Biden Administration To Tie Federal Funding Of Schools To LGBTQ Mandate Compliance


The Biden administration recently announced that federal education funding will soon be tied to schools’ adherence to LGBTQ mandates.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced last month that it would consider discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity a violation of Title IX. That would mean, for instance, that if a school decided not to allow biological males who identify as women to use women’s restrooms or compete alongside females in sports, it would lose out on federal funding.


Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack stated that the “USDA is committed to administering all its programs with equity and fairness and serving those in need with the highest dignity. A key step in advancing these principles is rooting out discrimination in any form – including discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.” First of all, why are Title IX and gender and sexual orientation issues the bailiwick of the Department of Agriculture? Does it not have enough to do trying to feed people and deal with belching and farting cows? Second, letting males into female bathrooms and locker rooms and allowing them to compete against women is not serving anybody with “the highest dignity.”

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis blasted Biden’s directive, noting its potential to revoke funding for K-12 students who receive free or reduced-cost school lunches. And South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem has threatened to sue the Biden administration due to the fact the new policy would limit funding to school lunch programs in districts where biologically male athletes are restricted from participating in girl’s athletics. Noem said, “President Biden is holding lunch money for poor Americans hostage in pursuit of his radical agenda.”

Is it really good policy to tie federal largesse to a school’s endorsement of transgenderism or anal sex? Asking for a friend.

I’m not a big fan of federal funding in most cases anyway, but should it be tied to a school’s endorsement of, say, polyamory? Fisting? “Water sports?” Or, for that matter, of misogyny, white supremacy, or NASCAR racing?

CNN Commentator Uses Disabled Relatives As Examples Of Why Abortion Is So Necessary


As hard as it may be to believe, CNN commentator Ana Navarro recently used her disabled brother-- and step granddaughter-- as examples of why all women should have legal and unfettered access to abortions.

Navarro said no one should be able to tell a woman what they should be able to do with her “life” or her “uterus.” She did not mention the baby’s life, however.

She said, “I have a brother who’s 57 and has the mental and motor skills of a 1-year-old and I know what that means financially, emotionally, physically for a family and I know not all families can do it.” She added, “I have a step granddaughter who was born with Down Syndrome – and you know what? It is very difficult in Florida to get services…and I got another step grandson who is very autistic.”

Oh, I see. Much better if they had been aborted. Easier for the family. You know, those people with mental and physical disabilities are a real drag on the rest of us. Better to just exterminate them and be done with it. I’m not exactly sure what the cut off should be for minimum allowed IQ…maybe 75 or 80. And maybe any male under 5’5 or with a very small penis should just be dispensed with. And, perhaps, anyone with severe asthma or a noticeable speech impediment.

Navarro also boldly claimed that she can still be Catholic and pro-abortion, saying, “I’m Catholic when it comes to me, but there’s a lot of Americans who are not Catholic and they’re not Christian and you have no damn right to tell them what they should do with their bodies!” (Well, I guess vaccine mandates and anti-gun laws are out the window.)

One can be Catholic and pro-abortion? Yes, just like one can be a vegan and eat red meat or be a pacifist and be pro-war. Or like how one can still be a Christian and be pro-Satan. Duh!

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Hilariously Laments SCOTUS Abortion Decision


Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is either one of the dumbest people ever to trod the Earth, one of the most hypocritical, stupendously fiendish…or some combination of the aforementioned.

Trudeau took to Twitter recently to solemnly state: “The news coming out of the United States is horrific. My heart goes out to the millions of American women who are now set to lose their legal right to an abortion. I can’t imagine the fear and anger you are feeling right now.”

He added: “No government, politician, or man should tell a woman what she can and cannot do with her body. I want women in Canada to know that we will always stand up for your right to choose.”

This is the guy who attempted to force every woman (and man, and non-binary) in Canada to accept an experimental, emergency use vaccine (with several known potential severe side-effects) into their bodies or face financial penalties, job loss or potentially even incarceration. I can imagine the fear and anger they felt.

Trudeau also recently speculated that the U.S. Supreme Court’s abortion ruling could soon lead to the loss of other “rights.” Like, perhaps, the right to get in one’s truck and drive across the country to peacefully protest an unconstitutional mandate to surrender one’s bodily integrity without having one’s bank accounts frozen? Or maybe the fundamental, inherent right to effectively defend oneself?

The formerly black-faced leader of The Great White North suggested that his country would continue to allow Americans to get abortions in Canada. Yes, I’m sure he will be happy to allow them to cross the border, as long as they are fully vaccinated and boosted, of course.

Speaking of which, Trudeau recently granted an interview to CBC Radio’s The House, in which he noted that the unvaccinated will have to deal with the consequences of their obstinance. Newsflash: that’s all we’ve ever asked for, Dumbo. (The same must also be said about those who engage in risky sexual behavior, including women who have unprotected sex. If you engage in intercourse without precaution, yet don’t want a baby, you should not be legally able to make the baby suffer the consequences of your carelessness, lust, and sloth.)

Moreover, given that it appears the fully vaccinated have accounted for the large majority of COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths in Canada over the past couple of months, those “consequences” might well be positive rather than negative.

Trudeau once called the Freedom Convoy protesters that journeyed to Ottawa last February a “small fringe minority” who held “unacceptable views.” Funny, I thought liberals were all about protecting minorities. But I guess not the ones who hold “unacceptable views,” meaning those with which they disagree.

“No government, politician, or man should tell a woman what she can and cannot do with her body.” Really? That is childishly obvious hypocrisy. The government tells women (and men) they cannot murder another human being for their convenience. Or club a baby seal to death. Or drive over the speed limit. Or walk into a convenience store and buy a pack of cigarettes before they turn 18. Etc., etc., etc.

“No government, politician, or man should tell a woman what she can and cannot do with her body?” That’s as may be.

But, if she has an “unacceptable view,” Trudeau’s government might tell her what to think.

Young Lesbian Couple Say They May Be Half-Sisters


In yet another example of rapid societal decay, a young lesbian couple who have been “dating” for two years recently revealed they may actually be half-sisters.

The two girls share an OnlyFans account, with the handle @notyouraveragesisterz. Get it? Anyway, they recently took to TikTok to let their 560,000-plus followers know that they might just be siblings. They did so after allegedly discovering that both of their mothers had an affair years ago with the same man, according to the New York Post. Dear old mom.

The couple’s TikTok post began by showing the smitten duo with the caption: “Us happy in our 2 year relationship.” Aw, young love. The next picture sported the caption: “Finding out we might be half sisters,” and showed a slightly less exuberant set of lovers. In a subsequent short video they asked their followers: “Should we even risk getting a DNA test?” The responses were split, with some saying they must get a DNA test ASAP and some saying “it doesn’t matter.”

“Love is love,” you know.

The couple’s most recent post, as of this writing, stated that a “DNA test is on the way.”   

However, in a previous video post, the girls wrote: “we LOVE that we found out we might be half sisters after 2 years of dating.” So, the DNA test appears to be moot.

A number of years ago, the “hip” thing was to be gay. That’s now passe, old school…traditional. More recently, countless young people have succumbed to peer (and societal) pressure and opted to convert to the opposite sex. This is—still—The Age of Transgenderism, but that Age may be waning. Incestuous lesbians might well be the next hip thing. Surely K-12 schools will soon be encouraging this fabulously inclusive, empowering and exciting trend. They will, no doubt, refuse to notify parents of their young charges’ newly professed desire to have sex with their same sex sibling.

You may not be free to decline an experimental vaccine injection—or to defend yourself with a firearm—but you will be free to lick your sister.  Actually, may be coerced encouraged to do so.

Progress, you know. Ain’t it grand?

Biden EPA Nominee Supports "Climate Reparations"


The Biden administration has nominated Howard University Environmental Law Professor Carlton Waterhouse to become assistant administrator of the EPA’s Office of Land and Emergency Management. Waterhouse is a truly far-left radical and supporter of so-called “climate reparations.” He believes that the United States needs to be punished for having an advanced economy, as it must have become wealthy only at the expense of other countries.

At the American Climate Leadership Summit in 2020, Waterhouse, who also believes in reparations for Black people, stated: “Climate reparations is really just calling for the equitable redress for the harm that has been caused historically. That’s what it’s about—making amends.”

He added: “I think climate reparations are essential and an important part of having an equitable climate vision. I think we have to understand that we’re not able to get to an equitable climate solution if we don’t address the inequities in our society. So ultimately, our environment is just one larger part of the social world in which we live. When we think about an equitable climate solution, we’ve got to think about how to equitably deal with this social inequality and injustices that result from our history of gender, race, and class discrimination, and that kind of reality means that we have to envision a space where those are not present. As long as gender and race and class discrimination define people's experiences in our society, they will also define their experiences in relationship to the environment. And so that has to be the central part of really moving us forward to address an accurate and equitable climate vision.”

Let me put this as equitably as I can: HUH?!

Waterhouse drones on: “With regards to climate reparations, I might start off by saying the United States historically is one of the biggest contributors by itself, probably the largest historically of any contributors to climate problems at all, followed by Europe. When you put Europe and the United States together, you’re kind of talking about 90 percent of the contributors to the greenhouse gases that we are now suffering the consequences from. In contrast, the rest of the world combined probably has contributed roughly 10 percent. Marginalized communities within those countries that have gotten the least benefits out of that pollution, are also going to suffer some of the greatest harms from that. And around the world, countries that have had very little if any contribution towards climate change are suffering some of its worst consequences. Climate reparations is really just calling for the equitable redress for the harm that has been caused historically.”

And on: he opined on the importance of “engaging as allies and as advocates for marginalized communities, for communities of color, for working class, and low-income communities.”

And on: “If you’re a part of an organization, or a church, or you're just an individual who’s concerned about addressing climate change, then it’s important for you to serve as an ally, for those on the ground community-based environmental justice organizations, social-justice organizations that are fighting around issues of environmental justice. As long as the people who are most at risk and most marginalized are neglected, we’ll never really have an equitable climate solution. But if we begin by looking to those who are most threatened, like those in Flint, and in other cities like East Chicago, Indiana, when you look to those communities that are most threatened, most harmed, then you're going to find solutions that are going to allow everyone to be able to succeed.”

Ranking GOP committee member Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) recently unearthed some of Waterhouse’s earlier tweets, exposing his extreme anti-capitalist views—and stupendous ignorance.

“The ugly truth about energy. The ends don’t justify the means,” Waterhouse wrote on April 25, 2015, employing the hashtag “ResistCapitalism.”

The ugly truth about Leftists is that they are totalitarians. Being able to feed and clothe your family, move freely about the country and the world, and heat or cool your house, does justify the means. Think of the alternative. Think of going back to the Middle Ages.

On May 17, 2015, he tweeted, “Inexpensive products have a high cost. Workers pay with their happiness, health & their lives,” adding the same hashtag.

No, Mr. Waterhouse, the vast array of affordable products that capitalism made possible brought much happiness to the world and raised billions out of poverty-- and their life expectancy, too.

Waterhouse is a virtue-signaling, elitist, authoritarian whacko, so naturally he was awarded a doctorate in social ethics and a master’s degree in theological studies by Emory University. His nomination may be approved by the Senate in the near future.

Is paying “reparations” to every nation/person/entity in the world that is less well off than the U.S./you/your group good policy? Is it moral? Reasonable? Workable? A legitimate benefit to anyone in the long term?

Who gets to be the final arbiter? I have been improperly slighted and taken advantage of many times in my life. Can I get a governmental body to force those who have wronged me to give me reparations? And this becomes increasingly more difficult to adjudicate when we are talking about larger groups, tribes, and even nations.

In the U.S., we formerly had equal justice under the law, a Constitution that guaranteed our rights, with notions such as the presumption of innocence until proven guilty, a jury of one’s peers, etc., etc. Leftists like Waterhouse have largely expunged those personal protections in their ceaseless quest to control everything—and everyone.

We used to pride ourselves on exporting/sharing those concepts with the rest of the world, to the advancement of human freedom.

Here are some other things that the U.S. has given the rest of the world, courtesy of the innovation and work ethic that capitalism and the free market system engender: the suspension bridge, mousetrap,  lightbulb, sunglasses, phonograph, telephone, traffic light, pantyhose, zipper, hearing aid, dental floss, airbags, artificial heart, pacemaker, fire alarm, credit card, chocolate-chip cookie, airplane, skyscraper, television, nylons, laser, frozen food, liquid fuel rocket, microwave, disposable diaper, computer, internet, polio vaccine, assembly line, email, space shuttle, GPS, fiber optic cable. Etc., etc.

Who could ever pay America enough in “reparations” for those gifts? Who could truly make amends?




Commentator Keith Olbermann Calls For Abolishing The Supreme Court


Commentator Keith Olbermann, angry and crazed as ever, took to Twitter to slam the Supreme Court after it struck down a New York gun control law. Olbermann wrote, "It has become necessary to dissolve the Supreme Court of the United States. The first step is for a state the 'court' has now forced guns upon, to ignore this ruling.” He added, “Great. You're a court? Why and how do think you can enforce your rulings?"

A far better question would be, “Great, Keith, you’re a former sportscaster? Why and how do you think you can enforce your decrees?”

My guess is that Olbermann thinks we need to dissolve the Supreme Court in order to “save our democracy,” a phrase people who want to dissolve our democracy often use.

Yes, let’s do away with the Court, the filibuster, the electoral college, the Constitution, and the First & Second (and maybe a couple of other) Amendments. If we eliminate all the institutions that were specifically put in place to protect people’s rights, we would be much better off. We must save our democracy by eliminating it!

In fairness, I’m sure that Mr. Olbermann’s plan would be far superior to what the Founders wrought! I’m certain he is far more schooled in world history, economics, civil law—and, of course, systems of government-- than they were.

The Supreme Court has issued countless decisions over the years that have been anathema to conservatives, yet conservatives have never called for packing the court or dissolving it. Or burning it down, for that matter.

Who are the real enemies of democracy, the actual tyrants?

Keith, what do you think about the Senate? Perspiring minds want to know.

Democrats Greatest Trick Is Convincing The World They Are The Good Guys


“Progressive” Democrats are fantastically good at being evil. They have an astounding ability to avoid accountability, and to traffic in hypocrisy without consequence.  They have mastered prevarication and raised projection to an art form.

Whether they are: falsely accusing Donald Trump of colluding with Russians, even as they were doing just that, ignoring mask—and other-- mandates they themselves have passed, locking up “January 6” protesters while supporting BLM and Antifa rioters that burned and looted numerous American cities throughout the summer of 2020, or engaging in any of literally countless other examples of chicanery, they are always disingenuous. Even now, they are, preposterously, sounding the alarm about “Russian interference” in the upcoming 2022 midterm elections. This despite the fact that many—if not most-- people understandably believe they stole the last election from Trump. (Claims which, ever true to form, Democrats call “baseless” and “The Big Lie.” In fact, they claim that election was perfect…the cleanest, fairest, and most accurate in American history.)

And, just recently, President Biden engaged in a lovefest interview with late night television host Jimmy “Karl Malone” Kimmel, in which he spoke about gun control and abortion and lied about the economy.  The Uniter-in Chief also blasted Republicans and accused them of not playing fair. Biden said, “I often get asked, ‘Look, the Republicans don’t play it square. Why do you play it square?’ Well, guess what. If we do the same thing they do, our democracy will literally be in jeopardy. Not a joke.”

But it is a joke, laughable on its face, if it wasn’t so malicious.

The truly pathetic Kimmel directed nothing but softball questions --and bedroom eyes-- towards the president…while attempting to cover for Biden’s bouts of confusion.

At one point, Kimmel, likening Biden’s “plight” to playing Monopoly with someone who doesn’t play fair, asked: “How do you ever make any progress if they’re not following the rules?”

To which Biden replied: “Well, you have to send them to jail.” Though Biden was trying to be cute, that remark might not be funny to Roger Stone, Peter Navarro, and others who have been arrested by the administration. Nor to Michigan gubernatorial candidate Ryan Kelley, who Biden’s FBI arrested less than 12 hours after Biden made that remark. (Kelley attended the January 6 rally and was accused of disorderly conduct even though he never entered the Capitol Building.)

The Big Lie isn’t that Donald Trump and his MAGA supporters “baselessly” believe the election was stolen from them. The Big Lie is that most Democrats care about the little people/marginalized/planet Earth. Nothing could be further from the truth, which they despise. They aren’t interested in saving the whales, the Spotted Owl, or the planet itself. They want power. Absolute and effectively unchallengeable power…so they can destroy the United States, capitalism, Christianity, and the traditional family.

In retrospect, the Left’s greatest hoax wasn’t in assuring us that a man can simply choose to be a woman and vice-versa, or that the mass killing of babies in (and maybe out of) the womb is “women’s health care.”

Charles Baudelaire noted, “The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.”

Ken Ammi stated a corollary: “The second greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he is the good guy.”

The same could be said about today’s Democrats.

Rabbi Says "My Religion Makes Me Pro-Abortion"


The Atlantic, a far-left magazine and multi-platform publisher, recently ran a story by Danya Ruttenberg, a self-proclaimed rabbi and scholar in residence at the National Council of Jewish Women. The piece was titled My Religion Makes Me Pro-Abortion,” and proudly trumpets the fact that the NCJW’s “Rabbis for Repro” network “includes more than 1,800 Jewish clergy of every denomination committed to supporting abortion access for all.” Ruttenberg is in favor of not only preserving the “right” to abortion, but of expanding access to it.

And she (I profess I don’t really know what her preferred pronouns are) cites stories from the Hebrew Bible to support her “beliefs.” She notes that, in the Book of Exodus, “Two people are fighting; one accidentally pushes someone who is pregnant, causing a miscarriage. The text outlines the consequences: If only a miscarriage happens, the harm doer is obligated to pay financial damages. If, however, the pregnant person dies, the case is treated as manslaughter. The meaning is clear: The fetus is regarded as potential life, rather than actual life.”

Um, Rabbi Ruttenberg, if one must pay financial damages for doing something, that obviously doesn’t mean it’s a good thing. The word “damages” should be a clue. How can you possibly get from there to “pro-abortion?!” And the Exodus example was an accidental push, not a deliberate dismembering or taking of life. It simply does not follow that because someone is fined for the inadvertent death of an unborn child God would approve of the intentional killing of an unborn child via abortion. And on a mass scale.

The ridiculous rabbi then cites an ancient one’s statement in the Talmud in which she says he says the fetus should be regarded as part of the “pregnant person’s” body “until the end of the pregnancy.” You know the Talmud did not use the phrase “pregnant person,” which tells you much about Ruttenberg.

Ruttenberg goes on to say: “I believe that we serve the divine when we care for those created in the divine image.” By killing them? Or by helping them kill their babies?

She cites quotes by other allegedly religious people, including the Reverend Katey Zeh, a Baptist minister (and more importantly the CEO of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice) who she said once told her “Abortion justice is holy work for me because it’s aligned with the most sacred values of my faith: compassion, kindness, and love.”

Tearing a sensate yet defenseless baby limb from limb for your own convenience is “compassionate, kind and loving?” Only if you are clinically insane.

Even more repulsively, Ruttenberg notes that Jamie Manson, the president of Catholics for Choice, expressed a similar sentiment in a speech she gave last December: “In the Gospel, Jesus tells us the truth shall set us free. Here is the truth: One in four abortion patients in this country is Catholic, and for them, abortion is a blessing.”

It might be true that one in four abortion patients in the U.S. is Catholic, but it is not true that abortion is a “blessing.”

Near the end of the piece, Rabbi Mengele Ruttenberg stated that “people of faith like Zeh and Manson serve as crucial reminders: Being Christian doesn’t necessarily equate to holding an anti-abortion position.” She also noted that “other sects of Christianity have changed their stance on abortion over time,” adding that “the reason for the shift” over time “can’t be pinpointed.”

For the love of God, Ms. Ruttenberg, does being Christian no longer equate to holding an anti-murder position? Can Christians now be pro-adultery, too? Pro-theft? Is it okay now to bear false witness against our neighbor?

The reason for the shift in beliefs over time can, in fact, be pinpointed. It is because we have eschewed adherence to Biblical principles and instead decided to worship ourselves and our every weakness and desire.

Progressives/Leftists/Democrats now routinely tell the biggest lies possible and try to force others to believe them-- or risk being shamed, “cancelled,” or worse. Is that “compassionate, kind, and loving?” “Pro-choice” groups routinely vandalize the property of pro-life groups and are now declaring “open season” on them. Is that, too, aligned with “the most sacred values” of your faith, Rabbi Ruttenberg?

I will end with these questions: what if Jesus Christ had been aborted, for Mary’s convenience, instead of crucified? Should that have been okay with…Christians?

"Happy" The Elephant Denied Freedom


Happy, the Asian elephant that has called the Bronx Zoo home for over 40 years, will remain there for the foreseeable future after New York’s highest court recently ruled that she is not a person in a legal sense, and therefore not entitled to the fundamental human right of liberty. (Apparently, neither are many actual humans who casually strolled through the Capitol Building, a.k.a. “The People’s House,” on January 6th, 2021.)

By a 5-2 margin, the Court of Appeals rejected the Nonhuman Rights Project’s argument that Happy was being illegally detained at the zoo and should be transferred to a more natural environment.

The case hinged on whether the cornerstone legal principle of “habeas corpus” — which people assert to protect their bodily liberty and contest illegal confinement — should be extended to allegedly autonomous, cognitively complex animals such as elephants.

Janet DiFiore, the chief judge, correctly wrote in her opinion: “While no one disputes the impressive capabilities of elephants, we reject petitioner’s arguments that it is entitled to seek the remedy of habeas corpus on Happy’s behalf. Habeas corpus is a procedural vehicle intended to secure the liberty rights of human beings who are unlawfully restrained, not nonhuman animals.”

Judge Rowan D. Wilson dissented, saying that the court had a duty “to recognize Happy’s right to petition for her liberty not just because she is a wild animal who is not meant to be caged and displayed, but because the rights we confer on others define who we are as a society.”

It is no coincidence that, as certain groups of humans have fewer and fewer rights in the eyes of  so-called “progressive” governments, there is an ever-increasing call for “non-humans” to be afforded “rights.”

The Nonhuman Rights Project, an animal advocacy organization founded in 2007, has long been engaged in a struggle to free captive animals. Happy’s case is the first to determine if an animal should be granted “personhood” status to reach so high a court. The split decision makes it nearly certain that the debate will continue well into the future.

So, let’s free Happy. And free Willy. And free dogs, cats, pigs, cattle, and gerbils. Let’s give squirrels the vote and make it a crime to kill a cockroach. None of these things would likely even be controversial to today’s progressives, many of whom are so insane they believe humans (other than themselves, of course) are a virus, a scourge on the planet.

Given the fact that one can now “identify” as just about anything one wishes, I am somewhat surprised the Court ruled as it did. I mean, California effectively ruled that bees can be fish. What if Happy identifies as a human?

My guess is the New York Court of Appeals only declined to grant Happy her freedom because she is an elephant—symbol of the Republican Party.

Biden Lies Again. And Again. And Again. And...


President Biden blamed Congressional Republicans for record-high inflation while addressing the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) in a recent speech in Philadelphia. Biden pathetically argued that his economic agenda, which relies on massive government spending, would help tame inflation. He also lamely-- and falsely-- blamed Republican obstruction of that agenda for the country’s current economic woes. (It seems Biden is an alumnus of the Hillary Clinton Institute for Excellence in Blame Shifting and Denouncement.)

Biden boldly—if comically—stated “Under my plan for the economy we made extraordinary progress and put America in a position to tackle a worldwide problem that’s worse everywhere but here: inflation.”

As if that wasn’t a big enough lie, he added: “The problem is, Republicans in Congress are doing everything they can to stop my plans to bring down costs on ordinary families. That’s why my plan is not finished, and the results aren’t finished either.”

Now tell us the one about the three bears. (okay, I’ve used that one before.)

Apparently, Biden is also a graduate of the prestigious William Jefferson Clinton School for the Advancement of Prevarication. First off, overspending is a primary cause of inflation, not a cure. Secondly, (relatively) moderate Democratic Senators Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona also opposed the plan, effectively killing Biden’s Build Back Better social-spending bill at this time-- and making Republican opposition academic. Moot. A non-factor.

If Biden’s “plan” is to fight inflation by dramatically increasing the already drunken-sailor rate of federal spending, he will make us all pine for the halcyon days of the Carter Era. That is akin to bloodletting the sick. It would be like fighting obesity by ramping up your caloric intake or fighting STDs by engaging in more frequent anonymous sexual encounters. In a word, it is preposterous.

But then a great many things are in the Biden Era.

Reflections On Father's Day


Reflecting on this Father’s Day, I realize once again how much I miss my dad. Dad was, as they used to say, a “real man.”

So-called “toxic Masculinity” is considered a terrible thing in today’s society. But it was “toxic masculinity” that built this country. It was toxic masculinity that defeated the British who had the world’s largest military at the time. It was toxic masculinity that defeated Fascism and Communism…and thwarted countless terror attacks in more recent years. It was toxic masculinity that gave American women the most freedom and highest standard of living of any nation in history.

My dad beat up two automobiles because their occupants, in two separate instances, randomly hurled vile insults and epithets at his offspring. (When I say he “beat up” the two sedans, I should add both were still drivable, just much the worse for wear.)

That is precisely the kind of man we need now, “a white knight,” as one of my late brother’s friends called him. Might have to drop “white” from the description so as not to appear racist, something my dad assuredly was not. But you get the idea: people of strength, courage, competence, integrity, honor, and yes, chivalry.

The obvious lack of these attributes, on a macro scale, is dangerous. Existentially so. It is specifically because Vladimir Putin sensed American weakness that he recently decided to invade Ukraine. That is not speculation. That is a fact, according to those in the know. And it is the same reason that China will soon attack Taiwan. Thousands are dead, millions displaced because of this infirmity.

Today, the feminized and infantilized America, with drag queens flouncing about everywhere, is in steep decline and possibly heading toward societal collapse. We are being mocked abroad and are ceding our place on the world’s stage.

So here’s to you—and those like you, dad—who won World War II, eventually forcing those who attacked us to surrender unconditionally. Those who came home, built careers and families, and didn’t complain about their sacrifice.

And those who, like my dad, rarely missed an opportunity to tell his wife and kids he loved them. My dad thought that was part of being a real man, too.

There are few like this left.

So, guys, heaven is blessed, even as things are less heavenly here on Earth for your absences.

“Toxic masculinity?” It is the lack of masculine virtues that is proving so harmful to us now.

Elites Using Fear To Control Us, Steal Our Freedoms


The elites must keep us afraid of something to fully control us…whether that something be “Russian collusion,” a “pandemic,” Donald Trump, or something else.

 If a society reaches the point where it is afraid even to speak the truth, it is very near its demise. This, sadly, is where we find ourselves now.

 Great resolve and courage are the only possible way to save our republic…or at least save face.

I’m not holding my breath.

Iraqi Speaker Vows To "Cut Off The Manhood" Of Anyone Claiming Iraq Will Normalize Relations With Israel


Mohammed Rikan Hadid al-Halbousi, Speaker of the Council of Representatives of Iraq, has been the source of some amusing, if vile, quotes attacking Israel-- and those who seek to normalize relations with the diminutive Middle Eastern democratic nation.

According to a Gateway Pundit video compilation of excerpts from his various speeches, Halbousi says that neither he nor Iraq will ever recognize Israel as a nation, or even extend their hands to Israelis. He tells officials of other nations, “Don’t even say their name, instead say the ‘occupying Israeli entity.’”

In remarks made to Sunni tribesmen in October of 2021, he states, “To hell with Israel. To hell with the Zionist entity. Damn them as many times as there are hairs on their heads.” Good one, Mohammed.

And, speaking of those who have apparently said Iraq may someday normalize relations with Israel, he added: “For those who accuse these provinces, I've said it and I'll say it again, I’ll cut off their manhood.”

Democrats rushed to embrace Halbousi’s words and sentiments, and quickly threatened to “cut off the manhood” of Donald Trump, his two male sons, Ron DeSantis, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, January 6ers, and “anyone else misinformed enough to disagree with us.”

Democrats subsequently apologized…for using the term “manhood,” and vowed to instead say “a person’s penis” going forward.

Norwegian Feminist Says "Males Can't Be Lesbians," Is Accused Of Hate Crime


Christina Ellingsen, a Norwegian feminist, was recently investigated by law enforcement for hate crime charges and could be facing up to three years in prison. What heinous act did Ellingsen commit?

According to ABC News, she reportedly criticized FRI, a Norwegian trans activism group, for teaching young kids that “males can be lesbians.” In October of 2021, Ellingsen, a representative of the feminist organization Women’s Declaration International (WDI), tweeted: “Why [does] FRI teach young people that males can be lesbians? Isn’t that conversion therapy?”*  

Ellingsen also sent out a second tweet, in which she stated: “Jentoft, who is male and an advisor in FRI, presents himself as a lesbian – that’s how bonkers the organization which supposedly works to protect young lesbians’ interests is. How does it help young lesbians when males claim to be lesbian, too?”*

Good question. It doesn’t. It helps males who may wish to have sex with the young lesbians.

Nonetheless, the two mild and truthful tweets were cited as evidence of “hate speech,” which, as Ellingsen might say, is “bonkers.”

           According to the Glinner Update, Ellingsen was recently accused by Amnesty International Norway of harassing Jentoft by telling him on national television: “You are a man. You cannot be a mother. To normalize the idea that men can be mothers is a defined form of discrimination against women.”

In 2018, Jentoft himself/herself stirred up controversy by tweeting: “Dear queer children of all ages! I know some of us have parents who don’t love us anymore. But thanks to a [Facebook] video I have just seen, I just want to inform you that I am actually a certified mother. So if you ever need a real motherly hug, I will be happy to oblige!”  I bet.

Males cannot be lesbians. Males cannot be mothers. Pigs are not horses. Period. To believe otherwise is a form of mental illness. If we can’t even agree on that, there is no point in dialogue. Which may be one reason why the Left is so eager to stifle speech and deny others their First Amendment Rights…even as they vilely smear and slander them.

New Zealand To Tax Sheep And Cattle Burps


New Zealand, currently a large agricultural exporter, may soon become the first country to force farmers to pay for emissions from livestock, the country’s “Ministry for Environment” said recently. The island nation released a draft plan that would tax agricultural emissions from belching sheep and cattle, beginning in 2025. Reports indicate that “short-lived” and “long-lived” gaseous emissions would be taxed differently, although a single measure to calculate their volume would be used.

Kiwi “Climate Change Minister” James Shaw stated, "There is no question that we need to cut the amount of methane we are putting into the atmosphere, and an effective emissions pricing system for agriculture will play a key part in how we achieve that.” Sure. Now tell us the one about the three bears.

The proposal includes incentives for farmers who reduce emissions through certain feed additives and allows on-farm forestry to be used to offset emissions. The Earth will be noticeably cooler by 2026, I’m sure.

Michael Ahie, chair of “He Waka Eke Noa,” a partnership between government, the primary sector, and iwi/Māori designed to help equip farmers and growers to measure, manage, and reduce on-farm agricultural greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to climate change, opined, "Our recommendations enable sustainable food and fiber production for future generations while playing a fair part in meeting our country's climate commitments.” He Waka what?

That’s so much bullsh*t (will New Zealand want to tax that, too?). This would be a serious disruption and detriment to the country’s farmers and food producers. Just what that nation—and the world-- needs now. 

A final decision on the scheme is expected in December.

We used to esteem farmers. And now we propose to penalize them for providing food for us because their livestock may belch on occasion? How the times have changed. Perhaps a better approach would be for the government to leave farmers alone. Unfortunately, those who rule over us are utterly incapable of leaving things—or us—alone. If something must be done, how about giving the bovines a little Milk of Magnesia? That might be a bit ironic for a cow, but what the hay? Or maybe slip them some Pepto-Bismol? Di-Gel? Flax seed?

We’d be better off addressing the emissions from Michael Moore, Joy Behar, Joy Reid, and Brian Stelter, among others. They are far more toxic.

If New Zealand ends up enacting the Belching Bovine Plan, it may not be a large agricultural exporter much longer.

Bees Now Fish In California?


The California Court of Schlemiels Appeals recently ruled that some types of bees are now legally considered to be…fish. That bizarre decision reversed a lower court’s ruling in favor of agricultural interests who argued the state’s Endangered Species Act protected only “birds, mammals, fish, amphibians, reptiles, and plants,” not bees or other insects. Proponents hailed the decision as “a win for bumblebees,” but the decision bugs me.

Back in 2018, the “Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation,” Defenders of Wildlife, and the Center for Food Safety all petitioned the Golden State’s Fish and Game Commission to add the Crotch’s bumblebee, Franklin’s bumblebee, Suckley Cuckoo bumblebee, and Western bumblebee to the state’s endangered species list.

The Court’s opinion gave the Commission the right to list invertebrate species like the bees as “endangered” even if they’re not aquatic animals. The judges wrote that “although the term fish is colloquially and commonly understood to refer to aquatic species,” the law makes the legal “definition of fish… not so limited,” according to a Fox News report. The Commission subsequently designated the four bees as “candidate species,” providing them interim protection while considering whether to classify them as endangered.

Then the Almond Alliance of California, the California Farm Bureau Federation, and five other agricultural groups filed a lawsuit in Sacramento County Superior Court in an attempt to clarify that the California Endangered Species Act does not protect insects. In 2020, the Superior Court ruled that the law’s reference to “invertebrates” had to be read in context and included only aquatic animals.

But this is 2022, and the Appeals Court decided that invertebrates, too, can be endangered and worthy of protection. If that is the case, California’s Republicans, another invertebrate species-- who truly are an endangered species-- should be added to the list, as well.

In any case, perhaps the bees identify as fish. Who are we to tell them otherwise?
