The commander of a US Navy warship is apparently a not-so-sharpshooter. A commanding officer of the USS John S. McCain, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer, was mocked online after he was photographed holding an assault weapon with its scope mounted backward as he took aim at a target known as a “killer tomato.” Cmdr. Cameron Yaste “observes the live-fire exercise event. The ship is in U.S. 7th Fleet conducting routine operations,” read a caption posted by Defense Visual Information Distribution Service alongside an image of him holding up the weapon with the Trijicon VCOG scope installed backward while pointed at a large target balloon.

Obviously our military is becoming joke. Not good with the news this morning of an imminent strike from Iran to somewhere. Raise your hand if you didn't think something along those lines would be happening with Old Yeller in office.

This is typical of an organization run by simpleminded children/politicians and not professionals. The purpose of the military is to break things and kill people. It is not there to reform society,be inclusive or nationbuild. And this nonsense has gone on for too long to be stopped now. Lets just get used to sharia law given to us by our Chinese overlords...

Odds are, since he commands a guided missile destroyer, firing a rifle isn't going to be necessary. Or maybe, he felt hitting a target with a scope on correctly was too easy and decided to make it a real challenge by making the object look ten times farther away.

I am the wife and sister-in-law of USNA grads. Their father was a Master Chief. #20 nails it. The picture is embarrassing but not surprising because the skipper of a ship would almost never need to use a rifle. In this case I would suspect the Captain is not popular with the very subordinates he relies on and is being made a fool publicly but I could be wrong.

The CO can't be expected to be setting up weapons, he just looked through what was handed to him by someone. I'm sure that the next thing he did was say "Why does everything look so small?" Whoever is in charge of weapons on that boat is a damned incompetent idiot. But, it's The New Navy, and the Chief in charge of weapons is probably a woman who pretends to be a man, or some similar freakshow escapee.

He was a weapons officer before his command. which erases the Navy knows ships not rifles. Besides the Navy used to have basics rifle training. If it was a prank still doesn't help him. He took control of that weapon, he was responsible for it. This captain needs to be sent to some dar land Nav y base where he will only be responsible for shooing seagulls away from the mess hall.

I'm no navy vet, but seems to me that if an enemy were close enough for a rifle to be effective as a defensive weapon (the skipper does seem to be standing on the deck of his ship), that enemy would have already exhaused their full inventory of longer-range weapons (cruise missiles, torpedoes, artillery, fighter-bombers, etc). In other words, that rifle would represent a sort of last stand, and the enemy would be so close-quarters that a scope wouldn't help that much anyway.

Kansas governor vetoes bill banning transgender

Kansas Democratic Gov. Laura Kelly has vetoed legislation that would have banned gender-affirming care treatment for minors. “This divisive legislation targets a small group of Kansans by placing government mandates on them and dictating to parents how to best raise and care for their children,” Kelly said in a statement Friday, announcing her veto. “I do not believe that is a conservative value, and it’s certainly not a Kansas value.” She added that the bill goes against parental rights and that the government should not be in "between a parent and a child who needed medical care of any kind.”

A California reparations bill prioritizing black applicants in state professional licensing is likely unconstitutional and violates the U.S. Constitution’s equal protections clause under the 14th Amendment, says the Pacific Legal Foundation. AB 2862, authored by Assemblymember Mike Gipson, D-Carson, would “require boards to prioritize African American applicants seeking licenses under these provisions, especially applicants who are descended from a person enslaved in the United States.” The bill was introduced in February as a broader package of reparations for Black Californians, a package that did not include direct cash payments.

Supermarket operators would also have to make "good faith" efforts to ensure the continued availability of groceries at their shuttered location, either through finding a successor store, helping residents form a grocery co-op, or any other plan they might work out by meeting with city and neighborhood residents.

Although invitations have not been formally issued, the news organizations said it was not too early for each campaign to say publicly that it will participate in the three presidential and one vice presidential forums set by the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates.

Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) commander, General Hossein Salami, on Sunday applauded the drone and missile attack on Israel, lauding it as more successful than expected before warning against any retaliation from the Jewish state or its allies. Salami’s boast came despite the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) saying it had intercepted the “majority” of the “dozens” of drones and cruise missiles sent to attack Israel, though a few hit targets, including an IDF base, as Breitbart News reported. Overall a swarm of over 300 drones, cruise missiles, and ballistic missiles were used in air assault by Tehran. Israel’s air defense systems were backed by assets from the U.S., U.K., and Jordan

On Saturday, Iran initiated a barrage of drones and ballistic missiles at Israel. Thankfully, most of them were successfully intercepted, causing minimal damage. Of course, in a stunning move, President Biden is pushing Israel not to retaliate. It's hard to imagine why Biden would do that, except when you consider that Joe Biden has been appeasing Iran since his days as Barack Obama vice president. With that in mind, it's also not surprising—though it's still shocking— that Joe Biden not only had prior knowledge of Iran's assault on Israel but also technically gave it the green light under certain conditions, according to a report from the Jerusalem Post.

The Iranian regime on Saturday launched a massive and unprecedented attack on Israel, firing over 300 projectiles, including drones, cruise missiles, and ballistic missiles, toward the Jewish state. It was the first time that Iran attacked Israel from its own territory, though the attack also relied on its proxies in Lebanon, Syria, and Yemen. Thanks to an impressive joint response from Israel and the U.S. (with help from allies including Jordan), nearly all of the projectiles were intercepted — even over Jerusalem, Israel’s capital. There was minimal damage to an Israeli air base, which remained functional, and sadly a seven-year-old girl from a Bedouin village suffered

Berkeley law dean Erwin Chemerinsky has never been a favorite of mine, but I love irony, and this week he’s my avatar of people whose actions have come back to bite them. He has publicly bragged, for example, how much easier it is to avoid anti-discrimination laws in his faculty hires than it is in student admission, tacitly admitting that is what he has done and what he encourages others to do. But that seems to be of no avail to him now that he’s become a target for the Left and Jihadists acting in coalition.
