Yes folks, those explosions that you’ve likely been hearing for most of the day, and, I imagine, will continue to hear for quite some time, are the heads exploding of liberals all across this great nation. And why is that, you ask? Well it’s because President Donald J. Trump announced today, via Twitter, that he is not allowing transgender people to serve in the U.S. military, a complete reversal of ex-president Obummers’s decision last year to let them serve. In a series of tweets, President Trump said: “After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical cost and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you.” Finally some commonsense, and I LOVE it!
The sweeping policy decision reverses the gradual transformation of the military under Obummer, whose administration announced last year that transgender people could serve openly in the military. Obummer’s Defense Secretary, Ash Carter, also opened all combat roles to women and appointed the first openly gay Army secretary. It was not clear what prompted Mr. Trump’s announcement earlier today. In June, the administration delayed a decision on whether to allow transgender recruits to join the military. At the time, Defense Secretary James Mattis said an extra six months would give military leaders a chance to review its potential impact. The president’s announcement came amid a debate on Capitol Hill over the Obummer-era practice of requiring the Pentagon to pay for medical treatment related to gender transition. The dispute has unfolded as Congress considers a nearly $700 Billion spending bill to fund the Pentagon.
Troops earlier this year had begun receiving military training on accommodating transgender troops, but Defense Secretary Mattis this summer decided to delay allowing them to serve. The decision also comes after Mattis issued multiple memos indicating that decisions should be based on whether it makes the military more lethal. One memo put an end to all training that was not related to military readiness and blasted Pentagon officials for wasting as much as $28 Million on Afghan camouflage uniforms that don’t actually blend in with Afghan terrain. All I can say is, it’s about damn time. Thank God our country has a real Commander in Chief again. Thank you President Trump for stopping this madness. As someone who retired from the Navy back in 2002, all this transgender crap hadn’t come along yet. When I was in it was during the ‘Slick Willy’s’ “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, and personally I had no issues with that. But that just wasn’t good enough for Obummer.
Ya know, it’s so annoying when people like Obummer, and just about every other Democrat who would NEVER even consider risking life or limb for their country, go around expecting those who chose to do so to adopt something that will only increase the chances of their injury or death by pulling resources and focus away from the real training that’s required for their mission. Obummer did everything he could to undermine and demoralize men in general, the military was an easy target for him and a high value one at that. This was a great decision by President Trump. The military is not the place for gender or sexual politics. It is a simple matter of fact that transgender individuals are more prone to depression and suicide and to give them guns in a stressful situation is almost certain to lead to the loss of innocent lives. Furthermore, the American taxpayer should not be forced to subsidize the tremendous costs associated with these surgical procedures.
Just because those serving in the military are essentially little more than a captive audience, doesn’t mean that they should be exploited by Democrats trying to force their twisted morals on the rest of us. What the vast majority of those on the left seem to forget is that the military is not there to be treated as some sort of Petri dish for kinky leftists to conduct their perverted experiments on. The military is there as a fighting force, and the sole purpose for its existence is to keep this country safe from attack and to put the fear of God into anyone who might think that attacking the United States would be in any way a good idea. Allowing gays and transgenders to serve does absolutely nothing to improve combat readiness. If anything it only serves to weaken it, which is just what those on the left want to see happen. After eight long years of having someone who was simply not up to the task of being Commander in Chief, it would appear that at last we finally do.
