    Montana Republican Rep. Matt Rosendale introduced legislation Monday evening that prohibits the Department of Defense (DOD) from paying for, hosting or supporting adult cabaret performances. The Daily Caller first obtained a copy of the bill, which defines an “adult cabaret performance” as a performance that features topless dancers, go-go dancers, exotic dances, strippers or male or female impersonators who provide entertainment that appeals to prurient interest. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has said the DOD does not support or fund the shows, but reported that Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada had planned to host an all ages drag...

    The family of George Watts, Jr. “who died unexpectedly,” is suing the DOD, claiming “willful misconduct” because the DOD allegedly misled the public about the safety of the vaccine, according to The Defender, a publication of the Children’s Health Defense (CHD). According to the lawsuit, the Report of Death Investigation from the Bradford County Coroner’s Office “clearly document[ed] Mr. Watts’ vaccine-induced death and the proximate causal connection,” calling the “Primary Cause” of death “COVID-19 vaccine-related myocarditis.” [embedded court document at link] Watts received two doses of Pfizer vaccines, “an unlicensed product produced under the auspices of the DOD,” according to...

    Dr. Pierre Kory, a pulmonary and critical care medicine specialist, is blaming the nexus between the pharma industry and the government along with corrupt medical journals for deceiving the public about COVID-19 and vaccines, which resulted in “millions of lives lost.” “I always knew pharma was bad. I didn’t understand that they are literally a criminal syndicate, who have been committing crimes for decades. They pay fines, then move on and continue their standard operating business,” Kory said in an April 28 interview with EpochTV’s “American Thought Leaders” program. “When it came to government, I wasn’t aware of how corporations...

    Decades of consolidation have left the Pentagon vulnerable to mishaps—including when the sole maker of a crucial type of gunpowder went offlineMINDEN, La.—Nearly two years ago, an errant spark inside a mill caused an explosion so big it destroyed all the building’s equipment and blew a corrugated fiberglass wall 100 feet. It also shut down the sole domestic source of an explosive the Department of Defense relies on to produce bullets, mortar shells, artillery rounds and Tomahawk missiles. The ramshackle facility makes the original form of gunpowder, known today as black powder, a highly combustible material with hundreds of military...

    Welp, this just got interesting.The Pentagon, on Monday, warned that Joe Biden’s overreaching so-called “green energy” plans pose national security risks, as reported by Fox News. So now what’s a fossil-fuel-loathing, EV-loving president to do?According to Fox, the Department of Defense (DoD) recently warned the White House that the administration’s ridiculous offshore wind farm development goals could significantly impede U.S. Naval operations. Pentagon spokesperson Kelly Flynn told Fox News Digital:The initial assessment performed by DoD found complicated compatibility challenges with wind turbines near Navy and Air Force training.

    Despite working in information technology within an intelligence wing of the Air Force, Massachusetts Air National Guardsman Jack Teixeira would not have legally had access to the classified information he’s accused of leaking on a Discord server, former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Kash Patel said Friday. Patel’s assessment echoes what was written at RedState on Thursday. On Breitbart News, Patel also described several methods by which Teixeira could have gained access to the information: Patel said, first, the suspected leaker, Jack Teixeira, would not have had access to the information without someone within the Department of Defense (DOD) or...

    Participants in a Department of Defense training exercise at a Boston hotel entered the wrong room Tuesday and mistakenly detained a guest instead of the person assigned the role of the person to be detained, according to the FBI. The mistake happened about 10 p.m. ET with the Boston Division of the FBI helping the U.S. Department of Defense in conducting the Defense Department exercise. The exercise was meant to simulate a situation that personnel might encounter during an actual incident.

    A man was handcuffed and interrogated inside his own hotel room for roughly an hour after law enforcement agents went to the wrong room during a training exercise. FBI and DOD agents knocked on the room occupied by a man - a Delta Air Lines pilot according to WBZ - in the middle of the night and burst in, holding the man in cuffs for 45 minutes before they realized their mistake. The mishap occurred just after midnight on Wednesday on the 15th floor of Boston's Revere Hotel. An FBI official told their agents were assisting in a DOD...

    Right now, many of us vets are looking back on our years of service and wondering what the hell we did it all for. We used to know – for the USA. Yet you look at the disaster that is our country, our culture, and our beloved military, and you just want to go find a wall and pound your head against it. But a lot fewer folks are going to have this problem in the future because a lot fewer young people are joining our military. The Pentagon can't meet its recruiting goals, and, of course, the fault is...

    Self-declared "woke administrator" moved to a different job in the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) school district. A radical activist who has made anti-white comments is no longer in charge of “diversity” at the schools children of military members attend — though she hasn’t been fired or disciplined, the Pentagon said Thursday.

    The Biden administration quietly inserted itself into a private patent infringement lawsuit two biotech companies filed against COVID-19 vaccine maker Moderna, in a move experts said could establish a dangerous precedent. In a surprise filing last month, U.S. Attorney David Weiss issued a "statement of interest" in the case on behalf of the Department of Defense and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), invoking a rarely-used early 1900s law to argue that the federal government should take on any liability for patent infringement Moderna may be guilty of related to the development of its COVID-19 vaccine. "Where, as here,...

    Officials said Monday the Pentagon seeks to overhaul the way it buys munitions, requesting $30.6 billion in funding from Congress to scale up orders for the varieties of weapons needed to confront China. Surging security assistance to Ukraine has depleted U.S. weapons stockpiles and exposed a need to rethink how the Pentagon procures short, medium, and long-range munitions from defense...

    The three-hour hearing showed that corporate-government collusion goes far deeper than the major platforms in Silicon Valley. The Select Committee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government held its second hearing Thursday with a focus on the “Twitter Files” that exposed corporate-government collusion in Twitter’s censorship regime. But the three-hour hearing showed the public-private partnership goes far deeper than the major platforms operating out of Silicon Valley. Lawmakers heard testimony from independent Substack journalists Michael Shellenberger and Matt Taibbi, two of the primary reporters who published the series after Elon Musk took over the platform. The pair shared how the...

    Republican Senator Tommy Tuberville is blocking all of Biden’s military and civilian nominations to the Department of Defense until the Pentagon reverses its new policy to pay for travel costs for service members seeking an abortion. Tuberville called the Biden administration’s decision “shameful” and an attempt to use national security resources to promote a far-left agenda. “We believe our military and VA should be focused on national defense and veterans, not politics,” Tuberville said on the Senate floor. “Using our military and fake emergencies to make sure there are no limits on abortion is absolutely, positively shameful. It’s embarrassing to...

    Dr. Robert Redfield, a virologist and the former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), testified under oath Wednesday that he believes U.S. tax dollars paid for the research that created COVID and that the funds came from several agencies, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Department of Defense (DoD). So far, COVID has killed 1.1 million people in the United States and 6.8 million worldwide. Dr. Redfield testified before the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis. Redfield was the director of the CDC from 2018-2021. There, he "oversaw the agency's response to...

    The bloated agency is 0 for 5, but in the words of Michael McCord, the department’s own financial executive, “I would not say that we’ve flunked.” For context, the pass rate was a mere 39%, after a 28-year preparatory period; what’s he using, common core math? Clearly this guy is unqualified to run the corner lemonade stand, let alone an agency with a nearly $2 trillion annual budget.

The meeting organized by ALBA, a bloc of leftist-governed countries, aims to coordinate a regional strategy on the prevention and control of Ebola, which has killed about 5,000 people in West Africa but in the Americas has only reached the United States. U.S. military personnel and Cuban medical specialists are already posted in West Africa and prepared to work side by side if needed, officials have said, and Washington...
