    Is anyone watching Scandalous? Third episode was on Sunday night. I swear that is Rod Rosenstein in a couple of the pictures showing members of the Starr Investigation team!

    I think most people are aware that John McCain will not be a participating member of the Senate anymore. He is likely in Arizona to stay, as his disease is terminal. Why won’t this man help his own legacy by being a responsible person and resign the Senate, so that the Governor of Arizona can appoint another Republican who will vote to implement the Republican Agenda?

    Too many elected Republicans are too intimidated by the insults from Democrats. MOST ‘Dreamers’ don’t even speak English! Many haven’t shown the slightest interest in assimilating! Whatever are you thinking??? Amnesty for all??

    I just turned on my IPhone and an update started. It finished and asked for my iCloud info. I didn’t put anything in and now I cannot do anything with my IPhone as a page that says ‘pay Apple $28, just go to the apps’ is the only thing that comes up.

    Did anyone see Jeopardy yesterday? The 3rd appearance of ‘Manny’, a Navy guy, ended with him winning the game with only a dollar. He had only $2,000 going into the final (it had been a rough game for him, he had done much better his first two games). The two challengers were tied with $12,400 each. The final question was really difficult and no one got the right answer. The first answer revealed was Manny’s wrong answer, and he lost $1,999 of his money, leaving him with a dollar. The two challengers bet all their money and lost it all,...
  • Vivienne Westwood, Spring 2018 Menswear

    Who hasn’t seen Naomi Campbell’s famous runway fall? That was on Vivienne Westwood’s runway in Paris back in 1993. Today in London it happened again, albeit to a very different model. One of the acrobats that Westwood and Andreas Kronthaler recruited for this highly entertaining show had just finished a mighty Cossack squat when his 8-inch-ish platform slipped out from under him. He crashed to the floor, crushed the full-hemmed skirt of his off-the-shoulder black taffeta gown . . . but sprung back up onto his platforms undaunted. We applauded in relief. And that was only the second most heart-in-mouth...
  • Dreamers Not Accountable for Their Parent's Behavior, Yet Conservative Children Are

    The bullying of Conservatives has become trendy, with Big Media leading the charge. The Democrats in Dem 'leadership' are disgusting with their support of the Leftist groups that cause violence and bodily injury and encourage the support of 'youths' to join in on Social Media.

  • It’s too late for my son, but the end of the campaign for ‘normal birth’ is welcome

    The decision by the Royal College of Midwives to withdraw its decade-long campaign for “normal birth” has come much too late for my own son, Joshua, who sadly died nine days after being born, but is a welcome step. The approach for too long influenced a style of care in maternity wards that put lives at risk. These were the words spoken by Cumbria coroner Ian Smith, as he began summing up the inquest into the death of Joshua, on 6 June 2011: “With advances in medical science and techniques, childbirth has become safer and safer, to the point where...
  • Campaign to save World War II stretchers today serving the capital as railings

    UKTelegraph online ^ | 8/15/17 | Steve Bird
    On numerous housing estates throughout London, the rows of black steel and mesh railings guarding red brick mansion blocks appear, at first glance, little more than a quirk of post-war architectural design. However, unbeknown to thousands of passersby each day, those sometimes rusting or buckled fences were in fact the emergency stretchers that helped to save the lives of those injured during the Blitz. Now, a campaign has been launched to protect and restore these metal fences, mainly found on estates in South London, that had served so well as stretchers during World War II. Rosie Shaw, founder of the...

    <p>Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema says she is "seriously considering" a run for the Arizona Senate seat occupied by Republican Jeff Flake.</p> <p>The three-term Democrat says she's heard from many in her state encouraging her to run. Flake narrowly won in 2012 and is among the very few GOP incumbents who might be vulnerable next year in a Senate map that favors Republicans.</p>

    IIRC, Obama was asked at a Townhall in 2008, whether a woman's 98 year old mother would be allowed to have a pacemaker inserted, after his health care plan was implemented. The woman said her mother still had a joi d'vivre and did not want to die. Didn't Obama reply 'well, maybe sometimes you should just take a pain pill'?

    Sorry for the vanity. But I am fed up with people complaining about Trump and his tweets and Leftists saying Obama endured bad treatment with 'class'. Obama was handled with kid gloves. No Media comment when he 'scratched his nose or cheek' with his middle finger. No Media outrage when he said 'they bring a knife, we bring a gun'.

  • Man who ran into hospital to get help for dying cyclist told to 'call 999' instead

    A cyclist died after a good Samaritan rushed into a hospital to get help and was told to call 999 because there were no doctors. Marc Banting witnessed Nick Wilsdon, 44, lose control of his bicycle and swerve sideways into a van outside Bristol Royal Infirmary (BRI) and rushed into the hospital to ask for help. But Mr Banting claims he was told to phone 999 as the hospital could not spare any doctors. Mr Wilsdon, a musician and therapist who was described as a "wonderful, talented, much-loved man" by his family, died of his injuries a few days later....

    1835 — DRAMA IN STOKE NEWINGTON There has been a surreal, dramatic episode at a school-turned-polling station in Stoke Newington, London, according to Guido Fawkes reporter Ross Kempsell. Kempsell reported on Twitter that the school had posters up in the windows apparently drawn by children, emblazoned with slogans like "We want change fund schools!" and "More books and libraries." Another message, seemingly writen by school staff, urged voters to "Vote with your heart, not by what the papers tell you!" Police were on-site, but the site manager apparently refused to take the posters down, threatening to close the entire polling...

    Did Russia hack the DNC like Hillary and Podesta claim? If that is the case, why isn't that part of the Russia investigation? And why ever would the FBI allow an outside group to inspect the hard drives instead of doing the investigation themselves?

  • Hidden Figures review: a space-race segregation drama full of star pow

    Not since Sister Act has a film fronted by black women had quite the commercial impact of Hidden Figures, which has crashed through the $100 million barrier at the US box office and even scored a place on the Best Picture line-up. Underrate the star power of Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe at your peril; by the end of their film, you’ll certainly be doffing your hat to the women they’re playing, too. Hidden in the sense of historically obscured – their contributions to the space race neglected and marginalised – this trio of Nasa employees had...
