Elder Patriot – The MSM devoted their entire 24-hour news cycle to deriding President Trump’s decision to restore sanity to our military by rescinding Obama’s order allowing transgendered individuals to serve openly in our military.
The MSM was apoplectic over his choice of Twitter to make the announcement:
The truth is they’d have been apoplectic over any way he chose to make this announcement. The facts overwhelmingly support the president’s decision:
- Suicide attempts are alarmingly common among transgender individuals according to a USA Today story from August 16, 2015; 41% try to kill themselves at some point in their lives, compared with 4.6% of the general public. The numbers come from a study by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and the Williams Institute, which analyzed results from the National Transgender Discrimination Survey.
Before you let the MSM convince you that this is the result of discrimination take a look at the chart:
No group of people have ever been discriminated against like black males have be and their suicide rate between .01 and .02% – lower than their white male counterparts. This is the type of courage and determination that make America’s fighting forces the most feared in the world.
There is nothing more stressful than combat conditions and while there is no doubt that a limited number of transgendered soldiers are mentally tough enough to properly execute their responsibilities – not only to themselves but to their comrades in arms – the overall statistics do not support the massive investment in such a social experiment.
- Transitioning transgender soldiers’ medical expenses are 14 times higher than those of the average soldier.
Military spending should be solely focused on the most cost efficient was to accomplish its objectives. Any spending on the medical and psychological needs for soldiers who may break at any time undermines that goal.
Sara Huckabee Sanders defended returning the policy that had served our nation for 240 years when she told a questioner that the policy fulfills the military’s most efficient way to defend the country. She reminded everyone that there is no “right” to serve in the military. The military only has the obligation to protect the country and the freedom of all within it at the lowest cost with the least loss of life.
Meanwhile, the MSM completed a virtual total blackout of the 13,000 real full-time jobs that will be created in Wisconsin as a result of President Trump’s business friendly policies. Apple supplier Foxconn announced the completion of negotiations to invest $10 billion to build a new manufacturing plant that produces LCD panels. The project should be completed by 2020.
Foxconn employees currently earn an average of $51,000 annually. That is almost equal to Wisconsin’s median income for an entire household.
So, yesterday Trump improved military effectiveness and reduced the costs to taxpayers. Then he announced $663 million in new jobs and all the MSM wanted you to focus on the few hundred SJW’s who, in their twisted and selfish minds, think this is a setback for humanity.
In making the announcement Foxconn CEO Terry Gou ended his comments by turning President Trump and saying, “Mr. President, the eagle flies.”
Indeed it does, but you’d never know it listening to the MSM.
