‘Hundreds of kids harmed’ by Missouri gender clinic
This was bound to happen, and now the payment is coming due:
A transgender center in St. Louis, Mo., is under investigation by the state attorney general for “harming hundreds of children each year.”
In last week’s Smackdown, we highlighted the revelations of whistleblower Jamie Reed, a former clinic employee, who told investigators about the harmful transgender treatments children receive at the clinic, often without parental consent.
The click at St. Louis Children’s Hospital has been using “experimental drugs on children, distributing puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones without individualized assessment, and even giving children these life-altering drugs without parental consent,” said Andrew Bailey, Missouri attorney general.
“We take this evidence seriously and are thoroughly investigating to make sure children are not harmed by individuals who may be more concerned with a radical social agenda than the health of children,” he added.
Good for Bailey, and we applaud Reed, the whistleblower, who lost her job because she expressed concern for the safety of the children.
But this horrifying outcome is like something out of a mad-scientist horror film, and there were bound to be consequences for this behavior.
Unfortunately, the children are paying the price.
These macabre gender treatments have “led children to attempt suicide,” but “the center never discontinues prescribing cross-sex hormones, no matter how much those drugs are harming the child,” said the attorney general.
What’s more, the center is accused of illegally billing state taxpayers to fund these unethical medical experiments on children.
First, they harm the kids, and maybe for life, then they present their parents with the bill. What a racket.
The investigation has also revealed that doctors from the clinic advised teachers to “affirm” an entire group of fifth graders – ages 10 and 11 – who showed up to the clinic en masse asking to be transitioned from female to male.
Instead of questioning the obvious group-think dynamic the little girls were experiencing, clinic officials recommended “as much support and discussion as possible around their gender exploration.”
“The best we can do is affirm, validate, and allow for exploration,” one of the clinic staff members, Dr. Sarah Garwood, advised.
Since all of these teens are too young to consent to these evil treatments, perhaps the staff and mad scientists at the St. Louis gender clinic should be forced to undergo the same treatments. Let’s see if they like being “affirmed and validated” like their young victims.
Your Covid vax status is monitored by Big Brother
Big Brother is monitoring you … specifically your Covid vaccination status.
U.S. medical codes now have some new ones to identify patients as unvaccinated or partially vaccinated.
As you might guess, our Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are behind these new codes. The CDC even admits the purpose is “to track people who are not immunized or only partially immunized.
Our impotent CDC is incapable of controlling and preventing disease, so why is it in the business of amassing a database of citizens refusing the jab?
This new coding system is being revealed as Moderna admitted this week that their vaccine is less likely to stimulate the immune system than the flu shot. And the flu shot is notoriously ineffective even on a good day. Moreover, the Covid vaccine also has far higher rates of side effects and serious adverse events, including death, than the flu shot.
One doctor, Harvey Risch, professor emeritus of epidemiology at Yale School of Public Health, expressed concern over the new vaccine tracking data.
“They’re treating non-vaccination as if this is a hazardous exposure that therefore merits being recorded as a medical exposure,” he said. “That’s never been done to my knowledge.”
Dr. Robert Malone, who invented the mRNA technology used in the vaccines, but who is opposed to them because of their risks and lack of efficacy, said the new coding system could be used to deny patients health care services, such as organ transplants – something that has occurred numerous times during the pandemic.
“That information will end up in the hands of insurers,” Dr. Malone said. “They’ll use it to make decisions about what you’re going to have to pay for your insurance policy, whether or not you’re going to be qualified.”
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any more frightening, in New York the fingerprints of unvaccinated city teachers have been sent to the FBI with “problem code” flags.
Teachers now have a “flag in their file,” said John Bursch, who is representing teachers suing the city over the vaccine mandate.
“When the city puts these problem codes on employees who have been terminated because of their unconstitutional policies, not only do they have this flag in their files but their fingerprints are sent with that flag to the FBI and the New York Criminal Justice Services, so it impacts their ongoing ability to get employment at other places,” Bursch said.
It’s not just the FBI. The Department of Education also collects dossiers on teachers who refuse the jab.
What’s really going on here? Why is our government tracking our Covid vaccination status when data clearly shows its ineffectiveness and severe health risks from the vaccine?
Not to mention that we Americans have the right to refuse any medical treatment we want.
There is a bizarre ideology at play here that has nothing to do with Covid, nothing to do with the vaccine, and nothing to do with public health.
Using Covid vaccines to track, isolate and marginalize citizens smacks of totalitarianism. This trend must be resisted – and hopefully, the courts will agree.
Make suicide mandatory for elderly? One professor says let’s do it!
Suicide … how about making it mandatory?
At least for the elderly?
We’re headed in that direction now that a Yale professor has proposed euthanasia to solve our aging populations.
This sounds a bit like the plot of The Time Machine, where the hero travels to the future only to find that there are no elderly people left, only young people. So the evil Eloi, the ruling class, kidnap them at a certain age and puts them to work as slaves in their dungeons.
Well, at least the Eloi didn’t kill them – but the point is the same: Elderly bad, young people good.
Yusuke Narita, an assistant professor of economics at Yale, is a big cheerleader for suicide. He summed it up this way: “I feel like the only solution is pretty clear … In the end, isn’t it mass suicide … of the elderly?” There’s a “possibility of making it mandatory in the future.”
This is so Hitlerian and Darwinian that it boggles the mind to hear it coming from an American citizen who should know better – from Yale, no less.
Yet, this horrifying trend is on a roll in the U.S. Seven states are eyeing their own Medical Aid-in-Dying (MAiD) laws, others are loosening their rules, and a handful already condones assisted suicide. Soon we’ll be just like Canada, which not only encourages undesirables (poor, disabled, and ill people) to kill themselves, they cheerfully offer to help by providing the drugs and injecting them.
Some would call that murder, but why quibble over semantics?
One mother of four, Alice Bozeman, was offered assisted suicide in Washington State, but she decided to ignore her doctor’s advice to kill herself. The doctor told her in 2009 that her lung disease would kill her within six months, but she lived another 12 years and died at 72.
Some of the ten states that already allow medical aid-in-dying (MAiD) are loosening their rules by cutting wait times, letting nurses join doctors in prescribing lethal drugs, and allowing out-of-staters to visit and kill themselves and/or be murdered by medical “professionals.”
In Canada, 10,000 people were killed by medical personnel in 2021. Lawmakers there are considering allowing children and the mentally ill to be murdered by doctors.
In California, 772 residents received prescriptions for lethal drugs in 2021 and 486 died after taking them. In the same year, doctors in Oregon prescribed 383 fatal doses, and 238 people ended their lives.
Last year, Dr. Jennifer Gaudiani, who treats eating disorders, prescribed lethal doses to three patients with anorexia nervosa, a mental health and body image condition that often sees sufferers starve themselves.
One 36-year-old woman died after ingesting the drugs. Yet, Dr. Gaudiani shockingly still has a license to practice.
Most people die within 30 minutes of taking the deadly suicide drugs, but others have taken more than 100 hours to die.
Christopher, 60, an Oregonian, said his dad took more than 36 hours to die after taking 100 crushed pills in Portland in April 2010.
States considering MAiD bills include Arizona, Connecticut, Indiana, Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island, and Virginia. Others may come to Delaware, Maryland, Minnesota, and Nevada.
This new culture of death is a far cry from what advocates describe as allowing victims to have “human dignity.” On the contrary, assisted suicide, which, let’s face it, is murder, is telling people they have no value at all if they’re sick, old, poor or mentally ill.
They have so little value, and they should just die.
FBI calls Christians ‘radical, racist, white supremacists
Christians, beware: The FBI has you in its sights.
A whistleblower has just released an internal document from the FBI that shows the agency is spying on “radical traditionalist Catholics and their ideology.”
“They have found a gateway in what they think is fringe Catholicism in order to move into Christians in general and declare them to be the actual criminals in this country, or the potential terrorists,” said former FBI agent and whistleblower Kyle Seraphin.
“The document was clearly written by someone who believes abortion rights must be upheld and the LGBTQ agenda has to be pushed down the American people’s throats,” Seraphin said.
The FBI document specifies that those who enjoy the Latin liturgical rites are violent or racist. It smears all Christians by stating they all have an “adherence to anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant, anti-LGBTQ and white supremacist ideology.”
What? It’s hard to believe any sane person could write such drivel, but it came straight from the warped minds of our FBI.
Seraphin is right. Today the FBI is going after Catholics as radicals; tomorrow it will be Baptists who oppose abortion and the radical LGBTQ ideology. Then, inevitably, all denominations that identify as Christian.
In fact, why would the FBI stop at Christians? Christian Action Network has reported that the FBI has for years been targeting Republicans, conservatives, Trump supporters, those opposed to the Covid vaccine, and a myriad of other groups that the Biden Administration deems “radical” and “dangerous.” That includes conservative parents.
This FBI is more dangerous to Americans’ freedoms than ever in our nation’s history. J. Edgar Hoover’s notoriously intrusive FBI looks like a child’s birthday party next to today’s FBI.
On February 8, the FBI announced it was retracting the document, saying, “it does not meet our exacting standards.”
Sure. After it was exposed. But in reality, how many in FBI agents can unsee what they already saw?
Parent gets shut down after reading from kinky library book
“Kinks, fantasies and porn.”
You might think a book with a section on sexual deviation would be under lock and key or perhaps at an adult bookstore.
But you would be wrong.
It’s one of the books on the library shelves in an Alaskan school district as part of its objective to increase “diversity, inclusion and equity.”
Parent Jay McDonald attended the district’s school board meeting recently to raise questions about the book … but was quickly shut down.
“There’s nothing wrong with enjoying some porn, it’s a fun sugary treat,” read McDonald at the board meeting from the book entitled “Let’s Talk About It.” “When consumed right, porn can help you discover new aspects of your sexuality.”
He continued reading, “A great place to research fantasies and kinks safely is on the internet. There are tons of people and communities out there who share your interests and have all kinds of advice.”
Then McDonald read from a portion of the book that gave kids tips on sending naked pictures to their peers.
“So before you start sending your naughty masterpieces around the world, take some time to get friendly with photo editing, software, and apps,” he read from the book.
That’s as far as he got before the vice president of the Anchorage school board, Carl Jacobs, interrupted the father and demanded that he shut up.
“I’m going to interrupt you at this point,” said Jacobs. “Just sounds like you have a concern about a book. I’d be glad to get you connected to the superintendent or team to go through the appropriate processes.”
The father pushed back and got some scant support from another board member, Dave Donley, who said, “Mr. President, I don’t think he’s violated any rules. I mean, he hasn’t used… bad words.”
Eventually, the board voted to silence the father by a 5-2 vote.
