TRANS-AGE: Pedophile Charged With Abusing 3 Girls Says He’s A 9-Year-Old Trapped In Man’s Body ~ Just the latest assault on reality. I predict in a year or two this will just be another thing we’re not allowed to “judge,” and trans-age discrimination will be a crime ~

A quick list of Justin Trudeau’s tyrannical acts against life, family, and Christians ~ Sure glad my French-Canadian great-grandfather emigrated when he did! What a contrast with our pro-life, Christian-friendly president. The prime minister’s latest edict ~

The Trudeau government plans to announce that employers applying for the Canada Summer Jobs Program must sign an “attestation” that they support abortion and transgenderism.

Satanic Temple Finds Reason to Fight the Abortion Laws in Missouri ~ The very fact that a court would even consider this case, much less pass it on to a superior court, illustrates just how far from our Judeo-Christian roots we have strayed. Since when do we let satanists determine when life begins? ~

Missouri’s Solicitor General D. John Sauer declared Wednesday that ultrasounds are not required to obtain an abortion in the state, according to a press release from The Satanic Temple […]
The group’s attorney argued in court that the ultrasound was medically unnecessary and a violation of religious freedom because according to Satanism, life does not begin at conception.

After Secret Picture of Obama and Farrakhan Is Leaked, Photo of Trump Resurfaces on Twitter ~

The image of Obama and (Nation of Islam leader and virulent anti-Semite) Louis Farrakhan was reportedly captured in 2005 by journalist Askia Muhammad during a Congressional Black Caucus meeting.
As for allegations that the 2005 photo of Obama was suppressed for political purposes, Muhammad acknowledged that he initially agreed to keep it secret because of its possible impact on Obama’s presidential ambitions as well as out of fear of retaliation by individuals he said did not want the photo to be released.

Good heavens! Mustn’t let the truth get out!

[The Trump photo the article refers to is one taken during a 1986 ceremony at which Trump, Rosa Parks and Muhammad Ali were among the 80 Americans awarded the Ellis Island Medal of Honor.]
