Transgenders in military: impeachable, damaging and expensive

Bryan Fischer

President Obama and the Pentagon have violated the Constitution and committed an impeachable offense by unilaterally admitting transgenders, transvestites, and transexuals into the military.

 

According to Article I, Section 8 only Congress has authority to change the rules which govern the military. Congress has never authorized the induction of those who engage in these behaviors into the armed forces. For the commander-in-chief to make and implement a decision of this magnitude is an impeachable offense on any number of levels, not the least of which is the plan fact that it defies the Constitution and trashes the entire concept of the separation of powers.

This decision will have a negative impact on recruitment, retention, and readiness. A diminishing number of vigorous young males will be interested in joining this kind of military, or signing up for another stretch.

The pragmatic challenges alone are enough to prove this is a terrible idea. Will every military base be retooled to provide completely separate bathrooms and shower rooms and bunkhouses for men who think they are women, and a whole different set for women who think they are men? What about accommodations aboard ships and submarines where space is at a premium? The mind reels at the logistical nightmare this will create for a military whose job is to protect us, not engage in radical and foolish social engineering.

President Obama is drastically downsizing the military, cashiering experienced soldiers, apparently so he can replace them with soldiers who have no idea what sex they are.

This decision will have serious implications for the military budget, which is strained as it is. According to the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association (not part of the vast, right-wing conspiracy) there are at least 10 significant health challenges that transgenders, transvestites, and transexuals face that sexually normal people do not.

According to the GLMA, transgenders are at elevated risks of heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, and diabetes. They have an increased cancer risk due to hormone use. They have an elevated chance of contracting sexually transmitted infections because of the risks they take in sexual matters. They tend to have problems with substance abuse, including alcohol consumption that can damage their livers. They have an elevated risk of obesity and depression, and frequently put themselves at medical risk through silicone injections.

Transgenders will demand hormone injections and sex-change operations at taxpayer expense. In fact, the military will now become the destination of choice for people seeking sex-change operations since they’ll be able to get taxpayers to foot the $30,000 to $50,000 bill.

All of these health risks, of course, come at a cost to taxpayers for treatment, and every one of these health challenges will impact a transgender soldier’s fitness for combat.

If the purpose of changes in military policy is to improve the military and make it more able to face our national security challenges, this is exactly the wrong way to go.

But while this act on the president’s part is an impeachable offense, and represents an unquestioned weakening of military strength, morale, and cohesion, the GOP establishment will, as usual, do absolutely nothing. To my knowledge, we haven’t heard anyone in the GOP establishment complain about this, let alone try to do anything about it. Instead, they are busy sending $500 million to the U.N. to solve the non-existent problem of global warming and scheduling votes on gun control legislation.

  • Federal judge Carlton Reeves blocked Mississippi’s religious liberty law (HB 1523) on grounds that it represents “state-sanctioned discrimination” against LGBTs. But the truth is it’s exactly the other way round. This ruling is judge-sanctioned discrimination against people of faith. For instance, county clerks will now be required to violate their consciences and their deeply held religious convictions or face termination or jail just as Kim Davis did. Reeves has also discriminated against churches, wedding vendors, therapists, schools, and adoption agencies who act on their deeply held convictions about marriage, family and sexuality. The radical homosexual agenda represents the greatest threat to religious liberty in our nation’s history, and this dismal ruling is just further evidence. http://cnn.it/29aeSc2
  • Here’s a chef who refuses to serve a customer on the basis of conscience. Will he get fined $135,000 like the Christian baker in Oregon? If not, we’re looking at just another example of nauseating liberal hypocrisy. Unlike gooses and ganders, what’s good for the chef is not good for the baker. This guy will probably be lionized as a champion of principle even though he is guilty of flagrant discrimination according to the left’s own standards.
  • Japan monitors everyone who embraces an ideology which threatens its national security. Under Mayor Bloomberg, NYPD surveilled mosques, shops, restaurants, and the Muslim community in general, and kept New York safe. Safe, that is, until Mayor DeBlasio came along and undid it all. There is no reason the entire United States cannot do what Bloomberg did in New York for a decade and what Japan is doing today. And the United States should. If our government monitors white supremacists, it certainly should monitor Muslim supremacists.

TRUMP: I’m vindicated by the indictments.

Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The White House on Friday declared that U.S. indictments of Russians for meddling in the 2016 presidential election showed that the campaign of President Donald Trump had nothing to do with an issue that has overshadowed his year in office.

Trump, who was briefed on the indictments, was “glad to see the Special Counsel’s investigation further indicates – that there was NO COLLUSION between the Trump campaign and Russia and that the outcome of the election was not changed or affected,” the White House said in a statement.

“It’s time we stop the outlandish partisan attacks, wild and false allegations, and far-fetched theories, which only serve to further the agendas of bad actors, like Russia, and do nothing to protect the principles of our institutions,” Trump said in the statement.

The Democrat Party Is America’s Communist Party

George Lujack

Published

President Donald J. Trump’s State of the Union address on January 30, 2018 highlighted his administration’s accomplishments during his first year in office, but it also revealed something else, that the Democrat Party is actually the Communist Party. Trump announced that his administration has “created 2.4 million new jobs, unemployment claims have hit a 45-year low, and African-American unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded.”

How did the Democrat elected politicians react to this good news? They sat. They refused to applaud. It was a clear message that Democrats do not care about good news for America or for the American individual.

There can be no doubt, Democrats are Communists.

The late U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy must be rolling in his grave and would have loved to have served as senator in an American time period such as this.

President Donald Trump’s son, Eric Trump said, “Democrats would rather see this country fail than see my father succeed.”

Eric Trump hit on something true, but missed the broader point. Donald Trump, successful entrepreneurial billionaire turned president, is the Democrats worst nightmare.

President Donald Trump wants to unleash American exceptionalism, the capitalist system, the entrepreneurial spirit, and the free market economy. Trump wants to empower the American individual, to open up opportunities for businesses, and make individuals independently reliant and successful, not reliant upon the handouts of the government. President Trump wants to make America great again, and his policies are doing so.

Democrats, on the other hand, are Communists. The Democrat-Communist Party cloaks itself in false labeling. They are not ‘Liberals’ or ‘Progressives,’ whose stated goal is to advance society. Their goal is, and always has been, government regulation and control over the American people.

The Democrat-Communists want to regulate everything that they can. They regulate rainwater acquisition on privately held land, and they would regulate breathing if they could, and even try to do so through global warming initiatives and legislation.

The Democrat Party tries to fool Americans by cloaking themselves as Progressives or Liberals. The Democrat Party is the American Communist Party.

Understanding the Nunes Memo and what it means for the democrats.

Caiden Cowger

Published

Last Friday, the memo was released from Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), who serves as the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Democrats and the mainstream media fought relentlessly to prevent the memo’s public availability, attempting to characterize doing such as risking national security and severely eroding the foundation of the intelligence community. Following the memo’s release, it is now clear that they were attempting to cover up extensively damaging information pertaining to the Democrat’s Russia Investigation and key members of the previous administration.

The Russian Dossier is a compilation of documents that has served as the substantial basis for the Russian Investigation. This dossier was compiled by Fusion GPS and former British spy Christopher Steele. This was not an independent investigation, but rather opposition research subsidized by the Democrat National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. This opposition research was then given to the FBI, within Obama’s Department of Justice, and used to obtain a FISA warrant from the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to install a “wiretap” monitoring the Trump campaign, specifically targeting volunteer Carter Page. This monitorization lasted for a year.

In September 2016, Steele told a senior Justice Department official that he was “desperate that Donald Trump not get elected. He also included that he was “passionate about him not being president.” This reveals that the FBI’s main source of the information behind the Russia Investigation is a staunch liberal who desperately wanted to prevent and terminate Trump’s presidency.

Allegedly, the Justice Department did not discover the bias behind their submitted information until later in October 2016. They began to examine its level of considerable bias, but proceeded to move forward with the Russian probe, despite the realization that the accusations were politically motivated. Not only did they continue, but they omitted this bias in their application to obtain a warrant.

“Shortly after the election, the FBI began interviewing Ohr, documenting his communications with Steele,” the memo expresses. It then continues, recording that Steele expressed his “desperation” to stop Trump from winning the election in September 2016.

“This clear evidence of Steele’s bias was recorded by Ohr at the time and subsequently in official FBI files,” the memo states. It also adds that the Department of Justice and FBI did not include the bias behind Steele’s investigative manner “in any of the [Carter] Page FISA applications.”

“During this same time period, Ohr’s wife was employed by Fusion GPS to assist in the cultivation of opposition research on Trump,” the memo notes. “Ohr later provided the FBI with all of his wife’s opposition research, paid for by the DNC and Clinton campaign via Fusion GPS. The Ohrs’ relationship with Steele and Fusion GPS was inexplicably concealed from the FISC.”

The Democratic Party, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice continued seeking and obtained a court order, despite this clear bias. In addition to their application, they omitted the bias. This manipulated and mislead the court to grant approval for Obama’s Justice Department and the FBI to spy on an American citizen and monitor an opposing political campaign.

“Consistent with requirements under FISA, the application had to first be certified by the Director or Deputy Director of the FBI,” the memo explains. “It then required approval of the Attorney General, Deputy Attorney General (DAG), or the Senate-confirmed Assistant Attorney General for the National Security Division. The FBI and DOJ obtained one initial FISA warrant targeting Carter Page and three FISA renewals from the FISC. As required by statute (50 U.S.C. §1805 (d)(1)), a FISA order on an American citizen must be renewed by the FISC every 90 days and each renewal requires a separate finding of probable cause.”

“Then-Director James Comey signed three FISA applications in question on behalf of the FBI, and Deputy Director Andrew McCabe signed one,” the memo says. “Then-DAG Sally Yates, then acting DAG Dana Boente, and DAG Rod Rosenstein each signed one or more FISA applications on behalf of DOJ.”

This memo revealed that the entire Russia Investigation is nothing more than a political stunt established by the Democrats, desperately attempting to remove Trump from the White House. Not only have they engaged in highly unethical and scandalous behavior, but they have also wasted tax payer dollars to subsidize their McCarthyism. It is complete madness.
