Episode 897 – Poor Guy is Losing the Culture!

Joe Biden continues to try to buy off voters.

Meanwhile, he has taken a major hit from the culture.

And a study proves mutilation in the name of gender ideology will lead to bad results. Like…no one knew this already.

Dumbass of the Day

What a Shock

According to the New York Post:

The Biden administration announced Tuesday that it will sell off 1 million barrels of gasoline held in case of emergencies — with the Energy Department explicitly citing an interest in keeping gas prices low over the summer driving season ahead of the November election.

We are between 30-40% of our reserve. When Biden took the White House, we were at 120%.

The fuel will be released from the Northeast Gasoline Supply Reserve, a component of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve that was established in 2014 after Superstorm Sandy disrupted gasoline supplies in the New York City area.

“The Biden-Harris Administration is laser-focused on lowering prices at the pump for American families, especially as drivers hit the road for summer driving season,” Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said in a statement.

“By strategically releasing this reserve in between Memorial Day and July 4th, we are ensuring sufficient supply flows to the tri-state and northeast at a time hardworking Americans need it the most.” 

Critics including congressional Republicans slammed Biden’s move as an attempt to buy votes — after making similar allegations about Biden’s attempt to forgive hundreds of billions of dollars in federally owned student loan debt in the runup to the election.

I said the way that Biden was going to win was to be more moderate. He would fake it until he won, then go back to being a communist.

I forgot two other things:

  • Pander like a little bitch.
  • Pay people off.

So far, moderation is losing.

This Could Be The End

According to the New York Post:

Rapper Cardi B revealed during a recent interview that she doesn’t plan to endorse President Biden or the presumptive GOP nominee, Donald Trump, in 2024 because she feels people were “betrayed.” 

This is nothing new with her. She is voting Trump but wants to keep her career. She has bitched about Biden for the last three years.

The rapper said that while she still believes Trump to be a threat, she’s felt “layers of disappointment” under Biden, citing the high cost of living and a lack of action, which has caused her to reconsider voting in the 2024 presidential election at all. 

“I feel like people got betrayed,” she told Rolling Stone Magazine. Cardi B interviewed Biden ahead of the 2020 election and ended up endorsing him for president, after previously endorsing Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

She’s interviewing with Rolling Stone on a serious subject. She’s mot a serious person. But we knew that.

The policies of Joe Biden are Bernie Sanders policies.

“It’s just like, damn, y’all not caring about nobody,” she said. “Then, it really gets me upset that there is solutions to it. There is a solution. I know there’s a solution because you’re spending billions of dollars on any f—— thing.”

‘What the f— is going on?” she asked at the time. “Lettuce was like $2 a couple months ago and now it’s like f—ing $7, of course I’m [going to] say something. The f—?”

The rapper also told Rolling Stone that she didn’t support funding Ukraine or Israel in their efforts against Russia and Hamas.

I’m not trusting Cardi B. with foreign policy. I’m pretty sure she doesn’t get it.

“[America] don’t pay for endless wars for countries that have been going through s— for a very long time,” she said. “There’s countries [where] kids are getting killed every single day, but because the [U.S.] won’t benefit from that country, they won’t help. I don’t like that America has this superhero cape on. We never did things to be superheroes. We did things for our own convenience.”

I know Cardi B. is kind of a has-been and really stupid, but this is going to hurt Biden.

That’s Bad News for Their Ideology

According to the Daily Wire:

A study published last month shows that those who underwent gender surgery had a suicide risk 12 times higher than those who did not, adding more data showing the dangers of the life-altering procedures.

The only thing that surprises me is that it is only 12 times higher. I would have thought it was much higher since affirming a sickness usually doesn’t heal the sickness.

The study utilized patient data from 56 health care organizations in the U.S. and over 90 million patients. Four different groups of patients were looked at in the study, including 1,501 people aged 18-60 who had “gender-affirming surgery” and an emergency visit (cohort A) and 15,608,363 adults who visited the emergency room but had no “gender-affirming surgery” (cohort B). The third group (cohort C) included 142,093 “adults with emergency visits, tubal ligation or vasectomy, but no gender-affirming surgery,” while a fourth group of patients with pharyngitis (cohort D) was studied “to validate the results from cohort C.”

This is a pretty heavy study with a lot of subjects and carefully planned.

“Data from February 4, 2003, to February 4, 2023, were analyzed to examine suicide attempts, death, self-harm, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) within five years of the index event,” the study said, adding that its results found that “Individuals who underwent gender-affirming surgery had a 12.12-fold higher suicide attempt risk than those who did not.”

The study concluded, “Gender-affirming surgery is significantly associated with elevated suicide attempt risks, underlining the necessity for comprehensive post-procedure psychiatric support.”

The study’s findings fly in the face of the argument from those espousing radical gender theory, including the Biden administration, who claim that “gender-affirming care” prevents suicide attempts among those who identify as transgender.

Needless to say, this study will be ignored and considered transphobic.

Episode 896 – Goodbye and Good Riddance!

A tragedy in Iran in a beautiful thing for the rest of mankind.

Joe Biden goes back to the pandering well to raise his poll numbers.

And what the F is wrong with our government? Well, it’s our fault. Let’s talk about it.

Some News!

Here is some news:

  • Iran’s controversial President Ebrahim Raisi, Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and other officials were confirmed dead on Monday after their helicopter crashed in a mountainous region of the country’s northwest, Iranian state media reported.
    • The death of Raisi, nicknamed the “Butcher of Tehran” for his oversight of mass executions of political prisoners in 1988, forced Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to install interim leadership for Iran’s executive branch. An Israeli official denied to Reuters the country had any involvement in the deadly crash, saying, bluntly, “it wasn’t us.”
  • The ICC on Monday requested arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant for allegedly committing war crimes in Gaza. The court also requested warrants for Hamas’ top leader Yahya Sinwar, top political leader Ismail Haniyeh, and military commander Mohammed Dief.
  • Federal Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk said that the Biden administration could not implement a policy against Texas or members of multiple gun rights groups that require individuals who “earn a profit” selling guns to conduct background checks and have a federal firearms license no matter where or how they sell their merchandise.
    • Republicans have argued that the regulations infringe on Second Amendment rights and would make it a felony for family members and friends to sell guns to each other without conducting background checks or having a federal license. 
  • Donald Trump’s trial in over and it has turned into a disaster for the prosecution.

Watch Out! A Pander Bear!

Other things that happened:

  • He applauded when the valavictorian said there needs to be a permanent and unconditional cease fire between Israel and Hamas. He probably wasn’t listening.
  • He brought up the fake election controversy in Georgia, reviving a misleading claim that voters are banned from receiving food and water while in line at polling places.
  • A smattering of Morehouse students and faculty protested Biden’s speech by turning their backs on him for the duration of the speech. They did this because of the Israel/Hamas war.

Episode 894 – Better Late Than Never, I Guess!

More bad news for Biden on the economy. That soft landing he keeps talking about is not going to happen.

The fact checkers got something right. It only took five years. I wonder why?

And the government is after the kids.

It Ain’t Getting Better

According to Fox Business:

Inflation eased slightly in April for the first time in months, a welcome sign for the Federal Reserve even as prices remained uncomfortably high for millions of Americans.

The Labor Department said Wednesday that the consumer price index, a broad measure of how much everyday goods like gasoline, groceries and rent cost, rose 0.3% in April from the previous month. Economists expected to see a 0.4% monthly increase. Prices climbed 3.4% from the same time last year, down from the 3.5% reading in March.

Another data point that measures underlying inflationary pressures within the economy also moderated last month. So-called core prices, which exclude the more volatile measurements of gasoline and food in order to better assess price growth trends, increased 0.3% in April. From the same time last year, the gauge climbed 3.6% — the lowest reading since 2021.

Altogether, the report indicates that while inflation has fallen considerably from a peak of 9.1%, it remains well above the Fed’s 2% target.

High inflation has created severe financial pressures for most U.S. households, which are forced to pay more for everyday necessities like food and rent. Price hikes are particularly devastating for lower-income Americans, because they tend to spend more of their already-stretched paycheck on necessities and therefore have less flexibility to save money.

But They Told Us It Was False

According to Yahoo News, the fact-checking websites Snopes has decided to come clean and say that Ashley Biden’s diary, collected by Project Veritas, is true after saying for years that it was not real.

Let’s go over this:

  • The diary was found in 2020, just before the election. Just like Hunter’s laptop.
  • The diary was found in a hotel room, abandoned.
  • Someone found it and turned it over to Project Veritas.
  • In the diary, she said she was molested and said her father, Joe, used to shower with her.
  • The diary was instantly said to be fake.
    • The FBI investigated it.
    • There are recordings of Ashley Biden contacting the hotel to get the diary back.
    • Someone was arrested for stealing the diary.
  • The diary was handwritten in Ashley’s hand.

The question I have is why now? The diary has been out for five years. For some reason, not many people are paying attention to this, which is weird.

We have a president that has taken money from all the enemies of the United States and is a possible child molester, but no one in the media seems interested. Oh. yeah, I forgot. He has also been accused of rape and he has dismissed an illegitimate granddaughter from his son Hunter.

They Are After the Kids

According to the Daily Wire:

The Biden administration appears to be repurposing a federal program aimed at helping kids in the foster care system transition to adulthood, instead using the taxpayer dollars to fund efforts by children to transition into the opposite sex.

Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) says federal taxpayer dollars can be spent towards buying “personal items” that support “a youth’s expression of their gender identity,” which typically refer to accessories such as chest binders and so-called packers, which are prosthetic penises used by girls who want it to appear like they have male genitals.

document from the Children’s Bureau, a federal agency which operates under the authority of HHS, reveals that federal funds can now be used by child welfare agencies to “support the provision of services, interventions, and supports to LGBTQIA2S+ children.” The document, titled “Federal Funding to Support Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual, Two-Spirit, Plus (LGBTQIA2S+) Children, Youth, Young Adults, and Families,” explains that child welfare funds can now be used to encourage children to attempt to change their sex.

“[John H. Chafee Foster Care Program for Successful Transition to Adulthood] funding may be used in a number of ways to support LGBTQIA2S+ youth and allow them to participate in positive, affirming, age-appropriate activities,” the document states in reference to a foster care funding system. “For example, Chafee funds may be used to purchase personal items related to supporting a youth’s expression of their gender identity and/or sexual orientation.”

Sounds like a really good use of money.

I Thought This Wasn’t Happening

According to Off the Press:

Ohio Republican Secretary of State Frank LaRose ordered the Midwest state’s voter rolls to be purged Tuesday after finding that 137 people were registered to vote in the upcoming election despite not being U.S. citizens, Fox News reported.

The Ohio Public Integrity Division looked into data from the state’s Bureau of Motor Vehicles and found 137 non-citizens on the voter rolls even though they had twice confirmed they were not U.S. citizens. Ohio, which was won by former President Donald Trump in 2016 and 2020, “leans Trump” for the 2024 election, according to RealClearPolitics.

To help the state remove non-citizens from its voter rolls, LaRose’s office has also requested information on citizenship data from President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration, along with federal district court records, which show who has been disqualified from jury duty due to not being a U.S. citizen.

“These individuals will receive at least two written notices from the Secretary of State’s office asking them to confirm their citizenship status or cancel their registration. Failure to respond to these notices will result in removal of the registration from the voter rolls by the county boards of elections,” LaRose told Fox News.

“It’s important to recognize that some of these registrations may be the result of an honest mistake,” LaRose added. “These may be well-meaning people trying to pursue the American dream, and communication barriers sometimes result in a registration form being submitted in error. We need to help them get that cleared up before an accidental registration becomes an illegal vote that could result in a felony conviction or even deportation.”

We need to start searching for corruption now. We can’t wait until the day after the election to point out corruption.

We also need to come up with a Constitutional amendment that purges voter roles every four years.

F-ing Disney!

According to AL.com

One of the Walt Disney Co.’s most iconic characters has been removed from Walt Disney World park meet and greets with the public, reportedly because the character was flagged as “potentially problematic” by a Disney committee.

Disney confirmed in February that Tinker Bell, a Disney icon since making her first appearance in 1953′s “Peter Pan,” had been removed from the park’s meet and greet rotation, but could still be seen flying over the park at the conclusion of the nighttime fireworks show, as well as in park parades.

In addition to park appearances, Tinker Bell has been a company mascot, featured in the opening sequence of scores of Disney movies and television shows for decades, flying towards the screen and sprinkling it with her famous pixie dust.

Meet and greets within Disney parks were discontinued during the COVID-19 pandemic, but when they returned, Tinker Bell did not. Now, the signage at the Magic Kingdom’s Town Square Theatre where guests could once meet the blonde fairy has been removed, replaced by signage for Mickey Mouse, according to Inside the Magic.

While confirming the character’s absence from Magic Kingdom meet and greets, Disney did not indicate a reason for the change. However, a 2022 report by the New York Times said Disney’s “Stories Matter” team — launched to “ensure (our content) accurately represents our global audiences” — had indicated the Tinker Bell character was “potentially problematic.”

The team found the Tinker Bell character to be both “body conscious” and “jealous of Peter Pan’s attention.” But meet and greets with the character are still available at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, suggesting the Stories Matter findings may not have played a factor in the decision to end the character’s meet and greets at Walt Disney World.

The Stories Matter team also flagged Peter Pan for its negative portrayal of Native people and the use of “redskins” in the film.

Episode 893 – Too Little, Too Late!

Joe Biden decides to dance the Trump Trot.

Not only should we be fire all these college administrators, we should deport them and take away their citizenship. I have a story that will boil your blood.

And the film industry wants to do more of what they are already doing. I guess they don’t want anyone going to their movies. Let’s talk about it.

Expect More of This

According to the Daily Wire:

President Joe Biden is set to increase tariffs on multiple Chinese imports, including electric vehicles, battery components, semiconductors, microchips, and steel and aluminum.

The tariff rates will hit electric vehicles, solar components, and semiconductors from China the hardest with an increase from 25% to 50%, while tariffs on other sectors will increase to 25%, USA Today reported. The new tariffs on China, which will be announced by Biden at the White House on Tuesday, will be implemented over the next two years and are estimated to affect around $18 billion in Chinese imports. During his speech, Biden will also officially endorse keeping tariffs implemented by former President Donald Trump on more than $300 billion of Chinese goods, The New York Times reported.

Biden’s increase in tariffs on China comes after the president spent months campaigning against former President Donald Trump’s tariffs on the communist country. The then-Democratic presidential candidate blasted Trump multiple times in 2019 for his tariffs on Chinese imports, calling Trump’s policies “senseless” and arguing that, in the end, Americans would end up “foot[ing] the bill.”

Too little, too late. He needs to raise tariffs on everyone dealing with China, including Mexico. Mexico imports a lot of Chinese crap, including fentanyl, and it goes on the tariff radar.

He’s doing more to show he’s moderate.

But there’s more:

  • Biden has agreed to debate Trump with CNN moderating on June 27th. We will see if that happens.
  • Biden has continued to send offensive weapons to Israel.

Be prepared for Joe Biden to moderate now. Expect him to shutdown the border and open up oil leases. He will moderate on all his policies. But don’t buy into his crap. He’s going to go back on all that if he wins the election.

Kick Them Out of the Country

According to the Daily Wire:

When Daily Wire host Michael Knowles spoke last month at the University of Utah, he was met with a host of leftist protesters and university-approved transgender flags filling the building he was speaking in — a demonstration that was in part supported by the school faculty. 

The protest took place as Knowles, who had been brought to campus by the Young America’s Foundation, gave a speech on the problems with transgender ideology on April 8 at the university. At the same time, Philip Osteen, the dean of Utah’s College of Social Work, reportedly extended the school’s Pride celebration so that it coincided with Knowles’ speech and approved for transgender and LGBT flags and banners to fill the building Knowles was set to speak in. 

Osteen, the dean of the building where Knowles spoke, approved the trans flag demonstration, but said he couldn’t give the go-ahead for students to put up American flags when pressed by YAF representative Breana Marsh. 

“I think it’s a gross misuse to say that we’re going to make a safe place, we’re going to make students feel represented and protected, and everyone feels safe, at the absolute hanging of your conservative students,” Marsh said in audio shared by YAF with The Daily Wire. 

Osteen said she should bring her concerns to the dean of students, saying that YAF could put up American flags in the room where Knowles was speaking but “not in the decoration of this building.”

He then said that if YAF got approval from facilities and the dean of students that they could put up American flags. When asked why he could approve Pride flags, but not the American flag, he said “because I approved these to go up as a celebration of our pride.”

More?

According to Yahoo Entertainment:

In an open letter released Tuesday, a group of actors, filmmakers and activists called on Hollywood studios to produce more stories and projects that prioritize social impact following the closure of Participant Media.

The letter was organized by The National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA), the nonprofit advocacy group that worked with Participant and director Alfonso Cuaron on a campaign to increase the visibility of domestic labor tied to Cuaron’s film “Roma” in 2018.

Signees include George Clooney, Ava Duvernay, Regina King, Kerry Washington, Michael Keaton, Diego Luna, Jane Fonda along with organizations like ACLU, GLAAD, and more.

“Participant’s model of filmmaking and partnerships showed us the power of storytelling to open our hearts and inspire action in times of change and uncertainty. ” National Domestic Workers Alliance President Ai-jen Poo said in a statement provided to TheWrap. “The open letter is a re-commitment to this work, and an invitation to others to join us in harnessing the power of art to change the world.”

Read the full letter:

Friends of Filmmaking and Impact20 years ago, long before social impact had a place in Hollywood, Participant launched stories into our culture with the explicit goal of changing it. Participant empowered bold storytelling with their faith in the vision of filmmakers, trust in advocates and social movements to utilize those narratives in dynamic campaigns, and most importantly, they never underestimated the public’s appetite for thought provoking subject matter that could power new narratives and offer fresh perspectives.

As artists inspired by and connected to social movements, we have experienced the unique role Participant has played in empowering filmmakers to experiment, innovate, and grow. As advocates, we have seen the real world change sparked by the power of filmmaking and campaigning. Participant, through its model of impact filmmaking combined with forging authentic partnerships between advocates, storytellers and distributors has forever changed the landscape of our public conversation and popular culture. For that we are filled with gratitude and pride in our collaborations with this groundbreaking entertainment institution.

Participant proved that audiences crave films with purpose, having collected 21 Academy Awards out of 86 nominations, and 18 Emmy nominations across five television series. Alongside critical acclaim, its catalog including “Spotlight,” “Roma,” “An Inconvenient Truth,” “A Fantastic Woman,” and “When They See Us,” grossed over $3.3 billion at the worldwide box office. The mission was to achieve the “double bottom line,” creating world-class content that inspired social change, which it did.

As we say goodbye to Participant, we must underscore that values-based storytelling is needed now more than ever; to expand the room for debate, to open our hearts to experiences vastly different from our own, to immerse us in the beauty of humanity’s complexities. And in the face of unprecedented change and uncertainty, we need deep partnerships between great storytellers, advocates and movements for change now more than ever, to remind us of our agency in shaping the future and the power of our actions. The future and health of our culture and democracy requires more of us to participate, spread hope, and humanity. Democracy is a living, breathing being that we, as participants, give life.

As we reflect on the accomplishments of Participant, we look forward to championing the next generation of producers that will build upon Participant’s extraordinary body of work, integrating learnings it has offered, seeding new partnerships and innovating within this new media landscape. We call upon Hollywood to meet the moment. There is a whole ecosystem of people, connected by the work of the last 20 years of Participant, ready to work with you.

This is Dumb

According to CNN:

The San Francisco Police Department will stop releasing most booking photos, or mug shots, to avoid perpetuating racial bias, San Francisco police Chief Bill Scott announced Wednesday.

“With a thoughtful process for releasing booking photos, law enforcement agencies may help mitigate or avoid perpetuating negative stereotypes which can contribute to implicit and explicit bias in policing and by community members,” Scott announced in a notice to the department.

The SFPD will continue releasing mug shots when “necessary to warn the public of imminent danger or to enlist the public’s assistance in locating individuals, including at-risk persons,” the department said in a news release about the policy change, but those will be the only exceptions to the new rule.

“This policy emerges from compelling research suggesting that the widespread publication of police booking photos in the news and on social media creates an illusory correlation for viewers that fosters racial bias and vastly overstates the propensity of black and brown men to engage in criminal behavior,” Scott said in the news release.

This is on Purpose

According to the Washington Examiner:

San Francisco is getting hammered for spending millions of dollars on a program that gives free booze to homeless alcoholics, but researchers are insisting the multimillion-dollar strategy has merit. 

Keanan Joyner, a professor and researcher in the Clinical Research on Externalizing and Addiction Mechanisms Lab at the University of California, Berkeley, called San Francisco’s Managed Alcohol Program, or MAP, “a very positive thing.”

“The science is very clear at this point that harm reduction as a general strategy for treating alcohol and other drug use disorders is very effective,” he said on Monday. 

MAP was started four years ago as a way to care for unhoused people who drank excessively and ended up in emergency rooms, jails, or, in some cases, the morgue. 

It made headlines recently after Adam Nathan, the founder of AI marketing company Blaze and chairman of the Salvation Army San Francisco Metro Advisory Board, slammed the program for giving out free beer.

“It’s set up so people in the program just walk in and grab a beer, and then another one. All day,” he posted on X.

His comments were followed by tech executive Garry Tan, who called MAP “harm acceleration.”

The program, which is run out of an old hotel in the city’s Tenderloin district, provides housing, three meals a day, and a nurse who administers alcohol, usually vodka or beer, to keep users at a “safe level of intoxication.” The goal isn’t to stop alcohol use but to keep it at a level that increases users’ safety and overall quality of life.

Episode 892 – High-ho, High-ho! Off to Court We Go!

The View continues show show it is the epitome of obtuseness.

Joe Biden continues to coddle and protect evil and screwing our allies.

And high-ho, high-ho, it’s off to court we go.

Dumbass of the Day

Just Brilliant!

Evil!

According to the New York Post:

The Biden administration has reportedly offered Israel “sensitive intelligence” to help root out Hamas leaders — prompting critics to claim this shows the White House withheld the crucial data to use as leverage.

The administration Monday adamantly denied the accusation that it held back intelligence from Israel during the allies’ public feud over how the Jewish state should proceed in the southern Gaza city of Rafah.

The Washington Post reported over the weekend that the White House has been offering Israel the key intelligence over the past several weeks as the administration seeks to avoid a full-blown Rafah invasion, with the outlet citing four sources.

The US is dangling the offer to show Israel does not need to unleash its full military wrath on the civilian-packed, war-torn Palestinian region to nail leaders of the terror group, the sources said.

The outlet noted that the administration has sent Israel intelligence throughout the war but is seeking to make the case that with more sensitive US information on the Hamas leadership’s whereabouts, its ally can conduct a highly targeted operation rather than a full-scale incursion.

Numerous critics on the right lashed out at the administration after the report surfaced, fearing the US was suppressing critical intel during the devastating Israel-Hamas war.

This IS How We Win

According to the New York Post:

Christian McGhee, who received a three-day suspension for using the phrase last month at Central Davidson High School in Lexington, has accused the school of violating his First Amendment rights in the lawsuit filed in federal court Tuesday.

“Aside from the obvious fact that his words had nothing to do with race, his speech was protected under the First Amendment: he asked his teacher a question that was factual and nonthreatening, and officials could not have reasonably forecast that his question would cause substantial School disruption,” the suit said.

“Nor did his question actually cause substantial School disruption.”

According to the lawsuit, the incident occurred on April 9 when a teacher gave Christian an assignment that used the word “alien,” and he asked, “Like space aliens or illegal aliens without green cards?”

A Hispanic student in Christian’s class reportedly “joked” that he was going to “kick Christian’s a–,” so the teacher took the matter to the assistant principal, per the suit.

Eventually, his words were deemed to be offensive and disrespectful to his classmates, so he was suspended.

This Is Why We Need to Win

According to the Daily Wire:

On Monday, Tennessee Attorney General Jonathan Skrmetti led a coalition of 18 states in filing a lawsuit against the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) after it released new sexual harassment guidance extending Title VII’s protections against sex-based discrimination to cover gender identity.

On April 29, the EEOC released its new guidance, which insists an employer may be liable under Title VII if they or another employee use a name or pronoun inconsistent with an employee’s preferred gender identity. Not only that, but an employer can be liable by limiting access to a bathroom or other sex-segregated facility, such as a shower or locker room, based on biological sex and not on gender identity. If a customer or other non-employee fails to use an employee’s preferred pronouns or refuses to share a restroom with someone of the opposite sex, the employer could also be sued.

“In America, the Constitution gives the power to make laws to the people’s elected representatives, not to unaccountable commissioners, and this EEOC guidance is an attack on our constitutional separation of powers,” Skrmetti said. “When, as here, a federal agency engages in government over the people instead of government by the people, it undermines the legitimacy of our laws and alienates Americans from our legal system. This end-run around our constitutional institutions misuses federal power to eliminate women’s private spaces and punish the use of biologically-accurate pronouns, all at the expense of Tennessee employers.”

On January 20, 2021, the day President Biden was inaugurated, he signed an “Executive Order on Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation.” That order declared that “laws that prohibit sex discrimination…prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation.” Biden directed federal agencies to “fully implement statutes that prohibit sex discrimination” consistent with the administration’s interpretation.

In response to the executive order, Biden’s Department of Education and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued guidance documents providing their interpretations of Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

On June 15, 2021, the EEOC issued a “Technical Assistance Document” which purported to explain employers’ obligations with respect to dress codes, bathrooms, locker rooms, showers, and use of preferred pronouns or names.

On June 23, 2021, the Department of Education issued a “Dear Educator” letter to directly notify those subject to Title IX of the Department’s Interpretation. The “Dear Educator” letter reiterated that “Title IX’s protection against sex discrimination encompasses discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity” and explained that the Department “will fully enforce Title IX to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.”

On August 30, 2021, the state of Tennessee led a coalition of states and filed a complaint challenging the legality of the guidance documents issued by the Department and the EEOC in response to Biden’s executive order.  In 2022, the United States District Court Eastern District of Tennessee granted the injunction.

Episode 891 – Can They Invade Now?

Hamas continues to give Israel, and the world, reasons why Israel should turn Gaza into a parking lot.

It is beginning to look like going broke is a quest for Disney.

And I have another reason not to send your kids to college.

It’s Time. Seriously.

According to Fox News:

After President Biden gave his ultimatum of withholding offensive weapons to the Jewish state if Israel were to launch an invasion of Rafah, rocket attacks rained down on Israel on Friday from Rafah, with more rockets fired on Saturday.

Hamas launched rockets from Rafah at the southern Israeli city of Beersheva on Friday for the first time since December, as Iranian proxy Hezbollah sent a barrage of rockets into the northern Israel city of Kiryat Shmona, causing a massive fire. Within the Gaza Strip on Friday, four Israeli soldiers were killed.

“When administration officials attacked or berated Israel publicly previously during the war, Hamas hardened its demands in return for releasing hostages, in fact delaying and minimizing the chances of success of the delicate negotiation,” Jonathan Conricus told Fox News Digital. Conricus served in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) for 24 years as a combat commander in Lebanon and the Gaza Strip.

They Want to Go Broke

According to the Daily Wire:

The new Disney+ Star Wars animated series “Tales of the Empire” just introduced a nonbinary character.

Libs of TikTok shared the clip in question on X. “New Star Wars show on Disney+ ‘Tales of the Empire’ features a non-binary character that uses they/them pronouns,” the caption says. “Parents, make sure you know what your kids are watching! They’re after your kids.”

The article continues:

The “Star Wars” franchise has dabbled in radical left-wing gender theory before. Director J.J. Abrams bragged in 2019 that the film “Rise of Skywalker” would include a kiss between two women.

In the case of the LGBTQ community, it was important to me that people who go to see this movie feel that they’re being represented in the film,” Abrams told Variety at the time. “I will say I’m giving away nothing about what happens in the movie. But I did just say what I just said.”

In reality, the quick kiss accounted for less than one second of screen time.

Disney also added two “trans and non-binary” Jedi Knights on the cover for Marvel’s “Star Wars: The High Republic” comic series in 2021.

In honor of #TransDayofVisibility we’re proud to unveil and exclusive cover highlighting Terec and Ceret, trans non-binary Jedi, currently featured in Marvel’s The High Republic comic,” the official Star Wars Instagram account wrote in its image caption. “We support trans lives and we are passionate and committed to broadening our representation in a galaxy far far [a]way.”

Episode 890 – Why Wasn’t This a Law Before?

The House of Representatives passes a law that has been passed dozens of times before but has never been passed. It’s one that makes way too much sense to get through the Senate.

Is the governor of New York a racist or just stupid? Probably a little of both.

And The Boy Scouts has gone woke. Let’s see how this works out for them.

News

Here is some news:

  • President Joe Biden threatened to cut Israel off this week from receiving U.S. military weapons if they enter Rafah to finish off Hamas’ last stronghold inside Gaza.
    • This decision was made last week but was delayed because he had to speak Holocaust remembrance speech.
    • By the way, Hamas is firing missiles from Rafah at Israel. Eight Missiles were fired from the hub of civilian aid in Rafah.
    • Finally, this aid was passed into law by Congress. Isn’t this illegal? Well, yeah. There are calls for impeachment since he’s doing the same thing Trump did with Ukraine aid in 2018.
  • On Wednesday, the GOP-led House quickly defeated a bid by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) to remove Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) from his top perch.
    • Within an hour of Greene declaring that she was going through with her motion to vacate the chair — an announcement met by a wave of boos in the chamber — members overwhelmingly voted to table the measure by a 359-43 tally.

Why Wasn’t This a Law Before?

According to the New York Post:

The House of Representatives voted to add a citizenship question to the census and block illegal immigrants from skewing the redistricting and Electoral College apportionment processes.

In a 206 to 202 vote, the lower chamber passed the Equal Representation Act Wednesday along party lines, but the measure is expected to be dead on arrival in the Senate.

“Including the count of non-US citizens in determining how many congressional seats and electoral votes each state has is skewing the representation of Americans in their federal government,” Rep. Chuck Edwards (R-Ill.) said in a statement.

Edwards introduced the bill back in January and attached well over 100 co-sponsors.

Underpinning the legislation is the fact that every decade, following the census, states revisit their congressional maps and either lose or gain seats based on population changes.

The last decennial apportionment process largely wrapped up ahead of the 2022 midterm election cycle, with a handful of lingering redistricting court battles still pending.

“The mere presence of illegal immigrants in the U.S. is influencing electoral outcomes, and the Equal Representation Act that the House passed would protect our democracy by making sure that American citizens – and American citizens only – have a say in determining the direction of our country,” Edwards added.

Bronx politicians ripped Gov. Kathy Hochul after she asserted that some black children in the borough don’t know what the word “computer” means.

Hochul, speaking at an on-stage forum in California Monday, stuck her foot in her mouth while trying to explain how she wants to create a diverse workforce in new areas like artificial intelligence.

This Will Solve Nothing

According to Fox News:

For the first time in its history, The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is set to change its name as it seeks to foster a more inclusive organization. 

The rebranding will go into effect on Feb. 8, 2025, the organization’s 115th anniversary, when it will become known as Scouting America.  

Officials say the name change aims to make everyone feel welcome, while the move is also being seen as an attempt to move on from bankruptcy following a flood of sexual abuse claims. Last year BSA agreed to pay $2.46 billion to settle claims by some 82,000 former Boy Scouts who said they had been sexually abused by BSA officials and volunteers.

The bankruptcy reorganization plan took effect last year, allowing the organization to keep operating.

Though our name will be new, our mission remains unchanged: we are committed to teaching young people to be prepared for life,” said Roger A. Krone, the president and chief executive officer of BSA. 

This will be a simple but very important evolution as we seek to ensure that everyone feels welcome in scouting.” 

The organization, which is steeped in tradition, has made seismic changes after decades of turmoil, from finally allowing gay youth to welcoming girls throughout its ranks. With an eye on increasing flagging membership numbers, the Irving, Texas-based organization announced the name change Tuesday at its annual meeting in Florida.

I Smell a Lawsuit

According to the New York Post:

An American Airlines flight from New York City to Guyana was returned to JFK Airport after a disruption in which a passenger called a crew member a “waiter.”

Flight 2557 was bound for Georgetown, Guyana, on July 18 when it turned back to the Big Apple due to the incident involving Joel Ghansham, Guyana’s Stabroek News said.

Ghansham told local outlet Demerara Waves Online News that it began when he asked a flight attendant for help putting his luggage in the overhead compartment because he recently underwent spine surgery.

​“He said, ‘No, I don’t do that.’ He said, ‘I don’t get paid that kind of money but if you don’t like it there is always another airline,’” Ghansham, who was seated in business class, told the outlet.

Another crew member then reportedly helped him with the luggage.

During the beverage service later, the initial crew member leaned back toward Ghansham.

He asked me if I wanted something to drink but I didn’t respond because I didn’t want to cause a scene, and he asked again and I said, ‘No thank you, waiter,’” he told Stabroek News, which described him as a “cultural activist.”

The crew member responded that he was not a waiter and that he had the power to turn the plane around, according to the outlet.

Ghansham claimed in a YouTube interview that he told the flight attendant: “You must be God, so you do it.”

Moments later, the pilot announced that the plane was returning to JFK Airport, where the passenger said he was removed from the flight and interviewed by authorities before being allowed to leave.

In an email to The Post, an American Airlines rep described Ghansham as a “disruptive passenger” who forced the flight to return to the city.

“Safety and security are our top priorities, and we thank our customers for their understanding and our team members for their professionalism in managing a difficult situation,” the spokesperson wrote.

I Told You They Were Going to Cheat

According to the Daily Wire:

President Joe Biden’s Small Business Administration (SBA) was subpoenaed by the House Committee on Small Business on Tuesday over alleged efforts to “register Democrat voters” in Michigan, a vital battleground state in the 2024 election.

House Republican leaders on the Small Business Committee said they issued two subpoenas for SBA officials after “they failed to comply with an investigation into potential electioneering activities” allegedly carried out by the agency. SBA Special Advisor Tyler Robinson and Chief of Staff Arthur Plews were subpoenaed after they didn’t appear for transcribed interviews with the committee, Fox News reported. The Biden administration officials are also accused of failing to hand over documents related to an alleged effort to divert “resources away from assisting Main Street so it can register Democrat voters.”

“The fact that we are having to issue subpoenas to speak with SBA officials is extremely disappointing,” said House Small Business Committee Chairman Roger Williams (R-TX) said it’s “unfortunate” that the subpoenas had to be issued, but added, “The American people deserve answers and transparency on the electioneering activities of the SBA and how they have or plan to insert themselves in the upcoming federal elections.”

“The SBA’s sole mission is to help Main Street thrive and grow, and they have repeatedly strayed from that mission to pursue outside political objectives,” Williams added. “It’s unfortunate that we have arrived at this point, but this Committee is determined to get answers on behalf of the American people.”

The House committee said it was the first time in history that it had subpoenaed the SBA, according to Fox News. Republicans on the Small Business Committee believe that a recent memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Michigan Department of State announced by the SBA could be unconstitutional.

The MOU was labeled a “first-of-its-kind collaboration” intended to “promote civic engagement and voter registration in Michigan.” The voter registration collaboration between the SBA and the Michigan state government is supposed to run through the end of 2035.

Can the Government Do Anything Right?

According to Fox News:

Officers from the New York Police Department went to two different universities on Friday morning to clear out anti-Israel agitators and break up demonstrations they held on campus.

Officers first cleared an encampment at New York University, where they arrested several protesters and called cleaning crews to the area to remove tents and sweep away the trash left behind by the protesters. The NYPD was then called to take similar actions at The New School in New York. After the operations, NYPD Chief of Patrol John Chell spoke to reporters to confirm the NYPD took the actions “at the request of school presidents” and ultimately arrested 56 people, with no incidents, between both schools.

NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Operations Kaz Daughtry also spoke to reporters, saying there is “somebody” or “some organization” behind the massive movement where students and other protesters are taking over schools and academic buildings, chanting antisemitic slogans, resisting law enforcement and administrators’ orders to disperse, and getting away with little to no consequences.

“I just want to say, and I said it before, there’s somebody behind this movement,” Daughtry said. “There is some organization behind this movement. The level of organization that we’re seeing in both of these schools and at Columbia.”

The deputy commissioner said officers found leaflets with “all the details” provided to the protesters.

“There are leaflets on how to protest leaflets or how to commit civil disobedience. There are leaflets on what to do when you get arrested, leaflets on what to say to police,” Daughtry explained.

He reiterated: “There is somebody funding this. There is somebody radicalizing our students.”

I Don’t Know What’s Worse

According to People Magazine:

A Massachusetts mother who was the owner of the Boston apartment where four babies were found in a freezer in November 2022 will not face criminal charges following an investigation, Suffolk District Attorney Kevin Hayden announced Tuesday, April 30.

In a press release, Hayden said he doesn’t believe a case against Alexis Aldamir, now 69, can be brought to trial due to several factors.

“This investigation, which is one of the most complex, unusual and perplexing that this office has ever encountered, is now complete. While we have some answers, there are many elements of this case that will likely never be answered,” Hayden stated.

“We will never know exactly where or when the four babies found in Alexis Aldamir’s apartment were born,” he added. “We will never know if the four babies were born alive, and we will never know exactly what happened to them. We will never know how Alexis Aldamir concealed her pregnancies, or why she chose to do so.”

On Nov. 17, 2022, police officers responded to a residence in South Boston after receiving a 911 call from Aldamir’s brother about a baby found in a freezer, authorities said. The caller explained that he and his wife made the discovery while cleaning out the apartment where his sister once lived.

That day, two male babies and two female babies, all of whom were siblings, were found “frozen solid,” authorities said. All were discovered in shoe boxes wrapped in tin foil and had their umbilical cords attached. The two females also had their placentas attached. 

The medical examiner reported that there was no scientific method to determine how long the babies — who were described as full term — had been frozen, according to the release.

“The autopsy found no signs of internal or external trauma and no evidence of obvious injuries,” the release states. “There were no signs of food, or milk, or formula inside the babies’ stomachs.”

Additionally, the medical examiner found the cause of death for all the babies to be “undetermined,” and said that they could not definitively determine whether the babies had been born alive.

Investigators later learned that Aldamir owned and occupied the apartment after moving with her family from Maryland to Amherst in 1971, when she was almost 17 years old, authorities said. Records show Aldamir purchased the South Boston apartment in October 1983, and likely started living in the apartment as early as April 1982, per the release.

Aldamir was tracked down to a residential healthcare facility and ordered by the court to provide a DNA sample, which revealed she was the mother of all four babies, according to the investigators.

Authorities said Aldamir worked for an accounting firm in Boston from March 1980 to October 2021. 

Her co-workers described her as “a heavy-set woman who had a penchant for wearing loose-fitting clothing regardless of the season,” the release states. “None of Aldamir’s co-workers knew her to be pregnant at any point.”

Additional DNA testing in June 2023 identified the likely father of the four babies as a man who died in 2011, according to the release. Investigators said he and Aldamir also shared a fifth child together that they placed for adoption. They added that Aldamir had given birth to a baby girl in 1982 but found no other birth records.

Authorities said that in late 2022, investigators visited the healthcare facility where Aldamir now lives and questioned her about the four babies found in her apartment. 

“Throughout the interview Aldamir appeared confused and demonstrated a lack of understanding about where she was and who she was speaking to,” the release states. “As a result, she was unable to provide investigators with any significant information.”

“To further assess Aldamir’s cognitive ability, investigators reviewed publicly available probate court records and spoke with a lawyer for Aldamir. The information obtained suggests strongly that Aldamir would be unlikely to stand trial,” the release adds.

Since investigators could not prove a crime had been committed, no charges will be filed.

“In this case, investigators cannot prove that the babies were ever alive and they have no cause or manner of death. Second, the autopsy found no signs of internal or external trauma to the babies and no evidence of obvious injuries. Third, as the father is now deceased, he cannot be charged with any crime.”

The Boston Police Department Homicide Unit and Crime Laboratory, the Massachusetts Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, Bode Technologies of Virginia (a DNA research firm) also assisted in the investigation led by the district attorney’s office.

Water is Bad, I Guess

According to the New York Post:

Call it perfume-ative hygiene.

Experts say the daily shower has no proven health benefit, dismissing the dousing as a socially accepted practice geared toward staving off accusations of funkiness — as A-listers like Jake Gyllenhaal and Mila Kunis admit they’ve been saying no to the nozzle.

“Why are we washing? Mostly because we’re afraid somebody else will tell us that we’re smelling,” environmentalist Donnachadh McCarthy told the BBC.

The “Prostitute State” author only hoses off once per month to help the environment — a lifestyle choice inspired by spending two weeks in the Amazon with the indigenous Yanomami people, he said.

Every other morning, McCarthy told a reporter, he opts instead for a wash at the sink, using a cloth to give his body a good scrub.

And while abstaining from daily showers might seem like antisocial behavior, medical experts are inclined to lean toward agreeing with earthy types like McCarthy, saying that the modern obsession with cleanliness can actually be hazardous to one’s health.

Manhattan dermatologist Dr. Julie Russak previously told The Post that prolonged and daily showers could strip away the “skin’s microbiome,” which plays a role in protecting the skin and is “also extremely important in overall health of the body.”

Chemist David Whitlock was so adamant about preserving this dermal barrier that the bathing abstainer didn’t shower for 12 years, instead opting to spray himself with good bacteria that he claims neutralizes the body’s smell-making chemicals.

When asked about addressing critics, he told Vice: “Tell anyone who mocks you that they are betraying profound ignorance of the skin microbiome, and then walk away.”

Episode 888 – Duped Again!

Your taxes will be going up next year. Yay!

Alvin Bragg is trying really hard to get his case against Donald Trump thrown out on appeal.

And the Biden administration and the media (but I repeat myself) gets duped again.

Some News

Here is some news:

  • A few of President Joe Biden’s fans got roasted on Monday after cheering reports of a ceasefire deal between Israel and the terror group Hamas — only to find out the deal was bogus. The media went to town.
    • Chris Jackson, a Democratic chairperson – “BREAKING Hamas has reportedly accepted a cease-fire. Looks like all the work that President Biden and Secretary Blinken have done behind the scenes has paid off.”
  • While Israel attempts to rid Gaza of the terrorist group Hamas, which massacred over 1,200 people in Israel on October 7, the Biden administration has undermined the war effort by refusing to notify Congress about military aid intended for Israel, thus blocking the delivery of the aid, according to a new report.
  • A group of anti-Israel protesters defaced a World War I Memorial and lit an American flag on fire in Central Park on Monday after police prevented around 1,000 of the demonstrators from reaching the Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The New York Post reported.
  • Stormy Daniels, the porn star who knocked boots with Donald Trump, will testify today. She is irrelevant to the case. This just proves Alvin Bragg wants a conviction and to embarrass Trump and not because he thinks he has a case. This will lead to an appeal.
  • Speaking of which, Donald Trump says he is going to say whatever he wants and just go to jail for contempt. He says that the First Amendment is just too important.
  • The Trump tax cuts are set to expire on Dec. 31, 2025.
    • This is an important subject now because Congress needs to vote to get them renewed. In a shock announcement, the President is just going to let them expire next year.
    • Although it kept seven income brackets, the TCJA lowered tax rates across the board and restructured bracket spans, making them more agreeable under the TCJA. Except for those who were at 10% (those making $11,000 or less) and 35% (those earning $231,251 to $578,125) tax rate levels before 2018, all income tax rates decreased when the new laws came into effect.
    • The top individual tax rate dropped from 39.6% to 37% under the terms of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (single filers making $578,126 and over), the 33% bracket fell to 32% ($182,101-$231,250), the 28% bracket to 24% ($95,376-$182,100), the 25% bracket to 22% ($44,726-$95,375) and the 15% bracket to 12% ($11,001-$44,725).
  • Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., warned that right-wing organizations connected to Trump are “training up in the hills somewhere” to attack if Biden wins the election in November.
    • Here’s what she said:

Doesn’t Matter that No One Can Read

According to Fox News:

The Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) is negotiating a new contract with the public schools system and is understood to be calling for an extra $50 billion to pay for wage hikes as well as other demands such as fully paid abortions for its members, new migrant services and facilities and a host of LGBT-related requirements and training in schools. 

To put the figure into context, the total base tax receipts for the state of Illinois last year were $50.7 billion.

The incredible demands are being made despite its members delivering underwhelming results for its students, with only 21 percent of the city’s eighth graders being proficient readers, according to the last Nation’s Report Card, which provides national results about students’ performance.

The union’s demands have not been made public but a leaked document sheds light on the eye-popping demands.

Union President Stacy Davis Gates’ audacious plan calls for members to bank at least 9% wage increases each year through fiscal year 2028.

The average salary of a teacher in Chicago Public Schools is $93,182, according to research by the Illinois Policy Institute, a conservative nonprofit think tank. Therefore, the average teacher’s pay will increase by half to $144,620 in the 2027-2028 school year, it says. 

Later in the article:

Johnson is a former CTU legislative coordinator who was put forward by the union to run for mayor. As of June 30, 2023, CTU had funneled more than $2.6 million into Johnson’s campaign while he received more than $6 million from teachers unions altogether, according to the Illinois Policy Institute.

Some things:

  • This is why there should be no public sector unions.
  • Abortion? I thought teachers loved kids?
  • What does LGBTQ crap have to do with math and reading?
  • They are going to get everything they want.
  • The citizens of Chicago deserve everything they get. They voted for this. Now, don’t move to Florida or Texas.

  • This gal has four piercings in the corners of her eyes, three piercings in her nose, and blue hair. She is lucky to get hired anywhere and now she just lost her job.
  • This is typical Marxist doctrine about the power of the worker. Guess what? That doctrine has always been wrong.
  • Finally, she is not the average worker. She works for Google, which means she is horribly overpaid.

May the Fourth Be With You!

According to Fox News:

Social media users mocked President Biden and actor Mark Hamill’s official “Star Wars Day” post this weekend.

Hamill, the actor behind legendary “Star Wars” character Luke Skywalker, joined President Biden in the Oval Office this week to commemorate May 4, affectionately known as “Star Wars Day.”

In a post shared to Biden’s official presidential account on X, formerly Twitter, both he and the 72-year-old sci-fi actor shared some Star Wars-themed cheer with the president’s followers. 

Joe Biden released a statement on Twitter: We had a very good feeling about this. May the 4th be with you, America.

Some of the comments on Twitter (now X):

  • Bonchie: And just like that, he ruined it.
  • Bricksuit: The most hilarious thing is that Joe is in Delaware right now and has already forgotten he said this.
  • Brilyn Hollyhand: The most hilarious thing is that Joe is in Delaware right now and has already forgotten he said this.

Some things:

  • Joe Biden is desperate to bring a 72-year old has-been actor to stand up for him.
  • The whole scene was cringy, to say the least. The fawning by Hamill was just gross.
  • It also shows that Hamill is living pretty well since doing his only acting role. He obviously doesn’t have to deal with buying things or is concerned with how much things cost.
  • This administration hasn’t figured out that hiring celebrities does not work.
  • By the way, Luke Skywalker doesn’t support Joe Biden. Mark Hamill does. Unlike what a lot of Conservatives say, this does not ruin Star Wars.

Still Being Unifying

Joe Biden decided to go out and insult our allies again. This time he decided to target Japan and India. Let’s listen to him:

That’s right. Japan and India are racist, xenophobic and sexist because they don’t “import” workers.

Well, we have been importing “workers” and how’s that going to us? Crime is up, welfare is up and our GDP is down. Does it look good for the economy to be importing 2 million people a year?

For some reason, this administration wants us to believe that all these people breaking the laws and sneaking over the border are getting jobs that Americans won’t do. That is not the case. Instead, they are taking handouts, committing crime, and changing out culture.

The Trump campaign is now planning to make mass deportations an election platform. This would be unheard of five years ago. It’s a winning message today.
