Oath Keepers to Place Billboard Outside Ft. Leavenworth to Protest Small Wars Journal Article Demonizing Tea Party as Future “Enemy” of U.S. Military

Oath Keepers is putting up a billboard right outside the main gate of Ft. Leavenworth Kansas to respond directly to the Small Wars Journal article by Leavenworth instructor Colonel Kevin Benson which paints the Tea Party movement as a future military opponent during domestic CONUS operations by the U.S. military.   You can read more on that article here and here.  Here is the billboard we are putting up:

Since Colonel Benson has chosen to demonize the Tea Party movement, by using the Tea Party as the “bad guys”- along with militias – in his hypothetical scenario of future domestic military operations, and since he is apparently using his position at Ft. Leavenworth to brainwash young officers into thinking that the Tea Party is a potential future enemy they will have to fire upon, we feel it is crucial to counter his propaganda in as direct a manner as possible, sending a clear message not just to him, but to his students there at Ft. Leavenworth and to all others stationed there, and to the broader Army.   Those young officers need to understand that if they fire on fellow Americans, permitting themselves to be used as tools of oppression, and if they participate in martial law on U.S. soil, then they will become the new “red coats”and will be desecrating and destroying all that generations of American fighting men have bled and died to secure – our liberty.

We stand in defense of the rights of all Americans, but since Colonel Benson has chosen to name the Tea Party members in particular as possible future military enemies during domestic operations, we are coming to the defense of the Tea Party in this case.

Oath Keepers is also launching a national campaign to put similar billboards outside of military bases across the United States.  We were planning on starting with Camp Lajeune, North Carolina or Ft. Stewart Georgia, but Colonel Benson’s outrageous and dangerous article in the Small Wars Journal compelled us to make Ft. Leavenworth the first base for our billboard campaign.

The billboard will cost an estimated $1,650.00v for the set-up and two months rent.    Oath Keepers Lifetime Member Richard Allison has already stepped up and donated $500.00 for this billboard.  He met Oath Keepers Founder Stewart Rhodes during his trip to Minnesota, and when Stewart showed Richard the mock up for the billboard, Richard pulled out his wallet and slapped down five one-hundred dollar bills to get this project rolling.  Thanks Richard!  You set an excellent example for others to follow.  So now, we only need $1,150.00 to put this billboard up.  Once we reach that amount, we will continue to raise funds for other billboards outside of military bases across the United States.   All donations for the billboards will be used exclusively for that purpose.

Oath Keepers of Kansas, lead by Richard Fry, who is also Patriot Coalition General counsel, have secured the billboard, which is 3/4 of a block outside the main gate at Ft. Leavenworth.   Oath Keepers of Kansas will also secure a billboard outside of Ft. Riley, Kansas, where the famous 1st Infantry Division (the “Big Red One”) is stationed, and we will place a more general “honor your oath” billboard there.  That Ft. Riley billboard will cost an estimated $1,000.00 for two months.

Below are mock-ups of billboards we will use outside of Marine Corps bases and Army bases.  We will start with combat arms troops, but will also do billboards outside of bases for all branches, including outside of Air Force bases where Predator Drone “pilots” work.   This is just the beginning.  The ultimate goal is billboards outside of every base in America.

      Aye, they are photoshopped. It says in the article that they are, “mock-ups of billboards we will use outside of Marine Corps bases and Army bases. We will start with combat arms troops, but will also do billboards outside of bases for all branches, including outside of Air Force bases where Predator Drone “pilots” work. This is just the beginning. The ultimate goal is billboards outside of every base in America.”

      Yes, they are mockups that’s why we need donations so that we can afford to put the billboards up.

    Are You Scheduled for—Indefinite Detention?

    Several Web postings have alleged that Reuters reported the U.S. Government’s in its recent appeal of a judge’s injunction against provisions of NDAA, the Government stated they are justified and have the authorization to lock belligerents up indefinitely—because cases involving militants directly aligned against the good of the US government— warrants such punishment.

    The Obama administration has not defined in its NDAA appeal what is a (belligerent); what activities are against the good of U.S. Government; or what constitutes a (belligerent being (directly aligned with militants) to order an American’s indefinite detention without charges. Nor has the Obama administration defined what is a militant; that could potentially include any lawful protestor. Under NDAA U.S. Government can broadly charge any American’s lawful writing, statement or communication with any person or group government deems militant is (directly aligned) to order the arrest of anyone. Writers and journalists that exercise 1st Amendment rights, that disagree with or question U.S. Government or its allies—could potentially be subject to indefinite detention on basis there writings were “against the good of America.”

    Current NDAA provisions would allow U.S. Government to arbitrarily round up large numbers of Americans, anyone that U.S. Government considers a belligerent or threat to National Security. The Obama Government wants the power to incarcerate in indefinite detention any American it believes is a “Belligerent” without probable cause, evidence, or charges, with no right to an attorney or habeas corpus. Some observers believe NDAA included the vague term “Belligerent” so U.S. Government would have authority granted by Congress to—Indefinitely Detain large numbers of Americans without evidence of wrongdoing on the broad premise—certain 1st Amendment activities appeared intended toward or were used to support or provoke—hostilities, combatants, terrorism or belligerents; and or threaten National Security: It should be mentioned Hitler included similar broad provisions in his Discriminatory Decrees signed February 28, 1933—that allowed German Police and Reich Authorities to arbitrarily arrest without evidence anyone believed to be inciting public unrest. Germans exhibiting dancing styles that offended the Reich were even arrested.

    Hitler’s 1933 fascist Decrees unlike the passed U.S. NDAA, did not call for indefinite detention of belligerents or persons inciting public unrest. Jail time and fines were mentioned. For your information, enclosed below is a copy of Hitler’s 1933 Decrees that may be compared with the passed NDAA of 2012. Both laws are similar in several respects, especially implied government censorship; allowing warrant-less searches and asset forfeiture from persons not charged with crime.

    NDAA 2012 opened the door for corrupt U.S. police; government agents and provocateurs which there are many, to falsify reports and statements to target any American or group for arrest or disappearance. It appears Sections of NDAA 2012 are so broadly written that U.S. Government or the President may (retroactively) deem any American or group’s prior 1st Amendment behavior as supporting hostilities, terrorism or (Belligerent) to order Indefinite Detention. Historical Note: the Nazi Government used similar laws to NDAA to arrest, disappear and execute without probable cause—their political opposition and to confiscate property of those arrested.

    It should be expected under NDAA that indefinitely detained U.S. Citizens not involved in terrorism or hostile activities, not given Miranda Warnings when interrogated, not allowed legal counsel or habeas corpus may be prosecuted for non-terrorist (ordinary crimes) because of their (alleged admissions) while held in Indefinite Detention.

    DECREE OF THE REICH PRESIDENT FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE PEOPLE AND STATE

    Note: Based on translations by State Department, National Socialism, 1942 PP. 215-17, and Pollak, J.K., and Heneman, H.J., The Hitler Decrees, (1934), pp. 10-11.7

    Section 2
    If in a state the measures necessary for the restoration of public security and order are not taken, the Reich Government may temporarily take over the powers of the highest state authority.

    Section 4
    Whoever provokes, or appeals for or incites to the disobedience of the orders given out by the supreme state authorities or the authorities subject to then for the execution of this decree, or the orders given by the Reich Government according to Section 2, is punishable—insofar as the deed, is not covered by the decree with more severe punishment and with imprisonment of not less that one month, or with a fine from 150 up to 15,000 Reich marks.

    Who ever endangers human life by violating Section 1, is to be punished by sentence to a penitentiary, under mitigating circumstances with imprisonment of not less than six months and, when violation causes the death of a person, with death, under mitigating circumstances with a penitentiary sentence of not less that two years. In addition the sentence my include confiscation of property.

    Whoever provokes an inciter to or act contrary to public welfare is to be punished with a penitentiary sentence, under mitigating circumstances, with imprisonment of not less than three months.

    Section 5
    The crimes which under the Criminal Code are punishable with penitentiary for life are to be punished with death: i.e., in Sections 81 (high treason), 229 (poisoning), 306 (arson), 311 (explosion), 312 (floods), 315, paragraph 2 (damage to railroad properties, 324 (general poisoning).

    Insofar as a more severe punishment has not been previously provided for, the following are punishable with death or with life imprisonment or with imprisonment not to exceed 15 years:

    2. Anyone who under Section 115 (2) of the Criminal Code (serious rioting) or of Section 125 (2) of the Criminal Code (serious disturbance of the peace) commits the act with arms or cooperates consciously and intentionally with an armed person;

    3. Anyone who commits a kidnapping under Section 239 of the Criminal with the intention of making use of the kidnapped person as a hostage in the political struggle.

    Section 6
    This decree enters in force on the day of its promulgation.

    Reich President
    Reich Chancellor
    Reich Minister of the Interior
    Reich Minister of Justice

    I’m just happy my granddaughter left the Army instead of making it a “career”. She served a tour in Iraq and then one in Afghanistan and realized how bad things were getting and how much worse they would probably be. Because of the economy, a lot of young people are opting for the military but I don’t think this is a good option a unless they want to kill your own fellow Americans.

    Newark will train officers on new policy that affirms citizens’ rights to videotape officers on duty

    NEWARK – The American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey (ACLU-NJ), Seton Hall Law School’s Center for Social Justice (CSJ) and the City of Newark have reached a successful settlement in the case of Khaliah Fitchette, a Newark teenager who was illegally detained by police for using her cellphone to record an incident on a public bus in March 2010.

    In addition to the settlement, Police Director Samuel A. DeMaio has issued a training memorandum that affirms the rights of citizens to record police officers performing their duties and makes clear that officers cannot confiscate, delete, or demand to view a citizen’s photos or video without a warrant. The memorandum was issued in November 2011, as Fitchette’s lawsuit was pending.

    The department will train officers on the new policy.
