If it's Tuesday it must be a day for the kissing of hands. Boris and Liz go to Balmoral and out goes one Prime Minister and in comes another. Toby and James disagree about whether Liz Truss is her own woman or controlled by the WEF and You-Know-Who. For laughs the guys discuss the Chris Rock-Dave Chappelle gig which Toby took in on Sunday night and James enters the 21st Century of internet connections, all the while having had enough of the "old tossers and old farts" of Extinction Rebellion which also leads to testing James's hypothesis that the bush tucker trials in I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here were designed to prepare us for our insect-eating future. (Pro Hint: Don't eat the Banana Slug!)

Introduction: Minutes 0 to 3:30 We'll be off next week and back on October 29th. My dog got kicked out of puppy kindergarten. Here's a link to the Twitter thread about that I mentioned. Royals: Minutes 3:30 to 21:30 We've been hearing for some time that the palace is worried about the upcoming fifth season of The Crown. The Windsors were pleased with it up until last season when Diana was introduced. We're hearing that the palace wants a fiction warning added. By freaking out about The Crown, Charles is bringing more attention to it. Prince Philip and his mistress Penny Knatchbull's relationship will be shown this season. Prince Charles' coronation will supposedly only be an hour but it will likely have other events that last the whole day. They're saying it won't be as opulent as Queen Elizabeth's coronation. There's a controversy over the crown that Camilla will wear as it has the Koh-i-noor diamond stolen from Indian. The coronation date is on May 6th, which will be Archie's fourth birthday. Chandra doesn't think this was even a factor in the planning. It's not known yet whether the Sussexes are invited, the royals are probably waiting to see what's in Harry's memoir. We're also hearing that Harry's memoir and their Netflix docuseries will be out in December. Prince Harry is suing Associated Newspapers, the parent company of The Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday, along with Elton John and David Furnish, Elizabeth Hurley, Sadie Frost, and Baroness Doreen Lawrence, whose son Stephen Lawrence was murdered in a racist hate crime in 1993. It's over spying and surveillance. Omid Scobie reported in his column this week that Harry would take the stand if it came to that. Will and Kate are covering People Magazine this week. They're one of two covers along with Christopher Meloni. The coverage claims Will is going to step up running the Duchy of Cornwall and that they're supposedly embracing a heavier workload and their increased visibility. The Cambridges did a radio program for World Mental Health Day. The segment they released to their social media was so bad. Will just talked about a “toolbox” without giving examples. They should phase this issue out of their charity portfolio as they're lightweights. William is said to have spent last weekend at Balmoral alone without his wife and kids. I play a segment from Zoom where we talk about an humanitarian award the Sussexes are getting in December. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie: Minutes 21:30 to 29:45 In January, 2021, Angelina sent an email to Brad offering to sell him her half of the Miraval wine business. This was released as part of her defense in Pitt's lawsuit against her for selling to Stoli. We also heard a statement from Angelina's lawyer that Brad hasn't denied his abuse of her and the kids. Brad had been cutting Angelina out of the business and was spending money in ways she hadn't approved. He doesn't seem to care about this at all and is on the  current cover of Billboard Magazine to show off the renovated music studio in Miraval. We are also hearing that he wants to sell his production company, Plan B. Chandra thinks Pitt has been bleeding money from that business and that he's cash poor. I play a segment from Zoom where we talk about Brad and Angelina. Comments of the week: Minutes 29:45 to end My Comments of the week are from Janey and MrsFonzieFace on Peridot's post about Jonathan Majors covering Men's Health and getting in incredible shape.

They discussed the misappropriation of biblical prophesy throughout history, and especially today. Since then, Ken learned that Martyn was a popular television guest in the U.K., offering historical context for the week-long series of events surrounding the remembrance of Queen Elizabeth II, and the long-anticipated accession of King Charles to the throne. Ken shares his personal connection through his grandmother, born in London in 1903, and Ken's visit to London the same week Princess Diana was memorialized in August of 1997. Ken and Martyn trace the events from Balmoral in Scotland to London - Buckingham Palace, Westminster Cathedral, and Windsor Castle. Ken shares his mixed emotions, citing friends who just cannot watch - the conspicuous wealth, the history of colonization, and the display of "theocracy." Martyn brings a rich perspective to it all, bringing context and depth. Ken's affection for his grandmother's homeland and Martyn's knowledge and appreciation of America's perspective makes for a lively, informative, and stimulating exchange.

Introduction: Minutes 0 to 7 My new puppy is doing great but I don't let him sleep in my room. Chandra started watching Blonde and it's not as bad as she expected. (Update: She finished and it's bad.) Roger Federer retired after playing his final match with Rafa Nadal and it was sadder than Chandra expected.  Royals: Minutes 7:00 to 30:00 Last week we had the Queen's funeral on Monday. We were surprised how long the public portion was and didn't expect the Windsor portion to be aired. Both Harry and Meghan were impeccable and regal at the many ceremonies despite everything that's been thrown at them. Harry stood out and the cameras kept finding him and Meghan. I play a segment from Zoom where we talked about the Queen. Kate and William seemed especially happy after the Queen died and Kate sure helped herself to the Queen's jewelry. When I die I want a quick funeral so people can go about their day. There are three new royal books out now. Valentine Low's book is Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Throne, that seems to have the most tea, Katie Nicholl has The New Royals and Angela Levin has Camilla From Outcast to Queen Consort. Valentine Low seems to know that his sources are racist.  In Valentine Low's book Meghan is blamed for the way she was treated by the palace staff. These talking points were pushed by the palace earlier to Robert Lacey for Battle of the Brothers. It goes far beyond victim blaming and proves that Meghan was downplaying the abuse she endured. Low gives a bunch of examples of the royal staff being incompetent and rude to Meghan while her reactions seem perfectly reasonable. At one point Meghan disagreed with the plans a female staff member had made and told her to change them. When the woman said it would be too hard, Meghan responded “Don't worry, If there was literally anyone else I could ask to do this, I would be asking them instead of you.” Meanwhile Charles sounds like an awful boss. He's gone through five secretaries in seven years and he calls his staff at all hours of the day, including on Christmas. His office is described as toxic and the staff are backstabbing. Nicholl's book has the detail that we've heard before that William can't forgive Harry and that William “always expected Harry would be his wingman.” She also writes that Charles is holding Archie and Lilibet's titles over the Sussexes' heads depending on what Harry reveals in his memoir. We got so many stories about how and why Meghan wasn't invited to Balmoral when the Queen took a turn for the worse. It was telling that instead of focusing on the Queen after her death the press was about the Sussexes and everything they were supposedly doing wrong. We heard that Meghan wasn't invited because Kate didn't come for whatever reason. We wish Meghan would come out and say how despicable the royal family is, but they've been showing that with their actions. Meanwhile there are all these stories about whether Harry and his family can make up. Charles is said to have hope that they can but Gayle King reported that there was no peace deal at the funeral. Harry's kids don't have titles and Harry and Meghan have been demoted on the Royal.uk website to the bottom. We don't think Harry will dish the dirt in his first memoir but hopefully he will in his future books. I play a segment from Zoom where we talk about Charles. We talk about how Queen Margrethe of Denmark removed the royal stylings and titles from her grandchildren without telling them first. The Cambridges are sort-of stepping into their roles as Prince and Princess of Wales. They went to Wales, where William tried out his rudimentary Welsh. It was supposed to be a low key visit. It doesn't seem like they knew they were getting the Wales titles right away. Comments of the Week: Minutes 30:00 to end Chandra's comment of the week is from Light Purple on the story where Khloe Kardashian claimed she was engaged to Tristan Thompson last year. My comment of the week is from Lunchcoma on the post where Brad Pitt said that Emily Ratajkowski is hot. Thanks for listening and subscribing bitches!

Introduction: Minutes 0 to 4:30 I got a German Shepherd puppy and he's 16 weeks old now! He's a lot of work and he's very smart. I've been watching House of the Dragon and I like it but am not sure I will stick with it. Chandra finished What We Do in the Shadows. It had tone problems this season. Royals: Minutes 4:30 to 27:30 Last week right before we recorded we heard that Queen Elizabeth II had passed at 96. Harry went to Scotland, but sadly did not arrive before she passed. Both Kate and Meghan stayed behind, and at first we heard that Meghan would travel to Balmoral with Harry. After that it was reported that Charles told Harry that it was a somber occasion for the close family and that Meghan should not come. The British press did the most to smear her for wanting to support her husband. King Charles II made his first public statement on Friday, during which he announced that William and Kate would be getting the Prince and Princess of Wales titles. He also expressed support for Harry and Meghan. The Kensington Royal accounts changed their titles on social media to The Prince and Princess of Wales quickly. Before that, just a few hours after the Queen died, they changed their titles to The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge. The Line of Succession was updated and Harry and Meghan's children were not given titles. The latest news is that Archie and Lilibet will get titles, they just won't get HRH status. Chandra thinks Harry and Meghan are letting the royals make asses of themselves. Queen Elizabeth's funeral will be on Monday, and just like before Philip's funeral there's a lot of drama over which royals will get to wear military uniforms. Word was that only working royals will get to wear uniforms, meaning both Andrew and Harry won't have them, although it was reported that Andrew would get to wear his on one occasion. It looked exclusionary when Harry, a combat veteran, wasn't wearing a uniform at the funeral procession on Wednesday. Harry's people issued a statement the day before stating in part that “his decade of military service is not determined by the uniform he wears.” On Saturday Harry, Meghan, William and Kate arrived together outside Windsor Palace to greet the crowd. Meghan looked scared, Kate wasn't interacting with Meghan and you could tell there was a lot of tension. There are two videos of King Charles getting mad at pens. During his proclamation ceremony he made a face for his staff to move some pens that were in his way. There's another video of him signing something in Northern Ireland with Camilla. He seems mad to have gotten ink on himself and says “I can't bear this bloody thing.” The Queen's funeral is going to be a massive event and there's the question of security for world leaders. We know Trump and his buddy Putin aren't invited while Joe and Dr. Jill Biden are coming. Politico claimed that attendees were asked to fly commercial and take a bus to Westminster Abbey due to limited capacity, which sounds like a security nightmare. It's likely that was just for lower level diplomats and that there will be exceptions. Chandra reminds me of Prince Philip's memorial service in which many people came to show their respect for the Queen. After Charles announced that William and Kate would be the Prince and Princess of Wales, Duchess Kate issued a statement in which it sounded like she wanted to continue business as usual. Valentine Low at The Times wrote a shady piece that sounded like Kate better step up and do more work. There's a related story that William and Kate won't move into Windsor Castle anytime soon. I play a segment from Zoom where we talk about the royals. As Zakia mentioned in the Zoom segment, Meghan got criticized for taking 45 minutes to get ready for the walkabout. There was speculation that Meghan was wearing a mic pack there, which a source denied. William was the one to reach out to Harry about the walkabout at the last minute. Comments of the Week: Minutes 27:30 to end My comment of the week is from Sue E Generis on the post about Sheryl Lee Ralph's Emmy acceptance speech. Chandra mentions an interview Sheryl did on the red carpet where she mentions advice Robert DeNiro gave her early in her career.  Kaiser's comment of the week is from Eowyn in the post about Gisele Bundchen's interview with Elle in which she admits that she's told Tom Brady to be more present with their family.

El pasado jueves la casa real británica informó a los medios que la reina Isabel II había fallecido en el castillo escocés de Balmoral. La reina era ya muy mayor, 96 años tenía, y llevaba setenta en el trono. Ha vivido tantos años y ha reinado durante tanto tiempo que mayor parte británicos con vida no han conocido otra jefa de Estado. Los sucesivos Gobiernos del Reino Unido, por su parte, han tenido tiempo más que sobrado para ir preparando la sucesión en la persona del príncipe Carlos, que, como estaba previsto, este fin de semana fue proclamado como rey del Reino Unido de Gran Bretaña e Irlanda del Norte. Pero el que comúnmente conocemos como rey de Inglaterra no es sólo rey de Inglaterra, lo es de todo el Reino Unido y de otros catorce Estados soberanos repartidos por distintas partes del mundo: nueve en América y cinco en Oceanía. Antes eran muchos más, prácticamente todas las antiguas colonias británicas que accedieron a la independencia durante la segunda mitad del siglo XX. Estos países son plenamente soberanos, pero por tradición histórica mantienen en la jefatura del Estado al monarca reinante en el Reino Unido. En algunos casos sus representantes conservan aún ciertas prerrogativas aunque la labor es meramente protocolaria. Junto a esto el rey también es el jefe de la denominada “Commonwealth of Nations”, una mancomunidad de Estados independientes que surgió de las cenizas del imperio británico. La Commonwealth como tal nació en 1949 y reúne a un total de 54 países, entre ellos algunos de gran peso en el tablero internacional como la India, Pakistán, Australia, Sudáfrica o Canadá. La Commonwealth es una simple asociación de ex colonias británicas sin ningún contenido político, pero con un gran componente simbólico ya que es lo único que queda del otrora todopoderoso imperio británico. El problema es que el peso del Reino Unido ha ido a menos, pero siguen siendo los británicos quienes manejan la Commonwealth a su antojo. En principio ninguno de sus integrantes está en contra de la Commonwealth ya que pertenecer a ella no obliga a nada a sus Gobiernos, pero no sucede lo mismo con los llamados reinos de la mancomunidad. En algunos de ellos como Australia, Canadá o Nueva Zelanda se plantean independizarse del todo y proclamar la república para culminar así su proceso de independencia. Algo similar está sucediendo en las antiguas colonias del Caribe. Hace sólo unos meses Barbados, una pequeña isla antillana, declaró la república poniendo así fin a 55 años de monarquía desde su independencia. Los movimientos republicanos, entretanto, han ido tomando fuerza en lugares como Australia y Canadá, las dos joyas de la corona de la Commonwealth. Con Isabel II era difícil que una mayoría de australianos o canadienses se opusiesen a la monarquía porque la reina tenía una gran autoridad personal y despertaba mucho respeto, pero con su sucesor este proceso se podría acelerar. Durante el largo reinado de Isabel II se desmanteló el imperio británico mediante un proceso gradual para evitar males mayores. Con Carlos III todo eso podría cambiar. El imperio quedaría de este modo definitivamente sepultado junto a la última de sus monarcas.

Introduction and Royals: Minutes 0 to 9:15: We will have an episode out next week and will be off on September 24th. We just heard about the Queen passing in Balmoral right before our recording. It's unclear if her family was able to see her before she passed. Chandra explains that King Charles' coronation will be 8 to 12 months from now. Camilla will be Queen consort and many people don't like that. We wonder how this will affect the royal biographies coming out this fall. Harry and Meghan are in Europe for preplanned events. Harry flew to Balmoral while Meghan stayed back in Windsor. Kate similarly stayed behind although her children just started school, as we saw in a photoshoot they did at Lambrook. It's likely that Kate and William will move into the bigger house at Windsor soon now that the Queen has passed. The big news last week when we were off was Meghan's interview with The Cut, in which she said she didn't have an NDA and hinted that there was a lot she could say. Charles is trying to make peace with the Sussexes while Harry and William's relationship seems irreparably damaged. Omid Scobie  wrote that William wants Harry to apologize for talking about their family life, while Harry wants William to take responsibility for the lines that William crossed. Olivia Wilde and Don't Worry Darling: Minutes 9:15 to 18 We've heard for some time that Don't Worry Darling director Olivia Wilde and star Florence Pugh had a quiet beef. Florence wasn't saying much and she wasn't liking any of Olivia's posts about the movie. Olivia did an interview with Variety in which she claimed to have fired Shia LaBeouf to protect Florence. Shia released a video message Olivia left him asking him to return to the production and saying “I think this might be a bit of a wake-up call for Miss Flo.” Florence announced that she wouldn't do press at Venice for the movie. She was seen out looking unbothered while Olivia refused to answer press questions about the feud. Florence received a lot of support from the cast at the premiere. She and Olivia Wilde avoided each other. Olivia is on the cover of Vanity Fair and had to be reinterviewed in light of the details that came out about how she was lying about firing Shia. We wonder why she hasn't been advised to stay quiet. At the screening it looked like Harry Styles spit on Chris Pine when he was going to sit down, which Chris's rep officially denied but then sources close to Chris told TMZ “it absolutely did happen, and was perceived as a sign of disrespect by Chris.” Florence posted a photo where she's getting her hair done by a stylist with a “Miss Flo” t-shirt on. Now we're hearing that Florence and Chris aren't going to the NYC premiere. Drama seems to follow Olivia Wilde and we wonder if she's still with Harry Styles. Chandra thinks they'll announce a breakup after the film comes out. Comments of the week: Minutes 18 to end Chandra's comment of the week is from ThatsNotOkay on the post about Chris Pine and Florence Pugh skipping the New York premiere for DWD. My comment of the week is from Normades on the post about Leonardo DiCaprio breaking up with Camila Marrone because he doesn't want to get married. We remember when we heard Julianne Hough's niece dish that he's bad in bed. Thanks for listening bitches!

“The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon,” the palace said in a stark, two-line statement affixed to the front gate of Buckingham Palace. “The King and Queen Consort will  remain at Balmoral this evening and return to London tomorrow,” it said, referring to Charles and his wife, Camilla. In itself, the queen's death is a watershed moment. But it also comes at a time of acute uncertainty in Britain. A new prime minister, Liz Truss, has been in office for only three days, following months of political turmoil in the British government. The country faces its gravest economic threats in a generation, besieged by inflation, soaring energy bills and the specter of a prolonged recession. The death of Elizabeth sets in motion a royal transition more complicated than any change in prime ministers. It will be meticulously choreographed in its rituals, but what kind of monarchy it will produce is a mystery. At 73, Charles is the oldest person to become monarch in British history — a familiar figure, to be sure — but one who has made clear he wants to transform the nature of the royal family.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

An Irish teacher has been jailed for refusing to call a boy a girl, Queen Elizabeth II has died, and jail time is being threatened in Europe for turning the heat up too high this winter. … and more on today’s CrossPolitic Daily News Brief. My name is Toby Sumpter and today is Friday, September 9, 2022. https://nypost.com/2022/09/06/teacher-enoch-burke-jailed-over-trans-pronouns-flap/ A teacher in Ireland has been suspended from work and then jailed for contempt of court after he refused to use the correct pronouns to address a transgender student. Enoch Burke was arrested on Monday for violating a court order barring him from teaching at Wilson’s Hospital School in Westmeath, or even being present there, the news site RTE.ie reported. Judge Michael Quinn found Burke guilty of violating an order made by the High Court last week and sent him to Mountjoy Prison, where he will remain until either he purges his contempt or the court gives further orders. The teacher remained defiant in the face of jail time, telling the judge that “it is insanity” that he would be led out of the courtroom and taken to prison for refusing to give up his Christian beliefs. “I love my school, with its motto Res Non Verba, ‘Actions not words,’ but I am here today because I said I would not call a boy a girl,” Burke told the court. The scandal surrounding Burke began unfolding after the educator, who teaches history, politics and German at the school in Multyfarnham, County Westmeath, refused to address a transitioning student as “they” instead of “he.” Burke’s stance prompted school officials to place him on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of a disciplinary process. But the teacher refused to stay away from campus, despite an injunction that was issued barring him from going to the school, or attempting to teach. On Friday, the judge issued an order to arrest Burke after he was found sitting in an empty classroom at the school. Burke was taken into custody at the school on Monday and taken directly to court, where he told the judge he could not comply with the injunction because it would violate his conscience. “I am a teacher and I don’t want to go to prison,” Burke told the court. “I want to be in my classroom today, that’s where I was this morning when I was arrested.” He added: “Transgenderism is against my Christian belief. It is contrary to the scriptures, contrary to the ethos of the Church of Ireland and of my school.” FLF Conference Plug Do you like Jesus & beer?

She died peacefully on Thursday afternoon at her Scottish estate, where she had spent much of the summer. The Queen came to the throne in 1952 and witnessed enormous social change. Her son King Charles III said the death of his beloved mother was a "moment of great sadness" for him and his family and that her loss would be "deeply felt" around the world. He said: "We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished sovereign and a much-loved mother. "I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world." During the coming period of mourning, he said he and his family would be "comforted and sustained by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection in which the Queen was so widely held". The King and his wife, Camilla, now Queen Consort, will return to London on Friday, Buckingham Palace said. Senior royals had gathered at Balmoral after the Queen's doctors became concerned about her health earlier in the day. All the Queen's children travelled to Balmoral, near Aberdeen, after doctors placed the Queen under medical supervision. Her grandson and now heir to the throne, Prince William, and his brother, Prince Harry, also gathered there. Prime Minister Liz Truss, who was appointed by the Queen on Tuesday, said the monarch was the rock on which modern Britain was built, who had "provided us with the stability and strength that we needed". Speaking about the new King, she said: "We offer him our loyalty and devotion, just as his mother devoted so much, to so many, for so long. "And with the passing of the second Elizabethan age, we usher in a new era in the magnificent history of our great country, exactly as Her Majesty would have wished, by saying the words 'God save the King'." https://twitter.com/realchrisrufo/status/1567928907411910656?s=20&t=jRqdyIeyvfjUj4nDBZFGsg Meanwhile, earlier this morning Uju Anya, Critical Race Theorist at Carnegie Mellon University tweeted: “I heard the chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidl empire is finally dying. May her pain be excruciating.” Twitter did delete the Tweet as violating its rules, but i a follow up tweet she wrote: “If anyone expects me to express anything but disdain for the monarch who supervised a government that sponsored the genocide that massacred and displaced half my family and the consequences of which those alive today are still trying to overcome, you can keep wishing upon a star.” Another tweet insists that Queen Elizabeth was not a remnant of colonial times but an active participant in colonialism, “she actively tried to stop independence movements & she tried to keep newly independent colonies form leaving the commonwealth. The evil she did was enough” and a video is linked to an elderly Kenyan woman who says she was tortured with axes during Kenya’s struggle for independence from British colonial rule. The woman in the video demands that Elizabeth pay her back for what was done to to her. Uju Anya writes so-called “anti-racist” curriculum for public schools as well as Diversity Equity and Inclusion training materials. I’m sure it’s doing a lot of good. Not really. The simple point I want to make here is that this is a great example of how CRT is not helping anyone at all. Let’s grant the possibility that the history is being presented accurately here. I suspect that there might be more to it than is being presented, but let’s just grant it for the sake of the argument. You cannot build families, cultures, or nations on this kind of exacting demand for justice. You cannot get it. It’s not possible. And it’s not possible for two reasons at least: first, you can’t quantify the damage and harm and hurt. Can you put that woman’s tears in a bottle and measure them out? When would it be enough? It would never be enough. And second, what standard would you use to measure anyway? By what standard? If you appeal to Darwin, you just threw away your standard. If you appeal to Marx, then you are only appealing to a momentary revolution and you’re condemned to eternal feuding, since once the oppressed class gets put in charge they will no doubt oppress the previously ruling class, and we will just play see-saw with revenge. The only way out of this is the blood of Jesus. The only way out of this tailspin of feuding bitterness and rage and spite and hate is through forgiveness in the blood of Christ. This is true for England, America, and Kenya, and all the nations of the earth. There will be blood. The only question is whose blood and will it be efficacious blood. The blood of Jesus is efficacious. It actually takes away sin and guilt. It actually allows you to lay down your arms, lay down your vengeance, and forgive. May Uju Anja, the people of Kenya, and all people find peace in the Cross of Christ. As the Queen herself once said, “History teaches us we… need saving from ourselves, from our recklessness or our greed.

The cost of natural gas in Europe has increased more than tenfoldamid the fallout from the Russian invasion of Ukraine, while Russia severed natural gas shipments through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline last week. According to a report from Swiss news outlet Blick, the nation’s Federal Law on National Economic Supply permits authorities to fine and imprison residents who consume too much gas if energy rationing becomes necessary. Those who fail to comply with the temperature mandates could receive sanctions between 30 and 3,000 Swiss francs, the equivalent of $31 and $3,090, Federal Department of Finance spokesman Markus Spörndli told the outlet. Those found intentionally violating the statute would receive up to three years in prison, and those found with negligent violations could be forced to pay 180 days’ worth of fines. Beyond the temperature controls, residents will be unable to heat swimming pools, saunas, radiant heaters, or warm air tents, while hot water will not be allowed to reach temperatures above 60 degrees Celsius, or 140 degrees Fahrenheit. The member states of the Swiss Confederacy have until September 22 to voice concerns over the law. In the United States, a heatwave that has threatened power supplies in California led utility company Xcel Energy to lock the thermostats of 22,000 people in Colorado at 78 degrees Fahrenheit in the interest of protecting grid capacity. The residents had previously opted into an incentive program that let the firm “ease the strain on the electrical grid” during the “hottest summer days.” The European Union has adopted the official policy of becoming “a climate-neutral society” by 2050 in accordance with the European Green Deal and the Paris Agreement. Citing the failure of hydropower facilities amid drought conditions, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen likewise proposed a “mandatory target” for reducing usage in the European Union, of which Switzerland is not a member. “If you look at the costs of electricity, there are peak demands. And this is what is expensive, because, in these peak demands, the expensive gas comes into the market,” she commented on Wednesday. “So what we have to do is to flatten the curve and avoid the peak demands. We will propose a mandatory target for reducing electricity use at peak hours.” Flatten the curve. Where have we heard that language before?

He said: "We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished sovereign and a much-loved mother. "I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world." During the coming period of mourning, he said he and his family would be "comforted and sustained by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection in which the Queen was so widely held". The King and his wife, Camilla, now Queen Consort, will return to London on Friday, Buckingham Palace said. Senior royals had gathered at Balmoral after the Queen's doctors became concerned about her health earlier in the day. All the Queen's children travelled to Balmoral, near Aberdeen, after doctors placed the Queen under medical supervision. Her grandson and now heir to the throne, Prince William, and his brother, Prince Harry, also gathered there. Prime Minister Liz Truss, who was appointed by the Queen on Tuesday, said the monarch was the rock on which modern Britain was built, who had "provided us with the stability and strength that we needed". Speaking about the new King, she said: "We offer him our loyalty and devotion, just as his mother devoted so much, to so many, for so long. "And with the passing of the second Elizabethan age, we usher in a new era in the magnificent history of our great country, exactly as Her Majesty would have wished, by saying the words 'God save the King'." https://twitter.com/realchrisrufo/status/1567928907411910656?s=20&t=jRqdyIeyvfjUj4nDBZFGsg Meanwhile, earlier this morning Uju Anya, Critical Race Theorist at Carnegie Mellon University tweeted: “I heard the chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidl empire is finally dying. May her pain be excruciating.” Twitter did delete the Tweet as violating its rules, but i a follow up tweet she wrote: “If anyone expects me to express anything but disdain for the monarch who supervised a government that sponsored the genocide that massacred and displaced half my family and the consequences of which those alive today are still trying to overcome, you can keep wishing upon a star.” Another tweet insists that Queen Elizabeth was not a remnant of colonial times but an active participant in colonialism, “she actively tried to stop independence movements & she tried to keep newly independent colonies form leaving the commonwealth. The evil she did was enough” and a video is linked to an elderly Kenyan woman who says she was tortured with axes during Kenya’s struggle for independence from British colonial rule. The woman in the video demands that Elizabeth pay her back for what was done to to her. Uju Anya writes so-called “anti-racist” curriculum for public schools as well as Diversity Equity and Inclusion training materials. I’m sure it’s doing a lot of good. Not really. The simple point I want to make here is that this is a great example of how CRT is not helping anyone at all. Let’s grant the possibility that the history is being presented accurately here. I suspect that there might be more to it than is being presented, but let’s just grant it for the sake of the argument. You cannot build families, cultures, or nations on this kind of exacting demand for justice. You cannot get it. It’s not possible. And it’s not possible for two reasons at least: first, you can’t quantify the damage and harm and hurt. Can you put that woman’s tears in a bottle and measure them out? When would it be enough? It would never be enough. And second, what standard would you use to measure anyway? By what standard? If you appeal to Darwin, you just threw away your standard. If you appeal to Marx, then you are only appealing to a momentary revolution and you’re condemned to eternal feuding, since once the oppressed class gets put in charge they will no doubt oppress the previously ruling class, and we will just play see-saw with revenge. The only way out of this is the blood of Jesus. The only way out of this tailspin of feuding bitterness and rage and spite and hate is through forgiveness in the blood of Christ. This is true for England, America, and Kenya, and all the nations of the earth. There will be blood. The only question is whose blood and will it be efficacious blood. The blood of Jesus is efficacious. It actually takes away sin and guilt. It actually allows you to lay down your arms, lay down your vengeance, and forgive. May Uju Anja, the people of Kenya, and all people find peace in the Cross of Christ. As the Queen herself once said, “History teaches us we… need saving from ourselves, from our recklessness or our greed. God sent into the world… neither a philosopher or a general… but a Saviour with the power to forgive.” Classical Conversations Classical Conversations supports homeschooling parents by cultivating the love of learning through a Christian worldview in fellowship with other families.

The cost of natural gas in Europe has increased more than tenfoldamid the fallout from the Russian invasion of Ukraine, while Russia severed natural gas shipments through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline last week. According to a report from Swiss news outlet Blick, the nation’s Federal Law on National Economic Supply permits authorities to fine and imprison residents who consume too much gas if energy rationing becomes necessary. Those who fail to comply with the temperature mandates could receive sanctions between 30 and 3,000 Swiss francs, the equivalent of $31 and $3,090, Federal Department of Finance spokesman Markus Spörndli told the outlet. Those found intentionally violating the statute would receive up to three years in prison, and those found with negligent violations could be forced to pay 180 days’ worth of fines. Beyond the temperature controls, residents will be unable to heat swimming pools, saunas, radiant heaters, or warm air tents, while hot water will not be allowed to reach temperatures above 60 degrees Celsius, or 140 degrees Fahrenheit. The member states of the Swiss Confederacy have until September 22 to voice concerns over the law. In the United States, a heatwave that has threatened power supplies in California led utility company Xcel Energy to lock the thermostats of 22,000 people in Colorado at 78 degrees Fahrenheit in the interest of protecting grid capacity. The residents had previously opted into an incentive program that let the firm “ease the strain on the electrical grid” during the “hottest summer days.” The European Union has adopted the official policy of becoming “a climate-neutral society” by 2050 in accordance with the European Green Deal and the Paris Agreement. Citing the failure of hydropower facilities amid drought conditions, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen likewise proposed a “mandatory target” for reducing usage in the European Union, of which Switzerland is not a member. “If you look at the costs of electricity, there are peak demands. And this is what is expensive, because, in these peak demands, the expensive gas comes into the market,” she commented on Wednesday. “So what we have to do is to flatten the curve and avoid the peak demands. We will propose a mandatory target for reducing electricity use at peak hours.” Flatten the curve. Where have we heard that language before?

Britain's new Prime Minister Liz Truss met with the queen in Balmoral on Tuesday where she was officially appointed to office. In a speech at 10 Downing Street on Tuesday afternoon, Truss promised to tackle the energy crisis and the ailing economy. The risk of a nuclear accident at Ukraine's Zaporizhzhia power plant is growing, according to a new report by the International Atomic Energy Agency. The report describes damage to the special building that houses fresh nuclear fuel and the solid radioactive waste storage facility. Also, on Sunday, roughly 62% of Chileans rejected a new constitution, written from scratch, to replace an old one imposed by the dictatorship of Gen. Augusto Pinochet 41 years ago.
