OUR DEPLETED MILITARY

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

 

Congress and Obama Depleted the Military

The Trump budget would increase spending only 3%. With today’s threats, that’s not nearly enough.

North Korea is making alarming progress in its ballistic-missile and nuclear-weapons programs. Russia and China are developing and fielding advanced weapons against which the U.S. may not be able to defend. Al Qaeda operates in more countries than ever. Islamic State is targeting the West and launching attacks throughout Europe and the Middle East. Iran is supporting terrorist organizations across the globe, modernizing its ballistic-missile and other capabilities and likely continuing to pursue nuclear weapons.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told the House Armed Services Committee last week that the U.S. is losing the military edge on which our security has long relied: “Today, every operating domain—including outer space, air, sea, undersea, land and cyberspace—is contested.”

Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, seconded that worry in written testimony for the same hearing: “Without sustained, sufficient and predictable funding,” he wrote, “I assess that within five years we will lose our ability to project power; the basis of how we defend the homeland, advance U.S. interests, and meet our alliance commitments.”

In short, the situation President Trump inherited is dire. America today faces an array of threats more serious and complex than at any time in the past 75 years.

HOW THE MILITARY RATES OBAMA’S LEGACY

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

 

Please note that this article from the Military Times was written on January 8, 2017 at the very end of Obama’s term of office.  Nancy
HOW THE MILITARY RATES OBAMA’S LEGACY
By Leo Shane III and George R. Altman    January 8, 2017
President Barack Obama will step down after eight years as commander in chief with one of the most influential tenures leading the U.S. military, but not necessarily the political support of service members. 

His moves to slim down the armed forces, move away from traditional military might and overhaul social policies prohibiting the service of minority groups have proven divisive in the ranks. His critics have accused him of trading a strong security posture for political points, and for allowing the rise of terrorists like the Islamic State group whom the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were supposed to silence.

But Obama’s supporters define him as the Nobel Peace Prize winner who ordered the elimination of Osama bin Laden and refocused military strategy while wrestling with an uncooperative Congress and unprecedented budget restrictions. They insist the military is more nimble now, and more prepared to deal with unconventional warfare against non-traditional threats across the globe.

More than half of troops surveyed in the latest Military Times/Institute for Veterans and Military Families poll said they have an unfavorable opinion of Obama and his two-terms leading the military. About 36 percent said they approve of his job as commander in chief. 

Their complaints include the president’s decision to decrease military personnel (71 percent think it should be higher), his moves to withdraw combat troops from Iraq (59 percent say it made America less safe) and his lack of focus on the biggest dangers facing America (64 percent say China represents a significant threat to the U.S.)

RUSH LIMBAUGH: OBAMA ACTUALLY DID WHAT TRUMP IS ACCUSED OF DOING

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

 

As always, Rush can be counted on to give a detailed analysis of what is actually going on in the world of politics !   Be sure to read down to where Rush gives a quote from an article that Andrew McCarthy wrote in April of 20016 re Obama protecting Hillary and clearing her in  the 2016 campaign regarding her  “careless” handling of intelligence.  (McCarthy’s letter is highlighted in black)    Nancy

Rush Limbaugh: Obama Actually Did What Trump Is Accused of Doing

Wednesday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh argued former President Barack Obama “actually did” what New York Times report has accused President Donald Trump of doing regarding an FBI investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

According to Limbaugh, Obama had the FBI back off of an investigation into Hillary Clinton.

Partial transcript as follows (courtesy RushLimbaugh.com):

All right, here’s (among many things) what’s going on. Here’s what Trump is alleged to have done here vis-a-vis the Comey memo. Comey memo says that Trump asked him to let it go. Let the Flynn investigation go. I can hope you see your way to let this go. He didn’t do anything. The guy… I love the guy, honest guy. Comey said, “Yeah, I can tell you honest guy, good guy.” And what Trump is alleged to have done is actually no different than what Barack Obama did in April last year when he made it known that he didn’t want Hillary prosecuted.

In fact, the Obama situation is actually worse. While Trump indicated he didn’t want Flynn charged, he did not order the case dropped, because it’s still going on. Trump indicated that he wanted Flynn not to be charged, but he did not order the case to be dropped. And the case continues. Grand juries have been impaneled now. In contrast, the FBI and the Department of Justice dropped the Hillary investigation just as Obama wanted them to, and they used exactly the rationales Obama used when he made his public statements.

TRUMP: ASSASSINATION BY LEAKS

Trump: Assassination By Leak

 

by Dick Morris May 17, 2017

 

Lee Harvey Oswald hid behind the sixth-floor window of the Dallas Book Depository Building as he aimed his rifle at JFK.  But, hiding in the grassy knoll ahead was at least one other hidden assassin closing in for the kill shot.  It was the first anonymous assassination of a president in US history.  Donald Trump is in danger of becoming the second.  His assassins use words not bullets and hide behind the First Amendment, not the grassy knoll.

Every single story attacking Trump, every leaked memo, every intercepted communication, every rumored exchange is reported to the media by anonymous sources.  Death by leaking is a particularly Washington spin on the MO of the Salem Witch Trials.  Instead of hysterical girls claiming to be possessed by the devil, we have hidden bureaucrats and intelligence operatives who claim to have seen, overheard, or secretly read of the most villainous kind of presidential malfeasance.

This is a particularly offensive form of a kangaroo court.  There is no opportunity to confront — or even know the name of — one’s accusers.  No right to see evidence.  No chance for cross examination.  No exploration of motives. Just accusation and suspicion.

To try to hobble or even impeach a popularly elected president by a death of a thousand leaks is an outrageous threat to democracy and we must not let it happen.

Consider this week’s three scandals:

MOCKING JOHN F. KENNEDY

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

 

THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Mocking John F. Kennedy

Barack Obama is honored for his ‘Profile in Courage’

March 6, 2017

The John F. Kennedy Library Foundation had a momentous announcement on March 2. The foundation would honor Barack Obama, who was off on a shopping excursion with Michelle at the time, with the JFK prize for “elevating the standard of political courage in a new century.”

Mr. Obama’s presidency, the foundation said, “consistently reflected in so many ways, big and small, the definition of courage” articulated by JFK in his Pulitzer Prize-winning 1957 book, “Profiles in Courage.”

So what courageous events in Mr. Obama’s presidency attracted such admiration of the judges? They cited Obamacare, which is now collapsing all around us; his deal with Iran, which preserved the mullahs’ program for developing a nuclear bomb, and returned $150 billion in assets frozen abroad, and his rapprochement with Cuba, for which the United States received nothing in return, not even repatriation of criminal fugitives.

The Profile in Courage award has lost whatever remaining cachet and credibility it had, and dishonors Mr. Kennedy, whose personal courage in combat in the South Pacific during World War II and his political courage in standing up to the Soviet Russians at the nadir of the Cold War, is the stuff of legend (though it was not legend, but real). The prize survives as a trophy awarded to liberals by liberals. The JFK prize now joins the Nobel Peace Prize in Mr. Obama’s umbrella and overshoes closet in his fortified mansion in Kalorama, awarded for doing nothing only 10 months after he was inaugurated.

DEMOCRATS TURN AGAINST ISRAEL

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

 

Finally, a few Democrats are starting to question their party’s turn to the Far Left’s ideology.   Nancy

Democrats Turn Against Israel

In 1972 ours was the first party to back moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

Rep. Keith Ellison’s selection as deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee is the latest ratification of our party’s turn away from Israel. Mr. Ellison, who complained in 2010 that “United States foreign policy in the Middle East is governed by what is good or bad through a country of seven million people,” narrowly lost a bid for DNC chairman, then was chosen by acclamation as deputy.

The Democrats used to be the pro-Israel party. President Truman recognized the Jewish state within minutes of its independence in 1948. In 1972 the convention that nominated George McGovern ratified the first major-party platform to support moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. The Republicans didn’t follow until 1996.

A lot has changed for the Democrats in 45 years. President Obama created an atmosphere of outright hostility between the U.S. and Israel. He made a nuclear deal with Iran and refused to veto the United Nations Security Council resolution in December that condemned settlements in the disputed West Bank.

HOW OBAMA IS SCHEMING TO SABOTAGE TRUMP’S PRESIDENCY

Tuesday, February 14th, 2017

 

Once a Community Organizer, always a Community Organizer !   Be sure to  scroll down below the first article to read the second article where Obama tells his supporters not to lose hope and promises them that he will return to be a Community Organizer.     Nancy
THE NEW YORK POST
Paul Sperry is the author of “The Great American Bank Robbery,” which details the link between race-based housing policies and the mortgage crisis.
When former President Barack Obama said he was “heartened” by anti-Trump protests, he was sending a message of approval to his troops. Troops? Yes, Obama has an army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.
In what’s shaping up to be a highly unusual post-presidency, Obama isn’t just staying behind in Washington. He’s working behind the scenes to set up what will effectively be a shadow government to not only protect his threatened legacy, but to sabotage the incoming administration and its popular “America First” agenda.
He’s doing it through a network of leftist nonprofits led by Organizing for Action. Normally you’d expect an organization set up to support a politician and his agenda to close up shop after that candidate leaves office, but not Obama’s OFA. Rather, it’s gearing up for battle, with a growing war chest and more than 250 offices across the country.
Since Donald Trump’s election, this little-known but well-funded protesting arm has beefed up staff and ramped up recruitment of young liberal activists, declaring on its website, “We’re not backing down.” Determined to salvage Obama’s legacy, it’s drawing battle lines on immigration, ObamaCare, race relations and climate change.
Obama is intimately involved in OFA operations and even tweets from the group’s account. In fact, he gave marching orders to OFA foot soldiers following Trump’s upset victory.
“It is fine for everybody to feel stressed, sad, discouraged,” he said in a conference call from the White House. “But get over it.” He demanded they “move forward to protect what we’ve accomplished.”
“Now is the time for some organizing,” he said. “So don’t mope.”

OBAMA POURED $9.2 BILLION INTO U.N. IN FINAL YEAR IN OFFICE

Sunday, February 5th, 2017

Obama poured $9.2B into U.N. in final year

Obama speaking at G20 Nov2015Former President Barack Obama poured at least $9.2 billion of American taxpayers’ money into the United Nations and its agencies during his last year in office.

The State Department recently disclosed the amount via a document it posted on its website that provides a summary of U.S. government spending outlaid to international organizations.

Funding the global community more and more

The total of $9.2 billion is an increase of approximately 20 percent, compared to the $7.7 billion the Obama administration’s State Department paid out in 2010 – the year the White House quickly stopped reporting on its total spending in support of the U.N.

A huge percentage of the Obama administration’s payments to global agencies went to the U.N. – which has come under fire of late for its admitted anti-Israel policies.

“The overall U.S. bill for international organizations of every stripe is just under $10.5 billion, meaning that U.N. organizations absorb about 88 per cent of such U.S. government spending,” Fox News reported. “The new tally includes nearly $360 million for the controversial United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East, or UNRWA, which is regularly accused of inculcating violent anti-Israel attitudes and even abetting terrorist attacks on Israel, which it strongly denies. That is nearly a 50 per cent jump over the $238.3 million UNRWA got from the U.S. in 2010.”

In an early attempt to stem the Obama administration’s last-ditch effort to spend U.S. tax dollars on pro-Muslim interests abroad, President Donald Trump froze his predecessor’s attempt to give a $221-million donation designated to help the Palestinian Authority reach its goal to become its own state.

It is reported that the Trump administration will continue to look to cut back the excessive spending that Obama directed toward the U.N. and its global agenda.
