Transgenders and transsexuals are every bit as human as everyone else, deserve every bit of human compassion, and shouldn’t be discriminated against. But that’s simply not the issue here.
The public’s eagerness to see a general impose order on the White House—with the president’s blessing, no less—represents a potentially dangerous bargain.
If using the bathroom corresponding to your chromosomes while on base and paying for your own cosmetic alterations is too great of a sacrifice, the military life may not be for you.
Military service is a privilege, not a right. And the military has an obligation only to admit and retain soldiers who make it more effective at fighting wars.
Progressives’ arguments in favor of transgender soldiers are drenched in self-righteousness—but they are also inane and dangerous.
I recently received a copy of the new ‘Tier Three Transgender Training’ materials that the U.S. Army is now using in mandatory training for all soldiers.
If Defense Secretary James Mattis cannot persuade Trump to request additional funds for the U.S. military, then perhaps he can convince him to reprioritize existing funding instead.
The last 25 years of urban unrest in America, and around the world, show how rapidly domestic tranquility can collapse when law enforcement steps aside or is overwhelmed.
The Trump administration is a lot closer to conventional foreign policy orthodoxy than many of his political enemies thought or his supporters desired.
During the Obama era, our military maneuvers were transparent to a fault. We need the element of surprise when conducting operations overseas.
Our defense budget is a sieve for congressional pet projects, special interest contracts, and social engineering programs. Pumping more fuel into the tank is little use if you don’t patch the holes.
Jim Webb has been pushed out of an award for pointing out that women aren’t as well-suited for combat as men. Apparently some female soldiers can’t handle ideas they don’t like.
The question we must ask now is: ‘Will the presence of a woman in combat negatively affect an infantry unit?’ This is the only question that matters in this debate.
Federal law currently bars James Mattis from taking the job of defense secretary. Congress should change that.
To Marines, Gen. James Mattis is the finest of our tribal elders. The rest of the world, very soon, will know how truly gifted he is.
The nomination of Jim Webb for Department of Defense would, unlike Rudy Guiliani or John Bolton, be aligned with the best of Trump’s foreign policy views.
