Skip to comments.Blaze Sources: Obama Purging Military Commanders
Posted on 10/23/2013 10:32:35 AM PDT by kristinn
Nine senior commanding generals have been fired by the Obama administration this year, leading to speculation by active and retired members of the military that a purge of its commanders is underway.
Retired generals and current senior commanders that have spoken with TheBlaze say the administration is not only purging the military of commanders they dont agree with, but is striking fear in the hearts of those still serving.
The timing comes as the five branches of the U.S. armed forces are reducing staff due to budget cuts, and as U.S. troops are expected to withdraw from Afghanistan next year.
I think theyre using the opportunity of the shrinkage of the military to get rid of people that dont agree with them or not tow the party line. Remember, as (former White House chief of staff) Rahm Emanuel said, never waste a crisis, a senior retired general told TheBlaze on the condition of anonymity because he still provide services to the government and fears possible retribution.
Even as a retired general, its still possible for the administration to make life miserable for us. If were working with the government or have contracts, they can just rip that out from under us, he said.

The real men. A pity.
0 is getting his army of his citizen soldiers, but which country are they coming form?
Well, what are the ones left gonna do about it????
Wait their turn?
If I was writing a book I know how it would end......
Obama is moving into the same league as Stalin.
Nice to know they’ve been reading the threads in this very topic on FR...
Yep, no one left to stand up to him when it is time to use the 1.5B bullets; that’s 5 bullets for each American.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
A list of military officers gone under Obama...
I heard .. that the officers were asked if they would shoot citizens .. and if they said NO, they were fired.
If .. by any chance .. this info is true .. at least we will have some good commanders FREE to support the American citizen; instead of licking the boots of “O”.
We have 300,000,000+ guns, and way more ammo. And the soldiers are our sons.
I’m pretty confident if TSHTF.
I do not know the bonefides of this blog, but the story relaing to the Air Force nuclear guys’ dismissals is mind blowing. Is anyone familiar with this site or the Youtube speaker?
“The term “repression” was officially used to describe the prosecution of people considered counter-revolutionaries and enemies of the people by the leadership of the Soviet Union. The purge was motivated by the desire to remove dissenters from the Communist Party and to consolidate the authority of Joseph Stalin. “
Very similar. Only the names have been changed.
“The term “repression” was officially used to describe the prosecution of people considered counter-revolutionaries and enemies of the people by the leadership of the New Soviet Amerika. The purge was motivated by the desire to remove dissenters from the Democrat Party and to consolidate the authority of Barack Hussein Obama. “
Bush was already stocking the military with ultra-P.C. leadership.
Never Again? The Regime sounds like all the other dictatorships in history, ya think?
I have a fellow musician who I chatted with the other day. He’s retired Navy and Army and worked with a military sub-contractor. I asked him about this and he affirmed it as he said he “knows a couple of generals”. He also mentioned the ‘litmus test’.

They are as evil as any in history.
Obama is moving into the same league as Stalin and Hitler.
EVERYTHING this Bozo is doing smacks of a ‘Silent Coup’. They know that they have the media and education, and various government department like the EPA worship him. So now it is time to convert The Enemy and the military is the obvious first target. Comes the Revolution all the levers of power will be under his control.
By the way, didn’t Stalin purge his military just prior to the German invasion?
Who do you think he learned from?
A strongly unified group of reasonably armed men who have a good history of training together can VERY EASILY dominate a much MUCH larger adversary who are better armed but are strangers to each other.
All combat vets know this.
All this much ballyhooed, “rifle behind every blade of grass” is mostly hooey.
” or not tow the party line. “
TOE the party line.
That is pretty much correct.
Before we go any further, I would like the Commander in Chief himself to answer the question----so we all know.

And we must remember that most Progressives thought there was nothing wrong with the IRS targeting conservative groups. Progressives would be good Useful Idiots/Dupes in a Dictatorship.
Hitler and the the Bolshevics did the same thing as they were
taking control of their countries.
It’s obvious. I hope you were being facetious.
I imagine they’ve been monitoring all communications of key personnel for some time and are clearing out potential dissenters that won’t turn their weapons on citizens. Look to see Muzzies, Nazi feministas, and LBGT’ers fill their shoes.
I think US soldiers WILL follow their bad orders and I think palaver about WOLVERINES! Type scenarios is mostly an adult version of flipping through comic magazines.
I’m taking Chinese lessons. They may get some of our National Parks to pay off the US debt they own. They will move millions of Chinese into them and the one child rule will definitely not be there
vs M1s, Apaches, Bradleys, Drones, etc.
Hey, I’m with you on this, but of the 300m+ guns you cite how many are individual gun owners? 35-40% of the country? that comes to around 105m.
of these how many are libs?
how many of these are ar/ak type platforms?
And a lot of that is probably concentrated in southern and midwestern states.
i know there is an article on FR that asks what can a pistol do and i support that.
i’m just saying the 300m+ figure you cite may not be all that intimidating if we break it down.
btw...i hope we never have to find out.
Stalin purged 20,000 Red Army commanders in 1937, from Tukhachevsky on down, prior to his purge of the Party. He cleared the decks of everybody who wasn’t directly beholden to him for his position.
I think Bill Clinton signed the national parks over to the UN and and named them Heritage sites. The Chinese would have to go through the UN
They're good during the establishment of a dictatorship. Afterwards, they're a major PITA and are among the first to get marched up to the wall. So that's a silver lining, at least.
These are the ones who were most likely to uphold the oath they all took to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC, thus removing a possible threat to his imperial reign....

That’s why they’re Useful Idiots.
I got to know Yuri Bezmenov, a KGB defector. He was very informative on such things.

Has been underway for years......to types who will shoot their fellow citizens from those who will not follow an illegal order.
As I mentioned yesterday the AF has removed one GO out of 300. Not sure the numbers for the other services. It may be that the bar is being raised higher because of intense visibility. In other words they’ve always been doing these things but before they got a pass...not any more.
You’ve got that right. We’re watching the street organizer
doing the same thing to our military. Should he win the next
election, we’ll be seeing pictures of him everywhere, as we
see pictures of arab leaders in the mid east.
I have to wonder if the SS, ‘scuse me, I mean the Secret Service has already been purged. They are protecting zero, will any stand up when it really counts?
Um, no they are not.
These are the same gangs who work with Democrats in our major cities so there is no change in gov't.
anyone got any animated pics of Obama morphing into Stalin handy?
He already answered:
Not all of them....in a few years not most of them. The commies are in the process of "stacking the deck" as we speak.
