“We are going to fundamentally change America.”

What’s that saying, “Times are a changing”? Boy, are they ever. The past six years – and for many others decades – have provided what many once thought were conspiracies are no realities. I continue to find myself shocked at the headlines and realize how disappointed my father and the rest of his generation would be to see what is happening in this country. Six years ago an inexperienced Senator from Illinois, with a Muslim upbringing, and a Muslim name, and mysterious background somehow wooed an entire nation and was elected President. He made no effort to hide his agenda to fundamentally change this country:


For most of us that pay attention what I have mentioned is old news. What is still unknown is just how damaging and widespread the impact of the Obama Administration will be. Oh – and before I forget – I know it is not just the Liberal’s that have assisted in degrading this country. I would submit though that it is the Conservatives, and the Tea Party that are true Patriots and are on the side of the Constitution and change that could lead us back to what this country once was. How many Liberal politicians were out there moving barricades for World War Two vets?

Every day the evidence is mounting that this country is FUNDAMENTALLY changing right before our eyes:

  • Navy SEALs Ordered To Remove “Don’t Tread on Me” Navy Jack From Uniforms- from OathKeepers.org

According to Navy SEAL veteran Chris Hagerman, who writes over at NavySeals.com,“senior personnel from within WARCOM and Naval Special Warfare are putting out instructions and memos stating that Navy SEALs are no longer authorized to wear the ‘Don’t Tread on Me’ patch on their combat uniforms.”

Here is the text of one such memo, posted by Hagerman:


WARCOM and GROUP TWO/ONE have pushed out the uniform policy for NWU III and any patches worn on the sleeve.

All personnel are only authorized to wear the matching “AOR” American Flag patch on the right shoulder.  You are no longer authorized to wear the “Don’t Tread On Me” patch.

Again the only patch authorized for wear is the American flag on the right shoulder. Please pass the word to all.

This is not sitting well with Hagerman and other SEALs.  Here is some of what Hagerman had to say:
The “Don’t Tread On Me” flag or First Navy Jack has flown on naval ships throughout our history including during the American Revolutionary War.  The rattlesnake is especially significant and symbolic.  The rattle has thirteen layers, signifying the original Thirteen Colonies.

Official Navy instruction has authorized all naval ships to fly the flag throughout the duration of the War On Terror.

Why is it then that senior personnel from within WARCOM and Naval Special Warfare are putting out instructions and memos stating that Navy SEALs are no longer authorized to wear the “Don’t Tread on Me” patch on their combat uniforms along with other custom patches?



 I have had several emails from readers bringing this to my attention – but honestly did not think much of it until now. It appears that the Obama Administration is ridding the Armed Forces of its commanders. Why? Good question.

Over at TheBlaze.com :

Nine senior commanding generals have been fired by the Obama administration this year, leading to speculation by active and retired members of the military that a purge of its commanders is underway.

Retired generals and current senior commanders that have spoken with TheBlaze say the administration is not only purging the military of commanders they don’t agree with, but is striking fear in the hearts of those still serving.

The timing comes as the five branches of the U.S. armed forces are reducing staff due to budget cuts, and as U.S. troops are expected to withdraw from Afghanistan next year.

“I think they’re using the opportunity of the shrinkage of the military to get rid of people that don’t agree with them or not tow the party line. Remember, as (former White House chief of staff) Rahm Emanuel said, never waste a crisis,” a senior retired general told TheBlaze on the condition of anonymity because he still provide services to the government and fears possible retribution.

“Even as a retired general, it’s still possible for the administration to make life miserable for us. If we’re working with the government or have contracts, they can just rip that out from under us,” he said.

Retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely, an outspoken critic of the Obama administration, said the White House fails to take action or investigate its own, but finds it easy to fire military commanders “who have given their lives for their country.”

I am sure I will get some flack for pointing out the “Muslim upbringing, and a Muslim name”. I pointed to this as on September 11th, 2001 this country was attacked and had war declared on it by radical Muslims. How fast the American people of today forget. By the way – some may criticize where these news stories are coming from due to they not being “mainstream” enough.

  1. Rourke, I will suggest to you that the winds are turning in our favor. The “be all, end all” of the progressives is going to do them in, the ACA, a self inflicted wound that will touch the lives of almost everyone…. and it will do it within the next year. That is why the Dems are running around like their hair is on fire. In 2016 the people will be hungry for an UN-DC person, no senators or congressmen need apply, Governors will be the favored option. Might I suggest your own Nikki Haley as a possible, or John Kasich. Or even Chris Christie…. I’m not looking for perfect, just a nudge in the right direction. Today a nudge in the right direction would feel pretty damn good….

  2. John Gault, I wish I shared your optimism. Personally, I do not see the United States making it to 2016 as a Constitutional Republic. I agree with Rourke that this Marxist Moslem (and closet homosexual) was out to fundamentally change America all along. That change equates to the destruction of Capitalism and the establishment of the United States as a Socialist/Communist/Globalist nation. The senior military commanders that Barry is ousting cannot be trusted to carry out his nefarious plans. I should say his handler’s plans, as Barry is way too stupid to manage our demise alone. As long as the media protects him, Obamacare will not draw the negative attention that this dismal failure warrants. True, millions of supporters may turn against him when their insurance premiums double, or they lose coverage all together. But, the last election proved to me that we can no longer trust the polls. Satan’s father (Soros) has purchased control of the count. I fear we are in for dark days, indeed.

  3. Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

    When you remove those barriers and people who would provide a check on tyranny, then ‘who watches the watchmen?’

    I remember a line from the movie “Independence Day” when Jeff Goldblums’ character says “It’s like in chess: First, you strategically position your pieces and when the timing is right you strike.” All these years those in control have been strategically positioning their pieces, while keeping our attention on things like Brittany Spears latest haircut, or Global Warming, and now here we are on the eve of destruction.

    Talk about life imitating art. I remember thinking about Star Wars Episode III right as they announced the outcome of the 2012 elections.
    Padmé: “So this is how liberty dies, with thunderous applause.”

  4. I think your exactly right in your article. We have to look around and see how much our population has grown and how self centered the new generations are. They do not think they only act, that is what will bring us down. When it comes apart only the baby boomers will have an idea of what to do. It will be pure chaos.

  5. @John Gault: Oh, that what you say would prove true! But if you know the Word of G-d, you know it is not going to end as you hope. I truly am sorry to have to tell you that.

    As to B-HO being a Muslim, no question about it; his agenda is just as clear. Part of the “great delusion” of the last days, “a delusion so great, that IF IT WERE POSSIBLE, even the very elect would be deceived”. (Emphasis added)

  6. if we are LUCKY the country will make it to 1216 but that being said if things keep going the way they are im afraid there WILL be full civil war with martial law being declared with us being STUCK with the pos in the white house for a LONG TIME and in the end the country being split up into many smaller nations and becoming balkinized

  7. It will be chaos for some. For those of of us who took cartain steps, we will not necessarily have the upper hand but we won’t go down without a fight.The military men who were ousted will be coming back to haunt the Dumbocrat in the W H and some of his cronies are already jumping ship like rats that they are.There are a lot of us combat veterans who still know what to do.

  8. Rest assured that in academia and in history books the Obama years will be written as a great success, a transformation for the better. A thousand years from now, around camp fires and in tribal ceremonies songs will be sung, chants chanted and the name “Obama” will be honored……. I weep for that future…..

  9. I couldn’t agree more with what you are saying. I’m 66 and have always tried to keep informed about what goes on locally and national. I’ve never seen so much damage done to our country in so short of time. Those of us that are Cristians and probably others can jus feel inside that something is wrong. I just hope we haven’t hit a balance point of people that just don’t give a rats butt and those on some gov. hand out. There’s just not enough people that are willing to do what might have to be done to maintain our country as it was formed to be. Thanks keep up the good work.

  10. Well, John Gault…if there is any good news…I am equally convinced that a thousand years from now Obama WILL NOT be heralded as a “good guy”. Not by any stretch. I believe he will be remembered for exactly what he is.

  11. servantheart, perhaps your right, maybe in the future the people will be wiser than the people today who re-elect incompetence, who excuse failure, who prefer grand speeches to quiet deeds, who cheer for more abortion rights and demand that the “PLEDGE” and prayer be forever removed from our schools and public places, who celebrate the greater need for SNAP and welfare, who believe, despite histories many examples, that the answer to every problem is yet another desperately huge government program….. one can only hope…

  12. JG, I doubt it. My beliefs are not based on the capabilities of humanity; those, as you point out, have been proven over and over again. “For all have sinned; all fall short of the Glory of G-d”. It’s our fallen nature. My beliefs are based on divine intervention from what I read in the Word of G-d.

  13. Prepare for the worst but hope for the best – words for the time. My husband has more faith in his fellow Americans than we do. He believes even those on hand outs will wake up and fight back. I have always loved his ability to see the best in others. He feels everyone will wake up when pushed too far then fight back. I fear that if everyone does wake up and fights back it might be too late for many. I am hoping that military, ex and active, will be able to help those of us who will welcome their help. Organizations like Oathkeepers help keep my hope for the future alive. Some have voiced the possibility of America being broken up into 2 or more pieces. In some respects it would be for the best. It is proven by history that once a government gets to big it destroys itself from the inside out. It would also give us who still hold the Constitution as the basis of our country the opportunity to weed out those who don’t want to work or want to share what they haven’t earned. No matter what happens or when remember the words of Moody from Harry Potter “Remember constant vigilance!!”
