Before college simply turned into an exercise in victimization and professional rent seeking, people would study subjects like history instead of learning how to be offended by a men's restroom. One of the most common lessons students pored over was the fall of the Roman Empire, and how it was enabled when the Romans no longer took responsibility for their own defense. Instead, they turned it over to foreign barbarians who eventually conquered the Eternal City itself.
In our enlightened Republic, we have something worse. Our Congress (under Republican control, remember) is making sure combat veterans and experienced soldiers, sailors, Marines, and airmen are driven out of the military. Americans want to serve. They just aren't wanted anymore. Instead, the empty slots will be filled with illegals who will be given amnesty.
If the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016 is approved, it would shrink the United States military under the pretense of frugality, namely by “pink slipping” career service members who’ve endured combat. Meanwhile, it could possibly use the military to grant amnesty to illegals.
According to a summary of the NDAA, the House Armed Services Committee supports a 20 percent cut in personnel by the Department of Defense to reduce headquarters’ budgets and workforce.
Breitbart News previously reported the proposal contains language that would use the military to grant amnesty to thousands of illegal aliens if they enlist in the military—essentially meaning that in addition to the cuts of Americans from service, Congress and the administration would be allowing illegal aliens to take scarce service jobs from Americans.
Breitbart reported, “The House Armed Services Committee has already passed the NDAA which contained the secretive amnesty for illegal aliens. The nature of the amnesty is that those so-called ‘DREAMer’ illegal aliens who have received President Barack Obama’s first executive amnesty—the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which currently just shy of a million illegal aliens have received—would now be able to get legislative and permanent amnesty if they enlisted in the United States Armed Forces.

Who are the service members who will be cut? Ah, that's the best part.
Career service members who endured combat are reportedly the ones who are getting pink slips in the name of budgetary cuts.
The Main Stream Media is currently occupying itself by snarking about Americans' fears over "Operation Jade Helm," military drills supposedly aimed at practicing subduing American populations. But the deeper issue reflected in this bill is the deliberately severed connection between the historic American nation and the American military.
Leading politicians like Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush have long since become "post-American" in the sense that they share no loyalty, attachment, or even any real concern for the American nation-state. However, the military is still seen as a traditional institution, widely respected and served by the historic American nation.
Now, it appears the plan is to drive actual Americans out of the armed services and use the military simply as a glorified bureaucracy for importing more illegals. Conservative Christians are already leaving the service in droves because of discrimination and perceived hostility from the chain of command [U.S. military 'hostile' to Christians under Obama; morale, retention devastated, by Jacqueline Klimas, Washington Times, April 15, 2015].
As "white privilege" classes are now part of military training as well, this could be a precursor to a larger exodus of European-Americans from the military [Army Soldiers Lectured on 'White Privilege' At Equal Opportunity Briefing, by Ashley Rae Goldenberg, FoxNation, April 5, 2015].
But why not? After all, to live up to the name, a Minority Occupation Government needs an army of occupation.
