Stand with President Trump's decision for a strong military

This week, President Trump kept his promise to return the U.S. military to its priorities – and end the social experimentation of the Obama era that has crippled our nation’s troops. The president said decisively that that the U.S. military should be “focused on decisive and overwhelming victory,” as he ended the Obama administration’s transgender policy in the military.

The president’s announcement signals that the days of politically-correct, culture war fighting are over. For the president who has said, "I want a very, very strong military," this step shows the military will return to its mission of keeping America safe by focusing on true warfighting. 

This decision, of course, is not a popular one with the politically correct Left who see the military not as a lethal fighting force, but as a social laboratory. Right now, these sexual anarchists are making their voices heard. That’s why it’s important for those who care about our military’s mission to stand with the president on this decision.

Please join me in signing our statement of support for President Trump’s ending of the Obama military transgender policy.

President Trump Prioritizes Military over Obama Era Transgender Policy

"The last thing we should be doing is diverting billions of dollars from mission-critical training to something as controversial as gender reassignment surgery. However, the cost to readiness, recruitment, retention, morale and cohesion would have been even greater under the Obama policy. As our nation faces serious national security threats, our troops shouldn't be forced to endure hours of transgender 'sensitivity' classes and politically-correct distractions like this one." -Tony Perkins, FRC President

If abortion groups are trying to keep a low profile, they’re not doing a very good job of it. While Congress debates whether taxpayers should fund the likes of Planned Parenthood, the industry has spent the last six months trying to avoid headlines. That will be impossible now, thanks to a federal judge who’s threatening to send the man responsible for exposing the grisly business to jail. At issue now is whether ... (more)

Trump, Congress Should Halt Transgender Military Policy that Costs Billions

by Peter Sprigg

Peter Sprigg is Senior Fellow for Family Policy Studies at Family Research Council. This article appeared in Townhall on June 30, 2017. Last year, without any systematic study of the consequences, the Obama administration reversed longstanding policies that excluded those who identify as transgender, on both psychological and medical grounds, from serving in the U.S. military. The armed services immediately stopped discharging existing service members who suffer from gender dysphoria (unhappiness with their biological sex at birth). Phase ... (more)

The Decay of Liberty and the Rule of Law in 21st Century America

by Peter Johnston

Ideas have consequences. When walking through a law library in Cambridge, Mass., as I did with my son a number of years ago, one comes across an arresting inscription: “OF LAW THERE CAN BE NO LESSE ACKNOWLEDGED THAN THAT HER SEATE IS THE BOSOME OF GOD, Bishop Hooker, Ecclesiastical Politie, 1st Booke, p. 94 (1604).” This inscription is found in the Langdell Reading Room of the law library at Harvard University, whose motto is “Veritas,” the Latin word for “truth.” As we will explore, the concept of the law ...
