US Supreme Court Approves Trump’s Ban On Transgenders In The Military

In July of 2017, President Trump first tweeted a statement announcing he was moving forward with a ban on transgenders  from joining the military after consulting with Generals and military experts.  The President stated that transgender troops would no longer be allowed to serve in the military due to the lack of focus under overwhelming situations. He also added that treatment for transgenders are a financial burden due the “tremendous” cost of medications. President Trump reversed this policy after one year of effectiveness which was approved under the previous administration.

 

Secretary of Defense James Mattis released a written statement to the President on February 22, 2018, with concerns about the transgenders who have a mental disorder called Gender Dysphoria. After gathering the data from civil and military medical professionals, including own Penal data, who focus on treating such mental disorder, the Department of Defense (Pentagon) concluded that individuals with Gender Dysphoria are incapable of serving in the military for a number reasons such as mental instability to operate under overwhelming circumstance, high cost of medical expenses, and the time required to be off duty to recover after treatment (36 months). The Department of Defense affirmed that mental health stability is a requirement for all of their service members, including those who are not transgender.

On January 22nd, 2019, the 9th Circuit Supreme Court approved the ban on transgenders from serving in the military. Although the LGBT community fought against the ban, today it will go into effect. With the suicide and depression rate in the transgender community exceeding 42%, according to a 2014 report from The Williams Institute, the military refused to proceed to risk other military members under crucial circumstances. Four out of nine Justices objected the ban, however, the Supreme Court will allow the ban to go forward as lower courts fight to block it.

The Pentagon has always applied specific requirements to be part of the military as General Mattis clarifies below:

“By its very nature, military service requires sacrifice. The men and women who serve
voluntarily accept limitations on their personal liberties – freedom of speech, political activity,
freedom of movement – in order to provide the military lethality and readiness necessary to
ensure American citizens enjoy their personal freedoms to the fullest extent. Further, personal
characteristics, including age, mental acuity, and physical fitness – among others- matter to
field a lethal and ready force.”

Border Wall

Trump Was Right: Democrats Will Obstruct The National Emergency To Prevent Him From Building The Wall

On Friday after President Trump declared a national emergency, Democrats rushed to obstruct the President from building the wall on our southern border, as predicted. Speaker Pelosi made comments such as banning the 2nd Amendment if a Democrat ever got into office because “gun violence is a national emergency.” However, her comment was like that of tyrannical government, which is why we have the 2nd Amendment in the first place. The President is correct to declare a national emergency over border security when we have seen thousands of people in non-stop migrant caravans headed to the United States trying to cross illegally in less than a year through Mexico.

The Democrats, including the Governor of California Gavin Newsom, have launched law suits against the President for using military funding to build the wall. Democrats are calling this declaration a “Fake national emergency” after President Trump said, “I could do the wall over a longer period of time. I didn’t need to do this, but I’d rather do it much faster, ” referring to the wall.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer released a statement calling the national emergency unlawful and adding that all the reasoning that the President presented in order to declare his actions an emergency during his press briefing was a manufactured crisis. Senator Schumer, who during the Obama Administration called for a border wall and spoke against illegal immigration, is now saying that the President’s request for secure borders make America less safe.

In 1907, President Theodore Roosevelt build the fence in our southern border between the United States and Mexico through the Roosevelt Reservation that provided a 60 foot easement along the border for government use. The documents of his bill are still archived in the government website. Not only the President Roosevelt bill available but also the documents showing that the Executive and Legislative branch both agreed to build a wall during the Bush Jr. and Obama Administration where Schumer and Pelosi both were in favor of the border wall. It is unclear why the wall was not build in 100% of the border, but President Trump insists on finishing the project that begin over a century ago.

House Republican Steve Scalise Calls For Speaker Pelosi To Remove Rep. Ilhan Omar From Foreign Affairs Committee For Anti-Semitism

Today, Wednesday afternoon, the Republican House Representatives held a press conference to talk about the budgeting for the border wall that Democrat leaders continue to obstruct. The President requested a minimum of $5.7 billion dollars to fund a steel barrier wall on out southern border, but Democrats denied the request.

List below provided is how the budget will be used for border security:

After the House Representative Scalise brought up how the Democrat party has gone so far left where Republicans had to negotiate to stop Democrats the release of foreign terrorist caught by Ice agents and other border patrol. Rep. Saclise told reporters about the concerns of the Department of Homeland Security, “If we detain terrorist, if we detain felons, that we don’t have to let them go because we run out of beds. We actually had to negotiate that.” In the same subject of DHS, which Democrat Representative Ilhan Omar openly advocates to defund the department, Representative Scalise took the opportunity to side with President Trump to ask Speaker Pelosi to remove Ilhan Omar from the Foreign Affairs Committee.

Full statement from Republican House Representative Steve Scalise on the anti-semitic matter:

“On another front note, we’ve been speaking out against the growing anti-Semitism that we’ve been seeing from some of the Democrats in Congress. We’ve been disappointed that their leadership hasn’t been strong enough in calling that language out. You know, you can see even with Congresswoman Omar in her recent statements. She had to apologize, but as she unequivocally apologized, she actually equivocated in that apology and went after some of the organizations she had criticize before. And so, it’s not a true apology and frankly I don’t think she should be sitting on the House Foreign Affairs Committee getting those classified briefings of some of the very countries like Israel that she’s been speaking out against. And I think that’s a concern. I think Speaker Pelosi ought to remove her from that committee- She hasn’t done so, yet. So we need to see more strong actions by the Democratic leadership against the growing anti-Semitism that we are seeing from their party.”

 

Only a few hours before the Republicans when out to speak to the press, Representative Ilhan Omar retweeted a post were Trevon Timm called the Israelites a “murderous regime.”

 

Representative Scailse previously mentioned a similar statement over Twitter two days prior to this press conference.

Speaker Pelosi Addressed The Anti-Semitic Statements Made By Rep. Ilhan Omar But Fails To Remove Her From Foreign Affairs

Monday afternoon, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued a statement addressing the inappropriate behavior from the Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar. Representative Omar is a Muslim woman originally from Somalia who has constantly engaged in rants criticising the Nation of Israel and siding with Palestine. Over the weekend, the House Representative from Minnesota Ilhan Omar tweeted “AIPAC” (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) was lobbing for American politicians to continue to fund part of the defense for Israel saying “it all about the Benjamins.”

In the Speaker Pelosi statement it does not show any sort of reprecussion other than and “slap on the hand.” The biggest concern for Americans is that Representative Ilhan Omar will continue to be part of the Foreign Affairs despite that fact that the Representative proposed to reduce the sentence on individuals who seek to join the ISIS terrorist organization and later de-fund the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that keeps our nation safe.

An hour after Speaker Pelosi’s released statement regarding the zero tolerance of anti-Semitism in the Democrat party,  Representative Ilhan Omar issued a statement apologizing for her remarks over the weekend with a caption “listening and learning, but standing strong.”

This is not the first nor expected to be the last time Representative Ilhan Omar says anti-Israel and anti-semitic statements since she has done it before in 2012. Representative Omar tweeted out in the part that “Israel has hypnotized the world” and she hope we can see “the evil doings of Israel” with the hastags being pro-Palestine.
