Firefighters shed tears today during a minute´s silence for the victims of the Grenfell Tower blaze, as the official death toll was raised to 79. Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy said today that five people had been formally identified and the rest were ´sadly´ missing presumed dead. Mr Cundy said the death toll may still change, but not as significantly as it has in recent days. The announcement came ahead of a minute´s silence around the country at 11am to remember those who lost their lives in the fire in north Kensington last week. Mr Cundy told reporters the ´awful reality´ was that

There is something that I find extremely unusual in the coverage of this tragedy. I think we´ll be hearing about the religion of peace playing a critical part. Just a hunch.

This horrific fire lays bare the danger to citizens when they depend on the government for where they live, what they eat, what they wear, and what they think. This same incompetent and negligent government cannot even identify the victims in a timely manner for the families. It appears the building was mostly Muslim immigrants. I doubt they have much personal documentation such as dental records. But then, due to government healthcare, dental records in England may not have the accuracy of those here in the U.S.

Scores of people were killed by greed and incompetence, and the same keeps families waiting and unable to complete the normal business required after a death. This tragedy grows in proportion every day.

The firemen appear to be badly grief stricken. It must be grisly work to find the bodies that are so burned they cannot be ID´d.

Everyone should read Mark Steyn´s brilliant essay, "The Great Fire of the New London." Then read it again.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Thursday that federal prosecutors have charged more than 400 people in taking part in medical fraud and opioid scams that totaled $1.3 billion in fraudulent billing. Sessions said that 412 individuals will be prosecuted by his office in what he called the ´largest health care fraud takedown operation in American history´ during a press conference in Washington. Sessions noted that the case involves doctors, nurses and pharmacists that ´have chosen to violate their oaths and put greed ahead of their patients.´ Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Thursday that federal prosecutors have charged more than 400

President Trump pointed a finger at President Obama´s Attorney General Loretta Lynch for allowing the Russian attorney into the country that his son and campaign aides met with. ´Somebody said that her visa or her passport to come into the country was approved by Attorney General Lynch,´ Trump floated at a joint press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday. ´Now maybe that´s wrong, but I just heard that a little while ago. I was surprised to hear that.´ ´So she was here because of Lynch,´ Trump repeated, trying to kick the problem to the previous administration. Trump was likely referring to

The parents of terminally-ill baby Charlie Gard have walked out of a High Court hearing to decide if he should undergo treatment. Charlie´s father Chris Gard stood up and said: "I thought this was supposed to be independent," as the couple left the courtroom about two hours into today´s hearing. Mr Gard and his partner Connie Yates are arguing they should be allowed to take give experimental treatment to their 11-month-old for a severe degenerative genetic disorder.

Presidents Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron of France found themselves enjoying each other´s company on Thursday in Paris, despite a disagreement on the environment that had been souring their relationship. They laughed and talked like old pals during a bilateral meeting that preceded a joint news conference. Donald Trump had earlier given a lingering embrace to France´s first lady Brigitte Macron as she and her husband welcomed he and Melania in Paris on the eve of Bastille Day. The president greeted his foreign counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, with a handshake that was firm but was without any sign of the now-notorious power grip

Russian President Vladimir Putin is fond of oligarch Aras Agalarov because the real estate magnate ´brings him solutions, not problems,´ according to a veteran Western diplomat in Moscow. Speaking to DailyMail.com, the diplomat revealed the video bootlegger turned-billionaire seems to be the Russian leader´s right-hand man when it comes to carrying out development projects and serving as the liaison between him and Trump. On Tuesday, Donald Trump Jr´s bombshell email revealed that Agalarov was alleged to be the insider who wanted to pass ´incriminating´ Kremlin information about Hillary Clinton to his father´s campaign. Initially outside the Kremlin leader´s charmed circle, Agalarov has delivered

At this point we don’t care. Even if you caught Donald Trump red-handed colluding with the Russians we’d say, so what? Who cares? Move on. You’ve lost our trust. We won’t believe you even if by accident you may stumble on something new or true. You are like the village idiot who runs around town yelling that the sky is falling. Every Trump headline runs like that, and over the past week it’s been Trump Jr. who’s prompted your hysteria. That’s all America is talking about, at least through the media; an alarm which you sounded. What did he do?

I want to make a prediction: The next successful Republican politician will rally the Right by making America’s universities his punching bag — and said universities will prove even more vulnerable to that politician’s attacks than the media were to Donald Trump’s. A new study from the Pew Research Center shows that Republican opinion of the nation’s higher-education system has deteriorated remarkably in a very short time. In 2015, 58 percent of Republicans thought that colleges and universities had a positive effect on the country; an only slightly larger share of Democrats, 65 percent, agreed. Just two years later, the

The Trump administration´s limit of 50,000 refugees has already been reached for this budget year. Additional refugees may still enter the United States in the next few months but they will now face tighter regulations. A Supreme Court order last month said the administration must admit refugees beyond the 50,000 cap if they can prove a ´bona fide relationship´ with a person or entity in the United States. That was part of a broader ruling that allowed President Donald Trump to partially administer his contested travel ban affecting six Muslim majority countries. As of Wednesday, 50,086 refugees have been admitted

Video of a German town meeting in which the new German reality dawns on desperate citizens has been revealed by conservative commentator Amy Mek via social media. In it, one may discern the watershed moment when the bureaucratic leadership breaks news to the incensed constituency that the familiar concepts of German sovereignty, borders, and culture no longer form the stabilizing center of government priority that had kept them safe in the past. From the video it is apparent that until this town meeting, the citizens in it still believed, perhaps logically, that their government exists to protect them, their loved

Fox News may have cut ties with its disgraced former CEO Roger Ailes amid a maelstrom of sexual harassment allegations. But the late media mogul never turned his back on his closest aides, rewarding their loyalty with a series of massive cash payments in a will created months after his ouster. Documents obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com show Ailes left the vast majority of his reported $100 million fortune in a trust for his wife Elizabeth Tilson and 17-year-old son Zachary. But the 77-year-old, who died May 18 after a fall at his Palm Beach, Florida mansion, also left behind a $1.78 million fund

DONALD Trump could face impeachment after a Democrat representative filed the first official papers calling for the President to be thrown out of office. Representative Brad Sherman claims the firing of former FBI Director James Comey amounts to obstruction of justice. And he believes that doing so while Mr Comey was investigating Russian meddling into the US election strengthens his case. He also highlights the recent news regarding the President’s son Donald Trump Jr, who is accused of meeting with a Russia lawyer over supposedly damaging information about his father’s rival Hillary Clinton.

It’s the sort of brazen move that might ordinarily trigger a front-page news story or an outraged editorial — a bunch of rich individuals asking Congress to write them a law that would give them better negotiating power against other rich individuals. Yet in this case, the rich individuals wanting special treatment are the newspaper owners themselves. Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos (worth $83.9 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaire’s Index), New York Times owner Carlos Slim (worth $61.1 billion), and Buffalo News owner Warren Buffett ($76.9 billion), publicly pleading poverty, are asking Congress for a helping hand in their

A Seattle, Wash., councilman implied that a new effort to clean excrement off the side walk outside the local courthouse could be racist Tuesday. The crime and smell of urine and excrement have gotten so bad outside a King County courthouse that two judges are scrambling to find ways to fix the situation, reports the Seattle Times. Seattle councilmember Larry Gossett isn’t a fan of one solution to power wash the feces from the sidewalks to tamp down on the smell. Power washing the sidewalks is too reminiscent of civil rights activists being hosed down, he said. The area around the courthouse is

Hillary Clinton is encouraging people to support Planned Parenthood by buying TBS host Samantha Bee´s T-shirts. The shirts feature the words ´Nasty Woman´ - a reference to the jibe President Trump made at Clinton during a 2016 presidential debate. The phrase was quickly seized by feminists and Hillary supporters in the run up to the election. The former Secretary of State showed her support for Bee and her cause on Tuesday, tweeting a picture of smiling photo of herself holding up the shirt, with the caption: ´Support Samantha Bee & Planned Parenthood & buy a Nasty Woman t-shirt.´ Clinton also posted a

This is oddly interesting. ( h/t GWP ) At the heart of the current media Russian narrative du jour is a story about Donald Trump Jr. meeting with a Russian attorney named Natalia Veselnitskaya. That meeting took place on June 9th 2016 in Trump Tower. Now it is discovered via video and images, that only 5 days later, June 14th 2016, Ms. Veselnitskava was a guest of former Obama administration Russian Ambassador Michael McFaul in Washington DC for a House of Representatives hearing on U.S. Policy Toward Putin’s Russia.

George Stephanopoulos may be a giant in the news business, but “Good Morning America” has changed its set to cover up his diminutive size. “He’s 5-foot-6 and is dwarfed by human trees Robin Roberts and Michael Strahan,” says an insider. “ ‘GMA’ initially thought using an anchor desk with elevated chairs would help the problem. Still awkward, George’s little-boyish mini-legs were seen dangling.” (Photo) So a month ago, a silver panel was added across from the anchor desk at midlevel, covering up where Stephanopoulos’ feet rested on his chair, which up to then had been “visible and awkward.” Reportedly, Stephanopoulos

Democrats seem incapable of processing the memo that the nation is not on the same page as they are on a range of issues. And, no matter how many times the American public attempts to alert Democrats that their leftward trajectory is of no interest, Democrats just keep doubling down. The Party continues to elevate its fringe members like Maxine Waters and Elizabeth Warren while supposedly more "mainstream" establishment members boil over with rage and hysteria over President Trump´s every single move. Case in point: Sen. Dick Durbin claimed Wednesday Muslims in Americans feel no different that Japanese Americans did during

The entire Fort Lauderdale Police Department should undergo extra training on how to properly treat transgender people, a city panel has decided. The suggestion came Monday during a Citizens Police Review Board hearing for a police officer who categorized a transgender woman as male on a citation. The board, which serves as a watchdog group over police, also decided the officer should receive a written reprimand for the incident. “I think it’s fair,” said board member Marc Dickerson. “It’s a matter of training and the officers need training.” Officer James Brinton faced a complaint from Shelby Kendall after he pulled

Over the past generation, members of the college-educated class have become amazingly good at making sure their children retain their privileged status. They have also become devastatingly good at making sure the children of other classes have limited chances to join their ranks. How they’ve managed to do the first task — giving their own children a leg up — is pretty obvious. It’s the pediacracy, stupid. Over the past few decades, upper-middle-class Americans have embraced behavior codes that put cultivating successful children at the center of life. As soon as they get money, they turn it into investments in
