The Armed Forces need 8,200 recruits to
fill gaps and are so understaffed that
operations can’t be carried out without
cancelling leave or training

The Armed Forces have a shortfall of 8,200 regular troops in the ‘largest gap in a decade’, Whitehall’s spending watchdog says. The military was so understaffed in critical areas such as intelligence that operations could not be carried out without cancelling leave or training. There was a 26 per cent shortfall in intelligence analysts last year, according to the National Audit Office (NAO) – even as the Ministry of Defence tries to bolster its cyber capabilities. The report said this was because of increasing demand for analysts and difficulties persuading troops to stay in the military. It comes as alarm grows over

Comments:
Instead of funding its military, the UK spends scarce resources on the refugees they import from hostile nations, and giving them free medical care, housing, and the rest. And why not? They know the USA is there to bail them out, using our own blood and treasure.

Britain hasn´t had a credible military, Army, Air Force or Navy for several decades, at least.

The UK has been at war for as long as the US has. It is hard to maintain a state of constant war.

When I was in high school, recruiters would come in and give presentations about careers in the armed forces. I don´t suppose that is allowed now.

Example, here in the U.S. total military budget for 2017, 886 billion. Total spent on welfare by federal and state investment: 1.23 trillion (and that figure is just a calculation- the Leftist media are not interested in that number and the feds and the states are so reluctant to be truthful about it they muddle it up a bit- but I think it´s pretty darned close to the actual numbers, if not overly conservative).

Now, the question should be asked, how long before the US forces are as diminished as the UK forces are?

Years ago I attended a private law school in CA and the military (all four branches), FBI and CIA wanted to recruit grads that had passed the CA State Bar with lucrative incentives, and the university refused them to recruit on campus. I was incensed as the university was curtailing our opportunities for post-grad employment.

Jennifer, who was almost raped by one of their attackers, suffered a broken nose in the ordeal and had to undergo emergency surgery in a US hospital days later. Horrifying photos show them sitting at a police station in their blood-soaked clothes soon after they managed to escape.

Minnesota Republicans said Tuesday they want to crack down on subsidized child care providers that commit fraud, following a television news report that suggested illegally obtained funds may be going overseas to finance terrorist groups.

Publix is supporting Adam Putnam´s run for

The Florida supermarket giant Publix has given more money to Adam Putnam’s gubernatorial bid than any other candidate since at least 1995 and likely for the entirety of the company’s history. Publix, the heirs to the company’s founder and its current and former leaders have given Putnam $670,000 in the last three years — or enough money to buy 74,527 chicken tender subs. No other Florida candidate has ever come close to that kind of subsidy from Florida’s largest Fortune 500 company. Its most recent contribution, a $100,000 donation on April 30, was the largest, too, according to the latest campaign finance

Vatican City — Pope Francis says he has thought about when it might be time to “take leave” of his flock. Francis made the comment during his morning homily Tuesday; the Vatican didn’t release the full text. Francis was reflecting on St. Paul discerning when to leave his flock in the care of others, a decision Francis said all bishops must make. He said: “When I read this, I think about myself, because I’m a bishop and I’ll have to take my leave.” Francis has said retired Pope Benedict XVI “opened a door” to future popes by resigning.

Confessed mass shooter Nikolas Cruz had no criminal record despite dozens of disciplinary infractions, but there was one case in which Broward County school administrators were obligated to send him before a judge — and didn’t do it. After trashing a middle-school bathroom in 2013, Mr. Cruz received a three-day referral to a newly created diversion program called Promise designed to help kids who had committed misdemeanors avoid arrest and stay out of the “school-to-prison pipeline.” He didn’t show. At that point, school policy dictated that he should have been hauled before Judge Elijah Williams of the Broward County Delinquency Division,

Under John Brennan, the CIA operated as an opposition research outfit for the Hillary Clinton campaign. It appears from leaked news stories in the British press that Brennan’s oafish spying on Trump began around April 2016, right after Trump’s biggest primary victories. As it became urgently clear to Brennan that Trump was going to face off against Hillary, Brennan turned to “intelligence partners” in Europe for dirt on Trump. But they didn’t have any, save some pretty skimpy material on “contacts” between Trump campaign officials and Russians. Whatever Brennan collected was so insubstantial that Robert Mueller

Democrats, the mainstream media, and left-wing reporters are twisting President Trump’s words in calling MS-13 illegal alien gang members “animals.” During a roundtable discussion of California’s sanctuary state laws, Fresno Sheriff Margaret Mims mentioned to Trump the difficulty of working with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency to notify them of an illegal alien MS-13 gang member.

Wednesday on Bloomberg, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) said the government should “start talking about” regulating pay disparities between CEOs and the average worker. Ellison said, “As you know, under the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act, it became required that the publicly traded companies would have to report the ratio between CEO pay and the median worker. It took about five years or more for the Securities Exchange Commission to create a rule. They finally did so now we have a data set of about 225 public the traded companies. We find that CEOs are paid an exorbitant amount of money’s compared workers.

A woman in the audience said that she couldn’t see any difference between President Trump and Adolf Hitler.

Free Markets: Big businesses in Seattle face a substantial new tax to build more affordable housing. This is after the city thwarted private developers who were building affordable housing on their own dime. Only to government officials could this make any sense. This week, the city council unanimously passed a "head tax" of $275 per full-time worker on any company in the city that makes more than $20 million in gross revenues. The city says the $48 million in new taxes will go toward affordable housing and providing emergency services for the city´s swelling homeless population. Major employers like Amazon.com
