University free speech society told free speech a 'red risk', external speakers must be vetted
Sheffield University’s recently formed Free Speech Society has been warned that free speech is a “red risk” and all external speakers at events it organises will have to be vetted by the University Thought Police squad and the topics they intend to talk about shown to be in line with ideas and opinions the titty - sucking babies who run the Student Union are not frightened by.

THE EUROPEAN UNION is facing increasing scrutiny as Brexit inspires more euroscepticism in the bloc - and an insider from Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Union has said that many in Germany fear the EU could "break apart"
The startling statement was made by Felix Schonherr from the Werte Union (Values Union) – a group within Merkel’s party which has called for the party to shift to the right in favour of “conservative values”. The group’s spokesman said that, while it does not oppose Germany’s membership in the EU, Brexit has sparked fears in Berlin and beyond that the bloc may be on the verge of breaking apart.
He told Express.co.uk: “In the general population people are angry about Brexit and disappointed about it – it isn’t just to do with regulation or economics but many people fear that the idea of the European Union is broken ... Continue readingMORE ON EU PROBLEMS IN Europe Unglues

Integration? Gothenburg Mosque: A Muslim woman shall not leave the home without her man’s permission
Swedish TV4 revealed yesterday that the homepage of the Gothenburg mosque – a mosque built with Saudi Arabian money – links to an international guide for proper behavior if one wishes to convert to Islam.
The New Muslim guide says that a Muslim woman must have her husband’s permission to leave the home, regardless if it is for personal or for other reasons. Furthermore, the guide claims that it’s a sin if a Muslim woman ever denies him sex. The only exceptions to the rule are if the woman is sick or is menstruating.
Sarah Delshad, the founder of the organization Feminist Muslims, says that she’s saddened that such an ultra-orthodox conservative form of Islam attempts to speak for all the Muslims today. Sarah does not wear hijab and she is a “progressive” Muslim.
Another person who TV4 met who reacted negatively to Gothenburg mosque’s statement Magnus Ranstorp, a researcher on terrorism.
“It is remarkable that the mosque link to this New Muslim Guide, a guide which has these reprehensible views,” Ranstorp said.
TV4 called the spokesperson for the Gothenburg Mosque, Mohammed El Alti, to confront him about the views espoused on their homepage.Continue reading RELATED TOPICS Return to Contents List
Young Male Voters Back Swedish Populist Party, But Far Left Have Females
The populist Sweden Democrats (SD) are the most popular party with male voters aged 18 to 29 according to a new poll — but female voters are largely on the opposite side of the political spectrum.
The SD is the most popular party in the Novus poll, followed by the Centre-Right Moderate Party. Combined with the conservative Christian Democrats (KD) the three right-leaning parties make up over 60 per cent of the male vote, SVT reports.
The female vote, on the other hand, shows the most popular party in that age bracket is the far-left Left Party, followed by the Social Democrats and the Centre Party. The SD and the Moderates make up just 27 per cent of the total female vote.
Jenny Madestam, a political scientist at Södertörn University, commented on the results of the poll saying both sexes value such things as an investment in welfare — but greatly differ on issues like migration ... Continue readingRELATED TOPICS
Worst polluting coal and wood fires banned in fight to cut emissionsBy Emma Gatten, Environment Editor ; Anna Mikhailova, Deputy Political Editor and Amy Jones
Domestic coal and certain types of wood are to be banned from sale from next year in a bid to cut air pollution, ministers will announce on Friday.
The Environment Secretary said the move was necessary as wood-burning stoves and open fires were now considered "the most harmful pollutant" affecting people in this country.
The announcement comes just weeks after a ban on the sale of new diesel, petrol and hybrid cars from 2035 was announced. It is also expected that the 10-year freeze on fuel duty will end next year under plans that could be set out as soon as next month's budget.
The government is keen to be seen at the forefront of global efforts to tackle climate change and air pollution.
However, it risks accusations of targeting consumers as global action to reduce rising greenhouse gas emissions stalls and the government has given the green light for a new deep coal mine.Under the terms of the coal and wood ban unveiled on Friday, bags of traditional house coal will be banned from sale by next February, while deliveries will be phased out by 2023 ...

Macron Vows to Fight ‘Islamist Separatism’ with New Reforms
French President Emmanuel Macron has declared his government will fight against “Islamist separatism” with reforms including ending residency for foreign imams.
The French leader made his proposals at a speech in the city of Mulhouse this week saying that he wanted to see an end to “detached imams” sent by other countries like Algeria, Turkey, and elsewhere to French mosques.
Macron said that he encouraged a greater number of imams to be trained within France to replace the foreign imams, of which there are around 300 known to be operating in the country.
In total, France has around 1,800 imams and a much greater number of volunteers working at the estimated 2,500 places of Muslim worship across the country, France24 reports ... Continue readingRELATED POSTS

Criminal damage in Cambridge reveals the police soft peddaling on Extinction Rebellion crimesby Allison Pearson for The Daily Telegraph
Nobody is allowed to walk on the grass outside Trinity College Cambridge. I suppose an exception might be made if you were a 365-year-old don who once lolled under the famous apple tree with Sir Isaac Newton (probably a couple of those old fellows still holed up in the port cellar).
Otherwise, set one foot on that sacred turf and you will soon find yourself experiencing the full force of Newtonian gravity; rugby-tackled to the ground by a puce-faced porter in a bowler hat.
So there was general astonishment on Monday when a scrofulous mob of Extinction Rebellion (XR) protesters were allowed to dig up the lawn. After hideously defacing the emerald sward, they carried the earth in wheelbarrows to Barclays Bank, where they deposited it in the foyer.
Where were the porters? Where were the police? Why did no one intervene to stop this appalling act of vandalism?
Fear and collusion, that’s why. Increasingly, we see authorities of all kinds running scared of over-mighty minority groups. Tread softly for you tread on their screams. Universities cower before (or even agree with) strident students. Hounded by trans groups domestic-violence refuges admit “women” with a penis. The vast majority of the country thinks this is insane, but too many institutions have been captured by the woke zealots or are afraid.
The demands of XR Cambridge are particularly outrageous. Having occupied the council chamber last week and delayed the crucial city budget, they insisted that the council give its democratic powers over to an unelected Citizens’ Assembly ... Continue reading
Brexit was the UK's democratic reckoning. It's Varadkar and Merkel's turn nowby Asa Bennet, Daily Telegraph
10 Feb 2020
Brexiteers used to to argue the United Kingdom's referendum on its terms of membership of the European Union was a safety valve against populism that allowed disenchanted voters to release their frustrations by making themselves heard.
It may have taken more than three years for the political class to listen to what the people wanted, but the man who promised to do that has been handsomely rewarded. Even his critics can see that, as Philip Hammond admitted to one of my Telegraph colleagues the other week, that the Prime Minister now has "unassailable power" and is "the most powerful politician in Europe".
By contrast, his European counterparts are having a much tougher time. Angela Merkel, in the past lauded as "Queen of Europe", had hoped to hand over the throne to a protegee suitably modelled in her image, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer. But her successor has been forced to quit as party leader and pull out of the race to be the next Chancellor. [ ... ]
Chancellor Merkel is not the only European leader to feel the wrath of the people. The latest Irish election results show the cost of Leo Varadkar's belief that posturing over Brexit could make up for meaningful answers on housing and health. The Taoiseach could not distract from the failings of his agenda.
Mr Varadkar has been humiliated, becoming the first Irish prime minister not to be elected at the first count in his constituency, having to wait until the fifth count for the people of Dublin West to do so. Voters have also torn apart the hitherto two-party system of politics between his Fine Gael party and Fianna Fáil as their opposition, with Sinn Fein leapfrogging them both to win the greatest share of the vote.

Ireland Election in Third Day, IRA Successors Sinn Fein Win Biggest Share of Vote
Ireland´s political parties were scrambling to adjust to a new reality Monday after an earth-shaking election that saw the left-wing nationalist party Sinn Fein win the biggest share of votes.
Sinn Fein, the party historically linked to the Irish Republican Army and its violent struggle for a united Ireland, received 24.5% of the first-preference votes in Saturday´s election. That bested Fianna Fail and Fine Gael, the two centrist parties that have governed Ireland since it won independence from Britain a century ago.
Fianna Fail received 22.2% of the votes and Fine Gael, the party of incumbent Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, got 20.9%.
Sinn Fein´s left-wing proposals for tackling Ireland’s housing crisis and creaking healthcare system proved a powerful draw for young voters in a country that is still dealing with aftershocks of the 2008 global financial crisis, which hammered its debt-driven “Celtic Tiger” economy.
Vote counting was resuming Monday to fill all the seats in the 160-seat Dail, the lower house of Ireland´s parliament. Ireland uses a proportional-representation system in which voters rank candidates from first to last, with the lower preferences of elected or defeated candidates redistributed among their rivals.Continue reading RELATED TOPICS
EU contempt for Brexit: Italy MEP reveals von der Leyen’s shock reaction to Brexit speech
Antonio Maria Rinaldi has become a known face among Brexiteers and eurosceptics, after he issued a stunning speech in the EU Parliament in support of Brexit on January 31. Speaking in Brussels, Mr Rinaldi, who is one of the League’s 28 European parliamentarians, said: “We know that sovereignty to people is a great achievement. “The UK has embodied this principle.
In an interview with Express.co.uk a few days later, the eurosceptic revealed how Ursula von der Leyen, the President of the European Commission, reacted to his speech.He said: "I am proud I said 'God save the Queen And I would say it again shouting. Von der Leyen literally jumped out of her chair when I said it. But I don't care. “She is not going to achieve what she wants, let me tell you, and it will be an utter failure.

"What Were We Thinking?"
Authored by Charles Hugh Smith via OfTwoMinds blog,
Will we wonder, what were we thinking? and marvel anew at the madness of crowds?
When we look back on this moment from the vantage of history, what will we think? Will we think how obvious it was that the coronavirus deaths in China were in the tens of thousands rather than the hundreds claimed by authorities?
Will we think how obvious it was that the virus would spread around the globe, wreaking havoc on the global economy and social order, even as the authorities claimed only a handful of cases had arisen outside China?
Will we be amazed at the delusional confidence that the U.S. economy would be untouched by the virus as stock markets quickly soared to new all-time highs while the world's largest economy ground to a halt in a desperate attempt to close the barn door after the horses had already escaped?
Will we look back at the patently false data being promoted by authorities and wonder why the majority accepted it all as credible?
Will we re-examine all the smartphone videos posted on the web by average people and wonder why all the lies were given more credibility than actual videos?
Will we recall how content that didn't parrot the approved narrative that everything was under control and the global impact would be near-zero was suppressed, banned, de-platformed or marginalized? Will we wonder at the complacency of all those who accepted this orchestrated suppression with such obedient passivity?
Will we look back at the claim that only twelve people in the entire U.S. had the virus, despite all the direct flights from Wuhan and the tens of thousands of people who'd traveled from China to the U.S. in January, and marvel at our credulity?
Will we look back at the wreckage left in the wake of the coordinated campaign to suppress the facts and lay the responsibility for all the carnage on the authorities who devoted more energy to hiding the realities of the pandemic than to preparing us for the impact?
Will we ponder the incredible grip of mass delusion on the human mind when we recall the confidence that the U.S. economy was invulnerable to the virus and the implosion of China, and the blithe quasi-religious faith that central banks would never let global stock markets decline even 2%?

Cordless phones and radiation: How to protect yourself from harmful effects
We have all become very reliant on technology in our daily lives but few of us few are aware of the negative effects wireless communications devices can have. Cell phones, Wi-Fi routers, microwaves, computers and other electronic appliances emit a stream of radiation, correctly but confusingly called electromagnetic field (EMF) that can bring harm to human health. What magnets, the things we used to play with, the things we use to stick notes to the fridge door, harmful? Well they can be ...
EMFs are waves of invisible energy composed of both electric and magnetic fields perpendicular to each other. Since the beginning of time, the world has been bombarded with natural EMFs emitted by the sun. However, it was only until the dawn of technology that humans have been exposed to an unprecedented amount of man-made EMFs emitted by the things many people use in their everyday lives, like mobile phones.
There are currently two types of EMF exposure: low-level radiation and high-level radiation. Also known as non-ionizing radiation, low-level radiation is often thought to be harmless to humans. Various appliances like Bluetooth devices, computers and power lines all send out low levels of radiation. On the other hand, high-level radiation, also called ionizing radiation, includes the ultraviolet rays emitted by the sun and the X-rays from medical imaging machines. (Related: Harmful EMF radiation could be found right in your own neighborhood.)
There is much debate about whether or not EMFs are actually harmful to humans. According to a report published by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer, EMFs are “possibly carcinogenic to humans.”Continue reading RELATED TOPICS
Salvini’s plan to smash Italy’s red wall
Final polls for Sunday’s elections in Emilia-Romagna, had the candidate for regional president of the Left-wing Partito Democratico (PD) neck and neck with Lucia Borgonzon, representative of Matteo Salvini’s Right-wing Lega. If defeated in Emilia-Romagna, it is difficult to see how the PD dare muster the nerve to continue as junior partner in the national coalition government with the ever weaker alt-Left 5Stelle (5 Star), which continues to tear itself apart. On Wednesday, in a further sign of disarray, Luigi di Maio resigned as 5Stelle leader but remains Minister for Foreign Affairs.
When it came to power after the last general election in 2018 the anti-corruption movement 5Stelle, founded by comedian Beppe Grillo — a Genoan version of Billy Connolly — was Italy’s most popular party, polling at 32.7% (compared to then coalition partner the Lega’s 17.35%). But it has haemorrhaged support ever since and is now on just 15% compared to the Lega’s 33%.
Its coalition partner, the PD, is in equally dire straits even if it does hang on to Emilia-Romagna. It has also seen its suppport plummet and last September it split when former premier Matteo Renzi – Italy’s attempt at Tony Blair — refused to accept the coalition with 5Stelle and resigned to form a new party Italia Viva, which is now polling about 4%.Continue reading RELATED TOPICS
The grooming gang cover-up is Britain’s real racism scandal
Forget pathetic 'Princess Pushy' Megan Markle petulantly playing the race card when she found life in the goldfish bowl occupied by Britain's Royal Family was not to her liking, the grooming gang cover up is Britain's racist scandal - and it is far worse than the trivialities that get American libtards screaming about "White Privilege."
While Prince Harry was making a speech on Sunday night, other people who are not quite as privileged as Prince H or Princess Pushy were incensed by reports suggesting the Duke and Duchess were abdicating because Meghan had been the victim of racist media coverage. “I didn’t even know she was black until I saw her mum at the wedding,” raged one caller to a radio phone in.
He spoke for millions of Britons who welcomed the beautiful American actress into our Royal family with open arms and had no concerns about her suitability or her status as a 'person of colour.' Well, not until she started writing cringeworthy mottos on bananas destined for sex workers, anyway.
On BBC political debate show Question Time, when the actor Laurence Fox also dismissed the suggestion that Meghan had faced racism and said that, as countries go, the UK is really quite nice, inclusive and non-racist, there was uproar in the ‘woke’ echo chamber of social media. The rest of the country simply nodded and said: “Too right, mate.”
A QT audience member (naturally, she turned out to be an academic and regular BBC contributor) then accused Fox of “white privilege”. That charge is supposed to intimidate its target into silence. Refreshingly, Fox refused to be cowed. He pointed out that nervousness surrounding the issue of racism meant that “things like the Manchester grooming scandal get ignored”. Continue reading

The BBC is panicking at the public’s rejection of its arrogant Left-liberal worldviewJanet Daly, Telegraph
This is nearly over – this weird disconnect between what most of us understand as reality and the world as seen through the eyes of an all pervasive Authority that was apparently appointed (although we never knew by whom) to establish the limits of public discourse. The crisis of confidence at the BBC – and make no mistake, it is a full blown, all alarm bells ringing, catastrophic crisis – is probably the most visible sign of the shift but it is much bigger than this.
So bear with me: I promise that the whole column is not going to be about the BBC, even though it is easily the most infuriating and useful exemplar of the problem.
But no, what could be about to implode is not just the sublime, unlimited self-regard of the broadcasters. It is nothing less than the whole interlocking set of preconceptions that are so embedded in the consciousness of those who decide what it is acceptable to think that they must ignore or traduce anything that contradicts them.Continue reading RELATED TOPICS
Climate change narrative collapses as investigators determine up to 85% of Australia’s fires were started by people
These days, whenever there is a massive wildfire anywhere on the planet, Left-wing lunatics crawl out of the woodwork to claim that the ‘cause’ of such fires is due to “global warming” and “climate change” brought about by human activities.
Cattle farts, SUVs, and modern power plants are doing to the planet what meteors, massive volcanoes, and the Ice Age couldn’t do, we are told: Destroy Earth and kill billions of people.
The latest example comes from none other than Australia, where a series of wildfires has ravaged millions of acres. Only, the fires were not caused by modern technology; they were caused by modern humans ...Continue readingRELATED TOPICS
Scientists In Britain May Have Just “Accidentally” Found A Cure For Cancer
Every once in a while, medical researchers simply have a stroke of good luck. In this case, that “stroke of good luck” could have a profound effect on the medial community.
Researchers at Cardiff University that were in the midst of analyzing blood from a bank accidentally stumbled into an “entirely new type of T-cell”, according to The Daily Wire. The new cell carries a “never before seen” type of receptor that acts like a grappling hook, latching on to most human cancers.
Prior therapies, called CAR-T and TCR-T, which use immune cells to attach to HLA molecules on cancer cells’ surface, are incapable of fighting solid tumors, the article notes. HLA molecules vary in people, but the new therapy instead attaches to a molecule called MR1, which does not vary in humans. This gives the therapy a chance of fighting most cancers.It also means people could share the treatment, which could allow banks of cells to be stored and offered quickly, as needed. The treatment has already worked on lung, skin, blood, colon, breast, bone, prostate ... Continue reading RELATED TOPICS
Sweden’s Society May Be ‘Dissolving’ Due To Mass Migration says academic
Swedish political science professor Tommy Möller has warned that the unprecedented mass migration into Sweden in the last decade could unravel the country’s “democratic welfare society.”
Professor Möller, who teaches at Stockholm University, has claimed that political stability in Sweden has been greatly affected by mass migration, stating that it could be relegated to a museum in an op-ed published by Swedish newspaper Dagens Industri.
“No matter what happens, no one can deny that our society has undergone significant changes as a result of the extensive immigration, and these demographic changes will permeate Swedish politics for the foreseeable future,” Moller said and highlighted the rise of the anti-mass migration Sweden Democrats (SD) who have topped recent opinion polls.

Election UK: So did ‘idiot voters’ get it wrong?by Tom Chivers for Unherd
In the postmortem examination of Labour’s electoral disaster, the notion of “false consciousness” has been bandied around quite a lot. The accusation is that Labour, blaming the media and the Tories (and sometimes the voters themselves) for deceiving the population into voting against its own interests, is invoking the idea to explain why the workers and lower middle class — whom they think of as their base — didn’t vote for them. “Am I out of touch? No, it’s the voters who are wrong.”
“False consciousness” gets a lot of bad press these days, and you can see why: it’s a foundational concept of Marxist-Leninist communism, originally formulated by Friedrich Engels, and it can easily be seen as a way of blaming the idiot proles for not knowing what’s best for them and voting for the wrong lot. There is something a bit grim about telling working-class people — or black people, or gay people, or women, et cetera — that the only reason they voted the way they did is because they are idiots who got duped.

censorship UN Moves Towards Handing Dictatorships Power to Control the Internet
The United Nations wants to hand power to dictatorial regimes like China to control the Internet, prompting fears of a massive new free speech purge.
The General Assembly has approved a resolution sponsored by China and Russia to set up a committee of “international experts” whose role would be to stop “the use of information and communications technologies for criminal purposes.”
However, many caution that the move is merely a back door for authoritarian regimes to further censor dissent.
“The United States, European powers and rights groups fear that the language is code for legitimizing crackdowns on expression, with numerous countries defining criticism of the government as “criminal,” reports AFP.
Human Rights Watch said the list of sponsors for the resolution is “a rogue’s gallery of some of the earth’s most repressive governments” and “gives countries legal cover for internet blackouts and censorship, while creating the potential for criminalizing free speech.”

Recycling rubbish: Plastic bottles in the bin and rats in the machinery
from The Daily Telegraph
Standing in a sweltering factory, the men and women wiped sweat from their foreheads as they leant towards the conveyor belt to pull off waste. It was only May, but the smell from the bags of rubbish was strong as the food inside started to rot in the warmth.
Black bin liners, nappies, food – all items which could contaminate a batch of otherwise recyclable waste – needed to be separated from the recycling and put in the bins marked “general waste”.
Tasked with removing 35 pieces of rubbish a minute from the line, it was sometimes hard for staff to keep up, and it appeared several workers may have felt pressured to “grab” any items – including plastic bottles, cardboard and unopened sacks containing recycling – and discard them in the bins.
When the undercover reporter asked what happened to the items put in the bins, they were told: “If it goes to the bin? Well then it goes to the incinerator” ... READ FULL STORY on the Recycling hoax >>>

China stealing Middle East from under America’s nose
China, the world’s second-largest economy, appears to be in the process of carving out a new Middle East plan that will over time erode and chip away at American dominance in the region.
Granted, Washington’s influence in the Middle East has been steadily disappearing for some time. It became clear this was the case after the US toppled an anti-Iranian dictator, Saddam Hussein, in Iraq and replaced his government with a pro-Tehran Shia-dominated leadership. However, things really took a turn for the worse some years later in Syria, which saw Russia emerge as a major power whose physical presence could not only prevent a pending US invasion, but could potentially broker lasting peace deals.
It should be no surprise then to see China also willingly filling the void left by a slowly but surely deteriorating superpower. The Middle East Security Forum held in Beijing at the end of November brought together over 200 representatives from both the Middle East and China to discuss Beijing’s “new idea” for the Middle East.

The United Nations may resort to military action against states that defy its mandates on global climate action, according to Ole Wæver, a prominent international relations professor at the University of Copenhagen.
In an interview with ABC News in Australia, Professor Wæver cautions that what he sees as “climate inaction” might draw the U.N. into considering other means to ensure its goals are met, even if that leads to global armed conflict.
Professor Wæver says more resistance to change could potentially threaten democracy although the U.N. would counter that the end justified the means in much the same way countries like Greece had their debt crisis solutions forced on them by European Union bureaucrats in Brussels and Strasbourg.
“The United Nations Security Council could, in principle, tomorrow decide that climate change is a threat to international peace and security,” he says.
“And then it’s within their competencies to decide ‘and you are doing this, you are doing this, you are doing this, this is how we deal with it’.”
He believes classifying climate change as a security issue could leave the door open to more extreme policy responses.

On September 26, 2018, just before Campos got on her pre-booked flight to Houston, a gate agent handed her a new boarding pass, saying, “This is your new seat.”
Campos said, “Excuse me?”.
The agent said, “I don’t know how to tell you this. The two gentlemen seated next to you have cultural beliefs that prevent them from sitting next to, or talking to or communicating with females.” ... READ ALL >>>MORE on Islam and inequality

Scientists Counter Claims That ‘Meat Is Evil’
by Thomas D Williams, Breitbat Europe
A team of UK scholars have fired back at unscientific claims by PETA and other groups that veganism is a “greener” option that eating meat, insisting that meat has “massive social benefits.”
Speaking at a panel in central London, scientists from the University of Edinburgh and Scotland’s Rural College argued that eating meat is crucial for the physical and mental health of children, especially in developing countries, adding that that alternatives to livestock farming would not improve land use.
“We feel that while livestock production has a range of economic, social and environmental costs and benefits, the costs have perhaps been receiving far more attention recently than some of the benefits,” said Professor Geoff Simm, Director of Global Academy Agriculture and Food Security at the University of Edinburgh.
“Meat has massive social benefits,” Simm said. “It’s an important source of dietary protein, energy, highly bioavailable micronutrients, even small amounts of animal-sourced food have a really important effect on the development of children, in the developing world on their cognitive and physical development and they are really important.”
Simm also said that claims that veganism would benefit land use are not based on serious research, the Telegraph reported ... READ ALL >>>MORE on food fasists Scientists Caught Out In Another Fraud, Red Meat Does Not Cause Cancer

“The accused, identifying himself by name, posted on his Facebook account messages ‘in which he promoted the animosity, rejection, exclusion, aggression and confrontation against Muslim people, as well as against people of foreign origin, black and gypsy ethnicity.'”
This story fastidiously avoids giving any examples, so we can’t evaluate what was actually said. Since all too often honest analysis of the motivating ideology behind jihad terror is falsely characterized as promoting “animosity, rejection, exclusion, aggression and confrontation against Muslim people,” this could be essentially an imposition of Sharia in Spain. Once a group is beyond criticism, that group is a protected class in society, with a free hand to do what it wishes, however unjust. This kind of ruling is leading to Muslims becoming that protected class in Spain ... READ ALL at Jihad Watch >>>MORE on Islam

According to the County Administrative Board’s new citizen survey, more than half of women feel insecure in the evenings while the overall figure who feel unsafe rose from 33 per cent to 44 per cent.
Since 2011, the proportion of citizens who feel unsafe in their own residential area during the daytime almost doubled from 11 per cent to 20 per cent.
“The growing insecurity in Stockholm is also underscored by the fact that more and more county residents are refraining from activities due to concern about being exposed to crime, such as walking, cinema or visiting acquaintances,” the report stated.

UK Cancer Charity: Biological Females Are Now "People With A Cervix"
Are you ready for this week’s absurdity? Here’s our Friday roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, your finances, and your prosperity. Apparently it’s not just women who can have babies…
It all started when a British cancer charity decided to drop the word “women” from their pap smear ad campaign.
It seems that suggesting “women” should get pap smears to test for cervical cancer is discriminatory and not inclusive enough… so the charity instead started advertising to “everyone aged 25-64 with a cervix”.
Lynsey McCarthy Calvert, a professional birth coach and spokeswoman for a nation association of birth coaches in Great Britain, responded with a Facebook post.
She wrote that she was not a “cervix owner,” but rather an “adult human female,” and that “women birth all the people [in the world].”
She was then immediately accused of transphobia by the woke patrol on Facebook, who took offense as Lynsey’s “absolutely disgusting language.”
Apparently it’s “disgusting” to acknowledge your own biological facts. READ FULL STORY >>>MORE ON TRANSGENDER
EU should fear the jihadists it’s backing in Syria, not refugees – Assadfrom RT
In an exclusive interview with RT’s Afshin Rattansi, Syrian President Bashar Assad said it’s hypocrisy for European nations to fear that Ankara will send refugees to Europe, but continue to sponsor terrorism in Syria.
The Syrian leader argued that the primary concern for Europe should not be the Syrian refugees which Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan now threatens to release to Europe, but the “hundreds of thousands” of jihadists Europe allied itself with.
How can you fear those few millions, the majority of them are moderates and they have few terrorists, while you support those terrorists directly in tens of thousands at least and maybe hundreds of thousands in Syria and you don’t fear that they’re going to go back to your country?
Assad told Afshin Rattansi that while there might be some extremists among those who fled the war-torn country, the majority of the refugees do not pose any acute threat, as opposed to hardened jihadists who may turn on their patrons ...MORE ON SYRIA Contents - this page
First a note from one of our Daily Stirrer contributors: We have been absent from the web for most of October because on the 8th of the month Teresa, the wife of our site owner, editor and webmaster Ian Thorpe, died suddenly when after a long illness she seemed to be improving steadily. As Ian's expertise in attracting traffic to the site and skill as a writer and editor (a role he does not relish,) are vital, we decided to suspend our efforts untik such time as he decided if he wanted to continue.
It has been a few tough years for Ian, who as a disabled person himself was ill equipped to be thrust into the role of carer for his wife, some regular visitors may have noticed the site has been falling apart for a while. It will take a while to get back on track, but we have decided we will carry on, recent events have shown more than ever that publications in any medium that challenge the establishment narrative are desperately needed.
E//v ?Bubble Burst? Tesla's US Sales Crashed An Astonishing 39% In Q3
The release of Tesla's 10-Q this morning has revealed some very unflattering truths behind last week's "stunning"(ly massaged) Q3 earnings report, which prompted a massive short squeeze and a nearly 30% jump in the company's stock since last Thursday.
The company's surprise "profit" disclosed last Wednesday shocked investors and left skeptics of the company befuddled as to how to explain the jarring swing back to "profitability".
Many skeptics suspected that the 10-Q would shine light on variables like warranty reserves, capex and A/P being juked to produce an impressive, yet unsustainable, earnings print.
And while most suspicions were proven accurate with the release of today's 10-Q, there was one truly staggering indicator that far from soaring, Tesla stock - when stripped of all the accounting magic and potential fraud - should be plunging.
Behind all of the fancy financial engineering, Tesla's U.S. sales fell off a cliff to $3.13 billion in the third quarter from $5.13 billion a year earlier. This marks an astonishing 39% drop that would have resulted in the immediate termination of any other auto CEO.READ full story at Zero Hedge

B***h, please! Banning ‘sexist’ language won’t make sexism disappear, any more than banning racial slurs killed racism
A Massachusetts congressman wants to end sexism by punishing sexist language - specifically the word “b***h” – with fines and even jail. But policing speech doesn't kill the underlying sentiment – that requires real social change.
Massachusetts Democrat Daniel Hunt's bill to ban the “b-word,” fining offenders $150 on the first offense and $200 or six months in prison if they can't stop saying it, sounds like the kind of joke conservatives might make to poke fun at the uber-liberal Bay State. But the bill – titled ‘An act regarding the use of offensive words’ – is real. Worse, any witness to the use of the word can complain.

Yet again, arrogant Remainers have completely misjudged the mood of the nation
What is it about Leavers that makes us so easy to write off? Is it that we don’t shout and scream, but calmly register our views at the ballot box? Is it because a lot of us live away from London, out of view of Westminster shenanigans? Or perhaps it’s because we tend not to occupy positions of power and influence?
Whatever the reason, for as long as I can recall, we have been underestimated, and dismissed as a mere nuisance to be swatted aside.
Twenty years ago, Eurosceptics argued against Britain joining the Euro. We were right, of course. We saw disaster ahead. But the great and the good, the experts, laughed in our faces, scoffing at our stupidity. Prevailing opinion at the Financial Times was fairly typical. Philip Stephens, chief political columnist, oozed condescendingly about our fears: “Immaturity is the kind explanation” ... READ ALL >>>RELATED POSTS: Brexit-Europe

What We've Lost To Globalism
A documentary on the decline of small farms and the rural economy in France highlights what we've lost in the decades-long rush to globalize and financialize everything on the planet-- what we call Neoliberalism, the ideology of turning everything into a global market controlled by The Tyranny of Price and cheap credit issued to corporations and banks by central banks.
After Winter, Spring (2012) was made by an American who moved to a small village in the Dordogne region of France to recover something of her childhood on a small Pennsylvania farm.
The farmers--self-described as paysans, peasants in English, (a translation I don't consider entirely accurate, for reasons too complex to go into here)-- describe the financial difficulties of earning enough to survive without outside jobs.
One young farmer who is taking over the family dairy from his aging parents encapsulates the economic reality of small farms: in the 1960s, they had 3 or 4 cows, now they have 100, but their income is the same.
Corporate mega-farms can produce huge quantities of agricultural products of questionable quality because they have the scale, access to cheap credit and expertise to deal with the voluminous bureaucratic paperwork imposed by the EU and the French government.

The Coup Has Begun – The Empire Strikes Back Everywhereby Tom Lun>go There are no coincidences in politics. Everything happens on a particular schedule. So when I see a day as crazy as today I have to ask the question, “Why this, why now?” Look at the headlines and you’ll see what I’m talking about. All of these things happened since I woke up at 7:30am Monday morning in Florida: The British Supreme Court just arrogated unprecedented power to itself by inserting itself into any dispute between the Government and Parliament. This upends more than 300 years of constitutional process. The Democrats have announced they will pursue impeachment charges against President Trump because an unverified, hearsay whistleblower made a complaint about a phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenski. Impeachment odds soared overnight as someone was tipped off about the Democrats’ plan. [...] This feels to me like a multi-level coup against those that dare stand athwart the global power structure. Both British and American leadership institutions are under sincere attack with these moves. The not-so-subtle message is, “We own you. We are in control and always will be.” Your champions will be harassed until they are completely neutered and bereft of any ability to implement the changes you want.

Technology was supposed to make us more capable. Instead it has made us scarily dependent
The promise of technology, we were once told, is to liberate us to achieve our true potential. But it’s becoming clear that our current technological direction is only making us hopelessly dependent on technology.
For much of post-industrial-revolution human history, technology has been synonymous with progress, held up as the key toward liberating humanity from life’s daily drudgery. Technology has promised to make things easier and elevate the species. But much technology emerging today has only increased our dependence on technology by rendering obsolete many of the skills we once relied upon.Contents - this page
Tesla, Musk Omitted Key Aspects Of SolarCity Acquisition From Ernst & Young, Shareholder Lawsuit Claims
Newly unsealed court documents published by PlainSite on Monday reveal that shareholders are accusing Tesla of improperly valuing its acquisition of SolarCity, providing "flawed analysis and misleading investors", according to CNBC. They also allege that Tesla withheld key information about its acquisition of SolarCity from Ernst & Young.
The lawsuit was filed in 2016 and is one of the more notable legal actions proceeding against Tesla and Elon Musk, who also face lawsuits regarding solar panel fires and Autopilot deaths - in addition to the ongoing defamation lawsuit by Vern Unsworth.
Tesla commented that the allegations lodged against it are: "...based on the claims of plaintiff’s lawyers looking for a payday, and are not representative of our shareholders who support our mission and ultimately voted in favor of the acquisition."
The company continued, stating: “The accusations made in the plaintiff’s brief are false and misleading, as Tesla and SolarCity published all material information in its proxy and other public filings for all shareholders to consider before deciding on the transaction.READ FULL ARTICLE at Zero Hedge Contents - this page
European Carmakers Face Perfect Storm
Picture: Zero HedgeAuthored by Irina Slav via OilPrice.com,
European carmakers are facing what could turn out to be a major crisis cooked up by EU regulators, and it’s all about EVs and emissions. The former are supposed to help solve the problem with the latter, but the likelihood of success is uncertain because there are literally millions of variables: car buyers.
The EU has been enforcing emission caps on cars since 2012. Until this year, this cap has been an average of 130 grams of CO2 per kilometer for all new passenger cars. Beginning next year, however, this would be reduced further to 95 grams of CO per km. In fuel consumption, the 130 g/km cap corresponds to an average 5.6 liters of gasoline per 100 km while the 95 g/km cap corresponds to 4.1 liters per 100 km.
Europe’s big carmakers are lining up the EVs. Volkswagen alone is planning four new EV models for 2020, after earlier this month it unveiled its first mass production affordable EV, the ID3. More models should be coming from the top carmaker in the next few years and its rivals will not be sitting idly by. Everyone who makes cars in Europe has an electric lineup… but there are no guarantees that people will want to buy those cars.READ MORE >>>
