Military.com: Space Force CO Who Got Holiday Call from Trump Fired Over Comments Decrying Marxism in the Military 

A commander of a U.S. Space Force unit tasked with detecting ballistic missile launches has been fired for comments made during a podcast promoting his new book, which claims Marxist ideologies are becoming prevalent in the United States military. 

Lt Col. Matthew Lohmeier, commander of 11th Space Warning Squadron at Buckley Air Force Base, Colorado, was relieved from his post Friday by Lt. Gen. Stephen Whiting, the head of Space Operations Command, over a loss of confidence in his ability to lead, Military.com has exclusively learned. 

"This decision was based on public comments made by Lt. Col. Lohmeier in a recent podcast," a Space Force spokesperson said in an email. 

"Lt. Gen. Whiting has initiated a Command Directed Investigation on whether these comments constituted prohibited partisan political activity." Lohmeier's temporary assignment in the wake of his removal was not immediately clear.

Update: Space Force commander fired after comments made on conservative podcast (CNN) 

WNU Editor: The political environment in the U.S. military has definitely changed in the past few months. If President Trump was still President, Lt Col. Matthew Lohmeier would not have been fired.

We are witnessing a Soviet-type political breakdown in all government bodies. The United States is changing its nature.

Marxists do what Marxists do. At this point is may just be well and good to purge the US Military of warriors and patriots. Keep it populated with mental defectives and grievance professionals.

It'll make the machine that much easier to destroy when the tenant government turn it on US citizens.

China and Russia are aggressively raising their stakes against Taiwan and Ukraine. Why? Just take a sober view of Biden's America, at war with itself. China and Russia came to a pragmatic conclusion: America in 2021 has neither the desire nor the courage nor the political will to protect itself and its allies.

It was under Biden that the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline work continued. It was under Biden that the preparations for the seizure of Taiwan by China entered the final phase. Under Biden, China's seizure of the South China Sea, suspended by Trump, is close to completion. Under Biden, both Russia and China decided on something that was simply unthinkable under Trump — they forced preparations for open aggression against neighbors.

Trump, at the end of a dinner with the Chinese leader, three months into his presidency, fired 60 Tomahawk missiles at Syria. Everything was organized so no one doubted that the missiles were intended for China and Russia's leaders, although they were fired into Syria. A year later, in February 2018, a platoon of American Rangers defeated a battalion tactical group of Russian mercenaries in Syria. Of the 500 people, few survived, and all 27 tanks and armored vehicles were destroyed in a four-hour battle.

Both China and Russia immediately realized that, with Trump, the guy who brought down a billion dollars' worth of missiles while sweets were being served, it was necessary to remain within the bounds of decency. Under Biden, no one is going to remain within these bounds. On the contrary, Beijing and Moscow are well aware that Biden is a temporary, accidental person in the White House, and it is necessary to strike while the iron is hot. Under Biden, Beijing's and Moscow's expansionist plans are destined to come true.

Insult is not a well founded though. You have the right to disagree, but you make yourself small with just a single insult.
Sorry, but RussInSoCal has the right to have his word, like it or not.

Russel the unrelenting speaks how many of us feel in this environment. Said it before personally I didn’t like the orange goon but least he had a pair, along with sound mind and quite reasonable judgment from his administration.yes he fuckd up quite often but anyone with high stamina is like this, get over it. Every mofo on earth has had a go at him with sideways eyes- and now bam bam is back bouncing around our screens with that big jerk off smile trying to create a pussy whipped bitch environment. All we need is another lecture from michelle can’t wait for that...

Frankfurt School theoreticians Herbert Marcuse, Theodor Adorno, Walter Benjamin, Erich Fromm, and Max Horkheimer begat critical theory.

Critical theory begat critical legal studies, which begat Critical Race Theory.

Herbert Marcuse, Theodor Adorno, Walter Benjamin, Erich Fromm, and Max Horkheimer were communists.


Lt. Gen. Whiting should be in prison awaiting a court martial for capital offenses.

Lt. Gen. Stephen Whiting is an un-American Obama general and needs to be removed from the US military before he can cause more damage.

Russia: Trump Has Sanctioned Us More in Three Years than Obama in Eight


CNN Finally Admits Trump Was Very Tough on Russia but Lays the Groundwork for More Lies in the Process

"The Trump Administration was pretty tough on the Russians. They armed Ukraine; they armed the Poles. They extended NATO operations and exercises in ways that even the Obama Administration had not done. They maintained the sanctions. So I don’t think it will be that different.” - Fareed Zakaria


Ended the Open Skies Treaty
Sold Patriot missiles to Poland
Tanks in Estonia
War ships in the Black Sea (Remember baby Biden ran, ran away)
Forced Russian media (RT & Sputnik) to register as foreign agents
Threw out Russian diplomats
Trained Polish and Latvian fighters “to resist Russian aggression
Refused to recognize Crimea as part of the Russian Federation


"Trump agreed to send more forces to Poland to defend it against Russia."

"U.S. President Donald Trump agreed to deploy approximately 1,000 additional U.S. troops to Poland during a meeting with Polish President Andrzej Duda on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in New York City, Reuters reported Sept. 23, 2019"
Reported by Reuters, so the idiot may not have seen it.

Attacked Russian gas interests (Have you seen President Puppet cause much of a fuss about it?)
"Trump threatened sanctions over Merkel’s continued support for a gas pipeline from Russia"

Trump administration rolls out new sanctions over Russian occupation of Crimea

Not CONgress, but the Trump Administration

“I’ve lost count already, trying to sum up the number of decisions made by both the Obama and the Trump Administrations. The Trump Administration, by the way, has already long surpassed Obama’s by the sheer amount of persons and legal entities covered by these decisions,”

- Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov
