Hillary aghast Trump might fire disloyal staffers

Hillary Clinton with Rachel Maddow

Hillary Clinton is talking – again. In an interview with MSNBC, she worried that President Trump is becoming “uncontrollable.”

The unsuccessful 2016 Democratic presidential candidate sat down with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and said she has an overwhelming fear concerning President Donald Trump once the midterms are over:

Clinton: “He will fire people in the White House, he will fire people in his administration who he thinks are crossing him, questioning him, undermining him. The president is close to being uncontrollable.”

Political analyst Richard Randall finds Clinton’s remarks somewhat hypocritical, pointing out that she often fired those who she thought were disloyal – and he argues she would never have stood for someone controlling her.

“She somehow has a problem with the president [firing] somebody who is undermining him, betraying him, leaking information, or trying to disrupt what goes on in the White House – and [she] seems to think it’s a problem for him to not want that person working in the White House?” he asks.

And why wouldn’t the president fire that self-described “resistance” person who wrote the op-ed in The New York Times that he hides things and grabs papers off the president’s desk in the Oval Office?

Randall says it’s like the left wants to bring an atom bomb to every knife fight.

“Democrats, progressives – they’re at wit’s end. They never saw this coming,” he says. “They couldn’t imagine Trump winning … they couldn’t imagine Hillary not having eight years to go down that road.”

New American Academy of Pediatrics Guidelines Support Sex Reassignment for Kids

New American Academy of Pediatrics Guidelines Support Sex Reassignment for Kids

In a new medical policy statement, the American Academy of Pediatrics says it supports the surgical and hormonal transition of transgender children and teens.

The statement will be published in October in the AAP’s journal, Pediatrics.

According to The Christian Post, the document discusses ways for parents and health care providers to affirm the gender choices of patients, including encouraging primary care doctors to install gender-neutral bathrooms in their offices and signs that show the office is LGBT inclusive. The statement also suggests diversity training for employees to be “helpful for educating clinical and administrative staff.”

AAP is also recommending that doctors use the term “gender affirmation” instead of “gender transition” to discuss the gender identities of children and teens.

Dr. Jason Rafferty, a member of the AAP Section on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Health and Wellness, wrote the guideline.

The guideline also supports the use of chemical treatments to stop normal puberty, saying those treatments are “reversible.”

The treatments can be used until the child is 16 and gives time for the family to “explore gender identity, access psychosocial supports, develop coping skills and further determine treatment goals.”

“The available data reveal that pubertal suppression in children who identify as [transgender or gender-diverse] generally leads to improved psychological functioning in adolescence and young adulthood,” the guideline claims.

The statement also says that chemical treatment to stop puberty can be risky, saying that “research on long-term risks, particularly in terms of bone metabolism and fertility is currently limited and provides varied results.”

In 2017, Johns Hopkins University and Washington University researchers called those treatments “radical” and “experimental.”

Meanwhile, the American College of Pediatricians released its own policy statement in 2017, saying that doctors, lawmakers and educators should “reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex.”

Swedish Professor Under Investigation for Saying Men and Women Are Biologically Different

I WANT TO BE X GENDER OR I WILL SUE

A Swedish university professor is being investigated for making the comment that there are biological differences between men and women. Lund University neurophysiology professor Germund Hesslow was accused by a student of making “transphobic” and “anti-feminist” statements in a lecture, and though the school has asked him to recant, Hesslow is refusing.

RT reports that during a lecture in his course on ‘Heritage and Environment’, Hesslow cited research that supports the idea that there are differences between men and women which are “biologically founded” concluding that for that reason genders cannot be regarded as merely “social constructs.”

After the lecture was over a female student complained to the department suggesting that Hesslow’s comments went against Swedish values which require all schools in Sweden to adhere to an ethical policy, which upholds egalitarian values, individual freedom and equality of the sexes.

Hesslow spoke with RT saying, some students, “for ideological reasons,” don’t like to hear certain scientific facts about biological differences between men and women.

Reportedly, the comments were not necessarily tied to the course material but were prompted by a question asked by a student during the lecture.

“If you answer such a question you are under severe time pressure, you have to be extremely brief — and I used wording which I think was completely innocuous, and that apparently the student didn’t,” Hesslow said.

According to Academic Rights Watch, Hesslow met with the chairman of the program board for medical education Christer Larsson,  and was told that the student claimed he spoke on his “personal anti-feminist agenda.”

The university asked Hesslow to refrain from and remove himself from two specific comments he made: that gay women have a “male sexual orientation” and that whether transsexuality is a sexual orientation is “a matter of definition”.

Hesslow has refused to recant his statements saying “At some point, one must ask for a sense of proportion among those involved. If it were to become acceptable for students to record lectures in order to find compromising formulations and then involve faculty staff with meetings and long letters, we should let go of the medical education altogether.”

Reportedly, Hesslow also denied the accusation that he was plugging a “political agenda,” noting that his only agenda was to let scientific fact, not a new conventional outlook, steer university teachings.

He said, “Ideology, politics and prejudice form the conventional outlook, not science.”

‘Deeply religious’ Chelsea Clinton: ‘Un-Christian’ to end legal abortion

To Kill your Baby or not to -That is the question?

Hillary and Chelsea DNC (1)

Self-proclaiming herself to be a “deeply religious person,” Chelsea Clinton contended in a Thursday interview that it would be “un-Christian” to end legal abortion in America.

During an interview, Signal Boost Co-host Jess McIntosh – an intersectional feminist – asked the former first daughter about how she was able to stay positive in her fight to keep abortion legal in the United States – as it has been since the U.S. Supreme Court’s (SCOTUS) landmark Roe v. Wade decision of 1973.

“How do you keep going in the hopes that your daughter doesn’t have to have this fight?” McIntosh asked Clinton in the SiriusXM interview, according to The Daily Wire.

Modern-day champion of morality?

The daughter of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton replied that her moral decision to choose right over wrong is what drives her determination to champion abortion.

“Every day, I make the moral choice to be optimistic that my efforts and my energies – particularly when I’m fortunate enough to be in partnership with fellow travelers – hopefully will make a difference,” Chelsea Clinton answered, according to The Daily Wire. “And when I think about all of the statistics – that are painful – of what women are confronting today in our country, and what even more women confronted pre-Roe [v. Wade], and how many women died and how many more women were maimed because of unsafe abortion practices, we just can’t go back to that.”

She went on to indicate that she was a devout Christian and that her religious-minded conscience drives her to make the moral commitment to make sure abortion is not ruled legal in the U.S.

“That’s unconscionable to me,” the young Clinton continued, according to Townhall. “And also, I’m sure that this will unleash another wave of hate in my direction – but as a deeply religious person, it’s also un-Christian to me.”

Clinton’s remarks were initially spurred at the progressive event by a line of questioning regarding the impetus behind her motivation to aggressively promote abortion while the other side of the debate passionately defends the sanctity of human life … and her response indicated that she believes pro-life advocates are on the immoral side of the argument.

“I look at my children and I have to quote [World Bank President] Jim [Yong] Kim: ‘Optimism is a moral choice,'” Clinton shared, as reported by The Washington Examiner.

Chelsea: Economic benefits of abortion

The pro-abortion Democrat continued to portray the pro-life movement in a negative light when she claimed that she received considerable backlash and hatred last month regarding her controversial comment that keeping abortion legal contributes to economic improvement.

“American women entering the labor force from 1973 to 2009 added $3.5 trillion to our economy – right?” Clinton asserted in her controversial comment at the time, according to Townhall. “The net, new entrance of women – that is not disconnected from the fact that Roe became the law of the land in January of 1973.”

She still remained unapologetic about this view on Thursday – reaffirming her argument for abortion as the superior economic choice for women.

“[O]ur ability to participate fully in our society – including economically – hinges on our ability to be able to make choices for our bodies and our families,” the abortion activist insisted.

Co-host Zerlina Maxwell banded with McIntosh and Clinton in their condemnation of the pro-life movement.

“With the feminists all in agreement, they bonded over their disdain for pro-lifers – whom they described as ugly trolls,” The Daily Wire’s Amanda Prestigiacomo reported.

In fact, Maxwell depicted Clinton as a victim of pro-life advocates’ sinister persecution.

“You handle the hate pretty well,” Maxwell commended Clinton, according The Daily Wire. “Anti-choice folks are really some of the ugliest – and gun lovers, too.”

Clinton basked in the sympathy while complaining about pro-life advocates’ opposition to her ultra-left abortion platform – as she tried to reason that being “Christian” means putting one’s career above the life of preborn children.

“[I’ve been] compared to slave owners and Nazis [for] having the temerity [to support abortion on demand],” Clinton informed her supportive interviewers.

Roe on fire?

The abortion debate has been rekindled ever since President Donald Trump’s SCOTUS appointee Brett Kavanaugh arrived on the scene, with Democratic leaders alarming other abortion activists that he could upturn the nation’s highest court’s infamous 45-year-old ruling, which has resulted in the terminated lives of some 60 million preborn children in America.

“Abortion rights have been thrust back into the spotlight amid Brett Kavanaugh’s U.S. Supreme Court confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee,” the Examiner’s Naomi Lim recounted. “Clinton headlined a ‘Rise Up for Roe’ event in New York City last month in opposition to Kavanaugh’s nomination.”

Democrats are fearful that the left-leaning balance of SCOTUS – that pushed forward the legalization of same-sex “marriage” and numerous other pro-LGBT legal privileges – will be in great jeopardy if Kavanaugh joins the bench and leans it toward the right.

“Kavanaugh’s appointment to the highest court in the country would cement the conservative majority on the bench,” Lim added. “His confirmation is likely to herald an era in which the 1973 landmark opinion will be narrowly applied to cases before the court.”

 

Top US university ditches report linking transgenderism to peer pressure after activists complain

An Ivy League college has censored research into how the spread of teenage gender dysphoria is linked to peer pressure after trans activists complained.

Brown University, Rhode Island, had published research into ‘rapid-onset gender dysphoria’ (ROGD), indicating that teenagers who come out as transgender were more likely to already have transgender friends.

It also suggested that many teenagers identifying as transgender were often influenced by YouTube videos and social media.

Peer pressure

The paper concluded that “social and peer contagion” was a plausible explanation for the high number of cases where a majority of children in a friendship group begin identifying as transgender.

Lead author Dr Lisa Littman, an assistant professor in Behavioural and Social Sciences at Brown’s School of Public Health, said this phenomenon often occurred in “cluster outbreaks”.

The university pulled the research from its website, citing concerns about the methodology, while a statement added that members of the university had complained.

Wrong groups

The study was attacked by activists, who complained that the parents participating in the study had been sourced from online discussion groups Transgender Trend and 4thwavenow.

They said the research was invalid because the websites were “gender-critical”.

“social and peer contagion” was a plausible explanation for the high number of cases where a majority of children in a friendship group begin identifying as transgender

However, survey questions in Dr Littman’s paper indicated that the participating parents had almost identical level of support for the rights of transgender people as the rest of the population.

Contrary to claims of bias, those viewing the survey were encouraged to distribute it further, ensuring ‘snowball sampling’ likely involved many other parents, irrespective of any connection to either website.

Censorship

In a statement Transgender Trend responded: “Desperate attempts to undermine Lisa Littman’s important #ROGD study include defamation of the websites where parents were recruited, including the ridiculous claim that Transgender Trend is ‘far right’ and wants to ‘criminalise’ medical transition.

“We are not and we don’t.”

James Caspian, a psychotherapist whose research into people who want to ‘detransition’ was blocked by Bath Spa University, noted the similarity between this case and his own.

“In a way mine was censored in anticipation of being criticised, it would appear that this has been attacked after it’s been done, by people whose agenda it doesn’t suit”, he said.

Shut down debate

Social commentator Ben Shapiro accused Brown University of turning against the study “because it offended politically correct sensibilities about transgenderism”.

He said: “Raising questions about study methodology is normal. Pulling down articles about scientific studies thanks to public pressure isn’t.”

He concluded that it was an attempt to shut down a discussion that trans activists do not want to have: that some experiences of gender dysphoria are learned rather than innate.

 

            

Third of teens haven’t read book in year

(STUDY FINDS) — SAN DIEGO — Bookworm teens have always been few and far between, but now they seem like a dying breed. A new study puts some weight behind this notion by revealing just how American teenagers choose to spend their time (hint: it’s not with books). A third of adolescents haven’t even opened a dustjacket — or touched a Kindle for that matter — in the past year.

Researchers from San Diego State University recently analyzed four decades’ worth of data from an ongoing, nationally-based lifestyle survey studying teens. The data, which provides insight into the daily habits of over a million adolescents, shows the enormous impact of digital media over time.

TRANSGENDER GUV NOMINEE RIPPED ‘RADICALIZED CHRISTIANS’

Christine_Hallquist

(Lifezette) Vermont’s state motto is “Freedom and Unity.” But if Green Mountain State residents want to live up to that, they might want to take a harder look at one of their current gubernatorial candidates.

Christine Hallquist, a Democrat and the country’s first major party transgender nominee, once tweeted an insinuation that “radicalized Christians” are a problem that Americans currently “tolerate,” as The Daily Caller reported.

Hallquist won Tuesday’s Democratic primary for the Vermont governor’s race.
