Trump Avoids Winning Transgender Issue Against Biden-Harris
By Cliff Kincaid – August 11, 2020
Tucker Carlson interviewed Terry Schilling on Monday about why the Trump campaign has failed to seize on a winning issue – public opposition to transgenders dominating women’s sports. The Trump campaign is said to believe it’s just too embarrassing to talk about.
Embarrassing or not, it is a winning political issue. Schilling, executive director of the American Principles Project, said, “We surveyed over 7,000 people in the top ten swing states across the country. We found that three-quarters of Americans, including 53 percent of Joe Biden’s own supporters, oppose allowing transgender boys, that is boys that identify as girls, to compete in women’s athletics.”
But taking a stand against transgenderism, a major plank in the Joe Biden-Kamala Harris campaign platform, runs the risk of offending our major intelligence agencies, which eliminate traditional hiring standards in order to hire and promote transgenders.
The Washington (gay) Blade has hailed Senator Harris (D-Calif.) as Joe Biden’s running mate, saying she is a “rising political star who has demonstrated a commitment to the LGBTQ community.” The gay paper declared, “Harris is a relative newcomer to Washington, but her record on LGBTQ rights extends back to her tenure as a district attorney for San Francisco and California attorney general as well as her work during her first term as U.S. senator.”
On her former presidential website, Harris had declared, “Homophobia and transphobia are real in this country, and they’re being fueled by an Administration that openly attacks Americans based on who they are or who they love.” She vowed to “reverse President Trump’s immoral ban on transgender servicemembers in the Armed Forces.”
While banning transgenders from the Armed Forces, the Trump Administration has continued Barack Hussein Obama’s policies of hiring and promoting them in the Intelligence Community.
George W. Draper’s important book, Diversity and Inclusion: What You Don’t Know and Why You Don’t Know It, notes that Obama’s Executive Order 13583, “Establishing a Coordinated Government-wide Initiative to Promote Diversity and Inclusion in the Federal Workforce,” and a follow-up presidential memorandum “Promoting Diversity and Inclusion in the National Security Workforce,” specifically targeted the Intelligence Community.
These executive orders have not been revoked by Trump.
A George Soros-funded organization calling itself the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) held a conference on May 25, 2017, whose sponsors included Amazon, Facebook, Google and the CIA.
The CIA website still features a statement from Obama CIA director John Brennan on the role played by the CIA’s Executive Diversity and Inclusion Council and the Center for Mission Diversity and Inclusion. Brennan’s “CIA Diversity and Inclusion Strategy” recognizes the need to hire “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Individuals.”
While the destruction of women’s sports by men claiming to be women is important and interesting, hiring transgenders as spies, with the potential for sexual blackmail, is a far more serious issue.
One of the worst traitors in American history was the transgender known as Bradley/Chelsea Manning, the former U.S. Army analyst whose sentence for Russian-style espionage was commuted by Obama, after Manning served only 7 years of a 35-year sentence. Manning was a homosexual before deciding he was a woman and changing his name to Chelsea.
In remarks at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, then-CIA Director Mike Pompeo described Manning essentially as an agent of Russia through his association with WikiLeaks, which functions on behalf of Russian and other anti-American interests. Pompeo said, “WikiLeaks walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service. It has encouraged its followers to find jobs at CIA in order to obtain intelligence. It directed Chelsea Manning in her theft of specific secret information. And it overwhelmingly focuses on the United States, while seeking support from anti-democratic countries and organizations.”
Saving women’s sports from transgenders is important. But what about saving the intelligence community from more transgender traitors?
At least one Trump campaign official, Jenna Ellis, the senior legal adviser, has not been afraid to directly confront the issue, at least on one level, referring to Pennsylvania's transgender secretary of health, Dr. Rachel Levine, as a “guy” who poses as a woman.
The problem is that her remarks about the biological differences between the sexes and the facts of life are considered offensive to the transgenders being hired and promoted by the U.S. intelligence establishment, and that Trump’s own acting DNI Richard Grenell signed a statement recognizing “gender identity” as a protected class of people.
Trump made Grenell the “first openly gay DNI and cabinet member in American history,” and Grenell followed up by giving an interview on the intelligence community website highlighting the alleged need to hire and promote LGBTQ individuals, with the “T” standing for transgender.
It’s no wonder that the topic, a winning issue for conservatives, is embarrassing for the Trump campaign. Trump only has himself to blame, and it could spell the difference between losing or winning against Biden-Harris in November.
