Since she is a Marine and in a significant position of responsibility, I would guess she is qualified. I would also hazard that she has larger ´stones´ than most liberal democrats.

That didn´t take long. The first poster asks if she´s qualified, because...

hmmm, let´s think about this, must be some reason he asked that question...

nope, can´t understand why that would pop into his head.

Exactly, #4, affirmative action is an abomination. It does nothing but put unqualified minorities in position to fail and make people question the qualifications of those who make it on their own merit. With Trump appointing her her and Mattis approving, Colonel Mahlock is probably the latter case, but how can we know for sure?

Blacks are always given a pass no matter what. We´ll never know if she´s good or not. Maybe she´s a good Marine, maybe not, but the suspicion remains that she´s affirmative action all the way.

#8, exactly right.

A good friend was a very skilled military aviator, was voted top east coast pilot on her type aircraft by her peers.

She was really angry at affirmative action in the airlines because whenever she flew with a new pilot (they don´t pair up on any sort of a permenant basis, just whoever shows up on that assignment) she knew that he assumed that she was NOT there because she was a good pilot but because she sits down to pee. She had to prove herself every single flight.

Her comment was that AA steals the aura of accomplishment from those that it promotes unfairly, and taints those who got there by pure merit exactly the same way.

Sadly, it will be hard to know if this black woman is there because she is good and skilled, or because she is black or because she is a woman. Stolen sense of self worth.

U.S. Imported More than 10M Immigrants

Breitbart Big Government, by John Binder    Original Article

The United States has imported more than 10 million legal immigrants in the last ten years, federal data circulated by the White House reveals. Since 2008, the U.S. has admitted and permanently resettled close to 10.8 million legal immigrants, a foreign population that exceeds the entire population of New York City, New York — where more than 8 million residents live. Of those roughly 10.8 million legal immigrants resettled across the U.S., the majority derives from the process known as “chain migration,” where newly naturalized citizens are allowed to bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the country.

President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said special counsel Robert Mueller intends to end his investigation into whether Trump obstructed the Russia investigation by Sept. 1, The New York Times reported. Mueller shared his timeline for the investigation a couple of weeks ago during negotiations over whether the president would be willing to be interviewed by Mueller’s team, Giuliani told the Times in an interview. According to the Times, Giuliani’s comments appeared to be a way for him to publicly pressure Mueller as the two sides negotiate a potential interview.

Our digital addictions are killing our kids

In August 2016, I wrote an editorial for The Post about “digital heroin,” where I compared the addictive potential of screens — video games, social media, smart phones — to that of a drug like heroin. The article hit a nerve. Six million views later, the term “digital heroin” has entered the popular culture. As someone who has worked on the front lines of treating the opioid epidemic, I wasn’t trying to make light of heroin and the scourge that kills 115 people a day. But I was trying to raise awareness that kids and adults hooked on their devices

Everybody makes typos. Even professional writers who toil away at their keyboards every day make them. To make a typo is in fact human, and newsflash to liberals: President Donald Trump is a human! And as a human, he sometimes makes typos like this: (Tweet) Posted Saturday evening, the tweet by the president celebrated the return of first lady Melania Trump to the White House. She was recently hospitalized for a reportedly “benign” kidney condition and underwent surgery Monday. And wouldn’t you know it, the president was apparently so thrilled by her return Saturday that he accidentally misspelled her name

On Wednesday afternoon, President Donald Trump hosted a "California sanctuary state roundtable" discussion at the White House. Infamously, he referred to violent MS-13 gang members as "animals." Americans wouldn´t get that impression from reading Thursday´s headlines, however. "Trump Calls Some Unauthorized Immigrants ‘Animals’ in Rant," screamed The New York Times´s Julie Hirschfeld Davis.

In the aftermath of the Kanye West dust-up, my heart goes out to the white people who control the Democratic Party. My pity stems from the hip-hop megastar´s November announcement to his packed concert audience that he did not vote in the presidential election but if he had, he would have voted for Donald Trump. Then, on April 21, West took to his Twitter account, which has 28 million followers, to announce, "I love the way Candace Owens thinks."

On the eve of the release of the IG report, President Trump can be seen in relief against the backdrop of a year and a half of events. So can his enemies. The elite’s embrace of globalism has choked off recognition of ordinary Americans—those without a recognized grievance—in favor of the outer of the concentric circles of human relations: aliens and foreigners. Trump’s presidency—particularly in its rebellion against globalism—has brought distributive justice for these forgotten Americans and apoplexy to the elites. Magnanimity is the Aristotelean word ascribed to the habit of seeking a role in society—an office—which may

Donald Trump has stayed uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter without posting a single tweet about the royal wedding. The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders. Prominent figures who made the cut included Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney and the Beckhams. Other A-listers including Idris

What does it mean to be sixth in the line of royal succession to an office that depends solely and exclusively on who your father is?

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton acknowledged Friday that Democratic candidates around the country still face basic questions about what they stand for and which policies their party supports. Speaking at a Democrat Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., Clinton urged party leaders to return to the basics and lay out the party’s values for voters. Fair wages, the “absolute promise of universal health care,” public school funding, gun safety reform and equal pay were at the top of the former first lady’s agenda items that she thought should stay central to the Democratic Party’s platform.

WASHINGTON — President Trump accused the F.B.I. on Friday, without evidence, of sending a spy to secretly infiltrate his 2016 campaign “for political purposes” even before the bureau had any inkling of the “phony Russia hoax.” In fact, F.B.I. agents sent an informant to talk to two campaign advisers only after they received evidence that the pair had suspicious contacts linked to Russia during the campaign. The informant, an American academic who teaches in Britain, made contact late that summer with one campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, according to people familiar with the matter. He also met repeatedly in the

Former Education Secretary Arne Duncan said parents should pull their children out of school until Congress passes gun control legislation. "What if no children went to school until gun laws changed to keep them safe?" Duncan tweeted Saturday. Duncan, who served as secretary under President Obama, called the step "tragically necessary." "My family is all in if we can do this at scale. Parents, will you please join us?" he said. Duncan´s plea comes one day after 10 people were killed in a mass shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas.

A Cambridge professor with deep ties to American and British intelligence has been outed as an agent who snooped on the Trump presidential campaign for the FBI. Multiple media outlets have named Stefan Halper, 73, as the secret informant who met with Trump campaign advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos starting in the summer of 2016. The American-born academic previously served in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations. The revelation, stemming from recent reports in which FBI sources admitted sending an agent to snoop on the Trump camp, heightens suspicions that the FBI was seeking to entrap
