Team USA Athlete Told To Keep ‘Mouth Shut’ About Competing Against Trans Athletes

Team USA World Masters track athlete Cynthia Monteleone was reportedly told to keep her “mouth shut” for her “safety” after she raised concerns about a fair playing field when competing against transgender athletes.

“Words can’t describe how I felt walking up to that starting line in Spain next to a biological male-bodied athlete,” Monteleone told Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) in an interview obtained by Fox News ahead of National Girls and Women in Sports Day.

“The track athlete faced her first encounter in competing against a biologically born male during the 2018 World Masters Athletics Championships in Málaga, Spain, when she ran against Yanelle Del Mar Zape, a transgender athlete from Colombia in a 400-meter race,” Fox News explained.

Monteleone asked officials on the field why a “male-bodied athlete” was competing in her meet.

“The European officials were actually very sympathetic, and they stopped the meet,” she said. According to Fox News, the track star “said the officials conferred with one another but then advised her that she needed to address her concerns with Team USA after the meet.”

Despite Zape’s biological advantages, Monteleone was able to beat Zape by a few tenths of a second, but immediately after the race she approached Team USA Track and Field to express her concerns.
“They told me: ‘For your own safety you should probably keep your mouth shut,’” she explained.

Monteleone went on to question the “psychological trauma” that female competitors suffer when being forced to compete against biological males who identify as females.  “I don’t believe in keeping quiet about something that is so grossly unfair,” Monteleone added.

As explained by Fox News, Monteleone “has another reason to be angry with the physical advantages biological males have over [female] athletes — her daughter shares her dream of competing on the track.”

Monteleone explained that in her daughter’s first high school track meet, she was forced to compete against a transgender athlete.

“She had to line up for her very first race, after training all year, along a biological male,” Monteleone said, describing how the transgender athlete had trained for only two weeks but “blew everybody away in the first 100 meters.”

“So she came in second,” Monteleone said. “And you know what’s at stake are things that are important: prize money, scholarships, awards.”

“She deserved to win. She put in the work. But she had no chance because of the biological advantage of this male-bodied athlete,” Monteleone added.

    It is a mental sickness which athletic organizations MUST organize into
    a league of its own. A trans-gender league. Otherwise it is completely unfair
    and biologically dishonest.

    Girls and women, no matter how talented, need to boycott all sport events. Leave the transgender athletes to compete against themselves. Common sense eludes the people supporting transgender participation against biological female athletics.

    Who didn’t think this would happen eventually? When you legitimatize and even encourage all this gender crap it’s only a natural progression.
    To steal a line from Kindergarten Cop, “Boys have a penis and girls have a vagina.” Once that changed alll the problems started, real and imagined.

    Just because you can alter physical features (through reconstructive surgery or by hormone treatments, to appear as though there has been a ‘sex change’ does not mean there has been.
    Unless you can change a Y gene into an X gene, the individual is still either a male (whose body has been altered by hormone treatment and/or plastic surgery) or a female.

    If TRANS want to compete then they should have their own races against other TRANS. That will be the only fair way. It’s not fair to women’s sports to have to compete with WANT-A-BE’s.

    Make a transgender event where transgender athletes can compete against other transgender athletes and not against biological males or females.

Biden Admin Announces Eased Restrictions On Cuba

Published

Joe Biden

On Monday, the Biden administration announced that it is easing restrictions on Cuba in order to help support the Cuban people.

“The Cuban people are confronting an unprecedented humanitarian crisis — and our policy will continue to focus on empowering the Cuban people to help them create a future free from repression and economic suffering,” the State Department said.

The Biden administration’s changes include reduced restrictions on travel, along with removing “the current limit on family remittances of $1,000 per quarter per sender-receiver pair and will authorize donative (i.e., non-family) remittances, which will support independent Cuban entrepreneurs.”

The move received backlash as many argued that reduced restrictions on Cuba will only benefit the Cuban dictatorship. According to Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, the decision marks another policy failure by President Biden.

“Biden’s plan to prop up the Cuban dictatorship represents yet another failure when it comes to standing for freedom in our hemisphere,” DeSantis wrote on Twitter.

“Money from ‘tourism’ will go into the pockets of the Cuban regime – and will help fortify the government against those seeking freedom in Cuba,” he added.

The news comes a week after DeSantis announced that November 7 will now be Victims of Communism Day in Florida.

“Today, I established November 7th as Victims of Communism Day to honor those who have suffered under communism and remind people of the destruction communism has caused worldwide, including a death toll exceeding 100 million,” DeSantis wrote on Twitter. “In Florida, we will tell the truth about communism.”

Report: Ukraine Sunk Russian Warship By Using US Intel

Published

Ukraine sunk the Russian warship Moskva last month using United States intelligence, according to a new report from NBC News.

“A guided missile cruiser carrying a crew of 510, the Moskva was the flagship of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet,” NBC News reported. “It sank on April 14 after being struck by two Ukrainian Neptune anti-ship missiles, U.S. officials said. Moscow said the vessel sank after a fire. The Moskva was the largest Russian warship sunk in combat since World War II. American officials said there were significant Russian casualties, but they don’t know how many.”

“The attack happened after Ukrainian forces asked the Americans about a ship sailing in the Black Sea south of Odesa, U.S. officials told NBC News,” the outlet added. “The U.S. identified it as the Moskva, officials said, and helped confirm its location, after which the Ukrainians targeted the ship.”

The news comes the day after a report from The New York Times revealed that the United States has provided Ukraine with intelligence on Russian military units that has enabled the country to kill multiple Russian generals.

“The targeting help is part of a classified effort by the Biden administration to provide real-time battlefield intelligence to Ukraine,” The New York Times reported. “That intelligence also includes anticipated Russian troop movements gleaned from recent American assessments of Moscow’s secret battle plan for the fighting in the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine, the officials said. Officials declined to specify how many generals had been killed as a result of U.S. assistance.”

“The United States has focused on providing the location and other details about the Russian military’s mobile headquarters, which relocate frequently,” the outlet added. “Ukrainian officials have combined that geographic information with their own intelligence — including intercepted communications that alert the Ukrainian military to the presence of senior Russian officers — to conduct artillery strikes and other attacks that have killed Russian officers.”
