West Point Celebrates Its Glorious Beginnings

It is the oldest continuously operating Army post in the United States. And it is unquestionably the most important training ground for American military leaders.When Thomas Jefferson set in motion the establishment of a national military academy in 1801, he did so to solve a problem. America was about to begin its westward expansion and needed to train an army of engineers. And it was armies that trained and developed the engineering talent of the day. It didn’t take long for Congress to act, passing a bill authorizing the establishment and funding of the school with the Military Peace Establishment

Sorry West Point, you get a LOT of demerits for that sickening freak Army 2nd Lt. Spenser Rapone. Because lawyers I realize the Army has to walk a thin line, but it wasn´t that long ago that there wouldn´t have been a second wasted bouncing a punk who writes ´Communism will win´ inside his dress uniform cap, and who wears a Che Guevara T shirt under his uniform at West Point.

He graduated and is serving at Fort Drum, NY right now. If the Army doesn´t dishonorably discharge this seditious moron, maybe his fellow soldiers will throw him a blanket party. I really feel for other patriots serving under him who are expected to take orders from such a slug.

Indeed, I grieve over the state to which my beloved WP has descended, and the other Academies as well. The descent can be traced directly to the Obama admin, beginning with Clinton, lefties just couldn´t wait to attack the national institutions and "convert" them to their evil behavior. Abetted by weak admin and Officers more interested in career than Duty, Honor, Country. Many not even grads.
I pray, hope deeply the turn will begin with PDT, frustrated canno´t influence for the better despite my MG rank won´t let me/others near place.May duty be well performed, honor be neer ´tarnedour country ever armed, West Point by Thee.

Politico: Kamala Harris, 2020 Presidential
Contender, is a Mystery in California
Breitbart California, by Joel B. Pollak    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/20/2018 11:45:30     Post Reply
First-term Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is emerging as a Democratic presidential contender in 2020. However, according to Politico, her own voters in California do not really know much about her. In an article titled “Kamala Harris’ rapid rise confounds California,” Politico’s David Siders writes: Kamala Harris has been called “the female Barack Obama.” She’s built a national following with her outspoken criticism of Donald Trump and prolific fundraising for fellow Democrats. But the California senator’s rapid rise — she’s just 15 months into her first term — has created an awkward issue: Even as progressives tout her as one of

Donald Trump’s long-planned visit to Britain is back on, the Mail can reveal today. In a major boost to relations between London and Washington, the US President is expected to come to the UK for several days this summer. A senior Whitehall source said dates in mid-July were ‘pencilled in’ the diary, with July 14 the favourite. Mr Trump is expected to hold talks with Theresa May either in No 10 or at Chequers. He could also meet the Queen or other senior members of the Royal Family, even though it is not a state visit. Officials will be keen to

Former President George H.W. Bush sat next to his wife Barbara Bush´s coffin on Friday in Houston, greeting mourners who came to pay their respect to his late wife. Barbara and George were married for 73-years. She passed away on Tuesday at the age of 92, with her husband by her side.

A Fresno State professor who called the late Barbara Bush “racist” soon after her death Tuesday, and said she was glad “the witch is dead,” continues to face fallout as donors mull ceasing donations to the institution. Randa Jarrar, an English professor at the school (also known as California State University at Fresno), sparked outrage Tuesday just hours after the former first lady died at age 92, writing a number of tweets attacking Bush and the family. “Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal.

A California school district says that parents can’t opt out of a new sex education course that will deal with abortion, homosexuality and transgender issues. California passed a law called the California Healthy Youth Act in 2015 to promote “healthy attitudes” about “gender [and] sexual orientation.” The law is meant to teach students about the “effectiveness and safety of all FDA-approved contraceptive methods” and allow for “objective discussion” about “parenting, adoption, and abortion.” The law also gives parents the ability to opt-out of this education and said that the “pupil” shall not be punished academically in any way if they don’t

CNN’s Anderson Cooper must believe that attacking Fox News host Sean Hannity is a sure-fire ratings bonanza, as he was at it again on Thursday when he slammed his rival for taking part in what Cooper described as “a coordinated smear campaign” against Special Counsel Robert Mueller and former FBI Director James Comey. “When you’re not interested in facts you can blame folks for anything,” Cooper said, after naming Hannity, who shares the same time slot. “But they might do a better job of checking their dates and getting their story straight.” The slam came after Cooper ran clips of

Various reports in American and South Korean state media Friday evening indicated that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un announced the halt of nuclear and missile tests in his country. The reports did not specify whether the tests would conclude permanently. The South Korean newswire service Yonhap reports that the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) published the announcement from Kim, which read, “from April 21, North Korea will stop nuclear tests and launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles.” “The North will shut down a nuclear test site in the country’s northern side to prove the vow to suspend

On Thursday night the much anticipated Comey memos were finally released by the DOJ to Congress. The memos show that Comey has not been honest with the public about his meetings with Trump. The memos also show that Comey likely broke the law. In one exchange Comey told Trump that CNN was pressuring him about the anti-Trump dossier. Chuck Ross at The Daily Caller reported:Former FBI Director James Comey wrote in a newly released memo that pressure from news outlets — “CNN in particular” — convinced him to brief then-President-Elect Donald Trump on the infamous Steele dossier during a meeting

Book: In Private, Hillary Would Always Say

Hillary Clinton was infamous for referring to many of President Trump’s supporters as “deplorable” during a speech in September 2016. A new book reports that it wasn’t a one-time thing — in private, Clinton referred to Trump supporters as deplorable many times. The Daily Beast reports that a new book about Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign from New York Times reporter Amy Chozick states that Clinton joked about Trump supporters being deplorable many times with her rich friends. “Hillary always broke down Trump supporters into three baskets,” Chozick said, saying that one third of them were deplorable racists and sexists.

A plurality of voters, a full 42 percent, believe that the book written by disgraced former FBI Director James Comey is a “politically motivated attack on the president,” according to a poll released by Rasmussen Reports. Despite glowing press coverage 24/7 over the last week, an anemic 40 percent believe Comey’s book is an “accurate portrayal of his dealings with Trump.” Nineteen percent remain undecided. This terrible number comes on the heels of a poll from earlier this week that showed a plurality of 46 percent want Comey prosecuted for leaking classified information. In other words, a plurality of voters

President Donald Trump kept up his war of words with James Comey on Friday, calling the former FBI director’s new book “third rate,” and suggesting it’s unfair that Comey is profiting. "So General Michael Flynn’s life can be totally destroyed while Shadey James Comey can Leak and Lie and make lots of money from a third rate book (that should never have been written)," Trump said in a Twitter posting. "Is that really the way life in America is supposed to work? I don’t think so!" Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty in December to lying to

The Democratic National Committee filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit Friday against the Russian government, the Trump campaign and the WikiLeaks organization alleging a far-reaching conspiracy to disrupt the 2016 campaign and tilt the election to Donald Trump. The complaint, filed in federal district court in Manhattan, alleges that top Trump campaign officials conspired with the Russian government and its military spy agency to hurt Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and help Trump by hacking the computer networks of the Democratic Party and disseminating stolen material found there. “During the 2016 presidential campaign, Russia launched an all-out assault on our democracy, and it found

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently told the White House he might have to leave his job if President Trump fired his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange. Sessions made his position known in a phone call to White House counsel Donald McGahn last weekend, as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s raid April 9 on the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen. Sessions’s message to the White House, which has not previously been reported, underscores the political firestorm

“If the Trumps were Democrats,” conservative actor James Woods tweeted earlier this month, “Melania would be on every cover of every chic women’s magazine in the world every month.” Woods may be exaggerating a little bit — only Oprah can put herself on the cover of a magazine every month, and it’s her own magazine — but he does make an interesting point. First Lady Melania Trump has not graced the cover of a single magazine in the United States since her husband took office over a year ago. Michelle Obama, on the other hand, was featured on at least thirty

Stone´s comments come after he posted an initial statement on Instagram where he tore into the former first lady following her death.

“No one in modern politics, male or female, has had to withstand more indignities, setbacks and cynicism. She developed protective armor that made the real Hillary Clinton an enigma. But if she was guarded about her feelings and opinions, she believed it was in careful pursuit of a dream for generations of Americans: the election of the country’s first woman president.” That would have been the nut graf of The New York Times story about Hillary Clinton’s historic victory that would have run under the headline “Madam President” spread across six front-page columns, according to reporter Amy Chozick’s new book,

The past 12 hours brought two very big revelations involving former FBI director James B. Comey, President Trump and the Russia investigation, and they must be looked at side by side to fully grasp their collective importance. Comey’s memos of his conversations with Trump have leaked in full. This came after Republicans threatened to subpoena them from Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, leading him to release them to Congress. Comey confirmed to Rachel Maddow that before getting fired, he ordered an internal investigation into whether Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani had been privately tipped off by people in the FBI two weeks

Former New York mayor Rudolph W.

New York set aside $10 million for the legal defense of immigrants targeted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement just days after ICE announced the arrest of hundreds of people in the state. The Liberty Defense Project will ensure legal rights are being represented, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. It was launched last year, but it needs the additional funds in light of what state officials described as “overly aggressive tactics” from ICE. “ICE’s hyper-aggressive raids on hardworking New Yorkers are immoral and un-New York, and we stand more determined than ever to support the rights of all immigrants in the Empire State

Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, introduced legislation Wednesday aimed at dissuading President Trump from pardoning people involved in the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. The bill, called the Abuse of Pardon Prevention Act, comes on the heels of Trump’s pardon for Scooter Libby, the former chief of staff to former Vice President Dick Cheney who was convicted of lying to the FBI and obstruction of justice. Schiff’s legislation discourages the president from pardoning a person in connection to an investigation in which the president or a family member is a target,

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court says Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s left shoulder break is worse than was first thought, though the 63-year-old justice expects to be on the bench when the court hears its last six arguments of the term next week. The court says Sotomayor will cut back on travel following the reassessment of her injury, which is a fracture of the ball joint in her left shoulder. She hurt herself in a fall at home on Monday. Sotomayor has maintained a busy speaking schedule since the publication of her best-selling memoir, “The World and Me,” in 2013. She had
