Exploiting Dead Cops for Political Gain Ought to be a Crime... says Ruben Navarrett Jr. in my local dead tree paper yesterday morning. My first instinct was to move it right along to the recycling bin where it would do the most good. But since this goes well beyond the Left's typical hypocrisy, I thought it should have a reply. Mr. Navarett states:
It is grotesque that anyone would ever seize on the killing of a police officer for political purposes. Alas, the practice is bipartisan.
"Grotesque" Noted.
On the right, when the alleged assailant is an illegal immigrant, we often see a cheap and shrill attempt to turn the grief of families and communities over a fallen guardian into outrage over illegal immigration and "open borders."
A "cheap and shrill attempt to turn the grief of families and communities... into outrage" Got it.

You see, for me, the concept of dead policemen is personal and painful. It's not just another issue du jour to be played with. Still, mercenary politicians use it as a chew toy. May they choke on it.

May I suggest that Mr. Navarrett either didn't go far enough, didn't think it through or couldn't see past his own biases?

Maybe the outrage should be when people seize on any killing for political purposes? Recently, on the border, two children died because of medical problems related to their long trek across Mexico. How many on the Left immediately made a "cheap and shrill attempt" to turn the grief of families and communities over these children into outrage over Trump's immigration and borders policies, or against ICE and the Border Patrol?

After Sandy Hook, the "ghouls of gun control" seized on the killing of children for political purposes, proposing numerous gun control methods, none of which would have prevented the shootings. Or at Parkland, where laws already on the books, had they been properly enforced, would have taken the shooter off the street, long before the fateful shooting. "Grotesque", as Mr. Navarrett would say.

In Ferguson, Missouri, there were those who seized on the killing by a police officer for political purposes, giving birth to the bogus "Hands up, don't shoot" movement.

The practice is bipartisan, but alas, it seems to primarily find its home on the Left. If Mr. Navarrett wants to criminalize or at best stigmatize the killing of a police officer for political purposes, may I suggest that he expand his horizons to include the deaths of those shot by the police until such time as they can be thoroughly investigated? The deaths of illegal immigrants who tragically may be sick or dying before they ever enter the country is also not "another issue du jour to be played with", not a "chew toy".

Time for Mr. Navarrett to step up and not be choked by his own chew toys of deaths that he approves of politicizing, not just the ones he disapproves.

Now, it's ready for the recycling!

The Wheels Go Round And Round, Then Fall Off

Nancy Pelosi thought that she was being oh so clever regarding the SOTUS when she told POTUS to choose a later date for the live address, or deliver his speech in writing because of the government shutdown.

She still fails to realize that she is dealing with a VSG and should have expected a stunning comeback. Well, here it is:
bah dah bing 
On Thursday afternoon, President Trump informed Speaker Pelosi her “public relations” trip to Afghanistan, Egypt, and Brussels has been postponed so that she can stay in DC and negotiate with him.

The President canceled Pelosi’s flight just one hour before she was scheduled to depart — Pelosi and other lawmakers were on the bus en route to the airport.

Trump told her to fly commercial on her own dime.

According to Fox News reporter, Chad Pergram, furious phone calls are flying back and forth from The Hill to the State to the Pentagon and White House.

Until the government shutdown is ended with a $5 billion gift card from Walls-R-US, this is the bus that Pelosi and her staff will be riding.

It's A Trap!

A "Reduction In Force" (RIF) can be used to reduce the federal bureaucracy. This way POTUS can start weeding out some of the dead weight and DS trash that infects the government. The shills are going crazy now that the 22 business day restriction nears.
"When agencies furlough employees for more than 30 calendar days or 22 discontinuous work days, they must use RIF procedures. An employee can be terminated or moved into an available position….
[…]If this was the plan all along, it would explain why President Trump goaded Chuck and Nancy in his televised meeting with them last year, boasting that he would claim credit for the shutdown. How could they resist a prolonged shutdown when he made it so easy to blame him?"

Women In Combat..... Nah

The optics may be awesome, you know, a steely-eyed, comely lass with a M-4 slung over one shoulder, her hip thrust aggressively forward and a smoldering look on her face. Yowssir!

But when the Marines take the concept out for a test drive, the results aren't so awesome.
In September 2015 the Marine Corps released a study comparing the performance of gender-integrated and male-only infantry units in simulated combat. The all-male teams greatly outperformed the integrated teams, whether on shooting, surmounting obstacles or evacuating casualties. Female Marines were injured at more than six times the rate of men during preliminary training—unsurprising, since men’s higher testosterone levels produce stronger bones and muscles. Even the fittest women (which the study participants were) must work at maximal physical capacity when carrying a 100-pound pack or repeatedly loading heavy shells into a cannon.
Let's be clear, I have a daughter who was in the Army for eight years, had two deployments to Afghanistan and will be deployed again through her National Guard unit. I am so proud of her and I wouldn't change a thing. She does her absolute best and is an excellent soldier. But she is in SIGINT.

There is a definite need for qualified soldiers, Marines, sailors and airmen regardless of race or sex. There are many, many support positions that must be filled in order to kept our warriors prepared. But combat is another story. There are physical limitations that must be recognized and addressed without any fault or failing implied due to gender.
