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 1st.
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.”
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 sex change operations? Not surprisingly, that wasn't foremost on their mind. Here is the actual text:
The Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution provides, "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 compensation."
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 hard-core leftists that they are creating imaginary rights as easily as they ignore actual ones they don't like, like the Second Amendment.
Here are some interesting facts.
1) During most of the Obama administration, it wasn't legal for transvestites to join the military. Right before Obama stepped out the door, he issued an executive order saying that military should permit transvestites, but they should only start admitting them 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 only discovered 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 countries 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... and men who dress up as women. These are not what the law calls "protected classes", like race or religion. There is no prohibition on discriminating based on these characteristics. In fact, from a public policy standpoint, one would hope the governent would discriminate 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 only end in tragedy.
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 of it. I think when the executive branch kotows 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 ridiculous.

Which Harvey Weinstein movie title best describes Harvey Weinstein situation?
Harvey Weinstein is in the process of being arrested for multiple sex crimes. Just remember, everyone is innocent until proven guilty! So I can't say that I think Harvey Weinstein is extremely, extremely guilty of multiple sex crimes. It would not be appropriate.
Starbucks' new homeless policy doesn't pass the smell test
When Starbucks announced that anyone could sit in their cafes without buying anything, everyone realized that this was an open invitation to the homeless... except, incredibly, the senior management at Starbucks. Now Starbucks has amended its new policy to say that while everyone is welcome at Starbucks, even if they don't buy anything, that customers are not allowed to sleep or take narcotics in Starbucks cafes.
Trump demands NASA stop wasting money on the international space station
President Trump plans to cut off funding to the international space station by 2025. Many people do not even know there is an international space station, because it is so rarely in the news, but it has cost more than $100 billion dollars to build and support.
What follows is a complete list of the most important discoveries of the space station over the past 20 years:
Starbucks decides to turn its cafes into homeless shelters
When people go into a Starbucks, often the first thing they smell is roasting coffee. That's about to change. Starbucks, stung by phony charges of racism when two black men were arrested for camping out in a Starbucks without making a purchase, has changed its official policies.
China using conversion therapy to turn radical muslims into happy communists
Is being a radical Islamist something you are born with, or a disease that can be cured? China is betting on the latter, which is why it sends radical muslims to brainwashing camps to wash away all their "Muslimness"... and turn them into happy communists!
If you see something, say something (unless they're black)
There has been a spate of articles recently about white people calling the police against black people who were apparently doing nothing wrong, like sleeping in a common room in Yale, urinating in Starbucks, shopping at Nordstrom Rack, and playing on a golf course.

Star Wars' Lando Calrissian is now officially attracted to women, men, and droids
The Star Wars character Lando Calrissian, who started his existence as a token minority in The Empire Strikes Back when people complained to George Lucas about the lack of black people in Star Wars, has now become a minority of a different kind: a pansexual. That means he's attracted to every kind of man, women, and object in the known universe.
Conservatives should support Net Neutrality
Conservatives have a knee-jerk dislike for government regulation. And most times, they're right. A free market system is impaired rather than enhanced by rules imposed by politics.
"Palestinians" sacrificing babies to score PR points
Just when you think the so-called Palestinians (Arabs living in Gaza and Judea and Samaria) can't go any lower, they manage to outdo themselves with utter vileness, sacrificing babies for their cause. For weeks Gazans have attempted to storm the border with Israel. They say they want to return to their "ancestral homes", even though most of them have been born in Gaza. What they really mean is that they want to destroy Israel and drive the Jews into the sea.
Alaska extremely worried that climate change will bring warmer temperatures
What's the very worst thing you can imagine happening to Alaska? If you're a liberal, you fear warm weather! That's right, the liberals who run Alaska (the governor is a "former Republican" and the Lt. Governor is a "current Democrat"), are worried that Alaska, with its subzero temperatures, may be getting warmer.

Millions of Britons inspired by Meghan Markle's caucasian heritage
Prince Harry has gone legit! Gone are his bad-boy Nazi-uniform wearing days; he's now settling down and becoming respectable, by marrying Meghan Markle. Markle, who is half black, has generated a storm of publicity about her dual heritage. Hundreds if not thousands of articles have been written about how important her part-blackness is, not only to people in Britain, but to many people throughout the world.
Sean Hannity accused of repeatedly evicting tenants who paid no rent
The great things about liberals is that even though most have never run a business, they all know exactly how businesses should be run. It's as if all those courses they took at Amherst or Yale in Women's Studies, Art History, and Neo-Colonialism gave them an intuitive sense for market forces, and exactly how much businesses should pay employees, exactly how much taxes businesses should pay, and how to run every aspect of their companies.
Look how the liberal drug culture has destroyed Eureka, California
In normal circumstances, Eureka, California, would be a paradise. It's situated in northern California on the Pacific Coast and is simply beautiful, sandwiched between rugged redwood forests and an implacable open sea. The weather is perfect, constantly between 50 and 75 degrees year around. It's isolated from other major cities, but some find value in the quiet of a more secluded lifestyle.
Did John McCain's experience in captivity ruin his judgment?
President Trump notoriously once said of John McCain, "He’s not a war hero, I like people who weren’t captured." Trump seemed to be saying, inartfully, that McCain played on sympathy of his experience as a POW of the North Vietnamese to catapult himself, inappropriately, into the US Senate.
Libs demand citizenship test for political speech, but not for voting
Liberals are the first to reject the idea that voters should have to prove their citizenship or even their identity when they come to vote. They say it will lead to voter suppression. They say it will confuse blacks and Hispanics, who liberals constantly maintain have the timidity of jack rabbits and the intellectual fortitudes of five year olds.
Guess what 44 million people want to see a black man do on Youtube
Donald Glover is enjoying his five minutes of fame. The actor/writer/rapper, gaining national attention for playing Lando Calrissian in the upcoming "Solo" Star Wars film, released a rap music video where he portrayed black people as being violent, impulsive, animalistic, and victims of America and the "gun culture", all at the same time. Glover's video, entitled "This is America", which has gotten over 44 million views on Youtube as of this writing, features a topless Glover dancing to horrendously bad music with other black people while, from time to time, murdering his fellow dancers with different kinds of firearms.
"White racism" allegedly causing minorities to catch Gonorrhea
Studies have shown that minorities have much higher incidence of Gonorrhea and Clamydia than white people. Whenever there is a racial disparity in anything, whether it is income, housing, or test scores, white racism is to blame. Therefore it is no surprise that the LA Times is blaming the "Gonorrhea gap" on white racism.
Florida Senate race features two candidates who support amnesty, Obamacare, gun control
It's always good to have a choice. Florida voters will have one, in the form of Governor Rick Scott, who is running for the Senate against Democrat Bill Nelson. Both support Obamacare, gun control, and amnesty for illegal aliens.
Trump deploying token border force to fool conservative supporters
When President Trump said he was deploying the military to our southern border, I thought, "Finally!" Congress has blocked Trump's attempts to build a border wall or hire more border guards, but President Trump has found a unilateral action he can take to finally secure the border!
Widespread sex addiction is worsening depression among gay men
Vox, of all places, has exposed the deep psychological problems that gay men are having from all too frequent casual sex. The article, written by a homosexual psychiatrist, claims that the "overuse" of the casual gay sex app "Grindr" is making gay men depressed, and that up to 50% of gay men suffer from clinical depression.
Surge of illegal border crossings corresponds with Trump's mass amnesty offer
There has been a surge of illegal aliens crossing our southern border. A caravan of over 1000 illegals from Central America are trying to enter the country on Easter alone. Breitbart, perhaps one of the strongest supporters of President Trump in the media, finds a direct correlation between the time Trump offered amnesty to 1.8 million illegal aliens and the increasing surge across the border.
Trump's surrender to Dems could cause impeachment, primary challenge
President Trump's decision to sign the spending bill which funds nearly all the Democrat's priorities but gives nothing for border security or reducing domestic spending has disheartened many of his supporters. Even his base on sites like Breitbart are turning against the President, in view of many of the critical comments there. Some people like Ann Coulter think that Trump is depressing his own base, which could reduce GOP turnout in the 2018 Congressional elections and hand the House of Representatives to the Democrats.
Trump embarrasses himself by issuing veto threat and then signing spending bill
On Friday morning President Trump, upset that the spending bill winding its way through Congress did not have money for his border wall or amnesty for children of illegal aliens, threatened to veto the bill.
