If I’m an enemy raghead, I’d find the Sweet Baby Jesus and convert before January 20, 2017.

Why?

Marines don’t negotiate.

Some quotes for reference (via the Washington Free Beacon):

  1. “I don’t lose any sleep at night over the potential for failure. I cannot even spell the word.”
  2. “The first time you blow someone away is not an insignificant event. That said, there are some assholes in the world that just need to be shot.”

  3. “I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me, I’ll kill you all.”

  4. “Find the enemy that wants to end this experiment (in American democracy) and kill every one of them until they’re so sick of the killing that they leave us and our freedoms intact.”

  5. “Marines don’t know how to spell the word defeat.”

  6. “Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.”

  7. “The most important six inches on the battlefield is between your ears.”

  8. “You are part of the world’s most feared and trusted force. Engage your brain before you engage your weapon.”

  9. “There are hunters and there are victims. By your discipline, cunning, obedience and alertness, you will decide if you are a hunter or a victim.”

  10. “No war is over until the enemy says it’s over. We may think it over, we may declare it over, but in fact, the enemy gets a vote.”

  11. “There is nothing better than getting shot at and missed. It’s really great.”

  12. “You cannot allow any of your people to avoid the brutal facts. If they start living in a dream world, it’s going to be bad.”

  13. “You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn’t wear a veil. You know, guys like that ain’t got no manhood left anyway. So it’s a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them. Actually it’s quite fun to fight them, you know. It’s a hell of a hoot. It’s fun to shoot some people. I’ll be right up there with you. I like brawling.”

  14. “I’m going to plead with you, do not cross us. Because if you do, the survivors will write about what we do here for 10,000 years.”

  15. “Demonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy’ than a U.S. Marine.”

  16. “Fight with a happy heart and strong spirit”

And for some perspective, here is the genuine man, a great American answering viewer questions via YouTube:

Yeah, it’s going to suck being a bureaucrat who says “can’t do” or a one or two star Social Justice Warrior General appointed by the current pussy-in-chief.

OOH-RAH!

    A soldier’s soldier. This is a guy who can fight and commands by example. I salute him. Put’s Petraeus to shame. He is only a powerpoint desk jockey.

    First, the Oath is to SUPPORT AND DEFEND THE US CONSTITUTION above and before orders of superiors, and the duties of the position occupied.

    Oath of Enlistment – “I, (NAME), 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.

    Officers Oath – “I, [name], 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; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

    Notice that the requirements concerning the duties to the US Constitution has the most information about what is required, that it is FIRST in its listing, and THEN comes “orders”. That is because the US Constitution and each state’s Constitution IS the USA. when it is gone, we will be no more. We will no longer own anything because we own it under OUR legitimate government and those laws. THAT is why those who serve – be it in the military, in enforcement, in EVERY part of government (high to low) are required to hold that document FIRST above anyone who serves within government, any governmental position.

    J. Reuben Clark: “God provided that in this land of liberty, our political allegiance SHALL RUN NOT TO individuals, that is, to government officials, no matter how great or how small they may be. Under His plan OUR ALLEGIANCE AND THE ONLY ALLEGIANCE WE OWE AS CITIZENS OR DENIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES, RUNS TO OUR INSPIRED CONSTITUTION which God himself set up. SO RUNS THE OATH OF OFFICE of those who participate in government. A certain loyalty we do owe to the office which a man holds, but even here we owe just by reason of our citizenship, no loyalty to the man himself. In other countries it is to the individual that allegiance runs. THIS PRINCIPLE OF ALLEGIANCE TO THE CONSTITUTION IS BASIC TO OUR FREEDOM. It is one of the great principles that distinguishes this “land of liberty” from other countries”. (caps are mine)

    See the problem with our nation yet? This man has sworn Oath’s to the US Constitution several times, yet he does not know to which he owes allegiance. I am not saying that he is a bad man, he is no worse then the others who are actively working to destroy our nation. Why do I say that? Because IF he stood for the US Constitution, IF he really stood for this nation, he would have left the military and joined his own statea Militia as an officer. THAT is what is required of us all.

    George Washington: “It may be laid down, as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every citizen who enjoys the protection of a free government…, but even of his personal services to the defence of it, and consequently that the Citizens of America (with a few legal and official exceptions) from 18 to 50 Years of Age should be borne on the Militia Rolls, provided with uniform Arms, and so far accustomed to the use of them, that the Total strength of the Country might be called forth at Short Notice on any very interesting Emergency.” (“Sentiments on a Peace Establishment”, letter to Alexander Hamilton; “The Writings of George Washington”)

    We are to NOT have a standing (permanent) military, because all able-bodied Americans and those LAWFULLY allowed to be here are constitutionally required to be trained and to bear arms. That is correct. We are the Militia, we are, all of us, are to be trained as the congress requires the military to be trained. We are to be armed with the same arms BECAUSE it is the duty if every able-bodied person to defend themselves, defend their county, defend their state, defend their nation when needed.

    Because, as Mao Tse-tung said in 1938, when by these words he inadvertently endorsed the Second Amendment: “Every Communist must grasp the truth, ‘Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.”

    That is correct, “‘Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun”. The US Constitution is a very short document that creates/ed the general (federal) government. In it, found in the First Article, Section 8, Clause 15 is the duties of the people for our government and for ourselves as it keeps us safe from “police states” and other things that come with force.

    Clause 15: “To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel invasions.“

    Each state’s Militia is made up of “We the People” protecting our own interests, homes, states, nation, and enforcing our governments. The Militia has as its constitutionally assigned duties to:
    — Enforce the US Constitution (supreme LAW of this land and the supreme contract that all who serve within our governments are under) and each state’s Constitution (highest LAW of the state and the second highest contract that those that serve within the state governments are under),
    — Enforce and keep the “Laws of the Union” (which are constitutional laws ONLY – not “color of law”),
    — Protect the country against all enemies both domestic and foreign, and
    — “to suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions”.

    Tench Coxe, Delegate to the Constitutional Convention of 1787: “Who are the militia? are they not ourselves. Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. THEIR SWORDS, AND EVERY OTHER TERRIBLE IMPLEMENT OF THE SOLDIER, ARE THE BIRTH-RIGHT OF AN AMERICAN… The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.” (caps are mine)

    Also found in Article 1 are … US Constitution, Article I, Section 8, Clause 11: “To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water”.

    By this assigning of the powers to declare war to the congress; that then forbids any other who serves within the legislative branch, those that serve within the executive branch, and within the judicial branch from declaring war and sending in our troops.

    Regarding the funding of military is found here in Clause 12: “To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years”.

    It has been a very long time since those who serve within our congress has declared war. Yet, we still have a military, and those of our families are still being sent to foreign nations to fight “wars”. They are unlawful wars.

    George Washington: “It is our true policy to steer clear of entangling alliances with any portion of the foreign world. The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is, in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible.”

    Thomas Jefferson: “I have ever deemed it fundamental for the United States never to take active part in the quarrels of Europe. Their political interests are entirely distinct from ours. Their mutual jealousies, their balance of power, their complicated alliances, their forms and principles of government, are all foreign to us. They are nations of eternal war.”

    John Quincy Adams: “America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She well knows that by enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy and ambition, which assume
    the colors and usurp the standards of freedom.”

    Basically, if he stood for the USA, and if he was keeping his Oath as is required of him, he would be leading his state’s Militia, he would have, would read the US Constitution as he is under contract to that document and Oath bound to it. So he is the same as all the others who came before him. As long as he is enriched by keeping the military going, he will NEVER be an American who stands for our nation. What he should be is training the people to be what they are REQUIRED to do and to be as citizens of this nation. Every thing he does assists in the destruction of our lives, our nation, our legitimate government.

    James Madison: “The power to declare war, including the power of judging the causes of war, is fully and exclusively vested in the legislature … the executive has no right, in any case, to decide the question, whether there is or is not cause for declaring war.”

    George Washington: “The constitution vests the power of declaring war in Congress; therefore no offensive expedition of importance can be undertaken until after they shall have deliberated upon the subject and
    authorized such a measure.”

    James Madison: “In time of actual war, great discretionary powers are constantly given to the Executive Magistrate. Constant apprehension of War, has the same tendency to render the head too large for the body. A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty.
    The means of defence against foreign danger, have been always the instruments of tyranny at home. Among the Romans it was a standing maxim to excite a war, whenever a revolt was apprehended. Throughout all Europe, the armies kept up under the pretext of defending, have enslaved the people.”

    James Madison: “Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. ”

    Michael LeMieux: “The Constitution has very little to do with the American citizen. It was written to establish a Federal Government and to place the boundaries by which that government would operate. The constitution was never designed to provide or enumerate the rights of the citizens but to restrain the federal government from meddling in state and ultimately citizen affairs.”

    @ Gassius Maximus; I am not so sure about that. At least Petraeus had the balls to openly declare his treason against the USA, against the US Constitution on the Senate Floor at a hearing. (along with Dempsey) They openly support the destruction of our way of life.

    IF this guy was a Militia leader, and training and overseeing those who serve within our nation…, but he isn’t. BTW, from your comment you, though bound by Oath to the US Constitution with your life, yet have not read it either.

    See the problem? You do not even know who you are defending, you are “just following orders” and “just doing your job” – that is what happened in Nazi Germany, Stalin/Lenin’s Russia, Mao’s China, etc, etc, etc. Here there is NO EXCUSE. It is a short document and available for all to read.
