This is the elite band of brothers, including Prince Harry, that were sent on a top secret mission to take on the Taliban in one of the most dangerous areas of Afghanistan. Last week, The Mail on Sunday revealed how one of the courageous soldiers pictured here, Warrant Officer Nathan Hunt, is believed to have tragically killed himself after struggling to cope with the effects of battlefield trauma. Since then two more members of Harry’s desert reconnaissance unit have come forward to say they too have suffered serious mental health issues as a direct result of their harrowing experiences in the war

Many of us mock him for being just a bit feckless, but until the idiots in the media outed him, he was serving with distinction in some of the most dangerous areas of Afghanistan.

IIRC, his unit was responsible for dealing with some of the worst terrorists over there too. Having the target put on him by the media made him a high value target. Sorry that his military career had to end.

But far as I am concerned, with the exception of his uncle Andrew who was in the Falklands conflict, he is the only one of the royals who has any real skin in the game.

#1 True but the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Phillip, served with distinction in WWII. Phillip is a far more interesting man than most people know and his mother, Princess Alice, was one the most fascinating, in my book, of the 20th century.

I´m not as fond of Harry as I used to be. His snub of our President not being invited to the Royal wedding is a bit much to take. Is this what we are to expect from Harry and his bride?
Pity.

White House staff planning to assist President Donald Trump in his delayed ´Fake News Awards´ may risk running afoul of ethics laws, according to ethics experts. President Trump has repeatedly touted the awards, scheduled for January 17, after some delays, hyping the otherwise unexplained event on his Twitter account. As president, he is free to engage in uninhibited political activity – but the same may not hold true for aides working on the government dime. ´WARNING to White House staff: the president may be exempt from the rules ... on misuse of position BUT YOU ARE NOT,´ wrote Obama ethics czar Norm Eisen,

Somebody needs to tell Mahmoud Abbas that the jig is up, the game is over. Wait. My mistake. President Trump did that already but Abbas still fails to get the message. Ditto the Democrats who can’t get it through their thick skulls that they lost, Trump won. He won even as Liberals try every Dirty Trick to unseat him from one false charge to another; last month’s Russia collusion, last week’s mental unfitness, and today’s accusation that he’s a racist. Trump is no racist, quite the opposite if the Mar-a-Lago story ever gets told…which we’ll do in a moment. Nor can Liberals, from

President Trump seemed delighted to crash a women´s event held on the White House campus Tuesday, which was also attended by his daughter Ivanka Trump and top aide Kellyanne Conway. ´I really appreciate you all being here, it´s an honor,´ said the president during brief remarks at the Conversations with Women in America event, which wasn´t on Trump´s official schedule. ´Again, when I heard I ran across the street and ... now I´m going to run back to the Oval Office.´ Trump used the opportunity to tout the economic gains women have made during his almost one-year tenure.

Four law enforcement officers were shot and wounded while responding to a domestic call in South Carolina overnight. Police were called to a home on Farrier Lane around 10:10 pm Monday night, for a report of a domestic violence incident. Suspect Christian Thomas McCall, 47, was reportedly assaulting a female, but by the time officers arrived on the scene, he had fled on foot. Several law enforcement agencies then banded together to search for McCall. At 1:07am, shots rang out and a York police officer was found injured. He was driven to the Piedmont Medical Center in Rock Hill in another officer´s car.

Thousands of people put at risk by a volcanic eruption in Papua New Guinea have been evacuated by the authorities. Eruptions on Kadovar Island in the East Sepik region of the South Pacific island led to Prime Minister Peter O´Neill orchestrating the evacuation. It is feared further eruptions might occur in the nation´s north, the government said on Monday. Mr O´Neill also warned northern coastal communities to be alert for possible tsunamis resulting from volcanic activity. ´Volcanoes are very unpredictable. We are hearing various reports that activity has been building up and we need to take all precautions to keep

This is the shocking moment a massive brawl broke out in a California pizza restaurant over a missing iPhone that turned out to have been in the lost and found the whole time. Police were called to John´s Incredible Pizza Company in Newark´s NewPark Mall on Saturday night after violence erupted. It broke out after a girl missing her phone had approached a group to see if they´d seen it but quickly descended into chaos, with video showing two large groups of people exchanging blows and screaming at each other.

RAF Typhoon fighter jets have been scrambled to intercept Russian planes as they approached UK airspace this morning - the latest in a series of provocations by Moscow. Royal Air Force Typhoons took off from the Lossiemouth airbase, north east Scotland, just before 9.30am. A spokesman said: “We can confirm that quick reaction alert Typhoon aircraft from RAF Lossiemouth scrambled this morning, this is a live operation and therefore we will not be providing any additional information until the mission is complete.” The operation is currently "ongoing" and the type of Russian plane has not yet been confirmed.

President Donald Trump has denied he is a racist in response to controversy over his recent remarks. ´I´m not a racist. I´m the least racist person you have ever interviewed. That I can tell you,´ he told reporters in Florida on Sunday, as he was on his way to dinner with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. It marks the president´s first direct response to accusations of racism that have dogged him since he allegedly asked ´Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?´ in an Oval Office meeting about immigration earlier this week.

VANCOUVER - Foreign ministers from around 20 nations gather on Tuesday to discuss how to curb North Korea’s nuclear ambitions through diplomatic and financial pressure, but China, seen as a key player in any long-term solution, will be absent. The Vancouver meeting, co-hosted by Canada and the United States, comes amid signs that tensions on the peninsula have eased, at least temporarily. North and South Korea held talks for the first time in two years last week and Pyongyang says it will send athletes across the border to the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. But the United States and others say the international

Did Trump misspeak…use a slur to make a point…and thereby arouse all those dainty Liberals into a snit? Not far from where I’m writing this, the kosher butcher shop is long gone; across the street, the church that once stood tall is now boarded up. But next to it stands a mosque newly built and freshly painted. English in the neighborhood is a foreign tongue and nobody knows Frank Sinatra. The boys don’t play stickball. The girls in their veils don’t play hopscotch and all the cabs are driven by men from Somalia and Afghanistan. Strangers are not greeted warmly. That’s a snapshot of what

NBC plans to televise any players who refuse to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl, but there may be nothing to show. It appears that NFL players are no longer taking a knee during the national anthem, namely because none of the teams with still-active protesters has qualified for the postseason. By the end of the regular season, only five teams featured at least one player regularly sitting or kneeling on the sidelines for the anthem: the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, the Miami Dolphins, the New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders. None of those franchises made the

Mitt Romney took a swipe at Donald Trump on Monday, condemning the crude comments the president was said to have made about Haiti and African countries -- calling them “inconsistent (with) America’s history and antithetical to American values” with a reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race,” Romney tweeted. “The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & ‘charity for all.’”

This Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the NAACP wants man-made global warming to be seen as a civil rights issue, arguing King’s vision of a society free of racial injustice can’t be achieved without addressing warming. “We see climate change as a civil rights issue,” Jacqueline Patterson, head of the NAACP’s environmental and climate justice program, said in an online radio spot for the Yale Center for Environmental Connection. Environmental activists have been increasingly framing global warming as a matter of “environmental justice,” since “minority and low-income populations are disproportionately affected by global warming,” Patterson told Yale’s online radio Climate

Ever since Donald Trump entered the political arena, his intelligence has been viciously attacked and his supporters have been labeled as moronic deplorables. In a recent Trump tweet, the president responded to the most recent attack by saying he is a stable genius. The mainstream media never bothered checking evidence of Obama´s intelligence before one historian declared him "the smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency", even though his academic records were sealed. What these attacks do prove is who the real brains are and who are the dummies: Alan Dershowitz may be for real

A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up

From his perch in the Ohio governor’s mansion, Republican John Kasich is keeping a keen eye on President Trump’s every move and showing a willingness — some say eagerness — to hurl rotten tomatoes toward the leader of his party when he gets upset with the act.He has become a go-to anti-Trump source for the media and often doesn’t even wait for the press to call. Instead, he leaps in to pile on after presidential missteps.While insisting he wants Mr. Trump to succeed, Mr. Kasich has pointedly refused to rule out mounting a primary challenge against the president in 2020.

TRENTON, N.J. — Days before his inauguration as New Jersey’s 56th governor, Phil Murphy had Hollywood on his mind. The 60-year old Democrat had just read a headline about reshoots on “All the Money in the World,” which had been done in a hurry to remove disgraced actor Kevin Spacey from the movie. (Snip) Murphy is ready to end his obscurity. On Tuesday, when he is sworn in, New Jersey will become one of just eight states where Democrats run every branch of government. If Murphy has his way, New Jersey will become a proving ground for every liberal policy

Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a
