Charlie Gard’s Mom Shouts “What If It Was Your Child” After Judge Says Charlie Wil

Charlie Gard’s mother Connie Yates today left a courtroom in tears after the judge in the case said Charlie would have to die in a hospice if his parents and the London Hospital that has been refusing to treat him properly can’t come to an agreement over where he will be when his life support is removed.

Charlie’s parents have been fighting with the hospital over whether or not they can take him home so he can be surrounded by friends and family after he is removed from life support. However the hospital has refused to allow him to go home — saying that it doesn’t think his ventilator would be able to fit through the front door of his house.—More….

Exclusive — Ronna Romney McDaniel: Debbie Wasserman Schultz Must Testify Before Congress on IT

Ronna Romney McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), is calling on former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) to testify before Congress on her now-arrested, just-fired IT staffer.

McDaniel made the explosive demand in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News via phone on Wednesday afternoon, after news broke Tuesday night that Wasserman Schultz’s IT staffer for more than a decade was caught trying to flee the country by federal law enforcement agents after wiring hundreds of thousands of dollars to Pakistan.—More….

Hamas Ruled a Terrorist Organization by European Court of Justice

Radical Islamist movement Hamas has been officially declared a terrorist organization by the European Court of Justice (ECJ) after judges in the European Union’s most senior court ruled the group should remain on an EU-wide terror blacklist.

The EU originally imposed travel bans and asset freezes on the Gaza-based Palestinian terrorist group, after the September 11, 2001 Al-Qaeda terror attacks on New York and Washington.—More…

ADL slams Trump ban on trans soldiers as ‘blatantly discriminatory’

The Anti-Defamation League on Wednesday denounced the decision by US President Donald Trump to bar transgender people from serving in the military, calling the new policy “deeply objectionable and blatantly discriminatory.”

“It’s a sad day when the President of the United States declares that transgender Americans are unwelcome in the United States military,” said Jonathan A. Greenblatt, ADL CEO said in statement. “This policy is deeply objectionable – it devalues individual Americans and is blatantly discriminatory. We’ll fight against this unpatriotic ban of transgender troops. We cannot let bigotry stop Americans from serving their country.—More…

Enemies of humanity

After being infected again with malaria last July, I spent almost a month in a Kampala hospital. Paying for my treatment was extremely difficult, as it is for most Ugandan and African families. I was lucky I could scrape the money together. Many families cannot afford proper treatment.

Where and how can they get the money to go back to the hospital again and again, every time a family member gets malaria, when they also need food, clothes and so many other things—or malaria makes them so sick that they can’t work for weeks or even months? Many parents can do nothing except watch their loved ones die in agony, and then give them a simple burial.

Far too many people still die from malaria every year in Africa, the vast majority of them women and children. Too many more die from lung and intestinal diseases, because we don’t have electricity, natural gas, clean water, or decent modern homes, clinics and hospitals.

Hacked Emails Expose Hacks

The sore loser cry babies who refuse to accept the results of American voters will do anything to make the vote of the people for Donald Trump appear illegitimate.  Their lame attempts at frivolous recounts only exposed their own corruption and added votes to the Donald’s bottom line.  So it is time for a new approach.  Blame it on the Russians.

I remember back in the 1980s when we finally had a president with a plan to end the Cold War.  These same bleeding heart limousine liberals fell all over themselves opposing the Gipper.  They marched, they colluded with the enemy and they endlessly attacked him and his plan through their operatives masquerading as journalists in the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media.

Venezuelans Stockpile Food and Water Ahead of Maduro Power Grab

Venezuelans are stockpiling scarce food and water as tensions mount ahead of a widely criticized Sunday vote that President Nicolas Maduro has called to elect an assembly of supporters to rewrite the constitution and strengthen his grip on power.

Maduro—who’s presided over an increasingly autocratic regime that has imperiled the country’s six-decade democracy and left the economy and society in shambles—is showing few signs of backing down despite growing pressure. He’s broadcast a deluge of propaganda supporting the assembly even as outraged opposition leaders called a general strike Wednesday to forestall it. And opposition is international: The Trump administration sanctioned 13 senior Venezuela officials Wednesday, including the interior minister and the national oil company’s vice president for finance. The head of the Organization of American States has called for elections and Spain’s former prime minister is trying to broker a deal.—More…

The New York Times issues a threat to America’s Boy Scouts

On Monday night, President Trump delivered a funny, idiosyncratic, and inspirational speech in classic New Yorker-ese to Boy Scouts gathered at the organization’s National Jamboree.

Trump praised the Boy Scouts’ history, told anecdotes about personal success, and dropped a few political jabs at his opponents. Then the tens of thousands of Boy Scouts attending the rally went back to weaving lanyards and making delicious stews by mixing all the different flavors of Campbell’s soup in a single pot, or whatever it is that Boy Scouts do at jamborees. (A transcript of the speech is available at Time.)

But by Tuesday morning, the froth-mouthed media had seized on Trump’s speech and was working overtime to blow it up into a Hurricane Katrina-level crisis. Boy Scouts who cheered for Trump were Hitler Youth, Newsweekreported. Well, no, the media outlet didn’t quite say that: it reported other people saying it, which is Newsweek leadership’s exceedingly sleazy way of saying something they want to say without having the integrity to just come out and say it themselves.

Here is Newsweek’s headline  accusing the Boy Scouts of staging a massive Nazi youth rally in West Virginia:

Resurrecting an Essential Right

The US Supreme Court has agreed to hear the case of the Colorado baker who was forced, in violation of his Christian beliefs, to bake a wedding cake for a homosexual couple. The baker will argue that the state’s public accommodations law violates his freedom of religion and his right to “free expression.” The State of Colorado will argue that the baker’s refusal to accommodate the couple because of their homosexuality constitutes a violation of the couples’ rights.

If someone went about hitting people over the head for religious reasons, he would certainly be violating their rights. But anything less than the use of physical force infringes no one’s rights. A baker’s refusal to make a wedding cake for a couple, whatever his reason, is no more a violation of their rights than if he refused to attend their wedding.

Senator Kid Rock—For Real

You can knock me down and watch me bleed
But you can’t keep no chains on me

—Kid Rock (Robert Ritchie) “Born Free

“I concede she [Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI)] is better at playing politics than I am so I’ll keep doing what I do best, which is being a voice for tax paying hardworking AMERICANS and letting politicians like her know that We the People are sick and tired of their bullshit!”—Kid Rock quoted by Phillip Stucky “Kid Rock Leads Democrat In New Poll

Dems Try The Islamophobe Card In Defense of Wasserman Schultz’s Arrested IT Guy

Crafty Democrats blame “massive Federal Islamophobia”  for Rep. Debbie (aka ‘Blabbermouth”)  Wasserman Schultz’s , top IT Guy Imran Awan, who spread like a plague among her Democrat colleagues in the House,  being outed by the FBI.

Massive Federal Islamophobia”?

Try massive ‘Liarophobia’, Ms. Blabbermouth because that’s what millions of deplorables really deplore most; elected politicians who lie like the proverbial rug to the masses they are so handsomely paid to represent.

Trump: Boy or girl . . . you can join the military; all others need not apply

Alternate headline: Media upset as president makes substantive policy decision to distract from what they prefer to talk about.

This is a reversal of a 2016 Obama decision, the implementation of which had already been delayed six months at the request of Secretary of Defense James Mattis. It’s official now: Those of the “transgender” persuasion will not be permitted to join the military. And as has become standard with this presidency, it’s made official via Twitter:

WHY IS HEALTH CARE SO EXPENSIVE?

That’s a legitimate question and one that surely requires an answer.

When I was born, many moons ago, I believe the average life expectancy of an American citizen was in the upper 60’s.  Today the average life span is about 78 for men and approximately 80 for women. That’s quite a jump, don’t you think?

Well, let’s take the year 1960 (57 years ago).  Doctors at that time still made house calls for approx. $15.00 per house visit ($10 a visit at the doctor’s office).  Many of the cures that my mother used for some of the illnesses was homeopathic (without really knowing what that word meant) and natural treatments that were handed down from generation to generation.

Gowdy: Trump/Sessions fight ‘heartbreaking’ - ‘If I was the Attorney General I would not stay’

Yesterday, I argued that President Trump had botched the Jeff Sessions situation. One of the main things behind that opinion is the fact that attacking Sessions - rather than simply firing him - would make important congressional allies wonder just what the heck was going on inside the administration. Dan Calabrese made a similar point this morning. If you fire someone for a solid reason, people will accept it.  If you decide to torture them in the media, your ‘friends’ will always be wondering when their turn is coming.

Most of you agreed.  Some of you, though, said Trump was going to war with…well…everyone.

While I share your desire to see the swamp drained, I’m also aware that it’s incredibly difficult to run a presidency sans political partners.  There are people in Congress that Trump needs to keep on his side. ...And it sounds like the Sessions kerfuffle is making them question the President’s leadership.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz IT staffer arrested while trying to flee the country

It’s like something out of a movie.  The conspiratorial IT guy, a staffer for a crooked - and disgraced - former DNC chair, has put his escape plan into motion.  His affairs are in order, money has been wired overseas, his wife has already escaped to a third-world hellhole. Now, all he has to do is get through the airport.  Once he’s on the plane and the seatbelt light goes “ding,” he’s home free.

Then the feds show up and haul him away.

Trump rips Sessions again in WSJ interview, citing recusal and weakness on leak investigations

Maybe this has always been Donald Trump’s management style, but before he was president we had no reason to be all that aware of it. Maybe in his business empire, when he was unhappy with an underling, he made it known by telling anyone and everyone else who would listen until the humiliated underling got the message and got in line.

I don’t know. Trump figures that what worked for him in business will work for him as president, and the insistence of the political class to the contrary did not prove correct during the election campaign.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions: Coming or Going?

Ever since his confirmation as United States Attorney General, I have taunted wayward politicians and sanctuary cities in California: “Jeff Sessions is coming!” Some of my opponents have retorted that Sessions is about to be fired. I say “He’s on fire.”

But with the latest twitter and interview storm from President Trump, I am not sure what to think.

Is it time for Sessions to go?
