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.

HOW TEAM OBAMA TRIED TO HACK THE ELECTION

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

 

NEW YORK POST

How Team Obama tried to hack the election

by Paul  Sperry   May 26, 2017

New revelations have surfaced that the Obama administration abused intelligence during the election by launching a massive domestic spy campaign that included snooping on Trump officials.

The irony is mind-boggling: Targeting political opposition is long a technique of police states like Russia, which Team Obama has loudly condemned for allegedly using its own intelligence agencies to hack into our election.

The revelations, as well as testimony this week from former Obama intel officials, show the extent to which the Obama administration politicized and weaponized intelligence against Americans.

Thanks to Circa News, we now know the National Security Agency under President Barack Obama routinely violated privacy protections while snooping through foreign intercepts involving US citizens — and failed to disclose the breaches, prompting the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court a month before the election to rebuke administration officials.

THE DUMBING DOWN OF U.S. INTELLIGENCE

Wednesday, May 13th, 2015

 

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
THE DUMBING DOWN OF U.S. INTELLIGENCE
L. GORDON CROVITZ

FBI Director James Comey warned last week that the American Islamists who tried to assassinate free-speech advocates at a cartoon exhibition near Dallas are not alone. There are “hundreds, maybe thousands” of potential terrorists in the U.S. being inspired by overseas groups. “The haystack is the entire country,” he said. “We are looking for the needles, but increasingly the needles are unavailable to us.”

The needles will be even harder to find if Congress weakens the Patriot Act by reducing the intelligence available to national security. With the rise of Islamic State and its global recruiting tools, intelligence agencies should be allowed to join the “big data” revolution.

Edward Snowden’s data theft raised privacy alarms, but by now it’s clear no one working for the National Security Agency leaked confidential data other than Snowden himself. He evaded the 300 lawyers and compliance officers who monitor how NSA staff use data.

President Obama last year recalled how the 9/11 hijackers escaped detection because laws prohibited the NSA from gathering and connecting the dots. He explained that the Patriot Act was passed to “address a gap identified after 9/11” by having intelligence agencies collect anonymous metadata—date, time and duration—of phone calls.

But Mr. Obama reversed himself and now wants to gut the program. Instead of the NSA gathering call information, phone companies would hold the data. With multiple, unconnected databases, the NSA would no longer be able to access data to mine. There wouldn’t be dots to connect to threats. As for privacy, the phone companies’ databases would be less secure than the NSA’s.

Lawmakers will decide this month whether to extend the Patriot Act or to water it down. Instead they should update it to maximize both privacy and intelligence. Technology now has the answer, if only politicians will get out of the way. (more…)

ANN COULTER – OBAMA AND THOSE UNSEALED COURT RECORDS

OBAMA’S SIGNATURE MOVE: UNSEALING PRIVATE RECORDS

August 1, 2012

Ann Coulter

Mitt Romney presents one enormous problem for Barack Obama’s campaign: No divorce records. That’s why the media are so hot to get their hands on Romney’s tax records for the past 25 years. They need something to “pick through, distort and lie about” — as the Republican candidate says.

Obama’s usual campaign method, used in 100 percent of his races, has been to pry into the private records of his opponents.

Democrats aren’t going to find any personal dirt on the clean-cut Mormon, so they need complicated tax filings going back decades in order to create the illusion of scandal out of boring financial records.

Romney has already released his 2010 tax return and is about to release his 2011 return. After all the huffing and puffing by the media demanding those returns, the follow-up story vanished remarkably quickly when the only thing the return showed was that Romney pays millions of dollars in taxes and gives a lot of money to charity.

Let’s take a romp down memory lane and review the typical Obama campaign strategy. Obama became a U.S. senator only by virtue of David Axelrod’s former employer, the Chicago Tribune, ripping open the sealed divorce records of Obama’s two principal opponents.

One month before the 2004 Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate, Obama was down in the polls, about to lose to Blair Hull, a multimillionaire securities trader. But then the Chicago Tribune leaked the claim that Hull’s second ex-wife, Brenda Sexton, had sought an order of protection against him during their 1998 divorce proceedings.

Those records were under seal, but as The New York Times noted: “The Tribune reporter who wrote the original piece later acknowledged in print that the Obama camp had ‘worked aggressively behind the scenes’ to push the story.” Many people said Axelrod had “an even more significant role — that he leaked the initial story.”

Both Hull and his ex-wife opposed releasing their sealed divorce records, but they finally relented in response to the media’s hysteria — 18 days before the primary. Hull was forced to spend four minutes of a debate detailing the abuse allegation in his divorce papers, explaining that his ex-wife “kicked me in the leg and I hit her shin to try to get her to not continue to kick me.”

After having held a substantial lead just a month before the primary, Hull’s campaign collapsed with the chatter about his divorce. Obama sailed to the front of the pack and won the primary. Hull finished third with 10 percent of the vote. (more…)

FACEBOOK PASSWORDS – COLLEGES AND EMPLOYERS DEMAND FACEBOOK PASSWORDS FROM APPLICANTS AND COLLEGE SPORTS TEAM MEMBERS

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

http://www.impactlab.net/2012/03/06/employers-and-colleges-demand-facebook-passwords-from-applicants/facebook-26/

Maryland Department of Corrections asks a candidate for his Facebook password.

EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:  A recent revision in the handbook at the University of North Carolina is typical:

“Each team must identify at least one coach or administrator who is responsible for having access to and regularly monitoring the content of team members’ social networking sites and postings,” it reads. “The athletics department also reserves the right to have other staff members monitor athletes’ posts.”

Do you think Facebook and Twitter account privacy settings guarantee future employers or schools can’t see your private posts? You need to think again.

Employers and colleges find the treasure-trove of personal information hiding behind password-protected accounts and privacy walls just too tempting, and some are demanding full access from job applicants and student athletes.

In Maryland, job seekers applying to the state’s Department of Corrections have been asked during interviews to log into their accounts and let an interviewer watch while the potential employee clicks through wall posts, friends, photos and anything else that might be found behind the privacy wall.

Previously, applicants were asked to surrender their user name and password, but a complaint from the ACLU stopped that practice last year. While submitting to a Facebook review is voluntary, virtually all applicants agree to it out of a desire to score well in the interview, according Maryland ACLU legislative director Melissa Coretz Goemann.

Student-athletes in colleges around the country also are finding out they can no longer maintain privacy in Facebook communications because schools are requiring them to “friend” a coach or compliance officer, giving that person access to their “friends-only” posts. Schools are also turning to social media monitoring companies with names like UDilligence and Varsity Monitor for software packages that automate the task. The programs offer a “reputation scoreboard” to coaches and send “threat level” warnings about individual athletes to compliance officers. (more…)

WHAT IS AGENDA 21 AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT?

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

UNITED NATIONS AGENDA 21    –   SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

The following information is condensed from a Special Report on Sustainable Development that was written by Tom DeWeese of the American Policy Center, located in Warrenton, Virginia.  For more detailed information, please contact ampolicycenter@hotmail.com or at their website www.americanpolicy.org where the full Special Report on Sustainable Development can be found.

WHAT IS AGENDA 21 AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT?

Sustainable Development can be traced back to a United Nations policy document called Agenda 21 which was adopted at the U.N.’s Earth Summit in Rio in 1992.    Sustainable Development calls for changing the very infrastructure of the nation, away from private ownership and control of property to nothing short of central planning of the entire economy.   In short, it’s all about wealth redistribution, all in the name of protecting the planet.

We have all heard the key terms it hides under – Cap N Trade, global warming, population control, gun control, open border and illegal immigration, higher taxes, higher gas prices, refusal to drill American oil, education restructuring, International ID’s, natural health supplement control, food control, farming “reform”, control of private property, Social Justice, land use, environmental protection, development diversity, open space, critical thinking  and last but not least,  sustainable development.  These are not random topics but a complete agenda of control that is part of the Sustainable Development/Agenda 21 blueprint.
