This is according to Scott Kesterson, host of "BardsFM," who made the claim on the July 21 episode of his show on Brighteon.TV.
"The military's primary objective right now is getting rid of those that would object to illegal orders," said Kesterson. "The function of the vax guarantees that those core people that refuse to listen to orders and have proclaimed that the … mandatory vaccinations were illegal orders, the military wants them out."
"Those should be our heroes, they should be our new leadership in the military, but that's not what the military sees," he continued. Kesterson added that the American Deep State has essentially purged the military because it wants soldiers to take an active role in cracking down on dissent.
Kesterson noted that the military's powers are being increased at a steady pace. The military is already working with Homeland Security in several ways, including surveilling Americans on the internet, and Democrats in the House of Representatives are suggesting blocking Congress from the oversight of the military and National Guard when they are deployed domestically.

As the economy collapses and as the federal government expands its powers under the guise of so-called climate change, the possibility of the entire military being used to enforce this future "is becoming increasingly real," Kesterson added.
Based on recent data from the U.S. Army, as many as 40,000 National Guardsmen and 22,000 Army Reserve soldiers have refused to take COVID-19 vaccines.
While these reservists and guardsmen have not been officially discharged from either the military or the National Guard, the U.S. Army has cut them off from their military benefits, making staying extremely difficult.
"Soldiers who refuse the vaccination order without an approved or pending exemption request are subject to adverse administrative actions, including flags, bars to service and official reprimands," said an Army spokesperson in a statement.
Active service members who refused to be vaccinated have already been disciplined, court-martialed or discharged. Others were even forced to pay back scholarships, education and other privileges they availed of using their status as active members of the military.
The announcement noted that this represented 13 percent of the Army National Guard and 12 percent of the Army Reserve. In six states alone, between 20 to 30 percent of Army guardsmen are unvaccinated and at risk of dismissal. In 43 other states, over 10 percent of Guard troops remain unvaccinated.
Furthermore, another 3,000 Army reservists and Army National Guard members who filed for religious exemption requests did not have their requests granted.
"We are losing many of our best warriors with real combat and leadership experience from the Iraq and Afghanistan theaters of war, which cannot be replaced," warned Jonathan Hullihan, an attorney who served as a Navy JAG officer for over 13 years. "If military leadership fails to portray a candid and accurate threat to the Biden Administration that these actions directly threaten the United States' national security, Congress must intervene."
