A documentary released on Wednesday describes the left’s systemic grooming campaign against children in woke schools using LGBT indoctrination material.
“Groomed: How Schools Sexualise Your Children” exposes the worrying degree to which politicised, divisive ideologies – including gender theory, critical race theory, queer theory and “transgender toolkits” – are being taught to our children through Personal, Social, Health and Economic education (PSHE).
The woke West Hollywood officials who proposed the city defund their sheriff’s department to save money had agreed to spend $85,000 to updating the city’s LGBT crosswalk to make it more inclusive.
Sepi Shyne, the city’s first LGBTQ councilmember, led a 3-2 vote to cut the current force of around 60 sheriff’s deputies by four, while also hiring 30 unarmed ‘security ambassadors’ under a scheme called Block By Block.
But despite touting the need to save money, Shyne and the council voted to spend $85,000 updating the city’s iconic rainbow crosswalk this year, adding colors to represent the transgender community and communities of color.
Lauren Meister, the Democratic mayor who voted against the plan along with one other member of the council, called it illogical, noting that the Los Angeles enclave is afflicted by a rising tide of crime and violence.
‘Most of the residents and businesses I have heard from are opposed to cutting the Sheriff’s budget,’ Meister told Fox.
The justices ruled in a 5-4 vote that Army veteran Le Roy Torres’ rights to employment were under a federal law that was enacted in 1994 in the wake of the Persian Gulf War for returning service members.
“I’m beyond thrilled and thankful that the Supreme Court agrees with our position and upheld the rights of service members like myself,” Torres told Fox News in an interview after receiving news of the ruling. “You come back from war, and you think your job is protected.”
He went on, “Today’s vote brings a sense of peace and some type of closure for me, as well as the things that I’ve been dealing with for these four or five years with my job loss.”
The service member claimed he was forced to resign from his post as a state trooper with the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS). His ouster came after he was experiencing the effects of extensive lung damage he developed after his exposure to burn pits while serving as a U.S. Army reservist in Balad, Iraq.
U.S. District Judge Ann Donnelly imposed the sentence on Kelly after a nearly three-hour hearing. Kelly did not address the court during the hearing.
The victims held hands while the sentence was read and Kelly had no apparent reaction.
The “I Believe I Can Fly” singer was convicted on one count of racketeering. The racketeering including 14 underlying acts of sexual exploitation of a child, kidnapping, bribery, and sex trafficking charges.
R. Kelly was also convicted on eight violations of the Mann Act. The legislation makes it illegal to transport people across state lines for “immoral purposes.”
Prosecutors had argued that Kelly should receive at least 25 years in prison for his conviction.
Kelly used his “fame, money and popularity” to systematically “prey upon children and young women for his own sexual gratification,” prosecutors wrote in the filing.
The Civilian Office of Police Accountability released body camera video from the shooting that wounded Chicago Police Officer Erik Moreno on the city’s West Englewood neighborhood.
Officer Moreno was struck in the arm and torso after 27-year-old Jerome Halsey rushed out of a car and opened fire during an attempted traffic stop.
Halsey stands charged with attempted first-degree murder, aggravated battery, and aggravated assault on accusations that he shot Officer Moreno.
The Wentzville Police Department on Tuesday released video footage of an officer shooting and wounding a man while he was threatening to kill himself outside an AutoZone on April 20.
54-year-old Daniel Phillips was shot by police just hours after prosecutors allege he kidnapped a former girlfriend near Troy, Missouri.
While he was with her, Phillips reportedly threatened the ex-girlfriend with a gun, but she later was released unharmed. After two officers fired shots at Phillips.
Mother and attorney slams bill that would make “California the refuge for all children who want to get access to any kind of gender interventions”
A woman who transitioned as a teen testifies against California bill that would turn California into a “sanctuary state” for child gender transition
The measure, approved by lawmakers on Monday, will be on the state ballot in November.
“In California, we get to be a beacon of hope,” Democrat Assembly Member Cristina Garcia said in a San Francisco Chronicle report.
“The Supreme Court has unleashed a seething fury felt by the majority of Americans,” Atkins, a Democrat, said. “Abortion, in my opinion and that of many, is health care, plain and simple.”
Despite Atkins’ claim that the majority of Americans are enraged by the recent Roe v. Wade decision, a recent Rasmussen poll shows that 50 percent of Americans support the recent ruling while only 45 percent oppose it.
Critics say the amendment falls short because it does not include wording that the right to abortion should be tied to viability. This amendment leaves the door open for access to the procedure on demand up until birth.
Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom signed a separate measure on Friday as part of a legislative package to protect those who receive or perform abortion from civil charges.
The Los Angeles Times reported that Newsom doubled down on his support for abortion-on-demand:
Biden Trans HHS Official Rachel Levine Pushes ‘Lifesaving’ Sex Change Surgeries, Puberty Blockers for Kids
Speaking at a DNC pride month event on Friday, Rachel Levine — formerly Richard Levine — pushed for gender transitions for young people.
“Gender affirming care is lifesaving, medically necessary, age-appropriate, and a critical tool for health care providers,” Levine said.
“As a pediatrician, when it comes to making sure kids are healthy and happy, I know how important care that affirmed someone’s true identity can be,” Levine added.
A new report from the Heritage Foundation revealed that making puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones easier for minors to access has increased youth suicide rates, a finding that directly challenges claims from pro-transgender clinical organizations, activists, and the Biden administration.
‘I’m Not Going Easy on Them Because They’re Kids’: 29-Year-Old Trans Skateboarder Defends Competing Against 13-Year-Old Girls
Ricci Tres, 29, born Richard Batres, says that his recent first prize showing at The Boardr competition in New York City is perfectly legitimate and that he does not have any advantages because he “isn’t buff,” according to the Daily Mail.
Tres, a former U.S. sailor who served four years as a machinist aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln and is the father of three children, told the Mail that he is proud of his win.
“I’m not going to go and be easy on them because they’re kids,” Tres told the paper this week.
Tres decided he is transgender only two years ago and has been taking testosterone treatments but has not had any surgical alterations. But despite being nearly in his 30s, Tres said he doesn’t think he has any advantages over the little girls he beat in the competition.
Peterson’s offending post was responding to a tweet from the account of the New York Post about Page: ” Elliot Page is ‘proud’ to introduce trans character on ‘Umbrella Academy.’”
Page, a woman, said she identified as a man in December 2020. The following year, she became the first transgender “man” to appear on the cover of TIME.
In response, Peterson tweeted “Remember when pride was a sin? And Ellen Page just had her breasts removed by a criminal physician.”
Twitter swiftly locked Peterson’s account, compelling him to delete the tweet to regain access. According to a post from Peterson’s frequent collaborator, Dave Rubin, the psychologist has said he will “never” delete the tweet.
The bill, AB2273, is known as The California Age-Appropriate Design Code Act, and has alarmed privacy advocates, who in addition to pointing out its threats to adult online anonymity, also highlight its potential to end casual browsing of the web.
Via the Register:
“First, the bill pretextually claims to protect children, but it will change the Internet for everyone,” said Eric Goldman, Santa Clara University School of Law professor, in a blog post. “In order to determine who is a child, websites and apps will have to authenticate the age of ALL consumers before they can use the service. No one wants this.”
The bill, Goldman argues, will put an end to casual web browsing, forcing companies to collect personal information they don’t want to store and protect – and that consumers don’t want to provide – in order to authenticate the age of visitors. And since age authentication generally requires identity details, that threatens the ability to use the internet anonymously.
The California Department of Justice on Monday mistakenly posted the personal details of concealed-carry permit holders when it launched its 2022 Firearms Dashboard Portal.
The information included the full name, birthday, race, and address of every permit holder in the state, as well as the date permits were issued, according to the Reload.
Though gun-rights advocates warned that a state record of permit holders would violate the privacy of gun owners, Gov. Gavin Newsom (D.) signed a bill—which Democrats passed along party lines—authorizing the database in September.
In a statement given to the Reload, California Rifle and Pistol Association president Chuck Michel said his group “is working with several legislators and sheriffs to determine the extent of the damage caused by DOJ’s doxing of law abiding gun owners. Litigation is likely.”
As the war in Ukraine drags on, more and more civilians are reporting atrocities and even war crimes being committed by the Ukrainian army. One America’s Pearson Sharp reports.
Now that both the FDA and CDC have approved the COVID-19 drug for infants as young as six months old, the Biden Regime has revamped their efforts to get citizens to take the jab.
Dr. McCullough announced that the World Council for Health called for a recall of all vaccines at the death toll rising to 40,000.
“This month, the World Council for Health, which represents 70 bodies worldwide, has called for a global recall of all vaccines, because worldwide 40,000 deaths that the safety databases across the world, 40,000 in the big ones, VAERS and the yellow card system.
Forty thousand deaths with the vaccines. Unacceptably high. Typical standard for any biologic product is 50 deaths.
Pull it off the market. Something’s gone wrong—50, not 40,000. So when there is a global recall by an international organization, this committee ought to be having emergency meetings. What are we going to do?”
Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., critiques a transgender agenda at the Department of Labor and reflects on the rot at various federal agencies on ‘The Ingraham Angle.’
The Department of Justice appears to be ignoring Democrat-linked breaches of the US Capitol Building. One America’s John Hines has more from Washington.
Every time this Admin has been asked what the goal of our war with Russia is, using Ukrainians as our proxy (i.e. how will we know when victory is achieved?), they’ve dodged the question by declaring the president of Ukraine will make that decision & the U.S. will follow his leadership.
So, the most important foreign policy position our country has faced in the last 60 years is not being made by US Congress or an American president, but by the leader of a foreign country.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson weighs in on the state of the American economy and inflation as he says companies pay for women to travel and get abortions on ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight.’
Judicial Watch announced a federal court ordered the release of testimony of Lois Lerner, former director of the Exempt Organizations Unit of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and Holly Paz, her top aide and former IRS director of Office of Rulings and Agreements.
Both IRS officials played key roles in the targeting of conservative nonprofit groups and individuals opposed to Obama policies in the run up to the 2012 presidential election.
At CPAC 2019, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton joined Congressman Devin Nunes & Byron York of the Washington Examiner to discuss the Mueller probe against President Trump and how the FBI and DOJ knew there was no collusion between Donald Trump and Russia over the 2016 election.
Unilever, the parent company of Ben & Jerry’s, overruled the ice cream brand’s boycott of Israel on Wednesday and said it would resume sales in the Jewish state through a third-party vendor, stating that “anti-Semitism has no place in any society.”
In a statement on Tuesday, Unilever said it sold Ben & Jerry’s business interests in Israel to Avi Zinger, an independent vendor who has produced and distributed the ice cream franchise’s products under an exclusive contract since 1987. The sale is part of Unilever’s settlement with Zinger, who sued the company in March after Ben & Jerry’s cut off his 35-year contract.
The decision is the most high-profile defeat yet for the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, and comes nearly a year after Ben & Jerry’s company board announced it would suspend its sales in disputed areas of Israel’s West Bank.
Unilever said that after months of consultations, including with the Israeli government, it “believes this is the best outcome for Ben & Jerry’s in Israel” and “look[s] forward to continuing to make a positive contribution to Israel’s economy and society for many decades to come.”
Egypt warns Iran not to attack Israelis; Indirect U.S.-Iran talks abruptly halt TV7Israel News 29.06
1) Israeli Security Forces continue to operate in the West Bank districts of Judea and Samaria – to uproot terror elements – as part of Operation “Waves Breaker.”
2) Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz unveils Iran’s cyber efforts to target Israel, the United States, Britain and France – among other Western nations and global institutions.

World leaders at the Group of 7 summit in Germany signaled they will turn back to fossil fuels despite their commitments to a green energy transition thanks to the ongoing energy crisis.
The war in Ukraine is heavily restricting fuel imports, with Russia cutting off European access to the Nord Stream pipeline and the US imposing a fuel embargo on Putin. As a result, the U.S. and European countries are abandoning their climate agenda to return to fossil fuels.
Amid skyrocketing fuel prices, the Biden administration has been forced to abandon certain planks of its climate agenda. Biden called for a temporary increase in domestic fuel production two weeks ago and also asked congress to suspend the federal per-gallon gas tax for three months last week.
“Today we have decided to invite Finland and Sweden to become members of NATO, and agreed to sign Accession Protocols,” the alliance said in a declaration following meetings between world leaders. “The accession of Finland and Sweden will make them safer, NATO stronger, and the Euro-Atlantic area more secure.”
The news comes less than 24 hours after NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg announced that Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had reversed his opposition to expanding the alliance in the wake of Russia’s deadly war in Ukraine.
The declaration applauded the efforts by Turkey, Finland and Sweden on their timely negotiations and said the soon-to-be 32-member alliance would further increase its security defenses across Europe.
Q&A with Dr. Brent Boles about why abortion (the direct and intentional killing of a preborn child) is never medically necessary.
And why ectopic pregnancy and miscarriage treatments are not impacted by the overturn of Roe v Wade.
It doesn’t appear she’s telling the truth! In this episode, I address why the latest “scandal” surfacing at the January 6th star chamber hearing can’t possibly be true.
