Officers censured for bringing ’embarrassment’ on Navy in ‘Fat Leonard’ scandal


WASHINGTON — Navy Secretary Richard Spencer has issued letters of censure to a retired rear admiral and two other officers found to have accepted inappropriate gifts and maintained unethical relationships with “Fat” Leonard Francis, the central figure in a widespread fraud investigation.

The censures – formal, permanent acknowledgements of wrongdoing – were issued last week to retired Rear Adm. Richard Wren, retired Capt. Timothy Conroy and Capt. Charles Johnson, the Navy announced Wednesday in a statement. The letters do not impact retirement benefits or pay for the officers reprimanded.

Why doesn’t it impact pay or retirement benefits?  Why aren’t there criminal penalties?



GUNS: Failure to prosecute allowed “gun control” to fail


Accused newsroom shooter’s stalking victim: I warned cops

*** begin quote ***

A woman who claimed that the Capital Gazette shooting suspect had stalked, harassed and sued her warned a former police official that “he will be your next mass shooter,” according to a new report.

The woman, whose name was not released, also told local station WBAL 11that Jarrod W. Ramos, 38, the shotgun-toting man who allegedly burst into the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Md., on Thursday, killing five staffers, was “a f—ing nut job.”

Jayne Miller, an investigative reporter at WBAL, tweeted that the woman told her Ramos became “fixated” on her for no obvious reason — causing her to move three times, change her name and even sleep with a gun out of fear.

Imagine if just one person in the newsroom was armed?

But the Gooferment want “We, The Sheeple” disarmed so this keeps happening.  

The newspaper didn’t want to prosecute for fear of making the situation worse.  Guess that tactic didn’t work.

So we have a double failure of “gun control”: (1) folks have to prosecute the evil people so that “gun control” has even a chance of working; and (2) “gun control” kept the victims from being able to defend themselves.

So sad and so avoidable.

Requiescat In Pacem, America!

USB-C to USB-A Adapter

My tech adoption generally consists of long periods of inertia punctuated with the occasional frenzy of replacement. But I’m very glad to see USB C catch on, even if it means one of those frenzies. While none of our household’s phones are yet equipped with USB C, my Asus Chromebook is, as is my GoPro camera — and I know it’s the wave of the (near-term) future.

“My tech adoption generally consists of long periods of inertia punctuated with the occasional frenzy of replacement.”

Since I’ve been “retired”, I’ve moved from “bleeding edge” to “being dragged along kicking and screaming”.

New Jersey, not exactly known for giving the people living within its borders freedom, has just passed a law that declares all guns which hold more than ten rounds of ammunition “illegal.” The state is ordering people to surrender their guns or become criminals.

Like the gun owners in the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerk, hopefully everyone will just ignore it.
