Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
I am looking forward to Peter Robinson’s interview of the Secretary of Defense. Peter’s a skilled interviewer, but I have suggested questions about social engineering and wonder what issues other Ricochetti would like raised. Here are my questions:
Some Obama social engineering initiatives have not been reversed under Sec. Mattis. Does he plan to take action on these issues which affect military preparedness? For example, transgender surgery is extremely expensive, makes a person unable to serve for a long time, and has severe negative long-term consequences.
The Obama administration, over the opposition of the wives of servicemen, put women on submarines. Is Sec. Mattis reviewing that? Similarly, standards have been reduced to encourage women to join elite troop units such as rangers. Will Sec. Mattis ensure that proper physical standards will be maintained. So far, it seems to me that nothing is being done in these important areas.Published in
