How Obama Subverted the American Military

Editors’ note: This article on the subversion of the American military is one of a series Daniel Greenfield has written on what is probably the greatest and most immediate threat to America’s security and survival. It’s a subject surrounded by silence. See the Freedom Center’s articles on this issue at its new campaign site, Committee for a Patriotic Military. Also make sure to read Daniel Greenfield’s booklet, Disloyal: How the Military Brass is Betraying Our Country.

By the time Barack Obama left office, every branch of the military was smaller than it had been on September 11. But the change in size concealed the true impact of America’s most left-wing president in undermining our national security and weakening us in the face of our enemies.

 “I’ve got a pen, and I’ve got a phone,” Obama famously boasted. He used the pen to unleash a blizzard of executive orders and memorandums. Some led to outraged protests, but some of his most devastating penned assaults on our nation’s military flew under the radar.

One of those took place during the end of his last year in office. His memorandum, “Promoting Diversity and Inclusion in the National Security Workforce”, created the woke military of the Biden administration by putting identity politics, diversity quotas, and political indoctrination at the heart of the military’s mission.

Obama had always resented the military. Even former General McChrystal, an Obama loyalist fired for describing his boss a little too aptly in the presence of a Rolling Stone reporter, described him as “uncomfortable and intimidated” by generals. But Obama’s parting shot at the military cut the generals down to size by transforming them into community organizers.

His order redefined diversity as the military’s “greatest asset” and reinvented national security as a system for maximizing employment diversity by race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and every identity politics metric, but not the military metrics that truly mattered, readiness, competence, and a willingness to wage war in defense of the homeland.

Along with transforming the military into another quota-based federal employment agency in which skills and capability mattered much less than being a disabled transgender Eskimo, the order also demanded that national security agencies should make “implicit or unconscious bias” training mandatory for “senior leadership and management positions”. Divisions that didn’t earn sufficiently high IQ (Inclusion Quotient) scores would also be hit with bias training.

Implicit bias training is a form of political indoctrination which asserts that all white people are racist. Its sessions force participants into accepting its radical racial worldview or be treated as obstacles to the new organizational mission. Implicit bias training has succeeded in forcing out talented executives from corporations and officers from the military, replacing them with political activists and bootlickers cowardly enough to repeat Marxist dogma for the sake of their careers.

Obama’s memorandum led to the expansion of implicit bias within the military such as Army Secretary Eric Fanning’s infamous Directive 2017-06 ordering mandatory implicit bias training for “soldiers and employees in senior leadership and management positions” that was protested by chaplains for infringing on religious freedom. While the Trump administration later ordered a ban on such abusive training in the military, by then Obama’s order had long since been circulating in its cultural and organizational bloodstream, and was quickly restarted by Biden.

Biden’s first executive orders not only rescinded the ban, but doubled down on making the military more woke, more racist towards white Americans, and more incapable than ever. The new equity push went even further by attributing any failure to meet racial, gender, and other identity politics quotas to the grand hoax of “systemic racism” –a practice outlawed by the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Meeting these quotas became the foremost task of senior leadership.

China might beat us in the hypersonic weapons race, but America’s top military brass would pull out all the stops to make sure that they had the most diverse arrangement of people, preferably in senior leadership positions, to establish their progressive credentials.

The ‘wokening’ of the military was not a bottom-up, but a top-down phenomenon, imposed at every step from branch leaders to academy superintendents, after originating from the White House. Obama’s “Promoting Diversity and Inclusion in the National Security Workforce” was one of the final building blocks for his key administration goal of bringing the most conservative arm of the federal government into compliance with the political agendas of the radical Left.

Obama’s former NASA administrator, Charles Bolden, had caused a stir when he frankly told Al Jazeera that his boss had given him three top priorities, none of which involved space, but one of which was Muslim self-esteem. No military leader had come out with an equally honest assessment, but Obama’s priorities for the military was looting its physical resources for environmental gimmicks like the Navy’s disastrous biofuels programs, and its human resources for a massive community organizing and Marxist indoctrination effort under the flag of diversity.

Obama didn’t just leave the military smaller in size, but smaller in spirit, its leadership class no longer dedicated to national security, but to the identity political agendas of the radical Left.

The U.S. Military Continues to Collapse

The letter of resignation below represents today the feelings of about just the entire US military according to our sources.  Our heroic soldiers have

had just about as much as they can take from our woke government and their imposition of woke perversions on the military as sodomy, abortion,

critical race theory and transgenderism. We saw the likes of this in the similarly rotten and corrupt Weimar Republic though the German military was

largely unaffected where Prussianism prevailed. I always thought that 1933 Germany required the Versailles Treaty, the hyperinflation of 1920-1923,

and a 1929-1933 depression culminating in 50% German unemployment to create the National Socialist Revolution but this may not be the case aswe watch the US morally implode into an Aldous Huxley medical dictatorship under an Orwellian Animal Farm under the most degraded values inhistory. Here mass abortion has killed in the US alone 60 million souls not to speak of our US influence on the 1.5 billion abortion murders worldwidenot including the after morning pill.

The following quote was taken from an RT article by Chris Hedges that appeared today that complements my points. As my above articles just above points out that Brzezinski lured the Russians into Afghanistan and here was the cost:

One million Afghan civilians were killed in the nine-year conflict with the Soviets, along with 90,000 mujahideen fighters, 18,000 Afghan troops, and 14,500 Soviet soldiers. But these deaths, along with the destruction of Afghanistan, were “worth it” to cripple the Soviets.https://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/ads?us_privacy=1—&client=ca-pub-9106533008329745&output=html&h=280&adk=1579600333&adf=1168863839&pi=t.aa~a.4035849582~i.38~rp.4&w=649&fwrn=4&fwrnh=100&lmt=1630689157&num_ads=1&rafmt=1&armr=3&sem=mc&pwprc=8684081392&psa=1&ad_type=text_image&format=649×280&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.lewrockwell.com%2F2021%2F09%2Fno_author%2Fthe-collapse-of-the-us-military-continues%2F&flash=0&fwr=0&pra=3&rh=163&rw=649&rpe=1&resp_fmts=3&wgl=1&fa=27&adsid=ChAI8I_HiQYQgebL4OSZ-tFwEkwAwMEuZ__0-08-uk_WbZuUXc3k_38qHkQYJqXQIpkiAXwA0MGm_fXFjw9b-Ms2b5CMioHmyqTxCHckh3yvQ861x9xkYDdgc_UUOpKc&uach=WyJBbmRyb2lkIiwiMTEiLCIiLCJTTS1UNzIwIiwiOTIuMC40NTE1LjE2NiIsW10sbnVsbCxudWxsLG51bGxd&tt_state=W3siaXNzdWVyT3JpZ2luIjoiaHR0cHM6Ly9hdHRlc3RhdGlvbi5hbmRyb2lkLmNvbSIsInN0YXRlIjo3fV0.&dt=1630691831722&bpp=14&bdt=6296&idt=-M&shv=r20210831&mjsv=m202109010101&ptt=9&saldr=aa&abxe=1&cookie=ID%3D9220ab6b9f1eddd1-2281c538dc7a0014%3AT%3D1628534777%3ART%3D1629899530%3AS%3DALNI_MY_9P6AN3EERJ4ZYbCkP9XGA2VNNQ&prev_fmts=0x0&nras=2&correlator=7999463961539&frm=20&pv=1&ga_vid=1378732058.1628097017&ga_sid=1630691829&ga_hid=1468306322&ga_fc=0&u_tz=-240&u_his=1&u_java=0&u_h=1138&u_w=712&u_ah=1138&u_aw=712&u_cd=24&u_nplug=0&u_nmime=0&adx=16&ady=1586&biw=712&bih=970&scr_x=0&scr_y=568&eid=44748449%2C31062313%2C21067496%2C31062297%2C31062094%2C31062312&oid=2&pvsid=4163926607937801&pem=653&eae=0&fc=1408&brdim=0%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C712%2C0%2C712%2C1066%2C712%2C1066&vis=1&rsz=%7C%7Cs%7C&abl=NS&fu=128&bc=31&jar=2021-09-03-15&ifi=2&uci=a!2&btvi=1&fsb=1&xpc=WHRSVuZo3X&p=https%3A//www.lewrockwell.com&dtd=97

Jimmy Carter’s national security advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski, along with Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency, oversaw the arming of the most radical Islamic mujahideen groups fighting the Soviet occupation forces, leading to the extinguishing of the secular, democratic Afghan opposition. Brzezinski detailed the strategy – designed, he said, to give the Soviet Union its Vietnam – taken by the Carter administration following the 1979 Soviet invasion to prop up the Marxist regime of Hafizullah Amin in Kabul:

We immediately launched a twofold process when we heard that the Soviets had entered Afghanistan. The first involved direct reactions and sanctions focused on the Soviet Union, and both the State Department and the National Security Agency prepared long lists of sanctions to be adopted, of steps to be taken to increase the international costs to the Soviet Union of their actions. And the second course of action led to my going to Pakistan a month or so after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, for the purpose of coordinating with the Pakistanis a joint response, the purpose of which would be to make the Soviets bleed for as much and as long as is possible; and we engaged in that effort in a collaborative sense with the Saudis, the Egyptians, the British, the Chinese, and we started providing weapons to the Mujaheddin, from various sources again — for example, some Soviet arms from the Egyptians and the Chinese. We even got Soviet arms from the Czechoslovak communist government, since it was obviously susceptible to material incentives; and at some point we started buying arms for the Mujahideen from the Soviet army in Afghanistan, because that army was increasingly corrupt.https://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/ads?us_privacy=1—&client=ca-pub-9106533008329745&output=html&h=280&adk=1579600333&adf=723713450&pi=t.aa~a.4035849582~i.42~rp.4&w=649&fwrn=4&fwrnh=100&lmt=1630689157&num_ads=1&rafmt=1&armr=3&sem=mc&pwprc=8684081392&psa=1&ad_type=text_image&format=649×280&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.lewrockwell.com%2F2021%2F09%2Fno_author%2Fthe-collapse-of-the-us-military-continues%2F&flash=0&fwr=0&pra=3&rh=163&rw=649&rpe=1&resp_fmts=3&wgl=1&fa=27&adsid=ChAI8I_HiQYQgebL4OSZ-tFwEkwAwMEuZ__0-08-uk_WbZuUXc3k_38qHkQYJqXQIpkiAXwA0MGm_fXFjw9b-Ms2b5CMioHmyqTxCHckh3yvQ861x9xkYDdgc_UUOpKc&uach=WyJBbmRyb2lkIiwiMTEiLCIiLCJTTS1UNzIwIiwiOTIuMC40NTE1LjE2NiIsW10sbnVsbCxudWxsLG51bGxd&tt_state=W3siaXNzdWVyT3JpZ2luIjoiaHR0cHM6Ly9hdHRlc3RhdGlvbi5hbmRyb2lkLmNvbSIsInN0YXRlIjo3fV0.&dt=1630691831722&bpp=6&bdt=6297&idt=-M&shv=r20210831&mjsv=m202109010101&ptt=9&saldr=aa&abxe=1&cookie=ID%3D9220ab6b9f1eddd1-2281c538dc7a0014%3AT%3D1628534777%3ART%3D1629899530%3AS%3DALNI_MY_9P6AN3EERJ4ZYbCkP9XGA2VNNQ&prev_fmts=0x0%2C649x280&nras=3&correlator=7999463961539&frm=20&pv=1&ga_vid=1378732058.1628097017&ga_sid=1630691829&ga_hid=1468306322&ga_fc=0&u_tz=-240&u_his=1&u_java=0&u_h=1138&u_w=712&u_ah=1138&u_aw=712&u_cd=24&u_nplug=0&u_nmime=0&adx=16&ady=2322&biw=712&bih=970&scr_x=0&scr_y=568&eid=44748449%2C31062313%2C21067496%2C31062297%2C31062094%2C31062312&oid=2&pvsid=4163926607937801&pem=653&eae=0&fc=1408&brdim=0%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C712%2C0%2C712%2C1066%2C712%2C1066&vis=1&rsz=%7C%7Cs%7C&abl=NS&fu=128&bc=31&jar=2021-09-03-15&ifi=3&uci=a!3&btvi=2&fsb=1&xpc=e2cm3uQ0qG&p=https%3A//www.lewrockwell.com&dtd=125

Next Hedges writes about the Afghanistan heroin war that was justified by 9-11 that no one in Afghanistan was involved in. The CIA brought us in there for only one purpose which was to restart the heroin.  As my heroin war pieces point out, no member of Islam was involved in 9-11 but we invaded Afghanistan for the only purpose which was to restart the heroin production shut down by Mullah Omar which was a righteous act. Here is the cost of the Afghanistan War Two.

Here Chris Hedges:

Things are already dire. There are some 14 million Afghans – one in three – who lack sufficient food. There are two million Afghan children who are malnourished. There are 3.5 million people in Afghanistan who have been displaced from their homes. The war has wrecked infrastructure. A drought destroyed 40 percent of the nation’s crops last year. The assault on the Afghan economy is already seeing food prices skyrocket. The sanctions and severance of aid will force civil servants to go without salaries, and the health service, already chronically short of medicine and equipment, will collapse. The suffering orchestrated by the empire will be of biblical proportions. And this is what the empire wants.

UNICEF estimates that 500,000 children were killed as a direct result of sanctions on Iraq. Expect child deaths in Afghanistan to soar above that horrifying figure. And expect the same imperial heartlessness Madeleine Albright, then the US ambassador to the United Nations, exhibited when she told ‘60 Minutes’ correspondent Lesley Stahl that the deaths of half a million Iraqi children because of the sanctions were “worth it.” Or the heartlessness of Hillary Clinton, who joked, “We came, we saw, he died” when informed of Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi’s brutal death. Or the demand by Democratic Senator Zell Miller of Georgia, who after the attacks of 9/11 declared: “I say, bomb the hell out of them. If there’s collateral damage, so be it.” No matter that the empire has since turned Libya, along with Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Yemen, into cauldrons of violence, chaos, and misery. The power to destroy is an intoxicating drug that is its own justification.

Death of 500,000 Innocent Children is Worth It – We Want Oil – Madeline Albright

Murdering innocent civilians in war did not start in Afghanistan or Vietnam, or Korea but in World War Two.  It was not US policy in World War One for its soldiers to kill women and children as we did at Hiroshima and Nagasaki which were not military targets. Secretary of State James Byrnes persuaded Truman to nuclear bomb Hiroshima and Nagasaki to deter Stalin from overrunning Europe as our forces could not hold back the Russian Army which had faced 80% of the German Army finest divisions whereas the US faced at Normandy and in Europe largely the rump of the German Army except at the Battle of the Bulge where we suffered an attack by crack German Panzer divisions brought from the Eastern Front.  Hitler rolled the dice in an attempt to cut off the bulk of the Anglo-Saxon Army that required capturing allied fuel depots. Germany largely lost the war based on lack of oil.  It was a close call anyway as they came near to some major oil depots. Allied forces suffered over 75,000 casualties.

“The Cherwell memo described in quantitative terms the effect on Germany of the British bombing offensive on Germany between March, 1942-September, 1943.  This paper laid down the strategic policy.  The bombing must be directed essentially against German working class houses. Middle-class houses have too much space around them, and so are bound to waste bombs; factories and “military objectives” had long since been forgotten, except in official bulletins, since they were much too difficult to hit. (The meaning here is that more women and children could be murdered per bomb for lower classes as their homes were closer together.) The paper claimed that–given a total concentration of effort on the production and use of bombing aircraft–it would be possible, in all German towns (that is, those with more than 50,000 inhabitants), to destroy 50% of the houses.”https://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/ads?us_privacy=1—&client=ca-pub-9106533008329745&output=html&h=280&adk=1579600333&adf=2468624506&pi=t.aa~a.4035849582~i.58~rp.4&w=649&fwrn=4&fwrnh=100&lmt=1630689157&num_ads=1&rafmt=1&armr=3&sem=mc&pwprc=8684081392&psa=1&ad_type=text_image&format=649×280&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.lewrockwell.com%2F2021%2F09%2Fno_author%2Fthe-collapse-of-the-us-military-continues%2F&flash=0&fwr=0&pra=3&rh=163&rw=649&rpe=1&resp_fmts=3&wgl=1&fa=27&adsid=ChAI8I_HiQYQgebL4OSZ-tFwEkwAwMEuZ__0-08-uk_WbZuUXc3k_38qHkQYJqXQIpkiAXwA0MGm_fXFjw9b-Ms2b5CMioHmyqTxCHckh3yvQ861x9xkYDdgc_UUOpKc&uach=WyJBbmRyb2lkIiwiMTEiLCIiLCJTTS1UNzIwIiwiOTIuMC40NTE1LjE2NiIsW10sbnVsbCxudWxsLG51bGxd&tt_state=W3siaXNzdWVyT3JpZ2luIjoiaHR0cHM6Ly9hdHRlc3RhdGlvbi5hbmRyb2lkLmNvbSIsInN0YXRlIjo3fV0.&dt=1630691831722&bpp=4&bdt=6296&idt=4&shv=r20210831&mjsv=m202109010101&ptt=9&saldr=aa&abxe=1&cookie=ID%3D9220ab6b9f1eddd1-2281c538dc7a0014%3AT%3D1628534777%3ART%3D1629899530%3AS%3DALNI_MY_9P6AN3EERJ4ZYbCkP9XGA2VNNQ&prev_fmts=0x0%2C649x280%2C649x280%2C649x280&nras=5&correlator=7999463961539&frm=20&pv=1&ga_vid=1378732058.1628097017&ga_sid=1630691829&ga_hid=1468306322&ga_fc=0&u_tz=-240&u_his=1&u_java=0&u_h=1138&u_w=712&u_ah=1138&u_aw=712&u_cd=24&u_nplug=0&u_nmime=0&adx=16&ady=4370&biw=712&bih=970&scr_x=0&scr_y=568&eid=44748449%2C31062313%2C21067496%2C31062297%2C31062094%2C31062312&oid=2&pvsid=4163926607937801&pem=653&eae=0&fc=1408&brdim=0%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C712%2C0%2C712%2C1066%2C712%2C1066&vis=1&rsz=%7C%7Cs%7C&abl=NS&fu=128&bc=31&jar=2021-09-03-15&ifi=5&uci=a!5&btvi=4&fsb=1&xpc=dCSKqfS3GQ&p=https%3A//www.lewrockwell.com&dtd=163

The US Air Force General Jimmy Doolittle vehemently opposed bombing women and children unlike General Curtis Lemay who supervised the nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
