Obama’s Tranny Plan

Justin Amash is a US Congressman serving Michigan’s third district.  He is among the youngest members to serve in Congress and a first-generation Palestinian Arab of Greek Orthodox descent.  This probably explains why Congressman Amash opposes suspension of Barack Obama’s plan to destroy the US military … the plan to validate and accept transgender recruits into the Armed Forces, and offer to them life-time medical care.  It is difficult for me to understand the rationale of imposing upon the American taxpayer the tremendous costs associated with hormone treatments, expensive surgeries, and lots of bed rest while normal people, which is to say persons who are not confused about their gender, are in the field training for combat.

Let’s review: Obama’s Tranny Plan (OTP) is part of the progessive war on American culture.  It follows the absurd conclusion that we should classify gender according to an individual’s declared “gender identity,” rather than by their actual human biology.  The leftists have taken their argument a step further: the federal government should force Americans to accept the “gender identity” claims made by each person, regardless of science.

American leftists are big on forcing people to do things.

The OTP also demands dignity and respect to transsexuals in community showers, and sleeping spaces.  This is fine —we can respect gender confused persons while they maintain their status as civilians, where it doesn’t matter how they dress for work in the morning.

Service in the Armed Forces of the United States is a unique experience.  It isn’t the same thing as getting up in the morning and riding the subway to work at a law firm. The mission of our armed forces is winning wars and protecting the nation. Personnel policy must recognize that combat readiness is, and must remain, our first priority —not, as leftists insist, to use the military to achieve social engineering. We must also recognize that gender-confused people are not simply regular folks who like to play dress up.  According to Dr. Ryan Anderson at The Heritage Foundation, 41% of persons who identify as transgendered persons will attempt suicide at some point in their lives, as compared to 4.6% of the mainstream population.  More than this, persons who have transgender surgery are 19-times more likely to take their own lives.  Added to this are significant mental health issues, which include anxiety, depression, and substance abuse at a level several times higher than our general population.

Obama’s Transgender Policy ignored the reality that placing individuals who are at increased risk of suicide and who harbor significant psychological dysfunctions have no business whatsoever in the most stressful environment imaginable: combat.  This leads a logical person to ask, “What in the hell was Obama thinking?”

Well, if Obama was thinking at all, he was thinking about sacrificing the combat effectiveness of the Armed Forces of the United States to heavily flawed leftist ideology.  It is time to consider a few realities:

  1. Transgender persons require constant post-operative evaluation and hormone treatments.  How is this achieved when our number one priority for all service members is combat readiness and the constant likelihood of immediate deployment to a combat zone?  Related to the medical issue, do leftists intend for the American taxpayer to fund these surgeries, hormonal treatments, and psychotherapies?
  2. All service members are held to the same physical fitness and readiness standards; these standards apply to biological assignments, not self-defined identity.  Men who identify as women cannot be held to the lower standard than other men.
  3. Combat efficiency and unit esprit de corps comes from building and maintaining teamwork, where everyone is expected to perform to a high standard, where everyone participates in grueling field exercises (or actual combat), where everyone is expected to pull their own weight within that team.  People who are not able to do this, who are not willing to do this, are very often shunned by other team members.  Ostracizing service members, for whatever reason, detracts from combat readiness, and — given what we know of transgendered persons, shunning such individuals only worsens their already unhealthy mental condition.
  4. Our military does not discriminate in its treatment of its personnel.  Individual privacy must be respected.  Within the confines of military barracks/quarters, one wonders where leftists intend to house transgender persons so that they can attend to their unique circumstances in privacy.

Secretary James Mattis recently made the decision to suspend Obama’s ludicrous plans while the Department of Defense reviews the short and long-term implications of OTP.   Rethinking OTP is not enough because, if implemented, the OTP will cost the American taxpayer more than $3.7 billion over ten years.

President Trump recently signaled that he is disinclined to maintain OTP.  In my view, this was the proper decision.  However, the president has yet to put his order in writing and the military hierarchy awaits that formal decision.  The military does not operate on the basis of tweets; they require formal written authority.  Hopefully, Mr. Trump will provide this authority in the not-too-distant future.

Meanwhile, leftists are howling at the moon.  None of these people ever served in the military, but common sense should suggest the uniqueness of the military and the lethality of what our combat soldiers do for our country every-single-day.  Social engineering has no place in our Armed Forces.  The sooner Americans demand an end to this war on American culture, the better —for everyone— including gender confused persons.

This brings us back to Congressman Amash, a Republican.  Why is he supporting the Obama Tranny Plan?  The engine of a member of congress is fueled by popular opinion, and on this issue, polls indicate that a large majority of the American people reject the patently absurd progressive notion that a man can be a woman simply because he feels like one.  I think we should evaluate Amash based on who he is and what he believes: he is Palestinian Arab.  Do Palestinian-Arab’s want to maintain a strong, efficient American military?

I think not.

Let me also note that as we waste time and effort on the issue of gender-confused persons, our government is not addressing the tens of thousands of homeless and starving Americans, ignores the plight of thousands of military veterans who are routinely denied proper medical care from combat-related wounds and injuries, and fails to deliver its promises of elder care to pensioners.  I have one final thought: if the Pentagon ultimately approves OTP, it will inspire mutant-gender activists to place greater pressures on idiotic judges and spineless politicians to impose farcical rules on civic groups, schools, universities, and in the workplace.

  1. 2. All service members are held to the same physical fitness and readiness standards; these standards apply to biological assignments, not self-defined identity. Men who identify as women cannot be held to the lower standard than other men.

    Duh! That should settle the matter.

    As for the costs of “transitioning,” they are astronomical! Never ending — because complications ensue and because so much psychological counseling is needed. And even with all that counseling, the few “long term” studies we have indicate that the suicide rate is very high.

    I’ve watched a former student, commissioned at West Point, transition to a woman. So many selfies with pounds of makeup on. Recently, I saw a photo without those pounds of makeup. YE, GODS! “She” looks like a man in drag — a real joke, IMO. Worse, his son was present. His son is about 7 years old. What must that little boy think?

    One last word about DNA…these “women” still have male DNA. DNA is forever.

      You used the expression, “… a real joke.” Yes, you’re right. Now what kind of leadership can A REAL JOKE provide to combat troops? I’ll use the term “It” because I think that is a more appropriate term. Rather than follow such an idiot in combat, IT is more likely to be fragged by one of his own men and can you imagine what fun the enemy would have once having taken IT as a prisoner of war?

  2. Erratum.

    I just checked, and the little boy I mentioned above just turned five years of age. A photo was recently posted to the tranny’s FB page — a photo of the tranny with his little boy on a picnic and sitting with his daddy and another man, who appears to be hetero. The tranny’s date, perhaps?

      Much parental behavior smacks of child abuse; I can’t understand why government, who professes so much concern for our little darlings, haven’t made this an issue. At a minimum, states should hold hearings to determine whether such parental behavior psychologically damages young children.

    As you so skillfully point out the extreme out of balance condition between what is done for tranny’s versus the many people who served with distinction is beyond absurd.

    I think the kids today think they should bend over backwards for anyone perceived to be special while ignoring the millions of hard working normal people. Not doing so would be racist – or something. How much more screwed up can a society get?

    Anyway, I’ve always identified as a billionaire. I wonder who has my Bentley.

      I am in 100% agreement with you, Imp … except for your last statement. The American people aren’t smart enough to deserve the republic because they never understood the caveats handed down to us by our founding fathers. America is no place for stupid people, lazy people, or those with corrupt souls. We do have plenty of those kinds of people living here, but they are all unhappy people, and they have the unique ability to make others as unhappy as they are. I am speaking now about the parasites birthed out by women who raise children to become adult dependencies. Dude, we’re talking serious money here —other people’s money. And we have a ton of other people who walk around with their noses glued to the iPhone, who have NO CLUE about what is going on around them. So, I think that if you are waiting for these people to go to DEFCON One, please don’t hold your breath. It just isn’t going to happen.

    As Mr. Mustang already knows…I suspect we’re going to have to reach a breaking point where we’re challenged on our own soil and let the chips fall where they may.

    I don’t think we’ll pass the test with the military as it stands now. ROE’s, special treatment, exclusions for moslems, trannies, women, black marxists, prayer rugs, prayer timeout, taken out of service to attend mandatory sensitivity classes and a myriad of other social changes that society is facing and they’re expected to conform to.

    The complete decline in readiness began the moment we allowed women in combat roles. Let’s see what the SJW’s and the leftist turds say when the flag draped coffins start being unloaded from the C130’s at Dover AFB.

If we were ever to reach that point, animals in the jungles and forests will have more morality and social structure and adherence too it than we do.
