Something is very wrong
with the US Navy

American Thinker, by Ed Straker

Recently, a sailor on the cruiser Shiloh started to behave erratically. He claimed he had the ability to shoot fireballs from his hands and that he had traveled into outer space. Despite his obvious insanity, no action was taken. The sailor, named Peter Mims, then hid aboard his ship, and no one was able to find him for a week. (snip) The command counseled him in 2015 for being late on qualifications. Yet that same year, he was listed as "must promote" in his annual evaluation. "His enthusiasm and motivation are contagious!" a supervisor wrote on his eval. "A rock-solid performer

My first thought in reading this was -- is Mims an affirmative action case?
This, my first thought was a problem in itself.

Once you start promoting folks who don´t deserve it, for various reasons, afirmative action or whatever, then you move incompetents into positions of power and they set a bad tone for the men training under them. This new crop of ten or twenty are ruined by the wrong treatment that they get from a single incompetent chief.
The system is probably shot through with people who didn´t earn it, can´t do their jobs. And it appears that the officers are being forced to accept this rather than try to push them out.
Again - root cause? Probably minorities or women who cannot be fired or treated like white men would be.

Just guessing, but affirmative action can totally destroy the military. Looks like it is happening.

I can´t say this is affirmative action or not. The comment about "must be promoted" is telling. I spent 20 yr. USN and I do know one thing for sure, if discipline is lacking and there is no pride in the service, everything falls apart no matter what.
This doesn´t happen overnight but it´s a culmination of years of neglect. I can recall being in the service during the time of the "peanut farmer" talk about miserable. I was so glad that President REAGAN was elected. One could almost feel the collective weight be lifted. Pride seemed to return quickly, much like the wind filling a vacuum. In this case the damage has been done for 8 years and add to that all the snowflake type sailors that they have today. Recipe for disastrous problems

#s 4 and 5 are right. Too often the standard fix is more money to fix broken stuff. As important as that is, the leadership factor is more important. My first thought is all the services are having a recruiting and retention problem. Hence, the modus operandi is to keep the snowflakes and malcontents on the rolls at all costs. My second thought is, who is going to stay in when the objective is not to win, but to pussyfoot around in hostile territory with a bullseye on his chest?

8 years of political correctness, 8 years of slamming the military, 8 years of undermining the military with socialist garbage. 8 years of questionable leadership CIC. And it´s not just the Navy. All branches of the military have been affected. As well as the FBI, CIA, Secret Service, DOJ every "law enforcement" branch of the government.

When that Admiral commanding out in the Pacific (used to be CinCPAC) claimed a few years ago that the biggest threat out there was global warming, I couldn´t believe it. Then I remembered who the "Commander-in-Chief" was.

Something is very wrong with the U.S. Air Force, as well. They seem to believe that our biggest threat is global warming. Several times a week military planes come from restricted air space to the East (White Sands Missile Range/Holloman AFB) and spray us with chemtrails. A cloudless day soon turns in to an overcast, with whatever they are spraying dropping on to us. This is happening all over the U.S.

No wonder President Trump surrounds himself with Marine Generals. The other services have sold out to the New World Order One Worlders.

We need to take control of language. If a handout can be called "unearned income", affirmative action should be styled: "unearned advancement".

When I entered the Navy in 1978 the post-draft military was all about retention, retention, retention. Commanding officers were evaluated solely on their re-enlistment rates. And despite the best efforts of junior officers to drum them out, the deadbeat druggies always held the trump card: "I want to re-enlist" - at which point the XO treated them like VIPs. (At least orders came with their re-enlistments, so they became someone else´s problem and not mine.) Per #5, there was a palpable change in culture after January 1981 but it sounds like the pendulum has swung back on a 40-year cycle. Given the intensity of current global operations combined with the scarcity of resources, it sounds like the incident on Shiloh is an example of microcosm of a much larger problem.

Sounds like the featured sailor may well be a member of a favored diversity group without knowing more. For a decade or so officers have figured out that when it comes to dealing with members of favored diversity groups that it is best for their career advancement possibilities to ignore the situation and if possible pass the troubled individual on to someone else. We have seen that happen time and time again. Hopefully over time President Trump will bring all that to a screeching halt.

The Democrats and their media allies did everything they could to defeat Trump´s tax cuts and reforms. They continually lied to the public in a bid to make them believe that less than half of the taxpayers would actually get cuts and that the bill was meant to benefit only big, rich corporations. Therefore, we got all sorts of articles, obviously fed to journalists by left-wing think-tanks and Democratic politicos, claiming that the tax cuts aren´t good or aren´t performing as promised. So, two weeks into a ten-year program, we are now hearing whining that all the promises of the broad-based

An excellent op-ed in the LA Times today by Kerry Jackson on why California - with its liberal politics and generous welfare system - is the "poverty capital of America." (snip) From 1992 to 2015, state and local governments spent nearly $1 trillion to help the poor. The state, with 12% of the American population, is home today to about one in three of the nation’s welfare recipients. Jackson then reaches the not so astonishing conclusion: "The generous spending, then, has not only failed to decrease poverty; it actually seems to have made it worse." One of the big reasons for this

Our first step in responding to the fake news firestorm about what Trump did or didn´t say about some African countries is to figure out what Trump actually said. Two leakers say he used the term "s---holes" to describe Haiti and African countries. However, the only person corroborating that as this is being written is a Democrat. Given that Harry Reid gleefully admitted to lying about Mitt Romney not paying taxes, it´s not irrational to question that Democrat´s veracity. We also know that the leakers were willing to hurt the U.S. in order to gain a partisan political advantage. The leakers knew

Note to Fusion GPS: If you´re going to mouth off to the media and ignore the public record, you´d better be prepared to have your confidential documents subpoenaed. That´s the takeaway from last week´s ruling by Judge Richard J. Leon, district court judge from the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, denying Fusion GPS´s request for a preliminary injunction against TD Bank. The injunction would have stopped the bank from complying with a subpoena for bank documents served by the House Intelligence Committee relating to the oppo research firm´s financial transactions with media and political clients from the period

Do I really have to explain President Trump’s strategy in reportedly using a vulgar expression to describe countries from which he believes the United States is taking far too many immigrants? (snip) Trump has forced everyone whom he outraged to repeat the words he wants to sink in with the public. The entire chattering class is now repeating that Haiti and some African countries and Salvador and other TPS abusers (changing a visa explicitly labeled as “temporary” into a permanent one) are bleepholes. The best of example comes from Trump’s sworn enemy Jim Acosta, who repeated the vulgarism in its

It´s a shocking claim made by a political insider: the Deep State is so opposed to draining the swamp that it will, if necessary, kill President Trump to prevent it. Roger Stone, a longtime Trump adviser and confidant, certainly knows his way around Washington, having worked as a senior campaign aide to Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and Senator Bob Dole as well as having held many other political positions. This proximity to the Deep State is what makes his claim, expressed in a recent wide-ranging interview with The New American magazine´s Alex Newman, that much more eyebrow-raising. Stone outlined three plans

A faint odor of desperation accompanies the latest revised plans for the monument to the greatness of Barrack Hussein Obama planned for Chicago.

Why Liberals Need to Look
Down on Conservatives
American Thinker, by Selwyn Duke    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 1/9/2018 9:53:09     Post Reply
A common theme among progressives is that conservatives aren´t just wrong; they´re dumb. Reagan was dumb. G.W. Bush was dumb. Trump is dumb. "Knuckle-dragger," "mouth-breather," "stupid," and "uncultured" are typical pejoratives hurled at conservatives, who apparently tend to live in trailer parks, require dental care, handle snakes, and marry first cousins. (snip) Any argument that may give them even an inkling that they´re wrong can induce a bit of panic and is thus quickly rationalized away – often as the rambling of uneducated, un-evolved mouth-breathers who just don´t know any better. This phenomenon is exacerbated by two related factors. First, liberals

NBC plans to televise any players who refuse to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl, but there may be nothing to show.

Ever since Donald Trump entered the political arena, his intelligence has been viciously attacked and his supporters have been labeled as moronic deplorables. In a recent Trump tweet, the president responded to the most recent attack by saying he is a stable genius. The mainstream media never bothered checking evidence of Obama´s intelligence before one historian declared him "the smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency", even though his academic records were sealed.
