    CHANGCHUN, China — The Chinese Army relieved a decorated army officer and son of legendary Gen. Li of his command position after details were leaked that the promising young officer had “fostered a command climate of toxic masculinity,” sources confirmed today. While training recruits for war against the invading Hun Army, Capt. Shang reportedly abused his primarily male recruits, asking if their families had sent daughters when he’d asked for sons. Several of Li’s troops have come forward with allegations against him, and many more anonymous complaints have been received by Imperial Headquarters. Li screamed at his troops to “be...

            OUR COVENANT WITH GOD Abram accepted the covenant God offered him, "I Am God Almighty; walk before me and be blameless. I will confirm my covenant between me and you and will greatly increase your numbers." Abram fell face-down, and God said to him, "As for me, this is my covenant with you: you will be the father of many nations. No longer will you be called Abram: your name will be Abraham, for I have made you a father of many nations." (Genesis 17:1-5). Like Abraham, we also have a covenant with God; we...

    I can’t believe we had to wait almost 24 hours for her to reply to yesterday’s White House letter. We live in the Netflix era. We should be able to binge-watch every episode of this pitiful melodrama in a day. “After President Trump revoked the use of military aircraft to travel to Afghanistan, the delegation was prepared to fly commercially to proceed with this vital trip to meet with our commanders and troops on the front lines,” [Pelosi spokesman Drew] Hammill said.Overnight, he added, a new State Department threat assessment indicated “that the President announcing this sensitive travel had...
  • Nancy Pelosi's Previous Taxpayer Funded Trips Were Pretty Fancy

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrats are pretty enraged President Trump cancelled their taxpayer funded trip overseas -- in the middle of a government shutdown -- at the last minute on Thursday.

    Sir Winston Churchill: “Lee was the noblest American who had ever lived and one of the greatest commanders known to the annals of war.” During a tour through the South in 1905, President Theodore Roosevelt told the aged Confederate veterans in Richmond, Virginia, “Here I greet you in the shadow of the statue of your commander, General Robert E. Lee. You and he left us memories which are part of the memories bequeathed to the entire nation by all the Americans who fought in the War Between the States.” Saturday January 19, 2019, is the 212th birthday of Robert E....

    President Donald Trump recognizes a primary function of the federal government involves protecting us from external threats. Our state governments protect us from internal threats, but only the federal government can deal with threats coming from other countries. He recognizes that Mexico and other Latin American countries like Guatemala have significant crime problems. Dingbat Democrats are oblivious to the difficulty the Mexican government is having with the drug cartels that operate from there. The government has had to use the Mexican army in its war with the cartels. Many of those coming to the United States want to get away...

  • Pentagon crafting plan to scrutinize potential military recruits with foreign ties, green cards

    The Pentagon is crafting a plan to scrutinize potential military recruits with green cards or other foreign ties, The Washington Post reported, citing internal memos. The process likely would include screening recruits whom the Pentagon deems "foreign nexus" risks, according to the Post. That would include Americans who have spouses from other countries and Americans who have family members with dual citizenship. The memos reviewed by the Post reportedly cited "counterintelligence or terrorism risks" as the Pentagon's reasoning behind the new vetting system. “One primary concern associated with qualifying for these positions relates to the potential counterintelligence or terrorism risks....

    As an attorney experienced working with public policy litigation, here is a practical plan for how Trump can keep the legal dispute entirely within the Fifth Circuit and out of the Ninth Circuit. First, President Trump should get on Air Force One and fly to Texas to meet with Republicans opposed to illegal immigration Governor Greg Abbott, Senator Ted Cruz, and leaders of the Texas legislature. Second, Governor Abbott should formally request the Texas legislature to issue an application for the federal government to defend the Texas border with Mexico. Section 4, Article 4 of the United States Constitution commands...

  • A Woman Explains Why Women Shouldn’t Be In Combat Units, And She's Got A Point

    While this subject has largely fallen into the “settled” category for the most part, it’s still being brought up for discussion among the public. We’re once again talking about women in combat. Back during the Obama administration, Ash Carter was directed to open all combat roles to women. At the time, we were assured that female recruits would have to meet the same physical standards as their male counterparts. Slowly but sure, however, that principle was eroded.As Heather Mac Donald writes in the Wall Street Journal (subscription required), the standards did indeed change. But even with those relaxed standards,...

    The US military will be extending its security support mission at the southern border with Mexico through the end of September, according to officials. Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan authorized the extension on Monday after receiving a request from the Department of Homeland Security. The border deployment was first ordered back in October by President Trump and initially slated to end...

    Janitor's view ^ | 01/14/19 | Reasonmclucus
    President Trump can build a wall as a military training activity. In a combat area concrete walls may be needed as part of a bunker to protect personnel or supplies. A wall can protect buildings from a truck bomb on a nearby road. Thus military personnel need to know how to construct concrete walls The southwestern states provide a good location to train personnel to construct concrete walls in the Middle East because it has a relatively close match in terrain, climate and soil. Training benefits would include practice in moving personnel, equipment and supplies into an area and learning...
  • Would Declaring a “National Emergency” to Build Trump’s Border Wall Set A Dangerous Precedent?

    Big League Politics ^ | January 14, 2019 | Jonathon A Moseely
    Would a declaration of an emergency to build a border wall create a bad precedent? At the end of the last week, much of the political discussion here in Washington, D.C. in talk shows, statements from Congressmen and in conservative publications focused on warnings of how a future Democrat President might abuse a similar process to push left-wing policies. If Trump can declare an emergency to build the border wall, could a future Democrat President Chelsea Clinton declare an emergency and take people’s guns or force or enact legislation to fight the myth of man-made climate change. No, “that’s not...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | January 13, 2019 | Heather Mac Donald
    The Obama-era policy of integrating women into ground combat units is a misguided social experiment that threatens military readiness and wastes resources in the service of a political agenda. The next defense secretary should end it. In September 2015 the Marine Corps released a study comparing the performance of gender-integrated and male-only infantry units in simulated combat. The all-male teams greatly outperformed the integrated teams, whether on shooting, surmounting obstacles or evacuating casualties. Female Marines were injured at more than six times the rate of men during preliminary training—unsurprising, since men’s higher testosterone levels produce stronger bones and muscles. Even...
