"War Among the Sexes"... As Trump Announces Transgender Ban for the Military...


Wow, I didn’t see this one coming.  Trump making a “Command” decision to “ban” transgender citizens from serving in the Armed Forces; at a time when top Pentagon officials have yet to uphold Human and Civil Rights protection of our military personnel; against, racial-gender inequality, sexual discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault, rape, retaliation, bullying, abuse of authority… the list goes on!!

Earlier yesterday, Trump tweeted, "Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming ... victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail.”

As a victim of racial-gender inequality during the nearly 20 years I served on active duty, as a prior enlisted and officer, after experiencing an egregious violation of my Human and Civil Rights, I was later forced to file a Civil Action lawsuit against the Navy’s Secretary, highlighting the Civil-Human Rights abuse I endured as a military “whistleblower.”  

Over a decade later, the Navy continues its retaliatory acts against me, as its Board for Correction of Naval Records (BCNR) stalls their final decision on my application for clemency.

And you wonder why members of the legal community are assisting Veterans in preparing one of the largest Class Action lawsuits of our times!!

As an Advocate for Human Rights and Civil Rights protection, especially for personnel serving in our Armed Forces, I think General Mattis made a wise decision, to postpone the military’s “transgender” policy, to allow the Pentagon ample time to iron-out the details, to include them in larger numbers. 

In the military, it’s a numbers game, based on quotas and proportion. 

We are facing difficult times in our country, in both our society and political arena and to use (abuse) our military to usher in a social-political agenda will only increase the causalities in the long run; thus creating more animosity amongst the ranks!!

There are far too many cases of rape and sexual assault that the Pentagon has yet to properly deal with; by implementing “enforceable” protective laws to prosecute military sexual predators, while preserving the careers of the unit commanders, will ensure both Civil and Human Rights protection of  members of the transgender community; as they serve as an underrepresented minority within the ranks of our military.

As minority members of a “protected class,” hundreds and thousands of veterans “victims” have provided ample -- written and public testimony, to members of the Senate (and Veterans Affairs) to warrant a Human Rights Bill, to better protect our service members from being harmed by their colleagues, as our military evolves into a better fighting force, which is what President Trump and our military leaders all agree on.   It is time to call a truce on Capitol Hill and Make America Great Again, which is to fully support EQUALITY within our Defense Department!!

As the Pentagon “stalls” its decision on whether to uphold former President, Barack Obama’s military’s transgender policy, the Navy has opened its doors to train several women for its elite SEAL and Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewman programs.


Can you say, "GI Jane!?"

I'm all for Equality but I would like to see these women (not transgenders) compete against some of the Navy's hard-core warfighters, "fair and square!!"  Without political influence, or to push a political agenda, like what we saw with the Army Rangers training program!!

As a triple-minority, I was forced to compete with men during each phase of my enlisted and officer career and I did not expect for the rules to be bent for me, but I did demand to be respected as a woman “on the job!!”

Throughout my entire Navy career, I had to prove myself 200%!!

As a female officer, I was forced to serve in isolated conditions, without female moral support, and through God’s Grace, I survived!!!  

As I bring that chapter of my life to an end, I’m thankful for my military experience because it helped to polish the woman I am today!!

Once these young ladies (not transgenders) complete the training satisfactory, again-without the rules being bent for them, I would be the First in line to salute them for a job Well Done!!!!!

I also offer the Pentagon a bit of advice before putting our young ladies in harm’s way, while they face potential hazards “On the Job,” which is to ensure their Civil and Human Rights are Protected and Upheld, in light of the ongoing sexual assault and rape scandals that have plagued our military, from the top – down!!  

I guess this will be a true test of strength and moral character for our young boys and girls as they put their best foot forward to represent the Navy’s best!! 

Yet I’m sure senior Pentagon officials are still trying to figure this one out…  Especially during HELL WEEK!!

Sex for secrets: Retired US admiral among those charged in ‘Fat Leonard’...

"WHITE" SCIENTIST SNITCHES: "THE BLACKS" ARE TARGETED BY THE MEDICAL SHYTSTEM

Why is Washington Named the District of Columbia?

My ongoing Fight for Justice continues, while senior Naval Officers avoid prosecution for their involvement in the "Fat Leonard" fraud scandal.



It pains me to write this blog, as much as it pains me to see our citizen’s health care benefits decreased, our elderly benefits decreased, our children’s public education benefits decreased, while trillions of hard earned tax dollars are allocated towards our military industrial complex without proper internal checks and balances, to keep our senior military officials honest!!

I’ve pretty much beat a dead horse as a military whistleblower and it appears that my fight for justice will be a lone victory, to be celebrated in the next life, and I will most likely go down in history as the woman who stood her ground, in spite of the deck being stacked against me!

As I reflect back to July 18, 2008, while incarcerated at the Mira Brig, the Navy Inspector General released the findings of a severely tainted Equal Opportunity, Retaliation and Fraud investigation; thus citing that my former bosses had in fact committed fraud against the government. 

Go figure!! 

Yet my only crime was that I did not remain silent about their criminal activity.

Mind you, when I swore my oath of office, upon graduation from Officer’s Candidate School, I swore to uphold and defend the Constitution, against all enemies, both foreign and domestic!!


As a Staff Corps Supply Officer, I had a fiduciary responsibility to our government as well as to our tax paying citizens; and some may argue, in light of the rampant fraud within the Navy—spanning over the course of 20 plus years, that my former bosses and others who'd defrauded the government could be viewed as the enemy.

As the Pentagon’s legal reviewing officials continue to ponder over their final argument on my case, while the Board for Correction of Naval Records (BCNR) stalls their decision, I offer one final word of advice, “To uphold an injustice makes you just as guilty as those who committed the injustice.”

As an obviously strong woman of moral conviction, I pray that our next generation of military officers uphold their oath of office to defend the Constitution and not fall in rank and file to uphold the illegal actions and morally corrupted motives of your greedy commanders who would rather defraud the government than preserve the moral fabric our Great Constitution!!

As American society is becoming a huge "Transgender Experiment” the military is being forced to become a part of it, thanks to former President Barack Obama. According to the U.S. Army, “Transgender Men in Women’s Showers Must Get ‘Dignity and Respect!” Meanwhile, the Pentagon has failed to prevent rape and sexual assault from occurring within the ranks, now this!! WTH!!!


Female soldiers must give “dignity and respect” to transsexual men who join them in their shared shower rooms, according to training manuals leaked by soldiers in a mandatory class.
But this “dignity and respect” is a one-way street, according to the training slides, which were developed by officials working for former President Barack Obama. “Transgender Soldiers are not required or expected to modify or adjust their behavior based on the fact that they do not ‘match’ other Soldiers,” according to the slides, which were first leaked by TheFederalist.com:



The insistence that women remain mute when a man enters their shower room “shows a lack of respect for the vast majority of service members [because] no consideration is given to their feeling about this circumstances,” said Peter Sprigg, senior policy studies expert at the Family Research Council in Washington.

Female soldiers in showers are supposed to ignore visible biology and “act as if nothing has happened when some male … is all of a sudden in the shower room with them,” said Austen Ruse, president of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute. “This is a flat-out humiliation of women. … Females will have their dignity and respect violated [and] they are being told this does not matter even a little bit,” he added. 

Female soldiers will not even be allowed to cover themselves because it could signal a lack of “respect” for the transsexual man in the shower, Ruse said.

Several nations have decided to accept transsexuals into their militaries, including Sweden, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. In 2014, a group of those transsexual soldiers held a joint press conference with the ACLU in Washinton D.C. See photo above. 

The demand for “dignity and respect” of transsexuals is shot through the Army documents because the “transgender ideology” insists that normal Americans — including American soldiers — must respect claims by men who insist they are women, regardless of their visible genitalia, civic practices, law, and science.
The justification for this transsexual demand is the unproven claim that all people have a so-far unverified “gender identity” that can be disconnected from their obviously female or male body. Transgender activists then argue that a person’s “gender identity” is more important than the fundamental sexual distinctions between male and female humans, and, in fact, also requires that the transgender men be treated as legal females, whether or not they have had surgery.
Because a person’s “gender identity” is deemed more important than a person’s actual sex, the Pentagon’s rules do not require that transgender soldiers undergo sexual surgery before they switch their legal sex. According to the new rules, a soldier who has a conflicting “gender identity” is deemed “stable in preferred gender” once:
  • a documented medical treatment plan is complete, no functional limitations or complications persist, and the individual is not experiencing clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning. Continuing medical are, including but not limited to cross-sex hormone therapy, may be required to maintain a state of stability.

The shift to pro-transgender, anti-sex language also means there are no recognized male or female bodies in the military, nor are there any recognized members of the two sexes. Instead, the sex of each soldier is reduced to a mere “gender marker,” which is amputated from Americans’ expectations for the behavior of members of the male sex and the female sex. According to the new rules, the “gender marker” is a just “data element” in the “Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting system.”
This shift in focus from the sex of a soldier to the “gender marker” has additional impacts. For example, all soldiers are expected to take periodic drug tests by peeing into a cup in front of a higher-ranking soldier. This means female soldiers will be required to pee into cups while sitting beside a soldier with a female “gender marker,” even when the observing soldier is male. According to a document provided with the training. “It is DoD and Army Policy that a urinalysis sample must be collected by direct observation and that, absent an exception to policy, the observer will be the same gender as the Soldier being observed (as reflected by the gender marker in DEERS).”

The new policy of ignoring sexual differences in favor of a “gender marker” will apply throughout many Army procedures, including sharing bedrooms:  "For facilities subject to regulation by the Army, a Soldier uses those billeting, bathroom, and shower facilities associated with the Soldier’s gender marker in DEERS.”

The rules also say that men who declare themselves to be women only have to meet the lower physical standards required of female soldiers who tend to be smaller and lighter and have less testosterone. This means that normal soldiers must provide “dignity and respect” to the transsexual male soldiers who are only obliged to meet the lower standards for female soldiers.

These military documents establish the transgender ideology as a government-backed belief system in place of Americans’ long-standing treatment of women and men as equal, different, and complementary, says Sprigg. The transgender rules are “really serving an ideological purpose, not a military purpose,” he said.
However, on June 30, Secretary of Defense James Mattis announced a six-month delay on the planned July 1 recruitment of transsexuals, scheduled by Obama officials, who also dropped the ban on open transsexuals in the military and commissioned the new training manuals.

The Mattis delay gives the military time to debate and prevent Obama’s damaging pro-transgender policies, said Sprigg. Under Obama, the military was “never asked ‘Do you think this is a good idea?’ – they were told this is what is going to happen,” he said. 

For example, the financial costs of the pro–transgender rules will be enormous, he said. Obama’s officials promised to pay for the hormones and surgeries sought by new recruits, and accepted the extra costs of replacing transsexuals who cannot go to war because of their unique medical requirements, such as the muscle-weakening female hormones, he said. Those costs could reach $3.7 billion over the next ten years if the number of transsexual people in the military matches claims by transgender activists, he said. 

If the military offers free medical services to transsexual recruits, the number of transsexuals in the military might increase, further boosting costs. Already, military doctors are required to provide transgender-related services to soldiers even if they judge those services are harmful, according to the Center for Military Readiness.

And if the military agrees to establish the transgender ideology at the end of the six-month delay, the pro-transgender campaign will be boosted in the nation’s courtrooms, capitols, and classrooms, said Ruse. “Every transgender activist can point to the military to say, ‘They’ve done, it, so we should do it… in grade schools, high schools, colleges, everywhere,” said Ruse.
The progressive outcome is possible because White House officials have not taken a strong stand against the transgender ideology’s hostility towards the two sexes, he said. “I’m very nervous,” said Ruse.

“We have not seen a lot of concern from Trump … [so] we’re working closely with allies on Capitol Hill,” said Sprigg. 

The long-term goal “is cultural transformation, not one of increasing the effectiveness of our military,” said Sprigg. 

The transgender ideology demands that the federal government force Americans to accept the “gender identity” sex-switching claims made by each person, regardless of scientific data about genetics, biology, and the variety of normal behavior and appearances shown by normal, equal, different, and complementary women and men, boys and girls.
The progressive push to bend Americans’ attitudes and their male-and-female civic society around the idea of “gender” has already attacked and cracked popular social rules for how Americans handle the many charming differences between complementary men and women.

Air Force Academy suspends 4 sexual assault counselors amid investigation.



Four workers at the Air Force Academy’s Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office have been suspended amid a month-long investigation that leaders of the school won’t discuss.

Academy spokesman Lt. Col. Allen Herritage said undisclosed “issues” triggered a probe ordered by academy leaders. The investigation involves an academy office that school Superintendent Lt. Gen Michelle Johnson and others have held up as a national example for how colleges can care for sexual assault victims while educating students through prevention programs.

“That investigation lasted over a month and involved dozens of interviews,” Herritage said in an email. “At this time, due to the fact that review of the investigation and related processes are still ongoing, as well as privacy concerns of those involved, we cannot discuss details or findings of the investigation.”

A source familiar with details of the investigation, but was not authorized to speak to the media, told The Gazette that four full-time staff members of the six-person office were suspended. The source said Johnson told academy leaders she had “lost faith” in the office’s ability to care for victims. Herritage confirmed that an undisclosed number of staff members “are no longer performing” sexual assault prevention and response work.  The colonel said he couldn’t say how many, because disclosing the number of staffers relieved of their duties could reveal identities

Translation...  "Give Americans a "pill" and they will forget all about their worries."  

Meanwhile...

Trump Administration, instigating Naval aggression in the Pacific. Meanwhile, senior Naval officials are under fire for committing ongoing Fraud in that region.



Washington Post reports, “U.S. destroyer sails near disputed island in South China Sea”

An American guided-missile destroyer sailed near a disputed island in the South China Sea on Sunday, a U.S. defense official said, marking the second such operation since President Trump took office.

The Japan-based USS Stethem, an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer, sailed within 12 miles of Triton Island, a small landmass in the Paracel Islands chain.

Fox News first reported on the incident, known as a freedom-of-navigation operation, or FONOP.

Triton Island is claimed by China, Vietnam and Taiwan. In May, a U.S. destroyer sailed well within 12 miles of Mischief Reef, a man-made island in the Spratly Islands to the south of the Paracels. During Sunday’s operation, a Chinese warship tailed the USS Stethem, Fox News reported, although it is unclear how close the ship came to the American vessel.

The 12-mile line is the internationally recognized distance that separates the shores of a sovereign nation from international waters. The United States has routinely conducted voyages within this 12-mile limit around islands in the South China Sea as a message to countries such as China, Taiwan, Vietnam and the Philippines.

Many of these nations have laid claim to islands in the South China Sea, some of which are no more than tiny strips of sand and reef. The last time the U.S. Navy sailed near Triton Island was in January 2016, when the USS Curtis Wilbur came within 12 miles of its shores. The Pentagon did not notify any of the island’s claimants before that operation.

Capt. Charlie Brown, a spokesman for the U.S. Navy Pacific Fleet, did not confirm the Sunday operation but said in an emailed statement that the Navy routinely conducts FONOPs and that the operations are not “about any one country, nor are they about making political statements.”

“U.S. forces operate in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region on a daily basis, including in the South China Sea,” Brown said. “All operations are conducted in accordance with international law and demonstrate that the United States will fly, sail, and operate wherever international law allows. That is true in the South China Sea as in other places around the globe.”


In the Paracels and Spratlys, China has built up a number of small islands into fully functional military facilities complete with airfields and antiaircraft defenses. The White House, in both the Obama and Trump administrations, has seen the militarization of the South China Sea as a threat to stability in the resource-rich region, where ships from numerous countries have long fished.

First military case in 'Fat Leonard' Navy bribery scandal begins


Navy Times reports, "While he was stationed in Singapore, a U.S. Navy commander ate suckling pigs worth $400 apiece, attended a Gucci fashion show with his wife and enjoyed the services of prostitutes — all courtesy of a Malaysian defense contractor, Navy prosecutors alleged Monday. 

Cmdr. David Alexander Morales is the latest Navy official to be charged in a wide-ranging bribery scandal in which officers allegedly provided ship schedules and important access to Singapore-based businessman Leonard Francis. 

Nicknamed "Fat Leonard" for his large size, Francis was determined to maintain his firm's market share in servicing American warships in Asian ports, a lucrative operation that spanned 25 years and allowed him to overbill the Navy by nearly $35 million. 

The Department of Justice has already filed charges against 25 people, including Francis as well as 20 former and current officers in the Navy. Several, including a retired admiral, have pleaded guilty. 

But Morales, 49, is the first to be charged in the Navy's military court system. His journey effectively began Monday at a preliminary hearing in Norfolk, Virginia, as prosecutors flipped through pages of text messages between him and Francis while itemizing the various gifts Morales allegedly received. 

His attorney said after the hearing that the Navy has a weak case, which federal officials had declined to prosecute. 

"The leftovers are for the Navy," said Frank Spinner, a Colorado-based military defense lawyer. "The sharks have been prosecuted. Now they're going after the minnows." 

Much of the hearing centered on the testimony of Janice Horst, a special agent who conducts criminal investigations for the Department of Defense's Inspector General. She described a friendship between the two men in which Francis paid for expensive dinners, liquor and prostitutes when Morales' wife wasn't around. When she was, Horst said Francis bought the couple tickets to fashion shows or a Julio Iglesias concert. 

Horst said Francis seemed to be grooming Morales to provide him with important information, and that Francis had asked the commander for ship schedules. Morales told Francis that he wouldn't provide any classified information. 

Cmdr. Angela Tang, a Navy prosecutor, said Morales also gave Francis the email of an admiral, introduced him to other contacts and recommended others for Francis to approach. 

She said Morales was "right on the cusp of providing unclassified ship schedules" and "seemed very eager to please Mr. Francis." 

Morales allegedly passed along an envelope to Francis. But Spinner, Morales' defense attorney, pointed out during cross-examination that it was never recovered and its contents remain unknown. 

Spinner also said the Navy lacks hard evidence that Morales engaged with prostitutes beyond claims made by Francis, who has since become a witness for prosecutors. 

Spinner said Morales may have had a close relationship with Francis "but that doesn't mean it crossed the line." 

A Navy captain who oversaw the preliminary hearing will decide in the coming weeks whether to recommend Morales for a court-martial. An admiral will then decide if one should proceed.

Food for thought:  The immoral behavior of what has become of the Navy's officer corps is despicable and I’m sure this case is not going to go anywhere, given that there are far too many senior Pentagon officials [active duty--retired officers--consultant advisors] that have been engaging in fraud against the government for decades; and they protect their best interest, not the interest of tax payers!!

Take my case for instance; once Pentagon officials learned that I’d contacted the Department of Justice Anti-Trust Division, via a Qui Tam petition, to report evidence of my command officials wrongdoings, I was ordered to be discharged from the Navy; at the time I was undergoing chemotherapy treatment for a blood disorder I’d contracted while incarcerated at a DoD prison facility

After my discharge, I'd continued to work closely with a senior DoJ prosecutor, by providing him concrete evidence to support my Qui Tam claim.  A year later, after reaching no resolve, I reached out to him and he informed me that his superiors directed him to “Back off the case!”    Unfortunately, the Navy IG had also informed a DCIS Special Agent that my case was closed and he also backed off his investigation into my fraud claims. 

As long as Congress continues to turn a blind eye to the military's corruption, there is no end to their thievery!!
