The Pentagon can easily drop its
ban on transgender troops, study finds

Washington Post, by Dan Lamothe

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 8/25/2014 5:48:33 PM

The Defense Department repealed its controversial “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy banning gay people from openly serving in the military three years ago in September. Some senior officers questioned the decision, fearing it could cost lives, but Pentagon officials said the repeal has not hurt military readiness or cohesion. Civil rights advocates, including some retired military officers, are now pressing for another change. The armed forces continue to enforce a ban on transgender military service, months after Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said in May that he was open to a review that would lift it.

Comments:
You wonder why unfortunately at this crISIS time, our Pentagon is not ready to face combat? because they waste their precious time, which should be for training for the war that is coming with homosexual issues like this which are divisive, regardless of what the WaPoo says. Obviously, dress uniforms will be optional as to which one to wear.

I personally know of three men and one woman -- all very patriotic and intelligent young people -- that planned to have careers with the military, but decided to get out when all the homosexual stuff hit the fan.

They told me that most of their cohorts were planning to do the same.

With the world in the horrible shape that it is, turning our military into a social experiment is pretty darn stupid. But what else would you expect from President Mom Jeans -- closeted homosexual himself...

How can it be expected that a person, not true to him- or herself, could be true to an oath to the nation?

Imagine destroying both Hitler´s and Tojo´s armies with a bunch of soldiers who couldn´t decide if today´s a good day for a jockstrap or a bra.
I´m sorry, this is a bridge W-A-Y too far. This is getting too wacky for an old Vietnam-era vet like myself.

Wait until the next Republican President has to deal with the horrific morale and discipline problems eminating from this immoral travesty? They´re turning our military into a psychoward of misfits and insane idiots who can only think about ONE thing... and it ain´t "killing" the enemy.

Iraq: Militants Kill Lawyer
Who Aided Women’s Rights

An Iraqi lawyer known for her work promoting women’s rights has been killed by Islamic State fighters, the head of the United Nations human rights office said Thursday. The lawyer, Sameera Salih Ali al-Nuaimy, was seized from her home last week and tortured before a masked firing squad executed her in public on Monday, Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, the United Nations human rights commissioner, said in a statement. On her Facebook page, Ms. Nuaimy had condemned the Islamic State’s “barbaric” destruction of mosques and shrines in Mosul, Iraq. She was convicted of apostasy by a “so-called court,” Mr. Zeid said,

The State Department has begun slowly pulling embassy personnel out of Yemen to protect them from deteriorating security conditions as a Shiite militia has taken control of parts of the country’s capital. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Thursday that the department had ordered a temporary personnel reduction at the U.S. Embassy in Sana’a “out of an abundance of caution and in response to recent political developments and the changing, unpredictable security situation in Yemen.” A senior U.S. official told The Washington Times that turmoil between Yemeni government and Houthi tribesmen,

Seoul Mayor Park Won-soon, whom polls suggest will someday become South Korea’s president, says the Obama administration has been too passive in dealing with North Korea, leaving the region without a clear strategy for steering the pariah nation away from making nuclear weapons. “I believe that maybe the U.S. can take a more proactive stance and help the North walk down the path of peace, walk down the path of openness,” says Mr. Park, an outspoken human rights lawyer serving his second term as mayor of the South Korean capital. “We need some kind of strategy to help them get

Former New York Mayor MichaelR. Bloomberg’s gun control group announced a round of candidate endorsements this week, but his plan to pour $50 million into gun control efforts appears to be struggling to find campaigns to back in nationally watched races. Everytown for Gun Safety released its inaugural endorsement list and named candidates from 28 states: 17 U.S. Senate candidates, 61 candidates for the U.S. House and 32 candidates for state offices. The group also endorsed several Republican candidates for the U.S. House in safe GOP districts and Sen. Susan M. Collins of Maine, who also is expected to win

Eric Holder and the Lonely President

Barack Obama started worrying about the loneliness of the presidency even before he was elected in 2008. In the years since, it has been a recurring theme as he battled the isolation of the office and struggled to liberate "the bear" from his cage. Now, with the departure of one of the few personal friends he named to his Cabinet, the president may find himself even further isolated as he completes his sixth year in office. Eric Holder, who is stepping down as attorney general, has been more than just an appointee. There was never any question that Obama was the boss. But Holder always was able to speak up to the president;

US officials unclear on threat posed
by obscure al-Qaida cell in Syria
Guardian [UK], by Spencer Ackerman    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/25/2014 4:29:39 PM     Post Reply
Three days after the United States unexpectedly launched air strikes against an al-Qaida cell in Syria, officials are offering varied and conflicting explanations on the precise nature of the threat posed by the group. Hours after Tomahawk missiles slammed into buildings near Aleppo believed to be used by Khorasan, an obscure group said to be focused on exporting terrorism from Syria, the US military described it as involved in “imminent attack plotting” against western targets. Yet it is unclear what Khorasan was planning, how far that planning advanced, and whether the US itself was a target. Nor is the US confident as yet that it has

The simple way to avoid credit

During the recession, people saw their credit card limits slashed as their interest rates pushed higher. Now that the economy is stronger, card issuers are more willing to give customers a break or a better deal– if only they would ask. About 90 percent of credit cardholders who asked issuers to forgive late payment fees had their requests granted, according to a new survey by CreditCards.com. About two-thirds of people who asked for a lower interest rate were approved. “It can’t hurt to ask,” says Matt Schulz, a senior industry analyst for CreditCards.com. Despite those high success rates, the report found that people hardly ever

The FBI director criticized Apple and Google Thursday for adopting new policies that will block police from accessing private data on phones and tablet computers. An FBI spokesman confirmed that Director James Comey told reporters he is "very concerned" that the new features could thwart critical police investigations. The bureau has contacted both companies to learn more, the spokesman said. Last week, Apple announced that its new operating system will make it impossible for the company to unlock iPhones and iPads. Even if the police obtain a warrant, Apple would be unable to turn over information such as photos and

IAEA rejects Arab bid to

Member states of the International Atomic Energy Agency rejected on Thursday an Arab resolution criticizing Israel over its assumed atomic arsenal, in a diplomatic victory for Western states that opposed the initiative. Arab states had submitted the non-binding resolution – which called on Israel to join a global anti-nuclear weapons pact – to the annual meeting of the 162-nation UN nuclear agency, in part to signal their frustration at the lack of progress to move towards a Middle East free of nuclear weapons. The United States and its allies argued that the resolution, if adopted, would be counterproductive. Fifty-eight countries

An earthquake registering a preliminary 6.2 magnitude was centered 81 miles northwest of Anchorage, Alaska, Thursday morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. "It was kind of a long one," Anchorage Police spokeswoman Jennifer Castro told CNN. At this point we have no major reports of damage or injuries." The USGS detected the earthquake at 9:51 a.m. local time with an epicenter in a remote area of southern Alaska, according to the initial report. "Wow. Big quake. At least it felt big on the 6th floor of the #Anchorage courthouse," Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reporter Casey Grove tweeted.

   

 



 
The who, how, when and
if of replacing Eric Holder
Washington Post, by Aaron Blake    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/25/2014 3:17:20 PM     Post Reply
Eric Holder is resigning as attorney general. Now all official Washington cares about is how, when, and if his as-yet-unnamed successor will be confirmed. Answering that question is very complex -- since it involves Congress and the coming election, among other factors. (Snip) Barring confirmation hearings in the lame-duck session of Congress (or earlier), which seems unlikely, Republicans would be in a much stronger position when it comes to President Obama´s options to replace Holder. It would be the first time that a Republican-controlled Senate would be tasked with confirming or rejecting one of Obama´s Cabinet

Three retired firefighters who worked at ground zero died on the same day from cancer, an illness that many fear might be connected to toxic World Trade Center dust released on Sept. 11, fire officials said Thursday. Lt. Howard Bischoff, 58, and firefighters Robert Leaver, 56, and Daniel Heglund, 58, died within hours of one another Monday. Their deaths are "a painful reminder that 13 years later we continue to pay a terrible price for the department´s heroic efforts," Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said in a statement.

President Barack Obama returned a formal military salute with a one-handed coffee-cup salute Tuesday, only a few hours after he dispatched the nation’s military on their attack mission into northern Syria. White House aides posted the sloppy salute video on Instagram. The commander in chief offered the coffee-cup salute when he disembarked from his U.S. Marine Corps helicopter in New York, as he made his way to the United Nations General Assembly. “President Obama just landed in New York for #UNGA2014,” says the caption. The salute is “the most important of all military courtesies,” says a manual for Marine Corps officer candidates. “In some situations,

Eric Holder Jr., the nation´s first black U.S. attorney general, is preparing to announce his resignation Thursday after a tumultuous tenure marked by civil rights advances, national security threats, reforms to the criminal justice system and five and a half years of fights with Republicans in Congress. Two sources familiar with the decision tell NPR that Holder, 63, intends to leave the Justice Department as soon as his successor is confirmed, a process that could run through 2014 and even into next year. A former U.S. government official says Holder has been increasingly "adamant" about his desire to leave soon

President Obama on Wednesday delivered a speech at the United Nations filled with his usual soaring rhetoric of global collectivism and the importance of “international norms.” But the president also displayed a shocking naivete about global affairs, religion, Islam — a Pollyannaish interpretation on the state of the world and America’s role in it. Although Mr. Obama won a Nobel Peace Prize just eight months into office, the president made his annual trip to the ineffectual world council to deliver a call to war. “Ladies and gentlemen, we come together at a crossroads between war and peace,

The View is a television show that, apparently, a lot of women watch. Currently, Rosie O’Donnell, who was once famous for something–I have no idea what–is one of the hosts. Still, many women watch. So this video of The View’s women grappling with the Obama administration’s response to ISIS terrorism is noteworthy. I want to highlight O’Donnell’s contribution near the end: We are bombing Syria because Syria has so much oil, so there is a “financial incentive.” What the Hell is this supposed to mean? Why are liberals obsessed with oil? And what, exactly, is the “financial incentive?” Here is the

Normally, no one would care that in a recent Atlantic essay — “Why I Hope to Die at 75” — 57-year-old Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel argued that living to be 75 years old was long enough for anyone. After 75, Emanuel suggests, “We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic.” But Emanuel is no garden-variety crackpot. Nor is he a wannabe science-fiction writer dreaming of a centrally planned planet of robust youthful humanoids. Unfortunately, he was one of the chief architects of the troubled Affordable Care Act and a key medical advisor to the Obama

If there is one thing Chelsea Clinton is most worried about, it may be that her soon-to-be child will grow up in a world without elephants. Standing alongside her mother, Hillary Clinton, at the Clinton Global Initiative this afternoon, the very-pregnant former first daughter warned the plight of African elephants, killed for their ivory tusks, is an “existential” one, and said that if the current poaching rates continue, elephants could be few and far between within the next decade. If so, this means Chelsea Clinton’s favorite animal could be something her child would never know. “The child Marc and I

The Los Angeles City Council voted Wednesday to raise the minimum wage for hotel workers to $15.37, one of the highest wage requirements in the country. Hotel workers in yellow shirts packed City Hall as the council voted 12 to 3 to approve the measure, which will go into effect for hotels with at least 300 rooms beginning in July. Hotels with 150 rooms or more will have to meet the wage requirement a year later. “Hotel workers are here because they want family-supporting wages,” said Maria Elena Durazo, executive secretary-treasurer of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO, during the public
