The US economy is caught in a trap. That trap is the Department of Defense: an increasingly sticky wicket that relies on an annual, trillion-dollar redistribution of government-collected wealth. In fact, it’s the biggest “big government” program on the planet, easily beating out China’s People’s Liberation Army in both size and cost. It is not only the “nation’s largest employer,” with 2.867 million people currently on the payroll, but it also provides government benefits to 2 million retirees and their family members. And it actively picks private sector winners by targeting billions of dollars to an elite group of profit-seeking contractors.

The administration and the plaintiffs have asked for a decision by noon Monday.

Back in 2015, Barack Obama launched the pilot program for the first time. Now, with Trump’s decision to release military-grade pistols to the public, which is set to cause a massive backlash in liberals.

Tensions between North Korea and the United States have been steadily rising for the past year, but with South Korea, Japan, China, and now most recently Russia coming into the mix, things may be far more complicated than Trump had initially anticipated.

As President Trump and Mad Dog Mattis have continued to solidify our positions in the Korean Peninsula, Russian military officials have grown angry at what they claim is an overreach of our power.

The US military has been running numerous joint drills with South Korea and Japan, in an attempt to prepare for any sort of nuclear attack which North Korea may launch. Apparently Russian diplomats think it’s unfair that we’re defending our own interests, and have just threatened an “apocalyptic situation” in the Korean Peninsula.

Therefore, when it just so happens that someone does remark a certain topic, the country is a little taken aback by it.

However, we need to realize just how serious this could be, especially because we have a general speaking up against former President Barack Obama, saying he was always good at giving terrorists a psychological boost.

U.S. Army Gen. John Nicholson spoke on the Obama issue Monday, explaining Obama’s main goal was to convince jihadists that the U.S. army was not willing to fight, thus adding fuel to the fire.

A federal court on Monday issued a clarification that the U.S. military must take transgender service members by January 1, after partially blocking President Trump’s transgender policy in an earlier ruling.

Last month, a judge on the U.S. District Court ruled that the president’s order to ban new transgender recruits from joining the military — as well as potentially expelling current members — cannot be enforced while the case is being reviewed in court.

Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly wrote that her injunction means that the military must continue to follow the policies established by former President Barack Obama‘s “June 30, 2016 Directive-type Memorandum,” which allowed transgender individuals to enlist beginning on January 1.
