses work at these commissaries to supplement the family income. They will be losing their jobs.

    I could go on with this list because it just scratches the surface. Our military members and our veterans are being hammered by the government they have fought for. They are being denied the medical care they were promised, the respect they are due, and ultimately the constitutional rights they have been defending. Enough is enough, if we allow our military and veterans to be treated this way, how can we expect the government not to turn on all of us.

The government has turned on us. The battle is on.

Comment

First, Diane Feinstein must be publicly declared a Traitor to the United States of America for willingly and knowingly violating her Oath of Office as a US Senator, and arrested and charged with Treason, under laws of the United States and The US Patriot Act, immediately, with no quarter, along with ALL other members of the US Congress, the Executive and also the Judicial branches as well as those in the Pentagon and D.O.D., who support and instigate such politically motivated grabs for unabashed power and greed, at the expense of our military, its veterans, and ALL FREE American Citizens.

This active conspiracy to amend and destroy the very foundations of this austere Republic and its democratic processes not only violates the very heart of the US Constitution, but also the Declaration of Independence and our Bill of Rights. How can we, as a free Peoples, simply sit back and do ABSOLUTELY nothing??? Our Founding Fathers fomented an insurrection against the same state of affairs when they stood against King George at the time of the American Revolution, and knowingly placed their own necks into the noose for hanging, IF THEY FAILED! Thank our great God they did not fail, and today we have what is left of a once proud and mighty Nation and military defense.

Will the American People find the courage and strength to stand up once more and fight to retain these GUARANTEED RIGHTS and preserve these Founding Documents and our Republic and democratic freedoms, or have they become so afraid to even open their mouths, BECAUSE THEY HAVE BRAINWASHED TO FEAR THE PATRIOT ACT, and the People are protected by the First Amendment, and tell Washington that the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches, are PUBLIC SERVANTS AND FULLY ACCOUNTABLE TO THE PEOPLE AS A WHOLE? This MUST be done now!

If it becomes absolutely necessary to begin the 2nd American Revolution, then let it begin here in Boston Massachusetts, where this Nation was born from the blood of our very first Veterans.

THIS IS OUR BIRTHRIGHT AND IT SHALL NOT BE TAKEN FROM US, NO MATTER WHAT!

The terms of a government OF the People, BY the People, and FOR the People SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED BY ANY DEMAGOGUE... America will NEVER bow to a fascist police state run by a dictator who will declare himself a god!

REMEMBER THIS:
POWER HAS NO MORAL QUALITIES, WHATSOEVER! The unrestrained lust for absolute power and control is nothing more than an insidious, twisted, and deviant pathology, stolen by the demented and mentally unbalanced power brokers who would destroy the very foundations of America and all her Rights and Freedoms!
