Hagel ‘will be used to push far-left agenda’ Senator: Obama seeks bipartisan face for policies ‘destroying America’

President Obama will use Chuck Hagelâs Republican affiliation to put a bipartisan face on a âfar leftâ military agenda, including policies that are âdestroying America,â charged Sen. Jim Inhofe in a radio interview.
Inhofe, the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, went on WABC Radioâs âAaron Klein Investigative Radioâ to explain his opposition to Obamaâs nomination of Hagel to the defense secretary post.
âThere is nothing to inhibit him (Obama) from a far left agenda that is the wrong agenda certainly in the Middle East,â stated Inhofe. âNow I think thatâs one reason that he would want to have Chuck Hagel.â
Continued Inhofe: âNow again I like Chuck Hagel. He was a war hero and he made his sacrifices more than I did in the service. But philosophically he is right along with Obama and I can see Obama saying, âWell here is a conservative Republican former senator who agrees with me on all this so this is bipartisan.â”
âWell I donât want that label of bipartisanship to follow on all of his policy toward North Korea, Syria, Iran and even Egypt. So I am very much concerned about giving him that added impetus to do the things that I think are destroying America.â
Inhofe said Obamaâs second term foreign and military policies will be more dangerous than those of the first four years.
The senator told Klein: âYou heard like everyone else did when the mic was left on and he was talking to Mevdeved. And he said, âYou can tell Putin that once I get this election behind me and once I am reelected I will have more latitude to do these things.â And so I look for worse and not better coming from the president.â
Hagel blasted Obamaâs 2009 address to the Islamic world from Cairo where he said Obama made âall of the entrees onto the terrorists.â
âAnd I just donât understand how it can get worse than that but I think it will get worse,â he added.
WND has produced a series of reports investigating Hagel.
WND reported Hagel sits on the board of fund that is the main financial backer of group urging the U.S. to join the U.N.âs International Criminal Court, which could prosecute American citizens and soldiers for âwar crimesâ and other offenses.
WND exposed Hagel serves on the board of the Ploughshares Fund, a George Soros-funded group that advocates a nuclear-free world.
The Ploughshares Fund has a long history of anti-war advocacy and is a partner of the Marxist-oriented Institute for Policy Studies, which has urged the defunding of the Pentagon and massive decreases in U.S. defense capabilities, including slashing the American nuclear arsenal to 292 deployed weapons.
WND documented how Hagel sits on the boards of numerous globalist groups that promote major increases in U.S. government funding for the third world.
Hagelâs group, the Ploughshares Fund, is the main financial backer of group urging the U.S. to join the U.N.âs International Criminal Court, which could prosecute American citizens and soldiers for âwar crimesâ and other offenses, as WND reported.
WND further reported how Hagel went on Al Jazeera in 2009 to argue that before dealing with the nuclear arsenals of rogue nations such as Iran and North Korea, the U.S. and Russia must first lead the effort by phasing out their own nuclear weapons.
Regarding his views on jihad, WND exposed how in unreported remarks during a 2007 Senate hearing Hagel posited that terrorism is not a belief but instead is a response to despair and a lack of hope.
