Army Backs Down, Revokes Sanctions Against Army Chaplain Who Criticized Transgenderism

The Army has reversed its reprimand that would have ended the career of a chaplain who criticized transgenderism

Published

Two months after being sanctioned by the U.S. Army for criticizing transgenderism, the U.S. Army has reversed the reprimand that would have more or less ended a chaplain’s career.

Army chaplain Maj. Andrew Calvert was informed of the decision after he filed an appeal of the reprimand, according to Just The News.

“The decision clears the way for Chaplain Calvert’s record to be cleared, resulting in the possibility of future promotions and assignments,” a representative of the First Liberty Institute said.

First Liberty said its general counsel was told of the reversal “both orally and in writing” but told Just the News it does not have “approval” to share documentation of it.

Calvert left a comment on an Army Times Facebook post alleging that newly inaugurated President Biden planned to reverse the Trump administration policy, which was still in force. He defended the policy as recognizing “reality” and called service members with gender dysphoria “mentally unfit” to serve.

His superiors subsequently received Facebook messages pointing to that comment and Calvert’s other social media posts, including “11 reasons why Christians should vote for Trump” and an article about a former lesbian “set free from sexual sin.”

The Army said that since Calvert wore his uniform in a Facebook video, he violated Army policies against engaging in partisan political activity.

“I am grateful for this favorable decision, and I look forward to continue meeting the spiritual needs of the soldiers with whom I serve,” Calvert said of his reprieve.

The Army noted that it is satisfied with the final decision.

“The Command completed a thorough and impartial investigation and took appropriate action,” III Corps (Fort Hood) deputy spokesperson Maj. Gabriela Thompson said. “In accordance with long-standing Army policy and to protect the privacy of the service member concerned, we will not provide any additional details regarding personnel or administrative action.”

Gunman Bricked to Death After Opening Fire on Forth Worth Party

You don’t mess with Texas.

Published

on

You know what they say:  Don’t mess with Texas. This is the sort of placed where the locals have no problem reminding you, and swiftly, that you’re not from around here.  They are fiercely independent Americans, and they enjoy their freedom in their own unique way. Texans always seem to get their way, and they certainly have been known to find a unique solution to their problems. This is as true as ever this week. A gunman who opened fire at a party early Monday in Texas, fatally shooting one person, died after attendees struck him with bricks, authorities said. The incident began around 1 a.m. in the backyard of a Fort Worth home when an attendee became angry and left, the police department said in a statement. The person, identified by a Fort Worth police spokesperson only as a man, returned with a second person and got into an argument with other partygoers. The man opened fire, striking one person and causing a non-life-threatening injury, the statement said. But then… When people at the party began chasing him, he opened fire and they threw landscaping bricks at him, the statement said. Two people were struck by gunfire, one of them fatally, police said. The second person was taken to a hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. The gunman was pronounced dead at the scene, and has yet to be publicly identified.

Swastika Found Engraved at State Department Draws Condemnation

The Secretary of State was LIVID.

Published

There’s nothing funny about the Nazi regime, and everyone knows it, except for a certain breed of adolescent dolt who’s simply looking to appear edgy and dangerous as some hormonal ploy to attract a mate. These are the kids that would draw toothbrush mustaches on the faces in the magazines, or throw up a sig heil behind the teacher’s back for a laugh. But this phase almost always fades as the years climb on, and most of these young idiots looks back at themselves in a perpetual state of cringe. This leaves us to assume that anyone continuing to exude such Hitleresque nonsense into adulthood is doing so very purposefully, and not with the naïveté of their younger years. At the State Department, this reality is causing a bit of concern. A swastika carved into an elevator car has been discovered at the State Department in Washington—in a location within the building’s security perimeter. The elevator is close to the office of the special envoy charged with monitoring and opposing anti-semitism, Axios reports. Secretary of State Antony Blinken emailed all employees Tuesday about the discovery. Blinken was livid. “The hateful graffiti has been removed and this incident will be investigated,” he wrote. Blinken is the stepson of a Holocaust survivor, per the Washington Post, and has emphasized the threat of anti-semitism, which he wrote “isn’t a relic of the past.” Officials have said President Biden will nominate an ambassador-at-large to deal with the problem; the Jerusalem Post called for such a position in an editorial this month. Hate has been on the rise in America in recent years, as white supremacist groups continue to recruit and spread their message online, and then, often violently, in real life.
