As Arrest of Smallville Star Dominates Media, These 5 Celebrities are Fighting To Stop Human Trafficking

humanhuman

As police arrest former Smallville Actress Allison Mack on charges of sex trafficking and forced labor for her role in a Hollywood sex cult that was used to abuse thousands of women, it serves as a reminder that sex slavery runs rampant in the entertainment industry and some of the abuse that has been exposed recently has been ongoing for years.

However, it appears that Hollywood is not completely corrupt, and there are a number of actors and musicians who are using their large following on social media and their celebrity status to speak out against human trafficking and sex slavery.

Here are five celebrities who are taking a stand:

1. Actor Ashton Kutcher

As an actor who has been a regular face on TV since he debuted on “That ‘70s Show” in the late 1990s, Ashton Kutcher co-founded a nonprofit organization in 2010 with the mission to fight back against exploitation of children around the world. Thorn: Digital Defenders of Children is described as an organization that is working “to stop the spread of child sexual abuse material and stand up to child traffickers.”

Kutcher made headlines in February 2017 when he testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee about his efforts to combat sex slavery, and he called on Congress to study and to pursue the types of new software his organization is using to fight human trafficking.

“As part of my anti-trafficking work, I’ve met victims in Russia, I’ve met victims in India, I’ve met victims that have been trafficked from Mexico, victims from New York and New Jersey and all across our country. I’ve been on FBI raids where I’ve seen things that no person should ever see,” Kutcher said. “I’ve seen video content of a child that’s the same age as mine being raped by an American man that was a sex tourist in Cambodia. And this child was so conditioned by her environment that she thought she was engaging in play.”

2. Actress Demi Moore

As an actress who has been appeared in movies and on television since the 1980s, Demi Moore is also a co-founder of Thorn: Digital Defenders of Children. The foundation’s efforts have resulted in the arrests of more than 6,500 child sex traffickers and the identification of nearly 6,000 child sex victims.

Moore was recognized for her efforts to combat human trafficking when she was given the Visionary Woman Award last month. During her acceptance speech, she said, “We don’t have to fight much, we just need to unite. The power of our collective is only going to bring the light and the success to an even greater level.”

3. Singer Ricky Martin

While he is known as a Puerto Rican singer whose albums have sold millions of copies since he rose to fame in the 1990s, Ricky Martin is also an activist and his work to combat human trafficking began when he saved three young girls from becoming victims during a trip to India in 2002.

Martin then founded the Ricky Martin Foundation with the mission to denounce human trafficking and educate about its existence through research and community initiatives, anchored in the defense of children and youth rights.”

The foundation has held more than 500 conferences to educate the public on sex trafficking, and it is also using technology to further campaigns to raise awareness about sex crimes around the world.

4. Actress Kristen Bell

As an actress and a mother of two young daughters, Kristen Bell has been a vocal advocate for the END IT movement, which is a coalition of organizations, celebrities and activists who are working to raise awareness about the men, women, and children who are trapped in various forms of sex slavery around the world.

The movement is described as a global phenomenon, inspiring people from all walks of life to raise their voices and show their passion in the fight against slavery … Laws are changing, bills are being passed, and more resources are becoming available thanks to Freedom Fighters who continue to charge forward and shine a light on slavery.”

“There are over 20 million people who are still in slavery. Let’s raise awareness to help ‪#EndIt,” Bell wrote on Twitter, in recognition of “Shine a Light on Slavery Day” in February 2017.

5. Actress Julia Ormond

As an actress who frequently filmed movies in eastern Europe in the 1990s, Julia Ormond said she was shocked by how prevalent human trafficking was, and she decided to do her part to stand up against it by founding the Alliance to Stop Slavery and End Trafficking (ASSET) in 2007. The organization works with corporations, NGOs, government officials, and individuals in an attempt to end human trafficking and to stop it before it starts.

In addition to working with the United Nations as a Goodwill Ambassador, Ormond also worked to introduce the first piece of legislation to link business to human-trafficking by calling on retail outlets and manufacturers in the state of California to publicly disclose efforts to eliminate slavery and human trafficking.   

“In the human body if you were to take humanity, the slavery – which is the most extreme [human rights issue]—or the enslavement is like cancer in the body,” Ormond said. “So we have to take a laser-like approach that gets right to the tumor of it.”

DASH cryptocurrency and The Free Thought Project have formed a partnership that will continue to spread the ideas of peace and freedom while simultaneously teaching people how to operate outside of the establishment systems of control like using cryptocurrency instead of dollars. Winning this battle is as simple as choosing to abstain from the violent corrupt old system and participating in the new and peaceful system that hands the power back to the people. DASH is this system.

DASH digital cash takes the control the banking elite has over money and gives it back to the people. It is the ultimate weapon in the battle against the money changers and information controllers.

If you’d like to start your own DASH wallet and be a part of this change and battle for peace and freedom, you can start right here. DASH is already accepted by vendors all across the world so you can begin using it immediately.

A Neuroscientist, Mathematician And Celebrities Explain Their Psychedelic DMT Trips


BLuke Miller Truth Theory

DMT is a little known molecule that produces explosive psychedelic effects and many have described it as the doorway to meeting god.

DMT, which is short for Dimethyltryptamine is a tryptamine molecule. This molecule is also known as the spirit or god molecule. DMT can be found in many animals and plants, but also resides in the human body and brain. When smoked in some of its forms it is a potent psychedelic drug which usually lasts just 5-20 minutes before you fully return to this dimension. There are also different preparation methods which allow it to be ingested, with the most well known being ayahuasca. This lengthens the experience to around 6-8 hours.

Neuroscientist Dr. Michele Ross is a former drug researcher for the National Institute on Drug Abuse, turned medical marijuana and psychedelics advocate. Dr. Ross says she sought out non-neurotoxic, nonaddictive DMT to help her heal from trauma.  In this clip, Dr. Ross describes her DMT trip in detail.

In this video professional bodybuilder and 6 time Mr. Olympia winner Dorian Yates talks about his DMT experiences with Brian Rose of London Real.

English musician, singer, songwriter and actor Sting spoke with Daniel Pinchbeck about his experience with Ayahuasca.

Mathematician Ralph Abraham offers a mathematical perspective of the DMT trip, as he compares it to the use of LSD.

Controversial star Lindsay Lohan shared that since drinking ayahuasca she has been in a “good place” and has managed to find her drive and happiness.

Famous psychonaut and DMT user Terence Mckenna said something along the lines of- DMT use should be on the front page of every newspaper and if people only knew about this it could change the collective perception of the world as we know it. There really is some truth in this. In a culture that is obsessed with feeling and experience, the DMT trip may very well be one of the most underlooked experiences a person could experience.

It feels like the truth is slowly coming out about these substances, and regardless of if you see it as good or bad, they certainly have the ability to show you things many would deem impossible. Please share this article.

Bozell & Graham Column: Ratings Suffer When Celebrities Rant

Many red-state Americans who used to love the awards shows on TV are now wary of celebrities who cannot help but use this platform to spew their hatred of Trump and the evil/stupid conservatives who keep Hollywood liberals from running (ruining) America.

Take the Golden Globe awards in January, which included a windy nine-minute Oprah Winfrey lecture about how we need the media elites more than ever, and the celebrities dressed in black and donned their “Time’s Up” pins to say sexual harassment is over. Ratings dipped five percent and 11 percent in the key demographic for advertisers, a six-year low.

Hollywood may finally be getting the message that TV ratings are suffering because the public has grown weary of people turning live events into leftist political rallies.

The New York Times reported the Oscars people are worried. “Whenever stars use the platform to support progressive causes and make political statements, large numbers of viewers turn the channel, according to academy insiders, who cite minute-by-minute Nielsen data for past shows.”

Channing Dungey, president of entertainment at ABC, said during their Oscars telecast, the campaign against sexual harassment should be limited to a pre-scheduled “moment,” so viewers don’t feel it “overshadows the artists and the films being honored.”

If the Academy Awards people wanted to recall how Hollywood has behaved, they would take a “moment” to  replay the standing ovation for child-raping director Roman Polanski when he won Best Director in 2003. The audience could see Meryl Streep standing and applauding, and then there’s director Martin Scorsese doing the same, being a good sport about losing to Polanski, and standing up and clapping behind him is…Harvey Weinstein. 

That’s a good clip of Hollywood’s history on opposing sexual assault.

This year’s Oscars host, ABC late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel, was more blunt, telling Good Morning America that “This show is not about reliving people’s sexual assaults. It’s an awards show for people who have been dreaming about maybe winning an Oscar for their whole lives. And the last thing I want to do is ruin that for someone…by making it unpleasant.”

But will Kimmel lash out at Republicans? When Good Morning America asked if he’s been too political recently and “pushed the envelope too far,” he shot back “Not at all. I don’t think you can go too far.”  So when it came to sexual assault, Kimmel said “I’m not going to stop any bad behavior with my jokes.” But “making it unpleasant” for people who couldn’t vote for Hillary Clinton is apparently a patriotic duty.

Awards shows have been unable to avoid political moments, and viewers are tuning out. The audience for the Screen Actors Guild Awards, which began with host Kristen Bell mocking the First Lady, plummeted 30 percent (they were also scheduled against an NFL playoff game). The Grammy Awards — which mocked President Trump in a skit featuring celebrities and Hillary Clinton reading passages from Michael Wolff’s unsubstantiated trash-for-cash book Fire and Fury — was off ten million viewers (24 percent) for an all-time low.

Live events – including sports – are being skipped by people who can’t stand the political lectures. NFL ratings after all the railing against racism were down nearly 10 percent this season. NBC’s coverage of the Winter Olympics – complete with gay Olympians bashing Vice President Pence – was down 7 percent, making them the least-watched Olympics on record.

Even if ABC tries to rein in the Oscars, Americans know that Kimmel and the Hollywood crowd are likely to trash Trump, Pence, and the National Rifle Association. Many will find something else to watch.

Why Celebrities Like Eminem Need To Stop Pointing Their Finger At Donald Trump



Next Story

Neither Donald Trump nor Hillary Clinton is fit to be president, neither was Obama and many other president’s down the line. They’ve all followed the will of their masters, and that’s the main point of this article.

Donald Trump’s presidency will no doubt go down in history, for several reasons. One is the fact that he was able to beat out Hillary Clinton, despite that she was able to ‘rig’ her way into contention past Bernie Sanders through fraudulent activities, as disclosed by Wikileaks and more.   A great example of that were the DNC emails that exposed a rigged election, which was also blamed on Russia and Wikileaks, despite evidence that the leaks actually came from inside the United States. You can read more of our articles about that here.

Hillary was no doubt the next pick for the global elite to continue forth with the agenda of the American Empire, which they’ve been pushing for years, one that now has the reputation of imposing their will on multiple countries through various means in order to install or establish a political and economic framework for their own benefit. America has turned into a ‘corporatocracy,’ far from a democracy, and much ‘evil’ doing is disguised as good will, a term commonly used would be ‘globalization.’

If you follow the money, it’s not hard to see. 

Journalist Abby Martin did a great video on how Hillary Clinton’s political machine really operated. You can check that out here.

In the meantime, panic and fear have been instilled into the masses,  via false flag terrorism, events like 9/11, the war on drugs and terror, and more, all of which are used to justify the infiltration of countries, like Iraq, for ulterior motives, and take away our rights here back home. The  current surveillance state is one of many great examples.

The fact remains, as alluded to by multiple insiders and scientific studies like this, that there was never a good reason to do so (infiltrate other countries), as emphasized a few years ago by former NATO Supreme Allied Commander and US General, Wesley Clark.

He told the world that the US has had plans to invade Syria (and several other countries) for no good reason, for a long time. Simply because the US has a powerful military and can “take down governments.”

As a result of propaganda and “Uncle Sam,” a great deal of patriotism has been sparked inside the heart’s of many, who are made to believe that supporting the mass military machine is something dignified, something necessary, something very brave and patriotic about.

A great quote from Mark Twain comes to mind here,

“The statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception.”

– Mark Twain (source)

All of the “great” minds throughout history have emphasized this fact, in light of countless examples of evidence. The “conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society,” and “Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government.”

The Dalai Lama has also made some great points about the mass military machine, and how we are all brainwashed into acceptance. You can read more about that and see his comments here.

This “invisible” government, is exactly why those with an influential voice must not target Donald Trump the way they do. A great example was Eminem pouring it on Donald Trump a few months ago with a freestyle. When popular figures among the masses speak up about political (and other) real world global issues, they have a tremendous influence, but just imagine if they used their voice to call out those who really “run” things on our planet. Those above the government and into the corporations (health, finance, entertainment, big food & pharma) all the way past them into the upper echelons of the global financial institutions, the Trilaterals, CFR’s, The IMF’s, the Rothschild’s, the Rockefellers’s and beyond even these previously mentioned…

That being said, it’s also important to remember that we uphold the current human experience, the masses, and if we choose to work together collectively, we can change the experience at any time. Playing the blame game is usually, but it’s important that we at least see what is going on here.

It’s obvious to see why Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States, while at the same time acknowledging the fact that, when it comes to Hillary, we are dealing with corruption and one who does the will of her masters and the highest levels. Whether it be alleged pedophilia ring activity, or supporting the infiltration of various countries through unethical means, and the killing of millions of people, these are all very important points to be made.

The point is, our entire modern day political system is broken and doesn’t really represent a democracy. The will of the people is not met, but rather influenced, used and taken in a direction of powerful people with a greedy, egoic agenda.

It seems like voting makes no difference.

Hillary Clinton was not supposed lose this election, and it’s clear that Trump was a disruptor in the plans of a group of ‘higher ups.’

This fact has been brought up in mainstream political talk within the past couple of years, with figures like Vladimir Putin telling the world what exactly happens when you’re elected president. Stating that ‘men in dark suits’ come in and tell you what’s going to be done. He made this point when explaining why US presidents, during the election race, make promises that they’re unable to fulfil. It’s because there is a ‘higher power.’ Putin is one of many who have told the world, on multiple occasions, that they are using imaginary and mythical threats to create a justification for certain actions, to gain political and economic advantages.

“So a person is elected, he comes with his ideas. Then people with briefcases come to visit him, well dressed, in dark suits kind of like mine. Except instead of a red tie it’s black or navy. And then they explain what to do, and the whole rhetoric changes, you see? This happens from one administration to the next.” – Putin

You can watch a video of him making these comments here.

So what do we have today? Assumptions of alleged Russian hacking and Wikileak ties to the Russians. Because Hillary Clinton lost the election, the United States needed something to try and get Donald Trump impeached.

This narrative has been countered by several people from within the agency, stating that it’s just another “false flag” type of situation in which they will desperately try to create evidence for.

William Binney, a high ranking NSA Whislte-Blower, is one of many examples making this point.

We are witnessing what could be completely fake news, a story that was manufactured. How many times have we been misled? How many stories have we been made to believe are real, but are actually fake? How many times have we heard fake explanations for real events?

It’s important to keep in mind that mainstream news stories are changed, by the government, to serve the interests of “national security.” Multiple documents via FOIA have shown intelligence agency influence over mainstream media, a close relationship, as well as the need to completely fabricate stories. On top of this, we have insiders themselves, world-renowned journalists of these networks ‘blowing the whistle’ on corporate and government collusion.

I’ve been a journalist for about 25 years, and I was educated to lie, to betray, and not to tell the truth to the public. But seeing right now within the last months how the German and American media tries to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russia — this is a point of no return and I’m going to stand up and say it is not right what I have done in the past, to manipulate people, to make propaganda against Russia, and it is not right what my colleagues do and have done in the past because they are bribed to betray the people, not only in Germany, all over Europe. –  Dr. Udo Ulfkotte

He also stated in that interview, as have many others, that mainstream news outlets are commonly paid by governments, intelligence agencies and big corporations to put out certain stories.

We are witnessing a war between Donald Trump and the mainstream for a reason, because the powerful (who represent mainstream media, and own it), did not want him to win. They will continue to bash and slander his name, meanwhile, those who are considered war criminals by many, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, are made to look like saints.

It just doesn’t make sense, and it really exposes the priority of mainstream media and how it doesn’t convey what’s happening in the world, but perhaps creates it.

Donald Trump was not puppeteered by this ‘secret government’ prior to his election, but the agenda of those who are much more powerful seems to continue forward in many aspects. And this is because Trump has now found out what really happens behind the scenes, as eluded to earlier in the article with the Putin example, and even he himself (Trump) has succumbed to the will of the ‘Deep State,’ it seems.

The US is always blaming and citing problems in other countries, that might not even exist, threats that are completely made up and manufactured all the time, it seems.

We recently interviewed historian Richard Dolan on the subject, who explained very well why he believed Donald Trump may have, what seems to be clear now, been ‘check-mated’ by this deep state. You can access that interview and see his explanation here.

Again, keep in mind that this has been a problem for decades that has affected almost all the presidencies. Here’s another great quote to exemplify this point,

“Political parties exist to secure responsible government and to execute the will of the people. From these great staffs, both of the old parties have ganged aside. Instead of instruments to promote the general welfare they have become the tools of corrupt interests which use them in martialling [sic] to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.” – T. Roosevelt

So, All of You Celebrities

There are countless points to go through when discussing such topics, and so many examples that can be used. The point is, if you’re a celebrity and would like to speak up on such issues, it’s important that for those of you who have a voice, to mention the hidden mechanisms that seem to control US politics.

Sure, the fact that Donald Trump is even involved does suggest he is simply another puppet, and it’s become clear that he is, but perhaps a puppet of a different kind that represents a struggle between those who play within the ‘Deep States’ rules.

See our stance on Donald Trump here.

It seems as if it’s time to really leave politics behind, and create something new that is really in the best interests of the people and all life on this planet. One thing is certain, politics does not do that, and this entire system is not interested in the well-being, freedom, and abundance for all. If the ‘leadership’ of this planet really were interested in that, and through there actions it seems quite clear that their all just putting on a charade. The revelations that’ve been made connected to both Trump Clinton, and further down the line show that these are not who we should be calling our leaders.

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
― R. Buckminster Fuller

Bullied Boy Receives Huge Support From Celebrities- But Are They Just Encouraging More Of The Same?

B

Luke Miller Truth Theory

An online video has just been released of a young boy who made an emotional video about the bullying he has been experiencing at school. The video has quickly gone viral and received support from millions of people across the globe. Some of the people who have reached out in support are well known to the public, but are some of the comments just perpetuating more division.

The young boy named Keaton Jones was filmed by his mother in a heart wrenching video in which he opens saying “Just out of curiosity, why do they bully me? What’s the point of it?” This is a great use of social media and people should reach out to try to help someone who is clearly in desperate need, however, sometimes it is easy to view the end result of a situation without first understanding the root cause of what makes a person act in the way they do.

When a child bullies another child they are likely doing so as a result of their own suffering. The circumstances which you are born into drastically affect the way you behave and those who are victimising others are also experiencing trauma, in which bullying is the way they lash out. Really a bully is someone who feels so bad about themselves that they inflict pain on others to escape. This is not an excuse or justification for their behaviour, but the only difference between those doing the bullying, those who are neutral and those who are victims, is the environment and circumstances they are born into.

Couple this with the reason the boy said he was being bullied it tells a very different story. There is a narrative, which is supported by many of the celebrities who reached out to help, that perpetuates a specific way that culturally we are supposed to be. Meaning if you don’t fit into a box that much of the media says you should fit into due to your looks and/or other factors, you become a target for victimisation.

It is a difficult situation to deal with, but its roots lay in trauma of the children who bully and what society says you should be. School for the most part puts us into boxes, categorises us based on intelligence and is often not an inclusive environment. Some of the best work and bonding is done through working in pairs and groups, yet school is an environment where you are encouraged to individually thrive.

I would just like to say that this is not an attack on anyone who commented, you can tell the intentions are coming from a good place, however, some of the comments create more of a divide than anything else.

Avengers star Chris Evans has said: “Stay strong, Keaton. Don’t let them make you turn cold. I promise it gets better. While those punks at your school are deciding what kind of people they want to be in this world, how would you and your mom like to come to the Avengers premiere in LA next year?”

Mark Ruffalo said “Keaton, will you be my guest at the Premiere of #InfinityWar too? I think you are about one of the coolest kids I have ever  seen! Can’t wait to meet you in person, pal. Forget those ignorant kids. One day, very soon, they are going to feel pretty stupid for this.”

With Dr Phil saying: “Hey Keaton, bullies are the ones with the problems NOT you. Many are bullied at home and pass it on. Cowards always need an audience. Be strong! I’ll come walk the hall and eat lunch with you anytime. #IstandwithKeaton #Keatonstrong #KeatonJones”

The problem with these comments is they promote division and while the children who are doing the bullying should not be excused for their actions publicly humiliating them is not the best course of action.

There were some more positive responses including Dana White’s at the top of this post. Others included Katy Perry who said: This broke my heart today. Please be kind to one another. #standwithkeaton

Snoop Dog said: “Say lil Man U gotta friend in me for life hit me on dm so we can chop it up love is the only way to beat hate”

And Demi Lovato saying: I #StandwithKeaton. Keaton baby, just know you’re not alone. There are so many people who come out of bullying so much stronger and you will be one of them!! God bless you sweetheart.”

Bullying is a real issue that needs to be addressed and this is a real show of bravery from Keaton and his Mother that will help raise awareness on the situation. But the bigger point I am trying to make is that we are looking at the end result of a bigger issue. Would an inclusive environment that encourages bonding be a better way to proceed? All the comments appear to come from a place of love, but is publicly humiliating and shaming those who are also victims a good way to move forward?

I would like to add this article comes from someone who has both been a bully and been bullied. Neither felt good, and if it had not been for the compassion of others I may never of thought myself worthy to help others due to my past mistakes. I never publicly apologised to those I treated badly and I think now is as good a time as any. So firstly I would like to thank Kenan for being brave and raising this issue, and also say I am sorry to those whose lives I made more difficult than they needed to be. I hope you can forgive me!

Celebrities React With Fury Over Kevin Spacey's Apology To Anthony Rapp

For more news videos visit Yahoo View.

Celebrities and others were swift and blistering in their condemnation of actor Kevin Spacey’s Twitter apology to fellow actor Anthony Rapp early Monday.

Spacey, 58, issued the statement after a BuzzFeed News report alleged that the “House of Cards” star had sexually harassed Rapp when he was just 14. In his statement, Spacey did not deny the incident but said he could “not remember the encounter.”

“If I did behave then as [Rapp] describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior,” Spacey wrote.

The Oscar-winning actor then came out as gay, saying Rapp’s story had “encouraged me to address other things about my life.”

Spacey’s statement was met with fury online, with many accusing him of coming out as a “PR smokescreen.” Others lambasted Spacey for using drunkenness as an apparent excuse for his alleged behavior. Here’s a sampling of the online censure:

In his account to BuzzFeed, Rapp said he was at a party in 1986 when Spacey, then 26, picked him up, “placed him on his bed and climbed on top of him, making a sexual advance.”

Rapp, who did not file a police report at the time, said he chose to share his story publicly now in the hopes of making a difference.

“I came forward with my story, standing on the shoulders of the many courageous women and men who have been speaking out to shine a light and hopefully make a difference, as they have done for me,” the “Rent” and “Star Trek: Discovery” actor wrote on Twitter.

Twisted: Celebrities tout "United We Plan" T-shirts equating patriotism with murdering unborn babies

Image: Twisted: Celebrities tout “United We Plan” T-shirts equating patriotism with murdering unborn babies

(Natural News)
Hollywood celebrities, who regularly push the boundaries of decorum, taste, and class, just can’t get over their love for abortion-on-demand. Now there is a new effort afoot to continue their promotion of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion mill, with a “United We Plan” T-shirt drive.

As reported by Townhall, the organization has been a cause celebre for years, with notable celebs like Amy Poehler, Judd Apatow, and Jennifer Lawrence all starring in a video earlier this summer pleading with the public to implore Congress to continue sending $500 million taxpayer dollars per year to an organization whose officials have been caught negotiating the sale of baby body parts.

Now, celebrities are employing a Hillary Clinton tactic of fundraising for Planned Parenthood with a campaign to sell T-shirts:

As Newsbusters reported recently, several big name stars are joining an Omaze fundraising campaign for Planned Parenthood, featuring $25 t-shirts that change the patriotic “United We Stand” slogan to “United We Plan” in the interest of “Uniting to support the women and men who rely on Planned Parenthood’s critical healthcare services.”

Yes, that’s right: Celebrities in Hollywood who were lucky that their own parents didn’t choose to abort them are equating the murder of unborn babies with patriotism. Only a tone-deaf Hollywood “star” would fail to see how outrageous that is to the vast majority of Americans.

It’s not like Planned Parenthood needs the money in the first place. The organization raked in $554.6 million in taxpayer money last year — an increase from the previous year — so it could abort 328,348 unborn children last year, or a “termination” rate of 899 babies per day, according to the organization’s annual report.

Then again, Planned Parenthood officials don’t make good investments with the money taxpayers provide: The organization spent $734,000 in campaign contributions to Democratic congressional candidate Jon Ossoff in Georgia during a special election this past summer — after blowing through $38 million to elect other Democrats, many unsuccessfully, in three previous election cycles.

That’s an awful lot of money to blow on political campaigns for an organization that claims its most important mission is ‘providing basic health care to women.’

Why Democrats? Easy; they are the party of infanticide, among other things. Democrats almost universally support abortion and many support the extremist position of abortion on demand, for any reason, right up until the final days of the third trimester, when the fetus is almost fully formed and a well-established, viable human.

It’s sick and twisted, but so is Planned Parenthood. That such an organization even exists in our country, and under the BS guise of “women’s health,” is a disgusting testament to what liberalism has done to our sense of values and our morality.

Which, of course, is why most Hollywood types support Planned Parenthood: They are all of the same minds. (Related: Planned Parenthood ex-employee spills all: Abortion group disguises illegal organ harvesting as ‘fetal tissue studies.’)

Just the name “Planned Parenthood” gives away the organization’s true intentions. If you didn’t “plan” to have a baby, well, then there is a 100-percent, foolproof way not to conceive one, and we all know what it is. But to these ghouls, “planned” means “kill.” “Planned” means “dispose of.” “Planned” means “murder.”

And “Parenthood?” Getting pregnant doesn’t make you a “parent.” Actually having the child and raising the child makes you a “parent.” If it’s “not a baby” growing inside a woman, as the Left loves to claim, then that woman isn’t a “parent.”

People want to tip-toe around the subject and call what this organization does “women’s health.” It’s not about “health.” Though some Planned Parenthood clinics provide basic women’s care, so do thousands of other medical clinics, most of which don’t kill babies as their primary function.

It’s time Planned Parenthood went the way of the dinosaur. I’m disgusted every time I think about the millions of lives lost — butchered — by an organization predicated on killing our young. It’s preposterous; no truly civilized society should tolerate it. (Related: Follow more news about abortions at Abortions.news.)

And I’m sickened when I see fools from Hollywood celebrate so much death while having the temerity to call President Trump vile and barbaric.

Why Celebrities Are Suddenly Sharing (Really) Embarrassing Photos Of Themselves

By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

If you’ve been paying any attention to the internet lately, you’ll notice that a hoard of celebrities have shared embarrassing pictures of themselves. The dorky photos are doing more than inspiring people to smile, they’re raising money for relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

During a segment on The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert and television actor Nick Kroll called on their celebrity friends to post pre-pubescent pictures to social media using the hashtag #PuberMe.

Funniness aside, the duo agreed that for every celebrity who posted an embarrassing teen photo, they would donate a certain amount of money to relief efforts. Reportedly, they will continue donating “until we run out of money.”

The aid can’t come soon enough to residents in Puerto Rico. After the island was hit by a Category 4 storm named Hurricane Maria approximately one-and-a-half weeks ago, its 3.5 million citizens have been without power. Unfortunately, the electrical grid is expected to be off-line for the next couple of months.

Since Colbert and Kroll made the announcement Wednesday night, dozens of stars have posted goofy photos of themselves as teenagers. They include former New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg, Broadway star Lin-Manuel Miranda and talk show hosts Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Kimmel.

It’s safe to say people can’t get enough. And fortunately, all of the entertainment is raising funds for an important cause.
