The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Peddles Pro-Trans Propaganda

As numerous right-minded (note: those not led by Democrats!) states take legal steps—my home state of Georgia being one of those—to protect children from radical and irreversible medical “transgender” procedures, this past Friday (3/17/2023) the largest newspaper in Georgia, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) published an article that is littered with pro-transgender propaganda.

Of course, this is completely unsurprising. Like almost every large newspaper across the U.S., the AJC has long been little more than a left-wing rag. However, it is noteworthy the steps the left across America is taking to further the evil transgender agenda.

The article is entitled, “Trans kids say they have target on their back with GOP initiative.” The authors spend many of their words detailing the lives of several “transgender” youths in Georgia, who supposedly would be harmed by legislation aimed at protecting vulnerable children. The article does rightly note that the Georgia bill “would ban health care professionals from giving hormones such as estrogen or testosterone to transgender minors. Doctors also would not be allowed to perform surgeries on children seeking to align with their gender identity.”

One of the biggest bits of propaganda that runs throughout the piece is the idea that giving hormone treatments and radical cosmetic surgery to children is “healthcare.” Few things are further from the truth. In other words, it is not “healthcare” to mutilate and disfigure children. It is child abuse and should be treated as such.

The article details children as young five years old whose foolish parents subjected them to a “gender transition.” The authors write:

Jen Slipakoff, a Kennesaw resident, said her daughter first started talking about being transgender when she was 5. Up until then she had been raised as a boy. She’s 15 now.

“We already knew exactly what was happening before she ever said anything,” Slipakoff said. “She has an older brother, so our house was full of traditional boys toys. And our daughter would play with those toys in a very different way than our son was. She would take her little soldiers shopping instead of putting them on the battlefield. She was always drawn to what we would consider traditional girls toys and traditional female clothing.”

When she turned 5, she asked her mother to change her name.

The article also reports on a family with two “transgender” children:

Someone who is nonbinary doesn’t identify as strictly male or female. Dare, a 16-year-old from Dacula who uses “they” as their pronoun, said they were about 10 when they started to think they may be nonbinary.

“I’ve always been gender neutral my whole life,” Dare said. “My mom talks about how, when I was really little, I would pick toys from the boys aisle and the girls aisle.”

Dare and their sibling, a 13-year-old transgender boy named Jay, told their parents about their gender identities about the same time in 2020. 

Imagine that! Two “transgender” kids from the same family! As historically rare as is “transgenderism,” this would be a near statistical impossibility. Unless, of course, something else is up, which of course the AJC completely ignores. On the occurrence of “transgenderism,” Kimberly Klacik recently asked an important question with a telling answer. She asked, “Why aren’t kids in the hood transitioning to the opposite sex? I know the answer, just wanted to see if you knew.”

Interestingly, an excellent answer came from Sara Higdon, a self-described “transexual, Catholic, Veteran, minarchist/voluntaryist” who also happens to be a contributor to “Gays Against Groomers.” Answering Mrs. Klacik, Higdon writes:

Well because the typical demographic is upper middle class white kids of progressive parents. for two reasons. They have time and money to worry about such things, and have been conditioned to believe through Critical Theory that they are an oppressor and there is no way they can ever escape that status, so they see this as a way to join an oppressed class for which they are celebrated for instead of condemned. It’s the relationship between CRT and Queer theory.

Want to guess in what demographic Jen Slipakoff resides? (This will give you some clues.) The transgender craze sweeping America and various other parts of the world is not a medical phenomena but rather a social contagion, fueled by the evil LGBT arm of the radical left, and aided and abetted by the likes of the AJC.

Of course, the biggest lie behind the transgender agenda is the notion that one can change one’s sex. Almost nothing is further from the truth than the grotesque lie that sex-change is merely a medical process. The facts on who is a male and who is a female is one of the oldest truths in the history of humanity. We shouldn’t need legislation to protect children from the wicked lie that sex change is possible, but the left has brought us to this point.

Lastly, as Mrs. Slipakoff spoke before the Georgia Senate regarding the legislation, the AJC reported her saying,  

“I’m happy to report, she has never been bullied by her classmates,” Slipakoff said. “That’s not to say she doesn’t have bullies. Here in this room right now, they sponsored this bill and they’re the ones that are going to vote for it. ... She doesn’t want and she doesn’t need your protection. She wants you to leave her alone.”

Likewise, in one of the comments on the AJC article—which was a response to another comment—someone identified as “Benjamin McKoon” wrote, “Ever thought, hmmm... I wonder if this is any of my business??? Nope? Then shut the f*ck [without the asterisk] up and leave the kids alone inbred idiot.”

As the evil LGBT agenda has progressed throughout the U.S. the last several decades, “Just leave us alone!” or something similar, has been a frequent cry from LGBT activists. However, as I’ve often pointed out, “live and let live” has never been a hallmark of the LGBT agenda. This is quite evident if we only look at what’s occurred recently on the issue of “transgenderism.”

“Just deal with it,” was how a deluded Massachusetts male who’s competing as a female—and helping his school win a state title this year—put it when asked about boys competing against girls in sanctioned competitions. To help paint “transgenders” as being “targeted” in Georgia, the AJC article makes mention of how GA law, and the Georgia High School Association, requires athletes “to compete based on their biological sex.” How do you think Atlanta LGBT activists would respond to being told to “just deal with it” when it comes to this policy?

As was recently reported at Twitchy, the American left is filled with LGBT “mind your own business” hypocrites:

The radical trans Left loves to tell anyone who raises moral and ethical questions about the movement to mind their own business. Meanwhile, it’s the radical trans Left that insists on making themselves a part of everyone’s business — literally:

Georgia’s legislators, and our Governor, Brian Kemp, need to stand strong in the face of the AJC’s transgender propaganda and protect children from the hideous lies of the transgender agenda.

A Prophetic Word on Progressive Wokeness

Given that the idea of defining what is "woke" garnered so much attention this week, Pastor Mark Driscoll, in his recent sermon on "Progressive Wokeness"--(the first sermon in a new series: "New Days, Old Demons: A Study of Elijah")--does a good job defining "woke." This occurs early in the sermon. Here's the relevant quote: 

What is referred to as 'being woke' is a demonic counterfeit of being born again. Jesus said that we 'must be born again.' That means being awakened by the Spirit of God to our own sin. Being woke is the counterfeit of that. It's being awakened by demonic spirits so that you will understand that you are a good person and not a sinner, and you don't need Jesus you're your own savior.

Here's the full sermon:

The Jan. 6 “Insurrection” vs. the Numerous Subversions of the American Left

With House Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s release of thousands of hours of Capitol surveillance video footage to Tucker Carlson, and Carlson’s subsequent airing of the footage on his popular FOX News show, it’s more clear now than ever: What the American left did to Trump, on COVID, on crime (especially the ANTIFA/BLM riots), at the border, and the like, was FAR worse than anything that occurred at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

After Tucker began airing newly released Jan. 6 footage on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Monday (3/6/2023) of last week, the next day, Ben Shapiro summarized well what we learned:

The reaction to January 6th was to throw Donald Trump off all social media; it was to paint all republicans as rioters…it turns out, even a huge majority of the people who were at the Capitol, and in the Capitol that day, were not in fact rioters. And then it became the global pretext for the “attack on democracy” routine from the globalized left…What you heard from the left was that January 6th was just as important inflection point in American history as, for example, September 11th when three thousand Americans were murdered…What we heard is that all of American politics had to be recapitulated around this signal inflection point, this signal moment in American history. As it turns out from a lot of the footage, the media accounts were in fact exaggerated…[W]hat the footage that Tucker showed last night showed, is that some of the narratives that we were told were just flat out wrong, they were flat out lies…[T]he media decided that the threat to democracy was far graver that what actually happened on January 6th. Remember, we were told that democracy was nearly overthrown on January 6th. That was nonsense. …

As Tucker Carlson, himself noted, “The footage does not show an insurrection or a riot in progress. Instead, it shows police escorting protesters through the building, including the now infamous ‘QAnon Shaman.’”

Democrats continue to peddle their Jan. 6 “insurrection” lie to this day. Of course, they do this because it aids them politically, and it helps distract from their numerous domestic failures and outright political subversions that continue to plague the U.S., and have only gotten worse under the inept Biden administration.

Following his election in 2016, what was perpetrated upon Donald Trump by the Democrats and their like-minded allies in the media, the FBI, et al, can rightly be described as the “greatest political scandal” in American history. It was nothing short of an “attempted coup,” as Roger Kimball put it in February of 2019. Mr. Kimball summarizes well what happened:

On May 9 [2017], the President fires his employee, James Comey. Panic in Bureau. Scarcely a week later, the Big Boy Scout, Robert Mueller is appointed by Rod Rosenstein to be Special Counsel in charge of the Get Trump battalion. It’s a real flood the zone operation. Pre-dawn raids, full-press intimidation, careers ruined.

It’s been going on so long, and has involved so many nefarious characters in such high positions in the Obama administration and our intelligence and law enforcement services, that it is hard to keep the main fact, the overwhelming point of the episode in mind.

It is this: people in the FBI (aided and abetted by elements in the CIA and the Obama administration) decided that they didn’t like the person who had been elected President of the United States. Their anger and frustration boiled over when the President had the temerity to fire their man, James Comey. So they plotted to get rid of him.

The FBI didn’t like the President. so they plotted to remove him from office. That is the irreducible minimum, class, that you should take away from this whole sordid lesson. Top figures in the Federal Bureau of Investigation did not approve of the President. Therefore, they took steps to destroy him.

Mark Penn put it this way:

The most egregious anti-democratic actions ever taken by the what can now fairly be called the Deep State are confirmed with the publication of fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s new book detailing how the FBI and Justice Department plotted to remove President Trump from office for firing FBI Director James Comey.

Justice Department and FBI officials spied on U.S. citizens with false warrants, gave a pass to one presidential campaign with a predetermined investigation, investigated another political campaign on the basis of no verified evidence, and illegally leaked information on investigations. They discussed wiretapping and using the 25th Amendment to the Constitution to remove President Trump, and appointed a special counsel as a retaliatory move for Comey’s firing.

It is now crystal clear that the highest echelons of the Justice Department and FBI had morphed from the world’s most professional law enforcement organization into a Third World rump group.

As Daniel Greenfield well put it, “They [the Democrats] invented the Russian conspiracy, then they faked the crimes.” As their attempt to remove President Trump from office via impeachment fell apart, conveniently, COVID-19 entered the U.S. By mid-April 2020, the late, great Rush Limbaugh, as he so often did, nailed it when it came the Wuhan Virus and the Democrat Party:

Folks, look, I’m only telling you what I see. The Democrat Party wants the shutdown to go on. It’s how they benefit!...

Brutal as it may sound, partisan as it may sound, do not doubt me, please. The Democrat Party and the American left know that a continued shutdown is the only means of destroying Trump’s signature achievement. What is Trump’s signature achievement? The historic, booming economy. In three years, Trump created economic growth we haven’t seen (a lot of people) in their lifetimes.

Here comes the virus.

Here comes the shutdown.

Here comes the lockdown.

The Democrats know that keeping America shut down is the only way of destroying Trump’s number-one re-electable achievement…

…It’s now the transparent, left-wing hope that corona can do what Mueller and Schiff didn’t do.

Plain and simple, brutal as it may sound for you to hear, as strange as it may sound (and as, gosh, you wish it weren’t true), I’m telling you that as far as they are concerned, the Democrat leaders — Pelosi, Schumer, Comey, everybody, Brennan, everybody involved in this hoax to get rid of Trump — are all hoping that this virus can do what Mueller and Schiff failed to do.

In spite of Rush’s warnings, and most tellingly, in spite of the actual data, the shutdowns, lockdowns, and forced masking of Americans continued throughout 2020 and beyond. Even after weaponizing the Wuhan Virus and transforming elections throughout the U.S.—which GREATLY aided the Democrat Party in 2020—the left continued to push their numerous lies on the Wuhan Virus. Led by Joe Biden, time and again the American left lied about the Wuhan Virus, and their countless allies in media aided and abetted them.

The lockdowns never worked, masks never worked, testing never worked, COVID “protocols” in schools never worked, and the vaccine was FAR from what was promised. It is not a stretch to conclude that COVID-19 was “the largest, most sophisticated propaganda operation in history.” The resulting destruction to individual lives, businesses, our economy, our school system, and so on, can hardly be quantified. It was unprecedented destruction, and the Democrat Party led the way.

All of this, and I’ve yet to chronicle the Democrats war on police and policing, and the crime that plagues much of America. I’ve said nothing about the invasion at our southern border, that has gotten so bad that a federal judge recently stated that the Biden administration had “effectively turned the Southwest Border into a meaningless line in the sand and little more than a speedbump for aliens flooding into the country.”

Whatever happened at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, it pales in comparison to what today’s Democrats have done—and continue to do—to the United States. Shame on them! May they never again have power in America.

Why Christianity--and Christians--Should Reject Same-Sex "Marriage" (Rev. Calvin Robinson)

Last month, in a meeting of the General Synod of the Church of England, the Rev. Calvin Robinson gave a clear and powerful response for why Christianity, and thus any faithful Christian, should reject any redefinition of marriage, including, and especially, same-sex "marriage." Some excellent pull-quotes: 

  • We are directly talking about undermining God's plan as He has revealed it to us. We are replacing His authority with our own. 
  • Yes, God is love, but He sets the terms, not us. 
  • The church should absolutely be inclusive. Christ spent time with tax collectors and prostitutes, but it is they who went away changed, not Christ. 
  • The church is open to sinners. Of course it is! That's the purpose of the church. But it should not be to encourage people to continue to sin. 
  • [Christianity] is inherently discriminatory. God is discriminatory. He sets conditions on us entering His heavenly kingdom. It is not a free-for-all. We must turn away from sin--repent--and follow Christ. 
  • [To those church leaders supporting same-sex "marriage"]: Stop teaching about diversity, inclusion, and equality. Get back to teaching about redemption and salvation. [To do otherwise] is spiritual neglect. 
  • [To those church leaders supporting same-sex "marriage"]: We are seeing the most rapid decline of Christianity in this country that we may have ever seen. Do not accelerate it with heresy. You do not have the authority to bless sin. 
  • When I hear the Bishop of London on record saying: "These new prayers will mean Priests can bless same-sex relationships (some of which may be sexual in nature)," I hear the Devil at work! 

This video clip is a condensed version of Rev. Robinson's talk (and contains all of the quotes above):

Tucker Carlson Calls Out the “Professional Christians”

In one of his monologues last week, Tucker Carlson called Merrick Garland “the weakest Attorney General” in American history. Tucker added, “Merrick Garland has presided over the most aggressive attack on civil liberties, in particular, an attack on the practice of traditional Christianity, than any living American has seen.”

Tucker’s comments came on the heels of Garland’s recent testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. During the testimony, GOP Senators Mike Lee and Josh Hawley confronted the Attorney General on the Biden Justice Department’s heavy-handed and disproportionate attacks on American Christians, especially noting the attacks against Christians who protest abortion centers.

The Senators highlighted the FBI’s shocking raid of Mark Houck’s home, where 20 to 30 agents with “full SWAT gear, heavily armored vests, ballistic shields, helmets, [and] battering ram” terrorized Mr. Houck, his wife and their seven children simply because Mr. Houck shoved a pro-abortion extremist who was harassing his 12-year-old son.

Tucker also noted the incident involving Paul Vaughn, a pro-life father of eleven children:

In March of 2021, Paul Vaughn and 10 others were peacefully praying at an abortion clinic in Tennessee. They didn’t damage any property. They hurt no one. More than a year after they dared to do that, to pray, Merrick Garland sent the FBI to terrorize Vaughn and his 11 children at their home…

Paul Vaughn and his co-conspirators now face more than a decade in prison.

After highlighting these gross injustices against American Christians, Tucker makes what I believe is his most important point:

You have to wonder when you see a tape like that, where are so-called Christian leaders? Where’s Russell Moore and all the other breast-beating Christians as that happens, as the U.S. government cracks down on Christianity, on prayer? Silent. 

The “People’s Republic of Canada” has been even more hostile to Christians. Things have gotten so bad for Christians in Canada, that in February of last year Senator Hawley reiterated his call for Canada to be placed on a special watch list of religious liberty violators. Senator Hawley’s statements were mostly due to Canada’s then ongoing treatment of Pastor Artur Pawlowski.

A day after Fox News reported on Senator Hawley’s call, in a piece entitled “Free speech and the Bible on global trial,” The Washington Times reported,

Canada’s recently unanimously passed law, C-4, prevents its citizens from spreading Biblical views on marriage and sexuality. Canadian parents, faith leaders, and citizens who hold traditional views of marriage and sexuality will now face up to 5 years of jail time for providing spiritual guidance to those seeking counseling.

As a horrific assault on civil rights, Canada’s egregious policy directly targets faith and has effectively placed targets on the backs of many of its own citizens.

Likewise, in the same monologue referenced above, Tucker Carlson declares “Canada has now become an atheist, totalitarian state with amazing speed.” Tucker adds,

And in Canada, it’s now a crime to object to sexualized drag shows for children. You’re not allowed to say a word. Late last month, a pastor in Calgary was violently thrown out of an all-ages — in other words, for children — drag queen story hour for daring to object to the sexualization of children. 

And Tucker again asks the important question, “Where are all the professional Christians?” Tucker again names names:

You have to wonder that again. Where’s David French and Beth Moore and Tim Keller and all these people who are defending Christianity as actual Christians are being arrested for being Christians? Hmm. Not a word. 

I’m not sure whether Tucker calling out Russell Moore, David French, Beth Moore, and Tim Keller is completely fair or not. I don’t know everything they’ve had to say on the crucial issues that Tucker points out. But I do know this: As a follower of Jesus, and as an astute observer of our media and culture, I can rarely—if ever—recall those “professional Christians” Tucker named drawing attention to themselves for speaking the truth on what are some of the most important moral issues of our time.

Additionally, as high profile as are those “professional Christians,” and given the relatively large platform with which they are blessed, we can be almost certain that if they were speaking the truth on religious liberty, the evil LGBT agenda, and the like, the godless press in America would take note. “Truth makes the Devil blush,” wrote English historian Thomas Fuller. If you make the Devil blush, he’s most likely going to come after you, and one of his favorite tools is the American media.

Tragically, Russell Moore, David French, Beth Moore, and Tim Keller are far from alone. As I’ve noted multiple times in the past several years, whether “professional Christians,” “Christian celebrities,” pastors and priests, Tucker Carlson, or everyday Christians, for far too long, far too many Christians have sat on the sidelines when it comes to the grave moral issues that demand our attention. Thus, in a matter of just a few short years, we went from a near nation-wide rejection of same-sex “marriage” to a widespread—and now often legally enforced—embrace of it.

We’ve gone from debating what is marriage to debating what is a male a what is a female. And now we are having to debate whether or not those who want to sexually groom children should be allowed to do so, and whether or not this evil should occur in our tax-payer funded libraries and schools!

As I’ve noted before, some things have been settled for all time. This is especially the case on sex and marriage. It’s past time that more Christians realized this, and started living their lives accordingly, and using their voices to say so.

JHU Professor: "The Greatest Perpetrator of Misinformation During the Pandemic Has Been the United States Government."

During the first hearing of House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic--which would not have occurred had Republicans not taken the U.S. House in the 2022 midterms--Johns Hopkins University professor Dr. Marty Makary (rightly) blasted the federal government's reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic: 

A portion of the transcript of Dr. Makary's powerful testimony: 

Misinformation that Covid was spread through surface transmission; that vaccinated immunity was far greater than natural immunity; That masks were effective.

Now we have the definitive Cochrane review. What do you do with that review? Cochrane is the most authoritative evidence body in all of medicine and has been for decades. Do you just ignore it and not talk about it?

That myocarditis was more common after the infection than [after] the vaccine. Not true, it is 4-28 times more common after the vaccine.

That young people benefit from a booster, misinformation. Our two top experts on vaccines quit the FDA in protest over this particular issue, pushing boosters in young, healthy people. The data was never there. That's why the CDC never disclosed hospitalization rates among boosted Americans under age 50.

That vaccine mandates would increase vaccination rates. The George Mason University study shows that it didn't. It did one thing, it created "Never-Vaxxers" who are now not getting the childhood vaccines they need to get.

Over and over again, we've seen something that goes far beyond using your best judgment with the information at hand. We've seen something that is unforgivable, and that is the weaponization of medical research itself. The CDC putting out their own shoddy studies, like their own study on natural immunity looking at one state for two months, when they had data for years on all 50 states. Why did they only report that one sliver of data? Why did the salami slice the giant database? Because it gave them the result they wanted.

The same with the masking studies. The data has now caught up in giant systematic reviews, and public health officials were intellectually dishonest. They lied to the American people.
