Now I’ve Heard Everything

Hey, those guys from Al Jazeera were right! Obama really is crazy–and so is everyone that works for him.

Under our–ahem!–president, the Pentagon has ordered commanders to “prioritize climate change” in all military operations of any kind ( http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/feb/7/pentagon-orders-commanders-to-prioritize-climate-c/ ). The order requires commanders to “incorporate Climate Change impacts into plans and operations,” which is supposed to empower the U.S. military to “beat back the threat” of Global Warming/Climate Change.

What does any of this mean?

Why does it leave me with an image of a headline, “June 6, 2016: D-Day! Today, after 72 years of calculating the invasion of Europe’s impact on Climate Change, General Dwight D. Eisenhower ordered the operation to proceed–which it surely would have done, if he and almost all his men hadn’t already died of old age some years ago”? Sorry, Europe, but it just takes so blamed long to figure out all the angles of this Global Warming stuff…

Bunker Hill, 2016: “Don’t fire until you can see the whites of their eyes! And not until after you’ve worked out all the Climate Change impacts of each bullet fired…”

Is our nation really expected to survive such… leadership? I see defensive positions being overrun and the men hacked to pieces while some overburdened second lieutenant tries to figure out what his orders mean. “Do we fight or do we run away? Shoot or not shoot? Man, I don’t wanna get court-martialed because I didn’t prioritize the Climate Change!”

Inertia will keep us alive a little longer. But you  can’t be crazy forever. Sooner or later it’ll catch up with you. And it’s gonna be a bad day when it does.

    All the elitists (which includes our usurper-in-chief) remind me of mad scientists (remember ‘Pinky and the Brain’?) – wild hair, bulging eyes, insane ravings. The infuriating thing is that they know exactly what they’re doing and it’s intentional. But God is in control and He is the maestro of all. Come Lord Jesus!

    The last two paragraphs are spot on. The short answer is no, we can’t survive like this. The West is in the death grip of a destructive ideology that so warps their thinking they literally have lost touch with reality. Talk about a strong delusion. This wont end well at all.

    I guess this is what you get when you have a ninnyhammer who’s probably never held a gun in his hands in his life trying to direct smart people who have actually been in combat and know what they’re doing. He’s not a leader, by any stretch of the imagination. He’s just a community organizer who got promoted to community organizer-in-chief.

    This has got to be in the top five craziest things I’ve heard come out of the Obama White House. Hopefully, the commanders at the Pentagon give this lip service and step up the bombing of ISIS.
