Biden’s Sandy Hook Claim Called ‘Lie’ by Brother of Shooting Victim

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign recently released a new video that shows Biden saying that he met with every one of the parents after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting back in Dec of 2012.  He says “ I think I met  with every one of the parents and families of those who were lost.” After the video was released it was quickly challenged by the brother of one of the victims.

JT Lewis, 19, whose 6 yr old brother Jessie was one of the students killed in the attack.  Lewis wrote on Twitter, “ This is a lie. Obama came to Sandy Hook and met with every family, Joe Biden DID NOT.”  He also tweeted, “ In fact, my family was not allowed on Air Force One because we refused to support Obama/Biden gun control efforts.”  Lewis also called out Biden for saying he was the Vice President at the time of the 2018 Parkland, Florida shooting, Biden left office in 2017.

Biden 76, has suffered a number of memory lapses during his campaign like getting names mixed up, dates wrong etc, When he was confronted with these errors he replied, “ The details are irrelevant  in terms of decision making.”

 

James Younger, 7 to have Texas judge decide fate amid parents’ gender transition battle: Abbott weighs in 

A father in Texas has now petitioned the court for sole custody of his twin boys, James and Jude. It is an effort to prevent their mother, a pediatrician named Dr. Anne Georgulas, from proceeding with gender transition therapy.  Georgulas says their son is transgender and identifies as a girl, likes to wear dresses and goes by the name ‘Luna’.  The father, Jeff Younger, believes the opposite and is arguing that James is a normal, happy boy and a medical transition is not in his best interest.

James’ mom is divorced from Jeff Younger and initially filed a petition for joint conservatorship which required Younger to affirm his son’s identity by calling him ‘Luna’. In response, younger filed for sole custody, but on Monday a jury returned a verdict in favor of Georgulas.  The case has now captured the attention of conservatives nationwide, even Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has weighed in. Abbott said in a Tweet, “ FYI the matter of 7 yr old James Younger is being looked into by Texas Attorney’s office and the Texas Dept. of Family and Protective Services.”

 

House Passes Bill Making Animal Cruelty A Federal Felony

On Tuesday the House of Representatives unanimously passed a bill that would make certain types of animal cruelty a federal felony.  It is called PACT or Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act. “ This bill sends a clear message that our society does not accept cruelty against animals,” said Democrat Rep. Ted Deutch of Florida, who introduced the bill.

Rep. Vern Buchanan praised the bill with his tweet, “The torture of innocent animals is abhorrent and should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.” In a response to the legislation, Pro-Life group, March For Life tweeted that the bill was good news for animal lovers and then asked Nancy Pelosi to “Show the same respect and offer protection for unborn humans and those born alive after abortion.”  Pelosi and the Democrats have blocked a vote on the Born Alive Act more than 80 times.

 

Uyghurs Tortured and Raped in China’s Re-Education Camps, Former Detainee Reveals 

Uyghurs, Tibetans and Falun Gong practitioners being held in China’s ‘re-education’ camps and prisons are being tortured and raped. A former detainee from Xinjiang has revealed eye witness accounts of the horrible conditions she endured in one of these camps. Sayragul Sauytbay, 43, said she witnessed many human rights abuses during her time in a facility between November 2017 and March 2018. Sauytbay is a Muslim and an Uyghur and one of at least 1 million Uyghurs and other ethnic minorities who are being detained in re-education camps. Beijing says the camps are to ‘educate and transform’ those the CCP deems at risk of the ‘three evil forces’ of ‘extremism, separatism, and terrorism’.

Sauytbay told of people receiving electric shocks, fingernails pulled out, skin flayings, having to sit on chairs with nails, being injected with drugs, food, and sleep deprivation, beatings, not being able to use the toilet and instances where young women are gang-raped and others made to watch.

She said people are arrested and sent to these camps for things like talking on the phone to someone overseas, growing a beard, traveling to a foreign country or attending a religious gathering.

According to Minghui.org which is an international website that regularly reports on the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China, reported that the CCP is still unlawfully arresting and detaining practitioners all over China. The website reported that many Falun Gong practitioners are unfairly sentenced to prison, tortured,  subjected to brainwashing and all of their belongings being confiscated by the police.  These latest reports from China should let the world see plainly that the CCP is still as ruthless as ever and the world needs to continue to stand up and demand an end to China’s ongoing persecution of its citizens.
