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
OMG...think of the law suits...everytime a man says something he will get sued...these woman are looking for trouble and they should not be on the front lines...they got their noses in everything....and yes I am a woman.....
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.
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!
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."
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.
President Obama has found someone to blame for the Affordable Care Act´s rolling failures besides Republicans. ObamaCare is the government´s fault, not his. On Thursday, Mr. Obama dropped by American University for a heart to heart with Chris Matthews, and the MSNBC host wondered who in the executive branch is responsible for the botched health-care rollout. Mr. Obama listed a few impersonal culprits including "cynicism," "Washington gridlock" and "the management of government," but he then drifted into another classic. "The challenge, I think, that we have going forward is not so much my personal management style or particular issues around White House
Jobs Report: November´s numbers were stronger than expected, a phrase rarely uttered since this president took the economic reins. But while a bigger number is always better, one good month now and then won´t cut it. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the economy created 203,000 jobs in November, 196,000 of which were in the private sector. Now at 7%, the unemployment rate has fallen to the lowest level in five years. What´s more, unlike in previous months, the rate´s drop came from gains in employment, not from people dropping out of the labor force. The labor force participation rate actually
Executive Orders: A liberal constitutional scholar warns of the concentration of power not only in the hands of one branch of government but in a single man who ignores the Constitution and acts of Congress on a whim. As the story goes, Benjamin Franklin emerged from Independence Hall at the close of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia on Sept. 18, 1787, when a woman asked, "Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?" Franklin is said to have replied, "A republic, madam — if you can keep it." The Founders designed a system of checks and balances among three
Most presidents have politically troublesome relatives: Jimmy Carter had colorful brother Billy, Bill Clinton had brother Roger, and the George Bushes had son/brother Neil, who was involved in both the savings-and-loan scandal of the 1980s and Asian "sex romps" that emerged in a messy 2003 divorce. Obama has a passel of half-siblings, but his requisite nettlesome relative may turn out to be an uncle, Onyango (Omar) Obama. In August 2011, Uncle Omar was pulled over in Framingham, Mass., for driving under the influence. His arrest revealed both several outstanding orders for his deportation and his relationship to the
RUSH: Here is Wolf Blitzer. Last night on The Situation Room, Wolf Blitzer had in Fareed Zakaria GPS. I guess Fareed had his location device with him. He calls himself "Fareed Zakaria GPS." When you´re with him, I guess, you always know where you are. And they´re talking about the impact of the passing of Nelson Mandela, and this is classic. Listen to Wolf here... BLITZER: Is it overly naive to hope and pray that maybe the death of Nelson Mandela will inspire some of those world leaders out there right now to do the right thing, to recognize that bloodshed and
WASHINGTON — Without Nelson Mandela, there might never have been a President Obama. That is the strong impression conveyed from Mr. Obama, whose political and personal bonds to Mr. Mandela, the former South African president, transcended their single face-to-face meeting, which took place at a hotel here in 2005. It was the fight for racial justice in South Africa by Mr. Mandela that first inspired a young Barack Obama to public service, the American president recalled on Thursday evening after hearing that Mr. Mandela, the 95-year-old world icon, had died. Mr. Obama delivered his first public speech, in 1979, at
RUSH: We mentioned earlier that Obama didn´t know that Obama was living with his uncle, who happened to be an illegal alien at the time. Here´s Jay Carney. This is yesterday afternoon in Washington the White House at the daily briefing. Ed Henry, the Fox News White House correspondent, said, "The White House said that in 2011, that there was no record of Obama and his uncle, Omar Obama, ever meeting. Now the Boston Globe is being told by the White House -- and I assume you can elaborate here, Jay -- that, in fact, they not only met, but
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter.
