New York Times Opinion By Bill McKibben: Trumpism Eternal?

                The New York Times, otherwise known as “The Truth,” recently published an op-ed by Bill McKibben, in which McKibben soberly and rationally considered the possible effects of President Trump’s policies on global warming.
                He began by stating: “President Trump’s environmental onslaught will have immediate, dangerous effects…” His “environmental onslaught?” He is considering backing away from some of the more economically devastating new regulations on energy use and production, yes…and maybe easing a punitive restriction or two on mining and coal companies. Mr. McKibben, however, makes it sound like Trump’s personally spewing agent orange into Central Park and plowing down the cherry trees around the Reflecting Pool… that he thinks could be put to better use housing nuclear waste or raw sewage. One congers up an image of a crazed president Trump, in the arctic, frantically whacking baby seals over the head with a nine-iron while shouting, “Melt, damn it! Melt!” at the remaining ice shield.
                A bit later in his scribbling he says that Trump’s policies will have their greatest effect on “Real people (the poorest and most vulnerable people).” I’m guessing Mr. Bill doesn’t fall into that category, but, ironically enough, quite a few Trump supporters do. Many of those in Appalachia, for example, coldly and calculatedly thrown out of work due solely to liberal’s desire to shut down mining and extraction industries, were demonstrably vulnerable and are now poor.
                A few paragraphs after claiming Trump’s “onslaught” will have “immediate” and dangerous consequences, McKibben states, “The effects will be felt not immediately but over decades and centuries and milleniums (sic).” Consistency is overrated, anyway. (In fact, it may well now be frowned upon in college composition classes as a relic of regressive, white, patriarchal, Western Civilization).
                McKibben avers that Trump’s policies will accelerate the melting of ice in the polar regions, ominously stating: “The nations that will be submerged won’t sink beneath the waves on his watch, but they will sink.” Nations? I thought Obama stopped the rising of the seas.
                He then claims, “It’s time itself that he’s stealing from us…” (Did he filch your Rolex?). Yet, in conclusion, he contends: ”But even when we vote him out of office, Trumpism will persist, a dark stratum in the planet’s geological history. In some awful sense, his term could last forever.”
                Forever? And I was worried he was going to be impeached.

Girl With Toy Water Pistol Expelled From School

                Sara Nichols, a 16-year-old student at Alabama’s Prattville High School, has been expelled for a full year for possession of a toy water pistol. The Montgomery Advertiser reported that she was given the water pistol by a fellow student. She put it in her backpack and then put the backpack in the back seat of her car. Another student observed the handover and informed school officials. In addition, cameras on the school’s grounds captured footage of the taboo toy transfer, and Nichols was subsequently called to the office to account for her actions.
                She confessed to having the toy inside a backpack in the rear seat of her vehicle. The Autauga County Board of Education banned her from school property and all extra-curricular activities, and expelled her not just from Prattville High, but from all schools within the county.
                In related news, another Prattville High student was later discovered to have a Swiss Army knife in an emergency kit in his car’s trunk.

                He is scheduled to be executed Thursday.

Giant Bunny Dies On United Airlines Flight

                It is probably an understatement to say that these aren’t the best of times for United Airlines, as the skies have been anything but friendly to the carrier. Still dealing with fallout from altercations between employees and passengers, as well as a scorpion falling onto a passenger’s head on one of its flights, the company received more bad news recently.
                In what sounds like a Monty Python sketch, an expensive, giant rabbit passed away under mysterious circumstances on one of United’s Boeing 767s just days ago. “Simon,” a three-foot-long bunny thought to be destined to become the world’s largest rabbit, expired in the plane’s cargo hold while on its way to a new “celebrity” owner, according to reports.
                Annette Edwards, former Playboy model and the bygone bunny’s breeder, said that Simon was perfectly healthy when placed in the cargo hold. “He was fit as a fiddle. I’ve sent rabbits round the world, nothing like this has happened,” she stated.
                Simon was found dead shortly after the plane touched-down at O’Hare, the self-same airport where a doctor was forcefully dragged off a United Airlines plane a few days previous, incurring various injuries.  Ms. Edwards said that the animal was given a check-up by a veterinarian three hours prior to the flight and was pronounced hale and hardy. She remarked: “Something very strange has happened and I want to know what,” adding, “The client who bought Simon is very famous. He’s upset.”
                Simon was a ten-month-old Continental Giant rabbit, and was on pace to out-grow his father Darius, who, at 4-feet-four-inches long, is currently the world’s largest bunny. These animals eat like, well, rabbits, and cost many thousands of dollars a year to keep.
                The airline faces a legal claim from Simon’s recent purchaser and Ms. Edwards. A company spokesperson said: “We are reviewing the matter.”
                The company seems to be going down the rabbit hole, and needs to pull something out of a hat to turn things around. Seems like they could use a talisman. Maybe a lucky rabbit’s foot.

                On second thought, never mind.

American Churches Dispensing With Tradition

                Churches across America are removing their denominations from their signage and advertising, and many are also dispensing with the word “church” itself. For example, Trinity Baptist Church in Maplewood, Minnesota has now become simply “Lifepoint.” Maple Grove (Minnesota) Evangelical Free Church just morphed into “The Grove.” Bethel (also Minnesota) Assembly Of God church is now “Bethel’s Rock.” The First Lutheran Church in White Bear Lake (yes, Minnesota again) now self-identifies as the “Community of Grace.” As Saturday Night Live’s ‘church lady’ might have said, “Well, isn’t that special.”
                Churches have taken a cue from the business world, and are rapidly “re-branding” in an attempt to attract new customers congregants, be more inclusive, and cast off any appearance of old-fashioned fuddy-duddyness. Many religious leaders aver that the majority of younger people don’t have a clue as to the difference between a Baptist and a Lutheran, for example, and are “suspicious” of any terms that may be perceived as in any way exclusionary. In point-of-fact, an Arizona marketing firm recently found that churches with denominational names were nearly three times more likely to be seen as outdated and rigid. Almost two-thirds of Baptist churches in Minnesota and Iowa no longer have the word “Baptist” on their doors, according to the executive minister at “Converge North Central,” previously known as the Baptist General Conference, reports the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
                There may be more than one reason these new names sound like nightclubs or condo developments: apparently, some church leaders have asked local developers what other names they had considered, since they did the market research, stated the director of church expansion for Converge North Central. He added, “You want a name you can turn into a verb or noun. And you want a web domain available for it,” according to the Star-Tribune.

                As someone once said, “The times, they are-a-changing.”

                “Welcome, all, to The Sanctuary, an all-inclusive spiritual center for those wishing to worship without being the victim of behavioral restraints or systemic white privilege. I have some exciting news for all of you, next Sunday we will be celebrating Prince via our ‘Purple Reign campaign for tolerance!’ The Prince of Peace had nothing on this guy, am I right? What a singular artist! We will be hearing some of his classic songs like Do Me Baby, Pussy Control, Asswhuppin’ in a Trunk, F-ck D Press, Horny Pony, Mad Sex, Me Touch Myself, Orgasm, Vagina and We Can F-ck. Damn straight!
 “And, the following Sunday is Transgender Variety Day, sponsored by Heinz™!  We’ll be consecrating the 57 or so different genders that we all now acknowledge exist in Christendom. All transgenders attending will receive, on a pro-rata basis, 100% of the proceeds from that service’s offering plates!

                “One last thing before today’s sermon, ‘Why Trump Will Burn in Hell,’: remember, there will be a special program at The Sanctuary Wednesday evening, downstairs in the cafeteria. It is titled ‘Sharia Law: Friend, Not Foe.’ I know, right? So great! And now for the welcoming, inclusive, tolerant sermon. Oh, and go Vikings!”

North Korea, Cuba Have Obesity Under Control

            Aspiring English politician and two-time Olympic rowing medalist James Cracknell was recently being interviewed by Sky News when he brought up the subject of obesity. Cracknell cited North Korea and Cuba as examples of countries that had obesity under control.
Well, famine and death are famously effective weight-control methods. This is like citing World War II era Germany and Russia as exemplars in the prevention of overpopulation. (Malthus would’ve been a big fan of Hitler and Stalin).
Crackpot Cracknell then stated: “See, they are quite controlling on behavioral change—you have to get people to buy into it.” It’s easy to get people to “buy into it” when you deprive them of virtually all forms of nourishment. Similarly, behavior-modification is likely to be quite successful in a totalitarian state like the Hermit Kingdom where passing gas within a three-mile radius of the Dear Leader will get you executed by salvos from anti-aircraft guns.
Rumor has it that Mr. Cracknell plans to run for Parliament in 2020 as a member of the Conservative Party. I thought conservatives wanted government to exert less control, not put its vast nose into every aspect of our lives like a Michelle-Obama-led Stasi.

Wild Boars Attack ISIS Terrorists

                A herd of rampaging wild boars assaulted an Islamic State position near Kirkuk Sunday, killing three and injuring another five, a local sheikh told the Times of London. The terrorists had been hiding in a field of reeds, preparing to attack a group of local tribesman who had formed an anti-ISIS militia, when the pissed-off porkers set upon them.
                At least one report says that the extremists had been trying to remove the beasts, known for their ferocity, sending them into a frenzied rage.
                Sadly, all reports indicate that ISIS eventually “took revenge” on the freedom-fighting hogs.
                That has to be the worst nightmare an Islamic terrorist can have, many thousands of pounds of outraged pork stampeding towards him!
                The U.S. should enlist these brave warrior-piggies in its armed forces. There should be a warthog wing, boar brigade, and a hog squad. “Private Porky reporting for duty, Sergeant Swine, Sir!”

                “This little piggy went to market,
    This little piggy stayed home,
    This little piggy had roast beef,
    This little piggy had none.
    And this little piggy went…’wee, wee, wee!’ and kicked the shit out of ISIS all the way to Homs!”

DNC Chairman Says Every Democrat Should Be Pro-Choice

                 New Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez stopped in Nebraska last week, as head of the DNC’s “Unity Tour.” Now we know what he means by “unity.” On Friday, he made this remarkable statement: “Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her health. That is not negotiable and should not change city by city or state by state.”
                Every Democrat must be pro-choice, no Democrat can be pro-life? And every American should be for abortion-rights, too? That’s “not negotiable,” Tom? That’s what it means to be an American? The shared “value” of being open to killing our babies?
                Try to grasp the lunacy. The head of the DNC says you shouldn’t have the choice whether or not to be… pro-choice.
                That tells you everything you need to know about today’s Democratic Party.
                                                   **********************************

                And remember, intolerance will not be tolerated! We will not include the non-inclusive!

The University Of Wisconsin And "The Problem Of Whiteness"

                The University of Wisconsin is offering a course titled “The Problem of Whiteness” at its Madison campus. The class, part of the “Critical Whiteness Studies” curriculum, will cover institutional racism and “what it means to be #woke.” The course will also attempt to offer solutions to the “problem of whiteness.” The class description reads: “We will ask what an ethical white identity entails…and consider the journal Race Traitor’s motto, ‘treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity.’”
                WTF? I mean, what the effing eff?!
                Calling Race Traitor- whatever it is- a journal seems a little too legitimizing to me, rather like calling Rachel Maddow a journalist, or Amy Schumer a comedienne. And the motto, “treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity,” is akin to stating, “betrayal of logic is fealty to reason.”
                The class is being taught by Damon Sajnani, a radical assistant professor at the school, who believes America is a terrorist state. Ironically, “Professor D,” as he is known, hails from the Great White North (Canada), and is white himself. It must be admitted, however, that he is a bit of a renaissance man, as, aside from his professorial duties, he is a rapper and also runs “Justus League Records,” a group calling for revolution. Their website brands them as “The Dope Poet Society,” and as “Hiphop Revolutionaries in the struggle to save the world.”  You had me at “Hiphop Revolutionaries.”
                Professor D and the University of Wisconsin (and most universities in the country now) are certainly themselves textbook examples of institutional racism, and of “what it means to be #ajoke,” albeit a very bad- and dangerous- one.
                                            ******************************************

                The UW-Madison has also recently become the latest institute of higher learning to install free feminine hygiene products in some of the men’s bathrooms on campus. They’re on a roll! Higher education at its finest!

The Times Tries "Trickeration"

                Most of the New England Patriots football team attended the traditional congratulatory White House ceremony marking their recent victory in Super Bowl 51, though, predictably, most of the mainstream media attention was focused on the relative few who didn’t attend due to their supposed opposition to the policies of Republican president Donald Trump.
                The New York Times (i.e. “The Truth”) merrily tweeted out a pair of photos purporting to show the difference in attendance between the team’s 2015 visit to Barack Obama’s White House, and this year’s excursion to Trump’s Pale Casa. The pictures made it look like many more of the Patriots went to be feted at the 2015 gathering then deigned to attend this year’s honoring.
                However, the Patriot organization itself corrected the Time’s attempted deceipt. The club stated that the photos “lack context.” The team tweeted, “Facts: In 2015, over 40 football staff were on the stairs. In 2017, they were seated on the South Lawn.” The brace of photos both encompassed the same area. Those on the stairs could be seen, those on the South Lawn were not visible.
                So much for “the truth.” The paper of record’s motto should be, “All the ruse that fits, we print.”

                Trick or tweet?


    Shameful.

Maxine Waters' World

                  Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) led chants of “impeach 45!” at last Saturday’s Tax March in Washington, D.C. Her reason(s) for believing the President should be impeached? “I don’t respect this president. I don’t trust this president. He’s not working in the best interests of the American people,” the Congresswoman said. She doesn’t care for him, therefore Trump should be impeached. Either the not-so-Gentle Lady from California doesn’t realize that personal opinions and groundless accusations do not rise to the level of impeachable offenses, or she doesn’t care about that, either. It is her own “reasoning” that is eminently impeachable. She added, “I will fight every day until he is impeached.” That seems like an effective use of time and tax-payer’s money. Oddly enough, when Democrats engage in this type of unreasonable behavior, it isn’t branded “extreme,” or “obstructionist,” or as contributing to gridlock.
                Waters communicated her willingness to impeach Trump just days after he took office, stating that her “greatest desire is to lead [Trump] right into impeachment.” She’s frequently repeated those sentiments since. In March, Ms. Waters stated that the President should be impeached if evidence emerged that he colluded with the Russian government. Shortly after that she tweeted, “get ready for impeachment.” Oops. With Russia and the U.S. practically on the verge of war, I wouldn’t be holding my breath on that one, Maxine.
                Waters’ disregard for her own country’s legal traditions, such as the concept of ‘innocent until proven guilty,’ and trial by a jury of one’s peers, apparently knows no bounds. Upon hearing rumors of alleged harassment of female co-workers by Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, Congressperson Waters promptly responded: “This really is a sexual harassment enterprise. They need to go to jail. Bill O’Reilly needs to go to jail.” Okay, just throw him- them?- in the slammer now. Go directly to jail, do not pass go, Congresswoman Waters has so decreed. She doesn’t like him/them you see, and that’s just how democracy works, right? She more recently averred that there’s “something psychologically wrong with Bill O’Reilly.” Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!
Funny thing, though, when legitimate articles of impeachment were drawn up against President Bill Clinton as a result of his illicit oval office/orifice trysts with a certain blue-dressed intern, and his subsequent decision to lie about the sordid affair while under oath, the good congresswoman was outraged. She said she was, “disappointed in the raw, unmasked, and unbridled hatred and meanness that drives this impeachment coups d’etat,” and insisted President Clinton wasn’t guilty of the “trumped up charges.”
All these years later, Ms. Waters, ironically, is guilty of “trumped up charges”…against Trump.
Here are her remarkable remarks of December 18, 1998, from the House floor as regards the Clinton impeachment:
“Mr. Speaker and members, how must our American soldiers feel to have their commander-in-chief under attack while they are engaged in battle? They have the right to feel betrayed and undermined. Today, we are here in the people’s House debating the partisan impeachment of the president of the United States of America, while the commander-in-chief is managing a crisis and asking world leaders for support. This is, indeed, a Republican coup d’etat.
“Mr. Speaker and members, Americans all, the Republicans will couch this extremist, radical anarchy in pious language which distorts the Constitution and the rule of law.
“Bill and Hillary Clinton are the real targets, and the Republicans are the vehicles being used by the right-wing Christian Coalition extremists to direct and control our culture.
“The rule of law has been violated in denying the president notice of charges, by the abuse of power in the collecting of so-called “evidence” and the denial of the presumption of innocence.
“President Clinton is not guilty of the trumped up charges presented in these four articles of impeachment. Yes, Bill Clinton is guilty of certain indiscretions in his private life. However, he did not commit high crimes and misdemeanors.
“Rather, the president is guilty of being a populous leader who opened up government and access to the poor, to minorities, to women and to the working class.
“President Bill Clinton is guilty of not being owned by the good old Southern boys or the good old Eastern establishment.
“President Clinton is guilty of being smart enough to outmaneuver the Republicans in the budget negotiations, electoral politics and the development and implementation of the people’s agenda.
“Ladies and gentlemen, I am an African-American woman. I’m accustomed to having to fight and struggle for fairness and justice.
“Ken Starr, I know and recognize abuse of power when I see it. You are guilty.
“However, I am greatly disappointed in the raw, unmasked, unbridled hatred and meanness that drives this impeachment coups d’etat, this unapologetic disregard for the voice of the people.
“My Republican friends, what you do here today will long be remembered and recorded in history as one of the most despicable actions ever taken by the Congress of the United States of America.
“I dare the Republicans of this House to allow themselves to move just one inch, and give me and my colleagues the opportunity to vote for an alternative. I dare you to be fair. I dare you to allow us to vote for censure.
I yield back the balance of my time.”
How must American soldiers “feel to have their commander-in-chief under attack” by Waters and others in this time of crisis and war? “The rule of law has been violated in denying the president notice of charges, by the abuse of power in the collecting of so-called ‘evidence,’ and the denial of the presumption of innocence.” Sounds exactly like what Waters and the Democrats- and media- are doing right now. She’d love nothing more than to be able to bring off a Democratic coup d’etat. Her current statements on Trump constitute the Mother Of All Hypocrisies (MOAH).
 It is abundantly clear that this Waters still doesn’t run deep.

North Korea Threatens Preemptive Strike "Wiping Out" U.S. Mainland

                Say one thing for Kim Jong un and his Hermit Kingdom: he/it makes the most vile, preposterous and outrageous threats in the most entertaining manner possible. Inadvertently.
                North Korea has been ever more frequently and aggressively thumbing its nose at world opinion in its now frantic attempts to develop a viable nuclear weapons program with which it can terrorize South Korea, Japan, and the United States, among others. Therefore, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence recently matter-of-factly stated that the “era of strategic patience” with North Korea is over.
                This led to the North’s state-run Rodong Sinmun newspaper publishing the government’s ‘official’ response to Pence’s assertion: “In the case of our super-mighty preemptive strike being launched, it will completely and immediately wipe out not only U.S. imperialists’ invasion forces in South Korea and its surrounding areas but the U.S. mainland and reduce them to ashes.”
                Memo to the Ultra-Corpulent One: Your “super-mighty” preemptive strike is going to “completely and immediately” wipe out the U.S. mainland? At minimum, that would require your missiles not blowing up on the launching pad. Suggest using your “intimidating-superpowers” to prevent massive numbers of your comrades from dying of starvation, instead. Otherwise your “stupendously-obnoxious” behavior and “overpowering-odiousness” is going to get you “muscularly-killed.”

                Just being “indomitably-truthful,” Dear-Leader.

No, Canada!

                Society has lost its moorings. It is literally impossible for a rational, sane mind to fathom how we arrived at a place where we meekly put up with the most preposterous statements, and declare insanity to be the truth.
                Latest case in point? Canada is considering Bill C-16, which, if passed, would officially brand the acknowledgement of any innate biological differences between males and females as “hate speech.” If it does, it would then literally be a crime to recognize reality in the Great White North. Measures making it mandatory for others to use a person’s preferred gender pronoun when referring to that person have already been approved in places like New York City. It will probably soon be against the law to even use the words “men” and/or “women.”
                If there were no biological differences between men and women…there would be no men and women. No people, period. This is a remarkably easy- and important- concept to grasp. Who’s anti-science? Who likes diversity?
                Perhaps Adam just identified as a male and Eve was gender-queer. I bet, truth be told, they were both “non-binary.” At least that’s how Genesis will be taught in the future.

                If we have one.

                Say no to Bill C-16, Canucks…and yes to John 3:16.
                                                ******************************
                (Update- 6/16/2017: Canada passed Bill C-16 Thursday, June 15th, making it illegal to use the "wrong" gender pronouns. Going forward, Canadians who do not subscribe to progressive gender theory could be accused of hate crimes, jailed, fined, and made to take anti-bias training. The bill now only needs to be approved by the royal House of Commons to become the law of the land).

Liberal Media Wallowing In Their Own Hate Speech, Ignorance

                Progressive mainstream news outlets- I apologize for the redundancy- are now largely (and openly) insulting Trump voters, calling them names, and urging Democrats to write them off as a permanent loss.
                Frank Rich, the spectacularly unhinged former New York Times columnist who now scribbles for New York Magazine, illustrates this point when he derides what he terms “Hillbilly Chic.” Rich believes “pandering” to Trump voters is “another counterproductive detour into liberal guilt, self-flagellation, and political correctness,” and asks, “Might the time have at last come for Democrats to weaponize their anger instead of swallowing it?”
                “Counterproductive detours into guilt, self-flagellation, and political correctness” are the defining characteristics of (modern-day) liberalism. “Might the time have at last come for Democrats to weaponize their anger instead of swallowing it?” That’s rich, Frank. Democrats have been weaponizing their anger for decades now, while expecting their constituents to swallow anything they say, no matter how outrageous. It has been Republicans who’ve historically played nice and swallowed their anger. This changed when Trump came around, and is a large part of the reason the left hates his guts. “I mean, the nerve! He talked back to us!”
                Referring to Democrats, Rich says that “the party is a wreck.” He also believes Trump voters are now synonymous with the GOP, but states: “That makes it all the more a fool’s errand for Democrats to fudge or abandon their own values to cater to the white-identity politics of the hard-core, often self-sabotaging Trump voters who helped drive the country into a ditch on Election Day. If we are free to loathe Trump, we are free to loathe his most loyal voters, who have put the rest of us at risk.” Free to hate? Hmm.
                Salon’s Conor Lynch says that when Democrats examine the election results they see “Large numbers of American people voting against their apparent interests because of their ignorance and cultural backwardness.” But, wait, there’s more! “After decades of watching millions of Americans vote for right-wing charlatans who advocated economic policies that serve the wealthy and screw everyone else, some liberals have basically given up on appealing to these perceived yokels, who seem to care more about criminalizing abortion and hoarding guns than obtaining health care and decent wages. They are dumb, credulous and often intolerant; so why should we—progressive, rational, forward-thinking liberals—sympathize or try to reason with them? Let them lose their health care; maybe they’ll learn something this time around (though we all know they won’t).”
                That is one of the most telling- and frightening- statements I’ve ever read, preposterous even for today’s inflexible, and astoundingly monolithic mainstream media. The Democrats see “large numbers of American people voting against their apparent interests because of their ignorance and cultural backwardness?” Talk about intolerance and hate speech! Where’s the nearest safe-room?! I demand that Conor Lynch and Salon be silenced immediately! Just maybe, Mr. Lynch, these “yokels” believe they are voting in their own self- interest, and you are too biased and close-minded to see it. More likely yet, they may believe that they are voting in the best interest of the country as a whole, irrespective of their own self-interest. That’s what has to happen if a democracy is to long survive. The Founders cautioned that a democratic republic is only fit for a moral people, and is “entirely unsuited to any other,” and this is exactly what they meant. People who vote not simply for their own benefit, but for what is best for the polity.
                Quaint beliefs like that are anathema to today’s Democratic Party, a party that thrives only on class warfare, divisiveness, resentment and entitlement.
                A party that is entirely unsuitable to a democratic republic.

   And any semblance of morality.

University Of Wisconsin Employees Sue School For Not Paying For Gender Reassignment Surgeries

                Two “transgender” University of Wisconsin employees filed a federal lawsuit Friday against the University system, its board of regents, and its insurers over refusal to pay for their gender “reassignment” surgeries. The ACLU is assisting with the suit, which would force the state’s taxpayers to pay for the removal of the employee’s penises- and various other costs attendant to “gender reassignment surgery,” according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
                One of the claimants paid for the surgery out of pocket and subsequently sought to be reimbursed through insurance, but was denied. The other decided not to have his sex change because his insurance wouldn’t pay for the procedure(s).
                Their lawsuit claims that the University of Wisconsin’s health insurance plans “single out transgender employees for unequal treatment by categorically depriving them of all medical care for gender dysphoria,” which they claim is a serious medical condition codified in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders and International Classification of Diseases. Interestingly enough, homosexuality was classified as a mental illness as recently as a few decades ago, but gays and lesbians fought hard for its removal from the list. Transgenders, however- many of whom are gay- appear to be insistent that they are victims of “gender dysphoria,” an insidious disorder- disease?- that they have no control over. Hmmm.
                Shannon Andrews, who paid for “her” surgery out of pocket, said the following in a statement obtained by the Journal Sentinel: “Many people can relate to paying into an insurance plan only to be told that the treatment they need is not covered,” and described the state’s decision not to pay for sex changes as “clearly discrimination.” So, surely those “many people” Andrews referred to who’ve been told by their insurers that the treatment plan(s) they need aren’t covered are also the victims of discrimination, correct Ms. Andrews? Or are you going to deny that? If they are, then the transgendered haven’t been “singled out,” have they?
                We are rapidly careening towards a time when no one will be held responsible for anything, and any and all behaviors- even the most perverse and deviant- will not only be seen as acceptable, but lauded and subsidized. “Polyamorous Pride!” and “Incest is Best!” will be the P.C. phrases of the (not so distant) future. (Unless we’re all married to A.I. sexbots by then. But, never fear, I’m sure there will soon be a vast panoply of kinky A.I. options to accommodate any and all fetishes).
Bestiality? Hey, I suffer from species dysphoria, and I think my university/health plan/neighbors/countrypersons should pay for my species reassignment surgeries!
Whether one has had “Reassignment” surgery or not, it takes balls to make demands like these.

Notre Dame Students Try To Muzzle Pence Commencement Speech

                 Solid, stable, mild-mannered Vice-President Mike Pence has been chosen to be the University of Notre Dame’s commencement speaker later this spring. This prompted a pair of the school’s seniors to launch a campaign protesting the selection. Immane Mondane told the Observer, Notre Dame’s student newspaper, “For me personally, [Pence] represents the larger Trump administration. For many people on our campus, it makes them feel unsafe to have someone who openly is offensive but also demeaning of their humanity and of their life and of their identity.”
                Mike Pence makes you feel unsafe? Unless you detest calm, sane Christians, that would be an impossibility. Someone “who openly is offensive,” and also “demeaning of their humanity and of their life and of their identity?” Did I miss something somewhere along the line?
                Mondane told the Observer she hopes the campaign encourages students to speak up for their rights. “It’s not even a matter of feeling like they have been silenced—they have been silenced on our campus and in our country.” WTF??!! It’s Pence you are trying to silence, to prevent from speaking at your campus, hypocritical doofuses. As is the case with almost all conservatives on almost all college campuses, you foolish frat-boys and sophomoric sorority sisters.
                Kids on college campuses are taught to tolerate- indeed celebrate- any form of sexuality, any sexual orientation, any possible gender identity, any “version” of truth. They are simultaneously taught to be endlessly open-minded, “pro-choice” as regards abortion, and welcoming and inclusive to those Islamists who would convert, enslave or kill them, and who believe in stoning homosexuals and adulterers.
                Yet these same individuals “feel unsafe” if anyone, especially a white Christian male, has the audacity to potentially express differing viewpoints.
                It certainly makes me feel unsafe, and “feel” that the future of this country is “unsafe,” when I hear such wildly hypocritical, pathetic and insane assertions from someone such as Mondane.

National Trust, Cadbury Drop "Easter" From Annual Egg Hunt

                National Trust, a nature and environmental conservation charity based in the United Kingdom, has held a popular annual Easter Egg hunt for a decade now, an event that has hitherto been known as the Easter Egg Trail. This year, however, the organization has decided to re-brand the proceedings as the Great British Egg Hunt. They added a word, but something’s still missing. Oh yeah, they took “Easter” out of the Easter Egg quest. Why?
                Cadbury, the chocolate manufacturer, sponsors the event. The company explained that it wanted to appeal to non-Christians. According to the Daily Telegraph, the company stated: “We invite people from all faiths and none to enjoy our seasonal treats.”
                The Archbishop of York, Dr. John Sentamu, was highly critical of the decision, pointing out that the company’s founder, John Cadbury, was a devout Christian. “The Cadburys were Great Quaker industrialists. If people visited Birmingham today in the Cadbury World, they will discover how Cadbury’s Christian faith influenced his industrial output. He built houses for all his workers, he built a church, he made provision for schools. It is obvious that for him Jesus and justice were two sides of the one coin. To drop Easter from Cadbury’s Easter Egg Hunt in my book is tantamount to spitting on the grave of Cadbury.”
                Cadbury de-emphasized the word Easter on their regular chocolate egg packaging last year, moving it to the back of the package and replacing it with “Milk Chocolate Eggs.”

                It is clear the company can see the proverbial writing on the wall, and also more profits in the future. The death of Christianity in Europe and the concurrent rise of Islam means that the decision to abandon the term “Easter” likely won’t leave Cadbury with  egg on its face…at least from a business perspective.

Doctor Says He Became An Abortion Provider To "Exercise Christian Compassion"

                 Dr. Willie Parker, board chair of “Physicians for Reproductive Health,” and abortion provider extraordinaire, stated that he wants to take the moral high ground back from the pro-life movement. He made this bizarre and offensive declaration in an interview with that pillar of journalistic integrity, Rolling Stone magazine.
                Apparently, Dr. Parker has a new book out, “Life’s Work: A Moral Argument for Choice,” in which he wrote that he decided to become an abortion provider to “exercise Christian compassion not by proxy, but with my own capable hands.” WTF? Doc, since when is extinguishing innocent, newly budding life exercising Christian compassion? Easter is nearly here. I doubt Jesus would characterize abortion as “Christian compassion.” On Easter, we celebrate a death overcome, a rebirth of an innocent one wrongly executed.
                Incredibly, the good doctor told Rolling Stone that Martin Luther King Jr.’s sermon, “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop,” helped move him to perform abortions. I’ve read and re-read that speech since, and I must confess I can’t find anything in it that would persuade me to want to kill (my own) kid(s), or lead me to believe Dr. King was pro-abortion.
                Parker helpfully explains: “That sermon by Dr. King was instrumental in me examining my role in addressing injustice and oppression.” He also said he was influenced by the writings of Malcolm X. Injustice and oppression? There can be no more egregious form of injustice than killing an innocent baby, the ultimate victim of oppression, who, though created by others, is deemed “an inconvenience.” And, for the record, Dr. King’s beliefs and Malcolm X’s do not exactly jibe.
                The abortion provider elaborated: “Their sense of work is from a deep place of humanity and wanting for others what you want for yourself. The courage that’s necessary to assert yourself on behalf of human dignity, they modeled that for me, despite risk.”

                “Humanity” and “human dignity” are enhanced by dicing up little humans? Infanticide takes no “courage,” Mr. Parker. And, does “Wanting for others what you want for yourself” mean you wish you had been aborted, doctor?

United We Fly!

                 “Welcome real passengers, my name is Melanie, and I will be your head flight-attendant for today’s flight to Chicago. Before I go any further, I have a question to pose: How is a United Airlines employee like Tattoo from ‘The Love Boat?’ They both say ‘De-plane! De-plane! a lot,’ hahaha. Anywho, now that we’ve finally removed all the interlopers, let me go over some flight do’s and don’ts for you folks that remain.
                “First off, be on the lookout for scorpions, tarantulas, and other small, poisonous creatures falling- or jumping- down from the overhead luggage rack. If one is on your person, please don’t panic and stomp on it, as this tends to make the carpet hard to clean. Simply trap it using a cup and a plate, carry it to the bathroom and flush it down the toilet. Speaking of the bathroom, all passengers are permitted to use the bathroom graciously provided on this aircraft. However, we ask that you use it no more than twice on this flight, including the disposal of poisonous vermin. Also, be considerate of your fellow travelers and keep the length of each usage to a bare minimum. To this end, anyone in the bathroom for more than three minutes per usage will have their picture taken by our high-tech ‘stall-cam.’ This photo will then be posted on our Facebook page and will also be immediately sent to all other passengers via Snap-Chat and Instagram.
                “Next, if anyone happens to spill their drink, expectations are that that person will immediately clean it up, especially if it lands on United Airline’s property. A few other housekeeping notes: occasionally a flight will hit turbulence. If you fly enough, it’s inevitable, right? So put on your effing big-boy pants and deal with it! We don’t want to hear any screaming, sobbing, pleading or praying! Capiche? Huh, I can’t hear you? Okay, good. Speaking of turbulence, farting is strictly prohibited. Anyone with flatulence should have declared that prior to boarding and we would have properly accommodated them by placing them in the animal carriage area in the belly of the plane. And remember, you can’t get up and walk around for any reason during take-off, landing, times of turbulence, or any other time the captain, crew or myself deems it an inconvenience. I’m sure you already know all the crap about sick bags, oxygen masks, and other emergency procedures, so I’m not going to bore you with that.

                “Lastly, we hope you enjoy our special in-flight movie, ‘Sully.’


                “And, as always, thank you for flying the friendly skies of United!”

Border Wall To Cause Animal Extinctions?

                 A university study “has revealed,” according to Fox News, that “at least” 800 species of wildlife will be “adversely affected” by “president Trump’s planned 2,000-mile border wall with Mexico.” Research published by the Mexican National Autonomous University, “Mexico’s top university,” according to the Fox News post, shows that “an impassable physical barrier placed into ecosystems inhabited by jaguars, black bears, and bighorn sheep will so disrupt patterns of migration as to cause a natural catastrophe.” This is obvious hyperbole, much like the phrase, “Mexico’s top university.” Professor Gerardo Ceballos led the study and purportedly told Fox News, “Wildlife has populated these regions for millions of years, and has always had freedom of movement to hunt, reproduce and migrate. To make these animals suffer as a result of man’s political agenda is entirely immoral.”
                Translation: “Mexicans have populated these regions for thousands of years, and have always had freedom of movement to hunt, reproduce, migrate, and smuggle humans and drugs across the border with impunity. Trump sucks.”
                The article goes on to state that 140 species that would be affected by Trump’s border wall are in danger of extinction, “including the bald eagle. Grey wolf, armadillo, and jaguar, a big cat of which remain only 10 in the highlands of the Sonora Desert that straddle (sic) Arizona. Those animals whose range will be halved by the border wall’s construction will be impeded in their ability to reproduce with other members of their species, thereby creating a shallower gene pool and heightening the chance of inbreeding.”

                What a load of rhetorical refuse.

                First off, the bald eagle- thankfully- is not in danger of extinction, but reason apparently is. Someone needs to inform “Mexico’s top university,” Fox News, or both, that bald eagles can fly, rendering a 15 or even 25-foot-tall wall spectacularly moot. And, if throughout the millennia, when there was no wall and open borders beckoned from the Gulf of Mexico to the Gulf of California, the jaguar population was reduced to 10 animals, the wall won’t be a factor in their continued existence. How vast a track of land do 10 cats need to roam to reproduce? It seems quite likely that halving their range might make them more likely to find each other. Proximity is a key factor in reproduction- or so I’ve been told. (Hell, most wives hate it when their husbands roam and would keep them confined to the boudoir and the garage if they had their druthers. How different can cats be)?
                The Great Wall of China is over half the length of the friggin’ equator, an average of 25-feet-tall…and one of the most celebrated achievements in human history. What the hell? Where’s the outcry from environmentalists, animal-lovers, and top universities? Did China’s Great Wall cause wholesale extinctions and scientists just keep forgetting to bring it up?
                The United States could build the wall, and leave a series of, say, 50-yard-wide gaps in it, from one end to the other, in order to let animals pass through. These relatively few “animal checkpoints” could easily be watched to prevent illegals, drugs, and such from entering the country. In any case, the animals will be fine. But the wall must be built.

                Otherwise many, many U.S. citizens are in danger of becoming extinct.

Islam: The World's Fastest Growing Religion

                 A study, recently released by the Pew Research Center, makes clear that Islam is the world’s fastest growing religion. The planet’s Muslim population increased by more than 150 million people between 2010 and 2015 alone. Moreover, within 20 years, more babies will be born to Muslim women than to Christian women world-wide, very likely making Islam the world’s largest religion by the end of this century.
                Christianity is currently the world’s largest religion, but it is growing more slowly, in large part due to its rapidly declining numbers in Europe. Though Christians have accounted for roughly 33% of births world-wide in recent years, just barely outpacing the number of Muslim births, they also made up 37% of world-wide deaths, almost twice the share of deaths from any other religion. (Many at the hands of Islamic extremists). The study’s lead researcher, Conrad Hackett, stated, “Christianity is literally dying in Europe.” This is especially sad given that Europe was the very seat of Christendom for centuries.
                Elder Christians are dying off. Those that, for example, saved the world from Hitler, Tojo and Stalin are almost gone now. The New Christians, those that truly worship only tolerance, and genuflect only in the direction of postmodern “social justice,” are utterly unsuited to preserving Western culture and free, democratic, republics. Ironically, this Christian-Lite™ “Co-exist” crowd will soon see to the demise of their own (increasingly secular) societies.

                Need further proof? More specific examples?

                Hundreds upon hundreds of Christian churches have closed throughout Europe while hundreds upon hundreds of Mosques have opened. Christian priests and pastors have given Catholic and Lutheran property to Muslim neighbors and immigrants to worship in and on. The results of their largess? Four people were killed recently in Stockholm by an Islamic terrorist who ran them over with a truck. Ma├»lys Dereymaeker was one of the four. She was the mother of an 18-month-old baby. She was also a psychologist at several Belgian migrant centers, proudly helping “refugees” whose asylum requests had been denied. Rakhmat Akilov, the man who killed her, had his own application for asylum rejected last year. Swedish authorities, however, never got around to deporting him.
               Then there is the case of Maria Ladenburger, the daughter of a high-ranking European Union official, who was brutally raped and murdered by a 17-year-old Afghan immigrant who has since pleaded guilty and is awaiting sentencing. Maria was raped and then drowned. Her body was found in the river Dreisam. Maria was a volunteer helping immigrants in refugee homes.
               Her father, Dr. Clemens Ladenburger, is a lawyer and chief assistant to the legal director of the European Commission, and also an elected representative of the Catholic Church of Germany. A position he leveraged to advance refugee rights. Surely Dr. Ladenburger was, at the very least, a bit chagrinned after his beautiful, sweet, precious daughter was murdered in cold blood, right?
               Maria Ladenburger’s funeral took place in Brussels, Belgium. Her father used the occasion to solicit donations for two Muslim charities, one for those in Bangladesh, and the other for local refugee illegals in Germany.
               He stood for election to a Catholic lay group this past November, a few weeks after his daughter was murdered.

               He won.

Robot Has First Period In Scientific Breakthrough

                 According to a report from thesun.co.uk, a “robot” has “had its first period in an incredible scientific feat which brings us a step closer to creating robots in our own image.” Do we really want our future robots to be “on the rag?” Why?! I thought Alice Cooper said only women bleed. I guess it’s a brave new world. Will we soon have to run to the store to purchase “feminine” hygiene products for our menstruating- and embarrassed- A.I. robot masters? What kind of a bizarro world would that be? We are in such a rush to dismiss any and all differences between actual, living, in-the-flesh human sexes, it would be surpassingly strange if we wanted to make sure our advanced machines of the future could menstruate.
                None-the-less, according to the report, scientists at Northwestern University used human cells to successfully recreate a female reproductive system “in a box.” (Insert your own witticism here).
                After activating their Frankensteinian creation, researchers claim the book-sized “biobot,” dubbed EVATAR (get it?), completed its first menstrual cycle. Yay!
What comes first, the robot or the egg? Just kidding. It’s the progressive person thinking about having sex with an artificially-menstruating A.I. sex-bot named Mercedes, obviously. 

The future of artificial intelligence and its reproduction appears bright. The future of humanity…not so much.

Drexel University Professor Hate-Tweets Again

   Drexel University professor George Ciccariello watched as people boarded the flight he was on recently, only to see a flight-mate give up a first-class seat to a uniformed soldier. This prompted professor Ciccariello to tweet: “Some guy gave up his first-class seat for a uniformed soldier. People are thanking him. I’m trying not to vomit or yell about Mosul.” Class incarnate.
                 This is not the first outrageous tweet the professor has issued. Last year he tweeted: “All I want for Christmas is White Genocide.” This understandably perturbed some folks, leading Ciccariello to claim the tweet was a joke, though simultaneously causing him to label critics of his comedy “violent racists.” He’s advocating racial-based genocide and is calling his detractors “violent racists?” You can’t make this up. (I find myself saying that a lot lately. Writing it, too, as the astute reader may have noticed without my mentioning it). The esteemed professor is also on record as saying that the slaughter of 4,000 white people during the Haitian Revolution was “a good thing indeed.”
                The university is aware of Professor Ciccariello’s comments, but has no plans to take disciplinary action against him as it says his tweets fall under the category of “protected speech.” Oddly, the school instructs its students to avoid saying or creating material that is in any way denigrating to a person or a group of people.
                If a professor stated that the slaughter of 4,000 black people/gays/Muslims/transgenders/pro-gressives was “a good thing indeed,” he or she would already be fired, excommunicated, deemed guilty of a hate crime, and possibly been incarcerated for life.

                Reading Professor Ciccariello’s remarks, it is hard not to vomit or yell.

School's Vocabulary Quiz [Blanks] Trump

                A teacher at Timber Ridge Middle School in Plainfield, Illinois, constructed an unusual vocabulary quiz recently. According to theblaze.com, Rebecca Gomez’s mother was deeply chagrinned when her eighth-grade daughter brought home the exam populated by blatantly anti-Trump fill-in-the-blank questions. A sampling of the scholarly linguistic queries:
                *“It was difficult for me to [blank] my feeling when I learned that Donald J. Trump had been voted in as our 45th President.”
                *“After reading about President Trump’s immigration ban, I did not realize how [blank] the law can be.”
                Leftists incessantly talk about the founder’s belief in the separation of church and state, which only meant that there should be no official, state-sponsored/controlled religion. That doctrine was meant to protect and foster the concept of freedom of religion, not freedom from religion, which they would have seen as anathema.
                Similarly, the state must not be involved in sponsoring/promoting one political viewpoint or party, or totalitarianism reigns- by definition. There must be freedom of thought and speech, as well as freedom from political indoctrination or coercion. When public schools, tax-payer funded and government controlled, attempt to indoctrinate rather than educate their students, our vocabulary should be brought to bear in an all-out, full-throated attack on those engaged in the brainwashing. In conclusion, let me just say:

                *It was hard for me not to [blank] when I heard about this quiz. Furthermore, those in the government, taking tax-payer’s money to create biased, intolerant and non-inclusive quizzes like this should be soundly [blanked].

New York Times Reporter Casually Solicits Felony?

                In reply to a recent tweet from Vox.com editor Matthew Yglesias that stated, “It’s impressive that the IRS never leaks,” New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof tweeted: “But if you’re in IRS and have a certain president’s tax return that you’d like to leak, my address is: NYT, 620 Eighth Ave, NY NY 10018.”
                The unbiased, intrepid reporter received some replies to his tweet that he may not have expected, but should have, if he were actually a knowledgeable, objective journalist. A few of the responses:
                “Trump’s accusations of a deep state conspiracy against him are pure lunacy. Also someone at the IRS leak me his tax returns.”
                “So just to clarify: You’re soliciting a felony, ‘journalist’?”
                “Conspiracy to commit a crime is a felony there Nicki boy.”
                “ATTN @Twitter- @NickKristof is using your medium to solicit a federal crime.”
                “#NewYorkTimes writer soliciting IRS employees to commit felony, which is itself a felony if I’m not mistaken.”

                And now for my final thoughts:
               Nicholas Kristof embarrassed himself before Rachel Maddow made herself look like a fool. But it won't matter in either case because there is no cure for Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS), a malady from which both the "journalists" and their followers clearly suffer. “The truth is”- @NickKristof and #NewYorkTimes- that you both are frauds, cocky charlatans, pompous practitioners of pretense, and masters of misrepresentation.

                We have met the enemy…and he is you.

Harvard Students: Trump Bigger Threat Than ISIS

                                Harvard Students: Trump Bigger Threat Than ISIS

                More Harvard students are scared of President Trump than are scared of ISIS, according to a survey by CampusReform.org.
                One Harvard student polled said: “I think more of [Trump’s] policies mainly because I think terrorism really isn’t that big of a deal.”
                ISIS slaughtered 33 young men in Syria Wednesday, execution-style, employing “sharp tools,” according to reports.
                Another scholarly survey respondent stated: “Do I think ISIS is going to cause a threat to me living my everyday life? Not really. Do I think the rhetoric that Donald Trump is using and empowering these folks hidden in a corner for a long time with hateful views…do I think that’s more of a threat than ISIS? Yes.”
                During March of this year alone, Islamic extremists conducted 154 attacks in 23 countries killing 1,105 people and injuring 1,324 more according to thereligionofpeace.com. I’m reasonably certain President Trump didn’t kill anyone in that same time period.
                Great job media and professors! You, and many high-profile members of the Democratic Party, have been complicit in dumbing-down and indoctrinating these Ivy-Leaguers to the point that they are incapable of basic reasoning, and unable to recognize reality. Ironically, about the only thing these students aren’t afraid of is terrorism! ISIS slaughters dozens more innocent civilians? Yawn. President Trump wants to limit illegal immigration into the U.S.? AHHHHH! Run for the safe-spaces! Run for the f%#’ing safe-spaces!
                You can’t make this crap up. And why would anyone try? “Actual ‘fake news’” appears uninspired, boring and somewhat less illogical when compared to “actual ‘real news.’”
                In yet another irony, these addled anti-Trump students themselves are the biggest threat to the “everyday life” of those holding differing views, frequently shouting them down and shutting them up…and, in some instances, getting them banned or removed from campus.

ISIS Message Targets Trump

The Islamic State released a message Tuesday directly targeting President Donald Trump, Reuters reported. Abi al-Hassan al-Muhajer, a “spokesman” for the terror group, purportedly released the following statement on the messaging app Telegram: “America you have drowned and there is no savior, and you have become prey for the soldiers of the caliphate in every part of the earth, you are bankrupt and the signs of your demise are evident to every eye. There is no more evidence than the fact that you are being run by an idiot who does not know what Syria or Iraq or Islam is.”

                Democrats generally hailed the message as “constructive” and “heartening.”

                Maxine Waters said, “This is just what we have been saying to the American people, what we have bent over backward to make clear!”
                Nancy Pelosi remarked, “Trump is an idiot. Everyone with a brain and a heart knows that. This is really, I think, a wise and sober statement.”
                Former President Obama released a statement saying in part: “Maybe some good can come out of this, finally. We have to be able to recognize the problem and not be afraid to call it what it is.”
                Michael Moore agreed, saying, “The enemy of my enemy…is my friend.”
                A visibly relieved Susan Rice, former National Security Advisor to President Barack Obama, and now under scrutiny for unmasking surveilled members of the Trump administration, observed: “Finally! Some substantive, real news!”
                Rachel Maddow, on MSNBC, said that “she didn’t know how” the Reuters report ended up in her mailbox, but none-the-less was quick to tout the “Trump: Even ISIS Thinks He’s An Idiot” edition of her show as a “cable television exclusive,” that could “bring down the president.”
                Chris Matthews expressed hope, on his own MSNBC show, that ISIS and “certain elements of the U.S. government” could work together to eliminate the threat posed to the United States…by the Trump administration.
                Trump responded, as usual, via Twitter, tweeting: “Go lay by your dish, Abi al-Hassan al-Muhajer, you hairy piece of crap! Bad guy…really bad guy!”
                                                                  **************
                                              *Parody Alert!*Parody Alert!*Parody Alert!

Inappropriate Appropriation?

                Two co-eds at Pitzer College, in Claremont California, have demanded white women stop wearing hoop earrings, asserting that they “belong to the black and brown folks who created the culture.” The school’s student newspaper, the Claremont Independent, reported that “White Girl, take off your hoops!!!” was spray-painted on the college’s free-speech wall.
                Alegria Martinez of the Latinx (not a typo) Student Union said she painted the ‘message’ with other women of color who were “tired and annoyed with the reoccuring (sic) theme of white women appropriating styles.” What happened to the idea that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery? If, instead, ‘appropriation’ is now a sin, women of color shouldn’t be allowed to wear blue jeans or eat at McDonalds. And I guess all Americans should give up buying French wine or German beer.
                Free speech used to be a universal American birthright, but is now tragically and ironically confined to a wall on many college campuses. Yet, “speech” like Ms. Martinez and company spray-painted on Claremont’s barrier doesn’t do much to recommend the widespread return of campuses First Amendment rights.

                Pitzer’s mascot is a ‘Sage hen.’ It’s a pity some of the school’s women aren’t wiser.

Planned Parenthood Rejects Trump Administration Offer

                 Planned Parenthood recently rejected an offer from the Trump administration that would have allowed the organization to keep all of its federal funding if it stopped performing abortions. There were even suggestions that additional funding might be provided, according to the New York Times. This tells us all we need to know about the nature and mission of the institution. So much for their claims that they provide a full range of vital women’s health care services, and that abortion is “only 3%” of their business.
                There are many conservatives who believe the organization shouldn’t be the recipient of federal funds even if it did stop performing abortions. Planned Parenthood has been the target of allegations that it has engaged in Medicaid fraud, failed to report statutory rape to law enforcement, aided and abetted sex traffickers, and been involved in the sale of aborted fetal body parts. Is there a better definition of sheer evil?
                Trump confirmed the proposal in a statement to the Times, saying: “There is an opportunity for organizations to continue the important work they do in support of women’s health, while not providing abortion services.”
                To which Planned Parenthood President and CEO Cecile Richards replied: “The White House proposal that Planned Parenthood stop providing abortion is the same demand opponents of women’s health have been pushing for decades, as part of their long-standing effort to end women’s access to safe, legal abortion. Planned Parenthood has always stood strong against these attacks on our patients and their ability to access the full range of reproductive health care.”
                Ms. Richards mental health is certainly in question. Notice she says, “opponents of women’s health,” not even, “opponents of what we consider to be a vital component of women’s health care.” Like anyone is against “women’s health.”  Trump in his statement offering to continue federal funding for the organization Richards heads referred to “the important work they do in support of women’s health.” But that will never fly with leftists. They will try to eviscerate anyone who ever questions anything they do- or believe- and accuse their foes of the very intolerance they exhibit in spades.
                Cleverly called to account, they have once again shown that abortion is their cash cow, their religion, their raison d’etre, the very heart of their evil empire.
                President Trump gave Planned Parenthood a chance to truly serve women’s health by not “throwing the baby out with the bathwater.”

                Sadly, it is no surprise that offer did not appeal to  “Planned Parenthood.”

California's Transgender Women Inmates To Get Lingerie?

Shiloh Heavenly Quine, a transgender woman previously known as Rodney James Quine, was convicted of first-degree murder, kidnapping and robbery. (See my post: California Inmate Receives State-Funded Sex-Reassignment Surgery; January 11, 2017). In January “she” became the first person in the United States to receive state-funded sex-reassignment surgery while being incarcerated, after which “she” was transferred to a women’s prison, a move “she” had previously requested. Now, however, Shiloh claims “she” is being subjected to “torture,” because prison officials have denied “her” a razor, and consequently “she” is sporting a beard and mustache. The 57-year-old convict said having facial hair in a women’s prison is having a “huge impact on day-to-day life,” and making it increasingly difficult to transition to a woman.
What a bunch of crap. Deal with it, sister. You know what actually had a huge impact on people’s day-to-day lives? You murdering a father of three in cold blood. So get a bottle of Nair and shut up. Besides, I thought a person is whatever a person identifies as, regardless of appearance, no? I guess women prisoners really are “mean girls,” huh? Are they laughing at you and calling you names? Sticks and stones, Ms. Quine, sticks and stones.
A spokesperson for the Central California Women’s Facility said all female inmates are denied razors and televisions- among other privileges- while they are being evaluated, so Quine isn’t being singled out or subjected to cruel and unusual punishment. It is more than a little repulsive that “she” would attempt to play the victim card. It is as disgusting as it is preposterous.
Remarkably, Quine’s 2015 lawsuit arguing that “she” should be permitted to receive taxpayer-funded sex reassignment surgery was not only successful, but led to consideration of whether transgender female inmates in men’s prisons should be given items such as nightgowns, scarves and necklaces.
In fact, Quine’s attorneys at the Transgender Law Center are still arguing with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation over precisely what should be provided to transgender felons. Another court hearing to discuss the matter is scheduled for April 27th. State regulators have recently proposed rules that would permit transgender female inmates housed in men’s facilities to have access to feminine undergarments, lip gloss, and mascara. (Conversely, transgender male inmates living in women’s facilities would be allowed to use aftershave and wear boxers).
The bottom line, so to speak, is that transgender prisoners in California may soon be provided with bras, panties, cosmetics, and other personal items corresponding with their chosen gender identity. But, if recent history is any indication, this may not be satisfactory to felonious-Americans. It is likely that convicted male murderers who now identify as women may demand matching sets of high-end intimates, perhaps by Victoria’s Secret, Playful Promises, Holly Rafaela or Buttress & Snatch. If bandeaus, thongs, and chemises aren’t promptly provided, more lawsuits are a fait accompli.
It is a given that items from the Kim Kardashian Kollection and Caitlyn Jenner Collection be available to jailbirds if we want to avoid offending the incarcerated-transgender-female-criminal-community. It is on us to show our tolerance and inclusiveness by providing these psychopaths with much-needed thongs, French Maids, and Baby-Dolls. 
Robbery, kidnapping and murder are one thing, but depriving  transgender “female” prisoners of a camisole or a chemisette is beyond the pale.
