It seems to me that the reported number of Senior Officers that have been forced to resign {' if true' }should have led to an organizational action to bring them together. I would also presume they may have been required to sign some sort of confidentiality agreement that prevents them from individually speaking out about their personal experience. Somehow the anonymity of participation in an organization should be possibly structured to protect the individual members or participants from any violation of "individual confidentiality agreements" they were required to sign to preserve their retirement benefits. Constitutional Lawyers and and any number of freedom loving organizations should be working together to research the potential membership by seeking the names of all retired Senior Officials of the last decade. It would be interesting to see the listing by years of departure from active service and statical comparisons to historical annual experiences. Once identified a recruiting effort supported by the protections determined to be provided by the collective efforts of the group with no attribution to any one member should be undertaken aggressively. Simply put the very existence of such a group with significant membership would speak volumes to the American people. Further, if actual information regarding negative actions of political interference in the military were to be reported anonymously by this entity on behalf of its members it would greatly pressure the current political appointees and congressional committees and media i.e. all influential entities controlling the military and the current Senior Officers to reform their practices. Sadly, where we are today it is almost impossible believe anything that is reported due to the biased nature of all parties involved. Remember the old saying about the "HORSES MOUTH"! Sooner later the Citizens must become confident they can believe what they are being told! That is the Difference it can make!!!!!
It becoming increasingly difficult to accept that the Supreme Court uses the Constitution when determining what they will allow or deny. The idea that they are now the basis for deciding what "should be" Constitutionally OK is a more likely fact with respect to this Court. John Roberts as Chief Judge signalled as much when he decided that what was a fine was really a tax and as such was "constitutionally OK. Since when does the Supreme Court decide what is a Tax? Where are they given the authority to revise legislation? So how can on e realistically expect a finding based on what is set forth in our Constitution. These Justices now believe only they are able to decide what is " Really" meant by the words in the Constitution. Don't expect to much.

Senator Stereotype Haunts Lousiana

Democrat control of Louisiana political offices has not been productive for the people. Some historic controversies have characterized the results many times for many years. It is time for this Senator to enter the history and leave the political stage to a more productive representative to seek a better result for Louisiana and America than her support for Obama administration's record of governmental corruption and declining private economy, employment declines, support of illegal immigration, multiple failures due to foreign policy mistakes and very damaging anti energy policies.
The more truthful assessment of the significance of this "stupid comment" is the very obvious fact that Obama's administration is almost as anti Israel and all other Middle East countries or movements that don't allow freedom of religion or political rule by their people without massive human rights violations. Soon we will most likely learn what deal they will agree to that will allow Iran to become "NUCLEAR weapons capable" so as to dominate the area: and then order a complete withdrawal from the region that will allow for the expansion of the radical Islamic Caliphate's Jihad nonsense to threaten the security of all others.

When inner city ( democrat party ruled) cities begin to produce graduates that read and think for themselves and truly intend to get jobs and raise families of healthy, intelligent and independently productive children -then and only then- will the middle class black community outnumber and out vote the leftist led democratic party, The democrats have among the many abuses of the Black Community maintain minority populated public school systems of most "Democrat Party" controlled political jurisdictions in "FAILING STUDENTS" condition. As a result, the truly supportive back parents are the most important voters who must begin the trend away from dominance by the "DEMOCRATS" as "school choice" of alternatives to the current public school "Monopoly" must be expanded dramatically to develop more better educated voters.
Sadly, some people still think Obama is just making a mistake. He is instead doing exactly what he intends. He is sending the military on a mission they can not accomplish. Everything he has initiated in his Mideastern foreign policy and the military actions and support efforts he has authorized have reduced the influence of the USA and further destabilized an already fragile region. Further, Eastern Europe, particularly Poland has also been adversely treated by Obama policy decisions: and of course the Ukraine will undoubtedly continue to be damaged by the lack of any strong support against Russia's pressure. Obama also has not acted to maintain the strong influence and protection of the USA to our Allies and has allowed violence to advance the influence of Radical Islamist Jihad around the world and the RUSSIAN AND CHINESE AND NORTH KOREAN AND IRANIAN actions that have destabilized other areas and advanced considerable anti USA activity.
He most certainly will! The main stream media propaganda machine will not allow the truth to prevail over Mr. Obama's lies or at best lets call it spin!. Sadly we have a President who is as radical as it can get with respect to telling the truth. Anything that will advance his agenda to "TRANSFORM AMERICA" is what will be said and done. The truthfulness of "THE WHAT, WHY, AND HOW" will not be important. His only concern is can it or will it work. Foreign policy and security have been dismal failures from his first day in office. Unbelievably, he has always been a radical leftist and has lied constantly since coming on to the political scene as an anti Iraq war speech maker! The media has never allowed the truth about his political ideology or his agenda or the results of his initiatives to be reported and has covered up all criticism by slanderously attacking the critics.

The Environmental Corruption Agency

Ms. Malkin is constantly pointing out the abuse of the Executive Branch Cabinet level Agency leadership and the "progressives " throughout government and the main stream media. It is shameful that complacent voting eligible complacent citizens allow this corruption of American traditional concepts of law, free enterprise economy and individual freedoms by sitting on the sidelines and do not even bother to pay any attention at all to what is happening to our political and economic reality all around them.
Obama and Holder are quite a team. But we must not notice the policy and programs and actions we are opposed to as being questionable for the Office they hold. Instead we must be cognizant that as black men they will use the race card to distract from any opposition presented and ignore it rather than acknowledge the merits of criticism or to change the course they are leading in the radical progressive "TRANSFORM AMERICA" agenda.

Lawsuits and Impeachment

I completely agree with Mr. Sowell's prediction about the likely failing outcome of either a suit or an "IMPEACHMENT" indictment from the House. However, I disagree entirely that the fact that the Courts or the Senate will ignore the merits of the charges that should most certainly be made will result in "egg on the Republican's faces". Rather, I believe very strongly that an Impeachment document which must result in a Senate trial regardless of the predictable outcome will force all Americans to pay attention to those charges. Any Republican candidate will have a formal documentation of the charges to use as a campaign issue. ALL DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES IS IN SUPPORT OF THE OBAMA DEFENSE WILL BE FORCED TO EXPLAIN AND DEFEND THEMSELVES. I AM CONFIDENT THAT IS A POSITION OF STRENGTH. I t is an unfortunate fact of political reality and life today that opposition to Obama's abuse of power will get little attention from the "Biased and "Propaganda" Like Main Stream Media. There are very few Tom Sowell like journalists or authors presenting accurate information about Obama administration policy and actions that are abusive and deserving of "IMPEACHMENT". Consequently, it is very difficult for opposition to overcome the kind of abuse demonstrated recently - in Mississippi - and by the constant and continuing Executive Branch abuse that is being allowed to go on without serious challenge. The following list is formidable and sadly not likely to be the focus of attention if not forced by an "Impeachment indictment". This list includes: Fast and furious, Contempt of Congress, AP and tv network reporter surveillance, IRS abuses of "Conservative" individuals and organizations constitutional rights, Lybian military actions and support of Egyptian and Syrian radicals without Congressional authorization, Failure to protect defend Bengazi victims and then cover up of the incident to avoid truthful cause and the consequences facts that would have politically negative impact on Obama's reelection and instead presenting deceptive misinformation and refusing to cooperate with the House investigation of the facts, and also generally refusing to cooperate in other House investigations and in other instances modifying existing laws unilaterally or using their Cabinet Department initiatives and regulations to accomplish what Obama's administration knows it can not get passed by the Legislative Branch.
