The Kool Aid Kings and Queens of the Pentagon

US Defense Watch

It seems nearly every day that the Pentagon is talking to the American people in double, triple and quadruple speak. The truth is a fugitive, on the run from numerous admirals, generals and cabinet members who distort reality and who are sucking down enough Kool Aid to fill Chesapeake Bay.

According to the Pentagon, the air war against ISIS is successful, combat in Iraq is non-combat, women can make it through Navy SEAL training and 50 Special Forces soldiers can retake Syria.

Who’s running the Pentagon now, Charlie Sheen?

Winning!

Without further ado, the Pentagon Kool Aid dramatis personae:

When Obama Leaves Office, the Military Will Be Smaller Than It Was Prior to 9/11

Family Security Matters

A “tiger mom” might go ballistic if her child came home with a “needs improvement” on his kindergarten report card. But most adults wouldn’t panic. They know there is time to get the kid up to standard before the deadline for that Harvard application falls due.

Defending America is different. A sub-par grade for military preparedness ought to be an immediate concern.

Today, despite our multibillion-dollar investment, America’s military is not all that great. That was the finding of a two-year research effort by a team of analysts at The Heritage Foundation.

“The Index of U.S. Military Strength” grades the armed forces. The ranking this year? Marginal.

Heritage is not alone. Every single service chief issued a similar warning this spring, when testifying at the annual readiness hearing before Congress.

For example, Army Chief of Staff Gen. Raymond T. Odierno declared the “Army cannot fulfill its role in the defense strategy” if all cuts required under the Budget Control Act of 2011 are fully implemented.

The other services raise red flags, as well. The Marine Corps, for instance, is running about two-thirds the number of battalions it has historically needed to meet day-to-day operational demands.

Indeed, by the time President Barack Obama leaves office, every branch of the U.S. military will be smaller than it was on 9/11.

Does that make sense? Is the world safer for America today than it was on Sept. 10, 2001?

When the U.S. military lacks the capacity and capabilities to protect all its vital interests, the country is worse off. It is just that simple.

Few dispute that today’s U.S. military is comparatively smaller and less capable to handle the missions assigned to the Pentagon-especially given the variety of active adversaries and competitors. But some argue that this is no big deal.

After all, they say, nobody really wants to fight World War III with the United States.

Obama’s Ignorance

CFP

From time to time I hear President Obama described as “an evil genius”, but he is neither. He’s not evil. He’s something much worse. He is a fool who thinks he’s a genius.

empty suit

This is not about his intelligence. No one gets to be President of the United States without some degree of intelligence. One suspects, however, Obama has always relied more on his charm and, initially, on the illusion of his charisma, based on his depiction by an adoring press.

His charisma has disappeared, even among the same press, but most abundantly among the American people of all political persuasions who now regard him as one recent poll put it, the worst President the nation has ever had.

Consider just a few of the ways his lack of judgment has reveal just how foolish he is. It began with foisting Obamacare on a nation deep in an economic crisis. He did this by telling lies about keeping one’s insurance or physician. It worsened as the website turned out to be a disaster and one easily hacked to get the personal information of those who signed on.

Retired General: Some in Military Want to ‘Take Out the President’

Government Executive

A former top general and current executive at the Family Research Council says members of the military have considered staging a coup d’état against president, but will not because of civilian control of the military.

“People I’ve spoken to would like to see the military ‘fulfill their constitutional duty and take out the president,’ ” retired Army Lt. Gen. William Boykin told World Net Daily, a website best known for pushing Obama “birther” conspiracy theories. “Our Constitution puts a civilian in charge of the military and as a result a coup would not be constitutional. You’re not going to see a coup in the military.”

“I talk to a lot of folks who don’t support where Obama is taking the military, but in the military they can’t say anything,” Boykin said.

Boykin, an evangelical Christian who is now the executive vice president of the Family Research Council, was publicly repudiated by President Bush twice in 2003 for saying Muslims worship an “idol” and not “a real God.” Last year, Boykin abruptly pulled out of appearing at a West Point ceremony after controversy erupted over the invitation. (Boykin has also said Islam “should not be protected under the First Amendment” and that there should be “no mosques in America” because “a mosque is an embassy for Islam and they recognize only a global caliphate.”)

Boykin said Obama has purged from the ranks officers who don’t support the president’s “political correctness.” The president’s agenda, including the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell” and allowing women to serve in combat, are making the military weaker, Boykin added.

Another former general, retired Army Maj. Gen. Patrick Brady, a recipient of the Medal of Honor, bemoaned toWND that today’s military is all “girly-men leadership [and] medals for not shooting and operating a computer.”

The Unraveling Treasonous Acts of President Barack Hussein Obama

GOP The Daily Dose

By Amy Elizabeth

It’s no secret of my hate for Obama. I’m certainly not politically correct but I do try not to use the word hate loosely. My destain for Obama has nothing to do with skin color. It’s his arrogance, lawlessness and what he has done to fundamentally change our country. However, it goes deeper than policy. Obama’s disrespect for the office he holds and his distaste for United States Military is appalling. President Reagan made Americans feel good, believed in peace through strength, and had so much respect for the Oval office he wouldn’t remove his suit jacket. Could you imagine President Reagan funding and negotiating with our enemy?

There’s no doubt the President Barack Hussein Obama’s a Muslim. He despises everything to do with Christianity and traditional America. When Obama said “America is no longer a Christian Nation.” he was simply stating his goal to infiltrate America with Islam. Obama has done everything possible to destroy American freedom and liberty.

Obama’s scandals are so rampant that they are hard to name in a single breath. The most destructive of all his scandals is the most recent trade he made with America’s enemy. The trade of five Taliban terrorist for an American Muslim sympathizer. Traitor Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl deserted his platoon at war time. Under the Uniform Code of Military justice article 85 a deserter who desserts his post at the time of war is punishable by death. Obama’s goal was to distract the American people from V.A. scandal and many others lurking in the background.

Inside the Ring: Memo outlines Obama’s plan to use the military against citizens

The Washington Times

Defense analysts say there has been a buildup of military units within non-security-related federal agencies, notably the creation of Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) teams. The buildup has raised questions about whether the Obama administration is undermining civil liberties under the guise of counterterrorism and counternarcotics efforts.

Other agencies with SWAT teams reportedly include the Department of Agriculture, the Railroad Retirement Board, the Tennessee Valley Authority, the Office of Personnel Management, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Education Department.

The militarization of federal agencies, under little-known statues that permit deputization of security officials, comes as the White House has launched verbal attacks on private citizens’ ownership of firearms despite the fact that most gun owners are law-abiding citizens.

A White House National Security Council spokeswoman declined to comment.
