Teenagers waste 40 days a year looking at mobile devices, startling research discovers

MICHELLE SIMMONS–In this day and age, it has become the norm to see someone glued to their mobile phones, especially teenagers. In fact, it may seem that teenagers are really addicted to that rectangular handheld device.

In 2017, a study which observed 1,500 families composed of teenagers living at home with their parents concluded that the average teenager spent more than 40 full days of the year (or around two hours and 40 minutes a day) browsing their mobile phones, as reported by the Daily Mail.

The results showed that teens from Liverpool spent the most time on their phones with 48 days of texting and browsing apps, while teens from Cardiff and Glasgow came second and third, respectively. Teens from London were at the bottom of the list with 37 days.

This study showed how teenagers have become dependent to their mobile devices.

Moreover, a survey by Common Sense Media, a nonprofit organization that focuses on helping parents, teachers, and policymakers harness media and technology positively, also confirmed that teenagers are so consumed by their mobile phones today that 50 percent of them felt they were addicted to their mobile phones. The 1,240 interviewees were parents with their children ages 12 to 18 who were mobile phone users.

Phone separation causing stress and anxiety

In the same Daily Mail article, a study by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and Eotvos Lorand University in Budapest found that people who considered themselves as heavy mobile device users experienced withdrawal symptoms when taken away from their phones, such as disrupted heartbeat patterns.

The participants were 87 smartphone users aged between 18 and 26. They were individually led to an almost empty room with a laptop on a desk and chair and some everyday items like newspapers, a cuddly toy, and a beanbag seat.

They were then asked to answer a simple computerized math test with the help of the calculator on their mobile phones for the first set. During the second set, some were given different smartphones while the others were provided with an actual calculator.

After finishing the two sets of questions, the participants were given a short break before being asked to complete a series of word games and a questionnaire about their attachment to their mobile phones.

During this short break, three quarters of those left without a mobile phone showed signs of stress and displacement behavior like fidgeting and scratching, while 20 percent went towards the cupboard.

The results showed that those who were separated from their mobile phones were more likely to display heartbeat patterns often associated with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

On the other hand, the responses from the questionnaire evoked that mobile phones are used to relieve tension and impart feelings of confidence and security.

Additionally, Metro.co.uk reported on a study by the Swansea University that people actually experience physical withdrawal symptoms when not using the internet.

The researchers measured the heart rate and blood pressure of 144 participants before and after using the internet. Results showed that heavy internet users had an increase in heart rate and blood pressure when they stopped using the internet. Feelings of anxiety were also detected.

“We have known for some time that people who are over-dependent on digital devices report feelings of anxiety when they are stopped from using them, but now we can see that these psychological effects are accompanied by actual physiological changes,” said Phil Reed, study lead and professor of Swansea University’s College of Human and Health Sciences in an article by the Swansea University.

In this digital culture, people have integrated media and technology in their lives that in some cases, it has become their life. This is alarming as humans have become too attached to their phones that they get stressed when they are separated from them. (Related: Cell Phone Addiction.)

Alarmists who oppose off-grid living now claim wood-burning stoves have killed 3 million people

TRACEY WATSON–The World Health Organization (WHO) calls air pollution “the world’s largest single environmental risk.” In 2012, one-in-eight deaths around the globe were a result of exposure to air pollution. There is a direct link between exposure to both indoor and outdoor air pollution and increased incidences of stroke, heart disease and cancer. Now, a review led by Professor Onno van Schayck of Maastricht University in the Netherlands, claims that a global surge in lung disease deaths, in spite of steadily decreasing numbers of smokers, can be explained by the increasing numbers of wood-burning stoves being used worldwide.

There are two main causes of a life-threatening disease called Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD): smoking and exposure to air pollution.

According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, COPD is a progressive disease that makes it increasingly difficult to breathe. It can cause a wet, slimy cough, wheezing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath. COPD encompasses both emphysema and chronic bronchitis. For those living with this illness, every breath is agony, and COPD places them at increased risk for complications which can be life threatening.

While awareness of the dangers of smoking has led to more and more people quitting this dirty habit, an increase in the number of wood-burning stoves used worldwide has offset this trend, causing an 11.6 percent increase in COPD diagnoses in the last 15 years. (Related: If you haven’t quit yet, get tips and hacks to help you at StopSmoking.news)

Professor van Schayck points out that around 1.8 billion of our planet’s residents use biomass cooking methods – where heat for cooking is derived from the burning of wood or other organic matter.

While for many burning wood to cook their food is a basic element of survival, a surge in popularity of wood-fired cooking in trendy restaurants and pizzerias is also contributing to the problem, as is the use of wood-burning stoves for household heating. (Related: Air pollution from vehicles damages your lungs and cardiovascular system after just two hours on a busy street.)

Professor van Schayck claims that many of the 3.2 million people who died from COPD in 2015 became ill as a direct result of pollution caused by such stoves.

He reached this conclusion after reviewing a study published in the journal The Lancet Respiratory Medicine.

The lead author of that study, Professor Theo Vos, noted:

“COPD and asthma contribute substantially to the burden of non-communicable disease. Although much of the burden is either preventable or treatable with affordable interventions these diseases have received less attention than other prominent non-communicable diseases like cardiovascular disease, cancer or diabetes. Up-to-date information on COPD and asthma is key to policy making to improve access to and quality of existing interventions.”

The sad fact is that even though COPD kills close to 30,000 people in the U.K. alone each year, most people have never even heard of the disease.

And air pollution exposure makes you vulnerable to many other diseases, as well, because it damages your immune system’s ability to destroy bacteria and viruses.

The U.K.’s Daily Mail reports:

Air pollution could make you more vulnerable to infection, if new research is to be believed. Edinburgh Napier University were behind the findings which investigated the link between car-choked streets and illness. The results, showing significant human health implications, are believed to be the first to confirm an association between the two.

Dr. Peter Barlow, lead author of the Edinburgh Napier study warns, “We were extremely concerned when we found that air pollution particles could inhibit the activity of these molecules, which are absolutely essential in the fight against infection. In light of these findings, we urge that strong action plans are put in place to rapidly reduce particulate air pollution in our towns and cities.”

As the problem of indoor and outdoor air pollution continues to escalate, and governments seem no closer to improving the situation, now is a good time to consider investing in a high-quality air purification system for your home and office.

Republican Senator Warns: It Feels Like Violence Is Coming

MAC SLAVO–Republican Senator Ben Sasse from Nebraska feels like there’s most likely more violence coming in the near future. Following last weekend’s deadly clash between neo-Nazi groups, and left-wing counter-protesters in Charlottesville, VA, Sasse posted a long comment on Facebook that’s prophetic, and disconcerting.

“It feels like violence is coming,” Sasse wrote at the end of a long Facebook post on Friday evening, titled “The next Charlottesville.” “I’m not sure if this moment is like the summer of ’67 or not. But it might be. Before that violence strikes again, it’s up to us to reaffirm that exceptional American Creed again today, with our neighbors, and in our kids’ hearts.”

*Please note: Sasse did not condone any violence, he merely states in his post that he believes it to be inevitable.

His long post is filled with prophetic warnings of a civil war, yet those words aren’t specifically mentioned except when he references the historical American Civil War. Earlier in the online note, Sasse listed out a number of “observations” from his family discussions this week. Within that 16-point list, the lawmaker said he expects the violence to “come when white supremacists and the alt-right fight anarchist groups aligned with the extreme left.” He is wrong about one thing.  Anarchist groups don’t “fight” for the right or the left; in fact, non-aggression is the key to most anarchist’s philosophy.  The anarchists actually want no government; not a left or right version and don’t stand with either side. Yet that’s a common mistake many people make, and he goes on detailing a rather bleak looking near future if Americans can’t set their desire for violence aside.

Sasse seems to be blaming pretty much all sides of the political spectrum and suggests that a race war could break out, and soon; and he doubts the government’s ability to stop the violence he feels is imminent. Of a conversation with a person, Sasse claims it was said to him:

But “when the next rounds of violence come, I’ll bet you most of it will come from the left. And then some folks I know will respond in kind. It’s gonna be a powder-keg.”

Sasse repeatedly wrote of the importance of the “American Idea.” The idea “that all people are endowed by their Creator with inalienable rights” and urged Americans to embrace open debate versus “identity politics,” racism, and violence.

SPONSOR: The #1 Tactical Self-defense Pen In America

The post by Sasse came off as a quite condemning to President Donald Trump as well, with the lawmaker saying he doubts Trump’s ability to quiet the violence brewing in the United States right now.  Even with his critique of the president aside, Sasse could be right about one thing: violence is inevitable.  We may have reached the point of no return.

Radical Left now attempting to memory-hole America… calls for taking down statues of Washington, Jefferson and Founding Fathers

JD HEYES–During his combative press conference with the disgustingly dishonest establishment media at Trump Tower on Tuesday, President Donald J. Trump doubled down on his earlier statements that demonstrations on the Left and Right were to blame for the violence in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend.

At one point in recognizing that there were “good people” on both sides — those who showed up to support keeping a monument to Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee in Emancipation Park and those who showed up to support removing it — the president wondered aloud where efforts to rewrite and memory-hole U.S. history by the Left would end.

“This week it’s Robert E. Lee. I notice that Stonewall Jackson’s [statue is] coming down. I wonder, is it George Washington next week, and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You really do have to ask yourself, when does it stop?” Trump said.

And within 24 hours, guess what? Calls to remove George Washington and other founding fathers began.

As reported by CBS Chicago, a local pastor who is black, has drafted a letter to Mayor Rahm Emanuel demanding he remove a statue of our first president and another from two parks on the city’s South Side:

A Chicago pastor has asked the Emanuel administration to remove the names of two presidents who owned slaves from parks on the South Side, saying the city should not honor slave owners in black communities.

A bronze statue of George Washington on horseback stands at the corner of 51st and King Drive, at the northwest entrance to Washington Park.

Bishop James Dukes, a ‘man of God’ who is pastor of Liberation Christian Center, said he wants the statue to be taken down and Washington’s name scrubbed from the park. He also wants the park rededicated to an African-American figure. (Related: There’s a purge of ALL Confederate monuments coming as Alt-Left seeks to erase, rewrite history.)

“When I see that, I see a person who fought for the liberties, and I see people that fought for the justice and freedom of white America, because at that moment, we were still chattel slavery, and was three-fifths of humans,” he said. “Some people out here ask me, say ‘Well, you know, he taught his slaves to read.’ That’s almost sad; the equivalent of someone who kidnaps you, that you gave them something to eat.”

He went on to say that even though Washington led the country in a successful revolution against a tyrannical British monarch and set the stage for the creation of the greatest experiment in self-government the world has ever seen before and since he’s no hero to black people.

“There’s no way plausible that we would even think that they would erect a Malcolm X statue in Mount Greenwood, Lincoln Park, or any of that. Not that say Malcolm X was a bad guy; they just would not go for it,” he said. “Native Americans would not even think about putting up a Custer statue, because of the atrocities that he plagued upon Native Americans. And for them to say to us ‘just accept it’ is actually insulting.”

Dukes also wants the city to remove Andrew Jackson’s name from nearby Jackson Park, again because he was a slave owner. He says Washington Park should be renamed after former black Chicago Mayor Harold Washington, and to rename Jackson Park after the legendary race-baiter and race hustler Jesse Jackson.

“I think we should be able to identify and decide who we declare heroes in our communities because we have to tell the stories to our children of who these persons are,” he said. “In an African-American community, it’s a slap in the face and it’s a disgrace for them to honor someone who was a slave owner.”

Well, maybe it is to a race-baiter and someone ignorant of history playing on the people’s emotions.

For the record, Washington’s will mandated the freeing of his slaves after his wife Martha’s death, the only slave-owning founder to do so.

As for Jackson, he demanded his slaves be treated “humanely” and believed that Providence, in time, would eventually eradicate the evil. And it did, through the Civil War — and the constitutional amendment process which, of course, was devised and ratified by our founders.

None of this matters, however, to people like Dukes, but there is a certain irony here as well. Jackson lashed out at abolitionists during his presidency, but not because he thought it should forever endure. Rather, “he generally perceived the growing slavery controversy as artificial and political, with both abolitionists and southern extremists seeking to divide the Union to serve their separate ends.”

Doesn’t that sound familiar?

What people like Dukes don’t get is that as times and culture has changed and as our nation has diversified ethnically, so have American attitudes regarding who we consider heroes. Today we honor Americans of many different races, backgrounds, histories, and achievements, from the time when our country began to the present. Some of those figures are every bit as controversial to a faction of our population as the founders are to others, but you don’t see people clamoring for those memorials and icons to be taken down and memory-holed.

Why, then, should only memorials to white men be dismantled?

“Mainstream” media stoking hatred and division by calling for MORE violence against patriotic Americans

JD HEYES–The disgustingly dishonest “mainstream” media consists primarily of Left-wing ideologues who will stop at nothing to advance their Marxist agenda, even if it means advocating violence against patriotic Americans who are fighting to preserve the country’s heritage.

As noted by SHTFPlan, an op-ed in the Washington Post this week is indicative of the kind of violence being advocated by the media. The writer, N.D.B. Collins, an associate professor at Johns Hopkins University, literally called for Left-wingers to “throw rocks” as a way of ‘protesting’ alleged social injustices:

[I]n April 1968, amid a flurry of other “rocks,” riots shook American cities following the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. It took that rolling unrest, not the promise of further economic growth, to spur President Lyndon Johnson and Congress to action. Within a week they had passed the Fair Housing Act.

Over the past century, liberalism, vexed by an ever-sharp, ever-cutting white supremacy, has needed these rocks. …

Segregationists have again assumed their pedestals in the Justice Department, the White House and many other American temples. Paper alone won’t drive them out. Start throwing rocks.

Frankly, this should not surprise anyone. Going back a century, with the advent of the modern Communist/Marxist/Leftist movements in Europe, Central and South America, violence has always been used — and justified — as a means of achieving political ends.

And as in those instances, the media, rife with Left-wing ideologues posing as “journalists,” have led the call.

Writing in The Daily Wire, John Nolte made this observation:

Going back to the Bolsheviks straight through to Barry Obama’s terrorist-pal Bill Ayers, violence is always the end result of an ideology that demands purity and conformity, even at the point of a gun. And now, probably because they have been unable to bully President Trump to its will, The Washington Post has finally revealed itself as an un-American and un-democratic monster.

Nolte further observes that the good professor is using the word “rock” as a metaphor, but it’s a metaphor for rioting, as demonstrated by his 1960s-era example. And granted, sometimes violence is the only way to get the attention of those in power after normal political processes prove unsuccessful.

But Prof. Collins, and by an act of commission, the Post for deciding to publish his call to violence, is using the Charlottesville incident to paint all opponents of Left-wing authoritarianism with the same broad brush.

Every white person who is conservative and supportive of President Trump’s “America first” mantra is being portrayed as a neo-Nazi, a skinhead, and a closet member or backer of the KKK. And the not-so-subtle message emanating from the Post and the rest of the disgusting establishment media is that anyone who opposes socialist liberalism is a Nazi who must be violently opposed and silenced.

You know… the way real Nazis used to silence their political opponents using the Brown Shirts. (Related: Left-wing media and organizations are branding others as ‘hate groups’ just because they’re conservative.)

“The Washington Post is openly legitimizing political violence against ‘racists’ in an era where anyone who did not vote for Barry [Obama], who does not automatically call for the toppling of Confederate statues, who does not like Obamacare, who supports Donald Trump, who opposes affirmative action … anyone who is not politically ‘appropriate’ and ‘correct’ is declared a racist,” Nolte correctly points out.

It’s an all-out assault on any patriotic American who believes in traditional, constitutional America and rejects Leftist authoritarianism. And the establishment press is all-in, justifying political terrorism against anyone who has a different perspective or who believes that the Constitution protects all ideals, all points of view, all perspectives.

The Post’s motto is, “Democracy Dies in Darkness.” That’s rich, coming from a fake news gin, but it’s also pathetically hypocritical — there is nothing “democratic” about the use of violence to force your political ideology on people.

The real goal of the intolerant Left is the outright extermination of conservative White culture (and elimination of the First Amendment)

MIKE ADAMS, NATURAL NEWS–It’s now perfectly clear that the real goal of the intolerant Left is the complete extermination of conservative White culture in America and the elimination of First Amendment rights for anyone who isn’t a Leftist.

This is now abundantly clear after the events in Charlottesville, Virginia, where radical left-wing protesters (Antifa) clashed with angry right-wing protesters, leading to 3 deaths and dozens of injuries. According to Leftists everywhere, young, white conservatives have no right to voice their grievances at all… even as they are demeaned, censored, slandered and vilified by the establishment Left.

Had those protesters been Black Lives Matters proponents instead of “Unite the Right” members, their right to protest would have been celebrated and even rejoiced by the mainstream media and the political establishment. According to the Left-wing status quo in America today, African-Americans, Muslims, women and LGBTQ community members all have the right to violently protest against anyone they want, but White conservative males are uniquely forbidden to exercise their First Amendment rights without being immediately labeled KKK, neo-Nazis, racists and bigots.

Along with this, Google, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter are now systematically silencing all conservative voices for purely political reasons, either demonetizing accounts, shadow banning their visibility or censoring them altogether. This politically-motivated effort of Left-wing internet gatekeepers to silence conservative voices only leads, of course, to increasing frustration among those being suppressed. And this frustration is now focused into public rallies which are now one of the very few places where such voices can express their grievances.

Yet when the Governor of Virginia pulls the permit for the rally just minutes before it was scheduled to begin — and then unleashes Antifa and other radical Left-wing groups onto the streets like a mob of communist “cultural revolution” enforcers — it can only end in violence. This is exactly what happened in Charlottesville, where the Virginia Governor — an extremely corrupt puppet of the Clintons — engineered precisely the kind of violence escalation that the Left wants to see on the evening news so they can claim the moral high ground while seeking the outright extermination of conservative culture in America.

What the Left refuses to acknowledge is how such oppression and censorship will only lead to an ever more powerful rising up among oppressed conservatives. It seems obvious their numbers will only grow stronger, and they will begin to stage protests and rallies in more cities, very likely ignoring permits altogether (since such permits are a hoax anyway, as they are at first “approved” and then rescinded at the very last minute).

(For the record, I denounce the KKK, racism and violence against innocent protesters. At the same time, I also denounce the censorship, bullying and attempted extermination of history now being carried out by the Left, all of which has led to this escalation in the first place. Many of you may not know this, but I am Native American and my wife is an immigrant. I’m also on the record stating that we are all African-Americans because our ancestors were all African in origin, but this scientific, anthropological point seems to be hopelessly lost on everyone.)

By censoring the speech of conservatives, Google, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter are pushing America toward civil war

This censorship of conservatives — combined with condemnation of them for becoming “radicalized” — will only escalate as long as the intolerant Left continues to silence and demonize the diverse viewpoints they don’t like. Far from the Left’s claim of wanting “coexistence” and diversity, the more brutal truth is that the intolerant Left demands obedience and conformity, offering no tolerance whatsoever for those who hold views the Left doesn’t like. For the record, very few voices on the far right are actually racist or bigoted, yet the Left throws all conservatives into the same category, instantly writing off their voices and grievances as if they have no right to exist. Simultaneously, the Left ignores all the violent radicals occupying its own extreme wing, pretending that those few individuals don’t represent Leftists, yet insisting that a handful of extreme KKKers somehow represent all of conservatism in America.

In this way, the intolerant Left has become a mob of bullies across America, denouncing and censoring conservatives, Whites, heterosexuals, Christians and males in particular, all while pushing its own deviant agenda of transgendered children, “normalization” of pedophilia and moral subjectivism. The weapons of the intolerant Left are social media bullying, internet censorship and street-level violence directed at police officers and conservatives. Remember the Black Lives Matter protest and the shootings of five police officers in Dallas? Remember the UC Berkeley Left-wing violence and death threats against conservative speaker Milo Yiannopoulos? Violence and intimidation are the weapons of the intolerant Left, and their ultimate goal is the complete extermination of conservative culture in America.

Cultural wipe out: Erasing history under the guise of “inclusiveness”

People tend to forget that the entire Charlottesville drama only unfolded after a Left-wing political decision to remove a Civil War monument dedicated to General Robert E. Lee, an historical hero of the then-confederate Army. According to the Left, Southern conservatives are not allowed to have their own war heroes, and all record of such figures must be memory-holed from history. It’s a kind of left-wing “ethnic cleansing” of history, aimed at abolishing any memory or evidence of Southern history and culture.

RELATED: Stop buying toxic products from Amazon and Walmart…

The extermination of White southern conservative culture doesn’t end there: Confederate flags have also been vilified and exorcised from the culture, and southern-speaking men are routinely vilified or mocked on Saturday Night Live or other Left-wing comedy shows that think nothing of demonizing a culture they hate. Take notice how the intolerant Left relentlessly equates “southern” with “racism,” directly stating that any who honor the war heroes of the Confederate Army are automatically racist KKK members, making them “bigots” who must be stripped of any right to free speech. The Left also insists the Civil War was fought over slavery when, in truth, it was far more about states’ rights — something now being aggressively asserted by California Leftists, ironically, who wish to secede from the union in order to govern themselves. (I say, go for it! Every state should be its own nation, and it’s time to abolish the tyranny of a bloated federal government altogether.)

The upshot is that the real goal of the enraged Left is to exterminate all conservative culture — especially that of the South — while silencing those individuals born out of such a culture. Conservative, White southerners are to be shunned, demonized, mocked, silenced and vilified at every opportunity. In essence, the intolerant Left denies conservatives’ right to exist by falsely equating conservatism with racism and bigotry. What more and more people are starting to realize now is that the real bigots of the modern age are found squarely on the Left, where open calls for “killing Whites” and “No Whites day” on college campi are frightening common. (Can you imagine the outcry if a university announced a “No Blacks day?”)

Echoes of the Third Reich’s strategy to exterminate Jews for being “inferior”

The last time we saw this played out was, of course, in the Third Reich, where one group of self-appointed “superior” people deemed another group unfit for survival. They carried out mass genocide against the Jews, first by stripping away their gun rights, then denying their right to engage in commerce or speech. It wasn’t long before the Nazi fascists packed railroad cars full of Jews to be shipped off for processing in the concentration camps. It’s no exaggeration to point out this is exactly what the Left wants for conservatives in America today. If they had a way to mass murder all White male conservatives, they would rapidly do so, even while carrying signs that read “Tolerance” and “Inclusiveness” as they beat conservatives to death in the streets.

And that’s why the resistance against this has become the new civil rights issue of our time: White culture’s attempt to defend their rights to self-expression and self-defense, even amid a torrent of violence and oppression by the new “tolerant” Left that, in practice, has no real tolerance at all (and has become overtly racist and intolerant in the process).

That’s how much things have turned 180 degrees. The new civil rights struggle in America will be fought by young, conservative White men who are being systematically oppressed and censored by an intolerant, dangerous Left-wing Ministry of Truth that controls the search engines, social media sites, video sites, late night television and movie industry. Their numbers are growing. Their anger is growing. And they cannot be destroyed by merely branding them “KKK” or “racists,” either. The vast majority of them are not KKK or even racists. They are merely tired of being oppressed in the same way that African-Americans were systematically oppressed through the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s, 70s and 80s. In both cases, people want to be free and are willing to fight against oppression in order to achieve freedom.

My point of view in all this, in case you’re curious, is that I fully support the right of anyone to speak their mind, regardless of the color of their skin, their sexual orientation, religion or otherwise. I believe in free speech rights for everyone, including those with whom I wholeheartedly disagree. The Left does not understand this principle of tolerance, sadly, and they have decided that silencing their political enemies is their “new deal” for achieving a utopian society rooted in totalitarianism and censorship. We must all resist that dystopian vision for America, regardless of where we stand on the political spectrum.

Where this goes next: Suicide bombings carried out by young Americans?

Although it pains me to realize America is headed in such a direction, I couldn’t help but notice from the drone footage of the Charlottesville event that the high crowd density makes such events “perfect” targets for suicide bombers from either side of the extreme political spectrum.

Check out the crowd density yourself in the video below, and imagine that instead of just ramming people, some suicidal maniac fills his car with explosives and drives into a crowd, then detonates it. Instead of just one dead, you’d have a hundred dead. Note that this tactic could be used by either extreme Leftists or right-wing suicide bombers, depending on their intended target. (Bombs don’t discriminate. They just cause mass carnage.)

I have a nauseating feeling that this is where things are headed next. It seems to me that the Left’s extremism (and their calls for killing conservatives) combined with the extreme frustration of those on the right creates an almost “perfect storm” for escalating violence. At first, people were just flinging mean words at each other, then that quickly escalated to concrete-filled soda cans and the wearing of ballistic helmets. Now we’ve got a car used as a ramming weapon, and it’s not at all difficult to see violent Left-wing groups such as Redneck Revolt bringing AK-47s to these events in the near future.

Those AKs will, of course, be met by conservatives wielding AR-15s, and before long we’re in a shooting war while the cops are nowhere to be found (they seem to flee at the sight of Antifa protesters anyway, allowing left-wing extremists to wreak havoc on cities). From that, the next step is vehicle bombs and suicide bombs, either of which effectively put the United States of America into a state of open warfare where it’s “weapons free” in every engagement.

My sense is that unless the intolerant Left halts its campaign of censorship, oppression and attempted extermination of White culture across America, we’re only going to see ever-larger groups of Right-wing protesters joining forces and pursuing even more protests in more cities across America. It’s only a matter of time, I believe, before one of these conflicts devolves into a “weapons free” scenario in one way or another, during which Leftists will likely be slaughtered en masse for the simple reason that their firearms skills are laughably bad (and AK-47s are horribly inaccurate). From there, the Left probably stages a massive march on Washington to try to depose President Trump, which is met by the declaration of martial law and the end of freedom for everyone.

My message to all the frustrated youth taking part in these events is simply this: Be careful what you wish for. Because you just might lose your liberty and your country if you allow this to escalate out of control. Also remember: Whoever shoots first loses the narrative war. So hold your fire and chill out. Join the March On Google to demand an end to the techno-censorship of conservatives so that we can all discuss ideas rather than killing each other in the streets.

American Diabetes Association a FRAUD: Recommended recipes found to contain ingredients that cause diabetes

MIKE ADAMS–The American Diabetes Association is a total fraud. The group exists to promote diabetes, not eliminate it, and proof of that is found in the fact that the ADA posts recipes on its own website that promote diabetes!

FACT: All the top “disease” organizations have been captured by pharmaceutical interests. The American Cancer Society is a front group for the cancer industry. The American Heart Association is a front group for the statin drug industry. And the American Diabetes Association is a front group for all the pharmaceutical interests that profit from ongoing disease “treatment.” (Diabetes drugs and the lucrative treatments of related health conditions caused by diabetes, including heart disease and cancer.)

None of these groups want to put themselves out of business by eliminating disease

If cancer were solved, the cancer industry would implode and all the people at the ACS would lose their jobs and incomes. The same is true with the AHA and ADA. Diabetes will never be “solved” by the diabetes industry for the simple fact that they are in business to make money off diabetes.

That’s why they never tell people how to prevent diabetes. In fact, they ridiculously claim “diabetes has no cure,” even when people are reversing type-2 diabetes every day by simply changing their diet and lifestyle choices. Diabetes is a lifestyle disease caused by excessive consumption of processed foods (including processed meat with sodium nitrite), lack of mineral nutrition and a sedentary lifestyle.

An analysis of the American Diabetes Association’s website reveals the organization is actually promoting recipes that cause diabetes, thereby ensuring its own repeat business through the suffering and exploitation of the public. That’s Big Pharma’s business model, of course: Repeat business through the continuation of disease (and the denial of disease prevention).

Days Of Lot: New Survey Finds That Evangelical Christian Support For Gay Marriage Has More Than Doubled

 

MICHAEL SNYDER  A new survey just released by the Pew Research Center has found that support for gay marriage in the United States is at an all-time record high. According to the survey, 62 percent of all Americans are now in favor of allowing gays and lesbians to get married, and only 32 percent are opposed. These numbers have almost flipped completely upside down from where they were a decade ago. In 2007, 54 percent of all Americans were against gay marriage and only 37 percent were in favor of it. To say that our culture has been transformed over the past ten years would be a major understatement.

One of the biggest shifts that we have seen has been among evangelicals. This brand new survey discovered that support for gay marriage among white evangelicals has more than doubled since 2007…

Support for same-sex marriage has risen across all religious groups in recent years, including among white evangelicals and black Protestants. Support for same sex-marriage among white Evangelicals has more than doubled compared with a decade ago (14% then, 35% now), while the share of black Protestants who favor same-sex marriage has increased from 24% in 2007 to 44% today.

In particular, the shift in favor of gay marriage among evangelicals has been most noticeable among young people. Today, a staggering 47 percent of all white evangelicals born after 1964 favor gay marriage

Overall, white evangelical Protestants continue to stand out for their opposition to same-sex-marriage: 35% of white evangelical Protestants favor same-sex marriage, compared with a 59% majority who are opposed. But younger white evangelicals have grown more supportive: 47% of white evangelical Millennials and Gen Xers – age cohorts born after 1964 – favor same-sex marriage, up from 29% in March 2016. Views among older white evangelicals (Boomers and Silents) have shown virtually no change over the past year (26% now, 25% then).

I honestly don’t know how this is possible.

How in the world did we get to the point where nearly half of all evangelicals born since 1964 have abandoned what the Word of God says about marriage?

As this massive cultural shift continues, it is going to become increasingly difficult for those that still want to try to stand up for traditional values.

Already, we have gotten to the point where no Bible-believing Christians will be able to participate in the wedding industry because the risk of getting slapped with a very costly lawsuit is just too great. One of these cases is headed to the Supreme Court, and so let us be praying for a positive outcome…

Jack Phillips and his Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, Colorado had never had problems before with homosexual customers. That changed when the Christian owner refused to create a cake to celebrate a same-sex marriage, the business landed in deep legal trouble with the state.

Now the U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to take up Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission.

It pits Phillips’ religious rights against the rights of a gay couple to receive the same and equal treatment under the law as heterosexual couples.

Today, the average American watches approximately five hours of television a day, and more than 90 percent of the news and entertainment that we watch is controlled by just six gigantic media conglomerates. All of those media giants are relentlessly advancing a pro-gay agenda, and we need to realize what is being done to us.

If you allow anyone to feed “programming” into your mind for five house a day, it is going to have a major impact on how you view the world.

This is particularly true of the next generation. Our children are being raised to fully embrace the social agenda of the radical left, and eventually they are going to become the leaders of tomorrow.

Our hearts should break when we read about young kids such as 9-year-old Audrey Cisneros

But Audrey is realizing it’s not an easy thing for people to understand — especially her fellow fifth-graders. Here’s how she puts it:

“A drag show is a very, very fun and special event where people can express themselves for who they really are, and show it to everyone that is in the room. You don’t judge people just because they dress up as the opposite gender or because they love someone of the same gender. Just be proud of them, don’t fight it.”

On Saturday, Audrey and other children attend a drag queen story hour hosted by My LGBT Plus. Similar events have been held across the country, aiming to familiarize kids with the gay community and give them “glamorous, positive and unabashedly queer role models.”

On the other hand, children all over the country are being banned from bringing Bibles to school or gathering for group prayer.

Eventually it will get to the point where our children can’t even say grace before a meal. If you doubt this, just check out what is happening in Sweden

Children at a Christian preschool in Sweden are no longer allowed to say grace at mealtimes, “Amen”, or talk about the Bible, after a ruling by the Umeå municipality.

Visiting the preschool for an inspection, supervisors from the district said the activities run contrary to the Education Act, which forbids educational content during school time from containing confessional elements, and states that children at must always have the choice of whether or not to participate.

The municipality said it felt that children at the Salvation Army-run kindergarten were not given enough of an opportunity to opt out of saying grace at mealtimes.

When I say that the radical left wants to eradicate our way of life, I am not exaggerating one bit.

The left does not believe in free speech and the marketplace of ideas. Instead, they believe in hate speech laws and using the legal system as a tool to punish those that do not see things the same way that they do.

Slowly but surely, they are going to criminalize the belief systems of those that disagree with them.

Meanwhile, much of the evangelical church is silent on these issues. Many leaders are concerned that if they do speak out that attendance will go down and offerings will not be as large as they were previously.

If evangelical churches had been boldly proclaiming the truth all this time, support for gay marriage among evangelicals would not have doubled over the past decade.

If we want America to repent and turn in a positive direction, it begins with us, and it is about time that we got started.
