Will Our Military Fire Upon Us? Survey Says….

January 8, 2013 at 5:00 am / by

Recently a young soldier was upset enough to contact Politichicks.tv in regards to a survey he was asked to take in his official capacity. This isn’t just any survey and definitely not something you would expect to be filling out when you just signed up to defend and protect the sovereignty of your beloved country and her citizens with your very life if called upon! So just what is this survey?  This military questionnaire is not new and has been quietly lurking around since the Clinton years, waiting for the time when it can be fully played out and reap its usefulness. I believe that time is now. The timing is something of a magnitude in which I now feel deserves the full attention of the American people considering we have a sitting President who rules by executive order and has openly declared gun control as one of his top priorities of the new year. Add in the facts that Obama and his administration is cutting defense spending while giving more power to the UN and building up alternate civilian forces as he is trying to unarm the American people and we can see we are heading for a perfect storm.

This particular survey was first given in 1995 right after the “Clinton Weapons Ban” and was passed out to a few hundred Marines in 29 Palms, California. This was not done by the Pentagon but according to an article in New American Magazine in October of 1995 written by John F. McManus, this survey was supposedly part of an academic project by Navy Lt. Ernest Guy Cunningham. Not surprisingly the survey alarmed many of the marines and copies soon were circulated among gun rights supporters. Cunningham quickly told McManus that he himself is a member of the NRA and didn’t agree with the tone of the questions that the survey was only intended to confirm and then pass on to the higher authorities his fears about “the lack of knowledge among the soldiers regarding the U.S. Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and their heritage as Americans.” I wonder what type of grade he earned for such a useful and overused questionnaire. Sounds like the way they cover their tracks even today! Always make the wrong sound right.

Here are two of the questions in the survey; please consider the importance:

Strongly agree/Disagree/Agree Strongly/Agree/No Opinion

45: I would swear to the following code: “I am a United Nations fighting person. I serve in the forces which maintain world peace and every nation’s way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense.”

(___) (___) (___)

(___) (___)

Strongly agree Disagree Agree Strongly

Agree No Opinion

46: The U.S. government declares a ban on the possession, sale, transportation, and transfer of all non‑sporting firearms. A thirty (30) day amnesty period is permitted for these firearms to be turned over to the local authorities. At the end of this period, a number of citizen groups refuse to turn over their firearms. Consider the following statement: I would fire on U.S. citizens who refuse or resist confiscation of firearms banned by the U.S. government?

(___) (___) (___)

(___) (___)

Do you wonder how most of our military answered these questions? Does this chill you to your core? It should! You can read the full survey here:  http://thenewalexandrialibrary.com/armysurvey.html

Next time you hear people say it is okay to give up our guns to make a safer America, or that it is ok that the TSA treats us as lesser beings than cattle, or even that it is a good thing for the DHS to train our police forces on how to control urban situations against “home grown terrorists”, remind them that they are the reason our freedoms are dissipating before our very eyes. Thank God in Heaven we still have our Vets and brave military men and women who want us to open our eyes and see what is going on in the ranks of our “protectors”.

ARMED FORCES SURVEY

U.S. Armed Forces Survey: This is the questionnaire that was given in 1994 to select groups of U.S. armed forces personnel. Notice the references to the U.N., the firing on American civilians and the correlations of the two aforementioned. Note questions 8‑17 deal with the use of U.S. federal armed forces intervening in the civilian affairs of the U.S. public under the pretense of policemen. According to the U.S. Constitution (posse comitatus law) No federal forces are to be used in the civil control of the populace. Also note question 46 for a stunning question concerning the use of federal forces.

Note questions 18‑45 deals entirely with the United Nations, which is really the heart of this survey. Questions 1‑7 are only lead in questions for the rest of the survey.

Results to the article (paper file) is “Incredible” – The following is all taken in order: Combat Arms Survey: This questionnaire is to gather data concerning the attitudes of combat trained personnel with regards to non‑traditional missions.

Now ask yourself these questions:

1: Are we to turn over our armed forces to the U.N.?

2: Can we be the U.N.’s world policeman?

3: Or the world’s policeman on our own?

4: Should we give oath of allegiance to a foreign power?

5: Should we compromise our U.S. Constitution in the name of world government?

6: Who is first, the United States or the rest of the world, specifically the United Nations?

7: Would you rather answer to a world court (United Nations court) or to the courts of the United States?

8: Do you believe you will have any say in a world government or world court (United Nations)?

9: Are you willing to sacrifice national sovereignty for world laws and courts?

10: Is the United Nations better able to dictate our lives to us than we as a country are?

11: DO YOU BELIEVE IN A NEW WORLD ORDER RUN BY THE UNITED NATIONS?

Think about it, that is what this survey was meant to convey, A New World Order Run By the United Nations!

Here are the results of the survey:

Shoot Americans (New World Order Survey of Last Year) Survey Results One In Four Marines would fire! Results are in from the U.S. military “shoot Americans” survey ‑ and they are disquieting By Mike Blair. About one in four U.S. Marines would be willing to fire upon American citizens in a government gun confiscation program, according to the results of a survey undertaken nearly a year ago at a Marine Corps Base in Southern California. In addition, more than four out of five of the Marines surveyed indicated they would be willing to “participate in missions under a U.S. National Emergency Police Force.”

The SPOTLIGHT has been provided the results of the survey contained in a master degree thesis, reportedly undertaken by a student at the Naval Postgraduate School at Monterey California, to determine “unit cohesion” when soldiers are assigned to “non‑traditional missions.” Few stories published in the SPOTLIGHT have created such a stir when it was revealed in this newspaper’s July 25,1994 issue that the survey had been taken at the Marine base. On May 10,1994, the survey was undertaken by Navy Lt. Cmdr. Ernest G. Cunningham, purportedly as research for his thesis: “Peacekeeping and U.N. Operational control; A Study of their effect on Unit Cohesion,” at the Marine base, located on the South‑east corner of the Mojave Desert, about 70 miles due east of San Bernadino, California, just east of Los Angeles

Received Degree: Cunningham turned in the thesis for printing on March 20 and was graduated from the post Graduate school on March 23, receiving his Master of Science in Manpower, Personnel and Training Analysis degree. According to U.S. Navy and Marine Corps officials, Cunningham administrated the survey to 300 Marine veterans of the Persian Gulf War and the earlier invasion of Panama in the base auditorium.

He had the cooperation and permission of the base’s public affairs officer, but Cunningham did not have consent of the base commander, Brig. Gen. Russell H. Sutton. In fact, Sutton did not know about the survey until afterwards. The results of the survey have until now been “classified,” according to a Marine Corps spokesman. The survey contained 46 questions dealing with the Marines’ willingness to perform “non‑traditional” missions. Question 46, dealing with a gun confiscation scenario, jolted both the Marines and Navy, as well as The Department of Defense, numerous members of the House and Senate and virtually every American concerned with the second amendment to the U.S. constitution, which grantees the people’s right to “keep and bear arms.”

Very Disturbing: This is how the question was posed to the Marines: “The U.S. Government declares a ban on the possession, sale, transportation, and transfer of all non‑sporting firearms. A thirty (30) day amnesty period is permitted for these firearms to be turned over to the local authorities. At the end of this period, a number of citizen groups refuse to turn over their firearms. “Consider the following statement:’I would fire upon U.S. citizens who refuse or resist confiscation of firearms banned by the U.S. government’.” The question was then posed as to what degree the individual Marine agreed with the statement. According to results given in Cunningham’s thesis, a total of 88 percent, or 264 Marines, responded to the question. Of the 264 who responded, 26.34 percent, or 79 Marines indicated they would be willing to fire upon U.S. citizens.”

Of that total, 18.67 percent or 56 Marines, indicated they “agree” with the statement, and 7.67 percent or 23 Marines, indicated that “strongly agree.” A total of 61.66 percent, or 185, indicated that they were opposed to firing on citizens.

Of that total, 42.33 percent, or 127 indicated they “strongly disagree” and 19.33 percent or 58, indicated they “disagree.” In is thesis, Cunningham noted: “This particular question, unlike the others, elicited from 15.97 percent of the respondents with an opinion, either heavier pen or pencil marks on the response or written comments in the margin space. The responses to this scenario suggest that a complete unit breakdown could occur in a unit tasked to execute this mission.”

In other words, if a commander asked the men of his unit to raise their hands in a simple poll, he could determine the position of such servicemen and those who responded in the affirmative could be tasked for such a mission. This is just one of the reasons the question, not to mention the fact that it was allowed to be asked, is obviously potentially dangerous. In fact, several months before the survey was taken at Twenty‑Nine Palms, the SPOTLIGHT, MODERN GUN and other publications revealed the question posed by Cunningham in his survey had ben asked of members of a U.S. Seal (Sea‑Air‑land) team. In addition, despite Navy and Marine Corps denials, there have been dozens of reports, unconfirmed, that the survey has been given to other servicemen, as well as various law enforcement agents.

Further Surveys? In fact, Cunningham notes: “If the results of this survey elicit concerns in the areas queried, then further studies are warranted. Perhaps a random sample survey should be conducted to determine whether the results of this survey is valid for the entire Marine Corps and/or Army. Also, a survey could provide an indication of the volunteer pool that would seek service in units dedicated to, and specialized in, peacekeeping operations…Also of concern is the fact, as reported by Cunningham in his thesis that 97.67 percent of the Marines responded to a question‑‑an overwhelming 85.33 percent in the affirmative‑‑that they would be willing to participate in missions under a U.S. National Emergency Police Force…” “Furthermore,” Cunningham notes “43.0 percent of the soldiers strongly agreed…”Federal Troops have been restricted from participation with local police authorities to quell domestic violence since the passage of the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878. That being the case, it was surprising that these soldiers seemed not to know the legal restrictions placed on them by this act.” He also noted, however, that “In May 1992, 4,000 U.S. Army and Marine Soldiers were ordered by President George Bush to augment city and county law enforcement and state National Guard during the riot in Los Angeles, California following the Rodney King trial. “Since, 1981,” Cunningham states, “the majority of today’s All Volunteer Force has been exposed to and participated in an environment of expanding non‑traditional missions when Congress passed the Military

Cooperation with Civilian Law Enforcement Agencies Act of 1981. This act enabled the Military to participate in the drug war. This cooperative alliance of military and civilian police efforts in the name of national security may have eroded the demarcation between civilian law enforcement and our military institution first established by the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878.”

The results of another question, No. 45, posed by the survey indicates American soldiers are not eager to swear allegiance to the United Nations, although nearly one in four would do so. Question 45 states: “I would swear to the following code:’I am a United Nations fighting person. I serve in the forces which maintain world peace and every nation’s way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense’.” A total of 69.33 percent, or 208 Marines surveyed, indicated they disagreed, with 117, or 39 percent, indicating they strongly disagreed.

On the other hand, 71 Marines, or 23.66 percent, indicated they would be willing to swear such allegiance to the UN, with 19, or 6.33 percent, indicating they were strongly in favor of doing so. “For thousands of years.” Cunningham notes in his thesis, “military organizations have required their soldiers to swear to some kind of code or allegiance. A code provides a standard for the soldiers to live up to and, in many cases, to die for. A code can be a powerful tool for establishing and sustaining unit cohesion. But what if the mission a solider is assigned to perform counters or confuses the code he has sworn to uphold? Question 45 was presented to determine if the solders would swear to such a code.” No one knows if the American personnel traveling in the helicopter shot down over Iraq [by “friendly fire”] in April 1994 would have sworn allegiance to such a code.

Yet, Vice President Albert Gore stated that these Americans “died in the service of The United Nations.” “It is patently clear,” a retired high ranking Army Officer told The SPOTLIGHT,”that this survey raises some very serious issues, not the least of which is that U.S. servicemen are not being properly educated as to the limits of their service in the civilian sector. This is most dangerous, and, I should think the Congress has an obligation to the people to take a careful look at this, not to mention the people at the Pentagon.”
