Sixth Circuit Appellate Court Upholds Ban on Pediatric Trans-Affirming Medicine

The Appellate Court upheld Kentucky’s and Tennessee’s laws that ban “gender-affirming” medicines and surgeries from being prescribed or performed on minors.  Watch Walsh’s video and you’ll hear just how total a defeat this was for the trans-lobby.  This was not a narrow decision but a refutation of the legitimacy of gender-affirming medicine and all the allegations that it was beneficial for minors.

Walsh is right that this victory should give us hope that other than in hopelessly benighted areas like the West Coast and the Northeast, judges will allow state governments to protect their children from this barbaric and criminal medical malpractice.

I’ve stated before that this cause, stopping this madness, is a politically powerful and morally obvious winner of a fight.  Most people see clearly how outrageous this whole trans-movement is.  The idea that an explosion of children are confused about whether they are boys or girls is a dangerous situation that should be remedied not embraced.

Eliminating the profit motive from this racket is an important first step.  The next step is to look at doctors who perform these procedures on adults and investigate whether they do more harm than good to the patients who come to them for such radical and dangerous procedures that at best produce cosmetic changes and at worst ruin the health and sometimes kill the patients involved.

At the very least, laws should be put in place allowing class-action suits to be brought against physicians and medical centers that practice these horrendously risky procedures that provide no meaningful benefit to the mentally unstable people who seek out these treatments.

I think if the Republicans in red states have half a brain they would ride this horse right through to the 2024 elections.  Even some of the blue states would probably be fertile grounds to attack the trans-medical-industrial complex and expose the money being raked in and the lives being destroyed by this supposedly humane approach to confused children.  I think enough horror stories are already available to educate people out there to the realities of all of this and use the resulting outrage to flush many politicians and mental health officials out of office.

But the stupid party is just that.  Stupid.

I Ask for Donald Trump and You Give Me Nikki Haley?

The headline reads, “Major GOP donors eye Nikki Haley and Ron DeSantis as the top Trump alternatives.”  Farther down it says,

“Mark Harris, the lead strategist at the pro-Haley Stand for America super PAC, released a memo after the debate touting the position of the lone woman in the primary “after two strong debates.” A Haley fundraising appeal on Thursday told supporters she has been “FLOODED with a nonstop SURGE OF SUPPORT,” following the debate.”

So, Nikki Haley is surging.  Her support is rising.  Well my stomach is surging and churning and my gorge is rising just thinking about her.

You know, I think I’d prefer Joe Biden as president rather than Hikki Haley.  It’s hard to imagine but I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t get my vote over Nikki Haley.  Except maybe Barack Obama.  He might be a tad worse.  Luckily, he’s blocked on constitutional grounds.  But even JEB! would be preferable to her.  Romney would be close.  They have a lot in common.  The smug elitist attitude, the tone-deaf position on conservative issues.  But I think even Mitt would get my vote instead of Haley.

It’s amazing to think that establishment Republican operatives see Haley as a top choice.  But it makes sense.  She gives them a candidate that they can package as checking off all the right boxes.  Female, check.  Non-white, check.  Pro-abortion, check.  Pro-Ukraine, check.  Pro-Gaia, check.  Smug elitist attitude, check, check, check.  These are the people who gave us John McCain and Mitt Romney for president.  They know a cheerful loser when they see one.

So, look, this isn’t shocking or even surprising.  The powers that be will select the least authentic, most bought and paid for loser they can find.  And that is Nikki Haley through and through.  Then, why am I writing about this?  Because it makes me crazy knowing that they’ll keep doing this over and over again.

And this is why Donald Trump is the only candidate I can vote for.  He’s the protest vote against all of this phony nonsense.  Even after W, McCain, Romney, JEB and everything that went on in 2020 they still try to push Nikki Haley as a conservative.  It’s enough to make you want to throw up.  Because what they’re saying basically is, “Either you’re too stupid to see what we’re doing or too weak to stop us from doing it and we don’t even care which it is.”

And so, if in November 2024 the ballot for president has the name Nikki Haley as the Republican candidate I’ll vote for the Democrat.  Even if it’s Joe Biden.  Even if it’s Kamala Harris.  Heaven help me, even if it’s the stupidest man on planet Earth, Don Lemon, I’ll vote for him.

I’m not voting for their clowns anymore.  Bought and sold won’t work.  We’ve gotten a look behind the curtain and we’re not likely to forget.  So, 2024 can be the beginning of the new world.  No one votes for fake conservatives anymore and we abandon federal elections until our choices are credible.  No more Mitt Romneys, no more Bushes and definitely no more Nikki Haleys.  Boycotting these phonies is precisely what will change things.  In the meantime, local politicians will gain in importance and eventually one of them will be the clear choice in presidential elections.

Who knows, maybe a new party will replace the Republicans.  The time is past ripe for it.  Once the party starts losing every election I could see a massive defection of conservative Republicans to a third party at some point.  That would leave the phonies and the grifters like Mitch McConnell and Lindsay Graham high and dry and all alone.  I guess they can call up their old friend Nikki Haley and see what she’s up to.

The Shape of Things to Come – 2023 Edition

I was reading an article about shoplifting and the author said something like, the way things are going having food on open display in a grocery store may soon be too expensive to allow because of shoplifting.  And that struck me.  Imagine if you couldn’t walk down the aisles of a supermarket and pick out your fruit and meat or even a can of beans or a box of spaghetti.  Imagine if you couldn’t go to a big box store and get some nails or screws or a saw because the store couldn’t afford to leave these things on shelves.

So that’s what they mean about a society going from high trust to low trust.  The stores can’t trust the public not to steal everything in sight.  That got me thinking, where else has trust disappeared.?

Well, off the top of my head, you can’t trust that your public school isn’t trying to groom your kids for homosexuality or even stranger things like trans -gender dysphoria.  And you certainly can’t trust the Republicans to be conservative.  You can’t trust anything about the government.  You can’t trust scientists to tell the truth about the climate or the drug companies with your health.  You can’t trust the tech companies with your information and you absolutely can’t believe a word that the news organizations say.  And we used to depend on the police and the courts to keep us safe from criminals but that’s gone too.

If you think about it, the world we knew was based on a bunch of relationships of trust that no longer exist.

Based on this, I think it would make sense to try to imagine what the world will be like in a few years when all of these changes have reworked our relationships with each other and the larger institutions around us.  The first thing that came to me was that where you lived would become increasingly important to determine how you would live.  Currently the larger cities run by Democrats with large poor minority populations are becoming more and more like third world locales with businesses moving out and increasing rates of violence.  It would make sense that around these disaster areas will develop concentric rings of suburban areas where the levels of crime and other dysfunction will gradually decrease as you move outward in much the same way as a topographic map records rings of decreasing elevation in circles around mountain peaks.

Proximity to these danger zones will also determine things like the existence of stores selling luxury merchandise and levels of safety precautions like bars on windows and security systems in homes.  Of course, the definition of “luxury” will be completely relative to the wealth of the area.  In some places toothpaste may be a luxury item.

Security problems like these may explain the real basis for the “fifteen-minute city.”  What these enclaves are really designed for is excluding strangers from the area.  The kind of surveillance that will be possible in the future will make the non-local with no business in an area stand out like a sore thumb.  After all, if you have nothing to hide why worry if the government knows everything about you?  So, only people that the government thinks should be somewhere will be able to get there.  No freedom, no crime.  Pretty slick.

But out among the peasants, not so slick.  It appears that there is an intentional destruction of the old world going on.  People living together in free association, voluntarily following sensible rules and laws, will be overwhelmed by the encouragement of criminal behavior in dysfunctional communities that won’t be constrained by police forces and the old legal system.  The new world of the elites will be separated and insulated from these areas by diminishing transportation options, advanced electronic surveillance systems and a social credit system that will control what you can do and how you will live.

This seems to be the direction things are going.  Whether this plan will be successful in all or some places and how long it will take to implement is yet to be seen.  But that is what seems to be happening.  Otherwise, how do you explain what’s going on in Portland, Seattle, San Francisco and Philadelphia?  These cities are being made unlivable by the people in charge and so far, nothing has been done to stop the change.

I hope it is within reason that some areas of the country will successfully prevent this program of sabotage from succeeding.  If they can restore law and order to their jurisdictions, I think the existence of these oases of normalcy will eventually destabilize the new system.  Maybe colonies from the normal areas will eventually establish themselves in the depopulated wastelands and eventually return them to civilization.  But maybe I’m being overly optimistic.

Okay H.G, Wells, how’s that for some extrapolation into the future?  In your face Herbert.

Dianne Feinstein Blazes the Trail For Joe Biden


Ninety year old Dianne Feinstein has shown the way for Biden, Pelosi and McConnell by croaking in office.  No cause of death was announced but informed sources were speculating that the natural half-life of the protons in her body had been exceeded and she just evaporated.

On being informed of Feinstein’s passing Joe Biden was heard to say, “She was hot, she will be missed.  No joke.”  When her colleague in the Senate Mitch McConnell heard the sad news he was so affected that he stood for twenty minutes staring into space while soundlessly opening and closing his jaws.  Nancy Pelosi mounted the Speaker’s rostrum and spoke in impassioned gibberish for half an hour until Kevin McCarthy turned off her microphone and called security.

Well, Feinstein is a lot like our society.  It’s decrepit and demented but there doesn’t seem to be a way to change it yet.  Hopefully when the collapse occurs something better will take over, something better than Adam Schiff.

Trudeau and Zelensky give Standing Ovation to Waffen SS Veteran

You just can’t make this stuff up.  In case anyone wasn’t aware of the Ukrainian fighters during the Second World War who sided with the Nazis, the Canadians managed to find one living in Canada, ninety eight year old Yaroslav Hunka.  And just to be sure his bona fides couldn’t be doubted Hunka was a member of the Waffen SS, the worst of the worst of the Nazi war machine.

So they give him a standing ovation and Zelensky and Trudeau cheer.  Hunka killed lots of Russians!  Yay!  Well, among others.  Now Poland is trying to extradite the nonagenarian for war crimes and the Canadian Speaker of the House of Commons has resigned.  Of course Trudeau claims himself blameless.  I guess utter stupidity is a defense in Canada. And no one would accuse Trudeau of intelligence.  Trudeau was the guy who called the truck drivers that didn’t want the COVID vaccines “fascists.”  Brilliant.

So for the last year or so there’s been all kinds of information about Ukrainian troops in the Azov Assault Brigade who were associated with antisemitism and used Nazi iconography in their uniforms and tattoos.  The American press has shouted down any attempt to highlight this link to fascistic sympathies in Ukraine.  Well, Canada has rendered the point moot.  They managed to dig up the last living Ukrainian Nazi just in time to tar Zelensky and Trudeau together.  While they were at it why didn’t they goose step in a line and give him the Nazi salute too?

Well done Canada, well done.

Guest Contributor – War Pig – 28SEP2023 – Quick Ukraine War Update

Been rather busy. Have had to catch a military cargo hop to Joe’s town  twice this month.  The assassination of the Wagnerian boss is causing more trouble in the evil empire than you would think. Him and his deputy were the most capable commanders the Emperor had.  On the wider front, the Ukes aren’t doing quite as well as they claim, but the Empire is faring far worse than they claim as well. Big reorganization going on. The Emperor doesn’t want to believe how much corruption has had and is still having on his forces. They are desperate for oriental technology but as others are finding out, the Oriental’s weapons are mostly paper dragons. The Hermit has offered supplies for long boomers but they want just not cash but concessions. They are taking a chance that the Emperor will not be replaced by some internal Sith lord.


More as I get a chance.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia – Part 1

I figure I’ll see if this can have future installments.  After all Philly seems to be on a roll.  Imagine being a cop in that place.

The Real Reset

The Global American Empire (or whatever you prefer to call it) seems to be unravelling.  In a recent Wall Street Journal article, “The Rules-Based International Order Is Quietly Disintegrating” it was noted that Western institutions like the United Nations, the G-20, the World Court, the IMF and the World Trade Organization have fallen into disrepute and are routinely ignored or disparaged.

Evidence can be seen in the recent annual opening of the UN General Assembly in which Joe Biden was the only leader of the five permanent members of the Security Council to show up at all.  Now it’s obvious why Russia’s and even China’s leader isn’t travelling to New York City.  Even ignoring the threat of attack by homeless zombies and gang bangers America’s largest city is no longer neutral territory in this new cold war.

It’s not so much that the West has become suddenly weaker.  That has been a slow, steady process.  What has accelerated is the sense that the American Empire is no longer an honest broker between the various nations and power blocks.  Recent behavior has demonstrated that the West has become capricious and underhanded in its dealings with other nations both large and small.  Its actions in the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, Eastern Europe and Central Asia have been heavy-handed, arrogant and clumsy.  In fact, the Africans have recently stated that whereas the Chinese provide assistance on projects, the West provides lectures on LGBTQ awareness.  And that synchs up with the recent spate of coups in West Africa and the calls for the French and the Americans to remove their troops from the region.

The larger question is where does this trend lead?  Much of America’s power is based on its reputation for stability and competency both economically and politically.  None of those things seem true lately.  The COVID lockdowns and the political theater that characterizes the Biden administration and its military actions in Afghanistan and Ukraine all reinforce the impression of a country racked with muddled thinking and dangerous instability.  Because of this the actions of the Western nations no longer seem to have the clout they formerly possessed.

The prime example is the Ukraine debacle.  The West has been using economic sanctions against Russia and military assistance to Ukraine to punish Vladimir Putin for resisting the West’s plan to weaponize Ukraine and bring a hostile military power to the very border of Russia.

Against expectations, the sanctions have failed to crash the Russian economy and instead have badly damaged the economies of several European states including Germany which received a large part of its energy supply as Russian gas until the United States sabotaged the underwater pipeline that supplied the gas.

And the war itself is not going as expected with Ukraine fighting valiantly but finding its manpower exhausted and facing economic and societal ruin through the disruptions it’s suffering through.

And the war has fostered a much closer relationship between Russia and China.  China sees what has happened to Russia with Ukraine and they recognize a similar situation for themselves with respect to America’s attitude about Taiwan.  And this strategic partnership between China and Russia is strengthened by their economic and monetary relationship in the BRICS economic grouping which in addition to those two countries, includes India, Brazil and South Africa and soon will expand to include Argentina, Egypt, Ethiopia, Iran, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

So, all in all, “the West” is facing serious challenges to its economic and military supremacy for the first time since the end of the Cold War.  And without a doubt the trouble is almost completely self-inflicted.

The article finishes with this summary of the latest woes:

“States are imploding and the rule of law is disappearing across large parts of the world. In Latin America, narco-trafficking crime organizations have infiltrated or supplanted weak states. Something similar is happening in the Sahel, with jihadist groups and bandits openly defying the authority of shambolic governments. Russia, China and Iran are happily fishing in these troubled waters, with few signs of effective Western responses to a growing security threat. The ignominious collapse of French power across Africa has been more dramatic, but the palsied incompetence of American responses to the erosion of civil order among our own neighbors is at least equally disgraceful, and equally grave.”

Up until a few years ago I would have viewed this upending of the supremacy of the Western world order with horror.  Now I think it may be for the best and may clear the way for America to return to its correct mission, serving the needs and goals of the people who live here and let the world muddle through on its own.

Out With the Old, In with the New

I look at the headlines today and see:

  • Link” “ABC News/WashPost: Trump 52, Biden 42”
  • Link” “Biden Poll Freakout”
  • Link” “Democrats Fear Party Leaders Are Too Bullish About Biden’s 2024 Odds: ‘They’re Playing Russian Roulette’”
  • Link” “FBI agent says prosecutors thwarted Hunter Biden charges, corroborating IRS whistleblowers”
  • Link” “‘Missing witness’ in Biden corruption probe offers dirt on Hunter FBI ‘mole’ who tipped him off”

Huh?  What the heck is going on here?

Bidenomics is leading us into the strongest economy in human history.  Open borders and equity-driven justice has made our cities the envy of the world (or, at least, of Brazil and Venezuela).  And our compassion for gender non-conforming toddlers is taking the breath away of progressives in Sweden and Britain who used to take the lead in this kind of thing (until some late breaking data caught their attention).

All these bed-wetters in the Democrat party panicking when everything is going great?

Alright, maybe it really is time to pull the plug on Dementia Joe before the primaries get going.

I’m fascinated by trying to guess how they’ll do it.  Do they leave a horse’s head in the West Wing or would that be too subtle?  Does Merrick Garland show up in the Oval Office with a folder that has pictures of Hunter handing Joe a bulging trash bag with a huge dollar sign stenciled on it?

Would they do something drastic?  I mean it’s not like these guys have any qualms about breaking a few eggs to make an omelet.  But I’m just afraid that we’ll never really know how the play went down.  I think they owe it to history (and comedy) to provide a YouTube video showing the whole thing.

Personally, I think the perfect way would be to set up a presidential address to the nation for Joe and then just have the teleprompter read that Joe is retiring after the end of his term.  By the time he figures out what it means he’ll have already announced the end of his presidency.

Now who do they replace him with in the election?  Everyone says Gavin Newsome, Gavin Newsome!  Well, I guess, but maybe there are better choices.  I think Mayor Pete is the obvious go to.

His qualifications are obvious.  Everything about him screams “commander in chief.”  And he is the face of a new generation, a generation much less worried about annoying details like laws of nature, facts and success.  With Pete we’ll get Joe Biden’s insouciance but without the wrinkles and with significantly fewer falls on the tarmac and the podium.

But if Pete is too young and inexperienced then go with a proven winner.

Admiral Rachel Levine is the whole package (well in some senses).  Her free-wheeling, sashay through the world of gender affirmation has taken the country by storm.  Throw in the uniform and it’s pretty hard to deny that America is crying out for this new kind of leadership.  Can you imagine not voting for her in the general election?  I dare you!

But if I’ve still left you unconvinced then let’s circle back to the obvious choice

Instead of letting Biden wait out his first term just have him shipped off to the funny farm now and presto, change-o Kamala Harris is the incumbent.  From there the campaign will be one long slog through the cities and suburbs of America with Kamala professing her love for school busses, post-it notes and kinetic desk toys like the drinking bird and fidget spinners.  It’s been claimed that the average IQ of Americans has decreased about ten points per decade.  It’s quite possible that Kamala is now “the one.”  She may be the perfect fit for the new America.  And who are we to stand in the way of progress (or regress).

After all, yellow school busses.
