The United States military has many problems. It just lost a 20-year in Afghanistan that ended in a disastrous withdrawal and the deaths of 13 Marines. No one was punished except for a military officer who criticized his superiors’ incompetence. Last year, a sailor set fire to some cardboard boxes in an amphibious assault ship, which burned for days and had to be scrapped. It took incompetence throughout the chain of command to lose a capital ship that is supposed to survive bomb hits. The USS Connecticut, a powerful submarine that would be critical in any naval conflict in the Pacific, had to return to port because its crew crashed it into an underwater mountain. War games suggest that the United States would lose a fight against Russia and China.

There are morale problems. In 2020, at Fort Hood alone, 13 soldiers killed themselves, five were murdered, and 11 more died mysteriously. Suicides were up 16 percent in 2020 and four National Guard soldiers guarding the southern border killed themselves in the last two months.

There is organized crime in the services, which have lost explosives, mines, rockets, and other advanced weapons. Gang members steal fully automatic weapons. The Zetas, one of Mexico’s most notorious drug cartels, got their start when Mexican army commandos decided to switch jobs and smuggle drugs. With America turning increasingly Third World, we might see something similar here.

Many white advocates are veterans and though they are furious at “their” government, they respect the armed services. However, even that respect is fading. The Ronald Reagan Institute reported that the number of Americans with “a great deal of trust and confidence” in the military – still the most respected institution in the country – dropped from 70 percent in 2018 to 56 percent this year. Patriotism is at a record low, with even white conservatives turning their backs on the flag. Though the federal government favors blacks and Hispanics, whites are still the most patriotic. However, RamZPaul is right to say, “The Flag Wavers Are Gone” and the United States probably could not fight any war that required a draft.

At least some Mexicans in the armed forces have dual loyalty, at best. In 2019, a Marine of Haitian descent tried to use his (exaggerated) military record as part of a scheme to make himself Haiti’s new president. On October 15, 2008, four blacks tortured and murdered a white Marine officer and his black wife. Prosecutors downplayed any racial motivation, even though the criminals spray painted racial slurs at the scene, possibly to throw off police. The case got the attention it did only because the Polish government protested (the white officer was of Polish heritage), making the story harder to bury.

In 2011, the FBI reported that gangs had infiltrated every branch of the service. Media coverage about this has declined in recent years, though my ex-military contacts and current service members tell me gangs are still active. Three recent cases:

In summary, patriotism is declining, Gallup reports race relations are at the lowest point in 20 years, the armed services just lost our country’s longest war and would probably lose a conventional war.

America still has the best military equipment in the world, but could it count on citizens to serve in wartime? Thirty-one percent of young people are too fat to fight. While the federal government gives non-whites countless benefits and privileges, the media, schools, and the government itself teaches them their country is plagued by white supremacy. Those who benefit the most from the current regime are the least likely to defend it. The military has also lowered standards for special forces to increase “diversity,” so our warrior “elite” may become as mediocre as our political and educational “elite.”

The federal government probably could not survive a conventional military defeat. It would destroy the country or at least the government. And yet, the federal government and the military are determined to purge patriots when they need them most.

This has been going on since the beginning of the Biden Administration. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, a black man, told Senator Tom Cotton (a veteran) that “diversity, equity, and inclusion” are vital to the military. Soldiers get training in Critical Race Theory and the Navy put Ibram Kendi’s book How to Be an Antiracist on its reading list. On February 5, Secretary Austin ordered an effort to “address extremism across DoD,” including a review of what constitutes “extremism.”

A leaked PowerPoint presentation about the “Extremism and Insider Threat in the DoD” lists the Oath Keepers logo, the Three Percenters logo, and even the “OK” gesture as “symbols of extremism.” “Patriot Extremism” is first among the “domestic extremist ideologies posing the greatest risk to the DoD.” “This ideology holds that the US government has become corrupt, has overstepped its constitutional boundaries or is no longer capable of protecting the people against foreign threats,” the report explains.

Senior Advisor to the Secretary of Defense for Diversity and Inclusion Bishop Garrison is reportedly the head of the “Countering Extremism” task force. He says America has a “horrific history on race,” demands programs to counter the “nation-ending threat of white supremacy and white nationalist extremism,” and has said it will take the “totality of the national security apparatus to engage” what he calls “white supremacy.”

The media worry about white supremacist soldiers. These are news articles, not editorials.

About a week ago, we finally got an official “Report on Countering Extremist Activity Within the Department of Defense.” It starts with Secretary Austin: “We owe the men and women of the Department of Defense an environment free of extremist activities, and we owe our country a military that reflects the founding values of our democracy.” Just like social media companies, the services have set up an arbitrary, ever-shifting standard about what is and is not “extreme.” Moreover, the “founding values” of America are hardly today’s values.

The hunt for political dissidents is supposedly necessary because “insider threats” pose a danger to service members. “Following a number of high-profile insider threat attacks in the early 2010s, the Department of Defense built a program to detect, deter, and mitigate such threats . . . .” (page 3) The actual attacks were “the 2009 Fort Hood shooting, the 2013 Washington Navy Yard massacre, and the 2019 Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam and Pensacola Naval Air Station Shootings.” (13) Whites committed none of them.

Major Nidal Malik Hasan, who shot up Fort Hood, wasn’t shy about his “extremism;” he praised suicide bombers and said Muslims should “rise up.” Diversity policies that made it hard for supervisors to do anything about him. There was no need for a special program to “detect” this threat.

Aaron Alexis, a black man, killed 12 people in the 2013 Washington Navy Yard shooting. Despite his criminal record and an attempt by the Navy to revoke his security clearance, Mr. Alexis was able to stay on as a contractor. Would a white man with eight disciplinary citations, two arrests, and many mental health problems have got the same treatment?

Hispanic sailor Gabriel Romero committed the 2019 Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam shooting. He, too, had mental problems and disciplinary infractions. The Navy overlooked them. Was a task force necessary to seek out this potential shooter?

Finally, there’s the Pensacola Naval Air Station Shooting. Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani reportedly had contacts with al-Qaeda. In 2020, Attorney General William Barr said it was an act of terrorism motivated by “jihadist ideology.”

Thus, this report mentioned four recent specific attacks, none of which fit its current obsession with “white supremacy.” In all of them, there were plenty of reasons to investigate these men. It didn’t, perhaps because any white officer who pried might have been accused of racism.

The report cites the Biden Administration’s “National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism” as a key reason for a new approach. Robert Hampton analyzed it in June and said it was “a clear blueprint for expanding the national security state to suppress white Americans,” ignoring threats from radical Islam and black nationalists.

The new report defines “extremist activities” as “advocating or engaging in unlawful force, unlawful violence, or other illegal means to deprive individuals of their rights,” using such means to “achieve goals that are political, religious, discriminatory, or ideological in nature,” advocating the overthrow the government, or preaching other unlawful and unconstitutional measures. (page 10) This is generally straightforward, except that banning “ideological” goals would gut the whole campaign against “extremism.” However, the report forbids “advocating widespread unlawful discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex (including pregnancy), gender identity, or sexual orientation.” This could mean that any opposition to foreigners serving in sensitive security roles, opposition to mass immigration, opposition to women (even pregnant ones) serving in combat, affirming America’s historic white identity, or opposing transgenders in the military is now “extreme.”

Service members are banned from “active participation” in “extremist activities.” One of the report’s goals was to define “extremist activities” and “active participation,” but it’s a muddle. “Active participation” includes unlawful acts or violence, and you also can’t make “personal contributions through donations of any kind . . . to a group or organization that engages in extremist activities, with the intent to support those activities.” (page 10) But what groups are “extreme?” The report doesn’t say.

“[P]osting, liking, sharing, re-tweeting, or otherwise distributing content” that has the “intent to promote or otherwise endorse extremist activities” is also possible firing offenses and military personnel “are responsible for the content they publish on all personal and public Internet domains, including social media sites, blogs, websites and applications.” (page 11) Even looking at an “extremist” website on a government computer is a problem, but what is “extremist”? The report refuses to say. I would call Black Lives Matter extremist, but to the military, former president Donald Trump’s website may be extremist.

A training system will provide a “script” to tell service members “how to make reports to local FBI and police or sheriff’s departments” about “extremists.” (page 12) Those leaving the service will be trained to resist recruitment by “extremists.” Screening will also be increased to weed out those who have “membership in racially biased entities and other extremist groups.” (page 14) While the report refers to gangs, clearly reports about blacks funneling weapons to criminals in Chicago shows the military isn’t stopping them.

The report denounces “racially biased entities,” but the military’s celebration of various racial heritage months suggests such entities can only be white. Anyone who joins any pro-white group, donates to one, or even visits a website on a government computer might get in trouble, even if he breaks no laws. We get a hint, though, about what groups are banned: “A partnership with the FBI now allows recruiting commands and the Military Criminal Investigative Organizations (MCIOs) access to the FBI’s Law Enforcement Enterprise Portal (LEEP), offering a wide range of information on local gangs, white-supremacy and nationalist groups, gang signs, and extremist symbols and tattoos.” (page 14)

“A senior defense official” quoted by the Miami Herald said there is no list of banned groups because they change “so quickly and it can vary a lot region-to-region, state-by-state.” Of course, this also means “extremism” is anything bureaucrats say it is. A Confederate battle-flag tattoo would have been uncontroversial a decade ago, but today, the flag could end your career. Our national political police will make it up as they go along.

The report proposes a vast new system of training, “education,” awareness, and coordination to track extremist activity. Tips on contacting the FBI or other organizations will encourage snitching and paranoia. (page 16) The report doesn’t even mention “Islam,” “Muslim,” or “jihad,” though those were clearly relevant to at least two of the attacks that supposedly justify all this.

Regime Media will help combat “extremism.” In a story about the new rules, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby admitted that the Defense Department can’t monitor social media. Instead, it will rely on “various streams of reporting.” In other words, snoops and watchdog groups will have the job of turning in “extremist” soldiers. Because “extremism” is so broadly defined, just about anyone can be vulnerable. The hunt will be on for 19-year-old soldiers who clicked on the wrong link at Facebook.

This will be a catastrophe for morale. Every white person could be a target. It’s risky to cite pop culture, even when it is based on real events, but there is plenty of racially and religiously insensitive language from Marines in Generation Kill or from the soldiers in Restrepo, War, and Korengal. Listen to how veterans talk about battle. If American soldiers ever fight rather than study woke nonsense, they will sound “extreme.” If a white angers the wrong person or if a reporter wants to collect a scalp, the ax could fall.

The report says the new disciplinary system will “improve the readiness of our Total Force, ensuring that the United States continues to have the finest, most disciplined military in the world.” (page 18) This is foolishness. Soldiers train to kill enemies. In war, they will “otherize” the enemy. We will probably see classic anarcho-tyranny. The military can’t stop crime, arms trafficking, and violence on its own bases, but it will leap into action against lawful speech.

The military is supposed to defend America, but our media, government schools, and now even the top brass tell soldiers the country was founded on racism, which is embedded in its institutions. No other government in history has ever undermined its own foundations as ours does. The military is training soldiers to despise America.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Mark Milley told Rep. Matt Gaetz that he wanted to understand “white rage,” and defended studying antiracist ideas. He doesn’t understand that this will encourage black rage. Stoking non-white grievances won’t make men fight for their country. Whites with any self-respect will learn to remain silent lest they get a dishonorable discharge. What unit cohesion is possible when the system encourages messmates to spy on each other? After lecturing Congress on the benefits of Critical Race Theory, General Milley presided over defeat in Kabul. His career hasn’t suffered.

What place does a white or a conservative of any race have in today’s military? It celebrates nonwhites racial identity, homosexuality, and transgenderism. It now pays for sex-change surgery. The values that practically every American held until recently are now “extreme.” The new effort to control thought will hardly build esprit de corps among soldiers who need to believe they are fighting for something. It would be far more straightforward if the military just appointed commissars who waved copies of Ibram Kendi books – unless the enemy it is preparing to fight is white America.

Certainly, American military heroes have no place in today’s armed services. George Washington, Andrew Jackson, “Chesty” Puller, George Patton, and other legends would not be welcome in “Our Democracy.” The Washington Post recently took a shot at the “Greatest Generation” that won World War II because most servicemen had sensible views on race. The war itself has been recast as a struggle against our own racial and national identity, not foreign enemies. If World War II veterans had known what their “victory” would unleash, would they have left home?

They certainly couldn’t enlist today. That’s just as well. This report and its consequences will keep patriotic whites out, even if they wanted to join up, so patriots won’t be killed in the next war the Potomac Regime starts and loses.

There are reasons to join the military: to get training and financial help or to challenge yourself. However, you must trust no one and make sure to have no social media accounts. Keep your mouth shut, do what you are told, and keep an eye on non-whites. Even if you fight and die, your rulers may call you racist anyway. The military is an honorable calling, but don’t be deceived into thinking the military has anything to do with defending “our freedoms.”

If your goal is to defend America and Western Civilization, don’t join. The struggle is here. If there is a war, let those who have a stake in the Regime do the fighting. Journalists and affirmative-action Americans can defend Ukraine or Taiwan. It’s not our fight.

This report makes it clear that we are under occupation just as the Afghans were. That thing on the Potomac disgracing the name of Washington doesn’t represent the historic American nation. We aren’t obligated to save our rulers from their own stupidity. They don’t want us, anyway.

The United States military will probably never win another real war. I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

  1. The United States military will probably never win another real war. I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

    It’s a good thing, Greg. The United States faces no genuine military threat–all of it’s wars are now wars of choice and mostly of aggression. The invasion via the southern border is simply a failure of political will–a whiff of grapeshot is all that would be necessary to retrieve the situation; Unfortunately, Imperial Washington is insane enough to resort to nuclear weapons to retrieve a disastrous non-nuclear arms defeat.

    Your advice to white young men not to join Imperial Washington’s mercenaries is direct and to the point. No fighting that they do will do anything to advance their people’s interests.

  2. This article is narrow in scope. It conforms to disinformation schema. Give true facts add in an egregious interpretation that manipulates emotion and obfuscates the true problem.

    Fact: The United States military has many problems. It just lost a 20-year in Afghanistan that ended in a disastrous withdrawal and the deaths of 13 Marines.
    Disinfo interpretation: The war was winnable
    Obfuscated true problem: The U.S military took 20 years to leave an unwinnable war that should have not been initiated and was kept going by incompetent military and political elites

    Fact: Military lowers standards
    Disinfo interpretation: to increase diversity
    Obfuscated true problem: Americans are too drug addicted and fat(the article admits this) to meet previous standards and standards need to be lowered to maintain warm bodies in the military at levels to keep it from collapsing completely, also only the dregs of society and misguided join the U.S military anyone with a pulse and some intelligence finds other ways to pay for college or earn money.

    Fact: Military has a morale problem
    Disinfo interpretation: due to excessive crackdown and obsession on white supremacism
    Obfuscated true problem: Low morale in the military and society in general due to incompetence and dysfunction in all institutions due to elite capture and quarantining of institutions of media and power.

    A few of those suicides in those articles linked were of people of Hispanic last names, and the article on the Texas National Guard suicides went into depth as to why two soldiers committed suicide, morale was low because they were just wasting their time in the border and were forced to pass on good job opportunities or had to abandon family with disabilities to go on a pointless mission dictated by political elites for a stupid talking point.

    It is not military extremism guidelines, although it is a symptom and contributes to dysfunction, causing all the dysfunction in the military. It is the dysfunctional American people as reflected by their elites and institution.

    Public banking, policies to make housing more affordable and turn real estate into a public good rather than a vehicle for investment would do more to fix the problems of the United States than anything the author would propose. That is why this article has the flavor of disinfo, it focuses on the most sensationalistic aspect to trigger emotionally powerful responses, the easiest way which is the race and gender issues, and obfuscates the deep causes for the dysfunction.

    You should have seen the post-Vietnam War American Army. It was a joke, filled with potheads and methheads, high percentage of blacks and Mexicans in the enlisted ranks. Drug testing that started with Reagan stopped a complete collapse, but affirmative action promotions ruined the support side. Special Forces, combat arms stayed pretty Pale when I was in, I’ve heard there’s a substantial Hispanic minority in combat arms nowadays. The Left apparently wants to completely destroy combat readiness. It’s probably for the best in the long run, as long as we don’t face an invasion. The Funny thing is, if a guy like Tom Cotton was elected president, he could end all the affirmative action nonsense and leftist indoctrination in about five minutes. Trump couldn’t, or wouldn’t, do it. Jared kept promising him the black vote, the dream of country club republicans so maybe that was why he didn’t put someone decent in charge.

    Very kind of you to offer a solution to housing issues. The race issue, however, must be addressed. “Solutions” coming from the current system are designed to “promote fair housing” and address “equity “. In other words, assist non-whites only. If you don’t recognize this pattern affecting the prospects of our young, then you are the one engaging in “disinfo”.

  6. @Gerrymander'd

    Lamentably nowadays “fair housing” and “equity” means racial politics instead of genuine care and support for America’s struggling classes. What you say is correct and a result of giving up the ideological space to those who are more focused on race on the “woke” side.
    In order to implement policies that could lead to a change for the better it is necessary to focus and reclaim such policies from the dysfunctional “woke” organizations.

    In order for the race issue to be addressed the disenfranchised whites need affordable housing, without that they are just pawns of the elites to be used as a boogeyman while being a source of continued votes for the Conservative Inc hucksters. It is a fact of politics that those who live in the tension of poverty are incapable of participating in politics. If you want their participation, input and influence in politics they must be lifted out of poverty. As long as they remain powerless in politics, it will remain an emotion fueled spectacle.

    Your solution seems to be abandon the space of poverty elimination to the “woke” who will obviously not implement it and will heighten the racial spectacle. The true solution is to reclaim that space and advocate for poverty elimination measures. Anything else is a waste of time.

  7. @anyone with a brain

    All fair points well-articulated. Thank you for the reply. I wasn’t offering solutions, just indicating a preference to fight wokeism with racial honesty, not race neutrality. Looking forward to the day where we have the numbers to “reclaim the space”.

    I’m very surprised that Mr. Hood overlooked such an obvious issue. Doubtless it must have a negative effect on recruitment. Just one more reason for white boys not to talk to recruiters. Take the compulsory jab and risk myocarditis (or death) for an outfit where you’ll be a second class soldier, with less qualified blacks being promoted over you, and giving you orders. Not a good trade-off.

    Diversity Heretic got it right. It’s a good thing that the US hegemon won’t be able to win another (real) war. Of course, there could always be another false flag like Grenada, so the MIC can show off their new toys. Biden botched the Afghan exit, but at least he ended the war, over the objections of many of his advisors. Can’t say the same for President Warp Speed, who claimed he wanted to leave the Afghan cesspool, but buckled under to the Deep State, which returned the favor by impeaching him over a lousy phone call.

    “Lamentably nowadays “fair housing” and “equity” means racial politics instead of genuine care and support for America’s struggling classes.” – kudos for that. Well said.

    Consider some poor white blue collar worker, saddled with unpayable medical debts, losing his job to some third-world refugee, soon to be evicted – this person has white privilege! And the only way to fight white privilege is to despise this person and discriminate against him so he can never work again.

    And yet: consider the 600 mostly white billionaires that run this country. Even though they pretty much own everything, and make all the real decisions, they don’t have white privilege. We cannot discriminate against them in their access to government contracts, or near-zero interest loans, or subsidies, or bailouts, or anything else.

    Is this fair? Of course not. Fair is not the point. “Diversity” is the ruling class using race to distract us from class war. And our class is losing.

    So-called ‘conservatives’ need to wake up to the fact that even though Stalin was a monster and Marx wrong about nearly everything, Marx was right about one big thing: yes, the rich really will try to use their power to crush the rest of us into the mud. And the so-called ‘liberals’ need to wake up to the fact that they are working for the other side…

    What I mean by reclaim the space is websites like American Renaissance, Daily Stormer and VDARE should more articles and have more focus on poverty elimination for Whites and provide a forum for advocates and ideas of poverty elimination and help with organizing it in the grassroots. I do give credit to Andrew Anglin and Eric Striker, they are more attune to what I am suggesting, perhaps because they are younger than those writers who aren’t.

    There was a moment where something like that took sort of took place and it was with Andrew Yang and his UBI program.

    I don’t understand why these White advocates don’t care about getting young married White couples into affordable safe housing, and from there they could start businesses and form an independent class that doesn’t have to put up with rainbow and BLM flags at their workplace because the elites think it is relevant.
    One of the most amazing and underreported policies enacted was Tennessee making trade school free, that should be done on a national level.

    In general a criticism of modern politics is that they advocate and defend abstractions rather than people. The White advocates on this website forget that there are actually White people in need instead of an abstract White race that is mortally wounded when a statue gets taken down. If they had written more on the living struggling White people instead of the statues of White people, more would have been accomplished. I applaud Eric Striker for having written an interview with a truck driver.

    That criticism also applies to advocates of colored people, they care more about the narrative around Blacks shot by police than the actual security and safety of living Black people.

  12. I agree with Haxo’s overall point. This doesn’t contradict those raised by anyone with a brain about the underlying (and long-standing) reasons for the lowered standards and sorry state of military morale. The thing awb is missing is that the ruling elites view the terrible banking, housing and medical policies he mentions as another means to an end (them ruling eternally over an enslaved planet) rather than problems to be addressed. Their imposition of woke policies go hand-in-glove with all the rest. A competent, confident military could easily overthrow the Davos set. Imagine Soros, Schwab, Bezos, Gates and the others eliminated by drone strikes and special ops teams. It wouldn’t take very long to be rid of the parasite class altogether with even a relatively small military determined to overthrow them. Better to have a more-easily ruled mob of low intelligence who will obey any order given.

    This sooner the empire collapses, the sooner some countries will break free of its evil death-grip. The last thing any white male should do is join the military. Those who are in should get out. The overlords are more than able to take your pension and pay it out to foreigners, or simply steal it outright. It’s not as if there is any sort of viable legal system to prevent or address this. Those getting out should employ their knowledge and skills to accelerate the collapse of the evil empire. The einsatzgruppen Haxo warns of will be an utter failure once the empire collapses, for the world will no longer invest in the fake-money machine which keeps the empire going.

    And yet, the federal government and the military are determined to purge patriots when they need them most.

    On motivation
    Maybe they don’t need an army motivated to fight “for America”. Maybe they rather believe that they need an army to fight “for our values” in a globalist sense. The finishing touches on making the US army the muscle of globohomo, as it were. Capable for throwing its weight around the world and at home.

    An army and a police force and intel agencies all having not loyalty but contempt for the remaining heritage Americans can be interpreted as a big win for the hostile elites. The new breed of soldiers and cops and agents will be quite ready to do things unto the civilians of the US which they wouldn’t have in prior decades when they were all taken from a fairly homogenous pool, and not from the new various demographic clusters constantly pumped with anti-white propaganda.

    On soldier quality
    And who knows which country has what type of citizens to draft and what type of pro soldiers. That’s information from before the endless mandatory booster ride. Maybe a year from now it will turn out that the population of all major countries has undergone a “great levelling” in physical and cognitive ability via those jabs.

    Maybe tomorrow’s soldiers across the globe will all be IQ 90, taking fifty pills a day just to stay alive, and capable of very limited periods of physical exertion, before having to lie down for a bit. In that case, sure, drones and cruise missiles will indeed play a leading role.

    One can imagine a brawl between drunken platoons the members of which have been taking jabs every two-three months for two-three years straight. Stiffly flailing at each other for 30 seconds, before grabbing at their lower backs or going for their asthma inhalers and heart meds.

    More to the point, the wars we have fought for the last 30 years have been for Israel and Zionism.

    Obfuscated true problem: The U.S military took 20 years to leave an unwinnable war that should have not been initiated and was kept going by incompetent military and political elites

    Saying that more clearly:

    Obfuscated true problem. The U.S. military took 20 years to leave an unwinnable war that was initiated by Jewish activists (9/11) and was kept going by the same Jewish political elite (for Israeli strategic reasons and to introduce a US police state) employing their military industrial complex colaborators (themselves in it to loot the US taxpayer).

    That’s more understandable. Without the Israelis plus US Jewish activists (and their collaborators in the US administration and media) there would have been no 9/11 and no Afghanistan or Iraq wars. The US people would now have more freedom and saved Trillions of dollars.

    The root of the problem (inc. the anti-White activism) is Jewish Neo-Bolshevik style control the US. As Amy Wax says in this interview with Glenn Loury, Jews are the spearhead of the woke anti-White narrative.

    I doubt the U.S. military’s toys are any longer the best, as the author contends–witness the F-35 turkey, the littoral combat ships that are obsolete when built, and brand spankin’ new super duper aircraft carriers with features that barely function, if at all. They are, however, monstrously expensive, massively complex, and difficult to maintain. And who’s gonna operate and repair this stuff–some barely literate wokey-doke recruit commanded by Admiral Tranny B. Good?

    It’s just as well, as others have mentioned, since the Hegemon needs to give up the dream of world domination. But the neolibcon dimwits still seem to believe in fantasies of domination and winnable nuclear war and won’t hesitate to send these poor suckers into harm’s way and to endanger the rest of us.

    Implausible? Yes, in a sane world, but in one where the Hegemon has Ukraine on the brain and is run by Tel Aviv, which keeps ratcheting up threats to attack Iran, I’d say all bets are off.

    I still remember grade school duck and cover drills, clocking how fast we could run home from school, the eerie pall of doom hanging over the neighborhood during the Cuban Missile Crisis, and my mother consoling the wife of a military officer, gone, incommunicado for two days, who left in the middle of the night for the mountaintop radar domes.

    We asked our father, a veteran of two wars, about preparing the basement against nuclear fallout. He shook his head no, reminded us that we were surrounded by a couple of major military installations and vital industrial plants, and said if the sirens sounded we’d set out the lawn chairs in the back yard, watch the show, and wait for the shock wave.

    A leaked PowerPoint presentation about the “Extremism and Insider Threat in the DoD” lists the Oath Keepers logo, the Three Percenters logo, and even the “OK” gesture as “symbols of extremism.” “Patriot Extremism” is first among the “domestic extremist ideologies posing the greatest risk to the DoD.” “This ideology holds that the US government has become corrupt, has overstepped its constitutional boundaries or is no longer capable of protecting the people against foreign threats,” the report explains.

    There are almost no authentic White supremacist problems in the US Military, so the method actors running the Pentagon have to make up a conspiracy, from scripts written by ((Jews))/Zionists. These are “actors” and their ((producers)).

    Senior Advisor to the Secretary of Defense for Diversity and Inclusion Bishop Garrison is reportedly the head of the “Countering Extremism” task force. He says America has a “horrific history on race,” demands programs to counter the “nation-ending threat of white supremacy and white nationalist extremism,” and has said it will take the “totality of the national security apparatus to engage” what he calls “white supremacy.”

    ((Jews))/Zionists have “horrific history on race” as Transatlantic slavers and brokers, and today they’re continuing that ((Jewish)) conspiracy via Globalism, which will make slaves of us all. What do the ((producers)) do? Hire method actors and pay them to shill for the ((Jews)) and project their own Zionists crimes onto “White supremacists,” who are guilty of nothing so much as being White.

    Whites fought and died freeing the slaves from Zionists. For their trouble, their descendants are being smeared as “White supremacists” by Zionists and their stooges. Lincoln should have proceeded with his plans to repatriate the Africans. He should have sent the ((Jews)) and their stooges with them. He didn’t, and this is what we’re dealing with today.

    But denying or disparaging America’s founding as a white nation is not extreme and is even encouraged by Jewish and non-jewish elites.

  77. The US military is nothing but a Murder Incorporated, terrorising humanity for US corporations. In the end, very near now, their psychopathic aggression, blood-lust and self-delusion will lead to a war with a real adversary, China, Russia or, perhaps Iran, where they will be flogged, then use nukes to show how pissed they are, and we’ll all be toast. Quite inevitable, really-coming for 200 years, just awaiting the technological means. The basic psychopathy has always been there.

  78. @anyone with a brain

    The fanatic resistance to ameliorating social pathologies in the USA, in the interests of social peace and amity, is proof of that basic Rightwing psychopathology-the fear and hatred of others. Societies dominated by Rightists must always end up collapsing into poverty and misery, as long as State policing power remains potent, or civil war and devastation once it no longer does so. Meanwhile, China, the ‘autocracy’ has ended dire poverty and raised more of its people out of want than any other State in history. Global parasite elites, of course, identify with the US and ‘democrazy’, whereas ordinary, non-psychopathic, peoples everywhere would prefer the Chinese model.

A former combat vet, unlike either Trump or Biden who both dodged the draft, he is brave enough to at least try. Trump surrounded himself with liberals and traitors who stopped him at every turn. Cotton seems experienced enough not to let that happen. As a former military man, you can bet a Lloyd Austin or a General Milley or a Colonel Vindman won’t be handling defense.

    The Romans might have been better off without the Praetorian guard; they were political mercenaries who fought for whoever offered them the best deal in any grab for the throne.

    But then again, the Legions did much the same thing when there was a power struggle. Fighting “for Rome” typically came down to fighting for whichever general had earned their loyalty (and offered them money and land).

    As long as the US remained in the field, the Taliban was stuck in the bush, unable to hold any place of importance. Once the Trump administration decided to pull out and stopped fighting, the Taliban began making gains. Only when the Biden administration decided to throw its hands in the air and run for the exit, did the Taliban take over. The US could’ve stayed there forever, keeping the Taliban hiding in the bush if it had wanted.

    The ZOG/Fed Ponzi scheme can buy all the actors it needs, and good method actors become the role, and even convince themselves they’re not acting. But they are.

    At the height of the Cold War it was assumed that a Warsaw Pact (WP) assault would over run Western Europe to the Channel in a matter of weeks. That was with a preponderance of NATO forces in Germany BUT excluded any participation by black troops who said they would not fight a war for the White Man.

    US studies indicated that such an assault would sweep around the Cities which would remain as strong points and effectively be a thorn in the side of the Pact, a base for undermining the WP occupation and a spring board for counter attacks. This was soon exposed as a pipe dream and heaved onto the trash heap when a Soviet manual on street fighting came out based on their experience in the Battle of Stalingrad and Berlin. What that meant was that the Cities would either be swallowed up in the initial assault or be reduced to rubble by WP forces specially trained in Urban Warfare.

    That was then and the situation is worse now. Back around 1973 I noticed that the Marine Corps had established a recruiting depot in Harlem. That is, the military were prepared to induct the dregs of society in the hope that the DIs could do something with them. However, you cannot make a silk purse from a hog’s arse.

    According to Suetonius (The Twelve Caesars), the Roman Emperors starting with Augustus and ending with Galba hired on their own personal Germanic guards (the Numerus Batavorum) for the simple reason that none of them trusted the Praetorian guards…….and for good reason as very few emperors died of natural causes. Caligula was actually murdered by Cassius Chaerea, head of the Praetorian Guard, and his fellow guard officers at the Palatine Games. The German guards mostly spoke little latin, were recruited from various unconquered tribes to the north, and were fiercely loyal to the emperor who paid them handsomely. Following the murder of Nero, his German guard went on a beserker killing spree whacking any member of the Roman elite they came across, and could only be tamed with massive bribes to get them to stand down. The next emperor, Galba (68 to 69 ce), disbanded The German guard and had to bribe them to return to their tribes beyond the frontier. Galba only reigned for 6 months before he was murdered by his successor, Otho, proving disbanding the Germanic guards was a fatal error. Hope this brief history is of interest to someone……..

    Of course it is important to avoid casualties; the problem is the incentive structure:
    You wanna be promoted you better produce bodies, but there is absolutely no
    disincentive to killing the wrong ones (the decisive point), only every
    incentive to cover it up.

    – Napalm was developed towards the end of WWII as an anti-tank weapon;
    in Korea it became, for lack of tanks, the go-to against field fortifications, massed
    soft targets and residential areas. That pattern was continued in Vietnam i.e.
    they threw it at everything. It was used for clearing fields of fire along
    the major roads (followed by Rome ploughs) but wasn´t terribly efficient against
    the jungle herself.

    But that´s still not what I meant …
    – The Wehrmacht hit upon hard times in the Balkans and the Ukraine largely
    because they refused to listen to the Austrians (who had plenty of area experience
    but were looked down upon – “Kamerad Schnürschuh“).
    In Vietnam the area experts (“ethnologue spooks”) and later the Special Forces (CIA)
    were cut out of the loop as soon as Westmoreland arrived.
    In Afghanistan the low point was US death squads donning German uniforms
    “to reduce their casualties” (which it did somewhat, while laying waste to the entire German civic effort; this is idiocy . While they no doubt patted each other on the back over their brilliance they should have been executed.)
    See, your ability to selflessly bomb a defenseless people flat (rah, rah) then, when
    they are appropriately prostrate, like Prometheus bring them the Light of womxyn´s
    Rites and Coca-Cola means nothing – if you create more enemies than you dispatch
    you are losing.
    The heavily-armed otherwise-unemployable are worse than useless in what is,
    in essence, a police action. What you need is mixed foot patrols 1 engineer/sniper (US),
    1 radioman/forward observer (US), 1 civic liaison (AfGov or NGO), 1 police (Afghan);
    other than that heavy engineer, military police and sniper units and precious little else.

The history is very readable, breezy, filled with wit and salacious asides. Covers the fall of the Roman Republic and the rise of the autocratic Caesars. The Graves translation is the basis for his two popular novels, I Claudius and Claudius the God. Claudius was raised as the family idiot as he was deformed and stuttered. The Senators always referred to him jokingly as Cl…Cl….Claudius. Following the murder of Caligula, Claudius was made Emperor by the Praetorian Guards as kind of a joke on the elites. Unbelievably, he made quite a good Emperor whom the Roman public was very fond of. According to Suetonius, Claudius is thought to have been poisoned by his ambitious wife, Agrippina, who wanted her son Nero by a previous husband to inherit the throne. Claudius had a favorite fig tree so Agrippina hid the poison in a low hanging fruit to avoid the food taster. Cunning bitch. Think of Agrippina as kind of a latter day Hillary.

    – Sorry I cannot offer a single source; no one both writes from the POV of a

    (rt.com, sputniknews.com, anti-empire.com) and learn to read between the lines.

    With the proviso the test of a weapon is pitting it against a peer opponent,
    you can have my two bit:
    – The F-35 is not a “turkey”, it is the proverbial “a camel is a race horse that was designed
    by a committee”. Historically jacks-of-all-trades have never shone in any one rôle.
    – As a result the F-35 is so overweight/underpowered the Air Force was forced to admit it is easily outflown by the MiG-21 (not a typo – the one from 1959).
    – Previous examples of relying on rockets at the expense of cannon were the
    F-86A (discontinued after first contact with MiG-15 in Korea) and the F-106
    (relegated to photo reconnaissance in Vietnam). The F-35 does have a cannon but it
    doesn´t work, not good in the ground attack rôle (but retractable rockets! Think
    about how cool!).
    – The Air Force dare not retire the A-10 Warthog (that the F-35 was supposed to
    replace) – despite mounting doubts about its survivability – because the 35´s flight readiness is abysmal (10-25x the maintenance per
    flight hour – which should improve somewhat with service life) and it´s not very good
    at ground attack either.
    – The F-117 (which everyone agreed had the aerodynamic qualities of a toilet seat)
    has seen limited reactivation.
    – The fabled radar of the 35 I know little about, but combined with the front
    radar cross-section it means it is intended as intruder, a rôle few countries have real
    use for (maybe if Israel wants to bomb Bushehr, but it would be too slow to make
    it out alive). The last dedicated intruder the Air Force was insanely proud of was
    the F-104 Starfighter (also unceremoniously dumped on the “allies” and killing more
    German pilots than anything else since WWII).
    Item, the stealth fails against modern AWACS (moving target indicator) and
    the newer Russian ground radars (multiple wavelength).
    – Couple that with the price tag (and don´t forget to triple it).

    The political machloikes, bribes and kickbacks would no doubt fill a book too
    (inevitable with such sums) but there be better sources for that 😉

    As a person who served 10 years in the USAF, no combat if that even matters. What I’ve seen in still working on and around bases is that the US military has sold the idea of serving as a career first, and defense of the nation a distant second. All I ever hear is “I’m going to get my degree and get out.” And when the deployments start and the real possibility of seeing actual combat becomes a reality the crying about knee and back problems, not to mention the large increase in pregnancies become ever apparent.

    Women should NEVER be allowed to serve in any role where frontline combat is a possibility, as it causes way too much angst with their male counterparts. (This is what I’ve heard from actual male combat vets) Somehow the value of a man’s life seems to take a backseat to a woman’s safety. I’ve said this and I don’t give a shit who it pisses off, when a woman gets pregnant and obviously is no longer world wide deployable, as soon as the child is born and no issues of health are concerned they need to be discharged. I’ve seen multiple men in my experience booted for simply being deemed “not worldwide deployable” and sent back home to mama. Anyone wondering why we’d get our asses handed to us in a real war need look no further than the number of split tails taking up combat slots, in all of the branches.

    Claudius used to stay on at the Games during the meal break, when criminals were executed by wild animals. That was considered poor sport, and watching it in bad taste.

    “Public banking, policies to make housing more affordable and turn real estate into a public good rather than a vehicle for investment would do more to fix the problems of the United States than anything the author would propose.”

    Destroying “public” “banking” and crucifying every last banker and financialist in the USA would result in the problem being fixed in short order.

    “Public” “banking” is never, ever going to turn to policies to make housing more affordable, because housing bubbles and housing being unaffordable are direct and inevitable results of the housing market being financialized, which profits the “public” “bankers”.

    If you say that Israel and Zionism control the USA and are destroying it, and yet they are not your concerns, there are only a few logical interpretations of your words:
    #1: You’re dumb as a brick.
    #2: You’re dishonest as hell.
    #3: You either don’t live in the USA or ought not to.

    The logic is very simple. If X controls Y, X is responsible for whatever happens to Y. So you can either argue that Israel/Zionism do not in fact control the USA, or you can argue that they are responsible for the problems, there are no other possibilities.

    I suspect you are in category #3. You live in the USA and are either lazy, or a coward, or both, unwilling to help fight the fight that most needs fought.

    If the Israel lobby is a problem and you can’t get around it because of a corrupt electoral system, the solution isn’t to keep using the corrupt electoral system, it’s to eliminate the system and replace it with something that will work.

  126. Let me tell you the essence of war. The essence of war is choking the enemy supply lines until they cannot fight, while protecting yours.

    Now let me be clear about what supply lines are: they’re the sourcing mechanisms for anything necessary to fight. The materials necessary to fight include military equipment, but they also include soldiers. However, more than just materials are necessary to fight. Information and morale are also necessary and are also supply lines that can be cut. An enemy unwilling to fight is an enemy unable to fight.

    Now let’s look at Vietnam, Korea, and Afghanistan. In Vietnam and Korea, we were not allowed to prosecute because of political f*****ry. You can blame either end or both – that we shouldn’t have been there in the first place, and if we were we should have been willing to burn it all down. We lost because the politicians never intended to win.

    With Afghanistan it’s much the same, but the problem is even worse: we weren’t there for a well defined reason to begin with. We were there because of intentionally dishonest buzzwords like “terrorism” and “extremism” and “fundamentalism” and “democracy”. We were never there in the first place to win a war, we were there for political f*****ry bath-house games. So of course we “lost”, here meaning that we finally stopped f***ing around and pulled out.
