Obama Fires Or Kills off Military Officers Because He 'Fears a Coup'


We ask all fired Officers to please come to our side. Never in the History of our country have so many gallant and brave Soldiers been relieved of their command in such short order. This is destroying the morale of the real fighting men!


Marine Corp Times Report:
The commanding officer of Marine Corps Base Hawaii was relieved of his duties Monday following “a loss of trust and confidence in his ability to lead,” the service said.
Col. Eric Schaefer, who assumed command of the base in August, was removed from his post by Maj. Gen. Charles Hudson, the commanding general of Marine Corps Installations Pacific, according to a Marine Corps news release. Schaefer was reassigned to another position effective immediately.
“The Marine Corps holds all Marines, especially commanders, responsible for their actions, and is committed to upholding high standards of honor, courage and commitment within the ranks,” the release states.
No additional details about the relief or Schaefer’s new position were immediately available. Schaefer could not immediately be reached for comment.
Col. Christopher Snyder, the deputy commander of Marine Corps Installations Pacific, has been assigned as the interim commanding officer of Marine Corps Base Hawaii until a permanent replacement is named by Headquarters Marine Corps.
Schaefer, a career aviator with more than 2,000 flight hours, graduated from San Diego State University in 1991, according to his official Marine Corps biography. He served as the commanding officer of Marine Attack Squadron 214, which was named the Marine aviation attack squadron of the year in 2009 following a deployment to Afghanistan’s Helmand province.
From Commander, Naval Surface Force U.S. Pacific Fleet Public Affairs
SAN DIEGO (NNS) — The commanding officer of USS Lake Erie (CG 70) was relieved of his duties April 27, due to loss of confidence in his ability to command.
Capt. John Banigan was relieved by Rear Adm. Dee Mewbourne, commander of Carrier Strike Group 11. The decision was based on the findings of an investigation into poor command climate aboard Lake Erie, a guided-missile cruiser homeported in San Diego.
Banigan assumed command of the ship in May 2013. He has been temporarily assigned to the staff of Commander, Naval Surface Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet.
Capt. Douglas Kunzman, deputy commander of Destroyer Squadron 9, will temporarily assume command of Lake Erie pending assignment of a permanent relief.

Update Nov 12

Vice Adm. Ted Branch and Rear Adm. Bruce F. Loveless have both taken forced leaves of absence and had their access to classified materials suspended.

The news comes on the heels of the reports that at least two Navy commanders allegedly leaked inside information to Malaysian businessman Leonard Glenn Francis -- chief executive of the contractor Glenn Defense Marine Asia, which resupplies ships and submarines across Asia.
Federal prosecutors are reportedly accusing Navy Cmdr. Michael Vannak Khem Misiewicz, 46, of tipping off Francis to the worldwide movement of Navy ships so his company could obtain contracts to service those vessels at port.
Also reportedly arrested was Naval Criminal Investigative Service supervisory Special Agent John Beliveau, 44, who allegedly (and secretly) downloaded reports on his agency’s investigation into Glenn Defense Marine Asia -- and how it won a $125 million contract to service naval ships at ports of  call.
Such information allegedly allowed the company to bilk the U.S. government of more money – and even secure more contracts worth up to $200 million -- as it defended itself from the Navy's criminal investigations. 
The Post wrote in a past report that in return for the ill-gotten information, Glenn Defense Marine also supplied the officers with prostitutes, cash, luxury hotel rooms, plane tickets, and even tickets to a Lady Gaga concert in Thailand.
According to The Post, neither Branch nor Loveless has as-yet been charged with a crime or service violation, or been demoted. As director of naval intelligence, Branch serves as the Navy’s top intelligence officer.

But the paper cited a Navy official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, as saying the Naval Criminal Intelligence Service unearthed evidence of “personal misconduct,” by Branch and Loveless as part of the larger investigation into Glenn Defense Marine.
And the paper adds the alleged improprieties predate either man’s promotion to their current positions.
“We do believe that other naval officers will likely be implicated in this scandal,” Rear Adm. John F. Kirby, the Navy’s chief spokesman, told The Post in a telephone interview.

UPDATE NOV 10 2013 

3-star Navy admiral fired as deputy chief of nuclear command, demoted to 2-star rank

 This image provided by the U.S. Navy shows Navy Vice Adm. Tim Giardina in a Nov. 11, 2011, photo. The Navy says a Giardina was notified Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2013, that he has been relieved of duty as second-in-command at the military organization that oversees all U.S. nuclear forces. Giardina will drop in rank to two-star admiral as a consequence of being removed from his position at U.S. Strategic Command. He is under investigation in a gambling matter. (AP Photo/U.S. Navy) (The Associated Press)

The deputy commander of U.S. nuclear forces, Vice Adm. Tim Giardina, was notified Wednesday that he has been relieved of duty amid a military investigation of allegations that he used counterfeit chips at an Iowa casino, the Navy said.
The move is exceedingly rare and perhaps unprecedented in the history of U.S. Strategic Command, which is responsible for all U.S. nuclear warfighting forces, including nuclear-armed submarines, bombers and land-based missiles.
The Navy's top spokesman, Rear Adm. John Kirby, said Giardina, who had held the job since December 2011, is being reassigned to the Navy staff pending the outcome of the probe by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, which originated as a local law enforcement investigation in Iowa in June.
As a consequence of being removed from his post at Strategic Command, Giardina falls in rank to two-star admiral. He had been suspended by Gen. Robert Kehler, the top commander at Strategic Command, on Sept. 3, although that move was not disclosed publicly until Sept. 28.
After his suspension Giardina remained at Strategic Command but was not allowed to perform duties that required use of his security clearance.
The decision to take the next step — to relieve him of duty — was made on Oct. 3, one official said. That required approval by President Barack Obama, two defense officials said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the internal decision-making.
Kehler had recommended to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel that Giardina be relieved of duty and returned to the Navy, according to Pentagon spokesman Carl Woog.
A former commander of Strategic Command, retired Air Force Gen. Eugene Habiger, said he believes this is the first time in the history of the command that a deputy commander has been relieved of duty. Strategic Command was created in 1992 at the end of the Cold War. The aim was to unify the command of nuclear forces previously run separately by the Air Force and the Navy.
"I know of no other case ever of a deputy commander who was relieved for cause," Habiger said in a telephone interview. He headed the command from 1996-98.




USAF General Brown Dies in Mysterious Crash today: He was Investigating MISSING NUKES!

How the Benghazi lie was created to serve the Obama re election campaign. The construction of Benghazi talking points


As the hour grew late on the night of Sept. 14, the White House wanted to make one thing clear to the State Department and the CIA as the three collaborated on what would come to be known as the Benghazi "talking points," designed to be used by Congress and administration officials to explain what had happened three days earlier at the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya. The attack, which killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, was not planned, White House National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor wrote in an 8:54 p.m. email.

"There is massive disinformation out there," Mr. Vietor wrote. 

"They all think it was premeditated based on inaccurate assumptions or briefings. So I think this is a response to not only a tasking from the house intel committee but also [National Security Council] guidance that we need to brief members/press and correct the record."

The initial talking points ran six paragraphs long and said the crowd was a mix of individuals, but "that being said, we do know that Islamic extremists with ties to al-Qaida participated in the attack." The talking points went on to recount attacks against other countries' diplomatic missions in Benghazi and raised the prospect that the U.S. facilities were "previously surveilled" in anticipation of the attack.

By the time the talking points were approved a day later, they had been reduced to three paragraphs and any hint of terrorists or planning had been scrubbed. The final version said the attack was the culmination of "demonstrations" that were "spontaneously inspired" by protests at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo earlier Sept. 11, though it did acknowledge "indications that extremists participated in the violent demonstrations."

Benghazi and the administration's talking points have not gone away as an issue for Republicans.

On Tuesday, Rep. Frank R. Wolf, Virginia Republican, delivered a floor speech on the need for a special committee to answer several questions. He said he plans a series of statements and letters to the State Department to garner more information before the August recess.

"Perhaps the most telling sign of the incomplete state of the Benghazi investigation is the fact that not one of the survivors of the Benghazi attacks - from the consulate or the [CIA] annex - have publicly testified before Congress," Mr. Wolf said. "Despite nearly a full year of multiple committee investigations, not one witness has been brought before a committee to publicly testify under oath about what happened that night."

On Thursday, the House Committee on Foreign Affairs will hold a hearing on what Rep. Edward R. Royce, California Republican and committee chairman, calls "inadequacies" in the State Department's accountability review board and its report on Benghazi security failures.

A page-by-page examination of administration emails documenting the editing of the talking points shows a final product that got the facts wrong, but dovetailed with President Obama's campaign-mode narrative that a mob angry over an American video committed the attack.

The document has become the centerpiece of a Washington scandal, as Republicans charge that the White House attempted to cover up what really happened so as not to harm the president's re-election chances. Obama supporters say the exercise was standard interagency back-and-forth discussion as all sides tried to reach agreement on the facts.

Some findings from the pages of emails released by the White House on May 16:

- Obama aides ignored or discounted mounting evidence that the attack was planned - not, as they asserted, a spontaneous violent protest over an anti-Muslim YouTube video.

- During the exchange of emails, the FBI said al Qaeda was involved in the assault, yet the words "al Qaeda" were deleted from an early draft and never reinserted.

- State Department political appointees worked to delete any language that suggested there were warnings of an attack, saying it would leave Foggy Bottom open to criticism from Congress. 

(Congressional hearings later would show that the embassy in Tripoli had sent memos warning of increased violence and asking for more security.)

- An early CIA draft did not mention a protest at the mission in Benghazi. But by Friday afternoon, the word "demonstrations" was added twice, leaving the public to believe that random protesters were to blame for the attack.

- That initial draft also had errors. It said the attacks were inspired spontaneously by the protests in Cairo - an assertion that turned out most likely to be untrue.

Sept. 14
The CIA began drafting talking points the morning of Sept. 14.
CIA Director David H. Petraeus had met over coffee with members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence who wanted an unclassified report, or talking points, to give the press and public. Mr. Petraeus returned to CIA headquarters at Langley and started a drafting process that would occupy senior officials into the night.

At the CIA, hours after the attack, there was near unanimous opinion that Ansar al-Sharia, an al Qaeda-linked Islamic group, was responsible, an informed source told The Washington Times. CIA officers had been in Libya for months, had good contacts with various militias and were tracking Ansar al-Sharia.

What was murky was whether there was some type of protest at the same time. It was unclear at best. Neither the Benghazi mission nor the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli reported a demonstration. (The U.S. deputy chief of mission in Tripoli would tell Congress later that there was no protest and that no one in Libya talked about the video. He said no one at State consulted with him about the talking points.)

At 3 p.m. on Sept. 14, the CIA circulated one of the early drafts that reflected Mr. Petraeus' desire to say as much as possible and put the attack in historical context.

The draft document said the attack was "spontaneous," spurred by protests in Cairo, but did not say there was a demonstration at the mission. It continued: "We do know that Islamic extremists with ties to al Qaeda participated in the attack."

The draft mentioned that Ansar al-Sharia was attempting to spread jihad in eastern Libya and had posted a Facebook note not denying involvement.

It further noted previous plans for attacks in Benghazi against Western targets, including the British ambassador's convoy. It also suggested that the mission had been surveilled, meaning the attack was planned.

Some in the CIA directorate objected to blaming extremists linked to al Qaeda without more evidence.

Nonetheless, the first version of the talking points would prove to be highly accurate.

Yet few of its words would survive, especially once State Department political appointees and the White House joined the discussion. What is not known is what was said in conversations outside the email exchanges among State, CIA and the White House as edits were made and the final product took shape.

At 3:04 p.m., CIA public affairs sent the draft to the White House's Mr. Vietor, who had been an aide to Mr. Obama in the Senate and worked in the White House press office before moving to become NSC spokesman. Also on the list was Benjamin Rhodes, deputy national security adviser for strategic communication.

That version did not assert there was a protest and said Islamic extremists linked to al Qaeda participated in the attack.

The word 'demonstrations' appears

At 4:42 p.m. inside the CIA, a major change happened.
The word "demonstrations" showed up twice in the first and second paragraphs of a draft as a fact that day in Benghazi. The words "al Qaeda" were removed. The emails do not indicate who inserted the pivotal word "demonstrations."

Also added was the fact that the CIA sent a report Sept. 10 warning that jihadists were threatening to attack the embassy in Cairo on Sept. 11, the 11th anniversary of al Qaeda's attacks on America.
Still included was the language that "Islamic extremists" were involved. Language that had been added underscored that the CIA had been warning in reports to the administration "on the threat of extremists linked to al Qaeda in Benghazi and eastern Libya."
State gets on the email train

At 6:33 p.m., CIA public affairs sent the first draft to the State Department's public affairs office, then headed by Victoria Nuland, whom Mr. Obama has since tapped as assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs, pending Senate confirmation.
A career diplomat, Ms. Nuland has served under Democratic and Republican presidents, and was a national security adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney.

Ms. Nuland would play a major role in altering the document.

At 7:16 p.m., she asked the CIA how it knew extremists attacked.

At 7:39 p.m., she told the CIA and the White House that she did not want to blame Ansar al-Sharia. "Why do we want [Capitol] Hill to be fingering Ansar al Shariah, when we aren't doing that ourselves?"

She also objected to the language on CIA warnings, saying the words "could be abused by members [of Congress] to beat the State Department for not paying attention to Agency warnings so why do we want to feed that either? Concerned."

At 8:43 p.m., Mr. Vietor weighed in with an email to Ms. Nuland and Jacob Sullivan, then deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and now national security adviser to Vice President Joseph R. Biden.

"There is massive disinformation out there, in particular with Congress," Mr. Vietor wrote. "They all think it was premeditated based on inaccurate assumptions or briefings. So I think this is a response to not only a tasking from the house intel committee but also [National Security Council] guidance that we need to brief members/press and correct the record."

At 8:59 p.m., the CIA public affairs office sent Ms. Nuland a new version. The CIA held its ground, continuing to blame Islamic extremists and noting its warnings to the administration.

At 9:23 p.m., Ms. Nuland rejected the version. "These don't resolve all my issues or those of my building leadership," she wrote. She said the unidentified "leadership" was consulting with the White House. The emails do not disclose those conversations.

At 9:25 p.m., Mr. Sullivan told Ms. Nuland that he was talking to Mr. Vietor. "We'll work through this in the morning," he said.

At 9:52 p.m., public affairs told Mr. Petraeus that the redrafting had "run into major problems."

In between this exchange, at 9:43 p.m., CIA congressional affairs told other agency offices that the FBI said al Qaeda was involved in the attack.

At 10:42 p.m., the CIA fully capitulated with a lined-out version. Gone was the Sept. 10 warning from the CIA, any reference to Islamic extremists and any reference to CIA warnings about violence in eastern Libya.

One administration official in the email chain said the Sept. 10 warning was deleted because "they seemed to encourage the reader to infer incorrectly that the CIA had warned about a specific attack on our embassy."

Ms. Nuland said in the emails that she was worried about how she would respond to reporters asking how the U.S. was sure extremists were involved.

"I'll need answers to those if we deploy that line," she wrote.
Sept. 15

At 9:47 a.m., the CIA Directorate of Intelligence, the agency's analytical branch, sent to the CIA's Office of Terrorism Analysis, public affairs and the White House a whittled-down, low-information set of talking points.

It blamed the attack on "demonstrations." There was no mention of Islamic extremists, al Qaeda, Ansar al-Sharia or CIA warnings.
At a Saturday meeting of deputies - the No. 2 officials at Cabinet departments involved in national security - a final product emerged that reinserted the word "extremists."

At 12:51 p.m., CIA public affairs sent the scrubbed words to Mr. Petraeus, who wanted more information released to the public to help explain how four Americans - Stevens, his aide Sean Smith and two former Navy SEALs turned security officers - had perished that day.

At 2:27 p.m., Mr. Petraeus expressed his displeasure, wondering why there was no mention of the Sept. 10 cable to Cairo warning of an attack the next day - an event that did happen.

"Frankly, I'd just as soon not use this," he replied, but added that a decision would be up to the White House.

The talking points were sent to U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan E. Rice, who was chosen to be the face of the administration for the first post-attack Sunday talk shows. That Sunday, Sept. 16, she repeatedly blamed the attack on the anti- Muslim YouTube video - an assertion not in any version of the talking points. Mr. Obama would repeat the video argument in a speech to the United Nations later that month.

At the White House on Sept. 18, press secretary Jay Carney said: "I'm saying that based on information that we - our initial information, and that includes all information - we saw no evidence to back up claims by others that this was a pre-planned or premeditated attack, that we saw evidence that it was sparked by the reaction to this video."

On Oct. 9, on the evening of the first investigative congressional hearing on Benghazi, the State Department convened a conference call with reporters to express its new position, saying there was no protest that day linked to any video. Asked why that had been the administration story line, an unidentified official said, "That was not our conclusion."

Mr. Vietor did not respond to a message from The Washington Times seeking comment on his role.

The White House has maintained publicly that the talking points were based on the best intelligence at the time, and officials point to the erroneous claim in the initial draft that the assault was inspired by the Egyptian protests as evidence for how fluid the information was.

But Mr. Carney has acknowledged that the talking points Ms. Rice ended up using were inaccurate.
"It is absolutely true that that assessment turned out to be wrong. What is also true is what we have maintained from the beginning, that that assessment was made by and drafted by the CIA, the intelligence community. And when it proved not to be the case, we acknowledged that," he said.

Congressional Republicans say the White House is withholding other emails that would provide a clear picture of how the talking points were edited. Mr. Carney would not commit to releasing more, citing a right of the executive branch not to disclose confidential discussions to Congress.

Rep. Darrell E. Issa, California Republican and chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, has called Mr. Carney a "paid liar." He has issued subpoenas to the State Department for "all documents and communications" on how it influenced the CIA's first draft talking points.

And where was Obama during all this ? Sleeping... BULLSHIT... they just kept him in the loop vie a secret teleconference from the Family Quarters so that if something went wrong there would be "plausible deniability"

Obama has Saudi Osama Bin Ladin relative at the White House for July 4th Celebrations. Revolution Patriots sets this straight. This is so Blatant.

Obama is pissing on your lawn and daring you to do something about it!

See who showed up at the White House’s July 4th Party for Military Families?


Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, the much-discussed Saudi national once identified as a “person of interest” in the Boston Marathon bombings, at the White House for a 4th of July celebration for military heros and their families?
Apparent pictures posted on the Internet and a Saudi news outlet say yes.
A Twitter feed appears to show photos of the young man posing before the edifice – decorated with red, white, and blue banners to celebrate the holiday – in addition to close-up photos of the first couple.
They come from the Twitter account of an individual claiming to be Alharbi’s father, though that information has not been confirmed.
According to a professional translation of the account’s information, however, the given name is “‘Ali Al-Salimi Al-Harbi,” and the description reads: “Father of Abd Al-Rahman who was injured in the Boston bombings.”

The caption in the above photo, translated, reads: “We attended the celebration with my son Abd Al-Rahman and my son Issa.”
Another photo appears to show Barack and Michelle Obama greeting either someone in their group, or someone very close by.
The translated caption claims: “We greeted Obama and his wife…”

The images of Barack and Michelle Obama seem consistent with others from the day, in terms and appearance, though that doesn’t necessarily mean they are genuine.
Below is a picture from the news service Getty showing the same outfits:

Not only that, but a Reuters photo appears to show three men dressed in black suits photographing the band roughly in line with where the Saudi family’s Twitter pictures place them.  Their surroundings — down to the outfits of the individuals they’re standing next to — appear to align in both the Twitter and Reuters images, as well.

Though it’s difficult to see the details above, at full-size, one can make out that to the left of the suited men is an individual in a bright purple shirt, another in a turquoise shirt, and one in a blue and white shirt — as seen in the Twitter image. You can see a larger version of the Reuters picture by clicking on the above image.
So why would the Alharbi family have been at the White House for Independence Day?
According to some Arabic-language media, they were invited.
A recent post from the Twitter account in question links to a July 6 report from Al-Hayat – a widely-read pan-Arab daily newspaper – with the comment: “Today [Saturday] the Al-Hayat newspaper published a news item stating that Abd Al-Rahman and his family had been invited by the White House to participate in America’s Independence Day celebrations.” [Emphasis added]
A number of lingering questions remain on the issue, though the White House has not responded to TheBlaze’s inquiries.
First, was the Independence Day event actually by invitation-only?  Or, could anyone have their photograph taken on the lawn? If the party wasn’t by invitation-only, was the guest list at least pre-screened?
A White House pool report from the day indicates that the event was closed to the public, reading: “The President and First Lady [celebrated] the 4th by hosting ‘military heroes and their families’ along with administration staff and families at a White House barbecue and concert on the South Lawn.”

President Obama’s public remarks also say he spent the day with “a few hundred members of the military and their families.”

So is the story that they were invited to a celebration honoring military heroes a fabrication?  Or if the claims and photos are genuine – why did they receive an invitation?
It is possible victims of the Boston Marathon bombing were also among the invitees, but TheBlaze found no reports of mass invitations.  If that was the justification, Alharbi seemingly would have had to have been part of a selected group.
And if Alharbi truly was there, it wouldn’t be the first time Saudi outlets are reporting he has been close to the First Lady. According to reports in April, the First Lady visited the young Saudi in the hospital — and alleged pictures surfaced days later.
Not only was Alharbi named a “person of interest” in the Boston bombings, he was reportedly set for deportation on 212 (3)(B) grounds – “security and related grounds” — “Terrorist activities” — after the tragedy.
Sources told TheBlaze his file was altered on the evening of April 17 to disassociate him from the initial charges, and according to Glenn Beck, “someone later went in and tried to destroy both the original event file and an amended version.”
Even if he was invited, the fact that someone who is not an American soldier was there could spark interest.
Mysterious, indeed.
UPDATE: A law enforcement official with direct knowledge of the investigation into the Boston Marathon Bombing has confirmed to TheBlaze that the person in the photo is Alharbi.

From the BLAZE!!


PATRIOTS..... the time to be indignant about anything Obama does is long gone! Now the question quite simply is .."DO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE THE STOMACH AND WILL FOR A REAL STREET UPRISING" ... which is what we need and must do!

Everything else is BS... all the the bitching and the moaning and the hand wringing and agreeing on social media how awful it all is.... and the Talk Radio and Hannity
rants and Fox news.. to the Cabal is the "pressure valve" the "Useful Conservative Idiots" can blow off steam and never get onto the streets.

They are counting on this. If not they would have found a way to shut it all down already.

All this while they continue their inexorable march to Socialism. It so clear !!
