Armed Services Chairman Sounds Alarm on Military’s ‘Marginal’ Strength

Share

“It is absolutely wrong at every level for the country to ask someone to go perform a mission for which they are not fully trained, fully prepared, and fully supported,” Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, says. (Photo: Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call/Newscom)

The military posture of the United States is rated as marginal in a new report from The Heritage Foundation, and that worries the chairman of the House Armed Services Committee.

The nation has “not been resourcing our military commensurate with what we ask our military to do,” Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, said at an event Thursday marking release of the report from the leading conservative think tank.

“And maybe more

John Adams running for attorney general of Virginia

 

GREG COROMBOS/WND

 

He’s not the same John Adams who played a key role in America’s founding, but he is related to the second president and is running for attorney general in Virginia to restore the rule of law and adherence to the Constitution to an office he says is being used for political activism.

“I actually am from the same family in Massachusetts, and I always tell people I think we’re going to be in good shape as long as Thomas Jefferson doesn’t get into the race,” said Adams.

…the brothers did not…

BY KATIE CONRAD/Liftable.com,

When tragedy strikes a community, it is expected that some people will step up and help make a difference for those suffering. During Hurricane Harvey, it was no different.

Volunteers across the state of Texas, and police, firefighters, and donors from all over the country came to the aid of Texans who were affected by the storm. People used the resources and skills they had to help in any way they could.

Two restaurant owners, Phe Nguyen and Binh Nguyen, wanted to help the victims of the hurricane. They did it the best way they knew how: by feeding them.

The video site seeks to limit access to common sense ideas it apparently deems to be too “controversial.”

By Thomas Gallatin · at The Patriot Post/https://patriotpost.us/articles/51752

Last Thursday, Mike Rowe, the immensely likable host of “Dirty Jobs,” announced via a Facebook post that his YouTube channel had been restricted. Now anyone who has ever watched a Mike Rowe video would be shocked to hear this news, as his videos are often some of the most carefully worded, timely and poignant thoughts on a great variety of issues — hence his overall popularity. And one thing Rowe trumpets is respect for the value of hard work, no matter the job.

Iran promised a “crushing” response Monday if President Donald Trump followed through on designating the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization, which nearly every Democratic caucus member voted for him to do.

The IRGC serves as the chief security force of Iran, the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism. Trump is coming up against the Oct. 15 deadline where he is expected to decertify the nuclear deal brokered by the Obama administration and also label IRGC a terrorist group.

Now, we know my mother has flaws, but….

Share

By Selwyn Duke at Renew America

There’s a disclaimer many of us have been conditioned to utter, quite reflexively, and it’s something that has got to stop. When preparing a defense of the United States (against, lamentably, other “Americans”), we may preface it with, “Well, I know our country isn’t perfect” or, as pundit Tucker Carlson said while debating a bigoted lawyer last month, “I don’t deny…that this country is flawed….” Actually, our perspective is flawed.

To gain some perspective, imagine you were giving a speech about your mother and opened with, “Now, we know my mother has flaws, but….” Sound good?

Consider the message sent. Since we’re all imperfect, it’s a given your mother has flaws, and, therefore, it

We Need Fallacy Control Now!

Enough is enough. It’s epidemic. It’s dangerous. And the time has come to demand its end.

In the aftermath of the horrific massacre in Las Vegas, America needs fallacy control. Yes, we must declare war on fallaciousness. Now more than ever, the nation is suffering from an outbreak of illogical thinking. In response to senseless violence, clearheaded citizens deserve a safe space from the 24/7 barrage of rhetorical nonsense. Let’s break down the collective cognitive breakdown.

Argumentum ad celebritum.

Empty talking points don’t become persuasive arguments when uttered by Hollywood stars. But in the bizarre land of the celebrity cult, late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel has been suddenly anointed “America’s conscience” and “voice of reason.”

Review: ‘The Ordinary Virtues: Moral Order in a Divided World’ by Michael Ignatieff

Gilbert Keith Chesterton / Getty Images

BY: /the Washington Free Beacon.

A modest thought, a gentle faith, a quiet cultivation: There is a line of modern thought that seems to slip from view every other generation, only to reappear here and there among the in-between cohorts. The English cleric Sydney Smith (1771–1845) was of this kind, and perhaps his only generally remembered line is the maxim, “Take short views, hope for the best, and trust in God.”
