Marines Test Women in Combat: Not Pretty

women marines Since the Pentagon has ordered women in combat roles the Marines are trying to figure out what will happen. As tests go, the results will be disputed. The Marines compared squads that were all male to squads with a mix of women and men. According to Quartz, “The US Marines tested all-male squads against mixed-gender ones, and the results were pretty bleak.” Overall, the report says, all-male teams and crews outperformed mixed-gender ones on 93 out of 134 tasks evaluated.

Poor Countries Want You to Pay for Their Weather

globalWarming In what has to be one of the most ridiculous claims on charity ever from self-proclaimed victims, USA Today reports that poor countries that have suffered from "extreme" weather events want reparations from the United States and Europe. And they want them to the tune of $100 billion. Annually. Third World countries have written up their invoice in preparation for the United Nations' Conference on Climate Change planned for December in Paris. Because obviously, there never would have been Read more [...] Continue reading →

Justice Department on Hillary Clinton: Move Along; Nothing to See Here

Unfair Justice The Justice Department on Hillary Clinton sounds like it is part of her campaign organization. You may remember that, in addition to the issue of classified information on Hillary Clinton’s private email server, there was also the question about how we could know if she released all the emails. The report of the Justice Department on Hillary Clinton makes it clear that they have no doubts whatsoever. Byron York writes at the Washington Examiner, “Justice Department on emails: No reason Read more [...] Continue reading →

Congressional Republicans Revolting against GOP Leadership

boehner GOP Leadership has antagonized Republicans for perhaps too long. Maybe, even if we can’t defund Planned Parenthood yet, the GOP leadership will be overturned and replaced with more conservative leadership. Barbara Boland writes at the Washington Examiner, “Calls to depose GOP leadership mount: 'Who is in charge right now?'” For the first time, GOP leadership is very nervous that House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, could be deposed. Conservative disappointment with the Republican leadership Read more [...] Continue reading →

Poll: 29% Would Support a Military Takeover of Government in Some Situations

military coup A sizeable portion of Americans think a Military takeover of the United States might be the best option in some circumstances. I have to admit, I’m not sure what to think of the poll question from YouGov: “Is there any situation in which you could imagine yourself supporting the U.S. Military taking over the powers of the Federal Government?” I would like to think the extraordinarily high numbers that would support such a military takeover reflect the creativity of imagining all possible Read more [...] Continue reading →

Christians Should Not Abuse the First Amendment

rainbow gunpoint The First Amendment does not require other people to endorse or even help us endorse our values—even if they are running a business. I was really happy to see this headline from a Roman Catholic blog: “Refusal to Print Pro-Life Flyer is Rude but Legal.” So Office Depot refused to print a flier outlining some public facts about Planned Parenthood, in particular its funding. The flier also contained a prayer for the conversion of Planned Parenthood, along with a call for prayer and fasting. […] Office Read more [...] Continue reading →

Big Brother Is Fishing in Your Medical Records because Drugs

Obama Death Star If you think your medical records are private, your Federal government disagrees with you. Mark Horne has posted that, by requiring electronic medical records, the government is setting itself up to have access to all our health information. Here is circumstantial evidence that he is right, as reported at “The DEA is rummaging around thousands of people’s medical files without warrants.” DEA, as you probably know, stands for Drug Enforcement Administration—a Federal agency. The Read more [...] Continue reading →

Planned Parenthood Still Gets Funding During "Government Shutdown"

planned parenthood When they say the government shutdown continues to fund "essential services," that means Baby Killing Inc. still gets corporate welfare. This story from Politico showed up in my Facebook feed because a friend was (understandably) outraged at Mitch McConnell: "McConnell: Planned Parenthood funding protest 'exercise in futility'" Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in an interview Friday he will back a plan to fund the government into December with no conditions, rejecting in his strongest Read more [...] Continue reading →

A Survivor of the War on Women Testifies to Congress

jessen abortion A woman who barely escaped the war on women with her life, and who still suffers from her wounding, speaks truth to power. It only makes sense that hearings on Planned Parenthood would discuss the war on women! I’ve mentioned how happy I am that politicians are taking this opportunity to speak about it. It is also great that they gave Gianna Jessen a platform to speak about the war that was waged against her, attempting to kill her, and giving her permanent problems to this day. Julie Roys' blog Read more [...] Continue reading →

Obama Ready to Push Worldwide Carbon Treaty

carbon tax Now that the Iran “nuclear deal” is behind him, the President is ready to concentrate on a worldwide carbon treaty. If you want to know why we desperately need a so-called “government shutdown” in the near future, this terrifying Politico story should convince you: “After Iran deal, Obama to pivot to climate change.” Buoyed by the success of his nuclear deal with Iran, President Barack Obama is preparing to move aggressively on other long-delayed priorities, including a major climate Read more [...] Continue reading →

Have Hillary Clinton Supporters Changed their Minds?

ClintonBenghazi Why are Hillary Clinton supporters advocating the superiority of the private sector to the Federal government? Hillary Clinton supporters are suddenly telling us that privately developed solutions are better and more secure than the services offered by the Federal government? I love the message but I don’t understand how any of Hillary Clinton’s political principles can survive such a message. Doesn’t she approve of Obamacare? How are Hillary Clinton supporters advocating private enterprise? Read more [...] Continue reading →

Rape Culture Hysteria: 13-Year-Old Boy Charged with Assault for Kissing 14-Year-Old Girl

no kissing Is this what is meant by "rape culture"—a young teen facing criminal charges because he kissed a girl on a dare? I don’t think thirteen-year-olds should be kissing teen girls against their will. Both the boy and the other students who encouraged him should be punished. I hate to sound old, but when I was a student, a teen might receive physical discipline for such an act. Now we are much more enlightened. We don’t lay a hand on students; we just bestow on them a permanent criminal record. WBFF Read more [...] Continue reading →
