UK: Muslim migrant rapist blames his rape on “cultural differences” and “not understanding British law”

A rapist has been locked-up for seven years after his victim recorded the sickening attack on her mobile phone.

Sarbast Fatah had befriended the woman in the days before the sexual assault and invited her back to his Gateshead flat for drinks in March this year.

But, Newcastle Crown Court was told, when she got there, the 24-year-old pinned her down and twice attacked her.

However, unbeknown to Fatah, the terrified victim had managed to record some of the harrowing ordeal and could be heard on the footage shouting ‘No, I don’t want to”, prosecutors said.

ALERT: Trump Issues Urgent Warning to America, Please Listen

President Donald Trump has made a name for himself as someone who is not afraid to voice uncomfortable truths. Recently, Mr. Trump took on Great Britain and its problem with crime.

On his Facebook page, President Trump wrote, “Just out report: ‘United Kingdom crime rises 13% annually amid spread of Radical Islamic terror.’ Not good, we must keep America safe!”

As with everything President Trump says, the mainstream media was quick to denounce him, and claim that his statement is factually wrong.

The media has consistently claimed that President Trump and Republicans are wrong and “Islamophobic” for saying that certain European cities have “No-Go Zones” where all non-Muslims are encouraged to avoid.

Just this week, Sweden’s centrist Moderate Party proposed sending in the Swedish Army into several high-crime areas in Stockholm’s suburbs.

The #Resistance found its new power couple!

Former President George W. Bush discovered this week that all he had to do to make the media finally like him was take a rhetorical swing at Donald Trump.

And it didn’t hurt that he teamed up with Barack Obama to do it. The result was a media swoon. The New York Times crooned: “Without Saying ‘Trump,’ Bush and Obama Deliver Implicit Rebukes.”

Trump’s Fed Chair Problem (How Do We Awaken Dorothy From Her Monetary Oz?)

Yellen would be closer to dovish Evans while Taylor would be closer to Rubebusch.

President Trump has a problem. And it is who to select as The Federal Reserve Chair by November 3rd. Of course, he can always keep mega-dove Janet Yellen. Or he choose someone new like National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn, Fed Board Governor Jerome Powell, former Fed Governor Kevin Warsh or Stanford University economist John Taylor.

Macbeth Does the Stations of the Cross

Shakespeare’s deepest message was one of hope.

Considered the darkest of all of Shakespeare’s plays, it is nonetheless replete with some of the most magnificent poetry and psychological insight penned by our Bard. It is a study in the genesis and evolution of evil: vaulting ambition and the slippery slope that leads to further acts of murder until its violent end, this play that begins and ends and is soaked throughout in blood.

British Musician Takes On Vaccine Issues With A Musical Video

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Isn’t there something dramatically and incongruously wrong about such a deliberate refusal to stop medical child abuse perpetrated upon infants, toddlers and teens by federal, state and local health agencies with apparent greased lightning support of advertising and lobbying from Big Pharma to extol vaccines as safe and effective?

Nevertheless, one songwriter, Daz Nez, has stepped up to the plate and hit a home run with his song “Word to the Wise” he co-titled to “Always Reject Vaccines” with a video version of it...

Is Liberalism a Dying Faith? Pat Buchanan

James Burnham called it (Liberalism) in his 1964 “Suicide of the West” — the ideology of Western suicide.

Asked to name the defining attributes of the America we wish to become, many liberals would answer that we must realize our manifest destiny since 1776, by becoming more equal, more diverse and more democratic — and the model for mankind’s future.

MI5 boss Andrew Parker: UK terror threat evolving at scale never seen before

The UK is facing a "multidimensional threat" that is rapidly evolving "at a scale and pace we've not seen before", the director general of MI5 has warned.

Andrew Parker said the security service is operating at an unprecedented level and has seen "a dramatic upshift in threats this year".

"It's at the highest tempo I've seen in my 34-year career," he said. "Today there is more terrorist activity, coming at us more quickly, and it can be harder to detect.

"We're now running well over 500 live operations involving around 3,000 individuals known to be currently involved in extremist activity in some way.

"As well as those we are looking at today, risk can also come from returnees from Syria and Iraq and also the growing pool of over 20,000 individuals we've looked at in the past in our terrorism investigations

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Andrew Parker, a word, please, and a little logic.

The people uprooted from Iraq and Syria have every reason to be angry at the Anglo/US wars against their countries which caused them to have to flee, sometimes with nothing more than the clothes on their backs, to impose regime change, and insure that their oil was only sold in US dollars. The US and the Brits made that happen in Iraq, not so much in Syria yet; however, Israel is working hard to get another war going there, which the US military will most probably join.

This unrestricted, unrestrained immigration has caused massive woes for you, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Denmark and France. So here's about doing immigration intelligently; only let in the best of the best of the best, meaning that these are people who already are proficient in English; want to assimilate; have meaningful job skills in the 21st century, and will behave in a peaceful and civlised manner.

It's called vetting, Andrew.

This is no longer the 19th century, the century of the Emma Lazarus poem, which includes the phrases,

"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

The US, UK, and Europe don't have the money or luxury or infrastructure to allow people to immigrate if they don't want to assimilate; don't want to learn the language; and do not want to be a part of their respective nations' economic growth. Just being a refugee cannot be enough grounds to let people immigrate when they have nothing to offer; all countries need to demand the best of the best of the best for the future of their countries.

And as to eliminating the refugee issues?!? Stop the wars; start negotiating in good faith for what you want, and back off from regime change (yes, I know that once THAT one gets started it can be addictive!)

Yes, British F-35 engines must be sent to Turkey for overhaul

'Steep rise' in self-harm among teenage girls

Since 2001, girls have had much higher rates of self-harm than boys - 37.4 per 10,000 compared with 12.3 in boys.

While self-harm rates stayed constant among 10- to 12-year-olds and 17- to 19-year-olds, there was a 68% increase among 13- to 16-year-olds over the three-year period studied.

This took the rate in girls from 45.9 per 10,000 in 2011 to 77 per 10,000 in 2014.

The researchers, from the University of Manchester, looked at data for nearly 17,000 patients from more than 600 GP practices.

MI5 chief says ‘diverse’ Islamist threat to UK growing at ‘previously unseen scale & pace’

Britain’s top domestic intelligence officer has warned that Britain is under unprecedented threat from Islamist terrorists, and says that 20 plots have been foiled in the past four years, while future successful attacks are inevitable.

“That threat is multi-dimensional, evolving rapidly and operating at a scale and pace we’ve not seen before,” Andrew Parker, the director general of MI5, said during a rare public speech to journalists in London. “It’s at the highest tempo I have seen in my 34-year career. Today there is more terrorist activity, coming at us more quickly, and it can be harder to detect.”

Headmaster apologizes for gender-neutral toilets that made pupils ‘uncomfortable’

A headmaster at one of Britain’s top schools has been forced to apologize for introducing gender-neutral toilets. Earlier in the year he was criticized for allowing boys to wear skirts as part of their school uniform.

Adam Pettit oversaw the conversion of toilets at Highgate School in North London over the summer holidays, saying it would help students who are “gender fluid or don’t wish to identify themselves with a gender.”

He claimed at the time young people were “pleasingly accepting of and sympathetic to those whose lives are made miserable by the inability of institutions to adapt to their gender-fluidity or their gender-neutrality.”

According to the Daily Mail, however, the move was condemned by parents and pupils at the £20,370-a-year co-educational private day school.

The leader of the United Kingdom's Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, has called for an inquiry into the activities of an Israeli embassy officer who was caught on tape in an Al Jazeera investigation discussing a plot to "take down" British politicians.

In an open letter to Prime Minister Theresa May, Corbyn described the actions of Israeli embassy official Shai Masot as "improper interference in this country's democratic process".

Universal Basic Income, Or Basic Universal Alternative?

The Green Party of England and Wales have just concluded their autumn conference, held this year in the pleasant Yorkshire town of Harrogate. One of the meetings I particularly wanted to take part in was titled “Universal Basic Income. Its time has come”. The main speaker was Guy Standing, someone who has apparently been promoting Basic Income for about thirty years. Although this gives him cause to claim some proprietorial rights for the idea, the Greens’ version of the same thing, known to us as Citizens Income (CI), has been a cornerstone policy for about forty years.

BBC’s hissy fit over Brexit bias research PROVES it has something to hide

Let’s look at the evidence. I recently asked the Corporation for a list of every guest it invited to the Proms this summer. The answer was very revealing.

Bosses spent £19,020 entertaining dozens of luvvies and politicians.

And guess what? The vast majority of those treated to free drinks and a night at the Royal Albert Hall — courtesy of TV licence payers — were vocal defenders of the EU and prominent critics of Brexit.

They included Bank of England Governor Mark Carney, London Mayor Sadiq Khan, David Attenborough, Judi Dench, Tory politician Lord Patten, Financial Times editor Lionel Barber, Guardian ­editor Katharine Viner and ex-Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg.

Theresa May, Chancellor Philip ­Hammond and Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn — who all backed Remain — also accepted a free ticket and were hosted on separate nights in a private box by £450,000-a-year BBC director-general Lord Hall.

Whether there’s a second referendum before Brexit happens, I’m sure the Tory party will do their best not to allow that to happen, within five years there will be a government in power in Britain that will ask Europe for a chance for Britain to re-enter,” said the billionaire.

“And because there are so many young people who will be a little older by then, and so many older [people] who voted for Brexit will have died off, I think Britain will become a part of Europe again.”

Follow the money. The Eurogroup rules the Eurozone and its 19 member states. The first rule of Eurogroup is: ‘You don’t talk about Eurogroup!’

Part of the problem of criticizing the “pan-European project” is that you have multiple bodies which overlap. And you also have some nations which are part of one, but not another. Or which pay into one body, but abstain from another.

A clear analysis is needed of the most important part of the pan-European project: the Eurozone. The Eurozone is the most important because it controls the money in the world’s largest macro-economy.

Britain 'draws up battle plan for war with North Korea'

Britain is reportedly preparing for the possibility of war breaking out with North Korea as concerns rise that another provocative missile test could trigger a military response by the US.

North Korea is being closely watched amid fears it could launch another long-range missile test on Tuesday to mark the anniversary of the founding of its ruling party.

Bellicose rhetoric from Donald Trump has heightened tensions in the region in recent months, prompting British officials to draw up military plans for a response to a break out of hostilities, it was reported.

The possible move to deploy it ahead of schedule drew comparisons with the start of the Falklands War.

"In the Falklands we had to react to an event and HMS Illustrious was accelerated to respond," a Navy source told the Mail.

"This was a reaction to protect British territory, however. In this case [North Korea], the UK would be part of a united global coalition. We would see what support we could give."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note that none of this is actually sourced, and even the writers of this article wanted to distance themselves from responsibility for having written it, by embracing anonimity, and only identifying them as "Telegraph Reporters".

I frankly think, at this point, that this was simply a "trial balloon" on the part of the British Government, to see and gague British public reaction to such a move, if, in fact, such plans are being contemplated at this time.

Failed U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has attacked Brexit voters, claiming they fell for a “horrible lie” and voted against “modern Britain” because of small-town concerns.

The former first lady also blamed her electoral loss on the e-mail scandal, alleged Russian influence, and host of other factors in an interview with The Sunday Times to promote her new book.

Speaking about the European Union (EU) referendum’s relationship to the U.S. presidential election, she said: “Brexit should have been a bigger alarm than it was.”

Adding: “It was some of the same people working for Trump, advocating for him.

Victoria and Abdul – Re-Writing History to indoctrinate Todays Society

If I was writing this as a mere film review then I honestly couldn’t say much. I wasn’t as impressed as I had expected to be. Dame Judi Dench was wonderful and the filming and costumes are superb. But overall it was pretty boring, trite and shallow and about as historically accurate as Braveheart! A two star film at maximum. Most reviewers I read seem to agree.

But as a moderate dud it would not have left me so disturbed. What bothered me were a couple of things – the history and the current day indoctrination.

Fury as minister says Brexit was the working class 'throwing a tantrum' over immigration

Sir Alan Duncan, a staunch Europhile, said the Brexit campaign had "stirred up a lot of sentiment" about migration among people who do not usually vote.

During a speech at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, he said: "You could feel blue-collar, urban, traditional Labour opinion going viral for Leave.

"They were stirred up by an image of immigration which made them angry and made them throw a bit of a tantrum."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The people of Great Britain have every right to throw a tantrum when the government of Great Britain acts contrary to the best interests of the people of Great Britain.

PETER HITCHENS: If the Royal Navy's so 'vital', why have you wrecked it, Theresa?

HMS Ocean, the current fleet flagship, is so central to the Navy’s operations that the Prime Minister paid a visit to her in the Gulf last December, and spoke warmly to the ship’s company.

She said: ‘Here on HMS Ocean all of you are a vital part of Britain’s global mission… and you can be very proud of everything you are doing.’

All I can say to the Navy is hold on to your tin hats if the PM ever says anything nice to you again. She would have been more honest if she’d just said: ‘Goodbye!’

For, four months after this flag-brandishing oration, Mrs May’s Government put the ‘vital’ HMS Ocean up for sale.

The Brazilian Navy revealed in April that it is close to buying her for about £80 million.

In return for that – a ripple in Whitehall’s ocean of debt – we will lose the only ship we have which can mount a large-scale amphibious operation.

Army has new fight on its hands as it battles obesity

Major General James Swift, director of British Army Strategy, has warned that Britain’s obesity epidemic, caused by fast food and increasingly sedentary lifestyles, is contributing to “challenges with our manning”.

And problems are especially prevalent in northern working class areas, the Army’s main recruiting ground.

It comes as new NHS figures reveal that, in England, one in every four people is technically obese.

And when those above their ideal weight are counted, the picture is starker, with 64.8 per cent of people overweight.

“The end of the settlements and the end of the occupation have been international law and policy since 1967 almost, 1968 and onwards,” Williams said in an interview with Press TV on Wednesday.

Chicken safety scandal: 2 Sisters faces parliamentary inquiry after revelations

Three of the UK’s biggest supermarket chains have halted deliveries of chicken from a factory belonging to the country’s biggest poultry supplier after undercover filming revealed poor hygiene standards and food safety records being altered.

The 2 Sisters Food Group, which owns the site, is also facing a “short, sharp” parliamentary inquiry in the wake of evidence uncovered by a joint investigation by the Guardian and ITV News, which showed footage of workers altering the source and slaughter date of poultry being processed at the plant in West Bromwich. Experts said their actions could artificially stretch the commercial life of the meat and dupe consumers into buying chicken past its use-by date.

How to Bring Down the Elephant in the Room

First, a painful, but needed, clarification:

Basement crazies. Neocons. Zionists. Israel Lobbyists. Judaics. Jews. Somewhere along this list we bump into the proverbial “elephant in the room”. For some this bumping will happen earlier in the list, for others a little later down the list, but the list will be more or less the same for everybody. Proper etiquette, atleast in the West, would want to make us run away from this topic. I won’t. Why? Well, for one thing I am constantly accused of not discussing this elephant. Furthermore, I am afraid that the role this elephant is playing is particularly toxic right now. So let me try to deal with this beast, but first I have to begin with some caveats.

To make things even worse, the Russians are now also officially accusing the Americans of actively collaborating with ISIS:

Prince Philip 'unfaithful' to the Queen & Harry 'can’t actually fly a helicopter,’ claims Labour MP

Dent Coad, the recently-elected MP for Kensington, is reported to have made the comments at a fringe event ‘Reigning in the Monarchy’ at the party’s conference in Brighton.

“Harry can’t even fly a helicopter. He tried to pass the helicopter exam about four times and he couldn’t get through it at all so he always goes for the co-pilot,” she is quoted by the Sun as telling activists.

“So he just sits there going ‘vroom vroom.’”

She also said Harry and his brother William were “not very bright.”

“Just let them drift away, be playboys or whatever.”

Prince Philip, 96, was next on her hit list.

“The Queen might want to step back when her soulmate is gone. He’s been quite unfaithful for quite a few years,” she said.

“I am the royal family’s worst nightmare,” she added.

Flashback: Crippling PFI deals leave Britain £222bn in debt

Every man, woman and child in Britain is more than £3,400 in debt – without knowing it and without borrowing a single penny – thanks to the proliferation of controversial deals used to pay for infrastructure such as schools and hospitals.

The UK owes more than £222bn to banks and businesses as a result of Private Finance Initiatives (PFIs) – “buy now, pay later” agreements between the government and private companies on major projects.

...

Basically, a PFI is like a mortgage that the government takes out on behalf of the public. The average annual cost of meeting the terms of the UK’s PFI contracts will be more than £10bn over the next decade.

And the cost of servicing PFIs is growing. Last year, it rose by £5bn. It could rise further, with inflation. The upward creep is the price taxpayers’ pay for a financing system which allows private firms to profit from investing in infrastructure.

Trump's New UK Ambassador Wrongly Accuses Britain of Spending 'Minimum' on Its Military

Donald Trump’s new ambassador to Britain has incorrectly accused the Government of spending the “minimum” on defence.

Woody Johnson, a 70-year-old billionaire, suggested the UK’s funding was not enough to maintain its global standing.

“Whether you have the capability you need to be a powerful nation going forward, I think you are going to have to determine,” he told the Telegraph.

"We spend at least twice that much and we could still spend more. And we probably should spend more as well."

Man convicted of terror offence for refusing to give police phone and laptop password

The director of an advocacy group has been convicted of a terror offence after refusing to give police passwords to access his phone and laptop at Heathrow Airport.

Muhammad Rabbani vowed to appeal the first verdict of its kind after being handed a 12 month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £620 in costs at Westminster Magistrates' Court.

The director of Cage was stopped under the Terrorism Act on 20 November last year after returning home from a wedding in Doha, Qatar.

Officers demanded access to his phone and laptop under wide-ranging powers granted by Schedule 7 of the law.

It allows police and immigration officials to stop, search, question and detain anyone at British ports and airports to determine whether they were involved in the “commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism” – with or without reasonable suspicion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Like all the other erosions of our civil liberties this law will do nothing to stop real terrorists, who know not to use the internet for communications or to keep sensitive data on their phones and laptops.

The above hollowed-out coin can hold a micro SD card. Micro SD cards can hold huge amounts of data, topping out at 400 Gbytes; more than a third of a terabyte.

Real criminals and terrorists will use devices like this to protect their secrets, while law abiding citizens who simply desire their right to privacy are harassed and, as in this case, arrested.
