    This article posting gives me fear, but it must be said. I have worked for the Federal government and know for a fact that Federal employees, almost all of them, have an intense dislike for conservatives and Trump in particular. They may come after me and probably will in some form or fashion, but someone has to make a sacrifice to get the truth out. If people could only see what it is like on the inside, they would be in shock at the hatred harbored for everyday Americans. Those in supervisory positions absolutely will not tolerate ANYONE challenging their...

    Full Title: DOD IG REVEALS THE PENTAGON LET $27.7 BILLION ‘EXPIRE’ AS TRUMP SEEKS $5.7 BILLION IN BORDER WALL FUNDINGThe Defense Department has relinquished over $27 billion to the U.S. Treasury since 2013 simply because it couldn't spend the money quick enough, according to a DOD Inspector General report released Tuesday.The DOD was required to fork over the "expired funds" because the Pentagon failed to spend it "within the legal timeframes," according to the report.The revelation comes as President Donald Trump is considering declaring a state of emergency that would allow him to bypass Congress and leverage unobligated military funds...
  • POTUS ends DoD practice of publishing of watchdog reports to keep from tipping off enemies

    President Donald Trump has instructed acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan to stop releasing Pentagon inspector general reports that detail problems within DoD to the public because they tip off our enemies. It is longstanding practice to permit independent inspectors general to publish public reports detailing all the things that are going wrong, the Washinton Examiner noted. But during a Cabinet meeting Wednesday, the president turned to Shanahan and said, “I don’t want it to happen anymore, Mr. Secretary. You understand that?”

    Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan started his first day on the job Tuesday with a welcome memo that asserted the Pentagon “remains focused on safeguarding our nation” under the direction of President Trump. “As acting secretary of defense, I now look forward to working with President Trump to carry out his vision alongside strong leaders including the service secretaries, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the combatant commanders, and senior personnel in the Office of the Secretary of Defense,” Shanahan wrote. “The Department of Defense continues to be one of our nation’s bedrock institutions. Our foundational strength lies in the remarkable...

    Why not Lt. Col. Allen West for the next Secretary of Defense? He's old-school, no-nonsense, and if President Donald Trump nominates a black conservative to lead the U.S. armed forces, the Left will go in violence mode, don't you think? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allen_West_(politician)

    President Trump on Sunday said deputy defense secretary Patrick Shanahan will take over as acting secretary of the department on Jan. 1 to cover the accelerated departure of Jim Mattis — after a string of disagreements between Trump and Mattis. The Hill reported that Shanahan wasn’t close with Mattis; however he is liked by the White House. “He’s not a policy or geopolitics guy. He’s a business guy,” a source told Defense News. “But he’s spent the last year learning from the best. And Shanahan is known for having a good relationship” with Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

    Obviously as a reward for committing theft of classified documents for the democrats, Barack Obama has named Alissa Starzak to the legal department at the Pentagon. It’s a position she has never achieved on her own and is a large promotion over her previous jobs. But why put someone with a history of stealing classified secrets to a job where she could steal the country’s most guarded secrets? It’s a reward. Republicans in both houses of congress have accused her of making copies of documents and carrying them out of the Pentagon for use by Diane Feinstein and her committee...

    WASHINGTON — Three men from Northern Virginia have been charged with defrauding the Department of Defense of nearly $9 billion in contracts. Abdul Huda Farouki, 75, of McLean, his brother Mazen Farouki, 73, of Boyce and Salah Maarouf, 71, of Fairfax all pleaded not guilty to eight counts each of fraud and violating sanctions against Iran. Federal prosecutors say the three men — all executives connected to defense contractor Anham FZCO based in the United Arab Emirates — were awarded an $8 billion contract to provide supplies and food to American troops in Afghanistan in 2012. The indictment says that...

    “Right now, the feedback looks like we are going to a 6.8 caliber round,” Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley said recently. The service has a list of its top six modernization priorities and “soldier lethality” is one of the items. The most high-profile program in that category is the squad automatic rifle. Army Secretary Mark Esper at the Association of the United States Army annual conference — while promising the service is speeding up the way it does acquisition — singled out the program as one that would see prototypes in the near future. “The bottom line is...

    President Trump said in an early morning tweet on Thursday that he is "bringing out the military" to secure the border with Mexico, calling it a "National Emergency." "Brandon Judd of the National Border Patrol Council is right when he says on @foxandfriends that the Democrat inspired laws make it tough for us to stop people at the Border," Trump tweeted. "MUST BE CHANDED, but I am bringing out the military for this National Emergency. They will be stopped!" Trump tweeted last week that he would use the military to stop a caravan of migrants from Central America, which has...

John Richardson have initially tested positive for the deadly poison ricin at the Pentagon’s mail facility, according to a report. The packages, which were delivered Monday, were intercepted before making it into the sprawling headquarters of the Defense Department in Virginia near Washington, DC, spokesman Chris Sherwood said Tuesday.

    According to a report by the Washington Post, some 180 federal employees have registered for training on the February 4-5 weekend in both the rights of workers and in civil disobedience. The report said that dozens of federal bureaucrats attended a support group that foments opposition to the Trump administration, less than two weeks after the inauguration President Donald Trump.    While the Post report pointed out the obvious public protests that have emerged since the beginning of the Trump administration, “there’s another level of resistance to the new president that is less visible and potentially more troublesome,” it said....
  • Defense Budget Shifts Military's Focus From Terrorism To China And Russia

    NPR ^ | Aug 2018 | David Welna
    The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019 was enacted this month well ahead of a still-pending budget bill. It was also the earliest date on the legislative calendar that the NDAA has been sent to a president for his signature in more than two decades. Congress matched dollar-for-dollar what the Pentagon asked for. The bill sped through Congress as the nation's military continues waging war in Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Niger, Libya, Somalia and an untold number of other global hot spots. All arise from what's been the Pentagon's main post-Sept. 11 focus: fighting terrorism. But this new...
