    For the first time since combat operations were declared over at the end of 2014, a battalion of 500 U.S. Army infantrymen is being sent to southern Afghanistan's volatile Helmand Province where the Taliban have made a comeback, Fox News has learned. The decision, confirmed by defense officials, is a sign of military escalation in the country even as the Obama administration tries to draw down. The battalion is meant to relieve a company of 150 soldiers, giving the U.S. Army nearly 350 more soldiers to prevent the Taliban from taking over volatile Helmand province. The Army's 2-87 infantry battalion,...

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | February 10, 2016 | Morgan Chalfant
    Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) directed President Obama to "stop protecting China" in order to more effectively respond to hostile actions from North Korea. Cruz, a presidential candidate, penned the letter to Obama Wednesday to express concern with his policy of "strategic patience" toward North Korea. Earlier, the Texas senator announced that he would vote in favor of legislation that would impose nuclear weapons-related sanctions in North Korea, which is expected to gain passage in the Senate. Cruz outlined several means of more effectively responding to aggressive actions from North Korea, which over the weekend launched a long-range rocket and...

    The preeminent responsibility of the federal government is to provide for the common defense, to protect the American people and our interests. It appears that when you listen to certain individuals debating, they believe the primary role of the federal government is to provide free stuff. This reflects those who have confused providing for the common defense and promoting the general welfare. The former is an active verb, the latter a passive verb, but some have juxtaposed the meaning. The resulting new raison d'etre of the federal government is to provide the general welfare. Is there any wonder why we...

    The Pentagon is ordering the top brass to incorporate climate change into virtually everything they do, from testing weapons to training troops to war planning to joint exercises with allies. A new directive’s theme: The U.S. Armed Forces must show “resilience” and beat back the threat based on “actionable science.” It says the military will not be able to maintain effectiveness unless the directive is followed. It orders the establishment of a new layer of bureaucracy — a wide array of “climate change boards, councils and working groups” to infuse climate change into “programs, plans and policies.” The Pentagon defines...

Peterborough, N.H.- Ted Cruz came out against requiring 18-year-old women to register for the Selective Service and the possibility of being drafted into the military. At a campaign event here Sunday afternoon, Cruz responded to some of his rivals, like Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush, who said in Saturday's debate that women should have to register. "It was striking that three different people on that stage came out in support of drafting women into combat in the military," Cruz said. "I...

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Friday that he would support women in military combat roles, but would follow that advice from his military advisers "because I would want to hear that without a political bent." "The answer is yes because they're really into it," the billionaire businessman told Chris Cuomo on CNN. "And some of them are really, really good at it. "I would really speak to the generals, because I would want to hear that without a political bent," Trump cautioned.

    Sometimes a calamity is averted "by the skin of our teeth," and one just was. Last December, Congress returned to the American citizen a degree of long term security that, by some inexplicable twist, it had taken away in 2014. No, this is not about the awful Iran nuclear deal, which plainly opens up new vulnerabilities, or the stop-and-start mess surrounding Syria, Iraq and the Islamic State, so-called. This was a simpler, yet more immediate error - corrected, in the nick of time. In 2014, for reasons that remain enshrouded in mystery, possibly tied to longstanding personal antagonisms or personal...

    Imagine your seventeen-year-old daughter fighting for her life in hand-to-hand combat with battle-hardened enemy soldiers. How long would she survive? Two minutes? One minute? There is a resurgent movement to push female military personnel into ever more intimate contact with hostile forces. The few arguments mustered in support of doing this focus narrowly on manpower issues or misplaced feminist vanity. In all the literature on this subject that I have collected over several years, not once have I found a proponent of women in combat who would speak honestly about the consequences of thrusting our daughters into man-against-woman festivals of...

    The LORD said, "Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the LORD, for the LORD is about to pass by."

When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went...

    The senators' message to the officer tapped to lead the fight in Afghanistan on Thursday was clear: just tell us how many troops you need, and we'll make it happen. The Pentagon announced on Wednesday that Lt. Gen. John Nicholson would be nominated to take over as leader of U.S. and coalition troops in Afghanistan when Gen. John Campbell steps down. Less than a day later, Nicholson appeared before the Senate Armed Services Committee on Thursday. *********snip********* Sen.

    Speaking in Colorado at the recent Steamboat Institute Summit on Foreign Policy, columnist, author and scholar Victor Davis Hanson predicted a rough 12 months in which Barack Obama's appeasement habit versus Vladimir Putin's aggression may put the NATO alliance at risk. Noting how easily Putin grabbed Crimea, Hanson said, "If Putin goes into, say, Estonia, does anybody think Obama would say that's a red line and invoke Article 5 of the NATO charter? And if he didn't do anything wouldn't that mean the dissolution of NATO, which is what Putin wants?" Estonia is one of the former Soviet satellite Baltic...

    The U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) is providing Department of Defense (DOD) personnel with guidance for personal protective measures in response to the mosquito-borne Zika virus outbreak in its area of operation (AOR). Health officials have tied the Zika virus to a neurological disorder that makes pregnant women and their babies particularly vulnerable. The Zika-linked malady, known as microcephaly, is a rare birth defect in which babies are born with smaller heads than normal and often have developmental problems. "Pregnant DoD employees and beneficiaries in Zika affected areas will be offered voluntary relocation out of the affected areas," Army Col. Lisa...
