A Pregnant ‘Man’s’ Medical Emergency Proves a HUGE ISSUE with Transgenderism

When the [woman] arrived at the hospital with severe abdominal pains, a nurse didn’t consider it an emergency, noting that [she] was obese and had stopped taking blood pressure medicines. In reality, [she] was pregnant — a transgender man in labor that was about to end in a stillbirth.

The tragic case, described in Wednesday’s New England Journal of Medicine, points to larger issues about assigning labels or making assumptions in a society increasingly confronting gender variations in sports, entertainment and government. In medicine, there’s a similar danger of missing diseases such as sickle cell and cystic fibrosis that largely affect specific racial groups, the authors write. . .

Transgender men, who are considered female at birth but who identify as male, may or may not be using masculinizing hormones or have had surgical alterations, such as womb removal.

The 32-year-old patient told the nurse [she] was transgender when [she] arrived at the emergency room and [her[ electronic medical record listed [her] as male. [She] hadn’t had a period in several years and had been taking testosterone, a hormone that has masculinizing effects and can decrease ovulation and menstruation. But [she] quit taking the hormone and blood pressure medication after he lost insurance. . .

Several hours later, a doctor evaluated [her] and the hospital test confirmed pregnancy. An ultrasound showed unclear signs of fetal heart activity, and an exam revealed that part of the umbilical cord had slipped into the birth canal. Doctors prepared to do an emergency cesarean delivery, but in the operating room no fetal heartbeat was heard. Moments later, the [woman] delivered a stillborn baby.

Recent Poll Reveals Trump Is KILLING IT

By Daily Wire. According to a new Zogby poll, President Trump is killing it. His job approval has climbed over 50%, (51%) the highest of his tenure as president, higher than Barack Obama’s (48%) was at the same time in his presidency.

Additionally, the majority of millennials (18-29) approve of the president (51%); even more of the age group from 25-34 approves of him (53%), and even more of those aged 35-54 (59%). 58% of men approved of Trump, a slim minority of women (48%) approved of him. . .

Zogby wrote, “President Trump’s job approval rating has seen a post Mueller report boost! We called it a few weeks ago. But that’s not the complete story as to why the president has reached a peak in his job approval rating. Trump is also riding high on positive economic news-a record high stock market, low unemployment, and solid GDP growth at home.” (Read more from “Recent Poll Reveals Trump Is Killing It” HERE)

Today’s Deep State Crisis Was Predicted 100 Years Ago

Paid Agitators? Deep State? Calvin Coolidge exposes their plan to have “authority over everybody” and “responsible to nobody”.

President Calvin Coolidge warned in a speech given May 15, 1926, at the College of William and Mary: “But there is another … recent development … the greatly disproportionate influence of organized minorities. Artificial propaganda, paid agitators, selfish interests, all impinge upon members of legislative bodies to force them to represent special elements rather than the great body of their constituency. When they are successful, minority rule is established. … The result is an extravagance on the part of the Government which is ruinous to the people and a multiplicity of regulations and restrictions for the conduct of all kinds of necessary business, which becomes little less than oppressive. …”

Coolidge continued, exposing the autocratic deep-state bureaucracy: “No plan of centralization has ever been adopted which did not result in bureaucracy, tyranny, inflexibility, reaction, and decline. Of all forms of government, those administered by bureaus are about the least satisfactory to an enlightened and progressive people. Being irresponsible they become autocratic. … Unless bureaucracy is constantly resisted it breaks down representative government and overwhelms democracy. It … sets up the pretense of having authority over everybody and being responsible to nobody. …”

. . . Calvin Coolidge gave insight into America’s success at maintaining order in his address at the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, Philadelphia, July 5, 1926: “The principles … which went into the Declaration of Independence … are found in … the sermons … of the early colonial clergy who were earnestly undertaking to instruct their congregations in the great mystery of how to live. They preached equality because they believed in the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. They justified freedom by the text that we are all created in the divine image. … Placing every man on a plane where he acknowledged no superiors, where no one possessed any right to rule over him, he must inevitably choose his own rulers through a system of self-government. … In order that they might have freedom to express these thoughts and opportunity to put them into action, whole congregations with their pastors migrated to the colonies. …”

Coolidge concluded: “The Declaration of Independence is a great spiritual document. … Equality, liberty, popular sovereignty, the rights of man – these are … ideals. They have their source and their roots in the religious convictions. They belong to the unseen world. Unless the faith of the American in these religious convictions is to endure, the principles of our Declaration will perish. We can not continue to enjoy the result if we neglect and abandon the cause.” (Read more from “Today’s Deep State Crisis Was Predicted 100 Years Ago” HERE)

WATCH: Reporter Fires Hostile Question at Pro-Life Governor. Governor Flattens Her.

Before she signed the strongest anti-abortion bill in the nation on Wednesday, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey faced down a hostile question from a CBS reporter and immediately flattened her. CBS reporter Jericka Duncan asked, “Where is the money coming from to support people who aren’t ready to be mothers or aren’t financially stable to take care of a child?” Ivey fired back, “You simply cannot defer protecting the lives of unborn children because of costs.”

Ivey served as Alabama State Treasurer from 2003 to 2011, then served as lieutenant governor from 2011 to 2017. She became Alabama’s second female governor and first female Republican governor after the resignation of Governor Robert Bentley; she won a full term in 2018.

Ivey has not flinched from holding staunchly conservative positions; in April 2017 she signed into law a bill stating that juries that imposed capital punishment could not be overruled by judges. Frank Knaack, executive director of Alabama Appleseed, asserted, “We should all agree that if we have a death penalty then the process should be fair and accurate. SB 16 will help minimize unreliable and arbitrary death sentences and move Alabama one step closer to ending its outlier status. We commend Senator Brewbaker, Senator Sanders, and Representative England for their leadership in this effort. And, we thank Governor Ivey for her quick action to finally put an end to judicial override in Alabama.” (Read more from “WATCH: Reporter Fires Hostile Question at Pro-Life Governor.

This Is the GOP Senator Who Is Keeping The Russian Collusion Myth Alive

By Townhall. Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), what the he** is going on? No, seriously, why did you subpoena Donald Trump Jr. over this Russian collusion nonsense? Special Counsel Robert Mueller has debunked this story. The report was definitive. There was no Trump-Russia collusion. There was zero evidence to back up any of the claims the liberal media has peddled for two years. A lot of us knew this from the get-go. When no evidence was unearthed to back up the Russian collusion myth, which was a massive red flag that the Left ignored, that was the sign. Liberals hoped for a smoking gun and got a nothing burger. Trump won. And even the Senate Intelligence Committee, which Burr chairs, noted that there was zero evidence to back up Russia-Trump collusion. Yet, Burr wishes to keep the conspiracy theory wingnuts of the Left thirsty for more when he issued a subpoena for Donald Trump Jr.’s testimony.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) channeled his inner 2.0-self and advised Trump Jr. to ignore it. We’ve already won. But now it’s being reported that a deal has been hashed out for the president’s son to answer two-to-four hours worth of questions. It won’t be an open-ended session and it’s most likely going to be behind closed doors. A June date has been set (via NYT):

Donald Trump Jr. and the Republican-controlled Senate Intelligence Committee reached a deal on Tuesday for the president’s eldest son to sit for a private interview with senators in the coming weeks that will be limited in time, an accord that should cool a heated intraparty standoff.

The deal came after an aggressive push by the younger Trump’s allies, who accused the Intelligence Committee’s chairman, Senator Richard M. Burr of North Carolina, of caving to Democrats by issuing a subpoena for the president’s son’s testimony. They called the effort a political hit job against the White House, using the president’s son as fodder.

At odds on many fronts, U.S. and Russia hope for better ties

By The Associated Press. Russia and the United States voiced hope Tuesday that badly strained relations could begin to improve despite wide differences on multiple fronts and deep mutual suspicion deepened by Russian meddling in American elections.

With tensions running high over Iran, Syria, Ukraine and Venezuela, Russian President Vladimir Putin claimed vindication from the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and said he thought it was time to move on. Meanwhile, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo conveyed President Donald Trump’s interest in restoring better ties.

In the highest-level face-to-face contact between the two countries since special counsel Robert Mueller’s report was released last month, Putin told Pompeo he hoped relations with the U.S. would now improve. (Read more from “At odds on many fronts, U.S. and Russia hope for better ties” HERE)

Study Finds This City Has the Highest Taxpayer Burden in the United States

America’s 10 largest cities, largely Democrat strongholds, are drowning in municipal debt, according to a new report from government watchdog Truth in Accounting.

The report sought out “to determine what … overlapping financial entities mean for taxpayers’ bottom line.” Truth in Accounting said its purpose was to “calculate the various bills (and surpluses, when available) at the city government level and divide them out to determine a per-Taxpayer Burden.”

The two cities with the highest burden: Chicago and New York City; Chicago’s combined taxpayer burden: $119,110; New York City’s combined taxpayer burden: $85,600. . .

The Chicago City Council approved $2.4 billion in tax subsidies for two major developments in early April. Protesters gathered at City Hall chanting against the deals. Critics said the projects are in prosperous parts of Chicago and developers should pay for infrastructure improvements, not taxpayers. . .

Forbes reported that the city’s taxpayer burden is attached to unfunded retirement obligations amassed over of a number of years: $39 billion in retirement benefits have been promised; $28 billion in pension and $842.9 million in retiree health care benefits haven’t been funded.

Romney Casts Lone GOP Vote Against Trump Judicial Pick – Here’s Why

On Tuesday, the Senate voted to confirm Michael J. Truncale of Texas as the United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Texas by a vote of 49-46.

The vote was mostly along party lines in the upper chamber, with Sens. Cassidy, R-La., Gillibrand, D-N.Y., Hirono, D-Hawaii, Kennedy, R-La., Rounds, R-S.D., not voting; there was, however, one party defection, as Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, voted with Democrats against the nominee.

For Romney, it wasn’t a matter of jurisprudence or legal qualifications, but remarks made about former Democratic President Obama Truncale made in 2011, calling him an “un-American imposter.”

In a written response to questions from Senate Judiciary Committee Member Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., Truncale said that the comments were some of many made while in previous “capacities as a candidate for the United States Congress or as a political commentator” and that such opinions would be inappropriate for a judge to express.

Back in 2011, Truncale threw his hat into the political ring and ran for Congress in a crowded field to replace the outgoing congressman and then-Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul.

“I will note that it is possible, however,” Truncale later added in his response to Feinstein, “that I was merely expressing frustration by what I perceived as a lack of overt patriotism on behalf of President Obama.”

However, that explanation just didn’t cut it for Romney, who told Politico after the vote that he voted against Truncale in defense of Obama, citing his own 2012 presidential run against the Chicago Democrat.

“He made particularly disparaging comments about President Obama. And as the Republican nominee for president, I just couldn’t subscribe to that in a federal judge,” Romney told the outlet. “This was not a matter of qualifications or politics; this was something specifically to that issue as a former nominee of our party.” (For more from the author of “Romney Casts Lone GOP Vote Against Trump Judicial Pick – Here’s Why” HERE)

School Renames Mother’s Day: ‘We No Longer Subscribe to a Binary World’

An Australian school renamed Mother’s Day, calling it “Acknowledgment Day” as the principal stated, “We no longer subscribe to a binary world.”

As The Daily Mail writes of Brunswick East Primary School in Melbourne, “In previous years, the school has hosted a fundraising stall where children could buy Mother’s Day merchandise such as mugs, trinkets, candles and soaps.” But now the stall will be called the “appreciation stall” instead, where children can buy gifts for anyone.

Principal Janet Di Pilla wrote in the school newsletter:

You will see further in this newsletter a fantastic poster for our first “Acknowledgment Day.” We will be holding 2 of these days each year; one to coincide with the “traditional” Mother’s Day and the other to coincide with the “traditional” Father’s Day. There has been a lot of discussion about the reason we celebrate these days and the naming of the celebration. I believe that days like this are important because we do need to stop and show gratitude for those around us. However, it is also very important that we make these occasions as inclusive as possible.

I sincerely hope that this change in name will show that we as a community recognize that our families are not made up of any particular combination of people and that we no longer subscribe to a binary world. I am sorry that in the past we have offended some members of our community and I hope that this acknowledgment goes some way to address any hurt which has occurred in the past.

FBI Uncovers Terrorist Training Camp on U.S. Soil – It Has a Terrifying Connection

By The Blaze. The FBI has uncovered a makeshift military training camp used by Islamic terrorists in rural Macon County, Alabama. . .

To make matters worse, federal investigators say there is a connection between the Alabama camp and the massive terror compound discovered in New Mexico last year.

The Alabama property is owned by Siraj Wahhaj, investigators say. Wahhaj is the same man who reportedly led the small group of terrorists at the New Mexico camp, where the jihadis allegedly trained young children to carry out school shootings. . .

In March, Wahhaj and the four other adults living at the New Mexico compound were indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of “providing material support to terrorists, conspiracy to murder an officer or employee of the United States, kidnapping, possessing a firearm while unlawfully in the United States, and other charges,” the Associated Press reported.

FBI Uncovers Homegrown Terror Training Camp in Alabama

By ABC 3340. At first glance, it looks like an abandoned dump.

But this plot of land in Macon County, Alabama is described in an FBI search warrant as a “makeshift military-style obstacle course” belonging to a small group of terrorists led by Siraj Wahhaj who owned the property up a long dirt road but just a few miles from downtown Tuskegee. . .

FBI Assistant Director for the Counterterrorism Division Michael McGarrity told lawmakers on Capitol Hill there are 850 open domestic terrorism investigations, with 40% racially motivated violent extremism.

In the Alabama case the group may not have carried out an attack, but the remains of a child believed to belong to Wahhaj, who is being charged with kidnapping were also found on the property. (Read more from “FBI Uncovers Homegrown Terror Training Camp in Alabama” HERE)

Father of Transgender School Shooter Suspect Is a Illegal Alien With a HEAVY Record

By The Epoch Times. The father of Colorado school shooting suspect Maya “Alec” McKinney is an illegal immigrant and serial felon, according to a new report.
