Bill Black: Facebook’s Libra Currency Monetizes Identity and Threatens Privacy

Bill Black discusses Facebook’s newly-proposed crypto-currency, called “Libra.”

Facebook could use this technology to standardize identity and create a world of ultimate surveillance, and then profit from it, says Black…

BILL BLACK Okay, but the reason there’s what you refer to as confusion is because there’s confusion inherent in this design, and here’s what I mean by that. Libra can be changed at any time to do virtually anything by a two-thirds vote of an “association.” This association is made up of the usual for-profit actors in the world— the big credit card companies, etc. And more private for-profit entities can buy-in. So they can make Libra into most anything that is conceivable to make, and any promises that it won’t be used in certain ways are completely hollow because Facebook is not going to run Libra like we would trust. If Facebook did run Libra, but— [laughs] Even if Facebook gave us promises, which it’s done in the past and lied about, and somehow we believed that this would never occur again, and Facebook had turned over a new leaf—Facebook doesn’t control it! A bunch of other really nasty heads of these control it.

MARC STEINER Like who? Like what? What do you mean by that? Like what?

BILL BLACK Like the credit card companies and such own it and whoever wants to. Whoever finds that it would be sensible to take over this organization can take it over, get a two-thirds vote, and then Libra, they can make into almost anything.

CBO Destroys Democrat Dreams of Utopia; Almost 4 Million Jobs Lost Under $15 Minimum Wage

Hiking Americans’ minimum wage to $15 per hour would give millions of Americans a raise but would kick a smaller share of people out of work (presumably never to return as their skills are now priced out of the market) according to a new report from the Congressional Budget Office.

Effects of the $15 Option on Employment and Income.

According to CBO’s median estimate, under the $15 option, 1.3 million workers who would otherwise be employed would be jobless in an average week in 2025. (That would equal a 0.8 percent reduction in the number of employed workers.) CBO estimates that there is about a two-thirds chance that the change in employment would lie between about zero and a reduction of 3.7 million workers.

Big Pharma Hikes Drug Price 879% and That’s Just One of 3,400 So Far This Year

Big Pharma continues to jack up the prices on the drugs they peddle. The price of one drug was hiked 879%, and that’ only ONE of the 3,400 price increases that have occurred so far this year.

Pharmaceutical companies raised the prices of more than 3,400 drugs in the first half of 2019, surpassing the number of drug hikes they imposed during the same period last year, according to an analysis first reported by NBC News. While the average price increase per drug was 10.5%, a rate around five times that of inflation, about 40 of the drugs saw triple-digit increases. That includes a generic version of the antidepressant Prozac, which saw a price increase of 879%.

Bill Clinton Releases Statement on Epstein… and it’s Less Than Convincing

Former President Bill Clinton has suddenly weighed in on the recent arrest of his personal friend Jefferey Epstein.

On Monday, Clinton pulled a “New phone. Who dis?” on Epstein by releasing a less-than-enthusiastic press statement.

In it, Clinton denies he had any prior knowledge of Epstein’s crimes and says he hasn’t even seen the disgraced billionaire in a decade.

Box Office Bust: Revenue Down Nearly 10% Midyear

Domestic box office revenue through June 30 plunged 9.4% YoY, while ticket sales for 1H19 dropped 7.3% following “franchise fatigue infecting titles such as Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Men in Black: International and The Secret Life of Pets 2,” reported The Hollywood Reporter.

“I’m not giving up yet, and am trying to stay optimistic. But I thought we would catch up a lot quicker. For every two steps forward, we are going three steps back,” said box office expert Paul Dergarabedian of Comscore.

Even international box offices that Hollywood uses to distribute films have slumped. As of June, movies released on more than 1,000 screens in North America have earned about $13.4 billion worldwide, a 5% decline YoY.

Colorado State University Professor Wants to “Punch” Political Adversaries “In the Neck”

A Colorado State University professor says she is done “going high” and is now ready to “punch” her political adversaries “in the neck”.

Professor OiYan Poon was responding to a tweet that stated, “when they go low, you ing punch them in the neck”.

“I’m almost done reading Michelle Obama’s Becoming, and in reading the subtext, I don’t think she even believes the whole “when they go low, we go high” b.s.,” tweeted Poon.

“Also, this tweet is a mood! I’m done “going high”. #ImReady to “punch them in the neck,” she added.

The phrase “when they go low, we go high,” was used by Michelle Obama in 2016 to encourage taking the high road against low blow tactics and dirty tricks by Republicans.

“Poon teaches higher education leadership at Colorado State and also serves as director of the school’s Race and Intersectional Studies for Education Equity (RISE) Center,” reports Campus Reform.

Poon previously complained that “there was not enough racial diversity in gifs”. She also praised her friend, activist Tanzila Ahmed, who was banned from the Tinder dating app for saying she would not date white men in her bio.

Following Campus Reform’s story on her comments, Poon placed her Twitter account on lockdown.

Update4: In a second Monday hearing, Epstein’s attorneys have argued that he has immunity under a 2008 plea deal. As we noted earlier, however, the new case includes additional alleged victims who weren’t covered by Epstein’s non-prosecution agreement, according to Bloomberg.

His attorneys have also argued that the images seized in a raid of his Manhattan mansion are “ancient” and show consenting adults.

Prosecutors, on the other hand, say that the images are “extremely concerning.”

Epstein’s bail hearing has been rescheduled to July 15.

Jeffrey Epstein Indictment Unsealed — Accused of Sexual Exploitation of Dozens of Young Girls, Some as Young as 14

Prosecutors unsealed an indictment against billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein on Monday. The court accuses Epstein sexually abusing dozens of young girls for years at one of the biggest mansions in Manhattan, paying them hundreds of dollars in cash for each encounter and hundreds more if they could recruit other victims.

As Zero Hedge noted, this is separate from last week’s order by the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals that documents in a defamation lawsuit against Epstein be made public, which may contain the names of high-level individuals.

Bloomberg reported:

A two-count indictment describing sex acts with girls as young as 14 was unsealed early Monday in federal court in Manhattan just hours after federal agents used a crowbar to enter Epstein’s townhouse. The charges of sex trafficking and conspiracy carry a minimum of 10 years in prison if he’s convicted. He is expected to make an appearance later on Monday and seek to be released on bail.

Mike Cernovich posted the indictment.

Jeffrey Epstein Will Spend a Week in Jail Before His Bail Hearing After Claiming Underage Girls Were ‘Prostitutes’ — as FBI Reveals Trove of Nude Images of Minors and a Massage Table With Sex Toys Found at His $77m Mansion

Jeffrey Epstein has entered a not guilty plea to two charges of sex trafficking in federal court that could put him behind bars for 45 years.

The disgraced billionaire, 66, appeared in federal court for the first time on Monday, where he entered in a dark blue jumpsuit and took his seat next to his defense attorney for the first of two hearings in his case.

His arrival came hours after prosecutors unveiled what they had uncovered from Epstein’s house after they raided his mansion on Saturday night, turning up thousands of graphic photos which included images of underage girls.

Agents also found Epstein’s massage room set up just as victims described it from 15 years ago, with a table and assortment of sex toys.

Federal prosecutors are expected to unseal the new charges on Monday accusing Mr. Epstein, 66, of running a sex-trafficking operation that lured dozens of underage girls, some as young as 14, to his Upper East Side home, according to three law enforcement officials.

Judicial Watch Uncovers Clinton Attorney Samuelson Interview With FBI — Indicates Hillary’s Emails Were Altered and Other Crimes

Hillary Clinton likely attempted to alter her emails in an effort to cover up illegal activities rather than just deleting emails as was previously reported. Judicial Watch’s efforts to obtain her attorney’s interview with the FBI show this and other criminal actions! Judicial Watch again has performed a service to the country. In its efforts to get to the truth, Judicial Watch may have uncovered another shocking revelation in the Hillary Clinton email saga.

In June of 2019 Judicial Watch posted the interview notes it received from the government between the FBI and Hillary Clinton’s attorney Heather Samuelson. Hidden in the deposition are bits of information that when compared to information made public to date in the Hillary email case make no sense at all.

In the interview Samuelson states to the FBI’s Peter Strzok that she was assigned the duty of reviewing Hillary’s emails and in doing so, Samuelson reviewed the emails on her laptop both at her apartment and in Cheryl Mills’ office.

As is the case with the entire Hillary email coverup, the Clintons and her team were above the law. Others have been thrown in jail for similar actions. (For example, one NSA employee who brought hacking tools home was sentenced to 66 months in prison.)

President Trump Was the ‘Only One’ Who Helped Prosecutor in Epstein Case

The media is trying their best to connect President Trump to Jeffrey Epstein.

All over social media, the comments are accusing Trump of being involved with Epstein’s ‘Lolita Express’ and sex trafficking of minors. The left has hijacked the narrative to point the finger at Trump when it really should be towards Bill Clinton.

Clinton took over two dozen flights on Epstein’s ‘Lolita Express’ and even ditched Secret Service during the flights.

President Trump traveled in the same high society circles in New York City and has been pictured with Epstein at social functions. That means absolutely nothing but the left is using a photo of Trump with Epstein as evidence that Trump is guilty like Epstein.

Here’s what they don’t know:

  • According to Radaronline, Trump reportedly kicked Epstein out of Mar-a-Lago for hitting on a minor.
  • Trump was the ‘only one’ who helped prosecutors in the prior Epstein case:

Florida attorney Bradley Edwards, who represented one of Epstein’s accusers, claimed that Trump was the ‘only person’ who provided assistance to Edwards:

Texas 20-Year-Old Planned to Join ISIS, Gave Bomb-Building Tips, Officials Say

A 20-year-old Houston man arrested in 2017 for attempting to join the Islamic State pleaded guilty in federal court to “attempting to provide material support” to the terror group, U.S. attorneys said in a news release.

Kaan Sercan Damlarkaya was 18-years-old when he first attempted to join ISIS, the Houston Chronicle reported.

In early 2017, Damlarkaya began online communication with individuals he believed to be ISIS supporters, during which he expressed his desire to travel oversees to join the terrorist organization, U.S. attorneys said. Were that not possible, he vowed to carry out an attack on non-Muslim Americans, saying it was his “dream to be a martyr.”

The Future of America Looks Downright Sinister if the Democrats Have Their Way — Democrats Are Using a Well Practiced Plan to Take Down America

By Stefan Stanford

In this important July 1st story over at the American Thinker titled “Where The Democrats Are Trying To Take Us” they open their story reporting that after watching the first two Democratic party presidential debates a week ago, “it became crystal clear that there are embedded in this nation’s body politic prospective oligarchs who are overwhelming threats to the future of the nation. The Democratic Party and its puppet masters are unquestionably a clear and present danger to the United States”.

Confirming then what we all know, that the primary threat to America isn’t President Donald Trump nor his ‘deplorable’ supporters but an evolving autocratic oligarchy made up of the hierarchy of American Left, which includes elements of the political class, the mainstream media, the education establishment and, most recently, the titans of Silicon Valley, as the American Thinker story then pointed out, these very real ‘enemies of America within’ are using the very same tactics to take America down that were used by Adolf Hitler and most other oligarchs and wanna-be tyrants over the past 90 years.

And while at this point the Democrats and their agenda have been partially castrated with President Donald Trump in office and their ‘global agenda’ for America slowed down just slightly by POTUS’s first 2 1/2 years in office, we’ll take a look within this ANP story at where we’re likely heading should Democrats steal the 2020 election considering everything else that we now know, especially with CNN’s Carl Bernstein now actually reporting on air that President Trump is on the verge of igniting ‘civil war’ in America.

The Hoover Institution, Islam, And the Treason of the Intellectuals

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and H.R. McMaster participated in a Hoover Institution panel discussion live-streamed June 4, 2019, whose ostensible purpose was to characterize, “the identities of freedom’s adversaries, their goals and strategies, and what can be done to defeat these threats across government, the private sector, academia, and civil society.”

The just over 8-minute embedded video clip, and accompanying transcript below it, capture critical exchanges during the question and answer period. Watch/read how two audience queries, one on Islam, and the other on designating the traditionalist Islamic Muslim Brotherhood as a jihad terror organization, are “handled” by moderator Niall Ferguson, his wife Ayaan, and McMaster. Particularly alarming was the treatment afforded a very sympathetic Afghan Muslim woman exile whose poignant, and accurate observations about Islam are dismissed with a toxic brew of derisive laughter, and crude apologetics. These interactions are a sad testament to what passes for “informed, courageous center-right policymaking center discourse” on the liberty-crushing totalitarianism of Islam.

The expatriate Afghan Muslim woman questioner, was reverential of Ayaan Hirsi Ali, but did not abide being “silenced” by Stanford Professors when telling the truth about Islam’s violent imperialism. It was shocking that Ayaan tacitly agreed with such silencing, telling her interlocutor—and by extension, all of us— to “stop talking about Islam.” Exceeding this moral turpitude, H.R. McMaster opposed designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization, in response to another query, for “mere” advocacy of Sharia totalitarianism, without overt calls to violence. McMaster justified such a policy—acceptance of Sharia—because of what he deemed the lack of any “solution to the problem of Islamist groups that want to restrict human freedom.” Worse still, McMaster claimed more broadly—and counterfactually—“a way to think about this is to really make sure we understand that [jihad] terrorists are a perverted interpretation of Islam to justify their criminal acts.” He concluded by insisting, “What this [global jihad] is is a fight between all civilized people of all religions against those who have perverted Islam.”…

The Large Earthquakes That We Just Witnessed Should be Taken as a Warning by Everyone Still Living in California

A day of reckoning for the state of California is approaching very rapidly, and you don’t want to be there when that day finally arrives

For years, scientists have been warning us that the San Andreas fault is “locked and loaded” and could potentially “unzip all at once”.

Of course the two large earthquakes that we just witnessed in southern California were not along the San Andreas fault, and we should be extremely thankful for that. Because they happened in remote areas, those two quakes didn’t cause an enormous amount of damage, but they should still be taken as a warning. The magnitude 7.1 earthquake that rattled southern California on Friday night was felt in San Francisco, Las Vegas and northern Mexico simultaneously, but if a magnitude 9.0 earthquake suddenly hit the San Andreas fault it would be 707 times more powerful than the quake that we just witnessed, and it would happen in a very heavily populated area. Needless to say, the death and destruction would be unimaginable, and scientists keep telling us that southern California is way overdue for “the Big One” to strike.

So if you live in California right now, you have a decision to make.

Right now the crust of our planet is becoming exceedingly unstable, and the infamous Ring of Fire runs directly along the west coast of the United States.

Trump Predicted in 2015 That Epstein Connection Would Cause Trouble for Clintons

With the arrest of alleged sex trafficker and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein this past weekend, many are again looking into the billionaire’s shady ties with the Clintons, a fact that President Trump flagged up four years ago and predicted would come back to bite them.

Appearing at CPAC in 2015, Trump suggested that Bill Clinton had “got a lot of problems coming up, in my opinion, with the famous island with Jeffrey Epstein.”

The ‘famous island’ Trump is referring to is otherwise known as “Orgy Island,” a 72-acre plot in the U.S. Virgin Islands, where a lot of the illicit sexual activities that the billionaire pervert organized occurred.

Trump Says White House Will ‘No Longer Deal With’ British Ambassador Who Called Him ‘Inept’ And Attacks Country’s Outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May for Brexit Mess — Then Speaks of Admiration for Queen Elizabeth

Donald Trump said Tuesday that he will retaliate against the United Kingdom’s ambassador in Washington by freezing him out of American diplomacy, as punishment for harsh language about him in secret cables leaked to The Mail on Sunday.

The president’s quasi-declaration of statecraft war came in a pair of tweets that tore into Britain’s outgoing prime minister Theresa May for her handling of Brexit, and suggested that a new leader in London could replace the ambassador, Sir Kim Darroch.

‘I have been very critical about the way the U.K. and Prime Minister Theresa May handled Brexit. What a mess she and her representatives have created. I told her how it should be done, but she decided to go another way,’ Trump tweeted.

‘I do not know the Ambassador, but he is not liked or well thought of within the U.S. We will no longer deal with him,’ he added. ‘The good news for the wonderful United Kingdom is that they will soon have a new Prime Minister. While I thoroughly enjoyed the magnificent State Visit last month, it was the Queen who I was most impressed with!’

[…]

A Conservative Party member in the UK who has been supportive of the Brexit movement said Tuedsay that ‘Theresa May has made an absolute mess of Brexit. There is no two ways about that.’

‘But everybody knows as well that the ambassador will be following her out the door because people are already talking about who will replace him.’

Trump, the MP said, ‘has got it spot on. It’s a pity we didn’t have him doing the negotiations for us with Brussels.’

[Comment: Farage is right, the ambassador is a globalist tool — unfortunately the UK Foreign Office is full of similar people.]

Trump Attacks British Ambassador, Takes Swipe at UK PM May

WASHINGTON (Reuters) — U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday he “will no longer deal” with the British ambassador to the United States, after a weekend news report that the UK diplomat had described Trump’s administration as dysfunctional, clumsy and inept.

“I do not know the Ambassador, but he is not liked or well thought of within the U.S. We will no longer deal with him,” Trump said in a Twitter post that also criticized outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May.

Trump Was ‘Only One’ To Help Prosecutor in 2009 Epstein Case

With the Saturday arrest of billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein on charges of sex-trafficking minors — days after a judge ordered that nearly 2,000 documents be made public following a 2017 court motion originally brought by filmmaker and author Mike Cernovich, the internet is once again abuzz with speculation over who exactly might be implicated by the new evidence.

Epstein pleaded guilty to one count of soliciting prostitution from a 14 year old girl in 2008 for which he served 13 months in jail in a sweetheart deal with the DOJ brokered by current Labor Secretary Alex Acosta. The sealed records appeal, meanwhile, stemmed from a separate 2015 defamation lawsuit in New York brought by Epstein victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre against British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell. Giuffre says Maxwell helped Epstein traffic herself and other underage girls to sex parties at the billionaire pedophile’s many residences.

The case was settled in 2017 and the records were sealed — leading to an appeal by Cernovich, who was later joined by the Miami Herald and several other parties including lawyer Alan Dershowitz — who seeks to clear his name in connection with Epstein’s activities.

Ugly Americans: US Women’s Soccer Embarrasses the Country With Their Petty Displays, Cursing at the President, And Stomping on US Flag

This is great news for the US and women’s soccer.

What is not great news is the embarrassing, petty displays, the cursing their President and their stomping on the US flag.

[Comment by GreenEye: “They claim to be on some “equal pay” crusade… but what these geniuses fail to comprehend is basic economics. Rush gave us the numbers today… based on the most recent World Cup tournaments on record, the Men’s 2010 World Cup grossed $4 billion, and the players were contracted to receive 9%. The women’s tournament grossed $73 million, and the players receive 13%. So… they’re actually doing much better than the men.” That would mean male payers get $360 million (9% of $4B) in salary totals. Do these idiots think they can get that from a tournament that only grosses $73 million? ]

Users on Wikipedia Are Trying to Quietly Edit Out Democratic Connections in Epstein’s Bio

The sensational case surrounding billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein hasn’t just stopped at Epstein. People are turning it into a political fight due to Epstein’s habit of being connected to big political names such as Bill Clinton and Donald Trump.

As people in our society will do, when they want to learn who somebody is they’ll hit up America’s number one source of information, Wikipedia. The site is open sourced, meaning anyone can come in and make changes to a page. This can be used to update references, correct information, or in some cases, rewrite history for malicious reasons.

You can bet your Britannica that some were only too happy to rewrite Epstein’s history to make it seem like he was more of a figure among Republicans than Democrats.

Video: U.S. Women’s Soccer Player Tosses American Flag on Ground During World Cup Celebration

Megan Rapinoe was about to step on it before another teammate snatched it off the ground

At least two players on the U.S. women’s soccer team have vowed not to visit the White House, and now a teammate was seen tossing the American flag on the ground amidst the World Cup celebration.

The Fox broadcast caught a player holding a flag, letting it drag on the ground before dropping it altogether.

Megan Rapinoe was about to step on it before another teammate snatched it off the ground.

Rapinoe has come under criticism for refusing to stand during the National Anthem, instead opting to kneel in protest. She has vowed not to visit the White House should President Trump invite them. He already has.

[Comment: Rapinoe is a repugnant individual. By the way, as a warm up to the world cup, they played a boys U14 soccer team in Texas. The boys team won 5-2. In Australia, their female soccer team lost to boys high school team 7-1. That’s why the money is not in women’s soccer. Their level of play is far below that of mens teams. ]

White House Invites James O’Keefe to Social Media Summit on Heels of Veritas’ Google Exposé

(Washington, D.C.) — Project Veritas founder and CEO, James O’Keefe, has been invited to the White House’s Social Media Summit after Veritas published an investigative report showing political bias at Google. The Social Media Summit will take place in Washington, D.C. on July 11, 2019.

“If legendary muckrakers like Lincoln Steffens and Ida Tarbell can work alongside Teddy Roosevelt to expose and reform Big Oil,” said James O’Keefe, “Project Veritas can be synergistic with the Trump administration to pull back the curtain surrounding Big Tech.”

Project Veritas recently released documents from a Google insider that show bias against conservatives. In the first of four releases, Veritas obtained hidden camera footage of a Google executive, Jen Gennai, talking about the company’s plans to “…prevent the next Trump situation.

“The EU is a Sham Democracy”

After weeks of frenzied backroom wrangling, European leaders on July 2 nominated four federalists to fill the top jobs of the European Union. The nominations — which must be approved by the European Parliament — send a clear signal that the pro-EU establishment has no intention of slowing its relentless march toward a European superstate, a “United States of Europe,” despite a surge of anti-EU sentiment across the continent.

Following are brief profiles of the nominees for the top four positions in the next European Commission, which begins on November 1, 2019 for a period of five years.

France/Holy See: Nuncio Ventura’s Immunity Revoked

To face sex attack probe

(ANSA) — Paris, July 8 — The Vatican on Monday revoked the diplomatic immunity of papal nuncio to France mons. Luigi Ventura, who is under investigation for “sexual attacks,” the French foreign ministry announced.

A Quai d’Orsay spokesman said the ministry had received confirmation that its request for his immunity to be lifted had been met.

On February 18 Le Monde reported that a second complaint of sexual assault has been filed against Ventura.

Another Paris city council clerk, 39-year-old Benjamin G, has reported Monsignor Ventura, the French daily said.

On February 15 Le Monde said Ventura had been placed under investigation by Paris prosecutors on suspicion of “sexual attacks” on a young functionary on the Paris council.

The “aggressions” are said to have taken place during a reception at the Hotel de Ville on January 17, the French daily said.

Originally from Lombardy, Ventura is 74 and has been the Vatican’s envoy to Paris since 2009.

Interim director the of the Vatican press office Alessandro Gisotti told journalists: “The Holy See has learned from the press that an investigation has been launched by French authorities into Msgr Luigi Ventura, Apostolic Nuncio in Paris.

“The Holy See is awaiting the result of the investigations”.

Germany: Conflict in AfD Pulling Party to the Right

In at least three German states, extremist elements of the far-right Alternative for Germany are threatening to take over the party. The nationalist wing led by Björn Höcke is becoming increasingly powerful.

Regional factions of Germany’s far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) are threatening to shift the party even further to the right as extremists gain more control.

A power struggle at a conference in the AfD’s largest regional group, in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, ended with the resignation of nine of the group’s 12 leadership board members on Saturday.

This left the rump leadership under the control of deputy chairman Thomas Röckemann, considered a supporter of the AfD’s hard-nationalist wing that looks to Björn Höcke for its leadership. The conference in the small town of Warburg, meant to last two days, was broken off after a day following the resignations.

Italy: Balotelli Cited for Scooter Into Sea Bet

Reported for instigating crime, illegal betting

(ANSA) — Naples, July 8 — Marseille and former Italy striker Mario Balotelli was cited with three others Monday for betting a friend 2,000 euros to ride his motor scooter into the sea at Naples.

The former Inter, Milan, Man City and Liverpool centre forward, 28, was reported to Naples authorities for instigation to commit a crime and illegal gambling for getting his friend, Naples bar owner Catello Buonocore, to do the stunt.

Buonocore and two others were also cited.

Balotelli, who is not new to madcap stunts but appeared to have put them behind him, reportedly tried to avert judicial action by assuring police the scooter had been retrieved.

In recent years Balotelli has totted up thousands of euros in speeding fines.

Earlier in his career he controversially visited a Naples drug den and jokingly pretended to deal drugs there.

Balotelli has drawn significant media attention at times for his off-field antics.

In late 2011, he hit headlines with the British media reporting he had his new Maserati temporarily confiscated by police.

That same season he had to spend a night in a hotel because friends started a blaze with fireworks at his home.

He has also attracted attention for his anger about the racist abuse regularly directed at him in Italian matches and has threatened to walk off the pitch the next time this happens.

Perhaps the high point of his career were the brace of goals he got against Germany to put Italy into the 2012 European Championship final against Spain.

Italy boss Roberto Mancini, who put up with SuperMario’s temper tantrums at Man City, has said the door to an Azzurri return is not definitively closed.

Italy: Salvini to Cut 49 Police Escorts in a Year

‘We’ll only safeguard those who really need it’ says minister

(ANSA) — Rome, July 8 — Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said Monday he would cut 49 police escorts within a year.

The minister said he had signed a decree to this effect.

“We will safeguard only those who are really at risk,” he said.

The goal, he said, was to “make the service more efficient, both for the personnel employed and for the resources used”.

Armour-plated cars would also be cut, the minister said.

He did not say whose escorts would be lifted.

But in the past he has questioned the need for anti-mafia and pro-migrant writer Roberto Saviano to have an escort after mafia death threats.

Salvini is the leader of the anti-migrant Euroskeptic League party.

MEPs to Block Le Pen’s Party From Taking Parliament Jobs

Le Pen’s party and its allies gained a sizeable number of seats in the European Parliament, they are being kept away from taking key positions in the Parliament because MEPs are adopting the “cordon sanitaire” rule.

This practice, which was first used in Belgium in the 1990s, aims to exclude far-right political parties. In the European Parliament, it was has used in various forms for over a decade to ensure anti-European and populist parties cannot acquire key positions.

Recognise India Marine Immunity, Italy Asks Hague Court

Rome claims jurisdiction in long-running case

(ANSA) — Rome, July 8 — Italy on Monday urged the International Court of Arbitration in The Hague to recognise the immunity of two Italian marines accused of shooting dead two Indian fishermen after mistaking them for pirates in February 2012.

Ambassador Francesco Azzarello told the court that Massimiliano Latorre and Salvatore Girone were functionaries of the Italian state doing their duty on board an Italian flagged ship in international waters and were therefore to be deemed “immune to foreign justice”.

Italy is claiming jurisdiction in the case.

The ambassador went on to say that India already considers the marines guilty.

“In India’s eyes there is no presumption of innocence: the marines were guilty of murder even before the charges were laid”.

He also said “there were unjustifiable postponements of the trial in India. Special procedures were invented, in violation of the Indian Constitution.” In reply, Indian representative G. Balasubramanian told the court that “Italy maintains it has the exclusive jurisdiction in the case but one must take into account the fact that India and the two fishermen are the victims in this case. “Two human beings aboard an Indian boat were killed by individuals who were on a merchant ship,” he said.

Deputy Premier Matteo Salvini said on Facebook: “always at the side of our soldiers, in Italy and the world, because they defend our security, our borders, our pride and our dignity”.

Defence Minister Elisabetta Trenta said “the Italian government has the utmost faith in the International Court of Arbitration.

“Dear Salvatore and Massimiliano, you are not alone. Your or your families. I send you a strong hug in the name of the government and all the defence ministry”.

The Most Powerful People in Europe Are Simply Being Appointed Like Game of Thrones

INCREDIBLY powerful EU positions are being dished out like royal patronage Game of Thrones by a Brussels boy’s club in a “disgusting insult to democracy”, it was claimed today.

EU candidate appointment is a ‘backroom stitch up’ says expert

Express.co.uk Head of News Paul Baldwin told The Brexit The Final Countdown podcast the whole process of appointing Europe’s top jobs this week was more akin to Game of Thrones than a modern democracy. Mr Baldwin was joining presenter Rebecca Hutson Express.co.uk News Editor Thomas Hunt, and Brussels correspondent Joe Barnes. He said: “The most powerful jobs in Europe are changing hands and those who inherit the titles will hold sway over the lives of 500 million Europeans. Yet the whole process of appointing these favoured EU sons and daughters has more in common with the kind of royal patronage we see in Game of Thrones than any self-respecting modern democracy in the 21st century.

“It’s a disgusting insult to democracy and exactly why people are so suspicious of the EU — and rightly so.”

Tommy Robinson to Request Emergency Political Asylum in the United States

Activist who faces jail for contempt of court says his life is at risk Tommy Robinson is set to ask President Donald Trump to give him emergency political asylum in the United States.

Last week, the activist was found in contempt of court over a Facebook Live broadcast of defendants in a criminal trial. Robinson and his supporters claim he was merely engaging in journalism in covering a sexual grooming gang case at Leeds Crown Court in May 2018.

Robinson now faces a maximum penalty of two years in jail.

However, he is set to ask for emergency political asylum in America over fears his life is at risk. Robinson told the BBC he was convicted “for who I am, not what I have done”…

The United States Refugee Act of 1980, which is consistent with the United Nations’ 1967 Protocol on Refugees, provides for the resettlement of persons subject to persecution in their homelands and includes cases where persons are likely to face persecution for their “political opinion”.

Some of Robinson’s supporters have expressed fears that another spell in prison could represent a death sentence if he is incarcerated amongst a large Muslim jail population.

Last time the activist was in jail, he lost over 40 pounds due to concerns about the inmates preparing his meals. He also complained about being on the receiving end of physical and psychological abuse.

[Comment: He is right. An Independent reporter did the same, nothing happened there. He is in the same position as Soviet dissdents were at the height of the Soviet Union. Should leftists in America succeed to deny Tommy, he should then look to Hungary, Poland or Russia — countries that lived through communism.]

UK: School Bosses Forcing Islamic Indoctrination

Top teachers in effectively are forcing Islamic indoctrination on students in Britain, with a growing movement to strip parents of their legal right to remove their children from objectionable religious classes.

Britain’s Independent newspaper reported a study showed that while the law allows parents to remove their children from classes that violate their faith, most headteachers believe parents should be stopped from withdrawing children from religious education over Islam lessons.

Christine Douglass-Williams at the Shariah-watching Jihad Watch noted that more than two in five school leaders and religious education teachers in the U.K. have received requests for students to be withdrawn from teaching about one particular religion.

“It is the only religion in the West of which lobbies representing its adherents are screaming ‘racism’ and ‘Islamophobia’ at every turn in reply to any criticism,” she wrote. “It is the only religion that is trying to curb Western free speech—the cornerstone of democracy. It is the only religion that mandates the murder of adherents who choose to leave it (apostates), the murder of gays, the murder of blasphemers. It is the only religion that is ubiquitously persecuting minorities globally and mandates the rape of infidel women. It is the only religion that has a deep network of adherents engaged in jihad war against disbelievers.”

The survey of 450 headteachers found 71 percent “believe a law allowing parents to withdraw their children from RE is no longer required, according to the study in the British Journal of Religious Education.”

UK: Scotland Yard Will Use a Drone to Help Catch Speeding and Dangerous Drivers From Next Month Becoming First Police Force to Use Flying Gadget in This Way

Police are to use a drone to catch speeding motorists for the first time this month — but the Met insists it will only target the most dangerous drivers.

Scotland Yard is trialling the use of the technology to help catch dangerous, careless and speeding drivers in a landmark initiative which is the first of its kind in the UK.

The device will be used as an eye in the sky to alert officers on the ground to reckless drivers on some of London’s busiest roads.

The drone, which also has night vision capability, will be used on main roads such as the A10 in Enfield where eight people have been killed in the past two years — many in speeding-related accidents.

Officers stress that the drone will be focused on capturing dangerous drivers who are putting lives at risk rather than targeting those who are travelling a few miles per hour over the limit.

Modern Shiite Islam’s Jew-Hating Koranic Kampf

Tabatabai’s modern Koranic Kampf re-affirms 500 years of Iranian Shiite Islam’s intense theo-political animus toward the Jews, conjoined to a broader jihad war for the submission of all non-Muslims under the Sharia.

by Dr. Andrew G. Bostom

Shiite Iran’s theocratic “Supreme Leader” Ayatollah Khamenei, in a video uploaded June 27, 2019 to his website, did not share Jared Kushner’s ebullient appraisal of the Bahrain Conference, organized to advance the Palestinian Muslim territories’ economy.

Khamenei decried the conference as “a grave act of treason against the world of Islam,” and insisted,

“The Holy City of Bait al-Muqaddas [Jersualem] will continue to be the capital of Palestine, [and] it will remain the first qiblah [direction of prayer] for Muslims.”

Less than a week later, July 3, 2019, Khamenei issued a brief statement on the Hajj pilgrimage entitled, “Hajj is a political religious obligation,” which declared:

“Supporting and defending the oppressed in the World of Islam, like the Palestinian nation, is a political matter, exactly based on Islamic teachings…”

Hit and Run Killer’s Outrageous Ultimatum: Speeding Drink Driver Who Fled to India After Killing a Student in a Horror Crash Says He Will Only Return to Face Court if He is Given a ‘Maximum Two-Year Sentence’

A speeding drink driver who fled to India after killing a student in a horror crash says he will only return to face court in Australia if he is given a ‘maximum two-year sentence’.

Puneet Puneet who was 19 at the time, was drink driving and speeding when he fatally hit Dean Hofstee, a Queensland student, in Melbourne, in 2008.

He was driving at 150kmh in a 60kmh zone, with a blood alcohol reading of 0.165. His crimes carry a maximum sentence of 20 years jail.

He pleaded guilty to the hit and run before he fled to India on his friend’s passport and has since faced court 80 times in attempt to avoid extradition to Australia.

Puneet also pleaded guilty to causing injury to Mr Hofstee’s friend Clancy Coker.

He faces up to 20 years in jail and his lawyer Kanhaiya Kumar Singha said Puneet is ready to face court for the alleged killing, as long as he is given surety of a safe life.

‘Let the government of Australia give us an offer that he will be sentenced to a maximum of two years and surety of his safe life in jail. He will immediately surrender,’ he told The Herald Sun.

The message was not well received by Acting Attorney-General Gavin Jennings, who slammed the comment and said the courts will decide the appropriate punishment.

‘Puneet Puneet needs to return to Victoria to face the consequences of his actions, and we won’t rest until justice is served,’ he said.

Puneet is currently behind bars in India and his lawyer argued that he is ‘not running away from the law’.

‘Keeping him behind the bars in India or Australia doesn’t affect anyone. The purpose is to punish him, if he is guilty.’

He is due to face court again on July 15.

Struggling Elderly Hairdresser’s Hilarious Response to Being Slapped With a $322 Fine for Donating Books to the Salvation Army

An elderly man has given a hilarious response after he was slapped with a $322 fine for trying to donate his books to charity.

Dan Alessio, a 78-year-old hairdresser, was fined for littering on March 6 when he dropped off the books to a Salvos in Fairfield in Melbourne’s northeast before opening hours.

The council then tracked Mr Alessio down through the licence plate on his car and issued him the fine, which he said has completely changed his attitude towards donating.

‘Yeah don’t donate anymore, bin it instead, bin it,’ Mr Alessio said on The Project.

The answer prompted a roar of laughter from the audience.

British Builder Who Moved to Kenya to Help Build Hospitals Dies in Poverty in a Mud Hut After His Wife ‘Ran Off and Sold All His Property When He Caught Her in Bed With Another Man’

In 1978, he married Elizabeth in the Kakamega’s Anglican Church.

After the couple settled in western Kenya, he bought land which he had put in his then-Kenyan wife’s name.

He said she had been a cook when they met, and that together they had adopted five foster children, including one who was motorbike taxi driver and was one of the few who continued to try and care for him after he lost everything.

Speaking to local media in 2015, a tearful Barry said it all went sour after he caught her in bed with another man.

He said: ‘My wife eloped with another man. She has sold all my property. I have been left with nothing.

‘She sold all my 33 acres of land and now she is planning to sell the remaining land to render me a squatter in my own land.’

He would have been homeless after the divorce were it not for the fact that well-wishers had built a mud hut in the Malava rain forest, in Kenya’s Kakamega County.

Despite this kindness he lived in poverty suffering from several severe illnesses including cancer in his right ear, high blood pressure and swollen feet, staying as he said in the hope of finding justice.

He needed daily treatment for his feet which was provided for free by a health centre.

Tragically however he lacked transport from his rainforest home to receive it on most days, and described life at the end as ‘hell on earth.’

Venezuela to Ditch Visa & MasterCard by Early 2020 — Reports

The central bank of Venezuela will develop an independent national payment system to get rid of international giants Visa and Mastercard in response to US sanctions, according to local media citing the regulator.

The document, which also separately mentions multi-national debit card service Maestro owned by Mastercard, orders a suspension of debit card operations starting November 2019 and payments via credit cards from January 2020.

The joint order was reportedly issued on May 16 by the central bank and Superintendency of the Institutions of the Banking Sector of Venezuela (SUDEBAN), responsible for ensuring the country’s banks comply with local regulations. It instructs the banks to create a “sovereign” system to process financial operations that will use clients’ biometric data.

Danish History Professor Says it’s Time to Build a Wall Around Europe

“Protecting borders is necessary, otherwise the population will rebel against the government”

Danish history professor Uffe Østergaard says it’s time to build a wall around Europe because integration of migrants has failed and, “Protecting borders is necessary, otherwise the population will rebel against the government”.

Østergaard is a Jean Monnet professor of European civilisation and integration at Aarhus University and professor of European and Danish history at Copenhagen Business School. He specializes in European identity history and has studied multicultural and multiethnic states such as Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire and their successor states.

Writing in an opinion piece for the Politiken newspaper, Østergaard admits that he used to be heavily in favor of multiculturalism but has since reversed his position.

“The time has come to build walls with wire fences in four lanes, floodlights and guard posts,” states the headline of his piece, which argues that if this doesn’t take place there will be a split between western and eastern Europe based on adversarial ideas on the management of immigration.

It is simply not possible to absorb such large numbers of people into welfare states, according to Østergaard.

Dozens of Illegal Boat Migrants Land in England Over Weekend

Over forty illegal migrants landed in England after taking to sea in boats over the weekend, according to reports.

Tens of thousands of illegal migrants attempt to break into the United Kingdom by forcing their way into Britain-bound lorries, boarding ferries, or storming the Channel Tunnel, but illegal sea crossings of the type seen in Greece, Italy, and Spain were quite rare until recently.

Groups of Migrants Are Terrorizing German Outdoor Pools, Media Calls Them “Youths”

In several German towns groups of “youths” have terrorized guests and staff at outdoor pools last weeks. Especially the migrant-heavy state Nordrhein-Westfalen have been plagued by this.

Saturday 29th of June it was chaos in an outdoor pool in Düsseldorf. Some guests felt threatened by a group, that in German media was called “youths”. They made noise and they started jumping over the towels and blankets on which the bathers were lying. An angry father told the group to quit it. Then it went crazy. A large group surrounded the family. According to police it was up to 400 persons.

Liberal Media Hides Violent, Profanity-Laced Meltdown by Freshman Democrat Rashida Tlaib at Migrant Detention Center (Video)

Last Monday several Democratic lawmakers, including freshman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib, toured the illegal migrant holding facility in El Paso, Texas.

These same open borders representatives also held a press conference with reporters following their tour of the facility.

During her speech Rep. Rashida Tlaib suffered a violent, profanity-laced meltdown.

Here is video of Tlaib cursing during her speech.

The media totally ignored this revolting display.

Migrant Child Gang Puts Fear Into Neighbours — Swedish Children Scared to Go Outside

Rape threats, beating with clubs, throwing rocks. The last year’s ordeal for the neighbours in a small vicinity of Grums, Sweden, is more and more turning into a nightmare. A child gang consisting of 8-12 year old migrants puts the neighbourhood in such a fear that Swedish children no longer go outside and play.

Sweden: Gang of 10-Year-Old Migrants Terrorizing Locals, Threatening to Rape

A gang of migrant children aged eight to 12 have been terrorizing locals in Grums, Sweden with taunts, physical assaults, and even rape threats.

Kids are returning home bloody from beatings and more and more parents are not letting their children play alone outside.

“They have thrown rocks or beaten [other kids] with sheet metal pipes and sticks so children started to bleed,” said a resident. “The worst thing was that a child was strangled and received marks.”

“But it is also about sexual threats: ‘I will rape you,’ they say.”

Police arrived to asses the situation after the tenant association contacted them; one officer said he had never seen anything like this.

“I have never experienced that such small children do such things,” said officer Hynynen. “They have poured garbage into the mailbox of people, jerked up flowers and threatened both children and adults sexually.”

Trump Burns the Dems & Media on “Con Job” About Detention of Illegals

President Trump set the record straight with one perfect tweet!

He tweeted out in a nutshell exactly what’s going on with the media and the Democrats:

The Fake News Media, in particular, the Failing @nytimes, is writing phony and exaggerated accounts of the Border Detention Centers.

First of all, people should not be entering our Country illegally, only for us to then have to care for them. We should be allowed to focus on United States Citizens first. Border Patrol and others in Law Enforcement have been doing a great job.

We said there was a Crisis — the Fake News & the Dems said it was “manufactured.”

Now all agree we were right, but they always knew that. They are crowded (which we brought up, not them) because the Dems won’t change the Loopholes and Asylum. Big Media Con Job!

Alyssa Milano Writes a Check Her B*tt Can’t Cash With Hateful Tweet About Choosing Between Political Parties

Alyssa Milano is trying really, really, really hard to vilify people who disagree with her politically. Perhaps she has seen the writing on the wall (Democrats really don’t have much to run on in the upcoming election) so she’s sticking with what she knows … which isn’t much. Cheap, personal shots at strangers.

Alyssa Milano

Imagine being a proud supporter of a political party which is anti-immigrant, anti-woman, anti-LGBTQ, anti-gunsafety, anti-healthcare, and anti-fair-elections?

You have a distinct choice.

Choose hope. Choose love. Choose peace. Choose unity. Choose equality. Vote accordingly.

Excuse our French but what an absolute pile of horse cr*p.

Democrats are about hope, love, peace, unity, and equality? On what planet?

Angry Fans Celebrate U.S. Women’s Soccer World Cup Title by Screaming, “Equal Pay!” [Video]

The Gateway Pundit has been reporting on the selfish behavior of the US women’s soccer captain — Rapinoe started kneeling during the national anthem back in 2016. She said it was a protest against “white supremacy” and in support of black lives matter movement. She later said it was a protest against the treatment of gays in the US.

But recently she said her protesting during the anthem is her f*** you to Trump and all of his racism.

Last Tuesday President Trump ripped the far-left activist for trashing her country, “You have to stand proudly for the national anthem or you shouldn’t be playing, you shouldn’t be there, maybe they shouldn’t be in the country.”

Today, the fans of the women’s U.S. soccer team took a page out of the feminazi captain’s playbook, and instead of enjoying the women’s U.S. soccer team won the World Cup, they opted to cheer for equal pay for the female athletes.

Angry Antifa Drag Queens Surround and Threaten Pro-Trump Journalist Alicia Powe at DC Rally (Video)

Over a dozen Antifa protesters dressed in drag threatened and intimidated a conservative journalist Saturday in Washington, DC, as they counter-protested a “Demand Free Speech” rally.

Dressed in full drag, Antifa protesters surrounded independent journalist Alicia Powe as she began conducting interviews with members of the leftist organization.

The group of white males then violently clacked their rainbow emblazed fans in her face and accused her of being a white supremacist.

“Social justice warrior” thugs warned each other not to talk to the “far-right wing journalist” after noticing her camera woman was wearing an American flag scarf.

Fortunately, a massive group of District of Columbia police officers was assigned to the rally, successfully preventing violence from escalating.

Fact Check: Antifa is for Angry White Fascists

Babylon Bee and Christian Daily Reporter founder Adam Ford tweeted, “Portland Antifa mugshots have been released and I’m sure you’ll agree that the lack of diversity is extremely problematic.”

So problematic. TMZ has more diversity in their collection of mugshots from New Hampshire’s North Country. You’ll find a better cross-section of intersectionality on Martha Stewart’s mailing list. Or maybe these are just everyone’s headshots from a recent casting call for a reboot of “Fargo.”

After sending journalist Andy Ngo to an overnight hospital stay for a brain-bleed last week for the crime of reporting while Asian (or was his crime being gay?), Antifa thugs took their audacity to new lows over the weekend. In more Portland street violence last week, the Rose City Antifa account blamed John Blum for getting in the way of their fists and clubs.

French Press Criticises U.S. Women’s Soccer Team for Being ‘Mostly White’

The French press has criticised the American team which is heading into the FIFA Women’s World Cup for association football (soccer) for being “mostly composed of white players”.

Le Monde, a left-leaning daily and of France’s newspapers of record, published an article by Stéphanie Le Bars lamenting the fact that a soccer team which has “become in the United States the symbol of the defence of sexual minorities and the equality of rights between men and women” is insufficiently diverse.

Save Babies and Abort Judicial Supremacy

With U.S. judges usurping the power to make or revoke laws — and Congress sitting idly by — it’s time to nullify extra-constitutional judicial supremacy.

The states passing the pro-life laws can also do something, immediately, about Roe and usurpative judges. They can and should refuse to abide by Roe — and other unconstitutional rulings — within their own state borders.

This is justifiable because Roe borders on insanity. Does anyone really believe the 14th Amendment’s framers mean to enshrine prenatal infanticide as a “right”? In fact, they weren’t even thinking about it. Moreover, the Constitution gives the federal government no warrant to dictate state actions regarding the matter. The notion that the federal judiciary can tell states what to do about abortion is an invention of activist judges themselves. Moreover, nullifying federal judicial overreach is a no-brainer because Roe-like activism is not the exception but the rule, from a judicial branch that long ago squandered its credibility.

Just consider, for example, how a judge recently blocked construction of part of our border wall…

Consider: The legislative branch’s power to make law is granted by the Constitution. The executive branch’s power to enforce law is granted by the Constitution. And the judicial branch’s supreme “power” to strike down law and enjoin the other two branches is granted by… what?

It’s not in the Constitution. Rather, this extra-constitutional judicial supremacy was declared by the courts themselves, most notably in the Marbury v. Madison decision (1803). That’s right: The courts gave the courts the courts’ trump-card power.

It’s a great con if you can pull it off, which the courts have done because the other two branches, with rare exception, have abided by it ever since.

UK: LGBT Teacher Accused of Screaming at Christian Kids

A head teacher who already has angered parents for organizing a gay pride pride parade for primary students and promoting LGBT views in class is under fire again.

The British teacher, Susan Papas of Heavers Farmer Primary in Croydon, in south London, allegedly demanded five days of detention for a boy and a girl after they asked to be exempted from an LGBT lesson on June 20 during gay pride month.

The girl, Kaysey, a Pentecostal Christian, says she was kept in detention for five hours, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

And Papas is accused of screaming at the two children and accusing them of demanding death for LGBT members.

  1. I was hoping Tommy would ask the political asylum in the US and I do hope that -if granted- this will be enough a victory for the British government: they would be able to declare him good riddance, and – just like the Eastern European Communist states did to their dissidents- either control his behavior by holding his family hostage ( not letting them leave the UK), or force the entire family into exile, (while making sure that the MSM describes it as a “very predictable act of cowardice coming from a notorious criminal”). Most importantly: it would save his life.

    • The Brit “elites”, through their tyrannical courts (sound familiar?) have targeted Robinson, dooming him to a likely death in one of their prisons.

    • Next most important cause you can’t have one without the other, his kids can finish growing up with a dad. I tried calling three different shows on SiriusXM (patriot) and I kept getting we are only taking on topic calls. Alex Jones let him on. At least it is on drudge report.

  2. Two years in prison? What did he do to deserve that? Oh yeah that’s what muslims dictate. Democracy is the best system to help establish the Caliphate. The way Britain and Europe are behaving is not even conceived by False Prophet or predicted. eh, civilized.

    Muslim world: are you dizzy with the passionate perversion of the west? Or are you stunned by the depth of its stupidity. And you have nothing for the west but scorn?

    “Tommy Robinson has asked President Trump to grant him emergency political asylum in the United States.”

    Ilhan Omar will oppose that vigorously. Rachida Tlaib will oppose that.

    Muslims are waiting for him. They will be rewarded by the west.

    What a rotten Europe!

    • We can see what 10 weeks in prison did to him last year—on release he had the appearance of a gaunt and hunted man. If there is any new jail time meted out for Tommy then we know that this fate (and worse) is exactly what the authorities have in mind for him.

      He is a true political refugee, with his own government harrassing and hounding him, unwilling to provide basic assurances of health and safety to him. When his plight is compared to that of the thousands of well-fed, luggage-laden “asylum seekers” who have been allowed to cross unimpeded from Vermont to Quebec in the past couple of years, the glaring disparity becomes apparent. Tommy needs help and I hope the US can provide it.

      • TR has been thrown to the incarcerated jackals on several occasions, at full knowledge and risk to his health and life. By a UK judge, in a UK court room.
        If only the officials of British law & justice were as evenhanded in their parity:

        The UK legal system continually refuses to deport criminals of varying severity to their homelands, for risk of “threat” to life. And so careless is the system that this particular criminal took full advantage of achieving EU legal permission to remain. And awarded him £80k in compensation for periods of rightful incarceration that he deemed to be “torture”.

        Hmm, and where is Tommy’s compensation for official abuses – including the wrongful criminal sentence passed on him last May, which rendered him in peril for his life, in the midst of enemy combatants who meted daily torture to a beleaguered man in solitary confinement, adjacent to the prison mosque. Forced to keep the cell window closed to attacks during a 30C+ heatwave. He was denied imperative medical care and for his known PTSD, denied legally entitled monies to buy food – such that his mental & physical health plummeted, and was denied vital access to his lawyer. These abuses were permitted because the sentencing judge mis/applied a criminal loading for contempt of court – when the judicial sentence should in fact have been a civil conviction, and therefore less punitive. (That a ‘criminal’ loading could legally permit such a litany of abuses to a prisoner in jail is a disgrace and a fundamental abuse of human rights notwithstanding. And the UK needs to fix it.)
        And fix this sort of abuse …
        ://www.google.com/amp/s/www.express.co.uk/news/uk/878216/EU-violent-criminal-staying-in-UK-deportation-taxpayer/

        And this. Of the sort that TR has complained so loudly. These particular individuals have still not been deported. That their child victims are further traumatised at seeing them back on their local streets is further trampling upon justice and ignoring their frail human rights When is the expulsion date …?
        ://www.google.com/amp/s/www.express.co.uk/news/uk/1141466/rochdale-grooming-gang-paedophile-scandal-greater-manchester-police/

        The govt ‘pet group’ are even exempt from jail terms on grounds of the wife’s lack of the English language which would make her life difficult. Indeedy. The family being dependent upon him, and he being dependent upon welfare.
        ://www.google.com/amp/s/www.express.co.uk/news/uk/465538/Islamic-teacher-who-molested-girl-11-escapes-jail-as-wife-doesn-t-speak-English/

        Merely a few examples. Just when will the UK legal system stand up for justice in this country …

    • What a rotten West. And the regular people are disgusted at the mess and treachery foisted upon them by a broken system.

      I pray TR gets out safely. He has suffered too much for one brave man.
      Jesus was the sacrificial lamb, and died so we wouldn’t have to.
      It’s enough already.

      God bless him and his family.

  4. UK: LGBT Teacher Accused of Screaming at Christian Kids…

    This is not the only current case, and it looks like there is a nationwide UK “policy” running througout the schools, so the teachers are backed up by this policy, even though the policy is probably against the law…

    Another case from Scotland is discussed here:

  5. GERMANY

    A family of eight has been granted political Asylum. Not in Germany, but in Russia. The German family made their case, they fear early sexualisation of their children in school, the introduction of chipping and that their children will be taken from them because the refuse to subdue themselves to Merkels left-wing indoctrination.

    The are fleeing from the violence (rape, gang rape, killings, stabbings, islamification) brought to their once peaceful country in 2015.

  6. I said I was unable to access Vlad’s videos; also having problems with Gmail, and getting back into GoV just now, so it cold be me- sorry!

    • BitChute And DTube don’t play properly on some OS/browser combinations. I check them to make sure they work on my system; that’s all I can do.

  7. So why isn’t Tommy Robinson and his family at the US Embassy yesterday and we’re reading that he was flown to the USA today? If the President of the United States of America doesn’t grant him political asylum and instead lets the criminal elements within the UK go through with their cowardly process of elimination of Tommy by their proxy assassins then I would say that it would be a very dark stain on the Trump administration. By the likes of Sir Kim Darroch, who is not liked or well thought of within the U.S. alone should our country take Tommy Robinson and his family in order that they may live in relative safety.

    If such a person isn’t given refuge and given any measure of protections then all of this is a sham being perpetrated on the American public. This is because you must be made to see that Mr. Robinson would already be here if he hated this Constitutional Republic and belonged to a certain theo-political death cult. Or traveled to Mexico and walked across the border into Texas, New Mexico, Arizona or California like so many from Africa and Middle Eastern foreign nationals have already done with impunity.

  8. GERMANY

    VIDEO Alternative for Germany Party (AfD)

    “Friends, all over the country, women and girls are being killed, for the way they want to live; stabbed, shot, killed with the hatchet or beheaded under “Allahu Aakbar” cries.

    They are burned alive, acid burned, dragged to death by cars or rolled over by trucks.

    Around 270 honor killings in about four years are just the tip of the iceberg. Women and children are now raped and sexually harassed almost daily. Non-Muslims are discriminated against or insulted.

    Of course we can not say that all out loud, because then we are populists.”

  9. I think the best way to ensure that the women’s soccer team gets equal pay is to lower the amount of pay the men get. It is only soccer, after all.

  10. Dear God in Heaven,
    Cast your hedge of protection around this brave man who is laying down his life for the truth of the atrocities against your children in Rotterdam. Please preserve his life and protect his family. No greater love than a man lay down his life for his friends. In the name of Your son who laid down His life for us.
