Gender Equality and the Navy SEALs

    Gender Equality and the Navy SEALs

    The push for gender equality centers around believing that offering the same opportunities to both sexes will result in the same outcome. We, most of us anyway, know this couldn’t be further from the truth. Different factors including skill, ability, education, etc. all affect the result, and that isn’t sexism, it’s just a fact. Beyond the questions surrounding “equality” in the regular workplace, the military, | Read More »

    Gov. Rick Perry Tells Bloggers About A Family Reunited With A Fallen Warrior’s Best Friend At #RSG15

    Gov. Rick Perry Tells Bloggers About A Family Reunited With A Fallen Warrior's Best Friend At #RSG15

    At the RedState Gathering, Gov. Rick Perry took time out to meet with a small group of bloggers and RedState front page contributors, where he talked casually with the group about a variety of topics both political and normal. I had the chance to speak with him, and we talked about various military topics. The Governor then told us a story that is both sad | Read More »

    I Have a Question

    I Have a Question

    I think the President of the United States owes the American public an answer now. I had been willing to give him the benefit of the doubt in his role as Command-in-Chief, but not now. In Dallas, TX, a health care worker who came into contact with the Ebola patient has contracted Ebola. The health care worker was a trained professional wearing protective clothing. But | Read More »

    Flashback 2007: Bush was Right about Iraq

    Flashback 2007: Bush was Right about Iraq

    The events in Iraq over the past few months have given us ample time to reflect on the consequences of Obama’s withdrawal from Iraq he undertook in 2011. However, as Megyn Kelly notes on her Fox News show, one man saw all of this coming: President George W. Bush. Though he was ridiculed and excoriated for insisting that America maintain a substantial military presence in the | Read More »

    The Isolationist Wing of the GOP

    As the debates and discussions continue to swirl around the war in Iraq, the War on Terror, Afghanistan, Iran, nuclear weapons, and other geopolitical topics, I hear a growing drumbeat within the Republican Party of isolationism. It seems to be coming from those of the libertarian bent. I find that in most instances, I agree with my libertarian brothers and sisters, but in this area, | Read More »

    Impeachment and Coups

    Impeachment and Coups

    Barack Obama is not a stupid man. One does not win the Presidency twice by being stupid. Looking at all of his foreign policy and national security blunders and pronouncements, I think there is only one rationale way to explain his foreign and national security policy without relying on him being stupid. Barack Obama has decided the best way to make the world a safer | Read More »

    Let’s get out of Afghanistan!

    I frankly wonder why the deadline has been pushed back to the end of the year. Now unlike in Iraq, it was initially merited to go into Afghanistan since they were harboring Al Qaeda. But 12 years is TOO long. Longer than WWI and WWII COMBINED and longer than Vietnam. And what have we to show for it? A country that’s still very divided into | Read More »

    Hagel, Defense, And You!

    Chuck Hagel has unveiled a new plan for the Defense Department to reduce costs by downsizing and reshaping the military into something more efficient. At the very moment he mentioned downsizing, something interesting happened. All of his words, to most conservatives, became the noise made by teachers in the Charlie Brown cartoons. And, while cuts to the military are definitely a bad idea, there is | Read More »

    Wanted: manly virtue

    Rich Cromwell writes a lively discussion of our culture’s attempts to deal with manly virtue at The Federalist, inspired by a hilariously funny advertisement that shows a guy desperately trying to recapture his masculinity after using a feminine product in the shower: Cromwell goes on a tour of leftist culture’s inability to define what “masculinity” means, especially since that culture is so nervous about endorsing | Read More »

    Dyslexic Priorities in Budget Deal

    We already know that Ryan-Murray budget bill raises taxes and spending to fund Obamacare and the TSA.  Tonight we learn that this deal contains a provision which allows the Senate to pass tax increases with just 51 votes.  But there is another problem with the bill that has been overlooked.  The priorities implicit in the smorgasbord of notional spending offsets are completely dyslexic. Most of | Read More »

    Is a military coup even possible?

    “Duty, Honor, Country. Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be.” In today’s world of counting coup via website views, click-trolling using inflammatory headlines can be found everywhere. Sound bites from politicians, celebrities, and public figures are routinely taken out of context to produce accurate verbiage but misleading intent. Websites, who will remain nameless, | Read More »

    “So help me God” The Latest Target of Anti-Christian Proselytizing in the Military

    The president of the deceptively named Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), Mikey Weinstein, is at it again, taking his anti-Christian crusade once more to the U.S. Military. A week ago, he wrote a letter to the Air Force Academy demanding that the words “so help me God” be stricken from the cadet Honor Code.

    This is nothing more than an ongoing, calculated effort to proselytize atheism and anti-Christian propaganda in the military at the expense of religious freedom.
