Blaine Campbell, Green Beret. ‘Not So Fast’ say the Guardians of the Green Beret

| June 13, 2021

The Guardians of the Green Beret partnered with the Second Amendment Foundation for a case involving this Blaine Campbell fella.  Blaine was formerly known as Blaine Hardwick, and according to the post, he falsely claimed to be a “Special Forces Weapons Sergeant” and “Green Beret.”

The article broke here at The Gun Writer.

There were extensive investigative efforts put into this to obtain documentation, interview people and get Campbell’s perspective.

Campbell did attempt the Special Forces Qualification Course, but for was dropped from the course.

Here are some of his claims in his own words.

There is a plethora of information related to this case that we’d encourage you to read.

    Embellishing POS! Had an Honorable (?) record of Service and just had to take a big ol’ steaming dump all over. Compassionate Discharge? What was it, he got butt hurt when he couldn’t make the cut?

    Transfer his azz to the HANO Command. Make him lead jumper and he can show us how it’s done.

    Leading an already entirely ‘gifted’ life, Campbell then decides – possibly in some sudden fit of altered dementia or outright break with reality – to needlessly aggrandize his career accomplishments. Beg’s the basic question – why? A real-deal-Green-Beret just plain wouldn’t do that. Wouldn’t need to… According to the ‘update’, he’s ‘fessed up – according to GoTGB ‘only inasmuch’ and will only issue a ‘private apology’. Nope. The only rope-of-hope(versus a noose) is full-on disclosure combined with a full-on public apology. To quote Don Shipley, snarling at one of his Fake-Navy-SEAL targets – “Time to grow a pair, Dude”!

    Does he have some flunky in a senior executive position in the company willing to go on line and denigrate the service of military veterans? Every company needs to keep a few of those losers on the payroll, you never know when you’ll need one. Just ask Phil Monkress.

      Great comment, Funny I had plenty of interaction with the self proclaimed SEAL Phil Monkress POS. People seem to think it’s not a small world in certain elite parts of military and units.


    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Will he make a show of this and make a Bernath of himself? Time will tell.

      • Tallywhagger says:

        I am not hearing Bernathian levels of depravity coming from the guy.

        Charles Manson wasn’t as bizarre as Bernath… well, that probably depends on specifics more than generalities 🙂

        Blaine somebody needs to start fessin up, without explanations or rationalizations, to what the facts are.

        Bernath ran out of gas, Blaine needs to run out of bullshit and start respecting the folks who have taken him to task. I’m not so sure that he’s up to the burden.

        • A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

          By “being a Bernath” I was referring to the act of lawering up to go after those asking questions and exposing Stolen Valor.

          • Tallywhagger says:

            Oh yes! I forgot about his lawering up by comparison with his brutal ignorance and arrogance.

            I was surprised that Bernath was able to even find a lawer while he was in the Norfolk jail. Hope that guy worked from retainer.

  7. MSGRetired says:

    The 1059 tells the entire story.

  8. Daisy Cutter says:

    He tells Don Shipley he did “almost 300 jumps” but later says he had over 350 jumps.

    Him speak with mouth full of buffalo patty.

    To the fake green beret mentioned above:

    I cannot believe how incredibly stupid you are. I mean rock-hard stupid. Dehydrated-rock-hard stupid. Stupid so stupid that it goes way beyond the stupid we know into a whole different dimension of stupid. You are trans-stupid stupid. Meta-stupid. Stupid collapsed on itself so far that even the neutrons have collapsed. Stupid gotten so dense that no intellect can escape. Singularity stupid. Blazing hot mid-day sun on Mercury stupid. You emit more stupid in one second than our entire galaxy emits in a year. Quasar stupid. Your writing has to be a troll. Nothing in our universe can really be this stupid. Perhaps this is some primordial fragment from the original big bang of stupid. Some pure essence of a stupid so uncontaminated by anything else as to be beyond the laws of physics that we know. I’m sorry. I can’t go on. This is an epiphany of stupid for me. After this, you may not hear from me again for a while. I don’t have enough strength left to deride your ignorant questions and half baked comments about unimportant trivia, or any of the rest of this drivel. Duh.

    Now that I’m on phony updates…

    JUNE 9 – Elko Daily Free Press story
    [Celebration of life slated for Les Brown]
    [A full motorcade is forming at 9 a.m. MST June 12
    in Filer, Idaho, with a sheriff’s escort all the way to Elko.
    The motorcade will bring Brown’s ashes home, according to friend Debi Hampton.]

    New photos. New details. And this…
    [“He was an Army master sergeant,” Adams said.
    “He just had a grump attitude.”
    Brown spent 20 years in the Army.
    He retired from service in 1998.]

    Again with MSGT, 20 years, and retired?
    The LIES and FALSE CLAIMS continue!

    The Elko POW*MIA Awareness Ass.
    and their NEW leader Ken Adams,
    and perhaps this “celebration of life”
    need some new attention.
    We missed the event.
    I haven’t even begun checking the links and pages
    for the usual suspects,
    and their posts, photos, and clicks.


    • MarineDad61 says:

      Yep… You see it.
      (Email now sent to admins.)

      KEN ADAMS just pulled a TOM WULF.

      As the NEW leader of the Elko POW*MIA Awareness Ass.,
      the 1st thing Ken Adams did was
      LIE his ass off about the military service of Les Brown.

    • MarineDad61 says:

      For all of you with FakeBook…
      Ceremony VIDEO.
      It begins with “Master Sergeant Les Brown”,
      in the 1st 10 seconds.
      7:43 total.

    • MarineDad61 says:

      I must say this now.
      I’d like to believe the whole POW*MIA organization and effort
      is a worthwhile cause and purpose,
      for many veterans around the USA.

      1st with LES BROWN in 2019,
      then with TOM WOLF and LAURA ADAMS,
      and now with KEN ADAMS in 2021….

      The lies, shenanigans, false claims, the tricking and conning of others,
      and then the phony denying, phony defending,
      and (worse) the counterattacking of local veterans in Elko, Nevada
      as well as various websites and national media sources of truth….

      The Elko POW*MIA Awareness Ass.
      makes ALL these June 12 ceremony volunteers
      from several POW*MIA chapters
      look like FOOLS,
      for being conned, misled, and now paraded around like idiots…
      all to hail the glorious but eternally lying and phony Les Brown.

      Shame on the ENTIRE Elko POW*MIA Awareness Ass.,
      and anyone and everyone around them
      who chose to believe the LIES and push the SUCK,
      rather than admit to being fooled by Les Brown and the Elko org,
      and who refused to relegate Les, Ron,
      and other Elko phonies to their true place in history.

  13. Keepin' It Real says:

    I’ll go out on a limb here and address the elephant in the room…

    … is the Annual Elko POW*MIA Awareness Chili Feed still happenin’?

    Rumor has it that Les Brown’s gay lovers are gonna sprinkle his ashes on their chili so he can tear dat A$$ up one more time.
