NUTS! U.S. Navy Seals to Get First Women, Including One Trans “Woman”

American general Anthony McAuliffe replied “Nuts!” when the Germans requested that he and his troops surrender during the Battle of the Bulge.

“Nuts!” seems like a good response to feminists who demand that women serve in elite combat units in the American military. It also seems like a good reply to trannies who no longer have their nuts but also demand slots in high powered combat roles.

Even if standards are maintained, there are still problems with putting women into combat units. As to trannies, well that’s so ridiculous as to be cringeworthy.

One of the big problems is that too many men are White Knights at heart. They’re going to be distracted by having a female beside them in combat. They’re going to take unnecessary risks that they wouldn’t take if they were part of an all male unit.

Besides, women belong in traditional roles, which proved to the optimal arrangement for society for thousands of years. Countries whose military avoid gender politics are going to be at a distinct advantage should a hot war break out.

Excerpt from Military

More than a year after a mandate for the Pentagon opened previously closed ground combat and special operations jobs to women, officials say the Navy has its first female candidates for its most elite special warfare roles.

Two women were in boot camp as candidates for the Navy’s all-enlisted Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewman program, Naval Special Warfare Center Deputy Commander Capt. Christian Dunbar told members of the Defense Advisory Committee on Women in the Service in June.

Another woman, who sources say is a junior in an ROTC program at an unnamed college, has applied for a spot in the SEAL officer selection process for fiscal 2018, which begins Oct. 1, and is set to complete an early step in the pipeline, special operations assessment and selection, later this summer, he said.

Kristin Beck, pictured below, was retired from the SEALS when he made the transition. Prior to changing her name to Kristin, she was known as Christopher. “She” was still a he while in the military.

Styx Has the Solution to the Refugee Crisis

President Trump should appoint Styxhexenhammer666 as Secretary of State. If that’s not possible, we need to smuggle Styx into the White House and get him together with Trump over lunch.

You see, Styx has figured out how to end the “refugee crisis.” You’ve probably figured it out, too. A lot of us common sense people have it figured out. Styx articulates it well. If only Trump would watch this video. (And Styx would stop cursing.)

The answer to the refugee crisis offered by Styx is presented in the first few minutes of this 20 minute video. After that, it’s just elaboration on the idea. I’ll give you a hint: Peace.

Styx’s plan would make us safer, save money, and allow the U.S. to claim the moral high ground.

Collusion Off Japan Leaves American Destroyer Crippled, Sailors Injured and Possibly Missing

CBS News

The U.S. Navy’s USS Fitzgerald has collided with a Japanese merchant vessel, CBS News national security correspondent David Martin reports.

The Japanese Coast Guard is on the scene and providing assistance at the request of the U.S. Navy. The USS Fitzgerald is under her own power, although her propulsion is limited, according to the U.S. 7th Fleet. The USS Dewey, medical assistance and two Navy tugs are also being dispatched as quickly as possible. Naval aircraft are also being readied. The collusion was serious, but the extent of the damage and personnel injuries are being determined.

The collision occurred at 2:30 a.m. local time on June 17, about 56 nautical miles off of Yokosuka, Japan, according to the Navy.

Live footage shot from a helicopter Saturday morning by Japanese broadcaster NHK showed heavy damage to the mid-right side of the Navy ship, which appeared to be stationary in the water. People were standing on various parts of the deck.

The USS Fitzgerald, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer commissioned in 1995, is based in Yokosuka, according to the Navy. Its crew includes roughly 23 officers, 24 chief petty officers and 291 enlisted members of the Navy.

Japan and U.S. relations strengthened in 2015 through the release of revised guidelines, which provide new and expanded forms of security-related cooperation, according to the State Department. Japan provides bases as well as financial and material support to U.S. forces to maintain stability in the region.

This is a developing story.

This is the ACX Crystal, the containership that collided with the Fitzgerald.

US Navy admiral sentenced to 18 months in ‘Fat Leonard’ bribery scandal

FORMER ADMIRAL ROBERT GILBEAU COULDN’T RESIST ASIAN HOOKERS.

Third world bribery proved too much for an American admiral when Asian prostitutes were dangled in front of him.

Excerpt from Navy Times

SAN DIEGO — Over two decades, Robert Gilbeau rose through the ranks to Navy admiral and earned a chest-full of honors for his service, including a Bronze Star and Purple Heart. During that period he also partied across Southeast Asia with a gregarious Malaysian businessman who paid for lavish dinners, drinks at karaoke bars and prostitutes.

That businessman, known as “Fat Leonard,” is the centerpiece of a massive bribery scandal involving Navy officers, and Gilbeau last year pleaded guilty to lying to investigators about their relationship. He was the first active-duty admiral convicted of a federal crime and on Wednesday he learned his penalty: 18 months in jail.

Acting U.S. Attorney Alana W. Robinson called it a “somber day.”

“When tempted by parties and prostitutes, one of our most respected leaders chose karaoke over character, and cover-up over confession,” she said. “In doing so he forever tarnished the reputation of a revered institution.”

Gilbeau acknowledged his wrongdoing in federal court in San Diego.

GUILBEAU GOING TO COURT WITH HIS SERVICE DOG.

He told the judge he is “deeply sorry” and cannot explain his actions. He stood in court with his fluffy white dog, which accompanies him as part of his treatment for post-traumatic stress. Gilbeau’s defense had argued that his PTSD and a traumatic brain injury from a blast in Iraq should be taken into account, though prosecutors said he was exaggerating his condition because he knew he was going to get caught.

“I never wanted to end my career this way,” said the 56-year-old Navy veteran, who earned a Purple Heart and Bronze Star for his service in Iraq in 2007. “I’m still proud of my career and to be an American.”

Gilbeau wrote in a letter to the judge that “I have no one to blame but myself.”

He wrote that while his PTSD is not an excuse, it gave him a desire to “make self-destructive decisions.”

Gilbeau was convicted in June after admitting that he lied when he told federal agents that he had never received any gifts from Leonard Glenn Francis. The Navy allowed him to retire in October but reduced his rank from rear admiral to captain.

Nicknamed “Fat Leonard” because of his wide girth, Francis has admitted to bribing Navy officials with more than $500,000 in cash, prostitutes, and other gifts in exchange for classified information to help his company, Glenn Defense Marine Asia. He is awaiting sentencing.

Francis and his company that supplies food and fuel to ships overbilled the Navy by more than $34 million, prosecutors said.

FAT LEONARD.

It looks like Gilbeau got very little in return for whatever classified information he supplied to Fat Leonard. The half mil in bribes were spread out over several Navy officials. Gilbeau caught a break when he was allowed to retire. He’ll still get a fat Captain’s pension, which depending on years of service, can be up to $8,000 a month.

Fake News? Russia Says It Can Wipe Out Entire U.S. Navy with ONE Electronic Bomb

Fox News

Russia has claimed it can disable the entire US Navy in one fell swoop using powerful electronic signal jamming.

A news report from the country – where the media is essentially controlled by the state – said the technology could render planes, ships and missiles useless.

The newsreader says: “Today, our Russian Electronic Warfare (REW) troops can detect and neutralise any target from a ship’s system and a radar, to a satellite.”

The news report claims a single Russian war plane flew several times around American destroyer the USS Donald Cook in the Black Sea several years ago, disabling its systems and leaving it helpless.

The report also claims they are capable to creating electronic jamming domes over their bases that make them invisible on radar screens.

The propaganda piece even quotes top US General Frank Gorenc as saying: “Russian electronic weapons completely paralyse the functioning of American electronic equipment installed on missiles, aircraft and ships.”

The reporter adds: “You don’t need to have expensive weapons to win – powerful radio-electronic jamming is enough.”

The news comes after Donald Trump dispatched the USS Carl Vinson, powered by nuclear reactors, carrying almost 100 aircraft and accompanied by destroyers, a cruiser, and a submarine to the Korean Peninsula.

And the commander-in-chief is said to be bolstering American deployment in the region by sending the USS Ronald Reagan and the USS Nimitz to the Sea of Japan next week.

Russia, along with China, is said to have sent a spy ship to the area to ward off the task force amid rising tensions in the region.

And Putin urged the US to show “restraint”.

Meanwhile, in response to this story, Popular Mechanics reports that there is no electronic bomb.

The Russian TV report is an explainer on Russian Electronic Warfare (REW) troops, which the reporter claims can “neutralize any target” from “a ship’s system to a radar to a satellite.” This apparently includes synthetic aperture radars on NATO satellites, aircraft, and other platforms, which can form images of targets in the air and on the ground using radar waves. In this case, “neutralizing” doesn’t mean blowing something to bits, but rather jamming its radar sensors to effectively render it blind.

The Russian news report concludes with the bombastic line, “You don’t need to have expensive weapons to win – powerful radio-electronic jamming is enough.” That claim isn’t supported by the actual report, which says REW systems can only shut down enemy radars and hide friendly forces. To actually win a war, you need to kill the enemy and break stuff—something radio waves can’t do.

The Russian television and Sun tabloid story are both blends of real and fake news. Russia’s electronic warfare troops do indeed have some powerful electronic warfare systems—but pay no mind to oddball claims that they can make enemy sailors resign out of sheer fear or win wars singlehandedly.

U.S. Navy Redesigning Submarines to Accomodate Women

I’m shocked. Gender is supposed to be a social construct.

Excerpt from Associated Press

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Every submarine in the U.S. fleet was designed with the height, reach and strength of men in mind, from the way valves are placed to how display screens are angled.

That’s going to change.

With women now serving aboard submarines, defense contractor Electric Boat is designing what will be the first Navy subs built specifically to accommodate female crew members.

The designers are doing the obvious things, such as adding more doors and washrooms to create separate sleeping and bathing areas for men and women and to give them more privacy. But they are also making more subtle modifications that may not have been in everyone’s periscope when the Navy admitted women into the Silent Service.

For example, they are lowering some overhead valves and making them easier to turn, and installing steps in front of the triple-high bunk beds and stacked laundry machines.

The first vessel built with some of the new features, the future USS New Jersey, is expected to be delivered to the Navy in 2021.

The Navy lifted its ban on women on submarines in 2010, starting with officers. About 80 female officers and roughly 50 enlisted women are now serving on subs, and their numbers are expected to climb into the hundreds over the next few years.

For now, the Navy is retrofitting existing subs with extra doors and designated washrooms to accommodate women. But Electric Boat in Groton, Connecticut, is at work on a redesign of the Navy’s Virginia-class fast-attack subs and is also developing a brand-new class of ballistic-missile submarines, relying on body measurements for both men and women.

“We have a clean sheet of paper, so from the ground up, we’ll optimize for both men and women,” said Brian Wilson, Electric Boat director of the new ballistic-missile sub program.

Electric Boat officials had no immediate estimate of how much the modifications will cost.

As anyone who watches war movies knows, submariners are always turning valves, whether to operate machinery, redistribute water between tanks or isolate part of a system that has been damaged.

REEEEEEEEEE. THANKS DADDY. I CAN DRIVE A SUBMARINE.

Kim Jong-Un ‘orders IMMEDIATE EVACUATION of Pyongyang’ as tensions with US escalate

Regime change takes one bullet. It doesn’t take an army and it doesn’t take a war.

China is the wild card in this developing story.

No one knows whether this is a game of Trumpian chess or something of more substance.

express.co.uk

NORTH Korea leader Kim Jong-un has reportedly ordered residents of the country’s capital Pyongyang to leave the city immediately, sparking fears he may be preparing for war.

Reports in Russian newspaper Pravda Report claim more than 600,000 people – around 25 per cent of the city’s population – are being urgently evacuated, as tensions escalate between North Korea and the United States.

According to South Korean media, residents in the kingdom have said goodbye to each other, sparking concerns the tyrannical leader could be about to act after months of nuclear weapon testing.

Foreign reporters have been told to prepare for a “big and important event” on North Korea’s biggest national celebration, called ‘Day of the Sun’.

A tweet from Channel NewsAsia’s Beijing Correspondent Jeremy Koh said: “We’ve been told to be ready to move out at 6.20am, but no idea why. Also, no cell phones allowed.”

More than 200 foreign journalists are in Pyongyang as the country marks the 105th birthday of its founding president Kim Il Sung on April 15.

Officials in North Korea have already warned nuclear war could break out at any minute thanks to the “extremely tense” situation on the Korean Peninsula.

The US sent a navy strike group towards the Western Pacific in a show of force, with North Korea retorting with warnings of a nuclear attack in retaliation to any show of aggression.

China has also moved 150,000 soldiers close to the North Korean border in preparation for war.

The move comes after president Trump launched 59 Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airfield in response for the country’s brutal chemical attack which left 79 civilians dead.

North Korean officials have given no clues as to the nature of the “surprise event” or where it would take place.

However, past announcements of a similar nature have turned out to be relatively low-key.

n 2016 foreign journalists underwent hours of investigation by North Korean officials ahead of what turned out to be a pop concert to mark the finale of a ruling Workers’ Party congress.

However, on the 100th Day of the Sun, held in April 2012, North Korea attempted to launch a long-range rocket.

With war tensions raging, officials worldwide are wondering whether Kim Jong-un will use the special date to strike America after months of threats over nuclear weapons.

Remember what good buddies Dennis Rodman and Kim became during his trip to the North? Let’s put him to work negotiating a peace.

Basketball diplomacy might not be such a bad idea.
