What happens when San Francisco gets put in charge of the military (and the country)?
Military recruitment numbers crater as traditionally patriotic recruits avoid enlisting. The Army is in trouble.
The Army does not expect to hit its ambitious recruiting goal of 65,000 new soldiers this year as the pool of young Americans eligible to serve continues to shrink.
“We are not going to make that goal,” Army Secretary Christine Wormuth told lawmakers at a congressional hearing Tuesday. “We are doing everything we can to get as close to it as possible; we are going to fall short.”
Ah yes, it’s that “shrinking pool” of eligible recruits that’s the issue.
I’m sure that Christine, a Clinton administration intern who, excitingly is the female Army Secretary, is on it. It’ll take a little more diversity, equity and inclusion so that the pool of eligible recruits shrinks to a puddle.
The Navy is having its own recruitment issues.
The Navy will likely miss its recruiting goals by 6,000 sailors for the current fiscal year, the vice chief of naval operations testified Wednesday.
The sea service is aiming to recruit 37,700 active-duty enlisted sailors for Fiscal Year 2023, a goal that VCNO Adm. Lisa Franchetti told the House Armed Services Committee the sea service will fall short of by 15.9 percent.
However, in Franchetti’s written testimony, the VCNO wrote that the Navy will likely miss its active-duty enlisted recruiting goal by 8,000 sailors. The sea service is also expected to fall short of meeting its reserve recruiting numbers by 3,300
Don’t worry, Lisa knows what the men want.
In an effort to increase recruitment, the Navy has invited a drag queen, who is an active-duty sailor, to join its pilot “digital ambassador” program.
As America’s military faces a historic recruiting crisis, the new tactic is intended to broaden the Navy’s reach of potential recruits through digital and social media platforms, according to a report.
Yeoman 2nd Class Joshua Kelley, whose stage name is Harpy Daniels, made an announcement about becoming one of the first “Navy Digital Ambassadors.”
The good news is that the US Navy is not actually going to be expected to fight China when it invades Taiwan. The bad news is that by the time China decides to go after Pearl Harbor, the Navy will consist of a nightclub act in San Francisco that occasionally shows up in pride parades.
If we’re going to survive any major military conflict, a future administration will desperately need to purge the wokes and the political generals, wipe out much of the brass, and bring in warfighters. It was bad enough when these people were rising to the top through virtue signaling, but they’re rotting out the military from the bottom up.
