All Hail King Obama


When Will We Impeach This Tyrant?

February 14, 2012

Sometimes, I simply don’t want to go to my door to pick up my cherished Wall Street Journal.

This bit of terrible news today however came via Twitter thanks to one @JosephAGallant

As the wife of a retired Army Colonel, I tried, to the best of my ability, to assist my husband (some thirty-three years) in serving our soldiers. I always said my husband made a successful career of the Army despite me. I am too outspoken, I won’t kiss up to anyone – I either like you or I don’t and don’t really care if you like or don’t like me back. My associations were never based on attempting to help further my husband’s career. Army wives don’t truly have that kind of influence anyway despite what you might have garnered from military-like soap operas – but it certainly didn’t stop some from trying…

As is my habit, I digress…

So it came as something of a shock to me when I stumbled upon this very alarming article:

Military Chaplains to be Charged with Sedition and Treason for Preaching Against Sin

Read more: Military Chaplains to be Charged with Sedition and Treason for Preaching Against Sin

I'm an optimist. Before going through this article I hoped this was merely a misunderstanding. The let down was shocking. The reality of this situation literally sent chills down my spine. The Obama administration is in essence, threatening to jail people for serious crimes if they exercise their constitutional rights.

The Catholic Church sent out a letter to all Catholic Military Chaplains stating essentially, the Church “cannot and will not comply with this unjust law.”

To which the secretary of the Army immediately issued a letter threatening any Chaplain who reads the letter to anyone in its entirety, with charges of serious crimes should they invoke their constitutional rights and read certain portions of the letter that disagrees with the Obama administration. The Chaplains were ordered to disregard their Constitutionally protected rights and obey their King, President Obama.

Former Navy chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt said,

The secretary of the Army said you have to line out some of the language, or else we’re going to charge the chaplains with sedition and treason for opposing the Obama administration. Can you believe this? They are actually threatening chaplains with court-martial if they dare to preach against sin in their own church.

This wanton and unfettered grab for power that persists throughout the Obama administration’s term should concern any citizen, be they any ethnicity, any political party or any legal citizen of the United States.

What those who back this lawless current administration don’t understand is someday, their guys won’t be in power. Would they want the same loss of liberty to be applied against them when “the other guys” have taken over? How would Obama supporters feel if in another administration people were rounded up and thrown en masse in jail for participating in a Gay Pride Parade? Or if Greenpeace members were lined up in front of a firing squad and shot for gathering together for a meeting?

This is where this kind of unabashed abuse of power is leading! This type of abuse of power historically has always gone both ways. Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Read this article. If it is true, we are in deep, deep trouble. This country was founded upon the idea that no leader/king/despot like Obama could trample on our constitutionally protected rights as stated in the First Amendment, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech.”

Read this article We the People and be aware of the fact this doesn’t simply apply to these Chaplains.

Read this article We the People and if you choose to stand by and do nothing to stop this tyranny, be prepared to weep for a nation lost.

It seems as if George Weigel was right. More and more the US is slowly becoming totalitarian with Obama as president and the Democrats a majority at the Senate.

Excellent exposé. It is, alas, TRUE. For more on this, read Oliver North's article.

Sooz - I honestly don't think I can believe it. There are some other disturbing revelations in that article as well. What has happened to our country and why haven't the Republicans started impeachment proceedings??? I just don't get it!

Thanks for leaving your thoughts!

This is horrid. If it weren't so hurtful to the nation I would suggest mass resignations of the officer corps. This Commander-In-Chief is not worthy of their loyalty.

Honestly Tom - I was thinking of the same thing. Every Chaplain should resign and every single Officer should refuse to obey this terrible President's abuse of power. But that of course, won't happen. Loyd Austin - now the number two man in charge of the Armed forces is a WONDERFUL soldier and MORAL man. We can only pray that some sanity will prevail.

Thanks for coming by and chatting with us Tom! Always nice to see you.

The problem is that when the other guys take over there is no move to the right. All that the Republicans do is hold the place until the Democrats take over and slide everything further left. Even the "Bush tax cuts" have sunset provisions. Nothing that the liberals do ever sunsets once they leave.

officers are nothing but a bunch of self serving sobs. Many years ago the air farce lost an F4. Found the back seater not the pilot. I vol. to go down and look for him (army sf medic) i found him both legs broken face so swollen he could not see. I carried him to the top of a hill and called in artilery all night long. They picked us up. He got a silver star for saving me!!

Michiganman - you know as well as I do - when Democrats are in charge - they make a horrible mess of things. Take Michigan. We went from 49th in the nation attracting new business when Granholm was governor (a Dem) to today - after Governor Snyder has been in office only 14 months - to 7!! Everything has improved in Michigan in just one year of Snyder taking office. Now how is that possible after Granholm's eight years of disastrous governing? Just put a Republican in charge, that's how!

You are correct though about the Republicans. They are by no means perfect and the answer to everything. Your observation about them often merely "holding the place" is spot on in particular with federal politics. However, I hope the times, they are a changin'!

Well Gusser - I'm still holding out hope that the end isn't near YET. While there is breath there is hope...

This is mind-boggling. I used to think of the O-Bomb as nothing more than a failure, after all why has he made all of these mistakes? Instead, I now believe he is the one who should be tried for sedition as everything he does is an overt attempt to overturn the Constitution. His policies touch every part of society and aimed to change the United States as we once knew it.

Voted up and awesome!! But here is one thing good in the Wall Street Journal. Guess we can add the point of your hubpage (and a few more things) to this list!

A Fairness Quiz for the President

By STEPHEN MOORE of the Wall Street Journal

President Obama has frequently justified his policies—and judged their outcomes—in terms of equity, justice and fairness. That raises an obvious question: How does our existing system—and his own policy record—stack up according to those criteria?

Is it fair that the richest 1% of Americans pay nearly 40% of all federal income taxes, and the richest 10% pay two-thirds of the tax?

Is it fair that the richest 10% of Americans shoulder a higher share of their country's income-tax burden than do the richest 10% in every other industrialized nation, including socialist Sweden?

Is it fair that American corporations pay the highest statutory corporate tax rate of all other industrialized nations but Japan, which cuts its rate on April 1?

Is it fair that President Obama sends his two daughters to elite private schools that are safer, better-run, and produce higher test scores than public schools in Washington, D.C.—but millions of other families across America are denied that free choice and forced to send their kids to rotten schools?

Is it fair that Americans who build a family business, hire workers, reinvest and save their money—paying a lifetime of federal, state and local taxes often climbing into the millions of dollars—must then pay an additional estate tax of 35% (and as much as 55% when the law changes next year) when they die, rather than passing that money onto their loved ones?

Is it fair that Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, former Democratic Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, former Ways and Means Chairman Charlie Rangel and other leading Democrats who preach tax fairness underpaid their own taxes?

Is it fair that after the first three years of Obamanomics, the poor are poorer, the poverty rate is rising, the middle class is losing income, and some 5.5 million fewer Americans have jobs today than in 2007?

Is it fair that roughly 88% of political contributions from supposedly impartial network television reporters, producers and other employees in 2008 went to Democrats?

Is it fair that the three counties with America's highest median family income just happen to be located in the Washington, D.C., metro area?

Is it fair that wind, solar and ethanol producers get billions of dollars of subsidies each year and pay virtually no taxes, while the oil and gas industry—which provides at least 10 times as much energy—pays tens of billions of dollars of taxes while the president complains that it is "subsidized"?

Is it fair that those who work full-time jobs (and sometimes more) to make ends meet have to pay taxes to support up to 99 weeks of unemployment benefits for those who don't work?

Is it fair that those who took out responsible mortgages and pay them each month have to see their tax dollars used to subsidize those who acted recklessly, greedily and sometimes deceitfully in taking out mortgages they now can't afford to repay?

Is it fair that thousands of workers won't have jobs because the president sided with environmentalists and blocked the shovel-ready Keystone XL oil pipeline?

Is it fair that some of Mr. Obama's largest campaign contributors received federal loan guarantees on their investments in renewable energy projects that went bust?

Is it fair that federal employees receive benefits that are nearly 50% higher than those of private-sector workers whose taxes pay their salaries, according to the Congressional Budget Office?

Is it fair that soon almost half the federal budget will take income from young working people and redistribute it to old non-working people, even though those over age 65 are already among the wealthiest Americans?

Is it fair that in 27 states workers can be compelled to join a union in order to keep their jobs?

Is it fair that nearly four out of 10 American households now pay no federal income tax at all—a number that has risen every year under Mr. Obama?

Is it fair that Boeing, a private company, was threatened by a federal agency when it sought to add jobs in a right-to-work state rather than in a forced-union state?

Is it fair that our kids and grandkids and great-grandkids—who never voted for Mr. Obama—will have to pay off the $5 trillion of debt accumulated over the past four years, without any benefits to them?

I could not agree more with the first line in bold print. This is not the first nor is it the only attack to religious freedom under this administration. Is there any Constitutional freedom they have not attacked? I don't think so! That man swore to uphold the Constitution yet he undermines it, goes around it, and generally stomps upon it at every turn. Everyone says wait until November. I don't think we can last that long.

Not only shocking but grounds for impeachment in my view. Trying to silence the chaplains reminds me of what the Nazis did. Obama wants to be the highest authority and it is clear to see that religion is an impediment to his plans. Up interesting, useful and awesome.

cjv123 profile image

cjv123 4 years ago from Michigan Author

You are 100% correct. When I read this, I wasn't kidding when I wrote I got chills - it is CHILLING and smacks of Nazism. The left used to use that on Bush all the time and I used to mock lefties for using that term 1) because it was ridiculous. Bush was SO far from Hitler. 2) I hate it when people use that term because it dilutes the gravity of that horrible nightmarish time in history. So I rarely ever use that term and NEVER lightly. But in this case - it is just like the Nazi's are taking over. It's horrifying. Thanks Pop for pointing that out!

It is my belief that Obama and his administration are testing the Constitution at every opportunity to see who or if anyone steps forward in protest. So many of our citizens wouldn't recognize the Constitution if they found it in the road thus they are not threatened in anyway. It is extremely bothersome to me that no one in our legislative or judicial branches is crying foul on this matter. If the military chaplains are mute on this point, it will be undermine the libery and freedom of us all. This man absolutely has to go in November as there is not enough of America left to withstand four more years of this tyrant. WB

You said it Wayne! If he doesn't go, as we've been saying here and others have been saying - he'll probably declare himself King and then we'll all be under King Obama. God forbid.

Thanks for adding intellect to the conversation! profile image 4 years ago from upstate, NY

Great Information, rated up and awesome! Your right, this is chilling! The president should be empeached along with about half of our elected representatives and judges! The problem is, the poeple themselves need to know what The Constitution says and have a true reverence for God. I'm afraid that "we the poeple" have put that crown on the our presidents head!

wba108 - I have said this many times before - Obama is our first "American Idol" President. Picked for his performance - but no one cared if he had any substance. I cared and didn't - would NEVER have voted for this idiot. I saw right through the media endorsed scam. I've been fooled before in my life - but on this - I knew and saw SO clearly that Obama was a corrupt shill for corrupt U.S.A. haters - and I'm going to say it - if he chooses a racist as his Attorney General - as they are "close friends" from his Chicago days - then he MUST be a racist himself. Oh woe is us! I can only pray for a miracle and the corruption will not win him this next election. Thanks for stopping by and adding your thoughts!

cjv123, what a hub of enlightenment and revelation. I do not understand why Obama has not been impeached either. Makes you wonder if the citizens of the US will be pushed so far and revolt or continue as lambs to the slaughter. Our Country is going down in unbelievable ways.

Well written and Passionate Hub!

God Bless YOU!


p.s. love the Gaither's and Michael English .. Did not know he was the new lead singer - you really are Blessed.

Obama Harvard Tapes Will Be Out ‘In A Week Or Two’

Thanks tsadjatko. I still don't know what these tapes are about. I admit - I'm still surprised that these tapes even exist as I actually doubted he was ever a student. THEN - when I actually "supposed" I firmly believe that he was a student who received foreign aid to do so. Plus - I still want to know how the heck a 15 year old who lived in Hawaii with his mother, received a Social Security card from Connecticut - a state he had never been to at the time. much corruption that the mass media didn't vet!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving the link tsadjatko!
