    USS LIBERTY



    On June 8, 1967, Israeli aircraft and torpedo boats attacked a clearly marked American ship, the USS Liberty. The Six Day War was just getting underway, and it is still unclear why the Israelis decided to attack the ship, intending to sink the ship and kill all crewmen aboard.

    The Liberty was clearly in international waters and intercepting signals from any and all parties in the area. Two Israeli planes appeared and made an identifying pass over the ship. With the ship clearly marked and a large American flag flying, the crew felt no threat when they saw the Israeli markings on the jets. Suddenly, the jets assumed an attack formation and began bombing and strafing th ship. Aside from the ship's masts being damaged, the Israelis began jamming SOS signals from the Liberty.

    Captain McGonagle was still under the false assumption the attack was a mistake. Soon three torpedo boats and two other Israeli jets would begin attacking his ship. The Israeli boats launched torpedoes into the ship, while the two new planes, carrying napalm, dropped their bombs on the deck where the wounded had been placed. With his sinking, Captain McGonagle ordered the life boats lowered. An Israeli boat appeared and asked if he needed assistance. The boat then began machine-gunning the life boats and crew. Captain McGonagle yelled "$#@! you" to the Israeli navy as he realized the intention was to murder his entire crew. His only option was to keep the ship from sinking.

    The captain engaged in heroic efforts to save his ship and crew, which earned him the Medal of Honor. Unfortunately, President Johnson and others insisted on giving the medal in secret, afraid of criticism of Israeli actions. All crew were sworn to secrecy and threatened with legal action were they to reveal that Israel intentionally attacked a clearly marked American ship.

    If I were to be elected to Congress, I would immediately start a process of obtaining murder and arrest warrants against all Israeli personnel involved. If our own American government refuses to support such action, the International Criminal Court is the next option as I see it. Israel has worked with the US DOJ in extraditing former Nazi guards for trial and prison. This is no different, as Israel engaged in numerous "grave breaches" of the Geneva Conventions with this attack. The deaths of 34 crewmen and wounding of 171 others is nothing short of murder and attempted murder.

    He's also for single payer, 90% income tax over 10 million, plans on a Jubilee (a plank for debt forgiveness - every 50 years banks must forgive all student loan and mortgage debt), wants to boost NASA spending from 18 million to a nice round 100 million so he can see a flag on Mars and also has an Ayn Rand plank. o_O Spoiler alert - he loathes her.

    He saved his best tactic for last - a Shunning. Personally, I have no problem with shunning but I'm not okay with making it law. Not exactly sure how he plans on enacting the Shunning. He plans on shunning rapists, murderers, thieves, psychopaths, or just plain stupid people.

    I'm not gonna lie - this is pretty good.



    John Bolton is a draft-dodging coward calling for wars he refuses to fight in. If elected to Congress, I will tell John either he meets me in the ring, or I will give him a public beating.
    He is anti war, I think.

    Great post , but 'Any Rand' Plank ?

    I don't believe Ayn ties in with 90% tax, forgiving loans, and massive increase in Nasa funding.

    Thank you I needed that. Perhaps it will be a government sanctioned event like "The Purge".

    I'd rather be shunned. It won't be a big loss for me because I'm pretty sure most of the people I care about will be shunned right along with me. Plus, it will give me an excuse not to go to Mass with my mom. Sorry mom, I got shunned.

    Indeed. Remember the Alvin Greene (SC Dem Senate candidate) action figure? Kinda crazy but I'm not gonna lie, I didn't hate that idea.

    The American Party is a Paleoconservative Party.
    Why is a liberal allowed to run for that party?

    I guess for the same reason Republicans (conservative party) run liberals.

    Since the rest of his platform is no threat since it will never get passed, I would vote for him to send a message on the USS Liberty alone. Especially if he can draw national attention to the issue by being on the ballot.
