Rebecca Kiessling of Save the 1, who was conceived in rape and now is a voice against killing children for the crimes of their fathers, lamented the president’s post, writing on social media, “There’s nothing quite like getting singled out for death by your president.”
(Heather Clark – Christian News Network) Amid a number of states considering bills this legislative season surrounding concerns over the ongoing murder of unborn children, President Trump posted a series of tweets on Saturday evening in which he reiterated that he identifies as pro-life, but believes in the exceptions of rape, incest and the life of the mother.

Wallnau used the classic “us against them” selling tactic, saying “That’s why we’ve got to pray, because they think we’re crazy. But we’re actually the sane ones so we’re praying.”
(Blake Alsup – New York Daily News) For only $45 you can establish a “point of contact” with God via a gold-plated coin engraved with President Trump and King Cyrus’ faces — according to the “Jim Bakker Show” at least.
The coin is being peddled by Lance Wallnau, who claims God told him people need it to pray for Trump. Continue reading
“According to Greg Baylor of Alliance Defending Freedom, the Equality Act is also set to repeal the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993, a bill that was signed into law by Democratic President Bill Clinton. This means that people will no longer be able to use religious free exercise as a defense for their actions. For example, if a church declines to allow a gay couple from holding their wedding in their church because it goes against your religious beliefs, the church could be subjected to legal action.”
(Kayla Koslosky – Christian Headlines) The ill-named Equality Act is making its way back through Congress this year. The act, which is being painted as a pro-LGBT law, is coming across to many people of faith as an anti-religious freedom law. Continue reading
“When women are in control of their sexuality, it threatens a core element underpinning right-wing ideology: patriarchy. It’s a brutal form of oppression to seize control of the one essential thing a person should command: their own body.”
(Wayne Dupree – LifeZette) Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) ran to Twitter to deliver her response to the signing by Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey — a Republican — of the most restrictive reproductive legislation since 1973.

Hannity noted that former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova told Fox Business last week that Horowitz “has concluded that the final three FISA extensions were illegally obtained” and that new disclosures from an open-records request indicate that “all four FISAs will have been obtained illegally.”
(James Barrett – Daily Wire) Conservative commentator Sean Hannity said on his Fox News program Wednesday night that his sources say the Justice Department inspector general’s investigation into abuse by the FBI of FISA warrants to surveil the Trump campaign is “done” — and “it’s devastating.”….

“What I do think we need to be talking about as a society though is how do we ensure that young women and young families are thinking a career doesn’t mean that I shouldn’t be able to have a family.”
(Anna Hopkins – Fox News) In response to new statistics revealing the United States has hit its lowest birth rate in 32 years, Independent Women’s Forum senior policy analyst Patrice Onwuka argued that rhetoric from the political left is contributing to women rethinking the decision to have children.

“Although the Alabama State House voted to pass the bill last month, 74-3, Democratic lawmakers pressed Tuesday, unsuccessfully, for amendments that would create exceptions in instances of rape and incest.”
(Vandana Rambaran – Fox News) Alabama’s state Senate passed a controversial bill on Tuesday that would outlaw nearly all abortions in the state and make performing one a felony unless the mother’s health is at risk.
The bill will make the punishment for performing abortions up to 99 years or life in prison, although the woman who received one will not be subject to a felony charge. Continue reading
Transgender weightlifter Mary Gregory
“On the basis of all information presented to the Board of Directors for this particular case, the conclusion made, is that the correct physiological classification is male.”
(Craig Banister – CNSNews) A biological male competing as a female weightlifter has been stripped of four world records, the 100% Raw Powerlifting Federation (100% RAW) has announced.
Transgender athlete Mary Gregory had not sufficiently transitioned into a biological female, 100% RAW declared in a post on its website: Continue reading
Ostensibly for this reason, Blanchard took a nuanced, scientific approach. “The sex of a postoperative transsexual should be analogous to a legal fiction. His legal fiction would apply to some things (e.g., sex designation on a driver’s license) but not to others (entering a sports competition as one’s adopted sex).”
(Tyler O’Neil – PJ Media) See the update at the end of the article – In the early hours of Sunday morning, an expert Ph.D. psychologist who helped write the official psychological position on transgender identity was blocked on Twitter for expressing his opinion informed by clinical experience. His well-reasoned position was flagged for “hateful conduct.” Continue reading

(Matt Margolis – PJ Media) Chris Hughes, the Harvard roommate of and co-founder of Facebook with Mark Zuckerberg, writes in a piece for the New York Times that “it is time to break up Facebook.”
“America was built on the idea that power should not be concentrated in any one person, because we are all fallible,” writes Hughes. “That’s why the founders created a system of checks and balances.” …. Continue reading
Two days prior to the video, in response to Live Action sharing the footage of his harassment of an elderly woman, Sims wrote, “Bring it, Bible Bullies! You are bigots, sexists, and misogynists and I see right through your fake morals and your broken values.”
(Heather Clark – Christian News Network) Democratic Pennsylvania Rep.

“Two weeks ago, the Trump administration officially labeled the Iranian Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization.”
(Katie Pavlich – Townhall) White House National Security Advisor John Bolton announced in a statement late Sunday night the United States is moving military assets to combat aggression by Iran.
“In response to a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings, the United States is deploying the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force to the U.S. Central Command region to send a clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime that any attack on United States interests or on those of our allies will be met with unrelenting force,” Bolton said.

“The death of someone who lived the life of an apostate is sobering, never joyful to anyone who knows the truth of judgment for those outside the Lord. Though there are many who teach falsely in the world, some who anger me, some who puzzle me, there are some, like Rachel, that the Lord inexplicably put on my heart as if she was a close family member wandering from the fold. I cried real tears when I wrote my Open Letter to her 6 years ago, I cried real tears in Mid-April when I learned she was in dire medical condition, and I cried sorrowful grief-ridden tears over her death when I learned of it this morning.”
(Elizabeth Prata) Columnist, author, mother of two, Evans had been in a medically induced coma since April 19, 2019. According to updates provided by her husband of 16 years, Dan, during treatment for an infection Rachel began exhibiting unexpected symptoms.

“That Facebook is dispensing with its previous excuses shows that the social network has become emboldened to regulate the flow of news on its platform, knowing that no consequences are headed its way from Republicans on Capitol Hill or in the White House.”
(Allum Bokhari – Breitbart) The banning of multiple political commentators from Facebook and Instagram, including conservatives Paul Joseph Watson and Laura Loomer, is an outrage against the ideals of an open Internet on its own. But beyond the bans on individuals, Facebook has deployed an even more terrifying tool of censorship — link-banning. Continue reading
“Flood took issue with the analysis that Mueller intentionally didn’t issue a conclusion on obstruction, but rather decided to provide information about his investigation so Congress could decide whether to take action, like impeachment.”
(Judson Berger & Gregg Re – Fox News) The White House tore into Robert Mueller and his investigators in a recent letter to Attorney General Bill Barr that argued the special counsel’s team included “political statements” in their Russia report and “failed” to act as traditional prosecutors — while stating President Trump reserves his right to invoke executive privilege on matters related to the report.

“The Partner study has given us the confidence to say, without doubt, that people living with HIV who are on effective treatment cannot pass the virus on to their sexual partners. This has incredible impact on the lives of people living with HIV and is a powerful message to address HIV-related stigma.”
(The Guardian) An end to the Aids epidemic could be in sight after a landmark study found men whose HIV infection was fully suppressed by antiretroviral drugs had no chance of infecting their partner. Continue reading

“The Democrats’ pro-transgender law would prevent women from excluding men who say they are women from women’s showers, homeless shelters, prisons, and civic groups. The law also would prevent women from excluding men from women’s civic competitions for athletic awards, education scholarships, professional accomplishments or style status.”
(Neil Munro – Breitbart) The Democratic Party’s pro-transgender “Equality Act” would wreck women’s sports, says a Washington Post article by three liberal women, including former tennis champ Martina Navratilova. Continue reading

Reiss downplayed the idea that the results could be the result of human error. He said that the “mismatch” between the two rates “has been growing and has now reached a point that is really impossible to dismiss as a fluke. This is not what we expected.”
(Sinéad Baker – Business Insider) The universe is younger and expanding faster than we thought, a new study found, scientists think we may have to work on new physics as a result.
A new study lead by Nobel Prize-winning scientist, Adam Riess, found that the universe is expanding 9% faster than previous calculations that were based on studying the aftermath of the Big Bang. Continue reading
“While some have been opposed to Pence in claiming that he is anti-homosexual — from Pete Buttigieg to Lady Gaga — Pence defended the Trump administration in February 2017 in its decision to retain an Obama-era order banning groups that contract with the federal government from “discriminating” against homosexuals and transgenders in their business or non-profit organization.”
(Heather Clark – Christian News Network) U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, who is openly homosexual, told reporters this past week that Vice President Mike Pence is “on board” with his plan to urge nations worldwide to decriminalize homosexuality. Continue reading
Sri Lankan church after bombing.

“I find the virgin birth a bizarre claim. It has nothing to do with Jesus’ message. The virgin birth only becomes important if you have a theology in which sexuality is considered sinful. It also promotes this notion that the pure, untouched female body is the best body, and that idea has led to centuries of oppressing women.”
(Michael Foust – Christian Headlines) The president of a seminary founded in 1836 on the “infallible” Word of God says in a new interview she doesn’t believe in the bodily resurrection of Christ, the power of prayer, a literal heaven, or miracles. Continue reading
The campaign to legalize pedophilia is gaining momentum. “Sexual orientation” is a legally protected category in many states. Defining pedophilia and pederasty as a “sexual orientation” has alarming implications. We must not forget that if pedophiles simply have a different orientation, what follows is that child rapists will become a protected class. The American people must stop this from happening. Freedom Project reveals what’s going on in California schools and include a short video of a concerned parent and the Assistant Superintendent of Curricula.
(Alex Newman – Freedom Project) Government school officials in California think it is “really important” to teach children about pedophilia and pederasty in the classroom because it is a “sexual orientation.”… Continue reading
