Report: Marines Lead in Immorality and Binge Drinking in US Military

Report: One service leads all others in number of sex partners

A recently released report by the RAND Corporation shined a light on one service’s propensity for sexual promiscuity.

The Health Related Behaviors Survey, which collected data over parts of 2015 and 2016, found that Marines are significantly more likely to engage in risky sexual behavior than members of any other branch. Additional topics like binge drinking, tobacco use, physical well-being and mental health were also explored in the report.

Of the nearly 17,000 responses received from service members in the Army, Air Force, Marine Corps, Navy and Coast Guard, Marines led nearly every category of sexual risk behaviors and outcomes over the past year.

More than 24 percent of Marines reported having sex with more than one partner over the course of the data collection process, compared to 16.6 percent in the Army, 18.8 percent in the Air Force and 22.1 percent in the Navy.

Devil dogs were also tops when it came to having sex with a new partner without using a condom, with more than 40 percent of Marine respondents reporting having done so. …

Close to one-third of service members were found to have met binge-drinking criteria in the month before completing the survey. The 30 percent who reported engaging in such behavior was actually an improvement from previous reports.

Marines, however, engaged in binge drinking at a rate of 42.6 percent, a concerning contrast to the rest of the field.

Scientists say fetal tissue remains essential for vaccines and developing treatments

Talmudic ethics:

Anti-abortion activists set off the uproar by releasing undercover videos of Planned Parenthood officials that raised questions of whether the organization was profiting from the sale of fetal tissue. …

University laboratories that buy such cells strongly defend their research, saying tissue that would otherwise be thrown out has played a vital role in lifesaving medical advances and holds great potential for further breakthroughs.

Christopher Bollyn: Israel was NOT attacked; Israeli forces on Syrian Territory were Targeted • The Missile Attack on Israeli Forces in the Golan is Completely Legal • Israel's Attack on Syria is Neither Legal nor Moral

Christopher Bollyn writes on Facebook:

Israel was NOT attacked; Israeli forces on Syrian Territory were Targeted

The Missile Attack on Israeli Forces in the Golan is Completely Legal

Israel’s Attack on Syria is Neither Legal nor Moral

Israel was NOT attacked last night! The missiles allegedly fired from Syria landed on Israeli military targets in the occupied Golan Heights where Israel is an illegal occupying power on Syrian territory. Armed resistance to occupation is both legal and moral.

The White House has condemned Iran’s “provocative rocket attacks from Syria against Israeli citizens” and expressed strong support for “Israel’s right to act in self-defense.”

But Israel has no “right” to be occupying the Golan Heights. The Syrian government, on the other hand, and forces allied with it, have the legal and moral right to attack Israeli forces on occupied Syrian territory.

Paul Craig Roberts: Where is the Shame? — "How can it be that the American people are undisturbed by their government’s 17 years of wars based entirely on blatant lies? How can it be that the American people and the Evangelical churches are unmoved by the millions of innocent peoples in seven countries who have been murdered, maimed, orphaned, and displaced by the profit-driven US military/security complex and by the neoconservative ideology in service to Israel?"

… How can other governments accept the US, UK, and French governments that intentionally lied about a Russian chemical attack on the Skripals and about a Syrian chemical attack on Douma, risking a third world war, and then themselves attacking Syria on the basis of a transparent lie unsupported by any evidence? How exactly do you conduct diplomatic relations with war criminals?
You don’t. You put them on trial. Why aren’t Trump, May, and Macron on trial?
The reason is that the world has been conditioned, like Pavlov’s dogs, to expect and accept the West’s war crimes as ordinary….
Russian indecisiveness combined with the rest of the world’s toleration of ongoing US war crimes suggests that more provocations will be orchestrated, that more lawless attacks will take place, and that eventually a fatal conflict will be brewed. …

The US, Britain and France trampled international law to launch missiles against Syria, claiming to have “evidence” of the government’s use of chemical weapons. That evidence is based on terrorist lies. Continue reading “Caught in a lie, US & allies bomb Syria the night before international inspectors arrive”

Chuck Baldwin: Trump launches unconstitutional, illegal, unjust, immoral war on Syria — Calling Assad a "monster" and an "animal." But Bashar al-Assad is mild-mannered physician married to a British citizen. He is loved and adored by the vast majority of the Syrian people–including Syria's Christians. He often travels openly throughout Syria without fear of being harmed by his own countrymen. Assad has a higher popularity rating among his fellow countrymen than any other national leader on earth

Chuck Baldwin wrote on Facebook hours after Trump bombed Syria for a second time on April 4th, 2018:

IT DIDN’T TAKE 72 HOURS; TRUMP LAUNCHES WAR AGAINST SYRIA

At 4 am local time, U.S. U.K., and French jets fired an undetermined number of missiles on so-called “chemical” targets in Syria in supposed retaliation for Syria’s alleged gas attack against the Syrian people. But there is absolutely NO PROOF that the chemical attack came from the Syrian government. Everyone seems to have conveniently forgotten that the U.S. certified that Syria had given up its chemical weapons back in 2014.

Do you know which country has the largest stockpile of chemical weapons? The United States, that’s which one.

Plus, everyone knows that the Islamist terrorists fighting the Assad government are in possession of chemical weapons (no doubt supplied by the United States). And Donald Trump is basing his attack against Syria on the word of the Douma-based terrorists fighting Assad? You call THAT evidence?

Trump said he attacked Syria’s chemical weapons stockpiles, but THERE ARE NO CHEMICAL WEAPONS STOCKPILES in Syria. Therefore, the missiles hit key Syrian supply bases and Trump claimed they were chemical stockpiles.

Hmmm. If they had been chemical weapon stockpiles that were bombed, wouldn’t the poisonous gasses be showered all over creation, killing untold numbers of people? If that had happened, who, then, would be guilty of using chemical weapons against innocent civilians? Remember, these missile attacks included Syria’s capital city, Damascus–the country’s most densely populated metropolis.

Beyond that, the missile attacks came just before international inspectors were scheduled to arrive in Syria to investigate the chemical attack. The U.S. missile attack doubtless has now forever destroyed the evidence that the chemicals were used by anti-Assad terrorists, NOT the Syrian government. How convenient.

Defense Secretary Mattis is saying this is a “one time” attack, but Trump is strongly suggesting that more missiles are on the way. After all, most of the missiles were intercepted by Syrian missile defense systems and didn’t reach their intended targets.

Trump has called Assad a “monster” and an “animal.” But Bashar al-Assad is mild-mannered physician, a western-trained eye doctor to be specific. He is married to a British citizen. He is loved and adored by the vast majority of the Syrian people–including Syria’s Christians. He often travels openly throughout Syria without fear of being harmed by his own countrymen. In fact, Assad has a higher popularity rating among his fellow countrymen than any other national leader on earth. This is the man that has ordered several chemical attacks against his own people? BALDERDASH! POPPY-COCK!

This was a U.S. dark ops false flag if there ever was one. And after criticizing Barack Obama for falling for a false flag chemical attack in 2013 that was blamed on Assad, Trump is doing the exact same thing–except this time he is risking war with Russia.

(vid) Molyneux: A FINAL PLEA FOR PEACE — "This has to stop!"

At about minute-15, Stefan explains how many US soldiers wouldn’t shoot the ‘enemy’ during WWII, so their soul wasn’t seared, unlike those who did shoot in Vietnam and our recent wars.
After WWII, the “Full Metal Jacket,” dehumanizing, mind-control, boot camp model was implemented so future soldiers’ humanity would break, so they would shoot to kill without hesitation.
Western media hides the horrors from our eyes, so we don’t see our soldiers maiming and killing men, women and children through our wars.
But they do see exactly what we do to them.
Enraged at us, we then accept them into our country, and this is going to turn out terribly.
Stefan then gives a heartfelt plea to Donald Trump to stop this warmongering. Stefan ponders how a few people can decide whether we live or die, if they push the nuclear button.
“This has to stop!”

Every American should be ashamed for what we do to people in other countries.

US Violence Abroad Begets Violence at Home — Intolerant, uncivil, drug-addled, alcoholic society — CIA and Pentagon have killed 20-30 million since 1947!

U.S. VIOLENCE ABROAD BEGETS VIOLENCE AT HOME

by Jacob G. Hornberger
… Here is the critical question: If the Pentagon and the CIA are killing masses of people abroad, will that have an adverse effect on people here at home?The standard answer is no. …the mindset has been that as long as the death and destruction is “over there” ….The U.S. media has played its part in all this by declining to display photographs of dead bodies and body parts that are the result of U.S. shootings, bombings, or missile attacks. …
I maintain the opposite. I hold that the massive U.S. violence abroad is triggering violent behavior in people here at home, especially those operating at the margins, mentally speaking. See, for example, my article Charlottesville and America’s Death Machine.
…I maintain, based simply on common sense and human nature, that all the massive death and destruction that the Pentagon and the CIA wreak abroad inevitably seeps into the minds of the American people. The result is an increasingly intolerant, uncivil, drug-addled, alcoholic society and, even worse, one that triggers irrational violent behavior in people who are mentally operating at the margin.
…the number of people that the Pentagon and the CIA have killed, especially if we go back to 1947, when the U.S. government was converted into a national-security state to oppose its WWII partner and ally the Soviet Union in the Cold War. According to an article entitled “Deaths in Other Nations Since WWII Due to US Interventions” published in 2007 on a website called countercurrents.org, the U.S. government has actually killed some 20 million foreigners. That is definitely not a small number. …
Is it really possible that the U.S. government can kill millions of people without it having and adverse effect on the mental stability of the American people? Is it really possible for Americans to continue living normal lives, mentally speaking, while their government is out killing millions of people on a regular basis? I don’t think so. : The U.S. government’s mass violence abroad is the root cause of the horrible irrational violence that afflicts American society. And as long as the killing over there continues, so will the irrational violence here at home, along with more acts of incivility, intolerance, and other dysfunctional behavior.

The ‘Forgotten’ Fourth Verse of the National Anthem: “Conquer we must, WHEN OUR CAUSE IS JUST”

Real historian, James Perloff has demonstrated that most, if not all of our wars have been unnecessary, false flags, immoral and reverse-Christian, even including the Revolutionary War and the “good war,” WWII.

Then there are the USA’s covert wars: overthrows, regime changes and destructions of dozens of nations through the CIA.

Our causes have not been just, when we’ve conquered.

And most Americans don’t care, led by Fox News (the war channel), CNN, MSNBC, Rush Limbaugh, the *Savage* Nation, movie stars, comedians….

– –

…many will sing the familiar first stanza of Francis Scott Key’s 1814 lyrics, which we know as the National Anthem. But few are familiar with the fourth stanza, which is a part of the official lyrics, as adopted by President Herbert Hoover in 1931. The stirring lines read as follows:

O thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation.
Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the Heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
