If A President Wanted To Destroy This Country, This Is How He’d Do It

If a Machiavellian genius were to set out to destroy the United States, he would do three things. Disarm and weaken our military so it cannot defend us against foreign enemies. Disarm the National Guard so it cannot defend the States against the federal government. Nationalize and militarize law enforcement by weaponizing bureaucrats.

That version of the U.S. would be helpless, governed by a tyrant, and without a cultural or moral core. It would soon cease even to faintly resemble the country bequeathed to us by the Founders.

Whether by malevolent design or stupendous ineptitude and rash impulse, this is precisely the blueprint being followed by our current president.

Our commander-in-chief has canceled the military’s Tomahawk and Hellfire missiles, with no replacements in view for at least a decade. The Tomahawk is the most advanced cruise missile in the world and is the secret to the superiority of the U.S. Navy. The Hellfire is an extremely effective air-to-surface anti-tank weapon.

According to Seth Cropsey, director of the Hudson Institute’s Center for American Seapower, if someone were trying to “reduce the U.S. ability to shape events” in the world, he couldn’t “find a better way than depriving the U.S. fleet of Tomahawks. It’s breathtaking.”

Obama is deliberately reducing the army’s troop strength to pre-World War II levels. With open homosexuals serving in the military and women foolishly and dangerously being prepped for combat roles, military morale is plummeting and recruitment is suffering. The president has reduced our military’s goal from being able to fight a two-front war to fighting a one-front war with some ability for holding actions on a second front. Such pronounced weakness invites aggression from our enemies.

The president is likewise disarming our National Guard units by transferring their Apache attack helicopters to the Army and trading them in for Blackhawks, which are designed not for combat but for transport.

National Guard units have been instrumental in the nation’s war efforts. There were times during Operation Iraqi Freedom when Guard troops represented over 50% of the Army’s combat power. Along with Reserve troops, they have accounted for nearly a third of the service members who have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001.

Why would the president wish to neuter such an effective fighting force? It’s quite simple really. National Guard units are part of State militias and therefore under the primary command of their state governors, until they mobilized for use in national defense operations. Because their commander-in-chief under ordinary circumstances is their governor, not their president, Guard units represent the last line of defense against a president drunk on his own tyrannical power.

In a Cliven Bundy kind of situation, where an ordinary citizen in one of our sovereign States is being threatened by armed bureaucrats pointing assault rifles at their wives and children, it makes a huge difference whether available attack helicopters are under the command of the federal government or under the command of a state governor determined to protect the rights of his citizens to life, liberty and property, if necessary against federal tyranny.

As George Washington said, ”A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.” A power-mad president would not want any State actors with “sufficient arms and ammunition” to protect their own citizens from federal oppression. In other words, if he finds it necessary to fire on a state’s militia, he doesn’t want that militia to be able to shoot back.

At the same time our president is weakening our military and neutering the National Guard, he is weaponizing bureaucrats. He famously declared in 2008 that we can no longer “continue to rely on our military” to protect our national security. No, said the president,“We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

That statement has been forgotten by everyone. Everyone, that is, except President Obama. He has made good on this frightening promise in ways that most Americans don’t realize. He currently has 120,000 bureaucrats – i.e., civilians – representing federal agencies who are armed to the eyeballs.

Here is just a partial list:

●     The U.S. Department of Education

●     The Bureau of Land Management (200 uniformed law enforcement rangers and 70 special agents)

●     The U.S. Department of the Interior

●     The U.S. Postal Inspection Service (with an armed uniformed division of 1.000)

●     The National Park Service

●     The Environmental Protection Agency (200 special agents)

●     The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (224 special agents)

●     The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration(Yes, the president has put lethal weapons into the hands of our nation’s weathermen, God help us.)

Even the Library of Congress, if you can believe it, is armored up. The Department of Education has its own SWAT team, and we’ve all seen Harry Reid’s BLM Brownshirts in action over the last several weeks. The Department of Homeland Security has 1.6 billion rounds of hollow point ammunition, which by international law cannot be used in warfare. In other words, the only possible use for this overwhelming tonnage of ammo is for it to be trained on our own citizens.

So under this president, our military has been critically weakened, our state militias have been critically weakened, and our nation’s bureaucrats have been armed to the ear lobes. Only a fool who does not love this country as founded could fail to be deeply alarmed.

This president has two and one-half more years to work his mischief. Who will stand in his way?

    I am an 82 year old veteran of two wars. This man has done more damage to this nation than all the wars it has fought in my opinion. This is the first time I have ever been frightened for the future of this country. He seems to care more for illegal aliens than the American Citizen. Around the country we have police that that resemble the nazi brown shirts and SS of Germany during the 30′s and early 40′s. He has for all intents and purposes, with the help of a gutless congress, destroyed our armed forces, and now he wants to take our guns away so we can’t protect our families.It looks like the intentions of this administration is to see the demise of this nation.I Guess every American who fought and died defending this country was a wasted life, and it will be destroyed like ancient Rome, from the inside.The last sentence in the above is
    “Who will stand in his way?” The answer to that is NO ONE.There doesn’t seem to be enough “backbone” in the entire congress, and the general public don’t seem to care. It seems that anyone who mentions any dissatisfaction with the administration is immediately branded a racist by the mainstream media.Apparently they would rather see the country ruined than be called a racist.

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,
