Another Obama Gender-Agenda Fail

Obama's Air Force Academy Commandant of Cadets was removed for "climate and leadership issues."

Mark Alexander · May 9, 2019

At the end of April, the U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA), without explanation, removed its Commandant of Cadets, Brig. Gen. Kristin “Duchess” Goodwin. According to the USAFA PIO spokesperson, Lt. Col. Tracy Bunko, “Effective immediately, Brig. Gen. Kristin Goodwin is no longer performing her duties as the commandant of cadets pending the results of an ongoing investigation.”

Goodwin is a ‘93 USAFA graduate, and spent most of her years amassing an admirable record in bomber pilot commands. She came to the Academy from her staff job as a military assistant to Barack Obama’s inept and unqualified Air Force Secretary, Deborah Lee James. She was on a short list for the USAFA Commandant post with other qualified candidates, but she had one additional qualification important to the Obama administration — gender attraction dysphoria, meaning viewed by the administration as an ideal culture influencer for the next generation of Air Force officers.

Obama loathed our military, and disgracefully used its service branches and their respective academies to implement and enforce his cultural agenda. The Air Force Academy was his favorite target, having the most conservative culture of the service academies.

In 2013, we exposed the Obama administration’s agenda to rid military oaths of the words, “So Help Me God,” starting with the quiet omission of those words in the USAFA officer and enlisted oaths. After our investigation of this subversive maneuver, veterans serving in Congress sent an official letter of inquiry to the Superintendent of the Air Force Academy asking for “a detailed explanation as to why the [AFA handbook] omits 'So Help me God.’” That put and end to the administration’s effort to alter military oaths, though we can tell you with complete certainty that the explanation USAFA officials provided Congress was a lie.

In 2017, Goodwin arrived at USAFA for her new billet with her “wife” and two children. While Goodwin’s choice of a mate is just that, her “LBGTQ” status undoubtedly elevated her above other qualified candidates for the Commandant post.

Our sources in the Air Force community indicate that Goodwin’s removal was not based on moral or criminal grounds, but because of well-documented caustic communications with subordinates, “climate and leadership issues,” as affirmed by NPR.

Unfortunately, some women in military leadership positions tend to be toxic leaders when endeavoring to prove they are better than any male counterpart. But under the Obama administration, there was a reluctance to take action against such women because subordinate and superior officers were concerned about reprisal.

Our military analyst, former Marine officer Charles Paige, notes, “Some female leaders are out to prove to everyone that they’re the Alpha. There are plenty of male flag/general officers who think fear and intimidation are good leadership traits, but percentage-wise there’s a higher proportion of female flag/general officers that demonstrate it, and of those, the gender-disoriented subset even more so.”

Brig. Gen. Michele Edmondson will assume Goodwin’s post in June.
