24 Republicans Vote To Preserve Transgender Ideology in Military

The United States Marine Corps is against this but apparently, that doesn’t seem to matter among the Republicans who have sold out and find themselves in the fog which will eventually see them whistling in the wind.

 

That whistling will be heard in the grave yards filled with their lost careers when Republicans replace them with stalwart conservative Republicans who don’t feel compelled to please the Democrats in Congress.

So now you know where your tax dollars will apparently be spent in spite of the fact that the military wants this agenda killed.

“It makes no sense to create soldiers who are unable to fight and win our nation’s wars,” Hartzler said during debate on the bill, according to the Associated Press.

“Figure out whether you’re man or a woman before you join,” Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter of California said. “U.S. taxpayers shouldn’t have to foot the bill.”

 

 

Twenty-four Republicans banded together on Thursday to defeat an amendment which would have ended former President Barack Obama’s 2016 policy of funding “gender-reassignment” surgery for soldiers who want to live as members of the opposite sex.

The amendment to the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act was offered by Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R, Mo.).

It would have prohibited the use of taxpayer dollars to pay for the non-military medical task of converting healthy soldiers into “transgender” soldiers who face lifelong dependence on hormones and surgery.

 

 

The July 13 vote saw Democrats vote in lockstep to defeat the amendment, despite the national unpopularity of the transgender ideology. They were joined by 24 Republicans who broke with their party to assist the Democrats to defeat the amendment, without any visible objections by the GOP’s business-focused leadership.

The offer of free medical care to gender-confused soldiers is part of the broader effort by Obama to have the Pentagon affirm and implement the transgender ideology, which says that people can have a “gender” different from their biological sex.

The ideology also says that a person’s legal sex is defined by their self-assessed gender — not by their biology and that other Americans must agree with people who say they are a member of the opposite sex.

See the entire article below.

 

Many Republicans praised the Hartzler amendment and criticized the Obama transgender policy.

Amendment supporters say the Pentagon’s financial bill for accepting transgender claims could reach $3.7 billion over the next ten years.

So far, the military’s most famous transsexual soldier is Private Bradley Manning, who copied and released 90,000 military reports from Iraq and Afghanistan. He was released from jail in early 2017 after Obama reduced his jail sentence. Manning has since changed his name to Chelsea Manning.

Democrats embrace the transgender ideology and called the GOP amendment “bigoted” for not saying men can be women.

Rep. Jared Polis (D, CO) insisted the amendment would hurt the military. “It would have a negative impact on morale, a negative impact on retention and move us away from the merit-based system which we now have, where we have one set of rules applied to everybody,” he said.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D, CA) slammed Republicans for attempting to “rip away” health care for soldiers. “Republicans should be ashamed: instead of protecting the men and women who risk their lives to defend our freedoms, they are fighting to rip away the health care of thousands of brave service members,” Pelosi said in hyperbolically. “This cowardly Republican amendment targeting transgender men and women in uniform effectively bans these patriotic Americans from serving their country.”

But the Center for Military Readiness, a policy group located in Michigan, criticized the current transgender policy, calling it “absurd and sometimes bizarre plans incorporated in Obama Administration transgender mandates.”

In a statement, the group also said that the policies are dangerous. “Social experiments with the lives of people who deserve better will create many problems that detract from impacts on morale and readiness.”

The Republicans who support the transgender ideology are mostly social liberals (click “See More” in the Facebook post to view the list):

 Obama’s Secretary of Defense, Ash Carter, created the problem of having to pay for the medical needs of transsexual soldiers by repealing the ban on transgenders serving openly in the military in 2016.

However, the plan is apparently very unpopular among top leaders and the rank-and-file, partly because it would female soldiers to share rooms and showers with biological men who have been classified by the military as women.

If the military agrees to establish the transgender ideology, the pro-transgender campaign will be boosted in the nation’s courtrooms, capitols, and classrooms, said Austen Ruse, president of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute. “Every transgender activist can point to the military to say, ‘They’ve done, it, so we should do it… in grade schools, high schools, colleges, everywhere,” he added.

The progressive push to bend Americans’ attitudes and their male-and-female civic society around the idea of “gender” has already attacked and cracked popular social rules for how Americans handle the useful differences between complementary and equal men and women.

These pro-gender claims have an impact on different-sex bathrooms, shelters for battered womensports leagues for girlshiking groups for boysK-12 curriculauniversity speech codesreligious freedomsfree speech, the social status of womenparents’ rights in child rearing, practices to help teenagers, women’s expectations of beautyculture and civic societyscientific researchprison safetycivic ceremoniesschool rules, men’s sense of masculinitylaw enforcement, and children’s sexual privacy.

A study of the 2010 census showed that roughly 1-in-2,400 adults had changed their name from one sex to the other sex.

Polls show that strong majority of ordinary Americans oppose the transgender claims, they want sexual privacy in bathrooms and shower rooms — especially in K-12 schools. Even as Americans want to keep their sexual privacy, most are also willing to be polite and friendly to the very few “transgender” people who wish to live as members of the other sex.

*UPDATE*  Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL), one of the 24 Republicans who voted against the amendment, went to the House floor afterward–per the congressional record–to announce he had mistakenly voted against the amendment. He says he meant to vote for it. His vote flipping back still would not have changed the outcome of the vote, which failed 209-214.

Note: An earlier version of this story included an embedded tweet with an inaccurate list of GOP members who voted against this amendment. We’ve replaced that tweet with the accurate list of members via a Facebook post from Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC). We regret the error.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

    Before everybody gets on their 1950s Moral High Horse (who besides a few Baptists really cares?), stop to consider the scientific reasons why this is not only inevitable, but is only going to INCREASE, just follow the goddamned money:

    Human males in this country are HEAVILY dosed with estrogen (bovine is identical to human estrogen) from the time their in their cradles.

    Too much estrogen in little girls (who produce their own) will ALWAYS result in their counter-producing (yes, girls DO make it as well) testosterone. And guess what?

    It seems Carnation and Altadena are doing this deliberately. This whole mess lies en4tirely on their shoulders.

  2. Do you think it’s conceivable that so many of those confused people join the military so it would pick up the tab for their sex change?
    I am thrilled to see that there are some people with BALLS enough to stand up to what’s right. This country has been taking over by a bunch of PC freaks and unless the brakes are put on them there will be no end to their devious Acts.
    Read today’s post on the Goomba Gazette on the subject of Teen Vogue magazine writing that despicable article about anal sex for teenagers. It is one of the Prime examples of why our country is in such Dire Straits.

      Anybody who volunteers to get their shit blown away (such as I did between 1974 and 1997) is a superior person to any pantywaist who sits by the side of the road quoting Leviticus and Deuteronomy.

      The fact that the American food industry hyper- pumps little boys full of female hormones (you are ONLY what your blood chemistry pre-determines what you shall be and how you act) is a crime. No amount of praying is going to change the way their/your body chemistry has reconfigured their/your brains.

      Estrogen pre-programs the brain for a desire to be penetrated. Boys don’t have vaginas, so they use the next available orifice.

      Males have become entity. Here’s where the PC (fostered by testosterone-driven females in our Brave New World), becoming little more than sperm donors.

      So don’t complain to me. Try talking to the Dairy Association (you DID follow those links above – right?)

        Apologies on the fourth paragraph. Computer glitch scrambled it. Should have read:

        “Males have become a non-entity. Here’s where the PC dialogue (there fostered by a few testosterone-driven females in our Brave New World) downplays the competitive males, who are seen as little more worth than being sperm donors.”
