Accuracy in Media

She’s been labeled the “Daughter-in-Chief” by the tabloids and, in this case, it appears to be the truth. According to several news accounts that have not been denied or debunked, Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, persuaded President Donald Trump to retain an executive order from the Obama administration that prohibits companies from doing business with the federal government unless they hire and promote open homosexuals and transgendered people.

The so-called “transgendered” are people confused about their “gender identity” who may be in various phases of transition to the opposite sex, in some cases involving gender mutilation and surgery. In short, they are DNA deniers, a category of people considered to be engaged in immoral and perverted conduct by the standards of traditional morality and religion.

On Sunday, Vice President Mike Pence, usually described as a conservative Christian, used the jargon of various sexual minorities, including “Q,” which can mean “Questioning” and/or “Queer,” and sided with the powerful sexual rights lobby that has discovered some clout in the Trump White House. He declared on ABC’s “This Week” that “I think throughout the campaign, President Trump made it clear that discrimination would have no place in our administration. I mean, he was the very first Republican nominee to mention the LGBTQ community at our Republican National Convention and was applauded for it. And I was there applauding with him.”

In another matter related to this expanding assault on traditional religious values and biological differences between the sexes, it is significant that President Trump has not Tweeted his disgust or disdain for the recent decision by the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) to admit girls who claim to be boys.

Traditionally, the BSA has instructed young men and boys in the masculine way of doing things, including engaging in what the Scout Oath calls “morally straight” behavior.

The involvement of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner in the culture war—on the side of the liberal/left lobby—has been a shocking development. A happily-married couple with three children, they are described by The New York Times as the “two most influential social liberals” in President Trump’s inner circle, who had helped “kill a proposed executive order that would have scrapped” the special rights for homosexuals and transgendered in the Obama-era executive order. The proposed executive order would have safeguarded the rights of religious believers opposed to condoning or sanctioning conduct they reject on religious grounds.

Politico had previously reported that while Ivanka and Jared were influential in Trump’s decision to keep the Obama executive order, some conservative Christian groups such as the Family Research Council were hopeful that Vice President Pence would weigh in on the side of those who refuse to condone alternative lifestyles. But based on what Pence said on ABC’s “This Week,” in declaring his own support for alternative lifestyles, this looks like a false hope.

At the same time, it is rumored that President Trump is in fact preparing to issue an executive order promoting religious liberty. But how he can be pro-gay and pro-religious liberty remains to be seen, and is a question on the minds of many conservatives.

At the time that it retained the Obama order on the rights of sexual minorities, the Trump White House issued a statement saying, “President Donald J. Trump is determined to protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBTQ community. President Trump continues to be respectful and supportive of LGBTQ rights, just as he was throughout the election. The executive order signed in 2014, which protects employees from anti-LGBTQ workplace discrimination while working for federal contractors, will remain intact at the direction of President Donald J. Trump.”

However, the 2016 Republican Party platform declared that “Traditional marriage and family, based on marriage between one man and one woman, is the foundation for a free society and has for millennia been entrusted with rearing children and instilling cultural values.”

From all appearances, Ivanka and Jared have a traditional marriage; both have successful careers and are devoted to the conservative religious upbringing of their children. They should understand that the homosexual movement has sought to destroy the concept of traditional marriage and has relentlessly undermined organizations that have attempted to maintain traditional sexual distinctions. The BSA’s decision to admit girls claiming to be boys is just the latest evidence of how private organizations have been pressured to capitulate to the demands of what Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute calls the “sexual subversives.” Higgins writes that their ultimate goal is “the eradication of all public recognition and accommodation of sexual differentiation.”

It looks like Trump will continue the Obama policy in this area.

Regarding the BSA, Todd Starnes of Fox News asked, “…how can the Boy Scouts of America teach ethics and morals when its adult leaders can’t muster the courage to stand morally straight in the face of militant gender revolutionaries?”

Any hope Ivanka Trump has that her support for special rights for sexual minorities will defang radical left opposition to the Trump presidency is proving false. Major department stores such as Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus have dropped her clothing and fashion lines because of feminist objections to her family and to her father’s presidency.

    This is extremely disappointing but not totally unexpected. It highlights what I believed to be the main distinction between Candidate Trump and Candidate Ted Cruz. Many people have been victimized by this policy/executive order. Pence’s taking the LGBTQRSTUV position is especially hard to fathom.

  • Pollos Hermanos

    Who has been victimized by the non discrimination order?

  • John Cunningham

    Please! please! please! People who politic from the Right please keep track of this and the many other assaults by the Cancerous Liberal Left when election time rears it’s ugly head once again in two years.

    Seems like campaigners from the Right have short memories when it comes to outrageous things Liberals say and do. Like when the Liberal Senator from Illinois called the Bush Administration Nazi’s and Communists.

    All the horror and evil things Liberals do seem to float away on the thin air of the airheads who do the campaigning. What isn’t told hardly enough is the moral and ideological civil war going on for the hearts and minds of the People.

    If the evil Left come back and rule again, America and, by extension, the World brought on by Liberals will destroy the World. Liberalism is the one and only thing that can destroy America. Will it?

    This is not surprising. The culture has been totally brainwashed on this issue especially since the SCOTUS decision. And once you had various Christian denominations accepting same-sex marriage as blessed by God all bets were off for those opposed. The only hope we have is if the President comes to the defense of religious freedom as is defined in the first amendment. The LGBTQ community has been greatly empowered and they are not going away. In addition, many Americans support same-sex marriage, etc…This battle has been lost. What we must do now is make hate unacceptable and illegal towards anyone with whom we disagree. Christians should not be persecuted for their beliefs and punished if they say they cannot violate those beliefs. Christians must also never persecute those of the LGBTQ community. We must always treat everyone with love and respect regardless of our differences. However, political sexual ideology should not be part of public education. The way it is being presented in many public schools is biased to one viewpoint and becomes indoctrination and not education. Just as public schools are not permitted to teach religion, they should also not be permitted to indoctrinate students with LGBTQ ideology. These are topics best left to the families and not the public school administrators and teachers. I also hope more studies will be conducted regarding homosexuality and transgenderism. I think pseudo science abounds on these topics. Bottom line…we are ALL going to have to learn to live together despite major differences. No one should be forced to believe something against his or her conscience, and hate and discord must not be acceptable in a truly civilized society.

    Who has been victimized?

    Yes, their influence is a concern because Trump and the GOP might think this is what they have to do to appeal to Millennials 🙁 Just hoping he will still stand up for religious freedom as well. We shall see.

  • Oldchopper

    Disappointing the government continues to interfere with commerce that many times also interferes with ones religious beliefs. Who works for a company is not their business. Another Progressive agenda being pushed on the people.

    This is very disheartening news; unfortunately, Jewish people as a culture, are some of the most morally stupid people, Blessed with the ability to succeed in business. However, unless they confess and become Christians, they will face Judgement and Condemnation.

    We all need to pray for Ivanka and Jared to have their eyes opened and to do what is right and just.

  • Simple enough to understand – – – their “social consciousness” trumps all moral convictions…

  • tkrepel

    So it’s disheartening that LGBT people have the same rights as the rest of us? How do you figure?

    It is the first time that the CRAPEL and I don’t totally disagree on something !!! Usually he is very wrong, and indeed this time he is again , like all libs are , they don’t think straight …. forcing companies to hire LGBTQ people is not the same as giving them the same rights , it gives them MORE RIGHTS , because they are chosen over straight people with same or better qualifications ! That being said, being supportive of LGBTQ people and supporting religious liberties are not mutually exclusive if you keep an opened mind, which usually leftist activists don’t. If you are willing to accept that not participating in a LGBTQ event does not mean that you are anti gay, then maybe people can live with giving some kind of priority to LGBTQ people, even though it is totally wrong and discriminatory !

  • Bruce

    Pandering to Liberals appears to have no “upside” in appeasing liberals, radicals, and militant celebrities, and can only serve to turn off core support from conservatives and Christians. I hope the hell he knows what he’s doing!!!

  • Marsha Thompson

    Forcing people/companies to hire any group is NOT equal rights!!!!

  • Peter

    Trump will prove to be just another step downwards for America, despite the hype. As a Freemason, he is an architect of the NWO. He is just a bunny for the government behind him in the dark, with him in the spotlight. America – you’re fucked. I wish it were not so.

    “Accuracy in media” lol!

    First of all, I don’t know what law that they were talking about in the beginning of this article. But it sure as heck wasn’t the anti-discrimination law that Obama instituted! The anti-desctimiation law that’s in effect applies only to companies that contract with the federal government and it DOES NOT mandate that every contracting company must “promote” LGBTQ people. It isn’t some sort of “rainbow affirmative action,” companies aren’t required to employ gay or trans people. That’s just and absurd, distortion of what it really does. Essentially, this anti-discrimination law does two things. It makes it against the law for government contracting companies to fire an employee just because they’re transgender or gay. It also makes it against the law for those companies to reject or not hire an employee just because they are trans. The law does not require a company to hire an unqualified applicant just because they are trans, and it doesn’t require that they be forced to keep a problemed employee just because they are trans. All the law does, is ensure that gay and trans people won’t be singled out for no other reason than who they are. That’s it!

    Our small town has in its by-laws that the town must hire so much percent of minorities. The way things are going, I bet the town adds that it must also hire so many gays and lesbians. How did 1% of our population get so powerful? You can thank Obama and his liberal administration. Do not think of me as outdated–I support anyone qualified to fill the job. I have friends and family members that are gay and love and support them without question. They all have college degrees, some Ph.D’s, with excellent jobs as educators, financial analysts, etc. They can hold their own without anyone ordering them to hire them. Remember, this is 2017. They LBGTQ does not need anyone wiping their noses!

    Since America has inserted a Black Operational Government into our system of government in the early seventies that was made up of electronic and psychological experiments as reported by Bob Woodward – Homosexuality has increased 1 Billion percent in America !
    The more these companies talk about equal rights , the more they talk about hating the Jews and how every one else should hate the Jews. Oh the hate !
    The more these companies talk about the Constitution = the more they keep trying to join and act in solidarity with the EU.
    Should California become a Sanctuary State – Heck Yeah ! I’ve seen skid row at 5 am and watching a million people wake up on the road at one time was really cool !
