GOP Boosts NIH Funding By $2 Billion; NIH Returns the Favor By Offering Grants for Transgender Studies at $200,000 Per Year, Per Study

Yes, the GOPe was really totally completely ready to start cutting the federal budget, until Trump made a three-month deal on the debt ceiling.

And all the #FakeNewsConservatives on blogs and twitter that have repeatedly called anyone proposing budget cuts "extreme" or "unrealistic" were totally ready to start shredding that budget too.

Anyone think that, when the debt ceiling comes up again in three months, these #FakeNewsConservatives and Paycheck Patriots are going to promote serious budget-cutting plans? Or will they just once again call anyone who proposes a government shutdown as leverage to get cuts an extremist Hobbit wack-a-doo?

Since I've watched twitter, I have seen this #FakeNewsConservative Coffee Clutch repeatedly denigrate and ridicule anyone using the debt ceiling as leverage, and attacking anyone who proposes such a thing as crazy, but now, because Trump followed their lead, they're all claiming to be Budget Warriors ready to risk Congressional seats to bring this federal budget dragon to heel.

Sure. Sure guys. I mean, I've just watched you high-five each other about how stupid and unrealistic and crazy are the people proposing actual cuts, or anyone proposing a government shutdown as a bargaining chip, for like five years straight.

But now you're Born Again Hard Budget Hawks, huh?

Okay. Okay, whatever. I guess when you're a #FakeNewsConservative, you have to take your preening and posturing opportunities where you can find them, because everyone knows when there's an actual live dispute between Democrats and real conservatives, you'll side with the Democrats, every single time.

As you always do, always have done, and always will do.

Anyway, here's some of that GOPe budget-cutting ferocity that Trump short-circuited by agreeing to surrender two weeks before the GOPe and Twitter Conservative SmartSet had "surrender" scheduled in their day-planner:

The National Institutes of Health announced its plans for funding numerous new studies on transgender issues that will cost $200,000 each.

The agency released two announcements Friday that it will soon begin accepting applications for transgender studies to begin next year, on the heels of the Republican-controlled Senate approving a $2 billion spending increase for the agency.

...


Studies may also examine the "biological underpinnings of gender and gender identity," "how estrogen hormone treatments affect the male reproductive tissues," and studies on puberty blockers for adolescents.

...

In the past, studies deemed meritorious by the NIH have included a study seeking to give jailed transwomen "gender affirmation" that has now cost taxpayers $675,715, and a $393,790 studying transwomen in Uganda.

The agency has also awarded $43,576 to a researcher who believes having a "vagina does not equal woman" to study the health status of transgender individuals.

A study to find out why gay men and transgender individuals get syphilis in Peru has now cost $1,082,833. Another NIH grant to research how transwomen use Facebook has cost $351,608.

A recent study is examining whether "gender norms" make LGBTQ people drink, for $438,699.

The NIH funding announcement should not be hindered by[any Republican-imposed] budget constraints. The Republican-controlled Congress is set to increase the NIH's budget by another $2 billion for fiscal year 2018, against the Trump administration's proposal to cut the agency's funding. The agency budget will be raised to $36.1 billion.

Last week, the GOPe showed how eager they were to really take the Democrats on regarding the budget when they flat rejected a one percent cut to the Department of the Interior.

Dozens of House Republicans on Friday voted down language that would have imposed a 1 percent cut on funding for the Department of the Interior, forcing the proposal to fail.

Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., offered up the language as part of a giant spending bill that combines four of the 12 annual appropriations bills. Blackburn often proposes amendment make a small overall cut to various agencies in order to tackle the $20 trillion national debt.But Republican opposition prevented its passage.

68 Republicans voted against it. I await the condemnation of them from the Online TruCon Crying Eagle Brigades.

Oddly enough, none of their #FakeNewsConservative Democrat-curious cheerleaders on blogs or twitter seemed interested in criticizing the GOPe for this.

They have determined that there's no such thing as trans-anything. It's a mental illness and should be treated as such, and the various surgeries do more harm than good.

26 so much of the budget is automatic raises, that it seems already programmed in to have government skyrocket into oblivion, and beyond. A so called "cut" is just a slight slowdown in the rate of increase.

We are programmed for greater socialism every year, and the debt is laid on those precious children. It looks a lot like that is the globalist plan, and playing Santa usually wins more votes. Trump was perhaps the exception, but the GOPe is on board Hillary's "resist" movement. No real cuts ever.

Over 40% and it doesn't go down with treatment. In fact, it's slightly higher when everyone in the person's life knows about it vs. hidden or only close friends family.

113 "The National Institutes of Health announced its plans for funding numerous new studies on transgender issues that will cost $200,000 each."

That crap ends up being snuck through in endless ways.

One of the first things Trump did as president was push through a rescue package for the "Historically Black Colleges and Universities", which claimed to be financially floundering and on the verge of extinction.

That ridiculous chick who was on teevee with him, Obamarama or whatever her name is, put him up to it. (She's officially in charge of "outreach" to blacks and she is herself an HBCU alumna.)

Spelman College is one of the HBCUs thus federally rescued.

So, Spelman cashed the federal checks Trump cut for them and then rededicated themselves to their traditional mission of higher education for blacks, right? As they claimed they were going to do?

Nope. Since the bailout it's been LGBT-OMG-WTF all the time at Spelman. Pedal to the metal. Special new all-gay scholarships, lesbianism lecture series, transgender admissions categories, you name it. That's what the money actually went to.

I actually am curious about this one. Why do they eat too much?

Are they epicureans who can't control their appetites?
Are they unhappy in their lives and overeat to feel better?
Do they simply not care about their maintaining appearance because women are not as visual when it comes to choosing a sex partner?
Is there a genetic component to same sex attraction that also is linked to overeating?

What's going on here?

I am not saying public funds should be used to study this. Not at all. But it is interesting, I think.

134 I could probably design a study on the transgender thing, one that would be scientifically useful.

I would set up a comparison between those who identify as transgender, and people with a body dysmorphic disorder. Through a battery of tests, we could determine if there is any signficant differences between the so-called transgenders, and those who, for example, think one arm is longer than the other.

Looking for differences in behavior and levels of impairment as a result of their problems.

I suspect the NIH doesn't want to know the answers to those questions.

179 This is a carry-over from the last thread, but I think it's kinda important because I thought the comment on it was a bit misleading. And it ties in with this post.

The Belgian Catholic hospitals that are now offering euthanasia are doing so in defiance of the order of Brothers who nominally run them and in defiance of the Vatican. The problem is the hospitals are now mainly controlled by laypeople and they basically ignored the Brother's opposition to euthanasia. The comment accompanying the link made it sound like the Church and Brothers were going along with it.

That's important because I can certainly see that happening with Catholic hospitals here since the presence of clergy involvement with them has deceased and they are run by laypersons. Get "Catholics" like Pelosi and Biden running them and they'll start offering everything from abortion to sex change operations.

238 Some of you mentioned you'd like to get in on the scam.

1) File a freedom of information request for a copy of some of these scam grants. Copies may be available from the grant-writing institution as well.

2) Create a non-profit that is based around your target of your study.

3) Copy the grant adding in some new "parameter" that needs studies which was oh so glaringly missing from all the other studies.

4) Profit.

But, the truth is, as others mentioned, these are just payoffs to leftie outfits. You can't get in on the scam because everyone already knows it's a scam.

Just watching it now on MLB.TV.

The pitch that caused the controversy was borderline, and could have gone either way.

Just saw the pitch that hit the umpire. I think it was pretty clearly unintentional. Farmer had been struggling with his control (he'd just walked the previous batter on four pitches), and this did indeed look like a cross up. It didn't hit the umpire in the face, but on the left collar bone.

274 Farmer's fastball has good glove-side movement, and so if the replacement catcher was expected a curve, which would break the other way, that would explain the umpire getting drilled.

The catcher lunged to catch the ball, and clearly was expecting it to move the other way.

I think the catcher did get a small piece of it, which deflected the ball to the umpire's collar bone.

If you've ever been crossed up you know how difficult it can be to catch the ball that moves in the opposite direction to what you're expecting. It's not so bad if you're looking for a fastball but get a curve, but the way around is hairy. It's why catchers often wear their masks even in warmup (that, and the possibility of a pitch in the dirt).

You know - the kinds of chicks that interstellar super villains find in their entourage and, if they aren't careful, find running the kitchen, the bathroom, and the bedroom. You'll be lucky to end up calling the Rec Room your own.

330 Sorry _ I binged" Tigers pitcher hits umpire" and came up with a completely different story about a Tiger pitcher hitting an ump in the nuts while tossing warm up pitches.


In both cases it looks like it was unintentional, but umps might start getting a bit nervous about working a Tigers game....

337 OT smorgasbord:

Why is it that a "GOP House" - for the Nth cycle in a row - could not produce 12 appropriations bills in regular order, which would restore the power of the presidential veto, and enable the normal targeting of key opponents (and GOP members) who oppose public priorities? (where have our apologists with zero Hill experience and contacts gone to explain all this away?)

Does anyone think that *anyone* in Sessions' orbit realizes the gravity of the rebellion going on - and growing - with state and municipal lawlessness ("sanctuary" nonsense)? Has taking effective counter-measures even crossed their minds?

WTF with McMaster? If even the gist of multiple reports/claims/rumors is correct, he comes off as a lightweight - not unusual for military brass, outside their area of expertise. What's bizarre is that there seems to be "CentCom effect" whereby brass with time in that AO end up being opposed to the positions of our key allies there. You would spend a long time searching the military or political leaderships of Arab client states who would do anything but scream in disbelief at McMaster's reported views on the (stupid but clarifying) argument over "radical Islamic terrorism" and you'd never find anybody who could comprehend NOT regarding Hezbollah as a terrorist outfit (more importantly, simply a proxy weapon of Iran).

339 I saw this with the border fence/wall also.

#NeverTrump types braying how we need some sort of barrier on the Mexican border.

and when Trump proposes one (regardless if it ever gets built. that's another story), they did a heel turn and say that No, a border wall would be cost prohibitive and eminent domain and a bunch of other reasons why a wall. Cant. Be. Built.

340 At some point there has to be a popular vote against the Republicans, even knowing that the resultant Democratic victory will be painful. The Republicans laugh at us because they think we don't dare make that choice. It will be painful, but at least the political dirty work will be done by our enemies instead of our "friends".

341 Napoleon was 5'7 or 5'8, well within the average for France and above average for his native Corsica.

he looks short in portraits with his generals because a lot of them were above average for France. aristocracy / high middle class, etc etc.

343 We know, I think, that everyone in congress goes there in order to start/finish out their political career and get rich.

As a career path in politics, if one was to choose that as a career, every step of the way that politician should be forced by term limits to either move up or get out.

Politics was not meant to be a get rich scheme, is was meant to be public service.

TERM LIMITS!

Just drain the freakin' swamp already.
These people will never stop doing what they've always done.

I bet if they cut funding to NIH, NIH would in turn cut valuable studies and keep this trans nonsense stuff going. Kinda like how the city always cuts the police and fire dept. first when funds get tight.

The tactic actually has a name, it's the "Washington Monument" strategy. They close down the most visible, painful-to-end parts of the government, but keep the BS studies, the bonus checks and the hanger-on's salaries flowing.
