"Woke, broke, or both?" It's a question the U.S. military can't avoid these days. Trapped in a sinkhole of Left-wing radicalism, our troops are so busy fighting climate change, white supremacy, conservative "extremism," and COVID to deal with America's real enemies. Now, as if the embarrassment of Afghanistan, a feeble commander-in-chief, and their top brass's betrayals weren't enough, the president says he's ready to fire anyone who won't get the vaccine.
In the wake of multiple international crises of his own making, President Biden arrived on the scenes at the United Nations General Assembly this week to deliver his first address as president. Senator Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) on "Washington Watch" described Biden's speech as "walking into the United Nations and slapping a giant kick me sign on Uncle Sam's back." That's not exactly the image that the leader of the free world wants to convey.
When it comes to the Biden administration's position on immigration enforcement, the message is clear: mixed messaging rules the day.
When the Biden administration unveiled its new maternity flight suits this spring, a lot of people were incredulous. Why would the military waste its time on something so unnecessary? But now, with Democrats about to force women to register for the draft, it's clear: we're going to need a lot more of them.
After repeatedly shooting itself in the foot for months, the Biden administration has finally lurched one step in the right direction -- and two steps in the wrong. This week Biden lifted the travel ban on most of Europe, replacing it with requirements that all foreign entrants to the U.S. must be vaccinated AND have a negative COVID test within 72 hours AND cover their nose and mask for the entire duration of the transcontinental flight.
Under the Biden administration, the armed forces have been aggressively pushing soldiers to get the COVID vaccine or face the consequences. The new rules threaten to harm military retention and recruitment. For Christians, vaccine mandates pose a host of complex questions and conscience concerns. Monday, First Liberty Institute attorney and Marine Corps reservist Mike Berry joined Tony Perkins on "Washington Watch" to discuss the military's recent efforts to force service members to get vaccinated.\r
