Maybe that's it... dems and the left, yeah I know, maybe they don't have mother's that love/d them. I think it is clear that President Trump was loved by his mother, and I think his children all feel loved. Love and to be love is joy and happiness. Beautiful. What a wonderful man your uncle must have been.

"the loved one" hope that is on his headstone. beautiful. I don't ever think I will ever be known that way, although my momma did say she loved me... At Hillsdale College it is “Virtus tentamine gaudet” which translates as “strength rejoices in the challenge.” Heh, then again there's that toast I've used on occasion, narc, "Here's to those who wish us well, and those that don't can go to...." whatever, memory fades whenever I try to remember these things.

Condolences on the loss of your Uncle, narc; he must have been a sepcial man in your life for you to remember him so. ~~~~~~~ Yes, the rot run deep. ~~~~~~~~ Also, did you notice this line: the Gallagher family will continue to cast our ballots for those who actually support our warfighters and not some other agenda. With Marcus Lutrell supporting and now a clear sign from the Gallagher clan, it is as if a 'bat-signal' is shining over Gotham... VOTE MAGA-KAG

final from https://www.navytimes.com/opinion/2019/11/27/op-ed-navy-corruption-and-the-gallagher-case/ And don’t think for a second the bureaucracy ever admits it got everything wrong. Quite the opposite. Instead of an apology to our family for the home raid, months of unjust imprisonment and enormous legal fees, the Navy actually rewarded the prosecutors who lost the case. You heard me right. A team that spied, cheated, slandered and then lost a publicly humiliating case, received Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals. Who, again, is ruining good order and discipline? You dare chide the commander in chief’s attempt to clean up this mess? To any service member reading this: If it can happen to us, it can happen to you. The message your brass and bureaucracy is sending you is clear. You are disposable. When it comes to their careers or their political motives, they’ll send you to war and then railroad you, drag you through the mud, and sing songs of sanctimony while you and your family hang. Our family’s message to you is this. That flag on your uniform, and the Constitution you swear to protect, also protects you. No one, not even members of your own military, can deny you your rights, especially the right to due process and a jury of your peers. It is the only thing that saved my brother form a lifetime of unjust imprisonment. It also guarantees civilian control of the military. So while the brass rails about moral hazards and pontificates about good order, the Gallagher family will continue to cast our ballots for those who actually support our warfighters and not some other agenda. President Trump was right to intervene on Eddie’s case, and that should terrify every person wearing a uniform. (emphasis added) (The actual op-ed at the Navy Times link has many hyperlinks to various stated claims.)

more from https://www.navytimes.com/opinion/2019/11/27/op-ed-navy-corruption-and-the-gallagher-case/ For two years, Navy lawyers publicly painted Ed as a villain, blaming him for the death of an Iraqi girl when it was actually the enemy he was sent there to fight. And then their own witness, for all the right reasons, copped to the killing they pinned squarely on Ed. Preach to me again the dangers of moral hazards? At the conclusion of Eddie’s trial, the one, irrefutable fact was that it never should have happened. A true investigation by unbiased investigators would have quashed it before it began. It came as a surprise to most everyone that it was actually Eddie who requested the investigation. His officer in charge testified that, tired of rumors fueled by disgruntled subordinates, Eddie requested an investigation so he could clear his name and get back to work. If people had stopped to listen, to think, put their agendas and political pressure aside, the Navy would have been spared this saga and the reputation of a good and decent man would remain unblemished. But here we are, with Ed’s face plastered all over the news, everyone claiming to know who he is without having the first damn clue. No mentions of his awards, of the friends he’s had to bury, of the sacrifices a family goes through during two decades of service and eight combat deployments. He’s a means to an end for the machine, so who cares what he’s done or what he’s given? It’s pathetic.

more from https://www.navytimes.com/opinion/2019/11/27/op-ed-navy-corruption-and-the-gallagher-case/ Day after day revealed biased investigators, inept prosecutors, unlawful command influence — the list goes on and on. To see the full list, we filed a 16-page Inspector General complaint here. Special Warfare Operator Chief Edward “Eddie” Gallagher in Iraq in 2017. (courtesy photo) Special Warfare Operator Chief Edward “Eddie” Gallagher in Iraq in 2017. (courtesy photo) For nearly two years, the Navy peddled lies to news outlets that Eddie had shot a little girl and stabbed to death a dying ISIS fighter. But during the trial, it turns out those accusing him weren’t even in Eddie’s sniper hide. Those that were with him daily — Ed’s spotter and signals intelligence operator — testified every single one of his shots was legit and that it likely was actually Islamic State, not Ed, that shot the girl. As for the dying ISIS fighter, the government’s own witness admitted that it was he, not Eddie, that ended his life. And it wasn’t out of malice, but rather out of mercy so Iraqi security forces didn’t rape, torture and kill him anyway as he’d seen them to do before.

more from https://www.navytimes.com/opinion/2019/11/27/op-ed-navy-corruption-and-the-gallagher-case/ Where was their outrage when the Naval Criminal Investigative Service agents dragged my brother’s kids in the street at gunpoint in their underwear? (A fact NCIS denied to this very publication until under oath admitted that, yes, they did drag my nephews nearly naked into the streets of San Diego when Ed wasn’t home). Where were these critics when investigators admitted Eddie’s entire pretrial imprisonment was based on a lie, forcing him to spend eight months in a sex offender brig for nothing? Thanksgiving is nearing, so please imagine having to spend it like Ed did last year, greeting your kids in jail where they had to wear robes so they didn’t arouse other inmates. Where were these guardians of moral decency when prosecutors spied on our attorneys? When they hid exculpatory evidence? Illegally leaked slanted information to the media to taint a jury pool? Lied to members of Congress and then tried to cover it all up when they got caught? They were nowhere, because their outrage is hollow and they don’t have clue what they’re talking about. The moral hazard is a system that sends troops to war and then sacrifices them to some perverse political agenda when they return home. This is what the president is trying to fix. I wish the world saw Eddie’s trial. I wish people could sit in the gallery and witness as we did the accusations crumble, Ed’s accusers exposed for their deceit, and how broken the process really is.

https://www.navytimes.com/opinion/2019/11/27/op-ed-navy-corruption-and-the-gallagher-case/ from the op-ed: In this partisan environment, people were quick to judge President Donald J. Trump’s reinstatement of anchors to my brother, Special Warfare Operator Chief Edward “Eddie” Gallagher. Out of the woodwork came former military attorneys, indignant Pentagon officials and your typical Washington establishment types. Their views were mainly the same. The president’s actions were a moral hazard! What message will it send our troops? What of good order and discipline? I have one question for these people: Where in the hell were you the past year and a half? Eddie’s case and court-martial trial revealed a massive cancer within the military justice system, doing irreparable damage to troop morale that may last decades. I didn’t hear a damn thing from these harbingers of moral decency when that was exposed.

Hiho all,and good evening. regarding the last thread's topic "What Next With Gallagher And The Navy SEALs?" a very useful op-ed from Chief Gallagher's brother, Sean Gallagher, was published in Navy Times today: https://www.navytimes.com/opinion/2019/11/27/op-ed-navy-corruption-and-the-gallagher-case/ I thought I was watching the case fairly closely, but much of the information Chief Gallagher's brother documents was a surprise to me. This action against Chief Gallagher was finally put right by the CINC. The system needs to be scrubbed to make sure this never happens again.

I cannot fathom that the Navy/NavSpecWarCom who continue down the path of Trident Review Board for the other SEALs. Mentioned earlier that these are outsized men with outsized personalities, and outsized opinions. BUT, it would be a case of outsized stupidity to pursue a Trident review after the Gallagher imbroglio. I don't think even SEAL leadership is that stupid. Or, as Jim Croce wrote/sang: Yeah you don't tug on Superman's cape You don't spit into the wind You don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger And you don't mess around with Slim https://youtu.be/TajUFGstkk4
But the Navy, like the other services I suspect, but I observe the Navy more closely, has become infected with globalists. SAD ! BAD ! HULK MUST SMASH !
PRESIDENT TRUMP loves the Navy in particular, and all services more generally. Often when a guest in the Whitehouse, you'll see him with the Navy flag behind. President Trump is more 'image aware' than any president, ever. There's a message here, but the Nav doesn't have its receivers on. For example:
SEALs are outsized individuals, with outsized performance, and outsized opinions. It is no surprise, and also very unfortunate that the strain of 18 years of combat have magnified the fault-lines within the community. The issues start at the top, with poor behavior examples from, for example, retirees McRaven and Harward. Contrast that with retired SEALs Maguire & Kernan who simply continue to 'do their duty' in a principled & direct manner. ~~~ I wouldn't expect POTUS to direct that an aviator's wings be restored if those wings had been pulled because of lack of fitness to fly. I can see where the SEAL community might think the same with Gallagher. He won't deploy to combat again. It is his fondest wish that this be put behind him and that he be allowed to retire quietly, I think the date is 30 Nov 19. But, for NavSpecWarCom to consider pulling Eddie Gallagher's Trident now, after all that has come to pass is petty and vindictive--and well, just not that smart. Moreover, the POTUS has spoken, the Commander-in-Chief has issued guidance, it is the arrogant officer(s) & civilians between the CINC and Gallagher, who think they know better. Execute the Plan of the Day, or resign. Meanwhile, STFU. Spencer--don't let the hatch hit you on the ass on the way out. As for MT's friend's comment that senior SEAL leaders will retire in droves over this matter, NFW. If some do tender their resignations early, they probably would fall more in the mold of the political, globalist SEALs (e.g. McRaven and Harward.) The SpecWar community should welcome these decisions (if & when) to leave early. The force will be stronger without their corrosive example.

Said another way: It was not part of their blood, It came to them very late, With long arrears to make good, When the Saxon began to hate. They were not easily moved, They were icy -- willing to wait Till every count should be proved, Ere the Saxon began to hate. Their voices were even and low. Their eyes were level and straight. There was neither sign nor show When the Saxon began to hate. It was not preached to the crowd. It was not taught by the state. No man spoke it aloud When the Saxon began to hate. It was not suddently bred. It will not swiftly abate. Through the chilled years ahead, When Time shall count from the date That the Saxon began to hate. THE WRATH OF THE AWAKENED SAXON by Rudyard Kipling

JMH, the thing about armed insurrection is that rarely does it--if ever--proceed as planned, and rarely too, does it end without significantly more bloodshed than either side(s) anticipated at the outset. It is thought that one or two dozen or more assassinations and killings will slake the thirst, but if only such were true. The killings would likely start slow at first, immediately followed by calls from "elites" (political, business, civic, and religions, etc) for stopping the madness, and then proceed, gathering momentum and participants. Soon free-fire zones develop and old scores, dormant for centuries are, ahem, reconsidered & revisited. In the margins there are many dark alleys where things not discussed in polite company will occur. A taste for blood, seemingly impossible from a vantage of a warm fireplace on a cold autumn day, develops. And, well, once that taste for blood is acquired, it can be an addiction. Sound leaders of Grant's caliber are not as in evidence today, and the factionalism today is not as easily geographically defined as it was then. Across the internet area number of CWII scenarios.

Whelp, Miss M, cannot disagree with most of what you wrote. Howsomever, 1 - I'd like to think that "...it will run afoul of the law quickly" but I doubt that will be the case, and 2- doesn't matter how crappy the website is, the website and the USA Today article are, taken together, in my view a sort of a 'Bat Signal' to fellow communists and intentions and goals. It is a "how to" get money into the system, another money laundering mechanism. ~~~~~~~~~~~ A buddy of mine, whom I've known for decades, ran for reelection to the Virginia State House (8th District). Here's one of his graphics on how the funding battle evolved: The funds from outside, primarily NY and California was HUGH. This scenario will be repeated over and over for the 2020 cycle. Look at the soros -funded think-tank operating alongside the USG efforts in ukraine, another money washing machine for the dems.

I think the D of E is trying to undo the damage wrought by Trump's predecessor in the Oval Office. It would be great if after that it just commits suicide. Posted by: jimmyk | November 12, 2019 at 12:07 PM I sure hope you are correct, jimmyk, because as it is, I regard Mrs DeVos is one of the least visible of the cabinet members. After the initial confrontation she experienced trying to visit a school, I have not heard one word, read one headline about how the DoE under her leadership is trying to un-stuck the schools, how the DoE is trying to reduce its power and influence, how the DoE is working to return school control to the lowest, i.e. local community level. Why, I suspect that there are more employees in the DoE today than there were three years ago. I wish someone would prove me wrong. Again, I'm with you to the extent that I hope the DoE , unlike Epstein, kills itself.
