01) Bishop OUTRAGED at Trump For Using Her Church For A Photo Op


“Peaceful DC protesters were met with brutality so Trump could have a photo-op.

President Trump’s controversial foray to St. John’s Church on Monday is generating widespread criticism, after police and National Guard troops physically cleared out demonstrators, using tear gas, to allow a photo opportunity outside the church. The bishop who oversees St. John’s is among the critics.

“He used violent means to ask to be escorted across the park into the courtyard of the church,” Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington tells NPR’s Morning Edition. “He held up his Bible after speaking [an] inflammatory militarized approach to the wounds of our nation.”

“He did not pray,” the bishop continued.

Former Defense Sec. To Military: Remember Your Oath Is To The Constitution NOT Trump…

01) Former Defense Sec. To Military: Remember Your Oath Is To The Constitution NOT Trump


“Trump isn’t happy with Jim Mattis’ latest comments about him.

President Trump on Wednesday sharply criticized James Mattis after the former Defense secretary broke his silence and condemned the president’s handling of nationwide protests in a fiery statement.

Trump called Mattis the “world’s most overrated general” and swiped at his leadership capabilities, claiming that the retired four-star Marine general’s strength was not his military prowess “but rather personal public relations.”

“Probably the only thing Barack Obama & I have in common is that we both had the honor of firing Jim Mattis, the world’s most overrated General. I asked for his letter of resignation, & felt great about it. His nickname was ‘Chaos’, which I didn’t like, & changed to ‘Mad Dog,’” the president tweeted Wednesday evening.

01) Clinical Report – The Evaluation of Sexual Behaviors in Children

02) Article Figures & Data – Tabes

Thanks to flashraid99!

“Sexual behaviors are common in children. More than 50% of children will engage in some type of sexual behavior before their 13th birthday.5,6 In 1 retrospective study of 339 child welfare and mental health professionals in which participants were asked about their own experiences before 13 years of age, 73% recalled engaging in sexual behaviors with other children, 34% recalled showing their genitals to another child, 16% recalled simulating intercourse with another child, and 5% recalled inserting an object in the vagina or rectum of another child.7 Another study8 of female undergraduates reported that 26% recalled exposing themselves, 17% recalled unclothed genital touching, and 4% recalled oral-genital contact during childhood.”


COMMENT from SUBMITTER:

Sexual behaviors of children according to American Academy of Pediatrics – flashraid99

I directly knew prepubescent children, when I was a kid myself…who explicitly had sex with each other…repeatedly, on a semi-regular basis…I’ve written about and referenced it a number of times, over the decades…

It is anecdotal, of course…but it’s one of the major reasons why I have no hesitation or qualms, over accepting that children in fact are sexual beings…I’ve seen it first hand…Anyone rejecting this fact about children, is either ignorant or a liar.

Some people will quibble and reject, behind the declaration that “children don’t know what they’re doing, nor every imaginable consequence possible”…

…Well…La Te Da!…So?…And?…

…This has absolutely no barring, on whether or not children are sexual human beings, nor on what they are inclined by nature to do.

From what I have seen…children are quite horny little creatures, very enthusiastic to engage in fun sexual activities when given the chance.

Am I to believe that all the children who have engaged in these sorts of activities, are absolute freaks of nature?

01) Trump FIGHTING With His Defense Secretary


“Are Mark Esper’s days in the Trump administration numbered?

Secretary of Defense Mark Esper is on shaky ground with the White House after saying Wednesday that he does not support using active duty troops to quell the large-scale protests across the United States triggered by the death of George Floyd and those forces should only be used in a law enforcement role as a last resort.

Speaking from the Pentagon briefing room podium, Esper noted that “we are not in one of those situations now,” distancing himself from President Donald Trump’s recent threat to deploy the military to enforce order.

Barack Obama on George Floyd Protests…

01) Barack Obama on George Floyd Protests


“Barack Obama has a solution to the global wide unrest, and it’s very Obama-like.

As millions of people across the country take to the streets and raise their voices in response to the killing of George Floyd and the ongoing problem of unequal justice, many people have reached out asking how we can sustain momentum to bring about real change.

Ultimately, it’s going to be up to a new generation of activists to shape strategies that best fit the times. But I believe there are some basic lessons to draw from past efforts that are worth remembering.

First, the waves of protests across the country represent a genuine and legitimate frustration over a decades-long failure to reform police practices and the broader criminal justice system in the United States. The overwhelming majority of participants have been peaceful, courageous, responsible, and inspiring. They deserve our respect and support, not condemnation – something that police in cities like Camden and Flint have commendably understood.

On the other hand, the small minority of folks who’ve resorted to violence in various forms, whether out of genuine anger or mere opportunism, are putting innocent people at risk, compounding the destruction of neighborhoods that are often already short on services and investment and detracting from the larger cause. I saw an elderly black woman being interviewed today in tears because the only grocery store in her neighborhood had been trashed. If history is any guide, that store may take years to come back. So let’s not excuse violence, or rationalize it, or participate in it. If we want our criminal justice system, and American society at large, to operate on a higher ethical code, then we have to model that code ourselves.
