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

Published

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.

“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.

Once again, “Project Veritas” continues to prove that it is one of the only reliable investigative arms in the media world. They expose the truth. Now that liberals have completely infiltrated Hollywood, big tech, the mainstream media and the education system, it is imperative that “Project Veritas” remains alive and well and free to operate. James O’Keefe’s outlet has, again, exposed CNN for the anti-Trump goons they really are.

Details: Minneapolis City Council Is Attempting to Defund the Police With $8 Million Cut

How ridiculous!

It takes a special kind of (insert own curse word here) to call for defunding police departments. You have to be incredibly politically challenged to think doing so is a good thing. We know, beyond any reasonable doubt, that less police presence equals higher crime rates. Fact. But that’s how the left likes to live: backward. From The Daily Wire: The Minneapolis City Council is trying again to defund the Minneapolis Police Department, after an initial effort to eliminate the city’s existing law enforcement apparatus and replace it with a “community-oriented” solution failed. Minneapolis’ CBS affiliate reports that three members of the Minneapolis City Council, all of whom supported a drastic plan to defund and disband the city’s police department following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody, are offering a “follow-up” solution that involves slashing the police budget and drastically cutting the number of MPD officers. CONTINUED: “Minneapolis City Council Member Phillipe Cunningham saw the mass protests following George Floyd’s death in late May as an imperative for something new,” the outlet reported Tuesday. “He and council colleagues Lisa Bender and Steve Fletcher have co-written a budget plan that proposes moving about $8 million out of the police department. For context, the current budget allocated nearly $200 million to MPD.” Bender is the force behind the City Council’s initial effort to defund and disband the police, and famously told interviewers, over the summer, that fears about a rising crime rate were evidence of “privilege.” Liberals need help. If they don’t get it, the entire nation will continue on a downward trajectory.
