Mike Rowe’s Thoughts on the Florida Shooting Are the Best You Will Hear From Anyone

Mike Rowe shared his thoughts on the recent tragedy at Stoneman Douglas High School, and it will blow anything the establishment media has to say out of the water.

Rowe wrote on Facebook, “Evil is real. As long as humans have walked the earth, people have chosen to do evil things. This is what happened in Florida. A nineteen-year old man chose to do an evil thing. He planned it. He executed it. He succeeded.”

Rowe also said that while it’s important to find out the contributing causes of mass shooters, we shouldn’t absolve the killer of responsibility for his actions.

“Should we endeavor to know why? Absolutely. Should we discuss the impact of video games, accessible firearms, single-parents, no parents, powerful medications, social media, mental illness, bullying, or anything else we think might have encouraged him to choose evil over good? Without question.”

“But we should also stop confusing the influence of such things, with the root cause. Because nothing in this man’s past can possibly explain his decision to kill seventeen people,” Rowe added.

Father of Florida School Shooting Victim Harassed on Twitter for ‘Trump 2020’ Shirt

The father of a Florida school shooting victim was lambasted on Twitter after he was photographed wearing a “Trump 2020” shirt while he searched for his daughter, whom he later found out had died in the bloodbath.

Andrew Pollack was first pictured last Wednesday as he frantically searched for his daughter, Meadow, hours after gunman Nikolas Cruz opened fire Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Pollack found out the next day that his 18-year-old daughter had died.

But when a photo of him wearing the “Trump 2020” shirt began circulating on Twitter, several people spewed hateful comments about the grieving father, with no show of remorse.

Other people said they felt “empathy” for Meadow Pollack dying, but turned on the father for voting for Trump. One user said Andrew Pollack should have “thought twice” before casting his vote during the 2016 election . . .

Despite the hateful comments, many users also expressed their condolences and condemned others for politicizing a woman’s death. Some said they were “heartbroken” by the loss and urged people on social media to support Pollack during the difficult time.

Parents Lose Custody of Child for Refusing to Support Transgenderism

On Friday, Ohio parents were denied custody of their daughter for not being supportive enough of her alleged transgenderism.

The 17-year-old biologically female child identifies as a boy and claims she has suicidal thoughts over her parents’ lack of support for her transgenderism (they won’t, for example, call her by her new chosen male name). The parents were fighting for custody of their daughter back from the state in an effort to stop potential transgender hormone treatment.

An attorney representing the parents, whose names have not been disclosed because of privacy concerns, argued that the girl was not “even close to being able to make such a life-altering decision at this time.” Representatives of the girl argued that a “medical team” claimed that the treatment was a matter of life and death.

Hamilton County Judge Sylvia Sieve Hendon granted custody to the girl’s maternal grandparents, who are open to transgender hormone therapy. The teenager has been living with them since 2016.

According to CNN, Hendon also granted the grandparents the option to petition to change the teen’s name to her new male name in probate court. The girl is now covered by their insurance. (Read more from “Parents Lose Custody of Child for Refusing to Support Transgenderism” HERE)

Here’s the Secret to Living Past 90

. . .Eating a healthier diet, regularly practising yoga in a peaceful park, visiting exotic hot springs to cleanse your body… people have tried all sorts of things to ensure longevity.

However, a study has discovered that the key to reaching past the age of 90 could all come down to drinking a couple of glasses of alcohol a night and putting on a few extra pounds.

Dr Claudia Kawas, a specialist in neurology from the University of California, spoke at the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual conference in Austin, Texas about research that she has carried out for the past 15 years.

She and her team began The 90+ Study in 2003 in order to investigate the reasons why some people reach the age of 90 and beyond and others don’t . . .

They discovered that those who consumed approximately two glasses of beer or wine a day were 18 per cent less likely to experience a premature death. (Read more from “Here’s the Secret to Living Past 90” HERE)

MeToo Lawmaker Had Sex With Colleagues to Get Information

Outspoken #MeToo campaigner Cristina Garcia – a California assemblywoman who captured national media attention as a “silence breaker” in the movement – reportedly told her staffers that having sex with elected officials “was a good way of getting information” from them.

Garcia, chairwoman of the Legislative Women’s Caucus, is also accused of groping a staffer and a lobbyist, hosting a game of “Spin the Bottle” and demanding that staffers drink alcohol and go to happy hour with her.

Four of Garcia’s former staffers said she “spoke graphically” about romps with other lawmakers in their offices, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

The staffers wouldn’t say which lawmakers slept with Garcia “out of respect for their privacy,” their lawyer, Daniel Gilleon, wrote in a letter to the Assembly Rules Committee.

The staffers themselves haven’t been named, either. Gilleon said revealing their identities might hurt their chances of obtaining jobs in the Legislature again. (Read more from “MeToo Lawmaker Had Sex With Colleagues to Get Information” HERE)

A Public School Is Telling 6th Grade Girls They Can’t Say No to Boys Who Ask Them to Dance

As the conversation around “consent” continues to circulate worldwide, one Utah school is facing backlash over their recent message to 6th-grade girls: just say “yes.”

Natalie Richard’s sixth-grade daughter was one of the many students who came home inquiring about the rules of her school, Kanesville Elementary’s, Valentine’s Day dance.

That rule, the girl said, was that she couldn’t say “no” if a boy asked her to dance.

“Oh no, no honey,” Richard said to her daughter, thinking it was confusion or a simple rumor. “You guys are misunderstanding again. That’s not how it is.”

After speaking to her daughter’s teacher, however, the nightmare of truth came forward and Richard realized her daughter was correct.

“The teacher said she can’t,” Richard told Fox 13. “She has to say yes. She has to accept and I said, ‘Excuse me?’”

Taking her concerns to the school principal, Richard pressed for answers but received none that settled the unease forming within.

“He basically just said they’ve had this dance set up this way for a long time and they’ve never had any concern before,” she said.

The Weber School District later confirmed it was a rule and that it aimed not at breaching consent, but at inclusivity — the school itself did not seem to realize there is a time and place for each.

“Please be respectful, be polite,” said Lan Findlay who works with the school district. “We want to promote kindness, and so we want you to say yes when someone asks you to dance.”

And though Richard admits that she understands why they would want to adopt the policy of inclusivity, a school dance where girls are ordered to dance with boys they’d rather stay away from “sends a bad message to girls that girls have to say ‘yes’” and “sends a bad message to boys that girls can’t say ‘no.’”

Prior to the voluntary sweetheart dance, students are told to fill out a card by selecting five people they’d like to dance with, and if there is someone on the card they feel uncomfortable with, the student is encouraged to speak up.

And the dancer selections are split in half, part of the choosing going to the girls and the other half to the boys — all of whom are not allowed to dance with the same person more than once.

“If there is an issue, if there’s students that are uncomfortable or have a problem with another student, I mean: that’s certainly something that can be addressed with that student and parents,” Findlay said.

However, Richard holds firm to the notion that rejection is just another part of life that students are going to have to learn to deal with, and that the policy is sending the wrong impression when everything is said and done.

“Psychologically, my daughter keeps coming to me and saying I can’t say ‘no’ to a boy,” she said. “That’s the message kids are getting.”

And Richard’s is not alone, as other parents have taken to social media to call out the school’s policy.

“Respectfully decline to dance … Children should learn to say ‘no thanks’ in uncomfortable situations,” wrote one parent.

“Girls should not have to feel obligated to say yes to anyone. Especially when it involves physical contact,” wrote another. “I would rather keep my daughter home instead of making that environment acceptable.”

As the policy sparked outrage from parent’s and others nation-wide, the school admitted that it will rescind the formal rule and rethink its strategy — leaving their student’s to simply say “no.”

“In the best interest of our students, we are re-examining the procedures surrounding these dances and will make any necessary changes to promote a positive environment where all students feel included and empowered in their choices,” the school’s statement said.

“We have advised our schools to eliminate any sort of language in the instructions surrounding these dances that would suggest a student must dance with another student.” (For more from the author of “A Public School Is Telling 6th Grade Girls They Can’t Say No to Boys Who Ask Them to Dance” please click HERE)

Video: Abortionists Claim Christian Faith Inspires Murder of Unborn Babies

Lent began Wednesday, a time of contemplation and religious seriousness for most Christians, but that’s not stopping a trio of abortionists who say it’s the Christian faith that inspires them to perform abortions.

“I became morally convinced that is was not a conflict of my Christian values to provide abortion care, and in fact it became unethical to me not to do so,” said Christian abortionist Willie Parker.

He recently published a memoir, “Life’s Work: A Moral Argument for Choice,” in which he wrote, “I believe that as an abortion provider, I am doing God’s work.”

He claims he is protecting women’s rights, their human right to decide their futures for themselves, and to live their lives as they see fit according to The New York Times.

Sarah Wallett, the medical director at Planned Parenthood Greater Memphis, has been outspoken about the Christian faith inspiring her work.

“I can imagine no person who is in greater need of Christlike love and excellent medical care than a woman who is faced with an untenable pregnancy, and I am grateful every day to feel thy spirit and thy guiding hand on my work,” Wallett said.

“I think part of changing the conversation around all aspects of reproductive health care is having open, honest conversations about it,” Wallett added, according to the Memphis Daily News. “I hope to be able to provide accurate medical facts about this kind of care as well as compassionate, non-judgmental care for my patients.”

Leroy Carhart, who performs abortions at the new late-term abortion facility in Bethesda, Maryland posits that there is no contradiction between religious faith and performing abortions into the final weeks of pregnancy.

“Those of us committed to reproductive freedom cannot rest while anti-abortion extremists work overtime to rob women of their health, lives and autonomy,” Carhart said in a media release after the clinic opened.

“How can they fail to see the contradiction between taking the lives of unborn children, and claiming faith in Christ, who entered the world as a child in the womb?” executive director of the Pro-Life Action League Eric Scheidler asks according to a media release sent to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Scheidler encourages pro-lifers to say a prayer for the abortionists in hopes that might fight a life-affirming path.

“If we, who fear and love God, won’t pray for these abortionists to repent and seek forgiveness for the lives they’ve participated in destroying, then who will?” Scheidler asks.

North Carolina Mother Thrown in Jail for Having Her Daughter Baptized in Catholic Church

A North Carolina judge threw a mother in jail for seven days for having her daughter baptized without the father’s presence and consent.

Kendra Stocks of Charlotte, N.C. will report to jail Friday to begin her seven-day sentence after District Court Judge Sean Smith ruled in March 2017 that she acted in “bad-faith disregard” and was therefore in contempt of court for having her daughter baptized without consulting Paul Schaaf, the child’s father, according to Fox8.

Stocks’ sentence is based on a previous custody battle between her and Schaaf, to whom the court gave final authority on all legal decisions regarding the child, including decisions about religion, according to WSOC.

Schaaf and Stocks fought a custody battle over their daughter two years ago. The couple allegedly could never agree on religion, so the judge granted Schaaf full custody of the child, “specifically including decisions concerning religion” in 2016.

Both Schaaf and Stocks are practicing Catholics and both wanted their daughter to be baptized.

The source of their initial disagreement that delayed their daughter’s baptism remains unclear.

The judge warned both parents that if either of them breached the terms of the custody decision they could be fined or sentenced to jail.

Stocks evidently ignored the warning and took her daughter to be baptized the very next day. Schaaf found out about the baptism via Facebook.

“The mother has acted selfishly by depriving the father of the ability to be present at an event that was extraordinarily important to him,” court documents read, according to WSOC.

Stocks appealed the judge’s ruling, but a superior court upheld the ruling on Feb. 12.

“I’m scared,” Stocks told The Charlotte Observer. “I’m sad about what has happened. I don’t regret having her baptized. That was in her best interest … I don’t see how this is in the best interest of the family. Her father is sending her mother to jail.”

Nadia Margherio, Stocks’ attorney, argued that Stocks had not violated the judge’s decision since both parents had expressed a desire to have their daughter baptized and the judge had not explicitly stated that one parent must notify another about a baptism.

The judge remained unconvinced, given court records that showed he had repeatedly asked Stocks whether she understood his order.

Stocks said that both sides of the family attended the baptism, with Schaaf’s brother even attending as the child’s godfather. Stock’s said she had no idea why Schaaf did not know or did not remember the child’s baptism was scheduled for that day.

“He did not know because nobody told him,” Schaaf’s lawyer, Jonathan Feit, said according to the Observer.

Feit argued that Stocks was not being jailed for baptizing her daughter, but for ignoring the judge’s order.

Blacks, Hispanics Sue Over Diversity Set Aside for Whites

A lawsuit has been filed by parents of Hartford, Connecticut, school children charging it’s unfair to limit the black and Hispanic enrollment of much-desired magnet schools to 75 percent of the student population.

The case was brought by Pacific Legal Foundation on behalf of nine Hartford parents against the state Department of Education’s race-based enrollment quotas and lottery.

PLF explains the magnet schools offer special instruction and opportunities and attract a diverse student body. They are described as far outpacing traditional public schools “in terms of student achievement.”

As a result, places in their classrooms are highly sought by students and parents.

But a quota system set up following a state Supreme Court ruling in 1996 that found unconstitutional de facto segregation in Hartford’s schools is creating issues. (Read more from “Blacks, Hispanics Sue Over Diversity Set Aside for Whites” HERE)
