I will be the first one to say that I am glad that we are out of Iraq. I supported the effort,regardless of the arguments. That said, I see no reason what so ever why we need to reduce our military to the size that Obama wants. It will be a mistake. Defense Secretary said the following “The changes won’t come without risk” but Panetta called the risks acceptable. How can anyone call almost half a Trillion in military cuts acceptable?To Risky!
In my opinion, when the Security of our Nation is at risk, there is not one thing worth the risk. Our National Security is paramount. We now have a Secretary of defense calling our reduction of our military comes with risks and a President that says we can absorb another 9/11 styled attack. Does anyone other than me see anything that is wrong with those two statements, or is it just me be paranoid?
We should not hesitate when it come to securing our nation. However, Obama has demonstrated time and time again that the Security borders and the Security of this Nation is NOT, at the top of his agenda. Obama is on record as saying that our Nation can “absorb another 911 style attack.” Certainly we can absorb another 911 attack, what choice would we have as a nation but to absorb the attack. The comment made by Obama just shows you exactly how insensitive he is as a person, and how ignorant and stupid he is as a President. Now lets take into consider what happened after 9/11
- Americans lost a complete sense of their personal security.
- The target of our foreign policy changed.
- The Patriot act was passed. (which was fine by me in the first place.) I has nothing to hide.
- because of the 9/11 attacks, we invaded and occupied two countries. (Iraq/Afghanistan)
- My personal favorite; The TSA was created. The most impotent agency ever created.
- Pistol toting Sky Marshals now on flights
- 22 different agencies and 180,000 employees combined into one gigantic Agency, lead by one ignorant secretary; “The Department of Homeland Security” good agency, terrible boss.
- Global manhunt for Al-Qaeda
- Now most people have developed a great feeling of uneasiness toward Muslims, including yours truly. Most Americans, including ME, just despise the Idea of a Muslim community center next door to ground zero. I see it as Muslims calling it their TROPHY.
I can see that America can absorb another 9/11 attack………again I will say that the statement made by Obama is no doubt one of the most IGNORANT statements ever made by a sitting president of the United States, that’s how I see it. Now if that statement does not get your dander up, how about all of the Military cuts Obama is trying to make. So here we go….The cuts got my attention, I hope they get yours.
“Both Panetta and Dempsey said they anticipate heavy criticism of their new strategy, which was begun last spring by then-Defense Secretary Robert Gates after Obama called for defense spending cuts. The Pentagon now faces at least $487 billion in cuts in planned defense spending over 10 years.”$487 BILLION dollars in cuts in planned cuts, that makes me sick to my stomach just thinking about it. what in the hell is going to be left for Gods sake. What is being said by Obama’s administration? Well it seems that they are using the national debt as an excuse by saying the money crisis merely forced the Government’s hand.
I agree with that assertion, it was the money crisis; However….Obama apparently did not care about the money crisis as he ballooned our NATIONAL DEBT from 8.7 trillion to $15 Trillion in less than 3 years into a 4 year term. So if he wins re-election simple math has the national debt at $30 Trillion by the 6th year of his 8 year term.
He already has the distinction of being the very first President of the United States to have a Nation Debt that exceeds the American GDP, now put that in your pipe and smoke it. Yes I know I will be bombarded with “It is all George Bushes Fault, Obama is just fixing everything.”
I can not tell you how many times I hear that bogus line.
All Obama is doing is PANDERING to the voters at the expense of The National Security of this country. Obama could give a damn about the security of this. country, all he is doing is showing that he can and will dismantle the United States Military, one leg at a time. It is in my opinion, criminal. Obama has shown that he does not care about our
own national borders, as he as left the northern and southern borders wide open, and has ordered the release of hundreds of illegal aliens pending a hearing and order agents not to arrest.
(CNSNews.com) – Chris Crane, president of a union that represents Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, testified in the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration last week that ICE agents have been told by ICE headquarters not to arrest illegal aliens who do not have a prior criminal conviction even if they are fugitives who have been ordered deported by an immigration judge or are individuals who have illegally re-entered the United States after being deported and thus have perpetrated a felony.
“Aliens who could not be arrested included but were not limited to ICE fugitives that had been ordered deported by a federal immigration judge as well as aliens who had illegally re-entered the United States after deportation, a federal felony,” Crane, who is also an active-ICE officers and agents also alleged that they were not permitted to arrest or even speak to confirmed or suspected illegal aliens encountered in the field during operations and were prohibited from running standard criminal record checks for wants and warrants,” Crane testified. Crane had previously testified about the matter in the subcommittee in late July.
“When I last testified before the subcommittee on July 25, 2011, I reported among other things that ICE enforcement removal officers and agents in the field alleged that unwritten directives from ICE headquarters had been issued nationwide ordering officers not to arrest aliens unless it was confirmed that the alien had received a prior conviction for a criminal offense,” Crane told the committee last week.
Since his July testimony, he said, his union has been working with the Judiciary Committee on the issue. duty ICE agent, told the committee on Oct. 12.
What message does the above captioned paragraph tell you? it tells the ICE agents to NOT PERFORM their sworn duties, and that is to protect against any enemy foreign or domestic. So the Federal Agents are being told to violate their their Oath of Office. As I see it, I personally would continue to arrest, I would take the order given by the President as an illegal order, as he is instructing me to turn my back on a criminal violation, therefore, I would be violating the law, I swore to uphold the law, not violate it, therefore I would not do it. So I get fired, then it goes to a law suit, So What. I also truly believe that Barack Obama and Eric Holder are both breaking the law by issuing illegal orders.
We are in serious trouble, we have a President and Attorney General who are violating the law, and not abiding by the constitution. Barack Hussein Obama is a liar to say the least. He campaigned that he would maintain a TRANSPARENT ADMINISTRATION. He has dodne the exact opposite. He said that he would post all legislation on the internet for 5 days, so that the American public could view it…he lied. He has lied about his birth records as well. Obama will lie when the truth sounds better. What are we to believe. Obama has now surpassed his lying with ordering Federal Agents to break the law by issuing orders to I.C.E. Agents to not arrest.
I will close in saying again we are in serious serious trouble. as it stands right now, the United States stands ranked as the number 1 Military in the world, however Russia and China are closing the gap in short order, I will try and have my post out sometime this week or by the weekend on where we stand in the world NOW. With all of the cuts that Obama has indicated he will make, so far a little over $480 million dollars have been promised, that is just shy of a half of a TRILLION DOLLARS that is a huge bite out of the budget of the worlds number 1 military, this is an unacceptable amount, I will leave you with this to chew on:
“The president of the United States wants to cut approximately 100,000 men and women out of our military,” McCain said before introducing Romney. “My friends, this is a dangerous world we live in. The cuts that the president of the United States wants to make are unconscionable, unnecessary and frankly would put this nation at greater risk. This president leads from behind. Mitt Romney, like Ronald Reagan, will lead from in front.”
Is this something you want to live with…not me my friend, I want to know that my borders are safe, my military is STRONG AND SOUND, Obama’s approach will completely rip the guts out of the once strong and the most feared Military in the World, that was until Obama took over.
Remember this, these Military cuts will leave the United States of America in GRAVE DANGER……..
