Biden’s woke brass keep claiming that adopting every leftist agenda from DEI to abortion to sexual identity politics to HIV deployment is not interfering with military readiness in any way.
Except when they admit it themselves.
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on Tuesday said there will be “powerful effects” on military readiness if Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) continues to hold up more than 150 Pentagon nominees over an abortion policy in the Defense Department.
Austin told the Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC) the U.S. is facing “one of the most complex times” with foreign adversaries and approving the Pentagon’s nominees is “absolutely critical in terms of the impact on the force.”
“Not approving the recommendations for promotions actually creates a ripple effect in the force that makes us far less ready than we need to be,” the defense secretary said.
Approving any Biden nominations is more likely to harm our national security and military readiness than leaving a hole there.
But what Austin unintentionally admitted here is that pursuing the abortion policy is worth it even if it undermines military readiness. Austin could drop the policy or convince the Biden regime to drop its abortion agenda for the military rather than threaten military readiness. Here he admits that the consequences of the abortion policy threaten military readiness, but decides to stick with abortion over military readiness.
Abortion Uber Alles is the creed here. Military readiness can go to hell as long as there’s some shiny leftist object in the way.

Catholic Joe could end up going down in history as one of the foremost enemies of the right to life. This would be an odd legacy for such an ostentatiously Catholic president, and it exposes Old Joe once again as the inveterate liar that he is. In fact, the one certain thing amid all this is that a foremost aspect of the Biden legacy will be a series of tremendous advances and victories for the Father of Lies. ROBERT SPENCER
JOE BIDEN is known as a serial liar, a “public servant” who has somehow managed to accrue tremendous wealth, a race-baiting opportunist, a Catholic-in-name-only, and a bought-and-paid-for politician in bed with criminal cartels and foreign foes. In another era, Joe Biden would have been run out of his country much the same way Benedict Arnold was two and a half centuries ago; in an era when integrity, honor, fortitude, fidelity, and grit have been jettisoned for immorality, unscrupulousness, weakness, betrayal, and craven pliability, however, he is elevated to king sleazeball in a city drowning in sleaze.

Biden rushes over to go through our poclets.
You know what will have powerful (negative) effects on U.S. military readiness? Allowing this administration to continue. In the face of the massive Chinese build-up and bellicose it has proposed defense budgets that are cuts when inflation is factored in. It is focusing on imposing its “green agenda” on our armed forces rather than properly equipping them. It has squandered our war stocks by sending much of it to Ukraine which will take years for us to replace. It has imposed its woke DEI agenda on our forces which will destroy unit cohesion and combat effectiveness as surely as it has already destroyed recruiting. Austin and Milley, together with anyone they’ve promoted, must go and be replaced by competent people who can focus on protecting this country and deterring the increasingly long list of its enemies.
