Claims Congress freedom Intelwars Muslim Rashida tlaib speech Women

Rep. Rashida Tlaib claims ‘freedom of speech doesn’t exist for Muslim women in Congress’

Far-left Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) declared Thursday to her 1.4 million Twitter followers that “freedom of speech doesn’t exist for Muslim women in Congress,” after her fellow Muslim female colleague Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) faced backlash from her own party after appearing to equate the U.S. and Israel to terrorist organizations earlier in the week.

What are the details?

Tlaib, who along with Omar is a household name after numerous controversial statements and membership in House Democrats’ progressive “squad,” tweeted:

“Freedom of speech doesn’t exist for Muslim women in Congress. The benefit of the doubt doesn’t exist for Muslim women in Congress. House Democratic leadership should be ashamed of its relentless, exclusive tone policing of Congresswomen of color.”

Fox News noted:

Tlaib and Omar were the first Muslim women elected to Congress in 2018 and, along with other members of the progressive Squad, have been more critical of Israel, especially during the recent 11-day conflict with Hamas that left more than 250 dead, the vast majority Palestinians.

On Monday, Omar sparked outrage after telling her own 1.2 million Twitter followers, “We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity. We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban. I asked @SecBlinken where people are supposed to go for justice.”

Omar’s remarks drew sharp condemnation from across the political spectrum, including from at least a dozen fellow House Democrats. The Minnesota representative then clarified her comments while slamming her Democratic colleagues for calling her out.

“It’s shameful for colleagues who call me when they need my support to now put out a statement asking for ‘clarification’ and not just call. The islamophobic tropes in this statement are offensive. The constant harassment & silencing from the signers of this letter is unbearable.”

The same day, Democratic leaders including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D) issued a joint statement saying “there is no moral equivalency between the U.S. and Israel and Hamas and the Taliban,” adding that they “welcome” Omar’s clarification.

The House’s Progressive Caucus issued a statement of their own defending Omar. The message penned by Chairwoman Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) reads:

Rep. Omar is a deeply valued members of the Progressive Caucus. Her voice is critical and necessary, both in the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the House Democratic Caucus as a whole.

We cannot ignore a right-wing media echo chamber that has deliberately and routinely attacked a Black, Muslim woman in Congress, distorting her views and intentions, and resulting in threats against Rep. Omar and her staff. We urge our colleagues not to abet or amplify such divisive and bad-faith tactics. Members of the Democratic Caucus owe it to each other to pause, reflect, and engage directly with each other when misunderstanding arise, and stand together against cynical attempts to divide our caucus.

Blazetv Intelwars left Pat gray Pat gray unleashed TheBlaze Transgender Transgender atheltes Women

Does the Left care about women?

Chelsea Mitchell, a Connecticut high school track athlete, is speaking out against the state’s decision to allow transgender females to compete in women’s sports. Mitchell believes that colleges no longer see her as the fastest female in Connecticut.

“The CIAC allows transgender athletes to compete in girls’ and women’s sports. As a result, two transgender athletes began racing in girls’ track in 2017. In the 2017, 2018, and 2019 seasons alone, these runners took 15 women’s state track championship titles (titles held in 2016 by nine different girls) and more than 85 opportunities to participate in higher-level competitions that belonged to female track athletes,” Mitchell wrote.

World Health Org Study Says Working Too Many Hours a Week Is Killing 700,000+ Every Year

This article was originally published by B.N. Frank at Activist Post. 

There’s an old saying – “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”  According to the WHO – it may make Jack more than dull.  From Newser:

Working Too Many Hours Is Killing 745K a Year

‘Working 55 hours or more per week is a serious health hazard,’ researchers say

(Newser) – Working too many hours in a week is a massive health hazard that kills an estimated 745,000 people worldwide—and the problem is getting worse, according to a new World Health Organization study. The WHO says that compared to a standard working week of 35 to 40 hours, working 55 hours or more in a week is associated with a 35% higher risk of having a stroke and a 17% higher risk of dying from heart disease, the BBC reports. More than 70% of the deaths associated with long working hours were in men middle-aged and older, though researchers say the deaths often occurred later in life than the period of overwork.

“Working 55 hours or more per week is a serious health hazard,” said Maria Neira, director of the WHO’s Department of Environment, Climate Change and Health, per Reuters. “What we want to do with this information is promote more action, more protection of workers.” The problem is most severe in Southeast Asia and the western Pacific region, researchers say. The study found that long hours can be deadly both from the body’s direct reaction to stress and the unhealthy lifestyles, including tobacco use, unhealthy diets, and a lack of sleep and exercise, that people working too many hours tend to adopt. The study did not include data from the pandemic, though WHO officials say evidence suggests the number of hours worked tends to increase around 10% during lockdowns. (Read more overwork stories.)

Barack Obama become ungovernable controlled dissent Donald Trump Force government is slavery Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden Mainstream media Martial Law military order followers Minneapolis Police State propaganda Protests Soldiers Taliban tyranny violation of human rights wake up withdraw your consent Women

“This is Martial Law”—US Soldiers Force Women from Car at Gunpoint for Pumping Gas Past Curfew

This article was originally published by Matt Agorist at The Free Thought Project. 

 On April 11, 2021, just miles from where George Floyd took his last breaths on Earth as they were squeezed from his body by officer Derek Chauvin, Daunte Wright was targeted by police over an alleged expired tag. Because the American police state is a violent behemoth that knows no self-restraint, a few moments into the stop and Wright would be killed at the hands of those who claim to protect him.

The unjust nature of Wright’s death sparked a massive backlash in the form of protests and riots leading to Mayor Jacob Frey of Minneapolis declaring a state of emergency.

With the curfew implemented and hundreds of protesters arrested for simply being outside too late, the unrest tapered off last week. However, videos have surfaced showing some rather shocking scenes unfold as Minneapolis and the surrounding areas turned into an outright militarized police state.

Even folks who were not involved in the protests have been rounded up under what many are saying appears to be martial law. Over the weekend, a video surfaced of the heavy-handed militarized tactics being used by both police and military who were called in to quell the unrest. It is nothing short of shocking.

According to the person who posted the video, several women, not affiliated with the protests, were attempting to gas up their vehicle — apparently after curfew — when heavily armed soldiers surrounded their car. The soldiers then ordered the women from the car with AR-15 rifles pointed at their heads.

As the completely harmless women, one of them in yoga pants, is ordered out of the vehicle, they are then forced to kneel on the ground with their hands on their heads. The scene was akin to a raid on the Taliban in Kabul but happened in Minneapolis, and instead of the Taliban, it was innocent women in yoga pants.

Naturally, the footage has sparked criticism online with many comparing the scene to martial law.

“Whoever ordered this idiocy shld be unceremoniously & summarily removed from office. Arresting ppl at a MN gas station—pointing military grade assault rifles in their faces—is just outrageous. No elected official shld ever get away w this,” one Twitter user wrote.

“When there is widespread civil unrest, a state basically has 2 options: 1 – make a few concessions to public demands, or 2 – use tyrannical force to quell the unrest. And it’s quite obvious the direction our ruling class wants to go as public anger and despair continues to grow,” another tweet read.

Predictably, the debate online devolved into Twitter users blaming Donald Trump or Joe Biden — depending on which side of the political trough they choose to feed. Unfortunately, both of them miss the point as this militarized police state is bipartisan. It was here long before Trump and began ramping up under George W. Bush during antiwar protests and came to a head under Obama during the Ferguson unrest.

There was one difference, however, and some folks pointed out how the mainstream media didn’t even pick this story up at all now that Trump is out of office.

“This is the “return to normalcy” people were wanting. Because last year….whats happening in Minnesota, Portland, and Chicago right now would be on every news station and would be the top topics on Twitter. But now that the orange man is gone….we can talk about Cats again,” wrote one Twitter user.

Though this person is likely pro-Trump, his point holds merit. The national guard ordering women out of their car at gunpoint for pumping gas after curfew is most assuredly a national story — yet we couldn’t find a single mainstream media outlet who covered it.

When you watch the video below, remember as the mainstream media fills the airwaves with divisive propaganda, they are choosing not to show Americans the massive police state being constructed around them.

Crowder: Feminism isn’t actually about empowering women

Steven Crowder told his audience on Wednesday that Minnesota police officer Kim Potter – the female cop identified in the “accidental” shooting death of Daunte Wright – appeared to be a danger to herself and to her partners.

Crowder reviewed police body cam footage of the traffic stop that showed officer Potter making a failed attempt at arresting Daunte Wright. In the video, Wright slipped from Potter’s grip and made it back into the driver’s seat of his vehicle. Potter can be heard on the video shouting she would tase Wright if he did not comply. Tragically, Potter accidentally pulled her gun thinking it was a taser and shot Wright

After reviewing the tape, Crowder concluded that in addition to accidentally shooting Wright, she put herself and her fellow officers in danger multiple times.

Crowder related officer Potter’s actions to the “lie that feminism is about empowering women.” He argued that officer Potter appeared less than capable of detaining a grown man, despite being on the police force for 26-years. “We convince women they add value in ways they don’t. We convince them that they add value in the way men add value,” Crowder said.

Ethnic diversity Intelwars lbgtq Racial diversity San francisco school board volunteer watch White man Women

San Francisco’s school board actually denies gay parent spot on advisory council — because he’s white

The San Francisco Unified School District’s Board of Education just can’t seem to steer clear of national headline-grabbing controversy these days. But its latest move might be worthy of the championship trophy.

What gives now?

At Tuesday’s board meeting, a gay parent named Seth Brenzel was supposed to be appointed to the Parent Advisory Council, KGO-TV reported.

But alas, it was not to be.

Brenzel, as you can see, is white — and that wasn’t flying with the board, which rejected Brenzel over his race, the station said.

The current makeup of the all-women PAC is as follows, according to KGO:

  • Three Latinas
  • Three whites
  • Two blacks
  • One Asian
  • One Pacific Islander

School Board Commissioner Alison Collins strongly advocated that the council — which advises the board on issues that affect students and parents — needed to be more racially diverse, the station said.

“In a district that has so many monolingual families and specifically so many Chinese-speaking families, this is not OK to me,” Collins noted, according to KGO.

About 33% of SFUSD students are Asian, 28% are Latino, 15% are white, and 6% are black, the station said.

Brenzel would have been the only man on the council — and the board argued that adding a white male in particular would tip the balance, making whites the “dominating race” on the PAC, the station added.

“It’s actually about who has a voice in our public schools, and public schools are the cornerstone of our democracy,” Commissioner Matt Alexander said, according to KGO.

What was the council’s reaction to the board’s decision?

The station said PAC members were surprised at the board’s decision, especially since no board members previously questioned their selections.

The council members did attempt to defend their selection of Brenzel at the meeting, KGO noted.

Michelle Jacques-Menegaz, who serves on the PAC, said “the fact that he brings diversity to our group in other ways, as many people brought up last night, I think was one of the factors that we considered,” the station reported.

While Commissioner Mark Sanchez said, “We need qualified people, and we need representation,” KGO reported that he took the matter off the table and let people of color apply after sensing he lacked votes. But Sanchez noted that he hopes Brenzel will apply again, the station said.

“He’s gay, that’s an important voice that we don’t have right now, and he’s a man,” Sanchez told KGO. “There are no males on the committee, and I’m really looking forward to having his name brought back to us in a month or two and voting on it with a slate of other folks.”

PAC members told the station that they’ve heard from a number of potential candidates interested in joining the council following Tuesday’s meeting, the station noted.

Intelwars national institutes of health NIH Pregnant lactating people Wokeness Women

NIH refuses to say ‘women,’ refers to them as ‘pregnant and lactating people’

Some may remember the good old days when political correctness and woke ideology hadn’t infected America’s scientific institutions. Well, those days are long gone.

For proof, one need look no further than to a recent news release from the National Institutes of Health in which the organization repeatedly opted not to utter the word “women,” instead choosing to describe them as “pregnant and lactating people.”

In the news release, scientists lamented the fact that thus far pregnant women have not been included in coronavirus vaccine trials and that due to their exclusion, many pregnant women now face the difficult decision of whether or not to receive the vaccine without the benefit of scientific evidence regarding its safety.

In response, the institute is calling for greater inclusion for pregnant women in vaccine research. The topic is an important one and worthy of discussion, but sadly it will undoubtedly be overshadowed by the institute’s woke choice to refer to such individuals as “pregnant and lactating people.”

After the NIH tweeted the release using the same phrasing, conservative commentator Ben Shapiro jumped in to clarify, writing, “You mean ‘women.'”

The NIH uses the nonbinary phrase several times throughout the news release and at one point even refers to women who are not carrying a child in their wombs as “non-pregnant adults.”

Amazingly, the release only uses the word “women” twice, both times in its mention of the 2016 establishment of the “Task Force on Research Specific to Pregnant Women and Lactating Women.” It serves as an example of how fast things may be changing in the scientific community, as now, only four years later, the institute feels the need to edit every mention of the word.

Some commenters on Twitter made sure to educate Shapiro on why the NIH opted to use the word “people” rather than “women” by pointing out that while biological males cannot become pregnant, some biological females who identify as transgender men can. Those individuals, of course, would reject being labeled as women.

Furthermore, though rare, it appears to be theoretically possible for men to lactate — if they pump their bodies full of hormone-boosting pharmaceuticals, that is.

Constitution Constitutional Convention Founding Principles Gender Intelwars Ratification Debates rights Voting Women

Despite What They Tell You: The Constitution Never Discriminated Against Women

One way some writers try to discredit the Constitution is to assert that the document’s original meaning discriminated against women.

Thus, a 2011 Time Magazine cover story claimed that “The [Constitution’s] framers gave us the idea that . . . women were not allowed to vote.” An October 13, 2020 article in The Hill added, “The very fact that [Amy Coney] Barrett accepted the president’s nomination means that there are limits to her originalism. She clearly doesn’t believe that being a woman disqualifies her from sitting on the Supreme Court.”

The author of the Time Magazine article formerly headed the National Constitution Center. The author of The Hill piece sports a “Ph.D. in Political Science from Indiana University, with a focus on comparative constitutional law.” Both of them should have known better.

It has been over a century since the state legislatures ratified the 19th amendment, which guaranteed female suffrage nationwide.  The amendment is worded in a way that readily provokes two questions: (1) Taken in context with previous amendments, it implies that women already voted in some states; is this true? and (2) why didn’t the amendment add the right to hold federal office?

The answers are: (1) Yes, before the amendment was ratified, women voted in many states. Where they were blocked from the polls, it resulted from a decision by state authorities. It was not dictated by the Constitution. (2) The original Constitution permitted women to hold federal office, as demonstrated by the congressional service, before the 19th amendment, of Rep. Jeanette Rankin of Montana.

In fact, the Constitution never barred women either from voting or from holding federal office. On the contrary, the document’s framers carefully avoided sex-based tests for voting or officeholding, just as they avoided tests based on race, property, or religion. Here’s the background:

When the Constitutional Convention met in 1787, most state constitutions contemplated that voters and officeholders would be male. Some expressly limited voting to “male inhabitants” (New York, Massachusetts) or “freemen” (New Hampshire, Pennsylvania). The Virginia constitution provided for election to the state Senate of “the man who shall have the greatest number of votes in the whole district,” and the New York constitution described the state legislature as consisting of “two separate and distinct bodies of men.”

Although at the time people often employed the word “man” generically to signify a human being, these documents probably meant “man” in the narrower, male sense. For example, the Virginia constitution’s use of “man” was interpreted in practice to limit voting and office-holding to males.

But not all state charters were written that way. The New Jersey constitution was gender-neutral. It nowhere contained the words “man” or “men.” Rather, it granted both suffrage and the right to hold office to “all inhabitants” who met certain property requirements. It uniformly referred to officeholders as “persons.”

The New Jersey constitution did use the pronoun “he” and its variants. But of course before the PC language-manipulation project of recent years, standard English used “he” and its variants to designate either men or women. Women had their own pronouns; men had to share theirs.

Contemporaries fully recognized the New Jersey constitution as gender-neutral. That’s why women could vote in that state. They voted in such numbers that New Jersey political operatives routinely included appeals for the female vote.

The spirit of the time favored female political involvement in other states as well. Massachusetts saw sporadic female voting. During the public debates over the Constitution, women participated actively on both sides of the issue. In addition to voting for ratification convention delegates in New Jersey and perhaps elsewhere, women organized public events, mostly in favor of the Constitution. Mercy Otis Warren of Massachusetts (later a distinguished historian) contributed essays against the Constitution. And both sides apparently made written appeals to women for political support.

The delegates to the 1787 Constitution Convention were consciously writing for the ages. They surely realized that female suffrage could spread beyond New Jersey. Politics being what it is, the power to vote would encourage women to run for political office as well. The framers therefore made the document agnostic on the subject of gender. Any restrictions based on sex would have to be imposed at the state level, because the Constitution did not impose them.

The records of the convention show that gender neutrality was the dominant assumption from its early days. The Virginia Plan, the outline used to kick off the debates, was gender neutral. Judge William Paterson’s competing New Jersey Plan followed his state’s basic law by referring to participants in public affairs as “citizens,” “inhabitants” and “persons.” Only once in the New Jersey Plan did “man” or “men” appear, and that was in the phrase “body of men” to describe a presumably armed band of men defying federal law.

From the beginning, moreover, the framers accepted that representation in the lower house of the national legislature would be based on state population or wealth, rather than according to the number of males, as in states such as New Hampshire and New York.

Later in the convention, the framers did consider some gender qualifications—only to reject them. For example, in late July and early August, 1787, a Committee of Detail fashioned the convention’s resolutions into a first draft of the Constitution. Committee member James Wilson suggested that electors be limited to “freemen,” as in his own state of Pennsylvania. And his colleague Edmund Randolph’s initial outline listed “manhood” as a possible suffrage qualification.

But the committee rejected both proposals as “not justified by the [convention’s] resolutions.” When the committee draft emerged, it avoided the singular word “man” and referred to the president as a “person.”

In the interim, though, some gender specificity crept in. The Committee of Detail draft described the national legislature as consisting of “two separate and distinct Bodies of Men.” It also granted the president the title of “His Excellency,” with no provision for any “Her Excellency.” And later in the convention Pierce Butler of South Carolina proposed, and the convention adopted, a clause with a one-time appearance of the phrase “He or She.” Of course, such a phrase might suggest that where the Constitution employed only “he” (as everywhere else in the document) it meant only males.

Later in the convention, though, the delegates dropped “He or She,” thereby clarifying that “he” encompassed persons of the both sexes. The convention also delegated final drafting to a Committee of Style. Committee member Gouverneur Morris did most of the actual writing. With respect to gender, he followed the New Jersey model. The final version of the Constitution made the following changes from earlier drafts and resolutions:

  • It omitted the phrase “Bodies of Men” in describing the national legislature.
  • It avoided all use of “man” and “men.”
  • It employed only gender-neutral terms such as “person,” “citizen,” “inhabitant,” and titles such as “officer” and “elector.”
  • It deleted the power of Congress to override state laws on voter qualifications, thereby fully empowering states to enfranchise women for federal as well as state elections.

This gender neutrality was not lost on the wider public. It may have been one reason more women worked for the Constitution than against it. But gender neutrality also came under fire from the Constitution’s opponents. One essayist writing under the pseudonym “Cato” objected to the document’s allocation of Representatives by “inhabitants” rather than by male freemen. Another writer, satirizing opposition arguments, criticized the Constitution because it did not limit the president to a person “of the male gender.” The satirist pointed out that “Without [such an] exclusion” Americans might “come to have an old woman at the head of our affairs.” Of course, those sexist arguments did not prevail.

Sex-based restrictions were left to the states, and over time states gradually abolished them?a development the Constitution’s gender neutrality made possible.

A version of this article appeared in the December 27, 2020 issue of the Epoch Times.

College Football female Intelwars Kicker Sarah fuller Vanderbilt watch Women

Sarah Fuller, brand new to college football team, blasts players at halftime. After one kickoff, she’s named SEC special teams player of the week.

One story utterly dominated the sports world Saturday: A goalie for the Vanderbilt University women’s soccer team joined the school’s football team as its placekicker after specialists on the squad were out with COVID-19.

Factually speaking, Sarah Fuller made history when she stepped on the field against Missouri to start the second half, becoming the first woman to play in a Power 5 football game. The Southeastern Conference called her kickoff “perfectly-executed” noting that it “sailed 30 yards and was downed at the Missouri 35-yard line.”


Vanderbilt’s Sarah Fuller Becomes First Woman To Play In Power Five Football Game

youtu.be

But everything else surrounding her stint with the football team, according to a number of sports commentators, seemed just a tad over the top.

What are the details?

For starters, Fuller actually blasted her brand-new teammates in a halftime speech. Now, it’s not uncommon for players to get vocal with each other in the locker room when the chips are down — but a player who just joined the team? And given that kickers’ workloads are quite light, typically they’re the last players who will rip into teammates covered in mud, blood, and sweat.

But Fuller told reporters that’s just what she did.

“I just went in there, and I said exactly what I was thinking,” Fuller recalled, according to ESPN’s Courtney Cronin. “I was like, ‘We need to be cheering each other on. This is how you win games. This is how you get better is by calling each other out for stuff, and I’m going to call you guys out. We need to be supporting one another.'”

Fuller added that she “was a little pissed off at how quiet everybody was on the sideline. We made a first down, and I was the only one cheering, and I was like, ‘What the heck? What’s going on?’ And I tried to get them pumped up.”

And believe it or not, Fuller said after her speech she “had coaches come up to me and say, ‘I’ve been wanting to say that for awhile now.'” Vanderbilt lost the game 41-0.

Oh, and after her single kickoff, Fuller was named the SEC’s co-special teams player of the week.

Fuller’s effort reportedly was compared to Jackie Robinson

And a number of folks just couldn’t get enough of the growing legend surrounding Fuller.

Uber-woke NBA superstar LeBron James praised Fuller on Instagram. ESPN’s Linda Cohn gushed on camera, calling Fuller a “rock star” during a recent interview.

Alex Scarborough, also with ESPN, penned a feature article totaling more than 2,000 words on Fuller.

Nashville-based radio commentator Chad Withrow said that a fellow local host likened Fuller’s efforts to Jackie Robinson breaking baseball’s color barrier.

“I’m thinking, ‘Are you kidding me?'” Withrow told Outkick’s Clay Travis on Monday. “I mean the insanity of some of this drives me crazy.”


Broadcasters Compare Sarah Fuller To Greats Like JACKIE ROBINSON- Clay And Chad Are NOT Ok With It!

youtu.be

Travis — a Vanderbilt alum — has been following the story closely and suggested that the whole thing may have been a publicity stunt pulled off by head coach Derek Mason to save his job. (If so, it apparently didn’t work; Mason was fired the day after Fuller’s game, having tallied an 0-8 season.)

Anything else?

Fuller is well aware of the negativity pointed at her.

“I’ve been trying not to look at the comments, but it’s hard not to see them sometimes when they’re talking crap about you, and I’m just like, at this point, what are you doing?” she told ESPN in a separate story. “I am a D-I soccer player, I go to Vanderbilt University, I am going to get my degree from here, I’ve done amazing things I’ve set out to do, and so they can talk crap all they want. This is something I believe I’ve earned, and I was at the right place at the right time, so yeah, I’ll take on the hate.”

Fuller also said she wants to keep playing for Vanderbilt’s football team, even if other specialists return to the squad.

Cal cunningham affair Intelwars More Refuses Women

Cal Cunningham refuses to answer — several times — whether he has had more affairs

North Carolina U.S. Senate candidate Cal Cunningham (D) held his first press conference Friday since admitting to sexting a woman other than his wife, but refused several times to answer whether he had been involved with additional women outside of his marriage.

What are the details?

Cunningham — a married father of two who is running to unseat incumbent Sen. Thom Tillis (R) — admitted a week ago to engaging in sexually-charged text messages with a California public relations strategist named Arlene Guzman Todd.

As TheBlaze previously reported, Guzman Todd “is married to Jeremy Todd, who like Cunningham is a military veteran, reportedly served 15 years in the Army.”

Guzman Todd later told the Associated Press that her affair with Cunningham was also physical.

While Cunningham has remained mum on the topic for several days, National File, the outlet that broke the news on his sexting scandal, published claims from a former Cunningham supporter and attorney that the Democrat had been carrying on an affair with another woman since 2012 who was “devastated” after learning of his relationship with Guzman Todd.

During the press conference on Friday, Cunningham was asked repeatedly by reporters whether or not there are more women who might come forward.

Local outlet WNCN-TV counted four times that the Senate candidate refused to answer the question, dodging by saying that he had already taken responsibility for the hurt he has caused, that “people are tired of hearing about personal issues,” and that Tillis was trying to redirect the conversation away from the Republican’s own record.


Cal Cunningham doesn’t answer specific questions about other potential affairs

www.youtube.com

Politico’s Burgess Everett reported: “‘I’ve said what I’m going to say about it,’ Cunningham concludes when asked if there are more women and if this might hang over his head.”

Early Friday morning, Tillis tweeted out a new political ad attacking Cunningham over the affair allegations, writing, “Chuck Schumer has spent over $80 million trying to paint one picture of Cal Cunningham, but North Carolinians are now realizing it was all one big lie and that Cunningham’s candidacy is riddled with hypocrisy.”

Anything else?

The U.S. Army Reserve said Wednesday that it is now investigating Cunningham, but did not provide any details.

According to The Washington Examiner:

Tillis previously stated that Cunningham’s actions warranted military disciplinary action, and Republicans went after Cunningham, saying that he may have violated Article 134 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice under the section of adultery, citing his rank as a lieutenant colonel in the Army Reserve and his mistress’s status as the wife of an Army combat veteran.

COVID-19 Intelwars lockdown pregnant Stillbirth surge Women

Studies show surge in stillbirths amid lockdowns. Researchers fear pregnant women are avoiding prenatal care.

An array of studies show that stillbirths have surged globally following lockdowns imposed in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19, and researchers speculate the link could be from pregnant women avoiding hospitals and clinics out of fear of catching the virus while seeking prenatal care.

What are the details?

Nature cited a slew of studies this week in reporting that stillbirth rates have risen “dramatically” since the pandemic began, and that “emerging data link disrupted pregnancy services to [the] increase in stillbirths.”

Jane Warland, a specialist in midwifery at the University of South Australis in Adelaide told the outlet, “What we’ve done is cause an unintended spike in stillbirth while trying to protect [pregnant women] from COVID-19.”

Stillbirths were reported to have risen 50% in the largest study conducted, which followed 20,000 women in Nepal. Nature noted, “The sharpest rise was observed during the first four weeks of the lockdown, under which people were allowed to leave their homes only to buy food and receive essential care.”

Studies from India, the United Kingdom, and Scotland also showed the same disturbing trend.

Perinatal epidemiologist Ashish K.C. at Uppsala University in Sweden, who conducted the Nepal study, also blamed lockdowns on the high stillbirth rates rather than coronavirus infections. K.C. pointed to the fact that many pregnant women studied had appointments canceled due to restrictions, were unable to use public transportation due to shutdowns, and said others likely avoided in-person clinic visits out of fear of contracting COVID-19.

Data indicates those fears have justification, too. CBS News reported that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a study on COVID-19 and pregnancy this week that shows pregnant women infected with the coronavirus were 25% more likely to have preterm deliveries.

A separate report from the CDC earlier this year noted that “pregnancy was associated with hospitalization and increased risk for intensive care unit admission, and receipt of mechanical ventilation, but not with death.”

The Daily Mail pointed out:

In May, a poll found that nearly half of pregnant women were afraid to be in public and risk exposing themselves – and their unborn babies to coronavirus.

With non-essential medical appointments discouraged, many prenatal visits moved online.

It was an important stop-gap, but ran the risk of missed signs of symptoms that could imperil a pregnancy, such as an irregular fetal heartbeat, or preeclampsia, a form of pregnancy-related high blood pressure that can raise risks of stillbirth.

cervical cancer CNN Intelwars lbgtq political correctness Transgender Woke Women

‘Individuals with a cervix’: CNN story on cervical cancer screening avoids using the word ‘women’ — and observers have a field day

A
CNN story on cervical cancer screening begins with this sentence: “Individuals with a cervix are now recommended to start cervical cancers screening at 25 and continue through age 65, with the primary human papillomavirus (HPV) testing every five years as the preferred method of testing, according to a new guideline released Thursday by the American Cancer Society.”

Also a word search revealed that the Thursday story doesn’t refer to “women” or “woman” a single time.

What was the reaction?

As you might imagine, the phrase “individuals with a cervix” has been getting pretty much all of the attention in the comments of a
tweet of the story, with retweets and comments far outpacing likes as of Friday morning.

One Twitter user defended the “individuals with a cervix” phrase,
saying “all of the ppl replying ‘don’t you just mean women!’ conveniently forget 1. trans ppl exist and 2. chromosomal abnormalities often result in ppl who aren’t biologically female having a cervix (and those chromosomal abnormalities aren’t as rare as one might think).”

Another user
commented, “An accurate headline my OBGYN would agree with. Bc she gives pap smears to lots of people who aren’t women; I was there last week. And yes! Lots of women have cervixes too. But as a doctor, she knows that having/lacking a certain body part doesn’t make someone a woman or a man.”

And a user even argued that using the word “women” instead “excludes women without a cervix and men with a cervix.”

However, it seemed most commenters found the phrase “individuals with a cervix” nothing more than dog whistle for political correctness and woke culture:

Others were equally dumbfounded and put off by the phrase:

  • “Boys have a penis, girls have a vagina. You’re welcome,” one user noted.
  • “This is beyond crazy!!! It’s not an implication…we were born with those parts…so the definition of a woman has changed? It’s now a forbidden word?” another user asked.
  • “My humble and antiquated opinion…Anyone can act and be exactly as they wish and should have total freedom to do that within the norms of society,” another user noted. “But to impose the feelings of a very small minority over the needs of a huge majority seems upside down to me.”
  • “Stop erasing women and pretending it’s progressive,” another user stated.

But this take may have won the day:

Coronavirus COVID-19 Frederica Wilson Gender Intelwars Women

Florida Democrat says coronavirus pandemic is a ‘gendered’ crisis that disproportionately impacts women

Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson of Florida said Tuesday that the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed tens of thousands of people worldwide and decimated the U.S. economy, is actually a “gendered crisis” that impacts women more than men.

“In so many ways, the #COVID19 pandemic is a gendered crisis. We’re disproportionately on the frontlines as healthcare workers, food service workers, grocery.” Wilson tweeted.

Wilson’s comments are similar to those made by New York Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul in an op-ed in The Hill, co-written by Lauren Leader. They wrote:

76 percent of the health care workforce is female. A majority of the nurses, nurse practitioners, health aides and even a majority of doctors under the age of 45 are female. These everyday heroes are working tireless hours to save lives, while at the same time trying to protect their own health and the well-being of their families.

It’s not just women in health care who are bearing the brunt of this crisis. Think about this: women comprise the majority in most of the economic sectors hit hardest economically by the shut down of our economy. 40 percent of mothers in the U.S. are the primary breadwinners. They are the majority of service workers, two-thirds of America’s minimum wage workers, and they are more likely to be waitresses, cooks, hotel housekeepers now out of work.

Adding to the misery, 39 percent of small business owners are women — many living on the margins, now unsure whether they will even survive.

Still, the impact of the virus is clearly widespread and neither gender is getting a pass from the consequences. And notable in the above statistics is the fact that a majority of doctors over 45 are male, men are the primary breadwinners in most households, and most small business owners are men.

Additionally, current data shows that men are significantly more likely to die of COVID-19 than women. Dr. Deborah Birx, a response coordinator on the White House coronavirus task force, said the mortality rate in Italy is about twice as high among men as it is among women.

In short, everyone is suffering, and it takes a bit of statistical framing to portray the pandemic as “gendered.”

2020 democratic primary 2020 democratic race 2020 presidential election Bernie Sanders Elizabeth Warren girls Intelwars Joe Biden watch White men Women

Elizabeth Warren chokes up after question about ‘two white men’ now left in race: ‘All those little girls … are going to have to wait four more years’

When far-left U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) spoke to the media outside her Cambridge, Massachusetts, home Thursday about her decision to end her presidential campaign, a reporter asked about another kind of race.

“I wonder what your message would be to the women and girls who feel like, ‘We’re left with two white men to decide between’?” the reporter inquired, presumably in reference to the leading Democratic candidates, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and former Vice President Joe Biden.

“I know,” Warren responded before getting a bit choked up. “One of the hardest parts of this is all those pinky promises, and all those little girls who are gonna have to wait four more years. That’s gonna be hard.”

Warren had been making “pinky promises” to young girls during her campaign “so that they’ll remember that running for president is what girls do.”

Anything else?

Warren, a front-runner for the Democratic nomination a few months ago, drifted into the pack once primary season began.

Disappointing vote totals in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina gave way to Warren’s chance to rebound on Super Tuesday. But she failed to win any of the 14 states up for grabs, including her home state of Massachusetts, where she took third place. In addition, Warren’s total pledged delegate count sat at 65 as of Thursday morning, well behind Biden’s 596 and Sanders’ 531. She then reportedly flew home to reassess her campaign with staff.

According to Mic, the Biden and Sanders campaigns reportedly have been asking Warren for her endorsement, but she noted Thursday that such a decision will have to wait.

“I need some space around this, and I want to take a little time to think a little more,” she said.

editorial Gender Intelwars Left-wing college students Massachusetts Newspaper Nonbinary Transgender Wellesley College Women

Campus newspaper for prestigious all-women college tells school to stop calling students ‘women’

A recent staff editorial for The Wellesley News, the student newspaper for Wellesley College, calls for the prestigious all-women school to edit its policies and language in deference to transgender and nonbinary individuals — most notably to stop calling students “women.”

What are the details?

The editorial takes umbrage at the “never-ending reminders” on campus that Wellesley is for “Women Who Will,” as well as the “attitudes of students, staff, and faculty members on campus who continue to refer to Wellesley ‘sisters’ and use she/her pronouns without consideration for who is in the room. These current practices and attitudes perpetuate the ongoing exclusion and ignorance of transgender and nonbinary identities.”

In addition, the editorial calls attention to Wellesley’s policy of excluding transgender male students from admission and only allowing applicants who identify as women — whether male or female assigned at birth — or who were identified as female at birth who now identify as nonbinary. “Those who are assigned male at birth and identify as nonbinary or identify as cis males are not eligible for admission,” the editorial adds.

More from the paper:

On the fifth anniversary of Wellesley introducing its new gender policy, The Wellesley News calls for the College to reject its complacent attitude and towards the neglect of the transgender and nonbinary community. To do so, we ask that the College administration revise its policy surrounding the admittance of transgender male students and usher in a more inclusive language standard for official communications. Additionally, we ask students to reflect these changes in their everyday lives in order to foster a more kind, empathetic environment.

That ‘women’ word

The editorial also stresses in order to complete a “cognizant rejection of the gender binary,” a few other things are in order, such as doing away with that “women” word. It notes a few ideas adapted from the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion web page of another all-women school, Mount Holyoke College, which also includes transgender and nonbinary students:

  • “When discussing the student body, say ‘Wellesley students’ rather than ‘Wellesley women.'”
  • “Avoid making statements like ‘We’re all women here…'”
  • “Use gender-neutral language whenever possible in syllabi and other general written communication.”

“When we reexamine our assumptions surrounding gender through small shifts like language, we become more tolerant of those who deviate from the gender spectrum,” the editorial concludes. “And, most importantly, we cannot stay silent as our nonbinary and transgender siblings are stripped of their humanity by being excluded from something as crucial as language.”

2nd Amend. Church Cincinnati concealed carry gun rights guns Intelwars Ohio Self-Defense watch Women

Church hosts what may be one of the largest women-only concealed carry classes in state. Students say they’re tired of being afraid.

Kai Brown is a 35-year-old single mom with two small children who wants to protect her family, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.

So despite her fear of guns, Brown attended what may have been the largest women-only concealed carry certification classes in Ohio earlier this month, the paper said.

“It’s my right to carry … so I want to be able to,” she noted to the Enquirer. “It’s wonderful to be surrounded by many different women from many different walks of life. And we’re all, you know, here to protect ourselves.”

The class took place in the basement of New Prospect Baptist Church, which holds one of the largest black congregations in Cincinnati, the paper noted.

But two Saturdays ago, it was home to 179 women firing .22-caliber handguns, the Enquirer said.

The paper added that students repeatedly said they were tired of being afraid — of guns, of being home alone, of walking in some neighborhoods.

For Brown, it appeared to be a struggle to just hear gunshots much less pulling the trigger herself — but the paper said her instructors were kind, encouraging, and helpful.

Finally, she took a deep breath — and fired.

“It’s evident that that fear is still there,” Brown told the Enquirer, adding that “you have to be prepared” due to the times we’re living in.

What’s the background?

The church’s pastor, the Rev. Damon Lynch III, along with Cincinnati City Councilman Jeff Pastor — a Republican who appeared at the class with a T-shirt reading “All gun control is racist” — organized the class, the paper said.

Image source: Cincinnati Enquirer video screenshot

Here’s a clip of Jeff Pastor speaking to the class:

And after it was announced in early January, the CCW class sold out within a week, the Enquirer said.

More from the paper:

Two hundred women signed up. Despite an early morning snowfall that made driving treacherous, 179 women turned out for the class, all with varying comfort levels with guns. Some had never touched one. Others owned a gun, but wanted the license needed to carry it with them. Some came because their moms or sisters or friends suggested it.

The class was taught by certified CCW licensing firm Arm the Populace. It was an intense, nine-hour class, complete with a built-just-for-the class shooting range in an empty storage area above the church’s community center.

Women paid $25 each to cover the cost of the space, cheaper than the typical $65 class fee.

Arm the Populace, a Cincinnati-based company that offers firearms and personal defense training, donated its time. It billed the class as the largest CCW class of all women ever in Ohio.

A spokesman for the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, which keeps CCW records, said the office does not track class size, but from his experience, 179 women in a class could be the largest. The office does not keep CCW permit statistics by race.

The numbers

The Enquirer pointed to a 2017 Pew report on “America’s complex relationship with guns” that found gun ownership varies quite a bit when race and gender is taken into account: About 39% of men said they own a gun as opposed to 22% of women, and while 36% of whites said they’re gun owners, only about 25% of blacks and 15% of Hispanics said they own guns.

In addition, nearly half of the white men said they own a gun compared to about a quarter of white women and nonwhite men — and 16% of nonwhite women, the paper added, citing the report.

But at the church CCW class, 169 of the 179 attendees were black, the Enquirer said.


Image source: Cincinnati Enquirer video screenshot

Douglas Cooper, Arm the Populace’s founder and chief instructor, started the class by saying that “the Second Amendment is for everyone,” the paper noted.

Rev. Lynch agreed.

“I’m not a gun lover; I don’t own any guns, but people have Second Amendment rights to own a gun,” he told the Enquirer. “In the African American community, the conversation is usually about buying guns back. But if people are lawfully trained and learn how to be responsible, they will probably never use one. It sets them on a different course. As opposed to a person who gets a gun and thinks, ‘I have to go shoot.'”

Which, Lynch added to the paper, is a “good thing.”

affects men attack rate Children Coronavirus COVID-19 death toll Demographics Emergency Preparedness Epidemic evolve experts Gabriel Leung Headline News illness Infections Intelwars Mutation pandemic political threat sars symptoms Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus Transmission Virus Women

The Majority Of Coronavirus Victims Are Men, And The Virus Is Hitting Adults Far Harder Than It Is Hitting Children

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Most Important News. 

This coronavirus outbreak just keeps getting weirder. With each passing day, the number of confirmed cases and the number of deaths continue to rise, but not all demographic groups are being affected equally. That seems very odd, but it may also give researchers important clues about how to fight this very deadly virus.

On Tuesday, global health officials finally gave this mysterious new coronavirus an official name. From now on they will be calling it “COVID-19”, but I doubt that moniker will really catch on with the general public. In any event, what everybody can agree on is the fact that this disease has the potential to rapidly spread all over the planet, and let us hope that the extreme measures that are being taken to prevent it from getting out of control will be enough.

One of the things that we have just learned about this virus is that it does not seem to affect men and women equally.

According to two different studies, it appears that men are significantly more likely to get infected than women are…

More men than women seem to contract coronavirus, several recent studies of patients at the heart of the outbreak suggest.

Among the Wuhan University hospital patients documented in one study, 54 percent were men. Another earlier study of hospitalized patients was made up of 68 percent men, Business Insider reported.

Scientists do not currently understand exactly why this is happening.

But researchers have pointed out that there was a similar pattern during the SARS outbreak

The 2003 outbreak of SARS struck more women among younger adults (20-54), but was more prevalent among men in older ages (55 and up).

When University of Iowa researchers exposed male and female mice to the virus, the males were more likely to contract SARS.

Could there be something about male physiology that makes us more vulnerable to a coronavirus outbreak?

This is something that scientists should investigate further.

Another thing about COVID-19 that seems quite strange is the fact that children seem to be a lot less vulnerable to the disease. The following comes from CNBC

The new coronavirus that has already killed more people than the 2003 SARS epidemic appears to be sparing one population group: kids.

Of the more than 43,100 people it’s infected since Dec. 31, World Health Organization officials say the majority are over 40 years old and it’s hitting those with underlying health conditions and the elderly particularly hard.

Some researchers are theorizing that a lot of kids are actually getting infected but that their stronger immune systems are preventing severe symptoms from manifesting

Prep For Cold & Flu Season: How To Boost Your Immune System Naturally

The apparent lack of children among confirmed coronavirus cases could also be because they are getting infected but developing more mild symptoms and aren’t being reported to local authorities, according to Marc Lipsitch, a professor of epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health. World health officials say they are working to improve surveillance of the disease and expect more mild cases to be reported. It could be a while before we have a clear picture on cases, Lipsitch said.

With any disease, those that have weaker or compromised immune systems are always going to be more vulnerable.

And if this outbreak starts to spiral out of control all over the globe, the number of victims could potentially be absolutely staggering.

In fact, Hong Kong epidemiologist Gabriel Leung is warning that 60 to 80 percent of the entire global population could potentially end up catching this virus if urgent action is not taken…

Prof Gabriel Leung, the chair of public health medicine at Hong Kong University, said the overriding question was to figure out the size and shape of the iceberg. Most experts thought that each person infected would go on to transmit the virus to about 2.5 other people. That gave an “attack rate” of 60-80%.

“Sixty percent of the world’s population is an awfully big number,” Leung told the Guardian in London, en route to an expert meeting at the WHO in Geneva on Tuesday.

The official death rate is still fairly low, but if billions of people end up catching this bug it could result in tens of millions of deaths

With the global population currently at more than 7 billion (7,577,130,400), that means that the virus has the potential to infect more than 4 billion (4,546,278,240) if Professor Leung is correct and its spread continues to accelerate.

And if one percent of those people die, that means there will be more than 45 million deaths.

A death toll of that magnitude would put this crisis on par with the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918.

Once again, I want to stress that there is absolutely no guarantee that such a scenario will actually unfold. The SARS outbreak in 2003 was eventually brought under control, and my hope is that this outbreak will eventually be brought under control as well.

But even if this outbreak ends tomorrow, life is not going to go back to normal. In fact, the truth is that our problems are just getting started.

As far as COVID-19 is concerned, we would be in far better shape if the Chinese had locked down the entire city of Wuhan much earlier. By waiting as long as they did, it allowed five million potential carriers to leave Wuhan for other areas of China…

EXPERTS fear it is too late to stop the deadly spread of coronavirus as FIVE MILLION people left the outbreak epicentre before it was even put on lockdown.

Millions continued to pour out of Wuhan – now dubbed zombieland – long after the first reports about a deadly new virus broke.

Now there are confirmed cases in every single province of China, and we will wait to see if this virus ultimately spreads all over the globe.

Thankfully, world health officials are taking this threat very seriously. On Tuesday, the head of the WHO warned that “a virus is more powerful in creating political, economic and social upheaval than any terrorist attack”

WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told reporters in Geneva the vaccine lag meant “we have to do everything today using available weapons” and said the epidemic posed a “very grave threat”.

“To be honest, a virus is more powerful in creating political, economic and social upheaval than any terrorist attack,” Dr Ghebreyesus said.

And he is right.

This virus has the potential to absolutely turn the entire planet upside down.

I am still hoping that does not happen, but I am also encouraging all of my readers to get prepared for the worst.
