(NEWYORKTIMES)-

Senate votes to require women to register for the draft-

“Americans are going to learn the hard way that this has nothing to do with women’s rights, equality, equal opportunity or whatever kind of feel good label you want to brainwash yourself with. Most are unable to see the forest through the trees so i’ll spell it out. What this is about is the United States needing all the bodies we can get, like Vietnam, when world war 3 kicks off. Men and women will be called forward to fight on behalf of central banks and the New World Order in their game of global chess most people are unable to wrap their mind around. Like our sons were drafted, our daughters will now be drafted into humanity’s worst interaction with each other known as war. The clueless American people are jumping and cheering, rah rah rah, brainwashed by the belief that we took a step forward in progression in womens rights when in reality, we unconsciously signed them up for the death machine. There was a big debate about whether or not women can or will be able to handle the jobs that men have in the military, apparently the senate feels they are absolutely ready.”-BlackBox Politics(TM)

 

The United States Senate voted to pass a defense bill today that would require young women to sign up for a potential military draft for the first time in U.S. history. The vote was 85-13 in favor of the National Defense Authorization Act, a $600 billion defense spending bill that had a host of other controversial provisions in it, including prohibiting the closure of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and denying the Pentagon’s attempt to close military bases.

Republicans were divided about whether the U.S. should require women to register for the draft when they turn 18. Sen. Ted Cruz told Politico it was a “radical change that is attempting to be foisted on the American people,” while Sen. John McCain said “a large bipartisan majority on the Armed Services Committee agreed that there is simply no further justification to limit Selective Service registration to men.”

The Senate and the House will now meet to compare and resolve differences between the two versions of the defense spending bill. The House version does not have the female draft requirement in it.
