Supreme Court can’t decide whether to decide key LGBT cases

Featured image The Supreme Court has been presented with two sets of cases relating to issues at the core of the LGBT agenda. Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia and Altitude Express Inc. v. Zarda raise the question of whether discrimination against an employee because of sexual orientation constitutes prohibited employment discrimination “because of. . .sex,” within the meaning of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Lower courts have divided »

Alex Acosta preserves Chai Feldblum’s aggressive LGBT agenda

Featured image We have just entered the eleventh year of the Obama Department of Labor, Alex Acosta presiding. I wrote here about how Acosta has preserved the radical Obama administration agenda in employment discrimination law, especially when it comes to manipulating statistics to find pay discrimination where none exists. I have also documented Acosta’s refusal to disturb pro-illegal immigrant policies imposed by the Obama administration through the Department of Labor. President Trump »

Chai Feldblum is finally out at the EEOC

Featured image The beginning of the new year brought an end to Chai Feldblum’s long tenure as EEOC commissioner. Last month, her supporters made a last ditch attempt to have her confirmed for another term. However, Sen. Mike Lee, who fought against her confirmation throughout 2018, wouldn’t budge. With Lee holding firm, Majority Leader McConnell did not allow a vote — one Feldblum almost certainly would have won. Had Lee been the »

Religious Colorado cake baker is back in the dock

Featured image Jack Phillips is the Christian cake baker from Colorado who had to go all the way to the Supreme Court to avoid being punished after declining to bake a wedding cake for a couple celebrating their gay marriage.

Chai Feldblum in her own words

Chai update: Sen. Lee is steadfast in his opposition

Featured image Sen. Mike Lee has been holding out against the renomination of Chai Feldblum for another term as EEOC Commissioner. Feldblum is the architect of the Obama administration’s LGBT policy and an enemy of religious freedom in virtually all cases where it stands in the way of gay “dignity,” as she sees it. I have heard that this week, Senate leadership is making another push to confirm Feldblum, along with two »

Chai, and media, alert

Featured image Last night, I reported that, from what I’m hearing, Senate leadership is pushing to confirm Chai Feldblum as EEOC Commissioner this week. Feldblum, as we have discussed, is a left-wing radical who, among other things, formulated President Obama’s LBGT agenda. She thinks it’s fine if that agenda tramples religious freedom, as it often does. Sen. Mike Lee placed a hold on Feldblum’s nomination. However, the plan is to get Lee’s »

Chai alert

Featured image Sen. Mike Lee has been fighting against the renomination of Chai Feldblum as EEOC Commissioner. Feldblum is the architect of President Obama’s radical LBGT agenda. She believes, among other things, that when religious liberty and sexual liberty conflict, sexual liberty should prevail in virtually all cases. The confirmation of Feldblum looked like a done deal in December. However, key social conservative groups sounded the alarm, and Sen. Lee placed a »

Military service by transgender individuals, Gen. Mattis speaks

Featured image The Trump administration has overturned the policy of its predecessor on military service by transgender individuals. The reversal of policy, including the limited instances in which the prior policy will be honored, strikes me as sound. However, I lack the expertise to have a view that should be taken seriously by others. The same is true of the judges who, in another sign that the country is headed in the »

Why conservatives should reject the Chai Feldblum package deal

Coalition for Jewish Values denounces Chai Feldblum’s re-nomination

Featured image The Coalition for Jewish Values (CJV) is, I believe, the largest rabbinic public policy organization in America. It articulates and advocates for public policy positions based upon traditional Jewish thought. Today the CJV sharply criticized the Trump Administration for re-nominating Chai Feldblum to the EEOC. Rabbi Steven Pruzansky, Eastern Regional. Vice President of the CJV, explained: Feldblum has been truly unfriendly to accommodation of religious views. The decision to renew »

Why Chai?

Featured image Christian Adams at PJ Media denounces the nomination of Chai Feldblum for another term as an EEOC commissioner. Christian writes: Some Republicans, apparently including some inside the White House, think it’s fine to put an activist radical on the EEOC in order to get two more Republicans confirmed to the EEOC. But Feldblum is no ordinary radical. As one lawyer familiar with EEOC practice tells me, “she’s worth three Republicans” »

Who will stop the Chai Feldblum express? [UPDATED]

Featured image As we reported last week, President Trump has renominated Chai Feldblum for a third term as EEOC commissioner. Feldblum is a leading gay rights activist and an architect of President Obama’s LGBT agenda, including the notion that denying certain men (biologically speaking) access to women’s restroom facilities is unlawful discrimination. She says that when religious liberty clashes with sexual liberty, religious liberty should almost always lose. The Trump administration wants »

Social conservatives rally against Chai Feldblum’s nomination [UPDATED]

Featured image Last Tuesday, we reported on the re-nomination of Chai Feldblum for another term as EEOC commissioner. Feldblum is a leading gay rights activist and an architect of President Obama’s LGBT agenda, including the notion that denying certain men (biologically speaking) access to women’s restroom facilities is unlawful discrimination. The Feldblum nomination struck me as a betrayal of social conservatives, a key portion of President Trump’s base. Trump is sympathetic, as »

Report: White House trying to sneak LGBT activist through committee

Featured image Earlier today, I reported on President Trump’s re-nomination of Chai Feldblum as EEOC commissioner. Feldblum is an LGBT activist and the architect of the Obama administration’s radical LGBT agenda, including its policy mandating that transgender individuals can use the restroom of their choice. She believes that in almost all cases where the sexual liberty of gays conflicts with religious belief, “sexual liberty should win because that’s the only way that »

Trump nominates architect of Obama LGBT policy for another EEOC term

Featured image In 2009, President Obama nominated Chai Feldblum, a leading gay rights activist, for a spot on the five-person Equal Employment Commission. Her nomination inflamed social conservatives. As a result, in March 2010, Obama placed her on the EEOC without Senate confirmation, through a recess appointment. In December of that year, the Senate finally confirmed her for a term ending in 2013. In 2013, the Senate confirmed her for a second term. »
