Space Force Lieutenet Colonel Matthew Lohmeier appeared on Fox News’ “Hannity” Monday to share the details of his recent ousting from a position of Commanding Officer. He revealed to host Sean Hannity that he retains his rank but was recently reassigned over speaking out against marxism on the “Information Operation” podcast.

The Department of Defense called on military commands to hold an extremism ‘stand-down’ day following the Capitol riots. Every base had from February to April to schedule a day to implement the guide provided by the DoD. During Lohmeier’s “down-day,” he claims his base watched a video that proclaimed “the country was evil, that it was founded in 1619 rather than 1776, and that White [people] are inherently evil”. 

According to Lohmeier, he doesn’t believe he broke any regulation that called for being relieved of his position.

“I don’t believe I was being partisan. It is not politically partisan to expose or attack critical race theory or marxism,” Lohmeier told Hannity.

“The reason I say that is because critical race theory and marxism are antithetical to American values. Critical race theory fuels narratives that attack America’s founding documents.”

As a result, Lohmeier says he’s received “thousands” of letters from fellow members of the military who also wish they could speak out as he has. They tell him they’ve “lost their voice.”

Mental health crisis spikes among Afghan women after Taliban regained control two years ago

The women of Afghanistan are suffering a mental health crisis since the Taliban regained power two years ago. According to a joint report from three U.N. agencies released Tuesday, approximately 70% of women experience feelings of anxiety, isolation and depression.

The numbers continue to rise, as there has already been a significant jump between April and June of this year alone, with an increase from 57%  the preceding quarter.

The report, conducted by U.N. Women, the International Organization for Migration and the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, interviewed women online, in-person and in group consultations as well as individual telesurveys.

592 Afghan women in 22 of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces took part in the study. The Associated Press reports:

They have barred women from most areas of public life and work and banned girls from going to school beyond the sixth grade. They have prohibited Afghan women from working at local and non-governmental organizations. The ban was extended to employees of the United Nations in April.

Opportunities to study continued to shrink as community-based education by international organizations was banned and home-based schooling initiatives were regularly shut down by the de facto authorities — a term use by the U.N. for the Taliban government.

Afghanistan is the only country in the world with restrictions on female education and the rights of Afghan women and children are on the agenda of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
