Nobody is yet daring to address it in what is euphemistically called “the mainstream media,” but there’s a strong and growing undercurrent of rebellion among some of the most accomplished retired military brass in the nation.
Yesterday, retired Maj. General Paul E. Vallely made his most passionate and forceful case for the “forced resignations” of Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and the top leadership in Congress from both parties for policies he says are “destroying America.”
He’s calling for massive demonstrations in the streets like the kind that brought down the government of Mohamed Morsi in Egypt.
“We are in a war for America,” he told WND.
And he’s not alone in making such dire observations.
Of particular concern to the generals – including Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin, a founder of the Army’s elite Delta Force, and Medal of Honor recipient Maj. Gen. Patrick Henry Brady – is what appears to be a purge of the top officer class in the U.S. military characterized by some as part of an all-out attack on America’s armed forces.
But that’s just the tipping point of their concerns.
- The government is taking the country off the fiscal cliff with out-of-control borrowing and spending with no end in sight.
- Washington is conducting an unconstitutional and lawless power grab – spying on its own citizens, usurping authority left to the states and local governments and abusing federal agencies to create fear, uncertainty and anxiety among the citizenry.
- Obamacare, sold to an unwilling public as a means of providing millions of Americans with health insurance, is actually stripping tens of millions of a way to pay for medical care after less than 60 days since the legislation took effect.
Among the speakers at that rally was former Rep. Bob Barr who holds a unique role in American history. He was the very first member of Congress to call for the impeachment of Bill Clinton. It came at a time when the idea of impeachment was considered preposterous by the ruling class and the media. Yet, it came to pass within a relatively short period of time. Today, dozens of members of Congress are already on the record as supporting the impeachment of Barack Obama for high crimes and misdemeanors.
Those crimes have been well chronicled in the book “Impeachable Offenses” by New York Times best-selling authors Aaron Klein and Brenda Elliott, published earlier this year.
There’s a growing recognition that America is nearing the point of no return – a historic moment of critical mass, the threshold, the boiling point.
Things are falling apart – but not by chance, not even by official ineptitude. It’s a result of what appears to be calculated chaos, a deliberate effort by those in power to bring America down, to “fundamentally change” history’s greatest experiment in liberty and self-government, a plan to undermine the rule of law through the creation of crises and their ruthless exploitation.
It’s all part of a conscious betrayal of the principles upon which America was founded. The only thing that can stop it is a massive outpouring of strength and force by the remnant of Americans who will dare, as America’s founders did, to sacrifice their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to preserve and restore liberty, morality and common sense no matter the cost.
It’s time to decide whether you will sit back and watch the American Dream pass quietly into the night or if you will stand up boldly and courageously in response to the clarion calls for an uprising.
In 2009, we saw such an uprising.
It was beautiful to behold.
But the spontaneous movement we witnessed develop then needs staying power and punch. Think of it as a dress rehearsal for the real tea-party movement that is desperately needed now more than ever.
It’s time. The hour is late. Get mobilized. Be ready.
America may not get another chance.
