    The American Psychological Association has taken the extraordinary step of retracting an in-house journal article that asserted the rate of rape and other sexual trauma among military men was as much as 15 times higher than the Pentagon’s own survey. In a press released posted Sunday night, the APA said outside scholars had examined the study, “Preliminary Data Suggest Rates of Male Sexual Trauma May be Higher than Previously Reported,” and determined that the method for randomly selecting and surveying male combat veterans was flawed.

    Quinn said that they brought the police commander to their camp, where he confessed to the assault. When the man shrugged his shoulders and laughed in their faces, they threw him to the ground. Quinn explained that it wasn't meant to be revenge, but to send the message to the man and to the other local policemen that sexual assaults would not be tolerated.

    The White House dodged questions Monday about allegations that U.S. military officials are ordering U.S. soldiers to ignore child abuse in Afghanistan committed by Afghan militia, military and police, and instead indicated that those orders reflect Defense Department policy that the White House is not reviewing. "For the rules of engagement and the kind of structure that's in place to guide the relationship between the United States and Afghan members of the military, I'd refer you to the Department of Defense for that," White House spokesman Josh Earnest said. Earnest was pressed further to say whether President Obama is looking...

    In his last phone call home, Lance Cpl. Gregory Buckley Jr. told his father what was troubling him: From his bunk in southern Afghanistan, he could hear Afghan police officers sexually abusing boys they had brought to the base. At night we can hear them screaming, but were not allowed to do anything about it, the Marines father, Gregory Buckley Sr., recalled his son telling him before he was shot to death at the base in 2012. He urged his son to tell his superiors. My son said that his officers told him to look the other way because its...

    U.S. Army Rangers drill in 2011. A Pentagon spokesman said the militarys elite forces need more diversity, and without, the nations security could very well be compromised. We dont know where we will find ourselves in the future, said Army Col. Michael Copenhaver, whos published a paper on diversity among the special operating forces, USA Today reported. One thing is for sure: We will find ourselves around the globe. And around the globe you have different cultural backgrounds everywhere. Having that kind of a diverse force can only increase your operational capability. The comments came as USA Today requested...

    Under the banner of what is dishonestly called a gay pride or gay rights flag, hate, fascism, and intolerance has festered for years, specifically against Christians and conservatives. Under the auspices of a rights and equality symbol, Leftists have been on a rampage to take way the rights of others through bullying, lies, and online terrorism. The list of misdeeds and victims resulting from an increasingly emboldened Big Gay Hate Machine continues to grow. Under this banner of hate, people are outed against their will, terrorized out of business merely for being Christian, bullied and harassed for thoughtcrimes; moreover, hate...

    Reuters ^ | 6/9/15 | David Alexander
    Defense Secretary Ash Carter said on Tuesday the Pentagon has updated its equal opportunity policy to bar discrimination based on sexual orientation, putting it in the same category as discrimination based on race, religion, color, age and sex. The change in policy, announced by Carter at a gay and lesbian pride celebration, gives U.S. military troops a broader range of choices in pursuing complaints if they believe they have been discriminated against based on sexual orientation. The change brought the rules into conformity with the 2011 decision to end the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, which allowed gays and...

    A married Army general on Tuesday introduced his spouse at a Pentagon event that featured lots of top brass, including Defense Secretary Ashton Carter as the keynote speaker. What made this seemingly routine introduction noteworthy is that Brig. Gen. Randy S. Taylor introduced his husband, Lucas. My husband Lucas is sitting up front here, Gen. Taylor said of the man in the same row as Mr. Carter, Army Secretary John McHugh and other senior officials. He said Lucas has subjugated his own career to support the generals frequent moves over an 18-year relationship.

  • Virginia Tech engineering professor discusses gender-based violence in STEM fields

    Donna Riley, an engineering professor at Virginia Tech, visited the University Monday to discuss gender-based violence in science, technology, engineering and math fields. Riley discussed and analyzed the engineering, academic and broader U.S. cultures which work together to deny gender-based violence. Riley said gender-based violence not only includes rape, but also stalking, intimate partner violence, harassment, non-consensual sexual contact, verbal abuse and misogynist hate crimes. In the Survey of Academic Field Experiences published by science journal PLOS One in 2014, Riley said two-thirds of women surveyed reported being the victim of sexual harassment while researching in a scientific field, and...

    Hi everybody, Im Bill Whittle and this is the Firewall. Lets just assume for a moment that youre a radical, left-wing zealot, who was raised by actual communists, and who, naturally enough views the United States military as the tool of capitalist exploitation and colonial racism. Now, further assume that through a perfect storm of Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds, fate, money, power and media bias somehow conspired to make you Commander in Chief of those same armed forces. What would you do? You couldnt very well scuttle 11 carrier strike groups. You cant just destroy entire...

    Thousands of Americans, including former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and famed evangelist Franklin Graham, have come to the defense of a chaplain who could be thrown out of the Navy because of his Christian faith. Lt. Cmdr.

Modder, who is endorsed by the Assemblies of God, has also been accused of being unable to function in the diverse and pluralistic environment of the Naval Nuclear Power Training Command in Goose Creek, S.C.

    (CNSNews.com) - The Obama White House says it welcomes comments by the new defense secretary about transgender people serving in the United States military.

And for that reason, we here at the White House welcome the comments from the secretary of defense. "But in terms of -- of additional steps that the Department of Defense will take to...

    Obama's personal vendettas against any and all things Christian in our military Our feeble-minded usurper POTUS just wont quit. Just last week, I pointed out his inability or just outright refusal to learn. Then to prove me right Obama attended the National Prayer Breakfast and his extreme reticence to give voice to coupling the words Islam and terrorism in spite of its overwhelmingly obvious correct pairing, he not only stayed his incorrect course, but he reached back into history over multiple centuries and brought this countrys most populated religion, Christianity, into a comparative position. But our juvenile in the White...

    Vice President Joseph R. Biden said Democratic presidential candidates in 2016 should embrace President Obamas economic policies and run on what we have done instead of running away from the administration. In my view, those seeking to lead the nation should protect and defend and run, yes run, on what weve done and own what we have done, Mr. Biden said in a speech in Des Moines, Iowa. Stand for what we have done. Acknowledge what we have done. And be judged on what we have done, if we have any chance for continued resurgence in 2016. He added, Some...

The order went out Friday to a recruiting station in Phoenix that had been displaying the outdoor sign since at least October. The sign board also shows an image of a Special Forces patch and Ranger, Airborne and Special Forces tabs. An inquiry from Army Times to the U.S. Army Recruiting Command prompted the sandwich boards immediate removal.

    In mid-September, while President Obama was fending off complaints that he should have done more, done less, or done something different about the overlapping crises in Iraq and Syria, he traveled to Central Command headquarters, at MacDill Air Force Base in Florida. There he addressed some of the men and women who would implement whatever the U.S. military strategy turned out to be.

    A prominent activist for homosexual rights in the military is awaiting trial for forcible sodomy and abusive sexual contact, the Washington Blade reports. Air Force Lt. Joshua Seefried was initially charged in April, a development that went largely unreported by the media. The charges came about after complaints from U.S. Marine Lt. Edgar Luna, who is also homosexual. On a weekend in May of 2012, Seefried had gathered with a group of homosexual military officers in New York City. Luna was also present, and the group was celebrating the repeal of the militarys Dont Ask, Dont Tell policy, which Seefrieds...

    The RAND Corporation has released initial results from a study that estimates the number of U.S. service members who experienced sexual assault, sexual harassment or gender discrimination in the past year. The Department of Defense selected RAND to conduct this congressionally mandated study. Approximately 170,000 service members, or 30 percent of the 560,000 invited, answered questions for the study, one of the largest of its kind. RAND researchers estimate that approximately 20,000 of the U.S. military's 1.3 million active-duty members experienced one or more sexual assaults in the past year, including assaults by other service members, civilians, spouses or others....
