  • Watch: Dr Phil McGraw exposes the dangers of transing children: '10 year olds can't decide which pajamas they want to wear'

    02/22/2024 9:27:31 AM PST · by NetAddicted · 6 replies ^ | Warner Todd Huston
    Former daytime TV powerhouse Dr. Phil McGraw took aim at the American medical establishment on Tuesday, blasting doctors for the harm they are committing by pushing so-called “gender-affirming ca Appearing on The Joe Rogan Experience, the TV doc criticized medical professionals and hospitals pushing transgendering on kids, especially in light of the complete lack of information on what could be the long-term harm it could do. McGraw kicked off his comments on transgendering by noting that the U.S. medical establishment is violating medical ethics by pushing “gender-affirming care.” “It’s interesting they choose words like ‘gender-affirming care.’ You know, that’s interesting...

    Members of Congress continue to suggest that President Joe Biden should be removed under the 25th Amendment to the Constitution—even after a psychiatrist who led a national movement to oust his predecessor called cognitive decline “normal.” Special counsel Robert Hur issued a report earlier this month finding that Biden “willfully retained and disclosed classified materials,” but recommending against prosecution because of Biden’s “diminished faculties in advancing age and his sympathetic demeanor.” “It is sad that it got to this point, but America desperately needs capable leadership in the White House,” Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, told The Daily Signal in a...

    WASHINGTON — The Teamsters union's political action committee donated $45,000 to the Republican National Committee's convention fund in January, according to federal election commission disclosures, but an RNC official told NBC News that "we haven’t received any contribution." The Teamsters PAC’s donations overwhelmingly go toward Democrats, but the $45,000 donation would be the first significant donation to the RNC in years. The fund is specifically designated for the convention rather than general usage.

    Sen. John Fetterman (D-Pa.) panned Democrats who are upping their criticisms of President Biden ahead of the November election, saying they might as well don a “MAGA hat.” Fetterman noted during an interview an uptick in Democrats who have become more critical of Biden lately, and said it’s only helping former President Trump. “I don’t understand why,” Fetterman said, speaking on “Morning Joe” on MSNBC. “I don’t know what’s in it for you to do that whether you’re just chasing clout or you want to make it in the news or anything like that. But if you’re not willing to...

The guild announced the move in a statement posted to the social media site X, formerly known as Twitter, the Wrap was the first to report. The union’s post included a link to a labor movement petition calling for the return of hostages taken by Hamas, for President Joe Biden to immediately call for a ceasefire, and for “the basic rights of people” in Gaza to be restored.

    China's Communist Party is at this moment putting in place the infrastructure in America to attack America. [I]n Reedley, California, near Fresno, authorities found a secret Chinese biological weapons lab with at least 20 pathogens, including the one for Ebola, and almost a thousand mice that had been genetically engineered to spread disease. Chinese agents, in addition to hobbling Americans with disease and gunning them down, could bomb power stations, attack military bases, start wildfires, poison reservoirs, or create terror in dozens of ways. These tactics come straight out of Unrestricted Warfare, a 1999 book written by two Chinese air...

    Hunter Biden’s lawyer hilariously claimed that their client took photographs of sawdust lines on a table, which was not cocaine, according to a recent filing. Biden’s attorneys Attorneys Abbe Lowell, Christopher Man, and Bartholomew Dalton, claimed in Tuesday’s filing that federal prosecutors submitted false evidence to their client when they cited the photo as evidence that Hunter was actively taking drugs when he purchased a firearm in 2018. Biden’s attorneys wrote in the brief obtained by the Daily Caller: “The prosecution is flat out wrong—both that Mr. Biden ‘took’ this photograph and in claiming that it depicts ‘cocaine.'” “Multiple sources...

    Administrative staff grew by 12 percent while enrollment barely budged The University of Florida employs one administrator for every four undergrad students, according to an analysis by The College Fix. The Fix analyzed data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System and found the public university in Gainesville added 1,000 new administrator jobs in the past 10 years. In the 2022-23 school year, the university employed 7,376 administrators, or 250 per 1,000 undergraduate students, a 12 percent increase from a decade prior. By comparison, the university’s enrollment grew by just three percent during the same time period. The University of...

    MSNBC contributor Claire McCaskill said Thursday on “Morning Joe” that The New York Times was “ridiculous” for a story headlined “Fact-Checking Biden’s Recent Economic Talking Points,” which pointed out some of the president’s comments were misleading. McCaskill said, “If you travel around the world, which I’m fortunate enough to have a chance to do several times a year, you know what the rest of the world sees right now? They see America with the strongest economy. They see America with the most advanced technology. America’s universities still the brightest light on the horizon in terms of academics and research. They...

    It has been clear for quite some time that the Biden regime, despite its show of support for Israel, is really on the side of Hamas. Now the regime is in serious talks to respond to Hamas’ brutal and inhuman murder of 1,200 Israelis on Oct. 7, 2023 by giving it the biggest reward of all: a Palestinian state.If you are skeptical that Old Joe and his henchmen are really on Hamas’ side, consider the fact that, in November, they enabled the release of ten billion dollars in frozen funds to the Islamic Republic of Iran, Hamas’ primary financier. That...

    No sooner had Martin Griffiths, the UN’s Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, declared that Hamas was not a terrorist group than it came it light that at least 30 UNRWA employees actively participated in Hamas’ Oct. 7 jihad massacre of 1,200 Israelis. So now we see: of course Hamas isn’t a terror group. It’s a UN agency.The Jerusalem Post reported Thursday that Griffiths said: “Hamas is not a terrorist group for us, as you know, it is a political movement.” Yeah, sure, that’s it: Hamas is a political movement that engages from time to time in mass...

    United States citizens and other foreign nationals can now join Ukraine's national guard, the country's president, Volodymyr Zelensky, has said, as Kyiv hopes to maintain its forces heading over the threshold of two years of war against Russia. "Foreigners and stateless persons" can join the Ukrainian national guard as of Wednesday, the Ukrainian leader said in a statement published by the presidential office. Foreign fighters have been present in Ukraine's ranks since the start of Russia's full-scale invasion in February 2022 but often volunteered as part of the International Legion.
  • The Nitwits on Campuses Who Want an End to Israel-Do they know - or care - how they would fare under Islamic Law?

    These campus nitwits and stormtroopers in posse endlessly chant their dislike — no, their hatred — for the tiny Jewish state, and their hope for its disappearance, with its Jewish population expelled or killed, so that it may be replaced by a twenty-third Arab state “from the river to the sea.” On the other hand, they find the terror group Hamas, “the resistance” that showed its mettle on October 7, thoroughly admirable.Here are a few snapshots of the latest demonstrations, which on some campuses are now a monthly or even a weekly affair.At Stanford, you can see the “Sit-In To...

    American Thinker ^ | 02/22/2024 | Andrea Widburg
    The current debate in American politics is a sad one. It’s called “Your candidate is more senile than mine.” However, much as leftists (plus Nikki Haley) try to say that Donald Trump shows the same cognitive decline as Joe Biden, anyone can see that this isn’t true. Trump is the same as he ever was; Joe Biden is being held together by duct tape (or, in his case, carefully edited videotape). When it comes to Donald Trump, what you see is what you get…and what you’ve always gotten. He is the modern equivalent of Oliver Cromwell’s instruction to Sir Peter...

    FIRST ON FOX: A bicameral coalition of more than 130 Republican lawmakers penned a letter to the White House on Thursday, urging it to withdraw proposed tailpipe emissions regulations, forcing a transition to electric vehicles (EV). The Republicans — led by Rep. Randy Feenstra, R-Iowa, and Sen. Mike Crapo, R-Idaho — argued that the regulations issued by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are a "de facto EV mandate" phaseout of traditional internal combustion engine vehicles. They addressed the letter to President Biden and Shalanda Young, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, which is expected to soon finalize...

    President Biden told Democratic donors in California late Wednesday that he “served with real racists” during his decades in the US Senate — but Republicans in the 118th Congress “are worse.” “I’ve been a senator since ‘72. I’ve served with real racists. I’ve served with Strom Thurmond,” Biden said at an event in San Francisco, referring to the late segregationist senator from South Carolina. “I’ve served with all these guys that have set terrible records on race. But guess what? These guys [serving Republicans] are worse. These guys do not believe in basic democratic principles.”

    SINGAPORE, Feb 21 (Reuters) – The use of anti-ship ballistic missiles (ASBMs) in the Red Sea has spurred interest in Asia about the systems used to shoot them down, experts and industry officials say – although China, with its huge ASBM arsenal, presents a tougher challenge. U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) media releases from Nov. 27 – the world’s first documented use of an ASBM in combat – to Feb. 20 mention a total of 48 ASBMs and 12 interceptions in the Red Sea. Those releases noted that many ASBMs fired by the Iran-aligned Yemeni Houthis posed no danger and were...
