Speedy Pummelling

The Bee:


Non-Prince Harry is now fully a US resident.

And Harry continues doing the laying about that Americans just won't do.

Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, has formally confirmed he is now a US resident.

The acknowledgment is said to underscore the prince's increasing estrangement from Britain, after he and his wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, walked away from royal duties four years ago.

A travel company he controls has filed paperwork this week informing British authorities that he has moved and is now "usually resident" in the United States.

The paperwork was filed by Travalyst Ltd, a company at least 75% owned by Harry and which was founded in 2020 to "to promote global awareness of the importance of sustainable tourism".

Meahwhile, a "royal expert" says that more employees of the monarchy will come forward with stories of being "bullied" by Meghan Markle.

Royal expert Tom Bower, author of "Revenge: Meghan, Harry, and the War Between the Windsors," believes more information about Meghan Markle's alleged bullying will come to light now that a former aide has officially spoken out.

"The trickle of information will, soon enough, become a stream," he wrote in an editorial for the Daily Mail, published Tuesday.

Bower's statement comes one week after former palace aide Samantha Cohen confirmed in an interview with the Australian Herald Sun that she was one of 10 staffers who were questioned about allegations that Markle, 42, "bullied" staffers during her time in the palace.

In 2017, Cohen, who had previously worked for Queen Elizabeth, was tasked with getting Markle ready for the royal family.

Bower wrote on Tuesday, "Certainly, I believe that Ms. Cohen was soon exasperated, within six months or so, and that Meghan either disagreed with, or failed to understand, the non-negotiable elements of royalty. I also believe that members of Samantha Cohen's team viewed this as an irresponsible self-indulgence. Both sides would blame a clash of cultures."

Cohen, who resigned in 2018, said that she was "treated harshly" and compared her former job to "working with teenagers," according to "Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown" by Valentine Low.

I'm telling you it's a slow news day. I almost made these two piece-of-shit stories their own post.

The Voyager probe had stopped sending data and was Mostly Dead. But now scientists have remotely fixed it, and it's sending data again.

Turns out all they had to do was try turning it off and then back on.

The US space agency says its Voyager-1 probe is once again sending usable information back to Earth after months of spouting gibberish.

The 46-year-old Nasa spacecraft is humanity's most distant object.

A computer fault stopped it returning readable data in November but engineers have now fixed this.

For the moment, Voyager is sending back only health data about its onboard systems, but further work should get the scientific instruments back online.

Voyager-1 is more than 24 billion km (15 billion miles) away, so distant, its radio messages take fully 22.5 hours to reach us.

"Voyager-1 spacecraft is returning usable data about the health and status of its onboard engineering systems," Nasa said in a statement.

"The next step is to enable the spacecraft to begin returning science data again."

Weirdly, it says its new mission is to "find Creator Kirk." No idea what that means. I guess we'll find out!

A woman riding the LA Metro died after being slashed and stabbed in the neck by a homeless man. No big deal, just all part of California's plan to bring "a diversity of travel outcomes" to riders.

A homeless man with a criminal record was arrested for the stabbing death of an unidentified woman on the Los Angeles Metro train system while she was on her way home from work on Monday morning, officials with the Los Angeles Police Department say. Forty-five-year-old Elliot T. Nowden was arrested for the murder and robbery of the unidentified female victim, who was found with a stab wound in the neck at the Studio City station. Advertisement

According to police, Nowden approached the 50-year-old victim while still on the train and repeatedly stabbed and slashed her throat before taking her purse. The victim was able to get off the train at the Studio City Station, where she collapsed from her wounds. Police say LA City Fire officials were dispatched to the platform at approximately 4:59 Monday morning regarding a person down call. While responding to the call, dispatchers were updated with several calls stating that the victim was bleeding, but no one approached the victim to ascertain anything about her condition. When authorities arrived, they found the victim bleeding from her neck and transported her to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Cameras located at the station were able to record most of the incident on video and show Nowden leaving the scene immediately after. Police officers were able to apprehend Nowden approximately 30 minutes later, roughly half a mile from the scene of the crime. After being interviewed by homicide detectives, Nowden was subsequently arrested and charged with murder and held on $2 million bail.

Holding a killer on bail -- now there's an innovative concept.

Germany has passed a law facilitating gender transitions for children This is just about as young as five years old.

This is all about what the kids are telling us, right? Not what their genderblending teachers and evil parents are telling them, right?


The German Parliament, or Bundestag, passed one of the world's most far-reaching sex self-determination policies on April 12, despite protests from women's rights campaigners. The Self-Determination Act (SBGG) establishes 'gender identity' as a protected characteristic and allows parents to change the sex marker on their children's documents from birth.

That's misleading, and why I didn't publish this earlier. It lets parents change their child's sex from birth but not at birth. That is, they can go back in time and change the (paper) gender of their children as if it was determined to be the opposite gender at the time of birth.

But they only have to wait until the kid is five years old to do this.

Five year olds are fully-grown adults with mature minds, right?

Supported by Chancellor Olaf Scholz's three-party coalition and promoted and supported by the Socialist Democratic Party (SDP), the SBGG also creates the potential for citizens to be fined up to €10,000 (approx. $10,800 USD) for revealing a person's given name and birth sex without their permission -- an action that trans activists staunchly oppose and refer to as 'deadnaming.'

But arguably the most troubling aspect of the law relates to a portion of the bill which permits parents to alter the recorded sex of children beginning from birth. From the age of five years old, it allows for name and sex changes if there is "mutual consent" between the child and their parents.

Oh, and it lets you change your gender ever single year, but only once per year. If you decide you're a woman in April but then decide you're a non-binary trans-trending male in August, sorry, buddy, but you'll have to wait until the following April to make that official.


Crucially, the law includes a ban on disclosure that prohibits naming the sex and former birth name of an individual. This prohibition also applies to family members in the SBGG. Anyone who violates the ban on disclosure will face a fine of up to €10,000, which could discourage family members from coming forward to discuss how the identity change impacts them.

Not a threat -- just pizza and dancing!

The Real Mike Rowe @mikeroweworks

For a guy who runs a foundation that sends young people to trade schools all over America -- trade schools where I'm pleased to report, no one is calling for the extermination of Jews -- today's headlines are once again offering another excellent reason to consider redirecting whatever financial support you might earmark for the Ivy League, to the mikeroweWORKS Foundation. Why? Because the Ivy League has truly lost its mind.

Consider the latest madness at Columbia University, where the president, Minochuhe Shafik, has announced a new round of remote learning - effective immediately - in response to a noisy rabble of thugs and bullies calling for the eradication of Israel.
If I had a kid at Columbia, I'd be livid. It's simply mind-boggling that the president of this university would rather consign her students to another crucible of remote learning, than permanently expel the protesters. I mean, seriously, what does it take to get expelled from Columbia? These creeps are on camera, literally screaming into the faces of Jewish students.

"They yelled at us to go back to Poland, said we have no culture, and chanted, 'Strike, strike Tel Aviv," said one terrified student. Followed by, "Burn Tel Aviv to the ground," "Go Hamas, we love you, we support your rockets, too."

In a now-infamous image, one demonstrator appeared before a group of counter-protesters holding Israeli and American flags with a sign pointing in their direction that read, "Al-Qasam's next targets."

That's what you get for $68,000 a year at Columbia -- an administration who cowers in the face of thugs and bullies, and a university president who would rather make your kids try to learn off campus, than take a truly hard line with those students calling for the murder of Jews. For the love of God, expel them. Calling for murder is not protected speech.

Via Instapundit, the Telegraph reports that this honey of a firethrowing robotic dog is now on sale.

Called the Thermonator, the four-legged robot comes equipped with an ARC Flamethrower mounted on its back, which is capable of shooting jets of fire up to 30 feet.

Designed by Ohio-based firm Throwflame, the $9,420 (L7,600) robot is not advertised as a weapon, with the manufacturer suggesting possible uses include wildlife control, snow and ice removal and general entertainment.
