    The Pentagon Just Moved To Delay Obama’s Transgender Policy Roll-Out

    Secretary of Defense, General James Mattis, officially froze an Obama-era policy to recruit transgender soldiers in 2017, and polls are suggesting it’s a popular move amongst Americans.

    Two-thirds of swing voters agree the Pentagon should halt plans to recruit transgenders.

    Check it out (per Breitbart):
    Since becoming the Secretary of Defense, I have emphasized that the Department of Defense must measure each policy decision against one critical standard: will the decision affect the readiness and lethality of the force? Put another way, how will the decision affect the ability of America’s military to defend the nation? It is against this standard that I provide the following guidance on the way forward in accessing transgender individuals into the military Services.

    It’s a fact we know too well at this point that the Obama administration thrust social policy onto the Pentagon in a way that distracted heavily from the U.S. military’s mission.

    Here’s more:
    Throughout 2016, Obama used his power as president to push schools and other institutions to support the claim by transgender activists that people have a hidden “gender identity” which is independent of their sex and biology. These advocates also say that a person’s sex is determined by their “gender identity,” not their male-or-female body. In turn, the advocates demand that the federal government force Americans to accept the sex-switching “gender identity” claims made by each person, regardless of scientific data about genetics, biology and the variety of normal behavior and appearances shown by normal women and men.

    Naturally, transgender activists are livid. They released a statement that said, essentially, disallowing transgenders to openly serve in the military will “compromise military readiness.”

    I find this statement particularly rich in light of the two parties at hand.

    We’ve got James Mattis, who’s dedicated his entire life to the study and art of war, saying sexually-confused Americans present a distraction within the context of the military.

    And we’ve got sexually-confused Americans claiming he doesn’t know what it takes to ready the military for war.

    This entire exchange is just ridiculous.

    And it’s impossible to see how the requirements of Obama’s policy wouldn’t further increase the “distraction,” if you will:
    Obama’s proposal is widely opposed, in part, because it would require soldiers to share bathrooms and shower facilities with people of the opposite sex, and would require the U.S. military pay for the expensive procedures — such as hormones and perhaps surgery — used by people trying to live as members of the opposite sex.

    The poll lays it out pretty well:
    The cross-tabs, however, showed that GOP supporters split 60 percent for a delay and 23 percent opposition to a delay. Democrats split 33 percent for a delay and 44 percent opposition to a delay.

    Importantly, 52 percent of the swing-voting independents back a delay, while only 25 percent oppose a delay — and 23 percent declined to comment. That is a two-to-one preference among swing-voters for delay, and most of the no-comment voters likely favor a delay also.

    Among self-described conservatives, 64 percent want a delay, while only 22 percent oppose a delay. Self-described “moderates” split 42 percent for a delay, 35 percent opposed a delay.

    Naturally, Democrats have taken up this mission—which, to be honest, should thrill conservatives in some sense.

    The Democratic party has moved farther and farther away from real legislative issues and devoted its focus primarily to the far left’s social agenda.

    And reality is simple: they cannot win elections this way.
