Drag queen forces child to leave class for denying 73 genders, school teaches anal sex to 11-year-olds: report
"We consider the attendance of a ‘drag queen’ in class and alienating students clearly confused about the information discussed during this session wholly inappropriate," the petition reads in part.
Speaking with Energy FM, Marown Parish Commissioners Vice-Chairman Eliza claimed that children as young as 11 were taught by a drag queen and told there are 73 genders. One student responded that there were only two genders, which prompted the drag queen to say, "you’ve upset me," and ask the student to leave the class.
Senate Bill 115 draws criticism from businesses that host drag shows
LEXINGTON, Ky. — Senate Bill 115 has received a lot of backlash from the LGBTQ community because of its provisions to not allow drag performances within 1,000 feet of parks, libraries, schools and more.
There are several businesses that host drag shows and brunches that are concerned with the impact this bill might have on them. One of those businesses is Wise Bird Cider, which hosts bi-monthly drag brunches. If the bill passes, staff at Wise Bird Cider are concerned that they won’t be able to host the brunches because of the cidery’s proximity to a walking trail and residential buildings.
Protection From New COVID-19 Vaccines Drops Sharply Within Months: CDC
The new COVID-19 vaccines provide a boost to protection against hospitalization, although that shielding wanes within months, according to unpublished data presented on Feb. 24.
A bivalent Pfizer or Moderna booster increased protection against hospitalization initially by 52 percent, but that protection dropped to 36 percent beyond 59 days, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) researchers said.
The researchers separately looked at the protection of people who had received two or more monovalent doses, or doses of the original vaccines, and no bivalent booster. They found that people ages 18 to 64 had just 19 percent protection against COVID-19-associated hospitalization and that those 65 and older had just 28 percent protection.
Worldwide COVID Vaccine Push Is ‘Greatest Violation of Medical Ethics in the History of Medicine, Maybe Humanity’: Board-Certified Obstetrician-Gynecologist (Video)
Dr. James Thorp, a board-certified obstetrician-gynecologist and maternal-fetal medicine physician of more than four decades, was interviewed on Thursday by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson regarding the link between COVID-19 vaccines and the startling increases in menstrual abnormalities, miscarriages, and stillborn or fetal death rates.
“To the layman, these seem like very dramatic numbers. Is that how you read them?” Carlson asked Dr. Thorp.
“One can make a very strong argument, Tucker, that the pushing of these experimental Covid-19 vaccines globally is the greatest violation of medical ethics in the history of medicine, maybe humanity,” Thorp replied.
The board-certified doctor went on to describe a paper he authored that he hopes will be the lead feature article in a major peer-reviewed medical journal in March.
COVID-19 Can Cause Virus-Induced Trauma
Virus interrupts a process linked to depression, leading to higher percentages of PTSD than seen in war veterans
COVID-19 infections are responsible for an upswing in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), but now the underlying mechanisms are being identified by research, offering a deeper understanding of this virus-induced mental health disorder.
A metabolic process in the gut is interrupted when angiotensin-converting enzyme-2 (ACE-2), the receptor site for SARS-CoV-2, is occupied by the virus. Tryptophan transporter is typically co-expressed with ACE-2, but when the virus is taking over ACE-2, tryptophan isn’t absorbed.
This is problematic because tryptophan, an essential amino acid that must be taken in by the diet, plays a vital role in making serotonin and melatonin. Tryptophan—found in bananas, oats, tuna, chicken, cheese, and turkey—is the sole precursor for serotonin, a neurotransmitter involved in mood, behavior, and cognition. About 30 percent of those with acute COVID-19 infections also have PTSD.
PA School District Revokes Approval For After School Satan Club Following ‘Chaos’ Of Public Outcry
The extracurricular club, which was being promoted for children ages 5 through 12, had originally been granted approval to meet in public school buildings in the Saucon Valley School District. This small suburban community is located about 60 miles north of Philadelphia in Northampton County, just outside Allentown.
Saucon Valley school superintendent Jaime Vlasaty announced one Friday night that she was rescinding approval for the club to use school facilities, saying the club had failed to meet the requirements to use district facilities.
Natural immunity found to be as effective as COVID vaccine — 3 years after mandates: Lancet study
Years after the rollout of vaccine mandates that led to the firing of thousands of workers, the Lancet has reported that natural immunity is just as effective as two doses of the Moderna or Pfizer shots in preventing both reinfection and serious illness from COVID-19.
The findings, which were published in the February edition of the prestigious medical journal, were based on a review of 65 separate studies from 19 different countries.
“Although protection from reinfection from all variants wanes over time, our analysis of the available data suggests that the level of protection afforded by previous infection is at least as high, if not higher than that provided by two-dose vaccination using high-quality mRNA vaccines,” the report declared.
Teacher Who Allegedly Suggested Kids ‘Try Being Gay’ Sued For ‘Secretly Transitioning’ Fifth Grader
Parents are suing a teacher who secretly transitioned a fifth-grade student and taught from a book that explained how to use transgender hormones and access sex-change surgeries, according to a complaint filed Jan. 27.
“[The fifth grader] who was assigned female at birth and identifies as female, was targeted by her teacher, Rosenquist, throughout the 2021/2022 school year. Rosenquist forced the then nine and ten-year-old [student] to use male pronouns and a male name. As a result [the student] became confused as to her gender,” the lawsuit writes.

The lawsuit claims that the New York school district and its superintendent knew about Rosenquist offering age-inappropriate materials to her students, but took months to inform the fifth grader’s parents about the matter. Parents had allegedly reported that Rosenquist was using pro-trans materials from outside the approved curriculum and had encouraged students to “try being gay” or try being the opposite sex.
COVID Aftermath: When Science Fiction Becomes Reality
As Dr. Kheriaty notes, the notion that the government could seize control over the bodies of an entire population and heavily regulate and discipline the bodies, minds, and souls of their citizens had been tried during the totalitarian movements of the twentieth century. Kheriaty further notes that the cutting edge of science in the United States once supported eugenic measures that included such activity as forced sterilizations of those deemed unfit to reproduce. During the early twentieth century, eugenics measures were funded by major institutions such as the Rockefeller, Carnegie, Ford, and Kellogg foundations and were supported by intellectuals at the nation's elite universities. Forced sterilization in Virginia was upheld by the Supreme Court in 1927, with Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. famously stating, "It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime, or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind." Kheriaty's point is that the medical, educational, judicial, and political establishment even in America has trampled on the rights of its citizens in the past and has assumed ownership of the bodies of those citizens deemed "unfit." To argue that similar events happened in the twenty-first century is, in Dr. Kheriaty's view, not to give in to conspiracy theories.
More COVID-19 Vaccine Injuries Approved for Compensation; Injured Still Waiting for Payouts
More than a dozen COVID-19 vaccine injury claims have now been approved by U.S. authorities, but none of the injured have received compensation.
The U.S. government’s Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program has approved claims from 19 people, ruling that they proved their injuries were caused by the vaccines. The approvals are through Feb. 1.
All 19 injured people are eligible for compensation but none have received a payout yet, according to the program.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration, which runs the program, did not respond to a request for comment.
In 17 of the cases, a COVID-19 vaccine caused myocarditis, a form of heart inflammation, pericarditis, a related condition, or both. One of the remaining approvals was for severe allergic shock and one was for a type of skin swelling called angioedema.
