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.

The Daily Stirrer is having a few staff problems at the moment, our editor / webmaster Ian is spending a lot of time supporting his wife who is in hospital recovering from a serious illness, science - technology expert Xavier is having health problems himself, not serious but energy sapping, and Phil T Looker who handles finance and economics is not a techie.

How Much Does The UK Actually Send To The EU

Big kerfuffle this week over Conservative Party leadership contender Boris Johnson facing a court hearing over his claim, made during the EU Referendim campaign, that Britain sends £350million a week to Brussels. Originally the Rabid Remainers tried to claim somebody in the Leave campaign (they weren't quite sure if it was Boris, Nigel Farahe, Jacob Rees - Mogg, Michael Gove or somebody else and didn't really care,) had said all of the money would go to the NHS. Nobody had actually said it of course but such is the solipsism of the globalist camp that if they want something to be true, they can easily convince themseles it is true.

The claim is in fact true but misleading. If the amount paid into the EU budget is taken, then it is close to £350million a week. Our net contribution (i.e. after the amount paid by the EU to fund various EU supported projects means the net amount we contribute to the EU is somewhat less. However that £350million is not the full story:

from The Bruges Group


The true cost to Britain being a part of the European Union is close to £661 million per week since 2010, a number hidden from the British taxpayers due to an intricate payments system and largely ignored by the mainstream media.

Our estimated figure encompasses £80billion lost to the Treasury after the European Court of Justice forced tax rebates to multinationals.

A key area of controversy is on the rebate, an annual, purported "reduction" in United Kingdom's contribution to the EU budget that's equal to about 66% of the difference between what the UK contributes to the EU budget and its receipts from the EU.

Even after the rebate, in membership fees alone, Britain shelled out £70.6 billion since 2010.

Data derived from a briefing paper on "The UK's contribution to the EU Budget" indicates Britain contributed between £8-10 billion per year. The same report acknowledged "the UK made the second largest net contribution to the EU budget in absolute terms, and the third largest net contribution per head of population" in 2015.

If the EU exceeds its budget, as it did in the fiscal year 2014-2015, UK is responsible for footing the difference. We did that year in the amount of £1.7 billion, as reported by the Daily Mail.

The EU demanded the amount after recalculating the income of member states dating back almost 20 years, penalizing the British economy that was found to be larger than previously determined. The article detailed Britain "paid the amount due" in full with two instalments not subject to rebates.

Parliament has no control over these payments since Britain is part of the EU and civil servants are legally obliged to pay these costs. Britain is increasingly relied upon as a financial support structure for Eurozone countries facing serious financial difficulty or at risk of defaulting on their debt

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.

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.

Dutch Referendum This Week Shows why We Should Leave The EU.

British banks now forcing online customers to surrender their right to protection from fraud

Experts fear that an addition to the terms and conditions on your online banking account could give banks an excuse to refuse a refund under the new compensation code launched yesterday, ostensibly to protect customers from authorised push payment (APP) scams — an increasingly popular type of online fraud in the UK.

APP fraud is where someone tricks you into sending them money from your account after contacting you by phone or email, pretending to be someone else. A comon approach is a call purprting to be from British Telecom (BT) threatening to cut of you internet connection unless you pay a specified sum. When the person targeted does not buy their internet access through BT this is easy to spot, but BT have a lot of customers out there and the scammers catch enough to make it worthwhile.

The new rules will see victims of such scams reimbursed only when they can showhave reasonable care has been taken to conform the payment was genuine. In a bid to prevent such fraud, banks have been using alerts to raise awareness of common tactics used by scammers (sic), such as posing as bank staff or police.

Now banks are demanding that customers confirm they are aware of the risks before they approve the payment — which leads some internet security experts to suspects banks will try to use these agreements to wriggle out of refunding fraud victims' money. So far, Barclays is the only bank to state this risk clearly to customers on its webpage. It warns: 'If you confirm this payment, and it turns out to be fraudulent, it is unlikely we will refund you.'

Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and NatWest are also warning customers it will be difficult to 'recover' their money if they go ahead with the payment and it turns out to be a scam. Under the new, voluntary code of conduct, providers must present customers with 'effective warnings' about scams when transferring money online.

However, the rules also say that if banks can prove customers ignored these warnings before making a payment or setting up a new payee, they do not have to refund them.'

Facebook’s Censorship Drive Backfires As Advertisrs Dump Platform

Mark Zuckerberg's bid to set up Facebook as official censor by appointment to The New World Order has backfired spectacularly as major brands are feeing the social media giant's advertising platform. CrossFit just announced they are shuttering their Facebook and instagram ad campaigns due to censorship, which filters out conservative and libertarian flavoured content and promotes only far left propaganda.

Facebook recently banned one of their affiliate pages without reason or warning. Many other organisations have been purged, somtimes not for actually supporting right wing political views but for simply not being enthusiastic enough about the kind of far left sacred cows Zuckerberg likes to embrace for his virtue signalling exercises. Other unethical behavior Facebook has engaged in around data rights includes collecting private data from users' home systems without authority, selling said data to advertisers and public relations consultants, ignoring court orders to cease and desist, tax evasion and a host of other bltantly illegal or ethically dubious activities.

The issues raised by CrossFit's decision reflect conservative concerns over free speech and social media censorship given the political bias shown by the owners of these companies. It seems that in their quest to satiate the outrage mob they have banned too many accounts, often without any reason other than that those sites reflect views that do not coincide with those of some egomaniacal Silicon Valley bilionaire.

When you appease exrtremists by banning one group then those same people demand you ban another group and it never ends. It is a trait of the left wing mindset that it can only ever go further in the same direction. Thus Facebook caving to far left faux - outrage over non - issues like 'transgender rights' or banning support for Israel has resulted in their steady decline. Young people are are abandoning the platform as it is now longer seen as cool, but has become a byword for authoritarian and illiberal business practices and political views. And now even it's biggest backer, the U.S. government is targeting Zuckerberg's empire with anti-trust measures. As more people and groups get banned on facebook more people decide to leave.

Belgian Yellow Vests Clash With Riot Police On EU Parliament Election Day

Belgian Yellow Vest protesters and other groups protesting EU mass immigration and Federalisation policies clashed with police and left wing activists protesting against the protestors in Brussels on Sunday, the final day of voting in the Europe wide elections to the EU Parliament.

>

Videos taken by protestors and onlookers show multiple fights between protesters and riot police, prompting the deployment of riot squads aremed with tear gas and batons. Protesters at Brussels Nord Station chanted "everyone hates the police," as a helicopter hovered overhead. The protestors also clashed with police outside the headquarters of the European Union in the heart of the city.

The rioters then moved on to the headquarters of Belgium's domestic Socialist Party (PS), where they were reported to have attacked the building with paint bombs.

Police continued to hit back at rioters with tear gas and water cannons as they struggled to keep up with them." -Express

Though results for the election cannot be released until after voting is completein all member states, and at the time of writing it is still going on in some EU nations, a leak from the Netherlands, which like the UK and Ireland voted on Thursday, suggests that the party of Prime Minister and leading Europhile Mark Rutte, the People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD) have been beaten into second place by the right-wing Forum for Democracy alliance (FvD).

Forum for Democracy – a relatively new conservative party, which is known for its Euroscepticism and sympathy for a grass roots Nexit (Netherlands exit) movement built around the idea of Holland leaving the EU, was formed in 2016 and has become a big winner in the Netherlands during the provincial elections two months ago, securing 86 seats spread across the country’s 12 provinces. In three provinces, including the capital region of South Holland it became the largest party.

Matteo Salvini, the deputy prime minister of Italy and leader of the nationalist League Movement, which is expected to strengthen its position as largest party in Italy called for a “Trump-style” revolution in his cash-strapped country and across Europe to halt the growth of the EU's bureaucratic empire.

Salvini has clashed many times with Brussels over Italy’s budget proposals and has also enraged European Union bosses with his hardline stance on immigration. He has even talked of Italy leaving the EU (Quitaly,) and has stood up to EU bullying since the unelected bureaucrats in brussels tried to overturn the result of the democratic election that voted his party into power by refusing to accept a Eurosceptic leader of an EU member state. And his proposals for tax reforms inspired by those passed introduced in the US by Mr Trump’s White House administration are sure to ruffle more feathers in Europe.

“I want a Trump-style revolution for Italy. The only way to reduce public debt is by growing and cutting taxes. That’s why a Trump-like revolution is dear to my heart.I won’t compromise on taxes. The whole government team must believe in this, he is reported to have said."

Salvini while officially the internal affairs minister in the Italian government is the de facto leader and is set on a course of confrontation with the Brussels bureaucracy, which he feels serves German interests to the dfetriment of other EU members.

The deputy Italian PM increased his popularity at home and infuriated globalist leaders like France's boy presodent Emmanuel Macron and Germany's Hausfrau - Volksfuhrer Angela Merkel by implementing a clampdown on migrants trying to enter Italy illegally via the Mediterranean.

“I reduced the landings by 90 percent. There were 11,000 last year, today they are 1,100. I don’t need to do anything else, the landings have been reduced and the expulsions are twice the amount of arrivals. I don’t need new ideas and what I’m doing I’m doing it without Europe, alone and with this government.”

Salvini's move to close Italian ports to ships operated by 'refugee' support charities which cruise the Mediterranean picking up undocumented migrants abandoned at sea by African human trafficking gangs.

Italy goes to the polls on Sunday in the European elections with League expected to win easily, but Mr Salvini would not be drawn on predictions.

Other EU member states which are likely to provide interesting results are Germany where the Eurosceptic opponents of mass migration the AfD are expected to make significant gains at the expense of ruling coalition partners the Social Democrats and Christian Democrats whose leader, Chancellor Angela Merkel kicked off the immigration crisis by declaring Germany's doors open to all comers and then tried to force other EU members to take the flood of uneducated, unskilled, illiterate, unemployable third world religious fanatics who flooded Germany's cities.

EU's Top Eurofederalist admits EU wants an empire

Leader of the left-progressive group in the European Parliament Guy Verhofstadt (a.k.a. Verhofshit ) has said that in order to compete with the rest of the world, the European Union must become an “empire.”

Verhofshit, the Phlegm who would be Emperor of Europe
Guy Verhofstadt, the Phlegm who would be Emperor (Picture via Breitbart,)

The leader of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats in Europe (ALDE) told CNN that plans to reform the EU and devolve power from Brussels back to the nation-state proposed by the populist paries that have spring up in member states, and led by Matteo Salvin's Lega (League) in Italy, Marine le Pen and her Rassemblement National in France and Hungary's Victor Orban, leader of the Fidesz party would mean that the bloc “will die inside.”

“The world is developing into one not of nation states, but of empires. China is an empire. India is an empire. The US is an empire. We need to create a European Union that is capable of defending our interests,” Mr Verhofstadt said told an interviewer from the far - left American news company who spoke to the Eurocrat his luxurious Brussels office.

Mr Verhofstadt, who is also the European Parliament’s Brexit Coordinator, is an avid supporter of greater federalisation of the European Union. The populist movements, including Alernative for Germany (AfD) and The Sweden Democrats, both of which are making big waves in their domestic electoral systems are also among the parties expected to make big gaines in elections to the toothless European Parliament being held this week. UKIP, the party which led the 'Brexit' referendum campaign in the UK are not expected to figure significantly after fragmenting following theior success. A completle new group, The Brexit Party look like topping the polls in the UK where elections have to be held after the Conservative government completely botched the leaving process and failed to take the country out of the UK on 29 March.

Though the populist parties have routinely been labelled neo - fascist, xenophobic and racist by Eurocrats left wing politicians and mainstream media, they are none of those, in fact in casmanyes their policies, except on uncontrolled immigration and surrender of national sovereigny to an unelected committee of bureaucrats in Belgium, are more socialist than shose of mainstream socialist parties.

During a Euronews Raw Politics discussion last week, the former Belgian prime minister compared a proposed United States of Europe to the United States of America, saying: “The United States of Europe is a way to organise a common action on the European level by recognising, by guaranteeing the autonomy of the member states.”

He was talking though his arse of course, none of those are Empires but he is not alone, other Eurocrats have also voiced support for a United States of Europe, including former president of the European Parliament and German socialist politician Martin Schulz who called for its formation by 2025. There have even ben discussions about extending the European Union beyond Europe's geographical borders. Such grandiose schemes are more reminiscent of the Nazi and Fascist dictatorships and Communist politbureaus of the twentieth century than a, supposedly democratic, free trade organisation.

POLITICO reports Tusk’s remarks as: “Jan Rostowski worked with me as finance minister of Poland for six years and then as my Deputy prime minister. “Not only was he the best finance minister in Europe during the financial crisis, he is also a very dear friend who would make a great MEP for London, which I know he loves. I urge Londoners who want Britain to stay in the EU to vote for him.” While Rostowoski was Poland’s Finance Minister and Deputy Prime Minister under Tusk, he was born educated in London, part of a community of Polish citizens in exile during the Nazi and Communist eras. The Change UK party has enjoyed a difficult first two months, since it was established by a group of globalist, centrist Labour and Conservative Members of Parliament who left their respective parties citing concern over the nation’s direction over Brexit. Claiming to represent a frustrated sizeable majority of Brits who felt unrepresented after the country voted by a margin of over 1.2 million votes, they are instead polling at less than five per cent. This failure to resonate with voters has been thrown into particularly sharp contrast by the runaway success of the Brexit Party, which is also less than two months old but is polling in first place for Thursday’s election. Tusk, who was PM of Poland from 2007-2014 and is a staunch ally of arch Eurofederalist Hausfrau - Volksfuhrer Merkel, and has been 'threatening' Brexiteers with the torments of Hell, whilst working eagerly to derail/cancel/reverse Brexit, has a big angry - red splodge on his record which should dissuade anybody from giving any credence to anything he says: He has been accused of responsibility for the Smolensk air crash, which conveniently wiped out practically the leadership of his (and Hausfrau Volksfuhrer Merkel's) whole national sovereignty supporting opposition leadership. It is known Tusk engineered the cover not merely the cover-up on the Polish side: from Wikipedia:

April 2010, a Tupolev Tu-154 aircraft of the Polish Air Force crashed near the Russian city of Smolensk, killing all 96 people on board. Among the victims were the President of Poland Lech Kaczynski and his wife Maria, the former President of Poland in exile Ryszard Kaczorowski, the chief of the Polish General Staff and other senior Polish military officers, the president of the National Bank of Poland, Polish Government officials, 18 members of the Polish Parliament, senior members of the Polish clergy and relatives of victims of the Katyn massacre. The group was arriving from Warsaw to attend an event commemorating the 70th anniversary of the massacre, which took place not far from Smolensk.

The pilots were attempting to land at Smolensk North Airport—a former military airbase—in thick fog, with visibility reduced to about 500 metres (1,600 ft). The aircraft descended far below the normal approach path until it struck trees, rolled inverted and crashed into the ground, coming to rest in a wooded area a short distance from the runway.[2]

Both the Russian and Polish official investigations found no technical faults with the aircraft, and concluded that the crew failed to conduct the approach in a safe manner in the given weather conditions. The Polish authorities found serious deficiencies in the organization and training of the Air Force unit involved, which was subsequently disbanded. Several high-ranking members of the Polish military resigned, under pressure from politicians and the media.

Various conspiracy theories about the crash have since been in circulation, and are promoted by Law and Justice's leaders Jaroslaw Kaczynski (twin brother to Polish President Lech Kaczynski, who died in the crash) and his deputy, Antoni Macierewicz, who claim the crash was a political assassination. Polish and international investigations did not find any evidence supporting this version.[2]

That's the official story. There is no such thing as a minority report when government inquiries are discussed, but independent investigations have come up with some very interesting findings. http://smolenskcrash.eu/new... http://smolenskcrash.eu/new... https://news.sky.com/story/... http://konferencjasmolenska... http://www.smolenskcrashnew...http://www.smolenskcrashnew... Note how happy Tusk looks in link above, on the very evening of the crash! The expression on his face is similar to that of US President George W Bush on being told of the disaster at New York's World Trade Center on 11 September 2001. Like he is double-air-punching for joy as he grins at Putin. Incredible! Once he realizes a camera is on him, he wipes the grin and substitutes a look of concern. Talk about a 'smoking gun'! http://www.smolenskcrashnew... The anti - Brexit message from Mr Tusk comes just weeks after the European Union’s Brexit coordinator, Belgian Federalism maniac Guy Verhofshit who, critics say, has been deeply antagonistic towards the United Kingdom during Brexit negotiations — travelled to London to campaign for the Liberal Democrats. Praising the enthusiastically pro-European Union membership party, whose election slogan for this vote is imaginatively titled “Bollocks to Brexit“, Mr Verhofstadt told supporters in a leafy London square: “This is Europe. Europe. It’s all Europe.” Top European figures did not publicly call on the British people to vote one way or another during the 2016 referendum where Britain chose to leave the European Union, a matter of regret in Brussels where it is apparently believed that instructing voters to stay in Europe could have swayed the decision. European Commission Chief Jean-Claude Juncker said this month that he should have intervened, saying had he done so he could have “destroyed the lies” which he claimed caused Brexit.

'Black Vests' African Protestors Take Over Paris Airport

Hundreds of illegal migrants, mostly from sub - Saharan Africa occupied the Paris Charles de Gaulle airport, the main air terminal in France yesterday, preventing people from boarding their flights and demanding that President Emmanuel Macron’s prime minister, Edouard Philippe met them to hear their demands. Predicably the cheese - earting - surrender - monkey government gave in to the demands of these criminal scumbags and granted them all immediate citizenship.

“France does not belong to the French! Everyone has a right to be here!” yelled one of the migrants, through a loudspeaker, as they pressed for their presence in the country to be regularised. The protest was organised by the pro-migration La Chapelle Debout group,

Calling themselves “Black Vests” in a bid to claim similar legitimacy to the Yellow Vests, the working and middle class movements who have been protesting Emmanuel Macron's 'government for the rich and globalism' policies for months, the migrants also demanded Air France “stop any financial, material, logistical or political participation in deportations” in a statement published on Facebook.

Due to the kid gloves approach taken by successive French governments to the criminal acts ofIllegal migrants, these thugs now appear to have little fear of reprisals for lawlessness, with hundreds having conducted a similar protest demanding regularisation outside the Paris police quarters in January, according to Le Parisien.

They were even more arrogant in 2018, storming the historic Basilica of Saint-Denis, which holds the tombs of France’s kings. They were joined in that action by far left anti-borders activists who helped vandalise the church and descecrate several tombs, forcing clergymen to cancel a Catholic mass and remaining in situ until the authorities forcibly ejected them from the premises.

It has also been widely rumoured that Muslim extremists elements in the illegal immigrant community were responsible for burning the national shrine, Notre Dame de Paris cathedral last month. The official narative which claimed the inferno was started by an electrical fault or building materials in a part of the 1000 year old church undergoing renovation were debunked by contractors who conformed there were no live electrical circuits in the area where work was in progress and neither were combustible materials stored in the area.

Populist politician Marine Le Pen, leader of Rassemlement National, the Eurosceptic, anti - immigration party condemned the seeming involvement of left-wing politicians in organising and promoting the demonstration, saying that “By calling migrants to desecrate the Basilica of St. Denis, Necropolis of our Kings… the far-left show that, in their immigrationist madness, they are ready to trample our civilisation and desecrate a place of historical worship.”

If the French Prime Minister has truly caved in to the demands of these criminals it sets a dangerous precedent for European Union nations. In the whole of sub - Saharan Africa there is only one abundant skill set, that of holding out a begging bowl and looking pathetic. Start giving such people what they ask for and you will never be rid of them.

Second bomb Attack In Six Months Targets Tourists In Egypt.

News feeds are telling us that earlier today (Sunday) a terror attack was made on a bus full of tourists travelling to see the Pyramids at Giza, near the Cairo, the Egyptian capital. Egyptian official news sources said the blast wounded at least 16 people, with no reports of fatalities so far.

The Egyptian government described the attack as having been by means of a roadside bomb placed on a heavily used stretch of road that in the tourist season is packed with busloads of sightseers en route to the famous World Heritage site, which leads security forces to believe it is the work of Islamic extremists intent on crippling Egypt's vital tourist trade — the second to target foreign visitors to the pyramids in under six months.

in December an explosion ripped through a tourist bus in Al-Haram area south of Cairo, which killed two and left a dozen injured, in what was the first such attack in two years.

Eye witness reports suggest the bomb was a relatively small explosive device, and photographs of the aftermath show the bus suffered impact damage, but is intact.

According to Bloomberg:

Some of the wounded were foreign nationals, according to Mohammed El-Saghir, head of police investigations in Giza's al-Haram neighborhood. The blast occurred in front of a museum that's under construction, and there was not immediate claim of responsibility.

In the hours following the incident, reported numbers of injured people rose to 18, with police saying they're attempting to track the source, which a number of reports have linked with Islamic militant groups engaged in a long running conflict with Egypt's security services.

Farage Shredded By Welsh Ministry Of Truth Newsman?

farage-interview Under the headline:

Welsh TV reporter shredding Nigel Farage is the best interview you’ll watch today

An obscure far - left website https://inktank.fi reported that while campaigning for the European Parliament elections in Wales, Nigel Farage was confronted by a BBC Wales reporter, Arwyn Jones, who asked him a question about Brexit, which you’d expect would be easy to answer:

A video clip of the exchange is going slightly viral on far - left, anto democracy sites such as Facebook and Twitter, with opponents of Brexit claiming Farage was 'shredded' by the reporter because he could not answer the question, "Can you name one WTO member nation that does not have a trade deal?

Of course Farage didn't answer, how could anyone answer such a stupid question posed by an idiotic reporter working for an ogranisation tasked by The Fourth Reich's ruling bureaucracy in Brussels and their puppets in Westminster with presenting pro - EU propaganda as news. A quick count suggests the WTO has 170 member (give or take a few to allow for counting errors on my part, many of which are island nations with very small population and some of which few of us have ever heard. Eswatini anyone? Apparently, according to the WTO membership list, Eswatini is a WTO member.

(What? No, I hadn't heard of it either until I looked up the list of WTO members.) Who knows if Eswatini has a trade deal? Who cares?

And who knew Tonga, (pop 100,000 spread across 36 islands) does not have a trade deal with anybody, not even nearby (well less than 1000 miles away) New Zealand, mainly because the Tongan economy is largely non - monetary. Their main sources of foreign exchange are payments from Britain, Australia and New Zealand, a small tourist industry (only the most intrepid would tracel so far to a place with so little to offer,) and remittances to family members from Tongans working overseas. They have no exports.

I only know this because I am at home on my computer with Wikipedia and Britannica Online at my fingertips. Almost every nation on the planet is now a member of the WTO, why would anyone know off the cuff the foreign trade policies of all of them. What is worthy of note is that no EU member states have trade deals either with each other, non EU trading partners or indeed the EU itself. They are bound by EU rules but those do not constitute a trade deal, free or otherwise. The EU itself is a member of the WTO and as its rules demand that member states surrender political sovereignty over trade policy to Brussels, not only the UK, but Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Poland, Netherlands and the rest of the member states cannot have any independent trade deals

But the item is reassuring in a way. If the Remainers are so far up shit creek with their efforts to get the Referendum overturned or Article 50 revoked they are celebrating imbecility, there's hope for Brexit yet.

EU Dictatorship: German MEP says process of choosing Juncker successor a hoax as European elections near

The process of selecting the person who will succeed Jean-Cluade Juncker as European Commission President is a deeply flawed “hoax” dreamed up by “Eurofanatics” who want to create a United States of Europe, a German MEP said today.

Hans-Olaf Henkel made his remarks as the prospective candidates – known as , in Germany, jockeyed for position. In accordance with the procedure, European political parties, prior to the European elections being held on May 23, appoint lead candidates for the role of Commission President, with the presidency of the Commission going to the candidate of the political party “capable of marshalling sufficient parliamentary support”. Hopefuls include Manfred Weber, who has served as Leader of the European People’s Party in the European Parliament since 2014 and Dutchman Frans Timmermans, Mr Juncker’s vice president, a member of the Party of European Socialists (PES).

Denmark’s Margrethe Vestager, European Commissioner for Competition since 2014 who successfully prosecuted Google over unfair business practices, is one of a number of names put forward by the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats as wanting the top job, with the Phlegm , the European Parliament’s chief Brexit negotiator, also on the list.

However, Mr Henkel told reporters: “The idea of a ‘Spitzenkandidat’ is a hoax!

“It is predominantly a German idea. As the name already implies, it is the idea of German euromantics who can’t wait to create the United States of Europe with more centralisation, harmonisation and socialisation.

“Like ‘Kindergarten’ or ‘Angst’, ‘Spitzenkandidat’ has already found its way into the language of other countries’ political language.

Manfred Weber Frans Timmermans

“It is a clear case of political shadow-boxing. Who knows Mr Weber or Mr Timmermans in Spain, Italy or France? Even in Germany, Mr. Weber is widely unknown.

“To pretend that the ‘European People’ might have voted for either candidate in the forthcoming is therefore fooling the public.

“During the last campaign for the European elections, Juncker was Spitzenkandidat of the EPP but I saw not one poster of him during my own campaign throughout Germany. Instead Ms Merkel and Mr Schulz were to be seen on posters all over the place.

“Mr Weber is unqualified for such a job. He has no executive experience in anything

“He wasn’t even mayor or dog catcher of a small town of Bavaria where he comes from. His entire career was almost only that of a party politician.”

, who forced Google to pay 4.4billion in back tax after investigating their tax avoidance techniques and later fining the tech giant over $2billion for manipulating search results to their own financial advantage, and who has also taken action against the governments of Ireland and the Netherlands to force them to pay more taxes to the bloc, was highlighted by Harald Schumann, editor of German newspaper Tagesspeigel, as the “ideal” candidate – but Mr Henkel was unconvinced.

He said: “It is true that Mme. Vestager was much more visible and “successful” than other EU-Commissioners but that doesn’t automatically mean that she is qualified.

“Let’s not forget that she runs the only job in the Commission that has legal clout. While she has become popular because of fining large companies, one should remember that most of her predecessors were equally popular.

But the man most likely to succeed Juncker is Juncker's protegee Martin Selmayr who was promoted to EU Commission Assistant General Secretary and then to General Secretary in the space of one afternoon.

Muslim migrants now such a threat to women in Sweden, armed police escorts accompany joggers on their runs

Residents of the Swedish city of Oskarshamn will now have the option to be accompanied by armed police officers while out jogging. The above comments made by a police inspector mirror a report from 2016 which acknowledged for the first time that the stratospheric rose in rape and other sex crimes was linked to the country's policy of accepting all - comers, including hundreds of thousands of undocumented travellers, to claim residency, asylum or refugee status. The report also revealed that close to half of women in Sweden felt “very unsafe” at night alone in Swedish cities. According to the report, conducted by newspaper Aftonbladet, a further 43 per cent felt uncomfortable in Swedish cities even in the daytime.

Swedes protest against migrant crime -Picture: https://fabiusmaximus.files.wordpress.com

The issue has been particularly bad in heavily migrant-populated suburbs many of which have been designated no-go zones due to lawlessness among the migrants. Though Sweden was never quite the socialist utopia it is often presented as by leftist media figure, when this reporter worked there arounf twenty years ago it was one of the safest places in Europe. Now many of the cities and large towns are torn by turf wars between crime gangs from various ethnic groups vying for control of the drugs and sex trades. A survey conducted by the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention (Brå) claimed that around half of the residents of problem areas were too afraid to leave their homes in the evenings. As Sweden’s violent crime rate has increasingly become the centre of national attention, more and more unorthodox solutions to the problems have been proposed. Last month, members of the Moderate Party even proposed deploying the military in no-go Muslim areas to aid police. RELATED POSTS: Sweden dystopia omnibus

Election fraud allowed to take place in Muslim communities because of 'political correctness', report warns

Election fraud has been allowed to take place in Muslim communities because of “political correctness”, a major report finds as it calls for unprecedented reforms to the British voting system.

In a report commissioned by the Government, Sir Eric Pickles, the former Conservative Cabinet minister, today warns that the authorities are in a “state of denial” and are “turning a blind eye” to election fraud.

He said that there is evidence of voter fraud “especially in communities of Pakistani and Bangladeshi background” but that the cases have been ignored because of “over-sensitivities about ethnicity and religion”.

Sir Eric warns that “challenging issues” over community cohesion should never be an “excuse” for failing to “uphold the rule of law and protect British liberties”.

Sir Eric’s report makes a series of recommendations to Theresa May, the Prime Minister, and calls for people to require identification when they are voting and for police cordons around polling stations to prevent intimidation.

He also calls for officials at polling stations to be banned from speaking any language other than English and says that it should be made a criminal offense to attempt to influence someone to vote for a candidate because of their religion ... READ MORE >>>

Legal basis of EU designed to take control from member states and hand to Brussels

The rejected European Consitution, which was abandoned in 2005 but reintroduced in 2007 as the Lisbon Treaty (a form which member states' voters coould not reject in national referenda,) was tailor-made to strip nation states of their power and centralise control in the hands of a Brussels cabal, according to a leading authority on international law.

Professor Richard Epstein, one of the foremost authorities on international law and treaties, exposed the cryptic clauses of one of the most important agreements in the history of the EU in a shock essay and in doing so exposed the true nature of the treaty and the power grabbing political monster the EU has become. At the time Mr Epstein warned the EU Constitution would result in less individual freedom and more bureaucratic interference, and centralised government from Brussels and advised Britain to chuck the treaty in the bin.

The document analysed by Mr Epstein was never formally ratified after being voted down in plebiscites in France and Netherlands, but it became the Lisbon Treaty, which passed in 2007 after being rejected in a referendim in Ireland, they only country consitutionally required to put a treaty change involving a surrender of sovereign powers to a public vote. But but Ireland is much smaller and has much less economic clout than France or Netherlands, and after the European Central Bank had shafted the Irish economy, Brussels told the Irish government the referendim result was not acceptable and the vote must be rerun.

The Lisbon Treaty contained 95 percent of the same text as the EU constitution, according to analysis by the London think tank Open Europe.

After being ratified by the political elites of member states and voted through at the second time of asking by Ireland, the Lisbon treaty became the legal bedrock of the EU, updating laws and regulations for member states, establishing a more centralised leadership and foreign policy, a process for countries that wish to leave the bloc, and a streamlined process for enacting new policies, in effect shifting the EU from being a free trade club to being a political entity.

In his 2005 essay called “American Lessons for European Federalism”, Mr Epstein, Professor at the New York University School of Law, argued that the EU constitution lacked many of the democratic checks and balances contained in the American constitution and the consitutions of democratic nations. Absolute power is weilded by a committee of unelected bureaucrats.

Predicting where the document’s internal structures, which lacked of any clear definition, would lead, centralising massive power into the hands of unaccountable executives in Brussels, Mr Epstein wrote: ”For those who want a strong state with weak individual rights, then this Constitution achieves many of their goals.

Let Them Eat Cake, Drink Booze And Smoke ciggies Says Libertarian Politician

Smoke, Drink And Eat Whatever You Want: Norway's Public Health Minister

11 May 2019

For years we have been lectured and harangued by the bansturbators, (that is, the people who get off on stopping us doing things that give us pleasure,) their fingers wagging furiously in our faces as they tell us smoking will kill us, even looking at an alcpholic drink will destroy our livrers, a pinch of salt will cause heart attacks, strokes and acute asplaxification of the nurdlers, a cream cake or two will make us obese, a steak dinner or a burger will give us cancer, and driving our cars will destroy the planet. So it was a pleasure to come across a news item about a politician who believes adults can be trusted to behave sensibly and left make their own choices in life.

Norway's new public health minister, Sylvi Listhaug is such a politician, she believes that adults don't need the constant lectures and admonishments from government about what they put into their bodies - telling Norway's state broadcaster NRK that "people should be allowed to smoke, drink and eat as much red meat as they like," according to a report in the snowflakes favourite journal, the New York Times.

norwegian health minister sylvie listhaug
Norwegian Health Secretary Sylvie Listhaug - Picture: www.hegnar.no/

"The government may provide information, but I think people in general know what is healthy and what is not," she added.

The interview - published a few days into her new role as head of the ministry, was "dotted with the kind of sharp, controversial comments Ms. Listhaug, deputy leader of the right-wing, anti-immigration Progress Party, is known for," reports the Times - which promptly goes on to disparage the conservative politician for actually believing in individual freedom and personal responsibility, two of the basic principles of real liberalism, (we all know people who 'identify' as liberals do so only because hir sounds cuddlier and less threaening that if they were honest and called themselves fascistic authoritarians.

Ms Listhaug is no stranger to controversy, as immigration minister she made headlines in 2017 with disparaging comments about Sweden, saying that Norway should not become like its neighbor, which was accepting more refugeesnd African despite having experiences a huge rise in crome rates, especiall in sex crimed by middle - eastern a males against European women since abolishing border controls and letting all comers claim residency in the country. Last year, she resigned as justice minister after comments about terrorists (which were in fact true,) she made on Facebook threatened to bring down the government.

This week, opposition politicians and health advocates suffered collective apoplexy as they tried to outdo each other in denouncing in the strongest terms Ms. Listhaug’s comments on habits that are hyped as major risk factors for many serious diseases, all of which are big money spinners for Big Pharma

The secretary general of Norway's Cancer Society, Anne Lise Ryel was shocked by the comments - saying in a statement: "I fear that this will set public health efforts back for decades, and that this will compromise the general understanding among Norwegians of the health consequences of tobacco and alcohol use." It is notable that a way of preventing cancer (and some maverick doctors say a cure,) has been available since the 1960s but no public health charity or government department in the democratic world is promoting it. Could that be, perhaps, that no expensive drugs, therapies or surgery are involved, only self discipline.

Ryel has called for Listhaug to be removed from her post, adding that "she seems to lack understanding of what public health really means and what her role as minister in that area should be." Perhaps she understands more than Ryel admits. This publication knows public health is about shovelling taxpayers' money into Big Pharma's coffers.

Listhaug stuck to her guns, fireing back in a Friday email to the Times, writing: "The government believes that people have to take responsibility for their own life, but the government has to make sure that everyone can make healthy and informed choices."

"The number of daily smokers has declined sharply since 2000," she added. "This confirms that the Norwegian tobacco policy and control strategy works."

According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, in 2017, 11 percent of Norwegians aged 15 or older smoked daily, one of the lowest rates among the group’s 34 member nations. Norway has also had the steepest decrease of any of the countries since 2000, when the equivalent figure was 32 percent.

The Eurosceptoc Progress Party has been a junior partner in Norway’s center-right governing coalition since 2013. Its rise to prominence created unease, coming just two years after a far-right, anti-Muslim extremist who had once belonged to the party killed 77 people in a murderous rampage. It;s rapid rise has accompanied a crime wave in the immigrant communities of Noway's cities, with turf wars between rival immigrant gangs for control of the drugs and sex trades often erupting into violence on the streeets of the capital city Oslo.

Governments around the world have stepped up campaigns to fight unhealthy habits usually be imposing punitive taxation. France recently told people not to drink every day; a soda tax in Britain has helped lower sugar levels in some drinks, and Australia’s graphic warnings on cigarette packages, considered a success, are being copied in other countries. -New York Times While governments claim success for their authoritarian attacks on personal liberty, the rise in contraband goods smuggled from nations were taxes on tobacco and alcohol are low or zero has risen astronomically and in Europe there have been cases of small factories being set up producing low quality cigarettes made with cheap tobacco in in healthy conditions, which are paked in fake reproductions of leading brand packaging and passed off as the real thing.

Listhaug also said that smokers in Norway are made to feel like "pariahs," and that she would not be the "moral police" in government - echoing comments made by Austria's far-right defense of freedom of choice in their oppostion of antismoking legislation.

Listhaug is a former regular smoker who told NRK that she is now just a social smoker.

Media admits that 10% of those infected with measles were already vaccinated, and that measles vaccines only work for a few years

via newstarget.com

Though its official failure figure is somewhat questionable, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is finally admitting, at least, that the MMR vaccine for measles, mumps, and rubella doesn’t always work as claimed – and even when it seems like it does, the vaccine’s effectiveness always wanes over time.

Rather than confer permanent immunity inside a person’s body like natural measles infection does, the MMR vaccine provides limited protection at best, it’s now being officially revealed. As this pertains to the ongoing, nationwide measles “outbreak,” as it’s being called, up to 10 percent of cases actually involve people who had previously received the MMR vaccine, the CDC says.

“Adults in the United States who were vaccinated against measles decades ago may need a new dose depending on when they received the shot and their exposure risk, according to public health experts battling the nation’s largest outbreak since the virus was deemed eliminated in 2000,” explains a Reuters report on the situation.

“Up to 10 percent of the 695 confirmed measles cases in the current outbreak occurred in people who received one or two doses of the vaccine, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,” this report adds.

Russiagate: FBI's Steele story falls apart: False evidence was used to justify bugging Trump campaign.

American story maybe, but I think anyone reading this blog will remember the Skripal poisoning case and may be aware the former Russian spy Sergei Skripal had links with Christopher Steele, a one time UK 'government asset' who was commissioned by the US Democratic Party to discover or create evidence that would link Donald Trump to the Russian government and thus disqualify him from the presidency.

After a two year inquiry into the alleged Russian collusion failed to find any evidence of wrongdoing by Trump or any of his campaign team staff, evidence is now emerging of malfeasance by leading Democratic Party politicians and prominent figures in law enforcement agencies.

Here's more from The Hill

The FBI’s sworn story to a federal court about its asset, Christopher Steele, is fraying faster than a $5 souvenir T-shirt bought at a tourist trap.

Newly unearthed memos show a high-ranking government official who met with Steele in October 2016 determined some of the Donald Trump dirt that Steele was simultaneously digging up for the FBI and for Hillary Clinton’s campaign was inaccurate, and likely leaked to the media.

The concerns were flagged in a typed memo and in handwritten notes taken by Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec on Oct. 11, 2016.

Her observations were recorded exactly 10 days before the FBI used Steele and his infamous dossier to justify securing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and the campaign’s contacts with Russia in search of a now debunked collusion theory.

It is important to note that the FBI swore on Oct. 21, 2016, to the FISA judges that Steele’s “reporting has been corroborated and used in criminal proceedings” and the FBI has determined him to be “reliable” and was “unaware of any derogatory information pertaining” to their informant, who simultaneously worked for Fusion GPS, the firm paid by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Clinton campaign to find Russian dirt on Trump.

That’s a pretty remarkable declaration in Footnote 5 on Page 15 of the FISA application, since Kavalec apparently needed just a single encounter with Steele at State to find one of his key claims about Trump-Russia collusion was blatantly false.

In her typed summary, Kavalec wrote that Steele told her the Russians had constructed a “technical/human operation run out of Moscow targeting the election” that recruited emigres in the United States to “do hacking and recruiting.”

She quoted Steele as saying, “Payments to those recruited are made out of the Russian Consulate in Miami,” according to a copy of her summary memo obtained under open records litigation by the conservative group Citizens United. Kavalec bluntly debunked that assertion in a bracketed comment: “It is important to note that there is no Russian consulate in Miami.”

So now evidence of what really went on during the 2016 campaign is emerging it backs up our reports on information leaked by Wikileaks and other whistleblower websites.

Bombshell: Facebook co-founder says it’s ‘time to break up’ the social media giant


In an opinion piece for The New York Times Chris Hughes, the co - founder of Facebook has called for scandal - plagued the social media and data theft behemoth to be broken up and lambasted the “staggering” and “unchecked” power of his former friend and co - founder, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a lengthy and searing critique of Zuckerberg's amoral, and often illegal behaviour at the helm of the social media corporation.

Hughes co-founded Facebook with Zuckerberg in a Harvard dorm room in 2004 and watched “in awe” as the company grew over the last 15 years — but said he now feels a “sense of anger and responsibility” about how all-powerful and out-of-control the social media giant has become under the management of the increasingly power - crazed CEO.

Lashing out at the company, Hughes wrote in the NYT piece that Zuckerberg’s power and influence goes “far beyond that of anyone else in the private sector or in government.” People may think that is sour grapes, but Hughes has no reason to be bitter, his time at Facebook made him a fortune estimated in the region of $500 million and he left of his own volition, having been quoted as saying, " "Working with Mark is very challenging," says Hughes. "You're never sure if what you're doing is something he likes or he doesn't like. It's so much better to be friends with Mark than to work with him."

He has also said he thinks more of Zuckerberg's friends who were involved in the creation of Facebook, most of whom he's still in touch with, have left Zuckerberg's empire in part because, like him, they got fed up with the CEO's unpredictable and megalomaniacal behaviour.

"Working with Mark is very challenging," says Hughes. "You're never sure if what you're doing is something he likes or he doesn't like. It's so much better to be friends with Mark than to work with him."

In the article Hughes criticizes Facebook over “sloppy privacy practices,” “violent rhetoric and fake news,” and the “unbounded drive to capture ever more of our time and attention.” "It’s not that Zuckerberg is a bad person," he writes, but “he’s human” and his focus on growth has “led him to sacrifice security and civility for clicks.”

There are many who would argue with the statement that Zuckerberg is human, given his robotic performances in front of members of the US Congress, UK Parliament and European Union regulators, biologically he may appear human but there is something misssing in his make up that renders him unable to understand why people might object to his company sharing users' illegally obtained personal data with any organisation willing to pay for it.

Hughes also bemoans the fact that the obsessive workaholic Zuckerberg controls three core communications platforms (Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp) and says that lack of competition, market or government regulation is a major problem. If a competitor crops up, Zuckerberg can simply choose to shut it down “by acquiring, blocking or copying it” in the manner it did with the Instagram and WhatsApp mergers. “There is no precedent for [Zuckerberg’s] ability to monitor, organize and even censor the conversations of two billion people.” Hughes warns.

It does not stop there, the article also reveals that Zuckerberg alone can decide how to configure Facebook’s algorithms to determine what people see in their News Feeds, what privacy settings they can use and even which messages get delivered.

Hughes also worries that Zuckerberg has “surrounded himself with a team that reinforces his beliefs instead of challenging them.” He believes that neither Facebook’s offer to appoint a “privacy czar” or the expected Federal Trade Commission (FTC) fine of $5 billion will be enough to rein in the corporate tyrant who heads Facebook.

The answer lies in more government regulation of technology companies' activities and increased market competition through breaking up Zuckerberg's empire into separate, competing organisations Hughes says. The lack of competition means that “every time Facebook messes up, we repeat an exhausting pattern: first outrage, then disappointment and, finally, resignation.”

Fascism Spreads From Tech Corporations To Finance Sector As Mastercard Blocks Conservative Clients

by Phil T Looker

OK, it's not happening here in Britain yet but bad ideas from the USA usually manage to leap across The Atlantic Ocean without difficulty, and the really unpleasant ones make that crossing at supersonic speed. The latest crappy idea from the far right control freaks of the US Progressive Liberal movement, and probably the crappiest yet to spring from that fountain of self - righteous idiocy is financial censorship of our activities by credit and debit card providers.

Blocking payments to individuals or groups by financial service firms because of their political views impedes freedom of speech in a free society, journalist Ben Swann has told RT, following reports that MasterCard is allegedly on course to censor the far-right by blocking payments from supporters.

The New York-based organisation is reported to be on the brink of being forced by pressure from far left extremists to create an internal “human rights committee” that would monitor payments to “white supremacist groups and anti-Islam activists.”

“The problem is that everyone has their own views and, in a free society, the idea of a free society is that you are free to have your belief systems, as long as you’re not harming anyone else physically,” Swann told RT America.

“But your belief system belongs to you and you have the right be wrong. White supremacists have the right to be wrong.”

MasterCard is not the only financial services provider considering the selective banning of individuals from their services and funds. Crowd funding webside Patreon and online payments handler PayPal have previously barred individuals considered to hold 'extreme views' from receiving payments via their platforms.

But unlike being excluded from online only platforms, being cut off from one of the leading global financial services corporations is likely have a much greater impact on the financial status of an individual or a group, especially after the US Securities and Exchange Commission reportedly blessed MasterCard’s undertaking.

By doing this, Swann believes the government granted “big corporations the ability to control what voices are heard.”

The issue with such an approach, the investigative journalist argues, would lead to a wider crackdown on financial payments to anyone who an authoritarian government would view as unfavorable.

“The fact that the SEC has given a green light to this essentially says the SEC supports the idea of censoring these groups in order to freeze out essentially anyone you don’t agree with,” the journalist said.

“It is a dystopian 1984 world view and yet we’re living through it right now,” the journalist observed.

One Rule For EU, Another Rule For The Rest

When the election for Mayor of Istanbul was won by an opponent of the autocratic Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the president declared it null and void and ordered a new vote. Without actually saying so, Eredogan made it clear if a rerun election did not produce the right result that too would be overturned. The decision to rerun the local mayoral election in Istanbul sparked scathing criticism in Brussels — ironically, from none other than the EU’s Brexit negotiator Guy Verhofshit, who from the day after the Brexit referendum result was announced has relentlessly campaigned for the result to be overturned and a new vote held.

Tweeting about this abuse of dmocracy, which was branded a “coup” by a Turkish opposition newspaper, Verhofshit, who was up until last years a vociferous supporter of Turkey being granted full EU membership, said it highlighted that Turkey was “drifting towards a dictatorship” and offered “full support to the Turkish people protesting for their democratic rights.” Along with the verbal slap on the wrist, he said that under President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s leadership, talks on Turkey joining the EU are “impossible.”

The irony in Verhofstadt’s outrage, is that the EU itself has a long history of either totally ignoring referendum votes — or just making people vote again until the ‘correct’ result is achieved. But that, of course, does not make the EU a dictatorship. It’s still a “bastion of hope, freedom, prosperity & stability” (as per another recent Verhofstadt tweet). Twitter users wasted no time in pointing out the “irony” and “hypocrisy.”

“How dare Erdogan use EU tactics,” one irritated Verhofstadt follower responded, with another saying that the UK itself was currently “battling for its democracy” — a reference to EU officials (including Verhofstadt) who have frequently voiced their personal opposition to Brexit and the ‘Remain’ factions in Britain who have been calling for a re-run of the 2016 referendum.

France voted down a proposed ‘EU Constitution’, which would have paved the way for transition from trade alliance to federal superstate, by 54.9 percent in 2005, but the outcome was ignored. The same thing happened in the Netherlands, which rejected it by 61.5 percent. The ‘EU Constitution’ was later repackaged into the Lisbon Treaty and presented to the French parliament where it was adopted, without being put to the people this time (much easier!).

The new Lisbon Treaty, which required all EU member states to surrender many of their sovereign power to the unelected Bureaucrats in Brussels, was then rejected by Irish voters in 2008, once again sending Brussels into meltdown mode, as the pact needed to be ratified by all member states before taking effect. So, of course, they made some tweaks and asked people to vote again — and got the ‘right’ result the next time. It wasn’t the first time Ireland was asked to re-vote after giving the wrong answer, either. The country also rejected the Nice Treaty in 2001 and accepted it in a second vote a year later. Greece voted overwhelmingly to reject severe austerity measures desired by the EU in 2015 in exchange for a multi-billion euro bailout. Not long after, under pressure from Brussels, the country’s government agreed to implement even harsher methods — totally ignoring the will of the Greek people.

But way before all that in 1992, Danes, displeased with plans for a single currency, common European defense policies and for joint rules on crime and immigration, rejected the Maastricht Treaty — and were asked to vote again.

Ironically, many European voters voted ‘no’ to these treaties because they were worried that the EU would be turned into some kind of undemocratic superstate where the wills of individual countries and people would be ignored. Being forced to vote until you give the ‘right’ answer doesn’t exactly put those worries to bed. It’s part of the reason why many British voters chose to support Brexit in the first place. Contrary to smears repeated endlessly by EU supporters to the effect that people who voted to quit the EU are old, stupid, uneducated racist, xenophobbic bigots who are living in the past, most who voted to leave were far better informed than Remain supporters who can only echo propaganda menes.

Remain voters have also constantly forecast that Britain's future outside the EU would be a rapid collapse of society and the economy until we become a third world failed state. People who voted Leave disagree, but also feel that if such a collapse did occur, it would be a future preferable to living in a province of The Fourth Reich.

President Junker reveals Eurosceptics will be blocked from Commission jobs regardless of election results

The European Commission will not allow eurosceptic candidates to be apponted to top EU jobs in Brussels no matter that outcome of the European elections in May, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, the Luxembourgois drunkard the boasted during a visit to Poland.

In an interview with Polish media Juncker trashed the suggestion that increased support at the ballot box and greater numbers on elected members in the EU Parliament for national populist parties after the May election would – in any way – affect the globalist European Union integration project.

“In these elections, those who promote foolish nationalism will pay the price for it,” Junker threatened as he reached for a bottle of a rare, expensive vintage wine to top up his glass. The arrogant old piss - artist went on,“Nobody knows this, but last time I rejected the candidacies of six of the Commissioners presented to me by national governments. Do remember that governments merely propose commissioners. It is the president of the Commission who accepts them and allocates their responsibilities,” the wannabe Fuhrer ominously added.

Addressing a question posed by a journalist from Rzeczpospolita, Juncker sneered that regardless of whether Poland’s national populist ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party wins November’s national parliamentary election or if it’s beaten by an opposition coalition backed by globalists in Brussels, Poland would have to stay in the EU due to its financial dependence on the transnational institution.

“Poles do not want to be cut off from all of this,” Junker proclaimed grandiosely, before adding that Western Europeans “should not think Poland is only in the bloc for money.”

The unelected Luxembourgois politician went on to claim that Poland’s membership in the EU is essentially contingent upon its shared ‘common values’(values dictated by unelected bureaucrats selected from among the global elite it must be said - The Stirrers,) shared with other countries inside the EU, smugly adding that money from Brussels ‘is not a gift, but a recognition of the magnitude of the reforms carried out’ since joining the bloc.

French Journalists Reject Government Narrative, Show Support For Yellow Vests Yellow Vests

=

Throughout the developed world we have witnessed, over the past few years, increased political pressure being applied to news organisations to promote the government line on issues such as multiculturalism and diversity, climate change, vaccines, military interventions and mass surveillance. Some governments have even go so far as to effectively abolish the right of free speech by criminalising so - called 'hate speech', a crime where, in common with medieval witch hunts, to be accused is regarded as suffficient proof of guilt. While Silicon Valley new media giants have made no secret of their political biases, even appearing to be vying for the role of official censors of internet content, the corruption of mainstream news journalism has been more insidious.

Though governments in the democratic world have been following a trend towards greater authoritarianism, implementing mass surveillance policies, and clamping down on freedom of expression, resistance is growing, and nowhere more so than France, a nation with a long tradition of anarchic dissent. For six months the ad - hoc protest movement known as Gilets Jaunes (Yellow vests) have protested against the globalist government of 'boy - president' Emmanuel Macron, a former investment banker pushed into power by the establishment in a bid to fend of a victory by the nationalist Marine Le Pen and her Rassemblement National (formerly Front National.) The Macron government is seen as ruling in the interests of the rich and of global corporations. The Yellow Vests protests were triggered by punitive fuel taxes, a part of Marcron's over - ambitious plan to turn France into a net - zero carbon emissions economy, and by rising living costs and high unemployment. Now what began as an expression of dissatisfaction among people on moderate incomes has evolved into something much bigger, something that could change France and further weaken the European Union

Marcon's response to the protests has been to delpoy the para - military Gendarmerie against the protestors and authorise brutal riot control tactics against unarmed citizens.

Now, after supporting the government line so far, the news media have turned on Marcon, whose government is already on the brink of collapse as civil unrest threatens to turn into civil war. Over 300 media organisations, journalists, photographers, and others working to deliver news to French citizens have put their names to a letter denouncing the excessive brutality of the methods used in trying to suppress the protests. Rubber bullets, tear gas, water cannon, baton charges and punishment beatings have all been used against people involved in Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vest) protests and members of the press corps in the cities and towns of France.

The letter claims that press freedom in France has been suffering for years under both conservative and socialist governments. Macron's predecessor in office, the socialist Francois Hollande even went so far as to 'ban' conspiracy theories, though how that was intended to work we're unable to say. The general dissatisfaction with all levels of French government entered a new phase following the start of the Yellow Vest protests in November of last year, Franceinfo reports.

“All these forms of violence have physical (injury), psychic (trauma) or financial (broken or confiscated equipment) consequences. We are personally and professionally denigrated and criminalized,” the journal wrote, highlighting the work of journalist David Dufresne who has catalogued at least 698 cases of people being attacked or injured by police at the protests, including 85 journalists.

The signatories to the letter also raised the issue of police demanding press cards, something not always available to independent journalists, saying, “As a reminder, journalism is not a regulated profession. It is not the press card that justifies our profession. That is why we demand that the government take the necessary measures so that law enforcement agencies stop harassing us and let us work freely.”

The issue of police violence towards members of the Yellow Vests has sparked concern from other sectors of society, including medical professionals, who, through their profesional body, said they had never seen so many serious injuries, some of which have included lost hands and eyes, during a protest movement.

Earlier this week, a 19-year-old woman who was so badly injured by police during a protest in Marseille on December 8th filed attempted murder charges against the officers, saying she was hit by a rubber bullet and then brutally beaten by plainclothes officers as she lay on the ground.

According to the 19-year-old, she had only just left for the day before the assault and has been so badly injured that it took her four months to be able to return to her job in the retail sector.

In another example of excessive police violence, a 72 year old woman who fell to the ground after being hit by a rubber bullet was set on and beaten so badly by police officers as she lay on the ground that she lost an eye. Commenting on the outrage President Macron said he hoped she had learned some wisdom from the incident. It is encouraging that French journalists are no longer prepared to play down such revolting arrougance from the ruling elite.

Unplugged Tesla Model S Spontaneously Ignites While Parked In San Francisco Garage

With governments and academics seemingly set on persuading us all to switch to electric cars very soon, electric cars themselves, and those made by Tesla in particular, seem intent on proving they are not only ridiculously expensive, hopelessly inefficiant and unarguably not fit for purpose. As more Teslas are sold and delivered, increasingly the model range of appear to be spontaneously combusting more regularly than Spinal Tap drummers as a result of shoddy production, careless quality control or a reckless disregard of safety considerations in the quest to make the cars get further than the end of your srteet before the batteries need to be rechrged. In the latest embarrassing spontaneous combustion incident, a Tesla caught fire in a San Francisco garage last night, prompting an investigation from authorities, according to the local KRON 4 TV station. The San Francisco Fire Department responded to a reported car fire just after midnight at a home on the 1300 block of 26th Avenue near Irving Street. The crews saw "smoke near the rear right tire of a Tesla Model S" that was not plugged in at the time and put out the fire. The Tesla was then towed from the garage by the fire department. There were no reported injuries at press time. This was the second incident in which a Tesla reportedly caught fire after smoke started to spontaneously emerge from beneath the car in as many weeks. Two weeks ago we were first to report on a stunning video that showed a Tesla catching fire and exploding while parked, in China. Similar to the event in San Francisco, smoke can be seen billowing out from underneath the vehicle before it burst into flames. Luckily, nobody was in the vehicle at the time of the Chinese "incident" which Tesla said it is investigating. Given this latest incident, the question remains: how long will US regulators allow these cars to continue bursting into flames on their own, without probing into the reasons for the recurring incidents or demanding a recall? How long will they allow this game of flaming Russian roulette continue? And unfortunately, we also have to ask: the next time a car catches fire on its own, will there be passengers in it? At the least, it certainly makes you think twice about whistleblower Martin Tripp's allegation that Tesla was letting defective battery cells make their way into vehicles rolling off the line. We will be updating this story as more details become available. MORE on Tesla: Tesla end game?

Paris In Chaos As "Armageddon" Protesters Riot On French May Day Holiday

Tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets of Paris and other French cities on Wednesday to mark International Workers' Day (also known as Labor Day), only to clash with French riot police. The demonstrators included Yellow Vests, trade unionists, climate change protesters and Black Bloc (antifa) - which posted on social media that they wanted an "Armageddon" rally that would turn Paris into the "Riot Capital of Europe," the Daily Mail reported today.

More than 7,400 police, gendarmes and soldiers were on hand to quell the more violent protesters. Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said "'There's no question of dramatising anything, it is a question of being prepared," adding that "1,000 to 2,000 extremists" were expected to join the protests.

Paris police said 250 people had been arrested, most for public order offences related to the rioting, as cops clashed with 'Black Bloc' anti-capitalists. The Sun reported large areas of Paris are on lockdown as an unprecedented 7,400 police officers have been drafted onto the streets.

More May Day riots are expected in the French capital today, tomorrow and through the weekend following the months of chaos caused by 'Yellow Vest' protesters. The massive security presence on the streets of French cities was announced by Interior Minister Christophe Castaner who said: "There’s no question of dramatising anything, it is a question of being prepared."

May Day is a Bank Holiday and a traditional time for Left-Wing workers to rise up against the ruling elite.

Marching alongside labor unions, pensioners, students and others, the protesters were hit with large amounts of tear gas, baton strikes and other crowd control measures. Our source in France tells ud dozens of masked and hooded anarchists clashed with riot police in southern Paris Today (Wednesday), burning bins, smashing property and hurling projectiles, hijacking a May Day rally that was focused on protesting against President Emmanuel Macron’s policies.

Tens of thousands of labor union and “yellow vest” protesters were on the streets across France, days after Macron outlined a response to months of street protests including tax cuts worth around 5 billion euros ($5.6 billion).

The founder and former leader of France's right-wing Front National (FN) party, Mean-Marie Le Pen delivered a May 1 speech at the Place des Pyramides during a rally to honor Jeanne d'Arc. "Let's have the courage to be nationalists," he told the crowd, predicting "serious social and political dramas" to come.

Meanwhile in the southern French city of Toulouse, over 1,000 protesters made their way through the streets of la ville en rose, however local media has yet to report any violence according to The Local.

The yellow vest protests, named after motorists’ high-visibility jackets, began in November over fuel tax increases but have evolved into a sometimes violent revolt against politicians and a government seen as out of touch.

Macron issued a series of proposals last week in response to the protests, but many in the grassroots movement, which does not have a leadership structure, have said they do not go far enough and lack detail.

The banners in the crowd reflected the anger among some in the movement who feel abandoned by Macron’s economic policies.

The 41-year-old president, a former investment banker, pushed a reform blitz during the first 18 months of his presidency that impressed wealthy business and professional people but infuriated low-paid workers, who feel he favors big business and is indifferent to their struggle to make ends meet.

“Here are the thugs,” one banner read, showing Macron, European Union Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde.

Another targeted the president directly: “Macron, what have you done to us?”

Thousands of people also demonstrated in cities from Marseille to Bordeaux and Lyon, according to a report from Reuters.

It is becoming obvious that the only way France's ruling elite, for years even more out of touch with the mood of the public that the political establishments in Britain, Germany and The USA, will solve this crisis is for the President and his govrnment to resign and call a new election.

mScientists claim mystery substance 'Dark Matter' does exist and explains 90% of the universe

DARK MATTER is not a hypothetical substance but is real and is a fundamental building block of the universe, according to a shocking new exercise in speculative mathematics. Astrophysicists estimate dark matter accounts for 85 percent to 90 percent of all the matter in the known universe. Scientists, however, have mostly been unable to detect the mystery material because its weak interactions with the electromagnetic force are intangible at best. Instead, astrophysicists have only been able to infer its existence from the gravitational effects it appears to have on normal matter. As a result, dark matter is considered a hypothetical substance likely built from a form of undiscovered subatomic particles.

This has led some scientists to question whether the substance exists and whether it will ever be discovered.

A new study published in The Astrophysical Journal, led by the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA), has sought to dispel the doubt surrounding dark matter.

Chiara Di Paolo, a doctoral student of astrophysics at SISSA, said: “Three years ago, a few colleagues of the Case Western Reserve University strongly questioned our understanding of the universe and the in-depth work of many researchers, casting doubt on the existence of dark matter in the galaxies.

“Analysing the rotation curves of 153 galaxies, principally the ‘classical’ spiral kind, they obtained an empirical relationship between total gravitational acceleration of the stars, observed, and the component which we would observe in the presence of sole ordinary matter in the classical Newtonian theory.

I saw some Dark Matter once, it looked just like Rocking Horse Shit.

Spainish Election: Vox Party Could Win First Seats In Parliament For Far Right Since Franco Died

In a few days Spain will vote in its third in just four years but with nationalistic and anti EU feeling sweeping the nation as it is the rest of Europe this vote could produce a very different outcome to the inconclusive results of the previous three. The far-right party Vox is predicted to pick up some parliamentary seats for the first time since the country transitioned to democracy about 40 years ago.

Supporters like the Vox party's tough stances against immigration and feminism, and against the push for independence in the Catalonia region in northeastern Spain. Critics say it has revived Spanish nationalist ideas that had become fringe after the fall of Spain's long dictatorship. In consequence, the usual slurs, fascist, Nazi, racist, Islamophobe, hate merchants, far right thugs etc, which are thrown from the left come as no surprise to Juan José Bonilla, Vox’s lead organiser in the agricultural, ultra - conservative El Ejido region where support for Vox is strongest. Bonilla only joined the fledgling party last November after years of loyally voting for the mainstream conservative Popular Party (PP).

A patriotic man, Bonilla dismiises the fragmentation of the Spanish Right, waving a Spanish flag from as he addresses the media.

“See this? This flag? It is like we are ashamed of it, you cannot hang it outside or it’s looked upon as a disgrace,” he says. “When I wave it they call me a ‘racist’ and ‘fascist’, but at Vox rallies we fly the flag. It is a question of pride.”

His words are clearly nationalistic, but are being echoed all around Europe and further afield as charismatic leaders emerge to galvanise resistsnce to the globalisation of mediocrity.

"They're increasing hate, racism, and a lot of things that were hidden," says María Bayó, 40, who is talking about politics with friends outside a bar in the outskirts of Barcelona, in Catalonia.

Bayó is a supporters of Catalonia's bid for independence from Spain, a divisive issue and a different face of nationalism. But she blames right-wing parties for railing against secessionists and immigration, while distracting from important problems like the lack of jobs and affordable housing. Spain's high unemployment rate, which hovers above 14%, is the top concern for most Spaniards, according to the Center for Sociological Research.

Originally slated for next year, Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez called early elections after his center-left Socialist government failed to get its budget passed in February.

As with both 2015 and 2016 parliamentary elections, no single party is expected to win an overall majority on Sunday. That could mean drawn-out jockeying among parties to form a coalition government. Under its charismatic leader Santiago Abascal, the Vox party - with its slogan ‘Por Espana’, ‘For Spain’ - believes it can form a part of a right wing coalition by outperforming polling predictions. The party has been filling sports stadiums and bullfighting rings with huge crowds waving Spanish flags to rousing patriotic music in a way that the Trump campaign enthused supporters in the USA's 2016 election..

It has been an astonishing transformation. At the last election in 2016, Vox polled just 0.2 per cent of the vote, but polls now show it on course to win 10 per cent nationally, translating to more than 30 seats in Spain’s 350-seat national parliament.

Mr Bonilla gives three reasons for the sudden success of Vox, which was founded five years ago by a breakaway group of disgruntled PP politicians, and scored its first big electoral win last December in the regional election for Andalusia, where El Ejido voted 29.5 per cent for Vox.

The first is the Catalonia independence issue, and the failure of Spain’s mainstream parties to clamp down on regional nationalism; the second is identity and immigration; and the third (and here Mr Bonilla mimes the palming off of backhanders) “corruption, corruption and corruption.”

Google Is Helping Governments Violate Your Privacy

by Xavier Connolly

Can Gogle be trusted with your information

A new law suit filed in the USA complains that Google is helping the U.S. government circumvent constiutional protections in order to conduct warrantless searches on citizens. The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) has formally accused Google of scanning billions of personal files of users at the request of the U.S. government. EPIC recently filed a “friend of the court” brief alleging that Google is helping the U.S. government conduct warrantless searches by scanning user files in search of potentially illegal content or evidence of crimes.

The new suit came in response to United States v. Wilson, a case in which it was shown Google scanned billions of users files in an attempt to identify images of children reported as lost or missing by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). After scanning images contained om users computers, Google contacts law enforcement agencies with information on individuals who have images that may show missing children. Unfortunately this entire process happens without permission from users or a warrant issued by a court, and without reasonable grounds to suspect the individuals whose files are accessed of involvement in any crome. EPIC’s brief argues that “because neither Google nor the government explained how the image matching technique actually works or presented evidence establishing accuracy and reliability, the government’s search was unreasonable.”

EPIC claims the situation allows law enforcement oficers to ignore civil rights protections against unreasonable search and seizure of property and conduct warrantless searches with help from Google.

“If, for example, police officials would like to examine the digital files of certain suspects, they can simply turn to Google, which will do all the searching for them – and without the time, expense or hassle of getting a warrant for this search,” CPO Magazine reports. “For police departments, warrantless searches of digital material would be one way to make their criminal investigations much easier.”

This particular case centres on a new Google algorithm that scans files to locate a specific image using image matching. Previously, the NCMEC was required to provide Google with image hashes, used to identify a unique image without showing the actual image. However, Google’s new algorithm uses image matching instead of image hashing. EPIC said the “lower court made a key mistake” by confusing file hashing with the more personal method of image matching.

EPIC’s concern centers around the ways this technology might be used to target citizens for their religious or political affiliations, or even for viewing content security sgencies disapprove of. Remember, the US Govertnment under the Obama Administration, the UK Government under both Labour and Conservative Administeatuions, the German Government and the French government have all seriously considered crominalising the viewing and discussion of content questioning climate change, vaccine programs, military interventions in sovereign nations and criticism of Islam. After the shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand, (March 2019,) officials threatened jail time to any New Zealand citizen in possession of the shooter’s livestream video. With Google’s current policy, what’s to stop New Zealand’s law enforcement from asking Google to search user files for a copy of the banned “hate content”?

This type of arrangement with tech companies allows the government to avoid applying to a court for a warrant and sets dangerous precedents for future extensions of surveillance regimes. The world’s largest search engine company is facing increasing scrutiny as news of their comtempt for privacy laws, their deceitful statements to media about privacy policy, and their abuse of illegally obtained user information makes headlines around the world. For example, Google recently came under fire for choosing to build a censored version of their search engine for the Chinese government under the Dragonfly program.

If Google continues to show the world they respect neither privacy laws or users’ civil rights, why are so many people still not only using the tool but waxing lyrical about how it has improved our lives? The realities are that Google's search technology made it a lot easier to hide information governments or tech companies do not want you to see, and that corporations will work with governments to erode privacy—and thus, freedom — so long as they know huge numbers of people around the world will still believe what they are told to believe and carry on using the services of corrupt and totally self interested corporate entities.

May Will Offer Her Brexit Dire Deal For A 4th Vote because She Has No Plan B

Ian R Thorpe

After the Easter recess, the UK Parliament is back at work today and Brexit-related news is back in the headlines. Nothing has changed since May struck an agreement with the EU for a six-month extension of Article 50, which the EU made conditional on The Prime Minister getting her Brexit-In-Name-Only treaty accepted by British lawmakers before elections to the European Parliament in May.

Talks with tho opposition Labour Party, aimed at finding an alternative to Mrs May's Brexit deal remain deadlocked with Labour's insistence on a second referendum the biggest obstacle. Though the Tory and Labour representatives resumed talks on Tuesday, widely cirulated rumours suggest the talks could fall apart in the coming days.

Whatever happens with the talks is of little irrelevance because the EU has been clear that the withdrawal agreement (suspected to have ben drafted by Angela Merkel because of its one sidedness,) is the only deal it will accept. That deal has already been thrown out three times by The British House of Commons. Though the margin of defeat has shrunk in each successive vote it is still substantial. So long as the Irish Backstop, the section which would keep Norther Ireland tied to the EU while mainland Britain left, remains the immovable object blocking the deal's progress it's unlikely that May will be able to win over enough Brexiteers to push the deal through.

MayTheresa May looks as if she is about to throw up after hearing the latest Brexit - Picture: Zero Hedge

With few viable alternatives apart from another extension and another and another, the Financial Times reported on Tuesday, surprising absolutely no one, that May, now if not recognised as the most stupid, arrogant, stupid politician ever, surely a contender, is preparing to bring the virtually unaltered withdrawal agreement back for a fourth vote.

Just like the third vote, May will need to embrace some procedural maneuvers to satisfy Speaker Bercow's condition that the deal must be "substantially different" than prior votes if May wants to bring it back. This time, the withdrawal agreement will come packaged in a more far-reaching withdrawal agreement bill.

And a vote could come as soon as next week.

Downing Street sources suggest a fourth vote on May's bill could be the last chance to avoid Britain's participating in the upcoming elections to the EU Parliament, something May had desperately sought to avoid and which would result in the anihilation of the Conservative Party bloc in the European Parliament.

If , as is probable,the bill is defeated again May would be prohibited from bringing it back for another vote until a new session of parliament begins in November. We guess May, ever a fanatical supporter of the EU and globalism, would stubbornly try to find some kind of procedural loophole to keep bringing her deal back and keep Britain in the EU until opposition evaporates from sher fatigue.

Even if it should eventually manage to pass the Commons, there are still procedural hurdles to negotiate before Brexit could be officially delivered. The Daily Telegraph reports:

The treaty the bill is intended to implement includes provisions such as the UK’s £39bn exit payment to the EU, protection of citizens’ rights, a transition period and the so-called backstop to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland. If the legislation is rejected, as currently seems likely, the government could not reintroduce it again in this session of parliament.

"It would be quite a big thing," admitted one ally of Mrs May. In those circumstances the bill could only be brought back if the current parliamentary session was ended.

Approval for the legislation would kick off a tortuous passage through parliament during which the bill could be amended. Attempts to add a customs union or a second referendum would be expected. Even if the bill did eventually become law, Downing Street said there would still have to be a separate “meaningful vote” on Mrs May’s deal under the terms of 2018 Brexit legislation. However, that would be expected to be a formality if MPs have already approved the bill to put the draft treaty into effect.

Whatever happens, May's deal, along with May herself, may soon become a footnote in history. That's because, as the Telegraph reported, Sir Graham Brady, the leader of the influential 1922 Committee of Conservative members with no official government position, is planning to confront the boss on Tuesday and demand that she sets a date for her resignation or the party's members will change the leadership rules to allow her to be ousted (after surviving a no confidence vote late last year, May is immune from further challenges for a year under the current rules).

Other prominent Conservatives, including Nigel Evans, member for Ribble Valley (where I live though I didn't vote for him,) have called on May to resign immediately.

Yellow Vest Violence Erupts Again, 23rd Straight week Of Protests

Clashes between Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vest) protesters and French riot police on Sturday (20 April,)during the 23rd straight week of protests across France. Police arrested 137 protesters Euro News reports.

French authorities had expected the protests to be more violent following the fire at Notre-Dame Cathedral on Monday, which many people in France believe to have been an act of terrorism. Some demonstrators from the left of the political spectrum took issue with the approximately 1 billion euros ($1.12 billion) pledged so far to restore the national treaure by many of the country's wealthiest families, including the owners of luxury groups LVMH and Kering, the Bettencourt family behind the L'Oreal beauty empire, and corporate entities such as BNP, Total, Société Générale and Sanofi, according to Euro News.

Several banners displayed by demonstrators clearly referred to the disastrous fire, which prompted an outpouring of national sorrow but was politicised by some activists. "Millions for Notre-Dame, what about for us, the poor?" read a sign worn by a demonstrator. "Everything for Notre-Dame, nothing for Les Miserables," read another sign that evoked Victor Hugo's well-known novel (or maybe the musical based on it. - Reuters

The police asked that nonviolent Yellow Vests "disassociate yourself from these violent groups, let law enforcement and emergency services intervene."

"The rioters have visibly not been moved by what happened at Notre-Dame," Castaner added, criticising the "polemic" and "the most absurd conspiracy theories" that surfaced following the blaze at Notre Dame Cathedral on Monday. He also condemned calls made on social media to protest near the ravaged monument.

One of the conspiracy theories concerning the Notre Dame fire is that it was a government backed 'false - flag' outrage designed to distract French citizens from the protests and the dissastisfaction that triggered them. Castanters words can only add momentum to that wild rumour.

Liberal Democrats suspend candidate for failing to support homophobia, rape, wife beating and FGM

The Liberal Democrats, if they were honest, ought to rebrand themselves The Liberal Hypocrites. After 30 years screeching in sheer horror about the way civilised societies treat women, homosexuals, criminals, and the absolute refusal of some immigrant groups to even tolerate let alone integrate with the laws and customs of liberal democracies. In short The Liberal Hypocrites have joied those political factions that, in an orgy of virtue signalling, have placed Islam beyond honest criticism. All the things the Liberal Hypocrites claim to hate in European and American societies are OK, or even to be celebrated when followers of Islam do them.

from Jihad Watch

However Dániel Tóth-Nagy doesn’t get it. The leaders of the Liberal Democrats, however, do get it: Islam is now supreme in Britain. The human rights abuses that are committed in accord with Sharia directives are never to be questioned. To question them is to render oneself “Islamophobic” and beyond the realm of acceptable discourse. Dániel Tóth-Nagy is claiming that he was simply exercising his “freedom of expression.” How quaint! There is no “freedom of expression” in Britain anymore. There is only Sharia-compliant refraining from all criticism of Islam, or else ostracism and vilification. Laggers such as Dániel Tóth-Nagy will learn the new rules before too long.

Is The Brexit Fiasco A Deep State Stitch Up?

by Barney Lane, posted on Quora

I think of “deep state” as being about the behind the scenes machinery of government; the inner workings of the civil service and secret negotiations of politicians.

In this piece, I argue that yes, the deep state has played its part, but the main issue is the weakness and susceptibility of our Prime Minister, to manipulation. In short, May has been soft and pliable with the EU, who know her as “Mrs No until she says Yes”, while being infuriatingly stubborn with her own party and country.

To start with, let’s consider what we know. For me, these are the relevant facts:

Leave won the 2016 referendum, Cameron resigned, the Tories appointed Theresa May as leader and Theresa May said she would deliver Brexit

Theresa May lost her majority in the 2017 General Election, meaning she would have to depend on the votes of all her own MPs plus those of the DUP to get legislation through

Theresa May sacked her advisers Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill, effectively replacing them with Olly Robbins, a civil servant. Shortly afterwards, she dropped DExEU from having a lead role in the exit negotiations, putting Olly Robbins in charge

Theresa May’s first notable move in the negotiations proper, was to accept without a fight, the EU’s sequencing demands. This was a major surprise. Notes of the meeting showed the EU delegation acting both surprised and delighted. Minutes show EU officials asking for reconfirmation that this was really the UK’s position

In late 2017, Theresa May allowed talk of remaining in the customs union to resurface, doing nothing to clarify the government’s policy, which was to leave the customs union

In December 2017, Theresa May signed a political agreement giving away £39 billion and signed us up to a “backstop” that would commit the UK to remaining under EU control until it had found a way of managing the customs border in Ireland, in a way that satisfied the EU

When the political declaration was converted into legal text, Theresa May said “no British PM could sign this”. This was the only thing of note, that Theresa May said about Brexit in the first half of 2018. She later did sign it

In mid-2018, Theresa May faced a backbench rebellion attempting to force legislation to keep us in the customs union. Theresa May invited the ringleader Dominic Grieve to Downing Street to persuade him to drop his rebellion. It is understood that she made him privy to a plan that was at this stage, not widely known. Dominic Grieve promptly dropped his rebellion

In July 2018, Theresa May held the Chequers summit where she unveiled the Brexit whitepaper. She told her government, the meeting would not end until everyone had agreed to it and if anyone resigned, ministerial transport would not be available for the trip home

The whitepaper horrified some ministers, who believed it amounted to a customs union in all but name. Boris Johnson resigned. David Davis resigned

In his resignation speech, Davis criticised May for sidelining his department, which had been set up to prepare the UK for its departure from the EU, while instead favouring her own civil service adviser Olly Robbins

In replying, Theresa May said Davis’s department had not come up with a workable plan

In an article in the Telegraph, Davis replied that this was deeply disingenuous. His department had a detailed and carefully worked out plan. It was she, the PM who had chosen to ignore it while developing her own alternative plan without telling anyone

Johnson wrote in the Telegraph, that Theresa May had allowed the Ireland border to become prominent in the negotiations because she had unquestioningly accepted the EU’s framing of the issue and had not even tried to find a solution

Come December 2018, the EU published their Withdrawal Agreement (WA). It was very similar to the Chequers whitepaper, except that it lacked the May/Robbins scheme for the UK collecting tariffs on behalf of the EU. The WA’s political declaration sought a future relationship that would build upon “the single customs territory”

Minutes of the meeting where Theresa May signed the WA showed that the EU had said “The customs union will be the basis for the future relationship. The EU will retain all control”. Theresa May had signed a document that she knew the EU interpreted as implying a permanent customs union, and in which the EU would retain full control

The WA was voted down three times by Parliament. Most notably, it was voted down by Brexit-supporting MPs who believed it was “not Brexit” and by the DUP who believed it had sold out their territory

The Brady amendment gave Theresa May a mandate to renegotiate the Ireland backstop, which keeps the UK in a customs union with the EU until the EU approves the UK’s plans for managing the border

May largely ignored this mandate, saying she would not attempt a renegotiation but instead, half-heartedly said she would “seek changes”

On the basis of the above, it is reasonable to conclude that the main reason Brexit (in this incarnation) has failed, is that Theresa May changed course. While her general stance was initially to the liking of Brexit supporting MPs, her final deal, was not.

Having lost her majority in parliament, she inevitably had to work harder to reconcile the interests of her MPs, who had different opinions. However, it is clear from the above that at each node of the decision tree, she leaned towards her remainer MPs. She didn’t tell anyone this was what she was doing or why, she just did it.

Her eventual WA was a death by a thousand cuts, non-Brexit Brexit. But what happened to make her change course? That’s the key question.

By any standard, her behaviour in office has been extraordinary. Consider where the Tories were at the start. Dominic Lawson wrote about this in the Sunday Times, this morning in Brexit on a plate — and the Tories blew it. [1]

Only two years ago the Tories were united under the firm but fair leadership of the headmistressy Theresa May, Farage had been rendered irrelevant and Labour was still riven by the shock of a referendum outcome that pitted it against the very people (the industrial working class) it was formed to represent.

Thus, in February 2017, this column was headlined “Cheer Up, Mr Cameron, you won your party the greatest prize imaginable”. The former PM was being ridiculed almost daily, and yet, I argued, while the referendum result had trashed his reputation as a political winner, he was actually the accidental author of a miraculous transformation in his party’s fortunes: “Unintentionally, Cameron has achieved for the Conservatives something a string of earlier leaders signally failed to do. He has made them the party that is united over the vexed question of the UK’s relationship with the European Union and — a completely unexpected bonus — turned Labour into a house divided on this issue.”

That aged well, didn’t it? In fact the second half of that analysis still holds true and explains Labour’s continuing inability to come up with a Brexit policy that could be communicated coherently (or at all) on an election leaflet. But that column was written at the moment of the party’s greatest discomfiture, the week after parliament passed the bill to invoke article 50 — giving us just two years (ha!) to negotiate our departure from the EU. Corbyn’s three-line whip ordering his MPs to back the government’s policy led to resignations from the shadow cabinet and thousands of party members quitting in protest.

The reason Theresa May’s behaviour has been so extraordinary is that she did not need to lean towards Remain in her implementation of Brexit. The Tories were united around a clean Brexit. That was the referendum result. That was what the manifesto said. It could not have been clearer. Even those who did not agree with the result of the referendum, accepted both it and the government’s interpretation of it.

When murmurings about a “softening” of Brexit started to emerge, May could have acted to silence them, reminding her MPs of their manifesto commitments, but she did not. From a parliamentary arithmetic point of view, it was far easier for her to lean towards her Brexiteer contingent than her Remain contingent. Leaning towards her Brexiteers would not have angered her Remainers as much as leaning towards her Remainers have angered her Brexiteers. All she needed to do was to maintain existing party policy, to which all her MPs had explicitly agreed by standing for election upon its manifesto.

What happened? Theresa May is well known as someone who can be “captured” by her advisers. Who were her advisers? Before the 2017 election, her advisers were Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill — both clean Brexit advocates. After the election, her advisers were Olly Robbins and — as far as one can tell — the EU. In the past 2 years, May has spent many hours in the offices of her fellow European leaders.

Now, there’s an element of deep state at work here. An anonymous civil servant wrote an article in the Telegraph titled “Believe me, the Civil Service is trying to sink Brexit. I have seen it from the inside”[2] He or she writes:

A quick scroll though the social media accounts of my colleagues and you will find images of them proudly waving ‘Remain’ placards, campaigning for a ‘People’s Vote’, boasting ‘Jez we can’ and of course the usual apocalyptic messages of doom since the Brexit vote. The double-standards are astonishing. If I so much as followed the activities of Nigel Farage, I have no doubt that I would be called in for questioning. I re-call one conversation with a senior member of staff at the Foreign Office who told me she was ashamed when Boris Johnson was appointed Foreign Secretary as he is so “typically British”.

This department is particularly notorious for its anti-Brexit bias. My experience tells me that there is a genuine hatred of those who voted for Brexit. I recall my first day in the Civil Service as a graduate, being invited to a meeting of senior members of staff who spent the good part of two hours in agreement that the public made a “stupid” decision in the EU referendum.

Unfortunately, this bias doesn’t end with snide insults and childish quips. It goes to the root of their day-to-day work and has truly negative impacts on the way we conduct the important tasks ahead of us. I have in fact come across senior staff working on our post-Brexit relationships who openly talk down the prospect of a UK-US FTA and encourage anti-Trump hysteria. Many of them even joined the protests against the President’s visit last year. During his visit it was common to hear jokes about Trump’s assassination from the very people meant to be working with our closest ally. The only thing worse than being pro-Brexit in the Civil Service is being pro-Trump.

But it doesn’t stop there. There is a strong presence of Anglophobia, combined with cultural Marxism that runs through the civil service. It has meant that many Civil Servants, including myself, have been actively discouraged from co-operating with Think Tanks which are seen as being “too right wing” despite sharing our goal of promoting free trade. This attitude also prevails in our work with our closest allies, particularly in the Commonwealth, where we are afraid to be seen as overly keen to work with countries that are run by “rich white men”.

Contrary to popular belief, Civil Servants often shape the views of Ministers. This makes the prevalent leftist culture within the Civil Service all the more concerning. These ardent remainer and left wing civil servants are the ones who provide the briefings, select the invites and choose the priorities for Ministers. How did we get to this point? The Civil Service is one of the biggest graduate employers, whilst universities have allowed a leftist culture of political correctness to flourish in recent decades.

Brexit is the greatest opportunity this country has faced in years, yet our Government machine is currently working from within to frustrate it. This must not go on. In the next phase of the Brexit negotiations it is vital our civil service ceases to allow the massive remain voting bias that has so far helped scupper our post-Brexit future.

Add to that the misuse of Treasury resources for giving misleading information about the economic consequences of Brexit — resources that were refused to other departments requesting them for no-deal preparations — and it’s clear there’s an element of deep state at work. However, it is the weakness and stubbornness of our Prime Minister, that is the most important part of the explanation.

It’s like a disease. If you’re unhealthy and have a weakened immune system, you are more susceptible to diseases. For most healthy people, flu can be an unpleasant few days in bed. For weakened people, it can be a killer.

That the civil service has worked to frustrate Brexit is both credible and predictable. However, it is the Prime Minister’s susceptibility to it, that has led to the failure of her attempt to deliver Brexit.

PM cancels Easter break for team negotiating with Labour in a bid to STOP Farage

Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, who s>uccessfully lobbied for a referendum on Britain's future in the EU and then led the Leave campaign to a surprising (but only to the political establishment and mainstream media,) victory launched his new Brexit Party this week to get MEPs elected in May now it appears certain that Mrs May's desperate efforts to overturn the result of the democratic vote have partially succeeded by gaining a delay in the date we actually leave. However, Mrs May is even more desperate to avoid Mr Farage and his party gaining a majority of UK seats in the European Parliament and to do that she has ordered her negotiators work through Easter in a bid to cobble together a dodgy deal with Jeremy Corbyn's far left Labour Party to get her thrice rejected 'brexit-in-name-only" deal accepted by the House of Commons before the new 22 May deadline. Mrs May cannot do that without Labour’s support and has infuriated her own party by betraying manifesto pledges to offer the left wing extremists of Labour sweetners that will win their support. Funny thing about the name May, it rhymes with betray. A Downing Street source
told The Sunday Mirror: “These talks have been constructive and serious and both sides want to see further progress over the Easter recess. If we can keep up the pace of negotiations, we can get a deal over the line and avoid having European elections.” Mr Farage is dead set on winning more seats than May and Corbyn’s parties in the European Parliament election. Writing in the Sunday Express today he said: “As time has gone on, this arrogant elite has stuck two fingers up at their own manifestos, lied to the electorate, and done everything possible to thwart the result. “They have concocted and confected all sorts of bogus arguments to try to kill Brexit. The sheer scale of their betrayal of the country is difficult to grasp.” He has called upon people to stop supporting the establishment if they want to see the 2016 referendum result to go through. He continued: “In light of this, the best option open to Brexiteers is to punish both of the Establishment parties and back The Brexit Party. The Conservatives and Labour have been as bad as each o.ther when it comes to choking off Brexit. In their own ways, both have connived to let down the upstanding citizens of Britain who voted to Leave in 2016“ Mr Farage has urged people to support his party in the upcoming election so that Brexit can be delivered.

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.

‘Stop blaming Britain, Brexit's YOUR fault!’ German MEP launches attack on EU leader

GERMAN MEP Hans-Olaf Henkel has lambasted Elmar Brok after the powerful politician wrote to him to complain about comments made in an interview with The Daily Express

Herr Henkel has accused Brok, along with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and top EU bureaucrats, of not doing enough to persuade Britain to stay in the bloc. Interviewed last week, Henkel, a member of the European Conservatives and Reformers in the European Parliament, made critical comments referring to an anti-British faction within the EU ledy by Brexit negotiators Michel Barnier and Guy Verhofstadt. He also singled out Juncker, and Brok, chairman of the influential European Parliament Committee on Foreign Affairs, as well as French President Emmanuel Macron for crioticism.

Henkel went further by accusing Juncker of laying blame for the failure to negotiate a Brexit settlement at the door of Britain, and criticised the Luxembourgisch drunk's description of former UK Prime Minister David Cameron as “one of the great destroyers of modern times”.

The comments atracted a quick response from Mr Brok who fired off a letter of complaint objecting to Henkel's characterisation of him as obsessed with federalisation. Henkel wasting no time in penning a response, writing: “Not only you, but many others in Brussels continue to lay the blame for Brexit solely on Britain.

“In the spring of 2010, the support for the EU in Britain was at an historic high. Nigel Farage's UKIP party won only two percent of the votes in the General Election and failed to win any seats in the House of Commons. By 2014, however, they scored 27 percent in the European elections! What happened in between?”

Britain had become increasingly alarmed by the centralisation of decision-making in Brussels, which he said “provided Nigel Farage with his stage to increase support for Euroscepticism in Britain”.

He added: “It became rather too easy for him, albeit with often unfair and distorting means, to point to existing examples of Brussels obsession with centralisation.

“The British, instead of witnessing EU acceptance of subsidiarity as laid down in the Lisbon Treaty, saw centralisation.”


Spain's Election Problem: Muslim population in Catalonia grew by 20% in 4 years As Spanish Nationals Are Marginalised

11 April, 2019

Catalonia has the fastest growing Muslim population in Spain – and more Islamic centres than any other region in the country. In spite of a strong separatist movement, the left has total hegemony in regional politics and the patriotic forces are being marginalised by the socialists, their elected politicians are excluded from key positions and known supporters are being fired from jobs and having trouble getting hired elsewhere, Defend Europa reports.

From 2011 to 2015, the number of Muslims in Catalonia has grown by 19.5%. That translates to 83,000 more people than 4 years ago. Not only that, the risk of terrorist attack has tripled in just this year (under the socialist government, almost 30,000 more Muslims, mostly uneducated, illiterate single males, have arrived). From 2011 to this year, the number of immigrants has doubled. They constitute more than one million people in a population of only 7 million.

This “wonderful” multiculturalism, the creation of the EU and being promoted by the socialist government in Madrid exploded in the Barcelona terrorist attacks of 2017. After seeing this, what was the reaction of the Catalan politicians? Well no, with the Catalan separatists hamstrung as the duopoly parties close ranks against them, its graft and corruption as usual in Spanish politics.

Campaigning for Spain’s general election, brought about when the minority socialist government, which gained power in a bloodless coup only last year, lost a confidence vote in the national Assembly. Campaingning for this election, to be held on April 28, begins on Friday this week and accusations of political espionage described as the country’s ‘Watergate', external meddling and breaches of electoral law are flying in all directions.

Last month Spain’s judiciary launched a probe into an alleged conspiracy by secret police and the former conservative government led by Mariano Rajoy to smear the reputation of the left-wing Podemos party founded in 2014.

On April 1 Spain’s Socialist administration claimed to have deactivated the so-called “patriotic brigade” of senior police officers. “The sewers no longer exist,” said Interior Minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska. But Podemos’s leader Pablo Iglesias has since claimed the dirty tricks campaign against his party did not end when the more ideologically-aligned Socialist Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez came to power last June.

Last weekend Mr Sánchez’s deputy press officer, Alberto Pozas, was summoned by a judge in connection with the theft of data from a mobile phone belonging to Mr Iglesias’s former aide. The phone was stolen in November 2015, weeks before the first general election in which Podemos took part, when Mr Pozas was editor of a now-defunct sensationalist news weekly called Interviú.

Investigators found data from the mobile phone among the files of former police officer José Manuel Villarejo, jailed since 2017 while a court probes his role as alleged leading member of the “patriotic brigade”.

Among a series of accusations against Mr Villarejo, the former police commissioner is believed to have staged a phony police probe into alleged financing for Podemos from the Iranian and Venezuelan governments.

And so it will go on until election day and a vote, which in common with the last three general elections in Spain is likely to throw up an inconclusive result. Did you really think the UK is the only European nation where democracy is in crisis?

Farage Says New Brexit Party Will Spark "A Political Revolution" And Terrify The Tories

the daily stirrer
Nigel Farage (Picture: www.dailymail.co.uk )

Nigel Farage, who led the successful Brexit campaign, warned backsliding elitist politicians on Tuesday that his brexit Party would spark a political "revolution" - a cliched line but appropriate given the mood of the country - and strike fear into the hearts of ineffectual Tories who have so far failed to deliver on the promise of the Brexit referendum if the UK is forced to contest EU Parliament elections as part of Prime Minister Theresa May's, the Sun newspaper reports.

In an interview with the Sun, Farage confirmed the official launch of the Brexit Party would happen during an event in Coventry on Friday. He promised the new party would contest every region in the May 23 European Parliamentary elections, which he is sure will happen if the UK is granted another Article 50 extension. He spoke as Theresa May (it rhymes with betray,) was in Brussels begging for more time to get her Brexit-in-name-only deal throgh parliament after it has already failed three times. Any extension the EU offers is likely to be laden with more unacceptable terms and conditions.

The Brexit party, Farage said, would dedicate itself to leading a fighting back against "the betrayal of democracy" by May and the Conservative Party she leads and the opposition Labour and Liberal Democrat prties. Though a twitter account for the Brexit Party, Farage added that if you supported Brexit, "both parties have failed you."

Farage says that beyond resuing Brexit from Remainers of both the Conservative and Labour Parties who have been determined to overturn the referendum result, the goal of the Brexit Party is to upend the British two-party system in its current form. His announcement followed remarks from Tory Brexiteer MP Anne Morris, who said she might vote for the Brexit Party if European elections happen.

Threat Of Major Scandal Prompted Early Election Move – UKIP
Leaders of the (UKIP) have made astonishing claim that Prime Minister Teresa May’s calling an early General Election was done to pre-empt a series of by-elections that could be called following alleged electoral fraud. Accusing the Conservative government of “putting party before country”, UKIP appeared to suggest the scandal and ensuing disqualification of MPs could rob the government of its slender majority.

Fury as May set to accept a one - year Brexit delay and give Corbyn more influence in exchange for his support

Theresa May - it rhymes with betray
Theresa May - it rhymes with betray - picture: www.express.co.uk

Prime Minister Theresa May (it rhymes with betray,) is planning to face down Conservative Party members demanding her resignation by staying in Downing Street as long as it takes to deliver Brexit via her dodgy deal that has been rejected three times by parliament, reliable sources in the Conssrvative Party have revealed.

Amid angry clashes at an emergency summit of EU summit in Brussels tonight, the Prime Minister looks set to agree a delay of up to a year in the UK’s departure from the bloc. She is expected to enrage her Brexiteer Tory critics by announcing that she will step up her cross-party talks with Labour in the effort to thrash out a new exit strategy. But her allies say she intends to defy party rebels who want her to stand aside immediately by carrying on in her job until she can ensure the country’s withdrawal from the EU.

European leaders were locked in heated debate late into the night at the emergency EU Council meeting called to address the Brexit stalemate at Westminster. French President Emmanuel Macron repeatedly argued against the flexible arrangement put forward by leading figures in the Brussels bureaucracy, that would allow the UK to leave the bloc as soon as an exit agreement can be passed by MPs.

But the delay can only intensify Tory demands for the Prime Minister to set a date for her departure from Downing Street and harden attitudes among the majority of British voters who supported leave. Several unofficial activist groups have already warned of civil unrest similar to that associated with Frence's Yellow Vests movement, such is the level of anger in the country at the politucal establishment's betrayal of the democratic will. A Conservative Party source said the Prime Minister was determined to remain in her post until “phase one of the negotiations”, which covers the exit from the EU, is concluded before standing aside to make way for a successor to negotiate the future relationship with the bloc.

“She understands that the Conservative Party feels the sense that a new leadership is required for the second phase of negotiations,” the source said.That was the commitment she gave to her party colleagues and it’s one she stands by.” Unfortunately for the party and the country this stupid, stubborn, talentless woman is diven only by personal ambition. This blog does not believe she has any intention of resigning and will have to be draggged, kicking and screaming, out of Downing Street before we can get past her hopeless deal, which some allege was dictated by Angela merkel, and move to a no deal exit from the EU.

Mrs May's allies say she recognises the “urgency” of delivering Brexit and was determined to swiftly build a parliamentary alliance for her Withdrawal Agreement that could ensure the country leaves the EU by June 30. This, like verything about May's leasdership, is dishonest. If she recognised the urgency of delivering Brexit she would shut the fuck up and we would leave with no deal in two days time and trade with EU members on WTO terms.

Former Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith yesterday insisted Mrs May must not be allowed to “drift on” in office after accepting a lengthy Brexit delay. He warned she could face another second no-confidence vote in the Commons which could force her out. Well at least somebody sees the urgency of kicking her out before she signs a treaty with Mertkel making the UK a province of Germany.



Slash taxes now, French tells Macron after three-month 'great debate'

the daily stirrer

France must slash taxes now, or face ongoing civil unrest. According to the French prime minister, this is the main message from an unprecedented three-month “great debate” in the wake of anti-government “yellow vest” protests. Announcing publication of the findings from two million online contributions and 10,000 hours of town hall debates around the country, Edouard Philippe said on Monday there was “huge discontent” in the country. Astronomical levels of taxation was one of the prime concerns, alongside unemployment, immigration, and surrender of national sovereignty to the European Union.

"The debate clearly shows us in which direction we need to go: we need to lower taxes and lower them faster," Mr Philippe said, addressing fellow politicians and the meadia at the Grand Palace in Paris.

Easing the tax burden was one of the four prinicipal demands, the prime minister said. This was predictable as it was recently revealed France is the most highly taxed nation in the world. Others are: restoring ties between urban and provincial France; more grassroots democracy, and tackling climate change without punishing the poor (another reference to Marcon's green taxes.

He also hinted at a reversal of a new 80kph (50mph) speed limits on B-roads, seen by many yellow vests as a ploy to fleece rural motorists by using sped traps as a stealth tax. “I wanted to save lives (but) was accused of seeking to fill the coffers,” he said. “I must learn to deal with incomprehension or rejection.”

This was disingenuous of Phillipe, in France as throughout the developed world, statistics show that far more fatalities occur in accidents where the cars are travelling under the speed limit.

The "yellow vest” revolt, which got its name from the high-vis vests worn by demonstrators, erupted in small-town France in mid-November in protest at fuel tax hikes, justified by claims that discouraging car use would curb CO2 emissions. It escalated into anger against President Emmanuel Macron's green taxes and escalated into violent riots in Paris on a scale not seen since the student uprising of May 1968.

The 41-year-old centrist ex-banker stunned France by becoming president in 2017 despite never holding elected office. He instantly rushed through pro-business reforms to encourage job creation while partially doing away with a “wealth tax”, earning him a reputation as a "president of the rich.”

But in the face of gilets jaunes fury, some question whether his reforming zeal remains intact, or whether he is desperatly trying to hold on to power after he tried unsuccessfully to placate protesters with €10bn (£8.6bn) in sweeteners and has since launched the equally futile 'great debate'.

Mr Philippe said the findings suggested the Macron government had made the right diagnosis but had not been fast or “clear” enough in hacking at the taxation rate, which at 46.2 per cent of GDP is the highest in the world, according to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development. Most people in France would disagree and see Marcon being ousted before his five - year term of office is complete.


Europe’s Nationalists Unite Behind Salvini Ahead Of EU Elections

With the EU elections due in May this year expected to deliver another body blow to the dream of a Federal European superstate, Europe's more conservative nationalist parties have today announced an alliance that is aiming to become the strongest group in the European Parliament, with a view to forcing to radical reform on the EU bureaucracy in Brussels, which dictates policy on security, migration, family and the environment, according to Euro News.

From left, Olli Kotro, leader of The Finns Party, Jörg Meuthen, leader of Alternative For Germany party, Matteo Salvini, Italian deputy-Premier and leader of the League party, and Anders Vistisen, leader of the Danish People's Party
"The news is that we are broadening the community, the family. We are working for a new European dream today. For many Europeans, the EU (European Union) is a nightmare," Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini told reporters following a meeting of Europe's nationalist party leaders in Milan. Salvini is spearheading the alliance, called "Towards a Europe of Common Sense," which he says he hopes will "win and change Europe."
Salvini was joined Monday by the far-right Alternative for Germany’s co-leader Joerg Meuthen, Olli Kotro of the euroskeptic populist party The Finns, and Anders Vistisen of the right-wing, populist Danish People’s Party. Those parties now come from other parliamentary groups, the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) and the Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy (EFDD). -AP
The alliance hopes to form a majority bloc following the May 23-26 elections - "the most numerous, important, determined and forward-looking group," according to Salvini.

"We are not aiming to lose or just participate. Our goal is to win and change the rules of Europe."

Europe’s right-wing populist parties are currently divided into three groups: The Europe of Nations and Freedom (ENF) group — which includes Italy's the League, France's National Rally, Austria's Freedom Party and the Netherlands' Party for Freedom — the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR), which groups the Danish People's Party and the Finns Party among others, and the Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy (EFDD), which has the Alternative for Germany (AfD) and the UK's Brexit Party . -Euro News

The group's top priorities are a halt to all illegal immigration, restore political sovereignty to EU nations, protect "European culture," and enforce stronger European border controls. They see the main threat to Europe as Islamic extremism.

"As interior minister for 10 months, the No. 1 risk in Italy and Europe is Islamic extremism, Islamic fanaticism, Islamic terrorism," said Salvini. "There are extreme-right and extreme-left minorities in Italy and in Europe, (but) they fortunately are controlled and of limited numbers."

Salvini rejected the notion that the groups in his alliance are filled with political extremists bent on totalitarian rule. The far - right extremists narrative is of course purely left wing scaremongering by people who describe any suggestion that immigration should be controlled as racist and fascistic.

"Today at this table there are no nostalgic extremists," Salvini said, adding: "The only nostalgics are in power in Brussels. Today, we look ahead with a clear memory of what happened in the past, but the tired debate of right, left, fascist, communist, is not what makes us passionate."

Political experts say the May 23-26 European Parliament vote could prove to be a tipping point in post-war European politics, if traditional political powerhouses lose support and extremist, populist parties gain more clout.

The vote, which involves 705 seats this year, is run as national ballots in each of the bloc’s states. National political parties with common ideology then unite in EU-wide groups, like the center-right EPP, the center-left S&D Socialists or the liberal, pro-business ALDE.

The new euroskeptic alliance, launched under the banner “Toward a Europe of common sense,” expands on the parliament’s four-year-old Europe of Nations and Freedom Group (ENF), which already includes France’s far-right National Rally, Austria’s Freedom Party and the Netherland’s Party for Freedom. -AP

The alliance, which is holding a rally on May 18 in Milan's central Piazza Duomo, says their invitation is open to all like-minded parties who wish to join the faction. If they win a majority in the EU elections, the group would cancel for good the process of inviting Turkey to become a member of the European Union - a process which has been stalled for years. Commenting on this, Salvini said Turkey is nothing to do with Europe, apart from a small enclave around Istanbul, Turkey is on the Asian continental land mass and is different religiously and culturally from anywhere in Europe.

Leave would win again in 2nd referendum Diane Abbott admits

BBC interviewer Justin Webb lost it with Diane Abbott during an angry exchange over whether another Brexit referendum vote was one of Labour’s “red lines” as negotiations with Theresa May's 'Remain at any cost' negotiating team continue to debate a way forward with members of Jeremy Corbyn's far - left Labour Party, to try to deliver Britain's exit from the EU. The senior Labour politician admitted Britain WOULD vote to leave the EU AGAIN given a second referendum.

Abbott refused to say whether Brits having the final say on any Brexit deal was one of the party'd demands in EU brexit talks with the Government. She was pressed by a BBC host. The Labour Party has been engaged in negotiations with the Conservative Government this week after Theresa May reached out to Jeremy Corbyn to try to get Brexit over the line, which sparked fury among many in the Conservative Party. Speaking on BBC’s Today programme, the shadow home secretary was quizzed over whether a second Brexit vote was a “necessity” of the negotiations with the Government, before she admitted Leave would likely win again.

Ms Abbott said: “The Labour Party is united on the fact a People’s Vote is still on the table, that is the conference position.”

Pressed by Webb on whether any agreement with the Government must have a second vote attached to it, Ms Abbott said: "We are not saying anything definitively but we have a position."

The BBC host snapped back: “Hold on a second, if you had a position you would be saying it definitively wouldn’t you?

“Lots of your support, I imagine quite a lot of people listening now, would be saying, ‘we need another vote and we need Labour, which is overwhelmingly supported actually by people who would like another opportunity to say they want to remain in the EU, we need to have an opportunity to say that’.”

Ms Abbott replied: “People’s Vote was part of the policy package we passed at conference. Of course, you can have different types of People’s Vote, you can have what is called a confirmatory ballot, where you get a deal and you put it back to the people. That’s a standard trade union process, you negotiate a deal, then you bring it back to your members for a vote.

“Or you could have a People’s Vote if you thought it was the only way to stop a no deal Brexit, but the principle of the Labour Party supports some kind of People’s Vote was set out in the policy agreed at conference.”

The BBC host, who was completely wrong to suggest that Labour voters overwhelmingly want a new vote, typically of BBC news department he was looking only at the section of the population domiciled in London while the majority of Labour voters outside London want 'No Deal'. Webb also demanded Ms. Abbott tell him if the British people having another vote after negotiations was a “red line” for Labour's negotiators.

Ms Abbott said Labour was a “member led party and the members are being clear on this question of some kind of People’s Vote, so it has to be part of our negotiations with the Government.”

Unofficial sources say the talks between Labour and the government have broken down but both sides insist the discussions will reopen in Monday morning.

Currency Wars: Former UN Under-Secretary-General Calls For One World Currency

In this page, we have covered US attempts to expolit its position as issurer of the global reserve currency, and the moves by China and Russia to resist that. Moves to establish the US$ as a true global currency began a long time ago with the creation of the International Monetary Fund at the Bretton Woods conference in the final months of World War 2, with Germany defeated and the world ready to split into capitalist and communist factions...READ ALL >>>


Harold MacMillan

This blog and its partners in the Greenteeth Digital Publishing family has never been shy about sharing our belief that the European Union is, and was from the start designed to be, a vehicle for German domination of Europe. Germany is a young nation, until the 1870s it was a collection of Kingdoms, Principalities, Grand Duchies and city states that had cultural links but no political cohesion. The most powerful of these stakes was the Prussian Empire, a militaristic society run by its aristocrats and headed by despotic Kaisers. When the Prussian Chancellor, Count Otto von Bismarck set about uniting Germany, he had one aim, to create a pan Germanic state to rival France and Britain. Germany, Bismarck and his Prussian colleagues believed, was a nation of superior being destined to dominate Europe (and by extension the world)and that belief apparently still prevails among Germany's ruling elite. Does all that sound a bit familiar? Harold MacMillan, British Prime Minister from 1957 to 1963 gave us a chilling warning about the EEC – (European Economic Community) the precursor to the EU – before Britain joined the bloc, claiming that Germany had planned on using the trading bloc, originally called the European Coal and Steel Community, then The Common Market as an instrument to assert its supremacy across the continent once more, it can be revealed. After Britain joined while it was the EEC, another name change had it becoming the European Community, then with the signing of the Maastricht Treaty in 1995 the European Union was formed (not the pattern of progression towards ever more grandiose ambitions in those titles,) and the plan that had been the founders goal from days one, "ever closer integration," towards the creation of a federal union, The United States Of Europe, was openly declared. On Wednesday, 3 April, 2019, five days after we should have left the European Union by default having failed to agree mutually acceptable terms for the future relationship with the fledgling Fourth Reich, the UK's elected representatives, The House of Commons voted in favour of legislation which forces the Government to request another extension for 'Brexit', giving our current Prime Minister Theresa May (it rhymes with betray,) more time to trample on the British constitution and show us the comtempt the ruling elite have for the principles of democracy.

Hijab wearing, Jihad supporting U.S. Congresswoman refuses to condemn stoning of gays.

ilhan-omar-ap-img Ilhan Omar (with Bernie Sanders behind thinking "I wouldn't mind giving her a taste of my pork sausage) - picture credit www.thenation.com

It had to happen, and it was always going to be great comedy value when it did. U.S Liberals were always going to face the moment when their love of Gays, Lesbians and Trannies clashed head to head with their love of terrorists and the Islamic Jihad.

When hijab wearing, Jihad supporting Muslim woman Ilhan Omar was elected to the US Congress in spite of her strongly anti - American opinions, Liberals were creaming their pants and hailing a great victory in the struggle for equality, diversity and multicultruralism. Poor fools are terminally hypocritical in their virtue signalling, how else could they simultaneously claim to support gay rights clauses and the fanatical supporters of a religious sect that imposes a death sentence on gays. Anyone with more brain cells than testicles or tits as the case may be, would have to be aware that support for the LGBT community and support for fundamentalist Islam are incompatible.

The new intake of elected represenatatives were sworn in and took office in late January, so it has not taken long for the truth of Islam top bite the minority loving liberals on the arse.

Condemned many times by Democratic colleagues for her anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, repeating arguments used by Nazi Germany to jusify anti - Semitism and using anti-Semitic tropes. Omar has compared Israel to the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism in media interviews where she also suggested that Israel should not be allowed to exist as a Jewish state.

Conservative news site The Daily Wire contacted Omar’s office on Friday to give them a chance to respond to allegations that she had expressed support for the stoning and flogging of homosexuals in compliance with Sharia law, and notified them that a non-response would be considered a ‘refusal to condemn’ these acts. Omar’s office again did not respond to the inquiries.”

Omar’s obviously realizes that she is widely regarded as anti-Semitic, and if she isn’t, should have responded to the allegations and made that clear. Her non-response is in keeping with the Leftist and Islamic supremacist practice of never according opponents even basic human respect and courtesy, a Leninist/Alinskyite practice that has echoes in Muhammad’s behavior toward Infidels, and is intended to dehumanize and marginalize them.

But Omar does not just imply her guilt by silence, she also actively expresses her support for the vile, inhumane treatment of certain minorities under Islamic Sharia Law:

“Omar Refuses To Condemn Gays Being Stoned To Death Under Sharia Law, Violence Against Israel From Hamas,” by Ryan Saavedra, Daily Wire, March 29, 2019:

“This is abhorrent and inhumane,” Omar tweeted of the conditions in which a group of detained migrants was being kept. “It’s without a doubt a reflection of what white nationalism is doing to our country. As a country, we have to acknowledge that this is how people are being treated here and decide that we are better and we must do better.”

Following Omar’s remarks, The Daily Wire reached out to her office via phone and email to get her thoughts on two recent news items.

The first story comes from Brunei, where Sultan of Brunei Hassanal Bolkiah has said that new Sharia laws that are going into effect are a form of “special guidance” from God, according to Sky News.

The nation is going to introduce death by stoning as a punishment for gay sex and “amputation for those guilty of theft under sharia law, with both penalties to also apply to children once implemented.”

The second story comes out of the Middle East, where the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas recently fired 20 rockets into Israel and destroyed the homes of innocent civilians.

The Daily Wire asked Omar if she could provide comment on either story and if she found either of these acts to be “abhorrent and inhumane.”

The Daily Wire also asked Omar if she would say that these acts are due to radical Islam.

Omar and her office refused to respond to multiple requests for comment.

So which way do American liberals (and certain university brainwashed idiots in Britain (yes Owen fucking Jones I mean you and the negative - IQ morons who follow you, which way do you jump. Is killing people for being gay OK with you, or do you finally agree with the wiser voices you have spent so long condemning and accept there is no room for a religion that advocates barbaric treatment of women and sexual minorities in civilised society.

Millions Of Facebook Records Found On Amazon Cloud Servers

Bloomberg reports that researchers at UpGuard, a cybersecurity firm, found troves of user information hiding in plain sight, inadvertently posted publicly on Amazon.com’s cloud computing servers. The discovery shows that a year after the Cambridge Analytica scandal exposed how unsecure and widely disseminated Facebook users’ information is online, companies that control that information at every step still haven’t done enough to seal up private data.

Coming on the back of urging the government to take over regulating his responsibilities and remove his accountabilities, Bloomberg notes that in one instance, Mexico City-based media company Cultura Colectiva openly stored 540 million records on Facebook users, including identification numbers, comments, reactions and account names.

The problem of accidental public storage could be more extensive than those two instances. UpGuard found 100,000 open Amazon-hosted databases for various types of data, some of which it expects aren’t supposed to be public.

“The public doesn’t realize yet that these high-level systems administrators and developers, the people that are custodians of this data, they are being either risky or lazy or cutting corners,” said Chris Vickery, director of cyber risk research at UpGuard.

"Not enough care is being put into the security side of big data."

Notably, the UpGuard page that Bloomberg is referencing is now '404'.

Leaked Document Reveals Unacceptable Demands Made By EU Ahead Of Final Talks Before Brexit Deadline

A Top Secret document has revealed three totally unacceptable concession the EU is demanding from the UK before beginning fresh talks on Brexit ahead of the 12 april dealine for us to leave without a deal. According to a memo seen by the Sunday Times, the Brussels bureaucrats are demanding that the UK must continue to pay its share of the EU budget after we have left, must implement new measures on citizens’ rights, and sign a legally binding agreement to arrangements to avoid a hard border between Northern Ireland and The Republic.

Donald Tusk will call a summit of EU leaders on April 10, two days ahead of the dealine for the UK leaving without a deal. The European Council president has warned the UK must come up with a clear “way forward” to halt a disorderly exit. Cynics might put it more honestly and say Tusk is demanding total surrender.

To comply with the new conditions and prevent a no deal conclusion, Theresa May will need to push her deal dodgy, Brexit In Name Only deal through the Commons. This is the deal so far rejected on three separate occasions by MPs.

One un-named official speaking to the Sunday Times said they doubt the UK will be able to deliver. The source said: “It depends on whoever is in No 10 next week.”

A spokesman for the European Commission said: “A no-deal scenario on April 12 is now a likely scenario. The EU is fully prepared for a no-deal scenario at midnight on April 12.”

Senior EU representatives also say the UK is likely to crash out of the bloc. One said: “It’s an accelerating political meltdown in London.”

Martin Selmayr, Secretary-General of the European Commission, told representatives markets must be reassured the bloc is prepared for a no deal and it must be made clear the UK is to blame for a chaotic exit. In fact the opposite is true, it is widely known that EU negotitors Michel barnier and Guy Verhofstadt, President Tusk and Genaral Secretary Selmayr are all in the cam that has believed from the outset britain must be punished for voting to leave.

BREXIT vs. GREXIT – The Truth About The European Union And How It Treats Members
The only thing that will halt the European Union in its tracks, stop the push beyond Europe's geographical borders and prevent EU expansion to incorporate Asian, middle eastern and north African nations is war.

The Hypocrisy and Snobbery Of The Remain Campaign And The Antidote

My blog colleagues and I decided to assemble this collection of our articles (with some long extracts quoted from public domain and creative commons sources) to help people misled by the REMAIN campaign into thinking the arguments are solely economic.

EU Vows To Use Powers To Block All Elected ‘Far Right’ Politicians From Power
