Some is a little out of order in the bottom section
In a way, The U.S Military swears an OATH TO ITSELF.
TO DECLARE WAR
TO RAISE AND SUPPORT ARMIES
TO PROVIDE AND MAINTAIN A NAVY
The U.S Military's Position may be that other Constitutional Powers and Rights Not Specifically addressing the U.S Military, are not proper for the Body to commit to.
Interesting, Military Oath is to the CONSTITUTION, Not the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
The CONSTITUTIONAL REASON The US MILITARY
did not Get Involved in Stopping BLM RIOTING
It is not their job.
To provide for calling out THE MILITIA to execute the Laws Of The Union, SUPRESS INSURRECTION, and repel Invasions.
Should U.S MILITARY be engaged in HOSTILE ACTIONS other than through a CONGRESSIONAL DECLARATION OF WAR.
The U.S. CONSTITUTION provides for Construction of DEFENSIVE ASSETS Within our BORDERS.
Exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature
IN THE STATE in which the same shall be, for the Erection of FORTS, Magazinesn Arsenals, Dock-Yards and other Needful Buildings.
Congress and Military go around the U.S.Constitution, Building U.S. Bases in FOREIGN COUNTRIES, Drafting a TREATY and calling it a MUTUAL DEFENSE Pact.
This slyly conforms to the U.S Constitution Preamble clause, PROVIDE FOR THE COMMON DEFENSE .
Taking on the DEFENSE OF ANOTHER COUNTRY, Violates CONSTITUTIONAL INTENT.
'In 1960, the U.S JAPAN AGREEMENT was revised, granting the United States the right to Establish Bases on the Archipelago in exchange for a COMMITMENT TO DEFEND JAPAN, in case of an attack.'
Congress's Restriction on CIC Wartime Powers to Remove Troops from Active Theater, after WAR/FORCE is Authorized by Congress, is UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
Read My Lips.
PRESIDENT-ARMED FORCES are NOT ALLOWED to so much as 'Trip a Foreign Citizen', Until Congress Authorizes FORCE.
The U.S. Military is forbidden from acting contrary to the LAW OF NATIONS.
'The Duty of the Law of Nations Casts Upon every Government to Prevent a Wrong being done within it's own Dominion to another Natoon with which it is at Peace, or to the People thereof.'
1) No Arms Sales to a Country who is at War with another Country that the U.S has Peaceful Relations with.
2l No Consulting with Foreign Countries as to conduct of a 3rd Party War.
Congress shall have power to define and punish Piracies committed on the High Seas,
And Offenses against the Law Of Nations.
The President shall be Commander In Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the Several States
Since U.S. Constitution does not give the President the Power to Declare War.
I believe his CIC powers are dormant, until War is declared.
Defense Budgets are awarded directly to the Department, not the Executive himself.
The CIC has no prescribed role in preparing the Defense Budget Request.
Congress is charged with tasking the Militia, in Section 8.
THE U.S. CONSTITUTION
This Document does not Address or Mention CORPORATIONS.
Until such time, as a Constitutional Amendment is passed upon the Subject,
The SUPREME COURT has NO JURISDICTION on these Matters.
The Military (and Us) Now Know;
President Trump would Constitutionally, have to ask CONGRESS to Formally DECLARE WAR on the DEMOCRATIC PARTY and SEVERAL STATES, before the U.S. MILITARY Could get Involved.
Congress removed Presidents Power to move unilaterally in the Insurrection Act. (Search for Escobar in Stimulus bill text)
Constitutional Obligation Of Trade With Free States Of N. Korea, China, Iran
Freedom of Speech in Countries, Born from the Ashes, is irrelevant, as the people emulate the Leader and a new collective identity as the State as an extension of themselves.
They are all soldiers and respect the power of that concept.
The West and the U.S, is Arrogant, to not respect STATE CULTURAL DIFFERENCES.
Characterising the inhabitants as 'Involuntary Prisoners' who are denied 'Freedom Of Speech' and 'Liberties', has nothing to do with their conception.
Western countries have a duty to Conduct Trade, with these free States Constitutionally, (LAW OF NATIONS)
2021 NDAA UNCONSTITUTIONAL
The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 (H.R. 6395) is a bill which specifies the budget, expenditures and policies of the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) for fiscal year 2021.
Once Congress Authorized the USE OF FORCE in Afghanistan,
The CIC (Commander In Chief, President) had the power to Conduct the War as he/she sees Fit, including Removing Troops.
Constitutional Oath Misapplied
The Oath To The Constitution, uses the term 'Enemies'. These specifically refer to Hostile nations, or Groups, once War is declared by Congress.
The Modern Oath originated after the Civil War broke out in 1861.
Today, we are at Peace, so the Clause about Enemies Foreign and Domestic, does not presently apply. Laymen confuse the meaning with more general definitions of people 'who are Against Us' or 'Oppose our Views'
The Military stretches the meaning, so any other nation is a POTENTIAL Enemy. This justifies Aggressive Actions prematurely, and allows Inappropriate/UNCONSTITUTIONAL Military Spending.
