A series of changes included in a draft 2016 budget proposal under consideration by the Defense Department could raise commissary grocery prices, reduce store hours and cut employees.

The cuts could be included in the President’s 2016 budget set to be released early next month. The proposal is then sent to Congress for changes and approval, likely sometime late this year.

The plans included in the commissary draft proposal are likely to change before being added to the President’s final document, sources said.

Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) officials were tasked by the Defense Department with coming up with a $322 million cut to their current $1.4 billion operating budget, according to the documents labeled “not for release.” The proposals were first reported by Army Times.

Mocking treasured liberal slogans is as easy as shooting (bicycle-riding) fish in a barrel.

They helpfully print them on T-shirts and bumper stickers, for one thing—although over the years, in this as in all material matters, quality has taken a hit. At least the notion of Pentagon bake sales exhibited a sense of absurdist, curlicued whimsy. Those rosary-battered ovaries, though? Thud.

And yet, despite our mockery and their lack of creativity, the left keeps winning.

“ITIN holders are not required to prove legal residency, and ITIN applications are running at the rate of 1 million a year.”

The IRS claims that since they are not an immigration agency they don’t check legality of ITIN recipients.



Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer has heard the FBI’s warning that the Islamic State may be targeting military members by tracking their social media posts. That does not scare him, though. In fact, he’d love to see Islamic State fighters show up at his door.

ST. LOUIS • St. Louis Bosnians outraged about a deadly hammer attack in the city’s Bevo Mill neighborhood spilled into the streets Sunday night to voice frustrations over violence touching their community.

“We’re just angry because we’re trying to protect our community,” said Mirza Nukic, 29, of St. Louis. “We’re just trying to be peaceful.”

Nukic was among at least 50 people, mostly, if not all Bosnians, who briefly blocked Gravois Avenue at Itaska Street on Sunday night to protest the killing. The intersection was near where Zemir Begic, a Bosnian man who moved to St. Louis this year, was attacked by at least three teens with hammers early Sunday.
