Old Man Shouts at the Wind at National Security Summit

At that Iowa National Security Action Summit this weekend included a retired admiral, who made some truly warped claims. He said that Obama and Bill and Hillary Clinton are working together to destroy America by supporting the reactionary Muslim terrorists.

Not only is Obama anti-American and anti-Western, Lyons said, but he is actively “pro-Islam, pro-Iranian, and pro-Muslim Brotherhood.” Obama’s supposed support of the Muslim Brotherhood, he said, has allowed the group to “penetrate every American national security and intelligence agency”, bringing our nation to ruin from the inside. These infiltrators will soon attempt to substitute the American Constitution with “draconian Sharia Law” if Americans do not act immediately, Lyon warned.

He added that Obama, in his attempt to take down America, is using sequestration “as a vehicle for unilateral disarmament” to weaken the nation and further permit the penetration of Islam.

Obama is not acting alone, however, as according to Lyons Hillary Clinton is in on the deal too. Lyons prefaced his criticism of Hillary Clinton by claiming that the Russian government blackmailed President Bill Clinton using inside knowledge of his affair with Monica Lewinsky, leading Clinton to give the Russians $4.6 billion in “cold, hard cash.”

Unilateral disarmament? For crying out loud, we spend almost as much on the military as every other nation in the world combined. The sequestration deal didn’t even add up to a tiny percent or a percent. This is like claiming that someone is trying to kill you if they give you a manicure.

    Someone remind me of where the House Republicans were during that whole “sequestration” thing.

    D. C. Sessions, exactly. Where were they when Obama handed them his sequestration law?

    He apparently forgot that the USSR unilaterally disarmed of a lot of classes of nuclear weapons, which the US finally had to match – leading to the START talks. By the way, I’m willing to bet that the “safer warhead” program that the pentagon has been pushing for will embed the requirement to test them — essentially the US will violate the test-ban treaties “in order to make the world safer” Irony, thy name is power.

    Odds are this guy is a former Bircher who’s flashing back to those days.

    Then surely we need to hold some former admirals accountable for gross dereliction of duty on their watch. Do we still keel-haul?

    It’s worse than that, Admiral Lyons: Obama is orchestrating the takeover of the entire planet by the Draconian Realm. Look out — here comes Princess Ardala!

    Jim Webb was the Secretary of the Navy when Lyons ‘suddenly retired’ in 1987, I have a hunch Webb was not exactly disappointed by the news. Lyons, along with Dick Marcinko, came up with Seal Team VI and ‘Red Cell’, I wonder if the Admiral thinks his ‘pretend terrorists’ were the real thing and have been in control ever since the 1980s. I wonder how much those fear-building tactics that were used have influenced the nation’s history over the last quarter century or more.

    Re; Area Man @ #5…

    I don’t think the practice is still current. Unfortunately (over the objections of the enlisted sailors), flogging has also gone out of use as well.

  • busterggi

    Obama is a terrible planner – first he guts the military so that its powerless then he uses that military to take over the country by force.

  • Bruce

    So Admiral Lyons doesn’t like Hillary. Can we take it that he is endorsing Bernie Sanders for President?

    The Muslim Brotherhood is the Communist Internationale of the new McCarthyism. Both are real organizations with real agendas being blown up as the center of Monolithic Communism/Islamism. Like Monolithic Communism Monolithic Islamism posits that groups that are hostile to each other (like, say, Shia Iran and the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood) are secretly working together for a common goal. To say that someone is pro-Iran and pro-Muslim Brotherhood is like saying that someone is pro-Putin and pro-Obama.

    Is the guy who shows up in the still of the video the fellow who told the Benham Brothers (in the next post) what George Washington said, and how he was sworn in as President? He kind of looks like he might have been there.

    My understanding is that the problem was not so much the size of the sequestration cuts as the abruptness and (statutorily mandated) blindness of their application. That said, the basic point holds: this dude sounds like a retooled Bircher loony.

    Betcha the notes for his speech had John Kennedy, Dwight Eisenhower, and Communists crossed out and replaced with Obama, Clinton, and Muslim Brotherhood respectively.
