  • FINA's ruling for female athletes and new 'gender inclusion policy'

Where did this little girl hear this? Maybe she was just throwing out controversial statements for shock value to children on the mer...

As a Jeffersonian Republican and in the interest of protecting journalistic integrity, I'm obliged to expose the following issues that are largely ignored or overlooked by the propagandists in the state-run media. My findings may...
