General Stanley McChrystal, Obama, Major General Paul E. Vallely, Oath of office, Patriot or career soldier
“These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.”…Thomas Paine
I read the Rolling Stone article about General Stanley McChrystal. This is the strongest statement that I read from General McChrystal.
“Even though he had voted for Obama, McChrystal and his new commander in chief failed from the outset to connect. The general first encountered Obama a week after he took office, when the president met with a dozen senior military officials in a room at the Pentagon known as the Tank. According to sources familiar with the meeting, McChrystal thought Obama looked “uncomfortable and intimidated” by the roomful of military brass. Their first one-on-one meeting took place in the Oval Office four months later, after McChrystal got the Afghanistan job, and it didn’t go much better. “It was a 10-minute photo op,” says an adviser to McChrystal. “Obama clearly didn’t know anything about him, who he was. Here’s the guy who’s going to run his fucking war, but he didn’t seem very engaged. The Boss was pretty disappointed.””
McChrystal, is that the best you can do?
From a real General, a real patriot.
From a speech given at the Lincoln Reagan Dinner on June 5, 2010 in Virginia City, Montana by Major General Paul E. Vallely, retired.
“I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same, that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”
“We now must call for the immediate resignation of Barry Soetoro (AKA President Barack Hussein Obama) — based on Incompetence, Deceit, Fraud, Corruption, Dishonesty and Violation of the US Constitution.
And a call for a National Petition for new elections to select the next President of the United States of America must be initiated. We can wait no longer for a change of Power and new Government.”

Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin facing court martial
“You serve as my commander-in-chief. Given the fact that the certification that your campaign posted online was not a document that the Hawaiian Department of Homelands regarded as a sufficient substitute for the original birth certificate and given that it has been your personal decision that has prevented the Hawaiian Department of Health from releasing your original birth certificate or any Hawaiian hospital from releasing your records, the burden of proof must rest with you,”
CDR Charles Kerchner, lead plaintiff in Kerchner v Obama and Congress
From a recent Post & Email interview.
“MRS. RONDEAU: That brings up another question. Why do you think more active military members are not doing what Lt. Col. Lakin is doing?
CDR. KERCHNER: Because they risk their career. As you can see already, Lt. Col. Lakin is not being given a fair shake; you see what’s happening with him.
They changed his evaluation. He had an outstanding evaluation just a couple of months ago, and they just did one at the end of May which trashed him. He had been up for promotion to full Colonel, and he’s no longer going to be promoted.
The military is supposed to be devoid of politics, in a sense. It’s very, very difficult for an active-duty military person to stand up alone and buck the powers that be in Washington when they are corrupt. It’s very dangerous and very difficult for a person in the military to do that, because you have a set of rules governing you, the UCMJ, which don’t govern the rest of the citizenry. You’ve given up some of your freedom, so to speak. The thing is, though, the military does take an oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I never thought about that word domestic in the oath much until Obama came along.
I believe in God, I believe in my country, I believe in my family, and I will fight to the death for all three of those. I took my oath, and I believe those words, and I meant those words, “so help me God.” I feared for the loss of my liberty and my inalienable rights guaranteed under the Constitution for which our forefathers fought during the American Revolution. These were codified into the fundamental law of the nation when they wrote that contract for the protection of the sovereign and free people in the several states, the U.S. Constitution. This contract limited the power of the new federal government and protected our rights and liberty, my rights and liberties. I feared loss of liberty if this usurper were allowed to take office and continue to remain in office for any length of time. I did not trust Obama to protect me. If he and his progressive sycophants in Congress can ignore and usurp one part of the Constitution, Article II, Section 1, Clause 5, then he will ignore and usurp other parts, such as the Bill of Rights. That’s why when I saw the other suits failing, I felt as if I was almost being called and told, “You have to stand up, Commander Kerchner. You must live up to your oath to support and defend the Constitution. You have to stand up and fight this battle. You must do this.”
I took an oath to the Constitution of this country. We’re a nation of immigrants, and believe me, Obama’s father wasn’t one. But we’re a nation of immigrants, and the glue and sinew that holds this country together is that Constitution. Without it, we never would have made it this far, and we won’t make it much further if it falls apart. That’s the natural and universal law that unites us all. Our inalienable rights granted by God, nature’s law created by God – that’s what holds us together, and if we lose it, the country is doomed.
I had a lot of anxiety before I filed the case, but as soon as I filed it, a certain peace came to me, and I haven’t lost a moment’s sleep since then. It’s as if I answered the call and now I’m being protected. I will continue to fight this battle until the truth and Constitution are upheld and the usurper in the Oval Office is removed, so help me God.”
General McChrystal, with all due respect to your prior military service, are you going to stand up to Obama and fulfill your military officer oath? You did not pledge allegiance to Obama or the president. You pledged allegiance to the US Constitution.
General McChrystal, you voted for Obama. This reveals that you are uninformed or that you do not care.
To all active and retired military. If you do not know or understand the facts, get off your ass and get answers. I expect more from the US military. And yes, military officers, you pledged an oath to “defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” We expect you to follow that oath. And yes, General McChrystal, and any other US Military officer, I will face you in person and repeat these words.
