Hope Hicks causes a mild stir by wearing a tux to a Japanese event

Melania Trump usually grabs the headlines when it comes to style choices for events she attends, but the First Lady was upstaged by White House Communications Director Hope Hicks who decided to wear a tuxedo instead of a dress.

This isn’t really news, but since most media publications are fixated on it, we thought it should be mentioned.

Twitter users have been enjoying the androgynous look, which Hicks dressed up with a feminine pink lip and smoky eye.

Hicks has made a point of staying out of the spotlight, despite her high-profile job. While she serves as the communications director, it’s rare to hear her, well, communicate. Unlike counselor and Hicks antithesis, Kellyanne Conway, Hicks typically keeps to written statements and memos, an unusual and frankly puzzling move for someone in the press-happy administration.

Some think Hope Hicks “upstaged” Melania Trump at a state dinner

http://rare.us/rare-news/across-the-u-s-a/some-are-wondering-if-hope-hicks-upstaged-melania-trump-with-her-bold-fashion-choice/Members of the Trump administration joined the president on a two-week foreign policy trip throughout Asia, starting in Japan. The president golfed with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe while the first lady spent time with Japanese First Lady Akie Abe visiting children at a school.

At one part of the trip, the Trumps attended a state dinner host by Abe at Akasaka Palace. There, many complimented the first lady’s stunning red gown. But the compliments soon turned into comparisons as Hicks went with her own stunning choice… a tuxedo.

Final Thoughts

I am not a fan of “cross-dressing” but this is nothing of the sort. She’s making a fashion statement, one that may be a bit risque in conservative circles but that really isn’t the international affair some in the media are painting it as. She wore a tux. Big deal.

I'm a writer, an amateur designer, and a collector of trinkets that nobody else wants. You can find me on Twitter.

How does the Federalist Society relieve stress? “But Gorsuch” stress balls, of course.

But Gorsuch

Conservatives who aren’t pleased with the actions, direction, and/or rhetoric coming out of the White House often invoke a simple phrase: “But Gorsuch!” It’s intended to remind them that no matter what the current administration does that goes against limited-government principles, at least they can find solace in a Constitution-loving judge being appointed by President Trump to the Supreme Court.

This popular meme made its way to the Federalist Society’s annual convention as the R Street Institute, a free-market think tank, distributed stress balls to attendees. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch’s image and the famous words of solace were printed on the balls.

No matter how bad it gets, remember that it could have been worse, at least from the bench.

Weissmann said the R Street Institute made 150 balls, which it started distributing when the Federalist Society’s annual convention began in Washington on Thursday. The think tank had about 50 balls remaining Friday, with attendees coming to get them while Weissmann spoke with a reporter.

Navy apologizes for sky penis

The skill level of naval aviators is top notch. We’re the envy of the world when it comes to air superiority because of the technological advances and extreme skill level our pilots possess. They put their skills on display in a strange way and now the U.S. Navy is having to apologize for it.

Navy apologizes over penis drawn in the sky, grounds aircrew involved

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/navy-apologizes-over-penis-drawn-in-the-sky-grounds-aircrew-involved/article/2641075“The Navy apologizes to anyone who was offended by this unacceptable action,” according to a statement from Naval Air Station Whidbey Island. “The Officers and Sailors of the United States Navy are professionals, held to the highest standards, while serving our nation with pride around world. The actions of this aircrew were wholly unacceptable and antithetical to Navy core values. We have grounded the aircrew and are conducting a thorough investigation – and we will hold those responsible accountable for their actions.

“The Navy apologizes for this irresponsible and immature act.”

Church of England joins LGBT forces in the culture war and children are the casualties

Church of England

Did you hear about the new set of directives released by the Church of England for schools and teachers concerning gender and gender identity?

In honor of anti-bullying week, the Church of England released an updated version of a 2014 instructional entitled “Valuing All God’s Children.” This new set of rules instructs against so-called homophobia, bi-phobia, and trans-phobia in nursery schools and primary schools.

According to church leadership, preschoolers, kindergarteners, and elementary students should be encouraged to discover their gender identity uninhibited as they “explore the possibilities of who they might be.” Specifically, children are to be taught not to “conform” to traditional male/female “stereotypes.”

Schools must “avoid labels and assumptions which deem children’s behavior irregular, abnormal or problematic just because it does not conform to gender stereotypes … Childhood has a sacred place for creative self-imagining.”

Practically speaking, the guidelines will encourage boys to wear tutus and princess tiaras while encouraging girls to wear tool belts and super hero cloaks in order to help them determine who they might be without “judgement and derision.”

While it’s tempting to dismiss this as England’s problem, the Strident Conservative has documented how the LGBT community and its declared war on Christianity and American culture has already launched similar assaults on children in America’s public schools.

Unfortunately, in America, the Rainbow Jihad has the full support of the government all the way up to the White House.

For example, Barack Obama hosted an event in April, 2016 at the White House aimed at “breaking down gender stereotypes in media and toys.” Much like the Church of England, Obama—with support from Katie Couric, the founder of the gender-neutral start-up Little Bits—promoted the idea that gender is irrelevant and that children should be free to be who they are “without limits.”

While Valerie Jarrett organized the event under the banner of promoting opportunities for girls, Obama’s track record on transgender issues made the affair very LGBT friendly.

And we shouldn’t get comfortable now that Obama is no longer president. Donald Trump—who embraced the LGBT movement at the Republican National Convention in his acceptance speech—announced back in June that his administration would prosecute schools that failed to embrace the LGBT lie concerning transgenderism.

The LGBT culture war is not just an American war. It’s a world war, and as usual, children are the casualties.
