Top Marine to Obama: Get in the Fight
.

It’s highly unusual for a high-ranking soldier, let alone a high-ranking Marine, to publicly question White House and Pentagon policy. Yet that’s exactly what four-star Gen. James Amos, Commandant of the Marine Corps, did yesterday in Washington.

Speaking at the Brookings Institute Tuesday, Amos said the Obama administration paved the way for the emergence of the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq (ISIS) by completely withdrawing American troops in 2011.

POLL: Did the foreign policy of Barack Obama leave Iraq open to invasion by the radical Muslims?

“I have a hard time believing that had we been there, and worked with the government, and worked with parliament, and worked with the minister of defense, the minister of interior, I don't think we'd be in the same shape we're in today,” Amos said.

Amos also blasted the White House for failing to live up to its obligations around the world.

Amos' retirement is imminent since this is the only foreign policy Obama has, punishing any military person who speaks against his asinine policies.

He'll be fired soon, then will be free to join the resistance.

Yes, he may be fired for speaking the truth and as we all know, the Liberal treasonous media supports anything this Muslim Marxist treasonous President does! Oh, you are racist just remember that!

amen..we need everybody we can get !!!

Wondeer how long before he is replaced and/or has an "untimely accident"! But I salute this Marine for his courage of conviction and speaking  out! Where are the rest of the 'high brass"? Why aren't they standing with him? Because they are too busy "kissing ass" to keep their positions!  USN-RET

I am also a Navy Veteran but have you not been keeping up with the news? Obama has removed many officers in our military so he can have the support he needs against our citizens! He has did this to over 300 high ranking officers! It seems this one finally got the message that Obama does not support honor or integrity, but the overthrow of our Constitutional rights. Obama wants a Muslim Marxist takeover and the Liberal Nazi media tells us speaking facts is racist!

Well this is a Great Marine ..  oorah .. I suppose Obama will now retire him .. "We the People" must retire Obama !

The only way Ovomit will retire, is when we the people will have to pick him up by his balls and physically remove him from office and throw him right on his goofy lookin head.

Can't pick him up by body parts he doesn't have!

His so called wife does!

He may have his retirement removed as he is an honorable American!

Hey General Amos,

you had better have your solder's start fighting back against this tyrant or there will be no Marine Corp left. The military needs to remove this President for treason and high crimes against America. Do the right thing General.

YUP: President Trump Signs Great And Beautiful Trump Border Wall During Tour In San Diego

Embedded video

President Donald Trump visited the San Diego border on Wednesday to show off a newly constructed portion of the wall after a fundraising trip in California.

“It’s an amazing project,” Trump said, pointing to the 30-foot high barrier constructed with steel and concrete, noting that it also went six feet underground.

“If you think you’re going to cut it with a blow torch, that doesn’t work, because you hit the concrete, and then if you think you’re going to go through the concrete, that doesn’t work because we have very powerful rebar inside,” Trump said.

The president traveled via motorcade after a fundraiser to Otay Mesa, a community outside San Diego on the United States -Mexico border to review the latest constructed physical barrier.

He pointed out the new wall structure to the press, which was 24 miles of primary and secondary wall at the border.

“We have it covered underground, we have it covered overground,” Trump said.

The president was joined by acting Department of Homeland security Kevin McAllen and several other border security officials.

He said that over 44,000 bollard panels had been set up for the wall, which was then filled with concrete and rebar.

Trump admitted that he envisioned a solid concrete wall when he campaigned for president, but he was told by border officials that they preferred a wall constructed by concrete-filled bollards so they could see through it.

“It’s hardened concrete, very powerful concrete,” Trump said, pointing to the structure.

He added that the steel wall was designed to retain heat, making it harder to climb, plus having an anti-climbing system at the top.

“You can fry an egg on that wall,” he said. The president also acknowledged to reporters that he wanted the wall to be painted black and have spikes but said it was cheaper to let it remain naturally rust-colored.

“We can paint it later,” he said.

The president discussed his growing understanding of border barriers, noting that the Southern border would not need much more than 500 miles of wall to secure the border. He cited the existence of natural mountain and river barriers that prevented criminals from crossing. He did not rule out building additional barriers in the future but said it would depend on whether it was needed.

One border patrol agent spoke about the importance of the border wall to all of the agents, thanking the president for pushing forward on construction.

Trump said he met with Border Patrol prior to constructing the wall, picking the most effective structures to protect the border.

One border security official scoffed at the idea that the wall was a “vanity” project for the president.

“There’s a false narrative out there that this wall is the president’s vanity wall,” he said. “I’m here to tell you right now that that is false.”

He thanked Trump for listening to border patrol agents during the planning and construction process.

“You listened to the agents and you gave them exactly what they asked for,” he said.

One official with Trump confirmed that the structure was funded with regular Congressional appropriations in the FY 2017 and FY 2018 and that that the new wall replaced an inferior structure.

Trump said that he still considered the situation on the border a national emergency, but as more wall went up he could withdraw military forces.

“I hope you’re impressed,” he told reporters as he took questions about the project.

One worker told Trump of a tradition of workers signing the wall if they worked on the wall.

“I’ll sign it,” Trump said, and went to the wall and signed the steel barrier with a marker before encouraging other officials present to do the same.
