The Blaze: Obama administration purging military commanders?

This would be very hard to believe, but with President Obama? Not hard at all.

 

Nine senior commanding generals have been fired by the Obama administration this year, leading to speculation by active and retired members of the military that a purge of its commanders is underway.

Retired generals and current senior commanders that have spoken with TheBlaze say the administration is not only purging the military of commanders they don’t agree with, but is striking fear in the hearts of those still serving.

The timing comes as the five branches of the U.S. armed forces are reducing staff due to budget cuts, and as U.S. troops are expected to withdraw from Afghanistan next year.

“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 tow the party line. Remember, as (former White House chief of staff) Rahm Emanuel said, never waste a crisis,” a senior retired general told TheBlaze on the condition of anonymity because he still provide services to the government and fears possible retribution.

“Even as a retired general, it’s still possible for the administration to make life miserable for us. If we’re working with the government or have contracts, they can just rip that out from under us,” he said.

Retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely, an outspoken critic of the Obama administration, said the White House fails to take action or investigate its own, but finds it easy to fire military commanders “who have given their lives for their country.”

“Obama will not purge a civilian or political appointee because they have bought into Obama’s ideology,” Vallely said. “The White House protects their own. That’s why they stalled on the investigation into fast and furious, Benghazi and Obamacare. He’s 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.”

The Chicago Way?

 

George Soros loves him some Chris Christie

Christie giving the obligatory “The GOP left me” speech just got a tad closer

TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie is cashing in donations from top Democratic fundraisers and other traditionally liberal donors across the country, even nabbing the support of a handful of rainmakers aligned with President Obama and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a Star-Ledger review of state and federal records shows.

The checks are flying into the Republican governor’s war chest from all sorts of unlikely places — the hedge fund run by liberal billionaire George Soros, for example, and the politically progressive halls of the University of California, Berkeley.

 

 

Another day of pimping tragedies at MSNBS

First up Al “Pimp My Hair” Sharpton

Next, via Weasel Zippers is Ed Schultz

Via Newsbusters:

It seems as though MSNBC’s Ed Schultz has taken Rahm Emanuel’s belief that, “you never want a serious crisis to go to waste” to heart.  Speaking on Monday prior to President Obama’s final press conference of his first term, Schultz disgustingly suggested that the tragedy at Sandy Hook could be “the 9/11 of gun violence.”

Bottom feeders, both of them.

 

Parasitic Leftists In Illinois Push To Give Illegal Aliens Drivers Licenses

Illinois Moves To Grant Licenses To Illegal Immigrants – Washington Times

Top Illinois state officials said Tuesday they’ll push to issue driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants – a move backed also by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who for years stood as Democrats’ key impediment to pushing immigration in Congress.

State Senate President John Cullerton said he’ll try to pass a bill in the legislature’s veto session next week to remove restrictions on illegal immigrants getting licenses there, and Gov. Pat Quinn said he’ll sign it, if it reaches his desk. Both men are Democrats.

The move represents pushback after a decade in which states went the other direction, putting tighter restrictions on driver’s licenses after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The commission that investigated those attacks recommended stricter driver’s license requirements.

Illinois would become the third state to allow illegal immigrants to get licenses, joining Washington and New Mexico.

“I strongly support state legislation that will allow every Chicagoan, regardless of legal status, to enjoy the rights and responsibilities that come with a driver’s license,” Mr. Emanuel, President Obama’s first White House chief of staff, said in a statement.

Liberals want more gun control. Why? So more of America can be like Chicago and New York?

Great point by Bill Quick

» 19 murders overnight in Obama’s home town of Chicago – Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion

19 people were shot in Chicago between Thursday evening and Friday morning, with 13 of the 19 shot in a span of just 30 minutes. Chicago’s murder rate has gone up 31 percent since 2011 when Mayor Rahm Emanuel was elected.

Balance this against the ocean of publicity that will now be focused on a relatively minor (in terms of deadliness) shooting that will get all that publicity because it occurred in a NYC landmark. And then keep in mind that these two cities share some of the strictest gun-grabbing laws in the nation.

BINGO! Of course, we know what the Left really wants, for us to be more like Australia

Who ever said Lesbians do not “fake it”

Hate crime that is. Because damn it, hate crimes are a serious problem, even if nutty Leftists have to make them up. Dan Riehl, with a new look to his blog, tells the tale of deceit by Charlie Rogers, Lesbian, catalyst, and liar

A former University of Nebraska women’s basketball star faked an attack in which she allegedly carved anti-gay slurs into her skin because she felt it would spark change, police said Tuesday.

“So maybe I am too idealistic, but I believe way deep inside me that we can make things better for everyone. I will be a catalyst. I will do what it takes. I will. Watch me,” read the July 18 posting, according to police.

Ah yes, the natural evolution of the Left. Rahm Emanuel is famous for saying never let a good crisis go to waste. Rogers takes that a step, or two farther, by faking a crisis that can then be exploited for “change”. Of course Rogers is not the first Lefty to go this route is she? There have been numerous “racist” incidents that have sparked outrage, that turned out to be fake. And, to be fair, maybe Rogers, and those other Leftist starter kits are just emulating the Sharpton model for self-starting race baiters. And, of course, we all know that many Leftists LOVE to feel like a victim don’t we? This is, in part, why the Democratic tactic of making everyone feel like a victim is so successful.

As I have noted before, if you understand the Left, understand this. When they see by any means necessary, they mean it!

Also, as long as we are talking about the phonies on the Left, let us touch on another manufactured crisis, global warming, er climate change, whatever the Left is calling it this week. At The Other McCain, Stacy McCain notes that climate change zealots fake it too

For my money, the funniest thing in National Review editor Rich Lowry’s reply to global-warming guru Michael Mann is this:

Is it too much to ask that world-renowned climate scientists spend less time on Facebook?

Mann posted a number of enraged Facebook rants because his notorious “hockey stick” graph, projecting a sharp increase in global temperatures caused by CO2 emissions, was brutally mocked by Mark Steyn.

Mann is on the faculty of Penn State, which claimed to have conducted an “investigation” of scientific fraud in Mann’s climate-change studies. Is Mann therefore “the Jerry Sandusky of climate change”? It’s a fair question, said Steyn:

If an institution is prepared to cover up systemic statutory rape of minors, what won’t it cover up?

Since the 2009 release of the ClimateGate e-mails — remember “hide the decline”? — it has become obvious to most lay observers that Mann and his colleagues valued their hypothesis more than they valued facts. Among other things, the ClimateGate e-mails showed that caretakers of the global-warming “consensus” conspired to delegitimize their critics and exclude skeptics from the peer-review process.

Man, aren’t those coincindences crazy things?

Odd, I mean, how some things work out. Today Chick-fil-A suporters are flooding the restaurant, supporting the famed chicken sandwich chain, and BAM! A bomb threat is phoned into a Chick-fil-A. Stacy McCain has details  and ponders is this just a random nut that hates chicken sandwiches?

Maybe somebody just hates chicken sandwiches:
Police and fire crews closed down the Chick-fil-A on Foxcroft Avenue in Martinsburg for nearly three hours following a bomb threat that was called in just before 1 p.m. today.

The caller mentioned that a “device” had been placed within the restaurant. The building was evacuated, but was deemed safe at about 3:45 p.m. after no bomb or any other type of device was discovered.

Martinsburg City Police and the Martinsburg Fire Department personnel investigated the scene, along with Berkeley County Sheriff Kenny Lemaster. A National Park Ranger with a canine unit arrived at the scene at approximately 2:45 p.m. to assist, and a second from the West Virginia State Police arrived later as well.

Let me ask you: Of all the Chick-fil-A’s in America to be targeted with a bomb threat, why this one? Is Berkeley County, W.Va., the kind of place where you would expect such a thing?

More at The Other McCain. My take on who did this is, who knows. A stupid kid with a warped sense of humor? Someone who gets a twisted thrill out of causing such a ruckus? Like I said, who knows, but i do know one thing, I, nor Stacy, nor anyone else I know is pointing the finger of blame at the left. Too bad the Left cannot act in a similar fashion. If the roles in this were reversed, the Left would be jumping to conclusions with both feet!

Of course, the support Chick-fil-A day has been a HUGE success, except for the Left, which is being reminded just how UNPOPULAR their radicalism is. Among the hardest hit? Rahm Emanuel, who is eating a lot of “birds” apparently was wrong about Chick-fil-A NOT meeting the values of Chicago

Donald Douglas has news that Wendys is wading into the debate, and might hurt their bottom line by doing so.

Wendy’s restaurants has stepped in it. See Business Insider, “A Bunch Of Wendy’s Restaurants Put Up Signs That Say ‘We Stand With Chick-Fil-A’.”

Smart move, the locations that put up those signs get it, but, of course, the big wigs at Wendy’s are not that bright, and seem to be more interested in being PC, than in defending free speech from Leftist bullies.

But then they backtracked on Twitter:

@Wendys@RJasonCottrell@ThomasARoberts@tlrd We are looking into this!” Thanks Wendy’s. Look forward to your response@msnbc

@ThomasARoberts@RJasonCottrell@tlrd An independent franchisee posted the sign, which he’s taken down. We proudly serve ALL customers!

ALL costumers? Chick-fil-A serves ALL kind of folks too. Wendys needs to THINK about getting into this, but, like so many others they are deathly afraid of maybe offending someone that is in a “protected class” that they will offend many more people in the pursuit of being PC.

 

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel rips Chick-fil-A but embraces Nation of Islam?

 

Odd, Chicago is too good for evil Chick-fil-A because they support “traditional marriage”. Yet Chicago is OK with partnering with the Nation of Islam, that is opposed to Gay marriage? I guess the NOI’s history of anti-White, and anti-Semitic stances makes it OK with Mayor Rham Emanuel?

Although Farrakhan has a history of making anti-Semitic statements, Chicago’s first Jewish mayor has no interest in revisiting that controversy.

He’s more concerned about reducing a 40 percent surge in Chicago homicides that’s become a media obsession and threatens to undermine his efforts to market Chicago to international tourists.

“People of faith have a role to play and community leaders have a role to play in helping to protect our neighborhoods and our citizens. You cannot get there on just one piece of an anti-crime strategy,” the mayor said.

“The police have a role to play. Tearing down abandoned buildings has a role to play. Shutting liquor stores that are a cancer in the community have a role to play. Community leaders have a role to play. Pastors have a role to play. Principals have a role to play. And most importantly, parents have roles to play. They have decided, the Nation of Islam, to help protect the community. And that’s an important ingredient, like all the other aspects of protecting a neighborhood.”

Ah yes, another case of Liberals being stricken with Consistent Inconsistentitis, as well as Selective Outrage Syndrome. William Jacjobson takes note

Rahm Emanuel is backing an Alderman’s call to block Chick-fil-A:

Rahm Emanuel on Wednesday said he supports a Chicago alderman’s plan to block  the opening of a new Chick-fil-A location in the city because the president  opposes gay marriage….

“They disrespect our fellow neighbors and residents,” Emanuel said. “This would  be a bad investment, since it would be empty.”

Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy said in an interview published July 16 that he is “guilty as  charged” in support of “the biblical definition of the family unit.”

“We are a family-owned business, a family-led business and we are married to  our first wives,” Cathy told Baptist Press.

Would this be the same Chicago which just permitted Louis Farrakan’s Nation of Islam to reopen a restaurant?

The jewel of 79th street is returning with the early July [2012] reopening of the Nation of Islam built Salaam restaurant.

Calvin Hollins, the new executive director, said the $5 million Salaam restaurant will officially reopen for business July 6 and July 7. The reborn Salaam includes three restaurants under one roof: A bakery, the Crescent Café and Fine Dining. That means a choice of coffee and pastries, casual dining, or a special night on the town in the upstairs dining room.

“I think anyone off the street who comes into this facility will find something palatable to their needs and their likes,” said Mr. Hollins.

The facility is for everyone but springs from the mission of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and Nation of Islam and is rooted in the hallmarks of healthy eating, economic self-sufficiency and community building, said Mr. Hollins and executive assistant Carla X. “We are continuing to fulfill what the Hon. Elijah Muhammad established for us,” said Carla X, a Muslim in the Nation of Islam. “It’s not just a restaurant; it’s us doing for self.”

Here’s Louis Farrakhan’s position on marriage:

Minister Louis Farrakhan recently responded to President Obama’s endorsement of gay marriage calling him “the first president that sanctioned what the scriptures forbid,” according to a video posted by the Nation of Islam’s “official” news source, Finalcall.com.

During an address at the California Convention Center on Sunday, the Nation of Islam leader ridiculed the media for its portrayal of Obama after the announcement, and chastised politicians and clergy for hypocritically supporting gay marriage despite the fact that the Bible forbids it.

The truth is the Left is not really upset for one reason. they perceive Chick-fil-A to be a Conservative company, and Conservatives are not allowed, under Liberal doctrine to express political views. The NOI though, is seen as Left Wing, so they can say whatever they wish.

Long Island man busted for ‘pretending’ to be soldier to get first-class upgrade

There is a stolen valor aspect to this story. Here’s a clown who wants people to treat him as if he had the courage to enlist and put his life on the line for his country, when in reality he is a cowardly piece of opportunistic slime that may just be a waste of carbon.

This GI Joe wannabe got a hero’s welcome just by dressing the part.

A Long Island man was arrested for donning an Army uniform and brazenly posing as a soldier so he’d get bumped up to first class on a flight to JFK from the Dominican Republic, Port Authority cops have charged.

Rock Diaz, 22, of Freeport, has a history of pretending to be a military man to get VIP treatment, cops said — he once even smooth-talked his way into a jetliner’s cockpit, where he was photographed sitting at the controls wearing a goofy grin.

The mile-high huckster was finally brought to earth Friday afternoon when a sharp-eyed customs official at JFK asked him his rank — and he gave an answer that didn’t match the insignia on the uniform he was wearing.

Rahm Emanuel: Thwarting Iran is conditional

Conditional as in Israel must make progress in peace talks with Israel’s terrorist neighbors

Thwarting Iran’s nuclear program is conditional on progress in peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, according to White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel

Israeli TV reports said Monday that Emanuel made the comments in a closed-door meeting the previous day with 300 major AIPAC donors.

Last month, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned Israel that it risks losing Arab support for combating threats from Iran if it rejects peace negotiations with the Palestinians.

Clinton said Arab nations had conditioned helping Israel counter Iran on Jerusalem’s commitment to the peace process.

Making peace with the Palestinians? Israel WOULD be at peace if Hamas and Hezbollah would allow it, but they will not allow it. Every time Israel reaches out, they get more attacks for their efforts.

And frankly, shouldn’t stopping Iran from getting nukes be a top priority for this nation no matter what?

H/T Gateway Pundit who also has a video up that illustrates why Iran should be dealt with

This is, of course, untrue, Iran wants no part of Israel, but, they are very emboldened by the weak stance they see the new administration taking. Have Iran’s leaders  convinced themselves that they could attack Israel without fear of the U.S. stepping in? If they have would they be right?

If you want to weigh how much has chjanged since January 20 consider that no one would have wondered about the U.S. committment to Israel under George W. Bush.
