DAMN! The US Military Takes A Stand Against Obama… HISTORIC & SHOCKING!

What a difference eight years makes.

Some will remember the warm and enthusiastic reception George W. Bush received whenever he met with the men and women who serve in the U.S. military.

While people of goodwill can debate issues such as “unnecessary” wars, and decry the shameful treatment of America’s veterans, these heroes always seemed to return Bush’s warm feelings towards them.

What a contrast to their interactions with President Obama. As he undertakes his seemingly endless “farewell tour,” the difference between the two men has been cast into sharp relief.

This video makes it obvious:

However, there is more evidence of the negative feelings our troops have for the outgoing commander in chief:

President Barack Obama will leave office on Jan. 20 with negative reviews from most members of the U.S. military.

More than half the troops in a new poll had an unfavorable opinion of Obama’s leadership of the military for the past eight years, and about 36 percent said they approved of his performance as commander in chief, according to the latest survey by the Military Times and the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University.

Nearly 49 percent of service members who voted in the November election cast their ballots for Republican Donald Trump, who was very critical of Obama, while 29 percent voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton, who was Obama’s secretary of state.

As The Political Insider weighs in:

Why do they feel this way? The survey helps to shed some light on that as well, with a vast majority saying President Obama has left their ranks understaffed, made them less safe by withdrawing troops from Iraq, and made them less safe with his decisions in Afghanistan.

No wonder there were so many empty seats for the President’s farewell speech. The disdain for his leadership was so palpable that a U.S. Army Honor Guard member tried to escape his hollow speech by passing out.

Obviously, the opinions of those in the U.S. armed services are not uniform (pun not intended.) They are Republicans, Democrats and independents. However, is it crazy to speculate that most of them are looking forward to the change in leadership coming up on January 20? Share you thoughts below!

    Obviously his farewell speech was not so accurate regarding unemployment, killings, and other aspect of what’s had happened while he’s the commander in chief. It brought tears in my eyes when he mentioned about Michelle because I know they endured a lot of criticism etc. but the most important is that we became very divided and I’m touch that our new president elect Donal J Trump will make our country great again. I’m sad for the Obamas and I’m happy for our country be different without him.. Good bye, Hussein Obama and Michelle, good bye.

    I’m a Canadian Conservative so I don’t often comment on American Conservative political sites, but this article is particularly concerning. For America to remain the beacon of hope and model of democracy it has been, America’s active duty service men and women must play no active part in politics beyond voting.

    One of the cornerstones of any democracy is civilian control of the military. Active military participation in politics is the hallmark of banana republics and dictatorships. America must never go there, and all Americans must be vigilant about it.

    Active Duty servicemen don’t need to like their commanders or their orders, but they must obey them. Whether they respect the man or not, active duty personnel must respect the office of president and their commander-in-chief. Those who do not should be removed from the service immediately.

    Unlike many thoughtful Conservative articles, this one flirts with sedition. America needs you to do better.

Last week, reports indicated Stefan Halper, a Cambridge professor and longtime aide to some of Washington’s most powerful figures, was outed as an FBI informant planted inside Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. The New York Post writes: Halper made his first overture when he met with Page at a British symposium. The two remained in regular contact for more than a year, meeting at Halper’s Virginia farm and in Washington, DC, as well as exchanging emails. The professor met with Trump campaign co-chair Sam Clovis in late August, offering his services as a foreign-policy adviser, The Washington Post reported Friday, without naming the academic. … Days later, Halper contacted Papadopoulos by e-mail. The professor offered the young and inexperienced campaign aide $3,000 and an all-expenses-paid trip to London, ostensibly to write a paper about energy in the eastern Mediterranean region. Here are a few fast facts about Halper’s history in politics. Got His Start in Nixon/Ford Years The Stanford and Oxford-educated Halper started his career in government in 1971 as a member of President Richard Nixon’s Domestic Policy Council. The foreign policy expert served as the Office of Management and Budget’s Assistant Director of Management and Evaluation Division between 1973-1974. Halper then served as an assistant to all three of President Gerald Ford’s Chief of Staffs — Alexander Haig, Donald Rumsfeld, and Dick Cheney — until 1977. Accused of Leading a Spy Ring Inside Jimmy Carter’s Presidential Campaign The Reagan-Bush presidential campaign hired Halper to serve as Director of Policy Coordination in 1980 and would later be embroiled in the Debategate affair, a scandal in which CIA operatives were accused of leaking the Carter campaign’s foreign policy positions to the Republican ticket. The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald reports: Four decades ago, Halper was responsible for a long-forgotten spying scandal involving the 1980 election, in which the Reagan campaign – using CIA officials managed by Halper, reportedly under the direction of former CIA Director and then-Vice-Presidential candidate George H.W. Bush – got caught running a spying operation from inside the Carter administration. The plot involved CIA operatives passing classified information about Carter’s foreign policy to Reagan campaign officials in order to ensure the Reagan campaign knew of any foreign policy decisions that Carter was considering. Halper also worked as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Political-Military Affairs during President Ronald Reagan’s first term. Had a Stint as a Bank Executive In 1984, Halper was chairman of three financial institutions — National Bank of Northern Virginia, Palmer National Bank, and George Washington National Bank. White House official Oliver North wired loaned funds from the Palmer National Bank to a Swiss bank account, which were later used to aid the contras. Believed Hillary Clinton Would Be a Better Steward for U.S.-UK Relations In March 2016, Halper told Russia’s Sputnik News that he believed then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton would prove to be a steadier hand in preserving the “special relationship” enjoyed by the United States and Britain. “I believe Clinton would be best for US-UK relations and for relations with the European Union. Clinton is well-known, deeply experienced and predictable. US-UK relations will remain steady regardless of the winner although Clinton will be less disruptive over time,” Halper said.
