HEY VETERANS! - Here’s how 3 million more people will get military shopping benefits

Image
By Karen Jowers

As about 3 million more people will soon be eligible to shop at military stores, officials are working to make sure these new customers will have access to bases, and that the shelves will be stocked.

Starting Jan. 1, all service-connected disabled veterans, Purple Heart recipients, former prisoners of war and primary veteran caregivers will be eligible to shop at commissaries and exchanges, and officials from three federal agencies are preparing the way.

The newly eligible customers will also be able to use certain morale, welfare and recreation activities.

It’s the largest patronage expansion in more than 60 years, said Virginia Penrod, principal deputy assistant secretary of defense for manpower and reserve affairs, who spoke at a recent meeting of the American Logistics Association.

The departments of Defense, Veterans Affairs, and Homeland Security have been planning for the expansion for more than six months, with four teams totaling about 70 people. Among other …

The Wrong Side of Pete Buttigieg’s History

Image
By JOHN HIRSCHAUER

P
ete Buttigieg was conducting a “town hall” with Jake Tapper on CNN last night when he was asked what he thinks of religious Democrats who oppose gay marriage, given his wont to condemn Mike Pence for the same.

He responded by invoking his experience in Indiana, where “people were able to move past old prejudices and move into the future.” Ultimately, he said, it “is not an easy conversation for a lot of people who have, frankly, been brought up in a certain way and are struggling to get onto the right side of history.”

Buttigieg uses this schema anytime he is asked about traditional religious believers: He will rebuke anonymous remnants of the pre-Obergefell consensus in a conciliatory tone, offering them a path to redemption on the cheap, appealing to exogenous forces of History and progress to cudgel the hangers-on toward a reluctant embrace of “the future.”

At a Pride festival in June, Buttigieg tacked the same line. “There are millions of Americans,” he began,…

The Mark Levin Show - 8/19/2019

Image
Description On Monday's Mark Levin show, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib keep getting special privileges despite their disdain for America. Their press conference today was a stunt; a stunt to advance the anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party. Congressmen like Jerry Nadler actually have Jews in their districts yet they defend these two anti-Semites who sound like neo-Nazis. Unlike the U.S, Israel is surrounded by enemies and is constantly fighting for their survival. Why should Israel admit these two supporters of the BDS movement into their nation when the BDS movement seeks to destroy Israel. These two well-informed Congresswomen know that Israel had passed a law banning supporters of the BDS movement from entering Israel. Then, the Palestinian Authority operates like mobsters keeping their own people poor while they themselves become very wealthy. In 1941, Germany's promise to wipe out the Jews living in Palestine so the predecessors to the P.L.O. sided with the S.S. So much o…

Report: White House Considering Payroll Tax Cut to Boost Economy

Image
By John Carney

White House officials are mulling a temporary payroll tax cut as a way to ward off an economic slowdown, according to the Washington Post.

The economy has slowed since the first-quarter pace of 3.1 percent and now appears to be on track for growth of around two percent for the year. Fears of a recession, however, have been rising, with economists now saying that there is about a 35 percent chance the economy contracts next year. The yield curve briefly inverted last week, often a signal that a recession looms.

According to the Washington Post, the talks are in their early stages. A cut to payroll taxes would have to be approved by Congress and could not be done by the White House alone.

Americans employed by businesses pay a 6.2 percent “payroll tax” on their earnings, with their employers paying the same amount. Self-employed Americans pay a 12.4 percent tax. That tax is levied to finance Social Security. Americans also pay a Medicare payroll tax of 1.45 for employees …

Tlaib gets emotional as Omar calls for Congress to act over Israel travel restrictions

Image
By Alex Pappas | Fox News

An emotional Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib on Monday held back tears during a news conference as she and Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar condemned Israel’s recent decision to impose restrictions on visiting the country, with the Democrats calling for Congress to get involved.

“We in the United States have a constructive role to play,” Omar said at the news conference in St. Paul, Minn. “We give Israel more than $3 billion in aid every year. This is predicated on them being an important ally in the region, and the only democracy in the Middle East. But, denying a visit to duly elected members of Congress is not consistent with being an ally.”

Omar said lawmakers “have a responsibility to conduct oversight over our government’s foreign policy and what happens with the millions of dollars we send in aid.”

The two Muslim lawmakers held an afternoon news conference at the Minnesota State Capitol Building with Palestinian-American and Jewish-American residents of Minnesota…

'I Have Made Mistakes’: Elizabeth Warren Apologizes at Native American Forum

Image
By Hannah Bleau

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) participated on Monday in the Native American Presidential Forum in Sioux City, Iowa, and apologized for making “mistakes” in the past.

Warren was the second speaker out of a slew of fellow 2020 candidates slated to speak at the forum over the next two days. She told the crowd she has “listened” and “learned a lot” and offered another apology for her past “mistakes,” which involved listing herself as a minority in the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) deskbook for more than a decade. She also listed herself as a Native American on her Texas Bar registration card.

“Like anyone who’s been honest with themselves, I know that I have made mistakes,” Warren told the crowd. “I am sorry for harm I have caused.”

“I have listened and I have learned a lot, and I am grateful for the many conversations we have had together,” she added:



Warren has failed to offer a consistent explanation for her previous claims to Native American heritage.

“I l…

MSNBC Guest Tiffany Cross: It Is Not White People’s Place to Determine If Trump Is Racist

Image
By Pam Key

Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” The Beat DC managing editor Tiffany Cross said if you are not “a person of color,” it’s not “your place” to determine if President Donald Trump is a racist.

Cross said, “It’s accurate, you have to call a thing a thing. I think that’s part of the reason why we got here because in 2015, when he kicked off his campaign with a bunch of racist rhetoric, there was a hesitancy to call it out. The first two years of his presidency when he introduced ridiculous white supremacist policies and would follow that up with additional racist rhetoric and we have an echo chamber of people repeating these things, we didn’t call a thing a thing. So I feel like now finally we are here. I understand there are maybe some people who get tired hearing about it. You know, kind of tough luck. There are a lot of people who live it and endure it every day for decades and centuries who get tired of experiencing it.”

She added, “I think a good rule of thumb is, if you are not…
