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.

Does Jarrett the communist come to mind? She controls the puppet strings.

WE TALK AND TALK, BUT NOTHING HAPPENS OR IS GOING TO HAPPEN. PISSES ME OFF.

Something is happening. It is the incremental takeover of the USA by communism. We can fax, we can phone, we can write letters, we can fuss and fume and until we remove the bastards by force from office , they will continue to go forth with their agenda. If we paid attention to the build up of guns, ammo, armored vehicles and Home land security forces by Obama, we would know that he is afraid of a revolt by the citizens. He is however, betting on our being too disorganized and weak by the time we finally have had enough that we will be easy to defeat. Once people revolt, he will declare marshal law and anyone who understands what that means will know what happens next. We are fighting the enemy within. To even talk of serious revolt is insurrection. We are at a critical point in USA history. God only knows where it will take us.

Correct.

Does anyone know how I can contact Wayne La Pierre. I'm in Montreal.(Louis Fortier.)

These people,  Jarrett, Obumbo, and the rest of the criminals are not real Americans.  They have no appreciation for this country or its history.  There is no patriotism in these people!  We have been infiltrated by enemies of America and the American way of life.  Whether the masses of people in this country know it or not......recognize it or not, this is war.....a struggle for the life of our country.

Hey John, you bet she does! BUT, BHO is the POTUS; and whether he wants it, or likes it or not - THE BUCK STOPS WITH the POTUS, AND ONLY WITH BHO. He was elected (voter fraud ... probably) by our ignorant masses, FOLLOWING THEIR DEMOCRAT, LIBERAL, RACIST, PROGRESSIVE, COMMUNIST, MARXIST Pied Piper, straight off the UN's New World Order cliff. He, not Jarrett, calls all of the PLAYS - BELIEVE IT!

WHY DID THEY ELECT AND RE-ELECT BHO? Simply because he is 1/2 BLACK and because he spins a damn good YARN; a TALL TALE that HIS people want to hear - and DON'T DARE TRY TO "INFLUENCE" THEM WITH COMMON SENSE, STATISTICS OR THE TRUTH (FACTS).

So, here is the deal ... I am old, I grew up in the 50s and 60s, during the HAPPY DAYS of our Republic's maturation. I remember fondly the unrestricted freedom to be a child, the joyful days, the safe neighborhoods and the gentile, polite and patriotic society our Constitutional Republic facilitated for everyone, countrywide (some exceptions conceded). THAT domestic UTOPIA has morphed into a totalitarian police state. It is a repressive regime that controls our thoughts, our words and our deeds. This dangerous megalomaniacal bullying of a free people, inevitably leads to societal "Push-Back", which always escalates into anarchy and social revolution ... death and destruction! Moreover, we are headed down that road as I write!

We are facing a totally asymmetrical engagement. Obama has the unequalled power of the US War Machine at his fingertips. WE have slingshots, bows and arrows, handguns and SEMI-AUTOMATIC long guns. True, we have more "Patriots" in arms than Obama does; but HE also has his loyal domestic Gestapo ... our Local Police and State Police, Federally trained and equipped and much, much more! SIMPLY NOT A WINNABLE FIGHT; by anyone's calculation. Just lots and lots of dead and/or dying patriotic Americans, NOTHING MORE!

I have had a great life so far; and I am roaring mad about our PROFESSIONAL career politicians who have decimated our freedoms, our liberty, our independence and our inalienable rights. Taking up arms against our own government however is a fool’s act of desperation. It might make you feel better ... until you are shot dead 2 hours into the futile fray.

I no longer think much about myself, I will live my life until my last breath. I DO THINK ABOUT MY WONDERFUL CHILDHOOD, MY ADULT CHILDREN'S CURRENT AND FUTURE LIVES AND MOST URGENTLY ABOUT MY GRANDDAUGHTER'S FUTURE AND BEYOND. I want her to have what I had as a child (as much as realistically possible). MOREOVER, I will give anything to assure that outcome - including my own life!

There is a Constitutional path provided for us to stifle an out-of-control Federal administration. The STATES are still CONSTITUTIONALLY in charge; but we must flex our State's muscles and collectively enforce our Constitutional rights - STARTING AT THE STATE GOVERNANCE LEVEL.

The links, both above and below [Same], will help explain this process ----> get informed!

Great post....I am in..May be the last resort before the battle against the unconstitutional tyrants.
A constitutional convention? Sheer lunacy! So the answer to criminals obtaining guns illegally is more gun laws for them to ignore? People driving wreckless and speeding, so you lower the speed limit? They aren't following the constitution so you propose a new one for them to ignore? Never mind that the states are all heavily controlled by the monetary largesse of the federal funding programs. Opening the constitution to "change" is playing into their hands. You won't like what you get. How about we just make them use the one ee already have?

Oh you must not understand what this convention would do. Under the Constitution the States are the true power. The States have allowed the Feds to become omnipotent and regulate to them what right looks like! By coercion the Feds threaten to withhold money from the states if they do not change their law in the Feds favor, when in fact its truly the States who can withhold money from the Fed!

The States have much MUCH more power they have not began to use!!!

Quite the contrary, it is you who are being misled.  Just like the house COULD have trumped Obama with the power of the purse, the states are beholden to the federal purse.  Anyone considering opening up a convention to change a constitution that is already not being used is being foolhardy, and I am being polite.  First, if it is not being followed already, what good is changing it to something different that will be ignored?  Open the door to all sorts of revisions that you will not like....yep, that makes sense.  Exactly what the progressives would love to see happen....and then they can remind you how you wanted it to happen.  If you get the government to follow the constitution you have now, you don't NEED to change it.  Even if you changed it, and liked the changes (doubtful), how do you get it to be followed?  Changing the chairs on the deck of the Titanic may have made some feel like they accomplished something, but it was for naught.  A constitutional convention is a waste of time at best, a severe peril to the republic more likely.

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
