According to retired Air Force brigadier general and deputy military representative to NATO Blaine Holt, the vaccine mandate being pushed by the Biden administration on members of the military “creates division in the ranks,” which is really not good to have, obviously, when it comes to the individuals who are tasked with protecting and preserving out nation from our enemies. “We see 200 Marines, unfortunately, who are being shown the end of their service careers, and that has a very large impact,” Holt went on to say during an interview on Newsmax’s “Wake Up America.” “I don’t think a lot of people understand the impact it has internally.”
The United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas today issued a preliminary injunction, stopping the Department of Defense from punishing military service members who have religious objections to the vaccine mandate. First Liberty Institute filed a federal lawsuit and motion for preliminary injunction on behalf of dozens of U.S. Navy SEALs and other Naval Special Warfare personnel against the Biden Administration and the Department of Defense for their refusal to grant religious accommodations to the COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
A federal judge granted a temporary injunction Monday against a federal vaccine mandate for Navy SEALs, who sued President Biden because they were seeking a religious exemption. Judge Reed O'Connor, the U.S. District Court Judge for the Northern District of Texas, issued the stay in response to a lawsuit filed by First Liberty Institute in November on behalf of 35 active-duty SEALs and three reservists seeking a religious exemption, as first reported by Fox News Digital.
Join Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin as he unpacks the importance of protecting faith and freedom in our military. You won’t want to miss his insights and message to our Navy SEALs.
No parent wants to put their child in harm’s way. We all know of the sacrifices and dangers of serving in the military, but also understand the truth of the adage, “freedom isn’t free.” This Independence Day, we honor the sacrifice that our servicemen and women have made in defending our freedom. Yet today, three-quarters of our American youth are not qualified for military service, due to criminal records, physical fitness problems, or a lack of a high school diploma. Ordinary Americans can help reverse these trends. Concerned citizens can share and promote military service as an honorable valid career path. Your voice and values can make a difference in protecting our nation!
Biden swore that nobody told him to leave troops in Afghanistan during the withdrawal and a bunch of top generals just nuked that claim
A little over a month ago Biden was asked if any of his military advisers had told him to "just keep 2,500 troops" in Afghanistan following the withdrawal. Biden's response:"No. No one said that to me that I can recall."
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley faces intense scrutiny for phone calls he made to his Chinese counterparts about then-President Donald Trump. But it’s far from the first time Milley’s actions have sparked accusations of politicizing his role.
The Flag Officers 4 America, a group of retired U.S. Generals and Admirals, have called for the resignations of Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark Milley, based on negligence in performing their duties primarily involving the events surrounding the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, in a letter dated 30 August. Newt’s guest is Gen. Joseph Arbuckle.
What has happened in Afghanistan is not over. It is not permissible, excusable, forgivable. We cannot pivot away. What America just saw is gross betrayal. We continue to see it. Resignations are due.
Republican Rep. Markwayne Mullin of Oklahoma defended his "rogue" mission to try to help American citizens leave Afghanistan and accused the Biden administration of standing in the way.
