US court bars Trump from reversing transgender troops policy

A federal judge in Washington on Monday barred President Donald Trump’s administration from excluding transgender people from military service.

U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly ruled that transgender service members who had sued over Trump’s policy were likely to win their lawsuit. She directed a return to the situation that existed before Trump announced his new policy this summer.

Trump had ordered a return to the policy in place before June 2016, under which transgender individuals were barred from joining the military and service members could be discharged for being transgender. Under President Barack Obama, that policy was changed to allow transgender service members.

The Trump administration may appeal Kollar-Kotelly’s decision, but for now, the proposed ban remains unenforceable.

“We are enormously relieved for our plaintiffs and other transgender service members,” said Shannon Minter of the National Center for Lesbian Rights, an attorney handling the lawsuit.

“Their lives have been devastated since Trump first tweeted he was reinstating the ban,” Minter said. “They are now able to serve on equal terms with everyone else.”

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders, asked about the ruling at the White House briefing, said it was something that had just been announced and said the Justice Department was reviewing it.

Trump announced on Twitter in July that the “the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military.” He followed with an August memo directing the Pentagon to extend indefinitely a ban on transgender individuals joining the military, and gave Defense Secretary Jim Mattis six months to come up with a policy on “how to address” those who are currently serving.

Under the Obama administration, the Department of Defense had announced in 2016 that service members could not be discharged solely based on their gender identity. Transgender individuals were to be allowed to enlist in the military effective Jan. 1, 2018.

Minter said the new court ruling means they will be able to do that.

Charities dump Trump: More than a dozen groups cancel fundraisers at Mar-a-Lago

So far 16 charities have pulled out of holding their events at Trump’s club

Since Donald Trump blamed “both sides” for the deadly violence in Charlottesville last weekend, 16 charities have canceled their events at his Mar-a-Lago golf club.

On Friday, The American Red Cross said it nixed their plan to host their annual International Red Cross ball at the Palm Beach resort because of Trump’s response to the events in Charlottesville were controversial and distressing to their supporters.

“The American Red Cross has decided we cannot host our annual fundraising event at Mar-a-Lago, as it has increasingly become a source of controversy and pain for many of our volunteers, employees and supporters”, the Red Cross said in a statement.

“We believe this action will allow us to continue to put the focus on our lifesaving mission and the people we serve. The Red Cross provides assistance without discrimination to all people in need, regardless of nationality, race, religious beliefs, or political opinions, and we must be clear and unequivocal in our defense of that principle.”

Five other charities have cancelled their events at the club in the past 24 hours, including the Cleveland Clinic — the leading academic hospital, the American Cancer Society, and the Friends of Magen David Adom, the Israeli Red Cross, according to an updated list from the Palm Beach Daily News. In addition, the Salvation Army, the Autism Project of Palm Beach County and Susan G Komen have all cancelled their events, per the Washington Post.

Entire membership of Trump’s arts council quits over Charlottesville remarks

Another presidential advisory committee is breaking up.

Actor Kal Penn, artist Chuck Close and the entire membership of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities have announced their resignation. A letter dated Friday, and signed by 16 of 17 committee members, cited the “false equivalence” of President Donald Trump‘s comments about last weekend’s “Unite the Right” gathering in Charlottesville, Virginia. Trump has blamed “many sides” for the demonstrations that left an anti-racism activist dead.

The White House said Trump had already decided against renewing the advisory committee for budgetary reasons.

“Ignoring your hateful rhetoric would have made us complicit in your words and actions,” the letter reads. “Supremacy, discrimination, and vitriol are not American values. Your values are not American values. We must be better than this. We are better than this. If this is not clear to you, then we call on you to resign your office, too.”

The only member whose name did not appear was Broadway director George C. Wolfe. Representatives for Wolfe at Creative Arts Agency said Friday that he was also resigning and that his name would be added to the letter, which seemed to contain a hidden political message beyond the ones stated openly. The first initials of the letter’s six main paragraphs spell out “r-e-s-i-s-t.”

Bannon Gets Thumped! Kicked Off of National Security Council

Never really understood what, if any qualifications Steve Bannon had to be the National Security Adviser. Even in the Chumph administration where the qualifications bar is only slightly lower than its standards for truth telling.

Apparently, the folks who are qualified to do that job…Agree.

This is an as-of-yet uncorroborated report out of Bloomberg,

“Bannon Got Cannoned!”

Top Trump adviser Steve Bannon booted off the National Security Council: report

Steve Bannon, the controversial former head of Breitbart News who now serves as the chief political strategist for President Donald Trump, has been removed from his post on the National Security Council.

Bloomberg’s Jennifer Jacobs reports that the NSC was reorganized on Tuesday to remove Bannon, while also “downgrading the role of his Homeland Security Adviser, Tom Bossert.”

The move also puts Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and Marine Corps General Joseph Dunford — the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff — back as “regular attendees” of the NSC’s principals committee.

The decision to reorganize the council was made by Trump’s new national security adviser, Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, according to the Wall Street Journal.

“Susan Rice operationalized the NSC during the last administration. I was put on to ensure that it was de-operationalized. General McMaster has returned the NSC to its proper function,” Bannon said in a statement.

Bannon has long been a controversial figure, as he is a self-described “Leninist” who has attacked not only Democrats, but also members of the Republican establishment.

Breitbart News, his old website, has continued attacking House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), and in particular has been aggressive in its criticism of the House Republicans’ proposed health care plan.

CNN Take the Trash Out – Chump Liar in Chief Kellyanne Conway

About freaking time! How many times does this dumb, lying POS have to appear and be totally humiliated on air?

That isn’t “news” – It’s pulling legs off roaches.

This really should be a trend for any News outlet with any credibility.

CNN considers permanent ban for Kellyanne Conway over ‘serious questions’ about credibility: report

Over the weekend, CNN pointedly turned down an offer from the White House to have Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway appear on its Sunday shows — and a new report claims that might be a permanent arrangement.

According to the New York Times, CNN executives have “serious questions” about Conway’s credibility, as she has consistently pushed what she herself has called “alternative facts,” such as the nonexistent “Bowling Green massacre” that was roundly mocked last week.

The Times notes that media critics such as New York University professor Jay Rosen have called on networks to bar Conway from their shows due to her repeated use of falsehoods, so it’s possible CNN could be just the first network to decline offers to have Conway on their shows.

Stacy Who? Gets Booted From Fox News

After dredging the sewers for Uncle Toms during the run up to the “election”, apparently Faux News has decided to do a Lawn Jockey reduction. First to be disappeared…Stacy Who? Dash. Employment opportunities are looking dimmer than midnight for the next 4 years.

Omarosa better look out too – because if she doesn’t get a job serving coffee in one of those short Maid’s outfits in the Whites Only House… She is next.

Twitter lights up as Stacey Dash is cut from the Fox News lineup

Stacey Dash may continue speaking her mind on politics and the news of the day, but it won’t be for Fox News.

Fox News has decided not to renew Dash’s contract, The Hill reported on Saturday. The network, which recently announced the hire of former U.K. Independence Party head Nigel Farage (“Mr. Brexit,” to Donald Trump), also terminated the contracts of columnist George Will, who left the Republican Party in June, Republican strategist Ed Rollins, journalist Martin Kalb and columnist and radio commentator Cal Thomas.

Dash, the conservative-leaning actress and alumna of Paramus High School most widely known for her role in the 1995 film “Clueless” opposite Alicia Silverstone, joined Fox News as a contributor in 2014. During that time, Dash, who appeared on various Fox programs including “Outnumbered,” often drew the ire of social media. She was criticized for her controversial statements about the Oscars (she rejected a boycott of the ceremony due to lack of diversity in the nominees and later appeared in a Oscars bit as the new director of a minority outreach program, Black History Month (she doesn’t think it should exist) and BET (she doesn’t think it should exist, either).

In 2015, Fox suspended Dash after she used profanity in criticizing an address President Barack Obama delivered in the wake of the San Bernardino shooting. In 2016, Dash suggested that transgender people should go to the bathroom “in the bushes” rather than use bathrooms corresponding to their gender.

Dash’s memoir, “There Goes My Social Life: From Clueless to Conservative,” addressed the advent of her relationship with Fox, which arrived at a good time for her, after she endorsed Mitt Romney for president in 2012 with a highly scrutinized tweet. (Dash said she had voted for Obama in 2008.)

“On the day that I spent my very last dollar,” she wrote, “the Fox check came.”
