It is stunning to me that over the course of the past four years, our military generals are being eliminated for one reason or another. This ongoing list includes:
Gen. David Patraeus
Gen. William Ward
Gen. David Mc Kiernan
Gen. Stanley Mc Crystal
Gen. Carter F. Hamm
Well, there is five right off the bat. What do these brave men all have in common? They have all served under the Obama regime and have all been either fired, forced to resign, or forced to retire for one reason or another.
Knowing that these men all have held top positions in the military, and that they would have the means to remove an ineligible President by force if necessary, is it possible that the Obama regime wanted these potential threats out of the way in preparation for any future policy decisions that he may be planning to make?
Gunny G: Once UPON A Time There Were Generals…And Now…??? « AMERICAN BLOGGER: GUNNY.G ~ WEBLOG.EMAIL
It is often lamented that the Chesty Pullers, George Pattons, Curtis LeMays, Evans Carlsons, etc. are now long since systematically (pc) weeded from the ranks…
Well, there were GENERALS…and there are now…well, generals…
“Mrs. Puller protested to her husband citing previous trouble and controversy in Puller’s career. Puller told her, “…The important thing is the Marine Corps. If we let ‘em, they’ll tear it to pieces. Headquarters won’t speak up. It’s my duty to do it.”
“Puller was asked what he had learned here (PISC) as a recruit. He replied, “Well, the main thing–that I have rememberd all my life–is the definition of espirit de corps. Now my definition–that I was taught, that I’ve always believed in–is that espirit de corps means love for one’s military legion. In my case the United States Marine Corps. I also learned that this loyalty to one’s Corps travels both ways, up and down.“
Fastidiousness is never a good sign in a general officer. Though strutting military peacocks go back to Alexander’s time, our first was MacArthur, who seemed at times to care more about how much gold braid decorated the brim of his cap than he did about how many bodies he left on beachheads across the Pacific. Next came Westmoreland, with his starched fatigues in Vietnam. In our time, Gen. David H. Petraeus has set the bar high. Never has so much beribboned finery decorated a general’s uniform since Al Haig passed through the sally ports of West Point on his way to the White House.

Can a General Call Suicide “Selfish”? (“…I have now come to the conclusion that suicide is an absolutely selfish act. I am personally fed up with soldiers…”)
On his army blog of January 19, the commanding general of Fort Bliss (Texas), Major General Dana Pittard, wrote regarding members of the military who commit suicide:
“I have now come to the conclusion that suicide is an absolutely selfish act. I am personally fed up with soldiers who are choosing to take their own lives so that others can clean up their mess. Be an adult, act like an adult and deal with your real-life problems like the rest of us.”
According to the National Journal, “Pittard’s blunt comments about suicide have raised eyebrows throughout the military. . . .

Polk Award-Winning Rolling Stone writer Michael Hastings made a startling set of admissions on CSPAN, recently. Not only did he admit that most “journalists” are liberals, but he implied that they really aren’t interested in just reporting the facts of stories. Instead, he said, they are filled with a liberal “moralistic righteousness” and their goal is to “afflict” those they disagree with.
In the discussion, Hastings laid out how he sees his work as a journalist. “I think any journalist worth his salt often has a real moralistic kind of righteousness to them somewhere in their soul… and we talk in grand terms about ourselves, you know, afflicting the powerful and comforting the afflicted,” he told the CSPAN host.
Not much “objectivity” going on there, is there?
In the video segment featured by Townhall, Hastings is initially asked about his “prestigious” Polk Award and this discussion led CSPAN’s Brain Lamb to ask Hastings about the ideological mindset of Polk Award winners. This brought Hastings to his admission.
Of course, if one has to explain how “prestigious” an award is, one should suspect it ain’t that prestigious! Prestige is something that others should assign to you, not something you should assign to yourself.
