Women in all branches of the military soon will have unprecedented opportunities to serve on the front lines of the nation´s wars. Leon Panetta, in one of his last acts as President Obama´s defense secretary, is preparing to announce the policy change, which would open hundreds of thousands of front-line positions and potentially elite commando jobs after more than a decade at war, the Pentagon confirmed Wednesday. The groundbreaking move recommended by the Joint Chiefs of Staff overturns a 1994 rule banning women from being assigned to smaller ground combat units. Panetta´s decision gives the military services until

Øvomit is living his ultimate dream -- to totally and completely destroy the armed forces of the United States of America!!!

Even since he was just a young boy, listening to the rantings of every ultra-lie-beral adult that he looked up to, he has been taught how evil our military is. Now he gets to do what every lie-beral has only dreamed of, and actually get to completely destroy it.

Comrade Stalin is smiling from the very bowles of Hell right now!!!

This is another one of those head-fakes and end-around by 0bama. He gets his Defense Secretary, Leon Panetta, who´s a failure at it and leaving, to do something despicable. Like gays marrying in the Washington Cathedral. This is part of the price to negotiate budget money from GOP House and closing GITMO.

Rough days ahead just beginning. You saw it in the way we were "kind" in Congress today to PIAPS. Brace yourselves.

Im sick of fighting it. Good for them. Go to combat, get your pu++y shot off like our guys are getting their penises shot off. Get gang raped. Mentally scarred. You women, mostly lesbians are going to get what you ask for. I for one am glad the women in the military will be more than baby machines in the US navy and army. Go out and get your butt shot then come back and destroy the country. I give up.

Another step in the destruction of the American family unit. The feminist movement, IMHO, is probably the most destructive social development to afflict the USA.

A woman is uniquely created to raise and nurture children, and this critical role has been minimized and cheapened by the feminists and liberal organizations. Families have been devalued and ignored by the actions of, in this instance,Hussein Obama and Panetta.

Yes, by all means put them into combat. Let them kill. There is nothing like talking a life to say "we have arrived". But make them carry the full load during a prolonged, dynamic operation, and keep up.
I´m not saying by this that they can´t do it physically, because I imagine there are some that can. Nor am I saying they don´t have the guts for it, because I imagine there are some who do. But what I am saying is no breaks. If they want in combat they must be able do it all.

In case the picture hasn´t clarified for you, this is another salvo in the orchestrated campaign to destroy Western Culture.

There is no aspect of Western Culture that is not under concerted attack. Think about it. What is being ´redefined´ (destroyed).


- Traditional male and female occupations and roles
- Family
- Work ethic
- Religion

These are being replaced by what? (Hint: nothing - at present the goal is simply to tear down).

Once this work is accomplished, our own reign of terror will follow.

They will not like the world they are created, but they are blinded from the outcome, because a darker hand is conducting the orchestra.

As I said before this is just another attack by Democrats to destroy the greatest army on earth. First gays and now women. This is purposeful and destructive. I would not go into combat with women period! I don´t care what anyone thinks of this post I wouldn´t do it. It won´t be long before all the physical strength requirements will be revised downward to accomodate women. The result will be more combat deaths just to be pc. It´s discusting what the Democrats are doing to this country!

Well, historically politicians felt the visuals of young girls killed or raped in combat would be a too agregious horror for the citizenry to accept.Today´s morals... it´s fine!

Anyway, the MSM no longer reports or covers military deaths so who will care?

Many callers (mostly military, ex-military) to Mark Levin´s show tonight are objecting to this, for good reason. Ironically, earlier this afternoon, Valerie Jarrett tweeted, "If there´s one thing we should all agree on, it´s protecting women from violence. Congress needs to pass the Violence Against Women Act."

First of all there are no "front lines" anymore. The battlefield is 360 degrees and female soldiers have already been engaged in the fight.

Secondly, if women think they could be placed in a combat union it will cause a lot to get out or potential recruits to reconsider.

Years ago when women started working the flight line in the Air Force, & my husband was a shop chief, they had to build new latrines for the women. The pink & blue F-15 on the doors wasn´t working. My husband assigned one of the WAFS to paint the new potty. She came back & asked to have someone help her put up the scaffolding, so he tapped another WAF. They probably didn´t think it was funny, but I thought it was hilarious, when he came home & told me.

It´s company command level officers and senior NCO´s who will have to deal with all this once the liberals insert two or three females into each infantry fire team or squad, and the multitude of personal and professional problems that will arise are not going to be pretty or career enhancing.

You have to wonder just who is going to be humping the machine guns and all the ammo that the infantry needs to survive in sustained ground combat. I can tell you that in Korea all that stuff was big time heavy. I was a BAR man and the weapon itself weighed in at over 20 lbs, then add on about fifteen 20 round magazines of ammunition, with the mountains (yamas) being very steep and always only going in one direction, up! All that is a recipe for getting pregnant damn quick and bugging out ASAP.

The only reason that the liberal Democrats can institute such ludicrous policy changes is that these days only about 1% of the US population ever serves in the military, with the other 99% not having a clue as to the extreme hardships that marines and soldiers experience during sustained ground combat operations.

Climate change is damaging fish brains and
causing them to lose their survival instinct,
researchers warn

Fish are losing their survival instinct as the world´s oceans become more acidic because of climate change, researchers have claimed. The study confirms laboratory experiments showing that the behavior of reef fishes can be seriously affected by increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean. Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is absorbed into ocean waters, where it dissolves and lowers the pH of the water. The new study is the first to analyze the sensory impairment of fish from CO2 seeps, where pH is similar to what climate models forecast for surface waters by the turn of the century. ´These results verify our laboratory

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Washington -- A new video shows what looks like the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years. And the CIA and the Pentagon either didn´t know about it or couldn´t get a drone there in time to strike. U.S. officials won´t comment on that, but every frame of the video is now being analyzed by the United States. In the middle of the clip, the man known as al Qaeda´s crown prince, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, appears brazenly out in the open, greeting followers in Yemen.

Americans increasingly prefer
Democrats on healthcare: Reuters/Ipsos poll

WASHINGTON - Americans increasingly think Democrats have a better plan for healthcare than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after the White House announced that more people than expected had signed up for the "Obamacare" health plan. Nearly one-third of respondents in the online survey released on Tuesday said they prefer Democrats´ plan, policy or approach to healthcare, compared to just 18 percent for Republicans. This marks both an uptick in support for Democrats and a slide for Republicans since a similar poll in February. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius stepped down last week after overseeing the law´s

You can tell it´s an election year because so many noncrises are suddenly urgent priorities. Real median household income is still lower than it was in 2007, the smallest share of Americans is working since 1978, and the Russians are marching west, but Democrats are training fire on race, gender and the grievances of identity politics. "We have this congenital disease, which is in midterm elections we don´t vote at the same rates," President Obama said at a Houston fundraiser the other day.

CBO Dire Debt Warnings Show

Big Government: The Congressional Budget Office warns of a terrifying, unprecedented level of national debt in the coming decade. That fits nicely with Democrats´ objectives, but not with our nation´s founding principles. Andrew Jackson, who in 1835 succeeded in paying off the national debt, was famous for considering debt slavery. The current fiscal path the U.S. is on does indeed lead to slavery, but the slave masters of the future will be well-heeled politicians and federal bureaucrats, not plantation owners. The CBO´s new budget projections contain an eerie warning that we are on path from today´s already unfathomable $17.7 trillion in gross

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
