Something is very wrong
with the US Navy

American Thinker, by Ed Straker

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 1/3/2018 9:15:47 AM

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?

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.

Someone is going to get killed.

What´s it like to feel powerless? A lieutenant in the Chicago Fire Department may find out. The fireman committed the grave sin of defending himself and his property from an aggressor. Now he is the target of a social media campaign to ex post facto punish him for having the audacity to protect what is rightfully his. Last summer, the unidentified firefighter left his Jeep idling on the West Side of the city (admittedly, not a bright thing to do anywhere in Chicago) when it was carjacked by 17-year-old Charles Macklin. The lieutenant, who is Hispanic, attempted to stop Macklin,

How´s this for sneaky? Sen. John McCain, not too long after seeking conservative and Republican votes in his failed 2008 bid for the presidency, went right after those same conservative voters without telling them, by egging on the IRS to ruin them. It´s the sort of political back-stabbing that defies belief, taking an active role in destroying the Tea Party, which was an authentic grassroots movement of local groups calling for smaller government. But sure enough, Judicial Watch has found McCain´s central role right there in the documents: Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen.

Think of the odds: every day, for years, the Southern Poverty Law Center has been cranking out studies, talking points, and direct mail (oh, sweet, sweet mail!) to show how black people are victims of relentless white racism, all the time, everywhere, and that explains everything. Just a few days ago, the SPLC declared that black-on-white violence is the "biggest lie" because everyone knows the real problem is white-on-black violence. But what crazy luck: The more the SPLC says black criminality is a myth, the more it just keeps happening. Isn´t that what you would call a day at the races, where

For years — decades, actually — the Democrats have been facilitating the invasion of our country by millions of people who are from, as President Trump once reportedly described them, “s—t hole countries.” The constantly cited figure of “11 million illegal immigrants” is a joke. It has remained constant for more than a decade, while new waves of illegal immigrants arrive annually. There are more likely tens of millions of them here.

The FBI is many things to many people, but seen from the inside where I spent my career as an FBI agent, most of all it is a bureaucracy. The evident abuses of the vast investigatory powers of the Bureau to surveil the campaign of Donald Trump has left a paper and electronic trail as it jumped through the many procedural hoops required for Spygate to unfold. Based on a clue from the Strzok-Page texts and my understanding of the rules the FBI has to play by, it is possible to piece together a picture of how and why surveillance

By any reasonable account, the historic meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong-un, resulting in an agreement pledging to work toward a stable and enduring peace (over six decades after the Korean armistice was signed at Panmunjom) was an incredible achievement. In fact, had Obama or Clinton achieved as much, we would expect a ticker-tape parade down Fifth Avenue. North Korea has agreed to completely denuclearize and has begun the process, according to reports of satellite imagery, and has agreed to return the remains of U.S. military who perished in North Korea.

The board of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) made the unanimous decision to change the name on Saturday, at a meeting in New Orleans. The name of the prize was changed from the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal to the Children’s Literature Legacy Award.

The boycott-Trump movement has resurged. Shannon Coulter, a brand and digital strategist, started the #GrabYourWallet hashtag in October 2016 to encourage people seeking a way to take concrete action against Donald Trump to boycott companies — large and small — that do business with his family. As a result, brands such as Nordstrom, Jet.com, and Gilt dropped Ivanka Trump´s fashion line last year. While Coulter has remained steadfast in her quest to encourage the other 62 retailers, nonprofits, and even a movie produced by Harvey Weinstein to ditch Trump products, the issue has peaked once more among consumers and
