IAAF Finally Admits Women’s Champion Caster Semenya Is Biologically Male and Has to Lower Her Testosterone

By Jim Hoft

South Africa’s Caster Semenya competes in the women’s 800 and 1500 meter races and consistently defeats the women in the race by 3-4 seconds.

Caster is the Olympic champion.

The runner from Pretoria has raised eyebrows due to her stocky, muscular physique and apparently masculine characteristics, including facial hair and a deep voice.

Semenya, in black, is married to a woman. Caster admits his wife thought he was a man when they first met.

Caster Semenya was born intersex. She has both female and male organs and a very high testosterone level.

In May the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) ruled that Caster will need to lower her testosterone levels to compete with women in the future.

After a recent race in Doha, when asked if she would take testosterone-limiting medication, Semenya told Al Jazeera“Hell no.”

She is just fine with her high testosterone levels and thinks it’s fair for her to compete with women.

Now this…
The IAAF ruled in court that Caster Semenya is a biological male.

The Daily Caller reported:

Women’s Olympic champion Caster Semenya is a biological male, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), the world’s largest sports governing body, argued in court.

Semenya, the South African runner who dominated the female competition in the women’s 800M at the 2016 London Olympics, is fighting an IAAF requirement that biologically male runners suppress their testosterone below a certain level in order to compete in female events.

Media reporting on the subject has often left out the fact that the IAAF’s rule only applies to runners with male chromosomes rather than female runners with high testosterone levels.

The IAAF called the requirement “an extremely progressive compromise” between protecting the integrity of women’s sports and accommodating “certain biologically male athletes with female gender identities” like Semenya who want to compete in women’s sports, the court documents show…

…Semenya’s case, the IAAF reiterated, “is not about biological females and how their bodies respond to testosterone; it is about biological males with 5-ARD (and other [male sexual development disorders]), how their bodies respond to testosterone, and the performance advantages of that response when they compete against biological females.”

Athletes with 5-ARD are “biologically indistinguishable… in all relevant aspects” from typical male athletes, with the only major difference being the “size and shape of their external genitals,” the IAAF argued.

 

Josh Hawley Moves to End Immunity Privileges for Big Tech Monopolies Unless They Protect Free Speech

The freshman Senator from Missouri is taking action to protect digital freedom.

By Shane Trejo

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has emerged as the leading reformer against social media censorship, as he is going after their special immunity privileges under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.

As it states right now, Section 230 states that “no provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.”

Howley’s bill, the Ending Support for Internet Censorship Act, would remove that exemption for Big Tech firms if they act like publishers instead of neutral platforms. Corporations would have to comply with external audits proving their algorithms and content moderation are not biased.

“With Section 230, tech companies get a sweetheart deal that no other industry enjoys: complete exemption from traditional publisher liability in exchange for providing a forum free of political censorship,” Hawley said in a statement. “Unfortunately, and unsurprisingly, big tech has failed to hold up its end of the bargain.”

“There’s a growing list of evidence that shows big tech companies making editorial decisions to censor viewpoints they disagree with,” Hawley added. “Even worse, the entire process is shrouded in secrecy because these companies refuse to make their protocols public. This legislation simply states that if the tech giants want to keep their government-granted immunity, they must bring transparency and accountability to their editorial processes and prove that they don’t discriminate.”

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), the left-leaning civil liberties organization, warns against changing the regulations.

“Though there are important exceptions for certain criminal and intellectual property-based claims, CDA 230 creates a broad protection that has allowed innovation and free speech online to flourish,” the EFF added on their website.

“This legal and policy framework has allowed for YouTube and Vimeo users to upload their own videos, Amazon and Yelp to offer countless user reviews, craigslist to host classified ads, and Facebook and Twitter to offer social networking to hundreds of millions of Internet users,” they added.

“Senator Hawley’s misguided legislation sets the table for stricter government control over free expression online,” Americans for Prosperity Policy Analyst Billy Easley said in a statement.

“Eroding the crucial protections that exist under Section 230 creates a scenario where government has the ability to police your speech and determine what you can or cannot say online,” Easley added.

ECommerce trade group NetChoice opposes the legislation because they admit that it would restrict the ability of tech giants to censor.

“This bill prevents social media websites from removing dangerous and hateful content, since that could make them liable for lawsuits over any user’s posting” said Carl Szabo, who works as General Counsel at NetChoice, in a statement. “Sen. Hawley’s bill creates an internet where content from the KKK would display alongside our family photos and cat videos.”

Hawley isn’t phased by the critics, and continues to put Big Tech in his crosshairs.

Michael Moore Asks the Left: ‘Are You Ready’ to Take On Trump’s ‘Insane Base’

By Hannah Bleau

Far-left documentary filmmaker Michael Moore informed his 6 million Twitter followers Wednesday that he watched President Trump’s reelection speech and asked fellow resisters if they are ready to take on Trump’s “fired-up insane base.”

The Fahrenheit 11/9 filmmaker told his followers that he watched Trump’s reelection speech in its entirety in order to get a good look at the “enormity of the fight ahead.” Michael Moore was seemingly incensed by President Trump’s massive crowd of supporters.

“He hasn’t lost one inch of his fired-up insane base,” Moore said.

Moore’s devotion to “plugging in” and paying attention seems to be a recent development. Contrast his newfound position with the warning he issued prior to President Trump’s State of the Union Address in January.

At the time, Moore urged networks to refrain from playing the president’s address.

“You MUST NOT give free air time 2 a known liar,” he warned in a January 8 tweet. “This is a man you have told us lies to us an average of 10 lies a day.”

“If you do go ahead and give Trump this free, prime time airtime tonight, then I implore you to run on the screen a real-time LIVE fact-check for every sentence he utters,” he continued. “You owe this to your viewers.”

The Oscar-winner also warned that Trump’s State of the Union address was “all part of the plan” to start a coup.

In February, Moore urged Democrats to refrain from taking moderate positions and declared “middle ground” as good as gone.

“If you’re being moderate, stop being moderate. Take a position,” Moore said during an appearance on MSNBC. “There’s no middle ground anymore. There’s no halfway point to should somebody be paid a living wage.”

“You know, on the issue of choice, there is no halfway there. You’re either for it or you’re against it,” he continued. “Do you believe in equal rights for women? Do you believe we should have an Equal Rights Amendment? There’s no middle ground. There’s no time for moderation.”

Moore and Avengers star Mark Ruffalo are reportedly planning strategies “for the 2020 blue deluge.”

YOUTUBE DELETES CHANNEL OF SPAIN’S POPULIST VOX PARTY

YouTube Deletes Channel of Spain's Populist Vox Party

“Serious attack on freedom of expression”

JUNE 19, 2019

YouTube has deleted the populist Spanish Vox Party’s entire channel in yet another example of the Google-owned platform targeting right of center political content.

“Spain’s far-right Vox party @vox_es has demanded an explanation from @YouTube as to why their account has been closed or suspended ‘without any explanation’,” reported the Spain in English Twitter account.

CAP

The party itself then tweeted, “The decision to remove the channel is a serious attack on the freedom of expression and dissemination of a political party.”

CAP

It subsequently emerged that the deletion of the channel likely came as a result of simultaneous copyright claims made by leftists.

“YouTube has informed us that the disabling of the VOX channel is due to the complaint made by three people who believe that we have used content of theirs,” the party later tweeted, blaming “left-wing activists” for coordinating the takedown.

The party said that other political parties had used the same audiovisual content without being hit by copyright strikes.

“We call on these platforms, who claim to fight online abuse, to pursue groups of progressive trolls who report in an organized manner and for ideological reasons to all those accounts that do not conform to their unique thinking,” the party tweeted.

CAP

The Vox Party has 24 seats in the Spanish parliament having obtained over 10% of the vote in the country’s national election earlier this year. The party also has 3 seats in the European parliament.

As we previously reported, just days before the Spanish election in April, Facebook removed numerous large pro-Vox pages which had a combined reach of millions at the request of Avaaz, a left-wing NGO which is funded by George Soros.

Earlier this month, YouTube caved to a wave of contrived mob outrage (coincidentally led by another “Vox” – the left-wing media outlet) and announced it was imposing a major crackdown on “hate speech”.

Reparations ‘By Any Means’ Group Connected to Nation of Islam, New Black Panther Party

An organization protesting using seemingly violent slogans is associated with the Nation of Islam, New Black Panther Party, and Black Lawyers for Justice.

By Tom Pappert

Big League Politics can report that Black Empowerment, the group photographed holding signs demanding slavery reparations “by any means” and seeming to threaten “an eye for an eye and a life for a life”, is connected to the Nation of Islam, the New Black Panther Party, and Black Lawyers For Justice.

On Black Empowerment’s website, most of its promotional materials contain the logos of the three radical groups, including on its poster advertising the slavery reparations protest.

Next to Black Empowerment’s logo on the promotional poster for the event is the logo for the Black Lawyers for Justice, a radical law firm that represented Khalid Abdul Muhammad, a radical black nationalist who called Jews “blood suckers” and the Pope a “no-good cracker”. Muhammad repeatedly denigrated Jews, Catholics, and homosexuals, and was condemned by resolutions in the House and Senate. Muhammad was considered so radical he was disavowed by Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam, prompting Muhammad to become involved in the New Black Panther Party.

Interestingly, the founder of Black Lawyers for Justice is Malik Zulu Shabazz, who also lead the New Black Panther Party until 2013.

To the right of the Black Lawyers for Justice logo is the New Black Panther Party logo. The New Black Panther Party, though no longer led by Shabazz, previously used the term “a life for a life” when offering a $10,000 bounty for the citizens arrest of George Zimmerman in 2010. Party members were also accused of participating in voter intimidation and shouting racial epithets outside polling stations in 2008.

Additionally, Micah Xavier Johnson, who ambushed and shot multiple police officers in Dallas in 2016, had liked several New Black Panther Party social media presences and engaged with their content.

The Nation of Islam, a radical black nationalist organization that shares a similar ideology to neo-Nazi organizations, is seen on the bottom right corner of the poster. The Nation of Islam and its leader, Farrakhan, have repeatedly made anti-Semitic comments, with Farrakhan comparing Jews to “termites” during a public speech last year. Farrakhan has also previously praised Adolf Hitler, calling the dictator “a very fine man.”

Interestingly, Shabazz, The New Black Panther Party, and the Nation of Islam are all supposed to be separate groups with their own goals. In fact, the New Black Panther Party started after a schism with the Nation of Islam over Muhammad’s horrifically anti-Semitic, anti-Catholic, and homophobic comments, yet all three were essentially listed as sponsors of this protest group.

It should also be noted that multiple Hollywood celebrities and various Democrat presidential candidates are all calling for slavery reparations, while apparently ignoring the anti-Semitic protesters joining in their call using slogans that seem to have strikingly violent undertones.

Big League Politics contacted Black Empowerment for comment on its seemingly violent slogans and did not receive a response.

 

Biden Cites Two Pro-Segregation Democrats As Examples Of Civility

Democratic U.S. presidential hopeful and former Vice President Joe Biden addresses the Moral Action Congress of the Poor People's Campaign June 17, 2019 at Trinity Washington University in Washington, DC.

“At least there was some civility. We got things done.”

By James Barrett

At a fundraising event at the Carlyle Hotel in New York City Tuesday night, current Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden lamented the loss of civility in politics and, as a positive example from his decades-long experience on Capitol Hill, cited his work with two staunchly anti-desegregation Democratic senators, inadvertently highlighting his own party’s history in enforcing racist policies.

The former vice president made the reference while addressing criticism that he is too “old fashioned” for the “New Left.” In his defense of his bipartisan, “consensus”-building approach to politics, Biden “invoked two Southern segregationist senators by name as he fondly recalled the ‘civility’ of the Senate in the 1970s and 1980s,” The New York Times reports.

“At the event, Mr. Biden noted that he served with the late Senators James O. Eastland of Mississippi and Herman Talmadge of Georgia, both Democrats who were staunch opponents of desegregation,” the Times reports. “Mr. Eastland was the powerful chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee when Mr. Biden entered the chamber in 1973.”

“I was in a caucus with James O. Eastland,” said Biden. “He never called me ‘boy,’ he always called me ‘son.'” (The Times notes that a pool report says Biden briefly imitated a southern accent when he delivered the line.)

Talmadge, said Biden, was “one of the meanest guys I ever knew, you go down the list of all these guys.”

“Well guess what?” he said. “At least there was some civility. We got things done. We didn’t agree on much of anything. We got things done. We got it finished.”

Biden then attempted to drive home his point: “But today you look at the other side and you’re the enemy. Not the opposition, the enemy,” he said. “We don’t talk to each other anymore.”

Biden, 76, has found himself under fire for his calls for a return to bipartisanship from the current, more radical iteration of the Democratic Party, which repeatedly rejects compromise and vilifies Republicans. Biden argued Tuesday that the inability to achieve “consensus in our system” only “encourages and demands the abuse of power by a president.”

Biden’s reference to two anti-desegregation Democrats is a reminder of his party’s racist history, as highlighted by National Review in a 2015 piece calling out the left’s attempts to “whitewash” the party’s record. In 1956, 99 Democrats in Congress signed the “Southern Manifesto,” which “declared the signatories’ opposition to the Supreme Court’s decision in Brown v. Board of Education and their commitment to segregation forever.” Two Republicans signed it. A far higher percentage of Republicans in the House supported the Civil Rights Act of 1964 than Democrats — 80% compared to 61% — while 80% of Republicans in the Senate supported it, compared to 69% of Democrats.

“The Democrats have been sedulously rewriting history for decades,” writes Mona Charen for National Review. “Their preferred version pretends that all the Democratic racists and segregationists left their party and became Republicans starting in the 1960s. How convenient. If it were true that the South began to turn Republican due to Lyndon Johnson’s passage of the Civil Rights Act, you would expect that the Deep South, the states most associated with racism, would have been the first to move. That’s not what happened. The first southern states to trend Republican were on the periphery: North Carolina, Virginia, Texas, Tennessee, and Florida. (George Wallace lost these voters in his 1968 bid.) The voters who first migrated to the Republican party were suburban, prosperous New South types. The more Republican the South has become, the less racist.”

Vanderbilt’s Carol Swain has also addressed this “whitewashing” of the Democratic Party in a recent video for PragerU:

DON LEMON INVOKES HITLER WHILE DISCUSSING MEDIA’S ROLE IN COVERING TRUMP

Don Lemon Invokes Hitler While Discussing Media's Role in Covering Trump

CNN hack’s comments too extreme for Chris Cuomo

JUNE 19, 2019

CNN anchor Don Lemon made what he himself described as a “extreme” comparison between President Trump and Adolf Hitler while arguing that such “bad people” shouldn’t be given a platform.

During their nightly hand-off, his primetime colleague Chris Cuomo began by describing 2020 as the most “definitional” election in his lifetime. Lemon appeared to attempt to shame Trump supporters, and asked them if they will “continue to fall for the o-ke-doke.” But then he questioned the media’s responsibilities in covering Trump’s candidacy.

The “CNN Tonight” anchor urged Cuomo to “think about the most despicable people in history” and warned him that he was going to use an “extreme example.”

ICE RELEASES LIST OF MURDERERS AND RAPISTS PROTECTED UNDER SANCTUARY CITY POLICIES

ICE Releases List Of Murderers And Rapists Protected Under Sanctuary City Policies

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released a list of criminal illegal aliens who were released from jail due to sanctuary city policies, many of whom went on to commit other crimes

By Jason Hopkins

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released a list of criminal illegal aliens who were released from jail due to sanctuary city policies, many of whom went on to commit other crimes.

Washington and Oregon, two states under Democratic Party control, have enacted some of the strongest sanctuary laws in the country that protect illegal immigrants from federal apprehension. Washington Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee signed legislation in May that prohibits local jails and state prisons from honoring ICE detainers, and bars them notifying ICE when a suspected illegal immigrant is about to be released from their custody.

The newly minted law puts Washington on par with Oregon and California in terms of the level of restriction placed against federal immigration authorities. Federal law enforcement officials argue that their job becomes much more difficult with these laws, and communities are put in more danger.

“There is an inherent increase in risk to personnel and bystanders when ICE officers and agents must go out into the community to proactively locate these previously detained criminal aliens,” read a press release from the agency. “ICE commends our local law enforcement colleagues who work to minimize that risk by cooperating with ICE to apprehend criminal aliens at the time of their release from local custody.”

In a bid to show the horrific consequences of sanctuary laws, ICE on Monday released details of some of the criminals in Washington and Oregon custody who went on to evade ICE apprehension.

Rosalio Ramos-Romas, a Honduran national, was deported from the U.S. four times before his arrest in Washington in October 2017. However, after local authorities failed to hand him over to ICE, he was then charged in January 2018 of stabbing his cousin to death, decapitating the body, and then attempting to hide the remains in a dumpster.

A county jail in Kent, Washington, did not honor a January 2014 retainer placed on Jorge Luis Romero-Arriaga, a Honduran living illegally in the U.S., despite being held on a charge of child rape. Local authorities instead released him into the community pending the results of his case. Romero-Arriaga was subsequently convicted in August 2015, according to ICE, and deported from the country.

The list went to describe other examples of illegal immigrants in Washington and Oregon committing murder after local jails ignored an ICE detainer and released them into the public. In another instances, a Washington county jail refused to honor an ICE request, despite that individual already having been convicted of rape in the state. (RELATED: Mexico Braces For Sudden Influx Of Illegal Immigrants Under Trump Deal)

Oregon Republicans, long a minority in their state, have grown frustrated over Democratic support for sanctuary policies.

“Oregon Democrats are more interested in political games, at the expense of real lives, than they are at upholding the rule of law,” Jonathan Lockwood, a Republican spokesman at the Oregon Legislature, said in a statement to The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Gov. Kate Brown is endangering Oregonians on virtually every level and has no business being in the governor’s office.”

ICE argues that not cooperating with their agents puts the community at a greater risk of danger.

“When local law enforcement decides to uphold sanctuary policies and release illegal criminal aliens without notifying ICE, it is a decision to protect and release criminals who are preying on victims in our communities. By allowing criminal aliens, particularly those with egregious criminal records, to be released it places everyone in potential danger,” said Bryan Wilcox, an acting field operations director for ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations.
