Good Morning, Gentle Reader. As the Usurper Administration, figureheaded by Joe “Gee your heir smells terrific” Biden, proceeds with its campaign to reduce the U.S. to a Third World banana republic, albeit without the bananas, we have some interesting developments for your perusal. One is massively ironic, a second illustrates the extent to which the Usurpers will go to further their agenda, and the third is of truly global import.
1. The American Civil Liberties Union?
The ACLU of Virginia filed an amicus brief in the Loudoun County Circuit Court on behalf of ACLU Virginia, ACLU, Equality Virginia, Equality Loudoun, Side By Side, and He She Ze and We. The brief, filed on October 13, 2021, is in opposition to an emergency petition and preliminary injunction request filed by the Alliance Defending Freedom on behalf Mr. Cross and his fellow plaintiffs.
Mr. Cross is a teacher in Loudoun County and is challenging Policy 8040. This policy was adopted by the Loudoun County School Board before this lawsuit was filed and provides protections to LGBTQ+ students in Loudoun County schools. The Policy includes provisions requiring teachers to use students’ gender-affirming pronouns, which is crucial to the mental health and well-being of trans and gender-expansive children. Mr. Cross spoke in opposition to Policy 8040 at a school board meeting, and refused to comply with the provision requiring teachers to use gender-affirming pronouns, arguing that this requirement violates his free speech rights. He was subsequently suspended, and he then sued to have his job reinstated. The Court ordered his reinstatement, with the Supreme Court of Virginia upholding this order. The case is now back in Loudoun County Circuit Court, with two added plaintiffs Kimberly Wright and Monica Gill, and is challenging the policy itself. Policy 8040 passed during the time Mr. Cross was challenging his suspension.
While the teachers may disagree with the policy, they do not have the right to violate it in their capacity as K-12 teachers in the Loudoun County school system. The policy protects trans and gender-expansive students from discrimination, and necessitates equal treatment of all students in Loudoun County. We know that discriminatory practices, such as the refusal to use a student’s gender-affirming pronouns, can exacerbate gender dysphoria and harm socio-emotional development during critical childhood years. Policy 8040 ensures that trans and non-binary students can focus on their education without the added stigmatization, stress and anxiety of being misgendered by their teachers.
Some will agree that schoolteachers may be restricted in what they can and cannot say to their students as a condition of employment. After all, on what other basis could parents prevent the teaching of Critical Race Theory? But the salient point here is that this is the very first time the ACLU has ever argued against free expression, whether in a classroom setting or anywhere else.
Does anyone else remember Frank Collin, the American Nazi Party, and the Skokie, Illinois case?
2. Why The Secrecy?
That’s what Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and I would like to know:
Planeloads of underage migrants are being flown secretly into suburban New York in an effort by President Biden’s administration to quietly resettle them across the region, The Post has learned.
The charter flights originate in Texas, where the ongoing border crisis has overwhelmed local immigration officials, and have been underway since at least August, according to sources familiar with the matter.
Last week, The Post saw two planes land at the Westchester County Airport, where most of the passengers who got off appeared to be children and teens, with a small portion appearing to be men in their 20s.
Westchester County cops stood by as the passengers — whose flights arrived at 10:49 p.m. Wednesday and 9:52 p.m. Friday — got off and piled into buses….
On Friday night, one bus left the Westchester airport and barreled down the Hutchinson River Parkway — which is off-limits to commercial vehicles — at speeds greater than 75 mph before crossing the Throgs Neck Bridge….
Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis expressed outrage at The Post’s findings, with a spokeswoman saying: “If the Biden Administration is so confident that their open-border policy is good for our country, why the secrecy?”
“Why is the Biden Administration refusing to share even the most basic information about illegal alien resettlement in communities throughout our state and the entire country?” spokeswoman Christina Pushaw said.
The Great Replacement is an essential component of the Usurpers’ Great Reset. Other components of note are:
- The strangling of America’s energy industry;
- The destruction of the dollar as the world’s reserve currency;
- The use of the Pandemic Panic to force millions out of their jobs and into government dependency;
- The alienation of America’s allies and client states;
- The empowerment of Communist China.
And it is proceeding unchecked and largely unmonitored.
3. Underground Bunker Sales Expected To Increase.
Someone should check whether the Bidens have any stock in bunker-installation companies:
Beijing has mocked America by saying their secret test of a 21,000mph nuclear-capable missile, which orbited the globe before returning to Earth to strike its target, is a ‘new blow to the US’s mentality of strategic superiority over China’.
The jibe follows a report from the Financial Times, which cited five unnamed intelligence sources, said the Chinese military launched the Long March rocket in August carrying a ‘hypersonic glide vehicle’ into low orbit.
It circled the globe before descending towards its target, which is missed by about two dozen miles, in a technological development that would overcome US anti-ballistic missile systems.
The incident caught the US intelligence community by surprise, sources say, as it shows ‘China has made astonishing progress on the development of its hypersonic weapons’.
One person familiar with the test said: ‘We have no idea how they did this.’
They did it with stolen American technology. That’s China’s principal method for “advancing” in engineering of all varieties. But that’s not really news, is it? The news is rather more somber.
The U.S. has long opposed the placement of weaponry in Earth orbit. At this time, the prospects for destroying a warhead coming straight down – the ideal trajectory for any sort of bomb – are slim to none. Existing anti-missile technology is effective in a missile’s launch and cruise phases. Once its payload enters final descent, it’s close to unstoppable. An orbiting delivery system could contrive to put its payloads in as close to a straight-down trajectory as orbital mechanics makes physically possible.
Time was, we would have approximately twenty-five minutes’ warning of an incoming missile bombardment. That’s now down to about five minutes, with a sharply reduced possibility of averting the bombardment altogether.
I think I’ll be calling these folks a bit later.
That’s all for the moment, Gentle Reader. I have a novel to finish, and a cover artist to
hector negotiate with, so I’ll probably be back tomorrow. Until then, be well.
i guess as long as it’s within a 5 min walking (or running) distance
You might remember the planeloads of minors that were flown from Texas to all over the country during the Obama Administration. There was a brief interest in what happened to them when the ACORN thing was in the media, and then nobody followed up.
There was considerable interest in the blogosphere and a few minor media articles at the time, but the usual search engines don’t seem to be indexing much on the subject
