Colonel Who Reported Communist Cadet
Slams West Point Leadership

Daily Caller, by Patrick Granger

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/12/2017 2:54:19 PM

Retired Army Lieutenant Colonel Robert Heffington issued an open letter to West Point graduates earlier this week blasting the superintendent, commandant, and dean of the military academy for contributing to a “culture of permissiveness.” The letter was subsequently posted on the website of American Military News. Heffington told The Daily Caller he wrote the letter to the USMA Class of 1963 when several of its graduates contacted him asking how Spenser Rapone, a cadet espousing radically anti-American views, was allowed to graduate. “The Superintendent refuses to enforce admissions standards or the cadet Honor Code, the Dean refuses to enforce academic

No wonder Obama got rid of so many experienced officers during his reign. Looks like a deliberate decision to ruin one of the most heralded military academies in the world. Housecleaning is needed immediately.

Been aware of this for several years, can not believe conditions so bad at my beloved WP. Need a complete cleaning out of Admin. Honor violations were always a very serious breach of Cadet oath immediate separation from Corps overnite, gone by noon or sooner. Failing just one class, second exam failure, out the gate.
P/C environment rampant there. Now, just a very good looking lib arts school. Shame...

He should have been thrown out with a dishonorable discharge and that Professor who helped to convert him to Communism should be thrown out with him.

Already I no longer respect a degree from Harvard, an FBI investigator, a member of the Presidential Secret Service detail ... and now I will have to be unimpressed with someone getting admitted to West Point!
What next? Navy Seals?

If it´s in one, it´s probably in the other academies too. They should all be looked at and scoured.

Turning the military and the academies into a social experiment where political correctness was the norm and the warriors were systematically retired started under Clinton and was expedited under Obama. I am surprised General Mattis and General Kelly were still around. We need to put the warriors back in charge of both the military and the academies.

When affirmative action enters the picture, standards, by definition, decline.
I knew of a petite girl, who was admitted to West Point - perhaps because she is about 12 1/2 percent mexican american. And female.
She was eliminated due to physical inadequacy - apparently fainted after one of the multi- mile runs. -
It was not that long ago where she would not have been admitted.

Army Capt. Gary Rose, risked his life

Officially, retired Army Capt. Gary “Mike” Rose was never in Laos at the height of the Vietnam War. Rose, now 69, served as a medic in the Military Assistance Command Studies and Observations Group, an elite division of the Special Forces. It was so secret that, for more than four decades, he never spoke about it to anyone – not even the people he served with. Those that served with him, however, never forgot the bravery he showed during a four-day mission, called “Operation Tailwind,” in the landlocked country in September 1970. Rose, then a sergeant, ran through a hail

Former FBI Director James Comey’s ´secret´ Twitter account has finally been revealed after months of rumors linking him to cryptic tweets from the @FormerBu account. The account created a stir earlier this year when Gizmodo reported that it likely belonged to Comey. At the time the account used the handle @projectexile7. The account’s name has remained Reinhold Niebuhr. While the origins of the @FormerBu handle are unclear, Reinhold Niebuhr was an American theologian who died in 1971. Comey wrote a thesis on Niebuhr while a student at the College of William and Mary. The account’s first tweet was sent out on

President Donald Trump´s newest grandson hasn´t just inherited his grandfather´s famous surname. It seems Eric Luke - the one-month-old son of Eric and Lara - has also adopted Trump´s head of hair. The President´s daughter-in-law shared a cute snap of little Luke on Instagram on Sunday showing off his light-colored locks. (Photo) Her followers were quick to point out the similarities to his grandfather. ´Grandpa´s hair is awesome,´ one person wrote, while another said: ´He has his grandfather´s hair! #NextTrumpPresident.´ The tiny baby´s blonde hair is already a talking point within the family.

MSNBC aired a segment on Monday about President Donald Trump´s proposed border wall, which ultimately proved the U.S.-Mexico border needs a bigger wall. The Trump administration has approved the construction of eight prototypes of the border wall. These prototypes are nearing completion as the administration´s deadline approaches. (Snip) MSNBC reporter Jacob Soboroff went to preview the prototypes that are being built between two existing border fences along the U.S.-Mexico border. During the segment, Soboroff was interviewing border patrol agent Roy Villareal when several migrants were caught on camera jumping the existing fence into the United States.

WATCH: (Video/Tweet) AND WATCH DC’S VERSION (MUCH MORE ACCURATE): (Video) In the new ad, CNN showed a photo of an apple and insisted that even though people might try to convince you that it is a banana, it is still an apple. “This is an apple,” the video voiceover begins with soft piano music in the background. “Some people might try to tell you it’s a banana.

Bowe Bergdahl, the Army deserter who walked off his base in Afghanistan, is whining that the US treated him worse than the Taliban. The 31-year-old sergeant told British TV journalist Sean Langan in an interview reported in The Sunday Times of London: “At least the Taliban were honest enough to say, ‘I’m the guy who’s gonna cut your throat.’ ” That got him less upset than the “administrative duties” the Army assigned him while awaiting trial, he said. “Here, it could be the guy I pass in the corridor who’s going to sign the paper that sends me away for

Freelance reporter and political consultant Michael J. Hout tweeted a photo of Hillary Clinton using forearm crutches during a visit to Yale Law School Saturday. Clinton’s use of the walking aide comes after breaking her toe during a UK book tour to promote “What Happened.” Clinton visited her alma mater on the same day she held a book signing event at the Wesleyan R.J. Julia Bookstore in Middletown, CT. The bookstore had strict guidelines for book signing attendees — “She will sign a maximum of two books for each attendee and will not personalize books,” posted Wesleyan R.J. Julia Bookstore

The widow of fallen American soldier Sgt. La David T. Johnson appeared on Good Morning America Monday to discuss the death of her husband as well as the now-notorious call she received from President Donald Trump. Myeshia Johnson first told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that she has yet to receive full details about the death of her husband — — a soldier who was killed in an ambush in Niger by ISIS-affiliated militants — and has a number of questions over what led to his death. The consolation call Myeshia received from Trump has become a point of controversy this week,

Sen. John McCain appeared to take a swipe at President Trump in an interview that aired Sunday when he called out the “highest income” Americans at the time who found a doctor to say they had a “bone spur” so they could avoid the Vietnam draft. McCain was interviewed on C-CPAN3, American TV and talked about the war. The interview was wide ranging, but he mentioned the draft. “We drafted the lowest income level of America and the highest income level found a doctor that would say that they had a bone spur,” McCain said “That is wrong.

The business decision of the NFL to isolate and ridicule well over half of their fan (customer) base will easily, very easily, go down in history as the most stunningly stupid decision in the history of any American business enterprise. The vast majority of NFL fans held a middle-class, center-right, common sense, and patriotic outlook toward sports and entertainment overall. In essence most of the NFL fan base are/were positively MAGA-minded. It reflects the profound disconnect between the corporation and their customer base that the NFL didn’t recognize the danger in making social justice causes part of their business enterprise.

Let’s put the Uranium One scandal in perspective: The cool half-million bucks the Putin regime funneled to Bill Clinton was five times the amount it spent on those Facebook ads — the ones the media-Democrat complex ludicrously suggests swung the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump. The Facebook-ad buy, which started in June 2015 — before Donald Trump entered the race — was more left-wing agitprop (ads pushing hysteria on racism, immigration, guns, etc.) than electioneering. The Clintons’ own long-time political strategist Mark Penn estimates that just $6,500 went to actual electioneering. (You read that right: 65 hundred dollars.) By
