Common Sense Prevails: Parents Fight Off Attempt to Allow Children to ‘Self Identify’ Gender

Via Breitbart

Parents and family groups have succeeded in putting a halt to a proposed rule in Delaware that would have allowed children in grades K-12 to self-identify as a gender or race without the consent of their parents.

According to the text of Regulation 225 – referred to as an “anti-discrimination” regulation – Delaware school officials may not wish to trust parents with the information their child wants to identify as the opposite biological sex or a different race, if those parents are not fully on board with their child’s decision.

……“Policies like Regulation 225 are setting parents up as a ‘non-ally’ and ‘unsupportive,’ discriminatory, even abusive, if they affirm their child’s biological realities and work through it instead of embracing the confusion,” states Delaware Family Policy Council – which spearheaded opposition to the rule.

The group continues that while all children should be treated with respect, and gender-confused children should receive “compassionate accommodations,” the rule obstructs “the right of parents to care for their children without government intrusion.”

Within the liberal public school system that’s been he case for a while.  The State knows how to raise your children better than you, and don’t you forget it. Including labeling restrooms that project their insane ideas on ‘gender identity’, and ‘transgender’.

……Most state House Republicans – 14 of 16 members – sent a letter to Delaware Secretary of Education Susan Bunting last month, urging her to reject the statewide regulation and allow local school districts to handle related issues as they see fit.

More parents of all political stripes are dismissing the claims of LGBT activists – often funded by wealthy progressive philanthropists – who accuse them of bigotry and discrimination for not accepting an ideology that rejects the scientific fact of the existence of two biological sexes – male and female.


Children don’t have the capacity to understand the complexities of sex, gender, or the asinine projections of the Left.

Trump Formally Recognizes Jerusalem as Capitol of Israel, Will Move U.S. Embassy There

The Dems and their media tools were for recognizing Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel before Trump actually did it. Now they have to figure out a way to spin this into a negative.

Via Fox News

President Trump on Wednesday formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, saying it’s time to “acknowledge the obvious” as he ordered the State Department to begin moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

“I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,” the president said during a speech in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House.

The move fulfills a campaign promise made to religious conservatives. But it could also inflame tensions across the Middle East.

“This is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality,” Trump said. “It is also the right thing to do. It’s something that has to be done.”

……“This will immediately begin the process of hiring architects, engineers and planners so that a new embassy when completed will be a magnificent tribute to peace,” Trump said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in a televised message, thanked Trump for what he called a “courageous and just” decision.

……“This decision reflects the president’s commitment to an ancient but enduring truth,” Netanyahu said. “The president’s decision is an important step toward peace, for there is no peace that doesn’t include Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.”



President Trump’s declaration Wednesday that the United States formally recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city is an acknowledgement of historical fact and current reality.

As Israel’s closest ally, as the principal facilitator of Arab-Israeli peacemaking, and as the pre-eminent global leader, the U.S. initiative in taking this step is of critical significance. The president has acted wisely.

Bold actions can prompt new thinking and stimulate initiatives to advance peace. Forty years ago last month, Egyptian President Anwar Sadat flew to Israel. He became the first Arab head of state to visit and he addressed the Knesset (parliament) in Israel’s capital of Jerusalem, even before formal peace negotiations began.

Recognition of the city that Israel has always deemed its capital is long overdue. The prime minister’s office, the Knesset, and nearly all Israeli government offices have been situated in Jerusalem since Israel declared its independence nearly 70 years ago.

……In fact, there was a time when 16 countries maintained their embassies in Jerusalem. Succumbing to Arab pressures, however, they relocated their embassies to Tel Aviv, where the U.S. and other countries have long kept their embassies.

This perpetuates a nonsensical abnormality. No other country in the world has been treated this way, neither in bilateral relations nor at the United Nations and other multilateral forums.



This freak-out came despite the fact that Congress overwhelmingly passed bipartisan legislation in 1995 stating that “the United States Embassy in Israel should be established in Jerusalem no later than May 31, 1999.” And in June this year the Senate voted  90-0 to approve a resolution stating that “Jerusalem should remain the undivided capital of Israel.”

On top of that, candidate Trump promised many times during his presidential campaign that he would do exactly what he announced Wednesday.


Finally, after eight years of Barky’s despicable treatment of Israel, we have a President that recognizes the importance of maintaining relations with America’s only democratic ally in the Middle East.

Al Franken Resigns

After endless prattle over conspiracy theories about how several women with no apparent ties suddenly came out of nowhere to accuse him of sexual misconduct, he finally relents.



From Fox News

Calling it “the worst day of his political life,” Sen. Al Franken said Thursday he will resign from the U.S. Senate following a wave of sexual misconduct allegations against him that ranged from groping to forcibly trying to kiss women.
Franken, who said that some of the complaints against him were “simply not true” and that he remembers others “differently,” also took a parting shot at President Trump.
“There is some irony in the fact that I am leaving office while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office,” he said from the Senate floor.

Trump joked about ‘grabbing pussy’ Franken and multiple other DemRats actually did.

It will be up to  Minnesota Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton to appoint a successor.

Multiple sources reported that the likely candidate could be Democratic Lt. Gov. Tina Smith, a close ally of Franken. The successor would serve until a special election is held in 2018 to determine who would fill the final two years of Franken’s term.

On Wednesday, Franken faced a tidal wave of resignation calls by members of his own party.

Or as Laura Ingraham puts it: ‘A sudden case of feverish morality and ‘political calculation’ on the part of Dems.

……The Minneapolis Star Tribune, the largest newspaper in Franken’s home state, called for his immediate resignation late Wednesday. They questioned his ability to “function effectively” after “losing the confidence of so many colleagues.


A reminder for Minnesota: Franken stole the election in 2009.

Franken’s campaign pulled fraudulent ballots out of nowhere and had them counted twice.  Under Minnesota law, election officials are required to make a duplicate ballot if the original is damaged during Election Night counting, mark them as “duplicate”, and segregate the original ballots.  Officials failed to mark the duplicates, and they were counted in addition to the original ballots.  What a coin-ki-dink.

Not only did Minnesota get a buffoon as Senator, he was propped up into office by corrupt election officials. ACORN couldn’t have done any better.

Not only did they end up with a fraud for a Senator, but a sexual predator as well.

Trump Withdraws From U.N.’s Pandering Policy on ‘Refugees’


From Deutsche Welle

The United States has announced it is withdrawing from the Global Compact on Migration. The non-binding UN migration pact was meant to boost international cooperation on migration issues.

US President Donald Trump’s administration has withdrawn the United States from a United Nations pact to coordinate and improve international migration and refugee issues, the US mission to the global body said.

……”The New York Declaration contains numerous provisions that are inconsistent with US immigration and refugee policies and the Trump Administration’s immigration principles. As a result, President Trump determined that the United States would end its participation in the Compact process that aims to reach international consensus at the UN in 2018,” the US statement said.

US Ambassador Nikki Haley said, “America is proud of our immigrant heritage and long-standing leadership” on supporting migrants and refugees.

“No country has done more than the United States, and our generosity will continue. But our decisions on immigration policies must always be made by Americans and Americans alone,” she added. “We will decide how best to control our borders and who will be allowed to enter our country. The global approach in the New York Declaration is simply not compatible with US sovereignty.”

I am so glad that we now have a leader who is reversing the damage that Barky did to national security and sovereignty.

The last thing America needs is to become a muzzie terrorist enclave like Europe.

Twitter Censors Another Conservative Journalist

Via Breitbart

Add Pajama Media’s Bridget Johnson to the list of those summarily silenced by Twitter’s ongoing purge of conservative voices. According to her employer, Johnson, a long-time journalist with established bylines at, among others, USA Today,the Hill, Politico, NPR, and the Jerusalem Post,  was removed from Twitter over the weekend without warning, cause or explanation.

A link to Johnson’s cache’d tweets (from late September) shows nothing close to any of the flame wars, abuse, taunting, bullying or anything else that violates Twitter’s intentionally-cryptic terms of service. As someone who has known Bridget for going on 10 years (in the early days of the inter-web-dot-nets I blogged at her site), this suspension makes even less sense. She is a total pro, a pursuer of facts, and as her Facebook account shows, nothing close to a flaming partisan.

As of now it appears as though Johnson is just the latest victim of Twitter’s Kafka-esque campaign to chill conservative speech, a campaign with no set rules, guidelines, or explanations when you are entirely disappeared due to a capricious act of corporate fascism.

Johnson’s journalistic focus has for years been on Islamic terrorism and immigration. Just prior to her removal, her headlines included,  “Al-Qaeda Laments: Why the American ‘Enmity with the Sharia?”‘; “UN: Nations Should Agree ‘to Refrain from Using Deterrence Measures’ Against Migrants“; “ISIS Vows to ‘Take the Neck Off’ of ‘Pharaoh’ Trump“; and “Nevada Republican Signs Dems’ Petition to Force DREAM Act to the House Floor.”

Hardly the stuff of controversy. But the online protection racket involving inconvenient truths about radical Islam might have had something to do with it.

Twitter’s animus towards even anodyne conservatism has been well documented. Who will ever forget Twitter banning a campaign ad for Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) that told the truth about her work to stop the abortion industry from selling body parts.

Other forms of documented Twitter censorship of conservatives and conservative ideas involve a practice known as “shadow banning.” Twitter also “grays” the profiles of users it decides are guilty of posting “sensitive content.” This results in a warning to everyone else before the tweets can be read.

……Twitter has been one of the most effective weapons ever for punching holes in mainstream media narratives and for the fact-checking of MSM hit-jobs. Twitter has allowed the political right to strangle all kinds of media lies, arguments, and talking points in their infant cribs. Left alone, Twitter is the new public square, a forum vital to any healthy democracy, which is why the left cannot allow it to be left alone.

Exhausted and out of ideas, all the left and its media have left is the empty rhetoric of identity politics, emotional blackmail, and torrents of fake news. Twitter allows the average American to use history, facts, and logic as a means to effectively rebut this nonsense, to undermine the elite bottleneck of idea and thought, and that just cannot be allowed to stand.


Twitter’s co-founder Evan Williams isn’t a fan of free speech. He’s pretty pissed that social media provides an outlet for the patriotic opposition to circumvent liberal control of the main stream media. He says that he ‘was wrong for thinking that the world would be a better place if there was a platform for everyone to freely speak and exchange ideas.’  Really?  Leftwingnuts want to live in a world where everyone listens only to them, on their terms. Last I checked, the 1st amendment guarantees that right to everyone.

Williams laments that Twitter helped Trump win the election. I certainly hope so. Donald Trump takes his positions and case right to the American people without the interference of the hostile leftards in the media.

Sucks to be Williams.
