‘We Have Reached Peak Crazy’: Marines Reportedly Removing ‘Man’ From Certain Job Titles in Gender-Neutrality Push |

"The move has proved unpopular with many Marines and sailors, with several branding it political correctness run amok.

“We have reached peak crazy,” a reader commented regarding a previous Times story on the issue.

“If a woman isn’t going to consider making the Navy her career because she is called a fireman or a corpsman, then I don’t think she was going to make the Navy a career period,” a reader commented on a Navy Times story. “We don’t need [people who are easily offended] like that clogging up the institutions that protect our country.”

Plowright, who is 33 years old and works in IT, was similarly successful in her district, located near Colorado Springs, Colorado..."

CHEROKEE TRIBE MEMBERS to Confront Phony Indian Elizabeth Warren on Book Tour

CHEROKEE TRIBE MEMBERS to Confront Phony Indian Elizabeth Warren on Book Tour:
Democrat Elizabeth Warren was exposed as a fraud when she claimed for years that she was Cherokee Indian.
paleface warren

During her campaign for senator Cherokee Indian activists traveled to Massachusetts to confront Warren on her fraudulent past.
But Warren would not meet with them.
Legal Insurrection reported:
In Elizabeth Warren’s new book, A Fighting Chance, Warren claims to be “hurt and angry” that people criticized her claim to be Native American, specifically Cherokee.  Warren blamed the Scott Brown campaign, the local Republican Party, and “some blogger.”
In fact, Warren has no one to blame but herself for her false claim to be Cherokee.  ReadElizabeth Warren Wiki, and these posts responding to the claims in her book:
Warren will be launching a nationwide book tour.  Someone who wants to meet Warren is Twila Barnes.
Barnes is the Cherokee Genealogist whose groundbreaking genealogical research exposed the falsehood to Warren’s claims. Barnes and her team of Cherokee genealogists traced Warren’s family lines back to the early 1800s and documented that Warren’s family not only was not Cherokee or other Native American, but also that they never lived as such.
Now this…
The Cherokee tribe members said this week they look forward to confronting Warren on her book tour this month.
Sounds like great fun.

"A Republican congressman told Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” Wednesday that he is shocked by Secretary of State John Kerry’s claim that the terror attack at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport is a sign that the Islamic State is getting “desperate.”

Instead, they looked like Larry, Moe and Curly.

Clinton outlines tech agenda focused on innovation, expanded internet access | Washington Examiner:
"Hillary Clinton unveiled a three-part plan on Tuesday aimed at stimulating job creation and innovation by expanding public access to technology and enabling college students to postpone payments on student debt up to three years.
...The comprehensive plan features three key goals: installing high-speed internet in every American home by 2020, providing students with access to computer science courses before they pursue higher education and incentivizing entrepreneurship by permitting students to defer their federal student loans if they become involved in startups or develop their own small businesses.

According to her plan, Clinton would create a federal grant intended for cities, regions and states that create "model digital communities" by making broadband internet accessible in public places and striving for "world-class connectivity..."

British Solar Industry In Total Free Fall After Subsidy Cuts

British Solar Industry In Total Free Fall After Subsidy Cuts | The Global Warming Policy Forum (GWPF):
"Solar power in the U.K. is collapsing after the government cut its subsidies, according to industry reports published Sunday.
The British solar industry estimates that it lost 18,000 jobs since the subsidy cuts. 
The U.K. subsidy cutbacks are part of the collapse of Europe’s green energy industry.
...“All industries have their ups and downs, but the solar industry’s ups and downs are entirely dependent on the level of handouts from government,” Myron Ebell, director of the Center for Energy and Environment at the free market Competitive Enterprise Institute, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
“The British government has realized that even in sunny Britain subsidizing solar panels is a waste of taxpayer money.”
British subsidies and tax incentives intended to support the solar industry were enormously costly.
Brits paid a whopping 54 percent more for electricity than Americans in 2014 while energy taxes cost residents roughly $6.6 billion every year.
Green energy subsidies in the U.K regularly exceed spending caps and account for roughly 7 percent of British energy bills, according to a government study released last July.
Subsidies had driven the energy prices so high that 38 percent of British households have cut back essential purchases, like food, to pay their energy bills and another 59 percent of homes were worried about how they are going to pay energy bills..."

Flashback: '60 Minutes' edits Obama's answer on Benghazi | Washington Examiner

Flashback: '60 Minutes' edits Obama's answer on Benghazi | Washington Examiner:

"CBS News' "60 Minutes" selectively edited an interview with President Obama in 2012 to omit his comment that it was unclear whether an assault on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, was the pre-meditated work of terrorists, or a random uprising.

Obama's uncertainty in that interview, conducted one day after the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack, stands in sharp contrast to when he stated indignantly during an Oct. 16 presidential debate that he saw the assault as an act of terror from the get-go.

Part of the CBS interview first aired on Sept. 23. However, CBS withheld specific portions of the president's sit-down from its original air date. Instead of running the president's remarks on the attack, CBS released small snippets of his comments throughout the final days of the 2012 election."

State of Weakness

By Tammy Derouin

The evidence is right before us.  The current administration will stop at nothing to destroy our country.  How bad does it truly have to get before the reality of what is happening is understood by all?  How many Islamic Jihadist attacks must take place, within our borders, before we realize it isn’t the Second Amendment that is the problem, it’s the failure of our government to identify and eradicate our enemy. How much blood must be shed before the rest of the nation wakes up and understands that the government, which is supposed to protect us, is trying to destroy us?
War was declared on September 11, 2001.  Our failure to identify this attack as a declaration of war has led to our current state of weakness.  It led to an administration that sympathizes with those who wish to destroy us.  Instead of focusing on the destruction of our enemy, they are focused on destroying the United States.  The administration has been persistently targeting law-abiding American citizens.  Government agencies, such as the IRS and the TSA, have been harassing innocent Americans while our enemies have been able to gain access by way of unprotected, open borders.  The administration also seems to take special interest in weakening and humiliating our military by any and all means possible.   It’s as if this has all been done by design.

We did not want to believe that this type of evil existed. We did not want to be accused of judging an entire region based on the actions of a few, never mind the history. Our carelessness has brought the war to our shores...... 

Holi crapoli, too many folks are nearly broke!-----Six Challenges to Retirement Security

Six Challenges to Retirement Security:
  1. Many Americans lack the income or resources to save for short-term needs — so they raid their retirement accounts. "Unfortunately, many Americans are unable to save because they have low earnings, coupled with immediate demands that consume all of their income," according to the report (see chart below). "But the problem is broader than that. Nearly half of individuals say that they could not come up with $2,000 in 30 days without selling possessions or taking out payday loans." 
    Real Incomes Haven't Grown Since 2000
  2. Americans are increasingly at risk of outliving their savingsOverall life expectancy among Americans who live to 65 has risen from 79 in 1940 to 85 in 2014. Over the next 25 years, the number of people age 85 and older will more than double. "Today, working Americans who want to retire at the same age as was typical of previous generations must save more to cover additional years of consumption in retirement," the report warns.

Petition for Second Referendum Exposed As Fake

Petition for Second Referendum Exposed As Fake - Andre Walker:
"LONDON, United Kingdom - Pro-European spammers have fooled the British establishment into believing a million people a day have signed a petition to hold a second referendum on Brexit.
The petition demands the referendum rules are retrospectively changed forcing a second vote on Britain’s membership of the EU.
But doubts were raised about the authenticity of those signing after evidence that a code was being used emerged.
It shows how the petition website was tricked into registering millions of ‘signatures’ from people who do not exist.
Further questions were raised over the petition after analysis showed that just 353k of the nearly 3 million signatures were from the UK. 
A total of 3000 were reported to be from Vatican City, a country with a population of just 800.
Most UK national newspapers reported on the petition today, seemingly unaware of the fraud.
Both the Sunday Telegraph and Mirror put the story on the frontpage.
The Independent has run multiple stories on the subject, at one stage crowing that the website kept crashing.
The petition is hosted on Parliament’s own website and rules at the House of Commons mean any petition with over 100k signatures is considered for debate by MPs. 
...The referendum petition reads: “We the undersigned call upon HM Government to implement a rule that if the remain or leave vote is less than 60% based a turnout less than 75% there should be another referendum.”
It will be open for the next six months, at the present rate of growth it will have been signed by 1,800,000,000 or thirty times the entire UK population by the time it closes."

NEVER trust the government!-----California Hits the Brakes on High-Speed Rail Fiasco

California Hits the Brakes on High-Speed Rail Fiasco - Bloomberg View
"...Sold to the public in 2008 as a visionary plan to whisk riders along at 220 miles an hour, making the trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles in a little over two and a half hours, the project promised to attract most of the necessary billions from private investors, to operate without ongoing subsidies and to charge fares low enough to make it competitive with cheap flights.
Image result for California high-Speed Rail Fiasco cartoonWith those assurances, 53.7 percent of voters said yes to a $9.95 billion bond referendum to get the project started. 
But the assurances were at best wishful thinking, at worst an elaborate con.
The total construction cost estimate has now more than doubled to $68 billion from the original $33 billion, despite trims in the routes planned.
The first, easiest-to-build, segment of the system -- the “train to nowhere” through a relatively empty stretch of the Central Valley -- is running at least four years behind schedule and still hasn’t acquired all the needed land.
...And no investors are lining up to fill the $43 billion construction-budget gap.
Now, courtesy of Los Angeles Times reporter Ralph Vartabedian, comes yet another damning revelation:
When the Spanish construction company Ferrovial submitted its winning bid for a 22-mile segment, the proposal included a clear and inconvenient warning:
“More than likely, the California high speed rail will require large government subsidies for years to come.” 
Ferrovial reviewed 111 similar systems around the world and found only three that cover their operating costs.
This research should surprise no one who pays attention.
Even advocates acknowledge that almost all high-speed rail systems need ongoing subsidies..."

Good, albeit terrible, read.-----Where Was The Commander-n-Chief For 8 Hours? A Case for Maladministration

Where Was The Commander-n-Chief For 8 Hours? A Case for Maladministration | Journal of a Conservative G-Ma:
"There is this thing called a CBA, Cross- Border-Authority.
This is either granted or withheld by the President of the United States, the Commander-in-Chief. Sending additional forces into a foreign country is the direct responsibility of the Commander-in-Chief, only he can give this command (authorize the CBA) or refuse it.
According to retired Navy Seal officer, Matt Bracken, who took a Nav-Spec-War Detachment to Beirut:
“Once the alarm is sent -in this case, from the consulate in Benghazi — dozens of HQs are notified and are in the planning loop in real-time, including AFRICOM and EURCOM, both located in Germany.
Without waiting for specific orders from Washington, they begin planning and executing rescue operations, including moving personnel, ships, and aircraft forward toward the location of the crisis. However, there is one thing they can’t do without explicit orders from the president: cross an international border on a hostile mission.  
Image result for benghaziThat is the clear ‘red line’ in this type of a crisis situation.”
We know the back story, we have heard all the talk and speculation regarding Gun running to the Syrian’s and we now know that to be true, as Obama and his criminal cronies are currently and openly sending arms and God knows what else to the Syrian Rebels.
We have heard from dozens of officials, and even been told by Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State at the time the catastrophe in Benghazi occurred “What Difference Does it Make!”
Well Hillary, according to this new or not so new information which has come to light, it makes a bloody big difference!
Because what Mr. Bracken is saying is that to avoid any embarrassment, or stumbling into a war because some “jet jokey, in hot pursuit (or a mixed-up SEAL squad in a rubber boat) strays into hostile territory.”  
Only the Commander-in-Chief, the president of the United States can give the order for our military to cross a nation’s boarder without that nation’s express permission.
...Now on the flip side of the CBA coin is this; to avoid or prevent a rescue in Benghazi, all the Commander-in-Chief, the President of the United States, the only person with the authority to grant a CBA, is to not grant the Cross Border Authority; if the Commander-in-Chief does not grant the CBA, the entire rescue mission must stop, even if underway. 
According to Mr. Bracken, retired Navy SEAL officer:
“Ships can loiter on station, but airplanes fall out of the sky, so they must be redirected to an air base (Signorelli, in Sicily) to await the [Commander-in-Chief’s] decision on granting CBA.
If the decision to grant CBA never comes, the besieged diplomatic outpost in Benghazi can rely only on assets already “in country” in Libya — such as the Tripoli quick reaction force and the Predator drones.
These assets can be put into action on the independent authority of the acting ambassador or CIA station chief in Tripoli.
They are already “in country,” so CBA rules do not apply to them.”
So with this in mind, how might this process have played out in the White House, that fateful night on September 11th 2012?..."

Gas Station Offers Special Discount To Help Security

Gas Station Offers Special Discount To Help Security « WCCO | CBS Minnesota:
"MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — After two robberies in less than three months, a Sauk Rapids gas station owner decided to try something different. His unique offer gained so much attention that business is now up.
Now, the owner says a single sheet of paper is changing his business.
Image result for Gas Station Offers Discount For Law Enforcement, Permit-To-Carry HoldersThe new, nondescript sign hanging on a Sauk Rapids Shell gas station is changing business for owner Frank Schwagel.
“If you come in and provide evidence that you are law enforcement, security or have a permit to carry a firearm — if you show it to my employees you’ll get a 10 cent per gallon discount on any gas you’ll buy,” he said.
In March and May of this year, the small town gas station was robbed twice — once at gunpoint.
“It’s very frustrating,” Schwagel said.
“You get mad and concerned about your employees.”
While local police are doing their job investigating the crime, Frank thought to make a move on his own: offer discounted gas to law enforcement and those with a permit to carry after 7 p.m.
“It was just an idea to increase store traffic in the evening and get people in here so my employees wouldn’t have to be down here alone at night,” he said.
He posted the sign Tuesday, and within a week a photo of the new offer went viral on Facebook.
“The next thing, the radio was calling and newspaper and now TV stations are calling,” Schwagel said.
The uptick in customers is not only good for business, but a busy store helps employees feel safer.
“It’s working out so far,” Schwagel said.
“We have a lot more people coming in at night versus what we used to have.
It’s been a good thing so far.”
Shwagel says he’s also installed a new security and surveillance system in his store, and he hopes to see other gas stations adopt their policy."

This is GREAT!-----‘Brexit’ leader gives face-melting speech to stunned EU leaders he worked 17 YEARS to defeat

‘Brexit’ leader gives face-melting speech to stunned EU leaders he worked 17 YEARS to defeat | BizPac Review:
"...“When I came here 17 years ago and I said that I wanted to lead a campaign to get Britain to leave the European Union, you all laughed at me,” Farage said.
“Well I have to say, you’re not laughing now, are you?”
The reason for their obvious anger was “perfectly clear” to Farage.
“You, as a political project, are in denial,” he said.
“You’re in denial that your currency is failing …” 
When interrupted by strong boos, Farage pointed to the EU’s inept policies in the Mediterranean. When this drew more boos, Farage sarcastically quipped, “No, no, no — as a policy to impose poverty on Greece and the rest of the Mediterranean, you’ve done very well.”
Farage blasted their lax immigration policies as well, telling the European MEPs they were “in denial over Mrs. Merkel’s call last year for as many people as possible to cross the Mediterranean into the EU has led to massive divisions between countries and within countries.”
Describing the Brexit vote as a way ordinary citizens are taking back their ability to make decisions in their own national interest, Farage said the British people, “rejected the multinationals, they rejected the merchant banks, they rejected big politics, and they said actually we want our country back, we want our fishing waters back, we want our borders back.
We want to be an independent, self-governing, normal nation and that is what we have done and that is what must happen.”
“And in doing so,” Farage continued, “we now offer a beacon of hope to democrats across the rest of the European continent.”
In maintaining British desire to continue trade with member nations, The UKIP leader implored members to not seek a trade war with the British, because the “consequences would be far worse for you than it is for us,” mentioning in particular the thousands of German automotive jobs at stake.
After predicting that the UK wouldn’t be the last member state to leave the EU, the British MEP offered a parting shot that got him censured by President Schultz – Farage openly mocked the members by telling them they have never held a “proper job” or “worked in business” or “worked in trade or indeed ever created a job.”
Even though that was probably true, it was a bridge too far for Schultz, who told Farage as much.
But the victory lap had already been run, and what a lap it was!
