    OBAMA JUDGE RULES MEDICAID MUST PAY FOR TRANSGENDER SEX REASSIGNMENT SURGERY An Obama-appointed federal judge is forcing Wisconsin taxpayers to provide costly sex reassignment surgery and hormonal procedures for low-income transgender residents who get free medical care from the government. In a recently issued rulingU.S. District Judge William M. Conley writes that Medicaid, the publicly funded insurance that covers 65.7 million poor people, cannot deny the medical treatment needs of those suffering from “gender dysphoria.” Officials estimate it will cost up to $1.2 million annually to provide transgender Medicaid recipients in the Badger State with treatments such as “gender confirmation” surgery, including elective mastectomies, hysterectomies, genital reconstruction and breast augmentation. The intricate operations are typically done by plastic surgeons. The ruling culminates a lawsuit filed more than a year ago by two transgender Wisconsinites, who accuse the federal and state-funded insurance program of providing them with disparate and inferior health care on the basis of sex. Cody Flack of Green Bay and Sara Makenzie of Baraboo say they suffer from severe gender dysphoria that requires costly surgery. Flack, a woman, claims to be ashamed of her breasts and wants to have them surgically removed as she transitions into a man’s body. To make a case for the government to pay for her surgery, she claims that she engages in “binding,” which flattens her breasts and causes sores, skin irritation and respiratory distress. Flack also has difficulty binding her breasts due to a disability, according to court documents. Makenzie, a man who legally changed his name to Sara and wears women’s clothing, says his “male-appearing genitalia” causes him “great distress” and negatively affects his sexuality and social life. Showering and seeing his body in a mirror is “painful,” court records state, and Makenzie fears someone will be able to see his “male genitals” through his clothing. Last summer Judge Conley issued a preliminary injunction ordering Wisconsin to cover sex reassignment surgery for Flack and Makenzie while state health officials appealed. The permanent ruling directing the state-federal insurance for the poor to pay for all gender confirmation operations in the state was issued last week. To lay the foundation, Conley writes in the injunction that gender dysphoria is a serious medical condition, which if left untreated can cause adverse symptoms. “As a group, transgender individuals have been subjected to harassment and discrimination in virtually every aspect of their lives, including in housing, employment, education, and health care,” according to the document. “Their own families, acquaintances and larger communities can be sources of harassment. For some transgender individuals, though certainly not all, the dissonance between their gender identity and their naturally assigned sex can manifest itself in the form of gender dysphoria, a serious medical condition recognized by both sides’ experts and the larger medical community as a whole.”

    Published on Jul 31, 2019 It was the Scottish author Charles Mackay who spotted that human beings go mad in crowds and come to their senses slowly and individually. One place to see this madness in action is in financial markets - especially when those markets have been juiced with cheap money. But manias’ never last, and in fact, daily, more and more people have stopped drinking the Kool Aid and have started joining the dots the reality of how the world really works… Host Ross Ashcroft is joined by the author Charlie Robinson to discuss how far the tentacles of vested interests really reach to maintain the status quo.

    Anti Federalist While I have a lot of respect for Lew Rockwell, and reference his site often, his personal view is not in-line with mine and other libertarian economists who have studied this. This is where Lew and I respectfully agree to disagree. You will also notice that as often as Ron Paul and Lew engage in conversation, Ron never, afaik, raises the issue of borders with him. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    I posed this question in the Milton Friedman thread: . . Aside from the fact that restrictionism is WRONG from both an economic and freedom standpoint. If the gubermint, in its history of blatant and multiple lies and abuses, really did want to preserve freedom, liberty and fiscal responsibility (which it doesn't), and actually believe (however falsely) that closed/walled in borders are the solution (which it isn't), riddle me this: Why build a wall or any other barrier 30 miles, 100 miles, 200 miles in, when all that would be required is to have "Border Patrol" patrol the Actual Border which is the Rio Grande, far-and-away from rightful property owners, so that Private Property and Businesses would NOT be affected, Americans would NOT have to show papers please, and eliminate the "Constitution-Free" Zone?

    Man Accused Of Upskirting Over 500 Women Caught In The Act In Madrid A man accused of recording 555 upskirting videos of women without their knowledge or consent was arrested in Madrid, Spain, on Wednesday. The suspect, identified only as a 53-year-old Colombian native, was caught taking a video of a woman on the city’s Metro system using a cellphone hidden in his backpack, according to CNN. The man allegedly uploaded nearly 300 such videos to a porn site and has been racking up millions of views since last summer. Some of the suspect’s victims were minors.

    Ron Paul Liberty Report By Jacob G. Hornberger Washington Post columnist Robert Samuelson is worried. He thinks that maybe — just maybe — the U.S. government is not spending enough on defense. In a column entitled, “Here’s Why We Could Be Under-Spending on Defense,” Samuelson has come up with a complicated formula that has caused him to fear that China and Russia might actually be spending more money on their militaries than the United States. Bringing to mind the famous missile-gap controversy during the Cold War, Samuelson wrote, “Our reputed military superiority might be exaggerated or a statistical fiction.” I won’t delve into Samuelson’s complicated formula for arriving at his scary conclusion because, well, it is complicated, a point that even he concedes:
