Trump Should Ignore Judge on Transgenders

Bryan Fischer is exactly right — Trump should ignore that judge. You can learn more about the error of judicial supremacy on this page. Here is the opening of Fischer’s above-titled article:

U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly is a lowly U.S. District Court judge in the District of Columbia. She is not the Commander-in-Chief.

Yet she has somehow appointed herself commandant of the entire United States military in an astonishing display of hubris and judicial supremacy. She ruled this week that transgenders must be allowed to serve in the military, overturning the president’s executive order on the matter.

U.S. Senatorial candidate Judge Roy Moore, who knows a thing or two about confronting an out-of-control judiciary, today called for this judge’s impeachment, and of course he is right to do so. But we don’t need to wait that long.

The solution to this stupendous display of judicial overreach is simple: President Donald J. Trump should ignore this judge and her misbegotten opinion and direct the troops under his command – the entire U.S. military – to follow his orders and ignore hers. They report to him, not to her.

The president’s order banning transgender troops from military service was issued to counter President Obama’s unconstitutional executive order allowing them to serve. The reason Obama’s order was flatly unconstitutional is because the Constitution in Article I Section 8 vests Congress – not the president – with the responsibility “To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces.”

In other words, only Congress can allow transgenders to serve in the armed forces. That wasn’t President Obama’s call, and it certainly is not Judge Kollar-Kotelly’s call either. If transvestites are to be allowed to serve, Congress must pass a law allowing it. And Congress has done no such thing. All President Trump has done with his executive order on transgenders is reestablish the rule of law in the military.
