Michigan Physician Assistant Valerie Kloosterman was exercising her First Amendment right to practice and express her faith when she requested a religious accommodation to her employer’s requirement that she use “gender-identity-based pronouns” and participate in or refer patients for “gender-dysphoria-related surgeries and drugs.”

In an 11-page, single-spaced Sept. 27, 2022, letter to officials with the University of Michigan Health and University of Michigan Health – West, attorneys with First Liberty Institute told the health system that it should reinstate Kloosterman to her position and “assure her that, going forward, it will fulfill its legal obligations to respect its employees’ religious consciences.”

Firing Kloosterman violated the First Amendment, Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, and various Michigan statutes, according to Michael Berry, senior counsel for the Plano, Texas-based public interest law firm that specializes in defending religious freedoms.

The letter noted that “before firing Ms. Kloosterman, Michigan Health blatantly denigrated her religious beliefs, attempted to compel her to speak against her conscience and make referrals for medical services that violate her conscience, discriminated against her for her religious beliefs, and refused to reasonably accommodate her religious beliefs.”

Those actions were carried out against a 17-year employee who had consistently received superlative performance reviews, including one in which her supervisor observed that “Valerie goes way beyond the call of duty when dealing with patients, follow up and professional responsibility. She is very ethical [and] responsible and treats all with respect.”

Jordan Pratt, also a senior counsel with First Liberty, observed in a statement regarding the Kloosterman firing that health care professionals should never have to choose between practicing their faith and keeping their jobs.

It’s bad medicine to force religious health care professionals to choose between their faith and their job. Valerie provides excellent medical care for every patient, but she cannot in good conscience refer patients for experimental drugs and procedures that violate both her religious convictions and her medical judgment. Nor can she use biology-obscuring pronouns that violate her religious beliefs and could cause patients to miss potentially life-saving screenings. It is intolerant of Michigan Health to demand that medical professionals like Valerie abandon their religious beliefs and their medical ethics in order to remain employed.

At the center of this controversy is Kloosterman’s strong, principled religious faith, which is precisely what the Founders intended to be protected by the First Amendment. It would be no different if Kloosterman was an atheist and had been fired for refusing to participate in compulsory prayers or Bible studies as a condition of employment.

Berry made clear in the letter the vital role Kloosterman’s faith plays in her life and her life’s work:

Ms. Kloosterman is a Christian and longtime member of a United Reformed Church. She believes that God created humankind male and female, that one’s sex is ordained by God, that one should love and care for the body that God gave him or her, and that one should not attempt to erase or alter his or her sex, especially through drugs or surgical means.

She believes that she must not speak against these truths by using pronouns that contradict a person’s biological sex. As a Christian, she also believes that God has ordained the sexual function for procreation, that children are a gift from God, and that—absent compelling reasons—one should not sterilize oneself. Moreover, as a Christian medical professional, she believes that it would be sinful to assist a patient in procuring sterilizing drugs or surgical procedures designed to erase or alter his or her sex.

In her medical judgment, according to the letter, she views “hormone therapy” and “gender reassignment surgery” as experimental procedures that thus far lack credible validation in peer-reviewed, long-term studies. She also believes such procedures result in damaging side effects, including bone density loss, infection, nerve damage, chronic pain, loss of sexual and urinary functions, psychological trauma, and other serious complications.

Kloosterman asks only to be reinstated and assured of her ability to continue providing medical care to all who need it and come to her. If the University of Michigan Health refuses to do so, this case will almost certainly end up in federal court, where it is difficult to see any outcome short of the justice she seeks.

Let it also be noted here that woke trans madness includes a dangerous intolerance that cannot abide individual freedom of choice and reflection was made clear during Kloosterman’s lengthy attempt to obtain a religious accommodation by Thomas Pierce, program director for the Department of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI), who insisted that she use the mandatory language and prescriptions.

When she respectfully indicated that she could not do so because of her religious beliefs and because of her independent medical judgment, but that she would use patients’ names in place of pronouns to respect their wishes, Thomas Pierce grew hostile, visibly angry with tight fists and a flushed demeanor, and attacked her religious beliefs.

Among other things, he told Ms. Kloosterman that she could not take the Bible or her religious beliefs to work with her, either literally or figuratively; that given her religious beliefs against gender identity based pronouns and “gender reassignment surgery,” she was to blame for transgender suicides; and that she was “evil” and abusing her power as a health care provider.

Clearly, diversity, equity, and inclusion do not include men and women of faith for ideological obsessives who have no qualms whatever about using every power at their disposal to force the rest of us to think and act as they do.

They are, in short, the enemies of freedom and human creativity.

Ted Cruz strangely throws support behind left-wing legislation that will allow media, big tech to form censorship cartels

(Natural News) For some strange reason, ‘conservative’ Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas is acting a lot like a left-wing Democrat these days when it comes to supporting a piece of legislation the vast majority of Republican senators want no part of.

Last week as it appeared that the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA) was dead, Cruz stepped in and helped rescue it, even commending its authors.

“Let me commend the authors of this bill for the hard work they put in on an important issue,” said Cruz, who then claimed that the bill is a blow against the corporate power of Big Tech when really, it only deepens the already corrupt relationship between the ‘mainstream’ media and the tech giants.

Breitbart News reported:

The core of the bill, as is now widely known, is to allow media companies to form a legal cartel in the U.S., for the sole purpose of pressuring tech companies for special favors.

At the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the bill today, Cruz said he worked closely with the lead Democrat sponsor of the bill, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (R-MN) to get his amendment through. Thanks to Cruz’s efforts, the media bailout bill was voted out of committee and may now face a floor vote.

“I’ve had extensive conversations with Senator Klobuchar, and sat down and heard her concerns, and we worked together on this amendment,” Cruz claimed.

But at a Senate hearing to discuss the legislation, a majority of Cruz’s Republican colleagues spoke out against it, including Sen. Mike Lee of Utah. While he voted in favor of the amendment Cruz offered, he voted against voting the legislation out of committee.

“I am a little bit confused by the sponsors’ support for the amendment,” said Lee. “I applaud anything that restricts censorship by Big Tech, [but] I don’t think it does what the sponsors think it does.

“The bill retains the fundamental flaw of attempting to improve competition by sanctioning the formation of cartels, something that our antitrust laws go out of their way to prohibit,” he added, according to Breitbart News. “Moreover, this bill ends up favoring large conglomerate publishers over smaller, local publishers.”

Sens. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) also voted against the legislation.

Other Republicans who opposed to the bill include House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), who called it the “antithesis of conservatism.”

“Attempts by big media and Democrats in Congress to collude and monopolize economic models poses a tremendous threat to free speech and a free press,” McCarthy told Breitbart News. “Never before has the opportunity been as open for startup news outlets as it is today. Americans now have more choices to get information and make decisions for their communities and elected leaders.

“That makes Democracy stronger and creates a whole new class of entrepreneurs that will also drive job growth. As we have seen in other industries, disrupters make legacy players uneasy and those legacy players are often willing to do whatever it takes to hold onto their market share and power. This is the antithesis of conservatism and House conservatives will fight for an open and free market — especially one that advances free speech and a free press,” he noted further.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) added in a statement: “The Journalism Competition and Protection Act (JCPA) lets the media form a cartel to negotiate w/ big tech. Conservatives should oppose special treatment for favored industries, and a cartel will lead to more censorship. Republicans should vote NO on the JCPA.”

46 Somalis Charged in $250 Million COVID Fraud

BY DANIEL GREENFIELD

There are some frauds so massively insane that Americans won’t do them. Someone has to.

covered this story back in the winter, relying on the important work of local reporters like Bill Glahn at the American Experiment. The story is mind-blowing for the sheer scale of the fraud.

In 2019, Feeding Our Future distributed $3.4 million in taxpayer food aid funds to the non-profits it was sponsoring, In 2020, that shot up to $42 million and then up to $197 million in 2021.

These were impressive numbers for a charity that seemed to focus on Somalis in Minnesota.

Glahn in American Experiment found that, “Feeding Our Future had 312 authorized sites for the program, approved for a maximum of 126,000 children.” That’s a lot of hungry Somali kids.

And I really mean impressive.

Safari Restaurant, which boasts “traditional Somali cuisine” like french fries and safari chicken quesadilla, where Rep. Ilhan Omar had celebrated her victory party, applied to participate in the Federal Child Nutrition program.

When the money was denied, Feeding Our Future complained that “minority-owned businesses serving almost exclusively economically disadvantaged children of color” were being denied the right to serve “culturally relevant foods” to “youth” during a “national emergency”.

Crying racism worked and at its peak, Safari claimed to be feeding 6,000 children a day. That’s a lot of children. Documents note that the Somali eatery claimed to be serving a comparable number of meals to “the entire St. Paul public school district.”

Safari was just one of the many providers who claimed to be feeding thousands of children.

There’s an Ilhan Omar angle and a Mecca angle.

The Feds staked out various Feeding Our Future meal sites and found no one at the places that were supposed to be feeding 50,000 children. According to the FBI, the money being stolen wasn’t used to feed children, it went into various shell companies and fronts operated by Somalis and was used to buy everything from a Porsche to African properties.

According to the Twin Cities Pioneer Press, S&S Catering led by Qamar Ahmed Hassan received $13.8 million in federal funds. The FBI warrants note that, “Qamar Ahmed Hassan wrote approximately $27,000 in checks from S&S Catering bank accounts… to Amax Travel, a travel agency that specializes in Haji travel packages.”

Now the official federal indictments of 47 people are in: 46 of them Somalis.

The Department of Justice announced today federal criminal charges against 47 defendants for their alleged roles in a $250 million fraud scheme that exploited a federally-funded child nutrition program during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A key element in the fraud was crying racism. Some politicians came forward to back them up. And there are questions as to what extent politicians, especially those catering to Somalis, helped enable it.

The accused Somalis donated to a variety of politicians, including Rep. Ilhan Omar, State Senator Omar Fateh, Shukri Olow, running for state representative, State Rep. Hodan Hassan, a Keith Ellison crony, and others.

Rep. Ilhan Omar has made government meals for children one of her signature issues.

"VUMC's Trans Peer/Buddy Program started in 2014, to provide peer services for transgender and gender non-conforming patients. The Program for LGBTI Health at VUMC, in collaboration with the Volunteer Services, developed this program. Participants include students, clinicians, staff, and community members who care about health disparities among people who identify as LGBT or are affected by differences in sex development. The goal is to "increase access to care and improve health care outcomes for transgender people by providing support to transgender patients at VUMC." The goal is to empower the patient to make informed health care decisions, and to reduce the postponement of health care by transgendered people."

Lawsuits claim hospitals specifically targeted unvaccinated patients with forced remdesivir and respirator “treatment” – a DEATH sentence

Image: Lawsuits claim hospitals specifically targeted unvaccinated patients with forced remdesivir and respirator “treatment” – a DEATH sentence

BY ETHAN HUFF

(Natural News) The decision to administer remdesivir to covid patients and smother them with a ventilator – a plandemic “treatment” protocol that we now know has killed many – was done not according to any kind of science, new lawsuits allege.

Hospitals selectively targeted the unvaccinated for this deadly protocol, the suits state. Unvaccinated patients were forced to take remdesivir and breathe with a ventilator almost as a type of punishment for their non-compliance with government protocols.

Many vaccinated patients were given the regimen as well, just to be clear – after all, the federal government paid hospitals gobs of cash for each patient who got it. But it appears as though the unvaccinated were given it more often than the vaccinated. (Related: Taking remdesivir was shown to increase a patient’s risk of hospitalization and death.)

“If there’s any group that was targeted, it’s the unvaxxed,” says attorney Dan Watkins, who was joined by Michael Hamilton in a recent appearance on “The Alex Jones Show.”

“As soon as they know you’re unvaxxed, you are immediately moved into this protocol and your care is put down on the backburner and no one pays attention to you until you’re done.”

Jones, of Infowars, responded to Watkins with the word wow, shocked at this flagrant display of what he described as “bioethical eugenics targeting” of the unvaccinated.

Did a hospital murder someone you know with remdesivir, a ventilator, and starvation? Take legal action!

On September 7, Watkins and Hamilton made an official announcement about the lawsuits at a national press conference.

The first one to be filed is a “first-in-the-nation landmark” case against three hospitals that were caught murdering unvaccinated patients for “bounties” provided to them by the federal government.

These hospitals were paid using American taxpayer dollars to murder patients using a toxic combination of food and fluid restriction – they were starved – remdesivir, mechanical ventilation, and a high-dose morphine-midazolam respiration-suppressing cocktail.

All three hospitals are located in Fresno, Calif. The suits accuse each of them of wrongful death, medical battery, elder abuse, and various other violations of patients’ rights.

“Truth for Health Foundation has pledged financial support for this lawsuit as one of our human rights defense efforts to serve the public good by helping protect public safety, defend patient rights, and defend life,” announced the Truth for Health Foundation, a 501(c)3 public charity incorporated in Arizona.

“Both Attorney Watkins and Attorney Hamilton have been engaged by Truth for Health Foundation to assist on several legal initiatives to help defend human and civil rights secured by law.”

In the comment section at The Liberty Daily‘s Substack, someone pointed out that hospitals across America and around the world also refused to provide early treatment for patients, i.e., they refused to allow patients to take simple, safe, and proven remedies like ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine (HCQ).

“The hospitals sent them home and told them to wait,” this person wrote. “When they got sicker, they were almost too sick to treat. If someone has early pneumonia you treat it early, because if you get worse you can die. It’s common sense.”

Someone else responded to this comment by asking when common sense was ever even part of the plandemic.

“It’s been a money-grabbing scam from the beginning, and profit drove all the decisions, most of which were wrong decisions in terms of ethics and health care,” this person added. “There’s a special place in hell for the cretins like Herr Fauci who engineered this criminal scheme against humanity (us).”

Dear Patriots –

The AFLDS Legal Team will be providing you with an ongoing round-up of our projects, as well as recent rulings and news in the world of freedom law. The tables have started to turn recently. Here’s a report on recent projects and legal events:

Can’t Miss Resources for Back to School

AFLDS has been at the forefront of fighting for your medical freedom and bodily autonomy since day one. We have updated our resources to support you as you go back into the school year and face ever-changing exemption needs and mandates. Please check out our newest, in-depth policy brief Back to School in 2022 which has fantastic resources and outlines to prepare you and your loved ones as you return to school. We have also been at work updating our downloadable website resources on masks, vaccines, and religious exemptions. Links are in the brief!

California Medical Board

There appears to be no limit to the unethical behavior of The California Medical Board. As you know, its members have attacked our own Dr. Gold simply for speaking out about early treatment options for Covid-19. Free speech must be protected, which is AFLDS is supporting Attorney Richard Jaffe who is suing the California Medical Board on behalf of physicians who are being hunted for free speech. We encourage you to read the latest update on his case. Many medical boards have gone after doctors for Covid “disinformation,” but the California Medical Board has been one of the largest offenders. After some digging, Attorney Jaffe has uncovered how they are able to threaten so many doctors. Check out his full press release here.

Additionally, California’s Assembly Bill 2098 aimed at further targeting doctors' free speech passed the Senate on August 29th, 2022, and is awaiting being signed into law. This bill is dangerous to our freedoms and ability to receive quality, unbiased healthcare. Please read our original press release on this bill here to understand exactly how evil this is.

AFLDS Files Amicus Curiae Brief in Support of Feds for Medical Freedom in Vaccine Mandate Case

America’s Frontline Doctors is proud to support plaintiff’s Fed for Medical Freedom, a group of over 6,000 federal employees challenging the legality of the federal vaccine mandate. See our full press release here. The hearing on this case was held on Tuesday, September 13th at 9am CT. This case is incredibly important to our rights as American Citizens. We will advise you of the ruling as soon as it is available.

Patriotically yours,

The AFLDS Legal Team

NIMBY in Martha’s Vineyard: Illegals for Thee, But Not for Me

SEPT. 17, 2022: Airplane of illegal immigrants sent to Martha’s Vineyard

Special reminder to the Democratic elites that are upset about the illegal immigrants in Martha’s Vineyard that 4.2 MILLION immigrants have illegally crossed the border since Joe Biden took office.

It’s easy being idealistic when you don’t have to live with your ideals. Nothing has proven this truth better, perhaps, than Martha’s Vineyard residents and the wider Left’s reaction to an “unacceptable” number of illegal aliens’ entry into that tony community.

That number would be 50 — a piddling percentage of the influx Mexico-abutting states must deal with due to the Biden administration’s refusal to secure the border.

That would be, mind you, a refusal supported via voting by most everyone in Martha’s Vineyard.

As most know, this blessed diversity was provided to the Vineyard by Florida governor Ron DeSantis, who was kind enough to fly the migrants to the island on his state’s own dime. Yet far from appreciating this opportunity to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with actual Hispanics (the island is 87 percent white), Vineyard residents seem none too pleased as the left-wing media cry foul. The Daily Mail summarizes the story:

  • Lisa Belcastro, homelessness director for Martha’s Vineyard, claims that the island has a ‘housing crisis’ and cannot look after the 50 illegal immigrants permanently
  • The median house in Martha’s Vineyard is worth almost $800,000, and the median household is $77,370 [average household income is $132,657] — well above the national average of $67,521…
  • State Senator Julian Cyr, a Massachusetts Democrat admitted that they had implemented emergency hurricane plans in response to the new arrivals
  • Nearly 1,000 migrants have been released to sleep on the streets [in the] Texas border town of El Paso amid a surge of illegal crossings that is overwhelming Border Patrol facilities
  • Florida’s Lt. Gov Jeanette Nunez has now declared that DeSantis’ administration is planning to send any illegal migrants from Florida to Delaware

A housing crisis in Martha’s Vineyard? They “cannot” handle the influx? Well, “Can’t lives on Won’t Street,” the saying goes. Take a gander at the Obamas’ $11.75 million Martha’s Vineyard estate (video below) — and the surrounding lands — and decide for yourself whether the island can accommodate 50 illegals as easily as border towns can absorb waves of thousands.

Now consider that the community is home to many such estates. Oh, Martha’s Vineyard no doubt has zoning laws precluding unsightly development. Joe Biden has a solution to that:

His administration aims to override local zoning laws so that high-density housing can be created — the plan is called Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing. He has in the crosshairs suburbs such as Westchester County, N.Y., but, hey, beautiful, leafy Martha’s Vineyard has also got plenty of room to be affirmatively fair.

Besides, shouldn’t a redistribution of diversifiers allow the island to share in the diversity witnessed in the video below, shot in Texas?

Once again, however, not everyone appreciates DeSantis’ charitable efforts. Governor Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.), for example, took a break from running his state into the ground to ask the Department of Justice to investigate “whether sending migrants to other parts of the country constituted kidnapping or other federal crimes,” as Fox News put it yesterday. Hillary Clinton appears to think it does, saying on Morning Joe earlier today that DeSantis’ actions are “literally human trafficking.”

Well, any such honest investigation would be interesting because “sending migrants to other parts of the country” is precisely what Biden, Obama before him, and certain Democratic jurisdictions have been doing for ages!

The situation’s humorous aspect was not lost on observers. Satirical site The Babylon Bee ran the headlines, “Martha’s Vineyard Resident Calls Police To Report A Hispanic In The Neighborhood Not Operating A Leaf Blower,” and “Obamas Construct New Cages At Martha’s Vineyard To Hold Arriving Migrants.”

Not to be outdone, Fox News host Tucker Carlson announced last night that “for hundreds of years Martha’s Vineyard had suffered under the soul-crushing effects of its own whiteness,” but now they’ve gotten the “one cure — badly needed diversity” (video below).

Others, such as columnist David Marcus, noted (tweet below) what the irredeemably cynical might call hypocrisy.

Then there were those who tried to be the conscience of America, such as MSNBC contributor Charlie Sykes (yikes!), who tweeted:

And what are the illegals Biden has been flying into New York’s Westchester County Airport? Undocumented Democrats?

In fairness, though, some of these consciences are in Martha’s Vineyard itself, a reality which, the following tweet evidence, is causing some intra-island friction.

But perhaps the following perspective will help soothe the savage Vineyard breasts:

And as is said, be careful what you wish for. As commentator Howie Carr writes at The Boston Globe:

Martha’s Vineyard — so many trust-funders, legacies and members of assorted Protected Classes, all abruptly forced to confront the spectacle of what Deplorables must endure day after dystopian day.

How’s that Great Reset working out for you now, David Letterman? Chris Wallace? Spike Lee? Larry David? Amy Schumer? Meg Ryan? Caroline Kennedy?

Why are the Beautiful People so upset? Diversity is strength, is it not?

Massachusetts is a sanctuary state, so obviously the Vineyard is a sanctuary island. Isn’t this what the limousine liberals have always wanted … for us, but not for them?

(Hat tip: commentator Monica Showalter.)

Yes, it’s easy being idealistic when you don’t have to live with your ideals when you can outsource your charity. But whatever the resolution to Martha’s Vineyard’s current problem, one thing is almost certain: Most residents will continue voting for immigrationist left-wingers. Because, dontcha’ know?

It’s the little people who are supposed to shoulder the big problems caused by the small minds.

Mike Lindell Suing FBI, Government for Violating His Rights

Mike Lindell wants more than just his phone back. Following the incident in Minnesota during which agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation blocked his vehicle at a Hardee’s drive-through and seized his phone, Lindell made an appearance on Steve Bannon’s War Room. He announced that he was filing a lawsuit against the FBI and the government. You can watch Lindell’s conversation with Bannon posted by The Post Millennial below.

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell to Steve Bannon: "We are suing the United States government and the FBI"

Lindell makes the point that his phone is what he uses to run his company and that it even controls his hearing aids. As someone who wears hearing aids, I had the option of connecting mine to my phone and even activating the Bluetooth feature. But while I don’t need to pair my ears with my phone, Lindell chose to do so. And for better or worse (probably worse), our lives are now almost inextricably linked to our phones. While that says more about the continuing decline of Western Civilization than anything else, let’s face it: we’d all be lost without our phones, no matter how erudite we think we may be.

Lindell noted that he had already turned over his phone records during the Dominion lawsuit. And to be honest, the FBI could have easily accessed all of his phone and internet records, particularly under Merrick Garland.

I’ve never watched Lindell.TV, and I’ve never been a huge Lindell fan, although we did buy a pair of My Pillows. They’re okay. A little too fluffy for me. We bought one of his dog beds, and the dog chewed it up. But that’s beside the point. Lindell, even if leftists and a few people on the right disparage him, makes a valid observation about the infringement of his rights. This was more than gathering evidence under a warrant. This was meant to intimidate him. And by extension, everyone else. Including you and including me.

Pay attention when people Democrats like Tim Ryan say it is time to “kill and confront” the MAGA movement. I’m not even a MAGA person, and that made me raise my eyebrows. Pay attention when Joe Biden tees off on MAGA Republicans. Pay attention to stories like those of Lisa Gallagher, a New Jersey wife, mother, and Trump supporter who had FBI agents knocking at her door because of an anonymous and false tip that she had been involved in the January 6 incident. Pay attention when Senator Mazie Hirono says, “That is how more and more women and those who support our right to make decisions about our own bodies, that is how we see it. And why? Because that’s what’s happening. Madam President, I yield the floor. But clearly, this is a — literally, call to arms in our country. I yield the floor.”

Does she know what the word “literally” means? If it is literally a call to arms, that means picking up weapons. Had she meant otherwise, she would have said “figurative.”  Someone may argue that Ryan and Hirono were just being passionate. But people in moments of passion, as well as when they are in their cups, often betray their real thoughts.

Pay attention.

Florida flies ‘illegal immigrants’ to Martha’s Vineyard~COMPLAINTS FROM THE LIBERAL DEMOCRATS!

Martha's Vineyard migrants transported to military base~

Vámonos! Martha's Vineyard Begins Deportation of Group of 50 Illegal Aliens

Migrants flown to Martha’s Vineyard say they were misled

Within roughly 36 hours of a small group of 50 illegal migrants arriving at the luxurious island known as Martha’s Vineyard, courtesy of the brilliant Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), deportations have already commenced. That didn’t take long, did it?

It looks like maybe the island demographics became just a little too diverse for its residents.

NBC correspondent Emilie Ikeda posted video footage to Twitter Friday morning that showed a number of the Martha’s Vineyard 50 boarding buses. The buses are headed, first via ferry, to Joint Base Cape Cod, where they will be processed with the help of — get this — the Massachusetts National Guard, activated to help deal with what island officials dubbed Thursday a “humanitarian crisis.”

News of the migrants being bused off the swanky island sparked immediate ridicule, as one would expect.

“So the ‘sanctuary jurisdiction’ of Martha’s Vineyard, which claims to be a welcoming community for illegal immigrants, is busing them off the island after just 1 DAY?” tweeted the DeSantis War Room account.

According to Boston Globe’s Samantha J. Gross, multiple buses arrived to carry the 50 illegal aliens away to their new temporary homes. “Buses have arrived in Edgartown to transport migrants from St. Andrew’s Parish House. There is one big bus and two shorter buses to transport folks off the island. People with bags are taking selfies and hugging volunteers goodbye,” she tweeted.

CNN had the story, making certain in its title that the migrants are “voluntarily” being transported to Joint Base Cape Cod for processing and shelter.

The outlet noted:

The migrants will be sent voluntarily to Joint Base Cape Cod, said Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, who added he’s activating up to 125 National Guard members to assist the relief effort.
Baker lauded a temporary shelter that the Martha’s Vineyard community set up for the migrants in “a moment of urgent need.”

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker (D) expressed gratitude to everyone who pitched in to take care of the 50 illegal aliens that caused Martha’s Vineyard to go to DEFCON 1, averting a prolonged humanitarian crisis on an island comprised of six small vineyard towns that have a combined worth of $20 billion in property value and the finances to muster any resources they could have possibly needed to house and feed a mere 50 people.

“We are grateful to the providers, volunteers and local officials that stepped up on Martha’s Vineyard over the past few days to provide immediate services to these individuals,” Baker told CNN.

This is a developing story. Further updates to come.

 

California passes new law to protect abusive parents who mutilate their children in the name of transgenderism

(Natural News) The California legislature just passed new legislation to turn the Golden State into a massive sanctuary zone for the transgender body-butchering of children.

Senate Bill 107 was overwhelmingly passed in a 30-9 vote along party lines in the wake of a federal ruling on August 26 that struck down a Biden regime mandate aimed at forcing American doctors to perform gender mutilation procedures on children who demand to become LGBTs.

With that mandate now gone, some states are passing their own protective legislation to outlaw LGBT indoctrination events such as “Drag Queen Story Hour” at public libraries and “family-friendly” drag strip shows at restaurants and bars.

California, meanwhile, is moving in the opposite direction (Related: Alabama is one of the states that recently banned transgender grooming, and California is now trying to cater to “refugees” from that state and others like it).

SB 107, we are told, will make California a giant “safe space” for transgender youth and their parents from other states to find refuge. The following Democrats voted yes on the bill, which now awaits Gov. Gavin Newsom’s signature:

Allen
Archuleta
Atkins
Becker
Bradford
Caballero
Cortese
Dodd
Durazo

Eggman
Glazer
Gonzalez
Hueso
Hurtado
Kamlager
Laird
Leyva
Limón
McGuire
Min
Newman
Pan
Portantino
Roth
Rubio
Skinner
Stern
Umberg
Wieckowski
Wiener

California Democrats ignore children whose lives have been ruined by trans agenda

State Sen. Melissa Melendez, a Republican who voted against SB 107, questioned the motives of Sen. Scott Wiener, the Democrat who authored the bill. She wants to know if he is aware of its implications for the children whose lives will be forever destroyed by “gender-affirming care.”

Melendez brought up the case of Chloe Cole, who at 15 years old removed both of her breasts in a failed attempt to become a “male.” Cole, like many others, now regrets her decision to get a double mastectomy.

The day before SB 107 was passed, Cole testified for a second time before the Senate Judiciary Committee about how going trans has ruined her life.

“My parents were told that the options were transition or suicide,” Cole said at the hearing. “They complied because they were not offered any other treatment solution for my distress. My distraught parents wanted me alive, so they listened to my doctors. I was placed on puberty blockers and testosterone after expressing my gender dysphoria to my therapist, and I was approved for a double mastectomy all by the age of 15.”

“Who here really believes that as a 15-year-old I should have had my healthy breasts removed or that should have been an option? SB 107 will open the floodgates for confused children like me to get the gender interventions that many so regret. I am the canary in the coal mine.”

As you might expect, Cole also now suffers from a litany of mental health issues mostly stemming from her body being permanently butchered. She is still a female and always will be, but her chopped-up body is now a mishmash of male and female characteristics that she will carry with her for the rest of her life.

“So I easily fell prey to the narrative that if I felt different and did not want to be a highly sexualized girl, I must be a boy,” Cole went on to explain. “I obsessed over becoming a boy. I believed that all my insecurities and anxiety would magically disappear once I transitioned.”

“The mental health professionals did not try to dissuade me of this delusional belief. I was fast-tracked into medical transition after I was diagnosed with dysphoria in California.”

Fauci and Friends Must Produce Records of Government-BigTech Censorship Collusion

Fauci and Friends Ordered to Produce Records on Government-Big Tech Collusion to Censor COVID 'Deniers'

BY KEVIN DOWNEY, JR.

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/kevindowneyjr/2022/09/07/fauci-and-friends-ordered-to-produce-records-on-government-big-tech-collusion-to-censor-covid-deniers-n1627429;

Despite a lawsuit filed in May, Anthony Fauci has been reluctant to cough up records he has concerning the U.S. government and Big Tech allegedly conniving to censor social media users who spoke out against the official COVID narrative. So a judge gave wee Fauci a little pat on the back to help him spit them out.

U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty, a Trump appointee, issued an order to a number of White House officials, including Fauci, Jen Psaki, Karine Jean-Pierre, and the “Big Guy” himself, Gropey Joe Biden. They have been ordered to produce any and all communications regarding Big Tech and government officials colluding to silence those who dared to deny “the science” on platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.

The attorneys general of Louisiana and Missouri are suing more than 50 officials and 12 departments of the U.S. government, including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Some of those mentioned in the suit have chosen not to play ball.

The feds argued that Fauci shouldn’t have to provide emails between himself and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Judge Doughty decided otherwise. What is Fauci hiding? Perhaps we are about to find out.

Related: House Republicans to Zuckerberg: Let’s Talk

Judge Doughty gave Fauci and Jean-Pierre 21 days to fork over any and all communications regarding the alleged censoring. Fauci was also ordered to answer questions regarding his role as the master-blaster at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).

“We know from the previous round of discovery that efforts to censor the speech of those who disagree with the government on covid policy have come from the top,” Jenin Younes, attorney for the New Civil Liberties Alliance and several of the plaintiffs, said in a statement. “Americans deserve to know Anthony Fauci’s participation in this enterprise, especially since he has publicly demanded that specific individuals, including two of our clients, Jay Bhattacharya and Martin Kulldorff, be censored on social media.”

BUSTED-O-RAMA! The CDC told Facebook that the “COVID-19 vaccines available in the United States are effective at protecting people, including children ages 6 months to 4 years, from getting seriously ill, being hospitalized, and even dying.” However, there is no actual evidence to suggest the Bat-Stew Flu “vaccine” actually protects young kids from “severe illness and death.” Then the CDC and other government employees and agencies worked to delete Facebook users who disagreed with the bogus information.

This is just the latest gut punch for Fauci. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has had his sights set on the Fauchmeister for a long time over allegedly lying about “gain of function” research at the Wuhan lab. The attention-starved hobgoblin has decided to resign from his job in January — just after the Republicans, many of whom are Trump-endorsed “MAGA” Republicans, are expected to trounce the Democrats in the mid-term elections. Paul let Fauci know that he can run but he can’t hide.

Will any of this make a difference? Ask Andrew Cuomo. Cuomo was a media darling during the “pandemic.” He snagged a $5.1 million book deal detailing his “leadership skills” (immediately after he slaughtered almost 15,000 elderly people) and won an Emmy for his frequent TV appearances. Today, he is unemployed, Emmyless, and hiding at a friend’s house on Long Island after resigning over multiple allegations of sexual harassment. If Cuomo can get (figuratively) snuffed, so can Fauci.

If you think watching Fauci get called out from every corner is funny (and it is), you’ll love my friends at “Jokes and a Point.” They make brief, funny videos that’ll make you laugh. Remember, conservatives are way funnier than libs.

 

Biden Fights 9/11 Victims in Court to Protect Taliban Cash~Resettling Afghans in America is a Dirty, Corrupt Business

UPDATE: Biden Robs and Betrays 9/11 Victims:

The unspeakable betrayal over Afghanistan continues.

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

White House Democrats have a history of fighting against terror victims suing Islamic terrorists. The Obama administration battled American terror victims suing the PLO. In 2015, after they won a $218 million judgement against the terror group, Blinken, then only a deputy secretary of state, intervened claiming that the lawsuit threatened “several decades of US foreign policy.”

But now Biden is fighting 9/11 victims on behalf of the Taliban. At stake are billions being held by the Afghan central bank fund in the United States.

A decade ago, 9/11 families sued the Taliban, Al Qaeda, and Iran. The court found that the Islamic terrorists were responsible and a judgement of $6 billion was handed down.

The verdict was described as “symbolic” at the time. CBS News commented that “it would be near impossible to collect any damages, especially from the Taliban or al Qaeda.” But that was before Biden turned over Afghanistan to the Taliban. Since Afghanistan has assets in this country, including $7 billion in bank funds, it’s now entirely possible to collect that money.

Or it would be if the guy who let the Taliban take over wasn’t also in the White House.

Biden officially announced that he was splitting the $7 billion between the families of the victims and a “trust fund” to provide “humanitarian aid” for the people of Afghanistan.

But that was just another one of his many lies and double-crosses involving Afghanistan.

The $3.5 billion was placed in a separate trust that would be “separate and distinct” from the around $800 million the Biden administration has already spent on aid to Afghanistan. Officials admitted that the money could actually be used for matters other than “humanitarian aid”.

The media headlined it, “Biden frees frozen Afghan billions for relief, 9/11 victims”. But a Biden official admitted that it was done to stop 9/11 families from getting access to the money.

“Absent action by us, these funds were likely to be tied up in courts for years, while the action we have taken stands the best chance of more quickly freeing up a large portion for humanitarian support,” the official argued. As a Lawfare blog post noted, “the administration’s plan would insulate nearly half of the Afghan assets at issue from these attachment efforts.”

What Biden actually did was take the money off the table for 9/11 victims. And it got worse.

Secretary of State Blinken claimed that the administration “will continue to support these victims and their families, recognizing the enduring pain they have suffered at the hands of terrorists, including those who operated from Afghanistan prior to the September 11 attacks. These victims and their families should have a full opportunity to set forth their arguments in court.”

Blinken, like his boss, lied.

While the 9/11 families would have their claims “heard in court”, neither Biden nor Blinken mentioned that the administration would be advocating against them.

On the same day as Biden’s executive order reserving $3.5 billion for the terrorists, his Justice Department filed a statement of interest in court arguing that the judgement for the victims of terrorism was too large and that actually turning over the money to them would interfere with the Biden administration’s foreign policy in Afghanistan.

Now a magistrate judge has repeated back most of the DOJ’s arguments, ruling against the 9/11 families who were laying claim to the other half of the money. Judge Sarah Netburn’s arguments closely mirror the contradictory positions of Biden and the DOJ. And they reveal the underlying corruption behind the ambiguous status of Afghanistan’s central bank.

Netburn, like the Biden administration, contends that the Afghanistan bank enjoys “sovereign immunity” because the country itself was not sanctioned as a terrorist state, only the Taliban were. And that the Taliban once again control Afghanistan is irrelevant, according to the judge, because Biden hasn’t recognized the reality that this is actually the case.

Banks don’t enjoy “sovereign immunity” and neither do the Taliban. Netburn and Biden act as if there were some entity representing Afghanistan that is not the Taliban. That position might make sense if they were backing a resistance movement to the Taliban. But they’re not.

Instead, the Biden administration has maintained a deliberately ambiguous position for Afghanistan’s central bank as being both under and not under Taliban control. This is convenient because it allows the Biden administration to use the financial institution as a vehicle and to restrict its access at the same time. The bank’s leadership, a mixture of terrorists and wonks linked to the former government, maintains that same calculated ambiguity.

The deputy governor of the bank is Noor Ahmad Agha, a Taliban leader listed as a specially designated global terrorist. Shah Mohammad Mehrabi, a member of the board of governors of the bank, lives near Washington D.C. and teaches at Montgomery College, has made his own media tour demanding that the United States release funds to the bank.

Biden is unable to do that until he thoroughly defeats the 9/11 families in court.

If Biden releases the money to the Afghanistan bank before that happens, the 9/11 families will be able to argue that the administration is contradicting its own position. Biden wants to reserve all $7 billion for the terrorists and so he has to hold off long enough to defeat the terror victims.

The level of betrayal here is worse than even the Obama administration.

The Biden administration claims that the money will be used for “humanitarian aid” and will not go to the terrorists. That’s another lie and it’s been disproved by its publicly stated policies.

The Biden administration has issued global licenses authorizing financial transactions with the Taliban and the Al Qaeda-allied Haqqani Network that include, in the Treasury Department’s own words, “delivery and provision of humanitarian aid or shipments”, “administrative issues”, “donor coordination meetings”, “sharing descriptions of projects”, “coordination with regard to travel”, “participation in technical working groups” and “sharing of office space”. Not to mention the “payments of taxes, fees, or import duties to, or the purchase or receipt of permits, licenses, or public utility services from, the Taliban, the Haqqani Network.”

While Biden and his corrupt cronies insist that they don’t recognize the Taliban, that’s purely a formality. Not only do they recognize the Taliban as the government, but they’ve been extensively coordinating with the Islamic terrorists and helping to fund them.

At the end of July, Biden’s representative met with “senior Taliban representatives” to discuss  “ongoing efforts to enable the $3.5 billion in licensed Afghan central bank reserves to be used for the benefit of the Afghan people”.

Even while the Biden administration and its allies insist that the other $3.5 billion set aside to meet the claims of terror victims can’t be released to them because that would “implicitly” mean that the Taliban are being recognized as the government, Biden’s diplomatic representatives can meet with them and conduct negotiations about giving them the other $3.5 billion.

Releasing money to 9/11 terror victims would “implicitly” recognize the Taliban, but engaging in sustained diplomatic negotiations with them as the governing authority somehow does not.

The Taliban privately understand that Biden can’t release the $3.5 billion to them until he beats the 9/11 families in court. And then they’ll potentially get access to the whole $7 billion. This corrupt charade is being played out for the benefit of the equally complicit judiciary and media which is cheering the downfall of the 9/11 families and waiting for the cash to go to the Taliban.

Reuters headlined its story, “Afghans outraged as 9/11 families lay claim to frozen billions”. There’s no real ambiguity as to which side Reuters, the media, and Joe Biden are on.

In October 2001, Biden proposed that “this would be a good time to send, no strings attached, a check for $200 million to Iran,” He’s managed to send much more money than that to the Islamic terror state since, but now he’s preparing to send a $7 billion check to the Taliban.

All he had to do to get that money was lie and cheat 9/11 families.

Lutheran Social Services is one of the biggest players in the refugee resettlement space. And refugee resettlement is one of the biggest players in the migration and terrorism space. Opponents of national demographic transformation have been regular critics of Lutheran Social Services. But now the Afghans that LSS is supposed to be resettling are also coming forward with some interesting allegations about how the actual organization distributes its resources and services.

 More than two dozen interviews with Afghan clients of the agency, current and former employees and volunteers who work closely with the organization uncovered stories about multiple failures to perform services.

Some employees, sources say, have provided inadequate food, housing and other services to refugees and played favorites among clients. They also say some staff have failed to securely store sensitive documents, falsified case notes, skimmed funds from petty cash and paid questionable bonuses to employees.

What US News can’t quite come out and say in its voluminous article is that LSS hired Afghans to do the grunt work of social services and they’re doing what most in a tribal society do, skimming money and helping out their family members.

“You just scratch your head going, ‘Is anybody watching this office? Is anybody auditing them?’” says Ted Vinatieri, a pastor at Pillar Church in Stafford, Virginia, and one of several volunteers who expressed apprehension about the treatment of Afghan refugees by Lutheran Social Services.

Concerns about the agency have already made their way to the federal government, where the Department of State monitors refugee resettlement during the first few months after their arrival. Individuals close to Lutheran Social Services have reached out to the State Department, which is now investigating claims about client mistreatment.

One of those individuals reached out to the FBI with concerns, and the law enforcement agency has contacted at least one former and one current employee to discuss their experiences. The FBI would not confirm whether there is an official investigation.

There has to be some bad stuff going on to justify this level of involvement. The article doesn’t quite justify that. But what it lays out is a familiar story.

In late June, Amir, a Lutheran Social Services client and former member of the Afghan special forces, is sitting behind his coffee table in his sparsely furnished apartment in Hyattsville, Maryland. As his toddler darts in and out the room, he holds up his phone and shows his text message exchanges with his caseworker.

“Hello brother,” he starts out each text, before asking for help with things like rent, a bus card and English-language classes. The caseworker doesn’t always respond, but when he does, it’s with phrases like, “in a meeting” or “will call you back.” The problem, according to Amir, is that he never does.

“Hello, brother” would suggest he’s talking to a fellow Muslim and/or Afghan.

One current employee says they saw a caseworker give a family of seven $200 in cash, had them sign a receipt and later wrote on it that the family had been given $700.

Another current employee says they have gone through several audits, including annual financial audits and monitoring by Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, the parent organization. In the weeks before each audit, which they tell U.S. News are “very easy to pass,” they say some staff members forged client signatures on receipts and other documents to be compliant. Whether or not the services were actually provided to refugees, the employee says, was unclear.

“What they do is they quickly call the families and see what they are missing. They sometimes provide it right before the audit – a day before. … I, myself, dropped off furniture almost in the middle of the night – at 10 p.m. – because the auditor was coming at 8 a.m. to see and check the furniture.”

Whether or not a family receives something as basic as a couch can come down to their position on a hierarchy determined by Lutheran Social Services staff, sources say. Refugees and volunteers say some staff members, who are mostly well-educated Afghans, can be dismissive of Afghan refugees who struggle to read and write or who speak a different first language. Sources say refugees with strong U.S. ties, and those savvy enough to leverage them, are often the ones who get the most attention: prompt responses to their questions, rent paid beyond the required three months, new furniture, funds from the petty cash box.

Current staff members said there’s another factor that can give refugees an advantage: sharing the same last names as staff.

“Some clients who are relatives are getting better services,” one current employee says plainly. They reported seeing relatives get more rent, more cash, better furniture, more job assistance and more Uber trips for transportation.

A member of another organization helping Afghan refugees says they saw nepotism firsthand. Their organization was working with Lutheran Social Services to do home setups, using private donations to ensure families had furniture, basic house supplies, food and other necessities they needed when they first arrived. Lutheran Social Services would flag needy homes for them, but half of the time, they say, the group would show up to find that homes flagged as needy often had more than enough supplies.

“A handful of times, that person would turn out to be a relative of a case manager or employee,” they say. (Lutheran Social Services declined to comment on some of these claims, but said its legal investigators did not find evidence to sustain allegations that its case management team treats clients differently based on their ethnic backgrounds.)

While sources say well-connected Afghans see their complaints addressed quickly, others are said to be ignored, dismissed or even threatened if they share their concerns.

Two refugee families told U.S. News they’d been instructed by the same caseworker not to complain to the media about their treatment by Lutheran Social Services. A father with a young child was so worried during his interview with U.S. News that he closed his window blinds, nervously peeking outside to see if anyone was watching. One of the families said the caseworker also told them they would be deported by the State Department if they complained.

I don’t know what anyone else expected. This is Afghanistan. And most of the Muslim world where everything operates around clan/tribe/family. Corruption and theft are routine. We couldn’t run anything in Afghanistan because of this sort of thing. Why did anyone think that putting a lot of money into the hands of Afghans to resettle Afghans would work any differently?

Beyond Afghans being Afghans, Lutheran Social Services was enthusiastically throwing a lot of taxpayer money around.

It was, in fact, common for staff to receive thousands of dollars in bonuses, even in a single two-week pay period, Floyd says. She says she processed one paycheck in which a single employee earned a $9,000 bonus. Over three months, she says she processed more than $100,000 in the surge stipends. She recalls an employee who was so confused by her pay bump that she called HR just to make sure there hadn’t been an error.

Floyd also expressed concern about an issue several other current and former staff members mentioned to U.S. News: insufficient accounting of community donations, which, like refugees, were flowing in at levels not seen in decades.

“Everybody wanted to be a part of the cause, and not just with the money, but with the physical donations,” she says. “They had everything: cribs, laptops, iPads, gift cards of $5,000.”

The problem, she says, was that there were no records of how many donations were received, or who ended up receiving them. Theoretically, in other words, anyone could have taken the items home.

One employee of Lutheran Social Services says that they did indeed see theft, albeit on a small scale. A handful of employees, they say, sometimes took home donations meant for refugees, including gift cards, backpacks, toys, home items and hygiene supplies. They say some staff used the Uber account meant for refugee transportation for personal errands.

The same employee says a senior staff member in one office treated the petty cash box like his own “personal cash box,” taking money out to pay for his wife’s shoes. 

Don’t worry, they’re just modeling the behavior that they learned from the best.

Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service is led by Krish O’Mara Vignarajah, a Washington insider who previously served as policy director for Michelle Obama and as senior adviser to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Secretary of State John Kerry.

Hillary Clinton is the best role model that anyone could ask for.

Judge Grants Trump Request for Special Master to Review Docs Seized From Mar-a-Lago

According to a court order published on Monday, a federal judge will appoint a special master to review the documents and items seized by the FBI during the unprecedented raid on Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida in order to determine which are likely to be covered by attorney-client or executive privilege.

U.S. District Judge Aileen M. Cannon agreed with Trump’s lawyers and said that Trump still has some executive privileges after leaving office, contradicting the position taken by the Biden/Garland Justice Department.

“The Court hereby authorizes the appointment of a special master to review the seized property for personal items and documents and potentially privileged material subject to claims of attorney-client and/or executive privilege,” Cannon’s ruling states.

FBI officials were reportedly already reviewing the documents, but Cannon ordered them to stop their review and that they cannot be used in its investigation until an appointed special master assesses the documents. Cannon also ruled that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence could keep evaluating the possible risk to national security posed by the removal of classified documents, some of which were allegedly related to highly sensitive government and intelligence secrets.

 

Wave of lawsuits coming against psychiatrists and doctors who rubber-stamped transgender mutilations and surgeries

(Natural News) Medical professionals who rubber stamp cross-sex hormones and puberty blockers in children will be held accountable for child abuse and medical malpractice. Medical professionals who push transgender surgeries and genital mutilations on their patients will soon see a wave of lawsuits.

Take for instance 19-year-old Jay Langadinos. Back in May of 2010, this Australian woman sought professional help from a psychiatrist named Dr. Patrick Toohey. After a single meeting, the psychiatrist scheduled Jay for hormone treatment and two major surgeries to remove her breasts and uterus. Jay’s endocrinologist, Professor Ann Conway, was concerned that Jay was “very young” and therefore needed “a thorough psychiatric work-up before embarking on hormone treatment.”

But psychiatrist Dr. Patrick Toohey did not provide a thorough psychiatric evaluation and did not take the time to listen to his patient. After just one meeting, he prescribed synthetic hormones, forcing Jay to develop secondary male sex characteristics. The mutilation surgeries followed soon thereafter, starting with a double mastectomy. When Jay was just 22 years old, her psychiatrist signed off on a hysterectomy, writing that there was no “psychiatric contraindication to proceeding with hysterectomy as part of gender transition.”

A decade later, Jay does not identify as a male, an assumption that was forced on her at a young age. Today, she is suing the psychiatrist for professional negligence.

Youth who were maimed into transgenderism are beginning to de-transition back to their true selves

Back when she was nineteen years old, Jay says she told the doctor that she suffered from social phobia, but this issue was ignored. If psychiatrists took a little time and got down to the root of the problem, then hormone therapy and gender-contorting surgeries would not even be considered. The hormones and procedures that Jay underwent ultimately caused early menopause, impaired psychological functioning, deep anxiety, and depression. She ultimately wanted to have children but could not. Now, she holds the doctor accountable for not recommending she get a second opinion before the hysterectomy was conducted.

The feelings, urges and thoughts of youth are complex and fleeting, but none of it has to define them for life — unless it gets taken too far. Birth gender is sacred and should be preserved and affirmed first. Jay remembers being confused about her sexuality and gender after going online and learning about gender dysphoria.

“Because of the definition of dysphoria, I thought, ‘That’s what I have.’ I decided that I must be transgender because of the discomfort that I had in my body,” said Langadinos. But after coming to an incorrect conclusion about her identity, she was not guided in the right direction. When she sought psychiatric help, she was affirmed in her confusion and further persuaded to accept an identity that wasn’t truly hers. As the hormone treatment took effect, it made her even more unhappy, and she sought further changes to “fix” herself and find some sort of happiness inside.

“As my unhappiness grew, I felt the cause of my unhappiness was because I was not male, so the answer was to change my body even more,” said Langadinos. “I had a breakdown, and couldn’t function for an entire year. I couldn’t get out of bed. I wish at the time I know how much I was hurting and why.”

Medical professionals beginning to speak out about gender-bending child abuse, genital mutilation

Victims of gender transition are rising up and telling their stories. These first-hand experiences are motivating more medical professionals to stand up for children who are preyed on by trans-activism, gender delusions, synthetic hormones, and genital mutilation. Dr. Quentin Van Meter, president of the American College of Pediatricians, called puberty blockers “child abuse” in an interview with LifeSiteNews.

“If you are interrupting that with clearly the intent of never having it go the direction that nature intended, with biological males ending up as adult males and biological females ending up as adult females, if you interrupt that, you are basically setting up a disease state,” Van Meter stated. “And then on top of that, the purpose is clear in the vast majority of kids that get on puberty blockers, they will not be allowed to go through their own natural puberty. They will be held back and then given cross-sex hormones.”

Dr. Van Meter said that puberty blockers are a gateway to surgical mutilation of healthy body parts and they have many short- and long-term side effects. “So it’s a conveyor belt. And once that patient is placed on the conveyor belt of puberty blockers, they are carried down the assembly line to cross-sex hormones. And then at the end, have an option to do surgery to mutilate their bodies to appear like the opposite sex.”

Crimes against humanity: Mary Holland of Children’s Health Defense says everyone who violated Nuremberg Code during covid needs to be prosecuted

(Natural News) At a recent Action Alliance event in Nuremberg, Germany, Children’s Health Defense (CHD) President Mary Holland issued a call to action about not letting those behind the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) plandemic off the hook for their crimes against humanity.

Holland spoke about the importance of the Nuremberg Code, which was codified after World War II to prevent atrocities like the Holocaust from ever happening again.

Built on the medical and legal ethics established in Germany before the Nazi regime, the Nuremberg Code also laid the groundwork for how to deal with anyone who might try to impose another mass genocide, which is exactly what those behind the plandemic set out to do.

“For more than 75 years, the Nuremberg Code has been a beacon of light – all medical and legal norms have been based on it since 1947,” Holland said. “The Nuremberg Code is the foundation for modern medical ethics.”

“The code has been incorporated into U.S. federal and state law, and U.S. courts have recognized the Nuremberg Code as a universal, international legal standard – like the norms prohibiting slavery and piracy.”

Forcing people to mask in solitary confinement and submit to experimental “vaccines” violates the Nuremberg Code

Even if entire nations or continents decide to scrap the Nuremberg Code in practice – which is what most of them did by imposing wide-scale medical fascism – this does not nullify its tenets.

Every individual has the right to just say no to drugs, in this case, Fauci Flu shots, regardless of what the government says. Every individual also has the right to just say no to masks, which are an unproven and dangerous medical device.

“Tragically, in the last two-and-a-half years, we have witnessed a global assault on the Nuremberg Code,” Holland lamented. “Governments, medical establishments, universities, and the media have violated the very first principle and every other principle of the code’s 10 points.”

“They have coerced people into being human guinea pigs.”

Holland is committed to seeing every last person responsible for destroying people’s lives and livelihoods with plandemic tyranny brought to justice. It starts with calling them out, followed by actions such as lawsuits.

“We must stop this,” Holland said. “And we must ensure this does not happen again.”

Unfortunately for those who already took the jabs, no amount of justice will give them back their natural, healthy immune systems. Many of them will face a lifetime of illness or premature death as a result of their compliance.

“We live in dangerous times. If world governments and their collaborators continue to flout the Nuremberg Code and censor those of us who criticize ‘The Big Lie’ – we know where this leads,” Holland warned.

“It leads to atrocities. It leads to a legacy of ashes.”

Throughout the plandemic, these atrocities included children and teenagers becoming disabled or dying due to the jabs; adults and elderly people being denied life-saving treatments, and families being separated from one another in “quarantine camps.”

These crimes against humanity must stop. And people must take a stand and just say no to medical fascism whenever, and wherever, it rears its ugly head.

“It is in our power to say, ‘No more! Respect and uphold this code!'” Holland explained. “And let’s not forget: we are winning.”

“The narrative that these injections work is over. The narrative that we must lockdown is over. The narrative that we must test asymptomatic people is over. The narrative that our ‘leaders’ know what they’re doing is over. Let us let that sink in.”

“Summer of rage” leak: Biden ignored systemic attacks on religious orgs after Roe v. Wade

“Dozens of acts of violence, destruction, and harassment aimed at intimidating anti-abortion Christians and conservatives” represent a serious breach of the rule of law, not to mention outright persecution. But what concern does the Biden administration have for America’s foundations, constitution and law? The invasion of the Southern border points to the answer.

“Summer of Rage, Part VI: Biden Administration Ignores Systematic Attack on Religious Communities in Wake of Dobbs Leak,” by Alexander Marlow, Breitbart, August 20, 2022:

Since the leak of Justice Samuel Alito’s draft majority opinion in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case that eventually led to the overturning of Roe v. Wade, America has endured a “Summer of Rage.” The wave of demonstrations saw protesters going far beyond simply donning “Handmaid’s Tale” bonnets and gathering around the Supreme Court. There have been dozens of acts of violence, destruction, and harassment aimed at intimidating anti-abortion Christians and conservatives. In this series of articles, we identify key players, organizations, and locations in this radical movement. We will also explain elements of the interconnected system that provides organizational and/or financial support for this radical agenda.


According to a list maintained by the Family Research Council (FRC), there have been 87 attacks on churches or pregnancy centers since the Dobbs decision was leaked on May 2, 2022. Of those attacks, there have been 34 on churches, 53 attacks on pregnancy centers, and 23 “other incidents,” including attacks on government buildings, based on the FRC data.

This procession of hate crimes has been ongoing throughout the publication of the Summer of Rage exposé, which is now in its sixth installment. Just this week, we saw what appears to be yet another example. Vandals scrawled the threat “if abortions aren’t safe, neither are you,” as well as the words “Jane’s Revenge,” in red paint at the Bethlehem House pregnancy care center in Easthamptom, Massachusetts. Jane’s Revenge is the name of one of the amorphous groups of radical leftists that has been the subject of this series.

Pro-life pregnancy centers provide resources for families and encourage them to choose life for their unborn children. Bethlehem House is run by volunteers and provides wipes, car seats, strollers, blankets, clothing, and other essentials for young children.

They also give away blessed rosaries, which The Atlantic recently likened to “assault weapons.”

On June 25, 2022 alone, the day after Roe v. Wade was overturned, there were attacks on eight churches, eight pregnancy centers, and a government building.

These attacks have generated minimal acknowledgement, much less a response, from the Biden administration and federal law enforcement, who steadfastly track—and prosecute—incidents targeting abortion providers….
