Barack Obama

A retired general is adding his voice to the growing consensus of military leaders who oppose transsexual soldiers serving in the military.

Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn criticized President Barack Obama's decision to allow mentally ill men and women with gender disorders to serve openly in the armed forces.

"Too often, way too often, our troops are instead are distracted by trivial matters, the general said at the Republican National Convention in Ohio on Wednesday. “My God, war is not about bathrooms. War is not about political correctness or words that are meaningless.

The military's new guidelines allows “extended leave” for those soldiers who were diagnosed with gender dysphoria at least 18 months earlier to "transition" to their stereotypical image of the opposite sex.

The policy is expected to cost the military over $4 million per year -- money that critics argue should go to treat veterans.

“Transsexuals suffer from more psychiatric pathologies than the general population, and active suicide ideation and major depression episodes occur more frequently within this group,” said retired Army officer Robert Maginnis.

“Hiring a medical staff to provide ongoing treatment for these people robs precious money better used for treating our war wounded,” he said, adding that the policy is “the worst waste of Defense dollars ever.”

House Armed Services Committee Chairman Mac Thornberry said allowing transsexuals extended leave to mutilate their bodies undermines effectiveness.

“At least some number of transgender people require hormone therapy, which requires regular lab tests and also requires refrigeration,” Thornberry told the Heritage Foundation. “If you have those requirements, whatever your situation, you have been non-deployable.”

Current military policy bans diabetics and people with mental disabilities from serving in the armed forces because a certain level of physical fitness and mental readiness is required for national defense.

"I support gay marriage," wrote retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters. "But my tolerance ends sharply when it comes to national defense. Anything that reduces our ability to defend our country and its citizens plunges beyond the limits of my tolerance."

"Why is Obama doing this?” he asked. “Because he can. He and his comrades in the White House ... employ social engineering to change a country they resent and to neuter the military they distrust. And the president, as commander in chief, can order the military to do what he desires."

“Through vicious social engineering, the president is disarming freedom’s best hope," he wrote.

    All that BS Trump was spouting last night and this is the first post we get? Okay. Morning everyone!

  • LibraGirlonly

    Obama has done some things for the African American community too. You can research that. I kinda agree with the guy and it's just weird to me.

  • That’s Interesting

    I don't understand this. The military is not the place for someone with those kinds of issues. Why would they even want to go? Nobody has time to try to accommodate them. They want free hormones and gender reassignment at the cost of the government. That's honestly the only thing I can think of. This is beyond dumb.

  • Sandra Dee Spidey

    Trump evoked Hitler for me last night. I felt threatened when he started talking about bringing back law and order. More black men will die under a Trump presidency. I'm scared and horrified.

  • Angela

    "Whatchu call me??"????

  • LibraGirlonly

    I don't think Trump will be president but let's not leave it to chance. We need to get out and vote. Make sure family members are registered to vote, give someone a ride to the polls if needed, let's do our part and if you ask me we need to turn out in bigger numbers then we did when Obama was up for office. They are registering Muslims by the droves and yes I agree it's scary.

  • goat

    Noap,
    1st. We(as black people) don't have the economic base to play the political game, all we got is a vote. That's cool, but a politician cares more about money.
    2nd. I don't think the powers that be would allow him to do anything for the black community specifically even if he wanted to.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    Man I aint got time for this. Its vacation eve for me. TUH. Who CARES?

  • Saphistication

    President Obama has definitely changed the ways of the world, especially for the LGBT community. If he put a tenth of that energy in to race relations and women's issues, he would have a better legacy. SMH

    Race relations been around since the beginning of time and will be around until we die. We have a lot of women groups that suppose to also be looking out for women issues and they do nothing. Where were NOW and the black woman groups to fight for that poor little black girl who got snatched out of her chair by the cop. Everyone remained silent. He can't do it alone.

    That picture got me rolling. Our so-called real men are playing video games all day,wearing dresses, getting their nails/hur did so they ain't got time to go to the military to fight. A lot of trans people are joining the military so that they can get the operation done for free with our tax dollars.

    My thoughts exactly. Great for them, but it's 2016 and it feels like we've time traveled back into the 60's(race wise). You'd think under a black pres, things would've improved.

    For those who didn't see this, it is a wake up call and very informative clip for blacks. There are some things I am slightly in disagreement with, and although I do not dislike Obama, I felt his hands were tied to plenty which caused him not to do anything for the people. This brother talks about how he has done more for all the other minority groups...even gay people, but not us, and until he leaves the office, he has less than 6 months to do something or else whomever takes office will continue to carry the torch of sweeping us and the issues we as a people face under the rugs. It is a must see.

  • Paige

    Years ago these people would have been deemed mentally ill and prescribed medication and therapy. Now it's normal? I think the DSM still has this behavior classified as abnormal.

  • Just Keya

    If you ask me, these people making all the fuss need to be happy people still want to fight for this triflent ass country. Shit. I'm not always for the yadda yadda the transgender a are talking about, but shoot if they wanna go, send them.

    right, if they would like to go through that harrowing training and risk their lives stepping on land mines in the name of the free world, more power to them. being in the military is tough in this day and age. it's not like pre-9/11. we've been warring forever..

    The fact that we have to research it tho? LOL Obama has barely even said the phrase "Black People". He pandered to other politically strong groups that spend their dollars in pacts. These groups also have Whites in them, that's why he is in a second term, let's be real.

  • rachel

    Blacks are the easiest people to manipulate - I don't know why but it is the truth. May be that is the reason why blacks are not respected by any other ethnic group.

  • MissHarlem

    I know for one I'm not nor will I ever get in the military. I have always been confused about us fighting for a country that won't even give me a cup of water in the desert on my dying day.

    & i bet there's some 'straight heterosexual' males that are serving in the military now who really want to become transgenders. case in point, someone at my office was an ex-marine in his hey day. a highly decorated lieutenant... and guess what, him is a her now. in fact, after he retired, he became a high ranking government employee at the Library of Congress and when he got benefits he told them he was going to do a sex change, they fired him IMMEDIATELY, then he sued and won a butt load of money [millions even]. i'm pretty sure he may have had many of mental breakdowns or unstable moments due to his inner feelings whilst he was serving in the military, shrug.

    i guess white people don't want much for themselves either. call of duty is one of the biggest games on Earth. supes violent. what about GTA. what about Saints Row. what about that one video game that came out? Manhunt on the Wii where you had to stab folks and whatnot to get out... white folks created that. what about all the films that depict violence and gangs.. I guess Justin Timberlake and Ben Foster don't want much for themselves - who remembers Alpha Dog?

    this is a poorly thin silly argument. especially considering the demographic that purchases that music at a larger rate is white suburban kids...

  • nucynu25

    IMO...I agree with everyone kinda , minus the village idiot . I do think ppl expected Obama to do more for us but I think what some ppl forgot is that he is the President of the supposed to be free world not just our President . He does not control the show ..How sway ? Mfs been in congress their whole life sitting in the same damn seats for 50 years & we think a blk President is going to change things . We only been free really abt 60 years. The USA is a corporation ..it was only so much he couldve done ..yes I wish he could've done a little more ..I wish at a time like this he would stand up for US a little more but I am a woman of understanding so I get ..I will not dim his accomplishments or take away from him .

    what does that have to do with your original statement? nothing. please go read a book. the five paragraph essay model is easy to construct a solid argument: introduce topic, STAY ON TOPIC and clearly give two to three examples that support your argument. you're just grasping at loose overplayed strings that aren't correlated to the lame point you're trying to make. "black people don't like themselves bc of rap music," which shows me that you probably don't even know what real hip hop is anyway. you listen to what white people have deemed popular and distributed to the radio outlets which they too control. that also tells me you limit yourself to what people choose for you - otherwise you'd know that what you hear on the radio and what is deemed "popular" isn't a representation for the entire genre as a whole. furthermore, all "pop" music that is out these days is vapid because it's driven by the 13-25 demographic that has historically had the biggest disposable income. at 13 years old, most kids are not thinking about socioeconomic issues, race relations, and then some. they are worried about the same superficial themes that are reflected in ALL music that is overplayed on the radio. but you tried it though, bye now.

    I am not judging anyone. I am telling you what the Word of God says. Personally what you or anyone else does has no effect on me. So as Christians are we to sit back and watch and say nothing out of fear that we may be judging someone! Absolutely not! If my child tells a lie, I let him know what the word says about lying. I don't sit back and let it ride. I don't have a hell or heaven to put you in. I am simply stating what the word says!! We are to judge everything based on the word. I am not judging people who engage in these behaviors, I am simply pointing out it is sinful. And yes sometimes I am unholy and devious. And it is all inspired by Satan.

    Giving honor to God, I'd like you to bare with me as I come with the word this morning. Not the word of God, but the word on what Obama has done for me. Amen? So Saints if you will please turn with me to Google and look up Obama Care, section 1, paragraph 6. See this morning, my testimony is that I have Obama Care. And the Lord made it so I could have it. Amen? Stay with me now. And when I haaaddddd this baby. My insurance company caaalllleeddd me up. Ha! And told me they were sending me out, Ha! A pack in play. But my brother and my sisters, the woman on the phone said it was free! *starts two step* Lord have mercy. Praise God for letting Obama be in office so I did not have to spend the funds of the house on a pack in play. See, Obama and God both know budgets are tight and baby stuff is not cheap. But God is using Obama to make a way out of no way. Amen. But God. Won't HE do it!!!!!!!

    I know I am impressed. There are a few points I'd always believed, and his confirmation lets me know I am not the only person who thinks as I do. Between him, David Banner, Killer Mike, Big Krit, even Dead Presidents, they speak truth about the people...our power and being powerless. We need to hear how far behind, even the wealthy blacks are. When I look at how races as the Jews and Indians were paid reparations for oppression and destruction, what would happen if we were paid...Nothing. Not a damn thing will change. We will still buy that Jaguar living in an apartment without a garage to put it in. It's not our fault, but because we are so pinned down and on that hustle mentality, we don't know any better. It turned us selfish and petty with a crab like mentality. We don't even want to see others excel or proceed in life. Sad situation on our hands.

  • Just Keya

    Let me go find this on demand. Thanks!!

  • SameoleJ

    But you are judging, when you could simply shut the fukk up and mind ya own business., FYI, My GAY son LOVES God dearly and with all that he is!! He is constantly being blessed by the Lord and knows this......so why would God love him so, if he were so bad. And yes, he was born that way.....we knew he was gay before he even knew what it was. No one called him gay or put the thought in his mind and he attempted to fight who he was........I believe my God makes no mistakes and he made us all who we are. Although He gave us free will, He knew what direction we would go in before we knew. So stop putting My God in your hateful ideas. If He doesn't want it to be so, He will handle it. He doesn't need any of us to inform people or condemn anyone. The Word of God says a lot of things that people misunderstand, be careful that you are not one of them.For the Word of God says that He loves EVERYONE!!

  • Just Keya

    Amen

  • Paige

    Ok. If you say so. We must be speaking of a different God, because my God does not condone or encourage sin. Anyway no more arguments from me! Have a blessed day!

  • SameoleJ

    These Bible quoting hate mongers are the worse. Lord, forgive me for any judging I am about to do. The Bible is one of the scandalous books you will ever read, BUT if you pay attention to it, you will see that God used the WORSE OF THE WORSE to save his people. Shoot Rahab was a damn harlot and she saved how many? Her being a harlot was the ONLY reason she was able to do what she did!!

    And even though, this is a biblical truth, people will still judge a woman who is of that profession.

    If people are sinning, that is not your business to tell them the Bible, as just because you read the Word DOES NOT mean you fully comprehend it. And if you did, you would not use it to admonish or pass judgment on people. The best you can do is shut up and just pray for them....not spout the Word and perhaps run them away from a God who is all about having us all run TO Him.

    Let me go, cause I can't and I just won't!!

    And how sad is that. It's there choice to become a man or a woman. I don't have that choice. God made me who I am and I'm loving and making the best of it. Love what and who you are and stop trying to be something that your not. I feel that gay's or somewhat selfish. We must take what they give us and except it. If we must change for gay's, then they should except the happy medium we are trying to give them. Respect us and we'll respect you.when you try and force something upon someone they shut down. I feel this is what's happening

  • SameoleJ

    Well the president and his first lady showed me how to hold my mule in time of ignorance!! They proved that black people can be educated and classy, but still get ratchet and enjoy life. They proved to little black girls around the world that two young ladies can be raised in pomp and circumstance and still evolve into wonderful woman, who are educated and determined and are not relying on their position in life to be all that they have. They are pursuing further education, etc. Their father was a product of a single mother and he still grew to be an amazing man and father and a wonderful role model. His wife, kept her standards and because of that she married a man who loves, respects, values and trusts her and she returns that to him.

    Could he have done more? I can't honestly say, as I have no idea what ideas of his landed on the VETO floor and will not see the light of day. However I do believe that a lot of his ideas will be introduced as theirs in the next coming years and that is sad. Because so many of us are quick to turn on our own........this is one of the reasons we are still fighting a battle....NO UNITY!! People scream RIDE OR DIE, but those are the first to jump ship!!

    And with this I am off this post and preparing to leave for the day.

    Thank goodness for the General. I'm sure many in the military feel the same way. Mr. Obama needs to stop with the executive orders, he's losing.

  • rachel

    He has definitely changed the ways of the USA as well. Visit the White House website and read the executive orders that he has signed. Also check out the 72 groups of people who are now considered "extremist/terrorists" by the military under this administration. They include evangelical christians and those who are anti-gay, anti-abortion, don't believe in equal rights for the LGBT community, believe in end-time prophecies, veterans, etc.

    It's shocking but true. Do your research...

  • SameoleJ

    You do have the same choice they do.....you just choose not to. So what is the issue? How do you know that God is not okay with who they are? Again, He gave us free will and knew what choices we would make before we make them, so......................

    As for forcing, I don't think a lot of them are forcing anything, but if I am paying the same taxes (sometimes more, because quite a few make nice money) and I am doing everything that a "straight"person is doing....I expect the same benefits. Now the bathroom deal, I would prefer they just do gender neutral bathrooms and call it a day...however that would decrease the amount of bathrooms in an establishment.

    They don't care about vets when they discharge these soldiers with dishonorables for having a mental disorder which they acquired from combat. Doing so ensures they don't have to pay vet benefits. And since military spending was 598.5 billion in 2015 down from 671 billion in 2013, I would say the president is counting pennies and using coupons quite well.

  • No, you get over it

    Yeah. There are so many things that need to be done for the black community, such as:

    1. Freedom from slavery.

    2. A Civil Rights Act to outlaw segregation and employment/housing and natural rights discrimination on the basis of race.

    3. Access to higher education and special grants based on minority status.

    4. Affirmative Action laws.

    5. The right to marry and serve in the military like gays.

    6. Access to health care

    7. The right to bear arms like white Americans.

    8. Government funding for black schools and social programs such as job training, health and wellness,
    Housing, earned income tax credits, etc.

    And the list goes on and on forever. There are just so many things that black community needs for President 0bama to provide, and he just hasn't don't it.

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    And if it took him this much struggling to get rights for gays (much of whom are white) what did people think he would be able to do for solely black issues. The odds were always going to be stacked against him

    Yeah Barrack Obama and his LGBT Team... He Really has them... He is carrying them on his shoulders to take them across the finish line... I wish he was that passionate about MENTAL Illness.

  • No, you get over it

    Well can you also provide examples of what he was supposed to do specifically for the black community that the black community cant do for themselves? The only thing that I can come up with is reparations and the black unemployment rate, but we also have to understand that no President will likely ever be able to pass a reparations law in this country and the government can only influence employment so much in a free market. Self determination ultimately has to be the catalyst for one to improve their own personal circumstances.

    Also, since we are whining about 0bama and the black community, what has he done for the white community?

  • Emily post

    Well thats what happens when you get GLAMOURED by a Political Party and FORGET that its Just a Political Party. They have blacks so in the pocket they just pretend like they care grab a few black people that have been victimized as poster children and do absolutely nothing For Black People.

    Meanwhile, one of the major headlines from last nights speech is:

    Yes he is praised because he said they need protection from terrorist. Due to the night club shooter in FL being a "terrorist." that targeted that group of people.
    They left out how he talked about black unemployment in urban communities and possible causes. Or How he said everyone should be treated Equally and Kids in Fergusons Baton Rogue should have the same rights as everyone else. Or did you miss that part too that actually happened. Which was conveniently left out to fit the narrative of the liberal left.

    He's right. I can't wait for Obama to leave. It was just too much gay rights stuff during his presidency. Too many real issues were ignored. I respect him but I can't respect the changes he made.

    It gets messy. A woman who has not had her breast removed and still has a vagina maybe shouldn't be house with men although she identifies as a man.

  • No, you get over it

    Apparently you missed a whole lot. Trump spewed out a laundry list of political campaign "hopes and dreams", but he did not lay out one solution. That's what they all do, campaign and sell false hope. Talking about black unemployment doesn't get black people employed. Saying that everyone should be treated equally does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for those who are treated unequally. What policies can he possibly implement that will fix these problems? What magical solution is Trump going to come up with that no other administration has been able to accomplish within the confines of the checks and balances of our government?

    Oh that's right, there is magical solution. He's just blowing smoke up everybody's ass like all politicians do.

    I will state this is a good reason. Do transgendered people need to take hormones for the rest of their lives though? Let's assume they only let...fully converted (?

    They "retired" , for a reason. Maybe they need to enjoy their VA check and sit in the corner.

They use to get "distracted", from blacks and women too remember? They can't use that as an excuse if they wanna win the debate in 2016.

    That being said I'm curious why the military is allowing (and paying) for sex changes? If an individual is non-deployable it affects combat readiness. How is that beneficial? Our troops need to be focused on the mission. I'm all for living your truth. However...please think it through.
    Our wounded warriors need and deserve all the love and support that this country can give.
