UK Wage Hikes Wiped Out to Zero by Soaring Inflation Rate

Inflation has nullified increases to wages in Britain last year, with workers experiencing a decline in pay in real terms in November, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) revealed on Tuesday.

The latest report on average weekly earnings from the UK’s official statistician body found that in the three months leading up to November, wages — excluding bonuses — rose by 3.8 per cent compared to the same time period in the previous year. However, due to rising inflation, which has hit a ten-year high, wage rises were reduced to zero per cent in real terms.

But Microsoft has been gobbling up large companies within the video games industry, to an extent that should be starting to raise eyebrows.

Debunked: NPR Runs False Report Claiming Sotomayor is Boycotting Oral Arguments Over Gorsuch’s Refusal to Wear a Mask

NPR published a story on Tuesday alleging that Supreme Court Justice Gorsuch refused to wear a mask despite worries from Justice Sotomayor, who is diabetic. The only problem with the story is that it appears to be untrue.

According to the story, which was written by Nina Totenberg, court sources told the outlet that Sotomayor felt unsafe in close proximity with others, particularly those who are unmasked. Chief Justice John Roberts, understanding that, instructed the other judges and court staffers to mask up. As the report goes, Gorsuch was the only one to reject the instruction.

Florida Senate Panel Endorses Ron Desantis’ Push for New Limits on How Race is Discussed

TALLAHASSEE — Gov. Ron DeSantis’ push for new limits on how race is discussed in Florida classrooms and workplaces was advanced Tuesday by a Senate committee, despite criticism that it will spawn censorship, lawsuits and more problems for teachers.

The legislation (SB 148) by Sen. Manny Diaz, R-Miami, is said by its sponsor to protect “individual freedoms” and prevent discrimination in schools and the workplace.

The measure would bar teaching in grades K-12 that could make individuals feel responsible for historic wrongs because of their race, color, sex or national origin. At work, employment practices or training programs that make an individual feel guilty on similar grounds could be considered an unlawful employment practice — and subject a company to a lawsuit.

Teen ISIS Fan Sentenced to Life in Prison for Stabbing 13-Year-Old Boy to Death in Sleepover Row About Islam

A Florida judge has sentenced to life a former teenage Isis fan who killed his friend at a sleepover in 2018.

Corey Johnson, now 21, was sentenced to life by circuit judge Cheryl Caracuzzo on Thursday after he was convicted of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder last November.

On 12 March 2018, Johnson was staying at his friend Kyle Bancroft’s home for a sleepover when he stabbed 13-year-old Jovanni Sierra.

He also stabbed Mr Bancroft’s brother Dane and his mother Elaine Simon, who was also at the home then.

Ms Simon and Mr Bancroft sustained serious injuries but survived the attack.

While Johnson’s counsel wanted him to spend 40 years in prison, the court sentenced him to life.

“I don’t think rehabilitation is likely,” Ms Caracuzzo was quoted as saying by The Palm Beach Post newspaper.

Police said Johnson had killed Jovanni because he had made an offensive remark about Islam, that Johnson had professed to following.

Italy: Centre Right Urges Berlusconi to Declare Presidency Bid

Brings ‘authoritativeness and experience country deserves’

(ANSA) — ROME, JAN 14 — The centre right on Friday urged three-time former premier and media mogul Silvio Berlusconi to formally declare that he is bidding for the Italian presidency after Sergio Mattarella’s term ends on February 3.

A summit between Brothers of Italy (FdI) leader Giorgia Meloni, League leader Matteo Salvini, and Berlusconi, said the 85-year-old billionaire businessman-turned-politician offered the “authoritativeness and experience the country deserves”.

Despite not officially throwing his hat into the ring for the election that starts on January 24, Berlusconi has been campaigning hard for the post.

The centre left say that with his legal woes and long hostility to the left he is too divisive to represent national unity.

Italian Left (SI) leader Nicola Fratoianni on Friday urged MPs who have allegedly received cash gifts from the former premier recently to give them back.

Premier Mario Draghi is the bookies’ favourite to succeed Mattarella but many hope he will stay on as premier until the natural end of the parliamentary term in 2023 to oversee reforms needed to secure almost 200 billion euros in post COVID EU recovery funds.

The Turin flying squad have questioned the girl’s mother, her partner and a neighbour.

It is not clear whether the girl was alone with the partner when she fell or whether the mother was also there.

The partner is of Tunisian origin.

An autopsy has been ordered.

New EU Parliament President, Same Progressive Course

After the passing of the former European Parliament (EP) president, Italian David Sassoli, there was never any doubt about who is going to succeed him. After the only conservative candidate for the job, European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) politician Kosma Zlotowski, withdrew from the race for mysterious reasons, only three progressive candidates were left to fight for the job: Roberta Metsola of the European People’s Party, the Greens’ Alice Kuhnke, and United Left’s Sira Rego.

Metsola swept to victory with ease, receiving 458 votes.

His victory may be proof to some that a conservative is now president in the parliament, based on the belief that the EPP is a center-right political bloc. The voting history and rhetoric of the party over the last few years tells a different story — one which unequivocally demonstrates that the EPP and the parliament’s left blocs are in a de facto majority ruling coalition, and apart from a minority of dissenters, the rest of the formerly conservative alliance is indistinguishable from other pro-migration, progressive liberal MEPs.

UK Planning PR Blitz Against Chat Privacy — Report

Privacy watchdogs have accused the UK government of “scaremongering” after reports emerged of its plans to use emotive stunts in a taxpayer-funded ad campaign to sway public opinion against end-to-end encryption in messaging apps.

The ad drive is reportedly part of a “multi-pronged publicity attack” on the data security method (used in popular apps like WhatsApp, Telegram, and Signal), which alleges that end-to-end encryption (E2EE) impedes efforts to combat online child abuse, according to Rolling Stone.

The Home Office-backed push — which apparently specifically targets Meta’s plans to roll out E2EE to its Facebook Messenger app — includes a media blitz and the involvement of UK charities and law enforcement agencies, presentation materials accessed by the publication revealed.

Israeli Vaccine Chief: “We Have Made Mistakes”

Professor Cyrille Cohen is head of Immunology at Bar Ilan University and a member of the advisory committee for vaccines for the Israeli Government. In a wide-ranging and forthright interview, the Professor tells Freddie Sayers:

  • The Green Pass / vaccine passport concept is no longer relevant in the Omicron era and should be phased out (he expects it to be in short order in Israel)
  • He and his colleagues were surprised and disappointed that the vaccines did not prevent transmission, as they had originally hoped
  • The biggest mistake of the pandemic in Israel was closing schools and education — he apologised for that
  • Widespread infection is now an inevitable part of future immunity — otherwise known as herd immunity
  • Omicron has accelerated the pandemic into the endemic phase, in which Covid will be “like flu”

Ball Girl Collapses During Match at Australian Open 2022

Yet another vaccine injury? According to Channel 7, the ball girl’s condition has improved, although it remains “unknown what caused her to collapse in the first place”.

A ball girl at the Australian Open is said to be “recovering” after collapsing on the court during a match. The two singles players raced to her aid. Spain’s Pedro Martinez and Federico Delbonis of Argentina had been playing a first-round match on Court 17 at Melbourne Park when the ball girl suddenly fainted.

Both players stayed with her until help arrived. The girl was checked by tournament medical staff and a dedicated nurse before being taken away by her parents. The temperatures in Melbourne were mild on Monday, with a high of 25 degrees Celsius. Despite that, some sources tried to blame the “heat”.

In the early stages of myocarditis, shortness of breath and chest pain are quite common. When children develop myocarditis, they often faint, suffer from unexplained chest pain and shortness of breath.

Crackdown Against July 11 Protesters and Their Families Continues in Cuba Despite Outcry

The mass trials against July 11 protesters continue this week in Cuba despite the outcry of family members, local activists and international organizations, as the communist government has signaled it won’t budge on its intention to snuff other attempts at a popular rebellion.

Illegal Migrants May Soon be Free to Work Legally in Britain, A Move Farage Calls the ‘Biggest Green Light to Criminal Trafficking Gangs’ He’s Ever Seen

U.K. conservative broadcaster Nigel Farage has criticized government proposals — which failed to make headlines this week — that could see asylum seekers crossing the English Channel eligible to work legally within six months of their arrival in Britain.

Offering analysis of a week in which Boris Johnson’s administration announced new measures to stem the flow of illegal immigration into Britain from mainland Europe, which included signing off on the British military taking control of U.K Border Force’s operations in the Channel, Farage unearthed a move by the Home Office hardly mentioned by the British press that he described as “the biggest green light to the criminal trafficking gangs I think I’ve ever seen!”

“Those that come here illegally will soon legally be able to work. No visa. No application. No aggro,” the former UKIP and Brexit Party leader told his YouTube subscribers.

Italy: Fathers, Mothers of Migrant Families Are Heroes Says Pope

Mary and Joseph experienced exile too says Francis

(ANSA) — ROME, JAN 13 — The fathers and mothers of migrant and refugees families are heroes, Pope Francis said Thursday in an interview with Vatican media.

“These fathers and mothers are heroes for me because I find in them the courage of those who risk their lives for the love of their children, for the love of their families,” said the pontiff.

“Mary and Joseph experienced this exile too, this trial, having had to flee into a foreign land because of the violence and power of Herod.

Francis said he was thinking of the “many fathers, many mothers, many families who flee wars, who are pushed back at the borders of Europe and other places, who live situations of pain, injustice, and who no one takes seriously and are deliberately ignored”.

UK: Boat Carrying Dozens of Migrants Including Children Comes Perilously Close to a P&O Ferry as They Cross the Channel to Dover…

…as the number reaching the UK so far this year soars to THREE TIMES more than in the whole of January 2021

A small boat carrying dozens of migrants including children came perilously close to a P&O ferry while crossing the Channel today.

Around 30 people including young children were brought to shore onboard Border Force vessels this morning, with two small boats landing in Dover after making the dangerous crossing from Europe in the freezing cold and dark.

Photos taken on the approach to the Port of Dover in Kent show a group of men, women and children huddled in lifejackets as their dinghy edges towards the passenger ferry, moments before they were pulled to safety by the Border Force boat.

  1. Here in the USA it’s great to be a criminal. (and this is not the Babylon Bee)

    We just found out that the illegal migrant/human scum/barbarian invaders not only don’t have to be “vaccinated” they also don’t need proper identification papers in order to fly around what was formerly our Country.

    Instead, they are allowed to use their ARREST WARRANTS as ID to get on planes and whatever else they feel like doing.

    Let’s review: if you are an illegal thug/criminal/culture enricher/murderer/rapist/child molester/terrorist/drug dealer, etc. you will be allowed to get on planes and fly into the USA without being tested or vaxxed for Covid and without proper ID.

    All you will need to show is proof that you are a criminal in good standing and you’re good to go. I’m not sure if the illegals are required to wear muzzle masks, but I would love to see even an air marshal arguing with an MS 13 gang member about it.

    Meanwhile, upstanding American citizen taxpayers have been stripped of our rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We are not allowed to even think of getting on a plane unless we’ve been subjected to every indignity imaginable. Even then we might not be allowed to fly.

    Did I mention that we are also paying for the illegal barbarian scum?

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10418877/TSA-reveals-illegal-migrants-flying-without-proper-ID-use-ARREST-WARRANT-identification.html

  2. Except the same think in Western Europe, Germany, Austria, Italy, France and on and on , same barbaric policy all over just sickening..
