    Trans and LGBTQIAP activists will tell you that you have no right to question their ideology or actions. They are the keepers of the new and unassailable religion. Their religion is called Queer Theory and it’s adherents are radical misogynistic zealots that have created their own queer caliphate. Their god is perversity, transgender “women” are their high priestesses, and drag queens are their temple dancers. At their unholy altar of misogyny they sacrifice the dignity of women and sexualize children in their pedophilic fantasies. American women need to wake up and realize that Queer-Marxists are doing everything they can to...

    The Moscow city administration had refused to allow representatives of the LGBT community to hold a gay pride parade on May 25 and three rallies on May 25, 26, and 27, LGBT activist Nikolai Alexeev told Interfax. The estimated number of would-be participants in the procession is 300. “The Moscow authorities just forbade the holding of a Moscow gay parade for the 14th year in a row, and also three LGBT meetings, including with a call for the execution of the decree of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in the case of ‘Alexeev and others vs. Russia’ on...

    The U.S. Army has not and will not approve enlistment waivers for individuals with a history of self-mutilation or other documented serious mental health conditions, the Army’s top general said Wednesday. Gen. Mark Milley, the Army’s chief of staff, said recruitment standards have not been adjusted to meet hefty accession goals as the service looks to grow its force for the second consecutive year, calling a USA Today report that indicated the service would accept some individuals with past mental health issues “mischaracterized.” The report cited internal Army documents and listed conditions including self-mutilation, bipolar disorder, depression or drug or...

    Unfortunately, contrary to the public statements made by DOD and the NFL, the majority of the contracts—72 of the 122 contracts we analyzed—clearly show that DOD paid for patriotic tributes at professional football, baseball, basketball, hockey, and soccer games. These paid tributes included on-field color guard, enlistment and reenlistment ceremonies, performances of the national anthem, full-field flag details, ceremonial first pitches and puck drops. The National Guard paid teams for the “opportunity” to sponsor military appreciation nights and to recognize its birthday. It paid the Buffalo Bills to sponsor its Salute to the Service game. DOD even paid teams for...

    Some 25 colleges and universities – many of them public – have answered a call by professors at UCLA to use their regular class time to “teach, organize, and resist” what they view as the discriminatory political agenda of President-elect Donald Trump. Slated for Wednesday, January 18, the teach-in, dubbed #J18, is taking place between the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday and Trump’s inauguration. The event’s planners say: Let it be known that on #J18 and beyond, universities, colleges, and high schools refused to bear silent witness to the politics of hate and fear; that in these times, these places...

    KABUL: An official says gunmen have kidnapped 11 land mine clearers in western Afghanistan. Rauf Ahmadi, the spokesman for the police chief of the western Herat province, said on Saturday that a military operation has been launched in the area, with six suspects detained. He says tribal elders had earlier tried negotiating the de-miners’ release. He says all 11 were Afghans employed by the HALO Trust mine clearing organisation. They were abducted on Friday. Abduction for ransom is widespread in lawless Afghanistan, and de-miners are soft targets as they usually work in remote regions. After almost 40 years of war,...

    Hillary Clinton has got a lot of 'splainin to do.  And just wait until Donald Trump takes a look at the ISIS recruiting video below that zooms in on a picture of her husband as it denounces “fornicators” among the American infidels. I urge readers to view this 4-minute-plus English-language video in its entirety.  It is stunningly well done, and it helps explain how ISIS is able to appeal to Muslims living in the West, often upset at their place in society, and looking for a way to assert their righteousness and strength.

    Anjem Choudary, Britain’s most notorious radical Muslim preacher, has been formally charged with enlisting British citizens to support ISIS. Choudary, along with one of his top protégés, stands accused of “inviting support” for the vicious Islamist terror group between 29 June 2014 and 6 March 2015, according to British media reports. The Islamist leader is a high-profile sympathizer of the so-called “Islamic State” group, and has previously founded and headed a number of extremist Muslim groups which were subsequently banned as terrorist organizations by the British government. But Choudary—a 48-year-old former British law student—has proven adept at circumventing UK anti-terror...

    Carter, in a speech at his former high school, said the military has to attract about 250,000 people a year just to keep up with those who retire or leave the service to pursue jobs, education and other opportunities in the civilian world. At the same time, only about a third of the 21 million Americans age 17 to 21 are eligible to join the military, with half unable to pass the entry examination and the rest ineligible because they are unable to meet the physical fitness or character standards, he said.

    WASHINGTON — The Army is conducting an investigation into large-scale fraud tied to an Army recruitment program, Sen. Claire McCaskill, the head of the Senate Subcommittee on Financial and Contracting Oversight, disclosed Monday, a day before she held a hearing on the scandal.

David Quantock, the Commanding General of U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command, told lawmakers at the hearing Tuesday. The Recruiting Assistance Program began in 2005 at...
