HR 3222: Freedom of religion in danger with Democrat House majority

On Nov. 16, 1993, then-President Bill Clinton, a Democrat, signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) that “ensures that interests in religious freedom are protected” into law, with an almost-unanimous approval by Congress. Every House member approved of the bill; only three senators voted no.

Incredibly, both the House and Senate versions of RFRA were sponsored by Democrats: Rep. Chuck Shumer (NY) and Sen. Ted Kennedy (MA).

Then is then, and now is now.

The Democrat Party that spearheaded RFRA has become the hate-America, hate-God Demonrat Party that now is bent on the all-but-in-name repeal of the same law it once championed.

In an op/ed for the Washington Examiner, November 14, 2018, former Rep. Ernest Istook (R-Okla.), who now teaches political science at Utah Valley University, reports that even before the Nov. 6 election, 50 House Democrats had co-sponsored H.R. 3222, a bill to gut the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). With a majority of Demonrats now in control of the House of Representatives after the recent mid-term elections, there are now 172 House Democrats who support H.R. 3222, as their party takes control of the House.

H.R. 3222, sanctimoniously and deceptively titled the Do No Harm Act, is sponsored by Rep. Joseph Kennedy (D-Mass.) and co-sponsored by 170 other House members, all Demonrats, one of whom is the anticipated incoming chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), 71. That committee would be in charge of approving the undoing of RFRA.

H.R. 3222’s companion Senate bill (S. 2918) is authored by Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and co-sponsored by 28 other Demonrat senators.

Instead of a head-on repeal of RFRA, H.R. 3222 and S. 2918 take a sly approach by creating a long itemized list of exemptions from the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, thereby diminishing and undermining RFRA’s protection of religious freedom. The exemptions include sexual orientation, gender identity, and abortion. In effect, our Constitutional First Amendment right to freedom of religion would be declared less important than other claims never mentioned in the Constitution and often not even legislated by elected officials.

Groups endorsing HR 3222 and S 2918 are the usual leftwing suspects and promoters of evil: the ACLU, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, the Human Rights Campaign, Center for American Progress, Lambda Legal, NAACP, NARAL, National Center for Transgender Equality, National Organization of Women, and Planned Parenthood.

Istook writes:

H.R. 3222 would declare that religious freedoms must yield when they run counter to the LGBTQ agenda or to other progressive causes such as abortion rights. Pushing this are progressive groups which claim that religious beliefs are just a cover for discrimination, bigotry, and hate….

The turnaround [since RFRA] dramatizes how culture and politics have changed in 25 years. Secular values have been given priority and religious freedoms have been narrowed.

Istook warns that HR 3222 and S 2918 will also reverse the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby and Masterpiece Cakeshop decisions. State-level versions of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act are also being attacked. Those were enacted in 21 states after the U.S. Supreme Court in 1997 ruled that RFRA protects only against intrusive laws on the federal level.

And although the GOP-majority Senate is very unlikely to approve S. 2918 or any legislation gutting the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, those who oppose RFRA will be emboldened by HR 3222, and they will keep trying.

Biological male wins women’s cycling championship

McKinnon (c) takes another win earlier this year/Instagram photo

 

McKinnon on the podium (c) for the world championship win.

This transgender woman won the women’s world cycling championship. No biological advantage there…

Of course if you have a different opinion than the good doctor you are nothing but a bigot.

From News.com.au: CYCLING’S first transgender world champion has fired back at heated criticism surrounding her breakthrough victory at the 2018 UCI Masters track championships.

Canadian philosophy professor at South Carolina’s College of Charleston Dr. Rachel McKinnon endured a torrent of online trolling after taking to social media to celebrate her world championship win in the women’s 35-44 sprint final at the Velo Sports Center in Los Angeles earlier this week (this story was dated Oct. 16.).

An image of McKinnon standing tall above her competitors during the medal presentation ceremony has spread globally in the wake of her controversial victory — just as she predicted.

McKinnon, born a biological male, won gold in the sprint final against friend Carolien Van Herrikhuyzen from the Netherlands.

An elated McKinnon claimed, to her knowledge, she is the first openly transgender athlete to win a world championship in any sport, after nudging past Van Herrikhuyzen on the final straight in a time of 12.903 seconds.

American Jennifer Wagner, who finished third, led the criticism against McKinnon’s participation in the championships.

Wagner responded to English media commentator Katie Hopkins’ online swipe at McKinnon by declaring it was not fair that McKinnon was able to compete at all. Hopkins also declared it was “febrile madness” for the UCI to sanction McKinnon’s participation.

McKinnon hit out at the criticism immediately following her victory both on social media and in interviews. She told velonews.com she enjoyed no physical advantage over her competitors despite being born a male.

“I think there is absolutely no evidence that I have an unfair advantage,” McKinnon said. “People who oppose transgender inclusion in sport put us in the double bind. It’s the “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” scenario.

“If I win, they attribute it to me being trans and having an unfair advantage. If I lose, the same people think I must not be good anyway. People will never attribute my winning to hard work which is what I think I deserve.”

She said there is no research to suggest that testosterone and body development would in anyway enhance the physical performance of transgender athletes.

She recently told USA Today that policing the testosterone levels of transgender athletes violates their human rights — declaring that should override all debates surrounding potential unfair playing fields for transgender athletes.

“We cannot have a woman legally recognised as a trans woman in society, and not be recognized that way in sports,” McKinnon said recently.

Focusing on performance advantage is largely irrelevant because this is a rights issue (#sportisahumanright). We shouldn’t be worried about trans people taking over the Olympics. We should be worried about their fairness and human rights instead.

Vaginas required: Gov. Moonbeam signs bill requiring public companies to have at least one female director on their board

Wait, real vaginas are not actually required. One only needs to self-identify her gender as a woman, without regard their designated sex at birth.

From Sacramento Bee: With Gov. Jerry Brown’s signature on Sunday, California public companies will soon expand female representation on their boards.

Senate Bill 826, introduced by Democrats Hannah Beth-Jackson and Toni Atkins, requires public companies to have at least one female director on their board by the end of next year. By the end of 2021, companies with five directors must have two women on their boards, and companies with six or more board members must have at least three women.

In a signing statement, Brown acknowledged concerns that “may prove fatal” to the bill’s implementation, but said “it’s high time corporate boards include the people who constitute more than half the ‘persons’ in America.”

The proposal received opposition from the California Chamber of Commerce, which argued the bill would violate the independent voting rights of corporate boards and force companies to discriminate against qualified men. Despite the concerns, the bill was a top priority this year for the California Legislative Women’s Caucus. The bill cleared the Legislature on the final week of session.

“SB 826 is a giant step forward for women, our businesses and our economy,” Jackson said in a statement.

From the bill text:

“This bill, no later than the close of the 2019 calendar year, would require a domestic general corporation or foreign corporation that is a publicly held corporation, as defined, whose principal executive offices, according to the corporation’s SEC 10-K form, are located in California to have a minimum of one female, as defined, on its board of directors, as specified. No later than the close of the 2021 calendar year, the bill would increase that required minimum number to 2 female directors if the corporation has 5 directors or to 3 female directors if the corporation has 6 or more directors. The bill would require, on or before specified dates, the Secretary of State to publish various reports on its Internet Web site documenting, among other things, the number of corporations in compliance with these provisions. The bill would also authorize the Secretary of State to impose fines for violations of the bill, as specified, and would provide that moneys from these fines are to be available, upon appropriation, to offset the cost of administering the bill.”

According to VC Star, companies can be fined $100,000 for a first violation and $300,000 for subsequent violations. The law also requires companies to report their board composition to the California secretary of state and imposes a $100,000 fine if a company fails to do so.

Teaching guide for Portland public schools celebrates Islam, communists, terrorists, abortion; promotes gun control & transgenders

U.S. public schools are no longer about teaching students facts, information, and how to read and write. It’s all about “changing the world” in accordance with what the Left call “social justice” — code words for Marxism.

In an exclusive for the Gateway Pundit, Brock Simmons reports, Aug. 29, 2018, that 3,500 public school teachers in Portland, Oregon, are given an $18 teaching guide meant for children as young as 5 years old.

The guide, Planning to Change The World – A Plan Book For Social Justice Teachers, is produced by the Education for Liberation Network, published in partnership with Rethinking Schools, and is suffused with Marxist propaganda.

To begin, the teaching guide states its purpose as:

Planning to Change the World is a plan book for teachers who believe their students can and do create meaningful social change….

This plan book is designed to help teachers translate their visions of a just education into concrete classroom activities. It is both a daily reminder of the importance of teaching for justice and a collection of tools to help you do just that. Planning to Change the World is packed with important social justice birthdays and historical events, words of wisdom from visionary leaders, lesson plans, resources, social justice education happenings and much more.

And what is the teaching guide’s conception of the “social justice” that students are encouraged to “change the world” into?

It is a vision that celebrates Islam (while downplaying Christianity), communists and domestic terrorists; promotes gun-control and “transgenders”; celebrates abortion; and trashes America’s July 4 and Thanksgiving holidays.

Islam

The teaching guide gives prominence to:

  • The Muslim holidays of Eid al-Adha on August 20 and Muharram on September 11.
  • A quote by activist Pervez Musharraf: “Islam teaches tolerance, not hatred; universal brotherhood, not enmity; peace, and not violence.”

While the teaching guide’s calendar does acknowledge Christmas Day, the word “Christmas” is in a thinner type font, whereas the wholly concocted “African American” holiday of Kwanzaa and the Mexican Cinco de Mayo on May 5 get bold type fonts.

Communists

The teaching guide:

  • Celebrates the anniversary of the founding of Communist North Korea on September 9, and the anniversary on December 4 of the El Congreso del Pueblos de Habla Espanola, an organization linked to communist sympathizers; and the birthday of Marxist intellectual Noam Chomsky on December 7. No mention is made of Imperial Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7.
  • Features quotes by known Marxists, including:
    • The Left’s perennial favorite Che Guvara: “I am not a liberator. Liberators do not exist. The people liberate themselves.”
    • Black Nationalist Marcus Garvey: “We are not rebels and revolutionaries, but humans who will no longer be denied our humanity.”

Terrorists

  • Celebrates the birthday of Fred Hampton, the founder of domestic terrorists Black Panthers, including a quote from him on the need for Black racial solidarity.
  • Features quotes by:
    • Assata Shakur, a violent Black Panther activist who escaped from prison and fled to Cuba in the 1970’s after murdering a police officer in New Jersey. She is one of the FBI’s most wanted, with a $2 million reward for her capture.
    • Black Panther and Communist Party member Angela Davis, who purchased guns that were used in a courthouse shoot out in the 1960’s: “I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change. I am changing the things I cannot accept.”
    • Black Panther James Forman: “We are not born revolutionary. Revolutionaries are forged through constant struggle and the study of revolutionary ideas and experiences.”
    • Roger Alvarado, a member of the Third World Liberation Front, which conducted a series of violent student protests in California in the 1960’s, including his quote: “We need a change, we need a change in education if we are ever going to be able to relate to our people in a real way. In elementary schools, in secondary schools, we ourselves need a change — right here.”

Gun Control & Transgenders

The teaching guide’s calendar devotes the month of April to gun control with the quote: “How and why are schoolchildren uniquely and powerfully positioned to demand gun control?”

On transgenders, the teaching guide:

  • Includes a special feature on “15 Everyday Ways to Affirm Trans and Gender Nonconforming (TGNC) Students” to help teachers to stop use terms such as “boys and girls”, “men and women” and “ladies and gentlemen” because they are offensive and oppressive to “those who are neither, both or bits of each”.
  • Quotes “transgender” actor Laverne Cox: “Each and every one of us has the capacity to be an oppressor. I want to encourage each and every one of us to interrogate how we might be an oppressor, and how we might be able to become liberators for ourselves and each other.”

The teaching guide also celebrates the 30th anniversary of Roe v. Wade on April 9, and trashes Thanksgiving, calling it the “National Day of Mourning”, and July 4 by quoting a Sioux author: “The White man must no longer project his fears and insecurities onto other groups, races and countries. Before the White man can relate to others he must forgo the pleasure of defining them.”

VA wants to add ‘gender-reassignment’ surgery to veterans’ benefits package

The Department of Veterans Affairs is considering adding the so-called “sex-reassignment” surgery to military veterans’ benefits package.

That means we taxpayers will have to pay for the surgeries that don’t actually re-assign a person’s gender. That’s because a person’s gender is determined by DNA chromosomes that remain the same after all the torturous body mutilations — chopping off breasts, shaving off the Adam’s apple, castrating the penis and testicles, gouging a hole as a pretend-vagina that must be “dilated” until the wound eventually scars over. See:

Below is a video showing the butchering that claims to be male-to-female gender-reassignment surgery:

Here’s the letter from the vice president of Family Research Council:

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is considering changing its medical benefits package to begin covering sex-reassignment surgery – an elective surgery on the healthy organs of healthy individuals.  They have requested comments on this change and we urge you to speak out on behalf of veterans.

The VA has noted that “any addition to the medical benefits package will have an associated cost and burden on existing specialists, especially urological and vascular surgeons and other highly trained specialists who are already in short supply nationwide.”

Limited resources and funds should be allocated based on medical need and, after analyzing numerous studies, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has refused to label sex-reassignment surgery as medically necessary.

In 2014, the American people were shocked to learn that thousands of patient records at numerous VA facilities across the country were fraudulently maintained to cover-up backlogs that resulted in veterans dying before they received care.  A March 2018 Inspector General investigation found that this problem has not been fully resolved.  More than 5,000 patient records across 64 facilities were found to be incorrectly dated, thus masking the length of time these veterans had been waiting for care.  Also, many patients with accurately dated records were not given the opportunity to seek care outside the VA system – an option to which they are legally entitled after waiting the prescribed 30-day period.

The military should not be subject to social experimentation and engineering and such experimentation and engineering should not bleed over into the care of veterans.

Please comment online by midnight today (9/7) when the comment period closes.

Sincerely,

David Christensen
Vice President for Government Affairs

Alex Jones outed as a tranny pornster?

On August 27, 2018, Memory Hole Blog alerts us to the shocking discovery that Alt-Media giant, Alex Jones of Infowars, may be an aficionado of hardcore “transgender” pornography and, as such, may be compromised because of blackmail.

The discovery comes in the form of a video outtake from a recent Jones broadcast in which he was promoting “personal wellness” products when he clicked away from the products page on his smart phone. For a split second the camera, still trained on his smart phone’s screen, showed an array of open tabs including a still image of a hardcore transvestite porn video, “Naughty T-Babe Melissa Minx and Moka Mora Hot Sex”.

“Tbabe” is a term used to refer to “transgender” porn actors such as Marissa Minx, a so-called MtF (male to female) “transgender” who is really a biological male with breast implants. On his web site, Minx describes himself as a “sexy Australian tgirl” with an average-size penis.

The thumb-nail image on Jones’ smart phone is a crop of this larger image from the tranny porn video, labeled “Big titted T-girl Marissa Minx f*cks a guy”.

Below is a YouTube video on the revelation:

Reporting for the UK Independent yesterday, Aug. 28, Tom Batchelor claims that Alex Jones “made no comment about the page at the time of the video and has yet to respond publicly”. Batchelor crows:

Right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, whose transphobic rants have seen his broadcasts removed from YouTube, unwittingly revealed transgender pornography on his phone….

He has a long history of using his broadcasts to attack the LGBT+ community, suggesting on one occasion that homosexuality was not “normal biological behaviour”….

Addressing drag performers in July, Mr Jones told them: “We’re going to destroy you. You will ascend to Hell in the reverse order. You need to fear god. Your god has stolen your soul.”

More than hypocrisy, if Alex Jones indeed is a tranny pornster, his disgusting fetish may be used to blackmail him. Certainly, there are persistent rumors that he and Infowars are “controlled opposition“. As Dr. James Tracy points out:

Can someone so Janus faced and with such apparent prurient interests be entrusted to carry forth the banner defending free speech? To what degree is Jones blackmailed via such obsessions? Is this perhaps one of the reasons why Jones can’t seem to get the story straight on so many false flag incidents?

This would explain why Infowars first published, then quickly took down a post on Amazon.com banning the book, Nobody Died at Sandy Hook. Infowars even scrubbed the post from the Wayback Machine‘s Internet archive.

Update:

According to Mediaite, today (August 29) a caller into Infowars asked Jones bluntly: “What about the trans porn on your phone Alex, are you going to talk about that?”

Jones said:

“I saw a couple of news articles about that, it’s ridiculous. I was like looking up some reporter we’re trying to hire today and punched in some number and it popped up porn on my phone. Everybody has had porn pop-up on their phone, hundreds of times. So I’m sitting there with a phone on air, showing it to everybody, cause I couldn’t get a URL up in the studio, and then like some thing pops up and oh my god. And I looked at it and it wasn’t — the news blurred it out because it was nothing there. They blurred it to then say something was there, and then you went to it and it was some porn menu. I probably had porn menus pop up 500 times on my phone, so I appreciate your call. It’s insane ladies and gentlemen.

There’s two types of people: People who look at porn and people who lie about it. But I wasn’t looking at porn on my phone. I don’t take phones on air that I look at porn on.”

Question to my readers:

Does porn just “pop up” on your smart phones?

American Library Association approves ‘Drag Queen Story Hour’ for 3-year-olds in public libraries

From TFP Student Action, a project of the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property, August 23, 2018:

STOP Transgender “Drag Queen Story Hour” for 3 Year-Olds in Public Libraries

When “gender fluid” story books replace Little Red Riding Hood, we should ask ourselves:  Has society sunk lower than Sodom and Gomorrah?

Endorsed by the American Library Association, the “Drag Queen Story Hour” has spread to twenty-one states, targeting preschool and grade school children with homosexuality and transgenderism in public libraries.

The Associated Press filmed a “Drag Queen Story Hour” in New York.  “Who wants to be a drag queen when they grown up?” asked the drag queen.  “Meeee!!!” cried the room of little children.

Coloring books used at these immoral programs teach toddlers how to “create your own drag name,” and “circle your pronouns.”

We must not remain silent as this new form of transgender child abuse spreads nationwide.  Speak up now! Protect the little ones.

Please sign your peaceful protest today.
