    The lawyer for the women has told BBC Panorama he plans to serve subpoenas to force the Duke of York to testify as a witness in all five cases. He says the prince could have important information about sex trafficking. The prince says he did not witness or suspect any suspicious behaviour during visits to Mr Epstein's homes. The lawyer for victims of Epstein, David Boies said: "One of the things that we have tried is to interview Prince Andrew and to try to get what his explanation is. He was a frequent visitor. They ought to submit to an...

    Waukesha South High School is 'safe and secure' after a student was shot by an officer for pointing a gun at law enforcement, police say. Authorities said that a student notified administrators after hearing that a student was in possession of a handgun at school. "The school's Resource Officer immediately responded to the classroom, the SRO made efforts to secure the classroom by getting the other students to safety, said Chief Russell Jack. Other officers responded to the classroom and began talking with the suspect in an attempt to deescalate the situation. The 17-year-old student would not remove his hands...

    Catholics refute pro-gay Fr. Martin for claiming ‘married’ lesbian judge is victim of ‘discrimination’ EAST GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan, December 2, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Pro-gay Jesuit priest Fr. James Martin is claiming that a pastor in Western Michigan is guilty of “discrimination” for asking a lesbian judge in a same-sex “marriage” to not present herself to Holy Communion. Hundreds of Catholic laity and several prominent Catholic clergy have taken to social media to refute his arguments. Martin, ordained in 1999, is one of the most well-known promoters of normalizing homosexuality in the Catholic Church. In the past, he has supported homosexual couples kissing during...

    During the holiday season conservatives are going to spend lots of time across the dinner table from a family member that’s a know-it-all Democrat. No matter how much you’re determined to simply eat, laugh and watch sports, there’s always that one family member who will continue to goad you until talking President Trump and politics is unavoidable.  After you’ve destroyed that person with facts, instead of licking his or her wounds and accepting defeat, they actively recruit all of your other Democratic family members to gang up on you. Much like the original instigator, you quickly realize that their arguments...

    FULL TITLE: Military women are expected to be ‘good soldiers’ and have abortions. Pete Buttigieg’s plan would make it worse for them. On November 11, presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg revealed his plan to help veterans, including by eliminating what he calls “barriers to women’s success in the armed forces.” According to his campaign, the plan states that as president, Buttigieg would “ensure women’s health needs, including reproductive care, are accessible while they serve.” Abortion advocates have long been pushing for easier access to abortion for women in the military, claiming that women facing unplanned pregnancies need access to abortion in...

    I recently heard a liberal politician talk about the struggles that he had to go through to overcome his family’s poverty. He then shared his commitment as a politician to help others not have to go through such struggles. No struggles! The struggles of life are what make us stronger. They are a gift on the journey to true maturity. You can’t give people maturity; they earn it. Too many Americans have forgotten that life has always been difficult. It is by struggling through life’s challenges and overcoming obstacles that optimism, confidence and success are earned. Optimism comes from overcoming...

    Hillary Clinton on Monday hit Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., for his insistence that Russia and Ukraine interfered in the 2016 election, which the Democratic candidate lost to Republican Donald Trump. "Sen. Kennedy, why are you parroting Russian propaganda that U.S. intelligence officials tell us are designed to divide our country?" Clinton, the former Obama-era secretary of state, asked on Twitter. "Did you miss the briefing that day?" In a contentious interview Sunday on "Meet the Press" on NBC News, the first-term Kennedy insisted: "I think both Russia and Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election." He added that news organizations provided...

    Hundreds of Anglicans have called on Church of England bishops to speak out against proposals to decriminalise abortion. The open letter was signed by 384 people, including 49 members of the General Synod, concerned over the manifesto commitments by Labour and the Liberal Democrats. Many church leaders signed the letter, including Revd Dr Ian Paul, a member of the Archbishops’ Council, Revd William Taylor of St Helen’s Bishopsgate, and Revd Andrew Symes of Anglican Mainstream. ‘Most vulnerable’ The signatories said decriminalisation of abortion “would remove all sanctions in criminal law for those who perform abortions outside the limits set by...

    Jack Merritt, my classmate at Cambridge and a program participant, recited a poem he’d written on forgiveness and rehabilitation. I remember feeling surprised by his words, so unselfconsciously earnest. I’d known him mostly for his dry wit, his boyishly good looks and his reputation as a criminology class clown. Jack was stabbed to death during a terrorist attack near London Bridge on Friday. The attacker, Usman Khan, had been convicted of terrorism offenses in 2012. He was released from prison last year. Just before the attack, Jack was in Fishmongers’ Hall, a building adjacent to the bridge, helping to lead...

    Black Friday shopping lines weren’t the only queues frustrating people this past weekend. A number of Tesla drivers took to social media to vent about extremely crowded Supercharger stations that turned a promised fast stop into an hours-long slog to recharge during one of the year's busiest travel times. With Model 3 mass production in full swing, there are now well over 400,000 Teslas on American roads, and it appears that growth is exposing the Supercharger network's pain points in high-traffic times like this past weekend.One Facebook clip shows a line measuring roughly a quarter mile in length, consisting of...

    A new announcement from the predominantly black and largest Pentecostal church in the United States and school choice polling data show black voters pulling away from the Democrat Party on two dominant issues in the 2020 elections: abortion and education. Breitbart News reported last week that two recent polls demonstrate 34 percent of black likely voters approve of President Donald Trump’s presidency: A Rasmussen poll released Friday showed black likely voter approval of Trump at 34 percent. An Emerson Poll showed 34.5 percent approval by the same demographic. “Boom,” wrote black author and Trump supporter Deneen Borelli on Twitter, calling...

    Editor’s Note: This column was coauthored by Jerry Boykin. The thought of the world’s largest supply of recoverable oil falling into the hands of Russia and China is not a far flung idea. And with that, a fleet of warships docked on the coast of the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico, positioned to threaten the American national security. If America eventually surrenders its influence in Venezuela, this scenario could become reality.As of now, Nicolas Maduro is the ruthless socialist dictator of a crumbling Venezuela. Desperate to maintain his grip on power, it is very likely he will cede control...

    he renewed focus on the Steele dossier are cementing the case that the special counsel probe served as a taxpayer-funded political hit on President Trump. In April, when the special counsel’s report on Russian interference with the 2016 presidential election was released to the public, a glaring omission quickly made clear indicating Robert Mueller was either incompetent or a political hack. As I wrote at the time: “Not once in the 448-page tome does Mueller mention an investigation into whether Russia interfered with the U.S. presidential election by feeding dossier author Christopher Steele misinformation.” Today’s release of Glenn Simpson and...

    Pro-abortion 2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg quotes Jesus Christ in the first statewide South Carolina television ad of his campaign. The South Bend, Indiana mayor will release the new ad Tuesday in South Carolina, where internal focus groups conducted by Buttigieg’s campaign found that black voters see the mayor’s sexuality as a “barrier.” The 30-second television ad, titled “Welcomed Me,” includes clips of a speech Buttigieg gave last month at the Iowa Democratic Party’s Liberty and Justice Celebration, in which he quoted from the Bible. “In our White House, you won’t have to shake your head and ask yourself, ‘Whatever...

    What happens on the big screen doesn’t always stay on the big screen.  Actress Emilia Clarke, who rose to fame after starring in HBO’s Game of Thrones, recently revealed that she was pressured to film scenes naked for the show. She’s not alone – actresses from Evangeline Lilly to Jennifer Lawrence have admitted to either crying or drinking in response to filming scenes with little to no clothing.Speaking on Dax Shepard's Armchair Expert podcast, the 33-year-old expressed her disbelief when she first landed the role of Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, which premiered in 2011. “Obviously, I took the job,”...

    Attorney General William P. Barr has told associates he disagrees with the Justice Department’s inspector general on one of the key findings in an upcoming report — that the FBI had enough information in July 2016 to justify launching an investigation into members of the Trump campaign, according to people familiar with the matter. The Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, is due to release his long-awaited findings in a week, but behind the scenes at the Justice Department, disagreement has surfaced about one of Horowitz’s central conclusions on the origins of the Russia investigation.

    Full title: Psychiatrists Organize Campaign to Declare Trump 'Dangerous' as Part of Impeachment Congressional RecordPsychiatrists with the World Mental Health Coalition are soliciting signatures in a campaign to support the impeachment of President Donald Trump predicated on claims that he is mentally unstable. This campaign arguably violates the ethics of psychiatry, mimicking a historic attack on another Republican presidential candidate who successfully sued for libel after psychiatrists declared him unfit for the presidency. In an email forwarded to PJ Media, three psychiatrists with the coalition ask other psychiatrists to sign on to a petition to the House of Representatives Judiciary...
