NAPLES, Italy — The Navy on Monday dismissed two commanders amid allegations of misconduct, weeks before they were both scheduled to assume new commands. Capt. Ted Williams was relieved as commander of the amphibious command ship USS Mount Whitney, and Cmdr. Ray Hartman was relieved as commander of the amphibious dock-landing ship USS Fort McHenry, said Cmdr. Marc Boyd, spokesman for U.S. Naval Forces Europe/Africa. The Navy would not describe the nature of the allegations. Both investigations center on personal conduct, Boyd said.

Sounds a lot like the Stalin purges before WWII. Would like to know some specifics to warrant the changes, or else it could be purging and revenge.

Yup. I am thinking it´s those that were a threat to the current adminstration.

Anyone seen so many "misconduct/infidelity" charges EVER in any adminstration?

Between the Secret Service and Military ranks?

Commies are in control.

It´s called Stalin´s purges. Obama doesnt trust the military and looks to put his own loyalist in instead. Look for Janet Napolitano & David Axelrod types to people the flag ranks now, mouthing the glories of gays in the military, political correctness, birth control and all the other totems of the left. It´s going to get bad out there.

Practically speaking, military resistance is the only thing our rogue government would possibly have to fear.

I believe many do fall for the "It;s all about me" mentality when promoted. Many do not fall into the trap though.
Many more are getting ready to leave because Bamster is putting MORE of his Behind Kissers in place to move up the ranks. I pray for our Servicemen daily because we are a military family. Do Not think this is being lost on our enlisted troops. They have learned well from Benghazi- every man for himself. Now if those brass that willingly leave will speak up, corrections could be made.

Some of these individuals are solid experienced leaders. They will continue to be of high value in the future.

What we are seeing that since 9-11 the military has slacked in enforcing standards puting warfighting and retention first. Now we are slashing end strength everyone is looking for discrimanators to get rid of people.

In the Army they are doing this by refusing to let career NCO´s re-enlist if they had a blemishes as small as being being overweight or failing a PT test even if they overcame those issues and met the standards.

It might be interesting to track who gets promoted into these 22 positions. I´m guessing it will be a veritable "Rainbow Coalition" of females, Blacks, Hispanics, Middle Eastern and Gay "Military of Tomorrow" types.

The Norks recently fired a military commander by placing him under a pre-targeted Mortar barrage. Not the same..but similar.

Leadership begins at the top. It also fails from the same echelon. I held on from 1993-2001; can´t imagine what it must be like these days. And now there´s a $500 million budget cut looming on the horizon.

Williams was headed for the prestigious command of one of the few heavy aircraft carriers. He served as XO on a carrier. The path is - command of a deep draft auxiliary - then the the command of a carrier on the way to his flag.

Not much info on Hartman.

I don´t think this is a purge. These guys were pretty low on the feeding chain. They are three or four steps down from the four-stars like Ham, Allen, Sinclair, Patraeous and Ward

Many of these are due to zipper control problems.

Women on deployed ships don´t help zipper control whether Officer or Enlisted.

I suspect it is less purging than emptying command slots so the right people can be moved up faster.

The right people may be of a favored sex or race or sexual orientation. Or have the right political views. Or just be related to a VIP or big donor.

We can only speculate about specific cases. But more generally, in a regime like Obama´s the military will be corrupted rapidly.

In researching the reasons for the dismissals, I found that most were for administrative deficiencies and command and control inabilities. This what happens when pc runs amok in the services. Real men of character are avoiding commands because they are vulnerable to the pc regulations that are pervasive military regs. One fact also noted that four of five women commanders were relieved of duty because they did not command with strength and respect.
My conclusion is that the new USN commanders who can command are out there and they keep their commands close to their vests and do a really good job. It´s these 22 who failed to uphold the integrity of their positions as commander.

You can be sure that no one is getting three or four stars without being an Obama loyalist, but these command level firings are all due to sexual misconduct which is all due the women in combat and gays in the military thing which is quietly destroying our military culture like cancer,

Just 32 percent of military veterans who served in Iraq or Afghanistan approve of the job Barack Obama is doing as president, according to a new poll from the Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation. In a related question, only 42 percent of those surveyed said they believe Obama is a “good commander-in-chief of the military.” Forty eight percent said he is not. Veterans were asked a similar question about former President George W. Bush. Sixty-five percent said they felt he was a good commander-in-chief, while 28 percent responded he was not.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
