Is the Republican Party fomenting rebellion among the armed forces as a political tactic?
Examiner ^ | 2/24/09 | Ron Moore

Posted on 02/25/2009 5:30:42 AM PST by pissant

Alan Keyes' rant that soldiers should refuse orders given by President Obama has produced at least one tangible example. World Net Daily reports that Scott Easterling a U.S. soldier on active duty in Iraq has called President Obama an "impostor" in a statement in which he affirmed plans to join as plaintiff in a challenge to Obama's eligibility to be commander in chief.

The statement was publicized by California attorney Orly Taitz who, along with her Defend Our Freedom Foundation, is working on a series of legal cases seeking to uncover Obama's birth records and other documents that would reveal whether he meets the requirements of the U.S. Constitution.

"As an active-duty officer in the United States Army, I have grave concerns about the constitutional eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama to hold the office of president of the United States," wrote Scott Easterling in a "to-whom-it-may-concern" letter.

"Until Mr. Obama releases a 'vault copy' of his original birth certificate for public review, I will consider him neither my Commander in Chief nor my President, but rather, a usurper to the Office – an impostor," his statement said.

WND reported yesterday that U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., said during a meeting with constituents in Cullman County he has never seen proof the new president was born in Hawaii.

"Well, his father was Kenyan and they said he was born in Hawaii, but I haven't seen any birth certificate," Shelby said. "You have to be born in America to be president."

Recently President Obama’s picture was removed from a base commissary in Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, prompting a challenge by employees as it was allegedly removed after one customer complained noting Obama’s race.

While this may not be a trend, it is noteworthy that the hostility is so openly practiced by those sworn to uphold the Constitution. As President, Ronald Reagan started the practice of treating the military as an adjunct to the Republican Party. Senator Jesse Helms warned President Clinton that if he visited a military base in North Carolina he may be shot and President George W. Bush routinely used members of the military as props during public relations tours.

No. But conservatives are calling on all patriots, military and non-military to demand that the marxist quisling prove he is a NBC, since the GOP and the Dems did not.

How about formenting rebellion to save the Republic? This goes far beyond “politics”.

Alas, the republican party seems to be mostly missing from the ‘save the republic’ efforts.

WND has reported that there are now two soldiers signed
on as plaintiffs.

The new one is a reservist M.P. on active duty and stationed
in Iraq.

Ron Moore is as lazy in his "reporting" (hah) as Keith Olbermann. Alan Keyes is not a Republican.

America's Independent Party

He also didn't say that they should refuse orders. He said that Obama should cough up the ten bucks for his real birth certificate because there may be a multitude of ways in which his authority might be called into question if he doesn't prove he's actually constitutionally qualified to be the President of the United States.

These people are such liars. It's all they know how to do.

LOL! The republican party can’t even get out of its own way, much less foment rebellion among the military against Obama.

The constitution makes no mention of the Republican Party,

but it does mention “the people” multiple times.

I believe this 10th amendment movement is the best strategy at present. Granted, it’s only step one and has no teeth, but it puts the tyrants on notice.

I have been thinking for some time now that the military may have to step in and have a quiet takeover in order to save this country from destruction by those who are trying to destroy it.

No. But members of the Armed Forces, where every day can be a matter of life or death, have the right to know whether the individual who claims to be "The President" is truly "The Commander in Chief", or a Usurper.

The Republicans are an ineffectual group of limp-wristed girly men. They couldn’t foment a rebellion if their lives depended on it. They are impotent, worthless, worse than worthless: They delude the weak-minded into believing they are actually a force for conservatism. That’s a crock.

Face facts folks, we’ve lost the Republic and the “Republicans” cannot possibly provide the channel by which to re-establish it. We’ve got to look to a third party or start our own party.

Mr. Moore would do well to remember that a) our oath is to defend the Constitution, NOT the President, and that b) our oath requires us to defend the Constitution from both foreign and DOMESTIC enemies.

I read the headline...so where is the story to go with it? I can see that they are somewhat related, but the headline is a serious leap from the story itself.

You BEAT me to the punch.

NEVER have I seen such an inept, spineless, incompetent bunch of bozo’s in my life. Spineless losers, all of them. If they found leadership that even came close to that bumbling inspector Clouseau, they might someday luck into winning an election. A dead clock gives the right time twice a day due to happenstance

so what do the “pubbies” do ... they march out Mclame and Grahmnesty to respond to the Magic Negro, oh mighty savior of all ..... talk about loser maroon’s ...

And? It's an oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic." Not an oath to the President, a politician or political party.

That’s quite a stretch to equate a constitutional right to access the courts to a refusal of orders. And anyway, I would think that a soldier has the right to the knowledge that those above him, including the President, are in the chain of command according to the Constitution. As someone who has sworn to uphold the Constitution, he has a duty to question the qualifications of someone who gives him genuine reason to doubt those qualification.

Just a thought.....some 50 years ago and idiot named Kruschev was the commie dictator of the Soviet Union. He threatened to “bury us” via a communist takeover. Had he seriously tried we would have destroyed him. Now we are in the mist of a socialist commie takevover, aided by an ignorant electorate........how much are we expected to take........?

and obama pushing for the GI Bill for his Acorn volunteers in his simulated state of the union speech is not?

remeber obama wants a civilian force to counter the military.

That is why, last night, he was pushing the absurdity of giving community organizers the same benefits as soldiers.

I would too, but rebellion against this destructive administration is not limited to military personnel.

Citizen dissent and rebellion is just as important.

We need a groundswell of dissent, as well as the proliferation of the “Tea Party Movement”.

He can end the controversy by producing a valid birth certificate. There is no reason to refuse to unless it doesn’t exist or reveals something which would call it into question.

The oath military officers take is to “obey LAWFUL orders” No officer is obligated to obey an order that is not lawfully given. If you make that decision though, you better be right!!

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; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.

"One notable difference between the officer and enlisted oaths is that the oath taken by officers does not include any provision to obey orders; while enlisted personnel are bound by the Uniform Code of Military Justice to obey lawful orders, officers in the service of the United States are bound by this oath to disobey any order that violates the Constitution of the United States."

Officer.

Senator Jesse Helms warned President Clinton that if he visited a military base in North Carolina he may be shot

That, and Jesse Helms made the above comment as a JOKE. Which proves what Rush always says about liberals - they can't take a joke.

US President Obama to announce Iraq withdrawal plan on Friday: report - 5 hours ago The decision will be announced during the president's visit to Camp Lejeune in North Carolina on Friday, the officials were quoted by CNN as saying. I expect the Secret Service to be showing up with added protection. Who knows Larry Sinclair might show up.
