VIDEO: Drag Queen Confesses To ‘GROOMING Next Generation’ During His ‘Story Hours’


Written by Wes Walker on December 3, 2018

That’s a direct quote from the Drag Queen, too. He said it on purpose, knowing what he was saying. We have raised the issue of Drag Queens offering story time in libraries before. If you’re interested in the background of the story, and some sense of just how much it has proliferated, you can get up to speed with any of these three related stories:
Major Texas Library Debuts ‘Drag Queen Storytime’ For The Kiddos
Dear Parents: Would You Allow Drag Queens To Read To Your Kiddies About Drag Queens?
Drag Queens: Feminine Appreciation Or Female ‘Minstrel Shows’?

Now that we’re all up to speed, here’s the problem. This guy (Dylan Pontiff) raised the notion of ‘grooming’ as a good thing. For most of us, grooming, in the context of children, is an outrageous concept. We’re not talking about personal hygiene. If you’re wondering why he complained that the room “reacted” to the words he used, there’s a very specific reason.

In the context of a public meeting where parents and other responsible adults were expressing their concerns that having men dressed as women visiting young children for Storytime to read to them, where the innocence of childhood was being challenged by having confusing and unnecessarily complex sexual concepts introduced at a very young and impressionable age, the speaker (who is also the cross-dresser who would be ‘performing’ at this story time) introduced the term ‘grooming’ quite willingly, and said it was something he was actively doing.

Why did people object?

Grooming is a term typically used in describing the efforts of an adult to prepare a vulnerable youth to be receptive to future sexual advances. It involves as the reducing of inhibitions, desensitizing the child to awkward and uncomfortable (sexualized) situations and normalizing abnormal sexual behavior so that it seems ok and safe. See the problem?

Now cue up to what he says from about the 2:20 mark and forward.

Besides citing the inappropriateness of introducing children to adult entertainers, some parents have voiced concerns about the pro-gay and transgender ideology behind the story times.

Pontiff then said that the event will be “the grooming of the next generation.”

“I’m here to let you know that this event is something that’s going to be very beautiful and for the children and the people that support it are going to realize that this is going to be the grooming of the next generation. We are trying to groom the next generation,” Pontiff said.

Remember, first he’s arguing that he isn’t doing some kind of ‘indoctrination’.

Then he turns around and says he was intentionally grooming young people. Intentionally trying to shape and change their views of men dressing up as women (Which, if you follow the logic of the ‘Minstrel Show’ article, cited above, is arguably derogatory and insulting to genuine women.)

And after that, he points his skinny finger at the ’50 or so’ people who gasped at the concept of their children being ‘groomed’, and proceeded to paint THEM as evil intolerant whackos.

Planned Parenthood’s latest propaganda


Reported by Charlie Butts (OneNewsNow.com) | Monday, December 3, 2018

An abortion business is using a popular media resource to promote parental acceptance of transgender children. The Planned Parenthood video, designed for parents, suggests there is nothing they can do to change their child’s gender identity — that a boy who wants to be a girl should be left to his view of the subject.

Jim Sedlak of the American Life League (ALL) says it is just a business move to generate more revenue for the organization, as Planned Parenthood provides drugs to children in order to prevent puberty.

“Planned Parenthood in a number of places is selling what they call puberty blockers, which are products that block the production of testosterone in boys and estrogen in girls until the kids can pick out what gender they want to be,” Sedlak explains.

Sedlak, Jim (American Life League)But in many states, parents must consent to the puberty blockers, so the video is really propaganda to convince them to sign on the dotted line for the sake of their child’s mental health, which the ALL president says is a false statement.

“So Planned Parenthood in our estimation has started this widespread campaign to get parents to get comfortable with letting children choose their identity so that the parents will sign off and Planned Parenthood will be allowed to deliver these puberty blockers to their children,” Sedlak continues.

The truth, however, is children usually outgrow the gender dysphoria by their teenage years, or the psychological problem can be addressed through mental health counseling.

Filmmaker Embedded in Caravan Gets to the Truth. Migrants Themselves Expose US Media as Total Liars


Reported By Malachi Bailey } November 15, 2018 at 2:16pm

A filmmaker traveled to Mexico and did what the U.S. media didn’t do: he witnessed the migrant caravan for himself and exposed the truth.nFilmmaker Ami Horowitz went to Oaxaca in southern Mexico to uncover the truth about the migrant caravan.

The caravan, consisting of thousands of Honduran illegal immigrants, has caught the attention of the media as it heads toward the United States. However, much of the coverage consists of hand-waving from the left-wing establishment media, which claims the caravan consists of peaceful families just trying to escape violence.

After visiting the caravan for himself, Horowitz came to a different conclusion.

“Despite the framing of the caravan as being full of women and children, the reality on the ground is quite different. Approximately 90 to 95 percent of the migrants were male,” Horowitz said in a Twitter video.

Last month, BBC wrote that “The migrants, mostly from Honduras, say they are fleeing violence and poverty, and include women and children.” That’s a grossly misleading statement for a caravan consisting of over 90 percent men.

The establishment media also continuously repeated the narrative that the caravan is made up of people seeking to escape violence.

“We do know that many migrants have said they are fleeing terrible gang violence, with some fearing for their lives,” The Guardian claimed last month.

However, Horowitz discovered that the migrants are actually seeking employment when they illegally enter the United States.

“The major narrative being pushed by the press has been that the migrants are leaving Honduras because they are facing extreme violence and that their lives are under constant threat,” Horowitz said.

To discover if this was true, the filmmaker asked several migrants, “Why are you coming to America?”

“To get a job,” one responded. “To work,” said another.

It’s clear that these migrants, who are mostly male, are economic migrants seeking American jobs. They aren’t “women and children who are “fleeing violence.”

It’s completely absurd that the truth had to come from a filmmaker investigating the caravan for himself because the establishment media is too busy peddling lies and misinformation.

American media, just stick to your job

Shick

Many in the media truly believe they are serving children’s best interests by promoting the LGBTQ agenda. If only they would just inform people based on facts obtained through objective investigation.


Well, it’s official now: Jazz Jennings – born 18 years ago as Jared, with normally functioning male parts – now has female parts.

Despite a “complication” requiring a second procedure, Jazz is happy to tell her throngs of adoring fans that her surgery was a success and that now “I just get to be myself, be in the body that I’ve always wanted.”

In case you missed it somewhere along the way – as you worked those long, hard hours scraping up enough money to pay the rent and feed your family – in 2007, when Jared was just seven years old, he became the poster-child for childhood transgenderism. ABC’s Barbara Walters gave the young boy the platform he needed to become a wealthy celebrity – as a girl, Jazz. Many other media appearances soon followed. Jazz quickly became a star, with her own TV show.

Alluring attention

Imagine for a moment being seven years old and having adoring adult celebrities praise you – on TV, in front of millions of viewers – as a brave, pioneering role model. Imagine, while still transitioning out of baby teeth, having your own TV show – on the implied condition that you continue as the brave young transitioning pioneer. How would all that fame and adulation affect you? Who, whether child or adult, wouldn’t feed on such flattering attention?

Now imagine you are another seven- to twelve-year-old watching the Jazz interviews – or her own TV show. It must appear pretty captivating – pretty enticing. Is it possible that our media are feeding the surging childhood interest in transgenderism?

Studies on peer-group pressure

One study indicates it could be. “Rapid-onset gender dysphoria in adolescents and young adults: A study of parental reports[i] by Dr. Lisa Littman and others at Brown University concluded in part:

It is plausible that ROGD represents an ego-syntonic maladaptive coping mechanism for some AYAs and that peer group and online influences may contribute to its development. It is unknown whether the gender dysphoria of rapid-onset gender dysphoria is temporary or likely to be long-term. The elevated number of friends per friendship group who became transgender-identified, the pattern of cluster outbreaks of transgender-identification in these friendship groups, the substantial percentage of friendship groups where the majority of the members became transgender-identified, and the peer group dynamics observed all serve to support the plausibility of social and peer contagion for ROGD.

In other words, “Look at all the attention Jazz is getting. That’s so cool!” Okay, that’s clearly in considerably more vernacular phrasing than anything seen in the Brown study. But kids don’t read those kinds of studies; they’re the subjects of such studies. And if you read between the lines, that appears to be what’s happening.

Before I get deluged with angry replies telling me the above-cited Brown study has been debunked, let me elaborate. Lisa Littman, who led the Brown University study, is assistant professor of the Practice of Behavioral and Social Sciences at Brown. I won’t take up your time by listing all her credentials. Please go see them for yourself. Prior to this study no one questioned Dr. Littman’s credentials or her objectivity. But these days the preferred method of operation in refuting studies is censorship rather than open debate. After heated objections from LGBTQ groups, Dr. Littman’s published study, previously posted on the Brown University website, has been removed.

According toDevelopment of Intra‐ and Intergroup Judgments in the Context of Moral and Social‐Conventional Norms,” a study led by University of Maryland developmental psychologist Melanie Killen: “Peer group pressure begins in elementary schools, as early as age nine. It’s what kids actually encounter there on any given day.” Kids, it turns out, want to be like those famous kids.

Growing percentage of transgenders?

When my father came out as a woman back in the 1980s, the very thought of changing one’s gender was foreign to nearly everyone. Post Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner, transgenderism has become the progressive crusade du jour, and the numbers appear to be growing. The generally accepted percentage of adult transgenders in the U.S is about half of one percent. But a recent study of high schoolers has pegged the percentage at about three percent. While three percent might seem insignificant, it’s dramatically larger than half a percent. If the percentage has grown by a factor of six over the preceding generation, that is truly significant.

Reporters or promoters?

So … are the media merely reporting the trend or successfully promoting it? Thomas Sowell wisely wrote:

Media bias in editorials and columns is one thing. Media fraud in reporting ‘facts’ in news stories is something else …. The issue is not what various journalists or news organizations’ editorial views are. The issue is the transformation of news reporting into ideological spin, along with self-serving taboos and outright fraud.

Many in the media truly believe they are serving kids’ best interests by promoting the LGBTQ agenda. But the role of the media is simply to inform based on facts obtained through objective investigation. The role of the media’s consumers is to choose how to interpret and apply those facts.

American media, stick to your job, please.

Boy Sits in School Hallway Crying. Officer Sits Down Beside Him & Tells Him He is ‘Loved’


Reported By Kim Davis | August 11, 2018 at 11:46am

“Those that do the most, those that go above and beyond are those that are rarely recognized.”

The heartfelt words from Phoenix resident Edna Guerrero were in response to a beautiful moment she witnessed between an emotional boy and a school resource officer.

Guerrero has long witnessed the humble actions of school resource officer Rusty Baubie.

He’s always on the lookout for the well-being of the students he’s promised to serve and protect.

Baubie tends to shrug off his daily acts of kindness, Guerrero explained, saying that he’s just doing his job.

But after Guerrero witnessed the gentle manner in which Baubie responded to an inconsolable student at school, she felt like he deserved some public recognition.

Baubie happened to be in the right place at the right time. He saw, and heard, a student screaming and crying desperately in the hallway.

The boy collapsed to the floor, sobbing with his head buried into his knees.

At that moment, the boy seemed to be overwhelmed by self-loathing, audibly vocalizing the terrible thoughts running through his mind.

“A student was having a difficult time, was screaming and inconsolably crying, saying sad and negative things about himself,” Guerrero wrote on Facebook. “This officer looked through the eyes of this student and immediately showed mercy.”

Baubie took a seat next to the crying boy and saw him for who he was: just a kid who was desperate for love, and in need of an encouraging word.

“This officer spoke softly to the student letting him know that he did matter, that he was important, that he was loved,” Guerrero said.

“This officer helped this student understand that we all make mistakes and that those mistakes do not define who we are and we just learn from them and move on.”

Sgt. Armando Carbajal, a public information officer at the Phoenix Police Department, said Baubie has been with the police force for 13 years. Baubie is a husband, father, and described as a very humble man.

“Police officers are there to provide safety and to teach,” Carbajal said. “But this was one duty that you can’t put on paper.”

3 Kids School Shopping with Military Uncle After Mom Dies Blessed by Elderly Couple


Reported By Kayla Kunkel | August 7, 2018 at 4:02pm

It’s easy to get caught up in our day to day routines, forgetting that the people who surround us have their own stories and struggles.

But by doing this, we could be missing out on opportunities to lend a helping hand to someone in need. It only takes a second to be a little more observant, and the results could make a huge impact.

A story shared by an Alabama woman is the perfect example of why this is important.

Angela O’Neal Jacks was shopping at her local Dollar Tree in Gardendale, Alabama, on July 31, 2018, when she noticed a man shopping for school supplies with three children.

Dollar Tree

He was checking over a school supply list with the kids and was apologizing that they had to shop at a discount store to get some of the items, but the kids continued to be “cheerful and nothing but thankful.”

Angela decided to give a little friendly advice by telling the man that he could purchase better quality pencil boxes for the same price at a different store.

The stranger was thankful for the information and shared that the children had just lost their mother three weeks prior. He was their uncle and had taken the kids in when no one else stepped up to take care of them.

The military man had no idea just how expensive back-to-school items were going to be; he just knew he needed to take care of his late sister’s kids.

“(He) said they had needed complete wardrobes, backpacks, supplies etc. He was overwhelmed and also upset about the Dollar Tree, but was doing the best he could,” she wrote.

Angela was about to take his list and give him more money-saving tips when an elderly couple approached them.

They said, “Sir, we have overheard your conversation. We were wondering if you would put all of this back and meet us at Wal-mart? We’d like to purchase all of their supplies, clothes, shoes and backpacks.”

“We’d like to thank you for your service to our country and to these kids,” they continued.

The man and three kids were extremely grateful. Angela said there were “tears everywhere.”

In the middle of thank you’s and tears, one of the children piped up and said, “Can we get an MP3 player, too?”

Angela’s heart melted and she quickly responded, “You sure can, sweetheart.”

She told Liftable (a brand of Western Journal) that as a mother of four, she knew how disheartening it can be to not own something most other kids at school do. “They had just lost their mother. I wanted to bring a little joy,” she said.

Angela also wrote a Facebook post detailing the precious interaction hoping that it inspires others to take a second to notice those around them and be ready to lend a helping hand.

Meeting this sacrificial man and learning more about his story served as a sweet reminder for her.

She told Liftable, “It reminds me that we never know what someone else is going through and that we should be ready to help those in need in whatever way we are able.”

Watch: Border Agent Expertly Flips Script on CNN, Leaves Host Speechless


Reported By Erin Coates | June 20, 2018 at 2:21pm

URL of the original posting site: https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/watch-border-agent-expertly-flips-script-on-cnn-leaves-host-speechless/

The establishment media’s narrative is clear: President Donald Trump is inhumane and is separating families trying to illegally cross the border because he is a monster.

People across Twitter have picked up on the claims, and Peter Fonda even called for people to “rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage” so that Melania Trump will “stand up” to her husband.

So, it’s not okay for children who are not citizens of this country to be taken from their parents who have broken the law, but it’s totally okay to kidnap the president’s son and put him in a cage? Sounds a little hypocritical to me.

But CNN quickly ran into a roadblock when they tried to get a border patrol agent to admit that the conditions the kids were being kept in at the border were horrific.

Brooke Baldwin interviewed Chris Cabrera, a spokesperson for the National Border Patrol Council, on CNN Tuesday to grill him on “these children being ripped from their parents,” The Daily Caller reported.

“I understand where you’re coming from. I don’t think everybody understands what is actually happening down here. You have a lot of these kids that are coming here and put through terrible, terrible situations by their parents. They are brought over in extremely dangerous conditions and extremely dangerous terrain,” Cabrera said.

All this could be avoided if they just go through the port of entry. There would be no crime committed by them and they wouldn’t get separated. Why they don’t do this is beyond me, but this problem is very easily solved, at least on the short-term basis, by going through the port of entry. If they choose to go through the (Rio Grande) river, they’re committing a crime just like anyone else and they’re subject to arrest. And we know when you get arrested, you don’t get to stay with your family.”

Baldwin tries to break it down so that it looks like the illegal immigrants are the victims, and Cabrera clarifies that crossing the Rio Grande is illegal for both U.S. citizens and immigrants. She then asked about delays for asylum seekers and families being turned away at a port of entry with an “indefinite delay.”

Cabrera replies that that is exactly the problem. “We’ve had this situation going on for four years now. I don’t think you can necessarily blame it on one administration or the other. It started under one and is continuing under another. It hasn’t been fixed and it needs to be fixed.”

As Baldwin tries to interrupt, the border patrol agent continued, “Right now we have this beacon of, ‘We’ll leave the light on for you and let you come illegally into the country.’ If you’ve seen some of the stuff we’ve seen, you’d understand how important it is to have a tough stance to divert people from coming here.”

He then tells Baldwin about the horrors these children face because immigrants have been allowed to “take advantage of this system.”

“When you see a 12-year-old girl with a plan B pill, her parents put her on birth control because they know getting violated is part of the journey, that’s a terrible way to live. When you see a 4-year-old girl traveling alone with just her parents’ phone number written across her shirt. Something needs to be done. We had a 9-year-old boy have heat stroke in front of us and die with no family around. That’s because we’re allowing people to continue take advantage of this system.”

It is on Congress, Cabrera pointed out, to change these laws and get these problems fixed.

“They need to come in there, they need to get to work and they need to change this law,” he said. “Until then, us as border patrol agents, we have a duty to enforce these laws and we will continue to do it until they change this law and hopefully they will.”

Baldwin responded to these horrors and this call to Congress by asking for reassurance that the kids America is outraged about are being treated humanely, looking one last time to put the agent into a corner. And Cabrera flips the narrative again.

“I can tell you with absolute certainty that they are being treated humanely. Most of our agents are parents. I’ve seen guys, and I’ve done it myself, you give your last bottle of water to a kid, you’ll take a toy out of your car to give to one of these kids because you know the situation they’re in,” Cabrera said.

“Agents are very sympathetic. We’re human, we’re fathers, we have families. We do a lot for the communities here, whether or not a camera is involved. Our agents are very involved. And nobody saves more lives along the southwestern border than the U.S. Border patrol.”

So, it looks like the border patrol agents are not evil monsters after all. Cabrera makes a good point, despite what your opinions are about the situation, it is up to the lawmakers to make any changes. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has drafted executive orders for Trump to sign that wouldn’t end the zero-tolerance policy, but would instead try to keep families together while they are detained.

At least the Trump administration is trying to do something. Congressional Democrats, it’s your move.
