A few years ago I might have been more surprised by stuff like this, but in the age of Obama nothing is surprising:

For more than two years, the Navy’s intelligence chief has been stuck with a major handicap: He’s not allowed to know any secrets.

Vice Adm. Ted “Twig” Branch has been barred from reading, seeing or hearing classified information since November 2013, when the Navy learned from the Justice Department that his name had surfaced in a giant corruption investigation involving a foreign defense contractor and scores of Navy personnel.

Worried that Branch was on the verge of being indicted, Navy leaders suspended his access to classified materials. They did the same to one of his deputies, Rear Adm. Bruce F. Loveless, the Navy’s director of intelligence operations.

More than 800 days later, neither Branch nor Loveless has been charged. But neither has been cleared, either. Their access to classified information remains blocked.

The current U.S. Director of Naval Intelligence has less access to secrets than an ensign. If he wants to see classified material he’ll have to ask Hillary if he can borrow her email server.

    I read this a couple days ago – and all I can say – is how low can this administration go with our military. Either charge him and boot him and put someone in his place or stop with these fu$%ing rules of engagement that have now infected our national security. And Hillary is sending and receiving information that may have the names, locations, etc with undercover people trying to protect us???? Please, for the love of God, vote Ted Cruz so we can rid ourselves of these incompetents!!!

    Speaking of Hillary. From the Friday document drop we learned that 22 emails on Hillary's server were so classified that if any part of them were released it would be detrimental to National Security (or possibly implicate Obama in something).

    The State Dept is starting to backtrack on whether or not Hillary's emails were classified when they originated:

    But I have a feeling we are headed for a huge showdown over this considering what the WH spokesidiot Earnest is saying and what the analysis is over what may happen if there is no indictment.

    If I were that Navy Intel chief I would be praying that they decline to prosecute Hillary, then use that as my defense. This is what I think the FBI is fearful of, that the administration will tell the AG to not prosecute which will make it nearly impossible to ever prosecute anyone again.

    According to Drudge – Obama emailed Hillary 18 times – like to see those emails!

    Totally outside of [standard] protocol. Were it any Enlisted, rank & file soldier, airman, marine, you'd be in the process of being discharged.

    We had (1) clown skimming the base club and it took me forever to out-process him. About a year's worth of paperwork, hearings, appeals etc. Limited to NO access and a window-watcher, 'position' while justice ran its course.

    But it DID happen. If there truly IS dirt on these two, why are they still drawing PAYCHECKS almost 3 years later..?

    And the WH's response would be.., shutting down Breitbart.com?

    You know, with the way this administration had commandeered American pop-culture ( starting w/ Facebook and virtually ALL social media ) there's going to one HELL of an implosion when He leaves/is forced from office.

    Pulling a 180 to vilifying whomever it is that gets elected, resurrecting Code Pink/OWS etc. simply won't fill the void! It ( the LSM ) has only existed to function as their echo chamber in spreading propaganda.

    What will be their function NOW?
