A veteran member of the U.S. Army says he is facing retribution and punishment from the military for having anti-Obama bumper stickers on his car, reading books written by conservative authors like Mark Levin and David Limbaugh, and serving Chick-fil-A sandwiches at his promotion party.
Master Sgt. Nathan Sommers, a 25-year Army veteran and conservative Christian based at Fort Myer in Washington, believes his outspoken opposition to gay marriage prompted higher-ups to take a closer look at his beliefs.
“It seems like with the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell – that the Christians have been the ones who’ve had to go underground and in the closet – for fear of retaliation and reprisals,” Sommers told Fox News.
Rear Adm. Brian Losey, the head of the Navy SEALs, gave more than 30 years of upstanding service to the Navy before members of Congress stripped him of the chance at a second star, ending his career, legendary former U.S. Special Operations Command boss retired Adm. William McRaven argues in a Sunday op-ed.
The retired Admiral believes politicians have been disrespecting the military, especially leadership, since Obama came to power.
McRaven planned, and oversaw Operation Neptune Spear, the raid in which terror mastermind Osama bin Laden was killed.
McRaven writes in the Tampa Tribune:
Over the past decade I have seen a disturbing trend in how politicians abuse and denigrate military leadership, particularly the officer corps, to advance their political agendas. Although this is certainly not a new phenomenon, it seems to be growing in intensity. My concern is that if this trend of disrespect to the military continues it will undermine the strength of the officer corps to the point where good men and women will forgo service — or worse the ones serving will be reluctant to make hard decision for fear their actions, however justified, will be used against them in the political arena.
Take the recent case of Rear Adm. Brian Losey.
Adm. Losey is the commander of all Naval Special Warfare forces — the SEALs and Special Boat sailors. I have known Losey for more than 30 years. He is without a doubt one of the finest officers with whom I have ever served. Over the past 15 years no officer I know in the SEAL Teams has given more to this country than Brian. None. As a young officer he was constantly deployed away from his family. After 9/11, he was sent to Afghanistan in the early days to help fight the Taliban. From there, Losey participated in the final march to Baghdad and then stayed in country as a SEAL Task Unit Commander. Afterward he served as the deputy and then the commanding officer of SEAL Team Six during more tough fighting in Afghanistan.
Later he was posted to the White House in the Office of Combating Terrorism. He made rear admiral in 2009 while at the White House. He was subsequently sent back overseas to Djibouti, Africa, to do a 15-month month isolated tour as the commander of all U.S. forces in the Horn of Africa. As a result of that successful tour, he was given command of Special Operations Command, Africa (SOCAFRICA).
SOCAFRICA was a relatively new command, which had been established to address the growing threat in North Africa.
Located in the beautiful Swabian city of Stuttgart, Germany, it was initially staffed with military and civilian personnel from another nearby special operations unit. Although most of the men and women were incredibly capable, hard-working staffers, there was a small core who had been living in Europe for years enjoying the comfortable lifestyle in Stuttgart.
Upon Losey’s arrival in Germany, the situation in North Africa changed dramatically, and the fledgling SOCAFRICA had to quickly get on wartime footing. Brian Losey did just that.
Losey is a no-nonsense officer who knows what it takes to get results. Combat is hard. Lives are at stake. Being genteel and considerate of everyone’s feelings are not the qualities that will engender success. But although Losey can be a tough taskmaster, he is a “by-the-book” officer. Unfortunately for Losey, along the way to strengthening the command there were those who fought the change and through a series of whistleblower complaints sought to seek his removal.
At the time, I was the commander of the U.S. Special Operations Command in Tampa. I worked with Gen. Carter Ham, who commanded U.S. Africa Command and had operational control of Adm. Losey, to investigate the complaints.
The investigation we initiated determined that Losey’s leadership style, while brusque and demanding, did not warrant his removal. The Navy subsequently recommended Losey for two stars, and he was confirmed by the Senate in December 2011.
Although the Navy inspector general absolved Losey of any wrongdoing, his promotion was put on hold pending DOD inspector general resolution of the complaints. Nevertheless, the secretary of the Navy agreed to reassign Adm. Losey to the premier job in Naval Special Warfare — command of all the SEALs.
During the past three years as commander of Naval Special Warfare Command (WARCOM), his staff has consistently ranked WARCOM to be one of the best places to work in the Navy. He has passed all Navy IG inspections with flying colors, and the retention statics for his young officers and enlisted is exceptional.
However, in the course of those three years, the whistleblowers from Stuttgart continued to pursue Losey’s removal and resignation, routinely submitting new complaints to prolong the process and hold up his promotion.
A series of DOD inspector general investigations were reviewed by the Navy leadership and, once again, Adm. Losey was found not to have violated any law, rule or policy. In fact, it was clear to the Navy that the personnel action taken by Losey against the complainants was not reprisal. He was recommended again for promotion to two stars.
Despite the Navy’s multiple endorsements, certain members of Congress chose to use Losey’s case to pursue their own political agenda. They held hostage other Navy nominations until Losey’s promotion recommendation was rescinded. The ransom for their congressional support was Brian Losey’s career and, more importantly, his stellar reputation.
They portrayed Losey’s actions as a case of the big guy seeking retribution on the little guy-whistleblower. In fact, it was a case of a few guys fighting to maintain their comfortable life at a time when others were at war and needed their support.
However, in today’s environment, when a leader challenges a whistleblower, there is an automatic indictment of the leader’s character. Questioning the whistleblower makes you guilty until proven innocent. And it is clear in this case that certain members of Congress didn’t care about Losey’s innocence. Nor did they seem to care that he has sacrificed more for this country than most members on Capitol Hill — or that the emotional strain of this investigation was devastating to his family. It is clear that all these lawmakers cared about was political leverage.
The case of Brian Losey is a miscarriage of justice. But the greater concern for America is the continued attack on leadership in the military.
During my past several years in uniform, I watched in disbelief how lawmakers treated the chairman, the service chiefs, the combatant commanders and other senior officers during Congressional testimony. These officers were men of incredible integrity, and yet some lawmakers showed no respect for their decades of service. I saw the DOD Inspector General’s Office frequently act as judge and jury, apparently accountable to no one, dismissing the recommendations of the services and ruining officer’s careers. I watched time and again how political correctness and pressure from Capitol Hill undermined command authority and good order and discipline.
Although we in the military understand the absolute necessity to serve and respect our civilian leaders — and every good leader understands and appreciates the value of anonymous complaints to ferret out bad leadership — we also need civilians to understand that a strong military, particularly an all-volunteer one, needs the support of our civilian leaders, not the constant refrain of disrespect that seems so common in today’s political narrative.
Last month, after the decision to rescind Rear Adm. Brian Losey’s promotion recommendation became public, Losey addressed his junior officers. Instead of being angry and bitter over the outcome, Losey had nothing but praise for the Navy and the nation for which he has served so long. He encouraged the young officers not to get discouraged about the ruling against him, but to recognize that this is the greatest military in the world and we are fortunate to be part of it.
I would echo Losey’s sentiments. But to keep this the greatest military in the world, to preserve the strong civilian-military relations we have so long enjoyed, we must recognize that respect works both ways. Every time an individual lawmaker’s political agenda undermines the integrity of the men and women in the military, we weaken the fabric of the uniform.
In light of the challenging times in which we find ourselves, politically and strategically, we cannot afford to have a military that loses respect for its civilian leaders. My father was right. The strength of America always rests with our nation’s civilians. God forbid we should ever see it differently.
Retired Adm. William H. McRaven is former commander of the U.S. Special Operations Command.

Snoop Dog Announced He’s Officially Leaving The Country Because He Hates President Trump
Rapper Snoop Dogg’s hate for President Donald Trump is no secret as he simulated assassinating him in one of his music videos and is constantly outspoken about him. Like many liberal celebrities, he threatened to leave the U.S. if Trump became president and now one year after his inauguration, Dogg is packing up his belongings and leaving the country. However, he’s not going to like it where he’s heading and will soon be begging to return back home to where Trump has made it great.
Aging rapper Snoop Dogg was feeling pretty confident about inciting violence on our president in his recent music video, which depicted a clown character dressed up as Donald Trump, who the music thug ceremoniously assassinated at the end of the rap. Perhaps he was hoping that someone would take what he depicted in the video and actually assassinate the president for real or at least impeach him, but since he’s still in office and not going anywhere anytime soon, the aging rapper is giving up and getting out.
America Now reports:
Cordozar Calvin Broadus, Jr., better known by his rap moniker Snoop Dogg, took to Instagram to announce that he will be moving to Toronto, BuzzFeed News reported. He even reached out to Toronto native Drake for help finding a new home.
Alongside a photo of the CN Tower, Snoop Dogg wrote:
“My new home. @champagnepapi I need the hookup on some property. Nefew f*ck this sh*t I’m going to the. 6ix”
Snoop Dogg has also expressed his disappointment with the presidential election results with the use of Bitmojis, an app that allows users to make cartoon avatars of themselves.
Several Instagram users commented on Snoop Dogg’s post.
“Snoopdogg you can’t leave people like you helped make America what it is today,” wrote one user, Djdarienzo. “TRUMP did his part good or bad and you need to do your part and help to shape the country.”
“I know you could get a meeting with TRUMP if you wanted to,” Djdarienzo continued. “Don’t runaway stay and help to shape our country. America is the greatest country in the history of the world because people like you were willing to work hard.”
Others were less friendly.
“bye !!! take all of the other rybabies with you !” wrote user lularoemikeandebbie. “if republicians didn’t leave when obama was elected, because we are tough and had hope for the future. don’t comeback when you need the US.”
Snoop Dogg has a line of exclusive marijuana strains in Canada and a dispensary in Smith Falls, Ontario. Among the strains are sunset, ocean view and palm tree CBD, CBC News reported.
Snoop should do us all a favor and go to the socialist paradise of Canada. He thinks he has it bad here, he can see what real government control looks like that he seems to want so bad here. Apparently to him, all white people middle-class people are “clowns” to Snoop Doggy Dogg because the most powerful nation ever known to man was all founded and made successful by pot smoking black men who can’t sing so they speak songs.
In typical President Trump fashion he wasted no time to reply to original assassination video:
What does make this story even better is what the Secret service had to say. They put out a press release earlier this week stating they are aware of the video and that an investigation of Snoop Doggy Dog was imminent.
Of course in Snoop Doggy Dog defended the video in an interview:
“The ban that this motherf–ker tried to put up; him winning the presidency; police being able to kill motherf–kers and get away with it; people being in jail for weed for 20, 30 years and motherf–kers that’s not black on the streets making money off of it — but if you got color or ethnicity connected to your name, you’ve been wrongfully accused or locked up for it, and then you watching people not of color position themselves to get millions and billions off of it,” Snoop Dogg whined. “It’s a lot of clown shit going on. That we could just sit and talk on the phone all day about, but it’s a few issues that we really wanted to lock into [for the video] like police, the president and just life in general.”
“When I be putting shit out, I don’t ever expect or look for a reaction,” Snoop Dogg said of the video, directed by YouTube star Jesse Wellens. “I just put it out because I feel like it’s something that’s missing. Any time I drop something, I’m trying to fill in a void. I feel like it’s a lot of people making cool records, having fun, partying, but nobody’s dealing with the real issue with this f–king clown as president, and the shit that we dealing with out here, so I wanted to take time out to push pause on a party record and make one of these records for the time being.”
If anyone can translate what he said to English please contact us.
I didn’t even know Snoop Doggy Dog was still around since I can’t recall anything he has done since his first CD “Doggystyle” in 1994, and a brief guest spot he had on one of Katy Perry’s hits, “California Gurls” from 2010. I hope he is doing this for some publicity after being a nobody for so long and all that pot smoking really hasn’t affected his cognitive thinking skills badly enough to the point that this video seemed like a good idea to him.
The Missing Text Messages Between Two FBI Officials Have Been Located
BOTH FBI OFFICIALS ARE DONE!
The tables have turned on the FBI as they have now found themselves on the other side of the investigation as they have come under intense scrutiny after President Donald Trump fired his Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Two top officials in the agency serving on Mueller’s team became involved in a romantic relationship and as such shared damning text messages with each other about the president during an especially critical five-month time period.
With the investigation, they tried to hide what they said and thought they had successfully done so by deleting the texts in question. Unfortunately for them, just because they were erased, it doesn’t mean they’re gone forever, and now the messages between the Trump-hating FBI officials, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
Fox News broke the shocking update moments ago:
Text messages from a critical five-month period between Trump-bashing FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who both served on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team, have been located, Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz has told Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, and Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis.
This comes after the Department of Justice launched an investigation into Strzok and page who had a total of 384 pages of text messages between the two lovers that contained damning remarks and plans against the president.
According to the Washington Examiner:
The Justice Department has begun to retrieve some of the texts exchanged between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page that were said to be unpreserved, according to a new report.
Earlier this month, the Justice Department produced 384 pages of text messages that were sent between the two, but the FBI said that text messages sent between Dec. 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017, were lost due to “misconfiguration issues.”
Trump was breaking ground on immigration, then it all went to “shit”
But sources within the Department of Justice told Fox News that some of the texts exchanged from that five-month period are starting to be recovered.
Strzok was a top FBI counterintelligence agent who was part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia inquiry team prior to being demoted after it was revealed that he and Page exchanged text messages that were critical of Trump. He was then moved to a human resources position. Page also was previously a member of the special counsel team.
Strzok was also a lead investigator in the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized private email server.
The five-month period the Department of Justice previously had not been preserved includes the presidential transition period up to when Mueller was chosen to be special counsel.
The Gateway Pundit explains why this it’s so important to expose what these two lovers said. They very well could hold all the answers to the Mueller investigation:
Social media was set ablaze after these new Strzok-Page text messages were released to the public. What is even scarier to think about is the new explosive text messages are a separate batch from the 6 months worth of ‘missing’ text messages.
The timeline of the ‘missing’ text messages is highly suspicious. They begin on December 14, 2016 and go through May 17, 2017 which is the same day Robert Mueller was appointed as Special Counsel.
Imagine what the ‘missing’ text messages say about the Trump transition period, Russia dossier, “secret society” and moments leading up to Mueller’s appointment.
The most shocking thing we have found out in the new batch of text messages is there was a “secret society” of folks within the DOJ and FBI working against Trump.
The fact is that these messages were never really “missing” as has been said, it’s clear that this was a coverup.
USA Today reports:
While weighing the prospect of joining special counsel Robert Mueller’s team last year, a top FBI counter-intelligence official described the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election as a case destined for “the history books. ”
Peter Strzok, subsequently removed from Mueller’s staff last summer for disparaging President Trump in text messages, referred to the inquiry as “maybe the most important case of our lives,” according to a new release of his communications with FBI lawyer Lisa Page.
The latest batch of texts, released Tuesday by Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, suggest Strzok expressed some skepticism about the inquiry just two days after Mueller’s appointment as special counsel.
“I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern (that) there’s no big there there,” Strzok said in the May 19 message, before he joined Mueller’s staff.
The release of two pages of text messages exchanged between the two officials comes a day after Attorney General Jeff Sessions acknowledged that the FBI’s information system failed to preserve five months of text messages between the two officials, both of whom had worked on Mueller’s staff.
Strzok, who also helped run the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, was removed after the Justice Department’s inspector general first discovered texts in which Strzok and Page were harshly critical of Trump—in one message referring to him as an “idiot.”
Trump is doing as he promised and is draining the swamp! Everyone will be held accountable in due time.
BREAKING!!! FORMER PRESIDENT Just Accused Clinton Of RAPE on Them!!! (VIDEO)
THIS IS GETTING BAD!
The scandals in Washington, D.C. never seem to cease and are coming out in full view now that we have a non-career politician in office who is a threat to the establishment. President Donald Trump promised to drain the swamp and expose the crooks and thieves that have run this country before him and has been doing just that. Now, we’re learning of what’s perhaps the biggest Clinton secret yet that the dishonest duo tried to hide, but the truth caught up with them. A former president just accused Clinton of rape because he now feels comfortable enough to make that announcement knowing that Trump is in office who isn’t going to let such a damning allegation slide.
The storm that hit Haiti and caused a massive amount of destruction to the impoverished island and loss of life was nothing like what ensued after. While the left has been largely focused on Trump allegedly referring to the third world socialist country as a “shithole,” which, if he did, would be an accurate description, they have completely missed the real issues that have festered in the aftermath of what hit Haiti. Worse than the hurricane hitting was the Clintons who came in behind them with false promises and now accusations of rape.
Bill and Hillary took in a lot of money on claims that it was to go to recover this so-called “shothole” and restore life for the victims. In actuality, they saw an opportunity in a weak nation’s tragedy. Lacking all character, they took the cash that could have helped Haitians and instead used it for their own personal interests. We’ve previously reported of two deaths that came from whistleblowers or charity workers who knew too much. Now, more demise is coming from this horrific situation and what the Clintons forced upon the Haitians.
Former Senate President of Haiti, Bernard Sansaricq, has come out criticizing Bill and Hillary Clinton for “raping and pillaging my beloved Haiti“, and is urging President Trump to investigate the financial affairs of the Clinton Foundation, and the gross misappropriations of funds within it.
Your News Wire reports:
Appearing at an event in Little Haiti, Florida, Donald Trump gave Bernard Sansaricq the opportunity to speak about the disastrous impact the Clinton’s had on Haiti in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake.
Bernard Sansaricq did not disappoint. Explaining he has “nothing left to lose“, he launched into an impassioned speech, detailing how Bill Clinton tried to bribe him, promising he would make him the “richest man in Haiti” if he used his position as Senate President to assist the Clintons in looting the island of its wealth.
Addressing Donald Trump and the Floridian crown, Bernard Sansaricq explained how the Clintons have abused their positions of power, and stolen billions of dollars in the process.
“In February of 1994 I became president of the Senate and I had to deal with the Clinton invasion of Haiti.
“I was working with American intelligence at that time. Clinton wanted to buy me out.
“I was hitting very hard on several fronts. To try to appease me he sent Bill Richardson who was a congressman at that time. I spent four hours with Bill Richardson.
“A week later the American embassy called me to tell me that President Clinton had sent a messenger for me. He did not give me his name.
“He said ‘Mr. Sansaricq you join our movement, you side with Bill Clinton and we’ll make you the richest man in Haiti.’“
Sansaricq then explained how the Clinton Foundation received billions of dollars from Bill’s corporate “friends”, who in return got preferential treatment in looting the island nation.
“Then in 2010, after the earthquake in Haiti not only American taxpayers but the whole world has given billions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation for the Haitians.”
But the Clintons conned the world. The thieves at the Clinton Foundation pocketed the money, giving a minuscule percentage to Haiti in its hour of desperate need.
“Not even 2% of that money went back to Haiti.
“So Mr. Trump, we are asking you, begging you, the Haitian community will side with you if one day, you ask Hillary Clinton publicly to disclose the audit of all of the money they have stolen from Haiti in 2010 after the earthquake.”
The Clintons leave such a trail of misconduct that’s only bound to catch up with them and has recently it has…repeatedly since Trump isn’t willing to let all these “sudden deaths” or any other allegations go. The victims of all kind that continues to accumulate around Clintons has reached unprecedented levels. They operate under the mentality that “dead men don’t talk,” which may be the case, but the evidence proves the truth. It’s just sickening and ironic that the outrage in the country right now is over a word used to describe Haiti and not the blatant theft from the Clintons who could have fixed it with the funds they raised but chose to keep it for themselves.
