    The U.S. Defense Department is facing a lawsuit to turn over emails and documents about how the agency came to delete the phrase "Duty, Honor, Country" from the mission statement of the United States Military Academy at West Point. The conservative legal watchdog organization Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit against the Defense Department last week after the Military Academy failed to respond to its Freedom of Information Act request filed in March 2024. While the words "Duty, Honor, Country" remain the academy's motto, West Point Superintendent Lt. Gen. Steven Gilland said in March that following a year-and-a-half assessment, the mission...

    Boise, Idaho – Governor Brad Little commented today on the progress of negotiations to avoid a water curtailment order that could impact hundreds of eastern Idaho farmers. Two more groundwater districts became compliant on Thursday with an approved mitigation plan, giving them safe harbor from curtailment. The groundwater districts and surface water users remain engaged in finding a path forward for complying with the law, Constitution, and approved mitigation plans.

    The Department of Defense is being roasted online for accidentally posting a rainbow LGBTQ pride graphic to recognize PTSD Awareness Month in an embarrassing social media gaffe. The month of June has been designated as PTSD Awareness Month by the federal government since 2014, a year before it also became recognized as Pride Month, Fox News“June is PTSD Awareness Month and the DoD is committed to supporting service members and veterans affected by PTSD,” the department wrote on X. “If you or someone you know is struggling, help is available. “You are not alone,” the post’s caption said.Instead of posting...

    Department of Defense ^ | 2/20/24 | Department of Defense Inspector General
    As of January 2024, the DoD had not developed or implemented a plan for sustaining the Bradleys, Strykers, and Abrams provided to the UAF. The DoD provided supply packages containing consumables and spare parts, as well as personnel and facilities to conduct field‑level of maintenance through the end of FY 2024, consistent with the challenges of fiscal February 15, 2024 (U) authorities. However, DoD officials acknowledged that the existing efforts did not constitute a sustainment plan and had not yet identified the following sustainment efforts to facilitate Ukraine’s sustainment beyond the end of FY 2024:

    Gateway Pundit ^ | Feb. 22, 2024 12:40 pm | Staff
    CBS reportedly seized files from Catherine Herridge, the network’s recently laid-off senior investigative correspondent. This action included materials that may reveal information about confidential sources, according to an article by Jonathan Turley, Shapiro Chair of Public Interest Law at George Washington University, in The Hill. Catherine Herridge, an Emmy-winning and nominated reporter known for her work on national security and intelligence, was among the 800 employees Paramount Global laid off in a bid to streamline operations amid financial strain. Her firing has since escalated into a broader controversy. In his article titled “CBS faces uproar after seizing investigative journalist’s files,”...

    Son of the new American Revolution ^ | 15 January 2024 | Bob Bishop
    Lloyd Austin underwent an invasive surgical procedure called a prostatectomy for his prostate cancer. He was readmitted to the ICU ward of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center seven days later, on January 1st, due to complications caused by a severe infection. It appears he was septic. He concealed his inability to carry out his duties from Biden, Congress, the Pentagon, and his Deputy Secretary, Dr. Kathleen Hicks. On January 4th, finally becoming aware of Austin’s hospitalization, security adviser Jake Sullivan notified Hicks, who was on vacation in Puerto Rico. Even though Biden continued to back Austin, Austin was already...
  • DOD Holds Staff Event on ‘Rise of Far-Right Terrorism’ in U.S.

    01/31/2024 11:58:10 AM PST · by Sam77 · 27 replies ^ | 31 Janaury 2024 | Michael Taylor
    The three letter agencies of America have decided that so-called “far-right terrorism” is a much bigger problem than any other terrorist threats outside of American soil, with the Department of Defense holding staff event meeting event to discuss the issue. For context, the Defense Department defines terrorism as the “unlawful use of violence or threat of violence to instill fear and coerce governments and societies.” So, instead of worrying about the millions of unchecked illegal immigrants pouring across the Southern border, the U.S. government has focused on what they term “homegrown” terrorism. In other words, any American who supports ‘Making...

    American Thinker ^ | January 7, AD 2024 | John F. Di Leo
    There isn’t much left in this regime to shock the consumer of news. We have grown accustomed to the daily cavalcade of assaults on American freedoms in the Federal Register. Both the autocrat-in-chief and his press secretary have mainstreamed the practice of lying about virtually every issue. They attempt to take both sides of foreign policy issues within the same speech, claiming to be supporters of Israel while supporting Hamas, claiming to be opposed to the risk of nuclear war while encouraging Iranian nuclear advancement. What is left to shock us, in such an environment? Well, sometime Friday, January 5,...

    Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin is one of the most reclusive Pentagon chiefs in recent memory. That’s creating a major problem for him now. Austin’s failure to inform his most senior advisers, congressional leaders and even President Joe Biden of his hospitalization last week due to complications from a medical procedure has erupted into a controversy that’s left senior White House and Pentagon officials infuriated and befuddled. Some Republicans quickly called for investigations or even for Austin to be disciplined or fired. Advertisement Joint Chiefs Chair Gen. C.Q. Brown was not informed of Austin’s situation until Tuesday, the day after his...

    U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin has been hospitalized since the first day of 2024, and while Pentagon officials have not said when he will be released, they continue to avoid saying why he went to the hospital in the first place. Austin was admitted to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center last Monday, for what Pentagon press secretary Maj. Gen. Pat Ryder described as complications from an elective medical procedure. On Sunday, Ryder told Fox News that Austin had an elective medical procedure at Walter Reed on Dec. 22, 2023. Austin was on leave at the time of...

    Silver has been used for thousands of years as ornaments and utensils, for trade, and as the basis for many monetary systems. Of all the metals, pure silver has the whitest color, the highest optical reflectivity, and the highest thermal and electrical conductivity. Backstory. Whenever you read some precious metals expert discussing the industrial uses of silver, here is the typical spiel that goes: "Silver is essential in jewelry, electronics, medical, solar, electric vehicles, and Green Energy storage systems (i.e., batteries)." Very good, Captain Obvious, but it's my fervent belief that military and aerospace usages of silver gobbles as much...

    For the sixth year in a row, the Department of Defense (DOD) has failed a self-audit of 29 standalone entities controlling $3.8 trillion in assets and responsible for $4 trillion in liabilities. Seven of the 29 audited entities achieved a passing score. The Medicare-Eligible Retiree Health Care Fund received a "qualified opinion" indicting auditor found "misstatements" (if you do this when talking to an FBI agent you go to prison) that allegedly did not change the bottom line. Three audits are still in progress. The remaining 18 failed, including money sumps like the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and National...
