Macron Throws Fully Armede Troops Into Action Against Yellow Vfest Protestors

Yellow Vests protest in Paris

French soldiers will be sent into action against Yellow Vest protestors for the first time this weekend as the protests against the Macron government reach their ninetenth week. Some reports out of France suggest the military are being told to avoid protesters, while others indicate they have been given permission to open fire if the protestors threaten the lives of soldiers or police. Our girl in France, Cleo Hart, says the move seems to have heightened tensions between government and people.

According to various print and broadcast news outlets the soldiers have been redeployed from anti-terror Operations duties, and are expected to be stationed around national and municipal government buildings and other sensitive areas rather than engaged in law enforcement and riot control duties, but communication about the exact role they will have in controlling riots has been vague, according to Le Point.

The military deployment, which follows renewed violence last Saturday and the Emmanuel Macron government’s decision to ban protesters from the Champs-Elysees and other French city centres this Saturday, has been slammed by many, including Les Republicans senator Bruno Retailleau, who labelled it a fatal decision.”

“It’s a turning point, it’s mostly a failure! I do not know if we used the army in ’68, I do not remember, but using the army, including in static form to protect buildings, is extremely dangerous,” he said.

“The military is not trained in policing. They are trained in combat, to kill and neutralize. This decision is absolutely deplorable.”

“In what European democracy is the army called in to police a social movement?” added Raphaël Glucksmann, who will lead France’s Socialist Party, for which President Macron was a government minister under predecessor François Hollande, in the upcoming European Parliament elections.

Thousands March to Save the Internet from EU Censorship Regulations

Protestors opposed to Article 13 in Berlin

Tens of thousands of people have marched in cities across Germany to protest planned European Union copyright reforms that they fear will lead to online censorship.

The dpa news agency reports the biggest protest Saturday was in Munich, where 40,000 people marched under the motto “save your internet.”

Thousands of others took part in smaller demonstrations in the German cities of Cologne, Hamburg, Hannover, Berlin and other cities against the bill that is being voted on this week.

The most controversial clause, Article 13, which applies to information whose main or one of the main purposes is to store and give the public access to a large amount of copyright protected work uploaded by its users which it organises and promotes for profit. Article 13 does not apply to non - profit encyclopedias, educational and scientific repositories and other non profit services.

Creative Commons the content licensing organisation that addresses internet sharing licences specifically posted this tweet: There’s no doubt #Article13 will force most EU platforms to implement #uploadfilters. These technologies simply cannot distinguish between infringing and non-infringing uses of a work. Creativity and freedom of expression will suffer. https://www.communia-association.org/2019/03/05/final-x-ray-article-13-dangerous-legislative-wishful-thinking/ …

The most controversial section would compel sites such as YouTube and Facebook to take responsibility for copyrighted material that’s uploaded to their platforms. Proponents say the new rules will help ensure authors, artists and journalists are paid. Opponents claim they could restrict freedom of speech, hamper online creativity and force websites to install filters.


German Alarm Grows Over EU Determination To Punish Britain For Leaving

The business community and conservative politicians in Germany are becoming more annd more hostile towards the way Brussels is trying to force the UK Parliament to accept the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement (which some say was drafted by arch Federalist Angela Merkel,) as a fundamental failure of European statecraft that can lead only to a diplomatic catastrophe and long term animosity between the EU and one of Germany's largest expot customers.

If the EU’s aggressive policy causes a geostrategic rupture with a pillar of the European defence, security, and financial system, as it surely must under existing terms the unelected bureaucrats of the EU Commission are trying to force on Britain, the recriminations in Berlin will be ugly.

“Europe is well on the way to inflicting huge damage on itself for decades by the way it has handled the failed Brexit talks,” said Marcel Fratzscher, head of the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW).

The Article 50 process may give the EU legal and psychological leverage as the cliff-edge nears but this does not make it is wise to exploit that power. “Not just the British but the whole European Union will pay an immense price unless EU leaders make a fair offer under plausible terms,” he said.

Professor Fratzscher believes the EU is undermining its democratic legitimacy by demanding that Westminster MPs swallow the deal offered by Michel Barnier with a “gun to their chest” and subject to threats of “catastrophic consequences” after two-thirds of British lawmakers have already rejected it. What the EU is doing, from spite rather than a desire to help the Irish leader Leo Varadkar reunite Ireland, is insist that a soft border between The Republic of Ireland and Ulster, which remains part of the United Kingdom, is not acceptable. Yet such soft borders work elsewhere, between Sweden and Norway, between Switzerland and its EU neighbours Germany, France, Italy and Austria.

Parliament is justified in rejecting an arrangement such as the proposed Irish backstop, that would lock UK in a customs union against its will. “No sovereign nation could agree to such terms lightly. The Bundestag itself could hardly have voted otherwise in comparable circumstances,” Fratzscher wrote in Der Spiegel this week. He also argues that if MPs capitulate and accept the Withdrawal Agreement this would be “just as catastrophic” as a no-deal Brexit.

It is an obvious political absurdity to try to contain a military power with a large industrial economy in the EU’s regulatory and legal orbit without that powerful nation having EU voting rights. This must blow up in acrimony and end in an abrogation crisis. Fratzscher obviously reads this publication, our editor Ian has often written that the way to reselve the brexit crisis is to station Royal Navy Type 45 Destroyers in the mouth of The Rhine, The Seine and The Elbe and wipe several large EU cities off the map. It's a simplistic solution but at least it would get their full attention.

Needless to say, the ‘game theory’ calculus for Brussels has been greatly influenced by signals from Parliament, the Cabinet Office, and powerful forces within the British economic establishment that Brexit could be eviscerated or reversed altogether.

Sigmar Gabriel, Germany’s vice-chancellor until last year, says Europe can’t afford the luxury of a total eonomic and military break with Britain. The EU is split politically on multiple lines of - North-South over money, East-West over the rule of law, and elite - people over immigration, taxes, Islamification and the erosion of democracy - and is surrounded by dangerous neighbours.

When the British voters delivered their message of 'shock and awe' to the EU in June 2016, Europe, already aware of the rumblings of discontent throughout the union ought to have steppee back and taken stock, and recognizing that the Monnet - expresswayto a federal European Superstate (EU Acquis) and centralization of power on a committee of unelected bureaucrats in Brussels was no longer viable. It could have come up with a system for a two tier Europe, with Germany and France, along with Belgium and Luxembourg moving towards a single political entity called Greater Germany while ring of countries on the outer fringes of Europe had partial membership of the club on sovereign terms.

This was the plan for a “Continental Partnership” - first for Britain but then as a model for Ukraine, Turkey, and others - put forward by a roster of leading European figures for the Bruegel think tank in Brussels. Among the authors was Emmanuel Macron’s top economic adviser Jean Pisani-Ferry. It was shot down in flames. Mr Macron said Britain had to pay a price for its apostasy, and be seen to pay a price. In fact it the the idiotic boy - president Macron who is paying the price for his bettrayal of French sovereignty as the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow vests) protests against Macron's federralism, high taxes, immigration and surrender of French sovereignty to Brussels tear France apart and threaten to bring down the government.

Theresa May's New Contempt Of Parliament Scandal

On a day that saw her government defeated three times in House of Commons votes on key Brexit issues, a new scandal has erupted around Theresa May's dishonest and duplicitous mismanagement of the Brexit process.

Finn Academic Makes "Moral Case" For Letting People Decide Their Own Age

Authored by Edyta Wolk via The College Fix,

A recent article published in The Journal of Medical Ethics by a Finnish bio-ethicist made a moral case for the legal change of a person’s age to correspond with that person’s “experienced age.” The piece, by Joona Räsänen of the University of Oslo in Norway, titled “A Moral Case for Legal Age Change,” concludes that there are three scenarios when a change to one’s legal age should be allowed:

When “the person genuinely feels his age differs significantly from his chronological age,” when “the person’s biological age is recognized to be significantly different from his chronological age,” and when “age change would likely prevent, stop or reduce ageism, discrimination due to age, he would otherwise face.”

Räsänen differentiates between “chronological” age, or how long the person has actually lived; “biological age,” or the state of one’s body; and “emotional” age, the age as which one identifies.

“Legal age is a cause of severe discrimination for some people whose biological and emotional age do not match their chronological age,” he argues.

In an interview with The College Fix, Räsänen said:

“Age is (for some people at least) an important part of their identity. People can identify themselves as older or younger than they actually (chronologically) are…I do not deny people’s own experiences.”

When asked by The Fix how biological age might be distinguished from chronological age, Räsänen was unable to clarify. “I am not a biologist or medical doctor so I cannot give a definite answer here. I believe this is something biologists and medical doctors should consider and decide together with philosophers and bioethicists.”

“Psychologists and psychiatrists should be consulted when a person wants to change her age, such as they are consulted when a person wants to change her sex. How exactly this should be done? I am not sure … but for now, I would say that similar psychological tests should be done when (someone) wants to change her sex,” he said.

When asked, Räsänen also explained how he thinks certain potential abuses, such as a pedophile’s changing his legal age to get around statutory rape laws, could be avoided.

“Children cannot consent to sex, and that explains why sex with a child is wrong. But if an eight-year-old cannot consent to have sex with a 18-year-old or with a 80-year-old it seems that she cannot consent to have sex with another 8-year-old either.”

“If a paedophile changes his age into eight to molest children, it is still unethical for him to have sex with someone who chronologically is eight (because it is unethical for two eight-year-olds to have sex with each other).”

He said that another way to avoid such abuses is “to propose upper and lower limits for age change.”

“For example, perhaps age change should be allowed only when the new age of a person is going to be something between 18-60,” he said. “Maybe there also should be an age limit for the age change, so that a child could not change her age.”

Räsänen acknowledged that his argument was a moral one and that “there are some practical problems … on how to implement the idea of age change into practice.”

“I believe that these problems can be solved. I believe that legal age change could be, in some cases, beneficial for the age change candidate and, for example, changing age could offer an additional way to fight against discrimination of the elderly. Perhaps it does not work eventually, but maybe it is worth to try.”

The Fix reached out to multiple LGBT experts and campus centers at U.S. universities, inquiring as to whether trans-ageism as outlined by Räsänen is considered a comparable phenomenon to transgenderism, in which individuals born as men and women declare themselves women and men, respectively. None of the centers or experts responded.

Macron Moves Against yellow Vests, Bans Protests In Neighborhoods With "Ultra" Radicals

France is cracking down on "yellow vest" protesters following a weekend of renewed violence - as the Macron administration announced on Monday that it would ban demonstration in several areas of France - including the Champs Elysees in Paris, if "ultra elements" are present, according to Interior Minister Edouard Philippe.

'We will ban demonstrations if ultra elements' are present, said Philippe, according to CNEWS.

The ban will apply to "neighborhoods that have been most affected as soon as we have knowledge of" the "ultras."

"I am thinking of course the Champs-Elysees in Paris, the place Pey-Berland in Bordeaux, the Capitol Square in Toulouse", Philippe added, where "we will proceed to the immediate dispersal of all groups."

Philippe added that he has asked the State Judicial Agent to "systematically seek the financial responsibility of troublemakers."


Media Silence Surrounds Muslim Massacre of Christians

While the world united in an frenzy of outrage (whipped up by mainstream media) at the killing of 50 (and counting) Muslim worshippers in a Mosque in New Zealand this week there was not a whisper about a far bigger numerically at least, massacre of Christians by Muslims in Nigeria.

The mosque attacks were unarguably an atrocity worthy of universal condemnation. Presidents, prime ministers, royalty, and religious leaders rushed to extend their condolences to victims and their families — as well they should — while decrying the hate that purportedly motivated the shootings.

Without exception, the mainstream media gave top billing to the shootings, with newspapers carrying the story on their front pages and television news channels leading off their broadcasts with the story. But we should not forget the crime was committed by, according to the evidence released so far, a lone nutter who may have had one or two supporters who indirectly helped. It was not part of an organised religious war.

The most bizarre aspect of news coverage of crimes inspired by religion this week was not, in fact, the attention paid to a heinous crime committed in New Zealand, but the absolute silence surrounding the simultaneous massacre of scores of Christians by Muslim militants in Africa.

As right - wing Breitbart News reported, Fulani jihadists have racked up a death toll of over 120 Christians over the past three weeks in central Nigeria, employing machetes and gunfire to slaughter men, women, and children, burning down over 140 houses, destroying property, and spreading terror.

There are several possible explanations for this remarkable silence, all of which should concern reasonable, fair minded people. It is well documented that over the past few years, Muslim radicals have killed Christians (and Hindus, Buddhists, secular humanists, Shinto and shamanistic animists,) around the world with alarming frequency, perhaps one more slaughter, and in backward, corrupt Africa, did not seem particularly newsworthy to the editors and PR teams at major news outlets. Muslims being killed, on the other hand, may strike many as newsworthy firstly because it is so rare and secondly because it happened in New Zealand, a peaceful, tolerant, liberal country.

Another motive for the media's blanking news of the massacre of Christians in Nigeria may be geo-political and racial. New Zealand is a first-world country where such things are not supposed to happen, whereas many people still consider Africa to be an uncivilised place where brutality and mass killings are commonplace. The slaughter of black Christians in Africa may not ignite sufficient rage among virtue signalling liberals in the west the way a mass shooting of white and brown Muslims in New Zealand would.

Or perhaps it is simply a case of media companies fearing a Charlie-Hebdo-style attack on their premises and staff if they report the truth about Islam.

Finally, a story about Muslims killing people for not being Muslims, or for being the wrong kind of muslim, simply does not play to the political agenda that many mainstream media would like to advance. How much mileage can be gained from Muslims murdering Christians, when Christians in America and Europe are seen as an obstacle to the “progress” twoards a multicultural society under a global government desired by liberals and the Davosocracy? The left sees Christians in the United States as part of the problem and seeks to undermine their credibility and influence at every turn rather than emboldening them.

Anti-Christian bias has been rightly called “the last acceptable prejudice,” one that few bother condemning. “No one much cares about offending Christians,” wrote the coalition of African-American pastors in an essay last Tuesday. “In fact, mocking, belittling, and blaspheming Christianity is becoming a bit of a trend in our culture. Anti-Christian bigotry truly is the last acceptable prejudice.”

“The hypocrisy on display is astounding,” the pastors continued. “Christianity is the dominant religion of our country. It is the foundation of our government and morality. And yet, Christians are treated as fair game for mockery and insult.”

Christians are by far the most persecuted religious group in the world, and I say that as someone who has not 'identified' as a Christian since going through puberty, but the mainstream media routinely ignore this fact as if it were unimportant or uninteresting. As a result, many people do not even realize how widespread the persecution is or that 75 percent of the victims of religious persecution around the world are Christians.

The EU Moves Closer To Creation Of Orwellian Ministry Of Truth

The European Parliament this week rubber stamped a recommendation naming Russia “the main source of disinformation in Europe” and appealed for increased funding for the EU’s East StratCom Task Force, which already received 1.1 million euros in 2018.

The East StratCom Task Force is an EU body focused on so-called proactive communication of EU policies and activities in the Eastern neighborhood (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine) and beyond (Russia and further).

The document released by the EU Parliament reveals that East StratCom Task Force as well as its two subdivisions dealing with the southern neighborhood and Western Balkans, should get “adequate financial and personnel resources which are still required, aimed at the significant increase of their potential, effectiveness, professionalism, institutional continuity and quality of work, as well as safeguarding them against political meddling by officials and countries that back Russian disinformation.”

It also called on EU member states “to ensure that electoral laws take into account possible threats stemming from disinformation campaigns” and urged them to “adapt their electoral rules on online campaigning and to monitor and evaluate the transparency features in relation to political advertising introduced by the online platforms.”

The suggestions also include support for “independent and diverse Russian-language media in the countries of the Eastern Partnership and beyond” and “to focus on the EU accession countries and partners in the EU neighborhood by assisting them in their efforts to counteract hostile propaganda and disinformation activities.”

The formal justification of the moves suggested in the document is based on the mainstream media narrative that Russia carries out disinformation campaigns and cyber attacks on a daily basis, aimed at increasing tensions within the EU and its member states.

The proposal passed by the European Parliament is another indication that the EU bureaucracy is steadily pushing the bloc towards media and political totalitarism. The principle of freedom of speech is becoming abandoned. Most critical positions and reports are labeled "Russian propaganda and disinformation" while grassroots initiatives not loyal to the European establishment or non-mainstream media outlets are described as Russian agents.

The timing is rather bizarre however as in the USA the Mueller Inquiry, launched in the dying days of the Obama administration to investigate allegations of collaboration between President Trump's 2016 campaign team and the Russian government in order to steal the presidency from the anointed one, Hillary Clinton, has been would down having found no evidence of collaboration on the part of the Trump campaign, but plenty of evidence of malfeassance by people connected with the Clinton campaign and organisations with business links to the former first lady's charity, The Clinton Foundation.

An important factor behind the EU decision to adapt ‘electoral laws and rules’ and exploit the Russian threat is the upcoming election in the European Parliament as well as concerns of the European bureaucracy and financial circles ahead of them. It is noteworthy that most EU, US and NATO documents and declarations don’t bother themselves with providing specific examples of disinformation. Likely, the reason is that most of these ‘examples’ are reports which reveal information and viewpoints routinely hidden and suppressed by the Western mainstream media that are in fact nothing to do with Russia but simply a case of freethinkers and sceptics questioning the risible propaganda poumped out by western governments.

Topics described by the mainstream propaganda as ‘fake news’ vary in range from independent coverage of the 2015–16 New Year’s Eve sexual assaults in Cologne, the existence of no - go zones for police, emergency services and European non - Muslims in EU member state cities, and the operations of Muslim 'grooming gangs' targeting vulnerable girls for sexual abuse and exploitation, to facts provided by the Assad government and Russia regarding the Douma ‘chemical attack’ in 2018. The official Western propaganda and mainstream media outlets are hiding facts, which do not contribute to the ‘official’ point of view which is that war is good, immigration enriches European culture, and all forms of nationalism are equal to Naziism, and pushing the establishment narrative.

Recent hysteria over the so-called Russian threat will strengthen the already existing censorship further. The EU body created to combat ‘propaganda’ can and likely will be turned into the 1984-style Ministry Of Truth, rewriting reports of events to advance a political agenda. The political and business establishment does not care about the freedom, democracy, human rights and other ‘universal values’ if they obstruct its goal of creating a global, authoritarian government.

Interestingly, similar tendencies can also be observed currently in Russia. Authorities are limiting freedom of speech and civic rights of the citizens and fueling internal state propaganda under pretext of countering the ‘Western threat’. However, the Russian effort to suppress free speech has so far been much less intense that the EU's obsessive efforts to prevent the truth leaking out or the efforts by progressives and liberals of the Democratic Party in the USA to demonise Russia and silence voices opposing the politically correct authoritarianism of brack Obama and hillary Clinton.

One of the reasons behind this situation is the bogeyman mechanism inherent in modern society whether intentional or not created by the US, European states and Russia. They all exploit invented foreign threats to justify actions of their governments, involvement in regime change plots, meddling in the internal affairs of sovereign states and manipulating markets in essential goods. In most cases these activities are designed to defend interests of the ruling elites and corporate cartels. The societies are divided and narrow elite groups and their close circles are exploit those divisions to maintain their grop on power.

Socialists of 19th and 20th centuries used the term ‘class struggle’ to promote the division of the society, and where socialist revolutions were successful, the new politicak and academic elite quickly became more oppressive than the old regime.

This division between ‘capitalists’ and ‘working class’ was transformed into another field. Now, this division lies between two “new classes”:

I. ‘ordinary’ representatives of the society (small, medium and even big business oriented on the real creation of added value, real sector and office workers (blue collars), and a part of the 'clerisy', which aims at the headway creation of a new science, engineering, IT, art or culture);

II. the high and speculative financial capital, ‘new bureaucracy’, and self-proclaimed intellectuals, various kitschy and hyped artists defending interests of the previous two groups, as well as various groups of persons living on welfare despite having opportunities to get a job.

Therefore, the ongoing shift to a new technological paradigm has led to the creation of new “exploiters” and “exploited” distributed along the entire social hierarchy.

This situation is one more factor contributing to the further increase of state propaganda around the world. It is expected that rights and freedoms of the working part of the society, a trend will likely continue to gain momentum further until it reaches its expected result predetermined by the logic of social process.

Less than a day after Facebook suffered an unprecedented system crash that kept's all Facebook domains offline for hours, and just hours after the New York Times reported that a criminal investigation of its data deals is under way, and that a New York grand jury has subpoenaed records from at least two smartphones manufacturers which gained access to personal data of hundreds of millions of users via Facebook.

zuckerberg20trust20me_5 Zuckerberg - trustworthiness is not one of his strengths
Today Facebook announced that two top execs had unexpectedly quit the company.

In a blog post for employees on the company's website, Zucherberg said that he wanted "to share some important updates as we organize our company to build out the privacy-focused social platform I discussed in my note last week" adding that "embarking on this new vision represents the start of a new chapter for us", Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote that both Chris Cox, Chief Product Officer, and Chris Daniels, CEO of WhatsApp, had decided to leave the company.

For a few years, Chris has been discussing with me his desire to do something else. He is one of the most talented people I know and he has the potential to do anything he wants. But after 2016, we both realized we had too much important work to do to improve our products for society, and he stayed to help us work through these issues and help us chart a course for our family of apps going forward. At this point, we have made real progress on many issues and we have a clear plan for our apps, centered around making private messaging, stories and groups the foundation of the experience, including enabling encryption and interoperability across our services. As we embark on this next major chapter, Chris has decided now is the time to step back from leading these teams. I will really miss Chris, but mostly I am deeply grateful for everything he has done to build this place and serve our community.

Zuckerberg announced that Will Cathcart will be new head of WhatsApp, and Fidji Simo will head the Facebook app operation; meanwhile Zuck said he doesn't plan to immediately appoint anyone to fill Cox's role.

"This is an important change as we begin the next chapter of our work building the privacy-focused social foundation for the future. I’m deeply grateful for everything Chris Cox and Chris Daniels have done here, and I’m looking forward to working with Will and Fidji in their new roles as well as everyone who will be critical to achieving this vision. We have so much important work ahead and I’m excited to continue working to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together" Zuckerberg wrote.

It seems the departing execs left for a specific reason other than to improve their golf handicap or spend more time with their families - i.e., the increasing political scrutiny over the the company that likes to claim it is now world's most powerful and influential publisher of news (not sure Rupert Murdoch would agree with that, but Zuckerberg is nothing if not hubristic.

Migrant Crimes Concealed to ‘Avoid Stirring Up Prejudice’

the daily stirrer
Germans prptest against government failure to act on migrant sex crime, (source: world.korupciya.com/ )

Law enforcement and local government authorities in a rural part of Germany have been exposed for covering up the many serious crimes committed by 'asylum seekers' within their jurisdiction. The crimes include rape, assault, and child sex abuse. When questioned why they had allowed migrant crimes to go unpunished officials recited the familiar mantra so as not to “stir up prejudice”, it has been alleged.

Internal police figures leaked to immigration watchdog groups showe 117 criminal offences took place at single refugee housing complex in Boostedt, northern Germany, during the last three months, and that third world migrants housed in other accommodation in the municipality were listed as suspects in a further 23 crimes.

But officers declined to act on the reported comes or inform the media after receiving orders from the Interior Ministry, which instructed police that “active” notifications from the force’s press office on potential migrant involvement in crimes would be “irresponsible”, and likely to “stir up prejudice”, local media reports.

According to a regional newspaaper, Lübecker Nachrichten, the offences in question were not immigration-related (i.e. entering the country illegall; making false statements in applications for asylum;, but included assaults — some with weapons, rape, threats, property damage, and theft, along with a number of “particularly serious” cases, among them the reported sexual abuse of a nine-year-old girl in February this year.

Boostedt has seen a vast increase in crime since the opening of the asylum seekers refuge at the height of the migrant crisis in 2015, with the 4,600 population municipality hosting 1,369 asylum seekers at the latest count.

The number of offences linked to the migrant accommodation has doubled almost every year since Chancellor Angela Merkel opened German borders to all comers, with 343 crimes recorded last year — up from 33 in 2015 to 69 the following year, then to 126 in 2017.

And yet in spite of this pattern being repeated in every part of Germany where illegal immigrants have been settled, the nation's out of touch political leaders still call on Germans to accept more illegal immigrants.

Germany: Economy crisis a growth stalls - car production crashes

Merkel's push for federal Europe has harmed German car industry

Germany’s federal Government today reduced its growth forecast for the EU’s largest economy today after for the second time in two months as plunging car production figures sent shockwaves through the Eurozone. The German economy, already technically in recession, has been propping up the economically stagnant EU for years. After Brexit of course, with the only other net contributor to the EU gone, even a growing Germany economy could not alone have supported the many economic basket cases the empire builders in Brussels have allowed into the European Union.

Forecast GDP growth has been cut to 0.8 percent for 2019, German business newspaper Handelsblatt has reported, citing an official Government document. The Government had already cut growth expectations for this year in January from 1.8 percent to one percent as the economy technically slipped into recession having contracted for the third consecutive quarter. The eurozone’s most powerful economy with GDP at more than £3trillion, has suffered from the effects of trade wars, a weakening global economy, and mounting political instability throughout Europe, as the swing to nationalism continues to gather momentum in the wake of Brexit.

A stagnant or contracting economy could result in tax revenues being lower than anticipated this year, increasing tensions in Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition government over spending priorities and Merkel's sacred cow 'open doors' immigration policy.

The latest downgrade in the nation’s economic expectations came after Germany’s National Statistics Office said industrial output dropped 0.8 percent in January - well below market expectations for a 0.5 percent rise. Continuation of that trend would mean a catastrophic recession for Germany which would drag down the rest of the EU.

The news follows bleak forecasts from the Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) on Wednesday, which lowered its growth forecast for Germany to 0.7 percent, a cut of 0.9 percentage points. Separate data from the Economy Ministry showed car production plunged 9.2 percent in January.

‘Aggressive promotion of homosexuality’: School stops LGBT lessons after backlash from angry parents

It had to happen of course, the left's love of minorities inevitably led to a clash of interests when politically correct, cultural Marxist education policy led teachers in a birmingham school with a large proportion of Muslim pupils, responded 'in the interests of diversity and inclusiveness' to guidelines suggesting compulsory lessons in homosexuality and lesbianism should be taught to all pupils.

The primary school in Birmingham, England, has been forced to halt LGBT lessons after 600 pupils were reportedly taken out of classes by furious Muslim parents upset at the abomination of homosexuality being “aggressively” taught as a positive thing to their children.

Parkfield Community School has suspended its about the future of lessons in a topic deeply offensive to followers of Islam. Furtherv‘No Outsiders’ classes will now not take place until after Easter, while the consultations take place . Tensions between the school and parents have escalated due to a row surrounding LGBT lifestyles being taught in classrooms. The ill-feeling from angry parents has even boiled over into threats against the assistant headteacher Andrew Moffat MBE, who is gay. He claims to have received “nasty emails” including one which warned he “wouldn’t last long.”

The primary school, which has around 740 pupils, is located in a predominantly Muslim area. It has come under fire from Muslim parents for implementing an LGBT programme which seeks to challenge homophobia, because homosexuality is strictly forbidden in Islam.

According to Alum Rock Community Forum, children were removed from classes over the school’s “undermining of parental rights and aggressively promoting homosexuality.”

All in all this is another demonstration of the arrogance and self righteous stupidity of the left. WTF possessed these supposedly educated idiots to think they could forcibly indoctrinate muslim children with LGBT propaganda. For all their pompous, politically correct blether about integration thay have demonstrated they know absolutely nothing about Islam.

Twenty Mem Arrested for Child Sexual Exploitation in Wakefield, Yorkshire

Nineteen men and one woman have been arrested in connection with the activities of an alleged grooming gang which perpetrated sexual offences against two underage girls in Wakefield, West Yorkshire. The suspects are alleged to have victimised two girls between 2014 and 2016 when they were aged between 14 and 15, according to the BBC.

Neither the national nor religious backgrounds of the suspects or victims has been made available for publication, and the nature of the alleged offences — first reported in 2016 — have not been disclosed though giventhe similarities with caes in nearby Rotherham and elsewhere it's likely most people will be.

“We have now arrested and bailed 19 men and a woman as part of an ongoing operation into the child sexual exploitation of two females in the Wakefield District,” confirmed Detective Chief Inspector Fran Naughton, who has been leading the investigation, in an official statement issued by West Yorkshire Police.

“This large scale enquiry will be ongoing for some time and we will update residents when we can and it is legally appropriate to do so,” Naughton added.

“I fully appreciate the concern news of these arrests will cause in communities within the Wakefield area and can assure residents that the force is very experienced at managing investigations of this kind.

“Wakefield, just like other district’s in the force, has a dedicated team of experienced safeguarding officers who work to protect those at risk and conduct enquiries to identify and prosecute those seeking to cause harm. We work closely with partners in local authorities, charities and partner agencies to support victims, and are, of course, doing so in this case.

“As always, we continue to urge all victims of sexual abuse whether recent or historic, to report it to the police. We realise the trauma victims suffer as a result of these dreadful offences and can promise those who came forwards will be listened to and supported by trained, dedicated professionals who want to deliver justice for them.” More on UK Abuse scandals

Yellow Vests ransack MASONIC LODGE in French village as protest gets out of hand (VIDEO)

Yellow Vest protesters in the small French town of Terbes broke into and trashed a Masonic lodge. The attack has been condemned by the French government, which accused the protesters of “stupidity” and “intolerance.”

A crowd of around 500 protesters gathered in Tarbes on Saturday for the 17th weekend of anti-government demonstrations. At about midnight, according to La Dépêche newspaper, some protesters began shouting “we’re going to the freemasons!”

A breakaway group from the main protest marched on the Masonic temple and battered down the door of the secretive organization’s lodge headquarters. More protesters pelted the building with rocks and eventually forced their way inside. They smashed furniture, destroyed the mystic art hanging on the walls, and stole four ceremonial swords which they gave back later on.

Police have opened an investigation, and France’s Interior Minister Christophe Castaner condemned the vandalism.

Al Gore Brands UK Politicians ‘Cowards’ for Not Forcing Second Brexit Referendum

Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore lashed out at British politicians, calling them “cowards” for failing to betray the will of the majority and force voters into a re-run of the 2016 referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union.

Speaking at the Climate Change Leadership summit in Porto, Portugal,(Gore is one of the leading profiteers from climate change,) the 70-year-old Democrat referred to the notorious “Breaking Point” poster launched by Brexit campaign leader Nigel Farage at the height of the campaign, showing a huge column of what were assumed to be illegal migrants pouring through EU external borders in late 2015.

“One of the most powerful posters in the ‘Brexit’ campaign was one that showed an endless line of refugees saying, ‘The EU failed’,” Gore told his hosts — although, in fact, the legend read “The EU has failed us all”.

“I do not want to get into the issue, but as a politician I will say that I think politicians of the United Kingdom are cowards for not allowing a second referendum,” he declared, suggesting that many migrants — many of whom turned out to be violent criminals or even radical Islamic terrorists — are fleeing climate change.

The multi-millionaire did not press the issue, of Brexit, however, explaining: “I have enough problems in my country, with the crazy Trump.” Or perhaps he had other reasons ...

Al who? you might well ask. Al Gore; he's a billionaire who flies round the world in his private jet to make speeches warning people of the catastrophe's that will happen is ordinary wage earners do not reduce their carbon footprint by cutting back on their lifestyles.

Naturally, while hyping up the threat of carbon dioxide Gore never speaks of how he has almost doubled his personal fortune by trading in carbon credits, the permits doled out to developing nations allowing them to produce CO2 'to aid development.'

As some ancient 'bubble and squeak' called Homer (not the one who features in a cartoon comedy,) put it 2500 years ago, "

“I detest that man, who hides one thing in the depths of his heart, and speaks forth another”

Yes, Gore is a destestable hypocrite, and were he in any way qualified to lecture the British on how to manage our domestioc politics we might have been well informed enough to recall one of the major turning points in the referendum campaign was when the war criminal and mass murderer Barack Hussein Obama came to Britain and told us all we must vote "Remain."


Dutch professor: “Western countries have never managed to integrate Muslims”

typical European women, liberated and independent, enjoy a walk in the park

Dutch professor of sociology Ruud Koopmans has carried out a 20-year research project embracing several large scale studies on integration and assimilation, and at the end of it all he concludes that Muslims are more difficult to integrate than other migrant groups.

Koopmans notes that no Western country having received a significant number of Muslim immigrants has successfully managed to persuade them to integrate with local laws and culture. “Muslims are much worse at integration than other groups of migrants, and there is no doubt that in most other groups of migrants, we see great progress from one generation to the next. Although it’s not completely absent in Muslims, the change is much slower,” he told Danish newspaper Berlingske recently.

The studies found that around 65 percent of Turkish and Moroccan Muslims in the six European countries with the largest Muslim immigrant communities consider religious rules to be more important than the secular law of the country in which they live. Muslims consider themselves a superior caste and segregate themselves from other non-Muslim immigrant groups, going out of their way to minimise social interaction with people ot of their religion.

The fundamentalist interpretation of the Quran, which is prevalent among Sunni Muslims, the most numerous Islamic sect and by far the greatest number of Muslims living in Europe, prevents them from being integrated into Western countries.

Up to 50 percent of Muslims in Europe are of a fundamentalist persuasion, blieving that to honour their god they must live according to rules prescribed in The Koran, which was written in the medieval era. By contrast, the proportion of Christian fundamentalists, who try to fit their morals to The Bible but otherwise accept most of modernity, is much lower, at around 4 percent, according to Koopmans’ data.

“I conclude that the Islamic world is lagging behind rest of the world when it comes to democracy, human rights, and political and economic development,” Koopmans told Berlingske, pointing out in support of his argument to conservative views on family life the role of women, low investment into children’s, particularly girls, education, excessive punishments such as the amputation of a hand for theft or pblic beheading for adulterers, such as have not been seen in the west for hundreds of yearts, and fundamentalist propaganda.

“The main problem is how many Muslims and, globally, many Muslim countries interpret Islam. Namely, in a way that basically claims that the Quran and the Sunna must be taken literally, and that the way the Prophet lived in the 7th century must be the yardstick for how Muslims should live in the 21st century.” “Such a brand of Islam is, firstly, a threat to world peace. Secondly, it prevents integration,” Koopmans concluded.

He is right of course, The Daily Stirrer and Boggart Blog have commented on the problem of Muslims reluctance to integrate many times.

Finnish "Soldiers Of Odin" Announce Hunt For Rapists & Pedos In Controversial Video

The video, subtitled in English and Arabic, has since been deleted from both Facebook and Vimeo, shows a group of masked men dressed in dark, armed with bats and chains march towards to the camera amid winter darkness, accompanied by heavy metal music.

The man at their head acts as a spokesperson and announces that “The pedophile hunting season has been opened!”

The speaker claims that their targets are the “sex tourists who have invaded our country” and “hunt our children”. And explains that the Soldiers of Odin are going to take justice into their own hands, since “the authorities and the politicians do nothing”.

The Soldiers of Odin also say that half of the sexual propositions to underage girls in their city came

from Arabs. However, the group stress that the hunt is open for “domestic pedophiles and rapists of all colours”. \the pattern of a huge incresse in sex crimes against \european women has been repeated across Europe, most notably in Sweden, Germany and Britain

The Soldiers of Odin do not intend that Finnish men will be seen as so emasculated by politically correct indoctrination they have lost the testicular fortitude to defen their women and girls, as the sokesman explained quite forcefully.

We guarantee you that a date with us will be memorable. And hey, don’t worry, we won’t call the police”, they state.
The video is a response to the cases of sexual abuse of minors perpetrated in Oulu and Helsinki by a group of foreigners, who have been arrested by the police.

The National Police Board has asked the Helsinki Police Department to assess whether a hate crime toward ethnic groups should be suspected and to determine which preventive and other measures should be taken regarding the publication.

The Police Board says that; “suspected crimes cannot be systematically responded to with serious offenses”. And; "responding to sexual crimes with crimes of violence does not help in the protection of human life and health or contribute to public safety".

As usual, as we have seen in Britain, Germany, Sweden, Italy, Netherlands, Austria, Belgium, the authorities hide their inaction in reponse to sex crimes by followers of The Religion Of Hate And Misogyny behind weasel words. The hate crime is not telling the truth about migrant crimes, the hate crime is the contempt for free, independent women followers of that religion feel.

Macron admits Yellow Vest chaos COULD be his fault - ‘I made MISTAKES’

Then he continuing, blaming the rest of the EU, nationalism, Italy and the working classes for the problem.

President Emmanuel Macron of France is trying to appear as if, after sixteen weeks of protests, he is finally acknowledging his initial handling of the yellow vest protest movement was flawed and high handed, admitting it exacerbated the unrest. The europhile president, who recently infuriated his critics by signing a treaty that will lead to closer economic and political integration between France and Germany, also warned against giving in to the wave of nationalism sweeping across the bloc, as he called for a “strong, united and sovereign” Europe.

He said: “When we move ahead too quickly … we make mistakes. I’ve made mistakes in the past, which are part of the explanation for the [yellow vest] crisis. We cannot leave those who need to work, to live, to move face an uncertain future devoid of opportunities," he continued, as he called for “reconciliation” following 16 weeks of sometimes violent anti-government protests.

In fact that amounts to a non - admission of culpability because Macron treied the same grovelling mea culpa trick back in December, as reported by France 24, before ramping up the police violence in a bid to suppress criticism of his regime.

The yellow vest movement – which takes its name from the fluorescent safety jackets all French drivers must carry in their cars – started way back in mid-November over rising fuel costs and planned fuel tax hikes but quickly morphed into a popular revolt against Mr Macron’s perceived neglect of the working class and globalist, pro-business economic policies.

His government has since deployed paramilitary police to quash the crisis – which is still ongoing – and when that failed he tried promising to increase the minimum wage, slash taxes for low-income pensioners, tax-free overtime pay and a scuttling of the controversial fuel tax. Unfortunately for his government, few people believed him.

Mr Macron also spoke against the continuing growth of support for nationalist parties in Europe, as he called for the soon-to-be 27-member bloc to remain “united and sovereign”. The boy Macron seems to have a very vague grasp of what sovereign means as only yesterday his mentor Hausfrau - Volksfuhrer Merkel was demanding that memberr states surrender sovereignty over border control to the EU.

Urging EU states to fight against any form of “retreat into nationalism,” the 41-year-old said countries needed to instead focus on an advance into Maoism working together to resolve common problems, such as mass immigration from sub-Saharan Africa and economic slowdowns. Again Macron is talking through his derriere, since being elected he has constantly called for more immigration and more erosion of European cultures to accomodate the excesses of Islamic extremism.

He said: “No country in Europe, not Italy, not France, will solve its problems by opposing itself to other European countries and by turning inwards at national level. We will solve our problems by cooperating.” Or as his German allies might put it, "Ve haff vays of making you cooperate."

Gang of Migrants Allegedly Raped Underage Italian Girls

Over the past few years we have focused on reporting the numerous incidences of immigrant sex crimes against white British girls and women, most of which, due to the wrped morality of politically correct thinking that permeates all levels of government and the public sector, went largely unpunished for many years until public pressure forced the authorities to act.

What is it about the left wing mindset that enables them to screech and scream about women's rights and toxic masculinity or claim that a European man putting his hand on a woman's arm consitutes serious sexual assault, but gang rape which is surely one of the most horrible and psychologically damaging crimes, is less serious if the perpetrators have darker skin than their victim?

Migrant sex crimes, and government cover - ups of them are not exclusive to Britain of course, we have occasionally looked at similar problems in Sweden, Germany and France. And now it seems, Italian women are to be sacrificed to the gods of multiculturalism.

A gang of five Muslim migrants have been arrested in Italy after being accused of luring four underage Italian girls with drugs, imprisoning them, and taking turns sexually abusing them. The alleged migrant rape gang consisted of three Albanians and two Moroccans aged between 17 and 20-years-old. They are accused of locking up four Italian girls in an apartment after inviting them over with the promise of alcohol and drugs, Il Giornale reports.

Investigators say the young migrants, who came from “non-disadvantaged, integrated and working families”, lured the underage girls in July of last year after meeting them through school. After arriving in the apartment, the migrants locked the girls in the apartment so they would not be able to escape. After the girls begged to be released the migrants threatened them saying they would throw them out of the window. It is a pattern of abuse instantly recognisable to those of us who have followed the grooming and abuse cases in Rotherham, Birmingham, Oxford
and elsewhere in Britain.

One of the girls was then separated from the others and stripped of clothes as the five migrants sexually abused her and filmed the ordeal on their mobile phones. The case comes after two other high profile cases involving migrants drugging and sexually abusing Italian girls over the last year. The first, which occurred in February of 2018, saw 18-year-old Pamela Mastropietro lured away from a drug addiction recovery centre by a Nigerian drug dealer.

Ms Mastropioetro was later killed and her body dismembered and put into suitcases that were left on the side of the road in the Italian commune of Pollenza. Several months later, another young Italian girl, Desirée Mariottini, was found dead in an abandoned building site known to be connected to the city’s drug scene in Rome. Witnesses say the 16-year-old was drugged and sexually abused by several migrant men before she died of an overdose which prosecutors allege was caused on purpose by her attackers.

This abuse and brutalisation of European women is sadly becoming the norm. Historically, widespread approval of class, sexual or racially-based scapegoating is a necessary precursor to eventual genocide. The process through which this comes about is well understood and well applied - first ridicule, then demonise and then destroy - and the latest group targets are white nationalist-traditionalist heterosexuals and their children** who are now being assaulted on every front by empowered minority groups of sexual deviants, predatory aliens and avaricious globalists.

Our ruling classes, their MSM propagandists, their uniformed and civilian attired enforcement arms, feral African-heritage criminal empires, the global jihad and their Antifa street soldiers are all still some way away from that stage of dealing with us free thinking and freedom loving reprobates, but the possibility inches slowly forward day by day as history has demonstrated so many times before.

We must stop this abomination now before that disparate collection of predators and parasites coalesces into a united front whilst we remain fragmented and often isolated in relatively safe non-metropolitan bubbles simply getting on with our lives mostly unaffected in our personal ‘calm in the eye of the storm’ whilst ignoring the tempest closing in around us.


UPS Halts Deliveries To Swedish No Go Zone:- "Our Drivers Have Been Attacked":

Though European leaders and the more sychphantic mainstream media journalists throughout Europe ans in the USA and Canada have always denied the existence, of no - go zones for Europeans, police and emergency services in migrant-dominated areas of European cities, "no go" zones remain a persistent public safety threat to white, Christian and Jewish residents and to the public in general. It has been widely reported in alternative media (but harly mentioned in mainstream print and broadcast news, that liberal Sweden has been the country worst hit by immigrant violence and lawlessness.

In the latest illustration of how the Swedish government's refusal to accept there is a problem that migrants of certain religious and ethnic backgrounds are not only unwilling to integrate into Swedish society but absolutely refuse to respect Swedish law, culture and traditions, or even acknowledge the fact that - as Swedish police chiefs warned back in 2017 - these areas represent "parallel societies" where Swedish institutions aren't recognized, UPS has ceased delivery to Rosengard, a notorious neighborhood in Malmo, Sweden, after several of its drivers were assaulted and robbed.

According to local media reports cited by RT, delivering to the neighborhood has become too dangerous for UPS, after the US carrier told the press that "our drivers have been attacked and therefore we have decided not to hand out packages at [the district]." Ironically in 2017 a pair of US liberal journalists went to Sweden with the intention of complining a report that would discredit the stories of no - go zones completely and expose the idea as 'a far - right conspiracy theory'. Within a few days of starting their project they were approached by leaders of the local immigrant community and told whites were not welcome in the community and if they did not leave there would be painful consequences. The Americans wisely did not stay to find out what the consequences might be.

Police

The UPS decision to cease package delivery to one of Sweden's no - go zones follows a spike in crime in the notoriously poverty-stricken neighborhood, where police say they cannot effectively carry out their law enforcement duties.

Rosengard, a troubled, immigrant-dominated neighborhood, has gained notoriety due to a spike in violent crime recorded in recent years. Gun violence, armed robberies, and other offenses seem to have become commonplace there, according to media reports. The district, plagued by unemployment and poverty, has previously appeared on a list of Sweden’s ‘vulnerable areas’, which some media and local politicians refer to as ‘no-go zones’.

Across Europe, the term "no go zone" is now used to refer to areas where any government agency, even the police are afraid to enter. UPS isn't the first organization operating in Sweden to adopt an official company police to avoid 'no go' zones. That list also includes PostNord, the country's government run postal service.

For some local service providers at least, the words ‘no-go zones’ are taken quite literally. In 2017, the Swedish ambulance union said first responders need military-grade protective gear to withstand the dangers of such areas. Later that year, the government-run postal service, PostNord, halted mail delivery to some addresses near the troubled Stockholm suburb of Rinkeby, where large-scale riots were taking place.
Back in 2017, a leaked police report identified 23 'no go' zones across the country where police couldn't effectively operate.
But in the US, the New York Times and its partners in the mainstream press refuse to acknowledge the existence of an immigrant driven spike in crime in parts of the liberal Nordic paradise, just as left wing journalists in Britain continue to deny the grooming and rape of European girls by organised gangs of immigrant men claiming, despite two government commissioned reports confirming these cases and the failings of police and local authorities. Why? Because it contradicts the pro-immigration agenda of the globalist, cultural Marxist consensus among the ruling elites. MORE ON EUROPE'S iMMIGRATION PROBLEMS

Merkel: EU Members Must Cede control Of Their Border |To Brussels

German Chanellor Angela Merkel sparked outrage today and pushed the EU cloers to its final disintegration when she stated that EU Member states would be forced to surrender on of their most important sovereign powers, control of their borders, to Brussels in order that the unelected bureaucrats of the European commission could 'manage' immigration (i.e. open the border crossings and let any criminally inclined bunch of fanatics enter Europe.

Several nations responded immediately. The Hungarian government warned that the EU’s unelected executive and Germany’s Hausfrau - Volksfuhrer Merkel, whose action of opening Germany's borders to all comers spaked the current migrant cvrisis, want to take away national governments’ power to control their own borders and thus turn Europe into “a continent of immigrants”.

This is a sacred cow policy for globalists and like all globalist ideas would benefit the rich and corporate business by creating a surplus of labour and driving down the wages of Europe's middle and working classes.

Hungary's State Secretary for International Communications and Relations Dr Zoltán Kovács warned that plans to expand the role of the centralised EU Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex) were a blatant attempt to wrest sovereign powers from member-states by taking border control out of national governments’ remit and handing it to the supranational body.

To support his claims about the intentions of Europes European elite, he quoted arguably the bloc’s most influential player, Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany:

“[President of the European Commission] Jean-Claude Juncker has already put forward a proposal that states that Frontex must be reinforced. However, this also means – and this is what I support, at least – that member-states on the external border of the EU must give up their national competencies in order to give Frontex truly comprehensive competencies.”

Kovacs warned fellow national politicians,“Beware when a senior figure says that countries ‘with external EU borders’ should ‘surrender their national competences’. That should set off warning bells throughout the EU,” he said. Kovacs then compared Mrs Merkel’s words to those of billionaire plutocrat and open borders activist George Soros, who boasted that “our plan treats the protection of refugees as the objective and national borders as the obstacle”.

The Hungarian emphasised EU leaders’ constant stress on border management — “It’s never ‘strengthening’ or ‘defending’ borders. It’s always about ‘managing’ them and that’s a euphemism for immigration,” he asserted.

Meanwhile, Hungarian foreign minister Péter Stíjjártó claimed that the increasing hostility of the Brussels bureaucratic dictatorship to pro-sovereignty, anti-mass migration conservative and national populist governments and parties in Europe is due to their rejection of policies that encourage illegal immigration and their refusal to become “migrant hosts,” taking in numbers of illiterate third world peasants dictated in quotas imposed by Brussels. He made the claim at a joint press conference with his Polish counterpart, Jacek Czaputowicz.

In particular, the foreign minister highlighted the EU’s anger at Hungary and Poland being among the first European countries to follow U.S. President Donald Trump in rejecting the United Nations Global Compact for Migration — championed by the unelected EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy in what the Hungarian described as an attempt to “force it down nations’ throats”.

Bradford Gang of nine who abused care home girls jailed for 132 years

Bradford grooming gang members convicted of rape
Picture credit: www.express.co.uk

A gang of nine Asian men who, in a case that follows the pattern set by similar cases in Rotherham, Rochdale, Birmingham, Newcastle, Oxford, Sheffield, Blackburn, Telford and many other towns which has large Muslim populations in Britain,groomed, raped and abused two teenage girls from a care home were jailed for a total of 132 years at Bradford Crown Court yesterday.

The victims both aged 14 at the time of the abuse, were plied with drink and drugs to desensitise them prior to being forced to have sex with multiple partners. The paedophiles also employed threats and physical violence to groom and sexually abuse the girls in hotels happy to rent rooms by the hour in Bradford.

Sentencing the gang, Judge Durham Hall said: "The damage and hurt you have caused for your sexual pleasure has been revealed to all, and the lengths some of you went to corrupt and groom a girl are truly appalling."

"The jury have seen this case for what it was - clear, determined and insidious grooming." Kama Melly QC, prosecuting, told the court how the girls had been "vulnerable to manipulation" prior to being subjected to sickening abuse at the hands of the men "to satisfy their sexual desires". The teenagers repeatedly ran away from their local authority home in Bradford, but because it was not a restrictive unit, the staff had no power to stop them leaving late at night, Bradford Crown Court heard.

The six-week trial mirrored many in recent years in which gangs of men, typically migrants from Pakistan and Bangladesh, with a sprinking of Somalis, have groomed and abused vulnerable teenage girls.

In a reference to previous cases, Judge Hall said: "No court in England and Wales seems to have escaped grooming by groups or individuals of vulnerable young persons. As the knowledge of the opportunity to take advantage of damaged young people spreads, it is not uncommon for young men to get involved."

Addressing the defendants, he added: "In the trial it was clear you didn't get it, and some of you still do not get it now."

In a victim impact statement one girl said: "I have the most irrational thoughts because of anxiety. I have a fear of going to the shops, and very rarely go to restaurants or out on an evening with friends. I was manipulated, used, nothing but a toy to play with."

The second victim, Fiona Goddard, now 25, who waived her right to anonymity, said: "I showed signs of a promising future and wanted to be a lawyer. Because of the abuse I dropped out of school and was in trouble with police. Rebuilding my life has been hard while my abusers walk the streets, but hopefully getting justice is the first step towards this."

The allegations came to light in 2014 when one of the victims contacted the BBC after seeing a report on the sexual abuse of hundreds of young girls in Rotherham.

Across the pond the Islamization of New Jersey schools advances, with little or no opposition

Mainstream media's intentionally misleading headline for this story reads: “Paterson Schools Show ‘Cultural Competency’ with the introduction of Halal food” for Muslims. But it is NOT ‘cultural competency’ whatever the Hell that means. It is submission to Islam by ignorant Christians, too busy virtue signalling to see what's going on, and Jews, who never would think of demanding Kosher food to be served in public schools.

It seems our friends in America are fighting the same battles as we are: Passaic County News An initiative to ensure healthy and full meals Islam-approved food for a large segment of Paterson Schools students was launched Monday when, for the first time, Halal food becames available at John F. Kennedy High School.

According to Superintendent Eileen Shafer, the program will also launch at Paterson School # 5 where she believes as many as 30% of the students will choose the new option while 15% may do so at JFK to comply with religious dietary requirements. The program is projected to eventually reach every school in the city, Shafer added.

On hand was Mohammed Akhtaruzzaman, a former member Paterson City Council, who explained the religious significance of Halal culinary fare.

“Halal meat such as chicken, cattle, or goats, is slaughtered and prepared to follow the (inhumane and barbaric) Islamic way,” Akhtaruzzaman said. “Muslims do not eat pork. For food to qualify as Halal, it cannot be fried or mixed with other food that is non-Halal.”

Students at John F. Kennedy High School can now get Halal lunches in the cafeteria thanks to a new pilot program introduced on Monday, Feb. 25, 2019, in Paterson. (Photo: Danielle Parhizkaran/NorthJersey.com)

Citing cost as an impediment previously Akhtaruzzaman, a native of Bangladesh, said that efforts to introduce Halal food options to the school’s menus date back to 2011. “We tried back then and the school board was open to it. However the only place we could get Halal food was from Dearborn, Michigan. It was too expensive.”

Meals to feed as many as 500 students were prepared at JFK on the first day of the pilot program Dave Buchholtz, Director of Food Services, said. While the food trucked to the school is all the same its in the preparation, which food services have been specially trained in, that makes the difference.

The previous lack of a Halal food option meant that “there were a number of students in Paterson schools that were not afforded three meals a day,” Board of Education Commissioner Nakima Redmon said. (Ever hear of bringing a bag lunch?)

“It is very important for them to have access to food that also considers their culture submits to their religious demands..”

There's only one way to win a culture war against the metropolitan elite

As the British political establishment rips itself apart over Brexit, in the background Britain's culture war rumbles on. Opponents to the metropolitan establishment are badly losing the war on both fronts; as the prospect of leaving the EU on March 29 rapidly dissolves, Middle England is also struggling to form a coherent and articulate response to the dominance of liberal Left values in British cultural and intellectual life.

This week, Michael Blackburn, an English literature lecturer at the University of Lincoln, left his post halfway through the academic year after student outcry at some of his past tweets. He had complained about having to read endless papers on “patriarchy and the oppression of women” and despaired at his students’ “smug little minds.” (He also railed online at “machete-wielding, Koran-quoting Muslims” after terrorist attacks, as his critics have pointed out.) ...

Brexit news: Yanis Varoufakis warns European Union ‘DISINTEGRATION’ is coming

from
foxvalleymessenger
The former Greek Finance Minister warned the is to embark on a path of “great decline” after Britain officially leaves the bloc on March 29. Yanis Varioufakis insisted is “one of the symptoms” signalling the union will slowly disintegrate as top Eurocrats fail to put the interests of European citizens at the “top of their list of priorities.” Speaking to Channel 4 News, Mr Varoufakis said: “Brexit is a symptom of the disintegration of the European Union.
“It’s one of the many symptoms – it may be particularly impressive as an event and catastrophic, which it is, but it is only part of this dynamic of deconstruction of the European Union. “The tragedy we have now is that you have a negotiation, or so-called negotiation, between Brussels and London, and neither Brussels nor London have the European people’s interests at the top of their lists of priorities.” The former financial repeatedly spoke out against the and their conduct in the Brexit negotiations, suggesting in January the bloc would employ crafty measures to extend the talks with Britain past the “fake” March deadline. Mr Varoufakis insisted Brexit will be “detrimental” for Europe because of the close economic ties member states share with the United Kingdom and urged the negotiators to stop “playing chicken” with .

He continued: “For Brussels what really matters is not to show to the rest of Europe that one can oppose Brussels and the European Union and get away with a good deal. For London, and in particular Theresa May, all that matters is the unity of the Tory Party and who cares – she doesn’t care – about the interests of the British people. “But it will be detrimental to Europe.

Tommy Robinson banned from Facebook, Instagram over ‘hate speech’

Tommy Robinson, founder of the English-Defence League, has been banned from Facebook and Instagram after the social media company said he repeatedly breached its policies on hate speech.

“Tommy Robinson’s Facebook Page has repeatedly broken these standards, posting material that uses dehumanizing language and calls for violence targeted at Muslims,” Facebook announced in a blog post explaining the decision.

Robinson, birth name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, violated Facebook's rules against bullying and public incitement to violence, especially against those of certain protected characteristics. It is very noticeable that these rules are not applied equally to those of 'protected characteristics' when they call fot the extermination of all infidels, all straight, white males, or all Jews.

Robinson was reportedly given a final written warning by Facebook last month, advising him that he would be banned sine die if he continued to violate the rules. The warning was allegedly prompted by a call to behead those who follow the Koran, another to “make war” on Muslims, and various videos showing people being harassed and bullied. none of which, it must be said, are actually recalled by people who visit Robinson's site. Possibly the most offensive thing a visitor might have seen is an example of Robinson exposing the left wing bias of the BBC and showing how they edit interviews to suit their political agenda.

Following the warning, Facebook claim Robinson further breached the company policy by organizing an event with Gavin McInnes and his controversial group The Proud Boys, in addition to repeated posts with inflammatory language targeting specific groups in society. Some of this reportedly included calls for violence against these groups based on ethnicity, race and national origin.

Robinson will join McInnes as well as InfoWars founder Alex Jones on Facebook’s permaban list, each having already been banned from Twitter. The move adds to the Silicon Valley giant’s attempts to clamp down on hate speech.

Spanish Socialists in TURMOIL as right-wing parties ON TRACK to win snap election - poll

The decision of Spain's political leader, the socialist Predro Sanchez to dissolve his government and call a general election appears to have backfired, putting the EU in a panic as Eurosceptic parties look set to take control of the nation that has the Eurozone's fouth largest economy, and govern from an anti - Brussels platform and clamp down on illegal immigration from third world nations. Following the election of a nationalist coalition in Italy last year, this looks like being another blow to the the Globalist establishment.

As I reported last week, right-wing parties in Spain look set to win enough seats in the national assembly to hold a parliamentary majority in April’s snap election, according to a leading opinion. Since the win for 'Brexit' in the UK referendum, the victory of Donald Trump in the 2016 US Presidential Election and the rise of Lega in Italy, Rassemblement National in France and the AfD party in Germany, as well as a surge of nationalism across the Eu memner nations, we have all learned not to place any faith in polls.

The numbers however show that centre right and right parties PP, Ciudadanos and Vox could gain just enough seats to control the Cortes Generales, Spain's parliament. The poll suggests the three parties will win the biggest share of the seats with around 169 to 179 being secured. Sigma Dos poll, which was published in newspaper El Mundo, concludes this will be enough to get a majority from the 350 seats.

The prime minister Pedro Sanchez’s Spanish Socialist Workers' Party will only gather around 110 seats, the biggest share of seats but some way of gaining power. Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez urged Europeans to fight the “winds of xenophobia” undermining European solidarity on Sunday.

“Across Europe, the winds of xenophobia are blowing,” he said in Argeles-sur-Mer, a seaside town across in southern France, close to the Spanish border, where he was paying tribute to refugees who fled the fascist regime of Francisco Franco which grabbed control of Spain after a brutal civil war in the 1930s. “There is no place for indifference. Don't look the other way. “We cannot think that anti-Semitism, homophobia, xenophobia and nationalism are insignificant winds that will slowly die down,” he told his audience, in an attempt to rally support for the EU's druve towards a federal European superstate.

He also pointed to the attack on a Jewish cemetery in eastern France last week, where some 90 graves were spray-painted with swastikas and anti-Semitic slogans and to the ongoing tensions over migrants arriving to Europe by sea from Africa, denouncing the “ports which refuse to let ships full of sick and hungry people dock. This is the idea of Europe. The idea on which has been built the best period humanity has known,” he added.

Ironically one of the policies Mr. Sanchez and his minority government have managed to implement is to open the borders to a flood of Islamic immigrants from Africa which, as it is well known the rise in anti - Semitic attacks across Europe is mostly due to Islamic fundamentalist groups who simply refuse to live alongside Jews, which makes his words on ant - Samitism seem empty and hypocritical. Argeles-sur-Mer was where some 100,000 Spanish refugees were initially held at a sordid open-air camp that became known as a “hell on sand”.

Since Mr Sanchez called the snap election last week it has been predicted that a coalition of right wing, Eurosceptic and nationalist parties will win enough seats to form a stable government.

A spokesperson for the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party told CNN the right-wing group's team up has created difficulties for the party. The spokesperson added: “It’s an agreement between right-wing forces and the extreme right, which is being sanitised.”

The conservative People's Party, the latest poll shows, will get 71-75 seats, while the centre-right Ciudadanos will take 54-58.

The far-right party Vox will win 44-46 seats, according to the poll and are the surprise party in this Spanish election cycle. Five years ago Spain’s break-out party, Podemos became the rising star of Europe’s confused and ineffectual far left. But with a snap election just weeks away the left of centre, but anti Brussels party looks to be among the also rans before a vote has been cast, and appears to be facing a crash as spectacular as its rise. Has the leftwing populist / nationalist appeal of ponytailed rebel Pablo Iglesias and his gang of talented young thinkers proved a failure?

Podemos once topped the polls in the era of frangmentation in Spanish politics that has seen three successive elections produce inconclusive outcomes, it almost snatched leadership of Spain’s left from prime minister Pedro Sánchez’s Socialist party at the 2016 elections, but it is now only the voters’ fourth favourite party.

The far-right populist party Vox is also neck and neck in polling. In April, it is predicted, Vox will target the same working-class city neighbourhoods as Podemos – claiming that immigrants and Catalan separatists, not austerity, are the problem. Mainstream parties will undoubtedly argue that this is merely one version of populism replacing another. That misses the point.

Although major social changes have occurred since Podemos became the principal party of the working class indignado protesters theafter the 2014 European elections, the damage is largely self-inflicted. In the latest of a series of pointless, but typically left wing internal bust-ups, Iglesias’s former No 2, Iñigo Errejón, is leading an alternative coalition into elections for the powerful Madrid regional government in May.

Councils Sack Immigration Control Officers After Pressure from Open Borders Left

Labour councils have been terminating the positions of embedded immigration officers in local councils due to pressure from Momentum Group bullies and open borders campaigners, who say officials are putting illegal migrants off accessing taxpayer-funded welfare. One has to ask what is it about the word 'illegal' these emotionally needy, virtue signalling planks find so difficult to understand about the word 'illegal'.

The London Borough of Lewisham, one of the most deprived areas of the British capital is one of a number of local authorities to make the move, The Guardian informs us. Labour mayor Damien Egan is reported to have vowed to turn the south-east London borough into one of sanctuary for illegal immigrants.

A report from self appointed migrant rights group Project 17 complained that the presence of Home Office immigration officers was deterring illegal immigrant “families” from seeking taxpayer-funded welfare and services, Egan said removing the officials embedded in the council would serve “to reassure vulnerable migrants that Lewisham will support them”.

Just what is wrong with these people? Illegal immigrants have no right to welfare benefits, they are criminals, having broken the law by entering the country without properly issued documents and permits. The only thing they have a right to is a place on the first boat or plane back to where their journey began.

A spokesman for the council, whose website periodically boasts about its moves to invite “record number[s] of refugees” to live at the expense of British taxpayers in the borough, admitted that the officers were sent to Lewisham to ease mounting costs “of millions of pounds in supporting residents with irregular immigration status”.

It almost goes without saying that Lewisham is one of the areas worst hit by the upsuge in violent crome since London's elected mayor Sadiq Khan ordered the city's police force to prioritise the prosecution of 'hate crime' over real crime where people get hurt or lose theor property.

UK Taxman is 'ruthlessly' pursuing its own contract staff for potential six-figure bills in unpaid tax

Picture credit: hillkindy.com

Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is once again hounding its own employees for potential six-figure bills as part of a crackdown on tax avoidance schemes. Some years ago I was a victim of one of these crackdowns, as an Information Technology consultant I, along with thousands of others working as external consultants in both government and business were forced by the tax inspectors to operate as limited liability companies.

The tax service had decided we were using the self employed status to avoid National Insurance Employers Contributions (a sanitized name for a British payroll tax,) as the self employed were not liable for this levy. By reinterpreting a law in such an extreme way it stretched words beyond any literal meaning, the taxman decided we should all set up limited companies, with ourselves as the only employee, thus making our employers, the quasi - companies, liable as our employers for the payroll tax.

Taxman thought he had won, but people who decide to employ themselves are bright, resourceful types and we soon learned the completely legal tax dodges used by the super rich, through their companies and trusts. We got ourselves accountants who advised on techniques like buybacks, directors loans etc. and we, in partnership with our incorporated dopplegangers, were soon all paying less tax than we had as self employed individuals.

Needless to say the taxman was furious. But we IT professionals, consultant engineers, designers, technicians and other contract workers in media, finance, healthcare and across the whole range of commercial activities were being advised and assisted by accountants. So the taxman hit on a new idea, he talked politicians into passing retrospective laws. Something you did legally in, say, 1995, could in 1998 be declared to have been a crime since 1993, thus in 1999 you could be prosecuted for it. And they call this liberal democracy.

All that was a long time ago. The techniques we used then have been blocked one way or another, and as a bonus for the taxman, Britain's software industry died (well, relocated to cyberspace,) as a result.

The ruthless war on enterprise and talent continued. Electricians and plumbers were targeted by the taxman in a purge that cost us poor taxpayers £8million and in which the tax inspectors managed to recover £100,000 in unpaid taxes (yeah, economics is not one of these people's strengths.)

Among the people in another purge to fall foul of this new retrospective lawmaking were entertainers and sports stars. And like the professional consultants of my era, a few years earlier, these people fell foul of the taxman for doing something that was perfectly legal at the time they did it.

Around 50,000 contractors are now being targeted by the tax office for using so-called disguised remuneration schemes, which involved receiving income in the form of tax-free loans from an offshore trust, throughout the Noughties and more recently.

The law was changed in 2016 and those who used the arrangements now face huge tax bills which, campaigners claim, will force some into bankruptcy or cause them to lose their homes.

It has now emerged that HMRC engaged contractors who were being paid in loans and is now pursuing them for the unpaid tax, the Sunday Telegraph revealed.

A panel of MPs looking into complaints about HMRC's persecution of certain groups has received evidence from multiple contractors once engaged by the taxman who say they used disguised remuneration arrangements and now face penalties.

Sir Ed Davey, a former Government minister, said: “This is astonishing considering HMRC’s ruthless and unreasonable pursuit of people in this situation, when they didn’t break the law and followed professional advice.

“What’s more, the evidence we’ve received also shows that these people declared all their arrangements in their annual tax return, so contrary to their claims not to know, HMRC were indeed aware contractors working for them were using these schemes.

One contractor, who worked for HMRC over two spells, anonymously told the panel that, based on the bills received by her peers, she expects she could be asked for almost £140,000. The 45-year-old, who lives in London, said: “It feels like the Government has gone to war against you. This is all about wearing people down and getting them to give up.”

Well yes, as I said earlier the government has been at war with enterprise, creativity and talent for a long time.

The schemes became popular in 1999 and were briefly sold by some of Britain’s leading accountancy firms.

In December, the House of Lords Economics Committee criticised HMRC’s approach to recouping the tax owed, describing it as “retrospective” and saying it was failing to distinguish between "contrived tax avoidance by sophisticated, high income individuals" and relatively low earners who made "naive decisions".

A spokesman for the tax office said: “HMRC has never endorsed or participated in disguised remuneration tax avoidance schemes. It is possible for contractors to use disguised remuneration without the participation or knowledge of their engager.”

He added that all contractors found to have used a loan scheme would be treated the same. What a pity they do not feel able to deploy the same diligence in their dealings with companies like Amazon, Google, Facebook, Apple and Microsoft, all of which are handled with kid gloves in spite of blatantly operating tax scams to avoid paying tax on most or all of their corporate profits.

Student Suspended from University for Calling Halal Slaughter ‘Inhumane’

In an outrageous assasult on our right to free speech a British student has claimed he has been suspended from university for voicing the opinion that halal slaughter, prescribed by Shariah Law, is “inhumane” and also saying illegal immigrants should not be allowed to use the National Health Service (NHS) for free. The student says he has been told he cannot return unless he signs a conduct agreement and undertakes diversity training.

UKIP activist Sebastian Walsh, 19, was critical of “Islamisation” of Britain, halal slaughter, and the treatment of women by Sharia courts during class discussions at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN). He was reported to the university authorities by his tutors and suspended as a result, according to MailOnline.

“All I did was voice my opinions during debates about immigration,” the Walsh told reporters from local newspapers. “I am totally against halal meat because I think it’s cruel — it’s an inhumane and barbaric way of slaughtering animals.

“In another seminar class, we had a discussion about the privatisation of the NHS and I simply said I don’t think free healthcare should be available to immigrants.

“These are views held by many people in the public and I believe I should be able to express them freely,” Walsh complained, adding that he felt the university had “victimised” him.

In fact UCLAN, the University formerly known as Preston Polytechnic is a tin pot little college totally controlled by rabid left wing extremists. Small minded actions like this authoritarian foot stamping are a violation of the every principle of higher education, are a typical publicity seeking stunt from a college with an institutional inferiority complex, situated as it is, in the centre of a trangle the points of which are the great universities of Lancaster, Liverpool and Manchester.

The University's response was a typically mealy mouthed, snivelling spiel of self justification:

“UCLAN is proud to host a campus community comprised of many cultures, faiths, nationalities and beliefs,” a spokesman for the university said in response to the controversy surrounding the suspension.

“It values this rich diversity and takes seriously its responsibility to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all [and] promotes lawful, open debate, the discussion of varying views and academic freedom and has in place robust procedures to ensure this can take place,” they added — but then went on to say that Walsh’s “offensive and inappropriate comments” were unacceptable.

“The student has been temporarily suspended for the remainder of the academic year and is aware that on the successful completion of a diversity training course, he will be able to resume his studies,” the spokesman added.

Walsh, however, has said he will not accept the university’s demands, insisting: “Freedom of speech is a human right and I am determined to stand by this. I will be fighting the university’s decision on this to make sure others aren’t punished for their opinions in future.”

He has received support from his local UKIP branch, which has expressed concern “that this young boy is being denied his education for simply expressing his opinion.”

Have to say we can't fault the lad on this, freedom of speech and opinion is the most fundamental right we have and when we see our countrymen jailed and persecuted for criticising Islam (not Muslims in general but Islam, we have to wonder why similar constraints are not being put on the Islamic hate preachers who call on their followers to kill Christians and Jews.

As Marcus Tullius Cicero said 2100 years ago, "Since our ancestors came down from the hills to live as civilised people it has been understood there is one law that applies equally to all," He was right, and if we lose sight of that principle, for the purpose of appeasing Islamic fantatics for example, we have lost civilisation.

Spanish Socialists in TURMOIL as right-wing parties ON TRACK to win snap election

As we reported yesterday, right-wing parties in Spain look set to win enough seats in the national assembly to hold a parliamentary majority in April’s snap election, according to a leading opinion. Since the win for 'Brexit' in the UK referendum, the victory of Donald Trump in the 2016 US Presidential Election and the rise of Lega in Italy, Rassemblement National in France and the AfD party in Germany, as well as a surge of nationalism across the Eu memner nations, we have all learned not to place any faith in polls.

The numbers however show that centre right and right parties PP, Ciudadanos and Vox could gain just enough seats to control the Cortes Generales, Spain's parliament parliament. The poll suggests the three parties will win the biggest share of the seats with around 169 to 179 being secured. Sigma Dos poll, which was published in newspaper El Mundo, concludes this will be enough to get a majority from the 350 seats.

The prime minister Pedro Sanchez’s Spanish Socialist Workers' Party will only gather around 110 seats, the biggest share of seats but some way of gaining power.

During a press conference last week, Mr Sanchez confirmed his intention to call the election on April 28 after his minority givernment experienced the humiliation of having its budget voted down. A spokesperson for the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party told CNN the right-wing group's contesting the election as a coalition has created difficulties for the party. The spokesperson added: “It’s an agreement between right-wing forces and the extreme right, which is being sanitised.”

The conservative People's Party are being predicted to get 71-75 seats, while the centre-right Ciudadanos will take 54-58. The far-right party Vox could win 44-46 seats, according to the poll.

Five years ago Spain’s break-out party Podemos became a dazzling new lodestar for Europe’s lost and troubled left. But with a snap election just weeks away, it now risks a crash as spectacular as its rise. Has the leftwing populist model of ponytailed rebel Pablo Iglesias and his gang of talented young thinkers, so admired by many Jeremy Corbyn backers and others around Europe, proved a failure?

Polling suggests the party is in deep trouble. Podemos once led the polls and very nearly snatched leadership of Spain’s left from prime minister Pedro Sánchez’s Socialist party at the 2016 elections, but it is now only the voters’ fourth favourite party. The meltdown means it is slated to lose half its deputies, while Sánchez gallops ahead, taking well over twice as many votes as Podemos on 28 April.

The far-right populist party Vox is now also snapping at its heels, adding ideological insult to electoral injury. In April, Vox will target the same working-class city neighbourhoods as Podemos – claiming that immigrants and Catalan separatists, not austerity, are the problem. Mainstream parties will undoubtedly argue that this is merely one populism replacing another. That misses the point.

Although Spain has changed since Podemos picked up the banner of the indignado protesters and charged dramatically on to the scene in the 2014 European elections, the damage is largely self-inflicted. In the latest of a series of internal bust-ups, Iglesias’s former No 2, Iñigo Errejón, is leading an alternative coalition into elections for the powerful Madrid regional government in May.

Right wing in Spain is booming – Expect A Shock Result In Elections

We reported earlier this month that spanish Prime MinisterPedro Sanchez had called a general election which will take place on 28 April, after his minority government saw its socialist budget voted down.

The election, which will be spain's third in under four years, is a further sign of an increasingly fragmented political scene in one of the EU's larger states, with the strength of Catalonia‘s independence movement, and the revival of the Basque separatist movement having been given impetus by Calalonia's progress having dominated recent debate.

Mr Sanchez was already under pressure from within his own Socialist party ranks to cut short his term as his government, with only 85 seats in the 350 member Cortes, the Spanish Nayional Assembly, lost his weak parliamentary support this week after Catalan separatists joined opposition politicians to vote down his government’s 2019 national spending plans.

Recent opinion polls suggest no single can win enough votes to rule on its own, which is what we expect in Spain..

Immediately after the coalition’s soft coup last summer, Spain’s immigration policy changed dramatically with Sanchez declaring 'open doors' to all comers. Consequently, as has happened across The West when immigration policies unravel and large numbers of unskilled, uneducated, semi literate third world peasants and labourers start to flood into civilised nations, chaos inevitably ensues and voters turn to the more socially conservative parties for solutions.

This has happened on a consistent basis since Brexit and Trump won the day in 2016 – in Hungary, Czech, Austria, Italy and it is now happening in Spain, too. Even in Sweden and Germany, the once dominant (globalist) Social Democrats have lost their hegemony, while in France the populist yellow vest protest movement, three months after it started, is spawning paramilitary groups in response the President Macron's refusal to listen to his people and heavy handed use of The Gendarmerie to suppress protests.

The latest polls in Spain suggest that a centre-right and nationalist groups will easily regain key regions and large cities, such as Madrid and Valencia, which have been held by left or socialist authorities for four years.

The centre-right PP party would, together with the centrist Ciudadanos Party and the right wing VOX party, win those regions as they did last December in Andalusia, Spain’s most socialist province, giving them enough strength to form a government. Local, regional and European elections are scheduled for the 26th of May, 2019 too. Almost certainly, the leftist-separatist coalition will lose heavily there too indeed Spanish pundits claim the left could face a total wipe out in elections to the European Parliament.

Stories such as that of an 18 year old Spanish girl in Sabadell, Catalonia, who was raped by six Moroccan immigrants are now only too common in Spain, as are reports of sex crimes perpetrated by immigrants in Germany, Sweden, France, The netherlands, Britain, Belgium and Italy. This kind of news story, which is easily authenticated, is toxic to those political groups who campaign for open borders and talk of the cultural enrichment immigration brings. Nobody wants their daughter, wife, sister or friends 'culturally enriched' by men who see nothing wrong in raping a European woman.

This swing to the right seen all over the European Union is a reaction to the lax border controls and welfare-for-all policies pushed on member states by the EU and enthusiastically embraced by the left and globalist centre parties. Spaniards have now started worrying about their security and where their taxed income goes. Far-right lawmakers are set to be elected to Spain's parliament for the first time in nearly four decades.

The far-right party Vox would win up to 46 seats out of 350, according to a GESOP poll published by the El Periodico newspaper, while the GAD3 polling firm for the La Vanguardia newspaper forecast 16 seats. Vox is a newcomer on the Spanish political scene, and pollsters had underestimated its score in a regional election in Andalusia in December, where the anti-immigration party won 12 seats. Memories of the dictatorship of Francisco Franco, who died in 1975, meant Spain had long been been immune to the growing popularity of far-right parties in much of Europe, but these worries have faded as Spain faces new threats to its social stability.

‘Are we tolerant or STUPID?’ - Question Time Audience FURY Over UK ISIS Bride

The audience at the BBC TV QUESTION Time political Q & A erupted into applause last night when a member of the public attacked a suggestion from one of the expert pannelists who said that Shamima Begum, the 'ISIS bride' who left the UK to support the bid of ISIS, the bid to recreate the medieva; Islamic Caliphate, should be allowed back into Britain.

Home Secretary Sajid Javid announced on Wednesday that Ms Begum will be stripped of her UK passport. The Government claims she is also entitled to a Bangladeshi passport, thus won’t be made stateless. However the Bangladeshi foreign minister has firmly denied that Ms Begum is a national.

Referring to the ISIS recruit the audience member commented: “She went out there, with a group that wreak havoc on our streets and whether you like it or not she helped or supported them.

Yanis Varoufakis warns European Union 'DISINTEGRATION' is coming

YANIS Varoufakis has warned top Eurocrats Brexi is "a symptom of the disintegration of the European Union" as he laid into Brussels for "underestimating" the risk Britain leaving could pose to the Eurozone.

The former Greek Finance Minister warned the European Union is to embark on a path of "great decline" after Britain officially leaves the bloc on March 29. Yanis Varioufakis insisted Brexit is "one of the symptoms" signalling the union will slowly disintegrate as top Eurocrats fail to put the interests of European citizens at the "top of their list of priorities." Speaking to Channel 4 News, Mr Varoufakis said: "Brexit is a symptom of the disintegration of the European Union.

"It’s one of the many symptoms – it may be particularly impressive as an event and catastrophic, which it is, but it is only part of this dynamic of deconstruction of the European Union.

"The tragedy we have now is that you have a negotiation, or so-called negotiation, between Brussels and London, and neither Brussels nor London have the European people’s interests at the top of their lists of priorities."

The former financial repeatedly spoke out against the European Commission and their conduct in the Brexit negotiations, suggesting in January the bloc would employ crafty measures to extend the talks with Britain past the "fake" March deadline.

Mr Varoufakis insisted Brexit will be "detrimental" for Europe because of the close economic ties member states share with the United Kingdom and urged the negotiators to stop "playing chicken" with Theresa May.

He continued: "For Brussels what really matters is not to show to the rest of Europe that one can oppose Brussels and the European Union and get away with a good deal. For London, and in particular Theresa May, all that matters is the unity of the Tory Party and who cares – she doesn’t care – about the interests of the British people.

"But it will be detrimental to Europe. Brussels is underestimating the negative effect of Brexit on the Eurozone in particular.

"Let’s not forget that the Eurozone has a trade surplus of 145 billion euros with the United Kingdom. Playing chicken with London is not a good idea."

Mr Varoufakis added: "Nevertheless, I don’t believe in the Armageddon project fear scenario that after a hard Brexit on the 29th of March we are going to have a sudden implosion.

"I believe the planes will carry on flying – there will be some disruption at the borders but nothing gigantic at that moment. No great discontinuity, just a great decline both of the European Union and Britain."

Top CBS Reporter Admits "Mostly Liberal" Journalists Are Now "Political Activists"

This news story is not going to come as a surprise to our readers, but although its a US newsman blowing the whistle on mainstream media bias, things are just the same over the British side of the pond.

CBS News chief foreign affairs correspondent Lara Logan has broken ranks and admitted that journalists have lost their objectivity and become "political activists."

"There's no grey. It's all one way," said Logan.

During an appearance on the Mike Drop podcast with retired Navy SEAL Mike Ritland, Logan admitted that "the media everywhere is mostly liberal, not just the U.S.," adding that it was nearly impossible for viewers to decipher if they were being told the truth at any given time.

"85% of journalists are registered Democrats," Logan said. "How do you know you’re being lied to? How do you know you’re being manipulated? How do you know there’s something not right with the coverage? When they simplify it all [and] there’s no grey. It’s all one way. Well, life isn’t like that. If it doesn’t match real life, it’s probably not. Something’s wrong. For example, all the coverage on Trump all the time is negative. … That’s a distortion of the way things go in real life."

Logan says that the heavy bias has warped people's ability to know what's really true.

"When you turn on your computer, or you walk past the TV, or you see a newspaper headline in the grocery store If they’re all saying the same thing, the weight of that convinces you that it’s true," said Logan. "You don’t question it, because everyone is saying it."

She also admitted that journalists today are more or less lobbyists for liberal interests, adding that the weight of the liberal media machine overwhelms "the other side" unless people actively seek outlets such as Breitbart.

Noting recent comments by former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson, Logan said "Although the media has historically always been left-leaning, we’ve abandoned our pretense — or at least the effort — to be objective, today. … We’ve become political activists, and some could argue propagandists, and there’s some merit to that."

Logan said that MSM reports using anonymous or single government sources are bunk.

"That’s not journalism, it’s horseshit," she said - demanding more accountability.

"Responsibility for fake news begins with us."

UK Far Left Labour Party Splits Over Anti-Semitism and Brexit

As has been predicted for a while now, by both mainstream media ans alt_news commentators, the UK's far left Labour Party which has been tprn by internicine conflict since current leader Jeremy Corbyn, the long serving Trotskyite Member of Parliament for one of London's most fashionable inner city communities, became its leader. Labour, which once styled itself The People's Party is now the rich, trendy, virtue signalling party. And with its core support among immigrant communities and university brainwahed media professionals, it has little need to concern itself with the white working class, many of whom will always vote Labour for the welfare benefits, while others continue to vote for the party because their fathers and grandfathers did.

When seven Members of Parliament (MPs) announced their resignation today, not only did they come from a broad political spectrum within the party and a wide age range, they all cited the party's anti - Semitism under Corbyn's leadership as their main reason for leaving. They are:

The prominent role taken buy Ummuna in the breakaway suggests this group are a Blairite, globalist faction and even further removed from the party's working class gras roots than Corbyn's far left, intellectual supporters.

Stephen Kinnock MP, son of the former Labour leader Neil Kinnock, had predicted that there would “probably be some kind of splintering” over the weekend, when he urged the rebels to “stay in and fight” to take the party back from the extreme left Momentum group unleashed by Stalinist deputy leaders John McDonnell. which has become the source of most anti - Semitism within the Labour movement?

But how and when did the party that were it honest would call itself "The Jew - hating Labour Party," become anti - Semitic? How is partly the lurch to the left under Corbyn, with his supporters being formly on the side of victim-state Palestine in their low key war with capitalst Israel, 'when' is quite recently it seems.

Jewish Labour MP Luciana Berger, explaining her decision to leave Labour at a press conference this morning, said she was “embarrassed and ashamed” by the party that was once known for its Jewish roots in Britain's major cities. She has frequently spoken out about the abuse she has received from fellow Labour members in recent years, challenged Corbyn on his alleged anti-Semitism problem, and even had a bodyguard at last year’s Labour conference.

Also speaking at the launch of the new ‘Independent Group’ of 'centrist' (i.e. Europhile,) Members of Parliament who have, after much speculation, finally launched a break away from the Labour Party. Chukka Umunna has complained of a “broken” politics with parties that can’t represent the key political factors of the day. It is clear that Umunna is one of the leading figures behind this new party that isn’t yet a party, so it is worth looking at his comments to get a feel for where the group will position itself on the political spectrum, beyond the anti - Semitism headlines, Brexit and the crime wave in Sadiq Khan's London.

The big issue behind Umunna’s comments is a clear feeling that Britain’s politics is “broken” — his colleagues in the group also spoke of voters feeling “politically homeless”. In fact he has taken the wromg path by choosing the globalist route, Labour's traditional voters in the old industrial areas of Britain are abandoning Labour because they feel the party has abandoned its working clas supporters, and here is Ummuna,talking to billionaires and corporate investors, rather than the people whose votes he needs.

Following the schism, Dr Moshe Kantor, the President of the European Jewish Congress, spoke out to further highlight Labour’s anti-Semitism problem, calling on Corbyn himself to act to stamp out the hate within his party.

Rotherham child sex abuse scandal: More victims identifies, more cover ups exposed.

Facebook Negotiating Multibillion-Dollar US Fine As UK Labels "Digital Gangsters"

Facebook and its executives were labeled "digital gangsters" by a UKParliamentary inquiry into the social media giant's abuse of users privacy and collection of personal data from the devices of internet users who do not even have a Facebook account. The company should immediately be subject to statutory regulation the report published at the conclusion of the 18-month investigation by the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport  parliamentary committee recommended. 

The UK setback comes as rumours are circulating widely that the Silicon Valley tech giant is currently negotiating a multibillion-dollar settlement with the US Federal Trade Commission for similar offences to those it is accused of in Britain. If the US fine story is correct it will represent the largest penalty ever handed out to a tech company in agency history. 

The UK report from the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport select committee, for which Zuckerberg sealed his fate by not appearing to answer the committee's questions, found that Facebook purposefully obstructed its inquiry, according to The Guardian, while the social media giant failed to tackle Russian attempts to manipulate elections. That one is rather fanciful but hey, the Russians have to be blamed for everything, right.

"Democracy is at risk from the malicious and relentless targeting of citizens with disinformation and personalised ‘dark adverts’ from unidentifiable sources, delivered through the major social media platforms we use every day," warned Damian Collins, chairman of the committee.  The Guardian, reveals the report: 

  • Accuses Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s co-founder and chief executive, of contempt for parliament in refusing three separate demands for him to give evidence, instead sending junior employees unable to answer the committee’s questions.
  • Warns British electoral law is unfit for purpose and vulnerable to interference by hostile foreign actors, including agents of the Russian government attempting to discredit democracy.
  • Calls on the British government to establish an independent investigation into “foreign influence, disinformation, funding, voter manipulation and the sharing of data” in the 2014 Scottish independence referendum, the 2016 EU referendum and the 2017 general election.

"We need new independent regulation with a tough powers and sanctions regime to curb the worst excesses of surveillance capitalism and the forces trying to use technology to subvert our democracy," said Labour party deputy leader Tom Watson, adding that "Labour agrees with the committee’s ultimate conclusion – the era of self-regulation for tech companies must end immediately."

In short - people are too stupid to know when they're reading fake news, (which probably comes from Russia, ahem) and the UK government must now step in to control the flow of information, citizen. While the US and UK governments and organisations like the EU are right to stop the abuses of privacy by companies like Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft and Amazon, but we net users must resist attempts by government to use privacy abuse scandals as an excuse to impose censorship on web content.

The UK's Parliamentary inquiry was launched in 2017 in order to analyze fake news over social media, and had its scope widened in March 2018 in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica data harvesting scandal.

 The Guardian again:

The committee argues that, had Facebook abided by the terms of an agreement struck with US regulators in 2011 to limit developers’ access to user data, the scandal would not have occurred. “The Cambridge Analytica scandal was facilitated by Facebook’s policies,” it concludes. The 108-page report makes excoriating reading for the social media giant, which is accused of continuing to prioritise shareholders’ profits over users’ privacy rights. -The Guardian

The report stated, "Facebook continues to choose profit over data security, taking risks in order to prioritise their aim of making money from user data," reads the report, which concludes that "It seems clear to us that Facebook acts only when serious breaches become public.

The report makes some strong personal criticisms of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg over his outrageous statement that Facebook has never sold user data - a claim the report concludes is "simply untrue." 

"Mark Zuckerberg continually fails to show the levels of leadership and personal responsibility that should be expected from someone who sits at the top of one of the world’s biggest companies," said committee chair Collins in a statement. 

Labour Party deputy leader Tom Watson piled in, adding "Few people have treated our parliamentary democracy with contempt in the way Mark Zuckerberg has."

"If one thing is uniting politicians of all colours during this difficult time for our country, it is our determination to bring him and his company into line."  The report reveals Facebook is using its market dominance to crush rivals - using various technologies to prevent them from competing with Facebook or its subsidiaries. 

In response to the parliamentary report, Facebook gave a typical response, saying it was "pleased to have made a significant contribution," adding that "We are open to meaningful regulation and support the committee’s recommendation for electoral law reform." So Zuckerberg thinks insulting the government of a nation where many users reside by ignoring their request that her personally answered questions is a 'significant contribution?' The man isn't right in the head.

Navratilova reignites criticism over transgender women in sports

by Arthur Quinell

Tennis legend Martina Navratilova has again come under fire for comments about transgender women in sport, reiterating her belief that some of the rules currently in place are “insane and cheating,” and unfair to other women.

Navratilova predictably attracted a lot of hate attacks from left wing idiots and transgender fascists back in December 2018 when she tweeted: “You can't just proclaim yourself a female and be able to compete against women.

“There must be some standards, and having a penis and competing as a woman would not fit that standard.”

She's right of course, it is scientifically proven that a male has a penis and testes and a woman has a vagina and ovaries, but ironically the people who scream and shout that we must "believe the science" on climate change, are quite happy to go against scientific facts when it comes to defending one of their sacred cow causes.

The 18-time Grand Slam winner was accused of “bullying” (agian that's ironic coming from the biggest bullies in political activism, the Tranny lobby,) and being “discriminatory” with the comments, and was involved in a particularly bitter spat with Canadian transgender cyclist, chick-with-a-dick, Rachel McKinnon.

Navratilova, 62, later apologized if her comments had been construed as transphobic, and vowed to “educate myself better on this issue [and] meantime I will be quiet about it.”

But the tennis great has now plunged back into the row with an article in The Sunday Times. In it, the Czech-born legend says she has looked further into the issue, and that her views “have strengthened.”

Of course they have. Anybody would feel miffed if they had simply told the truth and had then been bullied into apologising for that hrinous crime by a bunch of girlie men and hairy arsed, dildo weilding dykes.

“To put the argument at its most basic: a man can decide to be female, take hormones if required by whatever sporting organisation is concerned, win everything in sight and perhaps earn a small fortune, and then reverse his decision and go back to fatherimg babies if he so desires,” wrote Navratilova, who is a prominent gay rights campaigner.

“It’s insane and it’s cheating. I am happy to address a transgender woman in whatever form she prefers, but I would not be happy to compete against her. It would not be fair,” she added.

“Simply reducing hormone levels – the prescription most sports have adopted – does not solve the problem.

One has to admire her courage. since the gay, lesbian and bisexual lobby embraced transfascism they have been taken over by whinging carping mental cases who think their path to happiness lies through having their genitals mulitated, and then whn they find people treat them like freaks, enlist the support of university brainwashed snowflakes, who are only too glad to be offended on anyone's behalf, to bully honest campaigners like Martina Navartilova into silence.

Doctors admit vaccines are harmful and turn our immune systems against us

This article is reproduced from Science News under 'fair use' terms in the public interest.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recently included vaccine skeptics – people who are hesitant to vaccinate themselves or their children because they are concerned about the potential health risks – on their annual list of “global health threats,” along with serious dangers like superbugs, climate change, the Ebola virus, HIV and air pollution. The WHO claims that “vaccine hesitancy” increases the risk of a resurgence in diseases they claim are fully preventable through vaccination.

The WHO is by no means alone in its position. Many governments, medical professionals and members of the mainstream media have attacked anti-vaxxers – as they are known – claiming that they are selfish people who put the health of the greater majority at risk. These pro-vaccine groups and individuals like to infer that to question vaccines is both unscientific and dangerous.

In recent years, however, a growing number of highly respected scientists and doctors have started questioning mainstream vaccine propaganda as the results of their own, unbiased studies raise alarming questions about the long-term safety of vaccines. These issues particularly relate to the volume of vaccinations administered to small children and the adjuvants and ingredients used in the manufacture of these vaccines. The latest such study was recently published in the journal Pharmacological Research, warning that many, many people are at increased risk of developing autoimmune diseases after receiving vaccinations.

Weaponizing our own immune systems

Celeste McGovern, an award-winning journalist writing for Green Med Info, noted that the study’s lead author, Yehuda Shoenfeld, is a highly respected scientist in the field of human immunity. Shoenfeld is the author of multiple papers and textbooks, some of which are viewed as the very cornerstones of autoimmunological clinical practice. Unsurprisingly, Shoenfeld has become known as the “Godfather of Autoimmunology.”

Autoimmunology is the study of how the body’s own defense system sometimes turns against itself, resulting in the development of diseases like multiple sclerosis, arthritis, Guillain-Barre syndrome and others.

One of the causes of this immune system malfunction is vaccination. As the authors note in the study abstract:
Vaccinations have been used as an essential tool in the fight against infectious diseases, and succeeded in improving public health. However, adverse effects, including autoimmune conditions may occur following vaccinations (autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants–ASIA syndrome). It has been postulated that autoimmunity could be triggered or enhanced by the vaccine immunogen contents, as well as by adjuvants, which are used to increase the immune reaction to the immunogen.

The research team defined those who are at increased risk of such autoimmune conditions developing after vaccination as follows:
[W]e defined four groups of individuals who might be susceptible to develop vaccination-induced ASIA: patients with prior post-vaccination autoimmune phenomena, patients with a medical history of autoimmunity, patients with a history of allergic reactions, and individuals who are prone to develop autoimmunity (having a family history of autoimmune diseases; asymptomatic carriers of autoantibodies; carrying certain genetic profiles, etc.).

The study’s authors went at pains to stress that these potential groups of individuals represent only a small percentage of the population and that vaccines are generally safe. However, as noted by McGovern, this is simply not true because of the sheer volume of people who fall into one or more of these categories, including:

  • Anyone who has a preexisting autoimmune condition;
  • People who have had previous reactions to vaccines (which doctors almost always overlook);
  • Patients with a history of allergic reactions, particularly to eggs (something which nurses and others who administer vaccines hardly ever check with vaccine recipients); and
  • People prone to developing autoimmunity. This is where it gets really interesting, because this would include smokers (about 18 percent of all Americans), people with high estrogen levels (anyone on the contraceptive pill or hormone replacement therapy), and people with low vitamin D levels (studies indicate that three quarters of all American teens and adults are vitamin D deficient).
In other words, based on this study’s findings, the vast majority of us are at increased risk of developing an autoimmune disease after being vaccinated. But nobody will warn you about that, and if you dare to question the vaccine status quo you’ll be branded a quack or a “global health threat.”

Sweden's Feminist Party Relaunches

They're hoping to attract the unfuckable lardarse vote

Swedish Feminist Party
Picture Source: Deutsche Welle

They call themselves antiracist feminists and drew international attention with media-friendly antics, such as burning 100,000 Swedish kronor (€10,000, $13,000) to underline pay inequity. Now Sweden's Feminist Initiative has elected a new leadership team to defend their one seat in the hotle contested European elections in May when left wing, pro - EU parties are expected to suffer huge losses.

FI focuses on equality, diversity, antiracism and environmental issues, arguing that society's power structures need to change.

"We need to have people who have not only the knowledge but also the experience of being in those bodies that usually are discussed," said Gita Nabavi, who was elected to lead the party together with Farida al-Abani on Sunday, "like being a woman in the room when women's salaries are being discussed, or being a transgender person in the room when we're discussing health issues or health care for transgender people."

These attention seeking virtue signaller haven't heard then that real feminists despise the Transgender gang and only political activists masquerading as feminist to advance a far left agenda regard surgically created facsimilies of women as worth of feminist support?

Perhaps a party like FI could only have emerged in a place as conscious of issues of equality and with a male population as emasculated by politically correct indoctrination as Sweden. The country is known for its strong social security net, including policies that allow both mothers and fathers 480 days of paid leave to care for their children. Many view the country as a role model when it comes to gender equality, a label the government underlined in 2014 when it announced it was pursuing a feminist foreign policy to promote human rights for girls and women globally. Discrimination based on sexual orientation was banned in 2011.

On the other hand these liberal - progressive policies have brought Sweden to the brink of collapsing into a dystopian failed state.

Spanish Socialist Budget Fails As Budget Rejected; New Elections Expected

Spaniards take their grievances to the streets
Source: https://nation.com.pk/>

We predicted lasat year when the socialist leader Pedto Sancjez usurped the Spanish government after the collapse of the minority government led by Mariano Rajoy collapsed, could not last. In a widely expected but destabilizing development, Spanish conservatives and pro-independence Catalonians voted to back a slate of amendments to a government budget on Wednesday by a wide margin of 191 votes out of 350, defeating the finnce bill. This is equivalent to a vote of no cofidence, setting the stage for new elections.

If as is likely, elections go ahead it would be Spain's third general election in less than four years, the previous three having failed to produce a coalition capable of holding a majority in the national assembly. Following the vote that led to the formation Rajoy's failed governmemt produced such an intractible outcome the King had to order the defeated government to continue in office, which they did until defeated in a confidence vote. Reluctance to hold another election led to the creation of left wing loony Sanchez's fragile socialist-led minority government last year. Bloomberg reported that Sanchez might wait until his cabinet meeting on Friday to call for the elections, which would most likely be set for April 28, according to local media reports.

Sanchez relied on support from Basque and Catalan nationalists to seize power from Mariano Rajoy's conservatives in a no-confidence vote last year, the Guardian reported, but those separatist, regional parties tend to social conservatinsm (both are Eurosceptic,) and were not likely to support the socialist legislation Sanchez put forward.

Sanchez only has 84 socialist lawmakers in the chamber, making passing any legislation a challenge. And with leaders of the Catalonian separatist movement going on trial this week in Madrid, Catalonian lawmakers are hesitant to be seen backing the government. In a sign that the unique form of gridlock ushered in by the Catalonian separatist movement might not be broken any time soon, the socialists are leading in the polls. But with the Catalonians opposing everything and everyone, it's unlikely that the largest party will be able to claim the majority needed to pass legislation.

Though his party is still leading in the polls, the most likely outcome for Sanchez is defeat, according to BBG. In that case a coalition of center-right parties could form a government if they are prepared to do a deal with the separatists. While the socialists are ahead in opinion polls, which show them on around 30% of voting intentions, but the two main right-leaning parties together poll at more than 30% while the Eurosceptic party Podemos, currently with 67 seats in the assembly are the jokers in the pack.

Project Fear: NHS Stockpiling Body Bags As No Deal Brexit Looms

Dead" alt="body bags" hspace=10 vspace=10>
Source: Zero Hedge

Those who hold democracy in contempt and will do anything they possible can, legal or otherwise, to overturn the Referendim result and keep us in the EU have just come over all Spinal Tap and turned the Project Fear fake news generator up to eleven. Ever since the reult of the 2016 Brexit referendum was anounced, the scare stories about the dire consequences of leaving the EU have broken in mainsytream news seemingly at a rathe onf one a minute.

British voters have been subjected to a daily barrage of predictions forecassting doom and destruction as the UK government and business community have warned of a collapsing economy, hyper - inflation, fifty per cent unemployment, an exodis of businesses to EU nations, shortages of medicines, food riots, household waste not collected, blood in the streets, flights to and from British airports grounded, and a plague of Biblical plagues that "experts" have warned will happen if we leave the EU without a deal that would effectively make us a vassal state.

In the last two weeks alone, leaks to the British press have warned about the revival of a Cold War era-plan to airlift the Queen out of London, the risk of malnutrition and starvation as retailers run out of fresh food and medicine, and an explosion of immigrant-fueled crime as the EU switches off access to various and sundry criminal databases (not that Europol databases have ever helped catch a criminal though they have led to the arrest of people suspected of 'hate speech' and other crimes against the doctrine of politically correct thinking and I know I'm on the watch list for having mocked EU leaders.

It's all bollocks of course.

But, as if those prophecies of a Mad Max post - apocalyptic dystopia aren't vivid enough, a reporter for UK TV news channel ITN has leaked a letter from Health Minister Stephen Hammond advising our elected representatives that the NHS has begun prepping for a 'no - deal' Brexit by building up stockpiles of emergency medical supplies - including stockpiles of body bags - in preparation for what the Bank of England, No. 10 Downing Street and others have decried as the "worst-case scenario of a 'no-deal' Brexit". In fact that in itself is fake news, the Prime Minister is on record as having said "No deal is better than a bad deal," but that was before she tried to sell her worst possible deal imaginable to the country.

As RT commented, Hammond emphasised body bags as "essential products" imported via the EU. They are being stockpiled to guard against "serious disruptions" to the NHS Hammond noted. In fact most of the body bags uised in the UK are made in Canada. They may well be bought through a distributor in an EU member state, but there is absolutely no problem with picking up a phone, dialling a Toronto number and saying "Please can you put us a consignment of body bags on the next boat down the St. Lawrence. Simples.

The Conservative MP for Wimbledon, also listed a number of other medical products, consumables and equipment - including various medicines and vaccines - that are being stockpiled. We have not yet had time to look for alternative sources for him.

Unsurprisingly, the leftie, Remainer twitterati have had a field day with the "body bags" revelation. The idots seem to believe it.

Brexit Is Now About More Than Leaving The EU

Until now we have not posted anything in the past few days on Brexit. Our position is well know to our readers, let's face it, the saturation coverage left nothing new to be said. The whole thing is a craptangle, but it was obvious from when the Conservative Party engineered a situation in which Theresa May was left as the only candidate for the leadership that there could be no other outcome.

EU "Sounds Alarm" Over New US Sanctions On Russia; Germany Threatens Retaliation
Late on Friday (21/07/17), Congressional negotiators agreed to advance a cross - party bill that would punish Russia for its (alleged) interference in the 2016 election according to the Wall Street Journal. And while it seems improbable that President Trump would sign the bill if it reaches his desk, the loudest complaint about the bill to date has emerged not from the Oval Office, but from US allies in NATO and the European Union ...

Nigel Farage Swipes Back At Irrational, Screeching, Crazy Clinton
US Democratic Party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton launched a hysterical, irrational attack, filled with half truths and blatant lies, against the most prominent figure in the campaign to get Britain out of the EU (Brexit), UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage, during a speech at a rally today. Mrs Clinton, responding to Farage's address to a large and enthusiastic audience at a Donald Trump rally, may have been rattled at the prospect of having such a hihly effective campaigner in the rival camp ...

Rebellion Against EU Authoritarianism Escalates As 8th Member Nation Threatens Referendum
Brussels went too far, they crossed the line in moving from an economic union to a political pan - European political empire. In the end it was a race as to which member state would quit first, Britain, Natherlands, Denmark or Italy. In the event it is Britain.

Is Brexit A Harbinger Of Doom For The 'Experts' The Brexit vote, the decision by a democratic majority in Britain to leave the European Union has sent shockwaves around the world. Not only does the EU now face a tsunami of departures, the usurpation of democracy by 'experts' ( technocrats ) has been challenged and exposed as a sham.

The Hypocrisy and Snobbery Of The Remain Campaign And The Antidote
When I had to defriend a Facebook contact because she was arguing in favour of the EU, it was not simply because I support Brexit that I had become pissed of with her, it was the snobbish and condescending way she dismissed supporters of LEAVE and their case. People are entitled to their opinion on the European Union, but they should check the 'facts' they post in support of their arguments.

The Labour Case For Brexit by Kate Hoey M.P.
After my short intro is a savage indictment by Brexit supporting Labour MP Kate Hoey of the way the Labour Party has abandoned the working class and is now trying to betray the party's proud heritage and its roots in the industrial areas by taking Britain into an undemocratic, corporate controlled, capitalist friendly, elite dominated globalist control freak project.

Dutch Referendum This Week Shows why We Should Leave The EU.
Few of you were aware probably that there is an EU referendum vote in The Netherlands this week. As usual with anything negative about the EU barely a word has been printed in the topic in mainstream media and the silence from our notionally unbiased national broadcaster The Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has been deafening.

French, Belgians, Dutch, Italians Follow Britain in Euroskepticism

Big Data is here, How do we protect our privacy?"

If you haven't heard of Big Data you either haven't been living on this planet or you're an ostrich and bury your head in the sand. Bid data when coupled with Artificial Intelligence can, we are told, tell us how busy the shops are long before the accountants had added up the months takings, how much metal the big warehouses are hoarding or whether office space is in high demand in a particular area.

All of this information can be obtained from just one analytics firm, which gathers information from a multitude of sources, some far more creepy than the almost total sureveillance of our online activity, for example a fleet of drones, planes and satellites that constantly photograph business premises, car parks, places of entertainment. While those deal in general information you, as an individual can be tracked via your smartphone either walking around on public transport or in your car it it is a fairly recent model with factory fitted GPS.

A company named RS Metrics sells investors data based on obsessively photographing parking lots and storage facilities from thousands of feet in the air. At regular intervals, it flies over the target areas taking digital photographs. Based simply on the flow of traffic in and out of mall car parks, business parks or logistics centres, the company claims it can generate estimates of sales, hiring, production or inventories weeks before the official numbers come out. To make such clams based on number of cars in the car park or people milling around pedestrian areas seems rather ambition, but businesses are buying it. We can only wonder if the people who buy information from RS Metrics to give them competitive advantage over their rivals ever pause to ask themselves what information RS Metrics might be selling to rivals about their customers.

Everything we do, everything we browse and everywhere we go is now recordable. The problem is no longer that it is hard to find out something. The problem is parsing the important from the irrelevant. The uncritical view of Big Tech fanboys is that big data heralds the start of a revolution that will change the way we live and work even more radically than previous Industrial Revolutions have. But human beings are not machines, we are not predictable, therefore the more data you have the more difficult it is to draw meaningful conclusions from that data.

Managing the torrents of available data has become a vital task for maintaing a company's profitability, so much so that it has spawned a new profession, Data Scientists, thoigh nobody seems able to define what a data scientist is. Even with that uncrtainly attached to it, data science is said to be driving a new era of economic efficiency. RS Metrics might claim in their sales pitch that developing or buying in the right algorithm can help investors predict movements the stock and commodity exchanges, companies develop and market the right product and social media sites develop addictive techniques to hold our attention.

Are we prepared for this high tech era in which machines make so many decisions for us? Recent privacy scandals and the public outrage over suicide and self-harm images published by groups hosted on Instagram and Facebook show us blind algorithmic “efficiency” can generate undesirable and sometimes downright dangerous results. Once a website has 'learned' what we 'like', it's software will tweak our profile to give us more of it.

I recall an instance a few years ago when I search using a term on the lines of Hollywood movie star and American stage actress and the name Tallulah Bankhead. For the next few days links to videos billed as " Hollywood star Jennifer Aniston head action," or "see movie star Cameron Diaz give head," proliferated in the results from my searches. I did not check out any of those results, they were obviously fake, but that exemplifies the stupidity of Artificial Intelligence. Not many well ranked results on Tallulah Bankhead but hey, the words Hollywood, star and head appear in his search terms ...

Instagram, and their parent Facebook might now be trying to tackle the particular issue of self harm, while governments are trying to pressure all search operators to act to suppress 'hate speech' and 'fake news' (both of which terms cannot be legally defined,) but the general trend of using Big Data and Artificial Intelligence to make stupid decisions is, with the wind of media hype behind it, only going to accelerate.

Italy Eurosceptics Give EU The Finger, Seek Bilateral Trade Deal With UK.

Italian anti EU rebels threaten to Destabilise EU.

Reports from Rome reveal the Eurosceptic coalition governing Italy is seeking “closest possible ties” with the UK and is ready to threaten the unity of the European Union by making a bilateral deal with The U.K. to protect its citizens and busineses by enabling interference - free business links with Britain.

Italy's committment to maintaining free trade links wirh Britain in the event of a 'no deal' Brexit flies in the face of an appeal by Brussels to EU member states not to undermine its negotiating position on Brexit by seeking bilateral agreements between EU member states and the UK, The Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Portugal and Denmark have also expressed concerns at the effect on their economies from losing a market of over sixty million people. Meanwhile non EU nations, freed from EU bureaucracy are queueing to do business with Braitain.

As Brexit day draws near, the eurosceptic Lega-Five Star Movement coalition is growing increasingly worried about the consequences a no deal scenario could have on Italy’s fragile economy. They are not the only EU member to fear that attempts by Brussels to 'punish' the UK for leaving will hurt member states more than Britain This pushed the populist government sitting in Rome to draw up emergency plans to safeguard financial stability and save trade with London from disruption in case of a no-deal Brexit.

BBC Journalist Allegedly Likens Working Class Men to ‘Amazonian Cannibals’

It's always entertaining when lefties forget they are supposed to believe in equality, tolerance and diversity and show what nasty little snobs they really are. BBC political magazine show Panorama’s John Sweeney, who likes to parade his 'right on' socialism in public, is reported to have been caught referring to working-class men as being like “cannibals from Amazonia” in an undercover video released by one of the left's favourite hate figures, former EDL leader Tommy Robinson. What makes Robinson a prime target for left wing bigots is of course that he was born into their caste.

Robinson, real name julian Yaxley - Lennon come from a middle clas family but when the father abandoned them, Robinson's mother fell into poverty and ended up living in social housing in a town with one of the biggest Muslim ghettos in Britain, Luton.

The video in which Sweeny is said to have launched into the appallingly prejudiced attack on the working class was posted to Robinson’s social media accounts on both Facebook and Instagram over the weekend and shows the former English Defence League leader confronting Sweeney over his comments. Sweeney seems to describe meeting a working-class white man named Danny in a BBC green room saying, “it was unusual to meet a white working class male in the Newsnight green room.”

Well at least that is probably true, working class voices don't get much airtime from the BBC, instead of giving them a voice the "Ministry Of Truth" hires 'experts' who have never done an honest day's work in their lives to pontificate about the ignorance, racism, homophobia etc. etc. that are qualities of all white, working class British males.

Robinson has also published live streams on Facebook claiming he has more undercover footage of both Sweeney and of people involved with far-left activist organisation HOPE not Hate who are claimed to have sat in on interviews filmed for the Panorama documentary on Robinson apparently labelled with the working title “Tommy Takedown.”

The free speech activist says the full footage will be compiled into a documentary and shown in Manchester on February 23rd outside of the BBC’s offices in the city. He has also promised (threatened?) that he will post further footage from the documentary every 72 hours, starting on Tuesday evening.

So far, neither Sweeney, the BBC, nor HOPE Not Hate have commented on Robinson’s released footage or claims of further revelations, although HOPE not HATE senior researcher Joe Mulhall briefly locked his Twitter account following the release of the footage.

Mother Arrested in Front of Children for Calling Trans Activist a Man

In the UK's latest and probably looniest to date example of politically correct fascism, British police arrested a mother in the presence of her children. Her Crime? She committed the heinous offence of calling a male top female transexual a man on Twitter. A judge subsequently issuing an injunction banning her from referring to the “former male identity”.

38-year-old Kate Scottow, of Hitchin, Hertfordshire, told reporters she was “arrested in my home by three officers, with my autistic ten-year-old daughter and breastfed 20-month-old son present” in comments posted to the Mumsnet online forum, according to the Mail on Sunday.

“I was then detained for seven hours in a cell with no sanitary products (which I said I needed) before being interviewed then later released under investigation… I was arrested for harassment and malicious communications because I called someone out and misgendered them on Twitter.”

The Mail on Sunday say Hertfordshire Police have confirmed the arrest, telling the newspaper: “We take all reports of malicious communication seriously.”

Specifically, Ms Scottow is said to have been arrested for “deadnaming” trans activist Stephanie Hayden, who because we cannot use his birth name will for the rest of this aritcle be known as Tony The Tranny Terrorist, during an argument over whether trans people should be able to legally change gender through a simple self-identification process with little or no medical oversight.

Tony The Tranny Terrorist first made headlines in late 2018 for launching legal proceedings against comedy writer Graham Linehan and creator of the clasic Father Ted series for using his male birth name, describing this as “a gross violation of my privacy and who gets to know this information about me… I am quite prepared to resort to the law if people cross the line.”

The Daily Stirrer has news for Tony The Tranny Terrorist, "Gross violation of your privacy my arse, you snivelling little creep, nobody gives a flying fuck about you, you are a nobody and this use of the law for the purposes of attention seeking is sad and pathetic.

Court action appears to have been taken against Scottow, also, with Deputy Judge Jason Coppel QC issuing an interim injunction against her which bans her from “referencing [Hayden] as a man” or alluding to Hayden’s “former male identity”.

Hayden has previously backed campaigns to take down billboards sporting the dictionary definition of a woman as an “adult human female” as offensive, and to force academics who dispute whether someone born male can really become a woman to step down from university positions, according to The Times.

Gay Rights Lobby Calls for Ban on LGBT Therapy After Finding Hundreds of Health Workers Believe in a Cure The Daily Stirrer has noted many times that sheeple on the left of the political spectrum get very confused on finding not everybody agrees with their world view. but rather than accept they are bigots they turn on those who dissent. No surprise then that gay activist working in the NHS are turning on African, middle eastern and east Europan colleagues who believe homosexuality is a sin.

Germany Rejects Yazidi Asylum Seekers Fleeing Presecution By Islamic Extremists

Yazidi refugees

Germany, with its ruling elite of hand wringing, breast beating, teeth - gnashing, politically correct virtue signallers is showing its true colours as, in common with neighbour Sweden, a hypocritical regime that will give Muslims a free pass to rapoe and kill (because they've been persectued,) but will not act to protect minorities persecuted by extremist governments in counties run by Islamic fundamentalists. The EU's largest nation and most powerful economy, which righteously lecturing other EU member states on the need to take refugees and asylum seekers, is taking in fewer and fewer Yazidi refugees, according to a German newspaper report.

The religious minority was terrorized by the "Islamic State" during the militant group's campaign in Iraq and Syria and hundreds, possibly thousands of Yazidi women were raped and used as sex slaves by IsIS terrorists. Because Yazidi beliefs, women who have been 'defiled' by non - Yazidi men are no longer marriagable, or if married will be rejected by their husbands, thus the mass rapes were in fact a genocode weapon.

Germany approved about 60 percent of asylum applications from the Yazidi minority of Syrian and Iraq in 2018, the Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung newspaper reported on Saturday (9 February,). At roughly 5,300 refugees the figure represents a significant drop from the previous year, when 85 percent of Yazidi asylum-seekers, most of them from Iraq, made successful claims. The figures were provided by the Foreign Ministry in response to an official request from the Left party.

The Yazidis are a Kurdish-speaking minority in nothern Syria and northern Iraq, distinguished from the mainstream Muslim population by their unique monotheistic religion. In 2014, the ancestral territory occupied by the Yazidi,the Sinjar region of northern Iraq and Syria, which has been respected by bother the "monstrous tyrants" of the region, Saddam Husein and Bashar al Assad whom western leaders have been so eager to demonize, was seized by "Islamic State" (IS) militants. Hundreds of thousands of Yazidis were forced to flee the indiscriminate slaughter. United Nations aid agencies estimated that around 5,000 Yazidi men were murdered though many are still unaccounted for, while 7,000 women were abducted and enslaved. Many Yazidi refugees have ended up in Armenia, Georgia and Russia. About 150,000 live in Germany — the largest community of Yazidis in exile. Yazidi woman and former IS prisoner Nadia Murad received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2018 for her campaign to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war.

EU Goes The Full None Orwells

Some years ago a blogger we know, Citizen Wells, created an award rating for government and corporate control freakery schemes involving misinformation, censorship or the promotion of fake narratives. He called the awards The Golden Orwells. We adopted the awards and gave to any story of government, corporate or mainstream media suppression or distortion of truth that reached more that three on our Orwell-Huxley-Dick dystopianometer (OHD) scale, named in honour of the three twentieth century prophets of social decay and the rise of fascistic authoritarianism. No story ever reached nine,(the highest score,) which would be the equivalent level of dystopian chos to Comunist China, Soviet Russia, or Pol Pot's Cambodia. After about a year we had to stop handing out Golden Orwells, there were just too many nominees for our judges to evaluate.

But now we have a story that has scored an unprecedented nine Golden Orwells on the OHD scale on the firstr day after it broke.

Though we were forwarned to some extent, the EU has now launched a comprehensive Action Plan against Disinformation. Based on the paranoid rantings of the French Boy President Emmanuwl Macron, the plan's purpose, according to a EU Commission press release, is apparently to "protect its democratic systems and public debates and in view of the 2019 European elections as well as a number of national and local elections that will be held in Member States by 2020". And M. Macron, with the backing of the European Union's ruling bureaucrats, intends to spread the authoritarian EU's propaganda the incontrovertible truths that there is no dissatisfaction with EU policy except in Britain and Italy, the people of Europe (except for the xenophobes of Britain and the Islamophobes of Italy and Hungary, are wildly enthusiastic about the idea of being butched and replaced by migrants from Africa and the middle east, that Muslim communities have not set up any no go zones for police, emergency services or Europeans in any European cities, that the Gilets Jaunes protests in France that have disrupted national life over the past twelve weeks are the work of a handful of left wing extremists and a new die hard neo - Nazis, and that EU cituzens are eager for their proud ancient nations to be subsumed in a Federal European Superstate called Greater Germany.

Back in June last year leaders of EU member states met in the European Council and invited the European Commission "to present... an action plan by December 2018 with specific proposals for a coordinated EU response to the challenge of disinformation (aka 'fake news'...." ironic really as the EU has for decades been one of the world's biggest generators of fake news. It is this action plan that the Commission presented to the public on December 5.

The Action Plan focuses on four areas:

  1. Improved detection of disinformation (the European Commission dedicated 5 million euros toward this project and seemingly expects Member states to contribute on a national level, as well).
  2. Coordinated Response -- the EU institutions and Member States will set up a Rapid Alert System "to facilitate the sharing of data and assessments of disinformation campaigns". The Rapid Alert System will be set up by March 2019 and "will be complemented by further strengthening relevant resources".
  3. Online platforms and industry are called on to ensure "transparency of political advertising, stepping up efforts to close active fake accounts, labelling non-human interactions (messages spread automatically by 'bots') and cooperating with fact-checkers and academic researchers to detect disinformation campaigns and make fact-checked content more visible and widespread" in accordance with a previously signed Code of Practice against Disinformation.
  4. Raising awareness and empowering citizens: In addition to "targeted awareness campaigns", the "EU institutions and Member States will promote media literacy through dedicated programmes. Support will be provided to national multidisciplinary teams of independent fact-checkers and researchers to detect and expose disinformation campaigns across social networks". In 2018, citizens are suddenly no longer "media literate" and need to be "empowered" in order to be told how and what to think.

The Action Plan is constructed on the previously introduced, Code of Practice on Disinformation, which the online tech giants -- Facebook, Google, Twitter and Mozilla -- signed in October 2018. The Code of Practice is needed, because, according to EU Commissioner for the Security Union Sir Julian King:

"The weaponisation of on-line fake news and disinformation poses a serious security threat to our societies. The subversion of trusted channels to peddle pernicious and divisive content requires a clear-eyed response based on increased transparency, traceability and accountability. Internet platforms have a vital role to play in countering the abuse of their infrastructure by hostile actors and in keeping their users, and society, safe."

Or to put it in plain english, "Those fucking Russian collaborators at Russia Today keep telling the truth about Europe.

In September, Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society Mariya Gabriel said of the Code of Practice:

"This is the first time that the industry has agreed on a set of self-regulatory standards to fight disinformation worldwide, on a voluntary basis. The industry is committing to a wide range of actions, from transparency in political advertising to the closure of fake accounts and demonetisation of purveyors of disinformation, and we welcome this. These actions should contribute to a fast and measurable reduction of online disinformation. To this end, the Commission will pay particular attention to its effective implementation.

"The Code of Practice should contribute to a transparent, fair and trustworthy online campaign ahead of the European elections in spring 2019, while fully respecting Europe's fundamental principles of freedom of expression, a free press and pluralism."

According to Andrus Ansip, Vice-President responsible for the Digital Single Market, the Code of Practice and the Action Plan against Disinformation are meant "to protect our democracies against disinformation. We have seen attempts to interfere in elections and referenda, with evidence pointing to Russia as a primary source of these campaigns."

Really? Is there any evidence for this other than unverifiable stories generated by the propaganda agencies of pro - federalisation EU member states. And they call me and my friends 'conspiracy theorists'.

EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini stated:

"It's our duty to protect this space and not allow anybody to spread disinformation that fuels hatred, division, and mistrust in democracy."
It sounds like an honourable, public spirited enterprise when you say it quickly. The EU wants to protect citizens from "fake news" and from the interference in national and European democratic processes by foreign powers such as Russia.

The problem is that this laudable initiative comes from an organization that has a track record decades long for censoring information and opinion in Europe, thereby making it difficult to take these stated intentions at face value. This is, after all, the European Commission that in May 2016 agreed with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Microsoft, on a "Code of Conduct on countering illegal online hate speech online" (Google+ and Instagram also joined the Code of Conduct in January 2018).

The Code of Conduct commits the social media companies to review and remove, within 24 hours, "illegal hate speech". According to the Code of Conduct, when companies receive a request to remove content, they must "assess the request against their rules and community guidelines and, where applicable, national laws on combating racism and xenophobia..." Or, to cut out the diplomatic doublespeak again, the social media giants, all of which have unashamedly displayed the far left political bias usually associated with the brain - fried hippys of Silicon Valley, agree to act as voluntary adjudicators of suspect content posted on their platforms on behalf of the European Union.

In addition to the Code of Conduct, the EU is running several initiatives aimed at increasing censorship. Recently, for example, the EU requested research proposals on programmes "to monitor, prevent and counter hate speech online" even though no clear legal definition of what constitutes 'hate speech' exists. The current situation sems to be if a Christian, Jew, Pagan, atheist or 'other' says, "Well I think some aspects of Islam are not very nice," it is hate speech, while if an Muslim extremist cleric preaches from his pulpit, "Soldiers of Allah must kill event infidel," that is perfectly acceptable because multiculturalism and diversity.

The EU Commission also sponsors projects that "guide" journalists on what to write: The EU's Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme (REC) has financed the publication of a handbook with guidelines for journalists on how to write about migrants and migration. The guidelines form part of the RESPECT WORDS project -- also financed by the EU -- which "aims to promote quality reporting on migrants and ethnic and religious minorities as an indispensable tool in the fight against hate".

The handbook guidelines state, among other things, that journalists should:

"Take care not to further stigmatise terms such as 'Muslim' or 'Islam' by associating them with particular acts... Don't allow extremists' claims about acting 'in the name of Islam' to stand unchallenged. Highlight... the diversity of Muslim communities... where it is necessary and newsworthy to report hateful comments against Muslims, mediate the information. Challenge any false premises on which such comments rely".
In other words, the guidelines ask (in a slightly threatening way) journalists to disinform the public by not mentioning the jolly Muslim practices of throwing homosexuals off tall buildings, publicly beheading adulterers or stoning disobedient wives (disturbing images). How, then, should one logically respond to an entire EU-sponsored "Action Plan against Disinformation" if the EU forbids reporting of the truth?

And, as the EU's efforts to 'punish' the UK for choosing to leave the organisation obsesses all broadcast and print media, let us remind ourselves the European Commission recently expressed its strong disapproval of Austria's decision to pull out of the UN's "Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration." The Compact stipulates that media outlets that do not support the UN's migration agenda will not be eligible for public funding,has taken that on board as policy. and the EU How does that square with "fully respecting Europe's fundamental principles of freedom of expression, a free press and pluralism"?

What Europe should expect, as this Nazi style assault on truth, free speech and free access to information Action Plan against Disinformation is rolled out, is, in fact -- more censorship, more authoritarianism, more propaganda and less freedom.

Fiat News Threat To Truth

Exposing The False Virtue Of Fact-Check Journalism

Hot on the tail of Fake News, we now have fiat news, which is nothing to do with an Italian car maker whose name is an acronym for Fix It Again Tony. This new type of unrelibable news is news which broadly cheapens the credibility of media by presenting opinion as fact. It debases information in the same way that a capricious tyranT might debase a currency in order to enrich his family and cronies. It tells you how to think. There is a certain type of fiat news, however, which is more pernicious, than the stuff which is simply made up or is such an outrageous distortion of a true story that it should be denounced where it rears its head. It seeks, like all fake news, to present misleading information, offer opinions as documented fact and manipulate public opinion. This type of news also elects itself as arbiter of what should and should not be believed, regardless of the veracity of the story, it claims responsibility for determining the accuracy of the statements made and events reported by others. A valuable public service you may think. But in the hands of people whose only goal is to advance one political agenda and discredit another, who wish to tell us what to think and how to think about a topic and not just inform us of the facts, and when it is widely known to be dedicated to advancing a political agenda, it can only debase confidence in information and news than any other kind of media activity. Thus we urge you to take anything you read under the banner of fact check journalism Sure, there are examples of Fact Check Journalism doing good. And then there’s the NPR Fact Check of the 2019 State of the Union Address. Put aside your liking for or dislike of President Trump Ignore whether you agreed or disagreed with the sentiments expressed. Read it and ask yourself: Is this really a fact check? Or is the writer trying to shape readers opinions of the speech by presenting his or her opinions as a fact check? As it happens, I think you’ll find that there are actual fact checks in the article, mostly in the well-researched responses to the immigration and border wall questions, other responses to foreign policy and national security questions, and in many of Jim Zarroli’s checks on economic statements. But with those exceptions, NPR’s Fact Check is an analysis, commentary and opinion piece. There’s nothing wrong with that on its own. That’s an important role of the press. But publishing a piece like this as a ‘fact check’ is not just fiat news. It is fraud, a fraud of the kind that will kill confidence in the media stone dead unless others of influence recognize it and disavow it. Here are a few examples: Source: NPR This ‘Fact Check’ is of a kind you might call the Benchmark Switch. It isn’t a fact check so much of a statement against reality, but against what the author believes should have been said. The intention of this kind of fact check is to establish common knowledge about what is conventional and acceptable, to frame your interpretation of the remainder of the speech. We are to begin by understanding that the speaker being evaluated is beginning his speech well outside the norm. Definitional, textbook fiat news. The fact that the three previous Presidents did something Trump chose not to is irrelevant, there is no law and no ethical requirement to congratulate his opponents. His choice may or may not have been simply bad manners. That is a matter of opinion. Source: NPR This ‘Fact Check’ has a bogof (buy one ger one free,) – Anecdotal Rebuttals and Emotionally Curated language. The author has elected to fact check an expressed desire. Although it is difficult to know in any absolute way if someone really wants to ‘binds wounds of division’, it is reasonable enough to assess whether their actions line up with that expressed desire. Yet the author simply lists a couple of examples and plays to the crowd with a ‘reading lines from a teleprompter’ bit. This isn’t fact-checking. This is an opinion the author wished to express, and found a ‘fact check’ to use as scaffolding for that opinion. Source: NPR This starts with a fact check, but then transitions into Necessary Context, the selective provision of additional facts to tell you the context in which the original fact should be interpreted. The author doesn’t trust us to know whether in our own opinion the economy has been doing well. We need to be informed of his authoritative opinion about whether it has been influenced by certain policies, and he also wants you to know that he and ‘forecasters’ (a.k.a 'sources') believe that it won’t be sustained, which is a fact check on…oh, nothing really. We just thought you should know, because reasons. Source: NPR This one starts out looking like a fact check, but ends up offering the reader a lovely combination of Benchmark Switching and Necessary Context. The author wishes the speaker had compared unemployment levels between two demographics, and fact checks against what she wishes had been said. She then wants to make sure that you know how to think about this data in context of the president’s achievements, even though no such claim about responsibility had been made. By no stretch of the imagination can any of this be called fact checking. It is opinion making, and it is typical of the university brainwashed millennials who populate the media these days. They spent thireen years being indoctrinated in school and maybe another four or five inhigher educations and during that process have been stripped of the ability to think for themselves. Worse, they have been told "You are so much better than those uneducated oiks out there, it is your job to lead them in the paths of righteousness. And the pathetic specimens really believe they are smarter than the average guy because they spent more time in education? In his novel "Dodger," Terry PratcheTT describes the eponymous character thus: Some people spend years in school being educated, Dodger had spent years in the streets learning stuff. There's a big difference. Or as Frank Zappa put it: "If you want to get laid, go to college. If you want an education go to the library. Or as Brian, in Monty Python's Life Of Brian tells the multitude: "Don't let anyone tell you what to think, think it through for yourselves. RELATED POSTS:

Google Paid More In EU Fines Than Taxes Last Year; Whines About New Privacy Laws

One of today's more amusing news items revealed Google paid more in European fines than in taxes on their corporate profits, according to the firm's fourth-quarter earnings report.

Holding company Alphabet of which Google is a subsidiary, reported Q4 revenues for the search engine operator of 39.28 billion, up 22%, while revenues for the year were up 23% to $136.8 billion. Taxes in Q4 were $4.2 billion.

A record €4.3 billion ($5 billion) fine imposed by the European Union competition commisioner on the tech giant for allegedly anti-competitive practices related to Google's Android operating system, took their total fines from various malpractice cases for the year higher than the income taxes of $4.2 billion paid, according to Computing magazine

The company also separated out "European Commission fines" in its consolidated statements of income in the company's accounts which suggests it feels the fines for breaking EU fair trade law are unjust. These increased from $2.7bn in 2017 to $5.1bn in 2018, with a further €50m already set to be added to the bill for its first quarter and 2019 accounts, due to a penalty imposed by the French data protection authority CNIL.

That compares to a provision for income taxes of just $4.2 billion for 2018, or 12 per cent of its pre-tax income.Computing Net income in 2018 rose by 143% from $12.67 billion to $30.74 billion thanks to the US Tax Act of 2017, which depressed net income that year, which had "resulted in additional tax expense of $9.9 billion in the fourth quarter of 2017, primarily due to the one-time transition tax on accumulated foreign subsidiary earnings and deferred tax effects," according to the earnings release.

From Google's actions it is clear Alphabet continues to behave as if it is above the law and we can only hope President Trump manages to realise his campaign promise to break up monopolisitic internet giants like Google, Facebook and Amazon the actions of which have wreaked far more harm on society than any benefit they claim to have delivered..

'Special place in hell' for Brexiteers, says Donald Tusk


Can I give you a BJ asks Varadkar and Tusk looks happy at the offer. Picture: www.dw.com

Though he is despised in his own country for the way he sold out to the EU, former Polish leader Donald Tusk, now EU Council President, released an astounding attack on Theresa May as she toured Northern Ireland. His comments were condemned by the unionist DUP party, which wants to dump the only thing the EU and UK agree on.

Euronazi collaborator Tusk held nothing back on Wednesday when commenting on Brexit. Tusk tweeted: "I've been wondering what that special place in hell looks like, for those who promoted #Brexit, without even a sketch of a plan how to carry it out safely."

The president's tweet was immediately criticized by Brexit supporters, such as Nigel Farage, who called Tusk and his colleagues "arrogant bullies," without addressing the criticism that Brexit campaigners put forward as an option without a concrete plan to implement it.

British Prime Minister Theresa May took a slightly more subdued, but no less critical tack, saying "it's a question for Donald Tusk as to whether he considers the use of that kind of language helpful."

Tusk is one of the leading Europhiles and since he was booted out of office in Poland has become a prominent voice in the integrationist movement, pushing for all EU member states to surrender their sovereignty to Brussels and become a single federal superstate called Greater Germany. Thos brave Poles who gave their lives resisting the Nazis tirn in their graves every time the collaborating shit speaks.

Tusk's idiotic bluster came when he spoke alongside Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar in Brussels, where the two claimed that the EU's top concern is to avoid a hard Irish border after Brexit, considering the decades of violence and bloodshed that was only resolved by the 1998 Good Friday agreement. In fact, as the woofter Varadker has averred once during a rare few moments when he did not have another EU leader's cock in his mouth, the top concern for him and his EU allies has been to try and reunify Ireland by stealth.

"The top priority for us, remains the issue of the border on the island of Ireland, and the guarantee to maintain the peace process in accordance with the Good Friday Agreement. There is no room for speculation here. The EU itself is first and foremost a peace project. We will not gamble with peace; or put a sell-by date on reconciliation," Tusk said in a statement. And of course as far as the IRA are concerned there will only be permanent peace when Ireland is reunited. The twenty years since the Good Friday Agreement have just been a suspension of hostilities.

The UK has also maintained that avoiding a hard border in Ireland is a major priority, lending popularity to the now-ubiquitous term "backstop," to describe a measure put in place to protect the status quo in Ireland even if no deal is reached between British parliament and the EU.

US Democrats Supernut Formulates "Green New Deal" To Fix Climate And "Repair Historic Oppression"

Newly sworn in Democratic Party Congresswoman for New York, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, appahe calrently suffering delusions of grandeur after only two weeks in the job, is proposing a legislative package which she calls a "national, social, industrial and economic mobilization at a scale not seen since World War II," according to a letter the sent to colleagues.

The specifics of the plan, dubbed the "Green New Deal," will be released next week - however Ocasio-Cortez lays out several goals in the letter, including reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions "through a fair and just transition for all communities and workers," while creating millions of "good, high-wage jobs," according to Bloomberg. The plan also aims to ensure prosperity and security while investing in US infrastructure and industry.

The "Green New Deal" will also fight racism apparently. Climate change and racism? Who is she going to appoint as VP, David feckin' Blaine.

READ ALL >>> Zero Hedge

It is just empty words of course, this hippy - dippy, cultural Marxist, virtue signalling tartlette is saying nothing new, in fact what she is saying tells us she does not have a single original thought in her ethnically diverse little head. Miss Ocasio-Cortez simply is exposing her delusional belief that heaven can be recreated here on earth with enough government intervention in everything. It is an idea that has been tried many times over the past 100 years, and failed, creating a wave of humanitarian crises, every time. To think it might world this time simply because it is dressed up in green propaganda is either insane or stupid but probably a little of both.

Atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) is good; it is plant food. Most of it comes from natural cycles, and before the industrial age it was headed to dangerously low levels in the atmosphere(240 parts per million - at 200 ppm everything dies,). Without sufficient levels of atmospheric CO2 plants die, and then so would all animals who depend on them as food. And then the animals that depend on animals that depend on plants for food, for food. It was perhaps fortunate that mankind figured out how to liberate large amounts of CO2 that was stored in the ground as coal, oil and natural gas. On the other hand nature has a wonderful way of balancing things and maybe, just maybe the system would have thrown itself into reverse with CO2 levels rising to several thousand parts per million as they have in the past according to paleo - ecoologists, (ironically CO2 sometimes reached those dizzy levels during past ice ages although in other prolonged periods of intense cold it fell, which ought to suggest even to the thikest scientists that CO2 levels have little effect on mean temeratures.

As far as CO2 in the atmosphere being the driver of temperature goes, the actual science (as opposed to the computer modelling,) shows that it has a negligible effect at best. The primary greenhouse gas, water vapour moderates any CO2 effect by raining out, so that the overall greenhouse effect is stable; this is the saturation effect which limits the amount of greenhouse gas the atmosphere can hold. Furthermore, the ice core data shows that CO2 is the effect and temperature is the cause when it comes to the relationship between atmospheric CO"2 and temperature. What drives the ice ages with intervening inter-glacial warming periods (like today's warming) are the Milankovitch cycles related to changes in the eccentricity of the earths orbit, changes in its axial tilt, and the precessional cycle. Shorter term variations in temperature are related to a multitude of cycles in solar activity.

Just like socialism/communism, global warming is a government run plunder and control scam, which means this political bimbo is doubly self identifying as a scam artist. I wouldn't want her managing my company's finances, and certainly wouldn't recommend American voters to support any party that takes her ideas seriously. Far too many nations in the developed world have incompetents holding high office simply because of their ability to recite bullshit that appeals to university brainwashed millennials the. Alexandria's highest economic attainment in life before being elected was employment as a bartender (which as relavent experience of suitability for high office is somewhat better than Barack Obama's ice cream slinger, community organiser and, allegedly, professional cocksucker.

One must suppose however, those Bambi eyes and beestung lips play well to members of the great unwashed with poor intellectual skills.

Yellow Vests Latest – Week 12

Wounded Yellow Vests Denounce Police Brutality in Latest Anti-Macron Protests

France’s yellow vest protesters were back on the streets Saturday to keep up the pressure on French President Emmanuel Macron’s government and to decry the number of people being injured by police during anti-government demonstrations.

Multiple protests were taking place in Paris and other cities to denounce Macron’s economic policies, which they view as favouring the rich, for the 12th straight weekend of demonstrations.

In Paris, scuffles broke out between some protesters and police around the Republic plaza, northeast of the city centre, where hundreds of demonstrators headed on Saturday afternoon. Police appeared to be trying to disperse the crowd.

Thousands of demonstrators in the French capital paid tribute to the yellow vests injured during clashes with police, an effort to unify growing divisions in the grassroots movement.

Several competing groups of yellow vests said they are getting ready to present candidates for the European Parliament election in May, while other figures insist the movement must remain non-political.

The government says around 2,000 people have been injured in protests since the movement began Nov. 17, including at least four serious eye injuries. Separately, 10 people have died in traffic accidents related to yellow vest actions.

Jerome Rodrigues, a prominent member of the movement who suffered an eye injury last week, was widely applauded by the crowd.

Yellow Vests in Germany: Hundreds Protest New EU Regulations

Frankfurt am Main (AFP) – Hundreds of people demonstrated Saturday in Stuttgart, the bastion of Germany’s car industry, against a recent driving ban on older diesels, wearing yellow vests to match protesters in France whose movement began as a reaction to proposed fuel hikes.

Since January 1, only diesel vehicles meeting the Euro 5 emissions standard are allowed into Stuttgart, home of Mercedes-Benz maker Daimler, Volkswagen subsidiary Porsche and the world’s biggest car parts supplier Bosch.

The demonstrators held banners saying “Pro-diesel” and “Diesel drivers mobilise” as they gathered outside a car emissions centre.

“What’s happening to people is unjust,” joint organiser Vasilos Topalis told AFP.

“Tens of thousands of people are affected and can’t afford to buy a new car” following the court-ordered ban, he added.

Environmental organisations last year took to the courts to push through similar driving bans in many German cities where emissions exceed European Union limits.

Judges ordered Berlin, Mainz, Hamburg and Bonn to limit some diesels’ access, while parts of a motorway near Essen will be closed to the cars.

Latests EU Attack On Italy's Salvini Shows The Elite Are Scared

A court in Sicily has allowed proceedings against Italian Eurosceptic Interior Minister, leader of The League and all-around pain-in-the-arse for The Davos Crowd, Matteo Salvini. In what must be one of the most ludicrous EU efforts to silence nationalist leaders ahead of elections to the European Parliament in May this year, judges ruled Salvini should stand trial for the Brussels sponsored charge of kidnapping migrants held on boats operated by pro = globalisation NGOs off Italy’s shores.

“I confess,” Salvini told followers in a Facebook video, “there is no need for a trial. It’s true, I did it and I’d do it again.I risk 3 to 15 years in prison for blocking illegal landings in Italy. I have no words to defend against the charge,” wrote Salvini, the leader of the ultra-nationalist Lega (League) party, which now governs Italy in coalition with the more left leaning but equyally anti-establishment Five Star Movement (M5S).

If this latest move to silence opponents wasn’t so stupid it would be comical. But it has happened and is an attack on Salvini and democracy. As Dr. Steve Turley explains in the video below one of the goals of this attack is to drive a wedge between Five Star Movement (M5S) and its coalition partner, The League.

According to independent legal opinion in Italy this looks as if it will go nowhere as M5S leader Luigi DI Maio supported Salvini. But, the real issue isn’t the coalition government. If somehow Di Maio can’t ride herd over his faction with the Italian parliament and they vote to allow this trial to go forward then M5S will continue sinking into obscurity and The League’s rising poll numbers will accelerate.

As Turley points out it is not in M5S’s best interest to betray its partner at this point. They enjoy parliamentary representation well above their current polling.

So, they would jeopardize everything they’ve worked to shape Italian domestic policy.

But that’s not the real issue, which is the case is an attempt by the EU and The Davos Crowd to prevent the integration of the Euroskeptic movement around Europe, of which Salvini has become the de facto leader now that Nigel Farage will leave the European Parliament after Brexit, and head off its challenge the current status quo in the European Parliament.

Salvini called for a “League of Leagues” after his meeting with Hungary’s Viktor Orban. He will succeed. This embarrassingly inept atempt to stop that happening can only help him succeed. This is the guy who successfully rebranded the secessionist Northern League into the MIGA party – Make Italy Great Again.

He and Five Star Movement leader Luigi Di Maio waded through the Italian Swamp to form a government experts said couldn’t work. Thanks to Salvini’s strategic genius Italian politics will never be the same again. His League now polls around 30%, which bodes well for it in next year’s European Parliamentary Elections. Because now his sights are MEGA – Make Europe Great Again.

In fact, this frivolous lawsuit is prima facia evidence that the EU oligarchs in Brussels are officially scared of what’s coming in May’s European Parliamentary elections. If Salvini wasn’t a threat they wouldn’t be going after him this way.

The Finns fight back – after multiple cases of child rape Soldiers of Odin patrol the streets of Oulu

Egbert Nobakon, 30 January

Soldiers of Odin on patrol to stop immigrant rapists
After multiple cases of rape and assault by immigrant men, Soldiers Of Odin viligantes patrol the streets of Oulu, Finland (Picture: voiceofeurope.com/ )

In the face of government failure to respond to citizens concerns about the rising number of rapes and sexual assaults on Finnish children by immigrant men, a vigilante group Soldiers of Odin has started patrolling streets the streets and public places in Oulu, the most northerly city in the world outside Russia, in response to multiple cases of rape and sexual assault committed against Finnish children by immigrant men (it's not politically correct to mention the ethnic and religious background of these criminals of course.)

The group regularly patrols streets, parks, squares and shopping centres in the city, as all have been identified as places where unaccompanied children, accustomed to the peaceful atmosphere created by civilised Finns, are likely to gather. The immigrants, from cultures so backward and lawless it is not regarded wrong to rape an unaccompanied child or woman, are looking for victims to satisfy theor sexual fantasies, and lack of consent is not an issue for them.

The Soldiers of Odin initiative comes shortly after senior police officers warned the population against taking the law into their own hands, Ã…lands Nyheter reports. And as usual politicians have defended the softly - softly approach taken by police as being "in the interests of community relations."

Soldiers of Odin (SOO) is an anti-immigrant group founded in Kemi, Finland, in October 2015. It is not political and has no offocial links to the True Finns nationalist political party. The group was established as a response to a huge increase in the number of migrants arriving due to the Open Broders immigration policy imposed by the European Union on member states. Named after Odin, the father god and protector of the people in Norse mythology. As usual left wing groups, as always besotted with the idea of dark skinned men raping and assaulting European women and children, have tried to label the group as far right and neo - Nazi and left dominated mainstream media have been quick to join in spreading that lie.

The Finnish National Police Commissioner, Seppo Kolehmainen, caused confusion when he initially welcomed the establishment of street patrols.

In response, the Europhile and globalist Minister of the Interior, Petteri Orpo, said, “In Finland it is officials who oversee and take care of order in society. It is a simple matter and we will stick to it”. One kind of hopes the next woman to be raped by an immigrant is someone near and dear to the snivelling piece of sewer slime Orpo. Then he could explain to the victim why they should feel gratitude to their assailant.

We learn that in addition to Finland, affiliates of the group have a presence in Sweden, Norway, Germany, Britain, Belgium, Estonia, Canada, Australia, and the United States. SOO has denied all claims of being a racist or neo-Nazi group in interviews and on their public Facebook page. The left can walow in their usual, hypocritical self righteousness, but as they have been screaming fot fifty years that rapists should be killed, until someone can explain why it is OK for a darkl skinned foreigner to rape European women and children, or alternative the authoritites act against these paskudniaks, the spread of vigilanteism is inevitable.

French Identitarian Activists Arrested Following ‘Defend Europe’ Mission

Génération Identitaire message for illegal immigrants
Generation Identitaire message for illegal immigrants trying to cross from Italy to France in the Alps.

When members of the French hipster-right anti-mass migration Génération Identitaire movement took part in a demonstration for French identity and culture late last year, (the so called “Defend Europe” mission along the French-Italian border) they thought they were exercising their right to peaceful protest. So it was a surprise when several were arrested this week.

The activists arrested Tuesday morning in Lyon included the group’s spokesman Romain Espino. Prosecutors later said their arrests were in connection with the Defend Europe mission last year in the Col de l’Echelle area, according to a report in L’Express..

Génération Identitaire activist Anaïs Lignier was among those arrested even though she is eight months pregnant. In a press statement from the group she announced: “This morning, along with two other Génération Identitaire members, I was placed in police custody on the order of the Gap prosecutor, for the absurd motive of ‘interference in public service,'” Ms Lignier said.

“In particular, we built a symbolic border at the Col de l’Echelle and flew over the area with helicopters. In fact, Emmanuel Macron’s government never forgave us for humiliating him on the 21st of April, when we forced him to send police and gendarmerie reinforcements to secure the Franco-Italian border,” she added.

Lignier also attacked the French authorities for waiting so long to act against the protestors, who never made a secret of who they were, saying, “the justice system, at the behest of the authorities in Paris, tries to take us down by all means, including the most fanciful on the legal level. The fact that I already have a family responsibility and that I am 8 months pregnant did not prevent the prosecutor’s office from putting me in custody.”

The activist also claimed that police were less interested in the Defend Europe mission and more curious about the group’s inner workings as well as connections to political parties and others. That sounds as if the idiot Macron is looking for excuses to ban Marine Le Pen's Rassemblement national ahead of elections to the European Parliament. If he's stupid enough to do that, and his track record suggests he is, there will be civil war.

The action against Génération Identitaire was clearly taken a political basis. Lignier said group members exercised their right to silence and added that the group would not be intimidated and would contunue to defent Franch culture and nationhood in spite of the arrests. “We will always remain at the forefront of the defence of our people and our civilisation,” she said.

Our corresepondent in the area, (the edior's daughter,) recalls the incident hardly caused a ripple in the french mainstream media pool at the time. Since then of course, due to the continuing Yellow Vests protests, the Macron regime has taken a much more authoritarian line against protestors and shown it is prepared to trample civil rights in order to silence criticism of its failed policies.

Week 11 Of Yellow Vests unrest keeps pressure on Macron

by Arthur Foxake

picture Yellow vests - chalk on concrete by French street artist Pascal Boyart

France’s yellow vest protesters hit the streets again last weekend, we're a bit behind this week so excuse the lateness of this report please. Our editor was abroad covering the World Economic Forum in davos Sweitzerland (actually he and his wife are visiting their daughter in the French Alps, but it's only a couple of hours drive away.) It's reported that numbers were up again, not only in Paris but also in many procincial centres where protests took place. This keeps pressure on President Emmanuel Macron, who can only rant about internal divisions in the movement as if they are an organised political force rather than a spontaneous expression of disillusionment with the establishment by random groups of citizens.

Multiple protests took place on Saturday around Paris and other cities, the 11th straight weekend of action prompted by Macron policies seen as favoring the rich. Also Macron's recent treaty with The European Union's other leading globalist, which moves towards politically integrating France and Germany has angered many citizens to whom the thought of becoming even more entangles with the Germans is anathema.

Globalisation has ensured the rich get richer, mostly by outsourcing labour to Asia, and again by driving down wages by importing cheap Labour. The result has been the gap between rich and poor in the West has increased. And up till now working class voters have been bough off with generous state benefits and have continued to vote for establishment parties. However the end result of these policies which increase taxation of the lower groups in society while driving down earnings, and the debts incurred by bloated and inefficient state sector organisations has meant those benefits are now having to be cut.

A leader of the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vest) movement has called for an “uprising” at next Saturday’s protest, following the severe injury of one of its major figures over the weekend.

The protest last weekend, dubbed “Act XI,” saw 69,000 participants across France, with 4,000 in the capital of Paris. One of the major incidents involved prominent figure Jerome Rodrigues who was shot at by riot police with “flashball” rounds which resulted in the activist being seriously injured, facing the prospect of losing one of his eyes, Le Figaro reports.

Davos Doomsday Despair

UN chief says ‘we are losing the race’ on climate change

davos climate change fears
World Economic Forum delegates at Davos, Switzerland sweltered in tropical temperatures as they discussed the urgent need to deal with climate chhance (Picture: www.sott.net )

Speaking at the World Economic Forum last week, UN chief Antonio Guterres issued the somewhat hysterical warning that the world is “losing the race” on climate change as he demanded that governments make bolder commitments beyond the Paris accord.

“Climate change is the defining issue of our time”, he told an audience drawn from the global elite at the annual WEF jolly for the super rich in Davos, Switzerland which anyone can attend if they can afford $60,000 for a basic ticket plus accomodation and plenty of other extras.

“It is absolutely central to reverse this trend. We need political will and we need governments who understand that this is the most important priority of our times,” he stressed. The Paris climate accord has been shaken by the withdrawal of the United States under President Donald Trump, and by threats to do the same by Brazil’s new leader Jair Bolsonaro. The UN secretary-general said the commitments made in Paris were already “not enough”.

“If what we agreed in Paris would be materialized, the temperature would rise more than 3.0 degrees (Celsius)”, he said on a Facebook Live broadcast from Davos. In fact even climate alarmists cited a one and a half degree increase at the time of the Paris climate summit two years ago. The recent resurgence of alarmism, which is based on output from computer models alone, (real world data shows the world is not warming,) is an inept political response to the upsurge in nationalism and pushback against globalist policies.

Another climate change advocate, former US Secretary of State, sidekick of the cocksucker-in-chief Barack Obama and current World No.1 Scooby Doo villain lookalike John Kerry, who signed the Paris accord for the United States in 2016, agrees with him. Kerry, however, believes doomsday will come even sooner. “We’re heading towards 4.0 degrees Centigrade increase in this century, and the passive indifference that most countries are accepting is basically a mutual suicide pact”, he stated.

The fact that overpopulation is a far bigger threat to our environment than the essential plant food and life supporting trace atmospheric gas carbon dioxide was not discussed.

But if you follow the money, as this news blog has always said, sooner or later it leads to the truth. And as ever the notion of levying a punitive carbon tax was high on the agenda. This elitist scheme to allow corporate business, financial institutions and the super - rich to steal money from the poor and average income masses is what has always been behind the climate change (the humanitarian disaster formerly known as global warning,) bogeyman scam.

“A carbon tax offers the most cost-effective lever to reduce carbon emissions at the scale and speed that is necessary”, signatories to the initiative said in a statement recently. OK, but they should also mention it hits the porest hardest.


Writing in that repository of all left wing and globalist idiocies The Guardian, writer Amelia Hill makes the nonsensical assertion UK cannot simply trade on WTO terms after no-deal Brexit, offering only the opinions of left wing and globalist 'experts' in support of her case. Here's a sample:

The UK will be unable to have frictionless, tariff-free trade under World Trade Organization rules for up to seven years in the event of a no-deal Brexit, according to two leading European Union law specialists.

The ensuing chaos could double food prices and plunge Britain into a recession that could last up to 30 years, claim the lawyers who acted for Gina Miller in the historic case that forced the government to seek parliament’s approval to leave the EU. Anneli Howard, a specialist in EU and competition law at Monckton Chambers and a member of the bar’s Brexit working group, believes this isn’t true, hill claims.

“No deal means leaving with nothing, Sir Ivan Rogers former UK Premanent Representative to the the European Institute said in a lecture that the anticipated recession will be worse than the 1930s, let alone 2008. It is impossible to say how long it would go on for. Some economists say 10 years, others say the effects could be felt for 20 or even 30 years: even ardent Brexiteers agree it could be decades.”

Nobody involved with The Daily Stirrer has seen or heard any Brexiteers hysterical predictions of a thirty years recession, but Remainers are not known for their honesty or level headedness. However Hill was not done with the anti - Brexit hyperbole.

The government cannot simply cut and paste the 120,000 EU statutes into UK law and then make changes to them gradually, she said. “The UK will need to set up new enforcement bodies and transfer new powers to regulators to create our own domestic regimes,” she said.

She's talking through her posterior orifice again. Those laws are alread in British law and can be undone gradually. That has already been clarified by constitutional lawyers.

Effects Felt for 30 Years

Hill made five references to Anneli Howard, whose CV describes her as a leading junior lawyer in telecommunications law, in the article but the alleged expert's professional status as a junior lawyer hardly qualifies her opinion as authoritative.

Hill's moans about a 1930s recession and claims even ardent Brexiters agree it could be decades, in the same paragraph. Again she does not name these Brexiteers.

In an linked-to article by The Guardian, titled: Two, 50 or 100 years: when do leavers think Brexit will pay off? writer Emine Saner very misleading.

This is what Jacob Rees-Mogg, the Brexiteer alluded to actually said: “We won’t know the full economic consequences for a very long time.” That is quite accurate. Benefits accrue every year.

Former Brexit Secretart David Davis said "There is no reason why many of these cannot be achieved within two years.”

Hill managed to take an already purposely-overhyped headline title and turn it into a complete fabricated lie, fake news that links recessions to a 30-year wait for the full benefits to be known.

After 16 paragraphs of total scaremongering and attempted scattering of Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt, Hill mentions the counter-claims.

Economists for Free Trade, a group with links to Jacob Rees-Mogg and David Davis, claims there is “nothing to fear” from leaving the EU without reaching an agreement.

David Collins, a professor of international economic law at City University of London, said: “The UK can trade quite easily on an uncertified schedule.”

However, Collins conceded that an uncertified schedule “might be an indication of that complaining member’s intention to initiate a dispute against the member,” and that “the WTO dispute settlement process can take several years to resolve”.

Thus two correctly cited experts say no problem. Two law experts, not economic experts makes the opposing claim.

Collins, an international economics professor, is certainly correct, but notice the slant of the article and the title.

30-Year Recession

The idea of a 30-year recession wins first prize for the most stupid statement ever about Brexit, and that is saying quite a lot.

Hill deserves an award herself (for bad journalism of fake news maybe,) for producing an absurd article full of politically biased nonsense, without even properly referencing who one her alleged "experts" is.

The Guardian frequently presents fake news articles with left-wing progressive and anti - Brexit slants. Hill and Saner provide today's examples.

As for that predicted 30-year recession:

Short-term, the EU will get hit much harder than the UK. Germany will get hit the hardest. At that point the EU, if it survives, will be ready for serious trade agreement negotiations with the UK.

Friendly fraud: Facebook Encouraged Kids To Spend Fortunes On Online Games

Facebook has been bombarded with complaints from parents that children were spending large sums of money, without being aware they were using real money, while playing games like Angry Birds and Ninja Saga on Facebook, internal emails show. Unfortunately the emailslso show that face with yet another highly damaging scandal, the response of Facebook's management was completely inappropriate. For years, the company claimed it was trying to tackle the problem of kids unwittingly spending their parents' money playing games that employed 'in-app billing' on Facebook, newly unsealed court documents say. As long ago as 2012, an Arizona woman sued the tech giant on finding her 12-year-old son had racked up around $1,000 in credit card charges by playing Ninja Saga. She claimed that neither she nor the boy knew that they were spending money on the game. After initially denying any responsibility, the social media giant eventually settled the case with the family. This was only one of many such incidents. The leaked internal emails describe how another family requested a refund after a 15-year-old ran up more than $6,500 in charges while playing an online game. The total chargeback rates for games on Facebook went as high as nine percent – well beyond what is considered a 'red flag' by the Federal Trade Commission. Game developers were also concerned. Rovio, the creator of the massively popular Angry Birds, queried Facebook about refund rates of "5-10 percent" for money spent on the game, which seemed "quite high." After analyzing the situation, Facebook concluded that over 90 percent of refund claims for Angry Birds were involved cases of a minor using their parents' or grandparents' account. Internal probes revealed that in many cases the children who ran up the bills had no idea they were paying real money, and their parents did not realize that their credit card was tied to Facebook. "This only exacerbates the problem since it doesn't necessarily look like 'real' money to a minor," an employee wrote, according to the internal emails. The above illustrates one of the big problems created by our being pushed to switch so much of our personal and business activity to internet based technologies. Few people using online applications understand enough about what the software applications they use are doing or are capable of doing. Instances of children blowing money on games without parental permission has become known as "friendly fraud" or "FF" in Facebook's internal Orwellian newspeak. The emails reveal that Facebook's efforts to fix the problem were given a lower priority than "maximizing revenue." "The difficulty with friendly fraud is that we do not have a clear way to identify it at a purchase level because it looks like a good transaction," an Facebook staffer wrote, adding that building "risk models" to reduce such cases "would most likely block good TPV [total purchase value]." The use of such technocratic language coupled with the fact that in another exchange a Facebook employee referred to a user seeking a refund as a "whale" (casino slang for a high-wager gambler) led to accusations by Facebook watchers that the tech giant was happy to turn turn a blind eye to the problem or even encourag minors to squander vast sums of money online, and its response to the problem was more a public relations exercise than a serious effort to deal with the problem. In a statement provided to the Center for Investigative Reporting, which reviewed its emails this week, Facebook noted that it regularly reviews and revises the terms and practices with connection to refund requests. "Facebook works with parents and experts to offer tools for families navigating Facebook and the web," the company stated, adding that it would provide "dedicated resources" to deal with chargebacks originating from purchases made by minors. This latest controversy adds to a number of scandals that have hit Facebook in recent years. The company has previously been involved in a highly damaging data-mining scandal and made matters worse by being caught still using the same practices having been ordered by courts to cease and desist. It has also been accused of not doing enough to combat the activity of false accounts and disinformation online (which Facebook denies). And most recently it has been found to have exaggerated numbers of active users and monthly traffic figures, which would fraudulently increase its advertising sales.

might persuade MPs in her divided Conservative Party, as well as the 10 members from the Democratic Unionist Party, the Northern Ireland party that props up her government, have been demanding do for months.

According to a report in the Telegraph, the DUP is preparing to back an amendment tabled by Graham Brady, the leader of the Tory backbenchers, that will call for the removal of the Irish Backstop, to be replaced by an unspecified "alternative arrangement". Though the EU27 has insisted that the negotiations over the Brexit deal are finished, and that it wouldn't be willing to make any more alterations to the deal, there have been signs that leaders of the EU27, under pressure from businesses in Europe that fear a no deal Brexit would harm them as much as the UK, might reluctantly reopen negotiations in a bid to avert a "no deal" Brexit scenario, which economists believe would be a disaster both for the UK and the Continent.

This blog has always believed a no deal Brexit and trading with the bloc under WTO rules is nothing to worry about, and as economists have a track record of being wrong more than 99% of the time, the fact that they strongly oppose no deal adds strength to our argument.

Brady's amendment is broader than another amendment tabled by Tory MP Andrew Murrison, which calls for adding an expiration date of Dec. 21, 2021 to the backstop. And while May has continued to publicly oppose throwing out the backstop, the fact remains that it has been clear for months now that any deal with the backstop attached has a snowball's chance in hell of survival.

Because of this, May is reportedly quietly hoping that, if she can get the DUP on board, along with some 80% of Tories who it's believed would support a deal without the backstop, it would give her enough juice to convince the EU27 that it would be worth renegotiating the deal. But no matter what is accepted in Westminster, the EU must also be persuaded to accept it and that is as likely as a three legged horse winning The Prix De L'Arc De Triomph. But before the deal goes back to the EU there are still obstacles.

from The Daily Telegraph (link above):
DUP sources confirmed that the Brady amendment would be essential to passing the Brexit deal.
A DUP source said Sir Graham’s amendment represented the best way forward and that it would send the issue back to Brussels with a clear demand for change.
"Certainly the Graham Brady amendment looks promising for us," the source said.
The DUP believes the EU is beginning to accept changes will have to be made to the backstop for Mrs May’s deal to be agreed by MPs.
Sir Graham told The Telegraph the backstop “can't get through the House of Commons - and that leads to alternative arrangements” as he said he hoped his amendment would secure Government support.
"It seems to me the only agreed exit from the EU that can command a majority is the Withdrawal Agreement without a backstop," he said.

Renewed hope for May's deal has driven the British pound higher on currency markets, at close of business on Friday it stood at €1.15 and close to $1.30 after it's strongest weekly performance for a year. The ever - reliable (not!) online news site BuzzFeed reported that May's Chief Whip Julian Smith has been drumming up support for the amendment by hinting that the government would push for a reopening of the agreement.

The EU27 however, does not like the idea of reopening negotiations or adding time limits to the backstop (as Michel Barnier again made clear earlier this week). And France's cheese-eating-surrender-monkey-in-chief, Emmanuel Macron has previously stated his position that the backstop must be indefinite and can only be removed by the Irish government in Dublin (which would only be given if the reunification of Ireland is agreed,) So it looks as if soft Brexit supporters are pinning their hopes once again on the notion that an alliance between May, the DUP and the Remainers might finally. materialize - and that everything else (namely, the EU27) will just fall into place. If that happens I hear bookmakers are offering very good odds on The Loch Ness Monster being captured, aliens landing on The White House lawn, and Elvis appearing at the O2 Arena in 2020.

Mad Mac Macron attacks Brexit, Threatens Yellow Vests

Leave Vote Was ‘Manipulated’, Lunatic President Tells France

Macron's 'great debate' backfires as Yellow Versts week 11 protests bigger and angrier (Picture: Daily Express )

The UK’s Leave vote in the Brexit refererndum was caused by misplaced “anger” and foreign disinformation, a raving mad Emmanuel Macron told French television and radio audiences at an event organised as part of his "grande debate," on the public dissastisfaction with his government that has manifested itself in the Yellow Vest movement civil unrest. In a speech warning critics of his globalist, authoritarian regime in France to beware “people who manipulate you with miracle ideas”.

Hang on! Wasn't Mad Mac elected on the strenght of 'miralcle ideas' less than twoi years ago. A complete political novice with a track record of mediocrity in everything he had done, Macron was pushed to the fore as leader of a new party in French politics, after a stitch up by traditional conservative and socialist parties to stop the election of Marine Le Pen's Rassemblement National, the main Eurosceptic party.

Speaking at a Town Hall meeting near Lyon after weeks of increasingly violent protests, the French president told unhappy citizens to "be aware of people who sell you dreams, that tell you all your anger can be solved by a referendum", before dismissing Brexit as rubbish. Thus spake the man who promised he could solve all the problems of France and EU member states through a combination of higher taxes and more of the policies that had caused the problems.

“Take the British. They voted for Brexit,” Macron told the audience in Bourg-de-Peage of around 250 people, a number of whom were dressed in the yellow vests of the ‘gilet jaunes’ movement.

He said: “There were people [in Britain] who, in good faith, were sometimes as angry as you are, and they said that the source of all their ills was Europe. It’s rubbish!” he said, explaining that voters were swayed by Leave campaign buses emblazoned with messages “reading that you were going to save something like 36 billion pounds” if Britain were to leave the EU.

“There were entire buses going by saying you’re going to save – I can’t remember how much now – something like 36 billion pounds if you leave,” he said, in an attack on pro-independence campaigns, which he alleged also tricked the British into believing divorce from the EU that Brexit would “be done in a fortnight”.

“There were people who voted for Brexit, who did it in good faith, they were angry, and they thought their situation was impossible, because the system was unjust,” stated Macron, before claiming that UK citizens are now “starting to realise that all the figures they were given are entirely false, and what they were told could be done overnight in fact can’t be delivered.He said: “There were people [in Britain] who, in good faith, were sometimes as angry as you are, and they said that the source of all their ills was Europe.

“There were people who voted for Brexit, who did it in good faith, they were angry, and they thought their situation was impossible, because the system was unjust,” stated Macron, before claiming that UK citizens are now “starting to realise that all the figures they were given are entirely false, and what they were told could be done overnight in fact can’t be delivered.

“And in the end it’s going to cost them. In this context do you think that the referendum was a good thing?”

“No, because it didn’t allow for an informed, transparent and calm debate. It’s torn a society apart, and it’s left it open to disinformation coming from abroad, or terrible manipulation,” asserted the French premier.

Macron’s tirade against Brexit came in response to a question from the audience about the citizens’ initiative referendums (RIC), the Yellow Vests movement’s demand for the right to hold Swiss-style referendums on policy proposals which gather more than 700,000 signatures.

“Difficult decisions should never be made by referendum,” stated the president, asserting the general public are not the “best-informed” on such issues and that, “in recent referendums, foreign powers greatly manipulated the vote”.

“We’re all surrounded by fake news. And a lot of people are persuaded, in good faith, that what they’re being told is true, when in fact it’s totally false. Because they read it on the internet,” he told the town hall meeting.

So all anyone could have learned from that pile of bollocks is that Mad Mad is just as arrogant, deluded and out of touch with voters as before his disastrous presidency began. Fore more proof of this we only have to look at the latest plan cooked up by Mad Mac and the equally unhinged Hausfrau - Volksfuher Merkel to integrate Germany and France as a first step towards forcing the other 25 EU member states to surrender their national sovereignty and become provinces of a federal superstate dominated by Germany and France.

France & Germany: "We Are Committed To The Emergence Of A European Army"

As my UK blog reported last week French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have signed a new Franco-German collaboration treaty (the French are the world's greatest collaborators,) aimed at reinvigorating the European Union, which has been buffeted by the European debt crisis, mass migration and Brexit — as well as innumerable conflicting interests and priorities among its 28 member states.

France and Germany, the self-appointed guardians of European integration, have said that the new World Domination plan treaty is a response to the increasing support for nationalists and populists in EU member states such as Austria, Germany, Britain, France, Sweden, Italy, Spain, Hungary, Poland and other European countries who are resisting moves towards furthr political and cultural integration of member states, and even hoping to reverse progress towards European integration by reclaiming national sovereignty from the European Union and transferring those powers back to national capitals.

The continent wide rejection of EU authoritarianism now threatens to tear apart the European Union as Eurosceptic nationalists and Europhile globalists prepare to go head to head in elections for the European Parliament in late May 2019.

The "Aachen Treaty" [Traité d'Aix-la-Chapelle; Vertrag von Aachen], signed by Merkel and Macron on January 22 in the German city of Aachen, consists of 28 articles presented in seven chapters; both states commit to closer cooperation with the other in a series of policy areas. The first eight articles cover bilateral foreign and defense policy as well as the European Union, are the most ambitious and consequential items in the treaty:

Article 1: Both states to deepen their cooperation on European policy by "promoting an effective and strong common foreign and security policy and strengthening and deepening Economic and Monetary Union."

Article 2: Both states to "consult each other regularly at all levels before the major European deadlines, seeking to establish common positions and to agree coordinated speeches by their ministers. They will coordinate on the transposition of European law into their national law."

Article 3: Both states to "deepen their cooperation on foreign policy, defense, external and internal security and development while striving to strengthen Europe's autonomous capacity for action." The two states also pledge to "consult each other in order to define common positions on any important decision affecting their common interests and to act jointly in all cases where this is possible."

Article 4: Both states to "increasingly converge their objectives and policies on security and defense.... They lend themselves to mutual assistance by all means at their disposal, including armed forces, in case of armed aggression against their territories." They also "commit themselves to strengthening Europe's capacity for action and to jointly invest to fill its capacity gaps, thus strengthening the European Union and the North Atlantic Alliance." They "intend to promote the competitiveness and consolidation of the European defense industrial and technological base...they support the closest possible cooperation between their defense industries on the basis of mutual trust...both states will develop a common approach to arms exports with regard to joint projects. The two states will "establish the Franco-German Defense and Security Council as the political body to manage these reciprocal commitments. This Council will meet at the highest level at regular intervals."

Article 5: Both states to "extend cooperation between their foreign affairs ministries, including their diplomatic and consular missions" and coordinate action at the United Nations and NATO.

Article 6: Both states to "further strengthen their bilateral cooperation in the fight against terrorism and organized crime, as well as their cooperation in the judiciary and in intelligence and police matters."

Article 7: Both states to "establish an ever-closer partnership between Europe and Africa...with the aim of improving socio-economic prospects, sustainability, good governance and conflict prevention, crisis resolution, especially in the context of peacekeeping, and the management of post-conflict situations."

Article 8: Both states to "cooperate closely in all organs of the United Nations." They will "closely coordinate their positions, as part of a wider effort of consultation among the EU member states sitting on the UN Security Council and in accordance with the positions and interests of the European Union." They will "do their utmost to achieve a unified position of the European Union in the appropriate organs of the United Nations." The two states also "undertake to continue their efforts to reform the United Nations Security Council." The admission of Germany as a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council "is a priority of Franco-German diplomacy."

The remainder of the treaty pledges closer bilateral cooperation in the areas of artificial intelligence, climate change, cross-border issues, culture, economic affairs, education, energy, environment, health and sustainable development, among other issues.

When we look at it from the point of view of the weaker EU member states this is clearly a power grab by Germany (the master race?) and France (the collabourators,) aimed at gaining complete dominance of mainland Europe after Britain leaves. And that is why Britain has to leave and others will follow. It's nothing to do with Mad Mac's rabid imagingings about fake news and misinformation. Britain's leave voters knew precisely what we were voting for. Our vote repudiated the idea that our proud, ancient nation could only survive as part of a bloc dominated by sausage scoffers and cheese eating surrender monkeys.

Sweden Appoints Anti-Semitic Hippie Lunatic as Cultural Minister in New Government

Guest post by Peter Sweden

After months of negotiations, the Socialist Democrats have formed a coalition government together with the Green party. And the catastropic result of that for the people of Sweden is the appointment of this hairdressing disaster as Culture Secretary in the new coalition government.

Peter Sweden

The newly appointed Minister for Culture, Amanda Lind, has already proven to be controversial. Only hours after being appointed, she wrote on Instagram praising amongst others Mehmet Kaplan, calling him a “pioneer” and “hero”.

Mehmet Kaplan was formerly the Minister for Housing in Sweden, but was forced to resign after it was revealed he had connections to fascist and Islamist organisations. He has also compared Israel to the Nazis, something that Israel said was “nothing but anti-semitism”.

Unsurprisingly the new minister has already come out attacking right-wingers, saying that “nationalists and right-wing populists are a threat to free speech”

The new Minister for Culture has also been widely talked about on social media, with many pointing out her “hippie” style. Amanda Lind is a licensed psychologist and has studied herbal alternative medicine, acupuncture and Chinese medicine. She told Swedish website Yippie Härnösand that she is interested in roleplay and cartoons and that she looks at life in a “spiritual way”.

Hanif Bali, a popular politician from the centre-right Moderate party wrote on twitter after her appointment “I look forward to having a hippie as Minister for Culture…tons of weed at the department”

Amanda Lind’s husband has also been in the spotlight recently. Björn Ola Lind, a 55 year old artist has been a prominent face at alternative festivals in Sweden, and has produced films based on Sami mythology.

There are videos of him on YouTube campaigning for the Green party by dressing up in white face and playing the didgeridoo made out of moose bones. At one point in the video he is heard saying “the spirit of the moose manifests through our machines”.

In other YouTube videos he is seen playing the didgeridoo at the top of a mountain in Sweden together with a woman who appears to be performing butoh dance.

Other photos of him on social media shows him again in white face hovering in the air over a tree stump dressed with a turban on his head. He told Swedish newspaper Expressen that he is interested in the Australian Aborigines, and that he has been accepted and is part of the Bundjalund tribe.

The appointment of Amanda Lind as Minister for Culture has received criticism from Historian Åsa Linderborg, saying “The new Swedish Minister for Culture has, just like her predecessor Alice Bah Kuhnke, never talked about cultural political questions”

Looking back at Amanda Linds performance as a politician raises a few questions. Back in 2015 when she was a local politician for the Green party in Härnösand, she spent nearly $47,500 of taxpayers money on a new bicycle rack that could park up to 12 bicycles. The newspaper Allehanda calculated that it should only have cost around $11,000 for the project.

Now she will be the head at the Swedish Department of Culture which in 2018 had a budget of $1.76 billion.

College Teaches Ed. Students How To "Combat Toxic Masculinity"

Students at Lewis and Clark College’s Graduate School of Education (a teacher training college,) will be able from spring 2019 to enrol on a course that will teach them to recognise and deal with toxic masculinity in the classroom.

The course, intended for teachers and educators, will encourage participants to “analyze the effects of toxic masculinity and how they play out in our classrooms, communities, and lives," according to the prospectus. Participants who complete the course will have “a lesson plan based on an idea or strategy presented during sessions, and will return to their classrooms with strategies to combat toxic masculinity.”

Students can receive one semester hour by taking part in the course.

The course will be led by Chris Kelly and Jayme Causey. Causey is a 2016 graduate of nearby Portland State University and Kelly of the Lewis Clark College Graduate School of Education Oregon Writing Project. He has also presented workshops at the Northwest Teaching for Social Justice Conference in both 2017 and 2018. So loads of relevant experience then?

Prices for the course are $350 per hour for current students, $250 for those choosing to take the class not for credit, and 20 percent off for alumni of Lewis and Clark College who are also not taking the class for credit. So if ten people sign up these two wimpish hippys who cooked up the scam will net at least $2,500 an hour. Nice work for doing nothing more than jump on the latest politically correct bandwagon.

The current hysteria about "toxic masculinity," (which all lefties are sure they hate although none seem able to define it, was triggered by a Gillette "toxic masculinity" ad earlier in January which appeared to be trying to tell men that using Gilette products will help them become feminised sissies. Since the ad showed men doing mannish things (like shaving,) and boys doing boyish things (like fighting, coz girls never fight or squabble, they just inflict the cruellist and most humiliating types of bullying on other girls for silly things like not hasving the right shoes,) the topic of toxic masculinity has had lefties in a frenzy across the country, so much so that they have completely forgotten to tell us we are not real men unless we were born women and have had out vaginas turned inside out to make a sad facsimilie of a penis. Colleges have tried to address the perceived problem through workshops and other initiatives, though their attempts to demonstrate the difference between masculinity and toxic masculinity have so far failed.

Campus Reform interviewed Georgetown University students after the GIllette ad debuted, finding that while students opposed the concept, they were not sure what exactly "toxic masculinity" even was.

Facebook Rattled As Report Claims 50% Of Its Users Are Fake

As it is Burns day we think the words of Scotland's national poet serve pereftly as a warning to Silicon Valley nerds with world domination ambitions: "The best lain schemes o' mice and men gang aft agley."

One such world domination wannabe for whom things have gang agely in the past year is Facebook supremo Mark Zuckerberg. But as badly as things have gone for Facebook since the Cambridge Analytica data privacy scandal broke one year ago, in conformation of Murphy's law ("No matter how bad things are thery can always get worse," a new report froma team of researchers, led by a former coleague of Mark Zuckerberg at Harvard who helped Zuck create one of the original Facebook prototypes, suggests the reality of the company's circumstances is even more dire than investors realize.

In a report, "Facebook: 50% Users Fake," published on 24 January, 2019 by PlainSite, an independent research company founded by Aaron Greenspan, analysis reveals that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has regularly lied (nothing new there then,) to investors and media about the company's traffic statistics, and that the company could be overestating the number of active monthly users by as much as 50%.

The team detailed their findings in a 70-page report from which the extract below is taken, on their website.

Facebook has been lying to the public about the scale of its problem with fake accounts, which likely exceed 50% of its network. Its official metrics—many of which it has stopped reporting quarterly—are self-contradictory and even farcical. The company has lost control of its own product. Ultimately, this is just the latest sign that Facebook - formerly one of the world's most successful companies - is doomed to go the way of CompuServe and AOL.

PlainSite is a project launched by the Think Computer Corporation and Think Computer Foundation which aims to make "data accessible to the public free of charge” and "lets ordinary citizens impact the law- making process," according to Bloomberg. Aaron Greenspan recently told his story about how he fit into the history of Facebook's founding at Harvard on a podcast.

Facebook's numbers have been suspect for years, I remember around eight years ago blogging on how many duplicate accounts were on the site, and how many user accounts were bots, spamming members timelines with likes, comments, links and advertising matter presented as news. The company's fraudulent (because that is what they are,) business practices cheat its customers (advertisers) by giving a distorted picture of how effective advertising on facebook is likely to be, the report said.

Here are a few ways in which Facebook takes advantage of its fake traffic figures:

  • Fake accounts affect Facebook at its core in numerous ways:
  • Its customers purchase advertising on Facebook based on the fact that it can supposedly target advertisements at more than 2 billion real human beings. To the extent that users aren’t real, companies are throwing their money down the drain.
  • Fake accounts click on advertising at random, or “like” pages, to throw off antifraud algorithms. Fake accounts look real if they do not follow a clear pattern. This kind of activity defrauds advertisers, but rewards Facebook with revenue.
  • Fake accounts often defraud other users on Facebook, through scams, fake news, extortion, and other forms of deception. Often, they can involve governments

With Zuckerbergs plans to take over the world and establish a totalitarian nerdocracy in tatters what will happen next. It'd likely the US government security agencies will continue to prop up Facebook because the company can release a lot of dirt on the extent to which it cooperating in mass surveillance schemes, but it is likely users will desert in accelerating numbers and will certainly become more savvy about what information they reveal online. Unless of course Trump keeps his pledge to break up tech giants like Facebook, Google and Amazon.

No Deal, No Problem: World Runs On WTO Rules These Days - OECD Chief

As the deadlock in the UK Paliament over Brexit continues and the EU remains as intransigent as ever, while the political establishment mainstream media panic over the prospect of the UK leaving the EU with no trade deal, José Ángel Gurría Treviño, Secretary-General of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), has confirmed what many economocally savvy citizen pundits have said since the referendum result was announced, that the world’s advanced economies are “absolutely” able to cope with a No Deal Brexit, and that the OECD would help the United Kingdom to make it happen in “the most seamless possible way”.

Speaking at the elite World Economic Forum summit in Davos, Switzerland, the Mexican economist and former foreign minister was asked by Sky Television's Ed Conway in a decidedly sceptical tone: “If there were to be a No Deal, do you think that, do you think, you know, your members, the advanced economies, are they ready for that?”

“Absolutely,” the top bureaucrat replied, perhaps unhelpfully.

“You know, what’s the worst [case] scenario? No Deal, [World Trade Organization] rules — the whole world is running by WTO rules these days,” he added nonchalantly.

Obviously Conway was hoping for predictions of economic catastrophe and the collapse of British democracy. Since it became obvious Theresa Bay's Brexit In Name Only (BRINO) could not succeed it has been fashionable among the publicity junkie faction of pundits to say Britain cannot survive economicvally outside the EU, as if none of the vast majority of nations on the planet are not surviving. In fact it is the EU which is struggling for survival at the moment, the bureaucrats in Brusserls having overreached themselves and trigger a nationalist backlash in many member states.

Mr Gurría said he felt it was “unfortunate” that the United Kingdom was leaving the European Union, but was clear that it was “the will of the British people, so, you know, we take our bumps and we roll with it.”

“So you’re relatively sanguine about that,” the Sky presenter responded in surprise. “Some people are very worried,” he added.

“The UK is a member of the OECD,” Gurría said matter of factly. “And we’re going to make sure that this happens in the most seamless possible way, [and] that, you know, the costs are lowered.”

Davos 2019: As 1500 Private Jets Descend On The Small Swiss Resort, Climate Change Is High On The World Economic Forum Agenda

Standing atop a massive pile of money, the elitist looks down angrily at the poor man when he merely asks for a pay raise.

In his gas-guzzling private jet, the elitist travels half way around the world to angrily tell the poor man to use less energy:- The Gurning Grandad from Grimsby<.h3>

Every year leading figures from business, politics and entertainment gather at the World Economic Forum to discuss the world's most pressing problems. This year's theme is "Globalization 4.0: Shaping a Global Architecture in the Age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution".

The summit itself is a meeting of the global experts and influencers from politics to business, culture and the media. During the week these elite will meet and discuss a range of topics, including the economy, climate change and international relations.

The WEF's, a bunch of paternalistic neo-liberals like to pretend they are safeguarding the interests of the planet when really all they are interested in is looking after the interests of corporate business and the global elite. Thus their Global Risk Report for 2019 revealed that environmental crises, such as failures to tackle climate change, "are among the likeliest and highest-impact risk that the world faces over the next decade".

Founder and chief executive of the WEF Klaus Schwab, said it was "humanity's most existential challenge" and that it "requires urgent global action". He wrote: "Never has science been clearer in its concern about the risks of climate change and the stress this places on our oceans and other vital ecosystems, including tropical forests and freshwater sources.

"Yet our response to melting glaciers is glacial. While solutions increasingly exist, especially in the energy sector, there is as yet no movement on global action commensurate to the challenge." Perhaps he thinks we have not noticed that all the solutions the elites amd their pet 'experts' have so far proposed involve the working and middle classes sacrificing our lifestyles and pating punitive 'green' taxes which are used to fund 'green' projects that boost corporate profits and shovel our tax money into the coffers of businesses and the landowners who have put wind farms and solar farms on their property in order to scoop up the subsidies for 'sustainable' power that the 'green' taxes and levies on our fuel bills fund.

When he says "our response to melting glaciers is glacial," there is no intended irony in his words, he cannot be unaware that an anticipated 1,500 private jets will descend on Davos and nearby airports in Switzerland this week as the international financial and political elite gathers to talk about how to deal with global climate challenges by making us punters reduce our carbon footprint.

That number is an increase on the estimated 1,300 aircraft movements seen at last year’s forum, despite climate change registering as the top risk factor identified for the global economy then as well. In a survey of World Economic Forum (WEF) movers and shakers last week all placed the need to reduce carbon emissions highly among their priorities, yet none travelled by train and few by commercial airline.

Sir David Attenborough, a lead speaker this year, has already stated that climate is the issue of our time. The veteran broadcaster, 92, used his acceptance speech to tell business leaders and governments to come up with “practical solutions”. Speaking at the beginning of the forum on Monday, the Blue Planet and Dynasties narrator told the crowd he is “quite literally from another age” and warned of “man-made disaster of global scale” that lies ahead.

Were Attenborough have serious about his pleas for the environment, he ought to have used his platform to condemn events like the WEF, the United Nations Climate Conferences, G7 and G20 economic summits and so on. Industry group Air Charter Service calculated the private jet flights over the week, as delegates fly in to hear the likes of Attenborough speak at an event boasting a basic entry ticket price of U.S.$60,000 – per person. Around 3,000 participants are expected for the 2019 edition of the WEF.

Andy Christie, Private Jets Director at ACS, told the Guardian how the numbers are determined: "Davos doesn’t have its own airfield and, whilst we have several clients who fly into the town by helicopter, the four main airfields that private jet users attending the forum use are Zürich, Dübendorf, St. Gallen-Altenrhein and St. Moritz.

Working with WingX, we looked at private jet activity at those airports over the six days of each WEF week since 2013 – from one day before the event to one day after. Last year was the busiest year for private jets so far, showing an 11% increase on 2017, with more than 1,300 aircraft movements. If we see a similar increase this year, we could be looking at almost 1,500 aircraft movements over the six days.

Countries with the most arrivals and departures over the past five years at Davos are Germany, France, the UK, U.S., Russia, and UAE, respectively."

Demand for private jets far outstrips other events that also loom large on the private aviation calendar, such as the Super Bowl or Champions’ League final, according to Mr. Christie. “We have had bookings from as far as our operations in Hong Kong, India and the US ?- no other event has the same global appeal,” he said in a statement.

No wonder, those 3000 paying punters will be accompanied by their entourages, persdonal assistants, PR consultants, technical advisers and other people employed solely to make their bosses feel important. And the trend is towards even more expensive, larger private jets such as the Gulfstream GV and Bombardier’s Global Express. This may be in part due the long distances travelled, but according to aircraft industry sources is mainly due to business people not wanting to be outdone by rivals.

Teenage Girl Felt Like 'Just A Toy To Mess About With', Court Told

the daily stirrer
Men accused in latest Bradford abuse case (Picture: Telegraph and Argus)

A teenager who was groomed to have sex with a group of Muslim men told a jury in Bradgord Crown Court the abuse made her feel was “just a toy to mess with.”

Now in her mid-twenties, the woman told the Court she turned to alcohol and cocaine and started self - harming as coping mechanisms. She was coerced into having sex with the men in turn after they began arriving at her house when she was 16, she alleged.

“It snowballed and I ended up sleeping with every single one of them. I lost my ability to say no,” she said.

The witness told police officers investigating the case she let the men “party” at her home in return for food and cigarettes. One evening while she was in her pyjamas, three cars arrived containing a group of men and two young women. They provided “loads of alcohol” and one of the men told her: “Go in the bedroom and put something sexy on.”

When she refused, he grabbed her by the hair and forced her to the bedroom. The woman said she was scared and changed into leggings and a sequined top. Another night, she thought her drink had been spiked. She could not move her arms and she was “out of it.” She recalled lying naked on a mattress with a light shining in her eyes. A man had been having sex with her and others were in the bedroom doorway, laughing.

The woman said she found out later that she had been filmed for what is known as 'narcoporn.' She blacked out and woke alone the next morning “feeling like I had just gone ten rounds with Mike Tyson.”

Asked how she felt about her life at that time, she said: “I don’t think I knew myself. I don’t think I was a person, just a toy to mess about with. I think I completely shut off from everything.”

She went on to describe how on one occasion she believed she was having sex with one man but turned to see it was another one that she didn’t like. He was “horrible” and laughing about it. “I know it was abuse but at the time I thought it was attention that I wasn’t getting anywhere else,” she said.

The woman said she felt hurt and embarrassed.

The interviewing police officer describes her breaking down in tears as she said: “It takes away your whole personality. You just become a shell. There is nothing there. “I just wanted someone to care about me but no one ever did.”

She had undiagnosed mental health problems at the time and no support, she stated. “That was the only life I saw myself having,” she said, adding that she feared one of her abusers would end up killing her. The woman and another female complainant who suffered similar abuse at the hands of the gang were in the same Bradford children’s home when the sexual abuse began, it is alleged.

The jury has been told the teenagers were “ripe to be manipulated and vulnerable to exploitation.”

There are strong parallels with cases in Rotherham, Oxford, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Telford and many other towns with large immigrant communities around the country.

Yellow Vests Protest Merkel-Macron Plan To Integrate Defence, Foreign Policy

by Egbert Nobakon

The left wing wankerati will not doubt be screaming about racism and xenophobia when they learn of the latest exploits of the Yellow vest movement. This time it is the German branch of the movement who were out in the streets protesting against the latest step Hausfrau - Volksfuhrer Merkel and The Boy Macron have taken towards politically integrating Germany and France, a plot not mentioned by mainstream media but on which Original Boggart Blog and The Daily Stirrer have been following developments HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE, which they hope would create a strong enough axis to bully the other member states, one Britain is gone, into surrendering national sovereignty to the German - French dominated bloc.

But the people aren't buying it. Arrogant, aloof and catastrophically out of touch with the people they lead, the globalists Merkel and Macron seem convinced that the only way to end the civil unrest that is dividing their nations is to offer the voters bigger doses of the policies that caused the problems. More mass immigration, more exporting jobs to cheap labour economies and more pandering to Islamic extremists in the name of "multiculturalism and diversity."

In globalist circles that might be considered high intellect, but where I, most of my friends, and supporters of the Yellow vest live, it is called plain fucking stupid. Which is why German citizens wearing the iconic Yellow Vests that have become the symbol of the anti - establishment movement across Europe, protested against this move for which neither leader has a democratic mandate.

As the boy Macron and Hausfau - Volksfuher Merkel met to sign the treaty which aims to bring together the economic and defence policies of France and Germany in a prototype “Sovereign Europe”, German Yellow Vests supporters, joined by some who had travelled from France, protested outside.

German and French Yellow Vests outside the public hall in Aachen where Merkel and Macon were signing a mutual arse - kissing treaty. Picture RT)
Germany’s Angela Merkel and France’s Emmanuel Macron have negotiated an expansion of the 1963 French-German reconciliation Élysée treaty in Aachen, Germany, which they hope will pave the way for a Federal European superstate, and signed the deal on Tuesday.

The Treaty of Aachen proposes to integrate aspects of France and Germany, as the press statement euphemistically put it, including forging closer ties on economic, defence and foreign policy, merging public transport networks and utilities in border regions, creating a common economic area, and developing shared social and political fields, according to Euractiv.

The most controversial part of the treaty however, is the advancement of plans for defence, building on Merkel’s earlier pledges of for Macron’s ambition to create an EU army. So stupid is this proposal (do these two insaniacs have the faintest idea of how Poland, Hungary, Greece and other countries occupied by the Nazis in World War Two are going to react when asked to hand control of their armed forces to Germany and the cheese eating surrender monkey collaborators of France.

Dr Merkel told media on Tuesday: “We commit ourselves to forming a joint military culture, a common defence industry, a common line and common policy on arms exports. In so doing, we wish to give our contribution to the development of a new European army.

“This will only work if we coordinate at the same time our foreign policies.”

Its signing was meant to send a message to Eurosceptics that the two EU leaders would continue their efforts to further integrate not only the EU, but their own countries. It seems the message being picked up by voters is not the one she wanted them to hear.

Yellow Vests in Paris on 21 January.

The Gilets Jaunes (yellow vest)movement, which began as a Facebook group for dissatisfied French drivers almost a year ago and since the Macron government proposed a hike in fuel taxes for petrol and diesel cars spakred the first street protests, has mushroomed into a people's rebellion against globalism and corporatism. It has worried the French establishment and succeeded in forcing the usually arrogant and imperious President Macron into offering what globalist fellow travellers in mainstream media call major concessions from the government,

'Yellow Vests' Protests Becoming A Revolution - 10th Weekend of Civil Unrest in France

yellow vests in paris

Yellow vest demonstrators gathered in the French capital on Saturday for the 10th consecutive weekend of anti-government protests titled "Act 10". Protesters filled the streets of Paris and other cities in France, with thousands of police standing guard. Earlier, President Emmanuel Macron launched his “national debates” on the crisis.

Around 84,000 people joined the protests across the country on Saturday, the Interior Ministry said, showing that despite official resposts that support is dwindling the mass protests against elitist president Emmanuel Macron is not losing momentum.. The turnout was comparable to that of last week, meaning that the nation-wide debate on the crisis announced by President Emmanuel Macron has done little to change the people’s moods. No wonder, when the academic sppointed by Marcon at a salary ten times greater than the median household income, for a part time job, has alread been forced to resign due to public pressure.

In Paris yesterday, the Yellow Vests gathered in the Champs-Elysees and the Esplanade des Invalides near the nation’s parliament. People waved national flags and set off firecrackers.

Yellow Vest processions took place in Caen and Rouen, both in northern France. The rallies were also held in Strasbourg, Bordeaux, Toulon, Dijon, Beziers, Avignon, among other places.

Demonstrators started to assemble by the Invalides esplanade in the 7th arrondissement of Paris at 11:30 a.m. local time (10:30 GMT).

The crowd were shouting anti-government slogans, and singing protest songs. Demonstrators marched almost 10 miles through downtown Paris. Although there were fewer reports of violence, ffter the four-hour event ended in the afternoon a group of youths clashed with police outside Les Invalides complex of military museums.

Police were bombarded with bottles and garbage and responded with tear gas and water cannon, eyewitnesses reported. The radicals shouted insults back at them and hurled firecrackers.

As many as 80,000 law enforcement officers have been mobilized across France to keep order during the demonstrations which are also taking place in other French cities, the BFMTV broadcaster reported citing the French Interior Ministry.

Some protesters held up cardboard coffins, in memory of people who have died since the beginning of the protests (the majority was killed in traffic accidents during road blockades). They marched under a large banner reading “Citizens in danger.”

The Davosocracy Gang Gather As Globalism Goes Into Retreat Worldwide

the daily stirrer
The World Economic Forum pavilion, Davos - Picture source: Wikimedia commons.

As is usual at this point in January the people who like to think of themselves as the great and good of the world’s financial and political elite (though few outside the cabal would agree with the 'good' bit,) are assembling in the Davos - Kloisters ski resort in the Swiss Alps for the World Economic Forum. These people, who have travelled by private jet, often half way round the wold to get to the jolly, will discuss the urgent need to make ordinary punters like you and I reduce our carbon footprint, along with their vision of ever-closer commercial and political ties, i.e. a totalitarian world government made up of appointees from the political, business and academic elite.

These people will claim their plans and schemes are intened to work towards the greater good of humanity, which means to the benefit of banks, global corporations and the politicians and 'experts' that act as their enablers. Their world is an elitists' world.

However, their world is under attack, though Brexit has descended into farce thanks to the efforts of corrupt politicians who place the interests of the Davosocracy ahead of the interests of people who voted for them, nationalist parties are gaining strength throughout Europe, in the USA Trump has his political opponents in disarray, and all over the world the economic outlook is worsening as currency wars, trade wars and shooting wars show that the idea of all nations coming together as one is a hippy bong dream.

Britain’s political system has been thrown into chaos as the country negotiates a messy divorce from the European Union. Under President Donald Trump, the United States is imposing trade sanctions on friend and foe alike, and the government is paralyzed by a partial shutdown that forced Trump and a high-level U.S. delegation to cancel the trip to Davos.

French President Emmanuel Macron is facing what could turn into a second french revolution as he contends with “yellow vest” protesters calling for his resignation and the anti globalist, anti - elitist protest movement is spreading to other nations.

One of the keynote topics the WEF will bleather about this year is mental health. The forum will address fears that depression,and other mental health problems are rising to excessive levels. To put that another way the globalists are probably considering whether they can get away with telling us: "If you don't follow the groupthink, you must have 'mental health issues' and be sent away for reprogramming, sorry, 'treatment'"

The APA (American Psychological Association) which will be represented at Davos, has already pronounced that 'traditional masculinity' is a mental health issue. That position is going to be taught in every psychology degree program across the United States, starting NOW !

The APA and Harvard University are being sued for Title IX breaches because the psychology curriculum now discriminates against males.

But with trust in politics, the media and the professions close to absolute zero, it is unlikely many will fall for such bullshit.

Liberal News Site BuzzFeed Pilloried On Social Media After Fake News 'bombshell' on Mueller & Trump

buzzfeed fake news

Social media site Twitter has been a leading force in witch hunt by the US liberal left to impeach President Trump, constantly calling on the Special Counsel team headed by Obama appointee Robert Mueller to trigger the impeachment process they believe would result in Trump being removed from office, even though the Mueller inquiry has produced no evidence of 'high crimes and misdemeanours' against the president.

Since Trump's vicory in the 2016 election wild accusations that he collaborated with the Russian government have been flung about by Democrat politicians, liberal media organisations and Hollywood luvvies, none of which have been supported by a shred of credible evidence.

The latest fiaso occurred this week, when the strongly liberal buzzfeed online news site ran a story that proof had ben obtained of Trump ordering his lawyer to lie to Congressional investigators. Left leaning news channels and print media went into meltdown, claiming that it wad the 'smoking gun' that linked Donald J Trump and Vladimir Putin in a conspiracy to steal the election from Hillary Clinton. The excitement was shortlibed however, Mueller himself stated the BuzzFeed report claiming Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen lied to Congress on his boss' orders was "not accurate."

Or to use a buzz phrase, it was Buzzfeed FAKE NEWS.

Twitter having been set alight by the BuzzFeed story that claimed to have proof that President Donald Trump directly instructed his former attorney, Michael Cohen, to lie before Congress on his plans to build a hotel in Moscow that would have seen him meeting Russian officials, was reignited when Mueller shot it down.

After the "bombshell" was picked up (to a great extent uncritically) by the mainstream media, which floated impeachment through a legion of ever-ready pundits, it was beautifully ironic that the scoop was busted by the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller himself.

Gov. Mike Huckabee tweeted: @GovMikeHuckabee Breaking Wind from CNN! Buzzfeed will change it's name to "Buzzard Feed" because it proudly stands by its discredited, un-sourced, and utterly laughable Fake News about @realDonaldTrump so even after rebuke by Mueller it eats dead, rotted flesh of the roadkill of their story.

Facing a torrent of ridicule and derision, BuzzFeed tried to stand by its claims while others on the left rallied round. BuzzFeed Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith called on Mueller to clarify what exactly he had denied. "We stand by our reporting and the sources who informed it," he tweeted.

MSNBC's Chris Matthews (who famously "felt a tingle run up his leg" when he heard Obama speak, - no suggestion of political bias on his part then,) argued that the report being inaccurate "does not mean it is not true," while NBC's Ken Dilanian said Mueller denied only that part of the report that said he had obtained Trump organization documents supporting the allegations. He did not publish his evidence of course.

The New York Times, still bleeding after being beaten up in a Fake News scandal of its own, debunked the story, citing a person familiar with Cohen's testimony, who told them that the disgraced former lawyer "never implied the president had pressured him to lie to Congress."

Trump himself saw the craptangle as an opportunity, which he charateristically grabbed to remind the U.S. public it was Buzzfeed that first published "the totally discredited" Steele Dossier." BuzzFeed published the former British spy's largely fabricated evidence of Trump's links to Russian businessment in January 2017. "A very sad day for journalism, but a great day for our Country!" Trump tweeted.

Furious Yellow Vest protestors Clash with police ahead of Macron's summit with Mayors

France's crisis surrounding the presidency of Emmanuel Macron’s and his elitist style of governing continued to escalate today as poll showed Marcon's approval ratings plummeting to new lows and protestors staging angry demonstrations across the country. The so called Gilets Jaunes (yellow vests) protests which started in November have previously been confined to weekends but are now starting to take place throughout the week.

Protestors have today taken to the streets in Souillac ahead of Mr Macron’s arrival today. In tense scenes, demonstrators are facing off against heavily-armed police in the Occitan city.

It was an inauspicious start to Macron's grande debate, a project from which the wealthy elitist he appointed (at ten times a workers salary,) to the part time task of leading, has already been foreced to resign due to public disgust.

Google Staff Outrage When Boss Uses The Word Family - It's sexist, HomophobiC and Offensive

We know (and have reported many times,) that Google is an unpleasantly authoritarian organisation which embraces fashionanle 'liberal' causes only to advance its agenda of imposing the warped values of a bunch of Californian hippy acidheads on the world. We also know the search engine, along with its parent company Alphabet's many subsidiaries, is staffed by milktoast liberals and spineless snowflakes and that any employee found to hold an even slightly conservative point of view on anything will be hounded out of their job very quickly.

It is a matter of public record that Google employees have been fired for telling the truth, if the truth did not coincide with the message Google was trying to spread.

And despite many a public backlash, facing heavy fines from governments for violating local laws, and incurring the wrath of President Trump because of repeated abuses of users privacy and applying political bias when ranking search results. But, in loyaly devotion to the best Silicon Vallley tradition, Google continues to behave as if it is above the law and in fact makes the law, defines what can and cannot be said and how we must all behave. And the brainwashed staff are as bad as the neo - fascist corporate bosses.

A Google executive has 'trigggered' many of the fragile snowflakes employed by the wannabe World Domination Corp. by using the word “family” in a weekly, corporate presentation, according to internal documents leaked to The Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF).

Many employees became angry when the word was used while discussing a product marketed to children, because it implied that families have children, the documents reveal. The outrage became so intense that a Google VP conducted an exercise to obtain feedback on how the company's language could be made more inclusive.

The DCNF was handed the documents by a source who understadably insisted upon anonymity before sharing share them.

It is reported that one employee angrily walked out of the March 2017 presentation when an executive “continued to show (awesome) Unicorn product features which continually use the word ‘family’ as a synonym for ‘household with children.’” The employee posted an angry diatribe on an internal forum on why linking families to children is “offensive, inappropriate, homophobic, and wrong.” Apparently this was well-received by colleagues.

Here is an extract from that rant:

This is a diminishing and disrespectful way to speak. If you mean “children”, say “children”; we have a perfectly good word for it. “Family friendly” used as a synonym for “kid friendly” means, to me, “you and yours don’t count as a family unless you have children”. And while kids may often be less aware of it, there are kids without families too, you know.

The use of “family” as a synonym for “with children” has a long-standing association with deeply homophobic organizations. This does not mean we should not use the word “family” to refer to families, but it mean we must doggedly insist that family does not imply children.

Even the sense, “suitable for the whole family”, which you might think is unobjectionable, is totally wrong too. It only works if we have advance shared conception of what “the whole family” is, and that is almost always used to mean a household with two adults, of opposite sex, in a romantic/sexual relationship, with two or more of their own children. If you mean that as a synonym for “suitable for all people” stop and notice the extraordinary unlikelihood of such a thought! So “suitable for the whole family” doesn’t mean “all people”, it means “all people in families”, which either means that all those other people aren’t in families, or something even worse. Use the word “family” to mean a loving assemblage of people who may or may not live together and may or may not include people of any particular age. STOP using it to mean “children”. It’s offensive, inappropriate, homophobic, and wrong.

Roughly 100 other Google employees upvoted the post, signaling their agreement. Other Google employees also echoed their displeasure with the term. “Thanks for writing this. So much yes,” one wrote.

So as well as controlling the information we see, Google emplyees see their tasks as including the rewriting of the dictionary. The above example of the priggish, self - righteous attitude of snowflakes to a perfectly innocuous word usage show that while such people are always eager to accuse those who disagree with them of bigotry and intolerance, it is in fact they who are intolerant bigots, people so immersed in their obsessive desire to impose a completely warped set of authoritarian moral values on all of society they are unaware their behaviour is exactly like that of the fascists theu claim to abhor.

Brexit Is Now About More Than Leaving The EU

the daily stirrer
Cartoon source: www. cartoonmovement.com

Until now we have not posted anything on the shenanigans in parliament in the past few days over Brexit. Our position is well know to our few thousand readers a day and will quickly become obvious to new visitors and let's face it, the saturation coverage on TV and radio, in newspapers and online has left no room for a small alt_news site to say anything not already said. The whole thing is a craptangle, end of story, but it was obvious from the day Cameron did a runner and the Conservative Party engineered a situation in which the abysmal Theresa May was left as the only candidate for the leadership that there could be no other outcome.

Apart from having a track record as a remainer, albeit a slimy one who lack the courage to nail her colours to the mast (but that has always been her style, May has always been a woman driven by raw ambition and an outsize sense of entitlement along with the intelligence and skillset of a rather mediocre middle manager. But that alone doesn't explain why she made such a mess of trying to deliver Brexit.

Listening to politicians and media 'experts' you could be forgiven for thinking its a think it's an enormously complex and nebulous task, way 'beyond the understanding of us mere mortals. In reality the reason 'Brexit' has turned out such a mess is quite simple: for the last two and a half years Britain's political establishment has been trying to make Brexit disappear so we could go back to business as usual with a remote and unaccountable bureaucratic dictatorship in Brussels exercising ever more power over our nation.

Look at it logically, of the 650 UK Members of Parliament, about 70% represent constituencies where the majority of people voted for Brexit, but Members of Parliament favour staying in the EU by a majority of at least 70% to 30%. Well think of all those expenses paid jollies they will miss out on, several days at a time in the very best hotels eating the most exotoic foods, drinking the finest wines, having the most gorgeous high clas prostitutes delivered to their door, (oh yes - I was once working in a European capital when the political circus hit town, at the time I was earning big money, about ten times the average income, and the girls that followed the politicians and experts into town were asking for one night the equivalent of what I made in a month. Ironically the 'event' was a conference on stopping the spread of AIDS.

I digress, back to Brexit, when Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron, a globalist from the Cultural Marxist wing of the party, who has always been against leaving the EU, suffered a humiliation at the nads of British voters when we did not deliver the result had had so condidently expected, having staked his career on his ability to frighten us into rejecting the chance to leave the EU which was rapidly progressing from being a free trade group of European nations to becoming a federal superstate, with the national sovereignty of member states ceded to the EU commission in Brussels he petulantly quit. On succeeding him, Theresa May, appointed a team of politicians know to have supported seaparing the UK from the EU for years to neotiate the terms of leaving, then proceeded to undermine their efforts by making agreements behind closed doors with EU officials which hegated the work of her negotiators. After numerous resigations from members of her team, senior government ministers and members of prliamentary committees disgusted at the way the democratic vote was being betrayed. Eventually May, claiming she had taken charge of negotiations herself, delegated the job to a clique of rabidly Remain supporting civil servants who negotiated the pseudo-Brexit deal that would in effect keep the UK bound to the EU and under the jurisdiction of EU courts and lawmakers, while losing the few advantages that devolve from full membership.

That deal, which the EU loved and everyone in Britain (even Remain supporters,) hated, was the one voted down by a massive majority in Parliament. Leave supporting MPs saw it as a betrayal odf democracy, Remain supporters among our elected representatives were angry that we would not be part of the Federal Republic of Europe, but a vassal state.

The last 2.5 years of British politics have been a farce, is that while a majority of the British citizens who bothered to vote supported leaving the EU, their elected representatives on both sides of the house, along with mainstream media, the academic community and the state sector do not want to leave the EU and from day one are determined to make sure it never happend. This is the truth, to claim otherwise is to suggest British politicians were always as clueless about the nature of the UK's relationship with the EU as the most of the British public (not all of us, but a few; for example I spent nearly a year working for the EU in the 1980s, even then the plan was to marginalise Britain, the only eU member state capable of challenging the Franco = German axis domination of the bloc.

Here's a very brief summary of the full story. The decision that Brexit should not be allowed to happen was taken immediately after the result of the referendum was announced in 2016, that the establishment, in collaboration with the EU, were determined to overturn the result should have been evident to anyone with eyes to see. UK politics over last 2.5 years has not been primarily concerned with Brexit but with internal political power games, i.e. British politicians (with a few honourable exceptions,) positioning themselves within the British political system, which they are sure will remain an integral part of the EU, thus there will be plenty of easy jobs on enormous (and tax free) salaries available as political integration moves ahead.

The Conservative strategy since then has been to hold on to power at all costs by attempting to convince their voter base, through a mixture of project fear, unsubstantiated claims that the UK economy would collapse after leaving the EU, and the creation of fictitious national security threats (the demonisation of Russia and hyping the radical Islam bogeyman,) that the future after a clean Brexit would be bleak and dangerous, and that Theresa May's 'deal' is actually Brexit, when clearly it is anything but. The EU has been on exactly the same page as Theresa May and her pet civil servants all along.

At the same time, the Labour party has identified 'Brexit' as their best chance to force both a no-confidence vote in May's government and general election which they hoped to win by a landslide as voters turned on the Conservatives for betraying a demovratic vote. The no-confidence vote happened this evening and, as expected, the Conservatives survived with the support of Northern Ireland's 'more British than the Queen' Democratic Unionist Party (which has its own agenda to prevent the breakup of the United Kingdom and the reunification by stealth of Ireland, a situation engineered by that slimy little pouf Varadkar, who heads the Irish government).

.

It should be remembered that David Cameron's decision to 'green light' the referendum was narrow, party political manoeuvreing. At the time of the 2015 election, the Conservative party was concerned that the 'far-right' as the media calls them, anti - EU party UKIP - which had run a decades-long campaign for the UK to leave the EU - would attract enough support from traditional Conservative voters (the majority of whom wanted to leave the EU) it would be impossible for the conservatives to win an election. That is why Cameron, even though he is a committed globalist and an ardent 'Remainer', assented to the referendum. That and his absolute confidence that a campaign of propaganda and misinformation would deliver the result he wanted. At the time, the bi-partisan British political establishment was convinced that - when it came down to it - the majority of voters would vote to remain in the EU. When a majority voted for Brexit, they were more than a little shocked.

But an important question that has been mostly overlooked throughout the Brexit face is; what, exactly, galvanized so many British people to vote to leave the EU definitively? To understand that, one must look at the Yellow Vests protests and success of Marine Le Pen's Rasemblement national in France, the success of parties like th AfD in Germany and Sweden Democrats, Lega and Five Star Movement in Italy and the resurgence of nationalism throughout Europe. And we should not forget the rejection of establishment politics by voters in the USA when they chose Donald Trump over the corrupt, tainted, Washington insider Hillary Clinton as their president.

French riot police have also deployed semi-automatic weapons with live ammunition against Yellow Vest protestors for the first time. Officers were filmed brandishing Heckler & Koch G36 weapons by the Arc de Triomphe in Paris on Saturday afternoon.

The presence of semi-automatic rifles at a demonstration by unarmed French citizens shows how President Emmanuel Macron is losing control as the civil disobedience crisis spirals.

Sweden to end months without a government

Stefan Lofven
Swedish Prime Minister stefan Lofven (Photo: T Camus, AP)

Since the inconclusive election in September 2018, in an example of the pro EU, globalist political establishment showing contempt for the democratically expressed wishes of the people, Sweden has been without an effective government as establishment parties, supported by mainstream media and the EU conspired to deny the Eurosceptic Sweden Democrats the share of power they had earned at the election. With all parties refusing to work with the Sweden Democrats (often called a far right party although the only policy they are to the right of the socialists on is mass immigration,) Social Democrat PM Stefan Lofven is set to retain his post by promising to move his party, the Social Democrats, to the right.

Socialist extremists The Left Party on Wednesday and allow Prime Minister Stefan Lofven to take a second term in office. The Left party said it would abstain in a crucial vote on Friday, clearing the way for Lofven and his patchwork coalition.

Lofven, leader of the Social Democrats, has been leading a caretaker government since elections on September 9 left neither the 'centre right' not the 'centre left' bloc able to form a government. Although the Social Democrats won the most votes, their 31.1% support left them too far off the numbers they needed to form a coalition with The Greens and other left groups in a country with eight mainstream parties and proportional representation. The right bloc could have formed a coalition but the smug, self - righteous Christian Democrats would not accept the participation of the Sweden Democrats. The obvious answer was a rerun of the general election but with all the signs showing the Sweden Democrats and their only allies The Moderates looking set to make more gains, the establishment parties wrre willing to do anything except that.

These problems were compounded by the fact that the thing Swedes fear more than a face to face confrontation with an Enochian demon or one of Daenerys Targaryen's Dragons from Game of Thrones is being accused of racism. most other parties wanted to govern without the support of the Left and the far-right Sweden Democrats. With the Left party, (never referred to as far - left though they are militant Maoists, far more extreme than the Sweden Democrats,) also being unacceptable coalition partners to the left bloc this left both sides unable to command a majority.

After four months of negotiations the Social Democrats have finally managed to cobble together an bodged up coalition of the left and right wing (similar to Merkel's dysfunctional coalition in Germany,) by gaining the support of the Greens, Liberals, and the Center party. In doing so, however, Lofven has had to promise to take his traditional center-left party to the right. A shift to the right in Swedish politics has been inevitable for years as loonytoons, politically correct government has reduced ti country to near - failed - state chaos.

"Sweden needs a government," said Lofven, adding that he was "humbled to have been nominated" for Friday's vote.

With the Left party abstaining from the vote, Lofven is pretty much guaranteed success. However, the leftists have warned that they would vote down the new government if the prime minister went forward with reforms on the labor law and rent hikes for newly-built homes so the future for Lofven's desperate big to cling to power looks bleak as the far left can bring down his government any time he does something that offends their extremist sensibilities.

Mass Immigration

Ghosts Of ’68 Threaten Macron’s Technocratic Dream.

by Arthur Quinnell

The idealistic hope that mass protests and civil disobedience could trigger real social change met with some success in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries but looked to have died after the USA's 1960s civil rights movement and anti - war protests. The recent mass demonstrations of Frane's gilets jaunes (yellow vests) movement in 2018, a movement which has spread to Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Britain, Italy, Sweden and Canada looks to have resurrected this style of political activism.

The yellow vest movement is not idologically fuelled as protests from the 1920s to 1960s were; it's fueled by desperation and what Francis Fukuyama in a recent essay (Against Identity Politics (Foreign Affairs, Sept/Oct. 2018),termed the working classes' "perception of invisibility" a view echoed by French geographer / author Christophe Guilluy who said that "the French people are using the gilets jaunes to say we exist." Unstoppable": Christophe Guilluy on the cultural divide driving the yellow vests (via Arshad A.)

"Not only does peripheral France fare badly in the modern economy, it is also culturally misunderstood by the elite. The yellow-vest movement is a truly 21st-century movement in that it is cultural as well as political. Cultural validation is extremely important in our era.

One illustration of this cultural divide is that most modern, progressive social movements and protests are quickly endorsed by celebrities, actors, the media and the intellectuals. But none of them approve of the gilets jaunes. Their emergence has caused a kind of psychological shock to the cultural establishment. It is exactly the same shock that the British elites experienced with the Brexit vote and that they are still experiencing now, three years later."

The author expands on how the working-classes have come to be excluded?
"All the growth and dynamism is in the major cities, but people cannot just move there. The cities are inaccessible, particularly thanks to mounting housing costs. The big cities today are like medieval citadels. It is like we are going back to the city-states of the Middle Ages. Funnily enough, Paris is going to start charging people for entry, just like the excise duties you used to have to pay to enter a town in the Middle Ages.

The cities themselves have become very unequal, too. The Parisian economy needs executives and qualified professionals. It also needs workers, predominantly immigrants, for the construction industry and catering et cetera. Business relies on this very specific demographic mix. The problem is that ‘the people’ outside of this still exist. In fact, ‘Peripheral France’ actually encompasses the majority of French people."

And the role the liberal metropolitan elite played in this?
We have a new bourgeoisie, but because they are very cool and progressive, it creates the impression that there is no class conflict anymore. It is really difficult to oppose the hipsters when they say they care about the poor and about minorities.

But actually, they are very much complicit in relegating the working classes to the sidelines. Not only do they benefit enormously from the globalised economy, but they have also produced a dominant cultural discourse which ostracises working-class people.

The middle-class reaction to the yellow vests has been telling. Immediately, the protesters were denounced as xenophobes, anti-Semites and homophobes. The elites present themselves as anti-fascist and anti-racist but this is merely a way of defending their class interests. It is the only argument they can muster to defend their status, but it is not working anymore.

Now the elites are afraid. For the first time, there is a movement which cannot be controlled through the normal political mechanisms. The gilets jaunes didn’t emerge from the trade unions or the political parties. It cannot be stopped. There is no ‘off’ button. Either the intelligentsia will be forced to properly acknowledge the existence of these people, or they will have to opt for a kind of soft totalitarianism."

By mobilizing 80,000 heavily armed "security forces" in an unsuccessful attempt to suppress dissent, as President Macron has, looks more like hard authoritarianism than soft totalitarianism. The boy Macron has of course tried to justify his heavy handed response by a fatuously claiming he has a duty to defend "the social order," i.e. to maintain the domination of the ruling elite.

But the French elites are discovering the unsettling reality that it's impossible to defend every traffic-speed camera, every bank, etc. from sabotage and that their working class challengers are smart enough to know this. I've often finished article calling for civil action against authoritarianism with the line, "THEY CAN'T PUT US ALL IN PRISON." It is intended as a warning to those who would control society, rather than an exhortation to those who challenge authority.

The class analysis of the current crisis shows a reversal of polarity from the 1968 general strike of elite students and labor unions. Fifty years ago, the students of the elite universities, in an orgy of virtue signalling (the left never changes though they scream for change,) lent their support to the trade unions and this combination nearly toppled the government with a general strike.

Now, students of the elite Paris universities, brainwashed with politically correct ideology on gay and trans rights, the desirability of mass immigration and the duty of nanny state to micromanage our private lives, are supporters of the technocrat elite, as the most fervent hope of most of these students is to nail down a position in a government department or QANGO, jobs which are threatened by the yellow vest dissenters.

The labor unions are also missing in action, as they are now adjuncts of the ruling elites, feeding at the same trough of tax revenues and corporate globalization-financialization profits and promoting the same policies that are damaging to working class living standards and social mobility: mass immigration, globasisation (which the working class recognise as exporting jobs,) Islamification of society, erosion of national sovereignty and cultural values and so on.

The gilets jaunes / yellow vests are a working class revolt against the elites, who like medieval aristocrats, regard the "lower orders" as stupid, infantile and in need of paternalistic guidance, and those among the working and lower middle class who identify with the elites: the pseudo-progressive hipsters, the aspiring technocrats and the comfortably secure state employees, all of whom are now on the elite side of the barricades.

The Paris elites and their enablers may find that the next general strike won't immobilize Paris, it will strangle Paris from the periphery. The unions which were on the democratic side of the barricades 50 years ago may find their identification with the ruling elite challenged, and they'll be forced to either remember their roots and side with the authentic working class (yellow vests) in a general strike or throw their support behind the undemocratic technocrats like Marcon and those in his administration, who planned to run France for the benefit of their own caste, the university educated, progressive liberal, globalist, soft left.

The quasi-progressives claim to be anti-fascist but are themselves the anti-working class fascists (Beniot Mussolini defined fascism as the collaboration of state and corporate business to exercise absolute power,) and are not appreciating the fact that the 'stupid working class oiks' of the Yellow Vest movement are exposing their self-serving hypocrisy. Like the US liberals of the early twentieth century, they are all for civil rights "so long as the niggers don't leave the plantation."

Here's a news snippet that encapsulates exactly what is wrong with the way Marcon and his elitist cronies are trying to handle the crisis. "On Tuesday, the person picked to lead the country's planned "great debate" on the issues resigned over her €14,666 monthly salary (£13,200; $16,800)" which is $200,000 annually, roughly seven or eight times the average worker's salary.

Now what kind of plonker would put an academic who already has a well paid position in charge of establishing dialogue with truck drivers, factory workers and labourers who, thanks to elitist policies, are stuggling to make ends meet. That's the kind of insensitivity responsible for triggering the anger that drives the protests, an illustration of class division in a nutshell. The fake-progressive technocrats are skimming $200,000 a year to defend an indefensible undemocratic neofeudal system of exploitation that handsomely benefits the few at the expense of the many. And the hypocrites call Marcon's opponent Marine Le Pen "far right." Bollocks.

55 Men Arrested over Alleged Child Sex Abuse in Bradford Area, England

West Yorkshire Police have arrested 55 men in connection with alleged historic child sexual abuse. Detectives investigating allegations grooming and sexual abuse of under age girls and vulnerable young women in the Kirklees region of Yourkshire have arrested 55 men as part of an ongoing investigation.

Arrests in the case began back in November 2018, according to a report in the Yorkshire Evening Post but details have only just ben released for reasons not disclosed. The individuals were arrested from addresses in Dewsbury, Batley and Bradford, West Yorkshire Police revealed today.

All 55 men arested so far have been interviewed and released under investigation as detectives continue to make inquiries.

The arrests began in November 2018, with the suspects identified as hailing from Dewsbury, Batley, and Bradford by a BBC report. The alleged abuse involves seven women said to have been targeted as children in the Kirklees area between 2002 and 2009.

“This investigation demonstrates the force’s ongoing commitment to the investigation of both current and non-recent sexual offences against children,” Detective Inspector Ian Thornes said.

“Child sexual abuse and exploitation is an abhorrent and heinous crime and one which affects some of the most vulnerable people in our society.”

The Detective Inspector issued a broad appeal for other victims to come forward, whether their abuse was historical or more recent, giving possible victims this assurance: “Please be assured that you will be listened to, taken seriously, and supported by professionals with experience of dealing with these kind of offences.”

The investigation centres on allegations made by seven women of sexual abuse committed against them as children predominantly in the Dewsbury and Batley area between 2002 and 2009.

LITTLE ISTANBUL: Turkish Muslims have made Germans feel like foreigners in their own country

When Turks buy a building, they don’t allow any German people to move in. The next thing you know, there is a mosque and soon the whole neighborhood has become a ‘NO GO Zone’ for non-Muslims.

Ignore the little story below about a “well-integrated” Turkish Muslim family in Germany. Their biggest complaint is being lumped in with Arab Muslims in the media because they believe Turks as superior to the Arabs, yet we never hear lefties screaming about such overt racism. In spite of their Western attire, these are Muslims first, Turks second and will never consider themselves Germans and members of a tolerant, multi racial community, nor truly assimilate into the German culture.

They are also a lot of Kurds in Germany thanks to the virtue signaling of the politically correct elite. To germans they look like the same,but they live in different worlds. Turks buy at Turk shops if they can,Kurds do the same. You will never see a Turk or Arab or African buying in a german bakery.And you know germany is known for their many different types of bread and their exotic cakes and pastries.

In the Ruhrpott Area(near Cologne)now, reports are reaching mainstream media of Turkish comunity members fleeing the area because of the Gypsies, an enthic group the Turkish Muslims regard as 'unclean' and refuse to live among.

First Swedish Yellow Vest Protest -Female speaker: “Put feminism on hold for 10-20 years”

Sweden Yelow Vests
Yellow vest movement arrives in Sweden and a female speaker shock smug liberals with rejection of the politically correct consensus (Sourve: VoiceofEurope.com

A Demonstration held in central Stockholm last weekrnd was the first major event in Sweden to feature Yellow Vests. There have been previous small protests by groups of people wearing the symbolic yellow vests but the weekend's even represents an escalation in support of the movement. This time, people gathered at Norrmalmstorg to show their dissatisfaction with how Sweden is governed.

The Swedes don’t riot, burn and smash things up like the immigrants they have let into the country, or the French yellow vests, – instead they hold peaceful events, orderly protests with popular speakers.

Standing in front of a lage Swedish flag, the speakers eloquently stated their opinion one at a time.

Independent politician Morten Källström asked why Sweden looks like it does today, with politicians who neither speak of the problems, (no - go zones, rocketing sex crime rates, inter - gang turf wars in cities, all linked to immigrant communities,) nor do something about them. “It is because we have no democracy. Our country is about as democratic as the former communist states of eastern Europe. We need politicians who dare speak up and state their opinion”, he stated and told the audience that, “Nepotism is the reason, and more power to the people is the answer.”

Theologian Irma Udelius argued that since feminism was elevated to state ideology in Sweden, the number of rapes has multiplied, and genital mutilation and child marriage have become part of everyday life. The solution, she explained, is to pause feminism and reinstate the patriarchy – for a period of 10-20 years. And then conduct a referendum to ascertain whether people think society has gotten better or worse.

“It is no longer about the right and the left, it’s about we, the people against our power-abusing politicians”, journalist and writer Katerina Janouch told the audience. “Between 2015 and 2018, we took in 522.980 migrants. An unimaginable amount that we are unable to handle. We spend billions on people without valid grounds for asylum, while our pensioners can’t afford a proper meal.”

“And yet so many continue to vote for this.” “Are they dumb in the head, or are they evil?”, she asked. “Both” the crowd replied.

She also mentioned the terrorist attack in Stockholm in 2017, where 5 people lost their lives – and the reaction – “hands and hearts against racism”. “Swedes are the least racist people in the world, and we do not need anti-racist manifestations, we need to raise up, and speak up and demand sound and sane politics.”

“We will not give up, we will continue to protest, this is just the beginning, she concluded and shouted, “For Sweden – against the abuse of power!” The audience repeated her words and applauded loudly.

It looks as if the yellow Vest movement might be developing into a serious challenge for the politically correct consensus that has metastized through the political establishments of the free world.

Integrity Initiative faces setback in Norway

The comically misnamed Integrity Initiative, an NGO supported by the UK government for the purpose of suppressing news and opinion critical of government and United Nations policy (a.k.a. fake news and putting in its place fabricated news stories and 'on message' propaganda masquerading as independent opinion (real news!), is on a crusade to create a unified anti-Russia narrative throughout Europe and the USA. Unfortunately Integrity Initiative has hit a roadblock: According to the organization, Norwegians are too skeptical of US politics and not adequately anti-Russia.

A series of leaks have revealed that Scottish-based NGO, which presents itself as a non-partisan warrior against disinformation and propaganda, received £2.5 million from the UK government to manufacture ficticious stories demonizing the Russian government, with the aim of manufacturing anti-Russia hysteria across the Western world.

Why governments and supranational bureaucracies such as NATO and the EU want to do this is anybody's guess, a return to 1950s cold war conditions cannot really be to anybody's advantage, unless of course the elites see their dream of a New World Order fading and are desperately trying to create a scary enough bogeyman to scare us into submission.

To accomplish their task, whatever it actually is, the organization recruited “clusters” of individuals working in entertainment, politics, media, and academics to help push the desired narrative.

Unfortunately, this strategy has faced unforeseen obstacles, the Yellow Vest movement in France has caused many people to question official narratives more closely, abandonment of mainstream news for independent news websites by a public not easily fooled by government spin and propaganda, and a leaker with a social conscience revealed Integrity Initiative internal documents which discussed strategies for discrediting or suppressing factual news reports and promoting in their place fake news stories critical of Russia and its allies. According to a leaked internal report detailing the organization’s activities in Norway, the Norwegian public are too “soft” on Russia – which is obviously unacceptable.

Outlining an August 2016 conference organized by the group in Oslo, the report that was listed along the fourth wave of leaks from Integrity Initiative laments that Norwegians are “generally inclined to be soft on Russia as a near neighbor in the North (where there is a tradition of friendship and a good working relationship).”

On top of that, some Norwegians refuse to blindly trust the United States or accept that the western neo-liberal democracies are always 'the good guys': “Although the public can be hard-nosed about Putin and Moscow’s policies, their skepticism of US/Western politics can lead to their being less critical of Russia’s position at times,” the report states. For Integrity Initiative, this problem is further exacerbated by the fact that “Norwegian journalists tend to give Russian information the same weight as Western information, not testing its veracity.”

The problem here is perhaps that Norwegian journalists test information from western government sources for veracity, and find it no more reliable than what we get from Russia.

Luckily the organization laid out “next steps” that should be taken to cure Norwegians of their dangerous level-headedness.

Integrity Initiative should “approach influential journalists to pick up this story and educate the public,” the report recommends. The report also calls on Integrity Initiative to “stimulate a series of papers” that align with their anti-Russia agenda.

British left & right don Yellow vests to demonstrate anger over political chaos, Brexit & migrants

UK yellow vests, London
UK Yellow Vests - source RT

While mainstream media and the UK government Ministry of Propaganda organisation, BBC News, try to brant the UK's Yellow Vests movement as 'far right' (anyone who is even slightly less fascistic than Chairman Mao is 'far right' according to modern, university brainwashed 'anarchists,' the people who put on their Yellow Vests to join British protests this weekend have embraced the ethos of the French movement by abandoning left - right name calling as both sides of the debate rally to the same symbol. This is not left versus right (a synthetic conflict engineered by propagandists and mainstream media,) and understood the battle is between the ruling elites and their cronies verus The People.

The Yellow Vests ceased to be a uniquely French phenomenon in mid December when protests took place in Netherlands, Belgium and other EU member states. Since then the movement has spread further afield with protestors in yellow vests taking to the streets in Egypt, India, Turkey, Canada and Australia. Before the Christmas break British protesters had started donning the distinctive high-visibility jackets to make their own (very different) points, but this weeken was the fiirst on which large scale demonstrations happened. In the UK, an array of left-wing movements vowed to use the yellow vest during their protests in favor of bringing down the Tory government and abandoning austerity. RT’s Polly Boiko explains. But this is where the similarities between the French and British factions end.

Far Right sand Far Left activists, some of whom belong to hardcore far-right groups like the English Defence League or Far left organisations like Aintifa or Unite Against Fascism, are also trying to capitalie on the hi - vis vest symbol of protest. They vent their anger at the Brexit deal stalemate, heckle politicians, and harass Muslims and Jews both online and offline. Such groups “who are trying to use anger and mobilize it against refugees and migrants and ethnic minorities are not welcomed in our demonstrations,” said Shabbir Lakha, spokesman for the anti-austerity People’s Assembly. He doesn't seem to have a problem with people who harass Brext supporters, conservatives, Jews, or white people who stray into the wrong part of town of course.

Thousands of Yellow Vests March in Paris and Bourges

yellow vests protestors

As if in response to reports from 'fake news' mainstream media organisations that support from the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow vests) movement in France is dwindling, thousands of protestors wearing yellow vests marched in the streets of Paris as others were gathering in the central French city of Bourges in protest against the government of Emmanuel Macron. The demonstrations took place amid high security measures as authorities feared possible violence between police and protesters.

In Paris thousands of people gathered near the Finance Ministry in at around 11 a.m. (1000 GMT; 5 a.m. EST) and were walking peacefully in the central streets of the capital. They were planning to head toward Champs-Elysees avenue. Paris police say 24 people were arrested Saturday before the protests started, primarily for carrying potential weapons.

Meanwhile, yellow vest protesters were also gathering in Bourges, a provincial capital with a renowned Gothic cathedral and picturesque wood-framed houses, where online groups mounted calls through the week for actions.

Authorities deployed 80,000 security forces nationwide for a ninth straight weekend of anti-government protests. Interior Minister Christophe Castaner threatened tough retaliation against rioters and their backers, warning of increasing radicalization among the largely peaceful demonstrators.

The numbers of people protesting diminished over the holidays but there has been a resurgence this week, despite President Emmanuel Macron’s promises of tax breaks, higher public spending and an upcoming “national debate” to address demonstrators’ concerns. Not only do protesters believe these are false promises, they have lost what little trust in the politiocal establishment they had at the time Marcon was elected, and want deeper changes to France’s economy and politics, seen as favouring the rich and corporate businesses.

For the mass of ordinary people, far from the political, financial, media centers of power in Paris, democracy is already moribund, and their movement is an effort to save it. Ever since Margaret Thatcher decreed that “there is no alternative”, Western economic policy is made by technocrats for the benefit of financial markets, claiming that such benefits will trickle down to the populace. The trickle has largely dried up, and people are tired of having their needs and wishes totally ignored by an elite who “know best”.

President Emmanuel Macron’s New Year’s Eve address to the nation made it perfectly clear that after one unconvincing stab at throwing a few crumbs to the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vests) protest movement, he has determined to get tough

France is entering a period of turmoil. The situation is very complex, and made more difficult for the authorities to understand because the protestors are a true grass roots movement, with no political ideology, no leaders and no formal organisation behind them. Inevitably some sections of French media and a few pro - EU politicians have tried to suggest Russia is behind the unrest, but this is plainly ridiculous.

The Yellow Vests gather in conspicuous places where media coverage is guaranteed: the Champs-Elysées in Paris, main squares in other cities towns, and the numerous traffic circles on the edge of small towns. Unlike traditional demonstrations, the Paris protests have been very loose and spontaneous, people just walking around and talking to each other, with no leaders and no speeches.

The absence of leaders is what separates the movement from normal political activism. All politicians, even friendly ones, are mistrusted and no one is looking for a new leader. People are organizing their own meetings to air their grievances and voice demands.

In the village of Commercy, Lorraine, a half hour drive from Domrémy where Joan of Arc was born, inhabitants gathered to read their proclamation. Six of them read in turns, a paragraph each, making it quite clear that they want no leaders, no special spokesperson. They sometimes stumble over a word, they are not used to speaking in public like the TV talking heads. Their “Second appeal of the Gilets Jaunes de Commercy invites others to come to Commercy on January 26-27 for an “assembly of assemblies”.

Yellow Vests protest in Commercy (scroll down to continue reading report):
">

This was in a small community, similar events have taken place, unreported, all over France while the noisier, more violent protests in the large cities claim worldwide news coverage. But the Commercy protest demonstrates the depth of dissatisfaction with government in France, but not conflined to France.

Today as in previous weeks, Paris police deployed armored vehicles, horses and attack dogs around the city today. Subway stations and some shops closed, notably around government buildings and the Champs-Elysees, the avenue where the presidential palace is located. Luxury boutiques in the avenue have been hard hit by repeated rioting in past protests.

In a press statement Paris police said they had made several arrests before Saturday’s actions, notably in France’s historic Gypsy or traveler community, which has called for protests in support of a boxer caught on video punching police last weekend in central Paris. That incident dominated French media over the past week and prompted fears of escalated tensions between protesters and police. Boxer Christophe Dettinger turned himself in to police and is in custody pending trial.

Such tactics by government and police areonly likely to harden attitudes in the protest movement.

Alleged Rape Gang on Trial in Bradford, England

An alleged grooming gang accused of abusing underage girls in a children’s care home is on trial in Bradford, England.

Prosecutor Kama Melly QC told the court the prosecution will prove that all the men have “exploited and manipulated” the two alleged victims in 2008, when they were aged 14, “in a variety of ways, taking advantage of their youth and the situation. [T he girls] found themselves in, both just entering care and in really difficult circumstances,” the BBC reports.

“Some of the defendants were actually forceful, threatening and violent, others used alcohol and drugs, others created a manipulated relationship in order to facilitate their sexual exploitation,” she added.

“But all defendants, say the Crown, engaged in cynical and manipulative behaviour in order to achieve their objective of sexual activity with [the girls].”

The defendants, who deny the charges, have been named as follows:
Basharat Khaliq, 38, of Deanwood Crescent, Bradford, charged with five counts of rape and one count of assault by penetration
Saeed Akhtar, 55, of Back Girlington Road, Bradford, charged with two counts of inciting child prostitution and one count of rape
Yasar Majid, 37, of Laxfield Drive, Milton Keynes, charged with one count of rape
Naveed Akhtar, 43, of Newport Place, Bradford, charged with three counts of rape
Parvaze Ahmed 36, of Farcliffe Road, Bradford, charged with three counts of rape
Izar Hussain, 32, of St Leonard’s Road, Bradford, charged with three counts of rape and one count of attempted rape
Zeeshan Ali, 32, of Durham Terrace, Bradford, charged with one count of sexual assault
Kieran Harris, 28, of Fir Parade, Dewsbury, charged with two counts of rape
Faheem Iqbal, 27, of no fixed abode, charged with aiding and abetting rape
Mohammed Usman, 31, of Quaker Street, Bradford, charged with two counts of rape


“But all defendants, say the Crown, engaged in cynical and manipulative behaviour in order to achieve their objective of sexual activity with [the girls].”

We will report progress as the trial continues.

"We Don't Take Orders From Bolton": US Withdrawal From Syria Begins

How the Democrats and left leaning media mocked Trump when, after he announced a withdrawal from Syria, Security adviser John Bolton said, "Sure, we're going to withdraw sometime, but not for a few years yet. National Security Advisor, Bolton, an old school neocon was joined by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, an old school fat bloke, who suggested earlier this week that US troops would remain in Syria for at least a little while longer.

The confidence of these military / industrial complex plants in the Trump administration was misplaced however, Associated Press reported on Friday that the US has begun the process of removing the 2,000 soldiers based in northeastern Syria.

The AP report was based on information from the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights; the withdrawal officially began Thursday night local time. A convoy of armored vehicles and trucks left the town of Rmeilan into drove across the border into Iraq. Col. Sean Ryan, of the coalition fighting the Islamic State terrorists confirmed that the US has started "the process of deliberate withdrawal from Syria."

US Withdrawal from Syria gets under way (Source: Zero Hedge

Trump's decision last month to pull US troops out of Syria angered former Defense Secretary James Mattis, who resigned over the decision, and stoked fears that Trump was abandoning the Kurds to a massacre by Turkish forces, who have vowed to pick up the slack in Syria when it comes to fighting ISIS.

"These have been folks that have fought with us and it’s important that we do everything we can to ensure that those folks that fought with us are protected," Pompeo said of the Kurds while visiting Irbil, the capital of Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region, after talks in Baghdad.

After ordering airstrikes in Syria in 2014, President Obama deployed troops on the ground the following year to combat, ostensibly to combat ISIS but Obama is known for his love of terrorists ans Islam and stated many times his priority was to remove the Assad regime. US actions against ISIS, which at the time controlled large swaths of northeastern Syria were ineffectual, some said intentionally, and it was not until Russia and Iran stepped up to support the Syrian government that the terrorists began to suffer setbacks. Since then, the group has been beaten back, and now control only 1% of their former territory.

Initially, Trump had said the pullout would be complete within a matter of weeks, but plans became murky after the Pentagon requested four months to complete the withdrawal. Last night, the Wall Street Journal reported that the withdrawal would begin immediately.

To account for shifts in plans, the military will stage the personnel and equipment needed for a possible withdrawal, rather than move the U.S. forces out. Troops tasked to help with the eventual withdrawal already are in the area, in places like Kuwait and al-Asad air base in western Iraq.

"Nothing has changed," one defense official said. "We don’t take orders from Bolton." A reminder to the military perhaps that no mattert what the DC Democrats and Hollywood liberal luvvies think of him, Trump is Commander in Chief as long as the holds the office of president.

Salvini Visits Poland To Discuss "Eurosceptic Alliance"

Finding himself and other European Union (EU) leaders opposed to political integration of the bloc into a federal superstate dominated by Germany and France under constant pressure from the increasingly authoritarian EU commission as it tries to impose its globalist agenda on member states, the de fact leader of Italy's democratic government, Matteo salvini, is not without allies. Salvini is emerging as the Eurosceptic figurehead for EU member states that have embraced a more conservative, populist or anti-immigration position or found themselves at loggerheads with the authoritarian, unelected, bureaucracy in Brussels, either through Article 7 threats against Hungary, a rule-of-law investigation into Poland's ruling party or threats of an excessive debt proceeding against Italy. The leaders of these states finally appear to be banding together to try and push back against Brussels.

According to a report from Reuters, Matteo Salvini, nominally Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister because the EU, once again showing its contempt for democracy, refused to accept the leader of the democratically elected government, is planning to meet with the leader of Poland’s ruling party, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, on Wednesday to look at the possibility of creating a "eurosceptic alliance" to contest in the European Parliamentary elections in May, and probably replace the dominant pro - federalism alliance in the European Parliament.


Matteo Salvini

The idea is part of a broader plan by eurosceptic governments that hope to "fundamentally shift the political balance of the European Union after the Europe - wide election." Salvini's visit to Warsaw will take place at the invitation of Polish Interior Minister Joachim Brudzinski.

"(The election) will show whether the eurosceptic voices within Europe are on the rise or if the rise has been curtailed for the moment," said Michal Baranowski, the head of the German Marshall Fund’s Warsaw office.

Salvini, the leader of Italy’s Eurosceptic, anti-immigrant League Party and one of the two men effectively running the country (along with Movement Five Star leader Luigi Di Maio), has repeatedly criticized the EU for meddling in the domestic politics of member states and warned that Italy's is ready to leave the single currency system. The country was bullied into joining when tying its weak economy to Germany's industrial powerhouse was always going to result in an economic catastrophe for Italy and both Salvini and Di Maio are on record as saying membership of the Euro has harmed Italy.

The May elections are important for creating a "reformist" bloc that supporters hope can change the EU from within, halting the push towards political union and returning the bloc to its originally stated purpose of being simply a free trade and economic cooperation organisation of sovereign states.

Meanwhile the deluded duo, Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron set the stage for a nucleus of a European Federal Superstate by signing a “twinning” treaty to strengthen Franco-German ties, a move which has been criticised in both nations as an “erosion” of national sovereignty. It is certainly an ill advised step with Merkel, at the head of a fragile coalition, while Marcon's elitist, globalist policies have caused civil unrest in his country as Yellow Vest protestors stage disruptive protests.

The German chancellor, architech of the immigration crisis that triggered the conflict among EU member states and the resurgence of nationalism among voters, and the aloof, globalist French president who prmised he would govern "in the manner of a Roman God" are set to formalise their already close co-operation with shared defence, foreign and economic policy, and business regulations in what is seen as an attempt to create a prototype for a more politically integrated Europe, The Times reports.

As European Union members, states have already abandoned many of their sovereign rights by ditching their national currencies for the euro, agreeing to open borders within the bloc, and submitting to European courts as their highest legal arbiter.

UK academic says Integrity Initiative fatally hurt by leaks

fake news ageny damages Britain's reputation The Integrity Initiative, a UK based NGO set up to combat misinformation (a.k.a fake news) by spreading the fake news governments and supra - national bureaucracies want us to see is in trouble, in fact some of its critics say it is so damaged by leaks revealing the organisation dismissed true reports as misinformation and promoted goverment favourable narratives which were fabricated to divert and distract attention from those organisations trying to report events with integrity.

The Integrity Initiative website states:
We are a network of people and organizations from across Europe dedicated to revealing and combating propaganda and disinformation. Our broader aim is also to educate on how to spot disinformation and verify sources. This kind of work attracts the extremely hostile and aggressive attention of disinformation actors, like the Kremlin and its various proxies, so we hope you understand that our members mostly prefer to remain anonymous. The facts and information we present are all in the public domain, however, and you can investigate for yourselves. The network is coordinated from the UK. We are not a government body but we do work with government departments and agencies who share our aims.

That final sentence is pretty damning, since when did government departments have any interest in or committment to putting the truth in the public domain?

'Hate Speech' Convictions In Sweden Soar Tenfold As Government Cracks Down On Critics Of It's Loonytoons Migration Policy

far - left Swedish government bans free speech

Swede Tomas Åberg, who leads online hate speech monitoring vigilante monitoring “Näthatsgranskaren” w tax funds hich is funded by taxpayers money to carry out the task it's self - righteous supporters appointed themselves for, that of mass reporting European Swedes who write critical coments about mass immigration and its damaging effects on society on Facebook and other social media sites.

Obviously Ã…berg is pround of the fact that he is a complete and utter paskudniak (think of the absolute worst thing you can call somebody and multiply it by ten and you'll lnow what one of those is,) because he is currently boasting on Twitter that his reports to the police have resulted in almost 150 hate speech convictions (none of which, you may guess, is against a Muslim hate preacher calling on his followers to kill all non Muslims or saying European women are whores and deserve to be raped.)

Over the year, they fThe group also claims that over the year they have further “researched, collaborated, and lectured on, among others, the Council of Europe’s conference on criminal online hate speech”, they claim.

Last spring, Åberg was nominated for the “Swedish Hero” award by one of Sweden’s major newspapers Aftonbladet. The nomination was withdrawn however, when it was discovered that Åberg had tortured his own animals to death.

The authority MUCF, which finances left-wing extremist organisations such as Expo, has so far granted just over €150.000 in contributions to the Online Hate Speech Monitor. Most of the contribution from MUCF goes to paying the salary of Åberg, who runs the group with the help of a handful of far left lunatics was investigated a few years ago for extensive animal cruelty but escaped charges by avoiding being served the lawsuit.

The fact that the “Swedish Hero” event was sponsored by the pet insurance company Agria, probably had something to do with the decision to disqualify him. It seems he has given up on persecuting innocent animals and is now persecuting innocent Swedish people, on behalf of that country's authoritarian government, for trying to exercise theor right to free speech.

Brexiteer Plan to trigger GENERAL ELECTION to PUSH THROUGH no-deal exit

Our sources tell us Theresa May is under pressure to stop Remainer MPs from blocking a no-deal Brexit by holding a general election immediately after the UK is scheduled to leave the European Union.

The Prime Minister is widely expected to lose a crucial vote on her exit deal, wich containes the controversial Irish backstop and several other meaures MPs find unacceptable next week. Remainer MPs have tried to stop Brexit happening in the event of May losing that vote, but a high-stakes strategy which reportedly has the backing of Brexiteers could see her outmanoeuvre MPs demanding no-deal be taken off the table and Britain being forced to sty in the EU should her deal be rejected. The plan could see the Prime Minister use her powers to call a national vote for April 4 - just six days after Brexit Day on March 29. This would have the effect of dissolving Parliament for 17 working days before polling day, meaning no MPs would be sitting to oppose the Government’s no-deal contingency plans from coming into force, MailOnline reports.

Mrs May is said to be under huge pressure from Brexit supporting senior ministers to face down rebel MPs in her own party who will do anything, even to the extent of committing treason, to prevent Brexit. They have threatened to bring down the Government if it forges ahead with a no-deal Brexit by supporting a motion of no confidence from the opposition benches.

If employed, the risky general election plan would likely trigger a constitutional crisis but would ensure the Prime Minister makes good on her pledge to take Britain out of the EU on March 29. A Cabinet minister who supports the plan told MailOnline that the move would be a deliberate attempt to block Parliament’s role in Brexit, but added it would be worth it to make good on the 2016 referendum result.

They said: “The public are saying, ‘just f***ing get on with it’. Failing to make Brexit happen would destroy the last bit of faith in politics."

In the run-up to a general election, Parliament is dissolved while MPs return to their constituencies to campaign for their seats.

But the Government would remain in post and the civil service would continue to implement existing policy - including plans to leave without a deal on March 29.

Google is the enemy and must be destroyed, or freedom dies forever

Google Monster
Google monster" Source: Giles Nabiney via www.101touches.com/

It’s the Artificial Intelligence that manipulates people through a billion tablet computers, mobile phones, email accounts, and search engine of choice, and the mangers claim their goal is to enhance our lives by knowing us btter than we know ourselves, and nudging us with constant suggestions and warning to make better, wiser decisions than we could ever make for ourselves. "Don't be evil," the corporate motto read in the early days, although that has now been dropped because it became something of an embarrassment when people worked out it was incomplete, the full version read, "Don't be evil, that's our job."

The Google empire is anything but a force for good, As we have reported the corporation enjoys an unhealthily cosy relationship with governments and security agencies, with only the European Union, China and Russia having proved capable of standing up to it and Dave Hodges of The Common Sense Show warns if it isn't broken up soon then we can all kiss our collective future goodbye. Google plans to track every move we make through our devices, governments want to control everything we do. Naturally the two are happy to collaborate for the purpose of advancing thir agendas.

The way Google gains influence with government is through its increasingly creepy and intrusive surveillance and data gathering and analysis technologies, which are now being included in devices that are nothing to do with the internet. Soon, if Google gets its way, everyone on the planet will be monitored, tracked, and controlled by Google algorithms overseen by a technocratic elite who plan to censor all internet content and suppress all dissent throughput the liberal democracies of the developed world. Anyone who dares to challenge the establishment narrative will be identified and targeted.

Right now, more than 98 percent of mainstream media outlets the world over are controlled by just six corporations. And all of these corporations, says Hodges, are Cultural Marxists who hate the working classes, and despise everything for which, after 5000 years of civilisation, our nations have evolved to value.

Even Fox News, which presents itself as media for conservatives, is merely controlled opposition that’s funneling its viewers right into the same slaughterhouse as all of the other news outlets. Sadly, this leaves about two percent of the media, several outlets of which are now banned by Google, to tell people the truth.

“At the forefront of the propaganda that keeps America paralyzed is Google,” Hodges explains about the source of the problem. “Google has moved past Monsanto (a.k.a. Monsatan) as the most evil corporation in the world.”

Back in the summer, it was announced that Google was developing a “special” search engine for communist China that allows for only state-sanctioned “news” to show up in the results. Pretty much par for the course where the regime in China is concerned yo might think. But what mainstream media are not reporting is that Google has similar plans for the U.S.A, the European Union, Britain, Canada, Australia, Japan and anywhere else with a reasonable level of prosperity.

Organizer Of Macron’s ‘Grand Debate’ With Yellow Vests Is One Of His Elitist cronies

Gilets Jaunes protestors defy police water cannon - source: https://cdn-europe1.new2.ladmedia.fr/

One wonders whether French president Emmanuel Macron has lost the plot or whether he never knew it. As the French government stumbles from faux pas to faux pas, Macron's plan for a nationwide public debate, seeking a way of ending the months of Gilets Jaunes protests without looking weak, got off to a start typical of the Marcon administration's bumbling incompetence. As arrangements were made for launching the 'public debate' campaign, which promised to give the people a voice, the spotlight immediately fell on to the extravagant salary being paid to the government official responsible for organizing it.

Chantal Jouanno, a former sports minister in the conservative government of Nicolas Sarkozy, and the current chairwoman of the CNDP, an official body for public debates, a position which probably does not involve a heavy workload but for which receives an annual salary of €176,000 ($201,000).

The generous salary for yet another elitist fat-cat bureaucrat has outraged Gilets Jaunes leaders and supporters, set against the backdrop of their street protests against punitive taxes, virtue signalling 'green' policies and rosing costs of living. They were kicked off in November 2018 by a proposed 'green' tax on fuel but the flames of anger have been fanned by the increasingly obvious disconnect between decisions taken by financially secure public officials, and the disproportionate impact they have on ordinary citizens, such as the now-cancelled petrol tax.

Jouanno insisted she was not being paid specifically being for the “unprecedented” role of organising public discussions, but for a broader role that she assumed last year, adding that she does not negotiate her salary, which is set by the “CNDP, whoever they are.”

“I think it’s important that people can express their shock with my salary, and if they want to propose a different salary for my role, they are free to do so,” she told France Info TV.

She was also defended by her colleague, Ecology Minister Francois de Rugy, the man behind Macron's loonytoons pledge that fossil fuels would be phased out by 2030. Rugy comfirmed his committment to elitism when he said that if people wanted political posts to be “filled for free, or the minimum wage, it means society no longer recognizes that there is a scale of responsibilities.” With a self-reported salary of just €114,000 ($130,400) per annum – de Rugy must consider himself to be about a third less responsible than Jouanno.

The French president’s proposal for three months of public consultations and town-hall debates starting from January 15 was a bold gambit, but fraught with risk. As part of the process, the government is sure to receive thousands of ambitious and contradictory demands, which may be at odds with its own past tax and labor reforms, and its planned pension.'

Artificial Intelligence: Nearly nine million British jobs could be lost to AI by 2030?

Workers in retail, manufacturing and business administration most at risk

artificial intelligence
Artificial Intelligence fail (source: www.ntrguadalajara.com/ >

Nearly nine million British jobs could be destoyed over the next two decades as robots and Artificial Intelligence displace human workers. People working in retail, manufacturing and business support services are most at risk, figures released by The Department Of Work and Pensions reveal. But government ministers said regions across Britain are prepared for the challenge posed by robots and are in the process of creating jobs which are at lower risk from AI. Employment Minister Alok Sharma told The Daily Mail website MailOnline: "Every industrial revolution has eventually resulted in more jobs being created than lost in the economy."

The minister added, "Whilst jobs which can be automated are currently most at risk from the impact of robots, jobs which require more cognitive and people skills are on the increase. This means that our jobs market is absorbing the impact of robots and more people are in work than ever before. And as companies look to technology to boost productivity, this can be an opportunity for a generation of workers who, armed with new skills, can enjoy the jobs of the future. That is why I am determined to make sure we are investing in retraining opportunities, allowing people to forge new careers."

Tech enthusiasts dismiss this, saying that the next generation of robots will have human like intelligence and be capable of carrying out and task a human can. If nothing else the figures lay bare the massive change to Britain's industrial landscape which looms on the horizon thanks to AI and ought to make politicians aware they need to start planning for the social consequences of this rather than pandering to the tech corporations, most of which have proved irresponsibe and ethically dysfuntional.

While governments are offering corporate businesses tax breaks and other incentives to adopt technology to boost productivity they are not thinking about the downside. "This can be an opportunity for a generation of workers who, armed with new skills, can enjoy the jobs of the future," one politician smarmed.

As usual where "science and technology" are involved, they hype is far outstripping the reality. Artificial Intelligence is a meaningless term bandied about by tech wankers for sixty years and yet we are no nearer to creating a truly intelligent computer now than we were then. As you read this page think for a moment that a computer can be loaded with all the words on this page and detained definitions for each. And then you can enter a command to make the computer parse these words. And at the end of the task the computer will have no more idea what the page is about than a similar machine that has been wiped clean of all its data, siftware and firmware.

Prominent Hedge Fund Manager Sees Dollar Losing Reserve Currency Status

While the liberal democracies, having allowed Cultural Marxists to infiltrate government at every level and implement socially and economically disruptive policies Ray Dalio, founder of Bridgewater, the world's biggest Hedge Fund believes now is a good time to reflect on China’s progress towards its goal of replacing the USA as the world's most powerful nation.

China's growth as the size if its economy closes rapidly on that of the USA, speaks for itself, but Dalio adds:

"To have such rates of improvements in so many areas and for so many people has made it the greatest economic miracle ever."

And from what Dalio has seen, he believes that the very impressive results that the Chinese leadership and the Chinese people produced came about primarily because of the powerful combination of a) China’s opening up and reforming following an extended period of isolation that led to a fast catching up (especially in the coastal regions of China) with the advanced developed world, and b) the power of the Chinese culture and it’s related ways of operating.

Crucially, Dalio points out that, if you haven’t spent time in China, you need to get any stereotypes you might have out of your mind because it’s not how it was. This is not your father’s communism. It is “socialism with Chinese characteristics” that has been significantly and very effectively reformed, which has made it much more vital, creative, and economically free.

Dalio's 'romantic' view of a paternal China is definitely not the mainstream narrative:

"From my experiences and from what I am told by Chinese who should know, I believe Chinese leadership seeks to run the country the way they believe a good family should be run, from the top down, maintaining high standards of behavior, putting the collective interest ahead of any individual interest, with each member knowing their place and having filial respect for those in the hierarchy so the system works in an orderly way. One of China’s leaders who explained this concept to me told that the word “country” consists of two characters, state and family, which influences how they view their role in looking after their state/family.

One might say that the Chinese government is paternal. For example, it regulates what types of video games are watched by children and how many hours a day they play them. As a broad generalization, when the interest of the country (like the family) is at odds with the interest of the individual, the interest of the country (like the interest of the family) should be favored over the interest of the individual. Individuals are parts of a greater machine. As a result of this perspective, the system seeks to develop, promote and reward good character and good citizenship. For example it gives people a social credit score that rates the quality of their citizenship. And each person is expected to view themselves as parts of the greater whole.

This management from the top down includes visualizing what China 5, 10 and 20 years in the future should be like and then making and managing detailed multiyear plans to build out that vision, with the goal being to make China as great as it can be. China is run more like a giant company with many subsidiaries, some within the government’s direct control and some within its indirect control. "

But, as the fund manager notes, while Chinese culture has been evolving, it has at its most fundamental level been operating in similar ways for many hundreds or even thousands of years and the results of operating that way are knowable in an approximate way.

I have recently been researching the rise and fall of reserve currencies, which led me to study the rises and declines of the world’s most powerful countries. That led my research team and me to put together the following indices of the relative powers of leading countries since 1500. These indices are a combination of six sub-indices that measure six different types of power:

1) innovation & competitiveness,

2) domestic output,

3) share of world trade,

4) financial-center size and power,

5) military strength,

6) reserve-currency status.
...and they show when different countries reached their peaks relative to the rest of the world."

And to support his position he has put together an impressive set of statistics showing how global and regional powers from Portugal in the west and China in the east, in the late medieval era, rose to economic dominance in the west, and how as Portugal declined to be replaced by Spain, then France, then The British Empire and finally the USA all rose to dominate while they had a stable culture and strong values, and all declined when political factors undermined that cultural stability and government started to medle in private affairs.

China on the other hand, dominated in the east from around 1200 to 1900 CE only being challenged by the British and the Japanese in India from the mid nineteenth century. China's social system had stagnated through isolation, while Jaoan's had been revitalised by contact forst with Portuguese and Dutch traders and then US government and business interests.

After the communists took over China's still stagnant society the nation became even more isolated until the idealist Mao Tse Tung was replaced by equally totalitarian but more pragmatic leaders who opened up the country economically and allowed individualism and enterprise to flourish. The reformed communist party opened up the economy but maintained the cultural stability based on family, community and tradition.

And judging by Dalio's take on American culture, it is clear where he thinks this is going...

"Most fundamentally, the US is a country in which individuals, individualism, and individual property rights are perceived to be of paramount importance it is directed from the bottom up (e.g., through “one man, one vote” democracies that empower people to choose their leaders), being revolutionary is considered a good thing, and conflict is valued more than harmony.

Rather than respecting top down control most American have a strong preference to keep government from interfering with their most individual choices. Character development is a personal or family issue, not a government issue (which leaves it largely neglected in areas with broken families, especially if they’re poor).

Rather than there being a long-term top down vision for the country and a plan to achieve that vision, in the capitalist and democratic system such directions are more bottom up determined based on commercial and popularity considerations."

Thus Dalio comes to the conclusion that as the USA continues to fragment socially it's economic decline will also continue, while the Chinese, bound by their strong and stable culture, will continue to forge ahead, with the inevitable result that the US$ will lose its reserve currency status, something which is already happening as we have reported HERE.

Of course, the world's largest hedge fund manager avoids directly slamming America's 'dream' or supporting China's central planners: "I’m not saying which system is better. Each culture/system has its pros and cons that I’m not going to get into now.

I believe that the important thing to know are that while there will be trade wars and trade truces they aren’t the most important things. "

So, in summary, "it's not the economy, it's the culture stupid!"

After Triggering Mass Migration Crisis, Germany Bribing Foreigners To Leave

merkel Angela Merkel is seen by many Germans as more committed to advancing Islam in Europe than respresenting the wished of German voters. (picture source: www.tapwires.com )

Though Hausfrau - Volksfuhrer Merkel only clings to power by her fingernails as the fragile coalition she leads staggers from crisis to crisis, the damaging effects of her 'open doors' immigration policy, which triggered the European Union's mass migration crisis continue to damage Germany. It may be amusing for supporters of national sovereignty to observe her antics as, with one face the pledges support for a United Nations initiative to open all national borders top anybody wishing to cross, while with the other she tries to persuade German voters she has listened to public opinion and understands her mass immigration policy is abhorred by a majority of voters, but it is harming Germany.

The migrant crisis and its effect in destroying the Globalist and Eurocrat dream of merging the EU's member states into a single federal superstate, a policy of which Merkel has been one a leading supporter, is probably the main, no not the only, thing behind the resurgence of nationalism, and is also credited with revealing to voters just how far out of touch with ordinary people political leaders, media commentators and showbiz luvvies are.

In one of it's most bizarrre misreadings of the public mood yet, the German government has now mounted an aggressive campaign to encourage illegal migrants to leave germany by bribing them with free rent for a year in their home countries if they return.

"Your country. Your future. Now!” read billboards in seven languages, plastered in nearly 2,500 locations across 80 German cities, reports the National Post.

A series of flags corresponding with the top-destinations – Egypt, Turkey, Afghanistan, Eritrea and Russia – shapes a zigzagging road to a fictional horizon.

The “ReturningfromGermany” ad campaign is the latest tactic by the German government to boost departures and deter migration, in a reversal of Angela Merkel’s controversial welcoming policy of 2015 at the height of the Syrian refugee crisis. The campaign is the brainchild of interior minister Horst Seehofer, Merkel’s rebellious right-wing rival, who forced a coalition crisis over Germany’s asylum policy last summer. -National Post

New arrivals of undocumented, unskilled and in many cases illiterate people have arrived trying to claim asylum seeker or refugee status, (they are neither, being purely economic migrants,) have normalized since a flood of 700,000 migrants three years ago, a backlog of rejected claims has built up due to the lengthy legal process involved in deporting these people. The billboard campaign is aimed at the estimated 235,000 people who are still required to leave the country according to the interior ministry.

Most asylum seekers whose claims have been rejected can't return to their country of origin due for several reason; danger, lack of documentation or they suffer from an illness. The German government has dubbed these people "duldung," which means "tolerated."

Denied asylum seekers who don't fit either of those categories typically don't show up for their deportation. Of more than 20,000 scheduled airport repatriations in 2018, just half of them appeared to take flights back home.

Horst Seehofer, the German interior minister, aims to encourage migrants to leave with the cash-giveaway billboard campaign - offering 1,000 - 1,200 euros for a single person and 3,000 for families to provide for basic needs.

Not everyone is a fan of the new "stepping stone system," in which "you get more money if you choose to leave earlier on," according to Meiki Riebau - a lawyer and migration expert at Save the Children Germany. Riebau's organisation is still supporting Merkel's discredited "All migrsnts, refugees and asylum seekers welcome" approach to immigration control. This is going down like the proverbial lead Zeppelin with the families of women, girls and some boys who have been victims of violent sexual assaults by sexually incontinent Muslim males.

Perhaps Germany's cash incentive will turn out to be more successful than Britain's approach when Prime Minister Theresa May had vans drive through neighborhoods with billboards reading "Go home or face arrest." Her initiative resulted in just 11 voluntary departures.Obviously life in a British prison is preferable to life in a third world shithole country. British voters understandably take the view that these people are not our problem.

the daily stirrer
Migrant gang violence is a daily occurrence in Germany

German Federal Interior Minister Horst Seehofer demanded stricter controls on asylum seekers after a mob of migrants rampaged through the town of Amberg injuring a dozen peopleon Saturday.

Seehofer, leader of the Bavarian Christian Social Union (CSU), the party that is propping up Angela Merkel's fragile coalition government said that in view of the random attacks, the laws on asylum would be tightened and deportation policies would be stramloned, Kronen Zeitung reports.

“The events in Amberg have upset me a lot. These are violent excesses that we can not tolerate,” Seehofer said and added, “If asylum seekers commit violent crimes, they must leave our country. If existing laws are not enough, they need to be changed. To this end, I will make proposals to the coalition.”

The CSU along with Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and the Social Democrats form the grand coalition government, an uncomfortable alliance formed because of Merkel's determination to defy the democratic will and keep the anti-mass migration Alternative for Germany (AfD) out of government. The left - of - centre Social Democrats are traditional adversaries of Merkel's conservative CDU, which means the coalition partners have little common ground on which to build a legislative programme.

According to reports from Germany, the CSU, drifting closer to AfD positions in response to public hostility to merkel's policies, is looking to clamp down on asylum seekers who are frequent delinquents. Seehofer will seek to detain migrants who have been sentenced to probation or suspended sentences in other European Union member states.

“It can not be the case that repeat offenders take on a suspended sentence. This also applies Europe-wide,” an internal CSU paper is reported to have said likely in reference to the Strasbourg terror attacker who had been convicted of crimes in France, Germany, and Switzerland.

Seehofer also commented on the xenophobic truck attack that occurred on New Year’s Eve in Bottrop saying, “It is part of political credibility to pursue both cases with decisiveness and rigour.”

The statements of the German interior minister, who has always been far more critical of mass migration than Chancellor Merkel, bear a striking similarity to a statement issued last year by Austrian Interior Minister Herbert Kickl of the populist Freedom Party (FPÖ).

Mr Kickl also promised asylum reformhttps://www.breitbart.com/europe/2018/03/14/austrian-government-overhaul-asylum-laws-violent-migrant-attacks/ following a series of violent incidents in Vienna that included the stabbing of a family by an Afghan migrant.

De - Dollarisation: More Nations backing Away From The US$

dollar going up in flames Image source: www.footagefirm.com

In a year which saw the global geopolitical spiralling back towards cold war polarisation, with the nuclear arms race of the 1950s to 70s being replaced by the weaponisation of currencies, the global community is dividing into two camps, those nations that still support using the US$ as the principle medium for cross border trade, and those, led obviously by Russia and China (with enthusiastic support from Iran,)that favour the new methods of settling accounts through technological payment systems that need no reserve curencies, only a few trusted currencies.

The so called 'trade wars' being caused by economic sanctions and tariff disputes conflicts which are mainly being triggered by Washington as US organisations try to keep the bid for global economic hegemony (never a realistic ambition,) on track have forced countries that displeased The State department to seek alternative payment systems to those currently dominated by the US dollar.

As mentioned above, and as this page has reported many times, rather than simply dumping the dollar and adopting the UK£ or European unions Euro ( € ) and Japanese Yen, China is trying to internationalize its own currency, the yuan, which was recently included in the IMF basket of internationally traded currencies along with the currencies mentioned above. As well as launching a rival to the Petrodollar, an oil futures contract backed by gold and called rather unimaginatively, The Petroyuan, Beijing has this year, in collaboration with Russia implemented an electronic currency exchange system for settling cross border trades with international partners in the currency of the vendor's home nation.

The escalating trade conflict between the United States and China, and the imposition of economic sanctions against Beijing's biggest allies, Iran and Russia, have forced China to free itself of dollar dependency. And China's ambition of supplanting the USA as the world's biggest economy can never be achieved as long as the USA controls the reserve currency.

Russia, like China has been reducing its holdings in US Treasury Bonds at an accelerating rate for several years as well as collaborating with its ally in creating alternatives to dollar - based systems such as SWIFT ( Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication ) for settlements. President Vladimir Putin said in 2018 the US is "making a colossal strategic mistake" by "undermining confidence in the dollar."Putin has never called for restricting dollar transactions or banning the use of US currency but his government has quietly been making bilateral agreements with trading partners to use alternative system. Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov announced earlier this year that the country planned to offload its holdings of US Treasuries in favor of more secure assets, such as the ruble, the euro, gold and rare metals.

The country has been forced towards de-dollarizing the economy because of the constantly growing burden of sanctions that have been imposed since 2014 over a number of issues. Ironically these sanctions have hit US allies that trade with Russia far harder than they have hit Russia itself, while the USA sells virtually nothing to Russia and so is immune to the adverse effects of its sanctions. Thanks to Russia's development of an alternative to SWIFT, nations have a route to carrying out sanction busting trades that are invisible to the US security agencies.

Moscow has managed to partially remove the dollar from its export trade, signing currency-swap agreements with countries including China, India, Iran, Turkey, Pakistan, Kazakhstan and Australia. It is widely understood the EU has agreed that its member states can use alternatives to dollar denominated systems though no details of any that have are yet known. Russia has recently formally proposed a system using the euro instead of the US dollar in trade with European Union member states.

Sanctions have forced the Iranian government to seek alternative to the US dollar in payment for its oil exports. So ffar it has concluded deals for settlement of oil trades with India using the Indian rupee and with Pakistan using the UK£. It also negotiated a barter deal with neighboring Iraq. The partners are also planning to use the Iraqi dinar for mutual transactions to reduce reliance on the US dollar amid banking problems connected to US sanctions.

Late in 2018 Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced a new policy of switching to non-dollar trading with his country's international partners. Turkey's leader also announced that Ankara is preparing to conduct trade through national currencies with China, Russia and Ukraine. It already trades with Eurozone member nations in Euros. Turkey has also discussed replacing the US dollar with national currencies in trade (mainly oil) transactions with Iran.

Relations between the USA and Ankara have been deteriorating for two years. Aware (and who isn't) of the CIA's involvement in the ousting of a democratically elected pro - Moscow government in Ukraine, since the failed military coup against him in 2016 President Erdogan has suspected Washington was behind the bid to topple his regime. Erdogan has also directly accused Washington of harboring exiled cleric Fethullah Gulen, whom Ankara blames for masterminding the coup.

The European Union has discussed switching payments on trades with Iran from the US dollar to the Euro after Washington threatened to sanction European firms trading with or working on projects in Iran, according to reports. This has become a realistic possibility as the US, having sanctioined a nation or organisation, insists that everybody else obeys those sanctions. A way around that will help EU firms to retain one of the world's largest markets, which was opened for trade after the historic nuclear deal signed by Tehran and the P5+1 powers (China, France, Russia, UK, US, plus Germany) in June 2015.

India, with the world's sixth-largest economy, and growing rapidly, is one of the biggest merchandise importers and exporters. As a nation with an economy dependent on trade, the country is more vulnerable than most to geopolitical conflicts and as a major trading partner of both Russia and China, is significantly impacted by economic sanctions that curtail its ability to trade. Thus the arrogant practice of the USA in applying sanctions to those nations which trade with counties it has sanctioned is particularly tough on India as well as being one of the policies that made Washington unpopular among emerging economies that trade with Russia, Iran and China.

Earlier this year, Delhi switched to ruble payments on supplies of Russian S-400 air-defense systems as a result of US economic penalties introduced against nations that trade with Moscow. The country was also obliged to switch to the rupee in purchases of Iranian crude after Washington reinstituted sanctions against Tehran. In December, India and the United Arab Emirates sealed a currency-swap agreement to boost trade and investment without the involvement of a third currency.

Taking into account that India is the third-largest country by purchasing power parity, steps of this kind could considerably diminish the role of the greenback in global trading.

Numerous other nations, large and small, are also making moves to render their international trade immune to US trade wars and sanctions. Australia, Brazil, Japan, South Africa, Nigeria, Thailand, Philippines, Egypt, Nigeria and Malaysia are all known to have been involved in non - dollar international trades and it is likely many more have too. Many people in the USA, on reading this and similar reports elsewhere, will immediately blame Donald Trump, but the problems began long before he burst on the political scene. If fact no particular blame can be attached to any particular president or administration.

The problem comes from the Deep State, Military / Industrial Complex, call it what you will, and the faceless manipulators in Washington that have based US foreign policy on military intervention in nations that tried to go their own way. Thus the US is seen as having abused is position as the holder of the reserve currency to impose policy on sovereign nations. There was bound to be a backlash sometime. 2018 looks like the year that backlash got serious.

Russia throws down the gauntlet: energy supply to Europe cut off; petrodollar abandoned as currency war escalates
There are some big moves taking place on the global stage that you need to know about, as this could all lead to World War III.

Japanese researchers develop a prototype humandroid to replace human labourers

humanoid robot - looks rather clumsy
Image source: Natural News

There's no doubt about it, scientidts are a creepy - weird, dangerously obsessive bunch of wankers. They are so disgusted by their own humanity (well it just isn't scientific enough for them,) they would rather be machines than people. But to stop them feeling like emotionally crippled losers because of their machine - like behaviour, they want to replace all the rest of us with machines. Now I can understand why scientists want to develop sex robots although I think it's well out of order when they start saying in future we will all have sex robots as our lovers. Just because scientists find it easier to have a meaningful relationship with a wank machine does not mean we all will.

A policy of strictly controlloing immigration, astronomical housing costs and high taxation, high presure education and social conditioning to seek status and success in Japan have led to a disastrously low birth rate and labour shortages in some vital areas. These have forced businesses, government and private individuals to resort to using robots for its labor needs. An article on Geek.com reports that researchers are developing a humanoid robot that will replace human workers in the construction industry.

Created by the Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), the HRP-5P construction robot is six feet tall and vaguely resembles one of those tin cans with smiley faces that appeared in 1950s sci-fi movies, the ones that always rebel and try to murder their human masters.

As the name implies, HRP-5P is the fifth model of an increasingly long line of androids. The harbinger of the future robot economy of Japan was HRP-1, which first debuted in 1998.

While HRP-5P is the latest and most advanced unit, the earlier incarnations are still being used. The older HRP-2 Reinforcement was upgraded before serving as the AIST representative at the 2015 DARPA Robotics challenge, an international competition where autonomous robots sought to accomplish various tasks such as driving cars.

AIST has spent 20 years working on developing robots capabilities to a level which enables them to accomplish a wide variety of tasks with minimal human control. Some of the HRP series’ most significant achievements involve crossing rough terrain and adjusting valves with precision.

However, while the humanoid robots could pull off delicate tasks with ease, they did not possess the physical capability of human workers when it came to heavy duty work. The earlier models were unable to replicate truly human movement in complex environments such as construction sites.

The new model does not initially look impressive. It moves and works quite slowly, especially when compared to a human. However, its artificial intelligence is analytical and rigorous. This electronic brain allows it to take full advantage of its extremely flexible joints, which can match or exceed the movement range of a human.

It is also immune to the physical exhaustion and emotional problems that plague human workers. So it will be able to work all day and all night, long after the humans have headed home to sleep.

But what happens when the batteries run low and there is no human around to plug in its charger?

Marine Le Pen has Massive Lead Over Failing Macron in European Elections!!!

Anti-EU feelings have been steadily growing across European Union member states for several years as readers of this news site will be aware. The pusback against federalism and Brissels authoritarianism has now gathered such momentum, top Eurocrats face are in a constant state of panic as they face Yellow Vests protets spreading out from France where they originated, criticism from populist parties in core member states such as Germany and Italy, and setback after setback in elections.

Chancellor Merkel suffered a significant defeat at the hand of far-right party Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) while Italy joined Hungary, Poland and Slovakia after the eurosceptic Lega-Movimento 5 Stelle (M5S) coalition came to power in June and Sweden has been without a functioning government since the Sweden Democrats prevented either traditiona group in Swedish politics, left or centre, from gaining enough support to form a government.

The EU tried to impose austerity measures on Italy after the Lega / Five Star coalition presented a Eurozone rule busting budget, triggering a bitter dispute over country's 2019 budget which threatened the stability of the union. But in spite of the blows Brussels suffered over the past two years, Prof Hans Vollaard, a leading expert on EU politics suggested the rise of anti-EU movements in the bloc could potentially "strengthen" the European Union.

Now that really does sound like desperation by an establishment clueless as to how they can give the impression they are not crapping themselves.

Jim Shields, politics professor at the University of Warwick, dismissed Vollard's suggestion, saying 2018 has been a “dismal” year for the EU, triggered by the failure of Mr Macron and the humiliation of Hausfrau - Volksfuhrer Merkel who now clings to power as head of a minority government, as well as the formation of an “anti-EU” governments across the bloc.

He said: "Barely 18 months ago, Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel seemed poised to breathe new vigour into the European project; now Merkel has been dethroned while Macron has been brought low by violent protests and crashing approval ratings.

“A virulently anti-EU party has been elected to government in Italy, another anti-EU party has become a force in Germany, yet another now co-governs Austria, Marine Le Pen is back on her game in France, and Britain grinds each day closer to the EU exit.”

Hungary too, which has long been a thorn in the side of EU bosses with the country’s prime minister Viktor Orban leading Eastern Europe’s pushback, is at loggerheads with Brussels.

Mr Orban is running for reelection once again and his campaign has boasted plenty of anti-EU rhetoric, mainly criticising the bloc’s immigration policy. In March, he declared “Brussels is not defending Europe and it is not halting immigration” as he addressed a crowd for the 170th anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution.

Poland's right-wing government have been in confrontatoion with the EU over who governs Poland, the elected government or the Brussels bureaucracy, after making sweeping changes to the legal systems, which critics say has put judges under the control of the ruling Law and Justice party while supporters say that's better than them being under the conrol of unelected bureaucrats.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY

Billionaire Investor Erik Prince Launches Fund For Electric Car Metals

cobalt mining congo
Cobalt mining in Congo, child labour is common and slave labour possible (western companies contract out work to local agents,), workers rights and safety regulations are non existent. (Source: www.trwn.org/wp-content/ )

A couple of weeks before the turn of the year I wrote a comment under an article singing the praises of electric and hybrid cars, the usual 'clean, green, sustainable, transport of the furure spiel. Now I did not get into the usual criticisms, poor range, length of time to recharge, massive upgrades to the electricity distribution system to support 'fast chargers' whichh are still painfully slow compared with pumps that punp liquid. Nor did I point out the technical problems that will beset these vehicles when they start to be used outside towns and away from the coastal strip. In short, they don't do hills. OK I know some plank is going to say "Ah but regenerative braking systems mean they generate electricity when going down hills," and OK that is true, but what is generated going down is a tiny fraction of what is used to haul car, driver, passengers and battery pack up.

Instead of all that I settled for pointing out that as well as electricity which is mostly generated by coal, other finite resources are essential to the manugacture of these electric vehicles which some stupid politicians say will totally replace fossil fuelled cars and trucks by 2040, (yes I might be talking about you Monsieur Macron you idioty, or you Mr. Treudeau, you plonker.) There are currently an estimated 1.4 billion cars and light goods vehicles on the road, and there is not enough lithium in reserve stocks to make battery packs for a tenth of that number. And then there is cobalt, needed in far smaller quantities but a far less plentiful resource and most of the known reserves are controlled by China. And if they dominate the maket in a resource the west needs they ain't going to be giving the stuff away.

Naturally I was mocked and ridiculed for going against the offiocial narrative that electric will smoothly replace gasoline over the next couple of decades. Fortunately I don't take any more notice of the voices that bounce around the liberal echo chamber of the internet than I do of politicians who are trying to buy your vote so they can use it in the cause of enriching their paymasters, or of mainstream media, where the propaganda of the establishment is endlessly parrotted.

It was of course gratifying to learn that people who matter agree with me. Today the Financial Times welcomed the New Year with a report that Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater, the private security giant intends to launch a $500m investment fund to capitalize on the rush to secure investments in the metals required for batteries that power electric cars.

Prince, an adviser to president Trump and brother of White House officia Betsy DeVos told the FT, "For all the talk of our virtual world, the innovation, you can’t build those vehicles without minerals that come from generally weird, hard-to-access places."

He's correct of course, and the more the world comes to rely on electronic technology, particularly mobile technologies, the more competition there will be for these finite resources. As I wrote back in 2010, for years due to pressure from the greey - weeny, weirdie - beardie faction, because the mining and refining of these rare earth metals is a filthy and energy intensive process, the developed nations have been handing control of such vital resources to nations with are not exactly friendly to our governments or way of life.

Mining companies in China, Russia, India, Brazil and Australia have been investing billions into these essential metals as the electric vehicle industry expands, which include cobalt, neodymium, gold, tellurium and terbium as well as copper and lithium.

One of the largest investors has been China, with Chinese companies buying stakes in deposits in the Democratic Republic of Congo and in Chile this year. Mr Prince also runs a Hong Kong-listed security and logistics company that is backed by China’s state-owned Citic Group. -Financial Times

Prince's new fund will operate in exploration and securing rights to as yet unknown deposits before selling them on to larger mining companies, and, Prince told the FT, will be looking to cash in its investments and devote the revenue to new projects within four or five years. his experience in providing private armies to secure assets in well known trouble spots should prove invaluable.

It is well known that Chinese companies have little interest in speculative exploration, which leads Prince believe creates a gap in the supply chain he hopes to fill."

More than 60 percent for the world's cobalt supply originates from the Democratic Republic of Congo, a nation plagues by tribal and political conflicts which has scared off western investment and has opened the door for Chinese companies including Jinchuan Group and China Molybdenum to pour billions into developing the sites. Apart from high altitude salt lakes in Chile, the onlt other known area from which lithium is easily extractable is Afghanistan, not the easiest place for foreign interests to operate.

Prince gained notoriety as the founder of Blackwater - the world's most famous private military contractor which has been targeted with lawsuits alleging civilian deaths in Iraq, including a 2007 incident in Nisour Square, Baghdad, where 17 civilians were killed and 20 injured after Blackwater guards claim their convoy was ambushed. And FBI investigation concluded that at least 14 of the 17 Iraqis were shot without cause.

Since selling Backwater in 2010, Prince has been at the helm of Frontier Services Group, which provides logistics support and security services to companies operating in politically unstable countries. They have provided anti-piracy operations to Somalia and security for oil companies operating in strife - torn South Sudan. Prince himself is a former US Navy SEAL, now resident in Abu Dhabi, his long established business links with China will certainly give him a head start in this new venture. A bauxite (aluminium ore,) mine in Guinea this year secured a contract to supply Chinese state - owned aluminium smelter with ore.

Hailed as a super battery, a mjor advance in battery technology that will change the world to store power for a household, it turns out to be nothing more than a streamined car battery. It will run the average home for about 2 hours.

Flight From FreedomFleeing from freedom seems like a contradiction, after all we usually asdsiciate flight with escaping from captivity. In this first part of Existentialism for Beginners however the author identifies a human instinct that predisposes us to seek illusory safety by conforming and being part of the crowd rather than embarking on the lonely life of the free thinker, the person who truly makes their own decisions and follows their own path.

Vertical Farming: The Looniest Idea Yet For Saving The PlanetClimate Science is a strange discipline. Part trainspotting, part trekkie convention going, it combines an almost autistic obession with collcting details, a very autistic obsession with focusing on a single theme and a fantasist's capacity for self deception and a taste for mutual masturbation. The latest loonytoons idea for saving the planet involves turning skyscraper buildings into farms growing food for urban populations. Apart from increasing the cost of food by 1000% and increasing rather than reducing the carbon footprint of food production the idea is so insane noboy could ever take it seriously. Nobody that is except scientists, politicians, academics and the media.

The Futility Of Wind Farms.In some ways the Conservative / Liberal Democrat coalition has made quite a good start in government. One area they are set to fail badly however is energy. Driven by politically correct thinking the coalition are set to follow Labour down the road that goes through wind power and eventually leads nowhere. Wind turbines look fine on paper. If they generate at their optimum output for 365 days a year the contribution to energy needs looks like a viable business proposition. The problem is due to the limitations of the technology and the vagaries of the weather wind farms are doing well if they operate at a quarter of their potential output.

No-deal Brexit ferry company owns no ships and has never run Channel service

Concerns raised over Seaborne Freight, which won a £13.8m contract to operate a Ramsgate to Ostend route

It seem from a report in today's Guardian that Project Fear, the effort by pro-EU politicians, media pundits and business people to derail Brexit is collaborating with Project Profiteer to make sure whether we go for 'no deal,' Theresa May's deal or no Brexit, british taxpayers get shafted by the money grabbing global corporations.

3094162_0f2943c8

Ramsgate Ferry Port - not many ships or lorries around, maybe its only used by ghost companies ( Picture: http://s0.geograph.org.uk/geophotos/ ) One of the companies contracted by the government's Ministry of Brexit Panic to run ferries in the event of a no-deal Brexit does not currently own any ships, has never operated a ferry service or shipping line and is not planning to do so until close to the UK’s scheduled departure date from the European Union, it has emerged. Concerns have been raised about Seaborne Freight, which despite it's not being in a position to provide any service was awarded a £13.8m contract to operate freight ferries from Ramsgate to the Belgian port of Ostend if the UK leaves the EU without a deal, after a councillor for the Kent town queried whether it would be possible to set up the new service by the scheduled Brexit date. There are grounds for looking closely into this company and who benefits from its profits. It would not surprise us if Prime Minister Theresa May and Chancellor Phil (spreadsheet) Hammond are among the main shareholders. Amid all the Project Fear panic about 'no deal' nobody is asking why we will need more ships. There will not be any significant increase in cross channel trade after Brexit, in fact the Remainers would like us to believe trade will cease completely. The seaborne contract is one of three agreements worth a total of £107.7m signed by the government without a tendering process (how dodgy is that?) to help ease “severe congestion” at Dover by securing extra lorry capacity.

Ramsgate Ferry Port - not many ships or lorries around, maybe its only used by ghost companies ( Picture: http://s0.geograph.org.uk/geophotos/ )

One of the companies contracted by the government's Ministry of Brexit Panic to run ferries in the event of a no-deal Brexit does not currently own any ships, has never operated a ferry service or shipping line and is not planning to do so until close to the UK’s scheduled departure date from the European Union, it has emerged.

Concerns have been raised about Seaborne Freight, which despite it's not being in a position to provide any service was awarded a £13.8m contract to operate freight ferries from Ramsgate to the Belgian port of Ostend if the UK leaves the EU without a deal, after a councillor for the Kent town queried whether it would be possible to set up the new service by the scheduled Brexit date.

There are grounds for looking closely into this company and who benefits from its profits. It would not surprise us if Prime Minister Theresa May and Chancellor Phil (spreadsheet) Hammond are among the main shareholders. Amid all the Project Fear panic about 'no deal' nobody is asking why we will need more ships. There will not be any significant increase in cross channel trade after Brexit, in fact the Remainers would like us to believe trade will cease completely.

The seaborne contract is one of three agreements worth a total of £107.7m signed by the government without a tendering process (how dodgy is that?) to help ease “severe congestion” at Dover by securing extra lorry capacity.

Seaborne has published plans to operate freight ferries from Ramsgate from late March, beginning with two ships and increasing to four by the end of the summer. Without any ships this is oing to be quite difficult as some people have noted.

Paul Messenger, a Conservative county councillor for Ramsgate, questioned whether the government had run proper checks on the firm's financial stability, management experience, and fitness to fulfill the contract, telling the BBC: “It has no ships and no trading history so how can due diligence be done? Why choose a company that never moved a single truck in their entire history and give them £14m? I don’t understand the logic of that.”

Seaborne was established two years ago and has been in negotiations about running freight ferries between Ramsgate and Ostend, but no services are currently running. Narrow berths in the port mean there are few suitable commercial vessels available.

There are two options here. Either the whole thing is a typical civil service fuck up or somebody has trousered £13.8 million of taxpayers money without ever intending to do anything to earn it.

Leaked Documents Reveal Facebook's Biased, Convoluted Censorship Policies

Since the 2016 US Presidential election, when the phrase 'fake news' entered the vernacular, Facebook has employed thousands of human moderators tasked with identifying what is and is not acceptable content to be posted on the censorious social media website. These humans were not employed to replace the 'Artificial Intelligence' automated moderation system the nerdocracy that runs Facebook had previously relied on, but to make the judgements 'Artificial Intelligence' cannot (because far from being intelligent, it is as abjectly effing stupid as the nerds that probram the algorithms. It has come to light in leaked documents obtained by The New York Times that Facebook's human moderators are doing a lousy job, promoting fake news while censoring truthful reports, because they have been relying on outdated, inaccurate and biased "maze of PowerPoint slides" to police global political speech, according to the trove of 1,400 internal documents inspected and reported on by The New York Times.

Moderators who have worked for Facebook admit they often rely on Google Translate to read posts, and are put under pressure to achieve targets by making decisions on the acceptability of content within a matter of seconds, just as call centre customer service agents are required to clear down calls quickly, according to the report.

The guidelines for moderators, reviewed every other Tuesday morning by "several dozen Facebook employees who gather over breakfast," according to Facebook public relations propaganda, areare filled with "numerous gaps, baises and outright errors," according to the Times.

Moderators were once told, for example, to remove fund-raising appeals for volcano victims in Indonesia because a co-sponsor of the drive was on Facebook’s internal list of banned groups. In Myanmar, a paperwork error allowed a prominent extremist group, accused of fomenting genocide, to stay on the platform for months. In India, moderators were mistakenly told to flag for possible removal comments critical of religion. -NYT
The guidelines, set by "mostly young engineers and lawyers," must be interpreted by Facebook's fleet of mostly outsourced moderators which employ largely unskilled workers, "many hired out of call centers."

(Illegal migrants working on zero hours contracts perhaps? - editor)

Moderators have expressed frustration at rules they say don’t always make sense and sometimes require them to leave up posts they fear could lead to violence. “You feel like you killed someone by not acting,” one said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because he had signed a nondisclosure agreement. -NYT
According to Facebook executives, they are working diligently to rid the platform of "dangerous" content.

"It’s not our place to correct people’s speech, but we do want to enforce our community standards on our platform," said Facebook senior News Feed engineer. "When you’re in our community, we want to make sure that we’re balancing freedom of expression and safety."

The company's head of global policy management, Monika Bickert, meanwhile, said that the company's primary goal was to prevent harm - though perfection "is not possible."

"We have billions of posts every day, we’re identifying more and more potential violations using our technical systems," said Bickert. "At that scale, even if you’re 99 percent accurate, you’re going

to have a lot of mistakes."

Indeed it is not, but can an organisations whose senior management have been only too willing to use the company's position to promote the left wing, globalist causes they support, ever be trusted toensure balanced treatment for political and social commentary which challenges the idea and values their corporate leaders want to impose on the world?

And since Facebook's set of rules are more or less a patchwork of Excel spreadsheets and unorganized PowerPoint presentations, there is no single master file or reference guide. ing to the Times, "Moderators must sort a post into one of three “tiers” of severity. They must bear in mind lists like the six “designated dehumanizing comparisons,” among them comparing Jews to rats." Facebook insists the files are only for training, but moderators say they are used as day-to-day reference materials.

One document sets out several rules just to determine when a word like “martyr” or “jihad” indicates pro-terrorism speech. Another describes when discussion of a barred group should be forbidden. Words like “brother” or “comrade” probably cross the line. So do any of a dozen emojis. -NYT

"There’s a real tension here between wanting to have nuances to account for every situation, and wanting to have a set of policies we can enforce accurately and we can explain cleanly," said Bickert, who added "We’re not drawing these lines in a vacuum."

The Times concludes that entrusing to Facebook the task of policing of what they consider extremism or disinformation intrudes into sensitive political matters worldwide - "sometimes clumsily."

"Facebook’s role has become so hegemonic, so monopolistic, that it has become a force unto itself," said Balkans expert Jasmin Mujanovic. "No one entity, especially not a for-profit venture like Facebook, should have that kind of power to influence public debate and policy."

SCROLLING DIVISION FOR LINKS
German politician calls on facebook to abolish free speech
A German politician has given the clearest indication yet that the political elites of the free world are ideologically much closer to Adolf Hitler's National Socialists than the social liberalism they claim to support. Free speech is the basis of all liberal democracy. Heiko Maas, the German justice minister has has written to the Facebook it removes “xenophobic and racist” anti-migrant posts from its website and apps., has written to the company to demand an urgent review of its policy over hate messages.

Free Speech Is Being Murdered By The Media And Left Wing Authoritarianism
Without free speech there is no democracy. Without democracy there is no freedom. But all over the developed world free speech is under attack from politically correct politics. It is time to start resisting, do not believe the propaganda published by mainstream media, question everything and make up your own mind. as The Buddha said, "Believe nothing you read or are told unless it agrees with your own experience and common sense."

Obama administration ‘blocking' information from the press
Uncovering information that should be available to the public has become increasingly difficult under the presidency of Barack Obama, an Associated Press bureau chief says.

Western Hypocrisy In Reporting News about Ukraine And Russia
The opening paragraph of a CNN report on the latest developments in the crisis in Ukraine illusrate perfectly the hypocrisy of Western media in the way they cast Russia as the danger to world peace and America as bringer of freedom and democracy.

Centralized power - the worst of all possible worlds
The centralization of power over the past few decades in nations of the developed world has led to the evolution of a sociopathic managerial class formed mainly from the old petite bourgoisie who have now gravitted to public sector careers where their delusions of social status and the unaccountability of office lead them to abuse such power as they have.

Are privacy campaigners right to be worried about intrustive internet technology and the massive databases that log our behaviour and parse the data for patters that enable us to be targeted for advertising?

So Who Is Anti - science? Those Who Question Climate Change Or Those Who Would Abolish Free Speech
It was looking as if the global warming scare was dead, then that Nazi shit Barack Obama, seeing his dream of being President Of The World slipping away, gave his science whores enough money to enable them to kick some life back into it. Now the "science" lobby, unable to put together an convinging argument against their challengers are demanding the abolition of free speech.

Their goal is absolute power and they know that while the right of free speech, the free press and free access to information exist they cannot succeed.

How academic debate is suppressed on science topics like Climate Change, GMOs, Pesticides and Toxicity of medicines
Intellectual intolerance and the supposed superiority of the scientific education have led not just to the politiciisation of science but to it's being seduced by corporate money and political power. Science was ever fascism's whore of course and the egos of scientists are easily bought. This has led to a very unhealthy emergence of dogmas and orthodoxies and an intolerance of the dissent that is essential if scientific research is to have any credibility.

Phobophobia - Fear Of Being called Phobic?
Homophobia is not fear of homosexuals but fear of thec same thing which does not make sense.

Counter-Terrorism Police Brought in to Protect Butchers from Militant Vegans

by Arthur Kinnell

vegan activists - protesting is OK, when they start threatening people we should throw burgers at them
Vegan activists - protesting is OK, when they start threatening people we should throw burgers at them

British counter-terror police have been deployed to protecting meat industry workers as vegan activists have become move violent in their protests. It is surprising (not!) that the predominantly left wing vegan activists, while having threatened Europeans who work in the meat industry have as yet had nothing to say about the barbaric methods of slaughter used in halal abbatoirs by Muslim meat businesses.

Workers at abattoirs, farms, and meat-packing factories have been under increasing threat by far-left animal rights campaigners, with the British Poultry Council and the National Pig Association being just two of the bodies seeking protection through the counter-terrorism force, reports the Mail on Sunday.

In one historic case reported by Channel 4 Dispatches, racist, jew - hating, militant vegan group SAVE attacked a Jewish kosher abattoir in east London two years ago, breaking into the building and daubing anti-Semitic slogans on the wall, with one protester yelling, “It’s a holocaust. You Nazis!”

The report of meat producers engaging counter-terror police comes after Waitrose Food magazine editor William Sitwell was forced to resign over a joke about vegans, and found himself subjected to vitriol and threats of violence against him and his family.

Mr Sitwell told the Mail on Sunday, “There were threats to rape my wife, tie her up, and cut off her genitals.”

Organised vegan activists have been calling for their lifestyle to be given the same “protected characteristic” status as race, religion, sexuality, gender, and disability, under discrimination laws, which would make it a criminal offence to mock or discriminate against vegans. Well, at least it's honest of them to identify themselves as similar to all the nutters, perverts, retards and weirdos who demand special treatment.

The calls followed the case of Jordi Casamitjana in early December, who took his discrimination claim to the High Court after alleging that his firing from the League Against Cruel Sports was due to discrimination against his lifestyle. We don't suppose it occurred to him that he may have been fired for being a boring, self righteous cunt.

Unfortunately for vegan political activists this kind of attempt to bully people into accepting the crakpot demands of a bunch of humanity hating psychopaths only reinforces the feeling among sane people that vegans are nutters who are best ignored until we have a government with the testicular fortitude to lock the buggers up.

Brexiteer DESTROYS BBC panel of Remainers as they try to mock 'Brexit disaster'

A newspaper columnist who backs Brexit excoriated a BBC panel of the usual hand - picked, "right - on" cultural Marxist, Remainer correspondents in an astonishing outburst after row the ignorant, ill informed leftie bullies mocked for defending the referendum decision.

An on-air row erupted when Brexit-backing Telegraph columnist Janet Daly defended the decision to leave the EU to the fury and disbelief of Remain-supporting journalists who immediately resorted to the usual debating tactic of the left, that of trying to shout down anyone who disagrees with them. Daley furiously defended Brexit - claiming, quite justifiably acording to official fogures, that “Britain was booming” while “the EU is in decline”. The row became so intense that BBC anchor Shaun Ley had to intervene.

Daley told BBC Dateline: “We are definitely going to leave. There is no question about that.

“But, there is no majority in Parliament for a no deal Brexit so there will be some words agreed, at the very last moment, the last second possible.

“We will eventually arrive at what can be called an exit from the EU.”

Daley was met with huge roars of ridiculing laughter when she claimed that the EU was trying to ruin the UK economically.

Fellow correspondent Abdel Barry Atwan, misogyinistic on religious grounds as well as being an ignorant, ill - mannered leftie twat, interrupted Daley to mock her defence of Brexit.

Atwan said: “I believe the saga in the UK: the constitutional crisis, the bad economy, the collapse of the stock market - thousand points down in the last six months. (This is one of those misleading truths, until a recent world wide correction stocks had become overvalued globallly due to algorithm driven trading.)

"I believe all of that will make Europe strong. The alternative is to stick together." With these words the man proved his is an idiot. How will it make Europe strong? he didn't say.

Daley hit back: "Growth in the EU is declining, they have serious economic problems, and Italy is threatening to pull the plug on the whole eurozone. The economy in Britain is booming. We have the biggest high-tech industry. We have the lowest level of unemployment in history." Well somrething of an exaggeration to say 'booming' perhaps, but it's doing better than any EU member including Germany.

Atwan became increasingly frustrated with Daley, telling her that Brexit was “a disaster” though he seemed unable to explain why. The Brexiteer pointed out that the devalued pound helped Britain’s export market this year, before adding: “You have to understand economic truths!”

Daley also dismissed the potential for second referendum, claiming it was a “non-starter”.


Whistleblower: UK Prepared for ‘No Deal’ Brexit, Scare Stories ‘Absolutely Untrue’

leave means leave
No deal? Leave means leave (Picture: Breitbart )

We did tell you the Remainers and EU fanboys were scaremongering. Now it's official - well sort of ...

A senior civil servant has lifted the lid on a Remainer conspiracy behind Project Fear , revealing that the country is actually well-prepared for a “No Deal” Brexit and scare stories about Britain “crashing out” into “chaos and doom” are “absolutely untrue”. So it's time we were rid of that weird looking gobshite Hammond and the little Canuk cunt and the Bank Of England, Carney.

The anonymous official, who has been involved in Britain’s preparations for a Brexit on World Trade Organization (WTO) terms — the so-called “No Deal” scenario — revealed in a Telegraph article that there are “hundreds” of plans in place to ensure that outlandish threats of food, water, and medicine shortages will not be realised, and that “it is purely a political decision not to make this clear to the public and nervous backbench MPs”.

“Project Fear Mark (I think) III… claims that we will all ‘crash out’ over the white cliffs of Dover into the Channel at 11 p.m. on 29 March 2019 and wake up to certain chaos and doom… [I]t is absolutely untrue, as anyone who, like me, has been involved in Brexit work for the past two-and-a-half years in Whitehall will tell you,” he scoffed.

Well this blog has been telling you since 2016 that Remainers were a bunch of neo-con globalist authoritarians who would have trashed our country completely rather than give up the dream of a totalitarian world government - towards which a federal Europe was a vital step.

EU Refuses to Block Eurozone Integration to Reach Agreement With UK Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann said at the E?U summit on British membership terms that the European Union wants to reach an agreement with the United Kingdom, but it is not prepared to compromise the banking union (financial integration) or the further integration of monetary union (UK being forced to abandon the pound join the Euro?) to achieve this goal.

Cameron's EU Deal Worthless. It Can Be Vetoed In European Parliament? Opinion polls show Britain is evenly divided on the question of whether to leave or remain in the EU, though it has been suggested up to 10 million other voters, many of them women, have yet to make a decision. How they cast their vote will shape the future of the world’s fifth largest economy and the EU itself. But what is really at stake is more important than economics ...

EU Officials Say Europe Is "Going Down The Drain Common sense could not slow the charge of politically correct globalist politiciand towards merging the 28 member states of the European Union into a single federal entity, but their attempt to destroy democracy by flooding the continent with illiterate third world peasants has finally awoken the spirits of Europe's ancient nations.

EU Report Reveals Continent Being Changed By Migration While political leaders and the mass media constantly preach of the economic benefits and cultural enrichment that sping from mass immigration,EU Report Reveals Continent Being Changed By Migration just a few days ago we reported a study that found the economic benefits are a myth and today a report published by the EUs in house statistical bureau reveals immigrants have an adverse effect socially and culturally.

Major blow for Brexit campaign as US rules out UK-only trade deal? Michael Froman, the US Trade Representative, said America is “not in the market” for trade deals with individual states and would only consider free trade agreements with blocs of nations. "I think it's absolutely clear that Britain has a greater voice at the trade table being part of the EU, being part of a larger economic entity," Mr Froman told Reuters.

Security Expert: Sweden is “On the Way to Civil War”

International security consultant Olle Fjordgren has issued a stark warning that his native Sweden is “on the way to civil war” as a result of the problems caused by mass immigration, a soft justice system that often seems to blame victims of crime as much as the prepetrators, and inability to tackle lawlessness among immigrants in the country’s expanding “no go zones” where crime is rampant.

In an interview with the Ingrid & Maria news blog, Fjordgren, who has acted as a security advisor to the governments of Pakistan, Ethiopia and Mongolia, said, “We have basically given up and the criminals have seized power. Right now we have nothing to oppose and I can’t see that we could reverse the development.”

Describing Sweden as a “freight train heading for a rock wall,” Fjordgren added that the unwillingness in the political establishment to admit how bad things have become in Sweden's towns and cities where the predominantly Muslim migrant ghettos have been allowed to form, in addition to the way people who try to highlight that the problems related to migrants who refuse to integrate or respect Swedish law and values rountinely being labeled “racist,” means that Sweden is now close to becoming a “failed state”.

Citing Lebanon as an example of what happens to a society when integration fails and different ethnic and criminal gangs engage in turf wars, Fjordgren sees “only one possible development” in Sweden’s future – a “civil war”. This is in part because while police are still operating by old, outdated rules, criminals have become more ruthless and play by completely different rules.

Fjordgren says the only way to turn things round now would be for Sweden to adopt a New York City-style zero tolerance policy on crime, although given the country’s obsessibe political correctness and progressive approach to justice which often results in migrants found guilty of rape or murder being allowed to walk free because, "We must accept there are different standards in their culture;" this seems highly unlikely.

“The judiciary must ensure that these dangerous people are incapacitated and removed from the streets,” he argues.

Sweden’s growing crime problem has been exacerbated by the country opening its borders to millions of migrants and allowing people from the third worlds most lawless shitholes to flood into their country without even the most basic identity checks being applied in recent years.

As a Spectator study reported, “Murder is up 40 per cent since 2012; the number of gun homicides has more than doubled in ten years. Compared with Britain, it is five times more common for young men in Sweden to be shot and killed.”

Grenade attacks, mass torching of vehicles and other crimes are also on the rise.

Figures released in August found that 58 per cent of convicted rapists and 85 per cent of all convicted assault rapists in Sweden were born outside of Europe.

In cases where the victim did not know the attacker, the proportion of foreign offenders was more than 80 per cent. Nearly 40 per cent of the convicted rapists are from the Middle East or from Africa.

As Government Prepares For No Deal Brexit Project Fear Scaremongers Go Into Overdrive

With less than 100 days to go to Brexit day, and no 'deal' in in sight betwen thye United Kingdom and the EU, both the British government and the European Union commission are preparing for a hard Brexit. Meanwhile the ardent Remainers in government, business and the media are ramping up the scaremongering in a last ditch effort to stop Brexit happening.

No-deal would leave ‘Britain like MOROCCO’ warns EU budget chief

EUROPEAN Commissioner Günther Oettinger incredibly believes Parliament could still back Prime Minister Theresa May’s much-criticised Brexit divorce deal next month – but has also said the chances of Britain remaining the bloc has increased slightly over the course of the last few months The DEaily Express reports.

He also admitted the possibility of a second referendum as unlikely – while taking the opportunity to issue a stark warning over the dangers of a no-deal Brexit, warning Mrs May Britain risked becoming a “like Morocco” if it crashed out without an agreement in place on March 29, 2019. And he fears a no deal Brexit would also hit Germany hard financially. German national Mr Oettinger, the EU’s budget specialist, said there was still a chance MPs would vote in favour of Mr May’s withdrawal agreement agreement in January and that there was no public support for a disorderly Brexit or another referendum.

The EU has a long track record for overturning the results of referenda in member states. Previous votes in Ireland, Portugal and Greece have simply been overruled while the rejection of the European Constitution (which paved the way to a federal superstate,)rejected by voters in France and Netherlands, was withdrawn and replaced by the Lisbon Treaty which contained the same clauses but presented as a treaty change rather than a new pan - EU constitution could be ratified by national assemblies without need for a plebicite.

Mrs May’s withdrawal agreement, which her critics say gives the EU everything they wanted while guaranteeing none of the conditions the British parliamented insisted on, was understandably ratified by Brussels on November 25, but a vote in the UK parliament had to be posponed earlier this month after May's advisers convinced her the package would be voted down by a large majority of MPs.

The deal is unacceptable toConservative Eurosceptic MPs and Democratic Unionist Party MPs, who are deeply unhappy with a commitment to a “backstop” for Northern Ireland which would tie it to EU rules and regulations during the course of a possibly indefinite transition phase which will follow Britain leaving the EU. Critics say this is unacceptable because it would see Northern Ireland treated differently from the rest of the UK. Meanwhile the Labour Party is committed to remaining in a customs union with the EU, so are highly unlikely to back Mrs May’s proposals in their current form. Some opponents of the deal see the backstop as a bid by Dublin to reunify Ireland by stealth.


No-deal Brexit could increase risk to public safety, Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick warns

The Daily Telegraph leads with a report of Cressida Dick, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner whining that a no-deal Brexit could put the public’s safety at risk, Britain’s top police officer warned on Thursday.

Ms. Dick warned that the loss of access to European intelligence agencies’ databases and agreements on arrest and extradition threatened the police’s crime-fighting capability. This is in spite of the fact that UK security agencies have been far more successful than their European counterparts at containing the threat of Islamic extremism, in fact britain's GCHQ, a creepy agency deeply involved in microsurveillance of citizens on a par with that caried out by the American CIA and NSA, is indispensible to European security services which have nothing comparable.

In the event of a no deal which would be “very hard in the short term”, Dick said said: “We will have to replace some of the things we currently use in terms of access to databases, the way in which we can quickly extradite and arrest people.

“We will have to replace [them] as effectively as we can. That will be more costly undoubtedly, slower undoubtedly and potentially put the public at risk. No doubt about that.

“But I understand this is just one of many things that politicians who are deciding what to do are thinking about.”

Answering a journalist's question on whether there would be time to put bilateral arrangements in place before Brexit day, she said: “We can talk about how that might happen but whilst so much is unknown nothing can be put in place and it would be improper to do so.”

Ms. Dick is hardly in a position to be taken seriously when commenting about public safety. There is little risk to individuals from terorist activity although incodents always grab headlines. A far higher level of risk to individuals in Greater London, the jurisdiction of the Metropolitan Police, comes from kinfe crimes, acid attacks and general volience and criminal damage perpetrated mainly by members of immigrant communities as a result of Dick, in collaboration with London's Mayor Sadiq "Unhappy Richard" Khan, deciding to prioritise the prosecution of those suspected of 'hate crime' over the pursuit and arrest of real criminals.

Brexit 'tragedy' to RAMP UP pressure on European Union, former German minister warns

THE "great tragedy" of Brexit will put "additional pressure" on European Union member states to promote the bloc's Euro agenda to international trade partners, former German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer warned.

Mr Fischer admitted Brexit will not affect the "geopolitical situation" in Europe, but said Britain's decision to quit the European Union will put "additional pressure" on member states. The former German minister claimed his home nation and France, in particular, will have to ramp up efforts to promote Europe's international role as the economic focus strays away to the West into fast-developing Asian countries. He also appeared to suggest Berlin will continue to maintain ties with London as "there is life after divorce."

Speaking to Euronews, Mr Fischer said: "The geopolitical situation is not going to change, neither for the English nor for us.I think Brexit is a great tragedy – unnecessary, just like a hole in your head. You really don’t need it but it’s reality and it will put additional pressure on the continental Europeans."

The former Foreign Minister claimed a key factor in protecting the international role of the European Union was to increase efforts to integrate member states more – and strengthen ties with France.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Sweden: Authorities cancel traditional Christmas concerts, promote Islamic events

Sweden’s, and perhaps the world’s largest outdoor Christmas concert “Oh Holy Night”, which traditionally airs on Swedish national TV on Christmas Eve each year, has been cancelled, SVT news reports.

This is most likely yet another example of the Swedish governmenmt's policy of suppressing ancient European traditions in order not to offend migrants who don’t hold Christian beliefs (a.k.a. Muslim extremists who hate everything Christian and European, who steal, rape and murder in the knowledge that even if the police bother to investigate their crimes - asking immigrant to obey Swedish law is racist according to left wing politicians in Sweden - can rely on the courts acting with extreme leniency in response to even the most serious of crimes.

Earlier incidents of this state sponsored de-Swedenication of Sweden include: replacing the image of Santa Lucia (December 21st), who according to the ancient Swedish Pagan Yule tradition always has been a long haired, blonde, beautiful woman, with a black boy.

Putting a woman in a hijab on the annual Advent/Christmas calendar.

Cancelling the traditional student choirs’ appearance on TV at Valborg (Swedish Pagan spring celebration).

Principals forbidding students to wave the Swedish flag on graduation day.

Insisting on prayer for diversity at National Day celebration events.

Left-wing Swedes promoting the idea that Sweden’s National Day should not be celebrated, on TV and in national papers.

At the same time Muslim culture and traditions are being intensely promoted:

On Midsummer’s Day (Sweden’s celebration of the sun at its height, the most culturally significant traditional holiday in the Swedish calendar) TV4 decided to let a woman in a hijab teach the Swedes how to cook kebab properly in preparation for Ramadan, the holy month of the Islamic calendar. It was a political gesture of course, cooking a kebab is not difficult. Ramadan is also celebrated with state funded public events in all Swedish cities with large migrant communities as well as on TV. In spite of protests from Christian and secular Swedes, authorities are allowing the Islamic call to prayer to be played through loudspeakers (at 110 dB), while at the same time banning bell rining in Christian churches (presulmably bells are an abomination to Allah.)

Sadly, this is not confined to Sweden. Similar things are occurring throughout the liberal democracies of Western Europe, and will continue to occur as long as the ruling elites pursue immigrant friendly policies aimed at replacing the educated, well informed working classes of Europe with ignorant, illiterate (and therefore not capable of dissent) third world peasants.

In order to save ourselves we need to stand up for national cultures and traditions, and to stop accepting government's efforts to force us to accept Islamic values and morals, ignore pro - Islamic laws such as the recent judgement in the European Court which makes ALL criticism of Islam subject to charges of blasphemy (meanwhile Muslims can say what they like about Christianity, Atheism, Paganism, humanism, Hinduism and buddhism,) In counties all over the European continent, along with the United States, Canada, Australia and South East Asia resistance to the ruling elite's efforts to inject Islam into our way of life is growing. Join the resistance NOW. Islam is a burtal, primitive religion that treats women as property, executes people for having sex outside marriage and imposes the death penalty for homosexuality. We must act, in a few more years it will be too late.


More on Islam’s eradication of Swedish culture via Swedish school bans centuries-old Christian tradition but celebrates Muhammad’s journey to heaven Prohibition of the Swedish Christmas tradition Lucia has sparked debate in Sweden. In Motala, the Lucia celebration has been cancelled at Kärrbacken School. According to preschool manager Anna Karmskog, they want to avoid discrimination, offensive treatment and do not want to “exclude” anyone. It is also seen from an “equality perspective”. Many people buy Lucia costumes for one occasion. It does not feel right to force the parents to buy these, she says, untruthfully. I have worked in Sweden and been involved in a Lucia celebration (festival of light celebrating the day on which the sun passes its lowest point on the noon horizon and days start to lengthen. Special costumes are optional, all that is needed is a candle and something to catch wax, which can be fashioned out of tinfoil. Left wing activist teachers, honouring the killjoy spirit we traditionally associate with the virtue signalling, politically correct left, say many children are rendered anxious and sad in a large crowd, and the “gender perspective” as the children “walk in a row” is questioned. In other words boys walk in one line, girls in another. The school did not discussed the cancellation with the parents, the leftist techers simply imposed theor prejudices. In Mellerud, Åsen’s school decided to boycott the Lucia celebrations altogether, at both primary and middle school. A parent at the school, Ingrid Stewart, believes the ban has to do with religion and the hated of left wing staff towards Christianity and Swedish culture. “I suspect it. Everyone does not feel comfortable with Lucia celebrations according to the school. But last week, the school celebrated Muhammad’s journey to heaven without even informing us.”, she says. Some now say that the cancelled Lucia celebration is a prelude to cancel Christmas and force Swedes to adapt to Islam. Recently, to prevent terror attacks, barriers have also been set up at Christmas Markets in Malmö.Organi. Fortunately all this is strengtening the Sweden Democrats, the nationalist political party.

Yellow Vest Protesters Across France Exceed 38,000 - Reports

protest im Montmartre
Police and Yellow Vest protestors clash in Montmartre. Source: AFP Getty

In spite of the efforts by government influenced mainsteam meadia to claim the sixt week of Yellow vest protests in France only attracted a few thousand participants, The number of demonstrators who are taking part in “yellow vest” rallies across France on Saturday has exceeded 38,000, local media reported, citing the Interior Ministry. It was obvious from media coverage of protests in Paris alone that the momement is not diminishing in strength. Whatever 'fake news' government propagandists try to spread, alt_media are ahead of them, getting the real news out.

The France Info radio station reported that the police had detained 220 protesters across the country, with 81 of them taken into custody. A Sputnik correspondent earlier reported that police had used water cannons and tear gas to disperse the protesters on the Champs Elysee in Paris, where TV news reports showe that the protests were much larger than the government of city authorities were willing to admit.

The wave of 'Gilets Jaunes' (yellow vest) protests — named after the manadatory high visibility sleeveless jacket all French drivers carry — started in mid-November over plans to impoose a large tax increase on fuel for automobiles and commercial vehicles as part of President Macron's highly unpopular green agenda.

While the French government has for the current tax year scrapped its planned hike fuel taxes, which is what initially sparked the protests, the “yellow vests” have evolved into a broader movement against government policies and rising living costs. The rallies have been marked by violent clashes between protesters and the police.


Macron Calls for Order, Calm in Country Amid ‘Yellow Vests’ Protests

French President Emmanuel Macron called on Sunday for establishing order and accord in the country amid another wave of "yellow vests" rallies.

"The time has come for order, calm and harmony to prevail in the country. Our country needs it, it needs accord, unity and sincere commitment to important common goals. It is necessary to eliminate the existing differences", Macron told the BFMTV broadcaster.

Allegations of Russian Link to 'Yellow Vests' a Real Flop - French Journo

A yellow vests protestor in Paris (source: Sputnik)

The attempts by government officials in France, Britain, the USA and the European Union executive to claim the government of Russia has been deeply involved in the rise of the Gilets Janunes (Yellow Vests) protest that has spead from France across Europe have nothing to do with reality and are being used to promote the application of the controversial "fake news" law, Patrick Kamenka, a member of the French National Union of Journalists (SNJ-CGT), said on Wednesday.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian started this particular 'fake news' campaign in early December, presumably to divert attention from the profound ineptitude of the Macron administration. Le Drian claimed that French authorities were investigating media reports about Russian involvement in the protests. Moscow laughed off the accusation, saying that the yellow vest protests were France's internal affair, calling the claims slander.

The yellow vest movement began on social media early this year as various groups formed to protest Macron's policies, which his critics claim favour the wealthy elite and disregard the concerns of ordinary people, the current wave of street protests were sparked last month by anger over fuel tax increases in France and have ever since expanded into wider grievances.

"I think it [ the Russia story ] is a real flop… I believe these accusations are completely out of touch with reality in France. This situation is social, people are asking for a better life because of the social difficulties they have… The real problem is what would be the answer of the government and President Emmanuel Macron to the demands of the people… I think that if you go and ask people who are demonstrating or fighting for their rights, they will be surprised to hear these rumors," Kamenka said.

In late November, the French National Assembly passed a law enacting measures to suppress "the manipulation of information," and empowering French judges to order the removal of "fake news" from websites during election campaigns. Before being adopted by the lower house of the French parliament, the law was rejected twice by the Senate. In the eyes of President Macron's administration, 'fake news' is anything which challenges or criticises the narratives being promoted by the French government and the European Union.

Kamenka believes the bill's authors are gambling that allegations of Russia’s involvement in the "yellow vest" protests could help the supporters of the law to push it forward.

"We as a union declared recently that this law is very much against the freedom of expression and can be used against any media or any journalist… In this case, they are playing games accusing either Russia or the US of trying to push this social [yellow vest] movement forward… I think it will help those who introduced that law to the French parliament," Kamenka underlined.

Extremist Muslim Group Influence Government Report On Islamophobia

Controversial Muslim activist group MEND, which has ben involved in promoting extremism as well as lobbying the government in support of further Islamification of british institutions, has “exerted decisive intellectual influence” in the government's first report from a think tank looking at Islamophobia in Britain, according to a research note.

Sir John Jenkins, former British Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, drew the conclusion that the extremist group has influenced the content of the report in a research paper for Policy Exchange after analysing the All-Party Parliamentary Group’s (APPG) investigation, Islamophobia Defined: The Inquiry into a Working Definition of Islamophobia, which calls for the Government to establish a working definition of Islamophobia as “rooted in racism” and “a type of racism that targets expressions of Muslimness or perceived Muslimness.”

Sir John reported that “although MEND is mentioned only once in the main body of the report… "It is clear that MEND [Muslim Engagement and Development], an organisation with a tarnished reputation in Government circles, has exerted an important intellectual influence on the APPG.”

Sir John, co-authored of the British Government’s 2015 review of the Muslim Brotherhood which found that the Egypt-founded Islamic supremacist group maintained links with the influential Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), and states that “MEND has long been surrounded by controversy.

“Earlier this year, a senior MEND representative asserted that Muslims in the UK face a situation analogous to that of Jews in Nazi Germany before the Holocaust.

“Its former director of engagement, Azad Ali, is reported to have said in March 2017 that that month’s attack on Parliament, which killed five people, was ‘not terrorism’.”

Last year a report by The Henry Jackson Society, a think tank which promotes liberal democracy and highlights the dangers of extremism, stated that the Muslim group, which has ben consulted by politicians, promoted extremism, sharia law, Islamic supremacy and Muslim grievance narratives.

Noting that MEND has been working for the same expansion of the definition of Islamophobia as the APPG, i.e. that it be made a hate crime and that anything deemed by Muslim groups to be criticism of Islam shall be considered an expresion of Islamophobia, Sir John closed with the warning: “The connection between the APPG report and the MEND agenda is not simply intellectual,” and outlined the deep connections between the group and those who prepared the report.

It is a sad comment on our ruling elite that they are actively assisting Muslim extremist groups to undermine british democracy and cultural values, and spread the doctrine of this vile, brutal, homophobic, misogyinistic, medieval religion in a civilised society like our. We spent 300 years pising the grip of pernicious christianity from the levers of power in Britain. Are we now expected to stand aside like a bunch of wimps while the elite hand the same kind of influence to an even more corrosive religion. To oppose islam is not Islamophobia, it's common sense.

Media’s hyping of Russia threat a ‘grotesque absurdity’ says veteran investigative reporter John Pilger

Investigative journalist John Pilger has called out the “grotesque absurdity” of those in the Western media who hype the so-called threats from Russia and China to Cold War levels, in an interview with RT’s Going Underground. Pilger told RT’s Afshin Rattansi that he finds it “difficult to believe” how some journalists “should go along, should allow themselves to be indulged by the British government at a time when there is a litany of lies about Russia, about China — about so many issues that endanger us.” “I've never known such a grotesque absurdity as the elevation of Russia and China and the perceived enemies to the kind of Cold War status they had when I was a child,” he said.

Yellow Vests block Major Roads, Cause Transport Chaos In France

Reuters reports French "yellow vest" protesters wreaked havoc with road transport on Tuesday by occupying autoroute toll booths and even torching some of them. France's biggest toll road operator, Vinci Autoroutes , said there were demonstrations at 40 of its sites and that several highway intersections had been heavily damaged, mainly in southern of France.

The Bandol toll station, near Marseille in the south of France, suffered fire damage on Tuesday and the A50 highway was closed, said Vinci, whose network is mainly in the south and west of the country.

"Motorists should take utmost care as they approach toll gates and motorway access ramps due to the presence of numerous pedestrians," Vinci said in a statement.

People have died in roadside accidents at yellow vest roadblocks in recent weeks, mostly at roundabouts blocked by groups of demonstrators. The 'yellow vests' protesters - named after the fluorescent jackets French motorists must have in their cars - have blocked roads and roundabouts across France since mid-November.

The demonstrations began as a protest against fuel tax increases, but have since grown into a bigger backlash against the policies of French President Emmanuel Macron.

Over the past four Saturdays, demonstrators have torched cars, looted shops and clashed with police in Paris and other French cities, although protests in the capital last weekend were smaller and more peaceful than previous ones.

Sweden Democrats: Far right takes over Swedish countryside

Conservative and populist party the Sweden Democrats are still gaining popularity as the country blunders on, now in its fourth month without a government, since the inconclusive election in september this year. Though the Sweden Democrats emrged as the third largest partyu in that election, Sweden's center-right parties have refused to cooperate with them to form an official coalition or on a supply and confidence basis, claiming the SDs have neo-Nazi roots. But out in the municipalities, they have no such scruples. The center-right moderates have teamed up with the Sweden Democrats to seize or hold on to power in eight municipalities, and in return have backed the Sweden Democrats to take power in three more.

Cecilia Bladh in Zito, 43, had just been voted in as mayor for the far-right Sweden Democrats in the Swedish town of Horby. The same day Louise Erixon, partner of Jimmie Akesson, the populist party's leader, was made mayor of Solvesborg, another municipality in the Sweden Democrat stronghold of Skane, and last month another party member became mayor of a third, the municipality of Bromölla.

The three mayorships mark the first taste of real political power for the party 30 years after it was founded. "I'm extremely happy," Bladh in Zito told DW. "It's the first time that Swedish Democrats have become mayors, so we are in the spotlight of course. The media are watching us, and all the voters are of course looking at us and asking 'are the Sweden Democrats up to taking this responsibility?'"

One of the most striking images of September's general election was the map of Skane, Sweden's southernmost county, turning almost completely yellow (as per the color of their logo) as the populists emerged as the biggest party across huge swatches of the territory.

Despite the smears and (largely manufactured,) scandals as Sweden heads for a rerun of the election, the Sweden democrats seem set to build on their September success. In October, Stefan Borg, the party's local chairman, was forced to withdraw his candidacy to be mayor of Horby, following revelations that he made a series of homophobic comments on Facebook.

But with 35 percent of people in Horby voting for the party, many still believe it can bring greater order to the town center, which Bladh in Zito claims has become so unsafe, due to the lawlessness of its immigrant comunity that she no longer goes out after dark.

"The idea now is that it's going to be better, we hope," said a woman serving coffee and Christmas saffron buns at the Boijertz Conditori overlooking the town Christmas tree. "It's been pretty rough here in the municipality, so we hope there will be a little change."

“Britain’s political class could see a revolution like they’ve never seen before,” yellow vests UK warn

Yellow Vest movement hits UK

Yellow vests come to UK
Yellow Vests protestors in London, December 14, 2018

The Yellow Vest movement, which started in france and has spread to The Netherlands, Belgium, Austria and Spain is not on course to end anytime soon, with British activists taking to the streets of London last Friday. They donned the appropriate hi vis waistcoats and blocked traffic on Westminster Bridge, one of the main rover crossings in London, chanting pro-Brexit slogans.

One yellow vest protester talked of their wish to reclaim Great Britain: “We don’t want to be part of the federal European superstate that’s going to erode our rights and take away democracy. This is Britain. We are not European. We have never been European. This is our land and we are taking it back. If the political class don’t like it, they will see a revolution like they’ve never seen before. It is time to take up the spirit of Oliver Cromwell, rise up and reclaim what’s rightfully ours.”

The yellow vests were outside the entrance to Downing Street where The Prime Minister's official residence is located, and on Westminster Bridge, Tower Bridge and London Bridge on Friday. Their press statements suggest they are determined to support Brexit as well put presure on government over other issues:

“The yellow vests is just a start. This will spread out to the whole country,” one protestor said.

As Prime Minister Theresa May is trying to push her Brexit-In-Name-Only deal through parliament, the British Yellow Vests spoke of the brexit they want.

“We don’t want the deal. Dump the deal. No deal Brexit but trading under World Trade Organisation terms. Our fishing industry was decimated by the European Union. We have seen mass migration. We’ve the outsourcing of all of our factories going into the EU. We can’t have this anymore. This country is being raped and pillaged. It is time we stood up for what we believed in.”

One activist, when asked what the general opinion is of a second referendum on the nature of the deal, retorted bluntly: “If there is a second referendum, there will be mayhem. We will make sure that the polling stations are unreachable. The will of the people has to be respected. If it isn’t — you will see riots that make riots in France seem like nothing.”

UN Migration Pact: Which Governments Are Prepared To Sell Out Their People?

by Arthur Foxake, 18 December 2018

merkel and macron, globalist puppets
German Chancellor Angela Merkel and France's Emmanuel Macron, together they planned to turn Europe into a multicultural utopia, both triggered civil unrest in their homelands.

The United Nation’s Global Compact for migration has sent shock waves through most of the nations in the developed morld. Since being discussed and adopted by leaders and opinion makers from around the world at the Marrakech conference in Morocco this month, it has had a very divisive effect around the world and attracted hostility from both the public and their respective governments as wannabe global government The United Nations Organisation seeks to make migration a human right and a vahicle for the replacement of educated westerners in their own native countries with the illiterate masses of the third world.

A clear trend that has emerged since the migration crisis began in Europe after the unelected bureaucrats of the EU imposed an 'open doors' immigration policy, ordering members stated to admit anyone who arrived at border control points even if they did not have basic identification documents. Eastern Europe plus Italy, Austria and the Baltic States are resisting this latest push towards Globalism while more prospers Northern and Western European countries alining with the globalist overlords of the corporate - financial cartel.

So which countries are in and who is out? Well the most prominent and influential refusenik is Presodent Trump of the USA, President Putin of Russia and Chairman Xi of China did not even bother to comment on the proposal, their nations will continue to be highly selective about who they admit. And most of the other large poulation nations, India, Pakistan, Indonesia, Nigeria, Brazil, Bangladesh, Philippines and Ethiopia being some examples, are such unconscienable shitholes nobody in their right mind would want to move there to 'seek a better life.'

Portugal and Spain, both with left-leaning socialist governments, already stated that will sign the pact when the time comes. However both have very unstable minority governments and the withdrawal of support from the ruling coalition by a minor party could change the picture.

In France, the unpopular French president Macron already called the deal ‘a good text’, hinting that he will sign the deal. Macron has more pressing problems right now of course, with the 'Yellow Vests' protests causing widespread civil unrest and one of the main causes of discontent among the working and middle class being mass immigration and related social problems.

Across the channel, astoundingly given her problems with Brexit, UK prime minister Theresa May confirmed she would sign the document, as for Ireland, the Irelands prime minister, the pouf Varadkar, recently celebrated that “since 2011 about 120,000 people have become Irish citizens, strengthening our economy, running our public services and enriching our society” clearing any doubt he will keep letting people in through the back door.

As for the Benelux countries, Belgium’s prime minister confirmed he will sign the deal, after much confusion and a heated debate around the pact, the nationalist N-VA party leaving the government puts the ruling coalition under pressure, making Charles Michel the head of a minority government. For several years, since a bust up between the French speaking Waloons in the south and the Dutch speaking Phlegms in the north, the country has teetered on the edge of becoming two separate states.

The Netherlands and Luxembourg are also expected to sign the deal though with strong oposition from rising nationalist parties. Germany’s government under Merkel already backed the controversial document, not much surprises from the same leader who opened Europe’s doors to millions of migrants in 2015, but Merkel too heads a fragile coalition as anti - immigration nationalist party AfD (Alternatif fur Deutschland) continue to gain strength. In her current position Merkel cannot pass controversial legislation and dare not risk an election as the AfD could become the largest party in the German assembly.

The Nordic countries, led by the testicularly deficient Swedes, are expected to join the pact, despite the social problems already experienced by Sweden due to uncontrolled immigration, Norway could surprise pundits, while Denmark has refused, with Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen stating “The government would never dream of signing something that weakens our ability to implement the strict immigration policies we have in Denmark.” However, Mr Rasmussen will be attending the conference after Denmark’s immigration minister said she wouldn’t attend the gathering, showing a big divide across the Danish government as well.

All 3 Baltic countries rejected the deal, as well as the Visegrad group comprising Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary, following Austria’s example. The populist Italian prime minister Matteo Salvini shunned the deal too while Switzerland had a late withdrawal from the pact after lawmakers insisted they have the final say on the matter.

In the Balkan region, however, Bulgaria already said it would be out of the pact, Slovenia, Croatia and Montenegro already showed themselves interested in joining the deal, Bosnia and Albania already signed the document while Serbia Macedonia, Romania and Greece remain ambiguous at this point.

All in all it looks like being a narrow victory for common sense against the dark forces of globbalism and their efforts to create a world government.

It's Over For Macron - French Farmers Spray Pig Shit In Paris

If you rely on fake news services like the BBC, ITN/Sky and the traditional newspapers for news you will probably have believed the Gilet's Jaunes protests against the elitist government of Emmanuel Macron are dying down. With unrest stirring in Britan over the Brexit shambles, the government and government - friendly news media are desperate to reinforce the message, "If you challenge authority, you will be crushed.

This the weekends news bulletins showed Marcron's paramilitary thugs, The Gendarmerie, driving protesors including bare breasted women dressed as Marianne, Goddess of Liberty, off the streets. In truth there were smaller numbers on the streets in central Paris this week because the government had closed many routes into the city and the railways were on strike. This blog and our twin, The Daily Stirrer, focused on protests in provincial cities, Toulouse, bordeaux, Lyon and Marseilles but we missed the best news of the week for lovers of liberty and enemies of authoritarianism.

Live leaks had this: French farmers dump hundreds of tonnes of manure on the streets and spray city building with slurry in day of protest (video).

As unofficial reports claim it was pig slurry the farmers sprayed, let's hope they gave the Muslim ghettoes where French women are afraid to go out alone, a good soaking.

Sex Ed: Pupils To Be Taught Boys Can Have Periods Too

Brighton school trans heaven
Brighton a haven for trans pupils (Source: www.independent.co,uk

A city in southern England has become the first to prove that it's city council is collectively certifiable insane.Following a report commissioned by councillors which recommends pupils as young as eight in local schools be taught: "Trans boys and men and non-binary people may have periods." The report adds that "menstruation must be inclusive of all genders".

The recommendation was adopted by Brighton & Hove City Council as part of an effort to tackle the stigma attached to menstruation. It is not quite clear how politically correct virtue signalling will remove any stigma regarding periods, but teaching pupils politically correct nonsense instead of science will help nothing. In fact, once adolescents find out how much fun can be had with the idea of boys having periods, and how much more fun can be had absolutely crucifying the poor teacher who has to try and teach it, the idea isonly going to make things worse.

Now that the council has agreed to adopt the report's findings, in sex education lessons in Brighton schools, pupils will be taught that "all genders can have periods". This is being hailed by LGBT activists as a a victory for transgender rights.

Unfortunately nobody seems to have noticed it is a travesty against the laws of nature. And nobody in mainstream media is likely to point out the irony contain in the fact that activist groups who have told us for the past twenty years that, "You must believe the science on climate change," are now blatantly disregarding three thousand years of bilogical study to pander to a left wing sacred cow.

The report gets even forther into loonytoons territory when it suggsts, "language and learning about periods is inclusive of all genders, cultures, faiths and sexual orientations. For example; ‘girls and women and others who have periods'". Bins used for menstruation products will be provided in all toilets, appropriately maked with gender inclusive instructions to encourage boys, girls and others who are surfing the red tide not to be embarrassed about their condition.

It also calls for transgender students and pupils to be provided with additional support from a school nurse if needed. We must hope the school nurse is a psychiatric nurse.

Brighton & Hove City Council's press statement read: "By encouraging effective education on menstruation and puberty, we hope to reduce stigma and ensure no child or young person feels shame in asking for period products inside or outside of school if they need them.

"We believe that it’s important for all genders to be able to learn and talk about menstruation together… Our approach recognises the fact that some people who have periods are trans or non-binary."

This is the same bunch of left wing idiots that recently released a "Trans Inclusion Schools Toolkit" to help teachers deal with gender identity issues sensitively. It asks teachers to be respectful and inclusive of children who are questioning their gender, and tells them that purposefully not referring to children by their preferred pronoun or name can constitute harassment. The toolkit also suggests schools adopt non-gendered uniforms so all children feel included, and to reduce bullying. A school not far from Brighton, in the interests of promoting gender fluidity, recently tried impose a uniform ruling rquiring boys to wear skirts. The result was that teachers found themselved being bullied by irate parents.

Conservative MP David Davies told The Mail on Sunday that it is "insanity" to require teachers lead pupils to believe that transgender boys can have periods. Davis said: "Learning about periods is already a difficult subject for children that age, so to throw in the idea boys who believe they are girls also have periods will leave them completely confused."

The problems start at the very beginning. Are 'trans boys' boys who want to be girls or girls who want to be boys, and vice versa. From there, even when dealing with adults, the whole transgender thing becones a quagmire of confusing terminiology. With pre pubescent children the most likely outcome is they will recognise what they are being taught for complete claptrap and become completelt alienated from school.

Draft Government recommendations say schools are free to determine how they address lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues, ensuring teaching is “sensitive and age-appropriate”.

U.K. Supreme Court On Scottish Independence

The UK's Supreme Court, has ruled on the legal status of Scottish, that the Scottish Parliament does not have legal standing to demand the right to veto the EU Withdrawal Act. The judgement specifically states that the Scottish Bill contravenes both the t he original devolution settlement, The Scotland Act, and the Tory/DUP government’s recent European Union (Withdrawal) Act, which withdrew some devolved powers from the Scottish Parliament and returned them to Westminster. The Tory/DUP European Union (Withdrawal) Act Schedule 4 specified that it overruled the Scotland Act devolution settlement.

They can take our lives, but they'll never take our deep fried Mars Bars (Picture: still from Braveheart - Wikimedia Commons)

You can read the full judgement, but the significant parts are paragraphss 47 to 65, which state clearly that neither the Scotland Act nor the Sewell Convention in any way limits the power of the UK Parliament to legislate for Scotland, even in devolved areas, without any need for consent from Scottish ministers or parliament. The justices specifically explain that London ministers have complete power under the Scotland Act, without needing consent from the Scottish Parliament or further endorsement from the Westminster parliament, to impose secondary legislation on Scotland. The Supreme Court said in its press release for the media:
What is the effect of the UK Withdrawal Act on the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament in relation to the Scottish Bill? The UK Withdrawal Act is not a reserved matter but it is protected against modification under Schedule 4 [99]. Several provisions of the Scottish Bill in whole or in part amount to modifications of the UK Withdrawal Act. These are: section 2(2) [101]; section 5 [102]; section 7(2)(b) and 7(3) [103-104]; section 8(2) [105]; section 9A [106]; section 9B [107]; section 10(2), 10(3)(a) and 10(4)(a) [108-110]; section 11 [111-113]; section 13B, section 14, section 14A, section 15, section 16, section 19(1) and section 22 (to the extent that these provisions relate to section 11) [114-118, 120-121]; section 26A(6) [122]; and section 33 and Schedule 1 paragraphs 11(a) and 16 [123-124].
The judgement reaffirms Scotland’s colonial status and the London view that the Scotland Act did not recognise any inherent Scottish rights, but rather graciously handed down from above some powers that London may change at a whim, exactly as though Scotland were an English County Council. All of which was addressed in the independence referendum of 2014, when Scottish voters heard all the philosophical arguments for full independence, weighed these against the extent to which Scotland's economy is dependent on England, and decisively rejected independence. Taking all this into account, the part of the judgement which states that it was not in itself outside the remit of the Scottish Parliament to pass a bill which relates solely to the domestic effects of EU withdrawal, that is utterly irrelevant in the wider scheme of things. Incidentally it is worth noting that all the hysterical lefties currently running round screeching Trump said he's a nationalist, that means he's a Nazi because Hitler was a National Socialist, Gertmany's 'far right' AfD are Nazis because Hitler etc.," or "Italy's 'far right' Lega are Nazis because ..." and Sweden's 'far right' Sweden Democrats blah blah, because nationalism is evil." have never uttred a word against the far left neo-stalinists of The Scottish Nationalist Party. Just thought I'd mention that because recently I'd had some very amusing exchanges with liberals and lefties for pointing out that if you say all Nationalism is evil because Trump and Hitler are nationalists, then you are saying Gandhi and the Dalai Lama are evil because they are also nationalists. Liberals and lefties don't have very good literacy skills because they unanimously say, "But you can't compare Gandhi to Hitler ..." I'm not comparing of course, I'm contrasting, in the hope (a forlorn hope in the case of brainwashed liberals and lefties perhaps, that readers who do not already understand that nationalism is not specifically about invading Poland or exerminating ethic minorities. Nationalist, like liberal, can only ever be loosely defined. RELATED POSTS:

'Brexiteers Consider your ETHICS! raves EU President Tusk in scaremongering speech threatening CATASTROPHE

EU chief Donald Tusk has made an astounding and irrational attack on Brexiteers and appeared to question the ethics of Leave voters as he used Brexit to urge politicians to consider what the consequences of their actions would be. If you thought Juncker was EU President BTW, you were right, in the best traditions of a bloated bureaucracy the EU has three presidents.

A Polish guy lecturing us on ethics? I read a lot of history and I remember reading several accounts of how in the 1930s Poland followed Germany's lead and elected a Nazi government. Can;t see much ethical about that.

Speaking in Dortmund, Germany, Tusk said he wanted to remind leaders it was the centenary of the end of the First World War, when "sleepwalkers in power" with "hopelessly weak imaginations" led Europe to "catastrophe". The European Council president said he wanted to dedicate the words of sociologist Max Weber to the "authors of Brexit". He used the example of Brexit to urge politicians to consider what the consequences of their actions would be.

OK, if that's how he feels, we should tell him Poland can forget about coming crying to us next time germany or Russia feels like giving them a kicking.

He went on to say: "Today we need leaders who understand that their role is not only having techonoctraic skill and the ability to stay in power. We need leaders who can use the potential of emotions to defend our fundamental values.

"When today I hear European politicians who wipe out all the tradition of liberal democracy for whom human rights, minority rights, government within the law, the precedence of the constitution over the will of rulers and free media are empty slogans I loudly say ‘no because I know what these principles mean remembering still what life is like for a man deprived of rights who is at the mercy, or lack of mercy of those in power.

"Europe is the best place on earth and the European Union is the best political invention in our history."

All of which is rather projectile vomit inducing hypocrisy when we remember what the EU did to little Greece when they asked the EU to remember its ethical obligations, and what it is trying to to to not so litlle Britain and Italy (and fair play to Italy for standing its ground, while the political whore Theresa May tries to sell her country's values, traditions and sovereignty.)

Bare-Breasted 'Mariannes' Confront Macron's Riot Police Thugs As Yellow Vests Second French Revolution Gathers Momentum

After France's rebellion of the Yellow Vests turned violent last week during the fourth wek of protest against the globalist, elitist govertnment of Emmanuel Macron, this weekend's protests (week 5) saw a futher escalation in the protesters anger against the government, which they claim is a government for the rich and for foreign nations rather than the people of France. Well as this news site has always said, that is what globalism is all about.

Again vast number of police, around 70,000 according to unoficial reports, have been mobilized across France in an effort to suppress the protesters, which the government says number 33,000, wThich would be a much lower turnout than in previous weeks could it be believed. Last weeks actually numbers of protestors was many more times higher than government figures, proving the old maxim that truth is the fist casualty of war. he Yellow Vest movement has now spread to several other European Union member states,notably Belgium and Netherlands, as well French speaking parts of Canada. There was even a small protest in London yesterday, and the British movement can be expected to grow as the full extent of the government's betrayal of the Brexit vote emerges.

Police used tear gas and pepper spray on protesters in the center of Paris today. One person reported received a head injusry during clashes at Champs-Élysées but there are no reports of further serious bloodshed. A Russia Today correspondent suffered a facial injury and was taken to the hospital.

Meanwhile, in stark contrast to the bright yellow vests worn by most protesters - a groupd of half-naked women posing as Marianne, the Goddess of Liberty and a symbol of French patriotism, have faced off with police in Paris. (All pictures: AFP via Zero Hedge)

Donning blood-red hoodies and coated in silver paint, the women paid homage to the French revolutionary hero on Champs-Élysées avenue on Saturday in a silent demonstration. This signals a significant shift in the nature of the movement as Marianne is a hugely symbolic figure in France, representing the rejection of authoritarianism and the celebration of individual liberty.

Seven people in total have died during the Yellow Vest demonstrations, which has gone from a fuel tax protest to an anti-government movement.

"Last time, we were here for taxes," said 28-year-old called Jeremy told the AFP news agency. "This is for the institutions - we want more direct democracy," he said, adding that people needed to "shout to make themselves heard".

Some museums are closed, but both the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower remain open.

In Calais, a group of "yellow vests" blocked the access road to the port. -BBC

Our girl in France, Cleo Hart reported that picures on rolling news channels showed Paris looking ‘less yellow’ this Saturday as only several hundred people descended on the Champs Elysee, the avenue where the president's official residence is sited and focus of previous protests. This may be because last week President Macron, fearing for his safety, deployed the gendarmerie, a branch of the French military assigned to the civil authorities, whose unrestrained thuggery was responsible for many of the injuries inficted on protestors. Amid a heavy police presence, an estimated 3000 yellow vests gethered in the avenue. This time a week ago the number of protesters was much higher and rallies resulted in heavy clashes.

Unconfirmed reports from France suggest many routes into the city centre were blocked by the authorities, and with strikes in supports of the Yellow Vests crippling the SNCF railway system commentators claim this has prevented many people joining the fifth week od protest

At least 92 people have been detained and 53 taken into police custody in Paris, police said.

Toulouse and Bordeaux had some of the biggest turnouts in the country, with tens of thousands of demonstrators taking to the streets there on Saturday. In Toulouse, which saw violent clashes last week, the authorities have deployed Gendarmerie armored vehicles.

Britain's Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has warned parliament risks causing "real social instability" like the scenes with the yellow vest protestors in France if Brexit is not delivered. The Foreign Secretary told MP’s they must be "very careful" not to “get out of step with where the public are on Brexit”.

Mr Hunt urged the commons "not just think about what our own views on Brexit are, but we have to think what is the solution that is going to bring the country together”. Speaking to The Times, he added: "I wouldn’t rule out real social instability in this country.”

Political analyst John Lichfield likened the protest by the ‘yellow vest’ movement to Brexit and in particular Brexiteers who he describes as being “betrayed by decades of neglect”.

Lichfield told Politico: “The Yellow Jackets fit a worldwide pattern of populist revolt against politics-as-usual, but with a very French accent.

“Starting on the web in October, the movement attracted hundreds of thousands of online supporters in small rural towns and the outer suburbs of metropolitan areas.”

He added “Like the blue-collar Brexit voters in the United Kingdom, the Yellow Jackets believe they have been betrayed by decades of neglect and exploitation by mainstream politicians obsessed with metropolitan areas.”

The Truth About Climate Change Is Not On The Cover Of The Rolling Stone

Rolling Stone was once a decent music magazine, in fact my title references a Dr. Hook song lyric which made the claim that you have 'arrived' when you get your picture on the cover of the Rolling Stone. Alas, like so much connected with music, entertainment and Hollywood, The Rolling Stone has disappeared up its own arse.

Now, instead of sticking with what it is good at, Rolling Stone fancies itself as a left wing opinion maker. And so it has joined the likes of George Cloony, Gwyneth Paltow. Miley Cyrus, Leonardo di Caprio, Taylor Swift and Beyoncé in lecturing us on how we should look after the planet (apparently flying around in a private jet is less harmful than driving a mid rage car. Trouble is RS spouts all the same propaganda as all other left wing rags. Take a recent article on climate change for example:

The Truth About These Climate Change Numbers?—?Rolling Stone

Excerpt:


Image source: Rolling stone, Stefan Zeise

It’s often argued that climate change is not a technological or engineering problem, it is a political problem. And it’s true. We have all the technology we need to power the world with renewables and stave off the worst of climate chaos. What we lack is the political will to take the kind of moonshot-scale action necessary to accomplish it.

But climate change is also a numbers problem. Every ton of carbon that we dump into the atmosphere stays there for hundreds of years, warming the atmosphere and reshaping the future climate. As the recent IPCC report pointed out, to avoid the worst of climate chaos, the world needs to reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2050. Accomplishing that would require not just a remaking of our energy system, but profound changes in agriculture, the design of cities and transportation systems. It is possible to imagine how a revolution like this might happen, but it’s even easier to imagine how it would not.

A new report issued this week by the Global Carbon Project shows that, far from making progress, we’re going in exactly the opposite direction. After several years when global carbon emissions flatlined, giving hope to some that the turning point had come, the new report shows that carbon emissions are projected to increase by 2.7 percent in 2018. That may not sound like a lot, but given what’s at stake with our rapidly changing climate, it’s the equivalent of an alcoholic who had sworn to go cold turkey taking a couple of shots of Jack Daniels at lunch.

[ … ]

“We are in trouble. We are in deep trouble with climate change,” United Nations Secretary General António Guterres said this week at the opening of the 24th annual U.N. climate conference in Poland, where attendees will once again wrestle with how to convince world leaders to implement policies that will sharply reduce carbon emissions in the coming years.

READ ALL >>>

There is a lot wrong with the article. Let’s start at the highlighted section, “We have all the technology we need to power the world with renewables and stave off the worst of climate chaos.” Actually we don’t. Wind and solar have both proved expensive and grossly inefficient and will continue to be so until science finds ways to make the wind blow consistently at between 20 and 40 mph and the sun shine from an elevation of between 60º and 120º to horizontal in a cloudless sky for twenty four hours a day. Even then both only move pollution away from the point of generation to the place of manufacture (which is why China dominates the market in wind turbines and solar panels, they don’t give a flying one about pollution.) Hydro has its own environmental problems and nuclear (not clean but no CO2, the non?—?pollutant plant food that politicians and weirdie beardies obsess over,) sends left wing activists into paroxysms of horror.

Until wind and sun can be relied on to produce energy 24 hours a day to feed the base load modern society puts on the grid, then we are stuck with keeping coal, gas and other fossil fuel generators running even if they are not feeding energy into the grid. So while weirdie beardies and the raffia mafia are squeaking that ‘green energy sources’ powered the entire nation for half a day last summer, it’s wrong. They’re not lying, just naive, while in low demand conditions the amount of energy generated by sustainable sources equalled or exceeded the amount being sucked out of the grid for industrial, commercial domestic and social use, an equivalent amount was being generated by fossil fuels and simply going down to earth. And that is not ‘science,’ it’s insanity.

Rolling Stone and its contributors go on to tell us that “Every ton of carbon that we dump into the atmosphere stays there for hundreds of years,” which again is wrong. Every ton of Carbon Dioxide WE dump into the atmosphere, along with the far greater tonnage dumped during the hours of darkness by vegetation?—?that’s the stuff vegans eat,?—?is cancelled out during the day as the plant life separates CO2 into O2?—?the life giving gas oxygen that we breathe, and C, carbon which is quite important to all carbon based life forms; i.e. every living thing on the planet.) Thus CO2 is quickly reabsorbed to fuel that separation process (photosynthesis) and our contribution helps plants make more plants. Over hundreds of years a carbon ( C ) atom and an oxygen molecule(O2?—?oxygen atoms panic if they are alone,) can be recycled by nature thousands of times. They don’t mate for life, they’re promiscuous, as they can land up in many other sorts of molecule as well. One would think the people at Rolling Stone, with its history as a rock music mag. would be quite relaxed about promiscuity, even in these puritanical times, rather than trying to pretend marriages between C and O2 last for hundreds of years. Carbon hangs around of course, for millons of years as coal or oil, for thousands of years in sub soil, hundreds of years in the wood of a tree, a few months in a leaf, a few days as a butterfly or a few decades as one of us, yes we are carbon based life forms too.

We are in deep trouble with climate change,” United Nations Secretary General António Guterres said this week at the opening of the 24th annual U.N. climate conference in Poland, where attendees will once again wrestle with how to convince world leaders to implement policies that will sharply reduce carbon emissions in the coming years.

We certainly are in trouble as long as the power addicted psychopaths who run the world are prepared to believe the scaremongering of the mathematical modellers and their adjusted data instead of looking at how stuff happens in the real world. The power elites are not interested in the environment of course, that’s why they are happy to export all the high polluting heavy industries to China, India, Indonesia, Brazil, Philippines, Nigeria and other countries that were given a free pass to pollute in the Paris accord. What they want is power, an unassailable grip on the hearts and minds of the educated, questioning, ungovernable working and middle classes of the developed world. They want to scare us into submission to their global government agenda. Time we started rebelling. They need our conspicuous consumption as much as they need the far east’s cheap labour, Russia’s cheap oil and Poland’s cheap coal.

Comedian ‘of minority status’ refused gig when asked to sign’behavioural agreement’

Comedian Konstantin Kisin turned down a lucrative university student union gig after being asked to sign a "behavioural agreement" restricting what he could do jokes about. The entertainer was warned about a "zero tolerance policy" on topics including racism, sexism and transphobia.

He had been invited to perform at the School of African and Oriental Studies (SOAS) in London,in an event organised by university society Unicef on Campus. Konstantin told BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat the experience reflects a growing trend in UK universities of free speech becoming stifled by politically correct attitudes prevelant in student union organisations across the UK.

The group has since apologised for the offensive wording of the form and the Students' Union says it "believes fully in freedom of speech".

Kisin shared the "behavioural agreement form" online, saying of the title "nearly made me puke. I just think it reflects an attitude among a group of people, people at university particularly, where it seems that they have become places of indoctrination rather than learning."

"Students are being taught to make a priority of not giving offence rather than to seeking truth and pursue experiences.

"Universities used to be all about that, but now it seems they're places where students are being taught to be 'woke'. I think it reflects a broader issue, where increasingly there are people who value safety, or what they perceive to be safety."

All we can say is if students are being taught to be 'woke' rather than awakened, the lecturers must be sadly lacking in literacy skills. What is truly appalling however, is that emotional immaturity is being embedded by higher education. What constitutes ffensive comment is a very subjective matter, there is no universally agreed definition. A mature person will not look for offence in verbal or textual information, but will condider it and either accept it as valid even if we do not agree, choose to ignore it or object politely. A mature person does not seek to ban certain words or shades of opinion, 'because diversity.'

The lefties who manage, staff and dominate student politics in our universities like to preach of diversity and multuculturalism, yet time and again we read and hear reports of how they are trying to suppress diversity of opinion and create a politically correct monoculture in the higher education system

The full list of topics listed by the organisers were "racism, sexism, classism, ageism, ableism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, xenophobia, Islamophobia or anti-religion or anti-atheism".

The contract said: "It does not mean that these topics cannot be discussed. But it must be done in a respectful and non-abusive way."' But again we it the problem of who defines what is respectful and what constitutes abusive.

United Nations Performing Puppets To Adopt Migration Pact – Step Towards Global Governance

Travelling in hope? Source: oxfordtoday.ac.uk

The United Nations special conference to endorse the controversial pact on global migration, which seeks to make migration a human right, opened in Morocco today. In spite of a number of high profile refusals to sign up to the pact, including the U.S.A. where President Donald Trump denounced the pact in very strong terms, the wannabe global government that is the United Nations Organisation is pressuring smaller nations to accept uncontolled immigration from third world nations as a universal principle. Australia, Austria, the Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, Hungary, Latvia, Poland and Slovakia have also walked away. And though we have heard no comment either way from them, you can bet your life savings that Russia, China and Japan will not be falling over themselves to support this crackpot idea. A clue as to how toxic this proposal truly is lies in the refusal of Australia: when a country with a political elite as effete and emasculated as Australia's politically correct poofters finds it too much to swallow, it is bound to be good for global corporations and high raking bureaucrats and terrible for ordinary people.

The 32-page Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration was finalised at the UN in July after 18 months of talks. It will be formally adopted at the start of the two-day conference in Marrakesh led by German Chancellor and arch globalist Angela Merkel and supported by France's Emmanuel Macron, whose globalist friendly policies have triggered massive civil unrest in French cities and inspired a protest movement which threatens the French government. Macron himself will not attend as he must prioritise dealing with the “yellow vest” protests at home, but is sending his secretary of state for foreign affairs to back the pact. That will go down like the proverbial lead zeppelin with the protestors.

U.S. President Donald Trump was the first to declare his rejection of the pact, describing it as it the surrender of national sovereignty to a supra national body of unelected bureaucvrats. He said, “Migration should not be governed by an international body unaccountable to our own citizens. Ultimately, the only long-term solution to the migration crisis is to help people build more hopeful futures in their home countries. Make their countries great again.”

Mr. Trump’s pronouncements triggered so many snowflakes it may have been responsible for the freak winter storms experienced in parts of the united states early this year. It also agitated both the mainstream media and globalist politicians.

Representatives of Spain, Greece, Denmark and Portugal will attend and back the vote,

Belgium’s liberal premier Charles Michel won the support of parliament to back the accord, but he was left leading a minority government on Sunday after the Flemish nationalist party quit his coalition over the pact.

The Flemish nationalist party, New Flemish Alliance (N-VA) sensationally quit the shaky coalition after a weekend of crisis talks, prompting Michel to announce he would travel to Marrakesh to sign the controversial compact representing a minority government.

Stepping down as interior minister on Sunday, the N-VA’s Jan Jambon told local media “I think that, formally speaking, we are stepping down. We said that if the coalition goes to Marrakesh, it will be without us.”

It is safe to assume the pact will not be ratified by the Belgian government, if it is presented to the National Assembly and defeated the government is likely to collapse, leading to further gains for nationalists in the ensuing election.

Belgium is among a group of seven nations which the UN describes in that mealy mouthed language of diplomacy, as “engaged in further internal deliberations” over the accord, with Bulgaria, Estonia, Italy, Israel, Slovenia and Switzerland also falling into this category.

The UN special representative for migration, Louise Arbour, on Friday scolded those nations which have decided not to sign the compact. She said: “There are many different issues at stake: economic, to maximise the positive effects of migration on economies of host countries, on countries of origin, on the migrants themselves, on communities which receive them.

Surprisingly (OK, I'm being sarcastic) she did not mention the threat to free speech and press freedom.

But perhaps a bigger clue as to its toe-curling, achingly right-on, surrender-monkey awfulness is offered by the countries which are planning on signing up to it. These include Leo Varadkar’s Ireland and Justin “President Bieber” Trudeau’s Canada: arguably the two Western nations you’d least want to be living in right now because they are currently in the hands of politically correct bedwetters bent on destroying every last vestige of their national identity and replacing it with some kind of squishy, globalist melting pot where people of all colours and creeds hold hands under a rainbow.

Another country which is planning on signing it is the United Kingdom. Which is bizarre to the point of incomprehensibility when you discover what this UN Global Compact on Migration entails.

Essentially it’s a globalist masterplan for making migration easier. Much, much easier. But it will also require signatories to enact measures curtailing the right to free speech by criminalising criticism of migration or migrant communities.

One of the things that has the global government fans really scared is the wave of nationalism surging round the globe as a reaction to UN sponsored mass migration from third world to first world nations. The elites, living on their country estates or in their gated communities love the idea of mass migration, the people who must live alongside the lawless, uneducated elements of migrant communities are not so keen. And New Media gives voices speaking for those people a platform, which in turn drums up support for nationalist political movements. The UN’s solution (totally predictable if you know anything about the authoritarian Modus Operandi of the United Nations, is to make it illegal to talk about this problem.

Read the relevant section of the UN Global Compact on Migration by clicking the link or look at the snippets below to get the flavour of the thing:

OBJECTIVE 17: Eliminate all forms of discrimination and promote evidence-based public discourse to shape perceptions of migration

33. We commit to eliminate all forms of discrimination, condemn and counter expressions, acts and manifestations of racism, racial discrimination, violence, xenophobia and related intolerance against all migrants in conformity with international human rights law. We further commit to promote an open and evidence-based public discourse on migration and migrants in partnership with all parts of society, that generates a more realistic, humane and constructive perception in this regard. We also commit to protect freedom of expression in accordance with international law, recognizing that an open and free debate contributes to a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of migration.

To realize this commitment, we will draw from the following actions:

a) Enact, implement or maintain legislation that penalizes hate crimes and aggravated hate crimes targeting migrants, and train law enforcement and other public officials to identify, prevent and respond to such crimes and other acts of violence that target migrants, as well as to provide medical, legal and psychosocial assistance for victims.

The excuse offered by defenders of this outrageous document and global totalitarian government in general is that it is not legally binding. Unfortunaely that’s the excuse globalists always use to give a veneer of respectability to their Cultural Marxist global initiatives. The same happened with the UN’s Agenda 21 in the early years of the century and before you knew what was happening Barack Obama was declaring that if you collected te rainwater that fell on your roof you were actually guilty of sealing the government's water. At the 1992 Rio Earth Summit leaders of nations and organisations signed up to it because they were led to believe it was not a binding agrement but a statement of intent. But it very quickly became clear that watermelon politicians (green on the outside, red on the inside (h/t J Delingpole,) green lobbyists, and left-leaning pressure groups were using it to force t, and scare stories about imminent climate catastrophe to boost support for policies that benefitted certain agenda, to the detriment of people living on moderate incomes.

Facebook Introduces Anti-sex Censorship In Secret

Facebook is to purge its platform of all sex-related content according to the announcement of a new policy banning everything from nude pictures to “sexualized slang,” up to and including “vague suggestive statements.” The social media giant has not bothered informing its users of the new move.

The new “sexual solicitation” rules were adopted by Facebook's board of directors in October this year, according to PCMag. Once fully implemented they will forbid everything from pornography to “implicit sexual solicitation.” The latter term is purposefully vague, encompassing “vague suggestive statements, such as ‘looking for a good time tonight,’” discussion of “sexual partner preference,” content (including hand-drawn art) that depicts “suggestively posed persons,” and even the use of “sexualized slang.”

Facebook long ago banned pornographic content, and has been joined by many other platforms – even Tumblr is jumping on that bandwagon after a child porn scandal saw the site’s app banned from the Apple store, but this new measure comes with typically Zuckerbergesque justification: “[P]eople use Facebook to discuss and draw attention to sexual violence and exploitation. We recognize the importance of Facebook and want to allow for this discussion. We draw the line, however, when content facilitates, encourages or coordinates sexual encounters between adults.”

You read that correctly – Facebook is OK with discussion of sexual violence, but doesn’t want to provide a platform for consenting adults to meet in real life, or even indulge in a bit of mild flirting. Well a #MeToo supporting dickless creep like Zuckerberg wouldn't want to encorage the idea that sex can fun and fulfilling or anything other than brutal, exploitative and life destroying.

A Facebook spokesperson claims it was Facebook’s human content reviewers (is he really asking us to believe Facebook employs real humans) who requested the new policy, claiming “the sexual exploitation policy did not adequately distinguish between exploitation (e.g. ‘My ex was a slut. Look at the photos she sent me.’) and solicitation (e.g. ‘Looking for swingers. Friday at 8 PM, [name of bar]. Wear pink.’) and solicitation (Hello big boy, I'll give you a good time for $50).” The company has expanded its human workforce following user complaints that algorithms were flagging legitimate content for takedown, including classic works of art featuring exposed nipples and bottoms, and the American Declaration of Independence.

More disturbing than the rules themselves is Facebook’s failure to inform users that a large portion of their content – nearly all Facebook users have deployed a sexual innuendo at some point in their lives – is now likely to get them banned from the site. Shortly after the was adopted, Facebook purged hundreds of pages without warning and seemingly without rhyme or reason (one person's innocent comments is another's double - entendre), dismissing the deleted accounts as “spam” without any sort of appeal process for the affected users, some of whom had thousands of followers. The announcement of this policy, two months after its adoption, raises the disturbing possibility that rules like this could be used as justification for further purges (of political content for example.)

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) blames the controversial SESTA/FOSTA legislation passed in March for Facebook’s hard puritanical shift. Sex workers and LGBT activists took to Twitter to protest the new rules, which they say will disproportionately affect already-marginalized communities.

In what will not rest well with the French public – who have decided to take to the streets with the feeling of being left behind and made poor by socialistic, globalist policy – a video of police tossing a disabled man out of his wheelchair is now going viral in France.

The video, taken at a checkpoint near Yellow Vest protesting in Bessan over the weekend, shows a disabled man in a verbal exchange with police.

Brexit Chaos As DUP And Tory Rebels Sink Theresa May’s Desperate’ To Please Her Euronazi Pals

'DUP and Tory rebels have rejected Theresa May's “desperate” bid to rally MPs to support her pathetic, sellout Brexit deal, ahead of a Commons showdown next week which threatens her position as Prime Minister and leader of her party.

Backbench Tories tabled an amendment to next week’s meaningful vote that would give MPs some control over the Irish backstop, a controversial insurance policy which aims to prevent a hard border on the island of Ireland. Under the plans – which are reported to have been be sanctioned by Downing Street – parliament would decide whether to trigger the backstop arrangement or extend the transition period beyond December 2020.

Brexiteers dismissed the plans as “desperate” and DUP leader Arlene Foster rejected the proposal outright, saying domestic “tinkering” to the withdrawal agreement would not persuade her party’s 10 MPs back the government – making it impossible for Ms May to win the vote unless a lot of people switch sides. And with Labour scenting the fall of the government and victory in the ensuing election, don't expect too many surprises.

The backbench amendment was tabled by former minister Sir Hugo Swire, backbench MPs Richard Graham and Bob Neill on Thursday night, only hours after the Prime Minister indicated parliament would choose between entering the backstop or prolonging the transition period after exit day.

The backstop plan is loathed by Brexiteers, who believe it keeps the UK too closely tied to Brussels, while Ms May insists it is only an insurance policy as the government plans to secure a trade deal before the backstop is needed. It has now been revealed of course that May misled the Commons about the nature of the backstop and, as her critics all pointed out, Britain could not leave the arrangement without the agreement of the EU, agreement that the government of Ireland would always veto.

Mr Graham, who sits on the Brexit Committee, said the backstop “was and remains the thing that gives colleagues the most concern”.'

EU To Reduce Dependence On US Dollar As Sanctions Hit Trade With Iran

Plans to reduce European Union dependence on the US dollar have been rumoured for a while now, as China's alternative to the Petrodollar continues to gain strength. The EU is not signing up to the move by Russia, China and the other BRICS bloc nations to replace the dollar but are thinking involvement with the emerging economies bid to break US economic hegemony will improve the 27 member Union's ability to run an independent foreign policy without having to fear US bullying through sanctions for opposing Washinton's attempts to dominate global political and economic events. The EU plan was unveiled on Wednesday by the European commission.

The proposal has gained support among European Union member states as companies in EU countries have felt presured to withdraw investments from Iran by the threat of punitive secondary sanctions from the US for any nation which permits its citizens or business community to trade with the Shi'ite Muslim theocracy.

The EU, unlike the US, wants to maintain the nuclear deal with Iran signed in 2015, but needs to deliver on its side of the bargain by increasing trade with Tehran. Less likely to be discussed in mainstream media is that European arms manufacturers, particularly those in Britain, Germany, France and, surprisingly perhaps, Sweden, will benefit greatly from a new arms race if they are in a position to supply both sides.

Iranian rulers are becoming impatient as the EU strives to create a financial mechanism to shield European exporters and importers from the effects of US sanctions on corporations, banks and individuals that continue to trade with Iran. US secondary sanctions can be applied on any European firm with links to the US market. I find this rather surprising as back in the 1960s when I studied economics, it was common knowledge that jurisdictions with lax trade regulation regimes like Panama or The Bahamas could be used to obfuscate paper trails and evade sanctions, tariffs and taxes.

The commission is perhaps reluctant to use Gibraltar's port facilities for trans - shipping goods bound eventually for Iran because of the uncertain position of The Rock post Brexit. Instead Brussels is focusing on increasing the use of the euro in energy markets by creating a financial vehicle to facilitate settlement of oil contracts in the single currency, thus bypassing sanctions by avoiding any dollar transactions. Along with other such bilateral agreement systems, the plan is part of a longer-term move to “de-dollarise” the world economy.

Measures included in the EU policy involve using the euro as default currency in energy contracts agreed between EU member states and non-EU countries, as well as the creation of euro-denominated price benchmarks for crude oil. The EU is one of the world’s largest energy importers.

The commission press release also suggests the EU must develop “a full range of trustworthy interest rate benchmarks” in and a fully integrated instant payment system acceptable in all financial markets. The bloc will also seek to develop the role of the euro in foreign exchange markets.

In launching the long-term plan, EU economic affairs commissioner, Pierre Moscovici, said: “A wider use of the euro in the global economy yields important potential for better protecting European citizens and companies against external shocks and making the international finance and monetary system more resilient.”

The commissioner added these plans came “at a time where the recent global trends, the emergence of new economic powers along with the development of new technologies are supporting a potential shift towards a more diversified and multipolar system of several global currencies”.

Responding to the EU announcement an Iranian official said:
“Based on the news I recently received and was confirmed by a European commissioner, from now on, the EU is going to ditch the US dollar and just use the euro in the financial transactions of all European oil deals with other countries,” said Iran’s nuclear chief, Ali Akbar Salehi, on Thursday.

Speaking to reporters, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) said the amount of these transactions is more than €300 billion. “Previously, the EU used to pay 85 percent of the money for the oil it purchased from other countries in US dollars, but now with this new mechanism, all the money will be paid in euros,” he said.

Once the mechanism takes effect, the US dollar will be isolated as a global currency, and the US will no longer be able to use dollars in the current dominating way, Salehi added.

His comments came one day after the EU commission presented its plan to reduce the dollar's overwhelming dominance of the global economy and to strengthen the role of the euro, particularly for energy transactions. There will be a lnee jerk reaction from the left of US politics, to blame Donald Trump for this development, the EU have already accused the Trump Administration of weaponising the reserve currency, although that is unfair because the US has used its position as holder of the reserve currency as a political weapon since the 1960s. In fact the move towards de-dolarisation, led by China, Russia and Iran, has been going on for some years now, the initial moves having been made early in the Obama era, though even before Obama took office there was widespread dissatisfaction with the way the USA used dollar dominance to influence political developments outside its borders. It has alredy attracted many trading partners, perhaps US economic belligerence is an attempt to combat this. If so it is the wrong approach.

European capitals have become increasingly frustrated with the global dominance of the dollar as a reserve currency, which hands the United States unparalleled diplomatic and economic power in a globalized world. This hostility was exacerbated when economic sanctions imposed on Russia after it's annexation of Crimea in 2014. Many European nations were hit harder by those sanctions than Russia.

France Spirals Into Chaos As Rebellion Against Incompetent Macron Government Gathers Momentum

France prepares for another weekend of violence and disruption. As revolutionary group The Gilets Jaunes (yellow vests) organise for another weekend of protests against the government of former Goldman Sachs office boy Emmanuel Macron, members of the French National Assembly are set to launch a No Confidence vote against the President and his government, which has has become plagued by plummeting popularity, rising costs of living, unpopular taxes and nationwide civil unrest.

Emails Siezed By UK Government Reveal Facebook’s Cutthroat Business Practices

Internal Facebook emails siezed last week by the UK Parliament in response to Mark Zuckerberg's comptempyuopus doismissal of a summons to attend a hearing with members of the select committee on data privacy, have been leaked by MP’s disgusted by what they contain. Apart from revealing Zuckerberg's belief that he and his organisation are above the law (which we all strongly suspected,) the email expose to piblic and legal scrutiny some of Facebook’s most anti-competitive business practices, including cutting off competitors’ access to their tools and in other cases, shutting down any possible competition altogether.

The U.K. lawmakers published 250 pages of internal Facebook documents after Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg refused to answer questions from a Parliamentary committee. The documents, confiscated from a Facebook client who was in the UK on business, have provided a deep insight into the inner workings of Facebook and how the company deals with competitors. They have also shown that the company is acutely aware their actions are illegal but choose to go ahead with them in order to turn a profit or gain market dominance.

In an email dated January 24 2013, Facebook’s Vice President of Global Operations and Media Partnerships, Justin Osofsky, wrote to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, saying:

Twitter launched Vine today which lets you shoot multiple short video segments to make one single,6-second video.

As part of their NUX, you can find friends via FB. Unless anyone raises objections, we will shut down their friends API access today.

We’ve prepared reactive PR, and I will let Jana know our decision.

The Facebook CEO replied very simply to Osofsky saying:

Yup, go for it.

Further documents reveal that the Facebook CEO also personally reviews lists of competitors and decides how they should be treated:

Strategic competitors: We maintain a small list of strategic competitors that Mark personally reviewed. Apps produced by the companies on this list are subject to a number of restrictions outlined below. Any usage beyond that specified is not permitted without Mark level sign-off.

Ad services: All developers, save strategic competitors (above), may use our ads services. The reciprocity for these services is clear: money in exchange for new or re-engaged users. In terms of oversight/policy enforcement, we follow the standard ads creative review process.

App services: All developers, save strategic competitors (above), may use our app services. The reciprocity for these services is clear: money in exchange for CPU, data storage and network bandwidth. In terms of oversight/policy enforcement, we will reactive handle any strategic competitors that we discover using these services.

Combined with the news that Facebook considered charging developers for access to user data, it seems that Facebook keeps a tighter hold over their platform than was previously believed.

Damian Collins, the chair of the Culture, Media and Sport select committee which released the documents, revealed the committee’s reasoning for doing so, stating that the committee felt that they have not “had straight answers from Facebook on these important issues,” which led to them releasing the documents.

Theresa May's New Contempt Of Parliament Scandal

On a day that saw her government defeated three times in House of Commons votes on key Brexit issues, a new scandal has erupted around Theresa May's dishonest and duplicitous mismanagement of the Brexit process. The Prime Minister has now been accused of holding secret weekly Brexit meetings with pro EU Cabinet ministers and civil servants of which no record has been made, sparking accusations of a “conspiracy to derail Brexit”. Political advisers to the Government are said to have been increasingly concerned about the meetings especially as May has increasingly sidelined elected MPs on her negotiating team and delegated responsibility for negotiations to rabidly pro EU civil servants such as Oliver 'Oily' Robbins. Mrs May’s Government has relied upon various ad hoc subcommittees to deal with Brexit since Article 50 was triggered in March 2017. But since the controversial Chequers summit this summer the Prime Minister has held weekly off-the-books meetings with her core (i,e, Remain supporting,) advisers and civil servants present. Of the secret gatherings, one source told the London Evening Standard: “In terms of democracy this feels like a scandal.” Other members of May's government are, like their boss, being caught out of lies they have told to try and hide the extent of their surrender to the EU on Brexit. Labour MP and ardent supporter Kate Hoey challened the Attorney General over comments made by the Secretary of State of Northern Ireland about the backstop arrangement if it is enforced after the implementation period. Conservative frontbencher Karen Bradley claimed last week legislation in Northern Ireland would remain in line with the UK if the Brexit backstop was implemented. Speaking in the House of Commons, Kate Hoey claimed the remarks from the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland were “not accurate”. She said: “The Attorney General has been very honest I think in the downside of this backstop. That’s even without the legal advice, so we dread what would actually be in it if we did see it. “Could I ask him about the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, who on Sunday in the Inside Northern Ireland politics with Mark Devenport, actually said ‘even if the backstop kicks in Great Britain will stick to the same rules as Northern Ireland’. “Would the Attorney General have a word with her because she is going around Northern Ireland on a tour and saying some things which are actually not accurate, and giving the people of Northern Ireland the very wrong impression about what this agreement means.” Mr Cox replied: “The regulatory regime in Great Britain will be a matter entirely for the Government of the United Kingdom." This echoed the comments made by The Prime Minister when she was questioned on the issue. Unfortunately as has now been revealed the so called backstop would leave Northern Ireland operating under EU jurisdiction and the UK could not terminate the agreement without the consent of all 27 EU member states, a move that Ireland's government in Dublin have promised they would always veto. This is perhaps the worst aspect of the sellout deal made in secret by Theresa May (it rhymes with betray,) with the EU. Greenteeth Elsewhere: [ The Original Boggart Blog] ... [ Writerbeat ] ...

ANGRYWITEMENISTAN

This post and the cartoon really sum up the hypocrisy of the liberal bansturbators. Though British I have come to know a lot of conservative Americans online. And I don't know any why want to ban political correctness, feminists, muslims, refugees, LGBTs etc. They just object to being told they have to support these things. Everybody should have the same rights and that includes the right to dissent.
I guess I am supposed to feel inulted by this? (cause I don't)... Seriously though, who is REALLY the party of "no" here? Ban guns, ban straws, ban large sodas, ban salt, ban speech... and on and on and on.
The only thing I'd change of the "No" list is Speakin' foreign.

G20 Elitists Club Teetering On The Edge Of The Abyss

Ten years after The G20 first convented to bring together around a conference table the heads of state and government of the world's largest economic powers and controllers of natural resources, the Group of 20 was doomed from the start. Russia and China were never going to agree to US economic hegemony, the European Union Nations were never going to accept Saudi Arabian human rights abuses and some of the third world nations were never going to be happy with the liberal democracies' obsession with LGBT rights.

For a while the group held together, though it was doomed from day one to start falling apart as son as global trading conditions started to get tough. At the latest G20 jolly, in Buenos Aires, the loud and clear message was the G20 and globalism are both on the wane as a forum for shaping economies and solving global problems. Set up in 2008 to regulate spiraling financial markets in the midst of the toxic debt crisis, the G20 format has managed to though when Angela Merkel or Barack Obama invited attendes to "All join hands and sing Kumbaya, fewer and fewer world leaders were willing to join in.

It's not that the idea of finding global solutions to global problems is a bad one, but that global problems require very different solutions in different parts of the globe. On top of this many of leaders sitting around the negotiating table have lost the political will to find such answers. President Donald Trump was elected leader of the USA was elected on a promise to 'Make America Great Again', which is not the extreme form of nationalism his opponents in the US claim, but nonetheless does not sit comfortably alongside leaders like Merkel or Emmanuel Macron, both of whom have recently asked citizens of the nations they lead to put the interests of people in other nations ahead of their own.

With Merkel's Germany facing a social crisis because of the stresses caused by her open doors immigration policy which has seen an influx of uneducated, semi - literate third world migrants whose lawless beaviour has led to the creation of no go zones for police and emergency services in cities and lage towns, while the failure of Marcon's presidency has plunged France into civil unrest as protests against rising prices, immigration, unemployment and falling standards of living havemorphed into violent riots in the srteets of big cities, these leaders remain in denial about the failure of globalism.

Isolation, nationalism and protectionism have all been resurgent since the financial crisis of 2008, as the alleged consequences of globalization that has widely been perceived as impoverishing working and middle classes while benefitting the rich and corporate business.

The de facto leader of the movement to national interest is US president, Donald Trump. He is an avowed deconstructivist, — according to his critics someone who wants to tear down the existing order because he doesn't think it works in his favor. Such criticism is unfair, all national leaders in nations that claim to be democracies are, in theory, elected to put the interests of their citizens first, nevermind the rest of the world as Angela Merkel said in different words recently. Merkel however is clinging to power by her fingertips, at the head of a coalition that is too weak to get any controvesial legislation though, simply because she is unable to accept that with German prosperity falling, her time is over, for the sake of her party and her country she should have step down. And yet Hausfrau - Volksfuhrer Merkel does not see the hypocrisy of asking German voters to put the interests of people in third world countries ahead of their own as she puts her personal interests ahead of her country's and its peoples'. Macron too, though in power for less than two years, has seen his popularity fall in polls to unprecedented lows. This is partly because of his obsesion with telling French voters that foreigners are more important to him than hiw own fellow citizens, as those fellow citizens struggle to make ends meeet due to his tax increases and the inflation his policies on top of EU policies are causing.

Merkel and Macron are the outliers however. Donald Trump, in his isolationism and protectionism is far from alone.

Russian president Vladimir Putin, China's Chairman Xi, the Saudi crown prince Mohammed (Mad Mo) bin Salaman, the Turkish autocrat Erdogan, at the G20 table don't have much respect for international law which they preceive as favouring western or Christian interests. And more leader joining the "My country first" club. Italy's Matteo Salvini has challenged the EU over its right to reject Italy's budget. In Mexico, a populist has just taken office. In Brazil, a professed right-wing radical will be moving into the presidential palace come January. These changes, along with the possible collapse of Merkel and Macron's governments make a grim outlook for globalists between now and the next G20 summit in Osaka, Japan.

The German chancellor, the Canadian prime minister, the French president and EU representatives — those who waved the flag of multiculturalism and globalism, in Buenos Aires are facing an increasingly lonely stuggle should they survive another year in office.

Even within the EU, populism and isolationism are spreading. After Brexit, followed by rebellions against Brussels diktat in Poland, Hungary, and Spain, the most recent example of this shift is the populist government in Italy.

Reading the thin communique adopted by G20 members, it appears that this assembly representing two thirds of humanity is little more than an empty shell. Admittedly, the leaders did commit to reforming the international trade system, although moves led by Rusia and China to replace the petrodollar as the main currency for world trade forced that decision on them. But in the meantime, members of the G20 impose punitive tariffs on each other in an attempt to get a bigger piece of the global economic pie. There's certainly a wide gulf between theory and practice.

Mass Arrests In Paris As "Gilets Jaunes" Protests Go Into Third Week, Spread To Belgium

gilets jaunes protest parisGilets Jaunes protestors, identifiable by their yellow vests, trash cars and vandalise property in Paris

As the violent protests of the so - called Gilets Jaunes (Yellow vests,) which have spread to most major cities in France, with protestors angry at the policies of elitist president Emmanuel Macron, which they claim ignore the interests of the working and middle classes and favour the elites and the globalist corporations who support the move towards a federasl European superstate.

French police had to use tear gas and water cannon after thousands of "yellow vest" activists marched into the Champs Élysées today for a third weekend of protests against Macron, who after his election vowed he would rule in the manner a Roman God, and his meritocratic government. Over 122 arrests have been made in Paris and many more in yellow vest protests elsewhere in France.

Chanting "On the way to Macron's resignation," the protesters were hit with tear gas and high presure water jests as riot police struggled to contain Saturday's violence, which saw cars set on fire, paint thrown on officers, and several injuries. Protesters attempted to breach barricades blocking the path to the presidential palace on Saturday morning; "lighting fires, throwing rocks and spraying police officers with vivid yellow paint.

Video of Gilets Jaunes protest in France (RT)


Originally formed to protest rising fuel prices, the "yellow vest" protesters have evolved into a wider demonstration against President Emmanuel Macron's government and European Union policies such as federalisation and 'open borders' uncontrolled immigration in recent weeks. After French interior minister Christophe Castaner somewhat lamely tried to blame the "far right" for the protests, the interior ministry has now said the participants are "extreme-right and far-left demonstrators," according to The Guardian. They are completely in denial of course, the protests are a gress roots uprising against a government of Paris - centric bureaucrats and a president totally out of touch with the concerns of French people

Some commentators around Europe are speculating that after years of political establishments ignoring the weight of public opinion building against the increasingly authoritarian policies of the European Union, this wave of protests might herald the beninning of a mass anti - EU movement that could spread across Europe and force the EU to abandon grandiose plans to force member states to cede sovereignty to Brussels as the bureaucrats create a federal superstate dominated by Germany and France.

If they ever thought the Poles, Italians, Austrians, Dutch, Spanish and other nations were going to agree to that, the federalists are beyond stupid, they are insane.

The gilets jaunes protests are currently posing the most dangerous to date challenge to Emmanuel Macron’s leadership. Hundreds of thousands of protesters have barricaded roads and blockaded toll-booths and fuel depots across France over the past two weeks, complaining that Macron’s pro-business tax policy was unfair and that people on low-income jobs could not make ends meet.

Motorists initially demonstrated against a fuel tax increase two weeks ago, but the protesters, who have no leader and have largely organised themselves online, now have much broader demands and further actions have followed. - The Guardian

Unsubstantiated claims that "more radical groups" have infiltrated the grassroots movement have been circulated by government supporters and reported in pro - EU mainstream media, while Interior Minister Castaner tweeted that "1,500 troublemakers" had overtaken what started out as "200 peaceful demonstrators." The replies to his tweet suggest people aren't buying it. The French know this is not far left or far right splinter groups, but the people of France letting the delusional M. Macron know they will not sacrifice their lifestyles to his dream of a politically integrated Europe.

Meanwhile the protests have spread to Brussels, Belgium where Yellow Vest activists burned police vans after the police fired a water cannon at the crowd. Protesters in Belgian cities and towns burned police vans after officers fired water cannon to disperse violent members of the "yellow vest" movement which spilled over from France.

Inflation is hitting people hard in Europe and this is going to spread fast. It has nothing to do with oil or immigration but with taxation in general plus the fact that in 2008 the average salary stopped growing while costs went up about 5 to 10% a year and now people just can't manage anymore. These are the real reasons many people in Britain voted in the 2016 referendum to leave the EU. Since that vote the UK's political elites have been desperately trying to thwart the democratically expressed will of the people. If tyhey succeed what is now happening in France and Belgium (and less violently in Germany,) will happen in Britain

The average rent of a small appartment in Brussels and Paris is €1200 euro's a month, fuel cost is about €3 to 400 a month, food costs are about €4 to 500 a month. And when you know the average salary is around €2,200 a month after tax, many people are finding they need to take on a second job, not for luxury but because they can't get by. In London housing costs are even higher though fuel tends to be a little less expensive and earnings slightly higher.

Young people are also getting upset against retered people because theis pensions are often higher then what they make in a month and wherever you go, it's the older people who profit and you rarely see younger people.

And it's going to get worse! Predicted price increases on food, clothing nd fuel this year could be as high as 20% and none of them will be able to carry that even with a second job. And the lack of quality time is making them depressed.

They've got nothing to lose and nothing to look at in the future.

And our governments are broke. Beyond broke!

If this movement can gain momentum across the continent it could explode and spell the end of Cultural Marxist globalism.

Brexit is a DISASTER but ‘not for the British'

‘Germany Must EXIT THE EURO!’ Says Investment Expert

Holger Schmitz, CEO of Schmitz & Partner AG, said the British “should be happy to have turned their backs” on the Brussels club, while for German savers Brexit is a disaster. He also hit out at EU chiefs for “overlooking the impact of Brexit on the EU’s” strongest economies, which could enable EU member states heavily in debt to “govern undisturbed in the future”, meaning the bloc would instead become a “transfer union”.

As the EU’s strongest economy, Germany would become the “cash cow” to the Union, he warned.

Writing for DASInvestment, Mr Schmitz said: “The structural deficits of the confederation of states are becoming increasingly apparent and can not be remedied. In addition, there is no political will in the southern European countries for urgently needed economic reforms. READ ALL >>>

Researcher Warns: Algos Are "Using And Even Controlling Us!"

Researcher Dionysios Demetis has published a warning to everyone that “we are setting ourselves up for technological domination,” claiming algorithms are increasingly “manipulating and even controlling” human beings.

Humans are surrounded by algorithms and Demetis is not as thrilled as technology fanboys about the future direction of technology and its grip on humanity. “Our exploration led us to the conclusion that, over time, the roles of information technology and humans have been reversed,” Demetis, a professor at the Center for Systems Studies at Hull University in Yorkshire England, wrote in an essay for The Conversation. “In the past, we humans used technology as a tool. Now, technology has advanced to the point where it is using and even controlling us.” This is not the first time Demetis has tried to warn humanity of the problems with advanced technology either. Demetis built on a paper he published last year with Allen Lee, a professor at Virginia Commonwealth University, in the Journal of the Association for Information Systems. The researcher also contends that we are in fact “deeply affected by them in unpredictable ways,” and humans made it that way. “We have progressively restricted our own decision-making capacity and allowed algorithms to take over.” READ ALL at Zero Hedge

EU: Now Telling Europeans What To Think

by Judith Bergman, Gatestone Institute

The first European Media Literacy Week, an initiative of the European Union, will take place March 18-22 in various European cities. The week is a new initiative by the European Commission, putatively "to underline the societal importance of media literacy and promote media literacy initiatives and projects across the EU". The European Commission explains its policy of strengthening 'media literacy' within the EU -- which could have been a noble and useful initiative -- the following way:

"With the rapid rise of digital technology and its increasing use in business, education and culture, it is important to ensure everyone can understand and engage with digital media.

"Media literacy is vital for economic growth and job creation. Digital technologies are a key driver of competitiveness and innovation in the media, information, and communication technology sectors."

As part of its "Digital Single Market" strategy, the European Commission addsflimsily:

"Media literacy concerns different media (broadcasting, radio, press), different distribution channels (traditional, internet, social media) and addresses the needs of all ages... A high level of media literacy is a key factor to enable citizens to make informed decisions in the digital age. Media literacy is a pre-requisite for a vibrant, modern democracy."

One does not have to scratch the surface much, however, before it appears that at least certain aspects of the European Commission's Media Literacy policy are less about enlightening citizens, than about heavy-handedly guiding them on what to think.

Emmanuel Macron says Brexit presents a 'danger' to EU, demands 'minimum European wage' that would bankrupt poor nations

Emmanuel Macron has called for a "minimum European wage" across the EU and a guarantee that workers will receive "the same pay in the same workplace". The French President set out plans for a "road map to European renewal" in the wake of the Brexit vote, which he said represents a "danger" to the future of the European Union. He said that the UK's decision to leave the EU symbolised a crisis in which the EU was failing to respond to "its peoples' needs for protection from the major shocks of the modern world".

Internal Facebook Leak Reveals Global Bribery Scheme To Soften Data Privacy Laws

A leak of internal Facebook documents reveals that the company has conducted a global lobbying campaign to against data privacy legislation, targeting politicans around the world with promises of investments and incentives, according to The Guardian.

The Guardian reported Facebook:
• Lobbied politicians across Europe in a strategic operation to head off “overly restrictive” GDPR legislation. They include extraordinary claims that the Irish prime minister said his country could exercise significant influence as president of the EU, promoting Facebook’s interests even though technically it was supposed to remain neutral. • Used chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg’s feminist memoir Lean In to “bond” with female European commissioners it viewed as hostile. • Threatened to withhold investment from countries unless they supported or passed Facebook-friendly laws.

Trump Vows Executive Order Removing Fed Cash from Colleges Which Don't Defend Free Speech

Daily Caller, 3 March, 2019

President Donald Trump announced Saturday at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) that he will be signing an executive order protecting free speech on college campuses.
The president invited Hayden Williams, a conservative activist with The Leadership Institute, to speak on the CPAC stage. Williams was assaulted last month while tabling for Turning Point USA at University of California, Berkeley, but promised that students would continue to defend the president so long as he defended them.
“These students do it because they have a love of our nation and freedom and, frankly, a love for you Mr. President,” Williams said of conservative activists on campuses. READ ALL

NHTSA Investigating Two Tesla Crashes Days After Two More Driver Deaths

The USA's National Highways & Transport Safety Association (NHTSA) is investigating Tesla cars yet again according to our sources in the USA, after two new separate fatal accidents that took place in Florida over the past week and a half. This new investigation comes while legal arguments abouit a spate of fatal and near fatal accident involving Tesla cars last year. A spokesperson for the NHTSA said that the agency was in the midst of an "ongoing investigation" involving both crashes and that the agency would "take additional actions if appropriate".

The NHTSA has the authority to demand a recall models if it believes a design defect or technical fault poses a risk to the public. The NTSB, also investigating the second crash, makes safety recommendations. The NHTSA and NTSB are investigating the role of Tesla’s Autopilot in fatal accidents and numerous battery fires in Teslas where the betteries have reignited hours after being doused by firefighters, following crashes crashes. This problem, though to relate to the technical dodge Tesla have used to claim better battery life than rivals, occurre in one of the recent accidents.

We reported on the first accident just about a week ago, where a Tesla in Davie, Florida burst into flames after striking a tree, killing its driver. READ ALL at Reuters >>>

We desperately need to be honest about the links between race and gang violence

Trevor Phillips, 2 March, 2019

Anne Longfield’s report, published yesterday, into childhood violence and vulnerability asserted that some 27,000 under-19s identify themselves as gang members. More than 300,000 admit to knowing someone who is in a gang. In the past week alone, nine boys have died in English cities, mostly from stab wounds after vicious, coordinated attacks. NHS officials report that the number of non-lethal assaults of this kind is now running into the thousands. Some of those involved with gangs, according to the Commissioner, have yet to see their tenth birthday..

GP ‘bribes’ to diagnose dementia undermine patients’ trust in doctors

Paying GPs to identify dementia undermines patients’ trust in doctors, a study suggests. In recent years, health officials have introduced a series of schemes which typically pay family doctors £55 a head for every patient classed as having the condition.

The initiatives came despite concern from some GPs that they would be seen as “bribes” which could sway doctors towards misdiagnosis.Researchers from the University of York examined more than 7,000 practices in England to examine the impact of the schemes, which began to be introduced in 2013.

EU Hails Social Media Crackdown On Hate Speech

FROM DW.DE

EU officials on Monday hailed progress in the fight against online hate speech, saying major technology companies have significantly increased their ability to combat the phenomenon.

"Companies are now assessing 89 percent of flagged content within 24 hours, and promptly act to remove it when necessary," said Andrus Ansip, European Commission vice president for the digital single market. "This is more than twice as much when compared to 2016."

Technology companies, such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Microsoft, are removing 72 percent of flagged content within that period, up from 28 percent in 2016. EU officials said a Code of Conduct to tackle online speech established that year has proved successful, but noted more needed to be done.

However, Critics have described legislation forcing technology companies to delete content as an attempt at censorship. But EU officials on Monday said that while the Code of Conduct was voluntary at the moment, Brussels reserved the right to enact regulation to combat hate speech.

Macron will 'HAVE TO GO' if he loses referendum - shock warning to president

from Daily Express

EMMANUEL MACRON is said to be considering a referendum to address key issues raised by yellow vest protesters, however, critics warn the embattled French President will “have to go” if he loses the vote. The 41-year-old leader is “considering this possibility as a way out of the yellow vest crisis,” a high-ranking government source told Le Journal du Dimanche.

It is understood a referendum is being considered for May 26, the same day as the European parliament elections, and the Elections Office has already contacted printers and paper suppliers in the event of a snap vote.

The referendum would, among other things, ask voters whether they want to reduce the number of lawmakers and limit the number of terms they can serve to prevent career politicians from clinging on to power, both campaign pledges by M Macron.

While one of the main demands of the yellow vests is for popular votes to be held on key policy decisions, Mr Macron’s political opponents have warned against rushing into a referendum, which they say will do little to dilute popular rage. READ ALL >>>

Al-Hijrah school was instructed to end the unlawful practice by the Court of Appeal in 2017. However, Luke Tryl, director of corporate strategy at Ofsted, the government body charged with carrying out school inspections, says the West Midlands school is still contravening gender segregation rules.

Angela Merkel makes thinly-veiled dig at Brexit chaos in Davos

Angela Merkel has taken a dig at Brexit as she praised the founders of global institutions such as the EU as people 'who knew what they were doing'.
Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos today, the German chancellor said she feared the 'knowledge and insight' of politicians who set up international bodies after World War II would be forgotten.
In her speech - which could be her last appearance at the annual event - Merkel made a vigorous defence of international institutions such as the International Monetary Fund and the United Nations.
She said Germany and the EU were 'dependent' on a good relationship with Britain but said it was partly 'up to Britain' to ensure one.

Merkel is correct up to a point, after WW2 the European Common Market was set up by German former Nazis, with French and Belgian collaborators who saw it as a way to build The Fourth Reich.

Belgian Senator Blasts Elites over Consequences of Mass Migration

Dr Destexhe discussed his book and explained his concerns in a recent interview with French newspaper Le Figaro.

As Bloomberg reports, transgender troops have been serving openly since June 2016, when President Barack Obama’s administration began lifting a longstanding prohibition. Opponents of the ban say reinstating it would violate the Constitution’s equal protection clause.
The justices, voting 5-4, put on hold lower court decisions that had blocked the administration’s planned ban from taking effect.

The Ironies of Illegal Immigration

With Mexico having a population of about 130 million, that amounts to some 44 million would-be immigrants.

Are you or a loved one suffering from toxic masculinity? Know the warning signs so you can seek help:
Even the faintest whisper of facial hair - If you have a mustache, schedule a check-up. If you find a goatee on your face, consider going into the emergency room. If you have a full-grown beard, well, it's probably too late for you.
A belief that men and women are at least a little bit different - Should you be infected with the cancerous idea that men and women are even the slightest bit different from one another, you could have toxic masculinity. If you're a woman who believes this, then you suffer from an even worse disease called internalized misogyny.

Failing IPCC Ramps up Climate Hysteria with New Doom Litany Report

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has issued its latest Summary for Policy Makers – and it’s the usual farrago of dubious science, wailing hysteria and worryingly eco-fascistic policy prescriptions.

Sea levels are rising. [As they have been, by the way, at the same harmless pace, for centuries]
The crisis is so dire that even if all the countries stick to their Paris Accord commitments, it still won’t be enough to stop the planet heating by 2 degrees C or more.
Drastic lifestyle changes must be made, drastic carbon emissions cuts must be implemented to stave off further disaster
$2.4 trillion must be spent by 2035 on sustainable energy projects such as wind and solar
Climate-related risks to health, livelihoods, food security, water supply, human security, and economic growth are projected to increase as the planet warms
Vector borne diseases such as malaria and dengue fever will likely increase

One observer – Benny Peiser of the Global Warming Policy Foundation – describes it as the IPCC’s “Hail Mary”: its last, desperate shot at trying to scare a world which just doesn’t care any more.

The reason increasingly few of us believe all “last chance to save the planet” stuff is first that we’ve heard it too many times before, secondly that it hasn’t been supported by real-world evidence and thirdly because thanks to the internet and sites like this we’re all better informed.

Scientists Sound Alarm Over DARPA Plans To Spread Viruses Using Insects

A team of scientist sounds the alarm in a new Science Policy Forum report about a mysterious US government program that is developing genetically modified viruses that would be dispersed into the environment using insects. The virus-infected or 'Frankenstein' insects are being developed as countermeasures against potential natural and engineered threats to the US food supply.

The program is operated by the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) could be viewed as an attempt to develop an entirely new class of bioweapons that would prompt other nations to seek similar weapons, they cautioned.

Currency war can end global US dollar dominance & those who own gold have power

The world is facing a currency war and the only hedge against the crash of the US dollar is real gold, a precious metal analyst has said in an interview with RT.

Verhofstadt: ‘Not Acceptable’ for UK to Limit Immigration After Brexit

The EU continues on its path of negotiating by trying to command Britain on the Bexit process. In the latest attempt to humiliate Britain, European Parliament Brexit co-ordinator Guy Verhofshit said, "it is not acceptable for the UK to control its own immigration policy after Brexit and throughout the so-called “transition period”.

There will also be a "crisis in British politics" if the British Parliament votes down any Brexit deal agreed by Theresa May, said Guy Verhofstadt, predicting another general election. Clearly this ugly little Euronazi Belgian toad seems to think the EU will retain control over all policy areas it had before the vote to leave.

Speaking to the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show, Verhofstadt said a trade deal would not be finalised before the divorce date and insisted no changes could be made to fee movement rules during the transition period.

"It’s not acceptable for us that rules will continue without change for financial services, for goods, for whatever other business and only for the citizens their situation will change," he said. Does the clown not understand the situation has changed.

Smoooth face crapaud Michel Barnier, the European Commission’s chief Brexit negotiator, has also been pushing for mass migration to continue after Brexit, contradicting an agreement struck with the UK in December. These ivory tower dwelling bureaucrats do not have to live among the third world scumbags they are intent of filling Europe with of course.

Last month, a report found that a million more migrants could come to the UK and stay permanently if free movement rights are extended for two years. Remember, free movement means anyone within the EU, not just bona fide citizens of EU member nations.

Telegram Could Raise A Staggering $2 Billion In Biggest-Ever ICO; Is It Just Another Scam?

Telegram, A messaging app popular with cryptocurrency enthusiasts and ISIS recruiters, has completed its presale of Gram tokens, raising a stunning $850 million from VIP investors from Silicon Valley and crypto community. That sum alone qualifies it as the largest ICO ever - far surpassing the ~$230 million raised by Tezos, which is now mired in litigation over its failure to keep many of its promises to investors...

The category of Internet based startups known as 'Unicorns', that is companies without an established revenue stream, any product beyond an app, or a viable business model, are inexplicably successful at raising vast amounts of cash by floating the business in specialised tech markets but have very poor track records at actually taking the cash raised, investing it in their idea and turning it into a functioning business.

Telegram's founders have insisted however, that the presale is only the beginning: If TechCrunch's calculations are correct, the company could raise close to $2 billion after sales are opened to the public.

That's an enormous sum for a company that has no revenue, especially when the founders insist their service should be kept free to users - and free of ads - for as long as possible. Telegram was founded by CEO Pavel Durov and brother Nikolai, two of the creators of VKontakt, better known in the west as the "Russian Facebook."

Citing a document submitted to the SEC earlier this week which purports to show the money raised by Telegram is "for the development of the TON Blockchain, the development and maintenance of Telegram Messenger and the other purposes," TechCrunch points out that the Gram tokens are described in the document as "purchase agreements for cryptocurrency." The whole thing looks so dodgy and insubstantial it is beyond belief that people are putting real money into it.

And while some investors might reassured that Telegram is apparently complying with vague regulations surrounding ICOs, which were released last summer when the agency released its report on the DAO hack, one Forbes columnist warns that investors who expect their investment - or Telegram - to turn a profit may be sadly mistaken.

Don’t Believe Mainstream Media: Russia Didn’t Attack US Troops in Syria

On February 16 Bloomberg published an article headlined: "Don’t Be Fooled: Russia Attacked U.S. Troops in Syria." It was the start of the latest Russophobic shitstorm unleashed by the 'liberals' of mainstrteam media and social media in the USA against Russia.

To give this story a little context, although under international law U.S. troops are in Syria illegally a U.S. led coalition purportedly supporting kurdish independence fighters (but really still poursuing barack Obama's aim of deposing the Assad regime,) conducted air and artillery strikes against what were reported to be pro-government forces in Syria on February 7, 2018, allegedly in response to an “unprovoked attack” launched by these pro-regime forces. Not long after, reports stories filtered out of The Pentagon via the usual suspects that significant numbers of Russian personnel were included in the over 100 dead and wounded, though Russia has since denied this at first. As the evidence began to mount, the accepted version of events on both sides was that those involved were Russian mercenaries and contractors, not official troops.

When asked about the incident initially, U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis said he had no idea why they [pro-government forces] would attack there, the forces were known to be there, obviously the Russians knew.

"We have always known that there are elements in this very complex battle space that the Russians did not have, I would call it, control of," he added.

Bloomberg added, "there is overwhelming evidence that those Russian contractors were working at the behest of the Kremlin. What’s more, the Russians knew U.S. military personnel were in Deir Ezzor, which has been part of successive agreements to separate, or ‘deconflict,’ forces fighting in Syria."

The U.S. provided air cover for Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to retain a substantial portion of this area in 2017 and retains its military presence there in order to enable SDF’s occupation to continue.

If Syrian forces, backed by Russian troops (whether they are official military personnel or iregular mercenaries, decide to launch an attack to retake a Syrian oil field from rebels, it is not the U.S. that is under the attack. The U.S. military presence, as this news blog has always maintained, is an illegal invading force that has been attacking Syria since 2014 without any legal basis for its operations, and continues as an illegal military presence in order to carry out its illegal dangerous foreign policy agenda of removing the legitimate governmet of Syria from power. It wouldn’t matter if the U.S. had one soldier or a hundred thousand on the ground in Syria, Russia’s presence has been sanctioned under international law and America’s hasn’t.

PROOF that vaccines target blacks for depopulation

Scientific research paper reveal infertility chemical inserted into vaccines for African women

A paper, published in the open access journal Scientific Research under thetitle "HCG Found in WHO Tetanus Vaccine in Kenya Raises Concern in the Developing World," Authored by John W. Oller, Christopher A. Shaw, Lucija Tomljenovic, Stephen K. Karanja, Wahome Ngare, Felicia M. Clement and Jamie Ryan Pillette, not only appears to confirm the widespread 'conspiracy theory'that a contraceptive chemical was deliberately introduced into vaccines injected into African women in Kenya. The authors also name the actual chemical used.

Here’s the full abstract from the study, word for word (bolding emphasis added):

In 1993, WHO announced a “birth-control vaccine” for “family planning”. Published research shows that by 1976 WHO researchers had conjugated tetanus toxoid (TT) with human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) producing a “birth-control” vaccine. Conjugating TT with hCG causes pregnancy hormones to be attacked by the immune system. Expected results are abortions in females already pregnant and/or infertility in recipients not yet impregnated.

Repeated inoculations prolong infertility. Currently WHO researchers are working on more potent anti-fertility vaccines using recombinant DNA. WHO publications show a long-range purpose to reduce population growth in unstable “less developed countries”. By November 1993 Catholic publications appeared saying an abortifacient vaccine was being used as a tetanus prophylactic. In November 2014, the Catholic Church asserted that such a program was underway in Kenya. Three independent Nairobi accredited biochemistry laboratories tested samples from vials of the WHO tetanus vaccine being used in March 2014 and found hCG where none should be present.

In October 2014, 6 additional vials were obtained by Catholic doctors and were tested in 6 accredited laboratories. Again, hCG was found in half the samples. Subsequently, Nairobi’s AgriQ Quest laboratory, in two sets of analyses, again found hCG in the same vaccine vials that tested positive earlier but found no hCG in 52 samples alleged by the WHO to be vials of the vaccine used in the Kenya campaign 40 with the same identifying batch numbers as the vials that tested positive for hCG.

Given that hCG was found in at least half the WHO vaccine samples known by the doctors involved in administering the vaccines to have been used in Kenya, our opinion is that the Kenya “anti-tetanus” campaign was reasonably called into question by the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association as a front for population growth reduction.

Let there be no mistaking the conclusion reached by the authors of this published science paper. Vaccination programa are a front for population growth reduction. They have unveiled all the following shocking truths that the mainstream media absolutely refuses to publish:

1) Tetanus vaccines are used as a “medical front” for depopulation vaccines.

2) The program is administered in conjunction with “public health” initiatives engineered by the World Health Organization.

3) The goal of this program is the depopulation of blacks in Africa.

4) The hCG infertility chemical used in this genocidal “vaccine violence” against black women causes a woman’s body to turn against its own unborn child, attacking it as a foreign invader, causing a spontaneous abortion.

These shocking but true revelations confirm what Natural News has been accurately reporting for years: Namely, that vaccines have been weaponized against humanity and are deliberately laced with depopulation chemicals before being injected into the young women of ethnic groups which are targeted for population reduction. While this news blog fully agrees there is an urgent need for birth control in their world areas where a population explosion over the past fifty years means populations have now reached unsustainable levels, our libertarian stance insists this reduction must be achieved through education and not imposed by interfering wester do-gooderfuckers like Bill Gates.


Scientists create human-sheep chimera with hopes of affordable organ transplants

A team of scientists has grown hybrid embryos in the womb of a sheep that contain human stem cells, moving the sci-fi idea of developing human organs inside animals one step closer to reality, and sparking ethical concerns.

The development could potentially save thousands lives among people who are in a need of vital organ transplants. Many patients die before they reach to the top of a queue, but scientists have long claimed organs like a pancreas for example, grown inside a pig, sheep or some other animal, could possibly not only save a life but also cure a chronic illness such Type 1 Diabetes.

This week, the team from Stanford University announced they had grown a sheep embryo injected with adult human stem cells for 28 days, including 21 days inside a sheep mother. The news was revealed at a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Austin, Texas, the Guardian reports. The experiment had to be terminated, as U.S. law forbids developing cross-species embryos, called chimera, for more than 28 days.

Researchers had already created the first human-pig hybrid. The major difference this time is they achieved a much higher ratio of human cells to animal cells in the hybrid embryo, which is one human cell to about 10,000 sheep cells, according to Dr. Pablo Ross from the University of California.

To prevent the natural abortion of the unnatural embryo and create the part-human, part-animal chimera, the researchers use a gene-editing technique. First, they deleted genes needed for developing a certain organ in an animal embryo, then they injected human stem cells to fill the void. In 2010, Japanese scientists were the first to use this method to create a mouse and rat chimera, where the rat cells were introduced into a mouse to form a missing pancreas.

Last year, the same team that is now working on a sheep embryo, announced that it had, for the most part, cured diabetes in mice after transplanting a mouse pancreas it had grown in a rat.

There’s still a long way to go until this could be possible to replicate on humans, the researchers said. Unlike the rats or mice, both sheep and pigs have organs similar in size to those of a human.

"It could take five years or it could take 10 years but I think eventually we will be able to do this," the study’s co-author Hiromitsu Nakauchi of Stanford University said.

GM babies? How About The Frankenstein Lobby Try A Bit Of Honesty And Call It Eugenics
As the British Parliament debated legalising the use of techniques to create three parent babies and the dishonest champions of scientific fascism claim is is a perfectly safe development to remove faulty genes from humanity and in no way similar to programs with the same aim carried out in Nazi Germany, we challenge them to be honest and admit what they propose is Eugenics, a morally repugnant quest to create a master race. And all three main political parties support it.

Transhumanism and Eugenics
We have said many times that the science community is at war with humanity. Scientists are out of control, evry day we hear of some new scheme to try to control nature, be it human nature or the climate. Given what we ought to have learned from all previous attempts to control nature we can only conclude that scientists are insane psychos willing to risk destroying life to show off how clever they are.
Transhumanism: Join The Resistance
Transhumanism, the creation of - or turning us into - part human, part machine cyborgs is generating a lot of discussion and a lot of spontaneous ejaculations in the scientific community as they contemplate having their brains replaced by a computer. There are no limits on the ambitions of scientists fantasies, they even envisage creating robots that can interbreed with us, but how much is realistic?
Transhumanism: They will get under your skin
We seem to be talking a lot about transhumanism, the process of turing us into human - animal or human -machine hybrids recently. The Daily Stirer thinks such technological visions are nothing more than the fantasies of sick minds, but politicians and corporate leaders, ever eager for more power and control, seem willing to stump up infintie funding. Technology and Transhumanism
Prof Mark Post, a researcher at the University of Maastricht, has spent several years developing a technique for growing meat in the lab. Yesterday, he unveiled the product of his work: a petri-dish beefburger, grown from stem cells. Genetically, it is beef, but it has never seen a cow. The eye-watering price tag represents the cost of the whole project (Google’s Sergey Brin was picking up the bill). The shamburger was cooked via a live video stream on the internet, and was pronounced as basically meat-like (if lacking salt and fat) by a panel of chefs, who for some reason ate it without ketchup.

Artificial Intelligence: Will It Kill Human Society?
The media, the so called 'experts' and politicians hail every technological advance as if it will btransport us from reality to a utopian paradise. but does Artificial Intelligence and related internet and computer technology pose theats to human society that far outweigh any possible advantages? Whateve, Google plan to put machines in our place on top of the food chain.

Is Technology Creating Physical and Psychological Hazards In The Digital Age?
Scientific research used to be the area of work that trailblazers, those with an unquenchable desire for new experience and a hyperactive sense of adventure wanted to be involved in. Now those who label themselves 'scientists' seem to have become the high priests of an ultra - conservative religion, determined at all costs to block progess that may lead to understanding that the dogmas of the past are just wrong

The Mummers: The Controlling system And The Illusion Of Freedom
We live in a world of deception, where truth is an ephemeral thing, slippery as an eel and shadowy as a spectre. What we are expercted to perceive as reality is just spin and misinformation designed to ensure the elite maintain their control. There's eff all you can do just get on with your life, say the shills for big government and authoritarianism. But are we really nothing more than slaves of the system?

Italians Horrified As Immigrants Barbecue Dog At Welcome Center

by Arthur Foxake, 16 February, 2016

Left - wing Italian animal rights activists are finding themselves somewhat conflicted over a news story from a refugee centre that broke this week. White left wing dogma prohibits criticism of immigrant or any people of the dark skinned races, news of a man's attempts to barbecue a dog at an immigrant welcome center in southern Italy have shocked Italian animal lovers, while spokespeople for migrants insist the practice is normal where they come from.

Members of the Carabinieri, an Italian para - military police force, intervened after receiving an alarm call from an employee of the center who had witnessed a 29-year-old Nigerian man preparing a barbecue feat in which the butchered dog was the main course at the center in Vibo Valentia, in the Italian region of Calabria.

The man had succeeded in skinning and chopping up the canine and was in the process of grilling it for himself and some friends when he was stopped by armed police officers. The young woman who called the police is also a volunteer at a pro-animal organization in the area.

Explaining to police that such a practice is “normal where we come from,” the migrant insisted that he didn’t kill the dog but had found it dead by the side of the road and had decided to grill it (which makes the act even more disgusting.) He also pleaded ignorance of Italian laws forbidding eating cats and dogs. Police transferred the migrant to a different welcome center, located in the former Hotel Miragolfo in the nearby town of Nicotera.

Among countries of origin, Nigeria accounts for the largest single group of migrants entering Italy at present, with nearly twice as many (15.7 percent) Nigerians entering Italy during 2017 as those from Guinea, the second largest immigrant group by country of provenance (8.4 percent). Note, there are hardly any genuine refugees fleeing conflict zones in Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan and Iraq among the arrivals so we should drop the pretence that these savages are refugees.

Nigeria has been the focus of much local media attention in recent weeks, with reports of growth of a "ruthless" Nigerian mafia on Italian soil, and the brutal murder and dismemberment of an 18-year-old Italian girl, Pamela Mastropietro, allegedly at the hands of three Nigerian migrants.

Mastropietro’s dismembered corpse was discovered earlier this month in two suitcases outside the central Italian town of Macerata, but was missing her neck, heart and genitals. I suppose we should be grateful they didn't try to eat her too.

Vice News Celebrates 'No Whites' Vacation Program (Because Racism is Bad, OK)

The virtue signalling of these American 'liberals' just gets crazier and more hypocriticall all the time.

To paraphrase Malcolm X, the white liberal differs from the fascist only in one respect: the liberal is more deceitful than the conservative and more hypocritical than the fascist. Both want absolute power, but the white liberal is the one who has perfected the art of posing as the friend and benefactor of minorities, and this winning their allegiance, and support, the white liberal is able to use minorities as a pawn or tool in this political agenda.

Belgian court orders Facebook to stop collecting data on citizens, threatens fines of up to $125mn

Facebook is in trouble again with a European regulator for ignoring local laws. A court in Belgium has imposed an order preventing Facebook from continuing to collect data about the country's citizens, and compelling them to delete information already in their posession. The order threatens to fine the cybersnooper network €250,000 a day if it fails to comply.

In the ruling, the court deemed that Facebook does not properly inform users of what information it is collecting from them. "Facebook informs us insufficiently about gathering information about us, the kind of data it collects, what it does with that data and how long it stores it," the court said, determining the social network had broken privacy laws. "It also does not gain our consent to collect and store all this information." The court also censured Facebook's use of various covert methods of tracking the online behavior of people who when they are not logged in, or even if they aren’t members of the website, by placing cookies and invisible pixels on third-party sites.

If Facebook fails to comply with the court’s judgment, it will be fined €250,000 (US$311,232) per day, with a cap of €100 million.

The case came after the Privacy Commission watchdog filed a case against Facebook in June 2015. At the time, the social network said it was confident there was no merit in the case, calling the watchdog’s decision to take it to court “theatrical.” Facebook previously said it was only subject to laws in Ireland, the site of its European headquarters. It also described cookies as being industry standard, stressing that internet users had the option to opt out.

The Friday ruling comes after Spain’s data protection watchdog fined Facebook €1.2mn in September, also saying the social network breached laws designed to protect people’s information and confidentiality. In December 2016, the European Union fined Facebook €110 million after finding it guilty of providing misleading information before winning approval to buy the messaging app WhatsApp in 2014.


Netherlands' Lies Over Putin’s ‘Aggression’ Expose NATO War Agenda

Netherlands Prime Minister Mark Rutte, who can do without any geopolitical dramas because he leads a fragile coalition government, this week faced a vote of no confidence in the national parliament after his foreign minister finally came clean over a dangerous lie he has been telling for two years concerning Russian President Vladimir Putin.

FM Halbe Zijlstra quit in shame on Monday after admitting his claim about personally hearing Putin plotting to create a "greater Russia" was untrue. Rutte, who has suuported Zijlstra's claims and been one of the most belligerent European leaders against Russia faced the "no confidence" motion from parliamentarians. In the end, Rutte narrowly survived the vote. If a majority had voted against his leadership, his coalition government would have collapsed.

But the damage done to the Dutch government's credibility will not be easily repaired, and Rutte’s survival as premier may in fact bakfire on his country's standing internationally. What has been exposed this week is a senior member of his government irresponsiblt telling bare-faced lies in an attempt to slander Russia, poison international relations, and ratchet up already dangerous geopolitical tensions.

Zijlstra had claimed two years ago, in 2016, that he had personally witnessed Russian leader Vladimir Putin boasting about how he was creating a "greater Russia" which, the Dutch Foreign Minister claimed, would incorporate Ukraine, the Baltic states, Belarus and Kazakhstan. He claimed to have heard Putin making the remarks while present with others at the Russian leader’s dacha (summer house) back in 2006.

This week, Zijlstra finally admitted before parliament that he hadn’t in fact been present at the alleged gathering, which the Russsian government said all along was the case. He still maintains, somewhat ridiculously, that a confidant who was among those present at Putin’s dacha informed him of the alleged greater Russia plan. But how can we now trust the word of a self-confessed liar?

Zijlstra’s boss, Prime Minister Rutte, also sought to downplay the debacle, claiming that his foreign minister had made a big mistake – but that “lying was not a deadly sin”. If the lie leads to nuclear conflict however, a few people may dispute that (the rest of course will be dead.)

Rutte, a smug shite at the best of times, is in for a rude awakening if he thinks he can get away with such complacency again. His government has been caught telling a lie whose ramifications concern issues of war and peace in Europe, it will not easily be trusted.

Since the US and European-backed illegal coup in Ukraine in early 2014, geopolitical reality has been turned upside-down. American and European corporate media have peddled relentless anti-Russia propaganda accusing Moscow of aggression and expansionism in Europe.

This torrent of Russophobia spewed out by Washington, the Pentagon, NATO and the European Union has created the worst crisis in relations with Russia since the Cold War ended nearly three decades ago. There are real fears that the mounting crisis could escalate into an all-out war involving nuclear powers.
