————————

That is the opinion of this gentleman from the intelligence community. And knowing how Obama and his minions hate the US military, it would not surprise me in the least.

CALLER: Good. I just wanted to call and kind of give a little more insight on this SEAL team situation. I was in the teams for 20 years. I have multiple-decade military service and came in not long after Vietnam. I also worked for Blackwater for a few years in Iraq and know one of the guys that was killed at Fallujah quite well. But, anyway, the point I’m going to get at here is that I think there’s quite a bit of evidence that this is kind of a backwash from the situation of a couple months ago when the SEAL operators rescued Captain Phillips off the coast of Somalia. You may recall that situation.

RUSH: Yes, I do.

CALLER: Well, the truth behind that situation is that the SEAL operators were kept off the scene for well over 36 hours. There was a lot of foot dragging by the commander-in-chief’s people in letting them in the theater. After they were in theater and in place they were given a very restrictive ROE: Rules Of Engagement. The ROE was so restrictive that really they couldn’t engage their targets. There were two previous opportunities to rescue Captain Phillips, and they were not allowed to take those opportunities.

RUSH: Let me stop you here because people may not know. We’re talking Somali pirates. We’re talking about the Maersk cargo ship that a bunch of Somali pirates, teenagers, took over. One of them eventually died, and the media credited Obama — honest to God, folks, the media credited Obama — with giving the order to pull the trigger. Now you may resume the story, sir.

CALLER: Okay. When they finally did engage the hostiles, they did it liberally interpreting the ROE, and the on-site commander finally was kind of fed up with the situation and gave them a weapons-free command and they were able to engage and rescue Captain Phillips. The fallout from that was immediate and rather violent in its anger. The White House people — I don’t know the president himself, I just know their representatives with the chain of command — were absolutely livid with this and they did not want the rescue to be conducted in the way that it was. You know, I cannot prove this because I would have to give names and I’m not giving names for obvious reasons. But the bottom line is that on very good, solid inside information, the national command authority past the Pentagon was not happy.

RUSH: So let me cut to the chase here. So what I think I hear you saying is the blowback that you mentioned is, this is payback for the SEALs violating the ROE on this captain of the Maersk; and this is the chain of command reasserting itself, letting everybody know who’s boss and what’s going to happen to you if you don’t follow orders?

CALLER: That is my rather experienced opinion — and, frankly, the opinion of others. I am very close to the special operations community here in North Carolina, and, you know, that opinion is surfacing. These people are very vindictive — and you have to understand, Mr. Limbaugh, you’re very pro-military, and you always say wonderful things about our people in service, and we greatly appreciate it. But I do have to say this, and I’d like to make this one point. I’ve had two sons, by the way. My two eldest sons have done multiple tours in Afghanistan and Iraq. The military of today is not the military that fought World War II. It is not even the military that fought the first Gulf War. It is a military that has been thoroughly politicized. It is a military that is suffering the fallout of Patricia Schroeder’s ridiculous, politically correct policies that still have great power and sway in the military. And I’m just going to have to tell you: I do not mean to impugn the junior personnel in the military, the line troops, the junior officers. I’m not talking about these people. These people are doing a fine job. They’re outstanding people. But the senior ranking, the civilian and senior ranking military personnel are thoroughly indoctrinated and on board with this politically correct agenda that’s in the military.

RUSH: Yeah. I’ll tell you the most recent example of it. A glaring example was General Casey, more concerned about the “diversity” in his Army than the loss of life at Fort Hood.

CALLER: General Casey, sir, and Wesley Clark are not the exceptions in the upper echelons. They are the rule. Those are the kinds of men that are running the show and they will throw the junior personnel under the bus to save themselves every time. And that is my opinion. Again, I don’t mean to impugn any of the junior people.

RUSH: We know what you mean. We know exactly what you mean.

CALLER: Okay.

RUSH: Everything’s been politically correctized — chickified, if you will. That’s one of the things I call it. Can you hold on for a break?

CALLER: Certainly.

RUSH: I want you to explain to people what you meant. I think I know what you meant by the Patsy Schroeder stuff, Tailhook and all that, but I want you to explain exactly what you mean by that ’cause I’m sure you’ve got a lot of people curious.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: We rejoin our call with Greg from parts unknown in North Carolina, a former member of the Navy SEAL team who has two sons who served two tours each in Iraq and Afghanistan. What was it that Pat Schroeder did when she was a member of Congress from Colorado?

CALLER: I guess the question would be: What didn’t she do? She was very influential in passing legislation and putting pressure on the military to basically and fundamentally feminize the military. I can speak most clearly about the Navy, ’cause that was my experience at the time, especially when Admiral Kelso — who was the CNO at the time — kind of completely caved in after Tailhook and started instituting things like putting females on man-o-war, having the mixed training companies in boot camp and the like. And what Patricia Schroeder did was, with a really rather small cabal of very ambitious military officers — who, by the way, violated military rules and regulations by petitioning in uniform on Capitol Hill for these changes, but nobody seemed to notice that — were able to pass a lot of regulations through the Navy and the other branches that have, frankly, incorporated women into areas of the military where, being old-fashioned, I do not believe that they belong. And this has caused numerous problems throughout the military. Beyond that, I’m not exactly sure what else you would like me to add.

RUSH: No, I thought that’s what you were talking about but I wanted people to hear you say it. Pat Schroeder was very liberal, huge feminist, and I wanted you to say the feminization. My word for it is chickification. But it’s happening throughout our culture. It’s happening throughout the media as well. And it’s turning people soft and touchy-feely and so forth. And I know what you mean: There’s no room for that on the battlefield.

CALLER: There is none. And I’m very concerned about the future of our nation’s military. Again I do not mean to minimize the dangers that our military personnel are facing in this war. However, it isn’t a full-scale, knock-down-drag-out between conventional fighting forces. I am concerned that if we ever do engage in that sort of warfare again — and I think it’s ultimately inevitable, I’m afraid — that our military is not in the place where it needs to be.

Yes, Unlike Obama, Sarah Palin Has Actual Accomplishments in Her Career

Not that anyone would know that, considering the only thing about which the mass media seems concerned with regards to Sarah Palin is SNL-type reporting or National Enquirer-type reporting. Commenter Dan here, though, reminds us that Sarah Palin actually does have quite a good history of impressive political accomplishments:

I often marvel at how people IGNORE all of Sarah Palin’s accomplishments. They act like she has none and is popular for no particular reason other then people identify with her. Please share these FACTS.

1. Sarah took on corruption in her own party and risked her career in politics doing it. Name one politician who has done this that is currently serving. By the way, has Obama asked Charlie Rangel to step aside? NO, they are in the same party after all.

2. Sarah cut the budget in the Alaska which is unheard of. She saved money when the oil money was flowing in so now when the oil price dropped they are not cutting police or education or raising taxes to balance the budget. How are New York and California doing by the way on their budgets? How is Obama doing with his deficit projections? 9 trillion right?

3. Sarah TOOK ON THE MOST POWERFUL COMPANIES IN THE WORLD, the big oil companies to make sure Alaskans were getting a fair shake and SHE WON. Has Obama bucked the big labor unions in a similar fashion? Or the trial lawyers?

4. Sarah negotiated a natural gas pipeline deal that will result in the largest construction project in North America which will produce REAL JOBS and will provide CLEAN energy to the lower 48. Has Obama ever… oh never mind, its obvious he has not done anything like this and neither has anyone else who currently serves.

These are major accompishments and cannot be denied. Now, if you question whether the electorate knows about these things and therefore would not vote for her because they did not know them, I grant you that, but that is what a book tour, interviews, and a CAMPAIGN is for.

I stand with her. …

Posted by: Dan at November 25, 2009 08:41 PM

As do I. And the more Americans find out about her, I believe they will too.

UPDATE 12/03/2009: I decided to look at the referrers for this post and I came across this one. In the comments, people are all up in arms about me claiming that Obama has no accomplishments — (and no, despite what one of the idiot commenters states, winning a Presidential election is not an “accomplishment”. It’s akin to saying that I accomplish something by succeeding in a job interview and getting a job. Obama passed a job interview. Big deal. That is not an accomplishment. What one does on the job is an accomplishment.) — and many were copy/pasting the below list of “accomplishments” for Obama. Upon doing a Google Search, it seems this has been spammed all over the internet on various comment sections… never with any attribution, never with any citations to verify anything. So, in the interest of fairness, I decided to look into this shining example of Barack Obama’s grand political accomplishments:

– Graduated first black president of Harvard Law Review having won trust and support of conservative members.

So? What were his accomplishments while President of the Harvard Law Review? What did he write? What did he review? Anything? If he was such a great President of the Harvard Law Review, why can’t we know about his accomplishments there? Or was his only ‘accomplishment’ the fact that he was a BLACK President? Sorry, that’s not an accomplishment.

— Passed over 600 high-money law firm offers to work for civil rights practice at fractional pay.

This is an accomplishment? Please. Try harder.

— Added health insurance for 20,000 children, welfare reforms, earned-income tax credits, and increased minimum wage in Illinois.

Added health insurance for children? Was that as a supplement to his wife’s patient dumping at the University of Chicago Hospitals?

‘Welfare reforms’, huh? Does this mean that he helped to get people OFF of welfare and into jobs? Or did he simply enact “welfare reforms” to help keep people enslaved to the government and stuck on welfare?

‘Increased minimum wage’. Which is a job-killer, which hurts the low-income, low-skilled, minority community the most. Brilliant ‘accomplishment’.

— Reformed death-penalty cases, requiring that interrogations be video-recorded. Passed Illinois Senate 58-0. Signed into law by Illinois governor who first opposed Obama’s bill. Obama succeeded by building consensus with conservative opposition.

Ah yes, his death penalty reform. Which included voting against a bill that would have delivered the death penalty to gang members who murder first responders. Not to mention, Obama was the only member of the Illinois State Senate to vote against a bill that prohibited early release for sexual predators. Wow, great accomplishments there!

— Opposed Iraq war publicly, long before invasion. Accurately depicted it as of undetermined length, undetermined cost, undetermined objective, with a great likelihood of civil war breaking out.

He publicly opposed the Iraq war effort. Wow. What an accomplishment. And he was wrong on every account about it. Thanks only to the leadership of President Bush, the COIN (Counter Insurgency) plan and leadership of GEN Petraeus and the hard work of our US military, the Iraq war effort has been a great success. I don’t call being against something which is a success, to be an “accomplishment”. Nice try.

— Expanded program to locate and dismantle stray Russian WMD with Republican Senator Lugar.

Hmmm, I find it interesting that upon doing a Google search to verify this info, the only citation is this ‘list of accomplishments’ being copy/pasted all over different websites’ comment sections. Without, of course, any link to a credible source of the info.

— Passed major ethics and lobbying reform bill with Russ Feingold, insisting upon tougher restrictions around gifts, meals, etc. And extended the interval preventing exiting congress members from moving directly into lobbyist positions.

While this is true, people are honestly putting up Barack Obama as some example of good ethics? That’s a laugh! Let’s see… his shady land deal with corrupt Tony Rezko, his funneling of taxpayer money to his wife’s hospital, his wife’s patient dumping scheme at the University of Chicago Hospitals, his time on the Woods Fund with terrorist Billy Ayers shuffling money to ACORN and his radical mentor Rev Wright’s Church TUCC, just to name a few.

Let’s also not forget him getting his opponents kicked off the ballots when he ran for State Legislature and working with the Chicago media to smear Senator Jack Ryan by illegally releasing his divorce records to the public to force him to drop out of the race. Yeah, Barack Obama is one shining example of ethics in politics. Riiiiight. And I don’t think anyone in their right mind wants to talk about Obama’s record on lobbyists, including his lies about cozying up to the oil industry lobbyists.

— Toured Kuwait, Jordan, Israel, and Palestinian territories, telling Palestinian Authority Abbas that US would never recognize Hamas leaders until they renounced mission to attack Israel.

Yeah, ‘just words’ — as Obama would say — considering Obama is best buddies with two Israel-haters in Rev Jeremiah Wright and terrorist Billy Ayers. Not to mention his cozying up to PLO operative Rashid Khalidi in LA. Obama has a long record of being anti-Israel and pro-Palestine.

— Cosponsored Secure Orderly Immigration Act by John McCain. Passes Senate 62-36. Makes undocumented persons who have been here 5+ years only allowed to stay and apply for citizenship if they pay back-taxes, learn English, and have no criminal record.

Oh please. Not even John McCain’s supporters believed this was anything more than political bullshit. There was no need to pass this “Act”, since the laws were already on the books. The problem is that no one ENFORCES them. THAT is what I am talking about when I say ACCOMPLISHMENT. An accomplishment is something which produces RESULTS. Passing Acts and Laws are not accomplishments. Now, if those acts and laws produce results, THEN they can be deemed accomplishments. But just passing meaningless Acts and Laws which never have any effect on anything, since no one enforces them… not an accomplishment.

— Communicated frankly to Michigan automaker executives of need to increase fuel-efficiency standards by at least 3% per year.

OOOOOOH, he communicated! That’s an accomplishment? Communicating. Wow. High standards you have there. What did this communicating accomplish? NOTHING.

— Many aisle-crossing bi-partisan solutions throughout 10 years of senate experience (8 state, 2 federal).

Really? So what are they? Funny you don’t list them, just state something without attribution or citation. Brilliant.

— 100% approval rating from the League of Conservation Voters, Planned Parenthood. National Education Association gives him an “A” on their most recent scorecard.

OOOOOH! Now approval ratings by left-wing organizations are accomplishments! Wowee!

— In Illinois State Senate sponsored 780 bills, 280 were signed into law.

Really? What are they? What did these laws ACCOMPLISH (yes, there’s that word again — accomplishment)? Did he sponsor a jay-walking bill? Did he sponsor a walking and chewing gum at the same time bill? And what is the reason for 500 bills not being signed into law? Were they meaningless crap he sponsored just to make it look like he was doing something while in office? Funny how you don’t say.

Also, while you’re looking up that information, you might want to find out which ones were bills sponsored by other Democrats, but had Obama’s name added to them thanks to Obama’s buddy Emil Jones.

— In first year as US Senator, held 39 town-hall meetings throughout his state, sponsored 152 bills and resolutions, and cosponsored 427 more.

OOOOOOOOH! Holding meetings! Sponsoring and cosponsoring bills… which you don’t list. More non-accomplishments! Great job!

— Designated US Senate point person on ethics by Speaker Harry Reid.

Oh boy, the liberal idiot Reid appointed a man completely devoid of a history of good ethics, with absolutely no time in the Senate, as a point person on something on which he has no experience. What an accomplishment!

So this is the Obama-lovers’ defense of their messiah’s record of “accomplishments”. Pathetic.

Why it is Okay to Bash Christians and Jews, but no Other Group

Hmmm, this is actually a pretty interesting explanation. Makes sense. Thinking of the 10 Commandments — “Thou Shalt Not Have Any Other gods Before Me” — it makes sense than that any other religion other than Christianity/Judaism would be worshipping other gods before God and, thus, would be a-okay with the Devil. Anything which is in opposition to Christanity and Judaism is thus on the side of the Devil.

Never thought about it that way before, but it makes good sense.

“Why do LIBTARDS defend one, but not the other?”

Are you asking this in all seriousness? Why it is okay to bash Christians and Jews but no other group?

If yes: Because God is real, the Bible is true, and their spiritual father in hell knows this, and hates those who follow Him and his Word.

This is why it’s “ok” to teach Islam and the Quran in public schools, but don’t mention the Bible at all except to denigrate it. This is why it is “ok” to teach transcendental meditation and other new-age satanisms in gradeschool but not anything at all about the history of Israel prior to 1949. This is why cults like Scientology and JW’s and Heaven’s Gate and all the other twisted nonGospels are tolerated much moreso than Christianity and Judaism.

This might not be the answer you were looking for, but it’s the truth. Satan hates God and his people. EVERYTHING ELSE IS A-OK. Some wonder why the ACLU and N.O.W. are completely silent on the treatment of women and gays under Islamic governments. Well, it’s because the perpetrators are not Christians or Jews. Its simple, really, when you understand things of a spiritual nature.

If you believe that there are no things of a spiritual nature, then all of this would be incredibly confusing. It’s why most people are confused now, who went to public schools in America, about the Middle East. They were never taught about the entire history, only that some idiot crazy wingers think that Israel was a nation once in prehistoric times. But David? Saul? Philistia? Macabees? NO knowledge at all. It’s all been redacted, for the reason I stated. They are in service, whether they know it or not, of the Devil in hell.
