Thanksgiving…made a national holiday by Abraham Lincoln in 1863, when during the Civil War he proclaimed a national day of “Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens.” Abraham Lincoln was a man of God…a true Commander-in-Chief of these United States…a man history has shown to have honored and respected the troops on both sides of the Mason-Dixon Line.
And as history has shown Lincoln’s greatness, history will show what we are seeing in the here and now in regards to Barack HUSSEIN Obama, his cronies, and their feelings towards America’s military…feelings so diametrically opposite from those of Lincoln…as in dishonoring them… defaming them…apologizing for them. And nowhere is that seen more than in the sequestration…the Obama built and owned sequestration…where America’s military budget was cut to the tune of $1.3 trillion over the next 10 years…where medical benefits were cut for those currently serving who come home maimed and NOT whole…with the monies cut being rubbed in the faces of our troops as those dollars are funneled into programs to give even more to the ‘sponges’ of our society to keep them loyal to Obama and the Democratic Party.
And to add to this disgrace, muslim sympathizing Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel believes military families need to sacrifice even more than they already have. In fact, Hagel had the audacity to tell those fighting to keep us safe and free at home that they and their families will soon be asked to ‘sacrifice’ on pay and benefits to preserve ‘readiness’ in an era of tighter budgets.
“Without serious attempts to achieve significant savings in this area, which consumes roughly half of the Department of Defense budget and is increasing every year, we risk becoming an unbalanced force,” Hagel said.
Hey Hagel here’s an idea…how about cutting the scandal plagued National Security Agency (NSA,) the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) with all its touchy-feely gropers, and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) the very ones stockpiling ammo to, as some believe, use on ‘We the People’ if we truly start to get out of line…cutting those and giving their monies to our military so they can be ‘balanced’ again…so our troops can be paid what they’re truly worth…can be paid their just due for risking their lives every day in defense of America and Americans…but I digress.
To preserve readiness…risking becoming an ‘unbalanced’ force…but pray tell how can our troops preserve readiness and how can they be anything but an ‘unbalanced’ force when they’re made to fight politically correct wars…made to fight with their hands tied behind their backs and at times with NO bullets allowed in their guns (echoes of Benghazi now rightfully coming back to haunt)…made to fight to ‘win the hearts and minds’ of the enemy instead of fighting to win as they were trained to do for heaven forbid any collateral damage is inflicted upon those out to kill them and us…inflicted on Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s muslim brethren.
And now with a number of senior commanding generals, officers, and admirals having been fired…and NOT for ’cause’…or ‘suddenly’ retiring years before they had planned to…it becomes quite obvious that Obama has started a purge of those high-ranked military commanders and officers who do NOT agree with him or tow the party line…while causing those still serving to walk on eggshells wondering who will be next on Obama’s chopping block.
And as retired U.S. Army Major General Paul Vallely, an outwardly vocal critic of Obama said, “the White House fails to take action or investigate its own, but finds it easy to fire military commanders who have given their lives for their country.”
“Obama will not purge a civilian or political appointee because they have bought into Obama’s ideology. The White House protects their own. That’s why they stalled on the investigation into fast and furious, Benghazi, and ObamaCare. He’s intentionally weakening and gutting our military, Pentagon, and reducing us as a superpower, and anyone in the ranks who disagrees or speaks out is being purged,” Vallely so correctly said.
And believe me, Vallely has put his neck and reputation on the line, so to speak, by publicly criticizing the most traitorous of Commander-in-Chiefs in our nation’s history. Calling for Obama’s resignation, along with Joe Biden’s resignation, and the resignation of a select group of congressional leaders, Vallely has issued a ‘national call to action’ (a grassroots movement throughout the country working towards finding ways to legally remove Barack HUSSEIN Obama and the others from office) to bring about those resignations on the grounds of among other things ignoring the ‘treaty clause’ in the Constitution and for destroying U.S. military superiority to the “advantage of our global enemies.”
In other words…on the grounds of treason.
Possible charges of treason against Obama are many…too many to list in a mere op-ed…but here are but a few starting with his decision to waive restrictions under a federal law that prohibits arming terrorists….as in arming the al-Qaeda backed Syrian rebels…as per Article 3, Section 3 of the Constitution…“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.” As in sending more than $20 million to terrorist group Hamas (claiming it was for Palestinian humanitarian relief)…as in sending F-16 fighter jets and Abrams tanks to Muslim Brotherhood puppet ex-President of Egypt Mohamed Morsi…the very same man who condoned the burning of Coptic Christian churches.
As in his treasonous statement, “U.S. forces are playing a constrained and supporting role in a multinational coalition, whose operations are both legitimated by and limited to the terms of a United Nations Security Council Resolution that authorizes the use of force solely to protect civilians and civilian populated areas under attack or threat of attack and to enforce a no-fly zone and an arms embargo,” Obama basically does away with the Constitution and makes America subservient to the U(seless) N(ations).
As in his ignoring the War Powers Clause in the Constitution when he got the US involved in Libya without Congressional approval (setting off the nefarious Arab Spring)…and including Benghazi…Benghazi where he knowingly and willingly left four Americans to be brutally murdered at the hands of his muslim brethren as he watched them die, and then jetted off to Vegas for yet another ‘it’s all about me’ photo-op fund raiser.
And on and on it goes…our military is hurting…our troops are hurting…and Barack HUSSEIN Obama smiles his best smirk of a smile as he’s off on yet another fundraiser with the party loyal.
So tomorrow on Thanksgiving Day as you give thanks to God Almighty for all the blessings he has bestowed upon you and yours, please say a prayer of thanks for our troops so far from home and their loved ones…our troops who are doing all they can to keep America safe and free, and doing so under a sham of a Commander-in-Chief who could care less about their mission…their safety…or their lives.
