Retired Major General: Sexual Assault
Allegations Against Hyten Lack Merit

Original Article

Heidi Brown, a retired U.S. Army major general, argued sexual assault allegations Gen. John Hyten lack merit in a piece for the Wall Street Journal published Thursday. "Army Col. Kathryn Spletstoser's accusations are graphic and nauseating. But they are discredited by evidence," Brown writes in the Journal. "I have reviewed the written record of the case, including a redacted report from the Army Inspector General Office, and spoken with people involved. I served at Stratcom headquarters in Omaha, Neb., with both Gen. Hyten and Col. Spletstoser, including at the time of one of the claimed assaults. While she confided in me over various issues,

Anyone here surprised? It is unfortunate that situations like this specious claim by the Colonel, and those against Justice Kavanaugh, do real damage to actual victims of sexual assaults. Crying sexual assault is getting to be like calling someone a racist. It loses it's potency and real victims pay the price.

A very dangerous person, perfectly willing to lie and do harm to others to try to gain power. She really needs to be prosecuted for these lies. False swearing of this type really needs to be punished severely.

It seems clear that this woman has mental issues. Why she is allowed to just keep making charges that are untrue. She should’ve discharged and carefully watched.

FTA: "But multiple witnesses claimed she became livid after Gen. Hyten told her she was prohibited from traveling with his detail until her toxic-leadership investigation was resolved. Her screams from his office were loud enough to alarm Gen. Hyten’s personal security detail, who rushed to the office." The only think I don't understand is why she wasn't fired (or committed) immediately.

The weaponization of false sexual assault claims. The criminal penalty of a false report of assault ought to equal the penalty of an actual assault.

I have a hunch that she was promoted up through bird Colonel by hinting that she would file charges...it is easier to promote and be rid of a nasty woman than to evaluate her honestly. I also have a hunch that we will see male homosexual officers doing the same thing.

As a young Sgt, I was accused of discrimination against a Airman who believed I was forcing her to mop the floors on Friday rather than one of the men. I was required to attend Sexual Harassment training, Discrimination training and was written up. My first opportunity to speak on the matter was standing in front of my CO at my Article 15 hearing. I presented the duty roster for the month. It was her turn. I was released. She faced no repercussions. A few months later my enlistment was up and I left, rather than continue the career path I had scoped since I was a child. Thank you '90s feminism. (Full disclosure, I understand that some of her peers did have a discussion with her concerning the merits of her actions. But her career wasn't damaged..mine was)

There was a secret meeting at a sidewalk cafe near the National Gallery of Art’s Sculpture Garden, a meeting that seemed coincidental, almost an accident, just two old friends running into each other on a warm summer day. One of the men was Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, the other was an emissary from the White House. Kennedy, 82, was determined to personally carry a message to the president without it being leaked. A day or two later, an armored car took him to the White House, where he told President Donald Trump that he was retiring. Ultimately, all hell broke loose.

The Democratic debates have been hard on Never Trumpers. The small but vocal group of Republicans and former Republicans who oppose President Trump has watched in horror as Democrats veered leftward, embracing "Medicare-for-all," virtually open borders, sky-high taxes, and other positions no conservative could ever accept. The Never Trumpers see disaster coming in the form of the president winning reelection over a Democrat who moved too far left for the American voter. So they issue warnings. The Democrats' performance in the most recent debate was "worse than farcical," the New York Times' Bret Stephens wrote. "It's tragic. It will make the Trump campaign's job

Trump donors whose names and employers were posted in a highly controversial tweet by Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro blasted the Texas congressman on Wednesday for what they described as a “ridiculous” stunt and, in interviews with Fox News, rejected his claim that they are “fueling a campaign of hate” against Hispanics. One of those Trump donors even revealed he's also been a supporter of local Democratic lawmakers—including Castro himself. Wayne Harwell, the owner of a local real estate development company whose name appeared on the list Castro shared on Monday night, told Fox News in a phone interview that he donated money to Castro’s congressional campaign.

After open carry went into effect in Texas on January 1, some businesses were inconvenienced by the size of the signs they had to put up, and other businesses were inconvenienced by the fact that they were forced to choose a side in a culture war when they mostly just wanted to sell hamburgers. But one corporation decided to punt the inconvenience over to a particular subset: its store employees. At Walmart, the official company policy regarding open carry is that customers are allowed to bring visible handguns into the store, but that store staff are responsible for verifying that the customer has a proper license for the weapon.

The Plymouth Superbird may have been a one-year wonder, but it remains a classic today. The aerodynamically-optimized muscle car was built for NASCAR’s superspeedways, where Richard Petty and others competed in it during the 1970 season before it was effectively banned from competition the following year. Petty won 18 races that season driving Superbirds and Plymouth Road Runners, but finished fourth in the standings behind season champion Bobby Isaac, who used the similar big wing Dodge Daytona on the fast tracks.

A year ahead of the US presidential election, exaggeration about global warming is greater than ever. While some politicians continue (incorrectly) to insist it’s made up, far more insist (also incorrectly) that we face an imminent climate crisis threatening civilization. During this week’s Democratic debates, Pete Buttigieg called 2030 a “point of no return,” Beto O’Rourke warned we don’t have “more than 10 years to get this right” and Andrew Yang claimed climate change has already moved beyond a tipping point: “We are 10 years too late,” he said.

The question of “What ails the US press?” is too big for one column or one case study. Holman Jenkins takes it up in his Wall Street Journal Business World column this morning in the matter of the Steele Dossier. Whence the allegations of the dossier? We still don’t know. The subhead to the column puts it this way: “The media’s lack of interest in the Steele dossier amounts to collusion in a coverup.” The lack of journalistic interest calls for an explanation. Laziness, stupidity, herd mentality, and partisanship all seem to have something to do with the utter lack of interest in what it’s all about,

The Baltimore murder rate is higher than the three Central American nations driving the border surge by migrants seeking to flee crime and murder back home. In an analysis of the murder rates done after President Trump criticized Baltimore Rep. Elijah Cummings over the weekend, Baltimore's was reported at 56 per 100,000. The city is on track for 340 murders. By comparison, said the Princeton Policy Advisors analysis, the murder rate in El Salvador was 50, in Guatemala it was 22 and Honduras was 38.(Snip for graphic)“That Baltimore's murder rate is higher than the most dangerous countries' in Central America is frankly appalling on many levels,

For most of the time that humans have existed, our ranks have grown really, really slowly. There were an estimated 4 million people on Earth in 10,000 B.C., and after the following 10 millennia, the planetwide population had only reached 190 million. Even in 1800, the total number of humans was still under 1 billion. The climb since then—made possible by advances in medicine, sanitation, and food production—has been astounding. By 1900, there were 1.65 billion people; by 2000, there were more than 6 billion. Just two decades later, the global population sits at 7.7 billion. But soon—or at least, soon in the context of human history—

It is true. President Trump really is the least racist person in the world. Just ask him. “I am the least racist person there is anywhere in the world,” he said this week. The problem is that late in his long and storied life, Mr. Trump made the fateful decision to take up work in the world’s most racist city to try his hand at the most racist occupation left in America today. He became a politician. Welcome to Washington, Mr. Trump. Of course back before he ventured down here to the swamp, Mr. Trump was courted and heralded for all the Benjamins and bling he had accumulated as a real estate

The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a report on Thursday that calls for letting agricultural land return to the wilderness and for people to eat more plants and fewer animals. The report reiterates the globalist organization’s claim that man’s use of natural resources to improve people’s lives around the world is making “global warming” worse and will make food more scarce, more expensive, and less nutritional. “The cycle is accelerating,” NASA climate scientist Cynthia Rosenzweig, a co-author of the report, said in an Associated Press report. “The threat of climate change affecting people’s food on their dinner table is increasing.”

For years, consumers have complained about slower, noisier dishwashers that produce dirtier dishes, the result of tighter federal efficiency regulations that the Trump administration is now seeking to unload. The Energy Department last month proposed a rule to create a new dishwasher product class that would finish a normal cycle in an hour or less by using less stringent energy standards than permitted under the current rules. Sam Kazman, general counsel of the free-market Competitive Enterprise Institute, which led the charge for the regulatory clean-up, said the ever-tighter restrictions on energy and water have produced machines that take twice as long without getting dishes as scrubbed

Despite the well-documented violence of the radical left Antifa group -- the Department of Homeland Security classifies it as “domestic terrorist violence” – not one of the 23 Democrats running for president would condemn Antifa when repeatedly asked by CNSNews.com over the course of 12 business days. The Trump administration did respond, within a day, condemning Antifa. In emails and telephone calls to the press offices and campaigns of the 23 Democrats running and to the Trump campaign, CNSNews.com asked the candidates to answer two questions about Antifa based on background about the group reported by Politico.
