Appeals court orders military to recruit from the mentally ill
A Federal Court of Appeals has ordered
the armed forces to begin recruiting so-called "Transgendered"
individuals starting January 1.
The ruling was another legal blow for
the president, who surprised military leaders when he announced in July in a
series of tweets that the U.S. government "will not accept or allow
transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military."
Meet the former general
His order reversed an Obama-era
policy allowing transgender people to serve openly and receive funding for
sex-reassignment surgery. That order was promptly challenged in federal court
by active-duty transgender service members who say it violates their Fifth
Amendment rights to equal protection.
At this point you may be asking, what
is the Fifth Amendment? Did the Founding Fathers create the Fifth
Amendment to protect the right of mentally ill people to join the military and
get free surgery to pretend to change their sex? Not surprisingly, that
wasn't foremost on their minds. Here is the actual text:
No person shall be held to answer for
a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment
of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the
militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any
person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or
limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against
himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of
law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just
The Fifth Amendment basically talks
about giving people due process when they are charged with a crime and
protection against taking of private property. What does that have to do with
mentally ill people joining the military?
The answer: absolutely nothing.
But the judiciary is so riddled with
hardcore leftists that they are creating imaginary rights as easily as they
ignore actual ones they don't like, like the ones protected by the Second
Here are some interesting facts.
Heading to a uniform optional base
1) During most of the Obama
administration, it wasn't legal for transvestites to join the military.
Right before President Obama stepped out the door, he issued an executive
order saying the military should permit transvestites but should start
admitting them only after he had left office. Perhaps Obama was
rightly worried about the disruption that would be caused by a whole platoon of
Mary Poppinses or Corporal Klingers and didn't want to take the heat when his
efforts at social engineering in the military went bad.
2) Before Obama issued this executive
order, transvestites didn't have the right to join the military. And yet
until that time, not a single court found the "right" for
cross-dressers to join the military. This "right" was
discovered only after Obama legalized it, and his ability to legalize it,
without an act of Congress, was questionable at best.
3) This "right" is a lot
more than just allowing cross-dressers to join the military. It is a way
for them to get free surgery and hormones so they can "Dr.
Frankenstein" themselves at taxpayer expense.
Our country has laws against racial
discrimination. Our country also has laws against gender discrimination.
But we have no federal laws against discrimination involving people with
red hair, people who wear bandanas, people who ride skateboards, people who eat
vanilla ice cream...or men who dress up as women. These are not what the
law calls "protected classes," as with race or religion. There
is no prohibition on discriminating based on these characteristics. In
fact, from a public policy standpoint, one would hope the government
discriminates against the "transgendered" because they are severely
mentally ill. Liberals don't want the mentally ill to have guns, but they
are full-throated in their demands for the "transgendered" to be
given "military-style" assault weapons. This can end only in
Combat training takes a different tack
The Trump administration must now
plead with the Supreme Court if it wants to fight this further. But if
the president were gutsy, he would announce that he is going to disregard this
appeals court decision because it is so blatantly unconstitutional on the face
I think when the executive branch
kowtows to every unreasonable decision a court makes, it only encourages courts
to do more of the same. Courts are given so much deference that they
effectively have unlimited power. It would be refreshing if the president
stood up to them, in a case that most people would immediately recognize as
