Amid gender lunacy, leftist dad screws with kindergartner’s mind

September 21, 2017

Before Olympic gold metal-winning decathlete Bruce Jenner became Caitlyn in the summer of 2015, the term “transgender” was an unfamiliar one. It was boldly introduced with a Vanity Fair magazine cover of a sultry Jenner, the father of four and step-father of four others, in a white, form-fitting swim suit. Dark, shoulder hugging tresses and professionally applied makeup caused Americans to do a double take scanning the magazines in the check out line. The photo was captioned “Call me Caitlyn.” Jenner was 65 at the time.

Over the past couple of years, the words ‘transition’ and ‘gender fluidity’ have been debuted by the LGBTQ community  If that acronym is unfamiliar, count yourself as antiquated.

In the wake of this “awakening,” pronoun police emerged, demanding an end to personal pronouns denoting gender.  ‘He’ and ‘she’ are doomed to extinction, replaced with ‘they’ and ‘them.’ But it gets even more convoluted as the University of Tennessee (Knoxville) Office for Diversity and Inclusion reveals with this chart consisting of an entirely new, unpronounceable,  gender neutral vocabulary.

The issue took off in Target stores, with protests over unisex dressing rooms and restrooms allowing men to use the urinals with girls in plain sight. The stores also eliminated labeling toy and bedding sections as appropriate for girls or boys. An economic boycott ensued and the stock plunged.

“Misgendering,” another  previously unknown word, can be the cause of transgender activists’ outrage as noted in this Phoenix New Times report.

Now we are being introduced to children barely past toddler-hood, whose parents are encouraging them to be “who they are,” boys who want to be girls and vice versa.

The issue has spawned a library of books aimed at “Pre-K”  children, barely out of diapers — titled,Teaching Kids About the Fluidity of Gender and the Importance of Acceptance.”

It’s against this backdrop we read an Arizona Republic article by parent Robert Chevaleau,My transgender daughter was forced to leave her school.”  It begins with the words, “My daughter is lucky” —  and ends with the same four words. He is describing his five-year-old kindergartner, “determined to learn to learn to lace up her own shoes” — who was previously his son.

Supportive and open-minded Dad, in his capacity as president of the Arizona Trans Youth and Parent Organization — AZTYPO — is making the rounds. Here is an article in the Phoenix New Times describing the family dynamics and — to no one’s surprise — his “major disappointment” when Donald Trump was elected.

It’s not much of a surprise that left-lurching politics is the back story to this sad tale.

Emmy Awards: Leftwing celebs get it wrong again

September 18, 2017

Mocking Pres. Trump takes center stage

The 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards took place Sunday night hosted by liberal Stephen Colbert, a flawed presidential predictorCelebs, who revel in grabbing the spotlight outdoing one another in the glam department, put their politics before their egos as they donned the same accessories: Rabid, hate-filled tirades aimed at President Trump and blue ‘ACLU Supporter’ ribbons, denoting their activism with the far left organization.  There was also a strong pro-illegal alien theme permeating the self-congratulatory awards ceremony.

Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer even got into the act, making a “surprise” appearance to ridicule Pres. Trump. In a perfect world, this treacherous act should render him unemployable in Republican circles. Spicer, who once wore his flag lapel pin upside down, symbolizing distress, has reportedly turned down an offer to appear on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ with his wife.

If these were the Academy Awards, we’d advise our readers to stop wasting money on overpriced tickets and less than entertaining movies, with increasingly grotesque subject matter. Keeping the overwhelmingly liberal Hollyweird crowd basking in wealth for a career based on reading other people’s words makes no sense.

Since the soiree celebrates television productions, conserve electricity next year by clicking the “off“ button. Treat yourself with a good book. Better yet, talk to someone who matters to you.

The majority of the awards program was filled with venomous tirades directed at Donald Trump, the President of the United States. Ironically, it was televised on Constitution Day. Fortunately for the hate mongers the First Amendment gives them the freedom to engage in immature temper tantrums. The good news is the show’s ratings tanked.

Watch Colbert and his like thinkers getting it wrong here:


Constitution Day: US exceptionalism unappreciated by thugs

September 17, 2017

The use of the term “American exceptionalism,” can be traced to Alexis de Tocqueville who, in the mid 1800s, described the United States as “exceptional” based on his admiration of our founding principles of freedom and liberty, rugged individualism, and free enterprise. In 1835, he was moved to write the multi-volume Democracy in America.

President Ronald Reagan spoke of America as “a land of hope, a light unto nations, a shining city on a hill.” Recent news has marred those lofty and inspiring words. We live in a time when chronically aggrieved people revere victim status. Raised with liberal dosages of moral relativism in public schools, they take exception to defining America as exceptional since in their view, there are no better or worse standards or governments. All entities are equivalent and everything should be tolerated.

The recent headlines are troubling. Black Lives Matter mobs and their claque engage in days of violence as they protest an acquittal in the case of a white former St. Louis police officer fatally shooting a black drug dealer following a high speed chase in 2011. Their motivation for rioting is raced based, without hearing the evidence presented in court. Three police officers responding to thugs breaking windows, setting fires and throwing paint at the home of the mayor were transported to a hospital after being hit by bricks and rocks hurled at them. One officer was hit in the head and suffered a broken jaw. 

After shutting down a major highway, hundreds of hooligans stormed an upscale mall breaking windows, and chanting an anti-capitalist threat, “No Justice, No Profits!” KDSK TV-5 reporter Jason Long tweeted “almost every storefront in the Loop is destroyed.”

U2 cancelled a sold out Saturday night St. Louis concert in the wake of the riots, issuing this statement. The St Louis Symphony Orchestra canceled its Friday and Saturday performances.

The U.S. Constitution gives these thugs First Amendment protections. Where else on earth could they chaotically disrupt the lives of others without consequence? Arrests were in response to violence and assaults. Their freedom to assemble, disrupt and spew their vitriol is enshrined.

For those of us who are grateful for the blessings of living in this exceptional nation, Hillsdale College offers a free and enlightening course on the Constitution. Hillsdale titles it, “Study the greatest political document ever written by man that secures your freedom.”

Sign up. It’s guaranteed to make you more knowledgeable than the entire gang of marauders could ever hope to be.

The Law Library of Congress provides a historical overview of Constitution and Citizenship Day.

May God continue to bless America.

 


DACA:Trump disappointingly pivots goes “bipartisan”

September 14, 2017

AZ Chamber’s Hamer hammers on behalf of illegals

 DACA, the acronym for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals is getting a lot of play these days, mostly attempting to strum on citizens’ heartstrings with sympathetic stories of the “plight” of the so-called D.R.E.A.M.E.R.s.

It is, in fact,  a program thrust upon us as an illegal executive order (video) by Barack Obama, and is nothing less than a frontal assault on the Constitution and the rule of law. Since its inception in 2012, DACA has granted more than 800,000 recipients renewable, two-year work permits and a reprieve from deportation proceedings. A toothless “remedy,” it purportedly applies specifically  to illegals brought to the United States by their illegally invading parents before they were 16 years old. In order to qualify for this absurd generosity, they must have been age 35 or younger as of June 2012. There is no way to verify their claims, which makes enforcement of the program a complete farce — resulting in astronomical fraud rates.

Donald Trump was elected by Americans who believed his promise to secure our border, build a fortified fence and not offer incentives to invaders. His get tough on illegal immigration message was as effective and compelling as his economic message in resonating with American voters, propelling him to the front of the line of 17 GOP presidential candidates in 2016. Last week when he cut a disastrous deal with “Chuck and Nancy,” we took him to task for bending to the Democrat minority leaders’ whims.

Now the relationship appears to be ongoing. On Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi once again emerged from a meeting with President Trump sporting smiles. It’s being reported their ‘New  Deal’ specifies bipartisan legislation called the DREAM Act that provides eventual citizenship for illegals claiming they were brought here as children.

“We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that’s acceptable to both sides,” Pelosi and Schumer said in a joint statement.

Sorry folks.  It’s not “acceptable” to conservatives who worked to elect Trump. Rewarding demands and civil unrest staged by non-citizens  —  is not how a Representative Republic functions.

This past week The Arizona Republic newspaper once again leaped into full-blown Periódico de la República mode, giving prominence to a report titled,Arizona business leader wants Congress to legalize DACA recipients.”

And who might that “business leader” be?

None other than the reliable voice of illegal labor profiteers, Chamber of Commerce president and CEO Glenn Hamer, who Seeing Red AZ has covered previously. Two links are included in the post, Glenn Hamer: Heretic betrays GOP again, which follows Hamer’s career path from executive director of the Arizona Republican Party to endorsing radically left-wing Democrat Janet Napolitano for governor. Anything for a buck, as the saying goes.

It’s critically important to recognize the fact that these are not benign business leaders looking to grow their entities, but hard-hitting,  nefarious actors.  In July 2007, Seeing Red AZ exposed the left-of-center Arizona Chamber of Commerce’s announced plans to target Republican state lawmakers who were instrumental in guiding theFair and Legal Employment Act (more commonly known as the Employer Sanctions law) to passage.

 


McCain feigns shock over Trump’s deal with Dems

September 13, 2017

John McCain‘s blatant hypocrisy exceeds rational bounds

Claiming “I haven’t seen anything like it before,” John McCain, Arizona’s Senior Senator, (ASS) is bewildered by President Trump’s recent decision to strike a deal with Democrats. The jointly agreed upon legislative package added over $15 billion to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, extended the debt ceiling, and funded the federal government until December.

“Haven’t seen anything like it before,” McCain was recently quoted as saying. “I have no way of divining his motives. I’m a pretty intelligent guy, but I don’t understand this.”

This self-described “pretty intelligent guy,” who graduated at the bottom of his U.S. Naval Academy class, either doesn’t look in the mirror while shaving or has developed a severe case of amnesia. His entire congressional career has been spent colluding with Democrats on legislation abhorrent to grassroots Republicans.

McCain has craftily cultivated his maverick” persona to provide a flamboyant glibness to his deceit.

When President Trump responded to increasingly incendiary nuclear threats from North Korean madman Kim Jong Un, John McCain .wasted no time in issuing criticism, saying, “I take exception to the President’s comments because you’ve got to be sure that you can do what you say you’re going to do. In other words, the old walk softly but carry a big stick.” McCain joined Democrats who claimed Trump’s comments were “unhinged.”

That is until double-talking McCain issued his own threats, saying “Kim needs to know that if he acts in an aggressive fashion, the price will be extinction.”

Although Pat Buchanan’s commentary, “What McCain Means,” was written in 2008 during McCain’s failed presidential bid, the issues remain relevant. 


Miss America contestants vie to bash Pres. Trump

September 12, 2017

In case you missed it, Miss America 2018 was crowned Sunday night. But unlike pageants of the past where the high point of the evening was the portion where contestants strutted their stuff in spike heels and swim suits and the competition included mostly marginally talented, sweetly smiling young women who earnestly answered questions about their future plans to cure cancer or reach the moon, there is a new system at play.

Politics has entered the arena where a Miss Arizona, Vonda Kay Van Dyke, wooed the judges with her novel ventriloquist act, earning her the crown in 1965.

Now all the finalists are ventriloquists, mouthing the leftist political lines so in vogue at the schools they attend and with the Hollywood crowd in the films they watch. Who else to emulate but actress Gwyneth Paltrow who was at a loss for words as she hosted a DNC fundraiser at her home, and told the guest of honor President Obama: “You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly.”

The politically loaded questions the Miss America contestants, who must be between the ages of 18 and 24, were asked were aimed at bashing President Trump. They dealt with dissecting the president’s response regarding the Charleston riots, and whether he was guilty or innocent of colluding with the Russians.

The winner, 23-year-old Cara Mund of North Dakota, also gave a winning answer to the question about whether President Trump should have backed out of the Paris Climate Agreement on “man made climate change” and whether the decision was good or bad. Without missing a beat and sounding as though she’d been coached by Al Gore, Mund said “it was bad, because climate change exists and the U.S. needs to be at the negotiating table.”

Bingo! 

The wrong answer for many of us was the right answer to gain the crown. And she didn’t even need a ventriloquist’s dummy. Cara Mund played both roles

These are the previous Miss America winners going back to the contest’s inception in 1921, when it was simply a beauty contest without blatant political overtures.


Jared Kushner needs a new day job

September 10, 2017

Senior Lightening Rod isn’t working out

Breitbart News reports on the disturbing back door alliance between President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and liberal Democrat Sen. Dick Durbin, a longtime amnesty advocate. 

A senior adviser to the president, Kushner heads the newly created Office of American Innovation, He has been acting as a conduit, aiding Durbin in lobbying the White House to support the illegal DACA / D.R.E.A.M.E.R.s.  Kushner also arranged phone calls between Durbin and then-Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, who now serves as Trump’s chief of staff.

And whadda’ya know?  John McCain’s best bud and traveling companion Lindsey Grahamnesty was in on the scheme. In the report, he’s fittingly described as “liberal Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham.”

Breietbart’s Neil Munro couldn’t be more correct as he writes:

“That amnesty-for-border-security deal is a long way short of Trump’s campaign promise of an effective border wall and is also very far short of his advocacy for the popular Raise Act merit immigration reform. The Raise Act would reform the nation’s immigration laws to help raise wages and opportunities for the 320 million Americans who dream of better lives for themselves and their children.”

Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS) John McCain and his fellow Republicrat Jeff Flake were the architects of the failed Gang of 8, another amnesty maneuver put together in Jan. 2013 immediately after Flake barely squeaked into the senate by a mere 3 points. The treacherous twosome teamed up with Sens. Lindsey Graham (SC), Marco Rubio (Fl) and four Democrat Sens. including Dick Durbin (Illinois), Robert Menendez (NJ), Chuck Schumer (NY), and Michael Bennet (Colo) — all integral to the nefarious cabal of amnesty plotters.

Menendez currently on trial, indicted on 14 counts of corruption, is being defended by a lawyer who actually claims the charges “could be an attack on Hispanics.”

….and so it goes.
