  • Mother of infant burned to death arrested

    07/26/2018 2:39:21 PM PDT · by BBell · 20 replies ^ | 7/25/18 | Vickie Welborn
    A day after the state fire marshal said more arrests are coming in the gruesome burning death of a Natchitoches infant, another arrest has been made. Not surprising to many, that person is the baby's mother. In separate but simultaneous news release, the Natchitoches Police Department and State Fire Marshal's Office announced the arrest of Hanna Barker, 22, of Natchitoches on one count of principal to first-degree murder in the death of her 6-month-old son, Levi Cole Ellerbe. “When you’re charged with a principal to a crime that means you had a part in the crime. You may or may...

    White Double of the Second Class UNITING THE BLOOD OF KINGS with that of pontiffs, the glory of Anne’s illustrious origin is far surpassed by that of her offspring, without compare among the daughters of Eve. The noblest of all, who have ever conceived by virtue of the command to “increase and multiply,” beholds the law of human generation pause before her as having arrived at its summit, at the threshold of God; for from her fruit God himself is come forth, the fatherless Son of the Blessed Virgin, and the grandson of Anne and Joachim. Before being favored...

    NORTH RIDGEVILLE, Ohio - Visitors to the Sandy Ridge Reservation on Sunday witnessed a traumatic nature event when a non-resident bald eagle attacked the eagles nesting there. As birders and trail walkers watched in horror, the invading eagle repeatedly thrashed at the nesting female with its sharp beak and talons, eventually driving it away. The gravely wounded female was later found on a roadside in North Ridgeville and taken to the rehabilitation clinic at the Lake Erie Nature and Science Center, where it died, said Senior Park Naturalist Tim Fairweather.But the invading eagle wasn't finished with its assault.

    Wednesday was my Mom’s 92 birthday. The past two weeks she has been very sick. I took her to the hospital on the 5th, as she didn’t feel well. They said that there was really nothing they could do for her. She was transferred to the Hospice House on Wednesday. Things would get better than worse. I sat with her all night for her birthday. At 7am Thursday she took her last breath. I want to thank everyone here for their support. Ed
  • Woman Holds Her 6-Month-Old Baby as She Testifies Against Bill Banning Late-Term Abortions

    Missouri lawmakers listened Tuesday as a woman held her infant son and told them not to ban late-term abortions. She was one of several abortion activists and pro-life advocates who testified about a bill to ban abortions after 20 weeks during a Missouri House hearing, the Columbia Missourian reports. The legislation, state House Bill 1266, sponsored by state Rep. Donna Lichtenegger, R-Jackson, would prohibit abortions after 20 weeks when unborn babies are capable of feeling intense pain. “If a nervous system is fully functional, it feels pain, so that’s why we are wanting to not have an abortion after 20...

In her first interview since the release of the Tonya Harding biopic I, Tonya, the real figure skating champion's mother LaVona "Sandy" Golden disputes her daughter's — and the film's — depiction that she was violent and abusive with her children.

    A 29-year-old Saudi man was in for the shock of his life when his wife, whom he loved so much, approached the court for a divorce. The estranged husband did not know why his wife would want divorce from him even though he did everything possible for her, but she was adamant in her demand. She admitted that her husband had never denied anything to her but she insisted on leaving him because he preferred her over his own mother. "I can never trust a man who does everything for his wife while he denies even a small favor to...

  • Court Orders Taiwanese Dentist to Pay Mother $1 Million for Raising Him

    01/03/2018 12:41:33 PM PST · by nickcarraway · 17 replies
    Taiwan's top court has ordered a dentist to pay his mother around Tw$22.33 million (S$1 million) as reimbursement for the money she spent raising and educating him. The supreme court Tuesday upheld a previous ruling that the 41-year-old, identified by his family name Chu, should honour a contract he signed with his mother 20 years ago promising to refund her. The plaintiff, surnamed Lo, divorced her husband in 1990 and raised their two sons on her own. Worried that nobody would look after her when she got old, Lo signed the contracts with her sons after they both turned 20,...

    It's time to look back on 2017 and see what happened at the multiplex. And for some titles it wasn't pretty. Though 2017 found some success stories — like the early-year releases "Get Out" and "Split" from Blumhouse, the fall favorite "It," and presumably "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" when it comes out in mid-December — numerous titles were dead on arrival. For every "Beauty and the Beast" and "Wonder Woman" in 2017, there was a dud like "CHiPs" and "mother!" that quickly followed. Here are the 10 worst box-office earners of the year (compare them to our list from...

The victim's two children were still near the car in the carport, and police said her oldest child warned her of the man approaching. Police said she struggled with the man to close the door on him. It didn't work so...

    The reflective Mary Eberstadt has the latest Weekly Standard cover story, asserting that the late rise of identity politics especially among the young descends from the decline in family, despite myriad other theories. An excerpt: Maybe that cultural scream of ‘mine!’ is issuing from souls who did have something taken from them—only something more elemental than the totemic objects now functioning as figurative blankies for lost and angry former children. As of today, less than 65 percent of American children live with both biological parents, even as other familial boughs have broken via external forces like the opioid crisis, criminality...

    RALEIGH, N.C. -- A North Carolina teenager accused of decapitating his mother is psychotic and won't be prosecuted on a murder charge, his attorney said Wednesday. A judge ordered 19-year-old Oliver Funes Machada involuntarily committed to a state psychiatric hospital after a series of mental health evaluations, including those by state experts, defense attorney Boyd Sturges said. Machada was ruled incompetent to proceed with his case. "This is consistent with what our position is," Sturges said. "We feel that Mr. Machada is very, very seriously deranged. And clearly he's psychotic, and we think the state's correct."   Sturges said the...

    Note: If you plan on seeing the movie (heaven forbid), please note that there are SPOILERS in the following story Modern art has come to a bizarre stage: anything, literally anything, can be justified for the sake of it. When a film, that reviewers claim is based on biblical allegory, showcases graphic cannibalism and torture porn, you can bet the liberal media will cheer. Mother!, a film starring Jennifer Lawrence (yes, that one, the one that said Mother Nature’s rage was coming for Trump), is outraging normal audiences everywhere, and even triggering the feminists, with its gore and bizarre references...

    Aronofsky and Paramount's mother! is coming in behind expectations after becoming one of a dozen or so films to ever get slapped with an F CinemaScore from audiences. The prestige title grossed an estimated $3 million from 2,368 theaters on Friday for a projected $8 million debut (mother! had been tracking to open in the low teens). Also featuring Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer, mother! made its world premiere earlier this month at the Venice Film Festival before screening at the Toronto International Film Festival to generally strong reviews, even if it has divided some critics.

    Not much is known about the new film "Mother!" Director Darren Aronofsky has remained silent about many of the details, but he has released a disturbing poem which twists the Lord's Prayer. "Our mother who art underfoot, hallowed be thy names, thy seasons come, thy will be done, within us as around us, thank you for our daily bread, our water, our air, and our lives and so much beauty; lead us not into selfish craving and the destructions that are the hungers of the glutted, but deliver us from wonton consumption of thy vast but finite bounty, for thine...

    Although the entertainment media will never admit it, will do everything in its sycophantic power to write all around it (see: Line, Dead), the chickens have finally come home to roost for Jennifer Lawrence’s hateful mouth. The once-bright superstar who could open even a poorly reviewed piece of low-budget horror-junk like House at the End of the Street to $12.2 million, has just hit a devastating career low (for a wide release), a humiliating $8 million opening for her latest, the critically-lauded, psychological horror-thriller Mother! This is a catastrophe for Lawrence, one of Hollywood’s most stridently bigoted (former) stars. The...
