  1. Of course this is harmful to children. Any so-called doctor saying otherwise is lying to push an agenda.

    “Based on very, very poor science”

    “‘THESE CHILDREN ARE VERY MUCH BEING HARMED’ — PEDIATRIC ENDOCRINOLOGIST BLASTS ‘POOR SCIENCE’ BEHIND CHILD TRANSGENDER THERAPY”

    “Dr. Paul Hruz, a pediatric endocrinologist who has written previously about the lack of science behind transgender therapy for children, appeared on “The Ingraham Angle” Friday night to discuss the issue.

    “It’s fairly important to recognize that what is being put forward with the goal of truly helping these individuals that are suffering is based on very poor science and any effort to draw attention to the poor science and the potential very negative and serious consequences that these hormonal interventions really has not been given the attention they deserve,” Hruz said, responding to Fox News host Laura Ingraham’s question about why so little attention has been given to the other side of the issue.”

  2. These people are nuts.

    “It never ceases to amaze me just how disconnected from reality some liberals are. They fight tooth and nail for something or on some point, win, then a few years later, when circumstances have changed, they fight for the exact opposite thing like their original victory never occurred. They insist they are the “party of science,” and demand anything decreed by people in lab coats be adhered to, then deny the most basic elements of biology. It’s beyond hypocrisy, it’s insanity.

    After a pro-life bill was passed in Alabama, the left lost their collective mind. Beyond calling for “sex strikes” and other temper tantrums, many insisted federal law trumps state law. It does, or at least it did.

    Thanks to liberal governors and mayors across the country, states and localities no longer have to adhere to, and actively flout, federal laws they disagree with. Illegal aliens are not only protected by these politicians, they’re catered to. In-state tuition, political appointments, voting in local elections, and a near absolute refusal to alert immigration authorities when illegals are arrested. On this, there is no discussion about the supremacy of federal law, they simply pretend it does not exist.

    Moreover, courts have insulated those jurisdictions from the consequences of their defiance, and journalists have elevated them to hero status. For all intents and purposes, they’ve won the argument that federal law can be disregarded if non-federal politicians so choose. If that is true for immigration, why isn’t it true for abortion?

    Leftists insist “abortion is a Constitutional right,” yet states limit an unambiguous and literal right enumerated in the Bill of Rights – the Second Amendment – all the time, and continue to do so. So why can’t abortion be restricted?

    There are federal drug laws that are explicit, whatever you think of them or how crazy some may seem. Rather than pushing to change them, states are pretending they don’t exist. That they’re openly defying federal law, and reaping massive tax revenue from it, is seen as “progressive,” not defiant.”

  4. Another criminal referral from The Witch Hunt.

    And no, still not Trump.

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/devin-nunes-likely-sending-obstruction-criminal-referral-over-steele-state-department-meeting

    “Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said on Sunday that he may send another criminal referral to the Justice Department.

    During an interview on Fox News, Nunes said notes about a meeting between Trump dossier author Christopher Steele and a State Department official were withheld from the House Intelligence Committee during its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election that wrapped up last year.

    “It’s likely now, as we do our investigation as to why we didn’t get this information that we’ve just been discussing from the State Department two years ago when we should have received it, there could be another referral coming on obstruction a congressional investigation,” he said.”

  5. Everyone knows many were recycling kids and lying to authorities. This is just further proof.

    Too late now, they’ve already “disappeared” into the interior and won’t be showing for their hearing, denial, and deportation.

    “DNA tests reveal 30% of suspected fraudulent migrant families were unrelated”

    “Some of the migrant families arrested at the southern border weren’t actually families.

    In a pilot program, approximately 30% of rapid DNA tests of immigrant adults who were suspected of arriving at the southern border with children who weren’t theirs revealed the adults were not related to the children, an official involved in the system’s temporary rollout who asked to be anonymous in order to speak freely told the Washington Examiner Friday.

    “There’s been some concern about, ‘Are they stepfathers or adopted fathers?'” the official said. “Those were not the case. In these cases, they are misrepresented as family members.”

    In some incidents where Immigration and Customs Enforcement told the adults they would have to take a cheek swab to verify a relationship with a minor, several admitted the child was not related and did not take the DNA test, which was designed by a U.S. company.”

    “U.S. Steel to Invest $1.2 Billion at Pennsylvania Mills

    Investment in Braddock and Clairton plants is aimed at narrowing the cost gap with rivals”

    “United States Steel Corp. outlined plans Thursday for the biggest upgrade of its steelmaking operations in decades by investing more than a $1 billion in its plants near Pittsburgh.

    The centerpiece project aims to reduce the cost and the time to produce sheet steel at the company’s mill in Braddock, Pa.

    The company also intends to build a cogeneration plant at its coking coal ovens in nearby Clairton to decrease emissions by using waste gases from the coking process to generate electricity. The coke plant was damaged by a fire on Christmas Eve that has resulted in elevated releases of sulfur and other emissions while repairs have been under way.”

  7. Guilty by their own standard.

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/william-barr-trump-democrats-obstruction-fleischer

    “As Attorney General William Barr takes pointed criticism from Democrats, those who also claimed President Trump obstructed justice in the Mueller probe “would be guilty themselves” by that metric, Ari Fleischer said Friday.

    “If the Democrats held themselves to the same standards they tried to hold the Trump administration to, they would be guilty of obstruction of justice themselves the way they’re going after the attorney general,” said Fleischer, a former White House press secretary for President George W. Bush, on “The Ingraham Angle.”

    Host Laura Ingraham played several clips of Democrats and media figures blasting Barr as the attorney general gave an exclusive interview to Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer.

    “He acts more and more like the total mouthpiece of the president. It is more than disappointing,” said Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, on CNN. On MSNBC, morning host Joe Scarborough remarked that someone could “slap an ex-KGB badge on the attorney general.”

    The criticisms come after Barr appointed federal prosecutor John Durham to look into the origins of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation into possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

    Fleischer praised the decision to commence the new investigation, and told Ingraham that Barr is “exactly what we need now – [and] to figure out what, if anything, was done improperly when they authorized all of these wiretaps and surveillance techniques to be used against Trump.””

  8. I tried to comment on 6:31, but deleted before I got started.
    What I want to say is not printable.
    Also, I don’t know if it’s utterly evil or utterly stupid to think that chemicals can turn a boy into a girl. It seems to me that this is always the direction.
    I never heard of a woman wanting to play football or run in a man’s race.

  9. I may have told you this before.
    Once I was flying home on a business trip. The plane was landing at Memphis, Tn. I noticed that it was coming in high. Suddenly, the plane went into climb power. I said to the female in the middle seat. “We’re aborting landing, going around again.” She said, “is that bad?” I said, “Going around again is always the right decision.”

    Likewise, deleting your comment is always the right decision.
    If in doubt? delete. Don’t let emotion overrule good sense.

  10. Sooner or later, they turn on each other. 🙂

    “The Wolves Turn On Each Other

    Now we turn to the real unspoken question: how did it happen that the top machinery of the U.S. government meddled in an election, and sought to sabotage a presidential transition and early presidency?

    Note well: none of the leveraged targets of Robert Mueller turned state’s evidence to accuse Donald Trump of “collusion,” the object of the special counsel’s investigation, although to have done so would have mightily helped their cause and given them John Dean iconic status among leftists. In contrast, we have scarcely begun to investigate wrongdoing at the intelligence and justice departments and already the suspects are fingering each other.

    James Clapper, John Brennan, and James Comey are now all accusing one another of being culpable for inserting the unverified dossier, the font of the effort to destroy Trump, into a presidential intelligence assessment—as if suddenly and mysteriously the prior seeding of the Steele dossier is now seen as a bad thing. And how did the dossier transmogrify from being passed around the Obama Administration as a supposedly top-secret and devastating condemnation of candidate and then president-elect Trump to a rank embarrassment of ridiculous stories and fibs?”

    Given the narratives of the last three years, and the protestations that the dossier was accurate or at least was not proven to be unproven, why are these former officials arguing at all? Did not implanting the dossier into the presidential briefing give it the necessary imprimatur that allowed the serial leaks to the press at least to be passed on to the public and thereby apprise the people of the existential danger that they faced?

    Why would not they still be vying to take credit for warning President Obama that Donald J. Trump was a likely sexual pervert, with a pathological hatred of Obama, as manifested in Trump’s alleged Moscow debauchery—a reprobate who used his subordinates to steal the election from Hillary Clinton and who still must somehow be stopped at all costs?

    That entire bought fantasy was the subtext of why Mueller was appointed in the first place. It was the basis for the persistent support to this day among the media and progressives for the now discredited notion of “collusion.””

    “The attempted entrapment of George Papadopoulos by the FBI and possibly the CIA, apparently as an excuse to trigger surveillance of the Trump presidential campaign, may turn into the “smoking gun” that exposes the depth of corruption of the Deep State Russia Hoax. Trey Gowdy, the retired congressman from South Carolina, was, until 2018, chairman of the House Oversight and Investigations Committee, who was able to view classified information uncovered by the GOP congressional investigations when the party enjoyed a majority in the House of Representatives.”

    “He is constrained as to what he can reveal about those documents, but yesterday, speaking with Maria Bartiromo on her Sunday-morning FNC program, Sunday Morning Futures (which has become essential viewing for keeping up with emerging developments in the Russia Hoax), he revealed the existence of transcripts that could be game-changers.”

  12. Time to add them to The Endangered Species List.

    “Justice Democrats, the group that championed far-left progressives like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Coretz (D-NY) in the last election cycle and is now challenging the DCCC and DNC for cutting openly progressive campaign workers out of official directories, agreed that pro-lifers now have no place in the Democratic party and that they intend to fight for their exclusion.

    “It’s hypocritical for the Democratic Party leadership to continue to protect [pro-life Dems] while claiming to fight against the attacks on reproductive rights in states like Georgia and Alabama.” Waleed Shahid, Justice Dems communications director told the Daily Beast.

    There are technically only five “pro-life Democrats” left: Rep. Dan Lipinkski (D-IL), Rep. Collin Peterson (D-MN) and Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) in the House, and Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Bob Casey (D-PA) in the Senate.”

    ——————–

    And while Casey claims to be pro-life, he votes against abortion restrictions at every opportunity to take a stand. So he’s pro-life mostly in name only. There’s no conviction behind it.
