President Trump Signs New Transgender Military Ban

President Trump has signed a new memorandum that bans most individuals suffering from gender dysphoria from US military service. The new directive adopts recommendations from Defense Secretary Jim Mattis that "transgender persons who require or have undergone gender transition" cannot serve.

The Folly Of Peace Without Victory In Afghanistan

The Taliban in Afghanistan and ISIS in Syria and Iraq, and its offshoots elsewhere around the world, do not desire any kind of “peace” except the peace of the Ummah – the peace of the worldwide reign of Islam.

It’s Up to Veterans to Reclaim Religious Liberty in Military Stolen by Obama

Secularists like former President Obama and atheists like Mikey Weinstein live to destroy this scared bond between God, Jesus, Chaplains and our men and women in uniform, and our history, and the damage they and their legions caused over the last eight long years in power was immense.

The Greatest Constitutional Crisis Of Trump's Presidency

The greatest constitutional crisis of Trump's presidency is the overreach of the federal judiciary, manifested first in the various lower court orders attempting to stymie the President's orders on immigration, and now, most seriously, by judges attempting to bypass the President to run the military and the Department of Defense from the federal bench.

CMR: Judges Should Not Run Our Military

Federal judges do not have the power to run the military, but they will continue to do so unless the Executive Branch vigorously takes up the fight. Unfortunately, LGBT activists and Obama holdovers at Defense and Justice are about to give away core constitutional powers of the Presidency to the judiciary.

Del. Bob Marshall Releases Letter Opposing Teaching Transgenderism To Kindergarteners

Delegate Bob Marshall released the following letter he sent to a parent in response to proposals to teach transgenderism to young children and to add “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to all school policies affecting students, teachers and staff in Prince William County Schools.

Transgender PAC To Spend $180,000+ To Attack Conservatives Like Bob Marshall

Danica Roem’s vast fundraising has enabled him to craft a very professional stealth campaign that emphasizes a moderate sounding agenda on local issues, like transportation, to put a more palatable gloss on a hard-Left social agenda.

Delegate Bob Marshall: The Most Important State Legislative Race In America

One of America's best-known limited government constitutional conservative state legislators, Virginia Delegate Bob Marshall, is under attack by Far-Left transgender activist Daniel Anthony Roem, now known as Danica Roem, who is swamping Marshall with money from out-of-state progressives.

Is The Pentagon Finally Listening To Conservatives On LGBT Issues?

Secretary James Mattis has quietly squelched (at least temporarily) the Obama plan to enlist transgender recruits into the United States military services. However, the question remains whether Mattis plans to kill Obama’s plan or to eventually let it become Pentagon policy.

Obama LGBT Policies at Pentagon, Other Agencies Running On Autopilot

“For 16 years we’ve been at war. When service members are not deployed overseas, they are preparing for war,” says retired Army Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin. “Not one minute of preparation time should be squandered on social experiments.”

Will Donald Trump Start the Second Korean War?

There is no magic solution to the North Korea Problem. But military action should be a last resort, reserved for preempting a direct and imminent threat that doesn’t presently exist. Washington must avoid triggering the Second Korean War.

Pro-Trump Conservatives Being Massacred In The Battle For The Pentagon

Richard V. Spencer may be eminently qualified on paper to be the next Secretary of the Navy, but President Trump was not elected to continue Obama’s national security policies, or worse yet, implement Hillary Clinton’s. We urge the President not to nominate Richard V. Spencer to be the next Secretary of the Navy.

The Battle to Keep the Pentagon in Democrat Hands

Staffing the Pentagon with the same people who created today’s national security disaster and expecting them to fix it is a recipe for complete failure, but this is apparently where Gen. Mattis is heading.

Trump Needs to Drain the Swamp at the Obama Pentagon

The neo-con counter to Trump’s “Make America Great Again” seems to be shaping up to be “Make Russia Evil Again.” If President-elect Trump wants to drain the swamp in DC, and formulate a new national security policy focused on winning cyberwarfare battles and eradicating ISIS and militant Islam, he should start by draining Obama’s Pentagon.

Transgenders In The Military: We Need A Revolt Of The Admirals And Generals

Congressional hearings without honest testimony from those military officers called to testify are useless. In Obama’s politicized Pentagon, and the environment of political correctness and gender politics in which it operates, it will take men and women of real courage, who are prepared to tell the truth about the danger of admitting into our military individuals with gender identity disorder, and, like the Admirals who revolted in 1948 and 1949, put their careers on the line.

Why are America’s Allies so Persistently Pathetic?

Washington’s allies generally are a pathetic lot. Benefiting from sizeable and capable populations and enjoying large and advanced economies, they nevertheless can’t be bothered to invest heavily in their own defense, so the bulk of Washington’s over-size military outlays are to project power for the benefit of its ne’er-do-well allies.

"Hundreds" of Islamic State fighters have been killed so far in U.S. airstrikes in Iraq, but killing those terrorists is "not the goal" of the U.S.-led campaign, said Rear Admiral John Kirby.
