Biden Could Possibly Pick Country’s First Female Defense Secretary, Could Force Her To Shrink DOD



Michele Flournoy once served as the under secretary of defense for policy during the Obama administration, calling at that time for yearly increases to the defense budget of three to five percent.

However, if new reports are true, if Biden is certified officially as the next president, he might be picking Flournoy to be the first female secretary of defense and will have a whole let less budget to work with.

Trending: Trump Drops Blistering Statement Scorching Biden for Being Weak On the Border

“Secretary Flournoy could easily be secretary of defense,” Brookings Institution security expert Michael O’Hanlon told the Washington Examiner Monday.

“I have to believe she’s the odds-on favorite,” said O’Hanlon, who described himself as a “minor” adviser to the Biden campaign this summer but without direct knowledge of Biden’s current thoughts.

Flournoy is well respected in defense circles and served on the independent commission that helped formulate the 2018 National Defense Strategy that guided recently sacked Trump Defense Secretary Mark Esper. She also served as the chief adviser to the secretary of defense on national security and defense policy from 2009 to 2012.

One of the most interesting aspects of the possibility of Flournoy becoming the secretary of defense is that she’s likely to keep most of Trump’s policies in place. You have to wonder how Biden will feel about that if he gets the job and appoints her to that role.

O’Hanlon thinks that the DOD under Flournoy wouldn’t see much in the way of change concerning budget, force structure, modernization, and overall priorities.

Experts also think that the current approach to our nation’s adversaries will also remain the same as they are under President Trump.

This is definitely an interesting pick, if things swing toward Biden for the presidency and that whole matter is made official.

Will Biden really allow the country’s defense policy to continue as it is now? It seems like the left is so antagonistic about anything and everything the president has done, vowing to undo it all as soon Biden is in office.

Guess we’ll have to wait and see if the experts are right.

The Boston Marathon bomber will receive a stimulus check. And yes, it will be for the same amount that you will get. That’s not a joke. And he’s not the only criminal who will get it, either. Thanks for everything, Dems! Check this out, via The Daily Wire: Senate Democrats blocked an amendment by Republicans on Saturday that would have stopped taxpayer-funded stimulus checks from going to illegal aliens and incarcerated criminals. Republican Sens. Tom Cotton (AR), Ted Cruz (TX), and Bill Cassidy (LA) offered an amendment on the Senate floor to block prisoners from being able to receive stimulus checks, which was blocked in a 49-50 vote. LOOK: More from Fox News: The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office found this week that Biden’s coronavirus bill would add $1.862 trillion to the national deficit over 10 years, with the bulk of the new spending — $1.173 trillion — occurring in fiscal year 2021. Dems: never doing the right thing, each and every day!

Donald Trump Goes Scorched Earth on ‘Disloyal & Very Bad Senator’ Lisa Murkowski

Say goodbye, Lisa!!

John Salvatore



The GOP doesn’t need centrists in the upper and lower chambers. There are far too many liberals in Congress as it is. The left doesn’t need more votes. It’s time for RINO’s like Murkowski, Romney, Toomey, Cassidy, and Sasse to head on back over to the private sector. Donald Trump will do his best to soon make that a reality. From Washington Examiner: Former President Donald Trump will not be supporting Alaska GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s bid for a fourth term. The former president announced on Saturday that he’ll be traveling to the Last Frontier State to campaign against Murkowski ahead of her 2022 reelection bid, according to Politico. CONTINUED: “I will not be endorsing, under any circumstances, the failed candidate from the great State of Alaska, Lisa Murkowski. She represents her state badly and her country even worse,” he said. “I do not know where other people will be next year, but I know where I will be — in Alaska campaigning against a disloyal and very bad Senator.” Murkowski, a centrist, has long been willing to split from the former commander in chief, as evidenced by some of her recent votes in the Senate. The Alaskan voted for Trump’s conviction last month on the House’s impeachment article of inciting an insurrection. The former president was ultimately acquitted.
