The survey, conducted last fall, spanned all branches of the military and included both enlisted and officer ranks. The average length of service was around 16 years.

Out of the 229 participants, 169 were active duty service members. Eighty-seven percent, or 199, were unvaccinated against COVID-19. Of the 30 who were vaccinated, only two said they had wanted to do it.

Twenty out of 30 individuals who acknowledged taking a COVID-19 vaccine claim they were injured by it. Ninety-three percent of the participants said they know someone they believe has been injured by one. -Epoch Times

One 20-year Army combat veteran told the outlet that he opposed the mandate.

"I’m not a lab rat and neither are the people I work with," he said, adding "While holding out [from taking the vaccines], I was forced to wear a mask and was often singled out for being unvaccinated."

After bringing his concerns to his command, "I was simply told: ‘I don’t make the rules.’"

He added that if he hadn't gotten vaccinated, he would have been prohibited from coming home to see his family at a time when his wife was at risk of a serious medical concern that might require his presence at a moment's notice.

"You can see I had no choice but to take the shot," he said. "At the same time I would be prevented from being with my wife, my orders to deploy were also being threatened."

Claire's Observations:  and the American Military is collectively whining about  lowered recruitment numbers?!?  I am having a double palm to forehead moment at velocity, upon reading this.

Conservative Republicans have managed to defeat the fake border security bill wrapped in a political ploy inside of a Ukraine bailout bill. Of course, no Republican should have ever imagined that giving open-border Democrats everything they asked for was a smart strategic position, but that’s what they very nearly did.

Republicans had already passed a real border security bill within a few months of taking control of the House of Representatives following the 2022 midterm elections. HR-2 actually secured the borderby demanding that the Biden administration finish the border wall, ending Biden’s power to process aliens who don’t enter at ports of entry, and shutting off the federal spigot that funds NGOs who aid and abet illegal aliens (“inadmissible non-U.S. citizens”) by providing lodging and other resources.

Moreover, HR-2 shut down the ability of the Biden administration to grant asylum to the millions of migrants who don’t meet the legal criteria for asylum. But those are just a few of the vital components of HR-2, which is indeed a border security bill.

If Democrats really wanted border security, they would have passed HR-2 in the Senate last year. But even if they didn’t want to give Republicans a win with HR-2, Democrats still could have incorporated the language of HR-2 in their grand compromise to prove that they really meant it when they said they wanted to stop the flow of illegal immigrants into the United States.

Instead, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell teamed up with his buddy Chuck Schumer to use their fake border security bill as a fig leaf to cover up their real goal – freeing billions of dollars to go to Ukraine and Israel.

Following a week in which special counsel Robert Hur soberly reported that President Biden is a "well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory" and "diminished faculties" -- a man who couldn't remember when his term as vice president began or ended, or even "within several years" when his son Beau died -- scrutiny of Biden's fitness for office has reached a fever pitch across major media, with some earnestly examining off-ramps for Biden's shaky re-election bid. 

The special counsel report was bad enough by itself, but Biden himself poured gasoline on the fire last week:

  • He twice mistakenly referred to the dead male German chancellor Helmut Kohl when he was describing a discussion with living female Angela Merkel
  • He cited a conversation he had with François Mitterand -- the French president who died 27 years ago -- when that conversation was actually with President Emmanuel Macron
  • At a press conference meant to bolster confidence in his mental health, Biden referred to Egyptian President Sissi as the president of Mexico

Claire's Observations:  The Dementocrats are in one hell of a bind right now; By-DI-Biden's dementia has been showcased to not only for US voters, but to the world; and that world is laughing at the US right now.  What we are dealing with right now, is an Obama 2.0 Presidency, and what is terrifying, is the degree to which a potential Obama 3.0 presidency may well be in the works, if in fact "Michelle" Obama is drafted.  But even more terrifying is the thought of a brokered convention, which might see Hillary Clinton slither into position as the party's "Favorite Daughter".  I would like to gently remind the Dementocrats that they tried this in 2016, to an absolute, resounding thumping by Trump. 

 And Gavin Newsom?!?  Oh, yeah;  He'll do for this nation... precisely what he has done for California, now awash with drugs; homelessness; a failed education system, massive illegal immigration, and insane levels of crime in his major cities.

Exactly a week after a failed attempt, the House has impeached Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, under whose tenure more than 10 million illegal immigrants have entered the US - doubling the existing population of migrants.

Claire's Observations: This country, with a known national deficit of trillions of dollars, cannot afford to feed; educate; house; heal those who are sick;  and imprison those found guilty of crimes.   As reported by the CBO on 7 February, 2024:  

"The Budget and Economic Outlook: 2024 to 2034

In CBO’s projections, federal budget deficits total $20 trillion over the 2025–2034 period and federal debt held by the public reaches 116 percent of GDP. Economic growth slows to 1.5 percent in 2024 and then continues at a moderate pace."

 So what is the real agenda here?!?  To turn the major cities in this county into crime and disease-infested swamps, from which hard working people flee?  Or create a dictatorship so draconian, as to make the world described in Orwell's "1984", or Terry Gilliam's film "Brazil",  look almost paradisaical,  in comparison?

To those of you with kids, and the means to do so, you may want to be sure you have a current passport, or passports in place; you may decide you will need them, sooner rather than later.

Racial Justice™ ideology has regressed precipitously since the heady days of MLK Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” vision of a society that judges people based on merit rather than whatever fashionable or unfashionable identity group they belong to.

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by their character.”
-MLK Jr., 1963

How is a DEI race grifter to manufacture a career for him/her/zherself if everyone is judged according to what they do and not who (or what) they fuck or their self-diagnosis as autistic or whatever?

How are the militant lesbians who populate the Gender and Women’s Studies department at your local publicly-funded state university to justify next year’s budget request if group identity is truly subordinate to individual merit?

And how is the corporate state to divide and conquer a population not self-imploding along identity fault lines in order to distract from the crimes of the ruling class?

          RelatedWhy ‘Diversity Is Our Greatest Strength’ is a Corporate Lie

No, no, the colorblind society that MLK espoused won’t do at all.

In that vein, academics are now made to include “positionality statements” as disclaimers to their published work — ostensibly, as a way of legitimizing or delegitimizing the findings therein based on their (mostly immutable) irrelevant personal characteristics.

Claire's Observations; I had the great good fortune of attending, and graduating from, Cal State Dominguez Hills, at that time a state college before it Cal State University Dominguez Hills  It was a rainbow school which included every ethnicity imaginable.  Yet all those people were able to work together on team projects; argue with each other, constructively, and not belligerently, and kept their "eyes on the prize" of that college diploma, through which they proved their own worth, not only to themselves, but to potential employers.

I don't know how I would feel, going back to the campus today, and to what extent I would find myself ostracized as a libertarian, straight female, in a loving relationship with a husband with whom I have spent the last 30 years.  Frankly, looking at how education has "devolved" into personal vendettas with axes to grind, I am not certain that I would even want to try.

New J6 footage released showed a highly-trained bomb-sniffing dog missed the DNC ‘pipe bomb’ just a few feet away.

As previously reported — A mysterious suspect planted two pipe bombs at the RNC and DNC DC Headquarters on January 5, 2021. The alleged bomb was safely detonated by a bomb squad on January 6 – however, there is no proof the bombs were even operable.

In fact, FBI whistleblower Kyle Seraphin reported in May 2023 that the technicians who worked on the program told him the devices were inoperable. The bomb-sniffing canine missing the ‘pipe bomb’ gives credence to Kyle Seraphin’s reporting.

The culprit was caught on video but never caught by the FBI – the greatest intelligence service in the world.
