Doug Patton wrote on Nov. 30, 2009 an article for GOPUSA with this caption – Are These The Actions Of a President Who Loves His Country? “I have grown weary of pretending that Barack Obama has anything but disdain for the United States of America. So let me ask the question on all of our minds: Are the actions of this president those of a man committed to what is best for his country?
“With small business, the engine of our economy, on the ropes, Obama and his [Democrats] in Congress are trying to ram through a health care reform bill that will, in the words of Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn, bring about our ‘fiscal RUIN.’ Is this the action of a president committed to doing what is best for his country?
“Obama continues to push ‘Cap and Trade’ legislation, with ALL the taxes, FEES, energy PRICE INCREASES and RESTRICTION ON FREEDOM that inevitably accompany it, on the strength of junk science that is being discredited every day. A growing number of reputable scientists (31,000 with 9,000 having PhDs) are expressing doubt that global warming even exists, and recently a whistleblower made public thousands of insider e-mails showing that climate change advocates KNOW the whole thing is a scam!!! Yet, the president intends to go to the Copenhagen climate conference and PRETEND that none of this ever happened. Is this the action of a president committed to doing what is best for his country?
“So preoccupied with his domestic agenda (socialism) is this president, that an urgent request for more troops from Gen. Stanley McChrystal, his hand-picked commander in Afghanistan, has been collecting dust on his desk in the Oval Office since August 11. It is now December. Gen. McChrystal has said that anything less than 40,000 troops will guarantee failure, so naturally Obama will send fewer than that (8,000 to date). Is this the action of a president committed to doing what is best for his country?
“Obama was quick to jump to conclusions when Harvard Professor Henry Gates was arrested breaking into his own house. Although he admitted that he didn’t have all the facts, the president nonetheless proclaimed that the police ‘acted stupidly.’ Yet when an Islamic fanatic in our own armed forces murdered 13 innocent people at Fort Hood, Texas, in an obvious act of terror, we were told by our president not to jump to conclusions (Remember, Obama confessed to being a Muslim in an ABC-TV interview). Is this the action of a president committed to doing what is best for his country?
“The president and his attorney general, Eric Holder, have decided that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of 9/11, along with his fellow terrorists, will get a trial in civilian court in New York City, with ALL THE RIGHTS afforded American citizens under the U.S. Constitution. This outrageous decision even caused some in the generally uncritical media to question its wisdom, whereupon both Obama and Holder immediately poisoned the jury pool by pronouncing the defendants ‘guilty’ and promising that they will be executed. Is this the action of a president committed to doing what is best for his country?
“And finally, there is the tale of Matthew McCabe, Jonathan Keefe, and Julio Hertas, three Navy SEALs who should be receiving commendations from their commander-in-chief, but who, sadly, will instead receive court-martials. The charge? They gave the most wanted terrorist in all of Iraq a boo-boo on his lip! That’s right. The man responsible for murdering four American contractors in March of 2004, mutilating and burning their bodies, dragging them through the streets of Fallujah and hanging what was left of them from a bridge over the Euphrates River for the world press to dutifully photograph, was finally captured by these three brave Navy SEALs. But in the course of subduing him, apparently he got slugged in the mouth. Do you care? I know I don’t. But apparently our politically correct military does, from the commander-in-chief on down. Obama pardoned a turkey last week, but heroes he court-martials.
“For the last time I ask you, is this the action of a president committed to doing what is best for his country?”
Retired Lt. Col. Allen West of the Fort Hood
“Thirteen American Soldiers were killed and another 30 wounded at a horrific mass shooting at the U.S. Army installation, Ft. Hood, Texas. As I watched in horror and then anger, I recalled my two years of final service in the Army as a Battalion Commander at Ft. Hood, 2002-2004.
“My wife and two daughters were stunned at the incident having lived on the post in family housing. A military installation, whether Army, Navy, Air force, Marine, or Coast Guard, is supposed to be a safe sanctuary for our Warriors and their families. It is intended to provide a home whereby our ‘Band of Brothers and Sisters’ can find solace and bond beyond just another foxhole, but as family units. A military installation is supposed to be a place where our Warriors train for war, to serve and protect our Nation.
“On Thursday, 5 November 2009, Ft. Hood became a part of the battlefield in the war against Islamic totalitarianism and state sponsored terrorism. There may be those who feel threatened by my words and would even recommend they not be uttered. To those individuals, I say step aside because now is not the time for cowardice! Our Country has become so paralyzed by political correctness that we have allowed a vile and determined ENEMY to breach what should be the safest place in America, an Army post.
“We have become so politically correct that our media is more concerned about the stress of the shooter, Major Nidal Malik Hasan. The misplaced benevolence intending to portray him as a victim is despicable. The fact that there are some who have now created an entire new classification called – ‘pre-virtual vicarious Post Traumatic Stress Disorder’ – is unconscionable.
“This is not a ‘man caused disaster.’ It is what it is, an Islamic jihadist attack!!! We have seen this before in 2003 when a SGT Hasan of the 101st Airborne Division threw hand grenades and opened fire into his Commanding Officer’s tent in Kuwait. We have seen the foiled attempt of Albanian Muslims who sought to attack Ft. Dix, NJ. Recently, we saw a young convert to Islam, named Carlos Bledsoe, travel to Yemen, receive terrorist training, and return to gun down two U.S. Soldiers at a Little Rock, Arkansas Army recruiting station. We thwarted another Islamic terrorist plot in North Carolina, which had U.S. Marine Corps Base, Quantico, as a target. What have we done with all these prevalent trends? NOTHING!!!
“What we see are recalcitrant leaders who are REFUSING to confront the issue, Islamic infiltration into America, and possibly further into our Armed Services. Instead, we have a multiculturalism and diversity syndrome on steroids. Major Hasan should have never been transferred to Ft. Hood. Matter of fact, he should have been Chaptered from the Army. His previous statements, poor evaluation reports, and the fact that the FBI had him under investigation for jihadist website posting should have been proof positive.
“However, what we have is a typical LIBERAL approach to find a victim, not the 13 murdered and 30 wounded Soldiers and Civilians, but rather the poor Islamic terrorist shooter. A shooter who we are told was a great American, who loved the Army and serving his Nation, and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) stating that his actions had nothing to do with religious belief.
“We know that Major Hasan deliberately planned this episode; he did give away his possessions. He stood atop a table in the confined space of the Soldier Readiness Center shouting ‘Allahu Akhbar,’ the same chant as the 9/11 terrorists and those we fight against overseas in the Iraq and Afghanistan theaters of operation!!!
“No one in leadership seems willing to sound the alarm for the American people; they are therefore complicit in any future attacks. Our Congress should suspend the insidious action to vote on a preposterous and unconstitutional healthcare bill and RESOLVE the issue of “protecting the American people.”
“The recent incidents in Dearborn, Michigan, Boston, Massachusetts, Dallas, Texas, and Chicago, Illinois should bear witness to the fact that we have an Islamic terrorism issue in America. The Council on American Islamic Relations is an illegitimate terrorist associated organization, which should be disbanded. We have Saudi Arabia funding close to 80% of the mosques in the United States, one right here in South Florida, Pompano Beach. Are we building churches and synagogues in Saudi Arabia? Are ‘Kaffirs’ and ‘Infidels’ allowed to travel to Mecca? NO!!! SO MUCH FOR PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE!
“Saudi Arabia is sponsoring RADICAL Imams who enter into our prisons and convert young men into a virulent Wahhabbist ideology … one resulting in four individuals wanting to destroy synagogues in New York with plastic explosives. Thank God the explosives were dummy. They are sponsoring textbooks, which present centric revisionist history in our schools. We must recognize that there is an urgent need to separate the theo-political radical Islamic ideology out of our American society. We must begin to demand surveillance of suspected Imams and mosques that are spreading hate and preaching the overthrow of our Constitutional Republic … that [kind of] speech is NOT protected under the First Amendment. It is SEDITION, and if done by an American, it is TREASON!!!
“There should NOT be some 30 Islamic terrorist training camps in America that has nothing to do with the First Amendment or Freedom of Religion. The Saudis are NOT our friends, and any American political figure that believes such is delusional. When tolerance becomes a one-way street, it certainly leads to cultural suicide!!! We are on that street. Liberals cannot be trusted to defend our Republic, because their sympathies obviously lie with their perceived victim, Major Nidal Malik Hasan.
“I make no apologies for these words, and anyone angered by them, please go to Ft. Hood and look into the eyes of the real victims. The tragedy at Ft. Hood, Texas did not have to happen. Consider now the feelings of the Warriors deployed into combat zones who now are concerned that their loved ones are in a combat zone. Ft. Hood suffered an Islamic jihadist attack, stop the denial, and realize a simple point. The reality of your enemy must become your own.
“Steadfast and Loyal, Lt. Col. Allen B. West (U.S. Army, Retired).”
Switzerland has seen the results of Islamic takeover of whole section of cities in Europe and voted to not allow Muslim build minarets on their mosques. Reason: minarets are a sign that Islam has conquered that town, city, or country. The United Nations immediately called Switzerland a “discriminatory” country.
What does God think? “Can two walk together, except they be agreed” (Amos 3:3).
