Jihadis in the US Military? What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

Defense Department investigators have discovered “potential security risks” in a Pentagon program that has enrolled more than 10,000 foreign-born individuals into the U.S. armed forces since 2009, Fox News has learned exclusively, with sources on Capitol Hill and at the Pentagon expressing alarm over “foreign infiltration” and enrollees now unaccounted for.
After more than a year of investigation, the Pentagon’s inspector general recently issued a report – its contents still classified but its existence disclosed here for the first time – identifying serious problems with Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest (MAVNI), a DOD program that provides immigrants and non-immigrant aliens with an expedited path to citizenship in exchange for military service. 
Defense Department officials said the program is still active but acknowledged that new applications have been suspended.
Created in the final weeks of the Bush-Cheney administration and launched under then-President Barack Obama, MAVNI was designed to recruit individuals with foreign-language and other skills the Pentagon deems useful and in short supply.

Nice. Bush/Cheney's DoD comes up with a good idea, and the Halfrican and his America Last jihad first propensities bastardize the whole thing, and use it to slip in an undisclosed number of not-so-smart-bombs, for use in future incidents of "workplace violence".

I don't give a damn whether you love Trump or think he's Satan's hype man, the suspension of this idiocy, and the threat to national security perpetrated by the last bunch of saboteurs in the White House and DoD, now under investigation, have been firmly brought to a halt by adult supervision.

At least John Mccrazy's got an excuse for why he was out to lunch on this: he has a brain tumor.

Hey, we've got invading Pakistani IT foreigners working in the halls of CON-gress. Why not MORE foreigners invading our establishment, this one the Armed Forces. Hell, we already have females, trannies and foreign born Vietnamese, Somalis and other third world nationalities enisting and in our ROTC commissioned officer program. Why not include these invading moslems ?

It is called GLOBALISM. The bulk of Amerikans accept both that and unending war along with social justice. This former great nation ist kaput !

I'm more optimistic, at least in the short-term.
"A republic, if you can keep it" wasn't Ben just kidding folks.

While I'm not quite as optimistic as Aesop, I'm increasingly of the mind that "ordinary Americans" are getting well and truly fed up with political correctness, social justice, and having to pretend that there are NOT profound differences between cultures, religions, and races for that matter (though the race issue is heavily confounded by culture). We'd been trained and browbeaten into NOT noticing, and definitely NOT talking about, such things, but the last eight years of Obamination have truly cured many of their "racism" -- as in the word no longer has meaning, because EVERYTHING is "racist". If you're automatically going to be punished anyway, you might as well speak your mind and say the truth. Do it in a calm, rational way (no "evil lizard joos living in the hollow earth control the CIA via telepathy from Antarctica" nutjobbery) and you'll be surprised how many people, from all walks of life, turn out to be sensible and sick of the bullshit. In the last week of travel (and thus meeting new people, such as Uber drivers, hotel clerks, waitresses, stewardesses, and the person next to you on the plane, etc) it's been about 3:1 sane/normal person: batshit progressive -- and I was in SoCal and SE Michigan, mostly. Even those with some prog tendencies are now admitting that public culture (media, government, entertainment) is well and truly fucked up, and appalling. There are more of US than THEM, by a long shot.

Speak your mind when appropriate, state your positions. Be willing and able to defend them in a calm manner. Avoid hyperbole and drama. Don't write off potential allies because they are not ideologically perfect. Joe is pro-2A and pro limited government, but you despise and alienate him because he is also pro gay marriage? NOT helping the cause. (Personally I think the government should ONLY recognize civil unions for ANYONE, gay or straight. Wanna get married, do THAT in the church of your choosing. CUs are for legal (property, inheritance, proxy medical decision making, etc) purposes; marriages? That's between you, your spouse, and God. But I digress.)

As to immigrants in the service, it actually makes sense, so long as you don't prioritize low-IQ adherents of the supposed Religion of Peace [and thank you again for THAT damn fool terminology, GWB you ass] over other applicants. Bear in mind that some immigrants are here not so much for the benefits as to get the fuck away from the totalitarian shitholes their own countries have become. Post WW2 Chinese (VERY different from the Cantonese speakers who came in the 1800's for railroad purposes), original-wave Cubans, etc are probably stronger supporters of the US than many a white American, especially if you find yourself surrounded by academic types.

There is that thing of "roughly 10% refugees are infiltrators" thing though. Hell, even non refugees. One of the few mainland Chinese I actually became friends with (in medical school) tells me that by his estimate about 10% of the grad/medical students from the PRC are also reporting to the Chicoms. Not necessarily stealing secrets or tech, mainly keeping an eye on the other Chinese from the PRC, a sort of low-level amateur zampolits, if you will. He hates the system there, and for the zampolits reason does his level best to avoid others from the PRC.

I'll report that supposition to my contacts in Langley immediately.

I'm pretty sure the hollow-earth dwelling secret lizard joos who really rule the Earth have already informed Langley and issued the appropriate orders :-)

BTW, that graphic was wrong:. Mattis already knows all of the 182 ways to kill him; he's just prioritizing the 10 easiest among those.

Glad- no, ECSTATIC - that there is now adult supervision.
