Gov. Kay Ivey (R-AL) signed a bill into law on Friday that bans biological males from being able to compete against girls in high school sports.

The law states that “no public K-12 school may participate in, sponsor, or provide coaching staff for interscholastic athletic events at which athletes are allowed to participate in competition against athletes who are of a different biological gender, unless the event specifically includes both biological genders.”

The law cites the following information:

1. Physical differences between biological males and biological females have long made separate and sex-specific sports teams important so that female athletes can have equal opportunities to compete in sports.

2. Physical advantages for biological males relevant to sports include, on average, a larger body size with more skeletal muscle mass, a lower percentage of body fat, and greater maximal delivery of anaerobic and aerobic energy than biological females.

3. Even at young ages, biological males typically score higher than biological females on cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, muscular endurance, and speed and agility. These differences become more pronounced during and after puberty as biological males produce higher levels of testosterone. On average, biological male athletes are bigger, faster, stronger, and more physically powerful than their biological female counterparts. This results in a significant sports performance gap between the sexes.

4. Studies have shown that the benefits that natural testosterone provides to biological male athletes is not significantly diminished through the use of testosterone suppression. Testosterone suppression in biological males does not result in a level playing field between biological male and biological female athletes.

5. Because of the physical differences between biological males and biological females, having separate athletic teams based on the athletes’ biological sex reduces the chance of injury to biological female athletes and promotes sex equality. It provides opportunities for biological female athletes to compete against their peers rather than against biological male athletes, and allows biological female athletes to compete on a fair playing field for scholarships and other athletic accomplishments.

Biological females are barred from competing in boy’s high school sports “if there is a female team in [the specific] sport.”

The bill concludes by stating that “a public K-12 school may never allow a biological male to participate on a female team.”

“The Alabama House voted 74-19 for the bill sponsored by Republican Rep. Scott Stadthagen of Hartselle,” The Associated Press reported. “The Alabama Senate voted 25-5 for the legislation.”

Stadthagen said: “I want to thank Governor Ivey for her leadership and for protecting the rights of Alabama’s female athletes. Standing up for what is right is not always easy, but it is always the right thing to do.”

    Report: Melinda Gates Was Furious With Husband Bill For Meeting Jeffrey Epstein

    Published

    on

    According to The Daily Beast, in September 2013 billionaire Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and his wife Melinda allegedly met with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein in New York City, prompting anger from Melinda, who reportedly told her husband she was furious and uncomfortable with his association with Epstein.

    That meeting allegedly occurred on the same day the couple accepted the Lasker Bloomberg Public Service Award at the Pierre Hotel.

    That was reportedly not the first time Gates had met Epstein; the Daily Beast pointed out: “As The New York Times reported, starting in 2011, Gates met with Epstein on numerous occasions. This was three years after Epstein pleaded guilty to soliciting an underage girl in Florida; by then, accusations that Epstein exploited girls and young women were widely reported in the press.”

    The Times also noted that Gates had met Epstein at various times between 2011 to 2013 and Epstein attempted to solicit donations for a charitable fund. “In 2013, Gates also took a ride on Epstein’s private jet (christened by tabloids as the Lolita Express), from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey to Palm Beach, Florida, according to flight records reviewed by the Times,” The Daily Beast added.

    CNBC reported in 2019, “Epstein’s discussions with Gates included at least one meeting, which took place in New York in 2013, while Gates was still Microsoft’s chairman.”

    Gates said in 2019, “I met him. I didn’t have any business relationship or friendship with him. I didn’t go to New Mexico or Florida or Palm Beach or any of that. There were people around him who were saying, ‘Hey, if you want to raise money for global health and get more philanthropy, he knows a lot of rich people.’ Every meeting where I was with him were meetings with men. I was never at any parties or anything like that. He never donated any money to anything that I know about.”

    “Gates’ friendship with Epstein—who for years was accused of molesting scores of underage girls—still haunts Melinda, according to friends of the couple who spoke to The Daily Beast,” The Daily Beast added.

    According to the Times, Boris Nikolic, a graduate of Harvard Medical School and a “former adviser to Gates who was mysteriously named a backup executor in Epstein’s last will and testament,” acted as an intermediary between Gates and Epstein; the Times also named Melanie Walker, “who worked at the Gates foundation and served as a science advisor to Epstein.”

    “A person close to Walker told The Daily Beast she did not attend nor help set up any meetings between Gates and Epstein. Nikolic did not return multiple requests for comment,” The Daily Beast reported.

    The Daily Beast quoted an “associate in the technology world who’s attended the same events as Epstein” saying, “If you ask Bill Gates, he’ll say, ‘Oh I had absolutely no idea he wasn’t up to anything of the highest moral character.’ But I seriously doubted Epstein’s moral character.” The “associate” added of Melinda’s reported dislike of Epstein that Epstein’s photos of former President Bill Clinton and the Pope were “really obnoxious, especially if you’re somebody like Melinda and hanging around with heads of state anyway. Then to have someone do this endless name-dropping…”

    Gates reportedly emailed the Gates Foundation staff after first meeting Epstein, “His lifestyle is very different and kind of intriguing although it would not work for me.” Gates’ spokeswoman explained the email by attesting he “was referring only to the unique decor” and “Epstein’s habit of spontaneously bringing acquaintances in to meet Mr. Gates.”

    The New Yorker reported that Epstein helped set up Gates’ $2 million donation to the lab, writing, “Epstein appeared to serve as an intermediary between the lab and other wealthy donors, soliciting millions of dollars in donations from individuals and organizations, including the technologist and philanthropist Bill Gates and the investor Leon Black. According to the records obtained by The New Yorker and accounts from current and former faculty and staff of the media lab, Epstein was credited with securing at least $7.5 million in donations for the lab, including two million dollars from Gates and $5.5 million from Black, gifts the e-mails describe as ‘directed’ by Epstein or made at his behest.”

    Report: 1st Grade Teacher Reads Book To Students About Transgenderism. Female School Board Prez, Who Owns Sex Shop, Does Not Object.

    Published

    on

    In a first-grade class in Bellingham, Washington, the teacher decided to educate her children in the value of transgenderism, reading them “I Am Jazz,” a book about a two-year-old biological male starting to transition to a female.

    As Kara Zupkus of Young America’s Foundation detailed, Jennifer Miller, a first-grade teacher in Bellingham School District, was confronted by one angry parent, who demanded in an email, “Did you read this book to 1st graders today?”

    Miller defiantly responded, “Yes, I did read this book. As a district we are working hard to support all members of our school community and promote inclusion through understanding and compassion.” Zupkus reported, “Concerned parents reached out to school administrators and the school board, both of whom refused to take action.”

    The overview for the book “I Am Jazz” states, “From the time she was two years old, Jazz knew that she had a girl’s brain in a boy’s body. She loved pink and dressing up as a mermaid and didn’t feel like herself in boys’ clothing. This confused her family, until they took her to a doctor who said that Jazz was transgender and that she was born that way.”

    Zupkus noted that Jennifer Mason, president of the Bellingham School Board, owns and operates WinkWink, a sex boutique in downtown Bellingham which, according to The Western Front, is a “gender-inclusive, woman-owned, all-ages sex shop.”

    Mason stated, “I always thought that maybe I’d one day run for office, and maybe one day I would open a store, but I didn’t expect that those could happen at the same time.” The store reportedly offered informational classes on topics including “Intro to Vibrators” to “Butt Stuff Basics.” Mason boasted, “Many of us become adults that are still lacking in the language and information to have the type of sex life that we’d like to have. The classes are really to help broaden people’s understanding and skills,” adding, “I’ve always done important work, but I really wanted to do something that was important and fun. There are few things more fun than getting to talk to people about sex all day.”

    “I am a lifelong feminist and all of the work that I have ever done has been focused on people who have been marginalized,” Mason stated. “I’m always going to do my best to center marginalized people. “All of us need to have our eyes wide open about the ways that conservatives want to legislate our bodies and that their actions will impact the people who are already more marginalized,”

    “Mason, who has held her presidential position since 2017, was approached by concerned parents about pushing transgenderism on their first-grade children. She did not provide a response to their concerns,” Zupkus wrote. “An angry parent went so far as reaching out to Bellingham Public Schools superintendent, Greg Baker, with his concerns. Baker refused to engage over email with the parent, and instead requested a phone call–but shut down the idea once the parent asked if he could record the call.”

    Biden’s DOJ Is Now Getting Involved with the Arizona Election Audit

    Published

    on

    The Biden administration on Wednesday expressed concerns about ballot security and voter intimidation as the Arizona state Senate authorizes a private audit of the 2020 election in Maricopa County.

    In a letter to Republican state Sen. Karen Fann, the Justice Department raised “two issues of potential noncompliance with federal laws” related to the audit.

    “The first issue relates to a number of reports suggesting that the ballots, elections systems, and election materials that are the subject of the Maricopa County audit are no longer under the ultimate control of state and local elections officials, are not being adequately safeguarded by contractors at an insecure facility, and are at risk of being lost, stolen, altered, compromised or destroyed,” Justice Department official Pamela Karlan wrote.

    Karlan also said the methods used by the group running the audit, Cyber Ninjas, raise concerns about “potential intimidation of voters.”

    A statement of work released by Cyber Ninjas said the firm has been working to “identify voter registrations that did not make sense, and then knock on doors to confirm if valid voters actually lived at the stated address,” according to Karlan.

    Karlan said the statement of work also indicates that Cyber Ninjas will select at least three precincts in Maricopa County with “a high number of anomalies” in order to “conduct an audit of voting history.”

    “Voters may be contacted through a ‘combination of phone calls and physical canvassing’ to ‘collect information of whether the individual voted in the election’ in November 2020,” Karlan wrote.

    “We would appreciate your response to the concerns described herein, including advising us of the steps that the Arizona Senate will take to ensure that violations of federal law do not occur,” the letter concluded.

    The letter was sent one day after KNXV-TV reported that Cyber Ninjas was requiring volunteers to sign a non-disclosure agreement in order to participate in the audit.

    In 2016, former President Donald Trump won Maricopa County (which encompasses the Phoenix metropolitan area) over Democrat Hillary Clinton by approximately 44,500 votes, or 2.8 percent of the vote.

    In 2020, President Joe Biden won the county by about 45,100 votes, or 2.2 percent of the vote.

    Despite Biden’s victory, Republicans carried every countywide office in Maricopa, save for sheriff (which was held by the incumbent Democrat), including flipping the county recorder and winning the open treasurer seat.

    Biden won Arizona overall by 10,457 votes (0.3 percent), the closest margin of any of the swing states that went for him.

    Despite numerous allegations of voting irregularities, no court has ruled that fraud affected the results of the 2020 election.

    A news release from the Arizona Senate Republicans in late March said the audit will include scanning all 2.1 million paper ballots cast to look for irregularities, conducting a full manual recount, investigating the registration rolls to ensure only eligible voters voted and performing a forensic audit of the electronic voting machines and systems used.

    The audit was originally slated to be completed by May 14. However, Arizona Senate audit liaison Ken Bennett, who served as Arizona’s secretary of state from 2009 to 2015, has signaled it may go longer.

    Arizona GOP chairwoman Kelli Ward — who is not involved in the audit, but is monitoring its progress — said in a video posted on Twitter on Sunday, “They want to do it, and they want to do it right.”

    “This audit is to actually give the Arizona voting public assurance that our elections are secure, fair and honest,” she said. “Who doesn’t want that?”

    WATCH: Biden Stumbles, Struggles to Speak for 41 Seconds Straight

    Published

    on

    President Joe Biden’s inability to think and speak clearly has raised questions about his health since his presidential campaign. Unfortunately, he is not showing any evidence that those concerns are misplaced.

    On Wednesday, Biden struggled to speak for 41 straight seconds during a speech in the White House State Dining Room. He was attempting to discuss the impact of the pandemic on the restaurant business, but it was hard to hear that message amid his stumbling.

    For nearly one minute of air time, Biden was slurring his words, mistaking millions for thousands and failing to effectively communicate any real point to the American people.

    WATCH:

    Conservative news outlet The Daily Wire responded to Biden’s struggles in a sarcastic tweet assuring followers that “Everything is normal.”

    After the first incident, Biden again appeared completely spaced out when answering a question from a reporter. He repeatedly paused for awkwardly long amounts of time, and when he did speak, his answer provided little to no actual substance.

    Elise Stefanik Fires Back Against ‘Sexist Smear’ from Nancy Pelosi, Calls Out Double Standard

    Published

    on

    New York Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik blasted California Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi following Pelosi’s comments Thursday toward Stefanik on “PBS NewsHour.”

    Pelosi was asked, “Any comment on Elise Stefanik?”

    Pelosi’s answer included the statement “That’s really just up to them. Maybe she’s more, shall we say, compliant?”

    Stefanik took to Twitter to highlight what she saw as a double standard.

    “A sick sexist smear from Pelosi who will lose her gavel in 551 days. Yet the media doesn’t bat an eye! Imagine if these words were uttered about a Dem woman? Would be outrage coverage & the Speaker would have to resign,” Stefanik tweeted.

    The question came as former President Donald Trump endorsed Stefanik on Wednesday to replace Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney as chair of the House Republican Conference.

    “Liz Cheney is a warmongering fool who has no business in Republican Party Leadership,” Trump wrote in a statement.

    “We want leaders who believe in the Make America Great Again movement, and prioritize the values of America First. Elise Stefanik is a far superior choice, and she has my COMPLETE and TOTAL Endorsement for GOP Conference Chair. Elise is a tough and smart communicator!” Trump added.

    Cheney criticized Trump earlier this week, claiming the “2020 presidential election was not stolen.”

    “This is about whether the Republican Party is going to perpetuate lies about the 2020 election and attempt to whitewash what happened on Jan 6. Liz will not do that. That is the issue,” Cheney spokesman Jeremy Adler shared in a statement provided to ABC News.

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy joined in the criticism of Cheney, reportedly telling told “Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy on Tuesday that he’s “had it” with Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the third-highest-ranking Republican in the House.

    The off-air remarks came before an interview in which McCarthy discussed GOP representatives’ dissatisfaction with Cheney, according to Axios.

    “I think she’s got real problems,” McCarthy reportedly told Doocy.

    “I’ve had it with her. You know, I’ve lost confidence. … Well, someone just has to bring a motion, but I assume that will probably take place.”

    Laren Fine, a spokeswoman for House Minority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana, said, “House Republicans need to be solely focused on taking back the House in 2022 and fighting against Speaker Pelosi and President Biden’s radical socialist agenda,” according to The New York Times.

    “Elise Stefanik is strongly committed to doing that,” she added.
