Actor Praises Trump for Supporting Black Agenda

Actor Isaiah Washington, who previously starred on “Grey’s Anatomy,” praised President Donald Trump for supporting the black agenda last week and slammed former President Barack Obama for not.

“Washington was at the White House to see the celebrate a prison reform bill, the First Step Act, which is focused on inmate rehabilitation,” The Daily Mail reported. “Congress passed legislation last year called the First Step Act that gives judges more discretion when sentencing some drug offenders and boosts prisoner rehabilitation efforts.”

“I voted for 44 twice. I even checked my emails in his Senate Office while lobbying for Salone to be given another chance to rebrand,” Washington tweeted. “Not once in 8 years was I given any support regarding Africa or the Black Agenda, but 45 invites me to the WH to celebrate the #FirstStepAct”

Family of 8 Died in Murder-Suicide After Lesbians Drove Their Children off a Cliff

By The Daily Caller. A California coroner’s jury decided late Thursday that a lesbian couple killed themselves and their six adopted children by driving off a cliff in March 2018.

After a Wednesday coroner’s inquest, the jury found Jennifer and Sarah Hart killed themselves and murdered their family March 26, 2018, when they drove off a cliff in Mendocino County, The Associated Press reported. . .

Authorities opened an investigation into the couple’s alleged mistreatment of their children just days before the fatal crash, sending social workers to the house March 23, according to the AP. The Harts left their home in Woodland, Washington, and drove to northern California, where they died.

Records recovered from Sarah Hart’s phone show deleted searches about suicide, Benadryl dosage methods, and whether drowning is painful, according to California Highway Patrol investigator Jake Slates.

After recovering the family’s bodies, authorities determined Sarah Hart had toxic levels of Benadryl in her body, according to Mendocino County Sheriff Deputy Robert Julian. Jennifer Hart also had a blood alcohol level over the legal driving limit, Slates said. (Read more from “Family of 8 Died in Murder-Suicide After Lesbians Drove Their Children off a Cliff” HERE)

Hart Family of 8 Died by Murder-Suicide in Cliff Crash, Jury Finds

By AP. The deaths drew national attention, partly because the women were alleged to have abused their children. The body of Devonte Hart, 15, who was black and had gained attention when he was photographed in tears while hugging a white police officer during a 2014 protest in Portland, Oregon, has not been recovered.

Jurors were instructed to choose from four manners of death for each of the eight people: natural causes, suicide, accident or an intentional act by another. They sat through nearly two full days of testimony.

“It is my belief that both Jennifer and Sarah succumbed to a lot of pressure,” sheriff’s Lt. Shannon Barney said Thursday. “Just a lot of stuff going on in their lives, to the point where they made this conscious decision to end their lives this way and take their children’s lives.” (Read more from “Hart Family of 8 Died by Murder-Suicide in Cliff Crash, Jury Finds” HERE)

Federal Appeals Court Upholds Law Requiring an Ultrasound Before an Abortion

A federal appeals court upheld a Kentucky law Thursday requiring doctors to conduct an ultrasound, show patients the images, and have women hear the fetal heartbeat at least 24 hours prior to an abortion.

In a 2-1 ruling, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals backed the “Ultrasound Informed Consent Act” which was passed in 2017 and was immediately challenged by the state’s only abortion clinic.

The majority opinion was written by Trump appointee Judge John Bush who cited the U.S. Supreme Court’s rulings in Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey and, more recently, National Institute of Family and Life Advocates v. Becerra.

He argued that the information required by the Kentucky legislation was “truthful, non-misleading, and relevant information about an abortion,” and did not violate a doctor’s free speech rights as the abortion clinic claimed. . .

“Today is a historic day, as Kentucky continues to lead the charge in implementing strong pro-life protections for its citizens,” [Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin] said. “We applaud the decision by the Sixth Circuit, which affirms the commonsense notion that patients should be well equipped with relevant information before making important medical decisions. I am grateful to be governor of a state that values every human life, and we are committed to continue our fight on behalf of the most vulnerable among us.” (Read more from “Federal Appeals Court Upholds Law Requiring an Ultrasound Before an Abortion” HERE)

Man Who Identifies as a Pup Wears a Fur Dog Suit, Barks, Licks, and Bites His Friends

By The Blaze. A British man who identifies as a dog claims he has never felt like a human, the Mirror reported. Kaz James wears a fur dog suit and he eats from a dog bowl. He often barks at, licks, and even bites his friends.

“I didn’t ever feel like a human, I always felt like a dog that was really out of place,” James told the Mirror. “I was known by my friends for saying hello to them by grabbing hold of the collar of their shirt in my teeth and biting or licking them, very canine-type behaviors. It was always how I was.”

The 37-year-old from Salford, Greater Manchester, who works as a store manager, describes himself as a “full-time orange, brown and camo K-9.” . . .

“The first time I heard the term of being a pup was through a pup I met online, he was the first person I met who was like me,” he said. “Through him, I knew other pups and learned a whole new language of this other world that I didn’t know about with a whole bunch of other people who were like me.”

Now, James belongs to an online “pup play” community, which has helped him with his transition from a “part-time pooch to a confident canine,” according to the Mirror. (Read more from “Man Who Identifies as a Pup Wears a Fur Dog Suit, Barks, Licks, and Bites His Friends” HERE)

Man Who ‘Never Felt Human’ Now Lives His Life as a Dog

By The Mirror. Kaz says he always felt like there was something not right with other people when he was around them. . .

Single Kaz said: “I realised that my behaviours were quite dog-like in childhood, probably from the age of six. No-one ever talked about it, it was never mentioned.

“My parents took early retirement and we moved to a farm in Norfolk.

“It wasn’t until the internet arrived in our house that I started chatting to people online – mostly through groups and message boards.

“I was incredibly nervous when I first started talking to people online. I was living with my parents and I would sneak downstairs at three in the morning to get on the internet to look for this stuff. (Read more from “Man Who ‘Never Felt Human’ Now Lives His Life as a Dog” HERE)

Gillette Venus Ad Campaign Features Obese, Trans Models

Gillette’s new Gillette Venus advertisement campaign features morbidly obese women and transgender models. The company claims “ALL types of beautiful skin deserve to be shown,” but it has experienced resistance and widespread mockery on social media.

An advertisement featuring one obese model for the campaign, Anna, was captioned, “Go out there and slay the day.”

“Venus is committed to representing beautiful women of all shapes, sizes, and skin types because ALL types of beautiful skin deserve to be shown,” declared Gillette in a Twitter post. “We love Anna because she lives out loud and loves her skin no matter how the ‘rules’ say she should display it.” . . .

18-year-old transgender activist Jazz Jennings, who is one of the youngest transgender public figures in the world, is also a model for Gillette Venus’ new campaign.

Gillette was also at the center of an advertising controversy in January, after the company released a commercial attacking “toxic masculinity.”

Despite the commercial being widely mocked, receiving over 1.4 million dislikes opposed to just 785,000 likes, and becoming the 20th most disliked YouTube video ever as of February, Gillette parent company Procter & Gamble doubled down on the campaign.

Family Finds Hidden Camera in Airbnb’s Smoke Alarm

By Fox News. A New Zealand family was shocked to find a camera hidden in the smoke alarm of their Airbnb during a vacation in Ireland, which the father of the clan discovered as he was connecting his cell phone to the Wi-Fi.

On April 1, Nealie Barker took to Facebook to share the frightening tale, detailing that she, her husband Andrew and their five children are “avid” Airbnb users who “love” the platform — though the hidden camera spooked them into finding alternative lodging for the duration of their trip.

Barker shared two photos to the social platform, one of the surreptitious smoke alarm and a smiling shot of her kids, which her husband was able to take from the concealed camera. . .

Though the family had paid for the Airbnb in full, the mother felt “immediately protective” of her children being caught on camera and decided that it would be best if they spent the night elsewhere, as per New Zealand Herald. . .

According to the home sharing platform’s official policies, hosts are required to inform guests if there is a surveillance device in or around their property — even if it’s not turned on for use. Cameras are also never permitted in bedrooms, bathroom, or to be hidden. (Read more from “Family Finds Hidden Camera in Airbnb’s Smoke Alarm” HERE)

By Stuff. They had paid in full and were due to stay three days. When her husband, who is an IT consultant, went to connect his phone to the wifi network, he noticed a device called “IP camera”.

“He scanned that device’s ports and found the live video feed. We were all watching ourselves on his mobile phone,” Nealie Barker said.

The camera was found in the lounge, which Barker said had a view of the lounge, dining and kitchen area. . .

“There is no way to know whether the camera was recording. We asked the host but he refused to answer. We also asked if it was recording audio, again he refused to answer.” (Read more from “Family on Holiday Find Hidden Camera in Airbnb” HERE)

Four Democratic Senators Vow to Protect Kittens. Here’s How They Voted Regarding Unborn Children.

As The Washington Free Beacon notes, Senators Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Cory Booker (D-NJ), Gary Peters (D-MI), and Tom Udall (D-NM) co-sponsored the KITTEN Act of 2019, which was introduced on March 7 after it was revealed that between 2003 and 2015, the U.S. government conducted experiments in which scientists euthanized dogs and cats from overseas and fed their remains to laboratory cats for research. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s lab in Maryland reportedly purchased 400 dogs from Colombia, Brazil and Vietnam, and over 100 cats from China and Ethiopia for the research, according to NBC News, which added that not only were dog remains fed to cats but cat remains were injected into mice.

But on February 25, prior to the introduction of the Kitten Act, the Born Alive Abortions Survivors Protection Act came up for a vote before the Senate, which needed 60 votes for cloture in order to proceed, but failed; the vote got 53 yeas and 44 nays. Merkley, Booker, Peters and Udall all voted against cloture.

The Free Beacon quoted Lauren Fine, spokeswoman for Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) saying, “There is nothing more valuable than human life, and as a society we must defend it at every stage. It’s unfathomable that Democrats can find time to defend the lives of kittens, but at the same time are vehemently opposed to even the consideration of legislation designed to protect infants born alive during an abortion from being killed.” . . .

The Free Beacon also quoted a GOP aide in the Senate asserting, “When Democrats want to talk about ending ‘taxpayer-funded kitten slaughter,’ they say it’s just common sense. When millions of pro-life Americans want to end taxpayer subsidies to the nation’s largest abortion business, Democrats rush to call it an extremist agenda.” (Read more from “Four Democratic Senators Vow to Protect Kittens.

Military Providing ‘Sex-Change’ Treatment for Thousands of Minor Dependents

The number of military children receiving transgender-related care within the military health system increased significantly following a Defense Department policy change that gave them access to non-surgical treatment, according to a report published Monday in JAMA Pediatrics.

Between October 2009 and April 2017, 2,533 young people out of the roughly 1.7 million eligible for medical care through the military health system received transgender-associated care, increasing from 135 in all of 2010 to 528 in the first four months of 2017 alone.

In October 2016, the DoD began providing coverage to dependents and military retirees for mental health counseling and hormone therapy for gender dysphoria, the clinical diagnosis for those for whom identifying with their birth gender causes significant distress.

According to the study, the majority of youths seeking transgender treatment under the military health program were born female (65 percent) and the median associated age for gender-related treatment was 17 years old. But roughly a quarter of the children seeking gender-related care were younger than 14.

While the policy went into effect in late 2016, patients previously could seek treatment by requesting a waiver. Under the policy, military medical facilities and Tricare provide hormone treatment and counseling. Surgery is authorized only when deemed medically necessary, such as in cases of ambiguous genitalia.

Transgender McDonalds Employee Claims to Be Victim of Discrimination

By Breitbart. A transgender McDonald’s employee filed a lawsuit against the company claiming to be a victim of repeated instances of discriminatory behavior by colleagues.

Joselyn Kelly, who was hired by McDonald’s this year to work as a supervisor overseeing multiple McDonald’s locations in Mississippi, claimed staffers acted in a discriminatory way after Kelly told McDonald’s franchise owners Elizabeth and Andrew Smith about being transgender, according to documents obtained by the Clarion-Ledger. . .

The suit claimed that Kelly was “forced to resign” over the traumatizing actions of the other employees. Kelly then filed a discrimination charge against the Smiths with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

The EEOC then followed up with Kelly, informing the McDonald’s employee of the right to sue the company. Kelly subsequently filed the suit on March 29 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Mississippi. . .

Other transgender individuals have claimed discrimination against others for not using proper pronouns. A transgender woman shopping at a GameStop claimed to be a victim of hate after a male clerk used the pronoun “sir.” (Read more from “Transgender McDonalds Employee Claims to Be Victim of Discrimination” HERE)
