    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) on Thursday dismissed as "offensive" the criticism that President-elect Donald Trump is considering too many retired generals for Cabinet positions. The Democratic lawmaker, who last month raised eyebrows by meeting with Trump in his New York tower, said that the veterans are more than capable of serving in high government positions and their military experience should not disqualify them from the job. "I don't share [critics'] concerns. In fact, as a veteran ... I find it pretty offensive for people to outright discriminate against veterans," Gabbard said in an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper. "Here you...

    Obama Aide Insults WWII Vets on Pearl Harbor: GET OVER IT! By George | December 6, 2016 Obama administration press secretary Josh Earnest has made a career on his snarky, hyper-partisan comments from the press room podium, but this was UNFORGIVABLE. Addressing the corrupt media hacks about the upcoming visit of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to Pearl Harbor, Earnest dropped a comment that any WWII veteran would take as an INSULT. From BizPac Review: During a White House press briefing Monday, Earnest was asked whether veterans may be offended by Abe’s visit if he expressed no regret over the...

David Petraeus, who has long resisted calls to run for political office, is teaming up with retired NASA astronaut Mark Kelly to create a new group urging greater gun control. The two announced on Friday that they were launching Veterans Coalition for Common Sense to encourage elected leaders to "do more to prevent gun tragedies." The group will feature veterans from every branch of the military who are urging lawmakers to toughen gun laws, the organization said in a news release.

    A young Norwegian man I know well, and who is married to a relative of mine, happens to be a veteran of Norway's armed forces - our staunch NATO allies. The day after Veteran's Day - seven days ago - he and his wife and their tiny daughter arrived in LAX to spend Thanksgiving week with US relatives. Though he's had no problems before in traveling to the US, this time was different. His first problem resulted from his checking "Yes" in the wrong spot on the questionnaire. The question had the word "Court" in it, and he was thinking...

    The Great War--World War I--officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919. However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. November 11, 1918 is generally regarded as the end of “The Great War.” One year later, President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day. He declared, "To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism...

Several weeks prior to leaving his job in June, Hughes sent an internal email saying workers “spend very little time on the phone or engaged in assigned productive activity.” Some Veterans Crisis Line employees answer under five calls per day. They also end their shifts early despite the sharp rise in the volume of...

They got no help. These Americans' absolute refusal to knuckle-under had been hardened by service in World War II.

    The Staten Island Advance ^ | October 16, 2016 | Alicia Colon
    Many of the Republicans who will be voting for Donald Trump next month do not like him but they despise Hillary Clinton even more. He certainly wasn't my first choice. I wanted Rick Perry and when he dropped out, I was sure the winner would be either Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio. But as the primary process continued and polling became the operative tool, I began to suspect that the whole thing was rigged. When Gov. John Kasich came in as a late candidate that pushed Perry into the second tier debate group, my suspicions were confirmed that the media...

  • How Jimmy Stewart's agony in It's a Wonderful Life came from extreme PTSD (tr)

    Jimmy Stewart suffered such extreme PTSD after being a fighter pilot in World War II that he acted out his mental distress during 'It's a Wonderful Life'. Stewart played George Bailey in the classic movie and channeled his anger and guilt into the scenes where he rages at his family. Stewart was haunted by 'a thousand black memories' from his time as an Air Force commanding officer that he took with him back to Hollywood after the war. Pilots who flew with him said that became 'Flak Happy' during World War II, a term to describe what is now known...

  • Hillary Has NO Recorded Donations to Veteran Groups

    10/04/2016 9:14:17 PM PDT · by DataDink · 16 replies
    I was looking for data on veterans donations by Hillary and Trump and came across the site at the link. No recorded proof of any veteran groups associations. None. Zero. Zilch. If you look up Trump on the same site, it comes up with several instances. I am sure the libs will say "the Clinton Foundation gives". While that is true, the foundation is other peoples money and is not the same. After all, they said Trump paying a veterans group from his foundation to satisfy a deal he had over a dispute with a government was not the same...

    There will be plenty of quibbling in the hours ahead, but Donald Trump clearly just created a new batch of problems for himself with his comments Monday morning, in which he suggested that veterans dealing with mental health problems aren't "strong" and "can't handle it." "When people come back from war and combat, they see things that maybe a lot of the folks in this room have seen many times over, and you're strong and you can handle it, but a lot of people can't handle it," Trump said to a veterans group in Northern Virginia. "And they see horror...
