5 U.S. generals in trouble
rock military culture

Associated Press, by Lolita C. Baldor and Robert Burns

Original Article

Posted By:vastrightwingconspirator, 11/18/2012 5:12:37 AM

When Defense Secretary Leon Panetta pointedly warned young troops last spring to mind their ways, he may have been lecturing the wrong audience. The culture of military misconduct starts at the top. At least five current and former U.S. generals at the rank of one-star or higher have been reprimanded or investigated for possible misconduct in the past two weeks -- a startling run of embarrassment for a military whose stock among Americans rose so high during a decade of war that its leaders seemed almost untouchable. From adultery and malfeasance to potentially inappropriate emails, the four-star foibles

I´ve lost some respect for the military,not because of this gossip crap,because they´ve knuckled under to the left.

FTA: "The culture of military misconduct starts at the top."

The "top" would be zippy. Perhaps Lolita and Bobby should be insisting that HE should be held accountable for HIS foibles, not to mention his crimes.

It´s always a disappointment to learn that our admired leaders break rules with immunity. We also see this protective buddy system in all three branches of our government .... Executive, Legislative and Judicial. So, to learn that generals ignore the rules which apply to everyone else comes as no surprise.
.... That public accusations have become prevalent at this time, however, is very telling, since we had already begun to suspect this administration was taking steps to impugn the reputation of our soldiers and diminish the strength of our Armed Forces.

We should never doubt the strength and power of cornered villains.

The article states that Obama has been "shocked" by the officers misconduct. Sure he is.
I would guess that he is not "shocked" at all but ever so pleased to be decapitating the military command structure.
The military is still a threat to him because they are patriotic Americans.

And we believe every single word AP and the other media put out.

I thought that (a) Americans were considered innocent until proven guilty and that (b) we didn´t trust anything fed to us by the MSM.

If I were going to do a total Alinsky on our country, one of the first things I´d go after would be the establishment military leaders so that there´d never be any chance of a coup. Once replaced with my own picks, I´d feel a whole lot safer to proceed with the rest of my revolution.

To become a general is to pass through an ethical portal into a realm of politics and lobbyists. All morals, ethics and principles are checked at the door.

My concern with all this is why now? This nonsense has been going on for decades. Yet five generals are all of a sudden in trouble? The timing stinks like rotten fish.

This is not being done to the benefit of the military. I believe the deck chairs are being rearranged for a purpose which will prove in the near future to be very bad for this country and its citizens.

Sarah Palin: We show what happened, back in 2008, I believe that´s when it started, when the media decided to just go along to get along with Obama, ingratiating themselves with him and vice versa. What we saw was these attempts to destroy these whistleblowers, those who were telling the truth, even in the campaign. (Snip) In the campaign, Greta, this is important for Americans to understand. I was not allowed to talk about things like that because those elitists, those who are the brainiacs in the GOP machine running John McCain´s campaign at the time said that the media

Sarah Palin joined Greta Van Susteren on Friday night to slam President Obama for the comment during his big economic speech that Washington’s too obsessed with “phony scandals.” Palin wanted to know exactly which scandals the president was referring to as “phony,” and held up a “redneck version” of Karl Rove‘s classic white boards to remind viewers of all the scandals currently plaguing Obama, from Benghazi to NSA snooping, asking in disbelief if he’s really dismissing all of them as “phony.”(Snip) She told Van Susteren she was “banned” from talking about Wright and Bill Ayers because the Republican “elitists”

Mark Levin: You know, ladies and gentlemen, I hate to say this, but it´s right in front of our faces. Obviously, John Boehner does not want to get to the bottom of what took place in Benghazi. It´s obvious. He´s been asked over and over again by a majority of the Republicans in the House to set up a special investigative committee as is the tradition in these types of investigations. So you concentrate expertise and resources and time in one special committee rather than multiple committees that are also investigating

South Carolina’s fledgling William Wallace Caucus might suggest a prototype. She might need a council of advisers (“elders”) like John Brown’s Secret Committee of Six, which included Yankee crusader Theodore Parker and the husband of Julia Ward Howe (author of "Battle Hymn of the Republic"). Others to include: obviously her husband, Todd; and Franklin Graham, Christian evangelist; Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback and maybe the venerable Judge Andrew Napolitano. She also needs a major celebratory event (think Woodstock for American revolutionaries) — I’d suggested a Tea Party Congress

In a recent stand-up performance, Bill Maher made a crack about Trig Palin, Sarah Palin’s special needs child. He got heard—first by a conservative writer, and then by Sarah Palin herself. Ron Futrell, a former sportscaster and contributor for Breitbart, says Maher referred to Palin’s youngest child Trig as “retarded.” Futrell has a special needs child himself, and has interviewed Palin in the past about their shared challenges. He was appalled, not only at Maher’s word choice, but the audience’s uproarious reaction. Futrell later began heckling the comic over a Halliburton reference:

Sarah Palin said Friday that the elite media would never let a Republican president get away with what Barack Obama has done in his push for new gun laws. The former Alaska governor recalled that the national press “tore apart” George W. Bush for using “fleeting images” from Sept. 11, 2001, during his 2004 reelection campaign. At the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting, Palin slammed Obama for flying the grieving parents of the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Air Force One and then “making them backdrops” at rallies. “That same media is now the reliable poodle-skirted cheerleader

The Pentagon has released a statement confirming that soldiers could be prosecuted for promoting their faith: "Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense...Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis...”. The statement, released to Fox News, follows a Breitbart News report on Obama administration Pentagon appointees meeting with anti-Christian extremist Mikey Weinstein to develop court-martial procedures to punish Christians in the military who express or share their faith.(From our earlier report: Weinstein is the head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, and says Christians--including chaplains--sharing the gospel

To say that Sarah Palin shook things up by taking to Twitter to express her displeasure at the nonchalant nose-rubbing going on at the White House Correspondent´s Dinner Saturday night would be an understatement. It doesn´t matter who you are. If you watched the White House Correspondent´s Dinner and simultaneously possessed one shred of passion for the future of our country with regards to crony capitalism and corruption, it´s pretty easy to determine the overwhelming consensus of the event. The media is supposed to exist to hold these people accountable. Instead, they choose to play

The surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings should not be treated as an enemy combatant, Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said Sunday morning. “I do not believe under the military commission law that he is eligible for that. It would be unconstitutional to do that,” Feinstein said on “Fox News Sunday.” Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the sole surviving suspect in last Monday’s bombings, was taken into custody Friday. Federal officials said they plan to use a public safety exception to delay reading Tsarnaev his "Miranda" rights.

Mainstream media publications immediately exploited the passing of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher on Monday to again advance their political agendas by falsely smearing former Alaska Gov. and Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin. In a rush to write whatever they could to tarnish both, outlets like Politico and the Washington Post resorted to "reporting" on a fictitious story and an imaginary trip that have already been debunked years ago. The Post, a publication known for its liberal agenda, immediately "re-upped" the debunked story about Thatcher having snubbed Palin when Chris Cillizza,

"She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State.

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,

Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.

Serial sexter Anthony Weiner’s wife partly blamed herself last year when her horndog husband confessed to her that he was at it again. Friends and family told People magazine that Huma Abedin was kicking herself at the time for bailing out of couples counseling and focusing more on their newborn baby boy. But, thanks to a new round of joint therapy that continues even now, the couple was able to put the relapse behind them. “They really became a unit, and she feels much closer to Anthony now,” a relative told the magazine.
