The POS first said it to Senate Democrats on January 15, 2014.
William Hamilton, J.D. and Ph.D., is a nationally syndicated columnist, educated at the University of Oklahoma, the George Washington University, the U.S Naval War College, the University of Nebraska, and Harvard University. He served 20 years on active duty as an infantry officer, followed by two years of duty with the U.S. Air Force. Among the military awards he received are the Silver Star, Legion of Merit, Distinguished Flying Cross, Bronze Stars (4), and a Purple Heart.
In his essay of Jan. 27, 2014, “Constitutional Crisis: Which way the Military?,” Dr. Hamilton reflects on the increasing lawlessness of Barack Obama, and connects that lawlessness with the POS’s purge of military commanders — 200 in less than 5 years — who are replaced with, we presume, boot-licking yes-men.
As Obama, in his lawlessness, pushes the United States toward a Constitutional crisis, he’ll be counting on his yes-men in the military not to intervene.
Here’s an excerpt:
[Nat] Hentoff, the consummate left-winger, has just called for the impeachment of President Obama, saying that Mr. Obama is the most dangerous and destructive president ever and is far worse than Mr. Hentoff’s former target, President Richard Nixon.
Mr. Hentoff says Mr. Obama has thrown the U.S. Constitution under the bus and is ruling as a dictator. As evidence, Hentoff cites Mr. Obama’s delay of the employer mandate in ObamaCare, the changing of types of plans available under ObamaCare, ignoring our immigration laws, refusing to deport illegal immigrants, enacting stricter gun-control measures without Congressional legislation, sealing his presidential records, creating government offices and Czars without authorization, and changing the pay grades of selected federal employees without authority.
For work-a-day Americans, these burrs under Mr. Hentoff’s saddle might seem insignificant; however, one of conservatism’s leading voices, St. John’s University Professor M. Northrup Buechner, writing in Forbes Magazine on November 19, 2013, says Mr. Obama’s unlawful actions could lead to a troubling scenario: “A Republican Congress is elected and repeals ObamaCare over a Democrat President’s veto. The President refuses to enforce the repeal. The Supreme Court rules that the President’s refusal is unconstitutional. The President denounces the ruling and refuses to be bound by it.
“If the President persists in rejecting all authority other than his own, the Dénouement [outcome] would depend on the side taken by the Armed Forces…”
Writing in The Washington Times on November 12, 2013, Commander J.D. Gordon, USN (Ret.), a former Pentagon spokesman, says “…every week since President Obama took office, we’ve been hearing that another top leader has been summarily fired, despite decades of loyal service and valuable experience protecting the nation. Statistically speaking, it’s actually closer to one every 8.8 days, a staggering 200 military brass shown the door in less than five years.“
Thus, one wonders if this Stalin-like purge of generals and admirals is a precautionary step taken by Mr. Obama in advance of a descent into the darkness of a Constitutional crisis.
