I was sent an interesting article by my best friend yesterday which asked the question "Could One of Pres. Trump's Enduring Legacies Be Exposing a Decline in Civilian Control of the Military?" (click here to read the full article).

One of the key paragraphs in the article:

"And now the last three Defense Secretaries are all individuals who reached high military ranks before retiring - Mattis, Esper, and Lloyd Austin. Was their active duty service background the reason why Miller found that military policy is now so compartmentalized by the Joint Chiefs and combatant commanders that it's almost impossible for civilian leadership to obtain a complete picture of what was happening?"

On the face of things, this sounds like something Americans should be concerned with. Why is the US military becoming compartmentalized? What does that even mean?

Here's the definition of compartmentalization according to a military wiki:

"In matters concerning information security, whether public or private sector, compartmentalization is the limiting of access to information to persons or other entities who need to know it in order to perform certain tasks. The concept originated in the handling of classified information in military and intelligence applications.

"The basis for compartmentalization was the idea that, if fewer people know the details of a mission or task, the risk or likelihood that such information could be compromised or fall into the hands of the opposition is decreased. Hence, varying levels of clearance within organizations exist. Yet, even if someone has the highest clearance, certain 'compartmentalized" information, identified by codewords referring to particular types of secret information, may still be restricted to certain operators, even with a lower overall security clearance. Information marked this way is said to be codeword classified. One famous example of this was the Ultra secret, where documents were marked 'Top Secret Ultra': 'Top Secret' marked its security level, and the 'Ultra' keyword further restricted its readership to only those cleared to read 'Ultra' documents.[1]"

With this definition in mind, and looking at the events of the past four years, bearing in mind that the 2020 election appears to have been rife with fraud, that the fraud was perpetuated through Congress and the United States Supreme Court, it appears that the military, in an attempt to insulate itself from foreign interventions, began to compartmentalize to ensure that foreign operators would have a difficult time discerning who was involved in which operation, and therefore would be unable to counter such operations with any measure of effectiveness.

Another way to think about it is this.  Our mainstream media sources cannot stop gaslighting the American public with explosions of bullshit like this article trying to pretend that the 19 gun salute for funerals or foreign dignitaries performed by the military for Pretender Biden was actually a 21 gun salute (hint, it wasn't a 21 gun salute no matter how hard they try to pretend, and check out the comments of this video below from CBS News if you don't believe me).

If the media is controlled by foreign interests, and they won't stop pushing fake propaganda against the American public, then why should the military, charged with the defense of our citizens under a new administration installed by coup d'état, be anything except opaque? If our military is our last, best hope for surviving the attempts by foreign powers to dominate and ultimately destroy our republic, should they not take any and all steps necessary to ensure their success?

If anything, the American people should take heart, knowing that our military is working in our best interest. If that were not true, then why didn't Biden get a 21-gun salute? Why is the mainstream media pretending that he did?

These are interesting times. More will be revealed my friends.

The Battle of Guilford Court House was a battle fought on March 15, 1781, at a site which is now in Greensboro, the county seat of Guilford County, North Carolina, during the American Revolutionary War.
