THERE IS NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN

King Solomon, reputed to be among the Wisest of the Wise in Religious circles, wrote the title of this article in the opening verses of Ecclesiastes some 3000 years ago.

Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines according to the Bible. The Concubines were not his wives, but kept women in his Palace for his personal pleasure.

He must have been Wise to maintain Peace in his Palace, and pay the maintenance expenses. What Solomon was able to do so long ago, is the stuff of Dreams and Fantasy for many men in the world Today. Internet porn is the substitute.

Director of Public Prosecutions weighing charges against Del Mastro over campaign expenses

For those who don’t know, Mr. Del Mastro is Prime Minister Harper’s Parliamentary Secretary.

A Rose by any other name is still a Rose. Those who write the Law in Parliament sit in Moses Seat, the Law Giver, to this very Day even though we think we are a secular society. Jesus described the leaders of the People this way then, and it still applies in this particular case, and for the man made System of Government in General in this world.

Then spoke Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not you after their works: for they say, and do not.
For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.
But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,
And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,
And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

But you be not called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and you are all  brothers.
And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
 Neither be you called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.
But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.
Matthew 23

You are IN the world, but not OF the world.
John 15

Some 600 years before Jesus, the Prophet Isaiah had some choice words for the leaders of the people. Reading Israeli news media Today, with so many Public figures under a cloud for fraud or some other financial impropriety, there is nothing new under the sun.

Hear the word of the LORD, you rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, you people of Gomorrah.
To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? says the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.
When you come to appear before me, who has required this at your hand, to tread my courts?
Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination to me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hates: they are a trouble to me; I am weary to bear them.
And when you spread forth your hands, I will hide my eyes from you: yea, when you make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.
Wash yourself, make yourself clean; put away the evil of your doings from before my eyes; cease to do evil;
Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
Come now, and let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
If you be willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land:
 But if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD has spoken it.
How is the faithful city become a harlot! it was full of Judgment; Righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.
Your silver is become dross, your wine mixed with water:
Your princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loves gifts, and follows after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither does the cause of the widow come unto them.
Therefore says the Lord, the LORD of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of my adversaries, and avenge me of my enemies:
And I will turn my hand upon you, and purely purge away your dross, and take away all your tin:

Isaiah 1

WIKILEAKS AND DEMOCRATIC FREEDOM OF THE PRESS

chris-Hedges-reality

TRUTH IS THE FIRST CASUALTY OF WAR

I admire Chris Hedges. I see him as being like an Old Testament Prophet, pointing out the warning signs to a society going down the wrong path, to a people who do not listen or consider.

By his notable accomplishments, he speaks from a platform most of us will never reach in our lifetimes. This prominence among the people gives him some protection from arbitrary government actions to silence him – so far.

thiswaythatway[2]His latest warnings and admonitions about what the POWER is doing in our Democracy, that will last only as long as there is a vigilant, aware citizenry, should be heeded by all concerned about our common Future and well being.

His latest article is named ‘THE DEATH OF TRUTH.’ As I read it, even though it is 5 pages long, I see it as modern day version reflecting  the words of the Old Testament Prophet Isaiah recorded 2600 years ago, and posted at the bottom of this article. Not much has changed in all that time gone by.

In my view, these are key perceptions from Chris Hedge’s report:

“Assange, Manning and WikiLeaks, by making public in 2010 half a Constitutional Law Professormillion internal documents from the Pentagon and the State Department, along with the 2007 video of U.S. helicopter pilots nonchalantly gunning down Iraqi civilians, including children, and two Reuters journalists, effectively exposed the empire’s hypocrisy, indiscriminate violence and its use of torture, lies, bribery and crude tactics of intimidation. WikiLeaks shone a spotlight into the inner workings of empire—the most important role of a press—and for this it has become empire’s prey. Those around the globe with the computer skills to search out the secrets of empire are now those whom empire fears most. If we lose this battle, if these rebels are defeated, it means the dark night of corporate totalitarianism. If we win, if the corporate state is unmasked, it can be destroyed.”

ndda-act1Everything is being recorded these days, and it is this video hidden from the American Public clearly demonstrating the horrors of War the American people pay for without question, that made Wikileaks a “Terrorist” to those Authorities who want to keep their own evil deeds under wraps and out of the Public Eye.

 

As bad as the Boston Marathon murders were in the loss of innocent lives, and the 24/7 patriotic pap fed to Americans by the media, what about this loss of innocent life at the hands of Americans? Does the Biblical injunction ‘what you sow, so shall you reap’ not apply to Americans and other Nations?

Obama-2012“At least a dozen American governmental agencies, including the Pentagon, the FBI, the Army’s Criminal Investigative Department, the Department of Justice, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the Diplomatic Security Service, are assigned to the WikiLeaks case, while the CIA and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence are assigned to track down WikiLeaks’ supposed breaches of security. The global assault—which saw Australia threaten to revoke Assange’s passport—is part of the terrifying metamorphosis of the “war on terror” into a wider war on civil liberties. It has become a hunt not for actual terrorists but a hunt for all those with the ability to expose the mounting crimes of the power elite.”

See how terrified the Public Administrators are the People will wake up to their crimes done out of the Public Eye?

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, acrostic-poem-angel-bible-kjv-eph.6.12 against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Ephesians 6:12

“And there is a well-orchestrated campaign of character assassination against Assange, including mischaracterizations of the sexual misconduct case brought against him by Swedish police. Assange has not formally been charged with a crime. The two women involved have not accused him of rape.

Save-Bradley-ManningBradley Manning’s heroism extends to his steadfast refusal, despite what appears to be tremendous pressure, to implicate Assange in espionage. If Manning alleges that Assange had instructed him on how to ferret out classified documents, the U.S. might try to charge Assange with espionage.

Statement of Bradley Manning to the Courts Martial

Assange sought asylum in the Ecuadorean Embassy after exhausting his fight to avoid extradition from the United Kingdom to Sweden. He and his lawyers say that an extradition to Sweden would mean an extradition to the U.S. If Sweden refused to comply with U.S demands for Assange, kidnapping, or “extraordinary rendition,” would remain an option for Washington.

Kidnapping was given legal cover by a 1989 memorandum issued by the julian-assange-on-time-coverJustice Department stating that “the FBI may use its statutory authority to investigate and arrest individuals for violating United States law, even if the FBI’s actions contravene customary international law” and that an “arrest that is inconsistent with international or foreign law does not violate the Fourth Amendment.” This is a stunning example of the security and surveillance state’s Orwellian doublespeak. The persecution of Assange and WikiLeaks and the practice of extraordinary rendition embody the shredding of the Fourth Amendment, which was designed to protect us from unreasonable searches and seizures and requires any warrant to be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause.”

Iraq wmdDo you remember the US going to the United Nations Security Council with all that false and misleading information asking for “permission” to invade Iraq?  The UN is the repository of Internationl Law, governing the rules of behaviour among Nations. Each Member State is Sovereign in writing and applying their own National Laws.

The UN is only as good as it’s Member States. The US claims to always hold the highest moral and legal ground among all Nations of this earth. What example did the US set for others when it defied the UN in refusing to sanction the invasion of Iraq, but did it anyway? This was contrary to the UN and International Law? Who but God can bring the US to Court?

When the most powerful Nation can violate International Law with impunity, logically thinking people will know, under the thin veneer we call Civilization, lurks the Law of the Jungle. It is assuredly breaking through with that kind of behaviour by the ruling elite! They don’t want to be exposed. Kill the messenger is the US response to Julian Assuage.

In a Democracy, the people generally get the government they deserve. CPAC does not reveal to the People what their government is doing behind the scenes. The POWER does not want their People to know how double dealing they can be in the power centres of this world they want to control. This is an example from Chris’s report on the value of Wikileaks contribution to transparency;

“In 1975 Kissinger during a conversation with the U.S. ambassador to Turkey and two Turkish and Cypriot diplomats assured his hosts that he could work around an official arms embargo then in effect. He is quoted in the documents as saying: “Before the Freedom of Information Act, I used to say at meetings, ‘The illegal we do immediately; the unconstitutional takes a little longer.’ [laughter] But since the Freedom of Information Act, I’m afraid to say things like that.”

The documents, along with detailing collaborations with the military dictatorships in Spain and Greece, show that Washington created a torture exemption to allow the military government in Brazil to receive U.S. aid.”

American proxy DictatorWhen the peaceful ’79 Iranian Revolution replaced the American imposed proxy Dictatorship of the Shah, the lessor thrones the British created in the Middle East thought they might be next. Even though the American/Shah’s regime was a Dictatorship as brutal as any the Americans say they are against, he followed US Dictates so he was a good for the Americans Dictator. His throne did have some historical legitimacy, going all the way back to the Persian Empire as compared to those Royal Oil Sheikdoms the British created after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, to serve as proxies for British interests.

The problem for the Americans was how to nip that Peaceful Iranian Iranian People prosting the American proxy DictatorRevolution in the bud? Peaceful Revolutions would put the International Arms dealers out of business. They could not tolerate Peaceful Revolutions. The Truth is the US is the biggest arms dealer the world has ever produced. There is a great conflict of interest in maintaining that position. Conflicts must be created overtly or covertly.

When he was useful to British/American interests, Saddam was the only one in the position to put the boots on the ground as the West’s proxy army in starting the brutal 8 year war to distract the Iranians from exporting their Peaceful Revolution.  The US and the West financed Iraq in waging that war ending in a stalemate after 1,000,000 deaths on both sides.

While I have no proof, my gut tells me the West promised Saddam the return of Kuwait, the 13th Province the British carved out of Iraq and renamed Kuwait, for putting Iraqi lives in harms way for the American interest. I think Saddam was double-crossed and went into Kuwait anyway like the US invaded Iraq without UN sanction. The rest is history.

Assange said he sees WikiLeaks’ primary role as giving a voice to the victims of U.S. wars and proxy wars by using leaked documents to tell their stories. The release of the Afghan and Iraq War Logs, he said, disclosed the extent of civilian death and suffering, and the plethora of lies told by the Pentagon and the state to conceal the human toll. The logs, Assange said, also unmasked the bankruptcy of the traditional press and its obsequious service as war propagandists.”

Ejected From The House of CommonsPlease go here to read the rest of “The Death of Truth” as Chris Hedges wrote it, and give it your thoughtful consideration.

In the final analysis, as Chris says, if the mainstream media do not stand up for Julian Assuange and Bradley Manning, there will no Democratic Freedom of the Press remaining in the Fascist Dictatorship surreptitiously usurping Democracy as we have known it.

You can lead a horse to water,
but you can’t make it drink!

You can lead a person to knowledge,
but you can’t make them think!

Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:
But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; saving hand of godyour lips have spoken lies, your tongue has muttered perverseness.

None calls for Justice, nor any pleads for Truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.
They hatch cockatrice’ eggs, and weave the spider’s web: he that eats of their eggs dies, and that which is crushed breaks out into a viper.
Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with their works: their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands.
Their feet run to evil, and they make hast to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths.

The way of Peace they know not; and there is no Judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goes in there shall not know Peace.

Therefore is Judgment far from us, neither does Justice overtake us: we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness.
We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noonday as in the night; we are in desolate places as dead men.
We roar all like bears, and mourn sore like doves: we look for Judgment, but there is none; for Salvation, but it is far off from us.

For our transgressions are multiplied before you, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them;
Isaiah 59In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.

And Judgment is turned away backward, and Justice stands afar off: for TRUTH is fallen in the street, and EQUITY cannot enter.
Yea, Truth fails; and he that departs from evil makes himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no Judgment.
Isaiah 59

END OF FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY

“Obama’s stealthy signing of a bill over Christmas that allows the Pentagon to indefinitely lock up American citizens accused of “terrorism” without trial has deeply alarmed many Americans. Even George W. Bush didn’t do this.”

Eric Margolis, Foreign Correspondent

 

ndda-act1

Eric, like the rest of the main stream media, evidently does not think the fact the President of The United States specifically repealed the right to Habeus Corpus on the Eve of the New Year of The Lord 2012 is that important to be concerned about by his casual passing mention of it. Eric, more than most of us, would know what Military regimes with that kind of Legal authority can do to their population.

What is the N.D.A.A.?

The 2012 N.D.A.A. or National Defense Authorization Act, Sections 1021 and 1022, in short: authorizes the indefinite military detention, without charge or trial, of any person, including an American citizen, and applies the “Law of War,” to U.S. soil, making the United States legally a battlefield.

This should be shouted from the rooftops!!!  FOX News, who already sees no good in Obama, curiously, all their talking heads and spin doctors are silent on this serious development under his Watch. They are constantly look for any insignificant reason to criticize Obama and he handed them a whopper of a big reason for legitimate and necessary criticism! This fact by itself should cause people to wonder about Corporate control of the news media.

The Republican Presidential Aspirants remain silent about this attack on Democracy by President Obama as they speak nice sounding generalities the voters accept as substantial statements. Why do they remain silent about this attack on the fundamental bedrock of Democracy? The only reason can be they see this new Law establishing a Military regime under cover of Civilian rule in America as being useful if they take Power. Please! Anyone! Offer an alternative explanation or possibility with a comment.

This legal right and protection from the arbitrary whims of the ruling class in changing economic and political atmospheres has been the cornerstone of Democratic evolution since the Magna Carta of 1215. This is an extremely significant development as it portends to the Future for a global economy on the ropes with austerity and contraction on the way.

All human experience from the Past has established these kinds of economic circumstances move people to demonstrate on the streets. Anyone attempting to organize a peaceful, non violent protest could be “suspected” of being a terrorist or sympathizer and the Military will just come and grab them off the street or out of their home. The leaders of any Occupy Movement would be “suspect. ” The Military does not have to back up their “suspicions” with proof and evidence in a Civilian Court of Law. It would be a bureaucratic decision, not necessarily a Presidential one in the atmospheres of the Day.

Highlighting this contradiction of Democracy in discussions in the Washington Post, CNN and other sites, it appears to be of no concern to the people that Democracy has been repealed in America by the stroke of a pen. The masses are in a very deep sleep as they walk and talk. They have become deaf and dumb like the false gods and idols of gold, silver, brass, wood & iron they serve.

Doing this makes the American cracked Liberty Bell sound even more hallow as war increasingly is the instrument to spread American Democracy in the world to those regimes who don’t provide Democratic rights and protections to their people like the US just repealed.

WARFARE WITHOUT LIMITS: A DARKENING HUMAN HORIZON

PROCLAIM LIBERTY THROUGHOUT ALL THE LAND

It reminds me of the old story of when the Nazis came and took the Jews away, I paid no mind. I was not a Jew. When the Nazis came and took the gays away, I paid no mind. I was not gay. When the Nazis came and took the political opponents to those actions away, I paid no mind. I was comfortable sitting on the fence.

When the Nazis came for me………………………………………………

This is the President who came to power on the promise of closing Gitmo and this Law he signed into effect increases the logical probability there will be even more Gitmo like secret holding facilities in America few will know about except for the disappeared.

While Obama could have vetoed the Bill which he said he would out of one side of his mouth, information is now public the provision that allows the US Military to detain indefinitely anyone they “suspect” of having any connection with terrorism, is a result of his surrogates urging Congress to include the provision in Law out of the other side of his mouth. This is so extremely dangerous to any notion we have of fundamental Democratic rights and protection of the Law. There will be no civilian Judge to hear the detainee’s cries.

Obama promised not to use the extreme anti-Democratic provision of the Law he signed and now in force. What if the Republican-Christian Right get power to frame Laws and choose which ones to apply to conform America to their Christian vision according the Book and the Law? Inquisition II, anyone?

I wonder if the Harper government, who proclaims it stands on Principle so often, will take a Principled stand against the repeal of Democracy in America or remain silent for “economic benefits” to CanaDa and continues to follow the American lead? Not likely since there is increasing evidence he has no respect for Canadian Democratic traditions in CanaDa now. Only Public Pressure can make him do that if it is undertaken before it is too late.

Canadians should be more sensitive and aware of the  scenarios I see possible in this world with The President preparing the way for Military Police, Military Courts not having to meet any burden of proof or presumption of innocence until proven guilty, and Military Prisons in America.

In our not too distant Past, we saw a similar regime in Quebec with the application of The War Measures Act. People who had absolutely nothing to do with the FLQ were rounded up without justifiable reason or evidence of wrongdoing other than being sympathetic to French Quebec aspirations drowning in a sea of English. Like the Natives in the Residential Schools, they could see forces at work potentially causing them to lose their Native Language.

Long before the Global Occupy Movement, while the English media projected Quebec Nationalism to the rest of the Country in terms of Language only, Quebec saw what English CanaDa couldn’t. The majority of workers in Quebec were French speaking, but the visible minority of the Rich living in the mansions on Mount Royal were English.

We don’t even have to go that far back. Look at the power the Police had at the G20. The Police ultimately were accountable to Civilian Authority. With the legal authority President Obama gave the Military New Year Eve, the Military is accountable only to the Military stationed right on our Border.

The implementation of The War Measures Act happened in our Canadian experience in the recent Past. I can only hope there will be aware and alert Canadians standing on Guard for CanaDa for the near Future.

Honorable Members,

The following comment is posted in the Website of Eric Margolis, Foreign Correspondent.

All of you abdicate your Democratic Responsibilities to the People and The Truth if you remain silent on this extremely significant development.

We should realize the differences between CanaDa, the True North, Strong and Free if we reach for it, and our American neighbors with this new development as the War of 1812 is commemorated.

There are risks to preserving Freedom as you love to remind the people!

Citizen photo – ‘2nd Police Warning for God’s Emissary’ September 10,1977

Chris Hedges and others took the Constitutionality of this provision of the NDAA to a Federal Court and was successful in having this section overturned and declared un-Constitutional.

Chris Hedges Hails “Monumental” Ruling Blocking NDAA Indefinite Detention

The White House won’t give up. They are appealing the Court Injunction that stops the US government, at some level of bureaucratic decision, from determining that an American citizen or any individual deemed “troublesome” anywhere can just just be  grabbed off the street and Renditioned to some Gulag somewhere with no legal rights or recourse to a Lawyer or the 1 phone call whatsoever. They would just disappear and no one would know where they are!

That Lawsuit was stopped in the US Courts, and the most draconian measures in the 2012 NDAA are passed into Law, for when the circumstances of the Times arise. Looking at this World Today, it may be sooner than most People dare think!

Mainline US and Canadian media have abdicated their responsibility to the Public and the Truth by not reporting in depth on what is at stake for our common future. The people will be sprung in a trap unawares.

Years ago, Futuristic movies portrayed the possibilities of governmental Big Brother taking over clandestinely as the people remained asleep unawares to the small steps taken in small bites that will eventually remove any vestiges of Democracy as we have known it, especially the rights and protections limiting the excessive, illegal, UN-Democratic activities of our own governments.

This video of a speech by President Kennedy in 1961 was brought to my attention just this morning, and is more appropriate for our Times than when the President gave it.

Starting by sending a message to President Obama September 10 and a follow-up to President Carter a week later, and to the leading Female Contender to be President in 2020, Senator Elizabeth Warren on September 19.

Good Day Senator Warren,

As you prepare to do battle for the Mid-terms and 2020, I would hope you have the Political Courage to raise the issues brought to the attention of Presidents Carter and Obama in the message below.

Dear President Carter,

I was so pleased to hear you on Morning Joe Today. As I live my 75th year, it was an inspiration to me, to hear you speak so coherently on the Subject, and at your advanced age, have the presence of mind to remember the Palestinians in the brief Time the MSM gave you.

I would have liked to know your thoughts on the Trump Peace Plan, cutting off all financial aid to Palestinians, including financial support to the 3 Hospitals in East Jerusalem serving Palestinians? So much for the Trump Administration previously saying a Peace deal cannot be imposed from the outside. That brings Armageddon closer, Revelation 16:13-16 tells us is the Devil’s work, not God’s Will.

I can only hope your reflections, both the good, and mistakes that taught you a lesson, are being filmed for posterity.

In these critical Times, God willing and giving you the strength, I would like to see you having more Public exposure than MSNBC gave you, on what you see unfolding in the US and the World these Days, whether in person, or in many interviews that get air Time.

Peace. God Bless you. Live Long and Prosper!

Ottawa-Hull, CanaDa.

p.s. I sent this message to President Obama last Monday. I hope you can see what I see possible?

President Obama.

As a Canadian, I was very happy when you were elected President. I saw that as a hopeful Sign for America and the World.

You didn’t campaign to inherit the Global Financial Meltdown-Economic Pearl Harbour that happened even before you were elected, in the last months of 8 years of Republicanomics of more to the rich, and fighting Foreign Wars on borrowed money.
The Trump Republican Tax Bill they spin as ‘Reform’ is the continuation of those Bush Policies on steroids.

Watching from CanaDa, the real danger I see, is IF there is another Global Financial Collapse due to more US Economic War on more perceived enemies simultaneously than ever before in US history, complemented by tariffs on more US Allies than ever before, Americans will have to pay for all that.

Removing the few Regulations put in place after the 2008 Global Financial Meltdown-Economic Pearl Harbour to prevent a recurrence, the worst possible aspects I would expect you were briefed on at the Time, increases the likelihood what has already happened, could happen again?

Watching these things, I have to wonder if there is a method to Trump’s madness?

IF there is a sudden, unexpected Global Financial Meltdown-Economic Pearl Harbour like the last one, in the face of the Social Chaos you were warned in 2008 would happen unless you signed onto TARP, it is President Trump who could invoke the use of the worst provisions in the 2012 National Defence Authorization Act (NDAA) you signed into Law.

That would make Trump, with 2 years to go, the 1st to use the Legal Authority in that 2012 NDAA to have his Bureaucracy/Military get rid of his ‘opposition’ indefinitely, detaining them in some Gitmo/Gulag, by accusing them of being vaguely associated with terrorism as determined by the Trump bureaucracy, in a Time of Social disorder.
The right to challenge the government’s ‘suspicion’ in a Court of Law is removed.
That’s a very real possibility with Trump’s temperament he has already displayed.

I always admired the High Ideals in your speeches, hoping and praying Americans would take them to heart. But I also saw you didn’t always practice what you preached. On that score, the whole human Race without exception, is guilty.

I appreciated your Grace in dealing with a Congress whose Republican Leaders Declared, even before you were sworn in, their sole goal was to destroy your Presidency, and I saw they did everything within their power to do that.
I hate seeing the Republican hypocrisy/duplicity now that the Pendulum has swung to the other side.

My deepest personal disappointment in you is, as a Constitutional Scholar, you did not VETO the 2012 NDAA even in the face of the overwhelming VETO-proof majorities in both Houses of Congress.
At least, you would have started the Real Debate on American Democracy.
Russians didn’t pass the 2012 NDAA, American Leaders did, long before Trump appeared on the scene.

Now that you have entered the Current Political debate, you can still redeem yourself, admitting you made a mistake signing the 2012 NDAA.

Peace and God Bless you!

Maybe Obama is mulling over the letter? He hasn’t been reported doing anything in Public that I have seen since my message via the embedded email on his Website
