Feds win round in legal fight over Obama transgender bathroom policy

Obama wins round in trans bathroom challengeThe Obama administration has won an early round in the legal battle over its drive to require local schools to allow transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms that correspond to the students' gender identity.

On Tuesday, a federal magistrate in Chicago recommended that a judge reject a preliminary injunction in which a group of students and parents sought to block enforcement of that policy and reverse local policies allowing a transgender girl to use girls' locker rooms at a high school in Palatine, Illinois.


Extremist militias recruiting in fear of Clinton winning election, activists say

US militiaIn the past 12 months, Jessica Campbell has had her car’s fuel line cut and its wheel nuts loosened. Late last year, she had a GPS tracker surreptitiously attached to her vehicle. She is now accustomed to being tailed by unfamiliar vehicles on Interstate 5 near her home in Cottage Grove, just outside Eugene, Oregon. Strangers have regularly come uninvited onto her property; someone even stripped the barbed wire on her fence “just to send a message”. Online, she has repeatedly been threatened with rape and death.

And last week, when she showed up at the Canyon City community hall in Grant County, she told me that someone shot at her and her entourage. They misread their GPS, took a wrong turn and stopped to get their bearings when a crack rang out with what Campbell thought was a .22 bullet whizzing by their vehicle.

Judge Issues Summons For Chris Christie In Potential New Bridgegate Case

Christie A New Jersey municipal court judge issued a summons for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Thursday, seemingly in relation to Christie’s alleged involvement to the closure of two lanes on the George Washington Bridge in 2013 in a supposed act of political retaliation.

Roy McGeady, presiding judge of the municipal courts of Bergen County, issued the summons, in what could become a new state prosecution. The summons will require Christie to appear in court but does not give law enforcement the authority to arrest him. The case will now go to the Bergen County prosecutor’s office, which will determine whether to indict Christie, NBC New York reported. Bill Brennan, an activist, filed the complaint, the outlet reported.

Christie has denied any knowledge of the lane closures.
