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.

No argument, don't know or want to know the Rev.; simply a critical critique of a different opinion. Isn't that what BLOGS are supposed to be about? We are having a public debate; feel free to jump in anytime.

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!!!

"The people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION, but to overthrow the men who pervert it!" -----Abraham Lincoln.

No wonder the P.O.S in the whitehouse dodged the 150th anniversary of the Ghetysburge Address

Mitch,

Agreed.  But we MUST regain control of the legislature.  They 'pass' unConstitutioonal 'laws', and suddenly the Constitution is an 'outdated, quaint piece of paper'.  The Article 4 'judges' overlook (spell ignore) both, the Constitution and SCOTUS decisions.  (income tax) 

Get the CONgress back to working for US, not the UN, and at least amend the 16th amendment to claify that it gave CONgress NO NEW TAXING power.  Repeal the 14th and 17th. 

Mr Lincoln also said, "No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar".  Recording devices had not yet been invented.  But the 'Liar In Chief' can't review all of the recordings before each 'speech'. 

Ok "rev".......a wolf in sheep skin ay!!!

Its got to be Obama.  Obama is a Muslim Marxist.  He secretly hates our military.  Does not support prayer in our military. Bibles can not longer be used or shown on a military base.  There is a passage in it that says homosexuals are bad.   Uses the ACLU, Homosexuals, Anti-Christians, to slowly destroy our American Heritage.  Obama was born a Muslim.  Studies Islam.  Reads the Koran.  His parents taught him to hate America.  He has ordered the Justice Department to prosecute some of our military soldiers to be brought to trial for doing their duty in Iraq, and Afghanistan.  For example one of the those, that are in a Federal Prison for 25 years, is Army Ranger 1st Lt. Michael Behenna. I believe it was a case of self defense.  There are five others in the Federal Prison for charges like in self-defense.  One save a base from being blown up by a muslim, and they found and killed the intruder when the muslim tried to take the soldiers gun from him.  In the struggle the M-16 went off and killed the terrorist.  Since the base was alerted to the terrorist, the base took their battle stations.  The soldier was commended for his act, until the U. S. Justice system had him put in jail.

Obama is a fraud.  Larry Klayman founder of Freedom Watch formed a Citizens Grand Jury in Ocala, Florida.  This is an alternative that is allowed in the U. S. Constitution to form a legal group to impeach Obama. You do not have to appear in Federal Court.  The House Judiciary with Rep. Bob Goodlette as Charmain, has NOT brought a vote to start investigation of Obama, Eric Holder, or V.P Joe Biden that could lead to Impeachment of all of them.  All they have to do is vote "Yes" on H. R. 107, or H. R. 3 to start investigation.  Petitions have been sent by lobbying groups to H. R. Goodlatte, and Rep. Darrell Kagan.  Since none of them have responded Freedom Watch went into action.  Larry Klayman says the House and Senate are the "go along to get along" groups and responsible for letting the U. S. Government be run by Obama.

Larry Klayman indicted President Obama at the White House months in advance.  Obama was to appear before the Citizens Grand Jury on September 18, 2013 in Ocala, Florida and to contest or support that his Hawaiian birth certificate is authentic.  Larry Klayman has proof, and witnesses that the one shown over the internet is a fake.  Witness must have presented the proof that Obama's Hawaiian birth certificate was created using the software called Adobe.

The Citizens Grand Jury sentenced him for fraud.  On two separate cases for five years each -on fraud to the citizens of the United States.  They sentenced him to a 10 year in prison for fraud.

Obama has control of the T. V. Stations, and most of the major newspapers.  It was blocked on his conviction and the Freedom Watch march on November 19, 2013 in front of the White House.

Obama uses every major tragedy to get him on T. V. and gives a speeches on how he is going to improve the anti-terror enforcement -especially after the Boston Marathon Bombing, the Newton High School shooting.  Especially when he was vacationing at Martha's Vineyards, he leaves the vacation to fly to Miami to speak before some Veteran organization that he was going to reduce the number of days it takes for a veteran to claim his disability.  Something like from 500 days to 120 days.  The vets cheered.  Why would he take a day off from his vacation unless you could fool the veterans and public that he supports the military?  He wanted to be sure the T. V. was there, and also at the funeral of the Boston Bomber church funeral of all those individuals that were killed and injured.  He wants to make it look like he is a "good guy" in the eyes of the America.

If you want to join in the effort you can look up Freedom Watch and sign up.  You can look up Judicial Watch, and the American Center for Law and Justice for cases they have pending against Obama, the IRS, and FBI.

Judicial Watch reports and brings both Democrats and Republicans to justice when they have violated laws.  Obama and his Muslin Brotherhoods are blocking the release of records thru the Freedom of Information Act on the Benghazi, on Bill Clinton, and Hillary Clinton, and Eric Holder.  J. W. has filed over 1200 FOIS, and 120 lawsuits for the information.  Both the J. W. and ACLJ are conducting massive lawsuits against the IRS at this time.  You can look them up and sign up if you wish.

There are many other cases facing Obama.

You can tell I am not a Obama man.  I am a Tea Party Patriot. But I have to vote as a Republican.

"He secretly hates our military." 

No secret here...  He's been 'encouraging' experienced and knowledgable Generals to retire early, and firing others for disagreeing with him.

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.
