Donald Trump Announces Ban on Transgender Servicemembers in U.S. Military

111

President Donald Trump announced Wednesday that transgenders would not be allowed to serve in America’s military forces.

He made the announcement on Twitter.

And he went on in a separate tweet: “…victor and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that trangender in the military would entail. Thank you.”

Earlier this year, Trump had been fielding guidance from his top military officials about the notion of training transgender troops. Defense Secretary James Mattis, nonetheless, allowed them to serve.

Trump’s tweets are quite a different message from the one handed down by Mattis.

Breitbart has more:

The decision also comes after Mattis issued multiple memos indicating that decisions should be based on whether it makes the military more lethal. One memo put an end to all training that was not related to military readiness and blasted Pentagon officials for wasting as much as $28 million on Afghan camouflage uniforms that don’t actually blend in with Afghan terrain.

    President Trump is correct on this. Obama included transgenders in the military for the same reason he cut military funds and left pilots scrambling for spare parts in junk yards to keep their planes flying. His goal was to cause dissension and weaken military strength. The military has one purpose and must not be distracted, divided or used for social experiments.

    • Patriotic American

      Also to further define deviancy down and further erode individual rights, let’s not forget about that. I have no doubt in my mind that Obama had Terry Bean of the so-called “Human Rights Campaign” (which should be called Inhuman Lefts Campaign) to the White House in the hundreds of times as he had with Al Sharpton for “civil rights” issues, with the “leadership” of La Raza for immigration issues – and, going without saying, every Muslim Brotherhood lackey and front group including but not limited to HAMAS CAIR. Obama served every bit as much a battering ram for LGBT supremacists (whom I seek to differentiate from individuals) as he had for Muslim supremacists. Capitulation to and appeasement of one group begets the same with another.

      • Patriotic American

        P.S. As in Minnesota which had so much invested in the “success” of the Somali Muslim police officer who shot and killed an unarmed white Australian woman, and which is teeming with Somali Muslims: There is now word in that state that schools will be asking kindergartners for their “preferred pronoun.” As much a sign of supremacism as Muslim students’ demands for prayer rooms, if you ask me . . .

        correct

      • Patriotic American

        It also makes the society more sleazy, more depraved, and more debased.

        • Rob Porter

          I agree. So sad to see. No matter how hard Donald Trump tries, part of the element that made America great was the spiritual factor and I say that despite not being what many would consider demonstrably religious. Faults and all, and there never is perfection in any one nation, America’s foundation in Judeo-Christian beliefs and principles made it different and special. When considering this matter I often think of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s fantastic 1978 Harvard Commencement Address that infuriated so many academics who think they are ‘intellectuals’ rather than being what they really are, just mediocre lecturers and ‘as thick as an Australian brick’. Solzhenitsyn spoke of the need for the spiritual element and now we see it horribly lacking. I recommend reading that speech. It’s easily found on Google. I’ve read it on two or three occasions and read parts of it numbers of times.

          America needs to recover that element or the liberal/left will ensure that it sinks into the mire. They are empty, evil and rotten to the core, their conduct often that of traitors.

  • Rob Porter

    Now await the scream of wrath – and note the utter silence thus far on here to Donald Trump’s announcement. When the matter of transgenderism arose in Canadian schools, I, ignorant of this matter, took the trouble to research it and among other studies found the report from John Hopkins University Hospital, that, I discovered, has been dealing with transgenderism for 40 or more years. It even performed reassignment surgery, and then finally came to realize that transgenderism is “a mental disorder”. “… those who think they are transgender are actually suffering from a life-destroying mental disorder,” the report states.

    “These policy makers and the media are doing no favors either to the public or the transgendered by treating their confusions as a right in need of defending rather than as a mental disorder that deserves understanding, treatment and prevention.”

    • Patriotic American

      Your points remind me: It is not supposed to be the job or business of a government to promote, glorify, encourage, endorse, sanction or facilitate the spread of aberrant behaviors that do not produce life or otherwise benefit a society. Such a promotion is a sign (as is the whole business of mass Muslim migration being put through all over most of Europe) of a society that has lost its will to survive, has no concern about its long-term survival, and is on a slow and steady track to total cultural, demographic and national suicide. By treating such behaviors as a “right,” that is exactly what our political elites are doing: Promoting, glorifying, endorsing, etc.

      Besides being a mental disorder, transgenderism is also part and parcel of a malignant ideology that seeks to erase any and all differences between male and female that are very real. It is a bid to conceal, hide, deny, stonewall, obscure, cover up, obstruct, and put one over on both nature and on society.

      As for “Mad Dog” Mattis, that he would have signed off on this is just a prime example of how embedded with the One World “deep state” that is part and parcel of the plot to bring down Trump by coup, he is.

  • RCCA

    I think individual people have to be judged based on their own merit and ability to contribute. Some transgenders are mentally sound, some are not. They represent such a small segment of humanity, just a fraction of a minority. What’s the fuss all about? I just read an article written in 2015 about a trans-female army doctor. Being trans didn’t diminish her capacity as a doctor or weaken the effectiveness of the military.

    On the other hand there is no health insurance coverage for gender treatment and when the military was opened up to transgenders I’m guessing too many people saw entering the military as a way to pay for their gender reassignment surgery, etc. Trump had to put a stop to that.

    I suspect that there will be some modification of the policy to allow for trans people who have already served for a decade or more, if they have valuable skills.

    • lostlegends

      They are not “mentally sound.” You pulling my leg?

      • RCCA

        I’ve met some transgenders who are messed up psychologically and some who are highly successful and happy in their careers and family life. So I don’t assume that all transgenders by definition have a mental illness. I guess you do. I was not pulling your leg.
        Sexual reassignment is a choice I admit I don’t fully support. I’ve had quite a few arguments on the topic (with transgenders) in that I believe in accepting yourself fully in the healthy body you were given, but then it’s not for me to decide what is best or right for other people. I think this is a medical issue, not a political one.

        • Rob Porter

          I’d like you to Google and read the John Hopkins University Hospital findings on transgenderism after 40 years of dealing with this ‘condition’. The hospital finally discovered that it is a mental disorder, which would explain why suicides among those who have undergone ‘reassignment’ surgery is 22 times higher then in any other group.

          • RCCA
          • Rob Porter

            John Hopkins reinstated it ‘reassignment’ surgery only after coming under pressure from Barack Obama. If it has “reinstituted” its programme you can bet that this stems from the fact that America has degenerated so far into a spineless, politically correct and mindlessly stupid society that now even the findings of medical science are trumped by insane decisions that have no scientific basis. It actually takes courage to act upon truth rather than rubbish because the latter has p.c. appeal.

          • RCCA

            So you were wrong, iow, but don’t have the character to admit it. There was one psychiatrist who cancelled their program 40 years ago, it wasn’t the entire hospital’s decision based on their findings of 40 years as you claimed. The field of gender identity, like everything else in medicine and science, has changed in the last 40 years ago. A lot.

            Medical science is not a monolith, in case you are ignorant of how inexact medicine and the “art of medicine” actually are. Medicine as a field is constantly being evaluated and updated. A decision made 40 years ago by one man is not the final “truth” as you call it.

            Trump’s decision was deliberately very limited to transgenders being admitted into the military, nothing else, and was politically motivated to satisfy some Republican politicians who don’t want the military to pay for sex reassignment surgery. It was not based on any scientific evaluation of transgenders or intended to indicate whether transgenders are worthy human beings or crazy, and I don’t think he intends to wade into that discussion, ever. Of course knee jerk liberals are hysterical because they think this changes anything, but surprisingly people like yourself are also. Where is your compassion? Nonexistent?

            One thing on which we can agree, Obama wanted to use the military to advance social policy. Not good for the military or social policy.

          • Rob Porter

            Evident is that you are both a liar and deceiver who thinks that with bluster and lies they can mislead readers on this website. I now encourage everyone to go read now retired Dr McHugh’s report on transgenderism and findings of other doctors and institutions. You think that with lying bluster reminiscent of Muslim taqiyya you can mislead readers. This is the reality, “Dr. Paul R. McHugh, former
            psychiatrist-in-chief for the hospital who has written more than 125
            peer-reviewed medical journal articles and has published six scholarly books, reaffirms that
            changing the sex of a human is
            not possible. He didn’t write what you are claiming he did “40 years ago”! – and he is not alone in his finding. The fact is that among those who have had reassignment surgery, the suicide rate is 22 higher than with any other group. That should suggest to you that those who believe they are not the gender their physiological equipment tell them they are, have a problem.

            Further, the

            American College of
            Pediatricians not long ago released an in-depth report stating that the move to indoctrinate
            children with the idea that they can pick their gender amounts to child abuse.

            Further, you don’t know that Trump’s decision “was not based on any scientific evaluation of transgenders or intended
            to indicate whether transgenders are worthy human beings or crazy”. You just make up this stuff as you go along to discredit anyone whose views conflict with your own – and in the process display the hostility that I’ve come to realize is a serious problem among LGBTQ individuals. Over the years I never bothered much with this sort of discussion, never was rude or hostile toward anyone obviously homosexual and ‘confused’, in fact have been tolerant and patient, but I’ve experienced rudeness toward me when one of these individuals who was designed to be a man did not like me being a man rather then a moffie, so now my tolerance toward them has taken a decided downturn. I’ve seen and read about their vicious intolerance when trying to destroy the lives of those who don’t share their views.

            So. ignorant so-and-so who chooses to write off anything or anyone whose views differ from their own as “ignorant’, the ignorance is yours.

            Further, it was not only “one man” who made this decision after many years of experience with transgenderism. You have just ‘made up’ the rubbish you wish to believe and would have others believe. And what the devil has “compassion” got to do with discussion of this matter? John Hopkins Hospital was not lacking in compassion when saying “These policy makers and the media are doing no favors either to the public or
            the transgendered by treating their confusions as a right in need of
            defending rather than as a mental disorder that deserves understanding,
            treatment and prevention.”

          • Patriotic American

            I can add to your points: Even LGBT-friendly, “tolerant” (and now increasingly Muslim-dominated) Sweden has found that those who’ve “transitioned” from one sex to the other ended up committing suicide 40% or so more of the time from those who didn’t go through with such nonsense.

            As to your “lying bluster reminiscent of Muslim taqqiya” comment: It figures, given how quite a few in that community support the Islamist jihad agenda, despite Islam’s atrocious track record in that regard.

          • Rob Porter

            You are doing an excellent job or infuriating those on the transgender side, but the facts are the facts. The abnormal suicide rate tells us that ‘something is wrong’, but not to those who reject reality and medical science.

          • Patriotic American

            The only time they worship at the altar of science is if it affirms their “global warming” a.k.a. “climate change” ideology.

            Keep it up, gentlemen, nothing is more interesting or entertaining than seeing the leftists of all bents throwing a hissy. They will deny or evade the truth, but you both are giving it a good shot to educate them. Remember, leftists are never wrong, they are at the apex of humankind, good luck.

          • Rob Porter

            Thanks, as I said initially, this was once something that didn’t hold my interest, but then I noticed all the nastiness from the LGBTQ mob, the imposing of their views – not least in schools – and the sudden preoccupation with transgenderism concerning which I knew zero, so I spent few hours researching the stuff and got an awakening. They don’t want the truth and thus a dose of reality, so I get in the mood to give them a dose of it.

          • Ziggy46

            I was of the same mind until reading your post. The LGBTQ mob’s, well said, imposing their views is everywhere. The politicos, educators etc. continue to promulgate the LGBTQ diktat down societies throat. Most worrying, maddening is that their agenda is directed at young school children who have no need for this adverse some may say perverse input. Years ago our son, a student, was exposed to the Gay agenda. I told him to be polite and to excuse himself from class. Now, his children, our young grandchildren, are getting a full dose of this LGBTQ agenda; it is promoted by the government(s) and needless to say, the Education Overlords.

            Thanks again, Rob, keep on dosing it out. You did terrific research and ruffled the feathers of those in need of some knowledge on the facts. Leftists abhor facts, not that you are not aware of this fact, too.

          • Rob Porter

            Widowed many years, through another tragedy I now have two young grandchildren, 8 & 9 in my custody, so from the school and school board – that is driving this stuff – I’ve been getting a dose of this LGBTQ stuff. Both the school board and the school now have a ‘good understanding’ of my point of view – to which I’ve given them a dose! I marvel at their ignorance and selective ignorance, ‘selective’ because they know that if they didn’t just go along with the trash being dished out to kids – in fact ‘child abuse’ – they’d lose their job. They talk about their “honesty” and “caring” for the children and in no uncertain manner I tell them they’re promoting a lie, in fact are not honest and definitely not caring or they’d inform children about the dangers involved in these lifestyles. These are just very dishonest and characterless people.

          • Ziggy46

            I am so sorry for your losses and the tragedy, Rob. You are undoubtedly an amazing human being. I am sure, too, your two grandchildren offer you much hope and love in return. My God, you have a weighty task; your devotion to your grandchildren is beyond admirable. I am sincere with my words of awe. It has been a while since I have done battle with educators. Today, it is much different, inane and insane, than when our son was up against this leftist-progressive contagion.

            Take care, you are one heck of a man, grandfather.

            I went off on a tangent… your posts are terrific, beyond well stated and researched.

          • Rob Porter

            Thanks very much for your compliments and sympathy, Ziggy, but through everything I’ve learnt two things in particular, “Never give in and never lose your humour’. The reality is that other than my son I don’t have family in Canada who would look after the children, and I cannot in this now thoroughly screwed up society, see them land up in some lunatic foster home. The parents of the Canadian father who died, aged 34, don’t take any interest in these grandchildren. Very strange, but thank God I never gave a second thought to taking them in. I’m not even the mushy type, but have a keen sense of duty and particularly in the case of the granddaughter, Katie, who has lived with me more than half her life, it’s like having second round. She prospered and is very attached to her ‘Papa’, so not a huge burden.

          • Ziggy46

            Hi, Rob, “Never give in and never lose your humour’. I have always given our son and grandchildren the same advice. Thankfully, the girls have taken note. Our son is not humourless but has a difficult time maintaining this philosophy. My God, how anyone could turn their backs on their grandchildren is beyond my comprehension.

            I agree regarding our society, the so-called Children’s Aid or such agencies are hopeless in my opinion. We took kids in years ago, not under any agency, because we were aware kids were just a number and Foster homes were, in most cases, simply income. I am a wee cynical. Actually, perhaps too cynical or jaded.

            Thank God, there are folks, grandparents like you, Rob, with a sense of not only duty but love.
            I am not sentimental, either; however, there are times when a get a lump in the old throat. I know the girls do well, Katie being attached to her Papa have a solid future. Frankly, I’m glad I am old. I don’t think I would make it as a child in this lunatic society besieged by the loony leftists. Just take care, all the best to you and the girls. My better half needs me, for what I don’t want to know. Take care, I know you will stay strong.

            Those school boards are the same ones who would happily subject the schoolchildren to being indoctrinated into the Shehada – the five pillars of Islam.

          • Rob Porter

            The local one has already had an earful from me, the school my grandchildren attend also and there is now a sort of wariness of me. After a few weeks ago they herded the kids into the school hall to sing ‘the Ramadan song’, they had such an earful from me that I think they’ll tread warily in regard to indoctrinating my grandchildren. Katie, the 9 year-old stuck her fingers in her ears, so the music teacher turned up the volume. This teacher responded to my letter to the principle with a call, but didn’t get any satisfaction. She talked utter drivel about children learning to accept other cultures, so I told her that Islam is a culture of which I have no interest in my grandchildren being tolerant, it being an ideology filled with hatred, bigotry and intolerance. I recommended that she real the Qur’an. If she expected an apology for the blunt comments in my letter she must have been sadly disappointed. A lot of these teachers – who regard themselves enormously clever and important – truly are very ‘dense’.

          • RCCA

            Obnoxious comment, to say the least. I certainly am not part of the transgender community, I have already stated my initial opposition to the process, and I have been anti-jihad and anti-sharia for many years, as anyone who reads this blog would know. I’m not interested in taking a political side about a medical issue that’s all. See the following concerning the claims about suicide which are not true: http://transadvocate.com/fact-check-study-shows-transition-makes-trans-people-suicidal_n_15483.htm

          • RCCA

            I didn’t say anything about “changing the sex” of anyone, we’re talking about outward appearances. BTW, because of your badgering I looked further into the claims you made and found this which is an interview with the person responsible for the Swedish study which has been misrepresented by McHugh and others. http://transadvocate.com/fact-check-study-shows-transition-makes-trans-people-suicidal_n_15483.htm

          • Rob Porter

            McHugh did not “misrepresent” anyone’s studies. He and his colleagues over a period of years did their own studies. You are obfuscating again. Consider this, McHugh has written

            more than 125 peer-reviewed medical journal articles and has
            published six scholarly books. The Swedes, now a perfectly useless people who invite in Muslim migrants who rape and murder, probably misrepresented McHugh’s work.

        • Shirley Rosenhohn

          I fully agree with you.

          • Rob Porter

            That’s because you are similarly clueless and choose to wallow in ignorance. Go spend the hours I did researching this matter instead of believing lies and nonsense.

          • CreoleGumbo

            Rob I suspect that many of these sympathizers have had no personal experience in dealing with people affected by gender dysphoria. I have seen many of them over the past 35 years of being a doctor and have yet to come across even one who is psychologically stable. These people are very sick.

            When I was a medical student a hypothetical question was posed to us: A person comes into your office requesting that you amputate his right hand because his right hand keeps stealing things and if it were removed he would be the honest person that he truly is. Would you do the surgery? How is this scenario any different from a man who tells you that his life would be happier if you just amputated his penis because doing so would bring out his true self?

          • Rob Porter

            Thanks very much for your informative and thought provoking comment – and at the end giving me a good chuckle! Indeed, when deciding to research the matter of transgenderism I did so from a point of thorough ignorance and in order to become informed because I was heartily sick of what at school was being foisted on my very young grandchildren. Through that research I learned that those afflicted are very sick and badly in need help, not pandering to their delusion and disorder, and in the process turning society on its head. For what is occurring the chickens are going to come to roost.

          • CreoleGumbo

            You are quite welcome.

          • RCCA

            Some people really get bent out of shape over the topic. No pun intended.

        • CreoleGumbo

          What about Black people who think they are White who then undergo plastic surgery to change their features and use bleaching creams to whiten their skin? Are they delusional or not?

          • RCCA

            I don’t think it’s a question of being delusional. It’s probably some kind of vanity or belief that they would look better with those procedures. I’ve never met anyone who has done that so I don’t really know. I can only share my suspicions that there is some insecurity in those people which makes them feel they need to drastically alter their appearance.

            Yesterday I looked at some websites of plastic surgeons — and found that people changing their appearance has become much more common, even among men. Would you call all those people “delusional” for wanting to change their appearance? Probably not. The question is, why not use the medical skills to help people who have “gender dysphoria?”

            See: https://www.plasticsurgery.org/cosmetic-procedures/men-and-plastic-surgery/procedures See: https://www.plasticsurgery.org/video-gallery/asps-reveals-first-ever-gender-confirmation-surgery-stats
            FYI: “For the first time, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) is reporting on the number of gender confirmation surgeries in the United States. ASPS—the world’s largest plastic surgery organization—found that more than 3,200 transfeminine and transmasculine surgeries were performed in 2016.”

          • CreoleGumbo

            Questions:
            1. How do you know that someone who is Black and thinks they are White and then seeks to alter their appearance (such as Michael Jackson) is just unhappy versus delusional, which means that they do not accept reality?
            2. Are you saying that a man who does not like his penis and wants it removed is just someone who is unhappy with the way he looks as opposed to not facing the reality that he is a he?
            3. What about someone who is unhappy with his left arm and feels that his life would be much happier if it were just not there? How is that different from the man who does not like his penis and wants its removed?

            Answer to your question is “YES THEY ARE DELUSIONAL.” They are mentally ill and just because SOME doctors are unethical, while many are not and refuse to do such procedures, that does not make it right for the ones who do.

          • RCCA

            To me your comment sounds like you believe you are the ultimate judge of everyone and you are convinced you know what is best for everyone else. Sounds like you might be having a problem with being delusional. I think that’s called having a God complex.

            As I said, I don’t know everyone in the world, or what they do, or why they choose to do what they do. It’s not for me to decide what is best for them or judge what they should or should not do. What might be correct for one person might be completely wrong for another. Yes, I have opinions and preferences of what I like but I try to remain open intellectually and tolerant.

            Yes, there are some doctors who are unethical and stories abound of plastic surgery junkies like Michael Jackson who are addicts and mess up their faces, but I doubt you would easily find any doctor who would remove an arm or a penis just because someone asked them to.

      Obama and his ilk have worked to rearrange all social norms for everybody to exclusively suit this minute minority the same way Muslim supremacists have agitated to have all Western customs, values and norms replaced with Sharia.

      As for “transgenders” – the whole business of transgenderizing an increasing swath of the populace is a sick extension of, and next step from, the whole business of drumming any and all incipient signs of budding manhood and masculinity out of young boys that has been in place since the 1960’s when schools, kindergartens and social services began to be taken over by the radical feminist, socialist Left. (And who’s been the target of this type of radical social experimentation? Women. Now again, which of the two parties truly is engaging in a “war on women”?)

      • RCCA

        I think you are way off suggesting that Muslim supremacists are the same as people who want more, not less, freedom and social acceptance. I don’t think the social and sexual norms of the vast majority of men and women have been affected in the least bit by the ability of LGBT people to live honestly and openly. At least I haven’t see any change in my lifetime. When I look at Trump rallies these days or sports events or action films or action games or muscle cars, etc., I don’t see any lack of masculinity or masculine men, so I really don’t know why you are so fearful of men disappearing.

        LGBT acceptance is about having a recognition that people being different is not the same as being wrong or bad and that the human species is little more complex than what we were fed by Hollywood and TV. History is full of stories of people who made major contributions and were different.

        We can be kind to people who are different, we don’t have to freak out and burn them in cages, they don’t have to stay hidden and afraid.

        I just saw Sarah Huckabee conducting a press conference and nobody bats an eye that she doesn’t conform to a traditional or typical standards of femininity of being glamorous or sexy or soft or demure. She’s very stern and powerful. And she’s representing a Republican president. So this is not a partisan issue.

        • Patriotic American

          I have studied the political LGBT movement, especially within the Obama era, and their tacticology – and smears, defamations, libels, demonizations and vilifications of anyone who doesn’t bow down to their demands – sounds an awful lot like what HAMAS CAIR and the other Islamist alphabet-soup groups have been doing. And they’ve been trampling on Christians, Catholics, Jews, women, children and free speech in pursuit of their goals – just as Islamists have. The whole political LGBT agenda has, from top to bottom, always been a zero-sum proposition.

          • RCCA

            You are forgetting that there are gays who are conservative and gays who are Republicans. They matter too. BTW, what does the word “tacticology” mean? The difference between LGBT political tactics and aims and Hamas’s tactics and aims should be obvious to anyone who reads this blog. You sound like the people who compare Christian fundamentalists to ISIS.

          • Patriotic American

            And look what happened to them – Mark Foley, Ted Haggard, Larry Craig, Milo Yiannopoulos. All were destroyed by the radical Left because they could not stand any gay who did not march in blind lockstep with the degenerated agenda the political LGBT’s push. (Although Craig was not exactly a true-blue conservative, more a Chamber of Commerce RINO, given his support for open borders and amnesty for illegals. But that’s splitting hairs, I know.) The Left justified their scorched-earth tactics by saying that Foley and Craig had an ‘R’ next to their name, and Haggard was a man of the cloth – while seeking to absolve Barney Frank of his various unsavory connections because he was a lockstep leftist with a ‘D’ next to his name.

            I also know about this year’s parades, where pro-Trump, pro-Israel LGBT groups were outright excluded from any participation while a traitor who damaged our national security, Chelsea (ex Bradley) Manning, was honored, not too dissimilar to the Puerto Rican Day Parade this year honoring an unrepentant terrorist-murderer, Oscar Lopez Rivera, in a deliberate slap in the face to the victims of FALN terrorist attacks, one most notable being the 1975 bombing of Fraunces Tavern. This is why I refer to political LGBT’s. In much the same way Pam refers to political Islam.

          • RCCA

            I agree with the comments you’ve made concerning the aggressive narrow mindedness of some political activists in LGBT. Odd that you include Mark Foley, Ted Haggard, Larry Craig, as “gay” conservatives since they never were honest about their sexual orientation, in fact they defined the meaning of the word degenerate. They didn’t feel safe being “out” because everybody knows that Republicans/conservatives aren’t known for being tolerant. Mark Foley, Ted Haggard, Larry Craig, harmed both LGBT’s and the Republican Party. People like those guys are used to justify the belligerent tactics of the left.

          • Patriotic American

            You think “Republicans/conservatives aren’t known for being tolerant”? Political, groupthink leftist LGBT’s have no tolerance whatsoever, as we’ve seen, for any gay person who’s Republican and nominally conservative. Just as women’s groups have piled on the Sarah Palins and Michelle Bachmanns of the world for not marching in lockstep to their pro-abortion extremist (and just extremist in general) agenda, and the Al Sharptons and the likes of the NAACP have gone after conservative blacks (such as Allen West and Thomas Sowell) with a vengeance. All these grievance groups, without exception, demand total groupthink and remaining chained to the leftist plantation 24/7.

            “Republicans/conservatives” rightly see what’s going on as a promotion of something. And as the Roman historian Tacitus and co-Founding Father Benjamin Franklin both noted about poverty, to promote it any way is to insure it increases and spreads.

          • Rob Porter

            I watched Mark Foley on BBC last night and ended up writing him off as a liar who cares little about slander or the “life destroying” effects of transgenderism that medical science has determined it is, so, never before having come across Foley, wrote him off as yet another politically correct coward and liar willing to feed the disgusting media any lies it wishes the media to promote.

            Well and truthfully said. This is what has become a real issue with myself, the LGBTQ’s “smears, defamations, libels, demonizations and vilifications of anyone who doesn’t bow down to their demands – …..” This was a subject that once did not hold much interest for myself and is still not much of a preoccupation, but the vindictive conduct of the LGBTQ mob changed my attitude fairly dramatically. They feel threatened by failure to accept their point of view and want to lash out and destroy anyone who challenges their rubbish.

        LGBTQ supremacists in general are at war against G-d, nature and biology, to say nothing of their war against Christianity, Judeo-Christian values and traditional morality. They see the spreading of transgenderism in particular, as part of a larger plan to end what they consider to be “white male heterosexual privilege.” Sounds pretty subversive to me, if you were to ask me . . .

      People don’t make themselves, if that was the case, there wouldn’t be any hunchbacks to begin with, everybody would look like a WASP, there would be no spastic individuals, and so on and so on. No one can impose his/her sexual orientation to others either! Did YOU have any choice in your “normal” sexual orientation? Would you disown a gay, lesbian or TS child if you had one?
      I admit that I simply can’t understand transsexualism, but after a painful and lengthy transition, those people seem to feel very happy after surgery, psychological and psychiatric treatment, although the costs of these operations shouldn’t be paid by the taxpayer, otherwise I am not G’d to judge.

        Male and female He created them. Life isn’t about being our self-defined idea of “happy.” You may not be God, but you are required by our loving God to inform others that God will judge them for their disobedience and unrepented sin.

        • Shirley Rosenhohn

          but how about the “Holy Inquisition” and other christian tribunals burning lefthanded people alive because they were convinced that they were ‘posessed’ by demons? Knowing that, would anyway back in those dark days CHOOSE to be lefthanded? And if gay people were burnt alive for being what they were, why didn’t they “choose” a different orientation? People do not make themselves, if that were the case, there would be no hunchbacks, midgets, spastic individuals, retarded, etc. etc. and given the fact that bigots have adjudicated to themselves to rule how others must conduct their lives, like the muzzies do in Iran, Saudi Arabia, the Taliban controlled regions of Afghanistan smf Pakistan, something our western societies thank G’d don’t do any more, i.e. burn people alive, behead or han, I don’t think you would want those savage practices in our societies.. Did you have a choice at birth to be a “normal” hetrosexual woman? Did you choose the colour of your skin and eyes, your race, etc.?
          I’d like to say live and let live.
          Some churches have been very clear about this topic. If people choose to join of them, then they should abide by their rules and dogmas, if people don’t join or don’t believe, let G’d judge them, I won’t.
          I assume you are a christian although. If you really are, please remember what Jesus of Nazareth told those who intended to stone a woman to death for “adultery,” : “LET THE ONE WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE!” All the hypocrite, sanctimonious men and women left in shame. Isn’t it ironic that a Jewish lady like myself (that’s why I NEVER write his translated name with the vowel in the middle) have to remind you of what the founder of your faith taught?
          I happen to know catholic priests and lutheran ministers. They told me (I don’t remember which) that one apostle once said “You’ll be judged by the same yardstick with which you judge others…PLUS lots of inches more.”
          Moreover: if G’d doesn’t approve of the way gay people live their lives, why did He create gays and lesbians then?

          I don’t want to be nasty to you nor to anyone who doesn’t agree with me. I hope I didn’t offend you in any way.
          Be well.

          • How do you know God created them that way? One can then say the same for everyone else, like murderers, rapists etc, even Hitler. God gave us His moral law, and the freedom to choose how we want to behaved and live. If we did not have freedom, we would be robots. If we choose to reject His moral law, we will face the consequences (His judgement).
            With respect to you, I think you misunderstand the meaning of “judge” (condemn). We all judge people’s behaviour for many different reasons, but that does not mean we condemn them. That is for God.
            We are to hate the sin but love the sinner.

            Men lying with men and women lying with women is a sin, according to the same bible you quoted. All sin is a choice. Ask George Michael who stated in his interview with Oprah that he had to make a choice and he chose homosexual behavior. Well, you’ll have to dig up the interview because we can’t ask him. It’s stated over and over in at least the New Testament (which i assume you have read) that we are to resist sin, and some of them sneak up on you, like self-righteousness.

      Already Anderson Cooper of CNN, and the utterly devoid of originality and morals CBC, has paraded a former Navy Seal who now thinks he is a female. Naturally he opposes Trump’s action. What the devil are they putting in food and water nowadays? It matters not what medical science discovers, if it run counter to what individuals want to believe in their confusion of their sexuality, medical science becomes ‘out to lunch’. So much for the wonders of medical science!

      • Patriotic American

        As the media is by and large controlled by those of certain lifestyles (such as Mr. Cooper’s), it figures they would do this. I am reminded of an old saying – “Whoever controls the media, controls the message.” Nowhere is this more true than in cases like this, where the issues of cost (RAND Corporation, being part and parcel of the deep state, has a vested interest in citing lower figures for such surgeries and treatments), combat readiness and unit cohesion are all at stake.

        B.T.W., one ex-transgender person actually agrees with Trump’s ban, citing the issues of cost (not only financially, but also physically and psychologically to the individuals so “transitioning”) and military readiness. You can bet that person won’t be invited anywhere but on Fox.

        It’s amazing how the world bends over backwards for LGBT and minorities in general.

        They never should have been catered to in the first place. They truly believe they the exception to every rule. There are police Departments that have allowed them to alter their appearance and or uniforms. It’s a disgrace.

        • Rob Porter

          I agree about the world bending backwards for minorities, now more than ever the LGBTQ mob. What this has created in the West, America and Canada included, is shabby excuses for democracy. Minorities determine poiicy. The premier of Ontario is a lesbian, so in a gross abuse of power that few challenge, all children in this woefully stupid province must be taught that the LGBTQ XYZ lifestyle is ‘normal’ and an alternative lifestyle. Never are children taught what medical science has discovered, that these life-styles are plagued by disease and suicide, so it’s evident that what is occurring amounts to child abuse, but those in authority couldn’t care a damn.

          • Patriotic American

            I meant to ask you, is there also indoctrination into the tenets of Islam being fed to the children in Ontario schools? If so, this further proves the points I’ve raised . . .

          • Rob Porter

            So far there is not Islamic indoctrination in the school attended by my grandchildren, but I have no idea what is happening in other schools round us. During the last Ramadan all the children at my grandchildren’s school were herded into the school hall and required to sing “the Ramadan song”. In a bluntly worded letter to the principle I told her that I would not stand for any form of Islamic indoctrination with the notion that Islam is a benign belief rather that one that spews hatred, intolerance and bigotry against non-Muslims. I told she could pass on my message to the singing teacher. The latter called me and gave me feckless reason for singing this song, she claiming that it taught children to respect other cultures. I told her, “But you don’t sing Christmas carols or sing Jewish or Hindu songs, so what about respect toward them?” If she was expecting any apology from me for my ‘naughty’ views she must have been disappointed. Instead I suggested she read the Qur’an to see for herself the hatred. I told her I would gladly send her some verses from the Qur’an, but she did not respond to my offer and I don’t have her e-mail address. In respect of the LGBTQ issue, I’ve written to both the school board, the principal of the school, and Katie’s teacher after the children were again herded into the school hall and shown a video showing girls kissing girls and boys kissing boys. In Katie’s case, when back in the classroom the teacher read them a book written by a transgender, so I gave me my views on that trash. These people never try to take me on directly and no doubt they regard me a pain in the butt foreigner because I’ve got the ‘wrong’ accent and unlike the vast majority round here I challenge things while almost all the rest roll and play dead. I guess they don’t care enough about the welfare of their children or have any objection to them being lied to. Political correctness has rendered this society convictionless and spineless, but that began with becoming beliefless.

          I wish I knew how to help those people in rich or poor countries. I simply don’t know. It is very disturbing that also very young kids fell to have been born in “the wrong body.”

        This is what LGBT proselytizers pull on children in school as their opening to convert such vulnerable, easily manipulated souls to their lifestyle. As insidious in its own way as what Pam had written about the indoctrination of our children in the school system to Islam. As both LGBT supremacism and Muslim supremacism are vaunted by the Left, despite one cancelling the other out, it is obvious the Left is utilizing the proverbial “any means necessary” in their goals to destroy the Judeo-Christian pillars of society, along with the capitalist-based system itself, for the purpose of then rebuilding in their own totalitarian, socialist-Communist image.

        • SHMUEL E. KELLERMAN

          no, I totally disagree. There are gay and straight kids raised in a heterosexual home and nobody knows why some turn to be straight and some gay. Teaching young kids to accept people the way they are is not ordering them to “choose” for a life style contrary to their preferences. What people do in the privacy of their own homes is no concern of mine, it doesn’t affect me in any way whatsoever, my income won’t increase or decrease because of how people live their lives, I don’t eat more or less food either because of what people do in bed. I am not G’d to judge anyone, nor a religious authority and, most important, NO BIGOT. Muslim regimes in Iran, Saudi Arabia and in Taliban controlled places in Afghanistan and Pakistan hang or behead gay people, Is that what you would like in the US? Mrs. Geller has been clear on this issue, that’s why I admire her. BTW: in the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, Franco’s Spain, Mussolini’s Italy and other tyrannies gay people didn’t live in “paradise.” If someone had had the choice between being gay or straight in Stalin’s UdSSR or North Corea, I bet no one would choose being gay. Even in the 17th century in Europe gay people would be burnt alive for being gay. Who in his right mind would choose that life style when being
          “straight” and founding a family is/was a lot easier?
          You don’t like gay sex, DO NOT ENGAGE IN IT. AS SIMPLE AS THAT, AND ARE YOU AGAINST GAY MARRIAGE? DON’T MARRY A MAN!
          This is something that has always existed and will continue to exist, also in the animal world!
          And last but not least: REAL heterosexual men who are 1000% sure of their own sexuality are more accepting than those (homophobes) fighting their own latent (hidden) homosexuality!

          • There are NO homosexuals in the animal world! Don’t look for justifications where there are none.
            Homosexuality is just as morally wrong as adultery, fornication or any other sexual deviation, but we still love the people – or are supposed to, in God’s law, even if we don’t agree with the behaviour.
            There is no behaviour in man that has not always existed!

            They justify such C&B stories about the animal world to justify promoting behaviors that are totally unsustainable in terms of the survival of the human species.

            Per your last comment: Do you think people fighting against the jihad terror agenda, the spread of Islamic Sharia law and the overall “Islamization” of society, besides allegedly (in the opinion of leftist ilk like you) being “Islamophobes,” are latent (hidden) Muslims? Because that’s the implication in that particular baseless smear of yours . . . “homophobia” is a propaganda term designed to shut down any debate and silence any opposition to the drive by the Left to further homosexualize and transgenderize society as a means of destabilizing it . . .

    In each and every news story and comment made on this subject there was not one single solitary mention or reference to those directly affected, namely the rank and file members of the military, both officer and enlisted. You would think somewhere in all the commentary that the mood, morale, and disposition of the troops would be addressed but not even so much as a veteran was interviewed or addressed.

    I served from ’68-’72 in the US Navy when such sexual deviations as homosexuality were considered strictly taboo and am damn well proud of it and feel it should remain that way. After all, the military’s job is to break things and kill convincingly.
