    US Defense Watch ^ | April 29, 2016 | Ray Starmann
    In the hit 1970’s comedy, MASH, Corporal Max Klinger was a street savvy enlisted man from Toledo, Ohio, who had one goal; to return home in one piece with a Section 8 Psycho Discharge, courtesy of Army psychiatrists. Klinger’s modus operandi was to pose as a woman, outfitted in the latest 1950’s fashions he had purchased from the Spiegel Catalog. Klinger was not really transgender or transsexual, he was just a guy who wanted OUT, out of the Army. The hilarity ensued as he came up with scheme after scheme to escape the lean green machine with a Section 8,...

    Pastor, lawmakers weigh in on controversial issueLawmakers in North Carolina sparked a national debate when they passed legislation requiring people to use the restroom that corresponds with the gender of their birth. Could Texas follow suit? Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, a Republican, said he would support passing laws similar to what North Carolina has done. "I'm not interested in the reasons why a man wants to go into the ladies room. It's just not appropriate. There's no merit in this argument," Patrick said. Texas state Sen. Donna Campbell (R-New Braunfels) said she's on the same page as Patrick. "I...

    Target’s stock price and its favorability among shoppers are crashing as the public rebukes the retail giant for ignoring their vigorous protest against mixed-sex changing rooms and bathrooms. The company’s stock was two cents shy of $84 on August 19, when it revealed it would not allow shoppers to use single-sex bathrooms or changing rooms. Instead, all rooms were opened up to anyone claiming to be of either sex. As of 4.00 p.m. Friday, the stock had dropped almost $4.50, down to $79.50. That’s a huge loss of 5 percent in stock value, costing shareholders roughly $2.5 billion in company...

(Screenshot: YouTube) At a Christian prayer event in the U.S. Capitol’s Statuary Hall, Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn said Israel and America were founded on “God’s calling” but that America today is driving God “out of its public squares,” and that in legalizing homosexual “marriage,” the Supreme Court had overruled “the laws of the Almighty.” Rabbi Kahn added that in celebrating that ruling by illuminating the White House in the colors of the gay rainbow, President Barack Obama took the “sacred colors of God’s covenant” and turned them “against...

The Massachusetts Music Educators Association has published an article warning school music teachers across the state that they must provide “LGBTQ-friendly” classrooms or else risk having a “hostile” climate that impairs students’ academic success and mental health. The article, published in the Spring 2016 edition of the Massachusetts Music Educators Journal, lays out a list of radical steps that music teachers should take in order to provide a “safe learning environment” for students. These include: Incorporate LGBT composers and musicians into the curriculum Change “heterosexual” lyrics...

    BARBOURSVILLE, W.Va. (WSAZ)-- A man using the restroom at the Huntington Mall was shocked when he noticed he wasn't getting as much privacy as is typically expected. Barboursville Police Chief Mike Coffey says a young man, only 18-years-old, maneuvered his cellphone under a restroom stall on three separate occasions to video-record the man as he was partially undressed. It was reported at 4:30 p.m. Thursday. According to the criminal complaint, police searched the suspect's cell phone and found video of the victim, along with a video of another man using the bathroom in the mall earlier in the day.

    With regard to its designs for our nation, debasement has been the name of the game for the political left for a long time. While volumes could be written on the moral debasement alone catalyzed by the left, America’s standing in the world, our economy, our educational system, our worldview and collective self-image, among many other things, have been targets for incremental debasement by the left. When liberals began targeting the sexual attitudes of our population through mass media and junk science such as Alfred Kinsey’s perverted sex studies, suddenly the worst thing one could be was a prude, and...

    A comment by Attorney General Maura Healey telling those uncomfortable with sharing a bathroom with a transgender person to “hold it” has rankled critics of a transgender rights bill, who said they’d be vilified as bigots if they used the same language amid the heated debate over the legislation. Healey, an advocate of the bill, appeared Tuesday before a State House panel and advocated for passage of the legislation, which would prohibit discrimination against transgender people and allow them to use a bathroom or locker room that fits their gender identity. Healey, in addressing the panel, took aim at those...

    On Wednesday, an important House committee passed a bill that would abolish marriage licenses in Alabama and effectively nullify both sides of the contentious debate on same-sex marriage. If passed into law, the bill would essentially remove the state from the business of marriage. Sen. Greg Albritton (R-Bay Minette) introduced Senate Bill 143 (SB143) in February, where it was passed by a 23-3 vote last month.. The legislation would abolish all requirements to obtain a marriage license in Alabama. Instead, probate judges would simply record civil contracts of marriage between two individuals based on signed affidavits. “All requirements to obtain...

    Welcome to life in totalitarian America, where even going to the bathroom and identifying the sex of an adult have now become intensely political acts. Totalitarianism is about the politicization of everything, and once people’s careers can be destroyed by the New Bathroom Order if they publicly object to the once-bizarre idea of men in the ladies’ room–we’re there. Ask the now-unemployed Curt Schilling. Totalitarianism is about using force to gain political goals.

    Dozens of Methodist leaders are objecting to Mississippi’s new religious objections law, saying it violates their religious principles. More than 30 ministers from around the state and nation published an open letter Monday saying the so-called “religious freedom” law goes against Christian teachings to love and respect all people. The group joins major businesses, human rights groups and legal experts in opposing the incoming law, which they say discriminates against the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. […] Pastor Bruce Case of Madison, Mississippi, was among those who signed the letter opposing the law. He said the law creates a...

    On Friday, Caitlyn Jenner penned an op-ed for WhoSay lamenting new so-called “anti-LGBT” laws in places like North Carolina and Mississippi. The male Olympian turned Woman of the Year is upset that ordinances which would have mandated private and public entities statewide to open their bathrooms and locker-rooms up to individuals based on gender identity as opposed to biology have been blocked by laws like North Carolina’s HB 2. Jenner claims that such blockades and religious freedom legislation allows discrimination, particularly to “transgender youth,” and denies that allowing men into women's restrooms could in any way be harmful to women...

    DENVER (CBS4)– The Colorado Supreme Court decided to let an appellate court ruling that a bakery violated the state’s anti-discrimination law when it turned away a gay couple stand by refusing to hear the case. On Monday, the state Supreme Court let the lower court ruling stand. Attorneys for Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, filed the appeal last fall. They argued the government shouldn’t force Phillips to violate his Christian beliefs.

    There is simply no way to read this other than that they stand by what was told to Andy Park in the video. A man, dressed as a man, who does not claim to be a woman, and does not claim to identify as a woman, may use the restroom designated for women if he feels more comfortable there.

    People have taken to social media to express disgust and outrage over Target’s decision to allow transgender people to use any bathroom or fitting room.

And you’ll always be accepted, respected and welcomed at Target.”

    A black doctor who was fired for supposedly inflammatory sermons unrelated to his medical work filed a lawsuit against the state of Georgia on Wednesday, claiming religious discrimination. This is particularly ironic, considering the governor of that state recently vetoed a religious liberty bill.Dr. Eric Walsh previously served on President Obama's Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS, was a board member of the Latino Health Collaborative, and started California's first city-run dental clinic for low-income families dealing with AIDS. Nevertheless, Walsh was fired only one week after being hired by Georgia's Department of Public Health. Right before Walsh was terminated, the...

    DENVER — The Colorado Supreme Court declined to hear the case of a Lakewood baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. The decision upholds a ruling by the Colorado Court of Appeals last summer that found Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips cannot cite religious beliefs or free-speech rights in refusing to make a wedding case for a same-sex couple.

    Ted Cruz is a coward. He's other things — a GOP presidential candidate, a senator from Texas, possibly the Zodiac Killer (Google it) — but most of all, and most unquestionably, he's a coward. A coward mocks what he doesn't understand. A coward seeks political gain by maligning others. A coward talks about North Carolina's controversial bathroom law, which requires transgender people to use the restroom that matches the gender on their birth certificate, by saying this at a Sunday campaign event: "If Donald Trump dresses up as Hillary Clinton, he still can't go to the girl's bathroom." Hah! The...
