    There is something entirely wrong with the way these unelected ones try to dictate our lives without our census and therefore must not be allowed to continue.

    How often did we the people and the rank and file military soldier watch the Obama admin trample on established military procedures and norms? A partial list: forcing weirdos into the ranks, setting up dangerous ROE (rules of engagement), forcing sensitivity training on the fighting men and women, how about labeling the Hassan military base killing in TX as man-caused disaster instead of Islamic terrorism?, the Bradley Manning affair and other depredations on veterans like the VA chaos, the Benghazi fiasco that killed the Ambassador and ordering the military to stand down during that conflict. The other egregious act is appointing the PC brass that hurts our military. Yet, the American people did virtually nothing to oppose the Odumbass.

    Once again, the “brass” has proven that they are too political to have a clear mind on real world issues. Gallagher is a 20 year veteran of the US Navy Seals and should be treated as such. Some of his team mates didn’t like him, but he has proven himself in a long career of dangerous assignments. As a Special Forces officer, I salute him and wish him safe passage into retirement.

    Finally, we have a president that gives a dam. Vote Trump 2020. Do not be politically ignorant.

    Right on target!

    I don’t care how many dead combatants he poses with, as long as he’s not autographing and sending to the scumbags relatives……but maybe he should……lol. it would certainly show the asshole made a bad career choice. Bottom line is Gallagher did what patriots for this country want him to do, and a fine job in my mind. Anyone with sympathy for our enemies needs to move to that country because you are not wanted here !!!!

    Sorry Larry.

    Until we start electing our uniform military leadership (shades of the Russian Revolution), I would go with the “unelected bureaucrats in this case. Anybody who had spent anytime in the armed services understands the need for proper discipline. Even as a young recruit getting his ass kicked by DIs, I understood what they were doing.

    trump is destroying proper order and morale within the military – not fighting the “dark state”.

    I agree. I served in , Vietnam, Marines infantry. Many pictures werr taken with corpses. It has been done since camera’s were available. Not the first not the last.

    Bureaucrats should be replaced every 5 years. Congress needs to reclaim their decision making responsibilities, and accept responsibility for the decisions they make, regarding all aspects of the government. I realize it will not be popular with the members of congress, but it is necessary to preserve the Republic.

    Of course Bureaucrats should be replaced , as well as term limits for all elected officials.The President is term limited why shouldn’t all elected officials be? Just remember what caused the fall of the Roman Empire (Unelected Greedy Politicians) They fell from within .We seemed to be following their template. It won’t be fossil fuels that take us out it will be lifetime Bureaucrats.WAKE UP AMERICA.
