December 31, as if to add an exclamation point to the last day of the year, in lieu of manning up and coming up with an Obama doctrine that doesn’t include denial, the president named Amanda Simpson as an appointee to Department of Commerce.
And the freak show known as the Obama administration just keeps rolling along. Simpson is one of the first, if not the first Transgendered appointees to the federal government.
Apparently, her activism were the only credentials necessary for her appointment as Simpson has served on the Board of Directors for Out & Equal and NCTE (a social justice group. Again, here is the Soros connection: NCTE, like the Center for American Progress, is funded by the Open Society Institute of billionaire George Soros.) NCTE received $50,000 from the Open Society Institute in 2007. The Soros group gave $70,000 to the Transgender Law Center in San Francisco in the same year.
Simpson has done a stint on the board of Wingspan, the Southern Arizona Gender Alliance, the Southern Arizona ACLU and the Arizona Human Rights Fund (now Equality Arizona). Mitchell, who is now Amanda, will fit in nicely Kevin Jennings and the other cast members of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, or Kabuki Theater. I suppose that is hope and change Obama was talking about. In passing, it must be noted Simpson has some experience in the aerospace industry and was a test pilot holding degrees in physics, engineering and business administration, though I am sure that is not what led her to be noticed by this administration.
The theater of the absurd just never seems to end.
