Obama Eliminates Breakfast for US Troops in Afghanistan, Stuffs Own Face

If only American soldiers in Afghanistan were unemployed Democratic voters in Chicago, then they might be getting three square meals a day from the government.

But the military is the one place that Obama feels comfortable slashing expenses. While spending at an uncontrollable rate unseen since the last days of the Roman Empire in every other area, Obama has been cutting “waste” in the military like 20,000 Marines, Tricare healthcare for veterans and breakfast for soldiers serving in areas where he would only venture accompanied by heavy firepower.

Warren Buffett and other crony capitalists can pig out on Obama’s trillion dollar deficits. As for the troops. Let them ear MRE’s.

The Army has stopped serving cooked breakfasts to some of the U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan as part of its drawdown, a move that prompted troops to write home asking their families and friends to send care packages with cereal, breakfast bars and other foods.

The Army told the Washington Guardian the current cutbacks began Jan. 1, and affect about 2,700 soldiers deployed in forward operating bases in more remote areas of Afghanistan.

The Washington Guardian reported earlier this month that the current budget crisis in Congress prompted Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton Carter to write a memo order preparations for sweeping budget cuts across all military programs to begin as early as next month.

Officials stressed other comforts at the forward operating bases may also soon be reduced, such as laundry and recreation, as officials look for other ways to reduce the American footprint in advance of departing the country.

They said the meal cutbacks are currently affecting forward operating bases in more remote areas of Afghanistan and not affecting the main American bases in Kabul and Kandahar.

Exit questions. How many cooked breakfasts for soldiers would Obama’s 20 million dollar Hawaii vacations and the 1.4 billion that his clan’s non-stop partying buy?

While American soldiers go hungry, here is what Obama and his corrupt cronies had for their inaugural lunch.

First Course: Steamed Lobster with New England Clam Chowder Sauce, Sautéed Spinach, Sweet Potato Hay
Second Course: Hickory-Grilled Bison with Red Potato Horseradish Cake, Butternut Squash Purée, Baby Golden Beets and Green Beans, Strawberry Preserve and Red Cabbage
Third Course: Hudson Valley Apple Pie with Sour Cream Ice Cream, Artisan Cheeses
Wines: Tierce Finger Lakes Dry Riesling (2010), Korbel Natural, Special Inaugural Cuvée California Champagne, Bedell Cellars Merlot (2009)

Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette were humanitarian social workers compare to Barack and Michelle Obama.

UPDATE: Here are some comments by current and former service members

Gee

How outrageous – when I was in the US Army – it was a requirement that they provide 3 hot meals a day unless in field. Failure to provide that was grounds for an immediate honorable discharge.

I’m over here in Afghanistan right now and it’s no “crock”. I’m on Bagram and they just stopped hot breakfasts here as of 1 Feb. This isn’t about winning or losing it’s about what the current President is doing against the country he is supposed to support.

Ar’nun

I’m glad I got out when I did. There were two things in Afghanastan worth looking forward to. Going Home, and hot meals. Now the hot meals were not exactly gourmet, but they got you through the day.

Coach

When I ran a mess hall it was stressed to us to do the very best job possible because meals are part of a soliders pay. This is a violation of soliders’ rights. Where is Congress on this?

James

First off as a vet, I will tell you flat out no one serving active duty is going hungry. That accusation is just ridiculous in its face. Second I think it is really nasty that the government has cut back on giving active duty troops a warm breakfast but military is typically one disappointment after another. Be that disappointment about available duty stations, watch rotations, time allowed for liberty or just a phone call home, and so on. So as a veteran, I deeply sympathize but this is really just one more disappointment from bureaucrats, republican or democrats, who have no idea what it’s like to be deployed. This is however an awesome opportunity for all those who say they support the troops, to put their money where their mouth is by sending care packages. Here are a few trustworthy links:

      But many of the troops' ballots either didn't arrive in time for them to vote, or were never counted.

      And you can bet not many of them would have voted for Obama.

      • w. Andrako

        Or they were never sent. This has been a problem for many years and the troops never get a fair shake. Why can’t there be a standard form and plug in the names for the various states and referendums? Put them on line and stop this play grouned in the election offices in the states.

      Um I hate to tell u this buddy but you did not read your contract very well. The US Military only has to give you 1 hot meal per day. It is in every contract that anyone signs when they join.

    • Fedup

      This is outrageous, the guys out front are the ones who need a hot breakfast the most. The REMF's could give up a breakfast now and then. Why doesn't Obama take a few food stamp vouchers away from some of the moochers in LA, Detroit, chicago, NYC to make up the difference. He does't because those are votes he would lose. This WH speaks out of both sides of his mouth. He is out to destroy this country and is well on his way to do that. First by putting the US in 16 billion $$ debt, disregarding the congressional process by 1. appointing czars to do his bidding, 2. signing executive orders that are and has been determined illegal as ajudicated recently by a lower court ruling. 3. If he has his way he will disarm the american people, and bring this country to its knees. 4. He is dumbing down christianity and promoting Islam which by it own word wants to kill all christians. He is the enemy and he is amounst us.

    • Guest

      Where in the world do you people get the idea that Obama simply waves a wand and personally imposes these cuts? First, ALL cuts to defense and otherwise are coming about because Republicans have refused to recognize that we have a REVENUE problem. Conservatives CANNOT claim on the one hand that we have 25 million people NOT WORKING, because "where are the jobs", and on the other hand claim that we don't have FEWER TAX REVENUES coming IN to pay our bills because those people are UE. In fact, when tax revenues have — for 30 yrs — averaged 18.3% of GDP, in 2012 they were just 14.9% of GDP. The GOP claims weathy people LIKE ME can't be taxed more….and I ask, WHY. Romney is paying 14.5% in taxes on $20 million, while a guy earning $34,500 is paying 28%….and then you ask who is @ fault for the fact that soldiers don't have hot breakfasts.

  • Mark Anderson

    Danny boy, you are such a worthless talent. Good pick of all the propaganda.

    • Mary Sue

      no, what you were listening to that caused you to determine that this article was "propaganda" was the actual propaganda. I am guessing you only believe something if it comes out of the mouth of a left winger, and even if it's proven false.

    • Brenda Holzke

      Sorry Mark, you are wrong. My son is serving in Afghanistan and I heard it first from him. He never complains I had heard it from another solider serving over there and asked him about it. He is only getting 2 meals a day. Out of the horses mouth!

  • BLJ

    I wish someone would stuff their fist in Obama's mouth. Him and that witch he is married to are grifter supremes.

    • Edward Cline

      David L: Greenfield's observations, reports, and news have been 100% spot-on and accurate. He does not report "crock." He wouldn't have posted this item if there was no substantive evidence for his allegations. He is not in the business of saying the sky is falling, a la Chicken Little. If the sky is falling, he just wants you to know that before it falls on your head.

    • Aja

      On national television. That would be the highlight of the year

  • David L

    This article is a crock ! You folks will believe anything anti Obama ! You lost get over it!

    • Daniel Greenfield

      " You lost"

      So did America and American soldiers

      • RenaB

        America certainly did lose, They lost all self-respect when this man became President to begin with!. B. Hussein Obama is a boil on the ass of humanity! Wake up America while you still can! As far as I am concerned anyone still supporting and believing in him is blind, deaf, dumb, ignorant and irresponsible to the USA to say the least!

        • K. Griffin

          RenaB you could not have put it any clearer. I am currently going through the Medical process for a Medical Retirement with 23 years of service and 10 deployments, 8 of which i served over in Iraq and Afghanistan. This David L "CLOWN", must not have served in our great country's MILITARY!!! Thank you RenaB and ALL those that support our troops, ( your mother, father, brother, sister, husband, wife, child, grand-child) that are serving our country that is being run into the ground as we speak.

    • Mary Sue

      ok then dude, where is the EVIDENCE that this article is a crock? Your opinion that it is a crock, unsupported, is unconvincing. Particularly since Daniel linked his sources and you did not.

      • VoiceOfReason

        Mary Sue, did you even bother reading the sources that Daniel cited? If you had, you might have learned that:

        a) This decision was made by Col. Joe Wawro, "an infantry commander for the 4th Infantry Brigade Combat team." Here's a direct quote from Col. Wawro in the article:

        “After carefully examining all these inputs, I decided to modify the meal cycle as described above. This has absolutely nothing to do with the national budget and everything to do with our responsible reduction of forces."

        Not even the Secretary of Defense is involved in day-to-day operational decisions like this, much less President Obama. I mean come on, do you honestly believe that the President of the United States is making decisions like this, or do you just believe anything that reinforces your hatred of Obama?

        b) The title "Obama Eliminates Breakfast for US Troops in Afghanistan, Stuffs Own Face" is a crock in itself. We've already established that Obama has nothing to do with this anyway, but more fundamentally, breakfast has NOT been eliminated for US Troops in Afghanistan. Only cooked breakfasts have been eliminated for some of the bases.

        Here's another DIRECT QUOTE from Col. Wawro, which you'll also find in the article:

        Soldiers in the affected bases still get cooked lunch and dinners, and rely on MREs for breakfast and night snacks and that “most dining facilities have a variety of take-away items like cereal, milk juice, fruit, oatmeal, granola bars, etc. to augment the MREs."

        "By changing the meal cycle, they would reduce their overall operations by 40 percent” if breakfast and midnight snacks were converted from cooked options to MREs.

        So you see Mary Sue, this article IS a crock. It is so unbelievably untrue that I'm embarrassed for you and everyone else who weren't quite bright enough to notice it. This is BASIC stuff Mary Sue. Basic.

        I won't even comment on the article's ridiculous statement that Obama's administration has been "spending at an uncontrollable rate unseen since the last days of the Roman Empire in every other area." Nor will I explain why an inaugural dinner menu is so irrelevant that the author made himself look pathetic in trying to reach for a comparison.

        Now, Mary Sue, are you convinced that this article is in fact a CROCK?

        • sheila R

          And who exactly appointed Col Wawro? Soldiers without full hot meals is unacceptable period. Never ever have I heard the cutting of mess provisions for soldiers in forward areas because of pending removal. EVER. Do you even realize the amount of calories these people need to do the work required of them? The least we can do to give them comfort is hot food. This is shameful and yes, I do blame Obama. One marines Mother stated her son told her he went to the mess for breakfast and there was a sign up that said , No breakfast due to spending cuts. Sorry but I'd believe a soldier before I'd believe you.

        Mike, There are several here who are outraged at this horrible turn of events. I lost a brother in Iraq in 2007, and I will do just about anything to honor his memory and support our troops, including sending care packages to whoever I can. Please email me requests from you and your friends and I will get as many care packages together as soon as I possibly can. My email is zkswanson@aircanopy.net. God Bless our Troops!

      Shut Up! It Seems like this doesn't bother you any! And if that's the case then why don't you go without eating breakfast and fighting for OUR FREEDOM!!!!!!!!!!!

Even people that are For Obama feel this is horrible and it really is. It is UNEXCEPTABLE!

      I would find it MUCH harder to NOT believe this. First of all, a vet speaking about the way it was when HE was there is not the same as active duty speaking about how it is now. If you believe NOTHING you read on facebook or hear in the news, believe this. The U.S. is suffering both economically and militarily. We have a president who has broken law after law and has not been held accountable for ANYTHING. He spends your money and mine like it belongs to him and turns around and makes cuts to programs paid for by you and I that I guarantee I would rather support than his overspending on vacations and inaugural dinners AND WELFARE for a bunch of lazy S.O.B.’s who believe that the government (funded by you and I) owes them a “Free ride”. Quit sympathizing with this pig, Obama, the BIGGEST LEACH ON OUR WELFARE SYSTEM….

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "How is it that they are having wine at a government sponsored event – aren't these people technically on the clock at these events?"

      Because they're not sincerely concerned. If 0'Bama was a "transformational" leader (go to he!! you "anti-racist" racists who show loyalty to him only because of his self-identification as "black"), he'd lead by demonstrating humility and economy on a personal scale at least symbolically. Like announcing cost-savings moves as he participates in some aspect of it, at least symbolically by skipping breakfast himself.

      But all of his "cost cutting" concern is reserved EXCLUSIVELY for the military. Period. It's not about saving money. It's about deflating US power and thrilling his radical psychotic leftist peers. It's pure politics. I won't be surprised when we find that 0'Bama is spending more on line-item military expenses like toilet seats and hammers just to make sure they get the least benefits from what little funds remain. This is the guy that redirects ammunition to Homeland Security rather than arming embassy guards. He has Christians and Jews to shoot when the time comes. Any atheists siding with those "right wing radicals" will also get the same "love" from 0'Bama, the caliph prince wannabe.

    • john Stone

      Well, you got your observations right. It is about appearances and the top scroogeing the guys at the bottom.

    • Raymond in DC

      Traveling through Turkey on the way to Iran in 1976, a young Westerner on the same bus suggested Afghanistan was good for only three things: hash, opium and wolf coats. I don't know about the wolf coats, but the hash and opium is still flowing – all US efforts to get them to grow something less harmful notwithstanding. Today the Taliban are resurgent and our troops are dying because of restrictive rule of engagement. The best thing we could do is get out and put Afghanistan under quarantine.

      • objectivefactsmatter

        "The best thing we could do is get out and put Afghanistan under quarantine."

    Liberals are leftist idiots that spout the party line ad infinitum and ad nauseam. If there were a better example of a brainless zombie, I can’t think of it. Hence, by repeating the same lie over and over, the public gets so tired of pointing out the obvious fallacies that they simply stop arguing about it and it becomes “the norm”

    It is so bad now, that what has always been good, is now condemned as bad and vice versa. According to the wild eyed, extreme, and radical left is now perceived as good and the conservative right is viewed as evil. To paraphrase a popular song of recent years “… Satan is laughing with delight.”

After ending the Iraqi War…he has been operating on the same budget since 2009…a nice gift from Reid who refuses to do a budget and the lame Speaker of the House who is too timid to cut the purse strings. I think Obama has more than enough to feed our boys caviar in the bunk with wine! But instead…he is busy running the largest and most expensive White House in history…1.3 BILLION a year and buying 4G Obamaphones with excellent calling plans for every single welfare recipient and their families. Go figure!

    • Military Mom

      Not true. My son serves, and active duty, at least in Germany, now pay for their meals in the field. Unless they are out of food, and the soldier is out of luck. Happened to my son. So dissapointing, and he is soon to deploy to Afghanistan or Africa.

    Where should we send any and all breakfast type foods so our people can eat since the “Prez” couldn’t care less.

  • Chris S

    Cutting local national’s making breakfast, sure… that is okay. Cutting hot breakfast altogether is retarded. Give them the food, let the cooks make the food. Same with laundry service.

    If the administration wanted to cut costs, they would stop hiring these damned local nationals and contractors to do jobs, paying them far more than what is necessary, when we have military personnel SPECIFICALLY TRAINED to do these jobs. Our government is a joke, it was doing this even when Bush was in the office.

    We need to elect new TYPES of leaders, instead of the same “platform politicians” that we constantly see getting elected. Our politicians need to vote on issues based on the good of everyone, instead of the good of their own wallets. It is getting ridiculous, and I hope the rest of the American people start to see this.

  • Coach

    When I ran a mess hall it was stressed to us to do the very best job possible because meals are part of a soliders pay. This is a violation of soliders’ rights. Where is Congress on this?

  • A.M.

    As someone who is currently living on one of these controversial FOBs that only serves two hot meals a day, yes it is true. Due to preparations of trying to get us out of here, they have cut breakfast. It is much more cost effective to leave perishable food here than it is to throw it on a C-130 or C-17 to get it out of here. It was a sound financial decision in my opinion. You people that believe this hype are idiots. We are NOT starving here. If we need food, there is places we can get it. We are not “begging” for food to be sent to us as this idiotic writer portrays. Hell, when I WAS getting served breakfast, I was asking for cereal and such to be mailed to me. Nothing is different. Business as usual. You radical Republicans should just carry on to next thing to gripe about.

    Now, if any of you would like to send me some cereal, I like corn pops.

    • Captain Falcon

      " Hell, when I WAS getting served breakfast, I was asking for cereal and such to be mailed to me. Nothing is different. "

      Dear Mr./Mrs. A.M., thank you for setting the record straight. I am Republican but I can't trust anything my people say anymore. As for your Corn Pops, please let me know where to send them and I would be honored. Thank you for your service and God Bless.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "Another thing, the decision to chop breakfast didn't come from Obama. It came from the ARMY ground commander of the Paktika province. Carry on."

      OK. Did 0'Bama "kill bin Laden," or did it just happen on his watch? Is he accountable after 4 years of his decisions and leadership? Suckers like you always believe liars like 0'Bama who take credit for things they don't do but never accept accountability for people they hire and direct and decisions and consequences of their "leadership."

      • A.M.

        LOL. What are you even ranting about now? Anything and everything? Here let me put it in perspective for you. Let's play the pretend game for a minute. If you were living in NYC, and were moving to LA. The day before moving to LA, are you going to go to the grocery store and purchase a whole bunch of perishable food that you know 1) is not worth the space in the moving truck 2) it wouldn't even make it to LA without spoiling, OR are you going to hold off on that grocery run, perhaps sacrifice breakfast for a bit until it is worth it to buy your glorious breakfast food?

        Remember, you're getting the information from someone actually living what you are bitching about from your cushy couch in the US.

        • Michaela

          Yea you may be living it but that gives you NOOO Right to be such a DICK!! Sure you may feel that way but there are other people effected by this that may have different opinions not just YOU!

          "The day before moving to LA, are you going to go to the grocery store and purchase a whole bunch of perishable food that you know 1) is not worth the space in the moving truck 2) it wouldn't even make it to LA without spoiling, OR are you going to hold off on that grocery run, perhaps sacrifice breakfast for a bit until it is worth it to buy your glorious breakfast food? "

          Good point. "Everyone knows" that when you move to LA from New York you stop eating breakfast 2 to 4 months beforehand. It just makes sense you know. It's the only way to make sure you don't waste any eggs. And we're so concerned about saving every penny at 0'Bama inc.

        • objectivefactsmatter

          "…from your cushy couch in the US."

          You could guess in a million years where I am. You're the one making hypocritical assumptions. It's consistent with your conclusions too. You didn't exactly respond to my points yet I replied directly to your silly analogy. The Army is not moving a family from NY to LA, and we all get that managing perishables calls for making calculations. We also get that saving money on food is the last thing that needs to be calculated so conservatively. You're a tool.

  • Captain Falcon

    Everyone here clearly is trying to find a way to hate the president. Sure he makes bad decisions, but even with the word from the people in the areas being affected, saying it's not that bad, you still complain like they don't know what they want? They're grown men. They know what they're doing. They know what they're talking about. They're over seas, dealing with this, not you, and they complain a hell of a lot less than the rest of you. Use your logic, not your misplaced feelings.

        • objectivefactsmatter

          "I spoke. I'm actually living it. You downplayed that as well. "

          I have no problem with you speaking, but you attack us for objecting to the situation. You should realize your rights don't exceed the rights of others. Your first statement was "Everyone here clearly is trying to find a way to hate the president." As if we find things to complain about after making up our minds. This is just baseless way to deny how exceptionally bad he is. So let me be more clear, that you are simply looking for a way to deny our legitimate complaints by blaming it on irrational feelings. If this was the only complaint. nobody would care. There might even be a legitimate reason for such decisions, but at this point I have zero reason to trust him.

          "In my opinion, if you don't want to hear it, you'll just find something else to complain about. "

          There's plenty to choose from. Don't worry about that.

        • laura lyons

          You miss the point completely. Have you forgotten that convicted criminals have more rights than our military? If the government were to deny child rapists a hot breakfast you liberal Obama lovers would be all over that. But to deny soldiers a hot breakfast and it is considered a sound financial decision. It is a shame that you are supporting this administration. How do you feel about the reduced medical benefits that our veterans are having shoved on them? Again, you liberal Obama lovers would freak out about all kinds of human rights violations should a convicted child rapist be denied free health care. Active duty soldiers are government property, just like convicted criminals, only liberals don't care as much for our defenders of freedom as you do convicted child rapists or trees. I am a veteran myself and I would NOT advise anyone to join our military under Obama. He has shamed this nation. Also, I find it very interesting that you feel your breakfast money is better spent on extravagant parties and vacations by the Obama's. I think it speaks very loudly of your character that you are complacent enough to make that sacrifice for the man who does not give a crap about our military men and women. The same one who watched the embassy attacks in live action and told troops to stand down. I am also willing to bet that you are one of the soldiers that would actually shoot American citizens if ordered to, because obama is a great president. You are truly ate up with your president.

    When I was in Afghanistan, we had work to do. We didn't have time to worry with a hot meal, three times a day. We were never short of MREs, and I stayed so busy that the days flew by. On days when I decided to hit up the chow hall I didn't see a large turn-out for breakfast, not like dinner. Lunch was always disappointing, so I liked to eat an MRE and get back to work.
    That being said, I think those guys deserve the opportunity to have a hot meal, three times a day. I can't believe that was ever an option. Can't they focus on cutting back somewhere else? Next, they'll be asking the Air Force to clean their own barracks. Geez.

      Agreed. Regardless of anything else, the president should at the very least under these circumstances try to model responsible behavior. It's like he wants his constituents to think there is nothing wrong with spending all of this money because he'll just get more from "rich people" to pay for it. If they slow down the spending, that will take pressure off of those "rich thieves." They're egging him on, eating welfare cheese (something I heard about, not sure if it's true) and loving that he wastes so much money even on himself.

      Sigh…

    The article says the military decided to cut breakfast because of the upcoming cuts.. Sounds like the same higher ups who ask "are you army or marines?" to soldiers under fire who needed help and then decided it wasn't worth it.

It's amazing how the cuts get thrown on the little guy and not to the contract of somebody researching a gun well never use in war

  • John Stone

    It could be that it is worse under Obama than before, but a nasty little secret is that the political class does often jerk around on the troops. I could get into historic examples, but I will pass. The relatively good post WWII treatment was the exception, not the rule. Usually the citizens are better than the political class and if it becomes a political issue there will be at least a semi correction.

Glad I found out about this. Mr. O – you suck.

(Rhetorical questions :) ) I really love this country, it was the best part of the world once, but it has become so divisive over the past few years that I am beginning to worry about its future big time. As far as the military, it was my life for over 20+ years, and it changed after I left it. I am continuously being reminded how much better it is today, but still can’t grasp it. Nothing should be cut from the military, especially when it comes to their health and welfare. Good leaders would know that, maybe someone should send President Obama to Ft Benning for some training on how to actually lead.

    One of my employees has a step son that gets government handouts. He fathered three children out of wedlock, so his (now) wife gets welfare for HIS KIDS! He works about 6-7 months each year, then finds a way to get fired so he can draw unemployment for as long as he can. I offered him a job two years ago and he would not even come in and talk to me. So guess what, this slug voted for “Free healthcare” by keeping the arab poser in office another 4 years. His step dad raked him over the coals, “You get free health care because I pay for it!” That has the same effect on him as water on a duck’s back. Keeping the welfare payments is much more important than feeding people in harms way 2-hots per day. Its in the democrap’s best interest to keep them fat, dumb, happy and pulling the right vote leaver.

  • tanksoldier

    We deride the Left for their emotional rather than rational thinking… then a "story" (and that's what it is, a story) like this gets posted and people are running around with their hair on fire on OUR side.

    It ISN'T a budget issue. They are spending MORE MONEY to feed them MREs and T-rats. It is a function of how military logistics works.

    CONTRACTS for fresh food have to be given. If you don't know or aren't going to be there in a month, a contract for eggs or chicken or whatever is stupid.

    The logistics of moving, maintaining and preparing regular food are enormous. When drawing down troop levels you loose logistic support first, because those units take the longest to tear down and move and have high personnel counts for relatively low combat utility.

    It takes far more cooks, truck drivers and paper pushers to get eggs and suchlike to the troops than it does to get them MREs. Fewer boots on the ground = less logistical support. That's why the first troops in eat MREs, and the last troops out eat MREs.

    If you're trying to reduce force levels while maintaining combat strength, you send home the cooks.

    It isn't rocket science.

    BO has done plenty to be upset about. This is just stupid. It's not like he was sitting in the Oval Office one day and decided to start feeding troops MREs instead of SoS. HE almost certainly wasn't even consulted.

    • Sharon

      It didn’t seem too hard to do it before. All of a sudden, it’s too much? Those men are out there risking their lives for what?

    • Rednek

      Back in the early 50's when we needed fresh food we got it when we could and from where we could. I don't remember having to sign any long term contracts. We loaded and transported it ourselves. Things sure must be different now.

    No, Barack Obama is a liberal with slight libertarian and authoritarian traits, probably a smidgen more authoritarian.

    Obama has committed no impeachable offenses. He CAN’T BE IMPEACHED!!!

    This guy’s idiocy should be an impeachable offense.

    Is Barack Obama a “urusper”?

    I believe you mean usurper, but the answer to that question is a big NO.

    Is Barack Obama a fraud?

    No, there was some confusion about his birth certificate and conservatives exploited that by saying he was a foreigner, but he is indeed a natural born citizen, he is what he says he is.

    Is Barack Obama’s birth certificate a fraud?

    No it is not.

    Is Barack Obama a Muslim?

    I think he holds Islam close to his heart just as he holds Christianity there as well. His father was Muslim, and I think he respects and accepts that religion. You have to remember, Islam is a peaceful religion, but extremists take their holy book out of context to justify their barbarianism.

    Is Barack Obama a homosexual?

    I think the fact that he is obviously attracted to his wife and has 2 daughters speaks otherwise.

    Evidently this is just another myth from the Conservative Disinformation Network. CLOSING bases are shutting down hot breakfast service due to logistical reasons, not due to the Obama administration budget cuts, or even less preposterously due to Obama eliminating any cooked breakfasts, as falsely claimed

    There is no truth to the Internet myth that Washington budget cuts have taken away breakfast for service members in Afghanistan, Defense Department officials said.

    You are a pathetic racist! That’s what Obama Derangement Syndrome will do to a nitwit! You, sir, are a bigger disgrace because you apparently couldn’t be bothered to do a simple Google search on the issue that is brought up by a notoriously inaccurate scandal rag.

    Claiming Obama is a king or dictator when he was elected twice by more than 51% of popular vote is not credible

    What you really mean is that if we do not agree at things through evangelical conservative Right wing bobblehead eyes there is no conversation just as long as you can manipulate, coerce and control the rights of people. you people are happy with eating scraps from the table of the wealthy, cleaning after them at less then minimum wage, living on your knees because you think it is the future. If that is the future you plan for your children then you are the low life pathetic scum bag you profess others to be. You, in reality, are no better than a worthless parasitic creature who’s nature is to eat other people’s filth! Liberals have also died for this great country and you thinking that only right wing bobble heads have given the ultimate sacrifice is as unfounded as the liberties you are denying to any American. To say that liberals are the only people living in that special place the bible speaks of is total proof of your denial of anything other white. It is not impossible for you to stoop because you are living there with the ranting and raving that you exemplify in your everyday life. I truly feel bad for your children because they will ultimately bear the sins of a MORON!

    You are a dipstick retard. You’re about as “American” as a Iran’s President A-mad-nut-job. He rants and raves like a loose wheel against Obama, just like you.

    You are a pathetic racist! Obama is our legally elected Pres…twice! DEAL WITH IT!

    • JAFO

      JAFO – just another fu@kin observer. Just so you know. I could careless what color his skin is. A man is to be judged by his actions. For a president to state “Those that have nothing to hide have nothing to fear”. Then go and secure all his records to prevent public examination of same makes him a liar. He, signs a presidential order NDAA that violates the Constitution on so many levels is worth impeachment. He uses drones against a sovereign nation – Pakistan to kill foreign citizens with a declaration of war – crimes against humanity – should stand before a world court. Bengazie, fast and furious, undeclared war on Lyiba and bank bailouts not to mention the debt. This man – Barry Soranto has breeched and violated both the US Constitution and the BOR and international law so many times any rational observer can see what he is. Like I said I judge men on their actions. You defend him because he is black …. So in reality who is the racist?

  • Questionman

    I'm getting sick and tired of you racists demeaning the President because he's black! He is NOT a communist, nor a socalist, nor an Anti-American! Read a damn dictionary! Is Barack Obama a Marxist?
    No, Barack Obama is a liberal with slight libertarian and authoritarian traits, probably a smidgen more authoritarian.

    Obama has committed no impeachable offenses. He CAN'T BE IMPEACHED!!!

    This guy's idiocy should be an impeachable offense.

    Is Barack Obama a "urusper"?
    I believe you mean usurper, but the answer to that question is a big NO.

    Is Barack Obama a fraud?
    No, there was some confusion about his birth certificate and conservatives exploited that by saying he was a foreigner, but he is indeed a natural born citizen, he is what he says he is.

    Is Barack Obama's birth certificate a fraud?
    No it is not.

    • Sharon

      Read what Jim said again. He didn’t misspell any words, and NO ONE has mentioned Obama’s color, which is half and half. Everything on the left is racist if it doesn’t fit into their little cubby-holes. Stop accusing everyone of being racist. It’s a stupid, elementary-school thing to do, unless that’s where you go to school. You are so condescending to everyone here, and I’m sick of you leftists being racists. I know people from Kenya who are white. They are not nice people. I don’t like them or what they stand for. Does that make ME a racist?

    • fedupliz

      Stop drinking the kool aid. you are dumber thandirt

  • Questionman

    Part 2
    Is Barack Obama a Muslim?
    I think he holds Islam close to his heart just as he holds Christianity there as well. His father was Muslim, and I think he respects and accepts that religion. You have to remember, Islam is a peaceful religion, but extremists take their holy book out of context to justify their barbarianism.

    Is Barack Obama a homosexual?
    I think the fact that he is obviously attracted to his wife and has 2 daughters speaks otherwise.

    Evidently this is just another myth from the Conservative Disinformation Network. CLOSING bases are shutting down hot breakfast service due to logistical reasons, not due to the Obama administration budget cuts, or even less preposterously due to Obama eliminating any cooked breakfasts, as falsely claimed

    There is no truth to the Internet myth that Washington budget cuts have taken away breakfast for service members in Afghanistan, Defense Department officials said.

    You are a pathetic racist! That's what Obama Derangement Syndrome will do to a nitwit! You, sir, are a bigger disgrace because you apparently couldn't be bothered to do a simple Google search on the issue that is brought up by a notoriously inaccurate scandal rag

  • I want to know

    I want to know why Americans continue to buy that our President has our best interests at heart. The only thing that should be stopped is the President’s and his family’s extravagant lifestyle on the taxpayers’ dime. Our military deserves the lobsters that were served at the Inaugural lunch and a Chief who believes in them and their work. He’s not looking at term limits and he’s probably looking at ruining the country until he decides to step down. The media is playing his game and telling us only what they are “allowed” to tell us. This is enough and somehow, Americans need to stop this nonsense!

  • AMMO DOG

    I have to agree with Chris S. My Army job is Ammo Supply. I cannot conduct my job state-side because civilian contracts (which have been turned into DOD civilians) work in my Ammo Yard (ASP). They are also overseas. I make roughly $22,500 a year while these guys make $100,000. So the gov't is paying TWO people a total of $122,500 when they could be paying ONLY ONE the bare minimum of $22,500. Let me EARN my money (instead of sitting around for it) AND SERVE MY COUNTRY!!!

    P.S. This Conservative does not use feelings like the dems do (or try to say we do). I use LOGIC.

    Those of you who don't think this is happening are freaking retarded. I am a Iraq war veteran and this is not only happening overseas, but it happens stateside too.

You all were warned this was going to happen and that this man did not have the military's support and yet you still voted him into office. Way to show your appreciation to your military folks and screw us over. If you all were smart, you would get him out NOW before it's too late and we have nothing left to save.

  • guest

    I forwarded this article to a US Army Major. Following is his reply. Spend your outrage on something real, like the administration's war on the Second Ammendment.

    "Total bullsh!t like most of the information on the internet. While there
    are some very remote bases in afghanistan that may only have one hot meal a
    day this is totally normal and troops rotate in and out. The army has its
    own cooks and mobile kitchens….if we wanted a hot meal CDRs could provide
    it.

    I was on 5 different bases while I was in Afghanistan and everyone of them
    had three hot meals a day….even the base with only about 15
    Soldiers….breakfast everywhere had omelets made to order, biscuits and
    gravy, plenty of fresh fruit, plenty of hot and cold drinks, energy bars and
    snacks for the afternoon if you were not going to be back for lunch,
    ect…… "

  • Hunter

    I serve in the US military and I am offended by this article. We still receive all our meals and always will. Blaming a president who does not control the budget (that would be congress fyi) will accomplish nothing. I joined the military not to eat the best food, or live the life of royalty, but to serve my country and protect the freedom of the people back home. I support my Commander in Chief, who is actively trying to bring all the troops home from Afghanistan.

  • independent voter

    I do not like obama at al,l but I do not have to make up stuff about him. There is plenty of things not to like him about. The article is try to slip pass everybody that they are not getting COOKED breakfast , and try to have you think it's no breakfast at all . and again by saying they are asking people to send them cereal and breakfast bars . which are also not COOKED food. the comment from A.M. 4 days ago also expends it from someone who is out there. You have to ask yourself, with so mush real things to complain about Obama why write this crap. Is it really about obama or about looking for a reason to make the democrats look bad.

  • April E.

    This is ridiculous! If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, why in the world would we NOT provide it for our soldiers? Seriously, Obama should start skipping breakfast (as well as his Hawaii vacations) if he's going to take it from our soldiers who are working HARD doing PHYSICAL work every single day. I'd like to see Obama wear the gear the military wear all day long.

  • Don M

    A.M. Replied four days ago:
    Another thing, the decision to chop breakfast didn't come from Obama. It came from the ARMY ground commander of the Paktika province. Carry on. My question is: Did the ARMY ground commander of the Paktika province cut his own breakfast?

  • Warrant Officer … Vietnam

    Americans MUST gather togethre and start a “drive” to have Americans donate breeakfast items (cereal bars etc,) to be sent as CARE packages with a lot of fanfare and media coverage, stating publicaklly we feeding our soldiers because Louis and Marie Antonette wiol not…….. emarrass that sorry excuse for a human being.

  • http://yahoo Jwall

    Obama cared nothing about the common man during this last reelection. It was one lie after another. He’s the epitome of a lifelong politician looking for ways to fill his pockets before he is done. Wasteful welfare programs that do not promote getting a job. He is useless.

  • Guest

    All I can think about are the stories I have heard from my Dad, a WWII and Korea Veteran and my brother, a Vietnam Veteran. It may not be as good as it was with your meals but you have it a lot better than military from any other wars. That doesn't diminish your service, I just think it should give you something to think about.

    There is no truth to the Internet myth that Washington budget cuts have taken away breakfast for service members in Afghanistan, Defense Department officials said.
    Americans serving in Afghanistan can have up to four meals a day: breakfast, lunch, dinner and a midnight meal, if one is needed.
    The Internet myth’s genesis came from a few forward operating bases in eastern Afghanistan’s Paktika province that are closing or being turned over to Afghan security forces. Instead of a hot, prepared breakfast, service members at those bases receive packaged meals known as “meals, ready-to-eat,” or MREs. This streamlines the logistics for these closing bases, officials explained.
    Snopes.com — a website that looks into Internet myths — rates this tale as “partly true.” The original email that sparked the controversy vastly overstated the extent of the “MRE for breakfast” policy.

    "The Army has stopped serving

    cooked breakfasts

    to

    some

    of the U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan as part of its drawdown, a move that prompted troops to write home asking their families and friends to send care packages with

    cereal, breakfast bars and other foods."

    I separated the pertinent lines here. They are NOT going without food, period. And, if they are complaining about not getting HOT food at breakfast, then asking for CEREAL and BREAKFAST BARS from home is not going to remedy the situation.

  • rose

    okay, I've red this article, and I can say I'm deeply ashamed of Obama for doing this. Does it mean that I believe hes a awful person, no. Do I agree with all his politics, no. But what I can say is after reading the above comments, I'm more ashamed in the people. seeing comments about losing faith in Liberals and just hate. Guess what the government not going to change, every one in this government are lairs! Instead of attacking others whether there republican or Democratic, radical or Liberals. We the people should be fighting for our country that falling due to the actions of the higher ups. instead of worrying about political parties. when individuals need someone to blame they look at the people who oppose their views to place blame. its sad to see that a once Beautiful Country who's morals were the highest in the world, based of helping and being the land of opportunity, fell into hatred and darkness, cause while people are blaming other Americans for what party they are in, and the government feeding into that idea, we the people are blind to what they are doing. Cause when a country's people are divided, the country is left with disgusting and dark charters running a mess of the governments while we fights with each other, George Washington didn't want political parties cause he said they would be our downfall, he couldn't be more right.

  • Tacw0lf

    Ok so that does suck for the troops out there..not going to lie. But, I will say that when the base we were at in Iraq started its draw down, there were no cooked meals..only MRE's for every meal for 4 months. The thing is, is that there is no right place to make cut backs. No matter where something is cut, someone will bitch and moan about it about it and how bad it is that something was taken from them. The Marines just had their tuition assistance cut as a result of the cut backs that are going on government wide. I will say that the fact that breakfast is cut for the troops in Afghanistan is a hardship, but was there thought given to the soldiers that are at FOB's (Forward Operating Bases) that have had no hot food for any meal? There is still constant fighting going on and we are still at war (no matter the public opinion, the world still believes we are). Hardships are going to be hard for a reason, this is how war's are. At least bullets aren’t being discontinued, that would truly be a tragedy.

  • Anomaly Jane

    Yes at this point in the USA, the budget must be cut….but not from school lunches, or much needed social services that help the masses barely slide by on a day to day basis. Oh, & not by slashing social security to the bone…or adding more taxes to gasoline & food!!! The last thing that should not be cut is a good hot breakfast for 'OUR' troops (no matter what we think or believe about us fascism in the world). To maintain good health OUR GUYS need a good breakfast! It is the most important meal of the day!!!!! I do not like the fact that our troops ARE in the middle east….no do I like it that 'The Wealthy Elitists' & their 'entourage' of Politicos, Corporate raiders, Big Pharma/Big Agro, & other alphabet agencies basically the 1% do not budget thenselves. I really am ashamed of a 'government' that slashes programs that assist those that need assistance….while gorging themselves with the best of everything. Our Troops no matter where they may be stationed should be thought of as vital resources, & in every way possible the government should do what it takes to maintain healthy troops. Like I said before 'our troops' vitally need a good breakfast that will give them the health & stamina to kill, interrogate, torture, lob depleted uranium bombs, shakedown & abuse the defenseless old people, mothers & children in the war zones.
    I say cutback the defense contractors…the guns & tanks & Troops. That will help get us out of their countries so the People can heal & begin to start working on their 'infrastructure' so that they might also live in peace & afford to eat 'breakfast', buy books, send their children to school, medical facilities for those who are suffering Trauma & MPD from having had to live with the horror they experienced every day, & will carry the emotional & mental scars for the rest of their relatively short lives due to the tons of depleted uranium they live in and breathe. Hey!!! I think it would be a better idea to provide a good hot breakfast to every human being on the planet. It would cost less, waaaay less than the 'wars' & it would be very good PR for the USA. Yeah THE BREAKFAST PEACE PROJECT would go a long way to repair the USA's public image in the world! We could begin by taxing the' ultra rich with those taxes going to get rid of world hunger, oppression, weapons stockpiling, camps like Guantanamo, health care for the poor, money to institute programs about preventative health care & sex education, adressing men's & women's issues equally so that no woman has to be kept in bondage, behind closed doors, or behind a burkha….with everyone able to go to school & become a contributing part of their communities.

  • memarose

    As one of the many family members sending groceries to help feed breakfast to forces in remote Afghanistan, I have an idea: Since we are spending money to provide what the government/military should be providing, why not allow us to claim the costs as a fed. income tax deduction? "We the People" want to look after those who look after us, but we ARE doing the job of the government.

    I’m appalled at the way everyone is acting on here. I too am in the military and I for one refuse to go along with this bashing of our president. You all know as well as I do, you are not being made to go hungry! Seriously, how much is enough for you people? How much do you think is owed you for being in the military, the world? Well, I am here to tell you you won’t get it! You are owed nothing. You serve in the military because you love this great country of ours. Not because you get free health care, or instant pension upon exiting the military when everyone in the private sector has to wait till they are 65. Not for the seriously reduced interest rate on housing, or credit cards too because your military. Lots of people don’t know that, that most of you only pay 4-5 percent on your credit cards when everyone else is up at 18% or more.
    I am disgusted because a lot of republicans are right. The nation, and a lot of it’s military, have become addicted to entitlements. The entitlements have to end, and they have to end right now!

    Hey Mark, let entitlements end in Washington first! The military deserves them before the crooks in Washington does.

Why does he have no fewer than 16 different Social Security numbers and possibly as many as 80 plus?

    If he has this towering intellect that everyone (in the press) says that he is,why can we not read what he wrote in college and graduate school? No other candidate or elected official has been given this sort of carte blanche.

    There is no truth to the Internet myth that Washington budget cuts have taken away breakfast for service members in Afghanistan, Defense Department officials said.

    Americans serving in Afghanistan can have up to four meals a day: breakfast, lunch, dinner and a midnight meal, if one is needed.

    The Internet myth’s genesis came from a few forward operating bases in eastern Afghanistan’s Paktika province that are closing or being turned over to Afghan security forces. Instead of a hot, prepared breakfast, service members at those bases receive packaged meals known as “meals, ready-to-eat,” or MREs. This streamlines the logistics for these closing bases, officials explained.

    For what it’s worth, Snopes.com labeled the so-called myth “partly true.”

    Bottom line: Thanks to the Obama drawdown, not budget cuts, U.S. troops will indeed be unable to get a hot breakfast while serving in Afghanistan and will instead be served packaged MREs.

        Stop drinking the Kool-aid…her one-size-fits-all, famine-calorie approach to school lunches DOES make children hungry, esp active children, which DOES impact their concentration in class.

    When I ran a mess hall it was stressed to us to do the very best job possible because meals are part of a soliders pay. This is a violation of soliders’ rights. Where is Congress on this?

    umm obama put them on recess which is a real big violation, he’s not not supposed to decide only congress, why is he still around? nixon had water gate and other stuff, clinton caught a bj and were both impeached, obama has broken the declaration of impedance rules, he bows down to muslim scum, he takes all the flags out of the oval office and the list goes on, yet this scumbag is still there… how and why?

    I cant wait till his term is up. These are some of the most important people in out country, fighting, loosing their lives. Maybe if they had a good breakfast, they could of been more alert while fighting. This is a disgrace Obama. While you sit and eat, let your daughters go without breakfast. How would you feel about that?

      It is time to hang that SOB!

    It’s time to impeach this criminal S.O.B., lock him up in jail where he belongs, and deny him food!

    Why should congress and the President get 3 Meals a day if troops can’t. My dad was in the Korean war and said any food is better then none at all. Congress should cut their $174,000 wage to help feed the troops then they might give the food back. Why should they party like kings and the troops starve not right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I’m sorry good sir but are you speaking from FOB experience? Going out for a month on an operation you look forward to hot chow. EVERY person on a PB or FOB knows that. Big moral F***. But, it’s nice to see that the command groups at Kabul and KAF are still in good shape! If you are implying that we should just sit back and take it because “it’s done and happening” than I would implore you to do a bit of searching on what it is to be an American and not from a third world dictatorship. Cheers

    The loss of the breakfast meal is not just in the field. My son is active duty and he has told me that they have a “grab and go” breakfast which consists of cereal , bananas and nutrigrain bars. No hot meal and that is here in the U.S. So as others have stated that it’s ok for this jerk in office to take multimillion dollar vacations, send money even during sequestration to other countries, feed and house illegal immigrants but to take care of our servicemembers, that is not on this administration’s priority list.

    This is such bull… It is time to start getting rid of the politicians. They have far too many benefits they have awarded themselves and now they are cutting food for our soldiers? No.. Not right on so many levels!!! I think they should not be allowed to hold public office if they have not served in the military so they would know firsthand what our soldiers go through!

  • dancemomtoo131

    this is not true…the troops still get 4 meals a day. in some areas the first meal of the day has been replaced with MRE’s because of logistics, not budget cuts…get the facts right people

  • chyna

    IF they feel They MUST cut somewhere then of all the places to cut, why someone that is far from home, defending our country? Soldiers MUST keep up their strength for mind and body to be at it’s best. CUT the meal in the prisons…There are so many other ways,,,,Why make it harder and more disrespectful as well as showing lack of appreciation to our troops over there trying to keep us safe! This is one of the most horrific things congress as ever done!!!! WHY??? Because Obama says so!! Cut down on some of those expensive vacations and White House Dinner parties they throw! I am more discouraged and disappointed than ever now for this Country….NO ONE can tell me we are not in the second coming of Christ. And it seems to me as untouchable as Obama is, that he may be the Anti Christ. He should have been charged with Treason, or Impeached, etc by now…And yet he is still trying to get the law changed to where he can run for ANOTHER TERM! If he does I will be totally sure within my self of what and who he really is…
