Laurel Hubbard: New Zealand weightlifter becomes first transgender athlete picked for Olympic Games


Laurel Hubbard will compete in the women's super-heavyweight division, aged 43 - the oldest weightlifter at the games.

New Zealand's Laurel Hubbard will become the first transgender athlete to compete at the Olympic Games after being selected for her country's weightlifting team.

The 43-year-old is among the five weightlifters confirmed on Monday in the Kiwis' team for Tokyo 2021.




She lifted 185kg in two lifts on the way to qualifying in the women's super-heavyweight division and will be the oldest weightlifter at the event.

Hubbard - who competed in men's events before transitioning in 2012 - will be ranked fourth in the competition in the 87kg-and-over category, which will start on 2 August.

The weightlifter won silver at the 2017 World Championships and gold in the 2019 Pacific Games in Samoa, having sustained a broken arm at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia - setting her career back.

Reacting to news of her selection for Tokyo, she said: "I am grateful and humbled by the kindness and support that has been given to...

Not Even Media is Safe from Far-Left Violence: Antifa Attacks Journalists Covering Conservative Conference

Yet, the Denver Post — under a write-up of Andy Ngô, natch, whom the newspaper called a “controversial conservative journalist” whose work consists of “‘unmask[ing]’ activists he believes are members of antifa, a loosely organized and sometimes violent left-wing group” — reported that “no protesters were spotted inside or outside Saturday.”

The Denver Post didn’t bother looking around about what happened on Friday, when antifa threatened journalists covering the conference — which included speakers like Ngô, former Sen. Rick Santorum, Rep. Lauren Boebert and pro-life activist Lila Rose, among others. Which is a shame, because there was plenty of video from the Washington Examiner’s Tiana Lowe, one of the reporters they harassed.

This was when things were a bit more peaceful — at least by the standards of antifa, that is.

Antifa members were willing to talk to Lowe and another Washington Examiner reporter — at first.

“They’re known Nazi sympathizers,” one antifa member named Leonne said. “They sit at the tables with people like Proud Boys.”

Then things got a bit problematic, according to Lowe’s account, saying that “tensions quickly rose when they identified our lanyards, which bore the summit logo.

“We noted, as our press passes proved, that we were covering the summit as journalists, not attending,” she wrote in the Saturday piece. “That made the situation worse, as evidently, antifa members, these noble defenders of democracy, regard the press with the same disdain as...

IT BEGINS: BIDEN REGIME THREATENS MISSOURI AFTER STATE PASSES LAW PROTECTING THE SECOND AMENDMENT


The war over the future of our country may actually begin right smack dab in the middle of it.

In Missouri.

Always known as a hard-tack place where good, down-to-earth folk live (and, generally, let live — with the exception of St. Louis and Kansas City), Missourians don’t really bother people too much.

But the courtesy goes both ways: Folks shouldn’t bother them, either.

And yet, the Biden regime wants to bother Missourians. And the rest of the country too — with new gun control laws.

We already see them coming.

In Missouri, though, GOP lawmakers and Gov. Mike Parsons are heading Biden’s gun controllers off at the pass.

They’ve passed a new law that tells the Biden regime where they can do if they believe they’re going to enforce new, unconstitutional gun control laws in the Show-Me State.

Trending Politics reports:

Once again, a Democratic regime is cherry-picking states to force into compliance with the U.S. Constitution while holding aloft the founding document's 'Supremacy Clause.'

Per Civics 101, the clause stems from Article VI, Paragraph 2, which 'establishes that the federal constitution, and federal law generally, take precedence over state laws, and even state constitutions,' Cornell Law School notes in its online 'splainer.

'It prohibits states from interfering with the federal government's exercise of its constitutional powers, and from assuming any functions that are exclusively entrusted to the federal government,' the 'splainer notes further.

This is relevant again because the Biden regime has its dander up over a new measure signed into law on Thursday by Missouri Republican Gov. Mike Parsons. Called the 'Second Amendment Preservation Act,' the measure prevents local police in the Show-Me State from assisting federal agents in enforcing federal firearms laws.

'The Second Amendment Preservation Act is about protecting law-abiding Missourians against government overreach and unconstitutional federal mandates,' Parsons wrote in a letter to the Justice Department.

'We will reject any attempt by the federal government to circumvent the fundamental right Missourians have to keep and bear arms to protect themselves and their property. Throughout my career, I have always stood for the Constitution and our Second Amendment rights, and that will not change today or any day,' he added.

This doesn’t make the regime happy, Fox News adds:

In a letter sent Wednesday night and obtained by The Associated Press, Justice officials said the U.S. Constitution's Supremacy Clause outweighs the measure that Parson signed into law Saturday. The new rules penalize local police departments if their officers enforce federal gun laws.

Boynton said the law threatens to disrupt the...
