San Fran Nan goes full-on SJW. – San Fran Nan, under deep pressure from OAC and her gang of lunatic leftists, issued a new set of House rules on Saturday that in part will eliminate the use of proper pronouns that members can use to identify one another. In a sop to the transgender lobby, proper English language pronouns like “he” and “she” will be replaced with improper pronouns like “xe” and “they”.
No, I’m not making this up. From a story at Axios:
The U.S. House of Representatives is poised to rewrite its rules — swapping out male and female references like “he” and “she” for gender-neutral terms — in a diversity and inclusion push by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats that’s drawing scorn from Republicans.
Why it matters: The proposal comes as transgender and non-binary candidates are being elected around the country, progressives are gaining influence in the Democratic politics and U.S. schools and companies are adjusting policies and language to reflect society’s changing views on sexuality and gender identification.
- The proposed changes were announced Friday ahead of two pivotal runoffs in Georgia on Jan. 5 to decide which party controls the Senate — and could stoke turnout among its supporters or opponents.
- Members are expected to consider the package next week.
In a story at The Hill, House Rules Chair Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) is quoted as saying that “This proposal also shines a light on those struggling to get ahead in America today and ensures we remain focused on the most pressing issues facing our nation.” Yes, friends, it is now the official policy of the Democrat Party that pronouns are among the “most pressing issues facing our nation.”
Not Section 230; not getting our men and women out of myriad wars in foreign hell-holes; not a balloning debt or a fading economy or reining in out-of-control governors; the Democrat Party is focused on PRONOUNS.
Just so y’all know, my preferred pronouns are “Bubba” and “Tex.” Please be sure that you use them properly, as in “Bubba’s fixin’ to go fix that leaky sprinkler system,” or “Tex ate them enchiladas like a hog eats slop.”
Fauci continues boiling the American frog. – The little menace to society was at it again on Saturday, moving the goal posts of Bill Gates’s globalist Great Reset down the field even further. This time, Fauci, in is own inimicable way, not so subtly suggests that it would be perfectly reasonable for the government to start issuing “COVID-19 vaccine passports” that would limit travel, school and attending public gathering to only those who have taken the shots, a step I had warned you about a week ago.
Gee, what a surprise.
From a story at the Daily Caller:
In an interview with Newsweek, Dr. Anthony Fauci floated the possibility that the coronavirus vaccine would be made mandatory for things like school and travel.
Dr. Fauci, the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) explained that there could be a “possibility of introducing COVID-19 vaccine passports,” as well as making the vaccine mandatory at the local level, Newsweek reported.
When asked if there was the possibility that the vaccine could be mandatory for school Fauci explained, “That is possible but that’s something that’s mandated at the state level and city level. A citywide school system might require it in some cities but not other cities. And that’s what I mean by things not being done centrally but locally.”
As always, Fauci carefully couches his fascist ambitions as mere possibilities and as mandates that would have to be placed on the population by others. But the reality is that his role in the steadily-advancing assault on individual freedoms has been that of the “expert” stalking horse, the media darling who consistently awards his seal of approval for these anti-constitutional actions in advance so that the tyrant governors and mayors can claim their brutish treatment of their citizens is supported by “science.”
Herman Goering would have absolutely worshipped Anthony Fauci.
Sen. Josh Hawley gets some company. – I’ve spent the last several days praising Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley for being the first – and until yesterday, only – GOP senator to stand up and say he will challenge congress’s January 6 effort to certify the clearly fraudulent Electoral Vote. I couldn’t help wondering out loud why normally stalwart conservatives like Ted Cruz, Tom Cotton, Rand Paul and a handful of other GOP senators weren’t standing with Hawley and his defiance of Mitch McConnell’s “go along to get along” edict on the matter.
Well, yesterday, Sen. Cruz and 10 more Republican senators decided to finally step up and be counted among those who are properly disturbed by election theft happening all around them, further demanding the conduct of a “10-day emergency audit” of the vote. But interestingly, Senators Paul and Cotton are not among this Gang of 11.
From a story at The Hill:
Eleven Senate Republicans on Saturday announced that they will vote for objections to the Electoral College results Wednesday, when Congress convenes in a joint session to formally count the vote.
GOP Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas), Ron Johnson (Wis.), James Lankford (Okla.), Steve Daines (Mont.), John Kennedy (La.), Marsha Blackburn (Tenn.) and Mike Braun (Ind.) and Sens.-elect Cynthia Lummis (Wyo.), Roger Marshall (Kan.), Bill Hagerty (Tenn.) and Tommy Tuberville (Ala.) said in a joint statement that they will vote against accepting the election results until there is a 10-day audit.
“Congress should immediately appoint an Electoral Commission, with full investigatory and fact-finding authority, to conduct an emergency 10-day audit of the election returns in the disputed states,” they said. “Once completed, individual states would evaluate the Commission’s findings and could convene a special legislative session to certify a change in their vote, if needed.
The senators didn’t say in their joint statement if they plan to object to the results from specific states, how they would divvy up those objections or if they would just vote in support of challenges to the Electoral College results if they reach the Senate.
Why Cotton or Paul are not among the now-dozen GOP senators willing to lodge a challenge is anyone’s guess, since neither has been asked or chosen to comment as far as I can tell. Regardless, you now have a dozen GOP senators and well over 100 members of the House who have figured out that the Trump support base, and thus, at least 80% of the GOP’s entire support base, is not going to be placated on this particular issue.
The fact that so many other GOP members of congress still haven’t figured that fact of life out says nothing good about the future of the Republican Party. Those folks are whistling past their own political graveyards.
That is all.
