The Biden administration has released its 48-page National Security Strategy (NSS), and not surprisingly, it is filled with references to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) and, of course, climate change.
According to Breitbart, “DEI” is “a term encapsulating programs and trainings based on Critical Race Theory, which has its roots in Marxism.”
“The prominence of Critical Race Theory within the NSS was particularly unusual, since the strategy documents typically focus on national security challenges, but the Biden administration suggested that ‘strengthening our democracy’ was a national security imperative,” Breitbart reported.
“Our democracy is a work in progress—and by reckoning with and remedying our own shortcomings, we can inspire others around the world to do the same,” the NSS reads.
“As Americans, we must all agree that the people’s verdict, as expressed in elections, must be respected and protected. We also believe that critical reforms continue to be needed to strengthen our system of governance,” it continues. “This is why we have taken executive action and urged essential legislation to protect and promote voting rights and expand democratic participation, and why we are building on the work of generations of activists to advance equity and root out systemic disparities in our laws, policies, and institutions.”
“Indeed,” the NSS states, “pluralism, inclusion, and diversity are a source of national strength in a rapidly changing world.”
“Diversity and inclusion” also appears in the section dealing with “modernizing and strengthening” the United States military.
“We will strengthen the effectiveness of the force by promoting diversity and inclusion,” the NSS pledges.

As Breitbart noted, the woke vow is listed before the NSS addressed the more pressing military issues of suicide prevention and ending sexual assault and harassment.
When discussing the national security workforce and sharpening “our tools of statecraft,” the NSS states they are “Prioritizing diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility to ensure national security institutions reflect the American public they represent.”
In a tweeted reaction to the NSS, Rep. Mike Waltz (R-Fla.), who serves as the ranking member on the House Armed Services strategic forces and readiness subcommittee, accused the Biden administration of doubling down on “diversity and inclusion” in the NSS and prioritizing “rooting out extremism,” despite the Pentagon finding that extremism is “nearly non-existent.”
“Our military is losing credibility. Recruitment is dropping. We are kicking out capable soldiers due to the vaccine mandate,” he wrote. “How about we root out politics from our military and focus on training warfighters to defeat our enemies?”

In a statement to Breitbart News, Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.), on the House Armed Services subcommittee on Cyber, Innovative Technologies and Information Systems said, “At the same time the President is recklessly warning of nuclear war, Joe Biden’s National Security Strategy is focused on ‘promoting diversity and inclusion’ and claims ‘climate change is the greatest’ shared threat to the world.”
“Biden’s wokeness is America’s weakness,” Banks stated.
A search of the NSS for the word “climate” reveals it comes up 63 times in the document, more than even China, arguably the greatest threat to our national security.
“Nearly a full year late, the new Biden National Security Strategy professes to grapple with the threat posed by the Chinese Communist Party,” wrote Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-Wis.) in a statement posted to Twitter. “Yet it is not the CCP but climate change that the strategy explicitly prioritizes calling it ‘the existential challenge of our time.’”

In a statement published by Breitbart, Rep. Banks slammed the Biden administration, its policies, and the lack of leadership when America needs it most.
“After two years of weak foreign policy that has destabilized the Pacific and the Middle East and caused full-blown disasters in Ukraine and Afghanistan, the Biden administration finally released its National Security Strategy,” Banks wrote. “Even after multiple delays, the White House produced a mediocre document that consists of empty slogans doubling down on two years of failed policy and lacks any sort of comprehensive strategy.”
“The White House is refocusing national security resources on the left’s social justice and climate issues, instead of responding to the grave threats of China and Russia,” he continued. “It’s wasteful and negligent, continues to damage readiness and recruitment, and is contrary to servicemembers’ values and longstanding principles of American democracy.”
“The world desperately needs strong American leadership,” Banks concluded, “and Joe Biden is falling short.”
