U.S. Army and a Graduate of West Point Gets The Boot

The vast majority of people who serve are heroes who want to protect America, Rapone is a fraud who deserved to have an army boot shoved up his arse.

Near the end of September, we reported the story of Spenser Rapone, an infantry officer in the U.S. Army and a graduate of West Point, who issued support for Colin Kaepernick with a message saying, “Communism will win.” Now we learn that Rapone is being booted out of the Army

Spenser Rapone is scheduled to speak during July’s Socialism 2018 conference. His bio on the conference site revealed his fate:

Spenser Rapone is a former Army Ranger and Infantry Officer recently separated from the military for speaking out against its imperialist violence. He enlisted as an infantryman out of high school in 2010, and deployed to Afghanistan in 2011. After returning from his combat tour, he applied and was accepted into the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY in 2012, graduating and receiving his commission in May 2016. Deciding he could no longer stomach the immorality of US imperialism, he spoke out against the reprehensible actions of the military in September 2017. He ultimately resigned his commission, and was separated from the Army in June 2018 with an Other Than Honorable discharge.

SOFREP, a news website for Special Ops Veterans also explained that Rapone’s military career is justifiably toasted:

Recently, Spenser Rapone re-tweeted a post on Twitter which announced that he would be speaking at a socialist event in July as he was being processed out of the Army this June with an other than honorable discharge. This was likely the harshest punishment the Army could give Rapone unless they decided to charge him with something like sedition. With an other than honorable discharge, Rapone will not be entitled to VA benefits, the GI Bill, and may have difficulties in finding employment.

Rapone described himself as someone who wanted to destroy the military from within. DAYS after the initial story broke almost nine months ago, Jonah Bennett reported at the Daily Caller:

“I’m currently an infantry officer at Ft. Drum, NY assigned to the same brigade that she was while enlisted,” Rapone wrote in a post. “Every single day I think of the contradictions of being a communist while in this organization, and her courage and tenacity gives me strength to continue the long march through the institutions.”

Per Bennet,  the “long march” comment “refers to a strategy of institutional infiltration and subversion coined by student activist Rudi Dutschke but originally developed by Antonio Gramsci, a Marxist thinker whose thought developed in the wake of the failure of economic determinism to bring about a revolution.”

Once Spenser Rapone was outed in September West Point announced he was being investigated by his Army commanders and they would help:

What as Rapone’s motivation for wanting to destroy the army from within? “In a Reddit post regarding Manning, Rapone spelled out some of his motivations for remaining in the military and exactly what he wanted to accomplish while serving as a second lieutenant in the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division. Those motivations included Manning’s decision to leak national security documents to WikiLeaks.” 

Allow me to suggest that if Spencer Rapone is so enthralled with the traitor Chelsea Manning, perhaps he can have the same surgery Manning had, but in his case without anesthesia.

With an other than honorable discharge, Rapone will not be entitled to VA benefits, the GI Bill, and may have difficulties in finding employment.

As an avowed communist, one who is networked with other like-minded individuals, he may find a bit of a safety net after he is discharged from organizations he associates with such as the Democratic Socialists of America Veterans Working Group, which is reputed to be about 150 members strong. None the less, Rapone’s political decisions and judgments will likely follow him long after he separates from the military.

In addition to supporting Communism, Rapone used his Twitter feed to  attack Defense Secretary James Mattis as “the most vile, evil f**k in the current administration.” Also on Twitter, he called Vice President Pence a “f**king  medieval, cold-blooded killer,” advocated political violence against the right, and referred to President Trump as a fascist (note the asterisks are mine Rapone spelled out the word on Twitter).

Now you might say he was exercising his freedom of speech, but members of the military are subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice(UCMJ), and chapter 88 of the code says:

“Any commissioned officer who uses contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Transportation, or the Governor or legislature of any State, Territory, Commonwealth, or possession in which he is on duty or present shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.”

The code makes total sense because without respect for the chain of command a military cannot be successful.

There is no room in the military for people like Spenser Rapone, people who hate this country. The vast majority of people who serve are heroes who want to protect America, Rapone is a fraud who deserved to have an army boot shoved up his arse.

Dems Hold Emergency Call On Mueller Report, Plot Subpoenas, & REFUSE Classified Briefings

Just because Mueller didn’t find anything doesn’t mean Dems are done looking.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller didn’t find any connection between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia. After two long years of searching, Mueller and team confirmed what conservatives had known from the start. And yet, that doesn’t mean Congressional Democrats are done digging for dirt. You can expect the “Russia collusion” narrative to live on as long as President Trump remains commander-in-chief – and that could be for a while longer. Now, Dems are panicking – and they are looking to make big moves. From Daily Wire: Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called an emergency conference call of Democratic leadership Saturday afternoon to discuss how to proceed amid news that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, may not result in a presidential indictment. “Today, we are having an emergency Caucus conference call at 3:00 p.m. E.T. to discuss the transmittal of the Mueller report to the Department of Justice (DOJ),” Pelosi wrote in a letter to colleagues issued Saturday morning, “While we do not know the substance of the report, we will have the relevant Committees of jurisdiction on the call today to update Members on where we go from here.” […] Pelosi also made clear, in her letter ahead of the call, that Democrats do not intend to let the issue of Russian collusion go, even if Mueller’s report — as suspected — shows no evidence of actual collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials to impact the outcome of the 2016 Presidential election. Fox News host Chris Wallace isn’t exactly 100% pro-Trump. There are times he’s in 45’s corner, and there are times he’s not. It is what it is. At the very least, Fox News can definitively say they are “fair and balanced” in that they provide…

WATCH: Ilhan Omar Encourages Muslim Crowd to ‘Raise Hell, Make People Uncomfortable’

WHOA!!

Freshman Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar has raised plenty of hell on her own. Her anti-Israel leanings are abundantly clear. Now, Omar has encouraged Muslims to “raise hell” and “make people uncomfortable.” And no, that’s not a typo. She actually said that. From The Blaze: Controversial freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) encouraged some 400 Los Angeles-area Muslims Saturday to “raise hell” and stand defiant in the face of what she characterized as rampant discrimination against the Muslim community. Omar’s comments came during a fundraising event for the Los Angeles chapter of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations. She was one of several keynote speakers. Omar said, “I say raise hell, make people uncomfortable. Because here’s the truth. For far too long, we have lived with the discomfort of living as second class citizens, and frankly I’m tired of it and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1109843664862355461?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1109843664862355461&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theblaze.com%2Fres%2Fcommunity%2Ftwitter_embed%2F%3Fiframe_id%3Dtwitter-embed-1109843664862355461%26created_ts%3D1553442324.0%26screen_name%3DRealSaavedra%26text%3DRep.%2BIlhan%2BOmar%2B%2528D-MN%2529%2Bclaims%2Bthat%2BMuslims%2Bin%2Bthe%2BU.S.%2Bare%2B%25E2%2580%259Csecond-class%2Bcitizens%252C%25E2%2580%259D%2Bencourages%2Bthem%2Bto%2B%25E2%2580%259Craise%2Bhell%252C%25E2%2580%25A6%2Bhttps%253A%252F%252Ft.co%252Fhd09lCwouI%26id%3D1109843664862355461%26name%3DRyan%2BSaavedra Omar then targeted President Trump: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1109867487787544576?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1109867487787544576&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theblaze.com%2Fres%2Fcommunity%2Ftwitter_embed%2F%3Fiframe_id%3Dtwitter-embed-1109867487787544576%26created_ts%3D1553448004.0%26screen_name%3DRealSaavedra%26text%3DIlhan%2BOmar%2Bsuggests%2BTrump%2Bis%2Bresponsible%2Bfor%2Bviolence%2Bagainst%2BMuslims%2Bworldwide%2Band%2Bthat%2Bhe%2Bis%2Bintentionally%2Bsendin%25E2%2580%25A6%2Bhttps%253A%252F%252Ft.co%252FscXf38C68P%26id%3D1109867487787544576%26name%3DRyan%2BSaavedra Ilhan could also care less about what pro-Israel protesters have to say. https://twitter.com/AdamMilstein/status/1109604130899849216?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1109604130899849216&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F45045%2Filhan-omar-trashes-pro-israel-protesters-could-ryan-saavedra WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1109862805224644608?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1109862805224644608&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F45045%2Filhan-omar-trashes-pro-israel-protesters-could-ryan-saavedra South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn is one of the top Democrats in the House.
