While only some days ago there were reports circulating about the U.S. Army having issued a new order that would have obliged women soldiers to accept gender-confused, biological men in their showers, bathrooms, etc., it now appears that US. President Donald Trump, having realized that one cannot accomodate the irrational caprices of 0.05% of the population at the expense of sexually harassing everyone else, is finally taking steps to put an end to this nonsense.

The LGBT Agenda is pitched by its ideological supporters as an expansion of civil rights, but it becomes increasingly clear that in reality it provides a tool for spiteful sodomites to harass and vilify their real or perceived opponents. The question is whether that is not the true intention.
The Supreme Court agreed on Monday to hear an appeal from a Colorado baker who disagreed with the notion of same-sex “marriage” who had lost a discrimination case for refusing to create a cake to celebrate such an aberration. Continue reading “US Supreme Court to hear case on sodo-“wedding” cake”
The UN Human Rights Council has adopted a resolution on the elimination of discrimination against women and girls. While there is general consensus that women and girls should not be discriminated against, the problem with such resolutions is that abortion advocates, or governments influenced by them, habitually try to use them as an occasion to promote the notion that legalizing the slaughter of unborn children is a requirement deriving from that consensus. In that context, it is long-awaited good news that the US, which under the Obama Administration was the most aggressive abortion promoter world-wide, has changed its position.

Under President Trump, sanity and justice seem to slowly return into US politics.
Following up on a pledge by President Trump made during his election campaign, federal officials have drafted a provision contained in former President Obama’s “Affordable Care Act” (aka “Obamacare”) that required employers to provide so-called “birth control” coverage in health insurance plans. The provision, which cynically defined contraception (including some methods that objectively must be qualified as chemical abortion) as part of “health care” and thus obliged employers to pay for (some of) their employee’s questionable lifestyle choices, was one of the most controversial in Obama administration policies adopted under the Affordable Care Act, and it generated scores of lawsuits by employers that had conscientious objections to it. Continue reading “US: employers no longer obliged to pay for their employees’ “birth control””
Admittedly, there may be many good reasons to be critical of new US President Trump (as this blog has pointed out already during his election campaign), or of his planned immigration policy. But the true problem of the US is not the President. The problem is the judiciary.
This is from yesterday’s New York Times:
A federal appeals court refused Thursday to reinstate President Trump’s revised travel ban, saying it “drips with religious intolerance, animus and discrimination.” Continue reading “This is how politicised the US judiciary is”
Donald Trump is certainly not perfect, but…
The US President’s recent appointments of ten federal judges of various types – all of them in the mould of Judge Gorsuch – shows once again that the man is serious about the return of sanity in American judicial courts. The number of vacancies is higher than usual, possibly because Obama, having lost control of the Senate, preferred to wait for the November 2016 elections (which the Democrats expected to win rather than lose) rather than appoint decent judges. Trump’s victory and (narrow) majority in the Senate now allows him to help shape the federal courts for decades to come, through the appointment of young judges with impeccable credentials.
This is another example of how important Trump’s unexpected victory was not only for the United States, but for Western Civilisation in general.
With 217-213 votes the House passed a health care bill on Thursday that would repeal and replace major parts of fomer US President Obama’s “Affordable Care Act”. While there is broad consensus in the US on the objective of making health care more affordable, Obamacare was highly controversial because it used “health care” as a pretext for promoting abortion and contraception, making it an obligation for employers, including even faith-based institutions whose professed ethics prohibit such abominations, to finance both.
Today’s vote is an important step forward towards the restoration of liberty of conscience, and a severe blow to the abortion industry. However, the bill still needs to pass a vote in the Senate.
