Transgender bathroom ruling

February 14, 2018

The Trump Department of Education announced that it will no longer investigate complaints made by transgender students who are upset at being barred from school bathrooms and locker rooms of the sex they identify with. That controversy stemmed from an Obama-era guidance document that interpreted the Title IX law against sexual discrimination to apply to “gender identity.” It led to nationwide protests that it violated the privacy and safety of women and young girls. The objection wasn’t against actual transgender people but that it allowed any male, including peeping toms, rapists and molesters, to enter women’s most private domains simply by claiming they identified as female.

LGBTQ activists are decrying the decision as a rollback of transgender rights, but the DOE says there was never any right to use the bathroom of your choice. It never legally existed because Presidents don't have the Constitutional authority to rewrite laws; and lawmakers in 1972 clearly did not intend for a law against sex discrimination to ban separate bathrooms and lockers for males and females. The DOE says they will still defend transgender students against bullying and discrimination. But transgender people need to do what anyone else would have to do if they want the law changed: lobby Congress to do it.

The claim that this is an attack on LGBTQ rights is of a piece with the claim that Trump’s rescinding of Obama's DACA program was an attack on children of illegal immigrants. Trump has said he favors a deal to protect the DACA “Dreamers,” but Obama did not have the Constitutional authority to create a new immigration law via executive order (even Obama said so on multiple occasions before he did it anyway, citing the hitherto-unknown Constitutional principal that if Congress won't do what the President asks, then the President can just do it himself because...urgency!) If Trump hadn’t sent DACA back to Congress, there was already a lawsuit by multiple states to overturn it; and they would have won because the program was plainly unconstitutional.

I already wrote this week of the dangers of allowing yourself to be misled by fuzzy partisan language into believing the negative spin on political opponents' motives. If you look at the actions Trump has taken, from rolling back Obama’s EOs to appointing strict constructionist judges, they are not attacks on any minority group nor attempts to expand executive power. They are attempts to reinstate the rule of law and Constitutional limits on and separation of powers.

Considering how much the left rants about Trump being a wannabe Hitler, you’d think they would be relieved that he’s actually trying to reestablish limits on his own office's power that were flagrantly violated by the previous Administration. His critics say one thing, but their actions prove that they really have no problem with a President acting like a dictator, as long as he dictates stuff they want.

    In the school district where I reside, there is controversy over a transgender bathroom usage issue. A letter from the elementary was sent to parents stating that transgender students at the elementary will be permitted to utilize the restroom that conforms to his or her gender identity.
    Following the receipt of this letter, a member of the community addressed the issue at a school board meeting. This parent had done his research and spoke very well against the school's policy regarding this issue. According to the local newspaper which reported on the board meeting, "the letter sent to parents shared the guidance from the school attorney who cited the case of Whitaker v. Kenosha Unified School District No. 1 Board of Education. In that case, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals 'determined that a policy that required an individual to use a bathroom that does not conform with his or her gender identity punished the individual for his or her gender non-conformance, which in turn violated Title IX."
    According to your article, Gov. Huckabee, "the DOE says there was never any right to use the bathroom of your choice. It never legally existed because Presidents don't have the Constitutional authority to rewrite laws; and lawmakers in 1972 clearly did not intend for a law against sex discrimination to ban separate bathrooms and lockers for males and females. The DOE says they will still defend transgender students against bullying and discrimination. But transgender people need to do what anyone else would have to do if they want the law changed: lobby Congress to do it."
    So, here is my dilemma: your article says that transgender people need to lobby Congress if they want the law changed; the attorney for the school in my district is saying that if people want to see change (against the ruling in the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals) that they would need to engage in advocacy and contact their congressmen.
    The school's attorney thanked the member of the community for his comments, but explained that the protections of Title IX were expanded during the Obama Administration and that in order to overturn those expansions, a case would have to reach the United States Supreme Court, or the United States Congress would need to define Title IX. Until that happens, he stated, lawyers have to advise their clients to follow the law and the decision of the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.
    My question is: Since a President cannot change a law, does a ruling by a Circuit Court of Appeals have any authority, and would a local school district be charged with the task/expense of taking a case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court to keep separate bathrooms for males and females?
    Thank you for keeping the public informed with the truth. Please let me know what I need to do to see this situation remedied at my local elementary school.

    Thank you for this. My sister and I talk all the time about the illegal executive orders of President Obama; we could never understand how he got away with most of them and just figured it was because no one was paying attention. We both voted for President Trump and feel he is doing a great job thus far.

    Gov. Huckabee, I love your TV program! Thank you for giving us programming we can enjoy. Thank you also for your emails. You're a gentleman I feel I could sit down with to talk and feel comfortable. God is using you! And in answer to the Walgreens new stance, we can go to our local Walgreens and tell them why we won't be shopping there any more. Money talks and they will listen if enough of us tell them. May God continue to bless you, your family and Sara. She is doing a marvelous job in a difficult environment. Vera in Indiana

Pls protect them, Lord, strengthen them, help them to be careful with words and actions but also stand strong and to focus on You at all times. And thank You for folks like Mike Huckabee that help us to understand the rhetoric, garbage, and constitutionality of the issues.

    Keep up the good work, this is the first time I have responded because like most working Americans I don't have time to bitch and complain. The trouble is that good normal people keep quiet and just watch the game when they get a chance. We really need to start buying support Trump stickers to let the left know we really do out number them and without us paying for everything they would not have any money to give away (waste). The news media has gone off the rails so we really need people like yourself setting the record straight every chance you can. Thanks again, Ed

    For the most part, I am a fan of President Trump. I agree with his reversing President Obama's executive order and returning the DACA decision to Congress. Even though I approve of most of the "outcomes" of his numerous executive orders; I am NOT fond of executive orders per se - I feel they border on the way a dictator would "handle" matters...

    Mike,

    This is the most wonderful news there is. Children at any age in the education system do jot need to be subjected to this type of perversion. It does not help them to learn how to act socially. What is there to learn from men going into female restrooms and changing rooms with one purpose - to violate their privacy on all levels.

    This does not teach respect for others, respect for elders or respect for privacy in general.

    Each time I comment on this I am reminded of an incident in a women's restroom. My husband and I were travelling and we stopped at a rest stop. There was a line for the women's restroom. Once inside the actual large room and while waiting for an open stall two women who were standing in front of me suddenly turned around and made a startling comment unprovoked.

    They told me "very soon you will see men, transgendered in women's restrooms. They were both very happy over their comment. I repeatedly told them NO, not ever thinking their comment had any weight.

    I am so happy to Godly, wholesome action being taken.

    A great day in protecting the very valuable consciousness of our children.

    God Bless You

    Why is it that ONLY males (not men) who claim to be transgender - want freedom to enter women's restrooms and yet you have NO women wanting to enter male restrooms??????? And thousands of public places have "Family Restrooms", that only allow one person, or parent with a child of opposite sex into it - for fathers that need to take little girls when mothers are not present, and mothers to take little boys when fathers are not present.
    The ONLY reason this got started in the first place is that barry soetoro is a queer - and lives with (no legal record of marriage) to michael/michelle robinson who is a MAN. So I would like to see President Trump cancel all this crap and go back to what has been since society started.

Every day a say a prayer for President Trump and thank GOD for sending him to us just when we really needed someone like him. If he could run for 3 terms, I elect him every time. We need to get our Country back where it belongs. In the hand of normal people. God Bless America, President Trump and you too Mike Huckabee.

    Absolutely the Left wants a dictator to dictate only what they want - go back through history of the Left from Lenin to Stalin to Gorbachev; Hitler to Hitler; Castro to Castro; Mao to Xi; you name it, and it is all the same. First it is a minority, then a majority, then consolidation of power. And then it becomes a minority again, but in charge ordering everyone around upon pain of imprisonment or death. Look at the trajectory of poor, beautiful Venezuela from Chavez to Maduro, and then you see where there are Americans who want this for America?? If Americans don't keep the current government going for a few terms to convince more people that our country comes first, the Left will come back with such a catastrophic vengeance, that patriots will have to take to the streets in order to survive. Crazy? Listen to what the Left leadership and minions say every day (about you; your country) then decide.

    Dear Gov. Huckabee:

    First of all, thank you for all you do and for your common sense and commentaries. The Trump administration has been chaotic, even aside from the fake news and misrepresentations made about him. But he is also accomplishing necessary good works. Along with nominating Justice Gorsuch, the rollback of Obama's illegal locker room and bathroom mandate against all public school students has been the best thing the administration has done. This is the next step necessary for common sense protection of the safety and privacy of every child. Of course, whenever good is done, evil objects and retaliates. The LGBT advocates (not all LGBT people) want nothing less than for every person to abdicate ALL acts based on faith in God, and instead join them in living out acts of perversion and rebellion against Him and His Will. And they are constantly enlisting governments and corporations, who they have stacked for decades with their people for this moment, to punish all who do not obey their agenda. So when they scream out about such actions as this taken by Trump, of course it's a sign that the right step was taken. They actually are aggressively trying to FORCE all children to shower with persons of the opposite gender, including adults, and trying to punish all who oppose this insanity. Gender identity is the delusion that they have dreamed up as their basis. So God Bless you, President Trump, and all who are fighting the destruction of quality of life in the U.S.

    transgenders can use the single bathroom for handicapped persons because they are mentally confused
    about what is between their legs. You can't change DNA......If you haven't had gender reassignment surgery,
    use the bathroom that corresponds with your plumbing. And keep it to yourself....we are tired of hearing

    Well Mike, I have to agree with you on the undesirability and the risks of any one physically a male using the woman's bathroom.. If one has the 'male tool' use the men's room; if one does not have the 'tool' use the ladies room !. If some male equipped individual wants to wear a dress while taking a leak in the men's room it is ok by me as long as I am not asked to hold the purse !

    Re “Democrat wins ...”
    I believe the Republican party is too splintered to rally their base. While the Dems unit behind their leaders, the Reps tend to fight amongst themselves. Until the party unites, its chances of winning are not very good. The differences of opinion needs to be worked out in committee and not on the floor! Trump won because the heartland heard his message and believed. He is also an outsider and not a politician. Although that could be debated. Not withstanding, his allegiance is to the people and not some contributors.
    I also view the Dems as the party of “NO”. Yet, they called the prior minority the part the party of no!
    Take their rebuttal memo on the hearings. The majority submitted a statement of 4 pages or less and did not comprise policy or procedures. The minority’s draft was rejected for including those very items – meaning it would have to be redacted. Then they would howl and scream!

    Governor Huckabee: We all know that "GLBT Rights" under the Obama Administration was very little about actual GLBT Rights. Rather, it was mostly a convenient progressive left social engineering tool to be used to attack and undermine traditional values and traditional institutions. It was a major enabler for Obama's "Fundamental Transformation," that most of us really didn't want.

    Enjoy your analysis of current events. You seem to hit things mid-center and that's good. There are good and bad on both sides but just plain common sense should rule sometimes , i.e. transgenders using the bathroom of their choice. Give me a break. it definitely leaves it open for any sort of deviate to stroll into the bathroom that they want to. Again common sense. Thanks for your insights.

Whether it is true or not, I am so tired of having all the LBGTQABCASDF shoved down my throat!!!!! Tired of all the racist accusations! Soon the White House will be protested against until it is painted black!
    Mr. Huckabee, I have always admired you and respected you. You are a voice for us forgotten about middle-class, Christian people. My husband and I are retired and concerned about the future of our grandchildren. Please keep us informed.

These people make me tired...they know what they are - being born either male or female. They also know that they have "rights" as human beings - just like the rest of us. Their LGBTQ "rights" are actually their "choices" - if only they could see/understand how stupid they look/sound spouting off about something most decent, God-fearing people don't even think twice about.

    To bad a handful of gender terrorists can get so much attention. I also agree with the DOE that our laws are for the protection of girls an women and not to discriminate. I for one don't care what people want to call themselves but this society was established by men and women and not alternative beings or things. I am happy to be a man and I love the fact that the other gender is a woman. Just a small addition I read your article every day and thank you for being on the conservative side.

(I still proudly wear one of the three "TRUMP Make America Great Again" caps) I also still wear my Huckabee 2016 golf shirt from when I supported (and still do) you in the primary. Sorry, but now I am really hoping to see Sarah Huckabee Sanders 2020!!! Seriously!

    Trump Does The Unthinkable by Liz Crokin

    > As an entertainment journalist, I've had the opportunity to cover Trump for over a decade, and in all my years covering him I've never heard anything negative about the man until he announced he was running for president. Keep in mind, I got paid a lot of money to dig up dirt on celebrities like Trump for a living so a scandalous story on the famous billionaire could've potentially sold a lot of magazines and would've been a Huge feather in my cap.

    > Instead, I found that he doesn't drink alcohol or do drugs, he's a hardworking businessman.

    > On top of that, he's one of the most generous celebrities in the world with a heart filled with more gold than his $100 million New York penthouse.

    > Since the media has failed so miserably at reporting the truth about Trump, I decided to put together some of the acts of kindness he's committed over three decades which has gone virtually unnoticed or fallen on deaf ears.

    > • In 1986, Trump prevented the foreclosure of Annabell Hill's family farm after her husband committed suicide. Trump personally phoned down to the auction to stop the sale of her home and offered the widow money. Trump decided to take action after he saw Hill's pleas for help in news reports.

    > • In 1988, a commercial airline refused to fly Andrew Ten, a sick Orthodox Jewish child with a rare illness, across the country to get medical care because he had to travel with an elaborate life-support system. His grief stricken parents contacted Trump for help and he didn't hesitate to send his own plane to take the child from Los Angeles to New York so he could get his treatment.

    > • In 1991, 200 Marines who served in Operation Desert Storm spent time at Camp Lejune in North Carolina before they were scheduled to return home to their families. However, the Marines were told that a mistake had been made and an aircraft would not be able to take them home on their scheduled departure date. When Trump got wind of this, he sent his plane to make two trips from North Carolina to Miami to safely return the Gulf War Marines to their loved ones.
    >
    >
    > • In 1995, a motorist stopped to help Trump after the limo he was traveling in got a flat tire. Trump asked the Good Samaritan how he could repay him for his help. All the man asked for was a bouquet of flowers for his wife. A few weeks later Trump sent the flowers with a note that read: We've paid off your mortgage
    >
    >
    > • In 1996, Trump filed a lawsuit against the city of Palm Beach, Florida, accusing the town of discriminating against his Mar-a-Lago resort club because it allowed Jews and blacks. Abraham Foxman, who was the Anti-Defamation League Director at the time, said Trump put the light on Palm Beach not on the beauty and the glitter, but on its seamier side of discrimination. Foxman also noted that Trump's charge had a trickle-down effect because other clubs followed his lead and began admitting Jews and blacks.

    >
    > • In 2000, Maury Povich featured a little girl named Megan who struggled with Brittle Bone Disease on his show and Trump happened to be watching. Trump said the little girl's story and positive attitude touched his heart. So he contacted Maury and gifted the little girl and her family with a very generous check.
    >
    >
    > • In 2008, after Jennifer Hudson's family members were tragically murdered in Chicago, Trump put the Oscar-winning actress and her family up at his Windy City hotel for free. In addition to that, Trump's security took extra measures to ensure Hudson and her family members were safe during such a difficult time.

    > • In 2013, New York bus driver Darnell Barton spotted a woman close to the edge of a bridge staring at traffic below as he drove by. He stopped the bus, got out and put his arm around the woman and saved her life by convincing her to not jump When Trump heard about this story, he sent the hero bus driver a check simply because he believed his good deed deserved to be rewarded.
    >
    >
    > • In 2014, Trump gave $25,000 to Sgt. Andrew Tamoressi after he spent seven months in a Mexican jail for accidentally crossing the US-Mexico border. President Barack Obama couldn't even be bothered to make one phone call to assist with the United States Marine's release; however, Trump opened his pocketbook to help this serviceman get back on his feet.
    >
    >
    > • In 2016, Melissa Consin Young attended a Trump rally and tearfully thanked Trump for changing her life. She said she proudly stood on stage with Trump as Miss Wisconsin USA in 2005. However, years later she found herself struggling with an incurable illness and during her darkest days she explained that she received a handwritten letter from Trump telling her she's the bravest woman, I know. She said the opportunities that she got from Trump and his organizations ultimately
    > provided her Mexican-American son with a full-ride to college.
    >
    >
    > • Lynne Patton, a black female executive for the Trump Organization, released a statement in 2016 defending her boss against accusations that he's a racist and a bigot. She tearfully revealed how she's struggled with substance abuse and addiction for years. Instead of kicking her to the curb, she said the Trump Organization and his entire family loyally stood by her through immensely difficult times.
    >
    >
    > Donald Trump's kindness knows no bounds and his generosity has and continues to touch the lives of people from every sex, race and religion. When Trump sees someone in need, he wants to help. Two decades ago, Oprah asked Trump in a TV interview if he'd run for president. He said: ' If it got so bad, I would never want to rule it out totally, because I really am tired of seeing what's happening with this country.'
    >
    >
    > That day has come
    >
    > Trump sees that America is in need and he wants to help. How unthinkable!
    >
    > On the other hand. have you ever heard of Hillary or Obama ever doing such things with their own resources?
    >
    > Now that's really unthinkable! Might be worth passing on!!!
    >
    > Just shows we hired the right guy. If Hollywood and the media ever get off his ass, he'll do many good things for this country...

    As a retired high school teacher, I was appalled at the thought of students being allowed to choose the restroom that matched the gender with which they "identified." Under the leadership of a flaky principal, a few silly teens would have created a horrible environment for modest young people. Talk about chaos! On a national level, the fact that we were even having these ongoing, absurd discussions was frustrating, exasperating, and embarrassing. Why was the left so fixated on such asinine discourse?

    I just wanted to comment on the unfortunate school shooting yesterday in Florida. Before Vice President Pence took office and he was Governor of Indiana, I believe he signed a bill for a school security system by the name of NetTalon to be implemented in the schools. This is a system set up to automatically lock each classroom door and flood the halls with a smoke like substance to cause the shooter confusion and not to see the hallways. One of the schools in Shelbyville, Indiana was installed with the NetTalon system which automatically notified the police where they could see exactly what was going on with installed cameras in the school. I would appreciate if you wouldn't mind looking into this system and forward it on to President Trump and remind Vice President Pence of it also. Thank you so much!

    It's about time we started getting some common sense and legality back into Obama's illegal rulings.

    Obama made such a mess of our society it is going to be near impossible to get back on the right track. The transgender excuse is nothing more than just that, an excuse so these perverts can get in to women's rest room where they do not belong.

    I think there needs to be a law passed that when a Liberal speaks he should have to take an oath that he is speaking only the truth and nothing but the truth and that he/she/it are not spinning or twisting facts to confuse the public for their strictly political purposes and not for the overall benefit to our nation. jack

    I would say or ask, where did these people go to the bathroom before? And why do rules have to change for a minority ,I always thought, the majority ruled(not anymore). What a black day in the history of this dear USA, when Obama became president. God bless Donald Trump and all he has done, and will do
