Just as we called it when this PC project started, when they fail to meet the requirements... lower the standards.
All 8 women fail Ranger School: Some Rangers say standards should change
On Friday, the Army is expected to announce that all the women who attempted to graduate from Ranger School had officially failed to meet the standards, according to a military source.
By Anna Mulrine, Staff writer May 29, 2015
The Rangers are the best of the best, and being a Ranger means passing a physical test that pushes body and mind to the breaking point. If women can’t do it, the argument goes, then they shouldn’t be Rangers.
But there is another opinion quietly being voiced as well: that Ranger School is more akin to a rite of passage – an opportunity for men to “thump their chest,” as one Ranger puts it – than a realistic preparation for leading in war. That women can actually make Ranger units more effective. And that the standards that keep them out are outdated.
As I thought it would be... Three women (Officers, of course) get FOUR tries at completing the course. Are the guys that failed the course getting the same treatment with retry after retry? Willing to bet the answer is a big ass-ed politically correct NO.
Continuing Cuts, Female Ranger Students advance to Mountain Phase
13 July 2015
In other news, the three remaining female Ranger students have advanced on to Mountain Phase. Mountain phase is the toughest phase physically, and they are going into the heat of the summer.
Well, after getting every Politically Correct break/retry possible and/or necessary to make it through the course... The Army graduates its first women Rangers. I said the Army would use the old tried and true 'equality curve' and I believe thats what happened in this case.
Pair of Women to Graduate From Army Ranger School for First Time Ever
Aug. 17, 2015 10:43pm Oliver Darcy
Two women are set to graduate from Army Ranger school, the first ever to complete the vigorous 62-day course, the Army announced Monday night.
A graduation ceremony for the two women and 94 men will be held on August 21 on Victory Pond at Fort Benning, Georgia.
Well, Well, Well, looks like we were spot on... the 'equality curve' was in full effect from day one. Was It Fixed? Army General Told Subordinates: 'A Woman Will Graduate Ranger School,' Sources Say
By Susan Keating, 09/25/2015 AT 09:30 AM EDT
"It had a ripple effect" at Fort Benning, where Ranger School is based, says a source with knowledge of events at the sprawling Georgia Army post. "Even though this was supposed to be just an assessment, everyone knew. The results were planned in advance."
Something about the story of the first two women ever to graduate from the Army’s prestigious Ranger course seemed hokey. I guess I’m always suspicious of “firsts.” Our society is so fixated on them that it creates an incentive to fudge facts and lower standards.
Liberals will of course contest my assertion, though these are the same people who don’t really object to lowering standards in academia to get more minorities in the door, lowering them again to get them to graduate, then lowering them a third time to hire them as faculty members. Liberals don’t really oppose lowering the bar in order to create “firsts.” They just don’t like to call it “lowering the bar” because that tarnishes the accomplishment. As it should.

Pentagon Could Be ‘Shredding’ Docs About Female Rangers
Blake Neff, Reporter 7:22 PM 10/14/2015
The military may be “shredding” documents that could indicate whether or not women received special treatment while attempting to become the first female Army Rangers, a letter from an investigating Congressman suggests.
Rep. Steve Russell of Oklahoma, himself a veteran and Ranger School graduate, has been investigating claims that Kristen Griest and Shaye Haver, the first ever female graduates of Ranger School, received special treatment. In September, he sent a letter to Army Secretary John McHugh requesting Army records relating to the women’s test scores, medical history, evaluations, and other background details that may help indicate whether they benefited from a lower standard.
But new documents, first written about by Susan Keating of PEOPLE and now obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation, suggest the Pentagon may be playing a cat-and-mouse game with Russell, first stalling for time and then later telling Russell that the information he requested had been destroyed.
The Ranger School story and its potential impact on national security
October 17, 2015, By Ray Starmann
During the last two weeks, US Defense Watch has been reporting on Representative Steve Russell’s request on September 15th for the Ranger School records of the first two female graduates, Captain Kristen Griest and First Lieutenant Shaye Haver. It is not known whether or not Congressman Russell has asked for the records for Major Lisa Jaster, who graduated today from Ranger School.
Russell’s request to Secretary of the Army, John McHugh, was at first delayed on September 24th, when McHugh asked for an extension, noting “privacy concerns” and time to compile the records together.
Nearly two weeks passed without Russell being informed when the records would be delivered to his office. When the Army finally contacted Russell they told him that many of the students’ records had been shredded.
Cover-up and misdirection at the highest levels...
General: Army can't investigate anonymous claims against Ranger School
By Chuck Williams, Columbus Ledger-Enquirer (Tribune News Service)Published: October 18, 2015
Maj. Gen. Scott Miller’s voice held frustration late Friday afternoon during a quickly arranged media roundtable on the fourth floor of McGinnis-Wickam Hall, headquarters of the Army’s Maneuver Center of Excellence.
The commanding general of Fort Benning has been fighting allegations for months that female soldiers were given special treatment to pass Ranger School, the most physically and mentally demanding training offered by the Army.
The key players in the Ranger School records story must testify before Congress
October 22, 2015, Ray Starmann
The Army’s senior leaders have broken the trust of the American people. They have succumbed to an absurd political agenda emanating from the White House. They have broken their oaths by abandoning the Constitution and the nation they have sworn to defend. The only things they have defended are their own careers and retirement benefits.
US Defense Watch and other media outlets have been covering the Ranger School records story since late September.
Here’s a summary of the story until now:
Congressman Steve Russell (R, OK) contacted the Secretary of the Army on September 15, 2015, and requested the Ranger School records for the first two female graduates, Captain Kristen Griest and First Lieutenant Shaye Haver.
Russell, a Ranger School graduate, who served 21 years in the Army and earned a Bronze Star with Valor device, was elected to Congress in 2014. He led 1st Battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment during its deployment to Tikrit, Iraq.
The Secretary of the Army, John McHugh, stalled Russell for nine days and then asked for an extension to obtain documents readily available.
The Army waited another two weeks to tell Russell the documents had been shredded.
Pentagon: All US Military Positions to Open to Women, 'No Exceptions'
Newsmax, Thursday, 03 Dec 2015 12:30 PM
The U.S. military will open up all its positions — including front-line combat roles — to women, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter announced Thursday, in a sweeping move that ends centuries of tradition.
"I am announcing my decision . . . to proceed with opening all these remaining occupations and positions to women," Carter told reporters at the Pentagon. "There will be no exceptions."
How The Army Tried To Avoid Telling The Truth About Women In Ranger Training
James Hasson, August 29, 2019 9:19 PM ET
Editor’s note: What follows is the second of a two-part series of adapted excerpts from decorated veteran and conservative writer James Hasson’s new book Stand Down: How Social Justice Warriors Are Sabotaging America’s Military (Here at Barnes and Noble). The first part covers the intense training required for most Ranger candidates, and how that training was blunted internally by bureaucrats and military officials with an agenda. The second part covers the military’s response when news began to leak, and how they tried to cover up their malfeasance.
The Department of the Army’s reaction to the allegations is more important than the allegations themselves.
