Somewhere, Barack Obama is absolutely FUMING.
During his eight years in office, he made plenty of glaring mistakes, the worst of which involve massive corruption and scandal.
And of course, he always toed the politically correct line, the one that is more sacred to “progressives” than anything else on earth.
But the Obama-era rules and regulations have been crumbling since Donald Trump took office, which true Patriots love to see. It’s just another element of Trump’s “Drain the Swamp” mantra.
The Trump administration has dealt blow after blow to Obama’s legacy and now, another major strike.
General James “Mad Dog” Mattis is getting in the way of an Obama mandate that allowed transgender volunteers to serve in the military.
From Conservative Tribune:
“An Obama-era mandate to allow transgender volunteers to serve in the military beginning this summer has been delayed indefinitely as senior military personnel from multiple branches of the armed forces continue to hold serious reservations, according to news reports.
On May 8, a memo from Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work ordered heads of the armed services to gauge the military’s ‘readiness to begin accepting transgender applicants on July 1, 2017,’ according to USA Today.
However, that memo had some language in it that seems to open the door for criticism of the policy, which may very well have precipitated this rollback by Secretary of Defense James Mattis.”
The memo in question said the military doesn’t “intend to reconsider prior decisions unless they cause readiness problems that could lessen our ability to fight, survive and win on the battlefield.”

Well, that “unless” part is key because this was supposed to have been done by May 31, and now we’re hearing the Obama “Transgender Troop” plan is on an “indefinite delay.”
According to Military Times, the delay is due to one thing:
“…senior leaders within each of the services voice lingering concerns about the Obama-era policy intended to end discrimination but dismissed by critics as social experimentation.”
We have to be able to fight our enemies, plain and simple. And if political correctness gets in the way of saving lives, we have only ourselves to blame.
Mattis and Co. will NOT let that happen.
