  • PM's adviser Dominic Cummings arrives home with bottle of champagne after carrying his belongings out of Number 10 following claims he 'briefed against Boris Johnson's fiancée Carrie Symonds'

    Dominic Cummings arrived home with a bottle of champagne tonight after Boris Johnson ordered him to leave Downing Street for good. After a week of turmoil, the Prime Minister told his most senior adviser to go with immediate effect in a bid to end the toxic rows at No 10. Lee Cain, who announced his resignation as Mr Johnson's director of communications on Wednesday after Carrie Symonds thwarted his promotion to chief of staff, was also sent home. It was claimed last night that Mr Johnson had accused the pair of Vote Leave campaign veterans of briefing against his fiancée....
  • A softer, greener government or the end of Boris? Tories braced for new regime after Carrie Symonds' coup forces Dominic Cummings to quit by Christmas but MPs now fear PM 'won't last a year'

    DM ^ | 11/12/2020 | A softer, greener government or the end of Boris? Tories braced for new regime after Carrie Symonds'
    There were renewed doubts over Boris Johnson's future in No10 today as he bid to 'reset' his government after Dominic Cummings signalled he will quit - having apparently lost an extraordinary power struggle with Carrie Symonds. The maverick chief aide is set to leave Downing Street by Christmas after a brutal reckoning that saw his closest ally Lee Cain fall on his sword, having failed to secure the key role of Mr Johnson's chief of staff. The developments mark the end of the Vote Leave clique's iron grip on government, which has been the subject of a mounting backlash from...

    In the Face of Worldwide Apostasy, Bishop Robert Barron Attacks Traditional Catholics When he is not busy denying Adam was a “literal figure,” claiming there is “reasonable hope” no souls are in Hell, and assuring Ben Shapiro that Christ is merely the “priveleged route” to salvation, it seems Bishop Robert Barron likes to spend his free time attacking Traditional Catholics.In an August 3 National “Catholic” Distorter piece, author Christopher White informs us that Barron hosted an “invite-only” Zoom meeting on July 29. Was this meeting to discuss Pope Francis’ troubling July 26 tweet that, on the memorial of Saints Joachim and Anne,...

    Bishop (Barron) Hosts Establishment Journalists To Bash Rising Catholic Media Los Angeles Auxiliary Bishop Robert Barron hosted a July 29 invite-only meeting of party journalists to talk about “disturbing trends in the online Catholic world.”The meeting of those disturbed was about the rise of a “radical Traditionalist” movement, writes Christopher White on the dissenting NcrOnline.org (August 3).White previously worked for CruxNow.com which is flooded with Bishop Barron advertisement. Present on the call were America Media (Jesuits), Catholic News Agency (EWTN), Catholic News Service (US bishops), CruxNow.com (sponsored also by Barron), and Our Sunday Visitor (U.S. National Weekly Newspaper).The meeting also...

    [Barf Alert] Bishop Barron hosts invite-only meeting to discuss 'rad trads,' online vitriol Los Angeles Auxiliary Bishop Robert Barron hosted an invite-only meeting of Catholic media professionals last week to discuss "disturbing trends in the online Catholic world," including the rise of "radical Traditionalist" movements that are often marked by personal attacks and vitriolic commentary. The private meeting took place July 29 via Zoom and was confirmed to NCR by Brandon Vogt, content director for Word on Fire Catholic Ministries.  Vogt said that the meeting was initiated at his suggestion and had a threefold purpose, to discuss: A "culture of...

    Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley on Thursday apologized for accompanying President Donald Trump on his walk to St. John’s Episcopal Church earlier June. “My presence in that moment and in that environment created a perception of the military involved in domestic politics,” Milley told National Defense University graduates in a pre-recorded speech. “As a commissioned uniformed officer, it was a mistake that I have learned from, and I sincerely hope we all can learn from it.” Milley, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper, and Attorney General William Barr accompanied President Trump to Lafayette Square after protesters were cleared from...

    Suddenly, every major network converted to broadcasting from home, as every anchor fell under the watchful critiques of the Room Rater. Katy Tur’s broad smile could barely fit in the basement headquarters of Broadcasting Central for the couple, as she described being “so privileged” to be the subject of her husband's “Sunday Morning” assignment. Tur was the first to launch basement broadcasts, but the ever-alert and sprightly journalist was a pronounced presence while she was embedded with the Trump presidential campaign. Katy Tur was “the one” who called out the candidate openly and on record for seeking the Russian release...

    2020 White House hopeful Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) announced Friday that she now supports an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump over his phone call with the leader of Ukraine after affirming this week that the conversation fails to make a “compelling” case to oust the president. “Up to this point, I have been opposed to pursuing impeachment because it will further divide our already badly divided country,” Gabbard said in a statement. “However, after looking carefully at the transcript of the conversation with Ukraine’s President, the whistleblower complaint, the Inspector General memo, and President Trump’s comments about the issue,...

    MANOR TOWNSHIP, Pa. — A Lancaster County man who made a “gun-like hand gesture” at his neighbor committed a crime, according to a Pennsylvania Superior Court ruling. Stephen Kirchner, 64, of Manor Township, was charged last year with summary disorderly conduct for the gesture, according to the Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office. The gesture prompted the neighbor to call 911. (Surveillance video of the hand gesture can be seen below.) “Kirchner argued on appeal that the gesture did not cause a hazardous or physically offensive condition, that he did not intend to cause public alarm, and that there essentially was...

    The Boston Herald ^ | 07-03-2018 | Herald Staff
    We must not sink to this level. Hard-working, law-abiding Americans are witness to bad behavior and victims of cultural bullying every day. Last weekend about 20 people protesting the nation’s immigration policies were arrested in Boston. Civil unrest — however inconvenient and damaging to the general public — has been fully sanctioned by progressives and any opposition is pilloried. Each disruption benefits from politicians and media who draw fraudulent comparisons to the civil rights movement. Online Twitter mobs are “dox-ing” (releasing personal information) and intimidating private citizens who voice their opposition to open borders. On a daily basis, concerned Americans...

    As a presidential candidate, Donald Trump praised autocrats and exhibited strongman tendencies. But as president of the United States, Trump is proving to be one of the weakest, most disinterested executives in memory. He seems happy — even eager — to be both operationally and ideologically marginalized inside his own administration. This is, I think, the best way to understand the ouster of chief strategist Steve Bannon. White House staff, congressional Republicans, military leaders, and executive branch officials are increasingly confident simply ignoring President Trump. After Trump tweeted that he wanted the military to ban transgender service members from serving,...

    Just days after huge crowds of demonstrators took to the streets in cities around the world to voice their support for women's rights, Russia is set to advance legislation that would decriminalize domestic violence. The bill would remove criminal liability for assaults against family members, which were first-time offenses, caused no injury that required hospital treatment and excluded rape. Instead, such assaults would become an administrative offense, meaning they would result in fines rather than jail sentences. The legislation was introduced by ultra-conservative lawmaker Yelena Mizulina, who gained international notoriety as the architect of Russia's controversial law banning "gay propaganda".

    Ken Burns has finally emerged following Donald Trump's election victory. It took over a month for that to happen since as Burns described, he "needed some time in the fetal position." Well now that the shock is starting to wear off, an interesting phenomenon has taken place which was noted by Dilbert cartoon creator, Scott Adams: the rapid evaporation of hallucinations of Trump as Hitler previously held by Burns and others.

    Cardinal Müller has made his first comments about the four cardinals' dubia and the controversy following Pope Francis's decision not to respond. The Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith has told Kathpress that the dicastery charged with upholding the Faith of the Church would not be involved in the discussions because it acts and speaks "with the authority of the pope" and "cannot participate in the controversy of opinions." Cardinal Müller further explained that though the dubia were personally addressed to the Holy Father, Pope Francis could commission the CDF to "settle the dispute ad hoc"....

    What disturbs you? What childhood event, adolescent disappointment or even adult despair has scarred you beyond repair? Did it ever make you want to become a politician? It's a tangential question incited by Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz's appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Asked how many of the "Star Wars" movies he's seen, Cruz proudly said, "All of them." And when probed about the last movie that made him cry, he exposed his deeper innards. "As someone who grew up -- I mean, I stood in line for two hours to watch 'Empire Strikes Back,'" he said. "Han Solo was...

    MANCHESTER, New Hampshire Donald Trump on Monday night repeated the offensive term a woman attending his rally shouted in reference to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. After first calling on a woman close to the stage to "shout it out" again, Trump repeated the woman's one-word insult aimed at Cruz: "She said he's a pussy." The term was flung into the political orbit just a day before the New Hampshire primary as Trump was discussing Cruz's apparent hesitation during the last GOP debate on whether he would support waterboarding. Suddenly, Trump stopped mid-sentence, pointing to a woman near him in the...

    The woman who yelled the vulgarity that Trump repeated is a 52-year-old Salem, New Hampshire, resident named Caroline, who declined to give her last name. She told CNN that she went to the rally hoping to ask Trump a question about how he would crack down on tax fraud committed by undocumented immigrants. "He truly cares about the American people," she said. She said she did not plan to yell out a vulgarity, but when Trump mentioned Cruz, she said she couldn't help herself. "It just came out of my mouth," she said. "It wasn't like I thought about it."...

    This is the shocking moment a cop tried to shoot a family's dog and accidentally killed a mother-of-three in front of her young son. Burlington Police Officer Jesse Hill was responding to a domestic dispute on January 6, 2015, when he said he slipped and shot dead Autumn Steele, while aiming for her pet. [snip] Out of camera shot, Steele was heard to cry out. She was rushed to hospital but died of a gunshot wound to her stomach. Hill later explained that he had been attempting to shoot the German Shepherd, which he claimed had tried to bite him,...
