Ever notice how no cabinet members in the Obama Administration are ever fired but in the last year nine senior generals have been fired? Read why: http://allenbwest.com/?p=1143
Abuse of Power?
A few probably deserved to be fired, but mostly it is because the Obama maladministration hates the military.
...or maybe it’s George Bush’s fault...
Crazy is as crazy does:
This is a very, very, VERY lengthy essay on Obama. That said, if you REALLY want to understand what we’re dealing with, you REALLY need to read this one.
Any dictatorship must purge the military leadership.
We are all frogs sitting in the pot.
how many of them are white heterosexual christian married males in good health put into positions of power by their unearned white privilege?
what this country’s military really needs is more black athiest lesbian divorced female generals in poor health.
We have a winner, given how things have been going.
three main reasons.
1. will not be part of promoting faggotry.
2. will not fire on us civilians or execute other illegal orders.
3. will not persecute christian soldiers in their command.
They read the Constitution? Or know someone who read the Constitution? Or have heard of the Constitution? Or think normal Americans aren't the enemy?
Or, as the military is downsized, there just isn’t the need for flag officers. If there are fewer units to command, there is less need for commanders
It might be as simple as money. From the POV of the joint chiefs, the more we retire, the more money left for us.
Obama always blames somebody else but in this instance there is a clear place to point the finger....... the sequester that he developed. It might get resolved in the military’s favor come the budget talks. but that will be the future.
I never thought it would be so easy for our military to be overthrown.
Obama’s just a “little” Stalin. For now.
Diversity is our strength!
What we are witnessing, from the article:
“Narcissists project a grandiose but false image of themselves.... They created a personality cult around themselves and with their blazing speeches elevated their admirers souls, filled their hearts with enthusiasm and instilled in their minds a new zest for life. They gave them hope! They promised them the moon, but alas, invariably they brought them to their doom. When you are a victim of a cult of personality, you don’t know it until it it too late.”
Stalin murdered his generals. Obama cannot go that far... yet.
Their thought patterns are remarkably similar.
Correction! They used to be ‘generals.’
In 2013: generals= genitals
Posts 7, 11 & 12 are all excellant to the point and correct.
We have WAY too many generals with a much small Army. The decision to cut the BILLETS of the Generals is a great decision.
We’ve been boiling in the pot for a long time, some have become very tired and complacent, others have become very irate, unsettled, anxious and appear to be ready to jump out of the pot.
And Stalin's daughter, after he died, managed to escape dictatorial rule in Russia. She came out through the American embassy in India after getting permission to put her Indian husband's ashes into the Ganges river.
Svetlana Alliluyeva is now living in America.
In firing American generals, Obama is acting like a communist dictator.
PURGE preparing for Martial Law.. when revolt breaks out..
There may be revolt or not. BUT not because Obama is not trying to cause revolt.. he is..
OK. maybe not Obama he is too dumb, but HIS HANDLERS ARE..
Not a peep from coward Rinos. BUt when Bush fires a couple attorneys, they all cry bloody murder.
Obama is creating an army that is loyal to the party.
Sam Vaknin is a fraud with no formal training in psychology or psychiatry but bases his book on his self admitted “malignant personality disorder”.
I remember now GOPe attacking Bush himself for his handling the war in Iraq, and of course the same wont say a thing about this firing of generals.
RIdiculous. THe whole language of Obama must be impeached, it is not about him, it is about demoncrats.
“Svetlana Alliluyeva is now living in America.”
Not any more. She died in 2011.
All of these senior officers from every branch who have been purged—SHOULD MEET.

Went to the site and was disappointed. I thought it was an Allen West blog, but it’s not. The column was nothing but an opinion and inuendo laced short column with no substantiative information.......
You are correct.
Don’t fret. They still have their skills, knowledge, and leadership. They will serve when the country asks it of them. Who their CIC will be is another question.
In before what questions are they being axed!
Is that a rhetorical question you are axing?
Actually, she died in Wisconsin, in 2011.
I got the following in e-mail. I think I may have seen it posted here somewhere, sorry if it's a duplicate:
Charley Reese's final column for the Orlando Sentinel...
545 vs. 300,000,000 People
-By Charlie Reese
Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.
Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?
Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?
You and I don't propose a federal budget. The President does.
You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.
You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.
You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does.
You and I don't control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.
One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.
I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes.
Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits.. ( The President can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.)
The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House?( John Boehner. He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. ) If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to. [The House has passed a budget but the Senate has not approved a budget in over three years. The President's proposed budgets have gotten almost unanimous rejections in the Senate in that time. ]
It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.
If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair.
If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red.
If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it's because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan ..
If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way.
There are no insoluble government problems.
Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power.
Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.
Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible. They, and they alone, have the power.
They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses. Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees... We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

What you do with this article now that you have read it... is up to you.
This might be funny if it weren't so true.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find a new tax
it will pass
Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.
When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.
Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid...
Put these words
Upon his tomb,
‘Taxes drove me
to my doom...’
When he's gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?
Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, & our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
But that is not the point...
Apparently the admirals and generals being dismissed for many petty reasons seem to have similar viewpoints on the marxist tendencies of the 0' regime, while many others are not dismissed - they are protected, to wit, those involved for the regime with Fast & Furious and Benghazi. We are witnessing the transformation of the military, and that is NOT a great thing.
