Subscriber bonus post! Woke, lawbreaking Fla. school officials get their due; Mr. Makis documents excess deaths beyond argument; and clip of the latest terrific new conservative prime minister; more.
Good morning, loyal C&C supporters, it’s Sunday! As the Childers family continues soaking up holiday fun on our little getaway, I hope you enjoy this bonus pre-written roundup to tide you over. It includes some sanity news from Florida about a whole slate of woke school officials and their comeuppance, and summarizes three critically-important Substacks recently posted by Canadian doctor William Makis, who has been heroically tracking sudden deaths at great personal cost; and ends with a terrific clip of the latest conservative counter-revolutionary to assume power, this time in a first-world country.
And once again, THANK YOU for all your loyal support! It buoys my spirits whenever things get dicey and powers my engine of persistence through thick and thin.
To help make up for the lower-quality, pre-written posts this week, I’ve opened up the first story about Florida to everybody. Enjoy!
🗞💬 WORLD NEWS AND COMMENTARY 💬🗞
🔥 Behold this cautionary tale from the gender wars, a tragic story of deception, intrigue, and scandal, that ultimate resulted in a raft of woke South Florida school officials being suspended this week pending disciplinary review. The falderal framed Florida right back in corporate media’s crosshairs with what should have been a local story, but which triggered corporate media into making it international news.
Here’s the headline from Politico, December 12th:
Back in 2021, Florida passed its Fairness in Women’s Sports Act, which bans biological males from women’s sports teams. It applies from middle school through college, and even includes intramurals and club teams. A flurry of breathlessly hysterical lawsuits were filed even before Governor DeSantis put down his signing pen, but they were all rejected by federal judges.
One of the unsuccessful suing families had a transexual boy who was then playing on a girl’s high-school volleyball team at Monarch High in Broward County, Florida. The boy’s mother was an assistant coach, which explains a lot of what happened next. Insanely, despite the new law taking effect, Monarch quietly let the boy keep playing with the girls, probably under the temerarious theory that, since their lawsuit was pending, the new law would probably get thrown out before anybody could do anything about it.
Then the new law did not get thrown out. Instead, the lawsuits against the new law got thrown out. It was not what activists expected, since at that time, the trans train seemed to be steaming uphill, full speed ahead.
At that point, they knew they had a problem. The boy was still illegally playing on the girls’ team. The boy’s mom was the assistant volleyball coach, and she was a litigious trans activist (of course). To give you an idea of what kind of activist, according to her court documents, Jessica Norton concluded her son was really a girl trapped inside a little boy’s body when he was three years old.
Anyway, given all the moving parts and their own political preferences, not to mention complete disrespect for the law, Monarch officials decided to let the boy stay on the team while waiting to see what would happen with his lawsuit. But the lawsuit was dismissed. What would you do, if you were the Monarch High principal?
I don’t know what you would do, but Monarch’s principal James Cecil decided the best idea was to keep breaking the law. So Monarch let the boy keep playing, and just tried to keep it quiet. They created a miasmic fog of virtue-signaling balderdash and undermined parents who complained at school board meetings.
But eventually, the State of Florida found out.
Last week, Florida sanctioned Monarch High School for not following the new law. Specifically, Florida declared the boy ineligible to play any sports until November 2024. The school is now on athletic probation. Monarch was fined $16,500. The volleyball season was cancelled. Worst, Monarch school representatives must now attend humiliating “compliance seminars,” both this year and next, and then must host their own “eligibility and compliance” workshop on Monarch’s campus by next summer. On top of that, the State warned Monarch there could even be “more serious consequences.”
Neither Politico nor the Miami Herald (which it was citing) speculated about what the “more serious consequences might be.” But between the article’s lines, you can clearly make the words: “DeSantis doesn’t play.” The Governor has already removed at least three elected officials who refused to uphold laws and once yanked most of a rebellious school board.
Without any notice, Broward County’s Board members were abruptly put on notice their own jobs were in the crosshairs.
So it’s not too surprising that, following Monarch’s official sanctions, Broward suspended the whole lawbreaking cabal of woke school officials including: Monarch principal Cecil, assistant principal Kenneth May, athletic director Dione Hester, assistant girls’ volleyball coach and IT technician Jessica Norton (the boy’s mother), and head coach Alex Burgess. Get under the bus!
In other words, Broward suspended all the officials who conspired to keep the boy on the girl’s team for two years are Florida’s 2021 law passed. To be clear, I’m not happy about the hell the young man must be going through, but this case shows just how far the culture has moved in just a couple years.
Suggesting boys shouldn’t play girl’s volleyball used to get you sent straight to Facebook jail. To get us where we are now required: a Republican super-majority, the Governor, several federal judges, state officials, and a newly-compliant cerulean-blue Broward School Board. Media tried to inflate the outrage balloon this week but it collapsed limply on the grass. The best the sold-out Miami Herald could do was run headlines like this:
Poor babies. And, get ready to laugh. It’s hard to further lampoon this self-owning, hilarious headline from the New York Post:
Hahahaha! Good one. That’s right up there with I was just holding these drugs for my friend.
Buh bye! Viva la counter-revolution!
