USAFA Class of 2022 cadet and COVID-vaccine objector Nathan Suess

A year ago this month, a comparison of military recruitment ads from China, Russia and the U.S. went viral on social media. Our foreign competitors wooed their potential enlistees with muscular appeals to national pride and protection of the traditional nuclear family. A U.S. Army promotional campaign, by contrast, featured a pastel-hued cartoon depiction of a female soldier named “Emma” who marched in a gay pride parade with her two mothers and became a soldier to “shatter some stereotypes.”

Wokeness is a terminal cancer in our armed forces, eroding the foundational bones of its honor-bound institutions and ravaging the core values of generations of America’s frontline fighters. Integrity, honor, personal courage, excellence and commitment to truth have been subjugated to the progressive false gods of diversity, equity and inclusion. Who needs outside threats to our troops when the most lethal saboteurs are embedded inside the bowels of our own Pentagon and service academies?

“Diversity,” of course, is exclusively defined by selective skin color and politically correct pronouns. “Equity” is a farce if you are white, male, Christian and patriotic. “Inclusion” is a grand illusion. Nowhere are these toxic realities more clearly illustrated than in the American military bureaucracy’s vindictive witch hunt against our best and brightest soldiers, Marines, sailors, airmen and Coasties who have resisted the COVID-19 jab.

“I’m frustrated,” Air Force Academy cadet Nathan Suess told me on Monday in Colorado Springs, Colorado, as he braced for punishment and retaliation during graduation week. The 21-year-old civil engineering major is one of four seniors who objected to the COVID-19 vaccine because of their deeply-held religious beliefs — as well as on irrefutable scientific and legal grounds. Suess quietly filed his religious exemption request last fall as a “devout follower of God,” citing aborted fetal cell lines used to develop the shots; the low mortality rate among young, healthy active-duty personnel; more than 600,000 adverse vaccine reactions reported to the government, including permanent heart damage among young men; and the illegality of mandating experimental vaccines not fully approved by the Food and Drug Administration and undermining informed consent (as determined by courts that ordered the suspension of the military’s anthrax vaccine mandate in 2004).

“I could not dirty my conscience” by obeying an unlawful order undergirded by “deception and dishonesty,” Suess told me.

Suess and his fellow objectors were left in the dark about their fate until last week, when the Academy publicly outed and humiliated the quartet — threatening to force them to reimburse their tax-subsidized tuition (upwards of \$200,000) and denying them military commissions. The Air Force Academy, increasingly infiltrated by radical leftists who require critical race theory brainwashing and subsidize pagan, witch and Wiccan worship on campus, is the only one of the military academies imposing such draconian penalties.

ORDER IT NOW

The self-described “Navy brat” from a family with three generations of veterans believes “critical thinking is imperative for officers.” Joining the Air Force was Suess’ “biggest high school goal.” But he now feels “ostracized” and betrayed by leaders who have “made everything up on the spot” in defense of sham science and unconstitutional orders. “This is tyranny at its finest,” he lamented as he packed his bags this past weekend, but he vows to fight it on behalf of other peers.

“We do not swear an oath to obey our leaders,” Suess declared defiantly. “The Constitution always comes before military mandates.”

Suess is not alone. As a federal judge in Texas ruled in January in halting punishment for 35 Navy special ops members who refused the COVID-19 shots, “There is no military exclusion from our Constitution … There is no COVID-19 exception to the First Amendment.” And just this week, a secretive Navy Administrative Board ruled unanimously that LT. Col. Bill Moseley, a Navy weapons specialist with 22 years of active-duty service, was not guilty of “misconduct” for refusing to obey a direct order to submit to the COVID-19 jab because of his religious objections.

Conveniently, the full ruling is hidden by a convoluted military process that only discloses results when dissenters’ challenges fail. But Moseley’s attorney, R. Davis Younts (who himself served 12 years active-duty in the Air Force and in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps), was able to tell me this week that “it was very clear that the board had legitimate concerns about the lawfulness of the order and whether the vaccine mandate was reasonably necessary to accomplish” the Navy’s mission. “We are supposed to be free-thinking and use our discretion. We are legally bound to challenge unlawful orders.”

Younts, a lieutenant colonel in the Air Force reserves, is now defending more than 50 military clients fighting to protect their faith. He has filed his own religious exemption request from the COVID-19 shots as well. “This is a very personal fight for me,” he revealed, and “it’s not just about the vaccine … It’s a very difficult time in the military today for people of Christian faith who hold to Biblical teachings.”

In a sane and self-respecting sovereign nation, wise, brave, God-fearing, independent-minded warriors like USAFA cadet Nathan Suess, Navy Lt. Col. Bill Moseley and military defense lawyer R. Davis Younts would be celebrated and promoted, not spurned.

But in woke, broke America, our military no longer liberates the oppressed. It oppresses the liberated. And all our enemies laugh mightily at our self-inflicted civilizational wounds.

  1. “In a sane and self-respecting [civilized society], wise, brave, God-fearing, independent-minded warriors” would never sign up to do Caesar’s maiming, murdering, and shocking and aweing. They would not sully their souls.

    “[O]ur military no longer liberates the oppressed.” Tell that to the hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of civilians assaulted, battered, beaten, bombed, fire-bombed, gassed, maimed, murdered, poisoned, and raped by “our military” throughout the reign of the GAE.

    Stop with the civic normie de rigueur military idolization already.

    But we’re gonna fight the Russians. In the snow. And at the same time find off an amphibious landing on the other side of the world.

  3. Ms Malkin embraces what must be a failed military. The military does not work when soldiers disobey orders and run to court seeking assistance from a judge in their continued disobedience to orders. You don’t negotiate compromise with superior officers. You don’t get a judge to countermand orders. Every soldier who refused a covid vaccine should be courtmartialed, spend time in military prison, be discharged dishonorably, and forced to repay their entire cost of training. Imagine if soldiers all started to say “thou shalt not kill” when ordered to shoot the enemy? It does not work.

    In addition to no human being forced to take an unapproved (some say toxic) innoculation, Nurenberg also established that you are required to disobey an unlawful order.

    Note that these soldiers and sailors are requesting that they not be forced to obey an unconstitutional (unlawful?) order only. Seeing that can only come from the judicial branch of government, your argument is simply that you do not like that anyone would not follow orders of any kind, no matter what. I think that was tried once before in history if I am not mistaken.

    LOL, yes in the Chinese and Russian military but in the West it is groupthink that is a prerequisite for any power, prestige or responsibility in all spheres of life be it, commerce, military, academia or government.

  7. Needing a “religious exemption” to avoid taking the Clot Shot is a bunch of hooey. No one, whether in the military or not, should be required to take the jab, nor be forced to defend their decision based on Biblical principles.

    Why is Ms. Malkin only defending Christian airmen? Are those who don’t file religious exemptions (RE’s), because they are NOT-religious, not entitled to representation? Maybe some who file for RE’s aren’t religious at all, but that is their only avenue of appeal. Ms. Malkin, whether knowingly or not, is promoting a Double Standard. The Constitution is supposed to guarantee religious freedom, which should also mean freedom FROM religion.

    Religious Freedom Restoration Act does not require a religious exemption to be based on a formal, organized religion, all that is required is a sincere moral belief. In this case it is a Christian, yes, but it doesn't have to be, by law. Even an atheist could raise a religious objection, and it counts no differently.

    Anyone who’s signed up for the military since then knew exactly what they were getting into. They signed up to serve ZOG and spread evil and misery around the world.

    Fuck everyone in the military.

  10. The self-described “Navy brat” from a family with three generations of veterans believes “critical thinking is imperative for officers.” Joining the Air Force was Suess’

    “Military brat”. You know you’re living in an empire with terms like this. I didn’t come from a military family and my dad wasn’t a veteran. At least he never referred to himself as that.

    My dad was drafted and fought in ferocious battles in the U.S. Army in WWII and in his late 90’s now might still have some shrapnel in his body from wounds he received. He came back from the war and went to school and worked 12 hours a day and raised 6 kids and never, ever, identified himself as a veteran or mentioned that he was in war. None of my other friends’ dads did either. Only at their funerals did I learn that they were at Normandy or the Bulge or Okinawa.

    Today every guy or gal who did a 4-year stint shuffling papers at Wright-Patterson AFB wants you to know they “served”, are a “veteran”, and if they did an 8-month stint at Bagram and once experienced an air raid drill that they were also “in combat”.

    Today the military serves as the goon for Globohomoshlomo and throws its weight around by making examples of relatively defenseless countries with weak or non-existent militaries. And even there they need to spend months of bombing, including civilian infrastructure, lest their professional soldiers face any organized resistance as they storm third-world villages and kill goat herders who might be planning to defend their own land with an AK-47.

    But they don’t want to get into a brawl with a big boy- like Russia and China— who can not only punch back but lay them out. So they bribe some lackey and give him boxing lessons and tell ‘em “You can do it!”

    The modern military is merely a tool for deracination. It’s a way to not only pacify that segment of the population that could cause serious problems to TPTB if they rose up but also to make loyal servants of Globohomoshlomo. The ubiquitous military bumper stickers and windows decals is evidence that the deracination was successful, that a “all-volunteer U.S. military” (i.e., paid) was not about fighting major wars but a tool of social control. Hell, all those veterans aren’t even paid to advertise for Globohomoshlomo when they sport USMC or Army bumper stickers on their pickups or fly flags in front of their homes with boats in their driveways.

    And the Globohomoshlomo deracination program of the all-volunteer professional military becomes even more effective in the way it insidiously infects the building block of society, the family. Mothers and fathers begin to identify as “Army Mom” or “Proud Parent of a Marine”.

    And the \$270 billion Veterans Affairs main purpose is not medical or healthcare but to continue the deracination process and cement the dependency and loyalty to Globohomoshlomo. Veterans discounts, hiring preference, adulation at sporting events, et al., is all part of the plan of the TPTB to facilitate deracination and cement loyalty to Globohomoshlomo.

    Yes, the first-class “U.S. all-volunteer professional military”. Not like the schlubs who served/fought in WWII like my dad, who went to an Ivy League school and got a doctorate and never once volunteered his biography to anyone. Or my dad’s commanding officer in WWII, another draftee, and a Ivy League medical doctor from Boston. I guess these guys are not of the caliber of today’s professional military, made up of our lower class from Kentucky or Florida or San Ysidro, CA.

    Yeah, I guess we should be thankful for our professional military fighting for our freedom by killing that goat herder in Gardez.


    “Thank you for your service!” Hooah!

    Now excuse me while I go watch a Fox Nation special glorifying our heroes in uniform!

  11. By all means. Let’s encourage our young people to join the U.S. Military. After all we have to get over there and make Ukraine safe for money laundering, gay disco and all of the filth that George Soros and his ilk wish upon the world.

    Our forces have already done a “fabulous” job in the ME. Some estimates put the child death toil in Iraq alone at about 500,000.

    In other news a U.S. Military Base in Germany is hosting Gay Trans story reading hour for children. In this case it features men trying to be women doing the story reading.

  13. They’ll get nowhere with religious exemption requests or appeals to reason, but they might take the tack that the available vaccines are on experimental use authorisations, while the order to vaccinate only applies to aporoved vaccines, of which none are available.

  14. Michelle, the Navy has no Lt. Col rank. Bill Mosley is a Lieutenant, rank of O-3. Army and Air Force equivalent rank is Captain. O-4 in the Navy is Lieutenant Commander, Major in the Army and Air Force.

    Also, Administrative Review Boards are required as part of the Administrative Separation process, which is where most sailors refusing the shot are winding up. These boards are convened to determine whether a service member is to be retained or separated. The board recommendation is sent with the administration separation package up to the personnel big wigs in the Pentagon, where the determination to discharge or not is made.

    The key take away from the board is the fact that the vaccine being used by the Navy is still the emergency authorization version, not the FDA approved one, which is not available anywhere despite being FDA approved. FDA’s own documents state that the two vaccines are medically identical but legally distinct.

    In practice disobeying an order the soldier deems "unlawful" means court martial and discharge. It cannot be litigated by our military or courts. The fact the soldier disobeyed can be his defense in the International Criminal Court (to which the US does not agree to jurisdiction). In the end, lawful order is decided by the victor.

    When the State is God, no other religions need apply. Since the military is the enforcement arm of the State (God), then any appeal to an opposing religion is dead in the water. Might as well not even make the effort.

    These people knew (or should have known) before they signed up what they were getting into. As Christians, they should have been extremely wary of enlisting into an organization which lauds and extols the killing and destruction of other people, all of which goes against the teachings of the Christian faith. They should have never joined in the first place and they ought to get out as soon as they can.

    Now that they are there, however, why don’t they just say, “No! I won’t!” If they are really concerned with doing the right thing, they ought to be willing to give up everything, including their freedom (what little bit they have left), to stand for what they believe in, even if it means a dishonorable drumming out of the military or a stint in a federal pen.

    Legal options and appeals are nothing more than questionable tactics to ‘have their cake and eat it too.’ Saying “No!” and meaning it, sticking to it regardless of the cost, is the real deal. No matter what the situation. No matter whose life is on the line.

    There is indeed a military exception to the Constitution. It’s called the UCMJ and everyone voluntarily agrees to it. Article 88 trumps the First Amendment every trip of the train.

    When the State is God, no other religions need apply. Since the military is the enforcement arm of the State (God), then any appeal to an opposing religion is dead in the water. Might as well not even make the effort.

    These people knew (or should have known) before they signed up what they were getting into. As Christians, they should have been extremely wary of enlisting into an organization which lauds and extols the killing and destruction of other people, all of which goes against the teachings of the Christian faith. They should have never joined in the first place and they ought to get out as soon as they can.

    Now that they are there, however, why don't they just say, "No! I won't!" If they are really concerned with doing the right thing, they ought to be willing to give up everything, including their freedom (what little bit they have left), to stand for what they believe in, even if it means a dishonorable drumming out of the military or a stint in a federal pen.

    Legal options and appeals are nothing more than questionable tactics to 'have their cake and eat it too.' Saying "No!" and meaning it, sticking to it regardless of the cost, is the real deal. No matter what the situation. No matter whose life is on the line.

    “If you call it ‘taxation’ and ‘war,’ it stops being a sin, right? After all, it was only your god that said you shouldn’t steal and murder, but the state said it was okay. It’s pretty obvious which one outranks the other in your minds. Despite all the churches, synagogues, and mosques we see around us, this nation has one god, and only one god, and that god is called ‘government’.”

    Ms Malkin embraces what must be a failed military. The military does not work when soldiers disobey orders and run to court seeking assistance from a judge in their continued disobedience to orders. You don't negotiate compromise with superior officers. You don't get a judge to countermand orders. Every soldier who refused a covid vaccine should be courtmartialed, spend time in military prison, be discharged dishonorably, and forced to repay their entire cost of training. Imagine if soldiers all started to say "thou shalt not kill" when ordered to shoot the enemy? It does not work.

    Every officer ordering soldiers to harm themselves,
    commit suicide from some greedy, lunatic psycho’s
    experiment or intentional weapon should be tossed.

  33. if SHTF this year they all better get un-woke, pronto. If there are incompetent politicized
    ‘woke hires’ in key duty positions and people on active duty that failed their ASVAB and fitness tests and they get called on to perform in their duty capacity and cannot mentally or physically do so, there will be hell to pay, hundreds of billions or no. As for clotshot, apparently it causes heart problems so DoD will have to reckon with related medical casualties. So there’s your real ‘from within’ sabotage right there, administrative and medical…what will they transform our military into next, a balloon toy? SMH
