Army Saluting Barack ObamaHas there ever been an administration that has had more disdain for the U.S. military than the Obama administration?  The way that this administration treats our veterans and the way that this administration is gutting our armed forces is absolutely shameful.  As you will read about below, Obama and his minions have been purging the military of officers that do not agree with their agenda, they have labeled veterans returning from overseas wars as “potential terrorists”, and they have turned our military into a playground for political correctness and social experiments.  Not that Obama has been afraid to use the military.  In fact, he has sent troops more places than just about any other president in U.S. history.  He is running our brave men and women into the ground at the same time that he is relentlessly reducing the size of the Army, Navy and Air Force.  As a result, our armed forces are smaller, weaker, more spread out and less prepared for a major war than at any other time in recent memory.  Please share this article with as many people as you can.  The American people deserve to know the truth.  The following are 18 signs that the Obama administration is openly hostile to the military…


#1 A new VA training guide compares our precious military veterans to Oscar the Grouch.

#2 Military veterans have been repeatedly labeled as “potential terrorists” in official government documents during the Obama years.

#3 According to a new report put out by the office of U.S. Senator Tom Coburn, the negligence of the VA while the Obama administration has been in charge may have resulted in the deaths of more than 1,000 veterans.

#4 Things have gotten so bad since Obama took over that some veterans have had to wait more than a year just to get an appointment with a doctor at a VA hospital.

#5 At one point during Obama’s reign, it was taking more than half a year for the average claim for veteran benefits to be processed, and the Department of Veterans Affairs had a backlog of more than half a million overdue claims for benefits that were at least 125 days old.

#6 Thanks to budget cuts that the Obama administration gleefully pushed for, a lot of really good career officers are being forced out of the military.  For example, earlier this month it was reported that more than 500 Army majors and more than 1,100 Army captains were getting “pink slips” due to these budget cuts.

#7 Since Obama entered the White House, dozens of very high ranking officers such as generals and admirals have been “purged” from the ranks of the military.  In a previous article, I included a very long list of the names of some of these officers.  A significant number of them were known to disagree with the Obama administration on matters of military policy.

#8 During Obama’s second term, the size of the U.S. Army is being reduced by a total of 60,000 soldiers.

#9 The size of the U.S. Air Force is going to be reduced by 500 planes over the next five years.

#10 According to retired Army Lt. Col. Robert Maginnis, the U.S. Air Force once had more than twice as many squadrons as it does today…

“Our tanker aircraft are on average 47 years old and our strategic bombers 34 years old, and besides, their numbers are totally insufficient for America’s global missions. For example, our air force shrank from 82 fighter squadrons at the end of the Cold War to 39 today and our Navy is in worse shape.”

#11 Thanks in part of Obama, the U.S. Navy is already the smallest that it has been since World War I.

#12 Barack Obama has repeatedly used the military as a tool to advance the cause of political correctness.

#13 In an incredibly reckless move, the Obama administration left billions of dollars worth of military equipment in Iraq.  Now ISIS has captured much of that equipment and is using it to take over vast portions of Iraq and Syria.  It has been estimated that the equipment that ISIS has captured up to this point could equip an army of 200,000 soldiers.

#14 During the Obama years, sexual assaults in the U.S. military have soared to an all-time high, and most of the assaults have been male on male.

#15 In some areas of the country the Department of Veterans Affairs has been caught red-handed banning the words “God” and “Jesus” during funeral services for veterans.

#16 All over the United States, “mental illness” is being used as an excuse to take guns away from military veterans.

#17 Under the Obama administration, some military veterans have actually had to pay to have their medals shipped to them.  For example, one soldier had to shell out a 21 dollar shipping fee just to get his Purple Heart.

#18 Barack Obama seems to have a particular disdain for the U.S. strategic nuclear arsenal.  In fact, he seems absolutely determined to do all that he can to gut it.  The following is an extended excerpt from one of my previous articles


Back in 1967, the United States had an arsenal of more than 31,000 strategic nuclear warheads.

Since 1967, the size of the U.S. strategic nuclear arsenal has been reduced by about 95 percent.  The START Treaty that Barack Obama signed back in 2010 limits both the United States and Russia to a maximum of 1,550 deployed strategic nuclear warheads.

Unfortunately, that was not nearly enough of a reduction for Obama.

In June 2013, he announced to the world that he has decided that the United States can reduce the number of our deployed nuclear warheads by another one-third…

After a comprehensive review, I’ve determined that we can ensure the security of America and our allies, and maintain a strong and credible strategic deterrent, while reducing our deployed strategic nuclear weapons by up to one-third.  And I intend to seek negotiated cuts with Russia to move beyond Cold War nuclear postures.

If those cuts are made, that would reduce the size of the U.S. strategic nuclear arsenal to about 1,000 warheads.

And there has even been some talk that the Obama administration ultimately wants to reduce our arsenal down to just 300 warheads.


Are you starting to get the picture?

Barack Obama and his underlings do not value our armed forces.

They are more than happy to use them as political and social tools, but when the time comes to spend money for our national defense or to take care of our veterans they are always hesitant to do so.

At a time when the world is getting crazier than ever, our military is in a deep state of decline.

One day we might look back and bitterly regret what Obama has done to us.

    War, by U.S General Smedley Butler (1933)

    spent thirty-three years and four months in active military service
    as a member of this country’s most agile military force, the Marine
    Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to
    Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being
    a high class muscle-man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the
    Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.

    I suspected I was
    just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all the
    members of the military profession, I never had a thought of my own
    until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended
    animation while I obeyed the orders of higher-ups. This is typical with
    everyone in the military service.

    I helped make Mexico,
    especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped
    make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to
    collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central
    American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering
    is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house
    of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic
    for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it
    that Standard Oil went its way unmolested.

    During those years,
    I had, as the boys in the back room would say, a swell racket. Looking
    back on it, I feel that I could have given Al Capone a few hints. The
    best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated
    on three continents.

    This man has never served in the Military a day of his life.
    The previous holder of this office was technically AWOL and possibly a deserter during the Vietnam Conflict. He was a member of a National Guard Unit and he was ordered overseas to Vietnam. He never arrived. His Daddy was Vice. His Daddy got him out of it.
    Is anyone getting the message? I doubt it.
    The conditions under which the people serve their country in the military have been bad for as long as I can remember. It is getting worse.
    There were rules against people serving in combat for 3 and 4 terms in the 60s. I have no idea what has happened to change that.
    We have at least one President that changed the benefits of Veterans by Executive Order in about 2004. If you make over 30,000 a year, it might be higher now, then you cannot claim VA Hospital benefits at all according to orders by President Bush.
    Executive Orders were originally meant to only be given in an Emergency to give Congress time to act. That isn’t how they work now.
    Right now Executive Orders amount to dictatorship. They are not overuled by this negligent Congress at all.
    That includes both parties.
    By firing these good officers he is probably saving their lives unintentionally. Because they are not victims of his incompetent military behavior.
    He is right about one thing. Nuclear weapons are obsolete. In order to use a massive amount of nuclear weapons we are going to make the planet uninhabitable. That might happen with peaceable nuclear power plants like the one in Japan that is almost impossible to bring under control. Yet he is all for nuclear power plants. Why?
    Our power company was a partner in one. It almost bankrupted the power company with the resultant need to shut it down. You have to hold onto storage of radioactive materials for years after they are used. That is not economical.
    In a war, you have to have some kind of idea about how you can win that war with a minimum logistic disasters and loss of human life. That means you have to be ruthless. It means in a real war you have to have an end of that war in sight.
    The emotional disaster of war is it leaves professional military people broken. It is not cowboys and indians on TV. It is people dying for no good reason. It is innocent women and children dying because they were in the right place at the wrong time. We have an enormous population of mentally unstable people that have experienced all the horrors of war and for what?
    The catch 22 here is they have bought an enormous amount of emotional baggage in these combat zones. We teach our people in our churches right from wrong. Then we send them into disasterous situations where right and wrong are not clearly defined leaving them hurt and confused. He is right to watch those unstable people even if we are responsible for them becoming that way.
    I think 10 of 13 people I lived with in an Air Force Barracks at Niagara AB, New York died in Vietnam. I was one of the lucky few to survive. It was a lottery and I won by going to South Korea for the last 13 months of my Air Force Service in a non-combative position as a clerk. I had a fancy title. I was in Commercial Transportation.
    Back then few men typed. I was one of those few people with decent skills in typing. I made a lot of mistakes in my life at 19. One of those mistakes was joining the military. But I served my 4 years and got out with an honorable discharge. I didn’t go AWOL.
    That executive order by President Bush is still in effect 6 years later with the election of President Obama. It makes a sad joke out of our commitment to our Veterans that did survive service.

    Michael, might it just be that Obama is faced with the reality of our country just being broke? After all, it did happen to the Soviet Union, and it got to the point where they just had to mothball their fleet and downsize the armed forces. Where are we going to get the money? I don’t particularly like the professor, but one has to get real with the precarious situation our country is in economically.

    • Andrew

      yep, the #1 position is too expensive to attain, and the W.H. is scaling down the military without admit it. It’s not just $, NWO = no place for empires. They turn their focus back home to control any domestic opposition by branding it “terrorist”. But they can not bring order and peace by force, it comes from above. Babel tower story once again :(

    • piccadillybabe

      Men and women in the military today enlist upon their own volition. It is not like they are drafted against their free will. Many clammer to get those positions as jobs are far and few between here in the US.
      I for one am pleased that Obama is cutting back on the military. I am sure we have defense where it is needed most. We need to stay out of other people’s business world wide and start working on getting our own affairs in order here in the US, IMHO.

    President Obama has signed into law a piece of legislation that will attempt to reform the VA health care system and lower tuition for military vets at colleges. If he was vehemently anti-military, he could have vetoed this bill. It is called the “Veterans’ Access to Care through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act,”




    The START treaty you mentioned is called New START, which is a follow-up to START I , signed into law by President Bush ’41 in 1991.



    Finally, there has been an increase in military suicides over the past number of years. Removing a gun from someone who is suffering from PTSD is a pre-emptive move. PTSD is a severe mental disorder. This is from someone, who although not a soldier, has a mental disability and a history of suicidal ideation and has attempted suicide twice.

    I think that President Obama is on the verge of “checking out” as President. If the Republicans do win control of the Senate and retained control of the House, they have already spoken of dismantling his legislative agenda and discrediting him as the leader of our country. He is under constant attack by the “right wing media machine”. For the last two years of his administration, if the Republicans have control, I think this country will be witness to an unofficial coup against a sitting president by a resentful and hateful Congress.

    I’m not quite sure why this should be a surprise.

  • DerpDerp

    Michael, you do realize that a majority of your points are based on money/funding. Now think back to Civics 101…who is in charge of funding the government/military?

    That would be Congress.

    If you want to blame cuts in spending to the Pentagon (which translates into lost jobs for military sergeants and officers), or to the VA, etc. on the President…you’re woefully wrong.

    As someone that is involved with the military, I can honestly say that your assessments are blatantly wrong, and completely off base.

    Totalitarian regimes always weaken the military and strengthen the police.

    Police have enough power to rule the serfs but not enough to overthrow the ruling regime.
