President Trump introduced a transgender military ban in 2017, keeping good on his promise to end Obama’s military social experiments.
But some rogue lower federal court judges appointed by Obama have been blocking the ban just to “stick it” to Trump.
And now the Supreme Court just made the ruling on Trump’s transgender military ban that everyone has been waiting for.
The Supreme Court has ruled that the Trump administration may begin to implement its ban on transgenders in the military while cases on the ban make their way to the court.
The vote was a 5-4 majority with all of the conservative judges voting in favor of the ruling.
This is one of President Trump’s first major wins with the help of newly appointed Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Fox News reports:
The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed the Pentagon to restrict military service for transgender individuals while the Trump administration’s policy is litigated in the lower courts.
The ruling reversed the orders implemented by lower courts, which had prevented the Pentagon from proceeding with the plan. The issue brought a 5-4 conservative-liberal split, with Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan voting to keep the block on enforcement in place, while the five conservative justices, including Justice Brett Kavanaugh, voted to allow the policy to go into effect.
The court’s decision, though, does not apply to the policy’s legality, or President Trump’s authority to issue the ban. The decision was simply related to the policy’s enforcement while the case continues to go through litigation at the lower courts.
The ruling came after the Justice Department requested that the Supreme Court bypass the lower courts and decide the issue—a request the high court rejected on Tuesday, instead directing the case to work its way through the appeals and lower courts.
Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec praised the Supreme Court’s ruling in a statement Tuesday.
“We are pleased the Supreme Court granted stays in these cases, clearing the way for the policy to go into effect while litigation continues. The Department of Defense as the authority to create and implement personnel policies it has determined are necessary to defend our nation,” Kupec said.
This is a significant win for President Trump and our military.
Millions of Americans were sick and tired of the social experiments that the military had to endure during Obama’s eight years.
And Donald Trump promised everyone in 2016 that those social experiments would be put to an end.
The military is a no frills operation whose goal is to defend the homeland, not cater to Social Justice Warriors.
The reality is transgenderism is a mental issue. And soldiers on the frontlines must be able to rely on the men in the fox hole with them.
Americans are looking to President Trump to rebuild our military to the strength it once had.
Implementing the President’s transgender military ban is the first step to doing just that.
