Donald Trump Vows To Protect Gay Rights, Keeps Obama’s LGBTQ Protection Policies

The White House said on Monday, January 30, 2017 that President Donald Trump would leave in place a 2014 Obama administration order that created new workplace protections for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.
In a statement issued in response to growing questions about whether Mr. Trump would reverse the Obama order, the White House said the president was proud to embrace gay rights.
“President Trump continues to be respectful and supportive of L.G.B.T.Q. rights, just as he was throughout the election,” the statement said. “The president is proud to have been the first ever G.O.P. nominee to mention the L.G.B.T.Q. community in his nomination acceptance speech, pledging then to protect the community from violence and oppression.”
The decision to keep the order, the statement added, was Mr. Trump’s. It uses stronger language than any Republican president has before in favor of equal legal protections for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, though that is not likely …

Senators Saraki, Ekweremadu, Dogara Accused Of N630 Million Fraud - By CATBAN

A Civil Society organisation, Citizens Action to Take Back Nigeria (CATBAN) has accused Nigerian senate president, his deputy and the speaker of the Federal House of Representative of ‘a huge financial fraud and corruption amounting to N630,125,499.90.
Read the Statement here: The National Assembly as an independent arm of government has all its statutory earnings and allowances properly fixed and spelt out by the Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC) Act, 2002. This same law gives the National Assembly the power and control over her own budget and expenditure, including payment of all forms of allowances, and according to the RMAFC the remuneration package for political, public and judicial office holders is calculated in relation to the percentages of their annual basic salaries. For example, each Nigerian Senator receives 150% of his/her annual basic salary as accommodation allowance while each member of our Federal House of Representatives gets same equivale…

A MUST READ! How Donald Trump's Executive Order Will Affect Nigerians!

What this means is that there will be no more dropbox service for Nigerian American visa renewal. You know as you used to send your Passport through mail and also collect it by mail, and don't have to do any interviews again after you've been given a US Visa for the first time, that has stopped under Donald Trump's new executive order. It doesn't matter how many times you have been to the USA, under this new immigration policy, once your visa expires, you have to go for an interview at the embassy to get it renewed or cancelled.
In an executive order signed on (Jan. 27), US president Donald Trump instructed the State Department to immediately suspend the US’s Visa Interview Waiver Program.
It’s an interesting action by a president who has made trade a central tenet of his policy platform, since it could, in the short term, inconvenience many frequent visitors to the US (and even dissuade them from visiting) by forcing them to have a face-to-face interview with a US consu…

A MUCH READ/WATCH; Very Strong Language, Please! Family ‘Dumped Man With Dementia In UK Car Park Then Flew Back To America Without Him

An elderly man’s wife and son stand accused of taking him to Britain and abandoning him in a car park, before flying home to America. Roger Curry, who has dementia, was abandoned at a bus station two years ago with no ID, wearing only brand new clothes from Tesco, American court documents allege. He was found at Hereford bus station on November 2015in company of two men who flagged down a passing ambulance.
As paramedics assessed him, one of the men – described as having an American accent, but younger than Mr Curry – vanished from the scene, leaving the elderly man to be cared for at a nursing home while police and social services tried to ascertain his identity.
The clue to his identity came following a police appeal on BBC Midlands in March last year.  After watching the news report, viewer Debbie Cocker searched the internet and found an old picture that looked like a younger version of the unidentified man. 
The photo came from a 1958 yearbook for Edmonds High School in Washington S…

The Travails Of Apostle Johnson Suleiman And The Inciting Words Of The Sultan Of Sokoto (Part 1) -By Femi Fani Kayode

"You want to arrest Christian clergymen who asked Christians to defend themselves against killer FULANI Herdsmen while you allow hundreds of foreign FULANI herdsmen invading Nigeria to kill and maim CHRISTIANS and take over their lands! DSS, tread softly!  Do not play into the hands of chaos! We are waiting for DSS to arrest the kill and go FULANI herdsmen!" The Buhari administration is literally playing Russian roulette with this matter. They are playing with fire and it may well end up burning them badly and consuming the whole of Nigeria. They are sitting on a keg of gunpowder and it may well end up blowing up in their faces
Owojaiye's point is as pertinent as it is clear. His counsel to the DSS is unassailable and timely.
They would do well to take his advice, leave Suleman alone and, instead of harassing him, go after those who commit mass murder, ethnic cleansing and genocide against northern Christians at the drop of a hat and those who encourage, incite and pay them …

Gov. El-Rufai Must Produce Herdsmen He Paid To Stop Killing Christians – Apostle Suleman

The General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has asked the Federal Government to compel the Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, to produce Fulani herdsmen to whom money was paid so as to disabuse the minds of Nigerians that Christians are not the target of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
In a statement issued by Phrank Shaibu, his Communications Adviser, in Abuja on Sunday, Apostle Suleman said failure to compel El-Rufai to produce the herdsmen who purportedly collected money from the Kaduna State Government is an indication of the insincerity of the Buhari administration.
He said: “The Governor of Kaduna State confessed that he paid money to some Fulani herdsmen as compensation to stop the killings in Southern Kaduna. That means he knows those who have committed atrocities against Christians. He must be made to produce them to answer to charges of murder and other crimes.”
Apostle Suleman’s statement came ahead of the invitation by the D…

A MUST READ; Man Gets A Bionic Penis He Could Not Deal With For The First Two Weeks {VIDEO}

Adam Wardle, from the UK, was born with a rare condition called bladder exstrophy. As the name suggests, his condition causes his bladder to form outside his body, viralthread.com reports. Although his testicles were normal, he had no penis. Wardle spent his childhood going under the knife in an attempt to restore normal function to his urinary system
It turns out that penises aren’t all about sex. Without a penis to protect his bladder from the outside world, Wardle’s body isn’t able to fend off nasty urinary tract infections. Having a functional penis will reduce the number of kidney infections and other complications Wardle still faces from his condition.
Thankfully, pioneering new medical treatments in the UK means that Daniel is about to finally get the functioning penis he’s always dreamed of. A year and a half since he first went public about his condition, Wardle’s penis is nearly complete. It’s been installed and built using skin from his arm, and just needs one more operation …

Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg Voices Concern Over Trump's Latest Executive Order!

Following President Trump's latest executive order on Friday, banning certain countries and holders of dual citizenship of certain countries from entry into the United States and the suspension of refugees from Syria, Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg made a post in which he expressed his concern.
Mr Zuckerberg wrote; "My great grandparents came from Germany, Austria and Poland. Priscilla's parents were refugees from China and Vietnam. The United States is a nation of immigrants, and we should be proud of that. Like many of you, I'm concerned about the impact of the recent executive orders signed by President Trump" Zuckerberg wrote in a Facebook post, which cited his family's immigrant background and his volunteer work with undocumented schoolchildren.
"We should also keep our doors open to refugees and those who need help. That's who we are. Had we turned away refugees a few decades ago, Priscilla's family wouldn't be here today" Zuckerbe…

Christian Association Of Nigeria (CAN) Issues A Statement Over the Continued Threat On Christianity In Nigeria, Attacks On Pastors, Slams VP Osinbajo's Deafening Silence!

The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, issues a statement in defence of Apostle Johnson Suleman, the founder and president of Omega Fire Ministry Worldwide following attempted arrest by the DSS on Tuesday. CAN wasted no time in slamming Vice president   Pastor Yemi Osinbajo over his deafening silence in the face of continued attacks on Christians by the Muhammadu Buhari regime.
The statement read; “Apostle Suleman has become a refugee in Ekiti state as security operatives are said to be searching every nook and cranny of the state with a view to arresting him,” CAN said.
“If there is an urgent need to interrogate Apostle Suleman on any issue, it would only have been proper to extend a formal or informal invitation to him from the SSS rather than Gestapo approach used in the attempt to arrest him.
“It should be noted that under Nigerian Laws, he is presumed innocent until a court of law proves otherwise. Or have they extended the proposed obnoxious law that forbids religious preaching …

Canada Announce Visa Lottery Program

Parliament of Canada today approved a visa lottery program similar to the U.S DV visa lottery which will give opportunity to winners to settle in Canada, work and obtain Canadian Citizenship after 4 years for 16 eligible countries.
Prior to the approval of this bill, Canada used to run the Highly Skilled Migrant Program which is tailored for skilled workers from certain categories to enter and work in Canada. Eligible countries include Oman, Ethiopia, Philippines, Ghana, Guyana, Jamaica, Nigeria, Gambia, Cameroon, Kenya, Pakistan, Zambia, Thailand, Uganda,Fiji and Lesotho.
Under the new visa lottery program, every winner is required to have obtained at least a high school education or its equivalent or have two years of recent work experience in an occupation that requires at least two years of training or experience. Vocational training is also considered a substitute for high school education unlike the U.S. DV Lottery.
Canadian Immigration and Citizenship encourages applicants to appl…
