  • Britain’s First Multi-Generational Transgender Family Reveal 5-Year-Old “Transitioning”

    The 5-year-old stepson of a British woman who lives as a man, with the child’s mother, is now “transitioning” to a girl, the couple has revealed. They also complain that they’ve suffered “insults” at the hands of people online and their neighbors, and they’ve also been reported to social services. What, exactly, these insults are was not specified in an article covering the couple on Heart. They’re adamant, however, that they’re not responsible for the child’s gender confusion and that the “transition” is what’s best:

    They could have soared like eagles “Don’t fail to rescue those who are doomed to die. Don’t say, “I didn’t know it!” God can read your mind. He watches each of us and knows our thoughts. And God will pay us back for what we do.” (Proverbs 24:11-12—Contemporary English Version) Since 1973 when two women, prompted (some might say, used) by their activist radical women’s rights attorneys, challenged laws prohibiting abortions and won, more than 50 million unborn and nearly born babies have been killed. That is nearly 15% of the current population of the United States. Fifty million babies...
  • Vampire Science Believes “YOUNG BLOOD” Is the REAL Fountain of Youth

    The Organic Prepper ^ | January 2, 2019 | Daisy Luther
    A clinical trial called “Ambrosia” seeks to discover the long-sought Fountain of Youth – and some scientists believe they’ve found it in the blood of young people. Unlike most clinical trials, people actually paid to participate instead of the other way around. Patients over the age of 35 ponied up $8000 to take part in the experiment where they get transfusions of young blood, run by Dr. Jesse Karmazin. People are getting transfusions of “young blood” to slow aging. Unsurprisingly, the business “experiment” is taking place in Monterrey, California, right on the edge of Silicon Valley. . . . And...
  • The KKK Has Killed 3,500 People, Margaret Sanger’s Planned Parenthood Has Killed Millions

    In 1865, the Civil War ended and the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution officially abolished slavery. That same year, a group of Democrat ex-Confederate soldiers formed the Ku Klux Klan (KKK). They were domestic terrorists that sought to overthrow the Republican state governments in the South during the Reconstruction Era by using violence and intimidation against freed former slaves and their white supporters. They prevented African-Americans from voting, getting an education, competing for jobs, or owning property. A year later, the Civil Rights Act conferred citizenship and equal rights, guaranteed due process and equal protection under the law...
  • Expand Pharmacist Roles to Reduce ER Visits

    Canada Free Press ^ | 01/15/19 | Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh
    As more doctors retire, less students study medicine due to its difficult, long, expensive training, nurse practitioners’ and physician assistants’ roles expand, more doctors are brought from third world countries. Could pharmacists’ fill the void? As I have recently experienced during a recent ER visit in northern Virginia, many cases presenting themselves are cases of sniffles of illegal aliens and their children who use the ER as their primary physician because ER visits are free to them, paid for by the U.S. taxpayers. A seven-year study just released on January 10, 2019, by the University of Waterloo in Canada found...

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 13 Jan 2019 | John Semmens
    In an effort to bolster his credentials for a possible 2020 run for the Democratic presidential nomination, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he won't sign the state's budget until the legislature passes a law making it legal for abortions to be performed by any person for any reason and at any time—right up until moments before birth. The current state statute requires that abortions be performed by licensed physicians before the 24th week of pregnancy. Cuomo called any restrictions "completely unacceptable. The crushing burden of an unwanted child should never be forced on a woman. The toll on her...

    Feminist activists have only one goal this year: to make sure abortions in all forms stay legal. As the Supreme Court decides whether or not to hear a case that could end legislation requiring aborted fetuses to be buried as human beings, feminists are panicking. This could be the first abortion-related case to be heard by a conservative-leaning court, and the first abortion case to be heard by Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Creator of the Daily Show and pro-abortion activist Lizz Winstead tweeted on Jan. 11, “Today SCOTUS decides whether it will hear an Indiana case requiring mandatory cremation/ burial for...

    VIDEO I cooked garlic ribs aka St. Louis ribs smothered in garlic on January 9. I used the 3-2-1 method in which after initially smoking the ribs for 3 hours, I wrapped them in foil for another 2 hours, and finally slathered barbecue sauce mixed with butter on them for the final hour. A great low carb meal for weight loss.

    Janitor's view ^ | 01/05/19 | Reasonmclucus
    Alice's looking glass had an odd property. It not only reversed the appearance of objects, it reversed logic.. When Alice entered the world behind the mirror 'she discovered that if she tried to run she remained in place. If she wanted to go toward something she had to try to move away from it. The claim that abortion "empowers" women uses such reverse logic. The most powerful action a woman can take is to make a new human being. Abortion shuts down that powerful activity. Making babies allows women to have a huge impact on the world. . Two of...

    VIDEO If you are scratching your head over the title, the video will explain it. This was recorded at the Porto Alegre Brazilian Restaurant in Miami on December 23, 2018 where I interviewed several of my young guests. Besides the Birthday Boy, attending was his brother, Marine Lance Corporal Ken Gutierrez, home on leave from his duty station in Hawaii. He gave me a rather unexpected opinion about that state. Also interviewed was Genesis the Mermaid who also surprised me with her new love for spicy food since she used to prefer mild to bland food. Now she prefers her...

    A New York Times story describing the organization’s discrimination toward pregnant employees was dismissed by Planned Parenthood’s management. Newly appointed president Leana Wen explained that “visibly pregnant employees are ‘bad optics’ that work against our primary mission.” “Look, we are trying to sell abortion procedures to our customers,” Wen said. “This is hard enough to do without the contradictory message being conveyed by employees who have let their personal lives intrude into their obligation to the organization. We have the right to take measures designed to discourage employees from undermining our business model out of a misplaced desire to bring...

    After enduring a deluge from multiple hurricanes earlier this year, the Carolinas are about to be flooded with something else far more preferable – jobs. Pharma companies based in both North and South Carolina are hiring for hundreds of positions, according to reports. In Raleigh, N.C., RedHill Biopharma is expecting to hire some additional employees following a $25 million underwritten offer in August and a $20 million underwritten public offering earlier this month. Speaking to WRAL TechWire, RedHill Chief Executive Officer Dror Ben-Asher noted that the funding will be used to support the company’s commercial capabilities. With the anticipation of...

    VIDEO For the first time in years, I was able to fit into a size 38 pants today which I wore to the weigh-in. When I started my weight loss odyssey back on May 27 this year, I was barely able to fit into a size 46 pants. I lost weight this time but not as much as during the past two weigh-ins. I'm blaming Thanksgiving, specifically Thanksgiving pumpkin pie-cake which I sort of gorged on. However, there is now a very good chance that I will drop down to my 220 pound goal of 100 total pounds lost by...

However, I won't quite get there this time but the good news is that I AM NO LONGER FAT!!! A few days ago I noticed this new non-fat condition while walking by a full length mirror. A condition that until recently I doubted I would ever be able to obtain after years of trying and failing to lose weight. Although I won't hit the 100 pound loss by Friday, I am pretty sure it...

    VIDEO I am now exactly a week away from my December 21 weigh-in. I had hoped to drop to my goal of 100 pounds down from my May 27 weight of 320 pounds. However, as I noted in this video, Thanksgiving caused a weight loss slowdown for me plus the fact that I need to lose 26 pounds from my last weigh-in. My normal weight loss is just 20 to 23 pounds lost per 6 week period. Another reason why I would like to drop to 220 pounds by next Friday is that if I do so I have a...
