September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

Library System Hosting 'Over-the-Top' Story Hour With Men, Women 'Strutting Their Stuff' in Drag

A library system in Minnesota is raising concern as it recently announced that it will be hosting three “over-the-top” drag story hours in June and July, billing the event as being geared toward families and suitable for babies, toddlers, preschoolers and teens.

“Come meet some fabulous drag queens and kings at the library! They will read stories, sing songs, and strut their stuff for an over-the-top story hour. All ages welcome,” a press release from the Saint Paul Public Library system reads.

The events coincide with homosexual and transgender pride month, and is being held in conjunction with the organization Flip Phone, which features a number of risque photos on its social media pages. The story hours are stated to feature two drag performers each, which include women dressed as men, also known as “drag kings,” at some events.

“Drag pushes people to break boundaries and explore creativity,” remarked Flip Phone Founder Chad Kampe. “At a very young age, we are taught to embrace our differences. Drag not only provides an opportunity to embrace who we are, it allows for us to broadcast and share who we are with the world.”

The first event was held on Monday evening at the Rondo Community Library and featured drag performers Utica and Sasha Cassadine, who read stories, sang songs, and danced with the children in attendance. One of the stories read was “Julian Is a Mermaid,” a book about a boy who wants to dress up like a mermaid after seeing three women do so.

The children also gathered around one of the men dressed in drag for a group photo.

The story hour is additionally scheduled to be held on June 16 at the Riverview location and on July 11 at the George Latimer Central Library. The Saint Paul library system has further created a page on its website that includes recommended books, movies and online resources as a “primer to drag culture,” such as the movie “Kinky Boots,” “RuPaul’s Drag Race” and the book “Does This Book Make My Butt Look Big?”

It also features recommended homosexual and transgender themed books that the library finds suitable for children ages 0-6, such as “Daddy, Papa and Me,” “I Am Jazz,” “My Two Moms,” and “Worm Loves Worm.”

Some local residents and others have expressed concern about the story hour, writing messages of opposition on the system’s social media pages.

“I would sue your library if I ever walked in with my children and they seen such disgusting things. This is shameful. This is sick!” one commenter wrote.

“I want my tax dollars back,” another stated.

Flip Phone had stated that the library was being “mega-trolled,” but most remarks of opposition are no longer viewable. It is unclear as to whether or not they were deleted by library staff.

“This agenda is just coming on so strong,” one mother told the outlet Intellectual Takeout. “A very sad day has arrived when we are handing our children over with their innocence and their pure minds and filling them with such confusion.”

American statesman Daniel Webster once warned, “If the power of the gospel is not felt throughout the length and breadth of the land, anarchy and misrule, degradation and misery, corruption and darkness will reign without mitigation or end.”

Scripture Affirmed: 90 Percent Of Animals Formed Recently Alongside Humans, New Study Shows

A new genetic study showing that 90 percent of animals appeared on the Earth simultaneously and at the same time as humans affirms the biblical account of creation, says Ken Ham, founder and president of Answers in Genesis.

The study, published in the journal Human Evolution, examined the “DNA barcodes” from 100,000 animal species and showed that “nine out of 10 species on Earth today, including humans, came into being 100,000 to 200,000 years ago,” according to Phys.org.

The study’s conclusion goes against evolutionary theory.

“This conclusion is very surprising, and I fought against it as hard as I could,” researcher David Thaler of the University of Basel in Switzerland told AFP.

As Phys.org reported, the findings are “sure to jostle, if not overturn, more than one settled idea about how evolution unfolds.”

The research raised the possibility that a catastrophic event wiped out most of the life on Earth 100,000 to 200,000 years ago.

But Ham said the research affirms what Scripture says about life’s origins. Creationists believe the catastrophic event was the flood. 

“Evolution doesn’t expect the vast majority of our species to have arrived at the same time, nor does it expect species to have these clear genetic boundaries,” he said. “But this is what we’d expect in a biblical worldview -- indeed it’s what creationists have been saying all along, although their timeframe of 100,000–200,000 years is inflated, due to evolutionary assumptions.”

Nathaniel Jeanson, who hold a Ph.D. from Harvard and is a research biologist at Answers in Genesis, added that “there's a great danger to the evolutionary model in this study in ways they don't quite realize yet.”

“The study suggests many, many species formed contemporaneously with modern human origins,” Jeanson said. “We know from mitochondrial DNA clocks that modern humans formed within the last 6,000 years. Therefore, this study implies that many, many species formed within the last 6,000 years.”

Agenda 21: The Plan to Depopulate 95% of the World by 2030 is Already Underway

The United Nations program may be the greatest threat to humanity

Agenda 21 is a United Nations plan to depopulate the planet

Many citizens live blissfully unaware that the greatest threat to their freedom is a little-known United Nations program called Agenda 21.

The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Division for Sustainable development created it as a sustainability program.

The UNDESA is arguably an amalgamation of socialism, and severe environmentalism brushed with anti-American, anti-capitalist overtones.

Every single day, in conferences at all levels of federal government, agents of non-governmental organizations, planning groups, and federal agents surround elected representatives and insist that their policies have nothing to do with national agendas.

They routinely publish reports and rally versus anyone even discussing the name Agenda 21.

"NO, no, no," they insist.

    "Those individuals are insane tin-foil-hat-wearing conspiracy nuts.

    "Ours is simply a local scheme for the community."

Few people have even heard of Agenda 21

Many elected representatives are puzzled, with problems and policies unexpectedly appearing in front of them with simple, ready-made legislation.

And then the continuous pressure to pass it, and it is frequently passed without an understanding of its origins, its function, and notably an absence of understanding of its consequences.

What numerous lawmakers cannot realize is that much of this legislation has a direct relationship to a much bigger program.

In accordance with the United Nations site, Agenda 21 is a “comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations system, government, and major groups, in every area in which humans have impact on the environment.”
One world government

The United Nations looks for to co-opt, by means of specific federal governments, and eventually, a "one world federal government," independently held land under auspices of guaranteeing its "sustainability."

Even worse still, the UN's Agenda 21 has even set out prepare for "depopulation" or rather, "population control."

If it seems like something from Orwell's 1984, that is since Agenda 21's tenets are eerily in line with berserk alternative truth Orwell himself had actually envisioned while composing the pages of his famous book.

Consider this chapter drawn from Agenda 21 off the UN's site:

The general human settlement goal is to improve the social, financial and ecological quality of human settlements and the living and working environments of all individuals, in specific, the city and rural poor.

Such improvement must be based on technical cooperation activities, collaborations among the general public, personal and community sectors and participation in the decision-making procedure by neighborhood groups and unique interest groups such as women, indigenous individuals, the elderly and the handicapped.

These methods should form the core concepts of national settlement techniques.

In developing these techniques, countries will have to set priorities amongst the eight program areas in this chapter according to their national plans and goals, taking entirely into account their social and cultural capabilities.

Additionally, nations ought to make proper provision to monitor the impact of their techniques on marginalized and disenfranchised groups, with particular reference to women's needs.
7.5. The programme areas included in this section are:

( a) Providing sufficient shelter for all;

( b) Improving human settlement management;

( c) Promoting sustainable land-use preparation and management;

( d) Promoting the integrated arrangement of environmental facilities: water, sanitation, drain, and strong waste management;

( e) Promoting sustainable energy and transportation systems in human settlements;

( f) Promoting human settlement planning and management in disaster-prone areas;

( g) Promoting sustainable building industry activities;

(h) Promoting personnel development and capacity-building for human settlement advancement.

The worst part of it all is that every-day Americans are already experiencing its implementation, maybe without even recognizing it.

This just blows my mind to how stupid liberals are. This is about the special election in Georgia on Tuesday

 In March, Anjali Enjeti attended a panel discussion with Democrats vying to represent Georgia’s sixth congressional district in Congress. She had heard the most social media buzz about one contender: Jon Ossoff, a documentary filmmaker whose bona fides includes degrees from Georgetown and the London School of Economics and a few years as an aide to Georgia Rep. Hank Johnson. Oh, and he also had an endorsement from civil rights legend John Lewis and national fundraising pouring in via the Daily Kos and other liberal sources.

U.S. gov’t gives pro-LGBT researcher $1 million to study, encourage transgenderism in kids

The U.S. federal government has awarded a pro-transgender activist $1 million to study transgenderism in kids in a study critics say is already fundamentally biased.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) gave the University of Washington’s pro-LGBT Kristina Olsen the five-year grant.

“In 2013, [Olsen] organized and began leading a 20-year longitudinal research study of early childhood gender development,” the NSF announced in April. “The study currently follows more than 1,000 children aged 3-12 from 45 U.S. states. The project will enable researchers to track social and behavioral influences on health, and evaluate the importance of childhood identity and the support children receive to lifelong health and well-being.”

The taxpayer money will support Olsen running the TransYouth Project (TYP), a “large-scale, national longitudinal study of more than 300 socially-transitioned transgender children that started in 2013. These children were recruited when they were 3-12 years of age and we are hoping to follow them for 20 years.”

“The first red flag concerning TYP is the orientation of the lead researcher, Olson, who is firmly on the side of affirming the child’s mistaken gender identity,” Jane Robbins and Erin Tuttle wrote at The Federalist.

And, “through TYP, Olson is focusing only on a particular type of child with a particular type of family,” they explained. “Participant children had to impersonate the opposite sex in all facets of their everyday life, and their parents had to agree and play along with the impersonation. Participants were recruited from transgender clinics, conferences, and support groups, further ensuring that only families that already accept the concepts Olson and her colleagues embrace would be studied.”

Robbins and Tuttle continued:

    ...the results will be evaluated based primarily on self-reporting of parents. Probably with no training in assessing anxiety and depression, parents will report how well their children are doing in those areas. The likelihood that parents will admit that what they’re doing to their children is having an adverse effect is pretty small. Olson even admits that this reporting mechanism may reflect “a desire to have their children appear healthier than they are.” But not to worry: “we have no reasons to believe this was an issue.”

The Free Beacon recently broke the news that National Institutes of Health is spending almost $350,000 to study the contraceptive habits of lesbians. That study aims to help women “fully realize the social, economic, and health benefits” of not having children.

Netflix to launch LGBT cartoon about drag queen superheroes who ‘save the world’ from ‘evil’

Netflix has released a brief preview for a cross-dressing themed superhero cartoon. It will debut later this year on the popular streaming platform.

“During the day, they work in a department store and deal with their uptight bitchy boss,” reads the official synopsis for “Super Drags,” the upcoming show. “By night, they tighten up their corsets and transform into the baddest SUPER DRAGS in town, ready to combat shade and rescue the world's glitter from the evil villains. Get ready, because the SUPER DRAGS are going deeper than you think.”

The 38-second trailer (content advisory for suggestive imagery) offers few details, but depicts the stylized lead characters suiting up, with the camera focusing on their chests and behinds. The only dialogue is a decidedly-male “huh?” coming from a character in a green dress, blonde wig, and heavy eyeliner and lipstick.

The five-episode series is the brainchild of Anderson Mahanski, Fernando Mendonça, and Paulo Lescaut of Brazilian animation studio Combo Studios, the Brazilian website CosmoNerd reports.

“We are thrilled that our first Brazilian animation will present our audiences with the daring, scandalous and fabulous world of Super Drags!” Netflix director of original international content Chris Sanagustin said according to Animation Magazine. “Netflix is fortunate to invest in great animation talent from Brazil, bringing the vibrant trait of Combo and the acidic mood of our producers to the beautiful and the canvases from every corner.”

“Thanks to Netflix we can take the Brazilian animation and mainly the LGBTQ representativeness to the 190 countries that have access to the service,” the show’s executive producer Marcelo Pereira added.

In a similar yet more extreme vein, a cartoon called “Drag Tots,” about baby drag queens and featuring the voice of drag icon RuPaul, is in the works for RuPaul’s LGBT streaming service WOW Presents Plus.

There’s no word yet on an age rating or target audience for “Super Drags.” Netflix features a number of adult cartoons such as “Big Mouth,” which has come under fire for featuring graphic depictions of pubescent characters exploring their sexual curiosity.

But while “Big Mouth” and others carry a TV-MA rating, and Netflix’s parental controls allow parents to limit the content their kids can access by rating, the company also promotes vulgar sexual messages via “Bill Nye Saves the World,” which it suggests is acceptable for children as young as middle school via its TV-14 rating.

Regardless of such concerns, pro-LGBT advocates are embracing the cartoon.

“Our bodies are ready” for “Super Drags,” Pride.com’s Taylor Henderson writes. “I am SHAKING,” PopSugar’s Ryan Roschke declares. The trailer “does not give much away,” Nick Duffy of PinkNews says, “but we are hyped.”

The show “looks to combine everything we love in this world,” SyFy channel blogger Courtney Enlow writes. “This is truly a perfect gift to kick off Pride month.”

Polio Is Making A Comeback In Venezuela

The Venezuelan people have enough to contend with — desperate hunger, massive inflation, a dictator who refuses to leave power — without the spread of long-eradicated disease, but this weekend, the Pan-American Health Organization revealed that a Venezuelan child has been diagnosed with one of the only recorded cases of polio in decades.

The child, who lives in the "extremely impoverished" state of Delta Amacuro, Venezuela, was not vaccinated against the deadly disease and has likely received no medical care or treatment in his entire life.

The last case of polio in Venezuela was recorded in 1989.

Health officials were especially angry about the case because, it seems, Nicolas Maduro's socialist government waited more than a month to let authorities know they'd discovered a case of polio — more than enough time for the disease to spread among impoverished children, and more than enough time for travelers and refugees who came in contact with the disease to spread it beyond Venezuela's borders.

Maduro's government will not approve money for vaccines or basic medical care through their public health system, so only around 67% of Venezuelan children have been vaccinated against polio. Additionally, 90% of "necessary medications and vaccines" have disappeared from pharmacy shelves, the Telegraph reports.

“The government is not approving the money for the vaccines,” said Manuela Bolivar, one of Venezuela's opposition leaders. “This situation is unfortunate but we saw it coming, because we’ve been denouncing for years that there are not enough vaccines.”

And polio isn't even the only long-eradicated disease to surface in the socialist country: Venezuela has reported more than 1500 cases of the measles, several hundred cases of tuberculosis, and instances of diphtheria, yellow fever, typhoid, and malaria. The country accounts for the vast majority — 85% — of all reported measles cases in South America.

Polio is an extremely rare and deadly disease spread, typically, through water contaminated with fecal matter. One in one hundred who suffer from it will have permanent paralysis and there is no cure. In most of the developed world, polio hasn't been seen in decades, and the World Health Organization reports that there have been only ten cases globally in the last several years, most in very rural, very poor areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Tick paralysis: 5-year-old Kailyn Griffin paralyzed by feeding tick



Kailyn Griffin, 5, experienced temporary paralysis following a tick bite in Grenada, Miss., discovered on June 6. (WLBT)

As soon as Kailyn Griffin's feet hit the floor Wednesday morning, she collapsed in a heap.

The 5-year-old kept trying to stand but fell every time. She was also struggling to speak, said her mother, Jessica Griffin.

Her daughter had been fine when the family went out to a T-ball game the night before, NBC-affiliate WLBT in Jackson, Miss., reported. Maybe Kailyn was having a hard time waking up Wednesday morning, or perhaps her legs were asleep.

Then Griffin saw the tick.

She had gathered Kailyn's hair to put it in a ponytail when she spotted the insect, embedded in the girl's scalp, swelled with the girl's blood.

She pulled the tick out and placed it in a plastic bag, then rushed to the hospital with Kailyn, WTXL reported. Doctors told Griffin it was an uncommon condition called tick paralysis.

“After tons of bloodwork and a CT of the head UMMC has ruled it as tick paralysis! PLEASE for the love of god check your kids for ticks! It’s more common in children than it is adults!” Griffin, of Grenada, Miss., wrote in a Facebook post Wednesday that seemed a mixture of worry and relief. “Scary is a UNDERSTATEMENT!”

Griffin could not be immediately reached for comment. It was unclear where or when she thought her daughter had acquired the tick, or how long it had been on her body. Ticks are most active from April through September, The Washington Post has reported.

Tick paralysis is caused by female ticks on the verge of laying eggs. After the tick eats a blood meal and is engorged, it secretes a neurotoxin into the host, according to the American Lyme disease Foundation.

The symptoms can occur five to seven days after the tick starts feeding.

Paralysis begins in the legs, then spreads to the upper extremities. It can manifest as fatigue, numbness and an increasing inability to move, according to the foundation.

In the later stages, it is harder for the victim to move her face or tongue. If nothing is done, the toxin ultimately makes it impossible for a person to breathe, resulting in respiratory failure.

The paralysis is more common in animals, which are unable to check themselves for the ticks.

But human children also are susceptible because of their smaller body mass. Girls get tick paralysis more frequently because the ticks can easily hide in long hair, according to the foundation.

The CDC reported a cluster of cases of the extremely rare disease in 2006. One of the victims was a 6-year-old girl who had trouble walking a week after visiting her grandmother in the mountains of Larimer County. A nurse bathing her after she was admitted to the hospital found a tick along her hairline.

And last year, Amanda Lewis woke up and found that her 3-year-old daughter, Evelyn, couldn't stand no matter how hard she tried, according to the La Grande Observer.

Lewis, of La Grande, Ore., posted a video on Facebook, hoping family members or friends could help figure out what was causing the girl's sudden strange ailment. They couldn't, but the video was watched about 22 million times and shared more than 600,000 times.

At the hospital that day, physician John Page saw that a 3-year-old had been admitted with ataxia and suspected that it might be tick paralysis.

He scoured the girl's scalp and found the insect, which was embedded in the skin and could have been easily dismissed as a red bump.

Once it was removed, Evelyn was walking the next day.

In Mississippi last week, Kailyn Griffin had a similarly quick recovery.

Her mom's last picture of the incident showed the girl grasping two balloons in a hospital hallway.

“Look who is WALKING out of the hospital! Everything is completely back to normal!” Griffin wrote, including a raised hands emoji. “GOD IS GOOD!!”

Twitter CEO Attacked for Tweeting about Chick-fil-A

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey faced backlash over the weekend after he tweeted a screenshot of the savings he received from Chick Fil A on a mobile app. Dorsey simply posted “Boost @ChickFilA” with the screenshot.

Many responded to Dorsey in dismay, wondering how he could promote Chick-fil-A because of founder Dan Cathy’s views on LGBT issues. Journalist Soledad O’Brien quoted Dorsey’s tweet and said, “This is an interesting company to boost during Pride month, @jack.” Erica Baker, a senior engineer at Patheos, responded to Dorsey saying, “Please delete this or follow up with how much free advertising you’re going to give GLAAD.” Raw Story political writer Sarah Burris interjected, “mmm, hate chicken never tasted so homophobic.”

The backlash against Chick-fil-A dates back to the late Dan Cathy’s 2012 comments about faith and marriage. In explaining the company’s religious views, Cathy said there is no such thing as a “Christian company” because “Christ never died for a corporation. He died for you and me.” However, he went on to explain, "But as an organization we can operate on biblical principles. So that is what we claim to be. [We are] based on biblical principles, asking God and pleading with God to give us wisdom on decisions we make about people and the programs and partnerships we have. And He has blessed us."

What raised eyebrows and howls of protest were his declarations about his view of marriage. When asked about his support of the traditional view of marriage and family, he responded, “Guilty as charged.”

This led to calls for a boycott of the restaurant chain. This led to a counter-protest in support of Chick-fil-A in which many of the company’s restaurants ran out of food due to the flood of support from people appreciate their food and values.

Jack Dorsey saw O’Brien’s tweet and explained that he should have thought about the company’s politics when he posted the tweet. He told her, “You’re right. Completely forgot about their background.”
