Random links of interest, concern or curiosity from the past week or so, that deserve at least a SHORT mention:

 
More evidence dating Shroud of Turin to time of Christ ~ I’ve always been fascinated by “The Shroud.” Despite exhaustive analysis, and ever-more sophisticated methods of examination, the relic has yet to be proven anything but authentic ~

(A)n expert on ancient Roman coins has discovered more evidence that the burial cloth could have been used to cover the body of Jesus.

 
Chuck Schumer, de facto president ~ Bryan Fischer with more on the GOP budget betrayal ~

We gave Republicans everything they said they had to have to get things done in DC. In return we get a shameful capitulation to Democrats on virtually everything of vital importance – and Senator Schumer inaugurated as the new king of the hill.

 
‘I consider myself trans-species’: Fantasy fan transforms himself into an ELF with £25,000 of plastic surgery including full body hair removal, skin bleaching and eye colouring ~ Yet another tragically-deluded soul (although someday soon it will be considered a vicious attack to actually point that out) ~

‘I consider myself trans-species, in the same way transgender people feel, I need to become how I feel inside, I don’t expect people to understand but I ask they respect it.
 
‘The fantasy genre makes me happy and because I didn’t have many friends when I was younger I submerged myself into it.’

 
Flashback – one year ago this week: Ted Cruz Unloads on Trump in Indiana: “I’m going to tell you what I really think of Donald Trump.” (VIDEO)~ Prescient, but the Trump juggernaut was on the move, and no one wanted to hear it ~

Donald will betray his supporters on every issue. If you care about immigration, Donald is laughing at you. And he’s telling the moneyed elites that he doesn’t believe what he’s saying, he’s not gonna build a wall – that’s what he told the New York Times, he will betray you on every issue across the board.

 
Couples are turning extra IVF embryos into jewellery ~ If this story doesn’t make you nauseous nothing will. Belinda Stafford (NSW, Australia) can now wear her dead babies around her neck every day ~

“Donating our embryos wasn’t an option for us and I couldn’t justify the yearly storage fee.
 
“I’d heard others had planted them in the garden but we move a lot, so I couldn’t do this.
 
“I needed them with me.”

When you’re this self-centered, there really is no hope.

 
Navy SEAL killed near Mogadishu. What are US troops doing there? ~ We’re suddenly “advising” the Somali National Army on how to fight Al-Shabaab?

(G)iven that Somalia hardly has a functioning government, it’s hard to see how American efforts in the country will pay off in the long term. Additionally, Somalia is one of the least free countries on the planet. Skeptics have challenged the wisdom of an American government picking a winner in a semi-failed state that does not have the ability to defend either its borders or its people.

 
Bill O’Reilly, Fox News, and the pornification of conservative media ~ Like frogs in boiling water, we’ve grown so used to Fox’s objectification of women we’ve hardly noticed how it’s permeated their entire network. And when that sort of sleazy environment is aggressively promoted, it shouldn’t be surprising when harassment charges surface ~

Whether O’Reilly himself is guilty or not, the only thing surprising about the revelation that some of the male leadership at Fox may have sexually harassed female employees, is that so many people are surprised by it.

 
Bill Nye’s Ice Cream Cartoon Condemns Monogamous Heterosexual Sex as Unnatural and Immoral ~ I’m not going to link to Nye’s outlandish cartoon (you can find it on YouTube), it’s beyond offensive. Ben Shapiro’s commentary tells you everything you need to know ~

(T)he song is a lie. Billy Nye is definitely not about making a choice about how you govern your own sexuality. That is not what he wants. What he does want is a world full of people getting their freak on with multiple partners of every conceivable gender. Bill Nye wants a world filled with loveless sex, unbridled lust, and orgies. And in order to convey that deadly message to your children, the sinister Nye uses a cartoon featuring ice cream cones.

 
Deliberately mocking those of us who still believe that sex is a sacred act that God meant to be shared between a man and women who have made a life-long commitment to one another ~

He is not even subtle. (In Nye’s cartoon), the “Vanilla Cone,” is a Christian who believes in monogamous heterosexual sex and converting those who do not. In the end, however, it is Vanilla who is converted, who finally loosens up and discovers true joy as a slut eager to have sex with everything and everyone.

 
Domestic Terrorist Bill Ayers Working With ANTIFA Terrorist Group ~ Anarchists-of-a-feather ~

(Ayers’ group) “Refuse Fascism“, a fascist organization that wishes to inhibit and deny the speech of conservatives, is partly funded by George Soros. It has organizers like Bill Ayers and is targeting youth across the country with the intention of indoctrinating and brainwashing individuals who nascent politically. We know Ayers was associated with Barrack Obama and is a big supporter of various socialists and communists as well as violent terrorists.

 
Lessons Unlearned From the ’92 LA Riots ~ On the 25th anniversary of the LA riots, Star Parker looks at progressive failure and Barack Obama’s squandered opportunity to help heal America’s racial divide ~

We all should look to the words of Abraham Lincoln in his second inaugural, “With malice towards none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds…”

 
Why do people who eat lots of apples live longer? ~ Just a friendly health tip. Think I’ll go buy a bag :)
