  • God Save Queen: The new film Bohemian Rhapsody captures the spirit of the legendary ’70s band

    Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Also: Will you do the fandango? Can anybody find me someone to love? And: Who wants to live forever? Running through these pertinent questions with Professor Freddie Mercury at Queen College makes for a largely joyous two hours at Bohemian Rhapsody, a movie that lacks much in the way of imaginative filmmaking but has a subject I find irresistible. A movie that consisted of nothing but making-of stories about the dozen or so best Queen songs, and playing them over a theater sound system, would best nearly everything actually offered at...
  • They’ve watered down feral Freddie Mercury - the reckless hedonist - into a cup of milky [tr]

    Clearly it’s been no bed of roses. No pleasure cruise. However, after eight years of delays, several different directors, strops, rows and – uh oh! – artistic differences, Bohemian Rhapsody finally staggered out of the shadows and on to the silver screen last night. And was this biopic of rock band Queen worth the wait? Not quite. Not really. Not unless you prefer a watered-down, milky tea version of the great Freddie Mercury; here portrayed as a mild-mannered occasional bisexual who was happiest with his cats and his soft furnishings. It is no secret that in real life, Mercury was...

    Music legend Aretha Franklin died without a will. Franklin, who suffered from pancreatic cancer and was in grave health in the days leading up to her death last week, had no financial preparations in place at the time of her death, the website reports. The gossip outlet notes that the “Respect” singer had a son, Clarence, who has special needs and will require financial support for the rest of his life. Following the news of her death, the Franklin family said: “In one of the darkest moments of our lives, we are not able to find the appropriate words to...

    FULL TITLE: Don't mess with the Queen's guard! The moment a guardsman violently shoves a female tourist out of his way after she stepped over a rope into his path outside Windsor Castle This is the moment a shocked tourist was pushed out of the way by a member of the Queen's Guard at Windsor Castle. The women, who had crossed a rope barrier, screamed in shock as she was shoved from behind by the soldier, who was wearing his ceremonial bearskin hat. The tourist was not injured and managed to remain on her feet despite the incident which took...

    I get emails from Trump haters constantly. They tell me that our President is just the flip side of the same globalist coin we would have gotten with Hillary Clinton. But I don't buy it. And I wonder, is it not even acceptable to highlight and report about the good things President Trump has done? We have been lied to and betrayed for so long that I wonder, are many Americans suffering from some hybrid version of Stockholm syndrome? I take my case to the President himself.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5vg0URPAW2c

    Funny how the British and liberals in general are concerned about Trump's "breach of protocol" and show little or no respect to the President of the United States nor to his aides. The protests in restaurants and at the homes of aides needs to be brought to an abrupt halt. The whole world knows that the disrespectful treatment of the President and his aides has been wrong. Strzok and his ilk know they're wrong and must be punished for direct attempts to overthrow rightful election results and must be put in prison. ALL of this poor behavior needs to be...

    On Friday Trump and first lady Melania will have tea with the Queen in one of her drawing rooms before leaving for Scotland. US President Trump described Queen Elizabeth II as a "tremendous woman" in an interview with The Sun newspaper, hours before he and first lady Melania Trump are due to meet the monarch for tea on Friday. "She is a tremendous woman," Trump told the newspaper during his UK working visit. "I really look forward to meeting her. I think she represents her country so well." The US President also praised the Queen's ability to avoid controversy during...

    White Semidouble IN THE FOOTSTEPS of Margaret of Scotland and of Clotilde of France, a third Queen comes to shed her brightness on the sacred cycle. Born at the southern extremity of Christendom, where it borders of Musselman lands, she was destined by the Holy Ghost to seal with peace the victories of Christ, and prepare the way for fresh conquests. The blessed name of Elizabeth, which for half a century had been rejoicing the world with its sweet perfume, was given to her, foretelling that this newborn child, as though attracted by the roses which fell from the...

    Business Insider ^ | June 2018 | Rob Price
    Since ascending to the throne in 1952, the monarch has seen 13 prime ministers serve Britain and lived through another 13 US presidents. She's now 92. At some point — not for many years yet, we hope — Queen Elizabeth II's reign will come to an end. But what happens then? For at least 12 days — between her passing, the funeral and beyond — Britain will grind to a halt. The stock markets and banks are likely to close. But to focus on the financial disruption doesn't begin to describe the sheer magnitude of the queen's death. It will...

    It is inevitable that I should seem a rather remote figure to many of you. A successor to the Kings and Queens of history; someone whose face may be familiar in newspapers and films but who never really touches your personal lives. But now at least for a few minutes I welcome you to the peace of my own home. That it is possible for some of you to see me today is just another example of the speed at which things are changing all around us. Because of these changes I am not surprised that many people feel lost...

    American Thinker.com ^ | November 24, 2017 | Michael Curtis
    All or nothing at all -- three-quarters of a country never appealed to him, nor did the idea of a political entity called Northern Ireland that was created in 1920, comprising the six northeastern counties of Ireland in the province of Ulster. Gerry Adams is still adamant about the need for a united Ireland. As a political entity, the Republic of Ireland, first called the Irish Free State, was created in 1922. On November 18, 2017 the 69-year-old Adams, president since 1983 of Sinn Fein, the left-wing political party, announced that it was time for a change and that he...

    Sky News ^ | 22 June 2018
    Donald Trump will meet the Queen when he visits Britain next month, the US ambassador to the UK has told Sky News. The president is due in Britain for a working visit on Friday 13 July - his first to the country since being elected in 2016. It is not a state visit with all the pomp and ceremony that comes with that, so the pair would not necessarily need to meet. But ambassador Robert Wood Johnson said that while plans have not yet been finalised, they will involve the president meeting Her Majesty. "Meeting Her Majesty is the most...

    White Semidouble ONE WEEK HAS ELAPSED since the day on which we beheld Clotilde arise, and from yonder land of France won over to Christ by her, make known to the whole world, what is the special role of woman beside the cradle of a nation. Until Christianity came, man altogether lowered in his own person and in the social order, by the consequences of sin, was wholly ignorant of the grandeur of the divine intention, in this respect; philosophy and history never dreamed it possible that maternity could be raised to such heights. But since the Holy Ghost...

    White   AT THIS SEASON, in which the Office of the Time is leading us to consider the early developments of Holy Church, Eternal Wisdom so arranges, now as ever, that the Feasts of the Saints should complete the teachings of the movable Cycle. The Paraclete, who has but just down upon us, is to fill the whole earth; the Man-God has sent Him expressly to win over the whole earth and to secure all time, to His Church. Now, it is by subjecting kingdoms to the faith, that He is to form Christ’s Empire; it is by working...

    “QUEEN ELIZABETH must claim her right to rule Muslims.” So ran a recent headline on the Arab Atheist Network, a web forum. It was only partly in jest. According to reports from Casablanca to Karachi, the British monarch is descended from the Prophet Muhammad, making her a cousin of the kings of Morocco and Jordan, not to mention of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s Supreme Leader.

    Russia claims Queen 'downs cocktails all day' and Theresa May 'has a brandy habit' A Russian senator said the Queen loves wine and gin-based cocktails. Russia has slammed the Queen for downing gin, wine and champagne every day in a 'fake news' propaganda blast against the UK. Senator Aleksey Pushkov, an ally of President Vladimir Putin , said the monarch treats drinking like a "ceremony" while Prime Minster Theresa May has a brandy habit. The politician claimed tell-tale mannerisms reveal the pair as 'unpleasant' heavy drinkers. According to the Sun, Pushkov told Staterun TV: "Before dinner she [Her Majesty] drinks...

    PARIS — Slovenian-born Melania Trump has been unafraid to go against her husband's "America First" agenda and stay true to her roots, if there's a message to be taken from her bold, foreign-flavored wardrobe in 2017. In her first year as first lady, Mrs. Trump has often wrapped herself in the clothes of her home continent as several American designers publicly refused to dress her in what was a fashion industry-wide backlash against her unpopular spouse. The first first lady to be born in continental Europe, Trump grew up in Sevnica in Slovenia, in the southern Balkans, just over 100...

    Pop star Taylor Swift apparently struck a nerve with leftists and Internet trolls this week after she said she “couldn’t have asked for a better year” in 2017 and thanked her fans in a birthday Instagram post. “I love you guys so much,” Swift captioned a photo taken at a recent London concert. “I couldn’t have asked for a better year, all thanks to you. Thanks for all the birthday wishes. Can’t wait to see what 28 will be like. See you on tour.” That simple message was apparently too much for some Twitter users — and at least a...

    When we think of winter outfits, we think of sweatpants, UGGs and a big fluffy hat to match. Melania proves otherwise. After spending their Christmas and New Years at the Trump Mar-a-Logo resort in Palm Beach, Florida, the Trump family made their way back to the White House. Even the frigid, winter temperatures of Washington DC (at 20 degrees, ahem) caught up with Melania Trump, who was spotted deplaning Air Force One in a cozy -- and of course, chic -- winter outfit. The first lady took airplane travel to the next level in a tan breasted peacoat, turtleneck and...
