Navy Removed SEAL Who Received Pardon By Trump; President Overrides Decision

Published

on

On Thursday, President Trump stepped up to the plate for Navy SEAL Chief Petty Officer Edward Gallagher, who he recently pardoned less than a week ago of charges of war crimes and convictions, after the Navy decided to remove him.

Here’s what Trump did according to a new report from TheBlaze:

Gallagher was acquitted in July of first-degree murder of an ISIS captive and attempted murder of civilians in Iraq, and convicted of posing in a photo with the dead body of a captive.

The Navy notified Gallagher on Wednesday that it intended to remove him from the SEALs, a move that had been cleared by some White House officials, before President Trump intervened. Navy officials told the Times that while they obviously disagreed with the president’s decision, they were not totally surprised by it and intended to comply. From the Times:

The commander of Naval Special Warfare, Rear Adm. Collin Green, discussed the matter with Navy Secretary Richard V. Spencer and the chief of naval operations, Adm. Michael Gilday, and the Navy briefed Defense Secretary Mark Esper.

In the hours before the letters were issued, two Navy officials said, the Navy reached out to the White House for clearance multiple times.
“The Navy will NOT be taking away Warfighter and Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher’s Trident Pin,” the president wrote on Twitter. “This case was handled very badly from the beginning. Get back to business!”

By the time Gallagher had received his conviction, he’d already served more than the four month sentence he was handed down, so he didn’t spend any additional time in prison after the trial was over.

Trump also restored Gallagher to his former rank of chief after he received a demotion from a military jury.

Is 2020 over yet? Is 2021 going to be worse? If Joe Biden is elected president, it is certainly possible – but dang. This year has been a trip and it’s only halfway through. Just wait until we get closer to the election. It’s gonna be fireworks. From TDW: The city council for Montpelier, Vermont unanimously rejected a petition to paint an American flag and the phrase “Liberty and Justice for All” in front of the Vermont State House. The city council made its decision in a contentious Wednesday night meeting where the members heard arguments for the murals from GOP gubernatorial candidate John Klar and several other supporters. Klar wanted to paint the flag on one side of an existing “Black Lives Matter” motto on the street, and the phrase “Liberty and Justice for All” in red, white, and blue painted on the other side.

Black College Student Finds Racist Notes On His Car, Evidence Shows He Planted Them Himself

How many race hoaxes does this make, now?

Race hoax, race hoax, where for art thou race hoax? It’s hilarious to think that some people believe they’ll get away with acts of nonsense like this, attempting to blame an entire group of people over something that never happened. If Texas A&M had a spine, they would expel this student on the spot. But they won’t. It would be bad press. From The Daily Wire: In late June, Texas A&M University student Isaih Martin made headlines after he said he found racist notes on the windshield of his car. […] Late last week, Texas A&M police closed the investigation. Just as in nearly every other instance of an alleged hate crime like this, police determined that the accuser was responsible for the notes. […] Police said there were no cameras to clearly capture what happened, but nearby surveillance footage showed only a few people walking near Martin’s car during that time frame, none of whom were near the car long enough to post the notes. […] Police said that “based on video evidence, no other person had enough time to place the messages on Martin`s car other than himself.” How about them apples? The worst part is that the guy will most likely never have to answer for his crime. What kind of life lesson is that?
