US Army: We'll Solve Our Recruiting Woes

We’ve reported on the recruiting problems plaguing the United States armed forces. To put it bluntly, it hasn’t been going well. So what to do if you’re the U.S. Army? Stop with the focus on “woke” like DEI and transgender issues? Treat the military with respect? Nah. If you’re operating under the Biden administration, you simply cut your numbers. It’s easier than solving the problem. To wit, the Army on Tuesday released an “Army Force Structure Transformation” paper that announced a force reduction of 24,000 positions – roughly five percent of the force. Problem solved.


Taking a cue from ravaged blue cities. If crime is increasing, make fewer arrests so the stats improve.
Can't fill recruitment quotas? Reduce positions so you meet the marks.

Colonel: "We are 24,000 recruits short this year sir." General: "I can fix that." Kind of like Obama changing the definition of the word unemployed. If you stop looking for a job, you are not part of the unemployed.

‘Super Core’ Inflation Soared In January,
Worst In Nearly Two Years
11 replies
Posted by mc squared 2/29/2024 12:10:54 PM Post Reply
A key measure of inflation rose last month at the fastest pace since March of 2022. The personal consumption expenditure price index for services excluding housing and energy services—often called “super core” inflation—rose 0.6 percent in January. This inflation gauge rose this much in March of 2022, December of 2021, and in March of 2021. It is historically rare for this metric of inflation to rise at this high of a monthly pace. Prior to Biden’s presidency, it had only happened three times in this century, including a single month immediately following the 9/11 terror attacks. Before that, the measure had not jumped 0.6 percent since 1993.

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul knows she has spooked her state’s business community. That’s why she went on a talk show last week to calm their very legitimate fears that they would be next. If former President Donald Trump can be prosecuted and fined hundreds of millions of dollars for a common business practice, who is safe? Hochul said New Yorkers are generally “honest people, and they’re not trying to hide their assets and they’re following the rules… This judge determined that Donald Trump did not follow the rules.” Hence the $355 million fine levied by the court.

And it could come as early as this afternoon. After an in camera session with Terrence Bradley, Judge Scott McAfee ruled late last night that Nathan Wade's divorce attorney could not be shielded from testifying under a claim of attorney-client privilege. As a result, Bradley has to testify as to his personal knowledge about Wade's relationship wth Fani Willis. And given how hard Wade and Bradley fought to prevent this, one can presume that Bradley's story will line up better with the cell-phone records than the story told by Wade and Willis under oath:

Once again, Hollywood’s woketardery flamed out at the weekend box office, which is down -32 percent over this same weekend last year. All told, the box office grossed $64 million this weekend. That’s not what one movie earned this weekend. This is what ALL the movies earned. Oh, and guess what the only hit of the weekend is? Bob Marley: One Love. Despite terrible reviews, One Love has earned $72 million over two weeks.

If you've been paying any attention at all to the news for the past couple of years, you've no doubt heard about the increased levels of crime and violence in Chicago, along with so many other large, blue cities. At the same time, we've seen a disturbing rise in school shootings and other criminal activity in our public schools, with the Windy City's public schools additionally being overrun by the children of illegal migrants. Rushing to the rescue this week was Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson. His brilliant plan to address these concerns involves keeping a campaign promise he made while running for office.

The number of Chinese migrants who have crossed into California via the San Diego border with Mexico is now greater than the number of Mexican nationals who swarm into the progressive sanctuary state. Citing data obtained from Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Fox News reports that “Chinese nationals are the second-largest nationality encountered at the border in San Diego Sector since the fiscal year began in October.” “There have been 21,000 Chinese nationals encountered, second only to Colombia (28,000),” the data revealed. “Third is Mexican nationals with 18,700, followed by Brazil (8,700) and Ecuador (7,700). Other countries of origin include Turkey, Guinea, India, Guatemala and Peru.”

A pro-Ukraine group launched a six-figure ad buy in key districts in a bid to urge Republican members of Congress to push forward the supplemental legislation, which includes military aid for Ukraine, for a vote on the House floor. The minute-long spot from Republicans for Ukraine, “No Weakness in the Face of Aggression,” features lifelong party members across the country describing the importance of the United States’s continued support of Ukraine. In the ad, a Republican man from California says, “If we don’t support Ukraine, I fear China to potentially see that as a signal where they believe that they can invade their neighbors, too.”

New York Attorney General Letitia James is suing JBS USA, the world's largest producer of beef, over the company's emissions and for "greenwashing" by allegedly misleading the public about its environmental impact. In an announcement, James noted that beef production has the largest greenhouse gas footprint of any major food commodity and that animal agriculture accounts for 14.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions. According to James, JBS USA's various net-zero pledges for 2030 and 2040 are therefore misleading and "not feasible" given the scope of its worldwide beef production operations.

Anti-racism activists descended on Atlanta on Thursday to push lawmakers to back their $80 billion reparations package, warning of 'serious political consequences' if they don't greenlight the plan. Anqous Cosby with ReparationsPush and others want House politicians to create the Georgia Equity and Fairness Commission, which would devise a compensation package for the descendants of slaves. Republicans oppose the plan, saying it's not fair to single out one group for payments — especially when Georgia's cash-strapped hospitals are shuttering and the state's overcrowded prisons need more space.

“Do you believe in miracles?” Remember those words by sports broadcaster Al Michaels when the underdog US Hockey team won the Olympic Gold in the 1980 Winter Olympics. History has branded that game… “The Miracle on Ice.” See, in real life miracles do happen. We live in a negative, cynical world. Few of us really believe in miracles…and even fewer believe a miracle is happening, even when it’s happening right in front of us. But miracles happen all the time. I believe a miracle, sent directly by God, is happening right in front of us, right now. You just have to open your eyes.

A federal judge on Thursday blocked a Texas law that would have empowered local and state law enforcement to arrest and deport illegal immigrants who cross the Southern border into the U.S. The legislation, signed by Governor Greg Abbott in December, was set to take effect March 5. However, U.S. district judge David Ezra ruled that Senate Bill 4 violated the Constitution and prior legal precedent that gives the federal government the sole authority to enforce immigration laws and policies. “To allow Texas to permanently supersede federal directives on the basis of an invasion would amount to nullification of federal law and authority — a notion that is antithetical to the Constitution

Maddow said, “The cravenness of the court is evident in what they are doing with the pacing here. You know, putting this off for seven weeks and sitting on it for two weeks for no reason. Obviously, pushing all of the cases that they can push to a point where Trump will be standing for election before any of us have heard the verdicts in any of those cases. Got it. It is the timing.

A Chicago police officer is suing the city to change his race on his official records after the department said it would allow officers to freely change their gender to match their identity. Mohammad Yusuf, 43, said in a federal civil rights lawsuit filed last week that he is looking to change from “Caucasian” as he “currently identifies as Egyptian and African American.” However, the Chicago Police Department is not allowing him to change his race. The lawsuit comes as the department allows an officer’s “gender identity [to be] corrected to match their lived experience,” Yusuf’s lawsuit alleges.
