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.
