Obama’s Personal Military

November 2, 2013

The Obamacare failure is becoming obvious even to some hardcore, progressive liberals but it isn’t nearly as dangerous to the country as the purging of the military that Obama has been conducting. His “transforming” of the military to fit his personal vision is in full swing.

The far left has always despised the military but its despicable treatment of soldiers during the Vietnam era forced a pretense of respect. Liberal leaders with distaste for the military never hesitate to use military force when it suits their agenda, but the military’s very existence is always an embarrassment to them. President Obama is no exception, but his arrogance is exceptional and he is taking action.

There are reports that 197 military officers have been “purged”, in the past five years. Nine senior commanding generals have been purged this year, alone, by Obama, three being linked to the Benghazi fiasco. Two-star general Michael Carey who was overseeing the U.S. arsenal of intercontinental missiles is the latest one to be removed for “misbehavior” that has not been defined. Daring to disagree with Obama is the common link and anyone who takes exception to the “transformation” of the military that is taking place is a target.

This transformation has nothing to do with military readiness or capability. It is a forcing of Obama’s social agenda onto the military and an intentional weakening of the military in order to reduce this country’s standing as a superpower, just as his foreign policies have done. Gay issues, women issues, religious issues, and other social issues mirroring Obama’s personal agenda have become the focus of the military, and personnel all through the ranks are disillusioned and disgusted – and leaving.

Some believe Obama’s goal is to have a personal military doing his bidding against opposing citizens in this country, such as the Tea Party. It has even been rumored that “the Obama administration’s ‘litmus test’ for new military leaders is whether or not they will obey an order to fire on U.S. citizens”. Speculation abounds but it is the outcome that matters and that is proving to be a demoralized, underfunded, ineffective military.

The failure of Obamacare pales in comparison to this. We need to stop the bleeding and the only way to do that is by voting.

“Phony” Scandals Panicking Phony President

July 25, 2013

President Obama “pivoted” from issues that are drowning his administration to smoke and mirror obfuscation or, in other words, to his sweet spot. In an overly-long speech meant to shift focus away from his failing administration, Obama repeated stale economic “hope and change” rhetoric that has no bearing on reality of or the muck of his administration.

Dismissing the chaos swirling around his administration as “phony scandals”, Obama is relying on unconditional support from blind admirers to keep him above the fray, but he is mired much too deeply in the morass. The only phony thing here is his presidency, and even some of his supporters are starting to realize it.

Obama was a phony presidential candidate in 2008, having little or no experience in anything that qualified him for the top job. His rhetoric and promises turned out to be phony and his policies have been driven by personal ideologies. Obamacare, his piece de resistance, was rashly pushed through Congress to gain a political success, camouflaged by a phony concern for the uninsured.

His foreign policies have been idealistic, naive, and amateurish, sneered upon by both allies and enemies who understood right from the start that he was out of his league. His phony diplomacy has been transparent and his inability to make decisions has lowered respect for the US around the world.

His flip-flopping on the Defense of Marriage Act over the years indicates that his present backing of gay marriage is phony. He has shown to be swayed by the political wind, not his conscience. Even his attendance at Columbia University is being questioned and his “superior intelligence” has yet to reveal itself.

It is an insult for this president to dismiss legitimate concerns about the IRS, NSA, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Snowden, Obamacare costs, HHS Secretary Sebelius, Holder’s Justice Department, Solyndra, and much, much more as “phony” scandals. One can only hope that voters will remember this insult at the voting booth and begin the recovery we desperately need.

The Keystone Cop Obama Administration

October 3, 2012

There are so many contradictions, missteps, and outright errors occurring in the Obama administration that the infamous Keystone Cops are in danger of losing their place in American culture as the epitome of ineptness. Unfortunately, the Keystone Cops were fictional and the Obama administration is real.

One need only listen to Vice president Biden speak for more than two minutes to get a taste of the clown side of this administration. Biden’s latest gaffe, asserting that the middle class has been buried for the last four years, directly goes against Obama’s ‘blame-Bush’ message on the economy he claims to have saved. Biden inadvertently spoke the truth but will surely be taken to the woodshed because of it.

Listening to Obama’s press secretary, “Baghdad Bob” Jay Carney, rationalizing the irrational policies and actions of the administration has also been very clownish. One can almost feel sorry for Carney as he tries to spit in your ear and tell you it’s raining – almost. It usually just ends up being an insult to one’s intelligence.

Speaking of the economy, another comedy skit from this bumbling administration has Obama aide Stephanie Cutter denying they are blaming Bush while at the same time campaign adviser Robert Gibbs is blaming Bush. It seems it’s not only Biden who is confused.

The administration’s mishandling of the attacks in Libya are Keystone Cop antics displaying incompetence dangerous to our nation’s security. Furthermore, the ensuing cover-up proves that re-election is, and has been, the top priority for Obama. Admitting terrorism contradicts his boasting of beating terrorists; therefore, he blames a video.

One can only hope that at this time next year we will be repairing the damage and be able to look back with laughter at the punch lines from this administration, such as: “Solyndra green jobs”, “You can keep the coverage you have”, “Government Motors”, “You didn’t build that yourself”, “The private sector is doing fine”, “Post-racial era”, “Fast and Furious”, “Fair share”, and so many more.

If, however, this comedy show is renewed for another season, there will be little laughter and there will be little hope. We will have to resort to old Keystone Cop movies if we will want to laugh about incompetence, though they will seem like amateurs in comparison.

Uh-Oh. Looks Like the White House Knew about Fast & Furious

July 27, 2011

Oh, boy. The Weekly Standard is reporting that the White House knew about the gun-running fiasco Fast & Furious as early as September 2010.

Things are getting more and more interesting. Could the administration be running around about the debt ceiling to keep the attention off of this major problem for them?

Here’s a link to the Weekly Standard story: Bombshell: White House Knew About ATF Gunrunning Scandal

Update: Here’s Heritage Foundation info about Fast and Furious: Former ATF Official Admits Bureau Allowed Guns into Mexico

It’s About Time

July 27, 2011

Uh, Oh. The administration is in trouble now.

CBS Evening News has turned it’s attention to “Fast and Furious,” the administration’s super sneaky plan to allow gun runners to get guns into Mexico so that the administration could prove how dangerous our gun laws are.

It seems to me it proves how dangerous this administration is, but whatever.

Anyway, after weeks of investigation by Darrell Issa and his Congressional Oversight Committee, CBS has finally caught on.

Look out. After years of looking the other way, the main stream media is going to attempt to do its job.

See the CBS story here.
