The Church of Sweden Drops the ​Concept of a​ Male God for the Sake of Inclusion and Diversity

In a bid to become more inclusive, the Church of Sweden has voted to adopt a new handbook that discards masculine references to God, such as “H​e” and “Lord.”  The Church ​supports same-sex marriages, has accepted a lesbian bishop, and supports removing crosses from the local Seamen’s Church in order to accommodate Muslim believers. -GEG

In a bid to become more inclusive, the Church of Sweden has voted to adopt a new handbook that advocates discarding masculine references to God, such as “he” and “Lord.”

Amid scathing criticism, the Church of Sweden has approved the new controversial and gender-neutral handbook by a large majority. The new guidelines, which are a politically correct update of a more traditional 1986 handbook, are the centerpiece for the church’s activities, as they explicate the rules for how it operates in terms of language and proceedings.

The most divisive proposal was to stop “unnecessarily” referring to God in a masculine way, such as “he,” “Lord” and “Master” to make the church more inclusive. Another contentious instance of the church’s politically correct newspeak is the notion of “sin” being replaced with “shortcoming.”

Instead of the traditional way, God may thus be referred to as “Mother” in some prayers, according to the handbook.

“God, Holy Trinity, Father and Mother, Son — Sister and Brother, and Spirit — Lifeguard and Giver of Inspiration, lead us to your depths of wealth, wisdom and knowledge,” an example quoted by the handbook said.

Archbishop Antje Jackelén thanked everyone who participated in the work.

“Let’s show the world that we are a church that can embrace diversity,” Jackelén said, as quoted by the Church of Sweden’s mouthpiece Kyrkans Tidning.

The initiative, which has been in progress since 2009, triggered strong reactions, not least from within the church itself.

“I believe that some of these variants are in flagrant discord with great church tradition and the ecumenical consensus that exists between major churches,” Church commissioner Mikael Löwegren in Ljungby, Småland County said, as quoted by the Sydsvenskan daily.

Löwegren argued that this decision signified that the Church of Sweden “ceased to exist as a coherent spiritual community.””Under the guise of ‘diversity’, society is being broken down into different groups,” Löwegren said, arguing that the new manual effectively dismantled church unity by allowing differences from parish to parish. He also argued that the gender-neutrality toward God “took the Church of Sweden further away from major churches instead of bringing it closer to them.”

Priest Helena Edlund, who blasted the church for having shown “a total unwillingness to listen to criticism,” expressed her concern over the development.

“If the Church of Sweden is to be a part of the world-wide Christian church, we cannot always choose the paths that tear us apart from the tree and its roots, we must choose unity instead of breaking away,” Edlund told the Världen Idag news outlet last year.

However, Sofia Camnerin, the deputy chair of the Uniting Church of Sweden, defended the use of “inclusive language” in the church.

“Referring to God as ‘Lord’ consolidates gender hierarchies and the subordination of women in a white, Western feminist context,” Camnerin argued in a blog earlier this year, claiming that legitimizing hierarchies led to violence and subordination.

YouTube Vows to Purge Harmful Content Aimed at Children


Google-owned YouTube, which has been under fire for allowing kids programming to get out of control with violent and exploitative content, finally responded to public indignation and promises to implement filters to block violence and adult-themed material from videos targeting children and families – no date given for this move, however.  YouTube did shut down the notorious Toy Freaks channel that had ten million subscribers​. It features a father who played pranks on his daughters, which many people saw as the legitimization of abuse.  There are many cartoon producers creating violent and sexually suggestive content aimed at children apparently ​for the sole purpose of traumatizing them and creating social attitudes that reject traditional values. -GEG




Honolulu Police Demand Medical Marijuana Cardholders Turn In Their Guns


The Honolulu Police Department is ordering medical marijuana cardholders to surrender their guns, ammunition and permits within 30 days.  In August 2016, the US Court of Appeals ruled that it is Constitutional to ban gun ownership from marijuana users, not because they are considered to be incapable of safely possessing guns, but because the plant remains illegal at the federal level.  This is due to a Hawaii statute that makes it illegal to own a firearm if it is forbidden by federal law – another case of states voluntarily surrendering their sovereign rights to the federal government. ​​-GEG​

The Honolulu Police Department is ordering medical marijuana cardholders to surrender their firearms within a 30-day window of time.

KITV reports that Honolulu police are doing this via letters to cardholders demanding they “surrender weapons, permits, and ammunition to HPD or to transfer ownership.”

On November 28 The Honolulu Star reported that police have been sending letters throughout the year and the one dated November 13 was signed by HPD chief Susan Ballard. It says, “Your medical marijuana use disqualifies you from ownership of firearms and ammunition.”

Ballard points to Hawaii Revised Statutes, Section 134-7 (a), which says, “No person who is a fugitive from justice or is a person prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition under federal law shall own, possess, or control any firearm or ammunition therefor.”

On August 31, 2016, Breitbart News reported that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled that a ban on gun ownership for medical marijuana users is constitutional. The decision was based on the fact that marijuana use remains illegal on the federal level, whether state-sanctioned or not. This means medical marijuana cardholders cannot pass background check form 4473 and, therefore, cannot legally purchase a firearm.

Washington Post Reporter Admits ​T​here Is No Evidence to Support the​ Claim of​ Trump-Russia Collusion

Project Veritas recorded Washington Post’s National Security reporter, Adam Entous, admitting that the Russia story is a “f***ing crapshoot” because there is no evidence that Trump colluded with the Russians during the 2016 presidential election or at any other time​.  Yet, the Washington Post continues to roll out headlines supporting that claim. Melissa McCullough, the Director of Newsroom Operations at the Washington Post​, exposes her bias against Trump, ​saying “let’s just hope he doesn’t get re-elected in another three years.” -GEG​

Monday, Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe, tweeted a video of Washington Post reporter Aaron Davis attempting to ambush the group’s imminent undercover bombshell video on the paper.

Smoking Gun: High Levels of Aluminum in Autistic Brains Triggers Autism


A new study from Professor Chris Exley of Keele University in England links autism to aluminum in the brains of autistic children.  The study found that the lowest dosage of aluminum, at 200 mcg, actually ​delivered more aluminum to the brain than a higher dosage. The reason for this has not been studied but may be because the body attempts to isolate aluminum before it gets to the brain, and this protective action mat respond more quickly at higher dosages. In other words, low dosages may be more able to slip past the immune system and get to the brain before the body becomes aware of the need to respond. The size of the aluminum particles also are believed to play a role in this reverse-dosage relationship because of the fact that smaller particles pass more easily through the blood-brain barrier. The US government has given legal immunity to vaccine manufacturers so they cannot be sued for any damage to children from vaccines. -GEG

Summary by JW Williams

Del Bigtree, the producer of the documentary Vaxxed!, explains the importance of a new study by Professor Chris Exley of Keele University in England that found massive levels of aluminum in the brains of five deceased ​autistic children, in the first time that autistic brains have been dissected.  Aluminum is an adjuvant.  Adjuvants are additives in vaccines that artificially inflame the immune system to provoke a response.  Aluminum from vaccines may also be linked to senility in the elderly, and other diseases and conditions like ADD, chronic fatigue syndrome, cognitive dysfunction and more.  The study found that the lowest dosage, at 200 mg, was the most toxic, and may be correlated to the size of the particles and their ability to pass the blood/ brain barrier.
Mandatory vaccines are being rolled out in the private sector for health care workers with the goal of vaccinating the entire US population so that pharmaceutical companies may enjoy stratospheric profits.
Del reports that there has been a 1000% increase in settlements for flu vaccine injuries from the secretive vaccine court over the past two years.  When someone sues for vaccine injuries, the manufacturer has legal immunity from law suits. Instead, the government assumes the liability, and the huge settlements are paid by taxpayers, not the drug companies or their stockholders.  The US Department of Health and Human Services is responsible for vaccine testing.  Therefore, the government is not motivated to perform tests that show vaccines are harmful. If it did, the results of the tests would be used in court and would open the gates for billions of dollars in additional lawsuits.
Drug manufacturers are skewing vaccine safety tests.  Del says that the HPV genital wart vaccine given to teens is tested by giving one group the vaccine and the control group is infected with an aluminum adjuvant instead of a harmless placebo.  Despite the disastrous results, the vaccine was deemed safe because there were about the same number of people hurt by both injections that contained aluminum.  In that way, they could claim that there was no increase in autism rates​ among vaccinated kids compared to those who did not receive the vaccine.
The mainstream media is silent about all of this.

Mick Mulvaney Can Drain the Swamp at the CFPB with Access to Secretive Inner Workings


The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is an agency that claims to protect consumers in the financial sector.  Instead, it has been used as a legal money-laundering operation for collective causes.  The bureau was set up to operate without Congressional oversight and is funded by the Federal Reserve, not Congress.  CFPB Director Richard Cordray recently resigned and appointed Leandra English as his successor.  President Trump, however, intervened and appointed Mick Mulvaney instead.  Naturally, this was contested in court, and a federal judge now confirms that Mulvaney will serve this post until Trump nominates a permanent Director with the approval of the Senate.  In the meantime, swamp dweller in Washington are worried because Mulvaney now has access to the internal documents that could lead to indictments of many of them. -GEG

OMB Director Mick Mulvaney is covering as ‘Acting Director‘ for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) until a permanent replacement is nominated by President Trump.  As most people are aware the Democrats are apoplectic about their holy grail bureau being under oversight of Mr. Mulvaney.  As evidence of their angst they are supporting legal maneuvers to stop the Trump administration from carrying authority within the agency.

The Department of Justice, White House Office of Legal Counsel (OLC), agreed with President Trump’s authority to appoint an ‘acting director’.  The legal counsel within the CFPB also agreed that President Trump was well within his authority to appoint Mulvaney.   However, that didn’t stop bureau employee Leandra English from filing a weakly positioned lawsuit trying to stop Director Mulvaney.

A federal judge listened to the argument of CFPB employee Ms. English a few hours ago. Judge Tim Kelly did not make an immediate ruling.  Instead, the DOJ will file a response to the pleading later tonight and Judge Kelly said he’ll take a look and make a decision from there.

The CFPB is the product of far-left progressives, specifically Elizabeth Warren, initially setting up a financial control agency that operates without congressional oversight. The Bureau construct was challenged in court and ruled ‘unconstitutional’.  That’s the backdrop for this press conference today with Acting Director Mick Mulvaney.

.

“Only one person who today showed up at work claiming to be director.”  “She wasn’t here.”   “In the ordinary world, if you don’t call, you don’t show, you don’t have a job the next day, but I’m not sure how it works here.”

The CFPB was essentially created to work as a legal money laundering operation for progressive causes by fining financial institutions for conduct the CFPB finds in violation of their unilateral and arbitrary rules and regulations.  The CFPB then use the proceeds from the fines to fund progressive organizations and causes. That’s the underlying reason why the Democrats are fraught with anxiety right now.

Elizabeth Warren set up the bureau to operate above any oversight. Additionally, the bureau was placed under spending authority of the federal reserve. The CFPB gets its operating budget from the Federal Reserve, not from congress. Again, this was set-up to keep congress from defunding the agency as a way to remove it. Everything about the way the CFPB was structured was done to avoid any oversight. Hence, a DC circuit court finding the agency held too much power, and deemed the Directors unchecked position unconstitutional.

Mick Mulvaney is now in a position to look at the books, look at the prior records within the bureau, and expose the political agenda within it to the larger public. That is sending the progressives bananas.

Dem Congressman Arranged Taxpayer-Funded ​’​Severance Package​’​ For Staffer to Silence Claims of Bad Drunken Behavior


Democrat Representative, Raul M. Grijalva of Arizona, spent $48,395 from taxpayer funds to buy the silence of a former female staffer who threatened a lawsuit claiming Grijalva was frequently drunk and created a hostile workplace environment in 2015.  Democrat Representative, Al Green also is under fire following reports he had sex with a drug-addicted staffer and then sued her in 2008 after she threatened to go public with the encounter.  Green is one of the most outspoken politicians calling for the impeachment of President Trump. -GEG

Yet another Democrat Congressman is embroiled in a hush fund scandal. This time the lawmaker in question is Democrat Rep. Raul M. Grijalva.

 The Arizona lawmaker arranged a “severance package” in 2015 for a staffer threatening a lawsuit claiming Grijalva was frequently drunk and created a hostile workplace environment.

Washington Times reports:

Rep. Raul M. Grijalva quietly arranged a “severance package” in 2015 for one of his top staffers who threatened a lawsuit claiming the Arizona Democrat was frequently drunk and created a hostile workplace environment, revealing yet another way that lawmakers can use taxpayer dollars to hide their misbehavior on Capitol Hill.

While the Office of Compliance has been the focus of outrage on Capitol Hill for hush-money payouts in sexual harassment cases, the Grijalva payout points to another office that lawmakers can use to sweep accusations under the rug with taxpayer-funded settlements negotiated by the House Employment Counsel, which acts as the attorney for all House offices.

The employment counsel negotiated a deal for taxpayers to give $48,395 — five additional months’ salary — to the female aide, who left her job after three months. She didn’t pursue the hostile workplace complaint further.

“On the advice of House Employment Counsel, I provided a severance package to a former employee who resigned. The severance did not involve the Office of Compliance and at no time was any allegation of sexual harassment made, and no sexual harassment occurred,” Rep. Grijalva stated to The Washington Times.

“Under the terms of the agreement, had there been an allegation of sexual harassment, the employee would have been free to report it. Regrettably, for me to provide any further details on this matter would violate the agreement,” Grijalva added.

 That makes two new Capitol Hill Democrats that are now embroiled in misconduct scandals this week.

Rep. Al Green (D-TX) is under fire following reports he had sex with a drug-addicted staffer and then sued her after she threatened to go public with the encounter. Green is one of the loudest voices on Capitol Hill calling for President Trump to be impeached.

Obama Pentagon’s Coverup of ‘Bacha Bazi’ Child Rape by Afghan Soldiers


Under Obama, the Pentagon attempted to block an independent report on child sex abuse and rape of young boys among Afghan soldiers and police.  Despite 93 congressmen requesting this document in 2015, it is still classified by the Pentagon.  A high-level Afghan ​police official said that the practice of “bacha bazi”, which is dressing young boys like women and making them dance and perform sex acts, no longer exists.  However, the practice is actually growing, and local officials do nothing about it.  Two years ago, while Obama was President, reports surfaced about US Marines being ordered to ignore child abuse by Afghan police officers, but the reports were marked classified by the Pentagon to prevent public knowledge of them. -GEG

If the Democrats had any sense left that they were morally superior to Republicans, this report is sure to squash what remains of it.

 According to reports, the Obama Pentagon attempted to block an independent report on child sex among Afghan Forces. 

Washington Post reports:

The Pentagon tried to block an independent assessment of child sex abuse crimes committed by Afghan soldiers and police, instead insisting on the creation of its own report offering a far less authoritative review of human rights violations perpetrated by U.S. allies, according to an aide to Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.). […]

But the results of SIGAR’s unreleased inquiry, which was requested by 93 members of Congress in 2015, remains classified at the Pentagon’s direction, raising questions about the military’s transparency and the extent to which it is complying with laws meant to curb such abuse.

The Pentagon responded with “resistance” when Congress tapped SIGAR to conduct the probe, said Tim Rieser, an aide to Leahy, vice chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee whose namesake legislation, known as the Leahy Law, requires the U.S. military to halt assistance to foreign military units found to have committed gross human rights violations.

Instead, senior Pentagon officials argued that SIGAR, which since 2009 has produced dozens of reports exposing corruption within the Afghan government and incompetence among Afghan security forces, lacked the jurisdiction for this particular task, Rieser said.

“Afghan security personnel have been known to recruit young boys as servants, sometimes to use for sex. There is a broader practice in Afghan society to dress some boys as women and have them dance at gatherings. Known as bacha bazi, it was banned under the Taliban but revived after the U.S. invasion in 2001,” reports Alex Horton.

The Pentagon reportedly reviewed 16 allegations between 2010 to 2016. Horton says this number is unlikely to be accurate because of irregularities in reporting procedures and “an overall lack of unified guidance on reporting and record keeping relating to child sexual abuse.”

 Two years ago, reports surfaced about U.S. Marines being ordered to ignore child abuse by Afghan police officers.

Decline in ​NFL Popularity ​Expected to Cost TV Networks $500​-Million this Season

P​rotests against the National Anthem by NFL players have contributed to the organization’s loss of one-million viewers compared to 2016.  According to OKTC’s Clay Travis, the four networks that carry the NFL ​(CBS, ESPN, Fox,​ and NBC)​ are on pace to lose $500-million this season compared to last year due to the ratings slide. The top reason for the loss is “cord-cutting” which is cancelling subscriptions to multi-channel television services on cable. -GEG​

Amid the growing cord-cutting trend and continued backlash from the divisive national anthem protests, the NFL has lost around 1 million viewers since 2016 and the ratings have declined by over 15% since 2015. So how much is the loss in viewership costing the league and its television partners?

Outkick the Coverage crunched the numbers, and they aren’t pretty. According to OKTC’s Clay Travis, the four networks that carry the NFL — CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC — are on pace to lose $500 million this season compared to last year due to the ratings slide.

As The Daily Wire reported last week, the NFL lost around 1 million viewers from 2016 alone, down from 15.9 million viewers on average to 14.9 million, an over 6% decline. From the 2015 to the 2016 season, the NFL’s viewership dropped a dramatic 9% during the regular season and 6% during the playoffs from the previous year.

In an analysis published in late October, Forbes described the rather grim trend the NFL is facing on the ratings front. “The league is now down about three million viewers per game from 2013 and 2014,” Forbes reports. “When the specific teams appearing, the scope of the telecast and the week of the season are taken into account, the decline is even more dramatic: more than four million viewers, or in excess of 20%.”

Israeli Official Says​ Few American​ Jews Fight for ​Their Country

Israel: Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely, during a recent TV interview, complained that American Jews do not sufficiently support the pro-war policies of Israel because they don’t know what it is like to be attacked by their enemies.  She referred to American Jews as “people that never send their children to fight for their country.  Most of the Jews don’t have children serving as soldiers, going to the Marines, going to Afghanistan, or to Iraq. Most of them are having quite convenient lives…” Hotovely was reprimanded for this statement by Prime Minister ​Netanyahu and forced to apologize for it – not because it is untrue but because it is objectionable. Gilad Atzmon, an anti-war activist who was born in Israel, says that Jews being reluctant to fight American wars does not fit well with the fact that Americans have been fighting Israeli wars for may years. -GEG​

(LONDON) – Israel’s deputy foreign minister Tzipi Hotovely attacked U.S. Jewry in an interview with i24 News on Wednesday.

Hotovely referred to American Jews as “people that never send their children to fight for their country, most of the Jews don’t have children serving as soldiers, going to the Marines, going to Afghanistan, or to Iraq. Most of them are having quite convenient lives…” (watch VIDEO below)

PM Netanyahu was very quick to condemn his deputy minister. This is understandable, after all Jews being reluctant to fight American wars doesn’t fit nicely with the embarrassing fact that America has been fighting Israeli wars for a while.

The pro-war Neocon school is largely a Zionist gathering and the Jewish American Lobby has been pushing for the escalation of immoral interventionist conflicts in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Iran.

Haaretz writes that “the U.S. military stopped recording the religion of recruits decades ago, but until then Jews served in slightly greater proportion than their percentage in the general population.”

I thought it would be fascinating to find out what the current figures are. As such, it seems Haaretz didn’t do its homework. Apparently, there is a record available of faiths within the USA military.

It reveals that out of the 1,300,000 American soldiers, only 4,515 are Jewish. Jews make only 0.3% of the American military.

Former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino Threatens to Expose Clinton Crimes

Dan Bongino, a former Secret Service agent and Fox News host, got into a Twitter feud with Nick Merrill, and he said that Hillary Clinton is fighting for relevance to maintain her political clout in order to keep her crimes buried.  Bongino threatened to spill the beans on Bill Clinton’s 26 trips to ‘Orgy Island’ with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.  This video explores what Bongino may be able to prove. If so, his life may be in peril because the Clinton body count reportedly includes 12 former bodyguards who died during or after their service with the Clintons. -GEG​




Former Marine Colonel Runs Write-In Campaign to Split and Steal Votes from Roy Moore

Alabama: Retired Marine Colonel, Lee Busby, plans to run as a write-in candidate in an attempt to try and stop Judge Roy Moore from reaching the United States Senate.  Roy Moore has been accused of sexual misconduct with young girls 40 years ago.  Busby served in the Marine Corps for 31 years and served as an aide to White House Chief of Staff John Kelley during his last tour of duty.  He also is known for his strong opposition to President Trump.  Bubsy has no campaign website or any serious campaign ground-game but plans to rely on social media.  He will emphasize his experience as a military leader, and his background as an investment banker, defense contractor, and entrepreneur.  It is believed that his backers are anxious, not to get him elected, but to draw away enough votes to prevent Moore’s election. -GEG

Lee Busby, a retired Marine colonel and former aide to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, announced on Monday that he will launch a last-minute write-in campaign against Republican nominee Alabama Judge Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones.

Lee Busby argued that the allegations of sexual misconduct against Roy Moore created an opening for an establishment, centrist candidate to launch a third-party run for the December 12 Alabama Senate race.

Busby said, “I think you can flip this thing. If this were a military operation, the left flank and the right flank are heavily guarded. I think that gives you an opportunity to run straight up the middle.”

Busby’s write-in campaign mirrors Evan McMullin’s third party bid in the 2016 presidential election. McMullin, nicknamed “McMuffin” by Trump supporters, admitted during the presidential election that if he could not stop Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump from being elected president, he would be “happy” just stopping Trump from becoming the 45th president.

 McMullin, a former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operations officer and Goldman Sachs employee, announced a “Never-Trump” candidacy to upset the election in favor of Hillary Clinton by appealing to Mormon voters in Utah, Arizona, and Idaho. His establishment insurgency failed to win any electoral votes and failed to win Utah, which features a strong Mormon voting base.

Bubsy has no campaign website or any serious campaign ground-game. The former aide to John Kelly hopes to rely on social media to spread the word about his campaign. Identifying himself as an Independent candidate, Bubsy, who retired from the Marine Corps in 2013, intends to emphasize his experience as a military leader, as well as his background as an investment banker, defense contractor, and entrepreneur.

The third-party candidate contends that both Moore and Jones should not serve in the U.S. Senate.

“I just don’t believe that either one of them are qualified to be in the U.S. Senate,” Busby argued.

He cites the sexual allegations against Moore as having “created enough distaste in my mind” to rule out support for the Republican nominee. He lists Democrat candidate Jones’ extreme abortion positions as disqualifying for Alabama voters.

However, Busby does admit to attending a fundraiser for Jones, though he denies ever donating to the Democrat candidate.

A Raycom News Network survey found that only three percent of Alabamians plan to vote for a write-in candidate for the Alabama Senate race.

A recent poll revealed that Roy Moore has a seven-point lead over Jones.
