California Drops Hammer On Travel To Iowa Over State Medicaid Not Funding Gender Transition Surgery

Oh good grief.

Published

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra has decided to drop the hammer on the state of Iowa by banning state-funded travel over the fact that the state’s law prohibits gender transition surgeries from being covered under Medicaid.

Because, you know, something like this isn’t just cosmetic, to the left it’s a form of helping someone deal with the gender dysmorphia.

In reality, all support for gender transition surgeries is nothing more than indulging someone’s dangerous mental illness and increasing their risk of suicide, but hey, when has compassion for others ever stopped the left from cashing in on a political issue to further their own agenda?

From the website of the California Office of the Attorney General:

In AB 1887, the California Legislature determined that “California must take action to avoid supporting or financing discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.” (Gov. Code, § 11139.8, subd. (a)(5).) To that end, AB 1887 prohibits a state agency, department, board, or commission from requiring any state employees, officers, or members to travel to a state that, after June 26, 2015, has enacted a law that (1) has the effect of voiding or repealing existing state or local protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression; (2) authorizes or requires discrimination against same-sex couples or their families or on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression; or (3) creates an exemption to anti-discrimination laws in order to permit discrimination against same-sex couples or their families or on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. (Gov. Code, § 11139.8, subds. (b)(1), (2).) In addition, the law prohibits California from approving a request for state-funded or state-sponsored travel to such a state.

The Iowa Supreme Court ruled in March 2019 that gender transition surgeries must be covered under Medicaid, since the state’s Civil Rights Act prohibited discrimination or refusal of service to people based on gender identity. So, the Iowa Legislature passed, and Gov. Kim Reynolds (R) signed, a bill that specifically excluded gender transition surgeries from Medicaid coverage.

“The Iowa Legislature has reversed course on what was settled law under the Iowa Civil Rights Act, repealing protections for those seeking gender-affirming healthcare,” Becerra said in a statement. “California has taken an unambiguous stand against discrimination and government actions that would enable it.”

The Iowa ban goes into effect Oct. 4.

Part of the ban is supposed to apply to colleges and universities, preventing them from participating in events in locations that are on the no-travel list, but this is only enforced on a discretionary basis, especially when it comes to college sports.

The whole reason for the left’s support of transgenderism stems from its strategy to destroy the traditional family unit, something it must accomplish if it wants the government to replace the family unit as the authority over future generations of American citizens.

This is done to create loyalty between citizens and government, making it seem that the state is the parent who cares for its “children,” thus whatever choices they make are right and good.

It’s spooky, isn’t it?

Now if only folks would wake up to this reality before it’s too late.

NBC President Says Ronan Farrow’s New Book ‘Motivated Not By Pursuit Of Truth, But An Axe To Grind’

Published

on

NBC News President Noah Oppenheim is not exactly what you’d call a fan of Ronan Farrow’s new book, “Catch and Kill,” calling it an “effort to defame” the network, one which is “clearly motivated not by a pursuit of truth, but an axe to grind.” Those comments were part of an email that was sent out by Oppenheim to all of the employees of the NBC News network on Monday morning. Check out the details from Fox News: The lengthy memo obtained by Fox News rejects Farrow’s reporting that suggests NBC wasn’t truthful regarding knowledge of alleged sexual misconduct by former “Today” co-host Matt Lauer, and that the network refused to expose Harvey Weinstein as a sexual predator because he leveraged information regarding Lauer. “Now that we’ve read Farrow’s book, it’s clear – his smear rests on the allegation that NBC’s management knew about and took steps to hide Matt Lauer’s misconduct before his firing in November of 2017. Without that, he has no basis on which to rest his second conspiracy theory — that his Harvey Weinstein reporting was squashed to protect Lauer,” Oppenheim wrote to staffers. Oppenheim and NBC News chairman Andy Lack have been accused of a “massive breach of journalistic integrity” by Farrow’s former NBC News producer Rich McHugh. Farrow has long claimed that NBC News stopped his reporting in an attempt to essentially cover for Weinstein. The situation has been a public relations nightmare for NBC and Oppenheim’s memo to staffers is the latest attempt to discredit “Catch and Kill” before its Tuesday release. The highly anticipated book details Farrow’s side of the story and the Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter has already caused NBC executives to release statements and hold staffer sit-downs prior to its official release on Tuesday. Oppenheim went on to write in his…

Christopher Columbus Statue Vandalized On Columbus Day: ‘Stop Celebrating Genocide’

Published

on

Residents of the city of Providence woke up this morning to find that a statue of famous explorer Christopher Columbus had been vandalized by individuals who aren’t exactly fans of the historical figure. The statue was covered in red paint and featured a sign that read, “Stop celebrating genocide.” The word “genocide” was scrawled on the back of the statue in orange paint. Check out the details from the Washington Examiner: The vandalism marked Columbus Day, a federal holiday commemorating the explorer’s arrival in the Americas in 1492. Columbus Day has grown contentious in recent decades after activists began pushing to change the day to Indigenous Peoples Day. The Indigenous Peoples Day movement sprung up around the 1992 quincentenary celebration of Columbus’s first voyage to the New World when scholarship of the Italian explorer was growing. The movement gained traction around the idea that Columbus sparked centuries of mass killings against Native Americans. Columbus’ voyage to the New World, at that time unknown to Europe, marked the beginning of centuries of mass immigration from Europe to the Americas. The explorer completed four voyages from Europe to the New World and earned the title “Admiral of the Ocean Sea” before his death in 1506. Columbus Day, and Christopher Columbus himself have become controversial in an era where political correctness, infecting the halls of higher education, have convinced young people that Columbus is a villain rather than the hero he’s been celebrated as being for hundreds of years.
