Original Article

The Department of Defense inspector general is launching a review of the Pentagon's and White House's ability to keep the "nuclear football" secure during a crisis, following an incident on January 6 when rioters came within 100 feet of the backup "football." The inspector general will evaluate the policies and procedures around the Presidential Emergency Satchel, also known as the "nuclear football," in the event that it is "lost, stolen, or compromised," according to an announcement from the DoD IG's office. The "nuclear football" stays close to the president at all times. There is a backup "football" that stays close to the vice president in the event that the president is unable


So the DoD - Austin, Milley et al, are concerned about the nuclear football...

What a bunch of fabricated melodrama. Austin and Milley should be more concerned about the mental midget decision makers rather than the football, which never leaves its custodian's possession.

Isn't the "nuclear football" with the President and his team. Were they not far away from the January 6 incident? Even if they did manage to get a hold of the case, they do not have or know the nuclear codes. Gen. Milley is sure good at keeping his name in the news to keep himself politically relevant. Is he doing this to make sure that he is not a part of Biden's purge of anyone remotely associated with the Trump administration? Milley is showing himself to be a political chameleon who will change his stripes to go along with whoever is in power. That is very dangerous; especially since he is in charge of the military.

Ohhhh puhleaaaassseeee. Spare us the drama. Everyone knows the "crisis, incident, insurrection" was totally manufactured and well planned in advance and set in motion to look like it was a bunch of rowdy violent out-of-control Trump-loving MAGA hat-wearing American flag waving patriots doing the evil deed. Save the drama for yo mama, ok.

I DO believe they are reviewing procedures involving the nuclear football, but I DON'T believe it is because of Jan. 6th. I think it is because we have a basically brain-dead moron in charge and they want to insure that he cannot do any damage by accidentally pushing a wrong button when he means to summon his diaper changer, or order up some ice cream.

An old Russian operating room joke says: Did you know that in Russia tonsillectomies are done transrectally? No, why? People are afraid to open their mouths! Sadly, this joke could be describing the new America. What has happened? Why have we collectively lost our minds? And what has COVID-19 got to do with it? While Americans have been asleep at the wheel, the power brokers were manipulating us into constant societal unrest, with dwindling individual liberties and growing dependency on the government and big corporations.

An internet survey by a non-partisan physicians’ association found that most respondents have not been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or plan to get the shot. In the June 16 online survey by the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) in Tuscon, Arizona, nearly 60 percent of over 700 both retired and practicing physicians said they were not fully vaccinated and would decline the shots based on their assessment of risk. “This contrasts with the claim by the American Medical Association that 96 percent of practicing physicians are fully vaccinated. This was based on 300 respondents,” the AAPS stated in a press release.While neither survey represents a random sample of all

As we discussed last week, “critical race theory” is a subtle philosophical construct where the answer to everything is: THAT’S RACIST! Teachers hawking this glop are being defended by their journalist allies, who sneer that CRT critics are too stupid to understand the nuances of the theory. The Aristotelian ideal of this sneer was Elle Reeve’s “special report” for CNN — pre-taped to eliminate any danger of Elle being contradicted by someone smarter, such as a 10-year-old. CNN’s Brianna Keilar introduced the segment by asking her: “Do these vocal opponents of critical race theory actually understand fully what it is?” (That’s what’s known as a “rhetorical question,” kids!)

Joe Biden repeatedly struggled to collect his thoughts during a CNN town hall event Wednesday night as he attempted he to address a number of important issues with host Don Lemon. Over and over, Biden babbled incoherently as Lemon politely nodded his head as if in agreement with Biden’s inscrutable gibberish. Biden’s town hall took place in a half-filled auditorium at Mount St. Joseph University in Cincinnati, Ohio. When asked about when children under 12 will be eligible to be vaccinated against COVID-19, Biden delivered a mind-boggling word salad in response. “That’s underway, just like the other question that’s illogical, and I’ve heard you speak about it because you always—I’m not being solicitous—

In the old days, Democrats had predictable agendas, supposedly focused on individual rights, the “little guy,” and distrust of the military-industrial-intelligence complex. The Left, often on spec, blasted the wealthy, whether the “lucre” was self-made or inherited. The old-money rich were lampooned as idle drones. If the rich were self-made, they were deemed sell-outs. A good example was ’70s pop icon Jackson Brown’s “The Pretender,” whose lyrics railed about “happy idiots” who “struggled for the legal tender.” Democrats talked nonstop about the “working man.” They damned high gas and electricity prices that hurt “consumers.”(Snip)That was then; this is now.

President Joe Biden’s administration is weighing the idea of more mask mandates for Americans during the coronavirus pandemic — even if they are vaccinated, according to a report published Wednesday. Details of the masking discussions were reported by the Washington Post. The White House is weighing these options as the “Delta variant” of the virus is spreading, even among the vaccinated. The report noted that federal health officials are considering whether they would update masking guidance, asking all Americans to wear masks indoors in public places.

As summer reaches peak heat, a recent piece in Time magazine on air conditioning exemplifies the rot pervading academia and threatening the nation. Eric Dean Wilson, an instructor and graduate student at City University of New York, wrote about how air conditioning will destroy the planet. His essay demonstrates the confluence of such intellectually fashionable ideas as environmentalist extremism, critical race theory, equity, and the condemnation of capitalism and “white supremacy.” Wilson has no training in climate science or mechanical engineering. Yet he teaches “climate-themed writing and environmental justice” at the City University of New York. Wilson describes his recent book

Failing the pandemic test, as World Health Organization Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus believes the world is, means even countries with high vaccination rates could once again find themselves back where they were in March 2020. Ghebreyesus has long advocated for high-income countries to help fill inequities in health care by sharing vaccine doses with other countries' most vulnerable populations. Focusing on a country's own people and not the world's population allows for more mutations of the virus to pop up and in a global world, a deadly variant in one place poses a threat to everywhere.
