    The five ordinary Londoners pictured above had been snitched out by neighbors for shirking the Catholic Mass under Queen Mary — the offense that Protestants would call recusancy when the mitre was on the other bishop. They had the sturdiness one would attribute to men and women of the common clay, and also the theological unsophistication; our martyrology caveats of their interrogation that “some of them attributed the title and honour of a sacrament to the holy estate of matrimony” — the standard Anglican and also Lutheran position was that there were only two sacraments, baptism and eucharist — but...

    Mexico is in the midst of a presidential election. Voting is scheduled for June 2, with the winner taking office October 1. The three candidates are frontrunner Claudia Sheinbaum, second-place challenger Xochitl Galvez, and male candidate Jorge Alvarez Maynez, in a distant third in single digits. On April 7, the first general election debate was held. The candidates made all sorts of promises which would require plenty of government spending, with almost no mention of wealth creation. They pledged allegiance to the LGBTQXYZ agenda, which is strong in Mexico. And, the candidates discussed immigration. That’s of interest to us, Mexican...

    SNIPRegarding blood biochemistry, the results were pronounced:Stevia administration caused a significant reduction in hemoglobin and hematocrit levels, and RBCs (red blood cells) count, compared to control groups.In female mice, stevia showed a significant decrease in WBCs (white blood cells) count.In reference to liver health, the results were again extreme:Stevia administration increased alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) levels. (AST and ALT are two of the liver enzymes doctors look at when trying to figure out if you have a problem with your liver.)Levels of liver triglycerides and cholesterol in male mice groups increased.Stevia significantly elevated liver cholesterol levels in...
  • Your Caregiver's English Language Proficiency Could Be a Matter of Life and Death

    If you are elderly or disabled, would you feel safe having caregivers with inadequate English-language skills? The recent death of Barbara Rymell in England, as reported in The Telegraph, shows us the danger of bringing in foreign caregivers and medical personnel with inadequate English skills. Against the residential home’s own policy, Barbara was left alone on a stairlift for five minutes. She got off the machine and attempted to walk up the staircase, but she fell back downwards, getting her head caught under the stairlift chair. This predicament was bad enough, but it wasn’t helped by the inadequate English skills...
  • DeSantis Was Always Going to Lose

    Donald Trump won Iowa decisively Monday night. Despite spending little money and time in the state (especially compared to his rivals), Trump won the caucus by 30 points. This was a humiliating defeat for his closest competitor, Ron DeSantis. Despite spending over $30 million on ads and visiting every county, DeSantis only eked out 21 percent of the vote. The Florida governor bet his whole campaign on Iowa, and he came up well short. However, he’s not dropping out. His campaign still insists he’s going to be the next president, but there’s no strategy or plan besides massive amounts of...
  • How The Euro Right Wins The Youth Vote

    Geert Wilders’s Party for Freedom won big in Dutch parliamentary elections last month. One of the keys to the nationalist’s party success was its large share of the youth vote. Young people in the Anglosphere tend to be more left-wing than their elders. Seeing the reverse in continental Europe always surprises outside observers. The Guardian tried to solve this mystery. It asked young Dutchmen why they voted for the Party for Freedom. The Dutch youth said they did so because it was the one party that addressed their concerns. Other European parties, such as AfD in Germany and National Rally...
  • The Real Fix To The Fertility Problem

    Highly Respected ^ | Dec. 19th, 2023 | Scott Greer
    American conservatives fell in love with Poland and Hungary. The two countries stand as models for what all right-wing governments should be. Not only do they keep migrants out, they also promote pro-family policies designed to boost birth rates. Many of their fans want America to adopt these same policies to fix our fertility woes. But the two countries are not quite the paragon of fecundity some may believe. Hungary did boost its fertility from the lowest in Europe after implementing pro-natalist policies, but its total fertility rate (TFR) still remains low. Poland’s TFR continues to rapidly decline in spite...

    Border Hawk Blog ^ | April 6th, 2024 | Allan Wall
    The website, founded by Peter Brimelow, has been on the internet since 1999. VDARE deals with immigration (legal and illegal), national identity, ethnic identity politics, race and crime, and related topics; especially aspects of these matters that are excluded by the Mainstream Media. That’s why VDARE is under attack and is currently in imminent danger of being abolished. Its payment processing has been shut down repeatedly. It’s been banned from YouTube and Facebook. Sadly, VDARE has been very shabbily treated by the conservative movement itself. VDARE is currently being destroyed by Leticia James, the attorney general of New York....

    “…[F]or I have seen violence and strife in the city. Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof: mischief also and sorrow are in the midst of it." - Psalm 55:9,10 There is a Mexican NGO called the Consejo Ciudadano para la Seguridad Pública y la Justicia Penal, A.C. which releases an annual list of the world’s 50 most violent cities. The country with the most violent cities on the list was Mexico, with 16. In second place was Brazil, with 10 cities, followed by Colombia with eight. The United States of America was #4 on the...

  • 1828: William Dyon and John Dyon, all in the family

    04/02/2024 11:33:16 AM PDT · by CheshireTheCat · 2 replies ^ | April 2, 2017 | Meaghan Good
    On this date in 1828, William Dyon, 45, and his son, John, 23, were hanged for the murder of William’s brother, who was also named John. The brothers had fallen out over their father’s inheritance; William Dyon Sr. had favored John’s family over William Jr.’s. Writing dramatically of the case in his book Foul Deeds and Suspicious Deaths in Doncaster, Stephen Wade described the brothers as sons of a Lincolnshire farmer, and the two boys were so different that this tale almost attains a biblical resonance, with jealousy, brooding and resentment, and finally a deathly hatred that led one brother...
  • 1307: Murcod Ballagh, beheaded

    04/01/2024 12:29:43 PM PDT · by CheshireTheCat · 4 replies ^ | April 1, 2015 | Headsman
    “In the yeare 1307 the first of Aprill,” Holinshed’s Chronicles of England, Scotland, and Ireland records, “Murcod Ballagh was beheaded neere to Merton by sir David Caunton knight.” First published in 1577, this document — heavily mined by Shakespeare for his histories — is silent as to the further particulars of the beheading. But the accompanying image depicting the execution surprisingly presents a guillotine-like device being employed for the task. s John Wilson Croker’s History of the Guillotine observes, this one illustration 270 years after the fact scarcely suffices to establish that a guillotine precursor really was in use in...
  • Is Biden’s media strategy aimed at avoiding the national spotlight?

    04/01/2024 11:04:26 AM PDT · by davikkm · 14 replies
    Recent reports have surfaced suggesting that President Biden will be pulling back from engaging with national media, opting instead for interactions with local reporters for the remainder of his campaign. This decision raises eyebrows and invites criticism, particularly given the lack of transparency and accountability it entails. But let’s dissect the facts here. Why the reluctance to face national reporters head-on? Firstly, Biden skipped a golden opportunity by declining an interview during the Super Bowl with CBS, where he would have likely faced relatively easy, softball questions. Furthermore, the glaring absence of solo press conferences from Biden’s agenda this year...

    WHY THE RESURRECTION IS IMPORTANT "Man," writes Loren Eisley, "is the cosmic Orphan." He is the only creature in the universe who asks, Why? Other animals have instincts to guide them, but man has learned to ask questions. "Who am I?" he asks. "Why am I here? Where am I going?" Ever since the Enlightenment, when modern man threw off the shackles of religion, he has tried to answer these questions without reference to God. But the answers that came back were not exhilarating, but dark and terrible: "You are an accidental by-product of nature, the result of matter plus...

    Fifty years ago tonight after a nine-month gestation I was decanted from my mother's womb. I very nearly didn't survive. When I came out I wasn't breathing or moving at all. It was twelve minutes before inhalation was finally induced. Some have wondered if I've been brain damaged because of that. I don't know. But here I am fifty years later, feeling better than when I turned thirty. God has brought me far, past a lot of dark times and pain. But I'm in a place where I'm truly thankful and looking forward to where the next fifty years take...
