Navy Goes PC … The End of ‘Midshipman’? Navy Secretary Calls for Removal of ‘Man’ from Titles

UNREAL, REMEMBER WHEN THE MILITARY WAS ABOUT DEFEATING THE ENEMY AND NOT POLITICAL CORRECTNESS?

So the US Navy is going PC because some all of a sudden calling woman who serve in the Navy, Midshipman, is just too mean and makes them feel uncomfortable. The term “midshipman” has been used since the 1600′s, long predating the academy, which opened in 1845. According to the story, women first enlisted in the Navy in 1917, weeks before the United States entered World War I ,  as yeomen. But suddenly the use of the name “Midshipman” is no longer good. Has this country lost its mind and focus on the task at hand? The fact that our military is wasting any resources to something so silly and ridiculous is just incredible. What else would we expect with Barack Obama as Commander in Chief? So what will the Navy come up with, Midship-people, or maybe Midship-folks?

WTF

What happens when you take the “man” out of “midshipman”?

Navy officials will consider this question as they turn to language in an effort to fully integrate women into all levels of the service, including the Naval Academy.

Ray Mabus, the secretary of the Navy, issued a memo to the chief of naval operations on Jan. 1 asking for an “update of position titles and descriptions to demonstrate through this language that women are included in these positions.”

He also wrote: “Please review the position titles throughout the Navy and ensure that they are gender-integrated … removing ‘man’ from their titles.”

So what should it be?

Midshiperson?

Shipmate?

Just mid?

Chief of Naval Operations John Richardson assigned the Navy’s master chief petty officer to establish a group that will, Navy officials said, “canvass the fleet, talk with sailors to hear their thoughts and provide recommendations on feedback.”

I have an idea, how about the US Navy focus on their job of protecting America and not get embarrassed by having their sailors taken hostage by Iranians on the seas and forced to put their hands over their heads and surrender their weapons. Hmm?

Barack Obama Goes Golfing in Hawaii Terrorist Attack In Afghanistan Kills Six American Soldiers … Because It’s All About Him

SORRY AMERICA, BUT THE MAN JUST DOES NOT CARE …

Once again we are witness to Barack Obama’s lack of character, empathy any anything remotely presidential as Obama goes golfing on vacation after informed of a terror attack in Afghanistan that killed six American service members. Is there anything that would prevent this individual from going golfing? One has to wonder if Obama had been president during the Japanese Pearl Harbor sneak attack or 9-11 terror attacks whether this so-called president would have canceled his plans to go golfing? One would have to doubt it. But its the Democrat mantra when it comes to Americans killed under their watch … what difference does it make. It’s bad enough that Obama has acted like Air Force One is like an “Uber” ride, as the travel expenses are thru the roof, but could this man at least pretend like he cares about some one else more than himself?

Of course Obama would never stop his golf game and have to admit that Afghanistan is a failure, of his doing. The deaths of the six US servicemen was the largest loss of life of American troops in Afghanistan this year. The Taliban claim responsibility, you remember the same Taliban of which Obama swapped 5 Taliban terrorists for traitor Beau

Shhh … don’t tell anyone I am the greatest failure of a president, EVER!!!

President Obama is on vacation in Hawaii, where he was informed of a terrorist attack in Afghanistan that killed six American service members.

The attack was carried out by a suicide bomber on a motorcycle outside a U.S. military base, the largest loss of life of American troops in Afghanistan this year. The Taliban claim responsibility.

But the sobering news didn’t stop Obama from heading to the golf course, a tradition for the president as he enjoys the Hawaii climate during the holidays.

The president and three of his friends hit the golf course shortly after noon at the Mid-Pacific Country Club.

While Obama was on the course, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest released a statement in response to the attacks. “We express our deepest condolences to the families of the six U.S. service members killed and to all of those injured in today’s Taliban attack near Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and their loved ones,” the statement read, adding that the United States condemned the “cowardly attack.”

Unreal, the United States gets a statement from the White House press secretary of condolences to the family and that our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and their loved ones, as Obama is playing a sand wedge from the bunker? HUH? Oh yeah, he so cares, his actions are all we need to see to realize he just doesn’t give a $hit. Check out the pics at Breitbart.com where Obama can be seen making it all about him as he chips  it in on the 18th hole. What a poor excuse for a president, a commander in Chief and a man.

Sorry, this president lost me when he showed his true lack of character and decided to make fun of developmentally challenged Special Olympic athletes and made a joke of them. What a dirt-bag.

Comparing his poor bowling score … “It was like Special Olympics or something”

Sgt.Bowe Bergdahl to Face Court-Martial for Desertion … Faces Possible Life Sentence

THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES TO TRAITORS ACTIONS …

It would appear that the U.S. military is taking the Sgt.Bowe Bergdahl very seriously and has ordered Bergdahl face a court-martial Bergdahl is charged with desertion and endangering troops. Pretty amazing, seeing that the Obama administration hailed Bergdahl with praises of honor and distinction when he was freed. Of course what would you expect from this ‘Alice in Wonderland’ president. In May 2014 Barack Obama swapped Sergeant Bergdahl for five Taliban detainees who were being held at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. Brilliant.

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl Credit U.S. Army

A top Army commander on Monday ordered that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl face a court-martial on charges of desertion and endangering troops stemming from his decision to leave his outpost in 2009, a move that prompted a huge manhunt in the wilds of eastern Afghanistan and landed him in nearly five years of harsh Taliban captivity.

The decision by Gen. Robert B. Abrams, head of Army Forces Command at Fort Bragg, N.C., means that Sergeant Bergdahl, 29, faces a possible life sentence. That is a far more serious penalty than had been recommended by the Army’s investigating officer, who testified at the sergeant’s preliminary hearing in September that prison would be “inappropriate.”

According to Sergeant Bergdahl’s defense lawyers, the Army lawyer who presided over the preliminary hearing also recommended that he face neither jail time nor a punitive discharge and that he go before an intermediate tribunal known as a “special court-martial,” where the most severe penalty possible would be a year of confinement.

Monday’s decision rejecting that recommendation means that Sergeant Bergdahl now faces a maximum five-year penalty if ultimately convicted by a military jury of desertion, as well as potential life imprisonment on the more serious charge of misbehavior before the enemy, which in this case means endangering the troops who were sent to search for him after he disappeared.

Pearl Harbor Day 2015 … December 7th, 1941, A Date That Will Forever Live in Infamy

Pearl Harbor Day 2015 …  December 7th, 1941, a Date That Will forever Live in Infamy …

Pearl Harbor

Always remember, never forget … Today marks the 74th anniversary of the day the United States was suddenly and deliberately attacked the Empire of Japan and the United States would never be the same. So many lives lost at the hands of such a cowardly act. It was a time of innocence lost; however, Americans would strike back against their foreign aggressors and save the world from tyranny. We remember those brave men and women that died that fateful day. So many lives affected by that single heinous act; however, as history would record, Japan awoke a sleeping giant. That reprehensible, treacherous act unified a country and in fact awoke a sleeping giant that provided the resolve to win a war against the evil Axis.

God Bless the heroism of Our Greatest Generation!

FDR’s Pearl Harbor speech:

Yesterday, Dec. 7, 1941 – a date which will live in infamy – the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with the government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific.

Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in Oahu, the Japanese ambassador to the United States and his colleagues delivered to the Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. While this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or armed attack.

It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time, the Japanese government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.

The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. Very many American lives have been lost. In addition, American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu.

The Bombing of Pearl Harbor

Yesterday the Japanese Government also launched an attack against Malaya. Last night Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong. Last night Japanese forces attacked Guam. Last night Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands. Last night the Japanese attacked Wake Island. This morning the Japanese attacked Midway Island.

Japan has, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the Pacific area. The facts of yesterday speak for themselves. The people of the United States have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and safety of our nation.

As Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense.

Always will we remember the character of the onslaught against us. No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory.

I believe I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost but will make very certain that this form of treachery shall never endanger us again.

Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory and our interests are in grave danger.

With confidence in our armed forces – with the unbounded determination of our people – we will gain the inevitable triumph – so help us God.

I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, December seventh, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese Empire.”

Thank you to our Greatest Generation!!!
