Another bigotry move by hating tRump people. Trump Administration Petitions Supreme Court To Legalize Firing People Merely For Being Transgender

Trump Administration Petitions Supreme Court To Legalize Firing People Merely For Being Transgender

Dominic Holden reports at Buzzfeed News:

The Trump administration on Friday took one of its most aggressive steps yet to legalize anti-transgender discrimination by telling the Supreme Court that federal law allows firing workers solely for being transgender, arguing a Michigan funeral home could fire a transgender woman because she wanted to wear women’s clothing on the job.

Although the administration was expected to take the stance — and had previously said firing workers on the basis of gender identity is legal under federal law — the latest court filing asks the nation’s top court to establish federal case law in a potentially sweeping setback for LGBTQ rights nationwide.

The fetus controls the mother, but the baby has no right to health care, food, or daycare.

Republican policies are killing the birth rate for white people. The goal of Republican policies is to make caring for a child almost impossible.

Trump Administration Proposes Rule Allowing Federal Contractors To Discriminate Against LGBTs And Others

Trump Administration Proposes Rule Allowing Federal Contractors To Discriminate Against LGBTs And Others

Dominic Holden reports at Buzzfeed News:

The Trump administration on Wednesday formally proposed a new rule to let businesses with federal contracts cite religious objections as a valid reason to discriminate against their workers on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, LGBTQ status, and other characteristics — thereby skirting worker protections created by past presidents.

But the Trump administration makes clear in the draft rule that a corporation needn’t focus entirely on religion to qualify, saying, “The contractor must be organized for a religious purpose, meaning that it was conceived with a self-identified religious purpose. This need not be the contractor’s only purpose.”

Thousands of immigrants suffer in solitary confinement in U.S. detention centers. Newly obtained documents show that ICE detainees are sometimes placed in solitary for reasons that have nothing to do with rule violations.

There is far more at the link below than I quoted.  The horror and abuse of these people at the hands of the US is beyond shocking / stunning.   It is the systematic degradation and humiliation of certain groups to dehumanize, terrorize, and express bigotry and hatred for them.   Again government thugs get to commit actions forbidden to do to prisoners of war.  We have to stop this.  History will show what monsters we became during this time.    Hugs

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/immigration/thousands-immigrants-suffer-solitary-confinement-u-s-detention-centers-n1007881

The newly obtained documents paint a disturbing portrait of a system where detainees are sometimes forced into extended periods of isolation for reasons that have nothing to do with violating any rules.

Disabled immigrants in need of a wheelchair or cane. Those who identify as gay. Those who report abuse from guards or other detainees.

Only half of the cases involved punishment for rule violations. The other half were unrelated to disciplinary concerns — they involve the mentally ill, the disabled or others who were sent to solitary largely for what ICE described as safety reasons.

A Guatemalan man spent two months in solitary confinement at a county jail in Maryland. The reason: He had a prosthetic leg.

A mentally ill Ukrainian man was put in isolation for 15 days at a detention facility in Arizona. His offense: putting half a green pepper in one of his socks.

In nearly a third of the cases, segregated detainees were determined by ICE to have a mental illness, a population especially vulnerable to the harmful effects of isolation.

“We have created and continue to support a system that involves widespread abuse of human beings,” said Ellen Gallagher, a policy adviser at the Department of Homeland Security.

Gallagher, who is speaking publicly for the first time, has spent the past five years trying to sound the alarm within the federal government about the rampant use of solitary confinement on vulnerable people in ICE custody.

“People were being brutalized,” she said.

Proud Boys Make Threatening Visit To Critic’s Home

Proud Boys Make Threatening Visit To Critic’s Home

The Daily Beast reports:

Members of the far-right Proud Boys men’s group allegedly made a threatening late-night visit recently to the home of one of their critics, the latest in the group’s escalating actions against its detractors.

Gwen Snyder, an amateur researcher in Philadelphia who tracks the group’s movements, wasn’t at home when a group of men visited her residence around 11 p.m. on June 29.

Instead, the men talked to her neighbor, according to Snyder, and warned that Snyder needed to stop posting the names of Proud Boys members and other information on Twitter. “You tell that fat bitch she better stop,” one of the Proud Boys allegedly said, according to Snyder.

Georgia GOP Lawmaker Used Legal Loophole to Help Molesting **Priest** Avoid Prison

** Edit note:  The title uses the word “priest” while the article clearly says that Jason Brothers was a Preacher.   Sorry for any confusions.  Hugs **

Georgia GOP Lawmaker Used Legal Loophole to Help Molesting Priest Avoid Prison

In 2012, Ohio preacher Jason Brothers stayed at the home of a family in Georgia when he was giving a guest sermon at North Mt. Zion Church of God in Hiawassee. When the family’s 14-year-old girl got up for a drink of water that night, Brothers, who was in a wheelchair due to his cerebral palsy, asked her for a hug… then raped her.

The girl only told her parents what happened after they caught her trying to end her own life.

This week, Jason Brothers was sentenced for his crime. The punishment involves no prison time, going back home to Ohio, and remaining on probation for another four years. In other words, nothing of any consequence even though he admitted to two counts of felony sexual battery on a minor.

The reason for that has everything to do with his attorney: Republican House Speaker David Ralston.

And what was Ralston doing when he requested these delays for state business?

Two complaints with the State Bar of Georgia filed by victims in other cases have accused him of campaigning and fundraising when he told judges he couldn’t come to court; Ralston has defended that practice, too, telling The Augusta Chronicle he’d think about stopping “if George Soros will promise that he will not send any more money into Georgia.”

*** Edited to include this information.   Hugs ***

The AJC and Channel 2 also note that, since Ralston became House Speaker in 2010, “he cited his legislative responsibilities to delay 226 cases a total of 966 times.” They also note that he expanded the legal loophole so delays could be granted year-round instead of just when the legislature was in session.

Court rules it was legal for jail guards to force female inmates to strip, remove tampons for ‘training exercise’

https://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/453920-court-rules-it-was-legal-for-jail-guards-to-force-female

The two Republican appoint judges approve of this treatment and said it did not violate the women’s rights.  Read what they called these women.  This is clearly a hate tactic.  If this is not a violation of civil rights what could be.  Imagine hearing this was done in a different country, we would be outraged.  Imagine if it was you that was forced to do this.  I hope there is some way to appeal this ruling.   Hugs

During the incident, 200 women were told to leave their cells, only to be taken to a beauty salon that connected to a bathroom in the prison, court documents state. Documents also state that the “the beauty shop had mirrored walls, and the bathroom entry was open to the gym, the searches were visible to the people in the gym, including male and female cadets, correctional officers, and civilians.”

“One by one, they were told to raise their breasts, bend over, spread their buttocks to expose their vaginal and anal cavities, and cough. Menstruating inmates were forced to extract tampons from inside their bodies,” court documents alleged. “The female correctional officers and cadets conducting the searches made derogatory comments and gestures about the women’s bodies and odors, telling the women that they were ‘dirty bitches,’ ‘f—ing disgusting,’ ‘deserve to be in here,’ and ‘smell like death.'”

“Male correctional officers watched the women from the gym,” documents added.

“Construing the record in Appellants’ favor, as we must on summary judgment, approximately 200 female inmates were rounded up early one morning by a tactical team in riot gear,” Lee wrote. “Tightly handcuffed by guards who screamed obscenities at them, the women were taken to the gym, where they remained, handcuffed and standing, until the guards searched them. The women were not told what was happening or why. This mass strip search of female inmates was conducted solely for training purposes, but the training was not strictly necessary, as most cadets graduated without it.”

Another Christian in authority demanding everyone follow his god and religion

Air Force Capt.: Military Chaplains Who Don’t Proselytize Aren’t True Christians

Air Force Capt.: Military Chaplains Who Don’t Proselytize Aren’t True Christians

But Sonny Hernandez, a U.S. Air Force chaplain who works at the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio, disagrees. Not only does he think chaplains should promote Christianity on the clock, he believes those who don’t aren’t truly Christian.

In yet another bizarre rant on WND, Hernandez argued that Christian chaplains who aren’t promoting their personal views at every turn are cowards.

Tragically today, many military chaplains intentionally do not pray in Jesus’ name. As disgusting as this may sound, it is a very common practice today among military chaplains — among both liberal and conservative ones. These “non-sectarian” prayers are now the norm within military chaplaincy as the vast majority of chaplains have abdicated the name of Jesus due to fear and shame.

Even worse, false teachers… who masquerade as Christian military chaplains will invariably omit the name of Jesus and will argue that no chaplain should ever deliver such “sectarian” prayers publicly. Since these kinds of chaplains have not been truly born again, they will also often support homosexuality, Islam, or Mikey Weinstein and his anti-God foundation. To put it simply, a false teacher that operates under the guise of Christian chaplain will love the things that God hates while hating the things that God loves.

If a Muslim chaplain used his platform to promote Islam, he’d be out of a job immediately — and cause FOX News to talk about Sharia Law for weeks. (I would say imagine a Humanist chaplain doing the same thing… but there are none in the military.)

Incidentally, the Air Force’s own published standards prohibit leaders from “officially endorsing or disapproving of, or extending preferential treatment for any faith, belief, or absence of belief.” Hernandez is obviously breaking that rule. He deserves to be reprimanded for it.

Military chaplains provide a service to others; they cannot be missionaries looking for new recruits.

Another example of a Christian so super happy to take rights away from people , but not to help the children on our border who are in cages.

Brian Brown: New “Natural Law” Commission Provides An “Extraordinary Opening” To Challenge LGBT Rights

Brian Brown: New “Natural Law” Commission Provides An “Extraordinary Opening” To Challenge LGBT Rights

Such wonderfully loving Christians who are in complete denial of what is natural in favor of what they prefer and against what they feel is “icky”.  I am so tired of these assholes trying to take the entire country back hundreds if not thousands of years in the past to force all of us to live by their uninformed fables.   Hugs

Peter Montgomery reports at Right Wing Watch:

Anti-LGBTQ-equality activist Brian Brown declared in a message to supporters on Thursday that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s new “Commission on Unalienable Rights” provides Brown’s International Organization for the Family with “an extraordinary opening to push for clear and consistent recognition of the natural family” and “gives us a forum to challenge American foreign policy that has in the past advanced the extreme agenda of the left that has been cloaked in the language of so-called human rights.”

Pompeo’s commission, which was reportedly created without input from the State Department’s existing human rights infrastructure, will bring a “natural law” lens to a reexamination of U.S. human rights policy. As New Ways Ministry’s Bob Shine has noted, “Natural law theory has been used for a long time by Catholic Church leaders and theologians who reject LGBT people’s identities and their relationships.” Natural law theory has various strains, but as applied to sexuality and gender, it essentially argues that people whose sexual expression or gender identity is not “natural,” or who have non-procreative sex, are defying the “natural law” of God.
