Pentagon Halts Obama’s Transgender Endorsement Plan
Breitbart ^ | 06/30/17 | Neil Munro

Posted on 07/01/2017 5:48:04 AM PDT by Enlightened1

The Secretary of Defense has frozen a decision by former President Barack Obama to recruit transgender soldiers this year, and a new poll shows the planned recruitment freeze is very popular.

Two of every three swing voters say the Pentagon should postpone plans to accept “transgender” people who are trying to live as members of the opposite sex, according to the new poll by Rasmussen Reports.

Defense Secretary James Mattis explained his July 30 decision to delay Obama’s plan for six months, just before it was to begin operating:

Since becoming the Secretary of Defense, I have emphasized that the Department of Defense must measure each policy decision against one critical standard: will the decision affect the readiness and lethality of the force? Put another way, how will the decision affect the ability of America’s military to defend the nation? It is against this standard that I provide the following guidance on the way forward in accessing transgender individuals into the military Services.

The six-month delay will encourage and help opponents lobby against Obama’s pro-transgender policy.

Throughout 2016, Obama used his power as president to push schools and other institutions to support the claim by transgender activists that people have a hidden “gender identity” which is independent of their sex and biology. These advocates also say that a person’s sex is determined by their “gender identity,” not their male-or-female body. In turn, the advocates demand that the federal government force Americans to accept the sex-switching “gender identity” claims made by each person, regardless of scientific data about genetics, biology and the variety of normal behavior and appearances shown by normal women and men.

Transgender activists were furious about Mattis’ last-minute decision to block Obama’s directive...

A mind completely consumed with “sexual Identity” is not capable of functioning in the military environment. Sex is primary. The mission becomes secondary or worse.

If such people must be enlisted, they must be segregated to a far off base where they can do no harm.

And a person that much at war with himself is a definite security risk.

Alinsky merely simplified Vladimir Lenin's original scheme for world conquest by communism, under Russian rule. Stalin described his converts as "Useful Idiots."

The Useful Idiots have destroyed every nation in which they have seized power and control. It is presently happening at an alarming rate in the U.S.

Was Obama a "Useful Idiot"? Or did he use these same tactics for his agenda to transform America?

Glad to hear Sec. Mattis rejected the “guidance” from the three dyke “Generals.”

Obama’s policies on sexual perversions will be understood by the American people when he is forced to acknowledge his own homosexuality.

Guam, preferably the side that's going to tip over.

Remember how all this started decades ago? “We just want to keep the government out of our bedrooms”?

I guess we were right all along, when we said they want a lot more than that.

Just keeping the record straight.

Not an accident. Appeal to his mentally ill base, and cut the U.S. military down to size to prevent the country from projecting global power.
