  • Don’t Let the 43 Republicans Who Voted for Obama’s Transgender Agenda Spin Their Vote

    05/30/2016 11:09:42 AM PDT · by SoFloFreeper · 31 replies
    Daily Signal ^ | 5/27/16 | Ryan Anderson
    On Wednesday, 43 Republican members of Congress joined the Democrats to vote for President Barack Obama’s transgender agenda. Now they’re trying to spin their vote. These 43 Republicans voted for the Maloney amendment, which ratified Obama’s 2014 executive order barring private businesses who do contract work for the government from engaging in what the government considers to be “discrimination” on the basis of “sexual orientation and gender identity” in their private employment policies. As I pointed out in an earlier Daily Signal article, “discrimination” on the basis of “gender identity” can be something as simple as having a bathroom policy...
  • Legendary artist Billy Joel dedicates song to Donald Trump at NYC concert, and it gets his attention

    Legendary artist Billy Joel gave a nod to Donald Trump at his Madison Square Garden concert in New York on Friday, TIME magazine reported. Joel dedicated his song “The Entertainer” to the presumptive Republican nominee, as he has reportedly done at previous concerts in recent months. Haters were quick to speculate that he was mocking Trump, and Joel did little to clear that up in his email statement to TIME on Saturday. “I’m in the entertainment business. Donald Trump’s campaign has been very entertaining,” Joel told TIME. “Aside from that, who cares about the political opinions of a piano player?”

    Just 1% of Russians approved of U.S. leadership in 2015 -- the worst rating in the world last year and the lowest approval Gallup has measured for the U.S. in the past decade. Remarkably, this is even worse than their previous record-low 4% approval in 2014.

    The 15-year-old girl had only been a student at South Fort Myers High School in Fort Myers, Fla., for two weeks when she went looking for her new crush in the boys’ bathroom. She’d spent the prior two years in and out of treatment facilities, her mother told NBC2, learning to cope with the horrors of the sex slave industry into which she had been trafficked at age 13. So when she tracked down her crush after school last week and he asked her for sex, her mother said through a victims’ advocate, the young teen agreed. But then word...

    Five different times, aides tried to drag him away from the booth where Josh Brody, a 24-year-old supporter of Bernie Sanders, was holding forth about all that had gone wrong in the 1990s: welfare, NAFTA, Wall Street. “Other people are waiting,” one staffer said, stepping forward. “I think we’re gonna agree to disagree here, guys,” he tried again. “All right, Mr. President. These folks are waiting,” a second aide said. But for more than 30 minutes, Bill Clinton stayed to argue every point, turning a routine retail stop at Tia Sophia’s, a Mexican restaurant here in Santa Fe, into a...

    ....Obama’s transgender directive isn’t about civil rights or bathroom use. It’s about state control over personal relationships. As usual, tyranny comes disguised as “civil rights.” The transgender movement has never been about “gender.” It’s all about sex. Sex is the real target. “Gender” is merely the politicized linguistic vehicle... It will serve to outlaw speech that identifies males as males and females as females... ...All such denials of reality require heavy-handed censorship.

Artist Y hates Trump and says that even though the record can be bought and purchased, Trump cannot play it publicly. And that wish is respected. Baker "J" creates cakes.

Mary Fallin vetoed the measure, saying the bill was “vague” and “would not withstand a criminal constitutional legal challenge.” “The bill is so ambiguous and so vague that doctors cannot be certain what medical circumstances would be considered ‘necessary to preserve the life of the mother,” Fallin said. “The absence of any definition, analysis or medical standard renders this exception vague, indefinite and vulnerable to subjective interpretation and application.” “While I consistently have and...

But they’re also trying to stay sensitive about taking more high-profile steps, such as running TV ads in an already overheated presidential race that promote Mexico as a friendly, vibrant neighbor and not a cesspool of...

In many countries, they are being systematically tortured and slaughtered by Islamic radicals hellbent on eradicating any vestige of Christianity. Churches are burned, looted, and bulldozed. Pastors are frequently targeted and martyred. In dozens of other countries, Christians are severely oppressed by government authorities and routinely denied any chance at an education and jobs. They live as second-class citizens, shunned and mocked by their neighbors who despise Christ. And...

    Before Cyndi Lauper was a solo artist – before the blue eyeliner, Captain Lou and those "whoa-whoa-whoas" on "We Are the World" – she fronted- the rockabilly-tinged band Blue Angel.... As an Apprentice veteran, what do you think of a potential Trump presidency? Of course, you're going to ask me a f****** political question. At the time I said he seemed nice because he had nice children, and that I wish I was so smart that I could get people to work that stinking hard and just show up and wave and say, "OK, you're fired!" But you don't go...

    Now here is a legal question you may have never heard: If a man likes to dress as a woman, can he be arrested while driving for impersonating a woman? It's one man's concern, and Help Me Howard with Patrick Fraser has the cross-dressing answer. Some interviews begin a little differently than others. Terry Richards: "When I first tried on a slip, I was 13. And next time, there was a bra hanging up, 'Oh, let me try that on.'" ....Terry Richards: "I'm not gay. I'm a heterosexual male who enjoys wearing women's clothes." Terry has always enjoyed dressing as...

    Curt Schilling was recently fired by ESPN in large part because of his frequent social-media activity, specifically controversial memes and comments shared by the former pitcher. So when reports circulated online that ESPN had cut Schilling’s memorable “bloody sock” performance in the 2004 ALCS from its Sunday airing of a “30 for 30″ documentary about that Red Sox-Yankees showdown, it was no surprise to see him weigh in quickly, and strongly.

    We hear that all these delegates, even though they are obligated to support Trump on the "first ballot", are able to switch their votes on subsequent ballots.What if Trump reaches the 1,237 votes or whatever....but some of the delegates get "blue flu" during the first ballot and do not show up? Or if they claim "rioters" have kept them from getting to the convention hall? On subsequent ballots, then, they could vote against Trump?
  • Phony Pols: Muslim Women are 0.4% of pop., somehow in NEARLY EVERY POLITICAL BACKDROP

    Hillary and Kasich particularly... | 4/30/16 | sff
    So FOX news just carried a few seconds of a stump speech by 40 time loser John Kasich. Imagine how UNSURPRISING to see sitting attentively listening was a woman dressed in Muslim headscarf. Seems like a HUGE NUMBER of political speeches these days have Muslim WOMEN in the background...you know, to make the viewer on TV see the politician is TOLERANT. So I did a little search and found this article: http://www.idigitaltimes.com/muslim-population-us-new-poll-shows-none-us-have-any-idea-392930 that says the Muslim population is 0.8% of the USA. Figuring a 50/50 split among that number leaves one figuring that 0.4% is female.... Yet somehow, some WAY,...

    [The clown and Michelle] mean business—arms crossed, game faces on, voices exuding no nonsense. “Hey, Prince Harry,” first lady Michelle Obama says with a menacing tone in a video posted to her Twitter account Friday. “Remember when you told us to bring it at the Invictus Games?” ..., the goal behind this very public “feud” lies in raising awareness for the upcoming Invictus Games, to be held May 8-12 in Orlando, Florida. The competition is “an international sporting event for wounded, injured and sick Service personnel,” according to the Invictus Games website.
