U.S. MILITARY RECRUITMENT IS IN FREEFALL

Thursday, June 30th, 2022

 

This is a frightening article as our national security is being threatened.  Nancy 

Thanks To Leftist Corruption, U.S. Military Recruiting Is In Total Freefall

By Chuck DeVore   June 29, 2022    Chuck DeVore is vice president of national initiatives at the Texas Public Policy Foundation, a former California legislator, special assistant for foreign affairs in the Reagan-era Pentagon, and a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army (retired) Reserve. He’s the author of two books, “The Texas Model: Prosperity in the Lone Star State and Lessons for America,” and “China Attacks,” a novel.

Amid the first conventional war in Europe since 1945 and China’s massive military buildup — including nuclear weapons — the U.S. military is experiencing a dangerous drop in its warfighting capability. The U.S. Army, the largest service, has only reached 40 percent of its recruiting goal with just more than three months remaining in the fiscal year.

This military decay will continue under President Joe Biden’s disastrous anti-leadership and likely will take many years of concerted effort to reverse. Further, combined with the chaotic defeat in Afghanistan, America’s ability to deter its enemies from taking hostile action is at a low not seen since the late 1970s, making a major war far more likely.

There are three growing signs of trouble: an alarming collapse in recruiting, a profoundly unserious national security leadership, and weakness in the military supply chain and procurement.
Recruiting Collapse

The military is facing its most severe staffing crisis since the advent of the all-volunteer force in 1973. In March, the Department of Defense (DoD) announced it would reduce its active-duty end strength by 0.2 percent to a little more than 2.1 million. Pentagon comptroller Michael McCord assured us that it’s “not about making the force bigger. We’re looking at making the force more capable.” But only three months later, word broke that every branch in the military is having trouble meeting its recruiting goals.

HE CALLED AMERICA RACIST, NOW HE IS IN CHARGE OF OUR NUKES

HE CALLED AMERICA RACIST, NOW HE’S IN CHARGE OF OUR NUKES
By Daniel Greenfield  June 23, 2022
It was the summer of 2020. Black Lives Matter riots were terrorizing, destroying, and burning American cities. And the first black deputy commander of Air Force Global Strike Command told everyone in the Air Force that he was terrified that white people could kill him at any moment.

“Here I am as a lieutenant general in the United States Air Force,” then Lt. Gen Anthony Cotton whined to Air Force Magazine. “When I see what happened to Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks—and the list goes on and on.”

“That could be me,” he claimed.

Since Cotton was, unlike Breonna Taylor, probably not harboring an armed drug dealer who opened fire on police or, unlike George Floyd, overdosing on fentanyl during a struggle with police as the climax to a long criminal career, that was a disingenuous smear from a top officer.

The spectacle of successful black men like Obama, Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier, or Gen. Anthony Cotton falsely claiming that America is so racist that any of them could suffer the fate of career criminals simply because of an accident of skin color is pathetic and disgusting. The Merck CEO or the Air Force general are as likely to suffer the fate of George Floyd as their white counterparts are to end up like a dead white meth addict shot in a raid in Georgia.

But Cotton knew what he was doing. What he was doing was dishonorable and self-serving.

And it worked.

Two years after complaining about police lights flashing in his rearview mirror and someone challenging his parking spot, Cotton has been nominated by Biden to head U.S. Strategic Command.

100% GREEN ENERGY COULD DESTROY THE PLANET

Friday, June 17th, 2022

 

Beware: 100% green energy could destroy the planet

By Stephen Moore  June 2, 2022

The untold story about “green energy” is that it can’t possibly be scaled up to provide anywhere near the energy to replace fossil fuels. (Unless we are headed back to the stone ages, which is what some of the “de-growth” advocates favor).

Right now, the United States gets 70% of its energy from fossil fuels. To go to zero over the next 20 years would be economically catastrophic and cost tens of millions of jobs. With gas prices at nearly double their price back from when Trump left office and inflation up from 1.5% to 8% in just 15 months, we are already experiencing the economic damage from the green energy crusaders.

But we also have to ask whether green energy is even good for the environment. Some environmentalists are pointing to a little-noticed study by the World Bank showing that moving toward 100% solar, wind, and electric battery energy would be “just as destructive to the planet as fossil fuels.” This was precisely the conclusion of a story in Foreign Policy magazine, hardly a right-wing publication.

According to the Foreign Policy analysis, moving to a “carbon-free” energy future “requires massive amounts of energy, not to mention the extraction of minerals and metals at great environmental and social costs.”

Here are some of the numbers. Going all-in on batteries, solar, and wind would require

  • Thirty-four million metric tons of copper,
  • Forty million tons of lead,
  • Fifty million tons of zinc,
  • One hundred and sixty-two million tons of aluminum,
  • Four-point-eight billion tons of iron.
  • Those tens of millions of windmills, solar panels, and electric batteries for cars and trucks aren’t exactly biodegradable. So, we will have the most prominent energy graveyard with toxic pollutants that will be 100 times larger than any nuclear waste storage. And yet, the Left is worried about plastic straws!

Biden Unilaterally Surrenders to Russia and China in Satellite Wars
by Daniel Greenfield May 8, 2022
Kamala Harris arrived at Vandenberg Space Force Base where Discoverer-1, the first satellite to enter a polar orbit and America’s bold response to Russia’s Sputnik, was launched to announce that we would be unilaterally surrendering to Russia and China in the growing satellite wars.


Last November, Russia had conducted a DA-ASAT or direct-ascent anti-satellite test which demonstrated its ability to take out satellites. The Russians had used their A-235 anti-ballistic missile system to destroy their own Kosmos 1408 satellite. The message was clear: Moscow had the ability to clear out enemy satellites in the event of any conflict. Including ours.

PART 2: Behind China’s Lockdown Madness—Gen. Robert Spalding on a Looming Taiwan Invasion, the Russia-Ukraine War

JAN JEKIELEK

“They’re going to go element by element through their economy and see which of those is still open to attack from the West … to seal those up prior to invading Taiwan.”

Previously, in part one of my interview with retired Brigadier General Robert Spalding, he broke down the Chinese regime’s strategy of unrestricted warfare, which is detailed in his latest book “War Without Rules: China’s Playbook for Global Domination.”

Now in part two, we discuss what’s really going on behind China’s new round of draconian lockdowns. Is it potentially related to Xi Jinping’s plans for Taiwan?

“The Chinese Communist Party doesn’t do things willy-nilly. It’s very deliberate,” Spalding says.

How can the United States effectively counter the Chinese communist threat to Taiwan and the rest of the free world?

FEMA – HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF DURING A NUCLEAR ATTACK

Wednesday, March 9th, 2022

 

Unfortunately, this article re  FEMA advice on how to protect yourself from Covid in the event of a nuclear attack on the United States, was not written by the Babylon Bee, it is real and was published in the Washington Examiner.  Absolutely unreal !   Nancy 
 
FEMA – WHAT TO DO IN THE EVENT OF A NUCLEAR ATTACK
By Kaylee McGee White, Commentary Writer   March 3, 2022

What are the two most important things you can do to protect yourself and your family in the event of an imminent nuclear attack? Wear your mask and practice social distancing, says the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Following reports this week that Russian dictator Vladimir Putin had put his nuclear deterrent forces on high alert, FEMA updated its ready.gov website to include some additional COVID-19 guidance.

“If you are told by authorities to evacuate to a public shelter, try to bring items that can help protect yourself and your family from COVID-19, such as hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol, cleaning materials, and two masks per person,” FEMA said.

“When you have reached a safe place, try to maintain a distance of at least six feet between yourself and people who are not part of your household,” the agency continued. “If possible, wear a mask if you’re sheltering with people who are not a part of your household.”

FEMA also noted that some shelter locations might not be available to the public anymore because of the pandemic, which is encouraging.

 

Once the bombs hit, people should plan to stay inside for at least 24 hours, FEMA added, and wear their masks for the duration of this period. If someone is injured during the attack, people should contact medical emergency personnel (granted that they, too, were fortunate enough to survive a nuclear explosion), but only after making sure no one in their immediate group has COVID-19.

FEMA ended its apocalyptic guide with a helpful reminder: “Talk to someone if you are feeling upset. Many people may already feel fear and anxiety about COVID-19. The threat of a nuclear explosion can add additional stress.”

Suffice to say, I doubt the federal government is going to be much help in the off-chance that Putin does decide to attack. Our bungling bureaucrats can’t even get their priorities straight.

THANK ENVIRONMENTALISTS FOR UKRAINE INVASION

Friday, February 25th, 2022

 

Nolte: You Can Thank Environmentalists for the Invasion of Ukraine

By John Nolte    February 24, 2022

It is the West’s wacko environmentalists who handed Russian President Vladimir Putin the leverage and money to invade Crimea in 2014 and Ukraine this week.

Without these wackos, Putin would be just another gangster in charge of a crumbling country, and maybe one on the verge of a revolution to depose him.

But the facts are the facts are the facts, and the facts are these… Thanks to the West’s environmentalists, those smug greenies who are more concerned with carbon output than world peace, this gangster controls much of the energy going to the European Union (E.U.). Per Statista, here are the countries most dependent on Russia for natural gas. The percentages tell us just how dependent:

  • North Macedonia (100 percent)
  • Finland (94 percent)
  • Bulgaria (74 percent)
  • Slovakia (70 percent)
  • Germany (49 percent)
  • Italy (46 percent)
  • Poland (40 percent)
  • France (24 percent).

It gets worse.

As of 2019, a full 27 percent of the European Union’s crude oil, 41 percent of its natural gas, and 47 percent of its solid fuel (mostly coal) come from Russia.

Why?

Well, it’s very simple. Russia is not stupid. Putin is not stupid. He drills and digs and fracks while Western countries pat themselves on the back for closing coal mines, refusing oil leases, and shuttering nuclear power plants. And in doing so, even at the expense of giving the gangster Putin leverage over them, these Western countries pat themselves on the back for decreasing their carbon footprints and going green…

MEET THE DRAG QUEEN BIDEN JUST PUT IN CHARGE OF NUCLEAR WASTE

Friday, February 11th, 2022

 

Meet The Drag Queen Biden Just Put In Charge Of Nuclear Waste

Politico reported today that Sam Brinton has been appointed the new deputy assistant secretary of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition in the Energy Department’s Office of Nuclear Energy. Who is Sam Brinton? A “non-binary” drag queen into kink. In “their” own words:

Whether they are walking the halls of Congress to help educate the Hill on the differences in advanced nuclear reactors or belting out their favorite tunes with the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington, DC, it is hard to miss Sam Brinton’s passion for changing the world – and potentially their stilettos.

As Jon Miller put it, “even in Weimar, this kind of perverted degeneracy was kept underground”.

ISRAEL (YOU GOTTA READ THIS !!!)

Sunday, May 16th, 2021

 

Thanks to one of our readers, Jordan Jacob, a Jewish conservative, for sharing his thoughts regarding the Jewish-American Biden Voters.  Nancy     

DEAR JEWISH-AMERICAN BIDEN VOTERS (and other Democrats),

We, the grassroots, extremist, rightwing, Trump-loving Jews, would like to extend our warmest gratitude to you in electing one Joe Biden. Especially at this time. You were so right all along, our Nazi President Trump––not your President, of course––kept much too much peace in the world. You were so right to seek Twitter peace above all other; peace in Israel is for the birds.

Today, after 1,000 rockets bombarded the tiny Jewish State, we are comforted by the thought that you no longer feel distraught by Trump’s daily tweets and unsavory TV appearances. Likewise, we are comforted in knowing that your brand of Tikkun Olam works so well for you, Israel be damned.

Our racist, homophobic, and misogynist Russian Spy President did irreparable harm. You called it from the start. Let’s reminisce, shall we?

We recall your heated warnings about an outright bloody war with the Muslim world when President Trump reaffirmed Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel and moved his embassy there.  How right you were.

We recall your dire warnings when The Golan was reaffirmed as sovereign to Israel by our 45th. Once more, you warned us about the oncoming onslaught. How right you were, yet again.

Your trembling knees almost buckled when President Trump supported Bibi’s exposé of Iran’s nuclear program and everything else Bibi said over the last four years.

Your notable courage in support of Israel and her people showed its predictable face when our President firmly supported legitimizing settlements in Judea and Shamron. Without delay, you warned us of the inevitable and unavoidable World War III that would ensure by a complete Islamic coalition against Israel. Instead, Abraham Accords were signed and ISIS entirely obliterated. How right you were.
