TRANSGENDERS IN THE MILITARY

Why Trump Is Right About Transgender Service Members By David Lampo

By David Lampo   David Lampo is author of A Fundamental Freedom: Why Republicans, Conservatives, and Libertarians Should Support Gay Rights.  He previously served on the boards of Log Cabin Republicans and Equality Virginia.
August 4, 2017

President Trump’s tweets are legendary, but few have aroused such fierce reaction as the one recently rescinding the “right” of transgender Americans to serve in the military. Not only have Democrats and leaders of the gay rights movement denounced this change; even some Republicans like Sen. John McCain have publicly expressed opposition, and pro-gay conservative organizations such as Log Cabin Republicans and American Unity Fund have also come out against it.  Unfortunately, the president’s opponents have trotted out the usual clichés, accusing him of “discrimination,” a pejorative term used to demonize those who question the current policy as bigots and shut down debate by attacking their motives and character rather than address the real issues.

In fact, there is not, and never has been, the “right” of any class of citizens to join the armed forces.  The military, in fact, “discriminates” against many classes of U.S. citizens.  It’s ageist, for example: The maximum age for Army enlisted recruits is 35, while the Navy and Marines top out at ages 34 and 28, respectively.  Those with serious medical conditions such as diabetes or obesity or who have physical limitations or impairments, those with any form of mental illness, those who aren’t U.S. citizens or have criminal records, to name just a few, are also prohibited from serving. Until recently, gay men and lesbians were banned, but that policy was rightly changed in 2010.

As with other groups of people excluded from service, there are a number of compelling reasons why the current policy of allowing transgender individuals to serve in the military should be reconsidered.  Despite the fact that there are transgender Americans currently serving, “gender dysphoria,” as it is labeled in the medical literature,

is still considered a mental illness in

every country in the world except

Denmark.

 Some of the most influential medical references in the world, including the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Diseases (ICD), continue to categorize gender dysphoria as a mental disorder.

CULTURE ROT – PERIOD FRIENDLY BOXERS HELP TRANSGENDER MEN LOOK AND FEEL GOOD

Friday, July 28th, 2017

 

This is another article I will post under CULTURE ROT on our website  !   Nancy

These period-friendly boxers help transgender  men  look good and feel good

Pads and pantyliners were designed to fit perfectly in feminine underwear. After all, women are the only people to get periods, right?

Wrong. Transgender men and masculine-presenting people menstruate, too. But traditional boxers aren’t designed to securely hold period products.

To solve this issue, a new company created an innovative and gender-affirming solution: menstruation-friendly boxers.

The company, called Pyramid Seven, hopes to include transgender men and gender-nonconforming people in the conversation around menstruation through its inclusive designs. The company’s comfortable and stylish boxer briefs were created with an extra panel to help support period products.

CULTURE ROT – PHOTOS – GAY PRIDE PARADE, SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, JULY 15, 2017

Friday, July 21st, 2017
While in San Diego  recently, I was able to  watch and photograph  a gay pride parade which is a yearly event in San Diego.  The old saying –  ” a photo is worth a thousand words”  applies here.  Surprising  and disturbing to me,  many of the churches, the army, navy, marines, air force, coast guard , the police, the sheriff’s office and the FBI were all  represented in the parade plus all the candidates for public office.  Additonally, there were many children in the parade that were being exposed to this lifestyle which I also   found very disturbing. 
These photos are being posted under the category “CULTURE ROT ” as I feel that our country’s traditional values are being undermined and homosexuality is  being  pushed to weaken us as a nation.    Nancy

24 REPUBLICANS VOTE FOR TAXPAYERS PAYING FOR TRANSGENDER SURGERIES IN THE MILITARY

Monday, July 17th, 2017
The following 2 articles deal with two common sense  issues that the House of Representatives has voted on during the past week.  The articles  deal with a  vote proposal for the Pentagon  to study Violent Strains of Islam which was voted down  and the other  article deals with the vote by 24 Republicans in the House  to preserve the  Obama administration’s policy for U.S. taxpayers to pay for transgender surgeries for  our military members.    
 If you feal strongly about how your representatives voted on these issues, please let your representatives know that you are paying attention to how they vote and that you are  unhappy with their vote.   We can be quiet no longer as our country is being changed right in front of our eyes.  If you keep your eyes closed to what is going on, one day you will wake up and wonder how all  this happened.  Heads up everyone !    Nancy   

 

24 Republicans Vote To Preserve Transgender Ideology in Military

Twenty-four Republicans banded together on Thursday to defeat an amendment which would have ended former President Barack Obama’s 2016 policy of funding “gender-reassignment” surgery for soldiers who want to live as members of the opposite sex.

The amendment to the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act was offered by Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R, Mo.). It would have prohibited the use of taxpayer dollars to pay for the non-military medical task of converting healthy soldiers into “transgender” soldiers who face lifelong dependence on hormones and surgery.

The July 13 vote saw Democrats vote in lockstep to defeat the amendment, despite the national unpopularity of the transgender ideology. They were joined by 24 Republicans who broke with their party to assist the Democrats to defeat the amendment, without any visible objections by the GOP’s business-focused leadership.

The offer of free medical care to gender-confused soldiers is part of the broader effort by Obama to have the Pentagon affirm and implement the transgender ideology, which says that people can have a “gender” different from their biological sex. The ideology also says that a person’s legal sex is defined by their self-assessed gender — not by their biology — and that other Americans must agree with people who say they are a member of the opposite sex.

Many Republicans praised the Hartzler amendment and criticized the Obama transgender policy. “It makes no sense to create soldiers who are unable to fight and win our nation’s wars,” Hartzler said during debate on the bill, according to the Associated Press.

“Figure out whether you’re man or a woman before you join,” Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter of California said. “U.S. taxpayers shouldn’t have to foot the bill.”

US ARMY: TRANSGENDER MEN IN WOMEN’S SHOWERS MUST GET ‘DIGNITY AND RESPECT”

Monday, July 10th, 2017

 

If you feel strongly about this issue, it is  time to write letters to the editor of your newspapers, post this article on your facebook page, share this article with your email lists, write to the White House, the Department of Defense or anyone else you can think of.   This is disrespectful of women and this madness has to be  stopped.  Nancy   

Transgender Men in Women’s Showers Must Get ‘Dignity and Respect,’ Says U.S. Army

by NEIL MUNRO7 Jul 2017
 

EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:  And if the military agrees to establish the transgender ideology at the end of the six-month delay, the pro-transgender campaign will be boosted in the nation’s courtrooms, capitols, and classrooms, said Ruse. “Every transgender activist can point to the military to say, ‘They’ve done, it, so we should do it… in grade schools, high schools, colleges, everywhere,” said Ruse.

Female soldiers must give “dignity and respect” to transsexual men who join them in their shared shower rooms, according to training manuals leaked by soldiers in a mandatory class.But this “dignity and respect” is a one-way street, according to the training slides, which were developed by officials working for former President Barack Obama. “Transgender Soldiers are not required or expected to modify or adjust their behavior based on the fact that they do not ‘match’ other Soldiers,” according to the slides, which were first leaked by TheFederalist.com:

http://media.breitbart.com/media/2017/07/Screen-Shot-2017-07-06-at-12.16.09-AM.png

The insistence that women remain mute when a man enters their shower room “shows a lack of respect for the vast majority of service members [because] no consideration is given to their feeling about this circumstances,” said Peter Sprigg, senior policy studies expert at the Family Research Council in Washington.

Female soldiers in showers are supposed to ignore visible biology and “act as if nothing has happened when some male … is all of a sudden in the shower room with them,” said Austen Ruse, president of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute. “This is a flat-out humiliation of women. … Females will have their dignity and respect violated [and] they are being told this does not matter even a little bit,” he added.

Female soldiers will not even be allowed to cover themselves because it could signal a lack of “respect” for the transsexual man in the shower, Ruse said.

Several nations have decided to accept transsexuals into their militaries, including Sweden, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. In 2014, a group of those transsexual soldiers held a joint press conference with the ACLU in Washinton D.C. See photo above.

PRO-TRUMP GAYS BANNED FROM GAY PRIDE PARADE

Friday, June 9th, 2017

 

So much for tolerance, diversity  and acceptance among the gay community !  Nancy 

Pro-Trump gays banned from pride parade

Todd Starnes

Those who preach tolerance and equality are normally the least tolerant and least equal of all.

That’s why I was not terribly surprised to learn that organizers of a gay pride parade in Charlotte, North Carolina, banned a group of pro-Trump gays.

Click here for a free subscription to Todd’s newsletter: a must-read for Conservatives!

“Gays for Trump” had submitted an application to display a float during this year’s Charlotte Pride parade.

“It was going to support Donald Trump,” group spokesman Derek Van Cleve told me. “It was going to be a patriotic float with American flags and a few ‘Make America Great Again’ flags.”

He also said the float would be populated with a number of drag queens – dressed as Uncle Sam and the Statue of Liberty.

“We wanted to have a couple of drag queens on the float dancing in ‘Make America Great Again’ dresses,” he said.

“All we wanted to do is let the community know the gay community does not speak for every single gay – just like the mayor of Pittsburgh does not speak for every single person in Pittsburgh,” Mr. Van Cleve said.

Nothing controversial, just patriotic.

“Not every single lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender citizen is anti-Trump,” he said. “Some of us love him and some of us support him – including myself.”

HOW THE MILITARY RATES OBAMA’S LEGACY

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

 

Please note that this article from the Military Times was written on January 8, 2017 at the very end of Obama’s term of office.  Nancy
HOW THE MILITARY RATES OBAMA’S LEGACY
By Leo Shane III and George R. Altman    January 8, 2017
President Barack Obama will step down after eight years as commander in chief with one of the most influential tenures leading the U.S. military, but not necessarily the political support of service members. 

His moves to slim down the armed forces, move away from traditional military might and overhaul social policies prohibiting the service of minority groups have proven divisive in the ranks. His critics have accused him of trading a strong security posture for political points, and for allowing the rise of terrorists like the Islamic State group whom the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were supposed to silence.

But Obama’s supporters define him as the Nobel Peace Prize winner who ordered the elimination of Osama bin Laden and refocused military strategy while wrestling with an uncooperative Congress and unprecedented budget restrictions. They insist the military is more nimble now, and more prepared to deal with unconventional warfare against non-traditional threats across the globe.

More than half of troops surveyed in the latest Military Times/Institute for Veterans and Military Families poll said they have an unfavorable opinion of Obama and his two-terms leading the military. About 36 percent said they approve of his job as commander in chief. 

Their complaints include the president’s decision to decrease military personnel (71 percent think it should be higher), his moves to withdraw combat troops from Iraq (59 percent say it made America less safe) and his lack of focus on the biggest dangers facing America (64 percent say China represents a significant threat to the U.S.)

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON – REGIME CHANGE BY ANY OTHER NAME?

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

 NATIONAL REVIEW

REGIME CHANGE BY ANY OTHER NAME?
by VICTOR DAVIS HANSON   — NRO contributor Victor Davis Hanson is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and the author of The Second World Wars: How the First Global Conflict Was Fought and Won, to appear in October from Basic Books

May 22, 2017 

EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:   We are now watching insidious regime change, aimed at removing the president of the United States not because of what he has done so far, but because of his personality and what he might do to the Obama agenda — and because for a variety of cultural reasons, our elite simply despises his very being.

Truth or consequences? Obama skated for far worse misdeeds. Election machines in three states were not hacked to give Donald Trump the election. There was never a serious post-election movement of electors to defy their constitutional duties and vote for Hillary Clinton. Nor, once Trump was elected, did transgendered people begin killing themselves in alarming numbers. Nor were there mass resignations at the State Department upon his inauguration.

 

Nor did Donald Trump seek an order to “ban all Muslims” from entering the U.S. Instead, he temporarily sought a suspension in visas for everyone, regardless of religion, from seven Middle Eastern states that the Obama administration had earlier identified as incapable of properly vetting travelers to the U.S. The first lady did not work for an elite escort or prostitute service. She never said that she and young Barron Trump would not be moving to the White House. Barron does not have autism. Trump’s father never ran racist ads as a supposed candidate in a purported political campaign. Kellyanne Conway denies that in a private conversation between segments on MSNBC, she privately remarked to hosts that she had to take a shower after working for Trump. Donald Trump never suggested to the Mexican president that the U.S. was going to invade Mexico. Nor did Trump plan to mobilize the National Guard to send back illegal aliens. He did not remove a Martin Luther King bust from the White House. There was no evidence that he ever promised to ease Russian sanctions (much less that he promised the Russians he would be “flexible” after he was elected). He did not short the FBI of resources to conduct an investigation into supposed Russian collusion. He did not go to Moscow and watch prostitutes in his bed urinate where Barack Obama had previously slept. His deputy attorney general did not threaten to resign over the Comey firing.

GENDER OBSESSED WEST SETS ITSELF UP FOR THE RISE OF ISLAM

Saturday, May 20th, 2017

 

The Gender Obsessed West Sets Itself Up for the Rise of Islam

www.gatestoneinstitute.org/10347/gender-culture-decline

EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE: There is a saying that civilizations can be destroyed from within, rather than by armies from without. If the West will not commit itself to preserving Western societies and values, it will fall. And its extraordinary progress will be blanketed over by darkness, along with all those gender rights.

According to Camille Paglia, “a purely secular culture risks hollowness and, paradoxically, sets itself up for the rise of fundamentalist movements that ominously promise to purify and discipline”. Such as — name it — radical Islam.

 

  • French authorities imposed on students ridiculous books such as Daddy Wears a Dress. It would have been comical if the following years would not have been so tragic. What, in fact, wrecked these French illusions was Islamic terrorism.
  • The only enemy these French élites knew were patriarchal privileges, since for them “domination” comes only from the white male Europeans.
  • Obsession with gender is a convenient distraction to avoid facing matters that are more difficult and less pleasant. If the West will not commit itself to preserving Western societies and values, it will fall. And its extraordinary progress will be blanketed over by darkness, along with all those gender rights.

Welcome to the progressive “next frontier of ‘liberation'”, where the most urgent question in Western democracies is “genderism”.

North Carolina was subjected to a year of being boycotted, until it withdrew its transgender bathroom law. Last month, the National Union of Teachers in Great Britain asked the government to teach children as young as two new transgender theories. New York recently presented the first “trans-doll“. American universities are wracked with hysteria over the correct use of neutral pronouns. Even National Geographic, instead of writing about lions and elephants, started covering the “Gender Revolution”. One of the first announcements of Emmanuel Macron, as the French President-elect, was that he would appoint officials from a “gender equal” list.

THE NEW DEM CIVIL WAR: RACE VS CLASS

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

 

RACE VS CLASS: THE NEW DEM CIVIL WAR

Fight white men or Wall Street?

MAY 2, 2017

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam.

EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE: 

The old left insists that social differences will fade away under Socialism. The intersectional left believes that without social deconstruction, Socialism will just mean white supremacy and hetero-cis power.

The old left believes that the true enemies are the billionaires and that working class white men must be enlisted to fight them. The intersectional left will take money from billionaires to fight working class white men who are the real enemy.  That is the Bernie and Obama split in a nutshell.  Obama will take money from Wall Street to fight white men. Bernie wants white men to fight Wall Street.   Both factions of the left are utterly deranged. Their ideologies are built on hatred and can only cause misery. And they are now fighting each other for control of the left, the Dems and the country.

 

The Democrats have ended their unity tour more divided than ever. Unlike Republican quarrels, their war is mostly ignored by the media. And yet it will define what the left and its plan to take over the country will look like.

When Hillary lost, she didn’t just lose the White House. She also lost the DNC. Her loyalists, already discredited for their brazen tampering to disenfranchise Sanders supporters, had to make way for Obama’s people. The Clinton legacy is over. The Dems belong to Obama now.

Or do they?

When Obama inherited the DNC from the Clintons, he also inherited their bitter enemy.
