US Military Strength At Its Lowest in Over 80 Years


I’m not sure this is the time to have a weak military.

With all thats going on, we should strive to have the strongest.

Not sure I can blame those refusing to join, though.

The military is a different place now than it was just a few short years ago.

Would you want to join?

And be forced to take the experimental jab?

They stopped that one year ago but they still enforce other jabs.

And after all we’ve experienced these three plus years, there’s a rising number of those that don’t trust Big Pharma and are now fully against all innoculations.

Not to mention all the DEI they’re still pushing.

Fox News reports:

For the second consecutive year, a study has ranked the U.S. military as “weak” and warned that a lack of action could leave the armed forces incapable of defending vital American interests.

“The current U.S. military force is at significant risk of being unable to meet the demands of a single major regional conflict while also attending to various presence and engagement activities,” reads the conclusion of the Heritage Foundation’s 10th annual Index of Military Strength, which was released Wednesday.

The report paints a dire picture of the state of the U.S. military, with its current posture being rated at “weak” by the index for the second consecutive year, calling into question America’s ability to meet security obligations and protect vital national interests around the globe.

The 664-page report addresses a wide range of issues, finding that almost no branch of the U.S. military is ready to face a major conflict. Those issues are most pronounced in the Air Force, which the index rated as “very weak” in 2023.

In just two years, the active-duty Army has shrunk from 485,000 to only 452,000 troops,” Greenway said. “This directly impacts both readiness and effectiveness as the Army is unable to fully man its formations. The recruitment shortfalls caused the Army to cut ‘end strength’ by 12,000 in [fiscal] 2023. This is unsustainable.”

According to Heritage Foundation analyst for defense budgeting Wilson Beaver, “The present recruiting crisis resulted in a shortfall of 41,000 in 2023 and is the worst in our nation’s history. If left unaddressed, it threatens the ability of the all-volunteer force to protect us. Rather than emphasizing merit and performance, President Biden and the senior leaders he has appointed choose to focus on the race and gender of candidates, attempting to use the military to promote their ideology.”

But America isn’t alone in this. Same thing is occuring over in the U.K.

And for fun, here’s two of their war ships colliding into each other less than one week ago.

Military these days looks like a skit from Monty Python.

Notice it’s mentioned “catastrophically low military recruitment”.

Surely someone can help solve the mystery of low recruitment.

Maybe we need to DITCH THE WOKE and go back to this?

Just sayin….

U.S. Marines Sing “Days of Elijah” At Camp Pendleton

I just came across this again myself and I always love seeing it so I thought I would share it with you all.

And it seemed like a really good time to post this.

I’m tired of picking sides in never-ending wars, anyone else?

I’m tired of sending my tax dollars to every country in the world except to actually help the United States!

So I’m going to keep my focus on two things: (1) God and (2) America protecting America only.

And that’s it.

Seem fair?

And this video hits on both for me, so I think you might enjoy it as well.

Somehow this just feels like an older, simpler time.

And I think it’s going to absolutely lift your spirits!

I love this video, and judging by all the likes and comments, I know you do too.

So as we head into an incredible moment in our nation’s history, I thought it was a great time to post this again.

Please enjoy this from Rumble:

Full Lyrics:

“Days Of Elijah”

These are the days of Elijah
Declaring the word of the Lord, yeah
And these are the days of Your servant, Moses
Righteousness being restored

These are the days of great trials
Of famine and darkness and sword
Still we are the voice in the desert crying
Prepare ye the way of the Lord!

Say, behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun, at the trumpet’s call
Lift your voice, (it’s) the year of Jubilee
Out of Zion’s hill, salvation comes

And these are the days of Ezekiel
The dry bones becoming as flesh
And these are the days of Your servant, David
Rebuilding the temple of praise

And these are the days of the harvest
The fields are all white in the world
And we are the laborers that are in Your vineyard
Declaring the Word of the Lord

Say, behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun at the trumpet’s call
Lift your voice, (it’s) the year of Jubilee
Out of Zion’s hill, salvation comes

Behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun at the trumpet’s call
Lift your voice, (it’s) the year of Jubilee
Out of Zion’s hill, salvation comes

There’s no God like Jehovah!
There’s no God like Jehovah!
There’s no God like Jehovah!
There’s no God like Jehovah!

There’s no God like Jehovah!
There’s no God like Jehovah!
There’s no God like Jehovah!
There’s no God like Jehovah!

There’s no God like Jehovah!
There’s no God like Jehovah!
There’s no God like Jehovah!
There’s no God like Jehovah!

There’s no God like Jehovah!
There’s no God like Jehovah!
There’s no God like Jehovah!
There’s no God like Jehovah!

There’s no God like Jehovah!
There’s no God like Jehovah!
There’s no God like Jehovah!
There’s no God like Jehovah!

There’s no God like Jehovah!
There’s no God like Jehovah!
There’s no God like Jehovah!
There’s no God like Jehovah!

Behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun, at the trumpet’s call
Lift your voice, (it’s) the year of Jubilee
Out of Zion’s hill, salvation comes

Behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun, at the trumpet’s call
Lift your voice, (it’s) the year of Jubilee
Out of Zion’s hill, salvation comes

And if you’ve ever wondered the backstory of how this video came to take place, I have it for you!

Courtesy of CountryThangDaily, here is the history:

“Days of Elijah” is a worship song based on Psalm 91. When I came across it being sung by a group of American Marines, I knew we had to feature it. It involves marines based at Camp Pendleton in California.

These incredible marines have dedicated their lives to protecting our country. And these guys know to turn the Lord of all during the toughest times.

The men, who wave their hands in unison sporadically and shout, “Oorah!” as they sing the praise and worship song, were apparently gathered over the weekend for a Christian service at the California military installation. So, seeing these Marines come together to praise the Lord in a song with ‘Days Of Elijah’ was truly inspirational!

The video was posted by Merrie Pardee Baldwin to her Facebook page. Merrie attends Arbor Christian Fellowship in Lake Forest, California. She and her husband Jim volunteer every second Sunday for worship services at Camp Pendleton. The video was taken during the service held on Sunday, September 14, 2014.

Days of Elijah
In the mid-90s Robin Mark wrote and recorded a song that would make him as well-known in the churches of the United States as he already was in the U.K. The Belfast, Northern Ireland native believes that the Old Testament stories are as relevant today in what they can teach us as they were when they were experienced and, subsequently, first told.
“Days of Elijah” have become a favorite for many churches. It is also a song of hope and courage.

When we understand the meaning of the song, “Days of Elijah,” we are encouraged as Christians to celebrate. The song shows us that prophecies about Christ and God’s people have been fulfilled across hundreds of years. The Christ — who was born in Bethlehem is coming again – – this time “riding on the clouds at the trumpet’s sound.” Christians above all other groups of people have a reason to celebrate.
