I don't doubt there are female troops who can hack the Ranger course; my concern is that the politicians in uniform will allow some who can't to go, and see they get passed through, so the numbers will look good.
Doesn't really surprise me, supporting the disgusting is what these people do:
But what's especially interesting is how much support Kimberlin had on the hard-left progressive community. Robert Stacy McCain's been reporting on that angle: "Convicted Terrorist Brett Kimberlin Received $70,000 From Tides Foundation, $10,000 From Streisand, $20,000 from John Kerry’s Wife," and "Who Warned Us About Brett Kimberlin?"
Robert writes, for example:
The disclosure of Kimberlin’s funding from prestigious liberals matters, because of this convicted criminal’s apparently close connections to other key figures in the progressive online community, not only his business partnership with Brad Friedman, but also his claims to be an “associate” of Democrat political consultant Neal Rauhauser.
Congressmen Seek To Lift Propaganda Ban. How about a different headline: Citizens Seek To Tar & Feather Numerous Politicians?
On Holder trying to claim he doesn't have to comply with the subpoena because of Executive Privilege; short version: Bullshit.
The Brian A. Terry Memorial Act: inconvenient for the Gunwalker administration, so
Matthew Boyle of the Daily Caller reports this on the signing:
On Tuesday, when Obama signed the bill into law, he did not hold a public signing ceremony with Terry’s family. The announcement that Obama had signed the memorial act into law was stuffed in the middle of a White House press release packed with other announcements not relevant to Terry.
The press release contained no quote from Obama or from White House press secretary Jay Carney about Terry.
Not only was this bill a non-event for the White House but US Customs and Border Protection did not even see fit to release a statement on the naming of the Border Patrol Station after one of their own who was killed in the line of duty.
Both the actions of the White House and Customs and Border Protection are reprehensible. It smacks of the former Soviet Union where inconvenient people - like evidently the late Brian Terry is to the Obama Administration - would become non-people or invisible. The Soviets did this to the dissidents, the Jews, and anyone who deviated from the party line.
On that subject, no, a lot of them DON'T want to actually vote on these things.
