The transgender bathroom case arrives
at the Supreme Court

Hot Air, by Jazz Shaw

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 1/11/2017 8:28:04 AM

Back in October I wrote about the announcement that the Supreme Court would be hearing the case of G.G. v. Gloucester County School Board. This is the long awaited “transgender bathroom law” challenge to the Obama administration’s reinterpretation of Title IX law which sought to morph the definition of “sex” to include the SJW concept of gender identity. At the time I expressed concern over both how a split court might rule on the science behind the question as well as the possibility that they would dodge the fundamental questions entirely and choose to narrowly rule on the legal mechanics.

#2 son, relentlessly liberal, visited over the weekend. He was a strong supporter of Lsady Lucifer, so naturally, I put up some displays making fun of her.
We did have an interesting mdiscussion about this tranny issue - he cautioned me to say ´trans´ rather than tranny, for PC purposes.
I asked him why this had become a national issue, and said that during the 40s and 50s, there were few of that ilk, and now there seem to be alot of them.
My son, an actor, has had full exposure to the gay community. And his answer about trannys was interesting.
He said that there are mentally ill people who, in desperation, try changing sex, either surgically or non surgically, to find peace. And when they do it, and it doesn´t bring them peace, some of them kill themselves, others become activists. (The NYC Human Relations Commission has 33 different tranny classifications. All are protected under their law.)

Do we really want the Supreme Court assigning toilet facilities?

As a kid in WV my family were pioneers in this stuff. Grandpa had 5 outhouses out back. One for the nut down the road who voted for FDR, and another for the nut on the hill who could look into the windows of those below. Then one for the queer who lurked downtown. And two for him and grandma since both were of the age that he needed two to always be available for them.

I´d ask the SCOTUS this: if a contractor "identifies as a woman" shouldn´t he be eligible for contracts with set asides for minority contractors?

Gloucester is a small town. Since this case made the news, I don´t remember anyone interviewing the locals on their opinion.

Goodbye, Obama
Reason, by Gene Healy    Original Article

In the presidency´s long march toward full-spectrum dominance over American life, the POTUS has become, among other things, host in chief of our national talk show. Barack Obama fulfilled that role better than most. Our 44th president never seemed more completely in his element than when trading zingers at the annual White House Correspondents Dinner. We find it reassuring somehow to be reminded that the guy with the kill list has a sense of humor. At the 2015 version of the annual press and pols confab, Obama got one of his bigger laugh lines when he joked: "Dick Cheney says he

Tillerson to testify Russia must be

In his first public remarks as President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee to be secretary of state, former ExxonMobile chief executive Rex Tillerson will say he believes Russia is “a danger” and that NATO allies are right to be alarmed by its aggression. But he makes no mention of Moscow’s interference in the U.S. election campaign or the future of U.S. sanctions. “I come before you at a pivotal time in both the history of our nation and our world,” Tillerson will testify before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Wednesday morning in an opening statement that lays out a realist and tough view

No Snags for Sessions at
Confirmation Opening

Republican senators on Tuesday heaped praise on their colleague Jeff Sessions during his confirmation hearing to be the next U.S. attorney general, sending a strong signal that the Alabama lawmaker is likely to pass muster in the full Senate. Democrats, skeptical of Sessions on issues ranging from civil rights to immigration to abortion and same-sex marriage, questioned him carefully on his tenure both as a senator and U.S. attorney and appeared to be mostly opposed to his confirmation. In the hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sessions offered some insight into how he would run the Department of Justice, suggesting he would

Before the president from Chicago
says farewell, there´s disappointment

For all the gooey talk about President Barack Obama´s legacy, it can probably best be described in four blunt words: Disappointment. And Donald Trump. What we can´t measure, not completely, not yet, is the inspiration he´s given to millions of people — particularly to African-Americans — who years ago couldn´t dare dream that a black man would ever be elected president. And we can´t measure what his presidency has triggered in the minds and imaginations of the young. It´s all part of his charm that offered hope for future generations, and the long lines of proud families waiting to see him speak Tuesday

What Exactly Is Trumpism?

Donald Trump is hated by liberal Democrats because, among other things, he is likely to reverse the entire Obama project. And, far worse, he probably will seek fundamental ways of obstructing its future resurgence — even perhaps by peeling off traditional Democratic constituencies. The proverbial mainstream media despise Trump. Culturally, he has become a totem of their fears: coarseness, ostentatiousness, flamboyance, and the equation of big money with taste and success. His new approach to the media may make them irrelevant, and they fear their downfall could be well earned. The Republican Washington–to–New York establishment is alienated by Trump. It

Democrats’ opposition to Trump
is lame, lazy and leaderless
Washington Post, by Ed Rogers    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 1/10/2017 7:51:32 AM     Post Reply
It is a tough time to be a Democrat. The weeks that follow a defeat at the ballot box are never flattering for the losers, but this time around, the Democrats seem to be particularly demoralized. Their melancholy and fatigue appear to be getting worse. Their opposition to President-elect Donald Trump and the Republicans is lame, lazy and leaderless. Eventually they will get their game back, but I admit to feeling some satisfaction watching them struggle as the confirmation hearings for Trump’s Cabinet picks get underway. Jeff Sessions (R), my senator from Alabama, appears to be waltzing to his confirmation as

Barbra Streisand blasts Donald Trump:
´I completely agree with Meryl´

Barbra Streisand is standing with Meryl Streep, who used her acceptance speech at Sunday´s Golden Globe Awards to criticize Donald Trump for lacking empathy and infamously mocking a disabled reporter in 2015. A day after Streep delivered her blistering rebuke of the president-elect, Streisand called in to Hardball With Chris Matthews and expressed her solidarity. I thought that [Streep] said what she said beautifully, Streisand remarked. Regarding Trump´s ridiculing of journalist Serge F. Kovaleski 14 months ago, Streisand added, I completely agree with Meryl. It was a heartbreaking moment and so beneath the dignity of the presidency, let alone any respectful person.

Senator John McCain passed documents to the FBI director, James Comey, last month alleging secret contacts between the Trump campaign and Moscow and that Russian intelligence had personally compromising material on the president-elect himself. The material, which has been seen by the Guardian, is a series of reports on Trump’s relationship with Moscow. They were drawn up by a former western counter-intelligence official, now working as a private consultant. BuzzFeed on Tuesday published the documents, which it said were “unverified and potentially unverifiable”.

Sworn Donald Trump enemy John McCain admitted Wednesday that he passed the dossier of claims of a Russian blackmail plot against the president-elect. The Arizona senator issued a public statement amid mounting questions of his exact role in the affair - and how a document riddled with errors and unverifiable claims came to be published. ´Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public,´ he said. ´Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the Director of the FBI. ´That has been the extent of

President Obama, as he concluded his farewell address in Chicago on Tuesday, called the U.S. Constitution “just a piece of parchment." “Our Constitution is a remarkable, beautiful gift,” said Obama. “But it’s really just a piece of parchment.” “It has no power on its own,” he went on. “We the people give it power. We the people give it meaning with our participation and with the choices that we make and the alliances that we forge…” He later said that as he steps down from the presidency, he plans to play an active role in "the most important office in a democracy: citizen."

Hillary Clinton’s political career is probably over, but just because she lost the presidential election to Donald Trump doesn’t mean she wasn’t prepared to win. Axios reporter Mike Allen has revealed Hillary’s list of prospective nominees for important cabinet posts in her administration, and it includes a number of interesting choices. John Podesta, her campaign chairman who accidentally exposed his entire email account to Russian hackers, was listed as the frontrunner to be Hillary Clinton’s secretary of state. Vice President Joe Biden was reportedly also being considered for the position. Facebook executive and Lean In author Sheryl Sandberg was in

Fox News anchor Shepard Smith on Wednesday criticized President-elect Donald Trump for his shouting match with a CNN reporter. (Snip) "President-elect Trump today told CNN´s Jim Acosta the his organization amounts to fake news. CNN´s exclusive reporting on the Russian matter was separate and distinctly different from the document dump executed by an online news property," Smith said during his closing monologue. "Though we at Fox News cannot confirm CNN´s report, it is our observation that it´s correspondents followed journalistic standards and that neither they nor any other journalists should be subjected to belittling and delegitimizing by the president-elect of the

So the website BuzzFeed decided to publish a series of memos that have been floating around for months alleging all kinds of terrible things about Donald Trump. Some of those terrible allegations have to do with efforts to influence the American elections and Trump. Some of them have to do with Trump’s personal sexual conduct. Readers of this newspaper know well not to include me among Trump’s supporters. But the scurrilousness of what BuzzFeed has done here is so beyond the bounds of what is even remotely acceptable it should compel even those most outraged by Trump’s political excesses to come to
