“The Government’s first international LGBT conference could be cancelled after at least 100 organisations pulled out over the “unacceptable” exclusion of transgender people from plans to ban [conversion] therapy.

The PA news agency understands that the future of the global, UK-hosted conference is in question after more than 80 LGBT+ groups withdrew their support, saying they will only participate if the Prime Minister reverts to his promise for a trans-inclusive ban on conversion therapy.

A Government spokesman said it was “disappointing” to see partners quit the event planned for this year and that the Government is “considering how to proceed”.

[…]

It said it is “appalling” that the PM would “so casually walk away from four years of promises to the LGBTQ+ community”.

The charity said: “It is apparent that trans people have once again been sacrificed for political gain.

“Commissioning a separate body of work to unpick something that has already been resolved many times the world over, can only be read as an attempt to kick the issue of protecting trans people into the long grass.

“This is callous and unacceptable.”

It’s interesting who all they stick up for, in the face of who all they’ve thrown under the bus.

I agree that this is a well principled stand, on the part of the LGBTQ+ community…I just wish they had consistent, honest principles, regardless of who the minorities are.

Thanks to feinmann!

“The referendum was held in Hungary on Sunday, in parallel with the parliamentary elections, on the law that has caused serious controversy between the Hungarian authorities and the EU leadership, which prohibits the use of textbooks and materials in schools that talk about homosexual relationships, gender reassignment. The Hungarian government considers the spread of such materials a propaganda of homosexuality, and Brussels considers Hungary’s position as a violation of the rights of sexual minorities.

4 questions were asked in the referendum held in Hungary ․ Do you support the sexual orientation of minors in public schools without parental consent? Do you support the procedures that allow the sexual orientation of minors? screening among minors.

According to the Hungarian National Electoral Bureau, less than 50 percent of the respondents answered the questions put to the referendum, and 95 percent of them answered in the negative, in favor of the Hungarian law, which prohibits the introduction of sex education in schools.”

McKinseyGate: France’s Shadow Government and the Rise of the Corporate State…

Thanks to feinmann!

“In France, consultancy firms have been paid billions of euros to advise governments on policies from the coronavirus vaccine, to climate change, and vaccine roll-out, as well as digital transformation, according to a new report released by the French Senate. While the financial sums are staggering, the real scandal is the level of influence on policy that these shadowy corporate actors wield deep inside the halls of government.

The revelations contained in this report are extraordinary, and expose the inner workings of the highest echelons of the French state, in what can only be described as the near-complete corporate capture of the bureaucracy. What has been revealed is breathtaking, and opens the door to what could be one of the most consequential scandals in decades.”


COMMENT from SUBMITTER:

Macron is implicated in this scandal, and this news comes just nine days before French elections. In the case of France, McKinsey have colonised French ministries. It should be noted that the lock-step synchronised approach taken by many western governments towards imposing Covid lockdowns, mask wearing, social distancing on citizens, public messaging and mandatory vaccination, suggests an over-arching co-ordination by a single entity. It should also be noted that McKinsey are the logistical partner for Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum.”

01) Gilbert Gottfried, legendary comedian, dies at 67 after long illness

“Iconic comedian and actor Gilbert Gottfried has died at 67 years old from a rare genetic muscle disorder that affected his heart. He is remembered by fans, friends and family for entertaining audiences for decades with his unmistakable voice in roles such as the Iago the Parrot in “Aladdin,” memorable Aflac commercials and his standup performances. NBC’s Kristen Dahlgren reports for TODAY.”

He could be something of an acquired taste, and a bit tone deaf sometimes…but I find this to be really sad news.

Peace In Ukraine?

Lots of crazies with a death wish, wanting to drag everybody else down with them.
There’s a lot which is not being reported about this war…I don’t even know that there are any good actors in any of this…I cannot recognize them.

To examine the situation in Ukraine at present, it is a good idea to explore the region’s history and the trigger of this present conflict. The history of the Ukraine region itself is easily available online. The trigger of the conflict is also no secret, it relates directly to the animosity between N.A.T.O. and Russia. Most would agree that it was a mistake for Russia to invade Ukraine; most should also agree that it was a mistake for Zelensky to openly admire N.A.T.O. and to seek Ukrainian membership within it. It is this public application to N.A.T.O. (stated by all at the time as being an impossible dream) that was the trigger that caused Putin to suffer a “break-down” and launch the invasion.

There are many absurd theories about why the Russian invasion has opted to choose the letter “Z” as it’s brand, most of them being cryptic and…

United States Admits To Spreading Lies About Ukraine War…

“US Government officials have revealed that, in an effort to counter Russian propaganda, the United States has been issuing propaganda of its own about Russia, Vladimir Putin and events in Ukraine. It’s a stunning admission from an administration that has consistently pushed the line that Russia is the only source of propaganda that matters in this conflict. Meanwhile, the American media passes along this revelation as a great strategic move from the US, as opposed to what it is, a major disinformation campaign.

Jimmy and The Grayzone’s Max Blumenthal discuss this surprising piece of news and the media’s predictably disappointing response.”

Same playbook used against MAPs, for decades…

…Not so fun for the rest of you out there, when it’s issues and stakes that concern you…is it?

“The Secrets of Dumbledore will remain a secret… in China. Yes, Warner Bros. cut 6 seconds of Fantastic Beasts 3 for its Chinese release. It was two whole lines of dialogue confirming that Dumbledore is gay and had a relationship with Grindelwald. Business before pleasure, eh Hollywood?”

…”Fantastic Cheeks”?!…

I still haven’t watched the second one…though, I do have a copy…I fell asleep while trying to watch it…more than once.
