The transgender craze has escalated to such an extent that now surgeries and puberty blockers are being pushed on kids by some people involved, with the transgender Admiral, Rachel Levine, recently doing so in a video that has raised conservative scorn and eyebrows on Twitter.
Watch that shocking video here:
As you can hear in the video, Levine, discussing what medical services should be provided to minors, pushed the idea that both puberty blockers and surgery should be on the table, saying:
“Gender affirming care is lifesaving, medically necessary, age-appropriate, and a critical tool for health care providers. As a pediatrician, when it comes to making sure kids are healthy and happy, I know how important care that affirmed someone’s true identity can be.”
That defense of “gender affirming care”, by which Levine means puberty blockers and surgery, flies in the face of a recent report from the Heritage Foundation. That report revealed that, contrary to what Levine and others on that side of the debate claim, making puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones easier for minors to access has increased youth suicide rates.
While Levine’s comments are at odds with that study, they’re in line with what Team Biden has been pushing. It recently described hormone therapy as something that can be used starting in “early adolescence”, as can be seen below
Many Republicans reacted in a very strong manner to the video of Levine’s remarks.
One satirical, anonymous account joked “We’ll be sending her to your local elementary classrooms this fall.”
Former Trump aide Stephen Miller fired off a vigorous attack on the statement, saying “Biden Administration aggressively promoting irreversible chemical sterilization and castration of healthy young boys and girls. Vote accordingly in November“, to which another commenter responded by pointing out the results of the Heritage Foundation study, saying “All while avoiding the high percentage of suicides of children given hormone blockers.”
Another pointed out the suicide rate issue too, saying “Then why is there a higher suicide rate amongst trans in states with greater access to these “tools”?”
Famed neo-reactionary Auron MacIntyre commented too, saying “At every level child sacrifice is a central tenet of the state religion“.
Making a different point, one commenter noted that the GOP needs to get more serious about using this video and others like it to show voters what the Democrats are all about, saying:
If Republicans were competent who played to win (and let’s be clear they’re not bc they aren’t as cutthroat like Democrats are) vs. just letting things fall in their lap and see if it works, they’d culturally weaponize this video in certain congressional districts.
Still another encouraged parents to not take their kids to doctors like Levine, saying:
Parents: do not take your children to doctors like this … they’re confused with their own life and want your children to question their own identity and to make like changing decisions at such a young age.
This person is uncomfortably cringy
Pray for secretary Levine.

Biden Struggles While Delivering Remarks, Musk Pounces
Once again President Biden’s administration was forced to put Joe in front of cameras, with his entire speech rolling on at least one teleprompter, to try to explain to the handful of people watching, why he just signed another executive order.
Unlike any other politician in recent history, the 79-year-old declining man who occupies the Oval Office struggled big time in doing this most basic of all the presidential duties assigned to him.
On Friday after he signed an executive order attempting to protect access to abortion after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Democrat President Biden misspoke several times while reading the prepared notes off a teleprompter.
The order aims “to protect and expand access to abortion care, including medication abortion” and “protect and expand access to the full range of reproductive healthcare services, including actions to enhance family planning services such as access to emergency contraception” and “share information about how to obtain free or reduced-cost reproductive healthcare services.”
During his remarks, Biden repeatedly mischaracterized the highest court in the land by calling their ruling “terrible” and “extreme,” then incorrectly said that the ruling was “not a decision driven by the Constitution.”
The Dobbs decision overturning Roe & Casey, all 213 pages of it, is actually full of Constitutional references throughout. For example, on page one:
“Held: The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey
are overruled, and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the
people and their elected representatives. Pp. 8–79.”
During his remarks, Biden made the mistake of reading an instructive phrase as part of the prepared text.
“One of the most important extraordinary parts of the decision, in my view, is the majority writes, and I quote — I’m going to quote now from the majority — ‘Women are not without electoral or political power, it is noteworthy that the percentage of women who register to vote and cast a ballot is consistently higher than the percentage of the men who do so,’ end of quote, repeat the line.”
This confusing and incoherent performance earned him widespread mockery, including from Elon Musk. The Tesla and Space X CEO responded with a meme from the movie Anchorman.
White House assistant press secretary Emelie Simons actually claimed in a tweet that Biden didn’t actually read the teleprompter instructions.
“No. He said, ‘let me repeat that line,’” Simons said.
Other embarrassing moments from the press conference:
Biden tried to mention the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia back-to-back.
“Right now, in all 50 straits and the District of Combia…” Biden butchered the English language once more.
Biden then complained that an unverifiable,10-year-old, reportedly had to travel to Indiana to get an abortion. “10 years old, and she was forced to have to travel out of the state to Indiana to seek to terminate the presidency and maybe save her life,” Biden incorrectly said.
Biden also forgot a basic grammar rule. He added an “s” to women, though it was not appropriate in his sentence:
“tens of millions of womens” who will vote this year.
If this was a scene from the Twilight Zone, most of us would feel a lot better about having a bumbling Manchurian candidate acting as our president.
Since this event did not take place in a fictional television series, then We the People just watched another embarrassing moment take place.
It is hard to predict how much damage Biden’s puppet masters will be able to accomplish over Joe’s remaining 2 years in office.

“This Is Not The Country We Fought For” WWII Marine Delivers Heartbreaking Message To The U.S. “People Don’t Realize…”￼
WWII U.S. Marine veteran, Carl Spurlin Dekel, celebrated his 100th birthday last week. The occasion was joyous, but he had a heartbreaking revelation to share.
“People don’t realize what they have,” Dekel told the outlet. “The things we did and the things we fought for and the boys that died for it, it’s all gone down the drain.”
“We haven’t got the country we had when I was raised, not at all,” he says. “Nobody will have the fun I had. Nobody will have the opportunity I had. It’s just not the same and that’s not what our boys, that’s not what they died for.”
Not surprisingly, many Americans do not have the same patriotism they once did, especially with how the current administration talks about the U.S.
A Fox News interview with Rep. Michael Waltz talked about the very subject of declining patriotism:
If you look at the polling data you see a steady decline over the last decade-plus. I point to our education system. COVID exposed to us the garbage being taught in our schools. When it’s taught in our schools that this is a fundamentally bad country, that at its core it is misogynist, racist, colonialist. It wasn’t founded to establish individual freedom for “we the people” away from monarchies and emperors. That it was established to protect slavery. When that is being taught in our schools and on top of that you have things in math class, which we discovered in Florida.
Word problems in math class that talk about counting the numbers of oppressors and oppressed. Now in our military, they are saying on one hand you need to be willing to die for our constitution and flag, but it [our country] is fundamentally at its core bad and flawed. I think you take all of that together and when you talk about a military like this president has and the secretary of defense [Lloyd Austin]has, it is overrun with white supremacy. It doesn’t surprise me you are seeing this type of decline in pride in our institutions and pride in our flag.
There is always hope, however.
Dekel also spoke about the beauty of life.
“You just remember everything’s beautiful and live every day to the fullest. Just enjoy everything you possibly can,” he said about the secret to living to be 100.
“Liberty must at all hazards be supported. We have a right to it, derived from our Maker. But if we had not, our fathers have earned and bought it for us, at the expense of their ease, their estates, their pleasure, and their blood.”

ND Attorney General Now Targeting Bill Gates After His Recent Mass Farmland Purchase, “Our Office Needs to Confirm How Your Company Uses This Land…”￼
The AG of North Dakota has taken action with a inquiry after billionaire Bill Gates’ latest farmland purchase.
It was recently reported that Bill Gates acquired six parcels of land in Pembina County. Tuesday, the office of the Attorney General sent out a letter asking the Red River Trust to confirm how the company plans to use the land and if it meets any of the exceptions to the North Dakota Corporate Farming Laws.
Agricultural Commissioner Doug Goehring said “I’ve gotten a big earful on this from clear across the state, it’s not even from that neighborhood. Those people are upset, but there are others that are just livid about this.”
Per the DailyCaller “the letter stipulated that under North Dakota law, there are “certain limitations on the ability of trusts to own farmland or ranchland.”
“The Corporate or Limited Liability Company Farming Law has certain exceptions, such as permitting registered family farms or allowing the use of the land for business purposes,” the letter writes.
Those in violation are subject to a civil fine of $100k the letter states.
“Our office needs to confirm how your company uses this land and whether this use meets any of the statutory exceptions, such as business purpose exceptions, such as the business purpose exception, so that we may close this case and file it in our inactive files,” the letter adds.
It was further reported by New York Post that
An entity with ties to billionaire Bill Gates bought 2,100 acres of potato farmland in northern North Dakota — prompting the state’s top prosecutor to intervene after complaints from local residents.
Public records cited by AgWeek show that the Gates-linked Red River Trust bought the farmland from the owners of Campbell Farms, a potato farming group that is headquartered in Grafton, North Dakota, which is about 50 miles from the Canadian border.
North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring told KFYR that public reaction to the purchase has been largely negative.
“I’ve gotten a big earful on this from clear across the state, it’s not even from that neighborhood,” said Goehring.
“Those people are upset, but there are others that are just livid about this.”
Gates, the billionaire tech mogul and philanthropist whose net worth was pegged by Bloomberg at $113 billion, has quietly amassed nearly 270,000 acres of farmland across the country, according to the Associated Press.
The Microsoft co-founder is considered the largest private owner of farmland in the country with some 269,000 acres across dozens of states, according to last year’s edition of the Land Report 100, an annual survey of the nation’s largest landowners.
Breaking: Marjorie Greene Calls For Congressional Investigation Into Jeffery Epstein’s Ties To The Clintons, ’It’s Time For Congress To…”￼
Marjorie Taylor Greene is known for her candid nature and she recently called for an investigation into Jeffery Epstein and his ties to the Clintons.
She tweeted out:
“You know what else would be very good committee hearings? Investigating Jeffrey Epstein’s friends who enjoyed the hard work of this madam, who handed over minors to powerful men for sexual pleasure. Maxwell named the Clinton Foundation as an organization she worked with,” Greene tweeted along with a screenshot of a CNN report detailing Maxwell’s charges and sentencing.”
In June, Maxwell touted her relationship with the Clintons and claimed to have helped launch the Clinton Foundation as she asked the court for a lighter sentence as proof of her “desire to do good in the world,” according to the Daily Mail.
Maxwell was just sentenced to 20 years in prison, despite her efforts to get a short sentence and leniency.
Maxwell, 60, was convicted in December 2021 of five charges, including sex trafficking a minor, recruiting and grooming four girls to have sexual encounters with Epstein between 1994 and 2004.
A U.S. Circuit Judge, Alison Nathan, said that she didn’t see Maxwell express any remorse or accept responsibility.
“Maxwell directly and repeatedly and over the course of many years participated in a horrific scheme to entice, transport and traffic underage girls, some as young as 14, for sexual abuse by and with Jeffrey Epstein,” Nathan said. “The damage done to these young girls was incalculable.”
It’s widely known that Bill Clinton went on Epstein’s private plane, nicknamed the ”Lolita Express”. The flight logs show at least 26 times, from 2011 to 2003.
The New York Post reported in 2020 that Bill Clinton and Ghislaine Maxwell were having an affair.
The outlet reported:
The coziness between the former president and the charming British socialite drew notice in New York social circles. Clinton and Maxwell were spotted dining together at the Madison Avenue Italian mainstay Nello, according to a 2002 New York magazine article, which described Maxwell as a “man-eater” in the same paragraph. When Clinton went stag to a New York education charity gala in late 2001 — Hillary declined to attend — Maxwell was reportedly at his side.
The relationship also carried over to the Clinton Global Initiative and Clinton Foundation. Maxwell became somewhat of a fixture at these events. It was there where she was even served court papers about her participation in Epstein’s abuse.
On July 31, 2010, Maxwell was among the few guests to attend Chelsea Clinton’s wedding at the former Astor estate in Rhinebeck, New York. This auspicious event followed an embarrassing incident for Maxwell.
“Only a few months earlier, while attending the Clinton Global Initiative in New York City, at the end of an Indian summer, in September 2009, a process server walked through the packed lobby of the Sheraton Hotel…and served Ghislaine Maxwell papers for a deposition,” the journalist Conchita Sarnoff recalls.
“Maxwell…was huddled in a small group talking to other guests” as the server approached her. He “called out her name and…with so many people surrounding her, Maxwell was unsuspecting. She confirmed her identity and he served her notice. The deposition was in relation to Epstein’s sexual abuse case. The server left at once,” Sarnoff writes in her book, TrafficKing.
An investigation into the Epstein and Maxwell connection to the Clintons has not formally started, but, hopefully, it will be looked into.
“Get the F*** Out Of Here!” IIhan Omar Humiliated At A Concert; Watch The Crowd Boo & Chant for Her To Leave, “Don’t Do This…”￼
Far-left radical IIhan Omar, a U.S. representative for Minnesota’s 5th congressional district, has been one of the most hated representatives by conservative voters since her first days of being in D.C in 2019.
There are many reasons for her dislike by proud Americans across the country, the first of which is the fact that America took her in from her home country of Mogadishu, Somalia after she secured asylum in the U.S. and arrived in New York in 1995.
You would think that she would love our country for accepting and allowing her to become a member of our great country where she was given the opportunity to work her way up as a congresswoman, but of course, you would be wrong.
Instead of loving our country, she hates it. She is a member of “The Squad” a small group of radicals in congress who equally hate all the values that make our country so great and instead want to turn our country into a socialist sh*thole.
It is this level of disrespect for our country which is why she is so hated by the American public, and that disgust for her was shown at a concert in her home state recently.
After being introduced on stage with her husband, the crowd immediately began to boo and you could hear Omar say, “Okay, okay, okay, okay, okay, we don’t have all night”.
Leftism on Twitter tweeted a video with a caption saying, ‘Ilhan Omar got booed onstage at a concert featuring Somali singer Soldaan Seraar in Minnesota last night. People in the crowd chanted “Get out!” & shouted “Get the f*ck out of here!”.’
Libs of TikTok also tweeted a video with a caption saying, ‘Watch Ilhan Omar get booed for a minute straight at a concert in Minnesota featuring a Somalian singer’
Rebecca Branon tweeted a video with a caption saying, ‘Congresswoman Ilhan Omar was booed last night by thousands of the Minneapolis Somali community last night at a Somalia Independence Day celebration concert. “Go home! Go home!”‘
BREAKING: An Unusual Lawsuit Has Been Filed By General Michael Flynn And Its A Restraining Order Against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi￼
General Michael Flynn has filed a motion to quash a subpoena issued by the House Select Committee to Investigate the Attack on the United States Capitol on January 6th. He also filed a request for a preliminary injunction and a temporary restraining order against Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
All nine members of the Select Committee were identified as defendants in the complaint, whereas Pelosi was designated as the only defendant in the motion. Flynn was briefly in the administration of former President Donald Trump for a few weeks before resigning on February 13, 2017.
However, the House committee investigating the events of January 6 has surprisingly focused on Flynn. Flynn was served with a subpoena in November, requiring him to give over papers and attend a deposition.
“By November 23, 2021, the Subpoena ordered General Flynn to deliver records in answer to twenty broad and imprecise demands spanning a year and a half. It also ordered General Flynn to attend a deposition on December 6, 2021, according to the lawsuit.
The lawsuit said that on Jan. 6 (and at all times relevant to the subpoena and committee inquiry), Gen. Flynn was a private citizen who had personal questions and opinions about the 2020 election’s legitimacy — but that was not a crime, according to the complaint.
“It is not a criminal to have such opinions, whether true or incorrect, to discuss them with others, to socialize with individuals who share such beliefs, or to petition the government to address such political problems,” according to the submission.
Flynn expressed reservations about the subpoena. The committee, on the other hand, “obstinately refused to give any clarification or cooperation to settle these difficulties,” according to the complaint. According to the lawsuit, the committee has been hurrying to report any non-cooperative witnesses to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution for contempt of Congress.
“As a result, General Flynn is trapped between two options, both of which risk criminal prosecution by the Department of Justice, either as part of an ongoing criminal investigation or as part of a new prosecution for contempt of Congress,” according to the brief. The complaint questioned the constitutionality of Flynn’s subpoena in general.
Flynn’s complaint asks the House committee for declaratory and injunctive relief, which would prevent the subpoena from being enforced. Separately, Flynn filed a request seeking a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction against Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi alone. The motion claimed that Flynn had no role in planning, speaking at, or participating in the Jan. 6 demonstrations, protests, or incursions and that the subpoena is also an affront to Flynn’s constitutional rights.
In addition to interactions with government officials, the subpoena wants documents of General Flynn’s discussions concerning the 2020 election, as well as the foundation for his ideas and the people with whom he engaged.
As a result, it is a direct attack on his First Amendment rights to freedom of expression, association, and petition,” according to the motion. It also claimed that the subpoena will violate his 5th Amendment rights because “the records and testimony seek to undermine General Flynn’s protection against compelled self-incrimination under the Fifth Amendment.”
The motion also claimed that the committee’s decision to issue the subpoena was erroneous. It was issued “not for a lawful legislative purpose, but rather for the partisan harassment of a person because he has political beliefs the Select Committee dislikes,” according to the committee’s own authorizing resolution.
If granted, the temporary restraining order would prevent Flynn from giving a deposition or providing records. Pelosi would also be barred from enforcing the challenged subpoenas or utilizing any records collected as a result of them.
Following any appropriate briefing or hearing, Flynn’s motion urged that if the temporary restraining order is granted, it be turned into a preliminary injunction. This would effectively stop Pelosi and the select committee from implementing the subpoenas, thereby shutting down the Flynn inquiry.

BREAKING: Nick Sandmann SETTLES Lawsuit Against NBC. This Marks The Third Victory In His Series Of Defamation Cases
Today, former Covington Catholic student, Nicholas Sandmann announced on Twitter that he has just reached a confidential settlement with NBC in his defamation lawsuit against the news network.
“At this time I would like to release that NBC and I have reached a settlement. The terms are confidential,” Sandmann wrote on Twitter.
This makes it three of several lawsuits that were filed by Sandmann against various mainstream media outlets following his encounter with Nathan Phillips at the Lincoln memorial.
He was slandered by liberal media outlets who immediately rushed to a conclusion as soon as the story came out without taking the time to research the whole story.
He had previously settled with CNN back in January 2020 in what many claim to be a “multi-million dollar” defamation lawsuit. Later in July 2020, he also settled a similar lawsuit against The Washington Post.

“I Won’t Apologize” Jordan Peterson Refuses to Back Down To Communist Twitter, Says “I Would Rather Die Than…”￼
Jordan Peterson is the latest target of the left to be canceled. Jordan Peterson has been in the cross hairs before, so this isn’t new. The left has been waiting for a chance to hit him where it hurts:
His Twitter account.
Jordan Peterson said in a tweet:
“Remember when Pride was a sin? And Ellen Page just had her breasts removed by a criminal physician.”
Source: Jordan Peterson’s tweet
Noticed how he said, “Ellen Page?” This is called dead naming in our near dystopian world. The correct name is Elliot Page, and Peterson should have used the correct pronouns such as “he, they,” or if he is feeling zany, “ze.” Put all these corrections together, and you form a sentence like this one:
“And Elliot Page just had his breasts removed.”
If you are thinking, “Men don’t have breasts.” Well then, Twitter has a message for you:
“Violating our rules against hateful conduct. You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability or serious disease. By clicking Delete, you acknowledge that your Tweet violated the Twitter Rules.
If you think we’ve made a mistake, submit an appeal to us. Please note that should you do so, your account will remain locked while we review your appeal.”
This was Twitter’s response to Jordon Petterson’s unethical tweet. To spineless Jellyfish, the solution is simple; take the tweet down. However, Jordan Peterson has recently written his response and dissected Twitter’s response so perfectly as to why he won’t kowtow to the Newspeak overlords of Twitter on The Daily Wire.
“The suspension will not be lifted unless I delete the “hateful” tweet in question, and I would rather die than do that.”
Some people may think this is a strange hill to die on, but in reality, it never should have gotten this far. If you are old enough to remember the late 80s and 90s, then you remember the phrase “Politically correct.” Some of you may even remember a friend or family member that Political correctness is a form of censorship and a way to control people’s behavior. They have warned to deaf ears that Political correctness was only a gateway to what will get worse, and they were right.
Notice how the words “politically correct” aren’t used as much? That’s because it’s called; “hate speech, bigotry, racist, sexist” or any other name in the leftist debate handbook.
“By clicking Delete, you acknowledge that your Tweet violated the Twitter Rules.”
This sentence from Twitter’s response to Jordan Peterson’s tweet should send shivers up your spine. Allow me to remind you of the classic book 1984 by George Orwell.
Remember when the main character Winston was tortured? Remember when O’Brien, the man who oversaw Winston’s torture? Rember how O’Brien wanted Winston to say he was holding up five fingers? Remember that O’Brien was holding up four fingers and not five? Remember how Winston wouldn’t be freed of his torture until he agreed to whatever O’Brien wanted him to say or believe?
“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two makes four.” George Orwell wrote. It is the freedom to say that men don’t get pregnant, no matter how much Twitter wants to torture us until we agree with their nonsense.

Bad News For Disney, DeSantis Is Back And Has This To Say About Their WOKE Agenda “Trust Me, Under No Circumstances…”￼
There are three views on the right of DeSantis’s retaliation against Disney. One is populist. “Woke corporations need to be put in their place. If they want to target the Republican agenda, they should expect to be targeted in turn by state power.”
It was recently reported that the second is classical liberal. “Whatever the merits of Disney’s views, they have a right to them. Using state power to punish them is viewpoint discrimination. It contradicts the spirit of the First Amendment and smells of a banana republic.”
The third is a hybrid view typically held by traditional conservatives who are populist-curious, shall we say. “Retaliating against Disney would be questionable if DeSantis intended to follow through on it, but he doesn’t. It’s kabuki. He’s going to figure out a way to undo this. All he wanted was to throw a scare into Disney and other woke companies by showing them what could happen eventually if they don’t stay out of politics. He’s not going to strip them of their district.”
Watch this short clip from an appearance he made today. He says of the bill he signed eliminating Disney’s special improvement district, “That was really the first step in what’s going to be a process to make sure that Disney should not run its own government.” That doesn’t sound like kabuki to me.
Those who hold the hybrid view have failed to understand something DeSantis grasps, which is that the only litmus test that matters in populist politics is the next one. Mike Pence showed slavish loyalty to Trump for four years, but when Trump finally asked him to do something illegal on January 6 and he refused, insurrectionist goons were chanting “Hang Mike Pence” as they pushed into the Capitol. None of Pence’s many previous acts of service to Trump mattered at that point. He had failed the most recent litmus test — a big one, to be sure — and so he was a “traitor.” Instantly.
Charles Cooke at NRO made the point in a podcast last week that the same illogic applies to the Disney mess in Florida. If you support the “don’t say gay” law and you also support DeSantis calling Disney out for failing to apply their allegedly high moral standards to China, the fact that you passed those two populist litmus tests won’t stop you from being called a “traitor” if you fail the next litmus test, whether the state should rescind Disney’s district. DeSantis didn’t need to make that move: It’ll be an administrative nightmare for the neighboring counties, it may inadvertently reduce Disney’s tax and debt obligations (which DeSantis is keen to deny in the clip), it’ll expose Florida to an array of litigation touching on free speech and property rights, and it’s all in service to retaliating against Disney over a policy fight which DeSantis …
