Part II: The Military
The flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag. —Gen. Smedley Butler, 1933 speech.
In Part I of this series, I mentioned how the conservative Republicans’ view of the world is focused on immutability. To them, nothing evolves, nothing changes. Everything remains the same, forever and ever.
Nothing exemplifies more my point than the view Republicans have of the U.S. military. According to them, the military is the utmost example of honor, integrity, patriotism, honesty, truthfulness and high ethical standards. It is evident that their view of the military stopped around WWII, when, with a few exceptions, those were the terms that better described the U.S. military. To most Americans, the military was bedrock of trust, and they were proud of them.
Most conservative Republicans still seem to believe that supporting the troops, whatever their mission is, is being patriotic and pro-American. That army, however, has almost nothing to do with the present army.
Currently, however, some knowledgeable people strongly disagree. According to them, the U.S. military is better described with the words deception, untruthfulness, untrustworthiness, and dishonesty, where ethical numbness and lack of honor and integrity have turning lying, cheating and stealing easier to choose by officers.
Now, before you jump to conclusions, I would like you to know that those are not my words, and I didn’t take them from a leftist, liberal, unpatriotic publication whose goal is to discredit the U.S. military. No. I took them from a paper entitled: “Lying To Ourselves: Dishonesty in the Army Profession,” by two scholars and retired Army officers. It was published in an official U.S. Army publication of the Strategic Studies Institute, of the U.S. Army War College.
Unfortunately, however, the authors of the study focus their analysis on low-level dishonesty and deception as the results of a failure to comply with burgeoning, irrational requirements. Though near the end of their study the authors mention that “After all, dishonesty in the Army is not new,” they don’t dig deep enough into the problem — which goes far beyond low ethical standards in filing bureaucratic reports, to a point closer to treason.
The wordings of the current oath of enlisted soldiers and the oath of commissioned officers are slightly different. While both swear to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, only enlisted men swear to obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers above them. Commissioned officers, however, just swear to “take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion,” and that they “will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter” — no mention is made to blindly obeying the orders of the President or the officers above them.
The distinction is important, because it gives officers the power to question ethical and moral judgments about the orders they get, either from the President or from officers above them. Unfortunately, this is an option that most officers in the U.S. military have refused to exert.
So, there is something in the oath of officers that doesn’t work. While the U.S. military has excessively focused on defending the U.S. against foreign enemies, the fight against the domestic ones is nonexistent. Why?
Were the Founding Fathers crazy when they mentioned the possibility of domestic enemies attacking the Constitution? Do Americans have no domestic enemies who are conspiring in the shadows to destroy U.S. sovereignty and ban the Constitution? Why has the U.S. military never tried to protect us from those domestic enemies? Have our military officers betrayed oath? Well, some of them have.
Three officers who in WWII chose to protect and defend the interests of our domestic enemies instead or our country were Generals Dwight Eisenhower, George Marshall and Matthew Ridgway. All of them were members of the anti-American Council on Foreign Relations, an organization where oil magnates and Wall Street bankers have been conspiring for many years to destroy the U.S. sovereignty and ban the Constitution.
American soldiers in WWII were betrayed by the deliberate refusal of CFR members Generals Dwight D. Eisenhower and George C. Marshall, in complicity with President Roosevelt, to allow Gen. Patton to take Berlin and win World War II at least one full year before the hostilities ended.
During the Vietnam War, CFR honcho Henry Kissinger repeated again the betrayal of American fighting men. Today, other CFR members are sending American boys to die in foreign lands fighting wars the CFR conspirators don’t want to win.
A powerful reason why most high-ranking officers of the U.S. military have ignored the threat posed by our domestic enemies is because fighting them is a career ending choice; as it was in the case of Gen. McArthur (in some cases, such as Adm. Forrestal, Gen. Patton, Adm. Bourda and many others, it has been career ending with “extreme prejudice”), and the goal of most career officers is nothing but to advance their careers to retire with maximum pay grade — that’s why they never rock the boat.
In the study I mentioned above, the authors mention that “Tolerating a level of dishonesty in areas deemed trivial or unimportant also results in the degradation of the trust that is vital to the military profession.” If this is true, it is no less true that tolerating dishonesty in critical areas and important areas, such as the betrayal of their oath of commission, results in a total degradation of the trust that is vital to the military profession.
In their study, officers Wong and Gerras admit that, “After all, dishonesty in the Army is not new,” and they provide examples of how it was rampant during the war in Vietnam. They even quote a captain stating that, “It’s necessary to lie, cheat, and steal to meet the impossible demands of higher officers or continue to meet the statistical requirements.”
It seems, however, that the authors ignore the fact that dishonesty in the U.S. military has much more deeper roots. In the early 1930s, Marine Brigadier General Smedley Butler gave a series of speeches recognizing that the true goal of the U.S. military was not to support and defend the Constitution but to support and protect the interests of American corporations and Wall Street bankers. The speeches were published in 1935 in book form under the title War Is a Racket.
According to General Butler, there are only two reasons for war:
One is the defense of our homes. The other is the defense of our Bill of Rights and particularly the right to worship God as we see fit. Every other reason advanced for the murder of young men is a racket, pure and simple.
Currently, the US Military has become the military branch of the New Gay World Order globalists. Its main function is not to protect America, but to protect the pillaging interests of international bankers who own the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, the interests of oil magnates and owners of multinational corporations. Those are the ones who should thank the US military, not the American people.
There was a time when, to some extent, there was some logic for the U.S. military to protect the interest of American corporations. Today, when most of these corporations don’t see themselves as American anymore, but as transnationals who have outsourced American jobs to Third World countries for the sole purpose of increasing their profits, there is no logical reason for American taxpayers to pay the U.S. military to protect them.
It is difficult to explain without using the word treason why 132 high-ranking officers of the U.S. military are members of the Council on Foreign Relations, an organization whose leaders have overtly expressed innumerable times their belief that the U.S. Constitution is outdated and that sovereign nation-states are obsolete and should be replaced by a world government under the control of an elite of international bankers, oil magnates and CEOs of transnational corporations — the New Gay World Order.
Moreover, key CFR members have openly expressed their hatred for the U.S. military. According to CFR member Henry Kissinger, military men are “dumb, stupid animals to be used” as pawns for foreign policy.
Kissinger is not an isolated case. In a July 1995 article for Foreign Affairs, the CFR’s organ, CFR member Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. wrote “We are not going to achieve a New World Order without paying for it in blood as well as in words and money,” adding, “In Defense of the World Order ... U.S. soldiers would have to kill and die.”
Many homes of conservative Republicans have American flags hanging from the garage tops. If you venture to ask what is the reason for this, the answer may be something close to this: “To show our support for our troops in the Middle East and the war on terror.”
There is, however, something difficult to understand about this unconditional support for the U.S. military.
On September 11, 2001, our well-funded military failed miserably to protect us from our enemies, foreign and/or domestic. A few years later, they failed to protect our country from a veritable invasion of illegal aliens who, unopposed, crossed our southern border. Even more important, they have failed to protect us from the anti-American conspirators at the CFR who want to eliminate our borders and cancel the very same Constitution our military men have sworn to preserve and defend.
Frankly, I don’t think that there is much to be thankful about the present role of the U.S. military. Actually, far from protecting our borders, our freedoms and our Constitution, their actions abroad are helping the anti-American globalist conspirators to impose their communo-fascist, totalitarian New Gay World Order.
Nevertheless, despite the pervasive corruption and treachery at the highest levels of our armed forces, still most in the military are men and women of honor who love this country. Still, most military officers have lacked the courage to fight our domestic enemies. It seems that our military leaders have been more interested in protecting and defending their careers than the Constitution.
If we want our military to be truthful and honest, we need to be truthful and honest ourselves. If we really love our military we need to be brutally honest and tell them that fighting wars abroad and risking life and limb to impose the New Gay World Order upon other peoples does not help in protecting our homes, much less the Constitution.
Some military officers have complained about low morale in the U.S. military. Low morale, which negatively affects enrollment and retention, is the result not only of using the military as a testing ground for social engineering to impose on them behaviors and ethics most of them consider against their values. Another reason is because military men and women feel that they are at war but the country is not. The main reason why the country is not at war is because most Americans have reached the conclusion that the present War on Terror is not a war to protect America, but just a pretext used by multinational bankers and corporations to impose their New Gay World Order upon the peoples of the world.
Thanks to the internet and other non-controlled sources, many soldiers have become aware that the same fascist and communist ideologies their grandfathers fought in Italy, Germany and Japan and their fathers in Vietnam, are now being implemented in America under the disguise of the communo-fascist New Gay World Order. That’s the reason why the globalist conspirators fear the military, particularly vets.
Testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on February 7, 1950, CFR member Paul Warburg, son of CFR founder James Warburg, prophesied: “We shall have world government whether or not you like it or not. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent.”
Very soon there will be a point when or military will have to make an important decision. When the chips are down and the CFR conspirators decide to take the final step to impose their New Gay World Order upon us by conquest, and everything indicates that it will be very soon, the members of our military will have to make a choice: either with the American people or with America’s enemies.
Edmund Burke said that all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. I hope that the good men in our military will stand up and do not allow evil to triumph. I hope that they will not betray their oath by standing by and doing nothing. I sincerely hope their choice will be the right one.

2. See Robert Welch, The Politician (Privately printed edition, 1963), pp. 7-11. Welch’s is the best, and only, study of how the CFR conspirators recruited an unknown and ambitious young Army officer named Dwight Eisenhower and pushed his military career from an unknown lieutenant colonel in 1940 to a full general in early 1943, until making him in less than four years the Supreme Commander of the U.S. armed forces and later the president of the United States.
3. For a detailed account of Gen. Marshall’s treachery, see, Joseph McCarthy, America’s Retreat From Victory: The Story of George Catlett Marshall (Boston: Western Islands, 1965).
4. Eisenhower’s orders prevented Gen. Patton from closing the so-called Falaise Gap in the autumn of 1944, allowing hundreds of thousands of German troops to escape and return to fight again. This led to the deaths of thousands of Americans during their winter counter-offensive that became known as the Battle of the Bulge. Of the close to a million casualties the Allied forces suffered in Europe, almost three-quarters happened after Patton’s Third Army was stopped in its tracks.
5. Perhaps based on George Orwell’s known dictum that who controls the past controls the future, the CFR conspirators devote an inordinate amount of time and effort rewriting history. An example is a recent article by David Halberstam, “Command Performance,” Smithsonian, November 2007, whose sole aim is to denigrate General MacArthur and glorify CFR’s secret agent Matthew Ridgway.
6. Butler joined the Marine Corps when the Spanish American War broke out. During his 34 years of Marine Corps service, Butler was awarded two Congressional Medals of Honor, the first one for the capture of Veracruz, Mexico in 1914, and the second one for the capture of Ft. Riviere, Haiti in 1917. In addition, he was awarded numerous medals for heroism including the Marine Corps Brevet Medal (the highest Marine medal at its time for officers) He was one of only 19 people to be twice awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.

10. I seems that more and more military men and women do not like the new trends in the U.S. military.

11. Following orders from his CFR masters, Obama has carried out the biggest military purge in U.S. history. Close to 300 top U.S. flag officers and military leaders who opposed the gayfication of the U.S. military, the anti-Christian military policies, and the CFR conspirators’ plan to use the U.S. military against the Americans people in a coming period of martial law, and their war plans against Russia for opposing the New Gay World Order.
12. Thanks mostly to the alternative media, most active and retired military men and women have become fully aware that the U.S. wars against Iraq and Afghanistan, the destabilization and overthrow of Saddam Hussein, the sponsoring of the Arab Spring, the overthrow of the pro-U.S. Mubarack in Egypt, the overthrowing of Khadafy in Libya, the efforts to overthrow Assad in Syria, and the overthrow of the democratically elected government in the Ukraine, have nothing to do with righting terrorism but with the implementation by the force of arms of the CFR conspirators’ New Gay World Order.
