SIMILAR, BUT NOT ALL
EXACTLY THE SAME!
By Jim “Gymbeaux” Brown, November 28, 2023
The following are the oaths required to be taken by both the military and members of the Executive Branch, the Legislative Branch and the Judicial Branch of the Federal Government:
Military Oath for Enlisted Members
"I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So, help me God."
Military Oath for Officer Members
"I, _____ (SSAN), having been appointed an officer in the _____ (Military Branch) of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of _____ do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God."
Oath of Office given to the Executive Branch of the Federal Government
"I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same: that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So, help me God."
Oath of Office given to the Legislative Branch of the Federal Government
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So, help me God."
Oath of Office given to the Judicial Branch of the Federal Government
"I, [NAME], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as [TITLE] under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So, help me God.'' NOTE: The next time you see a Supreme Court Decision that falls totally upon political party lines, you tell me if they have faithfully and impartially carried out their duties. NOT! Occasionally maybe, consistently, NEVER!
Note: I find it odd that the Supreme Court Justices do not take an oath to: support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic!
I served for 20 years in the U. S. Coast Guard and I initially took the first oath listed above for enlisted members signing on for the first time or each time they reenlist. I then took the second oath when I first made Chief Warrant Officer and again when I was promoted to Limited Duty Officer, Lieutenant. The ONE THING, that to the casual observer may go unnoticed on all of the oaths listed above, is that there are no expiration dates on any of them.
What DON’T these oaths ask of the person taking them? In the case of the military oaths the one very obvious missing fact is that when you sign on to serve in the military, it goes without saying that you are agreeing that you may be asked to sacrifice your life during the performance of performing your duties. Why is that not included in the oath.
I was once interviewed for a unique position within the Coast Guard and the interview panel asked me point blank, “Are you willing to sacrifice your life for your Country?” I was not prepared for that question and my answer to the question obviously didn’t hurt my chances of being selected because I was even though my orders were later cancelled. I told the Board, “I believe that anyone who says without reservation that they are, is not being truthful because until that instant when you have to make a decision to live or die, I don’t think anyone really knows for sure what they will do. I would like to believe that I would, otherwise I would have never joined a military branch.” To this day I still believe that!
What else is missing from all of the various oaths listed above? The requirement to tell the truth at all times! What good is any oath you take if you are NOT required to be honest?
What prompted me to write this Nugget at this point in time, November 28, 2023? I have witnessed members of the current Presidential Cabinet and a spokesperson for the President who have all taken several of the oaths above, look into the television cameras and into the eyes of members of Congress and lie through their teeth at the questions being asked. More specifically, James R. Clapper Jr. was a Lieutenant General in the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve and later he transferred to the Air Force Reserves. He took the Officer’s Oath. Department of Defense Spokesman John Kirby, he’s a Real Admiral in the U. S. Navy. He too took the Officer’s Oath. Both have been caught in lies and half-truths, not something you would or should expect to come from the mouths of enlisted or officer members of the military, let alone such senior officers but that is exactly what they have done. Their penalty for telling lies and half-truths? NOTHING! REPEAT NOTHING!
None of the oaths taken by anyone refer to sacrificing their lives if needed in the performance of their duties. It is a silent agreement among military members that the possibility definitely exists. But what about the politicians? What have they got to lose by using their positions within the Federal Government to further their personal agendas, use their positions to enhance their personal wealth, lie to the people of America and the World and completely ignore the wishes and desires of the people that elected them to office which is their primary mission for taking the position in the first place? NOTHING! THEY LOSE NOTHING! THERE IS NO ACCOUNTABILITY FOR THESE CHARLATANS OF WASHINGTON D.C.! NONE WHATSOEVER!
So how does this happen? We are all born into this world, with very few exceptions, pure of heart and mind. Somewhere along the line people become compromised either by what they have said and/or done or from outside sources such as the case with the names contained in the heretofore unseen “Black Book” of Jeffrey Epstein. In other words, they have been compromised by their illicit actions caught on video tapes and then used against them to force them to act in a way that would otherwise be contrary to the way they were probably raised by their parents. This is how and why the corruption runs so rampant within those individuals who hold office in Washington, D.C. They fear exposure of the truth and therefore they do what they are told to do. How else can you just write off the fact that they continually spend more money than they take in? How can you explain that from the President on down, they have left the Southern Border, open to massive illegal immigrant penetration that runs in the millions and millions of mostly fighting age men from all parts of the world?
Regarding this last issue, I refer you to the following Article 4; Section 4 of the U. S. Constitution; made larger and emboldened for emphasis and clarity:
Article 4 Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution states: The United States (I’ll add the President and Congress) shall guarantee to every State in this Union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence.
How much clearer could their official duties be declared? But have they protected each State against invasion and from the domestic violence that runs rampant in so many of our larger cites? On D-Day, on the Normandy Beaches during WWII, 150,000 men stormed the beaches on that one day. It has been estimated that as many as 15 MILLION PEOPLE have stormed our Southern Border with not only immunity, but our Government has also been providing them with food, shelter, healthcare, education and even spending money and cell phones all at U. S. Taxpayer expense. I am a Disabled Veteran and I receive no such benefits for having served my country and have become significantly injured in the process.
Where is the Justice Department, where is the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), where are the State and Local Police and Sheriffs? Who is enforcing the terms of office all these people took when they said they agreed to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic!” THEY ARE NOWHERE TO BE FOUND! THEY ARE ALL IN VIOLATION OF THEIR OATHS OF OFFICE. If the oaths mean that little, we have become a rudderless nation and are prime to be taken over by any number of powerful nations or organizations like the morons that comprise the unelected World Economic Forum and the United Nations!
THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE CONCLUSION! THE ELECTED POLITICIANS IN WASHINGTON, D.C. HAVE BEEN SO CORRUPTED BY THEIR OWN ACTIONS AND DEEDS THAT THEY ARE INCAPABLE OF DOING THE RIGHT THING! YOU WOULD HAVE TO HAVE YOUR HEAD SO DEEPLY BURIED IN THE SAND AS NOT TO BE ABLE TO SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING! IF THAT IS THE CASE, YOU ARE MORE A PART OF THE PROBLEM THAN YOU COULD EVER IMAGINE! IF THE COUNTRY THAT WE ARE BECOMING IS THE COUNTRY YOU WANT TO LEAVE TO YOUR CHILDREN, YOU ARE ONE SICK BASTARD FOR NOT ONLY DOING NOTHING ABOUT IT, BUT TO ALSO REELECTING THE VERY EVIL PEOPLE IN WASHINGTON, D.C. DOING THIS TO ALL OF US!!!!!
