The party say barriers and bureaucracy meant many of the 750,000 people who signed up in just four days weren’t properly utilised. Helpers would help deliver the roll-out of any vaccine and the delivery of test kits to homes in the event of future Covid variants and waning immunity. Mr Streeting said: “The best of Britain is getting us through this pandemic. "A Jabs Army can ready the country for future...
    Army Lieutenant Col. Andrew Rhodes, the commander of the 1st Battalion, 8th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Regimental Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division at Fort Carson, is under preliminary inquiry after allegedly telling troops that “white people are the problem,” according to an Army spokesperson. “The command is aware of an event involving one of our battalion commanders, we are conducting a preliminary inquiry to gather more information,” a spokesperson told Breitbart News in an email on Wednesday, adding “It would be inappropriate to provide any further details in order to protect the integrity of the inquiry.” According to an eyewitness source, after soldiers in the battalion received a quarterly Equal Opportunity (EO) brief by an EO representative, Rhodes made additional remarks. Rhodes allegedly told soldiers that EO and SHARP (Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention) were very important to him, that he would take every accusation very seriously, and that he believed there was only a .01% false accusation rate. He then allegedly said “white people are the problem” and that white people correcting white people is the way to fix the culture...

    An Army chaplain is under investigation after he saying transgender soldiers are 'mentally unfit' and 'unqualified to serve'. Maj. Andrew Calvert made the comments beneath an article published on Facebook Monday detailing President Biden's new executive order overturning a ban on transgender people in the military.  Calvert, who is a member of the 3rd Security Force Assistance Brigade at Fort Hood in Texas, wrote: 'How is rejecting reality (biology) not evidence that a person is mentally unfit (ill), and thus making that person unqualified to serve?' He continued: 'There is little difference in this than over those who believe and argue for a 'flat earth,' despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. The motivation is different, but the argument is the same.' An Army veteran took a screenshot of Calvert's comments and shared them to Twitter, writing: 'He cannot be trusted to support soldiers for another minute'.  Army chaplain Maj.

    SOLDIERS in the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers could be named Artisans under plans to axe male ranks. Top Brass fear the role of Craftsman — given to REME privates — puts women off joining the equipment maintenance corps. 2Top Brass hope a new naming structure will attract more females into rolesCredit: Alamy They are consulting on “gender-free nomenclature” in the 8,000-strong REME, which formed in 1942. Corps Colonel Andrew Rogers’ suggested alternatives for Craftsman were Private, Technician, Engineering Technician, and Artisan and Technician. He said Craftsman had been “iconic” since REME’s formation. He added: “We now have a chance to consider a modern and inclusive alternative.” He urged soldiers to make suggestions. 2Army chiefs are consulting on 'gender-free nomenclature' in the 8,000-strong REME, which formed in 1942 Most read in UK NewsFLOUT AND ABOUTCovidiot visiting brothel among 700 fined for breaking lockdown in KentFATAL TOLLUK Covid deaths up 1,401 and 40,261 new cases as deadly new strain takes holdHERE WE SNOWHeavy snow up to 10cm deep to hit UK this weekend with for London and southSMUGGLERS JAILED4 people-smugglers jailed...
    Ammon Bundy, center, has used protests against COVID-19 health measures to organize a 'People's Network' that so far has specialized in intimidating public officials. There’s been a buffoonish quality to Ammon Bundy’s brand of far-right “constitutionalist” politics over the past six months, primarily organized in a typically paranoid response to COVID-19-related public-health measures: Protesting at the home of a police officer who had arrested an anti-vaccination fanatic for violating the closure of a playground. Trying to bully his way inside a health-board meeting. Getting arrested twice in two days for ignoring his ban from the Idaho Statehouse. Going maskless at a Caldwell High School football game that forced the game to be called off, for which he was not only ejected but banned from future games by the local school district. The endless antics, however, have always obfuscated a darker, much more dangerous agenda. A disturbing new in-depth report by Devin Burghart at the Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights reveals that all the time that Bundy has been gathering media time and headlines, he’s been building a...
    An Antifa member under investigation connected to the death of a man shot at a Portland protest claimed he served in the Army – but the Pentagon says otherwise, DailyMail.com can disclose. Michael Reinoehl is being reportedly being investigated by Portland police over the killing of Aaron ‘Jay’ Danielson, a member of the right wing group Patriot Prayer who was shot to death at a protest on Saturday. Reinoehl had previously claimed on social media and in an interview with Bloomberg that he ‘was in the army’. ‘I was in the army and I hated it. I did not feel like fighting for them would ever be a good cause. Today’s protesters and antifa are my brothers in arms,’ Reinoehl wrote in a post about violent protests. ‘Every Revolution needs people that are willing and ready to fight. I am 100% ANTIFA all the way! I am willing to fight for my brothers and sisters!’ But a US Army spokesperson told DailyMail.com they searched their service records for a 48-year-old Michael Forest Reinoehl and were ‘unable to locate this individual...
    The iconic bearskin hats worn by the Queen's guards for more than 200 years are facing a threat from activists who want to ban fur sales.   Discussions have been held between animal welfare minister Zac Goldsmith and Humane Society International UK (HSI) as the Government aims to 'raise standards', two decades after fur farming was made illegal.  New plans could see the elimination of bearskins worn by the British Foot Guards - made with fur from the Canadian black bear - along with the House of Lords ermine, The Express reports.  Seven Army regiments, including the Coldstream Guards and Welsh Guards, are authorised to wear the 18-inch black headwear following the defeat of French Emperor Napoleon in 1815.   The British Army is believed to buy between 50 and 100 of the hats each year, costing roughly £650 each. At least 81 MPs and 750,000 Britons support a ban on the sale of fur, HSI claims.  The iconic bearskin hats worn by the Queen's guards for more than 200 years are facing a threat from activists who want to ban fur sales...
    New York (CNN)The United States military needs to attract Gen Z, the oldest of whom are now in their late teens and early 20s, so members of the Army and Navy have been meeting their target audience where they live: The video game livestreaming platform Twitch. There, troops broadcast themselves to thousands of followers as they play games like "Call of Duty: Warzone" and tout the benefits of service, such as making friends and, well, playing video games.But their presence hasn't always been well received by gamers. And last month, the Army and Navy's decisions to ban hundreds of Twitch users from their channels sparked an outcry from rights groups who say the move violates users' First Amendment rights. The scrutiny prompted the Army and Navy to suspend streaming last month. The Navy resumed within a week of pausing, while the Army returned on Friday.What the military is doing on TwitchRead MoreTo reach Gen Z during a pandemic, the old recruitment tactics aren't quite cutting it, military personnel said.

    President Trump voiced support for an investigation into the murder of Fort Hood soldier Vanessa Guillén after meeting with her family Thursday about legislation that would would allow service members to report sexual harassment accusations to a third party. The #IamVanessaGuillen bill is named in honor of Guillén after she was allegedly killed by a fellow Army soldier. Mr. Trump met with Guillén's family in the White House and told her mother that her death won't be "swept under the rug," according to the White House pool report.  "We are going to look into it very powerfully," Mr. Trump said. "Maybe something can come out of it that will help Vanessa and others."

    Members of the military, uniformed and civilian, are strictly prohibited from engaging in overt political activities. Those rules exist to keep them focused on their mission — defending the nation. But apparently, someone in the US Army’s Equity and Inclusion Agency has forgotten the rules. With a course titled “Operation Inclusion,” the agency is promoting the line that if you support enforcing immigration law, or say things like “all lives matter,” then you’re a white supremacist. GOP Rep. Mo Brooks blew the lid when he learned the agency had organized two seminars to re-educate all of the uniformed and civilian personnel at Redstone Arsenal, Ala. Brooks demanded an immediate investigation into “Army personnel illegally using federal government resources to distribute racist and partisan political propaganda in direct violation” of federal law and military regulations. Yet the two seminars at Redstone are just the first offerings of the program. Eventually, the woke agency plans to bring them to “all Army four-star commands.” What, exactly, is Operation Inclusion bringing to the bases? Well, the agency e-mail inviting all Redstone Arsenal personnel to...

    U.S. military police could be sent to George Floyd protests in Minneapolis under a law not used since the Rodney King riots, the Associated Press reported. The Pentagon ordered the Army to ready personnel from North Carolina and New York for deployment in Minnesota amid unrest over the police killing of Floyd while he was in custody, according to the wire service. Three unnamed sources told AP that the soldiers from Fort Bragg and Fort Drum were expected to be ready for deployment within four hours of receiving an order to deal with the ongoing protests in Minneapolis. President Donald Trump asked Defense Secretary Mark Esper to make the option available in a Thursday night phone call. A senior Pentagon official on the call told AP that the military police units would be sent to Minneapolis under the Insurrection Act of 1807. Under the terms of the law, the president has the power to deploy American troops in any state to suppress "any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy."
