Tesla and Twitter CEO Elon Musk ripped the Department of Defense on Sunday after it tweeted that “diversity is a strategic imperative.” The DOD tweeted on Saturday, “Diversity is a strategic imperative critical to mission readiness and accomplishment. We were on site for the 2023 inaugural [Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion] Summit as DEIA experts led forums to advance the DEIA and DoD mission — because our people matter.” Musk responded, “Your strategic imperative is defending the United States.” The summit, according to an earlier tweet, took place February 15-17, and featured “distinguished presenters, renowned experts in government, higher education, business, science, and technology.”

Am I the only one who loves Elon? I know he is an odd bird, and there are a couple of questionable policy issues. But overall, he’s great.

We have unserious leaders running the military...hence we shoot down balloons with $400,000 missiles and surrender $83 billion in equipment to a motorcycle gang in Afghanistan

We had diversity in the military until Biden and his military genius's started with this CRT BS and turned people who got along fine against each other. President Truman integrated the military and for years black and white have fought our wars together. People got promoted on merit and time served, then we started filling it with women in combat roles and Homosexuals and paying for transgenders. Crazed Rules of engagement, and now using $400,000 dollar missile to shoot down a $99 dollar balloon. I tell you now we are in trouble if we don't get some decent Generals and flag Officers and a president with a functional mind, who doesn't cater to every sort of jerk off idea presented .

Musk is fantastic. He is spot on about the strategic imperative of our military. It's been taken over by nuts and fruits and it's being dismantled from the greatest fighting force the world has ever seen to a social services agency. Too bad we can't vote for him as president. I have no doubt he could drain the swamp AND rebuild the military.

The two woke bird brains at the DoD Austin and Milley don't give a rip about defending my beloved country from dirtbag regimes like China, Russia and Iran. They only care about having gender neutral heads (restrooms) in Marine barracks, Heather has two ugly mommies Army recruiting videos, flight suits for 8-month pregnant FA/18 Air Force pilots, male Navy sailors wearing man buns and White Rage in the Coast Guard. I'm glad that Elon Musk is sticking to idiots like the two mentioned and others in the Brandon regime.

Biden administration diplomats are trying to block a U.K. plan that would see Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) designated as a terror group, despite the fact that the U.S. took similar steps during the Trump administration. The U.S. State Department, which is currently trying to revive the defunct Iran Nuclear deal, believes that the U.K. can play a key role as interlocutors and fears that role would be undermined by designating the IRGC a terror group, according to a new report from The Telegraph. The move would harden the U.K.’s position against Iran and deal a blow to international talks, supported by the Biden administration,

A top lieutenant of the Proud Boys’ chairman, Enrique Tarrio, described on Wednesday a growing desperation among the group’s leaders as Jan. 6, 2021, approached and then-President Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the election results sputtered. That’s when the group’s thoughts turned to “all-out revolution,” according to Jeremy Bertino, the Justice Department’s star witness in the seditious conspiracy trial of Tarrio and four other Proud Boys leaders, who are charged with orchestrating a violent attempt to derail the transfer of power from Trump to Joe Biden. Bertino, who pleaded guilty to his own seditious conspiracy charge last year, gave jurors an insider’s view of the Proud Boys’ leadership as Jan. 6

The special counsel overseeing a criminal investigation of former President Donald Trump has issued subpoenas to Trump's daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner, according to a new report. The subpoenas by special counsel Jack Smith, which demand the couple's testimony before a grand jury, are related to his probe of Trump's efforts to remain in the White House after losing the 2020 election to President Joe Biden and the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol, The New York Times reported. Both Ivanka Trump and Kushner served as senior White House advisors to the former president.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott participated in a roundtable discussion on the border crisis Tuesday in the Rio Grande Valley. He warned illegal immigrants not to try to cross into the United States through Texas. And he addressed the fact that he is not satisfied with the penalties for smugglers. Smugglers are often recruited through social media postings to drive illegal immigrants to cities that are located hours from the border. “If you’re coming toward the United States of America and you’re thinking about crossing our border, and you’re thinking about making your border crossing into the state of Texas, you’re picking the wrong state to enter into,” the governor said.

The letter was sent to NewsGuild of New York president Susan DeCarava, taking her to task for suggesting that the paper’s coverage of transgender issues — including the adverse effects of hormonal and surgical intervention and the recent dramatic increase in gender dysphoria in girls — might have created a “hostile” workplace. “Factual, accurate journalism that is written, edited, and published in accordance with Times standards

The Biden administration released a new rule Tuesday that largely bars migrants who traveled through other countries on their way to the US-Mexico border from applying for asylum in the United States, marking a departure from decadeslong protocol. The new 153-page proposed regulation, which could affect tens of thousands of people, is the most restrictive of a patchwork of policies put in place by the Biden administration to try and manage the US-Mexico border and is reminiscent of a Trump-era policy. The proposed rule would presume asylum ineligibility and "encourage migrants to avail themselves of lawful, safe, and orderly pathways into the United States, or otherwise to seek asylum or other protection

On Monday, Biden turned up in Kyiv to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, after taking a secret flight to a Polish border town and then a 10-hour train ride into Ukraine's capital city.

Middleton, 59, was found dead last May at the Heifer Ranch in Perryville, Arkansas, an hour west of Little Rock.   Release of the report was held up after members of his family petitioned a judge. They were worried that pictures from the gory scene would be made public.

As for math, across 53 schools, no students are proficient. The bulk of those underperforming campuses — twenty-two in the case of reading and thirty-three in the case of math — sit within the City of Chicago School District — where taxpayers annually spend between $5,929 and $56,311 per student.

The Ukrainians have not only held their own, but have managed to liberate a good chunk of their conquered territory. They’ve been buoyed tremendously by a constant influx of Western military aid. I argue here, against a small but vocal conservative faction, that we should continue this aid. There has been plenty of unhelpful hyperbole on both sides of the debate. Prominent pro-Ukrainers have attempted to equate opposition to Ukrainian aid as opposition to democracy itself.

No wonder the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is so confident they can win a war against the United States.

For two full weeks an unsecured Department of Defense (DOD) server was leaking military emails online and no one noticed until Monday. The culprit was a so-called misconfiguration that left the server without a password. The server was loaded with files containing sensitive personnel information from the past several years, including a completed SF-86 questionnaire. A SF-86 personnel questionnaire has bountiful amounts of background information on security clearance holders valuable to enemies of America.

Once upon a time we mocked the Soviet Union for its gerontocracy. Aged party leaders, bundled up in overcoats and fur hats to the point of near-unrecognizability, would be wheeled out to sit, immobile, as parades passed or party congresses opened. Their withered, stale leadership was emblematic of the decaying USSR’s withered, stale ideology — and industrial base. But now the joke’s on us. A leading United States senator, Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), can’t seem to remember important things, like her just-taken vote on a judicial nominee and her just-announced retirement. “Did I vote for that?” she asked an aide Wednesday, moments after leaving the chamber.
