Army Expands Mental Health Waivers For New Recruits: Report

Stretched to the limit with multiple tours and senior NCO attrition, the Army steps off a cliff

The U.S. Army will now allow people with a history of certain mental health issues to seek waivers to join the service, according to a report. The Army enacted a new policy in August that expanded waivers to potential recruits with a history of drug and alcohol abuse, “self-mutilation,” depression, and bipolar disorder, according to USA Today.


Bush instituted "Moral Waivers" to fill ranks
Lt. Col. Randy Taylor, a spokesman for the Army, told USA Today the Army decided to expand the waivers because of increased access to medical information for potential recruits.

“The decision was primarily due to the increased availability of medical records and other data which is more readily available,” Taylor said in a statement to USA Today. “These records allow Army officials to better document applicant medical histories.”


A ban on waivers was issued by the Army in 2009 after suicides among troops spiked.

The Army faces a goal of recruiting 80,000 new soldiers by September 2018. Last year, the Army had a goal of 69,000 new recruits, which it met by accepting people who didn’t perform well on aptitude tests and by offering hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses. The Army also increased the number of waivers it granted for marijuana use, according to USA Today.




In a September memo to commanders, the Army detailed how a potential recruit with a history of some mental health issues such as self-mutilation can obtain a waiver.

The applicant has to provide “appropriate documentation," including a detailed statement from the applicant, medical records, evidence from an employer if an injury was related to their job, photos from the recruiter, and a psychiatric evaluation.




One memo states the “burden of proof is on the applicant to provide a clear and meritorious case for why a waiver should be considered.”

It’s unknown how many waivers have been issued since the unannounced policy change in August.

‘Get Lost Please": Moment Russian Tycoon Brushes Off CNN Fake News 'Reporter'

CNN fake news propagandist ignored - a growing trend worldwide as the propaganda machine circles the drain

RT
11/13/2017

Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska’s encounter with a CNN hack who kept asking him about alleged ties with Paul Manafort, ended with the tycoon giving him a steely look and telling him to “get lost.”


CNN fake news now a joke in Russia
CNN’s Matthew Chance spotted Deripaska during the APEC summit in Vietnam and immediately started following him. Chance repeatedly asked questions about Deripaska’s alleged connections to former Donald Trump aide Paul Manafort, according to the CNN video released on Friday. 

After unsuccessful attempts to ignore Chance’s questions, Deripaska eventually became annoyed with the reporter and said: “Get lost, please, thank you.”


Deripaska’s name hit US headlines after an AP report in March claimed he had dealings with Paul Manafort in order to “benefit the Putin government.” 

The Russian tycoon has repeatedly said that he is prepared to take part in “any hearing” in the US Congress on the subject.




In October, Manafort was indicted on a number of counts regarding Ukraine lobbying in the US and related crimes between 2006 and 2016. 

Despite some speculation, there is no Russia connection in the lobbyist’s indictment.

CNN Makes Sick Move To “Normalize” Pedophilia

Not surprising as CNN fake news is staffed with pedophiles, deviants  

THE WASHINGTON FEED
05/30/2017

CNN is known for being one of the most sensitive left-wing cable channels on TV. We always knew the people that worked there were sick, but normalizing pedophile behavior? Insane.


CNN fake news promotes pedophilia, child molestation 
It all started when CNN decided that they should bring on a pedophile, Jacob Schwartz, on a panel to discuss President Trump. First of all, why are they allowing these types of people on their news board panel? It OBVIOUSLY DOESN’T matter to the failing, biased news company. (via Daily Mail)

The sad truth is that CNN will bring anyone on their shows if they think there’s a chance the guest will support their agenda. 


The Left doesn’t care WHAT someone does, so long as they hate Trump, and know some cliche talking points. In order to understand how twisted this pedophile is, you have to hear about his crimes.

He is currently facing two felony charges for possessing child pornography. Disturbingly enough, the police also discovered that he had a computer with nearly 3,000 pictures, and 89 videos featuring child pornography. The EVIDENCE is sickening! Why is he walking around today?

There’s no denying that Schwartz was involved with this DISGUSTING pornographic material. He should be afraid to show his face at this point.




Instead, he was invited to speak on the Clinton News Network with open arms. On the show, Jacob and his buddies took turns bashing Trump. They think we should take our political cues from someone who thinks sex with children is okay. WRONG.

It is interesting to note that Jacob was allowed to speak freely despite his legal problems. When a conservative is allowed airtime, their mics are cut. We should NOT be living in this political environment.

You used to be able to have open debates between HONEST people about the country’s problems. Now, news networks bring on guests with no specialty, aside from being a pedophile, and have them make political commentary?




The only way we’re going to keep people like this out of our political world is if we call them out for what they are. Jacob is one of many criminals to spread their biased opinions about President Trump. It seems like the media works to get everyone into a frenzy, then lets the sheep liberals do their bidding.

The Left get people all “amped up” to protest, give them catchy phrases (“NOT MY PRESIDENT”), and let them go crazy. Their anger is not based on fact, but senseless rambling. We need to put a stop to this madness, and bring REAL discussions back to our states, neighborhoods, and our country.




The liberal media releases “fake news” reports in an attempt to trick people into believing information that suits their agenda. 

Up until this point, NO ONE has been able to confirm a connection between Trump and Russia, yet CNN runs a hundred stories a week.
