Navy SEAL Who Killed Bin Laden Throws Supports Behind Trump’s Decision To Restore Eddie Gallagher’s Rank

Published

The Navy SEAL who is credited with filling radical Islamic terrorist Osama bin Laden full of hot lead has thrown his support behind President Trump’s decision to restore the rank of Eddie Gallagher, a fellow SEAL, who received a demotion after posing for a photo with the corpse of an Iraqi civilian.

Robert O’Neil also went on the warpath against “whiny” Pentagon officials for criticizing Trump for getting involved in the Gallagher matter to begin with.

“Everyone knows Gallagher will always be a SEAL… they’ll never be able to take that away from him,” O’Neill told The Washington Examiner. “It’s a special designation. SEALs go through the hardest training in the world … basically beating you up. It turns you into a special warrior.”

O’Neill also ripped the Navy for its “ridiculous” rules of engagement. “I’ve been saying it for a while now,” he said. “These current rules of engagement are going to get somebody killed.”

Gallagher has been awarded two Bronze Stars with V for valor and also sports the highly prized Trident pin, which signifies his membership into the country’s most elite SEAL unit. Gallagher was upset about the Navy trying to take back the pin.

“This is all about ego and retaliation,” Gallagher told Fox News. “This has nothing to do with good order and discipline. They could have taken my Trident at any time they wanted.”

Trump has ordered that Gallagher be allowed to keep the Trident pin, thus allowing him to retire as a SEAL.

Gallagher was acquitted of murder involving the stabbing death of an ISIS militant captive, though he was convicted for the picture that was snapped of him posing with the corpse. He received his demotion after the conviction.

President Trump has since pardoned Gallagher.

“I think what I’m doing is sticking up for our armed forces. And there’s never been a president that’s going to stick up for them and has like I have,” Trump told the media on Monday. “I will stick up for the warriors.”

Along with pardoning Gallagher and restoring his rank, Trump also fired Navy Secretary Richard Spencer last Friday after he publicly disagreed with the president getting involved.

Spencer said the following in a letter he penned following his being fired:

“I no longer share the same understanding with the Commander in Chief who appointed me, in regards to the key principles of good order and discipline. I hereby acknowledge my termination as United States Secretary of the Navy.”

Gallagher is set to retire from active duty and will not participate in the review board over his conduct from 2017 while on deployment.

O’Neill went on to say of Gallagher, “He’s a great guy. He’s a poster image of what a SEAL should be. I’d go to war with him tomorrow.”

Elizabeth Warren Not Interested In Getting Involved In Sanders-Clinton Feud, Says ‘I’m Not Going There’

Published

on

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has fallen behind both Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders in the polls, which is not a great sign this close to the Iowa caucuses, but at the end of the day, it’s still anyone’s game. With the primary so close, many in the Democratic Party have turned on each other and gone after one another in verbal jousting and mudslinging attacks, chief among them Warren and Sanders, with Warren accusing Sanders of saying he didn’t believe a woman could be president. While the smoke is just starting to clear on that a bit, the feud between Bernie and former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is still alive, and Warren is refusing to get involved in the fray. Check out the details from The Washington Examiner: Elizabeth Warren tried to skirt questions about Hillary Clinton’s claim “nobody likes” her rival for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders. “I’m not going there,” the Massachusetts senator, 70, told CBS Friday morning. Clinton, 72, in an interview published this week by the Hollywood Reporter, blasted the Vermont senator, her former 2016 Democratic primary opponent, as “a career politician,” saying she felt “so bad” that “people got sucked into” him. “He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done,” the former secretary of state told the outlet. “Bernie and I have worked together for a very long time, and we continue to do so. I’ve said all I’m going to say about this,” Warren said before turning to the topic of impeachment. Warren has obviously realized that her attacks against Bernie backfired on her in a big way so now she’s trying to avoid getting pulled into another battle that could potentially hurt her chances…

Brand New Poll Reveals That A Plurality Of Americans On Board With Soleimani Killing

Published

on

Liberals all across the country displayed their true colors by coming out in support of a radical Islamic terrorist, one who killed an untold number of American soldiers and horribly oppressed his own people in Iran after President Trump ordered the drone strike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani. These folks despise the president so much that they took the side of a terrorist, strangely seeming to believe that their opinions on this would reflect the feelings of most Americans. A new poll proves that is totally not the case at all. In fact, a plurality of Americans support the president’s decision to take out Soleimani. Here’s more on the poll from The Washington Examiner: The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll released Friday found 41% of Americans approved of Trump authorizing Soleimani’s death while 30% of Americans opposed the authorization. While more Americans supported the killing than opposed it, 59% of Americans disapproved of Trump’s handling of foreign policy overall. The poll comes three weeks after the United States killed the Iranian terrorist leader. The strike came in response to Iranian-backed militias attacking the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. Trump described the killing as a “no bullshit” mission. Iran responded by firing over a dozen missiles at bases housing U.S. troops. The Iranian strikes injured 11 Americans but resulted in no deaths. Once again, this poll demonstrates that a lot of individuals in the Democratic Party are on the wrong side of an issue, led there by their own desire to see President Trump impeached and removed from office. In short, they have become so used to hating the president and attacking him over every move he makes that it has become their default reaction, even when he does something good, to criticize him and oppose him. Will this…
