Michael Flynn versus QAnon.

Former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn calls for one religion in America (MSN)

At a three-day conference in San Antonio, Texas, for the "ReAwaken America" tour, former national security adviser and keynote speaker Michael Flynn called for Christianity to become the singular religion of the United States.

"If we are going to have one nation under God, which we must, we have to have one religion. One nation under God, and one religion under God," said Flynn, who recently talked about his Christian faith in an effort to refute QAnon claims that he worships Satan.

Emphasis added.

Not that I'm with QAnon, but that's just what a Satanist would say.

Just a little more of the hypocritical same thing.

U.S. Capitol Rioter Seeks Asylum in Belarus

U.S. Capitol Rioter Seeks Asylum in Belarus (Moscow Times)

A man on the FBI’s Most Wanted List for allegedly attacking police during the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot is now seeking asylum in Belarus, the ex-Soviet country’s state-run television reported Sunday.

Evan Neumann, 48, is wanted in the United States on charges of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, as well as for assaulting, resisting and obstructing law enforcement during civil disorder. Neumann denies the charges as “unfounded.”

Neumann sold his California home in spring and was thought to have moved to Ukraine to evade arrest, ABC News reported this summer.

“Judging by his story, [Neumann] is the same type of simple American whose shops were burned by Black Lives Matter activists,” a Belarus 1 TV channel presenter said, echoing a common talking point on Russian state television.

Note: Belarus is the only former Soviet republic that is an old style Communist dictatorship.

Biden looking "crestfallen"? (Goebbels level propaganda)

Washington Post and New York Times websites featured headlines are about the Virginia governor's race.

For the New York Daily News it's the NYC mayor's race.

For the the New York Post (won't link but easy to find if you want):

Biden looks crestfallen after Youngkin’s crushing Virginia victory

Illustrated thus:


Honest headline: Biden looking tired after a long plane trip

I'ts not even clear he knew about the Virginia outcome when that picture was snapped.

Elon Musk says he will sell Tesla shares to help world hunger – if the UN can prove where the money is going (CBS)

Last week, the director of the United Nation's World Food Programme said if the world's top billionaires just donated a fraction of their worth, millions of people who are at risk of starving to death can be saved. Elon Musk, the second wealthiest person in the world, said he'd give up some of his wealth – only if he knows exactly where the money is going.

David Beasley, director of the World Food Programme, said on CNN last week that a "one-time" donation from the top 400 billionaires, whose net worths are ever growing, in the U.S. could help save the lives of 42 million people this year.

Honest offer or cheap publicity stunt?

It's not as if a man of his means needs to go through the UN if the aim is to feed people.

Urging change of gender to be criminalised (UK)

Urging change of gender to be criminalised
The Times (UK)

Adults who try to persuade children to change their gender will face criminal sanctions under government plans.
From next spring it will be illegal to convince someone to change their sexuality or gender identity, with extra safeguards to protect adolescents.

Government sources suggested that individuals working for organisations such as Mermaids, a charity that offers advice and counselling to children with gender dysphoria, could face criminal sanctions if they were found guilty of encouraging under 18s to change gender.

Under the proposals, medical professionals such as psychiatrists and doctors will escape sanctions. Informal advice sought from family and friends will also not be criminalised. However, all other counselling offered to children under 18 will be outlawed and adults will have to consent to take part in therapy. The laws will be introduced after a consultation.

Transfers to private schools, suburban districts, homeschooling spur latest CPS enrollment drop

Transfers to private schools, suburban districts, homeschooling spur latest CPS enrollment drop
Chicago Sun Times

The school system suffered its 10th consecutive year of falling enrollment, now down to 330,000 from last year’s 341,000, according to a tally on the 20th day of this school year.

Chicago Public Schools’ latest enrollment drop was spurred largely by students leaving the city for schools in the suburbs, downstate or entirely out of the state, plus children moving to city private schools, parents opting for homeschooling or kids falling off the district’s radar, new data released Wednesday shows.

The number of students falling into one of those categories totaled almost 26,000 and left CPS hanging on by a thread to its status as the third-largest district in the nation. The school system suffered its 10th consecutive year of falling enrollment, now down to 330,000 from last year’s 341,000, according to a tally on the 20th day of this school year.

Not explicitly mentioned in the article, but there's also an over all drop in the population for the city.

United States issues its 1st passport with 'X' gender marker (AP)

United States issues its 1st passport with ‘X’ gender marker (AP)

DENVER (AP) — The United States has issued its first passport with an “X” gender designation — a milestone in the recognition of the rights of people who don’t identify as male or female — and expects to be able to offer the option more broadly next year, the State Department said Wednesday.

The U.S. special diplomatic envoy for LGBTQ rights, Jessica Stern, called the moves historic and celebratory, saying they bring the government documents in line with the “lived reality” that there is a wider spectrum of human sex characteristics than is reflected in the previous two designations.

...


Good, but ...

Why have gender on the passport at all? The picture should be enough.

North Carolina lieutenant governor facing backlash after calling transgender people 'filth'

North Carolina lieutenant governor facing backlash after calling transgender people ‘filth’ (NY Post)

North Carolina’s lieutenant governor is facing mounting calls for his resignation after he was caught on video calling transgender people “filth.”

The video, which was first posted Wednesday by Right Wing Watch, showed the first-term Republican making the comments during a speech at Asbury Baptist Church in June.

“There’s no reason anybody, anywhere in America should be telling children about transgenderism, homosexuality, any of that filth,” Mark Robinson said in the video, which has gone viral. “Yes, I called it filth.”

The comments were condemned by the White House this week. ...


A Republican of course.
