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.
The mother of Huma Abedin advised a Hillary Clinton aide preparing for a 2010 speech, urging that the secretary of state´s remarks avoid sensitive issues like a ban on driving by women in Saudi Arabia. The aide, Chase Button, reached out to longtime Clinton aide Abedin for advice in advance of Clinton´s trip to Jeddah to speak to a women´s college. ´Talk to my mom for sure,´ Abedin, a top Clinton aide, advised speechwriter Case Button on Feb. 12, 2010 after he broached the idea. ´She will have good points for you.´ Her response included a long list of controversial topics not to
(WCSC) - More than 14,000 people remain without power after Tropical Storm Irma pounded the Lowcountry Monday. Early Monday morning, the majority of power outages ahead of Irma were being reported in Beaufort County, one of three counties in the state expected to see some of the biggest impacts from the storm. By late Monday afternoon, more than 125,000 were without power. Charleston County had the most power outages, followed by Beaufort, Lexington, Richland and Aiken Counties. Gov. Henry McMaster said on Monday that the number of outages statewide as of 2 p.m. totaled more than 146,000. Elsewhere, utility officials
Eight Fort Bragg soldiers were injured during a training accident on post today. A spokesman for U.S. Army Special Operations Command said officials do not know the extent of the injuries. He also could not say what may have caused the injuries. “There was an incident that occurred on one of the ranges,” Lt. Col. Rob Bockholt said. “We’re looking into exactly what happened.” The injured soldiers belong to a unit under USASOC’s command, Bockholt said. He said USASOC is investigating the incident.
Hillary Clinton trolled President Trump with a reply to his tweet, recommending he read another one of her books if he doesn´t like her newest tome on the 2016 campaign, What Happened. ´If you didn´t like that book, try this one — some good lessons in here about working together to solve problems. Happy to send a copy,´ she wrote, including a picture of It Takes a Village, the children´s book she wrote in 1996 while serving as first lady. President Trump brought back an oldie but goodie, again labeling Clinton ´crooked Hillary´ last night, as he panned her election loss by
The last survivor of the legendary ´Great Escape´ mission has celebrated his 100th birthday at a party organised by the RAF. Jack Lyon, a Flight Lieutenant in the RAF during the Second World War, was shot down over enemy territory and imprisoned at Stalag Luft III, at Sagan, south-east Germany, at the time of the escape. Mr Lyon kept surveillance on the camp´s Luftwaffe guards during construction of escape tunnels and was waiting to make his getaway in the early hours of March 25, 1944 when the daring mission was discovered. A total of 76 men were able to get out of
NAPLES, Fla. - Hurricane Irma’s leading edge bent palm trees and spit rain as it swirled toward Florida with 120 mph winds Saturday on a projected new track that could expose Tampa — not Miami — to the storm’s worst fury.

A perfect storm of climatic conditions turned Hurricane Irma into the monster that is currently wreaking havoc on the Caribbean and headed for the US mainland. Unusually warm ocean water in the Atlantic, high atmospheric pressure and weak wind shear have combined to fuel the category five tropical cyclone. Wind speeds of 250 kph were recorded as it hit land in Barbuda yesterday morning, before instruments broke. With ocean winds reaching sustained speeds of 183 mph (295 kph), this makes Irma the strongest storm to ever form over the Atlantic. For Irma to not only gain its strength but subsequently
Hurricane Irma — with its ferocious 185 mph winds — made landfall in the Caribbean early Wednesday, slamming into Barbuda and Antigua as it headed for Puerto Rico. Cuba and South Florida were still in Irma’s projected path into the weekend. The catastrophic Category 5 storm, the most powerful Atlantic storm on record, is expected to bring strong storm surges and up to 20 inches of rain in some places. Irma is moving west-northwest at 16 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center’s advisory at 5 a.m. Wednesday, with the track shifting slightly to the east. The Bahamas government has issued a hurricane warning

A Royal Navy rigid-hulled inflatable boat chased off a Spanish Guardia Civil boat in UK waters off Gibraltar. It did so after the Spanish patrol boat Rio Belelle cut across USNS Carson City as it entered Gibraltar this morning. Gibraltar Coast Watchers founder Michael J Sanchez said: ´Nothing better to ruffle Spain´s feathers that a visit of a U.S. Navy ship to Gibraltar...very irresponsible and reckless move by the Spanish vessel.´ MailOnline have contacted the Foreign & Commonwealth Office for a comment. USNS Carson City is the seventh Spearhead-class expeditionary fast transport, currently in service with the Military Sealift Command. It was launched
We were talking about the crisis in Tel Aviv, where thousands of infiltrators have taken over parts of the town, when my friend said it’s just as bad here in the United States, except that these invaders were brought here legally. “There’s more than one Linda Sarsour,” he said. “Thousands. Maybe millions.” For him – and for many others – it’s personal. Marv has two kids going back to college in a few weeks and he fears for their safety. “In my day,” he said, “the college years were the best of times.” Not so in our day. His two kids aren’t saying
President Donald Trump finally got some face time with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell after the two men hadn´t spoken for weeks. Trump hosted McConnell and other leaders of a group known as the ´big six´ to discuss tax reform. If was the first time the two men had spoken since an angry phone call where Trump reportedly complained about the Russia investigation, following McConnell´s comments to his constituents that Trump was still learning about the pace of the Democratic process. McConnell was seated at Trump´s left during the meeting, with House Speaker Paul Ryan on his right. During a June meeting, it was
Hillary Clinton told CNN on Wednesday that it is time to abolish the Electoral College, part of a sweeping interview where the former Democratic nominee sought to explain why she lost the 2016 election. Clinton, in the interview with CNN´s Anderson Cooper, displayed her animus for fired FBI Director James Comey, reflected on her love for the people -- namely former President Bill Clinton -- who helped her get through the crushing loss and blasted the arcane election body that she believes helped Donald Trump win the presidency. "I think it needs to be eliminated," Clinton said of the Electoral
President Donald Trump on Thursday squashed earlier reports that he agreed to protect so-called “Dreamers” during a dinner meeting with two top Democrats, and said “massive border security would have to be agreed to in exchange for consent.” Trump’s Twitter post was in response to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who said in a statement that Trump agreed to protect Dreamers and agreed to terms on border security -- "excluding the wall." Trump tweeted, "The WALL, which is already under construction in the form of new renovation of old and
Melania Trump appears to have sworn off the high heels that got her labeled out of touch and disrespectful when she donned them to visit hurricane victims. The first lady, 47, wore black and beige Chanel flats as she flew from Washington, DC to Fort Myers, Florida with her husband this morning to meet with citizens impacted by Hurricane Irma. Last month, she caused an uproar when she donned high heels while to visit areas struck by Hurricane Harvey in Texas—but wore similar shoes on a follow-up trip to the disaster-struck state earlier this month.

Bill Clinton defended Hillary Clinton´s new book What Happened saying that those who did read it have enjoyed it. "They don´t have to buy it," Clinton told TIME while addressing those who have criticized Clinton´s new book. "The people that have read it liked it," he added. What Happened chronicles Clinton´s loss in the 2016 presidential election. The book is already at the top of Amazon´s best-seller list, though there are some bad reviews.
Hillary Clinton’s “What Happened” reads like a therapy session in which the losing presidential candidate works through the five stages of grief in real time. There’s plenty of anger, oodles of denial, bouts of depression, some desperate bargaining and finally a modicum of acceptance. But not before she’s thrown everyone from President Obama to Bernie Sanders under the bus for her loss to Donald Trump. Among her many laments? “I don’t think the press did their job,” as she tells Vox’s Ezra Klein. Expanding on that, she told him the press obsessed over Trump because she was talking policy while he was “good
Facing harsh criticism, a Harvard dean said early Friday morning that he was revoking his invitation to Chelsea Manning, a former United States soldier convicted of leaking classified information, to be a visiting fellow at the university. The sudden turnabout by the Harvard Kennedy School came after a day of intense backlash over the university’s announcement on Wednesday that Ms. Manning would become a visiting fellow at the Institute of Politics this school year. Douglas W. Elmendorf, the dean of the Harvard Kennedy School, said that while the university encourages a diversity of opinions and does not shy from controversy,
After months of denials, the pretext for Susan Rice’s eavesdropping on Trump officials has finally been made public. It had been widely known that Obama’s former National Security Adviser had contrived to unmask the names of top Trump officials who had been spied on by the administration. And the same media that still treats Watergate as the Great American Scandal had claimed that there was nothing “improper” in an Obama loyalist eavesdropping on members of the opposition party. Every time Obama Inc. was caught eavesdropping on opposition politicians, it presented its spin in a carefully packaged “scoop” to a major media
Meghan McCain, the political scion who turned a stint as a blogger and TV show host into a role as a contributor at Fox News Channel, is leaving the network.

Failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton demonstrated on Wednesday one of the ways she dealt with her shocking loss to President Trump in the aftermath of the 2016 election while promoting her new campaign memoir. "Seems like you´ve been doing a lot of yoga?" CNN´s Anderson Cooper asked during an interview organized as part of Clinton´s What Happened book tour. "Yes, I have," Clinton responded. "And alternate nostril breathing." Cooper then asked Clinton to show him what the coping mechanism entailed. "I would highly recommend it," Clinton started. "You are supposed to shut your eyes -- I don´t want to

The White House hailed a "constructive working dinner" Wednesday night between President Trump and top Democratic congressional leaders, who claimed afterward they agreed to exclude the border wall from a deal on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Trump and administration officials met with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., the latest in a series of overtures from the president to the other side of the aisle. A White House official told reporters afterward the "topics included tax reform, border security, DACA, infrastructure and trade." But Pelosi and Schumer focused on DACA,
New York - ESPN says it has accepted the apology of its "SportsCenter" host Jemele Hill for tweeting this week that President Donald Trump was a "white supremacist" and "bigot." The network and Hill delivered statements shortly before midnight, hours after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Wednesday called Hill´s comments outrageous and something that could be considered a fireable offense by ESPN.
