Former President Barack Obama was perfectly fine paying for traitors gender reassignment surgery and to accept them in our military.
On May 8, Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work ordered heads of the armed forces to gauge the military’s “readiness to begin accepting transgender applicants on July 1, 2017.”
Secretary of Defense James Mattis has now put that initiative on hold.
“The personnel policies of this Department are designed to enhance the warfighting readiness and lethality of the force that protects our country,” Work wrote in the memo according to USA Today.
“We do not intend to reconsider prior decisions unless they cause readiness problems that could lessen our ability to fight, survive and win on the battlefield.”
Conservative Tribune reports:
Everything after the word “unless” is what we want to pay attention to here. It opens the door for high-ranking officers to make arguments against the policy change in the name of bettering the military’s capability to perform effectively.
The assessments Work ordered were due back by May 31, and here we are in June with what Military Times is calling an “indefinite delay.”
According to Military Times, the move is on hold “as senior leaders within each of the services voice lingering concerns about the Obama-era policy intended to end discrimination but dismissed by critics as social experimentation.”
Hopefully they can get rid of this rule all together. Our military does not need to be responsible for paying for gender reassignment surgeries. There is nothing essential about these surgeries and they are a complete drain on the taxpayers.
