Chiquita Cicada on the Military Purge

Chiquita Cicada


Good morning Breakfastpoppers. Today is Tuesday, December 3, 2013. Let me introduce myself. I am a friend of Breakfastpop's. In light of the present mess your country is in, she has turned to her friends, of whom I am one, to share our observations with you. Bpop is BUGGED and rightly so.

Putting things mildly, your nation is in a shambles. Your Preident Obama, has kept his campaign promise. He told you that he was determined to "change" your nation once and for all and change it he has. Look around you. Do you see what I see?

I see an IRS that is acting like the KGB with the blessing of the administration. Where is your Congress in all of this? I see a terror attack in Benghazi being ignored. Why did your President not retaliate for this travesty? Where is your Congress in all of this? I see your healthcare system in pieces. I see a President who knowingly lied to all of you over and over again and is still lying to you. What I don't see is a viable solution to this horror. Where is your Congress in all of of this.

A Sleeping Giant

Dear friends, the list of scandals is quite long. We have much to talk about, but this morning I hope you will permit me to zero in on a dangerous effort being made on the part of the Obama administration to purge your military of leaders who are critical of Obama and his agenda. This administration is firing hundreds of senior officers. The effort has been going on rather quietly for over five years. The goal is to create a new kind of army and a new kind of leadership. President Obama is creating what is referred to as a "compliant officer class". In simple terms, President Obama wants a military that follows and never leads. President Obama wants a military that agrees with all things Obama. If you aren't scared now, you should be. Your military is being torn down bit by bit. Morale is low and the desire to leave the service is escalating. The end result is that you will have an Obama Military ready and willing to do anything he wants. To hell with common sense, the Congress, the Constitution, the rule of law or the people. If you aren't scared, you should be.

Retired Army Maj. Gen. Patrick Brady, a Medal of Honor recipient, believes that the military is being decimated to the point that members no longer feel prepared to fight and have lost the desire to win. This is the future of your great nation through the eyes of a President who never believed in the greatness of America. He deplored, by his own admission, the notion of an exceptional America. He degraded and debased you in the eyes of the world and he is continuing to do so. His refusal to retaliate for Benghazi spoke volumes and in its pages told the story of a nation afraid to step up to the plate. That's the way President Obama wants it. His vision is not your vision and, God knows, if it is your vision you don't belong here.

President Obama and his "friends" like Valerie Jarrett are doing everything humanly possible to emasculate your nation. Political correctness and the fear of retaliation have imposed a gag order on those you chose to represent you and on the ordinary guy on the street. The end result is the loss of freedom.

Remember when your country was referred to as the land of the free and the home of the brave. Those days are gone. You aren't free. In case you haven't noticed you aren't free to speak out and criticize the government. The administration is "purging" the military. You won't be far behind.

I am Chiquita Chicada and I'm here to say

I wish your President would just go away......


I can't hear you!!!

Wow, seeing this hub from one of my most favorite writers is like an early Christmas present. Chiquita, please give your boss a big hug from me.

I wonder how many are aware of what is going on inside our Military? I imagine this restructuring of the Military was part of the "Change" we were promised. In fact, "Change" is perhaps the only promise this President has kept.

If the number of voluntary enlistments continues to decline, it is possible the draft will need to be implemented again. I have to wonder if any of those who voted him back for a second term have any regrets.

I just don't think the damage created by this administration will be repaired in my lifetime. At times I am glad I will most likely not be around to see the full impact of "Change."

It is great to see you back.

Good Morning Old Poolman and good friend,

Thank you so much for your warm welcome. I have missed the good and stimulating company of people I truly admire. As for this purge of the military, we are in deep trouble. This year alone 200 officers were relieved of duty. Congress is truly asleep and totally useless. They hold some hearings and the issues fade away without being truly resolved. I too just can't see a way out of this mess. The damage is just too severe. The Inn is still open so I'll see you there. Drinks are on me.!

Good Morning gmwilliams,

You have no idea how wonderful it is to "see" old friends. I can't thank you enough for the warm welcome. As for our nation, well we should hold a funeral. See you at the Inn. We need it more than ever.

Great to see you back!! You think firing of officeres is bad? Just check out what is being done to benefitss and pay of the military. Many benefits are being reduced. A shame. Are we still going to the inn?

Good Morning taxlarry,

How wonderful to "see" you this morning. Thanks so much. You are right, this administration is cutting back benefits to the very people trying to protect us from our enemies. Too bad they can't protect us from Obama. Perhaps that's why they are being forced out of the military. Obama has a lot to answer for and so does Congress. These are dangerous times. I am so happy to say that yes the Inn is still open. I hope to see you there tonight and rest assured everything is on me. I can't thank all of you enough for welcoming me back.

Wow! Pop is back!

My wife and I looked at each other in real alarm when we first heard Obama say this:

“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

We were right to be alarmed.

Cicada is doing us a huge favor by filling us in on some of the details of Obama's "Remaking" of America. Cicadas make a whole lot of noise, and our media is supposed to do the same when things need to be said. Listen to the noise the media is making........................I don't hear anything! And to boot the majority of Americans are concerned with one thing: prosperity. Cicada, I believe that's the primary reason Obama has been getting away with things like this; Americans are hoping that whatever Obama is doing will bring back the good times. If the good times roll nothing else matters. (Good to see you back.)

Chiquita knows whereof she chirps. And do you, bp. Good to have you back where you belong (great song lyric, no?) It's not difficult to understand that decimating the military is all part of Obama's master plan to 'level the playing field.'

Good Afternoon Willstarr,

Thank you so much for welcoming me back. I missed the back and forth and the pleasure of your company and the insightful comments. History will engrave those words for all time and it will say that we were warned and yet we walked right into the death of our nation completely unaware and unconcerned. The Inn is open and awaiting your arrival. All the drinks and goodies are on me.

Dear Hxprof,

Thank you so much for coming to say hello and leaving your always welcome comments. The interesting thing is that Obama is doing his very best to create a nation of needy dependent people, in other words Dems with their hands out. The" milleniums" are bearing the rotten fruit of his efforts. The Inn is back in business and I would love to see you there. All drinks and anything else you want is my treat.

Good Morning drbj,

It is wonderful to be back and even better to have you stop by. I hope all is well with you and yours. The cicadas in my backyard go mad whenever they see Obama on television spreading the lies. The election might have turned out differently if BUGS could vote! The Inn is back in business, so I'll see you tonight!

To the substance of your Hub, it seems we are also purging military leaders with firm religious (Christian) connections. General George Washington would have been force into retirement under this scenario. How many good military leaders are being sidelined by the current purge?????

HI POP: You are backkkkk Hurray! I missed you, and all your followers.

I haven't had an outlet for my political frustrations since you left. Lucky me that you are back.

Obama has been replacing many high level officers for some time now. He is weakening our military and our country. This will be his legacy, not the failing ACA; however, in keeping a positive light on all of this mess, November is quickly approaching. We will have a conservative Congress, and he will be a two year lame duck, (almost had a spelling error there!) Congress is wising up and feeling braver as they explore Obama's usurping Congress by using Executive Orders. It is starting.....

I am off to the bar now. I have missed everyone. Save me a seat.....

Good Morning Gawth,

This year 9 generals and flag officers were relieved of duty. Colonels who would be ready to replace generals are leaving the military and offering their talents elsewhere. This purging of the army has been going on for 5 years. As for the administration's attempt to remove religion from the military, the attempt is evident. The Obama Administration is pushing a secular anti-religious culture on our armed forces. The Defense Department has confirmed that military personnel could face disciplinary action, including court martial, for sharing their faith with others. I can't believe we've come to this. To the Inn Gawth! It may be the last free place in the nation!

Good Morning Pino,

How wonderful to see you this morning. I missed your insights and your sense of humor. You should have opted for that "spelling" error. It would be very accurate and deserved. Just think about it. Obama is ruining our economy, our health care, our military, our religious freedom and the fabric of our society. He wants a compliant military and a compliant people. That has been his goal all along. See you at the Inn. We need to catch up. I'll save you a seat.....

I would hope that those in Congress who do not wise up will soon be seen standing in the unemployment lines. But wait, most of them have been able to steal enough money they will never have to work again.

Dear Mike,

And let's not forget about their pensions! All those fools do is meet and accomplish absolutely nothing. We live in a nation without consequences. Kill an Ambassador and the silence is deafening. Screw up ObamaCare and no one is held accountable. In the Obama Administration screwing up and lying is grounds for a promotion! To the Inn my friend! I'll be waiting.

Old Poolman profile image

Old Poolman 3 years ago from Rural Arizona

Accountability is not something that is commonly practiced in Washington. We have seen any number of failures in government that would have resulted in immediate termination of employment in the private sector. Yet nobody pays the price, and many times those who fail in government are promoted to jobs with more responsibility.

The larger this monster gets, the more failures we will see. It is beyond time for Congress to demand accountability in Washington, and time for we citizens to begin holding our elected representatives responsible for their performance.

We voters are also guilty of not demanding accountability from those we elect to office to represent us. We have a chance in 2014 to replace at least some of those who have not been doing the job we pay them to do.

Voter ignorance and apathy must also bear some of the blame for the position we are in today. We let it happen because we were not paying attention. Shame on them and shame on us.

Dear Mike,

How right you are. I see apathy all around me. I see ignorance of the facts. I see ignorance of events. I have spoken to people who have told me that they aren't following the ObamaCare fiasco because they have insurance through their company. If I try to tell them that they might lose that coverage they look at me like I am a fool. When Obama was elected, as a nation we were ripe for the pickings. He won because a majority of the voting public were oblivious, uninformed and completed disinterested in the truth. Until these people are personally affected by Obama's policies the ignorance and indifference will continue. As far as accountability is concerned, that only exists in the private sector. Government is fueled by incompetence and it is routinely rewarded. I may sleep at the Inn tonight!

So glad to see you back and with a hub that should make anyone take a second look in case they have been living under a rock. I have missed your daily insights about this miserable administration, particularly the man who thinks he is God or perhaps a king. I will drop by the bar just in case you are there. It would be great fun it have a drink and another lively conversation. Excellent hub.

Good Morning Pamela,

I am so happy to "see" you. I missed everyone and I decided that coming back was the best thing to do. As for Obama, I honestly believe that those people who still sing his praises are mentally ill. I am at the Inn and I would love to see you. I'll save you a seat. We need to catch up.

From those I know in the military, it is not the power it used to be. There are a lot of weak links and if we really needed protection, it may not be adequate. Sad to say but they are being censored and "told" what to do.

Good Morning teaches,

Imagine having a president whose goal is to weaken our nation in reality and in the eyes of the world. It is almost unbelievable.

You and Chiquita are correct. And so where do we go from here?

One thing is to make noise as you say. My concern is 'who is listening'?

WHO? Who gives a flying flip?

I do, you do, and many of my family members and friends do ...many are in the armed services or retired from....

It is scary. Very scary....hopefully we can make a difference when the administration changes...but as I have said many times, it seems that whomever walks into the Oval office loses his mind!!!!! Just my humble little opinion...

We must be ever watchful and vigilant and know that we must have each others' backs.

Thank you for writing and keeping your voice out there.

Angels are winging to you with many blessings this morning

Voted up+++

Good Morning pstraubie,

I want to believe that people are listening, although I have been told from time t o time that I am wasting my time and nothing I do will make a difference. I am exercising my right of free speech and I am fighting for my country in my own way. When Obama is out and someone decent is in, we will have a prayer. We are going to need a miracle. See you at the Inn.
