Anthony Scaramucci has been fired

Lord, the hits keep on coming

Anthony Scaramucci has been fired as the communications director for the White House.


The ho was only there for 10 days! But during that time, he boasted about being trump's bottom bitch, Bannon sucking his own dick and how crazy Reince Priebus was.

The decision to remove Mooch came from John F. Kelly, the real person in charge. I tell you, this administration is a mess.

Janet Mock's response to The Breakfast Club mess


After appearing on The Breakfast Club, Janet Mock found herself in the middle of a mess. Some stupid fool, Lil Duval, said some hurtful things on that show about trans women. He said:

“This might sound messed up and I don’t care. She dying. I can’t deal with that. You manipulated me to believe in this thing. If one did that to me, and they didn’t tell me, I’mma be so mad I’d probably going to want to kill them.”


Well, Janet responded in a piece in Allure magazine:
The hosts laugh after using my image as a literal prop — just days after I was a guest on the same show — for laughs, vitriol, and a deeper call and justification for violence. Just so we are all clear: On a black program that often advocates for the safety and lives of black people, its hosts laughed as their guest advocated for the murder of black trans women who are black people, too!

This was not the first time that I’ve been misgendered, dismissed, told that I am an abomination, that I need medical help and God, et cetera, et cetera. Boo boo: You are not original. Everything you’ve spewed has been said to me and my sisters before — hundreds of times. But there are deeper consequences to this casual ignorance.
It’s this deplorable rhetoric that leads many cis men, desperately clutching their heterosexuality, to yell at, kick, spit on, shoot, burn, stone, and kill trans women of color. It’s something I’ve written about extensively and even explored in my conversation with actress Amiyah Scott, who lost her sister Chyna Gibson when she was shot to death in New Orleans in February. Chyna was the fifth trans woman killed in 2017.

There have been at least 15 reported deaths of trans women of color so far this year, according to GLAAD.
Until cis people — especially heteronormative men — are able to interrogate their own toxic masculinity and realize their own gender performance is literally killing trans women, cis men will continue to persecute trans women and blame them for their own deaths. If you think trans women should disclose and “be honest,” then why don’t you work on making the damn world safe for us to exist in the first place? The “I’d kill a woman if I found out” rhetoric is precisely why so many women hold themselves so tight — the stigma and shame attached to our desires need to be abolished.
Activists and allies are coming for the Breakfast Club and lil Duval by using the hashtag #TransFolksAreNotaJoke. Please do yourself a favor and check it out

White House chief of staff Reince Priebus FIRED



Today in "Dumpster Fire," trump fired White House chief of staff Reince Priebus and replaced him with John Kelly, his Homeland Security secretary.

This was all done on Twitter btw


The reasons are unknown, but the rumors claim that Reince was leaking info about trump. I'm hoping that Reince spills the tea during the Sunday shows.

Chief Scout Executive for the Boy Scouts of America apologizes for trump's Crazy Behavior


Get into this letter written by Michael Surbaugh is the Chief Scout Executive for the Boy Scouts of America

Scouting Family,

In the last two weeks, we have celebrated the best of Scouting at our 20th National Jamboree with nearly 40,000 participants, volunteers, staff and visitors. The 2017 National Jamboree has showcased and furthered the Scouting mission by combining adventure and leadership development to give youth life-changing experiences. Scouts from Alaska met Scouts from Alabama; Scouts from New Mexico met those from New York, and American youth met youth from 59 other countries.

Over the course of ten days, Scouts have taken part in adventures, learned new skills, made new and lasting friendships and completed over 200 community service projects that offered 100,000 hours of service to the community by young men and women eager to do the right thing for the right reasons.

These character-building experiences have not diminished in recent days at the jamboree – Scouts have continued to trade patches, climb rock walls, and share stories about the day’s adventures. But for our Scouting family at home not able to see these real moments of Scouting, we know the past few days have been overshadowed by the remarks offered by the President of the United States.

I want to extend my sincere apologies to those in our Scouting family who were offended by the political rhetoric that was inserted into the jamboree. That was never our intent. The invitation for the sitting U.S. President to visit the National Jamboree is a long-standing tradition that has been extended to the leader of our nation that has had a Jamboree during his term since 1937. It is in no way an endorsement of any person, party or policies. For years, people have called upon us to take a position on political issues, and we have steadfastly remained non-partisan and refused to comment on political matters. We sincerely regret that politics were inserted into the Scouting program.

While we live in a challenging time in a country divided along political lines, the focus of Scouting remains the same today as every day.

Trustworthiness, loyalty, kindness and bravery are just a few of the admirable traits Scouts aspire to develop – in fact, they make up the Scout Oath and Scout Law.

As part of our program’s duty to country, we teach youth to become active citizens, to participate in their government, respect the variety of perspectives and to stand up for individual rights.

Few will argue the importance of teaching values and responsibility to our youth — not only right from wrong, but specific positive values such as fairness, courage, honor and respect for others.

For all of the adventure we provide youth such as hiking, camping and zip-lining, those activities actually serve as proven pathways and opportunities to develop leadership skills and become people of character.

In a time when differences seem to separate our country, we hope the true spirit of Scouting will empower our next generation of leaders to bring people together to do good in the world.

Yours in Scouting,

Mike

Joint Chiefs chairman: No change in military’s transgender policy


Today, the Joint Chiefs of Staff said that the U.S. military will not change its transgender policy until trump clarifies his messy ass tweets.

Joe Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said:
“I know there are questions about yesterday’s announcement on the transgender policy by the president. There will be no modifications to the current policy until the president’s direction has been received by the secretary of defense and the secretary has issued implementation guidance. In the meantime, we will continue to treat all of our personnel with respect."
This news took all of us by surprise, especially the Pentagon. They were completely caught off guard by trump and his tweets. From their prospective, they didn't have any reason to implement a ban, so why is trump doing this?

Senate Rejects Repeal Without Replace

Some good news...

The Senate rejected a measure to repealed major parts of the Affordable Care Act today.

Here's more
The vote, 45-55, underscored the bind that Republican leaders have found themselves in. Seven Republicans voted against the measure — Senators Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Susan Collins of Maine, Dean Heller of Nevada, John McCain of Arizona, Rob Portman of Ohio, Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska — showing that repealing the health law without an immediate replacement lacks crucial support among Republicans.

But a more comprehensive measure that would have repealed major parts of the law with a ready replacement also came up short on Tuesday night.

With neither approach viable, Senate Republican leaders may have no choice but to fall back on a third choice: Push a far more limited measure that repeals parts of the Affordable Care Act, such as its mandate that most people have insurance and a tax on medical devices, but leaves most of President Barack Obama’s signature health law in place. Senators would then take their narrow bill into negotiations with the House, which passed a comprehensive measure to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.
So, another fail is coming

OutServe-SLDN condemns President's Tweets on Transgender Service



OutServe-SLDN Comments on Trump Tweets Regarding Transgender Service Members


(WASHINGTON) July 26, 2017 – OutServe-SLDN issued the following statement today, in response to Donald Trump’s tweetstorm on open military service by transgender individuals.

"In his latest example of pseudo-policy-by-twitter, Donald Trump has shown blatant disregard for transgender service members who have been serving openly since October 2016. The disruptive burden to the military comes from indecision in a White House which itself is not focused on victory if it’s targeting service members. The readiness, effectiveness, and lethality of the Armed Services comes from the commitment of our troops – not the vagaries and bigotry of exclusionary policies.

We are committed to transgender service members. We are going to fight for them as hard as they are fighting for the country. And we’re going to start by taking the fight to Donald Trump in the Federal Court"

trump bans Trans people from the Military

Remember when trump called himself a "real friend" of the LGBT community?

Well, that was a lie and if you believed it, you were stupid.

Today, trump tweeted:

There's no reasoning behind it. There's no research to even support this. However, he felt that this was a major issue. This is pure bigotry.

We will fight this
