Today marks a very exciting day as we launch the new and improved Pundit Press. We have joined forces with High Plains Pundit to design a new website to provide our readers with even more news and information.

Here is the link that will direct you to the new Pundit Press website: http://thepunditpress.com/

This new partnership will also include all 3 of Danny R. Butcher's (aka High Plains Pundit) internet radio shows, Nightly Review, The Danny R. Butcher Show, and Sunday Night Sports Talk.

A special thank you to all of the Pundit Press readers out there for your continued support. We are very excited about what the future holds for Pundit Press, and we hope that you continue with us on this journey.

New Medal for Drone Operators Outranks Bronze Star...

The Pentagon has announced the creation of a new medal, the Distinguished Warfare Medal, which will be awarded to men and women who have actively assisted in combat, but not on the ground in the traditional sense - such as drone operators and cyber warfare experts - to recognize their efforts in wartime.

However, this new medal will have higher military precedence then the Bronze Star... Meaning the virtual X-box like warrior in the drone operator's room can receive a medal of more valor then the infantryman, starving to death eight thousand miles away from home, fighting for his life against an enemy outpost...

Ok, I understand the United States military is attempting to move away from conventional warfare and towards automated techniques, such as drone warfare, precise missile strikes and a light boots-on-the-ground footprint, but are we really embracing a new warrior ethos where the bronze star is not outranked by a new medal for drone operators?

Seriously? Are you freaking kidding me...

What is our military coming to? Dear Lord, Almighty...
