    This weaned baby seal appears to have crossed the wrong mammal, as the defenceless pup gets crushed by its giant relative. The male deliberately chased, then lay on the weaner, who struggled and squealed before wriggling free - apparently uninjured. Baby seals are abandoned by their mothers after the weaning period who head back to sea to feed.

    An adorable seal was caught on camera completely covered in mud enjoying a relaxing bath by a passing photographer. The chilled seal was covered from head to tail in sticky seaside mud as it lolled about on the sand dunes of Donna Nook, Lincolnshire. Nigel Cox, 54, took the charming shot while on a photography holiday and on first seeing the seal he thought it looked like it was covered in chocolate. Nigel said: 'I started photography at an early age after my father, who worked at Kodak, gave me my first camera. In my teens, I progressed to an...

    Twin investigations are probing an incident at the Naval Special Warfare training complex in Coronado that left one Navy SEAL candidate in a coma. Authorities this week said that Naval Criminal Investigative Service agents and members of the Naval Special Warfare Center in Coronado are reviewing an Oct. 12 mishap that occurred during a study session for the land navigation course of the Basic Under Water Demolition/SEAL training program, or BUD/S. As an incentive to correctly answer questions, two sailors allegedly agreed to slap whichever one got a response wrong. BUD/S candidates typically challenge each other to perform acts of...

    In the 50 foot high wake following President Trump’s decision to ban transgenders from serving in the US military, criticism has come from the typical liberal media outlets and LGBT mouth pieces. Jumping on the bandwagon was former Navy SEAL, Kristin Beck, who at one time was a man named Chris Beck. There is no doubt that Beck is a patriot and certainly someone who served their country honorably and with valor for 20 years, including service with SEAL Teams 1, 5 and 6 in 13 separate deployments. Beck was awarded the Bronze Star (for Valor) and the Purple Heart....

    The US military is on an endless kamikaze run into oblivion, intent on destroying itself and seemingly unconcerned about putting the national security of this nation in peril. Yes, you heard it here. The leaders of the US military are so concerned with political correctness that they don’t give a damn about the defense of this nation. The latest bit of lunatic social engineering was reported by CNN yesterday. A woman will train with other potential officers this summer in hopes of becoming the first female Navy SEAL. The candidate, a midshipman, and another woman have enlisted as the first...

    Bravo to Bill Belichick. A Twitter user yesterday afternoon posted a couple of pictures of the prodigious coach wearing a shirt bearing an illustration that shocked some, confused others and pleased many more. The text reads, “Life is great” and features a depiction of an armed man in a turban being attacked by a military dog as he’s being chased by a soldier carrying a rifle. Is this hate-wear? No way. This is patriot-wear the Patriots head coach was showing off. The shirts are sold on a site called, run by Jim Amann, now a deputy sheriff in Los...

    The March of Folly rolls on at full speed in the US military under the Trump administration and the leadership of General Mattis in the Pentagon. In 2016, with a stroke of a pen, former Secretary of Defense Ash Carter, under the auspices of the Marxist Obama administration, authorized women to serve in the combat arms and special operations forces of the US military. For the uninitiated, the combat arms are the grunts, the tankers, the gun bunnies, the cavalry and the engineers. Special operations forces consist of the Rangers, the Green Berets, Delta Force, the Navy SEALs, Marine Recon...

    For nearly a hundred years, New England’s gray seals had a bounty on their heads. Maine and Massachusetts paid people to kill them, because they depleted fishing stocks. They were also hunted for their meat and pelts. By 1973—a year after the Marine Mammal Protection Act made it illegal to systematically kill the animals—a census estimated there were only 30 gray seals left along the entire coast of Maine.

    NEW YORK (Dow Jones)--Anthony Elgindy, the controversial short-seller and online stock commentator, has been arrested on charges of racketeering, insider trading and market manipulation, a government spokeswoman said Wednesday. Jan Caldwell, a spokeswoman for the San Diego field office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, said Elgindy, who lives in the San Diego area, was arrested at his business Tuesday. Details of the charges against Elgindy weren't immediately available. A spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's office in Brooklyn, N.Y., from which the charges originate, said the office would issue a statement about the Elgindy case soon.

    “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...

    A decorated retired Air Force officer who witnessed one of the most deadly attacks on Navy SEALs in U.S. history is breaking her silence, saying the government covered up evidence detailing that the 2011 downing of a Chinook helicopter gunship that killed 38 fighters in Afghanistan could have been prevented had it not been for restrictions to the military's rules of engagement that were changed under the Obama administration.

    When they brought William “Ryan” Owens home, the Navy SEAL was carried from a C-17 military plane in a flag-draped casket, onto the tarmac at Dover Air Force Base, as President Donald Trump, his daughter, Ivanka, and Owens’ family paid their respects. It was a private transfer, as the family had requested. No media and no bystanders, except for some military dignitaries. Owens’ father, Bill, had learned only a short time before the ceremony that Trump was coming. Owens was sitting with his wife, Marie, and other family members in the solemn, living room-like space where the loved ones of...

    Fighters for al Qaeda were apparently prepared for Donald Trump's first military raid as President, it has been claimed. An eight-year-old American girl and a SEAL Team Six member have been named after they were killed in President Trump's first military raid, in which officials have said 'almost everything went wrong.' It involved 'boots on the ground' at an al Qaeda camp near al Bayda in south central Yemen, officials confirmed in a statement to NBC. An official told the news outlet that the raid was directed from a US base in Djibouti. Officially, it was to search for 'information...

She also said it wasn’t immediately clear if those involved were SEALs or support staff. .... The paper reported Thursday that a Kentucky-based anti-Trump group was one of the first to post video of the incident on its website, calling it “a fascist tactic” that “is not acceptable. RESIST!!!” [Apparently a KY goat farmer took the photo/video and posted it as a lark, and then some KY SJW noticed it and alerted the Antifaghi or whatever they're called.]
