Gold Star Dad Billy Vaughn: US Government is the Real Enemy

Published on: July 24, 2015

Gold Star father of fallen Navy SEAL Aaron Vaugh, Billy Vaughn, showed up at a rally in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida with Tom Trento of The United West and said that not only was Iran the enemy of America, but also the US government.

Taking the mic, Billy proclaimed, “Everything has been said that I can think of to say about Iran, but the thing is folks, we know who Iran is.”

However, he paused momentarily for effect and declared, “The enemy is the government. The enemy of the citizen is the government of the United States of America. That is where we are being betrayed.”

Vaughn is absolutely right and title his book about the downing of Extortion 17 appropriately Betrayed: The Shocking True Story of Extortion 17 as told by a Navy SEAL’s Father.

All the evidence that we know about concerning Extortion 17 points to a cover-up and betrayal of some of America’s finest by their own commander-in-chief. All of this evidence has been compiled in a book by former Navy JAG Lt. Commander Don Brown titled, Call Sign Extortion 17: The Shoot-Down of SEAL Team Six.

Vaughn went on to elaborate by pointing out that Iran, though a real enemy of the US, is a distraction from the domestic enemy we face in both Congress and the White House.

“Why does an enemy over there, threaten us so much… it is because our government will not defend its citizens… will not defend its military… will not defend its police officers,” he thundered. “Our government has been compromised so much, it can no longer act on behalf of the American citizen or its own military.”

“This is a government run by a president who despises the American way and is quick to speak about that time after time,” Vaughn continued. “It’s a government that time after time in Washington where the Supreme Court legislates from the bench.”

He went on to point out what he believes two of the greatest curses upon America are today:

  1. Abortion
  2. Attack on traditional marriage

He then launched into a tirade against the legislative branch for not doing their duty in putting a stop to legislation from the bench by the Supreme Court and went further by blasting them for unconstitutionally delegating their authority to the executive branch “so they don’t have to make that hard decisions.”

And then he added my favorite part. “It’s not just the Democrats. It’s not just the Marxist in the White House. It’s the Republicans on the red side too.”

“We are compromised,” he continued. “We are being deceived. We are being set up for a fall.”

“Iran is the enemy,” he added. “But the threat is inside our borders.”

He went on to blast Obama for being a deplorable commander-in-chief, one who fights a “half-butted war” with air campaigns, but has no desire for victory.

In fact, Vaughn went on to say that the only air campaign in history that has worked was the one that included Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

He openly stated that the reason for such drastic actions against Japan were because “American lives first… American lives matter.”

“We are better off when Mr. Obama is in Kenya,” he said. “We are better off when he’s in another country. American is better off when Congress is out of Washington, DC.”

Exactly right Mr. Vaughn. Personally, I’m ready to follow in the footsteps of Jefferson who penned:

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

May God grant us victory in the endeavor, because there is no doubt in my mind that this will not end peacefully.
