    The recent heatwave in the UK and Ireland has uncovered ancient archaeological sites that, in some cases, have never been seen before. One such discovery is a henge, or circular enclosure, located 1km from the famous Irish megalithic passage tomb, Newgrange. The henge was discovered by historian Anthony Murphy of Mythical Ireland, who was flying his drone over the Boyne Valley when he spotted a circular shape in the field. It is estimated that this henge was built some 5000 years ago. ... snip ... These new discoveries include a Roman fortlet near Magor, which emerged in ripening crops, and...
  • Trump and the queen: The Press ridicules Trump for "Lack of Etiquette"

    American Thinker ^ | 07/16/2018 | Russ McSwain
    It remains interesting that much of the ridicule aimed at Trump involves things that liberals do as well. Case in point from the Huffington Post: The royal family adheres to a strict code of etiquette and behavior. So when the ever-boisterous President Donald Trump met with Queen Elizabeth II for tea at Windsor Castle on Friday, many expected him to serve up some awkward interactions. Of course, Trump did not disappoint. My goodness – Trump was rude to the queen?  Our leaders should respect the customs and protocols of other nations just as we expect them to respect ours.  What on earth...

    The archive of Iranian nuclear documents seized by the Israeli Mossad from a Tehran warehouse in January shows that Irans program to build nuclear weapons was almost certainly larger, more sophisticated and better organized than was suspected, unnamed nuclear experts were quoted as saying in the New York Times on Sunday, after being shown selected documents from the haul by US reporters. One of the Iranian documents specifies plans to build a first batch of five weapons and discusses sites for possible underground nuclear tests, the Times reported, after one of its reporters was given limited access to the haul...

    Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Twitter this morning accused British diver Vern Unsworth of being a pedophile, after Unsworth criticized Musks proposal to use a small submarine to rescue a trapped soccer team in Thailand. Unsworth was instrumental in the rescue of the boys soccer team, but lambasted Musks submarine plan in an interview published by CNN Friday. Among other comments, Unsworth said the submarine wouldnt have made the first 50 meters into the cave and was just a PR stunt. Musk, responding to further criticism from professor and New York Times columnist Zeynep Tufekci, wrote this morning that he...

    Theresa Mays hopes of winning support for her Brexit compromise have been dealt a huge blow as Justine Greening has become the first senior Conservative to support calls for a second referendum. The prime ministers effort to keep Britain in parts of the single market is the worst of both worlds and will satisfy no one, the former education secretary says in an article for The Times.

    President Donald Trump's first official visit to the U.K. was marked by thousands of people demonstrating in the streets, first in London as Trump met with Queen Elizabeth and then in Scotland where he went to play a little golf. Handmade signs at the massive protest in central London last Friday took aim at Trump's immigration policies and his past comments about women, among plenty of other topics. Not everyone in the crowds came out to hate on Trump. Some were seen sporting his campaign slogan "Make America Great Again" on hats, according to the Associated Press. But the majority...

    THE heir to Blenheim Palace was reportedly told to 'upskirt Melania' as he live streamed President Trump's visit to his home. Aristocrat George Spencer-Churchill, 25, filmed the historic event on his phone and posted the clips online.

    LONDON Thousands of Trump supporters and right-wing activists took to the nations capital on Saturday a day after anti-Trump protesters had dominated the city. While the displays of right-wing support were nowhere near as large as the enormous anti-Trump march that demanded the international medias attention the day before, it was still a significant show of support for Trump from those eager to counter the claim that Trump had been unanimously rejected by Britons. The day started with a small pro-Trump rally outside the U.S. Embassy, featuring numerous red MAGA hats and U.S. and U.K. flags -- as...

    THE QUEEN was left to take on her royal duty alone when she met Donald Trump and wife Melania, with Prince Charles and Prince William refusing to join in the elaborate welcome. Senior members of the Royal Family, including the first and second in line to the throne, had informal discussions about the trip, and let it be known they did not want to take part in arrangements for the US Presidents four-day UK visit. Downing Street and Buckingham Palace both said as Trumps tour of the UK was not an official state visit, there was a singular plan to...

    Johnson, who led the main Brexit campaign in the 2016 referendum, resigned as foreign minister on Monday over Mays strategy which he said was killing the Brexit dream with self-doubt. Theresa May has got a lot of great qualities I am not sure if it is the right leader at the right time, Bannon, Trumps former strategist and a key player in his 2016 election campaign, was quoted by the Daily Telegraph as saying. Mays government was rattled by the departures of Johnson and her chief Brexit negotiator David Davis just days after she appeared to have gained the...

    The barrage of rockets into Israel from Gaza continued into the early morning hours of Sunday. It all began Friday night and Israel has responded with air strikes into Gaza aimed at targets of the Hamas terrorist organization that rules there. Four Israelis were injured in the attacks by some 200 plus rockets including three in a synagogue on the Sabbath. Two were killed in Gaza in the Israeli attacks in response. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says that if Hamas didn't get the message from Saturday's military response, they will get it on Sunday. The Israel Defense Forces have...

    Police in Sadiq Khans London have used the Public Order Act to prevent a rally in support of U.S. President Donald Trump outside the American embassy, despite permitting a large, ill-tempered anti-Trump rally on Friday. Protestors attending the Welcome Trump event had planned to gather outside the embassy and march from there to Whitehall, where they would have joined in with a separate Free Tommy Robinson event in support of the activist and independent journalist who was recently imprisoned for contempt of court after reporting on a grooming gang trial. But the Metropolitan Police Force, which answers to a large...

    Abortion destroys everything. It is even destroying the love story of commoner Meghan Markle marrying her prince and winning over a nation and frosty queen-in-law. Abortion not only destroys babies but also has the ability to destroy so much of society because its supporters view it as a sacred right. Abortion is a litmus test for leftists - if you dont support it you are not a good person and can be destroyed. Indeed it is so sacred that it must be promoted and protected at all costs even if that means destroying people and institutions along the way. And...

    President Trump and Prime Minister Theresa May held a joint press conference today in the UK. After brief statements, Trump and May spent about a half hour taking questions from a large group of assembled media. In the midst of an otherwise orderly press conference, CNN’s Jim Acosta demanded he be given a chance to ask a question. President Trump refused, calling CNN “fake news.”The way the Q & A worked was very orderly. “We’re going to take four questions each,” Prime Minister May said at the beginning. She then selected the first journalist from the crowd to ask...
