Trump starts to peel back the military onion: Bans transvestites

Finally.  Should have been on Day One.

Trump Says Transgender People Will Not Be Allowed in the Military

I write this as one of my nieces (by marriage) is attending Armor Officer Basic Course in Ft. Benning to become a tank platoon leader

She should no more be a "combat leader" than she can levitate.

One of the things I was growing more and more concerned about was the Trump Administration's inaction on reversing the damage Obama caused the military through his test-tube corruption of what it's supposed to be about..

Like most leftists, Obama both loathed the military and viewed it as a play thing to experiment with social programs.  After all, HIS kids will never serve. 

The result of Obama's military hatred?

In addition to the lack of equipment, the personel cuts in the middle of a war, the sequestration budget cuts and the like (had to keep those Obamaphones running) Obama decided to superimpose his fringe-left, daisy-picking views over the military structure.  The result?

A complete debacle.  And a much, much weaker US Military.

Is it any wonder the Russians and the Chinese laugh at us?

Women in Combat Arms is a disaster.  The only definitive study ever done by any military component, the Marines, proved that.
This was as stacked as a unit could get with the best Marines to give it a 100 percent success rate as we possibly could. End result? The best women in The GCEITF as a group in regard to infantry operations were equal or below in most all cases to the lowest 5 percent of men as a group in this test study. 
They are slower on all accounts in almost every technical and tactical aspect and physically weaker in every aspect across the range of military operations.
That's right, ladies and gentlemen.  Your female platoon leader can't keep up.  Can't ruck.  Can't shoot.  Can't carry her own equipment.

"Physically weaker in every aspect across the range of military operations."

That the scum Obama appointed to run the military... and that includes many political flag officers... were sort of an informal "affirmative action"... goes without saying.  The then Secretary of the Navy, Ray Mabus was among the worst.  He rejected the official study out of hand, claiming:
Mabus sounded off on the Marine Corps' Ground Combat Element Integrated Task Force following the release of partial findings last week that showed combat units containing women performed more slowly and shot less accurately than all-male control groups, and that female volunteers had much higher injury rates over the course of the experiment. 
"It started out with a fairly large component of the men thinking 'this is not a good idea' and 'women will never be able to do this,' "When you start out with that mindset, you're almost presupposing the outcome," Mabus told NPR Sept. 11. When you start out with that mindset, you're almost presupposing the outcome."  
He added that there probably "probably there should have been a higher bar to cross to get into the experiment" for female volunteers. 
In his Saturday Sept. 12 Facebook post, LeHew rebutted those claims, saying that the leaders who participated were the most mature, progressive and open minded in the Marine Corps. 
Mabus actually spent 2 years in the Navy, and received his automatic promotion to Lieutenant (JG) on time.
Justin D. LeHew from Columbus Grove, Ohio, enlisted in the Marine Corps July 11, 1988. After graduating recruit training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, South Carolina, Private First Class LeHew reported to Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, California for training as an Assault Amphibian Crewman.
SGM Justin LeHew

Sergeant Major Justin LeHew has served 29 years and holds the Navy Cross, the second highest combat award the Marines have, second only to the Medal of Honor.
Then LT(JG) Ray Mabus

Mabus, of course was guilty of his own allegation, of course; that is, he had a "no matter what the official/sanctioned report/experiment concludes, we're going forward with this insanity" mindset which has, of course, presupposed an outcome... that has resulted in this insanity of lower morale, lower standards, lower effectiveness and lower capability.

Mabus had zero proof that any of his positions were legitimate... or anything besides political.  In fact, the proof was just the opposite: that he was dead wrong.  And SGM LeHew simply couldn't let that stand, so he put his career on the line and set the Secretary straight, not that it made any difference to a leftist POG like Mabus.

But this was just the second arrow in the leftist quiver.  It started with the legalization of gay marriage in the military, which has led to massive fraud committed by troops who simply, technically, "marry" an on base roommate which enables BOTH of them to receive a whole host of benefits denied their single counterparts... large cash amounts every month called "BAH," or "Basic Allowance for Housing," (Which depends on where you're stationed but it's a tax-free bonus that single troops who have to live in the barracks because they're single don't get)  and "Separate Rations," which is a food allowance those living in the barracks typically don't receive... and the irony is that BOTH soldiers in the "marriage" receive this benefit.

Putting the issue of morality aside for the moment, this adds up to several thousand dollars per year, tax free, each, that's the result of fraudulent marriage.  And who's picking up the tab for this?

How does this institutional scam make our military MORE effective to close with and destroy the enemy?

And it happens all the time.  Of course, the simple solution is to end gay marriage on active duty if we want to save a few hundred million dollars a year... but hey.

They then moved on to forcing the taxpayer and the military to both pay for AND accommodate trans-gender mutilation surgery... the most famous of which at this point was actually paying tens of thousands to mutilate Bradley Manning, then convicted and sentenced to 35 years confinement for the release of 750,000 classified military documents... surgery and medication that took place WHILE HE WAS IN PRISON.

Clearly, the blow back from this insane program has been enough.  The purpose of the military isn't to cut your wang off and give you fake boobs... nor is the purpose the opposite, to cut your boobs off and attach some sort of wang so you can be one of the boys.

Those engaging in that sort of thing have issues.  And anyone with societal issues so desperate that they have to be mutilated to satisfy a leftist shtick in the political realm have precisely zero place in the Armed Forces of the United States.

It reached the point where, to make sure we don't offend the gender sensibilities of the female crewmen on the USS Gerald Ford, this carrier was built... without urinals.

Imagine going to a ballpark... say, Safeco Field... finding a men's room, and just seeing stalls.

More expensive (leftists don't give a damn how much their experimentation costs, THEY ain't paying for it, WE are) less efficient, takes up more room, etc, etc.

But, by God, EQUALITY demands it!

There are many layers to this onion yet to peel.  This is but the start.  But it's a good start.  And now, we have one less thing to detract from the budget and the effectiveness of the US Military when we can, as a people, afford neither the cost nor the reduced capabilities this kind of nonsense causes.

Next: getting women out of ground combat slots.

Jayne and the democratian would sell their own children to get the CRC/Loot Rail scam built.

Typically, editorials and "opinion" pieces from the local democrat daily newsletter have a common thread: they're bereft of logic, common sense and rarely reflect the community they are, allegedly, here to serve.

Jayne's idiocy this morning is no exception.

It starts out hammering Oregon for doing what he and the rest of the morons he works with would cheerfully implement if it was for a new, unneeded, unaffordable waste of billions known as the "CRC/Loot Rail scam."

The hypocrisy of such a position is obvious.

THEN, he waves Jaime Herrera around like SHE is EVER going to do ANYTHING about any of this.  She won't, of course; given the opportunity during the CRC/Loot Rail scam she did nothing of substance and her positions, letters and empty threat collection designed to make the people of Southwest Washington BELIEVE she was doing something... accomplished absolutely nothing.

The CRC was primarily killed by two people: Don Benton and Ann Rivers, using Tiffany Couch's forensic accounting skills which told a truth this despicable rag could care less about and the political position of David Madore, who put voice county-wide to the voter-hatred of the fraud the democratian continues to support at all costs no matter what we think... because, after all, we're stupid and the democratian/downtown mafia knows SO much more than we do.

Rivers, who was a major force in killing that rip-off then, has become such a democrat that she now works for a democrat campaign firm, Strategies 360, while a sitting GOP state senator who will be well-compensated by her democrat masters for screwing us sideways on the state budget and the WEA McCleary scam.

She's been just as instrumental in resurrecting this rip off as she was in killing it.  I hope whatever they're paying her to betray us is worth it as much as they paid her on the gas tax scam and the other ways she's screwed the people of her district and Southwest Washington.

Meanwhile, Jayne comes out and babbles utter nonsense like this:
The bill calls for creation of an Oregon transportation commission to seek that approval by the end of 2018. That gives us up to 17 months for what could turn into a brouhaha between the states. It gives us nearly a year and a half to ponder what in the world Oregon officials were thinking. The guess is that Clark County residents are going to make plenty of noise about this, enough to draw the attention of the governor and lawmakers in Olympia. And considering that Washington has 75 percent more population and a Gross Domestic Product more than twice as large as Oregon, officials here have plenty of weight to throw around.
As if Oregon cares about any of that.

There is nothing... NOTHING in the babble from Jayne that will cause Oregon to do ANYTHING.

All the sturm und drang in the world from this county didn't move the CRC Scammers one inch... and they LIVE here.  What makes a moron like Jayne believe...for one minute... that it will make any difference to another state?

Thus, there is ZERO weight to throw around.  And this faux outrage is tempered by the lack of a jihad on the democratian's part of CTran's sell out on TriMet's ability to exercise eminent domain in Clark County or get $5 million instead... a fraud and a rip off that at the time and since has drawn, relatively speaking, cricket chirps from these same thugs with barrels of ink.

But that's not the worst of it.  Oh, no.  That's reserved for THIS idiotic tidbit from ol' Greg:
Instead, Oregon is either consciously or subconsciously extracting some revenge for the manner in which Washington lawmakers scuttled the Columbia River Crossing proposal in 2013. That might result in some benefits of this unnecessary salvo from our unneighborly neighbors. If it triggers discussion about replacing the Interstate 5 Bridge and eventually building additional bridges across the Columbia, it will have been worth it.
So.  This scumbag ascribes a motive which doesn't exist... in the HOPES that it gets the CRC Project back up and running... saying such a move would be "worth it."

Yeah.  Because, you know.... paying a huge toll to cross a bridge to then pay ANOTHER toll that Oregon has put into place... why, that makes PERFECT sense.

This, then, is an INVITATION for Oregon to put up their toll booths, as long as it "triggers discussion about replacing the Interstate 5 Bridge..."

It won't be worth it, of course.  Our utterly worthless congresswoman has been sitting on her thumbs since she parachuted in here 10 years ago and she has offered absolutely NOTHING in terms of solving our cross river transportation problems, and if the I-5 Bridge rip off takes place, it will suck ANY available transportation funding for additional bridges across the river out of the area for decades.

Notice how much the democratian, Rivers, Wilson, Harris, Vick and Steve Stuart all think the same?

Who CARES what the people of this county want? Why does THAT even matter?

Clearly, these clowns would sell their children into slavery to get this insanity built... and damn what we think or want on the matter.

We NEED and WANT additional bridges built FIRST.  THEN we can look at replacing the I-5 Bridge.

Otherwise...

But to insist that Oregon doing what the democratian WANTS to do to get a bridge scam built, and that we have ALREADY done in screwing up the King County road system beyond belief is some how "bad," or "wrong" or "unfair," as if "fairness" was somehow a deciding factor in government?

That's sheer hypocrisy.  But then, that's also Jayne and the democratian... so I repeat myself.

Of COURSE Oregon "shouldn't" do this.  But how quick would the rag be to condemn if the shoe were on the other foot?  They had, if memory serves, zero problem calling for tolling on these same freeways as a way to get the CRC Scam rolling, even before a shovel full of dirt was turned.

They, if I'm not mistaken, wanted tolling on the 205 even though NOTHING was going to be built in conjunction with that freeway as a result of the CRC Scam.

So, perhaps they should explain why... when THEY want tolls... it's good... good... But when Oregon wants tolls?  It's bad... bad...

The outcome's the same.  We get raped ether way.  But in democratian land, raping OUR wallets is perfectly OK if it's for the right cause... (bridge they want replaced... ballpark scam they want built... just to name two...) that we have zero say over.

So, Herrera did what she always does in a case like the proposed Oregon tolls.... just like the CRC Scam: she wrote a letter.

None of them made any DIFFERENCE, you understand, but MAN, did she get people thinking she was actually DOING something... or what?

The legislative/congressional business is an outcome-based business.

During the CRC/Loot Rail War, Jaime did an amazing job of making people BELIEVE she was on our side... and she made people BELIEVE that she was actually fighting for us... actually DOING something.

The questions I asked about her involvement in stopping the CRC Scam... repeatedly... were never answered:

1.  What, specifically, have you done legislatively to kill this project?
2.  Since the answer to question 1 is "nothing," WHY haven't you killed this project in Congress?

Now, we're in the same situation with Oregon's idiotic tolling scam.  With the flip of democrats Wilson, Rivers, Harris and Vick on the CRC, that scam needs to be addressed as well.  Just don't hold your breath in either case.

Anyone looking at it knows it's just another suction hose stabbed into the fiscal jugular vein of the 75,000 or so commuters living here in Clark County... because the nearly $300 million they extort from us here in state income tax just isn't enough to support the Oregon welfare state.

So, what does Herrera do?

What she always does.  She writes a letter.  She had it publicized.  She made the dreamers of this county actually BELIEVE she's GOING to do SOMETHING... and it got the widest possible dispersion so every media outlet in SW Washington would show this hard-charging, "young" congresswoman "fighting for us!"

Except, of course, for one thing: no amount of snarky letters designed to fool her constituents into continuing to vote for this worthless do-nothing will accomplish anything.


The letter doesn't SAY anything, you understand.  And that's the whole point.

It's worthless.  It's LESS than worthless.  And what Herrera SHOULD have done is to ACT on the scam FIRST, kill this deal and let the whole world know about it AFTER the fact... and write letters later.

Failing that, she SHOULD have spelled out in detail HOW she was going to run this plan over with a tank. But, oh, no. The CRC Scam taught her that all she HAS to do is write letters... and in this case, publicly slapping Brown won't make the Governor intransigent about this or anything... will it?

I bet Kate Brown is terrified.  I bet that she's had at least one absolutely sleepless night.

And I also bet Brown is going to completely ignore it, since it means nothing and more importantly, ACCOMPLISHES nothing... except to fool the people of this region into, once again, believing she's actually doing something.to make a difference. when the reality is completely different.

Jaime Herrera has proven many things over the last 10 years she's defrauded the people of this area into believing she's actually "representing us."  You can, for example, count the number of open town hall meetings she's had since she moved into Congress on one hand... 6+ years ago. And that proves she's an intellectual coward, afraid to face the people foolish enough to have put her into the job in the first place.

That, by itself, is reason enough to get rid of her.  Add to that her joining with the two fringe-left nutbergers representing us in the US Senate to attack then-candidate Donald Trump, and you can see where she has managed to destroy any real ability to ask for help from the White House on this deal... since you can bet that Trump's staff knows who was "naughty" and who was "nice" during the election.

So, in effect, Herrera is on her own.

And that's a terrifying thought indeed.

Just not for the government or special interests of Oregon.

As expected, the morons in the GOP-controlled senate screwed up the Hirst fix AND just handed the election in the 45th to the democrats.

On July 14th, I pointed out that the idiots running the state senate, who just got done screwing us AGAIN (First, it was the gas tax.... next, it was wasting unnecessary billions on the teacher's union...) had completely blown the handling of the Hirst issue.

The ONLY way that stood any chance to get Hirst "fixed" was to hang it on the General Fund budget.  As I pointed out:
The House democrats refuse to move on Hirst (Why should they? The GOP Senate has given up its leverage to the House as much as the entire Legislature ceded their authority to the Supreme Court) and the GOP Senate refuses to vote out a capital budget.

Each blames the other, publicly. And nothing happens.

The problem is simple: In voting out the General Fund Budget, the Senate gave away the keys to the castle.

That, of course, is beyond the idiocy and insanity of the REPUBLICAN senate smacking US with BILLIONS of dollars in new taxes... quite unnecessarily. Which, when added to their rape of our wallets on the gas tax/tab fee rip off kind of ends any particular reason to vote GOP in the legislature.... doesn't it?

So, yeah. If the GOP Senate needed to hold up a budget to "fix" Hirst, although any fix would only last as long as they maintain control of the Senate, which ends in a little less than 4 months, regardless; they picked the WRONG budget to hold hostage.

The democrats have no crying need to cave on this: any fix would only be temporary anyway, and what makes anyone think for a second that Inslee wouldn't veto it anyhow?
That, of course, is precisely what happened.

And now, the dems can beat the GOP to death in the 45th over this stupidity.  They can ginzu the GOP-controlled senate because of the utter stupidity of people like Rivers and Wilson who were too damned dense to see reality.  Now they can hang every, single, unbuilt project around the GOP's neck and they can do it with ease.

We look at this, and we scream "property rights!!!" In the urban locations where the dems are strong, the idea of water rights and property rights is esoteric nonsense.  In the city, they turn on a faucet and they get water.  That's all they know or care about.

Now, the dems will go out in the urban areas and POUND the GOP as the reason the schools and other buildings aren't getting built, and the reason dozens of other state-financed projects are not going to happen.

And the problem is the GOP response to that... might as well not be a response at all. Even if it COULD be "explained" in such a way that it would make any difference, in politics, the rule is simple:  If you're explainin'?

You're losin'.

What was a difficult election to win in the 45th... just became impossible.  And most of that is based on GOP ineptitude and a complete lack of strategic vision... not to mention the short-sighted efforts of the RINO contingent in THEIR campaign to depress the GOP vote by voting like they were all named "Jim Moeller," because causing our gas taxes and property taxes and tab fees to skyrocket is certainly a winning formula.

And the idea that we HAVE to elect that woman in the 45th "or else..." or else we get a "state income tax..." is nonsense, since no state income tax can be implemented without a vote of the people... except for the wannabe income taxes like the one the GOP just implemented with their caving on the paid leave scam... completely ignoring that obviously bogus "super majority rule" they eyewashed us with at the start of session.

So... no.  The last chance for GOP control continuing in the senate or happening in the House just blew apart.  And the reason is the ever shrinking concentric circle that ends in the laps of the GOP in the senate.  They will have no one to blame but themselves... and the result may be suffering even greater than that the GOP Senate just got done inflicting on us.

Sheesh. That we trust government to these idiots is simply inexplicable.
