Lt. General Jerry Boykin is a former Delta Force commander. He recently came out firing at both the President and the GOP.
First, he claims the President is bordering on “impeachable” offenses by allowing terrorists to actively flow across our border with Mexico.
From The Daily Caller:
RALEIGH, N.C. – Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, a former Delta Force commander, says President Obama is letting terrorists flow across the U.S.-Mexico border — and that Republicans are too “paranoid” to stop him.
According to a report by Judicial Watch, citing Mexican officials, ISIS has established a presence just south of the Texas border with Mexico. Additionally, “ISIS is conducting reconnaissance of regional universities,” the report claims, “the White Sands Missile Range; government facilities in Alamogordo, NM; Ft. Bliss; and the electrical power facilities near Anapra and Chaparral, NM.”
“We might as well abolish our immigration laws altogether,” said Judd, the president of the National Border Patrol Council, in his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee.
Needless to say, General Boykin doesn’t pull his punches. He goes on to say that the GOP are basically spineless and unable to stop the president.
The most shocking statement is how grave the General feels the situation has become. For the good of the country, General Boykin could see military leaders stepping in.
“The Republican Party has been totally senseless in its unwillingness and inability to hold the president accountable. It should be no surprise that there are ISIS cells that are operating in the United States and now have established bases just across our border from a couple of major U.S. cities.”
Boykin contends that, while unlikely, Obama is bordering on “impeachable.”
“I believe, that this is where the Congress should intervene. If we go back to the concept of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors,’ I think they can make a very strong case that this president is impeachable.”
Absent prosecution, Boykin suggested that senior military leaders could act.
“The only other solution would be for some of the general officers and admirals that work inside the Pentagon to stand up and resign in protest,” Boykin suggested, “and make it very clear that the president’s orders are not only jeopardizing the Constitution, but are also unconstitutional.”
Should the military step in and take control of a bad situation?
