With ‘Democrat’ Mattis Gone, Trump Will Promptly Implement Transgender Military ‘Ban’

The impediment to banning transgenders from the military was ‘Democrat’ Mad Dog Mattis, who foamed at the mouth for equality

President Donald Trump has resurrected an idea pitched early in his presidency. He is planning to remove individuals from the military who do not want to be recognized by their birth gender, a move that was previously obstructed by former Defense Secretary James Mattis, within the next 30 days.

Deputy Defense Secretary David Norquist signed a memo on Tuesday that formalized the measure after a Supreme Court ruling on Jan. 22 rendered leftist objections to policy change null and void.

Under the new directive, individuals must serve in the military under their birth gender, and individuals would be banned from transitioning to their preferred gender while serving.

While Trump opponents want the public to think that all transgender people are banned from service, that’s not true. Individuals wanting to serve just have to adhere to the new policy.

Up to 13,000 transgender troops could be discharged from military service if they do not wish to serve as their genitalia warrants, according to estimates from pro-LGBT publication The Advocate.

The advocates for equality are already voicing their objections to this news, as they seem to believe their emotions supersede what is best for US national security.

“The military is the largest employer in the nation and, as the USTS found, transgender people are twice as likely to have served in the Armed Forces as the general population,” said Gillian Branstetter, who works as media relations manager at the National Center for Transgender Equality.

“The President’s revival of his bigoted, disgusting ban on transgender service members is a stunning attack on the patriots who keep us safe and on the most fundamental ideals of our nation,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said in a press release. His “years-long insistence on his cowardly ban makes clear that prejudice, not patriotism, guides his decisions. If implemented, this hateful policy would undermine our military readiness and betray our core American values.”

However, the whining isn’t likely to change much now that former Defense Secretary James Mattis, who Trump described as a ‘Democrat,’ is out of the Trump administration. He was previously the biggest cheerleader for transgenders to remain in the military, as the ‘Mad Dog’ frequently yipped about Trump’s proposed ban.

Politico explains how Mattis abused his authority to stand in the way of the Commander-in-Chief’s order:

When Trump tweeted his order that the military ban transgender personnel, Mattis tried to walk it back but ultimately failed. After the White House followed up the tweet with formal guidance, Mattis ordered a six-month policy review headed by his top deputy and generals from each of the military branches.

While the reviews were underway, the existing Obama-era policies that allowed troops to be open about their transgender status — and in some cases receive government-funded sex-reassignment surgeries — remained in place.

But the review ended with Mattis largely acquiescing to Trump, recommending in a memo to the president that “persons with a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria” be “disqualified from military service except under limited circumstances.”

Trump followed through in March by formally ordering a ban based on Mattis’ recommendation — although that policy is now being contested in several court cases.

While Trump’s move may offend legislative pantywaists like ‘Never Trump’ Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), it will ultimately make the country safer. Transgender individuals are known to be predisposed to mental illness, and their medical needs can be very costly to taxpayers. Putting ‘America First’ means prioritizing the importance of national security over the feelings of individuals pushing a dangerous social movement. Trump is fulfilling his mandate with this transgender military policy.

President Trump Rules Out Deploying Troops to Restore Order, Even as Riots Show No Signs of Slowing Down

Trump has opted to not show strength in the face of this crisis.

Published

Just one day after President Donald Trump said he was willing to send military forces into states across the country to put down riots, he is reportedly backing off of the idea.

According to administration officials, Trump is happy with the result of yesterday’s enforcement measures during the riots – which included law enforcement officials being shot and police getting hit by SUVs. He will not be using the Insurrection Act to put troops on the streets to restore order anytime soon.

“The law is absolutely still on the table if things get really bad, but as of now he doesn’t think it’s going to have to go that far,” an administration official said to Axios.

“As President Trump has said, we cannot allow the voices of peaceful protesters to be drowned out by angry mobs, which is why the President will continue to take lawful, decisive action to stop the violence and restore the security of all Americans,” White House spokesman Judd Deere said.

Trump made the pivot after RINO Republicans whined about his harsh rhetoric as the country burns due to extreme left-wing riots.

“I don’t think the Pentagon’s keen on getting brought into this unless they absolutely have to. We need to restore order, but using active duty military troops in circumstances like this is a fairly rare occurrence,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said on Tuesday.

“I would prefer that these things be handled by the state and local authorities,” Sen. John Thune (R-SD) said. “You want to de-escalate, rather than escalate.”

Yesterday, Trump declared that he would show zero tolerance for any more rioting and looting in the streets:

President Donald Trump announced tonight that he will deploy military force in cities that are gripped by riots if blue-state governors do not get their acts in order and do so soon.

“My first and highest duty as president is to defend our great country and the American people,” Trump said in his speech. “I swore an oath to uphold the laws of our nation and that is exactly what I will do.”

Trump made it clear that he is an “ally of all peaceful protesters” who are protesting about injustices committed against George Floyd, who died during a police encounter with former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin. However, Trump will not allow the rioters to disgrace Floyd’s memory with their looting and wanton property destruction.

Trump announced that he would deploy “thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel and law enforcement officers” in order to restore order in American cities. These forces could be deployed as soon as tonight considering how blue-state governors have done so poorly at keeping their states safe.

Earlier in the day, Trump had criticized governors throughout the country for their “weak” response to the growing violence.

President Trump has backed off at least temporarily from his boasts, showing yet again that his bark is much worse than his bite.
