Marine Officer Who Criticized Leadership Sentenced

Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller slammed leadership during the botched Afghanistan withdrawal.

When Scheller came forward, his superiors immediately disciplined him, a fate he knew was coming his way.

After six charges were filed and a dishonorable discharge loomed, Scheller pleaded guilty on all charges.

Surprising Sentence

Honestly, I thought they were going to make an example of Scheller.

A dishonorable discharge seemed to be the least of his worries, with brig time very much a possibility if they really wanted to go after him.

Instead, he reached a plea deal with far less severe consequences than I ever would have imagined.

Scheller will get a letter of reprimand in his file and forfeit $5,000 of his salary.

All six charges that were filed were considered misdemeanor charges.

The fact Scheller had an impeccable service record over his 17 years in the Marines clearly weighed heavily on this decision, as it should have.

Prosecutors recommended the forfeiture of pay for five months rather than one, so the sentence was significantly less than they had hoped.

A week ago, Joe Biden told Americans that prices aren’t actually high.

But the numbers don’t lie.

Inflation is up 14.4% since Biden took office.

And all the president can offer are more lies.

Inflation ⬆️ more than expected.

Overall CPI: +6.4% y/y
Fuel Oil: +27.7%
Electricity: +11.9%
Groceries: +11.3%
Chicken +10.5%
Milk: +11%
Eggs: +70.1%
Bread: +14.9%
Potatoes: +12.4%
Baby Food: +10%
Airline Fares: +25.6%
Real Average Hourly Earnings: -1.8%

Year-over-year real wages have been negative for 22 months - ever since Biden forced through his $1.9 trillion "stimulus."

That's a wages recession for American workers.
