Soldier in front of LGBT flag

The US Supreme Court gave President Trump the green light to enforce his ban on transgender individuals serving in the branches of the US military. The Court announced its decision on Tuesday.

Notable dissenters included Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Stephen Breyer, Elena Kagan, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who remains at home recovering from surgery to remove cancerous tumors from her lungs.

President Trump petitioned the Supreme Court to decide whether his military ban on transgender soldiers was legal, after federal judges loyal to former President Barack Obama challenged Trump's ban.

The plaintiffs in a series of lawsuits argued that the policy violated their constitutional rights including the First Amendment, equal protection, and due process.

But transgenderism, which is a symptom of the mental condition gender dysphoria, is not protected under the constitution.

The government said the SCOTUS decision was necessary because the lower court "requires the military to maintain a policy that, in its own professional judgment, risks undermining readiness, disrupting unit cohesion, and weakening military effectiveness and lethality."

The case will now return to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals for further proceedings.

According to the Daily Caller, another district court in Maryland that was not before the Supreme Court prohibits the government from enforcing its restrictions on transgender military personnel.

The status of Maryland's injunction is not immediately clear.

  • MoniquetheGeek

    He who avoided the military draft 5x wants to stop people (who actually want to serve) from doing so. How patriotic.

  • Sid

    They need to treat their mental illness before They are trusted to cover someone against gunfire

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I wouldn't fight for this military for shyt .... https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6f810f9dcac935e19c5cd01c08f3297b7f95d43412be1355598b96703fee26e5.gif Considering that fugga just may not pay your azz ...... shid Ban away Trump ....Only ones I care about is some veterans .....

    YES!!! NO other comment needed... You just spoke a mouth full!!!

  • Anunnaki, in A twilight Zone

    He's just going by what's already written, you can't serve in the military with a mental illness. All military person with a mental illness or a certain handicap, cannot serve.

  • SunRiseBlossom

    This GIF!!! Lol...

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Do you have a clue as to how many men and women with mental health issues that you CANT see by looking at them that join everyday? Oh you must not ever watch those serial killer or mass murder shows where alot of them at one point was in somebody's military.. they all looked straight. Not capping for anybody..just stating that if they are going to choose whose mental illness to weed out they need to do a more thorough examination than just the outer appearance...

  • Renee26

    Too bad the other mentally ill mf's including rapist can still sign up. The good old boys club isn't ready to respect people from all walks of life.

    Oh well...stay on domestic soil and don't worry about putting your life on the line to fight for a country that doesn't give a damn about you.... I tell black men the same thing

  • Renee26

    Amen ... This is more related to a certain "comfort" level they want the teams to have...

  • Kim’s Original Face

    They voted him in dont cry neowww

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

  • justlooking

    no argument here, but if that was the case. There would be no military. The military is full of mental cases. FROM TOP TO BOTTOM.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Exactly.. next they probably going to say its at the best interest of the country that women not serve and see how that goes.. Everybody has an opinion on everyone elses rights...until YOURS is violated then its a problem..remember when they use to say that black people brains weren't developed enough..

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    No, Obama did it so Trump HAD to undo it.

  • Renee26

    My son...my only child, is forbidden from joining. If others choose to that's on them and I respect their choice

    Add politics to that list too.
    No sane person would believe he/she could govern America in the current climate.

  • Renee26

    Chile they cover up rapes left and right in the military. They'll use that as an excuse... It's not safe for females so let them stay home in the kitchen barefoot and pregnant where they belong.

  • Li-Wright

    I agree w/ Trump on this. Obama overstepped and overreached, trying to appease the LGBT people. Transg. people are "identity" only, they are not the actual sex but what they want to be.

  • gellie

    SCOTUS already gutted the Voting Rights Act. It's BEEN happening.

    ??is this comedy hour?...this system is in the toilet....

  • Kayke

    Sure there are some who join to fight for the country but there will be plenty who join for the free reassignment surgery paid for by the Defense Department ......these individuals will ultimately play towards their mental illness after surgery in order to be discharged from service.

  • Elevated Soul

    There is but male and female and the occasion hermaphrodite. Everything else is just a delusional impostor...Real followers of The Creator know this.

    Taxpayers should not be paying for these delusional freeks surgery....Pay for it your d@mn self!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    They are the main ones doing stuff ..... smh .... Military really full of shyt ... fand it gives them easy access to create machines ..... not good .... especially with this fool now in office ... shid ...... heavy brainwashing is with the military heavy

    Ok does that mean soldiers who are already serving gets the boot
    Or those who are desiring to enlist can’t?

  • MrsSpice1

    Good!!! This is just tooooo much!!! There is nooooo way someone that is born male should be allowed to be a female in the army...If u want to be something or someone God didnt create u as.....fine! But there are restrictions that should never be crossed! Another thing too ill be damnddd if i have to use a public restroom with a man in a dress! We should not be forced to tolerate something that isnt natural! Im not judging but im not going to pretend that bs is ok!

  • Ricklaw

    I don’t understand why the lgbt is going after Kevin Hart and not trump he is constantly going after the gay community n they don’t say a word

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Probably both.
    Imagine how much money has been spent training transgender soldiers, but Trump doesn't care because it ain't his money.

  • 11pink123

    Go Trump!!!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I never seen that ... I need to check that out .... need to see it .... but yes this is why many of them have PTSD and among st other shyt ... implanting .... smh and it's easy for them to do so in the military ... easy access ... all ya gotta do is offer benefits ... or what you think are benefits ..... next thing you know trapped .... they have special departments that handle implanting ... and it's sick af!!!!!!! When they leave or retire they still try to controll them through sick as ways ....... mind control

  • SweetTEE

    Funny thing is my family is military.. and they have always told me I BETTER NOT enlist or even deal with a military man. I trust everything they tell me lol

    Kevin is black, how about that??

  • GOD_ALLAH_ABDUL_SHABAZZ

    Good!!! Get they transgender asses outta there! You don't see transgender soldiers in Russia, Iran, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China, North Korea, Germany......The US military don't need that kind of distraction in the ranks.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Mines too ..... I know my parents said nerp ... I say nerp ...... we starting new trends round here... survivors of military .... shewt .... ain't ever joining that matrix shyt ever again ...... this will be our legacy ..... because none of my kids better not ever join in the future... making sure they have other options so even if these clowns try to offer benefits ..... the other options benefits will be far more appealing ...... fawk em

    I saw a You Tube video on detransitioning and retransitioning. I do think people who go back and forth have issues and some don't really think about the implications of changing their body chemistry.

    GAAS: The US military don't need that kind of distraction in the rank

    That's the same thing they said about women, blacks and gays.

    If you're an American citizen and meet the criteria you should be allowed to serve.

  • SpiceGirl

    I agree

  • J2PC

    Like other Black entertainers who will do whatever it takes land a role or paid gig, Kevin refuses to allow them to use him as a pawn & image to help further break down the beliefs & mentality of Black men & women in the Africans/Black communities around the world.

    Had Kevin buckled under pressure, he probably would have been sporting a tutu w/stilettos & makeup by now while receiving Awards & praises unwarranted as a wink to benefits.

  • WHYJESUSWHY

    even if you are a hermaphrodite or intersexed, you still have ONE reproductive system that will determine you to be either male or female. You can have both appendages but the end all be all will be which reproductive system you have internally. It's that simple and I don't for the life of me understand the argument about, ''Well God made intersex people or hermaphrodites''. They exist, true but they are still either MALE or FEMALE.

  • J2PC

    They needed to use Kevin to help break down barriers in the Black communities. He is viewed as a hero or legend among certain groups of Black people & therefore can be used to infect minds & behaviors of his followers. -to say, if Kevin is that way...they maybe we too should be that way.

    The alarming rate of incurable STDs/HIV rates is often due to an "at-risk" behavior of various sorts. Change the behavior & get some standards and watch the life-threatening rates of STDs/HIV decrease.

  • Simone

    Those with serious mental disorders such as bipolar disorder or Schizophrenia are banned from the military. They don't meet the physical standards of the military. We don't need individuals doped up on "gender-changing" hormones serving. Men have xy chromosomes and women have xx chromosomes. There is no changing that gender via hormones or surgeries. As a kid, I wanted to be a bird and fly. I can't. I can't identify as one either. I was born a human female and will die as a human female.

  • Elevated Soul

    Again.... My comment is not about Hermaphrodite because they are born that way.They are the true transgender.

    My comment is about delusional people of the opposite sex who believe themselves to be something they will never be.

    My comment is also about people entering the military for the sole purpose of getting taxpayers to pay for their delusions.

  • GOD_ALLAH_ABDUL_SHABAZZ

    Then they should be limited to apply for one job in the military....a cook, that's it.

    I wonder if the same people will object of there’s ever a draft and they get called. They will be wishing they allowed anyone who wanted to serve to do so.

    A trained soldier is one who is mentally competent and NOT delusional with drugs pumped into their system because of their illness of gender disphoria.

If America wants to put that pressure on shutting that illegal crap down they can.
