Army Secretary Pledges Transformative Change

The United States Army fell more than 15,000 recruits short of its target of 60,000 last year, yet the Biden administration is doing nothing to solve the crisis. Instead, it is looking for ways to exclude some of its best applicants.

In comments published by the Wall Street Journal on June 30, Army Secretary Christine Wormuth noted that she was drafting a recruiting overhaul so sweeping that it might require congressional approval. She did not specify much else about her plans except that they were designed to draw in people who have no real connection to the military so that America did not develop a “warrior class.”

New recruits: There are sixth- and seventh-generation military families in America who have fought for this country since the War of Independence. Most of these families are patriotic and conservative, so they don’t fit the military’s new “woke” agenda.

That is why the Biden administration is deploying recruiters to communities across the country based on demographics, ethnicity, race and gender. Modern military recruiters are more concerned about having an ethnically and sexually diverse fighting force than they are about finding warriors.

Leadership vacuum: Isaiah foretold a leadership vacuum in end-time Israel (comprised of America, Britain and the Jewish nation in the Middle East). “For, behold, the Lord, the Lord of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water, The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient, The captain of fifty, and the honourable man, and the counsellor, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator” (Isaiah 3:1-3).

This prophecy describes a time when America is deprived of the “mighty man,” the “man of war” and “the captain of fifty.” Instead of warriors and generals, the military is filled with women, effeminate men and childish leaders. This lack of genuine leadership makes the mightiest military in history vulnerable to annihilation by engendering strife and opening the door to attack.
