Barack Obama: Conduct Unbecoming

     In the military, there is a charge under which an officer can be court-martialed: Conduct Unbecoming.
     When our Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution, they chose not to make military service a requirement for a potential presidential candidate. The office of President of the United States is a civilian office. Our founders did this for obvious reasons; the layman need only see military regimes around the globe in order to understand.
     But, that may have led to a flaw in our system of government. You see, Conduct Unbecoming an Officer can be anything from swearing at a superior officer to mass murder. Any number of behaviors can result in such a charge before a court-of-martial. An officer represents the military and the United States of America, and is expected to conduct himself accordingly at all times.
     The President is Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces. Every member of the military ultimately answers to him. How is it that they are held to a higher standard than their Superior Officer?
     For the sake of brevity, I will limit my argument to this past week.
     Little Barry has been on a week-long temper tantrum. Here is what we have witnessed:
     Two days of silence after Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu's election victory. (Yet POTUS managed to get his brackets in to ESPN.)
     The most childish excuse for a congratulatory phone call (when he was finally able to remember the number!) I have ever heard of. (He did not congratulate the Prime Minister on his win, but rather on Likud's gains in the Knesset.)
      Threats to revolt against Israel at the United Nations.
     Scoldings from the State Department over statements attributed to the Prime Minister.
     Scoldings from the White House over statements attributed to the Prime Minister.
     White House "officials" claiming the Israeli Prime Minister cannot be trusted.
     And, of course, we are "reassessing" our relationship with Israel.
     Among other things.
     Is this any way for the United States of America to conduct itself?
     Is this any way for the Commander-in-Chief to conduct himself?
     Would such behavior be tolerated from a general or an admiral?
     What about from a major?
     A lieutenant?
     Or, even a private?
     Barack Hussein Obama is guilty of Conduct Unbecoming, and should be stripped of his command.

Dreams and Things (Benghazi, Part Four)

This is out-of-control. I finally get more than two hours of sleep at a shot, and my dreams (nightmares, to be more precise) are all about terrorism? I even had a segment featuring Alan Dershowitz! OMG
The one about Trey Gowdy was the most entertaining, and thought-provoking. In my dream, the congressman discovered I was going over Benghazi, and that I was disturbed by what he said on Greta van Susteran's show last December (see previous post on Gowdy for details). He was rather amused, and set up shop one evening watching me go back through old videos. (For some reason I was doing so at a bank of computers set up inside of a restaurant/bar with an endless supply of free alcohol and cigarettes. Go figure.)
When I awoke, Gowdy's words from that interview were ringing through my memory: "...I think we will find...." Technically, not a lie. I can "think we will find" that the Moon is made of Swiss cheese. Is it true? No. But, did I state categorically that the Moon IS made of Swiss cheese? No.
BUT, do I think for one instant that anyone is really going to find that the Moon is made of cheese? Of course not, and therein lies the rub. There is no reason for me to make such a statement other than an (extremely lame) attempt at deception, and there was no reason for Congressman Gowdy to make his statement other than for the same purpose. So, I remain disturbed on this point.
Speaking of Libya, what happened to that "War Behind the War" story starring Hillary Clinton as Commander-in-Chief, giving orders to General Ham while Congress and the Pentagon worked back channels feverishly trying to stop a madwoman from overthrowing Qaddafi?
CNN recently interviewed my former congressman, Leon Panetta, and while they did ask him about Hillary's potential presidential run in 2016, there was not one question to the former Secretary of Defense/Director of CIA on this issue. In fact, Mike rogers was interviewed during the same hour and not one question was directed at him, either.
And...we are back to Kris Paronto:
I would like to take a survey. Tweet me at @LaDonnaRae1961 if you are current or former law enforcement (police, investigator, prosecutor, FBI, CIA, etc.) and have ever had word-for-word agreement between eyewitnesses to an event at the time of that event, never mind two years later.
Minute one, of day one, of Combat 101: Control communications. Other than entertaining side stories, can anyone find material differences between the account of Benghazi given in "13 Hours" and the following Fox News summary given on November 3, 2012?
Neither can I.
CIA is diverting attention away from something, and I will be looking to find out what that is.
Everyone, you do realize those were our "rebels" in Libya lined up on the beach beheading Coptic Christians, right?
Egypt should be bombing US.
