Tulsi Gabbard

Democrat from Hawaii, member of the Armed Services Committee, Iraq War Veteran and Major in the Hawaii National Guard is telling truth to power. In no uncertain terms it points out a fatal flaw in Hilary's Syrian plan and US involvement as a repeat of the disaster in Libya 101 and to repeat the massacring of Christians and other minority groups.

She points out that involvement in Syria is illegal and supplies weapons to the terrorist enemies of the US and the rest of the world. This US Army Major is on top of her game and shows bravery and determination that every US Congressional representative should acknowledge and bears the question of their honesty, loyalty and sworn oath to protect the citizens of the US.

With President Putin leading the war on terror that the US not only refuses to do but shows all the traits of treason and tyranny in their actions and lack of actions around not only the Middle East but the world as well. What are they hiding under the veil of secrecy from the American people? How will the American people ever be able to trust government being loyal to its people when it demonstrates just the opposite? What is the government hiding from the public in co-operation of Main Street media spin?

Every politician running for office must be vetted on these issues and sworn to the American people not a hidden power of secrecy or loyalty to any other nation or third party before the rights to know what is being done in our name.

This brings in the words of JFK "The very word "secrecy" is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it.

Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment.

That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know".

We see that the right to know and criticize what is being done in our name and to us and our nation not only in government but in the corporate and banking usurping of our nations laws and sovereignty as a people to correct and abolish any power foreign or domestic power outside of the people's right to know and choose our destiny.
