Section 4 of the 14th Amendment states: "The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned."

The Govt has a contractual obligation to pay those soldier any death benefit promised.  Way above Welfare or any non contractual benefits or "entitlements." Or any of Obama's "grants" to political cronies. 

Obama is willfully, knowingly, and intentionally defying Constitutional Law again.  Impeachable offense ?!?

Obama bends the law for Egypt but not for our troops

Paul Mirengoff says the Defense Department took pains yesterday to explain to the House Armed Services Committee why it could not, under the law, provide benefits to the families of troops who die during the government shutdown. Congress had passed a law -- the Pay Our Military Act -- that it thought would ensure the provision of death benefits during a shutdown. But Robert Hale, the Defense Department’s Comptroller, earnestly contended that a parsing of the statutory language did not support making such payments. (Congress now has passed a new statute, which President Obama signed, to make sure payments occur).

Even from an administration inclined to follow the letter of the law, Hale’s testimony would have caused eye-rolling. From the Obama administration, it’s an occasion for guffaws.

This is a crew that refused to define the military takeover in Egypt as a “coup” within the meaning of a statute that requires a cutoff of military aid in the event of a coup. Obama’s principal deputy press secretaries explained that “it is not in the best interests of the United States to reach a determination on a coup.”

In short, the extent to which the wording of laws determines how the Obama administration will behave depends on its view of the nation’s “best interests.” Apparently, until a stink was raised, Team Obama did not find it in our best interests to provide death benefits to families of troops who die serving our country.

Why is Barack Obama firing so many senior military commanders?

Craig Whitlock reported the Air Force fired the general in charge of all land-based nuclear missiles, the second time in a week that a senior commander of the country's nuclear arsenal has been let go for allegations of personal misconduct.

Maj. Gen. Michael Carey, commander of the 20th Air Force, was removed from his job "due to a loss of trust and confidence in his leadership and judgment," said Brig. Gen. Les Kodlick, an Air Force spokesman.

Air Force officials said Carey has been under investigation since this summer for allegations of "personal misbehavior" but would not specify what prompted his firing.

Pressed by reporters at a Pentagon news conference, Kodlick said the case did not involve drugs, sexual misconduct, gambling or any form of criminal activity, but he declined to comment when asked if alcohol played a role. He said he could not give further details because the investigation was still underway.

"We wanted to make it very clear it wasn't operations-related," Kodlick said.

Carey's firing comes two days after the Navy announced it had fired a three-star admiral from his post as deputy commander of the U.S. Strategic Command, which oversees all nuclear-armed missiles, bombers and submarines.

In that case, Vice Adm. Tim Giardina remains under investigation by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service after a casino in Iowa allegedly caught him using $1,500 in counterfeit gambling chips. The casino is near the Strategic Command headquarters in Omaha.

The U.S. military has seen a rash of generals and admirals lose their jobs over the past year for alleged personal misconduct. But the firings of Carey and Giardina were especially unusual, given their responsibility for nuclear weapons.

The 20th Air Force is responsible for operating intercontinental ballistic missiles. Overall, the Air Force maintains about 450 Minuteman III missiles at three bases in North Dakota, Wyoming and Montana.

The Air Force said Carey's alleged misconduct occurred during a temporary duty assignment away from the 20th Air Force headquarters in Cheyenne, Wyo., but officials declined to say when or where it happened.

The decision to relieve Carey of command was made by Lt. Gen. James Kowalski, head of the Air Force Global Strike Command, after he received an interim report from the Air Force's inspector general, officials said.

Team Obama is openly shaking up the top ranks of the military command structure -- but is it also preparing to make war on the American population? According to a person identified as a former senior military official, the answer to that shocking question is yes.

World-renowned educator and human rights activist Jim Garrow says that the source, man regarded as "one of America's foremost military heroes," told him that Barack Obama is using a new litmus test for "determining who will stay and who must go" among top-ranked military leaders. That test is whether they will fire on US citizens or not. Garrow says that his source made the disclosure in order to "sound the alarm" over the administration's plans.

Obama has been messing witht senior military commanders since the beginning. 

Shortly after the 2009 inauguration, senior Newsweek editor, Jonathan Alter, included an account in his book in which Gen. Petraseus and Secretary Gates swore loyalty to Barack Obama (eighth paragraph).

What does "loss of trust" mean in Obama's firing of top general?

Dr. Kevin "Coach" Collins is reporting that last week, the man in charge of America’s Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) defense system was fired by Barack Obama. Of course, you have heard almost nothing about this from Obama’s kept media. They have no curiosity about why General Michael Carey, a 35 year Air Force officer and a man with a sterling record of service to our nation,  would be fired with no reasons offered by this anti-military Administration.

In the middle of his golf tour and a few threatening statements to Ted Cruz, Barack Obama found time to fire General Carey from his position as commander of our most essential missile defense system.

In the absence of media scrutiny, speculation is filling in the blanks. The website militarycorruption.com is covering this story; and as usual, it is doing an outstanding job. Thinking out loud, MC.com wonders what the General could have done wrong (or, more to the point, what he has done right.) They are asking why no one is demanding to hear the rationale behind this move and pressing to discover what really happened. MC.com is asking if it could be because General Carey has expressed an unwillingness to participate in a future Obama order to institute martial law.

Remember Obama’s whispered assurances to the Russians that once he was re-elected, he would be able to strip America of its missile defenses? Is this firing a payback to the Russians for some concession they have made?

For a town that thrives on rumors and gossip, Washington is eerily quiet about the Carey firing.   MC.com puts it this way: “All we’ve been told so far is what Carey didn’t do wrong. Pentagon flaks assure us that the humiliating relief of command was not the result of gambling drug use, sexual impropriety, or criminal conduct. They say it isn’t related to operational deficiencies or recent inspection results. They haven’t mentioned homosexuality -- that old stand-by charge used to destroy a targeted officer, if all else failed….. No, the Pentagon will only say that the drastic action was triggered by a "loss of trust." What the hell does that mean? That Carey refused to "follow orders" from the "commander-in-chief" because he loves America more?”

Yes, just what the hell does "Loss of trust" mean?

Obama is systematically culling the military of any high ranking officers that show any indifference toward him and has been for some time now.

In the future this will be permanent stain on the Officer Corp of all services.  We once had the best Officer Corp in the world, sworn to The Constitution, not any person or party.  They were honor bound not to obey "an unlawful order".

Now we have a problem somewhat like Nazi Germany, officers who are not personally 'loyal' to the Dear Leaders are being demonized, destroyed, and fired.  At least Obama hasn't started executing them....yet.  I think it is time for the military to arrest and try Obama as Commander-in-Thief under the UCMJ.

Obama wants Marines to wear "girly" hats

Jeane MacIntosh is reporting that A change to the Marine Corps' uniform hats could take the hard-nosed Leathernecks from the Halls of Montezuma to the shops of Christopher Street.

Thanks to a plan by Barack Obama to create a "unisex" look for the Corps, officials are on the verge of swapping out the Marines' iconic caps with a new hat that some have derided as so "girly" that they would make the French blush.

[MarineCovers]

"We don't even have enough funding to buy bullets, and the DoD is pushing to spend $8 million on covers that look like women's hats!" one senior Marine source fumed to The Post. "The Marines deserve better. It makes them look ridiculous."

The thin new hats have a feminine line that some officials think would make them look just as good on female marines as on males -- in keeping with the Obama directive.

They have been dubbed the "Dan Daly" hat, after a sergeant from Long Island who won the Medal of Honor in World War I.

But some Marines love the old hat, which has been in use since 1922 and think the new hat is a glorified "porter's cap."

"The Dan Daly cap looks too French, and the last people we want to associate our Marines with would be the French military," wrote one commenter on the Marine Times Web site.

As of now, the new hats are only in the proposal stage.

Officials have until Friday to cast their votes on whether to adopt them or keep the old hat with modifications. Marine Corps head Gen. James Amos will make the final decision.

According to a memo obtained by The Post, replacing the hats could cost over $8 million.

A poll of a Marine uniform advisory board found that "The group members did not like the appearance of the Dan Daly cap on the male Marine."

Ewwwrah! Marine Corps shoots down unisex covers

Ben Kesling is reporting that the Marine Corps has shot down plans to make male and female leathernecks wear a unisex cap (photo) with their dress uniforms.

The Corps has been redesigning its female caps and was exploring the possibility of issuing a single cap for men and women. A survey this week was meant to gauge interest in which of two options would work as a unisex cap -- but critics said one new prototype was too feminine.

Marine Corps Commandant Gen. James Amos has put an end to the matter. "The survey was incorrect when published and has been pulled. The Marine Corps has zero intention of changing the male cover," he said in a statement Friday.

Changing the cover design has been a decade-long process of military boards, field trials and prototypes. A Marine spokesman said the impetus for a potential unisex design was simple: “the manufacturer of the female cover is going out of business…a lot of uniform items aren’t cost effective to make,” he said.

In 2002, the Female Uniform Symposium decided the current women’s cap needed redesign because it was expensive and many complained it was not as spiffy as the male version.

In 2007, Marine officials approved a new, improved female cap and in 2012, as it neared implementation, the Commandant of the Marine Corps jumped in, delaying procurement of new caps and ordering experts to explore the idea of a “universal” cap to be worn by both sexes.

This summer a new cap was tested for “fit and function” with the majority of females approving of the design.

In online surveys, some Marines suggested the new female cap resembles the design worn by Marines in the early 1900s, most famously by Dan Daly, twice the recipient of the Medal of Honor and famous for yelling to his men in battle, “Come on, you sons of b—–s, do you want to live forever?”

Once it became known as the “Dan Daly cap,” the design became a candidate for universal wear. But some complain it exudes a feminine air, despite being named for an especially bellicose Marine. And a change in design would have cost the Corps an estimated $6.9 million, according to a Marines spokesman.

Does the U. S. Army consider Christians, TEA Party, a terror threat?

On the very base that was the site of mass murder carried out by a radicalized Muslim soldier, it is astonishing that it is evangelical groups that are being identified as a terror threat.

Fox News' Todd Starnes is reporting that soldiers attending a pre-deployment briefing at Fort Hood say they were told that evangelical Christians and members of the TEA Party were a threat to the nation and that any soldier donating to those groups would be subjected to punishment under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

A soldier who attended the Oct. 17th briefing told me the counter-intelligence agent in charge of the meeting spent nearly a half hour discussing how evangelical Christians and groups like the American Family Association were "Tearing the country apart."

Michael Berry, an attorney with the Liberty Institute, is advising the soldier and has launched an investigation into the incident.

"The American public should be outraged that the U.S. Army is Teaching our troops that evangelical Christians and TEA Party members are enemies of America, and that they can be punished for supporting or participating in those groups," said Berry, a former Marine Corps JAG officer.

"These statements about evangelicals being domestic enemies are a serious charge."

The soldier told me he fears reprisals and asked not to be identified. He said there was a blanket statement that donating to any groups that were considered a threat to the military and government was punishable under military regulations.

"My first concern was if I was going to be in trouble going to church," the evangelical Christian soldier told me. "Can I tithe? Can I donate to Christian charities? What if I donate to a politician who is a part of the TEA Party movement?"

Another soldier who attended the briefing alerted the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty. That individual’s recollections of the briefing matched the soldier who reached out to me.

"I was very shocked and couldn’t believe what I was hearing," the soldier said. "I felt like my religious liberties, that I risk my life and sacrifice time away from family to fight for, were being taken away."

And while a large portion of the briefing dealt with the threat evangelicals and the TEA Party pose to the nation, barely a word was said about Islamic extremism, the soldier said.

"Our community is still healing from the act of terrorism brought on by Nidal Hasan -- who really is a terrorist," the soldier said. "This is a slap in the face. "The military is supposed to defend freedom and to classify the vast majority of the military that claim to be Christian as terrorists is sick."

Obama's military purge

Is the Obama administration in the midst of a military purge? This year alone, nine senior commanding generals have been fired by Team Obama, and retired generals and current commanders who have spoken to TheBlaze believe that political ideology is the primary impetus behind the effort. "I think they're using the opportunity of the shrinkage of the military to get rid of people that don't agree with them or not toe the party line," a senior retired general told website. "Remember, as Rahm Emanuel said, never waste a crisis." The general spoke on the condition of anonymity because he still provides the government with services and believes this administration would retaliate against him.

Arnold Ahlert says terminations have a distinctly political odor surrounding them in at least three cases. In all three of these cases, Benghazi is at root. U.S. Army Gen. Carter Ham was heading the United States African Command when our consulate came under attack on September 11, 2012. Ham told Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) he was never given a “stand down” order preventing him from securing the consulate. Yet the Washington Times, citing sources in the military, said he was given the order and immediately relieved of command when he decided to defy it. The Times further noted that Ham “retired” less that two years after receiving the command when all other commanders of similar stature have stayed on far longer. Sources told TheBlaze Ham was highly critical of the Obama administration’s decision not to send reinforcements to Benghazi.

Rear Adm. Charles Gaouette, Commander of Carrier Strike Group Three for the Navy, was relieved of duty for allegedly using profanity and making “racially insensitive comments.” Though he was cleared of criminal violations under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, administrative penalties have effectively ended his career. In testimony regarding Benghazi, Gaouette, who was in charge of Air Craft Carriers in the Mediterranean Sea on the night of the attack, told Congress there may not have been time to get flight crews to Libya. But under cross examination, he admitted he could have sent planes to that location.

Major General Baker, a two-star general who served as commander of the Joint Task Force-Horn at Camp Lamar in Djibouti, Africa, was fired for alcohol and sexual misconduct charges. The U.S. reportedly runs counter-terror operations out of Djibouti, and once again, military officials told TheBlaze Baker was involved in some aspect of Benghazi.

The other six were terminated for a variety of alleged offenses. Army Brigadier Gen. Bryan Roberts, commander of Fort Jackson beginning in 2011, was fired for adultery. Marine Corps Maj. Gen. Gregg A. Sturdevant, director of Strategic Planning and Policy for the U.S. Pacific Command and commander of the aviation wing at Camp Bastion, Afghanistan, was terminated over a successful attack on that facility by the Taliban, resulting in two American deaths and the destruction of eight American planes. Sturdevant claims British forces were responsible for security at the base prior to the attack.

Marine Corps Maj. Gen. Charles M.M. Gurganus was terminated for questioning the “winning hearts and minds” policies that led to “green on blue” murders of American officers by “trusted” Afghan recruits. Other Afghan recruits led a platoon into an enemy ambush. Army Lt. Gen. David Holmes Huntoon Jr was “censored” for “an investigation” into an “improper relationship,” according to the Department of Defense. A blog written by a 26-year-old cadet medically discharged from West Point claims the three-star general was under investigation because a West Point Superintendent “improperly used” his office, and because of an insufficient investigation of a lewd email chain perpetrated by the men’s rugby team. Nothing was officially released by the DoD regarding any of the charges.

The last commanders, three-star Vice Admiral Tim Giardina, and Major General Michael Carey, were fired within 48 hours of each other. Giardina was the deputy commander of the U.S. Strategic Command, an entity that oversees all nuclear-armed missiles, bombers and submarines. He was commander of the Submarine Group Trident, Submarine Groups 9 and 10, which comprise all 18 of our nuclear-armed submarines. He was fired for the alleged use of counterfeit gambling chips at an Iowa casino. Carey, commander of the 20th Air Force, a role that put him in charge of 9,600 people and 450 Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles at three operational wings, was fired “due to a loss of trust and confidence in his leadership and judgment,” said Air Force spokesman Brig. Gen. Les Kodlick. The decision to fire Carey was made by Lt. Gen. James Kowalski, the head of the Air Force Global Strike Command. Obama fired Giardina.

The firing of military leaders goes much further than top generals, however. On its Facebook page, Breitbart.com compiled a list of more than 197 military commanders, mostly at the rank of Colonel or above, who have been purged by the Obama administration since 2009.

According to military.com, allegations of sexual misconduct account for the firing of 30 percent of military commanders over the past eight years. That figure that increases to 40 percent when “ethical lapses” such as sexual assault and harassment, pornography, drugs and drinking are lumped together. But there are other dubious reasons why these commanders have been terminated, ranging from unspecified dereliction of duty, to improper saluting.

One of the largest purges occurred on the last day of November in 2011, when the administration terminated 157 Air Force Majors, a move the Chapman University of Military Law and its associated AMVETS Legal Clinic characterized as illegal. They noted that the Department of Defense specifies that absent extenuating circumstances, service members within six years of retirement would ordinarily be retained, and allowed to retire on time and collect benefits.

The Air force cited budget shortfalls as their primary reason for the terminations. Yet as institute director Maj. Kyndra Rotunda explained, based on the Defense Department’s Instruction 1320.08, “derogatory information” is the only reason officers can be terminated. “The defense department’s own regulation does not authorize what the defense department is doing,” Rotunda contended at the time. “The Airmen relied on the law when they entered service and now the Secretary wants to change that law, without authority.”

Earlier that same month, two-star Major Gen. Peter Fuller was relieved of his command in Afghanistan, after he told Politico that Afghan President Hamid Karzai and other government officials in that country were “isolated from reality.” Ironically, Fuller was fired by Gen. John Allen, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, who was himself the subject of an FBI investigation a year later, for his role in the sex scandal that led to the resignation of CIA Director and retired general David Petraeus. Despite the FBI informing the Pentagon it had uncovered thousands of pages of emails between Allen and Florida socialite Jill Kelley, President Obama subsequently expressed ”faith” in Allen’s ability to continue doing his job. It is impossible to determine whether Allen’s ideology played a role in maintaining that faith.

2012 also saw several terminations of officers based on questionable rationale. In May, Commander Derick Armstrong, commanding officer of the guided missile destroyer USS The Sullivans, was relieved of duty by Vice Adm. Frank Pandolfe ”as a result of an unprofessional command climate that was contrary to good order and discipline,” according to a Navy news release. A week earlier, the Navy relieved Cmdr. Dennis Klein of command of the submarine USS Columbia, citing a loss of confidence in his ability to serve effectively.

Stars and Strips listed several other Navy commanders relieved of duty in 2012. While some on the list were terminated for seemingly legitimate reasons, a curious lack of specificity applied to others. They include Capt. James CoBell, commanding officer of Oceana Naval Air Station’s Fleet Readiness Center Mid-Atlantic, who was let go for “leadership issues”; Cmdr. Franklin Fernandez, commanding officer of Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 24, for a “loss of confidence” in his ability to command due to allegedly “driving under the influence”; Capt. Marcia Lyons, commander of Naval Health Clinic New England, for problems with her “command climate”; and Capt. Sean McDonell, commander of Seabee reserve unit Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 14 in Jacksonville, FL, for mismanagement and unspecified “major program deficiencies.” Several others were fired for “inappropriate personal behavior” or “personal misconduct.”

Theories for these purges run the gamut. One posits that anyone associated with Benghazi had to go. Another states that many of these firings are an effort to clean up “operational failures,” most notably a 2007 incident in which six nuclear-tipped missiles went missing for 36 hours. Retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely, who has been an outspoken critic of the Obama administration, believes it is part of the president’s strategy to reduce America’s standing in the world. “[Obama is] intentionally weakening and gutting our military, Pentagon and reducing us as a superpower, and anyone in the ranks who disagrees or speaks out is being purged,” he contended.

Vallely’s assessment was echoed by a source at the Pentagon who wished to remain anonymous because the source was not authorized to speak on the subject. He or she contended that “young officers, down through the ranks have been told not to talk about Obama or the politics of the White House. They are purging everyone and if you want to keep your job–just keep your mouth shut.”

This theory finds validation when one considers the Obama administration’s larger assault on the military. The military is the last organized bastion of conservative values, due in large part to the nature of the military itself. Yet in recent years, the push to embrace progressive values, such as openly gay servicemen, women in combat and diversity worship have been pursued with vigor. Even the aforementioned effort to “win the hearts and minds” of Islamists in Iraq and Afghanistan, as opposed to pursuing victory, marks a sea change from traditional military values.

Not only is the Obama administration apparently on a mission to undermine the integrity of the military in this way, but it has also revealed itself to be entirely intolerant of dissent of any kind. Whether it is reporters or domestic opposition groups such as the Tea Party, Obama has made clear he will aggressively pursue anyone who defies his agenda. Now it seems that chilling message his been sent to the military as well.

Pentagon training manual: white males have unfair advantages

Todd Starnes is reporting that a controversial 600-plus page manual used by the military to train its Equal Opportunity officers teaches that "healthy, white, heterosexual, Christian" men hold an unfair advantage over other races, and warns in great detail about a so-called "White Male Club."

"Simply put, a healthy, white, heterosexual, Christian male receives many unearned advantages of social privilege, whereas a black, homosexual, atheist female in poor health receives many unearned disadvantages of social privilege," reads a statement in the manual created by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI).

The manual, which was obtained by Fox News, also instructs troops to "support the leadership of people of color. Do this consistently, but not uncritically," the manual states.

The military manual goes into great detail about a so-called "White Male Club."

The Equal Opportunity Advisor Student Guide is the textbook used during a three month DEOMI course taught at Patrick Air Force Base in Florida. Individuals who attend the training lead Equal Opportunity briefings on military installations around the nation.

The 637-page manual covers a wide range of issues from racism and religious diversity to cultural awareness, extremism and white privilege.

I obtained a copy of the manual from an Equal Opportunity officer who was disturbed by the course content and furious over the DEOMI’s reliance on the Southern Poverty Law Center for information on "extremist" groups. 

"I’m participating in teaching things that are not true," the instructor told me. He asked not to be identified because he feared reprisals.

"I should not be in a position to do that," he said. "It violates Constitutional principles, but it also violates my conscience. And I’m not going to do it -- not going to do it."

DEOMI instructors were also responsible for briefings at bases around the country that falsely labeled evangelical Christians, Catholics and a number of high-profile Christian ministries as domestic hate groups. 

I contacted the Pentagon as well as the DEOMI multiple times for comment on this story, but so far they have not responded to my requests.

Browse through a 20-page excerpt from the manual here.

Continue reading here . . .

This crap is pure cultural Marxism and originates from the work of the Marxists of the Frankfurt School. Just read the first item here -- better yet, read the whole page.

This certainly is not going to help unit cohesion.

Top generals say Obama is "purging the military"

F. Michael Maloof is reporting that retired Army Maj. Gen. Patrick Brady, recipient of the U.S. military's highest decoration, the Medal of Honor, as well as other top retired officers, say Barack Obama's agenda is decimating the morale of the U.S. ranks to the point members no longer feel prepared to fight or have the desire to win.

"There is no doubt he (Obama) is intent on emasculating the military and will fire anyone who disagrees with him" over such issues as "homosexuals, women in foxholes, the Obama sequester," Brady told WND.

"They are purging everyone, and if you want to keep your job, just keep your mouth shut," one source told WND.

Not only are military service members being demoralized and the ranks' overall readiness being reduced by the Obama administration's purge of key leaders, colonels -- those lined up in rank to replace outgoing generals -- are quietly taking their careers in other directions.

Retired Army Lt. Gen. William G. "Jerry" Boykin, who was with Delta Force and later Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence under President George W. Bush, says it is worrying that four-star generals are being retired at the rate that has occurred under Obama.

"Over the past three years, it is unprecedented for the number of four-star generals to be relieved of duty, and not necessarily relieved for cause," Boykin said.

"I believe there is a purging of the military," he said. "The problem is worse than we have ever seen."

Boykin points out that the military adheres to the constitutional requirement of a civilian leadership over the military. As a consequence, officers are not allowed to criticize their civilian leadership, as occurred when Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal was relieved in 2010 of his command of the International Security Assistance Force and commander of U.S. Forces in Afghanistan.

He was relieved due to what has been described as unflattering remarks made about Vice President Joe Biden and other administration officials in a Rolling Stone magazine article. He was recalled to Washington where Obama accepted his resignation as commander in Afghanistan.

Boykin says that because of the fundamental civilian leadership over the military, McCrystal was "appropriately forced to retire."

Some officers were involved in adulterous affairs and those situations, Boykin said, also were grounds for dismissal.

Boykin specifically said that because of the civilian-military relationship, he did not see any prospect for a "coup" coming from the military ranks.

"People I've spoken to would like to see the military ‘fulfill their constitutional duty and take out the president,'" Boykin said. "Our Constitution puts a civilian in charge of the military and as a result a coup would not be constitutional. You're not going to see a coup in the military."

Nevertheless, Boykin said the future of the military is becoming more and more of concern, since colonels who would be generals also are being relieved of duty, if they show that they're not going to support Obama's agenda, which critics have described as socialist.

"I talk to a lot of folks who don't support where Obama is taking the military, but in the military they can't say anything," Boykin said.

As a consequence, he said, the lower grades therefore have decided to leave, having been given the signal that there is no future in the military for them.

Boykin referred to recent reports that Obama has purged some 197 officers in the past five years.

These reports suggest these officers were suspected of disloyalty or disagreed with the Obama administration on policy or force-structure issues. As Boykin pointed out, a number of them have been relieved of duty for no given reason.

"Morale is at an unprecedented low," Boykin said, part of which is due to sequestration.

Sequestration has seriously cut back operational readiness for the military to the point where Boykin said that often they have no ammunition and are unable to conduct training because of the planned cuts.

"These officers want to train for war but are not be allowed to" because of the preoccupation not only with sequestration, but what Boykin said were other concerns surfacing in the military under Obama as commander-in-chief.

He referred specifically to the recent repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," which now allows openly homosexual personnel in the military. In addition, he said the integration of women into the infantry "will reduce readiness of units." He also was critical of the rules of engagement which he says favor "political correctness over our ability to fight to win."

"The last time we won an all-out war was in 1944," Boykin said. "Now, we don't have the will to win."

Obama is an anti-colonialist, Marxist, and hates America and capitalism

The military must be destroyed.  It defends all he hates.  So he turns it into a Lib/Prog Experiment - designed to fail -- like ObamaCare.

He forgets that the Constitutional Republic is ingrained in the DNA of hundreds of thousands, and believed in by millions, of real Americans of all races and ethnicity.  Many recognized, and many more now see, that he is the Enemy of the Democratic Republic. There are millions of veterans and their children and friends that are just now realizing what we fought for.  And what the Obamunists want to take away.

Navy SEALs ordered to remove "don’t tread on me" Navy Jack from uniforms

Carl Higbie is reporting that the Navy Jack is the "Don’t Tread On Me" flag, one that has earned a revered place in America’s naval history and a beloved place in sailor’s hearts, through its use for over two centuries. This symbol of America’s naval ferocity has spanned our country’s entire existence, flying from the masts of the Continental Navy during the war of independence, to today’s War on Terror. In fact, an amendment to the Navy code called SECNAV Instruction 10520.6 clearly states that as of 31 May 2002 all ships are to fly the flag throughout the duration of the War on Terror.

So why would ranking SEAL commanders ban the historical symbol? Is the proverbial top bass banning the flag? Is Barack Obama?

Clearly the administration and sycophant "top brass" officers have degraded America’s military prestige; from hand-tying rules of engagement, to uniform regulations that make our military allegedly more compatible with foreign forces, to the banning of an awe-inspiring flag that traces its roots to the first U.S. Navy. We have a civilian-led military, but why should our ranking commanders be complicit in the administration’s war on it? Why don’t they stand up to Obama and his leftist cronies?

During my two deployments to Iraq, “Don’t Tread On Me” was a phrase seen on nearly every uniform and platoon space -- including mine. From patches to flags to large paintings on concrete barriers, our commanders themselves wore the insignia on their sleeves -- until now.

Perhaps this is why so many of my former teammates felt compelled to send me the email below. They may not be able to expose the administration’s travesty, but I can. The email, dated October 22, reads:

ALL:

WARCOM and GROUP TWO/ONE have pushed out the uniform policy for NWU III and any patches worn on the sleeve.

All personnel are only authorized to wear the matching “AOR” American Flag patch on the right shoulder.  You are no longer authorized to wear the “Don’t Tread On Me” patch.

Again the only patch authorized for wear is the American flag on the right shoulder. Please pass the word to all

Thanks

Senior Enlisted Advisor

[Name Redacted]

After reading the email, I first wondered, "why?" (Actually, first I headed to the gym to take out my frustration and anger on some unsuspecting weights with the fury and intensity only a former Navy SEAL can exert.) Why would our leaders sell out our heritage? Why would they rob present and future sailors of our battle cry?

When a friend of mine asked his leadership the same question, he was told, "The Jack is too closely associated with radical groups." We must assume that this thought policeman embedded in the SEAL community is speaking of the TEA Party, whose flag (which also dates from the American Revolution) depicts a snake with the same defiant slogan as The Navy Jack.

This begs yet another question: Who defines “radical group”? The last time I checked, all military personnel are under oath to “support and defend the constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” The TEA Party stands for constitutional rights and founding principles of civil liberties and limited government. Radical? Not unless you’re a leftist hell-bent on destroying the foundations of our country. Or as Obama has stated as the objective of his presidency, “to fundamentally transform” America.

My friends asked me what they should do about this order. I answer them by saying, “You took an oath to defend this country from enemies foreign and domestic. Will you put your career before country? Will you put your career before your sacred oath?” I cannot tell anyone how to respond. I can tell you though that an enemy -- foreign or domestic -- that tries to take the Navy Jack from my uniform could only do so by ripping the patriotic patch from the uniform of my cold, dead body.

We all have choices to make. Team Obama and the yes-men top brass have decided to wage war on our Navy’s heritage. Will the SEALs choose to defend that heritage and defy them, with all the impertinence the flag’s slogan implies? Or will they be tread upon?

Lawsuit argues that the Department of Veterans Affairs discriminated against conservative chaplains

Ken Klukowski is reporting that on November 8, a Christian group sued Barack Obama’s U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) through the VA’s Secretary Eric Shinseki for religious discrimination.

The complaint filed in the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., Conservative Baptist Association v. Shinseki, alleges details of incidents where conservative Christians were denigrated for their orthodox beliefs while attending the Clinical Pastoral Education Center, run by the VA. It claims that on more than one occasion, the instructor barked, “Do not quote Scripture in this class!” when the plaintiffs expressed their religious beliefs on issues discussed in class.

The complaint specifies instances where this occurred, such as when the VA instructor led exchanges on whether God is a man versus a woman, whether the Darwinian theory of evolution is a fact that Christians must accept, and whether salvation is through faith in Jesus Christ.

Two chaplains -- Dan Klender and Steven Firtko -- were expelled from the chaplains’ program allegedly because of their traditional and orthodox Christian beliefs. The lawsuit seeks their reinstatement as VA chaplains, along with a declaration that their religious liberty was violated by the VA’s actions. It also seeks a federal court order that the VA cease discriminating against chaplains on the basis of those persons’ sincerely-held Christian beliefs.

Naturally, there is no criticism of Muslim chaplains promoting Sharia law, that among other barbarous behavior -- like chopping off people's heads -- condemns homosexuals, adulterers, and apostates to death.

Such is religious freedom in the Age of Obama

Hagel says cuts to military pay and benefits are needed

Richard Sisk is reporting that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel warned Tuesday that troops and their families will be asked to sacrifice on pay and benefits to preserve readiness in an era of tighter budgets.

Hagel listed politically-charged changes to compensation and personnel policy as one of his top six priorities in reforming the military following the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as the department gears up to meet new challenges.

"This may be the most difficult" to achieve among his six priorities, Hagel said of proposals to trim pay increases, overhaul TRICARE and review retirement benefits while adapting to cuts in personnel.

"Without serious attempts to achieve significant savings in this area, which consumes roughly half of the DoD budget and is increasing every year, we risk becoming an unbalanced force," Hagel said.

The alternative was to have a military that is "well-compensated, but poorly trained and equipped, with limited readiness and capability," Hagel said in a keynote address to a Global Security Forum 2013 sponsored by the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

this just up, and the list (from http://investmentwatchblog.com/list-of-names-military-purge-high-officers-terrifying/ ) is as current as possible, I guess:

List of names: Military Purge High Officers -- Terrifying  (this is not in the headline, but the TOTAL NUMBER of officers purged is 157, please go to the original column to see who and where ALL of them were)

Look up the service records of some of these guys. MOST have perfect LONG services, highly decorated.

Military Suicides Drop; Unclear Why (2013)
“Last year the number of suicides in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines spiked to 349 for the
full 12-month period, the highest since the Pentagon began closely tracking the numbers in 2001,
and up from the 2011 total of 301. There were 295 Americans killed in Afghanistan [war] last year,
by the AP’s count.” There are more dying by suicide than in war. Why????
http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory/apnewsbreak-military-suicides-drop-unclear-20855176

“In 2005 alone, there were 6,256 suicides nationally among those who served in the armed

Obama FBI partners with Leftist extremist group to smear Christians

Matt Barber is reporting that the magnitude of Team Obama’s “progressive” radicalism becomes more evident with each passing day. In recent months, there has been a drastic spike in acts of both anti-Christian and anti-conservative discrimination and intimidation on military bases across the country. This mounting harassment is not being carried out at the hands of regular enlisted folk but, rather, at the hands of high-ranking officials who, in their official capacity, are targeting Christian and conservative organizations and individuals in an effort to silence them.

It has long been suspected that the Obama administration is using propaganda circulated by the roundly discredited Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a left-wing extremist group that, in recent years, has adopted two primary goals: 1) raising truckloads of money and 2) smearing as “domestic hate groups” dozens of mainstream Christian ministries like the Family Research Council (FRC) and the American Family Association (AFA.)

This suspicion has now been verified.

The problem on military bases has gotten so bad, in fact, that the U.S. Congress is demanding answers from the Pentagon. Recently, the AFA-affiliated OneNewsNow.com newsgroup reported that “Congressman Alan Nunnelee (R-Mississippi) is 1 of 38 members of Congress signing off on a letter to the Secretary of the Army – especially about an incident last month at Camp Shelby, Mississippi, in which the Tupelo-based American Family Association was labeled in Army training material as a ‘hate group.’ The Army initially claimed it was an isolated incident.

“‘But as we looked into it, [we found] this is not an isolated incident,’ Nunnelee [told] OneNewsNow. ‘There are a number of cases where the Army has singled out the American Family Association and other Christian organizations as hate groups, and service men and women have been threatened with sanctions if they support these groups.”

After a tremendous public outcry – and in an embarrassing slap to the face of the SPLC – the Pentagon quickly backpedaled, later apologizing about the Camp Shelby incident and publicly admitting that, despite the SPLC’s absurd claims to the contrary, the AFA is not a “hate group.”

Still, rather than distancing itself from the anti-Christian SPLC as one might expect, the Obama administration has, instead, strengthened ties to the hard-left outfit. Even after this string of military scandals.

For instance, I recently learned that on its official website, the FBI lists as one of its primary “hate crimes resources” the Southern Poverty Law Center.

This is especially mysterious when you consider that the FBI’s own verified hate crimes statistics are completely at odds with numbers put out by the SPLC in its fundraising propaganda. Whereas the FBI indicates that there was a sharp 24.3 percent decrease in hate crimes from 1996 to 2010, with racial hate crimes dropping by 41.9 percent, the SPLC incongruously claims that since 2000, the number of “hate groups” has somehow increased by 67.3 percent.

Army giving up "stopping power" for green bullets

AWR Hawkins is reporting that the Army is switching from lead bullets in many small caliber arms to "environmentally friendly" rounds in 2014, even through the lead bullets are tried and true while the stopping power of the "green" bullets is already being questioned.

The Daily Caller reports that the Army switched to a "green" round for its 5.56 mm ammo in 2010 -- these are the bullets used in an MP4 or an AR-15.

[greenbullet]

This ammo is referred to as an "Enhanced Performance Round," even though a Fox News report raises suspicions over just how enhanced the new round will be. They quote "ballistics experts" who say "the new rounds won't be substantially more deadly" than the old ones. Nevertheless, the Army is pressing on and making the 7.62 mm bullet "environmentally friendly" by 2014 as well.

The Army predicts "the use of green 5.56 mm and 7.62 mm ammunition could eliminate the purchase of 3,683 metric tons of lead between 2013 and 2018."

There won't be any lead anyway!

pardon me for being STUPID, but what good does a "green" bullet do, if it doesn't stop anyone, and what is the stupid thing made of??  I read Copper, but isn't lead needed to make a bullet fatal?  reasoning here is because lead will crush or go through bone, but copper possibly WON'T.....  Maybe I am not thinking correctly on this, but that is what I was always taught (about the ability of lead) and why bullets were made of that substance.....

Bill or CaptMac, I need some good knowledge and you and a few others might actually have it.
