Navy Secretary: If Trump Rolls Back Female Integration, There Will Be Consequences

But by far the most controversial move has been the full integration of women into all combat positions–without exception. Mabus willingly involved himself in public spats with Marine Corps leadership over a study the service had conducted showing that mixed-gender units weren’t nearly as effective as all-male units. They outperformed mixed-gender units on 69 percent of tasks.Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus said recently in a December interview that while GOP President-elect Donald Trump can roll back social change in the military, doing so will make the force weaker.

Mabus, who has served in the position longer than anyone since World War I, has overseen significant social changes in the military and caused a lot of consternation in the process. Now, in a wide-ranging interview with The Washington Post, he’s warning that if Trump rolls back social change in the military, he should admit that it will damage the force.Image result for secretary of the navy

“You make the decisions you think are right, right now, regardless what you think is going to happen in the future,” Mabus said. “But we are stronger because of this integration. That is undeniably true. So, if it gets rolled back, you’re weakening the United States military. You’re weakening the Navy. You’re weakening the Marine Corps. If that’s what you want to do, okay. But you have to be honest about it.”

Both Mabus and Secretary of Defense Ash Carter have maintained that allowing women entry into all combat roles will make the force stronger, as the move could allow access to a larger talent pool.

22 years in Naval Aviation - retired Senior Chief (E-8). 
Females DO NOT belong aboard Naval Vessels, nor do they belong in combat.  They belong in support roles that free up males for combat.  
I had female sailors (WAVES) working for me at NAS Jacksonville and NAS Pensacola and they were excellent technicians.  I had several that were outstanding leaders and went on to attain the rank of "Chief" which is a leadership rank exclusive to the Navy and Coast Guard.

KEEP WOMEN OUT OF COMBAT! ! !

Mr Schneider is totally wrong, a ship is no place for a lady. this should be allowed only on a carrier. 

They should not be allowed on carriers either.

Spot on!   It's a shameful thing to allow women on ships...  There's no place for them.

Sorry ladies but women do not belong in combat and not to say that some women can handle the mental and physical demands of combat but I do not want to put another life in jeopardy to prove that She can do the job, the sad thing is that women today are told that they can do anything a man can do and in most cases they can but combat is something that you must be able to count on the person next to you! 

I agree with the CHIEF, COMPLETELY !!!!!!!

 I was 8 years as an Air Force Air Traffic Controller (Vietnam) and women were not as yet allowed to serve in a Combat role. But, in my opinion, due to many considerations, they  should be kept out of Combat situations, and relegated to serve at non-combat Military Bases where the rigors of Combat Air Traffic Control Operations would not pose any threat to a female controller or to the  operations of such a unit.

Military service should NOT be an EXPERIMENT in SOCIAL REFORM OR CHANGE. But it should be based solely upon the  safe and successful outcome of whatever mission it is assigned to perform. Air Traffic Control is a stressful job in most every circumstance, COMBAT increases that stress exponentially and may require additional physical and/or psychological requirements that would place a female at greater risk than a male or prevent her from reacting correctly to certain situations.

It could be dangerous to place the lives of Pilots and Passengers of Aircraft in needless peril if the right choice of physical and mental applications would NOT be used to merely make a point for a POLITICALLY CORRECT purpose !!!!

Agreed,
One example is Lieutenant Kara Hultgreen, who was killed attempting to land her F-14 Tomcat on the USS Abraham Lincoln. She had been rushed through the system, and had mediocre performance grades.

Had she been a man, she would have been denied flight status. But the liberals would not be denied their agenda, and this woman paid with her life. One more body bag to add to the liberal body count. Now her family grieves and our nation has lost a woman who could have done so much

Women are great in support roles, and provide a valuable national service. Leave combat to the men.

I remember that. Thank Pat Shroeder from Colorado for those two deaths.

I strongly disagree. At least in part. I have seen some outstanding female fighter pilots and I'm sure you have also. There are even a few good Boomer drivers so I would not count them all out because of gender. Our military needs the best they can get at this point in time. Note I did say THE BEST !  ~!Libertas~

We see all these ass holes talking about women in ground combat that have never been in a combat situation other witch socks to wear with there wives.

Bull shit !

Turn Mabus into a female.  That should end the problem.

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
