Immigration Impacting Infantry

________________________

After receiving heavy pushback by the Trump Administration, the US Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest recruitment programme (MAVNI) is now deauthorised, so, as a result, the Pentagon began discharging dozens of associated recruits. Recruits promised an “expedited” path to citizenship now are out of the US Army with nothing but their fatigues to show for their service. MAVNI, which began under former President George W Bush in 2002, was as a pathway for US naturalisation following  “honourable service” since 2009. Despite the requirement being achievable just days following entry into boot camp, recent recruits expecting citizenship now face a cycle of interviews, background checks, and screening processes in addition to discharge papers. With immigration a hot-button issue for the Trump Administration following the family separation and child detention camps scandal under the US President’s “zero tolerance” policy, Washington may have another associated problem on its hands as immigrant recruits begin seeking legal counsel.

Happy Indifference Day

_________________________

Just in time for the US Independence Day on 4 July, Gallup’s Monday release suggests Americans may be putting their pride to the side during the national holiday. In the research company’s recent 18-year history of surveying Americans on their pride, 2018 resulted in the lowest numbers for the “extreme” category, which is a dramatic drop from the peak of 70 percent in 2003. The numbers also reveal that the idea of American pride is dropping at the fastest rate within the Democratic and liberal communities. Does this mean fewer sparklers at the annual BBQ or something much worse for the future of the USA?

1 June 2018. Today is World Children’s Day… A Wry View From Vitaly Podvitsky

________________________

The International Day for Protection of Children is observed in many countries as Children’s Day on 1 June since 1950. It was established by the Women’s International Democratic Federation at its congress in Moscow on 4 November 1949. In other words, it’s a positive Soviet legacy.

Blame It on the Ambien

_________________________

Actress, comedian, and former US presidential candidate Roseanne Barr claims the prescription sedative Ambien was the true culprit behind her describing Valerie Jarrett, a former White House senior adviser, as a child of the “Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes”. While some were debating whether Barr’s tweet was likening Jarrett to apes or speaking from a place of Islamophobia, the former ABC star returned from her hours-long Twitter hiatus to proclaim in a now-deleted tweet that her 0200 “Ambien tweeting” was “indefensible”. Not to be used as a scapegoat, Ambien maker Sanofi’s US branch shot back at Barr without even mentioning her name:

People of all races, religions, and nationalities, work at Sanofi every day to improve the lives of people around the world. While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a side effect of any Sanofi medication.

Anxiety, depression, nervousness, strange behaviour, thoughts of self-harm, memory loss, hallucinations, and severe confusion are reported side effects… especially in women. Naturally, US President Donald Trump, who received vocal support from Barr during the 2016 presidential election, also joined in on the Roseanne cancellation “party” by calling out Bob Iger, CEO of Disney, which owns ABC:

Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that “ABC doesn’t tolerate comments like those” made by Roseanne Barr. Gee, he never called President Donald J Trump to apologise for the HORRIBLE statements made and said about me on ABC. Maybe, I just didn’t get the call?

While the ultimate fate of the leading lady’s show is unknown for the cast and crew, it seems certain that the actress is won’t be backing away from the Twitter app anytime soon.

Editor:

I think that ABC came down especially hard on Roseanne as she attracts the “wrong” kind of people… proles. Do bear in mind that Upper Middles look down their long noses at us and treat us with either condescension or contempt. I spit on them and everything that they stand for and hold dear.
