California City Counsel is Now ‘100 percent LGBTQ’

Following Tuesday’s election, the city of Palm Springs is now a “100 percent LGBTQ” city counsel.

Equality California released statements about the election of the openly transgendered, Lisa Middleton. They celebrate the victory as a monumental step forward against the federal government.

“In light of the repeated attacks on transgender people from the federal government, tonight’s wins by Lisa Middleton in Palm Springs and other transgender candidates in Minneapolis and Virginia are a beacon of hope that voters have embraced values of equality and inclusion,” said the executive director of Equality California. “By becoming the first out transgender person to be elected to a nonjudicial office in California, Lisa is paving the way for others to follow in her footsteps in California and across the nation. Her first place finish out of a field of 6 candidates demonstrates that a glass ceiling for transgender people who want to serve in elected office was not only broken, but was shattered in Palm Springs. With the election of Lisa and Christy Holstege, the city of Palm Springs will now be represented by a city council that is 100 percent LGBTQ.”

What is the world coming to?
  • Jeff Baker

    Palm Springs is becoming another Sodom and Gemorah. Downtown is dying on the vine despite a new hotel ands few new stores. Pathetic!

  • disqus_rEWjgfyzIp

    CA has always been a land of where the fruits and nuts pick you instead of you picking them. And CA cant figure out why tourism is dying out in that state.

    Does the term go f__k yourself ring a bell?Oh wait they really can G.F.Themselievs

    • Tony De Angelis

      No longer a need to GFY when you can easily get someone else to do it for you.

      • kenistaz

        yup you got a point there

    Queer City, Ca. I don’t think anyone will be surprised.

  • parthenon1

    Palm Springs now the most Sexual Deviated city in the US and most likely the world ! Remember what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah (spelling ?)

    • Will

      Biblical scholars have long said that the Sin of Sodom was arrogance and unkindness and bad treatment to immigrants.nothing to do with sexual identity

      • Glenn Menke

        Amen, you know your bible. people love to twist the words of scripture to suite their own beliefs.

        • Tony De Angelis

          All interpretations are twists of the words as they were understood in the days they happened.

      • Tony De Angelis

        Your misinterpretation of the bible seems to differ from the misinterpretation of most other people. Hard to find reference to the word immigrants in most versions of the bible.

        • Will


          • Tony De Angelis

            Quite a stretch. A stranger can be someone living just down the road from you but an immigrant is someone who has arrived from a distant location outside the boundaries of their present location

            The angels were strangers from another land

      • Anthony Guastella

        Wrong. Better read the Scriptures again. The homosexuals were clamoring for the angels that came to Lot, to come out for their deviant pleasure. I would say that was sexual.

        • Will

          Incorrect. Straight men were going to rape the angels. Crime of violence, not of sex. Lot offered them his daughters instead. Btw, the Pentagon says far more men are raped in the armed services than women, by non Gay men. It’s violence, not sexual identity.

  • Teresa

    I was asked to go travel in California in 2018 my response was NO!!! I don’t think anyone, BUT a illegal, LGBTG, Antifa, Berkely students/ Professors, protestors, Hollywood perverts or Democrats are safe there. NORMALS aren’t welcomed since we have different values.

    I would be afraid I would be beaten, robbed, stabbed, shot, maybe murdered, sprayed with Mace, or sexually assaulted! California is NOT A SAFE place to go!!

    Also, I wouldn’t spend ONE DIME of my money there. I DON’T to support law breakers who are shielded from any repercussions, anti-Americans, perverts, thugs, or protestors!

    • ARJAY

      californication, is a NO GO zone!!!!

    • Joecolt

      I was about to Post something but it would only Echo yours, Thanks

    • Shane

      I wish that Southern California would leave the USA and become a separate country. The conservatives living there could move to other states. Cities like Los Angeles, Oakland, San Fran, Palm Springs and many others in Souther California are run by people with no loyalty to our country or federal government.

  • randolph.poole

    Of course it’s California! By the way, when are they going to secede from the Union? It’s not fast enough!

    • richard black

      and we got alot of LGBTQRST>>>>>>to send them there !!!

  • GlennVA

    Whoopee-do for the fruit bowl.

  • Maxine Simon

    I live in CA, Senior, Disabled and hoping & praying to get the hell out of here! Jerry Brown and all the other rats have destroyed CA. I live in a republican base far up North. Just don’t forget people, how Corupt, evil these demRats are and they do what ever they have to ,to get there Agenda through. As far as I am Concerned, Politicians are already picked and win, (NOT BY THE PEOPLE) .Its a Commie ran Dictator State. Corruption is Rapid and set up Major Election Fraud as it was in 2016 Election. This is a State where your VOTE really does not count.

    • Will

      If you want to see who the Commies are running, look at the White House and the GOP.

      • Freedom Rules

        This explains a lot about today’s Democratic Party.
        In an article published in late June, anti-communist analyst Trevor Loudon, author of the book The Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the US Congress, shined the spotlight on the multiple communists and “radical anti-American socialists” serving on the platform committee. Among the figures cited in the report are a number who have been involved in the “Democratic Socialists of America,” which Loudon described as “a communist group based on the theories of Italian Communist party theoretician Antonio Gramsci — an advocate of revolution through infiltration.” Other platform members were from what he referred to as “more traditionally communist groups.”

        “Most of these individuals could not pass an FBI background security check to sell you stamps at the Post Office,” Loudon argued in his June 26 article. “They would not be allowed to clean the toilets on any military base in this country. Yet they are drafting policies that will shape the lives of more than 300 million Americans. It is time for loyal Democrats to realize that their party is no longer the party of Harry Truman, or JFK. It has been hijacked at the highest levels by enemies of the U.S. Constitution and American freedom.”

        And indeed, there can be little doubt that some of the extremists identified by Loudon are hostile to the U.S. Constitution and the liberties of the American people. In fact, they say so themselves throughout the Democrat Party platform they drafted — a document that includes brazen attacks even on constitutionally protected liberties such as free speech, and of course flagrantly denies even the right to life by promoting taxpayer-funded killing of unborn children across America and worldwide. The fact that the extremists were appointed with the support or at least tacit approval of leading Democrats, including Hillary Clinton and DNC boss Debbie Wasserman Schultz, also speaks volumes.

        Several of the socialists identified by Loudon are affiliated with the Democratic Socialists of America, the nation’s largest and most prominent socialist organization. Aside from promoting dangerous tyranny and constitutional subversion in the United States, the DSA is also an affiliate of the totalitarian global alliance of communists and socialists known as the Socialist International. The SI, of course, is a world socialist government-promoting outfit that includes numerous murderous political parties from around the globe. So extreme is the global outfit that its 24th Congress in 2012 was hosted by a Marxist political party whose president was at the time busy advocating genocide of minorities on national television.

        Another dangerous outfit well-represented on the Democrat Party’s platform committee is the Communist Party USA, once a tentacle of the mass-murdering Soviet regime in the United States. However, the presence of CPUSA friends and activists on the Democrat Party’s key committee guiding the party’s positions is hardly a surprise. Last year, the CPUSA’s boss, John Bachtell, even boasted openly that his Marxist-Leninist organization “utilizes” the increasingly radical Democratic Party to advance its totalitarian objectives in the United States. “At this stage we are about building the broad people’s movement led by labor that utilizes the vehicle of the Democratic Party to advance its agenda,” Bachtell wrote to his supporters.

        The first anti-American socialist highlighted by Loudon is Dr. Cornel West, a supporter of socialist Bernie Sanders and a supposed “theologian” who does not even bother to conceal his radical socialist views and extreme agenda. In fact, after decades of membership, West also became Honorary Chair of the Democratic Socialists of America. West also founded the socialist New Party in the 1990s and has produced a great deal of Marxist propaganda, including, among other resources, the book The Ethical Dimensions of Marxist Thought. He has been a pioneer in exploring how race-mongering and fanning race hatred can be exploited by socialists to advance their totalitarian agenda.

        Also cited by Loudon is Representative Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), another Sanders supporter who, among other controversies, has been a supporter of the radical Nation of Islam. Despite his open advocacy for homosexuality, Ellison is the first “Muslim” elected to the U.S. Congress. He is also “a longtime associate of the Minnesota Communist Party,” according to Loudon. “Keith Ellison has held several meetings in the home of recently deceased Minnesota Communist Party leader Erwin Marquit, was elected with the help of teams of communist phone bankers and has contributed an article to the Communist Party USA‘s People’s World website,” Loudon explained. Indeed, the CPUSA’s propaganda mouthpiece even promoted Ellison’s campaign for Congress, calling him a “fresh progressive” and “established progressive leader.”

        Another socialist helping to write the Democrat platform is Obama’s former “climate czar” Carol Browner. Plenty of the “qualifications” on her résumé ought to raise eyebrows for Americans concerned about freedom and sovereignty. Perhaps most alarming, though, is Browner’s leadership seat on the Socialist International’s “Commission for a Sustainable World Society,” which openly sought to impose “global governance” on humanity and “promote socialist ideas and work towards this objective at international level” under the guise of dealing with supposed man-man global warming. Browner also has a long history of working with extremist groups, including an outfit known as “Citizen Action” founded by former Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) radicals.

        Numerous other extremists with troubling track records of totalitarian, anti-constitutional extremism are also listed among the platform committee’s members. Representative Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.), for example, is “a former member of the pro-Cuba, Marxist-Leninist Puerto Rican Socialist Party,” Loudon explained, adding that Gutierrez, an open-borders activist, was also involved with a Maoist group and the socialist New Party. Gutierrez is currently in hot water for showering hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign funds on his wife and daughters.

        Also listed is Paul Booth, a Big Labor organizer for government workers and a DSA leader whose group has helped train “thousands of community organizers in Saul Alinsky tactics.” Alinsky dedicated his book on how to seize power to Lucifer. Representative Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), described by Loudon as “a longtime associate of Democratic Socialists of America and the Communist Party USA,” is also on the platform committee. Lee, who has been to Communist Party-ruled Cuba more than 20 times, was also a secret member of the Communist Party breakaway group Committees of Correspondence.

        Of course, none of this is a new phenomenon. In a March 1999 exposé of socialists and communists in Congress by The New American, Robert W. Lee showed how the “House Progressive Caucus,” founded by avowed socialists and communists, was becoming increasingly influential while attempting to conceal its extremism behind lofty rhetoric. Indeed, many of those identified had a long and dangerous history of working with America’s sworn communist enemies to subvert the U.S. Constitution and promote tyranny worldwide. Today, the extremists are more powerful than ever, and, along with their globalist comrades, practically run the Democrat Party.

        Unsurprisingly, the Democrat Party’s draft platform reflects the dangerous extremism of the committee that wrote it. That is bad news for America. Indeed, if it were to be implemented, what remains of the Judeo-Christian foundations of America, the U.S. Constitution, and the liberties it protects would all be obliterated, along with America’s remaining prosperity. Americans who value the U.S. Constitution and the liberties it protects should educate others about the dangerous cast of characters that helped write the Democrat Party’s agenda.

          What horseshit. We have a non reading president kissing the butt of ex KGB assasin, Putin , and believes his word that Russia didn’t mess with our elections, when ALL of our intellegiance agencies say they did. A large section of
          Republican electorate receives huge money from the former communists, and the son in law appears to be billions in debt to them. Btw socialism hAs nothing to do w communism. Do you like the fire department? That’s socialism.

          • Anthony Guastella

            You are totally blind to the facts and spew repeated nonsense because of your extreme bigotry. The truth is unimportant you or the welfare of our nation and its citizens. Zombie follower.

  • Maxine Simon

    Just what is needed, More mental people in Goverment.

  • rivahmitch

    Answer to that final question above is “HELL”!

    • Glenn Menke

      there be with you for JUDGING and Condemming

      • Anthony Guastella

        Maybe you should read scripture a bit closer, those that follow the Lord will even judge the Angels. We are taught to not judge another brother before taking the speck out of our own eye, metaphorically speaking. Judgement in behavior is not wrong and following what is an abomination is. No nation that has officially embraced perversion has ever prospered or did not fall mightily. Might want to read history.

  • disqus_VuylvlbZ5g

    what took them so long??

  • Will

    You guys do know that California supplies far more money to the fed govt than it uses, don’t you? And that red states are approx twice more dependent on fed aid than blue states? Get real; millions of Americans save money all year hoping for a few days in California. Congratulations to Palm Springs! Most likely they will be concerned about representing all

  • Rich Kenny

    Hey Palm Springs, did you ever hear of “Sodom and Gomorrah”? You have sinned against the word of the LORD and are subjected to be destroyed. (Read Genesis: starting with chapter 14…) Heed the warmings….

  • Tony De Angelis

    Normal is no longer fashionable.

  • gomurr

    How exciting. I’m sure everyone in Ca is thrilled. Let’s all vote based on race, gender, and sexual orientation, now. Because white ain’t right, and straight is bent.

  • William

    Why should there be such a great commotion about a lawyer who is “100% LGBTQ? That’s what ‘counsel’ means, as in “On advice of counsel, I invoke my Fifth Amendment rights”. You obviously meant ‘council’, as in “The City Council met tonight…” Does no one run a spell checking program or proofread their stories?
    I know that this is a minor thing, but, whenever I read stuff like this, it seems to jump off the screen at me.

    • GomeznSA

      Ya beat me to it – that’s what I get for not reading all of the comments first.

      • William

        What also gets my goat is the use of “your” and “you’re”. I actually saw a billboard sign that read “Is there a diamond in you’re future?” Also the constant misuse of “there”,their”, and “they’re”. These words are not interchangeable. I’m not a language expert, but surely these people should have been trained to be more precise in their (or is it there? maybe they’re?) writing. Just saying.

  • Alan404

    Who they sleep with being a secondary consideration to how they perform in office. As to that, time will tell.

    Truly a sad situation!

      flakes, you forgot the flakes, they are needed to complete the granola. Seems like everybody forgets the flakes ;-( (their union will probably get mad about the exclusion)

  • artalem

    What did you expect from that haven of A–Holes!

  • Tim Barbre

    I only hope they voted for it because of its ideas and stands on issues. I have no problem with that even though I don’t support their life choice. If they voted for it because it was a transgender then they are pure idiots and deserve what they get. Knowing California it’s the latter. Their always voting on social issues instead of fiscal common sense issues government needs to be addressing. At least I know when God gives the world an enema I don’t live where the nipple goes. Ha Ha

  • GomeznSA

    Counsel – you mean to tell me that Palm Springs is dispensing free legal advice, or perhaps medical information? I think the word you are grasping for is ‘council’ 😉
    Sorry, I try NOT to be the grammar/spelling police but errors of this magnitude need to be pounced on.

  • patrick sain

    Sick freaks take over California I’m glad I don’t live their I’d be moving out fast to another state

  • zookeeper216

    Eventually the state will implode on it’s own. Then we can sit back and laugh.

  • Bishop351

    First, who cares? Second, who cares? Third: idiots have always been the mainstay of City counsels. If you can’t do anything productive: run for political office.

  • Anthony Guastella

    Talk about severe penalties from the Lord for such blatant and arrogant actions. These people where the badge of perversion and follow satanism as if it was the holy grail. This, in itself, is illegal and a serious violation of numerous state and federal anti-discrimination laws. Jesus will prevail no matter what these self centered and arrogant people say or do.

  • duncmck

    THIS IS LECUTUSETTE OF BORG “resistance is futile”its the people that are watching this cartoon and take it serious is what worries me personally .whos is being attacked ? people that think 2+2 = pink feel uncomfortable because of their reason? being attacked? funny!!

  • pcabal

    Please USA remember that California does not belong to anybody else than to the USA. So far, and for the last 30 years, the Citizens have not guarded their integrity and they were taken over by martians. The good part is that no matter how many times they play the Choo-Choo train they never get pregnant; I thank the Lord for not letting them breed, not even “mules”.
