If you didn't think the whole "controversy" surrounding Tucker Carlson's commentary earlier this week on how the Department of Defense is busy politicizing and feminizing the U.S. military as China makes their military more masculine could get any more absurd, you were wrong.
On Monday, President Biden announced the nominations of Air Force Gen. Jacqueline Van Ovost and Army Lt. Gen. Laura Richardson to, respectively, lead the U.S. Transportation Command and the U.S. Southern Command.

It's amazing how much mainstream media political coverage of the Wuhan caronavirus pandemic resembles Russia-collusion reporting.

The Pentagon announced the U.S. launched missiles at an Iranian-backed militia in Iraq officials believe attacked and killed American troops just north of Baghdad.

Secretary of Defense Mark Esper fired Navy Secretary Richard Spencer due to the latter's attempts to strike a deal with the White House over Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher, the man who posed next to a dead body of an ISIS terrorist.

The House Committee on Armed Services revealed an outline of its defense budget proposal on Monday. The contents of the plan set up a possible stalemate with the Senate and President Donald Trump.
The proposal trims $17 billion from the $750 billion Trump requested for defense. The Senate defense bill sits right at $750 billion.
I have a feeling the portion that does not allow any Pentagon funding towards a border wall will cause the most problems with Trump.
