A Veteran Comments on OCW


By Victor Trinidad


My name is Victor Trinidad and I am a retired Navy Chief Petty Officer who served his country for over 23 years.  I currently work as a Systems\Network Administrator overseas. I strongly support the Occupy Wall Street Movement and I only wish I could be with them protesting in my home city of New York.    

Although I am not with them on the street, I have done my very best to spread the word about the movement by e-mailing my friends and family and encouraging them to join the movement.   I have written comments in support of the movement on numerous blogs and I have sent letters to my Congressman, Senators and to President Obama.  I have also donated money for food, blankets and sleeping bags for those staying overnight at the occupation camps throughout the country.  I don’t just talk the talk, I also walk the walk.

What I would like to see achieved by the OWS Movement is for a restoration of our justice system which is at the root of the numerous problems we face today and is why we are protesting.


I strongly feel that President Obama should ask for Attorney General Eric Holder’s immediate resignation for failing to do his job these past three years.    He has failed to assign a special independent prosecutor, with subpoena powers, to fully investigate the horrific and murderous events of 9/11 and the cover-up that followed and prosecute all those who committed the crime of the century to the full extent of the law regardless who they are.  There is currently a mountain of evidence and thousands of witnesses that could prove, without a reasonable doubt, that 9/11 was an inside job, in any court of law.  Mr. Holder also failed to fully investigate and prosecute all those within the Bush Administration, including George W. Bush and DICK Cheney, for the numerous war crimes they committed, crimes they have confessed to via live TV interviews and the books they have written.  They violated most domestic and international laws and treaties, yet our Justice Department has done nothing about it or to them.

And, Mr. Holder has also failed to fully investigate and prosecute the banks and financial institutions in Wall Street, like Goldman Sachs, Lehman Brothers, AIG, J.P. Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, etc., for the fraud they have committed that resulted in the collapse of our economy, cost us millions of jobs, resulted in millions of foreclosures and has turned our world upside down.  If President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder had taken action on the above, regardless of whatever threat they might have gotten from the Israeli Lobby or the banksters, we would not be in this mess today.

Once we drain the swamp of all the filth that has contaminated and polluted our government and our justice system and has caused the slaughter of so many in America and throughout the world, then and only then could our country move forward toward getting real changes done, like re-enacting the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933, restoring Habeas Corpus, close down Guantanamo, immediate end to the war in Afghanistan, end all current U.S. covert operations, an immediate end to the Patriot Act, stop  the CIA from continuing to distribute heroin (from Afghanistan) to Russia and the streets within our country,  shutdown the Federal Reserve which is as Federal as Federal Express, immediately end voter suppression and, most importantly, take the money out of politics so our elected representatives are no longer bought and paid for by corporations and foreign interest, like Israel.   Our elected officials must represent us, we the people, not corporations and foreign interest.

While President Obama is crisscrossing the United States along with the circus clowns that make up the Republican Presidential Candidates for billions of dollars of campaign contributions so they could get elected/re-elected in order to continue to do nothing for us, we at OWS Movements, the 99%  throughout America,  hold the votes and they will be held until something is done to address our demands.

So in closing, I just want to express how overjoyed and proud I am to be an American knowing that my fellow brothers and sisters, the 99%, are finally waking up to what our government and big business has been doing to us and that we are finally standing up for our rights.

Being from New York City, I realize it is going to get extremely cold out there, especially in that Battery Park area of New York, but I encourage you to stand strong and steadfast in our determination to get our demands met.  Just think what our founding father, George Washington had to endure when he fought in Valley Forge and when he had to cross the Delaware.  Many of his soldiers died of frost bite because of the extreme cold temperatures, but it ended in Victory and that is why we are able to do what we are doing at Zuccoti Park and throughout America.

So hang in there and don’t allow any police brutality or lie broadcasting news outlets, like Fox or CNN, get in your way.  I wholeheartedly appreciate everything you are doing.  I got your back.
