    ...James’ name has continued to gain national attention after receiving a long list of endorsements for his efforts to defeat Michigan Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow, including National Security Adviser John Bolton, who endorsed James days before President Donald Trump appointed him to serve. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: John Bolton Endorses Michigan Army Veteran For US Senate) The Bolton endorsement came the same day the American Conservative Union, hosts of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) endorsed James. The GOP candidate was also endorsed by the Senate Conservatives Fund in late January. The former Navy SEAL involved in the raid that killed...

    Gov. Eric Greitens was charged Friday with felony computer tampering stemming from his use of a veterans charity’s donor list ahead of the 2016 election. The charge — which is essentially electronic theft — is the second felony charge the governor has faced in two months. He goes to trial next month for invasion of privacy. The embattled first-term governor and former Navy SEAL has denied any criminal wrongdoing and vowed to remain in office despite a chorus of fellow Republicans calling for him to resign or face impeachment. St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner is overseeing both cases against...

    Eric Greitens, a Democrat turned Republican, who also happens to be the Governor of the Show-Me State was indicted and booked last week on a felony invasion of privacy charge. The grand jury indictment stems from a photo that Greitens, a married man, allegedly snapped of a partially clad lover during a sexual tryst in the basement of his home in the spring of 2015, one year before his winning gubernatorial campaign. This is a big story, one that has great ramifications for state and national politics. It is a commentary on the crashing of a promising career. It includes...

    An NRA commentator and former Navy SEAL stands up for the right to bear an AR-15 despite the negative sentiment that media is portraying the AR. Former Naval special warfare operator Dom Rasso speaks in the short video from the National Rifle Association. Rasso says if the founding fathers had known about the AR-15 they “wouldn’t have rewritten the Second Amendment — they would’ve fortified it in stone because they knew the only way for us to stay free was by having whatever guns the bad guys have.” Supporting that the AR platform is accurate and reliable, Rasso also adds,...

    “Absent the pressures described [in my affidavit], I would have disapproved the findings in this case,” Lorge wrote in his affidavit. For Lorge, the pressure came from President Barack Obama’s White House and also the Senate. “At the time, the political climate regarding sexual assault in the military was such that a decision to disapprove the findings, regardless of merit, would bring hate and discontent on the Navy from the President, as well as senators including Senator Kirstin Gillibrand,” Lorge wrote in his affidavit. Lorge believes that based on his conversations with senior officials in the Navy, he was essentially...

    CNN host Kate Bolduan became irate at former Navy SEAL and Donald Trump supporter Carl Higbie on Tuesday after he dismissed reports that alleged the president shared classified information with Russian diplomats in the Oval Office last week. Bolduan acknowledged Higbie had dealt with highly classified information in the past and asked if it scared him that Trump would share classified information with top Russian officials. "I've been sitting here quietly listening to all this BS quite frankly. Did you listen to anything [White House National Security Adviser H.R.] McMaster said today?" Higbie asked Bolduan and the rest of the...

    The dispute represented a rare public challenge by senior military leaders to congressional oversight of the armed forces, and left lingering resentments on both sides. Lawmakers thought they had prevailed by blocking Losey’s promotion last year, but the newly obtained documents reveal the Navy had the last word.

    The Hill ^ | 03/01/2017 | BY JOE CONCHA
    Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore on Tuesday slammed President Trump’s address to Congress, saying the president "used" the widow of a slain Navy SEAL as an “f-you” to those criticizing the raid on an al Qaeda base in Yemen that killed him. Carryn Owens, the widow of Chief Petty Officer William "Ryan" Owens, was in the audience during Trump’s speech and received a standing ovation from the chamber as she fought back tears. Moore said Trump invited Owens as a prop to deflect criticism of the mission. “That’s why she’s there, as sort of an ‘f-you’ to the people who are...

    Business Insider ^ | 02/02/2017 | Adam Linehan, Task & Purpose
    The SEAL Team 6 raid in Yemen that resulted in the death of Chief Special Warfare Operator William "Ryan" Owens was declared a success by President Donald Trump, who praised Owens and his fellow commandos, three of whom were wounded, for "killing 14 [Qaeda] members" and "capturing important intelligence that will assist the US in preventing terrorism." But as more details of the weekend covert counterterrorism operation emerge, it's evident that the mission didn't go according to plan. US Central Command has now acknowledged that the raid resulted in civilian casualties, saying in a statement that an investigating team had...

    When Karen Vaughn went to Dover Air Force Base in 2011 to meet her son’s body, the mother of Navy SEAL Aaron Vaughn didn’t mind that President Barack Obama was there. She and the other family members gathered had one simple request. “What we experienced there is the families unanimously asked Barack Obama to not bring any media, to not make this a media event, that he was welcome to be with us but no media,” she told CNN’s “Legal View” guest host Ana Cabrera on Thursday. “And you know he showed up with cameras, and the next day our...

    Hotair ^ | 12/26/2014 | NOAH ROTHMAN
    IÂ’ve watched the film depiction of the life of the late Chris Kyle, AmericaÂ’s deadliest sniper, Navy SEAL, and veterans advocate, twice. It is a gripping portrayal, but it is a portrayal nonetheless. While the screenplay perhaps lacks nuance, it is also a product of Hollywood and should be considered a truncated and dramatized version of one manÂ’s life story. The complexities of biography often elude filmmakers who are charged with creating dense and intricate portraits of a human being in 120 minutes. Nevertheless, the movie is quite enjoyable. The performances are stirring and the wartime themes, difficult as...

Brown, 40, of Canton, Ohio, died in the accident May 7 in Williston, Florida, when his car's cameras failed to distinguish the white side of a turning tractor-trailer from a brightly lit sky and didn't automatically activate its brakes, according to government records obtained Thursday. Frank Baressi, 62, the driver of the truck and owner of Okemah Express LLC, said the Tesla driver was "playing Harry Potter on the TV screen" at the time of the crash and driving so quickly that "he went so fast through my trailer I didn't see him." "It was still playing when...

    BATH, Maine (AP) — The mother of a fallen Navy SEAL christened the second Zumwalt-class guided missile destroyer Saturday in honor of her son, who died in Iraq when he threw himself on an insurgent's grenade to save the lives of two fellow SEALS. The 610-foot, 15,000-ton ship, built by General Dynamics Bath Iron Works for the U.S. Navy, was named for Petty Officer 2nd Class Michael Monsoor. The 25-year-old California native died in 2006 and was awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously. "May God bless this ship, and all who sail within her," said Sally Monsoor before smashing a...

    Saudi Arabia has paid more than 20 percent of the cost of Hillary Clinton’s campaign for presidential elections, Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was quoted as saying Sunday in a news report by the Jordanian Petra News Agency. This is outrageous, if true, as it is illegal in the U.S. for presidential candidates to accept funding from foreign governments. Please don't hold your breath waiting for the FBI or the Dept. of Injustice as you could be dead a long time!

    The U.S. Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals Monday overruled the jury that awarded $1.8 million to former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura in a 2014 defamation case.Ventura won the award against the estate of former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, whose memoir “American Sniper” described an altercation between him and Ventura that the former governor said did not happen. Kyle’s widow, Taya Kyle, appealed the jury’s verdict, which came after a three-week federal trial in St. Paul in July 2014.In a 2 to 1 decision, the appeals court threw out the $1.35 million awarded to Ventura for “unjust enrichment.” It ordered the...
