Posted onOctober 21, 2021byifnm|Comments Off on Gen. Keith Kellogg: Our military and the alarming disappearance of accountability
Too many have forgotten that they lead the military to fight and win our nation’s wars
Accountability remains one of the most important
tenets in leadership and, until recently, was a crucial component to
success in the military.
Accountability develops trust, demonstrates stewardship, and influences
decision-making. By virtue of its necessity, it is interwoven into
nearly every aspect of life in uniform. Troop formations, combat
success, physical fitness tests, individual performance reports,
financial liability investigations for property loss — all are
mechanisms and tools of accountability.
accountability in decision making at the highest levels of the military
appears to have all but disappeared. Over the past decade, stars on
shoulders became Afghan participation trophies and we all but celebrated mediocrity in our leaders.
As Kabul fell so did our trust and faith in our military senior leaders. The chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan and the ‘just-for-show’ hearings in Congress that followed indicate the weakness and inability of our uniformed and elected leaders to accept the most fundamental aspect of their job…accountability.

The most concerning part of the podcast is when Kent reveals the reason why the military is going woke, and how the top brass under Biden are using the mandatory COVID shots to weed out conservative service members.
The Dennis Michael Lynch Podcast for September 4, 2021, is 48-minutes.
DML is joined by combat veteran and congressional candidate Joe Kent.
Kent served in the military for 21 years, and he participated in 11
combat missions. His wife, who also served in the military, was killed
in Syria during the withdraw. Kent is now running for US Congress. He
lives in Washington State.
The discussion between DML and Kent starts with the events in Afghanistan. Kent provides a haunting, detailed analysis of what the 13 service members probably thought to themselves at the moment they were killed.
Our nation’s senior-officer educational institutions no longer teach warfighting—and that must change.
We must reckon with the hard truth that the United States has lost
another war. Though errors made by policymakers certainly played a part,
our military lost in Afghanistan because it no longer knows how to
fight and win wars. This wasn’t because our military professionals lack
will or effort but because they have forgotten the real purpose for
which militaries exist. Nowhere is this truer than in America’s war
colleges—the schools our nation established to teach officers how to
fight and win wars. The plain fact is that these schools no longer teach
warfighting. This may sound incredible—even unbelievable—but it is
In May 2020, the Joint Chiefs of Staff published guidance for the education of future senior military leaders that repeatedly emphasized the need for all senior officers to learn how to fight wars and campaigns as a joint force. The various services are specialized to fight and win battles on land, at sea, and in the air, but campaigns and wars require building, supporting, and commanding formations that fight in all three environments simultaneously, often far from the United States. The Joint Chiefs issued their guidance because our senior-officer education system does not prepare its students for joint warfighting, which is enormously complicated.

Scheller said he wanted senior leaders to accept accountability
The U.S. Marine relieved of his command for calling out his superiors over the disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal that led to the deaths of 13 service members said Sunday he was officially resigning.
a tell-all video posted on social media, Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller
acknowledged he was sacrificing a comfortable retirement by criticizing
the way the withdrawal was handled.
“I could stay in the Marine Corps for another three years, but I don’t think that’s the path I’m on. I’m resigning my commission as a United States Marine, effective now,” Scheller said. “I am forfeiting retirements, all entitlements, I don’t want a single dollar. I don’t want any money from the VA. I don’t want any VA benefits [even though] I’m sure I’m entitled 100%.”
The video includes a hypothetical scenario
with a mixed-race student named Jose, who is pressured by two of his
friends to attend the Black Lives Matter meeting on campus. A third
friend, apparently meeting Jose for the first time, introduces himself
while expressing surprise that Jose does not look “more south of the
After Jose explains that he is a mix of Mexican and Nigerian, the third friend makes a comment critical of Black Lives Matter.
“No offense, but it seems like all lives matter would be a better way to bring people together,” the friend says. “Because Blacks aren’t the only lives that matter. It just seems like you’re dad’s family matters less than your mom’s.”

“Critical race theory is racist, anti-American, and repackaged Marxism. It has no place in our military, let alone the storied heights of West Point,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The Pentagon needs to immediately follow the FOIA law so the American people can fully understand and stop the extremist indoctrination of the U.S. Army’s rising leadership at West Point.”
announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
lawsuit against the Department of Defense for all records related to
diversity, inclusion, and equity training for first-year cadets entering
West Point (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Defense (No. 1:21-cv-01795)).
This lawsuit was filed after the United States Military Academy failed to respond to an April 6, 2021, FOIA request seeking:
Copies of all diversity, inclusion, and equity training materials
for first-year Cadets entering West Point. This includes lists of
reading materials and presentation materials that promote diversity,
inclusion, and equity for first-year Cadets.
Copies of all contracts between the U.S Military Academy and any
organization or company responsible for coordinating and implementing
diversity, inclusion, and equity programs and training for Cadets at the
United States Military Academy.

“I guarantee you every unit in the Navy is up to speed on their diversity training. I’m sorry that I can’t say the same of their ship handling training,” an anonymous retired senior enlisted leader reportedly told investigators.
Four Republican members of Congress are sounding the alarm about
naval readiness following the release of a report intended to address “a series of high–profile and damaging operational failures in the Navy’s Surface Warfare community.”
Two retired military officers, Lt. Gen. Robert Schmidle, USMC and Rear Admiral Mark Montgomery, USN, interviewed 77 members of the Navy for the report. The report was commissioned by Republicans Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton, Indiana Rep. Jim Banks, Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw and Wisconsin Rep. Mike Gallagher. They found that interviewees held a “broad consensus” that the Navy is “insufficient[ly] focus[ed] on warfighting skills.”

Another disloyal military leader undermines our national security.
“Unconscious bias,” an Air Force video warns, “can’t be seen or
felt.” As the camera focuses on white personnel, an unseen minority
voice claims that, “it hides itself in our unseen behaviors”.
“As Airmen in the U.S. Air Force, it’s our duty to acknowledge our
biases whether we realize they exist or not,” the official video pushing
critical race theory struggle sessions demands.
This is Chief of Staff Charles Q. Brown Jr’s new Air Force.
Brown, the first black Chief of Staff of the Air Force, ought to be a living symbol of opportunity. Instead, like other disloyal military leaders, including his predecessor, Chief of Staff David Goldfein, he’s smearing America, and conducting a witch hunt for imaginary racism.

Here I offer an inside look at how the Pentagon identifies and purges “extremists” from the military. Basically the woke generals work with leftist Antifa types who are themselves more “extreme” than the people they seek to root out.
