Judge Tells Trump to Stand Down on Military’s ‘Transgender’ Mandate

Federal Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly turned down the Trump administration’s request for more time to evaluate the military’s “transgender” issue and instead is insisting that the Defense Department continue Obama’s social experiment by opening its doors to “transgenders” beginning January 1.

Not only is Kollar-Kotelly’s latest move going to be unpopular with the 60 percent of active-duty military personnel who hold a negative opinion about individuals who are confused about their sex serving openly in the military, but the decision could also cost taxpayers $3.7 billion.

Says Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins, “The president’s primary task is protecting Americans. Yet now we’re watching activist courts do everything from curb the executive branch’s power to telling the commander-in-chief how to run the military.”

Justice Department officials have noted their disagreement with the decision and are evaluating the department’s next steps.

President Trump Puts Christ Back in Christmas at the White House

President Trump is putting Christ back into Christmas this year with the official White House card saying “Merry Christmas” instead of the more politically correct “Happy Holidays” or “Season’s Greetings” and a larger-than-life traditional nativity featuring the Baby Jesus wearing a crown.

“You go to department stores, and they’ll say ‘Happy New Year,’ and they’ll say other things,” said Trump at this year’s Family Research Council Values Voter Summit. “Well, guess what? We’re saying Merry Christmas again.”

Trump Acknowledges God in Thanksgiving Proclamation

President Donald Trump’s Thanksgiving Proclamation pays tribute not only to America’s heroes who provided swift action and compassion in the wake of some recent disasters and violent attacks but also to God, a refreshing change from some of the less God-centered proclamations from recent years.

“On Thanksgiving Day, as we have for nearly four centuries, Americans give thanks to Almighty God for our abundant blessings,” said Trump . . . . “As one people, we seek God’s protection, guidance, and wisdom, as we stand humbled by the abundance of our great Nation and the blessings of freedom, family, and faith. . . . I encourage all Americans to gather, in homes and places of worship, to offer a prayer of thanks to God for our many blessings.”

Liberal Judge Thwarts Trump’s ‘Transgender’ Military Mandate

Through a temporary injunction Monday, U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly prevented President Trump’s July executive order concerning “transgenders” in the military from moving forward. Judge Kollar-Kotelly tried to argue for some “right” to military entrance by suggesting that “transgenders” are a type of protected class while acknowledging that she “is aware of no binding precedent on this issue.”

But FRC’s Tony Perkins said, “An unelected U.S. district court judge has absolutely no authority to create a special legal category for anyone!” He further added, “The goal [of the military] isn’t to advance ‘tolerance’ or help people on the path to self-actualization. It’s to fight and win wars. And that mission is severely compromised when activist courts try to force the military into accepting unstable recruits in the name of ‘fairness.’”

Citizens should recall that as commander-in-chief, the president has wide discretion in ensuring the military operates in a way that best protects the country. The Justice Department is weighing options on how to proceed.

Trump Pulls United States Out of Leftist UN Organization

President Trump is pulling America out of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), a pro-LGBT and pro-abortion organization. In the past, UNESCO supported teaching children about tolerance, sexual orientation, acceptance of homosexuality, masturbation, and abortion through the school system. State Department Spokesman Heather Nauert explained that the United States will “remain engaged with UNESCO as a non-member observer state in order to contribute U.S. views, perspectives, and expertise on some of the important issues undertaken by the organization.” Those important issues include “the protection of world heritage, advocating for press freedoms, and promoting scientific collaboration and education.” The United States’ withdrawal from UNESCO will take effect on December 31, 2018.
