The constitution might not matter to Obama, but getting the US military to potentially fire upon millions of revolting citizens is another scenario entirely. Even if there are “plan within plans” in place, I don’t think the progressives really understand the bloody blowback they’ll unleash upon themselves should they try this.
The military would be a hard sell for Obama for sure....that’s why he wants his civilian armed forces. The man is ripping this country apart...ON PURPOSE!
This is one of the reasons the whole mess with Lt Col Terry Lakin was so serious. Nobody in the leadership would even try to get answers for Lakin; they all collectively yawned. The military is off in foreign lands protecting us from the enemy and yet when the enemy grabs our heart with one fist and our lungs with the other, right here at home, the military yawns.
We recently had a military officer who testified to Congress that the White House pressured him to change his testimony in order to benefit Light Squared, a company that had contributed to the dems. So we know that the White House is willing to trash the honor and integrity of our military system. In that particular case, the officer was too honorable to put up with it, but it appears to me that Denise Lind was not so honorable and ruled - for all practical purposes - that it makes no difference to the lawfulness of combat orders if they are issued by someone not authorized by the War Powers Act and the US Contitution.
IOW, the leadership in the military does not inspire much confidence. And the rank-and-file are being told that is treason to not just do as they are told - REGARDLESS of whether what they are told to do complies with the laws of this land. So the only people who will NOT fire on fellow red-blooded Americans if the commie Obama tells them to are the ones who refuse to believe what they are told.
Interesting observation about the 10 governors and the executive order. Especially since one of those 10 suggested that elections be suspended, as you noted. I agree with Donofrio that it was a trial balloon. Some of us have been saying for a long time that this could be Obama’s strategy when he can’t hide his lawlessness any longer. The protests can easily turn to riots if Obama (or more likely his surrogates such as SEIU, Jimmy Hoffa Jr, Biden, etc) calls for them to get violent. And these protests surfaced - at a time when the only economic news was about rising unemployment, not about Wall Street corruption - right about the time when Solydra, Right On, and Fast & Furious were revealing just what traitorous enemies we have in positions of power in this administration.
We are in for some very interesting times, and I’m not feeling real good about which way the rank-and-file military will go, given the training and influence they’re getting under this leadership.
