One of the top guardians of American freedoms just entered the fight against the Obama administration’s insane excesses in the name of “trans rights.”
The Department of Health and Human Services recently issued rules telling doctors they can’t decline to perform gender-reassignment surgery on kids if it’s recommended by a “mental health professional.” Refusal could be a career-ender.
How crazy is the rule? Well, for starters, most trans teens identify differently later in life — yet reassignment surgery is often irreversible, and even less-radical procedures can be harmful, as HHS’ own medical experts note.
The idea to seemingly eliminate the bias of which they have been accused.
Who would have thought that a tiny section on Facebook’s homepage would cause so much controversy?
The “Trending” feature, where a few popular news topics are listed on the social network’s homepage, is getting a makeover,Facebook said on Friday. Most notably, Facebook’s hot topics will no longer appear next to descriptions that are written by humans.
Instead, Facebook will show each subject—usually a celebrity’s latest scandal or a current event—next to the number of people discussing it on the service. Human editors will no longer play a role in hand-picking the topics featured other than for verifying quality.
These changes follow a controversy earlier this summer when tech news site Gizmodo published a report alleging that the Facebook’s Trending section was biased against conservative news outlets. According Gizmodo’s report, which cite accounts from anonymous former contract employees who worked on the Trending section, these employees were instructed to ignore topics that conservative users clicked on by keeping them out of the list.

Stanford University has deleted a page warning women about the dangers of alcohol after critics complained the page was sexist and patronizing, and constituted “victim-blaming” because it linked drinking to sexual assault.
The page, titled “Female Bodies and Alcohol,” was mostly a straightforward description of the effects alcohol has on women, and in particular, how the effects differ from those alcohol has on men.
“A woman will get drunk faster than a man consuming the same amount of alcohol,” the guide warns. The rate of inebriation holds true even at the same body weight, it notes, because men have a higher amount of water in their bodies (which dilutes alcohol more) and have higher levels of the enzyme that metabolizes alcohol. The guide also says that women develop alcohol-related organ damage (such as liver cirrhosis) more easily than men.
Black Disciples also suspected in shooting last week of Chicago rapper, King Yella. So where is the Black Lives Matter effort to stop gang violence?
Two brothers have been charged for the fatal shooting of the cousin of NBA star Dwyane Wade, police said.
Darwin Sorells, 26, and Derren Sorells, 22, were charged for the death of Nykea Aldridge, the Chicago Police Department announced on Twitter.
Police said the older brother served time behind bars for a gun charge and is on parole; the younger brother is also on parole, and is a “documented member” of the Gangster Disciples gang.
Wade’s first cousin, Nykea Aldridge, was the unintended victim of gunfire Friday as she pushed her 3-week-old baby girl on a stroller in Chicago’s south side, police said.
Still summer in Chicago…

Three people were killed and at least 23 others have been wounded in shootings since Saturday afternoon, officials said.
The first fatal shooting happened at about 12:15 p.m. in the city’s Park Manor neighborhood on the South Side.
Three people were shot in the 7100 block of South Rhodes Avenue after an argument broke out between them and two other men. One of the men they were arguing with pulled out a gun and began firing.
A boy, 17, was shot in the thigh and taken to Stroger Hospital where he was listed in good condition. A 19-year-old man suffered a wound to the head and was taken in critical condition to Northwestern Memorial Hospital. The third victim, a 34-year-old man, drove himself to Provident Hospital of Cook County with a gunshot wound to the neck. His condition was stabilized, police said.
Hmm, wonder what the real backstory is…
Iran has arrested a member of the negotiating team that reached a landmark nuclear deal with world powers on suspicion of spying, a judiciary spokesman said on Sunday.
The suspect was released on bail after a few days in jail but is still under investigation, Gholamhossein Mohseni Ejei said at a weekly news conference, calling the unidentified individual a “spy who had infiltrated the nuclear team,” state media reported.
The deal that President Hassan Rouhani struck last year has given Iran relief from most international sanctions in return for curbing its nuclear program, but it is opposed by hardliners who see it as a capitulation to the United States.

Last month the Democratic National Committee announced a $32 million fundraising haul, suggesting this was evidence of “energy and excitement” for Hillary Clinton’s nomination for the White House .
However , said Bloomberg , the influx of money also owed in part to an “unprecedented workaround of political spending limits that lets the party tap into millions of dollars more from Clinton’s wealthiest donors.”
At least $7.3 million of the DNC’s July total originated with payments from hundreds of major donors who had already contributed the maximum $33,400 to the national committee, a review of Federal Election Commission filings shows, said Bloomberg.
The contributions, many of which were made months earlier, were first bundled by the Hillary Victory Fund and then transferred to the state Democratic parties, which “effectively stripped the donors’ names and sent the money to the DNC as a lump sum.”said the report.
Another first for the Obama regime.
A $400 million cash delivery to Iran to repay a decades-old arbitration claim may be unprecedented in recent U.S. history, according to legal experts and diplomatic historians, raising further questions about a payment timed to help free four American prisoners in Iran.
The money was sent to Iran on Jan. 17, the same day Iran agreed to release the prisoners. The Obama administration claimed for months the events were separate, but recently acknowledged the cash was used as leverage until the Americans were allowed to leave Iran. Only then, did the U.S. allow a plane with euros, Swiss francs and other foreign currency loaded on pallets to take off in the other direction for Tehran.
“There’s actually not anything particularly unusual about the mechanism for this transaction,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said this week of the initial cash payment.
But diplomatic historians and lawyers with expertise in international arbitration struggled to find any similar examples.
Asked to recall a similar payment of the U.S. using cash or hard money to settle an international dispute, the office of the State Department historian couldn’t provide an example.
The acknowledgement that the prisoners and the payment were linked, and the unusual cash delivery, have fueled Republican claims that a “ransom” was paid. At a news conference this month, President Barack Obama said cash was used because the U.S. and Iran don’t have a banking relationship after years of U.S. sanctions on Iran, making a check or wire transfer impossible.
The $400 million was the principal owed by the U.S. on a 1970s Iranian account for buying U.S. military equipment. After Iran’s 1979 overthrow of the U.S.-backed shah and the U.S. Embassy hostage crisis in Tehran, the weapons were never delivered. Iran has wanted the money back plus interest ever since. Seven months ago, two sides put the matter to rest with a $1.7 billion settlement.
Barr is actually a frequent reader of our site.
Jewish actress/comedian Roseanne Barr repeatedly slammed Hillary Clinton on Twitter, saying Clinton “will be the absolute death of Israel.”
Barr posted numerous inflammatory remarks, videos and articles about the Democratic presidential nominee this week, including one that refers to her as “Hitlery Clinton” and another that labels her “anti-Semitic Hillary.”
On Friday alone, Barr tweeted and re-tweeted several posts about Clinton and her aide Huma Abedin, whom Barr labeled “a filthy nazi whore.” A Muslim American, Abedin is married to former Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner, is Jewish.
Hey, Kaepernick, you’re not the only one with an opinion. Here… have some oppression. And while you’re at it, why don’t you just stay on the bench?
Via Daily Mail:
Furious San Francisco 49ers fans have started burning Colin Kaepernick jerseys after he refused to stand for the national anthem as part of a racial protest.
One fan even played The Star-Spangled Banner as he set light to the Number 7 shirt, watching with his hand on his chest as it burned.
Another, who uploaded a video to Instagram under the handle Nate3914, called the $19 million-per-year athlete an ‘ignorant son of a b****.’
He added: ‘People die every single day defending that flag you refuse to stand for and I won’t stand for that.’
‘This jersey was the worst $50 investment I have ever had … you should never play in the NFL again, move to Canada.’
Thousands of football fans also took to Twitter in order to shout down Kaepernick’s protests, accusing him of being unpatriotic, spoiled, and childish.
Tomi Lahren, of news site The Blaze, tweeted saying: ‘If this country disgusts you so much. Leave. Others would die to be in your spot you cocky child.’

Children from a German school in Buenos Aires wearing swastika armbands and fake Hitler moustaches attacked pupils from a Jewish school in a resort where several Nazi war criminals lived for decades after the Second World War, including Dr Josef Mengele, Auschwitz’s “Angel of Death”.
The incident drew swift condemnation for the pupils and the parents who were accompanying them during the school’s end-of-course trip to San Carlos de Bariloche, in the Andes.
The town became a haven for fleeing Nazis who were welcomed by the sympathetic Peronist regime.
According to witnesses, pupils from the Lanús German School arrived at a party in a nightclub dressed as Nazis.
“Some of them were in leathers with swastikas painted on their chests and backs,” Dan, one of the students who was attacked, told Argentina’s TN television channel.
Same old song and dance. Update to this previous story.
A spokeswoman for the Mississippi Department of Corrections says the man arrested in the killing of two nuns in Mississippi has a criminal record and is currently on probation.
Grace Simmons Fisher says Rodney Earl Sanders was convicted of a felony DUI in Attala County and sentenced on Feb. 23, 2015.
He was later released from prison and is on probation.
Fisher says Sanders was also convicted of armed robbery in Holmes County and served six years. He was sentenced Oct. 17, 1986 for that conviction.
Sanders was arrested late Friday in the deaths of two nuns whose bodies were found Thursday in their Mississippi home.
Holmes County Sheriff Willie March says Sanders has confessed to the killings during interrogation but gave no reason for the crimes.
March says he’s been briefed by police from Durant, the town where the killings occurred, as well as Mississippi Bureau of Investigation officials who took part in the interrogation.
WINSLOW TWP., N.J. (WPVI) — A little boy in New Jersey is a huge fan of men and women in uniform and he wanted them to know it.
5-year-old William Evertz Jr. delivered lunch to police officers at Winslow Township Wednesday.
He saved up his allowance and helped treat the officers to Subway sandwiches.
He said he wanted the officers to eat healthy.
And as an unexpected bonus, he was given a special police department shirt and other gifts.
William’s mom says this was all the little boy’s idea because he simply loves police officers.
“Williams’s actions are remarkable for anyone, let alone a 5 year old. Winslow Twp PD commends William for his acts of kindness and his parents for raising such a great kid,” the Winslow Police Department wrote on their Facebook page.
A series of newly released State Department emails obtained by ABC News offers fresh insight on direct contact between the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton’s inner circle while she was Secretary of State.
The emails -– released as part of a public records lawsuit by conservative group Citizens United and shared exclusively with ABC — reveal what the group claims is new evidence Foundation allies received special treatment. [Read the emails here.]
In one December 2010 email chain with Clinton’s closest aide Huma Abedin, then-top Clinton Foundation official Doug Band offers names for a State Department lunch with Chinese President Hu Jintao scheduled for January 2011.
On the list were three executives from organizations that have donated millions to the Clinton Foundation: Bob McCann, the then-president of wealth management at UBS; Dr. Judith Rodin, the president of the Rockefeller Foundation; and Hikmet Ersek, the CEO of Western Union.
According to the Foundation website, the UBS Wealth Management USA has contributed between $500,001 and $1 million to the Foundation; the Rockefeller Foundation has given between $10 million and $25 million, while Western Union and its foundation has contributed between $1 million and $5 million.
Nearly two weeks later, Band followed up on email, specifically requesting Rodin be seated at Vice President Joe Biden’s table. “I’ll ask,” Abedin replied.
More of a man than Black Lives Matter loving Kaepernick could hope to be.
As Twitchy reported, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the national anthem prior to the start of his team’s preseason game against the Green Bay Packers, explaining that he was “not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people and people of color.”
Kaepernick knew his show of non-patriotism would be controversial, but said that the issues he was addressing were “bigger than football.”
To be honest, just about everything is bigger than football, and Nick Short scored big-time Saturday with his tweet of a Marine standing taller than the 6-foot-4 Kaepernick ever could.
The man in the photo is Marine Corps Sgt. Zachary Stinson, pictured with members of the 2012 Olympic men’s basketball team. He lost both of his legs to an IED in Afghanistan in 2010.
The 44-year-old Tennessee man who killed a police officer Thursday penned a letter in which he blamed cops — and his own family — for his “misfortune.”
Brian Keith Stalans fatally shot Maryville Police Officer Kenny Moats, 32, in the neck after police responded to a domestic violence call at his father’s Alcoa home around 3:30 p.m.
Police had been called to the home of Stalans’ unidentified father earlier in the day in regards to an assault in-progress, but once cops showed up there was no cause for arrest.
“The father did not want to place charges against his son, and we had no reason without any sign of physical injury to take him into custody,” Blount County Sheriff James Berrong said.
Lil’ Kim is feeling insecure again…
SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea on Saturday threatened to aim fire at the lighting equipment used by “provocative” American and South Korean troops at a truce village inside the Demilitarized Zone that divides the two Koreas.
The North’s Korean People’s Army accused U.S. and South Korean soldiers of “deliberate provocations” by aiming their lights at North Korean guard posts at Panmunjom since Friday evening.
The KPA said in a statement that the soldiers’ actions have seriously threatened the safety of North Korean troops and disrupted their normal monitoring activities. It said the activities have further raised the anger of North Korean soldiers at a time when the Korean Peninsula has reached the “brink of war” due to last Monday’s start of annual joint military drills between the U.S. and South Korea that Pyongyang says are an invasion rehearsal.
Meanwhile MSM has pretty much ignored the Soros docs release.
Via Daily Caller:
DCLeaks, a website that releases information on powerful political figures, has had part of its website taken offline after releasing a cache of documents on billionaire donor George Soros. The @DCLeaks Twitter account has also been suspended from Twitter for reasons unknown.
The website had previously released 2,500 internal Open Society Foundation (OSF) documents in order to “shed light on one of the most influential networks operating worldwide.” OSF is one of Soros’ networks of organizations.
The leaked documents had resulted in several damaging reports about the organization. OSF had previously confirmed that the documents were legitimate.
