Please continue

The irony is strong with this one.

Clemson U

I’m glad the professor freely admits that transgenders are disabled. This allows me to skip the first obvious point, so I can move on to the other two obvious points.

I.e., the Nazi eugenics program involved MURDERING disabled people, while Trump merely says (correctly) that they do not belong in the military where it MATTERS that all the bodies be as close to perfect as possible.

But, please, dear professor, continue talking.  I’m sure other parents would benefit from learning what kind of “education” their kids would get at Clemson.

On This Day in 1782

1782
Washington creates the Purple Heart

On this day in 1782, in Newburgh, New York, General George Washington, the commander in chief of the Continental Army, creates the “Badge for Military Merit,” a decoration consisting of a purple, heart-shaped piece of silk, edged with a narrow binding of silver, with the word Merit stitched across the face in silver. The badge was to be presented to soldiers for “any singularly meritorious action” and permitted its wearer to pass guards and sentinels without challenge. The honoree’s name and regiment were also to be inscribed in a “Book of Merit.”
Washington’s “Purple Heart” was awarded to only three known soldiers during the Revolutionary War: Elijah Churchill, William Brown and Daniel Bissell, Jr. The “Book of Merit” was lost, and the decoration was largely forgotten until 1927, when General Charles P. Summerall, the U.S. Army chief of staff, sent an unsuccessful draft bill to Congress to “revive the Badge of Military Merit.” In 1931, Summerall’s successor, General Douglas MacArthur, took up the cause, hoping to reinstate the medal in time for the bicentennial of George Washington’s birth. On February 22, 1932, Washington’s 200th birthday, the U.S. War Department announced the creation of the “Order of the Purple Heart.”
http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/washington-creates-the-purple-heart
The original Purple Heart award was instituted by George Washington in 1782 to reward troops for “unusual gallantry” and “extraordinary fidelity and essential service.” The award was a purple cloth heart edged in silver braid, and was to be worn over the left breast of the uniform. Only three awards are known to have been issued, of which two are known to exist today.
One of the two known examples of the Badge for Military Merit

Current Awards: In addition to awards to those killed or wounded “in any action against an enemy of the United States”, the criteria for the award of the medal was amended to include those killed or wounded as a result of “an international terrorist attack,” and “as part of a peacekeeping force.” Thus in addition to awards for Grenada (Operation Urgent Fury), Panama (Operation Just Cause) and Iraq (Operation Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom) the medal is awarded for fatal and non-fatal wounds arising as a result of peacekeeping efforts such as Lebanon, Haiti, Somalia, and Bosnia-Croatia.

OKAY, NOW COMES THE RANT THAT YOU JUST KNEW WAS COMING
For more than two centuries our fighting forces have defended our country, often at the cost of a limb or a life.The purple heart is a meager token awarded for their sacrifice. Almost every one of them earned it.
Almost.
In his book,”Unfit for Command” Lee Corsi documented the extreme cowardice, showmanship, and treachery of the 2004 democrat nominee for president and current climate change whack job John Forbes Kerry. He volunteered for service in Vietnam because ‘it would look good on his political resume.’ Those who served with him knew what an unmitigated fraud he was and remains to this day. They are the Swift Boat veterans that the media did their best to minimize but couldn’t, since THEY WERE THERE!
The book documents how he wrangled three Purple hearts in the short span of four months and slithered out of the service to testify at the infamous ‘Winter Soldier’ hearings and sell out the brave men he’d just run away from. One award was scooped up when he threw a grenade into a pile of rice bags and got some rice kernels in his ass. Testimony from a medic who treated him in another event said he had a tiny wooden sliver in his finger that he had to hold to keep it from falling out on its own. He had a cameraman follow him everywhere he went to record his many acts of heroism. Folks in Massachusetts nicknamed him “Liveshot.”
The only thing he ever did well was marry rich women and behave like the arrogant overbearing buffoon that he is. Being a liar and a fraud is part of being a democrat. What really galls me is how he abused the system and cheapened an award that is meant to honor those who have given a measure of themselves to serve. For that he will never be forgiven by those who know the truth.

THE FACT WE NOW HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO VALUES OUR WARRIORS’ SACRIFICE AND GIVES THEM THE FULL-THROATED SUPPORT THEY DESERVE IS A FACT I THANK ALMIGHTY GOD FOR EVERY DAY.

2017 Charlie Gard

CHARLIE GARD: Charlie Gard’s parents were unable to use the £1.3 million (about $1.5 million USD) they raised to transfer Charlie to the U.S. for experimental treatment. They’ve decided to start a Charlie Gard Foundation to help families in similar circumstances.

TRANNIES IN THE MILITARY: President Trump could save American taxpayers nearly $2 billion if he follows through on his plan to ban military service for severely gender-confused (“transgender”) individuals.

That is the estimate for the cost of the “transgender” military policy begun under Obama, accordign to a paper by Family Research Council.

CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME: Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have linked chronic fatigue syndrome to variations in 17 immune-system signaling proteins, or cytokines, whose concentrations in the blood correlate with the disease’s severity.

The findings provide evidence that inflammation is a powerful driver of this mysterious condition, whose underpinnings have eluded researchers for 35 years.

“There’s been a great deal of controversy and confusion surrounding ME/CFS — even whether it is an actual disease,” said Davis. “Our findings show clearly that it’s an inflammatory disease and provide a solid basis for a diagnostic blood test.”

FAKE NEWS: The story of a nun who received Vatican permission to witness a Catholic marriage in a remote Canadian diocese with few priests has seized international attention — the implication being it may portend a new role for women in the Church. But the situation is far from unprecedented and is allowed under canon law.

I’LL POST MORE “INTERESTING BUT TOO BRIEF FOR A WHOLE BLOG” BELOW IN COMMENTS IF I FIND ANY MORE TODAY.

How many?

Trans in military

A survey that asked, “Have you ever been a member of the armed forces?” received 6,546 “valid responses.” From that, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and the National Center for Transgender Equality inexplicably concluded that “approximately 15,500 transgender individuals are serving on active duty or in the Guard or Reserve forces.” IOW, 1.2 percent.

Another study, one that was sponsored by the military, estimated that “the number of transgender individuals currently serving in the active component of the U.S. military at between 1,320 and 6,630 out of a total of about 1.3 million service members.” IOW, between 0.1 and 0.5 percent.

The first number makes no sense, given that the estimated trans population in America is only around 0.3 percent.

I’m inclined to believe in the lowest end of the estimates. For one thing, the highest figure for active duty was inappropriately extrapolated from a sample that included any past service. For another, I just find it difficult to believe that the average transsexual would want the military life.

All That Matters

I absolutely 100% support President Trump’s recent announcement that trannies will be banned from military service. Period.

I tried to enlist in the Army once upon a long time ago. I never got past the first interview, because I needed allergy shots. The recruiter said a soldier who needed shots just to function was a liability in a war zone. I thought it was a very fair point.

And I thought of it again when my uniformed kids who qualified got free laser surgery.  So when the Obama administration got all fuzzy-wuzzy about trannies in the military, I was appalled.

The idea that taxpayers should foot the huge bill for all the counseling, hormones, surgery, and down time for a soldier to change genders made zero sense to me. Plus, they need hormone treatments daily! I just needed an allergy shot every other week. Sheesh.

2017_07 26 All that matters tweet

J.R. Saltzman’s comments support my own feelings. His full string of tweets are at the Twitchy link posted below.

2017_07 26 Saltzman tweets

As for the trannies who say they have been or are in the military … the nation does NOT owe you a military career.  If you’re such an overwhelmingly super duper asset that some CO is willing to put up with your gender issues, then God bless you.  Otherwise, you can and should be replaced.

If you want to let President Trump you support his decision, go here to sign the petition.

Sleep Apnea Blues

Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that occurs when a person’s breathing is interrupted during sleep. People with untreated sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, sometimes hundreds of times. This means the brain — and the rest of the body — may not get enough oxygen.
http://www.webmd.com/sleep-disorders/sleep-apnea/sleep-apnea

When I spent 9 days in the hospital it was discovered I had severe sleep apnea. I knew there was something wrong for years but I didn’t have the medical coverage to get tested for it. Having had a quadruple bypass in 2004, I was in the cardio unit and hooked up to an EKG. It was discovered that the reason I would suffer periodic blackouts was that my heart would literally stop for from 2-8 seconds. I use a VPAP (different from a CPAP) machine now and cannot sleep without it. It is difficult for me to go more than a few hours without sleep. As such, I spend a large part of the day sleeping and have trouble sleeping at night. Such was the case today, so I figured I’d get an early start on the babbling.

It is no secret that the democrats loathe the military and sometimes go out of their way to harm them. CtH has stated here that those serving, like her warriors, were miserable under the dictates of Barack H. Obama. The mightiest fighting force in the world was reduced to an insipid social experiment. All that ended today and the results were predictable. Unlike his predecessor, Trump LISTENS to the generals who conduct the actual operations.

Pres. Trump bars transgender individuals from US armed forces

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump abruptly declared a ban Wednesday on transgender troops serving anywhere in the U.S. military, catching the Pentagon flat-footed and unable to explain what it called President Trump’s “guidance.” His proclamation, on Twitter rather than any formal announcement, drew bipartisan denunciations and threw currently serving transgender soldiers into limbo.
“Please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military,” the commander in chief tweeted.

GOP senators break with Trump over transgender troop ban
Multiple Republican senators broke with President Trump on Wednesday after he announced on Twitter that transgender troops would be banned from serving in the military.
In separate statements, GOP Sens. John McCain (Ariz.), Joni Ernst (Iowa), Richard Shelby (Ala.) and Orrin Hatch (Utah) all criticized Trump for his decision that Obama-era rules allowing transgender troops to serve would be reversed.
McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, ripped the call and said that Trump shouldn’t be making policy announcements via tweet.

Just 23 Percent Of Voters Say Trans Enlistment Is Good For The Military
A Rasmussen survey taken last month found that just 23 percent of likely voters think the decision to allow openly transgender people to serve — a decision made by the Obama administration — is good for the military. Just under one-third of likely voters — 31 percent — think it’s bad for the military to allow openly transgender soldiers to serve, while another 38 percent thought it would have no impact.
President Trump defended the ban on the grounds that military policies should be oriented towards what’s best for winning wars.
“Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail,” he explained on Twitter Wednesday morning.

Combat Veteran: War Is No Place For The Gender Confused
In a tweet series, Salzman recounted his experiences in Iraq in 2006, when he was stationed at an isolated firebase in the blazing heat and experienced constant stress from the intense nature of his job.
“Everyday was Groundhog Day,” Salzman tweeted. “Wake up and do the same patrols, the same shifts, every single day. It was so damn hot. 150° in the gun trucks.”
“The stress of being out there and doing the same job every single day eats away at you,” Salzman said. “The younger guys had problems with that overtime.”
“After stepping on each other’s nuts living in the same can for five months, guys were at each other’s throats,” Salzman added. “The stress made it worse.”

A Commander to Be Proud Of

Barack Obama never hid his abject contempt for our military. Like the spineless coward that he is, he announced that once he ascended to his throne he would cut and run from Iraq, removing the only safeguard those people had from the savagery that is ISIS. All the blood and treasure that we sacrificed to try to stabilize that country went for nothing as he left billions in military assets which the terrorists used to butcher innocent men, women, and children. He slashed our manpower, cut their budgets, and reduced our defenses to a point we could not sustain a war on two fronts. He knew not a damn thing about military strategy, but ignored what his generals, who knew what they were doing. He was just sooo damn smart. And the media went right along with him. I prayed for our warriors like Chrissy’s daughters and Grunt’s son.
Of all the people who breathed a sigh of relief when Trump was elected, our soldiers were among those most pleased. They knew they finally had a Commander-in-Chief who loved and respected them.

Obama never shied away from slapping our people in the face

THEN ALONG CAME THAT TRUMP GUY
Trump Honors Veterans At Celebrate Freedom Rally

President Donald Trump delivered an Independence Day address honoring American veterans — hundreds of whom came from the Washington, D.C. area to attend the “Celebrate Freedom Rally” at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
“America is a land rich with heroes,” said Trump at the event, which included wounded warriors who are patients at the Walter Reed Medical Center.
During his speech, the president personally saluted World War II veteran Harry Miller for his lifelong service and wounded warrior Luis Avila. Miller enlisted in the reserves at 15, even though he was not old enough to serve. He fought in Europe and in The Battle of the Bulge. Avila, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, was on a fifth deployment when he was wounded, losing his leg, during an intelligence reconnaissance mission.

Here’s a little more about Harry Miller

Here’s a little more about Luis Avila

Hussein Obama used to attend Freedom Rally’s too

 

OVER THE WEEKEND THERE WERE “IMPEACH TRUMP” RALLIES ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, WELL PUBLICIZED AND REPORTED ON BY THE MEDIA WHORES. THERE WAS NOT A WORD MENTIONED ABOUT THE FREEDOM RALLY OR THE FACT WE ARE LOSING THE GREATEST GENERATION AT AN ALARMING RATE. SOON THEY WILL ALL BE GONE AND WE WILL NEVER SEE ANYTHING LIKE THEM AGAIN. THEY HAD A GOOD SUPPLY OF SOMETHING THIS NATION HAS LITTLE OF… GUTS. THE WILL TO DO WHAT’S RIGHT. PUTTING THEIR COUNTRY ABOVE THEIR OWN SAFETY. ALL BECAUSE THEY CONSIDERED IT THEIR DUTY. WE BLESS AND HONOR THEM AND THE FAMILIES WHO SUFFERED WITH THEM.

A President with Compassion

What a difference a year makes. The past eight years, military families have been used as props by a president who once famously remarked that soldiers made “good photo ops.” His appearances to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns betrayed his contempt for the people he was there to honor. He would spit out empty, hollow, meaningless words some thirty-something kid had written for him, and then retreat to his beloved golf course, something that was really important to him.

What a relief it must have been for the Gold Star families who came to Arlington yesterday to be consoled by a man who truly respects the sacrifice they and their loved ones have made to keep us free.

He hailed ‘Gold Star’ families and mentioned service members who gave their lives

Among those he mentioned was the late son of Homeland Security Secretary Gen. John Kelly
He also mentioned a fallen Army specialist and a Green Beret major who risked his life for others
‘Here at this hallowed shrine we honor the noblest among us – the men and the women who paid the ultimate price for victory and for freedom,’ Trump told a crowd of families, military personnel, and dignitaries at Arlington on Monday in his first Memorial Day speech as president.

‘We pay tribute to those brave souls who raced into gunfire, roared into battle and ran into hell to face down evil. They made their sacrifice not for fame or for money or even for glory, but for country,’ Trump said.

‘They died in war, so that we could live in peace,’ he added.

I HAVE STATED BEFORE THAT THE LEFT DESPISES THE MILITARY BECAUSE THEY CANNOT UNDERSTAND ANYBODY CARING SO DEEPLY ABOUT THEIR COUNTRY THAT THEY WOULD SACRIFICE ALL TO PROTECT AND DEFEND IT. THEIR ATTITUDE RUNS FROM TEPID INDIFFERENCE TO OVERT HOSTILITY.

On Memorial Day, Leftist Site Smears Marines As Having ‘Toxic Masculinity Problem’

Left-wing website Vox attacked the Marine Corps for its “toxic masculinity problem” on Memorial Day, the national holiday dedicated to honoring the American men and women who died serving their country in the armed forces.

The liberal website, a personal favorite of Barack Obama with a reputation for butchering simple facts, claimed the Marine Corps has a “well-earned reputation for being a fraternity that often marginalizes or mistreats female troops.”

The author, Vox staff writer Alex Ward, does not appear to be a military veteran, although his current Twitter profile picture does show him drinking a very masculine-looking glass of lemon water.

The liberal writer claimed that the Corps’ recent nude photo sharing scandal is proof that Marines have a “toxic masculinity problem.” Daily Caller News Foundation editor Geoffrey Ingersoll, a Marine Corps veteran, previously wrote a piece explaining why he finds that line of reasoning to be worthless. In Ingersoll’s words: “the most ‘toxic’ ​​thing about ‘​masculinity’ in the Corps is the kind of metal used to kill radical Islamic terrorists.”

“Jim Mattis, current secretary of defense and the most revered Marine in modern history, once told me he didn’t mind killing the ‘kind of scum’ that won’t allow ‘young girls to read,’” Ingersoll noted.
