Daniel Greenfield's must-read article on "transgenders" in the military

"The Transgender Ban Isn’t Fair. Neither is War" PDF is a superb summary. Excerpt:

Military readiness demands personnel who can deploy on short notice without ongoing medical problems holding them back. It wants recruits in prime health who can give all they have. Medical issues don't just drive up costs so that hard choices have to be made. They also cost lives...

A soldier patrolling around Taliban territory in Afghanistan who runs into medical issues has to be evacuated by helicopter. That puts the crew at risk. Helicopter crashes have made up a sizable chunk of the American death toll. Since medical personnel in Afghanistan won't be equipped to deal with transgender problems, he will have to be flown out to Germany. And then to America.

Meanwhile the leading medical challenge in Afghanistan is getting enough trained medics to prevent soldiers whose limbs have been blown off by an IED from dying of blood loss before getting to surgery.

Should resources be diverted from keeping dying soldiers alive to managing transgender issues?...

The military is not a social experiment. It's the fine line between us and death.

Read the whole thing at Front Page Mag. Thank you, Daniel!

Myth that Democrat and Republican parties "switched" sides

"Science is the belief in the ignorance of the experts"

LIZNOTES - People Don't Have Genders That's the tagline quote of Richard Feynman from "The Deplorable Climate Science Blog" at realclimatescience.com. See this week's post "Coldest July Temperature Ever Recorded In The Northern Hemisphere". As James Delingpole notes today, the media just keeps on with the lying:

"Climate science is not a science. It is a criminal
venture intended to extort money from the public."

We have become inundated all around with a belief in "ignorant experts" instead of the ignorance of experts, whether 27-year-old media pundits and uneducated Hollywood types stupidly opining about what Trump and co. have done or should do, to judges' deference to the quackery of child custody evaluations in family court.

On not "making mock of uniforms that guard you while you sleep"

From My American Dream, by Charles C. W. Cooke:

If you hang around a British person long enough, you are practically guaranteed to hear him make a derisive quip about Americans. In all likelihood, he won't even notice that he's done it...

Before September 11, it had never occurred to me that the stability of global trade, international peace, and the integrity of transnational communications were in some regard the product of a naval supremacy that the United States silently inherited from the British.

It had never occurred to me that the world would look dramatically different if another country or axis enjoyed this power, and that it was in my interest to ensure that this never happened. I had never considered, in other words, the importance of the Pax Americana. From now on, I would...

...the U.S. Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, the Federalist and Anti-Federalist papers, and the men who, in Frederick Douglass's immortal words, "preferred revolution to peaceful submission to bondage"...

However vehemently my leftist friends tried to relegate the virtue of a nation to the sum of its spreadsheets, the fact remains that the United States is the only country in the world that was founded explicitly on a proposition, and that in consequence has a set of values to which it can return and to which its immigrants may hew...

And from The fates of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence"
Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured. Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War...

Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well educated. But they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured...

They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor... They gave you and me a free and independent America... Some of us take these liberties so much for granted, but we shouldn't. So, take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday and silently thank these patriots. It's not much to ask for the price they paid. Remember: freedom is never free.
