    Navy midshipmen stand behind "Not Communist" banner. Image via Twitter. The Army-Navy football game has historically been one of the best rivalries in all of sports with fans from both sides displaying creative and insulting signs. Saturday's game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was no different. On the Navy side, midshipmen held signs poking fun at their West Point counterparts for allowing admitted communist and Antifa supporter 2nd Lt. Spenser Rapone to graduate. As PJ Media reported back in September, photos posted on social media by Rapone showed the then-cadet posing with a Che Guevara t-shirt under...

  • NFL’s Olivier Vernon tells fans if they don’t like him kneeling, ‘don’t come to the game’

    12/04/2017 4:44:20 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 92 replies ^ | Valerie Richardson
    New York Giants defensive end Olivier Vernon ignited an outcry after telling fans if they don’t approve of his decision to kneel for the national anthem, “don’t come to the game.” The retort came after Vernon, the only member of the Giants still regularly taking a knee, told reporters that he had been heckled by fans in response to his season-long protest. “You hear ‘coward’ and ‘stand up’ and ‘disgrace,’” Vernon said. “It’s fine. As long as nobody comes on the field and touches me. You stay where you at, you’re going to be all right. They have a right....

    Sub-headline: Florida’s Republican tries to blow up the Senate tax reform. The GOP is pushing forward on tax reform, though a receiving line of Republican holdouts are slow-rolling progress. One who deserves special mention is Marco Rubio, who contributed nothing to ObamaCare repeal and now aspires to dilute the tax bill.On Wednesday Mr. Rubio and his political sidecar, Mike Lee of Utah, announced that they’ll file an amendment to the tax bill to change the $2,000 child tax credit. They want to make the credit refundable up to a person’s payroll tax liability, among other expensive tweaks. To pay for...

    “I am a soldier. I fight where I am told, and I win where I fight.”  -- Gen. George S. Patton.Americans are outraged over the Bowe Bergdahl sentencing November 3 that should have led to serious prison time, or worse. But, face it, we now live in a country where deserters who cause fellow soldiers to be maimed or killed are treated as heroes if weak leftists are in charge.He should be in prison. The only difference between Bergdahl and the guy who used a Home Depot truck to mow down and kill people in New York recently is that...

    FORT BRAGG, N.C. — Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's brutal five years of captivity by Taliban allies carried significant weight in an Army judge's decision to spare him prison time for leaving his post in Afghanistan in 2009, legal experts said. Criticism of Bergdahl by President Donald Trump also appeared to push the judge toward leniency. Army Col. Jeffery Nance didn't explain how he formulated the sentence that also included a dishonorable discharge, reduction in rank and a fine. But the judge had to consider a complex array of arguments for and against leniency. Prosecutors asked for a 14-year prison sentence,...

    The fading Republican establishment remains unable to reconcile its ongoing collapse, and continues to scapegoat Donald Trump for all the GOP’s troubles instead of looking in the mirror. Two weeks after an outraged George W. Bush lashed out at Trump, accusing him of emboldening “bigotry and white supremacy“, on Saturday we learn just how deep the animosity toward Trump runs within the extended Bush household. In a new book to be released this month from historian Mark Updegrove, titled “The Last Republicans“, and previewed on Saturday by the NYT and CNN, former President George H.W. Bush said he considers Trump...

    After a military judge ruled on Friday that Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl would get no prison time after pleading guilty to desertion/misbehavior before the enemy (he actually defected), the POTUS exploded on Twitter, calling the decision to spare the traitorous army soldier from doing time to be “a complete disgrace to our Country and Military”. Here’s the tweet: ‘The decision on Sergeant Bergdahl is a complete and total disgrace to our Country and to our Military.’ Then-candidate Trump also said during an October campaign rally back in 2015 that, let me quote: “You probably can’t do it, but if I win...

    Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who walked off his Army base in Afghanistan in 2009 and was held captive by the Taliban for five years, was ordered to be dishonorably discharged from the Army by a military judge on Friday, but received no prison time for desertion or endangering troops. At a sentencing that took only minutes, the military judge, Col. Jeffery R. Nance of the Army, also reduced Sergeant Bergdahl’s rank to private and required him to forfeit $1,000 a month of his pay for 10 months. Prosecutors had sought 14 years in a military prison. President Trump, who has labeled...

    FORT BRAGG, N.C. — A military judge has begun deliberating the fate of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl after closing arguments in which prosecutors called for a 14-year prison sentence. “It’s not only an appropriate sentence in this case, it’s what justice requires,” a prosecutor, Maj. Justin Oshana, said Thursday. The prosecution is seeking the prison term, a reduction in rank and a punitive discharge. The defense team is asking that Bergdahl be spared prison time and given a dishonorable discharge. Bergdahl pleaded guilty last month to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.

    FORT BRAGG, N.C. — In an unexpected move, Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl took the stand in his sentencing hearing Monday, breaking down several times and apologizing to those who were wounded while searching for him after he abandoned his post in Afghanistan. "I was trying to do something good and it turned bad," Bergdahl said, reading from a statement at the beginning of his testimony. "My words alone can't relieve the pain. ... I think about what I did every day for the last eight years." Aside from when Bergdahl pleaded guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, it...

    FORT BRAGG, N.C. — President Trump’s harsh criticism of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who walked off his Army post in Afghanistan in 2009 and was captured by the Taliban, will weigh in favor of a lighter sentence for the sergeant, a military judge said on Monday. “I will consider the president’s comments as mitigation evidence as I arrive at an appropriate sentence,” the judge, Col. Jeffery R. Nance of the Army, said during a hearing at Fort Bragg. The judge is expected to sentence Sergeant Bergdahl in the next few weeks. The judge rejected a request that he dismiss the case...

    The sentence the military judge will impose on Tali-Bowe Bergdahl isn’t about one self-centered deserter. It’s about our national defense. The judge’s decision will decide the state of discipline on battlefields for decades to come. Bergdahl has been charged with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. He has pleaded guilty to both charges. There are no mitigating circumstances. He must be punished, for his crimes and to make an example of him. Yet, the American left, which has had only two military heroes since 9/11 (Bergdahl and Chelsea Manning), continues to embrace Bergdahl’s very tall tale that he only meant...

    Several soldiers were seriously injured in the search for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, including a sergeant who was shot in the head, an Air Force intelligence officer testified Thursday in the sentencing phase of Bergdahl's desertion trial. The officer, Lt. Col. John Marx said he was leading a team of Americans and members of the Afghan Army in July 2009 through two villages searching for Bergdahl, who had abandoned his post, when they were ambushed by insurgents from "all sides." "That's when all hell broke loose," Marx said. About six feet from him, he said, Sgt. 1st Class Mark Allen was...

    Democratic senators on Tuesday praised Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) for his retirement-announcing speech, which called out the GOP for its "reckless" support of President Trump. "We must never regard as normal the regular and casual undermining of our democratic norms and ideals," said Flake, who has repeatedly clashed with the president and his advisers. Flake called out Trump for what he sees as his "coarseness," his "personal attacks" and his "flagrant disregard for truth and decency" in remarks made minutes after Trump met with Republican senators for a strategy lunch. "Senate is losing a good man in @JeffFlake. He made...

    FORT BRAGG, N.C. – Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will appear Monday before a military judge who will determine his punishment for endangering comrades by walking off his post in Afghanistan. Before delivering his sentence, the judge will have to resolve a last-minute defense argument that new comments by President Donald Trump have tainted the case. Bergdahl faces up to life in prison after pleading guilty last week to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. Prosecutors made no deal to cap his punishment, so the judge has wide leeway to decide his sentence after a hearing expected to take several days....
