Athletic Wear Company Targets Trump for Humiliation in New AD Campaign

A billboard for an athletic wear company features various women humiliating a man who looks like President Donald Trump, including one pose where he is being hogtied.

The ads from Dhvani are being featured at Times Square in New York City. . .

In another, the impersonator is sitting on the toilet with his pants around his ankles while a woman grabs his smartphone from his hands.

Vendors can refuse ads, but the company says that they were able to compromise with their vendor to get the ad approved.

“We were able to work with our vendor and reach a consensus on the level of facial obfuscation that would appease the landlord and get this bold, pull-no-punches, call-to-arms creative up and in front of potentially millions of like-minded Americans,” said Dhvani chief marketing officer Angela Williams.

Hero’s Words: U.S. Marine Wounded After Jumping on Grenade Has Message for Americans

Retired Lance Corporal Kyle Carpenter reflected on his time serving in Afghanistan and discussed how he turned his injury into opportunity in his new memoir, “You Are Worth It.” . . .

“I wrote this book to transcend all boundaries,” Carpenter said. “I didn’t want only veterans or service members, or people that had been to combat, to only be able to take something from it. I wanted anyone to pick it up and not only be able to understand it, but to take lessons from it.”

“Many of the lessons and perspectives that I’ve discussed came because I was forced to search for those silver linings during those long dark and painful nights in the hospital,” Carpenter continued.

“But now, I’m so thankful that I’ve had these amazing experiences from this bonus round that I’m living to tell people that it’s about perspective and how you look at things and that you can truly come back better and stronger than you were before… and come back smiling,” he added.

Carpenter, 29, is the youngest living recipient of the Medal of Honor and is the eighth living recipient to be honored for actions in Afghanistan or Iraq. (Read more from “Hero’s Words: U.S. Marine Wounded After Jumping on Grenade Has Message for Americans” HERE)

City Cuts Ties with Nearly Half of the U.S. Because of ‘Restrictive Abortion Laws’

The city of San Francisco will no longer conduct business with 22 states that have laws limiting the ability of women to obtain abortions, city official announced Wednesday, according to Newsweek. . .

“Every day in this country, women’s reproductive rights are threatened, and we have to fight back,” San Francisco Mayor London Breed said in a statement. “Just as we restricted spending with states that have laws that discriminate against LGBTQ people, we are standing up against states that put women’s health at risk and that are actively working to limit reproductive freedoms.”

City employees will be prohibited from business travel to states on the list, and from making deals with companies headquartered in those states. The city ordinance targets states that have laws limiting abortion before viability—widely considered to be 24 weeks. From the city’s statement:

“In recent years, states across the country have passed a growing number of restrictive abortion laws. In accordance with Supervisor Brown’s ordinance, we identified state laws that prohibit abortion before viability and have recommended that these states be added to the City Administrator’s list,” said Dr. Emily Murase, Director of the Department of the Status of Women. “If any company that is headquartered in the listed states wants to continue doing business with the City, we encourage them to stand up for reproductive rights and advocate for a change to their state law. We applaud Supervisor Brown for her leadership in authoring this ordinance and for continuing San Francisco’s long history of fighting for women’s rights.”

Police Confiscate Firearms of Korean War Veteran After Waitress Mishears Conversation

A Korean War veteran who has served in some capacity with local law enforcement for a span of six decades had his firearms confiscated and was relieved of his duties as an elementary school crossing guard last month, after a waitress overheard what she perceived to be a “threat” in a passing conversation at a coffee shop.

Stephen Nichols, 84, of Tisbury, Massachusetts, was never charged with a crime, and was reinstated to his post at the crosswalk of Tisbury School on Tuesday following public outcry. But his guns are still to be sold. . .

A waitress at Linda Jean’s Restaurant in Oak Bluffs reported Nichols to authorities, after she said she overheard him talking to a friend and believed he was making a threat. Nichols told the Martha’s Vineyard Times that he made no threats whatsoever, and that his conversation was taken out of context. . .

The Times reported that “Nichols said he was unimpressed with the Tisbury School resource officer’s alleged trips to Xtra Mart to get coffee when children came to school in the morning,” and “told a friend about this and suggested somebody could ‘shoot up the school’ in that officer’s absence, which he described as ‘leaving his post.'”

Based on the waitress’s report, Tisbury Police Chief Mark Saloio and another officer pulled Nichols off the job while he was working his shift at the school. “He came up to me and told me what I said was a felony, but he wasn’t going to charge me,” Mr. Nichols recalled.

Ousted Planned Parenthood President: Abortion Should Be ‘Safe, Legal, and Rare’

Dr. Leana Wen, the Planned Parenthood president who said she was ousted because she opposed the organization’s politicization, tweeted her support for abortion to be “safe, legal, and rare.”

The construction “safe, legal, and rare” isn’t favored by abortion rights groups, which back broader access to abortion, and is no longer part of the Democratic platform, which says only that abortion must be “safe and legal.” Democrats have moved to allow government funding for abortion and have opposed limits on the procedure, even when performed late in pregnancy.

“I don’t agree with @TulsiGabbard on a lot, but do appreciate that she brought up the third rail for Democrats: that abortion should be ‘safe, legal, and rare,'” Wen tweeted Tuesday evening during the Democratic debate in Ohio. “We should reduce the need for abortions by investing in prevention.”

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii is the only candidate for the Democratic nomination for president to come out in support of limits on abortion and said Tuesday night that it should be “safe, legal, and rare.” (Read more from “Ousted Planned Parenthood President: Abortion Should Be ‘Safe, Legal, and Rare'” HERE)

Happy Halloween! Annual ‘Offensive’ Costume Bans Begin

Every year, as Halloween approaches, the social justice-oriented “woke” police begin issuing their edicts, proscribing certain “offensive” costumes and cancelling Halloween events lest someone — anyone — be offended.

Late last month, an elementary school in the tony Chicago suburb of Evanston announced that they would be cancelling Halloween altogether over concerns that some children who did not celebrate the holiday would be offended by chilling costumes and spooky treats, according to North Cook News.

A Wisconsin school followed suit, calling the holiday “inappropriate” and not “inclusive,” and also did away with parades, parties, and costume-wearing in school. Supervisors at the school district claim that the holiday made certain children feel excluded and highlighted “inequities.” . . .

Michigan State University leads the way in 2019, releasing its rules late last week and pasting posters across campus asking students to consider whether their planned costumes are racially, culturally, or ethnically based.

The College Fix reports that “[p]osters asking ‘Is Your Costume Racially, Culturally, or Ethnically Based?’ appeared in dorms last week courtesy of the school’s Residence Education and Housing Services. The placards feature examples of ‘costume fails’: a guy dressed like a mariachi, women dressed as a Native American (‘hypersexualized racism’) and in a Japanese kimono, and … a space alien (allegedly represents ‘illegal aliens’?).” (Read more from “Happy Halloween!

Chelsea Covers for Clueless Hillary: ‘Yes’ Someone with a Beard and Penis Can Be a Woman

Hillary and Chelsea Clinton are making the rounds to promote their new book, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience, which includes a profile of a man who now is living as a woman and calls himself Danica Roem. Roem has been hailed as the first transgender woman elected as a state legislator.

The Daily Mail picked up on the Sunday Times story that focused on the generation gap between mother and daughter when it comes to embracing the homosexual agenda:

It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo. . .

In an interview with the Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

. . .

“Errr. I’m just learning about this,” Hillary said. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw.” (Read more from “Chelsea Covers for Clueless Hillary: ‘Yes’ Someone with a Beard and Penis Can Be a Woman” HERE)

WATCH: Planned Parenthood Exec Confronted About Using ‘Less Crunchy’ Abortion Technique to Increase Profit

A Planned Parenthood CEO refused to answer questions Friday about her failure to reprimand a doctor who was secretly filmed boasting about “less crunchy” abortion techniques so as to acquire better body parts for sale.

Sheri Bonner, the CEO of Planned Parenthood Pasadena/San Gabriel Valley, refused to answer questions on Friday about evidence she gave in the organization’s lawsuit against journalist/activist David Daleiden, and his colleagues about undercover videos that showed senior executives negotiate over the sale of body parts from abortions.

The judge refused to let the “less crunchy” part of the video be shown in court and interrupted counsel when it was mentioned. Dr. Gatter said she had persuaded a fellow surgeon to employ the “less crunchy” technique so as to acquire a less damaged and therefore more valuable and sought-after body part. However, the jury did hear a defense lawyer start to talk about the quote and also heard that Dr. Gatter was “haggling” over the price of body parts retrieved from abortions.

At the time, Dr. Gatter was one of the most senior doctors and executives in Planned Parenthood. She was the medical director at Planned Parenthood Pasadena and the president of Planned Parenthood’s National Medical Directors Council.

It is illegal to profit from the sale of body parts in the United States. Leaving the court after giving evidence, Ms. Bonner refused to answer questions about whether it is legal to change abortion/medical techniques to make them ‘less crunchy” for profit and without the patient’s consent.

Elizabeth Warren Thinks Tax Payers Should Pay for Transgender Surgery for Inmates

Elizabeth Warren said she was wrong not to support taxpayer-funded transition-related surgery for transgender inmates.

“I think that was a bad answer,” the senior senator for Massachusetts and top-tier 2020 Democratic presidential candidate said during a CNN town hall focused on gay and transgender issues. “Everyone is entitled to medical care that they need.”

In 2012, Warren said the procedure was not “a good use of taxpayer dollars” during her first bid for the Senate. A federal court at the time ordered Massachusetts to provide sex change surgery to Michelle Kosilek, a convicted murderer, in one of the state’s prisons. Her campaign in January began walking back the senator’s comment in a statement, saying she endorsed “medically necessary services, including transition-related surgeries.”

Warren’s remarks Thursday night follow the release of her gay and transgender rights plan. Her proposal includes ending solitary confinement, monitoring compliance with the Prison Rape Elimination Act, prosecuting prison staff for misconduct, and offering sex change surgery, if deemed necessary.

NYC Plans Statues to Honor Seven Women — Two of Them Were Actually Men

New York City has selected seven women to honor with statues placed around the city, two of whom were actually born male.

The statues were planned as part of the “She Built NYC” initiative spearheaded by the first lady of NYC, Mayor Bill de Blasio’s wife Chirlane McCray, meant to celebrate the women who had a hand in making the city what it is today.

McCray, along with former Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen, announced the project in June of 2018, saying that they would take nominations from the public and a committee would narrow down the suggestions to choose a winner. . .

[Marsha] Johnson and [Sylvia] Rivera, neither of whom were born female, are set to be honored with a joint monument in Manhattan. . .

Mother Frances Xavier Cabrini, an Italian-American woman who was the first American to be recognized as a saint by the Catholic Church, reportedly received the most votes from New Yorkers when McCray asked for public submissions — but she was still passed over when the final selections were made.
