DISGUSTING! U.S. Army FORCES ROTC cadets to wear red high heels to support the feminazi “rape” agenda

Army ROTC cadets are complaining on message boards that they were pressured to walk in high heels on Monday for an Arizona State University campus event designed to raise awareness of sexual violence against women. (Because this is so much more important than learning how to kill Muslim terrorists?)


Washington Times  The Army openly encouraged participating in April’s “Walk A Mile in Her Shoes” events in 2014, but now it appears as though ROTC candidates at ASU were faced with a volunteer event that became mandatory.


“Attendance is mandatory and if we miss it we get a negative counseling and a ‘does not support the battalion sharp/EO mission’ on our CDT OER for getting the branch we want. So I just spent $16 on a pair of high heels that I have to spray paint red later on only to throw them in the trash after about 300 of us embarrass the U.S. Army tomorrow,” one anonymous cadet wrote on the social media sharing website Imgr, IJReview reported Monday.

The Army has not tried to hide from the event. It promoted similar events in 2014 on its website, saying “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is open to everyone. We are trying to get maximum participation and even if they can’t be there, we still encourage them to make a donation.”


Mother of Navy SEAL killed in Iraq slams Obama ‘yes-man’ Gen. Dempsey for minimizing fall of Ramadi

MARC-LEE1Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, responded to reports that Ramadi, Iraq is on the verge of an Islamic State today by describing Ramadi as “not symbolic in any way.” The first Navy SEAL death reported in Iraq was that of Petty Officer 2nd Class Marc A. Lee, 28. Lee was killed on Aug. 2, 2006 when he was involved in a firefight against insurgents in Ramadi. He earned the Silver Star posthumously.


FOX News  In an open letter, mother of Marc Lee, Debbie, whose son Marc was the first Navy SEAL casualty in Ramadi, responded to his remarks today, calling for an apology from Dempsey “I am shaking and tears are flowing down my cheeks as I watch the news and listen to the insensitive, pain inflicting comments made by you in regards to the fall of Ramadi.”

“You sir owe an apology to the families whose loved ones blood was shed in Ramadi. Ramadi matters to us and is very symbolic to us. You need to apologize to our troops whose bodies were blown to pieces from IEDs and bullet holes leaving parts and pieces behind, Ramadi matters to them. You need to apologize to our troops who endured the extreme temperatures and battled the terrorists in some of the worst battlefields in Iraq, Ramadi matters to them.”

Apparently, no apology from Dempsey is forthcoming.


U.S. Marine ‘Gunny’ to receive Navy Cross for heroic acts in Afghanistan

navy-crossGunnery Sergeant Brian Jacklin will receive the Navy Cross this week for his acts of heroism during a 2012 battle in Afghanistan. The gunnery sergeant endured intense enemy fire in order to save his fellow Marines, the Military Times reported. The Navy Cross is the second-highest military decoration for valor that may be awarded to a member of the United States NavyU.S. Marine Corps, or U.S. Coast Guard (when operating under the Department of the Navy) for extraordinary heroism in combat.

Gunnery Sergeant Brian Jacklin

Washington Free Beacon  Gunnery Sgt. Brian Jacklin, of 1st Marine Special Operations Battalion, will be presented with the Navy Cross Thursday during a ceremony at his unit’s headquarters at Camp Pendleton, California.

Jacklin earned the award for actions carried out June 14, 2012, while serving as an assistant leader of a team conducting village stability operations in the Upper Gereshk valley in Afghanistan’s Helmand province, according to his medal citation.

That morning, the Marine special operations team was in a village compound when it suddenly found itself the target of heavy enemy gunfire. The attack left the team leader and another Marine critically wounded.

“Without hesitation, Gunnery Sgt. Jacklin seized control and orchestrated a counterattack,” his medal citation states.


After restoring communications that had been knocked out, Jacklin coordinated multiple air strikes on the enemy. At the same time, he helped evacuate the wounded. The evacuation required him to cross open terrain under enemy fire that was dangerous enough to force the aircraft tasked with rescuing the wounded to abort its first attempt at landing.

At that point, Jacklin began lobbing grenades at the enemy and directing the fire of his team. This allowed the aircraft to land and the wounded were evacuated.


“Throughout a raging battle all the next day, he provided vital intelligence, tactical assistance and deadly accurate personal fires,” his citation reads. “Throughout 48 hours, he inspired all around him as he led a vicious fight to defeat a determined enemy force.”

Jacklin, originally from Los Angeles, will receive his prestigious award from Maj. Gen. Joseph Osterman, commander of Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command, officials said.

During the same ceremony, five of Jacklin’s fellow team members will be honored with the Bronze Star with combat “V” device for their role in the battle. The honored include Gunnery Sgt. William Simpson IV, Staff Sgt. Christopher Buckminster, Staff Sgt. Hafeez Hussein, Sgt. William Hall and Sgt. David Harris, all critical skills operators, officials said.




BOMBSHELL NCIS report points to treason for Bowe Bergdahl for deliberate attempt to defect to Taliban

Screen-Shot-2014-07-10-at-1.34.18-AMA new report from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service indicates that former Army soldier Bowe Bergdahl had a “deliberate” plan to defect to the ‘other side’ when he abandoned his post in 2009, Lt. Col. Shaffer (Ret.) claimed.

The Blaze  Shaffer told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly he has been “in contact with two individuals” who have seen the report and were “part of the investigation and various aspects of it.” 


Essentially, there is clear evidence that he was ‘going over to the other side’ and he had a deliberate plan,” Shaffer said.  First, one of the reports says that he was going to go off to Uzbekistan. He had made contact with the local Afghans and wanted to be moved to Uzbekistan.” “The other says that he did move out with a purpose, he had Afghan contacts and he was actually trying to offer himself up to the Taliban,” he added. “Both are very severe.”

More importantly, NCIS report was concluded before Obama agreed to release five Taliban commanders to secure his release in 2014.


ARMY DESERTER and Muslim convert Bowe Bergdahl is skilled in the art of ‘taqiyya’ – the Islamic doctrine of deception and lying on behalf of jihad


Bowe Bergdahl told the military he left his unit in eastern Afghanistan in July 2009 intending to walk to the nearest U.S. military outpost to report wrongdoing, believing he could not trust his own commanders to deal with his concerns, according to sources familiar with the Army investigation.

Bergdahl alleges he was planning to report what he believed to be problems with “order and discipline” in his unit, a senior Defense official tells CNN. A second official says Bergdahl had “concerns about leadership issues at his base.”




Traitor Bowe Bergdahl has been officially charged with “desertion and misbehavior” but NOT treason

This convert to Islam is what Barack Hussein Obama exchanged for five Taliban terrorists, at least one of whom has already returned to the battlefield. According to intelligence reports, four of the five Taliban freed to obtain Bowe Bergdahl’s release are expected to return to the battlefield.


Berghdahl attorney Eugene Fidell reportedly told journalists that Bergdahl was presented with a charge sheet on Tuesday. In addition to the desertion charge, Bergdahl will also be charged for “misbehavior before the enemy.”

Townhall The United States Army announced this afternoon from Ft. Bragg, North Carolina that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will be charged under the Uniformed Code of Military Justice with one count of desertion with intention to shirk important and hazardous duty and one count of  misbehavior before the enemy by endangering the safety of a command, unit or place.

Last year President Obama held a ceremony in the Rose Garden with Bergdahl’s parents and touted the swap of Bergdahl as an important moment in U.S. history, arguing no American should be left behind on the battlefield. Screen-Shot-2015-03-25-at-2.27.37-PM

If convicted, the first charge of desertion carries a potential maximum penalty of dishonorable discharge, rank deduction, forfeiture of paid allowances and maximum confinement of five years. The second charge of misbehavior before the enemy carries a potential maximum penalty of reduction in rank, forfeiture of paid allowances, confinement for life. 


So, apparently, it is now the official position of the US military that the US government went out and traded five terrorists for a deserter. (He should have been charged with treason and hanged, but he won’t be. He should at least face life in prison, but he’ll likely be given 5 – 10 years, then probably pardoned by Obama before he leaves office. Six soldiers were killed looking for this Muslim POS)


National Security Advisor Susan Rice said during an interview with ABC News that Bergdahl served with honor and distinction. 

Not a single member of Bergdahl’s platoon came forward to defend him against desertion allegations. In fact they all contradict Susan Rice’s claim that Bergdahl “servered with honor.”

Shortly after the swap was released, many members of Bergdahl’s Afghanistan platoon came forward to accuse him of desertion. Allies of the administration questioned the integrity of the men for doing so. Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs at the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development Brandon Friedman suggested publicly that the platoon might be full of “psychopaths.” State Department Spokeswoman Marie Harf portrayed the allegations of platoon members as not credible and the men as liars. She refused to apologize for doing so.


Islamic State (ISIS) hackers call for jihad against individual American military personnel

hqdefaultQuoting the quran, “Kill them wherever you find them,” the Islamic State Hacker Division has released a list with the identity and locations of 100 American military personnel who they are targeting for killing.

1StopNews  “You, faithless US; You who worship the cross you, crusaders fighting the Islamic State , we say: ‘DIE IN HIS WRATH!’ “begins the statement issued by the Islamic State Hacker Division.


Islamic State hackers have posted the personal details of 100 U.S. service members they claim have taken part in the bombing of ISIS targets in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia and Afghanistan – and called on homegrown radicals to strike back.

The targets are military United States . The information managed filtering, address and photo of 100 members of its armed forcesMost are privates but some are high and mid-level officers as Raymond Kemp, Head of the Office of Inspector General of the Navy; or Captain Andrew J. Loiselle, commander of the aircraft carrier USS George HW Bush.

Photos and ID information of US military personnel put out by ISIS below is blurred here intentionally:


The group allegedly gathered the dossier from cracked military databases and made an open call for “jihad against the crusaders” using JustPaste.it, a Polish-based social network favored by ISIS propagandists. “You crusaders that fight the Islamic State, we say to you: ‘Die in your rage!’” the ISIS post said.


“These Kuffar that drop bombs over Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Khurasan and Somalia are from the same lands that you reside in, so when will you take action?” the group asks. “Know that it is wajib for you to kill these kuffar! and now we have made it easy for you by giving you addresses, all you need to do is take the final step, so what are you waiting for? Kill them in their own lands, behead them in their own homes, stab them to death as they walk their streets thinking they are safe…”

The black flag entry is a self-styled terrorist WikiLeaks titled “Target: United States Military.” It lists the name, unit and address of 100 U.S. Air Force, Navy and Marines – many of them pilots – along with headshots of each. One of the targeted is a Navy aviator from upstate New York.


“Oh, brothers in America, know that jihad against the crusaders not limited to the lands of the caliph, but a global jihad. Their war is not a war against the Islamic State, it is a war against Islam. These infidels who drop bombs in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and Somalia Khurasan are the same lands than you. So, are you going to do something about it? Know that it is their divine duty to kill these infidels! “he concludes.



Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol, engaged to Jihadi-killing, United States Marine Medal of Honor recipient, Dakota Meyer

Meyer was awarded the Medal of Honor in 2011 after repeatedly charging into a kill zone during a 2009 ambush in Kunar Province, Afghanistan in search of four of his missing Marines.


Meyer received the nation’s highest military honor for braving enemy fire in 2009 to recover 36 American and Afghan troops in Afghanistan. He was the third living recipient — and the first Marine — to be awarded the Medal of Honor for actions in Iraq or Afghanistan.

CNN  Wedding bells are on the horizon for Bristol Palin and 2011 Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer.


Meyer, 26, proposed to Palin, 24, Friday night at a Rascal Flatts concert in Las Vegas, Palin said on her blog.

“The lead singer, Gary LeVox, dedicated ‘Bless the Broken Road’ to us, and then Dakota got down on one knee and proposed!” she wrote. “It’s amazing to see what happens when you place everything in life in God’s hands.”

Friends and well-wishers congratulated the couple on the news. As one person said in a comment on Meyer’s Instagram, “This is so ‘MERICA that my mind is blown right now.”


Sarah Palin also congratulated the couple, noting that Meyer “flew up North” to ask Bristol Palin’s father and grandfather for her hand in marriage.

“Our families couldn’t be happier for Bristol and Dakota! We’re honored to welcome Dakota into our family. He’s an American hero and patriot whose service to our country — like all his fellow Medal of Honor recipients — has been above and beyond the call of duty; but even more important is he’s a good and kind man who loves Bristol and Tripp, and is loved by them,” she said on Facebook

“Yes, God working behind the scenes to turn beauty from ashes. Had tough circumstances in their lives not occurred, and had they reacted differently to those circumstances, they’d have never met.”

Meyer’s Medal of Honor Citation:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving with Marine Embedded Training Team 2-8, Regional Corps Advisory Command 3-7, in Kunar Province, Afghanistan, on 8 September 2009. Corporal Meyer maintained security at a patrol rally point while other members of his team moved on foot with two platoons of Afghan National Army and Border Police into the village of Ganjgal for a pre-dawn meeting with village elders.


Moving into the village, the patrol was ambushed by more than 50 enemy fighters firing rocket propelled grenades, mortars, and machine guns from houses and fortified positions on the slopes above. Hearing over the radio that four U.S. team members were cut off, Corporal Meyer seized the initiative.

With a fellow Marine driving, Corporal Meyer took the exposed gunner’s position in a gun-truck as they drove down the steeply terraced terrain in a daring attempt to disrupt the enemy attack and locate the trapped U.S. team.


Disregarding intense enemy fire now concentrated on their lone vehicle, Corporal Meyer killed a number of enemy fighters with the mounted machine guns and his rifle, some at near point blank range, as he and his driver made three solo trips into the ambush area. During the first two trips, he and his driver evacuated two dozen Afghan soldiers, many of whom were wounded.

When one machine gun became inoperable, he directed a return to the rally point to switch to another gun-truck for a third trip into the ambush area where his accurate fire directly supported the remaining U.S. personnel and Afghan soldiers fighting their way out of the ambush. Despite a shrapnel wound to his arm, Corporal Meyer made two more trips into the ambush area in a third gun-truck accompanied by four other Afghan vehicles to recover more wounded Afghan soldiers and search for the missing U.S. team members.


Still under heavy enemy fire, he dismounted the vehicle on the fifth trip and moved on foot to locate and recover the bodies of his team members. Corporal Meyer’s daring initiative and bold fighting spirit throughout the 6-hour battle significantly disrupted the enemy’s attack and inspired the members of the combined force to fight on.

His unwavering courage and steadfast devotion to his U.S. and Afghan comrades in the face of almost certain death reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service.

BRITISH COURAGE! Teenaged Army Cadets will wear their uniforms in public despite Islamic terrorist threats

01_NH08CCF_1134547kA 17-year-old Army cadet, Michelle Hughes (right), has chosen to defy terrorist threats by wearing her cadet uniform to and from school. All police and military personnel, including members of the combined cadet force, have been advised not to wear their uniforms in public due to increased risk of attack from Islamic jihadists.


Breitbart  Intelligence gathered late last year suggested that some jihadist cells in Britain were hoping to stage attacks similar to that which claimed the life of Fusilier Lee Rigby on the streets of London in 2013. Consequently, last December army chiefs issued advice to all cadets not to wear their uniform in public. The warning came a week after police and military personnel were similarly advised.


Andrew Halls, headmaster of King’s College School (KCS) in Wimbledon, southwest London, wrote to the parents of children at the school who belong to its Combined Cadet Force, passing along the military’s advice.

But Michelle Hughes, who already has 12 A* GCSEs to her name and has represented England at athletics, chose to ignore the advice. “I saw the email from the headmaster and so did my mum, but I was going to wear the CCF uniform anyway,” she said. “I don’t really feel at risk. My mum wrote back to the school saying that she had not brought us up to be scared of anything.” She added that a number of her fellow cadets had also chosen to wear their uniforms in public.


Her mother Rose Hughes, a single mother of four who came to Britain from Nigeria, said: “I am not going to be afraid of evil frustrated people. That is the way I brought up my children. I brought them up to work hard and achieve and fulfil their potential.

“There are crazy people out there who take their frustrations in life out on other people, but this country is peaceful and I do not want my children to be afraid. Let the terrorists be afraid, they are the ones who should hide.

“It is a wonderful privilege to be alive and to live in a country like Britain. Nothing is risk-free, but on the whole this country is safe. I want my children to be on the right side of life, to do the right thing and fulfil their potential. The only thing you have to be afraid of in life is fear.”


Halls said that he respected the decision, but felt that it was his duty to pass on the message.  “I respect Michelle’s mum’s message. I think it is admirable, but I would not want to enforce it if anyone did not feel comfortable with it. What would be really awful would be if we packed in the CCF because we thought it was risky . . . We have two boys in the sixth form on army scholarships and we are very proud of that.”

The CCF, founded in 1948, has almost 43,000 cadets divided into army, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and Royal Marines sections. There are more than 260 CCF units in British schools, of which the vast majority – about 200 – are within private schools.

The CCF says its aim is “to enable the development of personal responsibility, leadership and self-discipline”. Cadets learn an array of skills depending on which branch they join, but all are taught to drill and to fire the L98A2 5.56mm Cadet General Purpose rifle.


Thomas Garnier, who is both headmaster of Pangbourne College in Berkshire and the liaison between schools with CCFs and the army, said it was up to each school to interpret the advice given by the army to suit their circumstances. “Given the different situations schools are in, a school in an inner city might take a different view to a school in the country where pupils board,” he said.

In contrast with Kings College School, Richard Cairns, headmaster of Brighton College, said that all his pupils were instructed to change into their uniforms only once they had reached the school. “You have got to put the potential risk to children first,” he said.

Garnier commented that the decision to wear the uniform in public “does seem brave”, adding: “They [the cadets] have a right to say they are not afraid of this threat, to say: we are not afraid of people who want us to feel afraid.”

OBAMA REGIME scrubs major attack on the Islamic State (ISIS) in Mosul indefinitely

c85bb63aa66916f7c375f80aec1fb66bJust days ago, the generals were trumpeting plans to knock Islamic State (ISIS) savages out of Mosul, its most important stronghold in Iraq, in the next few weeks. Now, those plans are on indefinite hold. Fall is more realistic. But even that date is tenuous.

The Daily Beast  The U.S. military’s goal to retake Iraq’s second largest city from the self-proclaimed Islamic State has been pushed back several months at least, defense officials told The Daily Beast. That’s a major shift for the Pentagon, which recently announced that the first major ground offensive in the war against ISIS could come in the next few weeks.


Defense officials once hoped that Iraqi troops could move into Mosul by the Spring and reclaim the city from ISIS. Now, those officials say, Fall is more realistic. And even that date was tenuous.

“It is an Iraqi decision (sure it is) but we don’t want to do anything until they are ready and can win decisively,” a military official explained to the Daily Beast. “They cannot now.”

It’s another sign that the U.S.-led campaign against ISIS isn’t going nearly as smoothly as the American government had hoped. (There is no campaign, that’s the problem) At the Pentagon Friday, Defense Department spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby shied away from any kind of timeline, saying: “I can’t put a date certain…nor say April is out.”


A group within U.S. government pushed for a Spring offensive out of concern that the next opportunity to launch such a campaign would not be until the Fall. But these policymakers appeared to have been trumped by those fearing that Iraqi forces are nowhere near ready.

The shift away from the Spring began in the last few days, in part because officials could not agree publicly about whether the Iraqi forces would be ready for the fight. Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lt. Gen. Vincent Stewart told the Senate Armed Services Committee Thursday that it would be “six to nine months, best estimate,” before Iraqi forces could be able to launch a major counteroffensive against ISIS.


“When we talk about the six to nine months additional training, it is to deal with an urban fight, which is very, very different, very complex, requires a great deal of skill, great deal of precision to be successful,” Stewart said. (I guess the fact we have been training the Iraqi Army in urban warfare for at least 8 years already is irrelevant?)

Earlier this month, a U.S. Central Command official gave a briefing to reporters saying that Iraqi forces could be ready by April or May to launch an offensive to take back the northern Iraqi city of Mosul from ISIS, where the group is entrenched. ISIS has controlled Mosul since June, when Iraqi troops fled their posts as ISIS forces stormed the city.


The proposed offensive would take as many as 25,000 troops assigned to at least eight Iraqi brigades, the CENTCOM official said on the condition of anonymity. The forces would seek to root out 2,000 ISIS fighters, he added. U.S. forces would support that campaign by the air, but the CENTCOM official did not offer any specifics.

There were sectarian considerations, as well. The Iraqi divisions who would likely lead such a campaign are majority Shiite forces; Mosul is a Sunni-dominated town and such sectarian delineations are important to all involved. Many worried that Sunnis in both Iraq and the broader Arab world would not accept a Shiite-dominated military force leading the campaign.

Still others were angry that the U.S. military decided to telegraph the mission and the details of it. Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham blasted the announcement in a letter to President Obama, calling the disclosure a risk to “the success of our mission, but could also cost the lives of U.S., Iraqi, and coalition forces.” (McCain can’t seem to decide which side he’s on)




But have no fear, the State Department has a TWITTER hashtag offensive in motion:


VERY SAD: U.S. Marine, whose career was destroyed for urinating on Taliban terrorist corpses in Afghanistan, dies of drug overdose at 28

Urinating MarinesRob Richards, who left the military in 2013 under a cloud of controversy after video circulated of him and members of his platoon urinating on dead Taliban terrorists in Afghanistan, had his cremated remains buried with military honors at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia this month.

NY Daily News  “He served with honor … gave so much … and bled for our freedom,” a Navy chaplain said at the somber proceeding, as Richards’ mom, wife and grandfather, a veteran himself, looked on, the Washington Post reported. “Today we lay him to rest in a fitting place.”


Richards died last August of an accidental prescription drug overdose. He was 28 and survived three tours of duty in Afghanistan as a Marine sniper.

His wife, Raechel, found his body on the floor of their home in Camp Lejeune, N.C., after he struggled for months with opiate abuse, she told the Washington Post.

The couple planned to move to Orlando, Fla., where they would get a new start, away from the 2013 court martial that ended with Richards given a plea deal that reduced his rank to corporal and an honorable discharge from the military.

Despite his decorated career and dedication to his country, Richards’ time abroad was judged — and vilified — on the nearly 40 second video, released anonymously on YouTube in January 2012.

Richards and three comrades were filmed peeing on Taliban soldiers they had just shot dead. The killings, as well as the desecration of the bodies, were in retaliation for a Marine killed by the Taliban who had a limb severed and hung from a tree, according to former Sgt. Edward Deptola, who was Richards’s platoon sergeant.


Deptola was also court martialed in the incident and demoted one rank for his role.

“Someone said, ‘Piss on these guys?’, ” a Marine told the Washington Post while recalling what had happened years earlier in Afghanistan the night before the funeral. “And someone else was like, ‘Yeah, you know what, let’s piss on them.’  ”

 “Because killing them wasn’t enough,” Deptola said. “That wasn’t enough justice.”


Most of the Marines involved in the incident have spoken out, saying they have no regrets about what they did that day

Roberts, who didn’t publicly condone or condemn his actions, had shown symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder stemming from his tours but had “finally come to terms with” the fact that the video would follow him the rest of his life.

He felt backed into a corner,” his wife Raechel told the Washington Post. “He always said, ‘It’s all I’ll ever be known for.’ ”

She thought the couple had turned a corner and was prepared for a different life in Florida when tragedy struck. They’d briefly separated and he had gone to drug counseling for his pill addiction. 

Her husband’s remains were buried in a canister bearing a favorite Ernest Hemingway quote: “There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.”










No wonder Barack Hussein Obama doesn’t have a strategy for fighting the Islamic State (ISIS), he doesn’t have much of a military left anymore

Obama’s Pentagon is cutting thousands of officers from the military, citing the demands of sequestration (but not a penny was cut from his massive social welfare programs). Those being “laid off” include a number of officers on active duty, with “some receiving pink slips while on the battlefield.”


According to Fox News, “Roughly 2,600 captains or other officers have or will be laid off, with more expected.”
