President Joe Biden and his administration are continuing to purge and politicize the American military. Consistent with the totalitarian left’s effort to control curricula down to the grade-school level, their latest effort targets the education of America’s future military leaders at the service academies: The U.

Austin ordered that the review of service academies’ boards was to be completed by April 30. This has yet to occur. However, on Aug. 27, Susan
