Whose military is it anyway? President Obama claims it for himself — again — at G20 summit [video]

On August 30, President Obama informed the American public that the U.S. military is at his personal disposal. And today at the G20 summit, Obama reiterated to the world that all our American armed forces are belong to him:

Oh yes he did (occurs around 1:20 mark):

And tweeters couldn’t help being thoroughly incensed at the nerve of the narcissist in chief:


Amen to that.

  • Magnifico

    ….and we’re his subjects.

    • OLLPOH ~ America

      And we are at his mercy and the U.S. Military (our relatives and friends and neighbors) are now his mercenaries.

      • Leon Davis

        Wrong, my friend. Obama has the US military fighting on the side of al-Qaida and therefore, they are the mercenaries of Qatar and the Saudis.

        • OLLPOH ~ America

          We are saying the same thing Leon. He is making Our Military, composed of our friends, our family, our neighbors, our countrymen, into mercenaries of Qatar and the Saudi’s. Proxy war is not the job of our U.S. Military. He uses them as pawns. We the people are not being served. This serves no one but Obama and all his whims and petty megalomaniac ego and his staunch sycophants.

          • Leon Davis

            Agreed, my friend. Interestingly enough, we hear no more about bringing “democracy” to Syria, do we? That’s because it never was about “democracy”: it’s about “jihad”. The democracy nonsense was Hillary’s wheeze in order to rationalize, in her own mind, Obama’s jihadist goals. He’s putting US military forces at the service of jihad. What a massive cosmic joke that’s turning out to be.

        No it is not a joke. It is really a World Wide Caliphate.

      • copperpeony

        It is not a joke. These people in the House and Senate are all like ‘deer in headlights’. Useless.

        • Leon Davis

          Because no one wants to be the first to call Obama “a jihadist”.

    Next he’ll say: “I didn’t say it was my military. The world said it was my military.”

      Less than that.

    • Leon Davis

      I doubt that’s going to happen, Perso. For awhile there I was beginning to think Congress would give the doof an Enabling Act. That ain’t gonna happen now. If anything, Congress is going to authorize General Dempsey of the JCS to take day-to-day operational control of the military. I have no idea how Congress is going to take the hand grenade away from him before he pulls the pin but they’d better think of something real soon.

  • © Sponge

    It’s OUR military, asshole. It’s ALL OURS……every last bit of it. WE PAY FOR IT…..OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE.

    What a egotistical, narcissistic douchebag this guy is.

  • © Sponge

    I’m starting to see some very large similarities between his “leadership” style and one deceased Hugo Chavez.

    • Leon Davis

      Oh, it goes way farther than that, amigo. Hugo Chavez may have been a schmuck but he had his good points. At least Chavez delivered something to poor people and the middle class even if he made a dog’s breakfast out of the process. Chavez was a military guy and a patriot. He could point to the place where he was born. He was at home in the barrios. You knew who his friends and relatives were. Chavez would sing love songs in the middle of speeches. This fellow we have now might as well be an undocumented immigrant from the Planet Zorg. No friends. No family. No history. Has done nothing whatsoever for anyone but himself. Has accomplished zero. Pretty much hates everybody. Has a massive chip on his shoulder. By all indications, even his wife can’t stand the sight of him. Can’t give a speech unless someone writes it out for him. Is totally ignorant of basic American history. There are people who have massive egos in this world but you forgive them for it because they are geniuses at what they do. I suppose there’s a reason for this fellow’s humongous ego but I’ll be horn-swoggled if I can figure it out. Everything he touches turns right to merde. Nah, I don’t see much resemblance to Chavez. More like Robert Mugabe maybe. Or Papa Doc.

    • Leon Davis

      No doubt al-Qaida can call in a US air strike. How much you want to bet the CIA has set that one up? Wasn’t al-Qaida created by the CIA back in the 70’s? I think so.

  • Archer305

    Anybody else think that me may try to take this bill that they are try to pass, which grants him the ability to do whatever he wants with the military (it might say “in Syria” but he has no need for semantics), and try to say he can deploy them domestically against “his” opponents? You know, us “enemies of the state” and “extremists” as in the DHS training docs? I dunno, seems fishy to me.

    • stuckinIL4now

      What Obumuh wants to do in Syria mostly likely would lead to WWIII. If he were to try to deploy the military domestically, it would result in the Second American Revolution and he would find himself immediately surrounded by “his” military.

      DHS, yeah we should be very worried about them. I highly doubt he could get OUR Military to turn on their own people…their own families…..Generals maybe but I believe OUR brave men and women would ignore their orders and protect us and our Constitution. They took the oath if they have honor they’ll stand by it.

    “I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America, from all enemies, both foreign and domestic.”

    “Words…just, words!” ~ Barack H. Obama, Cir. 2007
    Hasn’t this president, who took the above oath of office, violated that sacred oath repeatedly, without consequences from legislative or judicial branches, or from the American people? Why is he still in office?

    When no action is taken to make this president operate within the restrictions placed upon him by the Constitution, it is not OUT OF RESPECT for THE OFFICE of President, it is out of cowardice from those whose duty it is to seek relief from this wannabe tyrant. If the narrative continues unchanged, I fear the worst for our country.

    • Hiraghm

      Moot point, since he’s not eligible to even hold the office.

    Too bad there isn’t truthful and fact-filled journalism anymore to call him out on it. Propaganda and entertainment news still cover the me-I-myself presidency, but even so, negative reporting on their political idol is verboten.

      I want to believe you. I separated in 2002, and haven’t worked in DoD since 2007, so I don’t know the current viewpoint of the average soldier on all that is going on today. But I can’t help but doubt that the senior military leadership would not support Obama’s decisions even if they are a violation of his Executive powers. He’s had 4.5 years to place key leaders who support him, and I doubt the media will hold him to task if he oversteps his span of control.

        Nixon presided over a gas crisis as well.

        • Michelle

          I was seven yrs old when Nixon left office, have no memories of his time in office so I can’t say I don’t miss someone I have no memories of. I remember VERY clearly the Iran hostage crisis while Carter was in office. I also have VERY clear memories of long lines at gas stations, people allowed to get gas only on odd/even days depending on last number on their license plate and the introduction of locking gas caps because gas theft became the norm. I can only miss or not miss those I have memories of.

            Didn’t realize we were playing a game of “Top This”, I was explaining I can’t miss Nixon because I don’t remember his time in office, but can say I don’t miss Carter because I remember things that went while he ran the country. I was a kid in the 70’s too.

          • http://kevincdavis.net Kevin Davis

            That was my situation as well.. I remember most of the Carter admin, not the Gas crisis…

          • Michelle

            I remember it only because of the long wait in line to get gas when I was in the car with my mom, and the lines going down the street. And for some reason, although I was very young, I remember the odd/even plate days and everyone getting locking gas caps. I remember the hostage situation in Iran because it dominated the news for over a year, although I was too young to understand what was going on. I remember that a peanut farmer was President and that his brother Billy was a drunk. Other than that, there’s not much I remember about Carter. Reagan was the first President where I was old enough to start understanding things…and I remember him doing a hell of a job.

    Last Friday (8/30) Brian Kilmeade of Fox & Friends sat down with GW Bush for an interview before a charity golf event for families of fallen and wounded veterans.


    At just before the 5:00 mark, Brian remarks how all the vets he’s met have told him that they were glad to serve Bush (as President). Bush cut him off immediately, saying, “They didn’t serve ME, they served the country.”

    He also refers to “our military” several times, quite naturally. Note: this was a week ago, before all the BHO hubbub about this came up.

    Such a difference!

    This is the talk of an egotistical brat. Of course, he’s done everything he can to handicap our magnificent military. Somehow, someway it still performs it’s assigned missions.

    • farhan842003

      How has he tried to “handicap” our military? Hopefully you’re not referring to the sequester that he himself has consistently said he would like to repeal, right?

      • Irishwren

        Alright child. Listen up. In the beginning the sequester was the “brainchild” of Obama who in his ever clear omniscient thinking put it forth as a consequence if the Joint Select Committe did not produce bipartisan legislation on budget cuts. Obama signed the order putting sequestration into effect in March of this year. In other words this is Obama’s doing. It’s time to stop listening to the pretty words and watch what he actually does. And, btw, why do you defend someone who hurts you? I suggest psychological help.

    Essay in Tribes.
    Obama’s proclamation in knowing ‘all’ history because he was the grandson of a Muslim, and he spent childhood years in Indonesia and there are tribes where his father’s side of his family originated is going to solve the MidEast troubles; for him to brush up on ‘the all knower of history’ in objective knowledge one might fare by learning that just in North America that there are 500 (300 hundred recognized by the U.S. Census); How many tribes still exist? The ones that are no longer here, where did they go? What happened to them? And to know the inner fighting amongst each individual tribe?

    Yet, today he foments the white man of today along with ‘the settlers’ and is derisive in Tribes and Clans, and is scholarly in his Communist Saul Alinski, Karl Marx, MalcolmX, Black Liberation/James H. Cone-Jeremiah Wright seditiousness and wrote such proof in his autobiographies…

    I’ll let you all figure out which historical figures I’m referring to.

    Thank God for what is left of the Constitution, for even that restrains this dangerous man to some degree…
