Courtesy of Delta Bravo, and the work of someone named "Earl", whose name I could not capture in the lower right-hand corner of the image. But, well-done, Earl. URR here. Continue reading

At Hillary Clinton's direction, the Democratic National Committee paid for the Fusion GPS dossier and then handed it (with John McCain's fingerprints on it) to the FBI's Counterintelligence Chief, who washed that information through the Intelligence Community to give it the appearance of intelligence information gathered by US agencies, to...

We hear endlessly that the solution to the so-called "civil-military divide" is to make the military more like civilian culture. And that whatever "divide" exists is somehow more the military's fault than anyone else's. We are surrounded by such assertions, even from the mouths of senior officers. The President of...

Blackfive posted on the loss of a Big. Damn. Hero. Bob championed, I mean CHAMPIONED, veteran causes. His work on behalf of veterans raised tons of money, awareness and gave vets and their families hope. Of all people, Concrete Bob brought a sense of normalcy to people whose lives had...

Damn. We are much the richer for having met him, and much the poorer for having lost him. I will stand with my thumbs along my trouser seams and feet at a 45 at 1030 today, just ten minutes from now, as Concrete Bob answers the roll at the Pearly Gates. There, I have no doubt, he will continue to repeat all calls from posts more distant from the guardhouse than his own, like the Marine he was. Semper Fi, Marine.

Very sad news to hear for anyone who has made a living plying "the old grey widowmaker". ARA San Juan S-42 is now reported as being lost, with no sign of survivors from the crew of 40. Initially, reports were that she was having communications issues, but would continue her... Continue reading

Hell f-ing YEAH! The Marine Corps Times has the story and a hell of a motivating video to go with it. “Every minute of every hour we were putting some kind of fire on ISIS in Raqqa, whether it was mortars, artillery, rockets, [High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems], Hellfires, armed...

I did have sympathy for those guys, at times. Especially during the dreaded FMAM. February, March, April, and May, when making mission was difficult at best. One SSgt I knew from RS Philly said that was benches and grates time, as in that is where you got your poolees, off... Continue reading

The refrain is, tragically, a well-known one. Muslim allowed in to this country, never cares to assimilate, repays the kindness of his new country by indiscriminately killing and maiming in the name of Islam. Eight dead, fifteen injured. "Allahu Akbar" being screamed as he murdered. Even as the activist courts... Continue reading

The 44th anniversary of the beginning of the Yom Kippur War is today. On that day, 6 October 1973, Syrian armor attacked on the northern flank of Israel, crashing through the thin IDF defenses in the Golan Heights with an infantry division and more than 200 tanks. At the end... Continue reading

The jokes write themselves. At least he had his ball in the fairway. She likes to play with a stiff shaft. Hennessey reportedly stated that she and Payne “should not have been engaged in those activities within public view.” That could be said about my golf game, too. The woman,... Continue reading

There is very little philosophical difference between the 2001 demolition by the Taliban of the ancient Buddhas in Bamiyan and the recent destruction of Confederate statues and monuments across the South. Nor is there an appreciable difference between the desired destruction of the Giza Pyramids and the demand to do... Continue reading

Varying reports of either one or two dead, and eight injured by an as-yet unidentified knife-wielding man on a "rampage". I am sure we will get a lot of "unknown motives" and "not terrorism" from the pathetically partisan news media. But The Daily Caller gives us this: Eyewitness video shot... Continue reading

Remember, you heard it here first. The mounting evidence is becoming impossible to ignore. When a far-left source like The Nation begins to question the very premise of the eight month drumbeat of the Obama/Clinton/Podesta/Mook Russia hacking claims, the jig is about up. All this was set in motion when... Continue reading
