New DHS Sec Johnson Signifies Push For a Civilian Army

President Obama has named Jeh Charles Johnson as the new Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
 Obama  told the audience  at the Rose Garden that Johnson has “been there in the Situation Room, at the table in moments of decision.”

The president said: “Jeh also knows that meeting these threats demands cooperation and coordination across our government. He’s been there in the Situation Room at the table in moments of decision, working with leaders from a host of agencies to make sure everyone is rowing in the same direction. And he’s respected across our government as a team player, somebody who knows how to get folks who don’t always agree to work towards a common goal.”

Because the “task” of counterterrorism is so great, Obama chose Johnson to continue Janet Napolitano’s “important work”.

With Johnson designing the legal framework for the Obama administrations various policies that justify criminal actions, Obama promised more transparency within his “national security team”.

As a graduate from Columbia Law School (CLS), Johnson has focused his legal career at American civil and criminal trials.

Johnson comes from an interesting family. His grandfather  was part  of a League of Nations (LoN), the  pre-cursor to  the United Nations, mission to Liberia in the 1930s.

The LoN was tasked with encouraging collective action by the global community with the establishment of an arbitration council and the power to initiate economic and military sanctions that were determined to be aggressive.

The Covenant of the LoN reads: “In order to promote international cooperation and to achieve international peace and security by the acceptance of obligations not to resort to war, by the prescription of open, just and honorable relations between nations, by the firm establishment of the understandings of international law as the actual rule of conduct among Governments, and by the maintenance of justice and a scrupulous respect for all treaty obligations in the dealings of organized peoples with one another, Agree to this Covenant of the League of Nations.”

Johnson has served as the assistant to the US Attorney in the Southern District and general counsel of the Air Force by former president William Clinton.

Johnson was  special counsel  to the John Kerry presidential campaign in 2004.

For the presidential campaign of Obama,  Johnson was  the foreign policy adviser and member of Obama’s national finance committee.

In 2012, Johnson was the  general counsel  for the Department of Defense (DoD) after nomination by Obama.

In this role, Johnson was an integral architect of the legal policies of our counterterrorism initiatives.

Part of this scheme, Johnson pressured for the continued support of the Military Commissions Act of 2009 and  worked with  Army General Carter Ham on the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy when its validity was questioned.

Johnson assisted in the propaganda war during the release of classified documents known as the  Afghan War Diary .

In 2011, Johnson attempted to  distort the memory  of civil rights activist, Martin Luther King (MLK) by suggesting in a speech that MLK would have supported the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Johnson  told the audience  that the Afghan and Iraq wars were instances of the US being a global Good Samaritan.

Later that year, Johnson spoke at a conference at the Heritage Foundation (HF), stating  the challenges  of creating a “civilian law enforcement in this country.”

In 2012, Johnson defended the use of targeted killings while speaking to students at Yale Law School.

Johnson also said: “There is risk in permitting and expecting the U.S. military to extend its powerful reach into areas traditionally reserved for civilian law enforcement in this country. The military should not and cannot be the only answer.”

Am I surprised after the firing of top flag officers in every branch of our legitimate armed forces? Why, no. Not all all.  Obama told us he would to this very thing years ago.
