The Sorry State of Our Military: Is It Happenstance or Design?

Published

on

How it must have pained Marine Corps General John Paxton to tell Congress that his service might not be prepared for war. Last week, the Assistant Commandant, who has racked up 42 of honorable military service, candidly admitted to the Senate Armed Services Committee that the US Marine Corps isn’t what it used to be. “I worry about the capability and the capacity to win in a major fight somewhere else right now,” said the general. He fretted over inadequate training and equipment particularly in the fields of communications, intelligence, and aviation.

Cynics might see Paxton’s testimony as a plea for more money, a quantity that isn’t usually forthcoming when no obvious shortcomings can be identified. Yet this rebuttal strikes me as an out-of-hand dismissal of Paxton’s concerns. It would also be uncharacteristic of the Marines, undoubtedly the proudest of the services, to denigrate themselves if it weren’t true. When a senior Marine officer describes the Corps as borderline dysfunctional, I believe him.

Nor is the Marine Corps alone in its negative self-assessment. Army Chief of Staff Mark Milley told Congress that his branch is prepared to do battle with ISIS—and no other potential adversary. The US would probably lose a war with China, according to General Milley. Or with Russia, North Korea, or Iran. According to an Associated Press article: “Mark Milley says years of combat in Iraq and Afghanistan, constrained budgets and troop cuts have had a cumulative effect on the service.” Essentially, our military is capable of defeating the guys Obama described as the JV team but not a conventional force of any heft. Pathetic.

How’s the Air Force faring? If recent trends are any indicator, it may soon be incapable of fulfilling its raison d’être—air superiority. It’s been a very long time since America has gone to war without first asserting absolute dominion over the sky. Air superiority will probably be more difficult to establish in coming years as other nations, particularly China and Russia, fortify their air defenses with new technologies while we continue to fly 1970’s-era F-15s and F-16s as our primary fighters.

Air Force General Frank Gorenc, who commands NATO Allied Air Command, US Air Forces Europe and US Air Forces Africa, is not confident that US forces will be able to achieve and maintain air superiority in future conflicts. “The advantage that we had from the air, I can honestly say, is shrinking. . . . This is not just a Pacific problem. It’s as significant in Europe as it is anywhere else on the planet . . . . I don’t think it’s controversial to say [Russia has] closed the gap in capability.”

I don’t believe that any of these generals—Paxton, Milley, or Gorenc—takes pride in admitting this sorry state of affairs because it is essentially an admission of failure. Duty nonetheless dictates that they tell it like it is. They’re playing with the hand they were dealt and I doubt anyone else could do it better.

It doesn’t help that their commander-in-chief pretends not to hear what they’re saying. Just two months ago, President Obama delivered a State of the Union address in which he pooh-poohed the very idea that our armed forces are languishing in disrepair. Said Obama: “I told you earlier all the talk of America’s economic decline is political hot air. Well, so is all the rhetoric you hear about our enemies getting stronger and America getting weaker. The United States of America is the most powerful nation on Earth. Period. It’s not even close. We spend more on our military than the next eight nations combined.” (Emphasis added.)

What a dolt. Surely he can’t believe that our military’s combat effectiveness can be measured in dollars spent? The measure of any endeavor is always results. His argument reminds me that, once upon a time, Mr. Obama was just a left-wing community activist. He still sounds like one.

Didn’t President Obama consult his top military leaders before including that remark in his speech? If he had they would have told him what they told Congress last week—namely, that the military is woefully unprepared. If we rule out the possibility that he’s never had such a conversation with the brass then we must conclude that he flippantly dismissed what they told him, probably with the same nifty factoid about military expenditures that he used at the State of the Union. Obama clearly didn’t listen to his advisors because they told him something he didn’t want to hear.

Or is there another possibility? Could it be that this president knows quite well how much the military has atrophied under his administration and he’s pleased with it? In order to prove such a claim definitively I would have to get into his mind to determine his true motives, which I obviously can’t do. There’s nothing in his public statements to indicate a hostility toward the military, though there’s enough anecdotal evidence to indicate a casual disrespect, such as his now infamous latte salute and the completely unreasonable rules of engagement he imposed on combat troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. This is a man with no military experience and it shows.

He’s also the president who opened all combat positions to women. That alone would have been a mistake but of course his administration exerted downward pressure to get women into elite units such as the Army Rangers without actually requiring them to meet standards. After two women “passed” the Ranger course this summer, it came to light that they had received special assistance and unlimited opportunities to reattempt portions of the course that they had failed. “We were under huge pressure to comply,” said one Ranger instructor. “It was very much politicized.”

It seems that Obama likes the military only as a production line for historic “firsts” that he can take credit for. He’s the guy who gave us the first two female Rangers and the first openly homosexual service secretary, Eric K. Fanning. Just last week Obama nominated another “first”—the first female combatant commander, Air Force General Lori Robinson. I’m not necessarily saying that General Robinson is unqualified for the job though the fact that she was nominated by Obama, a man of unspeakably poor judgement, suggests that she’s probably a hot mess. I am however saying that if she’s truly the best candidate for the job then her sex shouldn’t matter. But to Barack Obama, it matters quite a bit because her nomination provided another “first” for his presidential legacy. Isn’t that what the military is for?

If you want to know what Barack Obama thinks about the military, look to the man he claimed as a mentor in his first memoir “Dreams From My Father”—Frank Marshall Davis, a card-carrying member of the Communist Party. Davis first became a member of the CPUSA during the Stalin era, as well as during the time of the Comintern when all communist parties around the globe met periodically in Moscow to receive their marching orders. Davis was a determined opponent of US foreign policy, especially the Marshall Plan and NATO, and he hated the US military which he saw as a global force for evil. To believe that the president doesn’t share even a hint of this hostility toward our armed forces is to say that Barack the protégé learned nothing from Frank the mentor, a conclusion I find plainly absurd.

If that doesn’t convince you, look at some of his other influences, such as his pastor, the anti-American firebrand Jeremiah Wright, as well as his heroes Saul Alinsky, Desmond Tutu, and the communist terrorist Nelson Mandela. Obama has always admired people who hate US military power but we’re supposed to believe that he doesn’t.

Our military has fallen on tough times and it will be up to the next president to rehabilitate it. Whether the harm that has befallen our military is the result of mere neglect or actual malfeasance is difficult to determine though I wouldn’t rule out the latter.

FBI Raided Wasserman-Schultz’s House After She’s Tied To Dead Body On Beach – Make Unbelievable Find

Published

on

Ever since Trump got into office, liberals continue to prove how far they’re willing go in order to bury their dirty secrets. Members of the DNC will simply kill off whoever stands in the way of their agenda, as evidenced by the body of lawyer Beranton J. Whisenant Jr. washing up on a Florida beach back in May. As Wasserman-Schultz’s continues to be investigated for her possible role in the man’s murder since Whisenant Jr. was set to expose Wasserman-Schultz’s fraud and visa case in Florida, now the former DNC chair has another nightmare on her hands after what the FBI just found after conducting a massive raid at her home.

Body of Beranton J. Whisenant Jr. washed up on a beach back in May right before set to expose Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s scandal

Several months back, a highly-disturbing Muslim spy ring was discovered at the White House, led by 3 brothers who were hired by Wasserman-Schultz to do IT work for Congress. The 3 Muslim brothers, Abid, Imran and Jamal Awan, were busted for stealing top secret information from Congressmen’s laptops, and then copying it to an external hard drive outside of the White House. Since the bust, a criminal investigation by U.S. Capitol Hill law enforcement has been underway, although no arrests have yet to be made. Now we’re learning startling information of how Wasserman-Schultz is not only helping these Muslim terrorists get away with their crimes, but has been keeping the seized hard drives at her home so she could later give the top secret stolen intel back to the Muslims! The Daily Caller reported:

“Pakistani-born Imran Awan, long-time right-hand IT aide to the former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman, has since desperately tried to get the hard drives back, the individual told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.

A high-level congressional source, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the probe, confirmed that the FBI has joined what Politico previously described as a Capitol Police criminal probe into ‘serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network’ by Imran and three of his relatives, who had access to the emails and files of the more than two dozen House Democrats who employed them on a part-time basis.”

During the raid, Capitol Police seized smashed computers and hard drives from Wasserman-Shultz’s home that had previously belonged to the Muslim IT administrator. It’s not clear whether Wasserman-Shultz had smashed the devices as a way to destroy evidence or bury her ties to the Muslim terrorists, but the former DNC congresswoman is no doubt in serious legal trouble after being in possession of the items during the raid. The Daily Caller went on:

“Capitol Police have also seized computer equipment tied to the Florida lawmaker.

Awan’s younger brothers, Abid and Jamal, his wife, Hina Alvi, and Rao Abbas, Imran’s best friend, are also under investigation. There have been no arrests in the case.

There is also evidence of financial schemes that extend beyond the Capitol Police’s purview and may expand to Pakistan, where Imran spends significant portions of the year.”

It’s unbelievable to comprehend why Wasserman-Schultz would commit treason against the United States by aiding and abetting our enemies, but many are beginning to suspect that the Muslim brothers have been blackmailing members of Congress with whatever information they stole from the Congressmen’s laptops. “Congressional aides also feared politicians were being blackmailed by the Pakistani IT suspects in security breach,” The Gateway Pundit reported.

Fox News anchor Maria Bartiromo was the first person to break the story about the Muslim brother spy ring at the White House, where she discussed exactly what’s at stake now that America’s secrets are now in the possession of these Muslim IT workers, all who have ties with the Muslim Brotherhood and had for months been funneling our secrets to possible terrorists outside the United States, thanks to Wasserman-Schultz.

“They [the Muslims] were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives on Thursday because they accessed Congressmen and Congress people’s computer networks unauthorized,”  Bartiromo began. “At a minimum they were fired. At a minimum we know that they accessed computers unauthorized and they did so in foreign intelligence, foreign affairs and intelligence committees….  they were getting very important information, government information. They accessed these computers.

It’s highly disturbing how all of the DNC’s scandals keep pointing straight back to Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. Her antics began during the election as she was busted for helping Hillary Clinton rig the primary election against Bernie Sanders. After being fired and removed as the DNC chair, not only is Wasserman-Schultz now being tied to the murder of Beranton J. Whisenant Jr. who was investigating her for her fraud and visa case in Florida, but now she’s been caught red-handed for trying to destroy computers and hard drives directly tying her to Muslim Brotherhood terrorists at the White House! All Muslims that SHE hired to “do IT work!”

Share this story and help expose this corruption! This is absolutely sick!

Obama Named As DEADLIEST President in U.S. History After FBI Releases His Horrific Secret

Published

on

Ever since Trump got into office, Obama has been doing everything in his power to sabotage Trump’s presidency with his little shadow government. Not satisfied with peacefully riding his golf cart into the sunset, Obama has been behind the scenes planning his “political comeback” where he’s been popping up all over D.C. to hold fundraisers and international events. But just as Obama was getting ready for his big power move on Trump, the FBI has just released their annual summary for 2016, and what they’ve discovered about Obama is a devastating blow to not only his legacy, but to any future political plans he might have had for this country.

Each year, the FBI releases their annual summary known as the “Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted Report.” On Monday, the report for 2016 was finalized with the findings being sent to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The report revealed that the Obama Administration was the deadliest in history as there was a 61% INCREASE in murders targeting  law enforcement, thanks to Barack Obama continually putting a target on the backs of our police with his race-baiting antics and vocal support for the terror group Black Lives Matter.

The Blacksphere reported:

Monday, the FBI finalized their annual summary known as the “Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted Report.”  As Sessions put it, the 61% increase in murders targeting law enforcement is both shocking and unacceptable. Of course, we knew Obama’s Administration painted police as the enemy. Now it’s indisputable.

Breitbart breaks down the numbers even further:

The feloniously killed category is a narrow one. Sixty-two of those 66 officers died of gunshot wounds, with the last four dying after being hit by motor vehicles. The 66 officers feloniously killed in the line of duty in 2016 is the highest single-year figure since 1997.

The single most common category of officer slaying and the largest increase recorded was the 17 “ambush” type premeditated killings in 2016, a 142 percent increase over the seven such attacks in 2015. Breitbart News has reported extensively on these attacks, the most egregious of which left five Dallas, Texas, policemen dead after a black nationalist opened fire at a July 2016 Black Lives Matter rally.

An additional 52 officers died in accidents while on duty, for a total of 118 line-of-duty deaths, a 37 percent increase over 2015.

The number of assaults on officers also increased significantly in 2016, with over 57,000 recorded nationwide. This figure represents a 14 percent increase over 2015 and a rate of more than 150 a day and nearly one assault for every ten police officers in the country.

These devastating deaths on our police officers are directly due to Obama who encouraged his thugs to go to war with all those who serve and protect. How many times did we witness Obama making incendiary remarks while sending his race-baiting minions to hotbeds like Ferguson to drum up the racial discontent and hatred even further? “Obama spent 8 years stoking the flames of a racial divide that for the most part had been relegated to the 60’s. Seeing the potential for Leftist profiteering, both politically and financially, Obama encouraged hatred, particularly against law enforcement,” The Blacksphere reported.

The bright side is that President Trump is turning things around for our nation’s police. Breitbart continued:

Attorney General Sessions was confident President Trump’s law-and-order agenda could bring the increase, which occurred under the previous administration, under control. “Our law enforcement deserves the support of the people they serve. Fortunately we have a President who understands this,” he said. “President Trump ran for office as a law-and-order candidate; now he is governing as a law-and-order President.”

Within days of taking office, President Trump made it clear that he stood on the side of America’s police with the first executive order that he put into motion. In his first order, he declared that his administration would serve to “enhance the protection and safety of Federal, State, tribal, and local law enforcement officers, and thereby all Americans.”

Within just the first 10 months that Trump has been in office, he has delivered on the promise to support our law enforcement and enhance their ability to do their jobs. So far, police deaths have already decreased by 20%, but the official numbers won’t be released until sometime next year.

It’s wonderful to finally have a president in office who supports law and order and has the backs of our brave men and women who daily defend that “thin blue line” that keeps our society from falling into complete chaos. As for Obama, he has another feather to add to his “legacy” cap with the embarassing statistic from the FBI that his administration was the deadliest in U.S. history!

BREAKING: Homeland Security On HIGH ALERT After Who Just Went Missing Within The U.S. And It’s BAD

Published

on

One-hundred-and-fifty people brought to the U.S. for military training have gone absent without leave (AWOL) and they could be dangerous. Over ten of them are missing and could be lurking anywhere in America. The people brought over are Afghan troops who were supposed to receive training, but since arriving as far back as 2005, they’ve gone AWOL or vanished completely. Some live as illegal immigrants. Other’s haven’t been found at all. There’s at least 13 still missing and it doesn’t seem like anyone has any leads on their whereabouts.

A major part of the problem is that the imported soldiers don’t go through an interview process nor are they required to register as an alien upon their arrival in the United States. It’s reported, by Washington Post, that people usually go through the interview and alien registration process, but it seems like the Afghan troops are exempt from both procedures.

The Washington Times reported:

More than 150 Afghan troops brought to the U.S. for military training have gone AWOL since 2005, with 13 of them still unaccounted for and perhaps living as here illegal immigrants now, an inspector general said in a new report Friday.
Part of the problem is that the U.S. never puts the trainees through an in-person interview and exempts them from registering as aliens when they arrive — both steps that other visitors would normally have to go through.


In-person interviews and requiring the troops to register beforehand would help the government gauge whether someone is likely to go absent without leave, and would give immigration officers information about relatives in the U.S. as starting points when someone does go AWOL, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction said.

But the State Department rejected those suggestions.


The audit said that while no acts of terrorism have yet been traced to the trainees, immigration agents say they’re worried because a number who go AWOL end up trying to claim asylum in the U.S., stymieing any national security investigation into their behavior.
Beyond the potential danger, American taxpayers also miss out on the investment in the troops

There’s two main concerns when troops from other countries go missing without leave. The first problem is that they could be dangerously lurking in the country and no one really knows who they are or where they’re at. That’s potentially dangerous in terms of terrorism or other forms of attacks. It’s quoted above as there not being any acts of terrorism linked to trainees, which is good. It makes sense for the trainees who went AWOL to not commit any crime if they simply came here to secretly start a new life in asylum.

The second problem is that money has been wasted bringing them here and then needing to find replacements as necessary. It’s not cheap to fly people from Afghanistan to America, so imagine how many extra flights there may have been thanks to people going missing and our government not having much of an idea of where they are, who they’re with, or what they’re doing.

The Washington Times went on:

Investigators identified 152 Afghan trainees who have gone absent without leave under the training program. Seventy of them fled the U.S., 39 managed to obtain legal status here, three returned to duty, 27 were arrested and put in deportation proceedings, and 13 remain unaccounted for.


The largest number disappeared from training at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, but four went AWOL from training in D.C., three disappeared from Quantico, Virginia, and one from Arlington.


The State Department and Homeland Security said they don’t think there’s a reason to be concerned.


State officials said they don’t want to do in-person interviews before issuing visas to Afghan troops, and said they’re not convinced of the importance of full registration either.

It’s slightly bizarre to see Afghan soldiers fly to America, then flee the country. Almost 40 Afghan troops gained legal status in America, which is great because they followed the laws – thank you for that. Learning that 3  soldiers returned to duty is very noble and let’s hope they remain loyal to the job they signed up for.

What is definitely alarming is that State officials do not want interviews or full registration. That doesn’t make much sense if you ask a regular everyday person. When your country brings soldiers from another country over for training, and they start disappearing, then it’s time to take roll more effectively than ever. One simply does not permit random people into their country and not keep tabs on them.

Call it crazy, but they may want to consider the interviews and full interviews with which one might determine the soldier is bound to haul off once they hit pay dirt in America.

Should there be more strict vetting upon everyone entering the country? For the people who are against extreme vetting – how would you ensure someone entering American is safe to have as an overnight guest?
