Is America on Life Support?

Part 2

This is a continuation of a previous post that addresses the very serious symptoms, diagnosis, and prognosis regarding the health and existence of the United States of America. There are many causes for the deterioration of our once most powerful, most free, and most God-honoring nation on planet earth.

In part one of this post-thread, we addressed two specific maladies from which our nation is currently suffering — Election Integrity and our Socialist Education System. These following two serious issues have resulted in additional complications that impact the health and life of our nation.

Corrupt & Biased Media

A free and fair press is an essential part of our system of government, as the Founders so diligently addressed. True journalism and fact-finding is a thing of the past for so many corporate/mainstream media outlets. The left-biased media either spews unabashed lies, or completely omits news stories about which Americans should hear — like failure to report anything on this week’s hearings with the IRS whistleblowers. Let’s take a little stroll down memory lane to point out how liberal media engaged in the blatant mis-reporting of truth, as well as blatant omission of factual stories — all of which have a negative impact on our democracy in this current millennium.

  • January 6
  • Afghanistan withdrawal
  • The Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, MO in 2014
  • Justice Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing
  • Fauci, CDC, NIH, Pharmaceutical Companies, Teacher’s Union & Biden administration lies about COVID-19 and the deadly vaccines.
  • Russia, Russia, Russia
  • Southern border invasion of illegal aliens
  • Hunter’s laptop
  • Fentanyl crisis
  • Gender dysphoria hype
  • Corruption in Ukraine
  • Jeffery Epstein death
  • Nancy Pelosi and family stock trades
  • Biden’s corrupt dealings with China, Ukraine, et.al

This list could go on and on, but you get the picture. Liberal media and social media continue to fuel the fire causing division in America. Fake news permeates the attention of our many citizens by feeding them misinformation and/or burying truth and misdirecting them from relevant news. It is shameful and harmful to everyone. Thank God we still have choices from where we can receive truthful and accurate reporting. There is good news, however. Jesus Christ died for our sins and rose again so that we can be forgiven and reconciled to God through faith in Him.

“You shall not circulate a false report….”  Exodus 23:1

“We are part of the same body. Stop lying and start telling each other the truth.”  Ephesians 4:5

Military Weakness

In my second book, “God’s Truth about America!” I have a chapter titled, “Dumbing Down America — Education of Hate, Hypocrisy, and Hysteria.” Regrettably, this same “dumbing down” has occurred in our military. There was a time, not so long ago, that the U.S. Military was the strongest and most feared in the world. We can no longer make that claim. Due to the “woke” politicization that the current administration is forcing on all branches of our military, our nation is more vulnerable to an invasion or attack to which a defense of such would be extremely challenging.

We are currently experiencing an all-time low in recruitment for all branches. What on earth is causing this critical decline? This began in 2011 with former President Obama’s executive order 13583 “Establishing a Coordinated Government-wide Initiative to Promote Diversity and Inclusion in the Federal Workplace.”

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) has become a mandatory requirement of so much in our society. Yet it is ironic that it is creating the opposite result of its alleged intended purpose. First of all, the military is likely one facet of our society where the least amount of racism and the most amount of diversity, equity, and inclusion were ALREADY present that is before the socialists got involved. Where else would one’s race or any other “woke” factor be a non-factor than in the military, where you rely and embrace your fellow comrades in arms?

When in the heat of battle, DEI is the not part of the thought process survival, victory, and team are top-of-mind.

In other words, members of our military were once color-blind to whoever “had their six.” But in “Woke-Ville” our troops are forced to be inundated with propaganda that would cause members of the “Greatest Generation” to turn in their graves.

Here is just a sampling of the garbage that is weakening our military, and causing recruitment declines:

  • “Pronoun Training” by the US Navy
  • “Critical Race Theory” ideology in military academies like West Point
  • Mandatory COVID vaccines or face discharge from military (these people are, or were, the sector of the population with fewest risk factors, but I digress)
  • In 2022, the Dept. of Defense (DOD) changed its policy to allow military personnel who are diagnosed with HIV to deployments to combat zones, from which they were previously barred. Would you want to be in a situation like war where the shedding of blood is common?
  • Reducing (or dumbing down) Army combat fitness test to obtain “equitable” outcomes. Tell me how this doesn’t enhance our combat readiness and effectiveness.
  • The DOD has granted military members who identify as transgender with outrageous perks. You’ve got to read this.
  • In the name of diversity, the Air Force has lowered both previous flying experience and college grade-point average requirements. What possible consequences could this yield?

Our military bozos (Milley, Austin, and let’s include Blinkin and Mayorkas) currently serving in Biden’s administration, have done everything to cause the dangerous decline in confidence the American people have in our U.S. Military. It was bad enough that the Afghanistan withdrawal brought shame to America and death to our troops, but this slippery slope of “wokeism” could be terminal.

Here’s a suggestion to General Milley and all the other woke military leaders. Instead of focusing on your “white rage” and compromising the standards and requirements for service in the military, how about focusing on recruiting patriotic and qualified men and women (that’s right … only two genders) who are willing to dedicate their time and lives to protect and defend our republic? Focusing on pronouns that one might want to identify as, is of zero value to we the people!
