There is a saying that is attributed to Voltaire that says, “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.”

That’s what we’re seeing across the country today and especially now following the Afghanistan disaster.

After standing up for truth and calling out the Biden administration on their disastrous Afghanistan debacle, Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller was promptly fired from his position and expects to receive jail time should the Marine Corps decide to court-martial him.

Scheller is facing these threats for the “crime” of criticizing Joe Biden and his administration’s handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal in a Facebook post.

Specifically, Scheller lashed out at military leadership and the Biden admin for the deadly explosions in Kabul that resulted in the deaths of 13 U.S. service members and the decision to remove U.S. personnel from Bagram Airbase.

“People are upset because their senior leaders let them down, and none of them are raising their hands and accepting accountability or saying, ‘We messed this up,’” Scheller said in the video. “I’m not saying we’ve got to be in Afghanistan forever, but I am saying: Did any of you throw your rank on the table and say, ‘Hey, it’s a bad idea to evacuate Bagram Airfield, a strategic airbase, before we evacuate everyone’? Did anyone do that? And when you didn’t think to do that, did anyone raise their hands and say, ‘We completely messed this up’?”

“Potentially all those people did die in vain if we don’t have senior leaders that own up and raise their hand and say, ‘We did not do this well, in the end,’” he continued. “Without that, we just keep repeating the same mistakes. I have been fighting for 17 years. I am willing to throw it all away to say to my senior leaders: I demand accountability.”

Despite constitutional provisions guaranteeing freedom of speech, under new guidance, military personnel aren’t able to criticize the Afghanistan withdrawal.

The irony and double standard illustrated in this story borderlines on comedic until we realize that Scheller may be jailed for his criticism. Where is the accountability for Joe Biden, who bears culpability for the disastrous exit from Afghanistan, the hundreds of deaths of Americans and Afghans alike, the handing over of billions of dollars worth of military equipment to terrorists, and all the other disastrous policy he has supported?

Apparently, there is no accountability if you’re Joe Biden.

  • Biden does TREASON !!! Calls himself POTUS-Buck stops here!
    Time to Military Court-martial TalibanJoeBiden for TREASON x-4.

  • Absolutely shameful! The chief of staffs as well as Joe Biden and Harris should ALL be court martialed for Treason, NOT this lowly Lt. Col. for simply asking for accountabilty, which we ALL as citizens of this country desire and DEMAND!!!

  • He is right to to call the bastards out! They are assholes! This old Navy Chief backs him! How about the rest of you?

    • I TOTALLY AGREE with you! Lt. Colonel Scheller has done the RIGHT thing in calling this out. He SHOULD NOT face prison time for demanding the TRUTH and ACCOUNTABILITY from those in charge. Nor should he have been fired over it!
      This crock of bull, ILLEGAL so called President has committed TREASON. He and his accomplices need to stand trial for this.

      • These so called leaders need to be tried for treason and sent to GITMO so they can visit the rest of their friends. Then put this brave Marine in charge of watching over them so they cannot hurt OUR AMERICA again. Amen?

    • “The Bastards”, as you call them, are the ones who need to be in prison. Since when has freely saying what you believe to be true an offense that merits prison. and other bad things that would happen to a military man or woman when they speak truth to the lies we have been fed.

      When this man signed in to be in the military he did not leave his his rights behind, especially when he speaks the truth to the lies of the Democrat party. Our country has become not only the laughing stock of the world, BUT it has also become a target for people who hate this country.

      Believe that there WiIL be Taliban attacks on the people of this country, and it is because Democrats decided to put a man with no real reasoning ability into office of president. Because of what some Democrats decided, this man has put many Americans into peril at the hands of the Taliban. If you think there will not be another 9/11 you are dreaming. The Taliban knows full well the soft underside of the belly of our country, and they will gleefully take advantage of that fact.

    • Semper Fi brother! If this current take over of the military by these leftists don’t wake up (woked) some of the troops in the ranks I don’t think there will be much hope to save the Republic! Anchors aweigh!!

  • Ridiculous! Would have some respect for Biden if he admitted his failures and stepped down. Now I wish he’d do us a favor and step down along with fellow Stupids Kamala, Nancy and Schumer to name just a few.


  • He will be allowed to leave but without a pension. Why? Because in any court martial, they would have to parse his exact words and examine the meaning of them, and those words are exactly what they don’t want to talk about.

    Unfortunately for him, they COULD use art 15 of the UCMJ, which is an administrative, not judicial proceeding, and a commanding officer has wide latitude concerning punishments there, and that is closed to the public.

    No matter – he will be a Congressman soon…sooner the more the USMC makes him a martyr. We like martyrs. Makes them electable, especially if they are well spoken and courageous like this one.

    • You might be right, but unfortumately there are other possibilities, like locking him up indefinitely awaiting trial or other form of judicual proceeding and stall off any action. It is a long time until Jan 25. The 6 Jan people have been locked up for 9 months mainly for getting entrapped. One should never underestimate the viciousness of power mad leftists to harm people that olppose them or people that just get in their way.

      • When someone in the military is in trouble for telling the truth you know that this country is now being run by bastards that should be locked up instead of getting paid to ruin OUR country.

        Too many people have been tippy-toeing around our pretend president. It is time to tell the truth and quit saying that Biden is our president. He isn’t, and just because he was sworn into the office of the president of the United States Lower case letters on one word was deliberate to show disdain for the puppet, and even more disdain for those who continue to pretend that Joe Biden is our president. while they are making terrible decisions, some that have already seen too many people die because of the decisions.

        This country is now the laughing stock of the world, and worse is falling into the hands of people who hate our freedom.

        Our military men and women should have the same freedom to tell the truth, as long as it IS the truth, as every other man and woman in this country. NO ONE is perfect, and telling the truth to imperfection should be the trademark of this country. But some people seem to think that if they lie often enough many Americans will not see the lie. Only a fool would believe that a lie is not a lie, and unfortunately too many people believe that Biden is our president.

        In actuality, the real truth is that Trump did a far better job of running this country. But because some people hate, and some downright stole enough of our election, we are stuck with a “president” that doesn’t know what he is doing. We are watching this country crumble, and we have to stand and watch it happen because some Democrats got their way by stealing our election, and not one judge had the guts to say that our election was stolen, then turn it over to the rightful winner.

        I was a NEVER TRUMP, until I saw the good things he was doing for the PEOPLE of this country and not those who are doing a bad job of running this country.

  • Then you better but the rest of us in jail to cause we all think Biden is a ads hole and a idiot . He had no right go hold the seat on the government . not in his crazy wzy of thinking

    • If Marine Lt. Col .Stuart Scheller is court martialed and stripped of his rank, We The People should stand up together and demand he be released. Since when is telling the truth a court marshal offence. That is a good way to get people to not want to go into the military. There are enough ups and downs of military life that it is a wonder that anyone wants to be in our military.

      Add in that no one is doing one thing about people letting a man, who some call their president, stay in office when it is obvious to EVERYONE who has not closed their eyes and minds that he has all but torn this country apart, and we are just a little over six months of his being in office. Very soon people will be hurting because of inflation and other bad things that “they” are doing that will hurt people, and there will be no President Trump to change the direction of this country. Biden has already caused more harm than good, and it is only going to get worse. He, and the rest of the Democrats, are on a spending spree that the people will not have the money to pay for.

  • Well i cant say i didn’t see this coming . This is how they silence others By Court-Martialing who ever speaks up first . What the LT Col said was true but in their mind it being true is irrelevant .

  • So, ummm, what did the military do to that lesbian Staff Sargent who went on the web with a video saying she would SHOOT US citizens when ordered to do so?

    The military did NOTHING. Murder US citizens exercising their RIGHT to protest?

    CRT training. White supremacy and racism training. Equipping and training for combat against US Citizens. Building FEMA camps that are designed to keep people IN, not out. Firing truly patriotic military brass. Gently stroking lesbos who want to KILL citizens.

    Our federal security agencies and the military are now aimed at US!! Well, we warned you, repeatedly, for the past 40 years!!

    By the way, the military swears an oath to obey all LAWFUL orders. Not just ANY orders!! There’s a HUGE difference and in the past at least classes were given to help the troops know which was which. That lesson was rammed home at a place called My Lai, Vietnam, in 1968.

  • I support our military….not the brass at the top who have thrown in with CommDems. Biden is not legally the Pres. Wish a mil coup would happen!

  • To throw this Lt Colonel in jail for asking for accountability is the height of dictatorship, communism , marxists , etc . Regardless of whether this does or does not happen, Biden needs to be impeached ! He is ruining this country with bad military decisions putting our country in jeopardy with the open border, causing inflation, high crimes in many cities, and lying to us about Afghanistan that caused the death of 13 brave military heroes and who knows how many more will die from his bad decisions ? We need to impeach Biden & his staff and vote the rest of these Democrats out of office and the sooner the better before they really ruin our country which is getting bad already!!!

  • This is so won’t. A soldier telling the truth versus a sick man in power that doesn’t tell the truth. We all need to stand up to the wrong.

  • Overthrow the treasonous command structure before you are killed. Patriots in the command structure know who they are. 72 year grandmothers do not.

  • I am making a good salary from home $6580-$7065/week , which is amazing under a year ago I was jobless in a horrible economy. I thank God every day I was blessed with these instructions and now it’s my duty to pay it forward and share it with Everyone,
    Here is I started.…………>

  • How can he be put in prison when they have already fired him? BTW, criticizing the Commander-in-Chief and the Command Staff is not a crime.

  • Standing up for the Constitution is now Punishable by Jail Time? How insane has this nation become? Don’t answer that as I know the answer!
    When I took the OATH to Protect and Defend it had a loophole that stated LAWFUL orders are to be obeyed. Calling out Cowardice and Incompetence is Doing your Duty!
    The problem is Obama did a magnificent job of depleting the Ranks of Patriots and rewarded the ass kissers!

  • not a smart move on the obiden admins part it won’t take much more to cause we the people to go to d.c. in force and hang the whole dammed bunch.

  • This Lieutenant Colonel has more common sense than Biden ever had..
    Biden and his Administration are destroying Our Country and the Military must take over Our Country and put the Democrat’s as well as Biden Administration before a Tribunal and charge all of them with Treason along with Obama ..
    They should all be shot before a firing squad which there would be many Volunteers to carry out that action.

  • Biden’s not our president, so who cares. He really needs to be tried for treason for aiding and arming our enemies and deserting our citizens to the terrorists. He has encouraged and sided the invasion of our country by illegals, traffickers and murdered gang memberss, and has allowed our enemies to send terrorists in with those who side us in Afghanistan. He is causing rampant inflation and rising cri m e. He is wodking to destroy our country for the CCP takeover. And vaccine mandates are unconstitutional and illegal under the Nuremberg treaty. He has become a dictator.

  • Can’t wait til the Durham & AZ Audit reports drop….perhaps Devolution will come to fruition soon so this nightmare can end.

  • I would recommend the court martial of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman prior to making the decision to court martial Lt. Colonel Scheller!!! Lt. Col. Vindman has testified against his Commander and Chief and later admitted that it was a lie (without prosecution) but Lt. Scheller just called for his superiors be accountable for their actions… he was fired from his position and forced to resign his commission! He was close to his retirement and gave it all up because he felt he had an obligation to call out his superiors for what they did. He should have been commended for what he did and I as a veteran fully support his actions! The actions the Marine Corps took against Lt. Scheller were mostly because of political pressure…

    • The lack of punishment of Vindman was totally WRONG !
      He should have been stripped of rank and had a swift Court Martial proceeding arraigned ! He came out and admitted he LIED about President Trump ! Vindman is GUILTY !

      Lt. Col. Scheller TOLD the TRUTH about his superiors and their lack of accounting for their actions ! Lt.Col. Scheller is NOT GUILTY of anything !

      • Our military leaders are too busy indotrinating “woke” to be bothered with justice and honor. In fact they’re too busy to bother putting together a logical exit plan from Afghanistan.

  • Biden is a useless pile of EXCREMENT !
    He needs to be Arrested, Tried in a Military Court for TREASON, and EXECUTED !
    I do not care if he is hanged or shot by a firing squad …just get rid of him permanently !
    Any Democrat or RINO that complains do the same to them !
