Obama Desecrating the US Military’s Sacred POW Code of Conduct

Forty years ago, President Nixon finally succeeded in having Secretary of State Henry Kissinger complete the negotiation for the repatriation of the Vietnam POWs from North Vietnam. On the weekend of May 23rd, for the last time, the surviving Vietnam POW’s solemnly celebrated the 40th anniversary of their release, at the Nixon Presidential Library.

If you have ever read any of the many books published, articles printed in newspapers, or read interviews given by Vietnam POW’s, you will understand that the common thread that helped get them through their very difficult period of captivity was their faith in God, their religious worship away from the eyes of their captors, and the support the Prisoner of War Code of Conduct that was inculcated in them.

Here’s how the Prisoner of War Code of Conduct, Article VI, reads:


“I will never forget that I am an American, fighting for freedom, responsible for my actions, and dedicated to the principles which made my country free. I will trust in my God and in the United States of America.”

The US military tries to instill the Code of Conduct in all US military personnel to remind them of their “character and heritage,” and in order to emphasize to them that as American fighting men and women they have inner strengths to rely on, in face of the mental and physical abuses they will have to endure if they are ever captured. “Character” was emphasized in American’s youth at home each day by parents, by teachers in both public and parochial schools, by the leaders and coaches of the various organizations they belonged (such as the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, YMCA, YWCA, 4H, athletics, etc.), by religious leaders in the churches/synagogues they attended, by service academies where they were instilled with the Honor System/Honor Code and love of country, by boot camp where military indoctrination emphasized the service branch heritage and love of country, and by military leadership training programs for officer and noncoms.

While Character was being instilled in most Americans by these means, Barack Obama’s character was developed, as he relates in his book “Dreams,” every day after school in Hawaii, by his mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, the Secretary of the Communist Party USA. He previously went to school in Indonesia where American values weren’t taught, went on to Columbia under the name of Barry Soetoro, where his character was further developed by his two roommates who took him to Pakistan in the 1980’s to be indoctrinated in a philosophy that was not typically American.

Obama’s unvarnished “Character” is different from that of most of the US military personnel, most of whom were born and bred in America, and the true color of his “Character” has been revealed by his actions over the last four years. Most intelligent and forthright Americans realize that he has never said he loves this country or praised the heritage of the Republic; his actions speak louder than words.

By his actions (look at what he has done, not what he says), Obama has demonstrated that he doesn’t support the US Military Code of Conduct which instills in the American fighting man and women their faith in God and their love of the heritage of the United States of America. The Code of Conduct was developed to give US Prisoners of War (POW) the inner strength to believe in something bigger than themselves, even when they were being tortured or mentally abused by his captors (even after resisting, they may have been broken by such severe torture, but their love of country survived).

Instead of emphasizing the concepts of the US Military Code of Conduct to strengthen the faith of US military personnel, the Obama administration has been emphasizing Obama’s Social Experiment on Diversity, and has been forcing his radical Social Experiment on Diversity into regulations of the captive US military that must follow those regulations and policy directives issued by Obama’s civilian appointees at DoD. Those radical policies are damaging the Combat Effectiveness of the US Armed Forces.

Please review 15 of Obama’s policies or directives, listed below, that are overtly hostile toward Christians in the US Armed Forces. For four years the Obama administration has been trying to eliminate the influence of Christianity in the US Armed Forces, concepts that were first instilled in the US military culture by General George Washington in 1776, and it has given US military personnel the inner strength that sustained them in combat and in captivity.

Just before a combat operation, military personnel flock to the Chaplains for their blessing, or meditate quietly in their own solitude; when they become Prisoners of War, they lean on their faith and the Code of Conduct to give them strength. Obama’s Social Experiment on Diversity, outlined in new regulations, has been forced upon members of the US Armed Forces, military chaplains, and the civil service employees that support the US military programs. They have attempted to diminish the fundamental Judeo/Christian concepts that have been the foundation upon which the US Armed Forces was built to strengthen it for 238 years.
__________________________________________________

Aggressive anti-Christian actions by the Obama Administration are real, documented, and are escalating:

1. January 2010 — Department of Defense orders removal of tiny Bible references on military scopes and gun sights.

2. June 2011 — The Department of Veterans Affairs forbids references to God and Jesus during burials at National Cemetery.

3. August 2011 — The Air Force stops teaching the Just War theory because it is based on a philosophy of St. Augustine.

4. September 2011 — Air Force Chief of Staff prohibits commanders from notifying airmen of religious programs.

5. September 2011 — The Army issues guidelines to Walter Reed Medical Center stipulating that no religious items (i.e. Bibles, reading materials) are to be given to the wounded.

6. November 2011 — The Air Force Academy rescinds support for Operation Christmas Child because it is run by Christians.

7. November 2011 — The Air Force Academy pays $80,000 for a Stonehenge-type worship center for pagans, druids, and witches.

8. February 2012 — The U.S. Military Academy disinvites decorated war hero LTG William “Jerry” Boykin, USA (Ret), and FRC Executive VP, because he is an outspoken Christian.

9. February 2012 — Army orders Catholic chaplains not to read archbishop’s letter from pulpit (Pilgrims fled England because they were prevented from free speech from pulpit)

10. May 2012 — Obama administration opposes legislation to protect the rights of conscience for military chaplains who do not wish to perform same-sex “marriages.”

11. June 2012 — Obama administration revokes the long-standing U.S. policy of allowing military service emblems to be placed on military Bibles.

12. August 2012 — Lt. Col. Jack Rich, USA e-mails subordinates saying they should be on the lookout for people who share FRC’s values because they are not “Army Values.”

13. January 2013 — Obama announces his opposition to a provision in the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act protecting the rights of conscience for military chaplains.

14. April 2013 — Officials briefing for U.S. Army Reservists states examples of “religious extremism” includes “Evangelical Christianity”, “Catholicism”, and “Islamic Jihadist Terrorism” in organizations like Al-Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, and Hamas.

15. May 2013 — The Pentagon meets with Mikey Weinstein and the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) who is trying to establish new rules which would restrict the religious freedom of Christian and Jewish military personnel (they shouldn’t have even given such a radical anti-Christian an audience).

On November 5, 2009 at Fort Hood, a devout Muslim, Maj Nidal Malik Hasan, USA (A. K. A. “Abu Wali”), who had been communicating with Al Qaeda terrorist cleric, Anwar Al-Awlaki, in a series of 20 E-mails, shouted at the top of his lungs, “Allah Akbar”, and used two hand guns to kill 12 US military personnel, while wounding 31 US military and law enforcement personnel. It was a radical Islamic terrorist attack against American Christian military personnel executed on a US military base; Al Qaeda spokesman, Adam Gadahn, praised “Abu Wali” as a Mujahid Brother. The Obama administration through its spokesman, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, insisted it was not terrorism at all, but work place violence. The US military personnel who were killed and wounded that day, should have been awarded the Purple Heart Medal for coming under a military assault by a Islamic Terrorist and traitor. An attempt has been made for nearly 4 years to cover up this Islamic Terrorist assault perpetrated on US soil (like the failed Terrorist attacks on US soil including the failed bombing in Times Square, the Terrorist bombing at the Boston marathon, and the Al Qaeda Terrorist attack on US soil/the US Mission in Benghazi that killed 2 Navy SEAL’s). We will not remain compliant for another of the Obama administration’s cover ups; we will endeavor to continue to bring that Terrorist attack to the attention of the American people until those murdered and wounded US military personnel receive the Purple Heart Medals they so rightly deserve.

    I have a perfect solution, sent Obama to north Korea, no secret service, no air force one, put a chute on his sorry ass, eject him over the north, put a sign on him, please keep, do not return, you may water board, pull his nails, electcute him, anything you wish, he is yours to do what you may. Record for evidense, sooner otr larger he will call out to god, please save me. Please put it on YouTube, but please keep him, we don’t want him back.

    • Barbaree

      Perfect!!!

        Put a chute on his sorry ass?

        You are far kinder than me, sir.

    • Best idea yet.

    • Linda

      You made my day !!

  • This is really another assault on religion. Obama will replace it all references to God and religion with allah and muslim .

  • harrycobalt

    have you noticed Obama doesn’t give speeches on religious holidays like Easter and Christmas to praise Christians but never misses the opportunity to praise Muslims on their holidays

    • Robt Hauser

      Yes, that is true and yes, it is very noticeable—by design and intent. Now ask yourself, if Obama had any intent whatsoever to completely sell this country out to Islam—which flatly condemns and outlaws the crime of USURY, by the way—then why are Obama’s most rubber lunged supporters and agenda pushers such as for gun control, all jewish….like Chuck Shumer, Diane Swineslime, Mike Bloomberg and the rest?…and why, just recently, did Lloyd Blankfine of Goldman-Sucks openly and proudly gloat that Obama is the first jewish prez? Can you say “reverse psychology”? The truth is that Ovomit is selling this country out to AIPAC and israel the same as every other dreckster we have been cursed with in the White House since at least as far back as 1913….the jewish controlled “federal reserve bank” still runs this country with an iron fist flatly regardless of the chocolate messiah’s theatrical overtures to Islam. America is no just one great big and bald-faced LIE right after another.

          Even one of your demoncrats, Woodrow Wilson, decried having signed legislation on Dec 23, 1913 creating the Fed Reserve.

          “I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a
          government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”

          100 years hence Wilson’s words ring prophetic.

        Revelation 2:9

        I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

        Revelation 3:9

        Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan,
        which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make
        them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved
        thee.
        The offspring of Cain, the Kenites, who use the Talmud and not the Torah; Follow the money; they are not of the ‘tribe of Judah’ but are those who claim to be Jews. The Nation of Israel is inhabited by both Kenites and true Judaens. This was all foretold; If you study you will learn; the Scribes and Pharisees that shouted ‘crucify Him’ were also Kenites and not our brother Judah!

      Because he is Muslim, therefore abhors all Christians and Jews especially white American Christians!

      • Obama doesn’t think much of Black American Christians either.

        • Sandra Lee Smith

          No; he doesn’t; he pretty much hates everyone, in truth, because he really doesn’t like himself. But Christians of any stripe or Jews are “mortal enemies” in the minds of all Muslims. probably going back to Abraham’s dealings with Ishmael.

      Nor does he render any sort of salute (hand over heart, etc.) when the national anthem is played. He just stands there, arms at his side, with a blank look on his face which all things considered is a natural pose for someone of his rather low brow and anti-American background.

  • mrbp

    The main problem is the youth of today who are old enough to vote and the education system. They are the most un-informed bunch of ignorants ever. Unless their parents wake up to what is happening in this country, they will end up being good little comrades of obama’s and his minions. That would be the entire executive branch, and a large portion of the congress and the judicial branch as well. Picking old joe as his vp was no accident. He knew biden was as dumb as a box of rocks and would go along to get along.

    • Robt Hauser

      The youth of America, especially the White kids, are the most classic illustration of why the phrase “young, dumb and full of come” was coined ages ago—-the dumbing down of the American youth began in earnest in 1914 long before the term caught on and became house-hold in the late ’80s…the parents of today are every bit as cranially evacuated as their brat kids and as far as can reasonably be seen, it is too late for this country now and there is no hope except from outside …if indeed any at all.

      • jetstream

        Yes, a majority of the youth today are vacuous, and a good deal of the blame lies with their parents who have sheltered them from any useful knowledge of the world while over-indulging them and racing them from event to event to ensure they are ‘popular’ with their friends and qualify for the sports scholarships. But the root cause reverts to the baby boomers (the teens of the ’60s), who raised this generation of parents with over-permissiveness and too little discipline. We are reaping the bitter results of short-sightedness, inattention, and misguided ‘love’ of our children.

  • Robert hauser

    Religions are regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by rulers as useful —Seneca.

    Religions are, like governments, largely if not entirely, instruments of plunder and oppression and I would flatly refute John’s thesis that America was founded upon “judeo-christian” principles…that is utter bravo sierra…in the first place, the word “judeo-christian” is the ultimate oxymoron as would be instantly recognized by anyone the least bit familiar with both the talmud and the so called “new testament”. One of America’s greatest Founders, Thomas Paine penned a brilliant essay, THE AGE OF REASON, wherein he openly and equally condemned both judaism and christinsanity as machines of oppression. Which they have of course been repeatedly demonstrated to have been throughout history as opposed to American popular twistory. In the Dark Ages you got molten lead poured down your throat if you didn’t blindly accept the “teachings” of christinsanity. This in no way proves or should even raise the suspicion that Paine was an atheist.

    Make no mistake about this…I solemnly hate Obama’s rotten guts for what he has done to this country, but I also have sense enough to realize that the Code of Conduct, as originally handed down by Eisenhower, who, far from being any kind of “brilliant strategist” or “war hero” was none too cerebral either—he graduated eighth from the bottom from the Point—and was criminally responsible for Operation Keelhaul and the murder to 2.3 million German POWs by starvation in flat violation of Geneva. Eisenhower’s Code of Conduct didn’t do jack squat in Vietnam either inside or outside of the Hanoi Hilton.

    Once you are behind the walls or barbed wire of an enemy prison camp—-especially one far removed from the front lines where you were captured, all the religion from here to the far side of Hell isn’t going to save your ass from the sophisticated and highly techie menticide they have at their command today—just ask any victim of the CIA’s mind “control” (kill) experiments which were conceived of and motivated by the exact same kind of sociopathic derangement as existed behind the Iron Curtain.

  • RonMar

    The son-of-a-bitch spawn of a Marxist loving, Marxist and Islamist-marrying slutty momma must be removed from office along with all of his handlers and the henchmen and women in his oppressive, tyrannical, despotic, evil Marxist-Islamic regime as quickly as possible, hopefully by legal means.
    Those means include resisting him on everything he and they try to do that damages the USA, us, visitors to the US, and by extension, the world.
    The means, provided for in the US Constitution include impeaching him in the House of Representatives and forwarding the impeachment to the Senate for its action, and if Obama, his handlers, henchmen and women force us to it armed resistance, withdrawal from the Union by States and revolution.
    First essential steps for all of us are to hold onto the majority in the House of Representative and to gain the majority in the US Senate. Then he and his cohorts in crimes and warfare against the US and all of us can be impeached, tried, convicted and punished appropriately to the maximum extent of the law.
    I respectfully request any and all of you who care about the USA, the US Constitution and defending its provisions of freedoms and rights in pursuit of liberty, justice for all, peace and happiness join in the political effort to get Obama and his out of office ASAP.
    Any opposed to my request including giving a down mark to this post self-identify as an enemy of the US, our Constitution and us as free men, women and children, loyal citizens of the United States of America.

  • Barry_Suxx

    Proof that barry is definitely an anti-Christ. He’s not happy with just owning your Life; he demands to own your Eternal Soul as well.

  • Obama, as has been documented above, has violated his oath of office numerous times to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” “against all enemies both foreign and domestic.” There is a huge amount of evidence that he is not “a natural born Citizen.” That very fact if proven true, since Obama arrogantly & willingly continued, knowing he was ineligable, should convict him of treason.

    Obama’s
    —disdain for our military and armed forces,
    —his willful refusal to uphold Constitutional law,
    —his contemptuous and scornful attitude to protocol and even polite & professional mannerisms accorded to those in positions of authority and leadership in Congress and the U.S. military,
    —his imperious disregard for military code (ie. Marines holding umbrellas, among other things),
    —his insulting and rude treatment of long standing foreign friends and allies, such as Israel and Great Britain,
    is reprehensible and unacceptable. Obama has disgraced and shamed our nation, our people and the office of the president.

    Obama’s actions and involvement in Fast & Furious, Benghazi, IRS impropriety and overreach, which to all three of these scandals, seems to grow more pronounced with each hearing and testimony, along with his mishandling of the Fort Hood Massacre and the Boston Marathon bombing, would indicate that Obama is guilty of treason and maybe even High Treason. Some of his Cabinet, including Clinton, Holder, and others may be proven to be guilty of these same charges.

    If there is any honor, integrity, or honesty left in America, Obama MUST be held accountable, impeached, indicted, charged with High Treason, and sentenced to the severest form of penalty allowed according to the law. That penalty could include freezing all his assets, deportation, and exile.

    The question remains: Will Americans have the courage, fortitude, and determination to do what is just, honorable and right? Or will they portray the meaning of Walt Kelly’s famous quote, “We have met the enemy… and he is us” ?

  • My fellow Americans, the time to fire obama has come and passed. It is time to group, put the word to an errant congress that WE, THE PEOPLE, have spoken. It is time to take this evil muslim madman out of our formerly revered office so we can begin a process of rebuilding our country. This man is not an American and cannot occupy the office our good-for-nothing congress has allowed to be elected twice now. What the hell would be next…the unprecedented illegal 3rd term being touted? It’s been far too long and he has already taken down much of our operating country, minimizing our army while arming a civil militia to exactly what…I’ll tell you dummies: TO DO HIS BIDDING. You don’t want this for yourself or your family no matter how worthless you are and what you do or don’t have. Or are we going to wait until we’re all in the prison camps he’s been preparing for us?

  • Bill from Laos

    Obama is a wimp, a non-experienced jerk, who never heard a shot fired in anger, never felt a loyalty to ANYTHING except to himself, and HE is trying to tell our magnificent men and women in uniform how they must behave if they become POW? Damn this excuse of a man – the sooner we take him down and imprison his ass, the better for America!

    He said it during his campaign when asked what he would do if he lost. He commented that he would spend the time with his Muslim brothers. Yet, the idiots in this country still elected him president. They now deserve what they asked for. The sad part is that the rest of us don’t deserve this America hating, Christian hating, Muslim as the leader of our country. He has done nothing but attempt to destroy everything this nation was built on, and if he’s not stopped, he will succeed. He is sympathetic to the Muslim ways of life, which are counter productive to the American/Christian way of life. GOD help us all if he can’t be stopped.

    Every day while visiting several blogs, it is obama here, obama there. Every time I hear someone talk about that retarded puppet, it seems to me that no one really knows why or how the retarded puppet got into the Whitehouse.
    Well Folks, FYI, the retarded puppet is not the problem: For many decades, there has been a huge national/international machine working to destroy our American way of life and create their version of a one world government. Unfortunately the average American does not realize that we are saturated with the tools of this huge machine; The Socialist, communist, marxist, and now the islamofascist. Add to those tools, the average American voter who is economically and politically ignorant. Add to that, the 2 or 3 generations of our kids who have been dumbed down by public education to the point that they can not make intelligent decisions. Add to that, a gutless Congress. Add to that…. AAAAh, there is not enough room on this blog “to add to that”.
    Pointing the finger is easy as is proven by those of us who do so when they do not have a solution to the problem. Our Republic is in grave danger. Is there a solution? There are many who think we are past the point of no return on our tumble into the dust bowl of history to join all the other great nations and civilizations that had their turn at greatness. With this thought, I always have to go back to WC:
