Trump Signs Executive Order to Counter Own Policy of Separating Families at Border

Trump Signs Executive Order to Counter Own Policy of Separating Families at Border

Donald Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday to solve the issue of family separation at the border, which his administration created and enforced while keeping in place key components of the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy of prosecuting illegal border crossings along the U.S-Mexico border.  While the administration will continue prosecuting crimes of “improper entry”, the administration will “maintain family unity, including by detaining alien families together where appropriate and consistent with law and available resources,” according to the order’s text

“We are keeping families together and this will solve that problem. At the time we are keeping a very powerful border and it continues to be a zero tolerance, we have zero tolerance for people that enter our country illegally,” Trump said. He added falsely that no one has had the “political courage” to take care of the issue which he claims has gone on for over 60 years.

In actuality the family separations at the border began earlier this year, when Trump’s own Attorney General Jeff Sessions under orders from the White Hoouse mandated that all people caught crossing into the U.S. illegally be referred for criminal prosecution. Under that policy, adults were sent to jail under the auspices of the Department of Homeland Security, while children have been held in facilities run by the Office of Refugee Resettlement. Since the policy was implemented, over 2,000 children have been separated, according to government figures.

The House is slated to vote Thursday on two immigration bills, one of which appears doomed while the other has only a moderate prospect of passing. Lawmakers in general are not remotely close to a consensus on what an immigration solution might actually look like.

Trump’s EO does nothing to alleviate the suffering of children already separated from their parents, who already may be deported. And if you think this government is in any way prepared for the massive task of reuniting children with their parents who are still awaiting court proceedings and being held in custody, well, I have a lovely resort in Mexico I can get for you cheap.

Trans Activist Confronts Caitlyn Jenner At Trans Chorus Event: “You’re a fucking fraud!” – Video

Transgender activist and Editor in chief of Wear Your VoiceAshlee Marie Preston had some choice words for Caityn Jenner and those in the transgender community who try to protect her at a Trans Chorus of Los Angeles performance of “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, which was sponsored in part by a cash donation from Jenner.

Jenner tried to greet Preston with a hug and kiss but Preston moved away..

“It’s really fucked up that you are here,” Preston told a stunned Jenner. “Some people may be afraid to confront you for being here, but I am not.”

“You are directly responsible for what has happened with transgender soldiers and the military. I am not afraid to say it to you, I am not. I am not afraid.” she said.

At that point members of Caitlyn’s “entourage” and Trans Chorus’ board, co-chair Dena Williams, tried to prevent the situation from escalating. “We can end this,” she said. But Preston pushed back at them. “You are complicit! Taking her money…makes you complicit. It goes against the mission (of the chorus), Dena!,” said Preston.

Caitlyn stood  and said nothing during the encounter and refused to leave when her entourage and security urged her to.

“We are the ones impacted by the choices that you make…it’s not okay,” Preston, animatedly told Williams “It’s not ok, it’s not ok,” she repeated.

At that point Jenner  said “You don’t know me.” Preston expressed rage that Jenner was glossing over a well known record of support for Donald Trump and his policies. “Yes I do! We all do! You are a fraud! ”

Preston then confronted Williams: “I thought you were better than that. I’m really disappointed, really disappointed.”

Preston recently resigned Trans Chorus of Los Angeles in protest, citing “executive decisions such as the one made tonight,” she told The Los Angeles Blade

Grand Jury Indicts Totally Not Gay GOP Pin-Up Boy Ex-Congressman Aaron Schock On 24 Counts Of Fraud


“Totally not gay”Aaron Schock, the former Republican pin-up boy representative from Illinois whose taste for first-class travel and a “Downton Abbey”-themed office design led to questions about his judgment and adherence to spending rules, was indicted on Thursday by a federal grand jury on 24 counts, including wire fraud and theft of government funds.

The indictment came after his lawyer, George J. Terwilliger, said in a statement that the charges were expected and described them as a “misuse” of prosecutorial power by the Justice Department.

Mr. Schock, who resigned his House seat in 2015 amid a government inquiry, said in the statement, “I intend to not only prove these allegations false, but in the process, expose this investigation for what it was.”

He added: “Neither I nor anyone else intentionally did anything wrong. As I have said before, we might have made errors among a few of the thousands and thousands of financial transactions we conducted, but they were honest mistakes — no one intended to break any law.”

chock, now 35, resigned in March 2015 amid questions about his financial practices, including accusations of spending tens of thousands of dollars from taxpayer-funded accounts on office renovations, using taxpayer and campaign funds on private jets and concerts and failing to report extravagant gifts on his annual financial disclosure forms as required by House ethics rules.

The other charges includes false statements, filing false federal income tax returns, falsification of Federal Election Commission filings and mail fraud.

The statement from his lawyer said that Mr. Schock had never “seen ‘Downton Abbey’ and did not request an office designed like it.”

Caitlyn Jenner Vows to Take On The 'Radical Rainbow Mafia'

Even Though One Day She Will Have To “Pee”, Caitlyn Jenner Says She Is Still Voting Republican

Caitlyn Jenner Halloween Costume

Despite the fact that one day she might need to “pee” in a public place.  Caitlyn Jenner says she was “unconvinced” by Saturday’s Democratic debate and remains committed to voting Republican in 2016 The Los Angeles Times reports:

Caitlyn Jenner, who as Bruce Jenner was a Drake Relays champion in 1976, was in Des Moines visiting the university campus with her reality show producers. Although a Republican, she asked for a ticket to the debate. The request went all the way up to CBS News President David Rhodes. “Our person told her person that we don’t have any tickets left, which happens to be factual.” Rhodes said. (Jenner told The Times that she did not get into the debate hall but that she was able to watch it on television with students on the Drake University campus. She said she still planned to vote Republican. “They didn’t convince me,” she said.

Also in the news the Republican Party has announced that they plan to refer to Caitlyn as a man. “He didn’t convince us.” they said.

Voting for a party that calls her a child molester & wants to execute her just for living. Good job Jenner. She is the Trans equivalent of a House Uncle Tom-asina and its about time that everyone sees that and stops bowing to her size 13 heels.

Head of ‘Gay Conversion’ Therapy Group JONAH Testifies In Lawsuit: “I was convicted of fraud”


Arthur Goldberg, the director of a anti-gay “nonprofit” conversion therapy group called JONAH (Jews Offering New Alternatives for Healing) acknowledged on the witness stand Monday that the group claims a “success” rate of 65 to 75 percent to turn gay men to straight even though it doesn’t keep its own statistics and relies on anecdotal evidence from counselors. 

The 75-year-old Goldberg acknowledged that he believes homosexuality is a spiritual disorder and a condition caused by emotional wounds occurring in childhood and adolescence that can be cured through a “gender-affirming” process and that in emails and writings on the group’s website JONAH claims that roughly two-thirds of men who go through the program are “successfully healed,” stating that he relies on anecdotal evidence from counselors affiliated with JONAH to reach those numbers.

“It’s an estimate,” he said under questioning from plaintiffs’ attorney Lina Bensman

Goldberg was also pressed to admit that the American Psychotherapy Association revoked two certifications it granted him because on his applications he failed to mention that he had been convicted of fraud and conspiracy years ago and spent time in prison. Pressed by Bensman, he also said he has never been a licensed counselor but has referred to himself as one in writings and emails and has had input on some of JONAH’s programs.

Goldberg testified on the second day of a trial involving four young men who underwent the treatment and sued the group.  His attorneys have argued that their client’s methods have been shown to be successful and that the plaintiffs didn’t complain or ask for their money back at the time they left the program but only did so after being contacted by activists seeking to shut JONAH down. They also say the men didn’t remain in the program for the two to four years JONAH claims it takes to achieve full conversion.

One of the plaintiffs, Benjamin Unger, testified last week that one of JONAH’s methods involved using a tennis racket to beat a pillow that was meant to represent his mother, who, he said counselors told him, was responsible for his homosexuality. He also spoke of being urged to spend more time naked with his father.


GoFundMe Removes Baronelle Stutzman/Flowers By Arlene’s Fundraising Page – And We Helped!



On Saturday we reported that shortly after Aaron Klein and his wife Melissa Klein of Sweet Cakes by Melissa were fined $135,000.00 dollars by the Oregon Bureau of Labor for breaking the states anti-gay discrimination law by refusing to bake a cake for a same-sex couple the “Christian” couple set up a GoFundMe page to to raise money to cover the fine.  Before it reached its goal GoFundMe rightfully pulled the page for violating its Terms and Conditions.

Via GoFundMe:

“After careful review by our team, we have found the “Support Sweet Cakes By Melissa” campaign to be in violation of our Terms and Conditions. The money raised thus far will still be made available for withdrawal. While a different campaign was recently permitted for a pizzeria in Indiana, no laws were violated and the campaign remained live. However, the subjects of the “Support Sweet Cakes By Melissa” campaign have been formally charged by local authorities and found to be in violation of Oregon state law concerning discriminatory acts. Accordingly, the campaign has been disabled.”

Seeing this Back2Stonewall and it’s followers  contacted GoFundMe to report another fraudulent page.  That of Baronelle Stutzman  the owner of Arlene’s Flowers in Richland, Washington and whom the right-wing has turned into Grandma Maryr because she broke Washington states anti-discrimination law and  refused to put together a flower arrangement for a gay couple’s wedding in 2013.

Stutzman, who was ordered to pay a whopping  a $1000 fine, plus $1 for court costs and fees has been raising right-wing welfare on GFM for the past there weeks and had raised over $170 thousand dollars.

That is until today when after being contacted by this website GoFundMe removed her page and cancelled her fundraiser.

I want to thank all of our readers and followers on Facebook that reached out to GoFundMe over the weekend.   No one should be able to profit from bigotry and hatred.

Especially when they are so cowardly to hide behind a false face of religion.

Speaking of which…….

UPDATE: GoFundMe Removes Dieseltec’s Money Beg Page For Fraud – Michigan Auto Shop Owner: We Reserve The Right To Refuse To Lube Up Gays

racist autoshop



UPDATE: 04/17/2015

The GoFundMe page that suddenly appeared for Dieseltec right after Brian Klawiter did his interview with WOOD-TV has been removed from the GoFundMe site by administrators for FRAUD.

It has also been reported that Klawiter himself has a criminal past, and refused to have his business licensed.

Criminal past, fraud, and an unlicensed business.  Not there’s a REAL KKK-hristian.


The crazy fake” Christians”are crawling out of the woodwork now that they have figured out that their hatred and bigotry might get some publicity and perhaps a GoFundMe page worth a couple of thousands of dollars.

The owner of an auto shop in Grandville, Michigan has come out of his “hate shack” and said he will give discounts to customers who bring guns into his store but to refuse service to LGBT people.

Brian Klawiter, the owner of Dieseltec Auto Repair  o in Grandville, MI posted the statement to his company’s Facebook page  Tuesday because he says the voices of those who have Christian, conservative values are often overshadowed by those who do not.

The post in question starts with “Enough is enough.”

The line that’s drawing the most conversation is the one that addresses “openly gay” individuals. “I would not hesitate to refuse service to an openly gay person or persons. Homosexuality is wrong, period.  If you want to argue this fact with me then I will put your vehicle together with all bolts and no nuts and you can see how that works.”

“I want to have a voice about this,” Klawiter told 24 Hour News 8 Wednesday. “I want to be heard about this… It’s challenging to decide to say I’m on the opposing side of what’s seen as the popular view.”  “Apparently if you are white (or close to it), you have a job, go to church, and own a gun…That translates into racist, privileged, bigot… Our rights as conservative Americans are being squashed more and more everyday.”

Shortly after the interview aired a GoFundMe Page miraculously appeared out of nowhere.

You can read KKKlawaiters full post below.


The complete Facebook post from Klawiter:


“Enough is enough.

“Our rights as conservative Americans are being squashed more and more everyday. Apparently if you are white (or close to it), you have a job, go to church, and own a gun… That translates into racists, privileged, bigot, conspiracy theorist. Too many of us say nothing. Well, freedom of speech isn’t just for Liberals, THEY are the ones that need to learn to “co-exist”, THEY are the ones who need to WORK to be “equal”

“Therefore, in the spirit of freedom (whats left of it) and MY right to operate MY business as I see fit:

“Guns ARE allowed at DIESELTEC, so much so in fact that we will offer a discount if you bring in your gun. (“On duty” cops are excluded because thats not their gun, thats my gun bought with my money, off duty absolutely!)

“I am a Christian. My company will be run in a way that reflects that. Dishonesty, thievery, immoral behavior, etc. will not be welcomed at MY place of business. (I would not hesitate to refuse service to an openly gay person or persons. Homosexuality is wrong, period. If you want to argue this fact with me then I will put your vehicle together with all bolts and no nuts and you can see how that works.)

“We, as a team, work hard for whats ours. We are not protected by unions or contracts. We absolutely MUST provide our customers with a service level that would make them come back or tell their friends about us. We don’t have a “right”, and we are not “entitled” to our pay. We must EARN it.

“I am not racists, you are for assuming I am, however, I am really quick to judge… if it acts like a duck, and quacks like a duck…

“It IS a free country and I support your right to your opinion, that being said, if you don’t like what I have to say I reserve that same right to tell you to go cry to your momma (cause your daddy would probably smack ya’, better yet, yes, go tell your dad.)

Judge That Struck Down Michigan’s Same Sex Marriage Ban Calls Mark Regnerus A Hack

Mark Regnerus

U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman (appointed to the federal bench in 1988 by Republican demon President Ronald Reagan) who this weekend  struck down the state of Michigan’s marriage discrimination amendment as unconstitutional had some choice words for “expert witness” Mark Regnerus 

Friedman slams Regnerus in his ruling going so far as to use quotation marks around the word “study” when referring to Regnerus’s right-wing-funded, discredited New Family Structures Study that claimed same-sex couples make inferior parents:

The court finds Regnerus’s testimony entirely unbelievable and not worthy of serious consideration. The evidence adduced at trial demonstrated that his 2012 ‘study’ was hastily concocted at the behest of a third-party funder, which found it ‘essential that the necessary data be gathered to settle the question in the forum of public debate about what kinds of family arrangement are best for society’ and which ‘was confident that the traditional understanding of marriage will be vindicated by this study.'”…

While Regnerus maintained that the funding source did not affect his impartiality as a researcher, the Court finds this testimony unbelievable. The funder clearly wanted a certain result, and Regnerus obliged.

Whatever Regnerus may have found in this ‘study,’ he certainly cannot purport to have undertaken a scholarly research effort to compare the outcomes of children raised by same-sex couples with those of children raised by heterosexual couples. It is no wonder that the NFSS has been widely and severely criticized by other scholars, and that Regnerus’s own sociology department at the University of Texas has distanced itself from the NFSS in particular and Dr. Regnerus’s views in general.” – U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman

That sound you hear is the final “flush” of any further “expert testimony” and any possible legitimate research career for Mark Regnerus

GOP and Tea Party FAIL! – IRS “Targeted” Liberal Groups As Well

Republicans suckFor the past week we’ve been watching the Tea Party and GOP create a false “political scandal” claiming that Tea Party groups were unfairly scrutinized by the IRS just because they were lunatics conservative when they were applying for tax-exempt status as 501(c)(4) (Which if the IRS REALLY obeyed its own rules they would NEVER be eligible for anyway.)

But now its coming to light that the Tea Party wasn’t being “targeted” and the IRS was just doing its job.

Bloomberg is now reporting that Democratic-leaning groups faced similar inquiries from the IRS.

The Internal Revenue Service, under pressure after admitting it targeted anti-tax Tea Party groups for scrutiny in recent years, also had its eye on at least three Democratic-leaning organizations seeking nonprofit status.

One of those groups, Emerge America, saw its tax-exempt status denied, forcing it to disclose its donors and pay some taxes. None of the Republican groups have said their applications were rejected.

Progress Texas, another of the organizations, faced the same lines of questioning as the Tea Party groups from the same IRS office that issued letters to the Republican-friendly applicants. A third group, Clean Elections Texas, which supports public funding of campaigns, also received IRS inquiries.

The false sense of outrage from the right obscures the simple fact many of the applicants really aren’t “social welfare organizations” under Section 501(c)(4) and are more like political organizations that are required to disclose their donors.  Nonetheless, none of the Tea Party applicants were denied c4 status but a Democratic group was.   Plus, most of the applicants were from Tea Party-affiliated organizations; thus, greater numbers of them were given scrutiny.

These scandals this these bogus reports of targets say more about the sad state of the GOP, the death rattle of the Tea Party and the unprofessionalism of the media than they do about anything else.

Wayne Besen Exposes ‘Ex-Gay’ Poster Boy John Paulk As Fraud….. Again – He’s A HOMO!

John and Anne Paulk were the king and queen of the so-called “ex-gay” industry. Anne an “ex-lesbian” had appeared in the Religious Right’s 1998 “Truth in Love” campaign with a full-page ad in the New York Times headlined, “I’m living proof that Truth can set you free.”and her husband, John, a “ex-gay”  was the founder of Focus on the Family’s Love Won Out program and the Chairman of Exodus International. John and appeared numerous television shows like 60 Minutes,  telling the world about how he prayed away the his own gay and married his “ex-lesbian” wife.

But on Sept. 19, 2000 that lie abruptly ended when investigative journalist Wayne Besen founder of Truth Wins Out photographed John in Mr. P’s, a notorious Washington, DC gay bar.

On September 19, 2003 while on a speaking tour, Paulk was identified as hustling drinks and flirting at Mr. P’s, a Washington DC neighborhood gay bar . While identifying himself as “John Clint”, a patron contacted Wayne Beeson, When Beeson arrived at the bar forty minutes later and confronted Paulk, he denied who he was, exited the bar and found a photographer outside to document his leaving the bar. When confronted by Beeson about the incident and the photographs, Paulk admitted being in the bar, but stated that he didn’t know it gay bar and had simply stopped in for a moment to use the restroom.


James Dobson on Focus on the Family radio, where the group claimed that Paulk had simply “slipped” into temporary sin. On the show, John plead for forgiveness and claimed that he had made a mistake by walking into “Satan’s Trap.”

Paulk family and his family moved to Portland, Oregon a few years later where John started a new life as a chef and opened Mezzaluna Catering, which featured a staff of highly attractive male models. *Ehhhm*

But in 2010 John slipped back into his media whoring Ex-gay ways and spoke at a 2010 Evergreen “ex-gay” conference.

Focus on the Family’ still claimed that despite the Mr. P’s incident, the Paulk family was an example of an “ex-gay” success story and that John had returned to heterosexuality.

Besen recently picked up his investigation into the Paulis once again.  It urns out that John is STILL gay and Anne is still selling a bogus story of family bliss to Focus on the Family who is misleading its members by misrepresenting the facts about their “ex-gay” poster-family.

Said  Dan Burrell, a former employee of John Paulks:

“He said I fit a certain aesthetic image that he was looking for and asked me if I wanted to work for him,” said Burrell. “It didn’t feel right…my instinct was telling me that something wasn’t right. I just had to find out and experience it.  He definitely was interested in men. (He) Was interested in having a relationship with me. I didn’t want a relationship with him. I wanted to simply work for him. But not be in a relationship with him.”

Wayne Besen explains:

The purpose of this investigation is to have the Religious Right stop falsely portraying the Paulk family as a model for sexual conversion. To ensure that no products that contain Paulk propaganda — which includes books and videos — are sold to innocent families, and to halt the fantasy that is now being peddled by Anne at the Restored Hope Network.

We hope that this investigation will entice the Paulk family to stop lying and for John to finally live openly and honestly. But, these are the Paulks and integrity is not something that appears to be in their DNA. Indeed,the consumer fraud continues with Anne scheduled to speak March 15-16 at Janet Boynes Ministries “Power of Change” conference. No doubt, she will try to win converts by telling them about her wholesome and “healed” family.”

Everyone of these ex-gay frauds and grifters must be exposed and discredited.  It’s the only way to stop the lies that is harmful to so many in our community and has led to psychological trauma and in some cases even death to those these lies are peddled too.

Keep up the great work Wayne.
