Ilhan Omar wants Keith Ellison to Investigate USA POWERLIFTING Ban on Biological Males from Women’s Events

 

It’s curious as to what motivated our gal Rep Ilhan Omar to wade into this nightmare. She wants her Muslim guy pal Ellison to go after USA Powerlifting for barring males from competing in women’s events.

In her letter to Ellison in support of this investigation, third paragraph down, the operative sentence.

… “follow the example of the International Olympic Committee.”

This caught my eye from a post a couple of years ago:

Men can compete as women in upcoming Olympics

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.”

Let’s just set aside the dressing and showering issues alone.

 

WASHINGTON — Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar recommended Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison investigate USA Powerlifting for barring biological males from women’s events, according to a Jan. 31 letter she sent USA Powerlifting.

Omar called it a “myth” that men who identify as transgender women have a “direct competitive advantage” and copied Ellison on the letter, “with a recommendation that he investigate this discriminatory behavior.” (RELATED: Biological Male Wins World Championship In Women’s Cycling)

Omar sent her letter on behalf of JayCee Cooper, a biological male who identifies as a transgender woman, and whom Omar identified as one of her constituents. She signed the letter on Jan. 31, though it only became public on Tuesday after Cooper posted a picture to Instagram, where it caught the attention of OutSports.

Ace speculates as to why our gal is after women’s sports. How about his thought?

Why is Ilhan Omar, of all people, jumping on this issue?

Is this because she’s an extreme intersectionalist leftwinger? Or is it because she harbors the usual Islamic notions of what a woman should be and what a woman shouldn’t be, and doesn’t mind the notion of destroying women’s sports altogether?

Maybe women shouldn’t be doing Manly things like sports. Maybe they should just be servicing their husband and making dinner with their husband’s other wives.

Olympics Will Allow Transgender Competitors for 2018 Winter Games

 

I wonder when the left will take it one bridge too far. It puts all Progressive women in a bind. All for tranny rights, but competing in sports? I have been amazed when talking to bright intelligent women that they find no risk in having so called trans boys/men going into girls and women’s locker rooms. I suggest that the Olympics might do it as these hybrids take the Gold from women in women’s competition.

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

NBC and their love affair with ‘History’s pivotal experiment’ – Russia

PJ Media brings us the NBC narrative of the wonders of the Hammer and Sickle of the grand empire Russia. As if we could not have one moment of non propaganda during the Olympics, first we have Dear Leader on, then the historical nonsense of this evil empire that slaughtered millions of its people. Great video over at the link. Just in case one missed it.

“The towering presence, the empire that ascended to affirm a colossal footprint. The revolution that birthed one of modern history’s pivotal experiments. But if politics has long shaped our sense of who they are, it’s passion that endures. As a more reliable right to their collective heart. What they build in aspirations lifted by imagination. What they craft, through the wonder of every last detail. How magical the fusion of sound and movement can be. How much a glass of distilled perfection and an overflowing table can matter. Discover the Russian people through these indelible signatures. Discover what we share with them through the games that open here tonight.”

George Orwell, call your office. As he wrote in “Politics and the English Language,” in 1946, such euphemisms are “designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable,” and certainly describing Communism as “one of modern history’s pivotal experiments” fits the bill in spades. Or as Stacy McCain accurately described it this week at the American Spectator, “The Worst Idea in the World”:

No Women Ski Jumpers in upcoming Olympics

Our loss–Well, maybe when the Olympics move to Russia?

Curling is much more fun. Thats the one where they have that thingy where some guys use a couple of brooms and sweep away to some assine goal which no one understands. The women were rejected in 2006 when the International Olympic Committee (IOC) added only one event, ski cross—head-to-head downhill racing that prides itself on being chaotic. Too few ski jumpers was the reason, said the IOC. The women argued numbers: 83 competitors at the elite level from 14 countries, more women than for ski cross, bobsled, snowboard cross, luge or skeleton, according to Women’s Ski Jumping USA, nonprofit volunteers supporting the athletes.

But why would the IOC bar women ski jumpers? Women’s Ski Jumping Vice President Vic Method has a theory: “This is a big macho event in Europe. If suddenly you’ve got these little size-four girls jumping comparable distances, the men don’t look so macho anymore.” When the Vancouver ski jump opened in 2008, Lindsey Van of the U.S. out-jumped the men, setting the record of 105.5 meters on the new 95-meter jump and promising Olympic drama now denied, or at least delayed.

Men have been ski jumping since the early 1800s and were part of the first winter Olympics in 1924. The event is spectacular and scary, especially on the biggest hills. A lone skier sits on a bar atop a 215-meter hill (that’s about 705 feet high). He pushes off and speeds down the 382-foot, snow-covered surface at 64 miles an hour. Then suddenly he’s airborne, flying as far as 784 feet, 40 feet high, hitting the ground with such force that, when things go wrong, we’re reminded of that old “Wide World of Sports” footage about “the agony of defeat.”

Women—ski jumping since the 1880s and in FIS-sanctioned events since 1998—take the same risks as the men. The technical difficulty of their events is the same and their performances are comparable, but they don’t get to compete on the sport’s biggest stage, the Olympics.

CHICAGO OUT!

That didn’t take long.

“The shock of Chicago’s elimination was greater for the fact that it came in the first round. And greater for the fact that President Obama had taken valuable hours from his packed and tense political schedule to travel to Copenhagen. His legendary powers of persuasion will be said to have failed him, though in reality it will be Chicago’s bid that failed him. Nonetheless, this is a moment which allows the president’s detractors to allege waning prestige on the part of his presidency. And it will raise questions about the political advice that he is receiving.”

His wife tugged at IOC members’ heart strings by discussing her late father, who had multiple sclerosis. She recounted sitting on his lap, watching Olympians such as Carl Lewis and Nadia Comaneci compete, and how her father “taught me how to throw a ball and a mean right hook.”

“My dad would have been so proud to witness these games in Chicago,” she said.    Guess What? No one gives a………   bye bye, now you can go back to D.C. and decide what to do with our soldiers for a change.

Iranian Born Valerie Jarrett- Olympic contracts Whitewash

Criminals_Michelle_Obama_Oprah_Winfrey

Our Iranian  born Jarrett’s corruption is widespread. As Bunkerville Previously reported. Rumor’s are she is slated to head the olympics if  U.S. wins out. Get Ready!And, of course, she is the current de facto Olympics czar in the White House! Wait until she gives out all those contracts. Mayor Daley would be proud.

Check out our previous Bunkerville stories:  “Iranian Valerie Jarrett- getting to know you”, which includes her Iranian background, and the “Valerie Jarret bringing home the Olympic Corruption” posted on the right under top posts. To say she has nothing to gain– this is Chicago- I will believe it when I see it!

Jarrett’s former slum-breeding real estate firm, The Habitat Company, still stands to benefit from Olympic Village contracts:

The biggest building project by far would be the Olympic Village, to be constructed on land the city has agreed to buy for $86 million. The city will use an unspecified amount of property tax revenues to pay for infrastructure costs such as new streets and sewers for the development, which would be turned into a new residential community even if the city doesn’t win the Olympics.

Jarrett presided over the gross deterioration of public housing. Many of the same city housing officials who stood watch over these failures are now on the 2016 bid committee with interest-conflicted developers like Michael Scott Jr. Martin Nesbitt, Jarrett’s old family friend and Obama’s finance chair, is currently on the panel and head of the Chicago Housing Authority.

The untold story is the “public-private partnership” racket between developers and Chicago government of which Jarrett was an integral part. As de facto Olympics czar, she has used White House authority, staffing, and budget to push for the mass redistribution of wealth from ordinary citizens to Chicago’s richest power brokers and real estate moguls.

Some “ideal.”

Eleven developers have already expressed interest in the property, including Joseph Freed & Associates, Magellan Development Group, Related Midwest and a team made up of Enterprise Development, Fogelson Properties and Forest City Enterprises, of Cleveland. Another interested party is Habitat Co., whose former chief executive was Valerie Jarrett. Before becoming a senior adviser to President Barack Obama, Jarrett was a vice chairman of the Chicago bid team.
