This is what happens when politicians in uniform are in charge

The Pentagon is ordering the top brass to incorporate climate change into virtually everything they do, from testing weapons to training troops to war planning to joint exercises with allies.
“The climate does change over great periods of time, typically measured in millennia, though sometimes in centuries,” he said. “But the document mentions accounting for such down to the level of changes in ‘tactics, techniques and procedures’ as if reviewing how a squad conducts a patrol should be accorded the same level of importance and attention as determining whether the naval base at Norfolk, Virginia, might have to be relocated as sea levels rise over the next 100 years.”
Which also brings up: does Obama actually believe this crap, or is this just one more way to trash the US Military?

I found it all deeply dispiriting. “Racial understanding” sounds nice; it's always good to be understanding, right? Yet the logic of it strikes me as dire. It rehabilitates, in politically correct lingo, the belief that skin color is more important than what lies beneath.

Indeed, some university administrators now actively encourage their students to be color-conscious rather than colorblind.
Of course; progressives usually are racists.

Yeah, this IS what they think of us.
Terry Shumaker, former U.S. ambassador to Trinidad (I wonder what that gig cost him) and current abject minion in the service of Mrs. Clinton, quotes Herself telling an audience in New Hampshire: “Service is the rent we pay for living in this great country.”

There is a very old English word for people who are required to perform service as a rent for their existence, and that word is serf. Serfdom is a form of bondage.
With themselves as the benevolent lords controlling us.

I saw that feature on the military and Climate change too. I commented on it already here:

Saw this coming back in high school (25! years ago) when I started hearing about some schools starting to *require* a certain number of hours of 'volunteer' work (read: Community Service) in order to receive their diploma.

I am not "incompetent". I am destroying America more quickly than anyone thought possible.
I am not "in over my head." I am advancing totalitarianism right under your noses.
I am not "stupid". The "stupid" are those who fail to see the danger I bring.
I am not "failing". I am succeeding at every goal I have set.

I am embracing your enemies and rejecting your friends.
I am acting lawlessly and unconstitutionally.
I am ignoring your Constitution.
I am disobeying your laws.

Your media is abetting me.
Your Congress is not stopping me.
Those sworn to defend your Constitution are not removing me.

I am "fundamentally transforming the United States of America."
Your Constitution, liberty, freedom, wealth, future and children are no longer at risk...the risk is past; they already are lost.
