Illinois House Committee Approves HB 1785 Falsified Birth Certificates
By David E. Smith

This morning, the Illinois House Human Services Committee held a hearing on a highly controversial proposal that would legalize fraud through the alteration of birth certificates by gender-dysphoric persons who wish to have the government reinforce their deceit.
The bill passed on a party line vote: 7 Democrats voted yea, while 4 Republicans voted no.
State Representative Greg Harris (D-Chicago), who represents a segment of Chicago’s gay community, is one of three openly homosexual members of the Illinois General Assembly and an LGBT activist, is once again pushing this deceit, as he did last session.
HB 1785 would amend the Vital Records Act to allow transgender Illinoisans to easily change their gender and name on their birth certificate. According to HB 1785, all that would be needed is for a licensed health care worker or mental health professional to issue a declaration that the gender dysphoric person has undergone “gender transition treatment,” which doesn’t necessarily include surgery.
Take ACTION:  Click HERE to send an email message to your state representative to ask him/her to reject HB 1785 and uphold birth certificates as legal documents.  The state of Illinois has no duty or right to make it easier for men and women who wish they were the opposite sex to falsify their birth certificates.  Ask your lawmaker to vote NO to the Birth Certificate Designation Act, HB 1785.
IFI’s Laurie Higgins‘ rightly pointed out in an article earlier this year:

[I]t’s critical to remember that cross-dressing, hormone-doping, and surgical mutilations do not turn males into females or vice versa. Compassion and a commitment to truth dictate that we must not treat students who take cross-sex hormones as if they are in reality the sex they are not.
And the government should never be required to participate in a science-denying fiction.
It is staggering to see a modern civilization snookered into accepting (or pretending to accept) the science-denying superstition that surgical tinkering and hormone-doping can turn a man into a woman or vice versa. The ordinary men and women behind the curtain promoting this superstition know full well that no human’s sex can change, so they had to invent new language to confuse and deceive…

Please take action today to let your state representative know what you think of this legislation.  The Capitol switchboard number is (217) 782-2000.
Please also note that this bill is cosponsored by State Representatives Kelly Cassidy (D-Chicago), Barbara Flynn Currie (D-Chicago), Will Guzzardi (D-Chicago), Emanuel Chris Welch (D-Westchester), Sam Yingling (D-Round Lake Beach), Cynthia Soto (D-Chicago), La Shawn Ford (D-Chicago), Silvana Tabares (D-Chicago), Ann Williams (D-Chicago), Carol Ammons (D-Champaign), Robyn Gabel (D-Evanston), Litesa Wallace (D-Rockford), Sara Feigenholtz (D-Chicago), Theresa Mah (D-Chicago), Lou Lang (D-Skokie), and Laura Fine (D-Glenview).
Organizations lobbying in favor of this legislation include:  the ACLU of Illinois, Equality Illinois, Trans-Life Center, and Safe Schools Alliance.

There will be apologists for this mutilation as a “Cultural Practice” which must be respected. Garbage! Would we tolerate such mutilation or removal of any other body parts on either male or female children. If an ideology required the chopping off of a finger, hand, or any other extremity, would we sit back and say its cultural & must be respected?

FGM is pure unadulterated misogyny and must be recognized as such by the cringing, weak kneed, collective, “tolerant” Western mind on this particular subject. Period! One horrific example of this act perpetrated on a helpless two year old child by her father here

It is time for the cultures and ideologies engaging in this brutal act to come into the 21st century.

Female Genital Mutilation Triples in United States

The nonpartisan GAO reports to Congress that over half a million women and girls in the United States are now either victims or at risk of this barbaric practice.

BY CounterJihad · @CounterjihadUS | August 2, 2016

The General Accounting Office (GAO) is one of the few allegedly nonpartisan outlets that is generally thought really to be reasonably fair and nonpartisan. Their new report on Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) should be taken seriously as an honest investigation of the scope of the problem.

The CounterJihad is a movement of American citizen-activists dedicated to safeguarding the country from the danger posed by Islamic Supremacists.
@CounterjihadUS

What they find is that cases have tripled since the last time they looked into it. This is due not to an increase of the practice among Americans, they say, but to increased immigration from Muslim nations in Africa.

They also find that, though the practice is a crime in the United States, there have been almost no prosecutions for it. Likewise, the State Department has largely failed to make preventing FGM a priority in its overseas operations.

The Washington Free Beacon reports that this failure compares very badly to similar State Department efforts to spread condoms and birth control.

“U.S. assistance efforts to address FGM/C are limited,” according to the GAO report. “The Department of State (State) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) each had one active standalone project in 2014, and the agencies also undertook some FGM/C-related efforts as components of projects with broader assistance goals.”

The State Department’s only stand-alone effort specifically targeting female genital mutilation is in Guinea, and has only received $1.5 million over 2 years. The amount is less than what Daniel Resnic received from taxpayers for his so-called origami condoms.

In contrast, the U.S. Agency for International Development spent $85.6 million on contraception for developing countries in 2014 alone.

…the government has also not provided funding to a United Nations program dedicated to combating the practice.

“The U.S. government provides funding to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and UNICEF but, to date, has not contributed funds to the UN agencies’ Joint Program on FGM/C…. there are currently no specific legal restrictions that would prohibit U.S. funding provided to UNFPA from being available for the Joint Program on FGM/C,” the GAO said.
FGM is a practice strongly associated with Islam within Africa, although it is also widely practiced in Islamic nations in southeast Asia. Other nations outside of those regions, though Muslim, do not show the same rates of mutilation of women. In Muslim nations that do widely practice FGM the structure of sharia reinforces the practice, as it fits nicely into the religious codes regulating women’s behavior. Like the requirements to veil and sequester themselves in female areas of the home, FGM promotes an ideal of female sexual “purity” that is at the core of Islamic ethics for women.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who suffered FGM as a girl in Africa, has called for annual visual inspections of girls considered “at risk” by a female medical provider. Pointing out that the perpetrators of FGM are often close relatives, she argues that it is unreasonable to expect girls to report such close family and bear the guilt of sending them to prison. “A detection mechanism like this would be the biggest deterrent because when the family says ‘Our little girl Fatima or Samira is now five or six, and shouldn’t we have her done?’ they will know that they can’t because in September every year, just as the school holidays end, she will be checked. You then need one or two prosecutions to set an example.”

The GAO report calls for increased immigration as a solution, as women and girls who are at risk of FGM are entitled to special protections under US law. As the practice is actively illegal in the United States, there is at least a chance that they might be protected by being moved here. However, as Hirsi Ali’s comments anticipated, there are actually very minimal protections in place even in the United States itself. The GAO report found almost no prosecutions related to FGM, and there is no reason to think that there will be more in the future. Absent a detection mechanism, the state remains unaware that the crime has been carried out. Prosecution is impossible if there is no evidence that a crime has occurred.

For that reason, the GAO’s recommendations do not go far enough. Hirsi Ali is correct. At risk populations within the United States should be subject to annual inspections in order to protect them from their families. It is the only way to protect these girls and end the practice at least in America.

Last November, I entered a post entitled Pedophilia–Child Abuse On Steroids.

Since the subject has resurfaced, I am again taking up the cudgels on this atrocity.

Egad!

New York Times Op-Ed Proclaims That Pedophilia Is ‘A Disorder, Not A Crime’

Okay, so you’re trying to figure out what would cause a person to commit such a disgusting and perverted crime – if it’s a mental disorder or something that can be prevented. That’s commendable on a certain level, I suppose.

But WHY is this an either/or scenario? WHY can’t we call it a crime, as well as a mental disorder? (Other than it hurts these special snowflakes FEEEEEELINGS?) WHY are you trying to turn someone’s horrifying actions into scenario where the perpetrator is the victim, rather than, you know, the ACTUAL VICTIM is the victim?

How do you think child victims of pedophilia feel, seeing their attackers being portrayed as these poor, pitiful creatures who had no choice but to turn to child molestation? It’s like “Oh, sorry that happened to you. But we need to UNDERSTAAAAAAAAND why they did that!”  The insanity continues

The Milo flap is an excellent diversion regarding the following:

Why the MSM Is Ignoring Trump’s Sex Trafficking Busts

There have been a staggering 1,500-plus arrests in one short month; compare that to less than 400 sex trafficking-related arrests in 2014 according to the FBI. It’s been clear to me for awhile that Trump would make human trafficking a top priority. On October 8, 2012, Trump tweeted:

“Got to do something about these missing children grabbed by the perverts. Too many incidents – fast trial, death penalty.”

My suspicions were confirmed on Feb. 23 when Trump gave a press conference from the White House addressing how human trafficking is a “dire problem” domestically and internationally…Trump’s press conference was barely a blip in the mainstream media and the massive arrests have been almost completely ignored by the MSM altogether…

As the MSM has ignored these historical arrests, they have zeroed in on casting conservative icon Milo Yiannopoulos as a monster. They claim he supports pedophilia based on comments he made in a video years ago*. The reality is Milo was a victim of child sex abuse, and although he did joke about his abuse in an interview, he in no way promotes pedophilia. The opposite is true, and he addressed this controversy head on in a press conference. Not only is it normal for sex abuse victims to make light of their abuse as a coping mechanism, Milo has personally taken down and exposed pedophiles in his columns over the years. However, the mainstream media and the left ignored this information and demonized Milo. The irony of all this is that the left and MSM have been the biggest proponents of pedophilia.  continue

Just as in Trump’s case with his remarks to Billy Bush, the enemy within dug up an old tape and played it for all it was worth in order to bring Milo down. Remember, they used the same playbook to marginalize Sarah Palin when it was obvious that she was connecting with the voters. The false meme “I can see Russia From My house”, which she never said, became gospel.

Interesting discussion:

Douglas Todd: Pedophilia sets off alarms. Here are the facts

Spotlight. Mystic River. Broadchurch. The Hunt. Eyes Wide Shut. The Girl Next Door. Deliver us From Evil. Pretty Baby. Accused. Happiness. The Boys of St. Vincent. The People Next Door. Game of Thrones. The Celebration. The Woodsman.

These are some of the hundreds of movies and TV series that have revolved around the disturbing subject of child sexual abuse.

Until the 1960s, the molestation of minors was a reality that existed largely under the radar.

But since then the West has become painfully aware of this form of sexual abuse through waves of news reports, including this week’s media storm over the resignation of Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos amid a backlash over comments he made that appeared to condone sex with 13-year-olds.

It turns out what we don’t know about pedophilia could hurt us as a society. We may be missing opportunities to prevent further abuse... continue

Pizza-gate California: 474 Arrested in Massive Child Pedophilia Sting

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has announced 474 pedophiles have been arrested and 55 victims have been rescued in a MASSIVE Southern California Child Trafficking sting dubbed “Operation Reclaim and Rebuild”…

Hundreds of people were arrested and dozens of sexually exploited children and adult victims were rescued across California during a statewide operation to combat human trafficking, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department announced Tuesday.

More than 30 federal, state and local law enforcement agencies and task forces, including the Los Angeles Regional Human Trafficking Task Force, participated in the third annual “Operation Reclaim and Rebuild” enforcement operation, according to a sheriff’s news release. entire post

Head of U. Texas – Pan American Young Democrats is convicted child sex offender

Campus Reform offers a very disturbing report about the background of the head of a prominent student group at one Texas university.

Bill “Billy” Wayne Johnson, who is listed on the school’s official website as the primary contact for the student organization, was registered as a sex offender in April of 2010, according to Texas DPS SEX Offender registry.

According to state records, Johnson was convicted of first degree aggravated sexual assault of a child on April 28, 2003, and spent nearly three years in the Garza West Texas Department of Criminal Justice for the offense, from July 16, 2003 through April 12, 2006.

Sexual Assault of a Child is aggravated if the child is under 14 years of age, if a deadly weapon is used or a serious bodily injury is threatened, according to Texas Penal Code Sec. 22.021.

Those records include multiple photos of Johnson, which match photos on his Facebook and Twitter accounts, and describe him as a 211 pound white male with “BLOND STRAWBERRY” hair who attends UTPA. The arrest report also lists a number of aliases and indicates he was required to register annually. more
