When you read this tweet from the ACLU, it sounds like West Virginia’s attorney general is trying to block a 12-year-old transgender girl from attending school. West Virginia's attorney general is trying to block a 12-year-old transgender girl from continuing to participate in school — and he's trying to take the case all the way to the Supreme Court. We urge the Court to reject this egregious and cruel case. — ACLU (@ACLU) March 20, 2023 Well, this is a lie. — Chad Felix Greene (@chadfelixg) March 21, 2023 Yes, it is. By “continuing to participate in school,”...

The Illinois chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union slammed Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot for trying to recruit student volunteers for her reelection campaign through an “inappropriately coercive” pitch to teachers. Lightfoot’s team sent an email to Chicago Public Schools teachers Wednesday, urging them to offer class credit to their students in exchange for their helping out on the campaign. “We’re simply looking for enthusiastic, curious and hard-working young people eager to help Mayor Lightfoot win this spring,” the email, obtained by WTTW News, read. The campaign claimed to the outlet that the pitch was also intended to cultivate civic...

ACLU calls for crackdown on FBI use of intel community to spy on Americans

The American Civil Liberties Union is calling for an overhaul of FBI rules after The Washington Times reported that agents used the CIA and National Security Agency to spy on Americans. The ACLU urged the bureau to impose new limits on agents’ power to investigate Americans without warrants. The FBI’s rule book, rewritten in 2021, revealed details about how the FBI tasks the CIA and NSA for help on matters including assessments, which are investigations that can involve surveillance without a court order against people not accused of a crime.

The American Civil Liberties Union threatened a Memphis hospital with complaints to the Department of Health and Human Services and the Office for Civil Rights if it does not resume transgender surgeries for patients before the end of 2022, according to the Daily Mail. Now, the hospital says it will be "moving forward" with the surgeries before the end of the year. The ACLU threatened Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare with a lawsuit on behalf of a 19-year-old named Chris Evans whose surgery, scheduled for early December, was canceled. Evans allegedly suffers from gender dysphoria, and according to the ACLU, his...

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Civil rights advocates say a Memphis hospital is no longer providing gender-affirming surgeries, a move they argue is illegal and discriminatory. According to the American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee, Memphis-based Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare alerted their client, Chris Evans, on Nov. 21 that all gender-affirming surgeries were canceled due to a newly adopted policy. Evans, who the ACLU says suffers from gender dysphoria, had been scheduled for a surgery at MLH less than a week later. The ACLU claims that MLH’s new policy discriminates on the basis of sex, which would violate the nondiscrimination provision...

Union urges voters to support candidates who will re-establish law and order at the border. After another clash with foreign nationals illegally entering the U.S., the union representing Border Patrol agents is urging Americans to vote on Nov. 8 for candidates who will defend them, the rule of law, and the southern border. On Monday, mostly single male Venezuelans, Mexicans and Hondurans crossed the Rio Grande River and attempted to illegally enter the U.S. near El Paso, Texas, and allegedly assaulted Border Patrol agents. The National Border Patrol Council, the union representing the agents, said, "Make no mistake, all of...

ACLU Sue Nye County Nevada for Counting Ballots by Hand and Not Using Questionable Voting Machines

Years ago the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) was a civil rights organization that valued free speech, free thought, freedom of assembly, freedom of religion, and a free society. Today, the ACLU ignores individual rights and is just another branch of the Socialist left pushing total government control of your life. The ACLU for some reason is suing Nye County Nevada for counting their ballots by hand and not by machine. It’s much harder for Democrats to cheat when they can’t rely on the voting machines. See the 2020 election to find out more. [Linking quote to Las Vegas 5]...

The general counsel for the National Archives and Records Administration, who was central to coordinating between NARA and former President Donald Trump's attorneys regarding the documents at Mar-a-Lago, previously sued then-President Ronald Reagan in 1989 while working at the American Civil Liberties Union. Mar-a-Lago was raided by the FBI's Washington Field Office on Aug. 8, after Trump's team had voluntarily given documents to NARA and was working through issues of executive privilege. Trump defense attorney Evan Corcoran wrote NARA General Counsel Gary Stern on April 29 that the former president wanted to personally review the documents that NARA had received...

Breitbart ^ | 2/25/22 | Spencer Lindquist
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which previously opposed the administration of a drug to chemically castrate sex offenders, is now advocating for children to be able to take the chemically castrating drugs as puberty blockers. Just one year ago, the ACLU was previously a vocal opponent of a law in Alabama that mandated chemical castration on certain convicted sex offenders. Former Executive Director of the ACLU of Alabama Randall Marshall called the practice of chemical castration “medical experimentation,” also claiming that it “has no basis in the medical community.” Dillon Nettles, a policy analyst with the ACLU of Alabama,...

A group representing 600 Texas families and backed by the American Civil Liberties Union sued Texas Governor Greg Abbott on Wednesday to stop state officials from treating transgender healthcare for minors as a form of child abuse. In February, the Texas governor ordered the Department of Family and Protective Services to open child abuse investigations of families that provide minors with transgender care such as estrogen or testosterone treatments or hormone blockers that delay the onset of puberty. The measure was part of a wave of initiatives by Republican governors and legislators affecting transgender rights across the country, with some...

The Indiana legislature has overridden Gov. Eric Holcomb’s veto of a bill banning biological males from participating in sports reserved for female student-athletes, prompting the American Civil Liberties Union to file a lawsuit seeking to block the legislation from taking effect. On Tuesday, the Republican-controlled Indiana legislature overrode Holcomb’s veto of House Enrolled Act 1041. The bill proclaims that biologically male students who identify as females “may not participate on an athletic team or sport designated under this section as being a female, women’s, or girls’ athletic team or sport.”The Indiana House of Representatives overrode the veto in a 67-28...

A group that has singled out journalists and Democrats in undercover operations contends that prosecutors misled a federal court and sought unwarranted gag orders during a federal investigation of the group’s ties to the alleged theft of a diary belonging to President Joe Biden’s daughter Ashley. In November, the FBI conducted predawn raids at the home of Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe and the homes of two other individuals who worked with the group. The agents acted with warrants that allowed them to seize phones and computers to search for evidence of trafficking in interstate property. The raids generated controversy...

ACLU slams Lightfoot's curfews for Chicago minors, say it will increase police encounters

The American Civil Liberties Union of Chicago took aim at Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot's announced new restrictions for minors in the city as the mayor unveiled another new curfew for young people. "Curfews and bans create group culpability for young people - whether they are there to enjoy the sights and sounds of downtown or something else," the ACLU said in a statement to ANC 7 Monday. "The vague description - relying on an undefined 'responsible adult' - allowing young people to be present in the park and the promise of strict enforcement will result in unnecessary stops and arrests...

The ACLU claims that there’s a War on Women… and it’s fighting it. "We're Not Stupid: Outrageous Quotes from the War on Women," the ACLU had headlined a post about its pro-abortion activism in 2013. A decade later the ACLU is arguing in court that women don't exist. Not only does the ACLU’s current abortion coverage eliminate any mention of women, but in response to a civil rights lawsuit by women, it actually filed a motion arguing they don’t exist. Last year, the Women’s Liberation Front, one of the few remaining feminist groups that have rejected transgender intersectionality’s displacement of...

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) revealed in testimony during the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard $100 million defamation trial that it had ghost-written the Washington Post op-ed allegedly accusing Depp of domestic abuse, reportedly timing it for the release of “Aquaman” in which she played a role. The ACLU also stated that Heard had only donated $1.3 million to their coffers after promising in 2016 to fork over $3.5 million from her divorce settlement with Depp, stating that the actress was having financial difficulties. The organization also contends that Heard’s ex, South African billionaire Elon Musk donated $500,000 of...

Two women at New Jersey's only all-women's prison have both fallen pregnant after having sex with transgender inmates. The pregnant women, who were not identified, are housed at the embattled Edna Mahan Correctional Facility, in Clinton, which New Jersey Governor announced plans to close last year. Prison bosses said that in both instances, the sex was consensual. It is unclear if the women had sex with the same transgender inmate, or if it was two different inmates. Edna Mahan houses 27 transgender prisoners, and over 800 women altogether. It is also unclear how far along the two inmates are, and...

In Push for Mask Mandates, ACLU Betrays the Civil Liberties of Vulnerable Children

The American Civil Liberties Union was once considered a bulwark against government intrusion and overreach. Its mission was simple: to defend the constitutional rights of individuals, regardless of those individuals’ political affiliations. But that law firm is long gone. The ACLU of today cares little about bureaucratic overreach so long as the officials doing the overreaching are on its political team, and it gladly sacrifices the civil liberties of individuals if doing so advances its left-leaning agenda. Just a few weeks ago, the ACLU of Virginia filed a lawsuit against Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin over his executive order mandating that...
