"in a military capacity"

...doing what?
 
2020-08-02 3:39:12 AM  
This thread instead?  Oh, alright..

The vice president has only 2 jobs.  Tie breaking votes in the Senate, and taking over if the president dies.  He has no authority to do this.  But he did it anyway for someone Missouri Republicans didn't want anymore.

Typically republican behavior. Rather than eliminate him themselves, let's put him in the navy so his entire unit can "accidentally" get wiped out...

You know, for a guy who is as supposedly moral as Pence is, he sure seems to pal around with sex offenders a lot.

This cannot possibly be the same Mike Pence who brags about being a Christian, a conservative, and a Republican - in that order.

It must be a different Mike Pence - the one tossed his supposed principles by the wayside to serve as Robin to djt's Batman. Greitens took compromising photos of this woman and threatened her with blackmail, convincingly enough that he was forced to resign as governor, and Pence pulled strings to get him back in the Navy?

Why - it's almost as if those principles were made of fairy dust and gossamer.

"The whole chain of command from SECDEF [the Secretary of Defense] on down are supportive of him coming in so we're just trying to make this as painless and quick as possible."

Fark this administration with the bullshiat they are pulling in the military.  This shiat, along with the exoneration of the murderer Eddie Gallagher is poisoning the military.

The guy's a total creep. And so is Greitens.

Biden got his cokehead son into the Navy Reserve with an age waiver and a drug use waiver (basically NEVER approved for commissioned officers). I'd call this one a nothingburger.

This could be one of the biggest political scandals in the news - if Pence was a Democrat.

/Looking at you, Fox News, Hearst Family.

As everyone knows, pence as well as all christians are 100% in favor of rape and rapists.
 
2020-08-02 10:20:06 AM  
Well, when you realize blackmail is a condoned political technique by this administration, this is perfectly consistent.

No Lady G, I didn't mention you specifically.
 
2020-08-02 10:21:15 AM  
So I guess we can start calling him Mike "sex crimes" Pence. Because of how good he is at making sex crime consequences go away. It's ok, I'm sure people will get it.

The military has pretty high standards for officers. There are occasional glitches but they do a good job of maintaining them. As soon as politicians get involved, you get TFA. You get pardoned war criminals. You get mid-level people blacklisted by the POTUS for doing their job.

And the most asinine part of all: the assholes like Pence and Trump pushing this crap have zero military experience. They have zero regard for the good order and discipline that is the foundation of the armed services. They know not what they do.

Have you ever wondered what it was like to live through a barbarian invasion, where all that is good and true is destroyed, and the treasury looted?   The soldiers on watch who first report the danger are thrown on their swords under the pressure of their new overlords.    Wonder no more.

Navy, huh.

Pretty sure NAVSUPPFAC Diego Garcia is chronically short-staffed...

Let's be clear: this is what Mike Pence, vice-president of the United States and so-called "Christian" is promoting:

The fine marked the end of the former governor's legal troubles, which began in 2015 when a woman testified under oath that she felt forced to perform sexual acts with Greitens after he tied her up and took explicit photos of her.  He threatened to release them if she ever spoke about their relationship. Greitens  denied ever engaging in blackmail.

Won't stop him from trying to force himself to be relevant again like he's been trying to do.

It's like he's trying the state to a bunch of exercise equipment and blackmailing us.

To be sure, had a intel troop get a BS and wanted to go OCS.  Top notch cat who knew his stuff, embraced the Force, wanted to be a positive influence.  Coached him through the AFOQT, good scores, denied because he had been cited for pissing on a building in Chicago 5 years prior to entering service. He separated. SMFH

IIRC, it wasn't the blackmail allegations that got him to step down, it was the judge in the ethics investigation that ordered him to identify the sources of the dark money contributions.

Omnivorous: a woman testified under oath that she felt forced to perform sexual acts with Greitens after he tied her up and took explicit photos of her


We later found out her testimony was a lie. She had given a sworn interview with the prosecutor where she admitted she was dreaming about photos being taken.
