Navy SEALs ordered to remove ‘don’t tread on me’ Navy Jack from uniforms

The Navy Jack is the ‘don’t tread on me’ flag, one that has earned a revered place in America’s naval history and a beloved place in sailor’s hearts, through its use for over two centuries. This symbol of America’s naval ferocity has spanned our country’s entire existence, flying from the masts of the Continental Navy during the war of independence, to today’s War on Terror. In fact, an amendment to the Navy code called SECNAV Instruction 10520.6 clearly states that as of 31 May 2002 all ships are to fly the flag throughout the duration of the War on Terror.

So why would ranking SEAL commanders ban the historical symbol? Is the proverbial top bass banning the flag? Is President Obama?

Clearly the administration and sycophant “top brass” officers have degraded America’s military prestige; from hand-tying rules of engagement, to uniform regulations that make our military allegedly more compatible with foreign forces, to the banning of an awe-inspiring flag that traces its roots to the first U.S. Navy. We have a civilian-led military, but why should our ranking commanders be complicit in the administration’s war on it? Why don’t they stand up to Obama and his leftist cronies?

During my two deployments to Iraq, “Don’t  Tread on Me” was a phrase seen on nearly every uniform and platoon space — including mine. From patches to flags to large paintings on concrete barriers, our commanders themselves wore the insignia on their sleeves — until now.

This may be a little off topic....but I believe has relevance to the state of OUR union and its legislators Tyranny!

The general misconception is that any statute passed by legislators bearing the appearance of law constitutes the law of the land. The UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION "is" the SUPREME law of the land, and "any" statute, to be valid, "must" be in agreement. It is "impossible" for any law which violates the UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION to be valid. This is succinctly stated as follows "All laws which are repugnant to the UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION are null and void" -----Marbury vs Madison, 5 US (2 Cranch) 137, 174, 176, 1803

This is the law of OUR land.....obamacare as well as all other legislation that would abrogate the UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION, can not be upheld, nor any legislator that proposes such be respected, they have become treasonous and should be indicted to face a GRAND JURY and when convicted, delt with in accordance of the law of treason as trators to WE THE PEOPLE and our CONSTITUTION!!!

Marbury wouldn't be my choice of decisions to quote, as it marked the usurpation by the courts of a power not delegated them by the constitution, but the concept you speak of is sound.

 Well folks it just reveals how many voters are just ignorant, gullible fools that will fall for any false promises someone wanting power over them will make.  Unless he is stopped dead in his tracks, so to speak of course, we will become a socialist nation..

sounds like the ineligible treasonous war crimes racist ovomit the muslum butt kisser,and his boyfriend jarrett,had enough of this war crimes traitor ovomit/satan and his unconstitituional adminstration,then join us with larry klayman from judical watch in washington dc on tuesday nov19,2013,and we have emailed groups to join us,amac/wayne-nra/john birch society,not a revolution an evolution of we the people.we call upon all truckers/bikers/all legal gun owners/oathkeepers/10th amendment/all freedom loving,god fearing american veternas/citizens/all impeachovomit overpass groups.we have been emailing/faxing/phone calling our politicans,but all we get back from them is thank you for your views,they have stopped listening and caring long ago.god bless america

Smile and jump for joy Robert, they hear us and they know we know them. Fear is your enemy Robert, faint not. Smile you are not alone, the ride was bumpy and could get bumpier but we are on it. Once you know that, fear leaves your heart and you win.

Dee,

This has gone far enough.  I am sick and tired of watching these "things" take over our military, our freedom and our way of life.  No one will degrade our fighting men and women, of what they see as honorable and an inspiration to them.  If this honor dies so does our country.  But you know what, honor will always live on and now is the time to take a stand for the people that give us the ability to express ourselves freely.  Im calling on all of the veterans of our country, their families and their friends to finally demand respect for what they do!  Nobody has the right to remove something so sacred to them.  Can we organize a demonstration in support of all those men and women that preserve our freedom.  You are in a position of power and prestige and people look up to you as a leading voice for the Tea Party and ultimately the freedom of our nation.  I am calling on all the people who love this country and are blessed by GOD to live in this country to join in a demonstration as close as we can get to the White House and just give them a reminder of who this country is made up of!  No more faxes, phone calls or emails, if you lead people like me and millions of others like me, we will follow!  Tell all your contacts in Washington and throughout the nation that the people of the United States of America demand to have their voices heard in PERSON!!  If you present people like myself with an option to be proud of America, they and I will follow you.  We can talk and rant all we want but a physical presence is the only way of getting through to these people.  Just think, how many people in washington possess the same pride in their nation and are afraid to act upon it.  Dont Speak , Just ACT, make this happen and the media will be all over it like a frenzy because we all know they are just "looking for a good story".  Well, this story might just save our country!

With all this discussion about conventions, etc, I have a basic question. What makes anyone think the people can "make" Congress do the right thing? The only real way to change things is to vote almost (keep the true conservatives) all incumbents out. Replace them with people who will abide by the Constitution.

Hey James and Rev, maybe the rest of us are not interested in your personal feud.

Then skip those posts...simple.

Don, refresh my memory, I should care what you think, WHY? BTW, who appointed you spokesman for "the rest of us"? Just curious.

Don,

I agree with you.  Folks with an argument between themselves should take it to their Email account.

ALERT ALERT

OMG!!! Ruth Bader Ginsburg Voted Best Real-Life Hero At MTV Awards

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday was crowned the best real-life hero at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The 86-year old judge — whose 2015 biopic The Notorious RBG help cement her as a cultural icon among Liberals — beat out tennis star Serena Williams, WWE wrestler Roman Reigns, and comedian Hannah Gadsby to take him the award.

Though it wasn’t a clean sweep for Ginsburg last night.

The RGB documentary lost the “Best Fight” category for “Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. Inequality” to “Captain Marvel vs. Minn-Erva.”

The justice was absent from the ceremony in Santa Monica, California.

Last December, Ginsburg had surgery to remove cancerous growths on her left lung. She was released from the hospital in New York four days later and recuperated at home.

Earlier this year, Ginsburg missed three days of arguments, the first time that’s happened since she joined the court in 1993. Still, she was allowed to participate using court briefs and transcripts.

Ginsburg has had two previous bouts with cancer, in 1999 and 10 years later.

Flashback: Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Pregnant Woman Is Not A ‘Mother’

Celebrated liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg argued in an opinion released Tuesday that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.”

“[A] woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother’,” Ginsburg wrote in a footnote, which in turn responded to another footnote in the 20-page concurring opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas in the Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc. case.

As Breitbart News’ legal editor Ken Klukowski reported, the case concerned a law signed by then-Governor (now Vice President) Mike Pence of Indiana in 2016, which required that the remains of an aborted fetus (or baby) be disposed of by cremation or burial. The law also prohibited abortion on the basis of sex, race, or disability alone.

The Court upheld the first part of the law, but declined to consider the selective-abortion ban until more appellate courts had ruled on it.

In his lengthy opinion — which delighted pro-life advocates, and distressed pro-choice activists — Thomas wrote that “this law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.” He traced the racist and eugenicist beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, and warned that the Court would one day need to wrestle with abortion as form of racial discrimination.

In a footnote, Thomas attacked Ginsberg’s dissenting opinion, which argued the Court should not have deferred to the legal standard used by the litigants in the lower courts, but should have subjected the Indiana law to a more difficult standard instead, since it impacted “the right of [a] woman” to an abortion.

Ginsburg cited no legal authority for her claim that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.” The claim that a fetus is not a child is central to pro-choice arguments.
