A Good Morning Britain guest who lives life as both a man and a woman explained on the show how they don’t know who they will be until they wake up each morning.

Tabitha/Tate Downs-King, 20, identifies as gender fluid, meaning one day she will be Tabitha – as she was for her appearance on the daytime show – and another, Tate.

Tabitha – who was born biologically female – explained to presenters Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid that she dresses according to which gender she identifies as on any given day.   Continue reading “Piers Morgan clashes with gender fluid guest”

Right now, Earth is passing through the tail of debris left behind by the comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner, which sounds scary, but is actually awesome, because it brings us the spectacular Draconid meteor shower, peaking on October 7 and 8.

Most years the Draconids are quite mild, but every few years the meteor shower unexpectedly bursts into storm. During the 2011 Draconid shower, more than 600 meteors per hour were visible in the sky, despite a bright Moon at the time.   Continue reading “Don’t Miss The Draconid Meteor Shower Peaking This Weekend”

The Daily Sheeple – by Alex Thomas

In a Thursday op-ed for the establishment New York Times, supposed conservative Bret Stephens called for the full on repeal of the Second Amendment in the wake of the largest mass shooting in American history.

Stephens, who is also paid by MSNBC to appear on television to discredit actual conservatives, started out his piece by claiming that he “never understood the conservative fetish for the Second Amendment,” a clue that perhaps he never really was a conservative in the first place.   Continue reading “Conservative New York Times Columnist Calls For Repealing The Second Amendment”

The Food and Drug Administration issued a stern warning letter to a Massachusetts bakery for, among other things, listing “love” as an ingredient in their granola.

The FDA warned the Nashoba Brook Bakery that the labelled ingredient “love” in their Nashoba Granola “is not a common or usual name of an ingredient, and is considered to be intervening material because it is not part of the common or usual name of the ingredient”.   Continue reading “FDA issues warning to bakery for including ‘love’ as an ingredient”

Fall is a season of harvesting, and festivals to celebrate it are currently taking place all over the world. In Northern Japan, the Wara Art Festival recently rang in the September-October rice season, and it’s a wildly inventive and fun way to repurpose rice straw left over from the harvest.

Wara Art Festival has been taking place in Niigata City since 2008, where it began as a creative collaboration between the city’s tourism division and the Musashino Art University. Rice straw was once widely used in Japan to produce various goods, such as tatami mats, but has now been replaced by wood and plastic in most instances. The students of Musashino worked together to fill the fields of Niigata with giant animal sculptures made of bound rice straw, and they’ve been doing it every year since then.

Detroit, MI — In a seemingly unprecedented violation of rights, a case out of Detroit, Michigan should worry even the most stringent pro-vaccine advocates. A mother has been sentenced to jail for failing to have her 9-year-old son vaccinated.

While the Free Thought Project has reported on instances of children being denied public services, like school, for not vaccinating their children, the idea that someone is now being thrown in jail for choosing to abstain from vaccination is chilling.

“I would rather sit behind bars standing up for what I believe in, than giving in to something I strongly don’t believe in,” said Rebecca Bredow last week when given the ultimatum—vaccinate your son or go to jail.   Continue reading “It Begins: Detroit Mother Sentenced to Jail for Not Vaccinating Her Son”

The New American – by C Mitchel Shaw

The communists in the Antifa crowd are planning to begin a revolution in America on Saturday, November 4 — almost exactly 100 years after the Bolshevik Revolution that took Russia out of the frying pan of Tsarist rule and into the fire of communist totalitarianism. While some see Antifa activists as the modern heroes of anti-Fascism — fighting against racism, sexism, and a litany of other “isms” — and others see them merely as the snowflake crowd of spoiled brats demanding free everything, the reality is that Antifa is one tool in the communists’ toolbox to bring America to her knees. And Saturday, November 4, 2017, is the day they have chosen for the opening salvo in the American Bolshevik RevolutionContinue reading “Antifa Planning Communist Revolution for America on November 4”
