Court Strikes Down Transgender Mandate,
Protecting Doctors, Children, and Hospitals

Daily Signal, by Lori Windham

While family and friends were counting down to the new year, I was watching a different kind of countdown—whether doctors and health care providers would be forced to violate their medical judgment and provide procedures, including gender transition services and abortions, under a new government mandate. The mandate is a 362-page regulation that claims to interpret part of the Affordable Care Act. It was issued in May 2016, and major portions of this mandate would have kicked in on Jan. 1. Becket Law had asked a Texas court for an order protecting health care providers. It was less than nine hours to

Comments:
Sheer insanity. Doctors could have lost their jobs for refusing to perform sex-change surgery on children.

This is what was going on during Obama´s reign of insanity.

Medical Correctness
The New Criterion, by Anthony Daniels    Original Article

In Russia in 1839, Custine wrote that Tsar Nicholas I was both eagle and insect: eagle because he soared over society surveying it with a sharp raptor’s eye from above, and insect because he bored himself into every tiny crack and crevice of society from below. Nothing was either too large or too small for his attention; and sometimes one feels that political correctness is rather like that. For the politically correct, nothing is too large or too small to escape their puritanical attention. As a consequence, we suspect that we are living an authoritarian prelude to a totalitarian future.

For reasons that remain inexplicable to me, I somehow wound up on the mailing list of a wacko left-wing organization called the Alliance for Justice. (Snip) No, the AFJ is to be commended not on account of what it wants to do — what they propose is just the usual rancid menu of hysterical, prosperity-and freedom-blighting left-wing nostrums — but rather the celerity with which they recommend action. "We need to be ready to fight the moment Trump takes office." That´s good advice. But on the Goose/Gander principle, it´s good advice for the impending Trump administration, too. The perpetually discontented folks at

25 years ago George Bush Sr. was still in office, and so was Saddam Hussein. (Snip) The textbook date of the end of the USSR is December 26, 1991, but for us, Soviet citizens, the dissolution began a few months earlier and happened in stages. Very few people feared or believed the Communists any longer, ridiculing their institutions and their lying media. A typical political joke at the time was about a man who always complained that Communists had run out of everything - food, toilet paper, consumer goods, and so on. So the KGB brought him to their office and

Man of the Year: Chief Trump
Strategist Stephen K. Bannon

TIME magazine named Donald Trump “Person of the Year” for 2016, and we could have done the same. But this would have been to over-simplify a victory that millions of Americans believe has brought this nation back from the brink of destruction, and has done so against what seemed impossible odds. (Snip) A former naval officer, investment banker, movie producer, documentary filmmaker, and publisher of the online news giant Breitbart.com, Bannon was a kindred spirit to Trump and also a complementary one. “I come from a blue-collar, Irish Catholic, pro-Kennedy, pro-union family of Democrats,” Bannon said in a Bloomberg Businessweek

Infantile Rage on the Left
American Thinker, by James Lewis    Original Article

It was Anna Freud, Sigmund Freud´s daughter, who first described the most common ego defenses in detail. Later, scientists and clinical psychiatrists expanded the list of accepted defense mechanisms and did much improved research, like Harvard´s George Vaillant. There is good agreement on a basic set of ego defenses, like denial, displacement (blaming), and rationalization. Ego defenses distort reality in some way, from very mild defenses like rationalization to "primitive" defenses like massive denial of reality and fantasy-driven thinking. These defenses are fairly easy to spot when people can´t cope or feel very anxious or overwhelmingly confused. Ego defenses protect

Thank You, Professor Sowell

I first read Thomas Sowell in college -- no thanks to my college. At the majority of America´s institutions of "higher learning," reading Thomas Sowell was a subversive act in the early 1990s when I was a student. It remains so today. Why? Because the prolific libertarian economist´s vast body of work is a clarion rejection of all the liberal intelligentsia hold dear. Among the left´s most corrosive ideas is the concept of perpetual and permanent racial victimhood, which social engineers pretend to rectify through federally mandated, taxpayer-subsidized preferential policies. Sowell´s groundbreaking academic analyses of these programs in the U.S. and around

A group of more than 1,100 law school professors from across the country is sending a letter to Congress on Tuesday urging the Senate to reject the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) for attorney general. The letter, signed by professors from 170 law schools in 48 states, is also scheduled to run as a full-page newspaper ad aimed at members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will be holding confirmation hearings for Sessions on Jan. 10-11. “We are convinced that Jeff Sessions will not fairly enforce our nation’s laws and promote justice and equality in the United States,” states the letter,

With just over two weeks left in office, President Barack Obama wants you to know that for him it’s “always been about you.” “In 1796, as George Washington set the precedent for a peaceful, democratic transfer of power, he also set a precedent by penning a farewell address to the American people. And over the 220 years since, many American presidents have followed his lead,” Obama said in a blog post about the speech he plans to deliver in Chicago on Jan. 10. He added: “I’m just beginning to write my remarks. But I’m thinking about them as a chance

Megyn Kelly is leaving Fox News. The popular host of The Kelly File, who many saw as the future of the network, has taken a job with NBC. In a statement released on Tuesday, NBC revealed that Kelly, 46, will anchor a one hour daytime program running Monday through Friday on the network, along with a Sunday evening news magazine show. She will also be involved in the network´s political and breaking news coverage. ´Megyn is an exceptional journalist and news anchor, who has had an extraordinary career,´ NBC Chairman Andrew Lack said of his high-profile hire. ´She’s demonstrated tremendous skill

Donald Trump used his Twitter bully pulpit on Monday to blast Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel for allowing his city´s murder and firearms shooting rates to spiral out of control. ´Chicago murder rate is record setting – 4,331 shooting victims with 762 murders in 2016,´ Trump tweeted. ´If Mayor can´t do it he must ask for Federal help!´ 2016 was one of the most violent years in Chicago history with the most homicides in two decades – more than New York and Los Angeles combined. The nation´s third largest city also saw 1,100 more shooting incidents last year than it did in

NBCUniversal will spend millions of dollars each year for the next few in the hopes that Megyn Kelly can succeed in areas in which she’s never been tested: daytime talk and Sunday newsmagazines. (Snip)And yet, Kelly’s current halo does not necessarily mean she can also triumph over splintered broadcast-TV audiences and tired formats. Those are hurdles she and NBC will have to leap over in the months to come. NBC said it intends to place Kelly in a new Monday-through-Friday daytime hour set to launch sometime over the coming year. To accomplish that feat, NBC would have to either take time from

With just a few weeks before President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, he’s going to take office in a historically weak position, according to a Gallup survey released Monday. Less than half of people in the U.S., 46 percent, said they’re confident in Mr. Trump’s ability to handle an international crisis and 47 percent said they’re confident in his ability to use military force wisely. The poll also found 44 percent said they are confident in his ability to prevent major scandals in his administration. At least 70 percent of people were confident in President Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton

Megyn Kelly, who arrived at Fox News 12 years ago as a television news neophyte but rose to become one of its two biggest stars, has decided to leave the network to take on a broad new role at NBC News for an undisclosed amount, people briefed on the negotiations said on Tuesday. The NBC News chairman, Andrew Lack, wooed Ms. Kelly away from Fox News by offering her a triple role in which she will host her own daytime news and discussion program, anchor an in-depth Sunday night news show and take regular part in the network’s special political programming
