Prayer Helps Family Escape Raging California Wildfire

The Stream - Sun, 11/11/2018 - 22:43

As fires rage on in California, jarring footage was captured of a woman and her family praying as they drove through the blaze, hoping to come out alive.

"Heavenly Father, please help us," Brynn Chatfield said aloud as she and her family drove through a California fire, both sides of the road engulfed in flames. "Please help us to be safe. I am thankful for Jeremy and his willingness to be brave."

Chatfield -- who was forced to evacuate her hometown of Paradise, California -- posted her video on Facebook, which has since gone viral. She did make it out OK, writing on social media that she is currently safe.

"I feel very vulnerable posting this but I feel I should. My hometown of Paradise is on fire. My family is evacuated and safe. Not all my friends are safe. It's very surreal. Things always work out, but the unknown is a little scary," Chatfield wrote on her Facebook account.

The Camp Fire has wrecked the town of Paradise, located approximately 180 miles northeast of San Francisco, California's most destructive fire on record, in terms of destroyed property. Camp Fire, along with the Woolsey Fire in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, has burned down 6,713 structures and killed at least 23 people.

There is no indication that the fires will subside anytime soon. The Camp Fire is listed as 25 percent contained on Sunday, and the Woolsey fire is listed only 10 percent contained.

The death toll is expected to rise, as there are another 110 people presumed missing in fire-devastated areas.

The rise in California wildfires comes as President Donald Trump has warned state leaders that he may withhold federal funds if they do not reform its forest management. Trump again bemoaned about proper forest management in a tweet Sunday morning.

With proper Forest Management, we can stop the devastation constantly going on in California. Get Smart!

The Man Who Wants the Courts to Make Him 20 Years Younger

The Stream - Sun, 11/11/2018 - 22:00

You knew it had to happen sooner or later. After all, if a biological, chromosomal male who identifies as female can have his birth certificate changed to female, why can't a 69-year-old man who feels like he's 49 have his age legally changed?

Why is one biological reality -- namely, sex -- changeable, while another biological reality -- namely, age -- not changeable? And haven't we heard for years that age is just a number? Why not change the number, especially when numbers do matter when it comes to age?

After all, there is the age when you can drive or drink or marry or vote. Then there's the age when you get pension for retirement. Why not adjust the age to correspond with how you feel? Isn't this only "logical," given the social climate of the day?

The Madness

As I pointed out in 2016, if perception is substituted for reality, there is no end to the social madness that follows.

You do not just have a man being named Woman of the Year.

You do not just have a white woman who identifies as black.

You have a father of 7 who identifies as a 6-year-old girl.

You have a man who identifies as a dog named "Boomer."

You have a young lady who believes she is a cat trapped in a woman's body.

You have a man who has his ears removed because he identifies as a parrot.

You have a man who changed his identity to female but who has now had "her ears and nose REMOVED to transform into a ‘dragon lady’ with scales, a forked tongue and a horned skull."

And now, you have a man who not only identifies as 20 years younger but who wants the court to change his age so he won't have to "lie" on social media about his age. Why not?

Meet Emile Ratelband

As reported in the Telegraph, "Emile Ratelband, 69, argues that if transgender people are allowed to change sex, he should be allowed to change his date of birth because doctors said he has the body of a 45-year-old."

In his own words, "I have done a check-up and what does it show? My biological age is 45 years.

"When I’m 69, I am limited. If I’m 49, then I can buy a new house, drive a different car. I can take up more work.

"When I’m on Tinder and it say I’m 69, I don’t get an answer. When I’m 49, with the face I have, I will be in a luxurious position."

And what did the judge have to say?

"The judge expressed some skepticism but also noted that changing the sex on a birth certificate, as transgender people have the right to do, once was impossible and is now allowed."

Precisely so!

As NPR explains, "Transgender people around the world have fought long legal battles for the right to change their birth certificates to match their gender identity. Where that is permitted, the legal requirements vary; in the Netherlands, transgender people need a statement from an expert affirming that they have a 'permanent conviction' that their gender does not match what is on their birth certificates, and that they understand the repercussions of their decision."

Ratelband, already the father of 7 but wanting to have more children through surrogate mothers, appears to have a "permanent conviction" to the point that, "he told the court he would be happy to delay his pension benefits for 20 years, as a logical extension of his age change."

So, Why Not?

So, why not?

After all, the Denver Post reported this week that, "Colorado residents who do not identify as male or female will be allowed to choose X as the symbol to represent their gender on their driver's licenses when an emergency rule goes into effect this month."

And a letter signed by 1,600 scientists made clear that, when it comes to biological sex, scientific fact must give way to perceptions and feelings.

So, not only do these scientists strangely claim that, "There are no genetic tests that can unambiguously determine gender, or even sex."

But they also state that "even if such tests existed, it would be unconscionable to use the pretext of science to enact policies that overrule the lived experience of people's own gender identities."

Put another way, who cares about science -- about verifiable facts and data -- when you have feelings and perceptions?

My Perception, My Reality

Since I radically changed my diet in August, 2014, I have literally felt that I am getting younger ever year. It's really quite remarkable.

I believe my predicted life expectancy has increased dramatically as well, which makes me feel younger still.

But the reality is that I was born in 1955, and the only way to change my legal age is to change my birth certificate, which means tampering with reality.

It's the same with changing one's biological and chromosomal sex. (As always, I'm not referring here to the difficult and sometimes ambiguous situation in which intersex individuals find themselves. I'm referring to indisputable biological and chromosomal cases.)

To change one's sex (or age) is to change reality. No amount of compassion for a struggling man or woman merits tampering with that.

Images of Miscarried 14-Week Baby Goes Viral, Saves Two Lives From Abortion

Nancy Flory Images of Miscarried 14-Week Baby Goes Viral, Saves Two Lives From Abortion

Sharran Sutherland's tenth pregnancy was going well. Early ultrasound images showed a healthy baby and placenta. At 11 weeks, Sutherland saw her baby's heartbeat blinking on the screen. But a couple of weeks later, it was gone.

Sutherland's doctor didn't want her to miscarry the baby at home. She could hemorrhage. The doctor advised a dilation and curettage, or D&C. But she knew what that meant. "I was not okay with that," she told The Stream in an interview.

"So, I said, 'No, I want to deliver my baby.'"

The House Flips. But Can House Dems Help But Flip Their Lids?

John Zmirak The House Flips. But Can House Dems Help But Flip Their Lids?

It would have been a minor miracle if the Republicans had kept the House of Representatives in this election. Not just because historical trends show that in virtually every mid-term election, the president's party suffers. Remember that two years after Barack Obama was elected president -- redeeming America from its historic sins, for millions of deluded post-Christian suburbanites -- his own party lost 63 seats, more than twice as many as Donald Trump's GOP lost Tuesday night.

Got a Kid? Want a Kid? Buy, Sell or Trade

Jennifer Hartline Got a Kid? Want a Kid? Buy, Sell or Trade

A history-making scientific experiment that allowed two women in Texas to carry the same child before birth. A woman who had a girl, but wanted a boy, so she asked if anyone would swap kids with her.

And the next envelope is pushed, and the line is moved farther back, and the question of what is morally right is shouted down with charges of judgment and intolerance. We are God now. We decide what is right, and we do what pleases us.

Sam Donaldson: Trump’s ‘Small Base’ Is Not Going to Run This Country --- ‘And They Never Will’

Breitbart News - Sun, 11/11/2018 - 18:16
Sunday on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” former ABC News anchor Sam Donaldson declared President Donald Trump’s “small base” of voters was “not going to run this country.” Donaldson said, “Well, the president seems to believe that if he wants to do something, it should be done, Constitution aside, Congress aside, certainly other than his base the American people aside. And it doesn’t work that way. And he’s not going to get away with it.” He continued, “I think it ends with a change in I hope the president’s attitude. I believe in forgiveness and redemption of sin. But it’s going to change because he and people who enable him to do what he’s trying to do and has done so far are not going to be able to prevail.” He added, “His small base — and I think they’re a minority who believe if the Nazis and the protesters are on both sides that there are good people on both sides. His small base is not going to run this country. They don’t now and they never will.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

Maxine Waters: GOP Is Scared of a 'Strong, Black Woman' Like Me in Leadership

Breitbart News - Sun, 11/11/2018 - 18:13
Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said the Republican Party was scared of her being the chair of the Financial Services Committee because she is a “strong, black woman.” When asked about a Republican congressman’s comments saying she would harass President Donald Trump with investigations, Waters said, “That’s the opposition talking about what would happen if this strong, black woman Maxine Waters is the chair of the Financial Services Committee. They’ve never seen anybody like me before. There’s never been a woman in the history of this country that’s been the chairperson of the Financial Services Committee, and certainly never a black woman. And so they send out these dog whistles to their constituents to get them fired up about the possibility of what Maxine Waters might do.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN
