Stop Gender Genocide

Following the death of Carrie Fisher — and the death one day later of her mother, Debbie Reynolds — I ran across an article about Fisher’s 24-year-old daughter, Billie Lourd.

Lourd proudly spoke about her upbringing at the hands of single mom and admitted drug abuser Carrie Fisher. Lourd boasted that her mother “raised me to not think of men and women as different. She raised me without gender. It’s kind of the reason she named me Billie.”

Yet clearly Billie Lourd is a woman, despite Fisher’s attempts to raise her without any gender identification. She looks and dresses as a woman, and she dates men. Lourd believes her upbringing was a success, but if the intent was to raise her as gender neutral, it was a dismal failure. Nature, it appears, was victorious.

In another example of what today can only be described as gender genocide, the National Geographic magazine put on its December cover a picture of a nine-year-old transgender, a boy dressed as a girl with long, bright pink hair.

Inside, the story details the difficulties little children encounter living as transgenders. One of these little kids had been struggling since he/she was five years old.

Another little girl, age nine, is described as a Muslim living in India who wants to be a boy so she can earn money and “get stuff for her family.” Is that a good enough reason to neutralize this child’s sex? Maybe for that family it is.

It’s hard to believe that children as little as five are actually struggling with their gender identity unless they are coerced into such a struggle by the adults around them. Kids that age are still contemplating the mystery of Santa Claus, not their gender identity.

This is gender genocide — the willful destruction of our biological sex. It’s the last frontier for the gay lobby (the sex lobby, it may as well be called) and its quest for ultimate control over our sexual behavior and identity. This is a deeply sinister social engineering that seeks to indoctrinate children into thinking they can define their own gender, regardless of their God-given gender.

Having conquered the battlefield of gay marriage (in 2015 when the Supreme Court redefined marriage to include same-sex marriage) … the sex lobby has turned its sights on transgender rights and gender fluidity. The more victories they achieve, the more absurd their goals become. Gay rights … gay adoption … gay partner benefits … gay marriage … transgender acceptance … same-sex bathrooms … gender fluidity … new pronouns. Just when it seems the end is in sight and they can’t possibly do more damage to our culture, they move the bar further.

Eliminating God From American Life

But at its heart, this is a movement to eliminate God’s natural order from our lives, plain and simple. It is a twisted effort to undermine the biblical underpinnings of our culture and eradicate the sexes.

The Bible says that in the beginning, “God made them male and female.” (Gen. 5:2) Pretty clear and straight forward, though the sex lobby never likes the word “straight” in any context.  This rock-solid fact is the one immovable force that they cannot surmount, so they have come up with ways around it.

One way is to declare, despite what our eyes tell us, that people can be any sex they want. We only need to decide which sex we identify with in our minds — and voila, that’s the sex we are. And, it must follow, we should be allowed to use the bathroom of our choice absolutely anywhere and everywhere in the United States … especially in our taxpayer-funded schools.

Literally, this new battle is being waged in the toilet.

But at least now we’re getting to the meat of the issue. If the sex lobby can change the attitudes of our children about sex, and encourage them to follow every urge that pops up in their pubescent heads, they will have a captive army of young adults to march out into the world and tear down the Judeo-Christian foundation of our nation.

Like lemmings following each other off a cliff only to drown in the sea, our young people obey, just like Billie Lourd and other Hollywood celebrities do. In the process, though, they position themselves as role models for our kids, and there’s the danger.

Miley Cyrus says she is “gender fluid.”

miley cyrus

Miley Cyrus says she is “gender fluid.”

Miley Cyrus, who performed a music video stark naked on a wrecking ball, claims she is “gender fluid.”

“I’m just equal,” she gushed in an interview. “I’m just even. It has nothing to do with any parts of me or how I dress or how I look. It’s literally how I feel.” She had to add those last few sentences because she has female body parts and dresses like a woman, so don’t be fooled if she looks like a woman, she’s really whatever she wants to be at the moment.

Hypocrisy Of Gender Warriors

The hypocrisy of the gender genocide advocates is stunning. If gender doesn’t matter anymore, why did women go berserk when Hillary did not become the first FEMALE president? If Hillary’s not a she but a “ze” — the preferred neutral pronoun of the gender genocide lobby — then there’s no glass ceiling to break, right?

Witness also the hysteria that followed the publication of a Washington Post magazine article just recently that displayed the wrong symbol for womanhood (they used the male symbol with the circle and arrow, instead of the circle and cross for female). Male and female heads were exploding over the mistake — which the Washington Post apologized for abjectly and corrected right away.

But if gender doesn’t matter, then why do the symbols matter?

For that matter, why was it so important to legalize same-sex marriage? If genders don’t matter, or if they are all in our head, what’s the big deal?

The answer is obvious to even the little children who are being used as petri dishes for the sex lobby’s ungodly experiments. There are boys and there are girls. Period. Even the most strident advocates for gender neutrality recognize this physical reality.

Within the past couple of years hundreds, perhaps thousands, of school districts, institutions and municipalities have jumped on the gender-neutral bandwagon and declared that their bathrooms are open for use by any gender. Men may use the women’s room if they’re feeling a little feminine that day, and vice versa.

No doctor’s note is required to show that a sex change operation has been performed. No psychiatric exam is required, either.

What is so shocking is the lack of thoughtful and reasoned examination of the movement. Schools and public places are just lining up to follow the new guidelines like brainless robots programmed to obey. They should be asking, Where’s the science?

Christians Toe The Line

At a time when the Christian community should be standing up to these attempts to pollute biblical truths, some so-called Christian institutions are toeing the line. One Christian school in the Seattle, Wash., area, sent home notices to all parents that it would be hosting a “coming out day” for its gay and transgender students, and that students may now use the restrooms that correspond to their gender identity.

The alternative is to be forced out of business or suffer staggering fines. The Obama Administration ordered every public school in the nation to cater to transgenders in the restrooms or lose their federal funding. One transgender girl in a Maine public school was awarded $75,000 because her school forced her to use a staff restroom. That’s a scary prospect for a school district that needs the money — money, mind you, already paid by parents in the form of taxes that should rightfully come back to the schools with no gender strings attacks.

Jonas Maines, left, and his transgender sister, Nicole Maines, stand outside the Penobscot Judicial Center, Wednesday, June 12, 2013, in Bangor, Maine. The siblings were born as identical twins boys. The state supreme court heard arguments on Wednesday over a school district’s handling of Nicole Maine's restroom needs. The lawsuit accuses the school district of breaking a state law in 2007 when it stopped letting the Maines use the girls bathroom and required to her use a staff bathroom after a student's grandfather complained.

These sick stories remind me of another Bible verse, the one that warns us not to cause children to sin against God.

“If anyone causes one of these little ones — those who believe in me — to stumble,” warned Jesus, “it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea.” (Mark 9:42)

bruce reimer

Bruce Reiner was born as a boy, raised as a girl, had surgery to create a vagina and then later committed suicide.

The Sad Case of Bruce Reimer

I am also reminded of the tragic case of Bruce Reimer, born a male with a twin brother, Brian, in Winnipeg, Canada, in the 1960s. Following a botched circumcision Bruce was raised as a girl, Brenda. Doctors fully castrated him as a baby and later gave him female hormones so he could like his entire life as a woman. Bruce’s clueless parents agreed to this.

Enter the evil mad scientist, Dr. John Money, a “sexologist.” It was Money’s theory — as it is the theory of so many in today’s sex-obsessed culture — that gender identity is the product of nurture rather than nature. Dr. Money followed the twins’ progress throughout their tragic lives, forcing them to strip naked in interviews and examine each others’ genitals … and forcing them to re-enact the sex act as male and female while the mad Dr. Money took pictures.

But Brenda, formerly Bruce, knew in his soul that there was something wrong with him, and as time went on he began to live out a more masculine lifestyle — despite Dr. Money’s efforts to force him to behave like a girl. At the age of seven Dr. Money began to torment Brenda with demands that he have surgery to create a vagina. Brenda resisted to the end.

When, as a young adult, Brenda finally learned that he was a male, he immediately began to live as a man and stopped taking the female hormones. He even married a woman and adopted his wife’s children.

But the horror of what had been done to him was too much for both twins. First the twin brother Brian killed himself with an overdose of anti-depressants. Then, at the age of 38, Bruce shot himself in the head with a shotgun.

Dr. Money was allowed to live out his life in comfort until the age of 85 as a renowned sexologist, dying in 2006. Sadly, at least two of his victims killed themselves because they could not live out the false life that Dr. Money had chosen for them.

Are we repeating today the experiments that Dr. Money performed all those years ago? Are we risking the lives and happiness of our children to satisfy the sex lobby’s insatiable appetite for destruction?

Tragic Human Cost

Like the heartbreaking story of Bruce Reimer, which can be viewed here in a BBC documentary, the lifestyles of Billie Lourd and Miley Cyrus are just exotic theories without regard for the tragic human cost. Because despite the “feelings” of these sad and confused individuals, God made them male and female. Their feelings really don’t matter.

Bruce Reiner was born as a boy, raised as a girl, had surgery to create a vagina and then later committed suicide.

Thankfully, we are beginning to see some pushback to all this nonsense. Thirteen states have filed lawsuits against the Obama edict mandating that transgenders have free access to any bathroom (and locker room) of their choice.

In late 2016 a Texas judge blocked Obama’s edict. And in North Carolina officials enacted a ban on forcing public facilities to provide transgender restrooms. (The LGBT lobby is fighting this tooth and nail and vowing to overturn the ban.)

Taken to its illogical extreme — that we are whatever we think we are — then what is to stop me from claiming age fluidity? So what if my birth certificate shows that I’m a senior citizen. I identify as a 24 year old, at least today.

Or, I may be just 24 and identify as a senior citizen …

… so I demand the senior citizen discount.

Foolish it is, this gender genocide is sweeping our nation. But dangerous, too. In Romans 1 we are warned:

“God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.”

And “furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.” And, “although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.”

God help us if we continue on this path toward the utter and complete genocide of the genders that God ordained for us.

Obama farewell: Half the nation can’t wait to be rid of him

Obama the dreamweaver will leave office with the highest favorable ratings he has enjoyed since the honeymoon months following his 2008 election. Despite this, in the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls judging whether the country is heading in the right direction, roughly the same percentage of Americans who approve of Obama also believe the country is headed the wrong way.

This is not a new phenomenon. Indeed, the growing realization that Obama’s massive social spending programs that have doubled our national debt in just eight years were doing serious damage to our economy has been building for the past four years, and led to Donald Trump’s victory in November.

A majority of Americans are fed up with Obama’s policies, while paradoxically they still retain a favorable view of Obama the person.

Every president should be so lucky.

But a president who is so lucky should also be clear-headed enough to recognize the distinction, and not take his success in the personality contest to mean the American people approve of his policies.

Clearly, Obama has not understood this. His limitless narcissism continues to cloud his view of himself, his policies, and his impact on America.

Obama believes that he is leaving the country with an economy far stronger than the economy he inherited. On the surface, that is true. When you come to office as the economy lurches into an apparent death spiral, any recovery seems good.

Certainly, the economy has climbed back from the depths of the recession. But this has been a jobless recovery, with 95 million Americanswho have bowed out of the labor force, an unprecedented number.

These are not fantasy numbers, but official U.S. government numbers compiled by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), based on a total of 252 million Americans over the age of 16 in the labor pool. The under or unemployed equal 37.7% of that total workforce.

In an effort to minimize those disastrous results, the BLS claims that the majority — including an overwhelming majority of young people aged 16-24 — “do not want a job now.” That is just patently absurd.

Along with this unprecedented rise in unemployment, under Obama the number of Americans receiving food stamps has also risen to historic highs, growing from 28 million when he took office to more than 44 million today, or 14.5% of the U.S. population.

Even left-wing websites such as the DailyKos cannot mask the outrageous — and tragic — rise in dependence on government handouts under this president.

And yet, this president claims that “we’ve turned an economy that was shrinking and losing jobs into one that’s growing and creating jobs, with poverty falling, incomes rising, and wages that have jumped faster over the past few years than at any time in the past four decades.”

He claimed unbelievably in Chicago that health care costs are “rising at the slowest rate in fifty years,” when anyone paying for health insurance today knows just the opposite is the case.

Obama believes he can build his legacy on a tissue of lies, just as he built his presidency.

He wants us to believe that he has reduced race tensions, when any sentient being can see just the opposite is the case. He wants us to believe that crime is down, incomes are up, and terrorism is no more than a law enforcement issue.

He wants us to believe that his withdrawal from Iraq has led to a “sustainable” U.S. presence in that country, when in fact our totally unnecessary and unwanted (by the Iraqi people) withdrawal has led to massive bloodshed and an ISIS takeover of one-third of the country.

In addition to creating ISIS, the power vacuum created by the U.S. withdrawal has handed much of Iraq over to Iranian control, with Iranian government agents now running Iraq’s central government and Iranian-backed militias poised to overrun much of the country.

Since the 2008 election, Obama has proclaimed that Afghanistan was the “right war.” And yet, despite his surge loss of more Americans than during the entire Bush years, Afghanistan is a shambles and the Taliban controls more territory today than it did when he took office.

The Obamas are such phonies, it’s hard to confront their lies with a straight face.

To an enthusiastic crowd in Chicago who had drunk the Kool-Aid, Obama claimed that America was “a better, stronger place than when we started.” And then he set to firing up his base, blaming his opponents for dividing America, when he himself bears the greatest responsibility pitting Americans against each other by race, creed, and income.

Obama’s legacy is a graveyard of disasters.

  • Libya: an unnecessary war, where the United States deposed a pro-U.S. authoritarian who had given up his WMD and joined the fight against al-Qaeda. Today, that country is controlled by ISIS and other Islamist groups.
  • Syria: Obama proclaimed “red-lines” in 2012 and stood by passively as Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad trampled them repeatedly. Today, Russia for the first time since the Cold War has military bases in the country, while Iran and its proxies physically occupy a third of the country.
  • Iran: The nuclear deal Obama heralded? It legitimates Iran’s nuclear weapons program, and actually commits the United States to helping Iran develop its nuclear infrastructure. It also commits us to helping Iran defeat cyber attacks, such as Stuxnet the U.S. and Israel jointly launched under Obama’s stewardship to crash Iran’s uranium enrichment centrifuges.

Obama hinted he wants to become the leader of the anti-Trump movement in the next four years. Certainly, an anti-Trump U.S. media will welcome and promote him.

But as the new president actually grows the economy, expands prosperity, and makes America stronger and safer again in clearly demonstrable ways, my guess is Obama’s game will soon get old.

Let’s hope reality will win out over the delusions of the past eight years.

VIDEO: Columbia University Students Want Planned Parenthood to FUND FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION!

AFDI UNVEILS ALARMING NEW VIDEO SHOWING ACCEPTANCE OF FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION AT COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY

NEW YORK, New York: The human rights advocacy group the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) today unveiled an alarming new video, filmed at Columbia University, showing that at Columbia University, an Ivy League school and one of the nation’s foremost centers of higher learning, most students are willing to condone female genital mutilation.

AFDI President Pamela Geller noted: “Students were asked if Planned Parenthood should fund and support female genital mutilation (FGM). FGM involves partial or total removal of the clitoris causing injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons. It has no health benefits for girls and women, and removes all possibility of sexual pleasure. It is the worst kind of misogyny. Procedures can cause severe bleeding and problems urinating, and later cysts, infections, as well as complications in childbirth and increased risk of newborn deaths.”

Geller explained: “We sent AFDI reporter Laura Loomer to Columbia and found the people there remarkably unconcerned about female genital mutilation. Probably because of fear of being called ‘racist’ or ‘Islamophobic,’ they condoned the introduction into the U.S. of this human rights abuse.”

The video shows the need for honest and realistic education about the crime of female genital mutilation, and the failure of the American academic establishment to provide that education.

Donald J. Trump on Phyllis Schlafly: ‘She never wavered’ … Nor will I

As Americans anticipate the inauguration and administration of President-elect Donald J. Trump, it is fitting that we remember the life of Phyllis Schlafly the leader of the pro-life movement. President-elect Trump has promised to appoint strict Constitutionalist pro-life Supreme Court Justices in the mold of Anthony Scalia.

In a the column LifeNews.com column Donald Trump: “I Am Pro-Life and I Will be Appointing Pro-Life Judges” to the Supreme Court Steven Ertelt reported:

During tonight’s presidential debate [on October 19, 2016 at University of Nevada-Las Vegas] Donald Trump made it very clear that he will appoint pro-life justices to the Supreme Court who would be likely to overturn the Roe versus Wade decision that has led to 58 million abortions.

Trump said he is pro-life and the kinds of Judges he would put on the nation’s highest court are those that would be the kind pro-life voters would appreciate. For pro-life voters, the Supreme Court is probably the most important election issue this year as the nation’s highest court could control the fate of abortion for decades to come and whether another 58 million abortions happen or if unborn children will eventually enjoy legal protection.

“The Supreme Court – it’s what it’s all about. Our country is so, just so imperative that we have the right justices,” Trump said. ” I feel that the justices that I am going to appoint– and I’ve named 20 of them. The justices that I’m going to appoint will be pro-life. They will have a conservative bent.

When then candidate Trump said this perhaps he was thinking of Phyllis Schlafly? It may be so because at her funeral just a month before this debate Trump stated, “[W]e will never ever let you down.” I now appears that a President Trump will keep his promise to Phyllis.

Phyllis Schlafly

Full text of remarks delivered by Donald J. Trump at the funeral of Phyllis Schlafly
Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis, September 10, 2016

Thank you very much. What a great honor. And what a great lady.

We are here today to honor the life and legacy of a truly great American patriot. I wish first and most importantly to extend my deepest heartfelt condolences to her six wonderful children who she loved so much – John, Bruce, Roger, Liza, Andy, and Anne. And also her sixteen grandchildren and her three great grandchildren.

A movement has lost its hero. And believe me, Phyllis was there for me when it was not at all fashionable. Trust me. You have lost a mother. An amazing mother. And our country has lost a true patriot. Phyllis was a strong, proud, fierce, and tireless warrior; and that’s what she was – she was a warrior. And she was a warrior for the country, which she loved so much. Even at the age of 92, this beloved woman had more strength and fire and heart than 50 strong politicians all put together. Believe me, I witnessed it. To borrow a phrase from a great poet, Phyllis was “that strength which in all days moved heaven and earth.” This incredible woman has been active in American politics for one quarter of American history – think of that. One quarter of American history. And at the top! She was the ultimate happy warrior – always smiling, but boy could she be tough. We all know that. And in all of her battles, she never strayed from the one guiding principle – she was for America. And it was always America first. People have forgotten that nowadays. With Phyllis it was America first.

She never wavered. Never apologized. And never backed down in taking on the kingmakers. She never stopped fighting for the fundamental idea that the America people ought to have their needs come before anything or anyone else. She loved her country, she loved her family, and she loved her God.

Her legacy will live on every time some underdog – outmatched and outgunned – defies the odds and delivers a win for the people. America has always been about the underdog and always about defying the odds. The idea that so-called “little people” or the “little person,” that she loved so much, could beat the system – often times the rigged system (we’ve been hearing a lot about it) – that the American grassroots is more powerful than all of the worlds’ special interests put together. And that’s the way Phyllis felt. She’s always felt that way. That’s the romance of America; that’s the story of the mother and the patriot that we honor here today. Phyllis, who has rejoined with her late husband Fred, is looking down on us right now and I’m sure that she’s telling us to keep up the fight – no doubt. No doubt about it.

Phyllis we love you, we miss you, and we will never ever let you down. God bless you, Phyllis. God bless her family. And God bless everyone. Thank you very much, thank you.

100-day-plan

Celebrating the New Year With Our 100 Day Plan

Here we are as in olden days, happy golden days, of yore …” Christmas was awesome! Since moving to Florida 16 years ago, this was Mary and my first Christmas back to Baltimore for the annual Christmas Eve festivities at my dad’s home. My four younger siblings, their kids and grand-kids were there. The millennial girls prepared a delicious homemade feast. We joined hands in a huge circle for Dad to say grace.

Dad, 89 caught me by surprise. Passing the baton of family leadership, Dad said his time was running out and they should come to me as patriarch of the family.

I’m a mystery to many in my family; the embarrassing traitorous black political activist they see in the media bashing their beloved Obama. So when patriarch Dad said this is my beloved son, hear ye him, that was huge. It is a responsibility I take very seriously.

As Chairman of the Conservative Campaign Committee, I am with our team in a secured underground bunker in an undisclosed location planning our strategy for assisting the implementation of The 100 Day Plan (Donald Trump’s Contract With The American Voter); just kidding about the bunker.

While I did not become a Christian preacher like my dad, politics is my ministry. This battle goes beyond Democrats vs Republicans/Conservatives vs Liberals. We battle not against flesh and blood, but spiritual wickedness in high places; good vs evil. No, I am not saying everything Republican is good. I am saying 99% of the modern Democrat party’s agenda is anti-God, anti-America and anti-traditional wholesome values. If you believe you’re a chicken trapped in a human body, count on the democrats to pass legislation to fund your feather implants and force us to celebrate your Chickenization.

During the debates Trump said partial-birth abortion is wrong. Hillary’s shocking retort was a woman has the right to kill her baby on the day of delivery. Then, she used the Left’s tactic of attempting to brand anyone who thinks otherwise a male Neanderthal who hates women. Evil folks.

Trump’s landslide electoral victory was clearly a repudiation of the Left’s agenda from forcing Americans to allow men to use restrooms with their daughters to dethroning America as the world power.

I am convinced many still do not comprehend the Left’s disdain for us normal Americans, God, traditional family and country. Forcing the Left’s minority agenda down our throats is all that matters; trumping national security and American lives. Therefore, no tactic is too deadly, divisive or evil. This is the arena in which we fight. Some on our side still don’t get it; wanting to bring an olive branch or a knife to a gun fight.

With blood coming out of their eyes from hate and rage, the Left is committed 24/7 to branding Trump’s election illegitimate and blocking our 100 Day Plan.

Leftist actor Charlie Sheen tweeted that he wishes for the death of Trump.

Extreme Leftist, Democrat Rep. Maxine Walters vowed, “I’m going to fight him every inch of the way!”

Make no mistake about it folks, all the Left’s vitriol against Trump is really their hatred for us; every day Americans. CNN’s hate-filled Leftist Van Jones slandered Trump voters calling them angry white racist against a changing country and a black president.

Even Leftist columnist Maureen Dowd had to admit that this election was Americans rejecting Obama’s and the Left’s agenda. Mr. Trump received over 62 million votes, not all of them cast by homophobes, Islamophobes, racists, sexists, misogynists or any other “ists.”

So here we are folks. The Inauguration is weeks away. The Left true to its evil nature is still being obstructive; spewing fear and hate including celebs refusing to perform at the Inauguration. Fine. This is God’s way of providing an opportunity for other deserving artists.

I’m so excited about the new year 2017. However, the Left “ain’t” stoppin’ and they ain’t goin’ away. I cannot express enough how crucially important it is that we stay alert and protective of our 100 Day Plan; doing everything legally possible to push it through.

I feel like singing, “Happy days are here again…The skies above are clear again…So let’s sing a song of cheer again…Happy days are here again!”

Pronouns Matter, Misgendering and Gender Fluid are ‘Foolishness’

In The Blaze column “‘My pronouns are…’: College library workers wear buttons announcing preferred gender pronouns” Dave Urbanski reports:

A sign posted at University of Kansas Libraries spells it out.

“Because gender is, itself, fluid and up to the individual,” the sign says, according to the Lawrence Journal-World. “Each person has the right to identify their own pronouns, and we encourage you to ask before assuming someone’s gender. Pronouns matter! Misgendering someone can have lasting consequences, and using the incorrect pronoun can be hurtful, disrespectful, and invalidate someone’s identity.”

Now some library employees are wearing buttons that announce their preferred gender pronouns, the Journal-World reported.

The “My pronouns are” buttons come in three versions: “He him his,” “She her hers” and “They them theirs” — the latter for those who don’t identify as male or female, the paper said.

What is most queer is the University of Kansas statement that “gender is, itself, fluid and up to the individual.”

Upon reading this article Brit Hume from Fox News posted the below tweet:

brit-hume-tweet-on-gender-fluid

The definition of foolishness is “lack of good sense or judgment; stupidity.” This is what the University of Kansas is teaching our youth, to lack good sense and be stupid.

But the University of Kansas has foolish champions in the field of sociology, one of them being Dr. Zuleyka Zevallos. Dr. Zevallos is an applied sociologist and is the publisher of the Other Sociologist blog. Zevallos explains the difference between sex, gender and sexuality using the below infographic:

sex-gender-and-sexuality-sociology-definitions

Dr Zuleyka Zevallos

Dr. Zuleyka Zevallos

Note the foolishness in the Zevallos infographic. Let’s take each statement and analyse it:

  1. Sex are “biological traits that society associates with being male or female.” Truth: sex is determined by science, DNA and the laws of nature, not society.
  2. Gender is “cultural meaning attached to being masculine & feminine, which influence personal identities.” True in part. Culture and society is based upon science, DNA and the laws of nature, which by definition, associates gender with a person’s sex at birth. What is wrong is Zevallos listing “transgender, intersex, gender queer, among others” in the Gender category. The only two words that belong under Gender are man and woman.
  3. Finally, Zevallos get it right when she defines sexuality as a choice a “sexual attraction” and “practices which may  or may not align with sex and gender.” Sodomy is a choice. Sodomy in mutable. One’s sex and gender are immutable.

To believe that one can choose one’s gender is indeed foolish and believing that gender is fluid can be dangerous for the individual, a culture and society in general.

Biology, science and genetics, and therefore society/culture, are all in agreement that a male is in fact a male and a female is in fact a female. Changing one’s appearance does not change one’s sex. Believing one is something he or she is not is the definition of foolishness.

To believe otherwise is foolishness.

In helping you choose the best medical alert systems at the same time we provide you with highly effective health care tips. Health care is of crucial importance especially when it comes to safety of the elderly. Medical alert systems are a key to this safety and in order for them to function properly and contribute to the health care of your loved ones you need to have the skills and knowledge to choose the right one.

The best medical alert systems come with certain important features that are the basis of their “successful functioning”. So let’s have a look at these important features that you should seek in every medical alert system:

  • Alarm Buttons: Any quality company that you apply for a medical alert system will by all means offer you a selection between pendant and wristband types of buttons. The further choice is a matter of individual preference.
  • Wall-Mounted Help Buttons: Check out the availability of installing wall-mounted buttons throughout your house. This will be very helpful in case you “get into trouble” and don’t have your medical alert system around your neck or on your wrist. You can call for help with the help of these buttons.
  • Contact Listing: A quality and customer-oriented medical alert service will preserve a list of contacts and let you choose whom to call for your rescue. Maybe all you need is just a neighbour’s kind assistance.
  • Battery Backup: This point is crucial and makes up an important part of our care tips because of the simple reason that if your medical alert system lacks battery backup then in case of sudden power cuts it will be of no use. Battery backup will enable the functioning of your medical alert system even if there is no trace of electricity in your house.
  • Call Center: Speaking about the call center, we recommend you to check carefully whether it is of high quality and whether or not the staff is professional. For this exact purpose, the main way of checking the professionalism of the members of the call center staff is to make sure they are certified by the Underwriters Laboratory or UL. The latter qualifies companies according to the standards of quality they provide for customer care. Make sure your call center not only qualifies for these standards but also passes them on a regular basis.

What is the Amount of Coverage Provided by Your Medical Alert System?

Here arises another important question regarding medical alert systems. You should know how much coverage you or your loved one need. The answer to this depends on the type and size of house you live in. However, regardless of your house type, be it a big three-storey house with a garden, a small cottage, or an apartment, you should be sure that your medical alert system has enough amount of coverage and will function not only everywhere in the house, but in the yard/garden as well.

Landline or Cellular Service?

The next thing you should ask yourself refers to the type of medical alert system you want. Landline service is considered highly reliable but requires the presence of an available phone line. However, if you don’t have a phone line, then the cellular medical alert system will function as good. The rest depends on your personal choice.

Do You Need Fall Detection?

This question sounds about the same as “Do you need an additional safety feature?” The answer is obviously positive. Of course, you do! This feature might especially be of great relevance if you or your loved ones suffer from any kind of disease. You are never fully secured even with a medical alert system on your neck or wrist. But you can be if you buy one with the feature of fall detection.

Fall detection means the availability of special motion detection sensors that are normally built in into the medical alert system. They will detect the falling of a person and call for help automatically. Don’t hesitate to pay a bit more for this feature!

Are Medication Reminders Effective?

Some companies might offer special reminder-services that tell the elderly that it’s time to take their medication. This is done either automatically or through a base station and over the phone. This will be a good option for those suffering from regular memory losses.

What Do I Need to Know about the Medical Alert System Pricing Technique?

To start with, keep in mind that the concept of price is very relative and that neither a very low price nor a high one will ensure high quality. However, when talking about the prices of medical alert systems, we shall say that they are generally not very expensive, but require monthly or yearly fees. The latter differ from company to company.

Some companies might offer you to sign contracts. We advise you either not to agree to this, especially if they insist on it much, or do it with the help of a lawyer because these contracts can be really tricky and have some hidden fees.

Make sure the company provides you with price guarantee. If it doesn’t, it might raise your monthly fees later.

Another important tip is that you should find out the system activation fee beforehand so as not to have to face unexpected issues later.

And last but not least, don’t forget to buy a medical alert system that comes with a warranty. The latter will help you avoid wasting hundreds of dollars in case of any system malfunctions.

Medical alert systems are highly efficient and are worth the money, but following our tips you will get the best buy and the most affordable health care service.

What about the Lockbox?

For those who don’t know, a lockbox is a special box that comes with a lock combination chosen according to your preferences, it is kept outside of your house and contains a spare set of your house keys with the help of which the emergency staff won’t have to break the door in order to enter your house. This is very beneficial in terms of your budget as it will help you avoid further “door renovations” requiring hundreds of dollars.

Having learnt all these tips and bought a medical alert system that meets all our instructions as well as your expectations, you can be sure that the health care of your loved ones or yourself is fully secured. Find out the best companies that have positive reviews by the majority of their customers (we have singled out the best ones for you to make your purchase easier), check the medical alert systems they offer, the features they provide and choose the one you consider the best fit for yourself from all aspects mentioned above.

Don’t forget to test the medical alert system after you complete the installation process. There is usually a test button, in case your device lacks one, simply push the alarm button that connects you with the call center to be sure it functions.

What refers to the installation, it is utterly easy and doesn’t require much time. You can do it by simply reading the step-by-step instructions that most companies will provide you with. In case you have trouble with the installation process, simply call the company’s service center and they will give you further instructions on the phone.

Note: Don’t trust a company that wants to send a specialist with you for the installation, let alone requires additional fees for it. No high-quality company would do such a thing because of the simple fact that the installation of a medical alert system is extremely easy! In essence, all it takes you is to plug in the device into the wall.

Follow the health care of your loved ones and yourself, buy the best medical alert systems and keep yourself secure in all emergency situations!

Reflections on the Trump Presidency by Ray Dalio

Reflections on the Trump Presidency, One Month after the Election

By Ray Dalio

Now that we’re a month past the election and most of the cabinet posts have been filled, it is increasingly obvious that we are about to experience a profound, president-led ideological shift that will have a big impact on both the US and the world. This will not just be a shift in government policy, but also a shift in how government policy is pursued. Trump is a deal maker who negotiates hard, and doesn’t mind getting banged around or banging others around. Similarly, the people he chose are bold and hell-bent on playing hardball to make big changes happen in economics and in foreign policy (as well as other areas such as education, environmental policies, etc.). They also have different temperaments and different views that will have to be resolved.

Regarding economics, if you haven’t read Ayn Rand lately, I suggest that you do as her books pretty well capture the mindset. This new administration hates weak, unproductive, socialist people and policies, and it admires strong, can-do, profit makers. It wants to, and probably will, shift the environment from one that makes profit makers villains with limited power to one that makes them heroes with significant power. The shift from the past administration to this administration will probably be even more significant than the 1979-82 shift from the socialists to the capitalists in the UK, US, and Germany when Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan, and Helmut Kohl came to power. To understand that ideological shift you also might read Thatcher’s “The Downing Street Years.” Or, you might reflect on China’s political/economic shift as marked by moving from “protecting the iron rice bowl” to believing that “it’s glorious to be rich.”

This particular shift by the Trump administration could have a much bigger impact on the US economy than one would calculate on the basis of changes in tax and spending policies alone because it could ignite animal spirits and attract productive capital. Regarding igniting animal spirits, if this administration can spark a virtuous cycle in which people can make money, the move out of cash (that pays them virtually nothing) to risk-on investments could be huge. Regarding attracting capital, Trump’s policies can also have a big impact because businessmen and investors move very quickly away from inhospitable environments to hospitable environments. Remember how quickly money left and came back to places like Spain and Argentina? A pro-business US with its rule of law, political stability, property rights protections, and (soon to be) favorable corporate taxes offers a uniquely attractive environment for those who make money and/or have money. These policies will also have shocking negative impacts on certain sectors.

Regarding foreign policy, we should expect the Trump administration to be comparably aggressive. Notably, even before assuming the presidency, Trump is questioning the one-China policy which is a shocking move. Policies pertaining to Iran, Mexico, and most other countries will probably also be aggressive.

The question is whether this administration will be a) aggressive and thoughtful or b) aggressive and reckless. The interactions between Trump, his heavy-weight advisors, and them with each other will likely determine the answer to this question. For example, on the foreign policy front, what Trump, Flynn, Tillerson, and Mattis (and others) are individually and collectively like will probably determine how much the new administration’s policies will be a) aggressive and thoughtful versus b) aggressive and reckless. We are pretty sure that it won’t take long to find out.

In the next section we look at some of the new appointees via some statistics to characterize what they’re like. Most notably, many of the people entering the new administration have held serious responsibilities that required pragmatism and sound judgment, with a notable skew toward businessmen.

Perspective on the Ideology and Experience of the New Trump Administration

We can get a rough sense of the experience of the new Trump administration by adding up the years major appointees have spent in relevant leadership positions. The table below compares the executive/government experience of the Trump administration’s top eight officials* to previous administrations, counting elected positions, government roles with major administrative responsibilities, or time as C-suite corporate executives or equivalent at mid-size or large companies. Trump’s administration stands out for having by far the most business experience and a bit lower than average government experience (lower compared to recent presidents, and in line with Carter and Reagan). But the cumulative years of executive/government experience of his appointees are second-highest. Obviously, this is a very simple, imprecise measure, and there will be gray zones in exactly how you classify people, but it is indicative.

Below we show some rough quantitative measures of the ideological shift to the right we’re likely to see under Trump and the Republican Congress. First, we look at the economic ideology of the incoming US Congress. Trump’s views may differ in some important ways from the Congressional Republicans, but he’ll need Congressional support for many of his policies and he’s picking many of his nominees from the heart of the Republican Party. As the chart below shows, the Republican members of Congress have shifted significantly to the right on economic issues since Reagan; Democratic congressmen have shifted a bit to the left. The measure below is one-dimensional and not precise, but it captures the flavor of the shift. The measure was commissioned by a National Science Foundation grant and is meant to capture economic views with a focus on government intervention on the economy. They looked at each congressman’s voting record, compared it to a measure of what an archetypical liberal or conservative congressman would have done, and rated each member of Congress on a scale of -1 to 1 (with -1 corresponding to an archetypical liberal and +1 corresponding to an archetypical conservative).

When we look more specifically at the ideology of Trump’s cabinet nominees, we see the same shift to the right on economic issues. Below we compare the ideology of Trump’s cabinet nominees to those of prior administrations using the same methodology as described above for the cabinet members who have been in the legislature. By this measure, Trump’s administration is the most conservative in recent American history, but only slightly more conservative than the average Republican congressman. Keep in mind that we are only including members of the new administration who have voting records (which is a very small group of people so far).

While the Trump administration appears very right-leaning by the measures above, it’s worth keeping in mind that Trump’s stated ideology differs from traditional Republicans in a number of ways, most notably on issues related to free trade and protectionism. In addition, a number of key members of his team—such as Steven Mnuchin, Rex Tillerson, and Wilbur Ross—don’t have voting records and may not subscribe to the same brand of conservatism as many Republican congressmen. There’s a degree of difference in ideology and a level of uncertainty that these measures don’t convey.

Comparing the Trump and Reagan Administrations

The above was a very rough quantitative look at Trump’s administration. To draw out some more nuances, below we zoom in on Trump’s particular appointees and compare them to those of the Reagan administration. Trump is still filling in his appointments, so the picture is still emerging and our observations are based on his key appointments so far.

Looking closer, a few observations are worth noting. First, the overall quality of government experience in the Trump administration looks to be a bit less than Reagan’s, while the Trump team’s strong business experience stands out (in particular, the amount of business experience among top cabinet nominees). Even though Reagan’s administration had somewhat fewer years of government experience, the typical quality of that experience was somewhat higher, with more people who had served in senior government positions. Reagan himself had more political experience than Trump does, having served as the governor of California for eight years prior to taking office, and he also had people with significant past government experience in top posts (such as his VP, George HW Bush). By contrast, Trump’s appointees bring lots of high quality business leadership experience from roles that required pragmatism and judgment. Rex Tillerson’s time as head of a global oil company is a good example of high-level international business experience with clear relevance to his role as Secretary of State (to some extent reminiscent of Reagan’s second Secretary of State, George Shultz, who had a mix of past government experience and international business experience as the president of the construction firm Bechtel). Steven Mnuchin and Wilbur Ross have serious business credentials as well, not to mention Trump’s own experience. It’s also of note that Trump has leaned heavily on appointees with military experience to compensate for his lack of foreign policy experience (appointing three generals for Defense, National Security Advisor, and Homeland Security), while Reagan compensated for his weakness in that area with appointees from both military and civilian government backgrounds (Bush had been CIA head and UN ambassador, and Reagan’s first Secretary of State, Alexander Haig, was Supreme Allied Commander of NATO forces during the Cold War). Also, Trump has seemed less willing to make appointments from among his opponents than Reagan was (Reagan’s Chief of Staff had chaired opposing campaigns, and his Vice President had run against him).

By and large, deal-maker businessmen will be running the government. Their boldness will almost certainly make the next four years incredibly interesting and will keep us all on our toes.

lbj war on poverty

Why Poverty MUST Be About Racism, Not Marriage

Virtually every Trump voter, reluctant Trump voter or defender of any policy or appointment of Trump, is being hit with one or more of the following personal accusations: racist, misogynist, bigot, homophobe.

Or maybe you exist as the trifecta. In many people’s minds, the three-part combo of white and male and Christian has become the bane of all that is wrong with society — the real cause of the nation’s problems.

Like most things we tackle at The Revolutionary Act, this is not just wrong thinking. It is irrational, emotion-based and anecdote-reliant, driven by a cultural misinformation machine and ultimately dangerous to the people they claim to want to be helping.

For instance, a recent Facebook debate on poverty focused almost exclusively on racism in the United States. We interjected data definitively showing that the strongest links to poverty are single moms, not graduating from high school and not taking a job, according to the moderate Brookings Institute.

These factors apply to whites, blacks, Hispanics and surely all of the rest of humanity. So the solution is not blaming entrenched institutional racism — which has now become a tiny rump of what it once was — but to tackle the ultimate causes. The solution is connecting personal choices to outcomes.

Now, try posting that on Facebook. The responses are irrational, emotion-based and anecdote-reliant. A recent fad is to be labeled a “scold.” Anything except the actual merits of the point.

Irrational: “What about the men who get these single moms pregnant!?!?! This hatred of women is why Hill lost.”

Emotional: “I’m a single mom and the proud daughter of a single mom! Quit telling me I’m the problem!!!”

Anecdote-reliant: “Plenty of kids succeed coming from single-parent households. Look at Ben Carson.”

There you have it. Toss out the scientific data — actual facts — and fall back on irrational charges, emotional defenses and Ben Carson.

Sigh.

This is why we cannot make any headway against poverty despite our enormous wealth and mind-boggling wealth transfers.

The welfare failure

We’ve transferred $22 trillion to poorer Americans since launching the war on poverty in 1964, according to the National Center for Policy Analysis. And yet official poverty numbers have hardly budged at all.

Robert Rector, one of the authors of the NCPA study, wrote: “If converted to cash, current means-tested spending is five times the amount needed to eliminate all official poverty in the U.S.” Got that? We could write a check to each poor person annually to get them out of poverty — five times over.

OK, so this just must to be excruciatingly clear: the 80 government welfare programs (which does not include Social Security and Medicare) are definitive failures in doing anything to affect poverty. There can be no argument about that. Doing more of what has failed for 50 years is doomed to further failure.

So why do we keep doing it?

The problem of marriage morals

Because to actually fix the problem we would have to declare certain things as true and proclaim the necessary ownership of personal choices.

First, out-of-wedlock births are first-line causes of poverty (as is divorce — and that is stepping on a lot of toes) and that leads to pre-marital sex being at the very least a risky step toward poverty. As that is often conducted unprotected and in the heat of passion, particularly with young people, it is better to not have sex outside of marriage.

Well that’s starting to sound an awful lot like some puritanical Bible-thumping — and the culture drivers in our country simply cannot abide by such a thing. In fact work and personal responsibility also have a bit of a biblical ring to them.

After spending much of the 20th century trying to break down Judeo-Christian moral sexual norms — and we are now all the way up to gay marriage and transvestite men using the women’s room — no one is willing to talk about the need for sexual self-control and fidelity. And certainly no one wants to talk about sex outside marriage being wrong. Watch any TV show or movie. The opposite is glorified, and the image painted is that everyone does it.

But if we did talk about sex only in marriage, and promoted it like we promote the ongoing sexual “revolution,” we would take a huge step toward defeating a lot of poverty. At least, that’s what the actual facts suggest.

But we won’t. Because we don’t want to. So we blame racism because it is cheap, easy and available and makes many feel morally superior.

And poverty remains as it has ever been. Transferring $22 trillion changed nothing. And another $22 trillion won’t, either.

marijuana-violence

Marijuana causes psychotic behavior and violence — Trump to the rescue

In the Controlled Substances Act of 1970, marijuana was classified as a Schedule I drug because it was considered to have no “accepted medical use in treatment in the United States.” Recently John Bolton, one of the candidates on Donald Trump’s short list for Secretary Of State, said on the Fox News program “Out Numbered” that all of the States laws that legalize marijuana are unconstitutional.

The drug treatment organization Caron website says this about marijuana:

The short term signs of marijuana use include impaired coordination; skewed sensory and time perception; difficulty thinking, concentrating and problem solving; shortened attention span and distractibility; decreased alertness; impaired learning and memory; and euphoria. Additionally, marijuana can cause disturbed thoughts and worsen psychotic symptoms in schizophrenics.

A long-term marijuana problem often results in lowered motivation and an impaired ability to function in daily life. Some also experience anxiety, panic attacks, respiratory illnesses and increased heart rate and risk of heart attack. Though research is not definitive, chronic marijuana use has been linked to mental illness such as anxiety, depression and schizophrenia. [Emphasis added]

Accuracy in Media’s Cliff Kincaid writes:

Deranged potheads, some of them Islamists, are killing people in a series of violent and terrorist incidents on American soil.

In a recent case in Massachusetts, 15-year-old Mathew Borges has been charged with first-degree murder in the decapitation death of a classmate. But you have to read deep into the articles about the case to discover a motive. Police said he told them that he and his victim, Lee Manuel Viloria-Paulino, went away together to “smoke marijuana.”

[ … ]

Dr. Christine Miller, who has written about the relationship between marijuana and mental illness, says the documented links between the heavy use of marijuana and psychosis in some people may help explain the gruesome murder in Massachusetts.

Ironically, Massachusetts was one of those states that approved the legalization of “recreational” marijuana on November 8 [2016].

[ … ]

Miller cites another case out of Oregon where a pothead decided out of the blue to drive his car over another person he feared and considered a threat. Moments before he struck and killed a man with his car, the suspect in the fatal hit-and-run incident had smoked marijuana in his car and then intentionally sped toward the victim, officials on the scene said.

On November 8th, Floridians approved Amendment 2, which legalizes use of marijuana for medical purposes in the Sunshine state’s constitution. The concern of many Floridians is that the amendment will lead inextricably to recreational use as “pot shops” spread across the state.

Kincaid adds the warning, “Don’t expect our liberal, pro-drug media to draw the obvious connections between marijuana, psychosis and violence.”

The Trump administration may change the trend toward legalizing marijuana. Federal law forbids the use of marijuana for recreational use. Kincaid reports:

In the states where legalization has occurred, Miller says, marijuana usage rates have gone up. She says that because marijuana is an intrinsically dangerous drug, the most serious results of increased use are chronic psychosis (increased five-fold in regular users) and suicide (risk for suicide increased seven-fold in regular users).

But Dr. Miller and other anti-drug advocates, such as Calvina Fay of the Drug Free America Foundation, are optimistic that President-elect Donald J. Trump’s nominee for attorney general, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), will turn things around.

The Soros-funded drug legalization lobby is now scared. “This is looking really bad,” Ethan Nadelmann, executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance, said about Trump’s cabinet picks. “First Sessions for Attorney General, then [Rep. Tom] Price at HHS, and now yet another old-style drug war character for Homeland Security [General John Kelly]. It looks like Donald Trump is revving up to re-launch the failed drug war.”

Michael Collins, deputy director of the Drug Policy Alliance’s office of national affairs, denounced Kelly as “a big-time drug war zealot,” adding, “As head of Southern Command he demonstrated that he is a true believer in the drug war, and it’s incredibly worrying that he could now head up Homeland Security.”

President-elect Donald J. Trump has never used alcohol nor does he use drugs. He abhors the use of drugs and has repeatedly said that border security will help stop the flow of drugs, like marijuana, into the United States.

Watch out drug users. Looks like there is a new sheriff in town.

guardianship-abuse

How Fraudulent Guardianship Commencies and Continues

“A large part of the victim’s money is spent on attorney’s fees and guardian’s fees.  As long as there is ample money in the victim’s guardianship account, the guardian and her attorney cohorts will file motion upon motion after motion to the courts,”

STEP ONE—“EMINENT DANGER”—THE INITIAL COURT PETITION

The professional guardian, with the assistance of her attorneys, commences the embezzlement process by filing an emergency petition in the probate courts to become the “emergency” “temporary” guardian

Florida guardianship statutes, like many states, (Chapter 744) require that there be an “eminent danger” in order for the petitioner to become the “emergency temporary guardian.”

The guardian oftentimes fabricates the “eminent danger” by , stating that there is a neighbor or relative or stranger who is taking advantage of the elderly person.  In some cases, this may be a somewhat true statement, albeit an exaggerated claim.  In most cases, upon further investigation, there has been no “eminent danger” whatsoever.

Step One takes away all of the victim’s civil rights and therefore gives the guardian and her attorneys full control over the victim and his or her assets.

STEP TWO—THE EXAMINING COMMITTEE  

Once the professional guardian has taken control of the victim on a temporary basis (the emergency temporary guardianship order expires in 60 days) an examining committee of three medical “professionals” steps in to verify the allegation of mental incapacity.  Oftentimes, the  victim is administered a cocktail of psychotropic drugs to enhance the claims that he or she is incompetent.

“Ward” Elizabeth Faye Arnold, for instance, stated, “They put me on drugs that made me feel very drunk.  I couldn’t even remember my name.  Now that they have all my money, they don’t medicate me that way anymore.”   One of the three medical professionals must be a psychiatrist and the victim is generally always found to be mentally incapacitated.  The guardian usually has her own set of medical professionals that she utilizes on a regular basis.

Back in the courtroom, soon after the three medical professionals file their reports, there is a capacity hearing.  The victim seldom is permitted to attend this hearing.  The judge quickly scans the medical examinations that “verify” that the victim is “mentally and/or physically incapacitated.”  The judge then signs an order that gives the professional guardian full and permanent legal authority over the victim’s person and property.

STEP THREE—THE “FEAST” BEGINS 

Property is sold for below market value and the deeds switch and switch several times. (kick backs are suspected)  Bank accounts, annuities, stocks, and CDs are liquidated into one big guardianship account.

Out of this large bank account, the guardian is expected to pay all the victim’s, but bills oftentimes go unpaid.

HOW THE VICTIM’S MONEY IS SPENT

1.  ATTORNEY’S FEES AND GUARDIANSHIP FEES FOR “SERVICES RENDERED TO ‘BENEFIT’ THE ‘WARD’”

A large part of the victim’s money is spent on attorney’s fees and guardian’s fees.  As long as there is ample money in the victim’s guardianship account, the guardian and her attorney cohorts will file motion upon motion after motion to the courts, such as:

–A motion to sell the ward’s furniture

–A motion to liquidate stocks and CDs

–A motion to transfer the ward to a different nursing home

–A motion to sell the ward’s homesteaded house

–A motion to open up a safety deposit box

Each motion can cost the “ward” in excess of $2,000.00 because the motion must be written, researched, filed, and then a hearing is scheduled.  Oftentimes, the motions cost more than what is being petitioned for.

2.  PUFFING THE MONTHLY BUDGET—The guardian frequently doubles the monthly expenses then keeps the remainder.

  1. 3.      SELLING THE “WARD’S” PERSONAL BELONGINGS FOR BELOW MARKET VALUE THEN POCKETING THE DIFFERENCE—The guardian underestimates the amount of the sale of personal items, such as jewelry, paintings, and antiques, for the purpose of the court record inventories, then is free to keep the difference.  There is little court oversight.
  2. 4.     BILLS ARE SIMPLY NOT PAID

Oftentimes, the bills of the “ward” are not even paid.  When the “ward” dies, the guardian simply places an ad in an obscure newspaper, if there is money left for an estate to be probated.  Assuming creditors do not see the ad and file a claim against the estate within 30 days, their claims are forever barred and so the guardian was able to fool creditors and abscond with the money and not have to pay any of the bills.  If she is caught, she simply pays the bills of the creditors who caught her.  This frequently includes Medicaid.

  1. 5.     ACCOUNTING IS NOT ACCURATE

The guardian can claim a much lower amount of liquid assets than what the victim is actually worth and then pocket the rest.

EXAMPLE:  Julie Sweeten–$400,000.00 estate with an alleged $80,000.00 remaining when Sweeten died.  More than $300,000.00 was spent in three years.

Louise A. Falvo started off with approximately $800,000.00.  Two months into the guardianship, Fierle filed an accounting with the court stating that Falvo was worth only $672,000.00.   Shortly thereafter, a bank statement from Bank of America stated that Falvo now had $449,000 after all accounts had been liquidated.  So, approximately $200,000 turned up missing.

  1. 6.      FAKE WILLS:  In this scenario, the guardian claimed that Julie Sweeten desired to leave her estate to her bank.   A forged will was entered into the record. Wachovia Bank trustee was then given $80,000.00 from the uncontested, probated estate.

STEP FOUR:  THE MYSTERIOUS DEATHS

Once the funds have been spent, the “ward” oftentimes suddenly dies.

-OR

The “ward” dies when there is still plenty of money — if a huge probate battle can commence, thereby further enriching the attorneys and guardian.

Examples:  Carlisle Bosworth died soon after his $250,000 had been spent.

James Deaton–$5 million, three years in probate–$3 million in attorney’s fees with a pittance finally paid out to his family members.

LOUISE A. FALVO—suspected morphine sulphate overdose as cause of death; huge probate battle to enrich attorneys ensued even though

LOUISE A. FALVO’s bank accounts were all POD/ITF to her daughter, so probate should have been completely unnecessary.

NASGA, National Association to Stop Guardianship Abuse, has adopted a three part theme to succinctly describe the legally sanctioned exploitative guardianship process:  “Isolate, Medicate, Take the Estate.”

Illegal Alien Children eating up Health and Human Service’s agency budgets

You’ve probably all seen this news about the Department of Health and Services scrambling to re-direct money from other areas of the agency budget to take care of the largest number of ‘children’ (ever!) entering the U.S. illegally.

train-map

Where the wall needs to be…

I’m posting this so that as we move ahead in the coming days with news on the budget for FY17 and the Continuing Resolution, you have some background understanding of the dilemma the refugee program is in during the waning days of the Obama Administration.  The ‘kids’ (who are NOT refugees) are gobbling up limited funds putting their needs in direct competition with the refugees entering the US from all over the world. (In addition to depriving US citizens of other needed programs.)

For new readers, the Office of Refugee Resettlement is an agency at HHS which has been given the duty of taking care of the illegal alien kids.

Here is Jessica Vaughan at the Center for Immigration Studies:

An average of 255 illegal alien youths were taken into the custody of the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) every day this month, according to the latest figures the agency provided to Congress. This is the largest number of illegal alien children ever in the care of the federal government. To pay for it, the agency says it will need an additional one or two billion dollars for the next year – above and beyond the $1.2 billion spent in 2016 and proposed for 2017 – depending on how many more arrive. For now, the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), where ORR resides, is diverting $167 million from other programs to cover the cost of services for these new illegal arrivals through December 9, when the current continuing resolution expires.

An email to congressional staff from Barbara Clark of the HHS legislative liaison office, dated November 28, 2016, stated:

Daily referrals of unaccompanied children averaged 247 over the last seven days, and 255 so far in November. For comparison, referrals averaged 185 per day in November of FY 2016 and 64 per day in November of FY 2015. As of November 27, 2016, the number of children in ORR care is approximately 11,200.

A separate email informed congressional offices of HHS Secretary Burwell’s intent to transfer money from other programs to ORR to pay for shelters, health care, schooling, recreation, and other services for the new illegal arrivals, who typically were brought to the border by smugglers paid by their parents, who often are living in the United States illegally.

Continue reading here and see which programs are being robbed to pay for the ‘kids.’

About the map: I was searching for a graph to show how many ‘kids’ (mostly Central American teenage boys, see here) had come in to the U.S. in the most recent years, but every graph I found only went to 2014. So what is up with that!  I figured the map would be a nice addition to the post instead.

By the way, this post is tagged ‘Unaccompanied minors’ because many years ago they were called that and that is how I first tagged the topic.

Latino Coalition applauds Trump’s picks for Secretary of HHS and Transportation

WASHINGTON, D.C.  /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Latino Coalition (TLC), the leading national non-partisan advocacy organization representing Hispanic businesses and consumers, issued the following statement today regarding President-Elect Donald J. Trump’s appointments of Chairman Tom Price, M.D. (R-GA) as Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Elaine Chao as Transportation Secretary:

“The Latino Coalition applauds President-Elect Donald J. Trump’s appointments for Secretary of HHS and Transportation Secretary,” said Hector Barreto, The Latino Coalition Chairman and former U.S. Small Business Administrator.  “The appointments of these two outstanding individuals should give the American people the utmost assurance that the President-Elect is considering only the best for his Cabinet.”

“Chairman Tom Price has been a loyal advocate and remarkable partner of The Latino Coalition.  Price has made health care his life’s work, making him uniquely qualified for the position of Secretary of Health and Human Services.  As an orthopedic surgeon for most of his career, Price knows first-hand what true patient-centered health care should look like. He has been a fierce leader in the development of health policies and he will work arduously to reduce excessive regulatory burdens and repair this nation’s health care system. We urge Dr. Price’s swift confirmation,” Barreto added.

“President-Elect Trump’s nomination of Elaine Chao as Transportation Secretary should be commended,” said Barreto. “Chao’s story is that of the American Dream.  As the first American woman of Asian descent to be appointed to a President’s Cabinet in our nation’s history, Chao achieved great results as Secretary of Labor.  She is not only an exceptional choice with extensive experience in public service that will serve her well; she is a strong leader that will focus on the critical transportation issues needed to ensure U.S. economic growth and prosperity.  We congratulate Elaine and look forward to working with her to strengthen our nation’s infrastructure for years to come.”

A Baby Was Born

Today as I pen this column, it is a Monday in every sense of the word.

Nothing says “Monday” like a return to work after a holiday.

They could have named it Mundane, but that would have been too nice of a word.

If any ordinary Monday could be aptly defined as mundane, then surely the Monday following a holiday must certainly be melancholy. Thus is the ebb and flow of life. No man can stay on the mountaintop forever. Reality seems to come around, you guessed it, on Monday.

Today as I pen this column, a mundane Monday would be bearable.

Today as I pen this column, a Monday that is melancholy would be tolerable, too. I’ve survived forty-three previous years of melancholy Mondays in my life and lived to tell about them–what little I remember as I emerged from a tryptophan stupor. Surely one more wouldn’t kill me, right?

But, this day, this mundane, melancholy Monday, is not satisfied with inflicting the general pain of running out of peanut butter balls and returning to work. Oh no. There is only one adjective that can describe today’s Monday for what it truly is. Mournful. Today is a mournful Monday.

I really cannot recall what I was doing on this date in years past, but somewhere in the world an event took place that has changed my life forever. A baby was born.

This little love came into the world and lived here on earth for exactly eighteen days before a social worker placed the six-pound bundle into my arms. He needed my love while Mama was away.

I can honestly say that I poured my heart into this child, making the good deposit daily. And nightly.

This went on in our household for some ninety days.

When I say that now, it sounds like so little time. I can assure you that ninety days of no sleep is an eternity.

Ninety days of falling in love, day and night, is an eternity.

Ninety days of taking a willing wound for Christ by making this kind of investment despite the knowledge of an impending reunification with his birth Mom is an eternity.

Ninety days with maximum effort and little earthly reward is an eternity.

I said yes anyway.

I said yes when forever “March The 7th” from here unto eternity should be memorialized as the day I died when the social worker pulled him from my arms for his reunification.

Unlike so many of the other foster Moms in my support system, I was blessed enough to see Baby Hopper again in one month’s time. The grief cut deeper still as I held him and realized he was no longer the same child.

I’ll say it. He had detached from my love and attached to his birth Mom. This was the goal all along, wasn’t it? I hated the goal. The goal wasn’t fair to my heart. I wanted my baby back.

Besides having made the good deposit in Hopper, I was also certain that I had given the birth Mom her dignity during the fight of her life. I vowed to God and myself that I would be a minister to not only Hopper, but to her as well. So for this reason, I had to white-knuckle it and tell my heart that though I may love this baby as my own…he is going home to the most important woman in his life. Because of this mindset, the birth Mom vowed that she would keep in touch. And she has.

The contact has not been ideal according to my standards. Originally, I had the skewed vision of becoming a surrogate Grandmother who would assist the birth Mom on a daily basis by picking him up at daycare and buying him new shoes when he needed them—or even when he didn’t. But that was not to be.

Today, I am very thankful of the way things worked out for all of us. I am back working full-time in my business as well as doing a lot more writing than ever before. My heart had a lot to say due to the lessons that could only be absorbed in the wake of an all-consuming agape love that may or may not have been returned.

Nowadays, I might see Hopper when he comes for a visit to my office. His wandering toddler hands grab a hold of my shiny gold loop earring and I cry to his Mama for help.  This time, it is she who rescues me.

Sometimes, I go for weeks and I never hear anything. Sometimes, a video shows up on my iPhone with no words, just moments. From this corner of the world, I witness his first steps. He has overcome his rocky entrance into the world and is now as well adjusted as any other child.  I feel rich, knowing I had a part in his journey to Christ yet to come.

In spite of all the sleepless nights would I do it all again? Yes.

Would I endure the hardship of grief no matter the cost? Yes I would.

When my friends and family ask me why, I know the answer has to be that I took a chance on Hopper’s eternity, the dividends of an investment which only time will tell.

Today as I pen this column, I know that tomorrow will be Tuesday. I reassure my heart that joy comes in the morning; instead, I hear the quiet whisper that says, “Child, remember, joy comes IN the mourning.”

Despite the difficulty of the call, I can trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord Himself, is the Rock eternal. Because of this, I can learn to be content, no matter the circumstances, turning even the most mournful Mondays into something magnificent both now and evermore.

Latest on Scientist who Mainstreamed Pedophilia by Bob Unrah

Alfred Kinsey is known in the United States as the researcher who released the influential books on human sexual behavior in the 1940s and 1950s, regarded as catalysts for the sexual revolution.

The National Institutes of Health notes his studies as a college teacher on the gull wasp failed to earn him a desired promotion, so he jumped on a new academic pursuit of marriage and the family, titillating students with “the mechanics of intercourse” and teaching them that “nearly all so-called sexual perversions fall within the range of biological normality.”

Ultimately, he claimed that children, even infants, are sexual from birth and that the answer to what’s appropriate for human sexuality is just about anything. Even the left-leaning New York Times admitted author James Jones revealed Kinsey “had affairs with men, encouraged open marriages among his staff, stimulated himself with urethral insertion and ropes, and filmed sex in his attic.”

The truth about the man who has been called the “father of the sexual revolution” actually goes beyond that.

reisman-book-coverJudith Reisman, Ph.D., who long has researched Kinsey and his work, has announced that one of her books about Kinsey, “Stolen Honor Stolen Innocence,” is being published later this month in the French language.

It is being published by a pro-family organization in France that called out Kinsey’s work as “a weapon of mass destruction against the family.”

Her book, “Sexual Sabotage,” was published in Croatian in 2014, and another French group is planning to release that work in French in 2017.

Reisman is a scientific adviser to the California Protective Parents Association, former president of the Institute for Media Education and has consulted for four U.S. Department of Justice administrations. She also has worked with the U.S. Department of Education as well as the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and has seen her work translated into many languages.

Her conclusion is that Kinsey almost assuredly violated children sexually and based his writings on the testimony of criminals who sexually assaulted children.

How else, she wonders, would anyone come up with the data in his infamous Table 34?

There, Kinsey claimed that an 11-month-old child experienced 10 orgasms in one hour, another 11-month-old had 14 in 38 minutes, a 2-year-old child had 11 in 65 minutes, a 4-year-old had 26 in 24 hours. A 10-year-old had 14 in the same time, and a 12-year-old had three in three minutes. Because someone wasn’t sure of those results, the experiment was repeated on the 12-year-old, who then reportedly experienced nine in two hours.

According to David Kupelian, author of “The Marketing of Evil,” Reisman found Table 34 “purports to be a scientific record of ‘multiple orgasm in pre-adolescent males.’”

Wrote Kupelian: “Reisman wondered: How did Kinsey and his associates obtain this ‘research’ that infants as young as five months of age enjoyed sex? Child sexual abuse is a felony – how could such research be conducted legally? Why had nobody raised this issue before?”

Reisman herself explained: “Kinsey solicited and encouraged pedophiles, at home and abroad, to sexually violate from 317 to 2,035 infants and children for his alleged data on normal ‘child sexuality.’ Many of the crimes against children (oral and anal sodomy, genital intercourse and manual abuse) committed for Kinsey’s research are quantified in his own graphs and charts.”

In a commentary, Reisman and Mary McAlister wrote that the Kinsey Institute at Indiana University still is protecting Kinsey’s legacy, acting as a purveyor of his research, with the latest developments including reports the university was caught paying $200 for parts of aborted infants.

“This is the legacy of Alfred Kinsey,” they wrote. “While Kinsey’s work is lauded and quoted by the elites of American law and academia, other nations are beginning to understand Kinsey’s malevolent impact on the world’s people.”

Her work to expose Kinsey’s disturbing activities has included “Kinsey: Crimes & Consequences,” “Sexual Revolution” and “Stolen Honor, Stolen Innocence.”

And it’s making an impact. After she provided information in a trial, Croatia’s high court stunned sex-education experts by rejecting curriculum based on the work of Kinsey.

judithoneShe had pointed out that Kinsey’s two books, known as the “Kinsey Reports,” were “based on a nonrepresentative group of Americans – including hundreds of sex offenders, prostitutes, prison inmates and exhibitionists.”

Reisman documents how some of Kinsey’s conclusions were based on data from serial pedophiles.

“Prisoners, prostitutes, homosexuals ‘1,400 sex offenders,’ ‘feeble minded’ and other such World War II ‘stay-at-home’ persons, rounded out the men who were to represent the average American.”

Explained Reisman: “Planned Parenthood (Margaret Sanger was a colleague) and legal power elitists joined arms to, as the French organization said, destroy the family, to merchandize and objectify women and children as products.

“That merchandizing is now coming full circle as unborn babies are divided and sold to the highest bidder at illustrious universities. This moral abyss has devolved naturally into live babies increasingly being sexual victimized by peers and pedophiles.”

table34

She called on Congress to begin an investigation of Indiana University and its Kinsey Institute, and, if it is appropriate, to begin prosecutions.

“There still are victims, well over 80 years [old], willing to testify to their Kinsey-monitored child rapes, with cinema, to investigators. Such ‘scientific’ child sex abuse that reshaped law and public policy, should be at least as important as the sex abuse by Catholic clergy,” she wrote.

“The children of Table 34, and the millions of victims of the mantra, ‘children are sexual from birth’ finally deserve justice! We must at last know the truth of why and how we came to be a culture of adulterated adults, merchandisable children and exchangeable individuals. ”

Reisman has lectured at Princeton, Notre Dame, Georgetown, Pepperdine, Johns Hopkins, the FBI, the U.S. Air Force Academy, the University of Jerusalem, the University of Haifa and Tel Aviv University. She has been cited by the London Times, Time, Newsweek, the New York Times and the Washington Post. She has appeared on “Entertainment Tonight,” “Larry King Live,” “Donahue,” the “Today” show and “Crossfire.”

She’s been listed in “The World’s Who’s Who of Women.”
