Bureaucrats Plan to Destroy Special Forces With Affirmative Action


Hopefully we won’t be needing our special forces for long, because it won’t take liberals long to use Affirmative Action to destroy them:

Elite units in the military are by and large both white and male. Pentagon officials, however, are hoping for a major demographic shift, citing the benefits of diversity…

The benefits of diversity, which is an antonym for indispensable cohesion, are either political or fictional.

Data provided by each individual service to USA Today illustrates current disparities, which are most prominent in units like the Navy SEALs and the Army’s Green Berets. For instance, in the Army, blacks comprised 17 percent of the force in 2013, a figure slightly higher than their representation in the overall population. As the ranks start climbing, the numbers shift. Blacks amount to only 9.4 percent of officers in the military.

Since we are not allowed to mention the word “aptitude,” the only possible explanation is imaginary racism, which can only be fixed by inflicting real racism against more qualified whites.

In the Navy SEALs, just 2 percent are black, while Native Americans make up about 4 percent, or 99 SEALs.

Only 5.6 percent of enlisted Green Berets are black. But in the Air Force, among para-rescuers, the number drops even further down to .6 percent.

The Pentagon considers this to be a problem.

Obama has had years now to purge the Pentagon of soldiers who care about real problems, like our radically diminished capacity to win the sort of wars Obama’s projection of weakness is likely to force us to fight in the future.

The Pentagon in general has made bolstering diversity a major priority in the last several years, with Defense Secretary Ash Carter leading the charge with public pronouncements about the benefits of a diverse force and a recent decision to review the ban on transgender servicemembers.

You can’t blame Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, Ali Khamenei, and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi for snickering gleefully.

The military, Carter has argued, needs to reflect the demographic makeup of the future.

That is, the white minority, homosexualized future our liberal ruling class has planned for us.

As such, the services have made a concerted effort to favor minorities, assigning more weight to race when considering officer promotions.

The effect on morale and retention of letting it be known that promotions are largely based on not being a non–cross-dressing white male should be obvious.

“Diversity makes us a better fighting force,” a senior defense official told USA Today. “It’s not simply a question of equity.”

What utter equum stercoris.

A country that has rejected the concept of merit in favor of political correctness is not going to be winning wars for very long.

The SEALs badge won’t always mean as much as it does now.

Bin Laden’s Obituary Notice


The Daily Sheeple

A Funeral Notice for Osama bin Laden was published on December 26, 2001, in the Egyptian newspaper al-Ward. An English translation is provided below. Anyone fluent in Arabic is invited to verify or correct the translation. This item was sent to me from a reader abroad.

Also below are is a CNN interview with its medical correspondent who examines the last non-faked video of bin Laden and concludes that bin Laden is seriously ill.

There is also below a 2002 report that Israeli intelligence has concluded that bin Laden is dead.

I cannot attest to the correctness of any of these reports, but it is unclear why there would be so much disinformation from such varied sources about bin Laden’s condition or what purpose is served.

You can use this information to evaluate the Obama regime’s unsubstantiated claim that Navy SEALs killed bin Laden in Pakistan a decade later.

Try to identify a single event that the US government has not lied about. Weapons of mass destruction? Iranian nukes? Assad’s chemical attack? Spying on Americans? 9/11? The assassination of President John F. Kennedy? The unemployment rate?

Pentagon Orders Navy SEALs To Remove “Don’t Tread On Me” Navy Jack From Uniforms…

Weasel Zippers

Sadly, we’ve come to expect this from the Obama-run Pentagon.

Via Daily Caller:

The Navy Jack is the ‘don’t tread on me’ flag, one that has earned a revered place in America’s naval history and a beloved place in sailor’s hearts, through its use for over two centuries. This symbol of America’s naval ferocity has spanned our country’s entire existence, flying from the masts of the Continental Navy during the war of independence, to today’s War on Terror. In fact, an amendment to the Navy code called SECNAV Instruction 10520.6 clearly states that as of 31 May 2002 all ships are to fly the flag throughout the duration of the War on Terror.

So why would ranking SEAL commanders ban the historical symbol? Is the proverbial top bass banning the flag? Is President Obama?

Clearly the administration and sycophant “top brass” officers have degraded America’s military prestige; from hand-tying rules of engagement, to uniform regulations that make our military allegedly more compatible with foreign forces, to the banning of an awe-inspiring flag that traces its roots to the first U.S. Navy. We have a civilian-led military, but why should our ranking commanders be complicit in the administration’s war on it? Why don’t they stand up to Obama and his leftist cronies?

During my two deployments to Iraq, “Don’t  Tread on Me” was a phrase seen on nearly every uniform and platoon space — including mine. From patches to flags to large paintings on concrete barriers, our commanders themselves wore the insignia on their sleeves — until now.

Exclusive Interview With Extortion 17 SEAL’s Father – What Led To The “Worst Loss Of Life In The Afghan War”

Freedom Outpost

Before there was Benghazi, there was Extortion 17, which was the Chinook helicopter that was  shot down by the Taliban.  All 38 people aboard, including 17 Navy SEALs and  seven Afghan National Army commandos, were killed.  Among the dead was Navy  SEAL  Aaron Vaughn.  In an exclusive interview with Freedom Outpost, Aaron’s  father,  Billy Vaughn told us what he knows and about his new book due out this  month, Betrayed:  Exposing the High Cost of the War on Terror, and the corruption and  incompetence behind what took place that led to his son’s and others deaths.  

Mr. Vaughn told me that he and his wife have dropped out of the lawsuit that  we reported on back in May when the story about the Muslim  cleric in Afghanistan prayed and condemned six Navy SEAL team members to Hell,  saying that the lawsuit was “too broad” and was not in their best interests.

CONFIRMED: US Benghazi SEALs Had Laser Capability and Waited Five Hours For Air Support… But It Never Came

Gateway Pundit

The US SEALs had laser capability and for 5 hours and 15 minutes were wondering when the air support would show up. But it never came. Obama never made the order.

Tyrone Woods begged for air support on 9-11 before his death. It never came.

Facebook Closes Down SEALs to Shield Obama



In case you are short on reasons to dislike Facebook:

Over the weekend, Facebook took down a message by the Special Operations Speaks PAC (SOS) which highlighted the fact that Obama denied backup to the forces being overrun in Benghazi.

The SEAL meme demonstrating that Obama relied on the SEALs when he was finally ready to give his so-called “gutsy call” but then denied them backup in Benghazi was posted by Larry Ward, who explains:

Petraeus on Benghazi: It Wasn’t Me


Central Intelligence Agency director David Petraeus has emphatically denied that he or anyone else at the CIA refused assistance to the former Navy SEALs who requested it three times as terrorists attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on the night of Sep. 11. The Weekly Standard and ABC News report that Petraeus’s denial effectively implicates President Barack Obama, since a refusal to assist “would have been a presidential decision.”
