Poll: Only 12 Percent of Military Members Support Transgenders Serving

Military Times is reporting that in a poll conducted in December 2016, 57 percent of active-duty military personnel “expressed a negative opinion of the decision to allowing transgender troops to serve openly.” 

Furthermore, “more than half of that groups said the policy change had a very negative effect on military morale.”

Around 16 percent thought the transgender change would boost troops’ morale, while 27 percent believed the policy change would have no effect.

The survey was conducted two months after Pentagon officials announced transgender individuals already in the military could serve openly.

Roughly 41 percent thought transgenders serving would hurt the units, and around 12 percent believed allowing transgender individuals to serve openly would be beneficial to readiness.

President Trump recently announced what appears to be a dramatic reversal of the Pentagon’s current transgender policies, citing readiness issues.

“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,” Trump wrote in a tweet last week.

The online survey of U.S. service members was conducted between Dec. 16 and 21, 2016, by the Military Times and Syracuse University’s Institute for Veterans and Military Families. The survey received 1,664 responses from active-duty troops.

In Related News.. Retired Military Officers Thank Trump For His New Transgender Policy

"More than a dozen retired flag-ranking officers representing all branches of the U.S. military penned a letter to President Donald Trump late last week thanking him for announcing plans to ban transgender individuals from serving in the Armed Forces."


Why should any red-blooded American patriot/male, be forced to worry/wonder about other men who cannot control either their sex drive or their fantasy life, much less worry about someone who is just plain out of control with who they are. I believe homosexuals should go back in the closet and all trannies need to find the best psychiatrist they can. What a mess, to feel like a man in a woman's body, and go through that mess of converting (supposedly) only to find out that then they are a woman in a man's body? Good grief.

it's a mess





Newsweek’s Headquarters
Raided By The NYPD

The headquarters of Newsweek was raided by the NYPD Thursday morning. Police reportedly took photos of the magazine’s servers.

New York Post reports:

About two dozen NYPD officers and investigators from the Manhattan district attorney’s office raided the offices of Newsweek and its parent company, IBT Media, on Thursday.

IBT Media was co-founded by Jonathan Davis and Etienne Uzac. The IRS placed a $1.2 million federal tax lien against Uzac in December 2017.

The agents were said to be photographing servers in the offices, but not downloading any files at the offices on 7 Hanover Square, according to sources.

Few details have emerged from the raid.

“Looking into reports that the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office @ManhattanDA raided Newsweek/IBT Offices today….sources say police have been there for hours. The DA has declined to comment,” tweeted reporter Avi Asher-Schapiro.

Newsweek is also in the news Thursday after an “insider” told The Wrap editor Jon Levine that the magazine has abandoned journalism for “rage clicks,” in the Trump-era.

“Newsweek was once a premiere media organization and an incredible springboard for young journalists hoping to grow a name for themselves,” the source told Levine.

“The company culture has turned the newsroom into a toxic work environment, while the publication has descended into a content farm for last-resort clickbait,” the source added.
