    Yes there are lots of them. Did you have a question?


    Army


    Fort Irwin The National Training Center at Fort Irwin is the Army's premier brigade-level maneuver warfare training center, providing training for ground and aviation brigades in a joint scenario across the spectrum of conflict. The installation is an ideal pre-deployment training facility for troops deploying to Iraq and Afghanistan, containing multiple urban and wilderness operations sites.
    Monterey Presidio Part of the former Fort Ord, this installation is home to the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center, which provides foreign language education, training, evaluation, and sustainment for DoD personnel. This facility is regarded as one of the finest schools for foreign language instruction in the country.
    Sierra Army Depot Sierra Army Depot is an Expeditionary Logistics Center, providing world-wide logistics support including maintenance, assembly, containerization, and rapid shipment of critical supplies.

    Marine Corps

    Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms The Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center, Twentynine Palms conducts live-fire combined-arms training, urban operations, and Joint/Coalition level integration training that promotes operational forces readiness. Marines and Sailors train at several different ranges, including CAMOUT, a mock city the size of downtown San Diego.
    Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton operates a secure Class A airfield and maintains air station facilities, equipment, and properties in support of operational forces preparing for combat. The location of MCAS Camp Pendleton is critical to shipboard operations training off the coast. Without the air station, naval expeditionary ship to shore training operations would be gravely impacted.
    Marine Corps Air Station Miramar Home to the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, MCAS Miramar provides a central location between inland air-to-ground ranges and littoral air-to-air ranges for rotary and fixed wing aircraft. A premier Marine Corps Air Station, Miramar is the ideal location for F/A-18 Hornet, KC-130J Hercules, CH-53E Super Stallion, and MV-22 Osprey.
    Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton provides critical training for more than 40,000 Marines and Sailors preparing to deploy overseas. The varied terrain, close proximity to other training ranges, and 17 miles of undeveloped shoreline provide Marines the ability to incorporate combined arms training by using naval assets with fixed and rotary wing aircraft in direct support of ground operations.
    Marine Corps Logistics Base Barstow Barstow is essential to the Marine Corps' capacity to provide support to the operating forces with 33 million square feet of covered and open lot storage. One of two USMC installations responsible for the Reset workload, Barstow is a primary source of repair for equipment returning from overseas combat, and is critical to the Corps' future equipment sustainment.
    Marine Corps Mountain Warfare Training Center Bridgeport The Marine Corps Mountain Warfare Training Center conducts unit and individual training courses to prepare Marine Corps, Joint, and Allied forces for operations in mountainous high altitude, and cold weather environments in support of the Regional Combatant Commanders.
    Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego More than 17,000 recruits are transformed into Marines annually at Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego. During the 12-week course, recruits tackle physical challenges, learn martial arts skills, complete weapons qualification, undergo field training, and conquer the Crucible, a capstone event that requires recruits to work together as teams to complete the 54-hour event.

    I do wish you blokes could make up your minds.

    I thought Trump was supposed to be an existential threat to the republic, with flags inverted and all that.

    Now you scoff at the idea of the authoritarianism you say he represents.

    Is he an authoritarian, or not?

    So at what point does California’s response move from passive resistance (which is permitted) to “unlawful obstructions, combinations ... or rebellion against the authority of the United States?” I’m not sure, and I don’t think we’re there yet. But Sessions’ strong language suggests that he thinks we’re closer than we should be. Stay tuned.

    Well, there you go. A UT Law professor (& blogger) is pretty much guarun-dam*-teed to be a 'bagger supporter. Looky here, he's the man behind Instapundit. Remember this? And as always, as a li.. er, lawyer, he practices plausible deniability - acknowledging that "I’m not sure.." - meaning the article is the same as the OP.. just pot stirring. Gotta keep people riled up - which is what Instapundit is all about.

    I was a "Contractor" did some demolition work, and paved the parking lot. They had their own "inspector" a little martinet, he knew nothing, zero, about roads or asphalt. LOL

    My plan was to distract him away from the jobsite by asking for a tour. Suggesting that he as an "inspector" probably knew more about that place than anybody. He was so clueless it wasn't a necessary distraction but it worked, and I with a white hard hat, got the run of the place.

    Today, no one gets in there without a background check, we have to submit a list of employees and vehicles for approval, and the martinets are many and posted near every gate, checking for seat belts, turn signals, and back-up alarms on the trucks and tractors.

    I hope that Sessions does send troops to CA to enforce federal immigration laws. It will be the best boost imaginable for Democrats and other anti-Trump voters in the next election. Bring 'em on.

    Oh yeah - only when they agree with what the states are doing.

    Schlichter argues things will go very badly for Democrats if push comes to shove. Pretty compelling analysis.

    I recently acquired a tube of 2.5% hydrocortisone cream that is little short of miraculous. Highly recommended for minor irritants.

    We stopped bidding on projects there a couple of years ago as way too much trouble to be profitable. The usual bidders are guys that have the engineering contractors license, know the routine and can just hire subs. They don't even show up on the job. Just process the paperwork add a percentage and collect the money.
