Human Rights Tyranny: Have Wealthy Liberal And Left Wing Activists Destroyed Equality In Law

We have wriiten on the human rights tyrants of the authoritarian, fascistic liberal and progressive left many times. Lawyers, celebrities, media luvvies and politicians seem determined to destroy the basic principle of free speech, freedom of information and equality before the law that underpin democracy in the causeof turning every minority into a privileged caste. But can democratic societies withstand the assault. We seem to be heading for a fragmented, dystopian future.

Human Rights bombshell dropped by Theresa May’s government while the media whined on about Traingate

Thus screeched a headline at The Canary, a hard left news website. The writer, Kerry Anne Mendoza, who has never knowingly written an unbiased word and trades in distortions, half - truths and misdirection, went on to gove the impression that the "evil Conservative gobvernment" is about to strip British citizens of all human and civil rights while 'evil right wing media' obesess over Jeremy Corbyn's newly revealed hypocrisy.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Let's look as a sample of Ms. Mendoxas hyperventialing, outrages prose and then I'll compare it with the reality.

While the mainstream media joined Richard Branson’s smear campaign against Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn, the Conservative government dropped a bombshell. It is going to scrap the Human Rights Act.

On Wednesday 24 August, the front pages of almost every national newspaper – from The Telegraph to The Guardian – were railing against one thing, Traingate. Despite the fact that all of these outlets regularly report the plights of commuters on packed trains – commuters who have paid thousands of pounds a year for a season ticket which fails to guarantee them the dignity of a seat – suddenly this was all forgotten.

What they failed to mention was the most authoritarian and regressive decision taken by a UK government in modern history: the decision to push ahead with the scrapping of the Human Rights Act.

What is the Human Rights Act?

The Human Rights Act of 1998 guarantees every UK citizen the opportunity to defend themselves in domestic courts under rights granted them by the European Convention on Human Rights. As Liberty lays out, these are the rights given by the Act:

The right to life – protects your life, by law. The state is required to investigate suspicious deaths and deaths in custody;

The prohibition of torture and inhuman treatment – you should never be tortured or treated in an inhuman or degrading way, no matter what the situation;

Protection against slavery and forced labour – you should not be treated like a slave or subjected to forced labour; The right to liberty and freedom – you have the right to be free and the state can only imprison you with very good reason – for example, if you are convicted of a crime;

The right to a fair trial and no punishment without law – you are innocent until proven guilty. If accused of a crime, you have the right to hear the evidence against you, in a court of law ...

And Ms Mendoza goes on in that vein ...

It's all bollocks of course.

The Canary is a hard line leftist site and the heavily spun reports they publish can be ignored. It has long been known that the EUROPEAN Human Rights Act was to be abandoned so the story is not news. Repealing the act is a move that will return to British control the ability to deport foreign terrorists, hate preachers and criminals. No longer will people wanted for murder in their own country be able to avoid justice by claiming they ‘have a right to family life’. Nor should the fact that some criminals face the death penalty in their homeland be a defence against deportation. Being allowed to get away with murder is not a human right.

Scotty is right to ask (a rhetorical question I guess) did we not have the true human rights covered by the act enshrined in British law prior to jointing the European Human Rights fiasco. We did, most of them are in fact derived from the Geneva Convention of 1949. Some of that was actually based on the Liber Judicialis, the Anglo Saxon common law implemented by King Alfred the Great in the ninth century. Most of what has been added by the European Human Rights act has little to do with ‘rights’ and much to do with assigning privileges to favoured minorities.

In it’s Article 10 purportedly protecting free speech, the European Act adds this caveat: “This article shall not prevent States from requiring the licensing of broadcasting, television or cinema enterprises.”

In other words you have the right to speak freely but the government has the right to control information. We are better off without freedoms like that.

Another point to remember is that under The Common Law and the laws of most democratic nations, people are free to do anything that is not specifically prohibited by law. Under European law you are forbidden to do anything that is not specifically permitted by law.

That in itself shows how corrupt and illiberal the European Human Rights law is.

And for the record, it was Jeremy Corbyn himself who planted the story about having to sit on the floor. Though he had a valid point about crowded trains, it turns out the story was not quite as he told it and that was newsworthy.

The sooner The Canary is exposed to a high level of firedamp the better.

‘Shut Up’, Conservative Historian Tells Celebrity Human Rights Activists

by Arthur Foxake

Amal Clooney, a celebrated Human Rights lawyer who happens to be the wife of Hollywood star George Clooney’s has been told in no uncertain terms by History Professor, TV Presenter and conservative leaning motormouth Dr. David Starkey to STF up. According to Breitbart London Dr. Starkey believes left wing activist judges and lawyers like Mrs Clooney have together created a society where people are preoccupied with human rights and do not consider their duties to others in scial communities.

Dr Starkey, who recently published ‘Magna Carta: The True Story Behind The Charter‘, says that the balance set up by the charter 800 years ago between the rights of individuals and their duty to society, which began with the Magna Carta, has now been disrupted by politically correct thinking and the social engineering experiments of governments too reliant on academics for policy advice.

Starkey claims activist judges and lawyers are to blame for this, accusing them of hijackin the European Convention on Human Rights to extend it beyond the purpose proposed by its authors, including Winston Churchill. Churchill was instrumental in devising the document after World War 2, the intention being to safeguard human rights by law. For that to work of course, there could only be one law per nation, not several legal codices applying to different minorities.

Starkey did not confine the criticism to Hollywood WAG Mrs Clooney, although she has been shamelessly exploiting her husband's superstar status to promote her favourite anointed minorities, he in cluded Shami Chakrabarti, Director of human rights charity Liberty. He claimed that the balance could be restored if "the Amal Clooneys and Shami Chakrabartis would shut up."

Starkey’s intervention and his claim that activists like Amal Clooney and Shami Chakrabarti over-promote human rights to the detriment of true equality comes as the public debate begins on the Conservative government’s intedned repealing of the 1998 Human Rights Act. The government believes a new approach is needed because left wing activism has diverted attenion from tackling the human rights abuses of totalitarian governments, such as torture and genocide towards trivial domestic matters such as whether or not conviced criminals serving jail time should have the right to vote.

Back In 1971 Libertarians Were Predicting Debit Cards Would Become A Spy Tool For Authoritarian Governments

by Ian R Thorpe

The powers that be are pushing for a cashless society although some of the technology involved is hardly fit for purpose. But will going cashless and totally digital really be a benign move towards a safer, more convenient world, or will it amount to a monstrous invasion of privacy and a curtailment of personal liberty?

In this article on Wikinuts, our editor looks at the way a cashless society would allow government agencies, QUANGOs (Quasi - Autonomous Non - Governmental Organisations) and corporate undertakings willing to pay technology companyies such as search engine operators and social media enterprises for the personal data they collect to know far more about your lifestyle and spending habits than you would willingly share with them.

Privatization of Water as an Owned Commodity Rather Than a Universal Human Right

Not so long ago, towards the end of last year, I used the words of John Lennon to provide a perspective on the psychopathic views expressed by the CEO of one of the world's leading food processing companies. Lennon said, "Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I'm liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That's what's insane about it"

He spoke the truth of course and what's worse, when he died in 1981 things were a lot less insane that they are now.

I used that quote in a short blog post highlighting a statement made by the boss of Nestlé who was expressing the view that water cannot be owned by everything and must be privatised so greedy, fascistic corporations like the one he runs can profit from it. (See the blog post with video)

The question of when water becomes property is one that nobody has yet attempted to answer. The US Government has already taken to jailing people for collecting in barrels rainwater that falls on the rooves of their home and outbuilding, for building ponds on their land to collect rainfall and for allowing farm animals to drink public property from streams and lakes.

We did warn of what was on the way, everything the increasingly tyrannical administration of The Emperor Obama are doing in violation of the US Constitution and The Geneva Convention was detailed in the policy document released by the United Nations under the title Agenda 21 which promises the abolition of private property.

It will be interesting to see how Obama plans to seek rstitution from the Sun, when our star's rays cause rainclouds, or government assets of surface water to evaporate, thus destroying valuable resources the government planned to license to corporate water merchants when the vapour had condensed enough to fall to earth. They are still working on that one, meanwhile the idea that water is not a naturally occuring thing but an economic asset is taking hold.

What Privacy Will You Have When You Can't Shop Without Submitting To Biometric Identification?

What Privacy Will You Have When You Can't Shop Without Submitting To Biometric Identification?

The Daily Stirrer has long been on the case of the people pushing for a total surveillance society. "If you've done nothing wrong you have nothing to fear," the authorities assure us, "its for your own dafety and security they say. We say BOLLOCKS, it is about power and control. One of our main contributors worked in Informatuon technology at a very high level for many years, he tells us he and colleagues who of a similar classical liberal and libertarian mindset warned then that the way the industry was going would give fascistic corporate and political leaders a perfect tool for controlling society and suppressing freedoms and civil liberties.

One of the basic human rights guaranteed by interational law under the Geneva convention is the right to privacy. But when we see the kind of society Our New Unhappy Lords are planning for us in the future, it seems we have been stripped of that along with other rights without our even realising it. Take a look at this:

div class="quote"

from Investment Watch:
In some areas of the world, payment systems that require palm scanning or face scanning are already being tested. We have entered an era where biometric security is being hailed as the “solution” to the antiquated security methods of the past. We are being promised that the constant problems that hackers are causing with our credit cards, bank accounts, ATM machines and Internet passwords will all go away once we switch over to biometric identification. And without a doubt, we have some massive security problems that need to be addressed. But do you really want a machine to read your face or your hand before you are able to buy anything, sell anything or log on to the Internet? Do you really want “the system” to be able to know where you are, what you are buying and what you are doing at virtually all times? Biometric security systems are being promoted as “cool” and “cutting edge”, but there is also potentially a very dark side to them that should not be ignored.

In this day and age, identity theft has become a giant problem. Being able to confirm that you are who you say that you are is a very big deal. To many, biometric security presents a very attractive solution to this problem. For example, the following is a brief excerpt from a recent Fox News article entitled “Biometric security can’t come soon enough for some people”

There are many gullible people out there who will say, "Well I don't care who knows what brand of soup I buy or whose books I read." Such complacency may seem "kewl" but consider this; some time ago I wanted to post an article about paydays loans, the scandalous interest rates they charge, how they work and the ruinous consequences of failing to repay for people who are often among the poorest in society. So never having felt the need to take our a payday loan, I did some research online. And for several months after that I was bombarded with spam emails from payday loan companies.

Now I had not applied for a payday loan, had not even given my email address when looking at the sites of short term loan providers, and most of my reasearch was done on websites highly critical of this type of lending, so how did the advertising servers know about me.

That is one aspect of the loss of privacy we have already suffered that ought to jolt people out of their complacency. On top of that however, consider how many times you have heard politicians talk about using the web to "nudge" people into making better lifestyle choices. And then put that in perspective by recalling how for several decades we were "nudged" towards eating "healthy low fat spreads" instead of butter or lard, the saturated fats and which we were told furred up our arteries. And all the time it was the healthy options (which chemically are the nearest industry can get to producing aterial plaque) combined with highly refined sugar that furred up our arteries. Saturated fats, that our ancestors ate for a million years as they evolved from ignorant knuckle draggers to creatures who walked on the moon, when consumed in moderation as part of a mixed diet pose no increased risk of heart disease.

The misrepresentation of health risks involved with diet are a fine example of why we cannot ever trust government or corporate propaganda, another is Genetically Modified foods. We have been assured time and again that all scientists agree they are perfectly safe for human consumption and pose no risk to the environment, with anybody who disagrees being branded a conspiracy theorist. It is not true however that "all scientists agree," just as it was never tue that "the science is settled" in respect of climate change. Not only is there a mountain of evidence that Genetically Modified Organism are a health risk, the main advantage claimed for them by scientists, that they give greatly increased crop yields, has been thrown into doubt (I'm being generous, it has been trashed).

We just can't trust official information and enough people are aware of the extent that spin, deception and downright lies are used to manipulate opinion now that those in power are getting worried that their plans for a totalitarian global government (needed to save the planet from threats the power elite have invented) may be impossible to implement. So wholesale fear and panic propagation having failed to browbeat us into surrendering our individualism by wholesale surveillance and scaremongering, they (yes, the mysterious THEM, come on pedants - you know who I mean) are now looking to use the extended powers of intrusive surveillance technologies about to become commercially avalable will offer to personalise surveillance and use targeted scaremongering techniques to pick at our individual vulnerabilities.

Resistance to this is simple but is also and individual thing, you must first understand that "The Wisom Of The Crowd" is just a creation of public relations officers, there is no wisdom in mindelessly following the mob. Ture wisdom lies in being brave enough to stand apart from the crowd, to use your own senses and jusdgement to decided what is right for you. I would not cousel you against choosing slavery and the illusion of security it offers, if that is what you want. All I would say is, "Think it through very carefully before making that choice."

Washington Is Humanity’s Worst Enemy

I still come across the occasional American nut job (as many of them are left wing as right wing) who tell me the USA is a beacon of democracy, justice and liberty. Evan as the Obama administration buts its push towards Stalinism into overdrive by advancing the descpicable United Nations Agenda 21 which will abolish private proptery amd make us all slaves to government. Obama famously promised his administration would be a "wellspring of human rights" but like all american politicians he learned his oratory from preachers and consequently is all mouth and trousers. The only people whose rights are protected in Obamaland are ethnic minorities, gays, lesians and paedophiles and of course the weathly elite. It is not american people who are the problem, they are a mix of good and bad as are people everywhere, on balance more good than bad and whether Democrat or Republican, Chistian or otherwise, basically decent, honest, hard working and wanting only to get on with their lives. It is the political and financial elite who are the problem. But American's are waking up to what is going on in their nation, now a beacon for authortarianism, fascism and police state justice: From Paul Craig Roberts:
‘How does Washington get away with the claim that the country it rules is a democracy and has freedom? This absurd claim ranks as one of the most unsubstantiated claims in history. There is no democracy whatsoever. Voting is a mask for rule by a few powerful interest groups. In two 21st century rulings (Citizens United and McCutcheon), the US Supreme Court has ruled that the purchase of the US government by private interest groups is merely the exercise of free speech. These rulings allow powerful corporate and financial interests to use their money-power to elect a government that serves their interests at the expense of the general welfare. The control private interests exercise over the government is so complete that private interests have immunity to prosecution for crimes. At his retirement party on March 27, Securities and Exchange Commission prosecutor James Kidney stated that his prosecutions of Goldman Sachs and other “banks too big to fail” were blocked by superiors who “were focused on getting high-paying jobs after their government service.” The SEC’s top brass, Kidney said, did not “believe in afflicting the comfortable and powerful.” In his report on Kidney’s retirement speech, Eric Zuesse points out that the Obama regime released false statistics in order to claim prosecutions that did not take place in order to convince a gullible public that Wall Street crooks were being punished ...

Gay Rights? As a liberal society we have a duty to tolderate, not celebrate

Even though the government has accepted a very limited definition of same sex marriage the gay lobby keeps raving on about the greates non issue of all time. But in a free society should we be subjected to bullying if we do not show enough enthusiasm for homosexual and lesbian relationships? When did indifference become a hate crime?
The Daily Stirrer has written many thousands of worlds on the hypocrisy of the political left, the progressives and liberals as they link to style themselves. Anyone familiar with the theory of Foucault's pendulum will understand that society swung way to the left in the first decade of the twenty first century, and a globalists and unsustainably expensive collectivist model was imposed on society.

Now the pendulum is swinging back with national sovereignty, traditional culture and individual freedom pushing the left's sacred cows, multicultiuralism human rights and immigration out of the limelight, left wing lobbying is becoming more shill and hysterical.

‘Britain not bound by European court of human rights’says top judge

Brian Leveson, a British judge best know to the public for his report on press ethics in the wake of a major phone hacking scandal, says UK courts need not automatically defer to European Court of Human Rights’ rulings.

Leveson says he is not “crushed by the European jackboot” when it comes to applying the European convention of human rights in British courts. However, he is obliged to take the Strasbourg court’s rulings “into consideration”. He said the convention was “devised in large part by British lawyers, reflecting British values, to ensure that the activities that we’d all heard about during the Second World War never repeated themselves”. Well we must suppose he knows what he meant.

In a somewhat more legalistic comment on European Human Rights law Leverson said, "When the convention became a part of UK law it allowed our citizens to cite the convention directly. That doesn’t mean we are bound [by its decisions] ... the legislation only requires us to take them into account,.

"So if it looks like a [British] statute could have one of two meanings, and one complies with the convention and one doesn’t, we are required by statute to follow the one that complies with our convention responsibilities."

Leveson insisted British judges would never depend on the Strasbourg courts due to the fact that UK courts have "matured" in recent years regarding their consideration of ECHR decisions.

The oath that every British judge takes requires that they try every case according to the laws and usage of the realm, which means we have to comply with the law as set out by the british parliament and interpreted by higher courts. Parliament requires judges to take account of European decisions.

But Thomas Buergenthal, a former judge at the international criminal court in The Hague said he responded with "sadness and surprise" to those urging Britain to leave the EU muddied the water by saying, "I think the UK doesn’t have to be in the convention because the legal system in Britain is bad. The presence is so important because Britain influences other judges from other countries and how the law operates."

Buergenthal seems to be confused about the points at issue here. The possibility of Britain's leaving the EU is related to political and economic issues. Our problems with the European Human Rights Court relate to incidences when the EU has tried to bully British courts and bureaucrats into overturning the laws enacted by the UK's sovereign government in order to comply with EU rulings.

An example was when the EU and EHRC tried to force Britain to change a law passed by parliament which affirmed the long standing convention that convicted criminals serving prison time are not allowed to vote. The Cultural Marxist who run european bureaucracies as usual took the view that criminals' rights override those of their victims.
