Posted on 08/29/2016 5:39:34 PM PDT by pboyington
The US armed forces are being strangled to death by the agents of political correctness, feminism, cultural Marxism and the LGBT agenda. Those agents defined as Barack Hussein Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Ash Carter, Ray Mabus, Eric Fanning and Deborah Lee James.
Not a day passes now without some new and completely absurd directive emanating from the Pentagon with one goal; the total feminization and destruction of the US military.
Yet, as transgenders demand unisex latrines and women are authorized to serve in Delta Force, not a sound emanates from those Rubber Men of Arlington, those spineless mannequins called the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, General Joe Dunford and his cowards of the round table have taken a La Cosa Nostra vow of silence as the military takes its final breath and the lights are finally turned off in this great land.
Have no doubt, the US military is in its death throes, courtesy of the Obama Administration and its willing, treasonous executioners.
From Mike Mullen to Martin Dempsey to Joe Dunford, the Chairmen of the JCS have stood silent as the military implodes around them.
Sadly, the Pentagon has no modern Colonel David Hackworths. In 1971, Hack was a highly decorated combat vet and leader who was being groomed for his first star. He was on a high trajectory in the lean green machine. But, Hack threw his career away when he went on the ABC talk show, Issues and Answers and told the world that the Armys strategy to fight the Vietnam War wasnt working and wouldnt work unless drastic changes were made.
While Hack was a polarizing figure who was both loved and hated by his men and readers (most of the love came from the lower ranks and the hatred from the higher ranks and the men he deemed the Perfumed Princes of the Pentagon), no one can argue that the man had the courage of his convictions, aka moral fortitude, aka guts.
Where is such moral courage and indeed concern about the dire situation in the military today among not only the JCS, but the other members of its ranks?
In over seven years, as the Obama White House has taken a chainsaw and meat cleaver to the military, not one word of protest has come from the JCS, the senior leaders of the military, the middle management of the military, the non-commissioned officers of the military and the civilian bureaucrats who work for the military.
A silence has descended upon the military that is not only stifling, but a talisman of ruin and destruction for it.
You might expect someone from the Joint Chiefs to come forward and express their dismay at the Maoist Cultural Revolution destroying the armed forces. The Joint Chiefs have reached their glass ceiling. There is nothing left for them except a pension and a defense contractor position.
You might expect
Then there are the senior leaders of the military, the other generals and admirals and colonels and Navy captains. Many of these personnel know that they are going no further in their careers. Time is spent polishing their resumes while they plod through a final year on active duty. You would think that someone might come forward and tell the world how Barack Obama is destroying their military.
You would think
There is the militarys middle management, the majors and lieutenant-colonels in the Army, Marines and Air Force and the lieutenant commanders and full commanders in the Navy. There are the thousands of DoD civilians who work for the military. Perhaps one of them would step forward and express their disgust with the social engineering project that the military has become.
Perhaps, but no
Of course there are the militarys non-commissioned officers, the sergeants and the Navy chiefs, the people who make the whole thing work, the factory foremen of the military; the blue collar, salt of the earth folks who always know the real story and can separate fact from fiction in seconds. Maybe one of the militarys NCOs would come forward and report to the world the absolute horse dung state of the military under this President.
Maybe, but not
Finally, there are the militarys junior officers, the lieutenants and captains, the ensigns and lieutenants in the Navy. Many junior officers are just clocking in their required service time of a few years on active duty. Many have no interest in making it a career. It would appear that these would be the people who would be fearless at reporting just how eight up the military was now.
It would appear, but no
I wont count the militarys young enlisted personnel. They are too inexperienced, too young and frankly are like children in a dysfunctional family that have no idea how functional families actually function. To expect a 20 year old private to be the voice of disdain for a system he barely knows is asking too much.
In over seven years, the world hasnt heard so much as a peep from members of the military and DoD civilians about the social engineering ruining the armed forces. There have been no JCS press conferences, no JCS resignations, no senior leaders writing OPEDs in disgust, no You Tube videos of protest, no radio and TV appearances, no anonymous cries in the wilderness, no pen names used in frustration; nothing: not one syllable, consonant, word, contraction, sentence or paragraph of protest for what Barack Hussein Obama and his henchmen are doing to the glorious and heroic US military.
Where were the members of the US military when cadets paraded around in red high heels, men were forced to conduct PT in pregnancy simulators, the Bible and Declaration of Independence were touted as sexist documents, open homosexuality was authorized, transgenders were allowed to serve, women were continually recycled through Ranger School, hundreds of senior leaders were purged, breastfeeding was authorized on field exercises, Marines Corps Unconscious Bias brainwashing teams arrived on base, white privilege presentations became SOP and sensitivity training was conducted in combat zones?
Where were they? Where?
Why are members of the military from top to near bottom remaining silent? Well, probably 25% of the military now agrees with the social engineering insanity taking place. Another 50% are just hunkering down and waiting to clock out. The last 25% are the people fuming inside every day as they watch the sensitivity training videos and read the breastfeeding lactation memos distributed to Special Operations Command. They are livid inside, ready to burst, yet something holds them back. Fear holds them back. They are too worried about repercussions, about someone finding out that they said something. They are terrified of the big bad civilian world and unemployed Obama Land.
I am asking the members of the US military again to come forth, anonymously if necessary, and voice your opinion. Tell the world how Obamas left wing directives are a Stage 4 cancer killing the morale, readiness and warrior spirit of the military. Write an OPED under a pen name and voice your discontent. Tell the world the real story of how these leftist ideologues are hijacking the military.
For Gods sake do something before its too late
God told Abraham he would not destroy Sodom if he could find ten righteous men.
Is there one righteous person in the US military with the courage to speak out?
A couple of us have been writing about this eunuchification of the US military (i.e. castration by machete) for years here at FR. I’m glad that Starmann was able to rant and name names for our readers to see who the PC Cowards, Career Cowards and Obama asskissers are/were.
If there was no other reason to elect Trumph, it would be to clean up the pansies in DOD and put in real fighters. That is why the Clintonistas fear Gen. Michael Flynn so much. He won’t put up with this crap. Might even start recruiting firing squads for traitors and cowards.
John Bolton as Sec. of State? He’s clean out the SD and the UN with a flamethrower. Like it!
Remember to Vote (if in Chicago, often) in November.
There are more to blame:
1) Congress confirmed the appointments of the cabinet secretaries and the general officers.
2) The Commander in Chief who made the appointments and sent them to Congress for confirmation was elected twice by the American people.
The American people had the opportunity to choose twice. The consequences are the result of the choice.
When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle. (Edmund Burke)
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil, is that good men do nothing. (Edmund Burke)
A Republic must either preserve its virtue or lose its liberty. (John Witherspoon)
Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them. (Frederick Douglass)
If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin. (Samuel Adams)
What country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. (Thomas Jefferson, Letter to Colonel Smith, November 13, 1787.)
Please give credit where credit is due. The social experimentation began in the 90’s under the reign of the co-Presidents Klintoon especially Herself. As I recall, the first move was an effort to make combat forces co-ed so as to accelerate promotional opportunities for the meaner sex.
I am a very proud 11C1P who served under the great Ronald Reagan. Back then I hoped as I got older I would have a son who would also follow his previous generations and serve this great country that has served us so well.
Today I have that son, although only 13 years old. Would I let him enlist today hell #### no.
That saddens me to my core.
Just a guess but I'd say it has something to do with all the field grade officers (0-4 thru 0-6) getting canned for things like "loss of command confidence" and some of the more nebulous infractions of the political-Left's orthodoxies. We all know what the carrot is... promotion. But Obama's Pentagon has been making liberal use of the stick... early separation from the service.
The Obama administration kicked out General Carter Ham and a black admiral, I think, who wanted to go rescue those trapped in Benghazi.
Many military officers have resigned commissions in protest, and Obama uses it as an opportunity to promote more compliant people or doesn’t fill the positions and calls it cutting the military.
With regard to defense contractors, they’ve been pushed since 2008 to meet far left political metrics to get federal contracts. It is better to implement social engineering of the workforce than engineer a better jet or build a cheaper missile. So Lockheed Martin, Northrup Gruman, Raytheon and Boeing were racing to get a perfect score on the Out and Equal Index to get preference for contract awards before same sex marriage was legal. And they go even further left and enforce it through various HR policies in order to gain political favor and favorable PR with a fawning, equally left press.
I found myself trying to dissuade a young man from joining the military, suggested the Texas State Guard instead, because he was devout Christian.
It’s taken a long time to accept what has happened to my beloved US
Navy. My ship, USS Comstock, was one of the first to accept women on
a combat ship. Im proud to say I served on that ship with an all male crew.
We were a well oiled machine and we were all proud of it. I use to worry
about what was happening but my wife convinced me to let go. It was
slowly killing me. Little lowly ol me can’t do a damn thing about the slow
methodical march of political correctness.
The infiltration is because civilian voters control the military. These civilians are not worth dying for!
I wish I had an answer. Not bragging, but I'm considered pretty smart and I haven't a clue other than working to elect Trump and the rest of the GOP.
I devote part of every working day working on the election. I spend the sabbath with my family and do a little flying to keep my skills sharp.
Exactly. It sucks, but the refusals have to start somewhere. If someone orders a man to put on that ridiculous pregnancy simulator, he should said “no way....sir”. Sometimes, mutiny is legitimate.
Imagine giving that order to a Marine circa 1945. Imagine the Soldiers in Hurtgen forest being given that order. Imagine a sailor on the USS Franklin or Forrestal being given that order. A shavetail would have lost some teeth.
Garryowen! Seventh First!
That pictures sickens me.
Me too FRiend.
My son was to carry on the proud tradition set by my Dad in WWI, carried on by me in Vietnam.
He did Jr. High and High School JROTC and wanted to go on to the ROTC program at Oregon State University.
We had a long talk. He cried and so did I.
Never 0bama's Military!
Only in time of war when America needs more patriots!
Placemark and Trump needs to fix this once he’s in the WH.
the wages in the military used to be very low, but that has all changed...study after study shows that for any similar job in the private sector, the military version pays more, has better sick leave, vacation, housing assistance and then that great big pension...
yes, some military are in danger zones...but lets be honest...MOST are not...
so what happens is that people that have absolutely no qualifications to be in the military stay in the military for the benefits and pensions...
so what we have is basically mercenaries...
and mercenaries simply follow orders so they can collect...

Feel free to copy this info and spread it to other forums.
Sadly, the article is spot on.
Generals and admirals attacking Obuma are out there; however, nobody would expect the neo-Nazi propaganda press to report it. You gotta dig for the info...
To balance out this article you wrote, you should consider writing about these military leaders.
