“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer
As an Independent candidate on the ballot for Anaheim Mayor for our Municipal Elections for November 6th, 2018, I recognize, understand, and accept what I say, write and declare will be a matter of official and public record. Precisely because of what I state is official and public record, I and my fellow mayoral candidates Ashleigh Aitken, Lorri Galloway, Rudy Gaona, Tony D. Martin, Harry Sidhu, Cynthia Ward, and Robert Williams are running for elected office, that at the time of filing our nomination papers with Anaheims City Clerk, we all voluntarily swore to defend our United States Constitution, which also implicitly implies defending our Constitution from enemies foreign and domestic.
Also, like Dietrich Bonhoeffer, I feel compelled not to remain silent on what I see, hear, and think that undermines, threatens and weakens our United States Constitution. Carefully crafted fake, deliberately misleading and intentionally incomplete news coverage that is intended to favor, benefit, and reward a particular political party over another opposing political party is equally as dangerous to our way of life, liberty, and democracy as carefully crafted, deliberate and intentional foreign propaganda designed for ulterior motives. Information warfare is continually evolving, technologically adapting and improving in quantity and believability. Fake, misleading and intentionally incomplete news manufactured domestically directly undermines, threatens and weakens our democracy, liberty, our way of life, and hence our very United States Constitution by sabotaging our election process to remain free, fair, transparent, accurate and accountable.
For several years there has been a concerted effort by select politicians, certain news outlets and government agencies within the USA to confuse, misinform, and deceive the American public on the Syrian Civil War that started in 2011. There are many self-serving reasons why select politicians, particular news outlets and select government agencies within the USA would willfully mislead, intentionally misinform and blatantly lie to our American public like you and me, our brave women and men in uniform, and to the rest of the world. From President George Bush’s WMD (weapons of mass destruction) deceit campaign to the United Nations and the American public that precipitated the $1.7 trillion Iraq War (Reuters) to Presidents Obama’s and Trump’s deliberately, carefully, and dangerously manufactured allegation of chemical weapons use inside Syria by President Bashar Assad, the fake news or information warfare, is ongoing and continuous.
It is a moral imperative for all patriotic candidates like myself and others to do our part and speak out against carefully crafted fake, deliberately misleading and intentionally incomplete news coverage such as the chemical weapon use inside Syria that implies, accuses and manufactures culpability to President Bashar Assad, and to the governments of Syria and Russia. It is my official statement that Russia, the Syrian government, and Syrian President Bashar Assad would not conceal, manufacture or use chemical weaponry since the destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons began on 14 September 2013, coordinated by Ambassadors Sergei Lavrov (Russia) and John Kerry (USA). To be sure, in a religious civil war like Syria, both sides are guilty of war crimes, atrocities, and genocide. Nevertheless, Syria, Russia, and Iran would not use chemical weapons inside Syria, for one very simple fact; they are winning a conventional war of attrition against a lesser armed, ill-equipped and less motivated force. By all military logic, chemical weapon use will be used by all likelihood, probability, and reasonable by armed forces hostile and in opposition to Russia, the Syrian government and President Bashar Assad.
Presently, at the time of this writing, September 10th, 2018, the militaries of Syria, Russia, and Iran have been on an absolute offense with conventional forces and weapons on the Syrian province of Idlib to decisively end the Syrian Religious Civil War that started in 2011. The Syrian government, Russia and Iran have no logical interest in offering other foreign powers like the USA and the EU as a pretext or reason to attack Syria by using chemical weapons on or near Idlib.
Here are some a key facts to remember regarding the Syrian Religious Civil War and why the Syrian military would not manufacture, conceal, or use chemical weapons on the Syrian city of Idlib.
1.) Russia’s has consistently supplied, train, and resupplied enormous quantities of conventional arms like tanks, aircraft, ships, missiles, artillery, and combat gear since the start of the Syrian Religious Civil War to forces loyal to President Bashar Assad, thereby proving beyond any reasonable doubt, any logical, rational, and practical reasoning not to manufacture, conceal or use chemical weapons on or near Idlib.
2.) If President Bashar Assad and the Syrian government defeat the armed forces in Idlib with overwhelming conventional forces, the Syrian Religious Civil War is for all intense and purposes will end in favor for the Syrian government led by President Bashar Assad, Russia, and Iran.
3.) A victory for the Syrian government led by President Bashar Assad would facilitate, expedite, and compel Syria, Iran, Iraq, and Russia to begin construction immediately of a lucrative transit pathway from Central Asia to export gas, oil, and energy to Europe and globally. Competing nations wanted to use Afghanistan and Pakistan to transport Central Asia’s enormous proven gas and oil reserves, and this is no longer practical, safe and reasonable due to the instability of the region.
Summary, the Syrian government led by President Bashar Assad and the has overwhelming conventional forces supplied from Russia, widespread popular support at home (from both Muslim and Christians) is consistent. Carefully crafted fake, deliberately misleading and intentionally incomplete news coverage alleging chemical use attack by Syrian government forces near or in Idlib will be just that, fake, deliberate, and intentional to create a false flag operation just like the WMD of 2003 with the invasion of Iraq. It’s time to keep our brave women and men in our US Armed Forces home with us. It’s time to spend trillions of US Dollars here at home in Anaheim, California, and for the rest of our great nation on our schools, roads, bridges to create more jobs. The Iraq War was started by a fake, deliberate, and intentional false flag operation that cost our nation in treasure and blood beyond description. Our brave women and men in our Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force all deserve better leadership from all of us as candidates and elected officials.
Our first President, George Washington, warned us of regionalism, partisanship, and foreign entanglements. As an Independent candidate, I will be that Mayor that transcends Democrat or Republican partisanship. As a fellow native Californian, I work hard as a patriotic American to deter foreign entanglements as much as I can as a private citizen. I look forward to working hard keep all of Anaheim as well informed as possible.
More information is coming soon!
God Bless our Republican President Trump (Donald J. Trump) and Democrat Governor Jerry Brown (Edmund Gerald Brown Jr.)
