Case of Transgender Teen “Emancipated” from Mother Appealed to Supreme Court

The case of Anmarie Calgaro involving her son who was emancipated by several entities in the state of Minnesota without any due process for the mother has now been appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. Here is her statement as she filed the original suit: My name is Anmarie Calgaro. Last year, without my knowledge or consent, without any court hearings or legal process, without any involvement on my part whatsoever, a legal aid group that gives free services to low income people created a “Notice of Emancipation” for my 15-year-old son. Suddenly, my son, without any notice to me,

Castro Pushes Illogical “Reproductive Justice” at 2020 Debate

While the 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls are each rushing to be the most pro-abortion candidate in the running for their party’s nomination, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro has taken it a step further, calling for “reproductive justice” in the first televised debate. This ideology was stressed in his answer to a question asked by debate moderator Lester Holt:  Holt: Secretary Castro, this one is for you. All of you on stage support a woman’s right to an abortion. You all support some version of a government health-care option. Would your plan cover abortion, Mr. Secretary? Castro:

Is the Ky. Governor’s Race the Most Important 2019 Election?

As we get closer to Election Day 2019, an important race to pay attention to for conservatives, especially social conservatives, is Governor Matt Bevin’s re-election bid in Kentucky. Bevin’s race is significant because he has aggressively pursued a robust pro-family agenda and has drawn significant criticism from the Left because of it. Bevin is in a tough race, but his ideas have strong support. According to a poll commissioned by American Principles Project (the parent organization of The National Pulse) taken in January, 722 respondents answered the following question: How would you rate the job Matt Bevin has been doing

Woke Democrats Wage War on Women’s Shelters

Democrats were quite busy last week, finding ample opportunity to enjoy their favorite hobby — harassing the president. These hijinks notably included meeting to impeach President Trump, and then behaving as if they were shocked that the President didn’t want to discuss infrastructure with them on that very same day. Yet, their penchant for pandering to their intersectionality-obsessed base still needed to be satisfied. So, after expounding their radical views on gender ideology, some Democrats (ironically including Rep. Jennifer Wexton, D-Va.) have called HUD Secretary Ben Carson a liar for changing an Obama administration rule regarding discrimination in federally funded

Parents Beware: “School Climate Surveys” Pose Many Threats to Students

A recent article by Joy Pullmann in The Federalist demonstrates just how nosy and invasive “school climate surveys” have become. These surveys are now a cornerstone of the implementation of social-emotional learning (SEL) programs in the nation’s public schools and have also been found in Common Core-aligned state tests and (illegally) in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). The surveys make use of extremely vague and subjective questions, such as these examples from the Massachusetts state test: As noted by Pullmann, another such survey used in the Austin (Texas) Independent School District usurps parental autonomy and asks the particularly

Radical Lesbian Feminist Activist Tells Truth About Transgender Agenda

Julia Beck, a self-described radical lesbian feminist and the former law and policy co-chair of Baltimore’s LGBTQ Commission, testified before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday during their hearing for H.R. 5, the Equality Act. The Equality Act would amend virtually all current federal laws covering employment, housing, credit, education, public spaces and services, federally funded programs, and jury service to include sexual orientation and gender identity among the prohibited categories of discrimination or segregation in places of public accommodation. The Equality Act also expands the scope of what the Civil Rights Act of 1964 considers “public accommodation” to include

Equality Is Not Our Military’s Foremost Concern — Effectiveness Is

U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) last week tweeted out opposition to the ban on transgendered persons serving in the military. She said, “Banning transgender people from serving in our military violates the fundamental value at the heart of our country: equality. This cannot be our America.” Harris and others who want to see the ban lifted believe that the military should be inclusive. I don’t want the military to become inclusive. It is effective because it is exclusive. When I enlisted in the Army (I served in the Army National Guard from 1989 to 1997), I had to go down

Wisconsin to Begin Funding Sex Reassignment via Medicaid in 2019

Starting off a new year is always associated with change, and the state of Wisconsin is no exception. As 2019 begins, state Medicaid will now begin to pay for sex reassignment surgery and hormone therapy. Wisconsin’s Group Insurance Board originally voted to start paying for sex reassignment and hormone therapy back in 2016. However, the vote was reversed after Governor Scott Walker asked them to reconsider. This request was based on a dispute of the federal government’s interpretation of Title IX and definition of “sexual discrimination.” The board ended the coverage on December 30, 2016, and this reversal was upheld
