One of the many unethical things that Barack Obama did was to push to allow transgender people to serve in the military. He already ruined the military (according to some of my sources) by allowing homosexuals to serve. At the request of top military brass, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis extended the deadline for Obama’s transgender service by another six months. Mattis and Pentagon officials want to have time to assess the impact of allowing transgenders to serve before they enact Obama’s obamination.
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has delayed a plan approved by the Obama administration a year ago to begin allowing transgender recruits to join the U.S. military, providing the Joint Chiefs of Staff with a six-month reprieve that they requested, the Pentagon said Friday night.
The decision was made on the eve of a deadline set a year ago by then-Defense Secretary Ash Carter. The services can now delay processing transgender recruits until Jan. 1, following another review of accession plans and providing information about how doing so will affect the military and its lethality, Mattis said in a memo. Details about that review must be provided back to Mattis by Dec. 1.
The defense secretary said in the memo that the delay “in no way presupposes an outcome,” but after consulting with top generals and other senior defense officials, he determined more time is needed before making a decision. He is confident, he said, that the Defense Department will continue to treat all service members with dignity and respect…
My sources in the military have told me that the allowance of openly gay and lesbian people to serve in the military has had a larger negative impact than the public is being told. When Obama forced that decision on the military, a number of career military personnel resigned, some doing so just short of their 20-years for retirement, because they knew the problems it would cause. Sources have told me that it weakened the morale of the military, among other negative impacts. Hopefully, Mattis and others will rescind the order to allow transgenders to serve before any more harm to the military is done.
