We're ruled by a cosy elite who all go to the same dinner parties, says former No10 policy guru chief

David Cameron’s former chief strategist has launched a stinging attack on the ‘insular ruling class’ threatening Britain’s democracy.

Steve Hilton said too many of those at the heart of government go to the same dinner parties and send their children to the same schools.

He said the UK’s political system is now in ‘crisis’ because the same type of people stay in charge whatever the outcome of the elections.

In what will be seen as a criticism of the ‘chumocracy’ of his former boss, Mr Hilton warned: ‘Our democracies are increasingly captured by a ruling class that seeks to perpetuate its privileges.

Evidence for Informed Trading on the Attacks of September 11

Just after September 11th 2001, many governments began investigations into possible insider trading related to the terrorist attacks of that day. Such investigations were initiated by the governments of Belgium, Cyprus, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Monte Carlo, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United States, and others. Although the investigators were clearly concerned about insider trading, and considerable evidence did exist, none of the investigations resulted in a single indictment. That’s because the people identified as having been involved in the suspicious trades were seen as unlikely to have been associated with those alleged to have committed the 9/11 crimes.

6 Crazy Things Israel Has Done to Maintain Racial Purity

Israel insists on being the historic homeland for the world's Jews, something few would disagree with. But it also insists on being a Jewish-majority country, at all costs. In order to maintain its Jewish majority, it must demonize non-Jews, particularly Muslims and Christian Arabs, as “demographic threats."

Here are five crazy things the Israeli government or the Israeli people have done to maintain this racial makeup.

US Attempted Color Revolution in Macedonia: Victoria Nuland's Dirty Hands Involved

Obama Gave Up on Ukraine, Press Simply Ignored It

On Tuesday, May 12th, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was asked at a press conference in Sochi Russia, to respond to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s recent statements promising renewed war against Donbass, which were made first on April 30th, “The war will end when Ukraine regains Donbass and Crimea,” and which were repeated on May 11th, by his saying, “I have no doubt, we will free the [Donetsk] Airport, because it is our land.” In other words, Poroshenko had repeatedly made clear that he plans a third invasion of Donbass, and, ultimately, also to invade and retake Crimea. (The Western press, however, had not reported any of these threats that were being made by Poroshenko.)

TLC's Submissive Wives' Guide to Marriage will be the best show ever

"Enter the rarely explored world of submissive wives, where fulfilling one’s husband’s every need is a part of everyday life, with the belief that it only serves to strengthen the marriage. For these women, allowing their husbands to be leaders of the household proves their own trust in them and in God. The hour long special Submissive Wives’ Guide To Marriage chronicles the lives of three married couples, two living in a submissive marriage, and one looking to adapt to this lifestyle to save their marriage."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Claire saw this show and thought it was great. I missed it, and from the title was initially put off. While I have long ago severed any support for feminism following the constant male-bashing always-cry-rape, I see marriage as a partnership. However on reading the reviews of this show (and I will catch the repeat) I have come to understand that the show did not encourage all wives to be submissive, but showcased women who chose a 1950s style marital model and liked it.

I am okay with their making that choice if that is what works. One of my pet peeves with 90s feminism isn't that they wanted women to have a choice to have a career instead of being a house wife, but that all women should want a career, want to leave the house, (in extreme cases, want to be lesbians), and looked on women who wanted to stay home with their children as clearly inferior.

In hindsight, the hijacked latter day gender-feminism (as opposed to the earlier equity-feminism, which we could all agree with) took away one enforced role model for women only to replace it with another. In practical terms, gender-feminism doubled the work force, which doubled the government's taxing opportunities, and made men disposable to send off to wars. In hindsight, it was a repeat of the "Rosie the Riveter" propaganda of WW2.

In the end, it comes down to choice. For women who choose to have a career, go for it! But the same should apply to women who want to be stay-at-home mothers. And I note that the feminists have slammed this show, and are all over social media claiming that women who want to stay at home and raise their children are (direct quote) "worthless leaches."

No, they aren't. Such women contribute to the world in a way the feminists do not approve of, and that is what the feminists are upset about; losing control. No longer being seen as the trend setters.

From an economics point of view, a reversal of the feminist trend makes sense. With jobs in such short supply, a return to the single-job household makes a great deal of sense.

"Ban 'Em All!!" Do-Gooder proposes Ban On All Harley's In Wake Of Motorcycle Gang Shootout

Ladies and Gentlemen, today we wish to reflect on the horrible incident in Waco Texas this last weekend, the murder of nine and the injury of eighteen more. In retrospect we can see a single common denominator of this vicious act of wanton murder. I'm speaking of course of the Harley Davidson motor cycle. Many weapons were used at Waco, but every one of those criminals rode a Harley. The Harley Davidson motorcycle therefore is the problem. If we think back on every single act of motorcycle gang violence in our country for over a century, we see that in every incident the perpetrators rode a Harley Davidson motorcycle. To any thinking person the solution is simple, ban Harley Davidson motorcycles

Bombardier plant's defective "Made in Mexico" parts delay final streetcar assembly and delivery to Canadian customers

TTC issues with Bombardier streetcars also apply to Metrolinx order

The problem with the Metrolinx cars is the same as that described this week by frustrated TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) CEO Andy Byford , who said he wants riders to understand why he can’t put more of the air-conditioned, fully accessible streetcars into service.

The first of the 204 new streetcars — price tag: $1.2 billion — were so flawed that the TTC simply couldn’t risk putting them into service because they would almost certainly break down on Toronto streets, he said.

Parts produced in Mexico were so poorly made that they couldn’t be properly assembled in Bombardier’s Thunder Bay plant, where attempts to rivet badly cut walls and under-frames were rejected by the TTC.

Byford also cited defective laminate, loose screws and faulty electrical connectors among the issues on the new TTC vehicles.

AE911Truth - "Overwhelming Majority of AIA Delegates Make the Political Decision and Vote Down Resolution 15-6"

“We are a professional – not a political – organization. But in this case, if we vote “no” on this resolution, we are making a political decision, not a professional one. Thank you very much.” – Daniel Barnum, FAIA

Those were the closing remarks from the lead sponsor of AIA Resolution 15-6, Daniel Barnum, FAIA. Seconds later, the AIA delegates cast their votes. The unfortunate outcome was that an overwhelming majority made the political decision. Resolution 15-6, which called upon the AIA to support a new WTC 7 investigation, was voted down 3,892 to 160, garnering 4% of the delegates’ votes. . .

. . . However, that does not signal to us that we should give up on reaching out to the AIA membership. We are pleased to have gained the signatures of another 150 AIA members, seven of whom are fellows of the Institute. We will continue and intensify our outreach efforts with ever more creative and incisive strategies.

Science and Reason Takes Back Seat to 9/11 Official Story In Historic AIA Resolution Vote

By Bernie Suarez

In a historic vote delegates of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) overwhelmingly voted down Resolution 15-6 which called for AIA to support a new investigation of the destruction of World Trade Center building 7 on September 11th 2001. The resolution, which was introduced by AIA member Dan Barnum FAIA, was voted down overwhelmingly by a vote of 3892 - 160 meaning 96% of the delegates voted to ignore the science, the facts, and the evidence which is today common knowledge about the destruction of WTC 7!

That's right. 96% of voting AIA delegates voted with intentions and goals outside the realm of science and reason...

And since close to 3 billion of those people survive on less than 2 dollars a day, your share of that debt is going to be much larger than that. If we took everything that the global economy produced this year and everything that the global economy produced next year and used it to pay all of this debt, it still would not be enough.

SOPA, anyone? Entertainment Lobby Uses Hearing on Domain Names to Revive Awful Censorship Idea

Amidst a discussion of new top-level domain names (such as “.sucks”), a lawyer representing the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), and other groups told the House Judiciary Committee’s Internet subcommittee that ICANN should force the companies that register domain names to suspend domains based on accusations of copyright infringement.

If this sounds familiar, that’s probably because it’s exactly the sort of system that the disastrous SOPA bill would have created—one where entire websites can be forced to go dark, without a day in court, because some material on the site is accused of infringing a copyright.

Apple Watch Vulnerability Lets Thieves Use Apple Pay Without Your PIN

No, your Apple Watch isn't totally hacker-proof, despite what some have claimed.

The basic idea behind its security is that the Watch can detect when it is removed from a wrist, and automatically requires a passcode to be entered if removed (if one is set up, which is a requirement for using Apple Pay). So we set out to trick the sensor into thinking it's still on a wrist while removing it. Taking that a step further, we wanted to see if we could use this "exploit" to bring up Apple Pay and make purchases with someone else's card.

We'll cut right to the chase—we got it to work without much effort. Here's how we did it, and what you can do to protect yourself if someone uses this technique on you.

The UK government has quietly passed new legislation that exempts GCHQ, police, and other intelligence officers from prosecution for hacking into computers and mobile phones.

According to Privacy International, "It appears no regulators, commissioners responsible for overseeing the intelligence agencies, the Information Commissioner's Office, industry, NGOs or the public were notified or consulted about the proposed legislative changes...

Is Diabetes the Easiest Incurable Disease to Cure?

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but an incurable disease is being cured. I went over to my local library last fall, to do some research on diabetes. It was an interesting experience. I picked about 10 books off the shelf, and took them to a study table. You can see a list in the references at the bottom.

One of the books, one in ten, claimed to cure diabetes. The others provided ‘treatments’ and guidelines on ‘how to live with your diabetes’, assuming, even stating clearly in most cases, that “diabetes cannot be cured”. The truth is a bit longer sentence: “”Diabetes cannot be cured by medicines”.

There are two ‘types’ of diabetes. Type 1 Diabetes (in theory) exists when your body loses ALL of the islet cells in the pancreas, thus, according to the Theory of Cures, it is a disability, not a disease. Disabilities cannot be cured. But if the theory is wrong, if our understanding of type 1 diabetes is wrong, it might be curable. Or maybe it’s curable some of the time?

Beyond The Fear Of Living Without Money

Living without money is an issue that many are concerned about but not many people are talking about solutions. Many of us already live in either poverty or near poverty levels. Is the answer found in government assistance and the material world or is it found in going beyond this ego-centered, materialistic world and finding a new way of living?

The world’s economy is based on economics, which is backed by the banking system that is designed to create debt. For example, imagine that I am your local conglomerate bank and there was only $100 in existence. If I lent you that $100 and expected you to pay me back $110, how can you possibly do this when there is only $100 in existence? Where are you going to come up with that $10 extra dollars that never existed? This is the global Ponzi scheme that banksters have been playing since the inception of currency.

‘Bigger role’ for US in Minsk II accords: Are you sure, Ms. Nuland?

One year into the Ukrainian crisis, Washington reveals a desire to jump on the bandwagon of the Minsk peace accords – brokered by France and Germany. Not bad news, after all, but when it comes from Victoria Nuland...

News that US Secretary of State John Kerry flew to Sochi to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and President Putin came as only a small surprise this week. In the wake of the most impressive Victory Day celebration ever across Russia, most experts agreed that the Russia people’s vigilance held a fairly massive sway over world public opinion afterwards. Western media was not oblivious to this either.

However much of a positive this trend may be, news that the Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland and sidekick Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt are on the loose again tends to quell hopes of peace.
