Eddie Pirkowski on Homeland Security

 

 


Cutting edge defensive and offensive security

Q: Under what circumstances should America go to war?

A: Follow constitutional, congressional and presidential mandates to ensure lifetime safety and security for all the families of Hawaii and this nation with both cutting edge defensive and offensive security.

Q: What is your view of the role of the U.S. military in the islands, and would you like to see that role increased or decreased?

A: The Pacific Command and all the Armed Forces of the U.S. are vital to the integrity of both the defense and the offense of this nation. We seek peace through strength, trust and reliability, and we must always keep our word, for in the end, it is all we all really have. It is in this spirit with our whole hearts and souls, we support all the armed forces, allies, and their families. In this time of fast-paced technological development, we must lead as never before (e.g. hypersonic weapons, AI, defensive asset, state and nation shields).

Follow the Constitution even with regards to terrorism

Q: The 2012 NDAA removed the right to a trial if a person is accused of terrorism. Do you view this legislation as a reduction in civil liberties, or a necessary move to quell terrorism within the US?

A: Yes, emergency situation; follow constitution.

Q: The Federal Grounds Improvement Act made it a felony to protest anywhere near a national security event. What is your position on this legislation?

A: No emergency situation; follow Constitution, and right to free speech.
