Top military leaders and Pentagon officials undermine the U.S. military by forcing critical race theory on America's men and women in uniform, said former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich.

Service members shouldn't be concerned about the race of the person next to them, Gingrich said. Instead, it is imperative to recognize they are on a mission to defend their country.

"It's been said that soldiers don't fight for some general theory; they fight for the person next to them," he said. "CRT, which causes us to see each other through the lens of race and the oppressor versus the oppressed, is the antithesis of this cohesion."

NASA should beware of Critical Race Theory

  NASA should beware of Critical Race Theory Some fear that identity politics might threaten NASA's primary mission to uncover scientific secrets, return Americans to the moon and eventually get them to Mars. Yes, the next moonwalkers will be a woman and a person of color. But plenty of spots will remain for people of all races and genders.The worst thing that NASA could do is to go off mission and cause needless conflict by upending Martin Luther King's plea to judge people not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.


Critical race theory and other closely related ideologies hold that the United States is inherently racist and that skin color is used to create and maintain social, economic, and political inequalities between white and nonwhite people. Critics claim it relegates all white people to the role of oppressors and all people of color to that of victims.

No other military is putting its soldiers through the teachings seen in the U.S. armed forces — instead, those militaries are focused on fighting wars, he said.

With "China threatening American supremacy, our military should be locked in, not studying a theory that demonizes America," Gingrich wrote in a Fox News opinion article. "What kind of message does this send to Beijing — or Moscow, Tehran or Pyongyang?"

Pence v. Biden on China: Competing but consistent visions

  Pence v. Biden on China: Competing but consistent visions Chinese leader Xi Jinping and his minions recognize the Trump-to-Biden policy continuity — and they don’t like it.In surprising ways, most of the Biden national security team is following the basic thrust of Trump administration China policies. Though the Biden roster includes personnel who served during the 16 Bill Clinton and Barack Obama years, the policies Beijing complains about were put in place during the single Donald Trump term.

"Unfortunately, it’s not just the Air Force Academy. West Point offers a seminar class on 'White rage.' The chief of Naval Operations recommends 'How to Be an Antiracist' as a 'foundational' text for sailors," he said. "The Navy’s reading list for sailors also includes 'The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness' and 'Sexual Minorities and Politics.' In short, the military has gone woke."


“Simply put, critical race theory undermines our military’s effectiveness, destroying trust and taking focus away from the mission,” he wrote.

China appears to be expanding its nuclear capabilities, US researchers say in new report .
China is building a second field of missile silos in its western deserts, according to a new study, which researchers say signals a potential expansion of its nuclear arsenal and calls into question Beijing's commitment to its "minimum deterrence" strategy.Identified via satellite imagery, the new missile base in China's Xinjiang region may eventually include 110 silos, said the report released Monday by the Federation of American Scientists (FAS).
