Several of our Usual Suspects have sent in articles concerning Joe’s nominee for SecArmy. Christine Wormuth has never served a day in the military, but this is not a prerequisite for the job. According to US Code, “The Secretary shall, to the greatest extent practicable, be appointed from among persons most highly qualified for the position by reason of background and experience, including persons with appropriate management or leadership experience.”

Does she have the required qualifications and leadership experience? That’s for the Senate to determine during confirmation hearings.

Biden picks 1st woman to be Army secretary

If confirmed, Christine Wormuth would be the first woman to hold the job.

In a historic nomination, President Joe Biden has nominated Christine Wormuth to serve as the secretary of the Army.

If confirmed by the Senate, Wormuth — who once served as the Pentagon’s top policy official in the final years of the Obama administration — would be the first woman to serve in the position.


A veteran national security official with previous experience at the Pentagon, Wormuth also served at the director for defense policy at the National Security Council during the Obama administration.

Wormuth has most recently worked as the director of the International Security and Defense Policy Center at the Rand Corporation and was an influential player in the Biden transition team at the Pentagon where she headed the Biden-Harris Defense Agency Review Team.

“Christine is a true patriot with a dedicated career in service to America and our nation’s security,” Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said in a statement issued while he is traveling in Berlin.

Somehow SecDef Austin’s approval does little to inspire. Read the entire article here: ABC News
Thanks, Usual Suspects. You know who you are.

    And, of course and on cue, SECDEF weighed in with his fawning endorsement.

  2. Old tanker says:

    First. Her prior positions indicate she might just be qualified. Of course her positions in that administration also point to her politics as well.

    • Ret_25X says:

      her positions in the Obummer admin disqualify her completely.

      Any individual who was part of the criminal regime of Obama is absolutely unfit for public service in any form.

      Why do I say that?

      Fast and Furious
      Spying on political opponents
      jailing journalists
      drone strikes on wedding parties
      funding terrorists
      destruction of Libya and Syria
      creation of domestic terror orgs
      green steal deals

      One cannot have been an appointee in that administration without being part of one or more of those criminal conspiracies.

    What I want to know is if she passed the sniff test for this appointment by the Groper in Chief.

  4. Sapper3307 says:

    But can she bartend?

  5. Hiring by the Kremlin Supreme ruler are based on gender and race.

  6. Anonymous says:

    Not impressed or hopeful.

  7. MarineDad61 says:

    Bachelor’s degree in political science, check.
    Master’s in public policy, check.

    Battlefield commander? Nope.
    Pilot? Nope.
    Fleet chief? Nope.
    OCS? Nope.
    Military Basic Training? Nope.
    Political Party? Yes. Democrat.

    She’s a pure, unadulterated swamp critter…

    • rgr769 says:

      She will make sure the Army is totally woke to the point that its combat capabilities are totally broke.

      • AW1 Rod says:

        “Woke,” indeed. A mandatory annual LGBTQ Appreciation Day stand-down is just around the corner.

      • MI Ranger says:

        She will likely go ahead and save the Army some money by stopping the programs to update the battle rifle (“I’m sure the M4 is good enough…it worked in the last couple of wars…hmmh!”); the long range artillery program (“Isn’t your job to close with and destroy the enemy? Can’t really close with if you are 70 miles away now can we?!”); the TALOS program (aka Ironman Suit)…well maybe not since she’ll want everyone to be able to do all jobs, can’t have a little thing like human genetics stop that; new armored vehicles, except the remotely operated ones, powered by AI (“we don’t need trained killers…that’s bad!”); and of course anything that gets us back on par with Russia or China like Electronic Warfare, ISR, or Lasers…that should pay for that Green New Deal!

    A Cannibal and now a Cook and who will be the fire starter? Three is a magical number.

  10. Roh-Dog says:

    A leach at the “Security and Defense Policy Center at the Rand Corporation”, you say?
    Great! Hopefully once she’s done purging the DoD of all those mentally ill followers of the Constitution she can round up anyone who dares crave individual liberty and self-sufficiency.
    …its the only way to be sure.

  12. Jus Bill says:

    Every appointment Bidet makes is a calculated insult to America.

  13. KoB says:

    The plates are being set at the table in hell…and it is nearly breakfast time. As the obamamites continue their destruction of America.

  14. Stacy0311 says:


    She ain’t even down range hot.

    Palmala Handerson and her 5 sisters are a better option than that

  15. E4 Mafia 83-87 says:

    Who in this administration isn’t a diversity hire? The next Sec. Of (fill in the branch) will be gay, or trans, or muslim, or any combination if not all three. Still the most important trait is to be a staunch supporter of “The Swamp”.

  16. USMC Steve says:

    Two pretty much certain things come from this. One is that it is soooo trendy, hip and kewl. The other is that this twatwaffle will fuck it up from the get go and all the way to the end of her tenure.
