Obama Raises the Dead

How ironic and of course hypocritical that the man who will likely be the undoing of America's military would take a moment to honor those who fought for the honor that will bestowed up him in just a few short hours. The gesture of the visit would mean something, if it were truly more than just a photo op and propaganda ploy for the most anti-military soon-to-be president in America's history.

In his heart Obama sees the fallen war heroes of America as oppressors. They are the "…raiders of villages and killers of innocent women and children." Such is how liberals in general view America's participation in protecting the rights of others, and only asking for enough soil to bury our dead. Never in the history of civilization has a country with so much might, taken so little. American soldiers are liberators, and not oppressors. But you can't get our soon-to-be new Commander-in-Chief to say this publicly.  There is no photo op in that confetti in that future.

Obama stood on the hallowed grounds of Arlington National Cemetery, hand over his heart, as the bugler played "Taps." How fitting, I thought, because the Obama administration has the potential to play "Taps" for America's military dominance, and "Taps" for America as the beacon for civilization as a whole.  This is how true Conservatives know America to be, and not what the mainstream media wants us to think.

I know that Obama did what any president-elect would do in visiting Arlington National Cemetery. But I contend, that he would have visited an Al Qaeda cemetery had it been along the route. You know, in an effort to be fair.

And the media would have glorified it, as his ability to "...look beyond the terrorism of Al Qaeda", and other flowery poetry, that translated would simply mean, "Obama just publicly bitch-slapped Lady Liberty."

So what are his plans for America's military? 

He wants to set up a civilian equivalent of the military. Here's a bulletin: Such an organization can never exist, because civilians can't do what our military men and women do! And it's an insult to think otherwise. Further we already have the National Guard, and this organization has served us well, in peace time and in war, and that is all we need.

Obama has said that he will revoke "Don't ask, don't tell". Now I am not naïve enough to believe that there were no gays in the military in the past. But the system worked. The military is not there for some social engineer experimentation. Liberals are doing enough of that in the civilian world.

Obama is ushering in a kindler, gentler era for the interrogation of terrorists. They now have the same rights are any America, despite the fact that they want us annihilated. So terrorists will no longer be waterboarded, even if it were to save countless American lives. I wonder what his take on this would be, if it were his daughters in danger? Good news for us Americans is I can guarantee you there are patriots in this country who will tell Obama and any other liberal to kiss their butts, as they beat the crap out of somebody who could do us harm. I am happy to know a few such patriots.

Finally, Obama wants to shut down GITMO, for no other reason than he needs to throw a little raw meat to the pacifists. Where else are we to keep enemy combatants? Oh, my bad, there are no longer any terrorists or nor is there torture.  Let's just give them their day in court, paid for by the American taxpayer; don't worry, we can bear it. And when they are released on a technicality, just let them be free inside our country, with no traceability.  I feel safer already, how about you?

Of course the media has already ordained Obama "the smartest guy in the room" no matter the subject matter. The fact that he knows nothing about the military, military history, military policies or procedures doesn't detract from his ability to "social engineer" the only institution of the government that actually works.  I'd like to see him make better use of his time...maybe just make speeches?

Here's the wrap:

It has been told to me, that Marines who stand at the steps of Air Force One hold their salutes extra long when George W. Bush exits the plane. This gesture is the ultimate sign of respect for a Commander in Chief. 

For Clinton however, they ended their salutes abruptly, even before his back was to them, as a sign of disrespect. This gesture is second only to turning one's back to a ranking officer or not saluting at all.

I'm sure that the ghosts of many of our fallen heroes rose to take a look at the man who could benefit so much from their sacrifices, yet care so little for the cause of freedom. That the ideals for which they fought so hard could be so callously and carelessly disregarded.

I suspect that the ghosts of those American heroes at Arlington National Cemetery rose from their graves to meet the Liberal's Messiah, each turning their backs on him as he passed their grave markers.

That's my rant!

Goose bump inducing, dazzling literary imagery.

The Black Sphere said...

Thanks Digital. This one took on a slightly more serious tone for me, as I can have no more respect than for those who protect us.

I feel for those brave souls in the military because they are going to be assulted that will make the last 8 years from the media and Al Quedia look like war games with sticks and stone on the playground. It was rather sicking seeing the big O, and I don't mean tires, doing his song and dance for the camera's and photographers. Like you said, he would had visited an Al Queida graveyard not only to be fair, but to give respects to true freedom fighters in his sick mind.

And his desire to create the NSF. Not only does that insult the people in the military by saying any Tom, Dick, and Harry can do better, but its implications are totally frightening. Not only did the Brown Shirts got started that way, but so did Mao's Red Guard which pitted everyone against each other and did far more damange the SS did against their own people leaving 20 million dead. I tell my liberal fools that you think you had to fear the FBI with the Patriot Act, though not one could give an example how they were affected by it, but with the NSF you would had to worry about your mom, dad, child, sister, brother, next door neighbor turning aginst you. Heck, they may say you're disloyal because your dog did their business on their lawn. The Chinese have a proverb that says "Will there ever be an end to these interest times?" I, frankly, am losing sleep because times are getting far too interesting.

And that's MY rant. :)

Sorry to steal your line, but imintation is the best form of flattery, right?

The Black Sphere said...

Madmath1, you indeed flatter me!

Rose-Bud said...

Please, I can't beleive his nerve to visit Arlington National, and put his hand over his heart for the playing of Taps! This the same man who, when visiting the 911 memorial with President Bush and Laura Bush last year THREW his flower down on top of the others, while the Bushs bent down and gently placed theirs on the mound flowers. Boy, was I pissed! Did anybody else see that!
Then come to find out Michelle Obama wasn't there with Barack because she supposely didn't want the girls to miss school by them all flying to NY for the event, yet it was reported she flew to another state the next day to a campaign rally for Obama.
I can't stand a two-faced person!Back in the day we use to call those out for what they were, and and beat em up after school! Excuse me while I one to punch

Lilly said...

You said it perfectly! I was just shocked to see his hand over his heart...
God Bless our Troops!

Nothing else to say here.

These times leave me speechless.

he doesn't agree with Obama? He must be racist

~Rosemary said...

I cannot believe where we are headed.
This was well written Kevin.
So now I wonder, will he give "his military" one of those sloppy salutes that Clinton always did?

I am sickened by all of this. I am truly worried and saddened for our country.

God Bless our Troops

If Obama goes back on the Status of Forces Agreement it will truly undo the unquestionable gains we have made in Iraq these past few years.

On a side note Kevin, I'd like to let you know will be launching tomorrow. It's a social bookmarking site like Digg, except strictly for politics. I've been going around telling various conservative bloggers because I don't want Poprule to turn into Reddit, in that most social bookmarking sites today are seemingly owned by liberals. When I submit something it's immediately buried and trashed by liberal bloggers.

If we submit early, maybe that won't happen this time.

Oh Kevin I could not survive without your rants (truths). You say exactly what I would love to be able to blog about. BO is a hypocrite and all this has gone to his head. He may be the first Prez to have a nervous break down in office when he realizes he is NOT God.

The Black Sphere said...

Michael - I will check it out, but I must admit, all these soc-net sites are killing me!

The Black Sphere said...

Lilith - You CRACKED my face. First president to have a nervous breakdown...NOT God! Too funny!

I highly doubt that Obama will be the undoing of Americas military. The Blacksphere I usually agree with, but on this point he's out to lunch. Just calling it as I see it.

LoftyVenus said...

Wow I really hope that I don't slip into some psychotic depression due to BHO and what he's going to do to America - Christmas & Easter being my favorite holidays becuase God comes first - but the holiday that humbles me and brings me to thankful and loving tears is the 4th of July. What greater a sacrifice than one's own life? Jesus died for my sins and our friends and family in the miltary have died for my freedom. Ugh

LoftyVenus said...

you know that by reversing "don't ask don't tell" is going to DESTROY the military - and that just has to be yet another way for him to do it. Civilian Police force crap thing? Hello - brown shirts anyon?

The Black Sphere said...

Hey Lofty, visited your website to leave you a comment. Shoot me an email, so I can keep up with you. Thanks for the comments!

Three things I noticed when I watched Obama and Biden lay the wreath.

1. Obama and Biden both put their hands over their hearts during the ceremony.
2. Obama walked backwards to where he had been standing in a show of respect to the memorial.
3. Biden turned his back and walked away from the memorial back to where he had been standing.

I have never seen Obama show any sort of allegiance to either our flag or respect to any of our fallen military heroes, unless it was for political gain. Of course, Biden is just plain stupid..

Just my observation....

Just John said...

Now that he's my Commander In Chief, I cannot speak critically of him. I simply have to live vicariously through those that state the obvious, and endure the media orgy as well. Great piece.

The Black Sphere said...

JustJohn, we will speak for you, so live vicariously through us, until we get you a Commander-in-Chief befitting America's FINEST! Semper Fi my friend, in case you are a Marine. If are forgiven! Just kidding.
