The Incredible Story Of How Kim Kardashian’s Ancestors Escaped The Armenian Genocide
Between 1915 and 1917, 1.5 million Armenians (most of them Christians) were slaughtered by the Turks. Armenians were systematically abducted, tortured and marched to their deaths just because of who they were and what they believed. At one point, 60,000 corpses were found in a single mass grave. It was one of the greatest genocides in history, but it didn’t end in 1917. Between 1920 and 1923, Turkey either deported or wiped out almost all of the Armenians that had survived the first wave of persecution. This genocide was one of the most horrifying examples of how evil humanity can be, and yet to this day the U.S. government continues to refuse to call it a “genocide”. Because of the sensitive nature of our relationship with the Turkish government, Barack Obama absolutely will not use the “g word” when speaking of what happened to the Armenians. And as I wrote about the other day, Obama also seems to care very little about the Christian genocide that is going on in parts of the Middle East controlled by ISIS today. But whether Obama ever recognizes the Armenian genocide or not, it is vitally important that the world remembers what happened to those precious people. One very prominent celebrity that is leading the call to remember the Armenian genocide is Kim Kardashian. In this article, I am going to share the story of how her ancestors were able to escape the genocide. I promise you, it is a story that you are not likely to ever forget. (Read More…)
Why Is JP Morgan Accumulating The Biggest Stockpile Of Physical Silver In History?
Why in the world has JP Morgan accumulated more than 55 million ounces of physical silver? Since early 2012, JP Morgan’s stockpile has grown from less than 5 million ounces of physical silver to more than 55 million ounces of physical silver. Clearly, someone over at JP Morgan is convinced that physical silver is a great investment. But in recent times, the price of silver has actually fallen quite a bit. As I write this, it is sitting at the ridiculously low price of $15.66 an ounce. So up to this point, JP Morgan’s investment in silver has definitely not paid off. But it will pay off in a big way if we will soon be entering a time of great financial turmoil. (Read More….)

According to Klein, this trip was the hardest trip he’s ever made. It forced him to ask an important question. “I thought: ‘Could this happen to us in America? Could we be forced with a decision?

The spread of ISIS is also impacting nominal Muslims who are helping refugees. Klein says, “A lot of people—Muslims—are saying, ‘If this is what Islam is, we don’t want to be Muslims anymore,’ and they’re opening up to the gospel.”

Baltimore Becomes War Zone As #BlackLivesMatter Protest Goes Ultra-Violent (VIDEO)
As Obama dined sumptuously with the Washington elites mere miles away racial violence engulfed the city
BALTIMORE, Maryland — Racial protests supposed to be peaceful quickly turned into violent riots on Saturday evening, closing down the city of Baltimore for some time—and creating a panic for thousands of people as just 50 miles away elites in Washington partied with President Barack Obama at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
They were protesting the death of Freddie Gray, who Agence France Press newswire wrote “died last Sunday from spinal injuries, a week after his arrest in the city’s impoverished west side.”
“In a press conference Friday, officials acknowledged Gray should have received medical help at the moment of his arrest, when he was seen by bystanders — and caught on video — howling in apparent pain,” AFP wrote, providing the background of the simmering tensions in the mid-Atlantic port town. “They also revealed that Gray, contrary to police department policy, was not buckled into his seat in the van, which made at least three unexplained stops on its way to the Western District police station. Gray died Sunday with 80 percent of his spine severed at the neck, lawyers for his family have said. His funeral is scheduled for Monday. Six officers have been suspended with pay as the police investigation inches closer to a May 1 deadline to submit findings to a Maryland state prosecutor, who could decide to press charges.”
GRAPHIC WARNING: This video contains foul language and violent scenes
All of a sudden, everything went haywire. What were peaceful marchers holding up signs turned into violent rioters. Innocent fans standing by were confronted by the rioters, who physically and verbally threateningly engaged many of them—and then the protesters got even more violent.
All of a sudden, beer bottles and cans, and other projectiles were lobbed by the protesters into the crowds of fans. To get those projectiles, the protesters stole them forcibly from the bartenders and vendors set up outside each of those three bars. One beer can whizzed by my brother’s face, missing him by about six inches, and more flew all over the crowded area.
The crowd of protesters then stopped a blue station wagon carrying a white family as they tried to drive past Pickles, Bullpen and Sliders along a narrow one-way stretch between the bars and the main road. As a horde of them smashed their open and closed fists on the hood of the car—while impeding them by standing in front of them—the driver backed up on the one way pass in a desperate attempt to get out of dodge. Then, stopped on the other side with nowhere to go, protesters ripped open the passenger door of the car and began reaching around inside the vehicle. As hundreds of people looked on, including several police officers who didn’t engage the violent protesters, the white woman in the front seat—middle-aged and a little heavyset with dark hair—was visibly terrified. The group of black men who ripped open the car door suddenly realized they were separated from the larger group of protesters and abandoned their quest to seemingly either carjack the station wagon or rob the people inside in front of hundreds, driving out of the one-way street back onto the main road and presumably out of dodge.
As projectiles continued flying everywhere from each part of the crowd—like a war-zone—another black man then charged into the crowd of Red Sox and Orioles fans standing outside Pickles Pub and tore the metal barricades apart throwing them into the now-crowded one-way pass where the assaulted station wagon was a moment ago. source

|Texans blame secret military takeover for Walmart closings, secret tunnelsPosted: 25 Apr 2015 08:00 PM PDT
News of the Army’s operation Jade Helm stirred up widespread fears and deep mistrust of the American government in a sizable bloc of the public. Thousands of tweets, dozens of online publications and plenty of Chron.com commenters sounded the alarm of an impending military takeover. Now the virtual world of alternative news has added a new twist to the tale: Walmart is in on it, and there are secret underground tunnels. Multiple websites drew links between the suspiciously swift and simultaneous closure of a half dozen Walmarts nationwide and the military training drill that will have some of America’s most elite units–Green Berets and Navy SEALS among them–trying to blend in to the civilian population in Texas and the Southwestern states. It may seem crazy, but the fearful aren’t a totally marginal crowd. Online outcry over the original plans to hold the so-called realistic military training in American cities drew an official response from the U.S. Army Special Operations Command. Stars and Stripes, the news publication of the U.S. military, ran an article titled “Army Special Operations Command pushes back against alarmist claims about upcoming exercise,” The Washington Post wrote “Why Operation Jade Helm 15 is freaking out the Internet—and why it shouldn’t be” and VICE News reported “conspiracy theorists think an army training exercise will bring martial law to the US this summer.” MORE

|37 tons of dead fish removed from Rio Olympic rowing venuePosted: 25 Apr 2015 07:54 PM PDT
RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Fish continued to die by the ton Thursday in a Rio de Janeiro lake that’s slated to host Olympic rowing events, while city authorities and biologists argued about the cause of the die-off. Rio’s Comlurb waste management company said that as of Wednesday night, it had collected more than 37 tons of dead fish from the Rodrigo de Freitas lake since the die-off started late last week. Garbage collectors were out in force again on Thursday to rake dead fish off the water’s surface, and Comlurb said the effort would continue till the die-off subsides. The decomposing fish, a small silvery species called twaite shad, were trucked to the city’s main dump. But an overwhelming stench still enveloped the lake, sparking complaints by angry neighbors and passers-by Such die-offs are common in Rio, where rivers, lakes and even the ocean are blighted by raw sewage and garbage. In February, twaite shad died en masse in the blighted waters of the Guanabara Bay, where the Olympic sailing events are to be held. Rio’s environmental secretariat insisted Thursday that the latest incident is the result of a sudden change in water temperature. MORE

|Bakers face $135,000 fine for refusing to make cake for gay weddingPosted: 25 Apr 2015 07:43 PM PDT
The owners of an Oregon bakery learned Friday that there is a severe price to pay for following their Christian faith. A judge for the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) recommended a lesbian couple should receive $135,000 in damages for their emotional suffering after Sweet Cakes by Melissa refused to make them a wedding cake. As a result – Aaron and Melissa Klein could lose everything they own — including their home. The Oregonian reports the recommended penalty is not final and could be raised or lowered by State Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian. The controversy started in 2013 when Aaron Klein declined to provide a cake for a lesbian wedding. Later that year, the women filed a complaint against Klein and his wife, Melissa. “The facts of this case clearly demonstrate that the Kleins unlawfully discriminated against the Complainants,” read a statement by the BOLI to the Oregonian. “Under Oregon law, businesses cannot discriminate or refuse service based on sexual orientation, just as they cannot turn customers away because of race, sex, disability, age or religion. Our agency is committed to fair and thorough enforcement of Oregon civil rights laws, including the Equality Act of 2007.” MORE

|New avian flu viruses send U.S. scientists scramblingPosted: 25 Apr 2015 07:34 PM PDT
Three highly pathogenic avian flu viruses that have infected poultry and wild birds in the U.S. Midwest appear unlikely to present a significant risk to humans. But the presence of the viruses in North America has scientists scrambling to understand their potential long-term threat. One of the viruses, H5N2, has already led to the slaughter of millions of turkeys and chickens, as commercial farms try to control the spread of the virus. No humans have yet become infected, but scientists say it is possible that someone in direct contact with sick birds might catch the virus, though it is extremely unlikely that an infected human could pass the disease on to another human. “Most of the time, these viruses don’t have human disease potential, but obviously you need to be very careful,” said Dr. Stephen Morse, an expert in emerging infections at Columbia University. “Nowadays, you can’t say anything about flu with certainty ” MORE

|Los Angeles Airport Security Boosted Amid Possible ISIS ThreatPosted: 25 Apr 2015 07:28 PM PDT
BREAKING NEWS – Security is being stepped up in Los Angeles, its area airports and other parts of Southern California amid new ISIS-related threats calling for attacks on uniformed personnel, several U.S. officials told NBC News on Friday. ISIS, which controls swathes of Syria and Iraq, has long called on its sympathizers to attack Western interests around the world. Los Angeles had already started using two-man patrols as a precaution. Upgraded measures were extended to Los Angeles International Airport this week, officials said. Investigators said there was no specific plot but concerns increased as result of intelligence from overseas as well as ongoing monitoring of suspected radicals inside the United States. FBI Director Jim Comey has said investigations into suspected ISIS sympathizers are underway in all 50 states. Fears revolve around threats to uniformed personnel or locations that lone actors may want to target, the sources said, speaking on a condition of anonymity. MORE

|Sentencing of Christians explodes 10,000% in ChinaPosted: 25 Apr 2015 07:16 PM PDT
China’s sentencing of Christians exploded more than 10,000 percent from 2013 to 2014, according to a new report from China Aid Association, an organization that exposes religious freedom and human rights abuses. The group’s annual report notes that it tracks six categories of religious persecution, and since it obtains information directly from Christians inside China, most of its information concerns the Christian house church movement. The “Year of ‘Persecution and Endurance’” report said persecution rose, sometimes dramatically, in all six categories studied. For example, the number of citizens sentenced for their beliefs rose from 12 in 2013 to 1,274 in 2014, up 10,516.67 percent. The organization collected information on 572 cases of religious persecution, an increase of 300 percent. “Of the 17,884 people who were persecuted for their religion, more than 1,592 were church leaders, which represents a 140.89 percent increase over the previous year. The 2,994 people who were detained constituted an increase of 103.67 percent over the previous year. The CPC sentenced 1,274 people, a 10,516.67 percent jump over 2013.” MORE

|Chile volcano ash cloud reaches BrazilPosted: 25 Apr 2015 07:05 PM PDT
Ash from the Chilean volcano Calbuco, which erupted without warning this week, reached as far as southern Brazil on Saturday and prompted some airlines to cancel flights to the capitals of Chile, Argentina and Uruguay. Calbuco, considered one of the most dangerous along Chile’s chain of around 2,000 volcanoes, erupted twice in 24 hours on Wednesday and Thursday, sending up a spectacular 17-km-high (11-mile) cloud and coating nearby towns in a thick layer of gray ash. Authorities have set up a 20-km (12-mile) cordon around Calbuco, in the scenic Los Lagos region, around 1,000 km (620 miles) south of the capital Santiago, evacuating more than 6,500 people in the area. “The dangerous nature of volcanic activity like this, plus the volcano’s current instability that could lead to more intense activity in the short term, indicates we should maintain the perimeter,” Chile’s national office of emergency said in its latest report.

Climbers on Mount Everest ran for their lives on Saturday when a massive 7.9-magnitude earthquake struck Nepal and set off at least one avalanche. At least eight people died and more than two dozen were injured in the avalanche on the world’s highest mountain, according to The Associated Press. Jelle Veyt was just getting back to base camp when suddenly the earth “shook for a couple of seconds — badly,” the Belgian climber told NBC News. A sherpa just a few feet ahead turned and pointed behind him, Veyt recalled, saying he then turned around himself and saw a “huge cloud of snow” heading his way. “I started running for my life….trying to be in a tent before it hit me,” he said, telling NBC News he wasn’t thinking about “much” other than running “as fast as I could to the tents” which were only about 200 feet away. Before he could reach the tents Veyt said he felt a “huge blow.” “It felt like a wind in the back but more powerful,” he said. Then, he said, he was “just surrounded by snow then. I couldn’t see my own hands.” While Veyt said he first tried hiding behind a rock, he “felt like I couldn’t breathe” so tried to make his way to the tent despite the “very low visibility.” MORE

SANDPOINT, Idaho – The Inland Northwest was rocked by two earthquakes on Thursday night, both which had epicenters in North Idaho. “I heard a sound and then felt it a little bit,” said Allura Livingston, who was performing in a play in Sandpoint when the first one hit. “I thought like a lightbulb blew or something until someone was like, ‘Oh my gosh that was just an earthquake.’” According to United States Geological Survey, a 4.1 magnitude earthquake hit just southeast of Sandpoint near Lake Pend Oreille at 7:32 p.m. Their website shows that more than 350 people from 51 area codes reported feeling shaking.

|Town centre brought to a standstill after 15-foot sinkhole opens up in street – almost swallowing up carsPosted: 25 Apr 2015 05:33 AM PDT
A busy town centre was brought to a standstill this afternoon after a mysterious 15-foot sinkhole opened up in the road without warning – almost swallowing a number of cars in the process. Motorists had to swerve out of the way of the giant hole after it appeared on the residential Earl Street in Northampton at around 2pm, just hours after part of a London pavement collapsed, swallowing a pedestrian. Shocking pictures show the gaping chasm – which was around eight foot (2.4 metres) wide – with a section of surrounding road also looking on the verge of collapse. Police quickly closed off Earl Street, causing traffic chaos and leaving locals without water following damage to a water main. A barmaid from the Charles Bradlaugh pub, opposite the hole, who did not wish to be named, said: ‘We saw it from inside the pub. ‘It was weird. It just collapsed but it gave way really slowly. It was gradual. ‘I am not at all sure why it happened. It was really strange.’ Eyewitness Matthew Green, 24, was in the pub when he heard a loud bang. He said: ‘I was just having a drink with my mate when there was this loud crashing noise. ‘I thought there had been an accident but when I went outside, I saw the road had collapsed. ‘The hole is massive. It must nearly cover half of the width of the whole road. ‘Police were here pretty quick but cars had to swerve out of the way until we went out and stopped them. MORE
|India rushes aid to the east after storm kills 48, displaces thousandsPosted: 25 Apr 2015 05:28 AM PDT
The Indian authorities were rushing food rations, clothes and cooking utensils to villagers in the east of the country on Thursday after a storm killed at least 48 people and left thousands more homeless, government officials said. With wind speeds of up to 70 km per hour (43 mph) and heavy rains, the storm struck Bihar state late on Tuesday, uprooting trees and electricity poles, ripping through farmland and destroying over 25,000 mud-and-thatch homes. State officials said 12 of Bihar’s 38 districts had been affected, including Purnia, Madhepura and Saharsa. “Now we are rushing relief, food items and utensils to the affected families,” Anirudh Kumar, a state disaster management official, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation. As well as ripping apart homes and destroying possessions, the storm also flattened banana plantations and maize and wheat fields, causing many villagers to lose their livelihoods, he said. Officials said they were still assessing the scale of the devastation, a process hindered by snapped telecommunication lines and villages cut off by uprooted trees blocking roads. “The damage is huge although we cannot provide the exact figure because we are still assessing the extent of damage,” said Sudhir Kumar, a senior official in Purnia.

|The ash cloud from Chile’s volcanic eruption blankets much of the continentPosted: 25 Apr 2015 05:20 AM PDT
When Volcano Calbuco erupted in Chile on Wednesday for the first time in five decades, everyone within a 12 mile radius was evacuated immediately. The ash cloud from the explosion, however, reached 9 miles into the sky and has already covered much of the continent. Flights from Argentina have been canceled as experts say the ash is heading over the Andes mountains and could reach as far as the Buenos Aires province — 1500 km to the east — by next week. The volcano itself is still puffing out ash and smoke, Reuters reported. A 2011 volcanic eruption in Chile sent ash so high up into the atmosphere that flights flying out of Australia were canceled as a safety precaution. The small village of Ensenada, Chile and some towns in Argentina have been blanketed with a thick layer of ash and soot capable of causing respiratory infections and contaminating water, the Guardian reported. The weight of the ash has caused roofs to cave in. While most of Ensenada has been evacuated, about 30 people have remained behind, not wanting to leave their homes or their animals. “We woke up today with a blanket of fog and it hasn’t cleared,” a resident of Puerto Varas, Chile told the Guardian. “We have a layer of smoke above us.” Officials have warned residents of the affected towns that a third “and even more aggressive” explosion is likely, “We are praying that the volcanic activity will be as short as possible,” said Villa La Angostura, Argentina mayor Roberto Cacault.

|Military holds ‘Dirty Bomb’ drills in MI CityPosted: 25 Apr 2015 05:11 AM PDT
A fake rental truck with a fake dirty bomb inside triggered a practice military response Friday in Battle Creek. Army National Guard members converged on a parking lot outside ABC Warehouse at 5700 Beckley Road for training and an evaluation of their response to a critical incident. A similar exercise was held earlier this week at C.O. Brown Stadium and and more will be next week again at the stadium and at the former W.K. Kellogg Middle School. About 160 members of the 460th Chemical Company of the Army National Guard based at Fort Custer Training Center in Augusta participated Friday as well as civilian volunteers who played victims of the incident. The parking lot was filled with military vehicles and decontamination tents as members of the unit dealt with people posing as victims and evaluated the threat posed by a chemical weapon. The military units are trained to respond to chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear incidents, according to the 460th’s executive officer, First Lt. Travis Williams of Midland. The exercises this week and next are to determine whether the units are prepared to respond quickly to an incident. He said the operation was set up in 21/2 hours. It was designed to evaluate the incident and begin treating and decontaminating about 40 ambulatory patients and 20 non-ambulatory patients per hour. MORE

|Catastrophic 7.9 Earthquake Strikes Nepal, 688 Plus Deaths, Worst Quake in 80 YearsPosted: 25 Apr 2015 05:01 AM PDT
BREAKING NEWS – A powerful earthquake struck Nepal Saturday, leaving at least 688 people dead, as the violently shaking earth collapsed houses, leveled centuries-old temples and triggered avalanches in the Himalayas. It is the worst temblor to hit the nation in more than 80 years. The quake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.8 struck the country before noon and was severely felt in the capital as well as the densely-populated Kathmandu Valley. A magnitude-6.6 aftershock hit about an hour later, and smaller tremors continued to ripple through the region for hours. The Home Ministry initially said in a statement that 71 people were killed in Nepal, but did not give any more details. One Chinese citizen was killed on the border, two Bangladesh and six in Tibet in the quake. Dozens of others were being brought to the main hospital in Kathmandu. One laborer, Pashpa Das, ran from the house when the first quake struck but could not escape because a wall collapsed, injuring his arm. “It was very scary. The earth was moving … I am waiting for treatment but the (hospital) staff is overwhelmed,” he said, gingerly holding his right arm with his left hand. As he spoke dozens of more people showed up with injuries, mostly from falling bricks. FULL REPORT

|Why Is JP Morgan Accumulating The Biggest Stockpile Of Physical Silver In History?Posted: 24 Apr 2015 09:21 PM PDT
Why in the world has JP Morgan accumulated more than 55 million ounces of physical silver? Since early 2012, JP Morgan’s stockpile has grown from less than 5 million ounces of physical silver to more than 55 million ounces of physical silver. Clearly, someone over at JP Morgan is convinced that physical silver is a great investment. But in recent times, the price of silver has actually fallen quite a bit. As I write this, it is sitting at the ridiculously low price of $15.66 an ounce. So up to this point, JP Morgan’s investment in silver has definitely not paid off. But it will pay off in a big way if we will soon be entering a time of great financial turmoil. During a time of crisis, investors tend to flood into physical gold and silver. And as I mentioned just recently, JPMorgan Chase chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon recently stated that “there will be another crisis” in a letter to shareholders. Some things never change — there will be another crisis, and its impact will be felt by the financial market. The trigger to the next crisis will not be the same as the trigger to the last one – but there will be another crisis. Triggering events could be geopolitical (the 1973 Middle East crisis), a recession where the Fed rapidly increases interest rates (the 1980-1982 recession), a commodities price collapse (oil in the late 1980s), the commercial real estate crisis (in the early 1990s), the Asian crisis (in 1997), so-called “bubbles” (the 2000 Internet bubble and the 2008 mortgage/housing bubble), etc. While the past crises had different roots (you could spend a lot of time arguing the degree to which geopolitical, economic or purely financial factors caused each crisis), they generally had a strong effect across the financial markets.

Hillary Clinton Says Christianity Must Change To Accommodate Abortion-On-Demand (VIDEO)
“Deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed to provide reproductive health care for all women”
“Thou shalt not kill.” Exodus 20:13 (KJV)
That Hillary Clinton is a lying, duplicitous, cold-as-ice political game player has long been established beyond discussion. She will say anything, do anything, and be anything she thinks you want her to be in order to win votes and fill the coffers of the Clinton Foundation.
But she also is an abortion-on-demand advocate who, if elected to president, will raise the number of babies killed in this country to never before seen levels of slaughter. About Abortion vs. Christianity, Clinton says that things must change. Drastically.
She told attendees at the sixth annual Women in The World Summit that “deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed” for the sake of giving women access to “reproductive health care and safe childbirth.” “Far too many women are denied access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth, and laws don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper,” Clinton said.
“Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will,” she explained. “And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed. As I have said and as I believe, the advancement of the full participation of women and girls in every aspect of their societies is the great unfinished business of the 21st century and not just for women but for everyone — and not just in far away countries but right here in the United States.”
Whenever a woman talks about “reproductive rights” it is always about having access to abortion-on-demand. Make no mistake about it, she is not any type of Christian found in the bible. She loves to throw the label around, but she is as liberal and as apostate as they come.
When Hillary said that “religious beliefs and structural biases have to change”, that is nothing more than politician-speak to say that Biblical Christianity must step aside to allow for the killing of the unborn on demand. In any trimester, right up to the moment of birth. And why stop there?
No, if Hillary gets elected in 2016, you better prepare for the blood of the unborn to run in the streets with the ferocity of a summer storm. She is every bit as evil as Obama, and perhaps even more so.

Obama’s Greatest Legacy Just Might Be The Queering Of America
It’s only April, but 2015 may be remembered as the year the term “transgender” fully entered mainstream consciousness.
EDITOR’S NOTE: No other president in United States history has done more to force the LGBTQ agenda down America’s throats than Barack Hussein Obama. As a direct result of his unfettered support of the queer agenda, the floodgates have opened for all manner of immorality and perversion to go mainstream. It was never about tolerance, certainly not just acceptance, but it’s about controlling the narrative to reward those who will further the LGBTQ agenda, and to punish those who oppose it.
In January, President Obama condemned the persecution of “people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender,” becoming the first president to utter the word in a State of the Union address.
“Transparent,” about an aging father who begins living as a woman, won two top awards at the Golden Globes, while transgender actress Laverne Cox of “Orange is the New Black” — who made the cover of Time magazine last year — was just cast in a new CBS drama.
The May issue of Vogue has a photo spread with transgender model Andreja Pejic, who said on Instagram this week that she “was told by various people many times over that the chances of me ending up on these pages were slim to none.” A transgender character had a recurring storyline on the just-wrapped final season of “Glee,” while transgender activist and YouTube star Jazz Jennings will star in a reality show debuting on TLC this summer.
And then there’s Bruce Jenner, whose physical appearance has become more feminine in recent months amid reports — yet to be confirmed or denied by him — that the Olympic hero turned reality TV star is exploring a very public gender transition.
We’ll learn more Friday night, when Diane Sawyer’s long-awaited interview with Jenner — conducted in February — airs on ABC.
Whatever Jenner says it’s clear that transgender people, long relegated to society’s shadows, are finally stepping into the light.
“We are at a social inflection point on transgender issues,” says Riki Wilchins, a former transgender activist and author of three books on queer theory, who believes all the attention could have a positive impact. “Civil rights for minorities come in fits and starts. We’re on an upswing now.” source

Islam In America: Lawfare And Sharia Law Compliance
Recognizing the second of the three phases of Islam is critical for concerned American citizens to stop the ongoing subversive expansion of Islamic and Sharia Law throughout America.
All phases of Islam evidence regulation of religious, political, legal, and social norms, through judicial, militia, and/or military means under Shari’a law.
In phase two, the shorter chapters located towards the back of the Qur’an supersede the earlier transcribed texts, according to the Islamic doctrine of abrogation. They parallel the time in Muhammad’s life when he formed alliances with groups outside of Mecca and began fighting non-believers who rejected Islam (22:39,40).
Mirroring this time in Muhammad’s life, these texts apply to Muslims who have become or are becoming a majority in a neighborhood, city, or region. They outline the groundwork necessary to develop a totalitarian political system that eliminates a country’s existing laws.
One predominant approach of defensive Jihad is legal. Muslims seek to de-legitimize existing laws, redefine legal terms related to human rights, and silence and punish free speech through “lawfare.” Threats increase against non-Muslims via lawsuits and dissemination of false and/or misinformation.
For example, Dearborn, Mich., “protesters” assert that their “civil rights” justify stoning Christians. Muslim communities argue their “civil rights” enable them to use their own de facto legal system (Islamic tribunals) instead of state law. Muslims successfully and intentionally censor media coverage while promoting shari’a on public school property—without consequence due to intimidation, legal threats, and blatant discrimination.
The ultimate goal is to eliminate constitutionally protected rights under the guise of “Shari’a compliance.”
The Center for Security Policy reported earlier this year that in 32 states, 146 cases existed where litigants sought to resolve a dispute applying Shari’a law instead of state law. Previously, in 2011, it discovered that in 23 states, American courts applied Shari’a law to rulings that infringed the constitutional rights of women and/or children.
Last month, Michigan’s Taylor City Council unanimously approved a resolution supporting a campaign for shari’a under the guise of “hate based on religion.” Last year, Michigan’s transit authority, SMART, banned “Leaving Islam?” bus ads designed to help Muslim girls (American citizens) who are threatened and killed—on American soil— according to Shari’a apostasy and blasphemy laws.
Eliminating constitutional rights extends to the public school classroom. Under the guise of “world religions,” Common Core teaches Islam, violating at a minimum the First and Fourteenth Amendments. Taxpayers fund “Arabic Immersion” for public schools, teaching even kindergarteners in Arabic 50 percent of the time and about “Middle Eastern culture.”

Bruce Jenner Tells Diane Sawyer That He Is A Woman
“We’re going to change the world with what we are doing” – Bruce Jenner
“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,” 1 Corinthians 6:9 (KJV)
Bruce Jenner sat down with ABC’s Diane Sawyer, and finally admitted that he feels that he is a woman in a man’s body. His hair is very long, his lips are filled with silicon plumping material, and his fingernails are long and polished. The man once called the “world’s greatest athlete” now says he can no longer hide the fact that he is, in fact, female.
Jenner fully intends to use his situation to, as he says, “change the world”. This is fully in line with the mandates of the Obama administration to continue with the queerification of America. In 2015, it is all about change. This is the “change” that Obama promised America, and boy, is ever ever making good on that promise.
The Bible says that during the time of the Tribulation, people will be wholly-given to idolatry, idol worship and manifold, sexual perversion.
“And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.” Revelation 9:20,21 (KJV)
We are rapidly approaching that time. If you are saved, you will be pulled out in the Rapture. If you are unsaved, then you will experience the Great Tribulation.
The choice is yours, God is not a Calvinist. You have free will, choose wisely.

What Heaven Will Be Missing
by Marsha West
Nathan Busenitz of The Cripplegate paints a picture of heaven as a place of: “vibrant color, good food, loud music, close friendships, as well as physical activity.”
But what will be missing from heaven? Busenitz puts forward a list of 17 items that the Apostle John reveals in the book of Revelation that will be missing in heaven. It’s reassuring to know that “Each of these represents some aspect of fallenness, rebellion, or divine judgment connected to this present world. And there will be no sign of corruption or judgment in the world to come.”

New Christian Zionists Seek Distance From ‘Wild, Crazy Popular Apocalypticism
Many popular Christian books about the end times were based upon some dispensational-type teachings. In the 1970’s, for instance, Hal Lindsey’s The Late, Great Planet Earth was a best selling book, which led to a cottage industry of end times books. There were also popular fictional works, such as Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins’ Left Behind series, which have been made into films. A recent example is Pastor John Hagee’s Four Blood Moons. Christianbook.com currently has a “Prophecy & End Times” section with 1,458 works.
This pop-apocalypticism was also on display recently when former congresswoman and presidential candidate Michele Bachmann said on a radio show that the end times were near and associated that prediction with President Barack Obama’s foreign policy.
GoFundMe blocks fundraiser for Christian bakery
In the wake of what many are viewing as a crushingly punitive and unfair judgment, former bakery owners Aaron and Melissa Klein were ordered by administrative judge Alan McCullough to pay $135,000 in fines to a lesbian couple.

Almost immediately, supporters set up a GoFundMe page on behalf of the family. Within seven hours, at approximately 6:30 pm Pacific time, it had received nearly $80,000 in funding.
