01) Epileptic boy has first seizure in months less than 24 hours after ‘life-threatening’ confiscation of cannabis medication

“Last year 12 year-old Billy became the first person in the UK to receive an NHS prescription for medical cannabis, with the support of his GP. But last month the Home Office intervened to order his doctor to halt the prescription or risk losing his licence.

Billy mother, Charlotte, yesterday accused the government of “signing Billy’s death warrant” after returning from Canada with a six-month supply of the medicine only to have it confiscated upon arrival.”

01) Boy, eight, was taken from his family and put in foster care after social worker said his mother didn’t take him for ice cream or let him get his hair cut how he liked

“‘A social worker claimed a mother was failing to meet her son’s “emotional needs” because she had not taken him for an ice cream or got his haircut in the style he wanted it.

The case was brought to the High Court after a lower-ranking judge at a Family Court hearing ruled that the boy should be taken out of his mother’s care and made to live with foster parents.

The High Court judge, Mr Justice Mostyn, described the social worker’s claims as “utterly insubstantial”

The High Court overruled the family court and ordered that the boy can return home.”

One might be hard pushed to find a finer example of the madness that is political correctness, this time imposed on a mother of an 8 year-old boy by a UK social worker. – feinmann0

We all like to give “our little prince” something to make them happy…but taking them away, over a haircut style?…and ice cream?…

Utter insanity.

01) Trump Closer To Ending Rule Of Law Than You Think


“Hours after Paul Manafort, the former chairman of President Donald Trump’s campaign, was sent to jail to await trial, Trump’s lawyer suggested the president could clean things up in the Russia investigation by issuing presidential pardons.

“When the whole thing is over, things might get cleaned up with some presidential pardons,” Rudy Giuliani, the former New York City mayor who is now on Trump’s defense team, told the New York Daily News.
He later told a Wall Street Journal reporter, however, that Trump “will not do it, based on my advice and all our team.

Republicans Using Slave Owners’ Favorite Bible Verse To Justify Child Prisons…

01) Republicans Using Slave Owners’ Favorite Bible Verse To Justify Child Prisons


“Clearly disturbed by the widespread moral outcry against the Trump administration’s decision to separate children from their parents at the U.S. border, Attorney General Jeff Sessions used a Biblical passage on Thursday to justify extreme immigration enforcement. “I would like to cite to you the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13,” Sessions said in a speech to law enforcement officers in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Sessions went on to insist that the Bible argues Christians must “obey the laws of the government because God has ordained them for the purpose of order.”

It’s fitting that Sessions turned to Romans 13. The text has a long track record of being used by Christians attempting to defend immoral public policy. In the 1850s, when slave masters paid preachers and public theologians to defend the plantation economy against abolitionists, Romans 13 was one of the most cited texts of slaveholder religion as well.
