    A convicted murderer who helped to stop the London Bridge terror attack last November will have his sentence cut after the Queen intervened. Steven Gallant, 42, was on day release at an event for reformed prisoners in Fishmongers' Hall when Usman Khan began his attack. Gallant, armed only with a Narwhal tusk, helped to restrain Khan, who was wearing a fake suicide vest and was armed with two knives.

    Sept. 16 (UPI) — Barbados Governor-general Sandra Mason said Wednesday her Caribbean island nation has decided to remove Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II as its head of state and declare itself a republic. Barbados, a tourist destination in the eastern Caribbean 700 miles off the Venezuela coast, won independence from Britain in 1966 but has remained a British commonwealth realm.

    by Samantha Foster The BLM cult is spreading and having some ugly impacts on our society everywhere. A Black woman who was blocking the aisle of a Spirit Airlines flight with her body and bag, while talking with people in their seats. When asked to move, she then launched into a crazy, racist, Black Supremacist rant against the flight attendant and multiple white passengers, threatening violence against several. Here the attendant, who was trying to prepare for takeoff, and had waited for several minutes for the woman to move, tries to get past her. The Black woman then claims...

    Brian May landed in the hospital this week, but not because of anything coronavirus-related. On Wednesday, the Queen guitarist and astrophysicist shared an Instagram from the hospital wearing a face mask revealing that he tore his butt muscles "to shreds" while gardening. "The Virus didn’t get me yet - thank God," May, 72, wrote in the caption. "I managed to rip my Gluteus Maximus to shreds in a moment of over-enthusiastic gardening. So suddenly I find myself in a hospital getting scanned to find out exactly how much I’ve actually damaged myself. Turns out I did a thorough job -...

    Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) announced Wednesday that the city's stay-at-home order would be extended through May 15 as the coronavirus pandemic continues to hamstring the nation's capital. The extension applies to all social distancing guidelines that Bowser had already put in place, meaning that schools and nonessential businesses will stay closed. Bowser said that the city would need to see a continuous two-week decline in hospitalizations and positive tests before considering relaxing measures. Additionally, Bowser said that D.C. residents must now wear some sort of face covering or mask at hotels and in taxis and rideshares. The city's...
  • Queen’s Brian May says the coronavirus pandemic is meat eaters’ fault

    NY Post ^ | Hannah Sparks
    According to Queen guitarist and armchair epidemiologist Brian May, the coronavirus outbreak should be blamed squarely on meat eaters. “This pandemic seemed to come from people eating animals, and it’s becoming more well known that eating animals is not the greatest thing for our health,” the 72-year-old tells NME. “We’ve seen more of the effects of how eating animals has brought us to our knees as a species,” he continues. “I think it’s time to re-examine our world in a way that doesn’t abuse other species.” May, who recently converted to veganism in January, tells the music news site that...

The Queen said in a statement: 'Following many months of conversations and more recent discussions, I am pleased that together we have found a constructive and...

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reportedly want to make Los Angeles their new home following the announcement that they will "step back" as members of the Royal Family, but only after Donald Trump's presidency ends. Even though the couple plans to live in Canada, their true goal is to eventually have a home or business in Los Angeles -- only after Trump leaves office, anonymous sources told the Daily Mail. Markle, 38, has been openly critical of Trump, reportedly calling him "divisive" and misogynistic" back in 2016. The Duchess of Sussex threatened to move to Canada if he defeated Hillary...

    Queen‘s Roger Taylor has been made an OBE in the New Year Honours list. The list, which was drawn up and approved during Theresa May’s premiership, rewards a lineup of well-known figures from the worlds of art and sport. But the vast majority (72%) of the 1,097 to be recognised were people who work in their communities. Taylor, best known as the drummer of Queen, has campaigned for the awareness of Aids, launched a musical featuring Queen’s greatest hits and is one of the few living people to appear on a Royal Mail stamp. The 70-year-old multi-instrumentalist, born in King’s...

    Princess Leonor of Spain is not your average teen. The 14-year-old heir to the Spanish throne — nicknamed Spain’s “Disney Princess” for her flowing blonde locks — delivered an important speech at the Princess of Girona Foundation awards in Barcelona on Monday amid a backdrop of anti-royal street protests aimed at her father, King Felipe Vi, 51. (Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia, a semi-autonomous region in northeast Spain whose push for independence has resulted in the country’s biggest political crisis in decades.) To make matters even more daunting, Leonor — who holds the title of Princess of Girona —...

    Freddie Mercury, perhaps one of the most eccentric, enigmatic, talented, and gifted vocalists in the 20th century, was born Farrokh Bulsara on September 5, 1946 in modern-day Tanzania. Farrokh is a popular Persian name meaning fortunate and happy. Farrokh's family followed the Zoroastrian faith, and they were the original Persians who were forced to flee from Persia to India to save their lives, culture, and religion. They left all their possessions behind and took with them their honor; their dignity; and the Avesta or Zend-avesta, the sacred book of Zoroastrianism, the teachings of the prophet Zoroaster (Zarathustra). According to his...

    You might not care what Keith Richards or Jimmy Page think about Pluto's status as a dwarf planet, but when Queen guitarist Brian May speaks up about it, it's worth a listen. May, who received his doctorate in astrophysics in 2007, posted his Pluto thoughts on Instagram late Wednesday after hearing about how NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine still thinks of Pluto as a full-on planet. The International Astronomical Union (IAU) tightened up its definition of a planet in 2006 and demoted Pluto to dwarf-planet status, sparking an ongoing debate that just won't rest. May is on the pro-planet side of...

    She’s not “just a figurehead.” Her Majesty The Queen is Britain’s final constitutional backstop. On Aug. 28, she acted in the interest of the majority of people in Britain. She approved Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s request to suspend Parliament from early September to mid-October. The move paves the way for Johnson to follow through on Brexit. The British people voted to leave the European Union in June 2016, but Parliament has sought to thwart the people’s will for the last three years. Parliament has of course done itself no favors as of late: originally voting in favor of the referendum...

    Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke compared the rhetoric of President Trump to Nazi Germany Monday, before declaring, “Well, Jesus Christ, of course he’s racist.” O’Rourke joined MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” to discuss his thoughts on the tragic mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio when host Joe Scarborough criticized Republicans who don’t condemn rhetoric used by Trump. “I mean the president has not been shy. He’s not been saying this behind closed doors. This is out in the open. All people of one religion, inherently defective ... should be banned from the shores of this country,” O’Rourke said on...

    The first glimpse of the upcoming limited series shows us Mirren as the legendary monarch, who was Empress of Russia from 1762 until 1796, making her the country's longest-ruling female leader. The series will show us Catherine toward the end of her rule in the 18th century, when she begins a steamy relationship with Grigory Potemkin (Jason Clarke), a military leader. "When I was young I dreamed of freedom, I dreamed of breaking chains," Catherine can be heard saying in the trailer. "But as you get older, your choices narrow. So instead I gave us an empire, but I knew...

    A survey of notoriously left-leaning historians conducted by C-Span last year ranked Ronald Reagan well ahead of Democrat icons Bill Clinton and Barack Obama in the “best U.S. presidents” contest. Since it’s nothing more than a popularity poll I would deem it meaningless but for one thing: while in office Ronald Reagan was disliked and maligned nearly as much as President Trump is today. That he cracked the top 10 at all is astounding. Not that the media was as blatant about their liberal leanings during the Reagan years as they are now that they enjoy the very vocal support...
