New ‘She Built NYC’ Monument Honors Seven Women, Including Two Men. Curiously Missing: the Christian Woman Voters Selected

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s wife is spearheading a “She Built NYC” memorial featuring statues of women who made the city what it is today.

The project — which was initially intended to involve only a single sculpture — was announced in June of last year, and the public was asked to vote on which woman would be immortalized.

A committee ended up expanding the vision and picking seven.

The transgender world is also being represented, as among the chosen are two men.

The ladies are as follows, courtesy of Women.NYC:

Shirley Chisholm (1924-2005) — The first African-American woman elected to Congress, she represented New York’s 12th Congressional District for seven terms from 1969-1983.

Billie Holliday (1915-1959) — One of the most famous jazz vocalists of all time, Holliday was discovered at the age of 18 in a Harlem jazz club. She passed away in 1959 after a long battle with substance abuse.

Helen Rodriguez-Trias (1929-2001) — Dr. Rodriguez-Trias was a pediatrician and abortion-rights activist. She was also the first Latina woman to be elected president of the American Public Health Association.

Katherine Walker (1838-1941) — A diminutive German immigrant who stood just four feet and ten inches, barely tipping the scales at 100 pounds, took over running the Robbins Reef lighthouse when her second husband passed away. She continued his duties for nearly three decades, sometimes rowing out into rough water to pull shipwrecked sailors from the waves.

Elizabeth Jennings Graham (1827-1901) — Known to some as NYC’s Rosa Parks, Graham famously refused to get off a “whites only” streetcar in 1854. She was removed by police, but later won a lawsuit against the company along with $255 in damages. She also founded and ran the first kindergarten for black children out of her own home until she passed away in 1901.

One male recipient of the city’s veneration is Marsha P. Johnson ((1945-1992):

Marsha P. Johnson was an activist whose involvement in the 1969 Stonewall Riots helped pave the way toward trans acceptance. Born in Elizabeth, NJ, Johnson moved to New York City after high school with just $15 and a bag of clothes. Though she struggled with homelessness, Johnson devoted her life to advocating for gay and transgender street youth, sex workers and people with HIV/AIDS, co-founding STAR (Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries) with her good friend Sylvia Rivera. Towering in red plastic heels and floral wigs, Johnson was a captivating figure who caught the attention of Andy Warhol, who photographed her. She will share a monument in Greenwich Village with Sylvia Rivera.

Here’s more about Marsha, from CNN:

Johnson was a drag performer and a sex worker; she was often homeless and lived with mental illness. Her body was found in the Hudson River in 1992, and the circumstances of her death remain unclear. New York police ruled the death a suicide and didn’t investigate.
She is remembered as one of the most significant activists for transgender rights, although the term “transgender” wasn’t commonly used during her lifetime. Johnson identified as a “transvestite,” gay and a drag queen, and used she/her pronouns.

“She was the ultimate survivor,” said Elle Hearns, a human rights activist who created an institute bearing Johnson’s name.

“I don’t think Marsha has left anything behind besides the permission for us all to be free.”

Lastly, Sylvia Rivera (1951-2002) will be honored:

Sylvia Rivera was a pioneering transgender advocate whose radical activism was inspired by her own life. Abandoned by her father at birth and orphaned at age 3 when her mother committed suicide, Rivera was raised in NYC by her Venezuelan grandmother. She left home at age 11 to escape criticism of her gender-defying ways and lived on the streets, surviving as a sex worker. Following her involvement in the 1969 Stonewall riots, she and her longtime friend Marsha P. Johnson cofounded STAR (Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries) to help homeless youth. Rivera also fought for transgender legal protections in New York City and Albany. She will share a monument in Greenwich Village with Marsha P. Johnson.

Biography.com offers this about Sylvia:

Defiant of labels, Rivera confounded many in the mainstream gay liberation movement because of her own diverse and complex background: She was poor, trans, a drag queen, a person of color, a former sex worker, and someone who also experienced drug addiction, incarceration and homelessness. For all of these reasons, Rivera fought for not only gay and trans rights but also racial, economic and criminal justice issues.

Initially in public support of the Gay Rights Bill, Rivera felt betrayed when the bill — which took 17 years to become New York law in 1986 — ultimately excluded the rights of the transgender community.

“They have a little backroom deal without inviting Miss Sylvia and some of the other trans activists to this backroom deal with these politicians. The deal was, ‘You take them out, we’ll pass the bill,’” Rivera explained at an LGBT talk in 2001.

Together, Marsha and Sylvia co-founded STAR, the Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries, which provided housing to homeless transvestite youth.

According to then-Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen, who announced the “She Built NYC” project last year along with First Lady Chirlaine McCray, previously there were 22 monuments to men in Central Park yet only one to a woman — Alice in Wonderland.

“Not even a real woman, you know?” she marveled. “Give me a break! Enough is enough!”

When New Yorkers voted on the one woman to honor, the overwhelming winner was Catholic Saint Frances Cabrini.

From Time:

On March 31, 1889, Mother Frances Xavier Cabrini, a tiny, frail nun, daughter of a Lombard farmer, arrived in New York with six’ members of the order she had formed, the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Pope Leo XIII had sent her to work among the Italian immigrants who were finding neither a welcome nor prosperity in the New World, and worse, in the eyes of the Church, were losing their faith and piety.

Mother Cabrini and her six set to work in the New York slums. To support their first orphanage they begged their way through the squalor of Little Italy, later managed to set up a tiny, ill-equipped hospital for the Italian poor. Though funds came mostly in small change, Mother Cabrini‘s masterful will again & again overcame obstacles that seemed insuperable. For the next 28 years she traveled indefatigably, setting up schools, hospitals, orphanages and novitiates in Chicago, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Seattle, Denver and other U.S. cities. … She was an American after America’s heart, and in 1909, in her 59th year, she became a U.S. citizen.

Those in charge declined to include her.

Frances is the patron saint of immigrants.

Trump Jr. Fiercely Rips the Media Over Its Double-Standard Treatment of the Bidens vs. the Trumps

In this April 17, 2017 file photo, Donald Trump Jr., the son of President Donald Trump, speaks to media on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington. Donald Trump Jr.’s scheduled visit to Capitol Hill on Thursday marks a new phase in the Senate investigation of Moscow’s meddling in the 2016 election and a meeting that the president’s eldest son had with Russians during the campaign. Staff from the Senate Judiciary Committee _ one of three congressional committees conducting investigations _ plan to privately interview the younger Trump. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)

 

 

Don Jr. was on fire Friday, speaking to Brian Kilmeade on his eponymous Fox program.

Jr. was especially inflamed over what he considers a gargantuan media double standard between the Trump family and the Bidens.

He wanted to address what some have asserted: that Joe’s family — in particular, Hunter Biden — is off-limits.

Here’s what DTJ had to say, with a reference to calls from blocked numbers before and after the Trump Tower meeting of 2016 between Russians and Trump campaign reps.

“Look at what they tried to do to me for three years. I mean, these clowns tried to put me in jail for three years because I took an unsolicited phone call.”

The vice president of the Trump Organization labeled the difference sickening:

“You know, the double standard is pretty sick, Brian. I’ve talked about it for a long time. We can play one way, or we can play another way, but we’ve got to be playing the same game.”

Watch the latest video at foxnews.com
Don put himself in a semi-Bidenish position:

“The reality is this: If Donald Trump Jr. flew on Air Force One with my father, the president, to China and came back with $1.5 dollars — not $1.5 billion, just $1.5 dollars — we’d solve the fake news media problem because their heads would explode.”

He’s certainly been scathed by the press a time or two. And he knows a bit about peeps going family-deep in a political attack.

As I covered in May, as part of the collusion clamor, Jr. said Dems sought to subpoena the tax records of his 4-year-old daughter, Chloe (here).

Actually, given the recent rise of children being utilized for political means (here, here, and here), that might not be a half-bad idea.

But Don ain’t into it:

“If Donald Trump Jr. had a no-show gig on a corrupt Ukrainian oil company while my father was in charge of the issues over there… minor details. I’ve never been in energy or oil. Minor details. I don’t speak Ukrainian. You think the press would have a problem with that, Brian?”

Hunter was, of course, on the board of Burisma Holdings while dad Joe was VP.

But Hunter probably won’t have to deal with cousin Eddie in the RV.

Don did:

“I had the media camped out in front of my apartment for two years. They don’t even try to find this guy to even get a comment.”

“It’s not fair. It’s not a level playing field,” he insisted. “And, so we have to fight back accordingly.”

Some critics of the news media would likely easily believe they were holed up like Eddie…and “full”:

In Order to Ensure ‘the Safety of Everyone,’ a 12-Year-Old is Arrested and Charged with a Felony. The Reason is Incredible

Westlake Legal Group wolf-in-sheeps-clothing-2577813_1280-620x383 In Order to Ensure ‘the Safety of Everyone,’ a 12-Year-Old is Arrested and Charged with a Felony. The Reason is Incredible Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

Not so long ago in public schools, you could get in huge trouble for giving someone the finger.

Now, I think you can say the actual words. To the teacher.

They have to affirm your feelings and respect your “dignity.”

But the finger can still get you in hot water, just as it did a 12-year-old girl in Kansas.

She delivered the digit to some dudes and dudettes, and the police took her away in cuffs.

I’ll say that again: She gave someone the finger, and the police came to the school. And arrested her. And hauled her off in shackles.

Oh — she didn’t used the middle finger; it was the other one that did her in. The one next to her thumb.

As reported by The Kansas City Star, the youngster at Westridge Middle School was asked by a peer during a class discussion which classmate she’d kill if she could pick five.

Not a very nice question.

The chick shaped her fingers like a gun and pointed at four kids before pointing to herself.

Along with other classmates, she was sent to the principal’s office, where a school resource officer recommended calling the popo over her illegal possession of a firearm — I mean, firehand.

Cops cuffed her, put her in the car, and raced her off to the Joint for processing.

She was charged with a felony for making a threat. Or, as court records put it, “unlawfully and feloniously [communicating] a threat to commit violence, with the intent to place another, in fear, or with the intent to cause the evacuation, lock down or disruption in regular, ongoing activities.”

She was released to her mom.

The mother/daughter pair will have their day in court Tuesday.

Shawnee Mission School District spokesman Dave Smith told KSHB the school had nothing to do with it:

“I want to be very clear: The arrest of this student was wholly unrelated to any district policy,” Shawnee Mission School District spokesman Dave Smith told KSHB. “It was a municipal police department decision, and our policies don’t impact police department decisions.”

The incident occurred on September 18th, and the girl’s now living in California.

Guess her parents wanted to put her somewhere less left-wing.

Jon Cavanaugh, the miniature criminal’s granddad, said the whole thing stinks:

“I think that this is something that probably could have been handled in the principal’s office and got completely out of hand,” he told the Star. “I’m really worried about my granddaughter’s future.”

The Overland Park Police assured the public:

“Ensuring the safety of everyone in a school, or community, is a top priority and requires constant vigilance.”

Right.

No word on whether she had a license for that finger, but if she’s got a spooky-looking knuckle,  I believe that constitutes a “weapon of war.”

You’re Not Being Paranoid; The Trans Lobby Is Targeting Children

=========
=========
Promoted from the diaries by streiff. Promotion does not imply endorsement.
=========
=========

I honestly don’t care if a fully grown man or woman decides he or she is a member of the opposite sex and proceeds to augment and mutilate himself or herself with injections and surgery.

My problem with this is the deliberate targeting of vulnerable children by the LGBT lobby.

In the UK, we’re talking about children as young as 3 years old being diagnosed by supposedly sane experts as being “transgender.” Numerous school districts across the United States in thrall to the LGBT lobby have classes in which activists instruct little boys and girls to cross-dress and “reconsider” their gender – all without parental knowledge or consent. In Illinois, Democrat Governor Pritzker has made such instruction mandatory with no option for parents to opt their children out.

The campaign against “conversion therapy” for gays has transferred itself to also prohibiting any therapy to assist children to come to terms with and accept their biological sex. Which is actually the healthiest outcome by any measure, as opposed to condemning a child to a lifetime of therapy, sterility, hormone shots and continuous surgery. And that’s not to mention the high likelihood of cardiac, skeletal and circulatory issues.

In every other case of body dysmorphia – from anorexia to a girl just wanting bigger breasts – therapists are supposed to discourage healthy patients from going under the knife and encourage them to accept their bodies as they are. It’s only transgenderism that encourages surgery and hormone injections that do horrific amounts of damage to the body as a matter of course as essentially the first, and often, only, option.

It’s gotten to the point that not only are therapists supposed to immediately refer a child for “gender affirmation” for something as innocuous as a four year old boy playfully clip-clopping around in his mother’s shoes, or a little girl playing with a truck, there are grounds for suspicion that a number actually coach children to threaten their parents with suicide and even to fake suicide attempts if they voice any doubts that this is the only option.

As it is, today, if a little girl is seen in a tube top and mini skirt and made up like a streetwalker, there’s no one who would object to Child Services taking the child away from her parents. But just take a look at the hagiographical articles being written about “drag kids”, i.e. little boys being dressed like female prostitutes and strippers, and the praise being showered on their parents – up to and including parents who take their boys to pole dance for leering men in adult clubs and model “clothes” for BDSM magazines and catalogues.

Which brings us all to the point of this all – why are trans activists insisting on children being subjected to these life altering medically dangerous treatments at ever younger ages, to the point that they’re recommending that very young children be allowed to have these treatments over parental objections?

Because kids with gender confusion tend to resolve into being comfortable with their biological sex 95% – 98% of the time by puberty’s end. This is considered a “problem” by LGBT activists. And the solution to this problem is to prevent this resolution by targeting children while they’re still prepubescents.

The reason why gangs demand that new members get tattoos and “prove” themselves by committing some crime as part of their initiation ritual is to make the new entrant feel there is no going back.

Once a child knows he/she has been injected with something to make him/her the opposite sex – with adults he/she trusts acting so proud and approving – that same feeling of “no going back” is introduced into the equation. Especially when he can see his/her peers are virilizing/feminizing as puberty kicks in and hormone blockers have halted his/her own development. From there being a 95% – 98% chance he/she would eventually become comfortable as his/her birth sex, it crashes to near zero.

So here we are. Being unaware of your fourteen year old son getting a two inch tattoo on his bicep is very likely going to lose you custody of your child. But deliberately having your son injected with chemicals that would not only sterilize him but also weaken his bones, damage his heart and blood flow, and then take him to a doctor to create superfluous infection prone orifices on his body would have you celebrated on the pages of the New York Times. In fact, you’re now likely lose custody of your child for failing to do so.

Again, I repeat; the Trump Administration announcing an immediate ban, however it works, on persons under the age of 18 being provided with gender transitioning treatments, along with a strong campaign highlighting the dangers of such treatments over and above the heads of the media is an electoral winner with every demographic outside of journalists, Far Left college students and professors and Hollywood.

It’s the ultimate wedge issue – not just good politics but good policy.

Angry White Female Town Board Member Lashes Out at Colleagues; ‘You are a white male! You have been white from birth!’

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-11-at-2.06.10-PM-620x300 Angry White Female Town Board Member Lashes Out at Colleagues; ‘You are a white male! You have been white from birth!’ Uncategorized Susan Buchanan Social Justice Oak Park IL Trustees Front Page Stories Featured Story Allow Media Exception

Screen shot: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1182261865658949633

 

The town of Oak Park, IL is a suburb of Chicago. Although only 68% of its residents are white, the town’s Board of Trustees consists of only white members.

At a recent meeting, the members were discussing the possibility of rewriting the town’s diversity statement. One of the trustees, Susan Buchanan, introduced new language for their statement, specifically “We work to break down systems of oppression.”

In the long version of the meeting video (at the bottom of the page), two of the trustees, both white males, are heard calmly discussing the new language.

“I hesitate to send the message to our police department that they are a system of oppression,” said fellow trustee Dan Maroney.

This remark clearly upset Buchanan and she erupted.

Buchanan interrupts their conversation. “I am so tired of hearing two white men tell us what systems of oppression are. For Christ’s sake, no! You don’t know what systems of oppression are; you haven’t been oppressed. This is like if you guys wanted to tell us what it’s like to have a menstrual cycle. You don’t know what you’re talking about.”

Her voice became louder as she spoke. It was punctuated by the pounding of her fist on the table. At times, she received applause. She refused to allow the men to speak and kept repeating variations of the following.

You have been white from birth! Why are you arguing what is a system of oppression? You’ve never experienced one, so shut up! I don’t want to hear from you!

You have not spent a day with dark brown skin and tried to walk through this society!

When the town’s mayor, Anan Abu-Taleba who is a native of Palestine, tried to speak, Buchanan pointed her finger at him and shouted, “You stop it, you are a white male! You stop it! You are a white male! Your skin is light enough!”

One of the men present quietly says, “I think if we reduce these conversations to ‘nobody cares what you have to say because you are a white male,’ I don’t think we’re doing this right.”

Here is the short version of Buchanan’s meltdown.

The local CBS 2 network heard about the meeting and contacted several of the trustees for comment.

“I probably showed more emotion than I should have,” Buchanan told CBS, but “I strongly believe that there is a time when white people, including myself, should stand back.”

Maroney spoke to CBS as well. He said, “People of goodwill can have differences of opinion. I don’t think it’s OK to silence voices when at the heart, there is tremendous agreement.”

And they report that the diversity statement still includes the phrase “systems of oppression, but goes on to define them as including biases such as racism, sexism, and homophobia.

The American Conservative’s Rod Dreher responded to the story. He pointed out, “Oak Park is 68 percent white, and has no minority people on its board of trustees. But it’s got a diversity statement! A super-woke one!”

CNN’s Town Hall Learns It’s ‘Violence’ to Alter the Name of a Trans Person, and We’ve Got a New National Emergency

In the 1940’s, Americans volunteered to go overseas and have people shoot at their heads in order to defend the nation.

They faced real violence in a real war where real life hung in the balance.

Today, we’ve really lost a sense of the high stakes.

What’s important? Life. Family. Faith. Purpose.

Our society, it seems to me, is crumbling from a loss of the biggies. And it’s accompanied by an attempt to make the infinitesimal huge.

Children were once taught “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me.” They were made to be resilient because their self worth didn’t depend upon the opinions of others.

These days, names are putting sticks and stones to shame.

People are insisting their feelings be affirmed, because they’re owed it. Otherwise, they’re enduring paralyzing adversity.

Another wonder: The fact that they’re called “micro” aggressions, it seems to me, should be an indication that they’re…ya know…micro.

But it ain’t.

Appropos, during CNN’s Equality Town Hall Thursday night, Julián Castro got a lesson in physical force.


Singer Shea Diamond took to the mic for a question, and his name was mispronounced by the network’s Nia-Malika Henderson as “Shay”:

“I want to bring in [“Shay”] Diamond, a singer/songwriter from L.A. She currently supports Mayor Pete Buttigieg. What’s your question?”

Shea replied:

“Uh, it’s ‘Shia’ Diamond. Put that on the record. Yes, honey. It’s violence to misgender or to alter a name of a trans person, so let’s always get that right first.”

It’s violence to mispronounce someone’s name.

Watch the video above.

Fortunately for Shea, Cory Booker was there for support: The macho, physical-assault-aspiring 2020 hopeful asserted the country’s facing a “national emergency” in the area of violence against the LGBT community, and that it may in fact require a federal Office on Hate Crimes and White Supremacy.

Back to Shea, to be clear, I’m not suggesting a man identifying as a woman is the ultimate manifestation of our national weakness. It could’ve just as easily been a straight white millennial, and it has been. And it will be again.

We’re becoming crippled by the trivial.

And that is a national emergency.

Lord help us if the Japanese attack again.

Elizabeth Warren Enlists a Transgender 9-Year-Old to Choose the Education Secretary as the Political Landscape Radically Transforms

Westlake Legal Group elizabeth-warren-jacob-lemay-SCREENSHOT-620x350 Elizabeth Warren Enlists a Transgender 9-Year-Old to Choose the Education Secretary as the Political Landscape Radically Transforms Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

[Screenshot from Tom Elliott via Twitter, https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1182465900190011397?]

 

In case you missed CNN’s Equality Town Hall last night, Elizabeth Warren took a question from a 9-year-old:

“My name is Jacob, and I am a nine-year-old transgender American.”

The audience went nuts.

“What will you do in your first week as president to make sure kids like me feel safer in schools, and what do you think schools need to do better to make sure that I don’t have to worry about anything but my homework?”

Elizabeth used the opportunity to slam Betsy DeVos:

“Let me start by saying I want to have a secretary of education who both believes in public education and believes in the value of every one of our kids and is willing to enforce our civil rights laws. We’ve had some secretaries of education who’ve been better, and we’ve had one that’s been a whole lot worse. Her name is Betsy DeVos. So, when I’m president, she’ll be gone.”

Poor Betsy can’t seem to catch a break — in December, actress-turned-activist Alyssa Milano, in partnership with Cosmopolitan magazine — provided a novel take on ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas:

“Late one evening at the Department of Ed, thoughts were bouncing around Betsy DeVos’s head. She needed a gift, she started to think. A gift for the people that would really stink.

“All night she stayed up, her mind ablaze; the sh*tty ideas pouring onto the page: No more investigations for off-campus rape; bars and house parties would totally be safe. The meaning of harassment she would remove; squeeze and twist until it was hard to prove. Live hearings where attackers defend their own violence sounded like a good way to keep victims silent.”

Alyssa appeared to have forgotten that law enforcement exists. To her, it’s the Department of Education that’s supposed to investigate crimes.

Elizabeth wants Jacob to help pick the next J. Edgar:

“I want to make sure that the person I think is the right secretary of education meets you and hears your story, and then I want you to tell me if you think that’s the right person and then we’ll make the deal.”

Thumbs up from the kid.

Jacob’s no stranger to the spotlight. Last October, Good Morning America spotlighted her:

When the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) came out with its first policy statement on the treatment of transgender and gender-diverse youth, Mimi Lemay felt validated.

Her son Jacob, 8, transitioned when he was 4 years old with the support of Lemay and her husband, despite the child’s doctor and therapist urging a “watchful waiting” approach at the time.

“We were trying to hold him back,” said Lemay, who chronicled her early struggles with Jacob in an open letter on Boston.com that went viral. “Finally, my husband and I came to the conclusion that the longer we kept him in limbo — one name at home and one at school — the more he would accrue harm. That was evident to us and we made the decision to transition.”

Now that previously-outdated doctor’s on board.

“This (the AAP’s policy statement) will go a long way in fixing that,” Lemay said. “And I hope that it’s widely followed. I would like to see the AAP and medical schools get together and make this mandatory.”

The academy found that most mental health problems in gender-diverse children arise from “stigma and negative experiences,” and can be prevented by a supportive family and environment, which includes health care.

The guidelines specifically disavow the “watchful waiting” approach, calling it outdated and based on flawed science.

“More robust and current research suggests that, rather than focusing on who a child will become, valuing them for who they are, even at a young age, fosters secure attachment and resilience, not only for the child but also for the whole family,” the report said.

NBC did a piece on Jacob in April of 2015:

Jacob is a happy, healthy, well-adjusted pre-schooler. He has two sisters — one older and one younger.

When Jacob was born, his name was Mia. But by the time he was two, he was telling his parents, “I’m a boy.”

So Jacob’s been, in effect, a transgender activist for quite a while.

Kids seem to be taking over politics as of late, and the transgender thing’s all the rage.

In case you missed it, there was also this:

Whistle-blowing is all the rage these days; just ask your average Democrat, including those who infest the legacy media. This latest Ukraine gambit, they say, is “sure” to get “Orange Man Bad” once and for all. I don’t think so, as the story continues to evince red flags nearly every day. Here are a few tidbits – some well-known, some more obscure. How were the seeds of this Ukraine complainant sowed? Daniel Greenfield exposes the root cause as – no surprise! – an Obama-era policy change. It was aimed at Romney but snared President Trump:

Obama’s Presidential Policy Directive 19 opened the door by expanding whistleblowing protection to members of the “intelligence community” and other personnel handling classified information. But PPD19 was never really meant to help the likes of Manning and Snowden. Instead it was part of a larger pattern of politicizing national security organizations that led directly to the current crisis.

Both the Russians and the Democrats understood that whistleblowers were a strategic vulnerability. Whistleblowers were seen as sympathetic underdogs who were trying to do the right thing. That was the perfect camouflage for an enemy agent or the agent of a police state. Astroturfing, the practice of manufacturing grass roots efforts and building causes around individual protesters, like Greta Thunberg or David Hogg, had moved into the national security infrastructure before going off like a bomb. The real purpose of PPD19 was to aid Obama loyalists is undermining a Romney administration.

[Whistleblower protections] are not meant to allow an anonymous government employee to assist in a partisan campaign to remove the President of the United States as part of a ploy orchestrated by the opposition party. That is a breathtaking abuse that will damage whistleblower protections indefinitely. The Obama administration and its allies have tried to turn government agencies into bear traps, seeking to retain control of policymaking through a network of lefty loyalists in agencies and activist judges in the courts, and, beyond that, to force out Trump appointees and to even force out President Trump.

Read the rest here.

But PPD19 apparently wasn’t good enough for the Deep State, particularly after President Trump beat Shrillary, and the “resistance” was off to the races looking for ways to impeach him. They resorted to other measures, including changing the whistleblower disclosure form. As many have previously reported, the disclosure form was modified to permit use of second-hand information such that any allegation deemed “credible” could be used to target someone for policy differences or even personal reasons. That form was approved by the current IC IG, and we have subsequently learned that the new form was backdated to enable the Ukraine complaint and that the IC IG refused to explain why in testimony before the House Intel Committee last week:

In tense testimony before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) on Friday, the inspector general for federal spy agencies refused to disclose why his office backdated secret changes to key whistleblower forms and rules in the wake of an anti-Trump whistleblower complaint filed in August, sources told The Federalist. As … the Intelligence Community Inspector General confirmed, the spy watchdog secretly changed its whistleblower forms and internal rules in September to eliminate a requirement that whistleblowers provide first-hand evidence to support any allegations of wrongdoing. In a press release last week, the ICIG confessed that it changed its rules in response to an anti-Trump complaint filed on August 12.

Read the rest here.

You think that the Ukraine hit-job was a one-off and don’t think the Democrats have weaponized whistleblowers across the federal government? Check out this Mark Zaid tweet from June 2018, as they are no longer hiding their actions. Whistleblowers are just the latest extension of the Democrats’ lawfare practices!

https://mobile.twitter.com/MarkSZaidEsq/status/1009900750116442112

Returning to Ukraine, any reasonable person might suspect that the complaint was a set-up from the beginning but, of course, there are more red flags:

  • There was no firsthand evidence used at all in the complaint.
  • The complainant was found to have a “professional association” with a 2020 Democrat candidate.
  • The declassified and released phone transcript summary between Presidents Trump and Zelenskiiy thoroughly debunked the complaint.
  • President Zelenskiiy and several US diplomats (including Kurt Volker, the recently-resigned US envoy to Ukraine in testimony in closed-door hearings) confirmed that there was no US pressure applied on Ukraine for anything.
  • Shifty received the complaint weeks before it was formally lodged and then lied about those contacts, and either he, his staff, or outside counsel appeared to have coordinated with and provided advice to the complainant. Many have remarked that the complaint itself was more of a legal brief than something a normal whistleblower would have submitted.
  • Contrary to established House rules, the Democrats did not share the complaint information with the Republicans on the House Intel committee when it was received.
  • We just learned, as reported by RedState’s own Elizabeth Vaughn, that the Ukrainians had reinitiated an investigation into Burisma Holdings months before that presidential phone call, thus pulling the rug out from under another Democrat talking point that @POTUS strong-armed Zelenskiiy to “investigate the Bidens.”
  • The Democrats are running their impeachment “inquiry,” which heavily features abuse of power allegations stemming from the false Ukraine complaint, on an exclusively partisan basis without any Republican involvement.
  • The “whistleblower” apparently wrote a memo that contradicted his later complaint and was inconsistent with the contents of the actual presidential phone call. Refer to Nick Arama’s piece here.
  • The “whistleblower’s” attorney, Charles McCullough (the former Obama-appointed IC IG!!), worked directly for James Clapper. “Partisan witch hunt coordination we much” (a play on Al Sharpton’s ridiculous “Resist we much” statement). McCullough is the likely author of the complaint itself!
  • The Democrats selectively leaked parts of former Ambassador Kurt Volker’s testimony to the HPSCI but refused to make the entire testimony public.
  • I like the 11 facts presented by John Nolte that early on undermined the Ukraine complaint.

As if those weren’t enough reasons to question the veracity of the complaint, a left-wing journalist who is no friend of POTUS weighs in with his own skepticism and some points from out in left field:

  • The unnamed person at the center of this story sure didn’t sound like a whistleblower. Our intelligence community wouldn’t wipe its ass with a real whistleblower. Americans who’ve blown the whistle over serious offenses by the federal government either spend the rest of their lives overseas, like Edward Snowden, end up in jail, like Chelsea Manning, get arrested and ruined financially, like former NSA official Thomas Drake, have their homes raided by FBI like disabled NSA vet William Binney, or get charged with espionage like ex-CIA exposer-of-torture John Kiriakou. It’s an insult to all of these people, and the suffering they’ve weathered, to frame the ballcarrier in the Beltway’s latest partisan power contest as a whistleblower.
  • The common thread in whistleblower stories is loneliness. Typically, the employer has direct control over their ability to pursue another job in their profession. Many end up reviled as traitors, thieves, and liars. Actual whistleblowers are alone. The Ukraine complaint seems to be the work of a group of people, supported by significant institutional power, not only in the intel community, but in the Democrat Party and the commercial press.

Read the rest here. [Note: While Taibbi implies they are “heroes,” Snowden and Manning should have been hung for what they disclosed.]

To briefly summarize before proceeding further:

  • The Obama regime laid the groundwork for enabling the Ukraine complaint with PPD19.
  • The whistleblower disclosure form was changed specifically to permit a deluge of “whistleblowers” against Trump.
  • Real WBs were required to submit their complaints previously via internal processes within their own agency (confirmed by a long-time IC representative).
  • This whole thing was a Deep State cabal/Democrat set-up and conspiracy, as being revealed on a daily if not hourly basis. The goal is/was to serve as the basis for impeaching POTUS.
  • The Ukraine hoax is being debunked further debunked with each passing day.

It should be readily apparent that, after over two years of incessant hoaxes and lies being perpetrated on Americans by Democrats in Congress and the media and their allies in the Deep State, we are headed for a civil war in this country if these people are not held accountable – and harshly so! – for their actions.

The Democrats are attempting to nullify a presidential election and also turn America into a one-party totalitarian socialist/communist state using authoritarianism to control political speech and stifle opposing viewpoints. Their crackpot socialist economic and social policies will require a totalitarian communist dictatorship to force it all down our throats. The sedition perpetrators associated with the Russia and Ukraine hoaxes now deserve not just long jail terms, but firing squads. These criminals are hell-bent on destroying the US for their singular goal of obtaining total and complete power over all three branches of the federal government, and to make up the rules, the laws, and reinvent the Constitution as they please to suit their purposes.

The Ukraine hoax has smoked them all out; we see their spinning, lies, and outright panic daily as we listen to their public statements and cable news interviews. Everything we hold dear in this country – especially the rule of law and its equal application to all Americans – is riding on a full exposure of the Ukraine hoax. This includes all of its tentacles leading to the Democrat Party, Deep State, and their Uniparty partners in the Republican Party like the Romneys and McCains.

May the Barr/Durham investigation lead to the arrest and prosecution of all the perpetrators, no matter how high or how low! And may the Deep State be gutted and bureaucratic norms restored across the federal government to at least a semblance of non-political even-handedness, especially to include correcting the Obama-instigated whistleblower statute changes while they’re at it.

The end.

The Transgender Craze: WTF?

Many LGBT-rights activists never believed Donald Trump’s campaign promises to be their friend. With his move to ban transgender people from military service on Wednesday, July 26, 2017, on top of other actions and appointments, they now see him as openly hostile. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)

According to the Fifth Edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association, gender dysphoria, or transgenderism, affects between 0.002% and 0.014 of the population at large.  In other words, it is extremely rare and it affects men more than women.  Given these stark statistics, it becomes obvious that something else is going on when it comes to the “trans craze.”

Depending on who you listen to, being transgender is either a most profound decision to live one’s life as they truly see it, or it is a mental affliction.  There is no disagreement that trans rights have jumped ahead of gay rights in the hierarchy of social justice activists.  The trans craze has even jumped over the Pokemon Go craze.

In Great Britain, many schools are facing a problem as many at private boy and girl schools are coming out as transgender or “non-binary.”  In a single year- 2018- almost 2,600 British school-age children were referred to a Gender Identity Service clinic.  These clinics provide services to trans kids, including hormonal treatments and surgery.

Some school administrators have noted that many of those who have come out as transgender are just trying to be cool or rebellious.  Others were just trying to be radical or were being influenced by older students and YouTube stars claiming to be transgender.   Unfortunately, they also noticed that many of those who have proclaimed their transgender status to the world happen to be vulnerable, particularly autistic.

Many of these students in Britain do not “follow through” on their transgender fallacy, but almost 2,600 have under the aegis of these Gender Identity Service clinics.  Hence, it may be easy to dismiss the trans craze as another manifestation of the rebelliousness of youth.  Everyone holds some cringeworthy beliefs from their childhood.  Twilight was all the rage not too long ago with a strange infatuation with vampirism.  And who can forget My Chemical Romance?  Part of growing up is learning how to test the boundaries and to see what you could get away with as you form a personality whether that includes the length, color or style of your hair, the clothes you wear, the music you listen to, the books you read, and the movies you watch.  But changing one’s gender on a whim was never part of that process, but is becoming so now.

The research shows that the trans craze is less real than it is a social contagion, according to researcher Lisa Littman at Brown University.  Her research has shown that children exposed to peers who have recently come out as transgender or exposure to social media stars have an increased tendency to declare their transgender status at some point.  Further, she showed that besides simply declaring themselves transgender, they are more likely to accept the dogma of the social justice movement.  They lashed out at heterosexual people, especially white males, tended to play “pronoun police” at home with their parents, and often referred to their parents as not “parents” but as “breeders.”  The research showed that the vocabulary sounded “wooden” and “scripted.”  There is a good reason for that observation: it is almost word-for-word from the trans activist movement.

Other researchers have referred to it as a “mass sociogenic illness” and have cautioned educators.  They are not heeding that advice.  In Australia, even though the book was on the shelves since 2014, only recently has anyone taken notice of these words from an author quoting a person in a book about transgenders:

From six up, I used to kiss other guys in my neighbourhood, make out with them, and perform oral sex on them. I liked it. I used to love oral. And I touched their you-know-whats. We were really young but that’s what we did.

Transgender awareness days are becoming more commonplace in preschools.  In Britain, transgender charities are promoting puberty-blocking hormonal therapy among educators to foist as a choice for children under the age of 12.  The taxpayer-funded BBC instructs viewers that there are now over 100 gender identities.  That “fact” has yet to be proven except in the mind of the transgender activists.  Humorously, one is called “genderf@!&” where it is acceptable to combine a beard with a padded bra.  What used to be called transvestism is now called normal.

Challenging transgender activism can be dangerous to your professional health.  Take the case of Mario Lopez who questioned whether a child of three could choose their gender.  Lopez was forced to apologize by the Twitter mob for making “ignorant and insensitive” remarks faster than you can say “Saved by the bell.”  Ironically, his “ignorance” and “insensitivity” were actually the truth and required no apology.  Can we first allow a child to tie their own shoes, learn the alphabet and add two-digit numbers before they “get to choose” their gender?

The big thing in education these days is teaching our children acceptance.  There is a huge difference between accepting diversity and encouraging children who cannot tie a shoelace to change their gender with hormone therapy or, in the extreme, genital mutilation.

Western civilization is no longer under the sway of religious morality.  There no longer is a right and a wrong.  Everything is permitted.  But parents and educators can be the arbiters of morality.  It may cost you a job or it may cost you the wrath of the Twitter lynch mob.  However, the consequences of rash gender reassignment and hormonal therapies may leave an even longer trail of people with a lifetime of regret and suicidal dead bodies.

For the sake of 0.002 to 0.014% of the population, will we look back on these times of transgender activism and cringe?  Will transgenderism be the new Twilight, mullet, or My Chemical Romance?

Man Attempts Armed Robbery, Accidentally Gives His Victim the Gun (Video)

Not every crook went to Harvard.

Though, I’m sure some did.

Earlier, I covered the incredible story of a man who reported a crime to cops but failed to consider one breathtakingly important detail (here).

Here’s another headscratcher, as reported by good ol’ News Channel 5 in Nashville.

A man in Paducah, Kentucky had a big idea Monday night: Rob the local Country Inn and Suites.

How many people pay for their hotel stay with cash?

Aw, sometimes it’s better not to sweat the small stuff, like figuring out if there’ll be any dough where you’re gonna go thievin’.

The guy ran into the hotel with his mask and his gun and went rip-roarin’ into the annals of criminal history.

At first, he found the lobby empty, so he let himself into the workers’ area. The clerk returned to find him at the register and, from the looks of the security video, ordered him back to the customer’s side of the desk. At a point, the crook tried to climb over it, and she pushed him the heck off.

She then tossed what looked like a pile of loose bills from a stripper stage onto the counter.

The dude had clearly forgotten to bring a bag.

But sometimes it’s better not to worry about the little things, like how you’re gonna carry the loot.

The benevolent, bossy lady gave him a plastic bag.


Some of the money fell into the floor. When he leaned down to get it, it seems, he accidentally spilled out the rest.

He had quite the mess to pick up and stuff into that thin, crinkly bag, and a man’s only got two hands, so…

The guy laid his firearm on the counter while he took care of stealin’.

Sometimes it better not to fret over where you leave your gun while you’re performing armed robbery.

From the video, you can imagine the wheels turning in the woman’s head.

The guy’s up, he’s down, he’s turned around…

There’s the gun…

Finally, while’s he’s lollygaggin’ in the floor, she grabs the pistol. He lunges for it, too, but she wins.

The thief skeedaddled.

The end.

Just kidding: For some unknown reason, the guy came back into the hotel all “I’m Mr. Big Pants.”

He demanded she give him the gun.

She demanded that she didn’t, and she checked the piece to make sure it was ready for a fatal firing.

He climbed over the counter as she pointed the hand cannon at center mass.

This time, the unwanted guest decided it was time to check out of the hotel.

As it turned out, the gun had been reported stolen from a home on Adams Street in Paducah on September 20th.

Inside one Cory T. Phillips’s car was found a computer from the same Adams Street hit. The 26-year-old had been pulled over for not wearing his seatbelt.

The guy clearly needs to take a course on safety.

He’s been charged with first-degree robbery and receiving stolen property.

If his fellow inmates catch wind of the video, something tells me he’s gonna have a hard time in the Joint.

But perhaps he’s got an even bigger mass of folks ready to give him a bit of What For, about half a state’s worth: During the robbery, he was sportin’ an Alabama Crimson Tide hat. Folks in Bama don’t appreciate their team being used for ill.

It’s a good thing he didn’t attempt the stunt in the Heart of Dixie; they don’t have to reach for the counter — I promise you, they’ve got their own.
