Israeli Espionage Operations against Hamas Commander Exposed

The Palestinian resistance forces could discover an advanced system mounted near the house of a senior Hamas commander in Gaza to spy on him.

The Arabic-language al-Akhbar newspaper quoted informed security sources affiliated to the Palestinian resistance as saying that the system was due to eavesdrop on Mrwan Issa, a senior commander of al-Qassam Brigades, but the resistance forces could find and dismantle it.

The sources said that the system received sound waves from Issa's house and sent it to the receivers inside the occupied territories, adding that it is considered as a new method used by the Israelis to spy on Palestinians.

According to the paper, the resistance forces also could find and arrest the "mercenary who had planted the system in the region.

The military wing of Hamas said earlier this month that the botched undercover Israeli operation in the Palestinian enclave in November was aimed to plant spying devices in their communications network.

CBI Governor: Japan Restarts Oil Imports from Iran

Governor of the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) Abdolnasser Hemmati announced on Monday that Japan has resumed supply of crude from Iran.
"Japan started operations to import oil from Iran today after China, South Korea, India and Turkey," Hemmati wrote on his Instagram page on Monday.

He added that the revenues collected from the new oil deals along with tens of billions of dollars seen as active CBI resources in foreign banks are a strong and safe backup for Iran's economy and will be used for the country's trade.

After suspending all shipments of Iranian crude to Japanese refineries ahead of the November 5 launch of US sanctions against Tehran, Japanese refiners resumed Iranian oil imports.

Japan is one of Iran’s largest oil importers, but it is also the United States’ staunchest ally in Asia—and the combination of the two has not worked to Tokyo’s advantage.

SNL Writer Offers Blowj*bs in Exchange for Someone Punching a Covington Catholic Student in the Face

A contributing writer for Saturday Night Live has offered her followers a blowjob if they physically assault one of the kids from Covington Catholic High School.

Despite the media narrative being widely debunked — and the proof that the kids were well-behaved while adults hurled racial slurs and insults at them — “comedian” Sarah Beattie has opted to solicit violence in exchange for sex acts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder how Sarah's parents felt when they saw that!

Twitter Allows ‘Verified’ Calls for Violence Against Conservative High School Kids

Twitter has spent years assuring the public that it will crack down on trolling, harassment, and violent threats. It’s also pledged to tackle “misinformation” and “unhealthy conversation,” using these loaded terms as excuses to ban a wide range of anti-progressive dissidents from the platform.

But when innocent conservative high school kids are flooded with violent threats, targeted harassment and doxing on the basis of media-promoted misinformation, Jack Dorsey and his staff seem to do nothing — it even briefly promoted the smears.

Over the past 48 hours, an angry mob of Twitter users — many of them with blue checkmarks next to their name, signaling endorsement of their messages by the company — have flooded the platform with disgusting abuse, violent threats, and calls to harass innocent students of the Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only people voter ID laws keep from voting are those who are not supposed to vote!

Women’s March-er Boasts About Multiple Abortions: ‘I Don’t Give a F**k!’

In a profanity-laced exchange with a pro-life activist captured by Breitbart News on Saturday, a young woman attending the far-left Women’s March in Washington, D.C. was seen boasting about the number of abortions she had.
“My body, my choice!” the young woman, donning a pink pussyhat synonymous with the Women’s March, is seen shouting at the activist at the start of the video. “It is my body until they cut the umbilical cord, motherfucker!”

“Stop talking about women’s reproductive rights when you’ve got a dick!” she says. “You’re a man. You don’t get to comment about me having a fucking baby!” she then tells the pro-life activist.

Khan’s London: Second World War Memorial Desecrated, Churchill Statue Vandalised

A memorial to the tens of thousands of Bomber Command air crew who lost their lives during the Second World War has been vandalised in London, along with a nearby statue of wartime leader Sir Winston Churchill.

The memorial in London’s Green Park has been splattered with a large amount of white paint, “including the statue of eight Bomber Command crew members which stands at its centre, the marble plinth it stands upon and the surrounding Portland stone.”

So far, no arrests have been made, but the Metropolitan Police are said to be investigating CCTV footage from the site.

Report: Erdogan Urges Trump in Phone Call to Let Turkey Control Kurdish Syria

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan once again attempted to convince his American counterpart, President Donald Trump, to allow Turkey to control Manbij, a region in northern Syria under the auspices of the Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG/YPJ), in a phone call Sunday.

The YPG is one of America’s closest and most reliable allies in the country, responsible for eliminating much of the Islamic State presence in Syria and keeping the terrorist group out of Manbij and much of Syrian Kurdistan (Rojava). The Turkish government considers YPG fighters “terrorists” indistinguishable from the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), a Marxist, U.S.-designated terrorist group.

The Border Patrol video, reported by NBC News’ Gabe Gutierrez and Annie Rose Ramos, shows a bus approaching an unsecured portion of the Arizona-Mexico border during the early morning hours of January 14.

U.S. Government Issues Security Alert After Attacks on Mexican Border City Cops

The United States Consulate General in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico, issued a security alert following a series of coordinated attacks against police officers in that city and for Ciudad De Chihuahua. Gunmen carried out the attacks on January 17.

The security alert states, “Authorities believe that members of organized criminal groups are carrying out these attacks, which are expected to continue.” The alert issued on January 18 also advises, “U.S. government personnel have been advised to avoid police stations and other law enforcement facilities in both cities to the extent possible until further notice.”

The attacks on Thursday are believed to be retaliation for the seizure of 22 kilograms (48 pounds) of methamphetamine by the municipal police. An alignment forged by “La Línea” and “Los Mexicles” carried out the retaliatory attacks, according to the Ciudad Juárez Mayor Armando Cabada Alvídrez.

US-Kurdish patrol attacked in Syria as Erdo?an offers to step in

The threat of a growing security vacuum in Syria as a result of Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw US troops has been underlined by an attack on a joint US-Kurdish patrol, which reportedly killed five people and injured at least two American soldiers.

The attack on Monday, in which a suicide bomber drove a car into a checkpoint, emphasised the vulnerability of American troops since the US president declared he was withdrawing 2,000 soldiers from northern Syria on the grounds that Islamic State has been defeated.

The bomber targeted a joint patrol by US forces and the Kurdish-dominated Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the Hasakah countryside of north-east Syria.

Kurdish forces later claimed none of their number had been killed.

Shocking Admission By FBI Veteran Shows Why The FBI Shouldn't Exist

On the 18th of November, 1964, the FBI’s appallingly corrupt boss J. Edgar Hoover denounced Martin Luther King Jr. as “the most notorious liar in the country.” A few days later, a Hoover deputy named William Sullivan wrote King a letter posing as a disillusioned follower and using powerful, manipulative language to urge the civil rights leader to commit suicide before evidence of his extramarital affair became public. Enclosed was an FBI recording containing evidence of the affair.

Whenever America celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day we should remind ourselves that it is a known, undisputed fact that the Federal Bureau of Investigation engineered a psyop to manipulate one of the world’s greatest minds into committing suicide. It is also worth reviewing the compelling argument for the case that the FBI was behind King’s assassination as well.

The U.S. State Department allegedly sent a cable to the Lebanese Embassy in Washington that warned them against inviting Syria to the Arab Economic Summit in Beirut that is scheduled to take place this week, Al-Akhbar reported on Wednesday.

According to Al-Akhbar, Lebanon was not only warned against inviting Syria to the Arab Economic Summit, but Washington also threatened sanctions against Lebanon if they participate in any reconstruction efforts.

Palestinian professor sues SF State for breach of contract, discrimination

Last week, lawyers for Professor Rabab Abdulhadi filed suit in US District Court against San Francisco State University (SFSU) and top administrators including President Leslie Wong, seeking a permanent court judgment to protect the Arab and Muslim Ethnicities and Diasporas (AMED) program and protect the civil rights and freedom of speech of AMED director Professor Rabab Abdulhadi PhD and her students.

SFSU hired Dr. Abdulhadi in 2006 with a written promise to build a real program. “For ten years, they have refused contractually agreed support for AMED Studies. They broke their commitment to me and to the AMED community, but we built the program anyway,” said Dr. Abdulhadi. “They’ve been trying to dismantle it and prevent its institutionalization ever since. Now they’re trying to destroy it,” said Mark Kleiman, one of the lawyers for Dr. Abdulhadi.

Israeli Forces Storm Al-Aqsa, Take Measurements and Photographs

Israeli forces stormed into Al Aqsa Mosque, on Monday morning, and began to photograph the mosque’s landmarks and take measurements without mentioning any reasons for it.

Later this morning, groups of Israeli settlers renewed the provocative incursions into Al-Aqsa Mosque through the Moroccan Gate, carried out tours inside the mosque, under high security reinforcement, until they left the mosque.

In the same context, Israeli occupation authorities decided, on Sunday, to temporarily expel five guards from Al-Aqsa Mosque for periods ranging from four to six months.

According to Al Ray, the six-month deportation decision included guards Fadi Alian, Louai Abu Saad, Ahmed Abu Alia and a member of the Jerusalem district Awad Salaymeh.

The occupation decided to expel Yahya Shehadeh and Salman Abu Miyaleh, for 4 months, from the mosque.

Israeli settlers storm the Islamic holy site on a daily basis, in an attempt to divide the mosque temporally and spatially.

When Democracy Fails to Deliver

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible … make violent revolution inevitable,” said John F. Kennedy.

In 2016, the U.S. and Britain were both witness to peaceful revolutions.

The British voted 52-48 to sever ties to the European Union, restore their full sovereignty, declare independence and go their own way in the world. Trade and immigration policy would henceforth be decided by a parliament elected by the people, not by bureaucrats in Brussels.

“Brexit” it was called. And British defiance stunned global elites.

Two and a half years later, Britain is still inside the EU, and no one seems to know when or whether the divorce will take place — a victory of London and European elites over the expressed will of the British people.

Virginia governor announces bill to repeal voter ID requirement, allow no-excuse absentee voting

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) announced Monday that he is introducing a legislative package that would repeal voter identification requirements and implement no-excuse absentee voting.

The package also addresses campaign finance, proposing to limit large campaign contributions, ban contributions made directly by corporations and businesses and ban the use of campaign funds for personal use.

Northam said in a statement announcing the legislation that the package would "encourage every eligible voter to exercise" their right to vote.

“Participation makes our democracy strong — we should encourage every eligible voter to exercise this fundamental right, rather than creating unnecessary barriers that make getting to the ballot box difficult,” Northam said.

FLASHBACK - Clinton Foundation took massive payoffs, promised Hammond Ranch and other publicly owned lands to Russians along with one-fifth of our uranium ore

As it turns out there’s a lot more to the story behind the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in Princeton, Oregon. A whole lot more and this article is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

As you may or may not know, on January 4 Intellihub reported that the Hammond’s ranch and other ranchlands surrounding the refuge sit atop a vast swath of precious metals, minerals, and uranium that’s heavily desired by not only the federal government but foreign entities as well.

Prior to the publication of this article the federal government’s full motive to seize the land was not yet fully understood but it was known that nefarious elements were operating in the area.

After further investigation, more pieces of the puzzle have been put in place and you’re not going to believe the characters who are involved.

Pence Urges Venezuelans To Rise Up Against "Dictator" Maduro After Failed Military Revolt

launched by 27 low-ranking officers and their subsequent arrests in the Cotiza neighborhood of Caracas, which sparked overnight protests and sporadic clashes with police after opposition leader Juan Guaido made a broad appeal to the military in a speech, urging them to demand Maduro step down. Guaido and other opposition leaders in the National Assembly have declared Wednesday a nation-wide protest day seeking to topple the regime — itself a historic date commemorating the end of Venezuela's military dictatorship in 1958.

On Tuesday US Vice President Mike Pence urged the Venezuelan people to "make your voices heard" in follow-up to Guaido's risky appeal, which appears a continuation of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's comments throwing the United States' full weight behind Venezuela's opposition seeking to depose President Nicolás Maduro, which he made over a week ago while in the Middle East after Maduro was sworn in to a widely contested six-year second term.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. Vice President, a word, please; much of the population is starving, sir; and US sanctions have not helped the people of Venezuela very much either.

I am praying (literally) for a peaceful demonstration, but understand that very possibly....the US already likely has some "players in the game" who will do their best to create a pitched, violent battle with the military and police, in images that will be on the net, and floating around the world, to document Venezuela's fall into chaos.

But they will not see the "unseen hand" of the devastation created by US sanctions, and what it has meant to both its working people, and its oil business in particular.

Israel Destroyed Eight Syrian Air Defense Targets, Killed 11 Troops

Despite claiming that their Sunday night airstrikes against Syria were exclusively targeting Iran’s Quds Force, Israeli airstrikes against Syria appear to have almost exclusively hit Syrian military targets, particularly the nation’s air defenses around Damascus airport.

Israeli strikes destroyed eight Syrian air defense batteries, and killed at least 11 troops in the strikes. The batteries were mostly aging Soviet designs, the sort Syria has traditionally favored for targeting incoming Israeli missiles.

The Syrian systems had some success, too, with Russia reporting that the Syrians had successfully intercepted more than 30 Israeli missiles during the attack. Conspicuously absent from the engagement, however, were the Russian S-300 systems recently provided to Syria.

What Should We Learn from 40 Years of U.S. Intervention in the Middle East?

With the surprise announcement of the withdrawal of U.S. forces in Syria, and to a lesser extent, the announcement of a drawdown of 7,000 U.S. troops from Afghanistan, many interventionist critics who had tolerated Donald Trump’s ineffectual strikes against Assad and peace talks with the Taliban seem to have reached a boiling point. But even after Trump defended his position and said Iran “can do what they want there” in Syria, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Advisor John Bolton have undercut the clarity of what seemed like a presidential decree mandating a withdrawal.

Americans killed in Syria show cost in blood of delaying President Trump’s directive to withdraw

U.S. military forces are designed to defend Americans from actual or imminent attack. They are not for “posturing,” sending signals or defending the interests of other countries or groups — and our troops are not supposed to sacrifice their lives to separate one fighting force from another in a civil war.

The four Americans killed in Syria last week provide graphic reminders of the cost in blood of our continued delay in executing President Donald Trump’s directive to withdraw. The 2,000 troops are far too few to provide even tactical utility to our country, much less a strategic rationale.

Syria shot down more than 30 Israeli cruise missiles, bombs - Ifax

Syrian military air defences destroyed more than 30 cruise missiles and guided bombs during Israeli air strikes in the early hours of Monday, Russia’s defence control centre was quoted by Interfax news agency as saying.

Israeli air strikes targeting an airport in southeastern Damascus killed four Syrian soldiers and wounded six, the military centre was quoted by RIA news agency as saying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think Israel carried out this massive attack (and announced it) to goad Syria into using the S-300 system. Had Syria fallen for it, and used up the S-300 on guided bombs and cruise missiles, I suspect Israel would have followed up with a major air strike.

Missile Defense Is the Biggest, Longest-Running Scam in the History of the Defense Department

"After spending over $300 billion on missile defense programs since 1983, America has the ability to deter short- and medium-range ballistic missiles. Expanding that to a global defense system is undoable and unaffordable"

Jan 22 10:05


When the S-300 missile system was deployed it was portrayed as a game changer. But Reuters had reported in 2015 and again in October 2018 that Israel had trained against the S-300 system in Greece.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have a different theory. Syria is not going to waste the costly S-300 shooting at Israeli missiles. They are holding the S-300 in reserve until Israel aircraft cross the border.

Head of Israeli bar association named as suspect in 'sex-for-judgeship' scandal

A top Israeli lawyer has been arrested on suspicions that he advocated in favour of the promotion of at least two judges in exchange for sexual favours, Israeli media reported.

Efraim Naveh, president of the Israel Bar Association, was arrested on Wednesday and appeared in court later that evening, Haaretz newspaper said.

His identity was only released publicly later in the day as the investigation into the case, dubbed by Israeli media outlets as the "sex for judgeship scandal", was under a gag order.

Naveh, who Israeli media outlets say has close ties to senior Israeli governmental and judicial officials, appointed a female judge to a magistrate court, as well as another judge, Haaretz said, citing Israeli police.

Before his identity was made public, Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said police anti-corruption unit Lahav 433 was leading an investigation into a male lawyer.

Murders in Mexico rise by a third in 2018 to new record

Murders in Mexico rose by 33 percent in 2018, breaking the record for a second year running, official data showed, underlining the task facing the new president who has pledged to reduce violence in the cartel-ravaged country.

Investigators opened to 33,341 murder probes compared with the previous year’s record of 25,036, according to information from the Interior Ministry published on Sunday.

Mexico has struggled with years of violence as the government has battled brutal drug cartels, often by taking out their leaders. That has resulted in fragmentation of gangs and increasingly vicious internecine fighting.

The Media Wildly Mischaracterized That Video of Covington Catholic Students Confronting a Native American Veteran

Partial video footage of students from a Catholic high school allegedly harassing a Native American veteran after the anti-abortion March for Life rally in Washington, D.C., over the weekend quickly went viral, provoking widespread condemnation of the kids on social media. Various media figures and Twitter users called for them to be doxed, shamed, or otherwise punished, and school administrators said they would consider expulsion.

But the rest of the video—nearly two hours of additional footage showing what happened before and after the encounter—adds important context that strongly contradicts the media's narrative.

Far from engaging in racially motivated harassment, the group of mostly white, MAGA-hat-wearing male teenagers remained relatively calm and restrained despite being subjected to incessant racist, homophobic, and bigoted verbal abuse by members of the bizarre religious sect Black Hebrew Israelites, who were lurking nearby.

Cleopatra's tomb may have been found

Egypt's top archaeologist has made his version of a sales pitch, presenting 22 coins, 10 mummies, and a fragment of a mask with a cleft chin as evidence that the discovery of the lost tomb of Mark Antony and Cleopatra is at hand.

Zahi Hawass showed off the ancient treasures to journalists on Sunday during a tour of a 2,000-year-old temple to the god Osiris, where they were found. He believes the site near the Mediterranean Sea contains the tomb of the doomed lovers that has been shrouded in mystery for so long.

"In my opinion, if this tomb is found, it will be one of the most important discoveries of the 21st century because of the love between Cleopatra and Mark Antony, and because of the sad story of their death," he said.

The lovers challenged Caesar Augustus for control of the Roman Empire more than two millennia ago. Their armies were defeated and rather than submit to capture, they committed suicide - Mark Antony by his sword, Cleopatra with a poisonous asp.

“It forces the spotlight on whether the UK played a role in the FBI’s investigation launched before the 2016 presidential election into Trump campaign ties to the Kremlin… Mr. Trump’s allies and former advisers are raising questions about the UK’s role in the start of the probe, given many of the key figures and meetings were located in Britain… One former top White House adviser to Mr. Trump made similar insinuations, telling this newspaper: “You know the Brits are up to their neck.” The source added on the Page wiretap application: “I think that stuff is going to implicate MI5 and MI6 in a bunch of activities they don’t want to be implicated in, along with FBI, counter-terrorism and the CIA.”

She also said the European Parliament elections in May ought to be a referendum on whether Macron stays in office. “If Macron does not have the wisdom to go back to the people by dissolving parliament, then let the political arbitrage come from European elections,” she said.

Bloodbath on the high street: More than 175,000 jobs will be cut this year and 23,395 shops will shut as internet sales batter retailers

A total of 175,000 jobs are set to disappear from the High Street this year as the onslaught from online rivals continues.

A slump in the value of retail property is expected to see 23,395 shops shut as customers shun town centres in favour of internet shopping, according to property experts.

It marks a significant increase on last year when a string of retailers including Toys R Us, Poundworld and Maplin went bust, leading to the closure of 20,000 stores and the loss of 150,000 jobs.

Trump accuses the FBI of relying on 'illegal' means to spy on campaign adviser after report reveals 'unusual' steps the bureau took to obtain a warrant

President Trump accused the FBI on Tuesday of relying on 'illegal' methods to obtain evidence to spy on campaign adviser Carter Page.

A Fox News report revealed the that 'unusual steps' were taken in the process to the secure the FISA warrant that the FBI used to spy on Page in the Russian collusion and election meddling investigation.

The report was based on closed-door testimony that former top FBI attorney James Baker provided to Congress, in which he said he was personally involved in the application process.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sometimes I think this government couldn't possibly be more crooked, they surprise me yet again!!

Anyone involved with the cobbling together of this warrant, must have had their consciences surgically removed before joining the US government.

Doctors told to DOUBLE the dose of antibiotics gonorrhoea patients are given 'because the STI is quickly becoming resistant to medicine'

Doctors need to double the dose of antibiotics they give to patients with gonorrhoea because it's becoming resistant to medicine, experts have warned.

The British Association for Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH) today issued new guidelines for treating the STI for the first time since 2011.

Its recommendations follow news released earlier this month that two women in the UK caught 'super gonorrhoea' - one of whom was the first to ever catch it in Britain.

BASHH urges doctors to stop using one of the routine antibiotics and to increase the dose of another in what it called 'a major change'.

One of the reasons identify theft is considered by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration to be the crime of the century is because of the IRS. The Internal Revenue Service makes growing demands for information about people’s businesses and private lives every day. There is no such thing as personal privacy these days. That the IRS sends citizens a so-called “Privacy Act Notice” in all its mailings is a farce. The IRS lays claim to your data without court authority more so than any other government agency. And to make matters worse, they share the data with any other federal, state or local government agency claiming an interest, including foreign governments.

A river of data

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem with data is, without a real capability to sort and identify what your "data streams" pull in, you become awash with data which makes no sense, and cannot be intelligently, interpreted.

‘£171,000 being spent every hour on no-deal Brexit’: Corbyn lashes out at ‘wasteful’ UK govt

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has hit out at UK govt ministers, claiming they are spending £171k ($220k) every hour on no-deal preparations, arguing that the billions being “wasted” could be used to fund essential public services.
Corbyn, who is refusing to have any discussions with PM Theresa May over Brexit until she rules out leaving the EU without a deal, claims that the Tory government has already squandered £1.9 billion ($2.4bn) on no-deal planning, The Mirror reports.

He argues that this sum of money is the equivalent to paying the annual salaries of 50,000 secondary schools teachers; 86,000 newly qualified nurses; or 49,000 police constables.

Iran not invited, Russia snubs intl conference on Middle East – Warsaw

Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz says that Iran has not been invited to an international conference on the Middle East in Warsaw next month. Czaputowicz said in remarks published on Monday that Iran’s presence would have hampered talks because the language that Tehran uses is “hard to accept.” Iran has protested over the February 13-14 conference, calling it a hostile move. Poland and the US are co-hosting the event, which has also been met with a lukewarm reaction from the European Union, whose foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini will not be attending. Czaputowicz also said Russia has advised that it will not participate either, AP reports.

Is palm oil safe? Studies into the controversial oil have been 'authored by the industry' as researchers demand independent probe

Researchers have demanded an independent probe into the safety of palm oil amid claims existing studies have been funded by the industry.

Palm oil is a type of trans fat thought to be found in roughly half of all packaged goods on supermarket shelves in the UK under various names.

Trans fats are widely recognised as bad for health, but there is significant research, funded by the industry, pointing towards palm oil as healthy.

The palm oil industry has been accused of using tactics to influence research into its positive health effects, in a similar way to the alcohol and tobacco industries.

Macron promises to stand for reforms, says lack of them led to Louis XVI execution

King Louis XVI’s refusal to embrace reforms led to his downfall, Emmanuel Macron told corporate executives gathered at Versailles. The meeting was held in part to alleviate investors’ fears after 10 weeks of Yellow Vest protests.

An estimated 150 executives, including Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi, JPMorgan Chase CEO James Dimon, and Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey, met with the French president at the decadent palace outside of Paris.

“A lot of people thought that it was not a good date to gather here,” Macron told his guests, referring to the execution of French King Louis XVI, who was guillotined on January 21, exactly 226 years ago on Monday. “But when you look at French history, if at the end they ended up like that, it’s because a lot of leaders decided not to reform.”

Cabinet Minister Warns Blocking Brexit Will Unleash ‘Political Tsunami’

Britain’s Secretary of State for International Trade has warned that if politicians refuse to respect the people’s vote for Brexit it could unleash a “political tsunami” with “unknowable consequences” for the stability of the realm.

Cabinet Brexiteer Liam Fox wrote in the Sunday Telegraph that “failure to deliver Brexit would produce a yawning gap between Parliament and the people, a schism in our political system with unknowable consequences.”

Dr Fox’s intervention was inspired by the latest edition of the BBC Question Time programme, in which Brexit-supporting journalist Isabel Oakeshott — outnumbered four-to-one on the panel, as is common for Brexiteers appearing on broadcast media — received cheers and applause from the studio audience for saying said Theresa May should “walk away” from negotiations with an intransigent EU and pursue a clean, No Deal exit.

Remigration: Czech Republic to Pay Non-EU Migrants to Go Home

The Czech Republic is launching a programme to pay non-EU migrants to go home, noting that funding the scheme would cost taxpayers “far less” than if migrant groups remained in the country.

With an information campaign set to be put out on social media and with leaflets and posters from April, the Czech Interior Ministry said it hopes the first migrants participating in its new programme, titled ‘Návraty’ (Returns), will be processed in the third quarter of 2019.

With a particular focus on migrants from Afghanistan, Iraq, Nigeria, Russia, and Vietnam, the programme will offer foreign nationals up to 4,000 euros’ financial assistance towards transportation costs, setting up accommodation in their homelands, and purchasing livestock.

France Builds Trump-Style Wall to Stop Illegals Getting to Britain

French authorities have built a ten-foot wall at a Total station in Calais used by migrants who attempt to storm lorries and break into Britain.

The barrier is being erected at a petrol station in the Marcel-Doret area where lorries stop to fill up with fuel before heading to the port and onwards to the United Kingdom. It is set to be finished by mid-February.

Local prefect Fabien Sudry told Nord Littoral that “smuggling networks meet there and take advantage of stations near the port to get migrants in trucks.

Catholic Priest Slams March for Life as ‘Repulsive and Futile’

A prominent American priest has dissed the Washington March for Life as “repulsive and futile,” denouncing the pro-life event as “basically a gathering for many right-wing anti-abortion hardliners.”

Franciscan friar Father Daniel Horan, a pro-LGBT priest and professor who will be speaking at the upcoming Los Angeles Religious Education Congress, took to Twitter this weekend to bash the March for Life and condemn without trial a group of white Catholic high school boys as “racists” for supposedly “taunting” a Native American man beating a drum.

Father Horan was one of the many voices from the Catholic Left who joined the mainstream media lynching of students from Covington Catholic High School this weekend, rashly judging them as racists without bothering to ascertain what actually happened, simply because some of the boys were wearing MAGA hats.

Graham Plans to Dig Into Clinton, Obama Scandals, Angering Democrats

As the newly appointed chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Lindsey Graham wants to focus on Obama-era scandals, enraging Democrats on the panel.

Graham on Monday outlined several areas he wants to probe, the Hill reported. These areas include the FBI’s handling of its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant applications targeting former Trump campaign aide Carter Page. He has also reportedly called for an investigation into the Democrats’ conduct during Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

Graham told reporters earlier this month that he would do a “deep dive into the FISA issue” as chairman of the Judiciary Committee. And he told Fox News last month that he believed the FBI “phoned in” the Clinton probe, noting that there is “a certain unevenness here about how you investigate campaigns.”

Windows 7 versus Windows 10: Here comes the final showdown

Microsoft is certainly keen for businesses to upgrade, touting the security of Windows 10 over Windows 7 as a good reason to make the move. It's also keen to get as many users onto Windows 10 as possible because that will help it build momentum behind Windows-as-a-Service, which means regular feature updates rather than massive upgrade projects every few years.

But enterprises, which are often cautious about new technology, will have noted Microsoft's buggy recent Windows 10 upgrades and will worry about the impact on their infrastructure.

So what happens now?

Kunstler: America's "All Is Lost" Moment Looms

As in this age of Hollywood sequels and prequels, America prefers to recycle old ideas rather than entertain new ones, so you can see exactly how the 2020 presidential election is shaping up to be a replay of the Great Depression, with Roosevelt-to-rescue! — only this time it’ll be with somebody in the role of Eleanor Roosevelt as chief executive. Donald Trump, of course, being the designated bag-holder for all the financial blunders of the past decade, gets to be Herbert Hoover. As was the case in the original, economic depression will segue into war, with maybe not such a happy ending for us as World War Two was.

Adamowicz's Assassination Is Being Exploited To Politically Polarize Poland

Gda?sk mayor Pawe? Adamowicz of the Civil Platform (or PO) opposition party died after being stabbed in the heart by a deranged assailant at a charity concert on Sunday, who deceived security in order to get onstage and then give a crazed rant after the attack attempting to justify his crime on the alleged grounds that the mayor’s party wrongly imprisoned him.

All of Poland is mourning Adamowicz’s death and even his political rivals made speeches denouncing his assassination, but there are already some voices that are trying to make this into a partisan issue in order to score points ahead of this May’s European Parliamentary elections and besmirch the credibility of the ruling Law & Justice Party (also known by its Polish abbreviation as PiS).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The irony here, is almost painful; condolences to Adamowicz’s families and friends, and please, can we be just a little more civil as alleged "master ascendents" of the food chain on this planet?????

If the Speaker and Dominic Grieve are going to vandalise the constitution and overturn established parliamentary conventions, don’t expect the government to just roll over. The Attorney General Geoffrey Cox will be studying this argument closely as no doubt will the Brexit sympathetic Queen. Bercow is only the Prince of Parliament, though he might not want to believe, the Queen still outranks him constitutionally.

Europe wants to mine the moon by 2025: European Space Agency reveals plan that could spark a new space race

Plans for a European base on the moon have taken a major step forward.

The European Space Agency revealed it has signed up rocket maker ArianeGroup to develop plans for a moon base that could be used to mine material from the lunar surface.

The project will 'examine the possibility of going to the Moon before 2025 and starting to work there' - and could trigger a new space race as countries rush to harness lunar resources.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It sounds great, but what is missing is just what they expect to find on the Moon that justifies the unit cost of extraction. If it costs $101 to mine $100 worth of gold, the mine closes down.

In this case, we are talking about travel back and forth to the Moon, plus returning the mined cargo, which we presume will weigh a lot more than the 800 pounds of rocks brought back by Apollo.
