"Standing United Together . . . Under the Cross of Christ"

Focus on Israel

1. Tehran Imam threatens missile attack on Dimona nuclear power plant - Jerusalem Post

"If Iran decides to confront you, a missile strike on the Dimona reactor would be enough," said Tehran's Friday Prayer Imam Ayatollah Mohammad Ali Movahedi-Kermani in a sermon addressing the United States and Israel, according to a report by Radio Farda.

Movahedi-Kermani threatened that such an attack on the nuclear reactor in Israel's Negev desert would "plow Israel 200 times."

"You are living in a glass house. You'd better watch out," said the Tehran-based Imam.

He also warned the US against a military attack on Iran, saying: "Think of an attack only if you want to change the color of the Persian Gulf waters from azure to red."

2. IDF discovers more Gaza tunnels leading into Israel - Jerusalem Post

Another cross-border tunnel dug into Israeli territory was discovered in the southern part of the Gaza Strip during construction of the country's underground barrier, the IDF announced on Monday evening.

"At this time, IDF soldiers are conducting an investigation of the passage," the IDF said. "More information will be provided shortly."

It is unclear if the tunnel was newly dug by terror groups in the Strip or if it was an old unused tunnel.

The Eshkol Regional Council said that the tunnel was found by "groundbreaking technological defenses that are used along the Gaza border to protect our communities. The tunnel is not a threat and is being handled by the IDF."

Israel's military has been investing extensive efforts in locating cross-border tunnels from Gaza, and has destroyed 16 terror tunnels that infiltrated into Israeli territory in the past two years, including one tunnel that stretched into both Israel and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula near the Kerem Shalom crossing.

3. PA outraged by Netanyahu's statement - Israel National News

The Palestinian Authority's (PA) "foreign ministry" condemned a tweet by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu about the Jewish people's connection to the Land of Israel.

Netanyahu, in a series of tweets, had linked to articles on a new study which confirmed that the origin of the Philistines is in southern Europe and that there is no connection between the Philistines and present day Palestinian Arabs.

"The Palestinians' connection to the Land of Israel is nothing compared to the 4,000 year connection that the Jewish people have with the land," he wrote.

"There's no connection between the ancient Philistines and the modern Palestinians, whose ancestors came from the Arabian Peninsula to the Land of Israel thousands of years later," Netanyahu noted in another tweet.

4. Israeli Court Finds Palestinian Authority Liable for Second Intifada Terror Attacks - Algemeiner

In a precedent-setting ruling, the Jerusalem District Court ruled on Monday that the Palestinian Authority was responsible for terrorist acts committed during the Second Intifada, including attacks by other Palestinian groups.

The ruling means that the PA is financially liable to victims and their families. The Israeli news site Mako estimated that, as a result, lawsuits could eventually cost the PA a billion shekels, or nearly $300 million.

The lawsuit was brought by the Israeli NGO Shurat HaDin-Israel Law Center, which pursues legal action against terrorists and their supporters, following the model used by the US group Southern Policy Law Center against the Ku Klux Klan.

Shurat HaDin's head Nitsana Darshan-Leitner said the ruling proved that the Second Intifada, which began in 2000 and petered out around half a decade later, "was not a popular uprising, but a planned and deliberate war against the civilian population of Israel."

5. Ethiopian-Israeli protesters vow to 'shut down the state' if cop isn't prosecuted for deadly shooting - World Israel News

Police were out in force on Monday as Ethiopian-Israelis and their supporters rallied, demanding justice for Solomon Tekah, 18, who was shot by an off-duty policeman last week.

Dozens of mothers marched through Tel Aviv in a show of rising anger over the police officer's fatal shooting of the Ethiopian-Israeli teenager.

The protests began nearly immediately after the shooting, with certain demonstrations devolving into violent clashes with law enforcement. According to the protesters, Tekah's killing represents another incident in a pattern of police brutality and discrimination.

While the police officer who shot Tekah remains under investigation by the Justice Ministry, community members are demanding a strong reaction from the government.

The Daily Brief

1. Rep. Peter King: 'Severe, serious abuses' by FBI, CIA in Russia probe 'going to come out' - Fox News

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said he is "confident" that when Attorney General Bill Barr concludes his investigation of the origins of the investigation of President Trump's 2016 campaign, the American people will learn that the FBI and CIA under the Obama administration engaged in foul play.

President Trump and his supporters have questioned how the investigation started in the first place, accusing the FBI of carrying it out under false pretenses. King is among those leveling such allegations.

"There was no legal basis at all for them to begin the investigation of his campaign," King said in a Friday interview with New York radio host John Catsimatidis, "and the way they carried it forward and the way information was leaked, the improper applications they filed in the FISA court to get surveillance, all of this is going to come out."

King was referring to the FBI's application for a warrant under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. Republicans, including California Rep. Devin Nunes, claimed that federal authorities did not fully disclose their reliance on an unverified dossier compiled by Christopher Steele, which was part of opposition research for Hillary Clinton's campaign. (Read more)

- Father, we ask that the abuses be revealed in a way that Americans will all be able to understand what occurred.

- "To open blind eyes, to bring out prisoners from the prison, those who sit in darkness from the prison house." (Isaiah 42:7)


2. Joe Biden compares Trump to bullies he would 'smack' in the mouth - Washington Examiner

2020 front-runner Joe Biden compared President Trump to a bully he'd "smack" in the mouth, in a Friday morning interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo.

"Sure it worries me, in the sense that I'm looking forward to this, man. You walk behind me in a debate, come here, man. Don't you think - you know me too well. The idea that I'd be intimidated by Donald Trump? He's the bully that I knew my whole life," Biden stated.

"He's the bully that I've always stood up to. He's the bully that used to make fun when I was a kid that I stutter, and I'd smack them in the mouth," the former vice president added. "But I think the American people want a president who has some dignity, who has a value set, who is actually trying to restore the soul of this country so when they turn on the television they look up and their kids say, 'I want to be like that guy or that woman.'" (Read more)

- Lord, this was a thinly veiled threat that should not have been made, even though we are all aware the Mr. Biden often sticks his foot in his mouth. We pray for the soul of this former Vice President and ask for clear mind and heart change.

- "And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity." (James 3:6a)


3. With CAIR's Backing, Rep. Ilhan Omar Targets FBI Terror Database - CNS News

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and ten other House Democrats have written to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, requesting information about how information from the FBI-administered terrorist watchlist is shared with foreign governments - including governments with poor human rights records.

In doing so, she pointed to the support of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a sometimes controversial group that has mounted legal challenges against the watchlist, formally known as the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB).

In a release Friday about the letter to Pompeo, Omar quoted CAIR national Executive Director Nihad Awad, who said the TSDB was "dangerous enough" in itself, but even more so when shared with "tyrannical regimes."

Other signatories of Omar's letter include Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.). The two freshmen are the first Muslim women to be elected to the U.S. Congress. Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), one of the more than two dozen Democrats running for their party's 2020 presidential nomination, also signed.

"In our oversight role as Members of Congress, we are entitled to information as to which countries receive this sensitive and classified information about American citizens, many of whom have never been charged, arrested, or convicted of a crime," the lawmakers wrote.

They believe that the TSDB has been shared with more than 60 foreign countries, well beyond the 38 Visa Waiver Program (VWP) countries. They said other countries with information-sharing arrangements were believed to include Albania, Slovenia, India, Brazil, Mexico, Ghana, Kenya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Tunisia, and Israel, they wrote. (Slovenia is in fact a VWP country.) Read more.

- Lord, we bind up Omar's evil intent, and pray that everything she attempts against this nation will fall to the ground. We rebuke her backing of the Muslim Brotherhood (CAIR) and ask that You break it apart permanently.

-"He who justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the just, both of them alike are an abomination to the Lord." (Proverbs 17:15)


4. School Clams Up on Ramadan Promotions - WND

A school district that was caught allowing Muslim students to interrupt classes to "convert" others to Islam now has refused to release information about its promotion of Ramadan.

The Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund, which informs educators about the "threat of Islamic indoctrination and religiously preferential 'anti-Islamophobia' bullying programs," said the West New York school board in Newark, New Jersey, has denied an Open Public Records Act request.

FCDF filed the request "to obtain the district records about two Muslim students at Memorial High School who were allowed to proselytize in multiple classrooms during the school day."

The organization also sought records about a banner that Memorial High's principal hung during Ramadan that called upon Allah to "shower" blessings on students.

FCDF said the proselytizing "was part of the North Hudson Islamic Educational Center's 'Dawah Committee,' whose goal is to convert non-Muslim public school students to Islam. In multiple online posts, the Dawah Committee praised the students' efforts to Islamize their classmates and prayed that Allah would 'bless them manifold' for their 'dawah educational exercise.'"

Dawah is an Islamic term meaning to convert non-Muslims through nonviolent means. (Read more)

- Lord, we take authority over this spirit that is constantly attempting to convert and corrupt our children and we say "no more in the Mighty Name of Jesus!" We apply the cross of Christ against this agenda and declare the Lordship of Jesus Christ over every school in America.

- "That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." (Philippians 2:10,11)


5. LGBT teacher accused of screaming at Christian kids - WND

A head teacher who already has angered parents for organizing a gay pride parade for primary students and promoting LGBT views in class is under fire again. The British teacher, Susan Papas of Heavers Farmer Primary in Croydon, in south London, allegedly demanded five days of detention for a boy and a girl after they asked to be exempted from an LGBT lesson on June 20 during gay pride month.

The girl, Kaysey, a Pentecostal Christian, says she was kept in detention for five hours, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. And Papas is accused of screaming at the two children and accusing them of demanding death for LGBT members.

The U.K. charity Christian Concern said it was the boy, Farrell, who first asked to be exempted from the LGBT promotion in class, but the teacher refused. (Read more)

- Lord, this incident is unacceptable no matter what country it's in. We pray that You will protect these children and grant them faith. We bind up that vicious spirit within the teacher and ask for her soul to be set free from bondage.

- "The righteous God wisely considers the house of the wicked, overthrowing the wicked for their wickedness." (Proverbs 21:12)


6. Charity and police break up UK's largest modern slavery ring - The Guardian

The largest-ever modern slavery ring uncovered in the UK has been broken up after a three-year investigation into its activities. Some of its 400 victims worked for as little as 50p a day.

Their labour earned millions for members of a criminal gang led by a Polish criminal family, which preyed on the homeless, ex-prisoners and alcoholics from Poland. Gang members were jailed on Friday.

The gang tricked and then trafficked vulnerable men and women - ranging in age from 17 to over 60 - to Britain with the promise of gainful employment but instead housed them in squalor and used them as what a judge described as "commodities". Working on farms, rubbish recycling centres and poultry factories in the Midlands, they were made to live in cramped, rat-infested accommodation and reduced to going to soup kitchens and food banks to get enough to eat. (Read more)

- Lord, we pray that You will touch the hearts of these victims, helping them to find the path to You. We rebuke the mindset of the perpetrators, and pray that justice will prevail in their cases, removing the very root of their evil.

- "For the Lord is a God of justice." (Isaiah 30:18c)


7. Police Investigate Death Threats to Movie Theater Owners Screening Pro-Life Film 'Unplanned' - Breitbart

Police have been called in to investigate allegations of death threats made to cinema theater owners in Canada who had scheduled to screen the pro-life movie Unplanned. B.J. McKelvie, president of Cinedicon, the Canadian distributor of the film that tells the story of Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood manager-turned pro-life activist, confirmed two Canadian independent cinema owners reported threats that caused them to be "fearful for their families," said LifeSiteNews. Yet another independent theater owner was reportedly "harassed to the extreme."

Chuck Konzelman, one of the film's producer-directors, reportedly said McKelvie requested, for the sake of safety, the film's producers remove from their website the July 12 listing of 46 Canadian theaters that will be screening the movie. The death threats are reportedly aimed at the independent theater owners. McKelvie noted "they didn't get anywhere with Cineplex, or they didn't get anywhere with Landmark." (Read more)

- Lord, we erect a hedge of the fire of God around these theaters, and rebuke the enemy from assaulting any of them. We speak peace to social media, and comfort to those who are being threatened. Grant them strength and faith, Lord!

- "Above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one." (Ephesians 6:16)


8. Google Becomes Beijing's New Propaganda Tool to Spread Fake News - Epoch Times

When following the latest developments of the Hong Kong protests against the extradition bill, some Chinese netizens found that if they use Google search to look for related reports, the top result is a website that defames the protests as "sabotaging Hong Kong," and accuses protesters of "using violence to attack the police." It also claims that anti-China foreign forces are taking advantage of the current situation to meddle in Hong Kong's affairs.

In recent weeks, Hongkongers have staged mass protests against a bill that would allow the Chinese regime to seek extradition of criminal suspects. Opponents are worried that if the bill were to pass, Beijing could potentially pressure the Hong Kong government to hand over any Hong Kong citizens, as well as foreigners living or traveling in Hong Kong, to face trial in the Chinese regime's courts under false accusations.

A reader in Hong Kong reported his unusual Google search. [The first search result is a] link that goes to www.jophk.com, the "Hong Kong Justice Coalition." The content it reports is from pro-Beijing Hong Kong-based publications that criticize Hong Kong citizens for using violence against the police. It justifies the police brutality by claiming that their firing of rubber bullets and tear gas is only limited and reasonable use of force. (Read more)

- Father, Google is out of control. From censorship of Americans to censoring any Democratic movement in China, they have overstepped their purpose. We ask for accountability and justice for all who have been victimized by their censorship.

- "For I will contend with him who contends with you." (Isaiah 49: 25c)


9. UN nuclear watchdog to hold emergency meeting on Iran next week - Times of Israel

The UN's nuclear watchdog said Friday it will hold an emergency meeting on Iran's nuclear program next week, days after Tehran breached one of the limits set in a 2015 deal with world powers.

The meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency's board of governors, which follows a US request, will be held on July 10, an IAEA spokesman said. . .

The IAEA confirmed earlier this week that Iran had breached the limit of 300kg for stockpiles of enriched uranium as stipulated under the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

The US statement described the news of the breach as "concerning." "The international community must hold Iran's regime accountable," the statement added. (Read more)

- Lord God, the more nations and entities that keep their eye upon Iran, the better. We pray that action will follow this meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency's board of governors, to hold Iran accountable for its actions, and to urge the nations of Europe to maintain sanctions against this rogue nation. Help us, O Lord, we pray!

- "He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me." (Psalm 18:17)


10. Venezuela's army death squads kill thousands - DW.com

Venezuelan security forces have been sending death squads to commit extrajudicial killings of young men, according to a United Nations report released on Thursday. The crime scenes are then staged to make it look like the victims were resisting arrest.

The report relays the accounts of 20 families, who say that masked men dressed in black from the Special Actions Forces (FAES) arrived at their homes in black vehicles without license plates. They then broke into their houses, assaulted the women and girls and stole belongings. "They would separate young men from other family members before shooting them," the report said.

"In every case, witnesses reported how FAES manipulated the crime scene and evidence. They would plant arms and drugs and fire their weapons against the walls or in the air to suggest a confrontation and to show the victim had 'resisted authority.'" According to the report, the deaths were an integral part of President Nicolas Maduro's campaign of "neutralizing, repressing and criminalizing political opponents and people critical of the government." (Read more)

- Lord, we pray for Your mercy over the people of Venezuela. We pray that Maduro will soon be deposed, and that everything he and his death squads plan will be dismissed by Your hand.

"Evil shall slay the wicked, and those who hate the righteous will be condemned." (Psalm 34:21)

The revolution and the coup


As we have focused our attention on patriotism and freedom in America, it may be time to reflect on the direction of this nation. In 2008, a revolution to remake America began. A coalition of the unrighteous-- progressives, socialists, communists and their various special interest minions--took over the country and began twisting the traditional moral and economic foundations of America. These people were not only wrong-minded and godless, they were the epitome of the failures of collectivism. As Romans 1:22 says, "Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools." As Jeremiah 10:15 reveals: "They are vanity, and the work of errors." Aided by revolutionaries in the news media, a revolution was afoot.

The scandals should have brought the revolutionary administration to its knees--neither Benghazi, nor Fast and Furious, nor IRS targeting or government spying stopped them from their appointed rounds. The revolution began pitting Americans against Americans, creating racial tension and augmenting it by fanning the flames with words of division disguised as words of peace. Socialist healthcare, challenges to traditional marriage, gun control measures, government attacks on Christian and church organizations, hateful rhetoric against all who disagreed, record spending and national debt without legally mandated budgets, the list goes on and on. Yet, despite all this, at the end of the second term, the revolution was poised to continue with the election of Hillary Clinton, heiress of the progressive manifesto for America.

As an insurance policy, the president, the Clinton campaign, and the Democratic National Committee martialed their deep state connections and paid for a false dossier claiming that Republican Donald Trump conspired with Russia to alter the 2016 presidential election. They figured that it would prevent voters from electing Trump, although all the media polls were showing a Clinton landslide. Clinton even challenged Trump on whether he would accept the results of the election if she won. His non-committal answer prompted Clinton to make a big deal out of Trump refusing to accept the results. In the end, it was Clinton who refused to accept the results, challenging the electoral college and fomenting an attempted coup.

What materialized was a deep-state, Democratic Party conspiracy to prevent Trump from becoming President. An FBI report indicated the FBI and the previous White House used the secret FISA court to spy on Trump, the visceral of FBI agents against Trump and in favor of Hillary Clinton, and general deep state chicanery. The entire "Russian" narrative accused Trump of exactly what his opponents were doing. Despite the FBI report, various reports by Congress, and the Mueller Special Counsel report turned up no evidence of Trump-Russian collusion, the coup-makers continue to try to remove the president from office. This coup to preserve the remake America revolution continues and we must suspend our disbelief otherwise the American ideal is great peril.

Have a blessed and powerful day,

Flash Floods Hit D.C.

Flash Floods Hit D.C.

City is inundated; drivers rescued; the White House Press Room leaks!


1. Weather Alert: Historic Flash Flood Hits DC, Stranding Cars in High Water - NBC DC

D.C. was hit by a historic flash flood Monday morning, drenching the city with nearly 3.5 inches of rainfall in just two hours.

The inundation stranded drivers, poured into Metro stations and soaked basements, including the White House's.

Flooding led to electrical outages that closed the National Archives Building and Museum, according to a statement from the National Archives, which said the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights were safe and not in any danger.

Water levels at Cameron Run in Alexandria, Virginia, a flood-prone area along the Capital Beltway, rose more than 7 feet over 30 minutes after 9 a.m., according to the National Weather Service. Four Mile Run, which runs through Arlington and Alexandria, saw a similar increase.

2. Heavy rain slams DMV, causes flooding, road closures and chaos - CBS News

Torrential downpours swept across the D.C. region during Monday morning's commute, causing chaos, road closures and water rescues.

Flash flood warnings were in effect for D.C. and surrounding areas until 2 p.m. on Monday.

The intense rainfall washed out roads, stranded people in their cars and caused flooding in unlikely areas. (Read more and view videos here.)


3. Donald Trump's White House is leaking - literally - on the media - USA Today

We know that President Donald Trump likes to pour cold water on the news media, but this is ridiculous.

Torrential rains in the Washington, D.C., area on Monday created floods all around the White House - and in the White House, including large puddles of water in the basement of the White House press room.

"It's official: The White House basement is flooding," tweeted CNBC correspondent Eamon Javers.

It's not totally unique: The press basement is below ground level, and frequently absorbs water after heavy rains. (Read more)

Christian family details crackdown on church in China - Breitbart

The Sunday service this week at an unassuming church in Taiwan was especially moving for one man. It was the first time Liao Qiang had worshipped publicly since authorities shut down his church in China seven months ago.

The 49-year-old arrived in Taiwan last week after fleeing China with five family members. He and his 23-year-old daughter, Ren Ruiting, described living under constant surveillance for the past seven months after authorities detained them and dozens of other members of their prominent but not government-sanctioned church in December.

China's ruling Communist Party has carried out a widespread crackdown on all religious institutions in recent years, including bulldozing churches and mosques, barring Tibetan children from Buddhist religious studies and incarcerating more than a million members of Islamic ethnic minorities in what are termed "re-education centers." President and party leader Xi Jinping has ordered that all religions must "Sinicize" to ensure they are loyal to the officially atheistic party.

In contrast, Taiwan's democratically elected government has long taken a hands-off approach to religion on the island, where most follow Buddhism and traditional Chinese beliefs, but where Christianity and other religions also thrive.

Liao and Ren's account is the first detailing what has happened since the detentions began at the Early Rain Covenant Church. It shows the determination of the Chinese government - and the lengths it has gone - to eradicate a congregation that has long been a thorn in its side. (Read more)

- Father, we pray for the church in China, both the visible and underground assemblies of believers. We ask that You grant them safety, protection, faith, and strength to continue their work.

- "He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels." (Rev 3:5)

Signs and Wonders

Flooding rainfall leaves a mark on DC-area roadways


Monday morning's flooding rains took a toll on area roads, and many around the D.C. area will be dealing with its lingering effects in the days to come.

Sinkholes, downed trees and standing water remain around the area.

Monday's rains were so severe that police had asked drivers to stay off the roads. Emergency crews had to rescue several who persisted anyway, after their vehicles got stuck in the high water.

D.C. Fire and EMS reported around noon that about 15 people were rescued from their vehicles when they were caught in high water. Those rescues also took place on Canal Road Northwest and at 15th Street and Constitution Avenue Northwest.

First responders also had to help three people in their vehicles caught in high water Monday morning at South Capitol Street and Malcolm X Avenue Southeast.

In Montgomery County, Maryland, the Transportation Department reported that the county's western portion received over 2 to 5 inches of rain - "with some locations receiving higher amounts" - in the span of six hours.

. . . Additionally, a tractor-trailer jackknifed on the Inner Loop of the Beltway near Maryland Route 355/Rockville Pike, blocking the left side of the highway Monday morning. The Inner Loop was closed at one point near the American Legion Bridge, too, after a tree came down on a vehicle.

In Northern Virginia, about 25 roads are closed - most of which due to downed trees, said VDOT spokesman Ellen Kamilakis. Crews are still assessing affected bridges and roads to ensure they're safe.

"We have kind of a mixed bag going on right now," she said.

The Good News Corner

Generation Z: The Path of LGBT Resistance

For everyone who's tired of scrolling through rainbow pride this month, here's some good news. This constant saturation of LGBT messaging may finally be having an effect -- and not the one liberals were counting on. Turns out, the Left's in-your-face approach to sexuality is backfiring, and in the least likely generation of all.

Think the opposition to the LGBT agenda is only in the aging populations? Think again. The latest wave of resistance is in the last place most people would look: the 18-34 demographic. The children of Obergefell aren't exactly racing to get on the radical bandwagon that's redefined marriage. In the latest Harris Poll for Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, the acceptance of this extreme agenda is dwindling -- and young people are leading the revolt. In just a couple of years, statisticians have seen a huge decline in support for an agenda most liberals took for granted.

In every scenario, Generation Z says it's more uncomfortable than ever in these situations:

Learning their child has a lesson on LGBTQ history in school (up to 39 percent from 27 in 2016);
Finding out that they have an LGBTQ teacher (up to 33 percent from 25 percent in 2016);
Learning a family member is LGBTQ (up to 36 percent from 24 percent in 2016);
Finding out that their doctor was LGBTQ (up to 34 percent from 24 percent in 2016)

To people like John Gerzema, CEO of the Harris Poll, the results came as an incredible surprise. "We count on the narrative that young people are more progressive and tolerant." But maybe, after years of watching this vocal minority push around Christians and refuse to tolerate other viewpoints, this group of young people has finally had enough. After all, they're the generation who's been forced to use gender-neutral pronouns, share locker rooms with the opposite sex, lose sports meets to biological boys, and embrace every other form of political correctness.
