Does the Boy Scouts´ acceptance
of girls mean the end of men?

Washington Examiner, by Nicole Russell

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/12/2017 8:23:08 PM

The Boy Scouts announced Wednesday they will let girls into the Cub Scouts in a bid to "evolve how our programs meet the needs of families interested in positive and lifelong experiences for their children." (Snip) This decision is not only indicative of the toxic hold third-wave feminism has on large organizations and the people who run them, but demonstrative of a consolidated effort to eradicate the influence of boys and men on society. Simply put, it´s not enough to emasculate men or categorize them as predators or toxic, now we must equate them with girls in order to remove

Comments:
Not yet, but the progressives are sure working hard to eliminate them aren´t they. This is an excellent, very powerful article. It is just one more prong of the destruction from the left in their gender-bending quest. It is extremely disturbing and if a massive pushback doesn´t happen soon I shudder to think what we will become in this society. The link below is from Tucker Carlson. He is very disturbed over this move. I totally agree with him.

The regressives can push all they want, it will never change the immutable relationship between a man and a woman. Manly men will always be there. And womanly women will always be there too. And the two together will always be one, as they were designed to be.

Why is there no corresponding call for boys to be admitted to the Girl Scouts? Is that an inconvenient question? Is that a rude question?

Could it be that the Girl Scouts leadership is a buncha leftist lesbian ideologues? Ooops, that´s another rude question.

BSA is based in Texas. I knew it was over for the organization as we knew it not when homosexual behavior was accepted officially but when there was no
principled and meaningful backlash.

First Rex Tillerson gets approval for gay scout masters to ´lead´ the boy scouts when he was in charge. And now this ...? Oh, and dont forget the drugging of active boys with Ritalin to help ´feminize´ them. Even the universities are feminizing their courses. Nothing to see here folks, right?

Well, the Girl Scouts had this to say about the Boy Scout´s decision:

"The Boy Scouts´ house is on fire," Girl Scouts told ABC News in a statement today. "Instead of addressing systemic issues of continuing sexual assault, financial mismanagement and deficient programming, BSA´s senior management wants to add an accelerant to the house fire by recruiting girls."

It sounds more like a desperation move on the part of an incompetent leadership prompted by the need for numbers and cash, but it is still going to destroy that organization.

I can almost read the breathless, screaming articles a year from now alleging the culture of rape in the Boy Scouts, which is probably what they wanted to begin with.

I think this is a great idea. I was involved in Boy Scouts as a leader for 10 years. Life in the U.S. isn´t like it was in the 50s and 60s. Girl Scouts has become dominated by feminists/lesbians. No joke. Girls coming into Boy Scouts... which will become "Scouts"... should be encouraged by American patriots.

Socialism is a ´Girl Thing´.

In our primary environment (childhood home) we all had to share and Mom decided what was ´Fair´.

Also....aside from providing a ´Safe and Warm´ environment nothing of value was created and the system depended on outside input for most everything.

Just like macro Socialism......sounds great but requires Other People´s Money.

All these ´systems´ are thought up by people who never worked a day in their lives.

.....never dug a ditch or built a house with their own hands.

Spit.

I have another question, #2: Achieving Eagle Scout status has great prestige. Why hasn´t the Girl Scouts organization ever established anything equivalent to Eagle Scout for girls to aspire to and work toward achieving?

The answer is from Iowahawk:

1. Identify a respected institution.
2. kill it.
3. gut it.
4. wear its carcass as a skin suit, while demanding respect.

Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has completed his one-week sex rehab program. A psychologist taking part in his treatment told TMZ that Weinstein would remain in Arizona for a month or so after his week of outpatient ´intensive therapy´ ends on Saturday. Weinstein was ´invested in the program´ and had focused on ´dealing with his anger, his attitude toward others, boundary work and the beginnings of work on empathy,´ the psychologist told the outlet with Weinstein´s permission. The psychologist downplayed previous reports that the 65-year-old film producer had fallen asleep in group sessions and ranted about conspiracy theories. ´He showed up for all the

President Trump said Saturday he would allow the release of confidential files related to assassination of former President John F. Kennedy. “Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened,” Trump tweeted. (Snip) Politico Magazine reported Friday that Trump administration officials were concerned that some of the documents created in the 1990s contain information on recent U.S. intelligence programs and might not be released. White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters told the publication the White House is aiming “to ensure that the maximum amount of data can be released

Afghan troops go AWOL in
U.S.; IG says wastes taxpayer
money, poses security threat
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 10/20/2017 9:02:23     Post Reply
More than 150 Afghan troops brought to the U.S. for military training have gone AWOL since 2005, with 13 of them still unaccounted for and perhaps living as here illegal immigrants now, an inspector general said in a new report Friday. Part of the problem is that the U.S. never puts the trainees through an in-person interview and exempts them from registering as aliens when they arrive — both steps that other visitors would normally have to go through. In-person interviews and requiring the troops to register beforehand would help the government gauge whether someone is likely to go absent without leave,

The Nets invited a Brooklyn native to sing the national anthem at their home opener and she took the opportunity to make a statement. Justin Skye, from Fort Greene, took a knee at the end of the anthem at the Barclays Center on Friday night before the Nets and Magic took the court. The crowd reacted to her actions with mostly boos, according to the Associated Press. Specifically, Skye got down on one knee while singing the final line “and the home of the brave,” according to Metro News. Nets players locked arms while she sang. Skye is a recording

Benjamin Wittes, a friend of former FBI Director James Comey, said that he´s unable to say how far President Trump is willing to push the legal bounds of the presidency because it would involve "looking into his soul" — and he´s not quite sure Trump has one. Asked by former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara on his podcast "Stay Tuned with Preet" how far he thinks Trump is willing to stretch the constitutional constraints of his office, Wittes said he would need to look into Trump´s soul to answer that question.

Now, according to a source familiar with the situation, Fusion has asked a U.S. District Court in Washington DC judge to prevent the bank from complying with the subpoena. The move comes just days after two of those three Fusion employees asserted their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination rather than answer questions about the dossier.

The NFL´s declining TV ratings, blamed by some on the national anthem controversy, could soon take a financial toll on the broadcasters that have spent tens of billions dollars for the right to air pro football, investment analysts say. Through the first five weeks of the season, ratings for the Sunday night game on 21st Century Fox´s (FOXA) Fox Sports have slumped 7 percent from a year ago. NFL viewership at CBS (CBS), the parent company of CBSNews.com, has plunged 17 percent for Sunday match-ups and 8 percent on Thursday.

Let’s put the Uranium One scandal in perspective: The cool half-million bucks the Putin regime funneled to Bill Clinton was five times the amount it spent on those Facebook ads — the ones the media-Democrat complex ludicrously suggests swung the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump. The Facebook-ad buy, which started in June 2015 — before Donald Trump entered the race — was more left-wing agitprop (ads pushing hysteria on racism, immigration, guns, etc.) than electioneering. The Clintons’ own long-time political strategist Mark Penn estimates that just $6,500 went to actual electioneering. (You read that right: 65 hundred dollars.) By

n Monday, Sen. John McCain denounced President Trump’s philosophy, agenda, and conduct. On Thursday, former President George W. Bush did the same thing. Neither mentioned Trump by name, but their target was clear. They echoed former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who spoke out against Trump last year. These three indictments, issued by the men who represented the GOP in the four elections leading up to Trump’s, are more than ghosts of a dead party. They point toward an alternative vision of conservatism.
