Most people do not know that Abraham Lincoln is a hero for his acts as a freshman member of the House of Representatives in the Congress of 1847-1849. Lincoln demanded that the President of the US provide specific evidence justifying the US invading a foreign country, stating the obvious on the floor of Congress that the President’s claims of a defensive war were lies to propagandize an offensive war for territorial control against a weaker nation.

He did so despite the lack of support from most of his own political party. He demanded the facts despite his being painted by political opponents and the press as “unpatriotic.” The propaganda defeated Lincoln at his next election; his name slurred as “spotty Lincoln.”

We now know that Lincoln was correct that the US President had indeed lied about the cause of war.

Presidents Day weekend includes honoring the birthday of Abraham Lincoln for most Americans. He is considered among the top writers in our world’s history for eloquent and powerful precision. He is revered by Republicans as the father of their political Party. His commitment to the nation “of the people, by the people, for the people” is revered by all.

Unlawful war on Iran is treason; it levies war against the US, our military, and our Constitution

Causing unlawful war upon the US is an attack upon our nation, consistent with US Constitution Article III Section 3:

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.

Causing war against the US is so egregious, it’s the only crime the Founders defined in the Constitution. An unlawful war is the supreme act of betrayal against our military, and a violent overthrow of the US government as we know it by our Constitution. It replaces American limited government under law with unchecked fascism.

The heart of this charge of treason is whether war with Iran would be obviously unlawful or open to a lawful interpretation. Understanding the arguments for war with Iran and the rules of war quickly get to the heart of this crucial issue.

The current two areas of rhetoric for war with Iran are obviously unlawful grounds because they are provable lies:

Martin Luther King's plan for peace compared with Bush, Obama hypocrisy for endless wars

The only trial on the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King found the US government guilty of his murder. Corporate media did not headline this news, and history textbooks excise this essential understanding of Dr. King’s life; providing an excellent case study of what the US Senate Church Committee disclosed as an active US propaganda program to disinform the American public. For comparison, please consider the corporate media coverage to inform in every detail of O.J. Simpson’s trials.

King’s family and attorney, Dr. William Pepper, allege that Dr. King’s speech for peace, calling upon America to end the Vietnam War, Beyond Vietnam: A time to break silence, and his plan for a 500,000 camp-in for Washington, D.C. in the summer of 1968 were a threat to dominant and fascist political factions within US government and caused orders for his assassination.

Barack Obama in the Crosshairs: Is the military threatening to kill Obama over US war policy? 2 of 2

John Hankey is the author of the following compelling analysis that considers if President Obama is under threat to comply with US military orders for supporting war escalation (and its funding). This is part two of two; for part one, click here.

John is the creator of the stunning and historically accurate documentary, "Dark Legacy: George Bush and the assassination of JFK." A 10-minute excerpt from the video is at the end of the article.

This documentary is the historical favorite of my history students and the single-best JFK assassination analysis that I’ve reviewed. “Dark Legacy” walks viewers through the independently verifiable evidence that has two-thirds to three-fourths of Americans conclude the US government story of President Kennedy's assassination is provably false (these polls include ABC, CBS, FOX, PBS).

Blair admits "legal" basis for Iraq war an Orwellian lie; psychopathic monster then threatens Iran

The UK Chilcot inquiry of the Iraq war previously disclosed unanimous legal opinion in the Foreign Office that the war is unlawful. Today former Prime Minister Tony Blair testified that he authorized war when his Attorney General “changed his mind” to embrace an "interpretation" of UN Security Council Resolution 1441 that any objective legal analysis definitively proves as an obvious Orwellian lie.

Please invest a few minutes of your attention to understand the law created after two world wars that makes war lawful or unlawful. Please engage your citizenry against a lie accurately characterized as “emperor has no clothes” self-evident fact, a Hitler-sized “Big Lie,” Machiavellian, literally psychopathic, and exactly what eminent philosopher Harry Frankfurt explained in his bestseller, On Bullshi*.

Official US policy: kill American citizens when President/Fuhrer declares them "terrorist"

I had previously reported that US citizens are being tortured by our own government when the executive branch says the magic word: "terrorist." Under the 2006 Military Commissions Act (MCA), such Americans can be detained forever without legal right of habeas corpus. If those Americans are brought to trial rather than detained and tortured at the whim of the tyrants, the US government has created an unconstitutional system of judgment and execution: the President/dictator slurring the American as “terrorist” also says who the judges are to determine guilt with available penalty of execution. These three military tribunal judges are allowed to accept “secret evidence” from the government that is unavailable for the defendant to view or challenge if two other words are said: “national security.”

All 27 UK Foreign Affairs lawyers: Iraq war unlawful. Obama, politicians, US media: no response

All the lawyers in the UK’s Foreign Affairs Department concluded the US/UK invasion of Iraq was an unlawful War of Aggression. Their expert advice is the most qualified to make that legal determination; all 27 of them were in agreement. This powerful judgment of unlawful war follows the Dutch government’s recent unanimous report and UN Secretary General Kofi Annan’s clear statements.

This stunning information was disclosed at the UK Chilcot inquiry by the testimony of Foreign Affairs leading legal advisor, Sir Michael Wood, who added that the reply from Prime Minister Tony Blair’s office to his legal department’s professional work was chastisement for putting their unanimous legal opinion in writing.

Nobel economist Stiglitz: "US privatized profits, socialized losses is not capitalism." It’s fascism

Joseph Stiglitz understands half the US economic disaster when he explains current policy is “no way to run an economy that’s going to work,” “there’s moral hazard everywhere,” and newly-invented and unregulated financial markets have only increased risk, not decreased it.

The Nobel Laureate, former chief economist for the World Bank, and current Columbia university economics professor understands fully that US economic policy is designed to benefit an elite-class of financial market “traders.” He accurately articulates that gambling losses in fraudulent credit default swaps, collateralized debt obligations, and leveraged investments/bets without the capital to back their losses are socialized by the TRILLIONS in an unprecedented transfer of wealth from taxpayers to a financial oligarchy. And Mr. Stiglitz understands the consequences of a shattered economy on near-record unemployment in the US most accurately measured at 22%.

2008 film "Valkyrie": message to today's US military, government and public to end unlawful US wars

9/11 Blogger readers: I've added to all my articles henceforth a "Comment policy" to address our PSYOPS friends that you may find of interest at the end of the article. A strategy for all of us to consider is inviting their "Scrooge conversion" and become powerful allies from their positions on the inside. Wouldn't the irony be beautiful if the downfall of our fascist self-appointed "masters" would initiate from a controlled demolition as an inside job? In fact, I'll post a separate blog on this topic to welcome your ideas; but it is below and on all subsequent work for your consideration.

Absorb MLK’s wisdom for ending immoral US wars: 2-minute video from "A time to break silence"

The US government assassinated Dr. Martin Luther King; this is the verdict of the only trial of his murder and in agreement with his late widow, Coretta Scott King, family, and Dr. King’s friend and attorney, William F. Pepper.

Their analysis is that a fascist and dominating faction within the power structure dominating both political parties assassinated the Nobel Prize-winning leader for civil and human rights to prevent his planned summer march and camp-in of Washington D.C. in the summer of 1968 to demand ending the Vietnam War and fully funding domestic programs for the economic and educational advancement of Americans.

The speech that MLK’s family believe initiated government plans to silence Dr. King was delivered a year to the day before his assassination, Beyond Vietnam: A time to break silence. The speech was recorded; two-minutes are artistically played for your consideration below. The speech link contains text and the full recorded speech.

MLK assassinated by US government: King family civil trial 1999 decision. Why didn’t you know this?

Martin Luther King’s family and his attorney, William F. Pepper, won a civil trial that found US government agencies guilty in the wrongful death of Martin Luther King. The 1999 trial, King Family versus Jowers and Other Unknown Co-Conspirators, is the only trial ever conducted on the assassination of Dr. King. The King family’s attempts for a criminal trial were denied, as suspect James Ray’s recant of what he claimed was a false confession was denied.

King’s family and Mr. Pepper allege that Dr. King’s speech calling upon America to end the Vietnam War, Beyond Vietnam: A time to break silence, and his plan for a 500,000 camp-in for Washington, D.C. in the summer of 1968 were a threat to dominant and fascist political factions within US government.

Reality check: If China "liberated" US like we "liberated" Iraq, here’s how we would look

How bad is the death and injury toll in Iraq since the US invasion? Let’s extrapolate the data from Iraq onto the US and see the effects. Imagine that China is playing the role of the US and the US is in Iraq’s position. Several areas of data might need updating; I welcome your suggestions for any improvement.

The data: According to the John Hopkins School of Public Health published in the esteemed Lancet Medical Journal using the best academic and professional methodology, as of October, 2006, over 650,000 more Iraqis were killed since the US invasion than would be expected in pre-war conditions.[1] Despite this being the only peer-reviewed study, the US government dismissed this study without giving reason, saying that less than 100,000 Iraqis died.[2] Today, the number of violent Iraqi deaths is probably 1.4 million.[3] From these deaths, the Iraqi government reports that five million children have become orphans; horrific even if overestimated by a factor of two.[4]

National Guard ad revives Nazi oath to Hitler: "Always place mission first," not US Constitution

In 2003, the US Army adapted the “Soldier’s Creed” to program soldiers to shift their Oath of Enlistment from “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” to the heel-clicking, non-thinking, dictator-obeying, “I will always place the mission first.” This fascist propaganda is highlighted in the National Guard’s new 2-minute ad playing in movie theaters, shown below.

Brain-washing soldiers to place the mission first, that is, “just follow orders” given by der Fuehrer (“the leader” in German) rather than being responsible for obeying the Constitution and laws of war dramatizes the US shift into fascism.

Nazi German soldiers had such an oath:

If US government says an American citizen is a "terrorist," the Constitution is gone, torture is on

An American citizen with a bachelor’s degree from 2003 earned from Brooklyn College in Political Science protested as a student against US wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. He appropriately earned his master’s degree in International Relations in a different country, at a London university, and continued lawful political protest against unlawful US and British wars.

In 2006 this American was arrested as a “terrorist.” The evidence: a defendant under a plea-bargain deal to reduce his sentence testified that the American loaned his cell phone as needed when the defendant stayed at his apartment while travelling through London. Among the defendant’s calls is at least one to alleged members of al-Qaida in Pakistan to arrange delivery of a few raincoats, ponchos, and socks in the defendant’s luggage.

That’s the evidence of criminal activity: lending his cell phone.
