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...

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.

Former Clinton Strategist: Mueller,
FBI Face ´Crisis in Public Confidence´
Fox News, by Staff    Original Article

Mark Penn, a pollster and former chief strategist for the Clintons, said Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the FBI are facing a "crisis in public confidence." On "The Story" Thursday night, Penn pointed to a recent Harvard CAPS-Harris poll that found 63 percent of voters believe that the FBI has been resisting providing information to Congress on the Hillary Clinton and President Donald Trump investigations. 54 percent said Mueller has conflicts of interest that prevent him from doing an unbiased job. Penn noted that those numbers do not reflect recent revelations about Mueller´s Russia probe, including that a top FBI official,

Kimberly Guilfoyle said new revelations about James Comey’s draft statement on the Hillary Clinton email probe show that the former FBI director "overstepped his bounds." Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, released copies Thursday of the edits to Comey’s highly scrutinized July 2016 statement. The document shows line-by-line edits, including "grossly negligent" being downgraded to "extremely careless." It also shows a change from saying it is “reasonably likely” to merely "possible" that “hostile actors” gained access to then-Secretary of State Clinton’s private email account.

The paper used during President Trump’s ceremony and photo opportunity Thursday, demonstrating how much federal regulations have increased since 1960, were all reportedly blank sheets of paper. Trump cut red tape attached to two piles of paper: one symbolizing regulations that were in place in 1960 and the other regulations that exist today. The pile representing regulations from 1960 consisted of approximately 20,000 sheets of paper, while the pile representing today’s regulations consisted of more than 185,000. "We´re going to cut a ribbon because we´re getting back below the 1960 level, and we´ll be there fairly quickly," Trump said at

A professor at Boston University has proclaimed Christmas carol favorite “Jingle Bells” to be a “racist song” and is urging people to shun the jaunty tune. Kyna Hamill, a theater history professor at Boston University, recently told the Boston Globe that the venerable Christmas song has a “secret” racist past that has been “systematically” hidden from Americans as they celebrate the Christmas season. “The history of the song has remained hidden behind its local and season affection,” Hamill told the paper. She continued saying the song’s “blackface and racist origins have been subtly and systematically removed from its history.” (Tweet/Video) Hamill

Alabama is one of the most reliably Republican states in the country. The last time a Democrat was elected was in 1992, and no Democrat has won more than 40 percent of the vote in a Senate race there since 1996. The closest election in recent memory was in 2002, when Jeff Sessions won re-election by a razor-thin margin of 19 points. Sen. Richard Shelby has won his last three elections by 35 points, 30 points and 28 points, respectively. So it takes a special kind of stupid to pick a candidate who can lose to a Democrat in Alabama.

Scandal: For 18 months, the FBI has been fixated on determining whether President Trump worked with Russia to influence the 2016 election. But explosive text exchanges between top FBI agents suggest it should be looking in the mirror. The text messages sent between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, which became public on Wednesday, provide a rare and illuminating window into just how rabidly partisan putatively nonpartisan law enforcement officials can be. In the exchanges, they called Trump an "idiot," a "loathsome human," an "enormous do-che," and said "this man cannot be president." When not berating Trump, they were praising Hillary Clinton.

Democrats´ shocking victory in the Alabama Senate special election undoubtedly has raised their potential list of seats they might win. If they can win in the Deep South, they can win anywhere. High on the list of reach targets is Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who is up for re-election in 2018. Hillary Clinton did quite well in Texas, only losing by 9 points (better than she did in Iowa) — as compared to nearly 28 points in Alabama. What´s more, Democrats have a solid candidate in the form of Rep. Beto O´Rourke from El Paso. It is true, of course,

The drama between Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and President Donald Trump has reached absurd heights. First, there was that rather tweet from the president, which was not out of the ordinary. He accused Gillibrand of doing “anything” for campaign contributions. Gillibrand said this was a sexist smear, despite the president using that line on pretty much everyone. This all is part of the ongoing sexual harassment reckoning on the Hill and elsewhere. Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) is gone, and Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) has signaled his intention to leave…whenever that may be. Gillibrand has called on Trump to resign, as
