What did Jeffrey Epstein’s famous friends know and see?

Jeffrey Epstein has hobnobbed with some of the world’s most powerful people during his jet-setting life. Future President Donald Trump called him a “terrific guy.” Former President Bill Clinton praised his intellect and philanthropic efforts and was a frequent flyer aboard his private jet.  The arrest of the billionaire financier on child sex trafficking charges is raising questions about how much his high-powered associates knew about the hedge fund manager’s interactions with underage girls, and whether they turned a blind eye to potentially illegal conduct.

Pastor Choco: Chicago Hood’s Crime Rate Dropped 42% When We Obeyed

Everyone knows that Chicago is one of the most dangerous, crime-ridden cities in the United States. But I recently heard an amazing story of transformation and new beginnings in that city. Pastor Wilfredo “Choco” de Jesus and his New Life Covenant Church are making a difference in the heart of Chicago—to the point that crime has dropped as much as 42% in one area as a result of their influence! I’m told that in the “hood,” whoever owns property has dominance. As you’ll read later, his church bought a grocery store/liquor store in a high-crime area. As a result, today there is a medical clinic in that location. And because the church has taken dominance, the crime rate has plummeted!  Read more: https://www.charismanews.com/opinion/76942-pastor-choco-chicago-hood-s-crime-rate-dropped-42-when-we-obeyed

‘The Church Is Under Attack’: CA Lawmakers Pass Measure Forcing Pastors to Embrace LGBT Ideology

The California State Assembly has passed a resolution telling pastors to affirm homosexuality in violation of their biblical beliefs.  Assemblyman Evan Low and three dozen other lawmakers pushed the resolution in the state Assembly Judiciary Committee that’s aimed at telling religious leaders in California what they should preach from their pulpits.  The measure passed this week, thanks in part to the help of Dr. Kevin Mannoia, Azusa Pacific University chaplain and the former head of the National Association of Evangelicals.  Liberty Counsel says Mannoia “has become a prop for the LGBT agenda.”  Read more: https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2019/june/the-church-is-under-attack-ca-lawmakers-pass-measure-forcing-pastors-to-embrace-lgbt-ideology

Trump Admin Sends Mixed Signals with LGBTQ Flag Ban

Vice President Mike Pence, along with other prominent social conservatives, is defending the Trump administration’s refusal to allow U.S. embassies across the globe to raise LGBTQ “Gay Pride” flags on the same flagpoles hosting the American flag,

The administration is denying diplomats’ requests to raise the rainbow banners on the building’s official flagpole, framing it as a matter of maintaining the preeminence of the Stars and Stripes.  The requirement to seek permission first marks a reversal of the Obama administration giving embassies full discretion to fly rainbow flags during June’s “Pride Month.”

“I support that,” stated Vice President Pence. “As the president said on the night we were elected, we’re proud to be able to serve every American, and we both feel that way very passionately.  But when it comes to the American flagpole, and American embassies, and capitals around the world, having the one American flag fly, I think is the right decision.

At the same time, President Trump announced efforts to decriminalize homosexuality overseas, issuing a statement celebrating Pride Month: “As we celebrate LGBTQ Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBTQ people have made to our great Nation, let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBTQ people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or even execute individuals….”

Predictably, U.S. Embassies around the world read between the lines and chose to disobey the President.  The US embassy in Germany announced that a “huge” gay pride flag would be hung “on as many places as it can at the Embassy,” and that “multiple” events celebrating LGBTQ Pride Month were scheduled at the embassy.  Ambassador Richard Grenell will march in the Berlin Pride Parade.  Similarly, embassies in Austria, Korea, India, Chile, etc. flew rainbow flags or otherwise celebrated LGBTQ Pride Month.  Not surprisingly, Ambassador Grenell – who was appointed by Trump – is the highest-ranking US diplomat who openly identifies himself as gay.

The President appears to be trying to please fundamentally opposite positions, seeking to mollify the social conservative base that elected him, while pandering to the powerful gay lobby, from which he received virtually no support during his election campaign.

One is reminded of the words of the Indian Chief Old Joseph back in 1855, who after being deceived by the United States into signing a treaty which cost him millions of acres of tribal lands, stated: “Me no trust white man, he speaks with forked tongue.”

How long will it take American Christians to cease their mindless support for the President, and call him into account for his thinly-disguised support for the gay agenda – and refrain from voting for someone who “speaks with forked tongue”?

School District Faces Grilling for Elementary School Teacher’s Trans-activism

A Wisconsin school district is being called to account for a teacher who promoted his transgenderism to elementary-age children.  Science teacher Mark ‘Vince’ Busenbark (a.k.a. ‘Vica Steel’) produced a video at home with his wife and showed it to every K-5th grade child at Allis Elementary School.  On Facebook, Busenbark stated the purpose of the video was “all so [the children] can know who I am and who I am becoming.”  In the video Busenbark contends people who disagree with him about the issue of  transgenderism are motivated by “fear” and “hate.”  Read more: https://www.wnd.com/2019/06/school-district-faces-grilling-for-teachers-trans-activism/#E8kW2Amsjf5uYiIf.99

Shocking: 17 Year Old Netherlands Girl Legally Euthanized, Says Being Molested as a Child Made Her Life ‘Insufferable’

A depressed seventeen year old Netherlands girl was legally euthanized last Sunday with the help of an end of life clinic.  In the Netherlands, children as young as twelve can opt for euthanasia if a doctor determines that their pain is “unbearable,” News.co.au reports.  Euthanasia is also legal in parts of the US, including California, Colorado, Oregon, Vermont, New Jersey (beginning August 1), Washington, Hawaii and Washington, DC.  Even more concerning, a 2017 Gallup poll found that 70% of Americans are in favor of euthanasia and assisted suicide.  Read more: https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/06/seventeen-year-old-netherlands-girl-legally-euthanized-says-being-molested-as-a-child-made-her-life-insufferable/

Anti-Abortion Group to Spend $41 Million in 2020

The head of the largest anti-abortion organization in the country has vowed to spend $41 million in the upcoming election cycle to help elect “pro-life” candidates, The Hill reports.  Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said Monday night that her group will “work closely with our local allies on the most ambitious pro-life legislative agenda in history to aggressively challenge, erode and finally overturn Roe v. Wade.  “On top of this, we’ll be protecting our pro-life Senate majority, increasing our ranks in the House, and reelecting [President] Donald Trump,” added Dannenfelser, who served as the chair of the Trump campaign’s anti-abortion coalition in 2016.  Read more: https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/susan-b-anthony-list-president-fundraiser/2019/06/04/id/918877/
