Female prisoner claims she was raped by transgender inmate, sues prison

Quote:
A female inmate at the Logan Correctional Centre in Illinois is suing the prison after alleging they attempted to cover up her sexual assault by a transgender inmate that was housed with her.

The proceedings were covered by Public Broadcasting Service station WTTW, who reported the victim, referred to as Jane Doe, was sexually assaulted in June 2019. Doe alleges she was then coerced by a correctional officer into withdrawing her claim, which led to her being punished for having filed a false report under the Prison Rape Elimination Act.

Doe’s alleged assailant is named as Janiah Monroe, a transgender inmate who identifies as female but has male genitalia. According to WTTW, Monroe and another transgender inmate recently sued the Illinois Department of Corrections, demanding transfers to women’s facilities. Monroe, formerly known as Andre Patterson, had been sentenced to 12 years in prison for the attempted murder of a government employee, before receiving an additional 20 years for murdering a cellmate after being imprisoned.

I jes' luvs it when the left eats its own.

‘I’m coming out, I’m leaving the Left.’ LGBT/Women’s advocate Arielle Scarcella speaks out against ‘ridiculously woke cult’ in video (watch)

Quote:
Arielle Scarcella’s Twitter bio says she empowers women, LGBT, and is not of the hive mind which is actually quite refreshing.

She has also decided to ‘come out’ and leave the Left.

Her video is honestly quite hilarious and spectacular all in one.

The Perverse Panic over Plastic

Quote:
Why do our political leaders want to take away our plastic bags and straws? This question is even more puzzling than a related one that I’ve been studying for decades: Why do they want us to recycle our garbage?

The two obsessions have some common roots, but the moral panic over plastic is especially perverse.
More:

Quote:
After painstakingly analyzing debris in the north central Pacific Ocean, where converging currents create the “Great Pacific Garbage Patch,” a team of scientists from four continents reported in 2018 that more than half the plastic came from fishing boats—mostly discarded nets and other gear. These discards are also the greatest threat to marine animals, who die not from plastic bags but from getting entangled in the nets. Another study, published last year by Canadian and South African researchers, traced the origins of plastic bottles that had washed up on the shore of the aptly named Inaccessible Island, an uninhabited landmass in the middle of the southern Atlantic Ocean. More than 80 percent of the bottles came from China and must have been tossed off boats from Asia traversing the Atlantic.

Some plastic discarded on land does end up in the ocean, but very little of it comes from consumers in the United States or Europe. Most of the labels on the plastic packaging analyzed in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch came from Asia, the greatest source of what researchers call “mismanaged waste.” Of the plastic carried into oceans by rivers, a 2017 study in Nature Communications estimated, 86 percent comes from Asia and virtually all the rest from Africa and South America. Developing countries don’t yet have good systems for collecting and processing waste, so some of it is simply dumped into or near rivers, and these countries’ primitive processing facilities let plastic leak into waterways.
Bold mine.

Further:

Quote:
People do reuse tote bags, but not as often as they plan to. One survey found that consumers forget to bring the bags to the supermarket nearly half the time. To offset the initial carbon footprint of a cotton tote bag, you’d have to use it 173 times, but the typical tote is used just 15 times, so the net effect is about nine times more carbon emissions than a thin plastic bag.
Bold mine.

Longish, excellent read.

Canada: Foul Play Suspected as Third Train Derails in a Month After Far-Left Call for Sabotage

Quote:
Foul play is being considered following the third train derailment in Canada this month, after left-wing extremists called on supporters to sabotage the country’s rail system.

The incident occurred in Sainte-Marie-Salomé in Canada’s French-speaking province of Quebec earlier this week and saw two train cars derailed, with an unnamed source claiming that something had purposely been put on the tracks to derail the train, CTV reports.
Getting what they voted for, good and hard...

Pro-Union Young Turks Founder Throws Tantrum, Refuses to Recognize His Company's Employee Union

Quote:
This is the most delicious story to ever come out of the "snake-eats-tail" category. The Young Turks, the obnoxiously far-left and self-proclaimed "progressive" news organization, is feeling the effects of its own pro-union philosophy and they don't like it one bit! Founder Cenk Uygur actually threw a temper tantrum at an employee meeting in early February when he was informed that the writers and staff at TYT were unionizing.


Quote:
But wait! It gets funnier! Uygur told HuffPo that he "worries a unionized workforce would bring new legal and bureaucratic costs that TYT can’t sustain." You don't say! Well, that's not news to any of us over here on the sane side of the aisle, who have been telling people forever that unions are mostly political organizations that destroy companies and prop up the Democrat party but don't mind us. We're just over here eating our popcorn and laughing.
Bold mine.

Shocka...

Are Warrants Really Required for Border Patrol Agents to Board a Greyhound Bus?

Quote:
In the latest example of a well known company folding to "woke" progressives, the Greyhound bus company has announced that it will no longer permit Border Patrol agents to board their buses and conduct immigration status checks of passengers unless those agents present a warrant. Needless to say, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has applauded the move, as have a number of other alien advocacy groups.

The decision may have been predicated on a leaked memo issued by now-retired Border Patrol chief Carla Provost, which allegedly acknowledged such a need because the company's prior position was that, while they didn't like such "transportation checks" as they are known in Border Patrol parlance, they had no basis on which to object. In fact, the argument they made then was akin to the argument I make below.
I've written on these boards before about a band trip our high school made to Italy in 1978. There were a couple of political crises going on at the time and all of the toll roads we entered had a well-placed machine gun nest nearby. In addition, soldiers with automatic weapons would inspect every vehicle going through the checkpoint, including boarding all buses. It would have been entertaining at the very least to see Nello, our tour bus driver, stop the soldiers at the door and ask for a warrant...

Berkeley Professor Emerita of Public Health: "MAGAts" Are Going to Die Because They Don't Believe in the #Science of Coronavirus, Then Tweets "HashtagLetThemGetSickAndDie"

Quote:
We no longer have a shared country when the Ruling Class -- not some mentally ill homeless person, but a credentialed member of the Ruling Class -- can make up conspiracy theories and cheer for death for her fellow countryman.

A Professor of Public Health -- cheering on the plague!

And she suffers no consequences -- even though she's paid by the public.

This country cannot continue as a single entity. It is stupid to continue pretending out of foolish sentiment.

The Morning Report

Quote:
Barring some sort of unforeseen events between now and the primaries, Sanders might find himself beyond even the ability of the DNC to steal it from him at a brokered convention. But that said, Bernie's inability or unwillingness to conceal who and what he is - an unreconstructed Communist - is causing him to say things that even the lowest of low-information voters is raising an eyebrow at. Case in point are his comments on 60 Minutes praising Cuba's "literacy program," which if one asks escapees from that island gulag is nothing more than coerced propaganda and brainwashing. Florida Democrat Congresswoman Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, a South American immigrant herself, ripped the old coot a new one:
"As the first South American immigrant member of Congress who proudly represents thousands of Cuban Americans, I find Senator Bernie Sanders' comments on Castro's Cuba absolutely unacceptable... "The Castro regime murdered and jailed dissidents, and caused unspeakable harm to too many South Florida families... "To this day, it remains an authoritarian regime that oppresses its people, subverts the free press, and stifles a free society."
Smelling blood in the water, as well as good polling news in South Carolina, Tom "Styrene" Steyer pounced:
"...I don't think it's appropriate to look at a dictator in Cuba who's been there for 60 years, who has really done a terrible job for the Cuban people, who's an autocrat who's never allowed dissent or elections and who has done exactly - he's had the government own the economy and people are hungry and he's been a cruel controller of the country... I don't think it's appropriate to be giving him a lot of compliments."
Of course, Little Big Gulp himself got in on the act:
"Fidel Castro left a dark legacy of forced labor camps, religious repression, widespread poverty, firing squads, and the murder of thousands of his own people. But sure, Bernie. Let's talk about his literacy program."
But ol' Bolshie Bernie wasn't just going to lie there and get curb-stomped, so he defended himself by belching up this little gem:
"I happen to believe in democracy, not authoritarianism. But you know, you can take China as another example. China is an authoritarian country becoming more and more authoritarian. But can anyone deny, I mean the facts are clear, that they have taken more people out of extreme poverty than any country in history. Do I get criticized because I say that? That's the truth. So that is a fact. End of discussion."
The iron...
