President Donald Trump nominated General James Mattis to become his Secretary of Defense for a good reason, he someone to be respected.
Respect is something Barack Obama never got from Americans because he was so anti-patriotic it wasn’t even funny. That goes for the men and women he appointed under his two presidential terms.
Those same appointments are hampering Mattis from taking care of our military in a way that they can do their jobs. Democrats are holding up progress, and something is going to have to come to a head real soon, or it could get ugly.
From Daily Caller:
Holdovers from the Obama administration in the Pentagon are hampering efforts to fix the military’s major readiness problem, leaving Secretary of Defense James Mattis alone in his efforts to properly equip U.S. forces, according to the chairman of the House Committee on Armed Services.
“I am concerned that … to fix these problems [it] is going to take a lot more money, and yet a lot of the folks who are coming up with the budget to fix them are the same people who have been fighting every step of the way against our efforts to fix these problems,” said Chairman Mac Thornberry during a Capitol Hill press gaggle Thursday.
Thornberry noted that Mattis is “alone” in his attempts to alleviate the readiness problem at the Pentagon. He added that there are some people, including “political appointees and others from the Obama administration,” who have been “trying to deny there was a problem.”
The Vice Joint Chiefs of Staff warned the armed services committee last week that the lack of military readiness across all branches was putting the military’s capabilities at risk.
