Mattis Feb. 8, 2018 News Transcript … I want to talk about Syria. Because we had what I would characterize as a perplexing situation.

US Navy is commissioning a new LCS ship

Few if any civilians understand the complexity of purchasing Naval ships; nor, until they are battle ready just how long and difficult the journey is for each commissioned ship. Sometimes it is good to really think about what it takes to make sure our superiority in combat on land, sea, and in the air is on target. Like mortgages on our homes, they have to be planned for and each year paid down on, until they are ready to go to sea. These extremely sophisticated and important tools in our military are essential to provide for our defense and sovereignty. … Continue reading

Time to stop theatrics and get on with business Senate

This was old six months ago and now it is downright ridiculous. Time for McConnell to go nuclear on a fully funded year or even two year budget. It’s also time to move payroll and defense into their own yearly bills to be approved and out of the negotiations for yearly funding government programs so that this never happens again or some other solution that stops this ridiculous byplay and politics holding our national security and employees hostage. Trump isn’t the only president that this has happened to and unless something is done, this same terrorist tactic between parties will … Continue reading

Democrat Sponsored Shutdown Now Occurring

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” Democrat platform on the surface surely reflects these words. However, the truth is far different. Had they really been thinking about those less fortunate people –They WOULD have prepared and approved a yearly budget already. –They WOULD HAVE ALREADY been prepared to follow through with bills on things they believe to be necessary after the budget had been approved. –They WOULD NOT HAVE acted like small, craven children who are afraid of their shadows in order to finalize a budget and get on with what they were … Continue reading

Another Trump Achievement -First DoD Department Wide Audit Underway

DoD Owes Taxpayers Full Accounting of Assets, Comptroller Tells House   For decades, IG auditors and the Office of Management has said that the Department of Defense needed a comprehensive audit. Resistance from inside the DoD, their insistence on autonomy, and the lack of will of congress members to demand have created a very poor understanding of the spending habits and use of taxpayer money within defense.  Speculation has been riff of massive overspending, unnecessary spending, and redundant spending for an equally long time. When President Trump came in, he campaigned on the promise of real “draining of the swamp.” … Continue reading

MSM silent on NK missile and its damage in April 2017

When a North Korean Missile Accidentally Hit a North Korean City — Early last year, a North Korean IRBM crashed in a populated area. What does that tell us?

NK celebrated its launch but somehow nothing was ever mentioned about the results of the test.     Thanks to the in-depth reporting of the Diplomat and its reporters we now know more. Apparently, the regime has no problem with destroying buildings and hurting its own people … Continue reading
