    A confrontation over a parking space at a Macon restaurant escalated into an all-out brawl that ended in the arrest of a 71-year-old woman, according to a Bibb County sheriff deputy’s report. Cellphone footage of the incident Saturday night shows a scene of people lunging and slapping each other inside the Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen. Before deputies arrested Judy James Tucker, she told them that the incident “started over a parking spot” and it was “because she was white and it was a race issue,” the deputy’s write-up said.

    BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:35 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS) resumed their assault in the southeastern countryside of Homs this morning, striking the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions near the town of Muhasah. ISIS began their attack by heavily shelling Syrian Arab Army’s positions near Muhasah, prompting the latter to respond with a barrage of missiles and artillery. Intense clashes would breakout between the Syrian Army and ISIS terrorists shortly after the exchange of missiles and artillery, with the latter taking the offensive in a bid to capture the 16th Air Defense Regiment. The 16th Air Defense Regiment is one of...

She said Syrian officials have been searching evacuees from Douma to ensure samples are not smuggled out. "A wider operation to conceal the facts of the attack is underway, supported by the Russians," she told lawmakers.

    The parents of terminally ill toddler Alfie Evans have lost their latest legal battle. Tom Evans and Kate James asked Court of Appeal judges to rule that the 23-month-old should be allowed to receive treatment in Italy. Earlier Alder Hey Children's Hospital urged protesters supporting the parents to show respect. Police are investigating "acts of intimidation" among hospital protesters. Ch Insp Chris Gibson said officers recognised the sensitivities involved: "Whilst many people have gathered to protest in a peaceful way, Merseyside Police is now investigating a small number of reports, some of which originate from social media, as well as...

However, given the history of such activity; and specifically given the history of the engagements and motives of the participants involved in this request; it is a troubling development.

    April 11, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Pope Saint John Paul II forewarned decades ago that priests, and indeed the Catholic Church herself, would pay a "high price" on account of remaining faithful to the Church’s perennial teaching on marriage and procreation. The late pontiff said as well it would be a “very serious mistake” to presume that Catholic teaching on marriage is but an “ideal” in need of modification. In his March 1984 address to Priests participating in a Seminar on “Responsible Procreation,” John Paul II spoke twice about the fact that men and women are entirely capable of grasping the...

    Comes after parents ask for their son's treatment abroadLONDON (ChurchMilitant.com) - The appeals court in London is allowing the hospital to pull the plug, contrary to the wishes of the parents of a sick British infant who want to treat their son abroad. On Monday, Lord Justice Andrew Moylan from the British Appeals Court dismissed the appeal, effectively handing down previous court rulings from the Supreme Court, European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), the appeals court and the High Court in London regarding the case involving Alfie Evans, the 23-month-old child with a rare degenerative neurological condition. Moylan summed up...

    The Arameans are a well-integrated Christian minority in the Netherlands. Originally they came from Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Southern Turkey. Dutch newspaper ‘De Telegraaf’ interviewed several of them and talked about the civil war in Syria. Christian refugee Johnny Shabo says that the same group responsible for the civil war in the eighties is now responsible for more chaos. The Muslim brotherhood that attacked the regime of Assad’s father earlier, are now attacking Assad junior’s regime. Shabo says that the leaders of ISIS and Al Qaeda who are fighting in Syria are part of the Muslim brotherhood. For Christian Arameans...

    Catholic church attendance in the United States fell by six percent between the pontificates of Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis, the sharpest drop in decades, a new Gallup poll has revealed. An average of 39 percent of U.S. Catholics attended church weekly during the heart of the Francis papacy, from 2014 to 2017, Gallup found in a survey released April 9, which represents a significant drop from the 45 percent of Catholics who attended weekly Mass from 2005 to 2008, in the early years of the Benedict pontificate. Weekly Mass attendance among American Catholics had stabilized in the mid-2000s...

Cohen was appearing in a Manhattan courtroom just days after the FBI raided both his home and office as part of their criminal probe.Hannity responded on his radio show, noting that the headline was a big nothing burger. Hannity has known Cohen for a long time and has sought his legal advice from time to time, but "not one" of those issues involved a matter between him and a third party. Michael Cohen has never...

    A federal judge in Washington State has declared that all civic groups nationwide must accept people of the other sex into their single-sex spaces and activities, or else be stigmatized and sued by the federal government. In legal jargon, Judge Marsha Pechman declared in a lawsuit against the Pentagon’s “transgender” policy that the federal government must use its powers to champion people who want to live as members of the sex, either inside the military or outside, just as it must use federal powers to suppress racism: Today, the Court concludes that transgender people constitute a suspect class. Transgender people...

    Western countries accused Moscow on Monday of preventing inspectors from reaching the site of a suspected poison gas attack in Syria and said Russians or Syrians may have tampered with evidence on the ground. The United States, Britain and France launched air strikes on Saturday against what they described as three Syrian chemical weapons targets in retaliation for a suspected gas attack that killed scores of people in the Damascus suburb of Douma on April 7. Syria and its ally Russia deny using poison gas during their offensive this month, in which they seized the town that had been the...

    Australian feminist Germaine Greer didn’t hold back when speaking about the future for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The 79-year-old public figure spoke about the soon-to-married royal couple and had some harsh predictions about how Markle, an American divorcee, will fit into her royal role. Harry announced on Monday that Markle will become a youth ambassador to the Commonwealth. Greer told “60 Minutes” she doesn’t think the 36-year-old former actress will enjoy being a full time royal. Referring to Markle’s first marriage, Greer said, “I think she’ll bolt… she bolted before. She was out the door.” She also slammed Markle’s...

    THE END OF “ROMAN CATHOLICISM?” by Roberto Pertici 1. At this point in the pontificate of Francis, I believe it can be reasonably maintained that this marks the twilight of that imposing historical reality which can be defined as “Roman Catholicism.” This does not mean, properly understood, that the Catholic Church is coming to an end, but that what is fading is the way in which it has historically structured and represented itself in recent centuries. It seems evident to me, in fact, that this is the plan being deliberately pursued by the “brain trust” that has clustered around Francis:...

    Simon Brown served in the army for 13 years. But in 2006, during a rescue mission, he was shot by a sniper in the face. Fortunately, by some miracle, he survived, but he had to undergo several surgeries – at least 25 of them – to reconstruct his face. Brown became partially blind, his jaw, cheekbones, and nose had to be reconstructed and reshaped, and he had to use a prosthetic eye. His new appearance made him feel self-conscious, and he lost his confidence. Living independently and adjusting to life without most of his sight has been a long and...

    The special election for an Arizona House seat is in a statistical dead heat in the final week of the race, according to a poll released on Monday. A poll from Emerson College found physician Hiral Tipirneni (D) narrowly leading with 46 percent, compared to former state Sen. Debbie Lesko (R), who is at 45 percent — well within the poll’s margin of error. Monday’s poll is an outlier and a huge swing in the direction toward Democrats, with other recent polling showing Lesko winning by double-digit margins. The latest public poll on Friday from OH Predictive Insights and ABC...
