The US doctor who wants to save Charlie Gard has jetted into the UK and has gone straight to Great Ormond Street Hospital to examine him today. Dr Michio Hirano believes he can help the little boy with experimental nucleoside drugs and travelled to London overnight at a High Court judge´s invitation. The Harvard-educated doctor, from Columbia University Medical Centre in New York, will see Charlie today and then meet Great Ormond Street doctors on Tuesday to argue for the experimental therapy he claims has a 56 per cent of success. Two doctors, Dr Hirano and one who cannot be

I so admire this little baby´s parents. They have fought for their child and because they fought to get press attention, have thoroughly embarrassed the cold-blooded British NHS for what it is. They have been smeared by their own countrymen and papers.

Godspeed Dr. Hirano and I pray he can talk some sense and compassion into these little dictators who seem determined to insist Charlie doesn´t deserve any chance at all.

US Air Force fighter jets and B-1B Lancer bombers flew over the waters east of North Korea on Saturday. Earlier on Saturday, US and South Korean military jets carried out practice bombing raids. According to the Pentagon, the exercises demonstrated the range of military options available to US President Donald Trump. Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said, "This is the farthest north of the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) any US fighter or bomber aircraft have flown off North Korea’s coast in the 21st century, underscoring the seriousness with which we take [North Korea‘s] reckless behavior."

Puerto Rico dam on verge of collapse after

TENS of thousands of people already devastated by the destruction of Hurricane Maria are being rushed out of their homes after a dam threatens to pour downstream onto the stricken island of Puerto Rico. Emergency officials in Puerto Rico raced to evacuate almost 70,000 people away from the eastern dam on the rain-swollen Guajataca River, which will cave “very soon” under the weight of flooding in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. Disaster-struck residents of the area were being ferried to higher ground in buses, according to bulletins issued by the National Weather Service from its office in San Juan, the capital

Has Rocket Man conducted another nuclear

earthquake that China claims is an
´explosion´, hours after ´rabid dog´*

A powerful 3.4 magnitude earthquake has rocked North Korea, sparking fears the nuclear-obsessed nation may have conducted a missile test. The tremor was detected in the Kilju area in the North Hamgyong province hours after Donald Trump mocked ´madman´ Kim Jong-un and the dictator called the US President a ´rabid dog´. The earthquake was felt at 3.30am ET (8.30am GMT) at a depth of zero miles, with China´s official Xinhua News Agency saying it was a ´suspected explosion´. A tremor earlier this month was caused by Kim´s sixth nuclear test so it´s no surprise there are fears this is another.

Vladimir Putin´s hackers targeted 21 states before the 2016 presidential election, the Department of Homeland Security dramatically revealed Friday. Wisconsin, a key state in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, said on Friday it was one of the 21 states that the federal government notified were targeted by Russian government hackers but no votes were changed. Hillary Clinton lost the state in an upset which she has claimed was not her fault. The Department of Homeland Security confirmed it had notified the 21 states but declined to identify them Friday. States that told The Associated Press they had been targeted include Alabama, Colorado, Illinois, Maryland,

Americans support Obamacare over the Senate Republican Graham-Cassidy plan to repeal it by 20 percentage points, according to a new poll. People favor Obamacare over the Senate Republican bill by a vote of 56 to 33 per cent, according to a new ABC News poll. Even 23 per cent of Republicans say they´d prefer Obamacare to the latest plan Republicans came up with. Among independents, 31 per cent would prefer Obamacare. Public approval for Obamacare – which bans denial of coverage for people with preexisting conditions, set up exchanges for sale of private insurance, provided subsidies for medicaid expansion, while requiring people

Sen. John McCain almost certainly just killed TrumpCare — and gave a boost to managed-care stocks such as UnitedHealth (UNH) and Centene (CNC). The Arizona Republican declared that he couldn´t "in good conscience" vote for the Graham-Cassidy plan to repeal ObamaCare and replace it with block grants to states. John McCain?Verified account @SenJohnMcCain I cannot in good conscience vote for Graham-Cassidy. A bill impacting so many lives deserves a bipartisan approach. The news brought a sudden turnaround in managed-care stocks, though much of that was short-lived. Shares of Centene, whose fortunes are more tied to the ObamaCare exchanges and Medicaid

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced on Friday that he will vote against the latest GOP effort to repeal ObamaCare, potentially dooming the legislation. “I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal. I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried," he said in a statement, referring to the legislation spearheaded by GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C) and Bill Cassidy (La.). McCain´s announcement leaves GOP leadership with no room for error.

The Senate’s top Democrat offered praise for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) after he said he would oppose the latest ObamaCare repeal bill, which narrows the chance that Republicans can get the legislation to President Trump’s desk. “John McCain shows the same courage in Congress that he showed when he was a naval aviator,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said an hour after McCain’s statement. “I have assured Senator McCain that as soon as repeal is off the table, we Democrats are intent on resuming the bipartisan process.” McCain is the second Republican, after Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), to announce

If NFL fans continue to turn away from football, the TV networks could lose as much as $200 million in earnings, according to a new report. After ratings for Week Two crashed, adding to the angst already felt by a poor showing in Week 1, industry insiders and analysts are sounding the alarm. A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently. The worries over earnings are not allayed by

His pre-dawn raid was meant to intimidate Manafort, not just to collect evidence. Robert Mueller’s sprawling special-counsel investigation is playing hardball. It was not enough to get a search warrant to ransack the Virginia home of Paul Manafort, even as the former Trump campaign chairman was cooperating with congressional investigators. Mueller’s bad-asses persuaded a judge to give them permission to pick the door lock. That way, they could break into the premises in the wee hours, while Manafort and his wife were in bed sleeping. They proceeded to secure the premises — of a man they are reportedly investigating for tax and financial crimes, not gang murders and Mafia hits — by drawing their guns on the stunned couple, apparently to check their pajamas for weapons. Mueller’s probe more resembles an empire, with 17 prosecutors retained on the public dime. So . . .
