This is just so very, very wrong. Sorry, that’s just the way I see it. A man who is pretending to be a woman is now a model for Victoria’s Secret. The brand has been the landing place of countless beautiful women who model sexy lingerie… and in the name of twisted diversity, a man will now be part of the models that grace that runway. This is a form of mental illness and everywhere you look these days, we are encouraging it.
Valentina Sampaio of Brazil will be the first transgender model for Victoria’s Secret. Almost every woman I know, including myself, have shopped there at one time or another. Scratch another warped business model from my shopping list. This happened less than a year after the lingerie company came under fire after an executive made remarks about transgender people walking in its annual fashion show. My how times have changed and not for the better.
Sampaio previously made history as the first transgender model to appear on the cover of Vogue magazine, ET reports. She graced the cover of the March 2017 issue of Vogue Paris.
From The Daily Wire:
“Speculation as to Sampaio’s inclusion among the Victoria’s Secret roster began when the transgender model posted a photo of himself at a shoot with “VS Pink” on Instagram. Shortly thereafter, the Brazilian model Lais Ribeiro tweeted that she was “so happy” that Sampaio experienced his first photoshoot with Victoria’s Secret.
“The inclusion of Sampaio comes months after L. Brands’ (parent company of Victoria’s Secret) Chief Marketing Officer Ed Razek sparked the ire of social justice leftists when he told Vogue that little interest exists for plus-size and trans models on the runway.
“I think we address the way the market is shifting on a constant basis. If you’re asking if we’ve considered putting a transgender model in the show or looked at putting a plus-size model in the show, we have,” Razek said, adding that the sister division, Lane Bryant, was created to fill that consumer need.
“We invented the plus-size model show in what was our sister division, Lane Bryant,” he continued. “Lane Bryant still sells plus-size lingerie, but it sells a specific range, just like every specialty retailer in the world sells a range of clothing. As do we.”
“We market to who we sell to, and we don’t market to the whole world,” he said. “We attempted to do a television special for plus-sizes [in 2000]. No one had any interest in it, still don’t.”

“After significant backlash on social media, Razek later apologized, admitting his comments on trans models were “insensitive.”
“My remark regarding the inclusion of transgender models in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show came across as insensitive,” he said in a statement. “I apologize. To be clear, we absolutely would cast a transgender model for the show. We’ve had transgender models come to castings … and like many others, they didn’t make it. … But it was never about gender. I admire and respect their journey to embrace who they really are.”
“Shortly thereafter, People confirmed that Victoria’s Secret’s CEO Jan Singer would be leaving the company, though no details were provided as to why. A week later, L Brands’ chairman and chief executive officer Leslie H. Wexner released a statement saying, “I wish Jan well. I greatly appreciate her passion and know she will succeed in whatever she pursues next. We appreciate all that she brought to the brand.”‘
Many are not happy with this trend and I agree. Back in 2017, Playboy introduced their first-ever transgender playmate — Ines Rau. It was not good for business but they did it anyway. The move drew immediate criticism on social media, with former porn star Jenna Jameson leading the way. “I have a problem with it just like I have a problem with a transgender competing against biological women in sports,” Jameson tweeted. “I think it’s setting fire to an iconic brand and pandering to this ridiculous PC world we live in.” I totally agree.
This insanity has sped up since Caitlyn Jenner appeared on the scene. You can measure the life of a nation or people by their morality and that is hitting rock bottom here in the US these days. This is a prime example of that. Not to mention the sheer insanity of it all and how it insults women in general. I don’t care how beautiful the man claiming to be a woman is… he’s still a man.
The annual fashion show has suffered from diminishing ratings for several years, and, according to Angel Shanina Shaik, the 2019 show has been canceled. It was initially reported that the show just wouldn’t be televised. This won’t help their ratings… quite the opposite. While Victoria’s Secret has built a $7 billion lingerie empire on the idea that “sex sells,” declining profits and criticism of the company may mean a revamp is coming. I think it may be too little, too late. Just sayin’.

B-List Actors Alyssa Milano & Rosie O’Donnell Head Trump ‘Impeachment Task Force’
You would think this is hilarious satire..but it’s not. Has-been actors truly believe that America looks to them for political advice. I know..I can’t stop laughing.
This is how insane and delusional the left is. Remember how they told us to accept the 2008 election results and just deal with it? Here we are…and they still can’t handle that Trump is President. They stay on twitter for hours..ranting, whining and lying about the President. The left should never ever allowed in power. Let these lunatics be a reminder to you when you go to vote in 2020.
Dear Hollywood has-beens, Americans don’t give a flying crap about what you have to say. You ain’t going to impeach the President. He’s not going anywhere. For the sake of America..go away. Don’t lecture the people about politics. No one looks to you for what’s going on in our country.
Just wait until Trump wins 2020…..
Via The Daily Wire:
If you’re worried about the current state of democracy, fear not: Alyssa Milano, Rosie O’Donnell, and their rich anti-Trump friends are here to save America … by working to remove the duly elected president from office.
Feel better now?
According to a Newsweek report, a group called The Democratic Coalition has created a star-studded “Impeachment Task Force” (seriously) “seeking to hold Trump ‘accountable for his betrayal of America.’”
The task force is “designed to lead rapid response to Trump during the impeachment inquiry,” according to The Democratic Coalition co-founder and Twitter #Resistance king Scott Dworkin.
We are now 33% towards our goal for the #ImpeachmentTaskForce! Help us get over the finish line so we can focus on the real work—and not fundraising. You can help out by donating, tweeting out the link and telling others to tweet out the link as well. Thx! https://t.co/dVCUJYq9tg
— Scott Dworkin (@funder) October 4, 2019
In addition to Milano and O’Donnell, the group has landed actors Ron Perlman, George Takei, Debra Messing, and Tom Arnold to use their “massive social media following to protect House Democrats in the front lines of the impeachment inquiry on Trump.”
“The task force launched a fundraising effort and basic plan on Thursday. The group has already started meeting and is set to go live with its website next week,” Newsweek reported.
Dworkin pointed to “Trump’s propaganda machine” as motivation in the creation of his elite task force.
“Trump’s propaganda machine is going to be in overdrive for the foreseeable future, so we need to be fighting every day, in every way,” he said.
“For now, impeachment is the only way to hold him accountable for his betrayal of America,” the task force’s chairman Jon Cooper added.
Dworkin is extremely optimistic that his ragtag group of celebs “will without a doubt, absolutely, overpower Trump’s propaganda machine.”
As you might recall, during the 2016 presidential election, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton had scores of celebrities come out to support her publicly — such as Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, LeBron James, Beyoncé, Jay Z, Bruce Springsteen, Robert De Niro, Lady Gaga, Jon Bon Jovi, Meryl Streep, Amy Schumer, and many, many others. As you might also recall, Hillary lost the 2016 election.
But it’s different this time. Or something.
“We’ve been one of the key groups fighting his propaganda machine for three and a half years,” Dworkin bragged. “We’ve learned a lot. And it’s kind of led us to this moment.”

WATCH: Photo Of College Student Praying Over Deputy In Restaurant Goes VIRAL
In today’s highly charged political climate, it’s always nice to have something in the news that isn’t negative. Last weekend, we got some rare, good news for a change.
A sheriff’s deputy & his wife were dining at a restaurant in east-central Florida when they were approached by a young man who asked if he could pray for the officer.
The encounter left the deputy’s wife in tears, and the rest of us cheering.
The Tampa Bay Times reported:
“For all of the venom and vitriol that fill our social media feeds, there are feel-good stories, too.
A reminder came this past weekend, when the wife of a Florida deputy shared a photo on Facebook describing an encounter at a Zaxby’s restaurant in DeLand in which a young man approached her husband, Cameron, and offered to pray over him for his protection.
“Tonight was a night that I will never forget. This picture is a reminder of God’s constant love and perfect timing. Tonight we had an amazing encounter with an incredible young man named Juan. He came up to Cameron and asked is he could pray over him and his protection. After crying my eyes out we got to have an amazing conversation with this gentleman. He was on FIRE for God and you could feel His presence in the room. He said that he had felt compelled to talk to us and to pray over Cameron, Justine Tucker wrote.”
Tonight was a night that I will never forget. This picture is a reminder of God’s constant love and perfect timing….
“The man, Juan O’Neal, is a student at Stetson University, according to his Facebook page.
As of Wednesday morning, the post had more than 42,000 reactions, 4,900 comments and 21,000 shares.
The post especially connected with Facebook users thirsting for positive news about people in their community.
“This is one of the main reasons why I stay connected to FB,” responded Reginald D. Alston. “There is love, kindness, compassion, respect, and general sense of caring among most people that seems to take a backseat to negativity and chaos all too often.”
“With everything that is wrong in America today, thank you for sharing this,” wrote Emily Broome Garrison. “It’s proof there’s still so much that is right!”
“People need these stories,” echoed Rachelle Bman.
Said Max Ludwig, “It’s great to wake up and see a beautiful post like this.”
“This gave me goosebumps!” wrote Monica Diaz.
Wondered Robert Cuccio, “Why are there not more stories of wonderful people like Juan?”
Tucker posted a segment from the local Fox station that covered the interaction.

WTVM9 reported of O’Neal:
“O’Neal says he never intended for the photo to go viral. In fact, he didn’t intend for a photo to be taken at all.
He says that he simply wanted to pray over Volusia County Sheriff’s Deputy Cameron Tucker.
“He grew up you know, dad is a [retired] police officer, a [retired] detective with the Columbus Police Department. So he knows some of the struggles, some of the things his dad had to go through,” said Juan’s mother Leisa O’Neal. “So for him to see another officer, he had an instant connection I’m sure, so it’s no big deal. I’m sure he was compelled to pray for him for everything that is going on in the world and the community so I think it was something he felt like he needed to do.”
“I just did what I felt like God was telling me to do,” said Juan O’Neal.
Juan is a senior at Stetson University in Florida. His mother says he is planning on commissioning into the U.S. Army in May.”
While all around us we seem to be bombarded with negativity, it’s great to see some of the next generation who haven’t forgotten what’s important in this life.
Hats off to O’Neal, and may he be successful in his endeavors.
