Elizabeth Warren: Its cruel to tell boys they cant compete in girls sports

February 24, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Massachusetts Senator and Democrat presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has urged Arizona lawmakers to reject a bill that would protect schoolgirls being forced to compete in sports with boys who claim to be girls.

Warren took to Twitter to describe Arizona House Bill 2706 as “cruel,” saying: “Trans athletes are not a threat. We need to protect trans kids—and all LGBTQ+ kids—and ensure they feel safe and welcomed at school. I urge the Arizona legislature to reject this cruel bill.”

The law would require that public and private schools, including community colleges and universities, categorize sports as either co-educational, male, or female – based on the legal definition of “biological sex.” Teams or sports categorized as “female” would not allow “students of the male sex” to participate.

Rep. Nancy Barto, R-Phoenix, who put forward the bill, said: “Female student-athletes should not be forced to compete in a sport against biological males, who possess inherent physiological advantages. When this is allowed, it discourages female participation in athletics and, worse, it can result in women and girls being denied crucial educational and financial opportunities.”

Writing at The Post Millenial, Libby Emmons, a self-described feminist journalist, questioned Warren’s assertion that “trans athletes are not a threat” by pointing out that “male bodied persons who compete in women’s rugby are so dangerous that referees were quitting the sport rather than watch the women’s injuries mount.”

Woman Allegedly Punches Former NYPD Officer over Make Fifty Great Again Hat

A retired NYPD officer says a woman punched him in the face over his MAGA-style “Make Fifty Great Again” birthday hat.
According to reports, the former cop, Daniel Sprague, was celebrating his 50th birthday at The Stage bar on Broadway in Nashville, Tennessee, and donned a red “Make Fifty Great Again” hat given to him by his wife.

Sprague told WSMV that people came up to him and were “just loving the little word play on the hat and taking pictures and wishing me happy birthday.” However, Sprague claims one woman approached him and ultimately punched him in the face, grabbing his hat and shouting, “How dare you.”

“At one point … a female came up from behind me, spun me around, and punched me in the face and then grabbed my hat off my head and was just yelling, ‘How dare you,'” he said according to WSMV.

“I would assume that she had a ring or she maybe even had a set of keys or something to get it because it is pretty deep and it goes to the bone,” he told the station.

Why women are going braless at work

Call it next-level business casual: Young women are ditching bras in the workplace.

“If my male co-workers don’t have to wear a bra, then neither do I,” Dayna Kathan, a new cast member on the Bravo show “Vanderpump Rules,” tells The Post.


On a recent episode of the reality series, which follows servers and staff at the Los Angeles restaurant SUR, the 29-year-old raised eyebrows when she described bras as “breast prisons.”

“I remember coming home from my corporate job, and the second I got home I would unclasp my bra, like putting a key in the jail cell lock,” says Kathan, who would wear a size 34B.

Although she doesn’t think “bras are evil,” as she clarified in an Instagram post, Kathan hasn’t worn the undergarment since she was 26.

That includes at SUR, where her waitress uniform is — in a fellow SUR-ver’s words — a “thin,” “see-through” black body-con dress with the restaurant’s name splashed across the chest in gold.

IRS Defends Giving Refunds to Illegal Immigrants

In a letter to Congress, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen defended the decision to allow illegal immigrants to get refunds from the agency.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) went “On The Record” tonight to explain that illegal immigrants who get a social security number can go back and apply for a refund through the earned income tax credit. He said this is due to President Barack Obama’s executive order on illegal immigration, calling it unconstitutional and unfair.

“It’s unfair to taxpayers that noncitizen illegals are gonna get this bonus that their tax money’s gonna be used for,” he said, adding that this “points to the patent unfairness” of Obama’s action.

Jordan remarked that this is especially unfair to the legal immigrants who entered the country the right way.

Jordan pointed out that this news comes on the heels of recovered IRS emails that officials said could not be found.

“John Koskinen’s got a lot of explaining to do,” Jordan said.

Facebook and Twitter decline Pelosi request to delete Trump video

A fierce behind the scenes dispute between Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office and Facebook erupted into public view Friday, as the Speaker’s office demanded that Facebook remove a video posted online by President Donald Trump.

The video in question showed Pelosi’s viral State of the Union moment ripping up text of the Trump’s speech Tuesday night, but was edited to make it appear that she ripped the speech even as Trump saluted a Tuskegee airman in the audience. In fact, Pelosi’s speech ripping gesture came at the end of the President’s speech, and her office said it was in response to the totality of the speech and what Pelosi saw as misinformation in it.

The video, labeled “Powerful American stories ripped to shreds by Nancy Pelosi,” was posted on both Facebook and Twitter. Trump tweeted the video from his Twitter account just before 6 p.m. Thursday to his more than 72 million followers.

Sorry your attempt at censorship didn't work, Nanshy.

Matthews UNGLUED: Goose Stepping' Black Mamba Trump Cult Ready for Violent Purge

Chris Matthews came completely unglued on Thursday night. Here’s just a few of the descriptions he had for Donald Trump and his supporters: “Cult,” “violent purge,” “goose stepping,” and “dictator.” Regarding Trump’s comments made at the White House, Matthews suggested that, given a few less constitutional restrictions, the President would be preparing for violence: “As I jotted down Trump's words, I wondered what they would mean in a country where the targets of such invective were not protected by a Constitution such as ours.”

He added, “They sounded like the language of a dictator unleashing a violent purge that his targets would be unlikely to survive.” Matthews also raged, “President Trump spoke today with the venom of a black mamba.”

Elizabeth Warren Apologizes After 6 Women of Color Quit Her Nevada Presidential Campaign

Sen. Elizabeth Warren apologized Thursday evening to six women of color who left her Nevada presidential campaign because of what they called a toxic work environment.

“I believe these women completely and without reservation and I apologize that they have had a bad experience on this campaign,” the Massachusetts Democrat told reporters after a town hall on Thursday.

She continued: “I also understand the long legacy of racism in this country and what it means and how it creates power dynamics and inequities that are toxic and dangerous. And that’s why it’s so important that we be constantly vigilant and determined to do better. I take personal responsibility for this and I’m working with my team to address these concerns.”

Warren’s comments come after a Politico report Thursday said six staffers had left Warren’s Nevada campaign because of what is described in the story as a culture that “tokenized” minority voices.

“During the time I was employed with Nevada for Warren, there was definitely something wrong with the culture,” field organizer Megan Lewis, who joined the campaign in May and departed in December, told Politico. “I filed a complaint with HR, but the follow-up I received left me feeling as though I needed to make myself smaller or change who I was to fit into the office culture.”

Lawmakers again reject Baker's child rape bill

BOSTON — A Democratic-controlled legislative committee has, once again, rejected Gov. Charlie Baker's proposal to limit the release of child sexual predators from prison.

The proposal sought to increase the penalty for rape of a child with force by someone who has already been convicted of sexual offenses to life without parole. It also would have established new charges for the rape of multiple children with force, which would carry a mandatory life sentence. The Legislature's Committee on the Judiciary voted to send the proposal to a study, signaling its demise for the current session.

Baker, a Republican, filed the proposal in response to a ruling by the state's highest court clearing the way for the release of Wayne Chapman.

Convicted of raping two Lawrence boys in 1975, Chapman is also a suspect in the 1976 disappearance of Angelo Puglisi Jr., 10, of Lawrence. He has admitted to raping at least 100 boys.

Baker filed similar legislation in 2018 amid news of Chapman's pending release, but lawmakers didn't take it up before the end of the session.

Wendy Murphy, an attorney who represents several of Chapman's victims, said lawmakers are putting politics before the safety of the public by not taking up the governor's proposal.

"These people should be voted out of office," she said. "This will mean more dangerous sex offenders will be able to get out of prison to victimize more children."
