Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 7/15/2023 4:09:36 AM

John Kirby of the Biden administration defended woke policies in the U.S. Military on Friday, saying that Biden absolutely believes that diversity, equity and inclusion is important in the armed services. Every branch of the military has been struggling with recruiting in recent years and this might be one of the reasons why. The military is not supposed to be a lab for social engineering. FOX News reports:Kirby claims anti-woke defense bill puts troops, military readiness at ‘greater risk’. National Security Council spokesman John Kirby claimed that the left-wing policies Republican lawmakers condemn are actually essential for military readiness Friday.

Kirby was promoted to rear admiral during the obozo administration when good military officers were being cleared out to make room for diversity and inclusion flunky hires. He is no more of an admiral than Rachel Levine is and hasn't a clue how to run a tight ship. He was a Pentagon Press Secretary, IOW their professional liar. Looks like he is still in that role.

If these "policies" are essential for military readiness, how did our military survive all these years before woke became cool? This administration is ignoring the fact that recruiting goals are not being met, members are not re-enlisting, and no one wants to be in their woke military. Don't even get me started on an all EV military. "Excuse me, Mohammed, can you direct me to the nearest charging station?"

Kirbys right! Look how well it works for the intelligence agencies, since they started their diversity programs. They hire the deaf, dumb and blind.

That is what is so maddening about forcing "more wokeness" on the military. For a long time the armed services have adhered to the original, clean meaning of Diversity, Inclusion and Equity. The services don't need the new civilian brand because they have been practicing these three doctrines since before the 70s. The newly arrived Wokens don't have anything new to teach the military.

Poster 9 is correct. The draft should have remained in place. Of course, the entire argument is overshadowed by a government that since 1945, did not have the political will to win wars. They kept sending men and women into combat with a rule book that our enemies threw away years ago. By the way John, do women who identify as men have to register for the draft? Also, do men who identify as women get exempted from the draft?

Our enemies, Red China, North Korea, Iran, Russia and bloodthirsty Islam do not give one whit about diversity, equality and inclusion in their armed forces. They laugh at us. They will laugh at us on the battlefied if it gets to that. Diversity, equality and inclusion do not contribute to our readiness to defend our homeland... in fact they divert valuable resources and time from our readiness. Ridiculous pronouns are not going to help us.

Re #1, a read of his bio reveals that early on in his career the Navy diverted him into Public Relations. He was never to be on a path to command a ship. The ranks go with the jobs. Surgeon General is an admiral. Kirby’s ranks came with the government jobs he was assigned.

If the Woke US military persists with DIE, it will shrivel and become unimportant. Self-defense, vigilante organization, guerilla defensive militias will replace the bloated foreign warmongering and non-defending US military. These non-Pentagon solutions have been field-tested and proven.

In these turbulent times, many Americans are thirsting to discover the roots of the founding and reclaim the essence of the idea that became the United States of America. The forgotten revolutionary raid at Stony Point, which occurred 244 years ago this week, exemplifies American courage, innovation, and grit. It typifies American DNA and our thirst for freedom and liberty. On July 15 and 16, 1779, the night was cold, and the wind lashed at the faces of the American light infantry moving through the darkness. One by one, the Continentals stepped off solid ground and plunged into waist-deep, thick, green muck.

LONDON— Russia halted an unprecedented wartime deal on Monday that allows grain to flow from Ukraine to countries in Africa, the Middle East and Asia where hunger is a growing threat and high food prices have pushed more people into poverty. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov announced Russia would suspend the Black Sea Grain Initiative until its demands to get its own agricultural shipments to the world are met — even though the country has been shipping record amounts of wheat and its fertilizers also have been flowing. “When the part of the Black Sea deal related to Russia is implemented, Russia will immediately return to the implementation of the deal,” Peskov said.

In his first comments on the delivery of cluster munitions to Ukraine from the U.S., Putin said that Russia has not used cluster bombs in its war in Ukraine so far. “Until now, we have not done this, we have not used it, and we have not had such a need,” he said, although the use of cluster bombs by both Russia and Ukraine has been widely documented,

Recently the Supreme Court put an end to Joe Biden’s efforts to give erstwhile college students almost a trillion dollars in “debt relief,” although the Biden administration is trying again. That’s a lot of money… But that’s actually a tiny fraction of the money the government has wasted on redistribution, aka social programs, over the last six decades. Next year, the United States will commemorate the 60th anniversary of the War on Poverty, which President Lyndon B. Johnson initiated in 1964. The War’s programs initially started on a modest scale but have expanded almost parabolically since. By the War’s 50th anniversary, the government had spent more than $22 trillion on various

On August 23, 1996, the New York Times reported on its front page, above the fold right, “Prime Evidence Found That Device Exploded in Cabin of Flight 800.” According to the Times, only the FBI’s uncertainty about whether the device was a bomb or a missile kept it from declaring TWA 800’s destruction a crime.

Hunter Biden’s associate in his business with Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings discussed expectations of “high-ranking US officials in Ukraine” one month before then-Vice President Joe Biden visited Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to demand the firing of a prosecutor investigating the company. Joe Biden, who bragged in 2018 about the firing of prosecutor Viktor Shokin by Poroshenko, was on an official visit to Ukraine in 2015. During the visit, he met with Poroshenko in Kiev about Ukraine’s corruption. But four months after the meeting, Poroshenko fired Shokin, a prosecutor investigating Burisma, which paid Hunter Biden $83,000 a month to sit on its board.

If, like me, you find the presidential debate format a rather meaningless exercise, you will be astonished at what one-on-one interviews by a skilled interrogator can accomplish.

The supporters of former President Trump are absolutely correct about one thing. If every single Republican pledged their allegiance to him and fell in line he’d win the nomination easily. But he’d also lose the general election, again. He does not receive enough support from outside the traditional Republican and MAGA base to win in 2024. Hillary Clinton beat Trump by roughly 3 million in the popular vote in 2016. While Trump indeed did win the election by taking the required 270 electoral votes, just a few thousand votes in each of the key swing states would have changed that outcome into a Hillary Clinton landslide victory in 2016.

Investigative reporter Paul Sperry made several observations about Hunter’s booze-filled days— which apparently aren’t over. Sperry detailed Hunter’s failed rehab stints which reportedly started in 2003, relapsing at least ten times. “Hunter Biden, whose addiction to coke started @ 18

A federal judge in Oregon ruled on Friday that a new state gun law does not violate the US Constitution, keeping one of the toughest gun laws in the country in place. US District Court Judge Karin Immergut ruled that Ballot Measure 114’s restrictions on large-capacity magazines that hold more than 10 rounds are constitutional because these magazines are “not commonly used for self-defense, and are therefore not protected by the Second Amendment.” “Even if LCMs are protected by the Second Amendment, BM 114’s restrictions are consistent with this Nation’s history and tradition of regulating uniquely dangerous features of weapons and firearms to protect public safety,” the ruling said.
