Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military by Matthew Lohmeier


Sebastian Gorka

Look at what the Navy did recently, they have a drag queen quote, “artiste” put into a combat uniform. To do what? Recruit more drag queens. What does our enemy think about that? They’re laughing at us. Dear friends, it’s serious business. A man who knows just how badly the neo-Marxist rot has penetrated the armed forces is the man who calls himself the first veteran of the Space Force. And that’s not for a good reason. He is a patriot. His name is Matthew Lohmeier. Matthew, welcome back to America First.

Matthew Lohmeier

Happy to be back. Thanks.

Sebastian Gorka

Tell people who missed your story and haven’t read your book, why are you the first veteran of Space Force? How did that happen?

Matthew Lohmeier

I was one of the first sessions into the Space Force when it was first stood up. December 2019 is when the Space Force became a reality, thanks to President Trump and Pence championing the idea that had been a bipartisan idea for quite some time before they came into office. I end up transitioning out of the Air Force into that Space Force.

I had flown F-15s, I had done space-based missile warning for the Air Force, which was responsible for most of our national security space assets, and then transitioned into the Space Force and was placed in command of our nation’s space-based missile warning out in Colorado.

Unfortunately, the time I came into command– fortunately, I suppose, depending on how one looks at it — is that was a time in the summer of 2020 that we had just seen George Floyd’s death reported in the news, and you saw what was literally a neo-Marxist activism hit the streets in this country.

It looked to the American observer like Black Lives Matter, Antifa and others who seemed to be craving some kind of new purpose in their lives, smashing police cars, smashing the windows on buildings, and terrorizing the American people. Unfortunately, that impulse, which is really a spiritual impulse of sorts, was prolific.

All of a sudden, for the first time in my military career, throughout the Defense Department, you had activists high and low of various ranks, of various races, who seized the opportunity to join in their voices with the other activists, whether it be online or in the military workplace and politicize.

Sebastian Gorka

The political activism in uniform was rescinded in general, so Trump hats could be worn and people could talk about the Bible.

Matthew Lohmeier

Yeah, it is a good idea that our military remain relatively apolitical, at least in the workplace. Now senior leaders have a roughly speaking, political job. But no, absolutely, the obligation is to be rather apolitical.

And yet there was a left wing — and make no mistake about it, that’s precisely what it was — it was a radical left-wing politicization of the military workplace.

Now it’s turned into not just a politicization, but a sexualization of the military workplace. When we talk about hiring a drag queen to be the digital ambassador for the United States Navy, I mean, it’s really getting out of hand quickly. Despite the fact that both service members and the American people are waking up to this problem that we’re facing — not just in American society, but in the military.

Let me mention this one more thing. Here’s the unfortunate reality. It is deemed non-political to spout the left-wing talking points when wearing the uniform of your country. It’s like, well, that’s just “be accepting, be inclusive”.

But if you have someone that speaks up and identifies these talking points as a problem in the military workplace, they have a label slapped on them immediately. It’s, well, they’re politically partisan. They’re ‘alt-right’. They’re ‘white supremacist’.

I’ll tell you, it has really disincentivized our men and women in uniform from either continued service or young men and women who had aspirations to join the military from joining.

After all, people are really disappointed by what they’re seeing right now. So we have to fix this problem.

Sebastian Gorka

My wife and her former colleague at the Heritage Foundation, Mike Gonzalez, have written a piece. I commend it to all of you. It’s titled How Cultural Marxism Threatens the United States and How Americans Can Fight It. Katie and Mike came up with this concept of Next-Gen Marxist. This is a new kind of Marxism. It pits us against each other, not based on class and socioeconomic background, but gender, skin color, and what have you.

You wrote the book. It’s “Irresistible Revolution“. Everybody needs to read this. “Marxism’s Goal of Conquest and Unmaking of the American Military”.

You may have left Space Force, but you’re not giving up. So tell us a little bit, as much as you can about this new project that you have ventured upon.

Matthew Lohmeier

I have been, ever since I separated in the fall of 2021, tried to stay in touch with our service members of all branches of the military, first off, and I interact with them still. Some of them still reach out to me. As recently as this week, two new service members have reached out to me saying, hey, please help. I’m in a bind here because of the politics at my base. That’s been things like the COVID shot mandate, which is now gone fortunately, but also just the race talk and the sexualization of the workplace. So there’s that, and that has not stopped.

I’ve been speaking around the country, but there’s another project that I’m throwing my energy into at the moment. I think it’s going to be very impactful. It won’t be seen publicly by the American people probably in the next couple of months, but they will hear about it soon. I’m hoping to try and solve some of the problems as well as educate all American people, regardless of where they sit on the political spectrum, frankly, because everyone — Democrat, Republican and unaffiliated — need to be willing to learn about how this is affecting the military soldier.

So I’m working on a documentary film, and I’ve got an exceptionally talented documentary filmmaking crew.

Sebastian Gorka

So you have faith that this is salvageable, that the US military is salvageable?

Matthew Lohmeier

Yes. If certain things take place, we need people speaking up no matter what their sphere of influence is. But I don’t know that it’s possible with the current administration, quite frankly, because . . . . .

Sebastian Gorka

Their objective is the opposite.

Matthew Lohmeier

Their policy is the opposite. Senior military leaders, both civilian and uniform wearing, are able to point to the administration and lay blame upon the administration, whether they support the agenda or they don’t.

Sebastian Gorka

And your take when the most senior military individual in the United States says, “I don’t know what CRT is, but I think it’s great that West Point is teaching it,” or when Mark Milley says, “I’m white and I want to know what white rage is.” They’ve won. Haven’t the Marxists won?

Matthew Lohmeier

Well, they are winning when that happens.

Let me tell you what’s more concerning to me is that people who once had the respect of the entire force instantly lose credibility with men and women in uniform — instantly — and it’s hard to get back.

So you cannot be a political animal while you’re in uniform if you expect to maintain the trust and respect and loyalty of the entire force. And that’s precisely what they’re doing wrong at the moment.

Sebastian Gorka

All right. He’s a brave man. You’ve got to read the book. It is “Irresistible Revolution“. Follow him right now @MatthewLohmeier.

He has endeavored to bring us a new product. He can’t release all of the information right now, but he said to me outside, this is part and parcel of how we recover the US military.

Have faith, dear friends, even if you’re still in uniform. Why? We’ve been here before. Not this bad, but if you remember the Carter years, it was bad. It was drug use. It was all kinds of things inside the military. It was a loss of faith in the institutions. But thanks to Ronald Reagan, we recovered. We can do it again if we have the requisite leadership and truth tellers like Matt.


Can The US Military Be Saved?

Watch The Liberty Monks Roundtable featuring LTC Matt Lohmeier, Major General Joe Arbuckle (USA ret) and retired Lt. General Rod Bishop (USAF ret).

The Liberty Monks welcome the founders of STARRS which educates our fellow Americans on the dangers of racist and radical ideologies infiltrating our military in order to eliminate these divisive influences and maintain a unified and cohesive fighting force.

Lt Gen Rod Bishop, USAF (Ret.) is the founder of STARRS and served on active duty for 34 years as an aircraft commander, instructor pilot, and flight examiner. He commanded airmen at every operational level, including two squadrons, an operations group, an airlift wing, and a numbered air force. General Bishop’s last assignment was as Commander, 3rd Air Force, United States Air Forces in Europe at Ramstein Airbase in Germany, where he oversaw all American air and space activities in 93 countries in Europe and Africa.

MG Joe Arbuckle, USA (Ret.) first enlisted in the Army in 1968, and was later commissioned in the Ordnance Corps upon graduating from Officer Candidate School in 1970. Having volunteered for duty as an Infantry Officer, he served a year in Vietnam as an Advisory Team Detachment Commander and as an Assistant District Senior Advisor. He has commanded troops at multiple levels, including as Commanding General of the Joint Ground Task Force, which included an Army and Marine Brigade, as well as Commanding General of Industrial Operations Command (IOC), which was later redesignated the US Army Operations Support Command. General Arbuckle retired after 30 years of dedicated service.

Matthew Lohmeier (Former Lt. Col) is author of the bestselling book Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military. His book was published in May 2021, at which time Matt was a respected active-duty commander in the newly formed US Space Force. For publishing and speaking about his book, then-Lieutenant Colonel Lohmeier was relieved of his command and subjected to an Inspector General investigation launched from the Pentagon. He subsequently joined the nation’s biggest media personalities to discuss the proliferation of Marxist-rooted critical race theory (CRT) in the military and its divisive impact on the force and mission. Matt separated from active duty on September 1, 2021, and is now a highly sought public speaker and private consultant on matters of Marxist ideology and tactics, CRT, the betterment of military culture, and the preservation of our liberties.

Saving Military Academies From Wokeness

Legal Insurrection Foundation  held an online event: “Saving the Military Service Academies from Wokeness” featuring Matt Lohmeier, author of the bestselling book, Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military.

The book was published in May 2021, at which time he was a respected active-duty commander in the newly formed U.S. Space Force. For publishing and speaking publicly about his book, then-Lieutenant Colonel Lohmeier was relieved of his command and subjected to an Inspector General investigation within the Pentagon.

Lohmeier later joined veteran-led nonprofit group STARRS (Stand Together Against Racism and Radicalism in the Services) and actively works to educate Americans about the dangers of racist and radical ideologies infiltrating our military.

Kemberlee Kaye of Legal Insurrection was the host of the event. Founder William Jacobson spoke about Legal Insurrection Foundation’s recently released Military Service Academies database at CriticalRace.org cataloguing Critical Race training in military service academies.

Their research confirms that all five federal service academies have some form of critical race, anti-racism, or related objectives.


Marxism In U.S. Military Exposed: The Intentional Plan To Dismantle America’s Armed Forces

Matt was interviewed on The Stew Peters Show.

Stew contends that the COVID vaccine mandate has more to do with purging the military of those willing to refuse the vaccine in order to create a new military that is more politically compliant if it ever had to be used against Americans.

For his part, former Lieutenant Colonel Matt Lohmeier stated that the overall situation is dire and he describes how he wrote his book Irresistible Revolution to warn the country and its leadership of the dangers of the Marxist infiltration.

Though his book was apolitical – indeed, its focus was to highlight the dangers of advocating political activism in the military – he was fired from his position as a squadron commander in the Space Force. Ironically, Lohmeier was compelled to leave the service for engaging in politics, specifically the need for the military to be apolitical.

It used to be that one thing all Americans could agree on was that Marxism is anti-American. Communism was the enemy and, if allowed to infiltrate, would destroy our country and way of life. Marxism was what we fought the Cold War over!

Matt implores all Americans not to give up, but rather get involved and stand up for America and help turn things around.

STARRS interview with Matt Lohmeier

Matt was interviewed by Col. Ron Scott, PhD, USAF ret on the STARRS podcast, “The Intellectuals”.

Air Force Academy graduate and former US Space Force Lt Col Matthew Lohmeier was relieved of his squadron command for writing and promoting Irresistible Revolution, Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & The Unmaking of the American Military.

Matt discusses how he identified the threat and discussed his concerns with his peers and superiors before and during the process of writing the book; most of whom shared his concerns.

He warned of how political the service was getting and trends of illegal discrimination and unethical behavior. For this, he was fired for being politically partisan.

He has no regrets about his actions that led to him separating from the military because he was doing the right thing to defend our country and constitution; and he still is.


The Whistleblower Files: The Marxist Conquest of Our Military

Matthew Lohmeier is the former Space Force Commander who was fired after speaking out against the growing influence of Marxist ideology in military training.

Has The Military Gone WOKE? – Space Force Commander Opens Up

Matthew Lohmeier was interviewed by Valuetainment show host Patrick Bet-David where they talk about ideologies that are infecting the military, how politics is effecting the way the military runs and how wokeism is having an impact.

Some comments from the video on YouTube:

This man is intelligent, emotionally balanced and I would speculate spiritually mature. If this type of person is being purged from military leadership warning bells should be going off.

Thank you for standing up against the tyranny. I’m an army veteran and I’m very concerned about the future.

As an army special ops ca & PsyOp soldier I am So grateful to see other buddy from Air Force to risk his career to wake American people up and be the frontline of fighting Marxists . Thank you both of you.

What a PROFESSIONAL!!! I’m a Marine, and I’d follow this Man. “DO RIGHT, AND FEAR NO MAN” is my motto.

This episode is, by far, your best yet! As a Marine I can say that Lt. Col Lohmeier makes me proud. I couldn’t agree with you more when you said that he can explain very key concepts in a way that is clear, concise, and to the point. Thank you for your courage Lt. Col Lohmeier.

This was a powerful, compelling interview. Riveting, honest, truthful discourse. I wish every impressionable, visionary youth could benefit from hearing this brave patriot’s story. Lt. Col. Lohmeier is a clear eyed, brilliant communicator!!

That was an exceptional and very interesting interview so knowledgeable and I am thinking how much people can learn from somebody like him. It was awesome and he is so well rounded in his perceptions in his own thinking and processes of assessment of issues. And so astute in the way he encapsulated details and gathered all those strands of the issue. I’m amazed at this guy really am and it takes a lot to impress me.

This was the best interview I’ve seen in a long time.

Before retiring from the Air Force, Lt Col M. Lohmeier was the kind of Commander we all prayed for! The man is absolutely brilliant. Thank you, Sir.

This is by far one of your best interviews. Our military has made a huge mistake going woke and infecting an otherwise pristine institution with political movements.

We need many more Matthew Lohmeier’s. Brilliant man with passion and the courage to uphold, defend and protect our Constitution. Blessings to him and those with the courage, no matter the cost, to keep our freedoms, liberties and justice for all.

This man is incredible. Long as we still have men like this there is hope.

Very impressive that he chose to speak the truth & stand by his convictions over his military career. A great example to men young and old. We need more leaders like him.

One of the most well spoken individuals I’ve ever heard give an interview. Hands down.

Mathew Lohmeier explains extremely well the process by which the seeds of subversive ideas are planted in the soil of a society and encouraged to germinate and then grow into open revolt against traditional customs and beliefs. I found him to be highly intelligent and very good at explaining his reasoning. Thank you both for this interview.

This interview should be broadcasted so the ones who are still asleep, will wake the fork up!! God Bless you Patrick for having such guest and God Bless this Patriot for coming up and talking about it! I have been color blind for almost 27 years since I came to this country, but now I am forced to see them??!! I refuse to do so because all I see is people or Americans and no colors or shades of any kind!! For someone who was born and raised in USSR, this sounds really frightening! The greatest country on planet Earth is being destroyed from within and we are the ones who can stop it!

The military is definitely not the same. I have two years to get to 20 and that’s all I am going to do. Before I wanted to stay longer but it is just so different now that I’m doing 20 and retire.

Thank you for bringing this topic to your show. I was born in Cuba, and came to the states when I was 8 years old. Personally I had the unfortunate experience to live under communism. This form of government has failed in every state where it’s been implement ed. The communist are great at class warfare, they divide families, they divide friends and once in power they destroy nations

I’m in the Air Force and I concur. Too much politics in the service. Wrong focus on many levels.

I doubt that We have seen a better interview than that one. Thank you Col. And thank you Patrick! The Col. Is right on the money! We have not heard a better analysis of the the crisis that is upon this nation and it’s people and it’s military! This needs to be more widely disseminated to help our citizenry understand that there is a cabal of Socialist/Communists/citizens seeking to overthrow our government but more importantly our Constitution! It is real and it is NOW!

Listening to this Interview really captured my attention. It was very inspiring and breath taking with lots of food for thoughts.

This officer is brave to speak the truth in this day and age.

This guy is a leader and well balanced. He is an indivual that makes America proud to be and fight for American values. He is a real man with courage and dignity.
God bless this young man and hopefully other strong men and women will follow his lead.

I was fortunate enough to be selected by my Air Force to go to the United States and graduate as a fighter pilot as one of your own. You, Americans, made me the aviator I became, good and ready to stand by you in peace or war. I cherish that deeply in my heart. As a foreign student, I was treated as one of you, and I was ready to join you when I was selected again to come back to your country as an Instructor Pilot to train your pilots (NATO business). You trusted me by flying your jets and gave me all your support. I was glad to be given the opportunity to pay back the investment you made in me years before, as a student pilot – my US instructors, the money, the time, and the trust. All my former students became USAF fighter pilots and some went on to engage in combat in Iraque. I am proud of them.
The USAF I knew, back in the day, had women, African-Americans, Asians, Hispanics, gays, lesbians, and whatever, and nobody noticed a difference. Nobody cared. We were under the rule: -” don’t ask don’t tell”. As long as you are a wonderful human being, and competent at what you do, nobody gives a shit about anything else. It was wonderful to engage with everybody in this environment regardless of. I had a blast. There was no color, no gender disputes. We were ONE. Now, what do I see? Woke crap. I will not be your wingman anymore. You destroyed the very essence of a combat-ready institution. I do not trust you. You betrayed the sacred line of not leaving your fellow behind like you did in Afghanistan. For you, it is more important “inclusion and girls raised by two moms” than hardcore fighters ready to go to war and win it. I will fight my wars on my own without you. Thank you but no thank you. It hurts to make such a stand but you are not trusted anymore. You would abandon me on the battlefield for sure. Count me out. Send your diverse and equitable gender-neutral to die. I don’t give a damn. Pansies!
Allow me to salute you Matthew.


Huckabee Show Interview

Matthew Lohmeier was on the Huckabee Show to discuss why he was relieved from the Space Force for criticizing Marxism.

Some comments on the video:

This Military officer is truly an American HERO and I thank you sir for your service and integrity to the constitution and our Country! Keep up the good fight because millions of American Veterans and patriots are behind you 100 %!

Thank you Commander Matt Lohmeier for your service and love for this country. Please continue being yourself, a man of faith and integrity. Let’s all believe that the military and the whole country will get rid of the rubbish that is being forced upon us.

I’m impressed with this man the colonel, and that’s not an easy thing to do

Never had much time for brass but id follow that colonel on a frontal assault against the gates of hades…. Ooorah Colonel Thank you for remembering the value of the oath.

Thank you from an old retired marine. I would of been honored to have you as a commander

I’m a retired service member from the army, and have seen the transformation of the military today, slowly in the direction of leftist thinking. We need patriots who believes in protecting the essence of our country, culture and protection of the American people. Thanks Matt for your dedication to service.

I have been retired from the USAF for more than 35 years and have had some of the same thoughts Col Lohmeier has just voiced and I have been thinking that maybe I am the only one who has had these thoughts. My oath has no expiration date. I say thank you col Lohmeier for your comments and I would like to remind all of the members of the armed services that they only have to follow orders which are “LAWFUL”

What an impressive individual this man is, can we get anymore like him?

I wish I could like this 1000 times. He took an oath to protect us from enemy’s foreign and domestic. He was doing his job as a patriot and a warrior.

It’s a breath of fresh air to see a real American sacrificing his career and so much more, just to make a point that we all need to pay close attention to. This man is a hero not only for writing a book but for serving our country. Bless you sir and I hope your message does not fall on deaf ears.

As a service member, it is absolutely appalling that this man was relieved of his command. We need more leaders like him, not less. Pray for America.

Thank you for standing up for all of us.

He has sacrificed a lot in order to get the word out to everyone. A man of integrity.

So proud of Colonel Matt Lohmeier for your service and your courage to stand against the wrongs going on within this administration and the Obama administration. Thank you for your service!

Thank you for having the integrity and courage to loudly proclaim what has needed such proclamation for decades! Thank you!

A great American hero…..the left will not like this, and as a retired Navy Commander, you have my support.

I was born in a land similar to marxist plus more as a ex-military I SALUTE COLONEL Lohmeier for patriotism and honesty ‘ GOD BLESS YOU
