Joe Biden's administration has a special council to advise how to keep churches in America safe.

In fact, they've been under assault from the government, which during COVID ordered them to shut their doors and refuse to let people attend, by the leftist agenda in Washington that under Biden demands allegiance to the transgenderism and abortion ideologies, and radical and violent groups on the left who have been on a rampage ever since the faulty Roe abortion precedent was struck down by the Supreme Court.

But Biden's idea of protecting churches might surprise some.

It's because his council includes a Muslim who held a fundraiser for a cop-killer, a leader of the pro-LGBT ideology, another who insisted the idea of America as a "Christian" nation is "almost toxic," and another who said when Arab Muslims were targeting African Christians with "genocide" and thousands died, it actually was just because "things escalated."

It is the Washington Stand that has documented Biden's Faith-Based Security Advisory Council.

The issue rose in importance recently when the Department of Homeland Security warned that churches and "faith-based institutions" were facing the prospect of violent attacks in the coming months.

In fact, attacks against churches have tripled in just a few years, the report said.

The council purportedly is to help churches "prevent, protect against, respond to, and recover from acts of targeted violence or terrorism, major disasters, cyberattacks, or other threats or emergencies against places of worship, faith communities, and faith-based organizations."

The Stand explained the council includes:

Al Sharpton, who was accused of "vile rhetoric" that incited rioting just before rioters killed rabbinical student Yankel Rosenbaum. He also said, "If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house."

Also, Naomi Washington-Leapheart, who most recently was with the National LGBTQ Task Force and has insisted on changing the Bible to promote the organizations' preferred definitions of sexuality and gender. She has insisted on recruiting LGBTQ advocates inside churches and lashed out angrily when President Donald Trump "issued a 2019 conscience regulation protecting health care workers from being coerced into taking part in abortions, transgender surgeries, or assisted suicides," the report said.

Also, Leslie Copeland-Tune, of the National Council of Churches, who was the one who said "the belief that America is a Christian nation is 'almost toxic' and 'has really fed into the idea of white nationalism, of Christian nationalism,'" The report said. Copeland-Tune also has lobbied for "reparations" to blacks because of "equity."

Also, Mohamed Hagmagid Ali, AKA Imam Mohamed Magid, the chief of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society, who spoke at a fundraiser for convicted cop-killer H. Rap Brown, who now goes by the name "Jamil Al-Amin." Magid, on the topic of the Sudanese genocide in Durfar, claimed that "things escalated, and people called it genocide." The U.S. State Department actually said the slaughter of an estimated 200,000 people was, in fact, "genocide" targeting Christians.

Also, Salam al-Marayati, a founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council likened Islamic terrorists to "American freedom fighters hundreds of years ago." He said the 1983 bombing of a U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut, which killed 241 Americans, was a "military operation." The Washington Times has called MPAC "an anti-Semitic organization that has defended infamous terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah." He has tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, a fundamentalist group that has had al-Qaida founders Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri as members.

Pfizer, Moderna, and J&J were the main suppliers of those experimental COVID shots allowed by the Food and Drug Administration during the pandemic that apparently came out of a Chinese lab in Wuhan.

Since the number of deaths directly caused by the virus has dropped, there has been a long list of side effects and complications that have appeared, offering significant health threats to many.

But now an even worse problem has appeared, and the FDA has withdrawn permission for the J&J shots to be used.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, some 19 million Americans took that particular shot.

But one of the complications it apparently triggered was a condition involving blood clots.

The report said the cancellation of permission for the shots to be used was not a surprise, because the parent company, Jannsen, had asked for the move following revelations that the last run of doses, more than 12 million, expired.

Estimates are that some 231 million Americans were subjected, often on governmental or corporate mandates, to a shot from one of the three production companies.

The value of all of them also has been questioned, as one study revealed that the more shots and boosters patients took, the more likely they were to come down with COVID.

J&J's decision appears to indicate that it is stepping away from the COVID vaccination market entirely.

The report noted Peter Marks, of the FDA's Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, announced, "Because FDA understands that… Janssen Biotech, Inc. has requested that FDA withdraw the EUA for the Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine, FDA has determined that it is appropriate to protect the public health or safety to revoke this authorization."

Johnson & Johnson's product was dispatched for use on Americans in February 2021, well after mRNA shots by the other two companies had been available.

It then took only a month from the time the "emergency" authorization was granted that the shots were mired in the world of a surging number of severe blood clotting problems.

Doctors identified those as thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome.

That involves blood clots complicated by a severely low platelet count that prevents the body from stopping bleeding.

The FDA and Centers for Disease Control earlier mandated a "pause" on the use of the shots.

They later claimed it was "safe and effective."

Joe Biden and his leftist cohorts in power now have pushed Americans for years to be much more liberal, some would even say Marxist or communist, on a number of agenda points, from his ideologies of transgenderism to abortion to open borders.

Looks like he's failed.

As new polling from Gallup, in its latest Values and Beliefs Survey, reveals, shockingly, that Americans have turned back to conservatism with a vengeance on social policies and the economy.

"For most of the past eight years, Americans were about as likely to say they were liberal as conservative on social issues. This year, there is a more obvious conservative advantage," Gallup explained.

"The shift is mostly due to increasing social conservatism among Republicans, at a time when social issues such as transgender rights, abortion, and other hot-button concerns are prominent in the national public debate.

"When asked to describe their political views overall, without reference to social or economic issues, 40% say they have conservative views, 31% moderate and 26% liberal," said the pollster.

The polling said 38% of respondents are conservative on social issues, up from 33% last year, and 44% are economically conservative, both the highest numbers since back in 2012.

Those identifying as liberal plunged from 34% to 29% over the last year.

The pollster said, "The survey comes at a time when many states are considering policies regarding transgender matters, abortion, crime, drug use, and the teaching of gender and sexuality in schools."

The polling explained, "The increase in conservative identification on social issues over the past two years is seen among nearly all political and demographic subgroups. Republicans show one of the largest increases, from 60% in 2021 to 74% today. Independents show a modest uptick of five percentage points, from 24% to 29%, while there has been no change among Democrats (10% in both 2021 and 2023)."

Gallup said, "Since 2021, there have been double-digit increases in conservative social ideology among middle-aged adults -- those between the ages of 30 and 64. At the same time, older Americans’ ideology on social issues has been stable, while there has been a modest increase in conservative social ideology among young adults.

"When Americans are asked to describe their views on economic issues, 44% identify as very conservative or conservative, 33% as moderate, and 21% as very liberal or liberal. The percentage saying they are conservative averaged 40% between 2020 and 2022. The current figure is the highest since 46% in 2012."

The report added, "Americans have been more likely to identify as economically conservative rather than liberal because Republicans overwhelmingly say they are conservative, but Democrats are not overwhelmingly liberal. In 2023, 79% of Republicans identify as conservative on economic issues, while 48% of Democrats say they are liberal. Additionally, more independents identify as economic conservatives (36%) than liberals (16%). About half of independents say they are moderate on economic matters."

And on social issues, "This year, there is a more obvious conservative advantage. The shift is mostly due to increasing social conservatism among Republicans, at a time when social issues such as transgender rights, abortion, and other hot-button concerns are prominent in the national public debate.

"Greater social conservatism may be fostering an environment more favorable to passing conservative-leaning social legislation, especially in Republican-dominated states. Indeed, in the past year, many Republican states have passed stricter constraints on abortions, limited choices for transgender youth in sports participation and healthcare, and placed prohibitions on what topics can be discussed in classroom settings."

The United States Air Force is celebrating LGBT "pride month" with a serviceman 'saluting' the activist homosexual-bisexual-transgender-"queer" "rainbow" flag.

The Air Force published a tweet Wednesday reading: "June is #PrideMonth! The Department of the Air Force proudly recognizes and celebrates generations of LGBTQI+ service members and their contributions to our #AirForce & #SpaceForce."

Tweeted Mike Garcia: "As an AF veteran, this is pathetic & embarrassing. You should focus on winning wars & not social or political issues. Disgusting."

The tweet is part of an unprecedented official U.S. military campaign to celebrate LGBT pride as part of Commander-in-Chief Joe Biden's overall leftist "diversity" formula.

As WND reported Tuesday, the Pentagon has chosen to honor a radical homosexual activist, Harvey Milk, as the symbol of this year's "pride" activities. Milk, who was molested by homosexual predators when he was a young teenage boy, went on to enter into a live-in sexual relationship with a 16- or 17-year-old boy when he was in his thirties.

Conservatives immediately reacted with disdain at the meme, in which the shadowed figure is saluting a flag that appears to be a combination of the original "gay" and "transgender" pride flags.

Several people tweeted in response to the message that they will discourage their children from signing up to serve in this military, seemingly confirming widespread criticism that Biden's "woke" Pentagon policies are tied to sagging recruitment efforts.

"I'm so old, I remember when our military only saluted the American Flag ... not a flag celebrating all the things people have sex with," tweeted talk show host Tim Young, who often subs for some of the top conservative talkers.

John Burk tweeted in response: "More proof that the military has put their main focus on corporate agendas to appease the progressive crowd. Their recruitment numbers are plummeting and this is the main reason. So rather than simply focus on warfighting and the like, they continue down this path that is destroying them. Sad state of affairs for the military."

In 2021, President Biden overturned a Trump policy and gave blanket approval for U.S. Embassies abroad to fly the "rainbow flag" to celebrate LGBT "pride."

One of two big agenda items that Joe Biden is insisting the United States fully adopt during his presidency is the ideology of transgenderism.

The other is abortion.

But now Biden's LGBT campaign might have hit a road bump.

Since his education secretary admitted that those policies – to allow the definition of women to be expanded to include men – cause sexual harassment.

The details are outlined in a commentary published on Fox News.

That documents a recent congressional hearing in which U.S. Rep. Erin Houchin, R-Ind., was asking Education Secretary Miguel Cardona about Biden's plans for Title IX. Those changes would require schools to allow males who say they are female to participate in any female athletic endeavor.

Houchin asked, "Do you believe that requiring those women to undress in front of Lia Thomas and allowing Lia Thomas to undress in front of female athletes constitutes sexual harassment, yes or no?"

Cardona tried to avoid answering, with, "I don't believe students should, be, feel unsafe in any locker room."

Houchin pressed, "Do you believe that it constitutes sexual harassment to force women to undress in front of biological males?"

He admitted, "I do believe forcing, uh, forcing women to undress in front of biological males is a concern and sexual … yes."

The member of Congress continued, "So if Lia Thomas identifies as male, would requiring female swimmers to dress with him have constituted sexual harassment?"

Cardona: "I think I know the line of questioning, and I'd be happy to… it's not a yes or no question for me."

The commentary, by Doreen Denny, senior director of government relations for Concerned Women for America, explained, "Cardona is forced to admit the obvious. It's the only common-sense position: Yes, forcing women to share a locker room with a nude male against their will constitutes sexual harassment.

"But Cardona finds himself trapped in defending that position. The tentacles of trans activism ruling the Biden administration have tightened their grip to the point of suffocating common sense and common decency. All female athletes are held hostage to the ideological activism on display in Cardona's appearance before Congress and on the pages of federal rulemaking."

Cardona was appearing before the House Education and Workforce Committee, on the issue of Title IX, "which requires schools to let males self-identifying as women participate on female sports teams."

"Under your department's regime, self-identification is deemed sufficient for a man to be a legal ‘woman' and therefore compete in women's sports. And one could self-identify as a man on one day and a woman the very next day," charged Chairwoman Virginia Foxx, R-N.C.

Biden is threatening to withhold federal funding from any school that won't allow males to identify as women on female athletic teams.

Denny explained, "The NCAA has a history of throwing women under the bus, but throwing a naked male in their locker room against their consent is sexual harassment violating their rights under Title IX."

One of the bigger fights going on in Washington right now is the refusal by the FBI to turn over a document subpoenaed by members of Congress.

The routine form contains information about a $5 million bribe to Joe Biden in return for policy decisions that would favor the foreign interest making the payment, and possibly other Biden family corruption.

Its existence was revealed by a whistleblower, to Congress, where members are demanding the FBI hand it over. The bureau has refused, only allowing a few members to "see" the document in a secure setting.

One of those members, far-left U.S. Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., was among those viewing the allegations and explained it all away easily.

He said, after the viewing, "What I learned was that Attorney General Barr named Scott Brady, who was the U.S. attorney for Western Pennsylvania, to head up a group of prosecutors who would look into all the allegations related to Ukraine."

He continued, "After Rudy Giuliani surfaced these allegations," the team investigated the FBI's FD-1023 document and "determined that there were no grounds to escalate from an initial assessment to a preliminary investigation," and so "they called an end to the investigation."

A new report in The Federalist confirms Raskin then repeated his claims.

He said it was Attorney General Bill Barr and Brady, a Trump appointee, "were the ones who decided" the halt the investigation.

"If there is a complaint, it is with Attorney General William Barr, the Trump Justice Department, and the team that the Trump administration appointed to look into it," he reiterated.

Only, The Federalist Report revealed, it was a lie.

In an interview with the publication, Barr said, "It’s not true. It wasn’t closed down."

Barr explained, "On the contrary, it was sent to Delaware for further investigation."

The report explained Barr went on the record after Raskin made his claims about the closed-door meeting with House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer and the FBI. It was there that the FBI form was viewed that documented a report from a trusted "confidential human source" "that then-Vice President Joe Biden agreed to accept money from a foreign national to affect policy decisions," the report said.

The report noted that was "just one of Raskin's deceptions."

It explained, "The ranking member of the House Oversight Committee also falsely suggested the CHS’s allegations were related to the investigation of information Rudy Giuliani had unearthed of the Biden family corruption in Ukraine."

Another individual familiar with the investigation told The Federalist the CHS and the resulting FD-1023 document were "unrelated to Rudy Giuliani" and not related to any information Giuliani provided.

The Federalist explained, "These new revelations prove significant for two reasons. First, there’s the underlying scandal of the FBI’s alleged failure to investigate the FD-1023 and FBI Supervisory Intelligence Analyst Brian Auten’s opening of an assessment in August 2020 to discredit that information, which 'caused investigative activity to cease.'"

Further, how could agents further investigate, as the whistleblower said the details were placed in a restricted-access file?

Comer, R-Ky., who also viewed the FBI document, said the problem was even worse than thought.

"A trusted confidential human source obtained information from a foreign national who claimed to have bribed then-Vice President Biden," he said.

The Federalist said, "So the CHS didn’t just pass on information from some random third party: He spoke directly with the individual who claimed to have bribed Biden."

"The more the FBI leak and coverup machine spins for President Biden, the worse the bureau looks," Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said in an interview with The Federalist. "Enough is enough. It’s past time for the FBI to come clean and show their work if they have any hope of salvaging their own credibility."

Demetre Daskalakis is one of the LGBT radicals given power by Joe Biden, being named deputy coordinator for national monkeypox response.

His reputation as an LGBT promoter and his affinity for Satanist emblems already were well-established before being given the federal assignment. He'd been on the cutting edge, appearing at times in leather belts for a Pride parade and sporting a pentagram.

Now he's been partnering with FBI chief Christopher Wray to teach employees about the bureau's Pride Month in an event that offered credit toward mandatory training.

Just the News reported bureau workers were offered training credit for listening to the activist "known for his pentagram tattoo and pentagram-shaped leather harness."

The report explained FBI whistleblower Steve Friend, who left the bureau during an unpaid leave he described as retaliatory, posted an image of an FBI email from just days ago inviting employees to the stunt.

It was billed as a product of the FBI's Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the event was promoted as being led by Director Chris Wray.

Daskalakis was scheduled to speak on "the importance of LGBT+ [sic] visibility in the government and health care industry."

The report noted Daskalakis often appears online without a shirt, sometimes without pants, and frequently displays a chest tattoo in the pentagram shape.

"He told Politico he's not a Satanist and that his voluminous 'thirst trap' photos are just to show off the work he put into his tattoos and exercise. Daskalakis also has a Jesus tattoo on his stomach," the report said.

A friend reported he'd been told Wray gave Daskalakis a "certificate" expressing appreciation this week.

Wray honoring Daskalakis "makes it obvious why they're trying to shut down traditional Catholics having Latin Mass and treating disgruntled parents at school board meetings like domestic terrorists," Trump administration Assistant Attorney General Jeff Clark explained on social media.

The report noted a previous FBI diversity training scheme was pushed in 2021, but was killed almost immediately.

Part of that was the "incredibly significant" number of negative responses it got, the report said.

The training for agents suggests sex is subjective and creates new ideologies with its contention that women who are attracted to men but identify as men are gay.

Agents also were taught not to say "transgender," or ask questions about surgeries and treatments.

Or even a person's "real" name."

Many Americans by now have perceived that the Russian war on Ukraine is far more complicated than "goodies vs. baddies," as one commentary explained.

One side has the extremist Vladimir Putin, who has talked even of nuclear weapons. But on the other, there's long been evidence of corruption in Ukraine, and one of the more disturbing factors has been evidence that some of its troops are wearing Nazi emblems on their uniforms.

Now a report at Zerohedge explains that even the so-called "paper of record," the New York Times, has conceded that's an issue.

That publication recently admitted, "In November, during a meeting with Times reporters near the front line, a Ukrainian press officer wore a Totenkopf variation made by a company called R3ICH (pronounced 'Reich'). He said he did not believe the patch was affiliated with the Nazis. A second press officer present said other journalists had asked soldiers to remove the patch before taking photographs."

The Times' own headline this week explained, "Nazi Symbols on Ukraine's Front Lines Highlight Thorny Issue of History."

Of course, it is the Ukrainian military to whom Joe Biden has sent military equipment, as well as hundreds of millions of American taxpayer dollars.

The Zerohedge report explained, "This acknowledgment comes after literally years of primarily indy journalists and geopolitical commentators pointing out that yes indeed … Ukraine's military and paramilitary groups, especially those operating in the each since at least 2014, have a serious Nazi ideology problem."

The report continued:

The authors of the NYT report begin by expressing frustration over the optics of Nazi symbols being displayed so proudly on many Ukrainian soldiers' uniforms. Suggesting that many journalistic photographs which have in some cases been featured in newspapers and media outlets worldwide (typically coupled with generally positive articles on Ukraine's military) are merely 'unfortunate' or misleading, the NYT report says, "In each photograph, Ukrainians in uniform wore patches featuring symbols that were made notorious by Nazi Germany and have since become part of the iconography of far-right hate groups."

The report confirms some in newsrooms actually have been deleting images because they contain Nazi imagery.

In one case, even NATO deleted an image of a Nazi-linked patch.

Others had documented the existence of those images earlier, Zerohedge reported.

According to NBC in a previous report, "Germans were confronted with images of their country’s dark past on Monday night when German public broadcaster ZDF showed the video of Ukrainian soldiers with Nazi symbols on their helmets in its evening newscast."

The Times' report continued, "But some members of these groups have been fighting Russia since the Kremlin illegally annexed part of the Crimea region of Ukraine in 2014 and are now part of the broader military structure. Some are regarded as national heroes, even as the far-right remains marginalized politically. The iconography of these groups, including a skull-and-crossbones patch worn by concentration camp guards and a symbol known as the Black Sun, now appears with some regularity on the uniforms of soldiers fighting on the front line, including soldiers who say the imagery symbolizes Ukrainian sovereignty and pride, not Nazism."

Several large American corporations have plunged neck-deep into the promotion of the LGBT ideology in recent months, most notably Anheuser-Busch and Target.

The beer maker promoted its partnership with a male social media influencer who is living as a woman and honored him with a beer can with his picture.

The corporation lost somewhere in the range of $27 billion in value within days and analysts say it could be permanent.

Likewise, Target promoted a line of clothing intended for individuals who adopt transgenderism, including women's swimsuits designed for males, and such. It also partnered with a Satanist to develop various projects.

The public reaction was such that it lost some $13 billion in value.

Now those political agendas are creating their own costs.

It is the National Center for Public Policy Research that confirmed its Free Enterprise Project is demanding Target's "corporate books and records related to its reckless promotion of LGBT products."

As shareholders in the corporation, the NCPPR and FEP served the retailer with demands for transparency into Target's "radical LGBT political agenda."

The organization is represented by the law firms of Boyden Gray & Associates an America First Legal.

Its letter charges that while Target’s Annual Report conceded the company's customer base is America's "families,” it is evident that "Target’s board of directors and management team have bowed to woke leftists by recklessly embracing the radical agenda of the LGBT movement."

However, that appears to ignore the fiduciary responsibility directors and managers have to their shareholders "by entering the realm of political activism."

FEP chief Scott Sherpard explained, "Target’s executives and directors must maximize the value of the company, not the visibility of their pet political positions.

"When a profoundly partisan, wholly unnecessary move results in billions in value being sheared from a company, the CEO’s response better not be cannot be 'it’s the right thing for society, and it’s the great thing for our brand.' When that happens, as it did here, Target’s CEO Brian Cornell has admitted he’s running the company into the ground on purpose for personal reasons. Shareholders must step in to stop him."

Stephen Miller, head of America First Legal, noted, "Target has formally acknowledged to its shareholders the significant financial risks that would come from eroding positive public perceptions of its brand. Yet Target went ahead and embraced the most radical and offensive excesses of anti-family, anti-child gender extremism: promoting products like ‘tuck-friendly’ bathing suits and Satanist-inspired clothing.

"The transgender agenda, as is well known and not disputed, holds that innocent children are trapped in the wrong body of the opposite sex – a purported malady for which the only ‘treatment’ is to chemically castrate, sterilize and surgical mutilate the child. This includes double mastectomies on healthy girls and puberty blockers and testosterone for healthy boys that will leave them sterile and sexually undeveloped for life."

Miller said, "For Target to voluntarily and aggressively associate itself with this movement is an act of sabotage against Target shareholders and a destroyer of value – especially for countless Americans for whom shares of Target are part of the pension funds, mutual funds, and retirement accounts on which they depend."

At virtually the same time the letter was being sent to Target, Elon Musk was warning that Target should expect lawsuits from shareholders because of its political agenda.

Those lost billions of dollars?

"Target should expect lawsuits from shareholders over its Pride range 'for the destruction of shareholder value,'" Elon Musk said, according to Business Insider.

JPMorgan now has downgraded Target's stock.

"Won't be long before there are class-action lawsuits by shareholders against the company and board of directors for the destruction of shareholder value," Musk said on social media.

First in a series.

The U.S. Air Force has sent a "Pride Month" celebration memo to its entire workforce that uncritically regurgitates biased "gay" history, including a tribute to anti-Christian gay activist Harvey Milk that whitewashes Milk's predatory "marriage" to a teenage boy when he was in his thirties.

WND acquired the memo from a concerned individual who received it as a USAF employee. It was sent out "for widest dissemination" at an Air Force base in the U.S. on June 1, the first day of "Pride Month." That is what LGBT advocates and their allies call the entire month of June as they dedicate it to celebrating homosexuality, bisexuality, transgenderism, and other aberrant sexual and gender lifestyles -- behaviors that millions of Americans, religious and secular, consider wrong or immoral.

WND is withholding the name of the source, who could face severe retribution if it were revealed.

The Air Force-circulated memo declares, "Pride Month is a time to celebrate the contributions and rights of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ+) community, spanning over the entire month of June each year."

"President Bill Clinton officially declared June as Gay and Lesbian Pride Month on 2 June 2000. President Barack Obama expanded the observance to National Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month on 1 June 2009," the memo states.

"Pride celebrations are held in cities throughout the country celebrating the LGBTQ+ community. Celebrations range from picnics, festivals, parades, parties, workshops, and concerts."

The memo comes with the full authorization of the Department of the Air Force at a time when growing numbers of Americans are expressing outrage at the promotion of LGBT "pride" in once-trusted institutions, especially as it affects children bombarded with pro-homosexual and, now pro-transsexual, messages. Conservative boycotts against Bud Light and Target for promoting transsexuality and, in Target's case, LGBT "pride" clothing for little kids, have reached levels of success not seen in decades.

Meanwhile, American military recruitment has lagged in recent years due in large part, critics say, to military's "woke" policies, which turn off patriotic conservatives and which inevitably are most radical under Democrat administrations like Joe Biden's.

But as conservatives and everyday Americans bemoan Biden's "woke military" for devastating recruitment and making the United States a laughingstock in the eyes of aggressive foreign enemies, the Air Force memo says its version of "diversity" is just what the military needs to expand its ranks:

“Members of the LGBTQI+ community serve their country, fully contribute to the DoD mission, and deserve a welcoming environment which enables them to reach their full potential. As the largest employer in the world, DoD's reputation as a diverse and inclusive organization is essential to attracting and retaining the highly qualified talent necessary to execute our national security mission. To remain the world's preeminent military force, we need to ensure DoD provides a professional, innovative, and globally competitive work environment where all qualified Americans can serve their country."

Little-known agency now pushes LGBT propaganda

Buttressing the memo is advocacy material produced by a little-known DoD-affiliated research and press agency called the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute, or DEOMI. In a classic example of bureaucratic mission creep, this organization, which was formed to help build race relations in the military, is now engaged in full-fledged LGBT advocacy, effectively serving as the press center for the military's "woke" DEI initiatives. Readers can view DEOMI's "pride" campaign information here.

Ironically, the same DEOMI that is lionizing "gay" icons like Milk without mentioning relevant facts such as his live-in, sexual "relationship" with an underage runaway boy (as documented by a sympathetic homosexual journalist, Randy Shilts) is also tasked with assisting the Pentagon in "extremism prevention" education within the Armed Forces.

Conservatives have assailed the Biden administration for promoting "progressive" narratives that paint the "extremist" label on patriotic Americans defending the Constitution.

This exclusive WND series will examine the tendentious LGBT "history" claims found in the DEOMI "Pride Month" materials, as well as other examples of its one-sided approach toward this cultural issue, for example:
