There seems to be a lot of articles floating around about the changes to the Military Justice System that came into effect on Jan. 1st, 2019. Does this Executive Order allow for US citizens to be tried for Treason? Yes, it does! and Yes, that would include but not limited to those who hold Government positions... Does that mean Hillary could be tried? That is yet to be seen...
Here are just a few links regarding the Executive Order...
(CNN)Donald Trump has come under fire for recommending US citizens accused of terrorism be prosecuted before military tribunals. But despite the criticism, Trump's concerns are not only merited -- they are, in fact, within the bounds of the law.
Justice Act of 2016 (MJA), division E of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017, Public Law 114-328, 130 Stat. 2000, 2967 (2016), except as otherwise provided by the MJA or this order, the MJA shall take effect on January 1, 2019.
FORT MEADE, Md. -- A host of changes to the Uniform Code of Military Justice became effective Jan. 1, modernizing definitions for many offenses, adjusting maximum penalties, standardizing court-martial panels, creating new computer-crime laws, and much more.
The changes strike a balance between protecting the rights of the accused and empowering commanders to effect good order and discipline, said Col. Sara Root, chief of the Army's Military Justice Legislation Training Team.
All terrorists, foreign or domestic should be tried by a war crimes tribunal. Terrorist actions should and could be considered acts of war against the American people.
Jerome, Here is a scenario that would be a nightmare... let's say we have this new EO... and DT gets himself ousted somehow, we end up under progressive/socialist control and now John Doe citizen can end up at GTMO... that sure changes the picture doesn't it? Where are the limitations? kinda scary...
Suzie, if you look at the direction our nation is traveling right now, your scenario is already taking shape. We may have a President with common sense now, but we won't have that in the future. Our generation is ending after the next election. Leftists have been working toward this end for 40+ years. They have managed to Socialize 3 complete generations of young people, and as you well know, those young dumbed down Leftists will inherit this Republic. The Republic is visibly on it's last legs. There is no common sense in these young politicians, they recognize no God or Creator, they abide by their own truth instead of God's truth. Is it scarry? Yes it is! Without God fearing people, this form of government cannot last, and facts are proving this to be true.
Jerome, The young of present day living under the thoughts of a socialist utopia when challenged with Venezuela as a model of what socialism brings you'll find their out as they did not know how to implement and we do.
If our President prevails for another term 4 more years to help stem the tide of socialist America but what 40+ years has wrought would take more than 40 years to undo.
Then along comes the hi-tech automation in full throttle and what now?
The young Socialists today have no idea of what's going on in Venezuela, the MSM does not report the tragedy of Socialist Government. Just as the young of the past 30 years have no knowledge of the the Wiemar Republic (1918-1933), or for that matter the USSR's bout with Socialism, where the citizens of all Russia's cities and towns would stand in line for 10, 12 and 14 hours to by a piece of meat and perhaps a loaf of bread. Understand that if you were the last 50 people in line, you were out of luck that day. These things haven't been taught in schools for as many as 40 years. This "Socialism" thing is new and wonderful to the dumbed down young folks. Todays young folks equate the terminology "Socialism" with what they grew up with and that's "Free Social Media". That have not been taught the pain and suffering true governmental socialism breeds, but they are being inundated with Socialist/Leftist propaganda every day in schools, colleges, the media and Socialist politicians. We live in a sad time.
A silent coup to overthrow a duly elected President which in itself is a criminal subversion felony. Yet America's once so-called unbiased 4th Estate is now honoring the criminal perpetrators as heros, because of hatred for President Trump. Not a single Socialist/Leftist can tell you what Donald Trump has done for the country, but they can all repeat the same demeaning talking points and lies the media has impressed upon their weak little minds. The paradigm has shifted in this Republic, of this there is no doubt.
Then sent them to Hotel GITMO in Cuba?
Common sense that acts against the U.S.A. that harms our national security places all we the peoples in danger -- its an attack on all.
Hillary getting her comeuppance for many of her crimes not going to hold my breath. Hillary and Bill plus many who aided the Clintons most likely will not pay the price. That list of the many for goodness sake were engaged in a plot as well to unseat a duly elected President, that is a coup to overthrow our gov't.
What irks me is that thinking we need it codified in NDAA.
All this shows is how dangerous the world is and as well how dangerous America has become domestically.
And that my friend is the scary part... isn't it?
Surely if we can not be greater than the sum of our numbers then we shall fail?
Mangus, you have a lot of faith in mankind...I am not so trusting...
