Senate confirms Muslim for top religious freedom position
In this position, Hussain will serve as the highest-ranking member in the State Department for advancing international religious freedom in U.S. foreign policy.
President Biden nominated Hussain for the position back in July, calling on him to fill the role formerly held by Samuel Brownback under the Trump administration.
Hussain was born in Wyoming to Indian-American parents and is the first Muslim to hold the post of Religious Freedom Ambassador. He served under the Obama administration, where he spearheaded efforts on countering antisemitism and protecting religious minorities in Muslim-majority countries.
International Christian Concern said, “Mr. Hussain has a proven track record of addressing persecution around the world.”
Baldwin’s iPhone sought by police in ‘rust’ fatal shooting probe
Almost two months after the fatal shooting of “Rust” cinematographer Halyna Hutchins by Alec Baldwin on the New Mexico set of a low-budget Western, Santa Fe police want to look at the Emmy winner’s iPhone for more information, reports Deadline.com.
Initially, the “Rust” star/producer’s lawyers refused to hand over the requested phone without an explicit warrant — which the cops now have.
This is the fifth search warrant so far in the investigation of the movie set fatality.
Teachers secretly coach student to change gender
A leaked audio recording reveals two teachers at a recent California Teachers Association conference mocking parents over their concerns about homosexual and transgender indoctrination at school, says a source who attended the event in Palm Springs, California.
The recording, obtained by The Epoch Times, captured two seventh-grade teachers employed by Buena Vista Middle School in Salinas, California, telling other teachers how to recruit students into LGBTQ clubs at school, also known as “Gay-Straight Alliance” clubs.
Rebecca Murphy, the source of the information, said, “It was horrifying to listen to not just one teacher, but really all of the teachers in all of these seminars, excoriating parents.”
Murphy attended the teachers union conference in late October. She told The Epoch Times the teachers “mocked” parents for their concerns, and suggested they know better than parents about what’s best for their children. She said, “They laughed at the parents.”
The sold-out California Teachers Association conference, billed as the “2021 LGBTQ+ Issues Conference, Beyond the Binary: Identity & Imagining Possibilities,” was held October 29 to 31.
Worse yet, two teachers in the California school district are accused of coaching a student into coming out as transgender behind the backs of the student’s parents, according to video footage circulating on social media, reports The Daily Signal.
School staff reportedly changed the student’s name and pronouns and called Child Protective Services when the parents objected to the gender transition, according to a Twitter thread by LibsofTikTok posted early Thursday morning.
Listen to the outraged parent of the student whose name and pronouns were changed without her knowledge.
PARENT: “Did you think that no parent would ever come forward? You will not quiet me today! I will stand here today and protect my child, along with every other child who has not come forward yet.
“Do they have psychiatry degrees that I was unaware of? Because I didn’t hire them. Okay? I did not hire them to sit there and nitpick my child’s brain. You took away my ability to parent my child, even before I had any knowledge.
“Your job was to educate my child in math, science, English, etc. Do your job and let me do mine! (Clapping) Miss Caldera, you’re guilty! Miss Brockie, you’re guilty! You changed her personal documentation, her gender, her name her email.”
Pro-life groups slam Biden’s selection of pro-abortion ‘radical’ to head FDA
And finally, pro-life groups have condemned President Joe Biden’s nomination of a “pro-abortion radical” to lead the Food and Drug Administration, reports the Christian Post.
Dr. Robert Califf’s nomination has received renewed attention after members of the Senate Health Committee questioned him Tuesday at his confirmation hearing. Biden announced Califf as his choice to serve as commissioner of the FDA last month. If confirmed, Califf would regain the role he briefly held during the latter part of the Obama administration.
Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, said, “Robert Califf is the wrong choice for FDA commissioner.” She expressed concerns about Califf’s actions to promote and increase the use of chemical abortions (abortion pills) during his previous tenure.
And Kristan Hawkins, the president of Students for Life of America, wrote a letter to members of the Senate’s Health, Education, Labor and Pension Committee expressing opposition to Califf’s confirmation. She said that under Robert Califf’s previous tenure in 2016, he allowed chemical abortion pills to be used as late as 10 weeks in pregnancy.
She said, “Additionally, women were no longer required to ingest the Chemical Abortion pills at the abortion facility dispensing the drugs. Instead, women were encouraged to take the drugs at home, essentially acting as an amateur abortionist and DIY-ing their own abortion.”
According to Proverbs 6:17, one of the seven things that God hates, is “hands that shed innocent blood.”
Call your two Senators today at 202-224-3121 and ask them to oppose Robert Califf, a pro-abortion radical. He should not lead the FDA. That’s 202-224-3121.
