At a time when tensions between NATO and Russia are increasing, the US government agency in charge of overseeing conscription, should a military draft be resumed, issued on Twitter on March 23 a hypothetical treatment for conscientious objectors.
The Selective Service System tweeted, “In the case of a draft, our agency would cooperate with @fema [Federal Emergency Management Agency] to provide chances to conscientious objectors to ensure our nation keeps moving forward.”
“Today, all conscientious objectors are forced to register with the Selective Service System,” it said, linking to a webpage. The webpage did not go into detail about how SSS will collaborate with FEMA.
On Twitter, the message generated a stir.
“I vehemently oppose any form of compulsory’service,'” wrote @therealbertprmo.
In an email interview with The Epoch Times, Michael Migliana, the SSS’s acting deputy director, said, “While there is currently no draft, registration with the Selective Service System is the most publicly visible program during peacetime that ensures operational readiness in a fair and equitable manner.”
He said the latest tweet was “part of our overall awareness campaign,” noting that the agency had sent out a tweet with the same message on July 19, 2021. FEMA is one of many state and federal agencies to which conscientious objectors could be assigned as part of the Alternative Service Employment Network if a draft were to be authorized.
FEMA was one of seven such organizations that have signed a new or modified Memorandum of Understanding with the Selective Service System, according to Migliana.
“In the past, the SSS had MOUs with some private nonprofit organisations to accept assignments of conscientious objectors for alternative duty,” said Edward Hasbrouck, a journalist for the non-interventionist website antiwar.com who covers selective service issues.
“Many of the memorandums of understanding, including all of the ones with private businesses [nonprofits], were signed years ago and had since expired.
“In order to make its’readiness’ appear more believable, even though it’s evident that it wouldn’t be able to carry out a draft in the face of inevitable resistance,” Hasbrouck continued, “the SSS has made it a priority recently to re-up and negotiate more of these agreements.”
“One of the agency’s preparation requirements is that conscientious objectors be placed in one of six permitted occupations: health care services, educational services, environmental programs, social services, community services, and agricultural activities,” Migliana stated.
“Our agency would quickly offer troops to the Department of Defense while also providing an alternate service program for conscientious objectors if permitted by the President and Congress.”
“The SSS also publicizes its readiness to process conscientious objectors as a way of deterring anti-draft activism by instilling false confidence in people who object to war and conscription that they will be able to apply for conscientious objector status and that the SSS will deal with conscientious objectors and assign them to alternative service,” Hasbrouck said.
“What the SSS doesn’t say, of course, is that most people who oppose a war don’t qualify for conscientious objector status, and many people who do will almost certainly be rejected by militarist draft boards.”
Almost all male U.S. citizens and male U.S. immigrants between the ages of 18 and 25 are required to register with the agency. Women are excluded from this rule.
To approve a new draft, Congress would have to change the Military Selective Service Act and give the President the authority to induct troops.
Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine last month, the risk of direct conflict between NATO and Russia has grown.
Hasbrouck believes that current developments in the country demonstrate the futility of military conscription.
“The Russian invasion of Ukraine demonstrates the dangers of placing unreasonable expectations on a conscript army’s willingness to fight, as well as how the supposed availability of an endless supply of draftees emboldens war planners and makes military adventurism more plausible,” he said.
The notion of collective defense was strengthened by Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty, which founded NATO in 1949. It means that if any member state is attacked, all other countries will respond.
Norway, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, and Poland are NATO members that border Russia directly. Turkey, a NATO member with a tumultuous relationship with Moscow, is separated from Moscow by the Black Sea.
Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Hungary, and Romania are among the NATO member states that border Ukraine.
NATO issued a statement clarifying its defense readiness doctrine against Russia on March 24. The text did not advocate for a no-fly zone above Ukraine, as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has supported.
The Selective Service Act of 1917, passed shortly after the United States entered World War I, was the first to institute mandatory military service.
In 1973, under President Richard Nixon, the United States shifted to an all-volunteer military.
With a decree issued in 1975, President Gerald Ford abolished the registration requirement for men aged 18 to 25.
President Jimmy Carter, through a proclamation issued in 1980, reinstated the Selective Service System by requiring young men to register once more.
We shouldn’t be surprised at all that the United States government is coercing conscientious objectors to sign up for selective service. As mentioned above, once signed up for selective service one is NOT guaranteed to be classified as a conscientious objector. In fact, the militarist draft boards hold an inarguable bias. In the event of an all out war, the department of defense will need all the people it can get. The facts are, the conscientious objectors CANNOT find themselves shoulder to shoulder with willing and able warriors. They’ll only get in the way, and cause more casualties.
We’ve got a long road ahead of us but through faith in Jesus we’re all saved; Including our persecutors. 1 Peter 4:12-14 says: “Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.”Stay inquisitive in the word of God, and the world around you.
Following the agency’s “coding logic error,” reported pediatric deaths had decreased by nearly a quarter.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) COVID Data Tracker has supplied information on the severity of the coronavirus situation in the United States since the commencement of the COVID pandemic two years ago. It was frequently praised by health officials as the go-to source for up-to-date information on the pandemic in the United States. However, it now appears that the agency’s data, notably on the number of child COVID deaths, was erroneous by up to 24%.
When the Omicron strain of COVID spread earlier this year, the CDC’s COVID Data Tracker “gave a deceptive image” before it addressed its “coding logic issue,” claiming that infants were “dying at a substantially magnified rate,” according to the Washington Examiner. There were 1,755 all-time deaths among youngsters aged 0 to 17 years old, according to the organization. According to the agency, 738 people died in the first ten weeks of 2022.
However, after discovering a “coding logic issue,” the government released revised statistics. As a result, the COVID Data Tracker now shows 1,339 all-time fatalities, down from 1,755 at the start. This was a reduction of 23.7 percent from the previous estimate. The danger of COVID to children is “insanely low,” according to Not the Bee, compared to 1,115 child cancer fatalities in 2019.
“After correcting a coding logic problem, figures on deaths were corrected on March 15, 2022. “As a result, fatality counts reduced across all demographic categories,” according to the tracker. The tracker had unintentionally counted non-COVID linked deaths, according to CDC spokeswoman Jasmine Reed.
Reed stated they removed up to 72,277 deaths from the CDC tracker’s “mortality statistics” on March 14, including 416 pediatric deaths that were “previously recorded across 26 states” due to the algorithm “inadvertently counting deaths that were not COVID-19-related.” She went on to say that while working with “near real-time data” was “important,” it also meant that they “frequently have inadequate information when data is first reported.”
When it comes to providing COVID data, the CDC has long been chastised for its lack of transparency. Senator Ron Johnson, a Republican, is one of the most outspoken critics of the CDC, writing a letter on March 1 criticizing the agency’s “disturbing and humiliating” lack of transparency. The Republican leader called the CDC’s decision to “withhold crucial COVID-19 data that could inform the public and potentially save lives” “unacceptable.”
Senator Johnson isn’t the only one who has criticized the CDC. According to The Blaze, American Commitment president Phil Kerpen called the agency’s numbers “completely opaque and out-of-line with CDC’s more accurate (NCHS) figure” on Twitter.
Kyle Becker, a former Fox News reporter, also turned to Twitter to slam the CDC, stating, “‘Experts’ willfully scared parents and harmed America’s children for political reasons.” Criminals.”
Bret Baier, a Fox News anchor, confronted CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky in January, asking her to reveal how many deaths in the United States were “from COVID” versus “with COVID,” a distinction that showed deaths due to COVID alone or deaths among patients who had COVID but had other comorbidities. Dr. Walensky was unable to provide a precise response, but stated that the FDA was “very closely following that.”
It goes without saying that the falsification of this data is to blame for many scared parents feeling obligated to vaccinate their children and subject them to psychologically harmful masking when in school. Despite the data indicating that the children didn’t require such measures to be in place. This all adds up to a big scheme by big pharma and tyrannical globalist politicians selling out just to line their pockets. A coding error is quite the convenient excuse as to why an entire nation was misled to believe their children were in more danger than they really were. Nevertheless, we pray for those who seek to persecute us because that is Jesus’ teaching. As well as for those who have been negatively impacted by this scheme. Stay inquisitive in the word of God, and the world around you.
