AP Pumps Out More #FakeNews



Of course, Kamala Harris seized upon this #FakeNews.

JR Salzman did what the #FakeNews media hopes you won't do, and dig into what the story actually says, and what it doesn't say, but merely dishonestly implies.



The rest of his tweets, taken out of Twitter format, below:


For starters, these are just new recruits. They are not soldiers, and haven't gone to basic training yet. All they did was sign a piece of paper and hold up their right hand. All of that stuff hinges on all their paperwork and background info being up to par.

AP actually used a recruit from Iran and Pakistan as examples. Those of you outraged do realize a lot of people in those countries donít like America very much, and therefore vetting recruits is very important?

Let me put this another way. Most people support background checks on people trying to purchase a gun. Well, these people are going to be given live grenades and automatic weapons and security clearances. When it comes to the background checks for foreign recruits, it's a BFD.

I very clearly remember the enlistment process. One of the last things is to sit in a cubicle with a lawyer. They say if you lied about anything, or if your background check isn't as clean as you say, we will kick you out and then sue you to recoup any money we've given you.

I'm going CoE as a civilian, and I have to be background checked with fingerprints before I get a serious offer.

I imagine enlisting is a bit more than that. They are gonna give you a high-powered weapon, courtesy of Uncle Sam. They don't give that out to just anybody. And certainly not to Hadji.

There are so many holes it that story it ridiculous. Big Army staffs up and down. We just had a force reduction that impacted all units. They let some pretty decent people who wanted to stay, go.

Same here.

Oddly enough, it got bought by USA Today and it actually improved the content. The editor was an uberlib, and when U-T bought them one of the things they did was fire the local leftist staff to save money on payroll.

So while the national content is still liberal, the local news went neutral.

There have even been posters here (I forget who, but they weren't even trolls), who thought illegals in the army was an ok proposition. I've never understood this. If these people have so little regard for our laws, why would you give them guns and entrust them with our nation's security? If there were an invasion from the south, would you trust them not to side with the invaders when they despise the principles that run this country? I expect the end of Germany and the UK will be when Muslims are put in charge of their police and their armies, and their (disarmed) citizens will be powerless to do anything about it.

Army detailed Field Recruiter back in the late 80s. At that time, you needed proof of US citizenship or a green card in order to enlist.

Misdemeanor conviction or higher required a waiver, as did multiple minor non-traffic convictions. The era of enlisting to avoid jail (i.e. a judge acting as a recruiter) was over by then.

Records check was done, unless you were going into one of selected specialties/duty assignments requiting a clearance. Then a full background check was done.

People are different. I took YMCA lessons every year as a kid and still couldn't learn to swim. Also I was made of pure bone and just sank. They'd say "just roll on your back and float". Sorry, that's like asking a stone to float. It may have the best intentions, but it's not buoyant.

Then one year, maybe around 12, it just clicked and I could swim. Got to be pretty good at it in a few years.

But the one time when I was seven and we visited some long lost friend of Dad's who had a pool and said "the way to teach him is to just throw him in"? Yeah, child abuse.

234 70% of black Americans can't swim.

Because racism, of course. No, really. That's what they blame it on. Someone wasn't allowed in a whites only pool 100 years ago = blacks in 2018 aren't allowed to know how to swim.

235 Misdemeanor conviction or higher required a waiver, as did multiple
minor non-traffic convictions. The era of enlisting to avoid jail (i.e. a
judge acting as a recruiter) was over by then.

Myself and 6 buddies enlisted in 72-3 due to a judge's suggestion for one of us. Fort Polk had a way with wayward youts back when.

236 Dirty Yankee!

....

There is no "dirty Yankee" category. There are only three Yankee categories:

Yankee: Anyone living north of the Mason Dixon Line that comes down to visit and tell us how uncultured we are and then returns to the North

Damn Yankee: A Yanked that moves South and stays and tries to f*ck the place they move to up in a manner in which they had previously f*cked up their Northern residence

Good Yankee: a Yankee at or near death

Hope this guide helps!

237 No, really:

"While
it's often said jokingly that black folks don't swim, that they drown
at such an alarming rate is no laughing matter. It isn't just because
black people hate the water. Though 70 percent of black folks can't
swim, lack of access to public pools and a history of segregated swimming have kept many of them out of the water."

244 Re: the Jordan accusations .

I"m an OSU alum and attended OSU about the time Jordan was there as either a student or as an assistant coach.

The Debasio guy filed a petition regarding sex abuse allegations with the university in April of this year. Jordan wasn't mentioned at all at the time, but the timing of this petition was right after Michigan State settled with the Nasser victims and started paying them $2M each. The petition was reported in the student newspaper and additionally on 11 Warriors, a well known OSU sport's blog and then the Columbus Dispatch.

The allegations were that Richard Strauss , MD had groped, or sexually harassed student wrestlers when he was an athletic dept. physician back in the 1970's. The guy who filed the petition was a former wrestler and then it was finally revealed it was the guy who owns a sports media company in Columbus.

Richard Strauss left the university in 1994. He moved to California and then in 2005, committed suicide.

So we are to believe that 30 plus years ago, an athletic dept MD grabbed the penises of young wrestlers on numerous occasions during exams for sexual reasons and no one has said a word about it for those 30 years.

Right at the end of Baiers interview with Jordan, he read a new report from Politico that said that these wrestlers said that the team had to walk a gawker gauntlet through Larkins hall on their way to the showers.

Uhh, yeah. Larkins Hall at the time was where most of the athletic courts, pools, etc. that were open to all students were located. When you finished whatever athletic endeavor you were attempting, you had to walk across the building to showers and lockers. Big deal. And I can remember doing the gawking along with my female roomates when an obviously buff guy was walking by.

I 100 percent believe Jordan in this case. This case is so bogus and for OSU to have hired Perkins Coie back in April to investigate this is so upsetting. Jordan said in his interview that PC stated that he refused to return their investigative calls, that they couldn't reach him. He then said that since they were able to find a British spy to fabricate a dossier, they should have been able to find a congressmans public email and phone number.

He is being set up and if OSU wants any more money from me, they better correct this.

Put differently: Lack of access to swimming pools and public beaches meant that many black Americans were denied the opportunity to learn how to swim; and intergenerational fear of the water stops their descendants from learning now.

And then say it is black fault:
So if you have children, the key is to start them young. Are you grown and cant swim? Well, it is never too late to learn.

Yankee is a context dependent word.

In the American South, Yankee means Northern. In the American North, Yankee means New England.

In New England, Yankee means mostly Protestant mostly English descended who have been here forever and share certain values, which include frugality, ingenuity, do it yourself-ism, and a lack of ostentation.

Within New England there are gradations of Yankee which go from Boston Brahmin down to my father's people, New Hampshire Swamp Yankees.

Same with Pruitt, his political corpse is now chum in the water - though he was/is an unforgivably stupid character who risked vital national interests for some idiotic perks, from the looks of it. Since he's being replaced by a former coal lobbyist (bwahahaha), I have a warm feeling about it all, for now. But still.

Kid was literally terrified of the water.


Best to get these things out of the way when they are infants. At my nephews' baptism I held him over the baptismal font and the lay minister dipped a clam shell in the font and poured it over his head. He was giggling over it.

Trump can stick, mostly, to "fake news", but even he should sometimes have a pitchy specific factual rebuttal attached. And the WH and cabinet comms shops should long ago have have standing counter-programming operations, to dismantle and humiliate these non-stop press distortions and lies, 24/7.

Conversely, I once read an account of an astronaut making his first spacewalk on the Mir space station. As soon as he exited the hatch, he saw the Earth far below and suddenly got a sense of how high he was.

He was in orbit, so he had no chance of falling. He was on a tether so he couldn't drift away. But he spent a few minutes hanging on for dear life until the feeling passed.

I can't spend the next 4 hours in the waiting room. Can't do it.

Other than the back pain, I feel fine. My color is good, no fever. I have an appetite.

I did buy some laxative. Took it 2 hours ago. It's been giving me occasional cramps and gas. Could be progress.

418 Take Vitamin C until you hit bowel tolerance. You WILL go, but there's no way to know how much you need to hit it before hand.

Some types of Magnesium will do the trick as well. So will fiber capsules.

If you're not in severe pain, don't have a fever, and haven't vomited, I doubt you've got peritonitis. Loss of appetite can be a sign, though.

At the beach parents would support little ones in the shallows to teach the basic arm movements and kicks. The local Y and Boys Club had pools and offered lessons and a place to swim in winter. Never lost a local. Starting so young, none of us kids were afraid. It was just as normal as running.

520 the new revelations in emails where FBI was pushing the "get this flucking Trump attack rolling" to me, seems clearly motivated by fear that they (that inner FBI circle that assigned themselves to the "special handling" for their criminal friend Hillary) ... they themselves were up to their spindly necks in the globalist crime wave ... joined at the hip with the DNC and FusionGPS.

DoJ is also implicated, and most of the little moles are still burrowed in and digging evidence out by the roots and wiping it with a cloth, and a hammer ... or just stealing it altogether. It's in the Hillary training manual on how to be a crook, and they all play that game.

Yes, good job. It's very hard to explain. I have often said that my father's generation were "John Adams Yankees." They shared a certain cultural background that included pragmatism, asceticism, Puritan work ethic, a love of country life, and an acerbic wit and love of irony. I'm not sure that this type even exists in New England anymore, with all of the immigration and population changes, and I can't make up my mind whether that's a good thing or a bad thing, or just something to be melancholy about.

Exactly. Family lore was that we were descended from John Adams, but there is an actual genealogy and we come down from a cousin or something. Still, one strand comes from those people back then.
