ICYMI: Obama Urges Soldiers to Question Trump’s Authority, ‘Criticize Our President’

Breitbart: In his final address to America’s armed forces, President Barack Obama reminded troops that once Donald J. Trump becomes president, soldiers have a duty to question his authority and criticize him. Obama also said the Second Amendment and global warming can be blamed for terrorism.

Obama stood before soldiers at MacDill Air Force Base, in Tampa, Florida on Tuesday, December 6, to talk about “the foundation that we will leave for the next administration,” CNSNews.com reported.

Characterizing the military’s mission as a fight against “violent extremism,” Obama insisted that soldiers need to rise up against Trump if they feel he is pushing policies that are ill considered.

Obama told the troops, “each of us has…the universal right to speak your minds and to protest against authority; to live in a society that’s open and free; that can criticize our president without retribution.”

  1. I don’t recall hearing this “duty to question Presidential authority and criticize” line even once in the last eight years. Anyway, good luck with that to anyone stupid enough to take it seriously.

    What part of “…and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me” did he not understand?

    Oh, that’s right – he never took that oath.

    Never mind.

  2. A sitting ‘president’ encouraging the military to disobey their solemn oath.
    This guy is worse and bolder than even Trump thought.
    “each of us has…the universal right to speak your minds and to protest against authority; to live in a society that’s open and free; that can criticize our president without retribution.”
    Try that while you’re in uniform boys.

  3. Let’s see how many knowledgeable and experienced senior enlisted and Officers have been drummed out of the military for criticizing Obama’s failed military strategy, rules of engagement, creating upheaval in the middle east, supporting and arming terrorists and depleting our military strength?

    Obama remains the enemy from within and will continue that role after he leaves the white house.
    Once a traitor always a traitor.

  4. Six more weeks from today and barry and John effin Kerry and all their malicious ilk are gone for good. And the big boys and real men take over our country once again. Let’s hope the first thing Trump and his and new Sec. of Defense do is put an end to all the social engineering in the military.

  5. If he was a Mohhamedan or a hardcore Marxist bent on weakening the nation…

    …would he do or say anything differently?

  6. Why is no one calling Barky on this? He’s calling for violation of UCMJ Article 88. That’s a court martial offense:

    10. Punitive Articles
    Any commissioned officer who uses contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Transportation, or the Governor or legislature of any State, Territory, Commonwealth, or possession in which he is on duty or present shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.

  7. This is the same asshat that has repeatedly shit canned flag officers for not bowing to his whim telling military personnel to question the authority and rebel against the Commander in Chief……
    That almost sounds treasonous. Current Commander in Chief telling the military to mutiny against the next Commander in Chief

    (a) Any person subject to this chapter who–

    (1) with intent to usurp or override lawful military authority, refuses, in concert with any other person, to obey orders or otherwise do his duty or creates any violence or disturbance is guilty of mutiny;

    (2) with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of lawful civil authority, creates, in concert with any other person, revolt, violence, or disturbance against that authority is guilty of sedition;

    (3) fails to do his utmost to prevent and suppress a mutiny or sedition being committed in his presence, or fails to take all reasonable means to inform his superior commissioned officer or commanding officer of a mutiny or sedition which he knows or has reason to believe is taking place, is guilty of a failure to suppress or report a mutiny or sedition.

    (b) A person who is found guilty of attempted mutiny, mutiny, sedition, or failure to suppress or report a mutiny or sedition shall be punished by death or such other punishment as a court- martial may direct.

  9. I remember when Nixon dropped by Loring AFB. Soldiers were rounded up to greet him and were told to bring their families. They were also instructed to cheer and absolutely no unruly or unresponsive personnel! And they were reminded it would be television covered. (In other words, you’ll be watched!).

    I heard that the soldiers clapping was scarce. I guarantee that the military are holding their tongues in joy, now that the self-aggrandizing
    Solipsistic Obama is fading to obscurity.

    My favorite cartoon re Obama’s popularity with the military boarding the new invisible AF ONE.


  10. what an incompetent, unaccomplished, unqualified, Lying POS Obozo was and is………….The Obozo life form couldn’t fill a pus pimple on a good President’s azz!

  11. Early onset senility. This coming from a president that fired hundreds of military for not getting on the band wagon with him and his Middle East decisions. What a fucking retard. 40 more days of this ass in power is WAY to many.

  12. He needs a military 21 gun salute while standing in front of a wall wearing a blindfold.

    This POS will be eligible for burial in Arlington when he dies. He will defile the whole place.

  13. If it weren’t for fake news, Obama wouldn’t have a damn thing to brag about himself. He’s spreading his fake legacy like a farmer spreads fertilizer, before rain, but the fertilizer smells a hell of a lot better.

  14. Ask Lt. Col. Lakin who said Barry lacked the authority to send him overseas. He was arrested, given a kangaroo trial, sent to prison and dishonorably discharged.

  15. How many ways had this rat turd absolutely BEGGED to be Impeached
    and humiliated and yet
    the castrati of the GOP and Congress just lay there like bloated dead animals ?!

  16. Very educational, and satisfying, reading what the vets are writing here.
    I don’t know what the Choom Dude is smoking. Would only that it were instrumental in bringing on pernicious anemia.

  17. Unfortunately Obama and his staff won’t be gone after six more weeks. He will just be out of office but continue to encourage chaos via lack of respect of legal authority. He saw the success he had preaching disrespect for LEOs. We’ve seen the tradegies that has caused.

    Now he expanding the same idea to disrespect military leadership, including the incoming CIC. Hoping to create the same results – dead cops to dead military leaders.

    I can only hope that if he keeps pushing these dangerous ideas the public in increasing numbers will wake up turn on him and demand Trump do what the Senate should have done seven years ago and out him in the big house for treason.

  18. One of the things Trump needs to do, early on, is to purge the officer corps of the treasonous lunatics Obama replaced the actual Americans with.

  19. Once a community agitator, always a community agitator. He never respected the honor of being president of the United States. Obama has been treasonous from the moment he took the oath of office his first term. He’s not facing any serious congressional opposition to his marxist, jihadist, anti-American dotrines so he feels more than comfortable encouraging our military to commit treason.

  20. I have never been keen taking orders from idiots. I have been demoted from management positions for questioning those above me as I walked out of the conference room. stupid people upset me and I will not work for them-president or not…

  21. Now that that little poison pill operation is complete, it’s time to move on to the next pre-inaugural chore.

    Let the pardonings begin…!
