    A recent military report on sexual assault in the military shocked many in Washington and around the nation, but a leading expert on military personnel revealed the prevalence of men assaulting other men is one of the major headlines in this study. The extended analysis of the report first appeared in Monday’s edition of the the Washington Times. The Defense Department survey of sexual assault in the military during fiscal 2012 estimated 26,000 assaults took place in the armed forces. Nearly 3,000 of them were formally reported. Just more than 6 percent of women reported being victims of assault and...

    Military-readiness advocate Elaine Donnelly warns that the Obama administration’s decision to put women in ground-combat roles amounts to “social engineering to achieve a political end in the name of diversity.” She adds that the policy shift means “lives could be lost unnecessarily, not just women, but men.” Donnelly’s organization, the Center for Military Readiness, released a 42-page report earlier this week exploring the unintended consequences of putting women on the front lines. “It will do great harm to women in the military, especially those who will find themselves in the infantry—something there’s no indication they wanted,” Donnelly said Wednesday in...

    Elaine Donnelly, President of the Center for Military Readiness, predicted today that efforts by liberals in Congress to repeal the 1993 law regarding homosexuals in the military would not succeed. “Members of Congress are starting to take this issue seriously,” she said. “Indications are that repeal of the 1993 law would hurt the ‘Three R’s,’ recruiting, retention, and overall readiness in the volunteer force.” On Monday Rep. Ellen Tauscher (D-CA) announced that she will soon re-introduce legislation to repeal the 1993 law, Section 654, Title 10 click here , which is commonly mislabeled “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” In response, Donnelly...

    A conservative pro-family leader believes the Obama administration will move sooner rather than later to attempt to repeal the law that forbids homosexuals from serving in the military. In recent weeks there have been conflicting reports about a timetable for the new, more heavily Democratic-controlled Congress to try to repeal the 1993 law that bans homosexuals from the military. The Washington Times reported that president-elect Barack Obama will not move for months, perhaps not until 2010, to ask Congress to repeal the ban. The paper quoted two sources who advised the Obama transition team about the potentially explosive issue. But...

    "Finally, a member of Congress has announced a laudable plan to do something about the abusive behavior of demonstrators of the anti-war left. Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.), a member of the House Armed Services Committee, has introduced legislation to deal with what he has described as “a growing number of our fellow citizens [who] are abusing their right of free expression through vandalism and violent protest aimed at military recruiters and those who wish to serve.”" Finally someone talking serious about Code Pink's anarchical activities. There are a lot more examples of Code Pink's crimes then noted in the article....
  • Analyst: Lifting homosexual ban could drive up HIV rates in the military, hurt readiness

    Analyst: Lifting homosexual ban could drive up HIV rates in the military, hurt readiness Chad Groening October 22, 2007 A conservative military watchdog says there would be serious readiness problems in the military if the next president repealed the law that prohibits homosexuals from serving in the military.

    It should raise eyebrows when Democratic presidential candidates, and particularly Sen. Hillary Clinton, say that 18-year-old girls should have to register with Selective Service. When the question came up during Monday’s “YouTube” debate on CNN, all of the candidates who answered—Sen. Christopher Dodd, Sen. Barack Obama, John Edwards, and Mike Gravel—said that they opposed the draft, but if there were one, women should be part of it. Hillary Clinton’s answer was particularly ironic, since her husband Bill Clinton famously avoided military service in the Vietnam era. I am not aware that young Chelsea Clinton, or the daughters of Pres. George...

    Imagine these scenarios: A junior female soldier has an affair with an infantry officer in Iraq. When the relationship cools she revengefully accuses him of sexual assault. Her e-mailed complaint activates the Office of the Victim Advocate in the Pentagon. OVA officials pressure the accused officer’s commander to remove him from his unit on the eve of battle. At the Naval Academy, a female midshipman willingly parties with a classmate. Both have broken rules against alcohol and sex in Bancroft Hall, but to escape punishment she accuses him of sexual assault. The male midshipman is threatened with criminal prosecution and...

    WASHINGTON – Harriet Miers, President Bush's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court to replace Sandra Day O'Connor, is on record as supporting the establishment of the International Criminal Court, homosexual adoptions, a major local tax increase and women in combat, WorldNetDaily has learned. While some conservative leaders and organizations were stunned by the appointment, most were not alarmed by the lack of a paper trail by the nominee who has never served as a judge at any level. But a profile of her positions as a leader of the American Bar Association, a Dallas city councilwoman and as presidential counselor...

    Did Miers Allow Armed Forces to Flout Law? by Elaine Donnelly Posted Oct 14, 2005 There is no reason to doubt the integrity of Harriet Miers, a person whom President Bush trusts and has nominated to the Supreme Court. There is reason for concern, however, about her actions as White House counsel on legal matters affecting the military. Miers does not have a judicial paper trail, but to the greatest extent possible the Senate should consider her record as the President’s chief legal adviser. The Office of White House Counsel sits at the intersection of law, politics and policy. Given...

    Allowing Homosexuals Would Boost Military Recruitment, Group Argues By Alexa Moutevelis Correspondent July 26, 2005 ( - A group that wants homosexuals to serve openly in the U.S. military said Monday that the military could attract as many as 41,000 new recruits if the ban on homosexuals were lifted. "The 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' law hangs like a 'Gays Not Welcome' sign outside the Pentagon's front door," said Sharra Greer, director of law and policy for Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN). "Thousands of lesbian and gay Americans are ready to answer our nation's call to service, but are turned...

    You have probably read about passage of legislation by the House Armed Services Committee last Wednesday to codify women’s exemption from direct ground combat units, and support units that collocate with them. Contrary to many news reports, this Hunter/McHugh Amendment is stronger than an earlier version passed in the Military Personnel Subcommittee because it affects all branches of the service, not just the Army. During the debate late on Wednesday evening HASC Chairman Duncan Hunter (R-CA) and Subcommittee Chairman John McHugh (R-NY) showed impressive leadership in explaining why the legislation is necessary. It is, as they said, entirely appropriate for...

    Urgent Message To: Friends of CMR From: Elaine Donnelly, President, Center for Military Readiness Re: Hunter/McHugh Bill to Codify DoD Regulations on Women in Land Combat – Your Help Needed I am pleased to inform you that Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA), Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, has co-sponsored an amendment to the 2006 Defense Authorization Bill that would prevent top Army officials from unilaterally changing regulations that exempt female soldiers from having to serve in land combat-collocated support units. Chairman Hunter requested that Rep. John McHugh (R-NY), chairman of the Military Personnel Subcommittee, insert language into the National...

    Gen. Peter Schoomaker raised eyebrows when he dismissed as not a "gender issue" the women-in-combat controversy at an American Enterprise Institute symposium. The Army Chief of Staff April 11 answered a questioner who rightly praised the courage of female soldiers but expressed concern about the unprecedented number of women maimed or killed in Iraq (33, to date) and Afghanistan (5).

    It's very late. Does the President know what the Army is doing? On the issue of women in land combat, it seems no one is in charge. High-level civilians are circumventing law and policy, members of Congress are being misled and decorated generals seem to have lost all perspective. President Bush has been a strong leader on national defense, which makes it difficult to understand why he is saying one thing, but the Pentagon is doing another. During an interview with the Washington Times in January, Bush declared, "No women in [land] combat." He was referring to current Defense Department...

    I recently heard from a female soldier who feels betrayed by the Army. Calm but justifiably angry, the soldier said she is being assigned to a forward-support company that will "collocate" with the Army's new, modular infantry/armor land combat battalions. This is a serious change in policy, unfair to men and women soldiers alike. Under current regulations, women cannot be forced to serve in smaller direct ground-combat units such as infantry or armor battalions, or in companies that collocate with them. If the Defense Department wants to change these rules, law requires that the secretary must notify Congress no...

    The Department of Defense recently launched the America Supports You program, reportedly in response to the increased desire on the part of American citizens to express their encouragement for service men and women. Ebberts said "support [for the troops] is absolutely phenomenal. More and more Americans want to know how they can help." And the America Supports You website is already a hit, she said. During one recent morning, Ebberts recounted, "we had at least 12-hundred people go to the website to join the team, telling us about what they are doing for the troops. People want to show their...

    ( - The Pentagon's decision to stop U.S. military bases from sponsoring Boy Scout troops is another example of political correctness, according to the leader of a military watchdog group, and will hurt the Defense Department's recruitment efforts in the long run. Elaine Donnelly, president of the Center for Military Readiness, told Wednesday that with the Pentagon's new edict to military bases, a condition of settling a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the military is sending the wrong kind of message. "I don't think the Department of Defense should endorse that mindset (of the ACLU)...

    The presidential debates covered many questions, but the issue of homosexuality in the military was not one of them. That is unfortunate, since voters should know where the two presidential candidates stand on this and other forms of social engineering in the military. The record of President George W. Bush is not perfect, but the doctrinaire views of his rival, Sen. John Kerry, are cause for serious concern. In 1993, Senator John Kerry cast his vote on the losing side of a veto-proof, bipartisan (63-33) vote against President Bill Clinton's plan to accommodate homosexuals in the military. But Kerry did...
