         Sure, as if they allowed trans woman to be considered 113 years ago, as if trans women existed 113 years ago.

Trans Weightlifter Laurel Hubbard Wins Coveted Sportswoman of the Year Award

For the first time in 113 years, a trans woman won sportswoman of the year award from the University of Otago.

Weightlifter Laurel Hubbard won the coveted award this year after qualifying for the Olympics.

The New Zealand Herald reported:

Transgender weightlifter Laurel Hubbard has been named University of Otago sportswoman of the year at the Blues awards earlier this week.

         "while property crimes continued their long-running decline and dropped 8% from 2019."

          A lot more people are spending a lot more time at home, and they watch out for their neighborhoods.

FBI Data Shows An Unprecedented Spike In Murders Nationwide In 2020

The number of murders in the United States jumped by nearly 30% in 2020 compared with the previous year in the largest single-year increase ever recorded in the country, according to official FBI statistics released Monday.

The data shows 21,570 homicides in the U.S. in 2020, which is a staggering 4,901 more than in 2019. The tally makes clear — in concrete terms — just how violent last year was.

The overall violent crime rate, which includes murder, assault, robbery and rape, inched up around 5%, while property crimes continued their long-running decline and dropped 8% from 2019.

But the spike in murders jumps out in the FBI report because of the sheer scale of the change.

Jeff Asher, a data consultant who studies crime rates, said the increase is the largest since national records began being kept in 1960s.

The murder rate is still below its historic peaks reached in the 1990s, but the figures from 2020 show the problem has become much more widespread.

       “You are all child abusers. You prey upon impressionable children and indoctrinate them into your insane ideological cult..."

https://therightscoop.com/watch-matt-walsh-unloads-on-the-loudoun-county-school-board-drops-some-moabs-on-them/

Matt Walsh UNLOADS on the Loudoun County school board, drops some MOABS on them

Out of the gate Walsh hits them hard:

“You are all child abusers. You prey upon impressionable children and indoctrinate them into your insane ideological cult, a cult which holds many fanatical views, but none so deranged as the idea that boys are girls and girls are boys. By imposing this vile nonsense on students, even to the point of forcing young girls to share locker rooms with boys, you deprive these kids of safety and privacy and something more fundamental too, which is truth. If education is not grounded in truth, then it is worthless. Worse, it is poison. You are poison. You are predators.

I can see why you tried to stop us from speaking. You know that your ideas are indefensible. You silence the opposing side because you have no argument. You can only hide under your beds like pathetic little gutless cowards hoping we shut up and go away. But we won’t. I promise you that.”

Wow! What a great sixty seconds of pure, unadulterated truth. I can’t wait to hear what he’s got to say the next time he’s at the podium.

       “Grossness is not a good objection,” wrote Atul Gawande in a 1998 Slate op-ed. “Lots of operations are gross–leg amputations, burn surgery, removal of facial tumors, etc. But that does not make them wrong.”

       Do you see this comparison. Biden's pick just made a positive comparison between medical treatments used to save lives, and medical procedures designed to murder the most innocent of all lives. Amazing!

https://www.wnd.com/2021/09/bidens-pick-usaid-claimed-grossness-no-reason-reject-partial-birth-abortion/

Biden's pick for USAID claimed 'grossness' is no reason to reject partial birth abortion

'We imagine, as we look in the fetus's eyes, that there is someone in there'

President Joe Biden’s nominee to lead global health development at the U.S. Agency for International Development formerly suggested that brutal partial birth abortion techniques should not be vilified over other abortion procedures, saying, “Grossness is not a good objection.”

“Grossness is not a good objection,” wrote Atul Gawande in a 1998 Slate op-ed. “Lots of operations are gross–leg amputations, burn surgery, removal of facial tumors, etc. But that does not make them wrong.”

A partial birth abortion is one in which an abortion doctor delivers a living baby until all the body except the baby’s head is outside the mother’s body, then punctures the back of the baby’s head, “removing the baby’s brains,” according to the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act.

Biden’s Health and Human Services Director Xavier Becerra has repeatedly refused to acknowledge that the procedure is illegal, though the highly discussed piece of legislation passed Congress in 2003, was signed by former President George W. Bush, and was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court as constitutional in 2007.

Gawande also describes a partial birth abortion in gruesome detail in his 1998 op-ed, acknowledging that late-term abortions are “disturbing” since the unborn baby is ” big now–like a fully formed child.”

“Partial-birth abortion is, if anything, less grotesque,” he wrote, comparing partial birth abortion to Dilation and Evacuation procedures. “The fetus is delivered feet first. To get the large head out, the doctor cuts open a hole at the base of the fetus’s skull and inserts tubing to suck out the brain, which collapses the skull.”

The Biden nominee's frankness in discussing partial birth abortion is reminiscent of a very different period in the fight over abortion — advocates of the past few years are much less likely to discuss abortion techniques with such candor.

       "Curiously, Garland’s letter didn’t actually specify any credible threats."

https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/10/ag-merrick-garland-instructs-fbi-mobilize-parents-oppose-critical-race-theory-covid-mandates-public-schools/

AG Merrick Garland Instructs FBI to Mobilize Against Parents Who Oppose Critical Race Theory, Covid Mandates in Public Schools

The Biden Regime is targeting political opponents and using the might of the federal government to abolish the First Amendment by classifying dissent as “domestic terrorism.”

US Attorney General Merrick Garland has instructed the FBI to mobilize against parents who oppose Critical Race Theory (CRT) and Covid mandates, citing ‘threats.’

Merrick Garland’s letter to the FBI follows the National School Board Association’s request to classify protests as “domestic terrorism.”

“Threats against public servants are not only illegal, they run counter to our nation’s core values,” wrote Attorney General Garland. “Those who dedicate their time and energy to ensuring that our children receive a proper education in a safe environment deserve to be able to do their work without fear for their safety.”

Curiously, Garland’s letter didn’t actually specify any credible threats.

“Citing an increase in harassment, intimidation and threats of violence against school board members, teachers and workers in our nation’s public schools, today Attorney General Merrick B. Garland directed the FBI and U.S. Attorneys’ Offices to meet in the next 30 days with federal, state, Tribal, territorial and local law enforcement leaders to discuss strategies for addressing this disturbing trend. These sessions will open dedicated lines of communication for threat reporting, assessment and response by law enforcement.” the DOJ’s press release read.

The DOJ will be creating a task force “consisting of representatives from the department’s Criminal Division, National Security Division, Civil Rights Division, the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys, the FBI, the Community Relations Service and the Office of Justice Programs, to determine how federal enforcement tools can be used to prosecute these crimes…”

       I have a solution for you. Just change the F grade from failure to fabulous. While you are at it, change the A from excellent to abysmal.

https://thepostmillennial.com/middle-school-eliminates-f

Middle school eliminates 'F' grade to combat 'systemic racism'

A Minnesota middle school is eliminating the failing "F" grade. As explained in a YouTube video posted by Sunrise Park Middle School, the 2021-22 school year does not include 0-49.9 percentiles for students. Instead, Associate Principal Norman Bell elaborated that students will be encouraged to retake quizzes, according to Fox News.

"Our whole intent is to ensure that grades focus on the process of learning," Principal Christina Pierre said in the video. "Therefore, grades will not include behaviors, attitude, tardiness to class, whether the assignment was turned in late or on time. There's other ways that we can communicate those things to parents."

The district's superintendent, Wayne Kazmierczak, was awarded the Minnesota Association of School Administrators 2021 Superintendent of the Year. The school's website discusses the award and the requirement of an "equity audit" before being awarded. The equity audit would seemingly measure grade disparities among races, and it remains unclear whether the district has eliminated failing grades as a result of this equity audit.

"Grading can be one of the largest areas in which systemic racism and inequities are perpetuated. Dr. Kazmierczak and WBLAS believe grades should be a measure of what a student knows and has mastered in a given course. Grading should not be a behaviour punishment and should not be a measure of how well a student can survive stress at home," the website reads.

         "the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion spending package refers to mothers as both “pregnant” and “lactating” individuals on 11 occasions."

          Soon to be lactating individuals.

Three Pregnant Dads: Meet the Men Wearing 'Empathy Bellies' - ABC News

Washington Post Erases Women — New Style Guide Says to Use 'Pregnant Individuals' Instead

Think tanks, the media, and liberal politicians are in the midst of a coordinated effort to erase associating pregnancy with women. Now, the Washington Post has updated their official style guide to replace the term “pregnant woman” with “pregnant individual.”

Travis Lyles, the Washington Post’s new “Instagram editor” leaked the big change on Twitter, before setting his account to private.

“While biology dictates who can become pregnant, it does not always reflect gender identity,” the updated style manual reads. “If we say pregnant women, we exclude those who are transgender and nonbinary.”

The newspaper is worried about excluding women, who they consider a “marginalized group,” a report from Newsbusters notes.

“However, we must take care that our efforts to be more inclusive do not come at the expense of other marginalized groups, such as women, and add to a feeling of exclusion.”

It isn’t just the media attempting to change our language to erase women from motherhood.

The Daily Caller reports that the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion spending package refers to mothers as both “pregnant” and “lactating” individuals on 11 occasions.

        "As the report states: “Current research indicates that testosterone suppression does not negate this physical advantage over females and so cannot guarantee competitive fairness and/or safety.”

          What if it did? Who cares? Women do not want to compete against the men in physical competitions even if the men tie their hands behind their backs. What kind of man takes pride in beating a bunch of women in a push-up competition? All these faux women are doing is ruining something, but maybe that is exactly what they want. These are not builders, they are destroyers.

As study confirms trans athletes have unfair advantages, university gives prize to trans athlete

It is a symptom of our stupid age that extremely obvious facts are reported as shocking news, while obvious falsehoods are reported as triumphant truths. Consider, for example, the tale of two transgender stories.

You could be forgiven for missing it — only a few outlets covered the story because it is inconvenient to the current progressive dogmas — but a report from the Sports Councils Equality Group concluded that “trans women” (that is, biological men identifying as women) have an advantage when playing in women’s sports. This is not only true in general, but also when testosterone levels have been reduced in order to level the playing field.

As the report states: “Current research indicates that testosterone suppression does not negate this physical advantage over females and so cannot guarantee competitive fairness and/or safety.”

That said, in order to ensure that transgender athletes can exercise their God-given right to play sports with whoever they want, whenever they want, the report timidly suggested that new “universal” or “open” categories be invented, so that transgender folks and in-betweenies can still play without ruining women’s sports. The report concluded that fairness in women’s sports cannot be maintained if trans athletes are allowed to compete.

The report is thorough, including a review of the latest research and interviews with 300 people and 175 organizations. It is also inconvenient for trans activists, who have been making a lot of headway in colonizing women’s sports: The International Olympic Committee (IOC) currently allows it.

In order to dodge inevitable accusations of transphobia, the report went out of the way to emphasize the apparent need for “prioritising transgender inclusion,” without explaining why this should be a priority beyond the unspoken fact that trans activists expect society to rearrange itself around their chosen gender identities.

This story, of course, is not surprising to anyone with a functioning frontal cortex or set of eyes. Biological males have distinct physical advantages, and only when trans activists started demanding that we ignore our lying eyes have we pretended that this is not the case. Instead, we are treated to insane stories like this one, out of New Zealand.

Olympic New Zealand weightlifter Laurel Hubbard — a biological man identifying (unconvincingly) as a woman — has been named “sportswoman of the year” by the University of Otago. Which means that any other female Kiwi athletes who thought they might qualify are now confronted with the fact that a big, brawny dude calling himself a woman qualifies as more of a woman than they do in the eyes of the University of Otago.

Of course, this is being touted as another great win for transgender folks, who have already won most of the magazine prizes intended for women.

           "The new law makes California the first state in the US to make learning marxist CRT ideology compulsory for teenage students to graduate."

California Becomes the First State that Requires High School Students to Pass a CRT-Based "Ethnic Studies" Course in Order to Graduate; New Law will Also Apply to Charter Schools

On Friday, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a bill - AB 101 - into law that makes it mandatory for high school students to pass “ethnic studies” indoctrination courses as a part of their graduation requirements. The new law makes California the first state in the US to make learning marxist CRT ideology compulsory for teenage students to graduate. 

In addition to every public school in the state, charter schools will also have to follow the new guidelines – Only Private schools are exempt from the new law – Which is very convenient for the Governor, seeing that his 4 children all attend lavish private schools.

Rules for thee but not for me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Newsome rejected a previous version of the bill last year, but the timing must have been better now. It’s probably just a coincidence that it passed in the wake of his questionable escape in the *rigged* recall election.

The course cirriculum for these ethnic studies classes is – no surprise – a cesspool of Marxist CRT garbage. The material will be based on California’s currently in-use “model cirriculum in ethnic studies” and/or any “existing ethnic studies course” (including college-approved courses). Educators will also be able to come up with their own curriculums as long as the content is approved by their local woke school board.

Some of the anti-American lesson plans that have already been approved for high schoolers include: “#BlackLivesMatter and Social Change,” “Afrofuturism: Reimagining Black Futures and Science Fiction,” “US Undocumented Immigrants from Mexico and Beyond,” and “This is Indian Land: The Purpose, Politics, and Practice of Land Acknowledgment,” among countless others.

        "America’s record surge of violence came as Democrat-led cities and states across the country cut billions of dollars of funding from police budgets after the death of George Floyd in May 2020."

US had highest murder increase ‘in modern history’ amid police defunding, BLM riots last year

The U.S. experienced the highest murder rate increase “in modern history” last year amid widespread police defunding, Black Lives Matter riots, and crippling lockdown orders, according to new data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

Data released Wednesday by the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) indicated a 30% rise in homicides in 2020, the largest since at least 1905.

“It is the largest increase in 100 years,” Robert Anderson, chief of mortality statistics at NCHS, told CNN.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

America’s record surge of violence came as Democrat-led cities and states across the country cut billions of dollars of funding from police budgets after the death of George Floyd in May 2020.

Last summer, New York City approved a budget shifting $1 billion from the city police department before partially backtracking as murders soared 17 percent this year. Atlanta similarly slashed corrections funding by 60 percent, and Los Angeles moved to cut $100 million-$150 million from the Los Angeles Police Department, according to pro-police group Secure America Now.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Those numbers reflect recent data from the FBI, which reported 21,500 total homicides last year, up from around 16,600 in 2019.

“Since June 2020, local leaders and activists’ increasing attacks, demoralized, debilitated, and in some cases, defunded law enforcement,” the LELDF said. “As police stepped back, violence surged.”

Nationwide police defunding also memorably occurred alongside mass rioting linked to the Marxist, pro-LGBT Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement.

The Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project, a nonprofit that tracks political violence, registered more than 500 riots associated with BLM between May and September 2020. The Black Lives Matter riots accounted for over 95 percent of violent “protests” in the United States last year and left an astounding 2,000 police officers injured.

Just the first few weeks of rioting dealt between $1 billion-$2 billion in damages, in what was the most destructive wave of political violence in decades, based on insurance claims data.

The BLM riots nevertheless won the backing of virtually the entire liberal media and top Democrats, including then-Senator Kamala Harris.
