The disturbing pattern: Obama rids
America´s military of yet another
top general

It´s a developing pattern of this Obama White House. Barack Obama cashiered yet another battle-seasoned American general Tuesday, even as the war in Afghanistan continues along with numerous other serious global threats to United States security. This is the fourth senior officer Obama has forced from the country´s service. All four were tied somehow to the Afghanistan mess that Obama has long argued was the most important war. Each departure was staged as a resignation.

This is eerily similar to what Morsi of the Muslim bro did in Egypt.

Replacements are being asked if they would fire on American citizens - given the right circumstances of course.

Must concur with #4 and #5. Regarding #6, the rumor has been running around the internet, but I´d need to see something substantial to buy in to that one. I don´t think any military man would fire on his own countrymen.

The competent leader uses people smarter, stronger, or better at something then they.

A weak, incompetent leader fears them and sees them as threats.

Right on #6! Have come across several articles about purging the military of those who refuse to fire on American citizens. Obama is looking to convert those willing to take aim at us into his dream civilian force.

Let´s face it - Obama is one of the first presidents we have ever had who is worried about a military coup. And rightfully so, at least until he can purge the military of those still loyal to the constitution and replace them with those only loyal to him.

RE #7: Having spent 20 years in the military, I can believe that there ar officers that would order their men to fire on fellow Americns, and enlisted men that would obey those orders. Look at Kent State, or the bonus marchers back in the 1930s. The military oversaw the reloction of Japanese-Americans at the start of WWII. I also believe our Dear Leader wants a high command that will be compliant to his orders.

Brennan ran a separate security agency within the WH. If they were spying on Petraeus as head of the CIA, you have to be naive to think that they haddn´t used the best Google supplied intelligence gathering on each and every top military officer. Every email. every message, every site visited; nothing is secret unless a device completely out of the NSA knowledge loop was being used. You can be 100% sure someone is combing every email on the Pentagon system for key words and phrases.

You get the choice to work wth the thugs or get out.

Sooner or later this will turn and bite him. And yes there are Officers and Enlisted that will fire on us. Just remember when they do that they make themselves viable targets in return.
If you want to keep your Republic your gonna have to fight for it, because your enemies are coming to take it.

Obama is the most dangerous thing that this country faces right now. He is trying to put his cronies in place so that they will follow his orders to the "T". We are in trouble. the government isn´t buying up all of the ammo because they need it. They don´t want us to have any.

I´d say it´s exactly the same as what Morsi did, and for exactly the same reasons.

#2 and #19, it is also similar what the new islamist government of Turkey is doing to thier military, which, according to the Turkish constitution, is charged with keeping Turkey a secular state. One twist the Turk islamonazis have added is arresting the officers on trumped up charges after they resign.

Obama is expert at digging up moral dirt on his enemies. That is how he won a seat in the Illinois legislature and how he got his U.S. Senate seat.

The folks that are retiring will be the leaders called upon when the call to arms comes. we will have a civil war upon us in the near furture. The idiot in charge wants only those who will follow his orders. When the s**T hits the fan the which side will you be on, is all that really matters.

Inside the Bundy Ranch standoff:
The stakes go far beyond cattle
Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article

It was a tense standoff in rural Nevada with armed protesters closing I-15 for a while and facing off against even more heavily-armed federal agents. For now, that volatile Bundy Ranch confrontation has been defused. But it´s not over by any means. And we may well experience others that do not pause in non-violence. These are profound disputes illustrative of abiding suspicions among average Americans and their government headed by a man who promised to bring people together but didn´t. And it comes in an uncertain economic time when so many have given up big dreams just to keep what

Hate to break the news to you, but our old pal Archie Andrews is doomed. After 73 years of not looking a day over 17, the long-running all-American symbol of wholesomeness and teen goodness is set to die in July, according to Archie Comics. He´ll go out good, saving someone. Which is swell. But is this really necessary in a soiled age of cynicism, non-heroes and non-role models, lying leaders and downright criminals? It's already hard enough being a parent with all the unwholesome temptations at hand. Must we inevitably give up every enduring symbol of hope and good and fun for a one-month publicity splash?

GOP: Not just equal pay,

There was plenty of talk in Washington this week about equal pay. The thing is — it was just that: more talk. As a woman who worked at McDonald’s to get through college…. as the mom of two young daughters … and as the elected representative of thousands of hardworking women, I have always supported equal pay for equal work. And if a woman is being paid less than a man because of gender discrimination, that is both wrong and against the law. The protections provided to women and others in the Equal Pay Act must be enforced to make certain there is no pay disparity because of discrimination.

Hi, everybody. Earlier this week was Equal Pay Day. It marks the extra time the average woman has to work into a new year to earn what a man earned the year before. You see, the average woman who works full-time in America earns less than a man — even when she’s in the same profession and has the same education. That´s wrong. In 2014, it’s an embarrassment. Women deserve equal pay for equal work. This is an economic issue that affects all of us. Women make up about half our workforce. And more and more, they’re our families’ main breadwinners. So it’s good for everyone when women are paid fairly.

It was really just a matter of time until Kathleen Sebelius was looking up at the Obama bus passing over her bureaucratic body. On April Fool´s Day when President Obama attempted his ObamaCare victory lap with unsubstantiated enrollment numbers and failed to mention Sebelius even once, her fate was sealed.Obama is not known as Mr. Gratitude by anyone. But staring right at Sebelius in the front row of the Rose Garden and praising only Nancy Pelosi and Dick Durbin, of all people, for the trumped-up success of ObamaCare and not even mentioning his Health and Human Services secretary after five years of tough, loyal duty was

President Obama and wife Michelle are back on the road again, this time in Texas to harvest more Democrat dollars for the looming November midterm election. The previously-scheduled fundraising foray was tacked onto Obama´s memorial speech Wednesday at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas. Why let a nationally-televised shooting memorial go to waste when you can use such an official activity to cut the Democratic Party´s cost of political transportation on Air Force One for two fundraisers in Houston and another one today in Austin?

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no."

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
