Pentagon Going ‘Green?’

US Department of Defense

Joe Biden’s new infrastructure plan will spend billions on the Pentagon. However, this will not be for national security purposes, but to make it greener.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

Ray Mabus, a former Navy secretary and climate change advocate, said the Department of Defense could lead the way on environmental policies for years to come.

“Moving off fossil fuels into renewables will have first just the direct effect of reducing the carbon footprint dramatically,” Mabus told Politico. “Where the military goes, the civilian world often follows,” he added, noting that electric vehicles “could catalyze an industry that will have those impacts more widely.”

Mabus oversaw the Navy’s first attempt at transitioning to renewable energy by incorporating biofuel into the fleet, a plan which raised costs at the expense of readiness and was relentlessly attacked by congressional Republicans as wasteful.

Critics told the Washington Free Beacon in November that if Biden’s Pentagon leans hard into green policies, it could harm national security. Many of America’s most important forward positions face a readiness problem, and simulations project U.S. forces losing in the event of a Chinese invasion of Taiwan.

Republican Rob Whittman(R – Va.) claimed that the Biden administration is failing to strengthen the current pentagon against the Chinese threat and is instead focusing on green technology.

Sure get electric vehicles for the military, I guess Biden will put in charging stations in the flea bag nations where wars are more common.

Although I upvoted your post, what I personally believe is that bideN is consciously, intentionally, deliberately and maliciously trying to CASTRATE our military, so that he can score points and rewards from his buddies in the Globalist CABAL.

I wonder what more idiotic ideas will come out of the B…… Presidency, before we shut it down? This is approaching high risk and totally ignores the security of the Nation. Oh well, the Southern Border is their idea of security, what else would you expect, AOC as our new Secretary of Defense? Run all that mechanical hardware on sunshine, Russia and China are smiling from ear to ear.

Wow, democrats sure are doing their best to bring this country to it’s knees. What is it going to take to get “real” Americans leading this country again and how soon can we make it happen? Revolution or civil war is in the air. Remember, this is the party that wants to unify the country by only allowing their narratives to be heard.

The country is already to it’s knees by the passing of the Federal Reserve Act. They will chop it’s head off with the taking up guns.

General, we are outnumbered by the number of tanks the Americans have coming at us. Sergeant, it’s been cloudy and no wind all day. Let’s just keep pulling back another two miles and wait. But sir, they will overtake us. Sergeant, by my calculation, the tanks batteries will be dead and we can destroy them at will. Three hours later. General, you were right! They just gave up when we started shooting since none of their armor worked. Good sergeant. Now we can ship their tanks back to our factories and convert them to turbine engines.

It is long overdue for us to stop thinking that, and saying that, bideN is doing what he’s doing out of ineptitude and ignorance (although he DOES exhibit plenty of both) and to arrive at the insight that he is a half-dead zombie puppet of the Globalist CABAL. His ineptitude actually suits him very well for his role as a puppet. Having no mind of his own (which would involve having a CONSCIENCE) makes him very predictable and easy to handle for his handlers.

Now lessee- Obama went with $59/gal jet fuel for the Navy while the Services RAN OUT OF AMMUNITION! The Military’s job is to break things so that our enemies can’t use them against us; NOT to conduct “green experiments” at the expense of readiness!

Has anyone thought for a minute how you are going to recharge a military vehicle in the middle of a battle and the length of time it will take to recharge a vehicle??? This has got to be the dumbest idea that I have ever heard. A great way to get our soldiers killed.

Explain to me how you intend to maintain a strong military while using renewable energy. I just can not vision a battery operated F22 in a dog fight. Talk about stupid, tossing aside plentiful dependable energy sources for a whim? I don’t think so…the plan is to weaken our military for an easy takeover by the New World Order.
