Tony DeLuca is not exactly a household name, and he would probably have preferred it that way. Instead of garnering big headlines and moving on to higher office, Tony was just a solid, standup guy, a reliable Democrat, serving in the Pennsylvania State House for a staggering twenty terms. First elected in 1982, Tony gave his all for the people he loved right up until the day he died at the age of 85 on October 9, 2022.

On Tuesday, a day short of a month after Tony’s death, the voters of Pennsylvania’s 32nd district showed their gratitude to this selfless public servant for his forty years of service to their community in a unique and memorable way: They elected him to a twenty-first term. Do you think Senator-elect John Fetterman, who can’t utter a coherent sentence, is bad? Meet Dead State Representative Tony DeLuca.

Tony is unlikely to be in any condition to serve out his next term, but you can’t fault him for trying. At 85, he was barely five years older than our sharp and sprightly alleged president of the United States, and just three years older than outgoing (hooray) House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Grey Goose). Tony was younger than Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-Cali. SSR), Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), and Richard Shelby (R-Ala.). Politicians at all levels are clinging to power long into their declining years these days; why should Tony DeLuca have been any different? So Pennsylvania voters couldn’t be faulted for supporting an octogenarian — if you don’t, you’re a white supremacist or an election denier or whatever the term du jour is for our moral superiors.

But there is that little other detail, the one that makes John Fetterman look like a picture of eloquence and energy by comparison. Yes, I’m referring to the inconvenient fact that good old Tony DeLuca is dead. Remember, he died a month before the election. That gave the voters of the 32nd district thirty days to discover that Tony had shuffled off this mortal coil and decided to vote for someone a bit more animated. That also gave the Democrats of Pennsylvania’s 32nd district thirty days to find a candidate who was actually breathing and announce that he or she or xe was taking Tony’s place.

Instead, Tony DeLuca was comfortably reelected. So what happened? Are Pennsylvania voters, or at very least those in the 32nd district, so woefully uninformed that they didn’t even notice that they were pulling the lever for a dead guy? Were they sitting on a folding chair in some hall Tuesday night, waiting uncomfortably for Tony to come out and give his victory speech and wondering where the heck he was? Are the voters who elected the vacant and incoherent John Fetterman really just finding their own level? And since they’re as vacant and incoherent as Fetterman himself, they didn’t realize that Tony DeLuca had somehow changed and just wasn’t saying or doing as much as he used to.

Or did voters in Pennsylvania’s 32nd district know full well that Tony was dead but voted for him anyway because they knew that even though the local Democrats spent the last month ignoring their very own 800-pound gorilla, the dead candidate in the room, they would eventually get around to replacing him? Are the voters of Pennsylvania’s 32nd district so complacent and indifferent that they trust the local Democrats to pick someone, anyone, who will carry out the Left’s agenda, and they really don’t care who it is? If that’s the case, imagine the embarrassment of these blandly trusting ideologues if the Dems pick someone who doesn’t end up toeing the line in every particular. Of course, that’s unlikely to happen. Being a Leftist these days means falling into line and adopting an unthinking conformism regarding all things, so the good people of the 32nd district can rest easy.

Meanwhile, the reelection of Tony DeLuca puts John Fetterman’s election to the Senate into perspective. No one can now say with any accuracy that Fetterman was the worst candidate on the ballot in 2022 or even the worst in Pennsylvania. Tony also represents, in his present condition, the ideal candidate for the Democrats of our time, even more than Fetterman himself does. What they want is someone like Joe Biden, only more so: someone who will do the bidding of the people who are pulling the strings, without argument or hesitation. John Fetterman is simply not capable of doing anything else, and neither is Tony DeLuca. Hey, the body of the philosopher Jeremy Bentham, who died in 1832, is on permanent display at University College London. Pennsylvania Democrats could work out a similar arrangement for Tony DeLuca, the ideal Democrat state representative.

Homemade energy crisis? Another refinery, owned by Chevron, goes up in flames – sabotage of oil infrastructure?

Homemade energy crisis? Another refinery, owned by Chevron, goes up in flames – sabotage of oil infrastructure?

The night of the midterm election, another oil refinery, this one owned by Chevron and located in El Segundo, Calif., caught fire under mysterious circumstances.

Firefighters were called to the scene, which was described as a “massive fire” – see the video below. Officials say they have no idea how the fire started.

The next day, Reuters reported that the “isolated fire” occurred inside Chevron’s 269,000-barrel-per-day (BPD) refinery and is now extinguished.

None of the facility’s “major processes units” were affected, the same report claimed. (Related: In September, numerous oil refineries in Ohio mysteriously caught fire and had to be shut down.)

Firefighters were able to fully extinguish the fire around 8:35 p.m. PST not long after the polls closed and votes were being counted.

A company spokesman from Chevron claims the fire did not impact the refinery’s ability to supply petroleum products to customers throughout the Southern California region.

Chevron facility where fire occurred produces 20% of vehicle fuel, 40% of jet fuel across Southern California

The fire began not long before 6:13 p.m. when dispatch was called. It was considered to be a “two-level alarm” affecting El Segundo, as well as nearby Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, and Lose Angeles County.

According to Chevron’s website, the El Segundo refinery in question supplies 20 percent of all motor vehicle fuel across Southern California. It also supplies 40 percent of all jet fuel consumed across the southland.

The incident occurred at a time when gasoline prices across California are soaring to $6 a gallon and beyond. They dipped slightly before the midterm election, but are now expected to increase by another $1 per gallon moving into December.

Meanwhile, “planned work” is said to be scheduled at two competitor refineries near Chevron’s refinery. These include Marathon’s 363,000-BPD refinery in Los Angeles and Valero’s 145,000-BPD refinery in San Francisco.

Is this all just a coincidence, or are these fires and “planned work” events being coordinated to further take down America’s fossil fuel supplies, and thus our country’s energy independence?

Keep in mind that many other refineries have also been hit with mysterious fires in recent months, as have a spate of food production facilities all across the country. Is this ecoterrorism and depopulation at work?

“Joe said no more oil,” wrote a commenter about the matter, referring, of course, to fake president Joe Biden and his anti-fossil fuel agenda. “First it was food supplies; now they are going after fuel capabilities.”

Another wrote that “they do this every time they need an excuse to increase prices even further.”

“It’s part of their playbook,” this person added.

If this is all planned as many believe it is, then the country, and presumably the world, is about to undergo a massive de-industrialization transformation, which means lots of depopulation as well.

“The ‘green’ movement will take us back to the Stone Age,” interjected another commenter. “There is no such thing as ‘global warming.’ Even the term ‘fossil fuels’ is a misnomer. The earth produces all the energy we need.”

“This will adversely affect the prices California consumers pay at the pump,” added another to the conversation – though many would contend that the rest of the country will suffer, too.

“Only thing is while the Chevron refinery fire will be local to CA, the halt of crude oil from SPR (strategic petroleum reserves) will have a nationwide effect.”

Civil rights sell-out: Biden State Department gives law enforcement, intelligence agencies unrestricted access to personal data on millions of Americans

Image: Civil rights sell-out: Biden State Department gives law enforcement, intelligence agencies unrestricted access to personal data on millions of Americans


SEE: https://www.naturalnews.com/2022-11-11-biden-state-department-access-personal-data.html;

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

(Natural News) The personal data of more than 145 million Americans are being indiscriminately handed over by the Biden regime’s State Department to various law enforcement and intelligence agencies for illegal and unconstitutional probing, according to a letter sent from Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) to Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

Without any proper legal due process or apparent oversight, Biden’s State Department is reportedly pulling private information from people’s passport applications without their knowledge or consent and passing it off to other government agencies. Wyden’s letter is part of an ongoing investigation into Operation Whistle Pig, a wide-ranging leak investigation launched by a Border Patrol agent and several of his supervisors at the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol’s National Targeting Center.

“I write to express serious concern that the Department of State is providing law enforcement and intelligence agencies with unfettered access to personal data, originally collected through passport applications, of the more than 145 million Americans with a passport,” Wyden’s letter reads.

It adds that “the breadth of this access highlights the potential for other abuses. In a July 13, 2022, briefing for my office, State Department officials confirmed that 25 other federal agencies have access to the Department’s database of passport applications.” (Related: In April, Biden’s State Department issued a memo claiming that covid “most likely” escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China.)

The Biden regime is an unlawful and unconstitutional regime

Among the data being collected from Americans and passed from the federal government to law enforcement and intelligence groups are names, addresses, birth dates, biometric data like fingerprints and facial images, email addresses, phone numbers, gender, race, Social Security numbers, and other private information.

“The [State] Department’s mission does not include providing dozens of other government agencies with self-service access to 145 million Americans’ personal data,” Wyden’s letter goes on to state.

“The Department has voluntarily taken on this role, and in doing so, prioritized the interests of other agencies over those of law-abiding Americans. While there is a legitimate role for the use of this information by law enforcement, the current unregulated system of interagency access to millions of Americans’ records goes far beyond what a reasonable person would expect or tolerate.”

There is no legal requirement that the State Department provide any of this information upon request, except through a normal legal process such as a subpoena or court order. In this case, there is none of that present, which means the Biden regime is committing an unconstitutional act.

It remains unknown the level to which each of the 25 law enforcement and intelligence agencies on the dole has access to said data. Some may only have access to a small amount of it while others have full access – we just do not know because there is no transparency.

Wyden also alleges that a Border Patrol agent misused government databases to pursue a rogue leak investigation into a news reporter and her relationship with a congressional staffer. The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) launched a probe into these allegations, as well as into the work of said Border Patrol agent.

What the OIG investigation has uncovered thus far as part of a more than 500-page unredacted report forms the basis of the Operation Whistle Pig investigation, which you can learn more about at this link.

“Abuses of this access came to light through a report of an investigation by the Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General (OIG) into activities at Customs and Border Protection (CBP),” a letter about the investigation states.

Vermont High School Backs Down Over “Transgender” Incident After ADF Files a First Amendment Lawsuit

Vermont High School Backs Down Over “Transgender” Incident After ADF Files a First Amendment Lawsuit


SEE: https://thenewamerican.com/vermont-high-school-backs-down-over-transgender-incident-after-adf-files-a-first-amendment-lawsuit/;

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

Lawyers representing Randolph Union High School (RUHS) in Randolph, Vermont, persuaded school officials to drop their threats of punishment upon receiving a 124-page lawsuit filed by the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF).

At issue: the school’s determination to force its transgender policies upon a 14-year-old girl and her father. For daring to question those policies — i.e., complaining when a male who declared himself to be a female entered the girls’ locker room to observe them undressing — RUHS officials demanded that the student, Blake Allen, “take part in a restorative circle … to help her understand the rights of [transgender] students to access public accommodation … in a manner consistent with their [self-proclaimed] gender identity.”

School officials also demanded that her father, Travis Allen, apologize for a Facebook post challenging the mother of the transgender male/female over the veracity of a Facebook post she made defending her transgender male/female son/daughter.

ADF reviewed the incident:

Travis Allen and his fourteen-year-old daughter, Blake, were punished for expressing their views on a matter of profound public concern: whether a teenage male who identifies as female should be permitted to change in a girls’ locker room regardless of the discomfort experienced by girls in that room.

In objecting to a male being in the room while the girls are changing, Travis and Blake each made comments underscoring that the trans-identifying student is in fact a male, including by using male pronouns.

Indeed, their view of the student’s maleness was foundational to their opinions on appropriate use of the locker room.

Yet, their remarks were too much for Defendants’ transgender orthodoxy — Travis was deemed to have “misgendered” the student, while Blake was found guilty of “harassment” and “bullying” — so Defendants disciplined both of them.

ADF claimed that by doing so the school officials violated the Allens’ First and Fourteenth Amendment rights:

Defendants are state actors and violate the First Amendment when they attempt to dictate what may be said on matters of public concern.

And they cannot discriminate against speech on the basis of its viewpoint.

Yet, that is exactly what happened here. Defendants punished Travis and Blake for saying that a male is a male, as a matter of sex and biology, regardless of the gender identity that the male has assumed.

On September 21 a male who identifies as a female entered the girls’ locker room while the girls were changing. Many of them got upset and demanded that he leave. Their parents called the principals to complain.

The next day Blake expressed her thoughts on the incident to some of her classmates, exclaiming, “[he] literally is a dude,” who “does not belong in the girls’ locker room.”

That triggered school officials into conducting an “investigation,” after which it was concluded that Blake was guilty of “harassment on the basis of gender identity” and needed to be punished:

Defendants also seek to coerce her to agree with their transgender dogma. In addition to giving Blake two days’ out-of-school suspension, Defendants are requiring her to “[t]ake part in a restorative circle with … our Equity Coordinator and at least two students who can help her understand the rights of students to access public accommodations … in a manner consistent with their gender identity,” and “submit a reflective essay.”

Defendants intend to render their own judgment on this reflective essay; and if they deem it “lacking good faith,” Blake will be required to serve an additional three days’ out-of-school suspension.

Blake’s father, Travis, got involved when he responded to the following Facebook post by the mother of the son/daughter:

I am the mother of the trans student in question and my [son] daughter did not make any comments at all. The entire team can back this up, other than the girl that made up the story for attention.

This is slander, defamation of character, and we have secured a lawyer….

Travis responded:

I am the father of the girl you claim “made up a story for attention.” The truth is your son watched my daughter and multiple other girls change in the locker room. While he got a free show they got violated.

You think this is fine and dandy. I wonder how you would feel if I watched you undress?

For that transgression school officials demanded that Travis apologize, and ended a contract it had with him as coach of the school’s girls’ soccer team.

Claimed the ADF in its lawsuit:

The First Amendment does not countenance this kind of government censorship, where a public school mandates that students and coaches refrain from expressing any view that offends its prescribed views, particularly on an issue as important as whether the school should permit males identifying as girls to undress, shower and change in the girls’ locker room.

Travis and Blake Allen were entitled to express their views on that issue and, in expressing those views, to support them with what is a biological fact — that a biological teenage male is, indeed, a male.

This case presents a textbook example of unconstitutional viewpoint discrimination, and Plaintiffs are entitled to all appropriate relief.

ADF summed up their argument:

By requiring Blake Allen to take part in a “restorative circle” to help her “understand the rights of students to access public accommodations … in a manner consistent with their gender identity” and “submit a reflective essay” that meets Defendants’ own standards in order to avoid additional out-of-school suspension, Defendants are seeking to compel her to speak in violation of the First and Fourteenth Amendments.

By requiring Travis Allen to issue a public apology for his September 29 Facebook post as a condition to be reinstated as a coach, Defendants are seeking to compel him to speak in violation of the First and Fourteenth Amendments.

The state of Vermont has created this problem by its willingness to buy into the current fad of “transgenderism.” It states that

  1. All students have a gender identity that is self-determined;
  2. All persons, including students attending school, have privacy rights.

Vermont defines “transgender” as “an individual whose gender identity or gender expression is different from the individual’s assigned sex at birth.”

Conflict is therefore inevitable, yet it never existed when the Genesis account was considered the basis of all law. Genesis 1:27, if Vermont state officials would follow it, eliminates the conflict: “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them.”

After reviewing the lawsuit, school officials backed down. Said ADF: “Shortly after filing the lawsuit, counsel for the school officials notified ADF attorneys that the superintendent was rescinding the disciplinary actions.”

Soros Shelled Out Millions for Far-left DAs Who Swept Midterms

https://thenewamerican.com/soros-shelled-out-billions-for-far-left-das-who-swept-midterms/Soros Shelled Out Millions for Far-left DAs Who Swept Midterms

As voters continue the agonizing wait for midterm election results of key races in Arizona, Georgia, and Nevada, they at least know something about the balance of power in the office of state district attorneys: Several radical progressive candidates who soared to victory in landslide wins were backed by mega-billionaire globalist George Soros.

A new report by Fox Digital News that searched election results and finance records found that at least four prosecutor candidates received significant funding from the leftist financier, who funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars into their races and the races of others he has supported previously.

According to the Fox News investigation, Soros’ “district attorney operation” is led by veteran treasurer Whitney Tomas, who sets up “pop-up” political action committees (PAC) in states where he seeks out candidates to support and then pours piles of money into these newly established PACs, which disbanded after the elections.

“Tomas established committees on the city level, such as in Philadelphia for District Attorney Larry Krasner,” reported the outlet, noting that the probe “solely covered state databases, which means there could be more candidates.”

In the November general elections, progressive candidates in Texas, Maine, and Iowa sailed easily to victory with the help of Soros’ financial backing.

Iowa’s Polk County Democratic primary candidate Kimberly Graham received more than $300,000 in Soros cash this past summer. Graham breezed past Republican defense attorney Allan Richards in the midterms by a margin of 14 percentage points.

Elsewhere, the Maine Justice and Public Safety PAC bankrolled Democratic candidate Jackie Sartoris with $300,000 of the billionaire’s funds to help her defeat Cumberland County’s Democratic District Attorney Jonathan Sahrbeck in a June primary. Sartoris ran without Republican or Independent opposition and was favored to win the general election.

Soros’ donations also aided Texas candidates Joe Gonzalez and John Creuzot, for Bexar County district attorney and Dallas County district attorney, respectively, both of whom had their careers jump-started by Soros years ago. Gonzalez staved off Republican challenger Marc LaHood, while Creuzot cruised past Republican challenger Faith Johnson by a margin of 20 percentage points.

Such lavish spending — estimated to be $130 million for the 2022 midterms — injected into the campaigns of far-left district attorneys is just the latest attempt by Soros to overhaul the American criminal-justice system. Soros cash has helped DAs from Krasner in Philadelphia and Kim Foxx in Chicago to Kim Gardner in St. Louis and George Gascon in Los Angeles to cripple cities and make them uninhabitable owing to rampant crime, drugs, and homelessness.

The business magnate’s Open Society Foundations, which funds a vast array of projects to companies and private individuals “working for justice, democratic governance, and human rights,” in 2020 alone pledged $70 million to social-justice initiatives that were part of a more significant $220 million effort for racial equality.

As Fox reported, Soros has additionally pushed for abolishing the police. “In 2019 and 2020, his Foundation to Promote Open Society, a nonprofit in his sprawling network, earmarked $4.5 million to the Community Resource Hub for Safety and Responsibility,” wrote the outlet.

Moreover, Soros’ Open Society Policy Center, his advocacy nonprofit, also pushed a $500,000 donation into the failed 2021 effort to “dismantle” and replace the Minneapolis Police Department. Democratic Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar strongly supported the effort spearheaded by far-left activists and Soros cash.

While the radical agenda of the far left has gripped many facets of American society, residents rejecting the soft-on-crime policies peddled by Soros DAs are making strides as well. Recall efforts have successfully ousted woke DAs such as San Francisco’s Chesa Boudin over rising crime concerns, effectively stalling the movement toward more lenient prosecution. Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón, a Boudin ally, and predecessor, was also facing a recall that ultimately fell short of the signatures needed to move forward. Still, the electorate is becoming increasingly intolerant of dangerous policies that have ruined once-beautiful and bustling cities and made life unlivable for many families and children.  

Billionaires such as Soros have the luxury of not only injecting their money into the funds for left-wing causes for which they feel strongly, but they can also use their money to move the future of this country in a certain direction. As reformed radical Maajid Nawaz recently told Fox News's Tucker Carlson, “the truth is the ruling class is funding extremism. We must understand those above politics is finance and above finance is ideas, and that the direction people want to take civilization toward is the direction that they take their finances.”

Still, the question remains as to why — despite the millions of dollars poured into these radical candidates — voters elect people such as Graham and Sartoris, promoting their anti-American agenda and contributing to the destruction of this great nation.

Trump Unloads on DeSantis AGAIN

RE: GOVERNOR DESANTIS; Trump said: “If he did run, I will tell you things about him that won’t be very flattering. I know more about him than anybody other than perhaps his wife, who is really running his campaign.”

I was shocked to see Kenneth Copeland with Donald Trump. With John Macarthur, Voddie Baucham, and Paula White.

Former President Trump unloaded on Florida Governor DeSantis today in an email to supporters. Here’s the email in its entirety. Read it for yourself, and then I have a few questions.

NewsCorp, which is Fox, the Wall Street Journal, and the no longer great New York Post (bring back Col!), is all in for Governor Ron DeSanctimonious, an average REPUBLICAN Governor with great Public Relations, who didn’t have to close up his State, but did, unlike other Republican Governors, whose overall numbers for a Republican, were just average—middle of the pack—including COVID, and who has the advantage of SUNSHINE, where people from badly run States up North would go no matter who the Governor was, just like I did!

Ron came to me in desperate shape in 2017—he was politically dead, losing in a landslide to a very good Agriculture Commissioner, Adam Putnam, who was loaded up with cash and great poll numbers. Ron had low approval, bad polls, and no money, but he said that if I would Endorse him, he could win. I didn’t know Adam so I said, “Let’s give it a shot, Ron.” When I Endorsed him, it was as though, to use a bad term, a nuclear weapon went off. Years later, they were the exact words that Adam Putnam used in describing Ron’s Endorsement. He said, “I went from having it made, with no competition, to immediately getting absolutely clobbered after your Endorsement.” I then got Ron by the “Star” of the Democrat Party, Andrew Gillum (who was later revealed to be a “Crack Head”), by having two massive Rallies with tens of thousands of people at each one. I also fixed his campaign, which had completely fallen apart. I was all in for Ron, and he beat Gillum, but after the Race, when votes were being stolen by the corrupt Election process in Broward County, and Ron was going down ten thousand votes a day, along with now-Senator Rick Scott, I sent in the FBI and the U.S. Attorneys, and the ballot theft immediately ended, just prior to them running out of the votes necessary to win. I stopped his Election from being stolen…

And now, Ron DeSanctimonious is playing games! The Fake News asks him if he’s going to run if President Trump runs, and he says, “I’m only focused on the Governor’s race, I’m not looking into the future.” Well, in terms of loyalty and class, that’s really not the right answer.

This is just like 2015 and 2016, a Media Assault (Collusion!), when Fox News fought me to the end until I won, and then they couldn’t have been nicer or more supportive. The Wall Street Journal loved Low Energy Jeb Bush, and a succession of other people as they rapidly disappeared from sight, finally falling in line with me after I easily knocked them out, one by one. We’re in exactly the same position now. They will keep coming after us, MAGA, but ultimately, we will win. Put America First and, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

So there it is. Trump, who said he voted for DeSantis in Florida’s gubernatorial election on Tuesday, attacked DeSantis for the third time in a week. The first was a few days before the election at a rally for Marco Rubio. “Let’s see, there it is,” Trump said, pointing to a screen with some poll numbers displayed. “Trump at 71. Ron DeSanctimonious at 10 percent. Mike Pence at 7 — oh, Mike’s doing better than I thought.”

Related: Did Trump Just Go Too Far by Threatening DeSantis Not To Run Against Him?

Then, on his private plane heading home from a rally in Ohio, Trump threatened DeSantis: “If he runs, he runs,” Trump said. “If he did run, I will tell you things about him that won’t be very flattering. I know more about him than anybody other than perhaps his wife, who is really running his campaign.”

Thus far, DeSantis has not responded to any of the attacks and has been cagey when asked whether he plans to run for president in 2024. My colleague Spencer Brown at Townhall has a rundown of conservatives who were not happy with Trump’s attacks here if you care to read them.

Exit questions: Does this help or hurt Trump? Does it help or hurt DeSantis? Does it make you less likely to support one or the other? Should DeSantis credit Trump for his success? Are the attacks on DeSantis’s COVID-19 policies fair? Should DeSantis respond in kind or continue to lie low? Is Trump the only person who can carry the America First mantle?

First U.S. Lawsuit Filed to Stop Transing the Kids

First Lawsuit Filed in the U.S. to Stop Medical Professionals from Transing the Kids


SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/stacey-lennox/2022/11/11/first-lawsuit-filed-in-the-u-s-to-stop-medical-professionals-from-transing-the-kids-n1644944;

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

The Center for American Liberty (CAL), founded by attorney Harmeet Dhillon, announced the first U.S. lawsuit against medical personnel for providing medical and surgical gender transition services. Providers who prescribed puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones and performed a double mastectomy on Chloe Cole when she was still a minor are named. Now, Cole is 18 years old and an outspoken detransitioner. She appears at rallies to end the medical and surgical gender transition of children.

On Thursday evening, Dhillon and Cole appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight to announce the lawsuit. Cole explained how medical professionals treated her gender dysphoria and counseled her parents. Carlson explained how gender clinics that provide medical and surgical transition to children are starting to close. Vanderbilt University Medical Center suspended operations at its pediatric gender clinic after investigative journalism from Matt Walsh at The Daily Wire. In the U.K., the Tavistock gender clinic was closed after a lawsuit. Since the judgment, additional parents have filed lawsuits against the clinic. “Litigation stops mutilation,” Carlson emphasized.

Then, Carlson asked Cole why she was suing. She said, “It is a medical malpractice case. I want to hold the adults that put me in harm’s way accountable because, I mean, what happened to me is horrible. But also, it didn’t only happen to me. That’s the worst part.” As outspoken as Cole has been as a detransitioner, she knows the harassment and criticism she will face. You only need to look at her Twitter timeline or the comments on videos of her speaking to see the trans activists’ vitriol. Children are brave, strong, and celebrated when they come out as transgender. They get harassed, demeaned, and censored when they speak out about their regret or their journey back to living as their biological sex.

Chloe continued, “It’s happening to children all over the U.S., all over the West, and it’s spreading all over the world. I want to be able to create a precedent for other people who have been in my situation to find justice for themselves.” Cole told Carlson she started her transition at the age of 13. Carlson asked Cole if she believed the doctors when they told her she could become a boy. She said she did and that her parents believed them also.

Cole came out as transgender at the age of 12 after suffering from feelings of gender confusion since the age of nine. After Cole told her pediatrician and her parents, the family sought professional help. Doctors immediately affirmed her desire to be a male without any questions or assessments of her psychological and emotional health. According to the Notice of Intent to Sue, Cole had additional diagnoses of ADHD and Disruptive Behavior Disorder at that time. The pending lawsuit is against physicians in the Kaiser Permanente Network.

When Carlson asked Cole about the treatments she received, Cole shared, “When I was 15 years old, I had a double mastectomy. They removed both of my breasts, and I will never have them back. As an adult, I never will be able to breastfeed whatever children I will have. I don’t even know if, because I was put on puberty blockers and testosterone at only 13 years old, I don’t know if I will be able to conceive a child naturally. I made an adult decision as a child.”

Cole says now she is devastated by what happened to her during treatment. She says the loss of her female physique and the other open questions are tough for her to deal with. Cole also asserts she has other health issues linked to the treatments she received, describing herself as “quite sickly.” According to the filing, she suffers from high red blood cells after taking testosterone. This condition creates an increased risk for cardiovascular disease, coronary heart disease, and death.

Cole also has physical characteristics that are irreversible other than the double mastectomy. The filing asserts, “Her voice is now a lower pitch and is not as feminine, which greatly troubles her. Several of her female physical attributes were negatively affected, causing her extreme emotional distress. This includes the loss of her otherwise healthy breasts and the stunted development of the female curvature of her body and face.” Cole also suffers distress about the potential for future health conditions related to cross-sex hormone therapy.
