Texas Judge Issues Injunction against
Investigations of Parents of Transgender Children

Original Article

A Texas judge on Friday blocked the state’s Department of Family and Protective Services from conducting investigations of parents of transgender children for potential child abuse. District judge Amy Clark Meachum wrote in her ruling that a lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union and Lambda Legal against the DFPS holds a “substantial likelihood” of success. The groups filed a lawsuit after Texas governor Greg Abbott in February ordered the DFPS to conduct investigations of parents of transgender children. Abbott announced the order following a legal opinion by state attorney general Ken Paxton, declaring the use of sex-change procedures and prescription of puberty blockers to children as “child abuse.”

FTA: "The ACLU and Lamda Legal accused Abbott and the DFPS of violating the rights of transgender children." Investigating adults for child abuse violates the rights of the children that may have been abused. Chew on a that for a second. Next up, arresting child molesters violates the rights of molested children. Take the media spin machine out from between these issues and the voting American parents and we will sweep all 50 states.

There is no such thing as a 'transgender child'. There are kids who are confused by the CRT- like gender ideology that is being pushed in the some schools & online. There are also mothers who seem to have Munchausen syndrome and who have been seeking attention & sympathy using the various illnesses of their child as a ploy. Too often these mothers promote (for publicity) & encourage their child to cross dress, change a male name to a female name etc. That is child abuse - period. If the child is 16 years old and only recently began to call herself trans - the change is likely from the grooming done in the government schools and yes, even private schools. Child abuse again - but likely not the parents fault. In fact, too often it is counselor or a teacher who is encouraging the child to 'go trans'. The colleges of education have for the last 40 years been swamps of Socialism, Leftism, radical feminism & various sorts of perversions.

With this twisted logic, no adults can ever been investigated for Münchausen Syndrome by Proxy, either. In fact, some of these transgender cases are probably a type of MS by Proxy.

Sorry Judge, you do not have any authority to tell the Executive Officer of a State what he can and can not do. Impeach, Remove, Take away law license, put in PRISON.

Biden Nat-Sec Adviser Says Putin ‘Frustrated’
over Lack of Military Progress
3 replies
Posted by Dreadnought 3/13/2022 1:01:30 PM Post Reply
White House national-security adviser Jake Sullivan said Russian president Vladimir Putin is “frustrated” by slow progress in the invasion of Ukraine, in interviews with multiple outlets on Sunday. The comments came after a Russian missile strike on a Ukrainian military training base less than 15 miles from Poland, in which at least 35 people were killed. Sullivan was also asked to respond on air on CNN to reports that an American journalist was killed while covering the conflict. (The reports were subsequently confirmed and the journalist identified as Brent Renaud, a 50-year-old documentary filmmaker who has worked for the New York Times, Vice, and numerous other outlets.)

Democrats have finally fouled things up so badly that even a critical part of their voting base is leaving the building. A recent poll reveals that support for the party among minority voters has taken a significant dive over the past year, and if this trend continues, it could have ramifications even beyond the upcoming midterm elections. The Wall Street Journal released the results of a poll on Friday analyzing American attitudes towards President Joe Biden’s performance in office, among other issues. But one result that will almost assuredly be ignored by the activist media is the reality that Democrats are faring horribly with minority voters, when compared to their typical performance.

Earlier today Steve noted a Wall Street Journal poll that contains good news for Republicans and bad news for Democrats. There is an additional feature of that poll that deserves notice, as highlighted in the Journal’s article about it: The survey also found Republicans making gains among minority groups. By 9 percentage points, Hispanic voters in the new poll said they would back a Republican candidate for Congress over a Democrat. The two parties had been tied among Hispanic voters in the Journal’s survey in November. Democratic margins also eroded among Black voters, who favored a Democrat for Congress by 35 percentage points in the new survey, down from 56 points in November.

President Biden did not receive a game-changing approval bounce after the State of the Union address (SOTU), as his approval rating remains underwater by double digits, a Wall Street Journal survey released Friday found. The survey, conducted by Impact Research and Fabrizio, Lee & Associates after Biden’s SOTU address, found 57 percent disapproving of Biden’s job performance, compared to 42 percent who approved — a net negative of -15 percent. WSJ said these figures come “despite favorable marks for the president’s response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine and a recent State of the Union speech, which provided him an opportunity to directly speak to millions of Americans.”

Texas clinics’ lawsuit over abortion
ban ‘effectively over’

Austin, Texas -- The Texas Supreme Court on Friday dealt essentially a final blow to abortion clinics’ best hopes of stopping a restrictive law that has sharply curtailed the number of abortions in the state since September and will now fully stay in place for the foreseeable future. The ruling by the all-Republican court was not unexpected, but it slammed the door on what little path forward the U.S. Supreme Court had allowed Texas clinics after having twice declined to stop a ban on abortions after roughly six weeks of pregnancy. It spells the coming end to a federal lawsuit that abortion clinics filed

On the rainy morning of March 28, 2020, President Trump addressed a phalanx of journalists outside the White House following a call with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. “There’s a possibility that sometime today, we’ll do a quarantine — short-term, two weeks — of New York, probably New Jersey, and certain parts of Connecticut,” he said while clutching his umbrella. “This would be an enforceable quarantine. You know, I’d rather not do it, but we may need it.” Hours later, Cuomo was asked during his daily press conference about Trump’s comments. “From a medical point of view, I don’t know what you’d be accomplishing,” he offered with a shrug.

You know you’re in trouble when your pitch comes up as a no-sale even among your friends. The efforts by Joe Biden and Jen Psaki today to blame Vladimir Putin for inflation and rapidly rising fuel prices failed to convince Barack Obama’s auto-bailout czar. Steve Rattner offered a single tweet that punctured this White House buck-passing narrative, but it was enough: Rattner makes a point that I raised earlier in my analysis of the CPI index report this morning. The invasion of Ukraine began on February 24th, which at most left five days in the month where the war might have impacted consumer prices. I say might

House Democrats are holding a retreat in Philadelphia today, trying to come to an agreement on how best to sell themselves to voters in the coming midterm election. NBC News reports that rather than uniting Democrats behind a common plan, the meeting seemed to emphasize their disagreements. Progressives think their best hope is to pass the Franken-BBB bill so they’ll have something to run on. Moderates think they just need to stop talking like preachy progressives. Asked whether Democrats need to pass a Build Back Better-like bill to keep the majority, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, D-N.Y., the chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, or DCCC, replied: “No.”…

Scandal-plagued activist organization Human Rights Campaign has said “no thanks” to Disney’s offer of a donation over Florida’s new education bill falsely smeared as the “don’t say gay” bill by leftist critics. After suffering a coordinated attack for not speaking up sufficiently to appease left-wing activists upset over Florida’s new law, Disney offered to donate to Human Rights Campaign. But on Wednesday, HRC said it would not be accepting the donation announced by Disney CEO Bob Chapek during Wednesday’s shareholder’s meeting.

The Senate passed a $1.5 trillion funding bill Thursday night to keep the government running through September and bolster both humanitarian and military efforts in Ukraine. The legislation will head to President Joe Biden for his signature. The House passed it on Wednesday. The Senate approved the funding bill in a 68-31 vote. Congress had to approve a spending bill by Friday to prevent a government shutdown. Lapses in funding can lead to furloughs of federal workers, hinder the economy and force the government to scale back services. Lawmakers passed a full-year spending bill after keeping the lights on for months through temporary continuing resolutions

On Wednesday, Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida met with Disney CEO Bob Chapek over the phone after the latter requested a meeting to discuss the Parental Rights in Education bill that recently passed the Florida legislature. The media and the left at large have been hyperventilating over it because it dares to stop teachers from discussing “gender ideology” and sexuality with small children. Perhaps Disney, given its massive investment in the state, believed it could bend DeSantis to its will on the bill and get him to veto the legislation? Whatever the goal was, it didn’t go as planned for the mega-corporation. DeSantis refused to change his position,

The year 2022 is shaping up to be a good year for the electoral prospects of the loyal opposition. Two years after losing the presidency — and then watching helplessly as Donald Trump’s petulance poisoned the Republican effort to win in Georgia and keep control of the Senate — the GOP is suddenly poised for a comeback in Congress. Inflation and rising gas prices, frustration with liberal political leaders who clung to COVID-19 restrictions well past their expiration date, and concerns about how the administration is handling the twin threats of Russia and China (to say nothing

Democrats have got nothing to run on for re-election. And that’s eating at the politicians who’ve been casting about for a catchy slogan that would fit on a bumper sticker and sweep the country. Originally, the Biden people thought that “Build Back Better” would carry them to victory. But it’s become apparent that BBB is the punchline to a joke and wouldn’t be useful. Some Democrats hit upon the brilliant slogan “Democrats Deliver!” but the White House polled the tagline and found it came in near the bottom of other suggestions. Given what Democrats have “accomplished” so far, Republicans could easily make a mockery of that slogan. “Deliver what?” they might counter.
