…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.
