The Crown of Scotland was placed on Her Majesty's coffin in Edinburgh's St Giles Cathedral today as her son King Charles and his siblings watched on. The sombre moment was part of the service in the heart of the Scottish capital this afternoon. Made from gold, silver and precious gems, the crown is the centrepiece of the Honours of Scotland - which are the oldest Crown jewels in Britain and among the oldest in Europe. The crown was made in its current form in 1540 for King James V of Scotland. In its earliest form, the crown dates back to 1503, when it was depicted being worn by King James IV.

Interesting info from article: ~~"The crown, which weighs 3.6 lbs (1.6kg) was fashioned into its current form by Edinburgh goldsmith John Mosman. James wore it for the first time to his consort's coronation in Edinburgh's abbey church of Holyrood in 1540. The 'circlet' at its base is made from Scottish gold and encrusted with 22 gemstones and 20 precious stones taken from the original crown. Pearls from Scottish rivers also feature on it. The Honours of Scotland were first used together for the coronation of Mary, Queen of Scots in 1543, when she was just nine months old." ~~

I have seen it on a trip to the castle. If you ever visit, tour the armory. Fantastic art and weapons.

Mike Lindell, the controversial CEO of MyPillow, said Tuesday that his cellphone had been seized by the FBI. In an episode of his show, the Lindell Report, the election skeptic said the seizure took place at a Hardee’s drive-thru while driving back to his home in Mankato, Minnesota. Two cars blocked his vehicle in the pickup lane and Mr. Lindell, according to a clip of the show at The Post Millennial, told his traveling buddy that “that’s either a bad guy, or it’s FBI.” The CEO and ally of former President Donald Trump said he asked the officers if they were going to arrest him.

Medical school and postgraduate training is a long and arduous journey, often taking 8-10 years beyond college. There is much to learn, process and assimilate. Clinical judgement stems not only from experience but also from intelligence. Medicine is a high stakes game. Sickness and health lie in the balance, as does life and death (or vision and blindness in my professional world of retina surgery). Medical errors can be due to accidents, incorrect judgement calls, or lack of knowledge. When your health or life is on the line, you want the smartest physician caring for you, making critical decisions, or performing challenging surgery.
Mass. voters on brink of overriding Dem

Massachusetts voters will have a chance to repeal a law allowing illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses. The bill was vetoed in May by Republican Governor Charlie Baker. But in another case of ruling against the will of the people, the veto didn’t stick. So strongly do Democrats in the state legislature feel about illegals voting that they went all in and overrode the veto. Nevertheless, the people will have the final say, as the ballot measure’s approval was announced on Friday. “It just shows how out of touch the Democratic Legislature is with the will of the people,” Massachusetts GOP chairman Jim Lyons told the Boston Herald.

For several weeks now Micki Witthoeft, the mother of deceased Capitol protester Ashli Babbitt, has held a nightly protest outside the Washington DC prison and political prisoner gulag. On Tuesday President Trump called Micki and the protest crowd outside the DC Gulag. The speakers were blaring so hopefully the abused political prisoners inside could hear him. This was incredible! President Trump called Micki who he has called before. President Trump: Well, Micki it’s an honor to be with you and everyone listening.

Under President Joe Biden, the foreign-born population of the United States has grown to its highest level ever recorded, the U.S. Census Bureau reports. Over the last year, the Biden administration added two million new foreign-born residents to the U.S. population — illegal aliens and legal immigrants on green cards and visas — serving as a boon for Biden’s billionaire donors in the financial industry who are some of the biggest beneficiaries of mass immigration and an ever-growing populace. According to Steven Camarota at the Center for Immigration Studies, who analyzed the latest Census Bureau data, the foreign-born population hit nearly 47 million

Most voters believe President Joe Biden has divided the country despite promising to unite it, a survey from Convention of States Action/Trafalgar Group found. The survey, obtained first by Breitbart News, found 58.7 percent of voters express the belief that Biden has, indeed, divided the country during his time in office. Just one in five say he has unified the country, and another one in five remain unsure. While a plurality of Democrats, 43.6 percent, believe Biden has unified the country during his time in office, that sentiment is not held by most Republicans or independents

Heinz will be forced to change its iconic ketchup bottles following the death of the Queen. The manufacturing giant, along with other high-profile brands such as Gordon's Twinings and Bollinger all face having to scrap the late monarch's coveted coat of arms from their packaging. The distinctive image depicts the lion of England, the unicorn of Scotland and a shield divided into four quarters, along with the words 'by appointment to Her Majesty the Queen'. In the case of Heinz ketchup, this was displayed at the top and on the front of its bottles sold in the UK.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre insisted Tuesday both that inflation was “essentially flat” and that it was OK for President Biden to host a large celebration of his Inflation Reduction Act — even though annual inflation remains elevated at 8.3%. “Overall, prices have been essentially flat in our country these last two months. That is welcome news for American families with more work still to do,” Jean-Pierre said at her regular briefing, moments ahead of the large South Lawn bash. Republicans, however, attacked Biden as “out of touch” for hosting a celebration for the environmental and healthcare spending bill

The Interior Department’s (DOI) Bureau of Land Management (BLM) agreed to halt drilling permits on 113 oil and gas leases across 58,617 acres of land in Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota, according to the settlement. The DOI agreed to stop drilling after a coalition of environmental nonprofits led by WildEarth Guardians and the Sierra Club filed a lawsuit against the agency in January 2021.

Special Counsel John Durham’s request to unseal a motion in limine pertaining to the trial of Igor Danchenko, who has been identifed as the “primary source” behind ex-British spy Christopher Steele’s dossier, has been granted. A motion in limine is a “pretrial motion asking that certain evidence be found inadmissible, and that it not be referred to or offered at trial,” according to Cornell’s Legal Information Institute. The Special Counsel’s motion to include the evidence against Danchenko reveals that the FBI was aware of his activities as early as July 2016. “Beginning in or about July 2016 and continuing through December 2016, the FBI began receiving a series of reports

Crist suggested the race for governor in the Sunshine State is about “decency” and “being kind to everyone” before saying of DeSantis, “You know some people call him DeSatan? Have you heard that?” “DeSatan versus that,” Crist said, gesturing to a sign behind him featuring his own name, and one of the event attendees said, “Christ!” Crist responded, “Oh think about it! Boom!”

Sen. Lindsey Graham is set to introduce a new nationwide “late-term” abortion ban Tuesday—fewer than three months after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v.

The South Carolina Republican is expected to call for a ban on most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy at a press conference with anti-abortion leaders, the Washington Post reported. Graham’s office has not divulged any details on what the Protecting Pain-Capable Unborn Children from Late-Term Abortions Act entails ahead of the announcement.

The major stock market indexes tumbled on Tuesday after a key measure of inflation came in worse than expected. The Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged 900 points, for a 2.8 percent decline. The S&P 500 dropped 3.2 percent, while the Nasdaq Composite fell 4.1 percent. The drop, which undid a week worth of gains, came after the Bureau of Labor Statistics revealed that the Consumer Price Index (CPI) increased by 8.3 percent in August compared to the same time last year and increased 0.1 percent from the previous month. The rise was worse than the 8.1 percent increase that economists had expected, according to Dow Jones estimates. The month-to-month figure

Our American republic did quite well for nearly a century without the IRS or its forerunner, the Office of the Commissioner of Revenue. Today, federal “revenooers” are the greatest threat to freedom in a country where liberty is already being lost at an alarming rate. The IRS is more than a mere revenue collector for the federal government. It has often been used an instrument of intimidation, even terror, against political foes, and those who might not be so enthusiastic about paying income taxes, or simply have a financial hardship that limits their ability to pay.
