Is The Pentagon Finally Listening To Conservatives On LGBT Issues?

Secretary James Mattis has quietly squelched (at least temporarily) the Obama plan to enlist transgender recruits into the United States military services. However, the question remains whether Mattis plans to kill Obama’s plan or to eventually let it become Pentagon policy.

Obama LGBT Policies at Pentagon, Other Agencies Running On Autopilot

“For 16 years we’ve been at war. When service members are not deployed overseas, they are preparing for war,” says retired Army Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin. “Not one minute of preparation time should be squandered on social experiments.”

Will Donald Trump Start the Second Korean War?

There is no magic solution to the North Korea Problem. But military action should be a last resort, reserved for preempting a direct and imminent threat that doesn’t presently exist. Washington must avoid triggering the Second Korean War.

Pro-Trump Conservatives Being Massacred In The Battle For The Pentagon

Richard V. Spencer may be eminently qualified on paper to be the next Secretary of the Navy, but President Trump was not elected to continue Obama’s national security policies, or worse yet, implement Hillary Clinton’s.

Trump Needs to Drain the Swamp at the Obama Pentagon

The neo-con counter to Trump’s “Make America Great Again” seems to be shaping up to be “Make Russia Evil Again.” If President-elect Trump wants to drain the swamp in DC, and formulate a new national security policy focused on winning cyberwarfare battles and eradicating ISIS and militant Islam, he should start by draining Obama’s Pentagon.

Transgenders In The Military: We Need A Revolt Of The Admirals And Generals

Congressional hearings without honest testimony from those military officers called to testify are useless. In Obama’s politicized Pentagon, and the environment of political correctness and gender politics in which it operates, it will take men and women of real courage, who are prepared to tell the truth about the danger of admitting into our military individuals with gender identity disorder, and, like the Admirals who revolted in 1948 and 1949, put their careers on the line.

Why are America’s Allies so Persistently Pathetic?

Washington’s allies generally are a pathetic lot. Benefiting from sizeable and capable populations and enjoying large and advanced economies, they nevertheless can’t be bothered to invest heavily in their own defense, so the bulk of Washington’s over-size military outlays are to project power for the benefit of its ne’er-do-well allies.

Obama’s New Containment Policy vs. Reagan’s Doctrine of “We Win, They Lose”

If Obama’s policy of “containment” of the Islamic State prevails, then we have just witnessed the first battles in a long war that will last until a President with Ronald Reagan’s courage stands up and decides that we win and they lose.

Obama’s Treasonous Squandering of American Power

It took sixty-nine years to build America into the world's only superpower; it has taken Obama less than six to flippantly throwaway America’s national influence and unilaterally disarm America through a conscious and treasonous hollowing-out of America’s military capability. Sign and share the petition to impeach Barack Obama.

From Our What Could Go Wrong Department: Self-Replicating Machines To Replace Soldiers With Robots

The notion that creating a factory capable of reproducing itself and producing armed, autonomous drones and robots equals “scientific progress” reminds us all too much of the celebrations of the technical achievements involved in the NSA’s as yet uncharted ability to eavesdrop on virtually any form of communication.

From Our New “What Could Go Wrong” Department

Military robots and drones are becoming “smarter” and more autonomous. Until the scientific and technical geniuses behind the idea of autonomous armed drones also equip them with a foolproof “Constitution chip” Americans should oppose the deployment of such technology.
