Report: A Drug Being Used to Stop Puberty in Transgender Children Has Killed Over 6000

Westlake Legal Group photographer-920128_1280-620x408 Report: A Drug Being Used to Stop Puberty in Transgender Children Has Killed Over 6000 Uncategorized transgender Science michael laidlaw mario lopez lupron Health Front Page Stories Featured Story FDA Culture children Allow Media Exception

 

 

Stopping nature is all the rage these days, but reportedly, young people are at mortal risk from the halt.

According to The Christian Post, data from the Food & Drug Administration reveals 6,300 adults have died from a drug currently being used to block puberty in transgendered children:

Between 2012 and June 30 of this year, the FDA documented over 40,764 adverse reactions suffered by patients who took Leuprolide Acetate (Lupron), which is used as a hormone blocker. More than 25,500 reactions logged from 2014-2019 were considered ‘serious,’ including 6,370 deaths.

Might the news be a deterrent to altering kids’ natural biological processes? Hollywood seems to be leading the pack in letting tykes decide they’re the opposite sex (here and here), and Mario Lopez got recently reamed for saying he didn’t understand it (here).

But physiologically altering a body which hasn’t yet been fully formed is next-level.

And that usage hasn’t been approved by the FDA:

Lupron is being prescribed off-label for use in children who have been diagnosed with gender dysphoria despite the lack of formal FDA approval for that purpose. The drug is clinically approved for treatment of precocious puberty, a condition where children start their pubertal processes at an abnormally early age and the blocker is administered for a short time until the proper age.

As noted by The Daily Wire, a previous CP piece claimed third graders are being given such powerful drugs:

Under the nebulous concept of “gender identity,” children as young as 8 are receiving injections for gender transition treatment… … The phrase was defined in a recent court case as a person’s “core internal sense” of their own gender and that it was the “primary factor” in determining their sex, not biology.

There’s a host of changes being hoisted upon Mother Nature.

From TDW:

Gender-confused teen girls as young as 13, [California-based endocrinologist Michael Laidlaw] warned, are having their breasts removed via mastectomy procedures, and boys the age of 17 are developing penises the developmental age of a nine-year-old’s or losing sexual sensation all together due to hormone blockers. Laidlaw cited TLC’s I Am Jazz star Jazz Jennings as such an example. Jazz, who is male-to-female transgender, has reportedly never experienced sexual sensations or orgasms because of puberty-blocking drugs, the endocrinologist said.

Michael called the injection of drugs such as Lupron “experiment[s]”:

“This whole thing is an experiment on children,” Laidlaw asserted. “We are ignoring the voices of desisters and people who have come out of this and recognize their sex. And the NIH is allowing unethical research to be conducted on adolescents, in my opinion.”

More conventionally, Lupron is used to treat prostate cancer.

Smarter Than the Real One: Mini-AOC Returns, Has Some Qs for “Classmate” Greta Thunberg’s Defenders (Video)

Screen grab via the @RealMiniAOC Twitter account.

Back in July, Kira Davis wrote about the left’s despicable doxxing of the family behind the cute “Mini AOC” Twitter account. The personal threats and invasion into their privacy forced the family to stop making the parody videos mocking the real AOC that made so many people laugh, but it was understandable. Safety first and all that.

But in the aftermath of liberals recently holding up 16-year-old climate change activist Greta Thunberg as some sort of unquestionable absolute moral authority on all things climate-related, Mini AOC decided she’d stayed in the shadows long enough, and returned.

Her latest video tackles a variety of topics. Climate change, of course, is one of them. So is transgenderism, which Mini AOC originally thought equated to Mother Nature transitioning into being Father Nature!

But she saved her strongest criticisms for the liberal defenders of her “former classmate” Thunberg, who Mini AOC says she hasn’t seen in person since “George Soros showed up and took Greta out of class one day.” Why defend her, Mini AOC asked liberals, when you forced me off the Internet? Why is it ok for teenager Thunberg to speak for adults, but I can’t do it because I’m just a kid?, she wondered.

In short: Why all the double standards?

Very cute. And I must say, the kid makes some good points.

Oh, and one more thing:

Two Alleged Child Rapists Released And On The Run After Local Police Declined To Hold Them For ICE

Westlake Legal Group nypd-780387_1280-620x414 Two Alleged Child Rapists Released And On The Run After Local Police Declined To Hold Them For ICE Recidivism Rape New York New Jersey migrants law immigration Ice Front Page Stories Featured Story detainers crime

Two separate police departments — one in New York and one in New Jersey — released alleged child child rapists back into the public after Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) requested they be held, and those requests denied.

At least one of the men was arrested for what sounds like assault and restraint of a child younger than 16. The other is charged with rape of a minor under 17.

ICE told local news outlets that they requested both men be held until ICE was able to come pick them up. But jails denied those requests and subsequently released the suspects. Both men are now listed as fugitives.

ICE says the first man — Luciano Trejo-Dominguez – was arrested by Vineland, New Jersey police for allegedly restraining and sexually assaulting a child younger than 16 on Aug. 12.

Over the next two days, ICE and Pacific Enforcement Response Center both filed detainers to have Trejo-Dominguez held at the Cumberland County Jail. Those requests were denied and the alleged rapist was released on Aug. 23.

Trejo-Dominguez has been charged with aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault of a victim 13-15 years-old, criminal restraint, criminal sexual contact, and endangering the welfare of a child.

The other man – Joaquin Rodriguez Quiroz — was arrested in Westchester County New York on charges of 3rd degree rape and was released after posting bond despite attempts by ICE to have the man detained until ICE could arrive and take custody.

Just this week, ICE arrested 54 people in New Jersey and complained that local jails were releasing wanted immigrants under a new rule that allowed local jails latitude to make a release decision relative to the seriousness of the crime.

The arrested immigrants included people from a dozen countries, including 21 from Mexico, nine from El Salvador and seven from Brazil, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement officials said.

The sweep targeted immigrants living in the country illegally who had been released from local jails in New Jersey instead of being turned over to ICE’s enforcement and removal operations — known as ERO — for possible deportation.

The new rules — called the Immigrant Trust Directive — say local jails can’t honor an “ICE detainer” in New Jersey unless the detainee has been charged with or convicted of a serious crime or has a pending deportation order from a judge.

ICE officials objected to new rules, calling New Jersey a “sanctuary state” for failing to hold undocumented immigrants until ICE agents can pick them up. New Jersey officials have said they do not believe it is legal for local jails to hold prisoners for ICE without a court order.

ICE has also been conducting sweeps this week across New York, arresting 82 people over five days. According to ICE, over half of those 82 arrested in New York had previously been in custody awaiting ICE following a detainer request that was then denied.

Unsolicited Advice: Yes, You Can Attend That Wedding At A Plantation Venue

Westlake Legal Group oak-alley-plantation-439879_640-620x418 Unsolicited Advice: Yes, You Can Attend That Wedding At A Plantation Venue wedding etiquette Unsolicited Advice selfish guests plantation History Front Page Stories Featured Story discomfort Culture

Image by JamesDeMers from Pixabay

Welcome to Unsolicited Advice, the weekly column in which I give advice to people who never asked for it and who don’t even know who I am.

Last week we delved into the uncomfortable world of actor Thomas Middleditch and his not-so-stable open marriage. This week we’re continuing our “marriage” theme with a peek at a plea for help to Slate’s Dear Prudence (definitely go give them some link love for bringing us this amazing post this week. It’s only fair).

A distressed wedding guest wrote in to ask if she/he should be expected to attend her/his dear, close friend’s wedding at a plantation.

Part of my friend’s wedding is taking place on a former plantation in the South. Members of my family were slaves on a plantation not that many generations ago, and the thought of attending the wedding of a white couple there is making me uncomfortable. I love my friend and her fiancée, and I don’t believe there’s any actively bad intent on their part, except maybe thoughtlessness. I don’t want to cause her any pain or make it seem like I’m putting her down, but I’d prefer not to attend the event that’s taking place there. I could still attend all of the other wedding events. What are your thoughts on this? I know that weddings in these types of venues are common, so I’m sure my discomfort is too. Is there a way to bow out of the event with kindness to the couple?

I won’t spoil Prudie’s answer but it’s worth a read…if only to laugh. Click here to read the response. 

But this is Unsolicited Advice. It is my unwelcome response that is the primary purpose here, so here goes.

Dear Plantation Patty:

I can sympathize with the initial pang of discomfort at the thought of attending a social event at a plantation venue. I think most of us automatically feel that at the mention of the word ‘plantation’. That’s not weird.

What’s weird is your inability to set aside that discomfort for a few hours of your year and celebrate an amazing event with a couple you claim to love. You say you don’t believe there was any bad intent on their part…it’s troubling that you even mention that out loud. These are the people you love. What would their potential ‘bad intent’ have been in the first place?

“We’re planning a ceremony to celebrate our lifetime commitment in front of God and family, but we’ll only do it if we can simultaneously celebrate slavery and make all of our black friends uncomfortable as hell!”

I doubt that was ever even on the table. Which brings me to another point. You say they don’t have bad intent but describe the move as “thoughtless”. Well, God forbid the bride and groom not be thinking about you and the complexities of American history on the biggest day of their lives. Having planned my own wedding 150 years ago, I can guarantee you that your comfort level is the last thing on their mind. What they do probably have in mind is your presence at an event they want to share with you…because they love you. You’re so focused on the “thoughtlessness” of having a wedding event at a former plantation that you’ve skipped right over the part about how much these people mean to you and how much you mean to them. They’ve invited you to share in a once in a lifetime event – their wedding. They must really care about you.

All you can see is the past.

I say “former” plantation because I’m assuming they no longer use slave labor to run their business. I’m willing to bet they don’t even have crops there anymore. If they are still keeping slaves on that plantation then you should definitely not go. And also call the police.

Listen, Patty…this whole country has an “uncomfortable history” but it doesn’t stop you from walking around over paths once graced by the feet of slaves. It doesn’t keep you from going into buildings built by slaves. It doesn’t keep you from walking in the same parks and open spaces that once saw the horror of civil war and the abuse of Native Americans. Everywhere you walk in this country is “problematic” if you want to use your point of view. People picnic in spots that were once soaked with the blood of young civil war-era soldiers who died horrifically and anonymously.

Times change, people change, societies change.

Plantations have always been a business. They continued to operate long after slavery was abolished and (as you have pointed out) still operate to this day, though under very different circumstances. Remembering what they used to be does not mean we have to eschew what they’ve become.

Your first thought was to run. My first thought was, “Man, look how far we’ve come.” Your ancestors were once enslaved there, and now here you are walking onto that property as a free and (presumably successful) person, a Black person being invited as an important guest at the wedding of your White friends. Where once Black people walked in sadness on those grounds, you now walk in victory. Your ancestors could have only dreamed of belonging there the way that you belong there right now.

America is our home. We built it, fought to enjoy it, spilled blood to get to be where you are this very moment. Why on earth would you take a step backwards from all that hard work by automatically segregating yourself from spaces where you not only belong but absolutely should be?

Because, Patty…this is your country. So enjoy it. If you love your friends, go be with them. There are no slave drivers, no masters, no auction blocks there anymore. Just like the rest of America, that place with the shameful past has progressed to become something quite different.

Look, if you can’t set aside your historical discomfort then at least just deal with it and go. No, your friends weren’t thinking about you when they booked that venue, nor should they be. I once attended a Polish wedding. I was uncomfortable as hell. Have you ever been to one? The ceremony is two hours and then you spend the reception doing their Polish dances, which naturally we knew nothing of. It all just seemed like organized chaos to our inexperienced minds. My husband and I were the only Black people there. Did we feel uncomfortable and out of place. You betcha. Did we ever once ask the bride and groom to why they didn’t think about our comfort level before they planned their wedding? Of course not. You shouldn’t even entertain the notion that they are “thoughtless”. They are getting married. End of story.

Go celebrate with your friends. You say that only a “part” of the event will be there anyway…so why can’t you just spare a few minutes of your own comfort to raise a glass with the people you say you love and then be on your way? This drama is so unnecessary and frankly, narcissistic.

There is no “kind” way to tell your friends you’re choosing your own feelings about a historical property over celebrating with the people you love. They will think you are being selfish…because you are.

Go be a friend. This is what friends do – we celebrate with each other.

If anyone there has slaves you have my permission to peace out.

Mark Levin is on Fire: Calls on Adam Schiff to Release 90 Days of Texts, Phone Calls, Emails Because He is a Leaker

Westlake Legal Group mark-levin-620x349 Mark Levin is on Fire: Calls on Adam Schiff to Release 90 Days of Texts, Phone Calls, Emails Because He is a Leaker Sen. Murphy Sen. Menendez Sen. Leahy Sen. Durbin Sean Hannity Nancy Pelosi Mark Levin Joe Biden hunter biden Front Page Stories Foreign Policy Featured Story donald trump democrats corruption Allow Media Exception adam schiff Abuse of Power 2020

Mark Levin, “The Great One,” appeared on “Hannity” last night to weigh in on the whistleblower’s complaint. He was on top of his game. Even President Trump was impressed. He posted Levin’s monologue to his twitter account.

After listening to Levin’s defense of Trump and his attacks on Schiff and all of the rest of them, I think Trump should hire him as his attorney. Levin is smart as a whip, articulate and he’s aggressive.

Levin finds the complaint to be “1000 times worse than the transcript of the phone call” between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. We all noticed a Grand Canyon size disconnect between the two documents.

Levin points out that a Ukrainian policy guy from the CIA doesn’t write like this. It reads like “a legal brief which has been vetted by lawyers.” And he wants to know who wrote it. Who was the whistleblower working with? Adam Schiff, Democratic staffers?

The whistleblower’s attorney said it’s important to retain his client’s anonymity. That request infuriates Levin. “Too bad pal. Too late. You want to impeach the President.”

And he noted something that a lot of us have wondered about. Why aren’t the Republican leaders in the Senate doing more to defend Trump? Why aren’t they sending out subpoenas? Calling for hearings, holding press conferences.

I would have expected a more spirited defense in the House as well. Rep. Devin Nunes (CA) is and has always been a champion. So have Jim Jordan (OH), Matt Gaetz (FL), Doug Collins (GA), Steve Scalise (LA) and several others. But many of them have been a disappointment. Kevin McCarthy spoke to the press on Tuesday and I wondered if he had a pulse.

Anyway, Levin is one of my all time favorites.

Read the transcript or watch the video below.

You know, after I watched this hearing, it’s like waterboarding, by the way. When it comes to Trump, Democrats and the media are like drug addicts looking for their next fix…Their eyes are popping out of their head. The sweetbreads are coming down their face.

They’re really freaking out… I can tell you that a CIA agent can’t write something like this, this is a legal brief,” said Levin.

First of all, as a practicing lawyer, I went through this. And I can tell you that a CIA agent, who is a policy guy for Ukraine can’t write something like this. This is a legal brief. This was vetted through lawyers. I want to know who wrote this. I want to know who this man spoke to…

In the New York Times today which, of course, runs cover for the Democrats and goes after the President of the United States, they say today that this man’s lawyer, who by the way, worked for Schumer and Clinton, doesn’t want the identity of this man known.

Too bad pal. Too late. You want to impeach our President using this BS. We want to know all about your guy. And I love today’s hearing where they wrap this guy in the whistleblower statute…

He knew nothing, he heard that certain people at the White House were upset…Isn’t it funny that not a single person with first-hand knowledge filed a whistleblower complaint?

This guy files one. This guy’s represented by Democrats. I want to know if Adam Schiff, the Democrat staffers or any of the Democrats were involved in orchestrating this. This leak and coupe campaign. Did it in Russia, did it with Kavanaugh, it’s the same damn thing.

This is a rogue CIA agent. People might say, but it’s the CIA. Look what they did to the FBI. Look at this guy Brennan, a complete reprobate.

You know, when the CIA overthrew the Iranian government years ago, the liberal Democrats were upset. When they overthrew Allende in Chile, a socialist marxist, the Democrats were upset. When they tried to overthrow Castro, the Democrats were upset…But when they try to overthrow our President, they’re whistleblowers. They’re heroes. They’re courageous. Mr. Schiff, why don’t release 90 days of your phone calls? 90 days of your texts. 90 days of your emails. Cause I know something pal. You’re a leaker. You’re devious. Same with your staff.

Nancy Pelosi went to the microphone, like a dictator, and announced ‘We’re going to begin an official, formal impeachment inquiry…Why would she do that before she got the transcript? Why, because she had this or she knew about it. (Levin holds up the whistleblower’s complaint.) From the little CIA operative.

This document is a thousand times worse than the actual transcript which isn’t even cited in this document (the whistleblower’s complaint).

Now, they’re trying to rewrite this document to try and get it to work with this document (the transcript of the call). The President of the United States phone call has nothing wrong with it. It’s a long conversation. I notice in the media, they’re kind of moving sentences around, trying to attach things. Why don’t you read the whole thing. But you won’t do that. Why? Well I have a question. Why shouldn’t the President of the United States in a conversation with the President of Ukraine say ‘Hey look. Would you take a look at this? We’ve had news reports, books’ about Hunter Biden, Joe Biden obstructing just in the Ukraine, blackmailing the government.’

The President is supposed to sit there and act stupid? No, he says among a thousand other things. You might want to look into this.

‘Wow, that’s an impeachable offense.’

You now have four U.S. senators who did far worse than that. Three of them, Menendez, Leahy, and Durbin who insisted that the Ukrainian government, insisted, investigate our President. You had another one, Murphy, from Connecticut, who insisted that the Ukrainian government not investigate Biden. How come they’re not facing ethics complaints? How come they’re not facing expulsion acts in the United States Senate?

And finally, where the hell are the Republican chairman in the Senate? Why aren’t they issuing subpoenas? Why don’t they pretend they’re Elijah Cummings or Jerry Nadler? Or Schiff for that matter? I know it’s an ugly thought, but issue 100 subpoenas. Go after their bank accounts, go after their friends, go after their relatives. Go after their accountants. Go after their records. And if they don’t go for it, hold em in contempt.

Mark Levin, “The Great One,” appeared on “Hannity” last night to weigh in on the whistleblower’s complaint. He was on top of his game. Even President Trump was impressed. He posted Levin’s monologue to his twitter account.

After listening to Levin’s defense of Trump and his attacks on Schiff and all of the rest of them, I think Trump should hire him as his attorney. Levin is smart as a whip, articulate and he’s aggressive.

Levin finds the complaint to be “1000 times worse than the transcript of the phone call” between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. We all noticed a Grand Canyon size disconnect between the two documents.

Levin points out that a Ukrainian policy guy from the CIA doesn’t write like this. It reads like “a legal brief which has been vetted by lawyers.” And he wants to know who wrote it. Who was the whistleblower working with? Adam Schiff, Democratic staffers?

The whistleblower’s attorney said it’s important to retain his client’s anonymity. That request infuriates Levin. “Too bad pal. Too late. You want to impeach the President.”

And he noted something that a lot of us have wondered about. Why aren’t the Republican leaders in the Senate doing more to defend Trump? Why aren’t they sending out subpoenas? Calling for hearings, holding press conferences.

I would have expected a more spirited defense in the House as well. Rep. Devin Nunes (CA) is and has always been a champion. So have Jim Jordan (OH), Matt Gaetz (FL), Doug Collins (GA), Steve Scalise (LA) and several others. But many of them have been a disappointment. Kevin McCarthy spoke to the press on Tuesday and I wondered if he had a pulse.

Anyway, Levin is one of my all time favorites.

Read the transcript or watch the video below.

You know, after I watched this hearing, it’s like waterboarding, by the way. When it comes to Trump, Democrats and the media are like drug addicts looking for their next fix…Their eyes are popping out of their head. The sweetbreads are coming down their face.

They’re really freaking out… I can tell you that a CIA agent can’t write something like this, this is a legal brief,” said Levin.

First of all, as a practicing lawyer, I went through this. And I can tell you that a CIA agent, who is a policy guy for Ukraine can’t write something like this. This is a legal brief. This was vetted through lawyers. I want to know who wrote this. I want to know who this man spoke to…

In the New York Times today which, of course, runs cover for the Democrats and goes after the President of the United States, they say today that this man’s lawyer, who by the way, worked for Schumer and Clinton, doesn’t want the identity of this man known.

Too bad pal. Too late. You want to impeach our President using this BS. We want to know all about your guy. And I love today’s hearing where they wrap this guy in the whistleblower statute…

He knew nothing, he heard that certain people at the White House were upset…Isn’t it funny that not a single person with first-hand knowledge filed a whistleblower complaint?

This guy files one. This guy’s represented by Democrats. I want to know if Adam Schiff, the Democrat staffers or any of the Democrats were involved in orchestrating this. This leak and coupe campaign. Did it in Russia, did it with Kavanaugh, it’s the same damn thing.

This is a rogue CIA agent. People might say, but it’s the CIA. Look what they did to the FBI. Look at this guy Brennan, a complete reprobate.

You know, when the CIA overthrew the Iranian government years ago, the liberal Democrats were upset. When they overthrew Allende in Chile, a socialist marxist, the Democrats were upset. When they tried to overthrow Castro, the Democrats were upset…But when they try to overthrow our President, they’re whistleblowers. They’re heroes. They’re courageous. Mr. Schiff, why don’t release 90 days of your phone calls? 90 days of your texts. 90 days of your emails. Cause I know something pal. You’re a leaker. You’re devious. Same with your staff.

Nancy Pelosi went to the microphone, like a dictator, and announced ‘We’re going to begin an official, formal impeachment inquiry…Why would she do that before she got the transcript? Why, because she had this or she knew about it. (Levin holds up the whistleblower’s complaint.) From the little CIA operative.

This document is a thousand times worse than the actual transcript which isn’t even cited in this document (the whistleblower’s complaint).

Now, they’re trying to rewrite this document to try and get it to work with this document (the transcript of the call). The President of the United States phone call has nothing wrong with it. It’s a long conversation. I notice in the media, they’re kind of moving sentences around, trying to attach things. Why don’t you read the whole thing. But you won’t do that. Why? Well I have a question. Why shouldn’t the President of the United States in a conversation with the President of Ukraine say ‘Hey look. Would you take a look at this? We’ve had news reports, books’ about Hunter Biden, Joe Biden obstructing just in the Ukraine, blackmailing the government.’

The President is supposed to sit there and act stupid? No, he says among a thousand other things. You might want to look into this.

‘Wow, that’s an impeachable offense.’

You now have four U.S. senators who did far worse than that. Three of them, Menendez, Leahy, and Durbin who insisted that the Ukrainian government, insisted, investigate our President. You had another one, Murphy, from Connecticut, who insisted that the Ukrainian government not investigate Biden. How come they’re not facing ethics complaints? How come they’re not facing expulsion acts in the United States Senate?

And finally, where the hell are the Republican chairman in the Senate? Why aren’t they issuing subpoenas? Why don’t they pretend they’re Elijah Cummings or Jerry Nadler? Or Schiff for that matter? I know it’s an ugly thought, but issue 100 subpoenas. Go after their bank accounts, go after their friends, go after their relatives. Go after their accountants. Go after their records. And if they don’t go for it, hold em in contempt.

Just Say “No!” to the United Nations

Referring to yet another #ClimateChange statement, William Teach of The Pirate’s Coves wrote:

And they want to take all power away from sovereign nations and place it in the hands of unelected bureaucrats in the U.N.

Since the people to whom Mr Teach referred happen to be those unelected bureaucrats in the UN, of course that’s what they want!

The various Star Trek shows might not be really intense science fiction, but like so many of the images of the future, they have us with a single world government,¹ but such a thing is simply glossed over, as some form of unquestionable good. In reality, a single world government is much more likely to be a despotism of some form.

We can see it already, in the European Union: Americans see the idea as noble and good, but are uneducated concerning the real differences in European people. They have a multitude of languages and, unlike the US, have the various ethnicities geographically restricted; Frenchmen are Frenchmen first, not Europeans first.

Several ethnic groups were forced to live together in the former Yugoslavia, but that nation was held together by Marshall Tito. When he went to his eternal reward, his successors tried to hold together that unnatural polyglot of peoples, and failed; it took only a couple of goons who thought they could take more power by inflaming ethnic differences, and while it cost them in the end, it demonstrated how easily those ethnic tensions could be inflamed. Yugoslavia is now gone, replaced by several ethnically based countries.

Many Scots want to separate from the United Kingdom, the Basques want to separate from Spain, the Chechnyans want independence from Russia, the Kurds want a nation independent from Syria, Iraq and Turkey, the ‘Palestinian’ Arabs want to push the Israelis into the sea, and the list goes on and on. After decades of peaceful coexistence in Czechoslovakia, when the opportunity arose to split into the Czech Republic and Slovakia arose, that’s what happened. Many Francophone Quebecois want to separate from Anglophone Canada, even though our neighbor to the north has both French and English as the official language. In the United Kingdom, Her Majesty’s subjects voted to leave the European Union, in large part due to the heavy-handed EU bureaucracy and rules. The Brits seemed to want to govern themselves, and not be bound by the edicts of Führerin und Reichskanzlerin Angela Merkel. Maybe we ought to consider that people really don’t want ‘diversity,’ don’t want to be ruled by people different from themselves.

Heck, it seems about the only place that wants to stay with its government is that Northern Ireland, dominated by Protestants, want to stay in the United Kingdom rather than be integrated into the Catholic Republic of Ireland.

The United Nations have become over full of themselves, with many seeing themselves as the precursor to a one world government, but the UN is a terrible place from which to begin such an idea. It is wracked by infighting, with alliances between dictators and Islamic states fighting against those nations which have a Western civilization.

And that is the real crux of the matter: the visions of a one world government are the visions of people with a Western civilization frame of mind. The vast majority of Muslims want no such thing, seeing those who are not Muslim as infidels, from whom they must be separated. Much of Africa and Asia have a history of colonialism, of being subject to the mastery of European powers, and have absolutely no desire to have even the slightest semblance of rule by outsiders again.

Western civilization has produced the lands of the greatest freedom and prosperity in the world, lands in which the futuristic dreams of a single world government can be formed, but even there, the views of such are of a government which may have many ethnically and racially ‘diverse’ people in it and running it, but they are all still imbued with a veneer of Western civilization. We would have what were, in effect, everyone, of every race, color and ethnicity, all being westernized white people!

Senator Kamala Harris Emhoff (D-CA) raised the issue of busing in the United States in an attack on former Vice President Joe Biden, for his early opposition to busing, at the time a major issue in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware:

Sixteen years after the U.S. Supreme Court outlawed racial segregation in public schools, an attorney representing black families in Charlotte stood before the court. The landmark Brown v. Board of Education ruling, he argued, had failed to deliver on its promise.

“Black children and parents in Charlotte have struggled since Brown,” said the attorney, Julius Chambers. He urged the high court to embrace a plan to integrate Charlotte schools through a controversial method: busing black children to white schools, and vice versa.

The Supreme Court agreed, unanimously endorsing busing as a legitimate means of unraveling the segregation of children by race. The 1971 decision launched an explosive chapter in American history, touching off a long and polarizing battle that set public opinion against busing for decades, even as the programs succeeded in promoting integration.

Later, evidence would emerge that busing improved outcomes for black students, with no harm to white students. But that evidence came far too late to change public perceptions of a program that was hugely unpopular among whites and left blacks divided.

The vexing issue has reverberated through the Democratic presidential primary since last month’s debates, when Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) criticized former vice president Joe Biden for opposing court-ordered busing in the 1970s. But Harris soon found herself backpedaling when asked whether she would advocate busing today: Last week, she called it a tool to be “considered” but mandated only if local governments are “actively opposing integration.”

That position is not so far from Biden’s, and not a single Democratic candidate is arguing for a return to mandatory busing. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has promised to “execute and enforce desegregation orders” but has not said how. Most candidates have focused on creating incentives for districts and families to create diverse schools on their own.

That segregated schools are an issue in 2019, 65 years after Brown v Board of Education and 48 years after Swann v. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education points out the uncomfortable truth: even though children were educated in (somewhat) racially integrated schools, it has not led to the unspoken but very much hoped for result of integrated living patterns. Even when our schools were integrated, our neighborhoods were not, because white Americans still chose to live in mostly white neighborhoods and black Americans chose to live in mostly black neighborhoods. The government could use the police power of the state to bus children across town to integrate the schools, but it could not require people to buy or rent houses in ‘assigned’ neighborhoods. Black people in the United States did not become what the social engineers of the 1960s and 1970s had hoped, simply darker-skinned white people.

This, in the United States, a nation uniquely ‘diverse,’ in that our ethnic groups are scattered throughout the population, rather than in traditionally ethnic regions: we still have a population which is ‘diverse’ overall but still mostly segregated at the neighborhood level:

Even as the United States becomes increasingly diverse, neighborhood segregation patterns persist in large urban areas, including in the Washington metro region, according to five-year trend data from the Census Bureau.

Segregation has remained most entrenched between black and white residents, while segregation between whites and Hispanics and whites and Asians is more fluid, according to an analysis of the bureau’s latest American Community Survey data.

Some of the starkest black-white urban divide can be seen in Midwestern and Northeastern cities with long-concentrated and slow-growing black populations, including Buffalo, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Milwaukee, New York and St. Louis, said William Frey, a senior demographer at the Brookings Institution, who analyzed the data.²

Integration in our public schools began in the 1960s — 1964 the school I attended — and 1970s, which means that the children in such schools are now at or nearing retirement; almost every homebuyer today grew up with racial integration in the schools, yet racial segregation still exists, due to the personal choices of American homebuyers and renters. If Americans, lacking the ethnic separation into different countries that exists across so much of the rest of the world, and lacking most of the history of real strife between national groups, are not integrated, is it reasonable to think that the people of other nations would accept classical liberal notions of integration?

The notion that we could have a single, worldwide government is a dream of some Westerners, but, at least for the foreseeable future, it is a ridiculous pipe dream.  The United Nations’ bureaucrats want to keep pushing for more and more authority into that slowly dilapidating building in Turtle Bay, but that needs to be firmly resisted.  There may, may! be a few useful functions of the United Nations, but we need to firmly reject anything which subjects the United States to the UN’s will.

² – Interestingly enough, the article also notes that segregation levels have mostly declined in the South: “Atlanta, Houston, Louisville, Memphis, Miami, New Orleans, Orlando and Tampa.” That kind of refutes the notions of liberals that racism is a mostly southern problem.

Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Losing: Beto Tells Pro-2A Advocates it’s ‘Wrong’ to be Carrying Their Weapons

Are ya ready for some goofiness?

I gotcha covered.

On Wednesday at a Kent State University campaign rally, single-digit would-be hunting rifle thief Beto O’Rourke let people know it’s wrong to carry guns. At least, to any of his events, I guess.

The guy’s goin’ out with a blaze of glory — I’ll give him that.

It’s also, however, a blaze of ignorance, as he’s continued to speak about guns while making clear he’s never, at any point, said to himself, “Hey, what are guns? Maybe I should take just an hour or two to find out some information, any information. And then talk.”

Beto’s previously said he’ll be stealing your AR-15, but you can keep your hunting rifle.

Meanwhile, the AR-15 is America’s best-selling hunting rifle.

The other day, while eating a gigantic cheeseburger followed by a huge chocolate peanut butter malt, I was speaking to a friend who’s a handgun owner. I mentioned Beto’s vow to confiscate AR-15’s.

My friend:

“Well, those are like machine guns.”

That’s what she thought, from what she’d heard on the news.

We’ve got a problem here.

And O’Rourke ain’t helpin’.

Here’s what he had to say:

“It is not enough to stop selling AR-15s and AK-47s when there are more than 10 million of those potential instruments of terror.”

All guns are potential instruments of terror. AR-15’s just look spooky.

“We must mandate that every single one of them be bought back — back home, off the streets, out of our lives. No longer a threat to every to every single one of us.”

That won’t make any great difference, given that the vast majority gun deaths are due to handgun use. And AR-15’s are not the only rifles, goob. You don’t think a murderer’ll just grab the other rifle or pistol on the shelf?

Nevertheless, to Beto, so long as there exists a long gun with a scary shape, everyone’s walking around with a bullseye on ’em. But it sounds as if, if voters choose for him to steal those things from their homes, magically, the bullseyes’ll all just disappear, Jack!

“None of us should face this terror. No one in El Paso, Texas should have to tell me, as they do all the time, that they’re walking around with a target on their back.”

I have a suggestion: How about talk about things that will actually do something, rather than goofiness that makes no sense and no large difference?

Some folks came to the Beto bash in protest — and they brought their firearms:

Beto told ’em it’s wrong:

“And nobody should show up with one of these weapons that seek to intimidate us in our own democracy. That’s wrong. That’s wrong.”

What if it was a shotgun? Would that be better? A .30-06 bolt-action rifle? Preferable? No longer wrong?

The problem with politics, it seems to me, is that the majority of the CO2 appears to be comprised of absolutely meaningless words. It’s posturing, grandstanding, fluff, and — if given the benefit of the doubt — ignorance.

But so long as Beto sticks to his…guns…and continues to hammer one single kind of firearm which doesn’t make a dent in the larger scope of violent crime in America, he’ll cement himself as one more electoral fart in the wind. How about the Green New Deal fix that?

“Yesterday, people brought assault weapons to our rally at Kent State—where 4 students were shot dead in 1970.”

No, they didn’t. As for the AR-15, they brought hunting rifles.

And your rhetoric stinks.

Open letter to the American voter

Westlake Legal Group Vote-or-Die Open letter to the American voter Uncategorized Front Page Stories

I am not going to request every living human being to just vote Republican, but I am asking every American voter to consider a few things before making his or her decision on who they vote.

What is a Congress elected to do, each time they convene? Is it to make appropriate legislation to further the ability of the American experiment, or is it to play tiddly-winks with our current president because a political party only wishes to overturn the results of a legitimate and official election? Is it a correct course of action for the media to say things that are factually inaccurate about their political opposites? People may have differing opinions about who is right, or who is wrong, concerning the media, but that institution has taken sides, throughout our country’s existence, and it is wrong to allow it to continue. We either make our decisions based on truth, facts and how the country is performing, or we make those decisions, based on pure political idolatry. Which would you prefer? I sincerely hope everyone would base their decision on a provable commodity, rather than what some political pundit, on any channel you watch, says, because you can listen for only a couple seconds to any commentator and see exactly who they are siding with. it does nothing productive to tell someone to stop listening to a particular channel or commentator, but one thing is highly recommended, and I wish more people would default back to it: look at the world, yourself. See what is happening around your part of the world. See what a politician says, and does, and if he or she demonstrates by his or her actions that he or she is compatible with your view on how society is to be.

Leave the entire media as a grain of salt. It would be asking too much of anyone to just throw everything out, but when you apply a little common sense, see what shapes the world around you, you can then make a more reasonable decision on who you vote for. Republican, Democrat, communist, capitalist, however you see what is progressing around you is going to make your decision for you, but never forget all the things that made our country great, and those things that failed us in the past. And, for God’s sake, look at all the suffering people have had to experience through tyrannical regimes, like Venezuela, before you go and misunderstand another example that may have been caused by some academician who has a distorted view of political structures that had nothing to do with his or her success in academia. Some people do have agendas, and many of them are not in your best interest.

Please start using your own brain and free yourself of all the political dogma. It’s really easy, and if you do decide on your own, no one will have to beg for your vote, nor have to lie to get it, because the process makes the outcome be very clear. You either wish freedom over security, which means you are capable of taking care of yourself, or you aren’t. I choose freedom, any day, over tyranny. You might disagree.

What did the Founders give us? Was it a pact to squander, or was it a way to release the chains and allow the individual, which happens to be the ultimate minority on the planet, a way to achieve individual success? Just that one question should answer a lot of the other questions that come into view. Considering self interest, first, should always be your first priority, because you can’t help anyone else until “You” prosper. You would be wise to consider your own self interest before you place blind faith in a politician. What does he or she have to offer you? What do they represent? Those are serious questions, and require serious thought.

How about doing your own homework, and leave the TV turned off. Look at the world, around you, and start having a fresh look at how you are a part of it. Then, and only then, can you make the right decision about the people who represent you. We just don’t need a perpetual impeachment hearing. We do need representatives who do their jobs, and I will never be convinced that an entire political party was sent to Congress for a perpetual impeachment hearing. That is a job covered by the Constitution, only to be used in the most dire emergencies, and, in my world, things are looking pretty good, when I see blacks, whites, hispanics and everyone else, having more jobs, making a living so they can support their families, live their lives and contributing to the experiment, known as the United States of America.

We don’t need to be kept in a perpetual state of discontent over who thinks an election was right or wrong. That job was performed, last time, by the electorate. Every four years you have the right, but you also have a duty to accept the results of your fellow voter, so make your choice wisely.

I can live with a loyal opposition, can you? I find myself on the other side of that fence, often. Nothing wrong with that.
