The US Navy has fired a nuclear submarine's Commanding Officer, Executive Officer and Chief of the Boat for 'loss of confidence' after their vessel collided with an 'uncharted seamount' in the South China Sea. The $3.1 billion USS Connecticut's CO Cmdr Cameron Aljilani, XO Lt Cmdr Patrick Cashin and COB Cory Rodgers were relieved of their positions on Wednesday. A seamount is a mountain which rises from the ocean floor. A statement from the Navy said that the October 2 crash, which injured 11 crew members, could have been prevented with 'sound judgement, prudent decision-making and adherence to required procedures in navigation planning'.(Snip)Beijing today accused Washington


Can't a girl make a mistake? It's dark underwater; how were they supposed to know that a mountain might be there?

There is something wrong with our Navy. They have ran 3-4 ships into each other, or into the ground. Then their sailor saboteurs have burnt the ship up. At the same time, we have our ground forces abandoning $85B of equipment in Afghanistan. Our admirals and generals release articles every day about how they are stunned by advances made by the Chinese and Russians. Yesterday, it was the British beating them in training exercises. Only a few weeks away from thousands of our military forced out of the service for not taking the shot. If anything happens in the world, we are totally broke. There is no way to print any more money without completely destroying the currency. Biden is demented on top of being an idiot, and has zero following. Nobody is following Biden anywhere. The Australians have declared war on their citizens. The Europeans have closed down their energy production, so have none. Bottom line is the Chinese, Russians, Cubans, Venezuelans, and anywhere else can do whatever they like.

Submarine commanding officers are arguably the most underpaid individuals in the world. "Here. Take this $3B in facilities - including a nuclear reactor - and 150 employees and drive it around beneath the ocean surface for months at a time. Remain hidden at all times and under no circumstance can you call your boss for guidance or advice. One slip-up and you're fired."

Maybe it's time to start putting in windows on the subs like the submarine in the TV show "Seaview" from the sixties. I'll bet if they had windows in the front they would have seen that mountain. Plus, they could look out for all those monster sea creatures.

Uncharted undersea mountain? Don't they train the sub commanders in how to pay attention to the possibility of those popping out of nowhere? I thought that was what radar was for, to prevent these kinds of collisions. When you are more concerned with diversity training than proper care and function of our equipment like this Sub, things like this are bound to happen. Where these Obama promotions perchance? He only hires the worst of bad drivers for our Navy.

#21, hard rule in USN. Run a ship aground, your next command will be a base. Nobody ever ran a base aground....since it already is ground. BUT, if the board agrees that he seamount that they hit was is that a nav error? Hitting a charted or VISIBLE obstacle is inexcusable. Hitting uncharted items seems beyond the nav or helm capability to avoid. And please, don't say "why didn't they use sonar". Passive sonar just listens, and mountains make no noise. Active sonar gives of sound pulses, reflected back, and should have detected the obtacle. BUT the normal procedure is to have active sonar OFF at all times to avoid giving your position away to any naval assets within a large area who are listening with their passive sonar and not giving away their positions. There has to be more to this than we know, or it's just more USN stupidity. About half a century ago, a family member was CO of a USN ship involved in a collision. The USN skipper of the other ship was cashiered for his incompetent behavior after the relatively minor collision at sea. My relative was cleared and continued on to several higher levels of command, no stain on his career. THAT USN was hard but fair, but permitted no incompetents running their ships. This USN, I can't tell. Again, I ask, how do you avoid uncharted underwater obstacles when sonar is not to be used? ESP?

The lucrative $50,000-per-year journalist tax break that Democrats have tucked within President Biden’s multitrillion-dollar social welfare bill is estimated to cost taxpayers more than $1.6 billion over the next decade. A new analysis of the legislation by the Joint Committee on Taxation, a special congressional panel made up of 10 senior lawmakers from both chambers of Congress, found that taxpayers would be on the hook for more than $1.6 billion if the tax credit becomes law. The credit would allow “local news” outlets to receive a quarterly tax credit, “equal to 50%” of a journalist’s wages up to a cap of $12,500-per-quarter.

According to the RealClearPolitics transcription: "Let's get it straight. You said everybody coming across the border gets $450,000. The number I was referring to."

"If, in fact, because of the outrageous behavior of the last administration, you were coming across the border, whether it was legal or illegal, and you lost your child. You lost your child, [your child] is gone, you deserve some kind of compensation! No matter what the circumstances."
