We’ve all seen how the left likes to trot out ‘heroes’ like Col Vindeman so that someone wearing a uniform can voice their ideas to make them sound more credible.
If the left insists we listen to someone like him out of deference to his service, how much more should THEY have to hear what the guy whose personal courage and action put an end to Public Enemy Number One: Osama Bin Laden?
The left didn’t miss any opportunity in leveraging his courage so they could elevate Obama as The President Who Bagged The World’s Biggest Bad Guy. Maybe they owe it to O’Neill to hear what he has to say about the changes they have since made to his beloved Navy.
Robert J. O’Neill, who served on SEAL TEAM 6, has a thing or two to say about the new face of digital recruiting for the Navy.
We can’t help but notice that the Navy’s new face of digital recruiting, Yeoman 2nd Class Joshua Kelley, whose stage name is Harpy Daniels, released videos with the TikTok watermark on it.
TikTok. Yep, that would be the same app that is forbidden by law on many government-issued phones because it is little more than a glorified Chinese Spyware app.
Joshua ‘Harpy Daniels’ Kelly is ‘non-binary’. In a recruitment video, he shows himself in uniform and then in drag. Because of course. We are, after all, living through Biden’s remaking of America.
To say O’Neill was unimpressed would be an understatement.
Navy spokeswoman Lt. Alyson Hands said the digital ambassador program was a pilot initiative designed “to reach a wide range of potential candidates as the Navy navigates the most challenging recruiting environment it has faced since the start of the all-volunteer force.”
The pilot program, she added, “has concluded.”
“We are evaluating the program and how it will exist in the future,” the lieutenant said. –WashingtonTimes
Most ‘challenging’ recruitment environment? It was doing fine just a few short years ago. What could *possibly* account for the sudden change in recruitment?
Maybe there is a connection to how this administration has fired people left and right: over the COVID jab, over denouncing Communism, over criticizing the ClusterF**k that was Afghanistan.
Maybe the drop-off in recruitment has something to do with the way Biden’s administration has gutted our armory to arm Ukraine while force-feeding subordinates all of the left’s favorite lines about gender and ‘white rage’. Explicitly political views that subordinates were told to smile and accept … or else.
Gee, what could *possibly* go wrong with a strategy that prioritizes the sexual oddities of activists over creating and maintaining a military force so overwhelmingly lethal that our enemies think twice before engaging us?
“We know through history that the way to deter is to have a very, very strong, capable, multi-domain military, and ensure that your opponent knows that you have that capability, that that capability is overwhelming, knows that you have the will to use it, and you’ve communicated that to them,” he said.
The task is to ensure that the U.S. military becomes “not only just a little bit better, but a lot better, it’s overwhelmingly better than the Chinese military — to make sure that they know it and that we have the will to use it in the event of a crisis,” [Gen. Milley] said. –Washinton Examiner
It’s not as if China is cranking out new ships at a rate that equals some modern nation’s entire fleets every single year, is it?
But at least there isn’t any likelihood of a future where there will be open hostilities between our countries, right?
“For nearly 40 years, I have been going to China,” Dalio wrote. “That has put me in the privileged and awkward position of being deeply attached to the two greatest powers in the world, which are on the brink of going to war with each other.”
The U.S. and China are nearing war because of one main problem: communication, Dalio said. The two countries are using sanctions and their militaries to ultimately push the other to cross the “red line” of launching an actual war.
If the U.S. and China continue to instigate one another, it will “irrevocably push them over the brink into some type of war” and hurt the world order, he added. — Fortune
It took a good hard slap in the face from the public before the makers of Bud Light realized that they were offending the people whose money they relied on.
It may take a similar reality slap for the military to realize that forcing the effete sensibilities of the coastal elite down the throats of a volunteer military that largely draws its members from traditionalist red states is the recruiting equivalent of New Coke or, more accurately, Bud Light’s failed Dylan Mulvaney experiment.
O’Neill may be the most prominent of the people to call you out on your bullsh*t. But he is not alone.
John The Baptist: A Rude Awakening Precedes A Great Awakening.
This timely little tome chronicles the politically incorrect ministry of one of God’s most effective wildmen, John the Baptist, who prepared the way for Christ’s ministry.
The abrasive message of repentance John preached 2000 years ago is still confrontational and offensive today — but it is also life-changing.
In our putrid, worldly culture that has turned away from God, this book is a must-read for every Christian.
Available in paperback for those of you who like the feel of the pages in your hot, little hands, on Kindle to keep it right at your fingertips, and as an epic Audiobook.
