Obama Seeks to Confiscate All Apache Helicopters from National Guard and….

According to reports, the Army National Guard is pushing back against a plan to send every one of its 192 Apache attack helicopters to the active duty Army. Some may think this is no big deal. However, this is coming from an administration that loathes the military and wants to weaken America to the point that it cannot defend herself. The trade would replace the Guard’s attack helicopters with 111 UH-60 Black Hawks, basically transport and utility helicopters. This trade comes amid claims that there are deep budget cuts, according to Obama’s own sequestration. Make no mistake, this is an attack on the Second Amendment.

All 50 governors sent Barack Obama a letter opposing the removal of the Apaches from the Guard.

UPDATE: It has just come to my attention that the treasonous Obama administration just pledged 10 Apache helicopters to Egypt on Tuesday. Where do you suppose those Apaches will come from?

RT reports:

Delivery of the choppers is intended to aid in counterterrorism operations, the Pentagon said in a statement Wednesday, but comes only months after the US first suspended military aid to Egypt after the country’s interim government began harshly cracking down on dissidents and protesters.

“We believe these new helicopters will help the Egyptian government counter extremists who threaten US, Egyptian and Israeli security,” Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said.

According to the statement released by the US military on Wednesday, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told his Egyptian counterpart, Col. Den. Sedki Soby, that US President Barack Obama has authorized the decision to deliver the helicopters.

Next, the Pentagon said, US Secretary of State John Kerry “soon will certify to Congress that Egypt is sustaining the strategic relationship with the United States and is meeting its obligations under the 1979 Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty.” That deal between America’s top Middle East ally on Egypt has for decades allowed Cairo to stand as one of the largest recipients of US military and economic aid.

UPDATE 2: Rep. Joe Wilson’s Communications Director Caroline Delleney provided Freedom Outpost with a statement from the Congressman:

“The Army’s Aviation Restructuring initiative should be monitored closely. In addition to introducing legislation, Congressman Wilson will continue to work on this issue with House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon while crafting this year’s National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). He and many other Members remain deeply opposed to the Army’s plan to remove all AH-64 Apache helicopters from the Army National Guard and will work closely with all interested parties to ensure these resources remain intact.”
