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.
A Donald Trump supporter punched a protester in the face after he hit him with a placard during a rally in Hollywood over the weekend. Violence led to two arrests at protests in Hollywood, California, on Saturday as anti-Trump protesters and supporters of the president held rallies in the same location. Shocking footage shows the moment one Trump supporter floored a demonstrator after he was hit in the face by the man´s large sign. It came after the two men had a confrontation, in which both could be heard shouting ´f*** you´ as several onlookers watched. Several protesters broke up the fight after
The Washington political establishment was united in its support for Arizona Senator John McCain just after news broke Wednesday that the 80-year-old former war hero was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer. President Donald Trump tweeted a statement Wednesday wishing McCain well. ´Melania and I send our thoughts and prayers to Senator McCain, Cindy, and their entire family,´ the president tweeted. ´Get well soon.´ In an earlier statement released by the White House, Trump said: ´Senator John McCain has always been a fighter. ´Melania and I send our thoughts and prayers to Senator McCain, Cindy, and their entire
BRITISH officials will jet to the US next week to lay the ground for a post-Brexit trade deal, in a major boost for Theresa May. US and UK officials will meet in Washington on July 24 and 25 to “prepare ground” for a future trade deal. It will be the first meeting of the US-UK trade and investment working group, with “commercial continuity” also on the agenda. The meeting was confirmed by a US official, who said Theresa May’s International Trade Secretary Liam Fox and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer will be present. The official, who asked to remain unnamed, said: “The early
President Donald Trump pledged that the ´full truth will be known´ about America´s election systems ´and ´exposed if necessary in the light of day´ at a meeting of his voter fraud commission on Wednesday. Trump said in a surprise appearance before the commission that he authorized a national review of the nation´s ballot boxes in response to allegations of fraud, ´sometimes having to do with very large numbers of people in certain states,´ that supporters came to him with during his Oval Office campaign. The president said that more than 30 states have agreed to turn over their voter data to the
Rosie O´Donnell has been one of President Trump´s most vocal and outspoken critics since long before he even announced he was running for office, but her latest attack on her longtime foe went too far according to some. Over the weekend, the former talk show host posted a link to a new game that allows users to kill President Trump four different ways: pushing him off a cliff; pushing him into a volcano; pushing him into a manhole; and pushing him into the mouth of a Tyrannosaurus Rex. The games is called ´Push Trump Off A Cliff,´ and in addition
As secretary of State, Hillary Clinton was also anti the Magnitsky Act, the policy that Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya lobbied against during her meeting with Donald Trump Jr and other campaign aides at Trump Tower. And as a presidential candidate, Clinton tried to make sure her early position on these sanctions weren´t connected with a speech her husband gave in Moscow in 2010, according to Fox News, which earned ex-President Bill Clinton $500,000. ´With the help of the research team, we killed a Bloomberg story trying to link HRC´s opposition to the Magnitsky bill [to] a $500,000 speech that WJC
A retired chief of the Australian Defence Force has claimed Australia will soon be invaded, warning of the increasing tensions in the Asia-Pacific region. Admiral Chris Barrie has said the conflict happening now is similar to the conditions that led to World War 1. ´Australia is plunging headlong into catastrophe and we are utterly unprepared,´ he said in an analysis published by ABC News. ´The time-bomb is ticking and it will explode in our lifetimes.´ The parallels with First World War - Britain the dominant power, Germany the rising and aggressive challenger - are obvious. So too today with the United States and China.
WASHINGTON — President Trump said on Wednesday that he never would have appointed Attorney General Jeff Sessions had he known Mr. Sessions would recuse himself from overseeing the Russia investigation that has dogged his presidency, calling the decision “very unfair to the president.” In a remarkable public break with one of his earliest political supporters, Mr. Trump complained that Mr. Sessions’s decision ultimately led to the appointment of a special counsel that should not have happened. “Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and
The Minnesota cop who shot and killed an Australian bride-to-be opened fire on her after being startled by a “loud sound” near his patrol car, investigators say. Officer Mohamed Noor, 31, began blasting at 40-year-old Justine Damond, of Minneapolis, just moments after he and his partner, Matthew Harrity, heard the noise in the alley behind her house, according to the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. The agency provided an update Tuesday on their investigation into the Saturday night shooting. Officers Noor and Harrity had been called to Damond’s home after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault happening
Heading to church one evening in late March, a farmworker and her sister were stopped for speeding in the village of Geneseo, N.Y. They were driving with their five children in the back of the minivan. Two were not in car seats, as required. The police officer, trying to cite the driver for the infractions, discovered she had no driver’s license, so he called Border Patrol to review her Guatemalan passport. Both sisters were undocumented immigrants. They were detained and are facing deportation. Under a Trump administration that has taken an aggressive stance on illegal immigration, the moving car has
The Humiliation Of Jeff Sessions- There is something more than a little jarring in the ongoing humiliation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. In an ill-timed, ill-focused interview with the NYT, President Trump revisited his disdain for Sessions, his first, most-ardent and most-loyal supporter in the Senate. When supporting Trump was still considered career suicide, Sessions donned the red cap anyway. Maybe it will prove fatal for Sessions’ career, after all. The president has not made a secret of the fact that he blames Sessions for the scandal that now engulfs the Trump administration, claiming in
President Trump sat down with Russian President Vladimir Putin for a second discussion at the G-20 summit in Germany this month — a talk the White House never disclosed, according to reports. The talk came hours after their two-hour bilateral meeting on July 7, towards the end of a “couples-only social dinner” at the summit, National Security Council spokesman Michael Anton told CNN. Trump and Putin conversed in the room where the dinner was being held. “No staff or Cabinet were at the dinner at all, for any of the countries,” Anton said, adding that translators were present. The White
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) has been diagnosed with brain cancer, the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix said Wednesday. The tumor was discovered after the senior Arizona senator underwent a minor procedure last week to remove a blood clot from above his left eye. "Subsequent tissue pathology revealed that a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma was associated with the blood clot," the hospital said in a statement. “The Senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options with his Mayo Clinic care team. Treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation."
The U.S. special counsel investigating possible ties between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia in last year’s election is examining a broad range of transactions involving Trump’s businesses as well as those of his associates, according to a person familiar with the probe. The president told the New York Times on Wednesday that any digging into matters beyond Russia would be out of bounds. Trump’s businesses have involved Russians for years, making the boundaries fuzzy so Special Counsel Robert Mueller appears to be taking a wide-angle approach to his two-month-old probe. FBI investigators and others are looking at Russian purchases of apartments
