This should be the wake-up call the woke military needs.

Judging by the headlines of the Joe Biden presidency, the U.S. military has been consumed with strategies for battling the white supremacy boogeyman, pushing coronavirus vaccinations, and making the world safe for pregnant Air Force pilots.

They’re all liberal causes that meet the current political moment, but for one retired general, they’re an invitation to war — and the rest of the country should be listening.

HOW WOKE U.S. MILITARY LEADERS MAKE U.S. ENEMIES MORE LIKELY TO START A WARHTTPS://T.CO/7J9A7HG5MZ

— THE FEDERALIST (@FDRLST) JULY 29, 2021

In a commentary piece published Thursday by The Federalist, retired Marine Corps Lt. Gen. Greg Newbold laid out a convincing case for how the military’s current obsession with liberal priorities is actually placing the country in danger.

While no serious observer can dispute the technological advantages enjoyed by the world’s most powerful country, Newbold pointed out that technology doesn’t win wars. Soldiers do — and their counterparts in other branches.

To be clear, nothing Newbold wrote could be taken as a criticism of the more than 1 million men and women who actually make up the armed forces — and nothing here is intended to do so. For decades, as history shows, dictators the world over have learned to their sorrow about the fighting power of the United States.

But too many brave Americans have died in the process. And, Newbold noted, the primary function of a military is not so much winning a war, but convincing potential foes that, if they’re foolish enough to start one, they’re going to lose badly.

That’s not the image of strength the armed forces are projecting under the Biden administration, when military bases have hosted host drag shows, or even drag storytimes for kids. It’s not even the image the military is pretending to recruit for (whatever the merits of lesbian weddings, they don’t instill fear in the nation’s foes).

“When enemies read of male soldiers wearing pregnancy suits and high heels, required ‘sensitivity’ training, ‘Emma and her two moms’ recruiting videos, ‘safe spaces’ from the pressures of introductory training, the dilution of our ground combat forces, and transgender special treatment, they judge these actions not by our standards, but by their own,” Newbold wrote.

“These policies may play well in the salons on the U.S coasts, but they most decidedly do not impress the audiences in China, North Korea, Russia, or Iran. This was not the case even a dozen years ago, and the situation is worsening.”

Democrats and their mainstream media allies spent four years viciously attacking President Donald Trump, but his willingness to engage and defeat the country’s enemies was unquestionable.

The “caliphate” of the Islamic State group was all but destroyed, after flourishing like a malignant tumor during the Obama presidency. The murderous mullahs of Iran were faced with the relentless pressure of sanctions that hobbled the Islamic Republic’s economy.

And while there was, blessedly, no military conflict with China under Trump, the communist dictatorship knew well that the 45th president was a formidable opponent in trade wars.

But during the Biden presidency, “strength” seems to be gauged by how aggressively top military leaders are promoting critical race theory.

It’s important to note that Newbold’s criticisms cross party lines. Back in 2006, he was making headlines in The New York Times and other mainstream media outlets for a TIME Magazine piece he wrote castigating then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

His here-and-now criticisms of the Biden presidency are dead-on:

“Here’s a test case: Will China be more or less emboldened to seize Taiwan if they misjudge the strength and grit of our military? Here’s a further test case: Will Russian President Vladimir Putin conclude that our forces are not as tough as Russian soldiers, and will that assessment further allow him to expand on his seizure of the Crimea in 2014?

“Don’t forget our allies and those nations sitting on the fence. If they perceive U.S. weakness, are they more or less likely to align with our foreign policy objectives?

“Former Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis had it right. There should be only one measurable standard for our defense policies and priorities: Does the action make us more or less lethal?”

That doesn’t appear to be the priority of the Biden military.

Midterm elections that could end the current gossamer-thin Democratic majorities in both the House and Senate are only 15 months away. Every American who cares about the country’s future should be determined to vote, and get others to vote, to make sure Republicans win both houses of Congress.

But the presidential election, which can’t help but act as a referendum on Joe Biden, or whatever Democrat is running in his place, is three years off.

Until then, a Democrat will remain as commander in chief of the military, with all the wokeness — and weakness — that the word “Democrat” entails in the second decade of the 21st century.

And that makes the danger of war more real than what any liberal cause of the moment will be.

Kamala Harris SLAMS Biden In New Book.. Implies His Administration Is Racist

Published

on

In New York Times Reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns’ new book  “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future” the authors paint a negative picture of President Biden’s relationship with his Vice President, Kamala Harris.

The book, which is set to release soon, alleges that Harris was frustrated with Biden when he appointed her ‘Immigration Czar’, saying that she desired a more ‘softball’ assignment such as maintaining diplomatic relations with Nordic countries.

The book also claims that Biden’s ‘white inner circle’ looked down on Harris, implying that Biden and his top officials are racist.

Martin and Burns also claim that the now famous picture of Harris in black Converse sneakers that was featured on the cover of ‘Vogue’ was seen as ‘belittling’ by her office.

The Daily Mail Reports–

“Kamala Harris was not happy with Joe Biden appointing her to address the southern border crisis, wanting a more softball foreign policy assignment, and thinks the president’s ‘white inner circle’ looks down on her, according to claims made in a new book.

During an April meeting with Congressional Black Caucus leaders, Biden praised Harris and said she would do ‘a hell of a job’ handling immigration.

‘The vice president corrected him at once,’ New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns wrote in their new upcoming book This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future.

‘Excuse me,’ she said, ‘it’s the Northern Triangle — not immigration.”

The book also explains that the first minority and female vice president felt belittled by Biden’s white staff.

‘Some of Harris’s advisers believed the president’s almost entirely white inner circle did not show the vice president the respect she deserved,’ they wrote.

‘Harris worried that Biden’s staff looked down on her; she fixated on real and perceived snubs in ways the West Wing found tedious,’ they added, according to excerpts published by Politico on Tuesday.

BREAKING: Zelensky Claims That Biden Intentionally Provoked Putin In To Invading Ukraine In SHOCKING Interview

Published

on

Last month, Russia launched an invasion against Ukraine that has killed tens of thousands of people to date and brought mass destruction to almost every major Ukrainian city.

One of the primary reasons that Putin invaded Ukraine was his fear that the country was re-aligning with the West and could join NATO, further encircling Russia militarily and putting the hostile military alliance directly on his country’s western border.

Ukraine has had aspirations to join NATO since 2008 when it became a part of the alliance’s MAP program which would have put it on track to join at a later point.

According to President Zelensky, President Biden wanted him to pretend that there was a chance Ukraine could be admitted to NATO to antagonize Russia.

During the interview, Zelensky said that NATO and EU countries told him that Ukraine would not be admitted to either the European Union or NATO, but ‘publicly, the doors would remain open’. 

WATCH:

Its very likely that a public admission from EU and NATO countries that there was little interest in admitting Ukraine could have prevented an invasion of Ukraine by Russia.

Leaked diplomatic cables in 2008 more or less predicted the Russian invasion of Ukraine by explaining that NATO enlargement in to Ukraine or Georgia would be a ‘red line’ for Russia, yet the US and NATO countries have refused to give Russia reassurances that they would not admit Ukraine to NATO.

” Following a muted first reaction to Ukraine’s intent to seek a NATO Membership Action Plan (MAP) at the Bucharest summit, Foreign Minister Lavrov and other senior officials have reiterated strong opposition, stressing that Russia would view further eastward expansion as a potential military threat. NATO enlargement, particularly to Ukraine, remains “an emotional and neuralgic” issue for Russia, but strategic policy considerations also underlie strong opposition to NATO membership for Ukraine and Georgia. In Ukraine, these include fears that the issue could potentially split the country in two, leading to violence or even, some claim, civil war, which would force Russia to decide whether to intervene.” Said then U.S Ambassador to Russia William Burns.

Joe Biden: ‘I May Be Irish, But I’m not Stupid’

Published

President Joe Biden celebrated St. Patrick’s Day on Thursday, joking about his Irish heritage during a speech on Capitol Hill.

“Father, before I begin — bless me, Father, for I’m about to sin,” he said as he began his speech by crossing himself and addressing the priest in the room. “I, well, I just want you to know, I may be Irish, but I’m not stupid.”

Biden was referring to his decision to marry his wife, Jill.

The president attended the annual Friends of Ireland Luncheon hosted by Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Capitol Hill.

He appeared wistful by the spirit of the bipartisan event, expressing his desire for more events with both Republicans and Democrats.

“We should have more times like this where Democrats and Republicans get together, and we actually not only agree on one thing, but we remind ourselves we actually like each other,” he said, prompting laughter and applause.

The president delivered a rambling speech, recalling his Irish heritage and multiple sayings from members of his Irish family.

“My grandfather, Ambrose Finnegan, used to say — and I mean this — he’d say, ‘Joey, if you’re lucky enough to be Irish, you’re lucky enough,’” Biden recalled.

“My dad’s expression was, ‘Family is the beginning, the middle, and the end,” he added afterward.

He also recalled a simple slogan from his mother.

“My mom’s expression, for real, was, ‘Joey, get up. Just get up. Get up,’” he recalled.

He also remembered another favorite saying from his mother.

“My mother’s expression, gotten from her grandfather, was, you know, ‘As long as you’re alive, you have an obligation to strive. And you’re not dead until you’ve seen the face of God.’

He focused on the importance of the Irish understanding of equality, quoting his dad.

“My dad’s: ‘No one is better than you, and you’re no better than anyone else,’” he recalled. “Not a joke.”

After his speech House Speaker Nancy Pelosi offered an Irish toast to the president before he left, but not before he recalled another saying from his grandmother.

“Well, my grandmother had one. She said, ‘May those who love us, love us. And those who don’t, may they turn their ankle, so we know they’re coming by their limp,’” he grinned.
