Libs Protest Their Own Argument – Their Just Not Smart Enough To Recognize the Fact
The libs don’t like the fact that Idaho has stopped letting boys take over girls’ sports.
LGBT activists and groups that support their agenda are urging the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) to not allow sporting events to be held in Idaho, after lawmakers in that state passed a bill that limits female sports in high school and college to those who are biologically female.
Young female athletes’ dreams and accomplishments have been dashed across the country when competing against biological males who “identify” as females. Idaho is the first state to pass legislation to protect female athletes from unfair competition.
Th letter these groups sent to the NCAA:
The coalition argues that Idaho’s law “blatantly targets an already-marginalized community,” and runs contrary to the values of the NCAA, which governs collegiate athletics. Athletes argue that Idaho should be banned from hosting NCAA events as long as the law is in place.
“This is the time for the NCAA to stand on the right side of history and support the rights of all athletes in Idaho to compete in the sports they love,” reads a letter signed by more than 400 student athletes. “…With HB500 remaining law in Idaho, it is impossible for the NCAA to host events that are inclusive and safe for all athletes.”
The letters specifically ask the NCAA to move the first and second rounds of the 2021 Men’s Division I Basketball Championship games away from Boise State University, as first reported by Sports Illustrated on Wednesday morning.
So in other words they still want athletes born male to continue “breaking girls records” along with taking scholarships away from female athletes.
President Donald Trump on Thursday defended police officers across the country, urging Americans to work together to improve race relations.
“We have to work together to confront bigotry and prejudice wherever they appear, but we will make no progress and heal no wounds by falsely labeling tens of millions of decent Americans as racist or bigots,” Trump said.
“Unfortunately there are some that are trying to stoke division and to push an extreme agenda, which we won’t go for, that will only produce more poverty, more crime, more suffering,” he said.
The president expressed his distaste for the leftist demands to defund police departments.
“We’ll take care of our police, we’re not defunding the police. If anything ,we’re going to other route,” he said. “We’re going to make sure that our police are well trained, perfectly trained, and have the best equipment.”
Trump was astonished by the idea of defunding the police, noting that he had never heard of it before.
“What happens late at night when you make that call to 9-1-1 and there’s nobody there?” he asked. “What do you do, whether you’re white, black, or anybody else, what do you do?”

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told CNBC on Thursday that shutting down the economy for a second time to combat the spread of Covid-19 isn’t a viable option and could cause even more headaches for Americans.
“We can’t shut down the economy again. I think we’ve learned that if you shut down the economy, you’re going to create more damage,” Mnuchin said in an interview with CNBC’s Jim Cramer on “Squawk on the Street.”
“And not just economic damage, but there are other areas and we’ve talked about this: medical problems and everything else that get put on hold,” he added. “I think it was very prudent what the president did, but I think we’ve learned a lot.”
The rise cases amid U.S. reopening efforts has made investors nervous that states may have to reimpose business closures to again try to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
That pessimism contributed to the Dow Jones Industrial Average’s 800 point slide Thursday morning and the S&P 500′s 2.6% loss.

This would be huge for gold fans watching from home.
Jim Nantz will be alone in the broadcast booth when the PGA Tour resumes its schedule Thursday. That’s not the only voice CBS Sports wants to hear at Colonial.
The network has been working more aggressively to have players wear microphones, and that CBS already has received commitments from some players.
“There’s probably a greater appreciation for wanting to contemporize golf coverage,” McManus said Monday on a conference call. “Players are beginning to realize they can play a real role in making the product more interesting at home.”
Nantz, who typically has analyst Nick Faldo at his side in the 18th hole tower, put the onus on the players to liven golf broadcasts and help expand the audience.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity for the game … to go before a sports-starved nation and have a chance to create a wider fan base than it’s ever been before,” Nantz said. “A lot has to be personality driven. We need to hear from the players. It’s something that’s not obtrusive. It’s an opportunity for players to invest in their own game.”
It would be very interesting indeed to hear players throughout the round.
