Liberals saw fit to choose as Commander in Chief of the US Armed Forces a left-wing community organizer whose only qualifications were his politically correct black skin and Muslim name. Let’s see how it is working out from the point of view of those he commands:
A stunning number of retired U.S. military leaders were not surprised when Barack Obama announced that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel would be stepping down from his Obama cabinet last week. The announcement confirmed their expectations that the president’s distrust of the military has caused him to go to the “extreme levels of micromanaging from the White House,” said one Army general on Saturday, now retired in Texas, who wishes to remain anonymous.
“Obama has shown his stripes and is dangerously suspicious of the Pentagon,” revealed the general, who keeps close ties with current and former military leaders nationally. “Most of my colleagues are just hoping all the damage being planned is not completed before his time runs out on his term.”
“It’s not just the army,” noted the general. “All branches are worried because Obama, when he finally makes up his mind about something, gets his advice from Gen. (Martin) Dempsey (Joints Chiefs of Staff Chairman), Susan Rice, John Kerry and Denis McDonough.”
No, you read the title right but it took me a while to post this one because I was laughing so hard.
He really thinks people believe this BS?
Each organizer will be armed with state of the art sternly worded letter technology.

… “What we’ve got to do is make sure that we are organizing the Arab world, the Middle East, the Muslim world along with the international community to isolate this cancer,” he said.
Obama added that the “particular brand” of extremism was “first and foremost destructive to the Muslim world,” by killing innocent citizens and damaging their economies.
“They are falling behind because of this very small and narrow, but very dangerous segment of the population and we’ve got to combat it in a sustained effective way, and I’m confident that we’re going to do that,” he said.
It’s been well over 100 days since U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi accidentally drove across the border into Mexico with legally registered weapons and was detained by Mexican authorities.
Tahmooressi has made several pleas to Barack Obama to take action to get him out of prison, or to at least expedite due process and move up his trial, but has received nothing from the White House.
Many conservatives and members of Congress have been speaking out against Barack Obama’s downsizing of the military, fearing that it could possibly make the U.S. too weak to protect the country from global threats.
Liberals, of course, reacted with name calling, a typical strategy employed by those who have no facts or evidence to win people over to their way of thinking through logical, thoughtful, and civil discourse.
Progressives have called those in favor of a strong military “war mongers” or “war hawks,” failing to see the bigger picture, which is the fact that threats to national security are growing in scope and sophistication.
Now, thanks to a report from the National Defense Panel, conservatives can feel vindicated in their claims, as the panel concluded that Obama is in fact weakening the military, and this leaves America vulnerable.
Obama loves the troops.
The Obama administration will force out 550 Army majors in the coming weeks.
Stars and Stripes reported:
About 550 Army majors, including some serving in Afghanistan, will soon be told they have to leave the service by next spring as part of a budget-driven downsizing of the service.
Gen. John Campbell, the vice chief of the Army, acknowledged Friday that telling troops in a war zone that they’re out of a job is a difficult task. But he said some of the soldiers could join the National Guard or the Army Reserve.
The decision to cut Army majors comes on the heels of a move to slash nearly 1,200 captains from the ranks. Army leaders were criticized at the time for giving 48 of them the bad news while they were deployed to Afghanistan.
The Army declined to say how many majors will be notified while they are at the battlefront.
“The ones that are deployed are certainly the hardest,” Campbell told reporters. “What we try to do there is, working through the chain of command, minimize the impact to that unit and then maximize the time to provide to that officer to come back and do the proper transition, to take care of himself or herself, and the family.”
In July the Obama administration forced out 1,100 Army captains, many still serving in Afghanistan.
Shockingly, Governor Bill Haslam isn’t thrilled.

Imagine you’re about to sit down for supper when suddenly 760 folks show up on your front porch wanting fried catfish and hushpuppies. You’d be fit to be tied as they say in Tennessee.
And Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam is fit to be tied.
The Obama administration recently released 760 illegal immigrant children to sponsors in the Volunteer State without any warning, the governor charged.
There was not so much as a text message or tweet.
“It is unacceptable that we became aware via a posting on the HHS website that 760 unaccompanied children have been released by the Office of Refugee Resettlement to sponsors in Tennessee without my administration’s knowledge,” the governor wrote in a strongly-worded letter to President Obama.
Haslam, a Republican, said he still has not been contacted by the Obama administration – and has no idea where the illegals were resettled.
