The Final Insult to American Troops From a Departing Leftist Administration

Ban on transgender troops to be lifted July 1

"According to officials, the Pentagon plans to announce the repeal of its ban on transgender service members July 1, a controversial decision that would end nearly a year of internal wrangling.

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon plans to announce the repeal of its ban on transgender service members July 1, a controversial decision that would end nearly a year of internal wrangling among the services on how to allow those troops to serve openly, according to Defense officials.

Top personnel officials plan to meet as early as Monday to finalize details of the plan, and Deputy Defense Secretary Bob Work could sign off on it by Wednesday, according to a Defense official familiar with the timetable but who spoke on condition of anonymity because officials were not authorized to speak publicly about it. Final approval would come from Defense Secretary Ash Carter, and the announcement will be on the eve of the Fourth of July weekend.

The plan would direct each branch of the armed services over a one-year period to implement new policies affecting recruiting, housing and uniforms for transgender troops, one official said.

Carter announced last year that the ban, which affects a fraction of the military’s 1.3 million active duty members, would be lifted unless a review showed that doing so would have “adverse impact on military effectiveness and readiness.”

That phrase raised concerns on Capitol Hill where a key lawmaker questioned whether an “honest and balanced assessment” could be made of the effects on “military readiness, morale and good order and discipline” under Carter’s guidelines for the review.

Rep. Mac Thornberry, the Texas Republican who chairs the Armed Services Committee, called on the Pentagon in a letter last July to provide a range of information on the impacts of repealing the ban.

Among the questions Thornberry asked:

“What would be the projected cost of changing the transgender service policy? To what extent would military barracks, ship berths, gym shower facilities, latrines, and other facilities have to be modified to accommodate personnel in various stages of transition and what would be the projected cost of these modifications?” Thornberry wrote.

He also asked about how far the Pentagon would go to provide medical treatment for transgender troops, “including behavioral health treatment, cross-hormone therapy, voice therapy, cosmetic or gender reassignment surgery and other treatments?”

Pentagon officials responded to Thornberry in September, said Eric Pahon, a department spokesman. The main focus of the Pentagon’s review of the policy has been on the effect of repeal on the military’s readiness to fight, Pahon said. More details about the review’s findings are expected to be released soon, he said.

Thornberry was not happy with the timing of the announcement, he said in a statement Friday.

If reports are correct, I believe Secretary Carter has put the political agenda of a departing administration ahead of the military’s readiness crisis," Thornberry said. "The force is exhausted from back to back deployments and spending their home-station time scrambling to get enough equipment and training before they deploy again. My focus is on helping the troops now — to be the most effective, deployable force possible.

"Consistent with that philosophy, when we learned DOD was looking at new policies on the service of transgender individuals, the Committee posed a number of questions to DOD," he said. "In particular, there are readiness challenges that first must be addressed, such as the extent to which such individuals would be medically non-deployable. Almost a year has passed with no answer to our questions from Secretary Carter. Our top priority must be warfighting effectiveness and individual readiness is an essential part of that.”

[emphasis added]
What Congress thinks is of no consequence to this renegade presidency and his Leftist bureaucrats. The Progressive agenda includes the virtual elimination of defensive capabilities (and borders open to any insurrectionist), as the USA is brought down to the level they think it deserves. What damage can they complete in the next seven months? Plenty. The Clintons merely trashed the White House before they departed. Obama will try to trash the entire USA before he is kicked out.

Quote of the Week

From Crude Ideas,
" Lessons from the culture war
One mentally disturbed kid opens fire in a black church. He was photographed with a confederate flag.

Result: Republicans and Democrats alike declare that each and every confederate flag everywhere and anywhere is a hateful symbol of an evil past and must be eradicated completely from society, lest it continue to cause shootings.

Yet another muslim goes on a shooting spree.

Result: Republicans and Democrats alike refuse to regard this as at all related to Islam. The result is Democrats trying to blame it all on guns and Christians, and Republicans denying the links while not being completely forthright about what the cause may be. Lack of overseas military engagements, perhaps?

Go figure. "

The Unending Expansion of the Unconstitutional National Police Army

There Are Now More Bureaucrats With Guns Than U.S. Marines
Report: Non-military federal agencies spend $1.48 billion on guns and ammo since 2006

There are now more non-military government employees who carry guns than there are U.S. Marines, according to a new report.

Open the Books, a taxpayer watchdog group, released a study Wednesday that finds domestic government agencies continue to grow their stockpiles of military-style weapons, as Democrats sat on the House floor calling for more restrictions on what guns American citizens can buy.

The “Militarization of America” report found civilian agencies spent $1.48 billion on guns, ammunition, and military-style equipment between 2006 and 2014. Examples include IRS agents with AR-15s, and EPA bureaucrats wearing camouflage.

“Regulatory enforcement within administrative agencies now carries the might of military-style equipment and weapons,” Open the Books said. “For example, the Food and Drug Administration includes 183 armed ‘special agents,’ a 50 percent increase over the ten years from 1998-2008. At Health and Human Services (HHS), ‘Special Office of Inspector General Agents’ are now trained with sophisticated weaponry by the same contractors who train our military special forces troops.”

Open the Books found there are now over 200,000 non-military federal officers with arrest and firearm authority, surpassing the 182,100 personnel who are actively serving in the U.S. Marines Corps.

UKIP Wins It's Nations Back

It's Independence Day in the UK:
Brexit: David Cameron to quit after UK votes to leave EU

It would be for the new prime minister to carry out negotiations with the EU and invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, which would give the UK two years to negotiate its withdrawal, he said.

"The British people have voted to leave the European Union and their will must be respected," said Mr Cameron. "The will of the British people is an instruction that must be delivered."

Bank of England governor Mark Carney said UK banks' "substantial capital and huge liquidity" allowed them to continue to lend to businesses and households.

The Bank of England is ready to provide an extra £250bn of support, he added.

The referendum turnout was 71.8% - with more than 30 million people voting - the highest turnout at a UK-wide vote since 1992.

Mr Farage - who has campaigned for the past 20 years for Britain to leave the EU - told cheering supporters "this will be a victory for ordinary people, for decent people".
NEGOTIATE its withdrawal?? Is this like a contested divorce, where the lawyers get everything? How soon will the UK stop the flood of incoming Muslims?

This is truly exciting. Which others will follow? Not Greece, of course, they are parasitic on Germany.

Black Lives Matter, On the White, Patriarchic, Right Wing Racist Shooter.

#BlackLivesMatter’s Cry For Help
BLM, on Orlando Shooter:
Despite the media’s framing of this as a terrorist attack, we are very clear that this terror is completely homegrown, born from the anti-Black white supremacy, patriarchy and homophobia of the conservative right and of those who would use religious extremism as a weapon to gain power for the few and take power from the rest. Those who seek to profit from our deaths hope we will forget who our real enemy is, and blame Muslim communities instead.

But we will never forget.
In case you didn’t notice, Omar Mateen, an Afghani-American radical gay Muslim registered as a Democrat, was really a right-wing, gay-hating, white conservative. No, Black Lives Matter isn’t crazy at all. Why would you say so? More:
Until these systems are defeated, until anti-Blackness no longer fuels anti-Muslim and anti-queer and trans bigotry, exploitation, and exclusion — we can never be truly free.
Nope, perfectly sane. By no means is this a foaming expectoration from a bunch of racist far-left crackpots.
If you should come upon a BLM insurrectionist, be prepared for complete insanity. Especially if you are white. They are black racists who are morally self-enabled to do virtually anything. And they receive no negative feedback from the Left, because they are a Victimhood Class which cannot be racist no matter how racist they behave.

The Left Is Dangerous For Gays

Some Gay Voters Say It's 'Dangerous' to Come Out for Trump

But while Eric is a vocal Trump supporter, he declined to provide his last name due to fear of violence or "doxxing," the malicious publication of a private citizen's personal information online.

"When you put your name out on a national level as supporting someone who attracts that much vitriol and disgust, you're putting yourself up for doxxing ... Especially for someone like me who's considered a 'traitor,'" added Eric, who is a member of LGBTrump, an online network for LGBTQ people who support the GOP presidential hopeful.

So will gay Republicans be wearing Trump 2016 t-shirts and "Make America Great Again" hats at LGBTQ Pride events this year? Eric said it's unlikely.

"It's easy to come out of the closet," he said. "It's dangerous to come out as a Trump supporter."
Doxxing is a form of terrorism. It makes you vulnerable to harm due to your thought crimes.

First Assassination Attempt on Trump

There will be more; the media and other Leftist rhetoric will see to it.
19-year-old man tried to kill Trump at Las Vegas rally, officials say

A federal officer confirmed Monday that the man arrested at a Donald Trump rally in Las Vegas on Saturday had tried to steal an officer's gun to kill the presumptive GOP nominee.

Michael Steven Sandford, 19, was charged with an act of violence on restricted grounds in U.S. District Court in Nevada on Monday.

The complaint, filed by Special Agent Swierkowski, states Sandford drove to the rally from California last Friday, according to the Associated Press.

The suspect had stopped at a Las Vegas gun range for shooting practice before attending the rally at Treasure Island Casino.

At the rally, Sandford had walked up to a Las Vegas police officer and said he wanted to get Trump's autograph. Sandford then grabbed the gun, but was immediately subdued by the officer. No shots were fired.

Leftist War on Minorities: Islam vs Women Version

The Left: Islam equals Diversity!! We MUST HAVE MORE DIVERSITY! Religious freedom, ya know, and assimilation!! (They'll all be Democrats!)

Diversity: All Cultures Are Equal

US Constitution: NO! Mexicano Corruption: Si!! Diversity as Sedition.

Is there any intent in these law breaking illegal aliens to assimilate?

I think that yet another Leftist cult signal - Diversity is Strength - is not just false, it is suicidal. And I think that Leftists know that and cherish the thought.
