More than 100 lawmakers are urging the U.S. Department of Defense to immediately end the military ban on transgender troops put in place by the Trump administration in 2019. On Wednesday, Rep. Suzan DelBene, a Democrat from Washington, joined by 116 members of Congress, signed a letter addressed to Secretary of Defense Mark Esper and Attorney General William Barr calling to the end of the policy, which they called “an attack on transgender service members who are risking their lives to serve our country.” The move comes just weeks after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964

A demographic with a 40% suicide rate might work in Imperial Japan's kamikaze program or wearing glittery bomb belts in a peaceful Islamic nation. But provided they sport the Homosexual Pride flag and not the Confederate battle flag, I suppose they'd be welcomed in the US Woke Forces too.

First, commitment. Slice, dice, drugs before enlistment. Second...all treatments and drugs while in service are private pay. Then, possibly.

There are no circumstances where mentally ill people should be in the US military. It's as simple as that.

who are the idiots who write this dribble. not one mention in the article of Republican participation. the fact is that there can be no breakdown in discipline in the military forces, due to the gender preference of each individual soldier, sailor, airman, marine and coast guardsman. unit integrity depends on each member of the unit believing that he or she will follow orders as given by the unit commander. no equivocating!! it's as simple as that. this type of behaviour brings about unit disruption and cannot be tolerated. the military has its own laws know as the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

These service members are risking OUR lives to serve in the military because of their liability to blackmail or worse. Don't ask what is worse than that unless you really want to know.

Someone who is on maintenance drugs (hormone therapy in this case) is non-deployable, because they cannot guarantee getting their drugs to them in a combat zone. Nobody who would be non-deployable from day one can join the military. That only makes sense.

Twitter said it suspended dozens of accounts associated with the Identitarian movement, a white nationalist ideology whose adherents oppose multiculturalism in Europe. More than 50 accounts connected to the movement were suspended from the social media service Friday after the publication of a report about its proliferation on the platform, NBC News first reported Friday.(Snip) Identitarian groups including Generation Identity, which started in France and has spread across the Atlantic, are “rampant” on platforms such as Twitter, the report said, adding that adherents to the so-called “Great Replacement”—a conspiracy theory at the center of the ideology which essentially purports White are being replaced

St. Louis County, Mo.—While one mother is thanking an off-duty St. Louis sheriff’s deputy for saving her son’s life, another mother is wondering if he had to kill hers to do so. It happened Monday morning in north St. Louis County while a man and his grandson were waiting for their food in a McDonald’s drive-thru just before 7 a.m. Suddenly a man, later identified by police as William Burgess, 27, attacked them with a screwdriver as they sat in their truck, said Sara Buck, whose 10-year-old son and 67-year-old father were the victims.

The federal government has denied Gov. Tim Walz’s request for aid to help rebuild and repair Twin Cities structures that were damaged in the unrest following George Floyd’s death. Walz asked President Donald Trump to declare a “major disaster” for the state of Minnesota in his request to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on July 2. More than 1,500 buildings were damaged by fires, looting and vandalism in the days of unrest that followed Floyd’s May 25 death in Minneapolis police custody, racking up more than $500 million in damages, according to Walz.(Snip) Many small businesses and grocery stores, pharmacies and

North Korean soldiers are feeling hare-ied by a recent request by military authorities to start breeding more rabbits—15 of them to be exact, according to a new report. The directive from the Ministry of People’s Armed Forces came down June 7 ordering soldiers and their families to raise more bunnies to eat, including some that are at least 7.7 pounds, Daily NK reported. The military’s politiburo, the General Political Bureau, is billing the new order as a way to boost the country’s meat supply in an inexpensive way—as part of Kim Jong Un’s order to raise more grass-eating animals.

However, Mr Trump would win in the electoral college system by 309 to 229 delegates because he is on course to win the crucial swing states including Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin where he outpolls Vice President Biden by 48 percent to 44 percent.The findings come as the US President went to the iconic Mount Rushmore to make a speech attacking “the angry mobs” who want to erase America’s history.
