Americans At Risk: Obama Is Destroying America’s Ability to Win World War III

CSS Offical-New-Logo2


In our post-Vietnam era, America vowed to never under appreciate the sacrifices that the men and women in uniform make whose service keeps us safe. However, the nation’s undying gratitude seems to be evaporating. Since Obama has become the President, the military has suffered through several years of  staggering cuts in funding and tens of thousands of military personnel have been shown the door.  Many of these cuts are being visited upon military personnel who were near retirement.  After 13 years of being embroiled in war, many soldiers feel that that military has been set adrift and lost all direction and purpose. Upon further examination, it is clear that Obama’s mission with regard to our military is to dismantle and destroy its fighting effectiveness, bit by bit.

Low Morale: Overworked, Underpaid and Undervalued

The Military Times recently ran a survey of active-duty troops who have subsequently reported a stunning decline in how soldiers rated their overall quality of life. Prior to Obama, 91% of the troops reported their quality of life to be good or excellent. In the most recent survey, only 56% still refer to their military lives good or excellent.

According to the survey, before Obama became President, 85% of the troops would recommend a military career to others. Today, that number has dropped to 73%.  Re-enlistment rates have declined by 9% (72% to 63%), despite the horrendous domestic job market.



U.S. marine, Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi. Tahmooressi was imprisoned by Mexican authorities in March of 2014 after accidentally straying into Mexican territory while driving along a poorly lit section of the border and was found to be in possession of firearms, illegal under Mexican law, but was permitted under United States law. Obama allowed Sgt. Tahmooressi to rot in a Mexican prison for over 6 months without mounting a serious effort to seek his return. This has a deleterious impact on morale due to a President who would leave him behind. Is this case a deliberate attack upon the morale of American soldiers by this President?


Obama Is Compromising the Most Important Weapons System In the Navy


Under the direction of the Pentagon, via Obama, the U.S. Navy’s shipbuilding plan would see its attack submarine fleet diminish from 55 to 41 boats over the next 15 years. Meanwhile, Russia and China are increasing the size of their nuclear submarine fleet. The American attack submarines are the great equalizer with regard to the comparative inferior size of the American military. Obama is taking away one of the cornerstones of the American military defense strategy.  As The Weekly Standard so adeptly said that “this is a disaster in the making”.



Obama Is Significantly Weakening the Reach and Power of the Military


The Obama administration announced that they were seeking to reduce the size of the U.S. military to 490,000  (pre-WW II levels), then the number was to be reduced to 450,000. Presently, the Obama administration seeks to drop the number to 420,000 troops.

The chief of staff of the Army, General Ray Odierno, with regard to Obama’s cut in American troops, “The world is changing in front of us. We have seen Russian aggression in Europe, we have seen ISIS, we have seen increased stability in other places.”



When you have a President who has more than doubled the budget deficit, one has to wonder why this President is so hell-bent on weakening the military?

While I flippantly ask why doesn’t Obama simply scrap the infantry and bring back Larry Storch and F-Troop, Let’s consider that this is pure military suicide given the present state of affairs.


“The Capitalists Will Sell Us the Last Rope That We Will Hang the Last Capitalist With”

Speaking of military suicide, does Obama hold dear his fiduciary duty to protect the people of the United States, or is he solely beholding to corporate interests? Due to the escalating tensions with Russia over the CIA’s meddling and aggression in Ukraine, Obama’s actions have generated some very serious national security  concerns inside the military. This is due to the fact that the U.S. military’s largest satellite program is completely dependent upon a rocket engine produced by Russia. In a Cold War setting, which could go hot at any moment, what kind of President would not have looked for technological alternatives to the 180 rocket engines for its Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle program.

In war, the U.S. military is totally dependent upon satellite surveillance for success on the battlefield. Without this component of warfare, the U.S. military would be overwhelmed by the numerically superior forces of China and Russia. Is this a case of stupidity or treason on Obama’s part?


Dismantling the Leadership of the American Military

Since assuming the Presidency, Obama has fired approximately 260 senior command officers. Since a near state of war exists between the U.S. and Russia/China, it is an outrageous act of incredible stupidity to dismantle the leadership of your fighting force which could be thrown into World War III in a moment’s notice! Again, I ask, is this stupidity or treason?
With regard to the mass military firings of senior command military officers, retired Army Major General Paul Vallely stated that “The White House protects their own. That’s why they stalled on the investigation into fast and furious, Benghazi and Obamacare. He’s intentionally weakening and gutting our military, Pentagon and reducing us as a superpower, and anyone in the ranks who disagrees or speaks out is being purged.”

General Carter Ham

The current President not only leaves young marines behind to rot in a Mexican jail, he prevents the military from rescuing an American ambassador!

Here are two examples of Obama’s handiwork when it comes to firing senior command officers. While Ambassador Stevens compound was under attack, on September 11, 2012, General Carter Ham, commander of AFRICOM and Admiral Gaouette attempted a rescue of the ambassador in violation of Presidential orders. Both men were summarily fired for attempting the rescue on trumped up charges.



Rear Admiral Charles Gaouette

Gaouette was in charge of Air Craft Carriers in the Mediterranean Sea the night of Stevens death and he subsequently testified to Congress that he could have rescued Stevens.  The admiral was accused of using profanity in a public setting and was forced to resign his commission.

What kind of President blocks an attempted rescue of an American ambassador who is under attack by so-called terrorists?



Obama has further weakened the backbone of entire national defense system, our nuclear weapons program leadership. This is reckless, unneeded and unprecedented.

The Burden of Empire

We have apparently learned nothing about the demise of Britain and Rome. The American military is everywhere, but can defend nothing against a serious foe. the U.S. military is overstretched as it is in  it covers more ground, tackles more issues and is involved (actively or passively) in more combat areas than at any point since the Cold War.

“In 2013, Africa Command carried out 546 military activities in Africa, an increase of over 200% since the command was established in 2008. The U.S. military is now involved in more than 90% of Africa’s 54 nations”.

The U.S. military has bases in 64 countries. We are defending more with far less.



This is a story which writes its own conclusion. This is an epitaph to the once mighty American military. We, the rank and file Americans, may not like the insidious manner in which we have carried out our foreign policy with the needless murder of millions around the world. This is true, however, a weakened American military puts all Americans at risk. It is difficult to believe that this is not the deliberate agenda of President Obama.

    It is so amazing that this topic can be discussed in public, and the public will carry on without notice. It is almost like Satan is able to keep a lid on the truth. I am depending one hundred percent on my Lord to pop the lid. When the light of truth rushes in, error will be purged out in a mighty blast. However, I do not believe that it will be a neat and tidy process. It does seem as though it will be a surprise and sudden. As was expressed yesterday, the citizens of the world will be the new owners of world wide truth on every subject. We will be delivered from evil.
    Evil will end up being on the receiving end of oppression. While the righteous shall shine. Our faith is counted unto us for righteousness. Believe it or not. But this is where we get our standing; our invitation to……. “let us reason together.”

    The American military is really the Banksters military and everyone knows big ships are sitting ducks anymore. I think it is naive to think that America’s military works for Americans any more. They work for the same masters as does other countries so called leaders. We are all being played and conned so the public will support more spending for war relics. My guess and it has been reported by VT that the elite posses weapons and technology way ahead of what the public knows and it is also my guess the good guy bad guy bs is all for public consumption. They manufacture bad guys and false flags to keep us scared and them in power. Don’t be conned.

    At this point Dave, I’m almost all out of sympathy. I say almost because I do understand the assault that has been launched against the minds of men. Must read Mike Adams article from this morning. http://www.naturalnews.com/048347_aerosolized_vaccines_behavioral_modification_obedience.html
    It should be obvious that America is being dismantled by a seriously evil cabal. How is it people like Reid, Pelosi, Obama, Boehner, McConnell, Feinstein etc get elected over and over and over.
    Over the months Dave, you have outlined in a fairly clear way what is happening in this world and where it is likely to lead. In my opinion, no more needs to be said on that. Perhaps our focus now should be on strategies to follow to mitigate and possibly survive what is coming?
    I’ve been sighing a lot this morning!!

    Isoroku Yamamoto

    “The fiercest serpent may be overcome by a swarm of ants. ”

    “You cannot invade the United States mainland, there will be a rifel behind every blade of grass”.

    Even while this Japanes General was kicking our as_es all over the Pacific he knew his victories were just battles and in no way meant they were going to win.

    History repeats itself. The modern liberals goal is to decrease the military in preparation for socialism or communism. If it wasn’t for our nuclear arsenal we would be communist right now. Jimmy Carter dismantled our military the Russians and the Chinese would have had a field day.

    Look at the arsenal the american people have. Wisconsin alone has 500,000 hunters. Pennsylvania had another 750,000 hunters. Million man army? We got more than that. Piss off the people that possess 320 million firearms and your in trouble. Yeah there are a lot of sheeple. That first slap in the face or kick in the groin and that person is awake and looking for someone to blame.

    Bad times ahead, most definitely. For it is written and it shall be done.

    And where are the 316,000,000 plus people in all this?

    “So will I choose their delusions, And bring their fears on them; Because, when I called, no one answered, When I spoke they did not hear; But they did evil before My eyes, And chose that in which I do not delight.”


    “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”


    “For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more. ”

    Remember where we were? Here we are. Imagine where we will be.

    I disagree with you Dave… who is the real enemy of america? Obama or the 50% of the american public that currently approve of him? A godless, irreligious society is going to get godless, irreligious leaders… there is no getting around that. Obama is a reflection of the self destructive path the american people have embarked on.

    It’s not right that those of us who care and are awake should have to suffer for the mistakes of others… that is why I like that bible text that talks about God someday creating a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.

    I keep remembering the statement made by Khrushchev to Western ambassadors: “We will bury you!” (meaning the capitalist Western nations). I guess this is what he meant. We have seen a Marxist/communist infiltrate into the top level of our country, who has now destroyed our economic and military capability of resisting an attack of either kind by Eastern forces.

  11. BLACKBELT January 20, 2015 at 11:37 am

    Dear Dave;

    You have a good grip on what’s going on. Please allow me to help your understanding-Obama is the Anti-Christ. If you can get your head around this one fact-a lot of what is happening will make better sense.

    Pastor Saeed Abedini is rotting in an Iranian prison. Where is Obama? In Hawaii.

    At a certain point, systematic dismantling cannot be considered incompetence but malicious intent…
    It’s also a pattern with the promotion of globalization as well:
    1). Globalization is anti-protectionist on its surface and a technological and development transfer underneath.
    2). US foreign policy is presently operated to diminish world opinion towards the US. Russo-Sino are utilize that to attack the world’s reserve currency status.
    3). The World’s reserve currency status is the government’s ability to export inflation created by artificial demand for US Dollars. This also allows the central bank to pursue its inflation rate mandate in addition to replacing the cash collected by taxes from the Bismarkian Policies that accounts for a good size of the US debt and replaced by US Treasury bonds that must be sold or monetized to recreate the cash seized and spent elsewhere.
    4). In extension of the diminishing public opinion of the US and US populace in the Obama V Putin theater, the Militarization of US Law enforcement utilized to justify ‘security’ over rights… Since this largely seemed to went under the radar:
    Integrated authority possessing military grade equipment and munitions are generically defined as military units in international law. Military assets cannot seize civilian infrastructure without a specific strategic or tactical advantage. Further more, the Nurumberg Trials and Geneva Convention state on the topic of military assets killing civilians? The plot thickens as after the failure to indict Officer Wilson the Brown’s stepfather and mother went before the UN’s Human Rights Council in New York to plea their case surrounding the US’s institutional racism.
    Does anyone else see yet another mechanism for martial law being established, or is it just me?

    The ONLY people that “win” in a World War are the ZIonist Bankers.

    War is a business, and business, in that field, is extraordinarily profitable right now, regardless of the outcome..

    Screw the once “mighty” American military industrial complex, who works exclusively for the ZIonist bankers, and always has. May it meet the same fate that it has left the millions dead, in its wake.

    And screw anybody that deems Zionists as anything other than the evil, satanic rulers of the world.

    And, a “weakened” American military is a reflection of the quality of the collective that it represents.

  15. Arizona January 20, 2015 at 12:35 pm

    I had a MERK,in arizona tell me his bosses alerted all their men,oboozo planned to abondon all US military overseas to the enemy,and to get their transportation HOME in order,or they would be left there too………

    Moreover, the vast majority of Americans have become weak and complacent. Strung out on obesity, gmo junk food, Rx and NonRx drugs, texting, iphones, etc., etc., etc., ad nauseam, is it any wonder for those that are somewhat awake to see that Obama isn’t destroying AMerica, ITS THE DUMBED DOWN, MALLEABLE MUSHED MINDS OF THE MAJORITY OF THE MASSES who could care less about politics, and more about their next purchase of mind altering substances/toys, while up to their bloodshot eyeballs in debt, to raise a texting finger against the Imposter in the White House.

    Regardless, nobody is willing to do ANYTHING about this dire situation we find ourselves in. A few talk the talk but that’s where it ends. Seemingly safe, in the confines of one’s security blanket (home), we stare passively into our computer screens, munching on our addictions, and pretend we are concerned. Bullsheet.

    If it came down to only two leaders, Obama or Putin, to lead this country out of it’s morose, dis-eased state, is there any question who has the qualifications and who does not?

  17. Dolph January 20, 2015 at 1:04 pm

    Dave, what card does Putin play next? Sounds like our ISIS is taken over mucho Iraqi real estate? Is there going to be a new line drawn in the sand?

  18. Telnic January 20, 2015 at 6:50 pm

    Why would the Globalist want a strong US? It would be a threat to them. Seems logical. You have to see the plan from the Globalist eyes to understand why they are doing what they are doing.

    “U.S. marine, Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi was imprisoned by Mexican authorities in March of 2014 after accidentally straying into Mexican territory.”
    Tahmooressi is one lone example of how this country acts on US service personal imprisoned in foreign counties.
    Scores, no one knows how many, of US military personal who were captured by Uncle Joe and the Soviets right after the end of WW2, and were left to rot by the good old USA in the Soviet Gulag.
    At the end of the Korean “conflict” hundreds of captured US military were left to the tender mercies of the North Koreans and Red Chinese some even making to the USSR where they were ignored and left to rot by Congress and the rest of the criminals in Washington DC.
    Of course there was Vietnam in which many believed were never released with arch criminal John McCain as the cover up artist.

    Which brings us to the President and the sorry state of the US military. Always fighting the last war, the Pentagon has spent untold trillions on more or less useless military equipment.

    1. While the US was busy spending billions on aircraft carriers the USSR and now Russia is spending millions on super fast rockets, such as the S-400 and S-500 in which the US has no meaningful defense.

    2. The latest Russian jet fighter will fly circles around the trillion dollar US Air Force F35 that many have called a lemon.

    3. There’s a report that a Chinese sub surfaced next to a US navel ship undetected.

    4. The Russian’s can and did knock out the electronics of a US Navel ship in the Black Sea.

    Good morning Dave,

    Answer to your editor note below. No doubt there are a few White Hats left in the system that had to go for the Cabal to have total control. In fact if the firing of 260+ military leaders supports supports my theory and comment below.

    The American military is really the Banksters military and everyone knows big ships are sitting ducks anymore. I think it is naive to think that America’s military works for Americans any more. They work for the same masters as does other countries so called leaders. We are all being played and conned so the public will support more spending for war relics. My guess and it has been reported by VT that the elite posses weapons and technology way ahead of what the public knows and it is also my guess the good guy bad guy bs is all for public consumption.

    I was very opposed to the Iraq War. In general I am not for War. I am not stupid though either. I think the liberal media denigrates strong males figures and the conservative neo types push for war at every opportunity. The people who profit are never seen and don’t have any care.
    That said, USA is already fallen. Why do you think he met at Annenberg Estaste the one that is controlled?
    Further Putin yes is gambiting as they all are.
    I apologize but many times I wonder that it is will of God that slaughter of Ameicans should happen. I mean look how it is already, the way they just toss the people to live on scraps. Not even in old Soviet did vets have it that way.
    I think also that Churches have for th emost part except a few(very few) abandoned moral authority and direction. That is obvious no?
    I feel that it is confusing for many as there are very good, strong, and moral men in police and also armed forces but they are led by truly despicable men and woman.
    Yes, what they say it true. I told this guy in my apartment building that USA is already been decieved and sold to hisghest bidder.
    He has a Obama poster in his house. Not the only one.
    We can only rely on God. And seek his will.
    Obama is not all bad. He would be better if the DC and people were better. The people get the leaders they deserve.
    Prepare for descent.
