Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz said Thursday that the Department of Homeland Security is using roughly 1,000 rounds of ammunition more per person than the U.S. Army, as he and other lawmakers sharply questioned DHS officials on their “massive” bullet buys.
“It is entirely … inexplicable why the Department of Homeland Security needs so much ammunition,” Chaffetz, R-Utah, said at a hearing.
The hearing itself was unusual, as questions about the department’s ammunition [...]

Zhang Zhaozhong, rear admiral at China’s National Defense University
Zhang pointed out that China has a stronger fighting capability than Japan in a war for the Diaoyu Islands, because China’s coastal areas are close to the islands and the radar and missiles there can cover all the islands.

Obama appeals NDAA indefinite detention ban
A federal judge blocked the government from enforcing a statute that allows the indefinite detention without trial of terrorism suspects.

Only one day after a judge granted a [...]

Investing in dividend-growth stocks is a pretty robust process for long-term wealth-building. While individual stock selection does require a degree of economic and business understanding, the majority of it rests on common sense and psychological fortitude to keep adding capital and to appreciate down markets for what they are rather than to dread them.
Because it is a suitable investment strategy for individual investors, there also tend to be [...]
