Coast Guard 'will not break faith' with transgender members, leader says

Coast Guard officials reached out personally to their transgender service members to express support after President Trump’s announcement of a new policy barring transgender people in the military, according to Commandant Adm. Paul Zukunft.

“The first thing we did is we reached out to all 13 members of the Coast Guard who have come out” as transgender, Zukunft told attendees at a Center for Strategic and International Studies event in Washington.

Zukunft said he contacted Lt. Taylor Miller, the Coast Guard’s first openly transitioning officer who was featured in a Washington Post article last week.

“If you read that story, Taylor’s family has disowned her. ... And I told Taylor, I will not turn my back. We have made an investment in you and you have made an investment in the Coast Guard and I will not break faith,” Zukunft said.

Ryan shoves his head further up Trump's Posterior: 'It is time for the wall'

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) called for action on President Trump's proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border in a video he tweeted out on Tuesday.

"RT if you agree," he posted on Twitter, along with a video of a border visit he made. "It is time for the wall."


The video shows Speaker Ryan on a visit to the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, where he met with border patrol forces.

"When you see what they're up against, it really gives you even greater respect for what they do. They clearly need more tools and more support to do their jobs effectively," he said.

Tampa Bays coming storm

TAMPA BAY, Fla. — Mark Luther’s dream home has a window that looks out to a world of water. He can slip out the back door and watch dolphins swim by his private dock. Shore birds squawk from nearby nests in giant mangroves.

He said it’s hard to imagine ever leaving this slice of paradise on St. Petersburg’s Bayou Grande, even though the water he adores is starting to get a little creepy.

Over the 24 years since he moved into the house, the bayou has inched up a protective sea wall and crept toward his front door. As sea level rises, a result of global warming, it contributes to flooding in his Venetian Isles neighborhood and Shore Acres, a neighboring community of homes worth as much as $2.5 million, about 70 times per year.

“Why stay?” asked Luther, an oceanographer who knows perfectly well a hurricane could one day shove 15 feet of water into his living room. “It’s just so nice.”
