Even more fundamental than the Zeroth Amendment carved on the Statue of Liberty (“Americans suck, immigrants rule”) is the Negative First Amendment, which is scrawled with a Sharpie on the inside of Caitlyn Jenner’s locker at the Sherwood Golf Club.

From the New York Times:

Judge Blocks Trump’s Ban on Transgender Troops in Military
By DAVE PHILIPPS OCT. 30, 2017

A federal judge on Monday temporarily blocked a White House policy barring military service by transgender troops, ruling that it was based on “disapproval of transgender people generally.”

Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly of the Federal District Court for the District of Columbia found the administration’s justification for the ban, which was set to take effect in March 2018, to be suspect and likely unconstitutional. She ruled that the military’s current policy should remain in place.

“There is absolutely no support for the claim that the ongoing service of transgender people would have any negative effective on the military at all,” the judge wrote in a strongly worded, 76-page ruling.

After all, what Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly doesn’t know about the military isn’t worth knowing.

Never forget: As it says in the Constitution, while transgenders like Caitlyn Jenner are sacred, transracials like Rachel Dolezal are, of course, laughable. So feel free to utilize your First Amendment rights on transracials.

  1. After all, what Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly doesn’t know about the military isn’t worth knowing.

    Saying this as woman, women judges were always a bad idea. There are a few out there whom you’d want on the bench. But once they reach gender parity, overall the justice system will also begin to emote, rather than simply be corrupt.

    Thus a judge who will make statements like “it [the ban] was based on “disapproval of transgender people generally.” and imagine that’s brilliant and proper legal thinking.

    Indeed. Female judges, in my experience, should be confined to minor local courts, like housing court. They tend not to understand or respect the limits of their authority. In this case, Trump's authority as Commander-in-chief is not subject to judicial review, period. But here, as with most women, emotions have caused this idiot on the bench to completely trash the Federal principle of separation of powers.

    Other sacred statuses, although not quite as holy as transgenders:

    -Homosexuals – born that way, unless they’re not.
    -White upper middle women when they totally reject the gift of Western Civilization and become pink haired feminists
    -Muslim – cool names, obviously not Christian (TM), finish burn down ancient libraries so less reading. The terrorism thing as been a total fluke/concidence for the last 1400 years and they mostly need a hug and exposure the healing power of the Constitution and getting to know homosexuals, feminists, and transgenders.

    I honestly believe this entire tranny/women in the military thing is pretty much all about reducing enlistments -- of certain types of people.

    They are doing what they can to make the military unappealing to conservative men. It's the same reason leftists want gun control. It isn't about freak mass shootings or gang violence, it's really about disarming whites who aren't on board with the globalist agenda.

    Trannys are at best a distraction, and women in combat have been tested extensively -- and proven to reduce combat capability.

    They know this stuff is harmful, but like immigration and feminism, the detrimental effects are a feature not a bug. The elites are grotesquely rotten at their very core. They need to be removed at all cost.

  6. If the US military goes ahead with this, expect more and more weaponized sexual perversion, as we saw at Abu Ghraib Prison. It’s not going to be funny or quirky to have sexually warped people in the armed forces, it’s going to allow for similar little pockets of Hell-on-earth to form within your vast war machine.

    Does Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly have the sense to realize that? I very much doubt it. She’s probably one of the nice White ladies currently shocked to find out Kevin Spacey is “a pedophile” and thinks it’s a shame how he’s helping spread the vile stereotype that gay men in their mid-20s are sexually attracted to gay youths and sometimes even try to have sex with one of them. Maybe she’s like another White lady expert on male homosexuality who really enjoyed Spacey in “American Beauty” but says the film is ruined for her because it turns out he was just a pedophile sexually attracted to the teenage girl in the film. Another one thought this made sense:

    It's really amazing how all those Nice White Ladies love Gays and Gay Marriage (TM) so much while having ZERO knowledge of (or even curiosity about) the actual behavior of homosexuals. They really believe in the fairy tale that "love is love" and that gay relationships work always exactly the same way as hetero relationships and that gays are just, you know, men who like musicals and interior decoration.

    Wasn't that girl like 17? And didn't he decidedly NOT have sexual relations with her after having second thoughts?

    Speaking of Kevin Spacey, his big mistake was coming out after the pedophilia became public. Had he come out before this had happened, the story likely would have been buried. This is how openly gay director Bryan Singer has largely been able to skate on his own pedophe accusations (of which there are many - see the documentary “An Open Secret”).

    A pedophile is someone who is attracted to pre-pubescent youths, otherwise know as children. Spacey wants to have (some kind of) sex with teenagers, like most poofters. He is not a pedophile. He also took no for an answer, unlike Roman Polanski.

  7. Let’s see. The military’s current policy is one that was put in place recently (Obama administration) based on a policy preference, i.e. a preference in policy that is the president’s prerogative. I’d like to see the basis for the judge’s ruling.

    So, a policy that was changed two years ago, cannot be rescinded because it reflects disapproval of a class of persons no one considered a class of persons until two years and five minutes ago.

    Quite frankly, if we went to elections for federal judges, it would likely create less rancor.

    District Court judges could be elected only by the people of the district they serve in; then Circuit court judges by the people of the circuit they serve; then Supreme Court judges by the whole nation.

    Make them campaign and defend their decisions. Just admit that judicial decisions are not based on impartiality and logic but on what your personal beliefs are. Give every judge two possible 10-year terms, limited by term limits, and be done with it.

    Getting this stink out in the open would preserve the Republic far longer. At this point, these crap judges are making vigilantism a lot more appealing as they continue to abuse the notion that they are impartial jurists.

    Absolutely correct.

    Congress can and should pass a simple law requiring any injunction against the Federal Government to be rendered by federal Courts of Appeals of TWO randomly selected circuits, with appeal to the Supreme Court.

    Various other procedural safeguards could also be added, e.g. timely filing as soon as the relevant facts are known, not holding the case for filing Friday night before an important political deadline.

  14. Disapproval is now verboten.

    It’s not really the 14th Amendment’s fault—the Left clearly would’ve hijacked some kind of constitutional clause or amendment to justify their evil (my bet is the original, now-dead Privileges & Immunities clause)—-but man, if there is one part of the Cosntitution that’s causing way more trouble than all the others, it’s that one.

    The problem the Left doesn’t see is that belief that courts were impartial arbiters of justice keeps countries in order. The average person accepted most court decisions in the past because of this belief that justice was being served fairly.

    However, when the average person sees the court system as corrupt and unjust and based purely on either political beliefs or who bribed them or the judges’ whim, the order breaks down and people will start taking justice into their own hands and stop respecting decisions. The average person sees this today thanks to the Left’s long march through the courts over the past 50 years, and it’s only getting worse with this gay/tranny b.s.

    Justice Kennedy’s decision to force gay marriage on us all in Obergefell v. Hodges was far more damaging to the republic long-term than any decision since Roe v. Wade. It exposed for many of us how openly the courts are merely places where political opinions are the real power, and logic is only used to rationalize the decision.

    Only until the first few people who "start taking justice into their own hands and stop respecting decisions" are quickly gunned down with overwhelming firepower pour encourager les autres. So what if the people stop "respecting" the decisions of liberal judges so long as they can be made to obey by the massive power and violence the state and its enforcement arms can bring to bear. So what if Joe Shmoe thinks the Ninth Circuit's latest ruling on "transgender rights" or whatever is politically-motivated Leftist hooey, if the moment he disobeys it, he gets a bullet to the brain?

    If these people have the mental fortitude and capablilites to serve, why not let them? Have you ever had a sleepover with the opposite sex? People get along great and all the diversity leads to cohesion and better ideas about how to kill the terrorists. As a man, who lost his wife via divorce and she had a sex change while we were married. I think it’s my fault, I didn’t have the unit cohesion with her that I wanted to have. But that’s cool, because the military does not allow people in the same unit to serve together while married. He is a successfull math teacher now and we still share custody of our childrenites.

    Look Steve, I know you're not a military guy, but we could use the bodies. Military recruitment is way down in this great economy that is a carryover of the Obama Administration and his pro- wall street regulations and the rich are doing great. None of the credit should go to Trump for the best economy ever, with below structural unemployment rates in many states. But for real dude. Our military needs bodies, doesn't matter if it's a man or woman, a woman/man, manwomen, womenite, or whatever these radical leftists call it these days. If they can serve, if they are alive, if they are real people, let them serve our nation. Not like we will ever fight any wars for the next 7 years with our anti-war loser President. I see Dr. Steve Sailer wants to discriminate against people that want to help make our country safe. That's okay, because the next generation of transgender boy scouts and female boy scouts are coming of age, and they know, what service is.

    And so what if it is? That doesn’t make it unconstitutional. The military bans obese people, nearsighted pilots, those with neo-Nazi or Klan tattoos, and adulterers (violation of the UCMJ) but it can’t ban trannies? Upon what provision of the Constitution is this “judge’s” ruling based?

    She’d probably argue the “equal protection” clause of the 14th Amendment. But that was supposed to apply to freed Negroes after the Civil War only. Taken literally, it would ban progressive income taxes and gender-specific restrooms (the latter is coming someday, the former probably not… )

    Agreed. People who obsess over their gender so much that they mutilate their bodies are crazy. I can go all day without ever once thinking about my gender. Trannies have a type of mental illness akin to those who have anorexia. The latter thinks they're fat when they're actually a skeleton, and trannies are obsessed with thinking they're actually the opposite gender, and any evidence to the contrary must be attacked and destroyed, even if it's part of their own body.

    The vast majority of humankind gets along fine with being their own gender. This is mentally normal. Both genders have their good and bad points, and practically everybody is okay with the good points of being their own particular gender. They're content with their gender. Contentment is a sign psychological health. Being perpetually unhappy with yourself and convinced that something is wrong with yourself is a sign that you need a psychiatrist.

    It would depend a lot on what their role is and how serious their gender dysphoria is. Trannies have no doubt been serving in western arms forces for many decades, and no one on the left or right has paid them much attention until now.

    However, transsexuals trying to get into combat units are a very recent issue. It isn't hard to think of practical reasons for keeping transsexuals out of combat units, but a general ban on people who have previously gone under the radar is going to be a lot harder to get through.

    Yes, exactly that. Or, more accurately, to the commanding officers who issued the orders those sergeants and those cutting the papers. And after the first few military folks are sent to Federial FITA prison to serve as an example to the others, the rest will cave.

    Impeachment on what grounds? What crime? History shows us that impeaching Federal judges is incredibly difficult, even with clear criminality; for a politicized ruling, no matter how egregious, it's effectively impossible.

    And if Trump actually did order the military to ignore the Judicial Branch, you know every media outlet, Lefty judge, "legal scholar", and non-Trumpist politician will be screaming about "separation of powers" and "autocoup" and "jackbooted fascist dictatorship" and "right-wing death squads" and "the end of American Democracy", and how if Congress doesn't immediately impeach and remove the tyrant Trump, then they are themselves part of the "threat to Amercan Democracy" that must be removed By Any Means Necessary — and remember Scalise — and otherwise force Congress at (just everything short of literal) gunpoint to oust Trump.

    People tend to focus on ideology to explain things but so much of what people feel and ‘think’ has to do more with ‘iconology’.

    We are told, ideologically anyway, that the US is all about equality, but the icono-politics of homos and trannies — the rainbow colors, the mass festivals, sainthood and celebrity — suggest that LGBTQ community is holier and precious.

    Homos have been given tremendous iconic power in the US, and in an age where so much of culture is defined by images and sensory stimuli, the power of ‘iconology’ has a way of overriding the meaning of ideology. Sure, the homomania agenda has been sold as ‘equality’, and at one time, there was some truth to that in the sense that homos wanted equal freedom to do their thing.
    But we are now way past that. It’s no longer enough to let homos be free to be homo. We must praise, celebrate, and hail the homo.
    The reason why Milo got so much mileage was he was a Jewish-Homo ‘conservative’ with thing for Negroes. In a nation where the three groups with most iconic power are Jews, homos, and Negroes, Milo was the intersection of all three. As Jew, he could invoke Shoah and support for Israel, a blood cousin of Anne Frank. As homo, he could promote himself as Mr. Cool and Creativity, flaming flamboyance. With Bungle Fever, he could defend himself from charges of ‘racism’. (Oddly enough, favoring blacks as superior homo-mates is not ‘racist’ even though it’s predicated on racial differences. But then, favoring Jews over Palestinians is also regarded as okay than ‘racist’ when, clearly, one people are being hailed and favored over another. So, ‘racism’ has come to mean “not recognizing blacks as the superior race”, and ‘antisemitism’ has come to mean “not obeying Jews as the master race.”) Due to the power of ‘iconology’, Conservatives were at a moral disadvantage since the Lib Democratic Party was seen as the favored home of the Holy Three; Jews, Homos, and Negroes. So, when Milo claimed to be a ‘conservative’, so many in Con Inc. bent over backwards to welcome him and worship him like the golden calf.

    Ideologically, people say and claim to stand for certain values and principles. But ‘iconologically’, they act at odds with their stated ideology, often without noticing this discrepancy because iconic power has a spellbinding and hypnotic effect on them.
    I mean, how can Americans who claim to be for equality of all peoples be so fanatically pro-Zionist while so insensitive to Palestinian issues? It’s because all those images of Israeli flags juxtaposed with American flags, all those chants about “Israel is America’s closest friend”, all the symbols and hymns about Shoah, and etc have the majority of Americans doped on Philosemitism.

    In a way, the recent NFL controversy is a war of icons. Patriotism as represented by Red, White, and Blue and the National Anthem and Negromania as represented by black athletes who resist symbols of ‘white supremacism’ that has gone from Confederate flag to the American flag itself.
    The thing about blacks is they think everything exists to serve them. Their favorite phrase is ‘have me’. “I wanna have me(this), have me(that).” They had Obama for 8 yrs, and it’s like what Michelle Obama said in 2008, that she was proud for the first time. Blacks are not looking for equality. Like Jews and homos, they seek supremacy and special privilege. And the thing about ‘iconology’ is that icons can never be egalitarian. Icons favor certain images and sounds over others. This is why one set of icons must call for destruction of other sets of icons, like Robert E. Lee monuments. (It’s no wonder Ancient Hebrews came to loathe idols. It always turns everything into a violent sports of iconography vs iconoclasm.) Ideology can be exclusive too, but ideas are more comprehensive than idols, which represent something more specific. So, while ‘democracy’ is an ideology, the image of the Founding Fathers strikes many people as ‘dead white supremacist males’, and as such, those icons must be destroyed. In a way, what we are witnessing today is less a war of ideology than ‘iconology’, with diverse forces vying for Sacred Iconic Status. And this is why the fall of Anthony Weiner and Harvey Weinstein was so worrisome to people like Woody Allen. They really tarnish the iconic image of the Jew as the Eternal Sacrificial Sheep. They come across like Jordan Belfort the wolf.

    But… don’t these globalists sometimes wonder about what they are doing? I mean there is an Iconic Limit to how much the agenda can be pushed. Though many homos are weird, there was also some respectable homos who would even earn the respect of a bourgeois person like Charles Murray.
    But trannies are just too ludicrous. Bruce Caitlyn Jenner as ‘woman of the year’ just doesn’t cut it. Even those who claim to believe are surely faking it on some level. It’s too cartoonish.
    And the sacred black thing has also reached its iconic limit with these spoiled NFL players. When the black sprinters bowed their heads at the 68 Mexican Olympics, it was still the radical 60s with Civil Rights and Vietnam War. It was iconic in the way that Che Guevara’s photo was iconic.
    But these tattooed, trashy, and moronic overpaid thugs in the NFL to pretend victimhood… it’s turning campy and chumpy.

    You truly are joking and pulling our legs, but in the tiny chance that you are not, understand this: Trannies are severely mentally ill. They are more detached from reality than schizophrenics. The very last place they should be is in the military, in close proximity to very dangerous weapons.

    Replies: @Anon, @S. Anonyia

    Agreed. People who obsess over their gender so much that they mutilate their bodies are crazy. I can go all day without ever once thinking about my gender. Trannies have a type of mental illness akin to those who have anorexia. The latter thinks they’re fat when they’re actually a skeleton, and trannies are obsessed with thinking they’re actually the opposite gender, and any evidence to the contrary must be attacked and destroyed, even if it’s part of their own body.

    The vast majority of humankind gets along fine with being their own gender. This is mentally normal. Both genders have their good and bad points, and practically everybody is okay with the good points of being their own particular gender. They’re content with their gender. Contentment is a sign psychological health. Being perpetually unhappy with yourself and convinced that something is wrong with yourself is a sign that you need a psychiatrist.

It’s hard to know where this country is supposed to go once even the pretence of such impartiality is gone. I never though my contempt for judges could sink any lower than it already had. They have managed to surprise even me.

    From Wikipedia on one of Kollar-Kotelly’s earlier rulings: “On July 14, 2004, barely two months after President Bush was forced to end National Security Agency domestic internet metadata collection by Attorney General John Ashcroft, Kollar-Kotelly issued a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court order allowing the NSA to resume domestic internet metadata collection.”

    IOW, trannies have rights granted them nowhere in the Constitution. Our right against unreasonable search and seizure, granted explicitly in the 4th Amendment, does not exist. The “elites” decide what rights we actually have, not the Constitution. It kind of reminds me of the way the EU is demanding that the rights of non-citizens from thousands of miles away to invade EU must be respected, but the self-determination of Catalans whose families have lived in Catalonia for centuries must be suppressed.

    I imagine many EU officials have at least some sympathy towards the cause of Catalan separatism, but it's obvious that the separatists are far from being an overwhelming majority, and an overwhelming majority (at least 3/4) would be the only way for unilateral secession to be even remotely legitimate.

    And you hardly need to be a brilliant statesman to understand that it's generally not wise to intrude in the internal politics of foreign countries. What on earth do EU officials have to gain from sticking their nose in this dispute on the side of Catalonia? They would not only have to not care about the risk of Spain leaving the EU, they would also be overtly condoning any separatist movements in other parts of the EU.

    And if you consider yourself remotely right-wing, Catalan separatists are generally not people who deserve any of your sympathy. Catalan separatism is a wretched hive of communism and villainy.

    Look Steve, I know you're not a military guy, but we could use the bodies. Military recruitment is way down in this great economy that is a carryover of the Obama Administration and his pro- wall street regulations and the rich are doing great. None of the credit should go to Trump for the best economy ever, with below structural unemployment rates in many states. But for real dude. Our military needs bodies, doesn't matter if it's a man or woman, a woman/man, manwomen, womenite, or whatever these radical leftists call it these days. If they can serve, if they are alive, if they are real people, let them serve our nation. Not like we will ever fight any wars for the next 7 years with our anti-war loser President. I see Dr. Steve Sailer wants to discriminate against people that want to help make our country safe.

    These district judges are out of control. We should have Supreme Court and that's it. The final authority. Read the constitution people, like for real, do you even know what America is all about?

    If these people have the mental fortitude and capablilites to serve, why not let them? Have you ever had a sleepover with the opposite sex? People get along great and all the diversity leads to cohesion and better ideas about how to kill the terrorists. As a man, who lost his wife via divorce and she had a sex change while we were married. I think it's my fault, I didn't have the unit cohesion with her that I wanted to have. But that's cool, because the military does not allow people in the same unit to serve together while married. He is a successfull math teacher now and we still share custody of our childrenites.

  52. @Dr. X

    A federal judge on Monday temporarily blocked a White House policy barring military service by transgender troops, ruling that it was based on “disapproval of transgender people generally.”
     
    And so what if it is? That doesn't make it unconstitutional. The military bans obese people, nearsighted pilots, those with neo-Nazi or Klan tattoos, and adulterers (violation of the UCMJ) but it can't ban trannies? Upon what provision of the Constitution is this "judge's" ruling based?

    She'd probably argue the "equal protection" clause of the 14th Amendment. But that was supposed to apply to freed Negroes after the Civil War only. Taken literally, it would ban progressive income taxes and gender-specific restrooms (the latter is coming someday, the former probably not... )

    Replies: @guest

    Rulings don’t have to be based on anything, but obviously they’re setting up trannies as a special class, a “discrete and insular minority” as covered by the satanic Footnote Four.

    Fatties aren’t yet a protected class, unless they count as disabled. Nothing is protected until it is deemed to be by the Men (and women) in Black. Then suddenly they’re special, and you can’t say anything about it, you…you…deplorable person.

    If the US military goes ahead with this, expect more and more weaponized sexual perversion, as we saw at Abu Ghraib Prison. It's not going to be funny or quirky to have sexually warped people in the armed forces, it's going to allow for similar little pockets of Hell-on-earth to form within your vast war machine.

    Does Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly have the sense to realize that? I very much doubt it. She's probably one of the nice White ladies currently shocked to find out Kevin Spacey is "a pedophile" and thinks it's a shame how he's helping spread the vile stereotype that gay men in their mid-20s are sexually attracted to gay youths and sometimes even try to have sex with one of them. Maybe she's like another White lady expert on male homosexuality who really enjoyed Spacey in "American Beauty" but says the film is ruined for her because it turns out he was just a pedophile sexually attracted to the teenage girl in the film. Another one thought this made sense:

    If Coven 666 (whoever these shadowy elitists on high may be; Soros must surely be one of them) can force everyone to say, over and over again, "Black is White. White is Black. 2+2=5. Gender is simply a social construct. Black is White. White is Black. 2+2=5. Gender is simply a social construct...", then they will have destroyed our souls.

    We will no longer be autonomous, free-thinking individuals. If we will go along with that, we will be psychologically capable of going along with absolutely anything at all.

    It would depend a lot on what their role is and how serious their gender dysphoria is. Trannies have no doubt been serving in western arms forces for many decades, and no one on the left or right has paid them much attention until now.

    However, transsexuals trying to get into combat units are a very recent issue. It isn't hard to think of practical reasons for keeping transsexuals out of combat units, but a general ban on people who have previously gone under the radar is going to be a lot harder to get through. My guess it is will be watered down along the lines I've suggested.

    Does Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly have the sense to realize that? I very much doubt it. She's probably one of the nice White ladies currently shocked to find out Kevin Spacey is "a pedophile" and thinks it's a shame how he's helping spread the vile stereotype that gay men in their mid-20s are sexually attracted to gay youths and sometimes even try to have sex with one of them. Maybe she's like another White lady expert on male homosexuality who really enjoyed Spacey in "American Beauty" but says the film is ruined for her because it turns out he was just a pedophile sexually attracted to the teenage girl in the film. Another one thought this made sense:

    Make them campaign and defend their decisions. Just admit that judicial decisions are not based on impartiality and logic but on what your personal beliefs are. Give every judge two possible 10-year terms, limited by term limits, and be done with it.

It's hard to know where this country is supposed to go once even the pretence of such impartiality is gone. I never though my contempt for judges could sink any lower than it already had. They have managed to surprise even me.

    From Wikipedia on one of Kollar-Kotelly's earlier rulings: "On July 14, 2004, barely two months after President Bush was forced to end National Security Agency domestic internet metadata collection by Attorney General John Ashcroft, Kollar-Kotelly issued a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court order allowing the NSA to resume domestic internet metadata collection."

    IOW, trannies have rights granted them nowhere in the Constitution. Our right against unreasonable search and seizure, granted explicitly in the 4th Amendment, does not exist. The "elites" decide what rights we actually have, not the Constitution. It kind of reminds me of the way the EU is demanding that the rights of non-citizens from thousands of miles away to invade EU must be respected, but the self-determination of Catalans whose families have lived in Catalonia for centuries must be suppressed.

    Replies: @AndrewR, @Kevin C.

    I imagine many EU officials have at least some sympathy towards the cause of Catalan separatism, but it’s obvious that the separatists are far from being an overwhelming majority, and an overwhelming majority (at least 3/4) would be the only way for unilateral secession to be even remotely legitimate.

    And you hardly need to be a brilliant statesman to understand that it’s generally not wise to intrude in the internal politics of foreign countries. What on earth do EU officials have to gain from sticking their nose in this dispute on the side of Catalonia? They would not only have to not care about the risk of Spain leaving the EU, they would also be overtly condoning any separatist movements in other parts of the EU.

    And if you consider yourself remotely right-wing, Catalan separatists are generally not people who deserve any of your sympathy. Catalan separatism is a wretched hive of communism and villainy.

Congress should decide who may serve in the military and who may enter the US. Just because Obama overstepped his bounds, doesn't mean Trump should just reverse all of Obama's autocratic decrees. We desperately need a president who will voluntarily and eagerly begin the process of diminishing the power of the executive branch, but of course Trump will be the last one to do that because his ego is so big even by presidential standards.

    It still keeps up the illusion--with the life tenure they are afforded, and the pomp and circumstance of court--that courts are somehow impartial arbiters of truth, when they are nothing of the sort. Electing them is way more honest and admits the truth, because the average American knows the courts aren't there for truth.

    If we don't, and keep on with this Article III nonsense, we will soon enough end up like nations where no one calls the police because the courts are too corrupt to be trusted, and people either become perpetual peasant victims or else join mafia-esque goon squads to dole out street justice.

She's probably one of the nice White ladies currently shocked to find out Kevin Spacey is "a pedophile" and thinks it's a shame how he's helping spread the vile stereotype that gay men in their mid-20s are sexually attracted to gay youths and sometimes even try to have sex with one of them. Maybe she's like another White lady expert on male homosexuality who really enjoyed Spacey in "American Beauty" but says the film is ruined for her because it turns out he was just a pedophile sexually attracted to the teenage girl in the film.

    Thing is, it really made no sense why didn’t come out before. He was already rumored to be gay, and those that weren’t aware (much of the movie-going public), wouldn’t have been surprised to learn he was gay. It wouldn’t have adversely affected his career much; he was never a romantic lead like Rock Hudson, or an action star, or very much of a leading man to begin with. He’s best at dramatic supporting roles or as villains.

    Could be that Spacey was saving coming out for when news of alleged assault or whatever broke. Then at the very least news stories would be split (though not evenly) between "Spacey gay!" and "Spacey a predator!"

    Also, though you say the story would've been buried had he been a known gay, I think it was one of them "open secrets." So he could reasonably expect some gay cover anyway. And I think coming out of the closet at the same time the story breaks is supposed to give him retroactive cover.

    “Transgenderism” is the most fundamental issue in American society today. Why?

    If Coven 666 (whoever these shadowy elitists on high may be; Soros must surely be one of them) can force everyone to say, over and over again, “Black is White. White is Black. 2+2=5. Gender is simply a social construct. Black is White. White is Black. 2+2=5. Gender is simply a social construct…”, then they will have destroyed our souls.

    We will no longer be autonomous, free-thinking individuals. If we will go along with that, we will be psychologically capable of going along with absolutely anything at all.

    Thing is, it really made no sense why didn’t come out before. He was already rumored to be gay, and those that weren’t aware (much of the movie-going public), wouldn’t have been surprised to learn he was gay. It wouldn’t have adversely affected his career much; he was never a romantic lead like Rock Hudson, or an action star, or very much of a leading man to begin with.

    Also, though you say the story would’ve been buried had he been a known gay, I think it was one of them “open secrets.” So he could reasonably expect some gay cover anyway.

    Trannys are at best a distraction, and women in combat have been tested extensively — and proven to reduce combat capability.

Trump can't hope for the judiciary to switch like it did for FDR, no matter how crafty he is.

Maybe she's like another White lady expert on male homosexuality who really enjoyed Spacey in "American Beauty" but says the film is ruined for her because it turns out he was just a pedophile sexually attracted to the teenage girl in the film.

People get along great and all the diversity leads to cohesion and better ideas about how to kill the terrorists. As a man, who lost his wife via divorce and she had a sex change while we were married. I think it's my fault, I didn't have the unit cohesion with her that I wanted to have. But that's cool, because the military does not allow people in the same unit to serve together while married. He is a successfull math teacher now and we still share custody of our childrenites.

    Way back in January, the Chateau Heartiste blog recommended that Trump crush the judiciary. Here's the latest reason why. Trump should do it now--simply instruct the military, as commander in chief, to disregard any federa court orders pertaining to any aspects of military administration. What's the DC judge going to do--send federal marshals to arrest recruiting sergeants who tell transexuals that they're ineligible, or officers cutting discharge papers for them? (What she should be doing is organizing her defense to impeachment and removal from office.)

    At least we have the honesty that they are elected and are making political decisions. The current situation is not only farcically insulting to the evidence of their political nature, but grants judges an immunity from having to deal with the political consequences of their actions, and also protects them from ordinary corruption investigations.

    A pedophile is someone who is attracted to pre-pubescent youths, otherwise know as children. Spacey wants to have (some kind of) sex with teenagers, like most poofters. He is not a pedophile. He also took no for an answer, unlike Roman Polanski.

    Replies: @Harry Baldwin

    Someone has worked this all out:
    Pedophiles are attracted to prepubescent children.
    Hebephiles are attracted to children at the cusp of puberty, between the ages of, roughly, 11 to 14 years of age.
    Ephebophiles are attracted to 15- to 16-year-olds.
    Teleiophiless are attracted to those 17 years of age or older.
    Gerontophiles are attracted to the elderly.

    Yes, this has to be one of the best proofs of the saying "timing is everything". Spacey was "so far in the closet, he was in Narnia" as the joke goes. If he'd tearfully and joyfully outed himself a while ago, this recent accusation would have been glossed over. People in the clickbait media would be terrified that news of an unfortunate sexual encounter thirty years ago between two gay, post-pubescent Broadway actors could lead to another Alt Right pogrom, like the one in Orlando last year.

    Spacey was found guilty as a straight White male pedophile, who only made things worse by saying he now "chooses" (chooses!!) to live as a gay man. If he'd just had his gay certification done first, this incident in his apartment in the '80s would be none of our beeswax.

    Replies: @Hapalong Cassidy, @guest, @Moshe, @Inquiring Mind

    Mr. Spacey is what he is and he knows what he is. This is not, “I get turned on by women, but I will ‘choose’ to be gay to deflect the scandal of being accused of coming on to an underage man.” This is “I get turned on by men, but I will no longer in public ‘live the lie’ that people think that I get turned on by women.” He “chooses to live as a gay man”, meaning he chooses to live as a man who is publically identified as being gay rather than as a man trying to cover this up.

    The judiciary has been enmeshed in politics since the colonial era. One way or another, they are, and always have been, answerable to the sovereign people. Quite the myth has grown up around judges in recent decades. I’m not sure why. Because they facilitated 1960s nonsense? A bit of mystique may be beneficial, but it’s definitely time to trim back their divine aura.

    Exceeding peace had made Ben Adhem bold,
    And to the presence in the room he said,

    And with a look made of all sweet accord,
    Answered, "The names of those who love the Lord."
    "And is mine one?" said Abou. "Nay, not so,"
    Replied the angel. Abou spoke more low,
    But cheerly still; and said, "I pray thee, then,
    Write me as one that loves his fellow men."

    The angel wrote, and vanished. The next night

    Disapproval is now verboten.

    It's not really the 14th Amendment's fault---the Left clearly would've hijacked some kind of constitutional clause or amendment to justify their evil (my bet is the original, now-dead Privileges & Immunities clause)----but man, if there is one part of the Cosntitution that's causing way more trouble than all the others, it's that one.

    The problem the Left doesn't see is that belief that courts were impartial arbiters of justice keeps countries in order. The average person accepted most court decisions in the past because of this belief that justice was being served fairly.

    However, when the average person sees the court system as corrupt and unjust and based purely on either political beliefs or who bribed them or the judges' whim, the order breaks down and people will start taking justice into their own hands and stop respecting decisions. The average person sees this today thanks to the Left's long march through the courts over the past 50 years, and it's only getting worse with this gay/tranny b.s.

    Justice Kennedy's decision to force gay marriage on us all in Obergefell v. Hodges was far more damaging to the republic long-term than any decision since Roe v. Wade. It exposed for many of us how openly the courts are merely places where political opinions are the real power, and logic is only used to rationalize the decision.

So what if the people stop “respecting” the decisions of liberal judges so long as they can be made to obey by the massive power and violence the state and its enforcement arms can bring to bear. So what if Joe Shmoe thinks the Ninth Circuit’s latest ruling on “transgender rights” or whatever is politically-motivated Leftist hooey, if the moment he disobeys it, he gets a bullet to the brain?

    District Court judges could be elected only by the people of the district they serve in; then Circuit court judges by the people of the circuit they serve; then Supreme Court judges by the whole nation.

    Make them campaign and defend their decisions. Just admit that judicial decisions are not based on impartiality and logic but on what your personal beliefs are. Give every judge two possible 10-year terms, limited by term limits, and be done with it.

    Impeachment on what grounds? What crime? History shows us that impeaching Federal judges is incredibly difficult, even with clear criminality; for a politicized ruling, no matter how egregious, it’s effectively impossible.

    And if Trump actually did order the military to ignore the Judicial Branch, you know every media outlet, Lefty judge, “legal scholar”, and non-Trumpist politician will be screaming about “separation of powers” and “autocoup” and “jackbooted fascist dictatorship” and “right-wing death squads” and “the end of American Democracy”, and how if Congress doesn’t immediately impeach and remove the tyrant Trump, then they are themselves part of the “threat to Amercan Democracy” that must be removed By Any Means Necessary — and remember Scalise — and otherwise force Congress at (just everything short of literal) gunpoint to oust Trump.

They have managed to surprise even me.

    From Wikipedia on one of Kollar-Kotelly's earlier rulings: "On July 14, 2004, barely two months after President Bush was forced to end National Security Agency domestic internet metadata collection by Attorney General John Ashcroft, Kollar-Kotelly issued a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court order allowing the NSA to resume domestic internet metadata collection."

    IOW, trannies have rights granted them nowhere in the Constitution. Our right against unreasonable search and seizure, granted explicitly in the 4th Amendment, does not exist. The "elites" decide what rights we actually have, not the Constitution.

    I am growing very tired of unelected, unaccountable federal judges legislating from the bench and overruling our elected lawmakers. Maybe a project for Trump to take up.

    I suppose I should also note that FDR didn't have to wait long to get his way. Not on packing SCOTUS but on getting the decisions he wanted, which would have made the issue moot if it wasn't already dead. The so-called "switch in time that saved nine" came only a couple of months after FDR's packing bill was introduced, though I don't see causation. Trump can't hope for the judiciary to switch like it did for FDR, no matter how crafty he is.

    Unless the ruling class changes its mind, or judges start fearing lynch mobs, which are both unlikely. Because in the 30s progressive intellectuals were taking over the law. The judicial philosophy of the "four horsemen," those accommodating fellows who struck down much of the New Deal's nastiness for us, were not being replaced. Alien thinking was ascendant in schools and the profession. The swing votes could be swayed by the rising tide.

    Trump is unable to rely on any such thing. Harvard, Yale, and Columbia aren't about to go nationalist.

    Exactly. In Trump versus the Judiciary, the victory of the judiciary is guaranteed, because the real power is on their side.

    FDR most definitely got his way. See, "switch in time that saved nine." Admittedly, it's a bit more complicated with respect to the motivations of individual justices, but, one way or another, FDR would have won that battle.

    The judiciary has been enmeshed in politics since the colonial era. One way or another, they are, and always have been, answerable to the sovereign people. Quite the myth has grown up around judges in recent decades. I'm not sure why. Because they facilitated 1960s nonsense? A bit of mystique may be beneficial, but it's definitely time to trim back their divine aura.

    No, they really aren’t anymore. There’s nothing “the sovereign people” can do to stop them.

    You are right bout this prime amendment thing. On the victim/special treatment hierarchy I think that Trannies even trump Muslims at this point. I have just been temporarily banned from Facebook and put on double secret probation for making fun of Trannies in a post.

    So Playboy is going to feature a Tranny centerfold model for Nov. 2017. Apparently Playboy is going to show all the "parts". Egad!!! I'm sure that this would have been too much, even for the debauched Hugh Hefner. He left the world just in time. Maybe I should still buy the issue, you know, for the interesting articles.

    I wouldn’t bet on that.

  182. Trump should defy the order and say that the judge has no standing to rule on matters that are within his purview as C-in-C of the military.

    She’s probably one of the nice White ladies currently shocked to find out Kevin Spacey is “a pedophile” and thinks it’s a shame how he’s helping spread the vile stereotype that gay men in their mid-20s are sexually attracted to gay youths

     

    It's really amazing how all those Nice White Ladies love Gays and Gay Marriage (TM) so much while having ZERO knowledge of (or even curiosity about) the actual behavior of homosexuals. They really believe in the fairy tale that "love is love" and that gay relationships work always exactly the same way as hetero relationships and that gays are just, you know, men who like musicals and interior decoration. How dumb can you get.

    That is the narrative that is pushed on women in movies, TV, books, etc. – the idea that gays are just fabulous best-friends to women. The media seldom (if ever, anymore) portrays aggressive and/or women-hating homosexuals, or the true nature of the bathhouse rangers.

  184. At least Colleen Kollar-Kotelly’s ruling was based on feelz (it’s not OK to be mean to transexuals) and not on BS arguments, like for instance the vital importance of tranny troops for 21st Century warfare.
    It’s depressing when judges start sounding and looking like your granny.

    Lots of states have judicial retention elections--a judge or justice has to "run against his record," every so often. A few years ago in Iowa all of the supreme court justices who had voted for homosexual marriage (the decision was unanimous) lost their jobs in the next retention election (not all justices are up for a retention election in the same year. It's a pretty good system.

    “Way back in January, the Chateau Heartiste blog recommended that Trump crush the judiciary.’

    You mean an asshat blog who reinvented itself because the proprietor is hitting the wall recommended an unconstitutional action.

    How about men or women growing a beard when they serve in Afghanistan or Iraq? To blend in with the locals? You obviously know nothing about the military or our operations overseas and are therfore unequipped to handle the truth. My old professor at Oberlin used to tell me "They don't understand academic rigor or go to college."

    I was on the fence about you as satire/serious until “Oberlin”. Well played sir.
