When I asked my colleague the Army Colonel why he thinks Obama is doing this, the reply I received from this lifelong soldier and Army leader shocked me.
Paraphrasing him, this is what he told me in a nutshell.
He said, most branches of the service routinely engage in war “games” and come up with strategies and tactics on how to handle every type of military conflict and scenario that can be imagined . One of the big new battle scenarios being actively discussed in the military recently is how to handle civil unrest in the U.S. and fighting in the streets. What will the Army do if called in to fight armed civilians in the streets of the United States? How will that urban warfare be conducted? Will troops be able to fire upon other American citizens when the troops take an oath to protect American citizens?
He said many in the military are discussing the very real possibility that Obama will attempt to stay in office beyond two terms. It is being speculated that Obama will do this by declaring a state of martial law. The easiest way to declare martial law is when there is massive civil unrest and riots throughout the U.S. Thus, it is believed that Obama, and his regime, will intentionally create a situation of massive civil unrest. Some believe he has already started to implement that strategy by forcing Obamacare on everyone (when the populace did not ask for it and less than 300 people in power voted for it). Perhaps the Obama Administration is not too concerned over the totally dysfunctional Obamacare web site and the additional fact that millions will be dropped from their existing insurance policies which they already had and liked. The Obama Administration may not care if getting health care becomes more difficult and more expensive because it is all leading toward civil unrest. It is believed by some that Obamacare will only get worse and worse, and then in 2 to 3 years when people have a very difficult time getting medical treatment for themselves or their loved ones, people will get enraged.
Moreover, it is being speculated that around the same time when the frustration levels over Obamacare are hitting a critical point in 2 to 3 years, there will be a “glitch” in the welfare payment (or EBT) payment system. The tens of millions who rely on EBT handouts to sustain themselves will be cut off. The overwhelming majority of the EBT recipients are Black. The Obama regime will then blame the “glitch” on the Republicans, i.e., Republicans froze government spending which “forced” Obama to suspension of EBT payments. (Obama will intentionally drive spending up and up uncontrolled knowing full well that one day the Republicans will be backed into a corner and finally vote for a freeze in spending.) Obama will create heightened racial tension by telling everyone that the White Republicans are racially motivated and did this to hurt the Black community. This manufactured racial tension, combined with growing tensions over the then-collapsing medical coverage due to Obamacare, will result in race wars and civil unrest. People will take to the streets.
By the way, you should know that my colleague, the Army Colonel who is telling me all this, is Black. He specifically commented, and outwardly expressed his embarrassment, about how Blacks have become so dependent and enslaved by the welfare system and the Democrats that it would be very easy to create civil unrest and race wars merely by cutting off, or dramatically hindering, EBT payments for only a month or so. He believes that most Blacks, who have a misguided sense of entitlement, will then take to looting stores and rioting.
Once the race wars, civil unrest, and violence becomes pervasive throughout the U.S., Obama will declare martial law and take over. Elections can, and will, be postponed under martial law.
My colleague noted that this possibility is clearly being analyzed and discussed inside the military because such a martial law strategy is nothing new. Tyrannical and dictatorial leaders in the past have done the martial law strategy many times. He noted that dictators such as Stalin, Mussolini, and Hitler did basically the identical thing. He went on to say that one of the most recent examples of this strategy was when Marcos declared martial law in the Philippines from 1972-1981 due to civil unrest. The Philippines had democratic elections up until that time. When martial law was declared, the Philippine constitution was suspended, its Congress dissolved, all elections were suspended, and Marcos remained in power for years beyond his elected term. The alleged “terrorist bombings” that occurred in the Philippines, which lead to Marcos declaring martial law, have always been questioned and never proven to be the acts of actual terrorists.
He concluded by saying that many believe this is the real reason behind the purgings of military generals. The older members of the military, and especially its generals and leaders, tend to be more conservative and they believe in the Constitution—and following the Constitution. Thus, a tyrant and dictator needs to get rid of these military leaders before a state of martial law is declared if the rising dictator wants the military to follow along and do what the dictator says. Due to the loss of many experienced military leaders the past few years, the military is now being run and guided more and more by younger, inexperienced leaders. The type who won’t really know what to do if martial law was declared. Moreover, he noted that there is a growing mind set throughout the military now that every soldier needs to keep quiet and just follow along with what Obama says and wants to do or you will be fired and your military career ruined. Again, I was told this is nothing new since removing strong military leaders in advance of declaring martial law is a historically-proven element of a rising tyrant and dictator.
Well, this man certainly understands the major difference between knowledge and wisdom!
Obama does nothing to help people who want freedom, such as the Iranians in 2009 when they protested Ahmadinijad's election results, and when Obama delayed saying anything to support them , Ahmadinijad knew Obama would not do anything to him, and was emboldened to torture and kill the demonstrators. As we know in Egypt Obama supported Morsi. Remember the Egyptians holding those signs saying Obama supports terrorism? More recently, when Obama made the deal with Iran, he did not ask for the release of Pastor Saeed, or the other American held captive there.
So I have no problem with believing he will created conditions to trigger civil unrest, and declare martial law.
Purging the military is necessary so he will have soldiers who will follow orders to fire on Americans.
I think he is greatly under estimating our military patriots. I really do. I have talked to people who have sons and fathers in the military, daughters & wives too. They had informed me that a great many CAREER military personel are resigning posts VOLUNTARILY becase they can see where all this is headed, and they state their reason as being "we can do more to defend the Constitution, and America, from OUTSIDE the military". One woman's son had 20+ yrs in. So our men in uniform are not blind, and the good sense God gave them and have a strong sense of honor to uphold and support the America our Founding Fathers put into place.
That said...we are in for a long struggle I think.
I agree with that 100%. Yes, many of those who have entered the service since this whole social-engineering phase began may wind up on the side of "orders," having not learned the difference between lawful and unlawful orders, and their responsibilities regarding both. However, not only do we have many, many true patriots still serving (my niece is one), we also have thousands and thousands and thousands of us vets out here who will stand up and defend this Constitutional Republic. We still honor our oath and take it very, very seriously, and, at least so far, we remain armed. However,, I fully expect an EO coming this year to confiscate Americans' weapons - we must guard against that and be prepared for it.
If that happens, I will inform them that I misplaced" my weapon and cannot seem to find it. Same with my ammo cans. That reminds me, I have to get some more.
Beleive me, I have always been one to go with the flow, and not make waves. Until Obama. Until he threatens us with turning our America into an Islamic country. NO WAY. Now way will I continue to stand and watch. I know America is full of people just like us...people who will NOT stand by and watch this thing happen.
American people have a core in their being that KNOWS America is not a country...America is it's FREE people. America is US. WE are a Free People, and that freedom comes from God, and that Freedom is paid for with the men & women who fought to keep us free, and are STILL fighting to keep us free.
America had, and still has, a Manifest Destiny. It is inside every single American. It will never submit to islam. (small case i is VERY intentional).
Obama isn't doing what he is doing all by himself. This has been decades in the making, setting the stage for him. Every man listens to someone. WHO do you think Obama is listening to?
I still say, they had better remember the WWII interview of a Japanese Lt. He was asked, "What was the most horrific incident during the war". His answer was, an angry American" I served with a person in Korea. He was a Pvt. He got angry afer being wounded by a sniper, took the hill by himself. Was awarded the Medal of Honor. He was pissed because he was trying to eat his "C" Rations. The Citation read, seeing his fellow soldiers pinned down, and being wounded, took it upon himself to lead the charge to take the hill. Didn't happen that way. Audi Murphy got his when he found that the Germans had killed his buddy. Jumped up on a diabled tank and openned fire on the enemy and captured a group of Germans. Most Americans I have served with are willing to rise to the occassion and give them hell. Most of Obama's army are wanabees.
I firmly beleive WWII Vets gave ALL for their country. No one held back a damn thing. But despite being of a different generation, I think today's military would do their best to fight for America. It's a different war, this war Obama started. It will be a lot of civilian fighting as well. Civilians will need local leaders. WWII Vets would be an assett, especially if Martial Law were to shut down modes communication and conventional means of action. Obama has already signed into that in the event Marshal Law is declared, he will assume TOTAL CONTROL of ALL MEDIA...phones, radios, internet..the whole thing. EXCEPT ham radio, etc.
what are we going to do, we the people, it all sounds good to say us together, but are we really, and WHAT can be done? i am so sick of our government, i am sick of obamacare and no one standing up for american people, i am sick of obamas abuses of power, his total lack of concern over dead in benghazi, fast and furious, black panther voter suppression of white voters, of his racial provocations, irs,nsa, increased taxes, epa regs, and anything and everything to prevent any type of job growth and creation. i am with the other person, he needs to be impeached now, why isnt any republican doing anything, and why are democrats going along with him even tho it is destroying their reelection hopes, which it darn well should. i feel so frustrated and very despondent over my grandkids future country. it wont be like i grew up in, in 60s and 70s. i just keep praying that God will save our country but morals are in the trash, liberalism is mainstream, and anything goes. God bless usa, most wonderful country ever founded, and all the veterans who fought and died for her.
Ellen, I have done a lot of thinking about the question you asked in your very first sentence, and here's my thinking... It seems as if everyone is waiting for someone to come forward for the people to rally around. Someone that can be trusted and has a history of being an honorable citizen leader. Sadly though, I don't see anyone that has accepted the position of leader, so it may take an absolute terrible and disgusting act by our Federal Government or some stupid move by the president (notice my use of a small letter 'p', it is no mistake) that finally pushes a lot of citizens over the edge. Other than that, we must continue to ready our selves for the very worst to happen in the near future and hope for the very best.
Meanwhile let me make one suggestion for those of you that like to call and/or write to your Congressional Rep or Senator. Doing it the old fashion way just doesn't have the same effect anymore. They simply have a staffer read and toss if what you are saying, or writing, something controversial, or relay downright anger at their stupidity. We need to start thinking like lefty radicals when it comes to trying to promote change or trying force the government to live within their means, and do so in a trustworthy manner. I suggest we stop calling the offices of any Congressional Senator or Representative, and instead put pressure on the government by set-up calling campaigns whereby we call another Government agency and shut down their phone lines and overload email boxes. If we were to do this to different govmnt agencies in D.C. not only will the politicians be sure to get an earful about it, but the News outlets would be more likely to cover it simply because it is such an out of the norm approach to shaking-up Washington. This is classic thinking-out-of-the-box for activism, something we lack at the moment. The left is good at creating a stink, it's high time we did the same!
I'm on board David Swanson, let's do it.
