Writer Who Ignited Spark Starting Revolt Against Transgender Athletes in Women’s Sports Punished



There was a major backlash this year for the first time against Pride Month, and much of the trend can be credited back to a brave writer who broke a story in December 2021 about a transgender athlete competing in female sports. For this, he has been drastically shadowbanned on Twitter, which has unfortunately not been corrected under the new fairer leadership of Elon Musk. While Twitter (recently renamed to X) has become the most powerful media platform in the world, allowing formerly suppressed conservative journalists (including myself) to thrive, Chris Tremoglie remains mostly invisible, punished for his groundbreaking work that has helped women and girls everywhere. 

Tremoglie, a commentary writer for the Washington Examiner, attended classes with swimmer Lia Thomas at the University of Pennsylvania. On Dec. 14, 2021, he broke the story of Thomas racing with the female swim team. “Thomas set a new Ivy League ‘female’ record in the 500-meter freestyle on Friday,” Tremoglie wrote in the piece, titled “The University of Pennsylvania is Oppressing Females.” He argued, “No mother or father should have to worry about daughters losing opportunities because of transgenderism’s radical hatred of women.” 

Tremoglie followed up with an interview of one of the female swimmers on the team, which landed him a spot on Fox & Friends. “She compares herself to Jackie Robinson,” the anonymous teammate told Tremoglie. “She said she is like the Jackie Robinson of trans sports. … “She laughs about it and mocks the situation … she’s not sympathetic or empathetic at all.”

Tremoglie’s work was cited in a Federalist Society report, Gender Identity Policy Under the Biden Administration. It referenced his exclusive article about how both UPenn and the Philly DA ignored complaints about Thomas’s nudity in the women’s locker room. 

Shortly afterwards, Tremoglie noticed his Twitter engagement drastically dropped and he was no longer accumulating new followers. It became impossible for others to type in his name or username and find his account easily, and when people went to his page, it contained a warning over it, “Caution: This profile may include potentially sensitive content,” requiring the user to click “yes” in order to view the page. A shadowban checking site shows that his account has both a search suggestion and search ban on it.

Nothing changed after Musk bought Twitter, even though other conservative journalists were freed from the biased algorithm. Twitter has not responded to his requests. Even though he has taken immense efforts to obtain new followers, which the rest of us conservative journalists don’t have to do in the Musk era — we’re now easily getting new followers organically just like the lefty media has always been able to do — he remains stuck at 13,700.

Despite the ongoing censorship, Tremoglie hasn’t let up covering the controversy. In December, he published the amusing “2022’s Man of the Year: Lia Thomas.” Tremoglie said, “[W]hile I presume Thomas was just a college student with a mental health problem who just wanted to swim … Thomas was the poster boy of the LGBT genderless world and utopia the Left hoped to create.” 

Now, instead of being canceled for “dead naming” transgenders, Tremoglie helped turn the tide around so people can speak more freely about this radical agenda without censorship. Swimmers like Riley Gaines have started speaking up, and legislation is passing around the country to keep women’s and girls’ sports for females only. People began objecting to medical gender transitions for youth, until the pushback fully expanded in June, as stores like Target were forced to dismantle their pride displays due to anger over the extreme LGBTQ+ agenda. 

Thanks to trailblazers like Tremoglie, combined with Musk’s takeover of Twitter, others are now free to state their opinions about transgender extremism on Twitter. But Tremoglie’s still paying the price. Even though he’s as clever as Cat Turd on Twitter, his journalism receives no boost. If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? 

Tremoglie isn’t the only one who continues to encounter unfair shadowbanning under the Musk era. Jordan Conradson, The Gateway Pundit’s Arizona reporter, is so shadowbanned that when you quote tweet him, his tweets don’t show up unless you click on them. Conradson is considered one of the best reporters in Arizona and somewhat of a prodigy at only 21; his articles regularly get hundreds of comments, but he only has 21,200 followers on Twitter due to the ongoing shadowban. 

Mark Mendlovitz, one of the funniest conservatives on Twitter, told me only his followers interact with him since he’s being hidden from others. This may be due to a new policy that counts blocks against visibility: If numerous left-wingers block a conservative, the algorithm reduces their visibility. Mendlovitz has become legendary at refuting trolls, especially on the topic of election fraud, who then angrily block him, so sadly he’s paying for it. Ever since Musk allowed conservatives to be treated equally on Twitter, their new prominence has made them prime targets for the left’s paid trolls. So it’s not like Mendlovitz can easily escape the trolls. 

Maybe these stalwart conservatives have been overlooked because they’re not cute 20-something conservative female “influencers.” Whatever the reason, it’s unfair that they are being sharply suppressed on the number one media site in the world, which is supposed to have dropped the bias against conservatives. In today’s era, it’s difficult to get traction as a conservative journalist now without Twitter since the rest of big tech massively censors us. 

We’re just asking for a little fairness that was overlooked. Others posting about transgenders in sports are no longer shadowbanned, so Tremoglie should be treated equally. The rest of big tech is a lost cause, but since Musk has finally given conservatives one big tech platform that doesn’t discriminate against them, which is amazingly now the most powerful media platform in the world, tell Musk to stop the shadowbanning of these important voices.

Your Days Do Not Have to Race By

Much of what you experience each day, in terms of the passage of time, is based on your perception



Whenever you feel you’re racing the clock or trying to tackle too much at once, try this exercise:

Close your eyes for a minute. Imagine a pleasant scene. You might be surrounded by trees or with a loved one. It could be something from childhood. Let the emotions of that place and time pervade you. Get into it! Give yourself more than a minute for the visualization to take hold.

Open your eyes and return to what you’re doing. Whatever care or task you’re working on is not quite so bad and your pace is never quite so feverish. Realistically, much of what you experience each day, in terms of the passage of time, is based on your perception. You can slow down time if you choose.

Pause and Reflect

Imagine you’re flying on an airplane. You have a window seat, and it’s a clear day. As you gaze down to the ground below, what do you see? Life passing by. Cars the size of ants. Miniature baseball diamonds. Rivers the size of streams. There’s something about being at great heights that enables you reflect on your life.

The same phenomenon can take place from the top of a mountain or skyscraper. As often as practical things seem to be racing by too fast, seek higher ground, literally, for a clearer perspective.

If you’re among the lucky, perhaps you regularly allocate time for reflection or meditation. If you don’t, it’s no matter. There are other ways to make it all “slow down.”

After the workday, listen to relaxing music and close your eyes. A half hour of your favorite music with your eyes closed and no disturbances can seem almost endless. When you re-emerge, the rest of the day takes on a different tenor.

An effective method for slowing down time and catching up with today is periodically deleting three items from your “to do list” without doing them at all. Before you shriek, consider that much of what makes your list is arbitrary.

In most cases, eliminating three items won’t impact your career or life, except for freeing up a little time for yourself in the present.

A Change in Medium

I have long used water to reduce stress. For eleven years, I lived in a high-rise condominium in Falls Church, Virginia, complete with its own 25 meter pool. No matter how hard I worked during the day, even if I did a 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. stint, at 6:05 p.m. I was in the pool. After 30 minutes of laps, I had swum out many of the stresses and strains of the day.

Now that I live in North Carolina, more rural by comparison, I have lakes! Here I can swim for a mile in one direction and rarely encounter anyone else. Find the swimming hole nearest you!

In the Animal Kingdom

If you have a dog or cat and do not consider it a drain on your time, here’s a little something about Rover or Mittens that you may not have known. In recent years, as reported by U.S. News & World Report, scientists have found proof for what was only once suspected: Contact with animals has specific and measurable effects on both your body and mind.

The mere presence of animals can increase a sick person’s chances of survival, and has been shown to lower heart rate, calm disturbed children, and induce incommunicative people to initiate conversation!

The exact mechanisms that animals exert to affect your health and well-being are still largely mysterious. Scientists suspect that animal companionship is beneficial because, unlike human interaction (!), it is uncomplicated.

Animals are nonjudgmental, accepting and attentive; they don’t talk back, criticize, or give orders. Animals have a unique capacity to draw people out.

Even if you only have goldfish, sometimes simply staring at them in their silent world can help deaden your hectic pace.

Catching up with Today

1. Constantly read your list of priorities and goals.
2. Challenge and defeat your own ritual behavior.
3. Consider the outcome of not handling something.
4. Convincingly, but politely, say no.
5. Call rather than visit.

6. Clear your desk of all but the task at hand.
7. Clear your files of everything that can be recycled.
8. Cancel something you had already scheduled.
9. Choose from what you already have.
10. Choose to get a good night’s sleep every night.

When you consider all of the ways you add unnecessary pressures to your day, you begin to see many ways to catch up with today or, at least, with this week.

Lawfare, Coercion, and Intimidation at the U.S Department of Injustice

Th DOJ fraudulently claims this mission: “Uphold the rule of law, to keep our country safe, and to protect civil rights”



Lawfare is impacting society in horrendous ways, many of which ultimately impact your life and your experiences. What is lawfare? Derived from combining the words “law” and “warfare,” it is the employment of legal approaches to delegitimize, damage, or destroy an opposing party or to hinder their ability to employ their own legal rights.

While lawfare has been used among nations seeking to resolve military conflicts, hamper an opponent’s strategies and tactics, or accuse others of serious crimes, here I am only focusing on domestic issues.

The U.S. system of justice has become overtly contentious, straying from the original mission and objective of our legal system. Unfortunately, the U.S. Department of Justice adopted lawfare tactics en mass during the Obama Administration, under the sordid leadership of Attorney General Eric Holder.

Long Term Damage

Lawfare was employed against individuals whom the DOJ had targeted, to damage or disparage their character, waste their money and time, or triumph over them for public relations purposes. Today the DOJ persecutes, coerces, badgers, and prosecutes Americans, mainly conservatives, time after time.

The agency’s conviction rate is 93%, or 14 out of 15 cases. Yet, in countless instances, DOJ lawyers pursuing cases do not have sufficient evidence or even legal grounds. How do they prevail? Repeatedly, these government attorneys intimidate defendants to confess to “process” crimes, much like what the special prosecutors under Robert Mueller did with many of Donald Trump’s associates.

If no real crimes existed, DOJ attorneys, well-versed in lawfare, pushed for prosecution in one way or another, HUNDREDS of times. Conviction represents career bonus points for eager DOJ attorneys.

Garland: Corrupt Beyond Belief

Bill Barr, appointed by Donald Trump, was utterly corrupt – a swamp creature of the highest order. He sat on the Hunter Biden revelations. He ignored voluminous evidence of worldwide bribes taken by Joe Biden. He covered for Jeffrey Epstein’s clients, and likely lied about Epstein’s demise. He had insider knowledge of the numerous bogus plots against Trump and said and did nothing.

U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, now head of the DOJ, has raised lawfare to justice-destroying heights. The DOJ has become the chief agency of injustice. Under Garland, Catholics, parents concerned about the education and welfare of their children, peaceful protesters, and legions of others have had their rights violated.

We know that both the FBI and DOJ have sought to lay heavy crap on Rudy Giuliani, Matt Gaetz, Don Trump, Jr., Jared Kushner, many of Trump’s advisors, and so many others.

Injustice on Demand

Garland’s DOJ implements lawfare in virtually everything it does. The agency has no qualms about incarcerating people for indeterminate lengths, staging show trials, bleeding defendants financially dry, and threatening them with jail sentences unless they capitulate. These are perilous times, especially for anyone who is opposed to the Biden Administration or speaks up in ways that the DOJ does not approve.

It is not difficult with the vast databases to undertake intense snooping and other nefarious methods. In record time, the “Department of Injustice” can ruin a person’s reputation, even after a lifetime of accuracy in their work, in their claims, and in how they comport themselves.

The DOJ can destroy reputations in less than 24 hours, particularly if that person is vulnerable with relatives or children. They raid homes with guns drawn when a simple knock on the door would suffice. The Democrats of today, can get to anyone they want, and will shake their targets to the core.

The GOP Must Win in 2024 or We’re Doomed

Everything described above should have no place within the U.S. Department of Justice. Lawfare should have no place. Meanwhile, the DOJ fraudulently claims that its mission is to “Uphold the rule of law, to keep our country safe, and to protect civil rights.” In actuality, it fails miserably on all three counts.

Claiming independence and impartiality, the agency states, “We work each day to earn the public’s trust by following the facts and the law wherever they may lead, without prejudice or improper influence.” Yes, Hunter Biden will verify that. The DOJ claims, “Our employees value differences in people and in ideas and treat everyone with fairness, dignity, and compassion.” Not exactly.

The only tenable solution to vanquish the runaway DOJ and their insidious practice of lawfare, intimidation, and coercion is for a Republican to win the 2024 presidential election, replace Garland, and quickly reverse the serious damage that has been done to our nation.

If Democrats successfully re-cheat their way to victory, may God help us all.
