Americans who are confused about which public restroom to use and who join our Armed Forces so that American Taxpayers will have to pay for adding something to or taking something away from their anatomies will now have to pay for their “gender realignment surgery” themselves.
The Associated Press reports that
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump on Friday directed the Pentagon to extend indefinitely a ban on transgender individuals joining the military, but he appeared to leave open the possibility of allowing some already in uniform to remain.Trump gave Defense Secretary Jim Mattis authority to decide the matter of openly transgender individuals already serving, and he said that until the Pentagon chief makes that decision, “no action may be taken against” them.
The Obama administration in June 2016 had changed longstanding policy, declaring that troops could serve openly as transgender individuals. And it set a July 2017 deadline for determining whether transgender people could be allowed to enter the military. Mattis delayed that to Jan. 1, 2018, and Trump has now instructed Mattis to extend it indefinitely.
But on the question of what will happen to those transgender individuals who already are serving openly – estimated to number in the low hundreds – Trump seemed to leave wiggle room for exceptions. A White House official who briefed reporters on the presidential order would not say whether Trump would permit any exceptions.
That official, who spoke on condition of anonymity under ground rules set by the White House, said Mattis has been directed to take a number of factors into consideration in determining how to deal with transgender individuals already serving. Those factors are to include broad measures such as “military effectiveness,” budgetary constraints and “unit cohesion,” as well as other factors Mattis deems “relevant.” It was not clear whether that means it is possible for Mattis to come to the conclusion that some transgender troops should be allowed to remain.
Trump gave Mattis six months to come up with a policy on those currently serving, and he must implement it by March 23, 2018, the official said.
In a tweet last month, Trump said the federal government “will not accept or allow” transgender individuals to serve “in any capacity” in the military.
Carl Tobias, a legal expert at the University of Richmond’s School of Law, said he interprets the Trump directive as leaving open the chance for some transgender service members to stay.
“Trump seems to be granting Mattis discretion to decide which currently serving transgender people can continue to serve,” Tobias said via email. “It appears that Mattis has discretion substantively and procedurally.”
The White House official on Friday said Trump also directed Mattis to halt the use of federal funds to pay for sexual reassignment surgeries and medications, except in cases where it is deemed necessary to protect the health of an individual who has already begun the transition. That policy is to be written within six months and implemented by March 23.
In his directive to Mattis, Trump said he found that his predecessor’s transgender policy was flawed.
“In my judgment, the previous administration failed to identify a sufficient basis to conclude” that ending the longstanding ban on transgender service would not “hinder military effectiveness and lethality” and be disrupting in the ranks, he wrote.
Ever since the states of North Carolina and Mississippi passed laws effectively barring “transgendered” people from using public restrooms of the opposite “biological sex”, in support of traditional American Morals and Values, there has been an epic attempt by “The Smartest and Most Tolerant People in the Room” to blackmail corporations into protesting the states’ efforts, through public proclamation of their displeasure with Americans in the Heartland standing up for themselves.
That “movement” reached its zenith when Former (Thank God) President Barack Hussein Obama announced that “Dress-wearing Johnny” would be allowed to serve in the United States Armed Forces.
So…exactly how large is the “Transgendered Population” of the United States of America?
If you had listened to those, including Former President Barack Hussein Obama and his Administration, who fought so fervently for “Transgendered Rights”, you would have thought that the percentage of our overall population MUST be somewhere in the double digits.
You would have been wrong.
Transgendered Americans actually only number somewhere around 700,000, about 0.3 percent of U.S. adults.
I suppose that the “coming out” of Former Olympic Decathlon and Reality TV Star Bruce Jenner as her new Transgendered Persona, “Caitlyn”, started the snowball down the hill.
However, as I wrote in the time, and still believe, the whole bloody mess could still possibly be nothing but a publicity stunt.
The Kardashians could drive ANYONE crazy.
I wonder if the sales of Wheaties suffered after his/her/its big announcement?
But, I digress…
In researching today’s post, I found several articles in the Main Stream Media and Liberal websites, such as mediamatters.org, lauding how peaceful, wonderful, and harmless Transgendered People are, and how we “Right-wing Hatemongers” and our stated concern about the safety of our wives, girlfriends, and daughters is overblown.
Then, I found articles detailing the problems that American Prisons have been facing, for over 10 years, in dealing with the Transgendered Criminals, who are incarcerated in their facilities.
And, of course, the reports about perverts exposing themselves in public bathrooms, are common on every city’s Police Blotter.
Why have Modern American Liberals been so eager to accommodate the “gender Identity” of .03 % of our population, while simultaneously disrespecting the privacy and advocating a threat to the safety of American women and children?
I propose to you, gentle reader, that this is a part of the continued effort to sublimate Traditional American Values, and even, American Exceptionalism, for the “Good of the State”, in Liberals/Progressives’ ongoing quest to bring America down to the same level as the Socialist Democrat Failures of Europe.
A while back, I had a fellow contributor at what was then “HotGas.com” and is now “SpartaReport.com” attempt to justify these multiple-stall “Unisex” Public Restrooms as being “normal”, because “Europe has had them for years”.
I, attempting to control my incredulity, answered him, by explaining that America is not Europe. 75% of Americans still proclaim themselves to be Christians, while Europe has abandoned both their Faith and their backbones, and is being invaded by Muslims, who are bringing their Sharia Law, with them.
You often hear of the activists, who are a part of the 24% of Americans, who identify themselves as “Liberals”, referred to as the “Hive-mind”, because most of the time, they present themselves in public and on the internet, including Facebook Political Pages, as being in lockstep with one another, regurgitating “the Party Line”, about each and every Hot Button Political Issue, resembling the brainwashed Proletariat of the old Soviet Union.
The actions of North Carolina and Mississippi, went against the unified thought process of Liberals. American Individual Freedom of Thought and Traditional Morality and Value System of America, instilled in the majority of Americans, by American Christianity.
Just as the actions taken by President Trump and his Administration ruins Liberals’ Plans to turn the greatest Force For Freedom in the World into a bunch of Lab Rats for Social Experimentation.
Traditional American Morality and Values are a roadblock to Progressives’ Plans, as regards to the “Good of the State” or their plans for a Socialist Paradise.
So, when you see Liberal Musicians like Bruce Springsteen and Bryan Adams cancel concerts in North Carolina and Mississippi, and Corporations expressing their “concerns” over the passage of laws banning “Cross-dressing Johnny” from Ladies Public Restrooms and now the President’s decision to get them out of our Armed Forces, it is all a part of a concerted effort to get us “all in line”.
Unfortunately for those who espouse the “singularity of thought” of the Hive-mind, they will never win.
We are Americans. We cherish our Faith, our Families, our Freedom of Thought, and our Freedom to remain a Sovereign Nation
We will not be assimilated.
May God Bless our Brightest and Best.
Until He Comes,
