Stipulated: It’s off-the-chart madness that a male won a women’s NCAA national championship in track. That another male is seeking to participate in female weight-lifting competitions. Especially that men get the opportunity to pummel women in mixed martial arts. And then there are the Connecticut girls, excluded from New England track regionals when boys took the top two spots, who have brought a complaint under Title IX, which mandates equal participation for women in educational programs. Said one girl, Selina Soule: “There have been countless other female athletes (affected) in the state of Connecticut, as well as my entire indoor track team.

The writer left out the part about football scholarships favor men 85-0. As far as which sports bring revenue to a school, it's definitely men's basketball and football and definitely a limited number of schools bring in huge revenues for those sports. Why do we only whine about women's sports not bringing in money? Men's track was cut at Maryland. Did it bring in any money?

Underlying logic of Title IX was flawed. College girls are less likely than college boys, to want to participate in sports. So the geniuses at colleges had to almost force girl sports upon the girls, to meet quotas. I suppose the U.S. Supreme Court could take a Title IX case, but who knows what Chief Judas Roberts would do? Who knows if Kavanaugh would still feel the need to prove himself? If the justices limited themselves to legislative intent, Title IX was a boy/girl thing, trannys were not considered.

Any male who tries to enter female athletic competitions has no respect for females, no self-respect, no respect for fair competition, and is not entitled to any respect. Catcalls would be more appropriate than applause as the tranny boy breaks the finish line tape ten yards ahead of the girls in the 100 meter dash. If they are capable of feeling shame, these cheaters should be shamed back into their male clothes and lives. Do we just call these trannies cheaters, or is it something deeper, something in deliberate conflict with divine order.? Transsexualism is raging mental illness, and it's a tragedy that the judiciary that saddled us with Title IX is going along with it, allowing this utter foolishness instead of ending it with Old Testament finality. . That said, Bob Maistros makes clear that Title IX has managed to chop off literally thousands of mens' college athletic programs in various sports--naturally, there is much less cutting in womens' athletics--when overall, men are far more interested in sports than women, both as participants and as spectators. Women rowers are becoming as common as grains of sand on the beach. (The recent college admission scandal involved, among other things, girls being recruited as rowers when they didn't row.) Yet another huge, unnecessary mess, brought to you by the earnest busybodies in the black robes.

Bad laws make for bad outcomes. So young men watch women enjoy certain sports but are denied participation because there is no men's program. And all the while women get the bucks for the same program. Its denied opportunity based purely on male /female gender. All it took was the prefect storm to come along and viola, we now have it. Thanks to the bad laws about bathrooms, we now have no basis to deny women trapped insided men's bodies from participing as women. But, but, women can't particpate in football. Untrue, by law they can. Unlike other quota laws, and Title IX is nothing but a quota law, it didn't demand quotas based on sex. Just quotas based on money. If a woman can earn a football scholarship, then they can ( see Antoinette "Toni" Harris). But a man can't earn a women's scholarship in rowing unless he is really a woman trapped inside a man's body. I say, go girls trapped inside a man's body, go! Maybe some common sense will break out after this bad law has maximized enough pain of the quota group it was intended to help.

The only answer is open athletic competition at all levels. Women demand "equality", how about breaking through the glass ceiling of athletic competition? As things are, the WNBA will eventually become the LGBQ...BA. Or the LGBQ..GA for non-male golfers. I think that's fair.

A pair of Bernies, one running for president, the other a wealthy corporate executive and philanthropist, are on opposite sides of the political spectrum, as well as the cultural divide. One has made life better for many. The other wants to suck the life out as many as he can. Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus, now 90, recently said that Sen. Bernie Sanders, campaigning for president as a Democrat with a Socialist’s pedigree, is the “enemy of every entrepreneur.” Sanders, who represents Vermont, has made a public career out of vilifying corporations, free markets, and the wealthy. Meet the creator. Fear the destroyer.

Vladimir Putin may be the expert on interfering in U.S. elections, but this past weekend Donald Trump gave North Korean ruler Kim Jong-un the power to tilt the 2020 election decidedly in favor of whoever his Democrat opponent ends up being. The president on Friday evening tweeted: “I will be leaving Japan for South Korea (with President Moon). While there, if Chairman Kim of North Korea sees this, I would meet him at the Border/DMZ just to shake his hand and say Hello(?)!” Assuming the tweet didn’t disguise previous secret arrangements, it was a shortest-of-short-notice cold invitation. Press reports say it was entirely spontaneous, the president’s own idea,

How do Democrats sell their policies when the economy is doing well and unemployment at 50-year lows? By avoiding the subject. At least, that’s what Democrats did during the two nights of debating. The very first question asked in the first debate, by Savannah Guthrie, was about whether the Democrats’ far-left agenda would risk the economic growth we’ve been enjoying. “Seventy-one percent of Americans say the economy is doing well, including 60% of Democrats,” she said. “What do you say to those who worry this kind of significant change could be risky to the economy?” Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the first to answer, pretended not hear the question.

Older folks remember Darryl Dawkins (aka Chocolate Thunder): a massive, free-spirited NBA megastar known for backboard-shattering dunks – and for claiming to be an alien from the planet Lovetron, where he practiced “Interplanetary Funkmanship.” No one quite knew what “Interplanetary Funkmanship” was. But it possibly related to stuffing candy bars on the bench, having little-to-no work ethic, and therefore taking large portions of games off in-between booming slams with nicknames such as “Yo Mama,” “In Your Face Disgrace,” and of course, “Sexophonic Turbo Delight.” In retrospect, the late Thunder would have made a perfect Democratic voter.

The Supreme Court’s 5-to-4 ruling on Department of Commerce v. New York is being characterized as nothing more serious than a temporary setback regarding President Trump’s wish to reinstate a citizenship question in the 2020 U.S. Census; the administration is expected to whip up a new rationale that the high court won’t consider “contrived” and get the question in. Unfortunately it is far worse than that, and Chief Justice John Roberts is giving further sign that he is yet another unpleasant surprise in GOP appointments to the highest level of the Judicial Branch, following in the footsteps of David Souter (Bush 41),

When it was time to call the candidates on stage for Tuesday night’s Democratic presidential debate, did one of the moderators yell “send in the clowns?” If not, someone should have. What a bunch of buffoons. We don’t use that word lightly. One definition of buffoon is “a person who amuses others by ridiculous behavior.” That’s a description that fits every candidate on the stage. Each was hilariously solicitous and comically transparent. Almost before the game show applause had settled, Beto O’Rourke launched into a juvenile Spanish-language hustle that left Sen. Cory Booker wide-eyed and most everyone else rolling their eyes.

Before California slips into the ocean after a massive earthquake, as some predicted decades ago that it would, it looks like it will first become America’s very own undeveloped nation. California has endured its share of Old Testament calamities in the modern world. Yet at times it seems that it will surely succumb to disasters created by its own hand. There are real monsters loose in the streets. Rats, “an army” of them “millions strong,” reports KOMO News, have “overthrown” Los Angeles.

On the campaign trail in 1992, Bill Clinton famously stopped by a McDonald’s during a jog. Impromptu or not, it helped cement Clinton’s image as a regular guy who understands budget-minded middle-class families. Fast forward 27 years, and Democrats are once again making campaign stops at McDonald’s. But not to eat there. No, no, no. They are showing up to protest the fast-food chain for “corporate greed” and for not paying its workers a “living wage.” Kamala Harris, for example, was in Las Vegas marching in a protest and telling those assembled that “if we want to talk about these golden arches being a symbol of the best of America, well

The New York Times is crowing that President Trump is apparently indecisive, if not downright schizophrenic, in deciding how to respond to Iran’s shooting down a U.S. Navy surveillance drone in the strategically vital Strait of Hormuz on Wednesday. We are to believe the Commander-in-Chief ordered an attack, then abruptly belayed that order – hopelessly torn, presumably, between pleasing MAGA Country and appeasing hawkish National Security Adviser John Bolton. Thankfully, the Executive Branch of the federal government is still able to maintain secrecy in conducting defense policy, and the actual deliberations on which options the President is considering probably remain unknown to the nation’s self-styled Newspaper of Record.

Plastic is the eco-activists’ favored demon of the moment. Policymakers can’t get enough of banning plastic consumer items. But the bans are worse than useless. They are counterproductive. California leads the world in virtue signaling, having outlawed single-use plastics bags, as well as plastic straws. Plastic bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and soap handed out by hotels might be the next items prohibited under California law, if lawmakers don’t ban plastics utensils first. Other states have rushed to enact bans, including Vermont, New York, and Hawaii (which has a de facto statewide ban due to multiple county bans).

Can Iran be free? Or would that entail the U.S. waging another endless, pre-emptive war that Americans simply will not accept in the long term? Of the world’s two most frightening – and most unpredictable – rogue terrorist powers, North Korea and Iran, it had long been thought the one whose ruling elite were in possession of less rationality was Pyongyang. But after meeting with President Trump twice, North Korean absolute ruler Kim Jong-un is acting largely according to the sane-but-evil geopolitical logic his power-hungry 20th century totalitarian antecedents practiced.

It was 20 summers ago that John F. Kennedy Jr.‘s plane crashed into the Atlantic Ocean amid thick fog — killing him and his two passengers, wife Carolyn Bessette Kennedy and her sister, Lauren Bessette, on their way to a Kennedy family wedding. Three lives, ended. And America’s most famous political family dealt another fatal blow. Now historian Steven M. Gillon has written the biography America’s Reluctant Prince, excerpted in this week’s PEOPLE and in bookstores July 9, which offers the first in-depth examination of John’s life. It reveals a man far more complicated than he might have seemed.

I’d urge everyone to read my colleague Jim Geraghty’s post on the thuggery this weekend in Portland. It was appalling to watch masked Antifa thugs attack Andy Ngo, and it was also appalling that the police weren’t immediately present to arrest his attackers. Antifa’s propensity to violence is well known, and while I’d love to hear a sympathetic explanation for the absence of police, the lack of response looks a lot like a dereliction of duty. There is, however, a simple and well-known legal reform that will go a long way towards deterring Antifa violence — even when police aren’t close by, but iPhones are. It’s called an anti-masking law.

The unidentified woman wanted to address the crowd inside the Greenwich Village gay bar where patrons fought back against police harassment 50 years ago, birthing the LGBTQ movement. She arrived unannounced and disrupted a drag show, drawing an unfriendly response at first.
