Navy Secretary and Former Goldman Sachs Executive, Richard Spencer, Denies Threatening President Trump…

The Secretary of Navy, former Wall Street global banking executive Richard V Spencer, holds a press availability to deny threatening the President of The United States.

Secretary Spencer denies a report he threatened to resign if President Donald Trump intervened in the case of Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher, and said he works at the pleasure of the president. He also refuted a report that Rear Adm. Collin Green also threatened to resign.

    Given the Navy’s complete travesty of justice in Chief Galagher’s trial and prosecution, which Navy leadership at the Pentagon level either directed or, at a minimum, allowed to continue and after their judicial travesty had been revealed, CONTINUED to press for removing his Seal Trident, (There could be NO greater insult to this American HERO!) I suspect that there may have been some truth to the NYT’s story. (I KNOW, shock, right?). The Navy (in which I served, lo those many years ago) has turned into a complete clusterfark. Witness, the “Fat Leonard” supply scandal and the series of mysterious ship collisions, ALL of which happened in the Pacific AO (area of operations) currently contested by whom? The Chinese!

    IF this was NOT insubordination, it certainly is indicative of incompetence. At a minimum, these two (and probably others) should be refreshing their resumes and plan on early retirement.

      Well, moments ago Eddie Gallagher just appeared on POTUS’s favorite show, Fox and Friends, calling out Spencer for personally interfering in his case and Green for his vengeful ego. This should heat things up…

        Sometimes you need to know when to shut up. I am totally on his side, but if this is true, it is like the little kids you are trying to separate when fighting and one won’t shut up to let things cool off.

          In this case, I could see it being appropriate, as Gallagher trying to make it clear to everyone that Spencer is in fact a Swamp rat.

          As a 10 year veteran of the army, I support Eddie 100 percent.. the officer corps across the DoD needs to seriously be called to account. They are letting in avowed communists. DO NOT TRUST THE OFFICER CORPS! THEY DO NOT ENDURE MOST OF WHAT IT IS TO BE A SERVICE MEMBER AND ARE NOT HELD TO THE SAME STANDARDS! IT IS THE EASIEST ELEMENT OF THE MILITARY TO INFILTRATE!

        The headline states that Spencer is a former Golden Slacks executive which makes his integrity less than perfect.

      Insubordination and incompetence are not mutually exclusive here.

      They are the call sign of the class of political sycophant that the Obama Administration and Congress put in place to carry out Iranian and China policy.

      It happened everywhere in the Flag Ranks but the US Navy was hardest hit of the military services

    Career Navy reporting in here. Once past the inane questions, this Secretary of the Navy is impressive. Compare him to Husseins’ Mabus and you’ll see why. We ought to be grateful for Sec Spencer. My friends still in say the same.

      I wonder though after the Vindman testimony in uniform that offered opinions against POTUS not allowed under the UCMJ rules and the DoD does nothing. At a minimum they should remove him from the NSC which by convention is their responsibility, not POTUS’.

        It is my understanding that Vindman belongs to DIA, who reports to civilian level directly under SecDef. CJCS/JCS is not in DIA/Lindman’s chain of command. I am not an expert on this, so take with a grain of salt, as the saying has it.

    If we train our men to be killers, we have no excuses when they do go out and kill. What the heck is the matter with our military anyway. His trial was only a show trail for the world to see, to give the impression that we are not as bad as the Jihadist because we supposedly prosecute our own who supposedly go outside the bounds of accepted killing practices. This is absurd, don’t you think?
    This same crap went on in Vietnam, but you didn’t hear anything, until one of our trained psychopaths, Lt. Cally, slaughtered a whole village, just because. Our boys must walk a fine line between being able to kill military targets and losing it and wiping out humanity indiscriminately.

    The Ellie Gallagher case, the bogus trial and more recently the ego driven retaliation to take his Trident tells us volumes of how Obama with his Rules of Engagement and Senate approved appointments was intent on destroying our great military from within, crushing the morale of our great heroes. Trump told the rank and file he has their six.

    What a surprise the press has lied to us yet again. There is absolutely nothing you can believe that is in print in the Times or the Post these days. The are not to be believed in any way shape or form when it comes to reporting on the President or anything he does. They have become treasonous to the American people and our Constitution far from being the watchdogs they are meant to be. Lap dogs to the DNC and the communists running that party now are all they are.

    The administrative state and their media have proven many times throughout the last 30 years that leaking lies jump starts their dreams.. Thankfully it appears people are starting to wake up.

    For all I can tell SecNav Spencer is finally teaching our naval professionals to quit crashing ships and restoring some order. If that is the case, good on these guys.

    So grateful President Trump is now our President. He understand the purpose of our military.
    The military is not a community outreach program as conceived by the Anointed One, Barack Hussein Obama.
    The purpose of the military is to kill the enemy and destroy his property.
    President Trump allowed commanders to set the rules of engagement. This resulted in the destruction of ISIS in Iraq/Syria before the Obama Appointees brushed their teeth and gargled their mouthwash.

    Taking away Gallagher’s Trident is a career ender. If he was already eligible for retainer pay, I would tell him to go to the next duty station in his rate and finish up his time. I’ve known sailors in circumstances that make it obvious for them to get out of a program, get out of the service, find somewhere else to apply their skills.

    Directly involved in the Gallagher case, and others, is the 2008 SCOTUS decision that enemy combatants are entitled to the rights of US citizens, specifically trial with defense attorneys, rules of evidence, US-standard incarceration, etc., all paid by the branch who captured the enemy combatant. Meaning, US taxpayer. This gives US Mil incentive to (1), drone them dead, (2) kill them in custody, (3) pen them up overseas using proxies, e.g. Kurds, Iraqis, etc. That was the GWB SCOTUS, by the way!

    When ever you feel inclined to give automatic deference to a US Military Officer, google Spencer Repone.. remember that the entire West Point CoC knew he was an avowed communist.. and ever after complaints on the guy, they did nothing about it. He graduated and received a commission and the Army only acted when it hit the press. This is the absolute state of our officer corps.
