No Transgender Troops Allowed, President Trump Announces Military Ban

Experts believe this is an efficient move from President Trump, despite the fact it would probably have a strong reaction among some members of the LGBT community.

Experts believe this is an efficient move from President Trump, despite the fact it would probably have a strong reaction among some members of the LGBT community.

President Donald Trump announced on Twitter a couple of hours ago that transgender citizens will not be allowed to serve in the military, explaining that the U.S. Armed Forces cannot be burdened with the significant medical costs and disruption of transgender people. In addition, the commander in chief told this decision was made after consulting with Generals and military experts.

Naturally, this move represents another serious hit to one of Obama’s previous initiatives, given the fact that his administration had the intention of adding transgender troops to the U.S. Armed Forces. Experts believe this is an efficient move from President Trump, despite the fact it would probably have a strong reaction among some members of the LGBT community.

Vice President Mike Pence and House Republicans have already taken major steps to block funding for transgender surgeries provided by the military, explaining that the defense budget is already strained.

Back in May, Mattis distributed a document to military leaders allowing them to voice their concerns on this issue. The memo was carefully crafted to explain that plans proceed unless they could undermine the ability to fight and win on the battlefield.

According to Axios, a Trump administration source told that the announcement was made in order to draw political battle lines. Analysts believe this strategy could be quite beneficial to him, in a moment where the controversy about his situation with Attorney General Jeff Sessions is covering almost every front-page of the news outlets.

In 2016, the Pentagon decided to lift the ban on transgender individuals already in uniform, and established the conditions and timeline by which every new applicant could join either through enlistment or as officer candidates.

President Trump’s tweets came only a few weeks after Defense Secretary James Mattis announced he would give military chiefs another six months to conduct a deep review in order to verify if allowing transgender citizens to enlist in the armed services will somehow affect the force’s efficiency in the battlefield. Naturally, Trump’s announcement is also controversial in this sense, given the fact the deadline for that review was December 1.

During his confirmation hearing back in January, Mattis was asked whether he believed that allowing LGBT members to serve in the U.S. military or woman in combat would undermine the force’s lethality. He told that he never cared too much about two consenting adults and who they go to bed with.

So far, the Pentagon has refused to release any data on the number of transgender troops currently serving. Nevertheless, a RAND investigation found that there are between 2,500 and 7,000 transgender service members in the active-duty military, and another 1,500 to 4,000 in reserves.

The Pentagon announced that it would continue to work with the White House in order to address the new guidance on transgender individuals serving in the military that commander in chief provided.

According to the Military Times, the army and the Marines have put up the strongest resistance to allowing transgender troops to serve in the military.

The President’s announcement comes as lawmakers on Capitol Hill debate the current practice of requiring the Pentagon to pay for medical treatment for the gender transition. Regarding this issue, Missouri Republican Rep. Vicky Hartzler has offered an amendment that would prohibit it from spending money on these surgeries or even hormone therapy. This amendment has been tucked into the nearly $700 billion spending bill the Congress will take up.

On the other hand, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told that Trump’s decision was cruel and arbitrary, since she assured without showing any kind of proof that it was designed only to humiliate transgender Americans. Furthermore, she told the President has chosen this day to unleash a hateful agenda that will blindside thousands of Americans already serving.

Key concerns among this particular matter include whether currently enlisted troops have had medical or other issues that cause delays or any kind of problem with their ability to deploy or meet physical or other standards for their jobs.

In addition, officials assured that military leaders also wanted to review how these troops are treated, if they are discriminated or if they have had any disciplinary problems. These officials spoke on condition of anonymity since they were not authorized to discuss internal deliberations publicly.

According to the Military Times, the army and the Marines have put up the strongest resistance. This media outlet also reported a former Pentagon official told that Mattis’ predecessor sought to define accommodations for transgender troops, but he encountered significant internal resistance among the civilian staff, who assured the military’s uniformed leadership did not support the change.

Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff Says He Will Not Honor Trump Transgender Ban

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on Thursday advised that the U.S. military will not make any changes to its transgender policy until President Trump clarifies his statements on Twitter from Wednesday.

Joseph Dunford released his statement on Thursday.

NBC News reported:

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on Thursday advised that the U.S. military will not make any changes to its transgender policy until President Donald Trump clarifies what he meant in a series of surprise tweets.

“I know there are questions about yesterday’s announcement on the transgender policy by the president. There will be no modifications to the current policy until the president’s direction has been received by the secretary of defense and the secretary has issued implementation guidance,” Joe Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said in a memo to military leaders.

“In the meantime, we will continue to treat all of our personnel with respect,” Dunford added.

Pentagon leaders were left scrambling Wednesday after tweets from the president announcing a ban on transgender people serving in the armed forces.

President Trump announced Wednesday morning transgender people will no longer be allowed to serve in the United States military.

President Trump:

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 costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you

This was one more messaging mistake by Trump.

Proclaiming new policy on Twitter should not be happening. It makes him look nuts. Further, Mattis is on vacation and just learned about it from Trump's twitter and the media.

But, in support of the policy, gender junk is a lie. The perversion is bi sexual and homo sexual, not bigender and homogender.

Gender is nothing. It cannot be proven, it has no scientific basis and we all know, it denies the reality of science. These confused dolts need Jesus and/or psychiatric care until they grown up and longer.

The military is supposed to be one body, unified in patriotic duty and self-sacrifice, in the service of our country. People who don't know who the hell they are do not belong there, and WE the PLUNDERED should NOT be forced to pay for their crap.

Everybody goes through identity confusion at some point in their lives. Deal with it. Get help. Pray. Don't rob WE the PLUNDERED. SICK OF IT AND THEM.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
