Bill Clinton’s Commie Secretary of Labor Says Trump Must Be Barred From Running Again

"Robert B. Reich was Bill Clinton’s labor secretary; since then he has been keeping busy teaching at Berkeley and gracing us all with his punditry on Twitter, where he has a million and a half followers. Reich has become notorious for his unhinged far-Left rants; on Monday, he showed yet again why he has gained a reputation as an upscale Keith Olbermann. In the UK’s neo-Stalinist Guardian, Reich called for Donald Trump to be barred from running for president again — to preserve what Leftists love to call “our democracy,” by which they mean their hegemony.

Why should the current Republican front-runner be barred from running? Reich says it’s because he “committed treason just over two years ago.” Reich complains that Trump is “running for re-election, despite the explicit language of section three of the 14th amendment to the constitution, which prohibits anyone who has held public office and who has engaged in insurrection against the United States from ever again serving in public office.”

The Fourteenth Amendment does indeed bar from the presidency, as well as from Congress, anyone who has “engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.” It was adopted in the aftermath of the Civil War, so as to prevent Southern states from sending former Confederates to represent them in Washington, and has become quite popular among Democrats today as a means they have tried to use to disqualify Republicans who don’t think the 2020 election was entirely free of chicanery."

Elon Musk Drops Truth Bomb on Transing Children

This week, Twitter CEO Elon Musk voiced his disapproval of “gender transition” for minors and went on to describe the term “cisgender” as a “slur” in a series of tweets. He cited a Swedish study on “gender-affirming care” that indicated that cosmetic “transition” does not lessen the likelihood of suicide.

Musk argued that minors should wait until they are mature enough to make decisions before undergoing any serious physical changes and not leave those decisions to other adults.

“The Swedish study says ‘sex-reassigned transsexual persons of both genders had approximately a three times higher risk of all-cause mortality than controls,’” Musk said in a later tweet.

“If we take as given that the other study 2–3X suicide rate is correct, then doing surgery or chemical sterilization on minors gain nothing in reduced mortality,” he continued. “My position is simply that we should wait until an individual is mature enough to make their own decisions before other adults make permanent serious physical changes to them.”

“The counter to my position would be that if we don’t make the changes when they’re a minor, they may never reach adulthood due to suicide,” Musk added. “However, that counterargument does not hold water if mortality is essentially unchanged, which it is.”

A similar study conducted by the nonprofit organization Sex Matters in the United Kingdom found that the alleged benefits of “gender-affirming care” are “no greater than a placebo effect.”

In July, England’s only transgender clinic closed due to concerns that doctors were performing surgeries without considering children’s mental health. A few months later, the National Health Service (NHS) banned puberty blockers in most cases and no longer recommends social transitioning for kids. In December, the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare (NBHW) stopped recommending that children with gender identity issues undergo so-called “gender-affirming care.”

“The ‘gender-affirming’ model of care for teenagers is based on evidence that falls apart under examination,” the group said. “There is strong evidence that this medical pathway causes physical harm. It can lead to infertility and loss of future sexual function; among multiple side effects, bone health suffers.”

Sadly, the Biden administration doesn’t care about the facts and is actively assisting in the brainwashing and butchering of American children. Dr. Richard “Rachel” Levine, Joe Biden’s assistant secretary for health, claims that “there is no argument” about “gender-affirming care” among pediatricians and doctors who specialize in adolescents.

As disheartening as this is, it is encouraging to see influential people like Elon Musk and author J.K. Rowling speak out against this assault on children. Earlier this year, Rowling called transitioning children “one of the worst medical scandals in a century.” Even leftist comedian Bill Maher acknowledges that transgenderism has become trendy and that it should be questioned.

“If we can’t admit that, in certain enclaves, there is some level of trendiness to the idea of being anything other than straight, then this is not a serious, science-based discussion. It’s a blow being struck in the culture wars using children as cannon fodder,” he said last year.

Proponents of radical leftist gender theory may have a strong hold on education, and Hollywood. Heck, even the medical industry has been poisoned by it. This is why those who are willing to speak out — even those with whom we don’t normally agree — must be supported and encouraged to speak the truth.

Five Big Favors Biden Has Done for His Commie Sugar Daddies in Beijing

Five Big Favors Biden Has Done for His Commie Sugar Daddies in Beijing

Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.), the master-blaster of the House Oversight Committee,  claims as many as 12 members of the Biden crime family have snuggled up to the udder on the Chinese communist cash cow.

Comer claims the committee has found a bumper crop of wire transfers from Chinese pinkos that were sent to a friend of Hunter Biden’s named “Walker” and thence on to various Biden bank accounts.

“There’s not going to be anybody left for a Christmas picture if the [Department of Justice] did their job and went in there and indicted everyone that has any type of fingerprints involved in this influence-peddling scheme,” Comer joked to Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo. “I mean, it’s the entire family, and there isn’t a single one of those family members that had the ability to do anything to influence foreign policy other than the big guy, Joe Biden.”

So what, exactly, has President* Biden done for our foremost adversaries on the world stage?

He has given them almost everything they want:

1: World Health Organization Control Over the U.S.

Shortly after being inaugurated — before the inauguration ball — Joe Biden rejoined the World Health Organization (WHO) on his very first day in office. Trump had pulled us out when he saw too much red.

I’ve been sounding the alarm that the WHO has become a coffee klatch of commie nonsense, but don’t take my word for it.

FACT-O-RAMA! Astonishingly, the Biden administration is negotiating with the WHO to give the pinkos the right to handle our next “pandemic.” The WHO may also be given the right to spy on those of us who refuse to bend our knees and raise our sleeves for any future “vaccines.” The commies will also have the ability to mandate vaccines — and lockdowns — for the United States.

This means the WHO — which, again, is run by a die-hard communist and ran interference for China in regards to their handling of the COVID outbreak — will have incredible control over We the People.

2: TikTok Ban Reversal

On June 9, 2021, 140 days into his term, Gropey Biden scrapped the Trump-era executive order to ban TikTok and WeChat in the United States. Biden reversed that order, allowing China to continue to spy on every American who used one or both of these apps, then weakly called for reviews of any apps that may be linked to any foreign adversary.

China is the only country with both the intent to reshape the international order and, increasingly, the economic, diplomatic, military, and technological power to do it. — Secretary of State Anthony Blinken

3: Ending Trump’s China Initiative

Despite a flurry of Chinese spooks — from college campuses to Rep. Eric Swallwell’s bed — Biden, unbelievably, decided that chasing them was somehow “racist” and ended the Trump-era spy-hunting “Chinese Initiative.”

“We gave up,” a former official from the Justice Department lamented. “You know the champagne corks will be popping at CCP offices. They won the disinformation campaign.”

The Biden regime set out to replace the China Initiative with a “broader” look at spies from various countries, despite these words from an FBI spokesperson:

The threat from the Chinese government stands apart. No government poses a broader, more severe threat to our ideas, innovation, and economic security than the government of China does. Together with the Department of Justice and our other partners in the U.S. government, the private sector, and around the world, we will remain relentless countering the Chinese government in the long fight already underway, using every lawful weapon at our disposal – one of which will remain our adherence to the rule of law.

4: Spy Balloon Right-of-way

Just when you thought Biden couldn’t kiss Xi Xinping’s pigu anymore, he obeisantly allowed the Chinese spy balloon to traverse the nation undeterred.

U.S. officials watched the balloon from the moment it lifted off from China. We had plenty of time to shoot it down over the largely unpopulated Aleutian Islands. Instead, Biden allowed it to hover over American bases — some of which house nuclear missiles — and soak up all the intel China wanted. Biden wouldn’t shoot the balloon down until it had finished its mission and relayed the intel to Beijing then floated over the Atlantic Ocean.

5: An Open Southern Border

Whereas many American are angry about the mass flood of illegal immigrants over our southern border — as we should be — many aren’t aware that China is sneaking billions of dollars of lethal fentanyl over as well.

Roughly 80,000 Americans, many of whom are teens, overdose and die on Chinese fentanyl every year. In four years of Biden in the White House, we can estimate that 320,000 Americans will die taking fentanyl. That’s more than American combat fatalities in WWII. Many victims won’t even know they are ingesting the drug.

But Biden’s Chinese wire-pullers want their cheddar, so our Cuck-in-Chief allows the catastrophe to continue. Heaven forbid our president fall on his sword to save hundreds of thousands of American lives.

With more evidence coming from the Oversight Committee every week, it’s becoming increasingly clear that Biden won’t take his tongue off of Xi’s boot anytime soon. The First Family can’t afford it.
