Skip to comments.Is Obama Creating a Martial-law-ready Military?

What kind of leader wants a military more loyal to himself than to the rule of law?
These are two questions to ponder when considering the strange happenings in the armed forces since Barack Obama took office.
Let's start with a hypothetical. Let's say you were a hard-left-wing commander in chief who wanted the military firmly in your corner. You'd certainly note that our armed forces have been a bastion of conservatism and Christian faith, and you'd know that its members generally weren't very fond of you. So how would you go about changing this?
Some years ago I met a very young, all-American looking white fellow who had just exited the military. His reason was that he hadn't been advanced the way he believed he should have been, and he wasn't going to remain in the armed forces if it provided no future. Now, one interpretation here is that he was a millennial with an inflated opinion of himself (he didn't strike me that way, though). Yet there is another interpretation.
The Obama administration has given affirmative action in the military a dose of steroids, promoting minorities and women -- and, I believe, homosexuals and lesbians -- at the expense of white men. By the way, is this yet another reason why Obama wanted homosexuals to be able to serve openly? After all, you can't target them for special treatment if you don't know who they are.
But the point is this: if I were that hypothetical hard-left-wing leader, I'd know that one way to change the military's political climate is the same way you do it in the nation at large.

Our returning warriors are conditioned to not respond/react to an enemy agressor, they're conditioned to ask, "Father, may I ?"
There won't be another election.
Do you really have to ask?
To permanent Army, something the Founders fought so hard against.
“There Will Be Blood”!
Being a died in the wool Marxist thanks to his almost exclusive communist upbringing, it would be imperative for him to equip every agency in the Federal government which has a law enforcement division with as many weapons as possible.
In fact this is what he told us he wanted when he stated he wanted a domestic agency with the same capabilities as our military and yet the morons of this country still elected him. I guess that should come as no surprise as we have a State who loves to elect democrats W. VA who’s stated goal is to eliminate their major source of jobs and income, coal.
Never underestimate the stupidity of those on the left nor the politicians who will leverage that stupidity for their own advantage.
Is this a rhetorical question?
Not so sure. Zero may try, but the armed citizenry will change that. Just remember, a rifle behind every tree.
They'll operate first where there ARE no trees and get the whores to broadcast the 'rebels' and the rioters that HAD to be put down.
Just because things are moving pretty rapidly now doesn't mean they don't have time ... 2 1/2 years is plenty of time to accomplish a complete coup.
Well, if an army of LGTB's can be considered an army. More like a street parade than an army.
They also didnt tell us that there were lose nukes brought to attention on the very same day that a top Nuke Air force Admiral was sacked/fired by Obama.
don’t forget also pot in every chicken

This has been going on for awhile since so few young men want to serve. The military now promotes the underclass in many ways. As an example, there is no better occupation in America to have a child out of wedlock. Commanders are forced to bend over backwards to accommodate any & all situations that arise.
Mr. Duke is only realizing this now?
0bama said he would do this. As much as we rail against 0bama messing up our Republic, he is actually accomplishing many of the things he campaigned on and said he would do.
We didn’t like it then...and we don’t like it now.
But I think many have underestimated this man and never understood the intentions of the coup.
Does the name Hitler ring any bells.
You may underestimate the man, but don’t underestimate his leader: the current Prince of this World.
Anyone who doesn’t believe in Spiiritual warfare is soon going to have a crash course.
Does anyone know if there is such a thing as “secret” impeachment proceedings?
