GUESS AGAIN. The US Military’s top directive in a report this past Wednesday had nothing to do with China, Iran, the resurgence of Al-Qaeda and ISIS, or even the illegal alien invasion on our Southern Border.
Gateway Pundit (h/t nita) According to the Daily Caller: Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said Wednesday the Department of Defense (DOD) will prioritize lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex people in its decision-making processes, according to the top item in an email from the Navy and Marine Corps Daily Media Report.
“On February 4, 2021, the President issued a memorandum directing all U.S. departments and agencies that engage abroad or are involved in foreign aid, assistance, and development programs to undertake a number of actions related to promoting and protecting the human rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex (LGBTQI+) persons,” the email states.
This was the first objective in the military’s list of priorities:
In just two months, the illegitimate Biden Regime is tearing apart the Department of Defense and the morale President Trump brought back to the military in four short years. The military loved President Trump and now they report to a senile old man who stole their votes and the election and is now pushing LGBTQ rights around the world.
Military.com Joe Biden signed an executive order Monday lifting a Trump administration policy that largely banned transgender individuals from joining the U.S. military and prevented service members from transitioning while in uniform.
The executive order overturns a March 2018 memorandum issued by President Donald Trump that restricted military service for transgender individuals, and immediately halts any current involuntary separations, discharges or denials of reenlistment over gender identity concerns.
The order would also allow for military personnel to receive FREE gender reassignment surgeries funded by American taxpayers.
In 2018, then-Defense Secretary Jim Mattis published a policy that allowed currently serving transgender individuals to remain in the military but barred those who had not transitioned from changing gender. The policy also prevented those diagnosed with gender dysphoria — a mental health condition diagnosed in some transgender individuals that is characterized by acute stress and anxiety over their gender identity — from serving or joining the military.
At the time, Defense Department officials cited the medical costs of treating transgender individuals and the impact they might have on unit cohesion.
Conservative groups said they will continue to object to a policy that allows those with gender dysphoria to serve. “By overturning the current policy on service by transgender individuals with gender dysphoria, the administration is signaling it favors political correctness over military readiness. It is unfortunate that the commander in chief is signaling that he is more interested in social-engineering than safeguarding the health and well-being of American service members,” said retired Army Lt. Gen. Tom Spoehr, director of the Heritage Foundation’s Center for National Defense.
