POTUS Ponders Drug Sentencing Reform after Kanye Rendezvous

As Americans and the world at large continue to reexamine the realities of the failed war on drugs, a number of citizens have been in the President’s ear on the subject.

Earlier this, television star and entrepreneur Kim Kardashian met with President Trump at the White House to discuss the subject of prison reform, in a conversation that eventually led to the Commander in Chief to commute the sentence of Alice Marie Johnson – a woman who was sentenced to life for a drug conviction.

Now, after hearing similar pleas for reform from Kardashian’s husband, eccentric rapper Kanye West, the President has signaled a willingness to indulge in future drug sentencing reform.

“You have many people like Mrs. Johnson,” Trump said on Fox News. “There are people in jail for really long terms.”

Notably, Trump did not say the solution is more commutations, although those would certainly be welcome. “There has to be a reform, because it’s very unfair right now,” he said. “It’s very unfair to African-Americans. It’s very unfair to everybody.”

Trump had high praise for criminal justice reforms in Texas and Georgia, which in recent years have seen falling crime rates even as they reduced their prison populations. “They really have done a tremendous job with reform,” he said.

These comments, which may seem surprising from a man who has consciously cultivated a tough-on-crime image, reflect the influence of people Trump respects, people like his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a supporter of the conservative reform organization Right on Crime. And yes, people like Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.

These statements come within hours of Canada’s incredible legal maneuver in which the national prohibition on marijuana has been lifted.

The United States certainly stands to profit should they follow suit, not only for the green gold rush that recreational and medicinal marijuana has proven itself to be, but also with the possibility of year round exports of the cash crop to Canada during our ally’s long, cold winters.

There is truly nowhere for parents to go for entertainment for their kids that is free of the radical transgender agenda and now even the Muppets are pushing this sexualized garbage on kids. The Disney Junior kids show Muppet Babies recently featured an episode with Muppet favorite Gonzo going transgender. In the episode, Gonzo’s friend, Summer, happily told Gonzo that she was going to dress like a “princess” for a royal ball. But when Gonzo became excited that he also could wear a dress, Summer said he was a boy so he couldn’t dress like a princess. After he said he wanted to wear a dress, Summer told Gonzo, “But Gonzo, Piggy and I are the princesses, we wear the dresses.” “That’s right! According to the royal handbook, the girls come as princesses, and the boys come as knights,” Piggy added. Gonzo was portrayed as being upset over the conversation. He wanted to dress like a princess, but was told he cannot do so. As Gonzo sulked, Rizzo the Fairy RatFather appeard to magically bestow a gown and mask on Gonzo so he can attend the ball as a female, too. So, Gonzo attends the ball as a mysterious woman named Gonzorella. And then comes the big reveal. https://youtu.be/Rw6h1NZkzQk https://youtu.be/BkyaenLCZ8k “Everyone, there’s something I need to tell you,” Gonzo said, placing a glass slipper on his foot. “The princess who came to your ball tonight was me. I’m Gonzorella!” When Gonzo was questioned about the dress, he answered, “You all expected me to look a certain way.” “I don’t want you to be upset with me. But I don’t want to do things because that’s the way they’ve always been done either. I want to be me,” he said. https://twitter.com/HistoryMuppet/status/1418996764397420544 Unsurprisingly, the Disney videos had comments turned off on its…

American ‘Medical’ Association Argues to Remove Sex from All Birth Certificates

The American Medical Association is now openly saying that there is no such thing as “sex” and it should be removed from birth certificates.

The American Medical Association, an organization supposedly dedicated to science and medicine, is now openly saying that there is no such thing as “sex” and so the designation should be removed from all birth certificates. The AMA once again proves that politics, not science or medicine, is what drives them. https://twitter.com/WebMD/status/1421312166108581888 “Designating sex on birth certificates as male or female, and making that information available on the public portion, perpetuates a view that sex designation is permanent and fails to recognize the medical spectrum of gender identity. This type of categorization system also risks stifling an individual’s self-expression and self-identification and contributes to marginalization and minoritization,” said AMA Board Chair-Elect Sandra Adamson Fryhofer, M.D. Not all doctors were on board with the move. Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Robert Jackson told WebMD Health News that he opposed the measure. “We as physicians need to report things accurately,” Jackson said. “All through medical school, residency, and specialty training we were supposed to delegate all of the physical findings of the patient we’re taking care of. I think when the child is born, they do have physical characteristics either male or female and I think that probably should be on the public record. That’s just my personal opinion.” In any case, it is clear that the AMA is not interested in facts or science. Eliminating gender on birth certificates would put the health of many people in danger when doctors can’t easily discover what biological gender their patients are.
