Lt. Commander Timothy White with his family
Updates have been moved to the end of the article. However, the most recent update can be found on this link.
This administration is about to perform yet another sick farce and the American public are expected to sit by and watch like drugged zombies. At least it appears to be the case according to information provided by Lt. Col. Allen West who said he has received confirmation.
This administration is possibly going to prosecute the Naval officer who shot at the crazed terrorist in Chattanooga to save himself and his men. I have to wonder if people will care about this brave man as much as they care about Cecil the lion.
On July 16th, a deranged Muslim terrorist shot up two Naval reserve centers, killing five Marines and a sailor at the second location. A courageous Lt. Commander Timothy White, head of the Naval Support Reserve Center in Chattanooga, discharged a personal side arm while standing up to the terrorist. He didn’t run. He defended his post.
The Commander is married and his wife is about to give birth to their seventh child.
He is about to be formally charged by the Navy, according to sources speaking confidentially to Allen West, for “illegally discharging a firearm on federal property”. If you will remember, this was a gun free zone but the terrorist didn’t read the sign on the door it seems.
The Commander returned fire along with one other Marine, probably one of those murdered. The Commander didn’t start the shooting. He probably saved lives.
Will the Navy charge the deceased Marine posthumously also?
Why aren’t the other military standing up for the Lt. Commander? Where are our Naval leaders?
We have a deserter – Bowe Bergdahl – running around pot houses, who we traded five dangerous terrorists for, but it’s the Lt. Commander who is to be court martialed?
The Commander has served loyally for thirteen years and all that could be lost with a court martial.
These people are so anti-gun, they are driven.

Lt. Col. West wrote about the situation.
“There are things which make you just upset, like the liberal progressive left and media accomplices’ rage over the shooting of a lion in Africa but abject disregard and disdain reference Planned Parenthood dismembering babies and selling their body parts. But this story has me dog fighting mad and seriously p***** off.”
He added, “What kind of freaking idiots are in charge of our Armed Forces — pardon me, our ‘unArmed Forces’? What would they prefer that (the killer) Abdulazeez had been able to kill all the Marines and Sailors at the Naval Support Reserve Center? Let me draw an interesting contrast: Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus is more concerned about lifting the ban on transgendered Sailors.
“Mabus has a problem in that for the first time since 2007 the US Navy will not have a Carrier Battle Group operating in the Persian Gulf. But this knucklehead has no problem with the Navy seeking to destroy the career of a Sailor, a commander of an installation, returning fire against an Islamic jihadist attack. I do not care if it was his personal weapon, he deserves a medal for facing the enemy.”
Read the article Lt. Col. West has posted on this link.
I must be in an alternative universe.
A petition with over 7,000 signatures on “We the People” is currently on a White House site asking to honor Lt. Commander White and a yet-unidentified Marine who returned fire with their “illegal” firearms. You can sign the petition here.
A misdemeanor can’t be overlooked for self-defense and for protecting others?
It’s tragic and pathetic. People need to show outrage over this destructive nonsense.
Former Congressman West said people need to take action. “Flood the phones of SecNav Ray Mabus and SecDef Carter and ask them whose side they’re on. Demand the charges being brought against LTC White be immediately dropped. If those charges are not dropped, (Allen West) will personally lead the charge to have Carter and Mabus removed from their positions.
Ashton Carter is the Secretary of Defense for the United States. Marine Gen. Martin Dempsey is the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Ray Mabus is the Secretary of the U.S. Navy – his email is firstname.lastname@example.org. All three work at the Pentagon where the mailing address is: 1400 Defense Pentagon, Washington, DC 20301-1400. The main switchboard number is 703 571-3343.

UPDATE: 08/02/15: 19:30 EST: The U.S. Navy denies that any charges will be filed against Lt. Commander White according to the Chattanoogan. Navy Jag is required to investigate, it said further. I cannot confirm this statement by the Chattanoogan.
A spokesman for the U.S. Navy on Sunday allegedly denied reports that disciplinary charges will be filed against Lt. Cmdr. Timothy White for discharging an unauthorized weapon on federal property.
According to the Chattanoogan, a statement from the Navy reads, “Stories of Navy personnel bringing charges with an offense are not true. There is still a long way to go in reviewing the facts of this tragic incident, but at this time we can confirm no service member has been charged with an offense.”
I cannot find this Navy post yet but will post it here if it turns out to be accurate.
This website and others posted this article based on Lt. Col. West confirming that LTC White would be charged and he has excellent sources.
Even if the update is correct, it’s not clear if they will charge him in the future. It’s very possible the firestorm caused them to back off. People might still consider calling so they get the message in case they are thinking of charging him. We are waiting for a response from Lt. Col. West and will post that here.
This is the latest update I promised as of 20:30 EST.
The comment was a response by a moderator on the US Navy Facebook page. It still doesn’t say that he won’t be charged. When I get a response from the Secretary of the Navy or if Lt. Col. West responds, I will post it here.
Allen West’s comments were confirmed by Jim Webb who checked with a DOD official.
Jim Webb, former military and Democratic candidate for president, also received confirmation that the Defense Department is considering charging this man.
Before tweeting last night, we confirmed with a defense official that the Navy was seriously considering charging LCDR Timothy White.
