Here we go again: UK hospital applies to High Court to switch off baby Alfie’s life support

It’s the Charlie Gard case all over again. That’s the UK’s NHS system for you.

From Daily Mirror: The parents of Alfie Evans have spoken of their “living nightmare” after a hospital advised switching off their baby son’s life support, it is claimed.

Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool has applied to the High Court to switch off life support for the 18-month-old in a coma, the Liverpool Echo understands.

Alfie’s dad has spoken of their “devastation” and “disappointment” after the hospital reportedly said they had exhausted all options in trying to diagnose and treat the infant’s mystery brain condition.

It comes shortly after Alfie’s parents Thomas Evans and Kate James, both 20, said that after months of searching they had finally found a hospital abroad that was willing to take him.

But a letter to them, seen by the Liverpool Echo, shows Alder Hey are opposing the move to an Italian children’s hospital – and are stepping up the battle over Alfie’s life by taking the matter to court.

The Alder Hey letter says the hospital has asked the High Court to rule that it is legal and in Alfie’s best interest for long-term ventilation and intensive care to be withdrawn.

It says: “The trust’s position is that it does not consider the provision of continued mechanical ventilation nor the move to Italy to be in Alfie’s best interests. The application also asks the court to make a declaration that it is in Alfie’s best interests to be transferred to a hospice setting and to be treated on a palliative pathway with appropriate end of life care.

Mr. Evans from Bootle, told the Liverpool Echo: “It’s devastating – we feel so disappointed. I feel Alfie is being ignored, let down and not given a chance. “Why should we take him to a hospice when there’s a hospital happy to take him? Alder Hey were watching us work so hard to get this hospital – now we’ve got an offer and a doctor willing to come over, but they’ve refused to speak with him. “Now we are starting to go through a living nightmare. They are making it 10 times worse.”

Tens of thousands of people have formed “Alfie’s Army” over the past year to support and fundraise for the family, including many supporters of Charlie Gard’s parents in their legal fight.

Charlie died aged 11 months following his family’s court battle to send him to the US for treatment.

The reported decision by Alder Hey comes after months of fraught discussions between Alfie’s parents and the hospital over what to do to help their son.

An Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust said: “We understand that this is an incredibly difficult time for the family concerned and we continue to liaise directly with them. We are unable to comment on individual cases. Alder Hey is a specialist children’s hospital which therefore means we treat many children with often complex, life threatening conditions.

Unfortunately despite the best efforts of our clinicians, some of these children are sadly unable to recover from their illness. In such a situation, medical professionals will meet to discuss the most appropriate care plan going forward, focusing on the comfort, wellbeing and best interests of the child concerned.

The Trust will often seek advice from specialist clinicians at other trusts. The care plan is always discussed in full with the family to aim to reach agreement between clinicians and parents about the most appropriate care. We also seek input from the families concerned and this may extend to include review by experts instructed by the family.

Understandably these cases place families under great pressure. We will always seek to reach agreement with parents of the child concerned but there will be some rare situations where agreement cannot be reached and the treating team believe that continued active treatment is not in a child’s best interests. In these cases the Trust will refer a case to the Family Division of the High Court and seek a determination as to the best interests of the child. In all such cases we will also invite the Children and Family Court Advisory Support Service to consider the case and provide independent representation of the child.”

Baby-butcher supporter Kristen Bell shilling for Whole Foods

Hollyweird libtard Kristen Bell is a big supporter of baby butchers Planned Parenthood. She is also very vocal about her disdain for President Trump. Bell is also a rabid anti-gunner. A glimpse at some of Bell’s tweets:

  • “The @NRA needs mental health care.” (In response to the Sandy Hook shootings.)
  • “Official diagnosis: This country is gun sick.” (In response to the Dallas Police shootings.)
  • A tweet Bell retweeted after the Orlando shootings: “My thoughts and prayers are with the Senators that voted down gun control. My thoughts: do your job. My prayer: you’re voted out of office.”
  • Another retweet of Bell’s: “Ladies, this election cycle you either vote with your vagina or your asshole.#HillaryClinton#DonaldTrump

She’s being paid (big bucks I assume) as the spokeswomyn for several companies:

She’s now speaking on behalf of another company, Whole Foods. On November 4, Whole Foods announced the following on their Facebook page:

Introducing our Holiday Host: Kristen Bell! Go behind-the-scenes and follow us all season long to learn how this vegetarian tackles the turkey for her family, plant-based sides, and so much more

From Whole Foods’ web page: Kristen offers several ideas for you including, holiday main course tips, tips for holiday baking, holiday party tips and a “survival guide for the holidays.”

Here’s a pro-tip for surviving the holidays: Pray your mother doesn’t abort you at Planned Parenthood.

Sandra Bullock to star as Wendy Davis in “Let Her Speak”

sandra bullock

Way to tarnish your career by playing the loser Abortion Barbie. I predict another Hollyweird dud.

From Dallas News: Sandra Bullock is poised to take on the role of Wendy Davis in a new movie called Let Her Speak about the filibuster that catapulted the former Texas senator into the national spotlight.

Bullock, who previously lived in Austin, is attached to the script as long as the project lands a director she likes, Deadline Hollywood reported.

The movie would cover the day of the filibuster as well as Davis’ journey from a teen mother living in a trailer park to a Harvard-trained lawyer who later won a seat on the Fort Worth City Council.

On June 25, 2013, Davis stood on the state Senate floor in pink Mizuno sneakers for more than 12 straight hours to block a vote on what would have been one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country. She went without breaks and water during the filibuster.

When Republicans used strict interpretations of the Senate rules to try to end the filibuster and call a vote before the first special session of the 83rd Legislature ended at midnight, abortion rights activists who had packed the gallery erupted into chants of “let her speak.”

The vote was cast in favor of the bill largely along party lines, but came too late and the session was called to a close without Senate Bill 5’s passage. 

After the filibuster, then-Gov. Rick Perry called legislators back for another special session, and the bill that banned abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy was passed.

The bill also mandated that abortions be performed at hospital-like surgical centers and that doctors who perform abortions must have admitting privileges at hospitals, requirements that caused more than half of the state’s abortion clinics to close.

After a lengthy legal debate, the U.S. Supreme Court in June 2016 struck down the regulations on abortion doctors and clinics in a 5-3 decision. The ruling determined that the restrictions posed an unconstitutional burden on women seeking to end a pregnancy.

Davis waived a bid for re-election to run for governor in 2014. She was dealt a strong defeat by Greg Abbott, who beat her with more than 20 percentage points. 

Another Hollyweird project I won’t be seeing.

Pro-life student group wins settlement after professor tries to wipe out chalk message

Excellent!

From Fox News: A California professor who is seen on video trying to censor pro-life students drawing with sidewalk chalk has been ordered to undergo First Amendment training and pay $17,000 as a result of a district court settlement.

Fresno State University public health professor Dr. Gregory Thatcher recruited students from his class to help deface the Fresno State Students for Life (FSSL) sidewalk chalk.

Thatcher allegedly harassed and intimidated the group, accusing them of chalking outside the free speech zone on campus — which hadn’t existed at the school since 2015.

“What the professor did was wrong, and the only permit a student needs to speak on campus is the First Amendment,” the pro-life club’s president, Bernadette Tasy, told Fox News.

The chalk messages encouraged students on campus to seek pro-life health care options.

Tasy captured an exchange between herself and Thatcher in a video clip of the incident.

“Free speech is free speech in the free speech area,” Thatcher is heard telling Tasy. “It’s a pretty simple concept, okay? This does not constitute a free speech area. Okay?”

After Tasy insisted they had permission from the university, Thatcher started erasing the chalk with his shoe. “You have permission to put it down, and I have permission to get rid of it. This is our part of free speech. College campuses are not free speech areas,” Thatcher said, “Do you understand? Obviously you don’t understand.”

As part of the settlement, in which Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) represented FSSL, Thatcher will pay $1,000 to Tasy and $1,000 to another student, Jesus Herrera, along with some attorneys’ fees. The professor is also required to undergo First Amendment training to be provided by ADF.

Thatcher told Fox News he won’t have to pay a penny out of his own pocket because the settlement was made through his insurance company. “I did not, in any way, admit to any wrongdoing,” Thatcher said. “I did agree to sit through a training seminar because I love to learn others’ thoughts and opinions.”

But Tasy said it’s not about the money. “The important thing is that Dr. Thatcher won’t be able to interfere with our expressive activities again,” she said.

Tasy was “really shocked” that a professor would behave like that – especially at a public university. “Public university professors should be encouraging free speech and not erasing it from existence,” she said.

Travis Barham, ADF Legal Counsel, said Thatcher was “in a league of his own” with such a flagrant violation of the First Amendment. “This is a particularly extreme case because you have a professor trying to wipe away the chalk himself,” Barham said. “Far too often university officials try to play the role of speech police and try to restrict what can be said and where it can be said on campus.”

Fresno State University did not respond to request for comment. Thatcher remains listed as faculty in the Department of Public Health, as noted by the College Fix.

Hollyweird libtard Mila Kunis donates monthly to PP in Mike Pence’s name

mila kunis

Mila Kunis

Great! I guess that means less taxpayer dollars needed for the baby butchers.

From Daily Mail: Mila Kunis makes a donation once a month to the nonprofit Planned Parenthood in Mike Pence‘s name.

Laughing, she told Conan O’Brien she anonymously sends a donation in the name of the Vice President of the United States because she disagrees with his policies on reducing access to reproductive health care.

She said: ‘This is when a lot of hate mail comes my way. I apologise if I’m offending anybody. I disagreed with some of the stuff that Pence was doing and was trying to do.

‘And so, as a reminder that there are women out there in the world that may or may not agree with his platform, I put him on a list of recurring donations that are made in his name to Planned Parenthood.’

And the Friends With Benefits star doesn’t see it as a prank but just as a way to peacefully protest his policies. She added: ‘Every month, to his office, he gets a little letter that says, “An anonymous donation has been made in your name.” I don’t look at it as a prank. This is just – I strongly disagree, and this is my little way of showing it.’

Mila is not alone in her subtle protest. A year ago Planned Parenthood confirmed it had received more than 200,000 individual donations in the name of the vice president, who has long attempted to restrict women’s access to abortion.

‘We’ve seen an unprecedented outpouring of support, with more than 200,000 people donating in the week following the election — a quarter of whom pledged to be monthly supporters, recognizing the long-term work that is needed,’ the organization’s president Cecile Richards said in a statement.

FYI: Kunis is a spokesman for Jim Beam, which conservatives are now boycotting.

Crate & Barrel forms a partnership with libtard Reese Witherspoon

reese witherspoon

Cheater Hillary and Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon is a Hollyweird libtard that Crate & Barrel has chosen as their new spokesman. From Yahoo:

If you adore Reese Witherspoon’s ladylike taste and live for the modern luxury of Crate & Barrel, then thank your lucky stars, ya’ll, because a Witherspoon and C&B collection is coming your way in 2018. Witherspoon, under her Draper James lifestyle and fashion line, is partnering with the home furnishings retailer to codesign a line that will debut with a Spring and Summer 2018 collection.

The Big Little Lies star and C&B made their “home-ance” official by releasing a very-Reese campaign trailer today titled “Make This Season Merry and Just Right.” In the 30-second depiction of our holiday entertaining goals, Witherspoon expertly hosts guests at her home and graciously accepts their compliments. Little do they know, Witherspoon has been practicing her party-throwing skills…a lot.”

Witherspoon is a self-important actress who believes everyone should know her name.  In 2013, she and her husband, Jim Toth, were pulled over in Georgia. See Dr. Eowyn’s “Drunken actress Reese Witherspoon reveals narcissism of Hollywood“.

From Wikipedia:

“Witherspoon and Toth were pulled over after the car in which they were traveling was seen weaving across a double line on Peachtree Street.  Toth, who was driving, was found to have a blood alcohol level of 0.139 and was arrested and charged with driving under the influence and failing to maintain a lane. Witherspoon was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct for disobeying the arresting officer’s instructions to remain in the vehicle and arguing with him, asking if he knew who she was. Witherspoon pleaded no contest and was fined $313, including court costs.”

She later apologized and said she was “deeply embarrassed” after her arrest. She released a statement after the incident:

Reese Witherspoon said she is “deeply embarrassed” about what she said to police during the arrest of her and her husband during a traffic stop in Atlanta.

“Do you know my name?” Witherspoon is quoted as asking the state trooper who stopped the couple. She also said, “You’re about to find out who I am” and “You’re about to be on national news,” according to the arrest report.

The Oscar-winning actress released a statement late Sunday apologizing for her behavior to police that began when her husband, Hollywood agent Jim Toth, was arrested early Friday for driving under the influence of alcohol.

“I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said,” Witherspoon said. “It was definitely a scary situation and I was frightened for my husband, but that is no excuse. I was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job. I have nothing but respect for the police and I’m very sorry for my behavior.”

Witherspoon is also a proggie who supports the demorats and their policies.

Witherspoon recently held a fundraiser for Gavin Newsom’s gubernatorial campaign. Her neighborhood was peppered with fliers mocking Newsom and his affair. The “do not disturb” door hangers were created to look like something guests would find in a typical hotel room, though they read: “Do Not Disturb. Gavin’s Boning Your Wife. Gavin for Governor.”

Witherspoon also supported cheater Hillary Clinton.

Witherspoon donated money to cheater Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

 Witherspoon also said that meeting President Obama left her absolutely tongue tied.

Witherspoon endorsed President Obama in 2012.

Witherspoon also participated in the gun control, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, “Demand  A Plan to End Gun Violence” video.

Witherspoon also supports baby-butchers Planned Parenthood. After they were exposed for butchering babies, she defended Planned Parenthood saying, “No mother in the world wants her daughter to have fewer rights than she did. It’s up to us to make sure that every single girl in this world can control their bodies and their lives and futures.”

Down syndrome entrepreneur build success out of socks, shatters stereotypes

john cronin

Good thing John’s mom didn’t live in Iceland when she became pregnant.

From Fox News: John Cronin’s message is simple, “socks, socks and more socks”, but the 21-year-old entrepreneur with Down syndrome and founder of John’s Crazy Socks mission is much more powerful; smashing stereotypes of what people with a disability can achieve.

“Down syndrome never holds me back,” John Cronin tells FOX Business. “I love inspiring people.”

In 2016, John was finishing high school and, like other young men, was facing a big decision of what to do next. “He started talking to me about going in to business,” Mark X. Cronin, John’s Dad, co-founder and president of John’s Crazy Socks, tells FOX Business.

John came to his dad with some interesting ideas, including a “fun store” — they are still trying to figure that one out — and a food truck. “I had a problem, my dad and I, both of us can’t cook!” jokes  John Cronin.

Eventually, John’s love for colorful sock flair became an inspiration, and in December 2016, John’s Crazy Socks, an online one-stop sock shop, opened for business.  From food-inspired knee highs to canine crew socks, John’s Crazy Sock’s now boasts over 1,300 pairs of fun, funky socks. Since opening, business has been booming.

“We are on a mission to spread happiness, and we are spreading that message through socks,” says Mark X. Cronin.

Each order is shipped out the same day which includes John’s story, often a hand written note by John, some candy and two discount cards – “one for you and one to give to a friend.”

Like any startup, John’s Crazy Socks ran into its fair share of challenges.  Initially, manufacturers refused to do business with a startup that had no track record.

“I think there was an assumption on many that this was a quaint, little business, you were doing part time and on the side.  When they find out, in our first year, we are going to do $1.2 to $1.3 million dollars, that makes people sit up,” says Mark X. Cronin. “Which I would suggest is pretty good for a startup.”

The nine-month old company has been recognized by local organizations, John and Mark recently completed the prestigious business accelerator MassChallenge, and have shipped socks to former president George H.W. Bush, comedian Kevin James and Houston Texans defensive end JJ Watt.

More than profit, John and Mark are dedicated to giving back.  5% of their sales go to charity, like the National Down syndrome Society, and they carry specialty socks for causes like Autism Awareness. In addition, John and Mark’s staff include employees who have a disability.
