  • Trump Rescinds Obama Edict on Bathrooms [semi-satire]

    President Trump's Executive Order rescinding President Obama's Executive Order commanding federally funded institutions to permit individuals to use the bathrooms of the sex they imagine themselves to be sparked outrage from the gender-confused and their advocates. Illinois Democratic gubernatorial aspirant J.B. Pritzker used Trump's action to solidify his credentials to the deranged base of the Party by advocating that "everyone should use the other gender's bathroom as a protest against Trump's tyranny." Pritzker's ploy was criticized by Illinois State Rep. Will Guzzardi (D-Chicago) as "missing the point of the Obama edict. Knowingly using the bathroom of the 'other gender' contradicts...

    Friend -- Over the past several months, we heard a lot about "mass deportation" and the implementation of a "deportation force" -- but I hoped I'd never live to see the day​. Unfortunately, it's about to become reality. This week, the Department of Homeland Security issued guidance regarding their immigration enforcement plans, "set[ting] the stage for mass deportations," as CNN characterized it. Rather than a common-sense focus on those who have committed serious violent crimes, the new administration is taking steps to vastly increase the population of immigrants who will be targeted, detained, and deported. The new guidance not only...
  • Despite the Hysteria, Trump Is Trending Less Authoritarian Than Obama

    National Review ^ | February 23, 2017 | David French
    Through personnel and policy, President Trump is limiting the executive branch. Lost in most of the coverage of President Trump’s decision to rescind the Obama administration’s transgender mandates is a fundamental legal reality — the Trump administration just relinquished federal authority over gender-identity policy in the nation’s federally funded schools and colleges. In other words, Trump was less authoritarian than Obama. And that’s not the only case. Consider the following examples where his administration, through policy or personnel, appears to be signaling that the executive branch intends to become less intrusive in American life and more accountable to internal and...

    There is no federal law that requires any educational institution to refrain from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation. There are only federal laws that require institutions to refrain from discriminating on the basis of sex. Like it or not, that is a fact. The Obama administration decided that it would be a good thing if schools that receive federal funding accommodated transgendered students by permitting them to use bathrooms and locker-rooms that aligned with their own subjective sexual orientation. Having made that decision, there were two ways the Obama administration could have proceeded to achieve that goal. One...

    Although the Oroville Dam supplies drinking water to the entire State of California, no politician seemed to care…especially Obama. Almost 200,000 residents north of Sacramento were ordered to evacuate while authorities attempted to repair erosion of the dam’s emergency spillway, which would release “catastrophic” flood waters if it collapsed. We are talking “catastrophic” here! There is no public record of the dam, the tallest in the U.S., receiving any of the federal money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which was intended for repairs to infrastructure around the nation. Other projects that received money from the stimulus package were...

    Twelve state legislatures are considering bills that would require transgender people to use bathroom and locker room facilities based on their “biological sex” or birth gender, according to the National Conference of States Legislatures. The tally provides an insight into how states might proceed now that President Trump has rescinded an Obama administration order that required schools across the country to allow transgender students to use whatever bathroom or locker room facilities they choose. Matt Sharp, legal counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom, said the repeal will inspire a flurry of legislative activity at the local level.

The leader of the group and former associate White House counsel Ian Bassin warned that democracies don't end quickly. He said they often "decline over a period of years that happen through a series of much smaller steps," in an apparent suggestion that the Trump administration would...

    Former House Speaker John Boehner predicted on Thursday that a full repeal and replace of Obamacare is “not going to happen.” Boehner, who resigned in 2015 amid unrest among conservatives, said at an Orlando health care conference that the idea that a repeal-and-replace plan would blitz through Congress is just “happy talk.” Instead, he said changes to former President Barack Obama’s signature legislative achievement would likely be relatively modest. “[Congressional Republicans are] going to fix Obamacare – I shouldn’t call it repeal-and-replace, because it’s not going to happen,” he said. Boehner’s comments come as Republican lawmakers across the country are...

    Records from former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.'s divorce case show how he has been able to collect hefty benefit checks from the federal government after serving time in prison for looting hundreds of thousands of dollars from his campaign fund. Jackson, 51, receives about $138,400 a year — more than he made as a freshman congressman in 1995. Most of that — about $100,000 — is workers' compensation and tax-free, according to Chicago attorney Barry Schatz, who is representing Jackson in his divorce proceeding.

The policy reversal will likely protect single-sex civic groups and institutions — including single-sex bathrooms — across the nation from lawsuits and will put new pressure on federal judges to preserve the central role of biology in defining whether a person is male or female.

The negation of equality and the suppression of fundamental human rights in Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s Russia, Mao’s China, Pol Pot’s Cambodia, and Castro’s Cuba followed directly from the systematic denial of...

The deal was publicly announced the Monday after Trump’s inauguration.

Democrats really believed that a bunch of spoiled, screaming razor-blade snowflakes invading town halls and lecturing people about their Western, white privilege was going to be well-received.

    The U.S. Constitution must be enforced and stop the political insurgency and guerrilla warfare activities bent on the destruction of duly elected public office holders. If not, the U.S. will have become just another Third World hell hole The violent thugs who disrupted Rep. Tom McClintock’s recent town hall meeting in Roseville, CA were clearly organized and had a plan. There was nothing organic about that town hall riot, or any of the other town hall meetings held by Congressional Republicans around the country, ending in violent protests.

    On Friday the U.S. Ambassador to Somalia, Stephen Schwartz, presented a gift to the new President of Somalia, a hat that reads “Make Somalia Great Again.” Ambassador Schwartz was appointed by former President Barack Obama and was sworn into his position in June 2016 according to the International Business Times. Reactions to this gesture on twitter were overwhelmingly negative because let’s face it: Somalia has never been great.

    Organizing for Action, the activist group that morphed from Barack Obama’s first presidential campaign, has partnered with the newly-formed Indivisible Project for “online trainings” on how to protest President Donald Trump’s agenda. Last week, Breitbart News extensively reported that Indivisible leaders are openly associated with groups financed by billionaire George Soros. Politico earlier this month profiled Indivisible in an article titled, “Inside the protest movement that has Republicans reeling.” The news agency not only left out the Soros links, but failed to note that the organizations cited in its article as helping to amplify Indivisible’s message are either financed directly...

The grant provides a significant part of the money required to install a $2-billion electrical power system on the Bay Area’s Caltrain commuter rail system, allowing the rail to retire its diesel locomotives.

    ..Again, if you’ve followed the internal dynamics of the players, and their ideological intentions over time, you can see a clear motive to undermine King Abdullah (Jordan), al-Sisi (Egypt), Netanyahu (Israel) and President Trump – by stirring up domestic oppositional extremists (ie. The Muslim Brotherhood) within each nation. (Reuters) Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met secretly a year ago with the leaders of Egypt and Jordan in a failed attempt by the Obama administration to convene a wider regional summit on Israeli-Palestinian peace, Israel’s Haaretz daily said on Sunday....
