  • "Christine" Hallquist: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

    08/15/2018 2:58:06 PM PDT · by libh8er · 51 replies
    Hallquist married a woman named Pat, and had three children, whom they raised in Vermont. She confided to Pat that she felt like a woman trapped in a man’s body — but she also promised Pat that she would not reveal that to the world. She eventually changed her mind, after struggling with a bout of intense depression that convinced her to transition to living as a woman.
  • Christine Hallquist, a Transgender Woman, Wins Vermont Governor’s Primary

    On a cloudy afternoon this summer, Christine Hallquist, a former utility executive from Vermont, listened closely as Danica Roem, the Virginia state delegate who won national recognition when she became the first transgender person elected to her state’s Legislature, offered tips as the pair canvassed a stark residential neighborhood here. Ms. Hallquist is transgender, too, but Ms. Roem’s advice had nothing to do with gender identity. Try a light, rhythmic knock. Leave a handwritten note with campaign literature if no one is home. Try to earn every vote. “I have so much to learn,” Ms. Hallquist said, duly incorporating Ms....

    Rick Genest, a model who was known for his head-to-toe tattoos and for appearing in the music video for Lady Gaga’s 2011 song “Born This Way,” has died at 32. Dulcedo Management, which represented him, confirmed his death on its Facebook page on Thursday but did not say where or precisely when he died. He lived in Montreal. On her Twitter account, Lady Gaga said the cause was suicide, and that it was “beyond devastating.” “We have to work harder to change the culture, bring Mental Health to the forefront and erase the stigma that we can’t talk about it,”...

    AP SacBee ^ | August 03, 2018 | KEN RITTER and MICHELLE L. PRICE
    In the year before Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock carried out the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history, the high-stakes gambler appeared to have become increasingly unstable, distant and constantly complained of being sick, according to a final investigative report released Friday. Financial records also showed Paddock had lost more than $1.5 million in the two years before the Oct. 1 shooting that left 58 people dead and more than 800 others injured. One of Paddock's brothers told investigators that he believed the gunman had a "mental illness and was paranoid and delusional," and his doctor believed he may...

    July 24, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Indications that our culture is on its last legs, rationally speaking, are in abundance these days. Earlier this month, for example, we’ve been exposed to the delightful new term “theybies”—which, if you’re wondering, is what you call a baby when you decide to raise the child “gender-neutral” so that they can choose their own gender at around four years old. In Ireland, which has been gleefully offloading its Christian heritage since they repealed the right to life for pre-born children in May, the social protection minister lauded a report on “Ireland’s gender identity laws…that recommended...

    Move over Jake and Elwood, Maxine Waters is on a mission from God. After acknowledging the children in the audience, the California Congresswoman ripped into Trump during a Sunday appearance at 1st AME Church in L.A. Waters said there is “an attempt to intimidate, an attempt to frighten, an attempt to make you go away and shut up and be quiet. “I don’t know shut up!” she said to thunderous cheers. “I don’t know intimidation. I don’t know fear.” She counseled her audience, “Don’t you worry about those who are threatening. Don’t you worry about those who are talking about...

    Just because someone is severely depressed, does that mean they can't also be a jihadist? Are the two conditions mutually exclusive? This seems to be the thinking of Canadian law enforcement and much of the U.S. and Western Europe as well. By Monday late afternoon the provincial authorities finally provided the name of the deceased killer, but they still withheld other vital information, such as his immigration status. The Canadian media played along with its well-rehearsed game of don't ask don't tell. Hussain's motive, and much of his background, remains a mystery, they said. Did he come to Canada with his...

    Graffiti on a Boston wall screams: “Kill your local Trump supporter.” Meanwhile, Londoners at a massive protest took turns, under the famous “baby Trump” balloon, at bashing another naked Trump balloon while crowds cheered. Bashers stepped away looking lighter, as though they had been dunked in a river by some cult promising inner salvation. Children have been pepper-sprayed at free speech protests attended by their parents. The elderly have been beaten nearly to death while walking to their cars, which perhaps sported a Trump sticker on the back.

    When The Naked Farmer came to town looking for people to get their kit off for a good cause, dairy farmer Kerry Wilson was approached to take part. He and his partner Paul Wilson agreed, though Kerry had reservations about not having the right body type. "Gee whiz, I'm 56. Does it matter?" Kerry asked. It didn't. The cause, which raises awareness about the mental health of Australian farmers, hit a personal chord with the couple. Kerry and Paul are fifth-generation farmers who live and work together near Nimbin in the northern rivers of New South Wales. "You carry a...

    If there’s one celebrity the leftist media needs to stop taking seriously, it’s Tom Arnold. The actor and comedian already proved his misogyny by attacking conservative pundit Candace Owens in a vulgar rant. He also recently threatened to show up at Barron Trump’s school. Barron Trump — the president’s youngest child — is 12 years old. Arnold is 59 years old. Though he’s proved his low level of rhetoric time and time again, the Hollywood liberal continues to be taken seriously by the mainstream media. He has an upcoming anti-Trump show on Vice and he’s appeared on both CNN and...

    Government leaker and transgender rights advocate Chelsea Manning entered the U.S. Senate race in Maryland to huge fanfare this year, but her campaign is poised to wind down quietly Tuesday when voters head to the polls on primary day. Ms. Manning promised to shake up the race, using her high profile to push a platform that included creating a universal health care system, abolishing federal law enforcement agencies such as U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and combating what she called the American “police state.” But the strain of being in the public eye after seven years in prison for leaking...

    If you went to school, earned a bachelors or master’s degree, yet were being turned down for jobs you are qualified for because of the way you look or talk, how would you feel? How would you feel if this was happening to your spouse or your children? You’d be infuriated, right? There are thousands of transgender men and woman who face this situation with most job applications they submit. Transgender people are over “four times more likely than the general population to have a household income under $10,000,” even though 47% of them, more than the general population, have...

    Forget extreme plastic surgery, tattoos and piercings - a minority are taking body modification to the next level - by voluntarily cutting off their own limbs. A body modifier has exclusively revealed how his "extra" limbs feel alien, and has resorted to the drastic measure of self-mutilation - because he actually want to be disabled. Dr. Michael First, a professor of psychiatry at Columbia University, has led investigations into this bizarre and extremely rare psychiatric condition which he is calling body integrity identity disorder (BIID). Also known as amputee identity disorder, it gives people a fierce desire to rid themselves...

    Like many new dads, Sabastion Sparks knew parenting would come with serious challenges. But most new dads didn't give birth to their child. They didn't breastfeed them. And they don't endure glares from strangers when they go shopping with their wife and their toddler son. Sabastion, 24, is a transgender man who lives with his wife Angel in suburban Atlanta. Assigned the female gender at birth, he began transitioning five years ago . It's a process that felt more complete last month when he had surgery to remove his breasts.

    After achieving some notoriety as Donald Trump’s ghostwriter for “Art of the Deal,” Tony Schwartz has been seeking a second bite at the celebrity apple, advancing the notion that Trump is—not to put too fine a point on it—crazy. And of course, the liberal media is happy to provide Schwartz a platform to promote his theory. So there was Schwartz on CNN this morning: “I’m going to say it very bluntly: he’s mentally ill . . . He’s prima facie mentally ill: he has a personality disorder.”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    A Honduran immigrant reportedly took his own life while in custody after his wife and child were separated from him at the U.S.-Mexico border. Marco Antonio Muñoz, 29, killed himself in the cell of a Texas jail last month, according to the Starr County sheriff’s department incident report obtained by The Washington Post. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) did not publicly disclose the death, according to The Post. The Hill has reached out to DHS for comment.

    I don’t wish to be unkind. But facts are facts. A victim is someone who has something bad happen to him, totally against his will and without any say or control in the matter. Suicide does not “happen” to someone. It’s something one does to oneself. Most of us are drowning in virtue-signaling and political correctness — so much so that we can’t even see it. It seems cool to mourn people who kill themselves even though you never knew them. How do we know we would have liked and admired them had we even known them personally? Consider some...

    Would you rather date an MS-13 gang member or someone who supports President Donald Trump? That's what Daily Caller reporters Stephanie Hamill and Julia Nista asked young people on the streets of Washington, D.C. Stunningly, a majority of respondents said they would rather date a member of the brutal gang, which operates by the motto "kill, rape, control." When asked why they wouldn’t date a Trump supporter, people said those who back the president "weren't for them" and they would "never" do it.
