Weiner Again

By | Legal, News and Events | No Comments

weinermsnbcA few weeks back, I had the opportunity to watch the documentary “Weiner.”

It tracks the life of disgraced ex-congressman Anthony Weiner as he tries a political comeback in New York’s gubernatorial race. It is absolutely fascinating, in large part because you get to see Anthony Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin (who is also Hillary Clinton’s protégé and right hand) trying to handle the horrible circus that is her husband as best she can.

I wanted to write about my impressions after watching the documentary, but other things took precedent, and (I kid you not) I figured Weiner would do something else soon that would give me the opportunity to write about it.

Well, I’m afraid the time has come. Headlines are popping up everywhere that he is, not surprisingly, embroiled in yet another sexting scandal.

If you watch “Weiner,” you will clearly see why I was confident he would do something stupid again. There is no repentance or remorse in this man following his famous scandals. He has no shame. Sure, he regrets getting caught sending lewd messages to several women on Twitter. But everything seems to be a game for this man.

Still, if the reports are true, he has managed to shock me once again. He has gone lower than I thought him capable.

The People v. Obama’s Transgender Mandate

By | Legal, News and Events | No Comments

Screen Shot 2016-08-23 at 12.38.35 PMUsing government force to bring about liberal policies at any cost seems to be one of President Obama’s favorite past times.  One of his latest moves has been to try to force schools, under the threat of losing vital government funding, to open their restrooms so that transgender students and school workers can use the bathroom, locker room, shower, or overnight facility of their choice.

Supreme Court Stays Ruling Forcing Schools to Allow Transgender Students to Use the Bathroom of Their Choice

By | Defense of Family, Education, Legal, News and Events, Press Releases, Virginia, Washington | No Comments

CWALAC_MediaStatementWashington, D.C. – The Supreme Court has put on hold a Fourth Circuit Court ruling requiring a Virginia school district to accommodate a transgender high school student’s request to use the boys’ bathroom. The justices split 5-3 on the issue to temporarily lift the obligation of the Gloucester County school system to allow one of their students to use the bathroom of her choice in accordance with Obama Administration guidance. CWA CEO and President Penny Nance has this to say:

“We commend the Supreme Court for voting to stay this case and encourage them to do the right thing when the time comes to rule on the merits.

“This case is a result of yet another Obama Administration overreach. To require schools to allow students into any bathroom of their choice is an overstep on legal boundaries by redefining the scope and reach of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and slapping the heavy hand of government on local schools.

“This would also impact the use of showers, locker rooms, school travel and more. This unwise and rash policy would favor the desires of a small group over young women with religious, cultural, and modesty concerns. The Court should not shove this unwise policy on the states.

“Schools all over this nation have rightly worked on a case-by-case basis to accommodate kids struggling with gender dysphoria. They should not be forced by big government to violate the privacy of other students and perhaps even create trauma for the very kids Obama pretends to protect. Local school districts, with the input of parents and health professionals, should be setting school policy on such a sensitive and controversial issue, not Washington.

“Finally, the left always uses children to accomplish its goals of social reengineering. The adults closest to these children should decide what’s best for all the children in the school. Safety and kindness should be the guiding principles, not threats from the bullies in Washington. We hope the Supreme Court agrees.”
