Sitting Ducks in a Row

Big Government apparently has enough money to assist a movie that glorifies the killing of white people with a $8.4 million subsidy, yet it can’t afford to refuel our aircraft carriers, so that they rust idly while the world spins out of control. China has rushed to fill the power vacuum by launching a stealth frigate. Even as Iran expands its naval capabilities, our presence in the Persian Gulf has been reduced to a single carrier. Now we see this:

aircraft-carriers-together

Original caption:

The aircraft carriers USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69), USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77), USS Enterprise (CVN 65), USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75), and USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) are in port at Naval Station Norfolk, Va. US Navy Photo

The Eisenhower at least is no longer there. But these carriers should never have been in the same place at the same time.

It’s as if Democrats are following up their attempted reenactment of the Great Depression by staging Pearl Harbor II. A single missile might take them all out. Or a strategically sunk ship could possibly keep them bottled up.

If our “Commander in Chief” hadn’t spent his life surrounded by people sworn to the destruction of the USA, this might be passed off as gross incompetence.

    Let’s play ‘what if’. If a person who hated US and wanted to destroy it could get his wish, how would he go about it?

    - destroying the currency (check)
    - destroying the economy (check)
    - destroying the defense (check)
    - dividing the nation (check)
    - attacking moral foundation (check)
    - confiscating the guns (work in progress)

    Remind me again what is the penalty for High Treason?

    Seems like a target-rich environment. Didn’t our enemies one time try to destroy our navy with a surprise attack…and the only thing that saved us was having a bunch of aircraft carrier not in port at the time….

  • dan

    this is a gilded invitation…when are they going to start arresting the traitors responsible for this ?

  • dan

    UPDATE: the Ike weighed anchor and is clear of the reefs.

  • dan

    oops….make that Thimble Shoals channel

  • rex freeway

    When will Americans catch on that Obumble’s only objective is to destroy America?

  • never let a crisis go to waste

    Stealth freighter you say? Hmmm…that freighter isn’t patrolling anywhere near the coast off Norfolk is it?

  • never let a crisis go to waste

    error: stealth frigate in case any grammar spelling nazi trolls are lurking around.

  • Jimbo

    The communists’ dipshit president knows his murdering muslim brethren have limited war capabilities so he’s trying to make it easier for them.

  • IslandLifer

    This is his “flexibility” at work. Idiots! The whole lot!!!

  • Flu-Bird

    USS ARIZONA,USS OKLAHOMA,USS NEVADA,USS CALIFORNIA all in BATTLESHIP ROW and what about the aircract lined up pararle to prevent sabatage? all on that faitful sunday on DEC 7th 1941 typical liberal policy

    Good Lord

  • Skyfall

    This is pure Obama, but not because of incompetence. There is no mistaking his hatred of American military superiority. As Commander In Chief, he has the ability and the will to do something about it…and he is.

    My anger grows by the minute when I think of my dad on a transport ship headed for Hawaii back in ’41. Very early in the morning on Dec. 7th, they unexpectedly changed directions…now heading for Perth, Australia. For the next 4 years, they had to deal with the consequences of that day.

    …and now we invite it all over again.

    High treason, indeed.

    Harrison J Bounel/Obama/Soetoro/Soebarkah is most definitely NOT “incompetent”. He is the most competent revolutionary Marxist this country has ever seen, and he is accomplishing the destruction he promised (hidden is redistribution) that he promised Joe the Plumber on a fast and steady pace.
    He would be pleased to see us militarily defeated, as that would get him where he wants the US much faster and easier (and safer in his own person) that destroying freedom one little political defeat at a time.

    Not to detract from the danger of losing five carriers at once, this just in:

    “First, the picture was actually taken in mid-December, not this month. Second, none was ordered into port for ‘routine maintenance.’

    The USS Enterprise was retired from the Navy in January. It’s being dismantled.

    The USS Eisenhower deployed on Thursday and is on its way to the Middle East to relieve the USS Stennis, which will return to its home port on the West Coast. The Eisenhower was in port for two months to get its flight deck resurfaced.

    The USS Harry Truman was to depart on a mission to the Central Command in early February, but Navy officials asked the secretary of defense to cancel that mission, which presumably was to the Persian Gulf where the U.S. has had two aircraft carriers. Now it will have one — the Eisenhower.

    The USS Bush was not ordered into port for “routine inspections.” It had been undergoing tests of its ability to have aircraft, which it does not presently have. Its cruise was canceled because of the sequester.

    The USS Lincoln also was not ordered into port for routine maintenance. It was in port for a two-year refueling mission, which the Navy has now canceled because of the sequester cuts.”

    Regardless of the above requirements, you would think all necessary caution would be taken to avoid the congestion, especially if the carriers had 300 or so total F/A – 18 Super Hornets and several anti-submarine helicopter squadrons, not to mention their invaluable strategic defensive radar systems intact.

    Aircraft carriers cost billions and take years to make and are irreplaceable in the short run. This is a stupid and dangerous logistical error, and signals (at least to me) that our naval planners are either cocky or complacent.

    Boston, Brooklyn, Florida, Puget Sound, Long Beach, to avoid disaster…? C’mon.

    Kinda like walking in a dark Southside Chicago neighborhood at midnight with hundred dollar bills falling from your pockets, a 2-carat diamond in each earlobe, while wearing an autographed pair of Air Jordan 1′s.

    Wouldn’t even matter if you were white.

    Let me get this straight, as far as the sequester goes –

    Entitlements for Obamaphone person lazy ass and her ilks’ upteen gillion illegitimate children, medicaid, disability EBT cards, pet insurance, cradle to grave $ from and more free sh$t – OFF THE TABLE (cannot cut even the rate of growth)

    Entitlements for Dream Act Conquistadors, Anchor Baby Senoritas and Welfare Third World Colonists – OFF THE TABLE (cannot cut even the rate of growth)

    LOANS for more Solyndras, third world enemies, and free fighters to Egypt – OFF THE TABLE (cannot cut even the rate of growth)

    MONEY to pay for Obama’s never ending capaigning, month long vacations, and trips to NY and LA to fundraise or catch a show – OFF THE TABLE

    Money to buy fuel and pay for our carrier groups and military to keeping the insane world in-check – TO SEQUESTERED AND CUT

    We’ve reached and surpassed the tipping point. Obama has his fundamental f’ed-up transformed America. The quicker the inevitable crash and civil war occurs and we get a the final opportunity to return this country to her Judeo-Christian moral underpinnings and free enterprise system, the better.

    Impound all of KING OBAMS THE finks ROYAL CARRAGES make the jerk walk like JIMMY(THE STUPID)CARTER did

    They’re using “budget cuts” to unleash even more havoc onto America:

    DHS releasing hundreds of illegal immigrants, blaming budget cuts

    Like others have remarked, it’s clear they are using this to blackmail the public into more spending. None of their pet programs like welfare and Obama Phones are being cut.

  • dan

    thanks Alpha ….good(better :) )intel….
    of course,I just used Google maps and wondered how the
    deployments off Iran (Hormuz) made it possible…but the best way to avoid a false flag disaster is to squak early and loud…distrust and verify with this admin/junta

  • Flu-Bird

    How much did FDR know about PEARL HARBOR before Dec 7th 1941?
