And there’s probably not much you can do about it…
“Stop right there,” read the text from one of my production crew.
I had just sent over the show prep topics for my Saturday Evening broadcast and the headline of the first story up had caused him to literally stop in his tracks.
In a sense of disbelief the producers of my show googled “pregnant man gives birth.” Even though the story was less than a day old, more than a million hits in google news popped up:
It wasn’t restricted to British press and it certainly swept the world of “journalism” (however yellow it will come to be known in this era) as fast as people could kick out a shocking title for it and cite the source that cited the source of the source that was cited before that last source… was cited.
The problem is the story is 100% untrue.
Yet being untrue—literally, scientifically, metaphorically, biologically, chemically, linguistically—didn’t stop a million outlets from printing it, as breathlessly first cited by the British media outlets.
The actual story—in reality—isn’t nearly as exciting, breathtaking, or groundbreaking as the headlines and media companies wanted you to believe.
As I awakened early on Saturday my attention was first drawn to it by a prominent pastor in the New York area tweeting it out. “Just when you think the world couldn’t get any crazier…” He hash-tagged it #BizarroWorld.
Because of family duties it took me a couple of hours before I got around to reading the article he had attached. What I found was nearly criminal use of tortured language, a basis for citing malpractice against every outlet that reported it in the terms they did, and a bonafide reason to label “fake news” across the modern journalism landscape.
The story is a fraud, and not ONE media or press outlet had the guts to call it what it was.
So here goes…
The aforementioned “man” listed in the story is in fact not male at all. She is a female who had begun living as a man and was openly considering the act of transitioning to perhaps have the surgery that would make her anatomically male. She pumped hormones through her system, she grew some facial hair and her voice lowered a bit. But if you were to test any (and every) cell of her DNA it would ping *female.* She is in essence female in literally every cell of her being, and no reassigning of genitalia nor overdosing on hormones and supplements can change the cellular DNA of what sex she is. She will always be female.
Born as Paige, and later changing her name to Hayden, she decided that would begin to live as a male in preparation for perhaps obtaining the expensive surgeries to alter her external anatomy (as best as surgeons are able to do such.) But before she did—like many young women in life—she decided she wanted to have a baby.
It’s important to point out that the desire to have a baby is different than the desire to raise a child. And the desire to have one’s own baby is distinctly a maternal, female, & mothering instinct. She went so far as to request her eggs be frozen so that she could try at a later date, but the doctors felt it unwise and discouraged it.
It was at this moment that she decided that she desired to have a baby, more than to continue with the transitioning process she had undertaken.
She halted the process of transitioning to appearing to be a man.
She enlisted a sperm donor, and she conceived (a uniquely female ability.) And the conception worked. And today she is a mother.
She has not yet re-engaged her transitioning process, though she pledges to do so. She still has no male anatomical resemblances. Her cellular DNA is still 100% female. And her female capacity is likely more alive than ever before. It is likely her breasts are producing milk, she is likely experiencing fatigue and postpartum after effects, as well as healing from her pregnancy.
It would also surprise absolutely no one if she never returned to the path of transitioning from one sex to the other—which to repeat is only achieved on a very superficial appearance level at best.
It made for shocking headlines. It made for progressive high-fives. It is seen as a “win” for those who would like to deny basic science and attempt to reconstruct all of society in a godless vacuum.
But they can’t, because the code on changing cellular identity has never been cracked.
Paige can change her name to Hayden. She can add external genitals, and attempt to have her milk glands removed. She can cut her hair, grow a beard, and speak with a baritone pitch.
But none of it changes the fact that God allowed her to become a mom.
And that’s one of the best miracles anyone could ask for from life!
Which is a bigger assault on decency?
Those who come up with evil? Or those who pay those who come up with it?
If it’s the latter, hold your horses people, because that’s you and me.
Elizabeth Harrington reports in the Washington Free Beacon that the funding behind the pathetic assassination play depicting Donald Trump being stabbed graphically to death in front of his distraught wife, didn’t get shut down.
It got rewarded.
Since 2009 the same creators have raked in $30 million dollars from federal, state, and city grants.
The National Endowment for the Arts–which should have been removed from the tax-payer dole years ago–is awarding the Public Theater of New York with a six figure endowment for next season.
Evidently NEA doesn’t have the wisdom that Delta Airlines and Bank of America both had, which was to steer its name clear of productions that are comfortable with graphic depiction of assassinating the lawfully & overwhelmingly elected (33 of 50 states) President of the United States.
The production falls in line with a series of more than 40 attacks on either the President or members of his party that were either desired, articulated, or graphically carried out. This idea of killing or grossly injuring those you simply disagree with politically is also encouraging additional coarsening towards violence in the society at large.
Every step down this rabbit hole of justifiable violence brings a free people closer to the reality where people take circumstances into their own hands because of such failed leadership.
The fact that the federal government finds itself funding such trash is despicable, doing so in such a way that lends itself to our own destruction is something people of all philosophical and political persuasions should be aggressively pushing back against.
Has anybody had enough yet?
They are almost as numerous to keep up with as the number of attacks ISIS related terrorists have launched during the season of Ramadan in 2017.
Left leaning outlet after person after celebrity after elitist wants either Trump, his supporters, or his party’s congressional reps dead. Dead dead… they want them deadest of all the deads.
And they don’t just want them dead, they want them dead in violent extreme ugly ways of being dead.
Kathy Griffin was shocked to find out that beheading the President might frighten his young son. (Because in Kathy Griffin’s world severing the head of your philosophical enemy doesn’t seem extreme, distasteful, or cause for concern.) Beheading was also the choice of violence George Lopez wished to exercise against Trump, but wanted Vincente Fox to do it.
Mickey Rourke would like to bash the President’s head in with a Louisville Slugger.
Larry Wilmore, a defunct TV “comic” wants to suffocate the President–and went out of his way to say that he wasn’t joking, but being quite literal.
Marilyn Manson wants to be counted in the beheading category.
Pop-singer past her prime–Madonna–wanted to blow up the White House. Though we don’t know if she meant suicide bomber style or not. Fellow musician Moby also kills the President in an explosive fireball.
Actor Robert De Niro picked the most polite method of merely punching the President in the face. Rapper Snoop Dogg envisioned blowing Trump’s brains out in his music video. While the NYC public theater company just wanted to stab him to a bloody death in front of his wife. Actor Johnny Depp pondered assassinating the President while giving a public talk in England just last week.
But in addition to the direct desires of violence against President Trump himself, people that are perceived to be part of his party and “on his team” have been targeted even more aggressively.
Since May 1, 2017 more than 30 members of Congress & 2 U.S. Senators have been directly targeted and assaulted. Some as the mark of an assassin. Some through death threats, physical altercations at town hall meetings, and one even run off the road.
Any single act of violence is deplorable. Any single elitist actor or pompous pop-culture character inciting a violent end to the President is despicable (of any party to any president.)
But we’re talking about nearly 4 dozen attacks or expressed death wishes against exclusively the President and Republicans in less than 60 days.
At this point I could care less about their motivation or explanation as to why.
I just want them stopped.
Correction I want them to stop.
Actually both… either… I don’t care.
This isn’t an issue of free speech.
We are not allowed to yell “fire” in a crowded theater, and to me publicly lusting for the death of everyone who disagrees with you seems more like a rule of thumb in Islamic jihad than it does the constitutional republic that IS the United States of America.
And a thought on what I’m not saying… I am not advocating that we pass a law that prevents them from saying such hateful things. What I wish for and hope that we could all agree upon is that such behavior is just objectively shameful and that we choose with our feet, dollars, and interest to not support those that hold these ideas.
Ostracizing Johnny Depp, gets Disney’s attention, and the rules of the free market can take care of themselves if we present the face to the world that his perverted obsessions of killing our lawfully and overwhelmingly elected President (33 of 50 states) earn him a trip to the leper colony.
What I’m calling for is a commitment by the public–WE THE PEOPLE–to abhor the abhorrent, to no longer excuse the explicitly inexcusable, and to call morally evil that which qualifies as such.
I understand that to do so requires us as a nation to draw at least one line in the sand to say that it is absolutely unacceptable to wish for the deaths of our fellow Americans. I also know that we don’t like absolutes in the days in which we live. To say that something is of absolute moral rightness or wrongness is one of the least popular positions to take in a society that is built on shifting ideas and the fear of being “unpopular.”
It is time to sound the alarm, for if we begin to accept the idea that our neighbor (at least the ones who disagree with us) can be “done away with” and we’d be “better off” if we did we are a nation that will have already lost every societal challenge we have to face, and in very short order will no longer be a nation at all.
We have always–as Americans–welcomed the rigorous debate, the vicarious battle for ideas, and the understanding that our differences can make us stronger.
The American left seems to have left these things in the dust as they seek absolute suffocation of anything that dares to challenge their group think.
Resorting to violence, death wishes, and assassination attempts is their wicked expression at recourse, and its time to make it stop.
So on today’s show we follow up on a story that was first seen on the local ABC affiliate.
They really seemed to “care.” For when we inquired about what response they would be making to the reality that their policy had caused this woman’s violations to occur they pledged to provide segways for security managers… I kid you not.
We asked them to join me on the show. Here’s exactly how they responded:

So there is a story of a man in Woodlands, TX that took a picture of a woman in a dressing room and my host in New York, Kevin McCullough, would like to know if a spokesperson would be able to address the situation and your safety policies when it comes to dressing rooms and bathrooms. Here is the link and we are going at 3:05 to discuss it, just wanted a voice from Target to help us understand how you will rectify the issue. Kevin’s show goes national to 200+ outlets as well.

Thanks for providing more information. We are going to pass on participating in a live interview, but I can share more information with you shortly about the safety measures that we take in our stores.
I’ll follow up momentarily with more information.
Here are a few additional details I can share for your story:
As part of Target’s commitment to safety, we have a number of policies, procedures and trainings in place to ensure that our stores are safe places to shop and work, including:
We have team members trained specifically to manage safety in our stores and we provide them with regular training
We provide our teams with the technologies needed to keep our stores safe, including things like Segways for mobile security, surveillance cameras and strategic lighting across our buildings and parking lots
We work with thousands of organizations across the country in law enforcement, emergency management and public health to provide funding, supplies and equipment and training for officials
As always, we ask that guests inform a team member immediately if there is a situation that makes them feel unsafe.
We are grateful for the partnerships we are honored to be part of. Confidant that they bring to your life what they promise. And with some we can make a difference for others:

So on social media tonight a friend asked, “Our church doesn’t do VBS, anyone know of any near them?”
An innocent question to be sure. Then I realized how many different times I’ve heard the phrase, “Our church doesn’t do _______!” In the last several weeks.
Heres an incomplete list:
“Our church doesn’t do Sunday Nights…”
“Our church doesn’t do VBS…”
“Our church doesn’t do ‘bring your own Bible.'”
“Our church doesn’t do hymns”
“Our church doesn’t do the ‘problem passages’ in scripture that just cause people to argue.'”
“Our church doesn’t do Genesis…”
“Our church doesn’t do sex related passages because we try to keep it family friendly, positive, and upbeat (also non-judgy.)”
“Our church doesn’t do ‘Hell.'”
“Our church doesn’t do ‘repent’ we prefer the more positive ‘follow.'”
“Our church doesn’t do ‘Thus sayeth the Lord.’ Because no one likes to be told what to do.”
“Our church doesn’t do ‘Gettys’ bc they write hymns.”
“Our church doesn’t do ‘congregational’ singing, because it’s all about making everyone feel welcome…”
“Our church doesn’t do tithing… or offerings.”
“Our church doesn’t do fire and brimstone… it’s time to get right… I plead with you to make a decision for Him (judgy/follow/welcome thing again.)”
I guess some church doesn’t really DO church…
Am I Wrong?
If blunt talk doesn’t put world leaders at ease, but rather causes them to correct course, isn’t it the right thing to do?
It’s an “Ugly American” question I get it. But it is a necessary one as well.
As President Trump “went there” today at the beautiful and spacious new NATO headquarters, there were too many TV cameras sweeping the gathered world leaders and their reactions to miss clearly their looks of discomfort at his blunt assessment.
Following his historic speech in Riyadh where he–with equal bluntness–demanded that the nations of the middle east must become the first and primary force against the cancer of the expanding Islamic extremism, he also forcefully reminded Europe and NATO that while America is their partner in this fight, they too must bear some of the burden.
In some capacity the genius of Trump’s “America First” focus is that he is forcing the rest of the world to grow up. To even mention the cost of the American tax-payer in his speech to NATO had to have been a first for any U.S. President.
And he is correct…
NATO sits rightfully concerned about several crises, some of their own making. Refusing to do much to stop ISIS, NATO’s inaction created the refugee crisis. The refugee crisis–in return–is the cover being used to attack the NATO homelands. And Russia sits on NATO’s back doorstep eagerly waiting and watching.
Combine NATO nations’ largely vapid religious and moral conditions and what was a great collection of nations once gathered for the collective protection of nations of similar values, it is now hard to even identify what some of the nations’ values are.
When President Trump purposefully identified the refugee crisis, unlike what former Deputy Secretary of State Nicholas Burns told Shannon Bream on FoxNews, he wasn’t breaking with historic policy nor expressing hostility towards the legitimate displaced peoples of Syria. He was in fact identifying a lack of commitment to a nations’ own sovereignty (that he perceives is present within the NATO members) and attempting to subtly encourage them to in fact address as much in their own domestic agendas.
At the end of the day President Trump is not invested in NATO’s success nearly as much as he is committed to American safety, and like a former British Prime Minister by the name of Churchill he seems to see and even understand the threat of the great and looming evil even when the Chamberlain-like figures of May, Merkel, and Obama have had a hard time admitting the evil even exists–even after horrid acts and atrocities take place.
I learned at an early age that while I didn’t like it, the only people in my life who truly loved me, were friends and family who dealt straight with me. This flies in the face of snowflakes today, but it is genuinely true.
The addict whose family holds the intervention, the spouse who confronts their partner, the best friend that says they can no longer be friends unless and until change occurs–these are incredibly difficult things to hear and say.
But they must be said.
For to not say them is to condemn the individual (or in Trump’s case the civilized world) to the destruction that would ensue.
Ironically the “Make America Great Again” President is arguing for the most compassionate and long term good for the globe in a way that the constant apologizing of the globalists never will.
That President Trump takes seriously both the threat of Islamic extremism, and the culpability of nations not taking care to take preventative measures against attacks, who go even further to invite those who perform those attacks seemingly into their midst, and THEN still won’t pay their portion of the check for the rest of the freedom loving world to help protect them is merely analysis.
That President Trump has the courage to go to the homeland of the extremists, and stare into the eyes of the nation’s they seek to exploit and urge in the most sincere and direct way as possible to change their ways is genuine care.
Blunt talk is uneasy to endure sometimes.
But other times…
It can save our lives!
Don’t be shocked if ISIS hits San Francisco next.
This may seem rather harsh and unforgiving in the immediate aftermath of Manchester’s still recovering state, and even more so while the death toll continues to climb. But as long as pockets of stupid progressives continue to set policies, people will keep getting blown up, shot, and slashed.
And no where in America are Americans in more danger than where liberal progressives are in total command.
In Manchester terrorists plotted a public event that was already designed to enrage the restrictive societal allowances of what Islamic radical extremists use in their narrative to justify their actions. The degree of skin that Ariana Grande shows in an average show verges on a lingerie showcase and would be one of the reasons why my daughter would not be allowed to attend.
But the desire by the extremists to attack the “infidels” while they are participating in “immoral” activity becomes their rationalization. But it is not their exclusive rationale.
The terrorists hit Manchester because the Brits have purposefully ignored recent trends and failed to take thoughtful “pre-“action to anticipate the issue properly.
How else do you explain the fact that levels of arrests, stop & frisks, questioning of suspects in ports and air hubs have all dropped since 2015?
How else do you explain that despite a 5-6 hour constant viral red-flag being raised on twitter #ManchesterArena, there was zero increased presence in the hall, at the venue, or even a security perimeter? You literally had the red light flashing WARNING, and no one paid attention.
We also learned today that the UK has 3900 radical Islamists, including some 400 former ISIS fighters living within a train ride of Manchester. No doubt many of these were some turning #ManchesterArena viral. Opportunity, motivation, access, and capacity all played a decision into blowing up the children at the show.
In San Francisco only a few weeks ago the city leaders (Mayor/Police Commissioner) made a large public fuss over their personal disgust with the “tone” of the administration has it had been expressed in two separate and highly constitutional executive orders that limited travel from Obama-determined “hot spots.”
In reaction they then proceeded to withdraw their city from participation in the Joint Terrorism Task Force. The JTTF was established to form cooperative efforts between federal anti-terror units and local police to help monitor active threats and keep them neutralized before materializing.
Considering that only weeks before they had taken the provocative step of reiterating their status as a “Sanctuary City” in direct defiance to the federal government’s warning that to do so could cost municipalities, the dual action of partisan stupidity uniquely has established San Francisco as not only a threat to their own citizens, but a national doorway to havoc.
They refuse to enforce common sense immigration guidelines, and now they have become non-cooperative on the national terror front. The loss of federal monies to their city aside (in the tens of millions,) they will also have fewer foot-soldiers to police their city with, while simultaneously inviting trouble on multiple fronts.
The terrorists in the U.K. didn’t hit London. They hit a smaller city, one that had much more open access, and a venue that had nearly no security presence. They knew how, they were watching for when, and the social media blinked DANGER for hours before they actually carried it out.
There are a number of lessons that free people should be taking away from the Manchester attack, but none of them matter, if first among them is not the lesson of thinking ahead, and overwhelming the presence with law enforcement for the public good.
The world is looking to President Trump to do as he promised in his campaign, to keep the fight hot and heavy against the terrorists. In America we must remove those obstacles that somehow keep him from accomplishing that primary task.
We must stop the nutty left, because they will not only get themselves killed, but they become an open doorway to kill many of us as well.
It’s sad when you must be forced to address someone who exhibits bad behavior. It’s especially bad when said persons are over the age of 7.
After spending the entirety of Holy Weekend playing both mom and dad to seven, four, and two year olds, I have an even deeper appreciation for the way the Trump administration has been handling and addressing the world’s hot spots.
I have much greater appreciation for the President, knowing that he was fundamentally moved by seeing Assad gas babies. This tells me a couple of things about his ability to handle the sick man in charge over there, but also about his commitment to the most vulnerable lives among us–children.
I was equally pleased that he gave his generals enough leeway to make the decision as to whether or not they needed to drop the 28,000lbs hay-maker known simply as MOAB. With the death toll of that attack nearing 100 dead, and seeing that 100% of those dead are thus far individually identified as ISIS personnel, it was great to see the generals trusted to do their jobs!
Ask members of the Naval flight communities and they can tell you all to well how when flying missions above the enemy under Obama, they’d identify the enemy and radio back for permission to engage, at which juncture Obama would usually wait an hour to get back to them. Of course the cockroaches had scrambled the minute they heard the jet engines.
Obama described it as an era of “strategic patience.” Which before this last weekend my seven year old would’ve easily understood to mean, “I’m not required to clean up my act until I’m forced to.”
That’s how ISIS viewed Obama, same with Iran, Russia, China, and North Korea.
Which brings us back to Pence’s statement. “The era of strategic pateince is over.” My seven year old knows how to manipulate that to get what you want. Did the previous administration honestly believe that North Korea didn’t?
Now that China knows the President will at times stiffen his back they need to watch their own. Russia sees what we will do to someone who gasses babies. And soon the pacific fleet will surround North Korea.
There is no more “strategic patience.”
The EXPECTATION has become “strategic cooperation.” And North Korea is being told that if they do not play as instructed that additional disciplines can be hatched – in a blink!
