Truth Or Consequences.
Truth… a rare creature seldom seen near our nation’s Capitol. Watching the massive assault which has been launched against this nation is just mind boggling. We have the Marxist Democrat Congress, a defeated lame-duck Congress, attempting to ram through every single item they had left on their wish list before the Conservatives take over in January.
They’re not having great success up to this point and President Obama worked out a ‘compromise’ with the Republicans. People speak: He got his clock cleaned and the unemployment bone they tossed him won’t hide that.
His administration cannot manage the country. Obama’s entire government is a security nightmare on every single level. He himself could never have passed a security clearance, had one been run. Someone, somewhere, has a dossier on our glorious leader, or maybe several. Remember the Clintons combing through hundreds of confidential FBI files that just magically ‘appeared’ at the White House?
The Clinton White House was full of leaks also. Irresponsible, criminal release of confidential and secret materials has cost this country huge amounts of treasure, but far worse than that, it has cost us irreplaceable human assets. It’s usually done by ‘unnamed’ sources that feed the slavish lame stream media, generally timed to do the maximum amount of damage to our intelligence capacity.
This Obama White House has taken lapsed security and leaking information to new heights of irresponsibility. How was a lowly PFC able to access as much information as was alleged, ‘intelligence analyst’ or not? A PFC is the second lowliest form of life in the army’s hierarchy. What was this individual doing that permitted him to access so much information without supervision?
It’s tough to realize that security has slipped since my active Marine days… things today appear pretty sloppy by comparison. What I think is that the Pentagon and our national security apparatus had better do a real strip search… our State Department didn’t get the name “Foggy Bottom” for nothing. It’s long been home to leftist activists. I, and other writers who are drawn to these things like moths to light, have been concerned at what we saw as a definite politicizing of the Pentagon and the definite and not favorable effect it’s had on our combat troops.
These politically protected leftists need to be replaced. Left to spread their corruption, these people do terrible damage to the spirit and combat readiness of US forces. Just look at the Pentagon this last week, proclaiming a supposed ‘poll’ taken amongst US troops about ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’, supposedly overwhelmingly in favor of the law’s repeal. Horseradish… that poll was as phony as the Pentagon itself has become… with far too many senior officers willing to sell their men out for the rewards of political correctness.
Maybe the shakedown needs to start at the top.
