BREAKING: Federal Appeals Court Rejects Trump’s Bid To Stop Transgender Troops From Enlisting

Reuters reports:

A federal appeals court in Virginia on Thursday rejected a bid by President Donald Trump’s administration to prevent the U.S. military from accepting transgender recruits starting Jan. 1.

The administration had urged the appeals court to suspend an order by a lower court judge for the armed forces to begin accepting transgender recruits on that date. The administration has said the Jan. 1 start date was causing the armed forces to scramble to revise their policies at the risk of harming military readiness.

In a brief two-paragraph order, the three-judge panel of the Richmond-based 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said it was denying the administration’s request while the appeal proceeds.

    As I’ve said before, this victory coming from the 4th Circuit is possible because Obama was able to appoint seven judges to it.
    Thus the most conservative Circuit court in the country became one of the most liberal.
    Damn shame our side didn’t highlight this more last year, truly is.

      Yah I tried to get that point across to the Liberal purists so many times.

      Please do so; it would be the icing on the Congress-critters’ primaries.

    “The administration has said the Jan. 1 start date was causing the armed forces to scramble to revise their policies at the risk of harming military readiness.”

    Except the Pentagon had originally been aiming for July 1 of 2017 and had already published their new policy and practice guidelines before the third judge in Seattle ruled against the administration.

    Again, what makes Trump’s position all the more galling is that he was a draft dodging coward who used a fake heel spur to get out of serving all while trying to deny braver & better persons from doing so.

  • Gianni

    Oh! Another hit from a Federal Court! That must hurt. I think that weakness in that blood vessel wall just got a bit weaker. More frustration like this could cause it to break wide open. Donnie the Dictator never imagined that he could be stopped cold by the courts. Putin doesn’t have that kind of trouble, does he Donnie?

      It’s why the Trump administration is doing their best to stack the courts with new Trumpian judges.

    I needed good news today! (Of course, I don’t trust the Supreme Court on this.)

  • “. . . 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said it was denying the administration’s request while the appeal proceeds.”

    Because the court thinks they’re going to lose the appeal.

  • ColdCountry

    I needed that smile this morning!

  • Boy Elvis

    I doubt Trump actually gives a shit about this issue. It was just a shiny pony for his evangelical base, to keep it from crumbling any faster than it already is.
