Globalist Obama Now Allowing US Military to be “Volunteered By Others” For International Work

This ought to make the hair stand up on the back of your neck…
Barack Obama is now allowing the US military to be “voluteered by others” to do dangerous service work for the international community.

It’s not clear where in the US Constitution he found this.
Ed Driscoll posted this from an Obama interview in El Salvador:

And that’s why building this international coalition has been so important because it means that the United States is not bearing all the cost. It means that we have confidence that we are not going in alone, and it is our military that is being volunteered by others to carry out missions that are important not only to us, but are important internationally. And we will accomplish that in a relatively short period of time.

Ace added this on today’s stunning admission by our new age Commander in Chief:

Obama seems to be such a believer in the extra-constitutional, or, more accurately, anti-constitutional view that it is the “international community,” whatever that is, that confers constitutional legality in matters of war rather than the body of Americans actually granted such power in the great national charter that he feels no need to pay even token, false lip service to the contrary position.

If Obama merely meant “We seek no empire, and come to this fight reluctantly, only at the request of foreign allies,” well, he could have said that.

Implicit in the words this rara avis literary genius actually chose is the idea that foreign citizens have a more important role in determining America’s status of “at peace” or “at war” than American citizens.

“Just words”? Obama himself gave many speeches, written for him by David Axelrod and previously used by Axelrod-client and Obama proof-of-concept prototype Devall Patrick, that words are not “just words” but full of crucial meaning.

    what is somewhat surprising is how no one in any position of power is doing
    anything to stop Obama’s the “transitioner” agenda, but then again, they’re

    When drafted in the last “lucky” batch during the Vietnam war, I can’t remember that salient nuance being part of the pledge we took when we recited our oaths of service.

    Must’ve somehow dozed off while standing up when those words were read.

    Odd that such a keystone, critical core mission of our armed services somehow got overlooked in all of my military schooling. Even with advanced security clearances, I guess that was in some Black compartment I hadn’t been briefed into. Need to know, I suppose.

    It’s good it’s finally coming to light, however. Makes a feller proud, it does, yessiree, tyo know we’re “playing well with others.”

    Sooo…..I guess we really ARE the world’s policeman, then, just waiting for their hysterical 911 calls to leap into action? Verrrrry innnnteresting….

    What a useless empty suit of a POTUS.

    Apparently the White House has solved its ‘messaging’ problem. Hillary and Obama are in lock-step.

    Mrs. Clinton also indicated that the Libyan intervention was backed by several international bodies, while no such international support exists for U.S.-led action in Syria.

    “If there were a coalition of the international community, if there were the passage of a Security Council resolution, if there were a call by the Arab League, if there was a condemnation that was universal,” Mrs. Clinton said in response to a question, asking whether the United States would intervene in Syria.

    This forces the US military to become mercenaries. The Hussein regime is destroying our fighting forces: Destruction of DADT, preventing absentee ballots, “social justice” issues pushed on the front lines, denial of pay raises, enforced incorrect usage of “Miranda” rights, enforced restraint, etc., etc., and now turning our soldiers into mercenaries.

    We cannot – and I mean CANNOT – wait for 2012. We play by the rules, while they do not. This must stop.

    What should have been your first clue that Obama was not going to side with those who truely wanted liberty and freedom, constitutional republic style? Honduras. Who did Obama side with? Chavez and Castro, and that nitwit from Brazil. But then tiny Honduras told Obama to stuff his foreign “aid” and did what they had to in order to protect their own liberties.

    Then, when given a chance to side with the young of Iran who were being shot in the streets of Tehran while they protested, our Pinocchio In Chief ignored them.

    We have allowed the ousting of Mubarak, who, while a dictator, was the evil we knew. Now, the Muslim Brotherhood, due to the Egyptian elections of 8 days ago, are poised to take over the Egyptian government. Why? Because the Muslim Brotherhood, which we were told were not playing a big part in the Egyptian rebellion, now seems to be the sole totally organized political group in Egypt. Gee, I wish I could organize a TEA Party as fast as the MB organized in Egypt (snark intended).

    Now it is being reported that the Administration KNEW that the rebels in Libya were basically Al Qaeda. But hey, don’t worry. Obama will read from his telepromter tonight that we are in total control of the situation. We are simply going to protect from Qdaffy, AND ARM, those that will come back later to try to kill us. Maybe Obama will luck out and the blood letting won’t start until he is no longer president. Again, the “blame someone else” excuse will work for him as he fattens his bank account with more book writing (I am sure the ghost writer is already lined up) and shady deals with nefarious groups.

    Obama said in his book that he would side with Islam. He also said he wanted to transform this nation. When are people going to start taking him at his word?

    I expect “the man of lawlessness” to act unconstitutionally, but the Congress is now equally to blame for not calling holding him accountable. There is no balance of power. The Congress has officially become ceremonial. The Constitution is dead. We are being dominated by globalist forces who have usurped our laws and spit on our national sovereignty. Is it yet time?

    I told my husband if the military starts calling my home to try to recruit our son, I will kindly tell them, he won’t enlist to fight for an impostor or a military hierarchy who would allow an impostor to lead them. I would also tell them he isn’t gay. That’s a requirement now isn’t it?

    Volunteered. That’s a helluva word to call it.

    Are the American people all alone now? Is there no one to look out for us? Where are the five star generals that will take this to the mat? Are there crickets in the halls of Congress?

    If I am to defend my way of life by by myself, so be it. I would rather die on my feet as a free man than bow and lick the feet of the likes of Obama in chains.

  • Joanne

    How many people are in the U.S. military and as a group they can’t call Bullsh*t on Obama? Maybe it is time for those men and women to make a stand.

    http://www.history.army.mil/html/faq/oaths.html

    “I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) 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; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”

    Obama is not eligible to hold Office, therefore, they are suppose to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. It is time they honoured their oath.

  • JPeden

    It appears the same Wonder Child who closed Gitmo just done got voluntarily rolled onto the fly paper by his very own Big Brother Ruskies – in a mere 31 days!

    After hearing on Fox Business News that the reason why the Russians are now making noises about our kinetic support of the Libyan rebels is that Russia had threatened to veto a stronger U.N. Resolution, it finally dawned upon me that this is one good reason why Obama can’t even state that his goal is to get rid of Kadaffy, because that is what his international bretheren would have vetoed if part of the res. 1973 Mission. Therefore, Obama also probably cannot use simple “no more Kadaffy regime change” as a possibly valid end point by which to sneak his way out of the Mission: he is forced to stick only with ~”helping and preventing the slaughter of civilians” as his oso ‘focused’ escape route, which means he is probably stuck in Libya for the foreseeable future, pending any application of the Constitution War Powers Act. Oh-oh, I sure hope the Proggs don’t realize this might-could be seen as involvement in a mainly Tribally based Civil War…

    … defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC.

    Such an action by Obama would mean that soldiers, sailors and marines have to violate their oath. I don’t see them doing that. I just don’t. Cause I can’t. I’ve worked with marines and soldiers and, from that experience, I just don’t see them follow Obama in tihs.

    Trusting Obama to defend the Constitution is like:

    A. Asking Michael Vick to be your puppy-sitter.

    C. Expecting Barney Frank to hit on Ann Coulter.
    D. Hoping to bump into “Snooki” at a Mensa meeting.

    bg; as Gates stated..

    “We haven’t done something like this, kind of on the fly before. So it’s
    not surprising to me that it would take a few days to get it sorted out.”

    Obama’s done the whole thing “on the fly”, and always from way behind the curve, revealing that the contingencies involved here in North Africa and the Mideast, which should have already been analyzed, either were not, or much more likely, that Obama’s latte’ Commies don’t even want to hear about them, and probably don’t want to even think that anyone else in the DOD, CIA, or State Dept. has done what should have been and is their job. Gates is just barely hanging in there amongst these narcissistic latte’ controllists, while Hillary is probably just doing what’s best for her, as usual, probably with what she thinks is a sufficient degree of separation from the acts of Obama and his his inner circle.

    What I’m saying is that the latte’ Commies, by their obsession with “centralizing” all thought and decisions, have mostly isolated themselves from the usual inputs an Administration would almost always seek when confronting the many things an Administration will have to deal with, because they both fear and reflexively disdain the strength of other, non-latte’ Commie, inputs and people.

    Very simply, Obama’s latte’ Commies fear other thought, which includes all individual free thought – such as Joe The Plumber’s, Sarah Palin’s, etc. – which they also reveal by not liking or even understanding the U.S. Constitution which protects and is based upon individual free-thought and action itself.

    They actually don’t even have a free-thought capacity which relates to Reality, except for, of course, the kind which involves, “If I say or do this, I can get that” – at least according to their largely outdated Fantasyland Propaganda Playbook, which still does work at the level of Community Organizing within the cozy protection of America’s Free System, but not very well at all on a National or International level where it is fully exposed to the otherwise forbidden thought.

    This partly but also sufficiently, imo, explains why they don’t seem to ever have a plan – except when it comes to the usual Commie m.o., now involving the looting and bullying of America and their attempt to destroy it – and why they keep incompetent people around like Clapper, Holder, and Lisa Jackson, that is, because they are basically impotent non-threatening lackies.

    What these latte’ Commies display is extreme bigotry – even a kind of “racism” – against the individual rational free-thought capacity itself, including “commonsense”. They don’t really know what it is, but they know to fear it as an existential threat, because they are essentially the kind of dead end Parasites who are so stupid as to destroy their own hosts by sucking them dry – just as Communism has always done while, of course, projectionally attributing these motives and acts to everyone else, and now especially to the epitome of an exceptionally successful free system, America’s.

    I said it before and I will say it again, I think Obama is a terrorist that made it to the highest appoinment in our land. It seems impossible, maybe even paranoid to think this but I am not afraid to openly state what I have been thinking since Obama appeared on the campaign trail. The longer we allow Obama to act on his own secret agenda the closer he is getting to his apparent goal – ruin our United States of America from the inside. Obama must be impeached. Obama does not love this country, in fact I think he hates it.
