Zionists Are A Fifth Column In America

I don't know the truth of that statement, although it would explain a lot.

What if US Senators and heads of national security agencies were found to have sworn oaths of loyalty to Iran or China?

The bill Obama signed into law on December 31, 2011 called the Indefinite Detention Bill, now called the National Defense Act of 2012, which suspends habeas corpus protection of US civilian citizens in their own country at the behest of that bastard child of false flag 911 - Homeland Security - was authored and presented by Michigan Senator Carl Levin.

Senator Levin holds dual citizenship as an Israeli. One website implies that all 13 Jewish Senators and 27 Reps are dual citizens of Israel.

CONFLICT OF INTEREST

This is conflict of interest. Conflict of interest occurs when an individual in a position of public trust has other interests which could corrupt the motivation to uphold this trust.

Questioning dual citizenship of elected officials is in no way anti Semitism. The issue is conflict of interest pure and simple.

This has nothing to with being 'anti-Israel' any more than questioning dual Chinese-American citizenship senators would be.
The same would apply if the senator that introduced this bill had Iranian, Chinese, or Russian dual citizenship. Dual citizenship should be not be allowed for US legislators, Federal bureaucrats, Federal Judges, US military personnel, or any position of influence of national security.

There's nothing wrong with a doctor, a banker, or teacher having dual citizenship. They aren't in positions of public trust. It's entirely inappropriate for a public servant.

Sen. Levin is chairman of the Armed Services Committee. That means he is empowered with legislative oversight of the nation's military, including the Department of Defense, military research and development, nuclear energy (as pertaining to national security), benefits for members of the military, the Selective Service System and other matters related to defense policy. In addition he is ex-officio on the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, and Select Committee on Intelligence. This man has control of the most powerful military in the world.

With due respect for Levin - as a citizen and resident of Israel, how can he be objective about US interests in the Middle East?

DID THIS GET KENNEDY KILLED?

But we aren’t discussing average citizens here, so we move to the question at hand: should legislators be allowed to have dual nationality? No major country that I know of allows a dual national to hold high office. And Pakistan doesn’t as well, and it shouldn’t.

The reasons for that need not be as insidious as potential treason. First, there is the issue of equity — it gives some people double representation. Second, it creates ease of flight, and when holding political office that is the last thing that should be open to someone. Third, there are genuine reasons where dual nationalities for legislators can create conflicts of interest, especially between countries like the US and Pakistan whose purposes are not always aligned.

Academically, there is no evidence to suggest that there is more likelihood for a dual national to betray a country than a single nationality holder. But in countries with strong nationalism, like Germany and Pakistan, and security concerns, like America and Pakistan, dual nationality can become a lightning rod issue around the fear that it could create the breeding grounds for duplicity.

Does Truth Have A Future In America? — Paul Craig Roberts

Government agencies and corporations recognize the threat posed to their control of explanations by internet writers and hire “trolls” to use the comment sections of sites to discredit truth-tellers. The combination of trolls and readers who only want to hear what they want to hear can bury the truths that try to emerge.

The year 2012 consisted of a continuous sequence of destructive acts by Congress and the White House. In a final destructive act, the Senate passed the National Defense Authorization Act for 2013. This act continues the unconstitutional grant of power to the executive branch to violate all rights of US citizens. In the US laws cannot take precedence over the Constitution. Yet, we now have successive National Defense Authorization Acts that render the Bill of Rights moot.

Report Lists Dual Nationality Holders Who Have Served in Govt Offices

On February 19, 1942, soon after the beginning of World War II, Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066. The evacuation order commenced the round-up of 120,000 Americans of Japanese heritage to one of 10 internment camps—officially called "relocation centers"—in California, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Wyoming, Colorado, and Arkansas.

Why Were the Camps Established?
Roosevelt's executive order was fueled by anti-Japanese sentiment among farmers who competed against Japanese labor, politicians who sided with anti-Japanese constituencies, and the general public, whose frenzy was heightened by the Japanese attack of Pearl Harbor. More than two-thirds of the Japanese who were interned in the spring of 1942 were citizens of the United States.
