    Default Renowned author: Obama wants military leaders who will fire on U.S. citizens

    On Monday, Dr. Jim Garrow, a renowned author and humanitarian who was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, sparked a firestorm of controversy when he wrote on Facebook that President Obama wants military leaders who will fire on U.S. citizens.

    In an exclusive interview with Examiner.com, Dr. Garrow said the man who told him this is a military hero who is known by everybody in the country.

    "I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new 'litmus test' in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks," he wrote.

    "The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not," the unnamed military officer reportedly said. Dr. Garrow also wrote that those who do not meet this litmus test are being removed.

    On Tuesday, Dr. Garrow said that officers who know about this cannot come forward without endangering themselves and facing possible retaliation from the administration.

    According to Dr. Garrow, the officer who made the allegation learned about the litmus test from the person who got him interested in military service. That person, Dr. Garrow added, was forced out for failing to meet the criteria.

    Dr. Garrow said he promised to keep the officer's name from the public, adding that he stands behind what he was told regardless of the consequences.

    "I would stake my full reputation on this gentleman," he said.

    "If people want to throw things at me, fine," he added, calling it "an honor" to come under fire for keeping his promise to the officer.

    Dr. Garrow told Examiner that there are people in the administration who are paid to "attack those who raise doubts" about anyone who criticizes the Obama administration.

    As numerous sites have mentioned, Dr. Garrow is no conspiracy theorist or "random crackpot on Facebook." Not only is he the author of "The Pink Pagoda: One Man’s Quest to End Gendercide in China," he is a highly-regarded human rights activist who has rescued thousands of young girls from certain death in China and currently owns over 250 schools in that country.

    Examiner's Dave Gibson said the shocking claim comes on the heels of a Washington Free Beacon report that says Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis will leave his post as Commanding General of Central Command in March, several months earlier than anticipated.

    The Free Beacon described his dismissal as a "bum's rush."

    A post at the blog Nice Deb reminds readers that a paper issued by a West Point think tank warns of so-called “far right” groups like the “anti-federalist” movement, that supports “civil activism, individual freedoms and self-government.”

    According to an article at the Washington Times, the report describes "anti-federalists" as those who "espouse strong convictions regarding the federal government, believing it to be corrupt and tyrannical, with a natural tendency to intrude on individuals’ civil and constitutional rights. Finally, they support civil activism, individual freedoms, and self government. Extremists in the anti-federalist movement direct most their violence against the federal government and its proxies in law enforcement.”

    Given today's political climate, that definition could encompass much of the Tea Party and those who espouse conservatism.

    Why not? The military is the one part of the government that works. Time to corrupt that too?

    Well, in a way it does make sense. With the direction this country is taking fiscally and socially how long will it be before there is some sort of uprising. Right now they are looking at gun restrictions, even all out banning of weapons. We're being taxed to death to help fund social programs that a majority of tax payers do not benefit from. Makes sense to want a military commander that will give the order to fire upon an organized militia set on over throwing the government.

    Inflammatory? I don't know where you guys have been, but they have already killed a US citizen with a drone strike.

    This isn't a "somewhere on the horizon" BS theory, it's already happened.

    It's not a conspiracy theory. It has already happened. You might want to stop being dismissive of anyone that criticizes the guy you vote for and pay attention to the news.

    Here's an article from that far right, conspiracy-loving Reuters news agency:

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/...79475C20111005

    Please, do yourself a favor and read it.

    Yeah because Obama has been such a great President and his policies are so transparent. He signed NDAA and resigned the Patriot act which liberals all love. He has killed Americans and many many innocent people with drones. He now wants to restrict gun rights. His track record for his actions are shit. There is no conspiracy theory these are reality. Your savior is no savior but a wolf in lamb's wool.

    If this was a Republican you would be up in arms over many of his actions but since a D follows his name it is great.

    Is it hard to believe he would do this? NO.
    Does he have the personality to do this type of thing? YES.
    He gets re-elected and now acts like an Emperor for the last two months. "Well if the congress won't do I will use Executive Order!"

    Oh yeah I forgot you can't protest him if the Secret Service are around or it is a criminal offense. So he has limited free speech too. And where does he go without Secret Service.
