    The U.S. Department of Defense is proposing to pay for President Donald Trump’s much-debated border wall by shifting funds away from projects that include $1.2 billion for schools, childcare centers and other facilities for military children, according to a list it has provided to lawmakers. The Pentagon gave Congress a list on Monday that included $12.8 billion of construction projects for which it said funds could be redirected. Around 10 percent of the list relates to educational establishments and includes school buildings for the children of service members in places like Germany, Japan, Kentucky and Puerto Rico. The move comes...

    The Washington Times ^ | March 18, 2019 | Stephen Dinan
    The Pentagon has a list of $6.8 billion worth of construction projects it could choose to take money from in order to build President Trump’s border wall, according to a list belatedly provided to Congress on Monday. But officials have yet to even decide how much Defense Department money they’ll use toward the wall, and so they haven’t decided which projects on the target list would actually be affected.

    Democratic White House hopeful Cory Booker said Sunday night he would reverse President Donald Trump’s ban on transgender individuals serving in the military if elected president. Speaking to a crowd of more than 300 voters in Davenport, the New Jersey senator answered a question posed by a woman who identified herself as transgender about what he would do to protect LGBTQ rights as president. “When I am president of the United States, right away I will end this ridiculous, insulting, un-American ban on transgender Americans serving in the military,” he said to cheers from the crowd.

            GOD'S PERFECTION In Brooklyn, New York, Chush is a school that caters to learning disabled children. Some children remain in Chush for their entire school career, while others can be main-streamed into conventional schools. At a Chush fund-raising dinner, the father of a Chush child delivered a speech that would never be forgotten by all who attended. After extolling the school and its dedicated staff, he cried out, "Where is the perfection in my son Shaya? Everything God does is done with perfection. But my child cannot understand things as other children do. My child...

    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf. – George Orwell I confess, I’ve been a little upset ever since I saw the picture of the sheep comforting the sheepdog that had been injured by a wolf threatening his flock. I felt a little better after seeing the collars the dogs wear for protection against wolf attacks but it was still unsettling, thinking about the price our protectors pay. And I thought, what if we all joined with the sheepdog in fighting our foe? Wouldn’t the wolf...

    The Pentagon announced Tuesday night that a directive has been signed to implement President Trump's policy barring most transgender people from serving in the military. Under the policy, transgender people would have to serve in the gender they were assigned at birth. Service secretaries would be allowed to grant waivers on a case-by-case basis. The policy will go into effective in 30 days, according to the memo signed by acting Deputy Defense Secretary David Norquist. The directive is being issued after a court last week lifted the last of the orders preventing the transgender military policy from taking effect. A...

    (CNSNews.com) - Sen. Cory Booker sent out a Tweet on Saturday night that transgenders who serve in the U.S. military are heroes and that President Donald Trump’s policy of banning transgenders from the military is a national security threat. Booker’s Tweet was linked to a Tweet by the Human Rights Campaign that featured a video of transgender former service members speaking about their experiences in the military. “Transgender servicemembers are heroes, just like all other servicemembers risking their lives for their country,” Booker said in his Tweet. “President Trump’s effort to ban them doesn’t just fly in the face of...
  • Really Bad African Paratroops Demonstrate Every Jump Ramp Error in One Jump

    This video appeared on social media early this week from the Flintlock 2019 military exercise in the Sahel region of Africa. Whoever the unit is in the video- and no one is giving them credit (or blame…), they demonstrate about every aircraft exit mistake a static line parachutist can make short of actually forgetting to hook up their static line. The video has disappeared from social media, but we managed to make a video of the video before it disappeared. ***** Jumper nine defies description. He apparently deduces that using his butt as a kind of braking device upon exit...
