Peabody does the Stl. Browns

Jack Kemp


In regards to Mr. Peabody and the St. Louis Browns:

http://tbirdnow.mee.nu/_peabody_sherman_in_st._louis

Peabody would be the team's announcer because the league would not allow a dog to play. There are actual minor league teams, however, that have a dog as a batboy. Seehttp://www.bing.com/images/search?q=dog+batboy+trenton&FORM=HDRSC2

And Bill Veeck's son Mike had a pig who carried a satchel of new baseballs to bring to the catcher for the St. Paul Saints in the minors. See...

Mike Veeck also had an actual 91 year old Catholic nun, Sister Rosalind, who gave massages for a fee in the stands at St. Paul Saints games.

Police Violate First Amendment on College Campus

Jack Kemp forwards this:

University Of Texas Police Give Preacher Citation For Offending Students

http://dailycaller.com/2016/02/10/university-of-texas-police-give-preacher-citation-for-offending-students/

 
The University of Texas at Austin police department issued a disorderly conduct citation to an outdoor preacher on Tuesday after students complained that his message had offended them. The preacher, who was standing just off campus, recorded his interaction with several university police officers, who explained that it was illegal for him to offend the students.
The preacher was an intern with Campus Ministry USA, an evangelical ministry organization that travels around college campuses loudly preaching their message. The ministry is headed by one Brother Jed Smock, who told The Daily Caller that his intern Joshua "was speaking out against STDs, warning against anal sex.”
The university told TheDC that the officer was responding to students who claimed to be "verbally harassed” by the intern-preacher. The video shows the officer explaining that the intern’s use of "anal” and "penis” offended students, before issuing a citation for disorderly conduct. "After a lawyer representing Joshua called the chief of police, the chief called Joshua and apologized. The citation was withdrawn.” Brother Jed told TheDC.
 
 
A university spokesperson confirmed that the citation was later "voided,” adding that the officer who originally responded to the complaint is currently in the training process.
Ari Cohn, a lawyer with the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) told TheDC that he found the video "deeply disturbing.” "Speech that simply offends others is protected by the First Amendment, and contrary to the officer’s statements, it is not the job of police to ‘do something’ about it. Issuing a disorderly conduct citation based on the content of speech violates decades of clear Supreme Court precedent,” Cohn said.
"Even worse is that while Brother Jed is not a campus community member, and was not even on campus property, the officer justified his decision with the fact that students on campus across the way were offended. The implications for campus expression are dire,” Cohn went on to say. "If offending someone on campus is now grounds for criminal citations, students wishing to express themselves will much more likely censor themselves, or simply refrain from speaking at all. Such a result is unacceptable, legally and morally, at a state university bound by the First Amendment.”d Preachers Be Banned On College Campus If They're Too Offensive?
Brother Jed has become somewhat infamous on many college campuses due to his inflammatory rhetoric and provocative style. It’s not uncommon for Brother Jed to hold signs with phrases such as "You Deserve Hell.” According to his website, he’s been preaching at campuses for more than 40 years.

Despite Tuesday’s events, Brother Jed told TheDC that he and his intern "are planning on returning to UT on Friday around noon and will be on campus most of the afternoon.”

VA Care for Everybody!

Anyone who deals with the VA has horror stories about the shoddy health care for veterans, and dependents. Why, then, do you hope, through Obamacare, to foist this type of system off on everyone in the country?

Brian Birdnow

On Thu, Feb 11, 2016 at 3:24 PM, Senator Claire McCaskill<senator@mccaskill.senate.gov>wrote:

Dear Brian,

As World War II was coming to a close, 18-year-old Missourian Arla Harrell was sent to Camp Crowder in the southwest part of the state. There, he was twice exposed to the chemical weapon mustard gas. The Pentagon was using the toxic gas on our own servicemembers in secret experiments, and told the young men like Arla they'd be thrown in jail if they ever spoke of it.

Arla, a native of Buffalo, Mo., turns 89 next month, and has suffered a number of health problems, include lung diseases and skin cancer as a result of the toxic exposure. But the Pentagon and Department of Veterans Affairs refuse to act on his claims.

This week, theSt. Louis Post-Dispatchshone a spotlight on Arla and the thousands of others subjected to these WWII-era mustard gas experiments. Click here to read the full story.

The paperexplains:

"He didn't talk about it for years. When he finally did, he told his family that the Army warned him he'd be thrown in jail if he ever disclosed the experiments. Harrell, known as "Arlie," has been rejected three times by the Department of Veterans Affairs for claims to help treat a lung disorder and skin cancer that his family believes are connected to that exposure... Now Sen. Claire McCaskill is pressuring the Pentagon and the VA to expedite the investigation... More importantly for Harrell, McCaskill's investigators point to a 2012 Army Corps of Engineers document proving mustard gas was present at Camp Crowder. ‘All of the soldiers who underwent the experiments with mustard gas in World War II have been treated reprehensibly by the VA and by the Department of Defense,' said McCaskill, D-Mo. ‘These should have been handled decades ago, and this shouldn't be a fight to get help'..."

I'm fighting for Arla and his fellow servicemembers who were subjected to these experiments - men who have sacrificed far more than any soldier should - to get the long-overdue recognition, compensation, and care they deserve from their government. And I'm not giving up.

All the best,

What's Bernie hiding about his radicalism?

Jack Kemp

I forward this to you, further digging into what Bernie is hiding...

http://nypost.com/2016/02/10/what-is-bernie-sanders-hiding-about-his-radical-history/

  
What Bernie Sanders needs, said the headline over a column in — of all places — the Jewish Forward, is a "come-to-Jesus moment.”
I don’t mind saying that I almost fell out of my socks.

The Forward seems to be referring to the need for Sanders to share his vision, what I’d call his true beliefs. Its columnist, J.J. Goldberg, wants a "big picture” oration, like Martin Luther King’s "I have a dream” speech.

Goldberg suggests that Sanders tell us how he’s going to bring the country together and where he’s going. An apt suggestion, in my view.

I’d also like to know from where Sanders is coming.

The idea of an atheistic Jewish socialist from Vermont (by way of Brooklyn) doesn’t seem to nonplus the voters, at least in the Democratic Party. Good for them. America eschews religious tests as a matter of law and principle.

Yet for a man who wants to be the first Jewish president, Sanders certainly seems to be bent on avoiding the subject of the time he spent in Israel. Time for him to explain himself.
SECTION OMITTED

The kibbutz, according to the Times of Israel, belonged to an Israeli political party called Mapam, which had in the 1950s "been a communist, Soviet-affiliated faction.” It said kibbutz members "had admired Joseph Stalin until his death.”

They would, the Times of Israel reports, "celebrate May Day with red flags.” They spoke of "controlling the means of production, taking from each according to his abilities and giving to each according to his needs.”

It may be that by 1963, when Sanders spent several months on the kibbutz, the place had calmed down. Yet come 1990, when Sanders was interviewed by Haaretz, he was still none too happy with Israel — or America.

Or, as the Jewish Telegraphic Agency characterized it, Sanders was "a sharp critic of the foreign policies of the Reagan and first Bush administrations.” Particularly in respect to Central America.

Sanders told Haaretz that he was "embarrassed by Israel’s involvement.” Why? Because Israel was, according to the JTA account, "a front for the American government.”

SECTION OMITTED

People who are embarrassed that other countries are helping America, however, don’t usually stand for president. After all, the very job of the president himself is to front for America.

Sanders claimed his beef was that Israel was delivering arms to "repressive regimes,” according to JTA’s account. It quotes Sanders as saying he’d "like to see greater pressure on Israel to compromise on the Palestinian issue.”

There is a whole cottage industry of Jews plumping for the Palestinians. But what had we been up to in Central America in 1990? That was the year in which, because of America, democracy finally triumphed.

It was a year to feel particularly good about America...

The joy was not limited to Central America. The Berlin Wall came down in 1989, signaling that it was but a matter of time before the entire Soviet Union would collapse and be cast, as Reagan once put it, into the ash heap of history.

No one is saying that Sanders was a communist himself (and even many idealists who fell for communism got over it). All the more reason to ask what Sanders was doing complaining about America and the Israelis.

END OF QUOTE

Maybe Mr. Lipsky is not saying that Sanders was a communist himself, however I am saying that Sanders WAS and IS a communist.

Peabody & Sherman in St. Louis!



Jack Kemp

Opening scene. Mr. Peabody's study.

Sherman: Gosh, Mr. Peabody, what have you got there?

Mr. Peabody: Why, Sherman, it's a newspaper with a photo of a rather diminuative man in a "Browns" getup.

Sherman: Gosh, I thought brownies wore curled up pointy shoes and funny hats like Robin Hood. What's he doing in a baseball outfit?

Mr. Peabody: You'll find out soon enough, Sherman.

Peabody Voiceover: Wasting no time, I set the Wayback for Sportsman's Park in St. Louis in early August of 1951, and we were soon on our way.

Next scene, the office of Browns owner Bill Veeck.

Bill Veeck: What am I gonna do?

Mr. Peabody: Mr. Veeck...

Bill Veeck: A talking dog! Hey, how would you like to be my new announcer? I could work out a deal with Ralston in Checkerboard Square where they would pay you in Purina Dog Chow!

Peabody: Never mind that. What seems to be the problem, Mr. Veeck?

Bill Veeck: I just hired this midget to bat in the first inning of the second game of tomorrow's doubleheader, and his mother objects! She says it is too dangerous!

Peabody: Mr. Veeck, could you bring her to the ballpark tomorrow?

Veeck: Sure, I guess so. I'll tell her it's a second Mothers' Day promotion and she gets in for free. And I'll send a car for her!

Mr. Peabody then whispers something into Bill Veeck's ear and Veeck smiles.

Peabody Voiceover: The next day, when Mrs. Gaedel was seated in the stands next to Mr. Veeck, a string of ushers brought down a blooming orchid to the lady during each half inning of the first game and into the start of the second contest.

Mrs. Gaedel: For me? Oh, you shouldn't have...

Veeck: Well, I almost didn't.

Mrs. Gaedel: What's that?!

Veeck: Never mind.




Peabody Voiceover: By the time the second game began, Mrs. Gaedel was so charmed - and distracted - by the impromptu speech Mr. Veeck then made with each flower's presentation that she didn't notice her son stepping up to bat and then walking, in one of the most historic moments of baseball history.

Next scene, Back in Peabody's study:

Sherman: Gee, Mr. Peabody, how did you ever think of having Mr. Veeck give Mrs. Gaedel one flower at a time? And what did he say to her then? It did the trick.

Mr. Peabody: Simple, Sherman. After all, it was St. Louis. Didn't you ever hear of..."This bud's for you?"
Sherman stares dumbfounded upon hearing the pun.

Audubon goes over the edge

Paul Driessen

The Audubon Society’s magazine recently devoted an entire issue to generating misplaced fears about "dangerous manmade climate change.” Its front cover proclaimed, "ARCTIC ON THE EDGE: As global warming opens our most critical bird habitat, the world is closing in.”

But as my meteorologist colleague Bob Endlich explains, the cold reality is that the magazine’s writers and editors have gone over the edge – employing misstatements of fact and plain ignorance of history, science and culture to concoct wildly misleading "reports” on the Arctic.

Thank you for posting and forwarding Bob’s article, and helping your readers to learn the truth about climate change and the Audubon Society’s deceptive narratives.

Audubon goes over the edge

The society’s misleading claims about a climate crisis in the Arctic must be corrected

Robert W. Endlich

The January-February 2016 issue of Audubon Magazine (Figure 1) proclaims "Arctic on the Edge: As global warming opens our most critical bird habitat, the world is closing in.” In reality, the magazine’s writers and editors have gone over the edge, with wildly misleading "reports” on the Arctic. https://www.audubon.org/magazine/january-february-2016

The magazine is awash in misstatements of fact and plain ignorance of history, science and culture. It epitomizes the false claims that characterize "news coverage” of "dangerous manmade climate change.” The following analysis corrects only some of the most serious errors, but should raise red flags about most every claim Audubon makes.

The first part of this issue devotes pages to each of the countries surrounding the Arctic Ocean. The Finland page says "storms become more severe” with warming. The writers are either clueless or intentionally misleading; they likely did not take Earth Science or Meteorology and are oblivious of atmospheric fluid dynamics.

The pole to equator temperature difference drives the strength of storms. If there actually is Arctic warming, that temperature difference declines, and storm strength becomes less severe – not more so.

The Norway page describes the Black-legged Kittiwake and speculates that warming in the Barents Sea attracts herring which feed on Kittiwake prey. The authors are clearly unaware that natural warming and cooling cycles have been occurring for centuries. On a map derived from the Norwegian Polar Institute’s examination of ship logs (Figure 2), a green dashed line depicting reduced Nordic Sea ice extent demonstrates extensive warming in the Barents Sea in 1769. During that particular warm period, ocean currents and weather conditions made Svalbard and even parts of Novaya Zemlya ice-free.

The Greenland page purports to show "Greenland Warming.” However, it was warmer than today during the Medieval Warm Period, and abundant new ice formed in Greenland during the past century. Enough snow and ice accumulated on the Greenland Ice Sheet that Glacier Girl, the P-38 airplane that landed there in 1942, was buried in 268 ft of ice before she was recovered in 1992. That’s 268 feet in 50 years, well over 5 feet of ice accumulation a year, much of it during a period when Earth was warming and Greenland was supposedly losing ice.

Audubon’s cover photo features a Russian oil rig amid an ice-covered Arctic Ocean. It is intended to instil fear, by suggesting that a once solidly icy Arctic is melting rapidly. However, history shows that the Nordic ice extent has been decreasing since at least the 1860s http://climate4you.com/SeaIce.htm, and probably since the depth of the Little Ice Age, around 1690. In fact, historic data (Figure 3) http://climate4you.com/SeaIce.htm#Sea, indicate that multi-decadal variability of Nordic Sea extent (some 30-45% more or less ice during each cycle) has been occurring for over 150 years.

Toward the end of the January-February issue is an account of a visit to Wainwright, Alaska, an Inupiat village of about 556 natives, located on the Arctic Ocean in North Slope Borough. The Native Inupiat much prefer to maintain their subsistence culture, which has been their tradition since their ancestors settled nearby about 13,000 years ago.

The caption to the Audubon photograph of the village (Figure 4) emphasizes rising ocean waters. However, most of Alaska has falling sea levels, the result of the isostatic adjustment of northern North America. This rebound effect began with the melting of the Wisconsin Ice Sheet, as Earth emerged from the Wisconsin Ice Age and entered the Holocene between 15,000 and 10,000 years ago. The nearest tide gage to Wainwright is Prudhoe Bay, and sea level rise there is very small: 1.20 mm/year +/- 1.99 mm/year (up to 7.9 inches per century) – so small that sea levels might actually be falling there, as well, when margin of error is considered.

The Audubon writers mention "melting permafrost” numerous times, but when the Natives spoke about this in 1979, they clearly did not view it as a problem. In fact, in their own words, recorded in The Inupiat View, the Natives specifically say melt water is scarce in North Slope Borough. What has happened in the years since? http://www.inupiatgov.com/files/The_Inupiat_View_NPRA_105C_Volume1b_lowres.pdf

First, the North Slope has a summer, and from early June until mid-September air temperatures average warmer than 32 degrees F. Wainwright’s extreme maximum once reached 80 degrees Fahrenheit! During summer, the soil melts, creating an "active layer.” The surface is not permanently frozen, but is melted part of the year, every year. Whether there actually is problematical "melting permafrost,” as claimed by Audubon, can be determined only by finding the long-term trend in the thickness of the active layer.

Specialists studying this phenomenon publish reports in the Circumpolar Active Layer Monitoring Network, in NOAA’s annual Arctic Report Card, and elsewhere. The 2012 Report Card edition had an extensive section on permafrost. A quote from this edition pours freezing water on Audubon’s "melting permafrost” claim: "Active-layer thickness on the Alaskan North Slope and in the western Canadian Arctic was relatively stable during 1995-2011,” it notes.
http://www.arctic.noaa.gov/report12/permafrost.html

The NOAA Arctic Reports do have a heavy dose of alarmist rhetoric, especially in the boilerplate introductory sections, but the actual measurements and data present nothing that supports the alarmist polemic of the day. The long term pattern shows centuries-long slow warming, with multi-decadal fluctuations; significant or alarming anthropogenic trends are simply not there.

Audubon should stay away from areas where it has no expertise – specifically imagined or invented catastrophic anthropogenic global warming. Audubon’s equivocal policy on wind power ostensibly calls on wind energy developers to consider planning, siting and operating wind farms to avoid bird carnage; the Society claims to support "strong enforcement” of laws protecting birds and wildlife. On the other hand, the same Audubon policy speaks about "species extinctions and other catastrophic effects of climate change” and "pollution from fossil fuels.”

When read together, this schizophrenic policy clearly puts Audubon on the side of climate alarmism – with the loss of birds and bats merely a small price to pay in an effort to "save the planet.”

Another article shows that Audubon’s alarmist climate claims, rather than bird safety, clearly dominate president David Yarnold’s concerns. Beneath a picture of a forest fire, an editorial quotes him: "Climate change is the greatest threat to birds and biodiversity since humans have been on the planet.”

Yarnold’s editorial is rife with alarmist propaganda: increasing drought (data show drought decreasing in the United States over the past 110 years in regions where we have temperature and rainfall measurements http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/cag/time-series/us/110/0/pdsi/ytd/12/1895-2015?base_prd=true&firstbaseyear=1901&lastbaseyear=2000) … increasing forest fires (not so, according to actual data https://www.nifc.gov/fireInfo/fireInfo_stats_totalFires.html) …increasing species extinctions (virtually no extinctions have occurred except on isolated islands where predators were introduced by humans http://wattsupwiththat.com/2010/01/04/where-are-the-corpses/) … and more flooding (there has been nothing outside normal experience). http://www.theresilientearth.com/?q=content/review-disasters-climate-change-roger-pielke-jr

Audubon needs to concentrate on saving birds and other flying creatures from the very real death machines that kill countless thousands, perhaps millions, of them every year. These killing machines include wind turbines, that chop up raptors, song birds and bats, and heliostats (installations using mirrors to concentrate the sun’s rays) that incinerate them.

Bats pollinate crops and consume insects. However, the number of bats killed has been conservatively estimated at 600,000 annually, and may be as high as 900,000. The Ivanpah solar-to-electrical-energy plant in California’s Mojave Desert actually ignites birds in flight; the dying birds are called "streamers,” because they emit smoke as they fall from the sky. One report estimates that over 100 golden eagles and 300 red tailed hawks are killed yearly by wind turbines at California’s Altamont Pass, but another calculates that millions of birds and bats are killed every year by US wind turbines.

Audubon needs to get some real science in its research and show true empathy for the human-caused deaths that our flying friends face on a daily basis

2015 Not Hottest Year on Record

Timothy Birdnow


2015 was not even close to warmest on record. According to climatologist James Taylor:

"Satellite temperature readings going back to 1979 show1998 was by far the warmest year in the satellite era, followed by 2010. 2015 comes in third. And these results are only for the period since 1979.

2015 should have been warmer. This past year saw what is likelythe most powerful El Nino during the satellite temperature record. With a record El Nino, we should have experienced record high temperatures. Yet we didn’t.

A record El Nino resulting in less-than-record temperatures is another sign that global warming is not all that activists crack it up to be. Indeed, if a record strong El Nino cannot bring global temperatures back to the warmth of 1998, what can – and when will that be? 18 years after 1998, global warming still has not created the runaway warming we were told to expect."

End excerpt.

NASA and NOAA have to doctor the historical record to make the claim of "warmest on record" that they so often breathlessly announce. Turns out they are wrong.

OH Black Lives Matter activist's suicide

Jack Kemp forwards this:

https://www.yahoo.com/music/news/black-lives-matter-activist-marshawn-145800226.html

An Ohio activist heavily involved with the Black Lives Matter movement has reportedly committed suicide. Marshawn McCarrel, 23, was found dead outside of the Statehouse Monday evening (Jan. 8), The Columbus Dispatch reports.

Lt. Craig Cvetan of the State Highway Patrol said McCarrel was more than likely alone at the time of his death. Born and raised in Columbus, McCarrel’s body was found after police responded to a call about a shooting at 6 p.m. McCarrel was known for his social activism and work with Black Lives Matter. He was also the founding member of Pursuing Our Dreams, a mentorship for inner city youth and created the homeless charity Feed The Streets in light of his past battle with homelessness. Earlier in the year, McCarrell traveled to California to receive Radio One’s Hometown Champions award, according to the New York Daily News.

Before his death, McCarrell took to social media to send a final farewell to his supporters tweeting, "Let the record show that I pi**ed on the state house before I left.” Another questionable message read, "If we don’t have to live through hell just to get to heaven. I’ma stay right here with you.”

Hillary Clinton didn’t just lose New Hampshire – she got clobbered, losing to rival Bernie Sanders across virtually every demographic.

Hillary; We can’t get in a place where we’re so mad that we demonize anyone who is against us

Dana Mathewson

Can you believe Hillary's quote in the middle of this? "We can’t get in a place where we’re so mad that we demonize anyone who is against us, where we can’t have an honest discussion about health care, where anyone who is on the other side is part of a mystical ‘establishment,’” Clinton said.

If polls are to be believed, Hillary Clinton's once commanding national lead over Bernie Sanders appears to have evaporated in a matter of days -- pointing to trouble ahead for the former secretary of state as voters cast their ballots Tuesday in Sanders-friendly New Hampshire.

Women In Combat: Making A Virtue Of Weakness Gets People Killed

women in combatd
You may have seen this video that is making the rounds on Facebook. It was taken at an unidentified Army base. The scene is a 12-mile. Her total equipment load is about 35-lbs (that is the equivalent of four one-gallon containers of milk, by way of reference). That is the minimum standard and no one carries more than they have to. The march has to be completed within three hours. (These are the standards.) You can see her time on the clock near the end of the video.
 
If you are applauding her, you are taking away the wrong lesson. At the end of the 12-mile march you are not supposed to lie in a fetal position and twitch uncontrollably. You are supposed to be able to enter combat from the march. In other words, the 12-mile forced march is not a ceiling to be sought, it is the floor of expectations. By comparison, look at the man crossing the finish line in front of her. And keep in mind that absolutely no one in an infantry unit will beso lucky as to carry 35-lbs of equipment:
These standards designate strength requirements for infantry as "very heavy” — meaning a soldier will occasionally have to lift more than 100 pounds, but frequently or constantly be capable of lifting more than 50 pounds. In reality, infantrymen carry anywhere from 60 to 120 pounds of gear in the field depending on their job, Army officials have said.
If you look at the packing list for the march you will see it excludes ammunition, unit equipment like night vision googles, etc.
When Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter ordered all combat positions open to women he did so knowing, or at least he should have known, that his decision was going to result in dead American soldiers. The only reason he opened those positions was to appease the Social Justice Warriors who run the Obama administration and the Defense Department. Women are not needed in combat units because there is no shortage of recruits to fill those positions. Women contribute little to nothing to combat effectiveness because they simply are not as physically capable as men. If you pry Joe Schlub off the sofa and rip the Xbox controller from his hand then stand him side-by-side with a female athlete of the same height and weight (I’m talking about a chromosomal woman, not one of the multitude of genders recognized on Facebook) she will have, at most, 66% of his lean muscle mass.
physiology
When you move into men and women who are in decent shape, the performance differential becomes even more stark. For instance, the world record in the Women’s 800m is held by Jarmila Kratochvílová her time is 1:53.28. Below are the top 10 Women’s 800m times:
women 800
Now let’s look at the 800m times from high school boys in the state ofCalifornia in 2015:
boys 800
Why the top 49 times? Because the top 10 women 800m times, ever, would place between 16th and 48th place among high school boys times in California.
If you want to do a more apples to apples comparison, the top Women’s 800m time would beover seven seconds slowerthan the6,258th best Men’s time.
Men and women are not physical equals. And we are playing a very dangerous and very lethal game right now by fantasizing otherwise. Testing by the US Marine Corps that pitted all-male squads against co-ed squads found that all-male squadssignificantly outperformed the co-ed squadseven though the test had been structured to aid the co-ed squad… this is something out enemies probably won’t do:
All-male ground combat units in the Marines were faster, more lethal and less injured than units with mixed genders, according to a Marine Corps study that looked at integrating women into all service jobs.
"All male squads, teams and crews demonstrated higher performance levels on 69 percent of tasks evaluated (93 of 134) as compared to gender-integrated squads, teams and crews,” according a summary of the report released Thursday.
Theexperience of women going though the US Army Ranger Schoolproved that if they had been treated as male Ranger students none, zero, not a single one, would have made it through. But that doesn’t matter because some mealy mouthed SJW thinks she will look hotter if she has a the black-and-gold Ranger tab on her uniform.
I am not opposed to women in uniform. I don’t like the idea of women in combat because healthy and vibrant societies do not send their young women off to war. I will even concede that in some roles, such as fighter pilots and helicopter pilots they are probably as qualified as their male colleagues. But most of the combat arms aren’t those kinds of jobs. In the infantry, the armor, the cavalry, the field artillery, the combat engineers the currency of the realm is strength and physical endurance. You cannot file a sexual discrimination complaint against a 125-lb rucksack… but you can get a male team mate to carry if for you.
Go back and look at the video again. In combat, what kind of shape is she going to be end when she arrives at her objective? Who is going to have to carry her equipment so she can keep up with the unit? Who is going to have to protect her as she recovers?
What you are seeing in that video is not courage. You are seeing failed leadership leading from that unit all the way through the Pentagon and coming to rest in the White House. You are seeing a young woman being readied to be sent to her death to satisfy the SJW sisterhood. You are seeing men who will be killed trying to protect her and to do her job when she physically can’t.
You are seeing a cruel farce being perpetrated upon this young woman, upon her unit, and upon her nation.
You are seeing murder being planned.
