NC governor sues Obama administration over bathroom law challenge

by  |  published on May 9, 2016

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory filed suit Monday against the Department of Justice in a bid to preserve the state’s controversial “bathroom” law, after the Obama administration said the policy violates the civil rights of transgender people.

The state was facing a Monday deadline set by the administration to respond to its demand that North Carolina either scrap the law or face legal action and risk losing federal funds.

McCrory refused, and instead filed suit.

“The Department’s position is a baseless and blatant overreach,” the suit, filed in U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of North Carolina, says. “This is an attempt to unilaterally rewrite long-established federal civil rights laws in a manner that is wholly inconsistent with the intent of Congress and disregards decades of statutory interpretation by the Courts.”

The state law requires transgender people to use bathrooms that correspond with the sex on their birth certificate. McCrory says the North Carolina law applies only to government offices, universities and road-side rest stops, not every bathroom in the state.

    One thing for sure in all this, no matter what bathroom is used, all the waste matter collects at the White-house.


    It is not even in the Constitution but the liberal head of the DOJ and Obama just keep spinning and those who know nothing will fall for it. Cannot wait for Jan. 2017 to get here. Enough is enough.

  • Transgenderism is nothing more than a reality-defying belief which denies biogenetic fact and is therefore a serious psychological delusional disorder, inspired by Satan. : “transgenderism is the mind telling the body to ignore its own DNA.”

    Why is dey all so crazy

    De song thrush ain’y de robin,
    And de catbird ain’t de jay.
    Why is dey all a throbbin

    and let your heart be gay.
    Be de song thrush or de robin,

      All body cells contain gender-specific genetics. One can change the outside, but the cells will always identify the person as male or female.

    North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory, is the correct. Hey BO, how would you like a, guy in the bathroom, with the little princesses? Of course, the Secret Service, would kill the pervert. This is fucking ridicules, PC run amok! Stupid mother fuckers!

    The federal government shouldn’t even be involved in these things. Stay as far away from THIS administration as you can. But I do agree obama and his regime should be sued every time they make a move.

    This distorting the sexes, because some people have mental issues or suffer reality distortions, should not force us to allow original sex guys into women’s bathrooms and original sex women into guys bathrooms.
    Instead of treating these deviations, we are allowing the logical system to be bastardized.
    Typical far left illogical thinking and solution. These guys are insane!
    This is like a the federal gov. deciding that sex offenders are nomal but instead of sending them to prison or getting them help, they just limit the age of the women they can attack. Why do we allow this idiot to constantly do stupid shit? LL is just a lap dog who does whatever he wants, so can’t blame her as she is just brain dead. Can’t wait until we have a real president and can kick some ass.
    There is no place in the universe where we should allow a corrupted group to infringe on the rights of the normal. If you are a woman, you are now going to have guys using your bathrooms? INSANE!
    These deviates need help.
    This is like gun control: take the guys aways from the good legal people and allow the illegal to have illegal guns. How about also providing psych serives for the mentally troubled people?
    The was a guy in China that killed 70 kinds in a school with a knife, guy in oklahoma city who killed hundreds with bomb. Insanity is a root cause as is access to illegal guns. So what does the wizard of Oz do, he allows more crazy people to come here illegally.
    That guy in the WH should be jailed as soon as possible.

      One reason the deviants are considered “normal” is because psychiatry was infiltrated by LBGT people who changed the manual to read that it was normal behavior not abnormal behavior. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders previously stated that LBGT was abnormal behavior.

    Federal law applies to Washington DC and territories, not the 50 states.
    As ‘public’ restrooms are a customer service, then it is up to the individual businesses how they wish to provide the service, outhouse, composting, single-holer, multi-holer with restrictions on who can use it.
    As far as the State, County, and City governments, that is up to the local entities whether they even with to provide toilets.
    The Federal Government can suck eggs.


      Obaaama doesn’t suck eggs…. just sayin’

    Lynch is pushing Obama’s Agenda…Suing N Carolina on the “Bathroom Bill”.
    The minority LGBT TRANSGENDERS AND GAYS… yet want men and women in the same restrooms.

    “Ringo Starr Cancels North Carolina Show Over ‘Bathroom Bill’. “I’m sorry to disappoint my fans in the area, but we need to take a stand against this hatred. Spread peace and love,” drummer says”
    Somebuggy, namely a former Beatle, is obviously clueless about what he’s trying to preach about. Unless his idea of love is pedophilia and forced sex for women.

      All those clowns who cancel their gigs in NC should be sued. If bakers can be sued for refusing to make specific cakes because it goes against their belief system, why are as$ holes allowed to cancel their services because it goes against THEIR beliefs. It’s all bs, it’s all part of Saul Alinsky’s 12 Rules for Radicals: RULE 12: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)” end quote.

    Cheers for Gov. Pat McCrory N.C. We got to stop this Hawaiian for snuffing around in the bathrooms of the United States. Kenya needs him we are civilized. He waste his time on nothing and the big things he either screws up or sends his yes men in and make America look stupid.

    • reggie

      He is no Hawaiian. His parents were not Hawaiian, his grandparents were not Hawaiian. Dey nothin but fukinhaoles. No aloha, no kama’aina spirit.

  • David Stewart

    DOJ, Odumbo, anyone who wants perverts in bathrooms with female children are morally bankrupt humanoids! Note: not humans!

  • d.dolcater

    If it applies only to gov’t. offices, rest stops, and universities, what the hell are you guys bitching about? Are you just complaining because you can, and it’s the “fashionable” thing to do? How would you react in a genuine crisis? This country is in the shitter.

    • oaking

      Which shitter? (8-)

      • d.dolcater

        Any convenient toilet. The government is already using the Constitution as toilet paper, so why not go whole hog?

          because the only hog that we are ready to roast is in the white house, oh excuse me, the rainbow house

    “McCrory says the North Carolina law applies only to government offices, universities and road-side rest stops, not every bathroom in the state.”
    Did this just go from a privacy issue to discrimination and profiling?
    And, what about the elite class of our rapidly becoming an “open” restroom society. I want to see some queer dressed like a woman use Obama’s restroom or Lynch’s, how about it?
    How about your daughters mooch-el, can big bubba, the white fairy, if he is dressed in a woman’s clothes, use the rest room with YOUR daughters??

    • Raymond Bayder

      I agree 100% see if big Bubba can squeeze the lemonade while his daughters are in the same restroom. Let’s see how ol assanine can handle that.

    • David Stewart

      The answer, unfortunately, might be “Yes”!

    • reggie

      The law, like most of them, are for us. Don’t you know that kings, queens, princesses,, are special? Do you really think that the privileged few have to worry about their precious ones being molested in such a prosaic place as a public toilet? Surely you jest.


      Obaaama is all for it…

  • gerald Hughes

    Most conservatives have worried about getting through the 8 months, until we are done with the inept lying outlaw in the white house, without civil war

    the possibilities look slimmer, by the day.
    Justice and education departments are the ones doing the most damage,. time to start collecting names and addresses out of those departments


      Time to throw out the do nothing lawmakers in Congress while we are waiting for Obama to leave.
      Boy is Obama going to hate it when Trump becomes President and undoes all his flawed laws and rules and EO’s!!!

  • Jr1776

    The worlds falling apart, and all we can talk about is bathrooms, so incredible and stupid.

    • d.dolcater

      At least when Bush was president there was no doubt which bathroom to use. To even have this as an issue is asinine.

    • reggie

      It diverts our attention from the real issues.


      The real issue is the LGBTQ & P/ Left wing liberal agendas to strip away the rights of Christians, destroy what is believed to be right/moral (making it wrong) and vice versa, and force their beliefs on everyone else. It’s a common tactic to get people away from thinking about real issues….. Remember the multitude of murder cases that were non-stop, one after another on the news or live TV while NAFTA (and other important issues) being ignored by the media? Same tactic applies today… along with the “lie, deny, sue and hope for the best”.

  • uhptony

    Ladies and girls just put a long knife in your purse and if a pervert comes into your bathroom arrange for him to squat to pee for the rest of his perverted life. Chop the damn thing off and flush it down the toilet.


      To be on the safe side, use on of the newer razor knives…. safety built into them so the user won’t cut themselves.

        Sorry, this shouldn’t be just about the ladies room. Men have less privacy in the men’s room. I don’t need a woman coming in while I’m peeing.

    Behind you all the way Govenor.

      …. and I am sure Obaama is too… pun intended.
