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
"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
"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
"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,
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
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
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
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!!!!!
