Willie Nelson Rescued 70 Horses From A Slaughterhouse And Let Them Roam Free On His Ranch

As if you need another reason to love Willie Nelson, news has recently surfaced that the musician and cannabis activist is also a horse lover. He’s so fond of them that he rescued 70 horses from being slaughtered. They now roam on his 700-acre ranch in Texas.

The country musician spends most of his time at Luck Ranch when he’s not on the road. The ranch is home to him and the name “Luck” suits in more ways than one. Nelson told Paul Venema from KSAT 12 News“When you’re here, you’re in Luck, and when you’re not, you’re out of Luck.”

The horses are undoubtedly lucky, too and Nelson agrees. He told Venema:

“My horses are probably the luckiest horses in the world. They get hand-fed twice a day, and they were just ready to go to slaughter is probably the last thing they remembered, so they’re happy horses.”

As The Epoch Times reports, Nelson has long held a love for horses. His song Ride Me Back Home, for instance, attests to his love for the animal. Nelson also won an award in 2015 for the video to his song The Love of Horses. The video shows Nelson meeting members of Habitats for Horses who were trying to end the slaughter of horses by working to get new legislation passed.

A love for horses runs in the family. Nelson’s son, Lukas, supports Saving America’s Horses as well as Habitat for Horses. And the younger Nelson’s band, Lukas Nelson & Promise, have likewise sung praise for horses.

Presale tickets and Premium packages are available NOW for Willie’s 5/23/15 show at North Star Mohican Casino Resort in Bowler, WI!

Nelson, who is nearly 90-years-old, shows no signs of slowing down or staying silent about issues he feels passionately about. (Remember his album against Monsanto?) 

When asked about retirement, Nelson simply stated:

“I retire after every show. I say, ‘That’s it, I’m not goin’ no more,’ but then we hang out awhile and people [the band] feel like playing, and so we go play again.”

Kanye West Announces That He Plans On Running For President

In a tweet on Saturday, he announced his intentions of running for President.

(TMU) – The controversial rapper and entrepreneur Kanye West has stated in numerous interviews over the past few years that he has been preparing for a career in politics, but now he has taken it a bit further with a tweet announcing his intentions of running for president.

It is not entirely clear if he plans on running for office this year, because it is extremely late in the campaign process and pretty much impossible to make a serious effort at this point, but his tweet did end with the hashtag “#2020 vision.”

In a Twitter post on Saturday night, West sent out a Tweet to his followers that read, “We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States … #2020VISION.”

During a 2018 interview with Power 92.3’s DJ Pharris Kanye promised that the music industry would be strong under his reign as president.

“One of my main things [I’ll address] once I’m president is the medical industry. I’m going to make sure that the medical industry flourishes. There’s one thing I learned by hanging around with Jay-Z, and being married to my wife, is you can’t f**k up the paper.. That’s the problem with a lot of the radical leaders in the past,” he said.

Kanye West has become extremely controversial in recent years due to his public support of Donald Trump. However, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have used their influence with Trump to have multiple nonviolent offenders released from prison. It is not clear if West plans to run as a Democrat, Republican, or with a third party.

In many interviews given after his apparent mental breakdown a few years ago, West said that he disagreed with many of Trump’s policies, but had admiration for him because of the fact that he opened the door for other celebrities to become presidents.

He stated on numerous occasions that he intends to follow Trump’s lead in using his celebrity status to secure political power.

West is not the only rapper to recently express interest in getting involved in politics. As The Mind Unleashed reported earlier this year, Cardi B has said that she would be interested in running for office. Killer Mike of the rap duo Run The Jewels has also said that he plans on running for office at some point.

Other celebrities, like Dwayne Johnson aka “The Rock,” have also suggested that they could make a run for the presidential office in the future.

Someday it might be possible to see some of your favourite rappers or actors perform on a debate stage to compete for your vote, but the chances are slim that they could do much worse than the people who have been running the country for generations.

Last year, we reported that Kanye West has plans to help build low-income housing for the homeless in California, but for some reason, he wants the buildings to look like Luke Skywalker’s childhood home.

Ghislaine Maxwell Arrested By FBI On Charges Connected To Jeffrey Epstein

What Happened: Jeffrey Epstein’s confidant Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested this morning in New Hampshire according to FBI spokeswoman Adrienne Senatore. At this time, charges against Maxwell are sealed, and prosecutors have scheduled a midday press conference in New York to provide more details on the case.

Charges against Maxwell came almost a year after Epstein was arrested by FBI agents on July 6, 2019. Jeffrey Epstein allegedly killed himself in a federal jail in August 2019, although many believe he was killed given he could name many high profile figures connected to his ring.

Why It Matters: Maxwell is heavily connected to sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein who operated a sex/pedophile ring that tailored to high profile individuals, business people, entertainers and politicians.

Her arrest may be important in helping to bring down more people connected to the ring which include Hillary and Bill Clinton amongst other high profile names.

Humanity is in a process of ‘Breaking the Illusion’ we have come to accept about our reality. We have been living from a collective story that states we elect good people into government, and they act on our best interest. This categorically is not the case, and part of our collective awakening to creating solutions that can make our world thrive is waking up from this illusion we have chosen to accept.

People are beginning to learn en masse that high profile figures are involved in such acts like extreme occult rituals, sex trafficking and pedophilia, and they are beginning to wonder why. They are also beginning to question why we put our trust and support in people who operate in this manner.

Lockdown & Quarantine In The UK May Have Already Killed More Seniors Than Covid-19

Published

A new report published in the British Medical Journal  titled Covid-19: “Staggering number” of extra deaths in community is not explained by covid-19″  has suggested that quarantine measures in the United Kingdom as a result of the new coronavirus may have already killed more UK seniors than the coronavirus has during the months of April and May. According to the data, Covid-19 only accounts for 10,000 of the 30,000 excess deaths that have been recorded in senior care facilities during the height of the pandemic. The article suggests and also quotes British Health officials stating that these unexplained deaths may have occurred because Quarantine measures have prevented seniors from accessing the health care that they need.

The report was written by Shaun Griffin, a PhD in DNA repair from UCL. He has worked in communications and public affairs roles for 20 years at Wellcome, UK Biobank, Human Tissue Authority and the Nuffield Council on Bioethics. He is currently at the Association of Medical Research Charities and is vice chair of a research ethics committee.

According to him,

David Spiegelhalter, chair of the Winton Centre for Risk and Evidence Communication at the University of Cambridge, said that covid-19 did not explain the high number of deaths taking place in the community. At a briefing hosted by the Science Media Centre on 12 May he explained that, over the past five weeks, care homes and other community settings had had to deal with a “staggering burden” of 30 000 more deaths than would normally be expected, as patients were moved out of hospitals that were anticipating high demand for beds.

Of those 30 000, only 10 000 have had covid-19 specified on the death certificate. While Spiegelhalter acknowledged that some of these “excess deaths” might be the result of under-diagnosis, “the huge number of unexplained extra deaths in homes and care homes is extraordinary. When we look back . . . this rise in non-covid extra deaths outside the hospital is something I hope will be given really severe attention.”

He added that many of these deaths would be among people “who may well have lived longer if they had managed to get to hospital.

David Leon, professor of epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, agreed. “Some of these deaths may not have occurred if people had got to hospital,” he said. “How many is unclear. This issue needs urgent attention, and steps taken to ensure that those who would benefit from hospital treatment and care for other conditions can get it.”

The report also mentions that in Scotland, in the first week after lockdown, a spike in deaths was recorded from all causes.

The Takeaway

At the end of the day, the coronavirus pandemic has clearly been a catalyst for more people to speak up against misinformation and measures being imposed on the human race that a lot of people disagree with. Information has surfaced calling into question the measures that have been taken so far, and information that comes from credible sources and has evidence to support is being labelled as “fake news. For example, YouTube is removing any content that contradicts the world health organization, and some of the world’s leading scientists and epidemiologists on this topic have been completely censored. It just doesn’t make sense.

Judge Rules That Children Must Be Released From Immigration Detention Centers

US District Judge Dolly Gee ordered the release of children who are currently being held in the country’s immigration detention centers.

(TMU) – In a ruling on Friday, US District Judge Dolly Gee ordered the release of children who are currently being held in the country’s immigration detention centres, over concerns that keeping people in such conditions could exacerbate the spread of the ‘COVID-19coronavirus.

In her ruling, Gee said that children who have been held for more than 20 days at ICE family residential centres should be released by July 17 to “non-congregate settings” that include “suitable sponsors” and possibly even to their own parents in some cases.

The order also left the door open for the release of the parents as well, so they can be reunited with their children. However, the order does not compel ICE to release the parents, as it does with the children; it leaves that part up to the agency’s discretion, which may not be favourable.

Still, the agency will be required to release the children. Gee suggested that if ICE felt uncomfortable about releasing the parents outright, they could release them with ankle bracelets or other tracking devices.

Gee wrote that the centres “are ‘on fire’ and there is no more time for half measures.”

The judge pointed to employees and detainees who tested positive for the virus in both Texas and Kansas, and condemned the “unevenly implemented written protocols,” at these locations.

In addition to the release of the child detainees, the judge ordered ICE facilities to “urgently enforce its existing COVID-19 protocols,” which includes testing, mask use, and social distancing. 

Judge Gee has been active in pushing for the release of children held at these facilities since long before the pandemic began. In a decision late last year, the judge ruled that ICE must abide by the Flores agreement, a 1997 settlement that sets standards for how the government can treat migrant children.

Following the lengthy trial stemming from the arrest of multiple children who were crossing the border, including Jenny Lisette Flores, the US government agreed to numerous terms regarding the treatment of children by immigration agencies.

Among other things, the federal government agreed to keep children in the least restrictive setting possible and to ensure the prompt release of children from immigration detention.

According to a Congressional Research Service (CRS) report published in September of 2018, the Flores agreement was intended as a temporary measure. In the ruling, the government agreed that the agreement would remain in effect for 45 days, which would give the government time to form official legislation to replace it.

However, the government never published any follow-up legislation, so the Flores Agreement still stands as a legal precedent.

The Trump administration has called the agreement a “loophole,” and suggested that judge Gee is an “activist judge” who is trying to undermine the rule of law.

“For two and a half years, this Administration has worked to restore faithful enforcement of the laws enacted by Congress, while activist judges have imposed their own vision in the place of those duly enacted laws,” a statement from the White House press secretary said, according to NBC News.
