Renowned author: Obama wants military leaders who will fireon U.S. citizens Military By: Joe Newby On Monday, Dr. Jim Garrow, a renowned author andhumanitarian who was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, sparked afirestorm of controversy when he wrote on Facebook that President Obama wantsmilitary leaders who will fire on U.S. citizens. In an exclusive interview withExaminer.com, Dr. Garrow said the man who told him this is a military hero whois known by everybody in the country. "I have just been informed by a former senior militaryleader that Obama is using a new 'litmus test' in determining who will stay andwho must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks," hewrote. "The new litmus test of leadership in the military isif they will fire on US citizens or not," the unnamed military officerreportedly said. Dr. Garrow also wrote that those who do not meet this litmustest are being removed. On Tuesday, Dr. Garrow said that officers who know aboutthis cannot come forward without endangering themselves and facing possibleretaliation from the administration. According to Dr. Garrow, the officer who made the allegationlearned about the litmus test from the person who got him interested inmilitary service. That person, Dr. Garrow added, was forced out for failing tomeet the criteria. Dr. Garrow said he promised to keep the officer's name fromthe public, adding that he stands behind what he was told regardless of theconsequences. "I would stake my full reputation on thisgentleman," he said. "If people want to throw things at me, fine," headded, calling it "an honor" to come under fire for keeping hispromise to the officer. Dr. Garrow told Examiner that there are people in theadministration who are paid to "attack those who raise doubts" aboutanyone who criticizes the Obama administration. As numerous sites have mentioned, Dr. Garrow is noconspiracy theorist or "random crackpot on Facebook." Not only is hethe author of "The Pink Pagoda: One Man’s Quest to End Gendercide inChina," he is a highly-regarded human rights activist who has rescuedthousands of young girls from certain death in China and currently owns over250 schools in that country. Examiner's Dave Gibson said the shocking claim comes on theheels of a Washington Free Beacon report that says Marine Corps Gen. JamesMattis will leave his post as Commanding General of Central Command in March,several months earlier than anticipated. The Free Beacon described his dismissal as a "bum'srush." A post at the blog Nice Deb reminds readers that a paperissued by a West Point think tank warns of so-called “far right” groups likethe “anti-federalist” movement, that supports “civil activism, individualfreedoms and self-government.” According to an article at the Washington Times, the reportdescribes "anti-federalists" as those who "espouse strongconvictions regarding the federal government, believing it to be corrupt andtyrannical, with a natural tendency to intrude on individuals’ civil andconstitutional rights. Finally, they support civil activism, individualfreedoms, and self government. Extremists in the anti-federalist movementdirect most their violence against the federal government and its proxies inlaw enforcement.” Given today's political climate, that definition couldencompass much of the Tea Party and those who espouse conservatism.
