t just got easier to get into the Army. Now aspiring soldiers without graduations under their belts can still hang government-issued Sig Sauer M17s from them. reports that the U.S. Army is dropping its requirement for enlistees to possess either a high school diploma or GED certificate. This comes, per the outlet, amid an “escalating recruiting crisis.” On Thursday, the service announced that individuals may enlist without those previously required education certifications if they ship to basic training this fiscal year, which ends Oct. 1. To be clear, entrants still have to take a test: Recruits must also be at least 18 years old and otherwise qualify for a job in the active-duty Army.


Great idea, Joe. Just keep lowering the bar. What could go wrong?

It's getting scary. I have heard about 70% of age appropriate recruits are not suitable for service. They are either physically or mentally incapable of military service.

If we recognize the military is being run by wokesters, what do you think our enemies are thinking? My goodness, why not just run up the white flag and be done with it. No one wants to enlist and the men in officer training are being indoctrinated to care more about pronouns than caring about winning wars. This is absolute madness and beyond dangerous and irresponsible. And it all began with the boy king.

My controller is a retired Marine bird col. He used to help with recruiting. Recruiting with core recruits — the guys like him (and me to a less degree) who sign up because of love of country and who are eager to protect it — are off by 90+%. They don’t want to serve in the woke military. They don’t want to go to classes where whites are told they are evil because of our skin color. They don’t support socialism.

The demographic well is drying up. Americans have had enough with contrived crises and interventions that turn into decades-long commitments to people who fail to return the favor defending themselves (NATO being a PRIME example) and eschew the "freedom" we try to install within their society (Middle East and Central Asia).

There was a time, long ago, when actor Alec Baldwin was actually entertaining. His performance as a main character in the classic 1988 comedy Beetlejuice was solid, though Michael Keaton stole the show in that film. And Baldwin was adequate in the movies Hunt for Red October in 1990 and Glengarry Glen Ross in 1992. He was even decent in the terrific drama The Departed in 2006. Indeed, Baldwin had been blessed with good looks and enough talent to make himself a wealthy man with a robust career. But as we’ve seen with so many actors – consider Robert DeNiro, Susan Sarandon, and Sean Penn as examples – Baldwin’s onscreen success

The man who masterminded both successful presidential campaigns for former President Obama, strategist David Axelrod, has harsh words for the current Commander-in-Chief saying, “There is this sense that things are kind of out of control and he’s not in command.” Appearing on CNN’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper” Thursday, he added, “so, you know, this is a very, very fraught environment for him right now.” The first question that pops into my mind is, does this have Obama’s blessing? It’s hard to imagine that Axelrod, now a CNN commentator, would criticize the Democratic Party’s standard-bearer without running it first by his former boss.

Wednesday’s episode of the Laura Ingraham show on Fox News brought you the story of a new Disney+ series called Baymax, where a male-voiced robot at a supermarket asks a surprised female customer what menstrual products she suggests. Several others shoppers join in to help with recommendations, including from what all appearances is a male with a trans flag on his shirt. Ingraham points out that “Disney+’s only warning for the show is about flashing white sequences and patterns,” but gives no warning about the embedded trans ideology. My kids are older now, but I doubt I’d be thrilled at them viewing this when they were 5 years old.

There are certain voting blocs on which the two major political parties rely heavily. For Republicans, it’s not only critical that they have the support of Evangelical Christians and non-college-educated white men, but they also need them to be energized and head to the polls. Similarly, the Democrats count on black and Hispanic Americans along with college-educated white women, and failure to secure strong majorities in those demographics can destroy their chances. But then there are the battleground demographics which are often in battleground states. While Democrats have already seen a devasting and consistent downward trend with Hispanics – one of those aforementioned key constituencies which are currently showing even less

But as happy an occasion as this may seem to many, it was also a sad and tragic day that gave way to images of far too many extremely young women raging against the ruling and revealing just how deeply they had been

Disney may have grown relatively quiet after a reported backlash over Florida’s so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill, but the company isn’t losing steam where LGBT support is concerned. The Mouse recently released its animated Lightyear to less than bountiful box office acclaim, and some might suggest one factor against the film was its same-sex kiss. Disney had cut the scene but reinstalled it after its showdown with Ron DeSantis. Nonetheless, its next animated project may sport more Rainbow radiance than ever before: Strange World will include a gay teen romance. Matthieu Saghezchi — Emmy-winning animation production designer — caught a glimpse of the movie while attending France’s Annecy 2022 International Film Festival.

Consider the date of July 14, 2000, and what the world was like on that day: Bill and Hillary Clinton were still in the White House, doing heaven-knows-what. The Twin Towers in lower Manhattan were still standing tall, with very few Americans having ever heard of Al Qaeda. And innovations such as smartphones, Uber, and iPods were only available in our imaginations. Overall, it was a relatively non-descript, summer day almost twenty-two years ago, but July 14, 2000, is indeed memorable this reason: It is the last time CNN experienced ratings as pathetic as they did last Friday.

If the mainstream media is indeed merely a pseudo communications department of the Democratic Party – which it is – then CNN is the co-chair of that department, with MSNBC as the other. There is no outlet in America’s corrupt collection of leftwing media that better serves as a Democrat cheerleader than CNN, though MSNBC occasionally gives them a run for their money. Therefore, a question: How bad must the situation be in order for CNN to not only report on bad news for President Joe Biden and his party – which is itself highly unusual – but to also accurately interpret that news and offer a reasonable opinion?

Bruen. After an extraordinary session for the explicit purpose of defying the Court, Senate Bill S51001 was rammed through on a party-line vote by the Democratic supermajority, passed the Assembly, and received the signature of Gov.
