Ex-Navy Seal's Video Features 'Choke-Out' Of Obama

A recent episode of Chris Heben's Seal Consulting online series leads off with Heben pretending to "choke out" the President.

When Chris Heben was trained as a Navy SEAL he must have missed the part about honor and who he serves, even after he's left active duty.

Last fall, Heben made the headlines for claiming he had been shot by three black men, but that claim turned out to be a bald-faced lie.

In December, Heben made the video at the top which leads off with a mock "choke-out" of a guy in an Obama mask.


Heben opened the episode by describing the situation at that moment.

"We're been consuming alcoholic beverages and coffee, and Mike's got a vapor rolling," Heben said. "So we've got like nicotine, caffeine, and alcohol on board and, so, you know what, this is, this is very real."

He then got down to the "real talk" and provided commentary on the CIA torture report that was released by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), who, he said, "in all her infimite (sic) wisdom has decided to release some bullshit, quasi-journalism article about the CIA torture techniques."

Heben and Lemire took turns talking about torture and defending the CIA's tactics. But the conversation eventually shifted to President Obama. Lemire said he had an early Christmas present for Heben -- an "interview" with the President himself.

The video then cut to a scene in which Lemire was wearing a costume mask of Obama. The conversation that ensued was sprinkled with patronizing jabs and references to popularized criticisms of the President.

However, when the fake "Obama" debuted a new military salute that included a dance move, Heben leaped across the couch and placed the masked man in a chokehold.

Yes, the First Amendment lets a former Navy SEAL who was trained at taxpayer expense do things like this. But at the same time, it's just another example of the conservative mentality that demands anything (or anyone) standing in the way of their goals simply be choked to death. Whether it's policy or people doesn't matter. Just get rid of them.
