Obama’s ‘Diversity’ Mandates Put ‘Progressive’ Agenda over National Security

Dec. 5, 2015 "A rare moment of weekend laughter with the President's key national security aides, from left, National Security Advisor Susan E. Rice, Homeland Security Advisor Lisa Monaco, and Deputy National Security Avril Haines as they joke about a cartoon in the New Yorker that resembled the three women."

Who wouldn’t feel safe with this diverse group taking point on national security? (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)

“President Obama released a Memorandum to promote diversity in the national security workforce,” National Security Advisor Susan Rice announced Wednesday. “This is why that makes us safer and stronger.”

Rice’s ”why” is long on self-serving blather and short on “how.” She touches on “building an international order” with the UN, fighting Ebola in West Africa and pushing the transfer of wealth via “climate change” treaty (that has not been ratified by the Senate).

But the talking point to accept and repeat without question is that “our diversity” is “what makes us truly exceptional.” If you’re an Opposite Day “progressive” dependent on “divide and conquer” tactics to rally favored demographics and marginalize others, what better way to do it than with a reverse “E Unum Pluribus” motto?

And since platitudes and PR-speak do nothing in the way of proving a claim, Rice instead enlists fellow henchmen to tell us what great improvements can be made to providing for the common defense and insuring domestic tranquility by including alien cultures and “progressive values” into the national security mix.

We can start with Rice’s qualifications, aside from a career at the diversity trough starting in the Clinton administration.  Perhaps there is no more telling testament to either her competence or her willingness to parrot a lie for political CYA than her embarrassing public insistence that the Benghazi attacks were attributable to that stupid You Tube Mohammed video.

Rice is bolstered by Secretary of defense Ash Carter, whose primary focus appears to be “transgendering” the military.  They’re joined by Secretary of State John Kerry of publicly throwing away somebody’s service ribbons fame.

Adding their voices to the diversity chorus: Attorney General Loretta “turn a blind eye to Hillary’s crimes” Lynch; Director of National Intelligence James Clapper (who gave false testimony to Congress about spying on Americans); and CIA Director John Brennan, who has admitted to voting for a Communist and who may or may not have converted to Islam.

Is everybody feeling the strength of our diversity yet?

The Rice/White House announcement intentionally dovetails with the U.S. Department of Justice Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s just-released “Advancing Diversity in Law Enforcement” report. CNSNews.com has a good summary of the DOJ report I’d encourage you to read and share.

“[I]ncreased diversity within law enforcement agencies – defined not only in terms of race and gender, but also other characteristics including religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, language ability, background, and experience – serves as a critically important tool to build trust with communities,” we are assured.  But there’s a problem with the way we do things now.

“Many of the selection devices used to screen applicants, including physical ability and cognitive tests examinations and background checks, have been shown to have an unwarranted disproportionate impact on underrepresented populations,” we’re told. Physical and mental standards, and disqualifiers based on past criminal convictions, are just not conducive to promoting that diversity we need to make us all safer.

“Residency and citizenship requirements may limit certain underrepresented communities’ representation in law enforcement agencies,” the DOJ report cautions. “[T]his requirement may prevent a considerable number of racial and ethnic minorities – many of whom have valuable foreign language skills – from being hired by law enforcement agencies.”

Hey, who needs UN blue helmets when you can give a criminal pathway to citizenship foreigner who can’t pass qualification tests – but will follow orders – a badge? Now that would be diverse! And it ought to fit in neatly with the globalist Strong Cities Network agenda.

And if we really want to be “progressive,” we’ll need to let our new diversity hires choose their gender neutral pronouns (and ticket citizens for not getting them right), take a knee during the national anthem, and refuse to take an oath to a Constitution written by patriarchal slaveholders. As a matter of fact, forget Article VI: Asking them to do that last bit is not only a microagression, it’s an act of racist oppression and workplace harassment that should be cause for an ACLU lawsuit. Right?

This is all part of that “fundamental transformation of America” Obama has been promising us/threatening us with since Day One of his administration. “Diversity” as a source of strength, or at least of power, is something Hillary intends to amp up with a vengeance once she slithers her way into the White House.

Domestic enemies have no interest in “the security of a free State” except to undermine it.

    I have to wonder how Ms. Rice sees us ‘building an international order’ through diversity when most nations still kill LGBT people, and when in so many nations “women’s rights” is just some shit Americans talk about? I’d love to see the project plan for that pie in the sky.

    Obama’s agenda has always come first, and national security doesn’t particularly concern him. His goal is to turn this country into a third-world, Marxist police-state, and he’s made more progress toward it than anyone could imagine.

    No amount of RTI will reach these new “diverse” LEOs. They not only will not live up to their oath to our Constitution, they won’t even know what that Constitution is. This will result in our having to target LEOs if the SHTF. How will we know which LEOs are valued defenders of the Constitution, and which ones are nothing more than “diversity” traitors and trash?

      We will know to the extent of our local relationship-building. There is no other way. We know that most rank and file are with us. We will only know individually mano-a-mano, eye-to-eye. CPT baby! Build it and they will come!

    After considering the sad state of our once-great nation, concerning the deplorable leadership, the completely evil degradation of our society, and the overwhelming number of negative views, stories, and opinions expressed in your current web site as well as many others, I can only summarize the current state of affairs as follows: Many web sites talk about when, not if, the SHTF in the future….wake up people, THE S HAS ALREAD HTF and we all just slept through it.

    This is a very bad idea. I have a story that fits into this…

    Years ago when I was in the military working as a base network admin, I was on call 24/7. I was also a member of a regional computer emergency response team (CERT). We were on-call as well. There was a TON of additional and specialized training requirements to be on this team. In the pecking order of high priority fix-it-now calls, I was #1.

    Anyways..
    I received a call one night around 2300.. The caller stated he worked for DOD NOC and that I was required to go in and open up and allow several subnets through the core router and firewall. That part did not bother me. It was the voice that made me say NO. Caller ID (but caller ID can be spoofed) said this guy was legit but the voice did not. It was heavily accented arabic. I told him I did not trust his directive and to have the OIC call me back. I received no call back.

    The next morning, I received a call from the NOC that had called the night before. The OIC asked why I did not follow the directive. “The guy on the other end sounded like a haji and there was no way I was going to do anything without verification from NOC OIC.” The officer on the other end explained that the man who had called the night before was a SAIC contractor who was from Pakistan and worked for DOD. I asked the OIC “why are we at war with Arabs, and yet you hire Arabs to work on the DOD network?!?”. I told him next time I get a late night call from the NOC, it better be a American, otherwise I’m hanging up and going back to sleep. After that, I only received calls from Americans working at the NOC. I guess I was not the only one that hung up on their cheap overseas labor.

    “Diversity” is the sanitized name for “affirmative action”. Promoting unqualified people for the sake of “diversity” is not making us safer and stronger. It’s dangerous. Would you want to go to a doctor who only got his/her degree to meet some “diversity” quota? I know I wouldn’t. This pushing diversity is destroying America. Instead of promoting qualified people, you’re promoting idiots because they fit some agenda being pushed by a communist, Muslim, Kenyan.

    It’s to destroy the last remnants of western culture. The term diversity is commie speak, that raises up one hate group to rule over another. Eventually tensions will flair up within all groups and fighting starts and morphs into civil wars, and of course the end game is world war, which the elites will sit back and let us all fight for them, and they are the winners in the end.
