It was recently revealed that the National Security Agency, or NSA, has been spying on all Americans by tracking their travel plans and movements and allowing internal personnel to violate the privacy of their boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands and wives – to see if they are cheating – through metadata intrusions into their email and Internet communications.
Undoubtedly, this is just the tip of the iceberg. No surprise here! This outrage is just the latest example of the loss of our freedoms and a further power-grabbing attempt by our so-called government to coerce the American people into submission. No matter what one’s political persuasion, this most recent abuse serves as a stark reminder that all Americans have an interest in having their grievances forcefully redressed, and fast.
In this context, the government shutdown continues, with Democrats and Republicans playing games with the futures of all of us. Not that government services in many instances are all that necessary or important, but this further breakdown of the political establishment, along with the impotency of the legal system to redress citizens’ complaints, further underscores why the American people need to get off their couches and take strong, decisive action to restore the republic to the vision of the Founding Fathers.
It’s bad enough that ordinary citizens’ interests and complaints are thrown in the trash by the political establishment in our nation’s capital, but when our fighting men and women in the military are also treated like dirt, then you know that the nation is headed down quickly.
Last week’s government leaks about a raid by Navy SEALs in Somalia, coming after the Benghazi and Extortion 17 scandals, show the lack of concern for the safety and well-being of our fighters paid by the establishment to our country’s heroes. In an Oct. 8, 2013, front-page article titled, “‘Imperfect Intelligence’ Said to Hinder U.S. Raid on Militant in Somalia,” New York Times reporters Nicholas Kulish and Eric Schmitt disclosed:
Since American Special Forces were forced to retreat during a raid on a coastal Somali town on Saturday, the Shabab militant group has tried to use as a morale jolt and propaganda tool, posting pictures of abandoned American equipment and boasting that its fighters beat back the same Navy SEALs featured in movies and video games – the same unit that got Osama bin Laden.
The American raid in enemy territory was never going to be easy, particularly not against the well-armed, experienced fighters of the Shabab. But American officials say the operation quickly became even more difficult when Navy SEALs discovered many more civilians than they had expected, making for the kind of ‘imperfect intelligence’ that ended up scuttling the mission.
The intelligence flaws were partly to blame, American officials said. As a group of about 20 commandos entered the Shabab compound, they encountered far more civilians than they had anticipated, including women and children, American officials briefed on the operation said.
When the gun battle with Shabab fighters erupted, not only was the element of surprise lost, but the mission commander also feared that a prolonged firefight could kill large numbers of civilians.
Not learning from prior leaks that had put a target on the backs of Navy SEALs and other special ops forces after it was revealed by the Obama administration for political purposes that they had killed Obama bin Laden, which resulted in 22 SEALs and SEAL support personnel having been murdered by the Taliban in retaliation when a CH-47D helicopter was shot down over Afghanistan on Aug. 6, 2011, this latest leak further puts these special ops heroes’ lives in jeopardy. Contributing to the shoot-down was the Obama military’s rules of engagement, which seek to win the so-called “hearts and minds of the enemy,” putting more emphasis on protecting radical Muslims and their civilian communities than our own servicemen. As reported, the Navy SEALs were prohibited from successfully completing their mission because of a paranoiac fear that a few Muslim civilians might be killed. Instead, the lives of our heroes were put at risk and they were forced to retreat under duress – a maneuver that could have resulted in their deaths.
Simply put, the “Muslim in chief” coddles the Muslim enemy over our own U.S. military men and women. Yet, almost as bad is that establishment national security Republican “experts” like Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham stand by and allow these treasonous acts to continue without saying a word.
And, all of this and more highlights why We the People must occupy Washington on Nov. 19 and come in the millions to demand the resignations of our nation’s so-called leaders. Not just Obama must go, but key leaders in the Republican Party. If we do not succeed with our nonviolent revolution, surely another recourse will break out.
When the people are ignored and coerced into submission, and our military heroes are held out to dry and sacrificed to a Muslim enemy by a “Muslim president” and his Republican enablers, it is only a matter of time before the people and the military rise up to remove the shackles that have been placed on them by the government. That time is now. We the people have had enough!
Please join us in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 19. Stay tuned for more details about this nonviolent revolution designed to peacefully remove this political establishment cancer, before it kills our beloved country.
