    The Long Gray Line is dying before your very eyes. It is being murdered by Obama holdouts, diversity champions, politically correct Marxist professors and feminist nuts. The United States Military Academy is sinking into the Hudson and General MacArthur’s million ghosts in olive drab, in brown khaki, in blue and gray, can rise from their white crosses thundering those magic words: Duty, Honor, Country from now until forever. No one at the Point is listening anymore… The enemy is not at the gates of West Point. The enemy is inside and burning the institution down. Today, I learned that it’s...
  • Sen. Corker: White House Meeting...‘One Of The Most Bizarre I’ve Attended’

    White House officials have been holding private meetings this week aimed at soothing lawmakers’ concerns over the U.S. posture in Syria, the future of the American military presence in Afghanistan and defense spending. The meetings come as a frustrated White House seeks to push back at criticism of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy. But the White House outreach appeared to be having little effect on some lawmakers’ concerns. Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, described Tuesday night’s White House meeting with chief of staff Denis McDonough and national security adviser Susan Rice as...

    When an evil assailant opened fire on students attending Parkland High School last week in Florida, JROTC enlistees jumped into action to protect their peers. Grabbing Kevlar mats, they shielded students from a barrage of bullets and saved lives. JROTC Cadet Peter Wang made the ultimate sacrifice and gave his life while holding the door open for people to escape.Wang had dreams of attending West Point Academy after high school and planned to have a career serving his country in the United States Army. He was posthumously admitted to the institution this week. One of USMA's priorities is to develop leaders...

With all the "changes" at the once-highly respected U.S. Military Academy, one would think the Obama general would pose for the cameras to prove how "progressive" he is, but instead he was a no-show.</p>

    Navy midshipmen stand behind "Not Communist" banner. Image via Twitter. The Army-Navy football game has historically been one of the best rivalries in all of sports with fans from both sides displaying creative and insulting signs. Saturday's game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was no different. On the Navy side, midshipmen held signs poking fun at their West Point counterparts for allowing admitted communist and Antifa supporter 2nd Lt. Spenser Rapone to graduate. As PJ Media reported back in September, photos posted on social media by Rapone showed the then-cadet posing with a Che Guevara t-shirt under...

    The case of Second Lt. Spenser Rapone, West Point graduate and U.S. Army officer, has raised a number of issues relative to our military, our Bill of Rights, and our common defense. Lt. Rapone is the West Point graduate who displayed, while in uniform, expressions of support for communism and socialism. He allegedly was critical of national command authority as well. The Army has begun an investigation into how this young officer’s perspectives and anti-authority leanings were not uncovered prior to his graduation despite concerns from some of his academic officers at West Point. When I personally condemned his actions...

  • Undermining America

    Our nation's leftist progressives have long sought to undermine the American values expressed in our Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Though typical Democrats and Republicans do not have this leftist hate for our nation, they have been willing accomplices in undermining the most basic value the Founding Fathers sought to promote -- limited government. Leftists have had their greatest successes in undermining American values on the nation's college campuses. Derelict and dishonest college administrators, professors and boards of trustees have given them carte blanche. Let's look at some of it. Students at the University of Virginia want to remove the...

    The United States Military Academy is being infiltrated and attacked by radical leftists, feminists and Islamists who are on a mission to transform West Point into a bastion of anti-American doctrine, feminist theology and Islamo-Marxist operations, just as they transformed the US Army into a leftist freak show in the last two decades. The Long Gray Line is quickly becoming nothing more than an undisciplined, insubordinate mass of brainwashed, entitled social justice warriors more focused on the LGBT agenda and diversity than they are about putting cold steel down range. After a summer of endless Navy misadventures and collisions at...

    October 12, 2017 To the Men and Women of the Long Gray Line, Some of you may have seen a letter written by retired Lieutenant Colonel Robert Heffington in our graduate forums taking issue with our policies and procedures at West Point. Let me be clear. I am incredibly proud of our cadets, our staff and faculty, and our program. This great institution continues to evolve to meet the needs of today’s Army, and, in doing so, we steadfastly uphold the highest academic, military, physical and disciplinary standards. While we do not compromise standards, we are a developmental institution with...

    Retired Army Lieutenant Colonel Robert Heffington issued an open letter to West Point graduates earlier this week blasting the superintendent, commandant, and dean of the military academy for contributing to a “culture of permissiveness.” The letter was subsequently posted on the website of American Military News. Heffington told The Daily Caller he wrote the letter to the USMA Class of 1963 when several of its graduates contacted him asking how Spenser Rapone, a cadet espousing radically anti-American views, was allowed to graduate. “The Superintendent refuses to enforce admissions standards or the cadet Honor Code, the Dean refuses to enforce academic...

    A West Point cadet whose pro-communism messages on social media were reported to his superiors in 2015 still managed to graduate from the military academy and currently serves in the field with an Army combat team, a new report says. The social media activity of 2nd Lt. Spenser Rapone was concerning, retired Army Lt. Col.

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is demanding the Army kick out the West Point graduate whose pro-communist social media posts are under investigation. In a letter to acting Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy, Rubio questioned how someone with the officer’s social media history received a commission and said the Army should immediately nullify the commission and pursue all available disciplinary options under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. “While I strongly believe academic institutions must respect the exchange of ideas and allow students to voice their opinions, members of the military who harbor anti-American views and express their desire to harm our...

    The U.S. Army is probing a West Point graduate’s pro-communist posts on social media. His father has condemned his political views on social media, and this graduate’s West Point professor has now been placed on administrative leave. If you haven’t been following the saga, you may be overwhelmed by trying to figure out “what exactly is going on?” Here are the facts: 1. His name is Spenser Rapone, and he is a communist. This week, 2nd Lt. Spenser Rapone, a graduate of West Point Military Academy, posted pro-communist images on social media, including a picture of him holding up his...

    After nearly a decade under President Faily McWorsethancarter, can our military win a fight with North Korea? Because if it is unable to perform the basic task of ensuring that the people commissioned to lead our troops in the defense of the United States are actually loyal to the United States, how the hell can we reasonably expect it to be able to conduct high-intensity combat operations against a Nork Army that prioritizes fighting over political correctness? We can’t. I don’t enjoy saying that – it gives me no pleasure to have to wonder whether the Army I served in...

    A classic teachable moment for them that American patriotism will NEVER take a knee You can bury leftist political activism on Facebook, on Google and Twitter, but you can’t (thank God) hide nefarious political intentions from savvy ‘Exclusive: West Point Professor Who Mentored Antifa Soldier on Administrative Leave’. (Breitbart, Sept. 28, 2017) It turns out that the mentor behind pro-Colin Kaepernick West Point Second Lieutenant Spenser Rapone, who brazenly held up a “Communists will win” sign with a clenched fist while dressed in his West Point uniform, is Professor Rasheed Hosein.

    It’s not your father’s army anymore. It’s certainly not your grandfather’s army, nor is it your older brother’s. Whose army is it in 2017: feminists, communists, radical leftists, moral cowards, and perfumed princes and princesses – that’s whose army it is. The lean green machine is in dire straits and for all intents and purposes is about ready to flat line without any chances of resuscitation. Bury the United States Army at Arlington, and engrave on its tombstone, “Killed by cultural Marxists, feminists, feather merchants and moral cowards.” The latest crisis to engulf the army, and for that matter, the...

    Army Pvt. Chelsea Manning, who was sentenced to prison for leaking classified documents and subsequently freed by President Barack Obama, inspired West Point graduate and communist Spenser Rapone to infiltrate the military. Rapone has come under fire and become the subject of an Army investigation after reports emerged of his open and unabashed support for communism and tweets he made calling for political violence and referring to Secretary of Defense James Mattis as an “evil, vile f***.” In a Reddit post regarding Manning, Rapone spelled out some of his motivations for remaining in the military and exactly what he wanted...
