The Navy Is Doing WHAT?? *Open Thread* UPDATED

by

Update at the end of the post.

Yes, I am still on vacation with the kiddoes, who are still sleeping, I might add. But when I saw this story, it made my blood boil. I just had to put it up and y’all can discuss it or anything else on your minds.

And that would be the Lt. Commander from the Navy who may have shot the radical Islamist terrorist in Chattanooga possibly facing GUN CHARGES after he saved the lives of who-knows-how-many of our military and took out a terrorist.

Are you freakin’ KIDDING me with this crap???

Never mind that the entire policy of having our MILITARY be disarmed at MILITARY installations is the most idiotic homage to Political Correctness ever (okay, maybe one of the most since there are SO many from which to choose), but to then consider charging this HERO with gun possession charges when the Government still refuses to call this man a radical Islamist terrorist, is just insanity.

Here is the story from Western Journalism:

A Navy officer and Marine reportedly returned fire at the shooter who killed five service members in Chattanooga, Tenn., even though current policy does not permit military members to carry firearms on facilities such as those where the attack occurred.

[…]

The center’s commanding officer, Lt. Cmdr. Timothy White, used his personal firearm to engage the shooter during the attack, according to sources quoted in the Navy Times. A report from The Washington Post said that one of the Marines killed in the shooting might have been carrying a 9 mm Glock and possibly returned fire on Abdulazeez. The Navy officer could face disciplinary action for violating policy about possessing a weapon on the facility that was supposed a gun-free zone.

The investigation into the attack is ongoing, and authorities will not know if White or the Marine hit Abdulazeez until an autopsy and a ballistics report have been completed. The recruiting center, the other building at which the gunman fired, was reopened Monday.

The chairmen of both the House and Senate Armed Services committees, Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., have proposed a measure in this year’s renewal of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) allowing members of the military to carry firearms on base, they said in a joint statement. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

This just has me spitting mad. If it wasn’t for this Naval officer and a Marine, there is no TELLING how many of our military would have been killed during that terrorist attack. And they are thinking of CHARGING him?! Lunacy. Just lunacy…

That’s my take. What’s going on with you today?

UPDATE: This retired Navy Seal had something to say about the possibility of Lt. Cmdr White being charged (and it does seem to be a possibility according to this Military.com article):

    Good news. 🙂

    According to a post of Facebook and other social media sites, a statement reads, “Stories of Navy personnel being charges with an offense are not true. There is still a long way to go in reviewing the facts of this tragic incident, but at this time we can confirm no service member has been charged with an offense.”

    Couldn’t agree with this Kurt Schlichter post more! If the GOP can’t even fight the atrocities committed by the Planned Parenthood Monsters, what the hell use are they?

    If not agreed on other issues the GOP, if it is what it claims to be, should be, must be, united against such atrocities being committed with American Tax dollars. Any Republican that does not immediately condemn what these monsters have done should never get another vote from any decent citizen.

    The Dems are another matter. They don’t care about atrocities or monsters. They sold their souls to the party a long time ago.

    Time For Conservatives To Get Medieval On The Liberal Establishment

    There’s this great scene in The Godfather where Sonny explains to Michael that to take out an enemy you’ve got to get up close and – bada-BING! – blow his brains all over his nice Ivy League suit. No wavering, no equivocating, no messing around. That’s the kind of can-do attitude the GOP needs to start showing toward its enemies, starting with Planned Parenthood.

    Figuratively, of course. Quick, cue the next lie in a seemingly endless series of lies from these creepy butchers since these mega-Mengeles’ PR firm will doubtless tell them to claim that, “Conservatives are threatening to kill us!” If anyone would know about killing, it’s Planned Parenthood but, unlike its tiny victims, its members will remain intact with their organs unauctioned off.

    Listen up, liars: I’m advocating taking every penny you steal from taxpayers so that your twisted death cult withers into dust. I am advocating crushing Planned Parenthood by our Republican elected representatives ruthlessly using every element of government power at their disposal. And then I am advocating that they then do it to every other liberal chancre sore on the American body politic.

      No kidding. Those are very good questions – how in the world can we get this country back on the right track if they can’t make headway on these issues??

    Meanwhile Prezzy Pinhead is in Africa lecturing them. Not about the slavery that still goes on there, not about the multitude of human rights issues in every direction. Oh not our “leader”.

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      I happen to believe that ALL human rights are important.

      I happen to believe that when you separate them into neat little categories you get insanity like “black lives matter” movement. That leads to people who are offended when someone says “all lives matter”. Just my 2 cents worth.

    One more example of how corrupt these people have become. No doubt Chuck Todd doesn’t’ realize what a POS he has become and how far from being any kind of a “news” person he is. Another reason why I have so little use for most of the “media”.

    ‘Issues Guy’ Chuck Todd Has No Policy Questions For Donald Trump On Meet The Press

    Early the next morning after Dave Brat defeated House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a primary, Chuck Todd interviewed the victor by phone on MSNBC. Brat said he thought his first chat with Todd would be a chat about the successful campaign. But Todd had other things in mind. He peppered him with questions about policy issues.

    Chuck Todd is the ultimate issues guy! So imagine my surprise when the very same Chuck Todd interviewed Donald Trump by phone for the first time on Meet the Press this weekend.

    The ultimate issues guy literally didn’t ask a single “issue” question apart from what Trump thinks about Black Lives Matter. And Trump isn’t running for a seat in the House of Representatives. He’s running for president.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Oh, for heaven’s sake. Honestly, I don’t know why anyone ever considered Chuck Todd to be a real journalist anyway. He was never more than a propaganda pusher from what I saw back before he was promoted. He surely hasn’t changed his stripes since then…

  8. mcnorman Says:

    Argentina had this problem many decades ago. The military said enough and then we saw what happens when being ridiculous forces the hand.

    I don’t know if we are to the point where the military would ever do such a thing, but these stupidities sure make it plausible.

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      I wonder if even the military can help us given the number of officers in high places who are little more than government hacks. It’s not that I want to see a coup in this country – except by the voters. And I despair that most voters are too ignorant to see what is happening. Even those with their hands out perpetually should be smart enough to see that cannot go on forever.

      As Maggie Thatcher said, “sooner of later you run out of other people’s money.” (Paraphrasing – too lazy to go look up the actual quote.)

    The silly Hillary logo that just keeps on giving – to cartoonists.

  10. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    Unfortunately, it does seem to be a possibility that Lt. Cmdr White may be charged: http://www.military.com/daily-news/2015/08/04/official-not-ruling-out-charging-navy-man-who-fired-on-shooter.html?ESRC=eb.nl

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      Here again, where the hell are the Republicans? Where is John McCain’s big mouth? The left is evil and the right is gutless and corrupt. The country is in the hands of those who do not care about anything except their party and their power. Too many incumbents and not enough fear of the voters.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        No kidding – where the hell is he, or the others who served?? It is ridiculous that they are not standing up for White, though I think they have crafted a bill abt weapons and the military so there is that.

        I was talking to my nephew abt all of this. He was a Marine, and he is NOT happy abt this at all, especially since military personnel are being targeted here.

        It is astonishing to me that the PC crowd was able to disarm our MILITARY here. That is insanity.

    Defund Planned Parenthood Bill Defeated in Senate

    http://townhall.com/tipsheet/cortneyobrien/2015/08/03/planned-parenthood-vote-n2034063

    That was a given wasn’t it? McConnell made sure it took 60 votes, which he knew was impossible, instead of a simple majority.

    The vote was 53-46 with two Dems actually voting for it. But that takes little courage since they knew their were enough others to make sure it didn’t happen.

    Our country has become a monstrous cesspool. And the things I wish would happen to loud-mouth lying Barbara Boxer will send me straight to hell if I don’t stop it.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      I just saw an article at Daily Signal abt this with the Senators listed who voted yay or nay (Graham did not vote, Scott voted to defund). But yeah – that should have been a SIMPLE majority, just like the Dems did to the Reps when Reid was in charge. GRRR.

  12. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    Marge, to go along with the discussion on PPF and Women’s health, Mollie Hemingway has this informative piece: http://thefederalist.com/2015/08/03/fact-check-the-largest-womens-health-care-provider-in-america-is-not-planned-parenthood

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      There goes Mollie with those pesky facts. Lucky for the left that most media doesn’t bother to inform people.

      That image at the top of her column needs to be replicated again and again. We can’t make people read it but we can make sure the information is available. If they “don’t” know it’s because they don’t want to know. I’m going to print it and send it to the damn POS Barbara Boxer. Maybe that will calm me down.

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        It’s especially juicy that the info comes from the Dems. That makes me feel a little better because I really do not like thinking that every one in the Democrat Party is a monster. Just. Most.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        I thought that was mighty interesting too, Marge, that so much of that info came from the DFL. How abt that? And yet, as you noted, only TWO of the Dems voted to defund…

  13. kenoshamarge Says:

    I watched the panel on “Special Report” last night and was very disappointed in their discussion of Trump and his giant lead. Thomas Sowell explains it quite easily in his post today. Guess Baier, Stoddard, Hayes and Krauthammer are not only not as smart as they think they are, they aren’t as smart as I thought they were.

    The Trump Card

    With Hillary Clinton’s multiple misdeeds coming to light and causing her political problems, reflected in her declining support in the polls, both she and the Democratic Party have reason to be concerned. But both of them may yet be rescued by “The Donald,” who can turn out to be their Trump card.

    Donald Trump has virtually no chance of becoming even the Republican Party’s candidate in 2016, much less being elected President of the United States.

    The reason is not hard to understand: Republican voters simply do not trust him, as the polls show. Nor is there any reason why they should trust him, given his chameleon-like changes in the past.

    Why then is he the “front-runner” in the polls?

    One reason is arithmetic. When there is a small army of Republican candidates, each with a tiny set of supporters, anyone with enough name recognition to get the support of a fifth or a fourth of the Republicans polled stands out, even if twice that many Republicans say they would never vote for him.

      Love the toon, Marge. 😀

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      I missed it, though I think before they haven’t been very impressed by him. Maybe they think they need to tread more carefully now, I dunno. But yeah – I think things will shake out. As they have noted before, in previous campaigns, people did well (like Santorum) who came nowhere NEAR winning the nomination. That is for what I am hoping…

  14. foxyladi14 Says:

    Then there is this. 😆

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      Don’t want Boehner and McConnell weasels and don’t want Trump cockroach either. The sight of him literally makes my skin crawl.

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      At this point in time in 2011 Herman Cain was in the lead. Tells ya pretty much that who is in the lead this far out, especially with so many participants doesn’t mean much.

      I think the media keeps playing Trump up because they want him to be the candidate. Because if he is, whoever is the Dem candidate is a winner.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        Exactly, Marge. I think once the serious candidates are out there more and more, and Trump is pitted against the likes of Walker or Fiorina, people will get more serious, too. Hope so, anyway…

  15. kenoshamarge Says:

    Daniel Greenfield praises Bill O’Reilly and much to my amazement I agree. Has hell really frozen over?

    O’Reilly Has the Guts to Point the Finger Where It Belongs

    Did 70 more blacks murdered in Baltimore show that black lives matter?

    When do black lives matter? When white people take them.

    That’s the theme of #BlackLivesMatter, a racist movement which claims to care about black lives, but actually helps take them by weakening the police officers who are the only thing standing between armed gang members and black urban residents.

    Bill O’Reilly’s willingness to take on #BlackLivesMatter’s greatest hypocrisy, its lack of concern for the victims of black crime as it not only ignores them, but enables their killers, is important.

    #BlackLivesMatter claims that police shootings are black genocide. The closest things to black genocide can be found in Planned Parenthood and prison. The lawyer who helps put criminals back on the street is responsible for more black deaths than an entire police department.

    As O’Reilly pointed out, black lives can best be saved in Chicago by “flooding the zone with officers and stopping the madness. Yet those people will not do that, because they’re only interested in condemning white society. That’s all.”

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Dontcha just HATE when that happens?! I think O’Reilly is a blowhard, too, but he can be right once in a while. Thanks for this!

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        I know, isn’t it a pain when an old gas bag like O’Reilly is the only one with guts enough to take on the #Blacklivesmatter racists? I’m sure it caused Greenfield some angst too. Give him credit for giving O’Reilly credit. I’ll take credit for passing it on. 😉

        • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

          LOL – and I am more than happy to give you credit for it!

          Hey, at least O’Reilly now has the Black Police Chief in Memphis on his side, along with Sheriff David Clarke.

          Along those lines, did you see what former-officer-now-living-in-fear-of-his-life Darren Wilson said abt Brown? It was a good response to a truly assholic question: http://www.westernjournalism.com/darren-wilson-just-broke-his-silence-drops-13-word-truth-bomb-everyone-should-see/

          • kenoshamarge Says:

            It is so sad to me that a man like Darren Wilson, and his family, have their lives ruined because of a thug like Brown. I wish I could say I am not happy whenever I hear that some thug is shot down. I just figure it’s one less POS to make the lives of good people miserable.

            I’m sorry for the grief the Brown family will suffer for the rest of their lives. But they had to know what their son was. I feel far sorrier for Darren Wilson and his family. And it has nothing to do with race. It has to do with decency and character.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        Marge, that is the thing – Wilson was DEFENDING himself, and thanks to the professional race baiters, and I have to include Obama in that mix, this man and his family have been ruined.

        Meanwhile, there is a plaque to Michael Brown. THAT is also where we are in this country. We elevate the thugs, and demonize the decent…
