🗞 *THE C&C ARMY POST* 🗞

🪖 More commenters than usual reported last week that their C&C emails were disappearing and the Google was flagging links to the website as dangerous. It looks like they might be onto something:

I guess somebody doesn’t like it when you point out all their psyops narratives all the time. Would it help if I apologized? Or sent flowers or something?

🗞*WORLD NEWS AND COMMENTARY* 🗞

🔥 LibsofTikTok ran an atypical multi-part post last week, exposing Wisconsin hospital chain UW health’s revolting pediatric gender surgical program.

Within 24 hours, UW Health had scrubbed its website and made all its gender-related YouTube videos private. Whoops! Never mind!

If there was nothing wrong with what these hospitals and doctors were doing, then they would defend it, not hide it. Hiding things suggests you know it’s wrong. I can even get a jury instruction that an attempt to conceal provides an inference of consciousness of guilt.

Here’s the young lady, Dr. Gast, the “gender surgeon” who performs the permanent experimental medical procedures on kids for UW Health:

This story shows the power of LibsofTikTok. With one tweet, she shut down the public face of UW Health’s gross medical program.

💉 In a video interview with the Atlantic last week, that weasel Fauci tried to slime his way out of responsibility for the vast harms he caused while advising two administrations about covid. He pitifully tried to make the case for having to break a few eggs to make an omelet, or the ends justifying the means, or something:

“You have to do something that’s rather draconian, and sometimes when you do draconian things, it has collateral negative consequences. Just like when you shut things down even temporarily, it does have deleterious consequences on the economy, on the school children, you know that, but you have to make a balance.”

In other words, Fauci just admitted he KNEW the mitigation measures were going to hurt kids. He just thought it was worth it. To HIM, it was worth it. The kids? Well, who knows. Who cares?

Fauci only offered two examples to justify the “draconian things” that he “balanced” for our own benefit: (1) “overrun” New York Hospitals, and (2) “ICUs in hallways.” It’s telling that’s the best he could come up with.

Both are lies that are trivially easy to disprove.

Even worse, Fauci tried to silence any opposing opinions. The authors and signers of the Great Barrington declaration publicly warned that the lockdowns wouldn’t work, and would cause enormous collateral damages. Fauci’s response to that age advice — proven correct in hindsight — was to secretly conspire with Francis Collins to cancel the scientists who signed the declaration. “You have to make a balance.”

Paul Alexander, a former adviser to the WHO and HHS, has compiled a [list of more than 400 studies](https://brownstone.org/articles/more-than-400-studies-on-the-failure-of-compulsory-covid-interventions/) showing that COVID-19 lockdowns, shelter-in-place policies, school closures, masks and mask mandates have failed to curb virus transmission or reduce deaths.

Fauci was wrong. He’ll never admit it, of course, but at least he’s being forced now to admit “collateral negative consequences.” That’s Fauci-ese for “we broke stuff.”

🚀 Last week, the American Conservative published a critical piece on the Ukraine war titled, “Holding Ground, Losing War.” The sub-head explains, “Zelensky’s strategy of defending territory at all costs has been disastrous for Ukraine.”

The Conservative plainly stated the article’s main point, that Russia hasn’t really started to fight yet: “Russia always had the resources to dramatically escalate the fighting and end the fighting in Ukraine on very harsh terms. Escalation is now in progress.“

But even within the context of the current, more limited conflict, the article describes the Russians being historically patient and deliberate, while the Ukrainians let themselves be pushed around like checkers in a game played by unsupervised two-year-olds.

According to the Conservative, Ukraine made the classic strategic error of valuing inches over lives. In other words, again and again Ukraine’s military — undoubtedly encouraged by U.S. intelligence agencies who craved headlines for their psyops — traded transitory minor territorial gains for significant lives and hardware.

As an example, the Conservative pointed to the recent “victories” in Eastern Ukraine, describing them as a propaganda win but a military disaster:

U.S. satellite arrays undoubtedly provided Ukrainians with a real-time picture of the area showing that Russian forces west of Izium numbered less than 2,000 light troops (the equivalent of paramilitary police, e.g., SWAT and airborne infantry).
The Russian command opted to withdraw its small force from the area that is roughly 1 percent of formerly Ukrainian territory currently under Russian control. However, the price for Kiev’s propaganda victory was high— … an estimated 5,000 to 10,000 Ukrainian troops were killed or wounded in a flat, open area that Russian artillery, rockets, and air strikes turned into a killing field.

Now that Russia has begun its mobilization — which is moving full steam ahead — the Conservative says the war has entered a new phase, provoking a critical inflection point: “Washington confronts a stark choice: Talk about having successfully ‘degraded Russian power’ in Ukraine and scale back its actions. Or risk a regional war with Russia that will engulf Europe.”

Europe, as the article notes, is on the brink of its own revolution, a rightwing ascension induced by the war’s social and political side effects:

Sanctions are hurting America’s European allies, not Russia… Discontent is growing, making it quite plausible that governments in Germany, France, and Great Britain will likely follow the path of their colleagues in Stockholm and Rome , who lost or will lose power to right-of-center coalitions.

You can add Sweden to that list. The Ukraine war may have the unexpected effect of cementing more rightwing nationalist governments in Europe. An equal and opposite affect.

🚀 On Thursday, the Russian Duma (their congress) held a meeting of the committee investigating Ukrainian bio-labs. Irina Yarovaya, Deputy Chairwoman of the State Duma, summarized the current findings from Russia’s point of view:

It has become clear that the Pentagon is working on secret plans of using tactical biological weapon of mass destruction. The Pentagon’s military biological activities violate the regime of non-proliferation of biological weapons and require the adoption of relevant measures at the international level.

Referencing documents and evidence that the Russians have collected from Ukrainian facilities, Yarovaya repeatedly stressed what is probably the most damning fact: the United States has not denied that any of the documents are authentic. To the contrary, Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland has equivocated about the purpose of the labs, refusing to tell our Congress that we have NOT been undertaking bio research there.

Instead, Yarovaya claimed that American officials are attempting to “distract attention by nuclear threats, while they are developing the most dangerous military-biological types of weapons of mass destruction.”

Here’s my take. It is inexcusable that American officials refuse to deny or otherwise come clean about the biolabs and the U.S. involvement in bioweapons research in Ukraine. Let me explain.

For the last 50 years, the threat of nuclear war has been successfully checked by the policy of “MAD” — mutually assured destruction. Nobody wants to start a nuclear war, because everyone loses.

But genetic editing offers the prospect of a new generation of targeted, untraceable weapons of mass destruction. International law bans this kind of research. If other governments somehow get the idea that the U.S. is ignoring international law precluding bioweapons development — hiding it behind the pathetic excuse of “pandemic preparedness,” say — then they will start doing the same thing.

They can’t afford to fall behind.

Because it is so hard to prove where a bio attack came from — just look at Wuhan — the current generation of bioweapons are inherently destabilizing. There’s no “MAD” for bioweapons, if you can’t prove who unleashed a pandemic, to know who to hit back. Bioweapons present the awful possibility of an unlimited arms race with no upper limit. Ever-escalating, tit-for-tat bioattacks can now be directly targeted at certain genetic or geographic populations.

See, e.g., monkeypox. Remember that one? The virus that never before had a mechanism for sexual transmission, which broke out simultaneously in a bunch of countries. Guess where it has hit hardest?

America’s ‘strategy’ — if you can call it that — of refusing to engage in the biolab discussion at all, and of trying to change the subject to nuclear threats, is an unforgivably reckless policy choice, in that it creates an information vacuum for Russia and other world actors to fill, and encourages people to interpret the U.S.’s silence as an admission.

Biden claimed his administration would be the most transparent in history. Time to put up or shut up.

👽 UFO News! The United States National Intelligence Manager for Aviation (NIM-A), which reports to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence, rolled out its new logo last week.

It has a UFO on it. See for yourself:

I don’t blame you for being skeptical. Here’s a link to the agency’s home page.

Don’t ask me. I did some searching for an explanation but couldn’t come up with anything that made sense except that military patches sometimes include fantastical elements. But, unless Chinese hackers took over the NIM-A website, this is the official agency LOGO. Not just a patch.

Does it mean that we have UFO’s in our arsenal? Are UFOs keeping a close eye on our high-tech sky fleet? Is it a joke of some kind?

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I report, you decide.

Have a magnificent Monday, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow for more.

THE C&C ARMY POST

I need to start preparing you guys for next week. After a two-year hiatus for a virus, the courts are finally back to holding jury trials. They were sidelined because jury trials can’t be effectively conducted over Zoom. Now my turn has come up, and one of my cases is going to trial next week, Tuesday through Friday.

Conducting a jury trial well is one of the most physically and mentally demanding parts of a litigator’s job. I’ve never done a jury trial while blogging before. I have no idea what kind of blogging time I’m going to have. I’m thinking it will be pretty thin, at best. But don’t worry! I’ll make it up to you guys on the back side, I promise.

WARNING: There are some relevant but unavoidable links in today’s post including some adult language (F-bombs) and some mildly offensive images (dancing bikini-clad females). Parental supervision is suggested for younger readers.

*COVID NEWS AND COMMENTARY*

Yesterday, Florida Voice ran a story headlined, “Supreme Court Grants DeSantis Request for Grand Jury to Investigate Human Smuggling from Southern Border.”

The article reported that DeSantis ask the Supreme Court to impanel a special statewide grand jury to investigate and prosecute people who are helping relocate illegal aliens into Florida. The order also authorizes investigation of a host of related offenses, including crimes involving narcotics, bribery, computer-related crimes, fraud, and money laundering.

Get ready.

It’s a brilliant strategy, and once again, Florida is leading, showing other states how to push back against the federal government’s scheme to drop aliens off all over the country.

“People coming illegally, a lot of them are trying to get here in the state of Florida,” DeSantis told reporters when he filed the petition. “This is something that absolutely affects us. The drugs that are coming in affect us.”AG Ashley Moody @AGAshleyMoodyEvery @JoeBiden administration decision and policy emboldens and monetarily incentivizes drug and trafficking cartels, but here in FL, @GovRonDeSantis took the bold step of requesting a grand jury to investigate and thwart these dangerous crimes. 📺: @FoxFriendsFirst June 24th 202218 Retweets75 Likes

Corporate media is going to lose its collective mind when arrests begin.

🔥 Columbian media outlet Cambio broke a story this week shedding a lot of light on vaccine “science.” On October 9, 2021, Pfizer splurged on a gala event on a yacht in Miami harbor attended by Colombian politicians, lobbyists, and Pfizer executives, billed as a lobbying event, since Pfizer “seeks to expand” its business in that country. I’ll let you decide for yourselves, but the “lobbying event” seems to me to be more of a sordid debauch than a “get to know you” reception.

The images broadcast by the media show practically naked young ladies cavorting and drinking alcohol along with Columbian presidential candidate Hernández, other politicians, lobbyists, and Pfizer executives. In the video, Hernández dances playfully with one young woman and, at another point can be seen whispering sweet nothings in another woman’s ear.

Hernández, the older gentleman in the video, is one of Colombia’s presidential candidates. According to Cambio’s intel, the young women and the yacht set Pfizer back ELEVEN MILLION DOLLARS. In other words, Pfizer paid $11M for ONE PARTY just for a CANDIDATE. That’s literally unimaginable. Try it. Try to imagine a lifestyle where you attend $11M yacht parties.

How much have they spent entertaining politicians overall, on ALL the parties?

Cambio also reported that its investigation showed Columbia overpaid a little for the Pfizer vaccine. A little meaning $375 MILLION DOLLARS. Plus, it agreed to give Pfizer blanket liability, meaning injured Columbians, whose tax dollars paid for the vaccines, now have no recourse against the pharmaceutical giant. Sorry!

My question is, how many of these “events” has Pfizer offered to other politicians in the name of “lobbying?” Isn’t this more of a sex bribe? How many politicians can really be bought off this cheaply?

There should be a formal investigation of all lobbying efforts related to the vaccines and to figure out how these international contracts were negotiated, at minimum. What has Pfizer “provided” to U.S. politicians? If we only had a government that wasn’t captured by pharmaceutical interests, we might find out the answers to these questions someday.

Maybe the Russians will do it.

🔥 Okay, this next story is absolutely bonkers. I PROMISE I am not making this up. Yesterday I told you about the J6 Committee’s newest star surprise witness, Cassidy Hutchinson, who testified among other things that President Trump tried to grab the steering wheel of the Presidential limousine to go fight at the Capitol.

Even though it was a facially laughable claim, and even though Hutchinson was testifying about hearsay — she wasn’t there herself — the Committee and corporate media credulously lapped it all up, for about ten seconds anyway, until people who WERE there, like Secret Service agents, started popping up with lawyers, ready to testify that it never happened. Whoops.

The story exploded on social media, and in one dramatic development, MSNBC was interviewing oily House Representative and Committee member Jamie Raskin when it appears somebody tells him something in his earpiece, and then he promptly hangs up on the interview. Bloop. Never seen THAT before.LoneStarHerd🇺🇸 @lonestarherdRep. Raskin appears to lose signal on MSNBC when asked about inconsistencies in Hutchinson’s testimony at the J6 Show Trial MSNBC: You’ve talked to the Secret Service agents in this story, Mr Ornato and Mr. Engel. Did that incident happen in the car? Jamie Raskin: *disappears* June 29th 202212 Retweets19 Likes

With me so far? It gets better. Next, remember how I told you a couple days ago about this anonymous online person or group named “Q” who had the corporate media in a tizzy this week because he’d reappeared after a long hiatus? And how the media’s over-reaction was making me think there might be something to this Q person after all?

Yesterday, the Cassidy Hutchinson story connected to the Q story in a giant shower of sparks. Bzzzzt!

So, early in the morning yesterday, before Cassidy’s testimony, the Q account posted a cryptic message mentioning her:

This is how badly Cassidy Hutchinson’s awful over-the-top testimony hurt the Committee: people began speculating that the former aide was actually a false-flag torpedo — a plant — designed to sink the Committee’s credibility battleship. That’s how awful the testimony’s fallout was.

And then the story got even crazier! It’s not just online Q fans speculating about Q knowing or predicting that Hutchinson was a plant. The House Committee emailed the guy who runs the online site where Q posts, Ron Watkins, asking him if he’d accept service of a subpoena:

So even the House Committee now suspects Q — whoever they are — might have known something, and more hilariously, even the House is wondering if Cassidy was a plant! Hahahahahaha!

Look: this is litigation 101. To avoid embarrassment, before you call a hearsay witness, do some basic due diligence to confirm their story.

I don’t know what is really going on, or who or what Q is, or how incompetent the J6 Committee could possibly be, although I could guess, but this is one of those stories that makes me wonder whether we’re actually living in a simulation and the bored night shift staff just got creative.

Correction Corner: This week, I unfairly discounted Q’s early predictions of arrests and prosecutions of an alleged elite international pedophile network. In fact there HAVE been arrests and prosecutions meeting that description: Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, and most recently, R Kelly. Plus, Epstein’s arrest does actually seem near-miraculous; after decades of bulletproof political protection, he was suddenly unprotected. How?

🔥 Anyway, if Cassidy’s story is actually true, if it DID really happen, it probably looked like this:NautPoso 🇮🇪☘️ @NautPoso@DonaldJTrumpJr It really happened June 30th 20222,515 Retweets7,310 Likes

🔥 MAILBAG: After I reported on the US-linked Armenian biolabs, and Russia’s related complaints, a commenter criticized me for credulously falling for former KGB-leader Vladimir Putin’s psyop, since Putin was just using the Armenian biolabs story as prop to attack America, or something. I’d like to set the record straight.

Bioweapons research is illegal, both internationally and within the U.S. It seems unlikely to me that there’s any good excuse for the U.S. to be building expensive, high-tech biolabs in all these unsecure third-world countries where laws aren’t well enforced and local officials are easily bribed. But maybe there IS a good excuse? IF SO LET’S HEAR IT.

What’s the excuse?

If Russia’s biolab complaints are in fact just a psyop, tell us WHY. If the labs are just innocent but misunderstood good-faith research outposts diligently toiling away in the third world to keep us safe in America, by studying bugs in remote places like Ukraine, Nicaragua, and Armenia, then just OPEN THE LABS.

Frankly, I would go, myself, but I’m guessing they wouldn’t even let me in the parking lot, much less the building. For safety or something.

If we really are acting in good faith, END THE MEDIA EMBARGO on the story. Sure, I get it, why repeat Russian propaganda? But the Russian propaganda is WORKING. It’s making us look terrible. Therefore ignoring the propaganda seems like a reckless strategy.

You know what would defuse the Russian propaganda? TRANSPARENCY.

Let’s see the contracts, the staffing, the inventories, the shipments. If the labs aren’t military, there’s no need for secrecy. If they ARE military, it looks a whole lot like either laws are being outright broken, or the government is exporting operations that would be illegal IN the United States to third world countries and remote areas where local folks are ill-equipped to resist.

Remote places like, say, Wuhan, China. And we all know what Book of Revelations-style fruit flowered from that innocent little research outpost. After Wuhan, the National Institutes of Health does NOT get the benefit of the doubt. They need to start showing their work. Like, now.

Maybe Russia has manifestly earned a lot of fair criticism. But sadly, we are in no place to criticize them, not until our own house is squeaky-clean. Russia is taking advantage of our real or apparent hypocrisy.

My vote is: dump the dissembling and start the scrubbing.

💉 Oh no! Poor Dr. Fauci. The nation’s Top Covid Doc recently came down with a symptomatic case of the virus, as you know. The old beagle torturer must have thought he was at risk, because he started taking Paxlovid. Now THIS happens. He just can’t catch a break.

The Hill ran a story yesterday headlined, “What Is COVID-19 ‘Rebound’? CDC Explains Phenomenon Affecting Fauci, Some Paxlovid Users.” Uh oh.

That’s right. Fauci fell victim to Paxlovid rebound, where people taking the miracle drug catch an even worse case of covid after seeming to improve for a few days. On the fourth day of his treatment using the safe and effective drug, Fauci tested positive AGAIN. He also began to experience worsening symptoms. “It was sort of what people are referring to as a ‘Paxlovid rebound,’” Fauci told reporters.

“Sort of.” And, it’s not a drug failure, dummies. It’s a “rebound.”

So what’s a covid expert like Fauci to do? There’s only one possible option, and he bravely accepted it. Fauci confirmed he is currently taking ANOTHER course of Paxlovid! Hahaha! Of course! If it doesn’t work the first time, do it MORE!

Fauci said Tuesday that he’s feeling “reasonably good,” but “not completely without symptoms.” For now, the 82-year-old bureaucrat has to stay home from work. The Hill reported Fauci will return to his job at the NIH once he tests negative for the virus.

So!

🔥 MonkeyPox Update! The latest figures show two countries with so many proportional Monkeypox cases they are clear outliers: Portugal, in second place, and Vatican City, in first.

Now, in fairness, Vatican City has a tiny population, so only a few cases would tilt it toward the high end of the proportional scale. But still. The Vatican. Don’t make me say it.

🚀 *THE MINORITY REPORT* 🚀

🚀 Ukrainian brothers and sisters, we tried to warn you. In a deeply-buried story earlier this month, Planet-Today ran an article headlined, “High-Ranking Ukrainian Officials Caught Splurging On Luxury Real Estate In Switzerland.”

So at least we know where some of that $60 billion we’ve sent to Ukraine so far is going. I bet the Swiss properties are nice, too. One of them sold for $9 million dollars.

I wonder if we could borrow it some weekend.

🚀 The Ukrainians have finally blown the Russians off tiny Snake Island, which media now reports is a “key” strategic location, a fact they completely failed to mention during the last two months of Russian occupation.

For its part, the Russian Ministry of Defense laughably said it voluntarily retreated in an act of “goodwill.”

🚀 The latest debate about whether Ukraine or Russia is worse involves a blown-up urban shopping mall in Kyiv that Ukraine says Russia deliberately targeted, and Russia says was right next to an ammo storage warehouse, which was the actual target, and the shopping mall just got caught in the explosion’s fallout.

Either way, at least SOME Ukrainians are starting to ask the right questions (warning- adult language):Brad Ruiters @braddo_ct◾A resident of Kremenchug asks an uncomfortable question to the mayor Vitaly Maletsky about the destroyed shopping mall allegedly hit by a Russian strike.

Clean version: whoever is to blame, why the heck would the moronic government of Ukraine store high-value ammo right next to a downtown shopping mall? Why not put it out in the country somewhere where explosions can’t hurt anybody? Dummies. They’re using their own citizens as human shields to protect their assets.

We feel you, Ukraine. Just look at Joe Biden.

Have a terrific Thursday and I’ll see you back here tomorrow.

We must prepare for war

Sir Patrick Sanders says we face ‘a 1937 moment’

Get this man some more tanks.

The war in Ukraine is not a brief and bloody spat in a faraway country of which we know little. Instead, as the new Chief of General Staff General Sir Patrick Sanders warned in a historic speech at RUSI today, “This is our 1937 moment,” as “we are living through a period in history as profound as the one that our forebears did over 80 years ago.”

The harsh reality is that “the visceral nature of a European land war is not just some manifestation of distant storm clouds on the horizon; we can see it now”.


As a result of major state-on-state conflict on our home continent, at a scale vastly beyond our current capacity to sustain, including artillery battles with “ammunition expenditure rates that would exhaust the combined stockpiles of several Nato countries in a matter of days”, Britain therefore has no choice but to rearm: “Mobilisation is now the main effort.”

As it stands, our Army is simply too small to confront Russia. As Sanders warns, “if this battle came, we would likely be outnumbered at the point of attack and fighting like hell”. The decades of cutbacks that have diminished our land forces must end, now: “it would be perverse if the CGS was advocating reducing the size of the Army as a land war rages in Europe and Putin’s territorial ambitions extend into the rest of the decade, and beyond Ukraine.”

Similarly, so much of the Whitehall commonsense of the past few decades must be discarded as unfit for the present threat: the excessive focus on cyber capabilities founders on the hard truth that “Land will still be the decisive domain… to put it bluntly, you can’t cyber your way across a river.”

The Army’s Just In Time system of vehicle fleet management, once heralded as the means to greater efficiency, is similarly exposed as unfit for wars of sheer mass, in which materiel is deployed and swiftly destroyed on an industrial scale. “Having seen its limitations first-hand as the Commander of the Field Army”, Sanders notes, “I think we need to ask ourselves whether Whole Fleet Management is the right model given the scale of the threat we face.” Instead, we must “re-build our stockpiles and review the deployability of our vehicle fleet”.

This isn’t an easy task: our industrial capacity must be ramped up immediately to meet the demands of modern high intensity warfare: “We can’t be lighting the factory furnaces across the nation on the eve of war; this effort must start now if we want to prevent war from happening”.

Similarly, our donation of munitions to Ukraine was necessary, and the Ukrainians are grateful for it, but it’s left us with a huge gap to fill now that war is on our doorstep, with Sanders warning of the urgent need to replenish “our own diminished stockpiles as a result of Gifting in Kind to the brave soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine”. Generosity that leaves us weaker is no help to anyone: every munition, every vehicle donated to Ukraine must be replaced many times over if Britain is to see itself through the coming decades.

And like Macron, and the more serious American strategic thinkers, Sanders warns that this is Europe’s war: “Given the commitments of the US in Asia during the Twenties and Thirties, I believe that the burden for conventional deterrence in Europe will fall increasingly to European members of Nato.”

American military aid is necessary now, but in the medium term it will be Europe’s job to safeguard Europe’s own security: the Americans will soon be distracted by their own great confrontation in the Pacific, and we must rely on ourselves to meet the great challenge ahead. As Sanders warns, “It will be hard work — a generational effort,” but “this is our moment. Seize it.” The warnings, and the advice, cannot be clearer: now it’s the government’s turn to show that it can meet the challenge of the troubled years rushing towards all of us.

Concerned Graduates of West Point Challenge Leadership of Military Academy

The Epoch Times, June 27, 2022, By Enrico Trigoso

Three retired U.S. military officers—LTG Thomas McInerney, USAF; MG Paul Vallely, U.S. Army; and Colonel Andrew O’Meara Jr., U.S. Army—signed a letter authored by “Concerned Graduates of West Point and The Long Gray Line,” protesting against mandatory vaccinations, CRT classes, sanitary conditions, progressive political activism, and other “woke actions,” in the military academy.

“The Long Gray Line” refers to the continuum of graduates United States Military Academy at West Point, New York.

“We wanted to challenge the leadership of the Academy and the Defense Dept on their WOKE actions, CRT, Diversity training and the other discrepancies in the Academy. We found it pervasive at the Naval and Air Force Academies so we knew it was directed from the highest levels of our Military Leadership,” Vallely told The Epoch Times.

“We all want the Military to get back on track to training and leading our Armed Forces to secure America and its Citizens,” Vallely, who has been sounding the alarm against a socialist takeover of the United States, added.

The letter, titled “Declaration of Betrayal of West Point And the Long Gray Line,” asks for the following information:

  1. An explanation for the irregularities in the enforcement of the Honor Code.
  2. A justification for the mandatory vaccinations of cadets with the COVID Virus despite widespread adverse reactions to the inoculation, as well as provisions for exceptions for cadets with religious objections.
  3. An explanation for teaching Critical Race Theory at the Academy that constitutes an attack upon the Constitution and our constitutional Republic. This is behavior that constitutes unconstitutional conduct, if not sedition.
  4. An explanation of reported mismanagement of the cadet dining facility resulting in unsanitary conditions, inadequate food prepared for the meal, and food served that was reportedly unfit for consumption.
  5. Political activism on the part of civilian faculty members constituting political activity violating the long-standing policy of the Academy and Army Regulations.
  6. The practice of exclusive reliance upon radical progressive guest speakers to address the Corps of Cadets. This practice results in prejudiced political activism on the part of the Staff and Faculty in violation of Army Regulations.
  7. An explanation for the failure of the Superintendent to respond to correspondence inquiring about problems identified at the Academy.

Endangering the Mission

They believe that there is a rejection of the principles of the military academy which could endanger its original mission “to educate, train, and inspire the Corps of Cadets so that each graduate is a commissioned leader of character committed to the values of Duty, Honor, Country and prepared for a career of professional excellence and service to the Nation as an officer in the United States Army.”

They sent the letter in the hopes that authorities take heed of their advice regarding the problems that they have spotted.

The letter was sent to the Superintendent of the Academy as well as the President and Directors of the Association of Graduates (AOG), alleging that the West Point Academy is “conducting business in a manner that ignores time-honored principles of the Academy, Constitutional Law, and our sworn oath of office.”

“When you take away to teach a critical race theory and communist ideology, you’re taking away from the time that could be used for learning how to shoot better, how to operate airplanes better, take care of airplanes through maintenance; and even within the medical corps of the armed forces, it has affected many the doctors and nurses. So it’s a terrible thing. They need to stop it right now. They need to stop enforcing the mandates,” Vallely recently told The Epoch Times.

Vaccine Mandate Deadline

As the June 30 deadline nears for compliance with the U.S. military’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate, U.S. Army officials publicly claim a very small percentage of its members are unvaccinated, reporting 96 percent or more of its members are fully vaccinated.

However, the Army’s vaccination rate could be far lower than 96 percent, an anonymous active-duty senior Army official told The Defender.

The Epoch Times reached out to West Point Public Affairs for comment.
