(Arlington, VA) Army Brigadier General Tammy Smith has become the first openly gay flag officer to come out while currently serving in the U.S. military. She was promoted to the rank of Brigadier General in a private ceremony which took place today at the Womens Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery. BG Smith received her stars from her wife, Tracey Hepner.
For years, gay and lesbian generals and admirals were forced to hide their families in order to protect their careers. It is a great day for our military and for our nation when this courageous leader is finally able to recognize her wife for her support and sacrifice in the same way that all military families should be recognized for their service to our country, said Sue Fulton, a 1980 West Point graduate and member of the OutServe Board of Directors.
I’m not up to speed on US ribbons. Is there a medal for carpet munching ?
Agreed, and I would add, virtually all of them would not have been there were it not for the lowered standards and quota’s implemented to accomodate females in the service.
Yep-—this is all about subverting the most Christian and successful military in the history of the world-— (George Washington set Virtue and Christian Ethics as ESSENTIAL for a Great military—he kicked out sodomites-—they accosted, raped, seduced, and harassed other young men and created animosity, since they looked at men as only sex objects).
To remove God (Christianity) is essential to destroy the military. Machiavelli wrote about the military being the most important institution to keep power-—which has to PROMOTE VIRTUE because of the power, which can be so corrupting. Christian Ethics are the most perfect ethics (which allows freedom to all moral people, no matter what faith).
Republics will not survive if they do not “promote public Virtue”. This was stated by Montesquieu who said all governments-—to survive have certain things they HAVE to cultivate in the population. Tyrannical govt. have to cultivate Fear. Monarchy’s have to cultivate Honor.
Republics have to cultivate Public Virtue-—and forcing Sodomy—a Vice—is unconstitutional—since we have Rule of Law in a Republic-—we are under LAWS , NOT MEN——and this gross disregard for REASON and VIRTUE-—the two elements that determine JUSTICE and JUST LAW -—it a JOKE!!!!!!!!!
Marxists—threw out Virtue AND REASON in the schools-—they promote Vice-—pride in sodomy, etc.....to destroy and corrupt the Christian worldview of children, so when they grow up they believe any stupid lie—up is down—like two men can “marry”.
We need to get back to Rule of Law-—not this arbitrary “special rights” to sodomize and debase other human beings-—it is pure evil—and kicks OUT, both Reason and Virtue-—necessary for Justice (a Virtue).
Obama is not a traitor he is a foreign agent..
You must be an american to be a traitor..
Its probably Romney and John Roberts that are traitors..
Oh!.. and the entire staff of the White Hut..

So does she fly the Rainbow flag with a big Star on it?
maybe Drew but we’d think they would much more than this crap we have now running sadly
“The Royal Navy made buggery a death penalty offense because commissioned officers were sexually assaulting ships boys. Predation of the lower ranks by male and female superior officers and non commissioned officers can completely destroy the military.”
That is exactly the reason for forcing queer acceptance in our military.
Sadly though, I think I am the kind of being this new tolerant bunch of "patriots" considers their enemy in some future conflict.
No, but as things are going, I’m sure there will be one in O-Bummer’s second term.
Rick Santorum would, or atleast he would do all he could in that regard. When it comes to homosexuality, Santorum is not just an opportunistic politician, he really believes.
Yep-—that was the FIRST real nail “sealing” the coffin. The Marxists “radical egalitarianism” is about destroying the differences between males and females-—destroy the concept our Nation is built upon-—The Laws of Nature and nature’s God.
They tell children women are the “same” as men (BIG LIE-Cognitive Dissonance to destroy reason in our children) ==Women can be in the military (in combat same as men), are the same as a fireman, same as a policeman, bla bla bla. It is The Big Lie.
Marxism has to throw out the Laws of Nature—so they can redesign what men and women are—their utopia-—where children are not raised by such odd concepts as a mother and father. They eliminate those words-—they eliminate the CONCEPT in the minds of your children.
That is why marriage contracts now say Party A and Party B. They are conditioning children into their worldview where the word “mother” will be obsolete or a word which causes vomiting (The Brave New World).
This brainwashing by TV/Schools will eventually create children who think women and men are exactly the same—no differences—interchangeable-—so that then the Marxists can replace women with men and visa versa-—and you get homosexual “marriage”-—a complete irrational concept if you look at biology and REASON.
Why. Because it eliminates Common Sense. Children can not be logical if they see no difference between a male and female. It eliminates God—the Designer of Human Nature-—there is NO DESIGN in human nature—it is arbitrary.
Natural Law Theory is the basis of American Law—Jurisprudence. It is where reason and understanding of all ideas stem from since Plato. the Postmodernists—to Kill God-—eliminated Natural Law from all philosophy so THEY become god and can say what is Right and Wrong.
So, if we allow homosexuals to have special rights for sodomizing each other—a Vice-—then we destroy ALL the principles of our Constitution——and we eliminate Rule of Law——which to be JUST LAW —has to promote ONLY VIRTUE (read my tagline) which is the definition our Founders used—even Cicero.
We have to get our Constitution BACK-—Sodomy can never be given any “special rights”—nor can “sexual orientation” if it is unnatural and immoral.
That is the crux of the matter. Marxism is IRRATIONAL-—ARBITRARY LAW-—not based on The Laws of Nature—LIKE USA LAWS (and Common Law).
They have no RIGHT and WRong-—WE DID-—because Natural Law Theory was aligned with Christianity in 1245 or so by Thomas Aquinas and became the basis (Reasoning) for the US Constitution. Our standard is Natural Rights come from GOD only-—no man can alter that-—but we see Marxists trying to give special RIGHTS to evil irrational lifestyles.
and another move toward the destruction of the US military.
Women and fags in the military is all part of the plot to destroy the USA as fast as possible. It’s working.
Bravo. Deconstructionism is liberal SOP.
Is that a CIB and jump wings with combat star she’s wearing? How could she have earned those?
A male trying to mate with another male’s anal canal is insane. A female trying to mate with another female using a rubber appliance is insane. It’ s like Aunt Louise sitting at your dinner table trying to eat by sticking a spatula in her ear and telling you that’s just her lifestyle. It might be, but it’s still insane behavior.
