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.

    no surprise here..

  2. I’d like to volunteer President Obama to quit as president.
    .

  3. Liar Obama is merely redistributing our resources to the rest of the world. You’re right, gb, this is no surprise.

  4. Um, that would be bg, not gb. A dyslexic moment.

  5. Wonder who will volunteer to notify the next of kin for these volunteer fighters?

  6. All part of ceding sovereignty – a foundational stone in “transforming” and “remaking” the country.

    “Transforming” + “Remaking” = “Destroying”

  7. Perhaps his title should be changed to Subordinate-in-Chief.

    aah, someone else who shares my typing affliction!! :D

    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
    not all deaf, dumb & blind, so what does that tell US?? :-(

  10. Unconstitutional Obama strikes again.

  11. This proves that Obama doesn’t believe in capitalism. A capitalist would demand to be paid, which would make our armies mercenaries.

    Instead we are at the beck and call of the Arab League and the UN, which makes us LACKEYS!

  12. Seldom does one see a man in shoes so much larger than their feet.

    I think the Ringling Brothers organization has some.

  13. 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.

    With sorrowful, USAF vet headshaking dismay (in light of all-to-predictable lefitst/socialist admininstration behavior)

  14. I have one question, where is our Congress??????? Oh yes, I forgot, it’s vacation time for them once again, after all that “hard” work.

  15. 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.

    Now if they could just get Gates to toe the line.

  16. In other words: the kinetic experiment made Obama bloodthirsty!

  17. I hate to say I told you so but…. I just wrote an article about this http://www.redpillpatriot.com This is the beginnings of the NWO.

  18. 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.

  19. Rasmussen shows him up 4 over yesterday. I think the enemies are winning.

  20. The way I look at it, Donald Trump has this fraud by the cojones and isn’t about to let go. Zero’s days in the Oval Office are numbered.

    But in the meantime we should look for some major issue to hit the news, so the White House can bury the birth certificate issue.

    Too bad. Ain’t going to happen.
