Trump-Ukraine House impeachment inquiry to 
start 'open hearings' Nov. 13,
scumbag-Schiff says
By Brooke Singman 
{ } ~ The House Intelligence Committee will hold its first open hearings next week as part of the formal impeachment inquiry into President Trump... featuring current and former officials with knowledge of the Ukraine controversy. “Next week, the House Intelligence Committee will hold its first open hearings as part of the impeachment inquiry,” Intelligence Committee Chairman scumbag-Adam Schiff, D-Calif., tweeted Wednesday. “On Wednesday, November 13, 2019, we will hear from William Taylor and George Kent,” scumbag-Schiff continued. “On Friday, November 15, 2019, we will hear from Marie Yovanovitch.”“More to come,” he added. The first public hearing will feature Taylor, the acting U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, who already testified behind closed doors before congressional investigators that the president pushed Ukraine to investigate election interference, former Vice President loose lips liar-Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden and their Ukrainian dealings—and that he was told U.S. military aid and a White House meeting were used as leverage to get a public announcement from Kiev that the probes were underway. Kent, the deputy assistant Secretary of State, also will appear with Taylor. Kent testified behind closed doors last month, and told the committees that he had concerns about Hunter Biden’s role on the board of Ukrainian natural gas firm, Burisma Holdings, in 2015, but was rebuffed by the former vice president’s staff, which said the office was preoccupied with Beau Biden’s cancer battle. Meanwhile, next Friday, Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, will appear in a public setting. She testified last month behind closed doors as well, telling lawmakers that Ukraine told her about Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s campaign to oust her from her post in the administration. Yovanovitch was pushed out of her job in May on Trump’s orders...  
Leading Democrats Call 
for Conditioning Military Aid to Israel
by Noah Pollak 
{ } ~ Three leading Democratic presidential candidates recently endorsed a new policy regarding U.S. military aid to Israel... It should be conditioned on Israel embracing policies toward the Palestinians favored by American progressives. At the J Street conference last week, Sen. commie-Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) demanded that Israel "fundamentally change" its approach to terrorist-controlled Gaza, adding, "I think it is fair to say that some U.S. military aid to Israel should go right now into humanitarian aid in Gaza." Israeli officials believe such moves would enable Hamas to import more weapons and lead to another war. South Bend, Ind., mayor Pete Buttigieg called for cutting aid if Israel annexes the West Bank, which Israel has no plans to do. Sen. Elizabeth dinky/liar-Warren (D., Mass.) said military aid should be cut if Israel is "moving in the opposite direction" of the "two-state solution," which most progressives believe Israel is doing. None of the candidates announced demands on the Palestinians. The statements show the extent to which anti-Israel sentiment has spread from progressive activists to the Democratic Party mainstream. The calls for aid cuts are at odds with the longstanding strategic rationale for military aid to Israel, which has never been intended to promote peace with the Palestinians or the two-state solution.  U.S. aid largely takes the form of a credit that Israel must spend in the U.S. market, buying aircraft and arms from American defense companies, and long predates the concept of a two-state solution or peace process. It is concerned with promoting the broader U.S. interest in regional peace and security. From the 1940s through the 1973 Yom Kippur war, Israel fended for itself almost entirely without U.S. military aid. It was this absence of superpower backing that enticed Arab states to believe that small, vulnerable Israel could be defeated on the battlefield—that period was marked by state vs. state wars whose effects rippled outward from the Middle East and harmed the United States. These wars threatened to draw in Cold War rivals, and in 1973 the defeated Arab states imposed an oil embargo that damaged the U.S. economy...   
How Putin Outfoxed Trump, Pence and Erdogan
by Malcolm Lowe
{ } ~ On October 17, brandishing President Donald Trump's threat to destroy the Turkish economy, US Vice President Mike Pence visited Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan... Feigning a spirit of compromise, Erdogan agreed on a memorandum with Pence that effectively gave Erdogan the green light to complete his ethnic cleansing of the Syrian Kurds. On October 22, Erdogan went to visit Russian President Vladimir Putin. This time, Erdogan feigned full satisfaction with a joint memorandum that limited his ethnic cleansing to an Arab-majority stretch of Syrian territory adjacent to the Turkish border, where few Kurds live anyway, while conceding the protection of all other Syrian Kurds to Putin. Trump claimed the entire credit for this outcome. But in reality it was the culmination of a scheme that Putin had been planning since at least January 2019, when he promoted a meeting between representatives of the Syrian Kurds and of the Assad regime. In short, the two meetings ended with the US administration claiming its strategic wisdom precisely as it surrendered its former substantial influence in Syria and established Russian supremacy in Syria. Before we examine the details, however, a brief geography lesson is needed. The idea of building a Berlin-Baghdad Railway originated in the late nineteenth century when Syria and Iraq were parts of the Ottoman Empire. The project gained impetus from German-Turkish cooperation in the years leading up to World War I, when work began on various stretches of the route. Although the stretches were not all linked up until 1940, by World War I a stretch did run from Çobanbey in the west to Nusaybin the classical Nisibis in the east. After the war, Turkey was deprived of all its Arab territories. Most of the west-to-east border between the new Republic of Turkey and the French Mandate for Syria was determined to run along the Syrian side of that stretch of railway...
Russia Captures Advanced 
Israeli Missile Interceptor in Syria
{ } ~ An advanced Israeli surface-to-air missile that was fired from the David's Sling formerly known as the Magic Wand missile system was given to Russia by Syria... when it was found intact after the rocket did not explode on contact, according to Russian media sources. The rocket was reportedly fired on July 23, 2018, and Syrian forces that were dispatched to the scene found the missile intact after it sustained minor damage from impact. The missile was then taken to a Syrian-Russian base where it was transferred to Moscow for further research. David’s Sling was developed by Rafael Advanced Defense Systems and American defense contractor Raytheon. The system is designed to intercept enemy planes, drones, medium-to long-range rockets and cruise missiles and the newest generation of tactical ballistic missiles at low altitude. The system forms the middle layer of air defense systems between the Iron Dome and the Arrow 2 and Arrow 3 missile defense systems. Russian media reports quoted Chinese news agency Sina saying that the missile was taken by Russia for “reverse engineering.”  
U.S. Imposes New Sanctions on Officials 
Tied to Iran’s Supreme Leader
by Tzvi Kahn
{ } ~ The United States on Monday sanctioned Iran’s Armed Forces General Staff (AFGS) and nine individuals responsible for implementing the extremist policies... both at home and abroad – of Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The new designations send a clear message that the Trump administration remains committed to imposing maximum pressure on Tehran to counter not only its aggression abroad but also its repression at home. The sanctions come on the 40th anniversary of the seizure by Iranian militants of the U.S. embassy in Tehran, where they took dozens of personnel hostage for 444 days. In a ceremony to mark the occasion, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo noted that Iran still continues to hold U.S. hostages today, underscoring the continuity of Iranian policy over the past four decades. Pompeo also announced a new $20 million reward for information leading to the return of former FBI agent Robert Levinson, who disappeared in Iran in 2007. The new sanctions target some of the bloodiest figures in the regime. Ebrahim Raisi, the head of Iran’s judiciary, played a key role in the 1988 massacre of thousands of political opponents, serving on a four-member “Death Commission” that presided over the execution of inmates at Evin Prison, Iran’s most notorious jail, as well as Gohardasht Prison. Today, as head of the judiciary, Raisi leads Iran’s kangaroo court system, which has executed, imprisoned, and tortured countless political prisoners. Ali Akbar Velayati, a senior advisor to Khamenei, was a mastermind of the 1994 suicide bombing of a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, which killed 85 people, including a five-year-old boy. Velayati served as Iran’s foreign minister at the time of the attack. In recent years, he has helped Tehran extend lines of credit to the regime in Syria, making him complicit in Bashar al-Assad’s atrocities. Brigadier General Hossein Dehghan, a military aide to Khamenei, served as the commander of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) forces in Syria and Lebanon in 1983 when Hezbollah, an Iranian proxy, bombed an American military compound in Beirut, killing 241 U.S. service members...   
Transgenderism, Child Abuse, and Medical Malpractice
Arnold Ahlert:  “During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.” —attributed to George Orwell

Most Americans would be surprised to know the phrase, “first do no harm,” is not part of the Hippocratic Oath. It dates to a mid-19th century medical text, and is attributed to Dr. Thomas Sydenham, a 17th century English physician. They’d probably be even more surprised that while some medical schools ask their graduates to abide by the Oath, other schools use a different pledge — or no pledge at all.

What wouldn’t surprise Americans in the least? As columnist Melissa Bailey revealed in 2016, “Some medical school classes have revised their oaths to reflect their personal values.” She cites the oath used by incoming Harvard Medical students, which reads: “We promise to bear witness to historical injustices that continue to unfold for marginalized communities.”

This is no accident. In 2015, for the first time in nearly 25 years, the Association of American Medical Colleges — which is one-half of the only government-approved accrediting entity for U.S. medical schools — revised the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) in such a way as to fundamentally alter the way medical schools assess their applicants.

The leader of this change was Dr. Darrell Kirch, president and CEO of the AAMC. “Kirch often insists that social justice is the neglected core tenet of medical ethics; in a 2015 essay, he praised the White Coats for Black Lives movement, a medical-student organization inspired by Black Lives Matter, for ‘sparking dialogue rather than division’ by ‘staging on-campus die-ins,’” explains columnist Devorah Goldman. “White Coats for Black Lives lobbies, among other things, for the creation of ‘national medical school curricular standards’ that would mandate the teaching of ‘structural racism’ and ‘unconscious racial bias’ in medical schools.”

In an interview that same year, Kirch stated that his greater goal with regard to the MCAT was to test “not just what students know but how they think.”

Translation: medical decisions must now be informed by “woke” political considerations.

This nonsense has also infected the American Psychological Association (APA). For the first time ever, the APA determined this year that “traditional masculinity — marked by stoicism, competitiveness, dominance and aggression — is, on the whole, harmful.”

Thus, clinicians are advised to be aware of their own bias and face the reality that “power, privilege, and sexism work both by conferring benefits to men and by trapping them in narrow roles.”

What’s not harmful? The transgender agenda. In 2012, the organization removed the term “gender identity disorder” from its directory of mental illnesses, reclassifying it as “gender dysphoria.” Today, the Treatment section of the APA website recommends that gender dysphoria should be addressed by “counseling, cross-sex hormones, puberty suppression and gender reassignment surgery” — for adults.

What about children? Political waffling. “A child’s treatment typically involves a multi-disciplinary team of health care professionals, which may include a pediatrician, a psychiatrist, other mental health professionals, a pediatric endocrinologist (specialists in hormone conditions in children) and an advocate,” the APA website states. “Treatment may focus primarily on affirming psychological support, understanding feelings and coping with distress, and giving children a safe space to articulate their feelings. For many children the feelings do not continue into adolescence and adulthood.”

“Many” children? According to the American College of Pediatricians “as many as 98% of gender confused boys and 88% of gender confused girls eventually accept their biological sex after naturally passing through puberty.” Feelings? “No one is born with a gender,” the ACP asserts. “Everyone is born with a biological sex. Gender (an awareness and sense of oneself as male or female) is a sociological and psychological concept; not an objective biological one.”

It’s far worse than that. Gender has become a political  term. One so removed from biological and chromosomal reality that children in the UK are being taught there are more than one hundred “gender identities,” and The Royal College of General Practitioners recognizes six: male, female, “gender-neutral,” “nonbinary,” “gender-fluid,” and “gender-queer.”

All well and good save for one inconvenient reality: If one undergoes gender-reassignment surgery — arguably the most drastic capitulation to gender dysphoria — one gets only two choices: man or woman.

Sadly, “man and woman” now includes boy and girl. In the latest debacle, Austin, Texas, Judge Kim Cooks of the 255th district, who won an unopposed general election in 2018, has essentially remained agnostic regarding whether or not seven-year-old James Younger should undergo the chemical castration necessary to satisfy his physician mother’s wishes to turn him into a girl named “Luna” — despite the largely under-publicized reality that James has a twin brother named Jude.

Cooks issued joint custody to both Dr. Anne Georgulas and father Jeffrey Younger, who is desperate to prevent his son from getting puberty blockers. Cooks also issued a gag order to both parents so they cannot speak to the press about the case — meaning Younger’s “Save James” website will have to be shut down.

Ironically, Cooks is the voice of reason here. She overruled an 11-1 Dallas jury’s verdict that awarded sole custody of James to his mother.

James Younger is hardly an outlier in what amounts to a monstrous collaboration between a politically compromised medical community and ideologically addled parents. As the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) website reveals, doctors are also performing double mastectomies on healthy 13-year-old girls, even as it admits professional guidelines “lack clarity … because there are no data documenting the effect of chest surgery on minors.”

Puberty blockers? Although they are championed by the Endocrine Society and the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Food and Drug Administration isn’t on board due to the inconvenient reality that the agency has recorded more than 41,000 adverse events reported with their use between 2013 and June 30, 2019 — including 6,370 deaths.

How much more “woke” can the medical community get? As woke as society at large will let them, it seems. A society at large that apparently prefers avoiding accusations of bigotry to the point where it abides the teaching of the transgender agenda in elementary schools, “men” getting pregnant, biological males  dominating women’s sports — and what amounts to the mutilation of physically healthy children.
 “From 1933 to 1945, Nazi Germany carried out a campaign to ‘cleanse’ German society of individuals viewed as biological threats to the nation’s ‘health,’” the Holocaust Encyclopedia  recounts. “The Nazis enlisted the help of physicians and medically trained geneticists, psychiatrists, and anthropologists to develop racial health policies.”

In modern-day America, the Rainbow Mafia has enlisted the same cadre of professionals to develop gender-health policies. And much like their Nazi forebears, they will attempt to crush anyone who dares to defy their morally bankrupt agenda. Thus, calling the surgical and chemical transition of children the parental child abuse and medical malpractice it is truly has become a “revolutionary act.”

Let the revolution begin — in earnest.   ~The Patriot Post
