GOP Presidential Candidate Says Trans People Are Imposing Their Lifestyle on Others – by Using Public Facilities

Senator Ted Cruz has actually decided to make the issue of where transgender people pee part of his stump speech and national platform. The GOP presidential candidate has been mocking transgender people and using the issue created by North Carolina’s anti-LGBT law HB2 as a wedge between himself and Donald Trump. Surprisingly, Trump opposes HB2, which bans transgender people from using public restrooms that conform with their gender identity. Cruz, the number two Republican presidential candidate, enthusiastically supports it.

After making nasty “jokes” about Donald Trump dressing up as Hillary Clinton, which as of Friday became part of his stump speech, Sen. Cruz announced on Saturday that transgender women shouldn’t use public restrooms, they should only use their bathrooms at home.

“Every one of us has the right to live our lives as we wish,” the Texas Tea Party Senator told a crowd in Plainsville, Indiana. “If any one of us wants to dress up as a woman or man and wants to live as woman or man and believes that we might be something other than what we were born, God has made each of us with free will and the ability to choose to do that if man to wants to dress as a woman, and live as a woman, and have a bathroom at home.”

Someone in the audience, likely a reporter, asked Cruz to clarify, to confirm that he was saying transgender women shouldn’t be allowed to use public restrooms at all.

“You don’t have a right to intrude upon the rights of others because whether or not a man believes he’s a woman, there are a lot of women who would like to be able to use a public restroom in peace without having a man there,” Cruz responded. “And when there are children involved, you don’t have a right to impose your lifestyle on others.”

Last week staffers at a Cruz rally kicked a 16-year old boy out of the event, because he is transgender.

DONALD TRUMP IS A FASCIST

US Organization Promoting Freedom in Other Countries Issues Warning to America

Published

Freedom House, a U.S government-funded but independent non-profit (NGO) founded in 1941 to promote democracy, advance freedom, and fight fascism around the world on Wednesday found itself facing fascism at home.

First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt was Freedom House’s first co-chair. The organization was “founded on the core conviction that freedom flourishes in democratic nations where governments are accountable to their people; the rule of law prevails; and freedoms of expression, association, and belief, as well as respect for the rights of women, minorities and historically marginalized groups, are guaranteed.”

On Wednesday President Donald Trump refused to commit to the peaceful transition of power, saying, “get rid of the ballots and you’ll have a very trans- — we’ll have a very peaceful — there won’t be a transfer, frankly; there’ll be a continuation.”

Trump’s refusal to commit to a peaceful transfer of power – never before in question since the Declaration of Independence was signed 244 years ago – was by default a threat of violence, as MSNBC’s Chris Hayes said.

Wednesday evening Freedom House issued what amounts to a warning – to its fellow Americans.

“A key tenet of democracy is that politicians respect the electoral process and the will of the people,” Freedom House said via Twitter. “There is nothing more anti-democratic than a leader who refuses to concede defeat.”

‘Trump Is Advocating Civil War’: Reporter Stunned When President Refuses to Commit to Peaceful Transfer of Power

President Donald Trump on Wednesday refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of power, instead sending a message to Democrats to “get rid of the ballots.”

Trump’s remarks were so disturbing the reporter who asked the question called it “the most frightening answer I have ever received to any question I have ever asked.”

Veteran journalist Brian Karem, a political analyst for CNN and the White House correspondent for Playboy, had asked the President the very simple question.

“Well we’re going to have to see what happens,” Trump replied. “I’ve been complaining very strongly about the ballots, the ballots are a disaster.”

“Get ri9d of the ballots and you’ll have – we’ll have a very peaceful – there won’t be a transfer, frankly, there will be a continuation.”

“The ballots are out of control. You know it, and you know who knows it? The Democrats.”

Ballots are how Americans cast their votes, and have been doing so for centuries.

‘I Have to Leave for an Emergency Phone Call’: Trump Splits From His Own Press Conference for a ‘Big Call’

Published

on

President Donald Trump was late for his 6:00 PM press conference and literally left in the middle for an “emergency” phone call.

“I have to leave for an emergency phone call,” Trump told reporters in the White House press briefing room. As he tried to leave one reporter peppered him with spot-on questions about this afternoon’s decision by a grand jury to not charge any of the three Louisville police officers for the killing of Breonna Taylor.

Asked what the call was about, Trump replied, “I have a big call.”
