Fighting since 2003, sports leader challenges Joe Biden’s pro-transgender policies coming this week

MADISON, Wis., Jan. 18, 2021 /Christian Newswire/ — “On his first day in office, Biden will reinstate the Obama-Biden guidance revoked by the Trump-Pence Administration, which will restore transgender students’ access to sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms in accordance with their gender identity. He will direct his Department of Education to vigorously enforce and investigate violations of transgender students’ civil rights.” (From Biden campaign website)

Joe Biden will force the DoED to switch sides in two key legal battles. The first is in Connecticut where the DoED stopped funding schools where transgender athletes were beating girls in sprinting.

The second battle is in Idaho where legislators outlawed transgender athletes. Currently, the Idaho law is in the federal court system.

Last year, anti-transgender athlete bills were brought up in seventeen states with only Idaho passing a law. Ultimately, Congress may be forced to change Title IX, the 1972 civil rights law that guarantees equal opportunities for women and girls in sports. Liberals want transgenders included in Title IX.

In 2003, 4 WINDS USA President Steve McConkey started fighting against the International Olympic Committee’s transgender policies. He was the only one who stood against this publicly.

From there, the transgender movement spread to state high schools, the NCAA, NFL, NBA, and MLB. McConkey has fought this LGBT agenda every step of the way.

“Joe Biden has been talking for months about being the transgender rights leader,” states McConkey. “Also, he tells people he is the science president, however, science says men athletes posing as women dominate women. This is a scientific issue, but most importantly, it shows the decline of morals in the United States. When people cannot tell the difference between a man and woman, we are in extreme moral decline.”

McConkey tried to sue the International Olympic Committee before the 2016 Olympics in Rio. He was concerned that intersex athletes (not transgender) would sweep the women’s 800 meters. That is exactly what happened as they were allowed to have high testosterone levels.

The Olympics are postponed until next summer. After the Olympics, the Olympic Committee plans to make it tougher for transgenders to compete by lowering testosterone levels down to 5 nanomoles instead of 10. They have already done so for intersex athletes.

Recently, the British Journal of Sports Medicine published a study reporting that transgender athletes were still 12% stronger than women, even after two years of hormone treatment and/or surgery.

Two state bills would eliminate transgender athletes, plus one athlete is suing USA Powerlifting

MADISON, Wisc., Jan. 13, 2021 /4 WINDS USA/ — There are three events taking place this week involving transgender athletes.

Transgender powerlifter JayCee Cooper is suing USA Powerlifting for being barred from competition. Cooper’s lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Minnesota state court by Gender Justice. They assert that banning Cooper and other trans athletes violates the Minnesota Human Rights Act.

The North Dakota state legislature introduced House Bill 1298 that would ban transgender athletes.

Montana legislators are preparing House Bills 112 and 113 that would ban transgender athletes and prevent minors from receiving gender transition treatment.

In 2003, 4 WINDS USA President Steve McConkey started fighting against the International Olympic Committee’s transgender policies. He was the only one who stood against this publicly.

From there, the transgender movement spread to state high schools, the NCAA, NFL, NBA, and MLB. McConkey has fought this LGBT agenda every step of the way.

“There is an assault on women’s athletics when transgenders are allowed to pose as women,” states McConkey. “Society is in trouble when people cannot see the difference between a male and female in athletics. Nearly 75% of Americans believe transgenders have an unfair adavantage over women. Our governing bodies need to stop the illegal dominance of transgender athletes.”

McConkey tried to sue the International Olympic Committee before the 2016 Olympics in Rio. He was concerned that intersex athletes (not transgender) would sweep the women’s 800 meters. That is exactly what happened as they were allowed to have high testosterone levels.

Christians censored, but athletes can protest at the Olympics

MADISON, Wisc., Dec. 15, 2020 /4 WINDS USA/ — The U.S. Olympic Committee won’t sanction Olympic athletes for protesting on the medals stand at the Tokyo Olympics next summer.

This reverses Rule 50 of the IOC Olympic Charter that prohibits protests. This rule led to the removal of U.S. medalists Tommie Smith and John Carlos from the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City after they raised their fists on the medals stand.

While honoring the successful 2016 Olympic team at the White House, President Obama and Vice President Biden honored protesters Smith and Carlos.

Steve McConkey, 4 WINDS USA President, stands up worldwide for Christian athletes. In 2003, he was the only person publicly standing against the International Olympic Committee’s pro-transgender policies.

In 2016, McConkey publicly denounced Obama and Biden for honoring the protesters. During the presentation, Obama raised his clenched fist in support of them.

“Christians are told they cannot evangelize during the Olympics,” states McConkey. “However, leftists promote their agenda to brainwash the world. Protests do nothing to fix the problems. They protest and do nothing until the next protest. Our only hope is that people turn to Christ and do what the Bible says in regards to family and being a good citizen.”

Supreme Court says transgenders can use all locker rooms and bathrooms

MADISON, Wisc., Dec. 8, 2020 /4 WINDS USA/ — On Monday, the Supreme Court upheld an Oregon policy that said public schools can allow transgenders to use all bathrooms and locker rooms.

They declined to hear the arguments of the parents who contested the policy based on their faith and their children’s right to privacy.

President Obama required public schools to let students use the bathrooms and locker rooms matching their gender identity, rather than the one on their birth certificate. President Trump reversed this policy in February 2018.

In 2003, 4 WINDS USA President Steve McConkey started fighting against the International Olympic Committee’s transgender policies. He was the only one who stood against this publicly.

From there, the transgender movement spread to state high schools, the NCAA, NFL, NBA, and MLB. McConkey has fought this LGBT agenda every step of the way.

“Young people throughout the United States are being forced to accept the leftist agenda of transgenderism,” states McConkey. “The transgender movement is one of the indicators that we are in the last stages of a free society if we do not have a true Christian revival. We are approaching the coming of the Lord.”

McConkey tried to sue the International Olympic Committee before the 2016 Olympics in Rio. He was concerned that intersex athletes (not transgender) would sweep the women’s 800 meters. That is exactly what happened as they were allowed to have high testosterone levels.

Human Rights Watch wants to do away with sex testing of female athletes

MADISON, Wisc., Dec. 6, 2020 /4 WINDS USA/ — New York City’s Human Rights Watch ($85.6 million annual budget) is demanding that track and field officials stop testing female athletes’ sex before the 2021 Olympics in Japan.

The 120 page Human Rights Watch report was based on interviews with 13 female athletes from African and Asian countries, plus doctors, lawyers, and professors. Included was 800 meters double-gold medalist Caster Semenya (South Africa) who lost a 2018 court case after testosterone levels were lowered for intersex athletes.

In 2003, 4 WINDS USA President Steve McConkey started fighting against the International Olympic Committee’s transgender policies. He was the only one who stood against this publicly.

From there, the transgender movement spread to state high schools, the NCAA, NFL, NBA, and MLB. McConkey has fought this LGBT agenda every step of the way.

“Human Rights Watch wants to counter science and ruin women’s sports by allowing male athletes to compete as females,” states McConkey. “Women’s rights organizations are hiding as they know that men posing as women have definite advantages. Instead, they are following the unscientific agenda of the liberal left. The majority (70-75%) of Americans know what is going on and believe transgenders should not compete as women.”

McConkey tried to sue the International Olympic Committee before the 2016 Olympics in Rio. He was concerned that intersex athletes (not transgender) would sweep the women’s 800 meters. That is exactly what happened as they were allowed to have high testosterone levels.

14 Republican state attorney generals file brief supporting transgender athlete ban in Idaho

MADISON, Wisc., Nov. 25, 2020 /4 WINDS USA/ — Fourteen Republican attorney generals from various states filed a brief supporting an Idaho law banning transgender athletes from competing on girl’s high school and college teams.

The brief was written by Nebraska Attorney General Douglas Peterson. It argues that states are allowed to draw distinctions based on sex. The brief asks the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to reverse Idaho U.S. District Judge David Nye’s August injunction that bars enforcement of House Bill 500.

The states of Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas and West Virginia signed the brief.

In 2003, 4 WINDS USA President Steve McConkey started fighting against the International Olympic Committee’s transgender policies. He was the only one who stood against this publicly.

From there, the transgender movement spread to state high schools, the NCAA, NFL, NBA, and MLB. McConkey has fought this LGBT agenda every step of the way.

“Congratulations to the attorney generals for doing what is right,” states McConkey. “We need laws to protecting sports from illogical leftists who do not follow science despite saying they do. Poll after poll says transgenders should not compete as women – common sense.”

McConkey tried to sue the International Olympic Committee before the 2016 Olympics in Rio. He was concerned that intersex athletes (not transgender) would sweep the women’s 800 meters. That is exactly what happened as they were allowed to have high testosterone levels.

USA Gymnastics opens doors to transgenders, even without hormone therapy

MADISON, Wisc., Nov. 20, 2020 /4 WINDS USA/ — USA Gymnastics says transgenders can compete without sex reassignment surgery, hormone treatment, or legal gender recognition.

According to USAG, “emotional and psychological” safety opened the door for their new policy.

In 2018, USAG filed for bankruptcy after Larry Nassar sexually abused dozens of national team members as the team physician. USAG covered up the abuse for years.

In 2003, 4 WINDS USA President Steve McConkey started fighting against the International Olympic Committee’s transgender policies. He was the only one who stood against this publicly.

From there, the transgender movement spread to state high schools, the NCAA, NFL, NBA, and MLB. McConkey has fought this LGBT agenda every step of the way.

“Another sport is guided by feelings instead of facts,” states McConkey. “USA Gymnastics opened the door to confusion instead of following scientific principles. Many liberals talk about following science, but do not when it comes to promoting outlandish causes. It is called delusion.”

McConkey tried to sue the International Olympic Committee before the 2016 Olympics in Rio. He was concerned that intersex athletes (not transgender) would sweep the women’s 800 meters. That is exactly what happened as they were allowed to have high testosterone levels.

Dept. of Education stops funding universities promoting transgender athletes

MADISON, Wisc., Oct. 19, 2020 /4 WINDS USA/ — The Department of Education has come to the conclusion that “gender identity” is not relevant to Title IX in sports.

President Nixon signed Title IX into law in 1972. It states, “No person in the United States shall, based on sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”

On September 18, Franklin Pierce University will have to stop their “Transgender Participation and Inclusion Policy,” which allows biological males to compete in sports as females.

The private university is supposed to publicly post this policy in a “prominent location” on its website by October 2.

In 2019, transgender CeCe Tefler from the university won the 400 meter hurdles at the NCAA Divison 2 Championships. Tefler’s time was a collegiate-best of 57.53.

In 2003, 4 WINDS USA President Steve McConkey started fighting against the International Olympic Committee’s transgender policies. He was the only one who stood against this publicly.

From there, the transgender movement spread to state high schools, the NCAA, NFL, NBA, and MLB. Steve has fought this LGBT agenda every step of the way.

“We appreciate the Department of Education’s stand against transgender athletes,” states McConkey. “We are approaching the November 3 election. Recently, House Democrats passed the Equality Act that promotes transgenders and transgender athletes. Joe Biden recently said young kids can become transgenders if they decide to. We need to pray, stand, and vote.”

McConkey tried to sue the International Olympic Committee before the 2016 Olympics in Rio. He was concerned that intersex athletes (not transgender) would sweep the 800 meters. That is exactly what happened as they were allowed to have high testosterone levels.

4 WINDS USA President Steve McConkey applauds GOP Senators for anti-transgender bill

MADISON, Wis., Sept. 25, 2020 /Christian Newswire/ — Some Republican senators introduced a bill making it a violation of federal civil rights law if schools allow male transgender athletes to compete as girls.

The Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act would stop biological males from competing as girls or lose federal funding.

Senator Kelly Loeffler of Georgia is the bill’s lead sponsor. Four other Senators co-sponsored the bill: Mike Lee of Utah, Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, James Lankford of Oklahoma, and Tom Cotton of Arkansas.

In 2003, 4 WINDS USA President Steve McConkey started fighting against the International Olympic Committee’s transgender policies. He was the only one who stood against this publicly.

From there, the transgender movement spread to state high schools, the NCAA, NFL, NBA, and MLB. Steve has fought this LGBT agenda every step of the way.

“We applaud the Senators for making common sense decisions,” states McConkey. “Only 28% of Americans favor transgender athletes competing as women. Society has shifted so far left that Title IX is being distorted to mean something never intended. We need to pray for our elected officials and that this wrong would be corrected.”

McConkey tried to sue the International Olympic Committee before the 2016 Olympics in Rio. He was concerned that intersex athletes (not transgender) would sweep the 800 meters. That is exactly what happened as they were allowed to have high testosterone levels.

The Olympics are postponed until next summer. After the Olympics, they plan to make it tougher for transgender athletes to compete by lowering testosterone levels down to 5 nanomoles instead of 10. They have already done so for intersex athletes.

#1 Clemson puts terrorist group Black Lives Matter stickers on helmets

MADISON, Wisc., Sep. 14, 2020 /4 WINDS USA/ — Number 1 Clemson beat Wake Forest on Saturday with a score of 37 to 13. During the game, Clemson and Wake Forest had Black Lives Matter stickers on their helmets. They also have stickers that say “Equality” and “Love”.

Black Lives Matter is a terrorist organization that helped commit millions of dollars in damage to various cities by rioting and looting. Over 19 people were killed and 14,000 were arrested.

Black Lives Matter was formed by radical Marxists. They are against nuclear families and support the transgender movement. Also, there are reports that many leaders practice the occult.

Steve McConkey, 4 WINDS USA President, stands up worldwide for Christian athletes. In 2003, he was the only person publicly standing against the International Olympic Committee’s pro-transgender policies.

McConkey publicly denounced President Obama in 2016 for honoring the two 1968 Olympic protesters (John Carlos and Tommie Smith) at the White House while honoring the Olympic team. During the presentation, Obama raised his clenched fist in support of the protesters.

“There is a lack of discernment in the United States as sports is being used to promote leftist causes,” states McConkey. “The real problems are not being addressed, namely the lack of fathers and abortion in the black community. Christ is the answer to the problems.

“There are a few bad policeman, but the vast majority are doing a great job. The destructive protests are not about solving problems, but an effort to shift the United States to the extreme left. It is time to put pro-police stickers on helmets.”

After approving social justice messages, will the NCAA allow Christian messages on uniforms?

MADISON, Wisc., Aug. 6, 2020 /Christian Newswire/ — 4 WINDS USA President Steve McConkey contacted NCAA officials in Indianapolis to ask them if they will allow Christian messages on uniforms now that they passed a rule allowing social justice messages. McConkey stands up worldwide for Christian athletes.

Athletes will now be able to wear patches for “commemorative and memorial purposes as well as to support social justice issues.”

The athletes can have messages on both the front and back of their uniforms. The front patch cannot exceed 2.25 square inches and must be displayed on the front or sleeve. Front patches must be identical for all players on any given team. A player can opt out of wearing the patches.

As for the messages on the back of uniforms, names or words can be individualized for each person. In other words, the athlete can put their own message on the back where their name is normally. The front and back messages have to be approved by the school and conference.

McConkey asked the NCAA if an athlete can put an individualized Christian message on the back where the athlete’s name normally is. The NCAA official was not sure, but said the school and conference had to approve the message.

Christian athletes should put messages on their uniforms that glorify Christ. The back of the uniform can be individualized by each athlete. This is an excellent time to stand up for Christ.

Challenges to the Christian messages will most likely follow as school and conference officials may object. If athletes have a problem, 4 WINDS USA will help athletes contact Alliance Defending Freedom to fight for their right to put their message on their uniform.

Ban Black Lives Matter from sports

MADISON, Wisc., July 27, 2020 /Christian Newswire/ — We have an epidemic in sports called Black Lives Matter (BLM). A very small percentage of policemen have created situations that need addressed. However, the extreme reaction through BLM is dangerous.

Professional sports teams promote BLM by allowing kneeling before and during the national anthem, putting slogans on gear, and painting BLM logos at sporting facilities.

This did not start in a vacuum. In 2016, Colin Kaepernick and a few others started kneeling during the national anthem.

While honoring the successful 2016 Olympic team at the White House, President Obama and Vice President Biden honored Olympic sprinters John Carlos and Tommie Smith. Both were removed from the 1968 Olympics after raising black gloved fists on the medal podium as the national anthem played.

Black Lives Matter was formed by radical Marxists. They are against nuclear families and support the transgender movement.

Steve McConkey, 4 WINDS USA President, stands up worldwide for Christian athletes. In 2003, he was the only person publicly standing against the International Olympic Committee’s pro-transgender policies.

In 2016, McConkey publicly denounced Obama and Biden for honoring the 1968 Olympic protesters at the White House. During that presentation, Obama raised his clenched fist in support of the protesters.

“For some time, sports are being used to promote extreme liberal causes,” states McConkey. “Sports have become the vehicle for ideologies that harm society. Black Lives Matter is a violent organization that people should avoid. They want to re-make society, not create viable solutions.

“Most of the protesters do not have a clue what they are doing. Only God can change hearts. Sports will be affected as fans quit watching professional events. Add the current Virus problems to the mix and professional teams will face severe hardships.”
