    (full article title: 'Survivor' Castaway Zeke Smith Outed as Transgender by Fellow Contestant Jeff Varner During Tribal Council) Zeke Smith is trying to make the best of the situation. The two-time Survivor player was outed as transgender by fellow tribe member Jeff Varner during tribal council on Wednesday's episode of Game Changers. Varner, who told host Jeff Probst that he felt he was going home earlier in the tribal council, decided to reveal one last piece of information in the hopes of saving himself. "There is deception here. Deceptions on levels, Jeff, that these guys don't even understand," Varner said,...

    Survivor: Game Changers — Mamanuca Islands is the 34th season of Survivor (for those unfamiliar with the show, there are two seasons each year). It begins Wednesday, March 8, 2017 on CBS at 8/7c with a special two hour episode. References: Official Survivor site at CBSWikipedia article There will be twenty returning players divided into two tribes of ten players each. The "Game Changers" theme as with some past themes, is of course utterly contrived. Apparently the original plan called for three teams consisting of (1) winners, (2) those who made the jury, and (3) those who were booted prior...

    HONOLULU -- He walked slowly, an entourage of help ensuring he didn't slip. People in the bar clapped as he moved past. Then Lauren Bruner gave up his cane and settled at a table against the wall where his picture had been hanging for years. Dwight Lockwood, reed-thin in shorts and flip-flops, darted behind the bar and quickly popped the cap off a Kona Longboard beer. "It's his favorite," he said. The drink was on the house, of course. Bruner took a swig. Around him, dozens of people waited to shake his hand, share a story or take a picture....

    Kimberly Corban, who as a college student in 2006 was sexually assaulted and subsequently became a gun owner and passionate defender of gun rights, told a forum at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) that as “a survivor of rape … I want my right to choose how to defend myself,” and that is “with a firearm.” Back in January, Kim Corban was at President Barack Obama’s townhall discussion on gun control, and told Obama that she has a responsibility to protect her children and herself with a “firearm of my choosing” and to carry it with her.

    I’ve never been interested in the survivor type programs, including Donald Trump’s sophisticated program “The Apprentice“, but am familiar with the basic way they work. “The Apprentice” provides the best model for choosing a president, but the political parties should also consider the process of “voting people off the island”. On the basic “Survivor” programs contestants are divided into tribes and work together to survive in a wilderness setting. They conduct periodic votes in which individuals are gradually “voted off the island” until only one remains. On “The Apprentice” contestants are assigned business related tasks. Donald Trump, or comparable people...

    2.6k1776 During today’s Congressional hearing over Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted babies and their body parts, pro-life advocate Melissa Ohden, an abortion survivor, told Congress that Planned Parenthood would have killed her if given the chance. The LifeNews writer said there are many other abortion survivors like her who are speaking up against abortion. Today was the first hearing in Congress’ multi-committee investigation of the Planned Parenthood abortion business after a series of nine videos exposed how it is potentially illegally selling aborted babies and profiting from the sales. “I’m here today to share my story to not only highlight...

    Kim Davis walked out to Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” when she was released from jail Tuesday. A judge ruled that Davis should be released from jail as long as she doesn’t interfere with the licenses that her deputies have been granting. However, she infringed upon Survivor’s rights when she played the 1982 rock classic as she walked on stage to give a speech. Record label EMI has considered suing Davis, as well as her supporter Mike Huckabee, for publicly playing the song without permission. “They are well within their rights to hold a public rally in support of Kim...

    For the eighth time, Bataan Death March survivor Col. Ben Skardon finished his 8.5-mile memorial trek through a course at White Sands Missile Range, N.M. Skardon, 97, was flanked by more than thirty supporters from "Ben's Brigade," a group of friends and family who have marched with him in past memorial marches. They wore Clemson University orange in honor of Skardon's alma mater. At one point, Skardon showed off his class ring from 1938, which he kept hidden from his Japanese captors. The infamous march saw tens of thousands American and Filipino soldiers taken as prisoners of war by Japanese...
