Tony Perkins: Unelected Judge Ignores Military on Transgender Order

Liberals didn’t mind when former President Barack Obama forced his radical social policies on our military, but they certainly don’t want President Donald Trump rescinding them. So where do they turn? Unelected judges.

That’s what happened Monday, thanks to U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, who made the sweeping decision to keep the White House’s military transgender order from taking effect. Without the benefit of the administration’s data, military advisers, or intelligence reports, Kollar-Kotelly put herself in the position of setting a national security policy with very real consequences for our country.

As a result of her temporary injunction, the entire military will “revert to the status quo,” a dangerous environment where people like Chelsea (Bradley) Manning can serve openly, women can be forced to shower with biological men, and “pregnant males” can apply for maternity leave.

SHE is NOT the Commander-in Chief.

Liberals don't seem to understand the Obama doctrine of presidential authority....
And I quote ----
"Elections have consequences."

They lost. Now, get out of the way.

"Unelected Judge". LOL. You guys crack me up. The rules that dictate checks and balances between the 3 arms of government are all good and gravy until we have an outcome/decision that you don't like.

How can a judge override the commander of the military? The military does not hire people our military is voluntary and if you don't like the rules don't volunteer. A judge can not override a generals order. Isn't the commanders order of no transgender just that?

Because the way our constitution and republic work is that civilians control the military, not vice versa. Hence the whole need for congress to declare war.
