    The nation’s transgender community, after a year of tremendous opposition from state legislatures and the president, is rejoicing Tuesday over the election of Andrea Jenkins, who gender advocates say has made history as the first openly transgender black woman elected to public office in the United States. Jenkins, who has been elected to the Minneapolis City Council, became the second openly transgender candidate to win a race Tuesday night. Democrat Danica Roem is poised to be the first openly transgender person elected and seated in a state legislature in the country, beating a 13-term Virginia incumbent who called himself the...

    Minneapolis has elected two black transgender representatives to its City Council, adding to what advocacy groups have described as a banner election for transgender people in public office. Andrea Jenkins easily won the race Tuesday night for an open seat in south Minneapolis, with roughly 73 percent of the vote. Jenkins, a 56-year-old poet and historian who transitioned in her 30s, spent years as a policy aide to two previous council members in the same ward. Phillipe Cunningham’s victory took longer because of Minneapolis’ instant-runoff voting system. But by Wednesday afternoon, the city announced Cunningham — a 29-year old transgender...

    Dallas proclaimed itself the first “human rights county” in Texas. The commissioners court embraced the United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, an initiative that claims to cultivate communities worldwide, although the Geneva-based Human Rights Council (HRC) has come under fire for anti-Israel bias and member countries with poor records. “Human rights abuses occur in our community, our country, and our world every day,” said Democrat Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, who pushed the resolution to a vote on July 5. “We must lead at the local level. We can’t do everything but we can all do something.” Democrat commissioners...
  • Leftist Activists Get Kicked Out Of A Food Court, But Not Before Showing Porn To A Reporter

    Anti-fascist activists had a difficult time pushing back against James O’Keefe’s investigative reporting during a planned press conference Thursday. They got kicked out of a food court, but not before showing pornography to a reporter. The DC Antifascist Coalition had booked a room at the National Press Club to hold a press conference in which they would unveil damaging information about O’Keefe and his group Project Veritas. In the lead-up to President Donald Trump’s inauguration, Project Veritas released videos which resulted in the arrest of a member of DisruptJ20 and foiled a plot to use stink bombs at an inauguration...

    One year later, the aftershocks from Tea Party favorite Dave Brat’s stunning win over then-House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) are still rippling across Washington. (SNIP) Rep.

    Shortly after he tried to reassure this city at a news conference that he did not put himself at risk of Ebola by coming into contact with the quarantined family of the nation’s first Ebola victim last week, Judge Clay Jenkins had a smaller audience to convince. His neighbors. And his wife. Hours after driving the quarantined family from their potentially contaminated apartment to their new temporary home on Oct. 3, Mr. Jenkins, 50, pulled up about 10 p.m. to the house in the upscale Highland Park area where he lives with his wife and 8-year-old daughter. His wife greeted...

    DALLAS, Texas -- Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins bragged to reporters about wearing the same shirt to the press conference he wore while he was, just thirty minutes earlier, driving the family exposed to the Ebola virus to their new secret luxury four-bedroom home. The international assembly of reporters were attending the Judge’s press conference in the Dallas County Administration Building formerly known as the Texas Schoolbook Depository. This is the same building from where Lee Harvey Oswald allegedly shot President John F. Kennedy. Jenkins bragged to the reporters that he was “wearing the same shirt” he wore while he...

    Congressional candidate newcomer Steve Fitzgerald characterized the handling by Republican leaders of federal policy fights as a frustrating series of defeat and surrender maneuvers. He expressed contempt for GOP lawmakers moving toward legislation that could deliver amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. But the piece of the puzzle motivating him to enter the 2nd Congressional District Republican primary against U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins was a decision by GOP brethren in Washington, D.C., to go along with a reduction in future cost-of-living adjustments for military retirees.

    West Virginia state Sen. Evan Jenkins announced Wednesday that he is switching from the Democratic Party to the Republican Party and will challenge longtime Rep. Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.) in 2014. “West Virginia is under attack from Barack Obama and a Democratic Party that our parents and grandparents would not recognize,” Jenkins said. “I am proud to join the Republican Party in fighting Washington’s assault on our state, our freedoms, and our jobs.” Jenkins is the latest in a growing number of Democrats from Southern state legislatures to make the switch — with many of them coming in Louisiana and Mississippi,...

    Fr. John Jenkins, C.S.C., the president of the University of Notre Dame, has a piece in The Wall Street Journal pleading for civility in debate. This is not the first time that Fr. Jenkins has used that word. In fact, calls for “civility” have become something of a hallmark of his presidency of the University. In recent years, there have reportedly been on-campus panel discussions on civility, a University forum called “A More Perfect Union: The Future of America’s Democracy,” and posters urging students to take the “Notre Dame Pledge for Virtuous Discourse,” which encourages students to engage in respectful...
