The much talked about Sequestration that President Obama said shut the government down last time, was blamed on the GOP. That sequestration however belonged to Obama. He and one of his council wrote the bill and sent it to the House a& Senate to be signed. They did, and then it returned to the President;s desk whom signed it into law. His comments were if it went badly, he would blame it all on the GOP, and he would get to cut defense as he wanted. He said it was a win , win situation. He has been cutting our military, and military brass at alarming rates during his administration. That is why he said he want his own civilian army, he knew they would follow his orders. Our military has sworn allegiance to this nation and it's citizens, to protect from both foreign and domestic terrorist. He is not sure they will fire on Americans if ordered.Probably why he also sighed treaty with U.N. in 2012 allowing them to send foreign troops onto America soil if he call for nation wide Martial Law. They would come to protect the government, not you.
