EPA Chief

The hackiest of the hack jobs

Via Free Beacon:

The Environmental Protection Agency is looking to hire 15 “Diversity and Inclusion Specialists,” each of whom will make $100,000 or more per year.

The agency will hire employees to set up diversity and inclusion “advisory bodies” across the country, according to a government job posting.

“Earth Day is every day at EPA!” the agency said. “At EPA, you can protect human health and the environment of all Americans, and you’ll discover that EPA is one great place to work!”

“We offer great benefits and work flexibilities, and our diverse workforce connects to more than just a career—we share a common passion to promote a cleaner, healthier environment,” the EPA said.

The salary range for Diversity and Inclusion Specialists is between $99,785 and $146,570 per year. If all 15 positions are filled, the hires would cost taxpayers between $1,496,775 and $2,198,550 each year.

All Hail Diversity! Obama Regime Wants To Designate More LGBTQ Landmarks…


Via PJ Media:

The federal government hopes to recognize more landmarks connected with the LGBTQ community, according to National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis.

Jarvis joined Interior Secretary Sally Jewell on a conference call to discuss the release of the National Park Foundation’s “LGBTQ America: A Theme Study of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer History.”

On June 24, President Obama recognized the Stonewall National Monument as the country’s first monument to honor the history of the LGBTQ community in American and the Henry Gerber House in Chicago was named a National Historic Landmark. Jarvis said there are more landmark designations planned in the future.

“This theme study exercise paved the way even before it was fully completed to help add several other sites to the landmarks program and to the National Register of Historic Places, and the better news is that there is more to come,” Jarvis said on the conference call.

“This is just the beginning of what we hope will be a groundswell effort for the public to further increase the number of LGBTQ identified sites and interpretations of LGBTQ people and related events at existing historical sites across the country,” he added.

Jewell said the study marked the “first time ever” that the federal government has documented the history, documents, people and events associated with the LGBTQ community.

“For far too long the struggles and contributions of the LGBTQ community have been ignored in the traditional narratives of our nation’s history. The impact of this study will result in an important step forward in reversing the underrepresentation of stories and places associated with the LBGTQ community and the complex and diverse stories of America,” she said.

DOJ: Criminal Background Checks, Citizenship Requirements Barriers To Police-Force Diversity…


How racist is it to believe that background checks are preventing minorities from getting jobs? But those that actually have background check problems or aren’t even citizens, DOJ wants them to have guns and be police…

Via CNS News:

The Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) released a comprehensive report Wednesday examining law enforcement hiring, recruitment, and retention policies with the aim of increasing diversity in police departments.

The report–“Advancing Diversity in Law Enforcement”–highlighted barriers to diversity within police departments, such as “the use of criminal background checks” which the researchers found “is likely to disproportionately impact racial minority applicants.”

The report also found that U.S. citizenship requirements “may prevent a considerable number of racial and ethnic minorities – many of whom have valuable foreign language skills – from being hired by law enforcement agencies.”

The report opened with an analysis of EEOC labor force data, which “found that African-American, Latino, and Asian-American police officers were underrepresented relative to the local area population in a significant number of the departments analyzed. Using a statistical test of underrepresentation, the researchers found that within their sample, African Americans were underrepresented in 60 percent of the departments, Latinos were underrepresented in 41 percent, and Asian Americans were underrepresented in 31 percent.”

The use of criminal background checks, the report noted,

“Researchers and practitioners,” the report said, “have also highlighted that the use of criminal background checks, which are a regular part of the screening process for many agencies, is likely to disproportionately impact racial minority applicants since, for a variety of reasons, individuals from those communities are more likely to have contact with the criminal justice system.

“While law enforcement agencies are undeniably justified in carefully vetting and investigating potential hires,” the report said, “excluding applicants regardless of the nature of the underlying offense, or how much time has passed since an offense occurred, or without any consideration of whether the candidate has changed in the intervening period, can be a significant – and unwarranted – barrier.”

The report also argued that residency and citizenship requirements can limit underrepresented communities’ presence in law enforcement.

Obama Orders Diversity Measures For National Security Agencies


Oh goodie. Fundamental transformation…

WASHINGTON — President Obama has ordered national security agencies to do more to recruit, hire and retain qualified minority employees, as data show that defense, intelligence and homeland security agencies lag behind the rest of the federal workforce.

“Our greatest asset in protecting the homeland and advancing our interests abroad is the talent and diversity of our national security workforce,” Obama said in presidential memorandum issued Wednesday.

He directed agencies to collect more data on their employment and hiring practices, conduct exit interviews of employees leaving an agency, and institute mandatory training on unconscious bias for management positions.

Air Force Announces It Will Mandate Diversity Quotas In Candidate Pools For Key Positions


Insanity taking over the military, forget ‘best person for the job’.

Via Daily Caller:

The Air Force announced a new set of 13 inclusion initiatives Friday with the goal of ensuring the force isn’t as white, male and heterosexual as it is now.

Air Force officials are intent on building upon a foundation of nine initiatives from 2015, in order to boost diversity.

Those nine initiatives weren’t enough to make the Air Force as diverse as desired, which is why it is taking more intensive steps in 2016.

The first new initiative mandates that at least one diverse candidate will have to be in the running for important developmental positions like aide-de camp, senior enlisted advisor and executive officer, among other roles.

All Hail Diversity! Governor Moonbeam Signs California Unisex Restrooms Single-Stall Law…


In California the whole family can share the restroom at the same time.

Via Mercury News:

Forget the men’s room and the women’s room. Gender will no longer matter when using single-stall public bathrooms in California.

Gov. Jerry Brown on Thursday signed legislation that will require restrooms for single users to be designated all-gender, California’s latest move to bolster transgender rights even as much of the country moves in the opposite direction.

“California is charting a new course for equality,” said Assemblyman Phil Ting, D-San Francisco. “Restricting access to single-user restrooms by gender defies common sense and disproportionately burdens the LGBT community, women, and parents or caretakers of dependents of the opposite gender.”

In signing Assembly Bill 1732, Brown vindicated activists who have made the right to use bathrooms matching their gender identities a new front in LGBT politics.

California has continued down that path even as elected officials in other states, notably North Carolina, have moved to block transgender people from using the bathroom they are most comfortable using.

“We now have a policy that gives everyone greater privacy and safety in public restrooms. It — and not hateful laws in North Carolina, Mississippi and elsewhere — should be the model for the nation,” Equality California Executive Director Rick Zbur said in a statement.

Tim Burton Blasted For Being Anti-PC Diversity In His Films


I really am not a fan of his movies. But I’m right with him on this.

Via Daily Mail:

Top director Tim Burton caused a Twitter storm after trying to explain why his latest film – Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – has a predominately white cast.

The filmmaker sparked a furious backlash when he said non-white actors only started appearing in shows like The Brady Bunch because producers wanted to be more ‘politically correct’.

‘Nowadays, people are talking about it more, (but) things either call for things, or they don’t,’ he told Bustle.

‘I remember back when I was a child watching The Brady Bunch and they started to get all politically correct, like, OK, let’s have an Asian child and a black – I used to get more offended by that than just – I grew up watching blaxploitation movies, right?

‘And I said, that’s great. I didn’t go like, OK, there should be more white people in these movies.’
His reasoning angered many on Twitter with one user saying he is ‘one of the many directors who think that for a world to be magical and fantastical it must be white.’

Another said that ‘he isn’t even diverse in casting white actors.’

One tweeter – referring to Burton’s tendency to cast Johnny Depp – joked that there are no black people in his films as ‘Johnny Depp uhm isn’t black.

All Hail Diversity! U.S. Surpasses Syrian Refugee Goal Set By Obama, Expects More Next Year…


Elections have consequences.

Via WaPo:

The United States has admitted 12,500 refugees from war-
ravaged Syria over the past year, surpassing President Obama’s target, and expects to admit even more next year, a State Department official said Tuesday.

The Syrians are among 85,000 refugees from all over the world who have been resettled in the fiscal year that ends late this week, said Ann Richard, the assistant secretary of state for population, refugees and migration. That is up from 70,000 in the previous year. The White House aims to admit 110,000 refugees over the next 12 months.

Though goals are typically set for regions rather than specific countries, Obama last September asked the State Department to admit 10,000 Syrians in response to the humanitarian crisis consuming the country after five years of conflict.

“This administration has been clear it wants more Syrians,” Richard told reporters. “My guidance is we want to bring even more than we brought this year, without having a target.[…]

The Syrians have been resettled in 180 cities and towns across the United States, usually in places with plentiful jobs and low-cost housing. Richard said local officials have expressed interest in accepting Syrians for resettlement.

“Refugees tend to be very successful once they get to the U.S.,” Richard said. “Not in the short term, but definitely in the medium and longer term.”

Celebrate Diversity! ABC’s “Modern Family” To Feature First “Transgender Child” Actor On TV…


How progressive.

LOS ANGELES — This Wednesday’s “Modern Family” will include the first openly transgender child actor on TV.

In the upcoming episode — entitled “A Stereotypical Day” — parents Cameron “Cam” (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) permit their daughter Lily (Aubrey Anderson-Emmons) to have her transgender friend Tom over for a play-date.

Both parents are filled with pride that they have done well in raising an accepting and open-minded child. But that pride quickly diminishes when Lily insults her friend, which they use as a teachable moment.

Lily’s playmate Tom will be played by 8-year-old transgender actor Jackson Millarker.

Modern Family’s “A Stereotypical Day” will air on Wednesday at 9/8c on ABC.

All Hail Diversity: Navy To Hold All-Hands Training, Webinars On New Transgender Policy…


Valuable training next some sailors are ‘detained’ by Iran.

Via Military Com:

As the Pentagon makes changes to allow transgender service members to serve openly, the Navy is holding training to educate all troops on the new policies.

In an all-Navy message published Tuesday, Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Adm. Robert Burke said a three-pronged training approach will equip senior leaders and rank-and-file personnel for the changes.

“This training will emphasize policies and expectations of personal behavior,” the message states.

Beginning Nov. 1, mobile training teams composed of Navy fleet representatives and subject matter expects will be dispatched to deliver face-to-face briefs to senior leaders, including commanding officers, executive officers, command master chiefs, and chiefs of boat.

These sessions will also be open to equal opportunity advisers, ombudsmen and other command-designated representatives who will have a role in training the tenant commands on policies governing transgender troops.

A spokeswoman for Naval Personnel Command, Lt. Jessica Anderson, told Military.com in an email that a commander’s tool kit is being developed to guide training, and that additional information about what these training sessions will include will be available in a future message to the fleet.

“Service members are expected to maintain standards of conduct and treat each other with dignity and respect,” she said. “Training for sailors will be conducted by command triads via mobile training teams or DVD with a facilitation guide if the unit is in a remote area and unable to receive face-to-face training. There will also be webinars for COs to ask questions prior to delivering training to their commands.”

According to the message, DVDs and discussion guides will be mailed to each unit, along with copies of the commander’s tool kit and a Defense Department guide being created to explain policy. The webinars, made available to leadership teams, will be provided after mobile training team visits as an opportunity for subject matter experts to answer any remaining questions before fleet training begins.

All sailors will have completed a training session on the new policies by July 1, 2017, Anderson said. That’s when the services plan to begin accepting transgender recruits for the first time.

Along with permitting transgender troops to serve openly, the military is creating procedures for troops to change their “gender marker” in the administrative Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System, and laying out rules to govern how troops might undergo medical gender transitions while in uniform.

Britsh Police May Allow Muslim Officers To Wear The Burqa In Bid To Boost “Diversity”…


To summarize: ISIS bans the burqa, the Brits to allow it.

Via Mirror:

Police have said they may let Muslim officers wear the Burka as they seek to boost diversity in the force.

Senior officers at West Midlands Police revealed they would discuss allowing the traditional Islamic dress to become part of Muslim female officers’ uniform at a recent meeting.

Chief Constable, David Thompson, said he would look into employing officers who wear the burka as he looks to increase black and minority ethnic (BME) officers in the region to 30 per cent.

Speaking after the meeting last Thursday, the senior officer said: “We would need to consider our own rules and cultural sensitivity.

“Clearly we don’t have any barriers relating to the burka.

“As it stands we have not had any approaches from potential recruits asking to wear the burka, but if such an approach was made it is something we would have to consider.”

Ithaca College Students Want Professors To Teach “Diversity” In Every Class…


Via Campus Reform:

Student journalists at Ithaca College want their professors to incorporate diversity and inclusion into class discussions “in every area of academia.”

In an editorial Wednesday, The Ithacan notes that eight administrators, including the president, have stepped down in the past year under pressure from student protesters, leaving a leadership void that the editors believe must be filled by the faculty.

“The topics of diversity, inclusion, and oppression…took center stage last semester, but they remain areas of discussion many students still do not know much about,” the editors complain. “If students are to become the well-rounded critical thinkers this college wants them to be, it is professors who have the most influence and responsibility to teach them.”

Notably, the editorial contends that “it is no longer enough” for “a small handful” of ethnic studies professors to emphasize social justice in the classroom, saying that approach is insufficient to elicit change on campus and in the world.

Navy Celebrates Diversity! Names Ship After Gay Sexual Predator Harvey Milk


Why should the Navy let the fact that Milk preyed on a 16-year-old boy addicted to drugs get in the way of celebrating diversity?

Via ABC News:

The late gay rights leader Harvey Milk already has schools, streets and parks named in his honor. Soon, a U.S. Navy ship will join the list.

A Navy official said Friday that Navy Secretary Ray Mabus notified Congress earlier this month that a new fleet of replenishment oilers being built in San Diego will be named for Milk and five other civil and human rights icons.

The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because a public announcement is expected in the near future.

More than two decades before he became one of the first openly gay candidates elected to public office, Milk spent four years in the Navy, first as an enlisted man and then as an officer in San Diego.

He was serving on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors when a former political colleague assassinated him and Mayor George Moscone at City Hall in 1978.

The GLBT Historic Task Force of San Diego County and former U.S. Rep. Bob Filner wrote Mabus in 2012 to suggest Milk as a fitting subject for a ship name tribute.

The news that Mabus had granted the request first was reported Thursday by U.S. Naval Institute News.

“All Lives Matter” Remark Gets Student Suspended, Forced To Attend Diversity Workshop

So calling out their racism, and saying everybody matters is racist? Alrighty, now.

Via Daily Caller:

A student government leader at the University of Houston was suspended for 50 days and ordered to attend a diversity seminar after she criticized the Black Lives Matter movement online.

Shortly after the July 7 shooting in Dallas that killed five officers, Rohini Sethi went on Facebook and opined “Forget #BlackLivesMatter; more like AllLivesMatter.” The statement was later deleted, but only after numerous UH students denounced it as incredibly offensive or even hateful.

“Just for her to say, ‘forget Black Lives Matter,’ is a punch in the stomach,” student Nala Hughes told a local press outlet at the time.

Sethi serves as the vice president of UH’s student government association (SGA), and several UH students demanded her immediate removal.
