Little Alfie Evans is dead – British government killed him

“I am deeply moved by the death of little Alfie. Today I pray especially for his parents, as God the Father receives him in His tender embrace.” – Pope Francis

British authorities have absolutely ensured that 23-month-old Alfie Evan of Liverpool is dead.

Catching the world’s attention, the British courts ruled against his parents, Kate James, 20, and Tom Evans, 21, who required legal permission for their son to leave the UK to receive medical treatment at the Vatican’s dell’Ospedale Pediatrico Bambino Gesù (Baby Jesus Children’s Hospital), the same hospital visited by Melania Trump on a recent European visit by she and the president.

As reported by Dan Hitchens of the Catholic Herald (of London);

At the end of 2016, Alfie started having seizures, and since then he has been cared for by Alder Hey hospital. He is suffering from an undiagnosed brain condition. In a court judgment in February this year, Mr Justice Hayden referred to the opinions of doctors not only from Alder Hey, but also from two separate experts at Great Ormond Street, from two Munich hospitals, and from the senior clinical team at Bambino Gesù itself.

“All agreed,” Mr Justice Hayden wrote, that the “degeneration” of Alfie’s brain “is both catastrophic and untreatable”. Last Friday, the Supreme Court rejected Alfie’s parents’ appeal for further treatment, saying: “The unanimous opinion of the doctors who have examined him and the scans of his brain is that almost all of his brain has been destroyed.” No recovery is possible, according to the doctors.

Mr. Justice (Sir Anthony Paul) Hayden ruled that the decision had to be taken out of the parents’ hands – because of the risk that Alfie is in pain (though the judge agreed with the doctors that this was “unlikely”) and for the sake of Alfie’s “future dignity” and “autonomy”.

Alfie could have been one of those children at Bambino Gesù.

Alfie was taken off his ventilator and managed to survive for five days.

However, Alfie’s father, Tom, and his parents are Catholic, and in an audience with Pope Francis they have found an ally.

The pontiff gave the family not only his prayers and support, but also guaranteed Alfie a spot at the Vatican’s children’s hospital to treat his still undiagnosed illness.



As it turns out, not only did Pope Francis come to Alfie’s defense, so did the Italian Foreign Minister Angelino Alfano, Interior Minister Marco Minniti, former Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydło, and Polish President Andrzej Duda.

The governor of the Italian province of Veneto, Gov. Luca Zaia, said that in Alfie;

The “so-called civilized world has supplied the latest proof of enormous incivility.”

According to the Italian Catholic news portal ANSA, a bit of a stunning announcement came from Rome;

Italy on Monday gave Italian citizenship to terminally ill British toddler Alfie Evans so that he can hopefully be “immediately” moved to Italy from Liverpool, where doctors are set to pull the plug on him, the foreign ministry said. “Foreign Minister Angelino Alfano and Interior Minister Marco Minniti have granted citizenship to little Alfie,” the ministry said.

“In this way the Italian government hopes that being an Italian citizen will enable the immediate transfer of the child to Italy”.

Not only have the Italians conferred citizenship on Alfie, according to the AP, Italy “put a military plane on standby to transport him to Rome, if the courts allowed it.”

Also from the Catholic Herald;

The parents suggested a course of action: Alfie could be flown to Bambino Gesù in Rome, which was eager to care for the boy. The hospital’s president, Mariella Enoc, told Vatican News last week that the hospital cannot cure him – but they can keep him alive and carry on trying to identify his still-unknown illness. But Alder Hey argued that the end should be accepted – and the High Court, as well as the Court of Appeal, the Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights, took the same view.

In the end, Dan Hitchens, who is also the deputy editor of the Catholic Herald, noted;

For Alfie Evans, who was baptised and has not a stain on his soul, death can only be a prelude to eternal life with God. But what will most stay in the public’s mind is the witness of the Evans parents to an unyielding love put through an unimaginable ordeal.

No longer Arabs, Israeli-Christians have new official identity

As a people, the Encyclopædia Britannica says the Aramaeans essentially ceased to exist centuries ago. Yet best known in the West as the language spoken by Christ, the Aramaic language survives to this day in both isolated villages in the Middle East and in the liturgical language of Lebanon’s Maronite-Rite Catholics and Iraq’s Chaldean-Rite Catholics (there are well over 20 different Catholic “Rites” or Churches).

French president honors US Marines on 100th anniversary of saving France

Back in 1983 I was a young Drill Instructor Sgt. Whiteman, freshly minted product of DI School at Parris Island, SC, I can say with all honesty that one of the highlights of my Marine Corps career was seeing a visiting group of survivors of the Battle of Belleau Wood.

The youngest of the group was no younger than 80. You see, it was somewhat common back then for boys as young as 15 and 16 to join the Corps.

And every single one of these true American heroes I saw that day trained at the same sweltering, godforsaken, sand flea-infested sandbar that I now called my duty station. It was truly a humbling experience.

I kept in mind that 9,000 of my fellow Marines (and their buddies) never returned or if they did survive the battle, came home shot to pieces. Some blinded, some missing one or more limbs, some suffered the loss of their very minds. When it was finally over, there were 7,000 wounded Marines, almost 2,000 dead.

Averaging out at 346 dead or wounded Marines every singe day during the course of the battle, it took almost the entire month of June (1-26 June, 1918) for a singular Marine Brigade to stop the final Imperial German army’s offensive of The Great War.

Sadly, most Americans have no idea what their Marine Corps achieved a century ago in the Bois de Belleau (“Belleau Forest” or “Belleau Wood”). Namely, that relatively small Marine Brigade changed the course of world history.

To commemorate this year’s 100th anniversary of the American victory,  President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron, along with First Ladies Melania Trump and Brigitte Macron, planted on White House grounds an oak sapling that first sprouted in the hallowed battlefield.

As reported by Richard Sisk Military.com (despite its name, is civilian owned);

French President Emmanuel Macron said Sunday that he is bringing a living tribute to “Devil Dog” Marines who fell in the World War I battle of Belleau Wood to the White House this week as a symbol of the two nations’ enduring ties.

The battle of Bois de Belleau, or Belleau Wood, about 60 miles north of Paris near the Marne River in the Champagne region, has entered Marine Corps lore. It’s best known among Marines as the place where they were first called “Devil Dogs” for their fierce defense in June 1918 that blunted the German spring offensive.

A dispatch from the German front lines to higher headquarters described the Americans blocking their way and mounting counter-offensives as fighting like “Teufel Hunden,” or “Hounds of Hell.”

Once they consolidated their positions, the Marines would attack six times through mustard gas and withering machine-gun fire before the Germans were driven from the wood. An estimated 2,000 Marines were killed.

An official German report later described the Marines as “vigorous, self-confident, and remarkable marksmen.”

Army Gen. John J. “Black Jack” Pershing, commander of the American Expeditionary Force on the Western Front, marveled at the tenacity of the “Devil Dogs” of Belleau Wood in a quote that has also become part of the Marine legend.

“The deadliest weapon in the world is a United States Marine and his rifle,” Pershing said.

The oak sapling Macron will give to Trump was taken from a site near the so-called “Devil Dog Fountain,” where U.S. troops gathered after the battle of Belleau Wood. The fountain’s spout is in the shape of the head of a bull mastiff.

Devil Dog Fountain, Belleau, France – U.S. Marine Corps Gen. Glenn M. Walters, assistant commandant of the Marine Corps, drinks from Devil Dog Fountain, Belleau, France, May 28, 2017.

Prior to the battle itself, the German forces launched their final major offensive on the Western Front.

The Allied armies were all in full retreat, the road to Paris lay wide open. If the French capital fell, the war would have doubtlessly dragged on for years and uncounted thousands of more dead and wounded.

As a French unit in retreat urged the Marines to join them, Capt. Lloyd W. Williams of the 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines, responded with the now-famous;

“Retreat? Hell, we just got here.”

As they say, the rest is history.

Just days after the battle, the French Army renamed re-named Bois de Belleau to be known forever on all French maps as the Bois de la Brigade de Marine (Forest of the Marine Brigade).

“Come on, you sons of bitches, do you want to live forever?” – 1st Sgt Dan Daly urging his Marines forward during a bayonet attack on the entrenched Germans.

Ex-Trump adviser ‘uninvited’ to speaking event after slamming Barbara Bush

Love him, hate him, or totally indifferent concerning him, former adviser to President Trump, Roger Stone is in some deep kimchee.

Initially invited to speak before the Okaloosa (Florida) Republican Executive Committee, Stone has found himself “uninvited” by the same GOP group as reported by USA Today.

While appearing in an interview with the conspiracy-friendly Alex Jones, Stone shared some less-than-complimentary opinions in regards to the late Barbara Bush;

“I understand I’m going to take a lot of crap for speaking the truth about Barbara Bush,” Stone said in an interview with InfoWars host Alex Jones. “She was a mean-spirited, vindictive drunk. She is ascending into hell right now. She’s not going to heaven. She was a bad person.”

Stone also reportedly wrote on Instagram that “Barbara Bush drank so much booze, if they cremated her … her body would burn for three days.”

Stone was slated to be the keynote speaker for the group’s Lincoln Reagan Day Dinner on May 12, but chairman Mark Franks said that in light of his comments, he “ended our contract” with Stone.

President Trump fired Stone during the 2016 campaign for Stone’s unprofessional behavior.  As the president was quoted by the Washington Post;

“I really don’t want publicity seekers who want to be on magazines or who are out for themselves. This campaign is not about them. It’s about victory and making America great again.”



SJW declares war on NFL cheerleaders

Killjoys are everywhere. Especially when it comes down to those cranky and politically correct SJWs.

Case in point is USA Today reporter Nancy Armour. In a recent article, the alleged journalist has her skivvies in a knot over, get ready for this, “No place in the NFL for cheerleaders in 2018“.

Nancy Armour.

As she penned her anger specifically at the NFL’s Houston Texans;

The Houston Texans aren’t even bothering with the pretense.

On their website is a photo gallery of the finalists from

last weekend’s cheerleader tryouts, and visitors are encouraged to vote for their

favorites. Are these action shots of the women that highlight their athletic ability or dance skills? Do they include a list of their qualifications?

Of course not. They’re headshots. Sorry, head and chest shots. Close-up ones, at that.

The better to ogle, you know.

This is undoubtedly the offending Houston Texans cheerleaders website. And yes, Armour correctly cites that the Texans are requesting the fans to vote for their favorite.

Hey Nanc, a few things I’d like to point out to you;

  • No one forced any of these women to sign-on as cheerleaders
  • It’s a fair bet that nearly every one of them consider their stint in the NFL as a plus on their resume, hopeful of a future career as a choreographer, model, university cheer coach or aspiring actress
  • Who are you to deny these women their shot at empowering themselves?

Speaking strictly for myself, I’d much rather ogle at these hotties than being forced to look at you dried-up, wrinkly, weathered and crusty… journalism diploma.



Again, speaking strictly for myself, I’m still debating if I’ll cast my ballot for Sierra of Baytown, TX or Victoria of Houston.

Sierra Quiroga and Victoria Price.

To be perfectly honest, none of these would-be cheerleaders are particularly all that busty. That kinda pokes a hole in Armour’s balloon.

So why is she trying so hard to screw-up their shot at success? Some people aren’t happy unless their bitchy.

The latest college fad – Sex with plants

Are you passionate for your posies? Ready to shag a shrub? Any chance you’re horny for horticulture?

Then the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor is the place for you.

You may also want to meet the University of Michigan’s Sarah Ensor, assistant professor of topics such as “Ecocriticism” and “Gender and Sexuality”.

For whatever bizarre reason, these particular classes come under the purview of the English Department, but I’ve quit trying to figure out the sanity of higher education in America ever since academia started granting Bachelor’s Degrees in Queer Studies.

Anyhow, as reported by Tom Ciccotta of Breitbart.com, Professor Ensor “published an academic journal article this month that argues that humans should establish erotic relationships with plants.”

But wait, it just gets weirder;

Ensor … begins by citing the “Ecosex Manifesto,” which was penned by UC Santa Cruz Professor Elizabeth Stephens. Breitbart News originally reported on Stephens and her “ecosex” movement in September. Then, Stephens was promoting her documentary in which she and others lick trees, roll around in mud, and engage in sexual acts with elements of nature.

Ensor begins her article by citing Stephens’ manifesto. “[Ecosexuals] make love with the earth… We shamelessly hug trees, massage the earth with our feet, and talk erotically to plants,” Stephens wrote.

And for the suckers parents picking-up the tab for their Soy-Boy or Hemale matriculating at the Land of the Big Blue, you can sleep well at night in the knowledge that Ensor is actually being paid to pen such “scholarly” papers with titles such as;

  • Relative Strangers: Contracting Kinship in the Queer Ecology Classroom
  • Queer Fallout: Samuel R. Delany and the Ecology of Cruising
  • Terminal Regions: Queer Ecocriticism at the End



Report: Trump forging Pan-Arab military force to relieve US troops in Syria

Warming the cockles of the hearts of every American who didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton, word is out in DC that the Trump Administration is seeking an Arab solution for an Arab problem.

Mark Moore of the New York Post is reporting that President Trump “is seeking to build a coalition of Arab forces to replace the United States military in Syria and help stabilize the region after the defeat of the Islamic State.”

While it has long been suspected that the official Arab past-time has been getting their asses kicked militarily by the Israelis, maybe there’s a chance that the Arabs, collectively, might have a bit more luck against their jihadist brethren.

And not only is the president looking for the Arab nations to take charge militarily in the once-ISIS held eastern third of Syria, but also pony-up the cash. It is there that roughly 2,000 American troops are wiping out the remaining nests of ISIS terrorists.

Reportedly, the governments of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Qatar have all been contacted to fund the military expedition.

As it turns out, it’s not only the Persian Gulf nations being approached by Team Trump.

While not technically Arabs but descendants of the Coptic race, word is bubbling to the surface that the Egyptians have been approached, albeit unofficially;

National security adviser John Bolton has reached out to Egypt’s acting intelligence chief, Abbas Kammel, to see if he would take part in the effort, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday.



Elitist James Comey forced to drink his pinot noir from ‘a paper coffee cup’

Poor James Comey. He had to admit in an hour-long TV interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that the poor dear was reduced to *sniffle, sniffle* drinking his California pinot noir from a paper cup.

As reported by Tyler O’Neil of PJMedia;

“Stunned by the news, Comey heads to the airport,” Stephanopoulos narrated. “It would be his last flight on the FBI jet.”

“So you’re in that private jet, basically alone, and what did you do?” the ABC News host asked.

“I drank red wine from a [paper] coffee cup, and just looked at the lights of the country I loved so much as we flew home,” the former FBI director recalled. He explained that his career was “over in a flash.”



But the now-fired ex-Director of the FBI was asked by Stephanopoulos if he believes that President Trump is fit to be the POTUS.

In an article penned by Matt Zapotosky and Devlin Barrett, both of the notoriously anti-Trump Washington Post, Comey is of the of the opinion that the Chief Executive is “morally unfit to be president”.

However, neither Zapotsky or Barrett followed-up if Stephanopoulos asking for any specific examples.

Furthermore, the reporters note that that Comey stated on the ABC News special, “This president does not reflect the values of this country”.

Again, the two reporters failed to follow-up by asking if Stephanopoulos asked Comey to provide and specifics.

Pelosi’s California: Silicon Valley burned-out shell of a home for sale, $800,000

Crazy Nancy Pelosi just may be on to something when she compared Trump tax cut-fueled $1,000 bonus checks to mere “crumbs.”

After all, Pelosi is the richest women in both houses of Congress.

Her estimated worth? A cool $43.4 million pelosiaccording to OpenSecrets.com.

So maybe a thousand clams really is nothing more than just pocket change to the likes of Pelosi and the rest of her Limousine Liberal pals.

But for a better idea of what exactly Joe and Jane Lunchbox have to deal with living in the Soviet Socialist Golden State, a recent report from KABC-TV (Los Angeles) paints a much gloomier picture than the vast majority of Americans could never imagine their hometown.

With San Jose located at the tail-end of California’s famed (and über-expensive) Silicon Valley, the city named in honor of Saint Joseph is literately just down the road from Pelosi’s 12th Congressional District.



As KABC cited;

An uninhabitable burned-out home in San Jose went up for sale at the price of $800,000.

While it may sound crazy, there are people willing to pay. A realtor said in less than 24 hours, 10 potential buyers contacted her. She anticipates selling it in a few days.

So what’s the reason for the high interest? Buying the charred home and rebuilding on the property is a lot cheaper than buying a brand new home in Silicon Valley.

As one of the studio anchors noted at the end of the video report;

“That is a testament to what’s going on in the state of California…”

Dimwitted Dem now finds out US airstrike results in ‘a couple hundred Russians killed’

“One squadron f*ucking lost 200 people…”

Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (NH) may be a member of the both the Senate’s Armed Services Committee and also the Foreign Relations Committee, but I’m getting the distinct impression that she’s not only behind the power curve, she’s also none-too bright.

As reported by London’s The Daily Mail, Professor Mike Pompeo had to convene a seminar on current affairs specifically for the Granite State lawmaker;

Responding to a complaint from Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen today that the Trump administration has not done enough to deter Russia – she pointed out that it had not enacted a slew of congressionally-approved sanctions – Pompeo agreed.

‘I readily concede that Vladimir Putin has not yet received the message sufficiently,’ he said. ‘And we need to continue to work at that.’

Continuing, Pompeo said that Trump has been tough on Russia.

‘It hasn’t just been sanctions, the largest expulsion of 60 folks was from this administration. This administration announced a nuclear posture review that has put Russia on notice that we are going to recapitalize our deterrent force.

‘In Syria, now, a handful of weeks ago, the Russians met their match. A couple hundred Russians were killed,’ Pompeo revealed. ‘The list of actions that this administration has taken, I’m happy to walk through each of them, but I don’t want to take up more time. The list is pretty long, ma’am.’



But wait! As someone on the Foreign Relations and Armed Services committees, why in the world would Shaheen even have to bring up such a patently stupid question?

As the openly left-leaning Newsweek magazine reported late last February, “recorded phone calls were made by personnel from CHVK Wagner, a Russian private military company.”

As noted by Newsweek;

In the first audio clip, a man says, “One squadron f*ucking lost 200 people…right away, another one lost 10 people…and I don’t know about the third squadron but it got torn up pretty badly, too…. So three squadrons took a beating.”

Canadian vlogger sheds tears over girlfriend slapping him

John Wayne rolls over in grave… film at 11.

Traditional notions of manhood may not be dead, but weepy-eyed Matthew Santoro has done his level best to drown it in his river of tears.

Yeah, yeah… I realize the below posted video dates back to 2016, but the example of toxic femininity-masculinity that Santoro is the embodiment of, has done nothing but continue to flourish.

In a YouTube episode entitled My Abuse Story, the hyper-sensitive Santoro never comes out and names the individual that he claims physically and emotionally “abused” him, but it eventually surfaced that the slapper in question is none other than former NBA cheerleader and D-list actress Nicole Arbour.

Apparently, she’s a big thing up in Canada.

the uber-hottie that reduced emotional sissy to tears.
Enough to drive you to tears – the uber-hottie that reduced emotional sissy to sniveling breakdown.

No stranger to YouTube herself, Arbour gained a moment of fame/controversy when she posted a video clip entitled “Dear Fat People“. Needless to say, her vid was less than complimentary to those suffering from being svelte-challenged.

As seen on the video below, host Cenk Uygur (formerly of the Al Gore abortion better known as Current TV, and also of the equally worthless MSNBC) described Santoro’s so-called abuser as a “douchebag”.

Obviously, Uygur doesn’t know the difference between someone who is a douchebage, and someone who uses a douchebag.



Tennessee co-ed triggers anti-gun liberals with graduation picture

Young Brenna Spencer isn’t exactly shy when it comes to sharing the following;

  • Her political affiliation
  • Her affinity for the Second Amendment
  • Her being a winner in the genetic lottery

The comely 22-year-old University of Tennessee at Chattanooga senior has decided to pose for her graduation photo in a fashion that has (no pun intended) triggered libturds everywhere.

As ABC News reported, Spencer purposefully posed with her pistol to “show who I am as a person.”



Spencer also added;

I did think that it would get a little attention but not to this degree. It was really, really surprising to see the amount of hate that I got.

However, Twitter aficionado Jim Sydoriak probably said it best;

The PoliSci major is due to graduate this May.

Another example of Spencer showing off her assets.brenna-spencer1

Only two-thirds of Millennials firmly believe the Earth is round

I realize that young folks want to rage against The Man, but don’t you think being pissed at Copernicus is taking it a bit too far?

The latest dance craze all the Millennials are boogying to is that a disturbingly high number think the planet is actually flat.

In spite of the corporate bosses at Big Globe trying to convince us otherwise, the professional opinion collectors at the Silicone Valley-based YouGov.com queried 8,215 adults across the nation to ask a simple question:

Do you believe that the world is round or flat?

Rather than a simple “yes” or “no”, the interviewees were given five varying degrees of the how strong their opinion was;

  • I have always believed the world is round
  • I always thought the world is round, but more recently I am skeptical/have doubts
  • I always thought the world is flat, but more recently I am skeptical/have doubts
  • I have always believed the world is flat
  • Other/Not sure

The good folks at YouGov have their stats broken down by the following specific categories;

  • By political party
  • By gender
  • By region
  • By age
  • By income
  • By what you personally consider your level of religious sentiment



If you choose to take a peek at the various graphs, you’ll see that while some stereotypes are busted, some remain the same.

Case in point: While Southerners are supposedly not as bright as their Yankee brethren, the numbers are nearly exact. Myth – busted.

But when it come to Millennials nation-wide, well… let’s just say that government K-12 plus $100,000 worth of college debt in order to major in The History of Bubbles has come to its logical conclusion.

I hope you’ll understand, but instead of me giving the breakdown of how the youngsters responded, suffice it to sat that a mere 66 percent of those aged 18-24 are sure that the planet really is round.

One other point that the folks over at The Flat Earth Society still leaves me scratching my head, they claim that NASA photos from space showing a round Earth is nothing more than “I don’t trust the government”.

When asked about astronauts in general, their rationalization is;

“Most Flat Earthers think Astronauts have been bribed or coerced into their testimonies. Some believe they have been fooled or are mistaken.”

I’ll make a deal with the Flat Earthers… just head over to those giant mountain ice walls that supposedly keep all the water from falling off the edge of the world — organize an expedition, go to the absolute furthest-end of the planet… please just take a photo or two of the edge of the world.

Is it too much for me to ask for some photographic evidence?

Classless UFC fighter Conor McGregor arrested in NYC

Looks like the Clown Prince of the UFC may have learned a sorely-needed lesson in humility. Unfortunately, the lesson master had to be a New York City judge.

Seemingly forgetting that nearly everyone on the planet has a cell camera, Ireland’s Conor “The Notorious” McGregor decided to violently flip-out at the Barclays Center, Brooklyn’s multi-purpose sports arena.

As reported by the New York Post, regardless of his wealth, McGregor is looing at some serious time in prison;

He was charged with felony criminal mischief and misdemeanor counts of assault, attempted assault, menacing and reckless endangerment. He faces as much as seven years in prison, if convicted.

McGregor said nothing in court except, “Yes, your honor” when asked whether he understood terms of the orders of protection against him – barring him from contacting fighters Michael Chiesa and Raymond Borg, who were hit with flying glass.

While the man punched identified as Jason Ledbetter, one of the two UFC fighters just may face a career-ending injury due to the shattered glass. Specifically, glass scratches to the eye;

Borg suffered a cornea abrasion to his left eye and bruising to his left cheek, while Chiesa had cuts to his face and hand – causing their bouts on Saturday night at the Barclays to be canceled.

It’s still unreported the extent of the glass-induced abrasions to Borg’s eye, but it’s a sure bet that glass to the eye is never a good thing.



There’s a notch in the crotch: Eight dudes on Iran’s chick soccer team

I’ll admit it… it took me awhile to come up with a male alternative to “junk in the trunk”.

Now that I have that out of the way, it turns out that eight players on the Iranian national women’s soccer team are rockin’ both an X and a Y chromosome.

As reported by Warner Todd Huston of Breitbart.com, the famously repressive Iranian authorities apparently don’t have much of a problem with guys becoming girls. Even those caught mid-stream.



The news broke after an Iranian official, Mojtabi Sharifi, admitted that “[Eight players] have been playing with Iran’s female team without completing sex change operations.”

Soccer authorities ordered all members of Iran’s team to undergo gender testing. The names of the males in the team were not identified.

“Gender change operations are legal in Iran according to a fatwa – or religious ruling – pronounced by the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, spiritual leader of the 1979 Islamic revolution,” the Telegraph reports.

The revelation is nothing new for Iran’s female teams. The problem has been extant for a decade, at least. Rumors abounded in 2010 that members of the female team were men and the nation’s soccer authority introduced random gender checks in 2014 after members of the women’s team were revealed to be men.

Open Borders advocates playing with Pandora’s Jar

As the ancient myth goes, that über-doofus Pandora really screwed things when she busted open Zeus’s wedding present. Goofy chick just couldn’t keep well enough alone.

Quicker than Sonny Corleone could say “Badda-boop, badda-beep, badda-bang“, Pandora released the following evils upon humanity;

  • Old age
  • Sickness
  • Insanity
  • Pestilence
  • Vice
  • Passion
  • Greed
  • Crime
  • Death
  • Theft
  • Lies
  • Jealousy
  • Famine

Much like Pandora, liberals present-day either don’t think things through to their logical conclusion, or are under the misconception that actions don’t have consequences.

For the sake of argument, let’s assume that the Loony Left gets their wish — no more border control.

Now it’s time for the next obvious sequential step — we have the moral obligation to “spread around the wealth” as Barack Obama once famously proclaimed.

According to who specifically are we Americans under any type of “moral obligation” to spread our nation’s wealth to those here not only illegally, but also for those considered poor?

I’ll tell you who they are;

  • The liberal media
  • The liberal politicians
  • The liberal acedemics
  • The liberal clerics

I’ll even give examples. As self-admitted liberal Peter Beinart of The Atlantic magazine wrote in the summer of 2017 edition;

Entry to the United States is, for starters, a boon to immigrants and to the family members back home to whom they send money. It should be valued on these moral grounds alone.

Liberals must take seriously Americans’ yearning for social cohesion. To promote both mass immigration and greater economic redistribution, they must convince more native-born white Americans that immigrants will not weaken the bonds of national identity.

Then there’s the everything medical and health news service MedicalXpress.com in regards to Obama’s Affordable Care Act, and the opinions of Associate Professor Patricia Illingworth (medical and business ethics, as well as health policy and bioethics and the law) and Professor Wendy E. Parmet (health, disability and public health law) both of Northeastern University;

Calling it a “moral obligation” and a “global public good,” Illingworth and Parmet suggest that healthcare is a human rights issue, and that extending coverage in the U.S. to non-citizens could actually alleviate both the cost and care burdens on everyone. In fact, the researchers co-authored a book on the subject, The Health of Newcomers: Immigration, Health Policy, and the Case for Global Solidarity, that ties together their expertise—Illingworth, professor of philosophy and fellow at the Carr Center for Human Rights at Harvard University; and Parmet, the Matthews Distinguished University Professor of Law.

And as penned by Adam Lee of the religion-centered Patheos;

On a first pass, it’s hard to see what argument could be made against open borders. Shouldn’t travel be a basic human right? (It is, according to the United Nations.) Why shouldn’t I, or any human being, be able to move freely and to live wherever I choose? It strikes me as indefensible – another form of segregation, really – to say that there are some parts of the planet where I can never go, just because of where I was born.



OK, I get it. Free everything to whoever is categorized as poor or low income. So who exactly are the poor and low income people of the world that have a right to everything American?

According to a report by the Pew Research Center regarding personal income across the globe, per person;

  • Poor (living on $2 or less daily)
  • Low income ($2.01-$10 a day)
  • Middle income ($10.01-$20 a day)
  • Upper-middle income ($20.01-$50)
  • High income (more than $50)

Keep in mind that globally a “poor” singular person is a yearly income of no greater than $730.  ($2 a day X 365 days per year = $730).

Again, according to Pew, this is the percentage of who falls into which category;

  • Poor – 15%
  • Low income – 56%
  • Middle income – 13%
  • Upper middle – 9%
  • High income – 7%

According to the Pew global guide, a single person who subsists on $33.26 is nearly smack-dab in the middle of the “upper middle income” category. Annually, that person makes $12,140.

Know what else the total of $12,400 is? It’s the Federal Poverty Line. So as far as the world is concerned, their upper middle income is our poverty-stricken.

But back the status of the world’s less fortunate. The total percentage of the world that makes less than the American Federal Poverty Level (the poor, low income, and middle income according to Pew) comes to 84% of the human population of planet Earth.

The global population is approximately 7,613,100,000. Eighty four percent of that total is 6,395,004,000

Forget about the 1,500 “caravan” of wannabe illegals from Central America.

You ready for almost six and a half billion?

Gens Mattis and Dunford make a boy’s Make-A-Wish dream come true

There’s an old saying among members of the Corps;

Marines have a soft-spot for kids and dogs.

Possibly best exemplifying such would be the examples set by the Secretary of State Gen. James “Chaos” Mattis, USMC (Retired), and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph “Fighting Joe” Dunford, USMC.

The duo greeted North Carolinian Cooper Smith, 16, to the Pentagon, making his wish come true to visit the headquarters of the American armed forces.

In a press release from the Department of Defense;

“The people I met were fantastic and seemed to really care about the country,” Smith said. “I wanted to see how the Pentagon works and see how each single factor plays into each other. I thought things would be more independent, but I saw how each [service branch] relies on each other.”

His admiration for the military comes from his recognition of the service and sacrifice of the nation’s men and women in uniform, he said.



Even though young Cooper wouldn’t be medically qualified to serve once he becomes of age, he’s making his own quiet heroism felt back home (emphasis mine);

He volunteers at several organizations in North Carolina, including the Ronald McDonald House and Brenner’s Children’s Hospital, and he initiated a project that secures used books, toys, and games for a school in near Winston-Salem, North Carolina, with a high percentage of students from low-income families. He donated bags of books and games to begin the initiative, and so far, the project has accumulated several truckloads of donations to help the school.

According to the National Institute of Health’s official website, Smith lives with “Neurofibromatosis type 1 [which] is a condition characterized by changes in skin coloring (pigmentation) and the growth of tumors along nerves in the skin, brain, and other parts of the body.”

London murder rate surpasses New York

The mayor of London, the Right Honourable Sadiq Khan once said not all that long ago that the British capital is “the safest global city in the world, and one of the safest cities in the world.”

Careful, Saddie. You might take care that those words don’t sneak up and bite you dead on the six.

Oops… too late.

As reported by Jack Montgomery of Breitbart London, meddy olde London Towne has broken a record versus the Big Apple that the Brits were quite proud of; specifically that New York has annually had a higher murder rate since 1800, Anno Domini.



That’s right, for the past two months in a row, New Yorkers have the edge on not being murdered.

Specifically, during the month of February, London has seen 15 killings as compared to New York’s 14. Even worse (or better, depending which city you live in), during March, London’s murder numbers again edged out New York, 22 killings to 21.

As Breitbart’s Montgomery noted;

The change is partly a consequence of Mayor Khan’s campaign against using stop and search on ethnic minorities, with London police chief Cressida Dick admitting that constables have become “fearful” of confronting suspects as they “might get into trouble or might not be supported if they had a complaint”.

Oh, but it doesn’t end with mere homicide. Montgomery also cites;

  • London was already the more dangerous of the two cities for almost every other category of violent and sexual crime
  • Londoners are six times more likely to be burgled than New Yorkers
  • Three times more likely to be raped than New Yorkers
  • One and a half times more likely to be robbed than New Yorkers

But fret not, Saddie Khan is busy keeping himself fighting crime. As seen in the video below, he’s doing what he can to pass newer and more strict regulation from tech companies to ban “racist social media messages”.

Did the South American Socialist honestly deny the existance of Hell?

“An error which is not resisted is approved; a truth which is not defended is suppressed…. He who does not oppose an evident crime is open to the suspicion of secret complicity.” – Pope Felix III

Presider-in-Chief Bergoglio is at it again.
 His rather schizophrenic brand of eschatology is again sowing confusion and dissent among the Faithful.

As everyone by now knows, he supposedly has denied the very existence of Hell.

In all fairness, when I first heard this I just blew it off as just another anti-Catholic rant.

Upon looking a bit deeper into the accusation, come to find out that this was published by Eugenio Scalfari, the 93 year old professional atheist of La Repubblica, Italy’s communist-friendly newspaper.

Scalfari, famed for never taking notes or using any recording devices, only relying on his memory, is reporting that his sit-down with Bergoglio went something like this;

[Scalfari:] Your Holiness, in our last meeting you told me that at a certain point our species will disappear, and God, always using His creative seed, will create other species. You never spoke to me about souls who die in sin and go to hell to suffer there for eternity. Instead you spoke to me of good souls who are admitted to the contemplation of God. But what of evil souls? Where do they go in punishment?
[Francis:] They do not go anywhere in punishment. Those who repent obtain the forgiveness of God and go among the ranks of those who contemplate him, but those who do not repent and therefore cannot be forgiven vanish. Hell does not exist, only the disappearance of sinful souls.

Now I’m never one to take the word of a watered-down communist, but the official Vatican response came up as being, as usual for Bergoglio, it was confusing and more than capable of sowing dissent.

As reported by the National Catholic Register;

In a statement Thursday, the Vatican said the Pope had “recently received” Scalfari “in a private meeting at Easter, but did not grant him any interviews.”

It added that “as reported today” by Scalfari, “the article is the result of his reconstruction, in which the exact words spoken by the Pope are not quoted.” The statement said “no quotation marks in the above article should therefore be considered as a faithful transcription of the Holy Father’s words.”

What the hell is that suppose to mean?

I have a novel idea… how about just a flat-out denial that he didn’t just piss all over 2,000 years Catholic teaching?

I’m writing this in the most fair and objective way possible. The only conclusion I can come up with is that this man is playing with literal fire.
