Will the U.S. Military be ordered to Fire on American Citizens?
A Nobel Peace Prize nominee (of whom there are more than 250 each year) has recently alleged that a “military legend” told him that a high-ranking military officer (in turn) told him that, as a “litmus test,” officers are asked if they would obey orders to fire on American citizens. (here) Thus, I’m telling you that someone said that an anonymous person told him that another anonymous person had told the previous person that this litmus test is now a determining factor in whether a
military officer may be considered for advancement. U.S.
Can we believe an allegation from this chain of anonymous sources, repeated by someone whose name is unfamiliar to us? No, but we can believe facts that are available to us.
I hold it as an enduring principle of life that the existence and nature of things that are unseen can be inferred from things we can see. If such a treasonous policy as the aforementioned exists, we should be able to see evidence pointing to the existence of this policy. We should be able to see preparations for the contingency that the
military would, in fact, be
ordered to fire on American citizens. U.S.
What may we reasonably expect to see?
We may reasonably expect to see large numbers of soldiers returning from foreign deployments and returning to the
for stateside billets. (here) United States
We may reasonably expect to see military exercises in which servicemen hone their skills at house-to-house raids on American soil. (here)
We may reasonably expect to see military exercises in which servicemen hone their skills in confiscating firearms from large numbers of American citizens in single sweeps. (here) and (here)
We may reasonably expect to see false flag events being staged to provide a pretext for confiscating American firearms. (here), (here), and (here)
We may reasonably expect to see open and obvious efforts to promote the view that supporters of the Bill of Rights—particularly the Second Amendment—should be regarded as home-grown terrorists. (here)
We may reasonably expect to see pilotless aircraft known as drones—the sort of which the Obama administration has used to kill hundreds of civilians in
and elsewhere—practicing in American skies. (here) Pakistan
We may reasonably expect to see a paper trail showing that federal government agencies have recently made very large purchases of ammunition that can be used only within the
. (Hint: the Department of Homeland Security
has purchased more than two billion rounds of hollow point bullets that are
illegal under the Geneva Conventions.) (here) United States
We may also reasonably expect to see indications that foreign troops may be used against Americans, in case American servicemen refuse to violate their oath to preserve the Constitution and protect Americans “from all enemies, foreign and domestic.” (here)
We may also see reports of other officers claiming that they had been required to take a survey asking if they would obey an order to fire on American citizens. (here)
These are only a few of the many things we’ve seen over the past few years. We can add to this list of abuses and usurpations the passage and renewal of the USA PATRIOT Act, the repeal of posse comitatus, the repeal of habeas corpus—the list goes on and on. Use your favorite search engine to look up authoritative sources for Operation Mockingbird, Operation Northwoods, and REX-84. Savvy netizens can add much more to the list.Don’t give up your guns. As Supreme Court Chief Justice Joseph Story wrote in 1833, “The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.” (here)
