Incumbent
Assumed office 
January 22, 2021

Political party Democrat
Salary $210,700+ retirement benefits from civil service and private sector activity
Net worth $10 million [1]

Lloyd James Austin III was appointed minister of defense in the Biden junta. He previously served as fall guy for the Obama administration's disastrous Syrian regime change policy.[2] Austin reported to Congress that after 6 months and spending $500 million, the supposed Free Syrian Army had recruited 5 guys.[3][4] The 5 guys in reality were 5 arms traffickers in Switzerland supplying weapons to the Islamic State.[5]

Austin is an active member of the military industrial complex and served on the Board of Raytheon, a defense contractor, prior to rejoining the civil service system.[6] Within 3 weeks of occupying the position of defense chief, Raytheon was awarded a $49 million contract by the Pentagon.[7] Austin walked away from Raytheon weeks earlier with a $1.7 million bonus and retirement package.[8]

Austin also served on the Board of Nucor, a supplier of steel to companies that benefit from US military spending, including Oshkosh Defense, which is producing 50,000 Humvee replacements, and shipbuilder Huntington Ingalls Industries, whose work includes submarines and aircraft carriers.[9] Austin earned $275,000 in total compensation from Nucor the previous year.[10]

Gen. Xu Qiliang, vice-chair of the Central Military Commission and a member of the Politburo Standing Committee who is the CCP’s most senior military officer, refused to meet with Austin, his counterpart and America's first African American defense minister.[11]

Politicization of the military

One of Austin's first actions was to order a 60 day nationwide stand down across all service branches to root out Trump voters, euphemistically referred to as "extremists". The junta attempted to identify military personnel who exercised their First Amendment right to peacefully assemble on January 6, 2020. In a Pentagon briefing with reporters, Ramón "CZ" Colón-López, the senior enlisted adviser to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that some troops have asked, when the January 6, 2021 riot is brought up, "How come you're not looking at the situation that was going on in Seattle prior to that?" "This is coming from every echelon that we're talking to," he added.[12]

Marxist indoctrination

On May 14, 2021, Lt Col. Matthew Lohmeier, a commander in the United States Space Force, was relieved of command for criticizing Marxist ideology.[13][14][15] Lohmeier said the Biden junta is teaching in the military that patriotism is evil.[16][17] In May 2021 over 200 retired generals and admirals issued a letter that stated that the United States is facing the “greatest danger to our constitutional Republic since 1776.”

The Committee to Support and Defend, led by LTC Allen West (ret.), issued a letter in June 2021 signed by over 1,000 military veterans that stated that as veterans, they are still morally and ethically bound to protect our Constitution and country. They wrote:

As such, we put our nation’s leadership on notice. We believe that the hard left turn toward Socialism and Marxism endangers our citizens and the future of this great nation…We are disgusted by the dismantling of the rule of law in our great country. We never thought we would see the return to Vietnam-style disdain for public service. Unfortunately, this disregard and disrespect is corrosive and will lead to dangerous situations for citizens and law enforcement.[18]

Witch hunt for Islamophobes

After the September 11, 2001 terror attacks, many young Patriots rushed to defend their country. The Marxist Biden junta began a witch hunt to root out alleged Islamophobes. The junta dismantled counterterrorism programs and replaced them with Countering Violent Extremism (CVE).

In Biden’s group of outside contractors, the Countering Extremism Working Group (CEWG), several appeared at events for CAIR, ICNA, and other terror-linked organizations. Some appeared at events featuring advocates for Islamic terrorism, sharia, and violence against non-Muslims. The list consists almost entirely of organizations and individuals who supported Biden's election coup. The group is tasked with dismantling CVE and siccing Islamist activists and their lawyers on the military to implement a ruthless purge of American soldiers.

Frontpagemag reported[19] that many personnel are from the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) including Heidi Beirich.

At the start of the Obama administration, Hina Shamsi was fighting on behalf of the Holy Land Foundation whose leaders had been convicted of providing material support to Hamas. As the head of the ACLU’s National Security Project, Shamsi, fought fiercely for the Islamic terrorists at Guantanamo Bay. In addition to Shamsi, there’s fellow Pakistani ACLU activist: Manar Waheed.

Faiza Patel co-wrote an article arguing against designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization (FTO). In another co-written article, Faiza Patel claimed that laws against Sharia were Islamophobic.

The list includes Wael Alzayat in his role as the CEO of Emgage. The national co-chair and founding member of the Islamic group is Khurrum Wahid who has been described as one of the country’s most prominent terror lawyers and whose clients include an Al Qaeda operative who plotted to kill President George W. Bush and Sami al-Arian who was linked to Islamic Jihad. Wahid had been placed on a terrorist watch list and Emgage, as counterterrorism researcher Joe Kaufman noted, "holds events at terror-linked mosques”: including one founded by al-Arian. Emgage's board includes Dhabah ‘Debbie’ Almontaser who was forced out of her old job over t-shirts reading “Intifada NYC”. Nada al Hanooti, Emgage's Executive Director for Michigan, is the daughter of Muthanna al Hanooti, a former CAIR leader who was accused of working for Saddam Hussein and Iraq's intelligence agency.

Also on the list of Biden's CEWG partners is Iman Boukadoum, the staff attorney for the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC). The ADC has a long history of defending and excusing Islamic terrorism. "I know many people in Hamas. They are very respectable," its former president Hamzi Moghrabi had said. Former ADC president Hussein Ibish called Hezbollah “a disciplined and responsible liberation force” whose members “conducted themselves in an exemplary manner.” Boukadoum was most recently hard at work fighting for Abdelhaleem Ashqar, who had been convicted of obstruction of justice in a case involving the flow of money to Hamas. Ashqar ran for president of the Palestinian Authority while awaiting trial in the United States. He had argued that the evidence against him had come from a time when “Hamas was not designated as a terrorist organisation” and boasted that, “they wanted me to testify against my people. I said I'd rather die than betray my commitment to freedom and justice for Palestine."

JEDI contract

Under Austin, the Pentagon canceled a $10-billion ‘JEDI’ cloud-computing contract with Microsoft in July 2021 and handed it back to tech giant Amazon, which had sued after President Trump took it away from Amazon in 2019.[20] Weeks earlier, Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband, who handles the families finances, bought $1 million in Amazon call options.[21]

Domestic political surveillance

In July 2021 The Washington Times reported,

"Austin recently approved the Capitol Police’s request for eight Persistent Surveillance Systems Ground – Medium (PSSG-M) units. The system provides high-definition surveillance video and is enabled with night vision. The system does not include facial recognition capabilities, according to the Pentagon.

“This technology will be integrated with existing USCP camera infrastructure, providing greater high definition surveillance capacity to meet steady-state mission requirements and help identify emerging threats,” the Pentagon said.

The technology, originally used by the U.S. troops during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, allows the user to monitor large areas 24/7 through extremely high-resolution cameras. [...]

In a wartime application, the persistent surveillance units were mounted on tethered blimps. The data could be stored, combined with sensor data from other platforms, and later referenced or rewound to track individuals or groups.

It could be used by the military to develop a “pattern of life” analysis on suspected enemy combatants or intelligence targets in war zones.[22]
