    The lies from Fort Benning just keep on cominíÖ In 2015, former Secretary of Defense Ash and Trash Carter desperately needed some proof; real or fraudulent, that women could hack it in the combat arms. The $36 million dollar, Marine Corps study couldnít do that. It clearly showed in minute detail how all female and coed units were slaughtered by all male units in simulated combat. Enter Captain Griest and First Lieutenant Haver, who, along with several other females, were attending Ranger School down at Fort Benning, Georgia. The word quickly went out. There would be one or two Lady...

    Over the course of his 27-year career, Nolan Ryan won 324 games and struck out an all-time best 5,714 batters. It was presumably those feats of longevity and performance that made him a first-ballot Hall of Famer and placed him on a short list of the greatest pitchers of all time. Ryan is also remembered, however, for being involved in one of the most memorable brawls in baseball history -- and being someone you absolutely do not want to mess with. On Aug. 4, 1993 -- the final season of Ryan's career -- the righty toed the rubber for a...

    Hereís a brief update to the Pregnant Ranger story posted on US Defense Watch yesterday: A source at the Mountain Ranger Camp at Dahlonega has informed USDW that a female Ranger School student is indeed pregnant. Apparently, this student and her boyfriend are in the same Ranger School class (yes, Virginia, itís not your grandfatherís, your fatherís or even your older brotherís Army anymore). Both students were recycled during the Benning phase. While in the ĎGulagí awaiting the beginning of the Benning phase recycle, she got pregnant.

    US military policies and operations are now being run on a fantasy, the fantasy of women successfully serving and fighting with the combat arms and special operations forces. The fantasy was legally authorized by former Secretary of Defense, Ash Carter, in December of 2015, and which is largely propagated by Pentagon lies, Pentagon cowardice, Generation Rationalization on active duty, Hollywood liberal morons and the feminist lobby, which consists of women who think that itís really cool Kaylee wants to be in Delta, but who themselves will be 10,000 miles from the nearest round going down range when Kaylee is bisected...

    It is not only athletes who are waging peaceful protests against police brutality while showing their support for the Black Lives Matter movement by taking a knee for the national anthem. The young son of Will & Grace star Debra Messing is also taking a stand, the actress revealed on Instagram, recounting what happened when she and her 13-year-old Roman recently attended a New York Rangers game. '"Please stand for the Star Spangled Banner." Son: "Mom, I want to sit down in protest. Can we do that?" Me: "Yes, honey. We can do that,"' wrote Messing. She then added: 'Whoís...

    Texas Rangers pitcher Cole Hamels wasn't able to move into his dream Missouri mansion- so he gave it to a children's charity just in time for Christmas. Hamels, 33, and his wife, Heidi, announced Monday they are donating their $9.75million mansion and 100 acres of land in southwest Missouri to a charity that provides camps for children with special needs and chronic illnesses and their siblings. The 32,000-square foot home will be donated to Camp Barnabas. 'Seeing the faces, hearing the laughter, reading the stories of the kids they serve; there is truly nothing like it,' Hamels said in a...

    Hall of Fame hurler Nolan Ryan left a lasting impression on the state of Texas and on Major League Baseball with an illustrious 27-year career. His 5,714 strikeouts, 324 wins and seven no-hitters cemented his legacy as one of the greats. But it was 24 years ago Friday that the Ryan Express immortalized himself -- and it didnít have much to do with his pitching that day. On August 4, 1993, the 46-year-old Ryan drilled Chicago White Sox third baseman Robin Ventura in the elbow with a fastball. Ventura then made a decision he undoubtedly regrets to this day. He...

    Wonderful and informative discussion thread on the historically-accurate and varied guns in AMC's current tv series "The Son." For example: "....hello all I was the armorer on THE SON. The Lewis gun was Adopted buy Belgium in 1912 and the British soon after so its use in 1915 not a stretch.

    After months of planning and deliberations, the 75th Ranger Regiment has been deployed to Syria to participate in the war against ISIS as the coalition closes in on the so-called caliphateís capital city of Raqqa. Yesterday, the first images emerged of Stryker armored vehicles on their way to Manbij. This comes weeks after Rangers deployed to theater with their Strykers and elements of the 75th Ranger Regiment had been passing through Kurdistan. By looking at the call sign tag on the back of the Stryker, it is evident that this is 3rd Ranger Battalion out of Fort Benning, Georgia,

    Itís not official yet, but it looks like Kennedy and the editor of Deadspin may be headed to the octagon! Last week, U.S. Army Green Beret Tim Kennedy announced his decision to step away from competing professionally as a mixed martial artist for good. Now, a bizarre Twitter feud involving Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has raised the possibility of the 37-year-old middleweight heading back to the octagon for an encore fight. Against whom?

    WASHINGTON ó Ten women who were commissioned Army officers in the spring graduated from the initial infantry training course Wednesday, becoming the Armyís first female infantry lieutenants. The women were among 166 soldiers to complete the Infantry Officer Basic Leadership Course at Fort Benning in Georgia, a 17-week class that provides new officers the basic skills to lead a rifle platoon into combat, said Army Lt. Col. Matthew W. Weber, the commander of the unit that oversees the course. Officers are commissioned through ROTC, Officer Candidate School or the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y.

    Throwing out a first pitch before a baseball game can be a harrowing experience. And letís face it, the risks far outweigh the rewards. A great first pitch is met with either indifference, or a smattering of applause from the fans. A bad first pitch will be mocked forever. This one falls into the latter category. Prior to Wednesdayís game against the Oakland Athletics, Miss Texas Daniella Rodriguez threw out the first pitch for the Houston Astros. It did not go well. While standing on the grass in front of the mound, Rodriguez displayed a strong leg kick and a...

    Yesterday, Ash Carter jumped the shark and announced that women would now be authorized to serve in the combat arms and special operations units of the US military without exception. I find it more than insidious that Carter made this major announcement less than 24 hours in the wake of the horrific San Bernardino terrorist attack. It’s almost like they wanted to fly right under the radar of the media, which has deployed in force to Southern California’s Inland Empire. Carter may have thought he was being clever and no doubt he is under orders from the White House. Unfortunately,...

Steve Russell, an infantry battalion commander who is Ranger qualified, has continued his quest as a third woman prepares to graduate from the Armyís most demanding combat leadership school Friday at Fort Benning. In a second letter to Secretary John McHugh dated Oct. 7, Russell said he is concerned that some of the documentation he has requested has been destroyed. ďI was somewhat puzzled by the Army officials informing me...

    ARLINGTON, Texas -- Cole Hamels and the Texas Rangers finally clinched the AL West title on the last day of the regular season. Hamels pitched a three-hitter, Adrian Beltre hit a go-ahead homer and the Rangers beat the Angels 9-2 Sunday, eliminating Los Angeles from playoff contention. A year after their 95 losses were the most in the American League, two months after they were still eight games out of first place and three days after ensuring themselves a postseason spot, the Rangers wrapped up their sixth division title. Texas plays its first AL division series game since 2011 on...
