01/21/2014 American safety is at risk due to massive military cuts. World Net Daily has reported extensively on the fact that Obama has purged 197 high-ranking officers from the military in the past five years. Now that the upper ranks have been thinned of officers who identify as conservatives and Christians, Obama has set his sights on the lower ranks. The Army Times reports that 2,000 Captains and Majors will be sent into early retirement, starting this March, severely downgrading USA strength.
Retired Maj. Gen. Patrick Brady told WND, “There is no doubt he (Obama) is intent on emasculating the military and will fire anyone who disagrees with him.” Retired officers have told Infowars that Obama is using a new “litmus test” to screen the military for his political enemies. If an officer fails this test by stating that they would not fire on US citizens, Obama fires them.
Pray For US believes that Obama will use this year’s military review boards, which are about to start, to boot thousands of conservative Christian Captains and Majors out of the military. Obama views everything in his own partisan terms and in terms of expanding his own personal power. Obama joked about targeting his political enemies with the IRS back in 2009 and then it turned out to be true. This went on for years unchecked and the reason why no one at the IRS spoke out against the abuse is because there were no longer any conservatives or Christians employed there.
Obama wants to turn the military into the same sort of organization as the IRS and Eric Holder’s Justice Department — only those who identify as pro-homosexual, anti-American and anti-patriotic will be allowed to serve. He views conservative Christian troops as his own personal political enemies, even though those same troops are willing to fight and die for the United States.
The Army Times says that 19,000 US Army Captains and Majors will be screened beginning in March, and 2,000 of them will be sent to early retirement. Obama purged the upper ranks of conservative Christians and he will do the same thing in the lower ranks only if we let him. We must urge the House to forbid any “litmus test” regarding religion or politics. If the armed forces are downsizing, then the reduction must be fairly applied.
Christian soldiers have bravely fought and died for our nation for centuries and Pray For US believes that those soldiers epitomize some of the very best traits of America: Honor, duty, sacrifice, love and courage. Obama sees the troops as just another obstacle to his personal power. He now refers to the US military as “my military” in his speeches. He wants an army that will follow his orders entirely, whether those orders are lawful and constitutional or not.
It is as King David said in Psalm 109:2-5, “For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful have opened against me; they have spoken against me with a lying tongue. They have also surrounded me with words of hatred, and fought against me without a cause. In return for my love they are my accusers, but I give myself to prayer.”
Obama is doing much worse than simply speaking out against conservative and Christian soldiers. He is firing them, destroying their careers or forcing them into retirement if they don’t agree with his socialist, pro-homosexual makeover of the military. While we pray for the protection of our troops as David did, we must also put our faith into action to try to preserve their jobs.
The review boards that Obama will be using to retire lower ranking conservative Christian officers convene in March. We are speaking up now in order to give Congress enough time to intervene and prevent Obama from carrying out another witch hunt against conservative Christians.
