Beck: Obama deliberately delegitimizing the US military
Glenn Beck Show | 11/15/12

Posted on 11/15/2012 8:19:18 AM PST by pabianice

Beck on radio this morning. He claims that the scandalizing of four top flag officers in the past several weeks is just the first step by Obama in destroying the credibility and legitimacy of the US military. Predicts and ever increasing number of firings and resignations so that when he guts the military budget the voters will say, "They had it coming."

Interesting take. The Dems plan years ahead; the Repubs get taken by surprise every time.

I’d like to point out that this is precisely how the Islamists got back control of Turkey from the secular, pro-Western, mostly Israel-friendly military: Slander and show trials.

The republicans are the sleeping giant that never awakens, and while it sleeps, it’s entire world is stolen from it, but it doesn’t matter at all, because it will never awaken.

I’d say the top flag officers are doing a pretty effective job of scandalizing themselves.

I agree. Nobody forced them to have these affairs or lie about Benghazi. Whatever happened to honor?

Retired admiral James Lyons has been on TV talking about the failure of this administration at Benghazi. He is still asking why nothing was done to help those people - including buzzing the crowd with jet flyovers to disperse them and buy time. He said that the military command has been politicized since the passage of Goldwater-Nichols when Reagan was president. We don’t have the same caliber of leaders in the military that we once had.

Of course he is. He is here to destroy America: half of America is too stupid to realize it.

My take on the primary motivation is slightly different. Obama would love a completely politicized military and CIA. Key people are being replaced with loyalists, and others are cowed by events.

What the author suggests may be a byproduct, rather than the primary thrust.

The dems have been showing their scorn for the military for years.
Suppressing military votes.
Making the military a social experiment.
Changing standards to accomodate non-performers.
etc.

One of King Obama’s objectives is to destroy the military. He is a firm believer that to reduce it to a point where its leadership is part of his communists empire and will quell any resistance to his plan of dictatorship.

I told my husband last night the reason we were seeing so many demotions of military personnel and firings was because obama wants the American people to be ok with slashing their budget.
Having said that, ever since obama came on the national scene, my husband has said he wanted to take the military budget and use it to fund his gimmie programs and to make us weaker in the event of another muslim attack.

Has to happen, the military is the only thing that stands between liberty and the complete islamization of our culture.

I pray for them - God grant the strength and wisdom to know what it means to protect the Constitution of the United States from all enemies foreign and domestic and to insure the liberty of the people. Amen

I had this exact same thought. The general who was demoted/kicked out because of “excessive spending.”? Really? A confrontation between The Regime and the US military could be brewing.

“Interesting take. The Dems plan years ahead; the Repubs get taken by surprise every time.”

Unlike the Democrats, most Republicans in political office and at the RNC headquarters are not committed to core values or a guiding philosophy. They are pragmatists who support big business, crony capitalism, and globalism. They give lip service to political conservatives in order to secure votes but feel no affinity for the American people nor are they concerned with the future of the country other than securing their own positions at the government trough.

I’ve come to the conclusion the Republican leadership is not surprised by the actions of the Democrats. They have become willing accomplices. The Democrats require a foil to create the impression there really is a contest between two parties and provide theater to distract the American people from what they are really doing. The Republican establishment has willingly signed on to playing the “bad guy” role in this farce into order to share in the spoils. We will see this play out again in the budget negotiations where Boehner and McConnell will make noises about fiscal responsibility so the Democrats can beat them up for protecting the rich and wanting to make the poor starve. When we reach the point of crisis defined by the Democrats and the media, the Republicans will cave, the Dems will get credit for saving the poor, and everyone in Washington will go back to the party circuit until the next crisis or election.

If Boehner was truly serious he’d be pointing out the fact that Obama is running away to Asia next week instead of staying in town and engaging in serious negotiations over the fiscal cliff. Obama has no intention of engaging in real negotiations, he has already given his class warfare speeches and will now go into hiding, letting Pelosi and Reid continue the pontificating until we get to the edge of the cliff. Then Obama will magically reappear on the scene to insist on compromise by the Republicans in order to save the country. Boehner and McConnell will comply and Obama will have another victory. The drama will have been played out in the media for the entertainment of the masses who can then return to watching “Dancing with the Stars” and the Superbowl.

We conservatives continue to enable this farce by buying into the notion we must support the RINO’s to save the country. We are like the battered spouse who keeps getting her teeth kicked in and then returns home after a few weeks from the shelter for another round. Likely we’ll see this game played again in 2014 and 2016 because we the people seem unable and unwilling to form a viable alternative political movement.

Unfortunately for the Republican elites, this time around the Democrats are putting in place the infrastructure for a dictatorship. With the Patriot Act, Obamacare, Dodd Frank, and decades of environmental regulations they have corrupted the government bureaucracy (Justice, State, Homeland Security, EPA, Treasury, and HHS) and set in place the legal structure for the President to assume dictatorial powers in a “crisis”. Now they are purging the military and CIA to make the military compliant when the time for a coup occurs.

No doubt when Iran sets a dirty bomb or actual nuclear bomb off in a major city, or we have another major financial collapse, the legal ground work will be in place to justify a suspension of the Constitution and elections for the duration of a crisis. After 2-3 years of dictatorship the states will be compelled to petition for a Constitutional Convention at which members of the leftist elite chosen by the president, will write a modern document to replace that obsolete piece of paper written by 18th century slaveowners.

It happened in Russia, it happened in Germany, it happened in Cuba, it happened in Venezuela and it is coming to America. When it does, Mr. Boehner and Mr. McConnell, as well as the Bush family, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and the rest of the RINO establishment will learn the real facts of life as they disappear to the indoctrination camps or worse. Likely they will be surprised, but I won’t.

Either that, or they are also tghe bad guys and were just pretending all along.

Honestly, I do not see how anyone who claims that they are a professional politician, or professional anything for that matter, could be as stupid and ineffective as the GOP.

They accomplish nothing, they understand nothing, their only function appears to be to give the democrats more than what they want every single time.

Three and Four star promotions are by the President. Do you really expect the people appointed by the current occupier of the white house to be honorable? He can use and abuse them at will.

All I can say is this: to most Americans, all that matters is that they have their sufficient treats and toys, and yes, even handouts. Plenty of people, beyond these things, don’t care at all for what goes on outside of their house, or even living room, for that matter.

I know what it takes. IMHO I could never have believed that so many dumb Americans could put this clown back in the WH for the longest eight years of the worst President in my 70 year lifetime. I would not say it cannot happen...........we have just witnessed something that by all logic should not have happened.

Beck has been one of the best Paul Reveres to date.

Ignore him all you want to, but you won't be able to ignore the events he's warning us about and hopefully away from. You and the rest of us will be swept away by them.

History is very clear about how this game ends. As Beck says, don't believe him, DO YOU OWN RESEARCH!!!

So, DO IT! Americans. Trust, don't trust, I don't care, but VERIFY!!!

Criticize the man all you want to, I don't care, but check his work.

Beck is not lying about what's going on. The media is. The government is. And, the sycophants are repeating those lies.

Check it out for yourself. Your life may very well depend upon what you find out. Your way of life definitely will.

Exactly, many of them can live with any system as long as the money rolls in and they retain their little sphere of authority.

In spite of the lip service Romney gave I really doubt he would blink if the 2nd amendment vanished, along with other basic individual rights.

He “won” because of massive voter fraud. There have been and are an increasing number of articles on FR about the incredible fraud in many states. Massive, huge, had to be coordinated.

I know that.

I have been a registered Republican since 1962. BUT I re-registered as an Independent in 2006 after Bush refused to stand up and defend even a single policy he had put in place while the lefties beat him to a pulp in the lame stream media on a daily basis and wrote books on how to assassinate him. That was the year Piglosi became the historic Speaker and the RATS took over the Senate (with help from Ind). I have cast my last ballot for a Federal official, while I will still support local Republicans. All my mailings from the GOP go directly to the trash - they need to go the way of the Whigs, and a new Tea Party needs to emerge triumphant.
