A military run by whiners

I have come to the conclusion that our military under its current leadership no longer is worthy of record appropriations. I made my case in today's Highlights of the News.

My points are simple. A large military budget allows weak commanders-in-chief such as Obama and Biden to prove their manhood through war. Bombing Libya into the stone age unleashed a civil war in that country and a million or so refugees upon Europe.

My second point is our political leaders are so beholden to Red China that we will never use it to fight Red China, which is our top adversary.

Finally, the military now is dedicated to wokeness. I prefer an army where the only color is green and the flag is the American one, not a rainbow one.

The people running the military today are not up to the task. They proved it by whining to the Washington Post about Congress using the $858 billion defense budget to override the military's covid shot mandate.

The Post is so concerned that it took down its paywall to make the military whine available to everyone, even we rubes in the boondocks.

The story said, "The Biden administration fumed Wednesday at the near-certainty that Congress will strip away the Defense Department’s requirement that all military personnel be vaccinated against the coronavirus, upending a politically divisive policy that has led to the dismissal of nearly 8,500 service members and numerous lawsuits disputing its fairness."

Fumed!

The generals and admirals cannot handle it. What do they say about orders? Before you can give them you have to learn how to take them.

These boys and girls cannot take orders.

The story said, "The looming reversal — spurred by Republicans who had threatened to block passage of the $858 billion spending bill if the mandate wasn’t struck down — creates a rat’s nest for the Pentagon. Commanders whose job it was to enforce the mandate will face the onerous task of assessing whether — and how — to allow back into uniform those already separated from the military for refusing to follow orders. Managing overseas deployments, especially in countries that require visitors to be vaccinated, will create burdensome logistical headaches as well, officials said."

Oh no, the people running the military will have to navigate local rules and laws in nearly 200 nations -- something they have only been doing since 1787 or so.

The story pointed out that the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt was quarantined in spring 2020 after more than 1,200 sailors in a crew of about 4,800 contracted covid. One sailor died.

The story also said, "A Navy officer with more than 2,000 sailors under his command recalled standing before his entire crew and explaining why it was not only important to get vaccinated but essential to the Navy’s mission readiness."

The poor guy whined to the Post, "I look like a clown now. What happens when the next [unpopular directive] comes along, whether for vaccines or something else? I’ve lost my credibility to say ‘Do this’ when they know they can probably wait me out."

Something tells me he looked like a clown long before covid. In fact, they all do.

He also said, "I have been completely undercut in trying to uphold the standards dictated to me from on high. My sailors will have a hard time trusting me in the future when I say that some controversial policy must be complied with."

George Washington led an army to victory against the most powerful army on Earth in the middle of a smallpox epidemic. Smallpox killed one-third of those infected.

Bozo the Boson could not handle a disease that killed 1 in 1,200 of those infected.

As for readiness, that is on the commanders not the covid shot.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin had no problem ordering a stand down upon taking command for 60 days to deal with racism. The Army is so racist that Austin became a general and the first black defense secretary.

If you want $858 billion from taxpayers, you have to do what their representatives in Congress tell you to do. The people with stars on their shoulders should by now know this. Instead they whine.

    2. So.

      Flush all true Americans out of our military forces.

      Replace with human gerbils.

      Where have all the true Americans gone?

      Why, back to civilian life.

      Taking with them all that they have learned.

  6. "...that killed 1 in 1,200 of those infected."?

    The way Bad China Flu infections and deaths have been managed, modified, changed to fit the narrative, that one death could have been a heart attack or drowning but if he/she tested positive, or knew anyone who had tested positive for the Bad China Flu, his/her death was probably listed as Covid.

    1. It’s worse. Gunshot to head listed as Covid mortality if positive. All being corrected somewhat now as all alarmist numbers are trending down.

    2. I would assume the military is lying about deaths from the vaccine. Given their numbers - and the numbers of younger men who appear to be most at risk of developing adverse reactions - it should be quite a number. I think a bunch of people who mandated the shot should be sued - and jailed. And perhaps hung.

    3. And they still managed to come up with only 1 death. That's 0.083% fatality rate. So scary!

    4. Agree that death was something else. They would list as COVID if positive even suicide to further their agenda and narrative. We won’t know but RIP sailor

    5. Thus, the relentless suppressions of the many truths about the eu flu emerge to be seen by any who will see.

      The formerly normal expectations that science, scientists, doctors, etc., are reliably striving to help, has now bern revealed to be the re-lie-abilty it has become.

      Ever hear a doctor say, if only you'd come to us sooner.....?

      Now, what helpful purpose does that equate to?

      Only to attempt to cover their own ass.

      Anyone without experiencing symptoms who rushed to be tested is an idiot, then and now.

      All authentic doctors know to first do no harm.


      When you do not know how to help, you do nothing.

      When you know how to cautiously treat the symptoms, you do so, very carefully.

      Until you are honestly confident that you do know how to treat the disease, by confidently knowing the cause of the disease, you can then proceed to do so.

      All with the informed consent of the patient.


      New century, old liars' propensity.

    6. BlackJEM, the military took the DEERs version of the adverse reactions down and 'cleaned' it. The adverse reactions were high and it was early in the 'vaccine' deployment. Articles lasted about 1 - 2 days even on conservative sites. That is probably why you see so many in the military fighting the vaccines. They probably knew someone who dropped dead from it. It is not a vaccine and not even palliative care at this point. HCL and Ivermectin cleared up everyone dying in India, and cant be prescribed here due to the FDA. The FDA who had them cancel a study for one of the drugs due to kidney and liver failure, actually made it part of their hospital treatment plan for covid.

      It turned into a scam when hospitals could get a lot more money for anyone with covid or dying from covid, even if the bullet, tree or car crash actually killed them first.

  8. To the officer whining about the reversal of the vax requirement who said: "I look like a clown now" --

    You and everyone in command in the US military who complied like sheep with the unconstitutional, medically unsupported jabs have been clowns since the day the "order" was issued.

    You swore a duty to uphold the Constitution, NOT to blindly obey Joe Biden, Lloyd Austin, Anthony Fauci and the CDC's Wallensky.

    You have failed. You have lost our respect. You are and always will be clowns for what you have done to compromise our military readiness.

    3. A lot of us knew early, very early what the case fatality rate and who was at risk. That cruise ship early pandemic was a pretty good controlled experiment. Risk was limited to chronically ill 50+ with several comordities and what we call old, old, 80+. Case fatality rate less than flu, which is a real danger to old and young alike. So vaccinate old, old and leave kids and healthy military alone.

  13. The vax mandates made everyone who was responsible for compliance look like clowns. And rightly so. Something that so obviously violates the Nuremberg code about forced medical experimentation should have been immediately understood as an unlawful order.

    1. Yeah I don't know why this wasn't pushed more. Clearly against Nuremberg code. And it was obvious by summer 2020 that covid wasn't deadly to those of military age (screw the obese generals)... and it was pretty obvious by early 2022 that the vaccine was very dangerous!

  16. The commander already burned his credibility to command the souls of his men and women.

    Observation of a man who commanded troops in a very contentious war:

    "Of course, the soldier must be trained to obedience, and should be "content with his wages;" but whoever has commanded an army in the field knows the difference between a willing, contented mass of men, and one that feels a cause of grievance. There is a soul to an army as well as to the individual man, and no general can accomplish the full work of his army unless he commands the soul of his men, as well as their bodies and legs."

    Memoir of General William T. Sherman, Vol II, pg 387

  17. It's "Historic First" Black Defense Secretary.

    Just like the "Historic First" Black, Gay Female press secretary. Just like "Historic First" judge Jackson. Just like "Historic First!" Transportation Secretary and "Historic First" cross dressing Assistant Secretary of Health or the "Historic First" cross dressing, bag stealing US Energy Department official.

    Competence is secondary to "Historic First!" status and has been under the last two democrat administrations.

  18. Late to this one, but 2 cents:
    Austin, Milley, et al had not enough balls between them to stand up to Biden (& idiot puppet masters?) regarding Afghanistan or resign.
    Instead, we got a long, long reverberating debacle, and 13 dead military heros.
    They don't deserve more money.
