    A Spanish transsexual beauty queen has said that winning this year's Miss Universe would be a victory 'for human rights' as some bookmakers today made her the favourite. Angela Ponce, 27, from Seville, is in Bangkok, Thailand, where she hopes to become the first transgender woman to win the pageant. Some online bookmakers have made her the odds-on front-runner for the contest on December 17, according to The Blast.

    Phil Zodhiates has been a friend and mentor to many conservative non-profits throughout America. It was he who helped make Col. Allen West's election to Congress in 2010 possible, as was the case with many other conservative candidates. Phil saved a child from terrible abuse and gave a ride to the child's mother from Virginia to Buffalo, NY. For this he has been ordered to report to federal prison tomorrow, with a three year sentence. May G-d Almighty make a miracle for him and free him. The entire story is sickening. It is also a prime example of how hedonism...

    Television producer Ryan Murphy is announcing a multimillion-dollar initiative to help elect pro-LGBTQ candidates and vote out anti-LGBTQ incumbents. Murphy, the producer behind hit shows “Glee,” “American Horror Story” and “Pose,” announced the project while accepting an award at the TrevorLive gala, according to NextNowNext. The new organization, which he said he will launch in 2020, is named “Pose Gives Back,” a nod to his latest television project, which has more transgender series regulars than any other show in history. “I’m going to create and fund, with corporate sponsorship, a multimillion-dollar organization that targets anti-LGBTQ candidates running for office,” Murphy...
  • Cosmic Airburst May Have Wiped Out Part of the Middle East 3,700 Years Ago

    The airburst "in an instant, devastated approximately 500 km2 [about 200 square miles] immediately north of the Dead Sea, not only wiping out 100 percent of the [cities] and towns, but also stripping agricultural soils from once-fertile fields and covering the eastern Middle Ghor with a super-heated brine of Dead Sea anhydride salts pushed over the landscape by the event's frontal shock waves," the researchers wrote in the abstract for a paper that was presented at the American Schools of Oriental Research annual meeting held in Denver Nov. 14 to 17.

  • My New Vagina Won’t Make Me Happy

    New York Times ^ | November 24, 2018 | Andrea Long Chu
    Next Thursday, I will get a vagina. The procedure will last around six hours, and I will be in recovery for at least three months. Until the day I die, my body will regard the vagina as a wound; as a result, it will require regular, painful attention to maintain. This is what I want, but there is no guarantee it will make me happier. In fact, I don’t expect it to. That shouldn’t disqualify me from getting it. I like to say that being trans is the second-worst thing that ever happened to me. (The worst was being born...

    Roughly 80 LGBT caravan riders traveling from Central America to the United States broke away from the main group and headed towards Tijuana separately. When they got to Tijuana, officiants from the Unitarian Universalist delegation on Saturday threw a mass wedding where at least seven LGBT couples wed, The Hill reported. Baja California, where Tijuana is located, is one of a handful of states that recognizes same-sex marriages in Mexico. “This is really a dream come true, because you don’t see this in our home countries and this is something that we’ve always wanted to do, and today we had the opportunity...

    The 92nd Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade proved to be historic not only for its chilly weather but also because it showcased the parade's first same-sex kiss to be televised. During a performance of Broadway's new musical 'The Prom', actresses Caitlin Kinnunen and Isabelle McCalla kissed on the live NBC broadcast. The moment is also said to have been the first same-sex kiss to have been broadcast during the Macy's holiday event.

    A Christian mother is threatening to sue a primary school after it hosted an equality event she claims promoted LGBT lifestyles. Izoduwa Adhedo says her son was forced to attend the 'Proud to be Me' day at Heavers Farm School in South Norwood, London, which she described as 'against our religious beliefs'. The school rejected her claim they organised a 'gay pride parade' and said support for the anti-homophobia event vastly outweighed any criticism.

    There’s a language fight brewing with the LGBT lobby over the new trilateral agreement, and — what a surprise — it looks like far-left Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is behind it. The Hill reports that a group of 38 GOP lawmakers has sent a letter to President Trump over proposed trade deal language meant to prevent sex discrimination. The problem is that the language equates “sexual orientation and gender identity” (SOGI) with sex. “A trade agreement is no place for the adoption of social policy,” congressmen explained in a the letter dated November 16. “It is especially inappropriate and...

    Shortly after moving back onto campus in August, Emily Scheck saw that she had several text messages from her mom. The sophomore, a cross-country runner for Canisius College in Buffalo, New York, looked down in horror. She was getting disavowed by her mother for being a lesbian. Her mother had found photos on social media of Scheck with the woman she is dating and was apoplectic. Scheck had not come out to her parents, as she feared they wouldn't accept her sexual preference, according to the Griffin, the Canisius student newspaper. As first reported by the LGBT sports website Outsports,...

    On June 26, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court made same-sex marriage legal across the U.S., declaring that refusing to do so would violate the Constitution. Shortly after the high court’s landmark decision, the Obama administration celebrated by lighting the White House in rainbow colors. Now, more than three years after that historic Obergefell v. Hodges ruling, former first lady Michelle Obama revealed that she and her daughter Malia, then 16, snuck out of the White House that night to join in on the fun happening outside their residence. Obama also recounted the story in her appearance Thursday on “The Ellen...

    An iconic 1972 painting by British artist David Hockney soared to $90.3million at Christie's on Thursday, smashing the record for the highest price ever paid at auction for a work by a living artist. With Christie's commission, Portrait of an Artist (Pool with Two Figures), surpassed the auction house's pre-sale estimate of about $80million, following a bidding war between two determined would-be buyers once the work hit $70million. The previous record for a work by a living artist was held by Jeff Koons' sculpture Balloon Dog, which sold for $58.4million in 2013. Hockney's previous auction record was $28.4million.

    Since his election and installation in March 2013 as Pope Francis of the Roman Catholic Church, we now have sufficient evidence from Jorge Bergoglio’s words and deeds to raise serious questions as to whether this pope is Catholic or even Christian: 1- To begin, a legitimate case has been made that Bergoglio’s election as pope was illicit, being contaminated by lobbying in violation of papal law. 2- Bishops, cardinals and archbishops who are Bergoglio’s allies are flagrant homosexuals and pedophiles. See “Pope Francis’ Vatican: a cesspool of pedophiles and homosexuals” and “Catholic Church in Crisis: Pedophile cardinal; Pennsylvania priests abused...
