The Bathroom Kerfuffle Over Transgendered Access Continues To Heat Up. Will The Sauna Cook Obama ?

While opportunistic peepers are wasting no time taking advantage of poorly thought out policies that turn bathrooms and changing rooms, into little more than strip clubs without poles or tipping.

On Monday, Lisa Stickles went to a Ross Dress For Less department store in Mesquite, Texas, where she claims management allowed a man, who made no attempt to appear to be a woman, into the women’s fitting room. I was in the dressing room, when we heard a man’s voice,” said Stickles. The manager “told me that if I felt uncomfortable in the dressing room with him there… I’d have to wait until he’s finished.” Upsetting Stickles further, the man who walked out of the fitting room “was in no way dressed as a woman,” she said. “He had on jeans, a t-shirt, 5 o’clock shadow, very deep voice. He was a man.” — The Daily Wire

Conservatives are getting their dander up and digging in their heels in opposition to the changes. Rep. Steve King (Iowa-R), called for acts of civil disobedience in response to Obama’s policy.

We should call for civil disobedience here,” King told 1040 WHO radio host Simon Conway, of Des Moines, Iowa, Tuesday. “And there’s no reason for us to follow an unconstitutional edict from the president, who is on his way out the door.” King, one of several Republicans who wants to hold hearings on the directive, believes the mandate from the Obama administration is an executive overreach. The rule does not carry with it the force of law, but does assert that Title IX of the Education Act of 1972 includes transgender people in its ban on discrimination based on sex. — The Blaze

Meanwhile the left cranks up the ridiculous machine . You have Feminist/Theologian, Katie Grimes proclaiming Jesus was actually Transgendered. Funny how the left discovers scripture only when it advances their cause other times they discard it all together or worse use it to smear people’s character. Oddly enough, there is a biblical character that does much the same

Here is what I want to say to Christians for whom the fact that “transgender people are clearly happier and healthier and more fully alive when they are allowed to be transgender” is not a good enough reason to accept transgender people into their homes, workplaces, schools, and bathrooms: Since Jesus had no human biological father, and since God, his heavenly Father, lacks a body, then Jesus was a man who likely had no Y chromosome. Would this not make Jesus more like a transgender person than a cis-gender one.

Not going to toss her blog a link. Anyone who can start with encouraging people to self mutilation should gain no benefit from public stupidity.


Bill De Blasio , Jane Sanders, and Barack Obama Democrats In Action.

One of my favorite movies is, Back To School starring Rodney Dangerfield. There’s a great scene where Rodney is telling a naïve professor he left out the bribes needed to get his factory built. Well Mayor of New York Bill De Blasio certainly seems to get full marks in the collecting graft class.

As The Post first reported, the seller, Joseph Dussich, tried for nearly a decade to get the city to buy his Mint-X bags, which he says deter rats and squirrels. But he got the brush-off — until he contributed $100,000 to the Campaign for One New York, a slush fund Mayor Bill de Blasio created. Presto, Dussich got a meeting with the mayor, a trial contract for $15,000, and then, through a middleman, a deal worth nearly $6 million.The sequence is shocking — and consistent with that of so many large donations under scrutiny. — NY Post

At least with De Blasio it’s only blatant corruption. Evidence hasn’t yet surfaced the city is about to go down the toilet, unlike the university Jane Sanders, spouse of Bernie Sanders is.

On Monday, Burlington College in Vermont announced it would close May 27 because of  “the crushing weight of the debt” Bernie Sanders’ wife, Jane O’Meara Sanders, who served as the president of Burlington College, incurred when she took out $10 million in loans on behalf of the college which it couldn’t repay. Don’t worry about Jane Sanders, though, she received a $200,000 severance package merely one year after she paved the path for the college’s ruin.

Hope she doesn’t manage the family finances, then again she did get her cash. Speaking of misdirecting funds. President Obama is at it again

The Obama administration wants to make sure Utica, New York’s young refugees aren’t without a job, so he’s spending millions to make sure it doesn’t happen. “Access to a job in the summer and beyond can make all the difference to a young person – especially those who don’t have access to many resources and opportunities,” President Obama said of his new Summer Opportunity Project. The project spends a total of $21 million on a variety of programs in 11 communities nationwide with the focus of helping young people find summer work, and permanent part-time jobs, the White House and U.S. Department of Labor announced Monday. At least $2 million of the total will be set aside to help 400 refugee students in Utica, New York get to work through the New Americans Career Pathways Project, the Utica Observer-Dispatch reports.
