“Texas’ top attorney warns Target bathroom policy could lead to ‘inappropriate activity’

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has set his sights on Target Corp. over the store’s inclusive restroom policy. It is the latest indication that Texas’ top political leaders are willing to risk business over so-called “bathroom bills” that have sparked economic backlash in other states. It also comes after Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said in April he would support a law in the 2017 legislative session to define who could and could not use gender-segregated bathrooms in Texas.

In a letter to Target CEO Brian Cornell that was published by Fox News, Paxton protested the store’s April 19 decision to allow its customers to use whichever bathroom or fitting room “corresponds with their gender identity.” Paxton said Target’s policy could lead to “illegal or inappropriate activity” and that the Texas Legislature might take up the issue in the future.

“As chief lawyer and law enforcement officer for the State of Texas, I ask that you provide the full text of Target’s safety policies regarding the protection of women and children from those who would use the cover of Target’s restroom policy for nefarious purposes,” Paxton wrote.

Target’s decision was made in response to North Carolina’s controversial House Bill 2, approved in March. The bill replaced all of North Carolina’s locally instituted non-discrimination laws and restricted the use of gender-segregated public bathrooms to whatever gender people have on their birth certificates.

The adoption of HB2 sparked a social and economic backlash in North Carolina. Corporate expansions have been called off, music and entertainment events have been cancelled and the National Basketball Association has threatened to move its 2017 All-Star Game out of Charlotte unless law is changed. The U.S. Justice Department on Wednesday told North Carolina the bill violates the Civil Rights Act and could jeopardize millions in federal funding for the state’s schools.”

    HAS HE “FUNDALMENTALLY CHANGED” AMERICA ?

    This morning, I read in the local newspaper where the Department of Justice has sent Governor McCroy a letter giving him till Monday morning to repeal HB2 or the state will lose all federal money that supports education ! The DOJ says they are in violation of the ‘Civil Rights Act and Title IX’ by refusing to repeal House Bill 2…..better know in North Carolina as the “One Size Fits All Bathroom Bill”

    The implications of the injection of the federal DOJ, at Obama’s orders, has taken this LGBT agenda to a higher level….that level now says, if the LGBT organizations do not get their way on all issues they present, the United States government will withhold all funding to that state.

    I wonder if everyone really understands exactly what this means.

    In plain simple language, it means that EVERY state in the union, EVERY university within every state, EVERY public school, from kindergarten thru high school, EVERY child in those schools, EVERY state government building and EVERYONE with those buildings, EVERY company doing business with the public, and EVERY religious denomination within America and every Christian must now use ONE RESTROOM…..or allow the LGBT community to pick and choose their choice.

    THIS WILL HAVE AN OVERWHELMING IMPACT ON EVERY ASPECT OF EVERY PERSON’S LIFE WHO LIVES IN THE UNITED STATES IF THE DOJ THREAT IS CARRIED OUT TO THE FULLEST.

    Today, the Charlotte Observer had a big article about the federal intervention into this matter. Of courser everyone had something to say about it….well almost everyone…. Everyone except the woman who started this “Potty Crap” to begin with….mayor Jennifer Roberts said, “No Comment” !

    NOW WHY WOULD THE ‘LESS THAN 20WATT’ WOMAN WHO STARTED ALL THIS “HULLABALLOO” NOT BE PROUDLY BEATING HER CHEST SAYING, “LOOK WHAT I HAVE BROUGHT UPON THE GOOD PEOPLE OF AMERICA” ?

    Now can you imagine the woman who paid back an LGBT promise to the local LGBT group that if they helped her get elected as mayor, she would help them push the “gay rights” agenda in Charlotte….that bathroom bill has grown from a mole hill into a national mountain that perhaps will be named in the future, ‘Roberts Retreat’…..her actions in the first place should have been to place such an issue on the ballot and let the people of charlotte vote on it. that would have been the proper democratic way…but no, she crammed it down the throats of her city council members and expected the good people of charlotte to accept it as ‘gospel’.

    Then the state lawmakers in Raleigh, acting on the wishes of the people of North Carolina overwhelmingly passed a bill nullifying Mayor Roberts unethical decision supporting the LGBT community of Charlotte.

    The LGBT people are backed by and receive support from the national gay rights organizations and in particular HRS, who is pushing on a national scale Obama’s “GAY RIGHT’S AGENDA”….

    On April 29, , I wrote an article outlining who is in charge of the HBS, their relationship to Obama and when this all started over 8 years ago. On the steps of the Capitol building, Nancy Pelosi outlined the four point plan that they have been pushing onto the people as a ‘moral issue’ when in fact, it is nothing but a ‘political issue’ to create chaos and stir up trouble…..

    I will take a few lines to review what I wrote on April 29, so the readers can judge for themselves what this Gay Agenda is all about. Here’s what I said then;
    “Pelosi said at a press conference at the U.S. Capitol that promoted HR 3185, known as the Equality Act, legislation that amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to include sex, sexual orientation and gender identity as protected classes from “discrimination or segregation in places of public accommodation.”

    As the first item on the four-point agenda, Pelosi said her party desired a “fully inclusive hate crimes legislation,” and the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. ‘Hate Crimes Prevention Act’ was pushed through in 2009 and signed by President Obama.

    “Outlasting the Gay Revolution” spells out eight principles to help Americans with conservative moral values counter attacks on our freedoms of religion, speech and conscience by homosexual activists

    Secondly, she said, “The next leg of the stool would not have happened without the president’s leadership and courage, and that is the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’” the U.S. military’s policy barring service members from being open about their homosexuality while serving in the armed forces. That policy was repealed by President Obama in 2011 after a federal court judge issued an injunction banning its enforcement.

    Third on the list was same-sex marriage.

    “Another piece of our agenda was to promote marriage equality in our country. Legislatively, we couldn’t really succeed,” Pelosi lamented.

    Rather, she said, U.S. courts and the Supreme Court handed them that “victory” in 2015.

    “But the courts and the rest, and public opinion, of course, in the actual courts and in the court of the public opinion, that victory has been won,” she declare

    Finally, Pelosi said, there’s a fourth goal in the Democrats’ plan.

    “There’s one other piece, which is ENDA [Employment Non-Discrimination Act, precursor to HR 3185], ending discrimination in the workplace, which is really a very important piece of the agenda,” she said. “But as we were seeing the successes and the momentum, especially of the marriage equality, we saw the opportunity to do something bigger.”

    So now you know my friends, this Gay Rights Crap and the LGBT Agenda hasn’t been a MORAL thing at all to the democratic party……it’s been a POLITICAL THING from the start in 2008…… .and it all started when Nancy Pelosi and her democRATS came into power and had the White House to their back creating smooth sailing for their ship of state…..

    Their Gay Rights Political Agenda had 4 point they would push upon the unknowing public starting in 2008…when the Chicago cabal took power and Nancy was riding her high horse as Speaker of the House. Those 4 points were:
    1.The Hater Crimes bill singed into law by Obama in 2009
    2.The military “don’t Ask-Don’t Tell” pushed through by Obama in 2011
    3. The Marriage Equality (same-sex) Act signed into law by Obama in 2015
    4. The ENDA – known as the ‘workplace discrimination’ leg of the agenda.

    Now the fourth part of this evil political agenda that is in play against an unknowing public…..it’s called the ENDA…workplace discrimination that the democrats are hammering home now. That’s what the DOJ is pushing through now. Upon that final leg being approved, their entire agenda will be in place.

    Now a little bit about HBS, its founder, and his relationship to the president WE HAVE TODAY;…this comes from another article I wrote on April 27.

    “Accused pedophile, “Mega-Obama-Bundler” and long-time prominent fixture of the radical left, Terry Bean, is responsible for the bathroom bills sweeping America.

    If not for Bean’s “affluenza,” it is quite likely the 68-year-old would be in prison today for allegedly having sex with a 15-year-old boy in an Oregon hotel room in 2013 with his then-lover Kiah Lawson, who was 25 at the time. As reported at Oregonlive,

    Bean “had offered the boy at least $200,000 to settle the case.”

    Terry Bean is the co-founder of several radical groups posing as civil rights organizations. One of these organizations, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), created the template for the bathroom bill ordinances sweeping the nation.

    ‘HRC’s Project One America is described as “…a comprehensive, multi-year campaign to dramatically expand LGBT equality in the South through permanent campaigns in Mississippi, Alabama and Arkansas.”

    In their state and local advocacy page, HRC writes:

    “HRC is working for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equal rights in all 50 states. Issues affecting the rights of LGBT people in the states range from employment discrimination to relationship recognition”.

    Terry Bean also co-founded the Victory Fund, which “provides financial and campaign support to gay and lesbian political candidates.” Some of their success stories include radical left-wing elected officials Kyrsten Sinema, Mark Pocan, Mark Takano and David Cicilline.

    Houston Mayor Annise Parker, not surprisingly, was also a recipient of their Victory Fund money. I am wondering now if Jennifer Roberts also got some of that gay money.

    Finally, all I have to say is, Jennifer Roberts should be ashamed of herself and I will make a prediction now…’she will never get elected’ to another public post …period.

    And please don’t tell me again it’s a MORAL issue….the records and facts say it’s purely a POLITICAL issue.

    My gut tells me this bathroom crap has something to do with the usurper’s desire to institute Sharia law, and take away a woman’s identity as a female, to relegate them into subservience as less than a man, the same way it’s done in Saudi Arabia, where women are worth 1/2 of a man, and certainly not deserving of their own bathroom.

    EAT MORE CHICKEN-FRIED,BAKED,BROILED, ……NYC WILL LOVE YA

    APPARENTLY NYC MAYOR HAS NO EFFECT ON CITIZENS THERE !

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and other city officials are urging New Yorkers not to eat at Chick- Fil-A. The popular chicken restaurant is planning to open up a new location in Queens, its fourth to open in New York City. But the liberal mayor argued that the owners of Chick fil-A support groups that promote “hate” against gays.

    “Chick-fil-A is anti-LGBT,” he said in a statement, according to the website DNAInfo. “This group imparts a strong anti-LGBT message by forcing their employees and volunteers to adhere to a policy that prohibits same-sex love. It is outrageous that Chick-fil-A is quietly spreading its message of hate by funding these types of organizations.”

    He went on to call for a boycott by New Yorkers.

    “I’m certainly not going to patronize them and I wouldn’t urge any other New Yorker to patronize them. But they do have a legal right,” he said. Chick-fil-A responded by pointing out that it has 80,000 employees of all different backgrounds and beliefs and prefers to focus on its food and service.

    “The Chick-fil-A culture and service tradition in our restaurants is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect — regardless of their beliefs, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender,” a spokesperson said.

    So what happened when Steve Doocy asked some diners at a Manhattan Chick-fil-A about Mayor de Blasio’s remarks? One man, told of the boycott calls by Steve, said he’s on Chick-fil-A’s side.

    “That’s what I’m gonna tell Trump. Keep God first and our kids will be fine,” said Jeff. source

    BOTTOM LINE: ……….. EAT MORE CHICKEN ………………………………..

    Waste, Violations in $25 Mil Program to Fight Climate Change in Guatemala

    MAY 05, 2016

    A $25 million project to help Guatemala combat the ills of climate change is rife with problems that include data errors and discrepancies, no sustainability plan as required by the government and security and funding violations. Though it constitutes an egregious waste of taxpayer dollars, this is par for the course with virtually all of the Obama administration’s “green” ventures, which have largely failed after getting hundreds of millions in federal funds. Among them is a fly-by-night solar panel company (Solyndra) that went under after getting $535 million from the feds and an electric car company (Fisker) that also folded after the government gave it $200 million.

    This one is officially known as Climate Nature and Communities in Guatemala (CNCG) and it’s a tiny slice of the president’s broad and costly initiative to conquer global warming in developing nations. The goal is to conserve Guatemala’s wealth of natural resources and support the country’s efforts to mitigate the impacts of climate change. Since the U.S. launched CNCG in 2013, nearly half of the money allocated has been disbursed to a New York-based nonprofit called Rainforest Alliance that oversees a consortium of environmental, academic and business institutions. This group gets a lot of money from Uncle Sam for its various biodiversity conservation causes and, not surprisingly, there’s lots of waste and mismanagement.

    Hi RM,

    This doesn’t surprise me in fact, I expected something like this from Mayah De Blah Blah.

    His moonbat counterpart, the now-deceased Boston Mayah, Thomas ‘Mumbles’ Menino, pulled the same thing when Chick-Fil-A opened a restaurant in Burlington, MA. Because of his desire to make the entire state more moonbatty than it already is, Mumbles told us all to boycott the chain; it was the first Chick-Fil-A to open in MA.

    Well, some people in this nutty state actually possess a brain of their own, and the line to get into the restaurant on opening day stretched 1/4 mile down the street! So much for Mumbles…

    My comment to De Blah Blah is to stuff it…the chicken, that is; get some mashed potatoes and gravy while you’re at it, and try not to choke on the bones. While you’re at it, order a 125 ounce Slurpee to wash it all down…..oh wait, you banned those, didn’t you….

  11. BTW…Rafael Edward Cruz ..is back at his dirty tricks. He is texting delegates to support him. He is especially working on winning California!
