2 men charged in Amanda Blackburn murder

“INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Two men were arrested and charged for the murder of Amanda Blackburn, the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office announced Monday.

“Larry Jo Taylor Jr., 18, and Jalen Watson, 21, have been charged with murder and additional felonies related to burglaries at three other homes Nov. 10, the morning Blackburn, a 28-year-old pregnant wife of an Indianapolis pastor, was shot in a home invasion.

“Davey Blackburn, Amanda Blackburn’s husband, returned home from the gym to find his wife face down in blood on the living room floor, the probable cause affidavit states.

“According to the probable cause affidavit, Taylor, Watson and a third person are accused of burglarizing two homes before entering Blackburn’s house…”

“On Monday, Davey released a statement. He shared the three things he hopes to see in the weeks and months to come:

“Though it does not undo the pain we are feeling, I was extremely relieved to get the news of the arrest made last night of Amanda’s killer. The investigators have assured me they have a solidly-built case to ensure justice is levied and the process is expedited. The family and I couldn’t be more thankful for the level of compassion and professionalism the IMPD and investigators have shown us through the last couple of weeks. My hope is for three things in the weeks and months to come:

“That the court system would have wisdom on how to prosecute this man, so that no one else endures the pain Amanda and our family have had to endure because of his actions.

“That through all of this and although there will be great consequences for his actions, he would become truly sorry for what he has done and would even begin to experience the life-transforming power of the Grace and Mercy of Jesus Christ.

“That Jesus would give me and our family a heart of forgiveness.

“Though everything inside of me wants to hate, be angry, and slip into despair I choose the route of forgiveness, grace and hope. If there is one thing I’ve learned from Amanda in the 10 years we were together, it’s this: Choosing to let my emotions drive my decisions is recipe for a hopeless and fruitless life. Today I am deciding to love, not hate. Today I am deciding to extend forgiveness, not bitterness. Today I am deciding to hope, not despair. By Jesus’ power at work within us, the best is STILL yet to come. Even when I don’t see it, I believe it to be true.”

Fethullah Gülen and the ISIS Death Cult


Fethullah Gülen and the ISIS Death Cult

POLITICO – DEEP DIVE – WashPost A1, above fold, “Confronting the ‘Caliphate'” series, “ISIS’s army of propagandists: A MACABRE MACHINE WITH GLOBAL REACH — Professional media ’emirs’ paid more than fighters,” by Greg Miller and Souad Mekhennet in Rabat, Morocco: Prisoners and defectors “described … a medieval reality show. Camera crews fan out across the caliphate every day, their ubiquitous presence distorting the events … Battle scenes and public beheadings are so scripted and staged that fighters and executioners often perform multiple takes and read their lines from cue cards.”

“However, it must be clearly stated that not only do several factions of the Turkish public feel betrayed and embarrassed by their prime minister, they also do not trust Gülen and consider him to be an ever-treacherous religious huckster, opportunist, and an under-cover CIA agent who covertly is in the toxic embrace of the Zionists. It is the US and her allies, they claim, that have aided and abetted engagement of high level crimes, which will eventually lead to the destruction of the sovereignty of the Turkish nation…” Read more: Fethullah Gülen: Islamic leader or western agent?: http://5pillarsuk.com/2014/01/13/fethullah-gulen-islamic-leader-or-western-agent/

Anti-Christian revolutionaries beheaded 2,639 people in Paris during the French Revolution


Anti-Christian revolutionaries beheaded 2,639 people in Paris during the French Revolution

Can you image Islamic jihadists beheading 2,639 people in the streets of Paris?

The fact is, anti-Christian revolutionaries beheaded 2,639 people in Paris during the French Revolution, during the so-called Reign of Terror…

“The dictatorship imposed by the Committee of Public Safety during the Reign of Terror, from 1793 until 1794, established price controls on food and other items, abolished slavery in French colonies abroad, dechristianised society through the creation of a new calendar and the expulsion of religious figures, and secured the borders of the new republic from its enemies. Large numbers of civilians were executed by revolutionary tribunals during the Terror, with estimates ranging from 16,000 to 40,000…”

Source: Wikipedia: The French Revolution – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_Revolution

“The death toll ranged in the tens of thousands, with 16,594 executed by guillotine (2,639 in Paris), and another 25,000 in summary executions across France…”

Freedom of religion, speech, and press, under attack

Dead, white, cisgender males who penned the Bill of Rights

Dead, white, cisgendered males who penned the Bill of Rights

Freedom of religion, speech, and press under attack

Wow. Just in the past few days, my news feed had contained all sorts of articles about attacks upon freedom of religion, speech, and the press.

Attacks upon freedom of religion are, of course, nothing new. Freedom of religion is virtually non-existent in the USA today. But freedom of speech and the press are now coming under assault, too.

I predict freedom of speech and the press will go the way of freedom of religion. Meaning: These freedoms will virtually disappear, too.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” (First Amendment)

Transgender man identifies as female again in order to avoid men’s prison

Connor MacCalister or Tanisha Hopkins

Connor MacCalister or Tanisha Hopkins

Transgender man identifies as female again in order to avoid men’s prison

This is a case we won’t be hearing about in the national 24 hour nonstop news media cycle.

I’ve been following this case since it happened and the media, from the moment it happened until today, has gone from she, to he, back to she again when referring to Connor MacCalister.

Now that MacCalister has pleaded guilty to the brutal crime, she has decided to identify as female. No doubt to avoid being sent to a men’s prison. Upon arrest MacCalister requested to be housed in the women’s section of the county jail.

This case runs counter to the narrative we are constantly subjected to.

Here is a case wherein…

The transgender is a real problem in the community.

The transgender is a violent — murderous — criminal.

The transgender is severely mentally ill.

The transgender is not treated as the sex he identifies as but the opposite, and that’s okay.

As contrary to the narrative as this case is, you will probably never hear about it.

Connor MacCalister, who was charged with randomly stabbing a woman in a Maine supermarket, pleaded guilty to murder today

“MacCalister is a transgender man, formerly known as Tanisha Hopkins. However in court on Thursday, MacCalister asked to be referred to as a woman.

“MacCalister was born a woman and has been identifying as a male. She has stopped taking hormones and is identifying as a woman again.

“She entered the plea in York County Superior Court…”

5 Month-Old Girl Shot and Killed in Cleveland

Aavielle Wakefield

Aavielle Wakefield

Aavielle Wakefield, a 5-month-old girl, died in a shooting Thursday on Cleveland’s east side.

There is no national outrage. President Obama will not be speaking about it. There is no Twitter hashtag campaign. And Black Lives Matter has no interest in it.

Only her family, their friends and neighbors, and local officials are concerned about the violent death of little Aavielle Wakefield. They know she’s not the first young victim of violence in their city, and they know she’s not the last. Although they would very much like for her to be the last.
