    Poor things.

    No one cares. 🙂


  2. This is what they should have done in the first place, instead of robbing women of a level playing field.

    “FINA Votes To Restrict Transgenders From Women’s Elite Swimming Competitions

    This FINA policy will affect Lia Thomas, who will be unable to compete against biological women in the Olympics but will be able to compete in the new “open” category FINA plans to establish.”


    “FINA, the governing body of professional swimming, has finally voted to restrict biological males’ participation in women’s elite swimming competitions. They plan to have an “open” category in which transgender swimmers can compete.

    ESPN reports (archive link):

    Swimming’s world governing body, FINA, on Sunday voted to restrict the participation of transgender athletes in elite women’s competitions and create a working group to establish an “open” category for them in some events as part of its new policy.

    The new policy, which takes effect Monday, will require transgender competitors to have completed their transition by the age of 12 to be able to compete in women’s competitions. The working group will spend the next six months to determine how to set up the new open category, FINA said.

    “This is not saying that people are encouraged to transition by the age of 12. It’s what the scientists are saying, that if you transition after the start of puberty, you have an advantage, which is unfair,” James Pearce, who is the spokesperson for FINA president Husain Al-Musallam, told The Associated Press. “They’re not saying everyone should transition by age 11; that’s ridiculous. You can’t transition by that age in most countries, and hopefully you wouldn’t be encouraged to. Basically, what they’re saying is that it is not feasible for people who have transitioned to compete without having an advantage.”

    According to ESPN, the policy was passed “with a roughly 71% majority after it was put to the members of 152 national federations with voting rights that had gathered for the congress at the Puskas Arena.”

    Here at LI, we’ve been covering the on-going struggles of women swimmers at UPenn who have been told to “get over” seeing transgender swimmer Lia Thomas’ male genitalia in the women’s locker room and who cannot possibly beat Thomas. The latter point was hit home by Florida governor Ron DeSantis when he unofficially declared Emma Weyant the actual winner of the 500y freestyle swim.”

  3. “Joe Incompetent”


    “When it comes to the Biden Administration, my advice is: forget the ideology, concentrate on the incompetence.

    Yes, the Biden Administration has gone all-in on the leisured Left agenda, throwing its hat in with the race-baiters, icky sexual exotics, climate fanatics, and other wardens of wokeness.

    All that is destructive, not to mention deeply unattractive.

    But even worse than the preening, self-indulgent theatrics of these unhappy would-be censors and commandants is the mind-boggling ineptitude of this administration.

    Thanks to soon-to-be-former Representative Liz Cheney (RINO-Wyo.), we’ve been hearing a lot about January 6, 2021, lately. But not only was that the day that some of Donald Trump’s supporters traipsed around the Capitol building. It was also, as it turns out, a day that provided a nice contrast between the Trump and the Biden Administrations. I am not thinking about the differences in comportment between the two but energy costs under Donald Trump compared with those costs under Joe Biden. Since Biden seems bent on fulfilling his promise to destroy the coal industry and stop all drilling, it is not surprising that the cost of energy has skyrocketed over the last year. One wag sent around a “Never Forget January 6th” notice listing the prices of fuel on that day in 2021:

    Regular gas was $1.99
    Premium was $2.14
    Diesel was $2.21
    Earlier today, I was driving around my town in Connecticut and saw that regular gas was $4.99 9/10 and Diesel was $6.30. In some places in California, gas is flirting with the $10 mark. Maybe Joe wants us all to follow his example and take to the bicycle. His own experience with the machine seems like a metaphor for his entire administration.

    Of course, higher energy costs mean higher everything costs. Bought an airline ticket lately? That’ll cost you 30-40 percent more than it did when Trump left office. Used cars have undergone a similar adjustment upward. Milk, bread, coffee, and eggs are 15-20 percent more now than they were a year ago. Joe Biden says that this isn’t his fault because inflation is raging everywhere in the Western world and, besides, it is worse “everywhere else.”

    But it isn’t worse everywhere else. The latest official inflation rate in the United States is 8.6 percent. (Were inflation calculated the way it was in 1980, it would be about 15 percent.) As Matt Margolis points out at PJ Media, inflation in Germany is currently running at about 7.9 percent, in France at 5.2 percent, in Japan at 2.5 percent, in India at 7.04 percent, in Canada and Italy at 6.8 percent, and in Saudi Arabia at 2.2 percent.

    Margolis links to a painful exchange between Peter Doocy of Fox News and Biden’s remarkable new press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. Why, Doocy wanted to know, was the president saying inflation was worse everywhere else when it wasn’t? Jean-Pierre’s nonanswer was revealing, not just for its mendacity but for its stupidity and its incompetence.

    A lot of the Biden Administration is summed up in Jean-Pierre. If you know anything at all about her, you know that she is the first black lesbian to serve as White House press secretary. That is presented as an accomplishment, but it is nothing of the kind. It’s the same with Ketanji Brown Jackson, the embryo Supreme Court Justice-in-waiting who is tapping her foot until Stephen Breyer retires. What are Jackson’s achievements? Why, she will be the first black female on the Court. But again, that’s not an accomplishment. That is just identity politics in action.

    It turns out that all of Biden’s accomplishments are of this nature: that is, they are not accomplishments at all. They are just politically correct gestures masquerading as policy. Biden’s “historic” sanctions against Russia were supposed to deliver a crippling blow—which they seem to be doing, but against the United States, not Russia. The ruble is at a four-year high, Russia’s gold reserves are among the most robust in the world, and its revenue from oil jumped to $20 billion in May, roughly what it was before Putin invaded Ukraine in February. ”


    Yeah Joe and company sure showed those Russians….


  4. Just another Soros funded prosecutor putting citizens at risk to protect the career criminal. Democrats love doing the bidding of their foreign money man.


    “Habitual Violent Criminal Released From Jail Arrested in Multiple Crimes, Suspect In Brutal Philadelphia Street Assault

    “Law enforcement sources tell FOX 29’s Steve Keeley that White was released from prison in January and has a history of assaulting women prison guards in New York””


    “Malcolm White, 36, has been arrested for an assault and carjacking in Pennsylvania, and police say he is their suspect in a string of assaults on women in Philadelphia.

    The horrendous unprovoked attack on three women was caught on camera.”



    “It’s worth noting that Pennsylvania House Republicans have initiated proceedings to impeach Soros-backed Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner for “widespread lawlessness” in the City of Brotherly Love.”


  5. Hooray for Texas!!!


    “Texas Republicans passed a resolution on June 18 stating that President Joe Biden was “not legitimately elected,” and that “substantial” election fraud in key metropolitan areas influenced the results of the 2020 presidential election in favor of Biden.

    “We believe that the 2020 election violated Article 1 and 2 of the US Constitution, that various secretaries of state illegally circumvented their state legislatures in conducting their elections in multiple ways, including by allowing ballots to be received after November 3, 2020,” stated a resolution passed on Saturday, the last day of a three-day biennial Texas GOP convention held in Houston, the Texas Tribune reported.

    “We believe that substantial election fraud in key metropolitan areas significantly affected the results in five key states in favor of Joseph Robinette Biden Jr,” the resolution continued.

    “We reject the certified results of the 2020 Presidential election, and we hold that acting President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. was not legitimately elected by the people of the United States,” it added.

    The state’s GOP, the largest in the nation, passed the resolution after delegates sat through a Thursday screening of “2000 Mules,” a documentary directed by conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza.

    The movie features the undercover investigative work of David Lara, a citizen investigator, and Arizona State Senate candidate Gary Snyder, as well as investigations conducted by the election integrity organization “True The Vote” on an alleged coordinated ballot trafficking operation during the 2020 election.”

  6. This is just disgusting, yet the media who attacked Trump endlessly for his alleged treatment of grown, adult women has yet to even note these disgusting revelations.

    Gross all around.

    “Examination of Alleged Diary of Ashley Biden Reveals Shocking Details”


    “On Friday night, Tucker Carlson did a deep dive into the alleged diary of Joe Biden’s daughter Ashley which was downright shocking.

    The book was discovered by a woman who took over a rehab center room that had been previously occupied by Ashley Biden and then handed over to Project Veritas.

    I had heard some of the claims associated with the diary, but as I watched Tucker’s report, my jaw was on the floor.

    Sarah Arnold of Townhall has some details:

    Creepy Joe Biden is Back, Tucker Carlson Reveals Shocking Allegations From Ashley Biden’s Diary

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson attacked President Joe Biden over his daughter Ashley Biden’s diary admissions.

    In Ashley Biden’s writings, she claims that the president took showers with her when she was young, fueling her sex-addiction.

    Carlson described the disturbing details as “sick” and “horrifying,” saying “if that’s not child molestation, it is definitely close enough to justify a police visit.”

    Inside a January 2019 diary entry, she wrote “I remember having sex with friends @ a young age; showers w/ my dad.”

    Carlson then asked the audience, “if you are the father of daughters, ask yourself, is there any explanation for that behavior that is justifiable?”
    Tucker also slammed Joe Biden for using the FBI to cover up a family scandal.

    The Daily Mail reported:

    Tucker Carlson slated Joe Biden over claims the president shared a shower with his sex addict daughter when she was young – and slammed the FBI for probing a woman who found and sold a diary containing the revelation…

    He also said the president was effectively using the Feds as his secret police force, after we revealed that Aimee Harris is being investigated over Ashley Biden’s journal, which details her sex addiction and showers she had with her president father.

    Harris hasn’t been arrested or charged – but the Fox News star questioned whey she was being probed over an incident that is not a federal crime…

    Carlson stated that the FBI is more interested in raiding the homes of journalists who brought these allegations to light rather than investigating the allegations themselves.

    Carlson reminded viewers of his Friday night show that in November 2021, federal agents raided the home of a Project Veritas activist and the organization’s founder, James O’Keefe.

    Project Veritas is a right-wing activist group known for their sting videos featuring media personalities, journalists, Democratic politicians and union officials.

    The feds were looking for a copy of Ashley Biden’s diary which they alleged was ‘stolen.’

    Carlson reiterated O’Keefe’s words from the time of the raids: ‘In what world is the alleged theft of a diary investigated by the FBI? Why were they doing this?’

    You can watch the whole segment below, but be forewarned. This is disturbing:”






    But the lapdog media seem uninterested….


  7. But muh narrative….




  8. VDH nails it again….

    “Biden and Oil: Destroy America in Order to Save It

    Our current oil shortage did not arise from a foreign war or tsunami, but from a deliberate policy to curtail oil production to force a more rapid transition to battery-powered transportation.”


    “Try to follow the Joe Biden energy plan of frantically trying to get his hands on more of something that his own party despises.

    During the Democratic primaries, Biden ran on the premise that he would end all fossil fuels during his tenure. In 2019-2020 that bluster seemed easy demagoguery at a time of near-record low gas and diesel prices. The American people shrugged at such utopianism since they often were filling up their cars for less than $50.

    Biden’s video clips from the primary campaign now seem surreal, as he tried to out-green Bernie Sanders in boasting about what has now become his own self-created energy disaster.

    Biden monotonously promised at rallies, such as they were, that he would cancel pipelines, stop new federal leasing to oil and gas companies, persuade lenders to restrict loans to them, put the Alaska National Wildlife Reserve off limits, and embrace the green new deal. Those were certainly campaign boasts that he has followed up on.

    His environmental czar John Kerry has just insulted Americans by lecturing them that there is no need to pump more gas and oil to reduce gas prices that are well over $6 a gallon in many of the Western states. The billionaire Kerry exudes Antoinette disdain for the muscular classes, a hubris that now characterizes the elite rich leadership of the Left in general.

    Kerry and his progressive ilk make no effort to disguise that they feel the credentialed such as themselves, the wealthy, and the progressive enjoy the birthright to fly private, to be limousined, and to bounce between multiple energy-hungry mansions. Those compensations are all necessary, to allow them to focus on the divine task of directing and herding the unthinking and blinkered chumps, dregs, crazies and clingers to do what is for their own good—now most recently defined as paying more than $6 a gallon for gas.

    White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre also reassures the country that there is no reason to pump more oil and gas. Instead, she says, we just need to refine more. At her press conferences, she reads all her answers from prepared notes. But apparently Jean-Pierre’s twenty-something press preppers were oblivious that the United States, thanks to hard-left green opposition, has not built a major refinery since 1976, back when there were 110 million fewer Americans.

    Jean-Pierre has no idea why she cannot now and will never in the future answer a question about fossil fuels honestly. She knows that Left for now got what it wanted. Since January 2021 it has all but destroyed the idea of American energy self-sufficiency.

    Think of the mindset: the Left for decades deliberately restricts refinery capacity; then when the public demands it increase oil production that it has curtailed, it complains that increased pumping would do no good because—there is not enough refinery capacity. Yet Biden remains shocked that his long-sought victory to make fossil fuels unaffordable is despised by the American people, whose votes he now needs to stay in power.

    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg talks of abortion, racist freeway overpasses, mass transit—almost anything other than strapped commuters on clogged roads watching their livelihoods melt away by staggering fuel and energy costs.

    Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm calls “hilarious” any suggestion she might think out of the box to find ways to encourage more energy production. Granholm is right only in that she could not say or do a thing that any CEO or foreign head of state would take seriously.

    So, her administration is panicking that its prior arrogance has insulted, enraged, and alienated 60-70 percent of the country. But political reality to such ideologues does not mean that they will pump or refine more oil. We all know they prefer high gas prices and only object to politically damaging steep climbs before midterm or general elections—rather than, say, continuous dollar-a-gallon increases every six months to a year.

    So how does Biden square his circle of continuing or accelerating policies that ensure high gas prices while trying desperately to lower fuel prices before elections?

    The Biden people have three strategies.

    One is denial and a resort to the blame game. Vladimir Putin supposedly caused the American gas crisis. Take away the Ukraine war, and gas would be what it was during the Trump Administration. But that is not even half-true given the fact that gas and diesel prices had already reached $4.60 a gallon in California, for example, before the Russo-Ukrainian war had begun.

    No matter. The Biden finger-pointing strategy is a shotgun approach with many targets other than the president’s own deliberate efforts to raise fuel prices. Besides the “Putin price hike,” Biden blasts “greedy” oil companies that are price-gouging Americans.

    Perhaps. But if so, why were they not doing that before Biden entered office? Did corporate CEOs love Donald Trump and hate Joe Biden?

    Why do some other corporations, for example the Left’s beloved Apple, earn higher profit margins on their sales than do the large oil companies?

    OK—if Putin and rapacious CEOs are not to blame for the Biden fuel disaster, then how about “refiners”?

    These villains supposedly have all the oil they need, but they strangely refuse to speed up turning crude into gasoline. Again, the Left wants something now that, for political purposes, it had sought to destroy in the past for political purposes.

    To learn why there are now supposedly too few refineries, just review clips from the 2020 Democratic primary debates in which a dozen candidates attacked one another for supposedly appeasing the oil companies that were producing too much fossil fuels.”
