Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for March 7, 2018, it is episode number 165 (!!) the Transgender Tariffs edition of the show with your stylish and classy hosts, Todd Feinburg, radio guy and Mike Stopa, nanophysicist. This week, as globalist Gary Cohn walks out the door at the White house, we talk about…transgender rights…but then we talk about Trump and the tariffs and the ascendency of the Forgotten Men and Women.

But topic number one: Delaware debates a bill that would allow children of age as young as five to obtain protection from their parents and would give them the right to choose their gender (and their race as well). Parental fascism has got to end! Let the state intervene! If the kid wants to make the transition who are the parents to be standing in the way. How on earth did this idea ever get to the point of even being a policy that is up for debate? Crikey!

Then, on to protecting American steel and aluminum. Gary Cohn (yeah, erstwhile Goldman Sachs CEO…that Gary Cohn) has left the White House, presumably in protest although that is not explicit. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out, Gary! Our buddy Ann Coulter had some nice things to say about the globalists last summer that (though we don’t discuss it explicitly) is worth linking: here. Why on earth has the Trump Administration been filled with people who never supported, nay, hated Trump from day one of his candidacy/ We will discuss.

We offer our shower thought per usual, and our hidden gem this week is a live version of Jimmy Cliff performing Many Rivers to Cross (ain’t that the truth!). Enjoy!

    It really goes against the narcissism charge when you point out that Trump had people he disagreed with in prominent positions.

    And was Cohn fired for disagreeing with Trump? Nope. He left. On his own. Because the elected president didn’t agree with him.

    Cohn is free to run for president himself if he thinks his ideas are better. He might have a hard time dodging the “narcissist” accusation, though.

    Harvard Lunch Guys,

    For my money, this is the single most frightening thing the left believes in. As far as I’m concerned a five-year-old choosing their gender is a sick joke. Actually following through and performing surgery or administering hormones is criminal behavior. Anyone, parent or otherwise, who would do this is a criminal. Let them be locked up. Let the State take the child. Anything would be better than to allow this abomination.

    Regards,

    Jim

    Jim I agree. One of the things that interests me about all this though is what kind of person would even suggest it??? What kind of life experience do you have to have in order to come to the conclusion that (a) it’s a good idea for *any* five year old to have gender reassignment surgery and (b) that the state in particular should in some cases make the decision over the objectives of the parents?

    It’s too easy to just dismiss it as evil. I want to know what kind of evil is it…what kind of twisting a human being went through to come to these conclusions.

    Mike,

    I can’t help you on this. Perhaps Jordan Peterson might have a professional opinion. To me, it has the ring of “Caligula”. A pure degeneracy that should be considered maximally frightening in terms of the state of our society. I don’t think we’re doomed quite yet but this kind of thing must be seen for what it is or we will be doomed.

    Regards,

    Jim

    re: Many Rivers to Cross, can’t recommend the documentary about Muscle Shoals enough (a measly $2.99 on YouTube should that be your platform of choice)

    there’s one hippy on there you want to shut up about nature, but other than that, solid about the music

    Mike, I hate sounding like an audio snob but your sound quality today was terrible. Am I mistaken or weren’t you recently talking about having a new microphone?

    Mister, unforgivable. The microphone was fine but the levels were way off on my mic. Sorry. Always striving to improve though.

    Not really. I think it reinforces the point that Pres. Trump is narcissistic. He doesn’t listen to those who may have some expertise about a subject. He just relies on his often uninformed instincts because, after all, “only I can fix.”

    And from where did this term “fedorkas” come? And how do you spell it?
