On Monday, U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly ruled that the Pentagon and President Trump will no longer be able to stop transgenders from signing up for the military.
There was a freeze on until certain arguments could be filed, but the judge decided the government had not met its burden of proof that the military would be irreparably injured by the decision to allow transgenders to serve.
This is the wrong decision. You can’t enter these things into combat because they are mentally disturbed. If they do not know what gender they are, how can they make the right decisions on the battlefield when necessary? I am not speaking from this point of view like a bigot, I served for eight years and even in the Gulf War. The military is not ready for this no matter how many classes you put the soldiers through.
Whoever this judge is, they have probably never served and adhere to the social networking policies of Barack Obama to allow something like this to move forward.

“The Court is not persuaded that Defendants will be irreparably injured by” meeting the New Year’s Day deadline, U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly wrote.
The ruling from Kollar-Kotelly of the District of Columbia follows her earlier opinion blocking the president’s ban on military recruitment of transgender men and women that possibly would have forced the dismissal of current service members starting in March.
“With only a brief hiatus, Defendants have had the opportunity to prepare for the accession of transgender individuals into the military for nearly one and a half years,” when the policy was initially issued in June 2016, she wrote. “Especially in light of the record evidence showing, with specifics, that considerable work has already been done, the Court is not convinced by the vague claims in [the government’s] declaration that a stay is needed.
A second federal judge in Baltimore also issued a preliminary injunction in November that goes further in preventing the administration from denying funding for sex-reassignment surgeries after the order takes effect.
Rogue federal judges are now running the military, and imposing their leftist views on recruitment, regardless of any impact on national security, and the same federal judges are now running our immigration system, mandating open borders, and refusing to allow the President to use his enumerated powers to protect us. How’s that working out?
The courts are supposed to decide whether or not a law or policy is constitutional, not whether or not they think it is a good or even moral thing to do. This is why there was no national judiciary under the Articles of Confederation, and many of the Founders hesitated putting one in the Constitution. Judges are human beings with feelings and beliefs, and when you have the power to approve or reject an idea, it is nearly impossible for most of us to set those personal factors aside and decide a case strictly on its legal and constitutional merits.
Hey McConnell, can we hurry up and appoint more real federal judges, who follow their job description?
