    Selina Soule, a track and field champion who was forced to compete against biological males in high school, pleaded with other women to take a stand in defense of female athletes as she prepares for a legal battle against the state of Connecticut. "Everybody who has encountered this issue needs to speak up and ask for fairness," Soule said Wednesday on "America Reports." "I was one of the very first to start speaking on this issue, and it’s taken awhile, but we are finally starting to get somewhere…we need to protect every single girl in this country," Soule urged "everybody...

    The mainstream media have provided varying explanations for the unexpected rise in blood clots, cardiac events and early death in the past two years: skipping breakfast, falling asleep in front of the TV, "exposure to a sudden gush of water," napping and high noise levels. One possibility they continue to rule out or simply ignore: COVID-19 vaccination in populations at negligible risk from SARS-CoV-2 itself. The authors of a December analysis that found a massive rise in athletes' cardiac-related deaths coinciding with the global vaccination campaign have issued a revised version that more carefully delineates causes and age range in...
  • Doctors Report Startling Rise In Testicular Injuries Among Woman Athletes

    NEW YORK, NY — A new study indicates a disturbing trend as testicular injuries in women's sports are increasing at an astounding rate. Researchers are baffled as these statistics have skyrocketed from literally zero reported testicular injuries among female athletes just a few years ago. "This new wave of testicular injuries to female athletes has really come out of nowhere," said Dr. Ryan Kitchen of Boston College's Institute of Sports Medicine. "Years ago, there were absolutely no reported testicular injuries that occurred during women's sporting events. If only we could determine what led to this sudden rise. Such a puzzle!"...

    The continued refusal to allow the world's top-ranked tennis player Novak Djokovic to enter the US to play in the Miami Open tournament defies common sense. The hang-up is that he hasn't received a covid vaccine. The current scientific evidence indicates that (1) the vaccines are not effective in preventing infection or transmission of the virus, (2) Djokovic has already had and recovered from the disease, which means he has natural immunity that is as good as or better than any vaccine-induced resistance to the disease, and (3) vaccination is not required for the millions who have illegally entered the...

    After years of being a mediocre swimmer on the men’s team, Thomas woke up one morning and identified as transgender, transitioned, joined the women’s team, and started breaking records against his female teammates and tournament competitors. Since robbing real women of opportunities wasn’t enough for him, he also disrespected his teammates by exposing his male genitalia to them in the locker room. And now, Riley Gaines, a former teammate of Thomas, is calling for changes to be made by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). “We were not forewarned beforehand that we would be sharing a locker room with Lia....
  • Plan to collect menstrual data on high school athletes in Florida is voted down

    The Florida High School Athletic Association's board of directors has voted 14-2 to remove questions about high school athletes' menstrual history from a required health form for participation in high school athletics. Thursday's emergency meeting focused on the debate around menstrual cycle information. But in a less-discussed change to the requirements for Florida athletes, the newly adopted form asks students to list their "sex assigned at birth." The previous version asked only for "sex." The vote comes after weeks of controversy surrounding questions on the medical form, which is typically filled out by a physician and submitted to schools. The...

    Despite ‘fact’ checkers’ best efforts to dismiss it as normal, the number of people in this group who died suddenly between January and April 2022 was 1,696% above the historical monthly norm.

    Former Alabama Broncos star running back Ahmaad Galloway died suddenly this week at age 42. Galloway was an eighth-grade English teacher at Compton-Drew Middle School in St. Louis, Missouri. When Galloway did not show up for work, the school contacted authorities. Police conducted a welfare check and found the former football star dead in his apartment. The cause of death has not yet been made public. Compton-Drew Middle School Principal Susan Reid said she knew something wasn’t right. “Ahmaad was always on time, very responsible, so we knew something might be wrong,” Reid told WVTM 13. “There wasn’t anything disrupted...

    There’s an apparent trend that’s forming across America, and for once it’s not a negative one. More Americans are rapidly waking up to the reality that the Covid-19 jabs “may” be ineffective and unsafe. For those who regularly read our stories or hear my shows, you’ve likely been aware of these facts for a long time. But now the “normies” are waking up in droves which is prompting responses from organizations that had previously been firm and confident in their pro-vaxx stances.

    1,249 young healthy athletes have suffered sudden heart attacks or other serious issues since last year, disturbing new data has revealed.

The shocking figures were revealed by Good Sciencing, which has been tracking the deaths and serious health issues of athletes and maintaining a list. The list shows a huge spike in major medical issues among mostly young athletes that started soaring in early 2021 and continued into this year. Data for previous years shows only a fraction of sudden deaths and serious health complications in young athletes. For...

    This is exactly the kind of routine hostility we can expect for students all over the country if Biden successfully writes ‘sexual orientation’ and ‘gender identity’ into the meaning of ‘sex’ in education. Braden Rabidoux had no idea how his life was about to change when his mother got a call from his school principal. Braden, an eighth-grader in Wisconsin’s Kiel Area School District, was the subject of a sexual harassment complaint and investigation, the principal told her. “I was like, ‘What? Sexual harassment? What are you talking about?'” Braden’s mom, Rose Rabidoux, recalled to The Federalist. “Because when I...
