An Alternate View on NASIC and Mikey Weinstein
[S]ome employees of the National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base could use some counseling on what diversity really means when they are ready to go to court over a charity’s religious affiliation…
Mikey Weinstein may have a wonderful second career as boss of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation and he probably believes that he represents “victims” of religious intolerance. Thus, he is empowered to enforce his view that religion has no place in the military…This is diversity? This is tolerance?…
Weinstein’s strafing mission should be shot down with a barrage of civility, understanding and respect for others and more than a little education in what the country’s founders — imperfect as all of us remain today — had in mind. WILLIAM H. WILD, OAKWOOD
Michael “Mikey” Weinstein’s acolyte has been particularly active in Ohio, making the VA and Wright Patterson (including NASIC) the source of a significant number of MRFF complaints.
It seems not everyone else agrees, however.
Incidentally, the MRFF isn’t Weinstein’s second career — it’s probably closer to his tenth. Weinstein’s various money-making ventures over the years are fascinating, spanning the spectrum from batteries, to software and technology, to hunting down deadbeat dads. Not all of those were successful, unfortunately. (Your career can’t be doing too well when your employer essentially files a “settlement agreement” to have you leave after about a year.) Even now, he has “moonlighted” in a six-figure deal (with himself) in his MIBON Consulting.
(It must be a popular thing to do; even his underpaid research assistant Chris Rodda went in with former MRFF “client” Paul Loebe and started their own “Organic Promotions.”)
If nothing else, his lengthy resume of short jobs is a statement on Mikey Weinstein’s financial drive and his entrepeneurship — which should give you some perspective on why he started his “charity”, and why he’s the only paid officer — and why he’s so highly paid.
