Judge: Girls Have no Rights to “Visual Bodily Privacy”

The rights of some are more equal than others according to a district judge involved in the latest case of forcing transgender “rights” in America’s public schools. According to Judge Jorge Alonso of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois Eastern Division, allowing biological boys to use biological girls’ bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms can proceed because girls have no rights to “visual bodily privacy.” In his opinion, “bodily privacy” only refers to being physically touched, not gawked at. “[S]o far, the right not to be seen unclothed by the opposite sex is not on the Supreme Court’s list,” the judge wrote. The lawsuit comes in the wake of a 2016 determination by the district to allow boys claiming to be female to use the girls’ locker rooms in order to stop the Obama Department of Education from nixing its $6 million in federal funding. If the Left prevails, all of us will eventually be liberated from our bodies, free to do whatever we want, whenever, and with/to whomever. Sounds like a perfect paradise [insert dripping sarcasm].

While allowing a lawsuit to proceed against an Illinois school district which allows transgender students to use the facilities of their choice, a federal judge threw out the student-plaintiffs’ argument that they have the right to “bodily privacy,” saying that right refers to physically being touched by others, “not visual bodily privacy.”

Judge Jorge Alonso of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois Eastern Division is allowing a lawsuit to proceed against Chicago Township High School District 211, which adopted the Obama-era transgender policy permitting boys claiming to be female to use the girls’ bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms.

The judge informed the girls who are suing the school district, represented by Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), that, “[s]o far, the right not to be seen unclothed by the opposite sex is not on the Supreme Court’s list.”

AOC Defends Omar, Mocks War Hero

Socialist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) just keeps the idiotic statements coming. This time she rushed to the defense of fellow idiot Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is already facing furious backlash for minimizing the 9/11 terrorist attacks as “some people did something.” In good Lefty fashion, AOC not only mocked war vet Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) but pulled the victim card, tweeting that criticism of herself and Omar “is an incitement of violence against progressive women of color.” She also slammed the New York Post for its ultimate takedown of Omar by posting her “some people did something” over the iconic image of the 9/11 Twin Tower post-crash inferno. Kudos to the Post for the AOC reality check.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) continued to go to bat for Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-NY) on Thursday after Omar trivialized the 9/11 terrorist attacks as “some people did something,” claiming that she and Omar were both victims of the political Right.

Ocasio-Cortez, who defended Omar by mocking war hero Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) on Twitter, also falsely claimed that criticism of her and Omar “is an incitement of violence against progressive women of color.”

“The levels to which Republican and conservative groups, whether they are official party apparatuses, sending out emails, calling me and others domestic terrorists, or whether it’s Ruppert Murdoch and the New York Post printing on the front page to circulate all around New York City an image that is incredibly upsetting and triggering for New Yorkers that were actually there and were actually in the radius that woke up one morning or were in their schools and didn’t know if they were going to see their parents at the end of the day, to elicit such an image for such a transparently and politically motivated attack on Ilhan,” Ocasio-Cortez rambled.

University Offers “Angry White Male Studies”

The University of Kansas is veering far Left with a new course entitled “Angry White Male Studies.” Students will examine white males in “America and Britain” to explore “manifestations of male anger” and “dominant and subordinate masculinities” but only among white males. The class, which requires a prerequisite course or the instructor’s permission, will be offered beginning this fall. So now the Ivory Tower is requiring young students to undergo propaganda in which they’ll be programmed against “white privilege” and “toxic masculinity.” Brilliant. And the Left wonders why Trump is performing so well among blue-collar voters.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

The University of Kansas will be offering a new course called “Angry White Male Studies” beginning in the 2019 fall semester. The course is said to examine the “angry white male” and the “deeper sources of this emotional state while evaluating recent manifestations of male anger.”

A new course, entitled, “Angry White Male Studies” at the University of Kansas (KU) will be focusing on white males in “America and Britain,” and will examine supposed “manifestations of male anger, as well as “dominant and subordinate masculinities” among white males.

“Angry White Male Studies” will be offered at KU in the 2019 fall semester in both the Humanities and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies departments, and even requires a prerequisite course — or the instructor’s permission — in order to enroll for the course, according to the course description on the university’s website.

ACLU Sues Catholic Hospital for Transgender Surgery

The ACLU is doubling down on its attack against the First Amendment freedom of religion to force Catholics to violate their constitutionally protected rights. The liberal activist lawyers are now targeting St. Joseph Hospital in Eureka, California, for conscientiously objecting to surgically changing a biological woman to a man. The ACLU slammed the hospital for its allegedly discriminatory practices for performing hysterectomies on patients in medically necessary cases but not performing one on the transgender patient. Once upon a time, the ACLU actually fought for civil liberties. Now they’re just an activist shill for every fringe issue du jour.

Religious freedom? What religious freedom?

I’m pretty sure that I’ve written those same two questions to open an article in the past. No doubt, considering how rapidly society is transforming, I will plagiarize myself again before everything is said and done. This time, I ask the questions because the ACLU has sued St. Joseph hospital in Eureka, Calif., for refusing to perform surgery on a woman who thinks she is a man.

Oliver Knight (I don’t know her real name) explains in an article published on the ACLU’s website that the hysterectomy she was scheduled to have was the next surgery in the process of sex reassignment. She confesses that:

Since I was a kid, I’ve felt like my body didn’t match my soul. I felt uncomfortable in clothes. I felt disgusting when I showered. Everything felt wrong, but it took me a while to figure out why.

Rand Paul Implicates Obama, Brennan Behind Dossier

Just how high did the deep state Russia collusion conspiracy run? Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is taking the question straight to the Obama Oval Office. According to Paul, former Barack Obama and his CIA Director John Brennan were intentionally hands-on in the dissemination of the unverified and since debunked Steele dossier before and after the 2016 election. Paul told “Fox & Friends” that a “high-level source” confirmed it and is calling for Brennan to testify under oath before Congress. Paul went on to add that he believes the dossier was held back for “several months” before the FBI briefed Barack Obama. It was apparently only made public because it was going nowhere within the federal government until anti-Trump MSM glommed onto it with glee. As we’ve said before, this was a hit job coordinated at the highest level from day one.

Here’s more from The Daily Caller…

Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul implicated former President Barack Obama and former CIA Director John Brennan in the dissemination of the Steele dossier throughout the U.S. government before and after the 2016 presidential election in a Thursday morning interview on “Fox & Friends.”

Paul said Wednesday evening that a high-level source told him Brennan insisted on briefing Obama and President Donald Trump on the dossier days after the 2016 presidential election.

The briefing was later the impetus for news reports from CNN, which led to BuzzfeedNews releasing the full unverified dossier.

Paul went further Thursday morning, saying he believes the dossier was held by the FBI for “several months” and then briefed to Obama.

Beto Refuses to Protect Babies Who Survive Abortion

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke was caught on video refusing to support legislation that would protect babies who survive abortions, saying he trusts “women to make their own decisions about their own bodies.” The question in reference to the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act: “Would you support this bill that does not in any way limit abortion. It simply seeks to keep babies alive that have been born alive?” The legislation would simply require that the same effort be made to save the baby’s life as would be made to save any other life. For Beto, that’s apparently a bridge too far when your priority is “women’s own bodies”… despite that the legislation has absolutely nothing to do with the mother’s body.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke refused to voice support on Wednesday for a law that would protect babies who are born alive after surviving an abortion.

O’Rourke, who made the remarks in response to a question from a student at Plymouth State University, refused to signal support for the bill and instead deflected to saying that he trusts “women to make their own decisions about their own bodies.”

“Thank you for being here,” the student began. “You gave me a good excuse to be out of school. I wanted to ask you about a recent bill that just went through the Senate about two weeks ago and the bill was that if an abortion was performed on a viable fetus and the fetus survived the abortion the doctor would then be compelled to give that living baby the same care as any other pregnancy baby that came out and put that baby through the care.”

Strzok: Clinton, DOJ Struck Deal on Investigation

Newly released testimony from ousted FBI agent Peter Strzok reveals that the FBI “did not have access” to Clinton Foundation emails on her secret private server because of a deal “negotiated between the Department of Justice attorneys and counsel for Clinton.” Specifically, he revealed that he didn’t know if Clinton Foundation emails existed on the server because Hillary’s lawyers and the DOJ inked a deal preventing investigators from searching Clinton Foundation emails in the course of their investigation of the mishandling of classified information. In other words, incriminating information was not subject to investigation. Contrast that with the FBI’s investigation of virtually anything and anyone associated with Donald Trump.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

Fired FBI agent Peter Strzok told Congress last year that the agency “did not have access” to Clinton Foundation emails that were on Hillary Clinton’s private server because of a consent agreement “negotiated between the Department of Justice attorneys and counsel for Clinton.”

That agreement was revealed in newly released congressional transcripts from Strzok’s closed-door testimony at the House Judiciary Committee on June 27, 2018.

When asked by then-majority general counsel Zachary Somers if “the Clinton Foundation was on the server”, Strzok testified that he believed it was “on one of the servers, if not the others.” But Strzok stressed that due to an agreement between the DOJ and Clinton, they were not allowed to search Clinton Foundation emails for information that could help in their investigation.

Court: Ohio Can Defund Planned Parenthood

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th District sided 11-6 with the state of Ohio to end taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood. According to Judge Jeffrey Sutton, the law to defund America’s number one abortion provider does “not violate a woman’s right to obtain an abortion,” and that the state “has no obligation to pay for a woman’s abortion.”
“Private organizations do not have a constitutional right to obtain governmental funding to support their activities,” Judge Sutton continued. A key provision of the Ohio legislation is that it “does not condition a woman’s access to any of these public health programs on refusing to obtain an abortion.” The decision is a major blow to Planned Parenthood’s stranglehold on public subsidy for abortions. This may also ultimately embolden Congress to revoke the half billion of your tax dollars that end up in their blood-soaked coffers.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

A federal appeals court ruled Tuesday, 11–6, to allow Ohio to end taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood because the organization performs abortions.

Judge Jeffrey Sutton of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit wrote Ohio’s law to defund the abortion vendor does “not violate a woman’s right to obtain an abortion,” that the state “has no obligation to pay for a woman’s abortion,” and that the law doesn’t impose “undue burden” on a woman’s access to an abortion.

“Private organizations do not have a constitutional right to obtain governmental funding to support their activities,” the judge continued. “The State also may choose not to subsidize constitutionally protected activities.”

The Ohio law “does not condition a woman’s access to any of these public health programs on refusing to obtain an abortion,” Sutton added. “It makes these programs available to every woman, whether she seeks an abortion or not.

Representative Omar: Trump is not a Human

Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has hit yet another political low, this time remarking that President Trump is not even human. Omar made the remarks in an interview with Fox News in reference to Politico’s piece detailing her attacks on former President Barack Obama. When asked to “set the record straight” regarding her remarks, Omar refused to answer. When she was asked “Do you think President Obama is the same as President Trump?” Omar snapped in response, saying, “Absolutely not.” “That is silly to even think and equate the two.” She added, “One is human; the other is not.” Given Omar’s radical Islamic bent, this notion isn’t all that surprising; after all, there’s not much difference between labeling someone “subhuman” and “infidel.”

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) made dehumanizing remarks about President Donald Trump on Monday when asked about an interview she gave last week, saying that the president was not human.

Trump Just Promoted Quote Calling Climate Crisis ‘Fake’

Fox News’ Guerin Hays asked Omar, who has been engulfed in an anti-Semitism scandal, about an interview she gave to Politico last week where she attacked former President Barack Obama and suggested that he was a murderer.

Omar came out after the interview was published and claimed that Politico was lying about the interview and that she did not make those comments. Omar tweeted an audio clip of that segment of the interview that she thought exonerated her but it ended up proving that she did say it. After being mocked online she deleted the tweet.

“Can you set the record straight when it comes to the Politico interview,” Hays politely asked.

AOC: State of America is “Garbage”; Reagan a Racist

AOC is at it again, this time blasting the US of A as “garbage.” She followed with an attack on President Reagan for being a “racist,” arguing that his vision of America “pitted” the white working class against minorities “to screw over all working-class Americans.” She criticized Reaganism for its opposition to “welfare queens” or what she perceives as “essentially black women.” Clearly, the irony of her remarks went over her head. Memo to AOC: class and race-based warfare found their most recent genesis in the spectacular twin failures of LBJ’s Great Society and War on Poverty. So much for big government socialism “solutions.”

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) suggested during a talk on Saturday that America is “garbage” and that former President Ronald Reagan presented a “racist” vision of the country that “pitted” white working class people against minorities in order “to screw over all working-class Americans.”

Ocasio-Cortez made the remarks while speaking at the left-leaning South by Southwest Conference & Festivals in Austin, Texas.

“One perfect example, I think a perfect example of how special interests and the powerful have pitted white working-class Americans against brown and black working-class Americans in order to just screw over all working-class Americans, is Reaganism in the ’80s when he started talking about welfare queens,” Ocaiso-Cortez said. “So you think about this image of welfare queens and what he was really trying to talk about was … this like really resentful vision of essentially black women who were doing nothing that were ‘sucks’ on our country.”
