Blogging Tory and self-described military junkie Paul E. Marek of Saskatoon finally clues in to what we here at CC HQ have been blogging about for days:
The Invisible Hand of Socialism
The Department of Defense has allegedly compelled a private employer to fire a U.S. Army Reserve major from his civilian job after he had his military deployment orders revoked for arguing he should not be required to serve under a president who has not proven his eligibility for office.
According to the CEO of Simtech Inc., a private company located in Tampa, Fla., and contracted by the Defense Security Services, an agency of the Department of Defense, the federal government has compelled the termination of Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook.
Cook's attorney, Orly Taitz, wrote in her blog that Simtech CEO Larry Grice said he would try to find another position within the company for Cook, but nothing is currently available.
Unsurprisingly, Mr. Marek is, once again, as dumb as a bag of dog turds. But you already knew that, right?
BY THE WAY, there's actually a simpler interpretation of what happened here. The DoD had no need to demand that Cook's employer fire him. Rather, all the DoD needed to do was revoke Cook's security clearance, at which point he was probably unemployable if his position with Simtech required such a clearance. At that point, Simtech undoubtedly had no choice but to release him, and all the DoD probably did was remind Simtech of their contractual obligations to the DoD with respect to DoD-related work -- no security clearance, no workee.
Others have been speculating the same way, such as here, where the government's revocation of someone's security clearance is essentially unreviewable. Quite simply, by his actions, Cook demonstrated that he was entirely untrustworthy, at which point the DoD acted appropriately, at which point Cook was well and truly fucked, and all by his own hand.
And Paul E. Marek is still as much of a total twatwaffle as ever. Quelle surprise.
IRONY, OH IRONY: Appreciate, if you will, the stone-faced hypocrisy of Cook's supporters, rising to his defense, demanding fairness, or due process, or employment rights and so on. These are, of course, the same howling yobs who absolutely despise the concept of unions and workers' rights, suddenly deciding that those rights are incredibly important after all.
There's a reason I hate these people.
