During the 2010 debate about gays in the military, LGBT activists kept insisting they only wanted lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender personnel to serve quietly in the military − no special treatment. On the list of promises that Congress should not have believed, this was one of the first to be broken.   . . . Read More

Anyone who doubts how radical the objectives of the Obama administration are, in harmony with LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) Left groups, should take a look at recent maneuverings in the west-coast Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

On July 6, the Ninth Circuit lifted a stay that it had previously imposed on a worldwide injunction issued by District Judge Virginia Phillips in a case brought by the deceptively-named Log Cabin Republicans. . . Read More

On July 22, late on a Friday afternoon, President Barack Obama, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, and Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen signed a piece of paper purporting to “certify” that repeal of the 1993 law regarding gays in the military, usually mislabeled “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” would do no harm to the armed forces. 

As CMR stated in a news release, the timing of this event on a Friday afternoon signaled that the action was nothing to be proud of.  The document signed has no credibility, but it will have harmful consequences.  From this time forward President Obama owns the San Francisco/LGBT military he has created. . . Read More

A previously-undisclosed investigation conducted by the Department of Defense Inspector General strongly suggests that the so-called Pentagon “study” of gays in the military in 2010 was a publicly-funded, pre-scripted production put on just for show. This a link to the 30-page DoD IG report, which a concerned source sent to CMR:

Investigation of Improper Disclosure of For Official Use Only Information from the Comprehensive Review Working Group Draft Report

The report provides even more reasons why the administration cannot in good faith “certify” final repeal of the 1993 law. . . Read More

A gaffe is what happens when a public official prematurely tells the truth.  So it was in April 2011 when the Navy’s Chief of Chaplains, Rear Adm. Mark. L. Tidd, issued a memo titled  “Revision of Chaplain Corps Tier 1 Training.”   The memo, self-described as “not a change” but a “clearer, more concise and up to date articulation,”actually revised earlier training instructions radically, in order to authorize same-sex marriages in Navy and Marine Corps facilities located in states where such unions are legal.  The new policy would take effect following final repeal of the 1993 law regarding homosexuals in the military, which is always mislabeled“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT). . .     Read More
