Cop, how can you sleep at night after uncovering all this lunacy?  We truly have stepped through the "looking glass" into a fantasy world.  Some of this nonsense I've heard before, but the bit about not using the term "American" is a new one on me.  If they don't like the term, they should get off the continent, because "America" extends from Ellesmere Island to Tierra Del Fuego.

As the esteemed Congressman, James Traficant used to say when things got goofy in the House, "Beam me up!"
So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants:  we have done that which was our duty to do.  Luke 17:10

Amen my Brother...may the LORD "beam" us up soon!

I watch what is taking place in the world, and especially in the Church, and see that the Word of God is being fulfilled rapidly. Isaiah 29:13 & 14 "Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid."

Wisdom and understanding is truly perishing in the world.
My religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me....That is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave."

BIDEN: White People Are ‘The Reason We Have Institutional Racism’
[Excerpts]

Presidential hopeful Joe Biden claimed white people are “the reason we have institutional racism,” arguing that if it weren’t for Caucasians, racism wouldn’t exist.

During a press conference with African–American reporters, Biden declared that racism is “overwhelmingly a white man’s problem visited on people of color.” President Donald Trump has only made the problem worse, he added.

“White folks are the reason we have institutional racism. There has always been racism in America. White supremacists have always existed, they still exist,” he said, according to the Associated Press. “The only way you deal with it is you attack it, you expose it, you embarrass … You call them out. Most of all, you call them out to our children.”

Liberals: ‘Hey Guys’ Is An Offensive, Sexist Greeting
[Excerpts]

According to NowThis, a liberal media outlet, the phrase “Hey guys” is offensive and should “not be normalized as an all-encompassing phrase.”

In a video, NowThis News producer Foluké Tuakli claimed that greeting everyone as “guys” ignores the “cognitive impact on women, as well as gender non-conforming folks.”
Tuakli said it was a deceptively “simple” term since it could be used interchangeably to mean a group of males or “people” in general.

“At first glance, ‘guys’ seems inviting, friendly, maybe warm, even comedic at times,” Tuakli said. “But it, like many male default terms, should not be normalized as an all-encompassing phrase—innocent as it may seem.

In a piece for The Atlantic last year, one writer said ‘guys’ is a “symbol of exclusion—a word with an originally male meaning that is frequently used to refer to people who don’t consider themselves ‘guys.’”

Animal Activist Sues Ben & Jerry’s for False Ads Portraying ‘Happy Cows’
[Excerpts]

Ben & Jerry’s is facing a lawsuit accusing the ice cream maker and its parent company of false advertising by saying the milk and cream in its products comes from “happy cows.”

In a complaint filed Oct. 29 in federal court in Burlington, Vermont, where Ben & Jerry’s was founded, environmental advocate James Ehlers accuses the company and Unilever of deceiving consumers.

He says many of the farms that produce the milk and cream are factory-style, mass production dairy operations.

NC Teacher Accused of Segregating Students Based on Political Beliefs
[Excerpts]

North Carolina school officials are investigating a Spanish teacher who has been accused of segregating students based on their religious and political beliefs.

WNCN-TV reports that Johnston County Public Schools confirmed that South Johnston High School Spanish teacher Julia Lopp has been suspended with pay as the school and district investigate.

Lopp is accused of segregating students in her class based on their religious beliefs and whether or not they support abortion.

Taco Truck Owners Apologize for Serving ICE, Then Apologize for Apologizing
[Excerpts]

Owners of a Buffalo-based taco truck company found themselves in the social media outrage-apology cycle regarding their decision to serve Immigration and Customs Enforcement employees.

First they apologized. Then they apologized for apologizing.

Per a request, the owners of Lloyd Taco Truck served food on Oct. 23 outside a federal detention center in Batavia, New York last Wednesday.
ICE employees staff the federal detention center, so they were the taco truck’s primary customers, NBC reported.

In response, illegal-immigration advocates accused the truck’s owners of discrimination.

“While Lloyd’s prides itself on its support of immigrants, this event shows it can still do better,” said Jennifer Connor, executive director of Justice for Migrant Families of Western New York.

The owners apologized Thursday, saying they experienced a “lapse” in judgement.

“Lloyd has deep ties to the immigrant and refugee communities in Buffalo,” the owners said in a statement. “There is no excuse for what happened and we have already begun to update our internal procedures to ensure future truck stops and events align with our company’s values.”

Lloyd’s then offered to “make amends and learn” by giving its Oct. 23 lunch profits to Justice for Migrant Families of Western New York.

After Lloyd’s concession to the radical left, Twitter users—including a Republican state legislator—accused the company’s owners of opposing American law enforcement, NBC reported.

Pete Cimino, a co-owner of Lloyd’s, then apologized for apologizing.

Professor In Hot Water For Saying Only Women Have Abortions
[Excerpts]

In an Iowa State University classroom recently, students began discussing the touchy issues of abortion and birth control when a student spoke up and declared those topics to be “women’s issues.”

Yet one dissatisfied student took to the university’s Campus Climate reporting website to complain that the discussion, which took place in September, was offensive to the trans community.

According to the student, declaring abortion and birth control women-centric issues “erases trans men and people who are non-binary who get abortions and/or use birth control.”

The student then reported the professor to administration, complaining “there was no push back by the professor to get students to be more inclusive and instead repeated this erasure.”

...a student reported another professor for joking that students should be able to tell an individual’s sex just by looking at them. “He then made a face expressing uneasiness,” the student wrote.

In another complaint, a student last fall visited Thielen psychiatric services on campus, and while filling out the paperwork, noticed only women were asked when they had their last menstrual cycle.

“Women are not the only people who have menstrual cycles,” the student wrote. “Trans-men can have menstrual cycles, as can non-binary people, etc.”

 Ban Guns, Life Sentences—BUT Legalize Prostitution, Open Borders
[Excerpts]

Socialist Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., presented a radical resolution Thursday that calls on Congress to outlaw life sentences without parole, give so-called transgender people the right to choose their prison facility, ban assault weapons and legalize prostitution.
Pressley, a member of “The Squad,” named her resolution “The People’s Justice Guarantee,” Fox News reported.
Following similar calls from socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Pressley’s resolution would grant prisoners the right to vote. She would also legalize illegal immigration and mandate that prisoners earn the federal minimum wage.
The resolution said her ideas stem from America’s “moral obligation to meet its foundational promise of guaranteed justice for all.”
.

In a statement, Pressley argued that a person’s suffering should give them the right to determine how the criminal justice system operates.

“For far too long, those closest to the pain have not been closest to the power, resulting in a racist, xenophobic, rogue, and fundamentally flawed criminal legal system,” Pressley said in a press release.

“Our resolution calls for a bold transformation of the status quo—devoted to dismantling injustices so that the system is smaller, safer, less punitive, and more humane,” she added.

Her resolution would outlaw “private companies from profiting from the operation of prisons, jails, and immigration detention facilities, including food services, financial services, commissaries, and medical care.”

Pressley connects the so-called mass incarceration epidemic with the need to repeal the Hyde Amendment and ensure “safe and legal access to the full-range of reproductive health services.”

The resolution condemns all forms of “systemic environmental, social, and economic injustice.”

Classic Disney Movies Come with Trigger Warning on New Streaming Service

 Walt Disney Company‘s new streaming service, Disney+, has introduced a trigger-warning for “outdated cultural depictions” on its old films.

Classics including Dumbo (1941), The Aristocats (1970), The Jungle Book (1967) and Lady and the Tramp (1955) have the warning, Fox News reported.
The notice comes at the end of each movie’s description: “This program is presented as originally created. It may contain outdated cultural depictions.”

The warning reportedly centers around racial stereotypes.

For example, “Dumbo” portrays two crows, with one named Jim Crow, that talk in African–American voices. Cliff Edwards, the actor who played Jiminy Cricket in Disney’s Pinocchio, does the voice acting for the crows.

Likewise, “The Jungle Book” has monkeys who are “portrayed with negative, dated African and African–American characteristics,” Fox News reported.

Then there’s the “Lady and the Tramp” song “We Are Siamese,” which contains two cats singing with Asian accents to Oriental music.

Disney+ launched on Tuesday Nov. 12. The streaming service has already garnered 10 million subscriptions, and Disney’s stock has jumped 7 percent.
When Disney+ launched, it came with a live-action remake of “Lady and the Tramp” that does not have the cat scene.

Seeking to avoid criticism, Disney+ does not include the 1946 movie “Song of the South” that depicts African Americans in the post-war South, despite the film’s Oscar-winning song “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah.”

Calif. Dems Won’t Say Trump’s Name, Replace w/ Kiddie-Lit Reference

President Donald Trump’s name offends California Democrats so much that they did not speak his name at last weekend’s Fall Endorsing Convention in Long Beach.
Gov. Gavin Newsom and others instead referred to him as if he is a movie villain.

Instead, they called him “45,” “Him,” “The Other Guy,” “You Know Who,” “That Guy” and “He Who Must Not Be Named,” a reference to Harry Potter’s Lord Voldemort, an evil wizard, the California Globe reported.

California Democrats talked about other high-profile Republicans, including NeverTrump CNN commentator John Kasich, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, and even United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Some California Democrats at the convention said they do not recognize Trump as the legitimate president, while others want to show their “resistance against him,” the California Globe reported.

“If we [don’t] say his name, then he doesn’t have as much power,” said Dana Russo, a delegate at the conference. “He’s built his entire career on his name. It’s a brand. Not even acknowledging it while talking about him damages that.”

Other Democrats said Trump’s name triggers them.

“It feels good [not to say his name],” said Colt Thompson, another delegate. “Just saying his name can make some people wince. At my college many groups actually banned his name being said because it gave some students and professors mini-panic attacks.”

Thompson said referring to Trump without using his name is like a secret code that Democrats use to signal their wokeness.

“But it also shows how many are against him,” he said. “You automatically know who is against him if they don’t use his name.”

Samantha Encarnacion, a psychologist, claimed both political parties have used similar tactics to refer to the opposing party’s president.

“First things first, this is nothing new,” she began. “A lot of people have not been named by people opposing them before. During the Obama administration, a lot of people on the right did the same thing, or made names like ‘Hussein’ and ‘Obummer’ instead of saying his actual name. Many politicians have had this happen to them, as well as specifically infamous people.”

There is no evidence to support her claim that such a widespread denial occurred at the official party level.

However, during the 2012 Republican National Convention, Oscar-winning actor/director Clint Eastwood famously delivered a speech with an empty chair beside him that was intended symbolically to represent Obama’s inaction and in absentia leadership.

Sounds like the immature behavior of 10-year olds in the school yard.  As sad commentary on the state of civility in  the US.

They're trying to paint  him as the worst president in history, comparing him to some of the worst dictators in the world.  They've really become unhinged.

The man is not perfect, but no president ever was.  This is a golden opportunity for us to  underscore the truth of Dan. 2:21 (also goes right along with this quarter's lesson studies).
So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants:  we have done that which was our duty to do.  Luke 17:10

I have believed for sometime that we are seeing the fulfillment of prophecy all around us today. In Isaiah 29:14 we read: "Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, evena marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise menshall perish, and the understanding of their  prudent menshall be hid.", or as the NIV says: "Therefore once more I will astound these people with wonder upon wonder; the wisdom of the wise will perish,  the intelligence of the intelligent will vanish.”

Trans Man Can’t Fathom Why Men’s Rooms Lack Tampon Dispensers
[Excerpts]

When transgender model and activist Kenny Ethan Jones experienced his first period, he faced both physical and psychological pain.

Initially, Jones, who had not yet come out as trans at the time, felt like he was losing control and didn’t understand what was happening to his body.
However, one thing was clear: He didn’t feel like himself.

“I didn’t believe that having periods would be a part of my lived experience,” Jones told NBC News. “I felt isolated; everything about periods was tailored to girls, yet me, a boy, was experiencing this and nothing in the world documented that.”

“People are still reluctant to the idea that it’s not only women that experience periods”

He currently experiences a wide range of challenges with his monthly bleeding, especially when it comes to getting his hands on menstrual hygiene products.

“Having a period already causes me a lot of [gender] dysphoria, but this dysphoria becomes heightened when I have to shop for a product that is labeled as ‘women’s health’ and in most cases, is pretty and pink,” Jones explained.

Some transgender and gender-nonconforming people who menstruate, like Jones, say when the products are categorized as women’s products, they can feel alienated — and may even avoid purchasing them altogether.

“I’ve definitely seen a positive shift with the discussion around women experiencing periods, but the stigma towards trans men, nonbinary and intersex individuals having them is still alive and well,” said Jones, who gained attention in 2018 when he was the face of a U.K.-based menstruation company’s ad campaign. “People are still reluctant to the idea that it’s not only women that experience periods.”

Economic vulnerability
A box of 36 tampons, which could easily be used within one menstruation period, could cost as much as $12 — that’s significantly more than the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour.

Additionally, menstrual hygiene products sold in the U.S. are still subject to sales tax in 32 states.

Proctor & Gamble to ax female symbol from sanitary products packages in nod to trans users
[Excerpts]

Always announced it will remove the Venus symbol from its menstruation products packaging following calls by transgender advocates, who said its parent, Procter & Gamble, was alienating trans and gender-nonconforming customers by not acknowledging that they, too, can experience menstruation.

“Could someone from Always tell me why it is imperative to have the female symbol on their sanitary products?” Twitter user Melly Bloom, one of those advocates, tweeted over the summer. “There are non-binary and trans folks who still need to use your products too you know!”

The company announced it would be removing the female signs from its packaging starting in December and aims to have a new design distributed worldwide by February 2020.

“For over 35 years, Always has championed girls and women, and we will continue to do so. We’re also committed to diversity and inclusion and are on a continual journey to understand the needs of all of our consumers,” Proctor & Gamble’s media relations team told NBC News in an email Monday.

“We routinely assess our products, packaging and designs, taking into account consumer feedback, to ensure we are meeting the needs of everyone who uses our products. The change to our pad wrapper design is consistent with that practice.”

Child Rapist to Be Released from Prison Because He Is Changing Gender
[Excerpts]

A convicted child rapist is reportedly to be released from prison in Iowa because he is no longer deemed a threat since he began transgender hormone treatments and is considering gender reassignment surgery.

The Storm Lake Times reported in November that Joseph Matthew Smith, 23, a former Midwest Christian Services (MCS) student, convicted of as many as 15 sex crimes against victims whose ages ranged from 1 to 13 years, was sentenced to prison in December 2015.

On January 16, the Times reported a spokesman from the Iowa attorney general’s office said they are “no longer seeking” Smith’s commitment because “an offender’s hormone levels are an important part of substantiating an offender’s likelihood of recidivism.”

“We don’t believe we have evidence sufficient to prove Josie Smith has a significant chance of reoffending,” spokesman Lynn Hicks said.

According to the report:

Smith has received treatment for gender reassignment over the past two years at Newton Correctional Facility. She first expressed a desire to “get started on transgender classification” in October 2017 and started using female pronouns.

Smith has expressed a preference to identify as Josie, according to court documents.…

An Iowa Department of Corrections spokesman said Smith was transferred on Saturday to the Sioux City Residential Treatment Facility for transitional release. He did not say when Smith will be released.

Hicks minimized any concerns the public might have regarding Smith’s release.

“Josie Smith will be subject to strict sex-offender reporting required of those who commit the crimes she did,” Hicks said. “She’ll be subject to supervision for the rest of her life.”

The Times said a preliminary report by Dr. Jeffrey Davis, who is described as a state “expert,” states, “The likelihood of re-offending within five years of release exceeded 20% because victims were of both genders, and because Smith was under age 25 and never had a long-term relationship.”
