Retired U.S. Navy Commander Julianna Vida slammed one Republican Party lawmaker’s criticism of the Navy officially using a drag queen to boost recruitment for the military branch. In a statement provided to Fox News Digital this week, Vida said that Sen. Tommy Tuberville’s assessment that the Navy has become "preoccupied with identity politics" is "destructive" and "undermines" the Navy’s methods of recruiting new members. Vida, who was in the Navy for over 30 years and currently servers on the Naval Academy Alumni Association Board of Trustees, defended the Navy’s use of drag queen recruiting ads as a "critical" method of welcoming "traditionally excluded segments of our population."

When my dad and each of my brothers were in the Navy homosexuality was unlawful there. Later it became optional and legal. Now it is being encouraged. Get out before they make it mandatory!

I guess they don't come any dumber than this dame. No wonder recruitment is down in every branch. One only has to look at flat footed moron Austin and his CRT rubbish.

Men in dresses do not belong in our armed forces. Corporal Klinger only did it to get out on a Section 8. And he used the mens latrine.

The dismantling of our Military because it's much too masculine, and we all know how toxic that can be. The feminization of both men and armies will continue unabated by your hurtful complaints.

The Woke think only their opinion matters. She dismisses the opinions of those who disagree because they served in the past? "Traditionally excluded groups" were often excluded for good reasons, as the drag queen issue should make loud and clear. Look at the recruiting numbers, Commander Woke.

Building up deviancy by tearing normal down makes so much sense. NOT. Never has successfully worked, never will. Claiming, as in the article, they want to increase the ranks of excluded segments of our population has the unintended consequence of decreasing the ranks of those who would normally enlist.

I was in the fourth year of women at the Academies. Women made up 12% of total class. Now women make up from 30-40%. Please explain how so many women are superior to men who applied to the Academies. They are not. Selection criteria has changed to favor women and other selected sub groups and exclude straight White men.

A Florida couple has had their wedding upended after an Orange County hotel — set to take in migrants from New York City — abruptly canceled the rooms she booked for her guests, she told The Post. “We felt discarded, disappointed and angry that they just tossed us aside to make an extra dollar for the hotel.

Mifsud and Gary Moretti, 37, are both originally from New York, and plan to marry June 24 at Lippincott Manor in upstate Walkill, with 160 guests from throughout the country expected to attend, she said.

If you are a pro-life mom, you may be a domestic terrorist. That’s according to the Biden Administration. New documents uncovered by America First Legal shows the Department of Homeland Security considers middle-aged pro-life moms to be potential domestic terror threats. “This is Ann, a resident of Elkville in rural America,” one profile reads. “Ann has always been religious but since the death of her mother, she’s become increasingly devout. She’s a regular in the small-town community, active in several church groups. While she has always been protective of her four kids, she has become increasingly more concerned about the welfare of other children including the unborn.”

Skyline Wesleyan Church, located in the San Diego area, Foothill Church in Glendora, Calvary Chapel Chino Hills in Chino, and The Shepherd of the Hills Church filed two separate lawsuits with Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) in 2015 and 2016 after the Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC) sent emails to insurance providers in the state, mandating that their coverage include abortion services.

You can have all the facts on your side and still lose an argument. How? Because the other side is not bound by facts, they’re arguing emotion, and emotion always overrides facts. It sounds stupid, it is stupid, but it’s also true. Think about the things you’ve apologized for in your life – I’d give you odds it was for things you said in the heat of the moment, not after thinking about the situation in a cool, rational way. That emotion factor is a big part of why Republicans always seem to get rolled when it comes to policy debates, but it’s not the only reason.

A man is a woman simply because he says so in their “reality.” In that world, there is no inflation or disaster at the border. The border is “secure” and Joe Biden has built the strongest economy in years. Just ignore the fact that inflation is costing us hundreds more dollars a month under Joe.This is why his approval rating is in the toilet. Most people live in reality even if Biden’s adherents don’t.
