HELL YEAH! Trump Just Gave Military Their Balls Back IN BIG Way — Enemies Run Scared!

Trump is making America’s Military Great Again!

Published

on

Donald Trump was very clear in his message during his campaign that when his administration takes office the military will get the attention they so richly deserve. Now he is putting his money where his mouth is. This last Thursday the United States Army Chief of Staff said that they are preparing to brief the President-elect on their plans to increase the level of modernization. As well as the possibility of adding more soldiers to their ranks.

General Mark Miller

General Mark Miller told the audience at an Association of the United States Army breakfast the following,

We do want to be bigger. We, the Army, think our capacity needs to increase … we think our capability — the technical capability of our systems and formations — needs to increase, and we think our readiness needs to increase.”

They are hoping to roll back the deep cuts to end strength and modernization that President Obama had implemented. Miller continued on to say the following,

We fully understand that it’s an expensive proposition. We know specifically what we need to do, and we are prepared to discuss that when asked by the new administration. In many of the ways we measure readiness, we have made some significant improvements.

Our equipment statuses are better than they were, our training is better now — we have got units rotating through decisive-action rotations at the [combat training centers and] a lot of home-station training. We are not there yet; we are not at the level of readiness that we need to be at to fully execute the national strategic plans to the level that I would be comfortable with.”

One of the biggest impediments to military readiness is the lack of trained soldiers. LEss in fact than they are required to have. He said,

Manning has been the biggest problem area, dragging readiness back. We are still significantly challenged on the manning front with a significant amount of non-availables, so we have got to work hard at that.”

By October 1st the National Defense Authorization Act has forced the military strength up to 476,000. Which is far more than that under the Obama administration who decreased the active force to 460,000. The General went on,

If we do get additional people, the very first thing we need to do is improve the manning levels in the existing organizations because our formations are under-strength. We set a target of 95 percent, depending on the unit, but when you take out your 10 percent of unavailables, you take our your day-to-day activities that strip people out of training, you find units going to training sometimes down around 80 percent or, in some cases, even lower.”

However, adding more manpower requires more money and funding. Building up strength requires more money and funding. The largest effort of this year will be remanning he said. Considering Trump’s strong support for veterans and the military it is highly unlikely they will not have his support.

The Little Known History Of Our WW II Women Code Breakers

American women are badass!

Chuck Yarling

Published

on

Most everyone knows about the Navaho code talkers, those Indians who used a version of their own language to transmit tactical information between units in the Pacific theater during WW II. Indeed, several were feted in the Oval of the White House. 

But were you aware of the women WW II code breakers? Most haven’t. So here it is.

First of all, code breakers were those patriots whose sole job was to decode enemy intelligence messages and transmit the information to our troop commanders.

It all began shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. There were two operations in effect. In the spring of 1942, the Navy began sending out recruiting letters to the top men and women at the elite colleges they were attending.

In early meetings, the women were given

A brief introduction to the arcane history of codes and ciphers, along with numbered problem sets they were to complete every week.

Those who answered enough of their given problems correctly and completed a subsequent course were hired to work in the Navy’s Washington, D.C., headquarters in the spring of 1942.

At the same time, the Army was doing the very same thing.

The common attributes of the chosen women? They all were all

Adept at math or science or foreign languages, often all three. They were dutiful and patriotic. They were adventurous and willing. And they did not expect any public credit for the clandestine intelligence work they were entering into.

The difference between the women hired by the Navy and Army was the latter: The Army sent the women to serve outside the U.S. and some were sent them to

Australia and the Pacific Islands, and even with Gen. Douglas MacArthur when he occupied Tokyo after the war.

The success of these code breakers was phenomenal.

U.S. and British penetration of the Nazi Enigma cipher that German Admiral Karl Donitz used to direct his U-boat commanders helped bring about the total elimination of the Nazi submarine threat.

Other women helped create “dummy traffic”: fake radio signals that helped fool the Germans into believing the D-Day invasion would take place in Norway or the Pas-de-Calais region of France—rather than on the beaches of Normandy.

So why didn’t we find out about these patriots sooner? They were all sworn to secrecy. They couldn’t tell anyone what they were doing. And it was only recently that the book entitled, Code Girls: The Untold Story of the American Women Code Breakers of World War II was published.

Now here is the most interesting tidbit about the story of the women code breakers. From Liz Mundy, the book’s author:

After the war, the Army and Navy code-breaking operations merged to become what is now the National Security Adminstration (NSA) — and it was women who helped found the field of clandestine eavesdropping, and in many cases who shaped the early culture of the NSA.

So now you know about the little-known history of our WW II women code breakers.

Anti-Trump West Point Grad Makes SICK Threat Before Army-Navy Game – Pissed Cadets Make Him Pay

Published

on

Thanks to 8 years of Barack Hussein Obama infiltrating our White House, young people now think that Communism and Marxism is the hip new thing, where brainless millennials now openly celebrate the massacre of millions of innocents and the idiotically wear Che Guevara shirts, while lecturing the rest of us on concepts of “freedom” and “equality.” Obama fanboy and West Point graduate Spenser Rapone made headlines several months ago after outing himself as hardcore Communist, where he expressed extreme anti-American views and decided to write “Communism will win” on the inside of his hat, plastering the image all over social media.

Ever since being ousted as a Communist and an enemy of our country, this West Point graduate has been constantly taking to social media to vomit his extremist views into the universe. He openly called Defense James Mattis “the most “evil, vile f***”, and called for political violence against the right, referring to President Trump as a “fascist.” Rapone also attacked Vice President Mike Pence in a tweet from August: “Holy s*** what world do these people live in? “Mediocre and conservative?” Pence is a fucking medieval, cold-blooded killer.”

For reasons that defy all logic, not only was the newly-commissioned officer allowed to stay in the military, but will now go on to command military units as an officer, indoctrinating Soldiers with the very same views that our government put people to death for during war during the Cold War. While being a Communist might be acceptable behavior at West Point in the year 2017, this Communist punk was never prepared for the nasty surprise he got over the weekend during the Army-Navy game, that no doubt has his Che Guevara boxers in a gigantic wad.

Even though West Point appears to have low standards for the officers they’re commissioning, thankfully, most young people in our military don’t share these same views, and Navy cadets over the weekend wanted to ensure that the communist scumbag got the message loud and clear that communism will never be accepted behavior in our military.

“Midshipmen from the Naval Academy taunted their West Point cadet rivals at the Army-Navy Game in Philadelphia on Saturday with chants and signs mocking them over avowed communist 2nd Lt. Spenser Rapone. Rapone is a 2016 West Point grad who posted photos of himself in uniform with messages promoting communism,” The Gateway Pundit reported. “The signs which said, “Communism Won’t Win” and “NOT COMMUNIST” were posted to Twitter by Marine vet Julio Rosas who is a staffer with the Independent Journal Review and by an unaffiliated viewer.”

It’s good to see our future officers taking a stand against communism and openly mocking Rapone as he seeks to indoctrinate others with his extreme anti-American sentiments. According to a source who counseled Rapone for his social media activity, he revealed  there are “almost certainly” other cadets who either held or still hold similar views to the avowed Communist.

It’s inconceivable that someone who has openly expressed such hostile views towards our President and towards our government would be allowed keep their commission in the military. Senator Marco Rubio has been on a warpath in recent weeks to get the officer’s commission revoked, where he requested that the United States Army “immediately nullify Rapone’s commission and pursue all available disciplinary options under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.”

“I respectfully request the United States Army immediately nullify Rapone’s commission and pursue all available disciplinary options under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Rapone should be required to pay back in full the cost of his education and the United States Military Academy should consider revoking his degree,” Senator Rubio’s letter reads.

“It is extremely concerning that someone who so often expressed such hostile views towards the United States’ system of government was able to obtain a commission,” Senator Rubio continued, referencing 2LT Rapone’s anti-American social media postings. “Rapone’s revolutionary ideas were harbored long before he was commissioned as an Army Second Lieutenant. Were West Point administrators or faculty aware of his views and behavior?”

What the hell is going on in our military where it’s now acceptable behavior for our military leaders to openly oppose our government and call for violence for the very same Commander-in-Chief that they’ve sworn an oath to? Are we really so weak as a country that political correctness is now the key factor in every decision made by our leaders? Just 5 years ago, this idiot would’ve been tossed out on his ear, and prosecuted with every single disciplinary action possible under UCMJ for his communist views. Now this idiot will not only get off scot-free, but now will be allowed to command military units, while making decisions through the lens of his Communist goals for our country, while throwing the message in our faces that “communism will win.”

Thank Our Military Servicemen And Women But Praise Our Heroes

Chuck Yarling

Published

on

With the continuing wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other places across the globe, well-meaning citizens are increasingly calling all of our military servicemen and women as well as veterans: heroes.

One could draw an argument that this began with President Bush and the beginning of these current conflicts after the voracious attack by Muslim extremists on 9/11. As a veteran, President Bush visited the troops in the field during unannounced trips and continued his actions by visiting wounded military men and women in the hospital – again without the press.

Without a doubt, this overt display of patriotism by the American public is something that we see more frequently now that President Trump is in office. Indeed, the former candidate and now president, has made it a mission of his to keep his and America’s attention on our military.

Most Americans appreciate Trump’s actions. However, it is now obvious that too many people, pundits, and even military organizations are calling all active duty military as well as veterans “heroes”. Many of us veterans think the word reduces the significance of those whose actions have proven themselves to actually be heroes.

Perhaps this comes from one of the definitions of a hero. Dictionary.com defines hero as

A person who, in the opinion of others, asspecial achievements, abilities, or personal qualities and is regarded as a role model or ideal. 

However, take a look at a second definition of a hero from Dictionary.com:

A person noted for courageous acts or nobility of character.

Please don’t get misunderstand: our soldiers really appreciate your kind gestures and appreciation. Indeed, please feel free to thank them for their service, dedication to their mission, and let them know that you appreciate the sacrifice they are making to their personal and their families lives by choosing to serve our country. However, be aware that the definition of a hero should be anyone who has performed a courageous act of valor for someone else without regard for his or her own safety or life.

For instance, consider those firefighters who entered the smoking buildings of the twin towers in New York City right after the attacks by Muslim jihadists. How about the passengers on Flight 93 who intentionally fought off their attackers resulting in its crashing in a Pennsylvania field, all of whom perished because of their actions?

Then, of course, there are those courageous servicemen and women about whom you’ve read of their receiving the Silver Star or Medal of Honor medals. These are the highest medals available to be given by our military. All of these people deserve to be called heroes!

President Trump recently called veterans ”This Country’s Greatest National Treasure”. This is a perfect description that many of us veterans easily accept.

Just remember: when our military men and women go about the job to which they committed themselves, they are not heroes and they will gladly accept your thanks for their service. However, many of us do ask that you lavish your praise upon our true heroes.

They’re the ones that really deserve it!
