"Sex and perjury were the wrong impeachment offenses. It should have been on his treachery and failure to live up to his oath of office."
U.S. Army Gen. Albion Knight, Jr. (Ret.)
In an era of declining military morale, controversial deployments, questionable readiness and a commander in chief plagued by continual scandal, U.S. Army Gen. Albion Knight -- proclaiming a worldview shared by many in his generation -- claims to see a way out.
Knight is not evasive and pulls no punches in his lively analysis of what is wrong with America and how to fix it.
Having graduated from West Point in 1945, Knight served as a commissioned officer in Japan, and later as a top U.S. commander in Vietnam and with NATO. Upon his retirement from the military, Knight served through several administrations in nuclear security. U.S. Army Brigadier Gen. Albion Knight, Jr. (Ret.) In 1992, the general ran for vice president, along with Howard Phillips, on the U.S. Taxpayers Party ticket. He has also been an ordained clergyman since 1954.
Recently, WorldNetDaily had an in-depth interview with the retired Army general. "After World War II, the top U.S. military leaders taught me to look at the world from a strategic viewpoint -- something that too few leaders have a chance to do. I saw first-hand the magnificent work of Gen. Douglas MacArthur in Japan," said Knight.
"After returning to the U.S. in 1947, the Army sent me to the University of Illinois for two years to earn a masters degree in electrical engineering -- plus gain a wonderful wife. In 1950, I reported to Albuquerque, N.M., and began my first of five tours of duty in the nuclear weapons field. I took part in the Army's excellent educational system at every level."
Between 1959 and 1970, Knight served two challenging tours on the Army staff, a year with the Atomic Energy Commission and a year in the back-office of Secretary of Defense Melvin Laird. Later, Knight served as a professional staff member of the Joint Committee on Atomic Energy of the Congress -- the predecessor organization to the Department of Energy.
"I resigned my position at the Department of Energy in protest over the Carter administration's disarmament desires. We lost the war in Vietnam for one simple reason: The U.S. government did not want to win the war. Carter's policies were a continuation of that policy of defeat, retreat and surrender vis-a-vis the betrayal of Iran, Nicaragua, Rhodesia, Afghanistan and the near betrayal of South Korea.
"But in 1980, President Ronald Reagan began his great work to restore America's pride and military."
Knight said that Reagan succeeded by harnessing his vast communications skills honed by years of acting in Hollywood.
"Reagan's message was this: 'I am proud to be an American. I will fulfill my oath of office to keep our people safe from all dangers, foreign and domestic.' He understood America's vital role in being a source of freedom in a very dangerous world and that, to remain free, we had to be strong. He also had the ability to speak the truth in a believable, simple and direct way. Americans trusted him."
During the 1980s, Knight was involved in a unique project. He and others were asked by members of the Reagan administration to draft a list of goals that would be the framework of a Marxist president if one were to be elected to lead the United States.
"We concluded that a Marxist and / or communist president, if he ever came to power, would focus on the transfer of national sovereignty at every opportunity to international organizations. He or she would also weaken the armed forces physically, mentally and spiritually. The 'dumbing down' of our public school educational system would also accelerate."
"Furthermore, we decided that a Marxist president would assist all or most of America's enemies -- Russia, China, Cuba, radical Islam, North Korea and others. He would disregard the Constitution at every opportunity and rule by decree, meaning executive orders would earmark such an administration. Bogus arms control agreements, buying-off or intimidating Congress by stealing the FBI files of its members, controlling the media and trying to stop all alternative media would also be major goals."
In addressing the two terms in office of President Bill Clinton, Gen. Knight is resolute. "What has Clinton done in this regard? He has hit every one of the above actions and more. I have a file over six inches thick with articles describing these actions. The salami slices add-up to a message of treason. Sex and perjury were the wrong impeachment offenses. It should have been on his treachery and failure to live up to his oath-of-office.
"Clinton has helped Marxists and terrorists and their 'world revolution' at every opportunity.
Cultural Marxism is also a key Clinton goal. He has been giving us a bad example that it is all right to lie, cheat, steal, threaten and even rape women if it is done in high office.
There is a steady movement toward a Gestapo-like control over the people. There is today in the U.S. a total lack of any sense of nation and its protection as required by his oath-of-office. Furthermore, Clinton has been selling and giving our nuclear and other high technology secrets to communist China and giving Russia the money to re-arm at U.S. taxpayers' expense."
Speaking on U.S. relations in the 1990s and at the turn of the millennium, Knight says, "China and Russia have threatened to nuke us. Why are Americans unconcerned? I believe it is because so many of our people don't know and many don't want to know. The government does not want them to know because, by and large, the present government fears and distrusts the people. The government-controlled media and the transnational banks don't want Americans to know. But, our people must know if we are to survive as a free nation."
"We must tell Russia and China that we intend to stay alive and to be strong. Next, we should remind them that the motto on the old War of Independence rattlesnake flag is still true: 'Don't Tread on Me!' There are consequences to their threats. Yet, as Ronald Reagan did, we must tell the world the truth -- China and Russia are still the 'evil empire.' It must be articulated over and over again."
Knight went on to add that America should terminate all foreign aid to Russia and China, via the World Bank, the IMF and direct loans, re-take the Panama Canal, deploy a missile defense shield, control U.S. borders, slap a tariff on Chinese-made goods and publish intelligence information on Russian and Chinese duplicity.
"In the 1990s, first George Bush and then Bill Clinton proclaimed that the Cold War was over and that America won it. Communism was dead and our former enemies no longer threaten us and have become our friends. Therefore, we can safely reap a huge 'peace dividend' from our bloated military structure that was no longer needed. It seems clear that these rosy assessments were premature. Thus, it is time for a re-evaluation.
"Americans like to work in conditions of stability where we can best use our talents for organization and planning. The long Cold War gave us that stability. We thought we had reached an understanding with the Soviet Union that we would not blow each other off the map. We thought that we had a new strategic partner in communist China. Our business and financial communities saw huge opportunity for trade with Russia and China. They were encouraged to do this by a socialist federal government on the basis that it would help other Marxists, add to its political coffers, help world brotherhood, bring about a global economic system and ensure lasting peace."
Knight believes the ideals of the post-Cold War world are something akin to a "false utopia," especially regarding the Bush and Clinton-era policies toward Russia and China.
"The New World Order is a utopia. And utopias throughout history tend to end badly. The world is far more unstable today than during the Cold War. The world scene is dynamic, not static. Plans based upon conditions of three to five years ago no longer match what we see around us. The Army War College has come up with an acronym to describe present world conditions. It is VUCA. Volatility. Uncertainty. Complexity. Ambiguity. That is a description which more accurately describes the world around us than the Cold War."
Russia and China are not America's "strategic partners," he emphasized. "Both the Russians and the Chinese tell us openly they are our enemies. We ought to believe them. Communist China openly threatens to 'nuke' our cities, has gained control over our security and trade lifeline via the Panama Canal, steals our scientific secrets, buys our government including the U.S. Congress and owns a large chunk of our debt -- all while adding to their ability to harm us."
"With former KGB head and new president, Vladimir Putin -- a strong, younger man the likes of whom the Russians haven't seen in charge for many decades -- we see more clearly that the KGB has been in control behind the scenes all along. Now that they apparently realize they have squeezed about as much money from the West as they are going to get, they have let us know what they have been doing all along.
They are continuing to develop and deploy new strategic and tactical nuclear weapons and are practicing war games over NATO airspace. Additionally, they have been continuing a massive biological warfare program, passing some of their technology and weapons to other enemies of America. They have also restored their strategic alliance with communist China."
Knight said that although the Russian army is a mess, Russia does not need a large conventional force to "scare the West to death." Rather, the Russians, in Knight's mind, only need a modern, effective nuclear and biological weapon capability.
"Yes, much of the Russian navy is tied-up at docks as rusting hulks. But, there is a very modern part of their submarine fleet which is fully capable of putting the nuclear fear into our so-called decision-makers," said Knight.
"The cold, hard and brutal fact is that our enemy situation is grim. The Middle East could explode. Radical Islam continues to grow in strength and hatred towards the U.S. The Clintons' enthusiasm in setting-up abortion clinics in Islamic countries via the United Nations Population Control Program is not helping matters any. The drug war continues to weaken our nations -- even while our banks launder trillions in drug money.
Knight also laments several other factors that he feels are preventing America from righting the ship.
"WE HAVE THE MOST VENAL, AVARICIOUS GOVERNMENT IN THE HISTORY OF OUR NATION. Our business community no longer considers itself to be American but, rather, global."
A "lack of military leadership" at the top of the U.S. armed forces command structure is another problem, he says.
"America's military leadership increasingly shows it lacks integrity, moral courage, wisdom and foresight. For example, the devastating effect of women in combat positions and aboard ships is becoming more apparent each day.
Yet, no active duty military leader is telling the Clinton office-holders the truth that our military is being ruined. We have lost our fighting-edge while acting as so-called 'peacekeepers.' It is high-time for America's military to regroup, restore, reform and return to protecting our nation's vital interests in this ever more dangerous world."
Speaking about the 20th century allies of the U.S. and Great Britain, Knight said, "The Afrikaners, Rhodesians, South Koreans, Karen of Burma, Hmong of Laos, Cossacks and Kurds all fought on our side at one time or another. I'm talking about World War I, World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Central America and Desert Storm. The U.S. has betrayed or is presently betraying all of them.
The rugged Afrikaners, Israelis and South Koreans have survived an onslaught of communism and Islamic jihad in their respective countries. America can't afford to betray her allies any longer."
Gen. Albion Knight believes America and the West can recover from its present lapse in character, military strength and morality if "courageous, principled leaders willing to tell the truth" can reclaim positions of power within America's culture and government.
"Both Reagan and Thatcher turned around the U.S. and the UK in the early 1980s. With the support of the American people, the "turn around" is practical and can be done -- but not without fierce opposition from powerful directions.
"Most actions are policy-related and not those requiring expenditure of a lot of money. In national security, those policy changes are based upon a firm commitment by the president to do everything possible to preserve and protect the United States as a free, independent and sovereign nation -- and that commitment extends over any other international commitment," said Knight.
"For the nation as a whole, we need to get the Big Nanny government off the back of the American people and out of our pocket. Our future presidents must show a willingness to live within the Constitution of the United States and the Congress will need the courage to fire him if he doesn't. Also, the president must understand he is obligated to God and not merely to man in regard to performing his duties."
Regarding the culture and youth of our nation, Knight sees the possibility of a new dawn and reawakening of traditional American values.
"We need a God-believing, committed and aware remnant. Our Founding Fathers led only a minority of Americans to gain our freedoms against almost impossible odds. The Holy Bible is filled with examples of what God can do with a faithful remnant. But, do we have such a remnant in America? I am convinced that we do.
Our Clinton-led government wants us to forget God.
We cannot let that happen. We have a lot of the American people who will not let that happen -- in spite of the courts, in spite of academia, in spite of some of the liberal churches and in spite of the entertainment world," said Knight. "So, the controlled media will not let the people know the facts? We now have the alternate media -- which is growing by leaps and bounds -- bringing the unfiltered truth, mostly through the Internet.
"Public education is dying and getting worse daily. But the home school movement is training leaders of tomorrow. Higher education? Yes, they are loaded with more Marxists than exist in Russia. But, they are pricing themselves out of the market. Many private schools are showing the way back to literacy -- which the teachers unions prevent in the public school system.
"So the mainline churches are dying? Let them die. But there are now millions of people in the land that are learning what the Word of God is telling them and are gaining strength, quietly, every day. Bible-teaching churches are growing. Bible study groups expand weekly.
This is releasing steady spiritual power of discernment and strength to the remnant of the American people."
In speaking about this remnant, Knight says, "Those of the American remnant have no voice. They have little money. They have heart, mind and soul. They have growing anger. I am speaking of 10 percent of the population. But we must remember that there was only a minority who supported and fought the American War of Independence -- about one third. But, they had the benefit of the intellectual elite on their side.
"The bottom-line of all of this is that there are a lot of potential fighters out there," he said." But, there is no public voice strong enough or wise enough or astute enough from a public relations point of view to raise the standard sufficiently high enough for others to see and follow. The conservative movement is still caught-up in its old way of doing things. It is hard for them to break out of the mold.
"God can use a few strong men and women who know who they are, whose they are, and what they ought to do. We must be prepared in case God finds use for us in His plan. So I am by no means throwing in the towel."
