[Newsmax.com] A new national poll shows that only four out of every 10 Americans believe President Barack Obama is managing the government “effectively” and 53 percent do not believe he is “honest and trustworthy.”

The CNN/ORC International survey also found that 53 percent of respondents do not believe Obama is “honest and trustworthy,” a figure that for the first time represents “a clear majority” raising that concern.

[Infowars.com] Obama is traitorously attempting to emasculate the U.S. military by conducting a purge of the top ranks, according to retired Army Maj. Gen. Patrick Brady.
“There is no doubt he (Obama) is intent on emasculating the military and will fire anyone who disagrees with him,” Brady told WorldNetDaily last week.
Disagreeing on issues such as “homosexuals, women in foxholes, the Obama sequester” will result in early retirement. In the past year alone nine generals have been purged from the Pentagon’s ranks. “They are purging everyone” a source told WND.
“Over the past three years, it is unprecedented for the number of four-star generals to be relieved of duty, and not necessarily relieved for cause,” retired Army Lt. Gen. William G. “Jerry” Boykin told F. Michael Maloof. “I believe there is a purging of the military,” he added. “The problem is worse than we have ever seen.”
