  • How Russia Targets the U.S. Military

    Politico ^ | June 12, 2017 | Ben Schreckinger
    Putin has made the creation of a pro-Russian “alternative media ecosystem” to, in his words, smash “the Anglo-Saxon monopoly on the information stream” a top priority of his foreign policy. A significant prong of those operations is aimed at the American military community, and the Russian activity has ramped up in recent years as tensions have increased over sanctions, the annexation of Crimea and the expansion of NATO. In the 20th century, intelligence agencies looking to build ties with foreign soldiers might have gone through the trouble of sending agents out to watering holes near military bases, waiting for servicemen...
  • As 'Schumer Shutdown Clock' Ticks, American Military Feels Impact Abroad

    Press Secretary Sarah Sanders shared a heart-wrenching tweet Saturday highlighting the sacrifices that the American military makes on a daily basis and continues to make in spite of what occurs in Washington. Elsewhere on Twitter, the Senate GOP shared a #SchumerShutdown Clock counting the hours since Democrats forced a government shutdown.Sanders tweeted a photo showing an American Forces Network TV screen saying “Due to the government shutdown, AFN services are not available.” AFN provides television and entertainment such as professional sports, movies, music, and many more simple pleasures to American military around the world. I received this from a young...

    Democrats on Capitol Hill continue to put the needs of illegal immigrants over Americans Friday afternoon as the likelihood of a government shutdown increases by the hour. During an emergency White House briefing Friday morning, Budget Director Mick Mulvaney explained what will happen if Democrats don't agree to a deal by midnight. "The military will still go to work.  They will not get paid.  The border will still be patrolled.  They will not get paid.  Folks will still be fighting the fires out West.  They will not get paid.  The parks will be open.  People won't get paid," Mulvaney said. "Parks will...

  • What A Government Shutdown Looks Like For The Military

    While it is hard to see through all the tax bill drama, our federal government is, once again, facing a potential government shutdown on Friday. While we all hope and expect that this disaster will be averted, it is important to understand what can happen when the government shuts down. It’s happened before, as recently as 2013, and there’s no reason to think it won’t happen again. And it can have a direct impact on military families. Please note: very little is written in law. Much of this information comes from understanding what has happened in previous shutdowns and interpretations...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 01/16/2018 | Robert Donache
    Democrats are threatening to hold national security hostage, potentially costing the economy billions and forcing hundreds of thousands of federal government employees to go without pay in exchange for securing legal protections for 800,000 illegal immigrants. Congress has three days to strike a deal to keep the government funded through October. If members fail to come to an agreement by Jan. 19, all “non-essential” government employees and active U.S. Military personnel will be working with out pay (including troops currently deployed). Funding for agencies like federal museums or national parks will also be cut off. Congressional Democrats are apparently content with allowing military...

    Martin Luther King Jr.'s childhood home, historic Ebenezer Baptist Church and the visitor center at MLK National Historic Site in Atlanta are closed amid the federal government shutdown. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports a smattering of people wandered the park's grounds during the closures Saturday. Freedom Hall, which is privately owned, remained open for visitors to take in exhibits about King, Rosa Parks and Gandhi, but employees said attendance had dropped dramatically for a Saturday. Still, some were trying to make the best of what was their first visit to the historic site. Aric Dupre, who traveled from Cincinnati for a...

    Talks between Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and congressional Republican leaders have broken down, raising anxieties among lawmakers on both sides of the aisle about finding a way to end the government shutdown. Schumer had not spoken to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) or Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) as of 8 p.m. Saturday evening, the shutdown’s first day. Neither side showed any signs of backing down when the Senate adjourned Saturday evening without a deal in sight. While both sides are furiously playing the blame game, McConnell thinks he has the upper hand and plans to raise pressure...

    I just saw a reference to the 690,000 dreamers whose future is being "held hostage" by the Evil Republicans. Does anyone know how many military wives and children's NEXT MEALS, RENT PAYMENTS, AND GAS FOR TRIPS TO THE DOCTOR are being held hostage by the treacherous shutdownschumer's democrat party by supporting the government shutdown? If it's TEN, it's ten too many. However, I have a feeling that it is a lot more than 690,000. Dammit people, where are our priorities??? Can't we get a crowd of dependent wives and children to the front lawn of the White House to serve...

    Usually we can expect two things when the guilty are about to be exposed: 1. Deflections and/or excuses from friends and allies of the perps, AND 2. Outright, flat denials from the perps themselves. So, when it comes to the growing body of information about FISA abuse in surveillance of political opponents, has anyone noticed that while we’ve been hearing a growing swell of deflections from friends and the corrupt MSM, we’re just not hearing the usual flat out denials from the perps themselves? There has been no such barking of clear, flat denials from the Core group of Democrat...

    It's not going to be easy for any military members overseas to watch the NFL playoffs on TV on Sunday. One alternative: watching the AFC Championship Game between the Patriots and Jaguars right here on Due to the government shutdown, the Pentagon has announced that the American Forces Network (AFN) won't be active until things are back up and running again in Washington DC. The AFN is the easiest way for soldiers to stay on top of American entertainment when they're deployed outside the country, but it's funded by the government, which is why it's down right now. AFN...

    In 2013, House Republicans shut down the federal government in a doomed effort to defund then President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act. It lasted 17 days and accomplished nothing. Amazingly, Democrats have decided to follow the same lame playbook. Back in 2013, Obama called it the “Republican shutdown” — and he was right, even if his party controlled the White House and Senate. Top aide Dan Pfeiffer likened the shutdown caucus to terrorists with a “bomb strapped to their chest.” Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., had a similar view. The solidly conservative congressman called those pushing the shutdown “lemmings with suicide...

    The Democratic Party have a tested and true playbook that is as predictable as the sunrise – when backed into a corner, cry racism. Last year, liberal college professors called racist everything from math, to the song “Jingle Bells,” to showing up on time. During the Obama administration, every policy disagreement was labeled racist. Now, pointing out the reality of living conditions in countries where people routinely risk their lives to flee is racist. And just like with every “problem” liberals find, they have a government solution for it. In the case of President Donald Trump and his “s-hole countries”...

    This may seem like an odd moment for saying so, but a year into the presidency of Donald Trump, I’m elated. Trump was not my first or even second choice for president, but a full two years ago I predicted he would win. I also predicted he’d be a progressive president, which explained why I was not among his supporters and why I am so pleased now. Expecting Progressive Trump was a reasonable assumption. Trump supported the 2009 stimulus, the auto bailouts and the bank bailouts. He’d recently left the Democratic Party and had raised a ton of money for...

    President Donald Trump attacked Democrats on Saturday after far left party shutdown the US government for illegal aliens in the US. Trump was right– A strong majority of Americans agree with the president that shutting down the government for illegal aliens is a complete disgrace. The GOP sent out this email on Saturday morning– New national polling spells trouble for Democrats, particularly Senate Democrats in states President Trump carried in 2016. The far left base might be happy with the #SchumerShutdown, but that’s definitely not the case in battleground states across the country. From CNN…
