US councilman holds Captain America shield while getting sworn in

A newly elected city councilman in California, USA paid tribute to one of his heroes by holding a replica Captain America shield as he was sworn in.

San Jose City Councilman Lan Diep, 32, shared a photo of himself holding the red, white and blue shield as he raised his hand to take the oath of office at his first city council meeting.

“My first council meeting. They made me take the oath again,” he wrote.

Diep, a Republican, described himself as a comics nerd and told the Mercury News he considers Captain America the “embodiment of America’s ideals.”

These are the same ideals I hope to live up to as a representative of San Jose,” he said. “Plus, I had this really cool shield I wanted to show off.

The shield is one of only 1,000 limited edition movie-prop replicas from the film Captain America: The First Avenger, which Diep decided to dig out of his closet for the meeting.

I already had my group swearing in, and that was official. That one goes to the state,” he told the Washington Post. “And I had this really cool shield that I never get to show anybody. One of the most patriotic things that you can do is get involved in democracy.

Diep said the idea came to him of using the shield to brighten up the contentious state of American politics.

I don’t want people to assume I assigned more forethought and meaning to this than I did,” he said. “The political landscape as of late has been gloomy. I just wanted to bring a moment of levity to the proceedings.”

He assured he remains committed to taking on the city’s serious issues with the appropriate amount of respect and hopes the attention brought on by the stunt can encourage more people to engage in politics.

“I take the job seriously, of course,” Diep said. “I take myself less seriously. I’m not above entertaining people in hopes that they will wade through the policy discussions.”

Nigerian Parents Arrested After Teen Son Dies During Religious Fast

A Nigerian couple have been arrested in the US after their 15-year-old son reportedly died during a 40-day religious fast.

Kehinde Omosebi, 49, and Titilayo Omosebi, 48, of Reedsburg, were on Tuesday charged with child neglect causing death and child neglect causing great bodily harm.

The father was said to have walked to the Reedburg police station on Sunday, to report his son had died on Friday, Chief Timothy Becker said.

Investigators who went to the Omosebi home reportedly had to force their way in, as the doors was padlocked on the inside. No food was discovered in the home. They found the “extremely emaciated and deceased” teenager, and also found a gaunt 11-year-old child, along with his mother, Titilayo, who was also undernourished, according to the report.

The father, Kehinde, told authorities that the family began fasting on July 19, and that he was a “religious minister affiliated with Cornerstone Reformation Ministries,” which is believed by police to have been made up.

The mother and 11-year-old were transported to a hospital. The mother reportedly refused medical treatment due to religious reasons, and was taken to the Sauk County Jail.

The child remains in protective custody at Children’s Hospital in Madison, while, according to Becker, the parents are eating while in jail.

This Illuminati Conspiracy Theory Of Celebrities With Black Eyes Will Shock You..

Published

on

A bizarre conspiracy theory has emerged suggesting that celebrities seen sporting a black left eye are part of the Illuminati. Former US President George W. Bush, along with the Pope, Prince Philip and Prince Andrew, have all also been photographed with black eyes.

According to some conspiracy theorists, the black left eye is part of a cult or ‘Illuminati’ high-level initiation ritual during which the pledger is said to be forced to ‘eat pain’ in a quest to become more powerful.

Author and internet radio show host Sherry Shriner –  who wrote the book Interview With The Devil, in which she claimed to converse with Lucifer – has spoken of the link between these black eyes and ‘soul scalping’.

According to Shriner, government leaders, people on TV with their own shows and hundreds of popular entertainers have sold their souls to Satan.

‘You cannot be on TV now, without signing on the dotted line. The bizarre recurrence of facial bruises on Illuminati politicians and entertainers has resulted in speculation that their souls have been replaced in a satanic ritual called “soul scalping”,’ she said.

Shriner, who died earlier this year, believed all the powerful people in the world have been soul scalped.

She said that this can one done in a number of ritualistic ways, all of which result in a ‘possession’, whereby the human soul is removed and the body taken over by the demonic entity.

In conspiracy circles, this process is also known as a ‘walk-in’. Some people believe the blackened eye is a result of soul scalping.

Meanwhile, celebrities have come up with various explanations for how they got their black eyes over the years.

The Pope was said to have hit his eye when riding through the streets of Cartagena, Columbia in the ‘Pope-mobile’ last year.

Several news reports stated that he had made a joke about the injury, saying that he’d been punched.

Conspiracy theorists have pointed out that even members of the royal family have been spotted with black eyes over the years.

Some researchers suggest a link between the bearers of black eyes to the worship of the Egyptian sun god Horus, whose left eye was black and represented the moon and whose right eye was white and represented the sun.
