Although this paper by Ray Starmann is directed to the US Army, it mirrors the Australian ADF.
The new military replacing the Anzacs has been sealed with a kiss and hand shakes replacing combat capabilities expected of any defence force basic requirement to defend their country.
This article pulls no punches and quotes it as it is today in our Armed Forces and replace US Army with Australian Defence Force for that is what we have protecting this nation.
In the Army, It’s Death by a Thousand PC Cuts
By Ray Starmann
The warrior culture in the US Army is dying every day, in a hideously slow death by a thousand lacerations of social engineering, diversity and political correctness lunacy, abated by senior army leaders who are too gutless to raise even a finger in protest.
From Green Beret training standards lower than ROTC camp in the 80’s to Mommy Rangers, lactation memos, pregnancy simulators during physical training and a parade of cadets in red high heels, it’s more than apparent that this isn’t your father’s army anymore.
Heck, it isn’t even your older brother’s army anymore.
The Army, like the rest of the military is evolving into a farce, a Potemkin Village built on lies, hidden by a smokescreen of platitudes and power point presentations to disguise the fact that no one with a star on their shoulders has the cajones to do anything to stop the PC madness, including the current Secretary of Defense.
The army’s current leadership, or Generation Rationalization believes that every bit of leftist dogma stuffed into the carcass of the US Army is a beautiful idea that will somehow benefit the army, when in fact, it’s a terminal cancer killing the army’s warrior culture.
According to two ridiculous articles in the Daily Mail and the New York Times that lauded the event as if it was the social happening of the year…
Captain Daniel Hall, 30, and Captain Vincent Franchino, 26, were married in the West Point Chapel on January 13th.
The two officers are both Apache helicopter pilots, the New York Times reports.
The captains, who are now stationed together at Fort Bliss in Texas, were married in front of 150 family members and friends, 34 of whom were military officers.
The army condones this as totally normal.
And, sadly, 34 of their fellow army officers condone this as normal, rather than socially deviant Behaviour. Imagine for one moment, Patton, MacArthur, Ike, Bradley, Collins and Hodges attending a gay wedding in 1944.
I know. Those guys are fossils, from another time that wasn’t basking in diversity and sensitivity.
Those old and dead guys knew how to fight and win wars.
The couple sported their blue army uniforms and received a saber-arch salute as they left the chapel. Their reception was held at Skylands Manor in New Jersey.
How sweet! They look so cute in their mess dress uniforms.
Franchino and Hall met in August 2009, back when the former was a freshman (or ‘plebe’ in the school’s parlance) and the latter was a senior (or ‘firstie’).
As part of a school tradition in which the plebes seek to hold up departing seniors, Franchino hid under Hall’s bed and popped out to scare him.
‘Dan was so startled, he jumped over his desk,’ Franchino told the New York Times.
Later in 2010, they chose each other for a mentorship program – Franchino as mentee and Hall as mentor. It was at this point that their feelings for each other developed.
But because of the Bill Clinton-effected 1993 policy of ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’ which barred homosexual servicemen and servicewomen from being ‘out’ in the military, they could not show their feelings.
‘We were serving under a policy that was telling all of us — perfectly capable soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines — to lie about ourselves,’ Hall told the New York Times.
No, you were serving under a policy seeking to stop the demolition of the warrior culture.
At one point, when Hall was deployed along with his Boeing AH-64 Apache to South Korea, they called their relationship off temporarily.
But they got back together and may now hope to live happily ever after.
The couple, which will now go by the last name Franchino-Hall, enjoyed their first dance as married men to ‘La Vie En Rose’ by Edith Piaf.
Think about this:
At West Point. (Duntroon Australia)
The West Point of perversion weddings has also given us the likes of Comrade Lieutenant Rapone, the communist son of a b*tch who currently is still on active duty at Fort Drum. The Army claims Rapone is being investigated.
Uh huh. The bravo sierra meter is red lining.
Question for General Milley. How long does it take to dishonourably discharge one communist second lieutenant?
Jeopardy music playing…
No doubt Rapone and his Workers’ Paradise banners have been shoved under the E Ring rug, while hoping the public forgets about it.
Don’t rock the boat boys: Tricare, pension, defense contractor job and PX parking space for wife more important than national security or the future of the army.
And, there you have it. A conscious decision has been made in the military’s senior leadership to allow the insanity to prevail and to s-can the warrior culture and replace it with godless, San Francisco values. The conscious decision has been made because the leaders, as mentioned, are gutless and because many of them believe in this madness.
You can’t have a warrior culture and a PC military. The two are anathema to one another.
And, what is the warrior culture I keep harping about?
It is a culture that embraces what the feminists call toxic masculinity, camaraderie, aka, the Band of Brothers ethos, which is real. It is a culture that functions perfectly without women, and without distractions like open homosexuality, transgenders and sensitivity training. It is a culture that enables men to endure the unendurable and to achieve the impossible.
21 December 2016: In what media reports are labelling an “early win” for the 23 graziers in the Charters Towers area who were potentially going to have their properties forcibly aquired, the Defence Department will look into alternative sites for the Australian Defence Force’s (ADF) Singapore Army training deal.
KAP Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter, who resides in Charters Towers, has thanked the Senior Ministers he met with on the issue earlier in the month.
Mr Katter said, “We want to put on public record our appreciation to Defence Industry Minister Christopher Pyne and Finance Minister Mathias Cormann.
“Just a short while after I met with them and the day after tens of dozens of graziers and members of the greater Charters Towers community rallied with KAP Member for Dalrymple, Shane Knuth and I at the Dalrymple sale yards last week, the Defence Department has announced it will look at two alternatives for its $2.2 billion Singapore training site.
“If no other part of the Government is working, Minister Pyne’s and Minister Cormann’s areas are — and we appreciate them for that.”
The Defence Department has confirmed that is will conduct a feasibility study into the viability of using two alternative sites – Pentland and Greenvale.
Mr Katter said, “The battle isn’t over yet, we need to keep fighting until the ADF commit to an alternative site.
“But I have complete faith in the tenacity and the unity of the affected graziers and Charters Towers community – to not roll over, to not accept their fate and to keep fighting! And Shaney and I will be with you all the way!”
Liberal Senator for Queensland Ian McDonald wants the defence force to buy 23 agricultural and grazing properties next to Townsville city to accommodate Singaporean troops
Katter Australia Party – 2 December 2016
KAP Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter is continuing the fight for nervous landholders who look set to lose their properties through the Australian Defence Force’s expansion plans.
Mr Katter met with Finance Minister Cormann and the Defence Minister Pyne during the last sitting week in Parliament.
Mr Katter told the Finance Minister there are more cost effective areas than Hervey Range for the ADF’s training expansion needs to meet the Singapore Defence Deal.
Mr Katter said, “I told him there won’t be much change from half a billion. One of these properties was recently sold for over $17m.
“Well there are 23 properties in this proposed resumption area.
“They can acquire a vastly more secure area for under 30 million verses half a billion!
“My experience of these issues is that Government end up paying two or three times the market price when these things are fought out in the courts.
“An extra two hours’ drive to the other side of Pentland (where I propose the ADF buy out) would be neither here nor there.
“The other side of Pentland is very poor country. There is no run off from that area to the Great Barrier Reef or domestic water.
“All the problems of the Range simply do not exist at Pentland
“You do not take prime agricultural area to use for a military training area.”
In fierce contrast to Mr Katter, Senator Ian McDonald — who is based in Townsville supports the deal.
Mr Katter said, “The Liberal spokesman (who I’m sure many Liberals would like to put a bung in his mouth, in his vast wisdom he lost the LNP the seat of Townsville and most of the QLD seats too…) well, he’s come up with a gem here.
“Probably the most serious issue here is the strangling of development .
“Townsville has only one serious growth corridor which is Hervey Range.
“This proposal will land lock Townsville. It is disastrous for the city.
“We are positive for the expansion, but not at the expense at our future meat works, the future growth of our city, the destruction of prime agricultural land and serious issues of ordinance running on to the Great Barrier Reef.”
Harry Palmer Comments:
Senator MacDonald has confirmed – “All the seats of fools are now taken in parliament” as that voice of the people diminishes further under this LNP government control generating a fast dawning back to democracy with Bob Katter remaining true voice of the people of Queensland in the house that makes the rules.
THIS IS BEYOND BELIEF!
Ben Fordham,2GB Sydney presenter questions – Defence Force Stuff Up
Surely this is high treason and heads should roll!
Who in our government let this happen to our ADF. (I bet this has the fingerprint of a certain Navy CAPT splattered all over it!!)
Listen and make your own mind up to this huge stuff up before it gets pulled for being racist or not political correct…. Opps this copy is out of big brothers reach.
14 July 2015: Responding to today’s news that Indonesia will only take 50,000 head of cattle this quarter instead of the 200,000 head rumoured, Federal Member for Kennedy and KAP Leader Bob Katter said his warnings to the Prime Minister and Foreign Affairs Minister in March this year had unfortunately proven correct.
In March Mr Katter asked a question of the Minister for Foreign Affairs in the Parliament warning the Government to proceed with caution, lest the relationship with Indonesia be jepordised.
Mr Katter asked the Minister for Foreign Affairs “First Australians found that friction causes fire. Northern Cattleman got burnt, who next Minister?”.
The 50,000 import permits from Indonesia for Australian Live Cattle is less than half of the Quarter 3 (Q3) average over the past five years and less than a quarter of 200,000 head widely rumoured for Q3.
“In my lifetime I have never seen a Government go out of its way to provoke its neighbor as much as the ALP and LNP Governments in Australia.
“Elements of the Australian media indulge themselves making an issue of two drug traffickers and the Australian Government may have won themselves some votes, but it was at the expense of the Australian farmers.
“The most vulnerable people in the Australian economy, the poor Australian cattle farmer, has taken the hit once again,” Mr Katter said.
In 2011 the Gillard Government made the disastrous decision to ban live cattle exports to Indonesia which resulted in Indonesia dramatically reducing the live cattle quota.
In addition to a more respectful relationship with our neighbours, Mr Katter believes Australia needs a stronger Defence Force in line with the advice of Theodore Roosevelt who stated, ‘I walk softly, but I carry a big stick’.
“My recommendation to the Prime Minister and the alternate Prime Minister, is to have a decent Defence Force instead of the mockery we have at the moment. You keep putting our country in jeopardy, not just economically, how much offence do you think our neighbours will take?
“Currently our leaders have loud mouths, but they have no stick at all – our defence is a joke.
“Last time we went to war with Indonesia Australia had 1.3 million semi-automatic rifles, now we have 50,000. Good luck Prime Minister if you keep shooting your mouth off,” Mr Katter said.
Mr Katter’s electorate of Kennedy is one of the biggest beef producing areas in Australia and heavily reliant on the live cattle market to Indonesia.
Since the live export ban Mr Katter and northern cattlemen have continued to push to restore the market and restore relations with Indonesia, including numerous meetings with the Indonesian Ambassador, conversations with then Prime Minister Rudd prior to his meetings in Indonesia with the President and hosting the Indonesian Ambassador in the Gulf of Carpentaria to see first-hand live cattle export facilities and cattle stations.
Mr Katter and State Member for Mount Isa will next week visit the centre of the Northern Queensland Live Cattle area – the Gulf of Carpentaria – for a week long visit to communities heavily reliant on the industry.
“For every cattlemen there are livestock hauliers, mustering contractors, fencing contractors and people at the local store in the town that has no customers.
“The knock on effect here is dramatic,” Mr Katter said.
