‘Sexuality and Gender: Findings from the Biological, Psychological, and Social Sciences’

This study, conducted by world renowned Johns Hopkins University scientists Dr. Lawrence S. Mayer and Dr. Paul R. McHugh, is a meta-analysis of data from over 200 peer-reviewed (and left-leaning) studies regarding “sexual orientation” and “gender identity.” It was published in the fall 2016 edition of The New Atlantis journal and is, far and away, the most objective, exhaustive and comprehensive study on the topic to date.

The research established, among other things:

  • “The understanding of sexual orientation as an innate, biologically fixed property of human beings — the idea that people are ‘born that way’ — is not supported by scientific evidence.”
  • “Sexual orientation” in adolescents is “fluid over the life course for some people, with one study estimating that as many as 80 percent of male adolescents who report same-sex attractions no longer do so as adults.”
  • “Compared to heterosexuals, non-heterosexuals are about two to three times as likely to have experienced childhood sexual abuse.”
  • “Gay”-identified people are “at an elevated risk for a variety of adverse health and mental health outcomes.”
  • “Gay”-identified people experience “nearly 2.5 times the risk of suicide.”
  • “The hypothesis that gender identity is an innate, fixed property of human beings that is independent of biological sex — that a person might be ‘a man trapped in a woman’s body’ or ‘a woman trapped in a man’s body’ — is not supported by scientific evidence.”
  • “Studies comparing the brain structures of transgender and non-transgender individuals … do not provide any evidence for a neurobiological basis for cross-gender identification.”
  • “[S]ex-reassigned individuals [are] about five times more likely to attempt suicide and about 19 times more likely to die by suicide.”
  • “[T]he rate of lifetime suicide attempts across all ages of transgender individuals is estimated at 41 percent, compared to under 5 percent in the overall U.S. population.”
  • “Only a minority of children who experience cross-gender identification will continue to do so into adolescence or adulthood.”

Lest you buy the left wing talking point that so-called “homophobia” leads to high rates of suicide and other devastating consequences of the “LGBT” lifestyle, a recent study from “gay”-affirming Sweden dispels this myth. The research, published in the May issue of the European Journal of Epidemiologyfound that people entering into a “gay marriage” were, as mirrored above, nearly three times as likely to commit suicide than their heterosexual counterparts.

“Even in a country with a comparatively tolerant climate regarding homosexuality such as Sweden,” observed the researchers, “same-sex married individuals evidence a higher risk for suicide than other married individuals.”

Christian school raided by California gov’t as religious freedom concerns cloud future

134216 w 700

From the Christian Post:

A Christian boarding school run by Teen Rescue in Northern California faces the possibility of closing after it was raided by state investigators earlier this year. The head of the school claims that its First Amendment rights, as well as parental rights, are being violated.

River View Christian Academy (RVCA), which serves to help troubled teens from across the U.S., has faced pressure from the Department of Social Services for over a decade over claims that it operates as an “unlicensed community care facility.”

Although the school had maintained through the years that schools are exempt from community care facility regulations, a law passed in 2016 requires many alternative boarding schools in the state to attain Community Care Licensing.

But in order to attain that licensing, the school fears that it would not be able to uphold its rules reflecting traditional Christian teaching on marriage and sexuality. Additionally, the school says that the state requires licensed facilities to allow students to have the right to engage in spiritual and sexual exploration.

Additionally, the law does not allow for religious exemptions in cases where a religious school would be forced to violate its moral convictions.

Texas border town declares itself sanctuary city for the unborn: ‘Here we will no longer murder our babies’

Waskom1OK, liberals, you can’t have it both ways. 

Texas border city with a population of about 2,200 has declared itself a sanctuary for the unborn and has banned abortion.

Waskom, Texas, which borders Louisiana 20 miles west of Shreveport, claims to be the first city in the nation to become a “Sanctuary City for the Unborn” by way of a resolution and ordinance unanimously passed by five members of the city council Tuesday night.

The ordinance makes organizations that perform abortions or assist in obtaining them “criminal organizations,” such as Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice Texas, and others like them.

It was modeled after the city of Roswell, New Mexico’s resolution declaring it a “sanctuary city for the unborn.” But the Texas ordinance goes even further because it bans abortions within city limits.

“The Supreme Court erred in Roe v. Wade when it said that pregnant women have a constitutional right to abort their pre-born children,” the ordinance reads, in part.

Father’s Day Updated To ‘Toxic Masculinity Awareness Day’

Article 1906

WASHINGTON, D.C.—In a special session called to order Friday, Congress voted unanimously to do a complete overhaul of Father’s Day, renaming the holiday “Toxic Masculinity Awareness Day” and redefining the day’s meaning to encourage citizens to heap shame and disgust on all fathers, current or potential.

Americans across the country excitedly prepared to celebrate the updated holiday designed to shame fathers and all things masculine as the weekend approached.

“It was just time,” said House Speaker Paul Ryan, citing the high numbers of depression and anxiety among men as “a good sign things are progressing in the right direction, but we still have a lot of work to do before all men, everywhere do the right thing and hate themselves with the appropriate level of vehemence.” The new initiative seeks to have all men wailing in the streets in sackcloth and ashes, flagellating and weeping with shame and regret for their harmful, problematic masculinity.

The rewritten holiday guidelines suggest cancelling any gift orders for cigars or plans to take dad out for steak and instead sitting dad on the floor in the living room and repeatedly shaming him for being part of the problem, saying things like “Take that money you were going to spend on a beard trimmer and instead donate it to women’s rights.” The government also established an associated website, ToxicFathersDay.gov, where you can download a free card to give your father that reads, “This isn’t your day any more. Do better.”

Other gift suggestions include an endangered fish donation in your father’s name, pouring out beer for those affected by toxic masculinity, and tickets to a male reeducation ceremony held deep in the Cascade mountain range.

60% Of Students At New York’s Ultra-Liberal Waldorf Schools Are Unvaccinated

Green Meadow Waldorf School mXCFcU

It’s often the über-liberal who are anti-vaxxers. 

As New York prepares to ban religious exemptionsfor vaccinations following recent measles outbreaks in the vaccine-averse Orthodox Jewish communities, the New York Times reports that around 60% of the 300 or so students attending New York’s ultra-liberal Waldorf school are unvaccinated. Of note, a 2014 analysis of CDC data by RealClearScienceconcluded that “anti-vaxxers are clearly more associated with the political left.”

Founded in the early 20th century by eccentric Austrian educator Rudolf Steiner who invented a metaphysical philosophy known as “anthroposophy,” the pricey Waldorf schools (which can run from $25,000 – $40,000 per year), ban textbooks from the 6th grade, while all forms of technology such as smartphones are prohibited altogether

Steiner believed that diseases were influenced by “astral bodies,” and that Anthroposophical medicine could “extend the knowledge gained through the methods of the natural sciences of the present age with insights from spiritual science,” such as using mistletoe to treat cancer. 

In 1923, Steiner wrote: “Treatment with modified virus vaccine is effective in the case of diphtheria, because the body is thus given a strong impulse to become active, but it has unfavorable after-effects. Particularly if a child is treated with vaccine, it will later suffer a hardening of its organization. One must therefore strive to replace vaccines with bathing treatment, especially in the case of diphtheria.”

Jordan Peterson Close To Launching “Anti-Censorship” Social Media Platform

JP

Psychologist and author Jordan B. Peterson announced this week that progress on Thinkspot, his subscription-based “anti-censorship” social media platform, has the project closer to launch.

Peterson and his team are beta testing the product, which he calls “an intellectual playground for censorship-free discourse”, according to the Washington Times. It comes at a time when social media sites like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Pinterest have been accused of arbitrarily enforcing vague terms of service and overreaching in their left-wing biased policing of their respective platforms.

On the June 9 Joe Rogan podcast, Peterson describes platform by saying: “Once you’re on our platform we won’t take you down unless we’re ordered to by a US court of law.”

Peterson’s fans were ecstatic, leaving comments like:

  • This is fantastic news and a testament of [sic] the power of the free market to balance things out! Amazing, and truly looking forward to signing up to Thinkspot!”

  • “This is great news! Alternative free speech platforms are the only way forward so we no longer have to trudge through the mires of increasing corporate censorship.”

  • “I can already see the media hit pieces lining up and the payment processing companies putting together their press releases.”

  • “This is what the social scene on the internet needs. Some strict competition to the usual social sites and their censorship garbage. And if it’s backed and headed up by Peterson makes it all the more engaging.”

1000s Of Illegals Quarantined After Exposure To Chicken Pox, Mumps

Migrants walking

Most measles exposure to US citizens comes from traveling abroad. 

Or from foreigners coming into the US. 

This one puts Democrats on the horns of a dilemma: what to do with illegals who are not / refuse to be inoculated? 

Approximately 5,200 adult migrants in US custody for illegally entering the country have been quarantined by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) after being exposed to mumps or chicken poxaccording to the agency. 

An ICE official told CNN on Friday that of the quarantined individuals, approximately 80% (4,200) were exposed to mumps, 800 were exposed to chicken pox, and around 100 migrants were exposed to both. They will be quarantined for 25 days. 

Just because individuals are quarantined doesn’t mean they have the mumps, but they’ve at least been exposed to it. From September 2018 to June 13, 297 people in ICE custody had confirmed cases of mumps, proven by blood test. –CNN

The agency began recording cases of mumps last September, with 297 cases for the period of time ending June 13.

I think there is heightened interest in this situation because it’s the mumps, which is a new occurrence in custody, but preventing the spread of communicable disease in ICE custody is something we have demonstrated success doing,” said ICE executive associate director for enforcement and removal operations, Nathalie Asher. 

“From an operational perspective, the impact is significant in the short and long term and will result in an increase in cohorted detainees’ length of stay in detention, an inability to effect removal of eligible cohorted detainees, and postponing scheduled consular interviews for quarantined detainees,” Ascher added.

Court Transcript Exposes Facebook’s View: User Privacy Is Legally Non-Existent

1863034702380507248

Facebook’s lawyer argued:

There is no privacy interest, because by sharing with a hundred friends on a social media platform, which is an affirmative social act to publish, to disclose, to share ostensibly private information with a hundred people, you have just, under centuries of common law, under the judgment of Congress, under the SCA, negated any reasonable expectation of privacy.

As The Intercept commented of the blunt remarks, “So not only is it Facebook’s legal position that you’re not entitled to any expectation of privacy, but it’s your fault that the expectation went poof the moment you started using the site (or at least once you connected with 100 Facebook “friends”).

Judge Chhabria took issue with the “binary” nature of Facebook’s conception of privacy in stating, “like either you have a full expectation of privacy, or you have no expectation of privacy at all,” and put the following scenario to Facebook’s legal team:

If I share [information] with ten people, that doesn’t eliminate my expectation of privacy. It might diminish it, but it doesn’t eliminate it. And if I share something with ten people on the understanding that the entity that is helping me share it will not further disseminate it to a thousand companies, I don’t understand why I don’t have — why that’s not a violation of my expectation of privacy.

Snyder’s response was illuminating regarding Facebook’s approach to users’ privacy:

Let me give you a hypothetical of my own. I go into a classroom and invite a hundred friends. This courtroom. I invite a hundred friends, I rent out the courtroom, and I have a party. And I disclose — And I disclose something private about myself to a hundred people, friends and colleagues. Those friends then rent out a 100,000-person arena, and they rebroadcast those to 100,000 people. I have no cause of action because by going to a hundred people and saying my private truths, I have negated any reasonable expectation of privacy, because the case law is clear.

Mitch McConnell: “I Am The Grim Reaper” Of Democrat’s Socialist Agenda

D8 AfUbXkBEkwye

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tweeted a “McConnell’s Graveyard” poster, listing several legislative items, written on tombstones, that have been  – according to Pelosi – been blocked by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The list included the For the People Act, the Equality Act, the Paycheck Fairness Act and Gun Violence Prevention:

McConnell’s response was swift, telling Fox News’ Laura Ingraham that “she’s got it right,” referring to Pelosi.

“She’s got it absolutely right. For the first time in my memory, I agree with Nancy Pelosi.”

“I am indeed the ‘Grim Reaper’ when it comes to the socialist agenda that they have been ginning up over the House with overwhelming Democratic support, and sending it over to America,”McConnell added. “Things that would turn us into a country we have never been.”

“None of those things are going to pass the Senate. they won’t even be voted on. So think of me as the Grim Reaper,”McConnell had said.

Economic Bill Of Rights: Bernie Wants Same Healthcare Promise As Venezuela

Mrz051819 color 1 4mb 1 orig 0

How well did that work out for Venezuela? 

Why would it be any different for the USA? 

Trump has succeeded in one thing: Pushing Democrats so far to the Left they look like economic fools in comparison.

Economic Bill of Rights

Kicking off his 2020 election campaign at George Washington University, Bernie Sanders pitched his Democrat Socialist Plan to the US.

Sanders seeks an “Economic Bill of Rights” that would include the right to a decent job that pays a living wage, quality health care, a complete education, affordable housing, a clean environment and a secure retirement.

Suddenly it is a fundamental right, no matter how little one produces, to have literally everything. Such promises have been made before, never successfully.

Marxist Sanders

Please consider The Marx Brother.

Having parted ways with some non-Marxists who managed to infiltrate his 2016 presidential campaign, Vermont’s Sen. Bernie Sanders will attempt to clarify this afternoon that he is not like other candidates seeking the Democratic nomination in 2020.

Many readers may find it laughable that Mr. Sanders would attempt to position himself even further to the left than he did in 2016. But as a Journal editorial noted in April, there’s nothing funny about the extreme commentary from people who are now members of the Sanders 2020 operation. For example, current Sanders speechwriter David Sirota once wrote an op-ed titled “Hugo Chávez’s Economic Miracle”. And Mr. Sirota isn’t the only Sandernista who has lauded the Chavistas. Assessing the current Sanders team, the Journal observed: “Voters need to understand that they don’t merely admire Venezuela. By their own words, they want America to emulate it.

Given the long history of Mr. Sanders’ friendly relations with communist thugs, one must be optimistic to assume his brand of socialism would remain “democratic.” How many Americans want to live through a revolution dreamed up by an angry, underemployed writer anyway?

Attendees at today’s Sanders event can expect him once again to urge U.S. adoption of the same health care guarantee that’s been made for years by the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.

US Govt’s Entire Russia-DNC Hacking Narrative Based On Redacted Draft Of Crowdstrike Report

Wasserman 0

You don’t have to be super smart to follow what happened here. The DNC refused to allow the FBI investigate the hacking of their servers. Why? 

It’s been known for some time that the US Government based its conclusion that Russia hacked the Democratic National Committee (DNC) on a report by cybersecurity firm Crowdstrike, which the DNC paid over a million dollarsto conduct forensic analysis on servers theyrefused to hand over to the FBI

CrowdStrike’s report made its way a joint FBI/DHS report on an Russia’s “Grizzly Steppe“, which concluded Russia hacked the DNC’s servers. Crowdstrike’s claim has drawn scrutiny from cybersecurity experts according to former Breitbart reporter Lee Stranahan. 

Now, thanks to a new court filing by longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone requesting the full Crowdstrike analysis, we find out that the US government was given a redacted version of the report marked “Draft,” as reported by the Conservative Treehouse

What makes the whole thing even more hokey is a footnote admitting that “counsel for the DNC and DCCC informed the government that they are the last version of the report produced.” 

Crowdstrike request

So to be clear – the entire narrative that Russia hacked the DNC is based on a redacted draft of a report which Crowdstrike appears not to have even finalized

Nation Spends Day Acknowledging Existence Of Completely Unnecessary Parent

U.S.—While everyone has a mother–a necessity in every family for raising and providing for the children–there is a second type of parent some people have called a “father.” It is unknown what purpose this seemingly vestigial parent provides, but today is a holiday known as Father’s Day, where the existence of fathers is acknowledged even if their purpose is unknown.

Ruling: Cops must see crime happen

5c3803461dfcc imageThis is not good for women and domestic violence victims. 

Women will die because of this decision. 

I hope it’s appealed. 

An Idaho Supreme Court opinion negated decades of common practice and now requires officers to witness a misdemeanor in order to arrest a suspect.

In a case where a northern Idaho man was arrested for allegedly touching a woman’s backside without her consent, he won an appeal, claiming he was arrested without a warrant and it violated his right to warrantless search and seizure. The Supreme Court vacated the man’s conviction Wednesday and enacted statewide change in a pen stroke.

The man, Peter Clarke, was arrested after the woman reported the incident to the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office, which relied on her witness statements to make an arrest.

Bernie Plagiarizes Stalin With ‘Economic Bill Of Rights’

Sanders fist 1

Nothing new under the sun. 

Here is an excerpt from Sanders’ speech viaRedState:

***

A Bill of Rights that establishes once and for all that every American, regardless of his or her income in entitled to:

  • The right to a decent job that pays a living wage
  • The right to quality health care
  • The right to a complete education
  • The right to affordable housing
  • The right to a clean environment
  • The right to a secure retirement

These six “rights,” which define Sanders’ platform, are indistinguishable from the rights identified in the 1936 Soviet Constitution, which is also known as the Stalin Constitution.

Please read Articles 118-122 of this constitution. (Source: Bucknell University)

(Emphasis mine.)

ARTICLE 118. Citizens of the U.S.S.R. have the right to work, that is, are guaranteed the right to employment and payment for their work in accordance with its quantity and quality.

ARTICLE 119. Citizens of the U.S.S.R. have the right to rest and leisure. The right to rest and leisure is ensured by the reduction of the working day to seven hours for the overwhelming majority of the workers, the institution of annual vacations with full pay for workers and employees and the provision of a wide network of sanatoria, rest homes and clubs for the accommodation of the working people.

ARTICLE 120. Citizens of the U.S.S.R. have the right to maintenance in old age and also in case of sickness or loss of capacity to work. This right is ensured by the extensive development of social insurance of workers and employees at state expense, free medical service for the working people and the provision of a wide network of health resorts for the use of the working people.

ARTICLE 121. Citizens of the U.S.S.R. have the right to education. This right is ensured by universal, compulsory elementary education; by education, including higher education, being free of charge; by the system of state stipends for the overwhelming majority of students in the universities and colleges; by instruction in schools being conducted in the native language, and by the organization in the factories, state farms, machine and tractor stations and collective farms of free vocational, technical and agronomic training for the working people.

ARTICLE 122. Women in the U.S.S.R. are accorded equal rights with men in all spheres of economic, state, cultural, social and political life. The possibility of exercising these rights is ensured to women by granting them an equal right with men to work, payment for work, rest and leisure, social insurance and education, and by state protection of the interests of mother and child, prematernity and maternity leave with full pay, and the provision of a wide network of maternity homes, nurseries and kindergartens.

And as Vaughn notes – about the only thing Bernie didn’t pluck from Stalin was the “right” to a clean environment, something humanity was far less concerned with in 1936.

The following comments were made during an Green New Deal town hall meeting at a church in Toronto recently, as reported by the National Observer. An activist lawyer had this to say about Canada’s resource industry, verbatim from the article: “(Pipelines and resource developments) involve large numbers of man camps, and wherever there are man camps or any kind of natural resource development, you have high rates of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, human trafficking, high rates of child-porn rings — both in Canada and in the U.S.”

DOJ to question senior CIA officials regarding origins of Russia probe

AP19158550963068 1 670x437This is a big deal. The Democrats in the House won’t ask, so the DOJ will. 

This goes to the heart of the question: did the FBI go on a witch hunt to derail Trump’s candidacy? That should concern every American, not just Republicans. 

The interviews come after President Trump empowered the attorney general to declassify major players involved in the Mueller report.

“The Mueller report, I wish, covered the origins of how it started — the beginnings of the investigation and how it started — it didn’t cover that,” explained the president. “This has been a very bad thing for the United States…it’s been a total waste of time.”

Barr’s “all encompassing” review aims to uncover how the Obama-era FBI and CIA came to the conclusion that Russian operatives aided the Trump campaign in the 2016 elections.

Sen. Bernie Sanders outlines ’21st Century Socialists Bill of Rights’

AP19163691258545 655x437The original Bill of Rights acknowledges that my rights end when they take rights away from you. 

So the right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness didn’t remove those rights from others. 

But the 21st Century Socialist Bill of Rights does just the opposite. It takes someone else’s desires (for my money, my labor) and makes it their own. 

“A Bill of Rights that establishes, once and for all, that every American regardless of his or her income is entitled to the right to a decent job that pays a living wage, the right to quality health care, the right to a complete education,” he stated.
