David Miliband dragged into Hillary Clinton email scandal after it emerges confidential British intelligence was sent to presidential hopeful's private account

David Miliband was dragged into the Hillary Clinton email scandal today, after it emerged that confidential information which he had provided ended up in her unsecured private account.

Mrs Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner for the 2016 presidential election, has come under fire over revelations she had a secret email account as Secretary of State.

She has repeatedly insisted that she did not send or receive any classified information on her private account.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given that the office of Secretary of State involves large amounts of classified data, if Hillary insists she did not use her private server to handle that classified data and never used a US Government server ... then what server WAS she using for classified information?!?

That only one of the huge holes in Hillary's lies!

Louise Mensch blames Corbyn supporters for anti-Semitism - turns out it's her own offensive search history

Former Conservative MP Louise Mensch has faced widespread ridicule after accusing Jeremy Corbyn supporters of anti-Semitism - over Twitter searches that turned out be her own.

Ms Mensch posted a series of screenshots showing what she said were autocompleted twitter searches alongside the name of Mr Corbyn’s fellow Labour leadership contender, Liz Kendall.

The supposedly autocompleted phrases alongside the @lizforleader handle included “nazi” and “Zionist”, which Mensch implied was the work to Corbyn’s supporters.

witter's autocomplete on Liz Kendall MP. This is the sewer that is Jeremy Corbyn's support. pic.twitter.com/H7gAQWkfGa
— Louise Mensch (@LouiseMensch) August 21, 2015

However, twitter users were quick to point out that Twitter doesn’t quite work that way and that, in fact, Mensch must have searched the phrases herself.

British Government: Benjamin Netanyahu immune from arrest

As the petition for the arrest of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu reaches in excess of 75,000 signatures, the British Government has issued an official statement which clears the war criminal of any wrong doing, despite tens of thousands of UK citizens calling for his arrest for the massacre of more than 2000 civilians in 2014.

Crippling court costs force poverty-stricken people to 'plead guilty to crimes they didn't commit'

Poverty-stricken people are being encouraged to plead guilty to crimes they did not commit out of fear they will face crippling costs imposed by new financial penalties, leading lawyers, magistrates and campaigners have warned.

Legal experts have called for an urgent review of the criminal courts charge, which has been compared to “18th-century” forms of justice after being implemented earlier this year.

The new levy was introduced by the former Justice Secretary, Chris Grayling, to make criminals pay for the upkeep of the courts. Because the charge can be up to 10 times higher if someone is found guilty after pleading innocence, critics say it is undermining the justice system by encouraging impoverished defendants to plead guilty even if they have done nothing wrong.

Examining the myths, lies and deception of NHS privatization

These discourses are related and the mainstream views are used to justify and in the hands of some seek to even deny the existence of the expanding role of capitalist businesses, motivated fundamentally by profits, who want the production and distribution of healthcare to be determined by them. While economists advocating privatization argue that markets are more effective at compelling cost efficiency than the government can, critics have responded by pointing to the lack of evidence that markets are more efficient in healthcare. In particular, there are many properties of health services that make it unique compared to commodities that capitalists normally produce.

Jeremy Corbyn will apologize for illegal Iraq War if elected leader

Labour Party leadership frontrunner Jeremy Corbyn says he will issue an apology for the 2003 invasion of Iraq if he is elected.

Corbyn, who posed staunch opposition to the war when Tony Blair led the party, told the Guardian the invasion had been undertaken “on the basis of deception” and planned to issue a formal apology on behalf of the party if he is elected.

BBC’s Nick Robinson condemns abuse during Scottish independence referendum

BBC Political Editor Nick Robinson condemned last year’s street protests against his Scottish independence referendum coverage.

He said British society should not accept “intimidation and bullying” of journalists because of political differences.

Robinson, who will soon leave BBC News to join Radio 4’s Today program, was accused of having a pro-union bias during his coverage of the Scottish independence referendum last September.

Thousands of pro-independence Scots rallied outside the BBC’s Glasgow headquarters to demand Robinson’s resignation last year after the journalist clashed with former first minister Alex Salmond during a press conference over the possible relocation of Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS).

Corbyn likened US troops to IS: Leadership frontrunner compared fanatics' barbarity to Americans in Iraq during TV interview

Jeremy Corbyn compared Islamic State brutality to US military action in Iraq in a TV interview, it emerged yesterday.

The Labour leadership frontrunner called for 'acceptance and understanding' of IS supporters while speaking on Russia Today, the Kremlin-backed broadcaster, in June last year.

He only condemned 'some' of the brutal regime's actions in Iraq, saying: 'Yes they are brutal, yes some of what they have done is quite appalling, likewise what American forces did in Fallujah and other places is quite appalling.'

Let’s Bomb Libya Again

The British prime minister, David Cameron, places great emphasis on how he is regarded by the public at home and internationally. His personal promotion machine is extensive and highly-paid and his staff feed the media diligently with what they imagine to be positive slants on his character and actions (and with carefully selected photographs of his pretty wife). They provide advance copies of his speeches to favoured journalists with the annoying consequence that news broadcasts rarely report what the prime minister has just said on a topic. They are futuristic and use the infuriating phrase “the prime minister will say today that” he will propose something or other.

Jeremy Corbyn WILL apologise on behalf of Labour for Iraq War if he wins leadership contest

Jeremy Corbyn will apologise on behalf of Labour for the Iraq War if he wins the leadership next month.

The left-wing frontrunner said Labour must finally say sorry for the “deception” which took Britain to war in 2003.

And he hinted he may not support extending British military action against Islamic State to Syria in a Parliamentary vote expected next month.

"It is past time that Labour apologised to the British people for taking them into the Iraq war on the basis of deception - and to the Iraqi people for the suffering we have helped cause," Mr Corbyn said in a statement to the Guardian last night.

"Under our Labour, we will make this apology."

Joint British-French Border Force to be Deployed to Calais to Confront Migrant Crisis

British police, including UK Border Force officers, will be deployed to France after Home Secretary Theresa May signed a belated agreement with the French government on the Calais migrant crisis.

The agreement will establish a joint control and command centre, headed up by senior British and French officers, and signals a step up in British involvement in Calais. The unusual feature of the Euro Tunnel project, which effectively pushed the British border forward onto the continent for the first time since the 13th century, has caused friction between the two countries as it has left the French government patrolling the border almost unassisted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There would not be a migrant crisis is the western nations hadn't been mucking about in the Middle East and Africa!

Flu jab drive to address last year's 'failure'

Ministers are urging people not to be put off by failures of the flu vaccine last year.

They say those who qualify for a free jab, or spray for children, should take up the offer this winter as it offers the most effective cover against flu.

Last winter it emerged that the seasonal flu vaccine used offered barely any cover against the main strain of flu encountered in the UK.

Straight shooting from the UK

The Bow Group, ‘the United Kingdom’s oldest conservative think tank’, is as ‘Establishment’ an institution as one could hope to find. Its board includes prominent former Conservative cabinet ministers such as Norman Tebbit and Geoffrey Howe as well as right-wing academics like philosopher Roger Scruton. I was intrigued, therefore, to hear its chairman, Ben Harris-Quinney, announce last week that, ‘the theory of neo-liberal interventionism is bankrupt.’

The context of Harris-Quinney’s remarks was the publication of a new Bow Group report entitled ‘The Sanctions on Russia’.

The Labour Party Turns on the Israel Lobby

It would be fair to say the massacre of around 100 Palestinian villagers by Jewish Stern Gang and Irgun terrorists in the village of Deir Yassin nearly 70 years ago is not well remembered today.
Like many of the horrific events surrounding the creation of the state of Israel, the massacre on April 9, 1948 has been quietly dropped down the memory hole. It was a horrific tale of British betrayal and Jewish ruthlessness, and is still too embarrassing for both Jewish elites and the British government.

American Journalist Kicked Out Of UK For Investigating VIP Child Abuse and Edward Heath

Iraq Chilcot Inquiry: Complete Whitewash of the “Tony Blair Regime”?

Bereaved UK families who lost sons and daughters in the illegal invasion of Iraq have now threatened legal action against Sir John Chilcot who headed the near two year long, £10m Iraq Inquiry (30th July 2009 – 2nd February 2011) if a date for release of Inquiry findings is not announced publicly within two weeks. Further, suspicions over the reason for the approaching five years near silence from Sir John are raised by a detailed investigation by journalist Andrew Pierce.

The Kingmaker

Paul Eisen, until a week ago anonymous as far as most Brits were concerned, is now a kingmaker. The UK Jewish Lobby is convinced, for some reason, that the nature of Eisen’s relationship with Labour’s leading candidate Jeremy Corbyn will determine the future of this country.

As we witness the most important political debate in Britain for generations being hijacked by the Zionist media and ‘Jewish sensitivities’, the time is ripe to ask: who is Paul Eisen?

Eisen has been described by the Jewish press and its acolytes as an ‘anti Semite’ and a ‘holocaust denier’, but peculiarly, no one mentions that Eisen is actually a Jew who sometimes even speaks ‘as a Jew’.

What the Latest Currency ‘War’ is All About

When the US embarks on perennial quantitative easing, that’s OK. When the EU does QE as well, that’s OK. But when the Bank of China decides it’s in the best interest of the nation to let the yuan go down a bit instead of infinitely up, that’s Armageddon.

An internationalized yuan established as a global reserve currency implies a "market-determined" exchange rate policy.

It took the Bank of China to devaluate the yuan on two consecutive days — moving within the 2 percent band that it’s allowed to — for the proverbial global financial banshees to go completely bonkers.

Forget the hysteria. The heart of the matter is that Beijing has stepped on the gas in a quite complex long game; to liberalize the yuan exchange rate; allow it to free float against the US dollar; and establish the yuan as a global reserve currency.

The Social Costs of Capitalism

The public subsidies provided to miners, loggers, and ranchers are as extravagant and as harmful to the public interest as the subsidies that the Federal Reserve and Treasury provide to the "banks too big to fail."

Few, if any, corporations absorb the full cost of their operations. Corporations shove many of their costs onto the environment, the public sector, and distant third parties.

Economists call these costs “external costs” or “social costs.” The mine made its profits by creating pollutants, the cost of which is borne by those who had no share in the profits.

British petition calls for Netanyahu to be arrested for war crimes

The petition, filed on the U.K. parliament petition website, was apparently inspired by an upcoming visit to London by Netanyahu for meetings with the government.

Thousands of U.K. residents have signed a petitiondemanding the arrest of Israeli Prime MinisterBenjamin Netanyahu for his war crimes against Gaza during last summer’s brutal offensive.

Given the large scale of support and attention, the U.K. government may be forced to publicly respond in the near future.

Mandelson's secret 'stop Corbyn' plot: Grandee told Burnham, Cooper and Kendall to all QUIT the Labour leadership race

Lord Mandelson attempted to halt the Labour leadership contest by persuading the other three candidates to quit in order to stop Jeremy Corbyn, it was claimed last night.

The former business secretary is said to have approached Andy Burnham, Yvette Cooper and Liz Kendall privately last week to argue that the party would halt the contest if they all pulled out.

But the 61-year-old Labour grandee dropped the plan after officials warned him the withdrawal of the three mainstream rivals would hand immediate victory to Left-wing favourite Mr Corbyn.

‘Body-in-a-bag’ MI6 spy: Was he killed by secret service after uncovering money laundering?

Fresh revelations relating to his death surfaced Saturday, after a source told the Daily Mail that Scotland Yard officials believe an agent from another secret service broke into his apartment to conceal the evidence.

The new claim alleges that forensic equipment laid down in the flat after Williams’ body was discovered was moved while the building remained under the surveillance of armed police.

Special footplates, which enable detectives to make their way across a crime scene without causing contamination, were repositioned just over a day into the investigation.

After discovering this fact, Scotland Yard officials concluded the building’s walls had been scaled and Williams’ flat had been broken into via the skylight.

The number of those who are living with the condition has soared by 59.8pc since 2005, meaning that more than 3.3 million people now have it.

Diabetes UK, the charity that uncovered the official figures, says the data showed the public health situation was spiralling "out of control".

The increase means that more than 5pc of the UK population now has the condition.

Why Israel Is So Concerned About Jeremy Corbyn

Disinformation and propaganda can take the form of omission just as much as straight forward lies and deception. There is no doubt that that all political parties, one way or another, in the past have been staunch supporters of Israel’s illegal actions over Palestine and its people, more particularly, in the offensive of Gaza starting July 2014. British government complicity that enables impunity of Israeli war criminals also profits from the death, destruction and apartheid regime imposed.

Doughnuts and pizzas on the NHS: £116million of gluten-free junk food was handed out in prescriptions in the past year

The NHS is handing out tens of thousands of prescriptions every year for custard creams, doughnuts and pizzas.

Other calorie-rich treats issued to patients on special diets include Italian-style biscotti, cake bars and muffin mixes.

The Health Service spent almost £116million last year on gluten-free products and other foods – twice as much as a decade ago.

The extraordinary figure does not cover manufacturers’ sky-high handling fees, which can reach £40 a time.

NHS rules for prescribing food vary by area, but in general only coeliac disease patients can get gluten-free products.

The huge sums being spent on food come amid an obesity crisis and at a time when the health budget is hugely stretched.

‘Deal or war’: Is doomed dollar really behind Obama’s Iran warning?

This is not just about Iran. It is about other major world economies moving away from holding the US dollar as a means of doing business.

In his drastic prediction of war, one might assume that Obama is referring to Israel launching a preemptive military strike on Iran with the backing of US Republicans. Or that he is insinuating that Iran will walk from self-imposed restraints on its nuclear program to build a bomb, thus triggering a war.

But what could really be behind Obama’s dire warning of “deal or war” is another scenario – the collapse of the US dollar, and with that the implosion of the US economy.

That scenario was hinted at this week by US Secretary of State John Kerry. Speaking in New York on August 11, Kerry made the candid admission that failure to seal the nuclear deal could result in the US dollar losing its status as the top international reserve currency.

REVEALED: The very cosy friendship between Iraq inquiry chief and Tony Blair - who knighted him after private meeting in London club

When Tony Blair first appeared before the Iraq inquiry five years ago, the chairman Sir John Chilcot treated him with almost painful deference.

Chilcot, a crumpled figure whose opening remarks lasted seven minutes, never laid a glove on Blair, even though the former prime minister gave evidence for more than six hours.

What few people know is that the bumbling Chilcot, a retired career civil servant, could, in fact, have greeted Blair as an old friend.

British Jewish MP blasts would-be Labor Party head for ‘anti-Semitic’ ties

A Jewish politician from Britain’s Labor Party said the views of Jeremy Corbyn, the frontrunner to head the party, are cause for “serious concern.”

Ivan Lewis, the shadow, or minority, party cabinet minister who is also a former chief executive of the Manchester Jewish Federation, urged his party not to vote for Corbyn.

“Some of [Corbyn’s] stated political views are a cause for serious concern,” Lewis said in letter to his local party members on Friday, according to the Guardian. “At the very least he has shown very poor judgment in expressing support for and failing to speak out against people who have engaged not in legitimate criticism of Israeli governments but in antisemitic rhetoric.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is actually a good thing. The people of nations around the globe are starting to wake up to the fact that their governments have been subverted or are being subverted by Israel. Netanyahu's over-the-top determination to have his whores in the US Congress derail the Iran P5+1 deal have made it clear to Americans that Washington DC is a puppet ruler for a foreign power, and that is not something Americans take kindly to, as the British may recall from some 230 years ago!

Jeremy Corbyn defends banned vicar who suggested Israel was behind 9/11

Jeremy Corbyn, the favourite for the Labour leadership, wrote a letter of support for a vicar who was banned from social media and commenting on Middle East issues after he posted a link to an article blaming Israel for the 9/11 terror attacks.

The MP for Islington North claims Reverend Stephen Sizer, who used Facebook to promote the article entitled “9/11 Israel did it” was ‘under attack’ by a pro-Israeli smear campaign.

According to Mail Online, Corbyn wrote to the Church, suggesting Sizer had been victimised for “speaking out against Zionism”. He added: “Reverend Stephen Sizer seems to have come under attack by certain individuals intent on discrediting the excellent work that Stephen does in highlighting the injustices of the Palestinian Israeli situation.”

Labour is walking off cliff with its eyes shut, says Blair: He warns voters not to pick Corbyn 'even if you hate me' as 600,000 take part in leadership poll

Simon Danczuk was the latest MP to call for the contest to be stopped, claiming a quarter of members who have joined in his Rochdale constituency should be struck off. He told LBC Radio that if Mr Corbyn won, the party would face a civil war with many working to oust him ‘from day one, if not before’. Backbench MP Graham Stringer said the level of infiltration meant the election ‘has no credibility’.

Mr Blair spoke out last month to tell supporters whose hearts were with Mr Corbyn to ‘get a transplant’.

Last night he said: ‘The Labour Party is in danger more mortal today than at any point in the over 100 years of its existence. The leadership election has turned into something far more significant than who is the next leader. It is now about whether Labour remains a party of government.’

The brothers who funded Blair, Israeli settlements and Islamophobia

Tony Blair is again in the headlines, this time after Labour leadership frontrunner Jeremy Corbyn publicly voiced the opinion of millions of British citizens: that the former prime minister should stand trial on charges of war crimes if the evidence suggests that he broke international law during the 2003 invasion and occupation of Iraq.

Blair's conduct since leaving office has received less scrutiny, however. Our investigations show that while Blair was serving as the special Middle East peace envoy of the Quartet, representing the UN, Russia, US and EU, the American fundraising arm of the Tony Blair Faith Foundation accepted money from a family that finances illegal Israeli settlements via the earnings of a convicted felon.
