The Proxy In Chief, Barack H. Obama won’t fire his loyal minions like Kathleen Sebilius or Eric Holder, because in the Liberal Progressive Worldview, you reward your friends and punish your enemies. That he is now firing top military brass demonstrates that the president is afraid of them and is displaying a Banana Republic Third World View.
As you may know, nine General Officers of the Army, Navy and Air Forces have been fired, some for cause some not. Some believe this a purge; Obama is merely getting rid of people he feels may be disloyal. There is speculation that there is a litmus test for the president. The Generals are a threat to him like the Generals of the Army in Egypt were a threat to Egypt’s former president, who was replaced by a military leader rather recently.
You may remember that the president invested a lot of hope in the Arab Spring with deposed the former president of Egypt and replaced him with a minion of the Muslim Brotherhood. Now that president has been replaced by the Army and that same Army is cracking down on the Brotherhood, to the very glad support of the Egyptian citizenry.
Obama must recognize this sea change, and like all Third World leaders, he is rightfully afraid. It’s too bad because the US has never acted like the Third World, until we elected Barack Obama. You see, the Generals possess something the president fundamentally lacks, leadership! You don’t get to be a General or an Admiral, especially one with four stars on your collar lest you’ve been vetted by other leaders. These are the best and brightest and each has held commands at many levels. It is only natural for someone like Barack, who’s never led anyone or even held a real job, to be intimidated by these types. That is why they are being given their walking papers.
There’s an analogy that I think will illustrate this. Back in the 80s there was this classic sci fi film, Star Trek II, The Wrath of Khan staring Bill Shatner, Leondard Nimoy and Ricardo Monltelban. Captain James T. Kirk, Captain of the intrepid Enterprise and his loyal first officer, Spock are locked in an epic contest of wills against genetically enhanced super-genius Khan Noonian Singh! Khan has a score to settle against Kirk and steals a vessel, the Reliant, in order to exact his vengeance. Both ships are damaged in Khan’s surprise attack and in order to even the odds, Kirk orders the Enterprise into an ionized nebula. The interference of the Nebula causes force screens to lower, wrecks havoc with tactical displays and diminishes sensors. Sauce for the Goose, says Spock. The odds would be even. Each vessel blindly searches for the advantage over the other in the ghostly mist of the nebula.
The science officer, Mr. Spock notices something, a potential weakness. Khan is flying his ship like it was a surface vessel, displaying 2D thinking. The combatants are traveling in space, a 3D medium. Kirk uses Khan’s inexperienced mistake to get the advantage. Dropping down under the enemy ship, he gets a position behind Khan’s Reliant and lets him have it. An epic moment in sci fi history.
By all intents and purposes, Barack Obama is a genius, just like Khan. He’s learned his lessons well, a constitutional scholar and all that. But he really doesn’t understand or really like the constitution. He’s been trained at the feet of committed socialists and communists. He doesn’t understand or appreciate a constitutional Republic at all. That is why Obama is trapped in 2D, Third World mentality. He doesn’t know us at all.
If Obama is planning for a coup, firing of the Generals would do no good. They are still out there and they can still affect their influence in retirement. The Generals and Colonels behind them, after all what is a colonel but a general who hasn’t got his star yet? Were brought up through the ranks by the generals above them. All have sworn allegiance to the country and sworn to protect the Constitution, something progressives like Obama view as an obstacle of negative liberties that limits his power.
He’s right, the Constitution does limit his power. The president can’t do anything about the Tea Party or Congressional conservatives, so he has to attack the Generals. It’s a fruitless effort, but it does demonstrate his Third World Progressive mentality.
Here’s something to think about. Each of the 50 states and Porto Rico have militias. It’s called the National Guard. Each of those states and territories have a Two-Star Adjutant General at the head of them, each operating under the authority of their respect Governors. Over half of the Governors are conservative Republicans. Firing Generals at the Pentagon does Barack no good if he is worried about a coup. He should be worrying about the Governors and their respective militias. One conservative Governor, like Perry of Texas or Brewer of Arizona, could rally the states against the President and give him a very hard time, and that is what he should fear.
But that’s not going to happen, at least not soon. Because, we are not the Third or Developing World. We’re America and any fight we launch against the president will be a political one. The Tea Party and conservatives around the country are continuing to fight the good fight to legally pry this loser and his minions from office. With all the failures of this administration: Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the Failure of the Obamacare website and the termination of millions of insurance policies around the country, this president is damaging his party’s brand. As he serves what’s left of his lame duck term, it will be increasingly difficult for president to accomplish anything, and anyone running for the blue will have a hard time making headway when the next election comes around.
