Both Pope Francis and Dr. Anthony Fauci are endorsing globalism as an answer to COVID-19, climate change, poverty and other issues.

In an interview with Italian journalist Domenico Agasso, set to be released Tuesday, Pope Francis promotes the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset agenda.

Regarding COVID, the Pope says, “The world will never be the same again. But it is precisely within this calamity that we must grasp those signs which may prove to be the cornerstones of reconstruction. Speeches are not enough to solve emergencies. The pandemic is an alarm signal on which humanity is forced to reflect. This time of trial can thus become a time of wise and far-sighted choices for the good of humanity, of all humanity.”

Pope Francis also calls for “a new model of development” that is more environment-friendly.

He urges the world start this phase as soon as possible, saying, “If we don’t roll up our sleeves and immediately take care of the Earth, with radical personal and political choices, with an economic ‘green’ turn by directing technological developments in this direction, sooner or later our common home will throw us out the window. We cannot waste any more time.”

One way to accomplish this, according to the pontiff, is by “limiting support to companies that are harmful to the environment and to peace.”

This coming from the Vatican, which literally did business with Hitler, Mussolini, and other Axis leaders during and even after WWII.

Again promoting “reconstruction” or a Great Reset, the Pope asks world leaders to “rebuild from the rubble.”

Part of the rebuilding process includes the removal of “social injustice and marginalization.”

Pope Francis explains, “We can heal injustice by building a new world order based on solidarity, studying innovative methods to eradicate bullying, poverty and corruption, all working together, each for their own part, without delegating and passing the buck. Also by working to provide healthcare for all.”

Those who “manufacture and traffic in arms” and engage in crimes against humanity are also condemned by the Pope as he promotes an agenda created by those same groups.

“United in fraternity, humanity is able to face common threats, without any more counterproductive mutual recriminations, instrumentalization of problems, short-sighted nationalism, protectionist propaganda, isolationism and other forms of political selfishness.”

The open call for a “new world order” is interesting for many reasons, one being the mainstream media’s mockery of “conspiracy theorists” who have warned of the planned global government system for decades.

Apparently, the establishment hacks ridiculing people like Alex Jones have never seen George H. W. Bush calling for a NWO, which he did multiple times.


While Pope Francis calls for a new world order, Dr. Anthony Fauci appeared on NBC News with Chuck Todd on Sunday to promote globalism.

Todd told Fauci many people feel that “Due to climate change and due to globalization in general, it’s inevitable, we’re going to deal with more and more viruses like this.”

The NBC host asked, “What’s the biggest lesson you’re going to take away to prepare for the next one?”

Fauci responded “Let’s take global to begin with. We have to have a better global health security network of interconnectivity, of communication, of transparency so we are talking to each other all the time and know what’s going on.”

“So, keep the science up,” he said. “Continue to support the public health infrastructure and remain global in our interactions. As I’ve said so many times, a global pandemic requires a global response.”


Top reasons why not to be afraid of COVID; Lose your fear and engage your brain. Look at the facts and understand the facts do not support the fear and they never have.

Germany, France, Italy, Indonesia Halt AstraZeneca COVID Vaccine After Reports Of Blood Clots

"The decision has been made...to suspend the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine as a precaution," says French President Macron. This adds up to 18 countries that have suspended AstraZeneca's vaccine

Four more countries have abruptly halted the distribution of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine amid reports that people developed blood clots after receiving the shot.

Germany, France, Italy, and Indonesia all announced Monday they would be suspending the use of AstraZeneca’s vaccine as a precaution until the World Health Organization conducts a review.

“After new reports of thromboses of the cerebral veins in connection with the vaccination in Germany and Europe, the PEI (Paul Ehrlich Institute) considers further investigations to be necessary,” said the health ministry.

“The European Medicines Agency will decide whether and how the new findings will affect the approval of the vaccine,” it added.

French President Emmanuel Macron told reporters Monday that France would suspend the vaccine until at least late Tuesday in anticipation of a European Medicines Agency (EMA) review.

“The decision has been made…to suspend the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine as a precaution, hoping that we can resume its use quickly if the judgement of the EMA allows it,” Macron said.

Italian prosecutors seized a batch of 393,600 AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines over the weekend after a teacher died Saturday hours after receiving the jab.

Indonesia decided to suspend the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine after seeing the reports of blood clots emerge in the European countries.

“To be conservative, the food and drug agency delayed implementation of AstraZeneca [vaccine] as it awaits confirmation from the WHO,” health minister Budi Gunadi Sadikin told a parliamentary hearing on Monday.

The countries which have suspended use of the AstraZeneca vaccine

Numerous European countries, including Denmark, Ireland, the Netherlands, Iceland, and Norway have already suspended the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine over reports of blood clots.

This comes as the establishment and media are demonizing anybody skeptical of taking the vaccine.

Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday he finds it “so disturbing” that you would DARE question the safety of any of the COVID vaccines, even while numerous countries are suspending it over health concerns.

Muslim Woman Who Beheaded Child is Freed: She’s ‘Cured’~She screamed “Allahu akbar” as she brandished the severed head

BY ROBERT SPENCER

Gulchekhra Bobokulova horrified the world in February 2016 when she beheaded four-year-old Anastasia Meshcheryakova, whom she served as a nanny. Once Russian police got around to arresting her (she brandished the head and raved for fully twenty minutes), she was declared to be mentally ill. And now for the good news: psychiatrists have pronounced her cured, and she is set to walk free.

The UK’s MailOnline reported Friday that after just five years in a psych ward, Bobokulova has been “cured” of her “chronic psychiatric disorder,” and so she can be freed without endangering the public. That was easy, eh? Bobokulova walked around outside Oktyabrskoye Pol metro station in Moscow brandishing little Anastasia’s head and screaming “Allahu akbar” and “I am a terrorist,” but she has put all that behind her now, so why should we be hung up about it? What’s that? The doctrines of jihad still remain, and she could act upon them again? Shut up, you greasy Islamophobe, and step aside. You’re blocking the multicultural sunbeams.

After all, her doctors say they are “confident” that she is “harmless.” What could possibly go wrong? Well, for one thing, there are indications besides her exclamations that this killing wasn’t a manifestation of mental illness at all. The Mail asserted that she was “influenced by extremist ideologies on the web.” Bobokulkova’s own explanation for why she beheaded the little girl she was supposed to be taking care of was simple: “It was what Allah ordered.”

And he did. The Qur’an says: “When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks” (47:4). It doesn’t exempt nannies from this command, or exclude four-year-old girls from the pool of unbelievers who should be beheaded. It just says, “When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks” – no ifs, ands or buts. That’s what the Qur’an says, and that’s what Gulchekhra Bobokulova did.

At this point, of course, the John Espositos and Karen Armstrongs and Reza Aslans of the world would recoil in horror – a horror even greater than they might have felt when they saw the video of the hijabbed Gulchekhra with Anastasia’s severed head and knew that here was yet another PR disaster for the religion whose image they’re forever trying to burnish. That passage of the Qur’an, they would insist (if they deigned to engage their opponents in rational discussion and debate, which they do not, and do not need to, since they have total control of academia and the mainstream media), does not mean that individual Muslims should just go around lopping off the heads of infidels, especially infidels who are four-year-old girls. In the first place, they would say, it refers only to unbelievers one meets in battle, and Gulchekhra Bobokulova is not a Muslim warrior engaged in a war against non-Muslim forces, and little Nastya Meshcheryakova was likewise not a combatant in any such war.

It’s true: that beheading the unbelievers is an action limited to the battlefield is a common interpretation of that passage among Muslims. The popular English Qur’an translation by Abdullah Yusuf Ali renders the passage thusly: “Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks.” Another, by Mohammed Marmaduke Pickthall, has it “Now when ye meet in battle those who disbelieve, then it is smiting of the necks.” And so Gulchekhra Bobokulova is just another of the multitudes of Muslims who misunderstand their religion, no?

No. A boyfriend of Bobokulova had links to the Islamic State. The Islamic State considers itself to be at war with the non-Muslim world, and has repeatedly called upon Muslims in non-Muslim countries to murder non-Muslims in lone-wolf attacks. In September 2014, the Islamic State issued a lengthy call to Muslims to murder non-Muslim civilians; it included this: “Will you leave the disbeliever to sleep safely at home while the Muslim women and children shiver with fear of the roars of the crusader airplanes above their heads day and night?”

The claim that the “crusaders” are victimizing children is significant in light of this Qur’an verse: “So whoever has assaulted you, then assault him in the same way that he has assaulted you” (2:194). Thus if the “crusaders” are killing Muslim children, then Muslims must kill “crusader” children. Could Gulchekhra Bobokulova’s Islamic State boyfriend have exhorted her to kill the child in her care in revenge for the children allegedly killed in Russian airstrikes against the Islamic State?

The possibility should not be dismissed out of hand, although it will be. In court back in March 2016, Bobokulova was asked if would ask Anastasia’s parents to forgive her. Holding up one finger, the sign of allegiance to the Islamic State, she replied: “I will ask nobody. Only Allah.” When asked, “What did Allah order you to do?,” she answered, “To kill.” Nonetheless, the Telegraph reported, true to form for the establishment media, that “no clear motive has been established.” And ultimately she was declared schizophrenic.

Of course. Jihad is never a motive. Even when the jihadi confesses to being a jihadi and killing on orders from Allah, Western officials and journalists, certain that violence against unbelievers has nothing to do with the Religion of Peace, will discount what is said and ascribe the behavior to mental illness, climate change, whatever sounds remotely plausible enough to keep the masses complacent, ignorant, and not interested in asking questions.

It is they who in fact are mentally ill, insofar as mental illness means an inability or unwillingness to accept reality and deal with other people on the basis of it. The beheading of Anastasia Meshcheryakova by the Allahu-akbaring Gulchekhra Bobokulova, and the subsequent dismissal of the incident as mental illness, indicates anew just how severely genuine mental illness currently afflicts the political and media elites all over the non-Muslim world. We can only hope these elites recover their sanity or are swept out of all positions of power and influence, before their affliction kills us all.

NRA-America’s 1st Freedom: The Truth About NICS BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR PURCHASING FIREARMS

BY STEPHEN P. HALBROOK

SEE: https://www.americas1stfreedom.org/articles/2020/11/25/the-truth-about-nics;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

When Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe went to buy a shotgun last August 6, an FBI background check barred him from completing the purchase.

O’Keefe came out swinging by quickly posting a video response that stirred up a lot of media attention. As he is the founder of Project Veritas, a nonprofit that uses undercover cameras and informants to uncover waste, fraud and illegal activity, he wondered if he had been blacklisted by the government as a punishment for his many video releases.

O’Keefe also filed a lawsuit against the FBI. According to the complaint, filed in U.S. District Court in the Southern District of New York, O’Keefe alleged that the FBI falsely claimed he’d been convicted of a felony and “has subsequently repeatedly, wrongfully and without justification denied Mr. O’Keefe the ability to purchase a firearm.”

However, the thing about this denial is, it’s much more likely this was simply a bureaucratic hiccup from a cumbersome governmental system. 

In 2010, O’Keefe and three of his associates were arrested for entering federal property under false pretenses. The group had dressed as telephone repairmen to gain access to then-Sen. Mary Landrieu’s (D-La.) office in a federal building in New Orleans. When they were nabbed, O’Keefe ended up pleading guilty to a low-level Class B misdemeanor. This misdemeanor doesn’t legally prevent O’Keefe from purchasing or owning a gun, but it’s likely that the initial charge raised a red flag in the system that stopped the sale.

NICS evidently found the correct record and removed the flag on August 14. Someone from the gun store then called O’Keefe to tell him he could buy the gun after all. This delay could have been avoided had a NICS examiner quickly located the correct record on the Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER) database; but then, to be fair, NICS has been overwhelmed with background-check requests this year.

There is, of course, nothing wrong with having a healthy mistrust of the system, but, as this was being written, it seems clear that O’Keefe was more likely a victim of government ineptitude rather than intentional malfeasance. Whatever the case, this incident does tell us that more people need to understand NICS’ imperfections and its stated purpose.

James O’Keefe

James O’Keefe, founder of Project Veritas, was delayed by the FBI’s NICS from purchasing a gun. He loudly complained.


Fighting Registration

NICS is well known to gun owners as the FBI entity that gun dealers call to clear someone who wants to buy a firearm. Gun sales have soared this year due to the uncertainties caused by the coronavirus, nationwide rioting and a potential Biden presidency. Meanwhile, though NICS has never been a perfect system, 2020 has strained the system to its limits.

You know the routine. When you decide which gun to buy, you fill out the ATF Form 4473 certifying under penalty of perjury that you are not a felon or otherwise disqualified to receive a firearm. The dealer then contacts NICS, which may clear you in a few minutes or may wait no more than three days to research its records, after which you can buy the gun if no disqualifying record pops up. If you are denied based on incorrect records, you may appeal.

NICS is required to destroy all records about the sale, except for an identifying number and the date, within 24 hours of clearing the buyer. This requirement follows a long tradition of the rejection of gun registration in American history. In light of the experiences of Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia regarding gun confiscation and tyranny, Congress declared, in the Property Requisition Act of 1941, that Second Amendment rights prohibit the registration of firearms. Legislators, when enacting the Gun Control Act of 1968, also rejected gun registration. Later, the Firearm Owners’ Protection Act of 1986 also prohibited the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (now the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives), or ATF, from creating any system to register gun owners.

In the late 1980s, the Brady anti-gun lobby was promoting a national waiting period for handgun purchases. The early bills included no background check. The NRA advocated that Congress study the feasibility of a background check with no waiting period and with a requirement that the records would be destroyed. Brady then copied the background check idea, but would have allowed the government to keep the records.

In debate, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R) argued that “the Brady bill is a step towards gun registration.” Sen. Ted Stevens (R) said, “We have all heard, my generation did, about Hitler and how, in country after country, he read the gun registration laws and took the guns away from those who had them.” Police and the federal government, he feared, would “compile lists of handgun buyers,” the goal of which was “national registration with the intent of confiscation of guns.” Thus, Stevens offered an amendment that “will not permit the registration of either a gun or a gun owner; in fact, the amendment specifically prohibits keeping any records about lawful sales.” 

NICS is only as good as its records are accurate and complete. After it became evident that some states weren’t reporting certain types of records, Congress passed the NICS Improvement Act of 2007.

The bill that finally passed in late 1993 included a temporary provision with up to a five-day waiting period mandating that state and local law enforcement conduct background checks on handgun buyers. It would be replaced by a permanent provision for an instant check by the federal government. Both versions prohibited any system of registration of firearms or firearm owners.

While the law, as signed by President Bill Clinton (D), was named the “Brady Act,” the requirement that the background check be instant and that the records be destroyed actually originated with the NRA.

The temporary provision had one fatal defect. State and local law-enforcement officers don’t work for the feds, and don’t take orders from the federal government. Sheriff Jay Printz from Montana and other sheriffs from around the country, who were busy stopping crimes in progress and solving murders, refused to take orders from Washington, D.C., to search for records on their fellow citizens who were buying handguns—they did this despite an ATF spokesman’s threat that the sheriffs could be prosecuted for not doing so.

I was privileged to represent these sheriffs in several cases all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled in Printz v. U.S. (1997), a 5-4 opinion written by Justice Antonin Scalia, that Congress may not compel the states to administer a federal regulatory program. The Tenth Amendment prohibits Congress from giving orders to local law-enforcement officers to do its bidding.

In 1998, the permanent provision kicked in, under which the FBI would do the background checks themselves. The law provides that, if a person may lawfully receive a firearm, NICS shall assign a unique number, provide the number to the dealer and “destroy all records of the system with respect to the call” (other than the number and the date) and “all records of the system relating to the person or the transfer.” A no-brainer, right?

The bombshell hit when Janet Reno, Clinton’s attorney general, of Waco tragedy fame, announced that NICS was ready to go operational. Instead of destroying the records on lawful gun purchasers, NICS would retain the full information on the firearm purchaser—name, address, race and date of birth—for six months. She called the list an “audit log” rather than gun-owner registration.

It did not matter that the law provided that no federal agency (1) may “require that any record” generated by NICS “be recorded at or transferred to a facility owned, managed or controlled by the United States,” or (2) use NICS “to establish any system for the registration of firearms, firearm owners or firearm transactions,” except of ineligible persons.

I was privileged to litigate the issue in NICS v. Reno. But in 2000, in a 2-1 opinion, the D.C. Circuit upheld Reno’s regulation on the basis that it could not understand what the word “record” meant: “What is a ‘record,’ when has it been ‘recorded,’ and what kind of ‘record’ cannot be ‘recorded?’” The law, of course, couldn’t have been clearer. Further, the court said that registering gun owners for six months wasn’t a system of registration of gun owners.

Joining in the court’s decision was Judge Merrick Garland. You’ll recall that he was President Barack Obama’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court following Justice Scalia’s death. Imagine how lopsided the Court would have become had that nomination succeeded.

In dissent, Judge David Sentelle wrote that “the Attorney General is not only making such an unauthorized power grab, but is taking action expressly forbidden by Congress.” Her excuse was that Congress didn’t say when NICS had to destroy the records. Sentelle found that “reminiscent of a petulant child pulling her sister’s hair;” her mother tells her to stop, but she does it again, with the defense: “Mama, you didn’t say I had to stop right now.”

Finally, Congress had to step in and mandate that the records of approved gun purchasers must be destroyed within 24 hours of NICS approval of the sale.

Issues with the Data
In more recent years, the law governing NICS has been amended several times. Congress passed the NICS Improvement Act of 2007, which furnished states with financial assistance to encourage full reporting and to support the restoration of rights to persons who at some time had been committed to mental institutions but were fully recovered. (Before that, having a mental-health commitment meant a lifetime ban on gun ownership.)

In 2017, the Fix NICS Act was introduced to beef up the existing requirement that the agencies send the necessary reports to NICS. It seems incredible that heads of agencies had ignored the law and, instead of being fired, had to be threatened with losing bonus pay if they continued doing so. The bill also offered the states more grants to report records.

NICS also needed fixing in another regard. As I testified in a hearing in the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, sometimes NICS denies a gun purchase based on an incorrect record. If a person who is actually eligible to purchase a firearm appeals the denial, NICS puts the onus on that person to straighten out the record with the governmental unit that originated it. The person then might find that agency to be unresponsive and, so, will be stuck in this bureaucratic limbo. NICS should thus be required to contact the originating agency directly in order to correct such records.

Unfortunately, Fix NICS passed without such an amendment. Citizens should not be deprived of due process and Second Amendment rights because some government agency maintains incomplete and inaccurate records. The attorney general could promulgate a regulation to correct the problem.

In some cases, NICS has the ability to verify whether a record is inaccurate in a matter of minutes because many court records are now online. If a rejected gun buyer claims that a federal conviction record in the NICS system is inaccurate, a NICS examiner can access the judgment of conviction, if any, with a few clicks on the computer via PACER.

Defendants are frequently over-charged with more serious crimes but are found not guilty or guilty of less serious crimes that do not disqualify such persons from purchasing a gun. I once handled a NICS appeal in which my client was originally charged with a felony but was found guilty of a misdemeanor. NICS only found the felony charge and denied the purchase. In our appeal, NICS instructed us to have the U.S. marshal in the relevant court certify the correct record, but that office wouldn’t even answer our mail. I knew NICS counsel at the time, called her up, and she quickly found the correct record through PACER.

This is in no way intended to bash NICS, which generally runs smoothly and has many dedicated employees. This year, NICS has been working through the highest number of gun sales in American history (indeed, in world history). Sales began surging at the beginning of 2020 due to the war on gun owners advocated by the Democrat presidential contenders and carried out by new legislation, escalated because of the uncertainties of the coronavirus pandemic and skyrocketed even more in reaction to the riots, looting and arson throughout this summer.

Nonetheless, law-abiding gun owners must stay vigilant so the tool isn’t corrupted by anti-gun actors in the future. NICS must never be allowed to keep records on approved buyers. Gun registration means gun confiscation.

Ryan Anderson Refutes Reason Amazon Banned Transgender Book

BY STEVEN HALL

SEE: https://www.dailysignal.com/2021/03/12/ryan-anderson-refutes-amazon-book-on-transgenderism-doesnt-call-lgbt-identity-mental-illness;

Amazon defended its decision to remove a book about transgender issues from its platform, claiming it frames “LGBTQ+ identity as a mental illness,” an assertion sharply disputed by the author. 

Amazon sent a letter Thursday to Senate Republicans Marco Rubio of Florida, Mike Lee of Utah, Mike Braun of Indiana, and Josh Hawley of Missouri. The lawmakers had written last month to Amazon asking why “When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment” by Ryan T. Anderson was no longer available for purchase on the platform.

“As to your specific question about ‘When Harry Became Sally,’ we have chosen not to sell books that frame LGBTQ+ identity as a mental illness,” Amazon Vice President for Public Policy Brian Huseman wrote of the book, which borrows its title from that of the 1989 romantic comedy film “When Harry Met Sally.”

“The only problem here is that my book does no such thing. Nowhere have I ever said or framed LGBTQ+ identity as a mental illness,” said Anderson in a written statement to The Daily Signal.

The book also discusses the American Psychiatric Association’s classification of gender dysphoria in the most recent edition of its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Amazon, curiously, still sells that.

Amazon said that it provides “access to a variety of viewpoints, including books that some customers may find objectionable.” The letter goes on to say, “That said, we reserve the right not to sell certain content. All retailers make decisions about what selection they choose to offer, as do we.”

Amazon sold 53% of all books in the U.S. and 80% of all ebooks, according to The Wall Street Journal. As such, removing a book from Amazon’s platform would have a significant impact on sales and profits for the author.

This isn’t the first time a Big Tech company has removed content from its platform. YouTube removed a Daily Signal video from Dr. Michelle Cretella, executive director of the American College of Pediatricians, “for violating YouTube’s policy on hate speech.”

Cretella made a point in the video that there’s no push to allow patients suffering from body integrity identity disorder to amputate limbs, yet there’s an influential movement for people to transition out of their biological gender.

“See, if you want to cut off a leg or an arm, you’re mentally ill, but if you want to cut off healthy breasts or a penis, you’re transgender,” Cretella noted in the removed video.

YouTube also removed last year a Heritage Foundation video of a panel discussion that featured Walt Heyer, an author who transitioned and lived for eight years as a transgender woman before transitioning back.

“This is a childhood development disorder,” he said in reference to gender dysphoria in children.

The following is Anderson’s full statement on Amazon’s censoring of his book:

Amazon justified its decision to delist my book, claiming it has decided “not to sell books that frame LGBTQ+ identity as a mental illness.” The only problem here is that my book does no such thing. Nowhere have I ever said or framed LGBTQ+ identity as a mental illness. 

The phrase “mental illness” does occur in the book twice—but not in my own voice: once quoting a “transwoman” writing in The New York Times, and once quoting the current University Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins.

The book also discusses the American Psychiatric Association’s classification of gender dysphoria in the most recent edition of its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Amazon, curiously, still sells that. Gender dysphoria is listed in the most widely respected and consulted book on psychiatric disorders because it is a serious condition that causes great suffering.

There is a debate, however, which Amazon is seeking to shut down, about how best to help patients who experience gender dysphoria. “When Harry Became Sally” is an important contribution, praised by medical experts, to that conversation. Amazon’s delisting of it cuts off vital political and cultural discussion about important matters when we need it most.

The timing of Amazon’s move is highly suspicious, coming the weekend before Congress voted on a radical transgender bill—the so-called “Equality Act”—of which I am one of the most outspoken critics. It seems that Amazon is using its massive power to distort the marketplace of ideas and is deceiving its own customers.

American Thought Leaders: Dr. Warren Farrell-Why Biden’s New Gender Policy Council Is Sexist

Boys are four times as likely to commit suicide than girls between the ages of 15 and 19. They’re also significantly more likely to drop out of school, become homeless, and end up in prison, says Dr. Warren Farrell. Yet, President Biden’s newly established Gender Policy Council focuses only on the problems faced by females and completely ignores the problems faced by men and boys, like absent fatherhood—the single biggest predictor of suicide, says Dr. Farrell. Dr. Farrell has been researching and writing about gender issues since the 1960s. As a longtime feminist and the only man to be elected three times to the Board of Directors of the National Organization for Women in New York City, he is an unlikely critic of the Gender Policy Council.
