Why our cultural rot matters regarding our national security

You know it and I know it.

The whole "transgendered" push is utter madness.

There are two genders, make and female. Anyone who says otherwise is being infantile and delusional. Whoever made up that "cis" term, not to mention all the "ze"-type pronouns, is operating at the level of a second-grader at best.

Five years ago, the notion of transgendered bathrooms seemed silly and snickers-inducing to effectively all who had heard of it. Now it is the stuff of NBA boycotts and Justice Department intrusions into state-level policy.

But now it is putting us in mortal peril:

The story is now that the Pentagon has given the nod for transgender troops to receive gender alteration surgery to better fit their personal identity. According to the Daily Mail, things can get pretty expensive.
However, only active service members will be eligible for gender-reassignment surgery which can cost anywhere between $7,000 and $50,000 per operation, as experts say the move could cost up to $8.4 million a year, Circa Politics reports.
While this may seem like great news for the transgendered, it's never enough for the social justice community. The National Center for Transgender Equality believes that this can only really be a good thing if veterans and their families can get the surgeries as well.
For what purpose, or how this further benefits our military, I'm not sure. What I can see is people signing up for the surgery, then discovering the world of the military is not a place of safe spaces, and identity politics. In fact, they will discover it's the opposite.
What worries me is that instead of conforming to the world they signed up for, they will complain and spark activists and organizations into making even more changes to the military that further cater to the feelings, and emotions of soldiers, turning them into the whimpering, easily offended, and highly emotional people you find on college campuses and activist groups.
If you don't think that the social justice community will attempt this, or have no chance of succeeding, I'll remind you that nothing is safe from the social justice agenda. Infiltrating, and changing is what they do.
Furthermore, the money being used for this procedure isn't coming out of thin air.
"The DOD is so under budget, so where is the money coming from? They need to prioritize the funds for guys that are in distress, and need it," says veteran and Sgt. Phillip McChulloch.
Our military is what stands between this nation's security and well being, and a world that would love to do some very awful things to it. Our might is a deterrent. The threat that we may come knocking keeps much of the world in line. Should that same military find itself in the same position as colleges, businesses, and organizations consistently beholden to the social justice agenda, then that powerful wall of force will crumble.
According to Army Col. Don Bartholomew, it already is.
"The military has become an institution for social experiments and, as a result, the military has undergone a number of changes to regulations with regard to women in combat, transgender rights and other issues," Bartholomew said. "None of these P.C. actions were combat-effective or readiness-driven. In fact, the opposite is happening. Deployability, readiness and morale are all adversely affected."

Just what we don't need at a time like this:

RUSSIA is holding a massive evacuation drill for more than 40million people to prepare for nuclear war.
More than 200,000 emergency services personnel and soldiers will use 50,000 pieces of equipment during the massive civil defence exercise.
The former Soviet nation is ramping up fears over nuclear war and blaming the West for the unsettling possibility of a conflict.
As international tension builds following attacks in Syria, Russian state officials are preparing terrified citizens for a nuclear war – which they say would be started by America.
Today’s exercise is being run by EMERCOM, Russia’s Emergencies Ministry. 
Civil Defence Department director Oleg Manuilov told Interfax: "Training will be held from October 4 to 7 and will be attended by more than 40 million people, more than 200 thousand professionals rescue units and 50 thousand pieces of equipment."
This follows the suspension of the weapons-grade plutonium disposal deal between Russia and post-America, as well as suspension of bilateral communications about Syria, as well as large-scale Russia-China war games in the South China Sea in September, as well as drills involving 12,500 Russian troops, fighter jets and anti-aircraft missiles in Crimea.

It also follows 31 unsafe and / or unprofessional interactions the US Navy has experienced with Iran so far this year, as well as three missile tests by that nation in the last year.

It also follows the fifth and most powerful North Korean nuclear-weapon test a few weeks ago.

This points up the counterproductive nature of compartmentalization of the challenges facing this gravely imperiled country into "social issues," national security issues and economic issues.

Everything starts with the so-called "social issues." A nation that can't even come together to say, "There are only two genders; case closed," let alone denounce the marginalization of, and making legal trouble for, Christians who insist on adhering to a definition of marriage considered basic throughout the world throughout history until less than a decade ago, let alone discontinue funding to an organization that murders its fetal citizens and sells their organs is a nation that won't have the will to defend itself against mortal threats.

We could, at this juncture, explore the question of whether either of the two viable presidential candidates has any interest in restoring sanity to this situation, but I doubt that it matters much. The next president may well be handed on day one a crisis too terrifying to contemplate  that transpires between now and the third week in January.

If you think post-American life is grotesque now . . .
