The Story of PFC LaVena Johnson on The Rock Newman Show

Published on 11 Feb 2016
Many have heard about the efforts for justice in the case of Army PFC LaVena Johnson. In 2005 after only 6 weeks of her deployment in Iraq, PFC LaVena Johnson was found dead. The Army says suicide, but after close evaluation and discovering a plethora of discrepancies in the Army’s report, LaVena’s father Dr. John H. Johnson began the fight for justice for his daughter. On this episode of The Rock Newman Show our special guest are LaVena’s father, Dr. John H. Johnson and attorney Donald V. Watkins. We warn our viewers that this episode of The Rock Newman Show goes into deep detail concerning the evidence and death of PFC LaVena Johnson. Dr. John H. Johnson and Donald V. Watkins contend that by no means is this case a suicide, and say they even know the name of the culprit.

http://non-combat-death.org/SurnamesJ… http://www.marieclaire.com/world-repo… Shortly after midnight on July 19, 2005, a shift supervisor at a military cafeteria in Balad, Iraq, hears a loud bang that sounds like a car backfiring and races to the tent where it came from. He looks inside. Private First Class LaVena Johnson, 19, a vegan and an honor-roll student who once dreamed of going to film school in Los Angeles, is dead of a gunshot wound to the head. She is lying on a bed of rocky soil, with gashes on both sides of her mouth; her hair is tangled in the dirt. An M16 is lying on the ground beside her. A Bible, a package of M&Ms, and a pack of Marlboro Lights are also near her body. Today, more than three years later, LaVena’s parents, Dr. John and Linda Johnson, are still looking for answers. Who killed their daughter? Officials at the Army Criminal Investigation Command spent nine months on the case. They closed the investigation on April 28, 2006, ruling LaVena’s death a suicide. Her file is “inches thick,” says spokesman Chris Grey. “We stand by our investigation.” But LaVena’s father says the Army is lying–he thinks his daughter was murdered. She showed no signs of wanting to kill herself during the two months she spent in Iraq; two days before she died, LaVena told her father she was coming home in November to get the house ready for Christmas. “Don’t start decorating without me,” she said. Johnson isn’t the only one questioning the suicide ruling. Ann Wright, a retired Army colonel and former diplomat who has written about LaVena for the political website TruthOut, is among hundreds of people who have signed a petition (lavenajohnson.com) demanding that the Army reopen the investigation. “They need to get to the bottom of whether she was a suicide or murder victim,” Wright says. Meanwhile, at a hearing before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform in April 2007, Congressman William Lacy Clay Jr. (D–MO) said the Johnson family has been “met by a wall of disrespect, evasion, and a failure to provide them with the answers that the parents of any fallen soldier deserve.” Now, as a result of pressure from Congressman Clay and the Johnson family, officials “are looking into the case,” according to a House Armed Services Committee spokeswoman, to determine if they should pursue a formal investigation of the matter. 3

Over het legertje van Bernhard en de schietpartij op de Dam.

Gerard de Boer

Inleiding.

“Met zijn plannetje om roverhoofdman te spelen voorzie ik nog vele moeilijkheden”. Met deze zin karakteriseerde de minister van Oorlog Lidth de Jeude in augustus 1944 in Londen de door koningin Wilhelmina doorgedreven benoeming van prins Bernhard tot bevelhebber van de Nederlandse Binnenlandse Strijdkrachten (de BS). En de minister zou later gelijk krijgen. Door onvoldoende selectie konden allerlei figuren zich bij Bernhards legertje aansluiten. Zijn BS had namelijk een enorme werfkracht en iedere ‘goede vaderlander’ (dus geen leden van de NSB) was welkom. Onder hen waren zelfs zwarthandelaren, collaborateurs en bekeerde leden van de NSB, maar die – nu de geallieerden aan de winnende hand waren –  zich geroepen voelden om ook ‘in het verzet’ te gaan. Het aanmelden bij de BS was totaal geen probleem. Je moest bijvoorbeeld voor twee tafeltjes verschijnen. Aan het ene werd gevraagd of je een goed Nederlander was. Na het ‘ja’ kwam je…

US Troops in Europe to Outnumber all European Troops Combined

Banish Proxy Wars & False Flag Attacks, Nuclear Warfare and DU-Weaponry

“who is the aggressor? Is Russia building its bases near the USA to protect Cuba, Mexico, Venezuela and other countries?”

GR Editor’s Note

First published in April 2015, this article constitutes a “Russian perspective” on

the deployment of US-NATO troops in Eastern Europe. The US-NATO militarization of Eastern Europe directed against Russia has been ongoing for several years. The threat is real.

It should also be noted that US troops have been stationed in several Western European countries including Germany and Italy since the end of World War II.

(Michel Chossudovsky. GR Ed, May 4, 2018)

*     *     *

The Americans are planning the largest increase of their military presence in Eastern Europe since the Cold War. The Pentagon announced plans to deploy a tank brigade in Europe in February 2017. Why not immediately…

Address on Nuclear War to Ground Zero Center for Nonviolent Action

http://worldbeyondwar.org/

World Beyond War is a global nonviolent movement to end war and establish a just and sustainable peace.

We aim to create awareness of popular support for ending war and to further develop that support. We work to advance the idea of not just preventing any particular war but abolishing the entire institution.

We strive to replace a culture of war with one of peace in which nonviolent means of conflict resolution take the place of bloodshed.

While public opinion has moved against war, we intend to seize this moment to crystallize that opinion into a movement that spreads awareness that war can be ended, that its ending is hugely popular, that war should be ended as it endangers rather than protects — and harms rather than benefits — and that there are steps we can and must take to move toward war’s reduction and abolition.

War is not ending on its own. It is being confronted by popular resistance. But too often that resistance takes the form of denouncing one war as unacceptable (in contrast to theoretical good wars), or opposing a war because it leaves a military ill-prepared for other wars, or rejecting a weapon or a tactic as less proper than others, or opposing wasteful military spending in favor of greater efficiency (as if the entire enterprise were not an economic waste and a moral abomination). Our goal is to support steps away from war and to spread understanding of them as just that — steps in the direction of war’s elimination.

Peace is not free.  We need your support if we are to reach all of those who would like to be with us or who can be persuaded to stand with us.

We are building something truly international, connecting people and organizations, and adding support to antiwar endeavors of all kinds around the world. This is a global campaign of education, lobbying, and nonviolent direct action.

Here are quotes from some people involved.

Here are graphics with more quotes from people involved and voices of wisdom from the past.

“What I appreciate most about World Beyond War is that it does not ruminate on the pluses and minuses of each military intervention but takes a clear, principled, courageous and unequivocal stand that war is bad, period, and that our job as global citizens is stop all ongoing wars and prevent new ones. This breaks through the fog of ‘humanitarian interventions’ and ‘just wars’ to paint a vision of how we must evolve as a civilization if we are to survive, and that is, precisely, a world beyond war. Bravo!” —Medea Benjamin
