  • Sens. McCain and Ernst oppose Trump's ban on transgender military service

    Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, quickly announced their opposition Wednesday to President Trump's Twitter announcement that the U.S. military would not "accept or allow" transgender military service members.

    "Any American who meets current medical and readiness standards should be allowed to continue serving," McCain wrote. "There is no reason to force service members who are able to fight, train, and deploy to leave the military - regardless of their gender identity."

    He continued: "We should all be guided by the principle that any American who wants to serve our country and is able to meet the standards should have the opportunity to do so - and should be treated as the patriots they are." ... More

    1% of the military are transgender according to Google. Starting with Trump, can't we all find something a bit more pressing to work on in this country?

      If Trump would say, Water is wet. McCain would disagree with it.

        Once the military pays for the adding or chopping, they have to pay for all the hormone treatments and medications for the rest of his/her life. Is this true or false?

                That senile old SOB is a long-time admirer of long-since-dead Teddy Kennedy... 'nuff said.

                The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 (H.R. 2580; Pub.L. 89-236, 79 Stat. 911, enacted June 30, 1968), also known as the Hart-Celler Act, changed the way quotas were allocated by ending the National Origins Formula that had been in place in the United States since the Emergency Quota Act of 1921. Representative Emanuel Celler of New York proposed the bill, Senator Philip Hart of Michigan co-sponsored it, and Senator Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts helped to promote it.
                Three Decades of Mass Immigration: The Legacy of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 (September 1995)

                "This bill we sign today is not a revolutionary bill. It does not affect the lives of millions. It will not restructure the shape of our daily lives." ~ President Lyndon B. Johnson

                "First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the same ... Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset ... Contrary to the charges in some quarters, the bill will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or the most populated and deprived nations of Africa and Asia ... In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of immigration under the proposed measure is not expected to change as sharply as the critics seem to think." ~ Senator Edward Kennedy (D-MA)

                "The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs." ~ Senator Edward Kennedy (D-MA)

                "Contrary to the opinions of some of the misinformed, this legislation does not open the floodgates." ~ Senator Claiborne Pell (D-RI)

                "We estimate that if the President gets his way, and the current immigration laws are repealed, the number of immigrants next year will increase threefold and in subsequent years will increase even more ... shall we, instead, look at this situation realistically and begin solving our own unemployment problems before we start tackling the world's?" ~ Rep William Miller (R-NY)

                "What I object to is imposing no limitation insofar as areas of the earth are concerned, but saying that we are throwing the doors open and equally inviting people from the Orient, from the islands of the Pacific, from the subcontinent of Asia, from the Near East, from all of Africa, all of Europe, and all of the Western Hemisphere on exactly the same basis. I am inviting attention to the fact that this is a complete and radical departure from what has always heretofore been regarded as sound principles of immigration." ~ Senator Spessard Holland (D-FL)

                "With the end of discrimination due to place of birth, there will be shifts in countries other than those of northern and western Europe. Immigrants from Asia and Africa will have to compete and qualify in order to get in, quantitatively and qualitatively, which, itself will hold the numbers down. There will not be, comparatively, many Asians or Africans entering this country... Since the people of Africa and Asia have very few relatives here, comparatively few could immigrate from those countries because they have no family ties in the U.S." ~ Rep. Emmanuel Cellar (D-NY)

                President Lyndon B. Johnson signs the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, starting the USA on her journey to a European minority.

                    I keep seeing posts from people in the military things like "We had a trans in our unit. Nobody cared. As long as he/she was shooting at the bad guys."

                    Sounds like a non issue. LOVE TRUMP!!

                        John McCain is the epitome of RINO, as much a Republican as Ted Kennedy was.

                          Oh yeah? ... Maybe you could post a few links to legitimate service-members posting such, not paid trolls attempting to influence public opinion?... I peruse Military.com, ArmyTimes.com and a few other regularly; I've never seen any posts accepting of this... The MSM is actively suppressing discontent in their social media over this issue by deleting any posts critical of such... Obama did the same thing by FIRING a record number of general officers during his terms.
