When I was working on the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s ‘Disloyal Military’ investigation, I predicted that Air Force Chief of Staff Charles Q. Brown Jr. would be selected as the next Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The media is now reporting that Biden will indeed pick Brown to replace Milley. And as bad as Milley was, expect Brown to be much worse.
Under Gen. Brown, the Air Force has become the most woke of the major service branches.
Brown disgraced himself and his uniform during the Black Lives Matter race riots by releasing a video in which he “seemed to barely contain his rage” while ranting “that the ideals of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution ‘that I’ve sworn my adult life to support and defend’ have not always delivered ‘liberty and equality’ to all.”
What horrible acts of oppression did one of the most powerful men in the military experience that made him turn on America? In his own words to People Magazine, “When you get to senior levels, you have reserved parking spots around the base. I was in civilian clothes, I parked in a spot and someone came out and said, ‘That slot is reserved for the Pacific Air Force’s Commander.’ And I go, ‘Yeah, I know, because I am the Pacific Air Force’s Commander.’”
Someone questioned Brown’s parking space once and all the white male officers must pay.
What should we expect from Brown if he becomes the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff?
Last year, Brown, alongside Undersecretary of the Air Force Gina Ortiz Jones, the first
gay and Filipino woman in her role, and other leaders, signed their names to one of the most shocking and destructive racist documents ever produced by the modern military.
The topic of the Air Force memorandum was officer quotas set by race and gender.
Similar quotas had been issued by political appointees in a politically correct military, but they had focused on slowly boosting minority officers rather than calling for a purge of white men.
The 2014 quotas had looked for an 80 percent white, 10 percent black and 8 percent Asian officer corps. While choosing officers by any racial category rather than merit is racist, wrong and illegal under civil rights legislation, this fell short of Brown’s proposed racist purge.
Brown’s quotas limit the number of white officers to 67% and cut white men down to 43%.
The Air Force officer corps is currently 77% white: getting it down to 67%, a reduction of 10%, would require serious effort to purge white officers and bar the doors to any new ones.
Reducing the number of white men in the officer corps to a minority, 43%, would cripple the service and wipe out generations of talent: especially when 86% of pilots are white men.
What do you do with those 86% of white male pilots?
Gen. Brown and his radical allies who are destroying the Air Force and endangering national security claim that their racist and illegal policy is necessary because “diversity and inclusion” are the “key to the success of any organization”. And that requires 7% multiracial officers.
But if that’s the case then why have Air Force readiness rates continued to drop even as the service became more diverse? Brown’s focus on “diversity and inclusion” has been a disaster.
The Air Force has not hit its aircraft readiness rates and the mission critical rates for fighter jets are catastrophic. The F-35A rate fell from 76% to 68% from 2020: the year that the Air Force went woke, endorsed Black Lives Matter and forced racial struggle sessions on its officers.
That was also the year that the White House nominated Brown as Chief of Staff.
In 2022, the rates fell to an outrageous 54%. That’s barely 1 in 2 available planes. In a major war, rates like these mean we would lose and hundreds of thousands of our people could die.
An Air Force Chief of Staff who presided over such a disaster should have been shown the door, unwelcome to work for even the worst and sleaziest defense contractors. Instead, in a triumph for ideology over national security, Biden reportedly wants Brown to be the next Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Considering how much damage he’s already done, imagine how much more devastation he will be able to wreak on the military in an even more senior position.
A recent wargame predicted that we could lose 900 planes in a clash with China over Taiwan with the Air Force losing as much as a third of its fighter/attack strength. Readiness rates like those on Brown’s watch and the loss of the talented pilots he wants to see gone because of the color of their skin and their sex would be the margin between victory and catastrophic defeat.
When taking office, Gen. Brown unveiled his “Accelerate Change or Lose” program. He accelerated change and the Air Force lost. And it’ll go on losing until it cleans house. Brown doesn’t have a vision for beating China, he has a vision of an Air Force with 4.5% male multiracial officers, 3.5% female Asian officers and only 43% white male officers.
That’s not a plan to win a foreign war with the best people, but to win a domestic identity politics war while perhaps securing some payback over his long lost parking space.
Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr. has overseen a service dominated by high-ranking racists with little to show for their time except racial division and a service branch in even worse shape.
“I am a Black man who happens to be the Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force,” Kaleth Wright, now retired, had tweeted “You don’t know the anxiety, the despair, the heartache, the fear, the rage and the disappointment that comes with living in this country… every single day.”
Anthony Cotton, the Commander of US Strategic Command, had claimed that, “when I see what happened to Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks—and the list goes on and on… that could be me.”
Last year, Cotton claimed that “diversity, inclusion are tools for national defense” and that diversity is a “warfighting imperative”. Earlier this year, six Air Force officers were fired over failed safety nuclear inspections, but Cotton got promoted.
“Shame on us if we miss this opportunity to make a change that’s required across our Air Force to make it better,” Brown had berated because the racial composition of personnel was still at least somewhat based on merit and ability rather than on his own racial preferences.
Is the Air Force going to be somehow better when it meets Brown’s quota of .5% Hawaiian female officers? Will it be stronger than the WWII Air Force whose men broke the aerial forces of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan? The new woke Air Force is struggling with recruitment, with readiness rates and couldn’t even manage to spot China’s spy balloons.
Gen. Brown has overseen a national security crisis at one of the crown jewels of national defense and as a reward, Biden would like to make this failed racist the nation’s highest-ranking military officer. Gen. Milley talked about studying white rage, Gen. Brown is suffused with his own racist rage that has led him to wreck the Air Force and, before long, the entire military.
Brown had decided that white male officers should be a minority in the Air Force. Is there any doubt that he would want to see a similar purge of white men across the whole military? With recruitment already an uphill battle, the military cannot afford a woke push to drive away the fighting men who have traditionally given their lives and fought for their country.
Nor can it risk putting woke racism ahead of competence and merit.
Republicans failed to take a stand against Brown’s elevation to Air Force Chief of Staff. If they do not stand up against his elevation to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, they will have no one to blame for the damage and lives lost that will follow from Chairman Brown’s tenure.
(The entire Disloyal Military investigation and military wokeness series of 3 pamphlets is now available from the Freedom Center store for only $1 as part of our effort to publicize the crisis.)
Brown is the racist who brought over 100,000 unvetted Afghans to the U.S. after the Afghanistan withdrawal. Has anyone in Congress dared to ask him questions?

Well, we all know the RINOs are all bluster and no action. Look at McCarthy. A complete squish. The scumbag actually claims the January 6th tourists are “insurrectionists.
Ordinary and decent Americans have very little federal representation. We have Matt Gaetz, J.D. Vance, Jim Jordan, Josh Hawley Dan Crenshaw and that’s about it.
Crenshaw is marginal. McCarthy has been a pleasant surprise so far.

I suspect that’s the idea.
Ugly Sid says
I KNOW that’s the idea. By the way, it was BO’s idea, and he got the idea from his first “mentor,” Frank Marshall Davis.
“Frank” is the dropped cufflink in Dreams From My Father, 1st edition, as if one were needed. He’s a dead ringer for Davis.
Agreed. Additionally, note the statement in the article “In a major war, rates like these mean we would lose and hundreds of thousands of our people could die.” I think this is also the idea.

And so, the criminals and terrorists take over of the nation continues.
How they do it? They simply put some of the like minded criminals and terrorists in charge.
They also rely on an ill-educated and apathetic populace to vote for and go along by lulling them with sweet little lies and various subsidies.
M Richie says
Is that who joins the US military? The US has not won a war in my lifetime (since 1951). The US keeps sacrificing its finest young people in unnecessary conflicts that are of little consequence to the US security or the effort to win would have been made. Unless one thinks the military is going to be an easy job with veterans benefits in an extended peace time (like Gomer Pyle or Beatle Bailey) or one is looking for adventure or hopes to engage in battle, I cant see why someone would join the military today. Not for misguided patriotism with the leaders we have today.
9 yr in sea battle is great very few blacks serviced with me maybe 50 in the 8 years
Sorry, M. Richie, but we kicked ass in the Gulf War. We actually had some legit leadership then, and it didn’t last long enough for it to become politicized and financially beneficial to the lobbyists and contractors.
We did win Desert Storm…..had we had a President like GHW Bush, a combat and near mort veteran himself during Vietnam, war would have been over in 6 months, saving 58,000+ American lives.
Ron B says
Correction: GHW Bush was a naval fly boy officer during WW II. He had several successful missions before being shot down during the attack on the Pacific island of Chichijima. Two of his crew did not survive….. GHW did. More to his military story on wiki and in the James Bradley book; Fly Boys: A True Story of Courage. Packed full of WWII history as it pertains to Japan/US conflict.
Worst recruiting year in 2022 since the all-vol force was created. Seems the young folks are well aware of the broken military force and sub-par leadership.
So much for Top Gun.

I find it striking that fine qualities of the US Army following the near catastrophe wrought by the massive unpreparedness of our ten active Army divisions in June of 1950 resulted from the meritocracy in the enlisted ranks that allowed Black Americans to excel free from the handicaps of the the problem of race discrimination.
When I served, one third of America’s combat formations were Black. And one third of my friends were Black, and I am as White as a fish’s belly.
This appointment is sabotage. We are being knifed in the back.
The Chi-Coms are going to defeat us without firing a shot. Sun Tzu would be impressed.
Is anti-American racial rage
“Outrageous” – here’s another word that no longer has any meaning, a vanishing puff of a cliche.
I suggest that anti-American racial rage is actually “pseudorageous”:
That is, having the quality of cold, calculated, MANUFACTURED rage with intent to divide and destroy everything that makes America strong and good.
So, could it be that creating rage might very well be the life force of the purveyors, the “pseudoragers” of woke?
All male officers should immediately identify as Black Trans females. Problem solved! 😆 🤣 😂
My wife’s family, which is all Navy have retired but her father has died. My father, was a Marine in WW2 from 43-45 and was wounded severely at Okinawa and then spent a year in a Naval Hospital, but now has died. My Brother, was in Vietnam from 69-72 and stayed in the Army for another 3 years, was a Ranger, but has died. None would like what has happened to our military.

Very good article, Daniel, if I can call “good” something which produces anger and foreboding.
“You don’t know the anxiety, the despair, the heartache, the fear, the rage and the disappointment that comes with living in this country… every single day.”
Can we sponsor a one-way ticket out of the country, for this ungrateful bastard?
“when I see what happened to Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks—and the list goes on and on… that could be me.”
Yes, if you are involved in crime and resisting arrest.
While the Chi Coms are preparing to kick our ass, you inbred rednecks are whining about Bud Light, Disney, and this type of drivel.
Because it’s all the same thing.
Could I just say that you know nothing about me or what I’m doing?
Brown is an Obama protégé, which means that he holds Obama’s views on race and America. And that is to say that Brown is by any standard, a black racial supremacist and a traitor to the Constitution and the rule of law. What’s he’s doing for Obama is blatantly illegal.
Apparently, Obama required Brown to sign some kind of loyalty oath to him personally, which is the trick Hitler employed to push / pull Germans into another insane war they didn’t want. Sadly, Hitler’s step by step seizure of power couldn’t be stopped by the fall of 1934. The rest is sad, sad history.
Get your phony outrage out of my face.
Angel Jacob says
And so, the power grab by the criminals continues.
Arthur Sido says
It is pretty amusing when you think about it, they want to purge the group (White men) without whom there wouldn’t be an Air Force at all or airplanes in general. Good luck keeping planes in the air without the people that invented air travel.
Wow, and to think back in the 1990s many of us in the AF thought Tony McPeak was a disaster. At least he loved the country and the AF.
If a Republican wins the presidency in 2024, which is very doubtful, they will need to fire every military officer above the rank of colonel and then promote new general officers from the O-6 level. They will need to reactivate many of the retired officers that are reliable and willing to return.
Which is something Trump should have done but didn’t. Instead he left the Obama appointed traitors in place.
And not just in the USAF, but at DOJ, FBI, DHS, and the whole DOD.
Retain Mike says
Brown is able to resolve the principles of Marxism to support the creation of White Privilege, Black Lives Matter, and Critical Race Theory. The resulting policies, cherished by sinister and credulous alike, inject patricians and their mandarins with ever greater fiduciary powers to compel a subservience of citizens never intended by our Constitution.
We are presented with two views of history. Karl Marx says, “The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggle”. This view is limited to what can be observed, measured, or computed. Everything exists within the bounds of infinity. Humanity exists as swarms identified to be irradicated or dominated. There is no perception or acknowledgement of eternity. The Declaration of Independence says, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. In this expression, the Creator reaches into our world from eternity to endow individual humans with inestimable value.
Therefore, successful governments become those which take His view of humanity as a condition precedent to correctly serve the individual.
Joseph Syslo says
Not to mention that the re-naming of military bases has commenced, and no one is saying anything!!! We WASPS are allowing this revision of our military and history by fiat!!!
Joseph Syslo says
Please do!!! Let’s further “moderate” the First Ammendment! We allow the revision of men who contributed their very lives to give us a great country. That is disgraceful!!!
Joseph Baptist says
Interesting that the guy who was upset about a lack of ‘equality” in the USA was also upset about not being recognized when he parked in his special, exclusive, private, unequal parking spot.
This guy is the antithesis of the USAF core values. He is:
SELFISHNESS before service.
RACISM in all he does.
Glad I was medically retired before this kid of crap became the norm.
Diversity is Our Strength. Only a racist would disagree. Facts, and evidence are tools of the White Heteronormative Patriarchy to enforce White Privilege.
That is delusional thinking. Diversity is a great strength of our nation – that ALL men & women can achieve advancement regardless of their skin color. Diversity is NOT the end goal of the military. Preparedness to protect our nation is the goal.
Merit is the only requirement when granting authority and responsibility. Skin color (yes, even if it’s white) has no place in building a military (or company, etc.). Capability is all that matters. Considering skin color for anything is racist, regardless of which way it swings. “Only a racist would disagree.”
No one here is stating that non-whites are not as capable as whites. If our current military was built upon pro-white racism, that’s wrong too. But a deliberate swing in the other direction is just as wrong and does not get us to our goal.
The consequences of meritless advancement are too great to do it any other way.
Are the results cited above a result of this? Decide for yourself, but it seems more than coincidental.
The chairman after-next will be Chinese and all officers will be Chinese. By then we will have been fully conquered, colonized and subjugated by the PRC.
Better hope you do not share a blood-type with some PRC official who needs and organ transplant.

Whites in America will get the African National Congress treatment of South Africa until they decide to stand up and stop the Africanization of the US.
Ask white farmers in South Africa how life is under black rule.
Andrew Blackadder says
So Mr Brown being the black guy about to control the US Military wants American Military Forces to look like African countries Military Forces and perhaps he can also base some of that on the wonderful conditions in every single black American Community from Sea to Shining Sea.
Who built America up to what it is today, who invented the Aircraft, Rocket Ships, in FACT which Race and Gender created, invented and discovered 95% of the things that people around the World use in their daily life every single day.
Ask a wee snowflake lassie that question, or some gangbanger in the Projects and watch them freak out.

White Male Officers to be a Minority? He just follows the wish of his impostor-in-chief Biden, who said “Those of us of European stock will be the minority in less than two years, and, that’s a good thing.”
