    Prime Minister Scott Morrison has recommended the Queen posthumously award World War II hero Edward 'Teddy' Sheean a Victoria Cross. Tasmanian Sheean, an 18-year-old with less than two years at sea, was an Ordinary Seaman on the minesweeper HMAS Armidale when it came under heavy attack from Japanese aircraft off the coast of what is now Timor-Leste in 1942. Mr Morrison ordered an expert panel re-examine the case for Sheean receiving Australia's highest military honour after earlier attempts had failed to recommend he receive a Victoria Cross. Sheean is recorded as helping launch life rafts before returning to his anti-aircraft...

    Things werent great before COVID-19, but at least only about 570 families, hungry, broke and on the brink of homelessness, needed help from the volunteers at St. Joseph Center in Los Angeles. Today, that number is about 860. A month from now, it could be in the thousands or even more. California is rapidly approaching what has been dubbed the eviction cliff, or the point where true protection from being evicted during the pandemic will fall away, at least for a short time. If that happens, as many as 1 million families across the state some 365,000 in...

Marsha Blackburn (R., Tenn.) and Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) accused the NBA of being complicit in "Chinese state-sanctioned abuse of children" after the league misled lawmakers on its training academy in Xinjiang, China. "Recent investigations suggest that your organization has been aware of Chinese state-sanctioned abuse of children in its Xinjiang basketball training camps, but did not take action," a Thursday letter from Blackburn and Rubio to NBA commissioner Adam Silver states. "The Chinese Government and Communist Party are...

    The Hill ^ | Aug 9, 2020
    President Trump suggested some states may "pay nothing" as part of the unemployment plan included in the coronavirus executive orders the president signed on Saturday. The memo Trump signed Saturday extends the enhanced unemployment benefits that expired about two weeks ago. The benefits will be lowered from $600 to $400 per week, with states required to cover 25 percent of the cost. Speaking to reporters Sunday on his way home from his New Jersey resort, however, Trump said some states may not have to pay, adding that "it will depend on the states." He said states will make an application...

    Q is the result of the sacrifices and commitment of countless patriots to win back our captured country from the Deep State and achieve the transformation President Trump promised in this campaign video. President Trump has said the awakening of the public is key to this transformation.Q describes this awakening as follows: "The Great Awakening ('Freedom of Thought’), was designed and created not only as a backchannel to the public (away from the longstanding ‘mind’ control of the corrupt & heavily biased media) to endure future events through transparency and regeneration of individual thought (breaking the chains of ‘group-think’), but,...

    Priest targeted for putting God above manSAN FRANCISCO (ChurchMilitant.com) - Secular elites are blasting a California priest for his traditional presentation of the Catholic faith. San Francisco mayor London Breed and Bay Area media are excoriating Fr. Joseph Illo, pastor of Star of the Sea parish in San Francisco, for encouraging his parishioners to attend Holy Mass safely during the California shutdown. Late last week, media source SFist accused Fr. Illo of making "a number of outrageously irresponsible statements that sound like they came from Fox News." One statement SFist found "outrageously irresponsible" was the priest's empirical observation...

    President Trump pulled an inside straight to win in 2016, and now he needs another one. The good news for Trump is that his approval rating has stopped falling recently. The bad news is that it has stabilized in the low 40s. Election-watcher Harry Enten points out that no president since Harry Truman has won with anything like Trumps negative net approval rating. Truman won at 6, while incumbents who lost (Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and George H. W. Bush) averaged out at about 13, roughly where Trumps number is. The presidents who won reelection averaged an approval rating of...

    After President Trump claimed Joe Biden was against God during a speech to his supporters yesterday, the media pounced. Over and over again journalists on the big three networks and cable news insisted Biden was a devout Catholic.This is the same media who feigned righteous anger at Trump standing in front of a church, yet demand you chuck the Bible out the window when it comes to Democrats antithetical beliefs on abortion and marriage. Thursday night, self-proclaimed Catholic host Chris Cuomo opened his show by bashing Trump as a fake Christian before going on to defend Bidens religiosity, with former...
