Workplace wokeness: The moment
I couldn't take it anymore

My company provides services to insurance carriers. Recently, a large, nationally operational third-party administrator issued a directive, excerpts of which I have included. Hello Team, We wanted to send out a note regarding this, as the Carriers do not want to see the word "tranny" or "trans" manually entered when referring to a transmission or transmission fluid as it is a Political Correctness issue. We understand that it has been used for a while and is considered industry slang however, in today's society it can rub some the wrong way and create legal issues.

Here's what can happen. The 75 million must accept that the United States of America as a structural and functional constitutional republic is over and gone and not coming back. The vast artifacts of scientific advancement ended the struggle for material survival (post-scarcity), and the detachment of legal rights from God's love (post-Christianity) made following the Constitution too much of a bother. The best way forward as Americans in one national family under God is to form a quasi-secretive brotherhood in every county. A man after my own heart.

Bravo! My wonderful kind husband prefers to be polite and refer to someone by their new entitlement based on desiring different genetics. Much to his chagrin I become very firm and dogmatic and remind him how offensive it is to refer to a he man as a she woman.

It's an automotive term and is used in that context. The only way sexually confused people could possibly be offended is if they only heard part of a conversation, and are looking to make a stink as a result of only hearing part of a conversation.

On a favorite YT transmission channel the host has 40 years of experience repairing automatic transmissions. He explains that the plastic piston used to activate one of the gears should always be replaced with a metal piston to increase reliability. He said, "The number one reason for tranny failure is plastic pistons." I don't believe he had any idea of the double entendre.

It's spring graduations these days, and out come the illegals, proudly waving the flags of the nations they don't want to be sent back to. That was the case again in San Diego, where one illegal immigrant, Javier Diego Jacinto, wildly waved the Mexican flag at his graduation from San Diego State University, touting his status as a DACA recipient, and gave interviews for the television cameras. He's not the first (snip) Which is pretty much the height of ingratitude. Who teaches a kid like that to go wave the Mexican flag instead of the American one after graduating at taxpayer expense from a U.S. university?

The Biden administration wants to force taxpayers to continue to pay for ugly, unpopular federal buildings and is resorting to possibly illegal demands for resignations-or-be-fired from a federal advisory board more than a century old. In February, Biden scrapped Trump’s executive order, “Promoting Beautiful Federal Civic Architecture” that …harshly criticized modern architectural styles and instead lauded Roman-Greco-inspired buildings. (snip) Yesterday, the Biden administration notified 4 Trump-appointed members of the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts that they must resign by the end of the business day or be terminated, despite the fact that there is no provision for firing members who are appointed to 4-year terms.

On May 18, Pennsylvania held its customarily scheduled municipal primary elections. Following the example of previous municipal primary elections, Keystone State voters were faced with several statewide questions and ballot initiatives. This year, these prompts included a new genre of questions: those related to Gov. Tom Wolf’s emergency powers. (snip) Overall, Keystone State voters rejected Wolf’s heavy-handed gubernatorial emergency powers, which shows their desire to rightfully inject the people and the legislative branch back into the decision-making process when it comes to prolonged (and unnecessary) emergency declarations.

Buck Throckmorton over at Ace of Spades has an expert rant, decrying the incredible racism and white supremacy of the word 'Latinx,' courtesy of the Democrats. He begins: Question: Who uses the term “Latinx”? Answer: White, left-wing English speakers. Question: Who doesn’t use the term “Latinx”? Answer: Latinos and Latinas. Per a Pew Research Poll conducted in December 2019, only 3% of Hispanics use the term “Latinx.” Three percent! You are more likely to find a Whole Foods customer wearing a MAGA hat than you are to find an Hispanic who identifies as Latinx.

Twenty-one-year-old Lucas Gerhard was arrested almost two years ago in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, for sending an obvious joke to friends via a private Snapchat. Since then, he spent 83 days in jail, before being transferred to house arrest, where he is unable to go to school, leave the house, or use the internet. And this is all because he made a private joke about his legal AR-15. This is a heinous assault on both his First and Second Amendment rights. Moreover, it takes place against a backdrop of leftist prosecutors and governors across America bending over backward to release violent criminals.

zIn the four years he was President, Donald Trump rebuilt the economy after the policy disasters of the Bush-Obama years, significantly curtailed illegal immigration, confronted and exposed the Chinese Communist Party, and with Operation Warp Speed conquered the China Coronavirus pandemic. While this list is impressive, his most significant long-term accomplishment may well place him in the pantheon of the American presidents that saved the nation: he fortuitously ripped open the floorboards and exposed the termites stealthily and relentlessly consuming the cultural, societal, and governmental foundation of the country.

Well, this isn’t going to help the corporate media narrative that “insurrectionists” inspired by President Trump’s rhetoric tried to overthrow democracy at the Capitol. Yesterday on ABC’s This Week George Will said, “I would like to see January 6th as burned into the American mind as firmly as 9/11,” and I don’t think he meant as an example of agents provocateurs creating false flag incidents to discredit their political rivals. But thanks to a court filing that has escaped corporate media notice, we now know that the Justice Department has seized over $60,000 from the bank accounts of John Earle Sullivan, who sold video he took of activities that day

Joe Biden wants to know what's in your bank account, and he'd like to keep watching. That's the alarming issue Reason magazine has explored, noting that buried deep within Biden's much-touted tax-hikes-for "infrastructure" American Families Act unveiled last April 28 is a sneaky Democrat plot called the American Families Tax Compliance Agenda. That will force the IRS to hire 87,000 new IRS agents, all of them armed with vast, new and expanded surveillance powers. Biden tax plan would cull financial data on masses of law-abiding, tax-compliant Americans. In the name of catching tax dodgers, the Biden administration is seeking serious snooping rights to oversee all American bank accounts

If Rep. Liz Cheney thought the “strange new respect” she garnered from the left-wing media over the last several months would be long-lasting, she’s learning quickly that’s not the case. Apparently, simply being anti-Trump doesn’t mean much if you choose to not toe the line on every single issue. With that said, I regret to inform all of you that the honeymoon is over. Who could have possibly foreseen this except everyone paying attention?

Yesterday, Peter Doocy asked Jen Psaki why President Biden wasn’t pressing for more information on the Wuhan lab leak theory. “We have repeatedly called for the WHO to support an expert-driven evaluation of the pandemic’s origins,” Psaki replied. That answer was very troubling, I observed in our story on Psaki’s response. Is there an American investigation still ongoing into the question from the Biden team, I asked? Because it doesn’t sound like it, from what Psaki was saying — and because we surely can’t trust anything that WHO concludes on the matter, given their prior actions. Turns out that was a good question to ask. Because now there are reports
