Just Issue The Order Mr. President

On Wednesday, July 26 President Trump tweeted that it was his policy that individuals with sex dysmorphia (transgender) would no longer be accepted for military service. This decision reversed Obama policies that promoted and encouraged the acceptance of undeployable transgender service personnel.

Since that time the senior levels of the military and defense department have made it clear that they are reluctant to move forward without an order from the President or in some cases have made direct statements of Donald Trumpdefiance toward the President’s policy.

Coast Guard Commandant Paul Zukunft pledged to "not break faith" with transgender service members in remarks to a Washington think tank on Tuesday -- adding that he immediately reached out to all 13 transgender members of the Coast Guard immediately following the tweets.

Specifically, Zukunft described his call to Lt. Taylor Miller, who is reportedly the first openly transitioning member of the Coast Guard and was recently featured in the Washington Post.

"I told Taylor I will not turn my back," Zukunft told the Center for Strategic and International Studies forum. "We have made an investment in you and you have made an investment in the Coast Guard, and I will not break faith."

The Coast Guard is part of the Department of Homeland Security but "aligns closely with Department of Defense on accessions and workforce/HR policies and will be working with them on this new policy going forward," according to a department spokesperson according to CNN.

The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Joseph Dunford, has informed service members that there will be "no modifications to the current policy until the President's direction has been received by the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary has issued implementation guidelines."

"In the meantime, we will continue to treat all of our personnel with respect," Dunford wrote in a memo to the military that was obtained by CNN. "As importantly, given the current fight and the challenges we face, we will all remain focused on accomplishing our assigned missions."

Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley said Thursday that, to date, he has not received "directives on implementation" for a ban and learned about the President's decision through the media.

"We will work through the implementation guidance when we get it and then we'll move from there," CNN reports he added while speaking at the National Press Club.

“The next step is to formalize what the Commander-in-Chief announced yesterday.  President Trump or the Secretary of Defense, James Mattis, should formally revoke expendable Obama-era administrative directives, which were written in consultation with LGBT activist groups and like-minded, always-pro LGBT contractors such as RAND,” said our friend Elaine Donnelly of the Center for Military Readiness.

The justification for President Trump’s decision is abundant, as documented by the Center for Military Readiness recently released 27 -page CMR Special Report, which identifies and analyzes fifteen Defense Department and military service directives that former Defense Secretary Ashton Carter and other Pentagon officials imposed on our military, starting in 2015:

Department of Defense & Military Services Should Revoke Problematic Transgender Policy Directives and Instructions

Executive Summary

The Obama administration issued fifteen directives, instructions, and mandatory, time-wasting training programs to force the military to retain and recruit persons with a psychological condition that renders them non-deployable for long periods of time.  All of them reflect the pervasive groupthink and delusional ideology that has permeated Pentagon plans for transgenders in our military said Elaine Donnelly.

We applaud President Trump for making this decision, but it is clear that the Pentagon is not going to move until it gets an order from the White House.

However, this does not have to be as complicated as it sounds – it could be as simple as a phone call from the President to the Secretary of Defense telling him to get the show on the road and proceed to policy implementation.

Alternatively, the President’s staff could prepare a memo to Secretary Mattis memorializing the policy stated in the President’s tweets and justifying it with the facts and conclusions of the CMR Special Report.

Either way, it is time for the President to issue the order and the Pentagon to move forward with the implementation of the President’s policy
