President Obama hand picked General James Amos to be the Marine Corps Commandant, his first appointment to the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Now General Amos is not playing along with the President as he attempts to satisfy homosexual activists who helped elect him.
Amos is telling the truth. And he's telling it like it is. And he is opposing the repeal of "don't ask-don't tell".
He says, "There is nothing more intimate than young men and young women---laying out, sleeping alongside of one another and sharing death, fear and loss of brothers. I don't know what the effect of that will be on cohesion. I mean, that's what we're looking at. It's unit cohesion, it's combat effectiveness."
The President seems to be more intent on pacifying his homosexual supporters, then combat effectiveness.
Are we now wanting to use our military, as we do public education, as a social experiment?
Homosexual activists who helped elect the President have been angered that he has not acted quickly enough or done enough for them. The repeal of "don't ask-don't tell" seems to be President Obama's best attempt on their behalf.
However, much has changed and the 2011 Congress will be quite different than the 2010 class.
A Rasmussen survey out yesterday found that 56% say they think Congress should wait until newly elected members take office after the first of the year to take on any major legislation.
But 76% think they won't do it. Two-thirds of Americans think Team Obama, Pelosi and Reid will attempt to cram through major legislation, including the bill that contains the repeal.
I wonder what would cause people to think that?
Congress resumes Monday.
I expect the report on "don't ask don't tell," which is due by December 1, to find there will be no negative effect resulting from open homosexual behavior in the military. The Obama team will then attempt to ram through the 2011 defense and budget bill---in which they chose to insert the repeal, with no discussion or review of the report.
John McCain, who knows something about military combat, says he will mount a filibuster if Reid tries to bring up repeal.
The Republicans who oppose the repeal are already being accused of "favoring discrimination."
Anyone who does not embrace and celebrate homosexual behavior or even merely defends natural marriage and family or advocates biblical morality, is automatically tagged as intolerant, bigoted, hateful and in the way.
While Washington State did not embrace commonsense, as most of the country did in this past election, the new Congress will be more linked to the historical values and principles that has caused America to become the exceptional nation that it is.
May God continue to help and bless us.
Be Prayerful. Be Vigilant. Be Active. Be Blessed.
