Trumps Justice Department drops opposition to Texas Voter ID Law

Great news via The Right Scoop

NBC DFW – An attorney for a voting rights group says President Donald Trump’s administration has told her that the federal government no longer plans to challenge Texas’ strict voter ID law.

Danielle Lang, of the Washington-based Campaign Legal Center, said Monday that plaintiffs in the case were told by the U.S. Justice Department that it will be filing documents to formally drop its opposition to the Texas law. She called the decision an “extraordinary disappointment.”

The move marks a stark reversal under new Attorney General Jeff Sessions from the Obama White House, which joined a lawsuit against Texas in 2013. The Justice Department didn’t immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

You know the Left will scream “voter disenfranchisement” over this, making utter fools of themselves

Liberalism is an Ideology of Double Standards!

There are rules, except if Liberal Land where rules only apply some times, to some people. Fritz lays it out

Because we’re all getting tired of being forced to care listen to the press go on about the issue of the year, “transgender rights”.

Amen to that!

Female to male transgender girl taking testosterone wins Texas girls high school wrestling tournament:

. . . Beggs, who dismantled two opponents on Friday’s opening day, winning both by major decisions, picked up his third consecutive state-tournament victory with a pin of familiar rival Kailyn Clay of Grand Prairie. Beggs also defeated Clay in last week’s regional tournament before Clay also advanced to state.

After the match, Clay followed suit with the other wrestlers who have been pitted against Beggs, a female transitioning to a male more than a year into testosterone treatment, and declined to speak with reporters and was quick to exit the competition area at the Berry Center in the Cypress-Fairbanks school district.

Beggs is now 55-0 on the season.

In a reasonable world (aside from the all around unreasonability of sex conversion therapy and surgery) she/he would have been given the choice between wrestling and her hormone treatments. It’s high school; it ain’t that important. But no, now thanks to the “movement” her “right” to take hormones and compete in the sports at the same time result in the denial of fair treatment, all the “normal” girls in the wrestling world are to be placed at an enormous disadvantage in strength.

Rules? Standards? BAH! And if a young lady who has busted her ass to have a shot a a championship gets shorted because of “social justice” well that is just too bad!
