A Question to all the famous folks accusing President Trump of “removing protections” from Tans-Kids

First the story

Katy Perry, Josh Groban, inauguration performer Jackie Evancho, Lance Bass and other celebs took to Twitter on Wednesday (Feb. 22) to speak out against Pres. Trump’s action to roll back bathroom protections for transgender students. The controversial move revoked the landmark guidance issued to public schools by the Obama administration that allowed transgender students to use bathrooms that correspond to their gender identity.

Protections? From what? To say the president removed protections indicates that somehow now students who “identify” as the opposite sex are in danger if they use the bathroom that matches their actual gender. Sorry, but this is nothing more than baseless hyperbole and emotionalistic babble frankly. I mean are we to believe that a boy using a stall in the girls bathroom is safer than he is using one on the boys bathroom? Apparently, that boy needs “protection” from something, what is that something? Are his feelings being protected? If so then who is protecting the feelings of school girls who are made uneasy by a male in their restroom? Are their feelings no longer of any import? Apparently not. Here are some “thoughts” by some celebrities

Again, what danger lies in the restroom that matches their actual gender? 

Here is another

Well, it is, according to our Constitution, a state level decision. Since our founders did not reserve that power to the national government, it is purely a state decision. I do wish Ms. Evancho would take a basic civics course at the very least. President Trump simply reversed an executive order by President Obama and returned such a decision to the various states, and the people of those states. Here is Lance Bass

Again what are they being protected from? It is easy to post rhetorical drivel. How about some actual evidence that Trans-Americans in schools need protecting if they have to use the restroom that matches their plumbing?

Compassion? What of compassion for a young girl made very uneasy by a man in her restroom? Perhaps this is Adam Shankman waging a war on women? Clearly he lacks any compassion for them! What kind of knuckle dragging mouth breather is Shankman anyway? Of course, Adam Shankman, and the rest of these celebs mean well, but their rhetoric reveals their lack of critical thinking, and consistency. They wish to “protect”a certain group by throwing another group under the bus. Their message is very clear. America must respect only the feelings of certain groups, that is groups deemed worthy by them. Elitism anyone?

Obama’s DHS Tried To Hack Indiana’s Election System When Mike Pence Was Governor – Daily Caller
.

.
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials tried to hack Indiana’s state electoral system with at least 14,800 “scans” or hits between Nov. 1, 2016, to Dec. 16, 2016, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.

The attacks are the second confirmed IT scanning assault by DHS officials against states that resisted then-President Barack Obama’s attempt to increase federal involvement in state and local election systems by designating them as “critical infrastructure” for national security.

Members of the National Association of Secretaries of State voted Saturday at their winter meeting to oppose the designation. They are asking President Donald Trump to overturn it…

Feds Paid $1 Billion In Social Security Benefits To People With No Social Security Number – Washington Free Beacon

The Social Security Administration paid $1 billion in benefits to individuals who did not have a Social Security Number (SSN), according to a new audit.

The agency’s inspector general found errors in the government’s documentation for representative payees, otherwise known as individuals who receive retirement or disability payments on behalf of another person who is incapable of managing the benefits themselves.

The audit released Friday found thousands of cases where there was no SSN on file.

Over the last decade, the agency paid $1 billion to 22,426 representative payees who “did not have an SSN, and SSA had not followed its policy to retain the paper application.”

“Furthermore, unless it takes corrective action, we estimate SSA will pay about $182.5 million in benefits, annually, to representative payees who do not have an SSN or paper application supporting their selection,” the inspector general said.

The inspector general also found the agency paid $853.1 million in benefits since 2004 to individuals who had been terminated as representative payees by the agency.

The inspector general said the errors occurred because the agency did not keep paper applications supporting an individual’s case to receive benefits on behalf of another and did not update its system if their status was terminated…

Democrat Representative Filing Lawsuit To Restore Anti-Cop Painting In Capitol – Hot Air

Remember that painting of protesters in St. Louis who have cops, depicted as pigs, pointing guns at them? The disagreement over the painting seemed to come to an end last month when the Architect of the Capitol concluded it violated rules for art hanging in the U.S. Capitol. Today the Hill reports that Rep. Lacy Clay will file a federal lawsuit against the Architect of the Capitol seeking to have it restored:

Clay will argue that the painting’s removal, which followed outcry from House Republicans and police advocacy groups, violated his constituent’s First Amendment rights to free expression.

The painting by student David Pulphus showed a confrontation between black protesters and police officers with guns drawn, depicted as feral pigs…

Illegal Alien Charged With Murder One Month After Being Released From Jail – American Mirror

An illegal alien has been charged with murdering an American in Denver just one month after being released from jail.

Ever Valles is a criminal illegal immigrant who is one of two men to be charged in the killing of 32-year-old Tim Cruz, a Hispanic-American landscaper, at a Denver light rail station.

Valles and his accomplice Nathan Valdez allegedly attempted to rob the victim and then murdered him while he was waiting at the station, according to Fox 31 Denver.

The illegal alien was previously arrested in October by Denver Police for car theft and other charges.

After the arrest, federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials asked the Denver Police Department to notify them when Valles was going to be released because he was wanted for possible deportation.

After he posted bond, Denver Police proceeded to release the illegal alien suspect without notifying the ICE officials in time.

NBC 9News reports:

A statement from ICE sent to 9Wants to Know says ICE believes Denver failed to honor a detainer it placed on Valles upon his initial arrest in October on the car theft case…

Ivanka Trump’s Perfume Soars To No.1 Bestseller On Amazon Despite Boycotts – Heatstreet

Ivanka Trump’s signature perfume is a best seller on retail giant Amazon.

Ivanka Trump Eau de Parfum Spray For Women ($34 for a 3.4-ounce bottle) was No. 1 on Amazon’s list of bestselling fragrances and perfume for at least the sixth consecutive day. One reviewer wrote: “I normally buy this at Nordstrom.

Milo Resigns From Breitbart – Mediaite

After days of speculation, it is official: Milo Yiannopoulos is out at Breitbart, with news of his resignation reaching social media just minutes ago via Michael Grynbaum of The New York Times.

In a statement published minutes ago, Yiannopoulos said, “Breitbart News has stood by me when others caved,” continuing, “I would be wrong to allow my poor choice of words to detract from my colleagues’ important reporting, so today I am resigning from Breitbart, effective immediately.” After Yiannopoulos was slated to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), a video of him discussing pedophilia made the rounds on Twitter and earned pretty widespread condemnation.

Yiannopoulos responded to the outcry insisting that he has an “utter disgust [for] adults who sexually abuse minors” while acknowledging that “these videos, even though some of them are edited deceptively, paint a different picture.”

Hours after CPAC uninvited him on Monday, Simon & Schuster cancelled the publication of Yiannopoulos’s highly-anticipated book Dangerous; Matt Schlapp, the chair of the American Conservative Union, said Tuesday morning, “Over the weekend I was made aware of these comments and it just broke through very important boundaries and we felt like the CPAC stage was not an appropriate place for this any longer.”…

Clinton Donor Quits CIA Because Of Trump: Says Decision Not About Politics – Washington Free Beacon

A CIA employee who contributed thousands of dollars to Hillary Clinton in 2016 and who is a registered Democrat announced his decision to leave the agency in a Washington Post column published Sunday, writing that his departure “had nothing to do with politics.”

Edward Price resigned from the CIA last week and used the Washington Post to explain his decision that he could not “in good faith serve this administration as an intelligence professional.” Price wrote that his “decision had nothing to do with politics,” and that he “would have been proud to again work under a Republican administration.”

“As intelligence professionals, we’re taught to tune out politics,” Price wrote.

Unmentioned by Price or the Washington Post is the fact that Price gave $5,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee that splits contributions between the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Public records indicate that Price is registered to vote as a Democrat in the District of Columbia.

Price rose through the ranks at the White House during the Obama administration. By the end of the administration, Price was the top spokesman and a senior director for Obama’s National Security Council…

Obama’s “Refugees” To Cost American Taxpayers Over $4 Billion In 2017 – Arutz Sheva

While much of the controversy surrounding America’s refugee resettlement program has focused on the security threat some refugees from terror hotspots may pose, little attention has been paid to the financial burden, borne by the taxpayer, of allowing in hundreds of thousands of migrants who are supported for years by the federal government.

According to data from a September, 2016 study by the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, and a November, 2015 study by the Center for Immigration Studies, the roughly 519,000 refugees allowed into the United States since October 2009 will cost the federal government some $4.1 billion in 2017 alone, Breitbart News reported.

This figure does not include secondary costs borne by state and local governments, which, according to the National Academy of Sciences study totaled some $57.4 billion annually from 2011 to 2013.

The direct costs of resettlement will remain between $2-4 billion per year through at least 2022.

The above-listed costs do not include the expenses projected to be incurred by future refugees not yet in the country…

Trump’s DHS Establishes Support Program For Victims Of Criminal Aliens – Breitbart

Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary John F. Kelly ordered the director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to create a program to assist the victims of crimes committed by illegal aliens. The program creates a liaison and authorizes the disclosure of suspect immigration statuses and other pertinent data.

Secretary Kelly ordered the creation of the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) Office to help reverse policies of the previous administration that kept certain information about criminal aliens the victims of their crimes.

“Criminal aliens routinely victimize Americans and other legal residents,” Kelly wrote in a six-page memo obtained by Breitbart Texas. “Often, these victims are not provided adequate information about the offender, the offender’s immigration status, or any enforcement action taken by ICE against the offender.”

I am establishing the [VOICE] Office within the Office of the Director of ICE, which will create a programmatic liaison between ICE and the known victims of crimes committed by removable aliens,” the secretary explained. “The liaison will facilitate engagement with the victims and their families to ensure, to the extent permitted by law, that they are provided information about the offender, including the offender’s immigration status and custody status, and that their questions and concerns regarding immigration enforcement efforts are addressed.”…

Riots Spread From Paris To Rest Of France – Truth And Action

After two weeks of general unrest across the European country, protests have given way to outright riots and street fights in some 20 districts. The trouble initially started when a black man alleged that police anally raped him with a baton, sparking outrage. However, after the authorities filed charges against the officers involved, agitators exploited the news to instigate violence in Paris and beyond:

Police in Paris are struggling to cope with the fall out from a plague of riots which have kicked off in the city’s northern suburbs.

The scandal, which has seen four police officers charged, sparked a series of legal protests. But a number a violent, illegal protests have also taken place, with trouble now nearing its third week.

Hundreds of cars have been torched, shops and banks smashed up, and even a disability vehicle was destroyed. A coach full of tourists from South Korea was targeted in northern Paris on Tuesday while a neighbourhood close to one of the busiest train stations in the city Gare Du Nord which houses the Eurostar train network was also hit.

Local reports suggest the popular Marais district in central Paris was also the scene of angry outbursts yesterday.The north central Île-de-France region has been rapidly deteriorating with police confirming the violence is getting worse each night, according to broadsheet Le Figaro…

French Police Training Eagles To Take Down Drones – Daily Mail

Birds of prey are being trained to prevent terror attacks in France, after being recruited by the country’s air force.

A team of four eagles is being trained to bring down remote-controlled drones when they stray into unauthorised airspace.

It is feared that terror groups could use drones – types of which can be bought from toy stores – packed with explosives to target civilians or military landmarks.

Experts believe training eagles to deal with threatening drones is far safer than using bullets to shoot them down.

Air force general Jean-Christophe Zimmerman told Reuters: ‘These eagles can spot the drones several thousand metres away and neutralize them.’…

DHS Authorizes Hiring 10,000 Immigration Officers – Breitbart

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary John F. Kelly authorized the hiring of an additional 10,000 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents and enforcement officers. The move by DHS delivers on a promise made by President Donald Trump to increase enforcement – particularly in removing criminal aliens inside the borders of the U.S.

Secretary Kelly ordered the director of ICE to immediately begin the process of hiring 10,000 to effectively enforce the immigration laws in the interior regions of the U.S., according to a DHS memo obtained by Breitbart Texas. In addition, Kelly authorized the agency to hire additional operational and mission support staff, along with legal staff.

Kelly said the memo implements the Executive Order, “Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States,” issued by President Trump on January 25.

ICE agents and enforcement officers were used earlier this month to conduct a targeted roundup of criminal aliens in metropolitan areas across the country. Agents and officers arrested more than 600 criminal aliens in 11 states, Breitbart Texas reported. The operation spawned a rash of “fake news” reports, tweets, and other social media comments that sparked unnecessary fear among immigrants not in the sights of the targeted operation…

Iranian Dissidents Demand Investigation Into Islamic Regime’s Secret U.S. Lobbying Network – Washington Free Beacon

A group of nearly 100 prominent Iranian dissidents is demanding that Congress launch investigations into clandestine efforts by the Islamic Republic to influence U.S. policy using a network of lobbyists and propaganda pieces placed in Voice of America’s Persian service, according to a letter sent to leading lawmakers and obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

The group of dissidents, composed of prominent Iranian voices that oppose the hardline regime in Tehran, says that Congress is not doing enough to expose the Iranian regime’s lobbying efforts in D.C. and propaganda network, which is said to include some at VOA Persia.

Iranian-American groups claiming to represent American interests are said to be carrying water for the Islamic regime inside the White House and on Capitol Hill, according to these dissident voices.

The letter cites VOA’s Persian service as a source of pro-Iran corruption. The Free Beacon has reported multiple times on claims that VOA has been infiltrated by Iran regime loyalists who seek to spin coverage in a favorable way for Tehran. In one instance, an Iranian dissident was barred from appearing on VOA Persia for voicing critical opinions about the regime.

The letter comes at a time when the Trump administration is seeking a tougher approach on Iran for its repeated violations of international accords governing the nuclear deal…

What the media misses about Trump’s Sweden statements

Sure, President Trump could have been clearer in referencing what is happening to Sweden. He needs to work on that. But, his words, though inartfully spoken, are based in truth. Tucker Carlson sets the record straight

take a look at what a police officer in Sweden posted about his country. As Jenn Jacques points out it validates Trumps words

A social media post from a Swedish police investigator is laying validation at the feet of the United State President.

Trump’s comments during a Florida campaign rally on Saturday – which some took as a misstatement about a supposed terror attack – dovetail with what Springare has been seeing during a typical week in Orebro, Sweden.

Speaking from Melbourne, FL. on Friday, the President stated:

“You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden, Sweden. Who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible.”

Five rapes, three assaults, a pair of extortions, blackmail, an attempted murder, violence against police and a robbery made up Springare’s caseload for a five-day period earlier this month, according to a Feb. 3 Facebook post he wrote. The suspects were all from Muslim-majority countries – Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia and Turkey – save for one Swedish man nabbed in a drug-related case.

In a Facebook post on February 3, 2016, police investigator Peter Springare shared his extreme displeasure with what has happened to his country after accepting hoards of Muslim immigrants:

You can go read his entire post at the link above

In short, the media is so busy trying to make the president look bad, and discredit him they are missing what price Sweden and the rest of Europe is paying for allowing massive immigration of people who do not share Western values. In other words, the media, again, is not investigating, reporting and informing. They are simply too busy attacking Trump to be what they are supposed to be, journalists.
