Military “Litmus Test”? Will you Shoot Americans?

06 Dec

According to the following video, Dr. Jim  Garrow was recently contacted by a high ranking military official who implored him to reveal the truth about a “litmus test” that is being proposed by the Obama administration to the military, asking the question “will you shoot Americans if they won’t give you their guns?”

I have mixed feelings about this video.  On the one hand, it’s well done; Dr. Garrow seems sincere and reasonable.  On the other hand, the video strikes me as a possible instance of fear-mongering.

I’m not posting this video as an absolute truth.  I’m posting as a possible truth, even a probable truth.  I’m posting mainly to see what the readers of the blog think about this video.

Would the US Military shoot Americans?

It wouldn’t be the first time.

As seen in the next video, they did it in Washington D.C. in A.D. 1932 during the Great Depression. In that instance, the U.S. Army fired on former U.S. Army veterans. Ironically, the soldiers were led by Douglas MacArthur and Dwight D. Eisenhower–two of America’s most celebrated military officers.

The shootings occurred under the President Herbert Hoover administration just three months before the A.D. 1932 election. Hoover was subsequently voted out of office and Franklin Delano Roosevelt elected. History books indicate that Hoover lost the election because he was blamed for the Great Depression. It may be that the real reason Hoover lost to Roosevelt was that Hoover was blamed for shooting the veterans. If the attack on the veterans wasn’t the primary reason Hoover lost to Roosevelt, it was certainly part of the reason.

It would certainly be ironic if FDR’s election and the resulting political revolution (“New Deal”) that haunts us to this day were largely the result of the U.S. Army shooting U.S. Army veterans.  It would also be ironic if Herbert Hoover was run out of office for shooting the veterans, but the two military officers responsible for those shootings were later considered for the presidency (MacArthur) and even elected to presidency (Eisenhower).

It’s not only politics that makes for strange bedfellows–it’s also history.

One of the lessons of the following video is that when a nation becomes impoverished (as in the midst of a depression) its people become both desperate and prone to violence.

We appear to be approaching a “Greater Depression”.

    This is strikingly reminiscent of The 29 Palms Survey of May 10, 1994. The motivation of the author is here While I know that I should not presume or assume I will continue. I am not familiar with Dr. Garrow’s work nor do I have any direct knowledge of what the gov co has done regarding this in the last 20 years but I do not believe in coincidence. Recently there have been numerous high ranking Officers in all branches of our Military asked to resign or have not “renewed” their commission’s. I believe that it is highly likely that this “Litmus Test” may be one of the reasons for this trend.

    The military will fire on civilians. As soon as armed troops/police become scared everyone becomes a paper silhouette. It is their training. It cannot be helped.

    This will be facilitated by career minded officers.

    I see flatbed trucks the last few days transporting tanks (without the desert camo color) , armoured personnel carriers and troop trucks on 9A between Mayport Naval Station and Bount Island here in Jacksonville Florida .This is not normal activity, also witnessed a male person in the urban blue camo outfit in a retail location on a cell phone speaking fluid Russian. As Judge Judy says: keep your listening ears on and your eyes too.

    Lessons from History

    The Crisis of the Twelfth Century:
    Power, Lordship, and the Origins of Government

    Historians used to understand the twelfth century, anachronistically,
    as the moment when modern government
    (bureaucracy, understood in a positive light, and law and order) was born,
    a kind of renaissance or triumph of politics over chaos…

    They indicate that twelfth-century peoples
    suffered from a high degree of violence, turmoil, and uncertainty,
    and that even the imposition of Centralized governments
    later in the century was achieved through
    Injustice and Force of arms.

    This is a book about
    the cost of political chaos and the cost of stability.
