234 Dems co-sponsor bill to require transgenders to compete in School sports

 

If you think we have not come off the rails completely, try this number. Our special Mr. Nadler has the answer. Let’s see how this goes over with fly-over country. Those with the low sloping foreheads.

This from Mr. Nadler:

“Many states have sexual orientation and gender identity nondiscrimination laws, and all of them still have women’s sports. Arguments about transgender athletes participating in sports in accordance with their gender identity having competitive advantages have not been borne out,” Nadler said in his opening statement.

234 House Democrats- all but one, and Two Republicans think this is a swell idea.

Equality March for Unity

Every House Democrat but one has co-sponsored a bill requiring schools to allow male athletes who identify as transgender girls to compete on female sports teams.

Democrats’ Equality Act would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to make “sexual orientation and gender identity” protected characteristics under federal anti-discrimination law. Among other things, the bill would force public schools to expand female athletic teams to include biological males who identify as transgender girls.

Sarah Warbelow, director of the left-wing Human Rights Campaign, praised the bill’s impact on high school sports in written testimony submitted to a House subcommittee on Tuesday.

“Opponents of equality in athletics for transgender athletes have argued that girls who are transgender have unfair physiological advantages over cisgender girls and as a result, will dominate women’s competitive sports,” Warbelow wrote, calling it not “rooted in fact” that biologically male athletes will outperform their female counterparts.

Then we have this:

Men can compete as women in upcoming Olympics

Put me down as in the unbelievable column. Any male third world athlete hopeful simply has to decrease his testosterone level, still keep his package, and compete in the women’s Olympics. Hmm… the showering bit? How is this going to play out with the women? Here we go:

There’s great news for adventurous male Olympic hopefuls: if they declare themselves women and reduce their testosterone below 10 nmol/L for at least 12 months prior to competition, they can compete against ladies.

There’s even better news for these men; according to transgender guidelines approved by the International Olympic Committee, genitalia does not serve as a prerequisite. The guidelines state: “To require surgical anatomical changes as a pre-condition to participation is not necessary to preserve fair competition and may be inconsistent with developing legislation and notions of human rights.”

The IOC ignores evidence that the fairness of male to female transition still leaves men larger in general than the women they compete against. As Robert S. Beil, M.D., of Montefiore Medical Group, acknowledged, “MTF trans people tend to be bigger, and may have certain strengths from before they started using estrogen.” As noted in a study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine

NYC deliberately gummed up traffic, now will tax the poor devils ‘congestion fees’

 

de Blasio

First NYC gums up the traffic system deliberately a few years ago. Supported by the Obama administration. Not enough pain New Yorkers? Here comes the double whammy. Going to cost you $10 bucks or so to drive into Manhattan. How is all that Progressive stuff working out for you New Yorkers? But anyone paying attention saw this coming.

New York City has intentionally caused the traffic nightmare

If you had any thought that the Progressives were absolutely evil, this should be your confirmation. Back in 2010 we heard what Lahood with the Department of Transportation had in mind for us nationally. Bloomberg and de blasio no doubt got big bucks for New York City in turning the traffic into chaos.

The Setup.  Back in 2010 I wrote a post LaHood: “We are going to “Coerce” people out of their cars 

It’s going to be swell

LaHood signed the new policy directive on March 11. “This is the end of favoring motorized transportation at the expense of non-motorized.”

On May 21, LaHood told reporters at the National Press Club that the “Partnership for Sustainable Communities’ his department had formed with the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Housing—sometimes known as the “livability initiative”–was designed to “coerce” people out of their cars.

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood has announced that federal transportation policies will no longer favor “motorized” transportation, such as cars and trucks, over “non-motorized” transportation, such as walking and bicycling. he effusively described it as a “sea change” for the United States. Get out your sail.

The Implementation:

Time for some traffic problems in Manhattan!  December 2016

City officials have intentionally ground Midtown to a halt with the hidden purpose of making drivers so miserable that they leave their cars at home and turn to mass transit or bicycles, high-level sources told The Post.

Today’s gridlock is the result of an effort by the Bloomberg and de Blasio administrations over more than a decade of redesigning streets and ramping up police efforts, the sources said.

“The traffic is being engineered,” a former top NYPD official told The Post, explaining a long-term plan that began under Mayor Mike Bloomberg and hasn’t slowed with Mayor de Blasio.

“The city streets are being engineered to create traffic congestion, to slow traffic down, to favor bikers and pedestrians,” the former official said.

“There’s a reduction in capacity through the introduction of bike lanes and streets and lanes being closed down.”

The goal of the jammed traffic is to shift as many drivers as possible to public transit or bicycles.

More NY Post with the details of how they are carrying out their plan.

Starting in 2021, drivers will be charged approximately $10 for driving into parts of Manhattan as part of the state’s new budget deal; Laura Ingle has the details.

 

 

Other than this, all is well in the Progressive swamp.

Thanks to WhatFingerNews for the coverage! A great site for all the news.

Ilhan Omar: “To me, the hijab means power, liberation, beauty, and resistance.”

 

I think this sums up the wacko week we just had. Keep in mind we lost Fox host Jeanine Pirro for a couple of weeks over the hijab bit.

 

Other than this, all is well in the swamp. Have a wonderful weekend…..

Georgia Lawmaker Proposes to Regulate Men’s Testicles

 

Today we go from the sublime to the absurd. I am plum wore out with these crazies.

 

A Georgia lawmaker proposed a “testicular bill of rights” package Monday in response to the state’s advancement of a bill to outlaw abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected.

Democratic state Rep. Dar’shun Kendrick seeks to regulate male bodies in response to what she contests is the regulation of women’s wombs.

The bill would require men to ask permission from their partners before taking Viagra or erectile dysfunction medication and wait 24 hours before purchasing a sex toy. The lawmaker wants to classify sex without a condom as “aggravated assault” and ban vasectomy procedures.

Men would also be forced to begin paying child support before a woman reaches eight weeks in pregnancy.

Kendrick announced the legislation on Twitter.

 

Dar’shun Kendrick

@DarshunKendrick

Ggggooooodddd morning! Introducing my “testicular bill of rights” legislative package. You want some regulation of bodies and choice? Done!

Vintage Jerry Lee Lewis –

The benefits of an enlightened society

 

 

The benefits of an enlightened society

  by Mustang  –  Our man on the beat in the UK

 

Matthew Furlong is a fine young man.  He was raised in a good home.  His father is a detective chief inspector whose example motivated his son to one day follow in his footsteps.  And so, Matthew applied himself.  He stayed in school, earned a college degree (in particle physics), and applied for admission to the Cheshire Constabulary.  The application process was an exciting time for Matthew.  He was about to reach his “dream job” … he was going to be a copper, like his Dad.

He passed all the tests.  The interview went pretty well.  Matthew was on a roll.  But then it came time to accept or reject applicants.  Matthew was rejected.  He wasn’t going to get a job in the Cheshire police department.

It wasn’t that Matthew answered wrongly during the interview.  It wasn’t because he lacked a solid degree.  No, Matthew didn’t get the job because of four main factors:  He is white, not black.  He’s straight, not queer.  He’s normal, not a transgender, and he’s not disabled.  He’s also not accepted into the Constabulary.

Matthew did the right thing, though.  He filed a lawsuit against the police department for wrongful discrimination.  And the judge came to the right conclusion in pointing out that the police agency did wrongfully discriminate against Matthew, but if anyone thinks that the police hierarchy is repentant, think again.

After the ruling, the leader of the British police chief’s organization called for radical laws to allow police to positively discriminate in favor of ethnic minority candidates.  The chair of the National Police Chiefs Council, Sara Thornton, said that unless changes are made, the rank and file would remain overwhelmingly white for decades to come.

Apparently, the British police don’t want less crime or justice through the apprehension of criminals … they want more black, gay, sexually confused, or physically disabled street cops.  Meanwhile, violent crime in the UK is rising in leaps and bounds.

Instances of gang-fights with lethal weapons abound.  British citizens are prohibited from defending themselves, and so must rely on the police to do that for them.  When the British call for help, they are likely to wait a long time before anyone shows up, and they’ll have to deal with someone who may not be able or willing to help them.

This is what leftist society calls progress.  We are living in a world of opposite meanings.  Let’s be clear: this isn’t progress.  Citizens know this, but they have no power to change course.  With their inane ideas, people like Sara Thornton and Police Chief Constable Janette McCormick pose a clear and present danger to an orderly, respectful British society, and yet, in spite of this, they are allowed to continue doing irreversible damage to that society.

Matthew Furlong has gotten on with his life.  He has a good job, and I assume he’s making good money.  The problem isn’t resolved, however.  Police agencies controlled by social warriors continue to discriminate against white applicants.  They call this “positive discrimination.”  In the Furlong case, the judge’s ruling doesn’t matter.

The police agency may have to pay Mr. Furlong some compensation, and they will pay if the court so orders (no problem, it’s taxpayer money anyway), but they will not cease and desist their campaign to deny opportunities to straight white men.

If these are the benefits of enlightened British society, let us hope that the virus never makes its way to the United States.

Cook County Officials vote to end gang database permanently

This should work out. Cook county, the infamous county in Illinois, has decided to completely dismantle their database of known or suspected gang members. Officials voted on Thursday to hang it up. Listed were more than 25,000 known or suspected gang members.

With all the new gang bangers – MS 13 – headed our way with our open borders, I would say this is quite timely.  530 people were murdered in Chicago in 2018, with victims ranging in age from 1 to 93. With all the news coming out of Chicago these days, let’s first take a look at Cook County.

Cook County is a county in the U.S. state of Illinois. It is the second-most populous county in the United States after Los Angeles County, California. As of 2017, the population was 5,211,263. Its county seat is Chicago. the largest city in Illinois and the third-most populous city in the United States. More than 40% of all residents of Illinois live in Cook County.

Cook County’s population is larger than that of 28 individual U.S. states, and the combined populations of the seven smallest states.[5]

Wikipedia

According to the Chicago Sun Times.

The Cook County Board voted to destroy the county’s gang database Thursday, setting legal steps and guidelines to make sure the database can’t be restarted.

The vote was the death knell for the contentious database, also called the Regional Gang Intelligence Database. Last month, the Cook County Sheriff’s Office announced it had “terminated” the database, a decision that came after no other law enforcement agency agreed to host it.

The ordinance, which takes effect immediately, prohibits the Cook County Sheriff’s Office from maintaining, re-creating or sharing information on the database. It also mandates the sheriff’s office to “enact the final destruction” of the tool.

Keep in mind  51% of the Murders come from 2% of U.S. Counties

Jussie Smollett – Who are the Osundairo bros? Ola previously charged with attempted murder

 

It’s interesting that after weeks of coverage of Jussie Smollett there has been little discussion of the background of the two participants in the faux attack. “Abel” and “Ola” Osundairo.

Appears to be a Ola Facebook photo

The narrative created is a couple of nice “kids” just coming forth doing the right thing. Choir boys. Doing all they can to make things right. Innocent bystanders in this theater of the absurd. Forget this whole thing wouldn’t have gone down without them.

Maybe Ola, nicknamed “Juice”, may have helped Jussie with a drug or two…for a price. Oh, by the way, Ola had a charge of attempted murder…stabbed a guy… but I am sure it was just a one-off.

I did hear one vague reference that one may have been on probation, but no reason mentioned.

So I scoured what was out there and came up with portions of the following sources:

 

Chicago Sun Times :

…….

Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo were unknown to most of the world until recently, when authorities revealed that the brothers — who are known as “Abel” and “Ola” — were intimately involved in the alleged bogus attack on “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett.

Public records paint a picture of two men in dire financial straits. Olabinjo “Ola” Osundairo, 27, was also no stranger to violence.

Court records show that Olabinjo Osundairo was charged with attempted murder in a 2011 stabbing that occurred in the 4200 block of North Ashland. That is less than a block from the home that police raided in the Smollett investigation, where they recovered personal effects, including cell phones, a source said.

Olabinjo Osundairo reached a plea deal with prosecutors and pleaded guilty to aggravated battery; he was sentenced to two years of probation and ordered to pay a $674 fine. (Ed: It’s Chicago don’t forget.)

……

Court records show both men filed for bankruptcy in September 2016 and collectively owed more than $120,000 in student loans.

At the time, neither brother reported having a full-time job. Their monthly incomes, they said, were $160 and $142, which they earned from various odd jobs.

….

Abimbola Osundairo, in his bankruptcy filing, claimed an interest in investing. He reported that he owned four shares of a pharmaceutical company, one share of Berkshire Hathaway and one share of Alibaba, the Chinese e-commerce company. He valued the shares at $300 at the time, though a single share of Berkshire Hathaway was worth more than $200,000 at the time of the filing.

(Ed: Otherwise known as fraud. Heck doesn’t every guy in the hood have a share or two of Berkshire Hathaway?)

…..

In 2017, Olabinjo Osundairo co-founded a home remodeling company. In his bio on the company’s website, he says he has three degrees, including a master’s degree in business and a bachelor’s degree in management. The other company co-founder could not be reached.

 

AP News

Abimbola Osundairo, 25, graduated from Lake View High School in Chicago, where he participated in football, track and field, soccer, and wrestling, before joining the football team at Quincy University in western Illinois, according to a football profile on the university’s website. Olabinjo Osundairo, 27, also was on the Quincy football team and had attended Latmos Comprehensive College in Lagos, Nigeria, according to his football profile.

The brothers are bodybuilders who have developed an online following and have dabbled in acting and at least one failed business venture, according to social media posts and news reports.

 

It appears that this is Ola’s Facebook though I have not been able to double confirm this, you decide:

In December 2018, Ola uploaded a picture of him and his brother modeling “Winter Face Masks” for $20 to Facebook. The pair also modeled hooded sweatshirts, vests and baseball caps with the logo “Team Abel,” which is Abel’s Instagram handle.

 

Ola and his brother were both football players at Quincy University, having also attended Lakeview High School in Chicago together. According to Ola’s official profile on the school’s website, he played a total of four games at varsity level during his time at the school between 2011 and 2014. In the 2013 season, Ola recorded a solo tackle. That profile describes Ola has having two brothers, one of whom, Abel, was a defensive back for the Quincy Hawks. The bio also says that Ola attended Latmos Comprehensive College in Lagos, Nigeria. The piece names their father as Lanre Osundairo.
