We are told that the DC riot killed five people. Sometimes seven deaths are linked to the riot. But here’s the truth, as far as we’ve been officially told:
Of seven deaths, two were officers who committed suicide after the riot. We have never been given any evidence or any reason to believe that their suicides had anything to do with the riot. This is simply an assumption that many have made.
Of the five who died in or shortly after the riot, one was a man with a pre existing condition who suffered a heart attack. Another suffered a stroke at some point that day and died in a hospital.
One woman collapsed while in a rush of people outside the Capitol and died. We were told she was “trampled to death.” The medical examiner never confirmed that as the cause of death. We have not been given any additional information.
The fourth civilian death was Ashli Babbitt. She was an unarmed woman shot and killed by a Capitol Police officer inside the Capitol.
The fifth death was Officer Sicknick. We have been given absolutely no official information about his death at all. The only thing they’re telling us is that he was at the riot and later died. The autopsy results are being withheld. Nobody has been arrested for his murder.
So of the five deaths linked to the riot, only one — Babbit — can be conclusively considered a death caused by violence during the riot. Only the violence in this case was done by a cop. That is what we know right now. If anyone knows more, they aren’t telling us.
Does this matter? Yes, because the truth matters. Also because the “deadly riot” characterization is how they’re justifying the military occupation of DC. People died. It’s tragic. But the how and the why really matter. A lot.

🧵Last night, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals delivered a devastating ruling for the trans cult. No other court decision has so thoroughly dismantled, point-by-point, every disingenuous argument from trans activists.
2/ The case arose because of laws in TN & KY banning the use of puberty blockers & sterilizing cross-sex hormones on kids. The laws were passed after my reporting on Vanderbilt’s gender clinic, and how they see some gender “treatments” as big money makers.…
3/ Trans activists were apoplectic. The ACLU went to court. Initially, they convinced a judge to block it. I said at the time that the judge’s ruling was terrible & would be overturned. But admittedly, I had no idea how bad it would be for the trans cult.…

🧵A few months ago, the Left was celebrating the "Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence." The LA Dodgers gave them an award. Public elementary schools invited them to read to children. Anyone who suggested this depraved group shouldn't be applauded was labeled a hateful bigot.

2/ Yet it’s been radio silence since the August 12 arrest of a "Sister" for indecent exposure after witnesses say he masturbated in public. Meet Clinton Monroe Ellis-Gilmore, who, according to social media posts, goes by “Novice Sister Bethe Cockhim,” & “Novice Sister Man Romeo.”
3/ According to the police report obtained by @realDailyWire, witnesses claim Clinton was masturbating in his car for an hour last month at a public beachside park that Google lists as “good for kids” and “kid-friendly hikes.” With the door open. In broad daylight. On a Saturday.

This is insane. Every adult oriented product has age verification requirements. But if the same basic standard is applied to internet porn suddenly it’s a First Amendment violation? Image
Check ID for alcohol: okay

Check ID for tobacco: okay

Check ID for R rated movie: okay

Check ID for cough syrup: okay

Check ID for hardcore internet porn: OMG THE FIRST AMENDMENT IS BEING DESTROYED!!!!
Perhaps the most absurd thing about this is that back when they used to sell physical porn magazines at the gas station or whatever, they would check IDs. Nobody ever complained that their First Amendment rights were violated.

This would be hilarious if it wasn’t so grotesque and evil. Another bogus “study,” this one claiming that ZERO patients regret chopping their breasts off. How could they possibly arrive at this conclusion? Well let’s do what the media never does and actually read the study
First of all, this was a survey relying on self-reported data from 139 patients at one single hospital. Some of the patients were only 2 or 3 years out from surgery. They all would have of course known why they were being asked the questions and what the political implications……
Over 40 percent of those surveyed didn’t respond. How many of the non-responders do regret the surgery and for that reason would rather not participate in a study about it? I guess we’re supposed to assume that number is zero. Which is highly implausible. Image

I’m not saying that all therapy is a waste of time but I am saying that many of the worst and most dysfunctional people I’ve ever met have been going to therapy for years and there is no indication that it’s done them any actual good whatsoever
Part of the problem is that many therapists and psychologists have a fundamentally flawed view of humanity and what constitutes good and healthy thinking and behavior. They end up making every problem worse because they don’t understand what the real problems even are.
The very fact that so many people “need” to be in therapy for years is a pretty good indication that a lot of therapy is bullshit. If it’s helping then you shouldn’t need to keep going back forever.

1/ This week, federal Judge Eli Richardson declined to halt Tennessee’s ban on child mutilation surgeries. But he issued an injunction against the state’s ban on chemically castrating & sterilizing minors. The opinion is astonishingly bad & the state AG has already appealed.
2/ Judge Richardson cites the Supreme Court case, Troxel v. Granville, to support the idea that parents have a "fundamental right" to make decisions about their kids' "medical care." This case, from 2000, was about visitation rights. It had nothing to do with transgenderism.

3/ Judge Richardson additionally cites the Sixth Circuit case, Kanuszewski, which also had nothing to do with transgenderism. It's about blood samples from newborns. From these two cases, he determines that parents have the authority to control their children's "medical care."
