Upon taking the oath of office, President Trump must act immediately to save the military.
The US military is on death’s door. For eight years the Obama administration and its willing leftist executioners have used the military as a giant social experiment to implement the most lunatic and destructive policies that have left the armed forces on life support.
Trump’s Pentagon to do list can be summarized into three specific areas:
- Purge the duds, feather merchants and perfumed princes from the ranks of the military and the DoD.
- Stop the politically correct insanity largely responsible for wrecking the military.
- Rebuild the military through increased defense spending.
1.Flush the duds, feather merchants and perfumed princes:
President Obama inundated the Pentagon and the senior ranks of the military with lackeys who were willing to either green light the PC lunacy or at the very least, look the other way as the fires of the Cultural Revolution burned around them.
The first person Trump must fire is Secretary of the Navy, Ray Mabus, who will go down in history as the worst SecNav in the long and glorious history of the Navy. Mabus is the idiot responsible for ignoring the Marines $36 million study that showed in minute detail how and why women shouldn’t serve in the combat arms. Mabus ordered 240 year old job titles in the Navy to be made gender neutral. He instructed the Marines to conduct so called unconscious bias training or Corps-wide Soviet-style brainwashing, that is currently being conducted by mobile teams. Their mission is to convince men in the Marines that women can go toe to toe with an ISIS jihadi in hand to hand combat. Mabus was one of the main proponents calling for women to serve in the combat arms and special operations. He will be missed like a bad case of the clap.
Right behind Mabus on the chopping block is Secretary of Defense Ash Carter. Carter is a nice guy with a platter of physics degrees. He should be working at NASA. Instead he’s sitting in the Pentagon and has overseen much of the PC insanity, gender neutral lunacy and defense cuts that are responsible for the military’s current problems. Carter is a dutiful minion who would authorize the wearing of pink leg warmers for Delta Force if so ordered by Valerie Jarrett.
Next is Secretary of the Army, Eric Fanning, whose only achievements are pushing the LGBT agenda in the military, writing Breastfeeding and Lactation Support memorandums for record and continuing the Ranger School cover up, begun by his predecessor, John McHugh.
Trump must also purge most of the generals and admirals serving on the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The Joint Chiefs have become nothing more than dime store dummies in dress uniforms who rubber stamp every directive emanating from cultural Marxists in the White House and the Sec Def. They have a higher duty to their country than to merely obey orders that they know are detrimental to good order and discipline and readiness. They have failed in their duty and they damn well know it.
2) Stop the PC insanity immediately
President Trump must order the new SecDef to halt the dangerous politically correct policies that are a Stage 4 cancer inside the ranks of the military. The sensitivity training, the white privilege training, the online classes detailing the Bible and the Constitution as sexist documents, the lactations memos, the pregnancy simulators and the wearing of red high heels by male ROTC cadets must end.
Government funding for gender reassignment surgery must cease immediately. In fact, transgenders must be banned from serving in the ranks for the sole reason that gender dysphoria is a mental illness, not something cute and trendy to be discussed by the women on the View.
The military should return to Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and ban open homosexuality, which is a hindrance to morale and readiness.
Most importantly, President Trump should order the new SecDef to halt the authorization for women to serve in the combat arms and special operations forces. Furthermore, the President should ask Congress to investigate the graduation of three females from US Army Ranger School last year under the most dubious conditions.
3. Increase defense spending
President Trump and Congress must work together to increase defense spending, in order to rebuild our military and create a force capable of meeting every challenge and defeating every enemy we may face.
President Trump must fill the DoD with people who will not only rebuild the physical capabilities of the military, but also rejuvenate the military’s warrior spirit. The military must cease being a social experiment and a haven for those only seeking benefits. The military is not Sweden in camouflage. It is not a maternity ward, a day care center, nor is it a lactation station or a free jobs program.
The military’s sole mission is to kill people and break things. It is about time the military returned to doing what it does best, defending this country and when needed, winning wars.
