A Duty to Disobey All Unlawful Orders » Counterpunch: Tells the Facts, Names the Names

December 1, 2012 23 comments

During the Iran-Contra hearings of 1987, Senator Daniel Inouye of Hawaii, a decorated World War II veteran and hero, told Lt. Col. Oliver North that North was breaking his oath when he blindly followed the commands of Ronald Reagan. As Inouye stated, “The uniform code makes it abundantly clear that it must be the Lawful orders of a superior officer. In fact it says, ‘Members of the military have an obligation to disobey unlawful orders.’ This principle was considered so important that we-we, the government of the United States, proposed that it be internationally applied in the Nuremberg trials.” (Bill Moyers, “The Secret Government”, Seven Locks Press; also in the PBS 1987 documentary, “The Secret Government: The Constitution in Crisis”)

 

Senator Inouye was referring to the Nuremberg trials in the post WW II era, when the U.S. tried Nazi war criminals and did not allow them to use the reason or excuse that they were only “following orders” as a defense for their war crimes which resulted in the deaths of millions of innocent men, women, and children. “In 1953, the Department of Defense adopted the principles of the Nuremberg Code as official policy” of the United States. (Hasting Center Report, March-April 1991)

Will Ron Paul Destroy the ‘Party of Lincoln’? by Thomas DiLorenzo

December 1, 2012 34 comments

Of course, Lincoln’s “save the Union” rhetoric was always outrageous nonsense. The original American union of the founding fathers was a voluntary union based on the Jeffersonian notion in the Declaration of Independence that the just powers of government result only from the consent of the governed, and whenever that consent was withdrawn, it was the duty of the governed to abolish that government.

It was nothing more than a practical political arrangement and not some magical, mystical, sacred union that “justified” the mass murder of more than 350,000 Southerners to “save” it. Indeed, the founding fathers would probably have thought such a thing to be perhaps the biggest atrocity in world history.

The following has been widely circulated for some time now by email, etc.
Said to have been a letter to the editor found in a European newspaper.
Sorta hits the old nail on the head, doesn’t it!

Myself, I would simply refer to these “multitude of fools” as simply… AINO ~ American In Name Only!
*****
A mere symptom of what ails America…

Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out. We have a lot of work to do.

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.”

“At precisely ten o’clock, the South Korean minister of foreign affairs announced that he had received confirmation from the CIA that “the plane had landed at Sakhalin. The crew and passengers are safe.” Pg. 4, Incident at Sakhalin. “Let us examine the CIA announcement about which so much as been written: The aircraft did not explode in flight and did not crash, but is known to have landed on Sakhalin. The passengers and crew are safe and the aircraft is undamaged.” Pg. 5, Incident at Sakhalin

“Seoul, South Korea (UPI) – A Korean Air Lines jumbo jet flying from New York to Seoul Wednesday with 269 people aboard, including a U.S. Congressman, was forced to land on Sakhalin, a Soviet-occupied island north of Japan, the government-run television said “The passengers were reported safe. Among them was Rep. Larry McDonald, D-GA., John Birch society chairman, whose spokesman said in Washington that American officials believed the jet was forced down by Soviet or North Korean fighter planes. A report on the Korean Broadcasting System said Thursday the CIA had informed the Seoul government of the landing on the Soviet-occupied island about 850 miles north of Tokyo…

…..KAL Flight 007 was shot down by the Russians on September 1, 1983. Allegedly all 269 passengers including United States Congressman Larry McDonald perished. After spending a substantial amount of research time, I am convinced that not only did the passengers survive, but since some of them were young children, they are likely still alive. Where are they? Bush’s pal, former KGB spy, Vlad Putin has them. You’ve heard of the KGB haven’t you? Let me do a short recap here:

American diplomats appear dumbfounded. The UK Guardian posts a headline report that reads: “US media angrily marvels at the lack of Muslim gratitude.”

The Guardian article goes on to say: “One prominent strain shaping American reaction to the protests in the Muslim world is bafflement, and even anger, that those Muslims are not more grateful to the US… Attacks in Libya that left four US diplomats dead – including Ambassador Christopher Stevens – and a mob invasion of the US Embassy in Cairo, in which the US flag was torn to shreds, have left many to wonder: How can people the USA helped free from murderous dictators treat it in such a way?”

With protests in over 40 locations worldwide against the U.S. in the past week, America should be re-evaluating its foreign policy.

Created by the elitist National Academy of Sciences – decades of an inter-agency culture of secrecy explains why the issue of covert aerosol Geoengineering is a taboo topic to be degraded to the status of “conspiracy theory” by a matrix of complicit bureaucrats at every opportunity.

 

This is why your local TV “meteorologist” will rarely make a helpful comment about an unusual sky filled with persistent jet trails.
