Quote III

Naval shakeup.

The US Navy has dismissed four commanding officers and a senior enlisted adviser in less than one week due to “loss of confidence,” a strikingly short timeframe for such disciplinary action.

On Tuesday, the Navy announced it was relieving Cmdr. Peter Lesaca — of the destroyer USS Preble — of his duties “due to loss of confidence in his ability to command.” — a vague statement used to describe anything from a personality clash to sexual harassment to a DUI arrest.

““The U.S. Navy has long maintained high standards for all its personnel and those who fall short are held accountable,” the service told The Post in a statement Wednesday afternoon. “Commanders and other triad members, in particular, are meticulously screened and selected for their proven technical abilities and demonstrated character traits that signal they are ready to assume the authority and responsibility that accompany those positions.

Child abuse is promoted and applauded.

COVID-19 shots for U.S. infants, toddlers and preschoolers moved a step closer Wednesday.

The Food and Drug Administration’s vaccine advisers gave a thumbs-up to vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer for the littlest kids.

The outside experts voted unanimously that the benefits of the shots outweigh any risks for children under 5 — that’s roughly 18 million youngsters. They are the last age group in the U.S. without access to COVID-19 vaccines and many parents have been anxious to protect their little children.

One would think that US prisons are better than Cuban prisons. Unless you are a Genius Award Winner.

A man was busted while apparently fleeing to Cuba on a jet ski with food and water to escape insurance fraud charges.

Ernesto Cruz Graveran, 54, of Hialeah, was arrested on a ‘broken down’ jet ski in the Florida Keys, according to the US Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of Florida on Tuesday.

‘The jet ski was outfitted with a special fuel cell to allow for long trips, and within the compartments of the jet ski, law enforcement discovered a trove of food and water bottles,’ stated the US Attorney’s office.

It was not clear how far Graveran made it in the 90-mile trip to Cuba before US Coast Guard members apprehended him.
