The Stirrers
One of the reasons the founding old Gits decided to publish The Daily Stirrer was because they detected a convergence of perspective in the political arena and the news media. A package of opinions, that perpetual economic growth was achieveable through borrowing, that immigration was good for the economy, higher taxation circulated through benefits equals economic growth, multiculturalism worlds, science is infallible and so on were being imposed on the population. Our aim was to promote freethinking and diversity of opinion.

The Daily Stirrer is constantly looking at the news and trying to dig out the stiory behind the story. With latest news that does not make mainstream media and controversial reporting and opinion, we are loking forward to bringing you inside information on the disintegration of the European Union, the replacement of the Petrodollar as global reserve currency, the continuing decay of the USA (unless Trump can neutralise the authoritarian warmongers of the deep state, and we don't think he can) and the ongoing problems caused by the flood of illegal immigrants from the third world to Europe and North America. We certainly do live in Interesting Times.

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.

BREXIT vs. GREXIT – The Truth About The European Union And How It Treats Members
Unless the testicularly deficient politicians stand up for their nations he only thing that will halt the European Union's push beyond Europe's geographical borders to incorporate Asian, middle eastern and north African nations is war.

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
Europeans want us British to lead them out of Europe. Don't be fooled by project fear, the European Union (aka the Euronazi Federal Superstate) is falling apart. There will not be chaos if we leave, there will be chaos if we stay.

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.

Some years ago we created an award rating for government and corporate control freakery schemes involving misinformation, censorship or the promotion of fake narratives. We called the awards The Golden Orwells. The awards were given to any story of government, corporate or mainstream media suppression or distortion of truth that reached nine (the highest score,) 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. 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 nix 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.

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, Ålands 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 Slides After Report Claims 50% Of Its Users Are Fake

the daily stirrer

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 Jests 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.

The Yellow Vests, Deplorables and Gammons Are Here To Stay

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,

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.

'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.”

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.

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.

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.


Uproar as Islamists Reportedly Spotted at Muslim Meeting in Cologne, Germany

Leading representatives of the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood, an organisation with known links to terrorism, fow whichj it is banned in some countries, have been identified at a recent conference in Cologne, dedicated to the future of European Muslims. The event’s organisers have insisted it is important to stay in contact with all "socially relevant groups".

The Turkish-Islamic Union for Religious Affairs (DITIB), organisers of the II Meeting of European Muslims in Cologne's recently opened central mosque (the biggest in Germany,) is facing criticism in Germany over reports about Muslim Brotherhood participation in its event.

As newspaper Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger reported, Muslim brotherhood members attended the event along with about a hundred guests, who gathered to discuss the future of Muslims in Europe. The regional government's Interior Ministry in North Rhine-Westphalia confirmed that two participants were identified as ones linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, which is on the highest priority watch list of the Office for the Protection of the Constitution.

Politicians from both the Christian Democrat Union (CDU) and the Social Democrats (SPD) have criticised the organisers for inviting extremists to be part of the forum. The head of the city district, where the event took place, also lambasted the DITIB, which has also been censured for receiving support from Turkey’s religious affairs ministry Diyanet. Josef Wirges (SPD) told the German broadcaster ARD that he had not been informed about the three-day congress.

"That was not right, and that also annoys me", he said.

Although in it's final statement from the event, the DITIB mentioned terrorist organisations that abuse Islamic teachings, there was no reference to the Muslim Brotherhood or any specific extremist group. Instead it expressed concern over physical manifestations of Islamophobia.

Muslim Brotherhood Work Purposefully to Infiltrate Swedish Politics — Researcher

The security authorities in Germany are concerned about the incresing number of Muslim Brotherhood supporters in Germany. In an interview with the German news magazine Focus, head of the regional office for constitutional protection commented that the danger posed by the Muslim Brotherhood is much greater than by Salafists.

Since its founding in Egypt in 1928, the Muslim Brotherhood has become a pan-Islamic organisation with over a million worldwide members in 70 countries. It is regarded as a terrorist organisation in many countries, including Russia, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. In Sweden, the MB has been active since the late 1970s.

"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 Åberg 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, and

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.

Anti - immigration campaigner Tommy Robinson is thrown in jail for trying to report on the rape trial of one on the muslim gangs accused of systematically grooming and raping young English girls in a northern industrial town. Canadian blogger Lauren Southern is denied entry to the country on the grounds that criticism of Islamic extremism published in her blogs pose a threat to public order. Yet Islamic hate preacher are allowed to call on their followers and all Muslims to kill non Muslims while #MeToo feminists say it is OK for Muslim men to rape because "multiculturalism and diversity."

If it sometimes seems possible to the causual obsrver that the UK government has greater committment to Islam than to serving the interests of Christian and secular people who make up the vast majority of the population, it will seem blatantly obvious after you have read this article.

German Interior Minister Demands Tougher Asylum Laws After ‘Orgy of Violence’ Mob Attack

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.

Another Conspiracy Theory Becomes Fact: Oil Collapse Is All About Obama's Proxy War With Russia. While we are distracted with sex scandals at home and terrorists rampaging through the middle east and Africa, the US / EU / NATO confrontation with Russia / China / Iran is geting into a very dangerous state. While the Chinese led move to dump the US dollar as global reserve currency is causing economic chaos, the USA attempts to provoke armed conflict with Russia are getting more reckless and desperate.

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. Yesterday Russia cut off its natural gas supply to Europe, "plunging the continent into an energy crisis 'within hours' as a dispute with Ukraine escalated," the Daily Mail reported.

Russia along with three quarters of the world, is isolated The latest EU sanctions announced today after last weeks NATO summit have left Russia increasingly isolated in the world according to mainstream media reports of the response from western governments.

Without American leadership, democracy is in peril? Not really. Much of the corporate propaganda spouting mainstream media are forecasting a bad outcome from the current chaose in Ukraine, with ISIS aka ISIL aka Islamic State in Syria and Iraq and the imminent collapse of the petrodollar. The consensus is that the west is currently not winning because of the failure of American leadership. This is untrue, most of the problems exist because America is leading the world towards war.

G77 Nations vow to destroy petrodollar and America’s New World Order By leading the G7, G8 and G20 economic groups for the past few decades the US government has managed to exploit its status as holder of the global reserve currency until it appeared on the brink og global economic hegemony. The Americans overplayed their hand however, became too blatant in their bullying of smaller nations and helping corporate interests override national laws. Now the world is closing ranks against the USA. Can't say we're sorry.

American Dollar Dumped The status of the US dollar as global reserve currency has kept the Americasn economy afloat for several decades in spite of the US government's vast debt and profligate public spending. It has looked for some time as if rival powers led by the Chinese were getting ready to topple the dollar from supremacy.

Iran's Oil and the US Dollar
You can't reason with religious fanatics. When the USA (was it the Bush or the Clinton administration?) first imposed economic sanctions on Iran in the hope of turning a medievalist theocracy into a liberal democracy it was always going to backfire. As the US tightened sanctions under Obama, Iran has attacked the USA where it is most vulnerable, taking the initiative in moves to replace the US Dollar as the global reserve currency

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.

House battery to store energy will 'change entire infrastructure of the world' - or maybe not
Another costly new product hailed as a breakthough in technology, this time a clutching-at-straws exercise from the failing electric car company Tesla, completely fails to live up to the hype under scrutiny. 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.

The GM Foods Nazis are revving up for a good whine again. Professor Sir John Beddington said there was no scientific qick fix to the ''enormously serious'' problem of producing enough fod to feed the world's rapidly growing population in the future as we face problems such as climate change, population growth and energy shortages. He told BBC Breakfast News: ''If there are genetically modified (GM) organisms that actually ...

Iceberg Alley BluesWe must stop using oil say the politicians and scientists as it becomes more imperative that exploration begins in Iceberg Alley off the Canadian Coast, elsewhere in the Arctic and in other sensitive locations. They are just trying to soften us up for carbon taxes of course. Nobody knows better than politicians that the world runs on oil and that alternative non polluting sources are a long way short of being able to supply energy needs .... Coal Fired Power Stations Win ReprieveIn what looks like a u-turn on green energy policy the coalition government have abandoned plans to support and subsidiese operators of sustainable energy generating plants. While environment activists and green campaigners are calling this a betrayal the case may well be that in the harsh reality of governing claims made by green energy firms look totally unrealistic ...

Tesla Driverless Cars World Domination Plan Hit By Another Crash
Electric carmaker Tesla, whose founder Elon Musk recently showed the kind of ignorance of human nature that typifies Silicon Valley billionaires when he smugly predicted the whole world would be letting driverless cars ferry them around by 2030, is preparing an updated “secret masterplan” as the company looks to rebound from concerns over the safety …

BHP Drops Bid For Potash of CanadaMining giant BHP Billiton has abandoned its takeover bid for fertiliser group Potash Corporation after it was blocked by the Canadian government.

The Growing Problem Of Rising Food PricesWhile the warmists rant about carbon and the Church of Scienceology Cult rave about climate science. there are threee real and immediate problems facing us that nobody is talking about. These are overpopulation, water shortage and food price inflation. This article deals with food prices, links at the bottom lead to our posts on population and water scarcity.
How Our Creature Comforts Are Baking The WorldAs the arguments rage on between the Climate Science Wankers lobby and the sceptis, realists and out and out deniers we observe that still nobody who gets media coverage, nobody who is talking sense about climate chaos, carbon based fuels, deforestation or over population is really being heard. Quite simply there are too many of us and we want too much. Who needs science or politics to understand that?
Next Boss Warns On Cotton Price IncreasesAs the boss of a major UK clothing and fashion retailer warns of the likely impact of rising cotton prices on the cost of clothing John De Roe revisits on of The Daily Stirrer's recurring themes throughout the economict crisis, overpopulation.
Food Will Cost The EarthA bid by Australian mining giant BHP Billiton to buy Potash Corp of Canada draws attention to food price inflation, rising commodity prices in world markets and an impending global food supply crisis. It is not just potash, essential in food production, but other finite resources like oil that corporate giants are bidding to gain control of that should concern us.
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.
Climate Change Crooks And LiarsThough climate change alarmists claim that that "the science is settled" no longerr holds water the arguments rage on. If anything they are getting more heated as the climate science lobby, knocked from the moral high grounds show their true colours. But more and more evidence is showing the climate change science was never settyled and the global warming Armageddonists had built their whole case on very flimsy evidence.
