Trump: Year One – Justin Raimondo

Trump is neither monster nor savior, and that is surely evident on this first anniversary of the Trump victory

As the one year anniversary of Trump’s triumph approaches, the pathetic remnants of American liberalism still haven’t recognized its meaning, or reconciled themselves to their loss of State power. They dream of impeachment, or even an outright coup: their contempt for the Great American Middle – “the deplorables!” – defines their politics, which, by now, are almost entirely negative: anti-Trump, anti-Russia, anti-bourgeois.

Boris Johnson Gaffe Could Cost British Mother Another 5 Years In Iranian Jail

False claims made by Boris Johnson about Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, a British mother who has been detained by Iran, may result in her being handed an extra five years in prison. The UK foreign secretary incorrectly said she was in the country to “train journalists” when she was actually holidaying.

Johnson told a select committee last week: “When I look at what Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was doing, she was simply teaching people journalism, as I understand it.” Following his comments, the 37-year-old woman was taken to an unscheduled court hearing in Iran, where Johnson’s remarks were cited as proof of her guilt.

How Queen Elizabeth Invested in Firm That Targeted Mentally Ill

Files show Queen Elizabeth II, via the Duchy of Lancaster (a portfolio of land, property and assets held in trust for the British Sovereign), has held and continues to hold investments via funds in an array of businesses, including controversial retailer BrightHouse.

In October 2017, the company — the UK's biggest "rent-to-own" retailer — was slapped with a US$20 million fine for not acting as a "responsible lender."

?The firm supplies household goods, such as TVs and washing machines, at sky-high credit rates to consumers who cannot access typical borrowing facilities.

Britain's financial regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority, said the firm had overcharged customers and used aggressive sales techniques on customers with mental health problems and learning disabilities.

Foreign aid madness: Fury over 'cover-up' of how taxpayers' money is spent

Guidance dictating the way billions of pounds of taxpayers’ cash is sent abroad remain confidential despite them drawn up to demonstrate "value for money".

The farce has seen the Treasury and Department for International Development [DFID] devise a plan for the way cash is dished detailing governance, approval processes and financial management to ensure money is not frittered away.

But auditors revealed the powerful departments “do not plan to publish their guidance”, despite it containing “guiding principles” about how public money is used.

It means taxpayers remain unaware how their money props up hundreds of schemes funded by Official Development Assistance, which last year saw the UK hand out £13.3 billion.

Lisa Nandy claims Theresa May was 'warned of whips using sex abuse complaints to control misbehaving MPs'

Theresa May was warned three times that whips were using reports of shocking sexual abuse to control MPs, a backbench MP has claimed.

Labour’s Lisa Nandy made the allegation in a dramatic confrontation during Prime Minister’s Questions on Wednesday.

She claimed she “brought evidence” to Mrs May three years ago when she was Home Secretary but that no action was taken.

“Three years ago, I brought evidence to her in this House that whips had used information about sexual abuse to demand loyalty from MPs,” Ms Nandy told the Commons on Wednesday.

“I brought that information to her in this House and warned her at the time that unless real action was taken we risk repeating those injustices again.

“On three occasions, I asked her to act and on three occasions she did not."

Stumbling UK Economy Shows Importance of Gold

This week markets will be watching the UK with baited breath as the Monetary Policy Committee meets this Thursday to discuss a potential rate rise.

Expectations of a rise have increased to 80% in the last week. If the Bank of England does raise rates it will be for the first time in a decade. It is unlikely to be a dramatic increase though, probably a rise of 25 basis points to reverse the emergency rate cut which followed the Brexit vote.

Should the UK decide to raise rates this will likely boost confidence somewhat in the economy. However any increase in positivity regarding the UK will be short lived once markets realise it will take more than a small rate rise to get the country out of the huge red hole it is currently digging its way into.

Michael Fallon: criticising Saudi Arabia 'not helpful' for UK arms sales

Michael Fallon urged MPs to stop criticising Saudi Arabia in the interests of securing a fighter jet deal, provoking sharp criticism from human rights and arms trade campaigners.

More than 100 people arrested over London arms fair protests
Read more
The defence secretary was giving evidence to the Commons defence committee, where he was pressed about why a deal to sell Typhoon fighter jets to Saudi Arabia had not yet been signed.

Fallon said he had been working extremely hard on the deal and had travelled to Jeddah in September to discuss it with his Saudi counterpart. Although Qatar had agreed two days earlier to buy 24 jets from the UK, Fallon had to settle for signing a largely meaningless joint defence agreement with the Saudis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Has anyone in the British Press had the "male attributes" to ask Michael Fallon how it feels to be colluding with Saudi Arabia in war crimes?!?

Because these sales of these fighters, are certainly a glaring, egregious example of this.

The Saudis are bombarding Yemen everyday with bombing runs. Innocent Yemeni civilians, infants, children, women, and the medically infirm elderly are being assassinated from the skies daily with impunity.

With US military assistance, the Saudi military has blockaded all Yemeni ports, meaning that food cannot get in, and children are dying en masse from complications of malnutrition.

And now, Yemen has been struck by an horrific epidemic of cholera, possibly weaponised, which has been one of the worst documented epidemics in recent history.

Yes, the financial windfall for the British defense industry has been massive; but at what cost to the soul of Great Britain, that country which gave the world the Magna Carta?!?

So, Michael Fallon, I will ask, if no one else will, how does it feel to be in cullusion with Saudi Arabia in war crimes in Yemen, and financially
hitched at the hip with the Butcher of Yemen, Prince Salman?!?

Drivers are already charged 11.50 pounds ($15) under a congestion charge. But those driving petrol and diesel vehicles typically before 2006 will now need to pay an additional 10 pounds ($13.19). That means if you have an older vehicle before 2006 or a diesel vehicle you will be paying a total of 21.50 pounds or ($28.19) just to get into the city...

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.”

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!)

'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.

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.

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.

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.

“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.”
