The enemy within enables the enemy without
In an act of unparalleled arrogance while giving the middle finer to America’s military personnel, Barack Obama on Wednesday vetoed the $612 billion defense authorization bill.*
This is the first time in over half a century American citizens and those who serve to protect them have faced such an act of betrayal and have been left so vulnerable in an increasingly dangerous world.
Obama’s overt act of hostility effectively shuts down the U.S. military while Islamic jihadists, Russia and China are in aggressor mode. Among its provisions, the bill boosted military pay and benefits. Obama’s veto comes as retaliation because the proposed budget holds the line on domestic spending. It also makes it more difficult for Obama to engage in the risky business of transferring terrorists being detained in Guantanamo Bay to prisons within the United States.
With his defiant veto, Obama reveals himself as a greater threat to our military than any foreign power since none of them have the ability to immobilize defense funding.
Stars and Stripes reports the move throws the Defense Department budget into uncertainty, and Congress will need to find a solution to the impasse by the time a temporary budget expires Dec. 11 or active-duty pay will be frozen and about 350,000 civilian Defense Department workers will face furloughs.
Were that to occur, count on Barack Obama using the standoff to employ one of his notorious executive orders to authorize another flood of unvetted Muslim “refugees,” further degrading security in our homeland.
