Rebuttal of Democrats’ and other anti-defense types’ blatant lies on DOD budget

A new “supercommittee” of Republicans and Democrats met recently on Capitol Hill to discuss possible ways to solve the nation’s fiscal woes and, if possible, replace the sequester with other, more carefully designed, budget cuts. In the opening of that meeting, the Democrats, specifically Sens. Ron Wyden and Bernie Sanders, stated some very blatant lies… Read More »

Stupid Senators Suckered By Obama On Nuke Deterrence

  URGENT PLEA: A number of Senators have introduced amendments to the NDAA that would bar Obama from cutting the nuclear deterrent unilaterally, scrapping any ICBM squadrons, or honoring arms reduction agreements that no one abides by. Dear Readers, please call your Senators (and other states’ Senators) and tell them to vote for ALL of… Read More »

Rebuttal of Friedman’s and Preble’s blatant lies about US nuclear weapons

On November 14th, the NY Slimes newspaper published a litany of blatant lies about the US nuclear arsenal,written by Cato’s Benjamin Friedman and Christopher Preble, two anti-defense hacks employed by CATO. In it, Friedman and Preble falsely claim that: The US nuclear arsenal is “bloated” and amounts to overkill; Nuclear weapons and the nuclear triad… Read More »

Rebuttal of political admiral’s false claims about Chinese submarines

On Saturday, during the Reagan National Defense Forum at the Reagan Presidential Library, Admiral Jonathan Greenert, a political admiral whom President Obama appointed Chief of Naval Operations in 2011, dismissed China’s entire ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) fleet as not being credible. He furthermore said: “For a submarine-launched ballistic missile to be effective it has to… Read More »

Rebuttal of Stratfor’s false claims on China’s ballistic missile subs

The open-sources-based Stratfor think-tank has recently published an article on China’s ballistic missile submarines (SSBNs) that downplays the threat these submarines, and China in general, pose to the US. Because of this, and because it contains numerous factual errors, I’ve decided to pen this rebuttal. The article begins by repeating the US-China Economic and Security… Read More »

The Few, The Proud, The Unisex

When Ronald Reagan was president he described members of the U.S. Marine Corps in a memorable phrase that is featured on the Marines’ Heritage Museum website: “Some people wonder all their lives if they’ve made a difference. The Marines don’t have that problem.” The generation of paper–pushers and PR–minded behind–kissers that inhabit the Pentagon and… Read More »

Rebuttal of Tom Collina’s and Kingston Reif’s call to cut nukes

The US nuclear deterrent – cut by over 75% since the Cold War’s end – is now barely adequate, yet the leftist anti-nuclear-deterrence movement wants to cut it deeply even further and eventually scrap it altogether. They want that to happen unilaterally, without Russia or anyone else’s participation. Why? Because these people, such as the… Read More »

New enemy air defense systems mean ONLY stealthy aircraft are viable

Russia has recently decided to sell the state-of-the-art S-300PMU2 air defense systems (commonly known as SAMs, though the term SAM applies only to the missiles themselves) to the Syrian government to prevent any foreign intervention against the Assad regime, and to sell the equally capable S-300VM system to Iran. Earlier, it agreed to sell even… Read More »

Mr. President, Enough With the Lies, the Fear, and the Spin

First, let me start off by saying, this is not a Democrat vs. Republican piece. This is a “administration gone stupid” piece. These budget games have been played for years. These fights over who knows best have been played for years. But Mafia-style thuggery, like this, should be left in Chicago, New York, Miami, or… Read More »

A Disgrace Worthy of a Resignation

It is unconscionable. It is rude, insensitivity, callus and unacceptable. With the news that family members of fallen soldiers killed in Afghanistan are not only being denied death benefits, but are being denied transportation to Dover AFB for the arrival of the caskets containing the remains of their loved ones, the Obama Administration has crossed… Read More »

Rebuttal of liberals’ attack on AirSea Battle
