There are similar priorities for Biden and Harris, to that of the Obama Administration. Unlike the President Bush and President Trump’s “War on Terror”, which pursued Radical Islamic Terrorists like Al-Qaida, ISIS, The Muslim Brotherhood, the Taliban, Hizballah, etc., Biden and Harris new “War on Terror” is aimed at homegrown “extremists” especially among Veterans, and members of the US Military.
Yet Biden and Harris have no interest in apprehending and jailing known ultra-violent Revolutionary Marxist Domestic Terrorists like ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter, who spent much of 2020 leading violent riots, perpetrating arson, creating $2 billion in destruction, looting businesses, putting over 2000 Police Officers in hospitals, torching thousands of police cruisers, and killing hundreds of residents in 200+ Democrat controlled sanctuary cities.
This new “War on Terror” is a renewal of the Obama era attacks on US Military personnel and Veterans, while pursuing the vilification and the assault on Law Enforcement Officers.
In 2008 Obama forced the retirement of 200+ conservative Flag and General Officers. Then Obama established a screening board for Colonels and Captains that were in the zone for promotion to Flag or General Officer. In 2008, and over the previous 231 years, the US Armed Forces had never had such a screening board to determine if Colonels and Captains were “Politically Correct” enough to be allowed to go up before Flag and General Officer Promotion Boards.
That type of uncalled for screening went on for 8 straight years, resulting in the elimination of thousands of highly qualified combat tested conservative officers, and replacing them instead with “Politically Correct” Flag and General Officers acceptable to Obama. Obama established new and dangerous Rules of Engagement, had transgender personnel recruited into the military, depleted military ammunition inventories, and allowed Communist China to overtake the US Naval shipbuilding program, while falling behind in replacing vital combat aircraft; today Communist China has a larger Navy than the US Navy, and the Biden, Harris, and Obama will watch Communist China’s Military outgrow the US military.
The Social Democrat Party revealed that that 80% of members of the US Armed Forces voted for President Donald Trump. Biden, Harris, and Obama are overly concerned about the conservative and white members make-up of the US Military. The attack on the make-up of the rank-and-file US Military personnel has begun in earnest, to begin the removal conservative white elements from its ranks, like the way conservative Flag and General Officers were screened out of the US Military.
For the past 4 years, Law Enforcement Officers were demeaned, targeted, and attacked by the foot soldiers of the Social Democrat Party, ANTIFA and Black lives Matter Domestic Terrorists. About 50 Police Officers were killed in premeditated ambushes over the last 4 years and including ln the riots in 200+ Democrat controlled Sanctuary Cities, where over 2000 Police Officers were hospitalized.

Now it is the active-duty military, reserve components, and National Guard that must be targeted because Americans are being told by the Leftist Main Stream Media, and Big Tech that the US Military not only has “Systemic Racists” and “White Supremist” elements within its ranks, but more importantly the existing make-up of the military did not vote for Biden and Harris; that must be changed. On January 29th, four days after Biden’s Transgender Executive Order was issued, changing General Mattis restriction on recruiting transgender personnel.
Secretary of Defense Austin issued a military-wide order specifying that General Mattis’ restrictions on transgenderism would be lifted. Any exceptions to supporting transgenderism, including the conscience relig
ious clauses that General Mattis allowed, for religious convictions, that conflicted with Biden and Obama’s transgender policies will no longer be permitted, regardless of the consequences. Are Christians who oppose transgenderism based on their religious conviction going to be accused of “extremism” and booted from the US Military? If so, that would be a violation “Freedom of Religion”. Military women will be most immediately and negatively affected by Biden’s directive.
Personal privacy is rare enough in the US Armed Forces, because of close quarters, but Biden is ordering women to share their private facilities with biological males, who are claiming to be transgender women, will be very destructive.
Gen Mattis’ existing regulation that personnel with gender dysphoria, who join the US military will not be permitted to obtain sex reassignment surgery, must remain in effect. Military hospitals are already overtaxed with many serious combat related surgeries often delayed because of lack of capacity, and the number of therapists who deal with the heavy combat related PDST and the military family therapies, makes transgender therapy for sex reassignment surgeries unsustainable.
Sex reassignment surgery to complete multiple genitals, breasts, and facial surgeries would take over two years of constant hospitalization, at a cost in of more than $100,000, and a transgender patient would be off duty for over 2 years, then his enlistment would shortly be over.
In the past, the medical costs for 994 military personnel
diagnosed with gender dysphoria increased by 300% and required 30,000 mental health visits—an unacceptable cost for 994 personnel.
Biden, Harris, and Obama are having the FBI dig into social media accounts of anyone who went to Washington, DC on January 6th to hear the speech of President Trump at the Washington Monument (a massive undertaking costing millions of dollars). A small percentage of those 800,000 Trump supporters went to tour the US Capitol, at the end of the President’s speech. Capital Police Officers welcomed the Trump supporters to tour the Capitol, with open arms, via the roped off pre-designated walkways set up within the Capitol; there are videos of many Trump supporters taking the tour down roped off paths, walking two by two. The US military personnel who toured the Capitol were loyal to their oath of office, and to the US Constitution; the below listed initiatives are designed to try to change the impression of military personnel as “Systemic Racists” and “White Supremist” in the eyes of Americans.
When the White House was under attack by violent mobs, led by Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA, seriously injuring Secret Service Agents and US Park Police, DOD objected to providing military protection for The White House. Considering the reluctance by DOD, something seemed terribly wrong with the deployment of 26,000 National Guard Troops to Washington, DC for the inauguration, and the establishment of Pelosi’s Great Wall topped with concertina wire. Pelosi turned the Capitol Hill Complex, into a Militarized no man’s zone, paroled by more armed troops than are currently deployed, collectively in Afghanistan, Syria, and Iraq.
The question remains…. why are thousands of armed National Guard personnel remaining in DC into March? Biden, Harris, and Obama are turning the Republic into a Totalitarian State with lockdowns, closing hundreds of thousands of small businesses, no group meetings, no church gatherings, and no children allowed to go to school, but a walled no go zone in DC, while allowing liquor stores, marijuana stores, gambling casinos, strip joints, and thousands of violent looters to riot in the streets with no rioting restrictions in 200+ sanctuary cities led by ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter Domestic Terrorists.
A more sobering question, never asked by the Leftist Main Stream Media, nor explained to the Americans by the Biden Administration, was what was the “Threat” that required 26,000 armed troops? The Biden Administration never identified what the “Threat Assessment” was all about! The Governors of Blue States, where there were on going riots 12 months, very seldom mobilized the National Guard to restore order like Pelosi did in DC. Although they could have easily identified that the rioters were ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter Domestic Terrorists torching thousands of Police
