Former SEAL Rob O’Neill Discusses Flag Officer Corrupt Behavior in Gallagher Case….

Former Navy SEAL Rob O’Neill appears on Fox News to discuss the political corruption in amid the Flag officers within the military.   WATCH:


O’Neill rightly points out how DC bureaucrats are confusing the purpose of warfighters and President Trump is focused on the common sense approach. Former Navy Secretary Richard Spencer embarrassed himself by violating the chain-of-command and then criticizing President Trump over a lack of “order and discipline” within that same command structure. Ridiculous.

      Trump puts his money where his mouth is. It has to imbue deep loyalty in those guys to see him stand up for them against their bureaucrat bosses.

      Whether its trade, individual rights, or criminal justice reform, this “sticking up for the little guy” thing about Trump is not talked about in media, but I guarantee you that it makes a difference in 2020. Trump goes to battle for the little guy every day in order to make their America great at the expense of the same globalist elite who brought us the trade deficit with China, the TPP, NAFTA, the Iraq war and endless regime change disasters like Libya and Ukraine.

      Trump is all manner of imperfect, but he is truly putting it on the line for the little guy and FIGHTING for them all the way to the end.

    I’ll put it this way. When the incident involving Operator Chief Gallagher became visible to the press it became political. Usually the offense in question is investigated and a decision of corrective action is suggested. The accused is then offered the recommended action or can choose a court martial. If the incident is embarrassing to the service or Higher Command makes it known the case may go straight to Courts Martial. Chief Gallagher probably rejected the proposed action and pissed off the Higher Command and this became an “Example” case.
    Thank you Pres. Trump for your intervention. A previous administration removed most of the dirty boots warriors and put many activists in their place. House cleaning must be done to put the barracks in order.

      Well, that is dependent on the incident. With Haditha, there was a native “human rights” clown there who got video of part of the aftermath of the fight. The incident was investigated and found to be justified shortly after it happened. The native kept showing the video around until the press got it, specifically Time magazine, and everything blew up from there. It was made worse by a Pentagon swamp rat that was unnamed. It was nothing more than a way to smear the military action taken by Bush, and those sent to take that action.

      Contrast that with the “incident” involving Bradley Manning, who has been lauded by the left for years as a hero, and who should have never have seen the light of day again.

      What happened to Gallagher makes me think he made someone’s feelings hurt, and that someone’s ego could not handle it.

    It’s stuff like this which makes you realize why totalitarian leaders like Stalin purged their governments when they seized power. They knew the government would contain a 5th Column intent on their destruction. It’s why, for example, Obama fired so many flag officers. He needed those voices purged…the new-fangled sort of purge where you fire not murder them.

    It’s why Trump’s biggest mistake was also his first mistake. Instead of that Executive Order travel ban, his first move should have been to fire every political appointee in every department at every level. Just a wholesale pink-slip of “the resistance” followed by total declassification of the most controversial stories of the Obama years – such as what was really going on in Benghazi that got the Ambassador murdered and why Obama and McCain covered it up.

    The 5th Column “resistance” has revealed a cancer in our government that must be excised.

        Nah, I just believe in the old aphorism, “When you’re up to your ass in alligators, it’s hard to remember that your original objective was to drain the swamp.” D.C. needs more dead alligators, and if you do a mass culling all at once instead of one at a time, you make it harder for people to isolate the firings and contest them. McConnell would still slow things up, but POTUS has shown that he can still get things done with a lot less people than D.C. typically thinks it needs.

        It’s like that report a couple years ago that Trump hadn’t staffed the “Climate Adviser” office in the White House. How can the country go on living without a “Climate Adviser” in the WH?! Apparently…just fine!

    There is so very much more to CPO Gallagher’s case than any of these people are articulating.
    The bottom line is – none of them know a dam thing!

    Larry O’Conner has been following this case from the start. As such, Larry O’Conner got the interview with CPO Gallgher’s attorney.
    The sheet going on behind this case – CPOGate – is the same as RussiaGate/SpyGate.
    Exactly the same.

    First, all Pres Trump did was to restore CPO Gallagher’s rank. Everything – EVERYTHING – else remained the same. Nothing changed. Only CPO Gallgher’s rank was restored.

    Second – NCIS used Navy Counterintellegence to obtain warrants to eavesdrop (SPY) on all CPO Gallagher’s attorneys and a journalist – phone calls, emails, the works. NCIS then used the Navy Counterintelligence information to build a criminal case.

    Starting to sound familiar?????

    Third – the case summaries did not match the facts attached to the case. Admiral Green read the summaries and ignored (did not read) the facts.

    Having deja vu yet?????

    Pres Trump had his people read the details, found out about the spying etc etc etc,, and restored CPO Gallgher’s rank and thus his pension.

    The only part that was correct came from CPO Gallagher’s interview this past weekend – it was all politics.

    Now ask yourself – why did Pres Trump restore CPO Gallgher’s rank?
    And then you’ll know why we love this President.

    There is much much more. CPO Gallagher lost much more than what anyone is acknowledging.

      The audio clips from the Larry O Connor show were quite an eye opener to me.

      I was not following the Eddie Gallagher trial and not familiar with his case of why or what he was exactly charged with.

      After listening to these two clips I wonder who had it in for this poor guy.

      He was found ” not guilty” on all of the charges but one, the one of taking a photo of the dead terrorist.

      But amazingly the WHOLE platoon took the photo with the dead guy but Eddie Gallagher was the only one charged.

      And for this Gallagher loses his pension.

      Just amazing.

The picture which I imagine was some kind of trophy for the men, which to a civilian seems a little creepy, was probably something they thought they needed at the time. I can see why the would want it. A photo is not that far out there It’s concerning how the military had it in Eddie. They went after him before Trump was in the picture. Thank God Trump had Eddie’s back and followed thus through to the end. Trump is a true commander and chief.

      Esper said he did not know Spencer went to the WH with his list of demands until last Friday.
      It makes me think Esper also either did not know the details regarding Gallagher, and/or may have only accepted what he was told….likely by Spencer.
      I got the impression from Esper’s comments he was rather PO’d about what Spencer did when he found out the details from the WH. Almost as if he realized how BS had been shoveled his way by Spencer. With the way Spencer has been whining from his resignation letter to today in the media, I can believe Spencer shoveled a lot of bull.

    Hunter Biden was allowed to join the Navel Reserve at Norfolk VA even though he was too old and had a drug problem. Hunter didn’t last out the year, he got caught twice with cocaine.

    Now we see the Navel mentality that allowed that on display and the “democratness” of it leaves a normal person dumb-founded.

    President Trump pardoned a Navy Seal the Good Order and Discipline guy wanted punished. Good Order and Discipline guy’s nose went out of joint, so he tried to demonstrate his power by sending, as Seal Oneill says, a shot across the President of the United States bow.
    He wanted to drag the Presidentially Pardoned Seal before a review board and punish him anyway.
    President Trump told Good Order and Discipline guy to forget it and get back to business.

    So to try and save his face, the Good Order and Discipline guy disregards his chain of command and offers the stupidest deal I ever heard of to the the President.

    Good Order and Discipline guy says to POTUS:
    I know you don’t want me to be humiliated in public so if you just announce to the world that I’ve backed you down, I will rig the outcome of the Review and let the Presidentially Pardoned Seal keep his trident.
    I’ll all be good, he says, the Seal will get to keep his trident like you wanted, and I will appear to be superior to the Commander in Chief, and the rest of the Seals watching all this – well they are too dumb to figure out what we pulled anyway.

    He offered this deal the the man who has been plagued by back stabbing, two faced, weaklings, who have way too high an opinion of them selves since the day
    he came down that golden escalator.

    And as an aside, now we know how Humper Biden got his sweetheart deal with the Navel Reserve that meant nothing to him. Shame on you U,S, Navy and on you too Joint Chiefs of Staff Officers.
