This same man saw his legacy of decades worth of public service swirl down the proverbial bowl after it was disclosed he shared classified information with his biographer and paramour, Paula Broadwell.
As most Americans are unaware, by federal law those serving in the nation’s military are suppose to receive a yearly pay raise in accordance with a formula utilized by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
The House of Representatives traditionally uses whatever figure the BLS sends them to factor into any given Fiscal Year Budget to be sent to the Commander-in-Chief.
Yet as reported by the Alabama Media Group (The Birmingham News, The Huntsville Times, the Mobile Press-Register) on Aug. 31, 2015, members of the Armed Forces will see a barely visible 1.3 percent increase in their proverbial pay envelopes starting New Year’s Day. But as reported by the Heritage Foundation on Aug. 7, 2015, Barack Obama has again decided to use an emergency loophole in the US Code to keep the lawful pay raise of 2.3 percent from the troops.

Despite almost three times as many British Muslims serve in the ranks of ISIS than Her Majesty’s Armed Forces, the central government’s nation-wide plan to de-radicalize homegrown Islamic jihadists is “bursting at the seams” and apparently on the verge of falling apart.
As reported by the Breitbart.com news portal and the Express newspaper (of London, Great Britain) both on Aug. 29, 2015, the island nation’s officially titled “Channel programme” is collapsing under its own weight.
When tragedy struck at home, Daniel Saint and Doc King, two wounded combat veterans, hopped on their motorcycles and began a journey to find hope. It became a mission 6,500 miles long – a mission to raise awareness for the high rate of suicides among those who have served…and let them know that there is hope.
They confronted a man from Northern Africa, who was equipped with an automatic rifle and a knife. The terrorist was able to get off a few rounds, injuring three before the Marines subdued him and put an end to what could have been a much bloodier attack. French officials praised the Marines for their courage and credited them for saving many more lives. Continue reading
The plight of Marine Corps Major Jason Brezler could be described at a minimum as everything old is new again. However, on the other side of the coin, the case of Major Brezler could also be one of the premier cases of political hypocrisy in the history of the American Republic.
As reported by the Daily Caller on Aug. 15, 2015, the Marine Reserve officer is still fighting his dismissal from the Corps for sending via his private email account classified information, which in the broadest of terms, is the same situation presidential contender Hillary Clinton finds herself in.
Hillary Clinton is under scrutiny for passing along classified information in her private emails that ultimately got 4 men killed. U.S. Marine Reservist Major Jason Brezler is facing discharge for sending along a classified email intended to prevent that very thing.
Such was the case when the site published an article referencing an incident where Facebook told the administrators of “Locked and Loaded” that a Marine Corps emblem with a “remembrance” ribbon violated their community standards.
With the first Republican Party debate dominating the American headlines, little ink has been spilled regarding the continual bestial slaughter taking place in length and breadth of the Muslim World in the name of Islamic Jihad. As reported by the Reuters UK news service on Aug. 7, 2015, al-Qaida allied Jihadists in the northwest African nation of Mali launched an attack on a hotel used as United Nations base of operations, killing five and taking three Russian pilots hostage.
The Navy has denied that they are bringing charges against Navy Lt.Cmdr. Timothy White for shooting at the terrorist who killed 5 military members at the recruiting office in Chattanooga, Tennesee.
They are denying any plans to charge him, but at the same time they say it’s “still under investigation.” Calling the initial report by Col. Allen West “untrue” may or may not be applicable.
