  • Court Blocks Coerced Transgender Surgery [semi-satire]

    United States District Court Chief Judge Peter Welte blocked the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) from enforcing an Obamacare mandate that requires all medical professionals to perform gender transition services. "Given that there are plenty of doctors who are ready, willing, and able to perform transgender surgeries, there is no valid reason for coercing those who object to performing such procedures on religious or conscience grounds. The notion that any surgeon needs to be compelled to engage in what he or she considers to be either sacrilegious or destructive mutilation defies logic and morality. The results of compelling...

    A ride that has long been criticized as racist and problematic is finally getting a much-needed update. Today, Disney announced that Jungle Cruise, a boat ride that depicts rivers around the world and what many have called colonialist caricatures of “natives” around them, will be getting an update to remove those problematic depictions. “As Imagineers, it is our responsibility to ensure experiences we create and stories we share reflect the voices and perspectives of the world around us,” Carmen Smith, executive of development and inclusion strategies at Walt Disney Imagineering, said today on the Disney Parks Blog. “With Jungle Cruise,...
  • Biden reverses ban on transgender people in military

    WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden signed an order Monday reversing a Trump-era Pentagon policy that largely barred transgender individuals from serving in the military. The new order, which Biden signed in the Oval Office during a meeting with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, overturns a ban ordered by President Donald Trump in a tweet during his first year in office. It immediately prohibits any service member from being forced out of the military on the basis of gender identity. The decision comes as Biden plans to turn his attention to equity issues that he believes continue to shadow nearly all aspects...

    All three networks on Inauguration Day played a 90 minute special devoted to praising America and patriotism. And while one can question timing of the special (this didn’t happen four years ago), the content was positive and patriotic. ABC and NBC mostly used the half hour prior to the special with panels. CBS, however, offered a segment on how racism may finally be ending now that Joe Biden is president. Reporter Peter Van Sant re-interviewed children the network talked to during Donald Trump’s presidency. These kids were either undocumented or minorities. Apparently, though, bigotry is now finished. Talking to one...
  • Incoming White House Climate Team Blames ‘Systemic Racism’ for Climate Change

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | 01/18/21 | Collin Anderson
    A pair of top incoming White House environmental aides has blamed "systemic racism" as a driver of climate change in an attempt to justify a government-led economic overhaul. President-elect Joe Biden named progressive policy adviser Maggie Thomas as Office of Domestic Climate Policy chief of staff and climate advocate Cecilia Martinez as "senior director for environmental justice" on Thursday. Both Thomas and Martinez have cited racial inequality as perpetuating climate change, arguing that the Biden administration's environmental policy must be centered on "racial and economic justice." "Unless intentionally interrupted, systemic racism will continue to be a major obstacle to creating...

    The Pentagon has deployed 750 specially trained members of the US military — including bomb squads and trauma medics — to Washington, DC, amid security concerns over Wednesday’s inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. The troops also include active-duty personnel trained in “extraction and decontamination operations” following attacks with chemical, biological, nuclear, radiological and explosive weapons, the Department of Defense said Monday.

    They repeated Trump’s lies about widespread fraud as he incited supporters to violently attack Congress and democracy. Why are they still in office? It sounds like a scene from a dystopian movie, but it was a real day in Washington, D.C. On Wednesday, throngs of President Donald Trump’s supporters violently stormed the Capitol, incited by the president himself, with plans to kill House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Vice President Mike Pence and others to stop them from certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s win. They smashed and stole federal property. They attacked police and journalists. They sent hundreds of lawmakers into hiding. Five...

    If you want to see my husband get pissed, call the United States, "our democracy." I dare you! "We are a Constitutional Republic," he'll growl with a glare and he's right. Or rather, we were. We got lost for awhile in a morass of incorporation, debt, wars and subtle changes in legal terminology. Now, thanks to President Trump, we are* a Constitutional Republic again. And this is the crux of why President Trump will serve as our President for the next four years. You see, the old incorporated UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (all caps) was dissolved months ago*.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) announced a new congressional committee to "combat the concentration of wealth in America and its role in triggering 2020's economic collapse. Millions of people lost their jobs. Thousands of businesses were closed. We need to find out how this was allowed to happen." Critics were quick to point out that the government played a major role in the economic misfortune inflicted on so many Americans. In Pelosi's home state it was Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom who ordered a series of stay home and business shutdown orders that spurred the sharpest decline in personal income for...

    What was once the world’s greatest deliberative body is being reduced to a leftist clown show as the “woke” left struts its stuff. On Saturday, news broke that the Democrats are going to remove all gendered words from the House of Representatives. On Sunday, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, a pastor, opened the 117th Congress with a prayer. At its conclusion, he said “amen,” and then added “a-women.” What he said was both stupid and sacrilegious. I wrote here about the newly “woke” House’s push to remove gendered language. I pointed out that, in English at least, gendered words fall into two...

    The current political climate, and more specifically, the politics that have invaded the church, are causing increased division among those who profess to be Christians. Whether it’s a tweet from Beth Moore denouncing so-called Trumpism and nationalism, or a radical right-leaning group pointing to Trump as the Savior, the divide has left many people confused. Here are a few points I’m hoping will help, but first, I’d like to begin with a question: Since when did being concerned about protecting innocent life become nationalism, and wanting God’s Word honored and the freedom to preach the gospel become Trumpism? Could it...

    WASHINGTON — New York is expected to receive $54 billion in emergency coronavirus relief to help its staggering economy once Congress passes a long-awaited $900 billion aid package later Monday, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer told The Post. The deal will include $20 billion in small business loans, $9 billion in $600 direct cash payments, $6.4 billion for enhanced unemployment benefits, $4.2 billion for the cash-strapped Metropolitan Transit Authority, $4 billion for the state’s public schools and $1.3 for emergency rental assistance, his office said. While the package will be an urgently needed shot in the arm for the state...

The 27 lucky pooches — including 18 adorable beagles — will be flown 14 hours from Beijing to Los Angeles by No Dogs Left Behind, which rescues pups from the dog meat trade. “These families are bringing home survivors,” Kristine Wallace, a rep for the group told The Post.

    A lot of conservatives missed the boat on this one, perhaps because the implications are pretty dire for the modern Western way of life. There was an uproar online this week after a man who calls himself "Zinnia Jones" and demands that everyone consider him a female wrote a few tweets regarding minors taking drugs to make themselves somewhat ape the opposite sex. Jones wrote: If children can't consent to puberty blockers which pause any permanent changes even with the relevant professional evaluation, how can they consent to the permanent and irreversible changes that come with their own puberty with...

    In the future, we'll (hopefully) realize that much of the scare over a disease with over a 99.5% recovery rate was intended to depersonalize our lives and separate us from each other. Authoritarian government officials have used the COVID-19 pandemic as a way to increase their control over the populace. Part of that includes removing as much personal engagement as possible. Simple gestures like handshakes are anathema in most of America now, and hugging is out of the question. But the most personal physical experience we can have with another person—sex—has been largely danced around until recently. Leave it to...

    The Seattle City Council is considering a measure that would provide exemption from prosecution for any person who suffers from poverty, homelessness, addiction, or mental illness. In 2019 persons in these classifications accounted for 25,993 thefts, 8,442 assaults, 6,430 property offenses, 4,194 frauds, 3,910 trespasses, and 1,640 narcotics violations. Nearly all of those crimes would have been permitted under the proposed new ordinance. Lisa Herbold, the city councilwoman who proposed the legislation, argued that "these unfortunate people who have been victims of society deserve the right to extract just compensation without fear of further punishment. And since these types of...

    Prominent stock exchange plans to require “token” women, minorities, and LGBTQ people in listed companies’ leadership. When I walk into my local supermarket, I see products from big companies like Kellogg’s and Campbell’s, from smaller companies like Dave’s Killer Bread and Edward & Sons, and occasionally from local companies just getting started in the business of providing food to the world, or at least to the neighborhood. What I don’t see is Safeway or Kroger issuing edicts to those companies telling them how to run their businesses. And why would they? After all, it’s literally none of their business. Just...
