Another federal judge has put the kibosh on President Trump’s ordered ban on transgenders in the military with a ruling that declares that transgender service members are “already suffering harmful consequences” as a result of the president’s decision. In his ruling on Tuesday, U.S. District Court Judge Marvin Garbis joined a Washington DC court that previously blocked the administration’s ban on the military recruitment of transgender individuals. However, Garbis’s injunction goes further in that it also blocks Trump from denying transgender servicemen and women from obtaining certain types of medical care on the taxpayer dime.
Garbis wrote that the transgender troops fighting the ban have “demonstrated that they are already suffering harmful consequences such as the cancellation and postponements of surgeries, the stigma of being set apart as inherently unfit, facing the prospect of discharge and inability to commission as an officer, the inability to move forward with long-term medical plans, and the threat to their prospects of obtaining long-term assignments.”
“A capricious, arbitrary, and unqualified tweet of new policy does not trump the methodical and systematic review by military stakeholders qualified to understand the ramifications of policy changes,” wrote Garbis.
Right, this guy sounds totally unbiased.
Furthermore, it is absurd to say that transgender individuals have rights under the equal protection clause of the Constitution. How far does it stretch? This is a made-up, invented category of psychological nuttiness, being given the veneer of respectability by easily-influenced soft-science hoaxers and the LGBT Army, which knows no bounds.
The fact remains – and will always remain – that Trump did nothing more or less than restore the rule that had been in place for years and years before Obama came along with his ridiculous sexual agenda and tried to turn the military into a grand social experiment. It is nothing short of ludicrous for these courts to suddenly decide that transgender people have some sort of imagined right to serve in the military, much LESS the right to demand that United States taxpayers pay for their surgeries and hormones. If this is the case, then we are really through the looking glass and into the great beyond.
Alas, this is the kind of crap that happens when you allow Democrats to take over government for any substantial period of time. It’s so much easier to stop this stuff than it is to roll it back after it’s done. A lesson Republicans seem to need to learn over and over and over again.
