UK: The parents of an 11-month old baby facing imminent death from a rare neurological disease raised over a million dollars to seek treatment in the US. The British socialized health-care system, however, forbids it and says it will shut down the child’s life-support so he may “die with dignity”, in accordance with the UN Convention on Children’s Rights, which replaces parental authority in such matters with government authority. The hospital’s statement says: “A world where only parents speak and decide for children … is far from the world in which [this hospital] treats its child patients.” –GEG
Why is a hospital fighting so hard to block parents with a child dying from a rare condition from getting experimental medical treatment another hospital is offering for free?
Would it damage the reputation of the hospital “revered as one of the world’s best children’s hospitals” if another hospital succeeded where they failed?
Perhaps. But in arguing to kill the baby rather than allowing someone else to treat him, they said “a world where ONLY PARENTS SPEAK & DECIDE FOR CHILDREN and where children have NO SEPARATE IDENTITY or rights and no court to hear & protect them is far from the world in which [this hospital] treats its child patients.”
They may be trying to protect their reputation, but they were appealing to the court and reminding it that it is subject to the UNCCR, the United Nations Convention on Child Rights.
California declared itself a ‘sanctuary state’ that protects illegal aliens from deportation. The federal government reportedly is planning immigration ‘sweeps’, targeting San Francisco where Kate Steinle was killed by an illegal alien. California’s Attorney General Xavier Becerra warned that employers will be prosecuted if they assist federal immigration agents. […]
The Truth-Factory cat suspects a hidden agenda behind the ‘accidental’ false alarm set off in Hawaii, and another one in Japan, within a week. She thinks it could have been a covert drill to test security-response systems and to gather information on how people react to the threat of a nuclear-missile attack, or it may have been a psy-op to scare people into supporting more military spending. It could have been malicious hacking of the security-alert systems by pranksters or hostile governments. As the ‘cat’ says in this analysis, you have to be dumber than toast to believe most official narratives. […]
BitConnect has closed down its lending and trading platform. Many have called it a ponzi-scheme, because people would loan the anonymously-run site money in exchange for exorbitant interest, depending on the length of the loan. BitConnect’s platform was a multi-level referral system. The site claimed it earned revenue from day-trading crypto coins. The company blamed the closure on bad press, two cease-and-desist letters from securities authorities on the basis that it lacked proper registration, and perpetual DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attacks on its servers.

A review of a classified document outlining what is described as extensive abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) was made available to all members of the House on Thursday. Those familiar with the content believe it is so explosive that it could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice and could put an end to Mueller’s investigation of Russian collusion. Representative Lee Zeldin is demanding the memo to be released to the public immediately. […]
Megan Squire created software to keep tabs on 400,000 Facebook accounts of conservatives. Squire developed the software for the hard-left with the admitted goal of getting right-wing patriots fired from their jobs and even possibly killed. Antifa has been known to assault anyone they believe to be a member of the Alt-Right. Her software is being used, not just to target racists, but to endanger those who are simply outspoken conservatives. Squire is building a database for a group that uses violence against anyone they choose to label as a “fascist” – which is anyone who opposes their agenda. […]
President Trump posted the “winners” of the 2017 Fake-News Awards on Wednesday, crashing the GOP.com website because the story was so popular. The top prize went to economist Paul Krugman of the New York Times who claimed on the day of Trump’s victory that the economy would never recover. The other Fake-News winners are equally impressive. […]
Conrado Miranda, a former senior software engineer for Twitter, says that Twitter acts in accordance with Terms-of-Service agreements with foreign governments – notably China – and routinely bans users at their request. He also revealed that China often will hack Twitter if it fails to comply with the request. […]
As many as 100 college campuses are providing places where students can report other students for ‘bias incidents’ in which they say something “offensive” on social media. [The known effect of this activity is the isolation of individuals, the creation of mistrust, the inability to form into groups capable of challenging authority, and the creation of a volunteer secret police. It’s pure collectivism.] […]
The tradition of a close-knit family has been shattered by the collectivist mindset that now dominates the British culture. Nine-million people, 14% of the population, are without regular contact with close friends or family, which makes them lonely, indeed. A study of this problem concludes it has been brought about by welfare, anti-family feminism, and public housing. The government is launching a massive program to solve this problem. [How? By more of the same that caused it, of course.] […]
Canadian professor of psychology, Dr. Jordan Peterson, while being interviewed about his defense of free speech, is asked by a TV host: “Why should your right to freedom of speech trump a trans person’s right not to be offended?” He responded: “Because in order to be able to think, you have to risk being offensive. Look at the conversation we’re having right now. You’re certainly willing to risk offending me in the pursuit of truth. Why should you have the right to do that?” The TV host was left with no response. […]
The rice exposed to affectionate human intentions became only slightly discolored with age, while the jar of rice treated with threatening intentions became filled with mold, condensation, and rot. Rice that was completely ignored responded with modest condensation and small spots of mold. Unless there is fraud in this experiment, it indicates that emotions and intent can have a much stronger impact on living things, including us and those around us, than ever imagined possible. […]
A disturbing video shows thousands (literally) of tents and shacks where homeless people are living along the Santa Ana River Trail in Orange County, an upscale area in California. More than 25% of the nation’s homeless population now lives in California. Most sleep on the streets, under bridges, and tucked away in fields and parks. This video will haunt you. […]

Ten Days at Jekyll Island, a novel by Patrea Patrick, tells the true story of a secret meeting held in November of 1910 on a privately owned resort island, the outcome of which drastically changed the world. It was at this meeting that a banking cartel was forged; a cartel that, three years later, would be issued a government charter to do business as The United States Federal Reserve System. You will discover why secrecy was essential. Based on historical documentation from The Creature from Jekyll Island by G. Edward Griffin. (More)
Offline is a documentary on the inevitability of the Earth being slammed by a mega solar flare – not the common type that interrupts communications and creates a light show in the Northern skies – but the big brothers thousands of times more powerful. These monsters deliver enough energy to blow apart the master transformers that supply the planet’s energy grids. When that happens, the lights go out for longer than anyone wants to think about. These X-Class solar storms hit the Earth every 150 years, on average. The last one arrived 156 years ago. We are overdue (More)
