Military Extraterritorial Jurisdiction Act – Uncle Sam Without Limits

By March 3rd, 2020

The unspoken mantra of the World’s Greatest Military is “Leave No Man Behind.” It is not a well-kept secret. Until recent wars, it was a way of life. Of course, in theory, our men and women in uniform still live by this code. The de facto truth is that they do not live it. At least the generals and admirals have forgotten it. You see, the unspoken code for our senior officers today is “If it helps my career, it doesn’t matter if it is unethical or immoral.” ................

Here is where this gets scary folks. The military laws can apply to anyone in the world—not just the military. They can apply to you and me. They can apply to the 7 Eleven clerk down the street, or the Dunkin Donuts cashier up the road. You think I’m crazy? It’s called the Military Extraterritorial Jurisdiction Act (MEJA), and you can read about in on the Department of Justice’s website. Here it is in a nutshell: the US Government has no limits to its jurisdiction..............

More recently, these men became known as the Biden Four. Nicholas Slatten, Evan Liberty, Dustin Heard, and Paul Slough were tried and convicted, and sentenced to serve lengthy sentences in federal prison because it was a political win for Joe Biden. Thousands of Americans are rallying behind them, and there is even a website devoted to their release. ..............

Here is the point I’ve been trying to drive home. Even after a federal judge threw these cases out, the Vice President of the United States put pressure on the Justice Department to send these four men to prison to prison. If that is not a political prosecution folks, I do not know what is........To Read More....

My Take - This whole thing isn't new, it's just worse, a lot worse.  Do you remember the 1973  move with Jack Nicholson, The Last Detail? There is little justice in military justice, and the idea of even handed justice is a complete delusion, especially if an officer is involved.   I despised the officers when I was in the service, and I still do.  Does anyone wonder why?
