Seal Commander Says Special Operations Assault On Obama Has Begun!

Liberty Digest Last week saw US Military Special Forces be raised to the forefront of the political picture. Retired Navy Seal Commander Ryan Zinke stepped up and says that the Special Operations Assault on President Obama has just begun.

Last week it seemed like your typical week in the saga of President Obama accusing Republicans of unfairly criticizing him over the Benghazi situation and leaked classified information. Trouble is, it wasn’t the pesky Republicans he should have been blaming for the attack on his presidency. It is not an unfair assessment either, considering the sources.

Ryan Zinke is a retired Navy Seal Commander. He wasn’t the commander of just any Seal Team, he was the commander of Seal Team Six. He is now a Montana State Senator and has launched his own personal finances at starting the new Super Pac, Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund Inc. Along with the now fired Generals that say they are watching President Obama, his new organization is doing more than saying that President Obama leaked National Security information and unfairly took credit for killing Osama Bin Laden, they intend to prove it.

In a fired up interview with Politicker, Mr. Zinke spoke rather candidly about the feelings of many former military and Special Operations members.

“There’s a number of groups out there. I think what it demonstrates is, there’s a lot of anger, there’s a lot of concern among the former military community.”~Ryan Zinke

He stated that a lot of the anger stemmed from a lot of White House leaks of classified information that got people killed and a television add by former President William J. Clinton that questioned if Mitt Romney would have made the call to get Bin Laden. He said it has snow balled from there.

Here is the add he said started a lot of military anger back in 2012.

“I think there is huge concern that the administration is using and continues to leak class documents for less than–well, for political gain,” said Mr. Zinke. “I think when the commercial came out with President Clinton and President Obama, and they talked about the political ramifications of failure, they didn’t talk about the families that would be left without a father. They talked about political consequences—that was a bridge too far.”~Last Great Stand

He also criticized the leaking of classified information to make the film Zero Dark 30.

There’s a lot of reasons you can release classified information, a lot of justifiable reasons, but making a movie for political gain isn’t one of them,” Mr. Zinke said.

According to Mr. Zinke, there are currently at least four other anti-Obama groups made up of former elite military operatives: Special Operations Speaks, Veterans for a Strong America, Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund Inc. and his group, Special Operations for America. He said he expects that number to climb. Because active-duty soldiers are barred from engaging in political activity, Mr. Zinke believes it is especially important for retired military personnel to speak up.

“It’s really incumbent upon the retired guys to articulate a message. You look at the approval ratings of the president, Congress is in single-digits, the president is not far behind, and I think Americans still appreciate the credibility of our military,” he said.~ Last Great Stand

As for Obama calling for everyone making “swift boat” attacks on his administration, Mr. Zinke had something to say about that too.

There’s going to be attempts to discredit,” Mr. Zinke said. “I guess when you take a stand, you expose yourself to rocks. And so be it.”

For his part, Mr. Zinke said his organization is “not swift boat.”

“I can speak for SOFA—we are not swift boat in that what we are articulat[ing] is factual, and we’re very careful not to make personal attacks. We are making a complete argument of why the administration’s actions and policies are not in the best interests of national defense and national security,” said Mr. Zinke.

Special Operations for America’s upcoming plans include a television commercial. Mr. Zinke said the ad would be “edgy,” but wouldn’t be “a personal attack.”

“I don’t stoop to personal attacks,” he said. “You know, I’m not from Chicago. In Montana, we do things a little differently.”~ Last Great Stand

Special Operations movie about leaking classified information from this administration for personal gain has had over 53 million views. You can see it here. [video on source url page]

This guy needs to do a bit more research. the Swift Boat guys were reporting factual information too; the media’s just had more time to create the discreditation meme about them.

No need to apologize . or refrain from . . “personal attacks” It is this fraud’s personality and belief system (or lack thereof) that makes him the obnoxious 100% political animal he is. His ego and selfishness and lack of discretion are fair game.

I’m glad this guy is retired.

Our nation has survived by the long held belief that the military is apolitical and serve the civilian leadership of the country regardless of party.

Once the military becomes openly political the nation is truly lost.

Sadly some think this means that they serve the government regardless of Constitutionality.

Lets see if they can get the goods on Obama—even Trump failed. But the truth will come out in time and it will be ugly, I believe. We shall see once the MSM dam breaks—Its like the image of Stalin once Mr. K. told the truth in public.

Zinke is way off base. His quote is an insult to the Swift Vets and POWs for Truth. It's hard to believe he doesn't know any better.

It’s not about politics anymore. It’s the free loving people vs a cynical, narcissistic, tyranny. The military should be openly supporting the people.

Good to see this. At least some groups are forming, networking, planning. We are at war with an enemy within. Most people realize this but are busy with their day to day living and in denial of the severity of the threat.

The Threat We Face by David Horowitz. FR thread Here.

Obamacare Should Remind Us We Are Not 'Subjects,' We Are People. FR thread Here.

David and Laura 'get it.' Waiting for the rest of America to realize the threat we face. Glad to here the retired vets are organizing.

Denial is the basis of all defense mechanisms. Our Sacred Republic deserves better. What are you doing to save her?

Continue to spread the word and prepare. The survival of America, and indeed, all of Western Civilization hangs in the balance.

Our nation has survived by the long held belief that the military is apolitical and serve the civilian leadership of the country regardless of party.
Once the military becomes openly political the nation is truly lost.

As you note, “this guy” is retired military and, thus, there is no immediate question as to whether the military has become openly political.

But, you raise an interesting point. You may be aware of this portion of the oath taken by military officers: I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic…

It seems important to note that the oath does not require officers to defend the U.S., but rather to defend the Constitution.

So the issue becomes: what if a particular political party or group of civilian leaders takes significant action that is clearly contrary to the Constitution?
Does that party or group not then become domestic enemies?
Does the “long held belief” include the view that the military is to be at all times, and in the face of all circumstances, apolitical?
Is the military to remain in their barracks while the party or group uses auxiliary forces to control the citizens in a fashion that achieves unconstitutional goals?

I disagree ...

Being a patriot is of no particular "party" ... it just is, and the motivation to be patriotic has nothing to do with politics per se, rather, the defense of righteousness as a nation.

The oath is to defend and protect the Constitution from all enemies

That America is long gone. IMO either the military steps in soon to restore constitutional government or - if too much time goes by and given the direction the services are headed - they will step in some years from now to uphold the rule of someone like obama.

Everyone in America is getting butt f*cked by this president and his administration of clowns, crooks, Marxists, and mediocrities; the Navy SEALs, however, aren’t of the type to bend over passively and take it.

Let’s see where this goes.

Screw you too! You may have been a SEAL, but you aren’t acting like it.
The Swifties told the truth and were attacked by the press for it.
You shouldn’t believe the lies from the libtard press.

I haven't seen aa actual rebuttal of the Swift Boat claims either, just the media saying they where discredited but not saying how.

Which, btw, as much as I hate to say is an example of the pervasive power of 24hr news.

I wish these guys luck but they'll have a hard time getting around obama's pretorian guard-the MSM.
