    WASHINGTON — The Defense Department on Wednesday acknowledged for the first time "multiple ground operations" in Yemen, while noting that the Islamic State has doubled in size in the war-torn country, where an insurgency by Houthis rebels has allowed terrorist groups to seek haven. "U.S. forces have conducted multiple ground operations and more than 120 strikes in 2017," said a statement from the U. S. Central Command in Tampa, Florida. The goal is to "disrupt the ability of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and ISIS-Yemen to use ungoverned spaces in Yemen as a hub for terrorist recruiting, training and...

            GIVING There is a story of two young men who were working their way through Stanford University. The day came when they were broke, and something had to be done. One of them had an idea. They would engage the great Paderewski for a piano recital and put their profits toward their board and tuition. All they had to do was guarantee two thousand dollars. The recital was held but only sixteen hundred dollars was raised. Following the performance, the two young men went to Paderewski, offered him the $1600 and added a promissory note...

    First Lady Melania Trump glowed in a vibrant pop-of-color for her visit with children of military families at a “Toys for Tots” event at the Joint Base Acostia-Bolling in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday. Melania chose an emerald green, wool Prada coat for her visit with the military kids, pairing the vivid top with khaki-toned J Brand jeans and matching nearly-knee-high leather boots. The Prada coat is made in Italy and features six oversized buttons and a giant, waist-cinching belt buckle, a favorite silhouette of Melania’s.
  • This ‘decorated Green Beret’ is a total fraud

    NY Post ^ | Dec 14, 2017 | Stephanie Pagones and Danika Fears
    Brooklyn Army vet Papotia Reginald Wright’s resume was impressive by any standard. He boasted of a Purple Heart, Bronze Star — and a slew of other medals as an elite Green Beret that got him into swanky galas and even field access to the Giants. But Wright is nothing but an accomplished fraud, it was revealed Thursday. He never served with Special Forces, never served in any combat role — and never rose above the rank of “specialist,” according to military documents obtained through FOIA by Guardians of the Green Beret. Wright even lied about how long he was in...

  • This is the the US Army’s newest pistol

    NY Post ^ | Dec 14, 2017 | Allison Barrie
    In future battles, U.S. soldiers will have a new sidearm for personal protection. The Army’s new pistol may see more action than the last thanks to a design that has great potential for offensive purposes like close quarter combat. The Army has begun fielding the first Sig Sauer XM17 Modular Handgun System (MHS) sidearms. The Sig Sauer 9mm XM17, and the more compact version XM18, are replacing the M9 as the Army’s service pistol. This is the first change in about three decades since Beretta’s M9 was first introduced as the Army’s sidearm in the Cold War era back in...
  • Senator Kristen Gillibrand – A Legend in her own Mind

    US Defense Watch ^ | December 13, 2017 | Ray Starmann
    Senator Kristen Gillibrand is a menace; to Congress, to the US military, to the nation she serves. She is an ardent leftist and uber-feminist whose ego is writing checks reality can’t cash. She has apparently coronated herself Number One in a SPECTRE like female led congressional kangaroo court that now decides who can stay in Congress and who cannot, based only on accusations. I do not like Senator Al Franken. I do not like his politics, his personality or his comedy. It would be a cold day in hell before I ever voted for him, or any member of his...

  • Amid NYC Terror Coverage MSNBC Panel Complains About Guns in America, Trump

    Newsbusters.org ^ | December 11, 2017 | Nicholas Fondacaro
    As information was still coming in regarding Monday’s attempted terror attack in the New York City subway, an MSNBC panel discussing the news ridiculously shifted the topic to outrage over guns and gun crime in the U.S. And on top of that, they bemoaned how President Trump would try to make the attack an immigration issue to support his temporary travel ban.The person responsible for kicking off the gun discussion was former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton. After commenting on how few terror attacks have hit the U.S. since 9/11 (missing a few as he rattled them off), he opined: We will continue to...

    Slaughterbots: a weapon of the future This fictional video was created as a warning about what may be real in the near future: tiny little drones with artificial intelligence, facial recognition, and enough explosive to destroy a person’s head. One drone can kill one specific person. A big group of drones can kill a large number of specific people, or an entire city for that matter.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CO6M2HsoIA

            THE REAL MEANING OF PEACE There once was a King who offered a prize to the artist who would paint the best picture of peace. Many artists tried. The King looked at all the pictures, but there were only two he really liked and he had to choose between them. One picture was of a calm lake. The lake was a perfect mirror for the peaceful towering mountains all around. Overhead was a blue sky with fluffy white clouds. All who saw this picture thought that it was a perfect picture of peace. The other...
  • VIDEO: CBS' Army-Navy Introduction is Beautiful

    The Big Lead ^ | 12/09/17
    The Army-Navy game is special, unlike any other. As such, it requires a different introduction than say, Arkansas-Missouri. And I am thrilled to report that CBS Sports was up to the task. Here’s the introduction they’ll show before kickoff this afternoon. It’s powerful without overstepping the line of self-importance. Most impressively, it puts the actual game in proper context.
