…this stabs right at the soul of America.

Remaking the Military in the Image of Obama

By J. Robert Smith

Comrade Obama and the Politburo, both conveniently located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, are in the midst of overhauling the nation’s military. Radically so, as befits the nation’s most radical president. Downsizing the armed forces is the cover, in part.

The people’s savior is giving the heave-ho to military brass who can’t quite get with the program, which might be described as inflicting a smothering political correctness on the nation’s armed forces. Political correctness is actually too charitable. What Comrade Obama is committing is ideological warfare on the traditions and virtues that are at the core of the armed forces — and, in fact, the nation’s core. Part and parcel of this war against the traditional military is the mainstream media-neglected war on faith — Judeo-Christian faith, that is — among our men and women in uniform.

…up front. I’m easily amused.

…and their experiment in ‘diversity’ seems to be hitting a wall.
Women in the infantry is a bad idea.
Here’s what’s happened so far:
Few female Marines step forward for infantry
By Kristina Wong

Female Marine officers are unlikely to join the infantry anytime soon, in part because of a lack of volunteers for the Marine Corps‘ Infantry Officer Course, which was opened to women in September.

Only two of about 80 eligible female Marines have volunteered for the course — a grueling, three-month advanced regimen conducted at Quantico, Va., that was opened to women to research their performance.

Of the two female volunteers, one washed out on the first day, along with 26 of the107 men, and the other dropped out two weeks later for medical reasons, a Marine Corps spokesman said.

The research effort was launched after the Pentagon opened to women more than 14,000 jobs that could place them closer to front lines and combat.

The Marine Corps wants to test at least 90 more women in the course before making any decision about women serving in infantry roles, the spokesman said.

Getting 90 more female volunteers may be difficult. About 125 female officers each year enter the Basic School, a prerequisite and candidate pool for the Infantry Officer Course, the spokesman said.

Since September, women in every new class of the Basic School have been given the opportunity to volunteer for the Infantry Officer Course, and they will continue to be offered the chance, he said.

…as usual.

What can I say, that I haven’t already? Well, I guess there’s a lot. The MSM sucks ass. I probably already said that, but just in case.

Here are a few words of wisdom for your consumption.

Something Is Wrong
By Ben Stein

Don’t look now, but Islam is becoming the MSM’s official religion of America.

Don’t look now, but Islam is becoming the MSM’s official religion of America.

Now, it’s not just that no one bats an eye at the amazing truth that the United States is beaming TV ads all over Pakistan apologizing for a derogatory Internet trailer for a nonexistent movie demeaning the being that Muslims call “The Prophet Mohammed.” No one in the MSM even slightly hints that doing the kowtow in the same country that sheltered Osama bin Laden to a group that reveled in, delighted in the terrorism against American civilians and still provides the framework for the terrorist Haqqani network, might be humiliating and an insult to the memory of the great Americans who were murdered just last week in Libya.

No, we just take it in stride that our President and our Secretary of State will apologize to the people who hate us and want us dead. That’s not what I am referring to.
I am referring to something worse: Have you noticed that in the past few years, and especially in the past few weeks since the murder of the Ambassador and his guards and colleague in Benghazi (a city that Erwin Rommel loved and whose inhabitants he praised), whenever the New York Times refers to Mohammed, they always call him, without quotation marks, The Prophet Mohammed, as if everyone with any sense understands that OF COURSE Mohammed is The One True Prophet and that it’s just understood that Mohammed is The Prophet.

…America is going out of business.

First off. General Dempsey is a fucking moron. He needs to be fired. He must have forgotten the oath that he took to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL enemies FOREIGN and DOMESTIC.
Did they leave that out when you signed up general?

This is what passes for leaders in the military? I feel bad for our troops. I can’t imagine the PC bullshit they have to put up with these days.

 Top U.S. military officer calls pastor over film

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the U.S. military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, spoke with Pastor Terry Jones by phone on Wednesday and asked him to withdraw his support for a film whose portrayal of the Prophet Mohammad has sparked violent protests – including one that ended with the death of America’s envoy to Libya. “In the brief call, Gen. Dempsey expressed his concerns over the nature of the film, the tensions it will inflame and the violence it will cause,” Dempsey’s spokesman, Colonel Dave Lapan, told Reuters. “He asked Mr. Jones to consider withdrawing his support for the film.” U.S. military officials are concerned that the film could inflame tensions in Afghanistan, where 74,000 U.S. troops are fighting. The Taliban earlier on Wednesday called on Afghans to prepare for a fight against Americans and urged insurgents to “take revenge” on U.S. soldiers over the film.

 

…with gay marriage now a reality in some states, I guess the military is now going that route. Thanks Obama, moron. I figured the Navy would beat them to the punch bowl, but the Navy probably was already doing this prior to the lifting of “Don’t ask, don’t tell.”

You know the Navy’s motto “Gay, Gray, and Under-way!”

Just kidding Navy. Just a little Service rivalry bashing, that’s all.

It’s Slate, so fair warning.

The Wedding

Will and Erwynn met at church and fell in love. But they had a big problem—“don’t ask, don’t tell.” The unlikely story of the first gay military union.

So how’s that APA study on homosexual parenting standing up to scrutiny? Not so well it seems.

They don’t even meet their own standards. Pathetic.

Checking the APA’s Findings on Homosexual Parenting

By Janice Shaw Crouse

Since 2005, when the American Psychological Association (APA) issued an official brief on lesbian and gay parenting, political correctness has demanded that all agree with the spurious assessment that children of homosexual parents do fine. The APA declared, “A growing body of scientific literature demonstrates that children who grow up with one or two gay and/or lesbian parents fare as well in emotional, cognitive, social, and sexual functioning as do children whose parents are heterosexual. Children’s optimal development seems to be influenced more by the nature of the relationships and interactions within the family unit than by the particular structural form it takes.” In a fit of concurrence, elite opinion-makers, academics, and those in the mainstream media voiced their wisdom by declaring that any household structure works well as long as there are loving relationships within the family unit.

In the absence of research to the contrary and a barrage of positive media images of homosexuals in family settings, public attitudes were manipulated into widespread acceptance of same-sex parenting. The few lone dissenting voices were harassed and discredited.

But the prestigious Social Science Research journal recently published highly credited research that counters the prevailing public and scientific attitudes. Loren Marks, of Louisiana State University, authored “Same-Sex Parenting and Children’s Outcomes: A Closer Examination of the American Psychological Association’s Brief on Lesbian and Gay Parenting,” which uses objective scientific methods to examine the APA assertion about the outcomes of homosexual parenting. Marks’ research calls into question the validity of the research methods and analysis of the 59 published studies cited by the APA.

Sticking with the all racism all the time meme, I thought I’d toss these out there. The political correctness that runs amok in the university system in America is stifling.The left uses it like a club and wields it with out any regard to the consequences.

I’ll bet a dollar to a doughnut that some idiot liberal will post a comment that I’m racist for posting these. That shit doesn’t work any more morons.

At any rate, enjoy the read.

Racism and the PC Inquisition

By John T. Bennett

Monday last week, The Chronicle of Higher Educationannounced that Naomi Schaefer Riley was fired from their blog “Brainstorm” for writing that black studies programs should be “eliminated” because they are “left-wing victimization claptrap.”  The next day, the News & Observer of Raleighreported that a staggering 54 classes were suspected of academic fraud at UNC-Chapel Hill.  Every single one of those 54 classes were within UNC’s Department of African and Afro-American studies, according to a UNC investigation.  Is it pure coincidence that academic fraud found such a welcoming and statistically unlikely home in the black studies department?  Or is it predictable that the department with the most rigid PC orthodoxy created a cloister for academic fraud?

The incessant pressure of political correctness is not just an academic matter.  Any standard of conduct, any law, any test is called racist if minorities on average can’t meet the standard, follow the law, or obtain identical scores compared to non-minorities.  The result can only be described as a PC Inquisition, which gives rise to orthodoxy with real-world consequences.  In general, any discussion of pressing social problems is silenced if minority groups are described as responsible for their own actions and circumstances.

The Rules Are Changing for Talking about Race

By Jay Schalin

Attorney General Eric Holder should have been more careful about what to ask for.  When he first took office, he called for a national dialogue on race, calling us “a nation of cowards” for not facing the subject honestly.

It may be that he’s getting what he asked for, but it is not taking the direction he expected.  There’s perhaps a little too much courage and honesty going on for his tastes.

Until very recently, white people in the public eye carefully avoided any comments that fell outside narrow politically correct boundaries; to do so was to volunteer to be the defendant in a media show trial, with a loss of reputation and career the likely result.  Even Bill Cosby, who had achieved a universal father-figure status among African-Americans and was arguably the nation’s most popular black person, had his ears pinned back with a firestorm of criticism in 2004 when he suggested that problems in the black community originated in that community rather than with white racism.

Google Shuts Down Another Conservative Blog: KSM Trial Edition

This past Sunday morning, I took to my blog, The New York Conservative, to opine on the trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (“KSM”) and his fellow terrorists. The full text of the post is available further below.

The New York Conservative was a blog hosted by Google Blogger. I started the blog in February of this year and had posted 17 columns prior to the KSM entry, commenting on political matters and issues affecting the Catholic Church. I would post my entries on Facebook and occasionally would email a link to friends or other interested parties. I received no complaints about the blog whatsoever.

On Monday, the pro-U.S. security group Secure American Now posted a link to my KSM piece on its website. The link received numerous hits and generated multiple comments on the Secure America Now page.

However, a few hours after Secure America Now linked to the New York Conservative, I received a form email, no reply possible, from Google Blogger informing me that the New York Conservative had been deleted. The email classified my blog as “spam” in violation of Google’s terms of service. There was no further explanation. My URL was dead; all of the content, everything I ever posted, was gone.

You need your friends — you always have and you always will. That’s why our Bros Before Hos Rulebook will guide you through the tricky process of balancing your girl and your guys. Here are the rules to live by.

Bros Before Hos – Part II

One of the biggest challenges in relationships isn’t keeping the girl, it’s how to keep your friends and the girl. A sad truth of dating is that once you’ve succeeded in getting her, you lose time with your friends. You can easily find yourself under pressure to focus your energy on your partner and the blossoming relationship.

Needless to say, you need a good balance of both in your life. Spending the rest of your days without women would be unthinkable, but so would going without your bros.
