After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow......Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory....
Because President Trump (like the vast majority of active service people and veterans) believes that the mission of the military is to kill people and destroy things in the defense of our country and free way of life (the traditional consensus view) he's some kind of racist bigot, transgenderphobe.
Wednesday's bombshell tweet by President Trump on banning transgender people from military service was a very, very BIG DEAL. Why? Not just because of combat readiness and unit cohesion problems and costs (actually in the billions), or that TGs are mentally ill with serious identity and reality problems (born male die male) and don't belong in the military* (they also have a very high suicide rate rooted in their illness), but because it signaled the end of an era: the reorientation of military priorities where for the last eight years the most unpopular President in US history with our active servicemen and veterans (see and see) made leftist social engineering experiments (treating the U.S. Military as a laboratory to test social theories) the grand, overarching purpose of our military.
*TGs are the most loathed and unpopular group within the military. 66% say that they are a disruptive force hurtful to combat readiness and unit cohesion.
As of Wednesday those days are over - along with the downsizing of our military and dangerous rules of engagement that demoralized and depressed our troops (see), and caused three defense secretaries (Gates, Panetta and Hagel) to quit their jobs in utter disgust (see).
Wednesday, July 26th, was also significant in another respect: it was the 69th anniversary of President Truman signing into law Executive Order 9981 abolishing racial discrimination in the military (see). This was an unmistakable sign that ending segregation between healthy normal heterosexual Americans of different races is radically different from integrating the army with mentally ill people, or those with psychosexual disorders and defects like gay men and women. It is fascinating to note that President Trump came into this life during the Truman era (b. June 14, 1946); that he was born on the 26th month of Truman's presidency (see); and that Wednesday the 26th day of July was the 26th week of Trump's presidency (see). An amazing numerical coincidence that could be a sign of providence at work.
Donald Trump is hell-bent, like no President since Ronald Reagan, on making the mighty U.S. military machine the most powerful, potentially desructive and feared fighting force on Earth; and the way to do that completely, thoroughly and absolutely is to undo all of the social experiments short of racially desegregating the military post-July 26, 1948. That means reinstituting the "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy while phasing out homosexuals; and eliminating women from combat roles on land, sea and in the air*. Hopefully, Donald Trump reinstituting the ban on transgender service is the beginning of creating the most lethally combat ready and cohesive army humanly possible to defend Western civilization and the Free World from its anti-Democratic enemies and forces of medieval regression and barbarism.
*As someone commented on another blog: "Given the amount of training ... and the cost, thereof ... to female pilots, they should be allowed to retain their positions, until retirement. However, the training of women for fighter pilots should cease, immediately."
