Why President Obama’s Transgender Proclamation Is Far Broader and More Dangerous than You Think

The Department of Justice announced a radical new policy regarding transgendered students access to the bathroom of their choice in public schools.  The gist?  Bow down to the Obama Administration’s radical views on transgendered children and allow them access to whatever bathroom they want, or loose all of your federal funding.

And while this is shocking and outrageous, the implications of the DOJ policy are more far-reaching and dangerous than we could have ever imagined.

My husband, David French, explains:

First, the very act of teaching biology and human physiology will be hate speech unless it’s modified to conform to the new transgender “facts.” Teachers will have to take great pains to note that chromosomes, reproductive organs, hormonal systems, and any other physical marker of sex is irrelevant to this thing called “gender,” which, “factually,” is a mere state of mind.

Second, any statements of dissent — from teachers or students — will be treated as both “anti-science” and “discriminatory,” contributing to a “hostile environment” that schools are legally bound to prohibit. This prohibition will go well beyond the use of pronouns and into discussions of what it means to be male and female. The argument that a “girl” with a penis remains a boy will be treated exactly the same as an argument that blacks are inferior to whites or Arabs inferior to Jews.

Third, public schools will now be even further opposed, doctrinally and legally, to orthodox Christianity. Christian parents who send their children to public schools need to be aware of the new “facts.” They will be taught not only that their churches are factually wrong in their assessments of sex and gender but that they are actually bigoted and hateful — comparable to white supremacists.

Fourth, the administration’s actions set a key political precedent. Federal funding — long seen as a boon to local schools — is now clearly and unmistakably an instrument of national control. The federal education bureaucracy is stocked with energetic and creative progressives, and last week’s letter represents just one more step in an ongoing effort to turn money into mandates.

Finally, because the administration’s edict is tied to funding, not even civil disobedience can block its enforcement. In other words, state officials can “defy” the edict all they want, but unless a court rules in their favor, the administration need merely stop a bank transfer to enforce its “guidance.” This would place citizens of dissenting states in the unenviable position of either complying — and sacrificing their kids’ liberty and safety — or defying and seeing cash-strapped schools lose millions of dollars in public support, all while they continue to pay taxes to fund progressive jurisdictions.

As concerned parents and citizens it is imperative that we understand the full weight of the DOJ’s mandate and what it means for our children and the future of education in our country.

I’ve said it before, and I will say it again.  We will be made to care.

Rep. Chris Smith: ‘Planned Parenthood Dismembers or Chemically Poisons a Baby to Death Every 2 Minutes’

This week was a historic week for the pro-life movement.  The momentum is swinging towards protecting life.

For the first time in history, a bill to defund Planned Parenthood was passed by both Houses of Congress and was sent to the President’s desk.  And as expected, President Obama vetoed the bill today.

So what is at stake?  Why is defunding Planned Parenthood so critical?  One member of Congress got it right when he addressed the House this week.  Rep. Chris Smith, who chairs the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Global Human Rights, took to the House floor on Wednesday to explain why he was supporting the bill, which stripped Planned Parenthood of our taxpayer funding: [Read more…]

A Gold Star Dad Makes His Case against the Iran Deal

David French writes on National Review:

The truly chilling thing is that the Obama administration now admits that its “deal” will lead to increased funding for terror groups, yet it persists in arguing that it’s the only way to prevent a war. Yet if Iran is killing American soldiers — and has been doing so for years — can the administration credibly say we’re at peace? 

This dad doesn’t think so.  His son was killed while in Iraq by an Iranian made bomb.

David goes on to say, “The tragic — unconscionable — reality is that if Veterans Against the Deal wanted to do an ad for every American family touched by Iranian terror, these two ads would be followed by a thousand more. Iran is at war with the United States, and Barack Obama’s deal strengthens our enemy.”
