And No One Goes to Jail
Commissioner Griffin’s expose’ at last nights CCIA meeting was amazing and falls into the corruption or actually the destruction of our Constitutional government as Victor Davis Hansen points out in “The Dying Citizen”.
Back when general McChrystal made his disparaging remarks against VP Biden and Pres. Obama in his interview for Rolling Stone magazine and was not brought up on charges, I saw that as the door opening for any Soldier, Marine, Sailor or Airman to do the same to their superiors which totally undermines the authority outline in the UCMJ and thus our military strength.
Here is my writing on what VDH has to say about our laws being made irrelevant or just ignored as Commissioner Griffin also pointed out.
APPENDIX 2 UNIFORM CODE OF MILITARY JUSTICE Effective December 20, 2019 CHAPTER 47. UNIFORM CODE OF MILITARY JUSTICE
Subchapter I. General Provisions.
§802. Art. 2. Persons subject to this chapter (a) The following persons are subject to this chapter:
(4) Retired members of a regular component of the armed forces who are entitled to pay.
§888. Art. 88. Contempt toward officials Any commissioned officer who uses contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Homeland Security, or the Governor or legislature of any State, Commonwealth, or possession in which he is on duty or present shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.
§894. Art. 94. Mutiny or sedition (a) Any person subject to this chapter who—
(1) with intent to usurp or override lawful military authority, refuses, in concert with any other person, to obey orders or APPENDIX 2 A2-36 otherwise do his duty or creates any violence or disturbance is guilty of mutiny;
(2) with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of lawful civil authority, creates, in concert with any other person, revolt, violence, or other disturbance against that authority is guilty of sedition;
(3) fails to do his utmost to prevent and suppress a mutiny or sedition being committed in his presence, or fails to take all reasonable means to inform his superior commissioned officer or commanding officer of a mutiny or sedition which he knows or has reason to believe is taking place, is guilty of a failure to suppress or report a mutiny or sedition. (b) A person who is found guilty of attempted mutiny, mutiny, sedition, or failure to suppress or report a mutiny or sedition shall be punished by death or such other punishment as a court-martial may direct.
Our laws of the land of which the UCMJ is a part have been parceled out and portions made situational, based on who is in control which in these cases was not our duly and seated elected officials.
According to VDH this is a list of ones beyond the reach of the law of which I am sure there are many others:
(parenthesis) denote who they attacked
referece pages 194-197 of “The Dying Citizen”
Retired general Michael Flynn (Obama)
Retired general Stanley McChrystal (VP Biden and Obama)
CIA director & 4 star general, Hayden (Obama and Trump)
Retired 4-star general McCaffrey (Trump)
Retired general John Allen (Trump)
Retired admiral McRaven (Trump)
Secretary of defense under Trump & general, Mattis (Trump)
Former members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (Trump):
Admiral Mike Mullen
General Martin Dempsey
General Richard Myers
General Colin Powell
The point being that none of these are elected officials but played an instrumental role in destroying a seated presidents chance of reelections and were not rightly prosecuted under the UCMJ for their contemptuous attacks.
