Sean McElwee: “The U.S. military is a national security threat.”


Dudes and dudettes, this is an example of what leftist like Sean McElwee do when it comes to showing respect for Memorial Day, our military as well as our veterans past and present…it’s a crying ass shame via my viewfinder in life, see if it yours as well after you read this report:

True to the anti-American, anti-military hate that is central to the progressive vision, chose to honor our fallen heroes this Memorial Day weekend by warning that our own military is “a national security threat.”

In “The U.S. military is a national security threat,” Salon’s Sean McElwee argues that “America’s armed forces are a massive drain on resources that could otherwise strengthen the country”:

As the era of American hegemony winds down, it’s more important than ever for America to be able to demonstrate soft power. That means first, an American model that works, for other countries to emulate. But further, it means a highly educated population, long-term investment in infrastructure, adequate healthcare, an [sic] society based, above all else, on opportunity. However, it’s likely that the military budget precludes these important services.

By “American hegemony winds down,” he means the progressive agenda to dethrone America from its position as the world’s preeminent superpower. And who will happily take on that role? America’s enemies. And he neglects to mention that so-called “soft power” is pointless without hard power to back it up.

McElwee goes on to blame military expenditure for everything from American women dying in childbirth to police killings (by which he means, of course, police killing suspects; surely you weren’t expecting Salon to post an article critical of suspects killing police?). As an example of the government services our military is denying us, he notes that “just two years funding for the massive, $1.5 trillion F-35 fighter jet could fund free community college for all students for a decade.”

No one is happier about this article than America’s enemies abroad, who understand exactly what “soft power” means: impotence.


What say you about all this? – Do you have a message for Sean McElee, and if so what would it be?

Toss in your two-cents…Fire Away – Inquiring Minds Want to Know!

    • abama…

      Thank you for that great post…and thank you for serving, as well as many in your family.

      Eternal gratitude.

    • Hi Buddy, Baby sleeping. Heard from my Son. All ok. This article has me fuming! WTF is going on??? This POS president and his American hating group are destroying our country. Meanwhile the Repubics do NOTHING! START THE REVOLUTION NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Chump Change

    Even broken clocks…

    • Yeah and so where are you going with that?

      • Nostradumbass

        Look at that post, BT!!

        1. No scare quotes
        2. No TM bullsh!t
        3. No relationship to this thread or post.

        Give this guy a year or two and he will actually be able to converse with someone other than the voices in his head.

        • That’s a big ‘maybe’ when it comes to your last line.

          I tell ya Nostra, I for the life of me don’t understand why I bother to reply to him. He’s so off the wall that it’s beyond me.

          Sure glad to see you here today, I thought about you after I replied to him and his nutcase post.

  3. I’m sure that “soft power” approach worked very well in the King Arthur tale of Camelot, but in reality, soft power doesn’t work for its a world of conflict and it will never change.

    One other thing – I’m getting so SICK of this liberal bullshit that universal collage education and total unheeded acceptance of pure secular theology will bring about global peace. Just had to get that out of the way! 😛

    Back to the topic at hand…

    You know what, far as I’m concerned, let them live that lie while the rest of us break off. Let them find out the hard way as nations of domination and iron will come in and break them with everything from inhuman acts of cruelty and even enslavement!

    I’ll admit, the idea of a peaceful globalized utopia free of military conflict and war is a beautiful dream and one I wish that was true. I also like the one where I’m a dragon rider and own a black wing sky terror dragon, the dragon also talks and shares my love for history. Dreams are dream sadly and best left in story books, movies and video games.

    Honestly, we’ve already seen the results of “soft power” in Obama’s Obamanation and guess what? The rest of the world thinks we’re a bunch of, I’m sorry to say, a bunch of weak willed pussies. We have absolutely NO respect whatsoever, heck, Canada has more respect then us and what dose that tell you?

    Google world leader Memes and you will find pictures of Putin riding on a bear, looking very commando, tough and intimidating. Next you will see Kim of Korea looking like a superhero, a dragon ball Z badass and even defied as the new Buddha. Last we will see our beloved Obama, riding on a My Little Pony through fields of jelly beans and gummy bears. That’s our nations leader and representative…


    • Wolfie…

      Excellent post…you hit every single nail directly on the head.

      Btw…look at the shambles BHO has purposely caused the middle east to be in at this time, most likely to get far worse before his reign is done.

      One more thing I am sick to death of liberals demanding all things be free of charge to them…I’m specifically talking about college to be free of cost.

      Where the hell do they think the money would come from and just whom do they think pays for all this?

    This guy doesn’t get it.
    We are going to have to deal with the Liberal left and Inner city punks the same way we are eventually going to have to deal with ISIS.

    Both organizations have no respect for human life. Both hide behind (Take advantage of) laws protecting them and the ugly word “political correctness”. The Terrorist in ISIS hide behing women and children, behind schools and hospitals. So be it, we need to go after them with known collateral damage, keeping our eye on the ball, total elimination of armed insurgents.

    As for the terrorist in our inner cities (Black Youths and liberals like this guy) we need to stop the protection politics, face up to their racists rants and fingerpointing, and tackle them fiercely as well. Arrest them, put them in jail and if they resist, use deadly force, like we were supposed to be doing all along, even if they are minorities, they are still supposed to be held accountable, no more double standard (Whites would never be able to get away with this.

    If we do not do this soon, we will never improve our world. We know the problem, know the perpetrators, now lets fix this. These animals only know 1 way of doing things, with violent force and intimidation. They can only be overcome by thier own tactics, superior force and no politics. That will stop it and correct these out of control situations. Until that happens, more of the same will keep taking place.

    I am a Marine for life, a combat veteran, this is how it is done when the sh*t hits the fan. This is what we marines do. We did it in New Orleans during Katrina, we did it in Fallujah (Before obama gave it back) and we now need to do it at home.

    Semper Fi

    • I second all you said…works for me, needs to be done ASAP.

      Thanks for your service Okinawa Marine.

    • Thank you for your service!!

    • OhioVietVet

      I’ll stand with you Okinawa Marine!! Everything you said hits the nail right on the head. I’m sick to death of their BS to. Don’t think Salon and their merry band of libtards would saddle up and put their a$$ on the line.

  5. Spurwing Plover

    Another 70’s hippy freaktard in the making a typical brain-dead liberal and probibly supports open borders at the same time This jerk needs to have his loose screws tightened

  6. Liberals did it ever occur to you that the (almost) the rest of the world want your butt on the sharp end of a stick. Europe is gone, Islamised, you do not have to listen to, too many, Imam speeches to know that they are there in sufficient numbers and they are not going to fall in with western culture nor values. SHARIA, WE FKIN WANT SHARIA, and, they will get sharia. The problem is your behind will also fall in with Sharia, or it will go to ground, without a head. If you are too blind to see this, there truly is no hope. Hiding behind political correctness Islam is slowly infiltrating the western world. The good Muslim countries (allies) is alienated by the current regime in the US. Meanwhile Russia and China is silently watching, getting bolder by the day, SPENDING billions upon billions on military. Countries like India and Pakistan stands on the verge of being controlled by Muslims, (the bad kind, the Isis and Al Quaida kind). Those countries have nukes, and their upcoming leaders hates you. If the US shows weakness it’s enemies will come for it. That includes Russia and China, also North Korea. To all feminist’s and Gay’s, … are going to have a hard time in the new world, none of the potential new rulers have a good track record on human rights. I’m just joking, let us make a drum circle and send these people flowers.

  7. Sean,,my message to you,,is to ,,,,SUCK IT !!
    Your the type I would of used as bait when cleaning out the tunnels in Viet-Nam.

  8. “America’s armed forces are a massive drain on resources that could otherwise strengthen the country”

    That is a factually untrue statement and author Sean McElwee is both a fool and a liar and, he may also be a traitor. Over the last six years Obama has been a massive drain on resources and has done everything to drain the strength OUT of America. Anyone who advocates ‘soft power’ as an antidote to ISIS and Iran is either in denial and a fool or, a treasonous liar with a malicious agenda. Much like BO himself.

    Meanwhile our enemies make mines (banned by Lefty nutcases), carry 50 year old machine guns, and simple rocket propelled grenades into civilian populations, and we prosecute the heroes for going out and killing the enemy during a shooting war.

    Yup.. the lies just keep coming… and the dupes keep believing them.

  9. US pilots speak out…and it ain’t pretty via BHO’s orders…
