Minnesota lawmakers on Thursday advanced legislation that would establish the state as a "trans refuge" for children who are seeking transgender medical procedures but who may be denied "gender-affirming care" in other states. In a party-line 68-62 vote, the Minnesota House passed HF 146, which had been introduced by Rep. Leigh Finke of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party. Finke is the state's first transgender lawmaker. Democrats supporting the bill say the legislation will protect transgender people, their families and healthcare providers from facing legal repercussions for traveling to Minnesota to obtain cross-sex hormone prescriptions or sex-change procedures.

First it was to de-fund the police, now MN wants to take control of your children. How many more families and buisnesses will MN cause to leave the state?

KIDS , that is people that are under 21 cannot buy alcohol or cigarettes or get a tattoo but they can get puberty blockers and have their genitals and secondary sex organs removed. Anyone see a conflict there?

Well, #5, didn't you know this: There IS no ice fishing because global warming has destroyed the ice. There IS no acknowledged Lutheran Church because Christians must keep their religion to themselves. The "men in plaid coats" have now identified as women and their plaid coats are signs of privilege and therefore are prohibited. And people who eat fried fish have a 48% higher risk of heart failure so fish frys cause death. And that's before we even start talking about the indiscriminate capture of our fish friends, or helping those with special needs who suffer from ichthyology. /s

Can we stop calling this butchery “gender affirming care”? It’s evil to the core. Kids and even adults outgrow these urges, for the most part, if given enough time for brains to mature. Sheer evil and I hope Minnesota has better sense than to cave to the butchers of children, although it appears right now that they do not.

If you are a heterosexual white person of either sex and resident of Minnesota, I strongly suggest that you move elsewhere, post haste. And perhaps not to Wisconsin, either. Otherwise, be prepared to have your children taken away and sacrificed on the altar of transsexual degeneracy, led by the likes of the demonic, driven ideologue currently orchestrating this debauchery named "Leigh Finke," a mentally ill biological male who submitted to surgical and chemical castration in order to cater to his kinky autogynephilic pathology. He wants to turn all the normal children he can into willing sex slaves upon whom he can freely indulge his predation. Woe to those who have facilitated his degeneracy in the name of "diversity, equity, inclusion." A sane society would shun, shame and if necessary cull such mentally ill predators, but we have now decided to praise and elevate them into positions of influence and power. We are doomed.

1. Facilitating minors to cross state lines without parental permission is probably a federal law violation. But, then again look at who is not enforcing federal law. 2. Someone has to study and report who is making all the money for all the "trans" medical procedures. Follow the money.

Evil never rests. Republicans needs to take a page out of their book, start coming out with bills declaring transgenderism and anything other than heterosexual sexual orientation mental illnesses. Demand hospitals and doctors treat them as such or loose funding, and threaten to take children away from parents who don't consent to having their children suffering with these mental illnesses treated.

New York Post opinion writer Miranda DeVine on Monday criticized former President Donald Trump for dwelling on past grievances instead of offering better solutions to problems the United States faces. "What Donald Trump ought to be doing, that is putting forward a vision for the future not complaining endlessly about the past," DeVine told FOX News host Laura Ingraham. "I think the fact that he spent so much of that interview talking about his current issues with [Manhattan DA] Alvin Bragg I think was a waste as well.

The most recent shout-down debacle at Stanford’s law school, one of many such recent sordid episodes, prompts the question: “Who owns our universities?” The law students who are in residence for three years apparently assume they embody the university. And so, they believe they represent and speak for a score of diverse Stanford interests when they shout down federal Judge Kyle Duncan, as if he were an intruder into their own woke private domain. After all, Stanford, like most of the Ivy League universities, is a private institution. Are then its board of trustees, its faculty, its students, and its administration de facto overseers and owners? Not really.

President Joe Biden's job approval rating has fallen to 38% in a new poll from the Associated Press and the National Opinion Research Center — close to his lowest rating ever in that poll. Just last month, Biden's rating was 45%, which was as high as it has been since his rating began a long slide a few months after he took office. What's going on? The economy. In the month since Biden's previous, higher rating, people have become deeply concerned about the safety of the banking system. They have renewed worries about inflation. They are concerned about some difficult-to-understand maladies affecting world economic stability.

For years, President Biden has maintained a Sgt. Schultz defense ("I know nothing, nothing!") to counter allegations that his family has profiteered on influence peddling with foreign countries and companies. Despite mounting evidence to the contrary, Biden maintains that he "knows nothing, nothing" about son Hunter Biden's business deals. He recently doubled down on this defense by even denying that family members received money from foreign sources. He repeated his denial even after the release of financial transfer reports from his own administration showing millions transferred from China. Now, emails have emerged that show that Biden personally helped draft responses to the controversial deals in 2015

The banking crisis is like a brick thrown into our economic pond. Busted banks don’t just sink silently to the bottom, never to be heard of again. Their plunge sends ripples out across the entire surface that wash into every financial inlet of our lives. If you think this has nothing to do with you because you didn’t invest in Silicon Valley Bank or keep an account there, think again. The spreading circles of its demise will splash you if you merely feel the pinch of high interest rates or buy groceries. Thanks, President Joe Biden! Why? Because his policies are to blame.
Republicans blast Biden response to American

Republican lawmakers on Friday lambasted President Biden for his response to the death of an American in Syria, arguing that he's showing weakness and failing to deter America's adversaries. The criticism came one day after Biden ordered the U.S. military to carry out retaliatory airstrikes in Syria, where Iranian forces had killed a U.S. contractor and wounded six other Americans in a drone strike. The U.S. launches reportedly killed eight Iranians. Iranian-backed proxy forces then proceeded to carry out their own retaliatory strikes on Friday, launching rockets that targeted a U.S. base in northeast Syria. There are no U.S. casualties and no damage to the base, according to first assessments.

Way back in the mid-1980s, communist Yugoslavia exported the Yugo, a compact car that sold for around $4,000. It was so poorly made that bumping into a pole at 5 mph could total it. Fast forward to today, and a new class of cars has a similar problem. A minor accident can cause a total loss, even if the car’s been driven only a few miles. The only difference is that these cars aren’t cheap imports from some godforsaken socialist state. These are state-of-art electric vehicles that come with an average sticker price of $55,000. Why are insurance companies totaling low-mileage EVs that have been in a fender bender?
