Boy Scouts Will Admit Girls,
Allow Them to Earn Eagle Scout Rank

NBC News, by Pete Williams

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 10/11/2017 1:11:55 PM

The Boy Scouts of America announced Wednesday that girls will soon be allowed to become Cub Scouts and to earn the coveted rank of Eagle Scout, the organization’s highest honor. "We believe it is critical to evolve how our programs meet the needs of families interested in positive and lifelong experiences for their children," said Michael Surbaugh, chief executive of the Boy Scouts. The scouting board of directors voted unanimously to make the historic change in an organization that has been primarily for boys since its founding more than 100 years ago. Starting next year, young girls can join Cub Scout units, known as dens.

Comments:
This could be good for the transsexuals they must allow, as well. Will they wear kilts to be inclusive? Be prepared...to welcome them into your lair. s/o.

This decision is really going to confuse all of the pervert scoutmasters out there as to which organization to join. Or perhaps it just doubled their options. I would say that another American tradition just went down the drain but both Boy and Girl Scouts have been infiltrated by liberals and LGBT leadership for a long time. Not for my kids.

This is ridiculous. But, it is the first step in more change to the Boy Scouts where they must change their training, their philosophy and their focus to placate the females that are let in. What´s the matter with the girl scouts?

What could happen with 16 and 17 year old boys and girls camping in tents together in the middle of the night when the adult leaders are snoozing? Nothing to see there in the transgender era.

What do you call the Boy Scouts once girls start joining it? It would not really be the BOY Scouts now would it? Just SCOUTS?

I´m betting there will be a lot more going on at the next Jamboree than singing Kum-ba-ya. Mixing teenage boys and girls . . . might lead to BABY Scouts.

This change in admittance will open a whole new dimension on underwear, wedgie and short sheets raids at camp.

How will the Scout Leaders control the boys, the boys who think they are girls and the girls who are girls, think I got the PC of it all.

Going to get mighty confusing. P.S. How will tent partners be selected now that you have all these hormonal kids going pubescently crazy?

Interested Scout Masters want to know.

The NFL, MLB, and NBA should admit women players too under "disparate impact", i.e. too many of one gender. And allow a certain quota of wheelchair players too. Should make for interesting play calling and strategies.

This is no longer the organization that I grew up with. Teaching boys to be men, teaching them life skills, first aid, civil, national and global citizenship. Putting God and Country first.

In a world where real men are castigated and ostracized as a sport, and who are never more needed than now, this makes me sad.

Good way to continue the drive to eliminate the idea of men, maleness, masculinity. And it´s not just to let kids be kids. It´s to make little boys into androgynous creatures and little girls into mini feminists.

Just more of the war against boys.

Where can a boy go now just to be with the boys? To be what they are, to enjoy camaraderie? What´s wrong with that? Girls are allowed to do it. Any kind of racial minority can do it.

This isn´t about homosexuality or anything sexual. It´s just about denying boys the right to be what they are, to enjoy life and growing up without apology.

So long, Boy Scouts. This will end it. Over a century of turning boys to respectable young men, done in by political correctness and insidious anti-male feminism.

Just because some organizations have histories and familiar names and logos does not mean they should exist in perpetuity.

The Boy Scouts, the NFL, various foundations, public school districts, etc.

When an outfit can no longer uphold its own standards it deserves extinction.

I was a scout in the early 70´s and it was being ruined by then. It was essentially "city scouts". They had all sorts of merit badges for things that could be done without ever seeing a tree or a stream, and the woods skills were being de-emphasized.
They have outlived their usefulness.

That´s the beginning of the end of a once great organization that helped me become who I am.

All things masculine are under attack. Turning boys into men must not be tolerated. What better way to conquer a powerful nation than to rot out the roots of power from within. It really doesn´t matter if it´s a grand plan from an outside entity or not, the effect is the same.

And while we are at it, in case you missed it, there has been a war on women going on too, some women. Women who would prefer to be stay at home moms have been looked down on for decades. It´s the entire family unit that is under siege to be destroyed and replaced by big government.

Fun on campouts.

This is intended to finally destroy the Boy Scouts, which has always been a force for teaching boys to be strong, good, patriotic, capable MEN - everything that the left despises and wants to stomp out of society so that they can have a bunch of wimps and drones to lord over.

I´m guessing that the unspoken reality here is that membership in the Boy Scouts plummeted when they surrendered to the gaystapo a few years ago.

It´s "get new members wherever you can" or just die quietly and quickly.

Be Prepared! That´s the boy scout marching song,
Be prepared, as through life you march along,

If you´re looking for adventure of a new and different kind,
and you come across a girl scout who is similarly inclined,
Don´t be nervous, don´t be frightened, don´t be scared!
Be prepared.

This should help complete the process of feminizing the American male. Starting at an early age. Like the Ritalin use on little boys in the schools. And I don´t doubt that this would meet with the full approval of Rex Tillerson who used to be in charge of the Boy Scouts when they decided to allow gay scout masters into the fold to ´lead´. And whatever else they deem fit do.

DECEMBER 14, 2016
WASHINGTON
The Boy Scouts of America is not a progressive group, and implementing change is tough.

The massive youth organization, based in Irving, Texas, is a highly decentralized mass of thousands of nonprofits – 70 percent of which are controlled by religious institutions.

And from 2010 to 2012. Rex Tillerson – Donald Trump’s pick for secretary of state and the CEO of ExxonMobil – headed the Boy Scouts as a national push began to let openly gay boys join the group.

Tillerson wasn’t president of the organization in 2013, when the group finally allowed gays to participate, but he was “intimately involved” in the push, according to Zach Wahls, an Eagle Scout who co-founded Scouts for Equality, a national campaign to end discrimination in the Boy Scouts.

On all of our Boy Scout camp outs in the late 1960s--all of us were between 11 and 16--when we retired to our tents and waited for the Sandman to check us in, you shouldn´t need to guess what the main subject was in each tent as we drifted off. Girls. Girls. Girls. If there had been any flesh and blood teen-aged girls about, approaches would probably have been made, and a few accepted after the Scoutmaster drifted into deep slumber for the night.

I don´t think this is such a good idea. Raging hormones are involved. It might kill the Girl Scouts, and there´s nothing wrong with having some such organizations for teenagers (and just below that age) segregated by sex. The sexes are different, and are fundamentally not interchangeable. Vive la différence!

Cheerleading Coach Will Not Face
Criminal Charges Over Forced Splits
BuzzFeed News, by Cora Lewis    Original Article

The Denver District Attorney’s Office will not file criminal charges in connection with an East High School cheerleading coach who could be seen on video forcing students to do painful splits, which resulted in injury. In the footage, which went viral in August, 13-year-old Ally Wakefield can be heard saying, "No, no, no, no, no! I can´t!" and "Please stop. Please stop. Please stop," as former Coach Ozell Williams holds her down. School administrators fired the coach that month after parents complained, and after it emerged he had been fired from another Colorado town for the same conduct.

A Miami-area congressional candidate says she was abducted by aliens when she was 7 years old – and 10 years later, it happened again. Real aliens – as in saucer-flying extraterrestrials – supposedly took her into their spacecraft and talked to her “about a series of things that would happen,” she recounted in two TV interviews posted on YouTube. “And they have all happened, point to point,” Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera, 59, one of several candidates vying to succeed outgoing Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., said in one of the Spanish-language TV interviews, which aired on AmericaTeVe in 2009. It's unclear when the other clip aired.

Judge refuses to throw out

Newark, NJ - The judge at Sen. Bob Menendez´s corruption trial refused to throw out any of the charges against the New Jersey Democrat on Monday in light of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling narrowing the definition of bribery. The decision by U.S. District Judge Williams Walls was a major defeat for Menendez and a huge victory for prosecutors, who warned that dismissing the charges would torpedo nearly all other bribery cases and open the door wide to graft. Walls rejected defense lawyers´ arguments that the allegations against Menendez didn´t meet the new, narrower definition of bribery under a 2016 Supreme Court ruling

"At the time, I had no intention of causing search and recovery operations," Bergdahl said, but he added he now understand that his decision prompted efforts to find him. Bergdahl told the judge he left his post because he had issues with his command and was trying to travel to another base to notify them -- a claim that has been disputed in the past by a former platoon mate. He added he got lost after 20 minutes and was captured hours later. The misbehavior charge carries a maximum penalty of life in prison, while the desertion charge is punishable by up to five years behind bars. Bergdahl also claimed Monday he escaped around 12 to 15

President Trump tweeted Monday that he hopes “Crooked” Hillary Clinton runs for president again, even as the former secretary of state was telling an Australian media outlet that former FBI Director James Comey gave her the "shiv." “I was recently asked if Crooked Hillary Clinton is going to run in 2020?

Trump and the dismantling of Obama´s legacy

Washington - Brick by brick, the demolition job has begun: since taking office less than a year ago, Donald Trump has launched an all-out assault on the legacy of Barack Obama. Climate, free trade, health care, immigration, foreign policy -- the 45th US president has set about undoing just about everything done by the 44th. All new presidents, of course, break with their predecessor once in the Oval Office, especially if they come from a rival political party. But what is striking is how systematic the hammer blows to Obama´s legacy have been. And rather than throw his weight behind new policies or projects,

Los Angeles - A California legislative leader announced Sunday he will challenge U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, setting up a 2018 contest between two Democrats that will highlight generational, geographic and ideological contrasts in the party that dominates state politics. The 84-year-old Feinstein, a former San Francisco mayor and grande dame of California Democrats, will face state Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Leon, 50, a Los Angeles Hispanic who is largely unknown statewide. In a brief video announcement posted online, De Leon promised to work for job growth and economic security in Washington,

Democrats on Sunday downplayed talk of forcing a government shutdown after President Trump launched a twin assault on Obamacare, saying they will continue their uphill push to negotiate fixes to the law after the administration halted critical “cost-sharing payments” to insurers and ordered agencies to explore the sale of cheaper plans across state lines. (Snip) Mr. Trump’s decision to halt the cost-sharing payments, in particular, is sending shock waves through the insurance markets and has reignited legal fights over health care. A slate of Democratic attorneys general immediately filed a lawsuit to try to preserve the money,

“Where’s the president?” asks the editorial board of the San Fransisco Chronicle, as California burns. Well, it knows where President Trump literally is: the White House usually, if not one of his resorts. The newspaper board means where is he on Twitter — or as the board says, “How many times has Trump tweeted about the fires since they were whipped by winds into life-threatening force early Monday: zero.” Zero, true, as of early Sunday evening. As the Chronicle notes, Trump did speak once, offline, about the fires. A few days ago, he promised to “stand with” Californians and said he’s in touch with the governor —

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted “half-baked, spurious nationalism” in the United States in an emotional speech Monday night after receiving the National Constitution Center’s Liberty Medal. “To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ´the last best hope of earth´ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of

Hillary Clinton slammed what she called "endemic" sexism and misogyny in America during an interview with Fareed Zakaria, which aired Sunday. Clinton, who was interviewed by Zakaria on his show, "GPS," said sexism was so inherent that she purposely hadn´t highlighted her career history of fighting for women´s rights when she ran for president in 2016. However, she admitted that with the benefit of hindsight, she "could have tried harder" to do so. "I´m a middle-class girl from the middle of the country, and so I always struggled with like, OK, so what´s my story. And it suddenly dawned on me that

Sure, it´s been more than 340 days since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, but there´s still one very narrow, highly unlikely and entirely unprecedented way that Clinton could become president. And it has some Democratic die-hards dreaming again. Harvard University professor Lawrence Lessig offered a Clinton path to the presidency on Medium, putting forward a series of "if/then" scenarios that lead to House Speaker Paul Ryan handing the White House keys to Clinton. Here´s how constitutional law expert Lessig lays it out: If number 1: If Trump is definitively found to have colluded directly with Russia, he would be forced to resign or

New York activist Tamika Mallory says she was booted from an American Airlines flight in Miami after a pilot inserted himself into a dispute over her seat assignment. Mallory, a co-chair of the Women’s March on Washington, was traveling home to New York when the pilot followed her to scold her over an argument she had with a gate agent. He then had her summoned from her seat and kicked off the flight, she told the Daily News. “It definitely was white male aggression. I was singled out, I was disrespected, and he was trying to intimidate me. I was

Jane Fonda made it clear she is not proud of America. During a recent interview with the BBC, Fonda was asked, "Are you proud of America today?" The actress was very quick to reply with a hard "no." "But, I’m proud of the resistance," she elaborated. "I’m proud of the people who are turning out in unprecedented numbers and continue over and over and over again to protest what Trump is doing. I’m very proud of them, that core." During the same interview, the 79-year-old was asked if she had a "sense of regret" for her visit to North Vietnam in 1972. The

Hillary Clinton on Sunday defended NFL players who knelt during the national anthem, saying kneeling is a “reverent” position that is not against “our anthem or our flag.” The former Democratic presidential candidate, who was at the Southbank Centre´s London Literature Festival, urged Democrats to use the issue against President Trump. Clinton was embarking on a foreign trip to promote her book “What Happened.” She said people should resist “what are very clear dog-whistles” to the Trump base, pointing to the example of kneeling NFL players. “That´s what black athletes kneeling was all about,” she said in response to a question about ways to

If the NFL thought Americans would ease the backlash against the league — they were sadly mistaken. Photos of empty stadiums from around the league show how dire a situation kneelers have spurred. (Photo) Breitbart News reports: Note, that the Jets played New England on Sunday, meaning there should have been a big crowd for that game. The Texans, Atlanta, and Baltimore are also very relevant teams with relatively loyal fan bases. Yet, thousands upon thousands of fans no-showed or didn’t buy tickets for those games.

Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough said President Donald Trump was the “antithesis” of the teachings of Jesus Christ. Scarborough said, “You look in Matthew, and go through the Beatitudes. Every single Beatitude. You go through Jesus’s teaching. What he says he wants people to be. Donald Trump is the antithesis of just about every single thing that Jesus Christ said on the Sermon on the Mount. Go read it.” He added, “None of us are perfect, but he goes out of his way it seems to thumb his nose at all conventions. Including the basics of
