Obama Makes No Promises Not to Kill Us

Posted on February 6, 2013 11:00 am

So the Obama White House has released a memo saying they can kill anyone they want with drones — even American citizens — without due process. And we don’t have to worry about this being abused because Obama won a Nobel Peace Prize for… existing or something. Still, if you don’t want to be blown up by a drone, I think you can fill out a form to the Justice Department or something and they’ll decide whether or not to put you on a kill list.

Furthermore, the Obama White House said that drone strikes are “legal,” “ethical,” and “wise.” They forgot to add “fun.”

So, should we be worried? So far Obama has only used his drone powers to kill really terroristy people; it’s not like he’s going to target us — not that, according to him, legally anything could stop him if he did. The crazy thing though is that the left went absolutely apoplectic about waterboarding — I remember once Jon Stewart acting like us pouring water on Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is going to be viewed by future generation as something as bad as slavery — and yet they seem rather muted over the whole “blow people up — including Americans — without due process” thing. And the thing is, while waterboarding had given us actionable intelligence, I don’t think blowing people up ever has.

Anyway, just further evidence that when the left act really outraged about something, ignore them because they’re just being silly and partisan. Maybe one day we’ll find something where the left will be equally outraged regardless of the political parties involved, but we already know that won’t be about racism, rape, or murder. And certainly not how we treat known terrorists.

    When people upset Obama, Mr. Bigglesworth gets upset. When Mr. Bigglesworth gets upset, PEOPLE DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Generally if the Americans in question have declared war on other Americans–hi, Anwar al-Awlaki!–I guess we’re all OK with it. But then, liberals have a way of expanding definitions.

    Rich people who move factories overseas are warring on Americans! DRONE STRIKE!
    People in New York who have guns that shoot more than six bullets are planning to war on Americans! DRONE STRIKE!
    Fat kids suck healthcare resources from other citizens…and couldn’t care less! DRONE STRIKE!

    It will only be a matter of time before an American citzen is killed by a drone in the United States. How long before it happens? I don’t know. Five to ten years. Maybe less.

    If you watch Ronald Reagan’s Documentary on COMMUNISM you will see what Obama is up to. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YVCjpbeLRs

    Pay close attention at the 10 min point (the Cult of personality) and at 26 min (the Blueprint for Communist Conquest). Obama’s CZAR’s, his appointments, his executive orders… There is literally NO difference between Obama and Joseph Stalin.

    I believe that the Left wants to create the conditions so an American Neo-Bolshevik Revolution is a certainty! And the Liberal News Mafia, Obama’s criminal partner has no problem playing its part. The only thing that can save us is the US Military at this point.

    Well, as soon as some of us start getting our own “drones” I’m wondering how fast we will hear that that’s not “legal”, “ethical” or “wise”.

    “He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to civil power.”
    “He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:”
    “For protecting them, by mock trial [or even just an executive memo], from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states:”
    “He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, . . .”

    — man, he is blowing through the Declaration of Independence like it was a to-do list!

    The way they see it, they wont have to worry about ever losing office so long as they can just steal the friggin election, count up a few hundred thousand votes in an inner city and BAM! we won this state no matter how red it is in reality.

    There’s a difference between election fraud and voter fraud – yeah we may not have much voter fraud, but election fraud is what got obama reelected, not any of this “oh enough people didnt come out to hate him” crap.

  9. Oppo says:

    Uncharacteristically, even the New York Times (yes, the New York Times; 2/5/13) is pushing back against Obama’s drone strike policy:

    “The first strike in Yemen ordered by the Obama administration, in December 2009, was by all accounts a disaster. American cruise missiles carrying cluster munitions killed dozens of civilians, including many women and children. Another strike, six months later, killed a popular deputy governor, inciting angry demonstrations and an attack that shut down a critical oil pipeline.

    . . . . .

    “In some cases, drones have killed members of Al Qaeda when it seemed that they might easily have been arrested or captured, according to a number of Yemeni officials and tribal figures. . . . ”

    “For sure, we could be going after some of these guys,” the officer said. “That’s what we’re trained to do, and the Americans trained us. It doesn’t make sense.”

    @2: You’re on a roll now. Nice job eliciting a chuckle.

    I had an interesting discussion on facebook about this last night. Surprisingly, two very conservative friends disagreed with me vehemently while a rediculously liberal friend was outraged and horrified that this sort of thing is being allowed.

    One of the dissenters is a 20 yr military vet who took my whole argument to be horribly anti-military. Going so far as to say that if it prevents one potential IED attack, they are fine in his book. (He’s a former submariner, so it’s not that he’s seen and IED attack firsthand or anything so no personal experience enters into this)

    Any thoughts on this here from military or veterans?

  12. Marc says:

    bullibrat, I am a Veteran. I was in Iraq from Feb. 2004 through Feb. 2005 and saw Preditor drones flying about. There is a big differeance between a military use by a commander in theater using drones to gather intelligence then act on that intelligence and the president using drones as his own personal hit-bot. IF there are well defined ROE (rules of engagment) it is one thing, to say we can “take out” anyone we deem a threat is another. Like FredKey mentions above the definition of threat can start to expand to a personal enemies list. “Punish those that oppose us” can take on a whole new meaning. Just look at the lawsuit against Standard and Poor’s. Make BO look bad, as if he needs help doing that, and pay the price.

  13. Marc says:

    Maybe, like in “Ender’s Game”, he just thinks it is a really cool version of Call of Duty and doesn’t really know he is killing people but probably not.

    If there is a required background check everytime you want to purchase a firearm shouldn’t there also be a required background check before ordering a drone strike?

    If I were Mitt Romney, I’d be adding Anti-Aircraft on top of my car elevator shaft.

  15. CTCompromise says:

    How long before Fox News is hit by a “rogue” drone? Any bets?

  16. CTCompromise says:

    …Maybe THAT’S how Obama shoots skeet!!!!!

  17. Dohtimes says:

    #4, that may be after but probably the first time a drone is hacked mid-flight and had it’s “mission” altered. Hacking would also be a good excuse in a coverup of an assassination or convenient friendly fire incident.

  18. plentyobailouts says:

    In the drone operations center, the young pilots noticed an old guy with bad plugs jumping up and down in the corner screaming and crying “Its my turn now”!

  19. Carpenter says:

    Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin both wanted Civilian National Security Forces separate from the Military (to protect the people). Uncle Jo Stalin has his Secret Police and the NKVD. Hitler had the SS, the Gestapo and the Hitler Youth.

    So this is whats gonna happens next.

    In the Name of National Security Hussein Obama will exercise his “Divine Right” of unchecked Presidential power to establish a Civilian National Security Force. And he will get away with it because, like his predecessors (sse above) he gives powerful speeches that hypnotize and mesmerize the eager masses who have come to worship him as a GOD.

    At some point in time posts like this one I am making right now will be suicide.

    #10 – alcohol does wonders for me

  21. CarolyntheMommy says:

    Hey 19 – you forgot already? Obama started that website sometime in 2009 where people could report others who were against the healthcare bill. Of course, that reporting is just so the administration could, “contact and educate those dissenters.”

  22. Tau Dades says:

    The real problem, here, is when the heck did memos become 16 pages? arent they supposed to be short and concise?

    Oh ya, govt bad, grrr!!!

  23. Writer says:

    Hey Bullibrat- his name wasn’t Moulitsas was it?

  24. seanmahair says:

    So we can believe obama because “he’s never lied to us before”. Right? I think I threw up in my mind just thinking that sentence. I’m not sure how long I’ll be here but I’m going to be fighting all the way. You know what they say about picking a fight with an old man…………..triple that for an old woman. I’ve had years of psycho war witch from Hades with an attitude training. The hormones may be gone but the psychosis never really leaves.
