Bakersfield, California: Judge David Lampe ruled against forcing Cathy Miller, owner of Tasteries Bakery, to bake a cake for a lesbian couple, because it would violate her First Amendment rights. However, he said that, if the couple wanted to buy an already-made cake, Miller would be required to sell it to them to comply with the state’s anti-discrimination law.
Oregon: Michale Wright, who was convicted of attempted robbery, has supposedly been transitioned enough from male to “female” by hormone treatments that “she” is being moved from the men’s prison to the women’s prison. Oregon’s Department of Corrections granted Wright’s request for hormone treatment after he filed a lawsuit. It is unknown if the state also will pay for his requested orchiectomy to remove his testicles. Oregon’s Corrections Department has 55 transgender or intersex inmates in custody.
Israel has been bombing Syria for years in an effort to provoke war, and they targeted a city near Damascus that is said to be a research facility related to chemical weapons. Israel’s assault follows on the heels of allegations of a chemical attack on Syrian citizens. In its pursuit of regime change in Syria, Israel has given covert support to al-Qaeda linked groups. This latest attack is part of what has developed into an open state of war between Israel, Syria, and Syria’s Iranian allied forces.
A new chemical attack against Syrian citizens has been blamed on Syrian President Assad. Predictably, the US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, is blaming Assad and calling for war before an independent investigation of the event can be conducted. It is highly suspicious that the medics at the scene of the supposed gas attack are the ‘White Helmets’ who are linked to al Qaeda and who previously have been exposed staging fake attacks and providing actors to play the role of victims.
