Trump Administration pushes Supreme Court to make discrimination against the LGBTQ community legal again.

So much for being sneaky.

The Trump administration took its hardest line yet to legalize anti-gay discrimination on Friday when it asked the Supreme Court to declare that federal law allows private companies to fire workers based only on their sexual orientation.

An amicus brief filed by the Justice Department weighed in on two cases involving gay workers and what is meant by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which bans discrimination “because of sex.” The administration argued courts nationwide should stop reading the civil rights law to protect gay, lesbian, and bisexual workers from bias because it was not originally intended to do so.

That view conflicts with some lower court rulings that found targeting someone for their sexual orientation is an illegal form of both sex discrimination and sex stereotyping under Title VII. Those courts have found, to illustrate the point, that a gay man wouldn’t be targeted if he were instead a woman dating a man; thus he faced discrimination because of his sex.

But the administration said in its brief Friday that Title VII’s ban on sex discrimination only prohibits unequal treatment between “biological sexes,” as it argued last week in a related brief against transgender rights, in which the Justice Department said companies should be able to fire people because they are transgender as well.

Congress did not explicitly say that the meaning of sex in Title VII encompasses LGBTQ people, so, the administration argues, the law cannot apply to sexual orientation. Federal lawyers are asking the Supreme Court, for the first time, to explicitly limit the Civil Right Act’s protections to exclude LGBTQ people.

Didn’t the Log Cabin Republicans just endorse Doanld Trump?

Yes they did. 

Just goes to show that the Republican gene is infinitely stronger than the gay gene.

    Good job your doing Log Cabin Republicans. I have only three words for you. “Jews for Hitler”.

    Couldn’t get this to you through your news tip link at the bottom of this, so here it is. Ten photos of Trump’s campaign merchandise being made right now in China.

    My mistake. He hustled these through before he raised the tariffs. Guess he had some inside information on that.

    ascribing Epstein’s sexual compulsions to a case of satyriasis. {Medical Definition of satyriasis. : excessive or abnormal sexual desire in the male — compare nymphomania.}
    Epstein was a dilettante, and easily distracted. But he pulled so many prominent thinkers into his social circle, using the promise of his money to create “some kind of a mini university of thought,” that in Pivar’s view he did “amazing, incredible, amazing, remarkable things for science.” No kidding. No kidding. No kidding.

    So you don’t think he’s guilty of any of the allegations against him right now? “Let’s put it this way. What’s the difference between the punishment which befalls a murderer and a serial murderer? It’s the same. If Jeffrey Epstein was found guilty of fooling around with one 16-year-old trollop, nobody would pay any attention. The trouble is, what he did was quantitative and not qualitative. What Jeffrey did is nothing in comparison to the rapes and the forceful things, which people did.””In other words, what I’m saying is, what Jeffrey did in comparison with other people is only different in the fact that he made an industry out of it. Industry! He did stuff with underage girls who knew what the hell they were doing. By the hundreds. If he only did one, no one would pay attention. Nor, on the other hand, did he actually rape any of them or anything like that, which happens, you know. If you want to make a list of, let us say, in the past several years, of the kind of stuff going on of sexual abuse of children and what the hell not—you want to compare that with what Jeffrey did? What Jeffrey did in comparison with the kind of stuff which gets exposed every day of people who are abusing children left and right and all kinds of institutions? Jeffrey never did anything like that. Everything he had to do with these girls was complicit. ” – “He was very scrupulous about leaving me out of that stuff. He never invited me to the Isle of Babes.” -“So you never went there or anything like that?
    “There are plenty of people with satyriasis like there are plenty of nymphomaniacs, except very few of them have the money to, let us say, treat themselves to sex three times a day with young girls. That was what he had to do. Other people, there are plenty of cases, presumably, if you want to read up on the subject—it’s called satyriasis, right? It’s the male version of—did you ever meet a nymphomaniac?
    No, of course I didn’t. For a while I was annoyed that he didn’t invite me. ’Cause all kinds of—see, I was involved in his scientific affairs.”
    “Jeffrey told me that he studied math at UCLA with the Unabomber, who was a math teacher.” “Jeffrey had no attention span whatsoever—he would interrupt the conversation and change it and say things like, “What does that got to do with pu$$y?!” “That was his favorite expre$$ion. It was a subject changer. And it revealed what was really in his mind.”

    “Who knows how many men have that? And the difference is that if there are other ones who have it, I don’t know, they probably go around raping or God knows what they do. Jeffrey had the money to do it politely—namely, by getting complaisant young girls.”
    “You’re going to misinterpret everything I just said, and you are about to get me into big-time trouble!” “I am suddenly—I am mad at myself for even talking to you. What’s the name of your publication? I’m writing for Mother Jones right now..{A MUST READ} “What have I done? I have just shot myself in the foot.”
    Yeah, that’s been around for a very long time, since the ’70s, am I right? Or ’60s even Yeah, ’70s.
    Isn’t that an outgrowth of Woodstock?
    No. It’s very politically focused right now and environmentally as well.

    “I am mad at myself! What have I—oh, dammit. I don’t trust you. You’re a journalist, and you’re not gonna take time to figure out what I really said.
    I have now put myself into terrible trouble when I actually have no idea what the hell Jeffrey was ever doing. Except his scientific things and his supposed art things, I used to help him furnish his house with art. That’s all. And while that was going on—oh boy. What have I done?

    How much do you want to forget this whole conversation?
    “I’m not gonna take any money.”
    No. Boy am I glad that nobody I know reads Mother Jones. I mean, I stopped reading that about 40 years ago.
    You inveigled me, so to speak, into yapping pointlessly because I have nothing else to do for the moment, and I’m relying on you to understand what I say. If you misquote me or anything like that, I will sue your magazine until the end of the Earth.

    I understand. You’ve been very clear in what you’ve said. I will absolutely not distort or misquote you.

    Tell me your name again so I can start writing a complaint to sue you.

    My name is Leland. But we can go ahead and end the conversation here. I appreciate you offering me your point of view.

    Look, it’s been fun, but for heaven’s sakes, please don’t screw me over.

    You have my word and you got—

    I’ve done you a big favor by telling you a lot of stuff, and I don’t expect you to stab me in the back.

    I absolutely have no intention of doing so. You also have—

    Otherwise I will stab you in other places.”

    Oh, go RIGHT ahead, Supreme Court!
    Show your TRUE colors, constitution be damned. I’m waiting…..

    Unfortunately I know several Log Cabin Republicans here in Texas and they are every bit as racist, sexist and disgusting as regular Republicans. They deserve everything they get from this administration.
