Remembering Some Forgotten Lessons Of 9/11

In today’s “woke” political climate cops are now the enemies, politicians who hate those they aspire to govern are heroes and Muslims who despise America are media darlings. That means it is up to us to make sure the most important lessons of 9/11 have not been forgotten.

How the Pentagon Budget is a Threat to the Middle Class

Jonathan Askonas, The American Conservative

American military adventurism and massive spending undermines middle-class prosperity and makes the world less free and secure. A militarized approach to American foreign policy harms global freedom and security far more than it helps. In the Federalist Papers, even our most pro-federal spending founders held that a large standing army and a heavy, un-financed public debt burden were a danger to our republic’s health and security. Combining the two in the form of an ever-growing military budget is no victory. It is a threat to the future of the United States as we know it.

Marines Hoist White Flag To Social Justice Warriors

Our friend Elaine Donnelly, founder and president of the Center for Military Readiness, gave us the heads-up that Marine Corps Commandant General Robert B. Neller quietly announced on a Friday afternoon that for the first time in history, a platoon of fifty enlisted female recruits would be housed and trained alongside five male platoons.

Mattis Resignation Not To Be Feared

General James Mattis deserves our respect and appreciation for his many years of service to our country, but as Secretary of Defense his departure is not to be feared, and should be viewed as an opportunity to undo the remaining vestiges of Obama’s damaging influence on our military culture and to chart a new course in the war Islam has declared on the West.

Congressional Commission Demands More Wasteful Spending on War

A congressional commission found America is weak, isolated, beleaguered, and endangered. Military spending must be greatly increased or Washington will lose its ability to run the world. In which case a new Dark Age may envelop the earth.

9/11 Is Far From Over

As long as American politicians refuse to acknowledge that Islamism – not “terrorism” – is the ideology behind 9/11, and as long as our government refuses to battle that ideology, Islamists will continue to plot right here in America, and 9/11 will never be over.

President Trump Signs New Transgender Military Ban

President Trump has signed a new memorandum that bans most individuals suffering from gender dysphoria from US military service. The new directive adopts recommendations from Defense Secretary Jim Mattis that "transgender persons who require or have undergone gender transition" cannot serve.

The Folly Of Peace Without Victory In Afghanistan

The Taliban in Afghanistan and ISIS in Syria and Iraq, and its offshoots elsewhere around the world, do not desire any kind of “peace” except the peace of the Ummah – the peace of the worldwide reign of Islam.

It’s Up to Veterans to Reclaim Religious Liberty in Military Stolen by Obama

Secularists like former President Obama and atheists like Mikey Weinstein live to destroy this scared bond between God, Jesus, Chaplains and our men and women in uniform, and our history, and the damage they and their legions caused over the last eight long years in power was immense.

The Greatest Constitutional Crisis Of Trump's Presidency

The greatest constitutional crisis of Trump's presidency is the overreach of the federal judiciary, manifested first in the various lower court orders attempting to stymie the President's orders on immigration, and now, most seriously, by judges attempting to bypass the President to run the military and the Department of Defense from the federal bench.

CMR: Judges Should Not Run Our Military

Federal judges do not have the power to run the military, but they will continue to do so unless the Executive Branch vigorously takes up the fight. Unfortunately, LGBT activists and Obama holdovers at Defense and Justice are about to give away core constitutional powers of the Presidency to the judiciary.

Is The Pentagon Finally Listening To Conservatives On LGBT Issues?

Secretary James Mattis has quietly squelched (at least temporarily) the Obama plan to enlist transgender recruits into the United States military services. However, the question remains whether Mattis plans to kill Obama’s plan or to eventually let it become Pentagon policy.

Obama LGBT Policies at Pentagon, Other Agencies Running On Autopilot

“For 16 years we’ve been at war. When service members are not deployed overseas, they are preparing for war,” says retired Army Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin. “Not one minute of preparation time should be squandered on social experiments.”

Will Donald Trump Start the Second Korean War?

There is no magic solution to the North Korea Problem. But military action should be a last resort, reserved for preempting a direct and imminent threat that doesn’t presently exist. Washington must avoid triggering the Second Korean War.
