With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
Gen. David Berger, commandant of the Marine Corps, said during an interview on Friday that the smallest US military force has plans for a massive overhaul within the service designed to focus on diversity and “to reflect America.”
What’s driving the cultural shift is for the US Marine Corps “to reflect America, to reflect the society we come from,” Berger told NPR’s Morning Edition . The core of America’s strength lies in its diversity, Berger said, according to the media outlet’s reporting, claiming that the same is true for the US military.
It’s not a matter of being politically correct or “woke,” Berger claimed, amid accusations that the US armed forces are pandering to the left’s demands.
A recruitment ad from the US Army featured progressive subjects meant to be “shattering stereotypes” among America’s service members. Meanwhile, the US Navy announced “Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity” plans . A scathing report commissioned by congressional members found that the US Navy is in disarray by prioritizing diversity over its warfighting capabilities amid Chinese aggression .
Currently, the Marine Corps has an issue with high turnover and retaining numbers. About 75 percent of troops leave the Marine Corps at the end of their four-year term, the highest turnover rate among the military services.
The top general is pushing his new plan , titled “Talent Management 2030,” which outlines new measures that the Marine Corps hope will help bolster recruitment efforts and greatly increase the average length of service.
Berger also argued during the interview the importance of focusing on education and technical abilities in today’s cyber warfare age, to help keep pace with an increasingly digital world, with its resulting digital challenges .
“Our advantage militarily is on top of our shoulders. It’s not actually our equipment. We are better than anybody else, primarily because we don’t all think exactly alike . We didn’t come from the same backgrounds,” Berger said.
“The capabilities that we think we’re going to need are a force that’s able to operate much more distributed, much more spread out than perhaps we’re accustomed to in the past, using a different set of technologies than we […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
