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 Obamas 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 Americas 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 Obamas 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 persons 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.

Go President Trump!!!
Now they know how the rest of America felt about Obambi's dictate

If such people must be enlisted, they must be segregated to a far off base where they can do no harm.
It was such a great Obama plan - recruit the mentally ill to join the military. /s
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?
No more chix-with-sticks?
Not here, not ever!
Glad to hear Sec. Mattis rejected the “guidance” from the three dyke “Generals.”
It’s always amazed me why a crossdresser would want to join the army? It’s not like he can wear gowns and mini skirts. They all weal fatigues
Thank you General, now repeal the other crap obama the perv pushed on the military too,
Obama’s policies on sexual perversions will be understood by the American people when he is forced to acknowledge his own homosexuality.
That’s racist . . . or something.
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.
