Trump Bans Transgender Individuals From Military Service

Tyler Durden's picture

President Trump just sent liberal snowflakes across America scrambling with a 3-tweet statement sure to be the talking point that proves his fascist ways...

The announcement represents a major shift in US military policy; the decision will affect nearly 150,000 active and/or retired/veteran people on service in the US military.

The DoD's response to the Trump tweets: "Call the White House."

Meanwhile, GLAAD calls Trump's announcement "a direct attack on transgender Americans."

And just like that, Caitlyin Jenner's Senate run gets a boost...

"I felt a great disturbance in the Farce, as if millions of snowflakes suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened."

Trump's decree could be a problem if this number is right:

The Defense Department estimates as many as 7,000 transgender troops serve in the active-duty force of 1.3 million.

President Obama's final defense secretary, Ash Carter, issued a directive last year that permitted transgender troops to serve in the military, and to undergo reassignment surgery. That step left a decision for Trump Secretary of Defense James Mattis to make a decision on whether to allow new transgender troops to enter the military.

It wasn't immediately clear what Trump's announcement would mean for the approximately 250 transgender people now serving openly in the U.S. military.

Here is one Delta Force Operator's reality check (via IJR.com)... All soldiers in the U.S. Army are now required to take a 50-minute training course on transgender sensitivity. Independent Journal Review wanted to know what veterans who have trained thousands of soldiers to fight in combat think about the news.

We spoke with U.S. Army Master Sergeant (Ret.) and Delta Force Operator Dale Comstock. Comstock has seen more war than the average American can wrap their head around. In fact, he's served in every major campaign from Grenada in 1983 to present-day conflicts.

Comstock said:

"This whole political-social experiment is not helping. The reality is, it's in the Army, it's in the Navy, it's in the military. And unless Mattis and Trump rescind all these policies and stop this madness, it's here to stay.

 

It affects morale and combat readiness on many levels. At the end of the day, war fighting is about one thing: Killing people. It's about bringing home our guys alive. It's not about being sensitive to a transgender. This isn't corporate America, this is the military.

 

You can't just put some policy in place because you want people to feel equal. Most guys who join the military, especially special operations forces, were the boys who had dirt clod fights on the playground, wrestled and fist fought, stole each other's girlfriends, and pledged allegiance to the flag. And that same spirit and apex predator mindset goes with us into the military."

For those curious, here is a full breakdown on Transgender in US Military Service from the Williams Institute:

This could only be made better if Mattis gave this announcement in full Patton regalia in front of a giant flag....

Creepy_Azz_Crackaah's picture

The "free" addadicktomies and chop shop surgeries would make the military a gay-only zone as well as further bankrupt the country with trans medical procedures as part of the military budget. Good move.

So, please... someone tell me how the military will better do its job by performing voluntary breast implants on men who desire to be women?

As fun as this is, it's a distraction. Hammer is currently falling on the Democratic Party apparatus. This is perfect bait for the media.

About time they stopped catering to the mental defects that suffer from gender confusion.

Trump must be trying to distract the MSM from covering something for the next few days. I wonder what that is.

if tg people are indeed suicidal, what better place for them than in the military...

"I sexually fantasize about the base I'm in being overrun and totally dominated by the enemy.  Also, I am against being insensitive or bigoted against the enemy."

You know, this same crap was happening to Weimar Germany.  The promotion of transgenderism, homosexuality, pacifism, economic victimization, central bank usury, media owned by only one group of people, communists openly talking about the murders they'll commit when they come to power.  We are already at war.

Did every effing tranny in the U.S. join the military?  It appears that way based on the numbers in the article.

WTF right?

An estimated 0.6% of adults, about 1.4 million, identify as transgender in the United States.

https://williamsinstitute.law.ucla.edu/wp-content/uploads/How-Many-Adult...

given that the military is one of the few places with reasonable medical care, apparently some have gravitated to it.  i wonder how expensive and problematic they really are.  this does sound like an attempt to change the subject or confuse the enemy or something.

this doesn't seem near as interesting or important as wild speculation about imran awan and https://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=Alpha+Jalloh,+Keyan....

more deep state porn please.  fake titties are just not as titillating.

I guess they are planning a BIG WAR,

and this time they want to win that war...

and one of the first topics to clear was this one.

Slack Jack's picture

Trannies care about the climate too.

So, why is the global rise in temperatures so worrisome?

For one thing, as temperatures rise good farmland will become desert (e.g., dust-bowl conditions will probably return to the American Midwest).

Another major problem is sea-level rise.

Have a look at http://pubs.usgs.gov/fs/fs2-00/

The U.S. Geological Survey people claim that;

The Greenland ice sheet melting will raise sea-level 6.55 meters (21.5 feet),
the West Antarctica ice sheet melting will raise sea-level 8.06 meters (26.4 feet),
the East Antarctica ice sheet melting will raise sea-level 64.8 meters (212.6 feet),
and all other ice melting will raise sea-level 0.91 meters (3 feet).

For a grand total of about 80.3 meters (263.5 feet).

So, what does an 80 meter (263 feet) rise in sea-level mean. Have a look at the following map of the world after an 80 meter rise. It means that over one billion people will have to be resettled to higher ground and that much of the most productive agricultural land will be under water. Fortunately, at current rates, the Greenland ice sheet will take over a thousand years to melt and the Antarctica ice sheet, much longer. However, the greater the temperature rise the faster the ice sheets will melt, bringing the problem much closer. Remember, the huge ice sheet that recently covered much of North America, almost completely melted in only 15,000 years (today, only the Greenland ice sheet, and some other small patches of it, remain). Since then (15,000 years ago), sea-levels have risen about 125 meters (410 feet), only 80 meters to go.

The ice sheets have been continuously melting for thousands of years. What is left of them today, is still melting, and will continue to melt. Human caused global warning will cause this remnant to melt significantly faster. This is a big, big, problem.

Global temperatures are increasing. And by quite a lot each year.

2016 is the hottest year on record for global temperatures.

This is 0.0380 degrees centigrade hotter than the previous record year which was 2015.

0.0380 is a large increase in just one year.

2015 was the hottest year (at that time) for global temperatures.

This was 0.1601 degrees hotter than the previous record year which was 2014.

0.1601 is an absolutely huge increase in just one year (at this rate temperatures would increase by 16 degrees in a century.).

2014 was the hottest year (at that time) for global temperatures.

This was 0.0402 degrees hotter than the previous record year which was 2010.

Nobody gives a fuck about the global warming lie. Go spue your BS somewhere else. We are here discussing far more pressing matters. Like no more fags in the military.

FringeImaginigs's picture

We can certainly discuss the most important matter of GLBGTQQAST in the military. But that doesn't somehow make the Global Warming issue BS. It certainly is possible to be a right wing Nazi conservative free-market capitalist religous bigot and still understand science. Although I have to admit there aren't many in that category.

The next few weeks will be entertaining.

All I can say is that I thank the Great Maker for allowing this little bit of common sense to return.

If WW3 is brewing, shouldn't trans folk be grateful they will be spared death on the front lines?

No, the left would scream just as loud if he declared that the military was to be ONLY trans.

Science?  Manipulated and fraudulent data (kept secret), secret (ends-driven) "models", every single hypothesis proven false yet still held up as "fact", censorship and intimidation of opposing views, etc., etc. .

There's no science in Global Warming, only a Fuck You.

... may I add, NASA just confirmed sea levels are FALLING... not rising. See: The Political Agenda Behind the Man-Made Global Warming Movement. Wise up.

Fuck off. I hope the water level in your glass rises and drowns you.

konputa's picture

OK, Slack Jack Off, show us where the sea level has risen.  I live on the coast do you?

francis_the_wonder_hamster's picture

Sea levels ARE rising.  They have been doing so since long before industrialization.  The pace of that rise hasn't changed since industrialization.  This is one of the worst, and most easy to refute, straw man anecdotal arguments in the whole Climat Change farce.

Also, in a related subject, polar bear populations set new record highs every year AND THEY LIKE SWIMMING!!!

Scientists do not even know how sun works.  Fusion has never been completely created in lab.  Only separate steps, and with energy loss meaning nature disfavors it.  Sunspots reveal interior of sun, winch is much cooler.  So scientists do not even understand basic mechanism of sun, or have ability to predict weather, yet you know climate in 100 years?

leftcoastfool's picture

Gravity provides the necessary "free" energy to allow fusion to do its thing in stars.  We're trying to recreate those conditions without gravity's help, hence the difficulties obtaining a COP>1 in the lab...

Wait till Trump is out of office and some Democrat gets in. It will be LGBTQWZDYYTRV ( I hope I didn't forget any special groups) only!!

Of course the MIC will have the super duper, extra expanded, special special forces by then to do all the real work (robots?) The rest will be for public consumption, social engineering and CNN viewers.

Lurk Skywatcher's picture

But if its SDFJKHWKHFWI only, doesn't that mean that the Democrats want them all dead?

The reason I know that the left suffers from a mental disease is because the dissonance of their every single outcry hurts to even think about.

Well, I think it would play out with you attempting to hit it then it would, shockingly, hit back giving you nowhere to go.

Talk about a rude awakening...

During the later stages of the fall of the Roman Empire, one of the most popular academic discussions of the era was whether or not angels had dicks or pussies. I kid you not. Humans seem to gravitate towards the same trivialities towards The End, no matter the Age. 

edotabin's picture

We have the internet. All collective knowledge of humanity is in the palm of our hand. They didn't. What's our excuse?

francis_the_wonder_hamster's picture

"What's our excuse?"

We confuse facts with knowledge?

TeraByte's picture

This Roma burns also much more money for military and health care with no such comparative wastage anywhere on the planet. Such a poor input output relation is now worse than, what fell the Soviet, where a steel tone required three times more energy than in the west. When we combine lunatic social experimenting with runaway train administrative and financial  practices, a goal of maintaining global military hegemony is a dangerous delusion and will have tragic consequences.

Trump Blocks Transgender Individuals From Military Service

My responsse: This "GENDER CONFUSION" business is so disturbing. Let's take a look at what the author of creation has to say about the matter. If you are having a problem with this information, know this: Your problem is with GOD Almighty, not ME.

Genesis 5:2New  (NKJV)

2 He created them male and female, and blessed them and called them Mankind in the day they were created.

Mark 10:6 (NKJV)

6 But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’[a]

Matthew 19:4 (NKJV)

4 And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made[a] them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’[b]

GOD ALMIGHTY is NOT CONFUSED! SO WHAT IS MAN'S PROBLEM?

Mpizzie's picture

Ben Shapiro has an interesting take on posts like yours.

You are using the bible as the ultimate authority - what if someone doesn't believe in the bible?

This is why these idiots keep winning these battles - you keep showing up with bibles they don't believe in, so they just run over you and tell people 'separation of church and state'.  It didn't work for gay marriage, and it won't work for trans people in the military.

Do you want to win, or do you want to be right?

Develop an alternative method of arguing if you wish to be effective.  

GUS100CORRINA's picture

Mpizzie .... 

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

We need to be very careful not to water down GOD's word, but to speak His TRUTH IN LOVE (TIL). 

The verses are simply listed with no commentary on my part. The Lord GOD has instructed us to let His word go forth as he wrote it. His word will do the rest. Man doesn't need to do anything other than present it. 

HEBREWS 4:12-13 says ...

Hebrews 4:12-13New International Version (NIV)

12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. 13 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.
