This is just a stunning level of fear and idiocy on so many levels…
“I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new “litmus test” in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks. “The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not.” Those who will not are being removed.”
The claim originates with a man, “dr” James Garrow, who is being lauded as a “renowned” author and humanitarian, and a “nobel peace prize nominee.
Huh? So I had to some digging. It seems James Garrow has indeed published a book- through none other then WND (aka Wingnut News Daily). He claims to essentially have dedicated decades of his life to saving female babies from chinas “one child policy”.
Ok- so some more digging. His group- the “Bethune Instiute does not seem to be registered as a charity or non-profit anywhere. Indeed- it does not even really seem to exist in any meaningful form. Garrow has a couple webpages, but absolutely zero infrastructure to support such a claimed mission.
And looking into the issue of Chinese adoption there is no real information on this guy or his work. However there is a fair bit of talk about him from others who do have a record in the field questioning his claimsabout both himself and his work in China.
And as to the claim he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009- well conveniently there is no way to absolutely prove it false, as the Nobel comittee doesn’t release the names of the nominees for 50 years. (how convenient for him). However- there is no record in the media- not even a press release from him or is group at the time to support his claim.
And of course, Garrow refuses to name his supposed source, saying: “The man who told me this is one of America’s foremost military heroes.”
So I guess we are to believe that high ranking military officials have the honor to refuse thissupposed litmus test and end their careers- yet are not honorable enough to inform the american public themselves.
Odd that those who see a communist/marxist/socialist hiding in every shadow have taken Lenin’s “A lie told often enough becomes the truth” as their method of operating.
I am beginning to think this is all classic misdirection. That the purveyors of conspiracy theories are the conspirers. Manipulating in an attempt to cause a violent revolt. (Or maybe it’s much simpler- financial. Purveying fear to raise the value of their holdings in gold, stock of gun manufacturers, etc)
