The last couple of days, I have caught a lot of flack from Liberals, concerning my post about President Barack Hussein Obama’s nonchalant “Semper Latte” Salute to the members of our Brightest and Best, as he stepped off of “Marine One”, on his way to speak at the United Nations General Assembly.
My reply to them was,
It is all about context.
Today’s post proves my point.
The Army Oath of Enlistment reads…
“I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.” (Title 10, US Code; Act of 5 May 1960 replacing the wording first adopted in 1789, with amendment effective 5 October 1962).
That is the oath that every American Citizen swears when they join our Army. Soon, it won’t just be American Citizens “serving” in the US Army.
USA Today has the story…
A small number of undocumented immigrants in the U.S. will have an opportunity to join the military for the first time in decades under a new Department of Defense policy unveiled Thursday.
The new rules will expand an existing program allowing recruiters to target foreign nationals with high-demand skills, mostly rare foreign language expertise or specialized health care training.
For the first time, the program — known as Military Accessions in the National Interest, or MAVNI — will be open to immigrants without a proper visa if they came to the U.S. with their parents before age 16. More specifically, they must be approved under a 2012 Obama administration policy known as Deferred Action for Child Arrivals, or DACA.
The new Pentagon policy may be the first phase of a broader government-wide effort to ease pressure on immigrants and create new paths to citizenship. President Barack Obama, frustrated with the failure of Congress to pass any substantial immigration reform, has vowed to aggressively use his presidential authority to change the way immigration policies are carried out.
The Pentagon program is capped at 1,500 recruits per year. Officials say it’s unclear how many of those might be unlawful DACA status immigrants as opposed to others who are also eligible for military service under MAVNI, including those with legal, nonpermanent visas such as students or tourists.
Estimates suggest between 1.2 million and 2.1 million children, teenagers and young adults in the U.S. have no legal immigration status but meet the criteria for the DACA program. Those targeted by recruiters under the MAVNI program likely will be immigrants with language skills critical to national security, such as Arabic, Chinese, Pashto or Persian.
The last bipartisan U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform wrangled with the topic of Illegal Immigration for six years.
President Bill “Bubba” Clinton appointed former congresswoman and Democratic icon Barbara Jordan as its chair. Jordan came from humble beginnings to become a lawyer and the first Southern black woman elected to the House of Representatives. A DEMOCRAT, she was a leader in the civil rights movement, a professor of ethics, a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and a world-class orator (two of her speeches are considered among the greatest of the 20th century). Her appointment gave the commission instant credibility. According to Jordan, she believed her responsibility as the head of the commission was to restore credibility to the U.S. immigration system. On the issue of illegal immigration, Jordan was very clear and succinct:
Unlawful immigration is unacceptable. Those who should not be here will be required to leave.
That “whirring” sound you hear is Rep. Jordan spinning like a pinwheel in her grave.
Not only has this imbecilic Administration deemed the people who have broken into our country to be “righteous”, Obama and his Department of Defense are going to allow them to serve in our Armed Forces.
How are recruits who are here ILLEGALLY going to swear allegiance to a country of which they are not even citizens?
Duct tape your head. There’s more…
ArmyTimes.com reports that…
Nearly 30,000 soldiers must be removed from the active rolls in the next 17 months if the Army is to make the first waypoint in a drawdown that eventually will reduce the force to 450,000, or even 420,000, soldiers.
As of April 1, there were 519,786 troopers on active duty, according to the most recent accounting of Regular Army strength by the Defense Manpower Data Cnter.
The personnel total includes 4,000 West Point cadets and several hundred soldiers who are processing for separation because of physical disability, and several hundred others who have been identified for involuntary separation or retirement because of indiscipline or selection by force reduction boards.
Since the beginning of the drawdown in October 2012, Army strength dropped from 550,000 to 530,000 by the end of fiscal 2013.
Budget projections indicate the Army will end fiscal 2014 on Sept. 30 with 510,000 soldiers. With that level of manning, the service will have to cut the active force by 20,000 soldiers in 2015.
Sources say about 15 percent of the annual reduction will be achieved through involuntary separations generated by the 2014 Qualitative Service Program boards for NCOs, and the officer separation boards that met in April for captains and majors in overstrength year groups.
Involuntary separations generally do not take effect until several months after Pentagon officials approve the results of selection-out boards.
Because of budget pressures, the pace of the ongoing drawdown has been accelerated, so that active component manning is slated to hit 490,000 by the end of fiscal 2015, which is 23,000 fewer soldiers than previously planned.
Does everybody have their heads wrapped in duct tape to prevent them from exploding? Good.
Let me see if I can get this straight.
Obama and his mindless minions at the Department of Defense are going to allow those with no loyalty whatsoever to the United States of America to serve in OUR Armed Forces.
Meanwhile, he is getting rid of those American citizens who are presently serving with honor and distinction, while drawing down our military to pre-World War II levels.
Simultaneously, all appearances seem to indicate that “Military Advisors”, currently on the ground in Iraqi-nam, will be joined by more.
Obama himself has said that this “military action” against ISIS will be a long, drawn-out affair.
Especially, if he continues to eliminate the military positions of those who defend us and replaces those American citizens with Illegal Immigrants.
Because, evidently, their loyalty can be bought.
Until He Comes,
