The IRS knows it would lose in court, but its threat against free speech remains. This results in the self-censoring of political speech that its proponents wanted all along.
The NBA announced on July 21 it will relocate the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte, blaming “the climate created by HB2” — North Carolina’s law, which liberals claim requires every multiple occupancy bathroom or changing facility to be designated for and only used by persons based on their biological sex. What the law actually does is remove government almost entirely from the equation by setting aside all city or county ordinances requiring private businesses to open all intimate facilities to transgenders based on their "gender identity."

Maya Dillard Smith, the director of the ACLU in Georgia, resigned her position late last month, citing inconsistencies in the organization’s position on transgender bathroom rights. While the ACLU has largely ignored her resignation and conservative media have painted it as a principled stand, the truth is that it indicates that Smith is as inconsistent as the organization she left. It also indicates why the wheels always come off the progressive liberal cart. A house divided cannot stand.
The Australia-based Walk Free Foundation released its 2016 Global Slavery Index on May 31, stating that an estimated 45.8 million people live in modern versions of slavery.
