Gallagher a chief again

Original Article

Posted By: StormCnter, 11/4/2019 1:36:43 PM

President Donald J. Trump has decided to restore convicted SEAL Edward Gallagher’s pay grade to chief petty officer, overriding a decision last week by the Navy’s top admiral, both Navy Times and Fox News learned. Although naval officials and Navy Times discussed Trump’s looming decision on Sunday, it was announced on the morning Fox and Friends show by network contributor Pete Hegseth, who said he spoke directly with the president about intervening in three war crimes cases. A week before Veterans Day, Trump’s move clears the way to free Army 1st Lt. Clint Lorance, who was convicted on a pair of murder charges for ordering his platoon to shoot

what a long damn twisted road of stupidity the USN has dragged these men over. This kind of "justice" is truly perverted. So happy our President stepped in. It's no wonder the enlisted personnel love him. They know he values them and their service. BTW, the attorney has the perfect name for his profession...........

I hope the AcDU military folks are seeing that, in a way not seen for over two decades, they've got someone in the White House who isn't going to stand by and let them get railroaded for political reasons or purposes; whether by friends or foes. Outstanding, Mr. President. Outstanding!!

Bravo Zulu! Mr President. War is about breaking things and hurting people, and the US SOF community is very good at that...when the pencil necks leave to their business. Turned down an overseas flying job several years ago during the Magic Idiot’s regime, primarily because I didn’t trust him or his minions. Been flying combat support missions for over a year now, as we have a real Commander-in-Chief at the helm (who knows how to hire and fire as required) If/when the shiff hits the fan, so to speak, I believe I know with whom the operational part of the military will side.

It's no wonder that the US Military loves Donald Trump. When you wear the uniform you are often at the mercy of complete idiots, which is the main reason that I did not make a career of the Navy. They train SEALs for years to be efficient and expert killers and then fault them when they do their jobs. Pure Lunacy.

You people are missing the obvious here. Most navy people, including the command structure/officers do not have any exposure to ground combat. Therefore, they do not understand it, and rule in odd ways, when dealing with those who fight on the ground..

In the Navy, no one escapes a court martial without being found guilty of something. Navy prosecutors' are notorious for tacking on charge after charge. My personal favorite: UCMJ Article 134. General article: Though not specifically mentioned in this chapter, all disorders and neglects to the prejudice of good order and discipline in the armed forces, all conduct of a nature to bring discredit upon the armed forces, and crimes and offenses not capital, of which persons subject to this chapter may be guilty, shall be taken cognizance of by a general, special, or summary court-martial, according to the nature and degree of the offense, and shall be punished at the discretion of that court.

After two decades of service! I don't know if it's even possible, but, I would have restored his pay grade, then promoted him to a higher grade for even more pay, and given him backpay based on the higher grade. Even if it meant making him an officer, dag-na-mit.

Same old Navy higher command. Find a scapegoat and cover up the brass. They did it to Commanding Officer McVay after sending his cruiser the USS Indianapolis out without destroyer escort, ignoring 4 SOS reports, doing nothing for days after not showing up on station and then waiting 3 hours to issue rescue orders after a passing patrol bomber found the survivors who were in the water for 5 days. McVay was the only one to be punished. Not the 4 officers on duty who heard the SOS or any of the other brass who failed to do their job.

Desperate Dems Drop ‘Quid Pro Quo’

As the hours of transcripts of witnesses in the Ukraine impeachment inquiry rack up and continue to underwhelm, Democrats and their allies in the media have seized on a new tactic. The old, archaic term “quid pro quo,” is about to go the way of the Dodo. In its place the terms “extortion” and “bribery” will fly about like hot air balloons in California wine country. Here we see the new terms in action from Rep. John Garamendi, D-Calif., yesterday on CNN. The supposed justification for this ramping up of the rhetoric is an amendment that Ambassador Gordon Sondland made to his testimony before the impeachment inquiry in which he said

A Clinton Democrat took aim at Sen. Elizabeth Warren's healthcare plan, comparing her "Medicare for all" proposal to the ceremonial suicides of samurais in Japan. In a Tuesday op-ed for the Wall Street Journal titled "Elizabeth Warren’s Health-Care Hara-Kiri," former President Clinton's deputy assistant for domestic policy William Galston questioned whether or not America is ready for the "big structural change" Warren has promised. He also wondered if Democrats would "be wise to bet that it is" ahead of the 2020 presidential election. "Now that Ms. Warren has released her long-awaited "Medicare for all" plan, there is no longer any need to discuss this issue in the abstract,"

Moved deeply, Jugan carried her home, put the woman into her own bed, and washed and cared for her. That night, Jugan realized her calling and dedicated the rest of her life to caring for the unwanted elderly. Word of her works spread quickly.

None of the top Democrats seeking the presidential nomination would beat President Donald Trump in Texas in an election held today — and neither would either of the Texas candidates in that race, according to the latest University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll. Joe Biden of Delaware, the former vice president, is running 7 percentage points behind Trump in Texas, as is U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont falls 5 percentage points short in a head-to-head with the president among Texas voters. And the two Texas candidates also lag behind Trump: former U.S. Rep.

In 2018, Democratic candidates waded into hostile territory and flipped 40 House districts, many of them moderate or conservative in their makeup. In almost every instance, their formula centered on narrowing their target profile by avoiding controversial positions, and focusing obsessively on Republican weaknesses, primarily Donald Trump’s abuses of power and attempts to eliminate health insurance for millions of Americans. The Democratic presidential field has largely abandoned that model. Working from the premise that the country largely agrees with them on everything, or that agreeing with the majority of voters on issues is not necessary to win, the campaign has proceeded in blissful unawareness

Measles is alarmingly contagious: It’s spread through the air and can linger in a room for up to two hours after an infected person has left. The disease is responsible for more than a hundred thousand deaths each year among unvaccinated people. What’s more, danger still lurks even for those who survive an outbreak. Measles not only weakens your immune system in the short term, bouts with the virus seem to wipe your immune system's memory, causing the body to forget how to fight off things that you may have already conquered. For some people, this so-called immune amnesia may linger for months to years after an infection.

In May, U.S. attorney general William Barr selected Durham, a longtime prosecutor with a résumé so sterling it nearly glows, to investigate the origins of the special counsel’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, and whether it was properly predicated. Some Trump fans believe there was a vast effort by a “deep state” of high-ranking intelligence and law-enforcement officials to smear Trump or hinder his campaign by creating a perception of corrupt ties to Russia. In late October, the New York Times quoted unnamed sources who said that Durham’s probe

At least three American women and six of their children were senselessly gunned down in northern Mexico on Monday in a massacre believed to have been carried out by cartel gunmen. The victims ranged in age from 8 months to 43 years old. They were all part of a Mormon offshoot community called La Mora, and lived in a small community in Sonora state in northern Mexico. They were travelling back to the U.S. in a convoy of three SUVS when they were ambushed, according to Utah's KUTV.
