The Common Sense Show has learned that Obama is renewing his purge of America’s military leaders. In this instance, Obama has targeted the leadership of the submarine fleet.

The Navy has fired one of its most respected submarine commanders, Commander Edward Byers, who was in charge of the nuclear-powered attack submarine USS Dallas since November 2014, was dismissed by the commander of Submarine Squadron 12 and reassigned to the staff of the Undersea Warfare Development Center in Groton, Connecticut. The Byers’ reason for the firing was cited as the “loss of confidence in his ability to lead” as the only reason. As I read the published military report, I know absolutely no more about why Byers was fired than before I read the report. There is a lot beneath the surface that is not being released.

Navy Commander Mike Conner, stationed at Guam, and the commander of the Los Angeles-class fast attack submarine USS Oklahoma City. Connor was relieved in January by Captain Jeffrey Grimes, commander of Submarine Squadron 15, for unspecified reasons. A replacement for Conner has not been announced.

Captain Dave Adams of the Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine USS Georgia was relieved Jan. 4 by Rear Adm. Randy Crites, the commander of Submarine Group 10 at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay in Georgia,

As the United States is on a collision course for war with Russia and China, it is curious that Obama is dismantling the leadership of America’s last line of defense, the nuclear deterrent of America’s submarine fleet.

Is History Repeating Itself?

Byers was the third Navy commander to be relieved of his duties over the recent weeks. These sudden and mysterious firings are reminiscent of the Obama-led purge against over a total of 260 military commanders which captured headlines two years ago.


Since assuming the Presidency, Obama has indeed fired approximately 260 senior command officers. Since a near state of war exists between the U.S. and Russia/China, it is an outrageous act of incredible stupidity to dismantle the leadership of your fighting force which could be thrown into World War III in a moment’s notice! Again, I ask, is this stupidity or treason?
With regard to the mass military firings of senior command military officers, retired Army Major General Paul Vallely stated that “The White House protects their own. That’s why they stalled on the investigation into fast and furious, Benghazi and Obamacare. He’s intentionally weakening and gutting our military, Pentagon and reducing us as a superpower, and anyone in the ranks who disagrees or speaks out is being purged.”

Obama Is Significantly Weakening the Reach and Power of the Military


The Obama administration announced that they were seeking to reduce the size of the U.S. military to 490,000  (pre-WW II levels), then the number was to be reduced to 450,000. Presently, the Obama administration seeks to drop the number to 420,000 troops.

The chief of staff of the Army, General Ray Odierno, with regard to Obama’s cut in American troops, “The world is changing in front of us. We have seen Russian aggression in Europe, we have seen ISIS, we have seen increased stability in other places.”

Low Morale: Overworked, Underpaid and Undervalued

The Military Times has previously conducted a survey of active-duty troops who have subsequently reported a stunning decline in how soldiers rated their overall quality of life. Prior to Obama, 91% of the troops reported their quality of life to be good or excellent. In the most recent survey, only 56% still refer to their military lives good or excellent.

According to the survey, before Obama became President, 85% of the troops would recommend a military career to others. Today, that number has dropped to 73%.  Re-enlistment rates have declined by 9% (72% to 63%), despite the horrendous domestic job market. Subsequently, it is easy to conclude that the leadership of the military is not the only element to be abused by the Obama administration. The very rank and file of the military is as well. And while I am piling on and exposing the anti-American actions by the present administration, let’s not forget about Obama’s Veterans Administration fiasco in which our wounded warriors have been horribly treated by the minions that serve this administration.

One does not have to be an expert dot connector in order to see an undeniable pattern here. It is so clear that this administration is committing abject treason by purposely dismantling the leadership of the American military. Why?

Obama Prepares for Civil War

In a series of widely publicized reports back in 2012,Russian paratroopers rehearsed seizing Denver International Airports and seizing the newly constructed underground CIA headquarters in the same area.

***** “One speculation in this report, however, does note that the scenario to be played out in late May (2012), in Colorado, as planned by the Americans, does, indeed, mirror similar plans of the Russian General Staff of actions to be taken in the case of sudden civil war where “outside forces” would be called upon to protect the government from overthrow by internal forces or armed rebellion by the military.“ *****

In Obama’s mind, what event could compel an armed rebellion by the military of such a magnitude that it would require a Russian invasion of Denver, CO? In short, what is Obama planning to do to the American people that is so heinous that has to continue the military leadership?

Traitors Among Us

The Alger Hiss UN related spy scandal and Senator McCarthy’s pursuit of communists who had infiltrated the State Department made an impression on the military.

Obama could fire every single officer above the rank of Lieutenant and still not be able penetrate the command structure of the military’s control of nuclear weapons because of the manner in which the control structure is organized. I do not have all the details of this organizational structure, and I have pledged to not reveal the operational details that I do know, from my deep-cover sources, except to say that some of the control structure lies outside of active duty military personnel and therefore, is outside the reach of any president.


The Common Sense Show has come into possession of incontrovertible evidence that Obama is indeed preparing for civil war as we have come into possession of documents which addresses this issue. When the evidence is presented in tomorrow’s edition of The Common Sense Show, the reason that Obama is purging the submarine fleet will be painfully obvious.
