Trump 2016 and The Black Vote, Opportunity Vs Continued Bondage

Black Vote-Critical for the Future of Blacks

Image result for trump and the balck vote

LA Times on Black Polling (1): 

Trump Jumps to 19.6% from 3%

Clinton Drops to 71.4% from 90.4%

 

https://i2.wp.com/blackdemographics.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Black-Party-Affiliation-and-Vote-Patterns.jpgCan Trump get 32% of the Black Vote and Return to the 1960 Level?

Wonder why the Clinton campaign is pulling out all of the black race baiters to attack Trump and has resurrected the Clinton initiated “Obama Birther” issue?  Hillary is losing in the lower and middle-income black communities where they have seen first hand the devastation of inner-city leftist policies. 

As the first Black President, Obama received 95% then 93% of the black vote in 2008 and 2012 respectively.  Hillary is not the first Black President and in fact has mocked the Blacks time and time again with her phony accents and hot sauce routine!.  She never even mentioned the plight of the Black inner-city communities until Trump stepped on her voting block!  Oh sure, she gave phony lip service to Black Lives Matter as a divisionary tactic perfected by Obama to keep the wedge between the Black and White communities. 

But, what has Hillary done in the past or on this campaign to rectify the 50% illiteracy rates in Chicago, Detroit and elsewhere in the Black inner-cities.  NOTHING.  She is deep in the pocket of the National Education Association union that fosters the “keep them in the ghetto” policies of the left. 

What the left has underestimated is the innate intelligence in the Black Community that is saying “ENOUGH”. 

“We don’t Have Anything to Lose Voting for Trump!

Fasten your seat belts as every Black Race Baiter and Black Caucus member will be out demonizing Trump so as not to lose their power over the Black constituency.  But, Blacks want the same thing Whites, Hispanics, Muslims, Gays, Asians and every other human being wants, Freedom and the chance to live a fulfilled life and raise their families in peace and security.

Should be an interesting 49 Days!

PS:  Hillary came out today and said that she will have a conversation with the Whites.  Breitbart’s Charles Spierling reported earlier today: “We gotta tackle the systemic racism, this horrible shooting again, how many times do we have to see this in our country?” she said in an appearance on the Steve Harvey show. Clinton was specifically referring to the police shooting of Terence Crutcher in Tulsa, Oklahoma, saying he had his “hands in the air” when he was killed.”  This shooting may or may not have been justified but should be a matter for the justice system, not pandering politicians and race baiters, to try in the media.

  Without racism and the other “isms” and “phobes”, the left can’t win.  Time to Re-Unite and take back our Country!

Washington DC vs Donald Trump (We the People)

Did Ryan and McConnell Rail Against Obama & Clinton

In 2011 When they PAUSED IMMIGRATION

of Muslims From Iraq?

The Obama Administration Stopped Processing Iraq Refugee Requests For 6 Months In 2011

No They Did Not!

But, They Think Trump’s Pause Is

“Not Who We Are?

When Did Protecting Americans,

Including Muslim-Americans & LGBT Americans, Become “Not Who We Are?”

Obama/Clinton shut down Muslim Immigration from Iraq following a breakdown of their vetting process that allowed two terrorists to enter the US and settle in Kentucky (WAKE UP MC CONNELL)  The State Department stated in 2011:

(1)  As a result of the Kentucky case, (allowing 2 terrorist to come in as refugees) the State Department stopped processing Iraq refugees for six months in 2011, federal officials told ABC News – even for many who had heroically helped U.S. forces as interpreters and intelligence assets. One Iraqi who had aided American troops was assassinated before his refugee application could be processed, because of the immigration delays, two U.S. officials said.

The Obama/Clinton vetting failure was called out by one of our Generals:   

“How did a person who we detained in Iraq — linked to an IED attack, we had his fingerprints in our government system — how did he walk into America in 2009?”

So, why the outrage by Obama, Clinton, Ryan, and McConnell who are all railing against Trump when he calls for a PAUSE in the Syrian Refugee Program and Visa Immigration from known terrorists supported countries.

OCRM-VTrump

The only answer can be is that the OCRM team agree with each other that a European Style Open Border/Immigration policy is what the United States should be engaged in and that Radical Islamism cannot be discussed so as not to alienate our “allies”!  How is this policy working out for Europe!!! 

If Ryan and McConnell continue to call out Trump for his Defence of American First they, not Trump, will cause the Republican Party to lose the House and Senate in 2016.  They are on the wrong side of History.

Isn’t there anyone in the House or Senate will stand and tell Ryan and McConnell to sit down, shut up, and defend Trump?  We the People are no longer behind you when you are wrong.  Either get on board with America First or move out-of-the-way.

Time to Call Your Senators and Representatives…

#NeverTrump + Hillary = Radical Islamic “Death to America”

50 Killed In Orlando Florida By and Islamic Terrorist

Hillary/Obama Will Not Call It Islamic Terrorism

Death Hillary Never Trump#NeverTrump Crowd Is Trying to Assure a Hillary Victory

And Condemn Americans to Death!

It is one thing for Mitt Romney, Bill Kristol and their cohorts to try to defeat Donald Trump, but it is another thing to throw the election to Hillary Clinton will continue to get Americans killed at the hand of Islamic Terrorism.  If Romney/Kristol did not know better, you may be able to excuse their idiotic obsession with Trump. 

But, they should know that if they get traction in their #NeverTrump crusade, and Hillary is elected, then Americans will continue to die at an alarming rate and we will lose the Supreme Court to Progressives/Socialists for the next 3-4 generations.

#NeverTrump is Tantamount to Treason, Period

Anyone, yes anyone, who does not call these idiots out as traitors to our great nation are accomplishes to their crime.  It is hard to believe that the Republican Party could have had a candidate like Mitt Romney who has such disdain for the Republican Party and the Republican Voters, and the safety of this nation and its citizens. 

Everyone in the GOP should stand shoulder to shoulder and say

ENOUGH MITT! 

Cease and desist!

Radical Islamist/Sharia Conservatives, Gays S/B Exterminated

Wake UP LGBT Community

This is Not An Isolated Incident-You are Being Targeted

I have written time and time again warning the LGBT community to wake up and understand the threat to their very existence.  That threat is from Islamic/Sharia conservative beliefs that has even been codified in the laws and constitutions of various Islamic Nations.  In 1991, Iran added the following to their constitution: 

Sodomy is a crime, for which both partners are punished. The punishment is death if the participants are adults, of sound mind and consenting; the method of execution is for the Shari’a judge to decide.

The previous President of Iran claimed that there are no homosexuals in Iran.  He is correct, when found, they are quickly executed.

ISIS recently released videos of gays being thrown off of roof tops as a method of exterminating gays! 

ISIS Gays

The LGBT community is foolishly clinging to the US Progressive False Narrative that there is no such thing as Islamic Radicalism and that Sharia Law is an acceptable parallel legal system to our US Constitution and our Judicial System.  Why, because the Left has collected disparate groups like the LBGT and are trying to create a politically monolithic power structure.  Unfortunately, Radical Islam and the LGBT are diametrically opposed due to Sharia conservatism.  The members of the LGBT community will lose this fight and be exterminated whenever the radical Islamists choose to do so!

The LGBT community needs to stop focusing on “Christian Opposition” to the LGBT lifestyles and gay marriage. 

Not baking a wedding cake or providing flowers for a gay wedding is not quite the same thing as the mass extermination of individuals based on their LGBT group affiliation. 

The LGBT Community needs to get behind the Republican Presidential Candidate, Donald Trump and create a safe environment for US citizens first.  Unfortunately today’s attack in Orlando reminds us that the ultimate Civil Right is Life. 

Radical Islamists/Sharia Conservatives are committed to the extermination of LBGT individuals… 

Wake Up!

SCOTUS – Replacement for Congress?

Stop Relying on the Supreme Court to Create Law!

congress

Gutless Wonders In Congress Shirk Their Duty to Legislate and Duck their Responsibility and the Possible Ire of their Constituents by Allowing 9 Unelected Judges to Create Law by Fiat!

 

It is the Job of Congress Alone

U.S. Constitution; Article 1, Section 1

All legislative (having the power to make laws:) Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

The Supreme Court has NO Constitutional Authority to “Legislate”, Period!

U.S. Constitution; Article 3, Section 1.

The judicial Power (1) of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish. The Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behaviour, and shall, at stated Times, receive for their Services, a Compensation, which shall not be diminished during their Continuance in Office.

SCOTUS RESTRICTED ROLE:  The courts below the Supreme Court, inferior courts, are created and maintained solely by Congress.  In 1803, a famous case, Marbury v Madison, formed the basis for the exercise of judicial review in the United States (constitutionality) under Article III. This Supreme Court decision helped define the boundary between the constitutionally separate executive and judicial branches.  CONGRESS STILL HAS THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY AND CONSTITUTIONAL ROLE TO LEGISLATE, CREATE NEW LAW OR MODIFY EXISTING LAW. 

The Supreme Court, or any inferior court, can only judge whether a Constitutionally created law, passed by Congress and signed by the President, is in conformance with or does not violate any Constitutional authorities granted to the Congress by the Constitution, amendments thereto, or governing law.  Any law found to be unconstitutional, at the discretion of the Congress, must be modified by the Congress alone and submitted to the President for approval.  The court cannot, and should not, but has, actually modified the original language of a law by interpreting the language in the law to suit the court.  This is not legal right of the court and has been labeled “Judicial Activism” (2). 

Congress Needs to Pass Real Legislation Dealing with:

  • Freedom of Religion Protection under the 1st Amendment Against Government Overreach on Healthcare.

  • Define Life as beginning at Conception.

  • Pass a real school choice law allowing parents to use vouchers to send their children to a school of their choice.

  • Clarification of LGBT rights Vs the Religious Liberty of individuals.

  • Get the Government out of our Rest Rooms, Showers and Changing rooms.

  • Revise Title 7 and 9 that control schools and universities receiving Federal Funds to get the government out of the day-to-day operations of these institution.

  • Individual Employee Rights Vs Unions Rights regarding dues and Union political activism.

  • Disallow Environmentalists’ “standing in court” to bring lawsuits on behalf of the environment.

  • Mandate that all laws passed by Congress cannot exempt Congress or its members from its provisions.

  • Mandate that all laws passed by Congress, and any resulting regulation, that require funds to be expended to implement the law, be fully paid for by the Federal Government.  (Eliminates unfunded mandates)

  • Create a national standard for Voter IDs to ensure that Federal Elections are properly controlled.

  • Clarify 2nd Amendment protections by creating national “carry permits”; eliminate State and Local taxes designed to restrict gun or ammunition ownership; create Federal restrictions on gun ownership for the mentally impaired.

  • Pass common sense political contribution reform and eliminate PACs and Super PACS.  All persons, including individuals, corporations, LLCs, Unions, tax exempt organizations, can only contribute $1,000 per candidate or initiative. 

  • Require that the President submit and the Congress pass an Annual Budget or the executive and legislative elected officials and staff do not get paid until it is passed.

  • Require that the annual budget be prepared and approved using zero based budgeting and eliminate automatic increases.

  • Require all regulations that have been created undergo a cost-benefit analysis, and then be reviewed by Congress before it is put into effect. 

  • Etcetera!  You get the point.

Otherwise, Our Nation and Our Culture will be Dictated by 9 Unelected People! 

The point being is that Congress needs to step up and do its job as the Founding Fathers intended.  Since Obama was elected, Congress has shirked its duties and stopped passing budgets, allowed SCOTUS to modify legislation that the Congress should have done through the legislative process, and have allowed the President to create legislation via executive fiat.  Congress has the power of the purse and impeachment to use against an out-of-control Executive Branch and they must step up and exercise their duties as prescribed by the Constitution or we all lose. 

We cannot be dictated to by a President, or 9 unelected individuals on the Supreme Court. 

We need to get back to the basics and start acting like a real country again!

((1)Judicial Power is defined as Authority, both constitutional and legal, given to the courts and its judges (1) to preside over and render judgment on court-worthy cases; (2) to enforce or void statutes and laws when scope or constitutionality are questioned (3) to interpret statutes and laws when disputes arise.)

(2) Case in point was when SCOTUS ruled that the individual mandate to purchase a Obamacare policy was in fact a TAX which is lawful for the Congress to levy rather than an individual mandated payment which is a violation of the Congressional authority under the Constitution.  Chief Justice rewrote Obamacare regarding the mandates when he concluded that: “Part III-B that the individual mandate must be construed as imposing a tax on those who do not have health insurance, if such a construction is reasonable.”  It is not reasonable! This all the while the Obama Administration, who helped create the bill, maintained that the individual mandate was NOT A TAX, because it did not meet the Constitution’s definition of what taxes could be levied by the Congress.  Roberts must have “divined” that Obama had a mental lapse and didn’t mean what he said!

Obama-248 Days Left Of the Destruction of Our Republic

50% of Those Polled Approve of Obama’s Performance!

Really!

2016 Presidential Campaign Allowing Obama to

“Fundamentally Transform America”

While We Are Not Watching

King Obama

The Buzz today is about discussing Donald Trump’s love life from 30 years ago!  Really?  

Obama and the Main Stream Media (MSM)  will do and say anything to distract us from seeing that Obama has literally redefined America.  We, including our elected Republican officials in Washington DC, have done nothing to stop him.  Here are a few of Obama’s “Accomplishments“:

  • Completely weakened the financial fabric of this nation by driving up our debt to $20 Trillion.

  • Exploding our welfare assistance to illegal and legal immigrants and eliminating our borders entirely.

  • Emasculated the breadth of our banking system and consolidated our financial institutions to the detriment of the consumers.

  • Ruining higher education by taking over Student Loans and driving the cost of higher education through to roof enslaving our students through a life of debt owed to the almighty government.

  • Gave Iran a clear path to create and possess nuclear weapons and provided $150 Billion to help finance their creation and subsidize Iranian terror networks.

  • Giving Iraq and Syria to Iran with his hands off policy in Syria and his allowing Iraq to fall into political and military disarray through his hands off policy with ISIS. 

  • Giving Iran a clear path to complete its missile arsenal with which to deliver its soon to be completed nuclear weapons.

  • Allowed Iran to intimidate our navy by capturing and detaining one of our ships in international waters.

  • Destabilized Libya by taking out Qadhafi and destroying its governing infrastructure leaving it for ISIS and other nefarious organizations to pick at its carcass. 

  • Allowing China to “annex” the South China Sea without resistance nor repercussions.

  • Allowing Russia to intimidate our military with low flyovers and close encounters with our ships and aircraft.

  • Giving North Korea a clear path to complete their nuclear arms and ballistic missile programs.

  • Allowing Central and Eastern Africa to become a cesspool of terror and unrest.

  • Transformed cultural norms such as traditional marriage by his advocacy of same-sex marriage giving SCOTUS a clear path to overturn DOMA and a millennia of cultural tradition.

  • Literally destroying the American Health Care System with Obamacare.

  • Using Obamacare to destroy the Freedom of Religion to force religious institutions to conform with Obamacare mandates regardless of their long-held religious objections to abortions, birth control, and sex reassignment procedures.  Euthanasia next?

  • Using Title IX and Title VII, redefined bathroom, changing room and shower access to be wide open to all genders.

  • Setting the stage to force the private sector to allow transgender individuals to use restrooms, changing rooms or other typically gender restricted areas as they wish ignoring the risk to the innocent by pedophiles and sex offenders.

  • Undermining our civil order by making continuous disparaging remarks about our police and other law enforcement officials and using the DOJ to interfere with local law enforcement.

  • Inciting riotous behavior by siding with anarchistic organizations such as Occupy and Black Lives Matter.

  • Creating open borders and open immigration policies that are destroying the cultural fabric of our nation.

Still Think Obama Does Not Know What He Is Doing!

Unfortunately, the list is virtually endless as everyday more and more of our liberties are lost, our economic prosperity driven into the oblivion of debt, and our moral fiber destroyed.  Race relations, due to Obama’s constant race baiting tactics, are at their worst since the 1960’s.  The plight of Blacks and other inner city minorities is dismal with Black on Black crime escalating exponentially.   Obama blames law enforcement and the bias of the justice system!

So, when you hear or see the MSM focusing on silly issues like Trump’s love life when he was single, stop and ask, “What is the Administration and the Media trying to Hide”?  The MSM has become one big reality show meant to distract and mislead the public.  Unfortunately, we are too easily duped into thinking that what we are going through is “NORMAL”!  It isn’t! 

This Election is Vital to this Nation’s Survival. 

While some on the right are chanting the #nevertrump mantra, Obama and the left keep on destroying what is left of this republic.  Hillary, if she is able to run, or for that matter any Democrat (or socialist) candidate for president, will continue to take this nation down the path of progressive annihilation.

You may not like some of the things Donald Trump says or does. 

But, It Is Trump Or The Fall of America.

Gender Identity Vs Sexual Predatory Behavior

Are you as confused as I have been regarding transgender restroom & shower facilities rights versus the need to maintain public safety, especially for children?

Do you have any idea how many Americans identify as transgender individuals? 

Do you know what the terms gender identity, transgender, transsexual, genderqueer, bigender, pangender, genderfluid, agender, or transvestite/cross-dressers? 

This may come under the heading of “TMI” but you need to be conversant on these terms as this phenomena appears to be creeping into the national debate, the 2016 electi0ns, and a bathroom near you or your child’s school campus!

Let’s Start with the Easier Parts of this Debate. 

How Many People Identify as Transgender?  Efforts have been made since 2000 to try to determine how many transgender individuals there are in the US.  Part of the issue lies in which definition of transgender is applied and how the survey is conducted.  Survey estimates range from .05% to .3% of the US population identifying as transgender.  This equates to 175,000 to 1,050,000 transgender people in the US.   

What Gender Identity terms are used today to describe various individuals? 

Note, many of these definitions were supplied by American Psychological Association (APA)

  • Transgender & Transsexual:  Are people who experience a mismatch between their gender identity or gender expression, and their sex at birth.  (Can also include Transsexual, Genderqueer, Bigender, Pangender, Genderfluid, and Agender.)

 

  • Transvestite/Cross Dresser:  This person cross-dresses, or dresses in clothes associated with the opposite gender then the one they were assigned at birth. 

  • LGBT:  This stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender.  The “LGB” portion of this acronym indicates SEXUAL PREFERENCE, and not a sexual identity.  The “LGB” and the “T” bear no relationship to one another other than the Gay-Lesbian groups have included the Transgender “victims” to bolster their ranks. 

Do Not Confuse the Issues or the Discussion of Transgender “rights” with those of lesbians, gay, or bi-sexual persons.

Before we move on, we should define a couple of terms associated with Sexual Predatory Behavior.  (No association is made here with transgender people)

  • Pedophilia is a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children.

  • Sexual Predators includes persons trying to make sexual contact with another person in a “predatory” or abusive manner. Sexual Predators include people who commit sex crimes, such as rape or child sexual abuse, are commonly referred to as sexual predators.

Transgender RRThe Transgender Public & School Rest Room & Bathing Facility Issues

Activist Transgender Position:  They believe that they should be able to use restroom or shower facilities based on their own perception of whether they are male or female regardless of their birth gender or their current gender assignment post hormone treatments and/or surgery.  Public policy may have to differentiate between the two.

Public’s Position:  Society has the right to insist that persons using gender designated restrooms and bathing facilities, according to their own biological gender, and not to share these facilities with those who do not identify with their own biological gender?  Non Transgender people represent a minimum of 99.997% of the total population while the Transgender people represent from .05% to .3% of the total population.  Society has the right to protect its citizens against sexual predators and pedophiles who would use the open access to restrooms and shower facilities to legally enter restrooms of the opposite sex for nefarious reasons. 

Top Question:  Is Transgenderism a Mental Disorder?

Pro: (Note:  The LGBT and American Psychiatric Association disagree strongly with Dr. McHugh’s findings and conclusions.  But, Johns Hopkins is one of the few institutions who actually studied transgenderism for any length of time so I thought it may be helpful in this discussion) 

If a person has difficulty accepting their birth gender as reality, is this a physical or mental issue?  Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins Hospital and its former psychiatrist-in-chief stated “…that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.” 

In an article in the Wall Street Journal he elaborated by stating that “…transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption’” – the notion that their maleness or femaleness is different than what nature assigned to them biologically.” 

McHugh went on to say:  “The pro-transgender advocates do not want to know that studies show between 70% and 80% of children who express transgender feelings “spontaneously lose those feelings” over time. Also, for those who had sexual reassignment surgery, most said they were “satisfied” with the operation “but their subsequent psycho-social adjustments were no better than those who didn’t have the surgery.”

Con:  The American Psychiatric Association does not agree and believes that Transgenderism is not a mental disorder.  Their website states: “A psychological state is considered a mental disorder only if it causes significant distress or disability. Many transgender people do not experience their gender as distressing or disabling, which implies that identifying as transgender does not constitute a mental disorder.  For these individuals, the significant problem is finding affordable resources, such as counseling, hormone therapy, medical procedures and the social support necessary to freely express their gender identity and minimize discrimination. Many other obstacles may lead to distress, including a lack of acceptance within society, direct or indirect experiences with discrimination, or assault. These experiences may lead many transgender people to suffer with anxiety, depression or related disorders at higher rates than nontransgender persons.”

It is obvious that there are polarized positions among psychiatric professionals regarding whether Transgenderism is a mental disorder or a physical misalignment between a person’s brain and his or her reproductive organs that can be cured with hormones and/or surgery. 

The APA’s position basically says that if transgender people are not experiencing any distress due to gender identity, then medical treatment may not be necessary.  If their birth gender identity is causing them distress, then hormone therapy and/or surgery, based on the individual’s gender identity, may be called for. Further that the procedures have been successful with practically all of the patients reporting both good mental and physical health post-op. 

Dr. McHugh disagreed with this position and stated that even those who underwent gender reassignment surgery, and who were happy with the surgery, had the same psycho-social adjustment problems that those who did not undergo surgery!  Others who have undergone the gender reassignment surgery disagree with Dr. McHugh.

Missing Link:  What the APA nor other institutions have not tested or studied to any meaningful degree, is giving the person presenting as a Transgender hormones and therapy that match their biological gender!  The assumption has been made that someone not identifying with their gender should be changed to the mental perception of their gender rather than to the physical fact of their gender.  Simply stated, a male identifying as a female would be given testosterone treatments and a women identifying as a male would be given estrogen treatments.  Associated psychiatric counseling would be required to insure that the person’s mental well being is being monitored.

Sexual Predators & The Restroom/Shower Facilities Issue

There is no doubt that society has to protect children and women from being subjected to sexual predators and pedophiles while using public, private and school restrooms and/or shower facilities.  There cannot be any disagreement with this. 

The issues are:

(These examples use men as the possible predators but you can substitute women as the predators although the incidence of female sexual predators is much less than for males)

  • If you allow men, who claim they identify as a women, to use the “Women’s” restroom, how do you preclude a sexual predator or pedophile, from falsely claiming that they identify as a  woman and have a right to enter?   Women and girls may be present in the restroom.

  • If an adolescent schoolboy identifies as a girl, should the schoolboy be allowed to use the “girl’s” shower and restroom facilities?  In this instance there may be a low physical threat to the girls.  But, is the co-mingling of boys and girls in shower and restroom facilities acceptable in our society? 

  • If you allow men, who claim they identify as a women, to use the public showering facilities designated for women, how do you preclude a sexual predator from falsely claiming that they identify as a woman and have a right to enter?  Women and girls may be present in the shower facilities.

Needed Public Policy:

Live and Let Live-Before the Courts Intervened:  John Hayward wrote in Breitbart last week the following observation:  “Moreover, Americans have already solved the problem: They just politely ignore the fact that public bathrooms are quietly used by transsexuals–both those who look like the other sex and those who really don’t look like the other sex. That decent-minded, live-and-let-live compromise means Americans don’t have to pretend that men are women, and they can call the police if they feel threatened, for example, when a transsexual wants to use a changing room in a school.”

Progressive Activism:  But, the reality is that the progressive supporters of the LBGT/gay marriage are going to attempt to force unfettered access by transgender persons to whatever restroom, bathing or changing rooms they wish.  They are coming off of victories in gay marriage and are off on their next quest.  There is no acceptable middle ground to the progressive left nor will they support alternative medical approaches and procedures in dealing with the transgender condition.

The Courts and the Mississippi and North Carolina State Response:  Recent court cases are forcing schools and public access facilities to allow transgender persons to be able to choose the gender designated restrooms, changing rooms and shower facilities of their choice based on their own perception of their gender.  This caused North Carolina and Mississippi State governments to pass legislation that ties the access to gender designated facilities to the gender of the person at birth who wishes to use those facilities.  The left claims that this is discrimination against transgender persons without regard for public safety. 

Federal Vs State Laws Needed?

Since the lower courts have intervened and decided that gender specific facilities have to be open to all, the only way to protect women, children, and men who may become subjected to abuse by sexual predators and pedophiles who will seek to take advantage of this openness, is through legislation.  Once again it is sad that we cannot engage in an open and honest debate on the best approach to this issue. 

Once again, it is doubtful that our Gutless Congress will attempt to address this issue.  It will be left to individual States to protect the 99.97% of our population against sexual predators and pedophiles!. 

Sadly, this will result in a fragmented remedial approach with each State codifying the remedy in possibly different ways.  There will be some of the liberal States who may seek to adopt “Open Facilities” legislation leaving the nation with a hodgepodge of gender specific facility laws.  Be that as it may, here are a couple of possible approaches to protecting those who may have been made vulnerable to abuse because of these court decisions.

  1. Schools:

    1. Gender Definition:  The gender of the student would be the birth gender of the student unless the student has undergone treatment and surgery to change his or her gender, and the parents have had the gender of the child legally changed.

    2. Restrooms:  Gender specific restrooms should be restored and only those who are biologically the same as the restroom designation should be allowed.  If a student is identified as possibly being a transgender adolescent by the parents to the administration, at the parents request, the administration should make an effort to allow that student to use restrooms that have been set aside in the faculty lounge area or other suitable restroom that is not being used by the other students.  The student has the option to use the gender designated restroom that is the same as their biological gender and utilize the segregated stalls. 

    3. Non-Private Shower and Changing Areas:  Gender specific non-private shower and changing area should be restored and only those biologically the same with the shower and changing area designation should be allowed.  If a student is identified as possibly being a transgender adolescent by the parents to the administration, at the parents request, the administration should excuse the student from activities that would require him or her from using the shower or changing areas; or, if available, other facilities could be designated for the student’s use.

  2. Public Restrooms, Bathing Facilities and Changing Rooms: 

    1. Gender Definition:  The gender of the person would be the birth gender of the person unless they have undergone treatment and surgery to change his or her gender, and the person has had his or her gender legally changed.

    2. Restrooms:  Gender specific restrooms should be restored and only those who are biologically the same as the restroom designation should be allowed.  The person has the option to use the gender designated restroom that is the same as their biological gender and utilize the segregated stalls. 

    3. Non-Private Shower and Changing Areas:  Gender specific non-private shower and changing area should be restored and only those biologically the same with the shower and changing area designation should be allowed.  

It is doubtful that this issue will be resolved anytime soon.  At some point, since Congress will never act, this issue will be decided, poorly, by 9 men and women in black robes at the Supreme Court.
