The recent Atlantic article that accused Trump of attacking the military, calling them cowards and losers, did not happen in a vacuum. Neither did the accusation that Trump would not leave the White House if he lost, requiring military to evict him.
Nor did this: Military brass quietly indicating that the troops should not follow a presidential order. Michael Anton reported in his article, The Coming Coup: “They were bolstered by many former generals—including President Trump’s own first Secretary of Defense—who stated openly what the brass would only hint at. Then, as nationwide riots really got rolling in early June, the sitting Secretary of Defense himself all but publicly told the president not to invoke the Insurrection Act. His implicit message was: ‘Mr. President, don’t tell us to do that, because we won’t, and you know what happens after that.’”
These show a military out of the control of the Commander in Chief. Why would this happen when Trump so avidly supports them?
Bookworm room writes that “Obama seeded the Pentagon with Deep Staters who have more reverence for permanent power than they do for the Constitution. After all, Trump, by making peace in the Middle East and in the Balkans, and by refusing to engage in wars that don’t directly benefit America, is a threat to these officers — and that’s despite the fact the Trump has built up the military like crazy. Once the military’s built up, the retired officers no longer have well-paid sinecures in the military-industrial complex and the active-duty officers have fewer opportunities for promotion. For them, Trump’s a career killer.”
So once again, it boils down to money and power.
We get that the brass has tarnished, but how did Obama destroy the American soldier himself?
They turned the military into a social justice experiment, that went far beyond ending Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and, instead, allowing gay troops to serve openly. In the new order, the military starting celebrating and elevating people like “Harpy Daniels“:
Years before he became a yeoman 3rd class in the United States Navy, Joshua Kelley was entertaining exuberant crowds under his drag name, “Harpy Daniels.”
The 24-year-old Berwick, Pennsylvania native, who currently serves as an administrative supervisor aboard the forward-deployed aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan, brought Harpy along for the ride when he decided to join the Navy in February 2016, a choice he said was heavily inspired by his father.
Now, despite the furious operational tempo the Navy demands of its personnel, Kelley manages to find time to perform as Harpy Daniels on ship during MWR-sanctioned events designed to boost morale and provide sailors a much-needed break from daily burdens. He even took home a $1,000 Navy Exchange card for a second place finish in a recent lip sync competition.
Within his first year in the Navy, Kelley was voted to be the president of Strike Fighter Squadron 115′s Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions, became the public affairs officer for the carrier Reagan’s Gay, Lesbian and Supporting Sailors association, was named VFA-115′s Blue Jacket of the Year and earned his first Navy-Marine Corps Achievement Medal, a Navy release said.
But this wasn’t a one off event.
There were “cross dressing exercises at Arizona State’s Army ROTC during the Obama-Biden years:
“Blisters, sweat and perhaps a little bit of blood was the sight at the Sun Devil Fitness Complex on Monday, when the men and women of ASU Army ROTC braved the Arizona heat to run in fabulous (and some not-so-fabulous) heels to raise awareness of sexual assault… ASU Army ROTC program hosted the event, ‘Walk a Mile in Her Shoes,’ which consisted of students in the ROTC program wearing heels and running 1.26 miles as part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month.”
Additionally, “And let’s not forget that the military, just like other parts of the permanent Deep State, told its troops that MAGA stands for white supremacy. The rot runs very deep. Who cares about destroying unit cohesion by pitting against each other the different races within a remarkably well-segregated military? It’s more important to defeat Trump.”
Obama had 8 years to attempt to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.”
Unfortunately, it continues. The generals are carrying out a war again. This time it’s against Trump – and us.
