Bill Gates’ foundation funds permanent contraception for Third World

Bill Gates is the multi-billionaire founder of Microsoft, whose net worth is estimated to be a mind-boggling $79.1 billion.

Via his eponymous foundation, Gates is also famous for his philanthropy, a word that the dictionary defines as “the desire to promote the welfare of others, expressed especially by the generous donation of money to good causes.” Gates’ idea of “good causes” is the reduction of the population of the world, in particular of the Third World, by hook or by crook.

In 2014, news came that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is funding the development of a contraceptive microchip that can be remotely controlled to release hormones that can act as abortifacients — drugs that induce abortion — into a woman’s body for up to 16 years.

Not content with that, the Gates Foundation is now funding the development of a permanent contraception.

Lisa Bourne reports for LifeSiteNews, May 15, 2015, that a new sterilization drug for women will likely be developed and promoted worldwide thanks to a large donation from Bill and Melinda Gates.

Last October, the Gates Foundation gave Oregon gynecologist Jeffrey Jensen $5 million in grant money to develop nonsurgical “permanent contraception.”

Jensen, a gynecologist who’s also a professor at Oregon Health & Science University, said it’s all about putting a stop to unplanned and unwanted pregnancies. “My goal is very simple: to make every pregnancy planned and highly desired,” Jensen said in a report from the Portland Business Journal. He cited a study that he said showed 50 percent of Ugandan women no longer wish to become pregnant, but only two percent have access to “permanent contraception.”

Jensen and his associates have been researching an approach on rhesus monkeys and baboons which uses polidocanol foam, an FDA-approved treatment for varicose veins, which bypasses the cumbersome and lengthy regulatory process. If they are successful the next step will be human trials.

Jensen is working in partnership with Dr. Ov Slayden and Slayden’s team at the Oregon National Primate Research Center (ONPRC), and they have established the Oregon Permanent Contraception Research Center (OPERM).

OPERM will supply grant funding, scientific expertise, a “nonhuman primate animal resource,” lab and procedural infrastructure, and administrative support to chosen investigators for assessing new nonsurgical contraceptive techniques, according to the Oregon University Health and Science website.

This latest multi-million-dollar Gates grant to prevent women from bearing children is just one in a lengthy list. Support for population control from Bill and Melinda Gates, under the guise of philanthropy, goes back year.

The news of the Gates Foundation’s funding for a permanent contraception has drawn condemnation from pro-lifers who warn of eugenics concerns.

Human Life International’s Stephen Phelan said the Gates Foundation’s obsessive focus on promoting contraception in the third world is based upon a faulty notion of what constitutes authentic ‘development,’ as well as highly suspect data about the actual desire for such contraception. “It is difficult to determine what is more outrageous,” Phelan told LifeSiteNews, “the uncritical and fawning ‘news’ reporting on every new Gates Foundation sterilization development grant even as coercive sterilization campaigns continue around the world, or the fact that the Gates Foundation continues to act as if every problem in the developing world can be solved by sterilizing women.”

Phelan also disputed the oft-cited claims that hundreds of millions of women in developing countries desire artificial birth control: “To simply repeat the claims of population control organizations, including the absolutely baseless claim that what 200 million poor women of color want most is the ability to stop becoming pregnant (where exactly did this statistic originate – let’s see the data) is reckless and irresponsible.”

Phelan also questions why foundations like Bill Gates’ focus their philanthropic efforts on population control when “what these women always say they want most when asked is better basic healthcare, education, opportunity, and just governance.”

Methodist minister said caring about aborted babies is idolatry

It’s bad enough that the United Methodist Church supports legalized abortion, but what a Methodist pastor says about those who care about unborn babies should tell us how low the church has sunken.

Steve Ertelt reports for Life News, May 18, 2015, that pro-life advocate Sarah Terzo, who has a knack for documenting the history of the abortion debate and the abortion advocacy movement by posting quotes from pro-abortion activists through the years, posted a new quote that features Methodist Minister John M. Swomley.

Terzo explains that Swomley is an ordained United Methodist minister who was professor of Christian Ethics (!) at St. Paul’s school of Theology in Kansas City, Missouri from 1960 to 1984, president of Americans for Religious Liberty, and a longtime board member and sometimes vice president of the pro-abortion American Civil Liberties Union and chair of its church–state committee.

This is what Methodist Minister John Swomley wrote about pro-life Americans in his 1999 book Compulsory Pregnancy: the War against American Women:

Opponents of abortion in America have attributed to fetal life a sacredness that is actually idolatry… Fetal idolatry denies a woman’s right to control her body, her life, her destiny, all of which must be sacrificed to an embryo or fetus once she is pregnant…

Fetal idolatry shows no mercy. … One of the major critiques of idolatry about unborn life is its lack of concern for the abundant or purposeful life to which all of us should be called. No one of us should be an unwanted child or have to experience emotional abandonment or lack of compassion and love in childhood.”

Nothing much has changed in the United Methodist Church (UMC) since Swomley’s book. As examples:

This is why pro-life Methodists have left the denomination over the last couple of decades and continue to leave the church in droves, causing historic low membership rolls for the church.

John M. Swomley

I did an Internet search for John M. Swomley and discovered that he died on August 16, 2010, in Kansas City, Missouri at age 95 after living with Alzheimer’s for several years.

That’s 95 years more than the millions of aborted unborn babies, whom Swomley dismissed as “idols,” who never had a chance to breathe even one day of air.

Environmental hypocrite Leonardo DiCaprio’s superyacht has huge carbon footprint

That preachy, sanctimonious environmentalist is at it again, oblivious to the irony of him vacationing on a gas-guzzling, CO2 spewing, 450 ft. superyacht, anchored off the Mediterranean coast of France for the annual debauchery known as the Cannes Film Festival.

Here’s Leonardo DiCaprio is his off-camera scruffy Howard Hughes mode:

Leonardo DiCaprio on board superyacht Cannes 2015

Heather Waugh reports for the Daily Mail, May 21, 2014, that the superyacht Rising Sun was custom built in 2004 by Lurssen Yachts and owned by David Geffen, the openly homosexual co-founder of Dreamworks Studio (with director Steven Spielberg), whom former Hollywood powerhouse Michael Ovitz calls the leader of Hollywood’s Gay Mafia. (See “The Gay Mafia and America’s aggressive homosexual agenda“)

The superyacht reportedly cost $200 million to build and is the 11th largest yacht in the world. It offers accommodation for up to 16 guests, a cinema, a wine cellar and is capable of carrying up to 45 crew members on board. It also boasts a basketball court which can be transformed into a helipad if necessary.

Superyacht Rising Sun

Superyacht Rising Sun

So how much of a carbon footprint does Rising Sun make?

In 2014, Leo borrowed another super yacht, the 482-ft. Topaz, to watch the World Cup in Brazil and party in style.

According to Monalisa Gangopadhyay of Liberty Voice, the $680 million Topaz is the 5th largest super yacht in the world, and belongs to billionaire Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the deputy prime minister of the United Arab Emirates. The super yacht is replete with luxurious features that include a top deck jacuzzi, opulent staterooms, a swimming pool, gym, movie theater, a large conference room, and two helipads.

Gangopadhyay notes:

But all these luxuries come at an environmental cost. A super yacht like the Topaz [and Rising Sun] can burn thousands of liters of marine diesel every hour as it cuts an impressive swatch through the ocean waters, leaving behind trails of smoke and tones of carbon dioxide. Additionally, such crafts can use up to 1000 liters a day or more just for its air-conditioning and electrical systems, according to Yacht Carbon Offset, a company that provides carbon offsetting for its seafaring clients.

This is the same Leonardo DiCaprio whom another hypocrite, tax-dodger Secretary of State John Kerry, had invited to talk about conservation at the State Department’s Our Ocean conference on June 17, 2014.

Kerry, who at age 70 went under the knife for major cosmetic surgery, and flicks his tongue like a snake, lauded DiCaprio for having demonstrated continued dedication towards protecting the world’s oceans.

Cat Saved After Fire Comforts Other Animals On The Road To Recovery

kitty2

The Dodo: Russell knows a thing or two about needing a helping hand, but he knows even more about offering one of his own.

The hardy orange cat has been a patient at the Animal Emergency Hospital and Urgent Care Clinic in Raleigh, North Carolina, for more than a year. In early 2014, he was found in the smoldering rubble of a fire that destroyed his home and left with severe burns on his face his body.

kitty3

“He was pretty far gone, and we didn’t know if he would make it,” clinic staffer Alan Wilford told The Dodo. “He has taken a long time, but he has made a miraculous recovery.”

Russell has yet to completely heal from his injuries, which require constant attention, but he’s made the most of his long stay at the clinic. Despite the discomfort that continues to nag him, the friendly feline has taken it upon himself to make life a little more comfortable for other animals in need of care.

“He’s incredibly engaging. He wants to meet all our patients. He just wants to be with them,” Wilford said. “I don’t know if he can sense that other animals are in pain or have stuff going on, but he does seem to have some weird knack for connecting with patients, even when you wouldn’t think they would.”

Staff at the clinic say that Russell is so outgoing with other patients, that he’d spend all day wandering in and out of exam rooms if they didn’t insist he get some much needed rest now and again. But while the cat clearly enjoys making the rounds, it’s more than just for his own benefit.

“I think he helps other animals feel at ease. We’re a clinic, so I’m sure he helps alleviate their stress,” said Wilford. “Most cats are independent and aloof, but he likes to be with other animals. And it’s not all about him. He really enjoys giving companionship to others.”

Whereas many cats might shy away from dogs, Russell isn’t prejudicial with his wonderful bedside manner.

Wilford says there’s a chance Russell will never be well enough to return to his former life, but if that’s the case, he’ll never be lacking in love.

“He’s adopted us,” he said. “He’s a rock star here. Everyone wants to see him, and he just eats it up. I don’t know if he’d like being a normal house cat again, so we’d be happy to keep him as our clinic mascot.”

‘We are in fact losing this war': Senate hears case for new Iraq surge

 

tired soldier

Stars and Stripes: Architects of the 2006 surge in Iraq told the Senate Thursday that the current U.S. war strategy is “fundamentally flawed” and a major increase in troops and operations is needed to halt the growing momentum of the Islamic State.

In the wake of the fall of Ramadi, the United States should deploy up to 20,000 troops for nightly special operations raids and expanded assistance to Iraqi and Kurdish forces on the ground, conservative defense experts who once counseled former President George W. Bush told the Senate Armed Services Committee.

The testimony is part of a Republican push in the Senate for a more robust strategy following last weekend’s loss of Ramadi, capital of Anbar province and one of the bloodiest battlefields for U.S. troops in the 2003-2011 war.

The stunning defeat in Ramadi has raised widespread doubts over the overall U.S. strategy against the Islamic State. The militants continued to gain ground this week, seizing the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra despite nine months of U.S. airstrikes in Iraq and Syria.

“The conceptual plan is fundamentally flawed. We are not only failing, we are in fact losing this war,” said former Army Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Jack Keane. “Moreover, I can say with certainty this strategy will not defeat ISIS,” one of several acronyms for the extremist group

Keane said the U.S. should dramatically ramp up special operations raids similar to the recent mission that killed the Islamic State’s financier in Syria last week. The military could run eight to 10 operations each night, mirroring the tempo of previous surges in Iraq and Afghanistan, he said.

Frederick Kagan, a director at the conservative American Enterprise Institute, said the Islamic State has proven itself on the battlefield with professional leadership, well-executed operations and a complex strategy. Regaining the momentum will now require 15,000 to 20,000 U.S. troops on the ground in Iraq, he said. “I think anything less than that is simply not serious,” he said.

The troops could guide Iraqi and Kurdish ground forces, direct airstrikes and work with Sunni tribal groups in Anbar to bring them more effectively into the fight, according to the testimony.

A surge would focus on assistance and not involve American ground fighting as in the earlier war, Kagan said. “We are not anticipating putting American brigades and having them clear house by house as we have previously done,” he said.

In 2006, Keane and Kagan both advised Bush to drastically increase troops in Iraq when it became clear the U.S. strategy was failing to curb a bloody insurgency, much of it centered in Anbar.

At the time military brass advised against the increase and maintained the strategy was working. But Bush replaced his defense secretary and his Iraq commander, and sent 30,000 additional troops in a controversial move that eventually quelled violence.

Now, the Obama administration appears to be facing its own crisis in a new Iraq war. It entered Iraq in August following an Islamic State offensive last summer that rolled across nearly a third of the country. The administration has relied on airstrikes and training of local forces, which have so far failed to break the back of the Islamic State.

For weeks, officials had downplayed the strategic importance of Ramadi. Instead they maintained the Islamic State was on the defensive after the government regained territory north of Baghdad, including Saddam Hussein’s hometown of Tikrit.

But the administration acknowledged on Wednesday that the U.S-backed Iraq forces were stunned by the defeat over the weekend.

Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., chairman of the Armed Services Committee, and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who sits on the committee, took to the chamber floor on Wednesday to call for a new surge similar to the one ordered by Bush.

For Google Maps, Obama is a racist, traitor and usurper

My friend Mark S. McGrew alerted me to a FASCINATING phenomenon on Google Maps.

If you go to Google Maps and type in the following words in the search bar, you’ll get the White House as the result each time:

  • racist Washington D. C.
  • traitor Washington D.C.
  • treason Washington D.C.
  • usurper Washington D.C.
  • Muslim nigger Washington D.C.

It is noteworthy that in the case of the search words “traitor Washington, D.C.,” “treason Washington D.C.” and usurper Washington D.C.,” the Supreme Court is below the White House in search results.

Here are screenshots I took of each search result, with the time and date when I took the screenshot in the lower right corner. I painted red rectangles around the search words. I also painted over my personal information.

The explanation can’t be that Google Maps has a glitch and shows the White House for any and all “Washington D.C.” searches because I tested it by typing in “dogs Washington D.C.” and “cars Washington D.C.,” but the search results are not the White House, as you can in the screen shots I took below:
