This story is probably just more bull brought to you by the media

1 in 5 millennials identifies as LGBTQ, according to new GLAAD survey

Consider the source of this survey and their agenda.
From Sacramento BeeTwenty percent of 18- to 34-year-olds self-identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer, according to a new survey conducted by Harris Poll on behalf of GLAAD.
The survey, conducted online, was conducted in early November and included 2,037 American adults. GLAAD released the findings in its “Accelerating Acceptance 2017” report.
The percentage of millennials identifying as LGBTQ far exceeds the percentages in other age groups — 12 percent of 35- to 51-year-olds, 7 percent of 52- to 71-year-olds and 5 percent of those 72 and older.
This report shows a remarkable new era of understanding and acceptance among young people — an inspiring indication of the future. Though laws can be unwritten, hearts and minds in America have been changed for the better — and that is a reality less easily unraveled,” said Sarah Kate Ellis, GLAAD’s president and CEO.
In another question, 84 percent of millennials identify as “strictly heterosexual,” according to the survey. Six percent identify as bisexual, 4 percent as asexual, 3 percent as strictly gay or lesbian, 2 percent as pansexual (not limited in sexual choice with regard to biological sex, gender or gender identity) and 1 percent as unsure or questioning.
Four percent of respondents identify as transgender and strictly heterosexual, accounting for the differences in percentages in the first two questions.
Again, larger percentages of older populations identify as strictly heterosexual — 91 percent or higher in all other groups.
The numbers in GLADD’s report are far higher than other findings about the sexual orientation of the population.
According to a 2015 Gallup Poll, only 3.8 percent of the adult population identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. Americans, however, estimated that 23 percent of the population was gay or lesbian.
A 2013 survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, found that 96.6 percent of adults identified as straight with 1.6 considering themselves gay and less than 1 percent identifying as bisexual.
A slew of other polls, outlined by HeatStreet, found the percentages between 3.4 percent and 8 percent.

The article doesn't explain ifs they think he is the greatest leader of all time or just this year. Either way, this is a marvelous example of what a PR agent can do.  Shame on Theo for allowing an article like this to be published.

Such a loss would surely be the greatest calamity the state of Illinois has ever faced.

Sneed: Frustrated Senate president John Cullerton might not run again.

Someone please say it is not so.
Sen. President John Cullerton is considering not running for Senate again when his term ends. | Rich Hein 

Sneed hears powerful Illinois Senate President John Cullerton (D-6th) has told some of his closest Senate colleagues he is so frustrated with the budget logjam, he is thinking about not running for re-election when his term is up in two years, according to two sources.

“Cullerton is stressed and frustrated by all the nonsense going on in Springfield and the ability to get things done,” said a source who spoke to Cullerton.

“He indicated he is not going to pull the plug now, but he did say he was considering not running for re-election,” said a state senator who asked to remain anonymous.

“Cullerton is highly respected by his colleagues, but if he isn’t planning on running for re-election, his leadership spot is a coveted position,” said a top Dem source who claims several state senators have already expressed interest in the job.

News of Cullerton’s private intentions comes at a critical time in the state budget crisis. He and fellow Sen. Christine Radogno, a Republican, are working together to break the budget logjam by securing votes for the so-called “grand bargain” legislation.
What will we do?

The need is "extremely urgent"

Meat should be taxed at the wholesale level to raise the price and deter consumption, says a new report from the UN’s International Research Panel (IRP). This will (supposedly) save the environment and prevent global warming.
“I think it is extremely urgent,” said Professor Maarten Hajer of Utrecht University in the Netherlands, lead author of the report. “All of the harmful effects on the environment and on health needs to be priced into food products.”
Hajer and other members of the IRP assert that livestock creates 14.5 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change.
Sneak the tax up on people
Rather than taxing the meat at the retail level (in supermarkets and shops), Hajer recommended taxing it at the wholesale level. “We think it’s better to price meats earlier in the chain, it’s easier,” said Hajer.
“The evidence is accumulating that meat, particularly red meat, is just a disaster for the environment,” agrees Rachel Premack, a columnist for The Washington Post’s Wongblog.
“Agriculture today accounts for for one-third of global greenhouse gas emissions that promote global warming,” says Premack, “and half of those agriculture emissions come from livestock.”
“Agriculture consumes 80 percent of water in the US – most of that being for meat, says Premack. “… For a kilogram of red meat, you need considerably more water than for plant products.”
“Meanwhile, Denmark is considering a recommendation from its ethics council that all red meats should be taxed,” Premack continues. “The council argued in May that Danes were “ethically obliged” to reduce their consumption to curb greenhouse gas emissions.”
The IRP report, which was released in May, “deserves serious consideration in the United States,” said Premack.

He could have been president. It is remarkable how the media can recast someone in the best possible light.

Henry English, Black Panther and community organizer, who ran Black United Fund among other schemes, dead after crash at 73

CHICAGO (STMW) - Even in his 70s, Henry English was perpetually on his way to one event or another. A protest. An organizing meeting. A lobbying trip to Springfield to speak on behalf of the needy.

Mr. English was a dervish-like presence in Chicago’s struggling neighborhoods for more than 40 years, a Black Panther leader who in the 1960s recruited a young Bobby Rush, an organizer for Mayor Harold Washington and the founder

John Kerry is full of it.

Of course his emails are secure. There is much more to this. This BS story was aimed right at Hillary Clinton.
It was breaking news on Tuesday and today the story can hardly be found.
Washington (CNN)Secretary of State John Kerry said that Chinese and Russian hackers are probably reading his emails -- and he writes messages assuming they are.
"It is very likely," Kerry said during an interview on the "CBS Evening News" Tuesday night when asked by host Scott Pelley if he thinks either nation is reading his email.

Jesse Jackson is the biggest domestic terrorist in the USA today. He should butt out of this horrible event and go home. Maybe tend to his ex-con son.

Rev. Jesse Jackson calls South Carolina shootings 'domestic terrorism'

The Rev. Jesse Jackson speaking at Rainbow PUSH Saturday.

Many came for comfort, others for ways to comprehend how a young white man could kill nine African-Americans out of hatred.
Hundreds sat in the pews of the South Side’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition Saturday at a gathering filled with sadness for the men and women slain in a hate crime in South Carolina.
Theodore Dailey III, a Rainbow PUSH volunteer, said he felt a need to be with others to talk about the massacre in Charleston.

“It’s good to come out and converse and just to have a discussion with individuals regarding what transpired,” said Dailey, 59, of Hyde Park. “And hopefully what can happen in the future

The face of mental illness

Another tyrant has slipped into public office.

BLOOMINGTON CITY HALL GOING After reporter FOR QUESTIONING MISUSE OF TAXPAYER MONEY. They want a restraining order preventing him from asking any more questions, his FOI card and his guns. Is this nuts or what?

By Ulysses Arn - 
An extremely troubling assault on the Freedom of the Press is taking place in Bloomington, IL with Mayor Tari Renner at the center of an attempt to silence a local talk radio station and its morning show.
The mayor is unhappy with the station questioning a plan to have the city of Bloomington use some $8 million in taxpayer money to help finance the purchase of a block of buildings downtown. A developer reportedly has plans to turn the buildings into a hotel. In the meantime, the city has and is raising taxes on everything it can to cover a $3 million budget deficit while also giving the city manager a pay raise.
Last Friday Josh "Fistbump" Schmidgall, a reporter with Cities 92.9 FM's morning show hosted by Ian Bayne, was served with a restraining order, filed by Bloomington's Communications Director Nora Dukowitz. Earlier in the week, Schmidgall sought to get answers from Dukowitz at her apartment about the hotel project and the recent pay raise given to the city manager.  When Dukowitz didn't answer the door, Schmidgall placed his business card on the door and left the premises.
At Tuesday night's city council meeting during public comments, Mayor Renner let slip that may have had some role in the restraining order, which seeks to bar Schmidgall from City Hall and to forfeit his Illinois Firearms Owner Identification Card (needed in IL to even touch a firearm legally), as well as his shotgun.
Renner said, "Nobody who is hired by our city has a right to be stalked by someone pretending to be a journalist...I wouldn't be a decent mayor if I let this kind of stuff happen, and I won't."
Earlier in the city council meeting, Mayor Renner gave his version of the incident and the restraining order. Renner reported to the council that the situation was a felony case, that there was an imminent threat of danger posed by Schmidgall,  and that Schmidgall broke into the apartment building.
As local blogger Diane Benjamin pointed out, the City of Normal's police report for the incident disproves every point Renner made.
Renner and Dukowitz have been pressed by Cities 92.9's morning host Ian Bayne and his crew including Schmidgall for weeks regarding the pay raise and hotel project all while Mayor Renner and the city council - minus the board's lone conservative Kevin Lower -  have been increasing utility fees, the city's amusement tax, gasoline tax and more.
Bayne and Schmidgall both say that no answers have been forth coming from City Hall or from the Communications Director Nora Dukowitz for weeks on end; with things getting to the point that City Hall staffers won't even talk to or schedule appointments with anyone representing 92.9.
Renner has had problems with the press in the past. Earlier this year, Renner got into a bunch of hot water and had to apologize after making vile comments on Diane Benjamin's blog.

Obama fights Ebola

Ebola outbreak: Barack Obama 'to pledge US troops to fight virus'

US President Barack Obama is to announce plans on Tuesday to send 3,000 troops to Liberia to help fight the Ebola virus, US officials say.
It is understood the US military will oversee building new treatment centres and help train medical staff.
There has been criticism of the slow international response to the Ebola epidemic in West Africa.
Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea are the worst-hit countries. The outbreak has killed more than 2,400 people.
More than half of those killed by the virus have been in Liberia. The World Health Organization (WHO) warned recently that the country could see thousands of more cases.
United Nations officials will discuss the international response to the outbreak at a meeting in Geneva.
US officials said the aim of the country's anti-Ebola initiative is to:
  • Train up to 500 healthcare workers a week
  • Construct 17 heathcare facilities, each with about 100 beds
  • Establish a joint command based in Monrovia, Liberia, to co-ordinate between US and international relief efforts
  • Distribute home healthcare kits to thousands of households
  • Conduct a home and community-based campaign to train local people in how to handle patients
Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has appealed directly to Mr Obama for help in tackling the outbreak.
Several disease experts have welcomed the US plan, though some also question its focus on Liberia.
"We should see all of West Africa now as one big outbreak," says Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, quoted in The New York Times.
"It's very clear we have to deal with all the areas with Ebola."
On Monday, Ghanaian President John Dramani Mahama said greater and faster outside help was needed.
Ebola spreads between humans by direct contact with infected blood, bodily fluids or organs, or indirectly through contact with contaminated environments.
Liberia at a glance:
  • Infrastructure devastated by a 14-year civil war
  • About 250,000 people killed in the conflict that ended in 2003
  • One doctor to treat nearly 100,000 people before Ebola outbreak
  • Ebola cases this year: 2,046
  • Ebola deaths this year: 1,224
  • Population: 4.4 million
