Cheer up – we’re half way to the weekend.

 

Scum

There are RINO’s like Mitch McConnell and then there are super RINO’s, who should come out and declare themselves to be democrats. The five Republican Senators who voted with the Democrats, rejecting Sen. Rand Paul’s argument that the impeachment trial is unconstitutional were: Mitt Romney (UT) Susan Collins (ME) Lisa Murkowski (AK) Pat Toomey (PA) Ben Sasse (NE)…of course.

Adjust your Attitude, Soldier

What are the implications of the new policy shift toward trannies in the military? (More here) Let’s take a brief look at the new new “Tier Three Transgender Training” materials—a PowerPoint and accompanying lesson plan excerpted below, with full documents at these links—that the Army is now using in mandatory training for all soldiers.

For example, “Vignette Four” of the training module presents the following scenario: “following her transition from male to female (which did not include sex reassignment surgery) and gender marker change in DEERS [DEERS is the military’s personnel database], a transgender Soldier begins using female barracks, bathroom and shower facilities. Because she did not undergo a surgical change, the Soldier still has male genitalia.” How should troops respond? “Soldiers must accept living and working conditions that are often austere, primitive, and characterized by little or no privacy.”

The slide tells soldiers to “understand that you may encounter individuals in barracks, bathrooms, or shower facilities with physical characteristics of the opposite sex despite having the same gender marker in DEERS.”

The next bullet point adds, “all Soldiers should be respectful of the privacy and modesty concerns of others. However, transgender Soldiers are not required or expected to modify or adjust their behavior based on the fact that they do not ‘match’ other Soldiers.”

This is a first. The military is normally in the business of telling soldiers to “modify or adjust their behavior” all the time.

  1. Sergio Aragonés at his finest. I have a couple of paperbacks of his stuff in a box somewhere. It is a mad world.

    As for our military, that is absolutely chilling. The world is watching, especially our enemies, who are licking their chops in anticipation. Combat effective? Sure.

    From Matt Bracken over on Gab–

    “[Sent to me by a retired SF contact.]
    Got a call from a fellow army officer I served with in Afghanistan and Iraq. That was about 10 years ago. He is way up there in the hierarchy of a state that had immense fraud in the last election. (God forbid he says anything about it-he would be done.) The diversity nonsense is so completely rampant as to make the military we served in to be unrecognizable. Basically they are saying that “diversity is now our readiness,” the mantra is that diversity and inclusion support readiness. He and another 160 senior leaders had to sit through a program taught by two transgender E-4s, E4s! one guy who wants to be a woman and one woman who wants to be a guy. It was all about how the military can make these peoples’ lives better, what the military should do, etc. etc. You know the drill. The fact that senior military leaders are sitting through this blather is insane. The vice chief of the Army paid them a visit and conducted a select hand-picked round table to discuss this topic – the hand picking did not include people like my friend. In addition, they were having officers swear another oath, like the first one we took all so many years ago. This time the new oath is to affirm that you are not in an extremist group… of course no definition. Seems that I was talking about this for years in the Army, and where all this would be heading and other issues. I felt like John the Baptist crying in the wilderness. Now I get calls from everyone saying I was right.”

    • There is a blog post commentary like this one in the cue. There was talk, and I think that it’s all talk, that there is an oath coming to the President personally. That’s an exceptionally bad idea, and the mere fact that people are taking the rumor at its face indicates the level of trouble they’re having with the “new normal” wherein the military exists to aid gender reassignment, rather than to serve as the cornerstone of national defense.

      The racial equality briefings go back forty years. Now it’s racial equity – what do minorities “deserve”?

  2. I remember the ’92 Tailhook sexual harassment standown, and also being “persuaded” to sign a statement saying I wasn’t there at the Las Vegas Hilton on whatever the days were. (A little research would have shown we were underway and far away then, but of course this wasn’t about getting to the truth was it). At the time, I was a good little “yes sir yes sir three bags full” LTJG but I noticed that the rights of drug dealers were given priority over our rights to have a lawyer etc. Not that I or we did anything, it’s the principle.
    Slick Willie getting elected a few months later was another low morale moment.

    I can only imagine what it is now, and where it’s going once they drive out the non-Woke crowd. We used to make fun of the Soviets for having political officers but we all know that’s coming anytime, too.

    • I had to sign the same statement. I was not at Tailhook ’92. They seemed pleased to get the statement. I don’t recall the specific text of the stand-down, but today what if those young male aviators and NFO’s self-identified as females, which meant that it was a big lesbian gathering (female and male lesbians)? Would it be celebrated today as a woke achievement?

      Who knows?

      We’re on uncharted ground.

  3. I know it’s hump day, I just wish the dog would stop… And the military can say what they want, but the troops will ‘deal’ with it as appropriate at their levels…

    • Old NFO

      Wasn’t it Patton who said, “You can’t push cooked spaghetti, you must pull it?”
      Doubt the folks pushing this agenda have a clue what life is like in the ranks.

      • They don’t know what life is like in the ranks, nor do they care.

        In much the same way as they treat the National Guard in DC. 5000 men and women in a drafty parking garage in the middle of winter with one electrical outlet and one toilet — ACCEPTABLE. The troopers had been billeted on the floor in and around the Senate cafeteria and we couldn’t have the Senators trying to wedge themselves into a seat with all of the soldiers laying around eating MRE’s, could we?

  4. Wow. Sure went from don’t ask don’t tell to rompaday rainbow in record time.

    They’re clearly betting we’ll never have to fight another war again, which is weird, because the Left’s the War Party. But whoever said Satan was sane?

      • It’s still trickling down to the company level, but no, now’s not the time to serve under the standard unless you’re doing it to qualify for the GI Bill or push your way through college while serving.

  5. US military turning itself into the Judean Suicide Squad (from Life of Brian) is a feature. What, you would rather have a serious, effective military available to attack you with?

    • You make a very valid point, EL. If they’re “modernizing” the military to weaponize against the US public, better to purge out the effectives and leave them with trannies and low-motivation minorities. Just don’t tell the trannies that they look fat in those uniforms, and they have no reason to fight.

  6. I would say that the military stuff is madness, except that it’s intentionally designed to destroy (what’s left of) the US, so it makes sense from that perspective.

    -Kle.

    • Sure, it makes perfect sense in the liberal mind. It’s just an extension of the public assistance/welfare program.
