Obama’s Civilian National Security Force Plans

The Obamas want to create a boot camp for radicals who hate the military — and stick American taxpayers with the bill…..

That is according to an Investor’s Business Daily (IBD) article on Obama’s “Universal Voluntary Public Service.”

I read about Obama’s plans for a Civilian National Security Forcea few weeks ago and it sent chills up my spine….This man’s racial politics and “social change” agenda are dangerous for this country.  This policy described at IBD is full leftist program to bribe our youth with money and then indoctrinate them into a “hate-America, community-organizing, America is oppressive” mindset….basically teach them to be radicals and “social entrenpreneurs”.

And it may not stop there….

One of the most chilling comments directly from Obama’s mouth back in July was this:

We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” as the military.

Watch and hear Obama with your own eyes and ears, respectively:

That idea and comment alone is a great example of how far left and dangerous an Obama administration would be…..just what would that “civilian force” do?  It is not exactly clear, but here is an inkling of what the “volunteer” service contains:

Big Brother had nothing on the Obamas. They plan to herd American youth into government-funded reeducation camps where they’ll be brainwashed into thinking America is a racist, oppressive place in need of “social change.”

The pitch Public Allies makes on its Web site doesn’t seem all that radical. It promises to place young adults (18-30) in paid one-year “community leadership” positions with nonprofit or government agencies. They’ll also be required to attend weekly training workshops and three retreats.

In exchange, they’ll get a monthly stipend of up to $1,800, plus paid health and child care. They also get a post-service education award of $4,725 that can be used to pay off past student loans or fund future education.

But its real mission is to radicalize American youth and use them to bring about “social change” through threats, pressure, tension and confrontation — the tactics used by the father of community organizing, Saul “The Red” Alinsky.

The Obama’s have discouraged private sector work for young people… and Obama plans to entice young people into his “social indoctrination” lair with money!

The Obamas discourage work in the private sector. “Don’t go into corporate America,” Michelle has exhorted youth. “Work for the community. Be social workers.” Shun the “money culture,” Barack added. “Individual salvation depends on collective salvation.”

“If you commit to serving your community,” he pledged in his Denver acceptance speech, “we will make sure you can afford a college education.” So, go through government to go to college, and then go back into government.

Read the full IBD article, “Michelle’s Boot Camp for Radicals” and then be sure and vote for McCain/Palin 2008 on November 4.  Let’s keep this dangerous radical out of office!

  1. Just a quick question here, SRT. I agree with you that Obama has a lot of weird ideas and plans for our country, plans that will do us harm. The question I have is very simple. If he plans to discourage young people from finding jobs in the private sector, then who is going to operate our factories, work on our vehicles, work in our stores, etc?

  2. Larry;,
    Good question for Obama….

    I think your question really points out the inconsistency of Obama.

    On one hand he encourages government service and says we need a civilian force the size of the existing military….if that is the case in terms of sheer dollars, we are talking about a $500 billion force….that is a huge chunk of tax dollars for this “civilian service” idea.

    If everyone is working for the government, it is difficult to tell where the tax dollars will come from to support the program.

    Of course, similar things could be said about most of Obama’s programs….

  3. I know this isn’t really related to your post, but it does have something to do with Obama and his tax plans. He is very quick to say he is going to lower our taxes, while raising taxes on the wealthy, $250K and higher and on corporations. What does he think the corporations are going to do with those higher taxes? They certainly are not going to be paying them, but will rather pass them down the food chain to the consumers, like you and me. Our taxes will go down but the price of everything else will go up. Just one more inconsistency of Barack Obama.

  4. Larry-

  5. In a country where people freak out over the concept of a national ID card and flashing a drivers license at a polling place, I suspect Obama is gonna have some splaaanin’ to do.

    This needs to get spread around.

  6. Didn’t another politician try this once before? Hmm, let me think……………..OH YEAH! Adolph Hitler and his youth corps that I believe were called the “brown shirts” part of whos job was to report “disloyal” citizens.

  7. Craig,

    Not EXACTLY the same thing, but I admit a similar thought flash through my head. The concept is mind- boggling…

    “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set.”

    “We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s:

    – just as powerful

    – just as strong

    – just as well-funded as the military”

    Those are HIS words. This goes well beyond some national service organization. What about the

    Air Force
    Coast Guard

    50-odd State National Guard Organizations

    Border Patrol
    Customs Service
    Treasury Department

    50-odd State Police Organizations

    A sheriff’s department for virtually every county

    A police department for nearly every city of any significant size.

    We need ANOTHER “civilain national security force” costing ANOTHER $400 BIL (about what the US Military costs per year)…with heavy weapons?

    Where would the MANPOWER come from?

    Where would the MONEY come from?

    What would they DO?

  10. I would like to clarification regarding the Public Allies program. It is amazing that people will take a distorted smear job and distort it further without any critical thinking or objective research.
    Public Allies is not a radical organization. In fact, the Bush administration tripled its funding, named them a model of faith-based and community initiatives, and hired them to help other nonprofits improve their services (they teach people how to fish rather than give them fish). Also, John McCain has championed and called for more than tripling AmeriCorps programs like Public Allies if he is elected.
    The organization does not sponsor, endorse or participate in partisan or protest activities whatsoever and its service is conducted in partnership with groups like American Red Cross, Boys and Girls Clubs, faith-based organizations, and even charter and choice schools.
    The organization’s leadership curriculum is fairly similar to the types of leadership curricula that FORTUNE 500 companies use. Public Allies’ effective management and business savvy led Fast Company Magazine to give them a “Social Capitalist Award.”
    It is a shame that people will make up “facts” and distort information to attack a good organization because the Obamas have supported it.

  11. Megan,

    What about the “civilain National Security Force” that Obama talked about?

    Does that sound like a community service organization like AmeriCorps, the American Red Cross, or the Boys and Girls Clubs?

  12. I think its somewhat foolhardy to basically mock younger people for going for Obama or to belittle the importance they have in regards to the future economy, leadership, and roles in the US. The fact of the matter is that if you were to have watched both conventions, there was a stark difference in the composition of each: the DNC was noticeably younger than the RNC where the majority seemed to be considerably older ( and whiter for that matter) This is a problem for the Republicans. If you cannot attract today’s youth, then guess what? You will get “Oldsmobiled”- to use a better term.

    So do the math. A politician who not only attracts the younger voters, but also minorities is actually doing an extremely intelligent thing.

    As far as all that other mumbo-jumbo stuff in the article, yeah … whatever. You guys are a hoot! You call some of the Democrats “radicals”. How about read some of your own content. I agree that there are extreme liberals and extreme neo-conservatives. Not many (including myself) ever claims that either is superior. They’re one of the same.

  13. Bob,
    No one is mocking young people…we are asking Obama to explain his comments about youth services and the “civilian national security force”.

    You try to come off as so very “above it all”, but you obvisously believe it is OK for Obama to pander to the younger generation with bribes of money to work and be indoctrinated into his social programs.

    That is pandering that may attract younger voters. But it is not really coming from the viewpoint of work hard, make your own living and see the rewards.
    It is more geared to a proposal of I’ll give you money then you work hard for me and I promise to take care of you and teach you how I think the world should be.

  14. Bob,

    What “mumbo-jumbo stuff” are you talking about?

    Would that be what Obama is talking about doing if elected?

    By the way, do you even know what a “neoconservative” really is?

  15. Neoconservatives= left wing liberals. They are one of the same and equally extreme. I fail to see the difference.I like neither side’s stance.

    Anyhow, the premise of this article is baseless. You are taking an extremely broad statement that Obama mentioned in regards to having a possible civilian security force and putting words in his mouth suggesting that such a force would replace the current safe guards-aka- the military that we already have.I could just as easily say that:

    ” Oh my God, Obama is wanting even MORE military forces! Oh no!”

    Turning into a story about future “youth Korps” camps full of zombies is utterly ridiculous. I can’t believe I’m even wasting my time commenting on this. But its a slow day.

    By the way, I and nobody else that I know was “bribed” with money to vote for Obama. We chose to vote for him without any influence other than our own desire to have a leader that isn’t going to wreck this country any further than it already is, and I like many other people think he will do the job. Simple as that. And unlike what I imagine some of you think, I’m a Southerner, go to church, love my parents, work hard, and believe in a moral compass. This is not a black and white election. People I know from all walks of life and all belief backgrounds are behind Obama.

  16. Bob,

    Get those blinders off and spit out that kool-aid.

    Read CAREFULLY the earlier post about the “civilian national security force”. I used small words and short sentences. LOOK AT THE VIDEO. This is by far the weirdest thing he’s ever said. Those words are not made up…they are Obama’s and no one else’s. If you can’t see that, and can’t see the potential impact of such a proposal, you are either too partisan, too ignorant, or too stooopid to think for yourself.

    If McCain had said such a thing, it would be thoroughly questioned by the national media and people would be throwing a fit.

    OBTW…maybe you check out Wikipedia for a definition of “neoconservative”.

  17. That’s the second time you’ve sort of knocked Wikipedia. Interesting because it has actually proved to be more accurate that Encyclopedia Brittanica, which was what every school had in their library and still do for that matter. Are you stating that since it more often then not displays accurate information- which in some instances might ridicule your stance that sureel it must be WRONG? Of course I assume that if it was as rosy as could be in portraying Republicans, it would be hailed as a masterpiece. Trust me- it has the mud on both parties in equal proportions.

    Either way, What was I thinking, making comments on an uber-conservative blog?Its obvious that even if I said:

    ” The sky is blue on sunny days” ,

    I would be wrong.

    But perhaps you now see where we who aren’t “crazy” as you seem to indicate- think, which is that we don’t think in such as dramatic a fashion nor differ on most beliefs that you have. We’re all in it together. But I wish your candidate luck. May the best person win.

  18. I lied. One last critical comment. Since history is a good teacher, I think it is all too easy to forget how Mccain lost his last bid for the White House: By being a liberal Republican. Some of you might recall Mccain’s comment to Evangelical Christian groups in 2000 when he named them “agents of intolerance”.

    Something about that statement tells me that perhaps Mccain is not the type of person that some of you seem to be casting. Indeed- I believe him to still be a fairly liberal Republican.

    Some of you might have even forgotten his more recent speech where he mentioned that his party had lost the trust of the people in congress. I noticed a distinct hush over the crowds when he said that. He said it because its true. Hardly anyone I know who is under the age of 40 is at all in favor of Republicans. Perhaps this explains the stark observation made by me and others that the RNC was predominantly older and white. Some might say that Obama is reeling in unsuspecting young people with bribes. Others might say its because the Republican party is out of touch with that specific age group. But regardless, Mccain nailed it in his speech when he mentioned this reality.

    Mccain was totally different than all the fire breathing, fundamentalist, militaristic speakers before him. Perhaps he’s putting on a mask to make some of you happy and win the vote. But I suspect that the kind of person you think Mccain is isn’t a reality.

    So you see, I’m not totally against Mccain personally. I’m against his party who is trying to represent him as well as his running mate. If you want to know the truth, if you want Mccain to have a landslide victory, then he is going to have to be true to who he is and not pander to those who want him to be something he’s not. By taking on the image of being a super-conservative, he’s losing the young vote, which I can assure you will be the deal breaker in this race.

    So don’t say I didn’t offer some friendly advice from the ” other side”. Again- good luck to your candidate. Cheers.

  19. Holy crap, Bob! When you backed away from Wikipedia you actually said something coherent! I don’t quite agree, but it’s a huge improvement.

    Wikipedia is very much hit and miss and doesn’t have much credibility as a primary reference. One must pay close attention to the citations and underlying source material. It can be heavily biased and in some cases, absolutely false. However, I do often find it useful to quickly answer a question and find avenues for further research.

    You still have not offered any rational explanation for Obama’s strange proposal. By “dramatic thinker”, I suppose you are talking about some ultra right-wing militia joining black helicopter ‘911 truther’ type? I’m pretty far away from that…career military with an education in International Affairs. In other words, the government doesn’t typically scare or cause me to think that its out to get me. I have little faith in the government’s ability to keep something secret that is really worth knowing. In other words, I don’t buy into conspiracy theories. I’ve voted Republican most of the time, but not always. McCain was my first choice in 2000.

    That said, the stuff Obama said in this post, specifically that ONE paragraph really gets my attention. Instead of some blogger taking an innocuous Obama talking point and extrapolating, this language is HIS, it is unusually clear and, to me, unambiguous.

    If you have a coherent, rational, non-partisan explanation for what a “civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded as the military” might mean, I’d like to see it. However, don’t tell me it’s just a community service organization.

    OBTW…you did stumble on a partial definition of a “neocon”. They WERE left-wingers who changed their minds about the need to confront Communism. Reagan could be considered one, but a prime example would be Jean Kirkpatrick, Reagan’s UN Ambassador. While not quite a card-carrying Communist, she was very much a Leftie and an active member of an American Socialist organization as a young adult. Apparently, Jimmy Carter’s foreign policy pushed her over the edge. Check out the Wikipedia article!

  20. Two things about younger voters that negates their potential impact:

    The younger they are, the less likely they are to vote.

    I’m not surprised you don’t know many younger Republicans. When I was younger, I didn’t know many either. The reason is that people typically become more conservative as they get older. If they don’t become Republicans, they become conservative Democrats or Independents who end up voting for Republicans.

  21. Anyone smelling Communism? “individual depends on collective” Marxism at its best…God spare us from this man.

  22. […] My kids will be forced to listen to the views of a President that is perhaps the most anti-American in history, not to mention one who believes we need a “civilian national security force just as strong, powerful and well-funded as our military.” […]
