If you’ve been keeping up with the latest news on Andrew McCabe, you know that he’s now facing prosecution for “lacking candor” (lying) to the FBI. In what was the first shoe to drop within the Comey cabal, McCabe’s last minute appeal to not have the law applied to him failed. Keep in mind, lying to the FBI is the same law he, Comey, and Mueller relentlessly used to bludgeon others into submission.

But these people feel like they are part of a special class, and who could blame them? For as long as they’ve been in government, they’ve gotten to play by different rules. Naturally, that means the swamp is going to try to circle the wagons and McCabe has some “character witnesses” he’d like you to meet.

NEW: If Andrew McCabe ultimately does face charges, he’ll have some big names lined up as character witnesses. Over a dozen high-ranking ex-officials have committed to defending him, including Eric Holder, John Brennan, James Clapper and Susan Rice. https://t.co/i6j2G8ctfK

— Natasha Bertrand (@NatashaBertrand) September 16, 2019

This per Politico.

A cavalcade of Obama-era national security leaders have committed to testify on behalf of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe should he face trial over allegations that he misled officials about leaks to the media.

The lineup, detailed in a legal analysis from McCabe’s legal team, the substance of which was provided to the Justice Department, includes a string of former senior officials.

Here’s a good, concise response to this madness.

There is no doubt McCabe broke the law. The Inspector General found ample evidence he lied to investigators in his dealings with leaks to the press. In fact, his story was in direct contradiction to James Comey, which means Comey may be forced to testify against him to avoid charges himself.

Despite the clearness of the situation, these Obama officials are ready to rally around him. Doesn’t that tell us all we need to know about their corruption? That not even a non-partisan IG report from an Obama appointee (IG Horowitz) is enough for them to abandon someone like McCabe? Opposing Trump, even if one is a criminal, covers all sins.

Honestly, I’m thinking these four vouching for McCabe in court only makes things worse for him. They are a group of proven liars. Prosecutors would have a field day with them.

Writers of NYT’s Hit Piece On Kavanaugh: They Included Exculpatory Information, Editors Removed It

Westlake Legal Group Kavanaugh-4 Writers of NYT’s Hit Piece On Kavanaugh: They Included Exculpatory Information, Editors Removed It Robin Pogrebin New York Times correction Mainstream Media Liberal Elitism Lawrence O'Donnell Kate Kelly Justice Brett Kavanaugh Front Page Stories Featured Story fake news donald trump democrats corruption Chuck Ross Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power 2020

New York Times reporters and authors of the new book entitled “The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation,” Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, appeared on Lawrence O’Donnell’s show, MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” last night to address the media storm sparked by their latest hit piece on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Considering O’Donnell himself was recently exposed for reporting fake news, the women certainly chose a sympathetic venue.

For anyone who may have missed this story, Pogrebin and Kelly revived the now debunked story that Kavanaugh, as an undergraduate student at Yale, had exposed himself to a freshman girl at a wild college party. They alleged that this incident had been corroborated. However, the woman, now 53, has no recollection of this episode and refuses to be interviewed. Pogrebin and Kelly wrote:

We also uncovered a previously unreported story about Mr. Kavanaugh in his freshman year that echoes Ms. Ramirez’s allegation. A classmate, Max Stier, saw Mr. Kavanaugh with his pants down at a different drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student.

Forced to set the record straight, The New York Times issued a correction:

An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book’s account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party. The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.

Pogrebin and Kelly claim that this exculpatory information was included in their original draft, and “may have been removed from the original draft in the editing process.” The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross provided a clip from the program which aired last night. Ross writes, “Plot thickens. Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly claim that the qualifier about the other alleged Kavanaugh accuser not remembering an incident at Yale was included in the initial NYT draft but removed.”

Here are their remarks (emphasis mine):

O’Donnell: In your draft of the article, did it include those words that have since been added to the article?

Pogrebin and Kelly: It did.

O’Donnell: So somewhere in the editing process, those words were trimmed.

Pogrebin: Yeah, I think what happened actually was that, we have her name, and the Times doesn’t usually include the name of the victim. So, I think, in this case, the editors felt it was better to remove it and in removing her name, they removed the other reference to the fact that she didn’t remember it.

O’Donnell: So, in your draft for the Times, you used basically the exact words that are in the book, that deliberately left off the name, because that passage begins with the name and so, in their removal of the name, they ended up removing (inaudible). (He is abruptly cut off by Pogrebin.)

Pogrebin: The whole sentence. So I think it was just sort of an editing, you know, done in the haste in the editing process.

O’Donnell: Were you involved in the decision to amend this and do the correction – the addition online to the piece?

Pogrebin: We discussed it. We felt like there was so much heat, there’s so much – everyone has been seizing on various aspects of this that we certainly didn’t want it to be an issue anymore and we certainly never intended to mislead in any way. We wanted to give as full of a story as possible.

It’s pretty hard to buy this story. It’s impossible to know if the writers excluded the crucial information in their original draft or if they had included it and the editors removed it. But, either way, the omission of the exculpatory evidence from this story was intentional. Their goal is to inflict maximum damage on Justice Kavanaugh so that, if he ever does “take a scalpel” to Roe vs. Wade, they can use this story to discredit him.

The Democrats have been especially brutal in their coverage of the President lately. Their reporting is always negative, but recently, it seems to have become more savage than ever.

Here are several examples. Last week, CNN reported that a spy had to be extracted from Russia because Trump had been reckless with highly classified information. This news was proven false. The CIA took the unusual step of setting the record straight. Lawrence O’Donnell reported the fake news that Trump’s Deutsche Bank loans had been cosigned by Russian oligarchs, a fake story he was forced to apologize for. Based upon an irresponsible editorial in the Washington Post last week, Rachel Maddow reported that Trump is slow walking $250 million in aid to Ukraine until they agree to help him win the 2020 election by damaging Joe Biden’s campaign. House Democrats are reviving their “impeachment inquiry” that’s not really an impeachment inquiry, but an effort to obtain the grand jury information from the Mueller report. And now, the media is trying to resurrect their bogus and outrageous allegations against Justice Kavanaugh.

This avalanche of fake news smacks of desperation and it makes me wonder. Are they trying to get ahead of the release of the DOJ IG report on alleged FISA abuse, which is expected to be damning?

Women’s March Fires Anti-Semites, Immediately Hires More Anti-Semites

Westlake Legal Group linda-sarsour-620x414 Women’s March Fires Anti-Semites, Immediately Hires More Anti-Semites Women's March Tamika Mallory racists Politics New Anti-Semites media bias Louis Farrakhan Linda Sarsour Israel Hired Front Page Stories Front Page fired Featured Story democrats board members

It’s almost like the organization itself has issues and their connections to anti-Semitism haven’t just been mistakes?

As my colleague Brandon Morse shared earlier today, the Women’s March, famous for their delusional hatred of Trump and vaginal hats, finally cut ties with Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory (among others). The former board members had carried with them a long history of anti-Semitism and support for radical ideologies. Sarsour is of course a “Palestinian activist,” which means she rails against Jews and shills for Hamas. Mallory’s ties centered on Louis Farrakhan, where as recently as this year she refused to condemn his vile, racist rhetoric.

So what’s the Women’s March do after kicking out a group of women famous for their anti-Semitism? Hire more anti-Semites of course.

Bonus points for supporting Hamas I guess.

And just to be safe, they also brought on Sarsour ally Samia Assed, who’s shilled for Palestinian terrorists and doesn’t think Israel has a right to exist.

Oh, but it doesn’t stop there. The brilliant hires just kept on coming.

Apparently being a rabid anti-Semite and a fan of Louis Farahkan is a prerequisite for being on the board of the Women’s March. Clearly, they weren’t serious about reforming their dumpster fire of a movement. The best thing that could happen is for it shut down completely. The country is a better place given their loss of influence over the last few years.

Meanwhile, you won’t hear a peep about any of this in the major press despite the fact that they ran non-stop live coverage anytime there was a march by these people in the past. Imagine if a tea party group brought on a bunch of open white supremacists. You think CNN would mention it? You bet they would.

AOC Gets Dunked After Deleting, Then Reposting Tweet Deeming NY Times Smear Against Brett Kavanaugh “Credible”

In the immediate aftermath of the “report” from the New York Times over the weekend about an old-turned-new sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, a number of high-profile Democratic politicians and candidates for president weighed in and demanded his impeachment.

This in spite of the fact that the correction the paper issued hours after they were first alerted to it by conservative new media noted that the alleged victim does not even recall the alleged incident.

This is also in spite of the fact that the person who made the allegation originally is a Clinton-era liberal lawyer who has a vested interest in destroying Kavanaugh (which naturally calls into question the lawyer’s motivations):

We won’t even dwell on the fact that it was a liberal lawyer—one who happened to have been pitted against Kavanaugh during the Bill Clinton impeachment hearings—who opportunistically claims to have recalled this 35-year-old incident and reported it to the FBI.

As we all know, facts don’t care about your feelings, but Democrats don’t care about the facts. So the beat rolled on well into Monday with more Democrats lining up to board the “Impeach Kavanaugh” train, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY).

Apparently AOC didn’t want to waste the opportunity to insert herself into the debate, and she did so by posting a video clip of her during her 2018 campaign trashing highly educated “rich” men like Kavanaugh who she claimed “believed” they could get away with sexual assault.

While it’s not odd for Ocasio-Cortez to go the narcissistic route by making herself a focal point of any debate, what was odd about her tweets this morning about Kavanaugh is that she initially deleted the first one:

11 minutes after jtLOL noted she had deleted her original tweet, AOC reposted an identical one:

She followed up with another one from that same speech, because AOC has rarely seen a video of herself that she didn’t like.

But why did she delete her first tweet initially? This explanation from Free Beacon’s Alex Griswold is the only one that makes sense:

Yep. Might as well roll with it. Gotta get those RTSs, likes, and all the media attention that goes along with them.

In any event, no matter the reason for deleting and reposting, Ocasio-Cortez got dunked in the comments:

I want to believe that. I really do.

Ted Cruz Destroys NY Times Over Kavanaugh Smear, Says It Confirms the Paper’s Bias and Political Agenda

As I wrote earlier today, the New York Times has been rightly taken to the woodshed the last two days after a thinly sourced hit piece they did over the weekend on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh fell apart once The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway scrutinized the piece and found a crucial point missing:

The paper issued a correction several hours after this was pointed out to them …

… but not before the damage was done, and not before numerous Democratic candidates for president jumped on board the “Impeach Kavanaugh” train.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who is no stranger to smears coming from the mainstream media, ripped the Times in a must-read Twitter rant earlier today.

He started off by noting that the Kavanaugh hit piece would have gotten a student an “F” in high school, insinuating the piece should have never gotten past the paper’s editors. Because it did, Cruz suggested this proves the Times has a “political agenda”:

There’s just no other explanation but bias, asserted Cruz, as to why the paper omitted the critical information about alleged victim Deborah Ramirez:

Will any of the 2020 presidential candidates retract or amend their calls for impeachment against Kavanaugh? Of course not, Cruz opined:

Cruz is right. There is no legitimate justification whatsoever for why the paper published the article they did on Kavanaugh without noting the alleged victim does not even recall the alleged incident.

As I speculated earlier, I suspect this piece was published for one reason and one reason only: To help Democrats in their efforts to intimidate the sitting conservative-leaning Justices on the Supreme Court to rule on future cases in their favor in hopes that once they do, the media and leftists will finally leave them alone.

Cruz is also right in stating that it’s highly unlikely the NYT would have issued a correction had it not been for Hemingway’s tweet. Stories like these are why it’s very important that conservative new media types keep up the pressure on mainstream media outlets to own up to their mistakes and deliberate falsehoods.

Otherwise, nine times out of ten the fake news will stand as the official media-driven “record” in place of the truth.

How Very Big Tech-DC: Jeffrey Epstein’s Meeting with Elon Musk and Big Tech’s Elite

There are variations of a joke that have been making their way round the Internet.

A version goes something like this:

Q: What is the difference between pedophiles and Republicans?

A: Washington, D.C. and Big Tech will work with pedophiles.

We all know how both DCs Swamp Creatures and the monstrous Big Tech monsters feel about members of the GOP.

President Donald Trump is the first Republican in decades to actually take seriously the implementation of conservative policies.

And DC and Big Tech – the Swamp Elites – HATE him.

Why the Swamp Hates Trump

Washington Post’s Bezos Hates Trump

Elon Musk Is Not a Fan of Donald Trump

Leaked Video: Google Leadership’s Dismayed Reaction to Trump Election

And whenever Big Tech companies discover Republicans on their payroll – they carve them out as if they were melanoma cells.

One of the Swamp Elite’s favorite people – was Jeffrey Epstein.

You remember Jeffrey Epstein.  Epstein committed suicide in jail in August – after FINALLY getting (again) arrested after decades of sexually assaulting underage girls.

‘I’m Not a Pedophile’: Remorseless Jeffrey Epstein Said ‘Children He Raped and Assaulted Did Not Look Underage, and Claimed HE Was a Victim’ In His Final Interviews

The ‘Sex Slave’ Scandal That Exposed Pedophile Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein

Epstein sounded like a really pleasant fellow.

But Epstein was rarely alone on his escapades.

Jeffrey Epstein’s World of Wealth and Powerful Friends

And sometimes – members of DCs Swamp Elite were on board and along for the ride.

Flight Logs Show Bill Clinton Flew on Sex Offender’s Jet Much More Than Previously Known

Well that’s hardly a galloping shocker.  But….

Jeffrey Epstein Documents Could Expose Powerful Politicians

Accused Sex Trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s Political Connections: A Guide

Flight Logs Released from Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘Lolita Express’

And when it came to political coin – Epstein was like serial woman assaulter Harvey Weinstein.

Both loved lavishing lots of coin on Democrats.  Which bought both of them lots of closed eyes and turned heads – when it came to their sexual depravities.

Democrats Pressured to Return Donations from Harvey Weinstein

Billionaire Sex Offender Epstein Gave Heavily to Democrats

The Left desperately tried to tie Trump to Epstein.  Except….

Trump Banned Epstein From Mar-a-Lago Years Ago, Here’s Why…:

“‘…because Epstein sexually assaulted an underage girl at the club, according to court documents….’”

You know who didn’t ban Epstein from…anything at all?  Big Tech’s Elite.

In 2011, Jeffrey Epstein Was A Known Sex Offender. The Leaders Of Amazon, Google, And Tesla Dined With Him Anyway:

“After pleading guilty to charges of soliciting prostitution from an underage girl, Jeffrey Epstein spent part of 2011 reintroducing himself to elite society.

“A March 2011 dinner with the most powerful figures in tech showed just how connected he was…..

“Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Google cofounder Sergey Brin, and others were all in town for TED, the annual conference with the slogan ‘ideas worth spreading.’  They were among friends at an annual event called the ‘billionaires’ dinner’….

“This elite dinner, and another similarly select gathering that Epstein attended later that year, were both organized by the New York literary agent John Brockman, whose exclusive intellectual club, called Edge, seems to have played a role in Epstein’s efforts to regain credibility and influence in circles of the rich and powerful.

“At the time, he was less than two years removed from finishing a 13-month prison term in a Florida state jail for soliciting prostitution from an underage girl….

“Epstein wasn’t named in the photos posted on the Edge website, but he appears in the background of a snap of Zack Bogue, a venture capitalist and husband of Marissa Mayer, then a vice president at Google….

“Other photos show the participants mingling before or after taking their seats. Also present were Bezos; Musk; Brin; Salar Kamangar, then CEO of (Google-owned) YouTube; Mayer, who the following year left Google to become CEO of Yahoo; and Anne Wojcicki, Brin’s then-wife and CEO of genetic testing startup 23andMe….

“Epstein attended a second exclusive Edge event in July 2011, held over a weekend at a winery in St. Helena, California. There, he mingled with a handful of leading scientists and several science journalists, plus wealthy power brokers including Sean Parker, former president of Facebook, and Nicholas Pritzker, a venture capitalist and former CEO of the Hyatt Development Corporation. Pritzker’s venture firm has invested in Uber, (Musk’s companies) Tesla and SpaceX and he is now on the board of vaping startup Juul Labs.”

That is a veritable Who’s Who – of Big Tech Elites.

What have we learned?

Nothing new, really – if you’ve been paying any attention at all.

Just like DCs Elite, Big Tech’s Elite will put up with a whole lot of really heinous behavior – if you keep kicking in huge coin to fund their activities.

And/or provide illegal extracurricular activities in which they can engage.

All of which begs a set of separate, specific questions: Of the Donald Trump Administration – about government-funded perpetual failure Elon Musk.

Musk owns the aforementioned SpaceX and Tesla – and SolarCity.

All three of which – have (at least) two things in common:

They have each taken billions of dollars in government money – and they are all miserable failures.

Elon Musk: The $5-Billion-Government-Money-Recipient ‘Genius’

Welfare King Elon Musk: No One Rewards Failure Like Government

Elon Musk and the Art of Failing Successfully

The Many Failures of Elon Musk, Captured in One Giant Infographic

Musk Defends Receiving $4.9 Billion in Government Support for Tesla, SolarCity and SpaceX

Heavily Subsidized and Failing: Elon Musk and SolarCity

Elon Musk, Tesla, and the Solar Roof Tile Fraud

Taxpayer Subsidies Helped Tesla Motors, So Why Does Elon Musk Slam Them?

Musk Calls Out SpaceX Rival for Receiving Billion Dollar Subsidy

Elon Musk on SpaceX: ‘I Always Thought We Would Fail’

About which Musk couldn’t care less – so long as it’s our massive money he’s losing.

If ever there was a person at the Big Tech-DC Swamp crossroads – it is Elon Musk.

Almost no one has his snout more deeply buried in the DC money trough.

Almost no one is more beloved for his many, MANY government-funded failures.

Musk is Big Tech’s biggest DC Swamp Creature.

So why hasn’t Donald Trump ejected Musk – the way he ejected Epstein?

The Trump Administration – has kept the Musk government gravy train a-rolling.

Despite Musk’s badmouthing Trump prior to the 2016 election.

Here’s Everything Elon Musk Has Ever Said About Donald Trump

Despite Musk endorsing Democrat Andrew “$1K a Month In Vote-Buying Bribes for All” Yang for 2020.

Despite ALL of this – we get:

Trump Praises Elon Musk

Vice President Mike Pence Met With Elon Musk

VP Pence’s meeting would have only made sense – if he had taken it to deliver pre-President Trump’s famous phrase:

You’re fired.”

It’s WAY past time – to FINALLY get uber-failure Welfare King Elon Musk off the government teat.

A video clip has resurfaced of Joe Biden in action. This isn’t something from a decade ago where he’s commenting on Indians owning 7-11s and Dunkin Donuts shops in Delaware

or asking crippled guys to arise and walk

This is from 2017 and the scene is him at the dedication of the Joseph R. Biden Jr. Aquatic Center in Wilmington, DE.

You owe it to yourself to watch this but this is the Cliff’s Notes.

In 1962, Biden was a lifeguard at the pool. In his story, he was the only white lifeguard in a pool with all black staff and a mostly black clientele. The villain is a local tough…put the coffee or other drink down NOW…called “Corn Pop” who leads an all black gang called, naturally, “the Romans.” According to Biden, Corn Pop would insult Biden’s mom so while Biden was crying or whatever gang members could sneak into the pool. The matter came to a head over Corn Pop using the 3-meter dive board.

“This was the diving board area, and I was one of the guards, and they weren’t allowed to — it was a 3-meter board. And if you fell off sideways, you landed on the damn, er, darn cement over there,” Biden said.

“And Corn Pop was a bad dude. And he ran a bunch of bad boys. And back in those days — to show how things have changed — one of the things you had to use, if you used Pomade in your hair, you had to wear a bathing cap. And so he was up on the board and wouldn’t listen to me. I said, ‘Hey, Esther, you! Off the board, or I’ll come up and drag you off.’ Well, he came off, and he said, ‘I’ll meet you outside.’”

Biden’s comments were a reference to competitive swimmer-turned actress Esther Williams, who died in 2013.

“My car was mostly, these were all public housing behind us,” Biden continued. “My car – there was a gate on here. I parked my car outside the gate. And he said, ‘I’ll be waiting for you. He was waiting for me with three guys with straight razors. Not a joke. There was a guy named Bill Wright the only white guy and he did all the pools. He was a mechanic. And I said, ‘What am I gonna do?’ And he said. ‘Come down here in the basement, where all the mechanics- – where all the pool builder is.’ You know the chain, there used to be a chain that went across the deep end. And he cut off a six-foot length of chain, and folded it up and he said, ‘You walk out with that chain, and you walk to the car and say, ‘you may cut me man, but I’m gonna wrap this chain around your head.’”

Biden continued: “I said, ‘You’re kidding me.’” He said, ‘No if you don’t, don’t come back.’ And he was right. So I walked out with the chain. And I walked up to my car. And in those days, you remember the straight razors, you had to bang ’em on the curb, gettin’ em rusty, puttin’ em in the rain barrel, gettin’ em rusty? And I looked at him, but I was smart, then. I said, ‘First of all,’ I said, ‘when I tell you to get off the board, you get off the board, and I’ll kick you out again, but I shouldn’t have called you Esther Williams, and I apologize for that. I apologize.’ But I didn’t know that apology was gonna work.”

“He said, ‘you apologize to me?’” Biden went on. “I said, ‘I apologize but not for throwing you out, but I apologize for what I said.’ He said, ‘OK,’ closed that straight razor, and my heart began to beat again.”

I have to admit, given Biden’s reputation for making things up, I was, even as an unambiguously white guy, pretty much in the same place as The Root writer, Michael Harriott

But, there appears to be some truth in the story. This guy, who, by the way has never encountered a liberal Democrat he will not fluff, comes up with evidence that there was actually a gang based in Northeast Wilmington public housing called “The Romans” and that there was a least one guy in Wilmington at the time who was at some point in his life called “Cornpop.” And some notable locals claim to know all about this event:

And here’s Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher adding to the story, for what that might be worth (not much, is my guess):

Here’s the thing. Just because various parts of this story are true doesn’t mean the story is true. The odds of significant political figures in Delaware blowing the whistle of Joe Biden approach zero. So we can really discount the third party claims to the story as unreliable. The fact that a gang named The Romans existed doesn’t mean they went to the pool where Joe Biden worked. There is nothing in the obit of William “Cornpop” Morris to indicate that a) he was affiliated with a street gang or b) that he was even a Wilmington native. He is of the same age as Biden and there is the nickname but none of that adds up to Biden’s story. And the fact that the usual rescue squad for Democrat politicians on fire is in operation doesn’t give one a great feeling of comfort:

The story may be true or it may not. Outside of Jiffy Pop or Lollipop showing up to give corroborating testimony, we’ll most likely never have conclusive proof that the story is real and not another Bidenesque adventure that has entertained us over the years. What we can say is that a) Biden has been telling it for a while and b) there are verifiable factoids in the story that indicate something like the story happened but my gut feeling is that the actual story is something very dissimilar to Biden’s rendition of the tale, just like the story of him awarding the Navy Cross to the tearful and reluctant Navy captain.

California Keeps A ‘No-Travel’ List; They’ve Just Added Another State To It

Westlake Legal Group california-flag California Keeps A ‘No-Travel’ List; They’ve Just Added Another State To It Xavier Becerra progressives Gender Issues Front Page Stories Featured Story entitlements democrats Culture California No-Travel List California Assembly Bill 1887 Allow Media Exception

 

In 2015, knowing they must do something to “avoid supporting or financing discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people,” the California Legislature passed Assembly Bill 1887. The law states:

AB 1887 prohibits a state agency, department, board, or commission from requiring any state employees, officers, or members to travel to a state that, after June 26, 2015, has enacted a law that (1) has the effect of voiding or repealing existing state or local protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression; (2) authorizes or requires discrimination against same-sex couples or their families or on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression; or (3) creates an exemption to antidiscrimination laws in order to permit discrimination against same-sex couples or their families or on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. In addition, the law prohibits California from approving a request for state-funded or state-sponsored travel to such a state.

There are currently ten states on the No-Travel list, all of which are right leaning.

Alabama
Kansas
Kentucky
Mississippi
North Carolina
Oklahoma
South Carolina
South Dakota
Tennessee
Texas
Exceptions

The state will grant exceptions in cases where the travel is “required.”

Last week, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra added a new state to the list – Iowa. The reason? Because Iowa’s medicaid program will not cover transgender surgical procedures.

Becerra issued a statement which said, “The Iowa Legislature has reversed course on what was settled law under the Iowa Civil Rights Act, repealing protections for those seeking gender-affirming healthcare. California has taken an unambiguous stand against discrimination and government actions that would enable it.”

According to the Sacramento Bee:

Becerra’s order means public employees and college students may not travel to Iowa under provisions of a 2016 California law.

Twelve years ago, Iowa’s Legislature made gender identity a protected characteristic under its Civil Rights Act, which prohibited refusing service to or discriminating against people based on their gender identity preferences.

In March 2019, the state’s Supreme Court ruled the protection extended to gender transition surgeries under the state’s Medicaid program. Two months later, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a bill banning Medicaid spending on the surgeries.

Two issues arise from this story. First, the cost of this surgery ranges from $20,000 to $30,000. I see it as an elective surgery. Many others, including the 9th District Court of Appeals, of course, view it as the medically necessary treatment for gender dysphoria.

The appeals court recently ruled in favor of the plaintiff, a prison inmate, who believes the taxpayers of the state of Idaho should pay for his transgender surgery.

In upholding the decision of the lower court, a three-judge panel, cited the Eighth Amendment of the Constitution’s “protection against cruel and unusual punishment.”

Payment for this surgery will likely become mandatory in most states in the next few years.

Perhaps the bigger issue is California having a No-Travel list in the first place. Clearly, they have the legal right to keep such a list, but who are they to call out and to impose their beliefs upon other states? With an eleventh state being added to their list on October 4th, that means nearly 25% of states are off-limits to those traveling on state business. Will they still pay for state university athletes to travel to say Oklahoma or Texas for a bowl game? Probably. But if they grant an exception for that, another group will be put off.

Here’s hoping for a major rebuke to all of this wokeness in the 2020 election. It’s really becoming excessive and those who promote it are starting to appear pathetic.
