Litmus Test for Top Officers: Willingness to Fire on Americans

Anyone familiar with Obama’s radical background will find this Facebook post by author Jim Garrow as believable as it is terrifying:

I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new “litmus test” in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks. “The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not”. Those who will not are being removed.

Garrow is a respected activist who was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his work rescuing baby girls from one-child China. His source is “one of America’s foremost military heroes.”

This certainly gives the urgent drive to disarm law-abiding citizens some perspective. It could also help us make sense of massive ammunition purchases by the increasingly frightening Department of Homeland Security.

According to the testimony of FBI informant Larry Grathwohl, the Weather Underground crowd that launched Obama’s political career estimated they would have to exterminate 25 million “diehard capitalists” to impose communism on America. This would be done at “reeducation centers” (a.k.a. concentration camps, gulags) in the time-tested oligarchical collectivist tradition.

In possibly related news, Obama is abruptly firing the head of Central Command, Marine Corps General James Mattis. General Mattis has been accused of asking too many questions regarding the Obama policy toward Iran. Could be he wasn’t willing to give the order Obama expects the next four years of Hope & Change to make necessary, and that the Oath Keepers are prepared not to follow.

Once the final pieces are in position, all that remains is for Obama to collapse the economy, Cloward-Piven style. A few more $trillion in wasteful spending should do the trick.

Larry Grathwohl tried to warn us.

    The danger here is obvious – American civilians will fire back at anybody that shoots at them. The thing that might change is “back” part, and Obama knows this and may even count on it. He is a threat to the Constitution.

    Joseph Stalin gradually became convinced that the leadership of the Red Army was planning to oust him from power. In June, 1937, Mikhail Tukhachevsky and seven other top Red Army commanders were charged with conspiracy with Germany. All eight were convicted and executed. All told, 30,000 members of the armed forces were executed. This included fifty per cent of all army officers.

    When the Red Army was originally established soldiers swore an oath to fight for international socialism. This was changed in January 1939 and recruits had to pledge himself “to protect with all his strength the property of the Army and the People and to cherish unto death his People, the Soviet homeland and the government of Workers and Peasants, also to respond at the first call from the government of Workers and Peasants to defend the homeland, the USSR.”

    The Red Army also contained political commissars whose role it was to ensure loyalty to Joseph Stalin and his government. Often members of NKVD, the Soviet secret police, the presence of political commissars created an inefficient duality of field command.

    With the execution of Pavlov and his generals, Joseph Stalin made it clear that he would punish severely any commander whom he believed had let down the Soviet Union. In future, Soviet commanders thought twice about surrendering or retreating. Another factor in this was the way that the German Army massacred the people of Minsk. Terrified of both Stalin and Hitler, the Soviet people had no option but to fight until they were killed.

    Also lets remember one thing. These officers may be telling the “O” and his loser staff what they want to hear. When the time comes, some of them may “reconsider”. We must all radical leftist from office. And to GOP, STOP with the idiotic compromising. We know better than to trust the likes of Hissy Mathews and his coterie of crybabies. Enough with the BS inside the beltway party circuit.

  • Secret Squirrel

    I remember hearing back in the 90s that soldiers had been asked if they would fire on US citizens and the majority said no they wouldn’t. If you put in fast track for citizenship in this country coupled with military service for illegal aliens what do you think would happen then?

    Top Ten Signs You’re a Fundamentalist Christian

    10 – You vigorously deny the existence of thousands of gods claimed by other religions, but feel outraged when someone denies the existence of yours.

    9 – You feel insulted and “dehumanized” when scientists say that people evolved from other life forms, but you have no problem with the Biblical claim that we were created from dirt.

    8 – You laugh at polytheists, but you have no problem believing in a Triune God.

    7 – Your face turns purple when you hear of the “atrocities” attributed to Allah, but you don’t even flinch when hearing about how God/Jehovah slaughtered all the babies of Egypt in “Exodus” and ordered the elimination of entire ethnic groups in “Joshua” including women, children, and trees!

    6 – You laugh at Hindu beliefs that deify humans, and Greek claims about gods sleeping with women, but you have no problem believing that the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary, who then gave birth to a man-god who got killed, came back to life and then ascended into the sky.

    5 – You are willing to spend your life looking for little loopholes in the scientifically established age of Earth (few billion years), but you find nothing wrong with believing dates recorded by Bronze Age tribesmen sitting in their tents and guessing that Earth is a few generations old.

    4 – You believe that the entire population of this planet with the exception of those who share your beliefs — though excluding those in all rival sects – will spend Eternity in an infinite Hell of Suffering. And yet consider your religion the most “tolerant” and “loving.”

    3 – While modern science, history, geology, biology, and physics have failed to convince you otherwise, some idiot rolling around on the floor speaking in “tongues” may be all the evidence you need to “prove” Christianity.

    2 – You define 0.01% as a “high success rate” when it comes to answered prayers. You consider that to be evidence that prayer works. And you think that the remaining 99.99% FAILURE was simply the will of God.

    1 – You actually know a lot less than many atheists and agnostics do about the Bible, Christianity, and church history – but still call yourself a Christian.

    As far as the Passover story goes (that was during the Exodus correct – I wanna check with someone who knows their Bible)? Anyway, weren’t those Jewish folks being held as slaves? Wasn’t that Pharoah character warned a few times about the consequences – like about nine times – with boils and blood and lice, so that he was aware that if he continued to keep them in bondage something worse might happen – like someone actually might get hurt? Wait, maybe you support slavery…

    It appears the U.S Military is fast transforming into giant PC bathhouse.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Thoughts on Veteran’s Day

    By Richard Spencer

    One doesn’t become a general without being, at least in part, a “political general,” and being a “political general” means being ready to recite the religious dogmas of the ruling class. Gen. George Casey had it down pat. Immediately after last year’s jihad-motivated Ft. Hood shooting, he announced that having a homogeneous, Euro-American military would be worse than mass murder. Said Casey:

    Our diversity, not only in our Army, but in our country, is a strength. And as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse.

    (I suspect that Gen. Stanley McChrystal couldn’t take the PC demands anymore and decided to go out swinging.)

    There remains a mystical bond between conservative Americans and the U.S. Armed Forces, as the Tea Partiers see them as the last bastions of honor and manhood. This certainly represents a healthy instinct on their part. But it’s hard for me not to see the military institutions as infected by PC just as thoroughly as the Department of Education — if not more so. The dirigiste natural of the military has, in fact, put it on the vanguard of social engineering: the armed forces were desegregated by executive order four years before Brown vs. Board of Education, and 14 before the Civil Rights Act.

    Today, the Navy advertises itself as a “Global Force for Good,” led by a multiculti crew of men and women who seek to “soothe” the “anguish of those less fortunate.” Lacking a recruiting slogan with such sweep, the Army has nonetheless succeeded in becoming multicultural in fact, a deed accomplished through year’s of affirmative action and the dumbing-down of entrance exams to embarrassing levels.

    @Scoop
    I hope that the administration has read some history of the French Revolution. The government was worried about the Parisian mob so the employed a young, up and coming colonel of artillery from Corcia to disperse the mob, which he did with ” a wiff of grape”. Not long after he staged a coup d’etate and made himself First Council and Emperor of the French. An officer who is willing to fire on his fellow citizens cannot be trusted to remain loyal to his government. Stalin was successful because the army supported the revolution. The hard left in this country despises the military and is dispised by them. Stupidity is often more dangerous than malice.

    Even if such a story were true (only verification would be if such fired people would come out in public and declare such demands were made of them to shoot Americans) it would only matter if frontline soldiers – the ones actually carrying guns would carry out such illegal orders. I doubt 90% of them would – and they would turn their guns on officers who issued such orders and frag em. I doubt they would even shoot Occupy Protestors unless they turned violent and started shooting at them or using other weapons.

    The folks on the left think everything, including truth, is not absolute. If some folks believe in thousands of gods, you knuckle-dragging Christians ought to be more tolerant and believe in more than one Supreme Being.

    As for the litmus test of officers, here’s my question:

    During 2005, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, how did the military and police justify going around and disarming law-abiding US citizens?

  • whotothewhat

    When I was in the Army National Guard back in the 80s, some of our training was for crowd control, although batons and CS gas would have been used no rifles would have been issued. But when it came to training in the field against a foreign enemy like in my case the Soviets. Any disobeying of a direct order could have gotten you shot by a superior. Case in point we were training for Bio attack, after moving thru the affected area we were to test the environment with either a test kit or if none available by having the lowest ranking member ie a private remove their mask and breath in the air. Seeing how it was me I was a bit concerned by this method, although it was training and no bio or chemicals were in the area I felt it was a bit archaic and brutal method of testing. I told my NCO in reality I would not remove my mask as long as I was carrying my rifle in which case he said, “then we would shoot you and move on”. It could have been bluster on his part but seeing how he was a decorated Marine who had served in Vietnam, and had several bronze and a purple hearts to show for it I took it as a direct warning that he would do what was necessary if ordered. I trust most in the military will do the right thing and stand with American people if the time comes. The problem comes from which, American people they will stand with?

    RE: Sam Adams says at January 23, 2013 at 9:01 am:

    “During 2005, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, how did the military and police justify going around and disarming law-abiding US citizens?”

    I don’t recall the military directly participating in that; in fact, there was controversy because some of the Soldiers participating in the relief efforts said they would NOT do it if they were asked.

    Thr police are another matter – what they did was in direct violation of the Constitution.

    In many States, “Katrina Legislation” was introduced. Here’s what was done in Delaware:

    “Article I, Section 20 of the Delaware Constitution guarantees the right of law-abiding citizens “to keep and bear arms for the defense of self, family, home and State”. During the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, local and state authorities in and around New Orleans, LA, declared a state of emergency and then used that state of emergency as an excuse to confiscate arms from law abiding citizens who were either relying upon those arms for the defense of self, family or home or were in the process of removing those arms from a place of danger to a place of safety so as to deprive the criminal element then present access to those arms.
    The purpose of this Bill is to ensure that Delaware’s Emergency Powers Act can never be used as an excuse for such inappropriate conduct within the State of Delaware. This Bill clarifies the existing provisions of the Emergency Powers Act so as to ensure that the provisions of Article I, Section 20 are not violated during times of emergency.”

    So, in other words, it’s illegal to violate the Constitution……which is illegal anyway.

    What’s more important is the precedent and the fact that it was RECOGNIZED as being wrong.

    As a Military Policeman I have an interest in this issue – and I know that some of the Guard units that went in there refused to participate. The media has IMPLIED that they did, but as far as I know there is no evidence it actually happened.

    The ignorance of Americans of their own history is amazing. American soldiers have fired on Americans, veterans at that. Ever hear of the Bonus Marchers-see what Patton, Eisenhower and MacArthur did when ordered to clear the camps in DC. They didn’t hesitate to fire and they killed doznes.

    Frankly I find the faith expressed disconcerting. Exactly who put the Japanese in camps. Do you really believe that there aren’t careerists in the military who care more about their positions, ranks, and rewards than they do their honor, their oaths, or justice?
