AZ joins states fighting Obama bathroom directives

Obama’s transgender bathroom mandate meets with resistance

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich and state Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas have announced that they have joined ten other states in a federal lawsuit to challenge Barack Obama’s mandate requiring all public K-12 schools to open up boys’ and girls’ locker rooms and restrooms to students of the opposite sex, based on student perceptions of their “gender identity.”

Since the President has threatened to deny federal funding to all schools that object to this outrageous decree,  Arizona has joined Texas, Alabama, Louisiana, Maine, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah, Georgia, West Virginia and Wisconsin in a lawsuit filed in the United States Court for the Northern District of Texas. The lawsuit is focused on who should set these sensitive policies —- the federal government via executive order or states and local school districts. The challenge seeks declaratory relief against a number of federal agencies in order to block the implementation of the administration’s unconstitutional interpretation of the law. The Heber-Overgaard Unified School District has also joined the state’s lawsuit as a plaintiff.

The lawsuit was filed Wednesday in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas in response the Obama administration’s issuance of a broad directive advising every public school district in the country they must allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity rather than their biological sex.

The implicit threat is that schools that do not abide by the Obama administration’s interpretation of the law could face lawsuits or a loss of federal aid.

Read the formal filing of the complaint which states in part these truths regarding the overt attempts at social engineering by the radically left-wing lame duck president:

“Defendants have conspired to turn workplaces and educational settings across the country into laboratories for a massive social experiment, flouting the democratic process, and running roughshod over commonsense policies protecting children and basic privacy rights. Defendants’ rewriting of Title VII and Title IX is wholly incompatible with Congressional text. Absent action in Congress, the States, or local communities, Defendants cannot foist these radical changes on the nation.”

    This is great news! The extremists on the left have shown themselves not only to be preposterous, but willing to endanger school children to foist deviancy upon us.

  2. Observer says:

    Homosexuality is now mainstreamed to our children as just another “lifestyle” from kindergarten on.. .

    The now trendy “transgender” was a term that came into usage with the bizarre antics of publicity seeking Bruce Jenner who destroyed his family in the process of his seeking “self awareness” with the help of agents and publicists.

    Why is this aberration being rammed down the throats of mainstream America when there is such a small percentage of people who even fit this category? Best estimates that I’ve read are between 0.2 to 0.3 percent

    What we are seeing in the public schools is not just a fluke.

    The public school system was devised not for educating our children in reading, writing and arithmetic. No. It was devised to bring all the children into one place, apart from their parents, and indoctrinate them. They’ve waited a very long time to finally bust out.

    There are countless stories each and every day about teachers who sexually abuse students. And most of them receive no punishment.
    In NYC, there is a number of teachers who are no longer allowed in the classrooms for various reasons. However, these teachers report to a certain location where they hang around all day doing who-knows-what so that they can continue to take home a very sizeable paycheck. It’s been going on for years and the taxpayers are apparently A-OK with it.

    Off topic, but this news regarding Gabby Giffords and her anti-gun PAC:

    Spending large amounts of money to defeat Kelly Ayotte (R) (NH).

    Giffords and her husband have sure been spending time on the road for Hillary.

    Wonder if Hillary would choose the astronut for her veep?

    I absolutely support this lawsuit. I have also stopped shopping at my neighborhood Super Target, where I spent thousands a year at the pharmacy, grocery, clothing, electronics and many other departments. I will not return as long as they keep the restrooms open to anyone who wants to enter regardless of their sex. Any parent who allows their children to enter such a restroom is foolishly putting convenience before safety.

    43 Republicans Join Democrats to Support Obama’s Transgender Agenda

    Voting No – Franks, Gosar, Salmon, Schweikert

    Voting Yes – McSally (R) along with (D) leftists Grijalva, Kirkpatrick

    • Matt DeGennaro says:

      McSally….McCain…they both find more to admire about liberal dems and their agendas than they do with Republicans.

      Conservatives? Both Mc’s hold us in contempt. To those of you who are on the fence with these two and Jeff the Flake, watch and learn. They are all liars.

      • Conservative Since Birth says:

        I’d like to know how some topics catch on like wildfire (transgender agenda), get the attention of Congress and get voted on so fast. We’re still waiting for action on the border – either enforce the laws already on the books or change them. What about the V.A. – vets suffering and dying and Congress just brings people in, talks and nothing is done.

        There are so many problems that need attention – and what do they act on? The transgender issue – and not in favor of the majority of Americans. The progressive communists are working overtime and our disgraced and disgraceful senator – McCain – is leading the charge “for Arizona.”

  6. Conservative Since Birth says:

    More McCain madness.

    I could not send a link from Conservative Review. Here is the latest Roll Call vote.

    Did your Senator vote to support Obama’s War on Suburbs? ‏

    Conservative Review Roll Call
    This vote was a procedural vote to kill an amendment offered by Senator Lee that would have defunded implementation of a Department of Housing and Urban Development rule that basically federalizes zoning laws and encourages the forced economic diversification of neighborhoods. Rhetorically speaking, this rule is a war on the suburbs as it uses the power of federal government to centrally plan out neighborhoods. The rule is a massive power grab by progressive bureaucrats to allow them to conduct large scale social experiments with real neighborhoods by forcing the collection of data that will be used to evaluate whether communities meet Washington guidelines and quotas on racial, economic, and other factors. The result will undermine local representation and push localities into more regional government structures that ultimately answer to Washington D.C.

    Infuriating: Those who voted YES – McCain, Lindsey Graham, Kelly Ayotte. Flake voted No.

    • Longtime GOP PC says:

      More evidence of the fact that they count votes and cut deals. McCain obviously thinks he has sufficient cover. Watch Jeff McFlake in the short term veer ever more to the right as he faces a 2017 reelection. Another reason to support term limits.
