I can’t understand how anyone involved in this thought it was a good idea but it’s not the first time lately that the military has bent the rules against service members playing politics while in uniform in order to embarrass a populist Republican. The Marine Corps had to apologize for unprofessional behavior a few days ago when one of its social-media accounts started snarking at Tucker Carlson for wondering why pregnant women are allowed to serve. The Pentagon went so far as to issue a press release responding to Carlson with the clickbait-y headline, “Press Secretary Smites Fox Host That Dissed Diversity in U.S. Military.” A Twitter pal recently observed

Guam’s representative is not a real voting Representative (nor is the Virgin Islands' or any other U.S. territory’s). This was a stunt. It was a serious mistake.

Because their "delegate" said so. Guam is where Nutty, Nasty Nan's hubby runs a giant tuna operation, and gets Nasty Nan to give him special laws to make his business better. Corruptocrats do that.

MTG made a MINOR faux pas about Guam. No comparison to stupid Hank Johnson thinking Guam would capsize with too many American troops stationed there. Some perspective, please.

I saw the video of Guam's arrival at Greene's office. Greene was not there. Her staff was very pleasant, and had no idea what was going on. The national guard members were all very young, and looked like they were not sure why they were there, all smiling and friendly. I would have taken it as a joke, took the cookies, said hello to Guam, and wished them a nice day.

So, big deal, MTG lumped Guam in with foreign countries. But Rep Hank Johnson (D-GA) was concerned that stationing some military on Guam might cause it to capsize and TIP OVER! Maybe San Nicolas should not have sent that Guam National Guard to the Capitol Building to embarrass MTG. Doing so could have upset the weight distribution on the island and made it unstable (;-)

Editor’s Note: In the wake of the January 6 Capitol riot, the Biden administration ordered the U.S. Navy to stand down its global operations and subject all members to what it characterizes as training to recognize and combat”extremism.” The piece below was written by an active duty military member who has about 20 years of service.

Understanding the military’s attack on Tucker Carlson 10 replies
Posted by Dreadnought 3/16/2021 9:34:16 PM Post Reply
The U.S. military is pushing woke, “social justice” leftism. Given the importance of this push, its otherwise bizarre attack on Tucker Carlson is not difficult to understand. Let’s step back for a moment. The left has been marching through America’s institutions for decades. The media was in the vanguard. Universities were captured easily. Corporations fell without much resistance. The military is a tougher nut to crack, but its leaders are drawn from a pool not that different from those who run universities and corporations, and these leaders crave approval from the same elites. Universities sometimes select presidents from the military brass.

During the last administration it was hard to go a week or even a day without someone decrying a supposedly appalling “attack” on members of the press by President Donald Trump. These assaults largely consisted of Trump objecting to loaded questions and other gasbaggery from members of the fourth estate. We expect politicians with partisan agendas to spar with journalists. Not so much members of the armed forces speaking in their official capacity, which is what happened last week after Tucker Carlson of Fox News dared to comment about the role of women in the military. The Second Marine Expeditionary Force responded with a snotty, childish tweet

President Donald Trump on Tuesday encouraged his Republican supporters -- one of the main groups resistant to Covid-19 vaccines -- to get their shots. "I would recommend it," Trump said during an interview on Fox News. "I would recommend it to a lot of people that don't want to get it and a lot of those people voted for me, frankly," he said. "It's a great vaccine, it's a safe vaccine and it's something that works." This was Trump's most explicit endorsement for the national mass vaccination campaign since he left office in January.

Georgia elections officials said their description of a much-scrutinized phone call between Donald Trump and a top investigator wasn’t meant to be presented as a “word-for-word transcript” after a recording of the call revealed the former president was misquoted. Deputy Secretary of State Jordan Fuchs told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Tuesday that the office’s initial report about the conversation between Trump and Frances Watson, the chief investigator, relied on Watson’s recollection. A recording of the conversation, located on a trash folder in Watson’s email account during an open records request, was released last week. It revealed that Trump told Watson she would find “dishonesty” if she scrutinized absentee ballots in Fulton County

On Monday, conservatives were outraged when the Washington Post, in a teeny little paragraph appended to a major story from January, admitted that the core of the story was a lie based upon false quotations. I find myself surprisingly unmoved. First, this is par for the course for the modern Pravda media. Second, as long as there are no consequences, and there never are, it's irrelevant that the Washington Post behaved in a morally corrupt, fraudulent way. This example of moral turpitude from the Washington Post began on January 9.
