GOP Rep. Jim Banks hit back after Rachel Levine became the nation's first transgender four-star admiral, calling her a 'man' and a disappointment for 'little girls.' The Indiana Republican's remarks drew pushback. Levine, a Biden appointee, was sworn in as head of US Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, which made her the nation's highest-ranking transgender official.(Snip)'The title of first female four-star official gets taken by a man,' Banks tweeted in response to the news. 'Calling someone that was born and lived as a man for 54 years the first 'female' four-star officer is an insult to every little girl who dreams of breaking glass ceilings


Absolutely right on the money. In times of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. Orwell?

He's male. 1) Doesn't matter if you have your naughty bits snipped or modified, your sex is determined by chromosomes. 2) Gender is a grammatical term, and has nothing to do with a biological definition. 3) Just because someone wants to pretend they are something they are not doesn't mean I have to play along.

One does not know whether to laugh or cry. I was going to say that Levine is the highest ranking mentally ill officer in the military but I remembered that Joe Biden is the CIC. Levine is definitely the ugliest woman to ever wear a uniform. Not even on a remote base like Adak, Alaska or Macmurdo, Antarctica would I be tempted.

Remember when we used to lock up the mentally insane? Now we put them in government offices (in lie-beral Demon-Rat administrations of course), and give them awards and titles of honor (which makes those awards and titles of honor mean absolutely nothing). It's like when they gave a Nobel Prize to Ovomit for the "great accomplishment" of not being George W. Bush. Nobel Prizes lost all value at that point. Rep. Jim Banks is 100% correct!!!

Every cell in the physical body of "Rachel"--the father of several, incidentally--is XY. Not a single XX (female) cell--not one--which means that this individual is unalterably male, as well as mentally ill and deluded. People should point and laugh at this unfortunate creature. Shakespeare's Puck (A Midsummer Night's Dream) was right to say, "What a piece of work is man." The Bard had sexy female characters playing male but not the other way around.

Rachel Levine may have been the best pick for his/her job there ever was (no it wasn't). However, the only thing that Levine will ever be remembered for, even if it does the best job ever, is being a transgender person who wore an unearned military uniform. Levine would do best to leave the fake title and uniform at home.

He was born and lived as a man, and even though he's lost the plumbing for his "former" life, he still has some of the original factory equipment that has to be checked annually for cancer--his prostate. Show me a "woman" with a prostate, and I'll show you a man masquarading as a woman. The knife can't cut out his "Y" chromosomes.

The transgender issue is going to be the undoing of this leftist, intersectional coalition. It's unsustainable because none of it makes any sense, and it's in direct conflict with feminism. And normal, sensible people are looking at this silliness and rejecting it. The collapse is coming.

Levine is a MAN. PERIOD. He aint' got no two XX Chromosomes like I and the rest of my conservative women do. Heck, even non-conservative women and even, now hear me out, even liberal women have XX Chromosomes. Just because Rachel changed his name, grew his hair long, started wearing UGLY women's clothes, speaks falsetto, did some hormone treatments, says he's a woman (okay, whatever floats your boat) and gets that big affirmative action special appointment as an Admiral, don't make him no woman. Yo Rachel baby, you and I can go mano-a-mano (so to speak) as women but baby you got that XY Chromosome thing going. And there ain't not a damn thing you can do to change that. You go Congressman Banks. FINALLY a Republican willing to speak the truth. Now if the other several hundred would follow, we might actually have a chance of saving this Republic.

Dear "Admiral" Levine --- The Almighty hand of God made the decision as to whether you (or anyone else) would be born a male or a female when He permitted your father's X or Y chromosomed sperm to penetrate your mother's egg that was carrying only the X chromosome. That's it. Think no further. Thus ends today's Biology class lesson. After you were born, "Sir", the mischief then began and tricks got played on your psyche and, thus, you became extremely confused. This ends today's Psychology 101 class. You're most welcome!

The Defence Secretary today blamed Donald Trump for the speedy collapse of Afghanistan into the hands of the Taliban. Ben Wallace told MPs that a 2020 deal struck by the Trump administration with the Islamic extremists 'couldn’t have been more helpful to the regime in achieving its victory'. He made the claim as he faced a grilling over the speedy military collapse of Afghanistan, which sparked an emergency evacuation of western forces and diplomats in the summer.(Snip)He denied that Nato soldiers had been militarily defeated but admitted: 'Our resolve was found wanting'. And he said he knew 'the game was up' in July.

Donald Trump Jr. is taking aim at a longtime family foe—he’s hawking a t-shirt that uses a tragic movie-set shooting to mock Alec Baldwin, who famously skewered his father on “Saturday Night Live.” A tee declaring “Guns Don’t Kill People, Alec Baldwin Kills People” is selling for $27.99 on a merchandise site linked to the former president’s namesake son. The reference is to the Thursday slaying of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, who was hit by discharge from a prop gun while working on the Baldwin film “Rust.” Baldwin, the film’s star, was handling the weapon from which the fatal shot was fired. The movie’s director was injured as well.

The NYPD is doing everything in its power to convince its members to receive life-saving COVID vaccine shots as the city’s mandate deadline looms—a cutoff that could send a quarter of the police force home without pay. “We have to prepare as if this is going to go into effect Friday evening and that’s exactly what we’re going to do,” Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said on NY1 Tuesday. “We have vaccines available throughout the city for our members.” Shea said that 72% of the NYPD has gotten at least one vaccination shot.(Snip)Opposition to Mayor de Blasio’s mandate led to a massive protest in lower Manhattan Monday

City workers took to the streets Monday to protest Mayor Bill de Blasio’s vaccine mandate for the entire municipal workforce. At least 20 people were arrested during the protest, a police source said. Days after the mayor announced that all government employees except for jail staff will need to receive a vaccine shot by Friday or be placed on unpaid leave, about 5,000 incensed demonstrators marched over the Brooklyn Bridge to Manhattan. Many carried American flags, chanting, “[Expletive] de Blasio” and “We will not comply!” Some protesters wore NYPD and FDNY shirts, and several hoisted Gadsden “Don’t Tread on Me” flags, while others took to the extreme of wearing yellow stars

What’s more, Mr. Alexander’s “Lets Go Brandon (Extended Version)” was No. 16. The songs were inspired by an NBC sports correspondent

The Shijian-21 satellite was sent aloft on Sunday atop a rocket booster from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center, ostensibly for cleaning “space debris,” according to the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corp, Beijing’s state-run space company. The company stated that the satellite is “tasked with demonstrating technologies to alleviate and neutralize space debris.” The robotic satellite launch followed a suspected recent test of a new hypersonic missile that Chinese officials said was a peaceful space experiment.

The Biden administration is reportedly in talks to appoint Kim Wyman, a Republican secretary of state who challenged former President Trump's false claims of fraud, to lead efforts to protect elections from interference. It would make Wyman, 59, one of the most senior GOP appointments in the administration. And it would propel her into a prominent position working with election officials around the country at a time when much of her own party has sown doubt about voting integrity. Federal officials have spent weeks in talks with Wyman, Washington state's secretary of state, to become the election security lead for the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency

Jim Chilton, whose ranch covers 5.5 miles of the border, was thrilled when the government began replacing the four-strand barbed wire fence with a Trump-style border wall. Five miles were completed by the end of the last administration. But after Mr. Biden’s construction halt, Mr. Chilton now has a half-mile gap, and people are pouring through like a funnel. “Actually, the border danger is far worse than it has ever

President Joe Biden on Monday pushed to get a deal done on his multi-trillion social spending plan before he heads for Europe later this week by repeating his debunked claim it costs nothing and painting the child tax credit as a 'tax cut' for the middle class. 'We need to get this done,' Biden said in remarks at the NJ Transit Meadowlands Maintenance Complex in Kearny, New Jersey.(Snip)'Under my plan, no middle class family will spend more than 7% of their income on childcare,' he said. Then Biden did as he always does when he wants to emphasize a point—he leaned forward to whisper into the microphone

Former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers’ criticism that the Federal Reserve and other central banks are too focused on “woke” social issues reflects a growing concern that policymakers aren’t paying enough attention to inflation. the argument from Mr. Summers, a Democrat, also comes as Senate Republicans are trying to prevent congressional Democrats and President Biden from pressuring the Fed to install regional directors who would devote some of their duties to climate change and racial equity. They describe it as a dangerous case of “mission creep” from the central bank’s traditional role of ensuring maximum employment and price stability. All 12 Republicans on the Senate Banking Committee fired a warning shot

Once upon a time it was simple. Children went to sleep on a diet of bedtime stories that grew out of folklore, depended on magic or were just enchantingly simple: Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella and Goodnight Moon. Not anymore, because these days bedtime is all about getting woke. Take a glance at the shelves of the children's department of any major bookstore. Teach Your Dragon About Diversity, sits next to Daddy & Dada.(Snip)There are books about transgender infants, queer families and dreamers, but the subject that dominates all others, bound up in the pages of child-friendly picture books, is race–that and a dollop of police brutality

Children 18 and under will get a blanket exemption from the administration's new vaccine requirement on international travelers visiting the U.S. that goes into effect Nov. 8th. The administration created the exception due to different rules and availability for vaccines for kids in other countries, officials said Monday. Also getting a carve-out are citizens from 50 countries where less than 10 per cent of people are vaccinated 'due to the lack of availability of vaccines.'(Snip)'Preventing people from getting sick, hospitalized and dying of covid is a top, top priority,' said a senior administration official on a media call.

Furious parents and conservatives have told Barack Obama to apologize to a Loudoun County, Virginia, couple and their daughter who was raped by a skirt-wearing boy in a school bathroom in May, after the former President called the row encircling it 'fake outrage' and a 'phony trumped-up culture wars'. On Monday, juvenile court judge Pamela Brooks ruled that the boy - who has not been named - did force himself on the 15-year-old girl on May 28 in the bathroom at Stone Ridge High School in Leesburg, Virginia. Loudoun County Schools hasn't commented on the verdict. Students walked out of their classrooms on Tuesday in a show of 'solidarity'

It was probably the worst day of Alec Baldwin's life when he accidentally shot and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of the movie "Rust" on Oct. 21. It's a time to feel terrible about a 42-year-old woman with a husband and a young son. Then, CNN's Jake Tapper used it in one of his commentaries to denounce the entire Republican Party for making this tragedy an occasion for jokes. "There's something about our politics right now that is driving people away from our shared humanity."

Our current secretary of the Treasury, Janet Yellen, is busy trying to find a way to tax wealth without calling it taxing wealth. She has eyes on taxing unrealized capital gains. What this means simply is taxing people for money they have not earned or received. That's it in a nutshell. That definition should leave even those who have never had a course in accounting or finance shaken. Not only is Janet Yellen considering this, but the Democrat party is on board as well.

The moderate Democrat who's been frustrating progressives and even her own party leadership over her opposition to parts of Joe Biden's Build Back Better agenda appeared in the Senate chamber yesterday afternoon in a black t-shirt dress and denim combo, surrounded by fellow lawmakers in suits and ties.

President Joe Biden argued Tuesday the United States is “on the right track” under his leadership, during a campaign speech for former Gov. Terry McAuliffe in Virginia. “We’re on the move but we’re on the right track, we’ve got more to do,” Biden boasted during his address, urging Virginians to support McAuliffe for governor.The president ignored Americans struggling with increased inflation, high gas prices, and supply chain shortages, and promoted the free things he wanted to give Americans.He argued Americans were enjoying increased household wealth, more manufacturing, and a high stock market.

MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan supports segregating those who are unvaccinated against the coronavirus and denying them access to basic goods and services. Remember, folks: It’s about public health. It’s definitely not a new-age religious cult whose most zealous adherents believe the path to salvation is through punishing the wicked “unbelievers.” Hasan’s comments in support of isolating the unvaccinated came this week in reference to public remarks made by left-wing luminary Noam Chomsky (he’s still alive, by the way). Chomsky said this week during an interview with Curt Jaimunga that the issue of vaccine mandates — that is, forcing the unvaccinated

Joe Biden is out tonight to speak at the rally for Terry McAuliffe in Virginia. Now, one has to think that McAuliffe is feeling pretty desperate to have Biden out to stump for him. As we previously reported, McAuliffe acknowledged that Biden was not popular in Virginia and that basically they had to work their way around that fact. So he must be just grasping for anything he can having Biden in to speak at this point. I can’t imagine Biden helping him at all. Biden doesn’t have any ability to really draw anyone. He surely doesn’t give an inspiring stump speech.

Authorities in New Mexico say they have recovered a bullet believed to have been fired from the gun held by Alec Baldwin on the "Rust" film set last week. The announcement comes six days after the actor fired a gun that was thought to be safe while rehearsing a scene last Thursday on the set of the Western movie "Rust," killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounding director Joel Souza. Santa Fe County Sheriff Adan Mendoza said a lead projectile, which police consider to be a bullet, was recovered from Souza's shoulder. He said investigators have collected approximately 600 pieces of evidence, including what investigators believe was the gun fired by Baldwin

The Pentagon stated Tuesday that nearly 450 American citizens are still in Afghanistan following August’s U.S. military withdrawal, more than the Biden administration has previously claimed. The latest tally came from Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Colin Kahl, after Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., pointed to what he believed were contradictory or at least "confusing" numbers that the administration has presented since the August 31 withdrawal.

The jailing of the Jan. 6 riot defendants is not just an obvious miscarriage of justice, given the length of time they've spent in detention without trial. It's also turning into something that's full Soviet. Here's the latest from one Judge Amy B. Jackson, who, after denying release at least once to one guy, went ahead and let him out. He's a Buffalo, New York-based defendant named Thomas Sibnick, who's recanted: WASHINGTON — A federal judge reversed her bond decision Tuesday for a Capitol riot defendant accused of robbing a D.C.

Authorities on Wednesday refused to rule out whether Alec Baldwin could face criminal charges after he accidentally shot dead his cinematographer and injured the director on the New Mexico set of his “Rust” film last week. Nearly a week after the shooting, Santa Fe County Sheriff Adan Mendoza acknowledged during a press conference that there was “some complacency” in how weapons were handled on set — and that other live rounds were potentially uncovered amid the investigation.

Jeff Flake to diplomatic posts Tuesday, formalizing their roles in the administration of President Joe Biden, a man they helped put in the White House. Flake and McCain are Arizona Republicans who separately helped send the message to moderates in their party that they could support Biden over then-President Donald Trump. Now, Flake becomes the ambassador to Turkey, a traditional ally at a time when relations have strained in an authoritarian era
