Obama Gutted Our Military Readiness
White House Dossier, by Keith Koffler

Original Article

Posted By:Tianne, 6/13/2017 7:37:54 PM

Barack Obama, who was responsible for the nation’s security, insisted that military spending be included in the “sequester” that automatically cut government spending. Testifying before Congress Monday evening, Secretary of Defense Mattis said “the damage has been severe” to our military as a result No enemy in the filed has done more to harm to combat readiness of our military than sequestration. We have only sustained our ability to meet American’s commitments abroad because our troops have stoically shouldred a much greater burden. Another gift by our leftist president to our fighting men and women, and our nation.

Yes, and it was no accident or error, it was done itentionally, with malice aforethought, as hard as he possibly could.

What Obama did to our military readiness was a repeat of the damage done by Jimmy Carter. When Reagan took over, only a quarter of our navy´s ships had enough ammunition to dare leave port for engagement with an enemy.

Let´s have a special counsel why the traitor did this to our military and to our country! While we are at it let´s add Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the Solyndra money waste....I can think of a couple more.
But we need a special counsel why a so called president who takes an oath but betrayed it with this underhanded ´sequestration´!!!!!

It´s not like our military thrashing about aimlessly in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere since 2001 hasn´t had its effects. It´s time to cut the fat from defense and get down to the purpose of the military - to kill people and break things to achieve victory. All else is superfluous.

I´m equally concerned about the leadership traits of those senior officers, particularly the flag officers, who made rank under Obama and his progressive-minded Sec-Defs.

#´s 5 and 6 are right on. Funding is only one of several factors in the readiness equation. Congress should thank Mattis for his frank assessment, and then get the flag officer super geniuses who ran the war effort up there to explain their malfeasance.

Manufacturing Hate for ´Made in America´

It´s "Made In America" week in Washington, D.C. You´d think this would be cause for bipartisan celebration. Who could be against highlighting the ingenuity, self-reliance and success of our nation´s homegrown entrepreneurs and manufacturers? Enter Bill Kristol. The entrenched Beltway pundit ridiculed a festive kickoff event on Monday at the White House, where President Donald Trump hosted companies from all 50 states to showcased their American-made products. "Maybe it´s just me," killjoy Kristol tweeted, "but I find something off-putting about turning the White House into an exhibition hall for American tchotchkes." (That´s the Yiddish word for useless trinkets). "Tchotchkes"? Tell

When Nabra Hassanen was killed by Darwin Martinez Torres, the media rushed to blame Islamophobia and Trump. The truth was simpler. It was the left’s own Illegalophilia that killed the Muslim teenager. Torres, an illegal alien from El Salvador, had no interest in Hassanen’s religion. He got into an altercation with her friends. Hassanen happened to be the one he caught when her friends left her behind. The murder happened in Fairfax County. Earlier this year, Fairfax County Chief of Police Ed Roessler had assured illegal aliens that they had nothing to worry about. The police were not going to do anything about

Can a Divided America Survive?
National Review, by Victor Davis Hanson    Original Article
Posted By: Tianne- 6/16/2017 9:36:47     Post Reply
The United States is currently the world’s oldest democracy. But America is no more immune from collapse than were some of history’s most stable and impressive consensual governments. Fifth-century Athens, Republican Rome, Renaissance Florence and Venice, and many of the elected governments of early 20th-century Western European states eventually destroyed themselves, went bankrupt, or were overrun by invaders. The United States is dividing as rarely before. Half the country, mostly liberal America, is concentrated in 146 of the nation’s more than 3,000 counties — in an area that collectively represents less than 10 percent of the U.S. land mass. The

James T. Hodgkinson, the shooter who opened fire on dozens of Republican congressmen and staffers at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday, had a list of Republican names in his pocket that was recovered by the FBI, The Daily Caller has learned. The news that the shooter had a list of names suggests the shooting was not a random outburst, but instead appears to be a premeditated political assassination. The list was written out on notepad paper and found in the shooter’s pocket, according to multiple sources with intimate knowledge of the situation, who spoke on condition of anonymity, citing

Congress passes long-sought
VA accountability bill

WASHINGTON — Congress approved long-sought legislation Tuesday to make firing employees easier for the Department of Veterans Affairs, part of an effort urged by President Donald Trump to fix a struggling agency serving millions of veterans. The House cleared the bill, 368-55, replacing an earlier version that Democrats had criticized as overly unfair to workers. The Senate passed the bipartisan legislation by voice vote last week. It will go to Trump later this week for his signature. The measure comes after a 2014 scandal at the Phoenix VA medical center, where some veterans died while waiting months for appointments.

Sessions, though a Southern gentleman, let him have it.

On Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee over allegations of collusion with Russia. It was an accusation he called a “detestable lie.” But in the face of those allegations, Sessions said he was more determined than ever to continue the mission he swore to uphold. “The innuendos, the leaks you can be sure will not intimidate me,” Sessions said. “In fact, these events have only strengthened my resolve to fulfill my duty to reduce crime, to support our federal, state, and local law enforcement officers who work on our streets every day.” The attorney general said his

After learning that an actor dressed to look just like his father gets brutally murdered on stage in a production of William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, Donald Trump, Jr. asked, “I wonder how much of this ´art´ is funded by taxpayers?" Well, thanks to some digging by Adam Andrzejewski, founder of the federal watchdog OpenTheBooks.com, we now know the answer: Data at OpenTheBooks.com shows that over $4.1 million in federal, state and city grants funded the New York Shakespeare Festival (NYSF) – the parent company to Public Theater and its production, Shakespeare in the Park – over the past three years.

Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan says President Trump’s primary problem as a leader is not that he is “inexperienced, crude, an outsider” but that he is “weak and sniveling” and “undermines himself almost daily by ignoring” traditional norms of American masculinity. “He throws himself, sobbing, on the body politic,” Noonan wrote in her column Thursday. “He’s a drama queen. It was once said, sarcastically, of George H.W. Bush that he reminded everyone of her first husband. Trump must remind people of their first wife.

A transgender ex-Navy surgeon says she will perform free gender-confirming surgery for the service members on her list who have been affected by Donald Trump´s new ban on trans people serving in the military. "If the commander-in-chief won´t take care of our veterans, our veterans will," Dr. Christine McGinn told CNN´s Michael Smerconish on Saturday. McGinn´s transition began in 2000, the same year she was named senior flight surgeon at the Willow Grove Naval Air Station, then the largest reserve base in the country. She was later nominated for flight surgeon of the year for the entire US Navy.

When last we checked in on the whole unmasking debacle, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes was hot on the trail of… somebody. But we weren’t entirely sure who. People from the Obama administration had seemingly been requesting unmasking of any number of Americans who were detected during surveillance operations, but mysteriously they seemed to be focused on ones associated with the Trump campaign. (I’m sure that was just one of those weird, random coincidences that permeate the universe. Nothing to see here.) One name which was frequently mentioned was former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, but when Allahpundit examined

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has had a long run. At 77 — and a multi-millionaire — the California Democrat could ride off into the sunset. But the former Speaker of the House said Sunday she´s not going anywhere. “Self-promotion is a terrible thing, but somebody has to do it,” Pelosi said on Fox News Sunday. “I am a master legislator. I know the budget to the nth degree.” There have been rumblings that Democrats want to replace its aging leadership before the 2018 mid-term elections.

Planned Parenthood says it´s sending superhero capes to the 51 senators who voted against the Senate´s ObamaCare repeal bill. [snip]The Senate GOP´s healthcare bill failed in a 49-51 vote late Thursday night, stifling Republicans´ hope of fulfilling their seven-year promise to repeal and replace ObamaCare. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) was the deciding vote on the bill, joining GOP Sens. Susan Collins (Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) in breaking with their party to oppose the bill. The bill would have defunded Planned Parenthood and repealed key parts of ObamaCare, getting rid of the individual and employer mandates in the healthcare plan.

Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz seemingly planned to pay cyber-probe suspect and IT aide Imran Awan even while he was living in Pakistan, if the FBI hadn’t stopped him from leaving the U.S. Monday. Public statements and congressional payroll records suggest she also appears to have known that his wife, a fellow IT staffer, left the country for good months ago — while she was also a criminal suspect. In all, six months of actions reveal a decision to continue paying a man who seemingly could not have been providing services to her, and who a mountain of evidence suggests

Police departments across the country are hitting back at President Donald Trump after a ´joke´ he made about roughing up suspects. During a speech he gave at Suffolk County Community College in New York, on Friday, the President made comments implying that he was in support of unnecessary police force. ´When you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just seen them thrown in, rough.

Her family members recorded the incident that has since gone viral, with her proclamation that “enforcing racist laws perpetuates institutional racism.” According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, Shane Parmely was driving through New Mexico when she was stopped at an immigration checkpoint–a common setup within 100 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border in southern border states.

On Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders read a letter from a Stockton, California boy named Dylan Harbin, whose nickname is "Pickle." Almost immediately, "Pickle Truthers" in the Trump-deranged media who couldn´t imagine that a 9 year-old could really have written such a letter embarked on an exhaustive boyhunt to verify Pickle´s existence. Many clearly operated on the assumption that Pickle was a figment of Trump´s fevered imagination, and instigated a detailed forensic analysis of the letter. That letter is seen below: (cc.
