 (Friday Church News Notes, December 21, 2018,, 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted from “Church of England,”, Dec. 13, 2018: “Proving that it is constantly transforming with the times, the Church of England has announced it will now offer baptism-style ceremonies for transgender persons, people who deny their biological sex--e.g., a man who claims he is a woman--and want to be ‘re-baptized’ in their new sexual identity and new name. The Scripture teaches that God made us in His image, male and female, but the Church of England believes it can do better. The decision to offer the new ‘Affirmation of Baptismal Faith’ was decided by the House of Bishops in England on Monday, Dec. 3. ... [I]n the ceremony, ‘the minister lays their hands on the candidate or candidates, addresses them by name, and prays for them,’ reported The Telegraph. The Affirmation of Baptismal Faith enables people to ‘renew the commitments made in baptism and in a public setting and provides space for those who have undergone a major transition to re-dedicate their life to Jesus Christ,’ according to the bishops. Guidance for the Affirmation states, ‘For a trans person to be addressed liturgically by the minister for the first time by their chosen name may be a powerful moment in the service.’ The guidance also clarifies that ‘clergy are being told to call men by their new female names, and women by their new male names,’ reported LifeSiteNews. ... Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a ‘mental disorder’ that merits treatment, that sex change is ‘biologically impossible,’ and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder. ‘Sex change is biologically impossible,’ said McHugh. ‘People who undergo sex-reassignment surgery do not change from men to women or vice versa. Rather, they become feminized men or masculinized women. Claiming that this is a civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with and promote a mental disorder.’”LEADING COLLEGE FACULTY UNION SAYS BELIEF IN ONLY TWO GENDERS IS BASED ON “IDEOLOGY” 
(Friday Church News Notes, December 21, 2018,,, 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted from “Leading College Faculty,” Christian Post, Dec. 12, 2018: “One of America’s leading college faculty unions is decrying attempts to define gender as ‘binary,’ and claims that the Trump administration and the ‘religious fundamentalists’ who support such a definition are moved by ideology, not fact. The American Association of University Professors, which has 500 chapters and 39 state associations, released a statement last month titled ‘The Assault on Gender and Gender Studies.’ The statement, which was created by AAUP’s subcommittee of Committee A on Academic Freedom and Tenure and the Committee on Women in the Academic Profession, railed against the Trump administration for considering a plan to define gender as a ‘biological, immutable condition’ defined by a person’s sex at birth. The plan stoked fears that the word ‘transgender’ could be ‘defined out of existence.’ The AAUP statement also condemned Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán for issuing a decree prohibiting gender studies courses from being taught in universities throughout the country. The statement also went after administrations in Poland, Brazil and Bulgaria for ‘attempts to refute the scholarly consensus that gender identity is variable and mutable.’ ... AAUP claims that those ‘authoritarian efforts’ lead to a justification of ‘racial, class, and sexual policing that disciplines forms of kinship and homemaking.’ ‘Politicians and religious fundamentalists are neither scientists nor scholars,’ the AAUP statement asserts. ‘Their motives are ideological. It is they who are offering “gender ideology” by attempting to override the insights of serious scholars. By substituting their ideology for years of assiduous research, they impose their will in the name of a science that is without factual support. This is a cynical invocation of science for purely political ends.’ ... Despite accusing politicians and religious fundamentalists of having ideological motives with no ‘factual support,’ AAUP failed in its statement to provide any sort of citation to the ‘biologists, anthropologists, historians, and psychologists’ it relies on to form its own argument. Although the AAUP statement wants to present politicians and religious fundamentalists as the main purveyor of the argument against beliefs in mutable gender, doctors and academics are also calling on the Trump administration to define gender as a ‘biological, immutable condition.’”PROMINENT DOCTORS SIGN “PETITION TO UPHOLD THE SCIENTIFIC DEFINITION OF SEX IN FEDERAL LAW AND POLICY” 
 (Friday Church News Notes, December 21, 2018,,, 866-295-4143) - Prominent medical doctors and other educators have signed a “Petition to Uphold the Scientific Definition of Sex in Federal Law and Policy.” It is addressed to the Trump administration. Following is an excerpt: “We, the undersigned medical, legal, and policy organizations and individuals applaud the Trump Administration’s intention to uphold the scientific definition of sex in federal law and policy, such that girls and women will regain their sex-based legal protections, and the human rights of all will be preserved. ... Not only is an expanded definition of sex unscientific, but it has also proven harmful, as we detail below. According to the Institute of Medicine, sex is a narrowly defined biological term. Sex is a biological trait that defines living things as male and female based on the complement of sex chromosomes and the presence of reproductive organs. ... Human sex is a binary, biologically determined, and immutable trait from conception forward. The norm for human design is to be conceived either male or female. Human sexuality is binary by design for the obvious purpose of the reproduction of our species. This principle is self-evident. ‘XY’ and ‘XX’ are genetic markers of male and female, respectively, and are found in every cell of the human body, including the brain. Sex is established at conception, declares itself in utero, and is acknowledged at birth. Sex differences are real and consequential. The Institute of Medicine recognized the singular importance of sex to health and the field of medicine nearly two decades ago. Sex chromosomes impart innate differences between men and women in literally every cell of our bodies. There are over 6500 shared genes that are expressed differently in human males and females. These differences impact our brains, organ systems, propensity for developing certain diseases, differential responses to drugs, toxins and pain, differential cognitive and emotional processes, behavior and more. ... In reality, an individual who identifies as transgender remains either a biological male or female. ... Sex is not a spectrum; congenital disorders are not additional sexes. The final result of sex development in humans is unambiguously male or female over 99.98 percent of the time. ... The use of congenital disorders to advance the myth that there are a multitude of human sexes which exist on a spectrum is ideological and political activism, not science.” The petition has been signed by the chief officers of the American College of Pediatricians (Michelle Cretella, M.D. and Quentin Van Meter, M.D.), as well as many other medical doctors, psychiatrists, and law professors. THE FALSE CLAIM THAT UPHOLDING SCIENTIFIC DEFINITION OF SEX INCREASES SUICIDE AMONG TRANSGENDER 
 (Friday Church News Notes, December 21, 2018,,, 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted from “Petition to Uphold the Scientific Definition of Sex in Federal Law and Policy,”, Dec. 4, 2018: “The claim that upholding the scientific definition of sex will increase suicide among transgender identifying people is false. ... Sweden is a transgender affirming country that has adopted laws and policies conflating sex and gender-identity. Nevertheless, a study conducted by researchers there in 2011 found the rate of completed suicides among surgically ‘gender-affirmed’ adults to be 19 times greater than that of the general population (“Long-Term Follow-Up of Transsexual Persons Undergoing Sex Reassignment Surgery: Cohort Study in Sweden,” PloS One 6, 2011). Clearly, transgender affirmation does not prevent suicide, and may paradoxically worsen the emotional health of these individuals in the long term.”

To donate to support the campaign to halt indoctrination in our K-12 public schools, CLICK HERE.]
The David Horowitz Freedom Center has completed a comprehensive update and reorganization of, a website devoted to halting indoctrination in America’s public schools. The site exposes instances of classroom and curricular indoctrination across the United States and seeks to work with parents and legislators to enact a Code of Ethics for K-12 Public School Teachers in their states.
Our public schools have traditionally been the cornerstone of our country's democratic values, but no longer. As recent events documented on reveal, no age group and no corner of our K-12 classrooms are immune from the left's ideological aggression.
• At the Edina School District in Edina, Minnesota, all employees, even bus drivers, must take "Equity and Racial Justice Training" instructing them that "dismantling white privilege" is at the core of the district's mission. They must acknowledge their racial guilt, and embrace the district's "equity" ideology.
• To enhance "cultural diversity," students at Maryland's La Plata High School were ordered to copy the Islamic creed "Shahada" which states in part, "There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah." One worksheet distributed by the school stated, "Most Muslims' faith is stronger than the average Christian."
• An Ohio middle school teacher assigned his students to rank 12 individuals, described by race, profession, gender, religion and sexuality, by who is most deserving to survive an apocalypse on Earth. The potential survivors included “a racist armed police officer who is accused of using excessive force”; “a militant African-American medical student”; “a 21-year-old female Muslim international student”; and “a homosexual male professional athlete.”
• Public high schools in Newton, Massachusetts were sued by a coalition of parents after they discovered that their children had been given lessons from the Arab World Studies Notebook, a textbook which is funded by a Saudi Arabian oil company which also funds the terrorist groups Hamas and Al-Qaeda. This textbook falsely claims that there is a “Hollywood Jewish conspiracy” to portray Arabs negatively in film and that Jerusalem is “Palestine’s capital.”
• Maurice Sendak Community School, a public school located in Brooklyn, New York, hosted a “Drag Queen Story Hour” for first grade students during which adult males dressed as women read books to students. A teacher at the school commented, “During our debrief …students were preaching the incredible lessons they had learned, like ‘it’s OK to be different,’ and ‘there’s no such thing as “boy” and “girl” things.’”
These are just a few of the outrageous instances of indoctrination—affecting students as young as five years old—which are documented on
The centerpiece of the website is the Code of Ethics for K-12 Teachers, a legislative proposal that would forbid public school teachers from using their classrooms for political, ideological, or religious advocacy. Teachers in violation of the Code would be subject to penalties such as probation, suspension and loss of their teaching licenses.
A new feature of the website solicits volunteers to call or email their state legislators to encourage them to introduce legislation adopting the Code of Ethics in their states. Legislators in Virginia have already taken up this challenge, and we expect many more to follow.
The site also includes three recent pamphlets published by the Freedom Center and devoted to the crisis in our nation’s schools: Leftist Indoctrination in Our K-12 Public Schools, Shame of the Schools: How the Democrats Have Destroyed Public Education in the Inner Cities, and Readin’, Writin’, and Jihadin’: The Islamization of American Public Schools.
Visitors to the site may also sign-up to receive weekly email newsletters highlighting the latest examples of the left’s incursion into our children’s classrooms or report instances of indoctrination in their own schools.
“Our public schools have been transformed into indoctrination and recruitment centers for the political left,” explained David Horowitz, founder of the Freedom Center. “It is long past time that we addressed this perversion of our educational system. It is a violation of the trust we have traditionally placed in the hands of the nation’s teachers, and it needs to be remedied by a Code of Ethics that restores traditional non-partisan attitudes to our classrooms.”
Horowitz continued: “The Code of Ethics for K-12 Teachers enforces and restores the traditional approach to a democratic education, which is that children are in school to be taught how to think, not – as in authoritarian and totalitarian societies – to be told what to think.”

 The Leon Show—Vaccines and our Children 

The history [of vaccination] is important because human beings have actually created a lot of their own problems. Now, while they didn’t create the viruses and the bacteria, at least back then they didn’t… today, they are, they created the conditions that made these microbes extremely dangerous. So, when you look at how people were living 150, 200 years ago, let’s take for instance English… where there were peasants that were living out on the land that was owned by the wealthy and they were able to grow their own vegetables and they had clean water that they were able to retrieve on their own, and they were doing okay… And diseases weren’t spreading like wildfire because the population was living farther apart… Then comes something called the Land Enclosure Act where the people that owned the land were then able to say, I don’t want you there anymore, you have to leave. And so all these peasants were forced into the cities, and it was during the industrial revolution.
 ‘Incredible Hulk’ Actor Hospitalized After Getting Pneumococcal Shot
 ‘Incredible Hulk’ Actor Hospitalized After Getting Pneumococcal Shot

The star of the 1970s TV series “The Incredible Hulk,” Lou Ferrigno, was hospitalized on Dec. 12, 2018 after receiving the pneumococcal vaccine for pneumonia. The vaccination left Ferrigno with fluid in his right bicep.1
Mr. Ferrigno, 67, tweeted:
Went in for a pneumonia shot and landed up here with fluid in my bicep.  I’ll be ok but it’s important that you keep an eye on who’s giving the shot and make sure they not only swab the spot correctly but that you watch the needle come out of the package.1
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are two pneumococcal vaccines licensed and used in the United States today: pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPSV23) and pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13). The CDC recommends the 13-strain pneumococcal conjugate vaccine for all children younger than two years old, all adults 65 years or older, and people two through 64 years old with certain medical conditions. The CDC recommends the 23-strain pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine for all adults 65 years or older, people two through 64 years old with certain medical conditions, and adults 19 through 64 years old who smoke cigarettes.2
It is unclear which of the two pneumococcal vaccines was given to Ferrigno.
In an interview with CNN, William Schaffner, MD of Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, Tennessee said that the accumulation of fluid in Ferrigno’s arm may have been a “reaction to the vaccine” or it might have been because the “vaccination itself was not done properly.”1 If a vaccine, for example, is administered too high on the arm it can miss the muscle and instead hit a fluid-filled sac called the bursa, which protects the tendons of the rotator cuff in the shoulder. The debilitating vaccine injury is known as SIRVA ((shoulder injuries related to vaccine administration).3
Relatively few health care providers have ever heard of SIRVA and they tend to dismiss it, wrote Jennie Ann Freiman, MD in an article published in The Vaccine Reaction last year. It is an “underreported, painful side effect of vaccinations.”4
SIRVA is now recognized by the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) and the number of claims for compensation have been steadily rising.4
  Is the Chickenpox Vaccine Creating a Shingles Epidemic?
Is the Chickenpox Vaccine Creating 
a Shingles Epidemic? 
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
Many of you reading this probably remember having chickenpox as a child. You were likely tired, feverish and had an itchy rash, which subsequently cleared up, leaving you with lifelong natural immunity. Getting chickenpox was so common it was a rite of passage of sorts, which virtually all school-age children experienced.
Today chickenpox has become much less common due to the routine administration of the chickenpox (varicella) vaccination. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends two doses of chickenpox vaccine — the first dose at 12 to 15 months of age and a second dose at age 4 to 6 years.1
They claim it is 90 percent effective at preventing chickenpox (while noting that some people who are vaccinated may still get the disease), which may sound like a success story. But there is much that remains unknown about vaccination and the way it affects human health and disease. Case in point: shingles (herpes zoster).

Shingles is Caused by the Chickenpox Virus

Shingles is caused by the varicella-zoster virus (VZV), the same virus that causes chickenpox. When initially infected, the virus leads to chickenpox, which then lies dormant in your body. Usually, it causes no other problems but in some people the virus reactivates later in life, leading to shingles.
Shingles isn’t typically life-threatening, but it causes a painful rash and sometimes fatigue, headache and fever. In some cases, it leads to postherpetic neuralgia, which is ongoing pain due to nerve damage that can last for months or even years, or neurological problems caused by inflammation of the brain.
While shingles isn’t contagious, an adult who’s never had chickenpox can get the disease after being exposed to someone with shingles. Adults with chickenpox actually experience this disease with more intensified symptoms and have a higher risk of complications, which is why it’s better to have this illness during childhood (and gain the lifelong natural immunity).
Shingles rates are increasing in the U.S., but according to the CDC, “We do not know the reason for this increase.” They then note, “Some experts suggest that exposure to varicella boosts a person’s immunity to VZV and reduces the risk for VZV reactivation. Thus, they are concerned that routine childhood varicella vaccination, recommended in the United States in 1996, could lead to an increase in herpes zoster in adults due to reduced opportunities for being exposed to varicella.”2
In other words, being exposed to chicken pox in the community (or in your household, via your children) may have the protective effect of boosting your immunity against the virus, thereby lowering your risk of shingles as an adult.
Shingles can be prevented by ordinary contact, such as receiving a hug from a grandchild who is getting or recovering from chickenpox. It acts as a natural immunity booster. But with the advent of the chickenpox vaccine, there is less chickenpox around to provide that natural immune boost for children and adults.
The CDC downplays this theory, noting that shingles rates started increasing before the introduction of the chickenpox vaccine and did not accelerate after the chickenpox vaccination program started. However, some research suggests that the chickenpox vaccine may be playing a role in accelerating cases of shingles.
As noted by the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), “Today, after chickenpox vaccine has been widely used by children … and has interrupted natural circulation of the varicella zoster virus in the U.S. population, experts believe that half of Americans reaching 85 years of age will experience shingles at some point in their lifetime.”3

Studies Suggest Between Chickenpox Vaccine and Increasing Shingles Rates

In 2016, research published in the American Journal of Epidemiology used mathematical modeling to look into the epidemiology of shingles after chickenpox vaccination. Researchers explained:4
“Given the sparse empirical evidence, mathematical models designed to evaluate the impact of varicella immunization strategies are forced to rely on theoretical, rather than data driven, assumptions to incorporate exogenous boosting assumptions while balancing parsimony in model structure with biological plausibility.
To date, the available formulations of the exogenous boosting hypothesis can be classified into 3 main groups: Despite these structural differences, modeling studies have consistently confirmed the likelihood of a detrimental effect of varicella vaccination on HZ incidence.”
The study analyzed the impact of chickenpox vaccination on shingles epidemiology, as predicted by three models, which revealed that all of the models predicted that chickenpox vaccination lead to an increase in shingles incidence. “Our results reinforce the idea that a better understanding of HZ pathogenesis is required before further mass varicella immunization programs are set out,” the researchers stated.5
In 2005, research by Gary Goldman, PhD also revealed that the chickenpox vaccine could cause a shingles epidemic by limiting wild-type chickenpox virus. He noted, “It may be difficult to design booster interventions that are cost-effective and meet or exceed the level of protection provided by immunologic boosting that existed naturally in the community in the prelicensure era.”6
In other words, you can’t beat Mother Nature, which already had a system in place to keep shingles at bay. In fact, in 2002, research writing in the journal Vaccine presented data confirming that exposure to chickenpox boosts immunity to shingles.
“We show that exposure to varicella is greater in adults living with children and that this exposure is highly protective against zoster [singles],” they wrote, adding that this had serious implications for mass vaccination against chickenpox: “Mass varicella vaccination is expected to cause a major epidemic of herpes-zoster, affecting more than 50% of those aged 10-44 years at the introduction of vaccination.”7

Chickenpox ‘Outbreaks’ Blamed on Unvaccinated

North Carolina recently had an “outbreak” of chickenpox, which was blamed on a school with a number of families claiming religious exemption from vaccines.8 There were at least 36 students affected, with health officials sensationalizing the event with claims that it could spread to the surrounding community.
Remember, while highly contagious, chickenpox typically produces only a mild disease and recovery leaves a child with long-lasting immunity. It’s hardly a newsworthy “outbreak.” Meanwhile, a review of the U.S. chickenpox vaccination program concluded that the vaccine has:
  • Not proven to be cost-effective
  • Increased the incidence of shingles
  • Failed to provide long-term protection from the disease it targets ― chickenpox ― as vaccine efficacy was found to have declined well below 80 percent by 2002
  • Is less effective than the natural immunity that existed in the general population before the vaccine was used on a widespread basis in the U.S.
In fact, in 2002, the New England Journal of Medicine published a study of an outbreak of chickenpox that occurred at a day care center despite most of the children having been vaccinated.9 The disease first occurred in a child who had received the chickenpox vaccine three years earlier, and who then infected half of his classmates.
The effectiveness of the vaccine was just 44 percent, and those who had been vaccinated three years or more before the outbreak were at greater risk of contracting chickenpox. According to the study:<10
“In this outbreak, vaccination provided poor protection against varicella … A longer interval since vaccination was associated with an increased risk of vaccine failure. Breakthrough infections in vaccinated, healthy persons can be as infectious as varicella in unvaccinated persons.”
It’s also worth noting that the chickenpox vaccine is made from live, attenuated (weakened) varicella virus. When you or your child get a live virus attenuated vaccine, you can shed vaccine-strain live virus in your body fluids, and the vaccine-strain virus could potentially be transmitted to others, in whom it might cause serious complications. One type of shingles vaccine being administered in the U.S. is also a live-virus vaccine.

Shingles Vaccine Touted as the Solution

The pharmaceutical industry has responded to rising rates of shingles that have possibly been triggered by chickenpox vaccination by creating another shot: a shingles vaccine for seniors. There are two types available in the U.S. Zostavax, a live attenuated vaccine manufactured by Merck, has a dismal effectiveness rate of only 51 percent in adults 60 years and older.11
Merck, by the way, is the same pharmaceutical company that manufactures the chickenpox vaccine. Further, according to NVIC, “[E]fficacy studies showed a significant decrease in vaccine effectiveness one-year post-vaccination and by nine years, Zostavax was determined to be no longer effective at preventing shingles.”12
Shingrix, manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals, is a newer two-dose shingles vaccine, licensed in 2017. Although it is said to be over 90 percent effective in adults 50 years and older, it’s a genetically engineered vaccine and, according to NVIC, “no test is available to determine immunity to shingles and long-term vaccine effectiveness is unknown.”
Solving a potentially vaccine-caused shingles epidemic with another vaccine may be creating more problems than it solves. For instance, the CDC notes that, rarely, “live shingles vaccine can cause rash or shingles.”13 vaccine-shoulder-injuries.aspx”>Shoulder pain, fainting and severe allergic reactions have also been noted.

Are There Risks to the Chickenpox Vaccine?

All vaccinations come with risks, and the chickenpox vaccine is no exception. “Reported complications from chickenpox vaccine,” according to NVIC, “include shock, seizures, brain inflammation (encephalitis), thrombocytopenia (blood disorder), Guillian Barre syndrome, death and infection with vaccine strain chickenpox or transmission of vaccine strain chickenpox to others.”14
There are two live virus vaccine for chickenpox in the U.S. (both made by Merck). Varivax contains only chickenpox while ProQuad contains chickenox along with measles, mumps and rubella vaccines. NVIC reported, “A CDC vaccine safety study found that children aged 12-23 months were twice as likely to experience febrile seizures with ProQuad compared to administering MMR and Varivax separately.”15
Perhaps the greatest risk of all of the chickenpox vaccine is that it removes the chance for a person to acquire life-long immunity against chickenpox via natural infection and recovery. Ultimately, the temporary immunity offered via chickenpox vaccination may leave those vaccinated at a heightened risk of more serious disease.
This was a major reason why NVIC did not support the addition of chickenpox vaccine to the mandatory childhood vaccination schedule:16
“The vast majority of children recover from chickenpox disease and do not suffer complications. They are left with a qualitatively superior immunity to the disease. The chickenpox vaccine only gives temporary immunity and leaves older children and adults vulnerable to chickenpox later in life when complications can be much more serious.
Mass use of the chickenpox vaccine by children has eliminated the opportunity for natural asymptomatic boosting of immunity in adults and left adults vulnerable to shingles later in life.”

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — Transgender activists, with the backing of officials in the city of San Francisco, have established the world’s first “Transgender Cultural District” in the Tenderloin section of the city in order to “create a safe, welcoming and empowering neighborhood lead by trans people for trans people” and to “preserve the places where transgender history took place for future generations.”
According to reports, Jane Kim, who serves on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and represents the district that includes the Tenderloin, introduced legislation last year that would authorize and affirm the creation of “Compton’s Transgender Cultural District.”
“The lower Tenderloin is the most important neighborhood in America for transgender history, culture, and civil rights,” she said in a statement. “By creating the Compton’s TLGB District we are honoring this vibrant community built by transgender people, and are sending a message to the world that trans people are welcome here.”
The area, which spans six blocks in the southeastern Tenderloin, as well as two blocks of 6th Street, includes the site of the now former Gene Compton’s Cafeteria, an eatery that would often call the police in the 1960’s as it felt that the loitering of men who dressed as women was bad for business, and sought to force them to leave.
In 1966, as a number of transgender advocates sought to protest what they believed was police harassment, Compton’s Cafeteria called the authorities to report unruly behavior. When one officer sought to arrest one protestor who was dressed in feminine attire, the man resisted arrest and rather threw his coffee in the officer’s face.
A number of those present then began to riot, throwing dishes, furniture, and smashing the restaurant windows, as well as those of a police car parked outside. The riot reportedly lasted for two days.
The cafeteria is now used for transitional housing, and last year, a developer agreed to use $300,000 for the establishment of the transgender district, which will include a community center at the site of a former homosexual bathhouse, The Daily Beast reports.
In November 2017, the city passed a proposal to designate $3 million for the various cultural districts, and the Compton’s district was later allocated $215,000 for its project.
The manager of the district is a man who goes by the drag name of Honey Mahogany, who is known for his appearances on “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”
“The Tenderloin has always held a really special place in my heart as a trans person with the way the community is accepting of gender variant and trans people of color,” he told the Daily Beast.
Mahogany is reportedly among those who pooled together to purchase the homosexual bar “The Stud,” when it faced closure.
“Many of our traditions are passed down through queer bars because those are the places where our elders interact with younger generations,” he stated. “Drag is often seen as a way of storytelling and passing on stories of previous generations.”
In keeping with the project’s aim to “stabilize and economically empower the transgender community through ownership of buildings, business, homes, historic sites, and community space,” Supervisor Kim said that the city will provide grants for small business in the district.
“The first transgender commemorative neighborhood in the nation’s history is well timed given the president’s attack on transgender people,” she remarked. “We will have grants for small businesses and we need to be intentional to make the district an anti-displacement strategy.”
Proverbs 14:34 says, “Righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.”
In his book “Holiness,” the late Anglican preacher J.C. Ryle also taught, “Let us remember … that every part of the world bears testimony to the fact that sin is the universal disease of all mankind. Search the globe from east to west and from pole to pole, search every nation in every climate in the four quarters of the earth, search every rank and class in our own country from the highest to the lowest, and under every circumstance and condition, the report will always be the same.”
“… Everywhere the human heart is naturally ‘deceitful above all things and desperately wicked.’”

The Federal Reserve has decided not to come to the rescue this time. 
All of the economic numbers tell us that the economy is slowing down, and on Wednesday Fed Chair Jerome Powell even admitted that economic conditions are “softening”, but the Federal Reserve raised interest rates anyway.  As one top economist put it, raising rates as we head into an economic downturn is “economic malpractice” They know that higher rates will slow down the economy even more, but it isn’t as if the Fed was divided on this move.  In fact, it was a unanimous vote to raise rates.  They clearly have an agenda, and that agenda is definitely not about helping the American people.
Early on Wednesday, Wall Street seemed to believe that the Federal Reserve would do the right thing, and the Dow was up nearly 400 points.  But then the announcement came, and the market began sinking dramatically.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 720 points in just two hours, and the Dow ended the day down a total of 351 points.  This is the lowest that the Dow has been all year, 60 percent of the stocks listed on the S&P 500 are in bear market territory, and at this point approximately four trillion dollars of stock market wealth has been wiped out.

We haven’t seen anything like this since the last financial crisis.  This is officially the worst quarter for the stock market since the fourth quarter of 2008, and it is the worst December that Wall Street has experienced since 1931.
It is insanity to raise interest rates when stocks are already crashing, but the Federal Reserve did it anyway.

They knew what kind of reaction this would cause on Wall Street and in other global markets, but that didn’t stop them.  The financial world is in utter turmoil, and this move by the Fed has definitely added fuel to the fire.
Could it be possible that they actually want a stock market crash?
Some are suggesting that the reason why the vote was unanimous was because they wanted to send a “strong signal” to President Trump.  He has been extremely critical of the Federal Reserve in recent weeks, and this could be a way for the Fed to show Trump who is really in charge.
They are calling this “the Trump economy”, but that is simply not true.  And when Barack Obama was in the White House, it wasn’t “the Obama economy” either.  Ultimately, it is the Federal Reserve that is running the economy, and they fiercely guard their independence and their authority.
President Trump knows that the only way that he is going to win in 2020 is if the economy is doing well, and he also understands that higher interest rates will slow the economy down.
So essentially the Federal Reserve has a tremendous amount of political power in their hands.
During the Obama era, the Fed pushed interest rates all the way to the floor and kept them there for many years.
But now the Federal Reserve has raised interest rates seven times since Donald Trump took office, and four of those rate hikes have been under current Fed Chair Jerome Powell.
Needless to say, it certainly doesn’t take a lot of imagination to figure out how Donald Trump is feeling about Powell at this moment.

For some reason I keep envisioning Trump walking into this presser and saying “Jay, you’re fired. I’m sorry, you’re fired.”

Then going to the podium and saying “Jay is a great person, has a beautiful wife, very smart man, but I will find someone who is going to do a great job.”
Meanwhile, we continue to get more indications that the U.S. economy is heading for difficult times.  Just consider the following news about FedEx
FedEx shares are plunging after what Morgan Stanley called a “jarring” cut to its annual forecasts, suggesting global growth is slowing far more than most expect – in fact, the bank hinted at the possibility of a “severe recession” unfolding – and prompting expectations of an “uber-dovish hike” by the Fed.
The global logistics bellwether slashed its outlook just three months after raising the view, reflecting an unexpected and abrupt change in the company’s view of the global economy amid rising trade tensions between the U.S. and China. Not only were the cuts were deeper than the Street expected according to Morgan Stanley analyst Ravi Shanker, but everyone is pointing to the following comment from the press release: “Global trade has slowed in recent months and leading indicators point to ongoing deceleration in global trade near-term.”
To see the term “severe recession” used in such a context is more than just a little bit alarming.
The last time the U.S. economy went through a recession, millions of Americans lost their jobs and we saw a wave of mortgage defaults unlike anything we had ever seen before in modern American history.
Are we about to go through something similar?
Earlier today, a CNN article also used the term “recession”, and it discussed the fact that investors now want big corporations to focus on paying down their debts instead of buying back shares of stock…
Fears of an economic slowdown — or even recession — have turned a spotlight on the debt that businesses piled up during the past decade, when borrowing costs were historically low.
For the first time since the Great Recession, investors want companies to prioritize paying down debt rather than investing in the future or share buybacks and dividends, according to a Bank of America Merrill Lynch survey of global fund managers.
But stock buybacks are one of the only things that has been propping up the stock market.  The only way for the bubble to continue is for corporations to go into dizzying amounts of debt in order to fund massive stock buybacks, because the Federal Reserve clearly does not intend to support the markets right now.
At least for the short-term, the Federal Reserve could have calmed the markets and encouraged economic activity by leaving interest rates alone.
In the end, they decided not to do that, and that makes one wonder what they are really trying to achieve. 


 Iran Media Censors Infowars Video Report, Tries to Hide Growing Populist Movement
 Will the people of Iran successfully claim their freedom? Or will globalist forces keep the nation within its grasp?
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
On December 10th 2018, Infowars published a video report entitled, “IRAN: The Smell of War Grows Strong in the Persian Gulf.” The report lays out a series of current events spelling out the growing conflict between the United States and Iran.
Within 24 hours of its publishing on Infowars, the popular Amad News Network releases a version of the Infowars report, with Persian subtitles added – but with the final twenty seconds removed.

The Amad News Network deleted the part of the video discussing how globalist-controlled Reza Pahlavi and the Mujaheddin were prepared to seize control of the nation, while the populist movement known as “Restart” hoped to claim independence for the people of Iran.
By censoring the final twenty seconds, the video report only suggests that the US is preparing to engage Iran in armed conflict. And the main purpose of the report was to point out how both Reza Pahlavi and the Mujaheddin are nothing more than globalist proxies, no different than the current regime.
This is covered in more detail in the Infowars report: “IRAN REGIME CHANGE: Globalist Forces Prepare to Keep Hold of Iran”

Days after Amad News Network publishes their censored video, they publish an article giving support for Reza Pahlavi.

And at the same time, BBC Persian and Farsi VOA release similar articles – all supporting Reza Pahlavi, and all released days after Amad News Network publishes their version of the Infowars video, in which any mention of Reza Pahlavi as a globalist has been censored.

The Amad News Network often claims to be opposed to the Islamic Republic, but they are owned and operated by known Reformists. And their continued support of the Mujaheddin and Reza Pahlavi suggests that they are no different than globalist run BBC Persian and Farsi VOA.
All of these so-called opposition groups are given a voice on the Regime-controlled media. The only voice that is silenced in Iran is the apparent voice of the people. The populist movement known as “Restart” has been censored from Iranian media for years, and they are the only opposition that wants a secular representative government. They are the only opposition that wants freedom for the people of Iran. And they are the only opposition that openly supports Israel and the United States.

The Mujaheddin and Reza Pahlavi have always been tools of the Globalists. They have always held the support of bad actors such as Hillary Clinton, John McCain, John Kerry, and John Bolton.
The original Infowars report that was censored; “IRAN: The Smell of War Grows Strong in the Persian Gulf” asked the question at its very end:
“What role will the United States play in this growing conflict?”
And just days ago, The US State Department answered this question.

Brian Hook, Senior Policy Adviser to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, released a video on USA darFarsi. In this video he answers the question:
“Why doesn’t the United States support Reza Pahlavi?”
His answer was that the United States respects the right of the Iranian people to choose their own government, and that they deserve to have their own representative government.
So now the question is: will the people of Iran successfully claim their freedom? Or will globalist forces keep the nation within its grasp?
Infowars has been the only western media reporting on the RESTART populist movement.
Here are the reports:

 Exclusive: Trump Thinks Americans Will Engage in an Armed Revolt if Deep State Tries to Remove Him From Office
 45 knows the swamp is coming for him 
and is prepared to fight
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
President Trump told a prominent person during a phone call last week that he thinks the American people will revolt if the deep state tries to remove him from office via impeachment or any other method because Americans are “too well armed”.
According to our sources, Trump thinks that Democrats are so intent on stopping America’s recovery that they will set off a destabilizing crisis on the border, an economic collapse or even civil war as a means of ejecting him from the Oval Office.

However, Trump believes that both the U.S. military and the American people would not stand for such a scenario and would rise up against it and that there would be a “revolt” because Americans are “too well armed”.
The phone call was further discussed during a meeting between three people, one of whom was Roger Stone and another being the same person who spoke directly to Trump.
Other prominent individuals close to the president have confirmed that what Trump said during the call was his ongoing state of mind over the past several weeks, if not more, and that the phone call wasn’t unique in that sense.
Watch live as Alex Jones, Roger Stone & Owen Shroyer discuss this and other breaking news!
The conversation was prompted following criticism from some figures on the right that Trump was not following through on his main campaign promises, specifically with regard to the wall.
The comments line up with previous public statements made by Trump about how the American people would respond if he were to be impeached.
“I’m not concerned, no,” the president told Reuters reporters last month during a conversation in the Oval Office. “I think that the people would revolt if that happened.”
A third person who attended the meeting at which the phone call was discussed said he was very fatalistic about the destiny of the Trump presidency and the country.
Alex Jones spoke with all three individuals who attended the meeting over the last few days.
Trump himself is apparently extremely taken aback at the level to which the country has been sold out by embedded groups within the government, particularly with regard to Chinese influence.
The president also now suspects that the Federal Reserve is working with the deep state to plunge the economy as a way of crushing his re-election hopes, if he makes it that far.
However, Trump expressed his confidence that the American people would choose the right side and have his back, which in turn sends a strong message to the establishment forces who are plotting his demise.


 Update: Vet’s GoFundMe Raises Over $5.5M in 3 Days to Build The Wall
  President trump On Border Wall & "Democrat Shutdown" At the First Step Act Bill Signing. President Trump on Friday scoffed at reports that Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) may be mulling a White House run in 2020. “I thought you were supposed to win before you run for president,” Trump told reporters after meeting with Republican senators to negotiate a government funding bill. The president was congratulating Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for his victory over O'Rourke, though the campaign was much more competitive than expected. President Donald Trump is standing by his border sec. demand after some public pressure over the spending bill. Despite his comments last week, Trump is now saying Democrats will be to blame for a shutdown if it happens, and he has publicly encouraged Mitch McConnell to pursue the nuc.. option. “It’s really up to the Democrats. Totally up to the Democrats as to whether or not we have the shutdown,” he said in comments to reporters today. “It’s possible that we’ll have a shutdown. I would say the chances are probably very good because I don’t think Democrats care so much about maybe this issue, but this is a very big issue.”At issue is $5 Billion in funding the White House is requesting for a border wall that was so central to his run for president. A promise made, but thus far not a promise kept. After publicly taking credit for a looming government shutdown in a very public Oval Office spat with Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), President Trump once again tried to blame the Congressional Democrats for shutting down the government. “We need border sec. and the Republicans and the Senate as you know are taking it up today,” Trump said, adding “It’s really up to the Democrats.” He then added, “Totally up to the Democrats as to whether or not we have the shutdown.” Later he offered ” I don’t think Democrats care so much about this issue,” and “It’s up to the Democrats.” He also said, “It’s really the Democrat shut down,” and later, “Now it’s up to the Democrats as to whether or not we have a shutdown tonight.”
 House Approves $5.7 Billion for Trump's Border Wall. Now Goes to Senate. Cloture?

 Americans – by the tens of thousands – take border security matters into their own hands

A GoFundMe campaign started by a Purple Heart recipient has accumulated over $5.5 million in donations going toward building a wall on the southern U.S. border with Mexico.

The “We The People Will Fund the Wall” campaign is making headlines across the country as more and more Americans donate to help reach $1 billion, which triple-amputee veteran Brian Kolfage says will “100%” go toward funding President Trump’s long-promised border wall.
“We have contacted the Trump Administration to secure a point of contact where all the funds will go upon completion. When we get this information secured we will update. We have many very high level contacts already helping,” Kolfage explains in his GoFundMe post.
“The government has accepted large private donations before, most recently a billionaire donated $7.5 Million to fund half of the Washington Monument repairs in 2012; this is no different,” says Kolfage, who lost his limbs during an Operation Iraqi Freedom mission in 2004.

If the goal is not reached, Kolfage says all money will be refunded: “If we don’t reach our goal or come significantly close we will refund every single penny. We are working on a time frame to achieve.”
The viral campaign has been shared over one million times.
The grassroots effort comes as President Trump vows to keep grappling with Democrats and RINOs in Congress to secure funding for the wall, with many supporters urging him to veto any year-end spending package that does not include wall funding.

When I begrudgingly signed the Omnibus Bill, I was promised the Wall and Border Security by leadership. Would be done by end of year (NOW). It didn’t happen! We foolishly fight for Border Security for other countries - but not for our beloved U.S.A. Not good!

The Democrats, who know Steel Slats (Wall) are necessary for Border Security, are putting politics over Country. What they are just beginning to realize is that I will not sign any of their legislation, including infrastructure, unless it has perfect Border Security. U.S.A. WINS!
