    President Biden and first lady Jill will meet with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle, the White House confirmed Thursday morning. The commander-in-chief and his wife will be welcomed by the monarch on Sunday, June 13, the final day of his visit to the United Kingdom for the G7 summit, marking the first leg of his three-country trip to Europe. The Group of Seven summit — scheduled to run from June 11 to 13 in Cornwall, about 300 miles west of London — will mark the US president’s first overseas trip since taking office in January.
  • ‘Verrazano’ 2.0? New Goethals Bridge Sign Misspells Bridge Name [as ‘Geothals’]

    People have been crossing the Goethals Bridge between Staten Island and New Jersey for decades, so they definitely noticed when a new guide sign went up and something didn’t look quite right. A green, diagrammatic guide sign that recently went up on the New Jersey-bound lanes of the Staten Island Expressway had a misspelling on it. The white letterings had two letters swapped places and they read “Geothals Bridge.” …

    Chinese drone maker DJI is offering up to one million yuan (£112,000) for information about drones that disrupted scores of flights at a Chinese airport. On four days this month - 14, 17, 18 and 21 - drones were blamed for stranding thousands of passengers at Chengdu Shuangliu International. Chinese reports said they caused 60 flight interruptions on 21 April alone. The bounty was a sign that the firm was taking the potential impact on its reputation seriously, suggested Prof David Dunn at the University of Birmingham. "Clearly they're concerned about their brand image, given how much they dominate the...

    Chinese company Da Jiang Innovations, the world’s largest maker of drones, has donated drones to 43 law enforcement agencies operating in 22 U.S. states to enforce social distancing rules. Police in Elizabeth, N.J., for example, are using the drones to surveil residents in places where patrol cars can’t easily reach, such as spaces between buildings and back yards.

    Woebegone Elizabeth Warren staffers — heartbroken and adrift after the Cambridge Democrat tearily ended her presidential campaign Thursday following on ignominious Super Tuesday showing — cried, drank, sought comfort dogs and made personal fundraising pitches as they faced sudden unemployment. “Does anyone in Logan Square have a pug that I can hang out with,” tweeted Morgan Sperry, an organizer for Warren, just as news broke that Warren would leave the race. “Feels like someone should’ve put the liquor store and bar down the street on notice this AM,” Warren’s national political director Rebecca Pearcey tweeted.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is deciding whether to continue her presidential campaign, an aide told The Daily Beast on Wednesday. “Elizabeth is talking to her team to assess the path forward,” the aide said. The development comes after the latest round of disappointing finishes on Super Tuesday where Warren not only failed to win a single contest, she came in third in her home state of Massachusetts , behind former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

    Every one of the icky Democrat party candidates is a wannabe tyrant who is not qualified to be president but that doesn’t mean one of them can’t win. I watched the Democrat primary debate and had very mixed feelings. On the one hand, I thought that this collection of despots, whether socialists (everyone but Mike Bloomberg) or just naturally despotic (Mike Bloomberg) doesn’t stand a snowball’s chance in a hot place come the general election. On the other hand, the mere fact that five of them are the ones the party faithful have winnowed down as potential presidents and that...

Now, Elizabeth Warren has infuriated her own brother with allegedly false claims that their father was a “janitor.” The Boston Globe reports: According to a family friend, (Warren's brother) David has disagreed with the way Warren calls herself the daughter of a janitor as she describes the work he found after losing a job as a salesman after his heart attack. “When she called her dad a janitor during the early stages of this, David was furious,” said Pamela Winblood, 78, a longtime friend of David who had fallen...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on Thursday delivered a speech at Clark Atlanta University, and declared that it is time to adopt Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s (D-TX) legislation on reparations. Warren delivered a speech at the historically black university Thursday evening and stressed the need to pass Lee’s reparations legislation, which “establishes the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans.” “Let’s be clear: It’s time for our government to have a full-blown national conversation about reparations,” Warren wrote in a tweet containing a video of her remarks:

    Despite scant polling evidence, Joe Biden’s continued lead, and serious concerns over her viability with the broader electorate, Elizabeth Warren’s Democratic presidential campaign has taken on an air of inevitability. Just this fall, the emcee of the financial television circuit, Mad Money’s Jim Cramer, has gone from wailing “She’s got to be stopped” to insisting, “I don’t think she’s nearly as anti-business” as commonly portrayed. Either way, Cramer continues, “I think there is such a thing called Congress.” The implication is even if the prairie populist by way of Massachusetts goes the distance, Wall Street’s network on Capitol Hill would...

    Forget that whole being an Indian thing. Today Elizabeth Warren is the poor teacher who was shown the door by the principal when he found out she was (dare I say the word in mixed company?) regnant-pay. Of course, both are lies. Her whole political career is built on lies. The latest one concerns her leaving teaching to be a stay-at-home mom for her daughter who was born on September 2, 1971. Although Warren lacked teaching credentials, she was granted a waiver. She was offered a second-year contract in April 1971 but resigned two months later because of her pregnancy....

In “one of the hardest letters I have ever written,” Smart wrote in a Facebook message to family and friends that “I have recently acknowledged to myself and my family that I am gay.”

    Walking through the Pittsburgh airport with his wife last October after a beautiful Hawaiian vacation, Matt Scoletti immediately felt the enormous shift that had happened in his hometown. The usual banter and laughter were gone, replaced by a heartbreaking heaviness. A huge sign that adopted the Pittsburgh Steelers logo read “Stronger Than Hate,” in response to the mass shooting in the city that occurred at the Tree of Life, Dor Hadash, and New Light House of Worship on October 27th. Scoletti stood in front of it, and a wave of resolve washed over him. “This was not only an attack...

    Voters encountering Elizabeth Warren on the presidential campaign trail these days often seem surprised. After a packed gathering at an elementary school in Concord, N.H., in April, a 40-something woman told me she had expected Warren to be more like Hillary Clinton but found them miles apart. A college student who caught Warren’s speech in Hanover said he was perplexed to learn that a woman once described by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s political director as a “threat to free enterprise” in fact believes in entrepreneurship and markets. And at an event in a Portsmouth high school cafeteria, a retired...

    Windsor, England (CNN) — Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump met Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle Friday evening, a regal conclusion to the official portion of the US President's visit to the United Kingdom. The Trumps entered the castle's Quadrangle by Range Rover after arriving on the castle grounds by helicopter. They arrived at the dais at 5:00 p.m. local time, where they were greeted by the Queen.

Born at the southern extremity of Christendom, where it borders of Musselman lands, she was destined by the Holy Ghost to seal with peace the victories of Christ, and prepare the way for fresh conquests. The blessed name of Elizabeth, which for half a century had been rejoicing the world with its sweet perfume, was given to her, foretelling that this newborn child, as though attracted by the roses which fell from the...

    “QUEEN ELIZABETH must claim her right to rule Muslims.” So ran a recent headline on the Arab Atheist Network, a web forum. It was only partly in jest. According to reports from Casablanca to Karachi, the British monarch is descended from the Prophet Muhammad, making her a cousin of the kings of Morocco and Jordan, not to mention of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s Supreme Leader.

It is grace that presides over the arrangement of these constellations in the heaven of the Saints; but sometimes it seems as if God wished to remind us that he is the sole Author of both grace and nature; and inviting them, in spite of the fall, to honor him unitedly in his elect, he causes sanctity to become a glorious heirloom, handed down from generation to generation...
