Can Feds Stop Pro-Lifers From Being Forced to Promote Abortion?

The federal government is being asked to rein in state and local demands that pregnancy centers and others promote abortion, even if they have religious objections to the destruction of unborn children.

The dispute popped up in a number of states after pro-abortion state lawmakers and other regulators decided that everyone must promote abortion and set up a requirement that pregnancy care centers do just that.

But that demand, contends the Alliance Defending Freedom, is unconstitutional.

The organization revealed Tuesday it has filed complaints with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services over the cases in Illinois and Hawaii.

The organization confirmed the federal Church and Weldon amendments do not allow states that receive federal funding “to compel medical personal to operate contrary to their conscience or religious beliefs.” (Read more from “Can Feds Stop Pro-Lifers From Being Forced to Promote Abortion?” HERE)

Seattle’s ‘Gay’ Mayor Resigns After 5th Child-Rape Allegation

For five months, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray rejected calls for his resignation amid allegations he sexually abused teens decades before entering politics.

But Murray couldn’t withstand a devastating new allegation from within his own family.

He announced his resignation Tuesday, hours after news emerged that a younger cousin was publicly accusing Murray of molesting him in New York in the 1970s.

Murray, a former Democratic state legislator elected mayor in 2013, didn’t appear in public to make the announcement. Instead, he issued a statement saying his resignation would be effective 5 p.m. Wednesday. (Read more from “Seattle’s ‘Gay’ Mayor Resigns After 5th Child-Rape Allegation” HERE)

U.S. Judge Tells Christian Churches They Must Cover Abortion in Insurance Plan

A federal judge told three Christian congregations in California that they have no case in wanting to opt out of the state’s requirement that they cover abortions through their health insurance plans.

U.S. District Court Judge Kimberly Mueller upheld a 2014 requirement of the California Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC) that all employers throughout the state must pay for abortion insurance for their employees. She told the three churches that they failed to state an adequate claim.

The churches — Foothill Church in Glendora, Calvary Chapel Chino Hills in Chino, and The Shepherd of the Hills Church in Porter Ranch — sued the state in 2014 after being informed that they could not prohibit or restrict coverage for elective abortions . . .

The DMHC reclassified abortion as “a basic health care service” in 2014 under ObamaCare, making abortion insurance a mandatory provision for all business, regardless of the employer’s sincerely held beliefs.

Children Held Hostage During Disturbing 9/11 Drill by School Official Threatening to Kill Them

In America’s modern-day police state, it seems the state knows no bounds as to how far it will go to keep children and adults in a perpetual state of fear. A recent lawsuit out of Hawaii illustrates the extent of the American fear culture and how its insanity is tormenting and traumatizing America’s youth.

For more than 10 minutes, middle school children were held hostage by a raging lunatic in a mask, swinging a hammer while threatening to kill them all. Naturally, officials claim this drill, involving a school official wearing a mask and holding a hammer while threatening to kill children, was done for the “safety of those children.” Well, Michelle and Eddie Chavez aren’t buying that excuse.

According to a report from Courthouse News, the couple has since filed a federal lawsuit over this incident.

An abusive lockdown drill in which a masked man threatened a middle-school classroom with a hammer left the entire class in tears and at least one girl with post-traumatic stress disorder, her parents say in court.

Michelle and Eddie Chavis sued Hawaii and the state Department of Education on Sept. 7 in First Circuit state Court.

According to the bizarre complaint, their daughter and her class at Kaimuki Middle were watching a video about the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2015. Suddenly, “a man wearing a mask rushed into the classroom swinging a large hammer while threatening the students with serious bodily injury and/or death,” the complaint states.

The complaint continues: “Minor and her classmates were immediately placed in fear for their lives. The masked man then walked out of the classroom with the classroom teacher running out behind the masked man, apparently in pursuit of the masked man. Upon the classroom teacher’s return, the teacher locked the classroom doors and called the school office to notify the school administration of the masked man.

“Minor and other students in the classroom were crying and feared for their lives, as they believed they were going to be killed. The classroom teacher was pacing around the classroom and appeared scared, as well.”

Only then, the parents say, did the school administration announce that it was a lockdown drill, planned ahead of time, “to be as realistic as possible.”

The Chavis’s daughter already had been under the case of a psychologist for two years, and the school knew it, they say. She continues to suffer from the stress of the drill, and post-traumatic stress syndrome.

Her parents seek damages and special damages for negligence, breach of duty of care, personal injuries, medical expenses and loss of enjoyment of life.

They are represented by Harrison Kiehm.

After the drill first became public in 2015, school officials were quick to defend the decision. In response to an inquiry from KHON 2 news, the Department of Education released a statement at the time noting, “Safety drills provide real-life situations where schools can analyze areas of strengths and weaknesses. In order to accomplish this, students are not notified when a drill will take place.”

According to KHON, the principal at Kaimuki Middle School told KHON2 sometimes they do notify students about these lockdown drills and sometimes they don’t, and they don’t plan on changing that because they want to make sure they know how students will react during these very different situations.

According to psychologist Dr. Suzanne Gelb, however, these experiences “can be very devastating. It can result in nightmares. It can be a result in a resurgence of problem behaviors that maybe were taken care of already, like rebelliousness, acting out.” Many of the parents whose children witnessed this drill agree.

Parents, who did not want to be identified, told KHON2 their kids were in tears and terrorized by the scene.

“(My child has had) sleepless nights since it’s happened, very anxious, concerned about going to school,” one parent said.

The student said at least six kids in her class were crying during the drill.

Another parent said her daughter “was afraid, and she was crying, and another friend was crying as well, and they thought they were going to die.”

What, exactly, the school was attempting to ‘teach’ the kids with this drill remains to be seen. No lessons were learned and the end result was simply a long list of traumatized children.

Muslims Make Ridiculous Demand When Suing California Cafe

Several Muslim women who insisted that their identities be concealed in a discrimination lawsuit against a California restaurant, claiming their safety was at risk, have gone on the record anyway by posting comments on social media and granting interviews to television stations.

The target of the suit, Urth Caffe of Laguna Beach, California, is now asking permission of the court to add the full names of the women to the lawsuit and to a counter-suit filed by the restaurant, according to a new filing.

WND reported the case arose after restaurant workers asked, in keeping with restaurant policy, a group of Muslim women to move or share their tables in a popular spot at the eatery on a busy night.

The women responded with a discrimination lawsuit against the restaurant, and the restaurant answered with a counter-suit against the women, charging they were engaging in Islamic “lawfare.”

The women had been asked by restaurant workers to abide by a publicly promoted policy to give up or share popular patio tables after 45 minutes. But they refused and eventually left only after police were called. (Read more from “Muslims Make Ridiculous Demand When Suing California Cafe” HERE)

Fox News Confirms Departure of Popular Host Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations

Fox News Channel confirmed in a statement Friday that the network is “amicably” parting ways with one of its most recognizable hosts.

Eric Bolling, who was suspended last month after facing allegations of sexual harassment, will no longer be associated with Fox News, where he hosted The Specialists after gaining exposure as a co-host on The Five.

Fox News also confirmed it is cancelling The Specialists, though that show’s co-hosts, Eboni Williams and Kat Timpf, are expected to remain with the network as contributors.

A permanent replacement for the program has not been announced. According to Variety, the time slot will be filled on an interim basis with news programming featuring a rotation of Fox News anchors.

According to the statement, Fox News and Bolling “agreed to part ways amicably,” making the host the latest in a string of on-air personalities to leave the network.

“We thank Eric for his 10 years of service to our loyal viewers and wish him the best of luck,” the statement read.

The news sparked discussion on social media, with several users expressing continued support for Bolling.

Several others insisted he deserved to be fired, with at least one using a compilation video in an attempt to portray him as a “sexist idiot.”

As Western Journalism reported, Bolling was suspended in early August amid allegations that he had sent a series of inappropriate text messages to two female colleagues.

Huffington Post, which was the first to publish the allegations, cited 14 unnamed sources. Bolling’s attorney, Michael J. Bowe, denied the “anonymous, uncorroborated claims” and looked forward to seeing Bolling “return to work as quickly as possible.”

With Friday’s announcement, Bolling, who also hosted Cashin’ In on Fox News, followed the departure of other prominent network figures in recent months.

Bill O’Reilly left the network in April after at least five women accused him of sexual harassment.

Earlier this week, Fox & Friends co-host Clayton Morris announced the end of his broadcast career after 18 years in television and nearly 10 years at Fox News. (For more from the author of “Fox News Confirms Departure of Popular Host Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations” please click HERE)

Twitter Bans Activist Mommy for Tweeting Her Dislike of Teen Vogue’s Sex Guide

This one falls under “too stupid to believe,” but it’s actually true. Twitter has banned writer Elizabeth Johnston, who writes at “The Activist Mommy,” for her war of words with Teen Vogue editor Phillip Picardi

Not only has Twitter banned her, but YouTube will not allow her video commentaries to be monetized. While Johnston’s posts and views are controversial to some, none of what she has to say is new. Her views on homosexuality come from the best-selling book in the world — the Bible. The tweet that got her booted was a little salty and perhaps not the best tactic to use for persuasion, but it wasn’t any more obscene than the Teen Vogue article . . .

If Phillip Picardi doesn’t like the word “sodomy,” then why is he publishing articles encouraging young girls to practice it? And why is a gay magazine handing him awards for doing it? That does seem rather strange, doesn’t it? I can only guess that Johnston got suspended for using the words “sodomite” and “sodomy” instead of “gay” and “anal sex” and thus angering the gaystappo who appear to run social media.

But who knows? Does anyone have access to the list of words we aren’t allowed to use anymore? Someone should keep a running tally for reference. Frankly, there aren’t words low enough to describe the particular slime which oozes out of people who try to sexually corrupt children. I think she was too nice.

Planned Parenthood on DREAMers: ‘Every Person Has the Right to Live’

For those who run abortion giants such as the National Abortion Rights Action League and Planned Parenthood, the immigration policy fight going on in the United States now is all about … abortion.

Shortly after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Tuesday the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program created by President Obama as a “temporary” plan to protect illegal aliens while Congress acted, Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood, tweeted: “Our doors remain open to all, including DREAMers and DACA recipients – no matter what.”

Richards, after describing the president’s action as “Cruel. Unacceptable,” soon added: “Time to fight like hell. One step you can take right away: Call Congress. Tell them to pass the #DREAMAct.”

The comment drew stunned disbelief on Twitter.

eMarc21 responded, “Please don’t complain about deporting children if you support murdering them.” (Read more from “Planned Parenthood on DREAMers: ‘Every Person Has the Right to Live'” HERE)

This Is the Teen That Anthony Weiner Was Sexting?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

By Betsy Rothstein. The mystery teen who sexted with Anthony Weiner is coming forward to talk about her experience. She wasn’t willing to let Inside Edition use her name. But she did agree to go on air and talk about what happened to her . . .

According to a release, the girl says that she contacted Weiner when his wife – Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin – was at the peak of her influence working on the presidential campaign.

She says Weiner’s power is what attracted her to him. “I knew that Hillary Clinton would be running for president in the year 2016,” she says. “I wanted to see if Anthony was still up to the same antics.”

The girl says the communication quickly moved from niceties to flirting. “I knew that it was going downhill very fast,” she says. “He called me attractive.”

Other messages Weiner sent her: “You are kinda gorgeous,” “Your body is pretty insane,” and “I thought about you this AM.” According to Inside Edition, some of the messages are “so obscene” they can’t be shown on TV.

Weiner’s Laptop at Center of Controversy; Cops Still Haven’t Released Contents

In an exclusive interview with Inside Edition, the underage girl said she sent the former Queens congressman a direct message on Twitter in January of 2016 when she was 15 year-old.

She said the messages from the Democrat quickly turned obscene — in one of them, Weiner posed shirtless with his young son. . .

Weiner’s previous sexting scandals had derailed his political career. This time, his wife Huma Abedin was helping to run Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

When the FBI started investigating Weiner’s lewd communications with the teen they confiscated his laptop. On his laptop they found a new batch of emails that Clinton had sent Abedin.

That led to former FBI Director James Comey to re-open the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server while Secretary of State, just days before the election. (Read more about the Sexting scandal HERE)

‘Ecosexual’ Professor Wants You to Have Sex With Earth

. . .You can sensually roll in the mud, make passionate love to a hulking tree or even pursue a long-term romantic relationship with the ocean.

It’s all part of an eco-sex trend exploding on Google searches in the last year, thanks in part to art professor Elizabeth Stephens, who teaches at the University of California at Santa Cruz. The movement involves a combination of art, sex and environmentalism.

Stephens, who is also chairwoman of the art department at the California state-funded university, has been filmed in documentaries, or eco-sex flicks, doing “the nasty” with nature.

And, somehow, doing the deed with Earth is supposed to save the environment from human destruction.

This “tree-hugging” professor isn’t merely hugging trees. In the 2013 film “Goodbye Gauley Mountain: An Ecosexual Love Story,” she and her female partner massage river rocks, lick trees, frolic naked in a stream and slather mud on one another. Stephens is now working on “Water Makes Us Wet: An Ecosexual Adventure.” According to The College Fix, “Water Makes Us Wet” is set to debut in Germany this week.
