Obama To Allow Beards and Turbans In U.S. Military – But BANS Navy SEAL Flag!!! (UPDATE)

Yesterday we learned of the Obama administration’s allowance for beards and turbans to be allowed by soldiers serving in the U.S. Military.  Some are already stating this was in deference to Sikhs serving, but there are currently only THREE active duty Sikhs in our military, and nearly FOUR THOUSAND known Muslims.  Combine this with Muslim terrorist killer Nidal Malik Hasan, who shot and killed 13 and injured 30 at Fort Hood while serving as an Army Major, and his recent demand to be able to grow a beard while in military prison.  And at nearly the same time as this was happening, the Obama administration quietly ordered the banning of the centuries old Navy Jack flag on military uniforms, citing the flag as being associated with “radical groups”.  Apparently, Barack Obama and his legion of progressive leftists, feel the history of our Navy and Navy SEALS, is just far too “radical.”

The Navy Jack flag has been associated with the U.S. Military for over 200 years, worn proudly on the shoulders of our Navy SEALS.  Until now. The military has ordered the long-standing symbol BANNED, while at the same time, allowing for Muslim-friendly beards and turbans to be worn by soldiers.  Please spread the word of this outrage.

Navy SEALs ordered to remove ‘don’t tread on me’ Navy Jack from uniforms

The Navy Jack is the ‘don’t tread on me’ flag, one that has earned a revered place in America’s naval history and a beloved place in sailor’s hearts, through its use for over two centuries. This symbol of America’s naval ferocity has spanned our country’s entire existence, flying from the masts of the Continental Navy during the war of independence, to today’s War on Terror. In fact, an amendment to the Navy code called SECNAV Instruction 10520.6 clearly states that as of 31 May 2002 all ships are to fly the flag throughout the duration of the War on Terror.

…Clearly the administration and sycophant “top brass” officers have degraded America’s military prestige; from hand-tying rules of engagement, to uniform regulations that make our military allegedly more compatible with foreign forces, to the banning of an awe-inspiring flag that traces its roots to the first U.S. Navy.

During my two deployments to Iraq, “Don’t  Tread on Me” was a phrase seen on nearly every uniform and platoon space — including mine. From patches to flags to large paintings on concrete barriers, our commanders themselves wore the insignia on their sleeves — until now.

Perhaps this is why so many of my former teammates felt compelled to send me the email below. They may not be able to expose the administration’s travesty, but I can. The email, dated October 22, reads:


WARCOM and GROUP TWO/ONE have pushed out the uniform policy for NWU III and any patches worn on the sleeve.

All personnel are only authorized to wear the matching “AOR” American Flag patch on the right shoulder.  You are no longer authorized to wear the “Don’t Tread On Me” patch.

Again the only patch authorized for wear is the American flag on the right shoulder. Please pass the word to all

…Why would they rob present and future sailors of our battle cry?

When a friend of mine asked his leadership the same question, he was told, “The Jack is too closely associated with radical groups.” We must assume that this thought policeman embedded in the SEAL community is speaking of the Tea Party, whose flag (which also dates from the American Revolution) depicts a snake with the same defiant slogan as The Navy Jack.

This begs yet another question: Who defines “radical group”? The last time I checked, all military personnel are under oath to “support and defend the constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” The Tea Party stands for constitutional rights and founding principles of civil liberties and limited government. Radical? Not unless you’re a leftist hell-bent on destroying the foundations of our country. Or as the President has stated as the objective of his presidency, “to fundamentally transform” America.

My friends asked me what they should do about this order. I answer them by saying, “You took an oath to defend this country from enemies foreign and domestic. Will you put your career before country? Will you put your career before your sacred oath?” I cannot tell anyone how to respond. I can tell you though that an enemy — foreign or domestic — that tries to take the Navy Jack from my uniform could only do so by ripping the patriotic patch from the uniform of my cold, dead body.

We all have choices to make. The Obama administration and the yes-men top brass have decided to wage war on our Navy’s heritage. Will the SEALs choose to defend that heritage and defy them, with all the impertinence the flag’s slogan implies? Or will they be tread upon?  LINK


It is worth repeating – The Obama administration is allowing Muslim-friendly beards and turbans, but has BANNED the centuries old Navy Jack symbol due to its close association with “radical groups”.

In the Obama military, the appearance of the man above is ok, but the Navy Jack symbol is banned.

Madness anyone?


UPDATE:  Subsequent reports indicate military brass backed off the banning of the Navy SEAL flag, calling it a “misunderstanding”.  Kudos to the Daily Caller’s Carl Higbie (former Navy SEAL) whose original article on this set in motion the push back that resulted in the administration and its military command cohorts to back off.  This is a victory for the alternative media, without which, this story would never had seen the light of day.  -UM

      In Their Own Words: Lenin, Stalin, Obama, and Hillary
      By Andrew Thomas

      It is beneficial to remind ourselves periodicallyof the realities in the struggle between Constitutionalism / Capitalism and Marxism-Leninism. Itis a continual struggle, whether we acknowledge it or not. And the enemy of America as a constitutional republic with a capitalistic economic system isMarxism-Leninism, whether it be characterized as communism, socialism, progressivism, leftism, statism, or liberalism (in its current state).

      Historically, we can consider the birth of the fusion between Marxism and Leninism to be in 1917, when Vladimir Lenin first took power as the leader of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, later to be known as the USSR. Lenin was the leader of the Bolshevik Revolution that gave the world its first taste of socialism, established as Communism. He transformed the political philosophy of Marxism into his own brand, Marxism-Leninism. Here are a few of his famous quotations1:

    • VTX
    • I’d like to make a comparison – but please note that I’m not approving the actions of one of the two I’m comparing; I am not a fan of Manning:

      Bradley Manning: revealed no actual Top Secret data (though a lot was really embarrasing) and was held in isolation in a cold, dark cell, often naked (suicide watch.) His supporters called it “torture.” At best, it was not comfortable. I’m not arguing the merits of the treatment, but compared with…

      Major Nidal Hasan, the bearded wuss:
      “An investigation by KXAS-TV in Dallas-Fort Worth revealed Hasan during that time had cost taxpayers the following:

      $200,000 spent on daily helicopter rides to ferry Hasan from the jail to Fort Hood
      Tens of thousands of dollars setting up a private Fort Hood office for Hasan, who insisted on representing himself at trial
      $5 million in expenses, travel for government lawyers, fees paid to expert witnesses, vehicles and cell phones purchased and major security renovations at the base; $300,000 in military pay between his arrest and his dishonorable discharge in September 2013. KXAS-TV was the first to send a news crew inside the jail and see the room known as MW1, the medical ward that housed Hasan before he was eventually moved to the United States Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas, where he today awaits execution while his case is on appeal.

      “The news crew reported the room was much larger than a typical cell and would normally house up to three inmates, but was granted to Hasan alone, along with a private guard who watched him through a window at least 12 hours a day and took notes on what Hasan read and watched on television. (Note: Manning did have access to television, but not his own private tv)

      Even Hasan’s civil attorney balked at the all the expense.

      “I mean, it’s just a bunch of overkill,” attorney John Galligan told KXAS-TV. “Unnecessary funds that were spent.”

      In addition, the Bell County Sheriff’s Office was paid nearly $650,000 to house Hasan, and in return, official records reveal, Hasan filled his jailors’ lives with nearly incessant grief.

      For example, on April 15, 2010, Hassan demanded a clock so he could roll over every two hours to avoid bed sores, visits from an imam and the temperature held at no less than 70 degrees. (Manning was denied a blanket)

      A jail officer responded that the medical staff would ensure he did not suffer bed sores, that a Sgt. Alexander and Hasan’s own doctor had confirmed the cell’s temperature between 70 and 74 degrees, and that the local Muslim community had been contacted to see if someone would visit.

      Hasan filed a repeat request on April 19, complaining of the cold, no clock and no visits from an imam – and when on April 24 his demands had not been met, the inmate began defecating in his cell’s trash can.

      “I request that you properly evacuate your bowel,” the officer handling Hasan’s requests responded. “You know how to do it properly, and now after 19 days, you want to do it improperly. This has nothing to do with my staff. Do what you are supposed to do, Major Hasan.”

      Nonetheless, Hasan’s complaints kept pouring in, sometimes more than once daily.”

      Yeah, it’s odd: that tough terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, bent on jihad, murdering innocent and unarmed coworkers – now whines like a little Princess, while the transgender-dude shows him (at least a little more) how to act like a man.

      Meanwhile, our Seals are set up for murder in helicopters in Afghanistan, sent on missions designed to fail in Africa and treated like the enemy by a Presidunce who was more than willing to take credit for their heroism.

      Eff the President. Fool.

      ‘Top Secret’ Documents Implicate Obamas, Clintons

      By Walid Shoebat

      By Walid Shoebat and Ben Barrack


      Shocking documents (screen shots at bottom of this post) by Egyptian security forces monitoring the movements of Malik Obama’s Islamic Da’wa Organization (IDO) and the father (Essam el-Haddad) of a former Clinton employee (Gehad El-Haddad) sheds further light on the nefarious dealings of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. These documents could implicate the Obamas and the Clintons as being complicit in endangering national security.

      ‘Top Secret’ Document implicates Clintons and Obamas.

      Al-Masry Network also published the claims of intelligence sources showing that Malik Obama’s Organization is the main sponsor to Islamize the Nuba area, Aswan and Luxor. The Aswan region is a territory in southeastern Egypt that borders northern Sudan, which includes a long stretch of the Nile river. During the Mohammed Mursi regime, both Egypt and Sudan (under Omar al-Bashir) would have presented an opportunity to work toward the slow erasure of the border between the two nations. Such negotiations in Aswan would have predictably caused Egypt’s Security Forces great concern.

      Documents leaked by Egyptian security forces implicate Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton along with her husband in supporting Muslim Brotherhood terrorists.

      Barack Obama has long been a supporter of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization. In September 2013, President Obama praised the American Muslim Brotherhood Convention via videotape.

      It’s not a secret Obama supported the Muslim Brotherhood and jailed dictator Mohammad Morsi.

      World Net Daily reported:

      Two new, classifed documents leaked by Egyptian security implicate President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton in the aiding and abetting of terrorists.

      The documents have been entered as evidence in the criminal trials of former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi and other top Muslim Brotherhood leaders, scheduled to begin next month in Cairo.

      Obtained by Arabic-speaking former Palestinian Liberation Organization-member Walid Shoebat and posted Thursday on his website, the two leaked documents provide evidence Egyptian security forces have monitored the movements and activities of Obama’s half-brother, Malik Obama, and his Islamic Dawa Organization, or IDO. The security forces also have kept an eye on the dealings with the Muslim Brotherhood of Essam El-Haddad, the father of Gehad El-Haddad, a senior adviser to the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States and a former employee of the William J. Clinton Foundation.

      This is not the first time we’ve heard this… Saed al-Shater, the son of Khairat el-Shatar, told the Anatolia News Agency in Turkey that his father has evidence that will land Barack Obama in prison.
