  • Man drives SUV into North Carolina restaurant, killing 2; police call it 'domestic' incident

    05/20/2018 7:37:38 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 50 replies
    Katelyn Self, a deputy with the Gaston County Sheriff's Office, was killed at the Surf and Turf Lodge in Bessemer City, officials announced at a news conference Sunday afternoon. The second woman who died was identified by Fox 46 as Amanda Self. Investigators said that 62-year-old Roger Self, Katelyn Self's father, and reportedly Amanda Self's father-in-law, drove right into the restaurant -- apparently on purpose. The Gaston Gazette reported that restaurant staff claimed Roger Self went with his family to the restaurant and had them seated. The father then allegedly went outside and purposely drove his Jeep into the building.

    **SNIP** After Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich was murdered in 2016, conservative lobbyist Jack Burkman baffled some people when he paid for a private investigation to find the killer. Then in March, Burkman himself became the victim of a mysterious shooting and was hit by an SUV in a parking garage when he was picking up documents from someone he thought was an FBI whistleblower. Using fingerprints, detectives tracked down the suspect and it turned out to be Kevin Doherty, a man who had worked for Burkman on the Seth Rich case.

    The very first post on this blog concerned a court case I had brought against a coroner, about an inquest into a death.  Since then, there has been a long, drawn-out court case against a council that occurred because a police officer took exception to some of the earlier posts on this blog, all of which are still here.  That case is presently in Strasbourg, awaiting a decision on admissibility. It looks as though I am not going to be able to escape from my duty, which seems now to be to bring another court case before long, this time against the...

    Last week I and others pondered aloud the very real probability that the British medical system, with the collusion of Britain's legal system and even the Roman Catholic hierarchy in that country, murdered Alfie Evans in cold blood.  They did the deed just before he attained his second birthday, which is today.  The timing of that is no coincidence.  They appeared in a hurry to have him die before he reached his second birthday, and there is a reason as explained here. "Oh, it's just a tin-foil-hat crank conspiracy website!", one may poo-poo.  If you believe that, did you search...

    ENGLAND, May 7, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – As a high-profile lay Catholic commentator in England, Caroline Farrow has experienced online abuse for years. Unfortunately, Farrow’s advocacy for Alfie Evans’ family has led to unprecedented levels of harassment. Not only have strangers sent her insults and threats over Twitter, they have published her address, phone number, and the name of her children’s school. Thanks to prank callers, her phone has been ringing off the hook. Last week police advised her to shut down her Twitter account for 72 hours. “It’s just crazy,” Farrow told LifeSiteNews from her home in England on Friday...

    The exotic concept of spontaneous generation was taken seriously by astute thinkers for a long time before the invention of microbiology. Of course, they knew about the proximate process of birth, but the biological source of life itself exercised such minds as Anaximander six hundred years B.C. and Saint Augustine, Shakespeare, and the philosopher of fishing Izaak Walton, and was at least a puzzle to Darwin. Spontaneous generation was the theory that living organisms could arise from inanimate matter, like fleas born from dust, or mice from salt and bees from animal blood and, in the speculation of Aristotle, scallops...

    HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The news of Ben and Rene Ruiz's deaths come as a shock for the many people who described the couple as happy, loving and groundbreaking in the gay community. Houston police say the men, who were in the midst of a divorce, died in a murder-suicide inside a million-dollar home near the Galleria. Their bodies were discovered Thursday inside a bathroom at their home on Markham Street near Weslayan. "It's not truly set in yet," said Ben's longtime friend, Edward Sanchez. "I think deep down inside I'm waiting to hear from him." Sanchez said the couple...

    Neo-Marxist Rudi Dutschke's "long march through the institutions of power" has reached the Roman Catholic College of Cardinals. Cardinal Joseph Tobin welcomes openly gay Catholics to Holy Mass in his cathedral. Cardinal Walter Kasper supports giving Holy Communion to couples living in adultery. Cardinal Reinhard Marx protests against the crucifix being displayed in government buildings and endorses blessings for same-sex couples. Cardinal Jozef de Kesel declares that gay sexual experience should be a possibility in the Church. Cardinal Blase Cupich promotes a "New Paradigm" for Catholic morality and argues that active gays can receive Holy Communion if their conscience permits. Cardinal Vincent Nichols is the latest recruit to the ranks of the men in red....

    As the world received the terrible news of Alfie Evans' passing this morning, his Italian team of lawyers and consultants was still working tirelessly to exhaust all possible means to get him to Italy. Monica Boccardi, one of the four lawyers from Giuristi per la Vita ("Lawyers for Life"), who had been following Alfie since last July, was on Italian television a day before the infant's tragic death.    Lawyers for Life had taken the case to heart because "firstly, it isn't just a case. It's a child. A defenseless child. It's David against Goliath," she said. Boccardi also complained of "judicial harassment" by the...

    British Prime Minister Theresa May has finally weighed in on the Alfie Evans case, offering condolences to the family but ultimately siding with Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. During a visit to Brooklands Primary School in Sale, Greater Manchester on Monday, May received a question as to whether she would support Alfie’s Law, legislation proposed by British Member of European Parliament Steven Woolfe to restore parental rights over medical decisions in similar cases. Alfie died Saturday at Alder Hey, which had removed his ventilator five days earlier in defiance of his parents’ wishes. Alfie’s doctors said he had an undiagnosed and...

    UK toddler Alfie Evans allegedly died within hours of receiving four different drugs from a nurse at Alder Hey hospital, Italian media is reporting. The information that Alfie was given four injections has also been obtained by LifeSiteNews from two different sources with connections to the Evans family.  Alfie Evans died in Liverpool’s Alder Hey children’s hospital on Saturday morning at 2:30 AM. According to Italian newspaper La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana, a nurse entered the child’s cubicle after his father Tom had been called aside and gave him four drugs. A source close to the family told LifeSiteNews that these were...

    Alfie held up the removal of life support, but Alder Hey denied the oxygen brought to the child without permission. The baby was not fed for 36 hours and the lung infection was not treated but it was still stable, so that Thomas was convinced to have almost one foot out of the hospital that negotiated the silence of the press in exchange for more contributions vital. Just before the child was given small drugs.

    Some magazine stories are fishhooks; they work their way into your mind and don’t come out. Rachel Aviv of The New Yorker has written several such pieces in the last year, including one about an African-American mother’s battle to keep her brain-damaged daughter alive after the girl was declared clinically dead, and another about the way court-appointed legal guardians in Nevada exploit the elderly placed into their care.I’ve been thinking about both stories while watching the drama of Alfie Evans, an English almost-2-year-old with a devastating brain condition whose parents were denied the chance to move him to another hospital...

    Following the passing of the sick British toddler on Saturday, there has been international outrage and disappointment from thousands of supporters.  Alfie Evans' parents, Tom Evans and Kate James, confirmed Saturday on Facebook that their son died, saying, "Our baby boy grew his wings tonight at 2:30 a.m. We are heart broken. Thank you, everyone, for all your support." The post has since been liked by more than 231,000 people.  News of Alfie's passing prompted a score of reactions, including from two members of the European Parliament (MEP) who criticized the bishops and priests of England for failing to act on behalf...

    MUNICH, Germany, April 27, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A leading German pediatrician is saying that the way the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) is dealing with disabled toddler Alfie Evans and his parents would never happen in his country given its history with the Nazi regime. “We have learned in Germany because of our history, that there are things that you do not do with severely disabled patients,” Professor Nikolaus Haas, head of the Child Cardiology and Pediatric Intensive Medicine Unit at Munich University Hospital, told Germany’s Die Welt newspaper in an April 26 article. “Our ethical understanding in Germany is...

    The law of the Lord is without spot, converting souls: the testimony of the Lord is faithful, giving wisdom to little ones (Psalm 18:8). This is an important message which we hope will soon reach Tom, Kate and their supporters. It is already clear from the ministrations of Fr. Gabriele Brusco, the practical assistance provided by Catholics from England and abroad, the many exchanges on social media, the prayers of Catholics last week outside of Alder Hey and all around the world, and the various articles which we have ourselves posted here, that grassroots Catholics everywhere wholeheartedly support you.

    For 2500 years the Hippocratic Oath had guided, guarded and grounded the medical profession. It was a source of professional unity and pride, as well as an ancient and trusted ethical compass that assisted the profession (and patients) in the navigation of both familiar, as well as unchartered waters. Its certain call for physicians to be defenders of life, not destroyers of it, did not survive Roe and Doe. This is a commentary on the original Hippocratic Oath and the corrupted version. The Hippocratic Oath is attributed to Hippocrates of Cos (469-399 B.C.), who is also called the Father of...

    I was cut off from blogging a few days, and as I am now in a position to do it again I am informed that Alfie Evans has died and is now, a child baptised in the Catholic Faith who died before the age of reason, most assuredly in heaven. The consolation for the eternal destiny of the little boy must not distract us from the astonishing example of Nazi behaviour we have witnessed in his case: a hospital going to court to fight their way to kill a child entrusted to their care, and a judge siding with them...

    LONDON, April 27, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — The nephew of a renowned German Catholic philosopher and fierce opponent of Hitler, Dietrich von Hildebrand (1889-1977), has written an open letter to the bishops of England and Wales denouncing their response to Alfie Evans as an “abject failure.” In a letter dated April 27, London resident Jean Pierre Casey criticizes the UK bishops for praising Alder Hey hospital’s “integrity” and for “completely failing” to uphold Catholic teaching on life, the family, and God-given parental rights. Casey also excoriates the prelates for cozying up to the National Health Service (NHS) rather than serving the people entrusted to their care. “It is ever...

    Historically, both sides of the political spectrum in America have supported the rule of law and the Constitution. Additionally, other than the Democrats' longstanding racist oppression of black people, the positions held by both sides were generally differences that people of goodwill could hold. For example, good people can disagree on just what the tax rates should be. Since Roe v. Wade, that has changed, and the change has accelerated rapidly in the last eight years. The left in America has openly embraced evil, rejected the rule of law, and denied that Americans they disagree with have constitutional rights. That's...
