I’m 80 years old and the America I knew is finished .
For years watching increasingly radical notions become accepted I wondered if America was becoming so radicalized it was beyond saving. My fears were finally confirmed when I read:
House votes down proposal to ban DOD payments for gender transition surgeries
The House voted down a Republican proposal that would have prohibited the Pentagon from paying for gender transition surgeries for transgender service members, 209-214. Twenty-four Republicans joined Democrats in opposing the measure.
GOP Rep. Vicky Hartzler, of Missouri, had introduced an amendment to the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would have rolled back an Obama directive requiring the Defense Department to pay for transgender surgeries. In a statement about the amendment, Hartzler argued that the government shouldn’t be paying for “very expensive gender change surgeries that even most private insurance plans don’t cover.”
She also suggested that spending funds on the surgeries — which she pointed out would cost about a billion dollars over the next decade — would damage the country’s military readiness, and she said that her proposal would ensure “our defense resources are allocated in a way that is smart and good for our national defense.”
Rep. Duncan Hunter, of California, who supported the bill, doesn’t believe American taxpayers shouldn’t have to pay for the treatments. “Figure out whether you’re man or a woman before you join,” Hunter said.
House Democratic Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi, of California, said in a statement that Republicans “should be ashamed.”
“[I]nstead of protecting the men and women who risk their lives to defend our freedoms, they are fighting to rip away the health care of thousands of brave service members,” Pelosi wrote. “This cowardly Republican amendment targeting transgender men and women in uniform effectively bans these patriotic Americans from serving their country.”
Starting last October, Tricare, the program covering all uniformed service members and their beneficiaries, began covering therapy and hormone treatments, including gender reassignment surgeries for eligible soldiers. A year ago, RAND released a study about the implications of covering these treatments. It estimated that there are between 1,320 – 6,630 transgender service members in active service but also projected, based on survey and private health insurance claims data, that only a small fraction — between 29 and 129 — of those active service members would seek transition-related care that could interfere with deployment.
RAND estimated that the cost of care related to transition treatments would mean an increase of between $2.4 million and $8.4 million each year, or a 0.04 – 0.13 percent increase overall in active-duty health care expenditures.
Before the howls of protest against me begin let me make it clear that I willingly accept that anyone has the right to purchase any elective surgery. DOD does not finance elective surgery. DOD will not finance a nose job. Nose job activists have not yet found support in the Congress but in today’s America it’s possible that they will.
Have you ever wondered why the elite hate Donald Trump so much? There have certainly been many politicians throughout the years that have been disliked, but with Trump there is a hatred that is so intense that it almost seems tangible at times. During the campaign, they went to extraordinary lengths to destroy him, but it didn’t work. And now that he is president, the attacks against him have been absolutely relentless. So why is there so much animosity toward Trump? Is it just because he is not a member of their club?
The truth, of course, is that it runs much deeper than that. Ultimately, the elite hate Trump because he is opposed to their demonic one world agenda. Many among the elite are referred to as “globalists” because their eventual goal is to unite the whole world under a single planetary system. These globalists truly believe that they know better than all the rest of us, and they want to impose their way of doing things on every man, woman and child on the entire planet.
So they get really angry when Donald Trump talks of “building a wall” or establishing a travel ban from certain countries because they eventually want a world without any borders at all.
And they get really angry when Donald Trump says that he wants to pull the United States out of international trade deals, because the elite were using those international trade deals to slowly integrate all nations into a single one world economy.
And they really don’t like when Donald Trump criticizes Islam, because Islam is going to be a key component of the one world religion that they plan to establish.
For quite a while the globalists were on a roll, but recently they have experienced some tremendous setbacks. Britain’s vote to leave the EU and the election of Donald Trump were not supposed to happen, and this has left many globalists searching for answers. In fact, just today I came across a New York Times article entitled “Besieged Globalists Ponder What Went Wrong“…
Until recently, you didn’t hear people being referred to as “globalist” very often. But in a time of rising nationalism, those who see the upside of globalism have become a distinct — and often embattled — tribe.
Last week, the globalists had a big family reunion in New York. The gathering was focused on the United Nations General Assembly, but a growing array of side conferences and summits and dinners also attracted concerned internationalists of every stripe: humanitarians, leaders of nongovernmental organizations, donors, investors, app peddlers, celebrities.
As you can see, even the New York Times uses the term “globalists” to describe these elitists.
At one time you would have been considered a “conspiracy theorist” is you spoke of “globalists”, but at this point the elite are not even trying to put up a facade any longer.
And of course Donald Trump made opposition to globalism one of the central themes of his campaign, and it really struck a chord all across America. As Dr. Jim Garlow noted in an article that went viral just before the election, Trump’s opposition to globalism was one of the key things that set him apart from Hillary Clinton…
Trump opposes globalism. Hillary thrives on it. Globalism is far more than “geographical” or “eliminating national borders and boundaries.” It is spiritual and demonic at its core. Few—very few—understand this. This is quite likely one of the main reasons why Trump is hated. Do your homework on this one. Think “principalities and powers.” Serious. Extremely serious.
The reason why the threat of globalism is so serious is because if a single global system is ever established there will be no escape from it.
Just think about it – where could you go to escape a government that literally rules the entire world?
These globalists are completely convinced that if they could just get control of everyone and everything that they could establish some sort of environmentally-friendly socialist utopia where war and poverty are eradicated. But in order to do that, they would need to be in a position to micro-manage the lives of every single person on the planet.
In their minds it would not be tyranny, but for those of us that love freedom that is precisely what it would be.
The globalists want a one world government, a one world economy and a one world religion. Those of us that are Christians know that the Bible speaks of a time when this will happen, but even many that are not Christians are deeply concerned about what the globalists are pushing for. Just consider the words of George Mason University Law School Professor Jeremy Rabkin…
In a Tuesday CP interview, Rabkin, a Jew, expressed his distaste for Donald Trump. But on globalism, he said, “beyond that it is not democratic, there’s something about it that is a little creepy, a little uncanny.”
“It’s basically saying ‘We are going to organize the world in a way that establishes an artificial consensus.’ It’s not enough to say it’s undemocratic. It’s threatening; it’s almost demonic. It is a world organized independently of people’s fundamental religious convictions,” Rabkin said.
I think that when Rabkin chose the word “demonic” that he was right on point.
The global elite have already had a tremendous amount of success in promoting values, systems and laws that are “anti-Christian” around the globe.
The globalists control the mainstream media, they control Hollywood, they control our education system and they control most of our politicians.
They thought that they were almost ready to move into the final stages of their agenda, but then Donald Trump happened.
For the moment, the momentum toward a one world system has been stopped cold.
But that doesn’t mean that the globalists will stop trying. Just because Trump won the election does not mean that they are going to roll over and die.
The elite are going to use all of the resources at their disposal to try to destroy Trump, even if that means creating a tremendous amount of chaos.
If you study the globalists, you will quickly discover that one of their favorite tactics is to create order out of chaos. So in the months ahead I think that it is quite likely that we may see quite a bit of chaos as the globalists attempt to get their program back on track.
But if we understand what they are doing, we will be able to see through their games. So let’s keep shining a light on these globalists, because they always prefer to operate in the darkness.
Peoplekind (mankind now not politically correct) has been around for thousands of centuries and it’s only the last 50 or 60 years that America has been preoccupied with the “oppressed” minorities (including women who are the majority).
How in the world did we progress so far oppressively backward male dominated as we are. Americans have advanced from the existence portrayed above to a state of luxury and ease unimaginable just a few years ago (1930s).
Meanwhile the “impoverished” are watching flat screen television, talking on their smart phones in their air conditioned homes. Women in the House, the Senate, close to the Presidency. Vast swaths of the political, academic, and media hierarchy insisting that women MUST be believed when they charge men with ….. . Women in the military – pilots, combat units, Seals, whatever. LGPTQ folks no longer vilified but held up as admirable. Minorities heavily represented in the most esteemed universities, the media, business, the professions, politics, whatever-wherever . And on and on Ad infinitum.
Yet the oppressed (now violently) proclaim their continued state of oppression. It’s NOT enough – it will NEVER be enough.
A 70 year old, married 50 years to a “good man” , retired history professor published in the Washington Post:
By Victoria Bissell Brown
Victoria Bissell Brown, a retired history professor at Grinnell College, lives in Haverford Township, Pa. October 12 I yelled at my husband last night. Not pick-up-your-socks yell. Not how-could-you-ignore-that-red-light yell. This was real yelling. This was 30 minutes of from-the-gut yelling. Triggered by a small, thoughtless, dismissive, annoyed, patronizing comment. Really small. A micro-wave that triggered a hurricane. I blew. Hard and fast. And it terrified me. I’m still terrified by what I felt and what I said. I am almost 70 years old. I am a grandmother. Yet in that roiling moment, screaming at my husband as if he represented every clueless male on the planet (and I every angry woman of 2018), I announced that I hate all men and wish all men were dead. If one of my grandchildren yelled something that ridiculous, I’d have to stifle a laugh.
My husband of 50 years did not have to stifle a laugh. He took it dead seriously. He did not defend his remark, he did not defend men. He sat, hunched and hurt, and he listened. For a moment, it occurred to me to be grateful that I’m married to a man who will listen to a woman. The winds calmed ever so slightly in that moment. And then the storm surge welled up in me as I realized the pathetic impotence of nice men’s plan to rebuild the wreckage by listening to women. As my rage rushed through the streets of my mind, toppling every memory of every good thing my husband has ever done (and there are scores of memories), I said the meanest thing I’ve ever said to him: Don’t you dare sit there and sympathetically promise to change. Don’t say you will stop yourself before you blurt out some impatient, annoyed, controlling remark. No, I said, you can’t change. You are unable to change. You don’t have the skills and you won’t do it. You, I said, are one of the good men. You respect women, you believe in women, you like women, you don’t hit women or rape women or in any way abuse women. You have applauded and funded feminism for a half-century. You are one of the good men. And you cannot change. You can listen all you want, but that will not create one iota of change.
In the centuries of feminist movements that have washed up and away, good men have not once organized their own mass movement to change themselves and their sons or to attack the mean-spirited, teasing, punching thing that passes for male culture. Not once. Bastards. Don’t listen to me. Listen to each other. Talk to each other. Earn your power for once.
The gender war that has broken out in this country is flooding all our houses. It’s rising on the torrent of memories that every woman has. Those memories have come loose from the attic and the basement where we’ve stashed them. They are floating all around us and there is no place left to store them out of sight. Not just memories of sexual abuse. Memories of being dismissed, disdained, distrusted. Memories of having to endure put-downs at the office, catcalls in the parking lot, barked orders at a dinner party. And, for some reason, the most chilling memory of all, the one Christine Blasey Ford called up and that we all recognized: the laughter. The laughter of men who are bonding with each other by mocking us. When Ford testified under oath that the laughter is the sharpest memory of her high school assault, every woman within the sound of her voice could hear that laughter, had heard that laughter, somewhere, somehow.
No man right now understands the flood that is rushing through women’s brains, and only women in the deepest denial have evacuated their minds before the flood could reach them.
When good men like Sen. Christopher A. Coons (D-Del.) give heartfelt, sincere speeches about how we must listen to women, I don’t know whether to coo or laugh or cry or yell. Think about “listen to women” as a program for change. It says to women: You will continue to suffer these abuses, men will continue to do disgusting things to you, the storms will keep coming, the tide will continue to rise, but now, we will listen and help you rebuild.
Pay attention people: If we do not raise boys to walk humbly and care deeply, if we do not demand that men do more than just listen, we will all drown in the flood. And there is no patriarchal Noah to save us.
She ACTUALLY wishes ALL men were dead.
Apparently a substantial number of American women agree with her. Sheesh
