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.

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.

Trump the previous day had caused a flap by claiming his predecessors ´didn´t make calls´ to families of the fallen.

Hillary Clinton slammed what she called "endemic" sexism and misogyny in America during an interview with Fareed Zakaria, which aired Sunday. Clinton, who was interviewed by Zakaria on his show, "GPS," said sexism was so inherent that she purposely hadn´t highlighted her career history of fighting for women´s rights when she ran for president in 2016. However, she admitted that with the benefit of hindsight, she "could have tried harder" to do so.

Hillary Clinton on Sunday defended NFL players who knelt during the national anthem, saying kneeling is a “reverent” position that is not against “our anthem or our flag.” The former Democratic presidential candidate, who was at the Southbank Centre´s London Literature Festival, urged Democrats to use the issue against President Trump. Clinton was embarking on a foreign trip to promote her book “What Happened.” She said people should resist “what are very clear dog-whistles” to the Trump base, pointing to the example of kneeling NFL players. “That´s what black athletes kneeling was all about,” she said in response to a question about ways to

The Clinton Foundation told DailyMail.com it will not return as much as $250,000 in donations from Harvey Weinstein, saying on Sunday the money had already been spent on the organization’s programs and used for charitable purposes. The foundation’s decision comes as politicians and philanthropic groups grapple with whether to return donations they have received from Weinstein, after numerous women stepped forward this month to accuse the movie mogul of sexual assault, harassment and rape. Over a dozen Democratic politicians have said they will give back or donate Weinstein’s campaign contributions to charity. The Clinton Foundation faced questions about Weinstein’s funding after Hillary Clinton
