Erik Ortiz Cruz is a 10-month-old boy from Villaluenga de la Sagra, Spain who was born with a brain disorder called cortical dysplasia.
His family and friends have been raising money to pay for a surgery that costs $83,000. When they asked Cristiano Ronaldo to donate a pair of cleats and a jersey to auction off, the Real Madrid star decided to go ahead and cover the entire surgery, AS reports.
Meet the American Pastor Responsible for the Murder, Criminalization and Oppression of Africa’s Gays
Mother Jones has a fantastic article providing the history and consequences of his anti-gay campaigning in Uganda. To say this man is responsible for murder, oppression, hate crimes, and torture, is not a “bridge too far”.
Yes - American Christians are behind both Russia’s and Uganda’s anti-gay persecution and crimes against humanity, and here is the evidence:
In early March 2009, Lively returned to Uganda at Langa’s invitation. Uganda’s High Court had recently found that the government overstepped its authority by detaining two gay activists simply because they were gay. In response, a Langa-run group called the Family Life Network planned a three-day conference to expose what he called the “hidden and dark” gay agenda. On the last day, Lively gave a marathon five-hour presentation, which was broadcast on Ugandan television. He claimed that homosexuals were aggressively recruiting Uganda’s children and argued that human rights protections shouldn’t be extended to these “predatory” figures.
(CNN) — A Chinese satellite looking into the mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 “observed a suspected crash area at sea,” a Chinese government agency said — a potentially pivotal lead into what has been a frustrating search for the Boeing 777.
China’s State Administration for Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense announced the discovery, including images of what it said were “three suspected floating objects and their sizes.” The objects aren’t small at 13 by 18 meters (43 by 59 feet), 14 by 19 meters and 24 by 22 meters.
The images were captured on March 9 — which was the day after the plane went missing — but weren’t released until Wednesday.
The Chinese agency gave coordinates of 105.63 east longitude, 6.7 north latitude, which would put it in waters northeast of where it took off in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and south of Vietnam.
While the right whines about oppression, those who have suffered real oppression stand with Wisconsin against Scott Walker.
Members of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot are calling on Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen to dismiss cases against protesters arrested for singing in the Capitol building.
Two group members appear in a video released Tuesday calling for a petition to drop the more than 400 arrests made last summer.
The video is here:
It started when Aaron Hunt, a forward for Werder Breman of the German soccer league, was awarded a penalty kick for being taken down in the penalty area by a Nurnberg player. That is until he approached the referee and admitted that he had actually tripped over his own feet.
The referee then reversed the call, and Hunt got handshakes from the opposition players.
Not to be outdone though, later in the match a Nurnberg player corrected the referee when he wrongly awarded an inbound play to his team, rather than Werder Breman.
To this, the referee gave a thumbs up.
Somebody is going to have to explain to me why the Democratic “base,” which is presumably younger and more spry than the older and whiter Republican “base,” is nonetheless less likely to turn out for midterm elections than the That Sean Hannity Reminds Me Of My Grandson crowd. It is taken as a given, and past performance indicates clearly that it’s usually the case, but I’m not sure why it has to be. So, in the interest to changing this curious dynamic, let me take this red-hot poker and shove it up the base’s ass.
Jim Inhofe as the chairman of the Senate Environment Committee? Chuck (Bag Of Hammers) running Judiciary? Grumpy McCloudyeller with an even bigger platform as chairman of Armed Services? Jefferson Davis Beauregard Sessions as chairman of anything?
Go ahead. Stay home now. I dare yo
Fred Olen Ray was already a legendary director of B movies and exploitation films back in the early 1980s. But amazingly, he’s just gotten more prolific with time. His IMDB page lists 134 films with titles like Bikini Girls from the Lost Planet, Super Ninja Bikini Babes, Invisible Mom II, Droid Gunner and Wizards of the Demon Sword. Here’s a very incomplete look at his insane filmography.
It’s hard to believe one person is responsible for so much of our bizarre cult movie canon, from 1980’s Alien Dead all the way up to our beloved Super Shark. He’s possibly best known for the film Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers, which we won’t cover here since it’s not science fiction or fantasy. These days, he seems to do a lot of disaster movies, softcore cable TV porn movies, heartwarming Lifetime TV movies, and films with “Bikini” in their titles. And he just did a successful Kickstarter for a film called Spidora.
Rand Paul’s biggest political decision is approaching: whether to run for president in 2016 or focus solely on re-election to his U.S. Senate seat. A Republican lawmaker from his home state wants to free him from the potential dilemma by letting him run for both.
State Senate Majority Leader Damon Thayer said Thursday he wants to clarify that current Kentucky law, which prevents someone from running for multiple offices, does not apply to federal elections.
A bill he introduced would allow candidates’ names to appear twice on the same ballot if one or both offices sought are federal offices.
“He (Paul) is the impetus for it, but it could affect anyone in the federal delegation,” said Thayer, R-Georgetown, who introduced the bill in the GOP-led Kentucky Senate.
he Canadian Press is reporting that Olivia Chow resigned her seat in Parliament earlier today and is expected to formally launch her bid on Thursday to become the next mayor of Toronto.
I mean, [we are] very much like Nazi Germany. And I know you’re not supposed to say ‘Nazi Germany,’ but I don’t care about political correctness. You know, you had a government using its tools to intimidate the population. We now live in a society where people are afraid to say what they actually believe. And it’s because of the PC police, it’s because of politicians, it’s because of news. All of these things are combining to stifle people’s conversation. The reason that is so horrible is because the only way you have harmony and reach a consensus is by talking. But if, in fact, people are afraid to talk, you never reach consensus. And instead you grow further and further apart. And that’s exactly what’s happening, creating a horrible schism that will destroy our nation.
Hey, Doctor Carson - mind if I call you doc? ok…doc….look
we. are. nothing. like. Nazi. Germany.
got it? good…..
and………….. as Doc. Carson’s Nazi fantasies are being sold down that river they call crazy, Rick Wiles decides he wants in on the Godwin party:
I’ve warned the American people for fifteen years this day would arrive and it is here. No more warnings. America has been overthrown by a Nazi dictatorship. It is in power now.
Tens of thousands of German Nazis were important to America after World War II. They taught America’s elite how to set up a Nazi dictatorship. We are now in the new Nazi nightmare. So don’t blame it on that buffoon in the White House, Barack Obama. He is merely their little stooge, just like George Bush and Dick Cheney and Bill Clinton were their stooges too.
