    It reminds me of the locals that prefer American Indian to Native American.

    "
    The governor of Oklahoma versus the Biden administration. The governor of Texas versus the Biden administration. The governor of South Dakota versus the Biden administration.

    Three recent battles between political forces centering on COVID-19 public health policies and immigration.

    And caught in the middle, between state politicians and federal political appointees, are National Guard troops.


    After spending two decades in near constant rotations to the Middle East, National Guardsmen have found themselves in the very center of some of the most heated American political battles of the last few years. The Guard by its very nature is meant to balance a carefully calibrated set of dual roles -- answering to governors but paid for through federal funds and trained by military commanders to handle the national security needs of the nation.

    But sometime in the last few years, the balance between two responsibilities has begun to resemble a tug-of-war.

    "It's the fault of the elected officials," Nathalie Grogan, a research associate for the Center for a New American Security, told Military.com. "They are politicizing members of the military; this is almost unprecedented."

    There have been examples of National Guard troops used by federal officials during fraught political fights -- the civil rights movement featured several instances of the Guard helping to desegregate schools -- but what has made the last few years different is how frequent these events are and how the rhetoric used by elected officials has grown more inflammatory, violent and, in some cases, authoritarian.

    Three recent examples of how governors are seemingly using Guard forces in a power match against the federal government, testing the centuries-old militia rules the Guard still runs on:

    1. The secretary of defense is threatening Guardsmen's pay while trying to enforce vaccine mandates to slow the spread of the coronavirus, as Oklahoma officials have filed a lawsuit against those mandates mirroring burgeoning national political resistance over public health policy.

    2. The Biden administration entered office committed to cooling the escalating military bravado at the Southern border, only to see Texas' governor call up the Guard with minimal notice and, according to some sources, failing to tell Guard leadership in the Pentagon how many troops were being deployed.

    3. In South Dakota, a state that is bordered only by other American states, the governor took private funds from a major donor to Republican politicians to pay for a state Guard deployment to the border with Mexico, rebuking the Biden administration over border policy in the process.

    Pretty much the same. I feel like it’s more relevant on twitter than anywhere else.
