My Constitutionally-mandated Opposition to President Obama’s Treasonous Afghanistan Policy- aired on CSPAN on 12/2/09
CSPAN's Washington Journal @ ~19 min.
December 2, 2009- The Morning after President Obama's Afghanistan Escalation Speech
Tape of Obama’s speech: “This vast and diverse citizenry will not always agree on every issue, nor should we. But I also know that we as a country cannot sustain our leadership, nor navigate the momentous challenges of our time, if we allow ourselves to be split asunder by the same rancor and cynicism, and partisanship that has in recent times poisoned our national discourse.
It’s easy to forget that when this war began, we were united, bound together by the fresh memory of a horrific attack, and by the determination to defend our homeland and the values we hold dear. I refuse to accept the notion that we cannot summon that unity again…”
CSPAN host Robb Harleston: Some of the split that the President was talking to is referred to in this morning’s Wall Street Journal with this headline: “Critics From Across the Spectrum Rip Plan: Some of Obama’s most loyal backers denounce escalation despite quick draw-down designs, signaling political troubles ahead.”
Next up, Columbus Georgia- James, supports the President.
James: Yes sir.
CSPAN host: Go ahead James.
James: Sir, I’m an NCO in the Army right now.
CSPAN host: Yes?
James: And it bothers me that the American people are not following our President, because we’re trained to follow our leaders, no matter right, wrong or indifferent.
CSPAN host: There’s an article, James, in this morning’s New York Times talking about the strain of military service meets the resolve to go on. And in it, they quote a Colonel Viet Luong, who’s the commander of the 3rd Brigade, one of the Army’s most deployed divisions. He says, “It’s tough to go on another deployment, but for us, it’s another mission and we embrace the opportunity to be able to accomplish our mission and do the jobs that we came in the army to do.” Your thoughts.
James: Yes sir, I totally agree. And that’s the thing. Being an NCO, I’m a leader myself. And I must, no matter what, I gotta make sure my troops are ready.
And it bothers me that the American people don’t follow. And no matter if they dislike or like what he does, because, you know, me, as a leader, I have to take my troops into combat and do what I’m told. And that’s just what I do.
CSPAN host: Have you been deployed to either Iraq or Afghanistan, James?
James: I’ve been there twice sir.
CSPAN host: To Afghanistan?
James: To Iraq sir.
CSPAN host: Ok. Any- Do you know if there are any plans in the pipeline for you to be part of that 30 thousand’s that’s going to Afghanistan.
James: I’m not sure right now sir.
CSPAN host: Ok, thanks for your call. Let’s move on to Los Angeles- Jeremy opposes the President’s proposal.
Jeremy: I prop— I oppose the President’s proposal because I support and defend the Constitution. And I would remind the previous service member who called that the first duty, oath— that was part of the oath that he took- was to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America, and then, secondly, to follow all orders, if they are lawful. And the reason that I think that opposing the President is to defend the Constitution is because I am looking at historical fact and scientific fact very clearly about where terrorism comes from. And it looks clear that Obama is following his predecessor George W. Bush in committing what, under Article III Section 3 of the Constitution, is defined as treason, giving aid and comfort to the enemies who attacked us on 9/11.
And I would just point out the clear and convincing proof of multiple evidence strains of these buildings being brought down in controlled demolitions with living human beings in them—from the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, over a thousand of them, multi—numerous civil and structural engineers, and then, finally, this paper, “Active Thermitic Material Discovered in the Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center…” Anyone can go find it. I, personally, have indicated its presence to the Attorney General, to the Vice President, to Senators and Representatives on both Judiciary and Intelligence Committees, and to my own Congressperson. None of them have disputed the science. None of them will actually respond in any coherent manner. So it is time for the American people and the American soldiers to do their duty and to speak the truth.
