My objection is that you are taking a bunch of facts in isolation and turning them into some wacky conspiracy theory without the slightest shred of actual connection.
At any given moment in human history, there have always been any number of bad things going on, and and even greater number of innocuous things going on. Not everything that happened in the past is a massive conspiracy, and there is no reason to believe things are any different today. I'm sure in the late 18th century some Indian shot at a Frenchman in North America. That doesn't meant the Indians were part of some conspiracy for or against the French Revolution.
The military stores old hardware in the desert. So what? It's been doing that since before I was born. When a tank or plane is replaced by a newer one, does it makes sense to immediately destroy the old ones, or go park it someplace? It takes a lot more time an effort to build tanks and planes today than it did in WWI or WWII. If a major war were to break out, the need for replacement equipment would quickly outstrip our ability to build it. Why wouldn't you want to field an older model rather than nothing at all?
There are bad "Catholic" theologians running around. So what? They've been doing that for longer than the U.S. has existed as a nation. How does that prove that Obama or any other politician is planning something evil?
There are leftists doing what leftists do. So what? How is that any different than 1848 when Karl Marx wrote the Communist Manifesto?
The military is transferring surplus hardware to other agencies. So what? They've been doing that for longer than I've been alive. Is it really a waste of taxpayer money to keep items that have been bought in paid for in the government inventory, or would it make more sense to just throw them away?
You've got a bunch of facts in isolation, none of which is particularly unexplainable or even all that ominus. If you want to build a coherent argument that somebody is up to something, you need to string them together with something other than an assumption that there is a conspiracy.
