Our ‘Woke’ Leaders Are Undermining Our Military Defenses


WASHINGTON, DC, Nov 30 — The Merriam-Webster dictionary’s definition of the word “woke” is to be “aware of and actively attentive to important societal facts and issues.” As it pertains to the woke impact on the traditional American way of life, it means that our Founding Fathers got it all wrong — that, in the ensuing 246 years of American history we’ve been deluding ourselves. You don’t have to be a certified professor of history to know that the woke ideology is nothing more than hogwash, to be polite about it.

Think about it. In the woke world boys can be girls if they want and vice versa. Simple words have insidious new definitions [i.e. according to the New York Post, for example, the common phrase “Rule of thumb” is a no-no because there once was a law in Britain that allowed “men to beat their wives with sticks no wider than their thumb.”] 

And then there is the very real and dangerous threat that woke extremists have created to our national security. According to Thomas Spoehr, director of the Center for National Defense at The Heritage Foundation, the biggest threat to our military institutions is “the weakening of its fabric by radical progressive [or “woke”] policies being imposed, not by a rising generation of slackers, but by the very leaders charged with ensuring their readiness…Wokeness in the military is being imposed by elected and appointed leaders in the White House, Congress, and the Pentagon who have little understanding of the purpose, character, traditions, and requirements of the institution they are trying to change.”

Here we are, faced with the real threat of nuclear war posed by Russia’s strongman Vladimir Putin and our military forces are having a hard time, at best, to attract recruits. In 2022, thus far, the U.S. Army’s recruiting goal is short by 25% — 15,000 men and women. A new report by Senator Marco Rubio [R-FL] and Congressman Chip Roy [R-TX] says the shortfall — a dangerous sign of our weakening defense capabilities — is the fault of the woke ideology of the Biden administration.

In a Fox News Opinion article penned by former U.S. secretary of State, and former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Mike Pompeo, he focused his attention on the dangers posed by President Biden’s regime as he tries to turn America’s warriors into woke-minded ideologists. “We must do everything we can to stop the spread of wokeness throughout our armed forces and put a stop to it. Under the Biden administration, warfighting doctrines are being replaced – even at the training level – with doctrines of diversity, equity and inclusion.”  

Pompeo’s OpEd went on to say “This sickness has most recently taken hold in the Air Force. As Fox News reported, the United States Air Force Academy – the sister university to my alma mater of West Point – has created a fellowship program that excludes men who are biological males – only women and transgendered need apply. Academy cadets are also being told to avoid committing ‘microaggressions’ by replacing terms such as ‘you guys’ and ‘terrorists’ with terms that have been deemed ‘less offensive.’  Instructors tell cadets that they should use the terms ‘Parent’ or ‘Caregiver,’ rather than say ‘Mom and Dad.’ You can say ‘Partner,’ but not ‘Boyfriend/Girlfriend.’ Under the Biden administration, our Air Force cannot call terrorists what they are, yet considers ‘Mom and Dad’ to be offensive language. We have put pronouns over potency in our fighting forces.”

It’s no wonder that the U.S. military is having a hard time attracting recruits. War is a nasty business, but the only way to avert it is to be stronger and smarter than the enemy. The absurdity of the military woke movement is that it sends a weak and wrong message to our enemies and to prospective recruits who would, otherwise, be standing in line to defend our nation.

I (state your name) do solemly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegence to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and orders of the officers appointed over me, according to the regulations and the uniform code of military justice, so help me God.

Nuremberg Code
The Nuremberg Military Tribunal’s decision in the case of the United States v Karl Brandt et al. includes what is now called the Nuremberg Code, a ten point statement delimiting permissible medical experimentation on human subjects. According to this statement, humane experimentation is justified only if its results benefit society and it is carried out in accord with basic principles that “satisfy moral, ethical, and legal concepts.”

—“Permissible Medical Experiments.” Trials of War Criminals before the Nuremberg Military Tribunals under Control Council Law No. 10. Nuremberg October 1946 – April 1949, Washington. U.S. Government Printing Office (n.d.), vol. 2., pp. 181-182.

The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, over-reaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion, and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element requires that before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject there should be made known to him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected; and the effects upon his health or person which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment.

The duty and responsibility for ascertaining the quality of the consent rests upon each individual who initiates, directs or engages in the experiment. It is a personal duty and responsibility which may not be delegated to another with impunity.

The experiment should be such as to yield fruitful results for the good of society, unprocurable by other methods or means of study, and not random and unnecessary in nature.
The experiment should be so designed and based on the results of animal experimentation and a knowledge of the natural history of the disease or other problem under study that the anticipated results will justify the performance of the experiment.
The experiment should be so conducted as to avoid all unnecessary physical and mental suffering and injury.
No experiment should be conducted where there is an a priori reason to believe that death or disabling injury will occur; except, perhaps, in those experiments where the experimental physicians also serve as subjects.
The degree of risk to be taken should never exceed that determined by the humanitarian importance of the problem to be solved by the experiment.
Proper preparations should be made and adequate facilities provided to protect the experimental subject against even remote possibilities of injury disability or death.
The experiment should be conducted only by scientifically qualified persons. The highest degree of skill and care should be required through all stages of the experiment of those who conduct or engage in the experiment.
During the course of the experiment the human subject should be at liberty to bring the experiment to an end if he has reached the physical or mental state where continuation of the experiment seems to him to be impossible.
During the course of the experiment the scientist in charge must be prepared to terminate the experiment at any stage, if he has probable cause to believe, in the exercise of the good faith, superior skill and careful judgement required by him that a continuation of the experiment is likely to result in injury, disability, or death to the experimental subject.          

Hitler was elected, and yet after the war Nazies were executed for violating Neurnberg. Vaccine mandates are a violation of Neurenberg.

President Trump’s constitutional rights and that of Democrat opponents are routeenly violated. Jan 6 political prizoners are held w/o trial for a misdomeaner.

What does your oath of service demand?

Ever wonder why Chinese troops are Spartan and anyone who condems there culture is put to death including gays and Muslims?…and yet we condemn our culture, heratige, and Constitutional Republic and make us vulnerable by killing our oil and buying Chinese lithium and solar etc.

That does it. Our son was considering joining the Air Force, but I am going to strongly suggest he does not. He can go into the trades and make an honest living without being indoctrinated into wokeism!

This has been in the works for a long time, and now this is their big shot to destroy as much of our way of life and our freedoms as they can. This has been the insurrection not Trump. Chinese stated more than 30 years ago that Communism will take America over without firing a shot. It dumbfounds me how all the educated people could not see what the hell was truly going on, unless they were in on it. Hell most American people have become to uninformed and to trusting, we all have been duped. The Dems. are the ones with their head up their ass. Just remember, if the Government is involved DON’T trust them.

You were right on with one statement especially, “…what the hell was truly going on” Hell is exactly what is going on. Have you read Jonathan Cahn’s book, “return of the Gods?” Have you heard the saying, history repeats? Might want to take a look

I thoroughly agree with your comments, Mr. Grimaldi. Woke ideology should have no place in our military Sadly our military is being “pussified” under our current administration which does nothing but undermine our readiness and capabilities.

This administration and Obama are more interested in social engineering than preparing our men and women for duty.
This ‘woke’ joke is about de- masculinity. The officers are not building strong minds and preparing for real service. A Disgrace. China and Russia laugh at the Fools of our nation.
We need LEADERSHIP. Not woke.

Whie China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea are training their soldiers to be fierce warriors who are well-armed and gung-ho, our woke “unleaders” are training ours to be so fragile that they get upset over someone using the wrong pronoun or looking at them funny!

It all comes down to electing strong conservative leaders, from the president on down, and getting rid of the “woke” leaders, including those from the Pentagon on down. This will not happen until the electorate gets their heads out of the sand. I still believe that, in spite of the fraudulent practices, there are still enough common sense people registered to vote, or would register to vote, who would make a difference, if they only voted. And that’s a big “IF”.

For those who haven’t been paying attention, the Left has been working very hard to undermine, degrade, defund, and destroy our military since the Vietnam Era. They want to be sure that when their Communist friends invade, we will not be able to stop them.

Many American citizens are totally clueless, when it comes to the importance of a strong and ready military. Parents, Teachers, and Conservatives must start doing a much better job in informing America’s young people, that the countries that want to destroy us, eventually, will destroy us — if the USA doesn’t go back to training rough and rugged fighting soldiers. Our enemies are looking at our woke soldiers with increasing amusement and decreasing respect.
