    Another mother recently won a huge lawsuit after arguing that she would have aborted her unborn son if she had known he had special needs before birth. A British judge awarded Omodele Meadows £9 million (about $12 million) for the “wrongful birth” of her son, Adejuwon, who has autism and a severe form of hemophilia, the Metro reports. Meadows argued that she loves her son, but she would have had him aborted if her doctors had done their jobs and informed her that she carried a hemophilia gene that could be passed on to her children. Adejuwon was born in...

    Ireland’s most prominent exorcist has accused the church of abandoning its flock by failing to train priests in the religious practice of demon hunting. In a special RTE Would You Believe documentary about evil, Fr Pat Collins, who is also a trained psychologist, claims he has experience in dealing with demonic spirits. “The Church is rightfully admitting its sinfulness in child sex abuse, that we did not defend children. Now it has all the safeguarding measures and that’s excellent," he said. “But it appals me that we have no safeguarding from the evil spirits. “I say that in the sense...

    While President Donald Trump has voiced frustration with Congress in passing legislation that grabs headlines, like tax reform or changes to Obamacare, there's one arena that the president has emerged victorious — more so than any president in 45 years. Trump's success in appointments to the federal judiciary will have a longer-lasting impact, and, as far as obstruction by Democrats, "there's nothing they can do about it," CNBC reported Friday. "This Thanksgiving weekend the most grateful person in America should be President Trump. An unlikely set of benefactors has truly given him the political gift that will keep on giving,"...

    (The following is an open letter to the voters of Alabama from Bill Staehle of Asbury Park, New Jersey.) I served with Roy Moore in Vietnam in 1971-72, where I knew him to be an altogether honorable, decent, respectable, and patriotic commander and soldier. I have had no contact with him since. He and I were captains and company commanders in the 504th Military Police Battalion, stationed at the base camp called Camp Land, just west of Danang. I knew him well in my first four months in-country before I was re-assigned within the battalion to another location. During that...
  • Congressman Claims Constitutional Immunity [semi-satire]

    Arnold Reed, attorney for Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich), asserted a claim of "constitutional immunity" in a bid to shield the congressman from charges that he wrongfully spent $27,000 in public monies to purchase the silence of a woman he is alleged to have sexually harassed. "My client is no ordinary person," Reed said. "He is a member of Congress. As such, he is entitled to privileges granted to such members by the Constitution. Among these privileges is immunity from arrest for any crimes save treason, felony, and breach of the peace. Even if true, the allegations made against him do...

    BERLIN — Workers at a half dozen Amazon (AMZN) distribution centers in Germany and one in Italy walked off the job Friday, in a protest timed to coincide with "Black Friday" to demand better wages from the American online giant. In Germany, union spokesman Thomas Voss said some 2,500 workers were on strike at Amazon facilities in Bad Hersfeld, Leipzig, Rheinberg, Werne, Graben and Koblenz. In northern Italy, in a warehouse near Piacenza, some workers walked off the job to demand "dignified salaries." The German union has been leading a push since 2013 for higher pay for some 12,000 workers...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | November 23, 2017 | Stephen Moore
    Congress is still scrambling to find ways to pay for its tax cut, so perhaps it should pay closer attention to last month’s news that George Soros had transferred $18 billion of his fortune to a private charity that he controls. There it will be sheltered from the Internal Revenue Service forever. This may be the single biggest tax dodge in U.S. history, yet no one on the right or left seems to have raised an eyebrow. True tax reform is predicated on the principle that all income should be taxed at a low rate once, and only once. But...

Israel, Esq., in which he stars as an idealistic defense attorney whose life is upended when his partner, the firm's front man, dies.

    Sometimes, in the process of covering so many things and in the attempt to provide as much information and commentary as possible, we simply are not able to provide all that we wish to do so to the public. However, that does not mean other stories and commentary are not important.  In fact, many things coming out of alternatives media today are vitally important for those coming off the government-controlled media. One of those items that didn't hit the mainstream media, and sadly didn't hit much of the alternative media, was the opening statement of Cliven Bundy's son, Ryan, as...

    A “crucified cow” has been erected as “art” at the center of a consecrated Catholic church in the Belgian town of Borgloon. Local Catholics are urging the local bishop to have it removed and offer public prayers of reparation, but so far it has remained in place.The “art” exhibit by Tom Herck is to be displayed until early December in the small parish church of Saint John the Baptist.The “artist” went through the grueling process of actually nailing the 500 kg corpse of a cow to a cross before covering it with silicone paint. The cow on the cross,...

    Ivanka Trump condemned recent media coverage of Malia Obama's social life at Harvard, where Obama is a freshman. The former first daughter Chelsea Clinton also called the coverage unethical "clickbait."

    Days ahead of what should be a major moment for Ivanka Trump on the world stage, CNN has learned Secretary of State Rex Tillerson isn't sending a high-level delegation to support her amid reports of tensions between Tillerson and the White House. Ivanka Trump is leading the US delegation this year. Trump was invited by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in June, and this year's theme is supporting women entrepreneurs. "They (Tillerson and his staff) won't send someone senior because they don't want to bolster Ivanka. It's now another rift between the White House and State at a time when...

    For 17 years, religious groups fed homeless people, and the city and private donors put up hundreds of thousands of dollars for social workers to find them housing and services. But Malibu United Methodist Church — facing pressure from the city — in recent weeks took a U-turn, deciding twice-weekly dinners for homeless people would stop after Thanksgiving. The cutoff came after city officials summoned organizers and suggested they were attracting more homeless people and making the problem worse. ...
