Yannow, there's just too much blog-fodder out there these days.
Couple of t'ings 'ere Mon...
First: We'll cover the promotion thing.
Seems according to Stars and Stripes, the DotMilNav is going to start re-including promotion pictures in it's promotion packets. Now, to those of you non-DotMil Civvies, that's interesting to say the least. See.. the DotMilNav stopped using pictures in Promotion Packets a few back... theory being that it was rayyyyycist and sheeee-it that someone would see a black/Hispanic/oriental and use their Whypeepo Superpreemiecyst Powers to not get said up-for-promotion peepul promoted. Now in the DotMilArm, it's called your "DA Photo"... Department of the Army Photo...
(And BTW: Interesting, his uniform, his regimental crests are my old unit 1-4 Infantry in Hohenfels Germany... they're also metal, which means he's in Bravo Company... 1-4 lost it's right (except Bravo) to wear the metal regimental crests when they ran from the field of battle and lost the guidon to the brits during the War of 1812 when they burned DC... 1-4 was the city's defense and broke and ran, so the -normal crests are fabric with the red-green-red on a fabric... Bravo Company died-in-place, so they're the ONLY part of 1-4 to get to wear the metal crests...VERY illuminating...)
So, to continue.
From experience, you get a DA Pic ready when you start 'moving on up' in ranks, and it's supposed to be sort of a 'cover sheet' of you in uniform. ALL The branches USED to do it, and apparently, because RAAAAYYYYYCISTS the DotMilNav quit doing it.
Now? According to the article, "The Navy could include service photos in promotion packages again after data suggested minorities are less likely to be selected blindly in some situations by promotion review boards, the service’s chief of personnel said Tuesday." https://www.stripes.com/branches/navy/2021-08-03/promotions-photos-navy-marine-corps-diversity-2432841.html
Huh... how about that?
I can tell you the reality of it.
You average racial minority... well.. to be completely honest with you, they tend to be somewhat worthless for the most part in the DotMil combat wise... Case in point, in the Infantry, no shit, back during the pre-war Army of 1990 to 1999 when I was in, I could count on one fucking hand how many Black Infantrymen I knew... like that fucking few. The blacks for the most part tended to go into non combat support roles which are, far and between are far less dangerous or demanding. The black guys I did know? Fucking gold man. Guys I'd still take a a round for... all the rest?
Meaning that the logistics branches, Supply and whatnot? Positively flooded.
Hell, I've talked about it here... the contracts I was on as a Whypeepo in logistics? Overwhelmingly black run... "Being Down With the Brown" as we called it, what few whypeepo that were allowed to play.
And the Navy? Well, lets just say that what I heard from this story is that when a black goes up for promotion, well, their records just couldn't or wouldn't stand up and above. Meaning broken farm equipment tends to stay broken. Soooooo re-add the pic, and now? You'd better have a damned good reason to deny Chief KuntaKinte for his promotion to Master Chief, despite the fact that he missed every. single. combat. deployment in the past 15 years, and he suffers from chronic bedwetting, and that he's been accused of 4 counts of inappropriate sexual behavior with subordinates... You better promote his nigger ass or YOUR career is over.
By the way...
No joke... the above 'indiscretions'? I mentioned?
ALL of them applied to my immediate NCO, (E-6) a fucking whypeepo hating whygurl rapist black man who tried to accuse me of racism for pointing out his ass was worthless, except as a bayonnette dummy.
And they actually investigated me, until I provided ALL the evidence and witnesses.
No worries though... he positively loved his sugar in his coffee... I just made sure that the 'additive' was out of an 8-Ball, and then the remaining part of the eight ball was planted properly in his car... then the call to CID took care of the rest. He suicided shortly after being drummed out of the service for drug dealing/abuse of cocaine.
No regerts ever.
Fuck that guy.
Yeah, gotta give the Nogs their 'edge' to get promoted,
As sure as fuck they can't stand on their abilities.
Then, Next Story: The Marine Corps.
Much fun been made here, as hell, easy targets and a target rich environment. However, in reality? The Jarheads are some bad ass motherfuckers. Crayon eaters for sure, but still, gotta love 'em. They are OUR Marines after all. That and the word slipping out that the current Commandant Marine Corps General David H. Berger, well, lets just say it appears that the Ghost of Chesty Puller, Lou Diamond, maybe even Gunnery Sgt. John Basilone possibly (if the reports are true) inhabited his ass to eat a new asshole out of an asshole name of Lloyd Austin, current broken farm equipment and Secretary of Defense... Now Lloyd (man thats a faggy name ain't it?) he and the Commandant went round and round aboot the NotVax, with the Commandant essentially calling the SecDef a Traitor and a Fucking Worthless (no shit) Politico. "Get Fucked, Die in a Fire, Thatisall"

Now, as to legit? Ooh... tough call. All of the Magic 8 Balls I've consulted have said "Probably Happened." Berger is a Marine's Marine. Dude makes Mattis look like a fag. This dude? he's the real fucking deal.
That's how his ribbons work out...
Lots of "I was there when boolits were flying" ribbons
TBH, I think I met this guy as a contractor in Iraq. He was the Regimental Combat Team Colonel in charge of "Fallujah 2: Hajji Boogaloo." He kicked a lot of ass and stacked a shit-ton of haj carcii.
Tough call... back during those days I briefed and assisted a ton of senior folks... he was prolly one-of-many that I met...either way. Cool as fuck.
So, IF and that's a IF that's a big 'un, then this's UUUGE. Means that the DotMil is not necessarily 'all in' on the Biden Cabal. Makes for interesting times Aye?
So, You read, you decide
Me? Been a full day. Two interviews with more to come.
