Trans Powerlifter Stripped of Records for Women's Weightlifting

Quote:
After further review, the Powerlifting Federation has decided that Austin Powers was right all along: She's a man, baby.
A transgender powerlifter named Mary Gregory recently "dominated" the field at a Powerlifting Federation competition last month, smashing four world records for that weight class in the process. This had the actual women competing in the event understandably upset and protests were lodged. But after an investigation was conducted, the federation chairman posted an announcement saying that the record lifts were being taken off the books.
The chairman decided the women's category was for, get this, biological women and not for men "identifying" as female: "Our rules, and the basis of separating genders for competition, are based on physiological classification rather than identification."

What a concept.

A New Way to Deal With Green Oligarchs

Quote:
As it stands today, more than half of the Democratic candidates for president support the Green New Deal, a “deeply ambitious” plan that backers say would bring America to “net-zero” carbon pollution by the middle of the century.

While the Green New Deal is framed as a selfless effort to save the planet, it is really just another political hustle. One need look no further than at the monied interests behind the bill to see that Democratic donors get the goldmine and the rest of the country gets the shaft.
Bold mine.

Oh, gee, there's a surprise...

Bill Nye Dismisses Green New Deal Cost: 'The Planet's on F**king Fire... Nothing's Free You Idiots'

Quote:
On Sunday, actor and activist Bill Nye — known as "the science guy" — dismissed the high cost of the Green New Deal with a cheap stunt: lighting a globe on fire.

"By the end of this century, if emissions keep rising, the average temperature on earth could go up another four to eight degrees," Nye declared on the HBO show Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. "What I’m saying is the planet’s on f**king fire. There are a lot of things we could do to put it out. Are any of them free? No, of course not, nothing’s free, you idiots."

"Grow the f**k up. You’re not children anymore," Nye added, directing his message toward millennials who grew up watching his show Bill Nye the Science Guy. "I didn’t mind explaining photosynthesis to you when you were twelve, but you’re adults now and this is an actual crisis. Got it?"
Bold mine.

The iron...

What Could Possibly Go Wrong? AOC Wants a Government Bank Operated by the Post Office

Quote:
Imagine a big government boondoggle with the disorganization of a poorly-run non-profit organization and "customer service" that treats customers like driver's license applicants at the DMV. That's how Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) wants banking to work.

America's most infamous former bartender proposed this idea with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the runner-up for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

"We should have a not-for-profit public option for basic banking services, and we should be piloting these projects through the U.S. Postal Service," Ocasio-Cortez said, apparently with no irony.
Bold mine.

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HA!!!!!

Ocasio-Cortez Walks Back Claim on World Ending in 12 years

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) on Sunday attempted to downplay her claim that the world will end in 12 years unless Congress acts on climate change by mocking Republicans and saying, "You’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal."
Coincidently, an order of magnitude more than yer average Prog...

The dangerous doctrine of equity

Quote:
A friend in Vancouver, a reasonable slightly center-left guy I’ve known for four decades, pointed me to this article by Jordan Peterson, which was published in the Vancouver Sun. He added that he entirely agreed with it and asked, “Who could possibly disagree with what Peterson is saying?”
The mantra of Diversity, Inclusivity and Equity (DIE) perhaps constitutes the primary identifying factor of the tiny minority of radical collectivist ideologues that nonetheless have come to dominate the humanities and social sciences in Western universities (and, increasingly, the HR departments of corporations). Of these three, equity is the most egregious, self-righteous, historically-ignorant and dangerous. “Equity” is a term designed to signal “equality,” in some manner, and is a term designed to appeal to the natural human tendency toward fairness, but it does not mean the classic equality of the West, which is equality before the law and equality of opportunity.

Equality before the law means that each citizen will be treated fairly by the criminal justice and judicial systems regardless of their status — and that the state recognizes that each individual has an intrinsic value which serves as a limit to state power, and which the polity must respect. There is likely no more fundamental presumption grounding our culture.

Halal Meat Only at UK Subway

Quote:
British readers are encouraged to enjoy beer while they can. It may disappear even before Muslims achieve a demographic majority. Already ham and bacon are on the way out. Years ago, Subway started replacing them with halal substitutes in many UK outlets out of submission to Islam:
It has confirmed turkey ham and turkey rashers will be used instead in 185 of its stores, where all the meat will now be prepared according to halal rules.
People who like ham and bacon aren’t the only ones called upon to suffer for the sake of dhimmitude. Preparing meat according to the barbarous dictates of Islam entails cutting the animal’s throat and letting it bleed to death.

No worries, PETA; Subway says the animals are stunned first to reduce suffering.

However, Islamic scholars say Allah wants the animals to be conscious, so the stunning may have to end.

Yet one more reason why the compassionate, intellectual left doesn't want to talk about the Colorado school shooter.

Did You See This, Or Did The Media Successfully Hide It From You? Father of Transgender Colorado School Shooter Is An Illegal Alien Deported Twice For Spousal Abuse

Quote:
You guys probably already saw this in Jake "Cucks Love Me" Tapper's twitter feed.

The father of a Colorado school shooting suspect was deported twice and had a history of domestic violence, according to records obtained by Daily Mail.

Jose Evis Quintana, father of shooting suspect Maya "Alec" McKinney, is a Mexican national and was deported on April 21, 2017 and on Dec. 9, 2010, Daily Mail reported.
Weird how this is one of the few school shootings the media doesn't want to mount Town Hall political rallies around, huh?
Bold mine.

Nails it.

Yep. Canada Post wants that too. That way we could have banking until 4:00 pm, and none at all during strikes and work-to-rule.

One more example of Gates having very little in common with Musk.

“Do you guys on Wall Street have something in your desks that makes steel?
