  • An Open Letter to Admiral William McRaven

    US Defense Watch ^ | August 17, 2018 | Ray Starmann
    Dear Admiral McRaven: Your OPED yesterday, which was picked up by every liberal media outlet in the country, was sadly indicative of the current state of mind of many of our nation’s recently retired and active duty senior military leaders. You stated that former CIA director John Brennan, “is one of the finest public servants I have ever known. Few Americans have done more to protect this country than John. He is a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question, except by those who don’t know him.” The man whom you describe as being...
  • DC mayor taunts Trump after cancellation of military parade

    CNN Politics ^ | August 17, 2018 | Veronica Stracqualursi and Abby Phillip
    President Donald Trump sought to cast blame Friday for the cancellation of his planned military parade on Washington city council officials, saying they had inflated the cost. Soon after the President tweeted, Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser claimed she "got thru" to Trump about costs for the parade, which at one point was calculated to run about $12 million but more recent estimates said could run as high as $92 million by the time Trump canceled the event. "The local politicians who run Washington, D.C. (poorly) know a windfall when they see it. When asked to give us a price for...
  • Special Report: Children poisoned by lead on U.S. Army bases as hazards ignored

    [snip]The Army requires http://www.campbell.army.mil/Installation/Environmental_Handbook/Documents/LBPManagementtPlan_DEC2014.pdf abatement when certified testing identifies deteriorating lead paint in base homes. Yet it also "discourages" this type of lead-paint inspection https://phc.amedd.army.mil/topics/workplacehealth/ih/Pages/Lead.aspx, in part because lead abatement can be costly. These homes put military kids at risk. Reuters obtained medical data from the Army showing that at least 31 small children tested high for lead at a Fort Benning hospital over a recent six-year period. All tested above the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's threshold for elevated lead levels – 5 micrograms per deciliter of blood. Any child who tests high warrants a public health...

    United Press International ^ | August 16, 2018 | Wooyoung Lee
    South Korean troops will be free of cleaning and maintenance work, such as getting rid of overgrown grass and removing snow, as the defense ministry announced Thursday it will outsource the work to private contractors. The ministry said it will start having contractors take care of weeding and cleaning at major units in the tense border areas next year and expand it to rearguard and supporting units from 2021. In addition to tough drills and training, South Korean soldiers are assigned to do weeding and remove snow at their units and surrounding areas. The ministry said the work often causes...
  • This is why we need a 'Space Force'

    American Thinker ^ | 08/16/2018 | Rick Moran
    A mysterious Russian satellite has exhibited "very abnormal behavior" in its orbit, leading the Pentagon to worry that it may be some kind of weapon. Weapons are banned from outer space by treaty, but it's believed that there are ways to weaponize lasers and electronic jamming devices to disable or destroy satellites.  China is believed to already have an advanced anti-satellite capability, with the U.S. nearly on par with the Chinese and Russia trailing in the race to develop this vital technology. The media largely dismissed Trump's plan to develop a Space Force and make it a separate branch of the armed...

    On Sunday, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation made an official demand to Defense Secretary James N. Mattis to “immediately and comprehensively” investigate Air Force Brig. Gen. E. John Teichert. At issue is Teichert’s website, called “Prayer at Lunchtime for the United States,” in which the commander says he encourages “Bible-believing Americans to take time to specifically pray for our nation at lunchtime every day.” Teichert commands the 412th Test Wing and is also the installation commander, according to the Edwards website. On his religious website, Teichert goes only by “John,” and writes that he is an active duty brigadier general...

    The New York Times ^ | 13 Aug 2018 | Richard C. Paddock
    The American soldiers were eating breakfast in Balangiga’s town square when Filipino villagers, including men disguised in dresses, attacked them with bolo knives. Forty-eight Americans died. The year was 1901 and for the United States Army, the massacre in the central Philippines was the worst since Custer and his troops were slaughtered at the Battle of Little Bighorn, 25 years earlier. In retaliation, the United States commander ordered his forces to kill every male older than 10 and turn the central Philippines island of Samar into a “howling wilderness.” American troops killed civilians, burned houses and destroyed food supplies. They...

    Out of Control: The incoming president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador — a.k.a. AMLO — will have his hands full when he formally takes office in December as more of his country is besieged with cartel violence. As Breitbart News reports, the violence is getting so bad that Mexico is deploying hundreds of security forces and military elements to once-peaceful resort beaches: More than 200 federal and state police personnel supported by elements of the Mexican army were deployed to once tourist-friendly Guaymas amid escalating violence and threats of a cartel war...

          GOLDEN MOMENTS Once upon a time, there was a little boy from "the wrong side of the tracks" who grew up admiring a beautiful house high on the hill overlooking his town. Fortunately, he never lacked for any of the necessities of life, but he hated being "poor." He noticed that people treated him differently, and it pained him to see his parents work so hard just to make ends meet. It just didn't seem right that some should be so favored and others should have so little. But his parents has instilled some rather clear...

    The idea that the U.S. is going to expand its might beyond the globe is a problem for people who believe we live on a disc. President Donald Trump wants a Space Force to expand U.S. military power beyond the globe. That’s a problem for flat earthers who incorrectly believe the world is a flat disc floating through space. On Thursday, Vice President Mike Pence announced plans to launch “Space Force,” a sixth branch of the U.S. military by 2020. The proposed branch would be reserved specifically for outer space operations. Military experts say the Air Force currently carries out...
