Let Dr. Oz Tell You All About the Need for Transgender Reassignment Surgery for Young Children

This is the MAGA candidate, I'm reliably informed by Sean Hannity and Ric Grennell and other people.


Yeah I don't see that happening -- I don't see either "man" being game for that.

That interview here. She also mentioned which college she'd been an adjunct professor at.

The new attack on her is that she's "anti-Muslim," and, in fairness, she does say Pam Gellar-like things about Muslims. While she seems to mostly have a problem with political Islam and sharia law, she does not attempt at all to distinguish those from Islam itself, and simply deems Islam itself to be the problem.

Ric Grennell is of course pushing this line:

How do I put this delicately...? Grennell works for Trump and we, collectively, have had to justify a lot of intemperate, un-PC things Trump has said about various categories of people but now we're supposed to all freak out that Kathy Barnette said that Muslims are a threat to the US?

It's a little late to be playing the PC Card isn't it, guys?

Let's be serious.

Here are my three takes on Barnette's Muslim Problem:

1, I think I'll take some anti-Muslim-bias over Captain Gender-Swap over here. Even though he's totally MAGA and completely dedicated to taking down Mitch McConnell and everything. Yes, it's not ideal. But we do not have ideal candidates. (Someone mentioned to me that one of the candidates in the back of the pack is very good but I don't think she's going to suddenly catch fire over the weekend, alas.)

2, We have an entire political class infected with "Islam Means Peace" lies. It will help to have one (1) Senator who holds a different opinion, even if that opinion is a bit overbroad and a bit, yeah, "extreme." It would be nice to have one (1) Senator who says, "Actually, Islam does not mean peace at all."

3, I've sat through six years of black leftist commentators -- who are not only welcomed by the leftist media and academy, but feted -- saying the most egregiously bigoted things about white people, and I've been told by the left that I had to shut up and take my Lecture.

I've also been told by NeverTrump -- particularly leftwing goons like AllahPundit and the leftwing c*nts at The Bulwark he's always linking -- that if I object to the constant screeds about "eradicating whiteness," I'm guilty of "white resentment," "white grievance culture," and being a "culture warrior."

So here we have a black American woman expressing some strident cultural criticism against Muslims -- am I now supposed to say, "Oh, that's beyond the pale! The constant attacks on white people from black leftists were fine and justified, and I'm guilty of borderline racial hostility for just objecting to racism directed at myself, but this single black woman harshly critiquing Muslims must be denounced and cast out of political life!"

Really? Really?!?

Ibram X. Khendi's book on "eradicating whiteness" was until this week recommended reading for US Naval Officers -- but Kathy Barnette is not allowed to say that the actual ideology the US Navy has spent the last two decades at war with is a problem for the US?!?!

Fuck you. Fuck you, fuck you.

Actually, I'll add a fourth point:

4, Even though I have doubts she can win, I'm becoming more zealously in favor of her given these weak, hypocritical attacks on her and I am becoming more and more hostile to the people making these attacks on her.

This is Trump's wounded ego talking, and I am getting very sick of hearing from Trump's wounded ego.

Take the L, Champ. No one wants your Oprah candidate.

BTW, I continue to say, I think Trump's basic play here -- back a candidate who would (maybe) be loyal to him and not Mitch McConnell and the GOPe -- was justifiable. McConnell has been absolutely ruthless and mercenary and cut-throat in selecting senate candidates loyal to the Corporate Party; it's good and right to start picking candidates who oppose it.

But Oz was the wrong candidate to back for this play. He's a liberal, period.

And I don't think a liberal will oppose the Corporate Party. Liberals are the Corporate Party.

Trump already came out with a statement the other day saying that he chose Oz because he thought he could win and wasn't all lined up with McConnell. He said that Barnette seems like a good person but there was too much in her background that needed looking into and that that would hurt her in the general. He said he would support her and work with her if she won.

Yup. The most egregious bigotry - all the way down to "your skin color and genitals mean you were born evil, will behave evilly, will always be evil, and have no chance at redemption because you sprang forth from a tainted gene pool - and all you can do if you want to overcome even a scintilla of your inborn diabolical sinister hate is to cut your dick (or tits) off" - is perfectly acceptable and even encouraged in precisely *one* direction.

Notsothoreau, send them a letter, using the control or recording number of the notice if you still have it. Also put in your last 4 SSN or a PIN number

Ask for a follow up on your 2019 taxes AND a transcript for 2019 & 2020. per the IRS website you can also do it online.
If you mail it in the website says you need to provide your mailing address from your latest return. It should be mailed within 10 days to the address they have on file for you.
These letters are not forwarded if you move so you might want to expend that forever stamp soon.

IRS has a two year period to do an audit, they should be done by now. If you are in or move to a state that has a MOU with the IRS, your state will also audit you within 2 years of the IRS audit (Oregon is bad about that, try getting your return for 2016 reviewed for an audit within 30 days of a letter you get today)
If you move without notifying the IRS they stop sending you letters to your old address and just bide their time. Eventually they figure out where you are and garnish you for back taxes.

62 Islam is more political than it is a religion and that is something we in the west don't understand culturally. We think religion isn't politics. we see a separation. They most certainly do not. Fundamentally, their religion is about temporal power. It is designed for conquest, not of the self, but geopolitics. It may not be the case that all followers of Islam practice in that manner, but its a fundamental part of their religious tenents. Just because moderate muslim exist does not mean Islam isn't what it is. Some catholics support abortion rights. Doesnt mean the Catholic dogma is not what it is, no matter what Nancy Pelosi says.

76 Oz has Trump's endorsement. He was never "the MAGA candidate." So the entire premise of the article is wrong.

MAGA voters will continue to split their votes and help the establishment by either allowing the RINO to win the primary (see, DeWine in Ohio) or put up a candidate who will lose the general (see, Barnett) thus getting the Democrat elected.

The establishment is fine with either.

Meanwhile, down in GA absolutely no attention is being given to the fact that Kemp 100% did fuck MAGA over.

Establishment is a-okay with that too.

On the last post, Ace focused on how they seem to want to destroy anything that gives pleasure to men, but they also seem to be giddy at the idea of these hideous creatures getting the trophy of the SI cover. Like the ugly angry kid getting elected prom queen. Ace is right, but I think it is also about revenge against the attractive women.

91 Grenelle was on with Bannon right before Barnette, and he bragged of being raised Evangelical Christian, then complained that Kathy things it is yuchy to hang around with homosexuals. Well sorry, but that is kinda the Christian view ... it doesn't mean she wants to make them illegal or whatever. And her comments were from many years ago I think, perhaps at her Christian (?) university.

(btw Bannon had another MAGA woman on today, Carla Sands was at 8%, white woman that was ambassador to Finland or something, under Trump. Sands is at the link

96 I don't know, I wouldn't be so sure she "can't win". She's spent zippo and has come from nowhere to be tied with two guys spending MILLIONS.

Why ? Because the other two legitimately suck and anyone who looks honestly, can easily see that. One is a Bush-RINO, the other is a fake conservative kook. The only reason that Trump likely endorsed Oz is because he's a political outsider.

So the thing to do now, is for Trump to accept that Barnette is even more of an outsider than Oz AND she's a 1000% more authentic MAGA conservative than the other two combined.

104 Trump likes to set himself up for win-win situations wherever possible. It's a big ingredient in his success.

So I am guessing that Trump calculated early that Oz was going to win both the primary and likely the general, and decided to endorse to TRY to gain a part-time ally.

If Barnette wins and is everything she says she is then she is Trump's ally by default. This is essentially win-win as much as it can be, except for the fact that it's annoying as shit, pisses his hardcore supporters off, and Oz isn't likely to be much of an ally at all.

But I think that was his thought process, thinking equally that his endorsement would likely not be enough to push her over the top in the general.

Instead, if Barnette wins, they'll give her nothing. And then if she loses, they can say "see, we told you she couldn't win, she's an amateur with a small campaign"

We talked about this here before. She absolutely cannot win. And the reason that she absolutely cannot win is because all of the people who - assuming she loses the primary - will shout that we need to close ranks and support the nominee ... won't.

If they don't get the outcome they want then they will take their toys and go home. Because the outcome they want is a grifter in office. R - D - doesn't much matter as long as the game keeps being played and they get richer off our suffering.

I think Trump's first goal for a hypothetical second Trump administration is a Republican Congress. He won't be able to do anything with a Democratic Congress. He might be able to do something with a Republican Congress.

His second goal is a MAGA Congress. We're in primary season, so he's going as MAGA as he feels like he can (not MAGA everywhere).

I'd be shocked if this other establishment GOP PA candidate won the primary and Trump didn't stump for him. Sure, he's got an ego, but he's also got goals.

------------
Was listening to Robert Barnes today about Barnette. Two important points he makes.

1) She comes across as authentic because her history is showing herself to be authentic and a person coming to grips with her political philosophy. EXACTLY the way so many of us have moved from being all in on bomb Iraq to being very suspicious of foreign wars. It is maturation of thought in a normal person, not someone who has geared their entire life to getting ready to go into politics. Compare to the slick answers of a Cruz or Rubio.

2) After Clinton, political suicide due to sexual activity was taken off the table (no more Gary Hart's). After Trump, political suicide due to past statement is equally off the table. Unelectable in 2022 is NOT the same as in 2012.

And yes, a dedicated Muslim's mindset is different from that of your dedicated Christian or non-religious American. Islam as a religion is different from others. I don't hate Muslims at all (I don't do hatred of whole groups, except maybe commies, and I don't hate them individually), but this is true.

Also, not quoting todays alert: That having been said, absolutely no one will interview her to ask for explanations and will "vet" her by repeating previously exposed lies in the knowledge that some people will never hear about the truth.

I don't know if she'd be good or bad for us but what they're doing is despicable (blow me Grennell - figuratively speaking).

His second goal is a MAGA Congress. We're in primary season, so he's going as MAGA as he feels like he can (not MAGA everywhere).

I'd be shocked if this other establishment GOP PA candidate won the primary and Trump didn't stump for him. Sure, he's got an ego, but he's also got goals.

That's...not how politics works.

A week ago, no one had heard about Barnette. It was an Oz vs. McCormick fight, and it had been for months. He threw his weight behind the guy who isn't a McConnell toady and has a personal connection to him. Suddenly Barnette is the obvious MAGA choice despite being a national name for about five minutes.

He's building a coalition. Coalitions have to balance a lot of stuff across a lot of interests. We may want MAGA in every race, but it's honestly not feasible, not because "only moderates can win in purple states" but because he has to work with and against 51 different establishments while he's trying to take over. Also, if he wants his endorsement to mean anything, his picks need to win a lot. Throwing his name behind a bunch of no-name true believers who all end up losing diminishes his ability to steer the party. Politics is messy and requires a lot of negotiation.

Exactly. She isn't quite ripe as a candidate, but she seems to have passion for America First unlike Dickless Oprah and Miss Lindsey II. The eruption against Barnette means this: she is connecting with the public in a way DO and MLII can't because they are shits. My take is she is in over her head and for a certain type of person that is exactly the right place to be.

Posted by: ace at May 13, 2022 03:25 PM (0G13K)

221 Why is McCormick so awful?

If we want to say its because he's "Mitch's guy", essentially every Republican in the Senate votes for Mitch as their leader, and any GOP Senator from PA will do the same.

It really looks like both Barnette and Oz will lose that seat to the Dems. I at least like the gamble of a Republican black woman, but I still contend she's nuts.

And if the Senate seat gets lost, I'm putting this at Trump's feet. What an idiot to get behind Oz.

222 127 Okay, Horde. I'm confused.

I've been told for two decades by the left that there are no internal differences between men and women.

Now I'm being told by the left that "transgender children" "feel" like the opposite sex on the inside. And that this justifies the mutilation of their bodies.

How is that possible if we are exactly the same on the inside?
_____________

There's some really interesting recent science on the brain that dispels the old "male brain, female brain" stuff. Turns out that, other than size, there's not that much of a difference between the sexes. What's really interesting is how plastic the brain is. It changes constantly, in response to what it's exposed to. One article described how a bundle of dendrites that appeared in what is typically considered to be a "male" composition (i.e. it shows up in the brain scans of men more than women) turned itself into a "female" composition with the application of a mild external stressor.

Pass all the election laws in various states you want along with MAGA candidates that can walk on water and Desantis at the helm. The left controls law enforcement and the military and every other government institution. You can damn well bet the left/deep state will be daring people to come and get em', but I digress......

I hate sounding like a doomer but I don't hear shit on, if by some miracle we won everything in elections, how we'll correct this as if the left/deep state will willingly just cede power peacefully. The left has no problem disobeying and breaking the law no matter what election laws are passed. Most Republicans have no problem looking the other way. They have no problem using and twisting the law against us through lawfare. Unless someone can paint a rational, reasonable, logical picture of a way out of this mess I'm convinced we just might be that screwed. If I'm wrong, I still win.

The Saudis were the problem. Bush should have given them an ultimatum to turn over bin Laden and his ilk. He also should have shut down Muslim immigration and foreign funding of mosques. Could have let the Muslim world know that we would reconsider some things once bin Laden was in our hands. That would have kept it limited.

238 Barnette may very well end up being a superior candidate than Oz.

The thing is that it was a crowded race with two points of concentration. To act as thought Trump's endorsement of Oz was unthinkable is silly. There was logic behind it, and it wasn't 3D logic. It was, "This is a two man race, and the other guy is worse while Oz has some personal loyalty to me."

If Barnett had become a thing a month ago, I'd much more feel like Trump should have considered dropping his endorsement of Oz for her, but this all happened a week before the primary, and it's not because of something Oz did. It's the rise of an alternative few people seem to know anything about.

I honestly don't get the emotion about it.

I do get the emotion about the dishonest attacks, though. Politics is nasty and all, and I get people not wanting to reward those who engage in it, especially when the choices seem to be (seem to be) between a squish and a genuine conservative.

I'm sick of the little Post Modernists. Everything is self-referential; they can't acknowledge that people in the past weren't inherently stupid or evil.

Recently, I joked with a student that "you hoisted yourself on your own petard" and had to explain that it was like "you hung yourself on the rope you set for someone else." He proceeded to freak out that I was suggesting he kill himself. His classmates, luckily, did not support his interpretation.

Literally the same exact things can be said in reverse. Barnette could win -- who knows? She's clearly not a McConnell stooge (as if Trump really cares about that...). And there is much in Oz's background (Turkey, trans kids, Jussie, Oprah, ahem ahem ahem.) that would kill him in the general because a lot of right-leaning voters do not trust him.

344 Grinell's dumb accusation that Barnette would somehow ban a religion (Islam ) is a red herring. Even if that were her intent she would have no backing and no power to do so. The accusation is at best hypothetical.

However, the child transitioning that Oz has been a apologist for is very very real and has happened and is happening.

The current lot we have in the Capitol would ban *Christianity* before they ever banned Islam. Which is yet another reason why the GOP as currently constituted must be either taken over or defeated.

350 I don't believe moderate Muslims exist in the way we'd reckon. You're either observant or apostate. I'm certain a lot of the observants would prefer to be nominals but for the consequences.
Posted by: SloPitch Whiffer at May 13, 2022 03:35 PM (exeWe)

True, but the average Muslim has no intention of engaging in terrorism.
I live in an area in the part of the country heavy with Muslims and most of them are doing well. They have a stake. They own stores and businesses that cater to ALL people. They are not going to ruin it.
Now, I worry about the lazy, shiftless among them--and the ones who get exposed to LEFTWING ideas in OUR colleges.
You mix Leftism and Islam and that's when the trouble starts.

423 An ill-timed team building scheme resulted in several CNN+ staffers receiving gift boxes filled with network-branded gear right after they were fired, according to the Wall Street Journal.

"This is an incredible time to be part of CNN," read one note. "Build relationships and take time to connect with colleagues and learn so that you make the most of your time here."

The boxes included various items, including pens, food containers, a popcorn machine, and headphones, according to people who received the gifts which added insult to injury after hundreds of staffers left jobs elsewhere to be part of the failed streaming service.

_________

The research isn't suggesting there aren't differences between the sexes, just that the differences are not innate, and they're also not fixed. How a person's brain functions is a result of what the brain has been exposed to. The brain is constantly changing itself and laying down new neural pathways as it is exposed to new experiences, new learning, new stresses, etc.

If a little girl is raised by a mother who has a poor sense of direction, and who tells the girl that that's a female thing, and the girl's father takes her brothers camping and teaches them how to find their way around in the woods, but nobody teaches the girl, then the girl is going to grow up with a brain that functions like one that is "typically female" in that it doesn't have the same neural pathways seen in her brothers' "typically male" brains, created as a result of their learning in the woods.

Yes, indeed. Look up the etymology of "petard". The French verb for fart is "pet" and comes from the same roots. La Petomane was a famous French flatulist. Note that was also the name of the governor in Blazing Saddles.

Anyway, hoist with his own petard conjures the image of someone farting so violently he lifts himself off the ground.

In fact, I felt that burnette, oz, and another man-not McCormack, we're all good choices. In fact, I felt that having 4 good candidates probably made Trumps choice more difficult. I assume a deciding factor in Trumps choice was/is electibility, so he chose oz.

Trump is more than a flawed politician, he's an ass. But he's our ass and he's earned more credit than people assuming everything he does is simply ego driven, thoughtless or petty. I laid out the strategic reasons why I think Trump endorsed Oz (earlier) and they make perfect logical sense and have little to do with his flaws.

That said I hope Oz loses in the primary or the general because fuck him and he's too impure for me.

How much data can human DNA hold. From what I've read, and it's hard to find, but the number appears to be around 1.5 gig. Do you really think that's enough data to create, repair, and program a human being? We're missing something, that will probably turn up later. Could it be direct download?

Mock me if you like but the results from that rat study were replicated in other studies.

And so how do retrievers know how to retrieve, and pointers know how to point? How and when do their brains get wired for those specific behaviors, and is it based on some prior experiences or learning by their genetic ancestors that were somehow passed along to them?

629 Some of the behavioral data is transferred from the mother to the child after the hardware has been built.

Easy to check that hypothesis with dogs.

Breed a bunch of female herding dogs with male non-herders, and see if all the puppies are herders, or if there are some retrievers and scent hounds and others in the mix. If Mom is teaching them in-utero, they'll all be herding puppies, right?

Posted by: mikeski at May 13, 2022 04:45 PM (P1f+c)

630 Maybe somehow the data is tied to a genetic marker. The direct download idea just came to me when I was trying to find just how much data could be stored in DNA, and ran across the 1.5 gig number and thought that it seemed too small to do all that it had to do to make functioning high level mammals.
