Ya’ gotta’ love a guy whose nickname is “mad dog.” He is under serious consideration for Secretary of Defense by Donald Trump. The Rugged Individualist truly hopes he gets the job!
James N. Mattis is a retired United States Marine Corps general who last served as the 11th commander of United States Central Command from August 11, 2010 to March 22, 2013. He “retired” after 41 years of military service. He was dismissed by Barack Hussein Obama because he disagreed with Obama’s lead from behind strategy. The Marine Corps Times calls Mattis the “most revered Marine in a generation.”
Obama fired General Mattis without even calling the general to let him know he was being replaced. “I am told that General Mattis was travelling and in a meeting when an aide passed him a note telling him that the Pentagon had announced his replacement as head of Central Command… He hadn’t received a phone call or a heads-up from anyone at the White House,”
Mattis is the most infamous example of Obama’s purge, but far from it’s only example. The lame-stream media is questioning whether President-elect Trump will hire people with opposing views (Romney, for example). But you never heard one word when Obama fired every general that thought he was an a**hole!
When a reporter inquired about Mattis’ dismissal, his source very calmly said:
Mattis hates Obama, and the word is, the general really gave him hell over the NDAA. He called him a dictator.
The NDAA is the National Defense Authorization Act. It is a United States federal law specifying the budget and expenditures of the United States Department of Defense. Each year’s act also includes other provisions. In testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee, Mattis pulled no punches in criticizing policies and strategies ranging from confronting Chinese bullying in Asia and pulling U.S. troops out of Afghanistan to sharp defense cuts. He said that America needs “to adapt to changing circumstances, to come out now from our reactive crouch and take a firm, strategic stance in defense of our values.”
If you are a fan of General George S. Patton you will likely be a fan of the outspoken General James N. Mattis. Here are some of his more famous quotes.
“I don’t lose any sleep at night over the potential for failure. I cannot even spell the word.”
“The first time you blow someone away is not an insignificant event. That said, there are some a**holes in the world that just need to be shot.”
“I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you f**k with me, I’ll kill you all.”
“Find the enemy that wants to end this experiment (in American democracy) and kill every one of them until they’re so sick of the killing that they leave us and our freedoms intact.”
“Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.”
“You are part of the world’s most feared and trusted force. Engage your brain before you engage your weapon.”
“No war is over until the enemy says it’s over. We may think it over, we may declare it over, but in fact, the enemy gets a vote.” (Obama should have headed this advice.)
“You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn’t wear a veil. You know, guys like that ain’t got no manhood left anyway. So it’s a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them.”
“There is nothing better than getting shot at and missed. It’s really great.”
“I’m going to plead with you, do not cross us. Because if you do, the survivors will write about what we do here for 10,000 years.”
“Demonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy’ than a U.S. Marine.”
I think of ISIS and its siblings as one step worse than Nazis. We need someone like Mattis to deal with this threat.
