Overlay that with this Judge (Carter) who is a Marine. Once a Marine always a Marine. He was in Afghanistan recently. He was wonded at Khe Sanh in Vietnam and received a Purple Heart and Bronze Star. This may have been one of the nastiest battles/sieges in Vietnam. The Marines held this base for months.
Now we have an alleged Islamic sultan usurper telling our AMERICAN Marines they cannot fire back at the Taliban unless they are sure. Our boys are dying. The Pentagon is saying they need more troops in a war in an Islamic country where the alleged CIC may be a Muslim. The pressure is building on Afghanistan.
If this Judge does not understand the Constitution or believe in it with that backdrop then things are going to get....we you figure it out.
There are three branches of govt which are supposed to check each other’s power. The Executive has been corrupted. The Legislative - the same thing and they failed to do their job when Cheney was supposed to ask for objections and Pelosi rush it. The citizenry has gone to the Judicary as the third branch and is getting this “no standing” BS.
The public is also appealing to a supposed 4th branch mentioned by Scalia and Leo in the citizen grand juries which are going on. They have been presented cases and indictments to Judge Royce Lamberth in the DC district and they are being reviewed.
I suggest there may be a fifth branch the public may appeal and that is the military.
He was wounded so badly that they were starting to put him a body bag, when they realized he was still alive. He was in a hospital for a year recuperating from his wounds.
In researching him, I've come across lots of cases of praise, by and for him, in conjunction with Veterans groups and former South Vietnamese military and their children. One story, related by the Son of a South Vietnamese pilot who spent twelve years in "re-education camps" told of Carter giving his father the oath of naturalization. That son is/was a Major in the USMC reserves.
The Speech he gave at the Khe Sanh Memorial on 21 Jan 2008. It was good to see you Eugene, and thank you for your service to our nation. Were you able to obtain the marvelous speech from Judge Carter? My late father was in the Vietnamese Air Force's 2nd Fighter Squadron which was formed in 1961 with the help of Farmgate.
He was very proud of his service and his USAF affiliation. As one of the first 15 US-trained South Vietnamese pilots, he was winged in 1959 at Reese AFB in Lubbock then flew T28s, A1s, C47s, AC47s, C123s, and C130s and was a graduate of the Air Commando School at Hurlburt in 1966. I have a picture of Judge Carter and my father from 1999 at his citizenship ceremony in LA, a proud moment in his life as he was grateful to America for taking care of his family while he sur- vived 12 years in reeducation camps.
