    Singer Selena Gomez learned firsthand about some of the horrifying atrocities of sexual trafficking during her A21 internship, Christian author Ann Voskamp revealed. Gomez, who opened up about her volunteer work with the global anti–human trafficking nonprofit in an interview with Elle back in September, was taking notes when abolitionist Christine Caine shared of a grizzly discovery in Istanbul, Turkey. Caine, who leads A21, explained how 30 bloated bodies of young girls were discovered in a shipping container in Istanbul, with another 28 “gasping for one breath of air that isn’t thick with the stench of rotting evil.” She pointed...

    Kaitlyn Lee, an 11-year-old runner from Huntsville, Alabama, started small when she first began raising money to help children with cancer. It began when she was just 7 years old. Her first goal was to raise $1,000, which she set in July 2015 and reached by October. After Lee reached that, she wanted to continue fundraising and set goal milestones of $10,000 and $15,000. When she met those by January and March of 2017 respectively, she set a goal of $25,000, which she reached by September of 2017. Then, she decided to double down and aim for $50,000 in donations....

    (RNN) – What’s wrong with our eyesight and hearing? We’ve got some serious issues. First, it was “the dress.” Was it black and blue or white and gold? Then, there was the whole Yanni vs. Laurel thing. Which did you hear? Warning: This story contains a Twitter post that some may find offensive. Now, folks are flipping out because they think they heard loveable Grover drop the F-bomb on “Sesame Street.” Just remember, we’re talking about a children’s TV show here.

    NBC News legal analyst Jill Wine-Banks is publicly floating the idea of indicting President Trump’s children if no way can be found to indict him. “I firmly believe the Constit[ution] permits indicting a sitting president, but if DOJ disagrees, indicting his children, the Trump Org & Foundation for their roles in wrongdoing is a great alternative–or addition[,]” she tweeted on Thursday: Wine-Banks is not only a frequent legal analyst for MSNBC; she was a Watergate prosecutor, served in the Carter administration as U.S. general counsel of the Army, and as the executive director of the American Bar Association. But here...
  • NBC News: 3,143 ‘Children’ 19-Years-Old and Younger Died of Firearm Related Deaths in 2017

    12/20/2018 3:14:12 PM PST · by Silentgypsy · 63 replies ^ | 12/20/2018 | Awr Hawkins
    NBC News reports that 3,143 “children” aged 19 and under died firearm-related deaths in 2016. Two quick points. First, gun control reporters and/or researchers often include 15 to 18-year-old individuals as “children,” and that raises the number of gun deaths by including ages when individuals are apt to be involved in street crime or gang violence. When studies are isolated to actual children–individuals aged 10 and below–the number of individuals killed by water and fire far outnumbers the numbers killed by firearms. In the case at hand, the researchers published in the New England Journal of Medicine focused their study...

    (On Perpetuating The Wonderful Myth of Santa Through Parental Trickery) There is one in every class. You know—that one 6 year old smart aleck who takes sadistic pleasure in being the first to announce to his naďve classmates that “There is no Santa!” Sometimes, unfortunately, it is the teacher who decides to burst their bubble and announce the secret. It is apparently politically incorrect nowadays to believe in the jolly old elf who travels the world delivering presents to young children. But then, why not? What is the harm in perpetuating the myth of Santa and allowing innocent little children...

    Dr. Dean Lorich, an orthopedic surgeon who volunteered in Haiti and exposed Clinton Foundation corruption and malpractice on the island, has been found dead in New York. He was 54. Dr. Lorich was found by his 11-year-old daughter on the bathroom floor of his tony Upper East Side apartment with a knife in his chest at around 1pm on Monday. The knife missed the surgeon’s heart, leaving him to bleed out and be found by his daughter. Despite the fact police were called to the property regarding an “assault“, they instantly registered the death as “suicide” and closed the case.

    American Thinker ^ | 12/16/2018 | By Amalric de Droevig
    The mainstream media's treatment of a young girl's death while in the custody of the Border Patrol is a case study in how the mainstream media control the national narrative and manipulate public opinion to advance their leftist agenda. The purpose of flooding the internet and the airwaves with propaganda about the death and life of Jakelin Maquin isn't to edify or inform the public; it is to make Americans feel bad about enforcing any immigration laws at all. The real crime here isn't any wrongdoing on the part of the Border Patrol. The real crime, according to our Cultural...

    Every Wednesday, the second hour of my national radio show is the “Male/Female Hour.” A few weeks ago, a woman named Jennifer called in.For reasons of space, I have somewhat shortened her comments. Every young woman should read them. This is precisely what she said:“Dennis, I want to get right to it. I’m 50 years old with four college degrees. I was raised by a feminist mother with no father in the home. My mother told me get an education to the maximum level so that you can get out in the world, make a lot of money. And that’s...

    Pediatricians have to deal with all kinds of interesting situations in their daily work with children, and kids eating random objects is one of them. Children just love to stick stuff in their mouths, and while parents do their best to keep tiny toys away from eager eaters thereÂ’s always a chance that something like a Lego finds its way into the stomach of a youngster. A half-dozen pediatricians decided to see what effect, if any, a tiny yellow Lego head would have on their own bodies by volunteering to swallow them. Their findings were reported in the Journal of...

    A farmer died after his dog knocked over a lever in his forklift truck, causing it to move forward and push him against a gate, causing fatal injuries, an inquest heard on Friday. Derek Mead was constructing a rock garden at his residence in Hewish, near Weston-super Mare, in Somerset, England, on June 4, 2017, the BBC reported. The 70-year-old farmer left his furry friend, a Jack Russell terrier, inside the machine as it was running but left it in neutral as he went to open the gate leading to his land, the Evening Standard reported. The dog was believed...

    Unless we fix it, our devolution into another failed socialist state—or worse--is virtually assured. Fifty years of carefully orchestrated ignorance and mediocrity is more than enough On Monday, the American Thinker published a column by Bruce Deitrick Price entitled “K-12: Six Steps to Reform Education Right Now.” In it he offered up transparently useful reforms regarding the mastering of reading, writing, math, geography, history and science, all of which would lead inexorably to the development of critical thinking skills. “Immediately, we will start having educated children again,” Price asserts. All well and good save for one inconvenient reality: the premise...

    The practice of parents with similarly aged children meeting up for play dates is in the cross hairs of the DC bureaucracy. State Superintendent of Education Hanseul Kang has charged that these informal arrangements "are an illegal intrusion on turf reserved for my department. There are public institutions targeting young children and their development. Every hour wasted at some play group run by unqualified parents is an hour that could have been spent in a program run by professionals. It doesn't matter that the play dates are voluntary or that participation seemingly hurts no one. We will levy fines or...

    I know from experience that laws are hard to pass -- and they're just as hard to change. That's by design. Laws are meant to provide some stability from one administration to the next. But apparently, someone needs to share that insight to the new governor of Kansas, Laura Kelly (D). The state's next chief executive didn't waste any time letting locals know that their democratically-passed adoption law would be the first thing she'll scrap. Forty-eight hours after her win, the administration seems to have a new motto: upholding the law is optional.Kelly, who must have graduated from Barack Obama's...

    The site I listed really does not have the answer I'm looking for but we got on this discussion at work. I understand the 14th amendment clause, 1866 dealing with the civil rights acts etc. The question I have is a person I work with is from Canada. While he was waiting for his citizenship he had 3 children. Then he received his citizenship. I argue that the intention to become a citizen has been started and in the works, therefore establishing "intent". My co-worker argues that his kids are not citizens and Trump's EO and the 14th amendment would...

    On September 9, Rudy Peters, the Republican running for Congress in the 15th District in California, was attacked by a knife-wielding man shouting, "F___ Trump". The attacker, Farzad Fazeli, an Iranian Clinton supporter, had previously posted, “Don Trump won’t clean his own house, so he’s too dirty to know right from wrong. Impeach/incarcerate him before more children die. P.S. complacency is worse than being the shooter.” The next month, Shane Mekeland, a Republican running for the Minnesota House of Representatives, suffered a concussion after being punched in the face at a restaurant. “You f____g people don't give a s___ about...
