Military Times/Institute for Veterans and Military Families Poll: Most Troops Have an Unfavorable View of Obama
The Not-so Commander in Chief …
The Military Times reports that a recent Military Times/Institute for Veterans and Military Families poll shows that the military has a 51.5% unfavorable rating of Barack Obama, while only 16.4% have a favorable one after eight years. Who had the most unfavorable opinion of Obama of all of the branches of the military, the Marines at 60.3%. The biggest criticism of Obama’s time in office was that he decreased the size of the military while in office, as 71% of those polled said the military needs more personnel. Red State opines that back in 2014, 65% of post-9/11 veterans had a favorable opinion of former President George W. Bush, calling him a good Commander-in-Chief, as opposed to about 42% at that time for President Obama.
President Barack Obama will step down after eight years as commander in chief with one of the most influential tenures leading the U.S. military, but not necessarily the political support of service members.
His moves to slim down the armed forces, move away from traditional military might and overhaul social policies prohibiting the service of minority groups have proven divisive in the ranks. His critics have accused him of trading a strong security posture for political points, and for allowing the rise of terrorists like the Islamic State group whom the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were supposed to silence.
More than half of troops surveyed in the latest Military Times/Institute for Veterans and Military Families poll said they have an unfavorable opinion of Obama and his two-terms leading the military. About 36 percent said they approve of his job as commander in chief.
Their complaints include the president’s decision to decrease military personnel (71 percent think it should be higher), his moves to withdraw combat troops from Iraq (59 percent say it made America less safe) and his lack of focus on the biggest dangers facing America (64 percent say China represents a significant threat to the U.S.)
GO ARMY, BEAT NAVY … GO TRUMP, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!
Donald Trump is partaking in one of the nation’s most storied football rivalries, saluting U.S. troops at the annual Army-Navy game on Saturday as he prepares to enter the White House.
The future commander in chief attended the 117th game between the military academies at West Point and Annapolis, which is being held on relatively neutral ground in Baltimore. The M&T Bank scoreboard showed the president-elect late in the first quarter; he waived and drew cheers from the crowd, though not at the level of the noise generated by Army’s first-quarter touchdown.
The Black Knights are hoping to end a 14-year Navy win streak and took a 7-0 lead into the second quarter.
Trump tweeted on Saturday morning that he was going to the game “as a show of support for our Armed Forces.” He planned to spend the first half of the game in the box of David Urban, a West Point graduate and Republican adviser and the second half in the box of retired Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North, a graduate of Annapolis.

75TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ATTACK ON PEARL HARBOR … GOD BLESS THOSE THAT WERE LOST
We ask all to always remember and never forget … Today marks the 75th anniversary of the day the United States was suddenly and deliberately attacked by the Empire of Japan and America would never be the same. So many brave lives lost at the hands of such a cowardly act. It was a time of innocence lost; however, Americans would strike back against their foreign aggressors and save the world from tyranny. Today, as always, we remember those brave men and women that died that fateful day. So many lives affected by that single heinous act; however, as history would record, Japan awoke a sleeping giant. That reprehensible, treacherous act unified a country and in fact awoke a sleeping giant that provided the resolve to win a war against the evil Axis. We remember those still living, sadly there are so few today.
God Bless the heroism of Our Greatest Generation!
Yesterday, Dec. 7, 1941 – a date which will live in infamy – the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.
The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with the government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific.
Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in Oahu, the Japanese ambassador to the United States and his colleagues delivered to the Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. While this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or armed attack.
It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time, the Japanese government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.
The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. Very many American lives have been lost. In addition, American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu.
Attack at Dawn
WILL OBAMA GO THRU WITH A TREASONOUS ACT LIKE GIVING BEGDAHL A PARDON?
Sgt. Bowe Bergdah has asked President Obama to pardon him before leaving the White House. Will Obama provide such a pardon to a traitor? As reported at the NY Times, the request is a pre-emptive pardon that would avert Sergeant Bergdahl’s court-martial trial on charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy that endangered fellow soldiers. The trial is scheduled to begin on April 18. If found guilty, Bergdahl would probably face life in prison. As opined at the Gateway Pundit, “many of the men who served with Bowe Bergdahl have described him as a deserter but that didn’t stop Obama from trading multiple foreign Taliban terrorists for him a few years ago.” But who would really be surprised if Obama, the divider in chief did such a thing? One person who would not is President-elect Donald Trump. He was highly critical of Bergdahl on the campaign trail, calling him a “dirty, rotten traitor”.
A source told Fox News that Bergdahl wrote a letter to Obama thanking him for rescuing him in 2014 and trading him for the Guantanamo Bay detainees.
White House and Justice Department officials also told the New York Times that Bergdahl submitted several copies of a clemency application that were sent to the Pentagon, the Justice Department and the White House immediately after the election.
The pardon would avert Bergdahl’s court-martial trial, which is slated to begin in April. He faces charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, endangering fellow soldiers.
Barack Obama actually brought this deserter to the White House and made it a WH photo-op
Remember when Sergeant Bergdahl was released in May 2014 and Obama appeared alongside his parents in the Rose Garden. The national security adviser, Susan E. Rice, said he had served with “honor and distinction.” Yet another thing Obama and his minions got 100% incorrect and on the wrong side of the American people. It will be a breath of fresh air to rid ourselves of the Obama administration once and for all.
This is yet another reason why America voted from Trump in an electoral landslide, for actions like the current administration did with the likes of Bowe Bergdahl. America agreed with Donald Trump as to what should happen to the likes of this traitor. Take a look and listen below.

A FANTASTIC PICK!!!
Yesterday, at a post-election thank you tour stop in Cincinnati, Ohio, president-elect Donald Trump announced to the audience that he will be picking retired Marine Gen. James “Mad Dog” Mattis for Secretary of Defense. Mattis, 66, served more than four decades in the Marine Corps and as reported is known as one of the most influential military leaders of his generation, a strategic thinker who occasionally drew rebukes for his aggressive talk. Which makes him perfect to dismantle the PC nonsense that has spread to the military. Mattis is known for being a Marine’s marine. Even some on the Left were impressed by the selection. Rep. Adam Schiff (CA), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, praised President-elect Donald Trump’s nomination of retired Marine Corp General James “Mad Dog” Mattis. I guarantee there were cheers across out military both here and abroad when this was announced. This is one impressive individual.
President-elect Donald Trump said Thursday he has chosen retired Marine Gen. James N. Mattis, who has said that responding to “political Islam” is the major security issue facing the United States, to be secretary of defense.
“We are going to appoint Mad Dog Mattis as our secretary of defense,” Trump told a rally in Cincinnati, the first stop on a post-election “thank-you tour.”
Trump joked that the media and audience should keep the news to themselves. “We are going to be announcing him Monday of next week,” Trump said. “Keep it inside the room.”
Mattis, who retired as chief of U.S. Central Command in 2013, has often said that Washington lacks an overall strategy in the Middle East, opting to instead handle issues in an ineffective one-by-one manner.
“Is political Islam in the best interest of the United States?” Mattis said at the Heritage Foundation in 2015, speaking about the separate challenges of the Islamic State and Iranian-backed terrorism. “I suggest the answer is no, but we need to have the discussion. If we won’t even ask the question, how do we even recognize which is our side in a fight?”
1. “I don’t lose any sleep at night over the potential for failure. I cannot even spell the word.”
2. “The first time you blow someone away is not an insignificant event. That said, there are some assholes in the world that just need to be shot.”
3. “I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me, I’ll kill you all.”
(San Diego Union Tribune)
4. “Find the enemy that wants to end this experiment (in American democracy) and kill every one of them until they’re so sick of the killing that they leave us and our freedoms intact.”
5. “Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.” (more)
