    Parents ask Supreme Court to hold Indiana reponsible for removing transgender child from their home ... In 2019, Mary and Jeremy's son told them that he identified as a girl, but in line with their Catholic religious beliefs that God created human beings with an immutable sex, male or female, they did not believe in referring to him using pronouns and a name inconsistent with his biology. ACLU SUES CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL FOR HALTING ADULT TRANSGENDER SURGERIES In addition, the Coxes believed their son was struggling with underlying mental health conditions, including an eating disorder, so they sought therapeutic care for...

    A transgender inmate serving a 55-year sentence for strangling her 11-month-old stepdaughter to death filed a civil lawsuit against the prison chaplain for allegedly prohibiting her from wearing a hijab outside her immediate bed quarters, despite identifying as Muslim. Autumn Cordellionè, also known as Jonathan C. Richardson, is currently serving out her sentence at the Branchville Correctional Facility, an Indiana Department of Correction state prison for men. According to the lawsuit filed Nov. 30 and obtained by Fox News Digital, a prison chaplain told Cordellionè the hijab was not allowed to be worn outside her immediate bed area. Cordellionè is...

    The ACLU announced on January 16 that actress Busy Philipps is its new “Artist Ambassador for Reproductive Freedom.” Philipps is known for her roles in “Dawson’s Creek,” “Freaks and Geeks,” and “ER,” but in recent years she has become an outspoken advocate of abortion. In 2019, her autobiography revealed that she had an abortion at age 15. In 2020, she spoke at a pro-abortion rally, screaming that because she was able to kill her preborn child, she had a successful career and now has a “beautiful life.” “I have all of this… all of it… because, because, because I was...

    The Hill ^ | 12/27/2023 | ZACH SCHONFELD
    Former President Trump on Wednesday demanded the Maine secretary of state recuse herself from her upcoming decision on the former president’s ballot eligibility under the 14th Amendment, citing her past statements about the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. Unlike other states, where plaintiffs have sued over Trump’s eligibility in court, Maine’s system first allows the secretary of state to weigh in. Challengers can then appeal in state court. In response to three petitions challenging Trump’s ballot eligibility, Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows, a Democrat, is set to issue a decision in the coming days.

    Associated Press ^ | December 19, 2023 | Amy Beth Hanson
    The ACLU of Montana has filed a lawsuit challenging a law that defines the word “sex” throughout state code as either male or female, based on a person’s biology at birth. The plaintiffs argue the law denies legal recognition and protections to people who are gender non-conforming. The plaintiffs — a transgender man, a two spirit Native American, a nonbinary person, an intersex individual and a nurse practitioner — also moved for a summary judgement in Monday’s filing in state court in Missoula, asking for the law to be declared unconstitutional. Republican lawmakers who supported the bill “seem to think...

    Fox 4 Dallas ^ | 12/19/2023 | Steven Dial and FOX 4 Staff
    The state of Texas is facing a lawsuit over a new law that allows state and local law enforcement to arrest people who enter Texas illegally. Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed Senate Bill 4 into law in Brownsville on Monday. "We expect a dramatic drop well over 50%, maybe 75%, of the people coming across the border illegally will stop entering through the State of Texas," Abbott said Monday. On Tuesday, the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas, the ACLU, and the Texas Civil Rights Project (TCRP) filed a lawsuit in an Austin federal court to challenge the bill. The...
  • Censorship Is Un-American; Free Speech Is the Answer

    New American Prophet ^ | December 18, 2023 | Jeff Crouere
    Americans are blessed to have constitutional rights, especially the First Amendment right of free speech. As Benjamin Franklin once wrote, whoever “would overthrow the Liberty of a Nation, must begin by subduing the Freeness of Speech.” Free speech is central to liberty, and this belief underpins the necessity of the First Amendment. This amendment holds the powerful to account and protects the right of Americans to express themselves freely.

    Circulating | May 2017 | Richard Higgins
    Here is the entire memo... POTUS & POLITICAL WARFARE   May 2017   BACKGROUND.  The Trump administration is suffering under withering information campaigns designed to first undermine, then de legitimize and ultimately remove the President. Possibly confusing these attacks with an elevated interplay of otherwise normal D.C. partisan infighting and adversarial media relations, the White House response to these campaigns reflects a political advocacy mindset that it is intensely reactive, severely under-inclusive and dangerously inadequate to the threat. If action is not taken to re-scope and respond to these hostile campaigns very soon, the administration risks implosion and subsequent early...
  • Siding with Trump, the ACLU says a judge’s gag order in Jan. 6 case is too sweeping

    The American Civil Liberties Union sued former President Donald Trump or his administration more than 400 times during his tenure in the White House.But now the ACLU is siding with Trump in the criminal case that charges he conspired to disrupt the peaceful transfer of power — telling a judge that a gag order she’s imposed sweeps too broadly in restraining Trump’s speech.“[I]f we allow his free speech rights to be abridged, we know that other unpopular voices — even ones we agree with — will also be silenced,” said Anthony D. Romero, executive director of the ACLU. “As much...

    Far-left Judge Engoron put Trump on the witness stand after he blasted the former president and accused him of potentially violating the gag order with his remarks to the press. He also fined Trump $10,000. Radical Marxist New York Attorney General Letitia James is seeking $250 million in ‘damages’ when there is no victim in this fraud case and she is also seeking to ban Trump and his sons from operating any businesses in New York. President Trump briefly spoke with the press during the mid-morning break. He criticized Michael Cohen as a “discredited witness” and called Arthur Engoron a...

    This week at the request of Special Counsel Jack Smith, Judge Tanya Chutkan imposed a "gag order" on former President Donald Trump. She cited the risk that "allowing Trump unfettered freedom of speech could taint the jury pool and undermine the Special Counsel's efforts to gain a conviction against the leader of a huge domestic terrorist cell that is trying to subvert the authority of President Biden. Trump's contention that preventing him from speaking about a rigged 2020 election is itself an attempt to rig the 2024 election is rejected." Smith hailed the order, saying that "Trump has abused freedom...

    Daily Wire host Matt Walsh dove into the “huge” ruling from the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals that upheld Tennesee’s and Kentucky’s bans on puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and gender surgeries on gender-confused children. In its 2-1 ruling rejecting a challenge to the laws from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and families of trans-identifying children, the federal court “thoroughly dismantled, point-by-point, every disingenuous argument from trans activists,” Walsh said in a thread posted to X. “The case arose because of laws in TN and KY banning the use of puberty blockers and sterilizing cross-sex hormones on children. The laws...

    ACLU is mad. BIG mad. They really really really want little kids to be able to mutilate their bodies because the adults around them are mentally ill and need their children to somehow justify their own, warped beliefs about gender for them. It's really a sad and ugly movement when you think about the damage that is being done to children ... for adults. We're so glad they lost. BREAKING: The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals rejected our request to block Tennessee's ban on gender affirming care for transgender youth. This fight is far from over. We'll never stop fighting...

    The transgender inmate, Jonathan C. Richardson, also known as Autumn Cordellione, admitted to killing 'the little f**king b*tch' after he was arrested for the strangulation death of his 11-month-old stepdaughter. Richardson was sentenced to more than five decades behind bars. The lawsuit comes after a new law that was passed this summer during the 2023 legislative session, which prohibits the Indiana Department of Corrections from providing gender-affirming medical care to incarcerated transgender people. But, the ACLU contends that the new law is a violation of the Eighth Amendment's prohibition of cruel and unusual punishment, Fox News reported. On August 28,...

    In November 2020 The Gateway Pundit published information on a little known YouTube video with only 50 or so views at the time. In the video Gabriel Sterling shows up to discuss a number of things regarding the election process. Gabriel Sterling was appointed the COO of the Secretary of State’s office by Brad Raffensperger shortly after Raffensperger was elected to the position in November 2018. Sterling, as COO, would be in charge of budgetary, human resources and administrative operations for the Secretary of State’s office. Sterling, strangely, has also been referred to, in multiple, recent media accounts, as Georgia’s...

    January 6 political prisoner Ryan Samsel has been held in prison without trial now since January 2021. During his two-and-a-half years without trial Ryan has been moved around to 17 different facilities. Ryan has been beaten, abused, tortured, and neglected since his arrest in January 2021. Earlier this week The Gateway Pundit received exclusive photos from Ryan Samsel’s prison cell at the FDC in Philadelphia. The cell was a size of a closet with a light on all of the time. The cell had a thin blue mattress, no sheets or blankets, no clothing, and he was kept here for...

    The state of New Hampshire has been sued after officials removed a historical marker commemorating the birthplace of a communist and labor leader - just weeks after it was installed. The state's Department of Natural and Cultural Resources unveiled a green aluminum sign, bearing the New Hampshire state seal, on May 1 recognizing former Community Party USA head Elizabeth Gurley Flynn as a 'nationally-known labor leader, civil libertarian and feminist organizer.' But the sign was removed just two weeks later at the direction of Republican Gov. Chris Sununu, who has said the 'anti-American sign' will not be put back on...
