    New York Times ^ | October 22, 2018 | Sarah Mervosh and Christine Hauser
    L.G.B.T. activists mobilized a fast and fierce campaign that included a protest outside the White House on Monday to say transgender people cannot be expunged from society, in response to an unreleased Trump administration memo that proposes a strict definition of gender based on a person’s genitalia at birth. The existence of the draft memo, the administration’s latest effort to roll back the recognition and protection of transgender people under federal civil rights law, was reported by The New York Times on Sunday morning. Within hours, the hashtag #WontBeErased circulated on social media. By Sunday evening, a rally for transgender...

    Transgender adolescents are far more likely to attempt suicide than teens whose identity matches their sex assigned at birth, and trans male youth are especially at risk, a U.S. study suggests. Roughly half of transgender teens who identify as male but were assigned a female gender at birth have attempted suicide at least once, the study found. And 42 percent of adolescents who don’t identify exclusively as male or female have at least one prior suicide attempt. About 30 percent of trans female teens - who identify as female but have birth certificates that label them as male - have...

    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...

    Never mind that the FBI failed to heed and follow up on repeated and explicit warnings about Nikolas Cruz before his shooting rampage in Parkland, Florida. Never mind the FBI was too busy chasing phantom Russian collusion to locate a future killer that any nerd living in his parents' basement could have located with ease. According to mental health professional Jimmy Kimmel, Trump made Parkland happen by rescinding Obama administration regulations barring the mentally ill from getting guns:

    The state elections board website says Manning filed on Thursday in Montgomery County. Manning also tweeted a photo Thursday evening saying she is officially on the ballot. The transgender woman, known as Bradley Manning when she was convicted in 2013 of leaking more than 700,000 classified documents, was released from military prison in May after a 35-year sentence was commuted. Then-U.S. President Barack Obama commuted her sentence to time served plus 120 days in the final days of his administration.

    It’s become a near-weekly occurrence. Somewhere in some state, the FBI will announce that they’ve foiled yet another terrorist plot and saved lives. However, as the data shows, the majority of these cases involve psychologically diminished patsies who’ve been entirely groomed, armed, and entrapped by FBI agents. Simply put, the FBI manufactures terror threats and then takes credit for stopping them. While many of these cases have garnered attention and been exposed in the alternative media, a recent case out of Oklahoma sets a new low for FBI and exposes how insidious these plots can be. Through the hundreds of...

    TEXAS -- One of the most eloquent opponents of Texas' proposed gender bathroom law began identifying as a girl four years ago, when she was 3. It was at that age that Frank and Rachel Gonzales started to realize their child, Libby, wasn't living the life she was born to live. It wasn't always clear to them how best to support their first born. While on a family trip to California, Rachel took Libby -- then still called by her birth name -- to the toy store. It was there that things "came to a boil." "I said, 'You can...

    A mentally ill man who spent nearly four hours dangling from a Gallier Hall flagpole on Saturday (July 1), shutting down a downtown section of St. Charles Avenue, finally ended his disturbance around 1 p.m. and was arrested by New Orleans police. The unidentified man had snarled holiday weekend traffic on one of the city's most well-known streets, after harnessing himself about 25-30 feet above the hall's marble base around 9:15 a.m. and threatening to hang himself or jump. New Orleans police closed St. Charles Avenue between Poydras and Julia streets to all auto, pedestrian and streetcar traffic during the...

    However, he says, “what does worry me is the increase in the number of times euthanasia was performed on dementia patients, from 12 in 2009 to 141 in 2016, and on chronic psychiatric patients, from 0 to 60.” He recounts some of the horrific cases of patients of advanced dementia being euthanized without consent, such as one woman whose coffee was drugged, and who when she tried to struggle was held down by her family, and another where a husband mixed sleep medication in the porridge of his demented wife before the GP arrived with his deadly syringe. He describes...

Widely regarded as founder of the modern day birth control movement, Sanger and Hillary Clinton remain the sacrosanct champions of baby-parts-for-sale merchants, Planned Parenthood.

    Last year I did an interview with two communist militants in a Chicago Mall Food Court entitled Coffee With Communists, WHO THEY ARE WHY THEY KILL The two were part of a little known Marxist street gang known as Anti-racist Action or Antifa. These disgusting animals wanted to kill Americans and bragged that they had killed Americans, namely veterans. Their message to America, revolution was coming and that those who opposed socialism and opposed their agenda would be violently killed. In the past week Antifa made headlines and is no longer under the radar. In Berkeley and in other cities,...

    There we go. He’s irreligious and crazy. Just like all the others. Pay no attention Good news. All Muslim terrorists are actually mentally ill. There really are no Muslim terrorists per se. Just mentally ill people who occasionally shout, Allahu Akbar, while killing people in the name of some imaginary Islamic State. That’s the position the media is taking. So you won’t be surprised at all that the party line on the latest Paris Jihadist is Mentally Irreligious petty criminal

    Alleged ringleader Robert King (left) is accused of sending prostitutes to Bruce Bemer (right) and other clients for two decades. For 20 years, a Connecticut-based prostitution ring trafficked in mentally disabled young men, court papers revealed this week. The ring catered to wealthy male clients in Connecticut and Massachusetts who paid $250 for sex, according to court papers cited in the News-Times. At least 15 young men in their early 20s were exploited in the ring, authorities allege. The young men suffered illnesses that include schizophrenia and bipolar disorder; some were severely disabled and living in group homes, authorities allege....

The astonishing warning comes in official guidelines issued by the British Medical Association to its 160,000 members, which says mothers-to-be should be referred to as ‘pregnant people’ instead.

    While watching her in a pre-arranged and set up press conference (basically political theater) this morning she was unable to accept what the FBI Director had said about her being guilty of wrongdoing with the email scandal. I found it fascinating to watch her deny doing anything wrong although the rest of the planet by now knows she was 100% guilty. She also took credit for sending 30,000 emails during her four years as Sec. of State instead of crediting her office and assistants who actually sent the bulk of them. Of course she would then be saying she let...
