UK’s ‘Confused’ Stance On Yemen ‘Will Lead To Terrorist Attacks On British Soil’

Britain is increasing the likelihood of a terrorist attack on home soil if the government does not rethink its “confused” Yemen policy, a former international development secretary has warned.

Andrew Mitchell MP, speaking to the Telegraph on his return from Yemen, said Britain’s support for the Saudi coalition “will stoke a further generation of terror” and lead to “threats to Europe.”

A house in Manchester has been almost entirely destroyed by an explosion, reportedly leaving five people injured.

The home in Blackley can be seen roofless and reduced to crumbling brickwork in videos and pictures on social media.

Trump's Offer Of Quick Post-Brexit Trade Deal Welcomed By Downing Street

In his very first interview with the British press, US President-elect Donald Trump revealed the UK has a “special place” in his heart and that he believes the country will flourish after Brexit.

Interviewed by former cabinet minister and staunch Brexiteer Michael Gove for the Times, Trump pledged to agree a trade deal with Britain as soon as it leaves the European Union.

Millions Face Dire Consequences Of Rundown Of Britain’s National Health Service

Prime Minister Theresa May and Conservative ministers have spent the last week denying that the National Health Service (NHS) is in an enormous crisis.

Last weekend, two patients at Worcestershire Royal Hospital died after waiting hours for treatment in hospital corridors. At the same time, more than 20 hospitals raised alerts that they could no longer provide basic services to the public. In response, the British Red Cross said, accurately, that the NHS was facing a “humanitarian crisis.”

Ransomware brutes smacked 1 in 3 NHS trusts last year

A third (30 per cent) of NHS trusts have been infected by ransomware, with one – the Imperial College Healthcare in London – suffering 19 attacks in just 12 months.

According to results of a Freedom of Information-based study, none of the trusts reported paying a ransom or informed law enforcement. All preferred to deal with the attacks internally.

Additionally, of the 15 trusts who were able to provide further information about the origin of the attacks, 87 per cent reported that the attacker gained access through a networked NHS device, with 80 per cent targeted by a phishing scheme.

Line Of Duty: Drug Abuse In The British Armed Forces On The Rise

The British military has seen a 30 percent spike in personnel caught and expelled from the ranks for using illicit substances, according to new figures.

Data obtained by the Sun under Freedom of Information indicates up to 1,000 service personnel have failed drug tests in the last 12 months, with hundreds discharged and others awaiting disciplinary action.

Trump, Kissinger and Ma playing on a crowded chessboard

Place your bets on who will be the major partner in the Trump, Kissinger and Ma law firm.

Kissinger has drafted a plan to officially recognize Crimea as part of Russia and lift the Obama administration’s economic sanctions.

The plan fits into Kissinger’s overall strategy — call it a traditional British Balance of Power, or Divide and Rule, approach — of breaking up the Eurasian front (Russia-China-Iran) that constitutes the real “threat” to what Mattis defines as the “established world order.”

There Is No Anti Semitism in Britain

In the end of October (2016) we learned from the British Jewish media that Police were called to University College London (UCL) amid claims of common assault and verbal intimidation by "pro-Palestinian protestors" at an event with an Israeli speaker.

We had to wait another three months for a single honest Jew (Jerry Lewis of Hampstead Synagogue) to admit in front of the notorious ultra Zionist BOD, that the event at UCL was actually provoked by Jewish groups that have nothing to do with the Jewish students community. At least one of those Jewish groups is funded by Israel according to Lewis. These groups invoke 'hatred' against Jews because this is how they justify their existence and sustain their funding.

REVEALED: Tiny Pacific island with just 42 people gets £18MILLION in UK Foreign Aid

BRITAIN’S aid budget has handed the equivalent of £426,000 to each inhabitant of a Pacific island over the past six years, it has been revealed.

More than £17.9million of UK taxpayer’s money has provided a school, health centre and ferry service to the those living on Pitcairn Island in the South Pacific halfway between Peru and New Zealand since 2011.

But just 42 people are said to live there.

The islanders, who are related to sailors who took party in the Mutiny on the Bounty, will receive almost £3.5m in 2017 - equivalent to £82,750 each.

In comparison the average British salary for last year was £26,500 - less than two thirds lower than what the islanders are getting.

Russia's navy is engaging in its highest level of activity for more than 25 years, Britain's First Sea Lord warns as Putin prepares for war 

The Royal Navy is facing its greatest challenge from Russia in more than 25 years, the First Sea Lord has warned.

Admiral Sir Philip Jones told his sailors that the Navy was dealing with the highest level of activity from submarines and warships since the end of the Cold War.
He added that the Navy was having to make 'difficult' cuts to equipment as Vladimir Putin's fleet had increased its activity.

In a New Year message to the Navy, Sir Philip said: 'In northern Europe and the Baltic, we are responding to the highest level of Russian naval activity since the end of the Cold War.'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Admiral Sir Philip Jones: sir, you seem to be developing a severe case of SMD (Selective Memory Disorder), and I would like to politely mention US and NATO troop movements of the last couple of weeks, available from public and common sources:

100’s of US tanks, heavy equipment flow into Europe to counter ‘Russian aggression’

Poland welcomes thousands of US troops in NATO show of force

US MARINES LAND IN NORWAY, SIGNALING DEPARTURE FROM POST-WW2 COMMITMENT TO RUSSIA

So what can we possibly assume that Vlad (the NON-impaler) and the Kremlin are thinking?!? Perhaps, in response to all these US/NATO movement of troops and equipment, current Russian naval deployments are possibly intended to keep Russia's options open, in case there is a false flag or direct attack against it?!?

Some bloggers have certainly been asking the question of whether the design intent of the deployment of all these NATO and US troops to Russia's borders, and even Blogger Mac Slavo has asked the question:

Is This The Coup In America? “U.S. Troops On Russian Border” To Start War Before Inauguration

I would politely suggest to Admiral Sir Philip Jones that it is highly possible that current Russian Naval activities may well be an asymmetrical response to the massive numbers of troops sent by the US and NATO to Russia's borders.

Trust In Government, Business, & Media Has Collapsed In Britain – Poll

Trust in major media institutions, the government, as well as the business community has plummeted to disturbing new lows over the last 12 months, according to an annual study by polling firm Edelman.

The figures show that trust in the government, which stood at only 36 percent at the start of 2016, plunged even further to 26 percent.

Britain Refuses To Sign Paris Declaration For Israel-Palestine ‘Two State Solution’

British officials rebelled during a Paris peace conference last weekend, refusing to sign a joint agreement supporting negotiations for a two-state solution for Israel-Palestine.

The 70-nation-strong meeting was dubbed by many as “useless” and ignored by most main players in the conflict, but nothing seemed to cause more controversy than the UK’s claim that the conference could make the Palestinian camp more difficult to work with.

Humble pie for IMF as experts RAISE UK growth forecasts as Britain SMASHED doom prediction

The fund conceded demand in the UK held up "better than expected" after the Brexit vote, putting year on year growth at two per cent in 2016 - the highest in the G7, coming in above the United States' 1.6 per cent.

Economic expansion has also been reforecast UP for 2017 in the Washington-based fund's latest World Economic Outlook (WEO) report.

The UK economy is set to grow by 1.5 per cent this year, according to the fund.

In October the IMF predicted growth of 1.1 per cent.

Watch: Israel’s penetration of the UK's political system exposed

Readers of our website will know that Israel’s penetration of the British political system is deep and all pervasive, with stooges and flag wavers permeating every nook and cranny of the political establishment – political parties, think-tanks and academic institutions.

Now an investigation by Aljazeera TV has exposed for the whole world to see how the Israel lobby influences British politics. A six-month undercover investigation reveals how Israel penetrates different levels of British democracy...>>

Final Obama Shot At Brain Enhancement

During a tumultuous period of turnover of federal agencies just prior to the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States, the Federal Trade Commission appears to be taking a final shot at a company that in 2009 needled forgetful government officials who didn’t pay their taxes on time.

Theresa May to say UK is 'prepared to accept hard Brexit'

Theresa May is to announce that the government is prepared to accept a clean break with the EU in its negotiations for the UK’s departure, according to reports.

In a speech to be delivered on Tuesday, the prime minister is said to be preparing to make clear that she is willing to sacrifice the UK’s membership of the single market and customs union in order to bring an end to freedom of movement.

Can Trump Fix the Economy In 2017?

Paul Craig Roberts (born April 3, 1939) is an American economist, journalist, blogger and former civil servant. He reached the height of his government career when he became the United States Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy under President Reagan in 1981.

Dr. Roberts elucidates how Trump can fix the the Economy.

I cannot assure you that Trump is not another fake like Obama. But it is a mistake to begin with this assumption. Why write off in advance the only person with the courage to put his life on the line and take on the corrupt and evil Washington establishment?

Jan 14 13:15

Is Trump About to Debunk the Media’s ‘Putin-gate’ Conspiracy Theory?

So get out the popcorn, and put your feet up: the entertainment is about to begin!

Cold war drama fizzling fast

“It wouldn’t be a bad opening for a Tom Clancy novel about the Cold War” – that’s how the Los Angeles Times described the sequence of events leading up to the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats (“spies”) and the latest face-off between Washington and Moscow.

Indeed the whole episode of has about it a fictional aura, which is, after all, only appropriate, since the entire basis of this latest cold war drama is pure invention.

The Establishment Is Trying To Steal The Presidency From Trump And the Liberal-Left Is Helping

Where is the liberal-left’s moral conscience?

The US military, the CIA, and their whores in the US media are undemocratically pursuing their own agenda independent of the policy of the president-elect.

We could dismiss Trump’s admission as throwing a bone to the CIA so they can feel vindicated and get off his back, and the statements by Tillerson and Mattis could be dismissed as what has to be said in order to be confirmed.

US Intel Agencies Try to Strong-Arm Trump Into War with Russia

The big shots who run the country are trying to strong-arm ‘the Donald’ into carrying their water so the depredations can continue...

Powerful elites are using the credibility of the US Intelligence agencies to demonize Russia and prepare the country for war.

Last week’s 25-page report, that was released by the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, illustrates to what extent intelligence is being “fixed around the policy”.

The Intelligence Community has been coerced into compromising its credibility to incite fear of Russia and to advance the geopolitical ambitions of deep state powerbrokers.

Risks and Opportunities for 2017

Just a few days into 2017 and we can already say with a great degree of confidence that 2017 will be a historical year. Furthermore, I submit that 2017 will be the “Year of Trump” because one of roughly three things will happen: either Trump will fully deliver on his threats and promises, or Trump deliver on some, but far from all, his threats and promises or, finally, Trump will be neutralized by the Neocon-run Congress, media, intelligence community. He might even be impeached or murdered.

Of course, there is an infinity of sub-possibilities here, but for the purpose of this discussion I will call the first option “Trump heavy”, the second one “Trump light” and the third one “Trump down”.

Jan 14 12:55

Let Trump Be Trump?

Could Trump redefine the presidency?

Donald Trump may be a historic figure, but that does not mean he is easy to understand or anticipate. One thing is for sure – he has a unique style and form of communication.

Jan 14 09:28

Why Did the Al-Jazeera Expose Fail?

The Brits should certainly ask themselves how come it is left to a Qatari TV network to reveal the shocking news about their democracy being taken over by a foreign Lobby. Should this not be the concern for the BBC or the Guardian? And even after the Al-Jazeera expose, the British media remained silent and the question must be asked: would it have stayed as silent had Shai Masot been a Russian? Would it have stayed as silent if MP Joan Ryan was exposed as an Iranian lobbyist?

Boris Johnson Says Britain ‘First In Line’ For US Trade Deal, Defying Obama’s Pre-Brexit Warning

Body Of British Chef Killed Fighting ISIS In Syria Recovered From Battlefield

Review of The CIA As Organized Crime

The kind of revelation that Valentine has provided needs to be presented judiciously and dispassionately as it is shocking to the uninitiated.

If you want to learn about the CIA as a deep state within the surface state, read this book.

Priceless explanations abound in paragraphs. Valentine writes that the government wages psywar against the American public in various ways for various purposes.

The Neocon’s declaration of war against Trump

This is a political coup d’etat...an attempt at removing Donald Trump from the White House.

After several rather lame false starts, the Neocons have now taken a step which can only be called a declaration of war against Donald Trump.

It all began with CNN published an article entitled “Intel chiefs presented Trump with claims of Russian efforts to compromise him”

Within one short week we went from allegations of “Russian hacking” to “having a traitor sitting in the White House”

Israel's manipulation of UK politics: time for zero-tolerance

Both the Foreign Office and Boris Johnson, the UK's Foreign Secretary, have declared the Shai Masot affair "closed" after Masot, an employee of the Israeli embassy and probably a Mossad asset, plotted with gullible British MPs and political hangers-on to "take down" senior government figures including Johnson's deputy, Sir Alan Duncan. “The UK has a strong relationship with Israel and we consider the matter closed,” they announced. The Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow, who is Jewish, has also declined to investigate.

Conflict Of Interest? Theresa May Urged To Come Clean On Investments

UK Prime Minister Theresa May is facing calls to reveal her financial interests after it emerged she set up a blind trust of shares when she became prime minister, thought to be worth up to £145,000 ($175,000).

Such a trust, which allows May to keep investments while relinquishing management of them, was revealed in a recent Cabinet Office list of ministerial interests.

Britain Preparing ‘Official’ Anti-Moscow Campaign – Russian Embassy

The Russian embassy in London says that the British authorities are looking to launch an official campaign against Moscow, based on what senior diplomats in Britain reportedly called a “concerted drive by Russia to undermine the UK.”

The embassy posted a statement on its website apparently meant as a follow-up to an article published by the Sunday Times in mid-December. The newspaper reported Whitehall’s growing concerns over Russia, including a perceived cyber threat, an alleged increase in spying, and the deployment of “useful” MPs and “propaganda.”

UK child-abuse whistleblower sentenced to two years by kangaroo court held in secret

On Wednesday 11 January 2016, Melanie Shaw, the whistleblower on the horrific abuse of children which occurred at the then county council-run Beechwood Children's Home in Nottinghamshire in the late 1980s, was given a two-year custodial sentence in a secret court hearing.

The nature of the charge against her is unclear and that information is refused when requested of court staff. The case took place late yesterday morning but it did not appear on any court lists until the hearing was past.

Obama’s ‘Farewell To Arms’ As War Presidency Ends

Self-declared liberal Americans consider Bush to be a warmongering disaster, yet somehow they hail Obama as some kind of progressive «peace president».

Eight straight years of warmongering come to an end as US President Barack Obama bows out with his «farewell to the nation» speech this week, as fawning American media dubbed his valediction.

In reality, Obama’s outgoing address should have been billed as a «farewell to arms» made by arguably one of the most belligerent presidents to ever have occupied the White House.

Only in exceptionally delusional America could such a pernicious paradox be presented as something honorable and sentimental.

Stephen F Cohen: Who Are the Real Enemies of US National Security?

If anti-Trump American forces are behind untrue allegations of this magnitude, those forces are the primary enemies of US national security and should be investigated fully and publicly.

Cohen raises the following issues, which he and Batchelor discuss:

Two conflicting interpretations are suggested, says Cohen. Either Trump is about to become a potentially seditious American president. Or powerful US forces are trying to destroy his presidency before it begins, perhaps even prevent him from taking office.

Lloyds Bank customers still flogging the online dead horse

Day two and old nag Lloyds Banking Group’s online and mobile app services are still up and down like the Grand National, with no sign that customers will be put out of their misery any time soon.

An outage yesterday morning prevented punters from logging onto their accounts, to, say, apply for a loan or perhaps re-examine the damage caused by the financial blow-up over Chrimbo.

Lloyds, which claimed things were back up and running around lunchtime yesterday, refused to cough details on the nature of the problem and wouldn’t do so “even if” it knew the reason. But Reg readers told us access was patchy into the afternoon and again this morning.

A mouthpiece at Lloyds confirmed today, “we are still experiencing some intermittent issues”. He said, “We are still investigating, I don’t want to speculate on what the cause is.”

Government quietly launched ‘assault on freedom’ while distracting people, say campaigners behind legal challenge

The Government passed an “assault on freedom” while people were afraid and distracted, according to campaigners.

Campaign group Liberty is requesting a High Court judicial review of the wide-ranging new spying tactics in the Investigatory Powers Act.

That law was passed at the end of last year and gives spies – and a range of other organisations including the Food Standards Agency – the power to see anyone’s entire internet history, alongside other unprecedented rules. The Liberty challenge will focus on bulk powers, which let intelligence agencies collect up huge amount of data in case it needs to be used in future, meaning that people not under investigation have their information watched.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is more than a little depressing to understand that this legislation has come from the country which gave the world the Magna Carta.

“It’s all fake news. It’s phony stuff. It didn’t happen, and it was gotten by opponents of ours, as you know..."

President-elect Donald Trump held his first press conference Wednesday since winning the election and answered questions about his relationship with Russia, arrangements for the future of his business, and some of his plans for the first days of his administration. Trump vowed to repeal and replace Obamacare within the “same hour,”. He also promised to name a Supreme Court nominee within the first two weeks after he takes office. The event was marked by tense exchanges...

How many British MPs are working for Israel?*

Al Jazeera are to be congratulated on an undercover investigation exposing something most of us could probably have guessed: that some Israeli embassy staff in the UK – let’s not pussy around, Mossad agents – are working with senior political activists and politicians in the Conservative and Labour parties to subvert their own parties from within, and skew British foreign policy so that it benefits Israeli, rather than British, interests.

Israel apology after plot against UK politicians

The Israeli embassy has apologised to UK deputy foreign secretary Sir Alan Duncan for comments made by one of its staff members on plans "to take [him] down" due to his criticism of Israel's settlement activity in the occupied West Bank.

The comments, made by a senior political officer at the Israeli embassy Shai Masot, were secretly captured on film during a six-month undercover operation by Al Jazeera's Investigative Unit, which reveals plots by the Israeli diplomat and a British civil servant to destroy the careers of senior politicians.

In a conversation with Maria Strizzolo, who was then chief of staff to MP Robert Halfon, the deputy chairman of the ruling Conservative Party, Masot asked her if he could give her some names of MPs he would suggest she "take down".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

THIS is precisely how the Israeli Governmental Cartel thinks and operates.

And God bless Al Jazeera for having caught this conversation on film!

As a Christian Pacifist Activist, I would love to visit Jerusalem one day; unfortunately, however, because I have posted articles on this blog which have been more than a little critical of Israel's treatment of Palestinians, I would either be violently interrogated at Ben-Gurion airport, then refused entry, or assassinated outright if I got through airport security.

And to American Christian Zionists, who believe that they must blindly support everything Israel does (including serial genocide against the Palestinians), if you ever understood what most Israelis think of you, you would be wounded to the core of your being.

I don't know how "useful idiots" translates into Hebrew, but you catch my drift.

Mr Masot asked her: "Can I give you some names of MPs that I would suggest you take down?"

Ms Strizzolo replied that all MPs have "something they're trying to hide" and Mr Masot responded by saying "I have some MPs", adding "she knows which MPs I want to take down" before specifying "the deputy foreign minister".

2016: The Year of Russia’s Triumph – The Saker

2016 has been a fantastic year for Russia. Putin’s policy of slow, low-key and deliberate move and counter-move has proven to be extremely effective.

Just like European maps place Europe in the center of the planet, so do most western commentators look at the past year from a US/Europe-centered perspective. Which is fair enough. Furthermore, the AngloZionist Empire has just suffered two major disasters, the Brexit and the election of Trump.

The credit for the election of Donald Trump goes first and foremost to the American people to whom I sincerely believe the entire planet owe a heartfelt and loud “THANK YOU!!!!!”.

Not only did the British people defy the Empire and vote for a Brexit, but now the Imperial Homeland has “backstabbed” them by electing a patriot who is not interested in maintaining the global empire (or so he says, at least for the time being).

President Putin made a surprise attack:

He said that his government would not take retaliatory measures. Indeed, he went further by offering seasonal goodwill greetings to President Obama, his family and the people of America, as well as repeating invitations to the children of accredited US diplomats in Russia to festivities being held at the Kremlin.

BEWARE - From today, the Government is RECORDING everywhere you click online

December 30th marks the date that the Investigatory Powers Act, also known as the 'Snooper's Charter' officially comes into force, allowing the government to collect data on anyone.

The government says that the new laws will primarily be used to combat serious crimes such as terrorism, but campaigners have warned that it could lead to innocent people being convicted of offences they didn't commit.

The new legislation, described as "world-leading" by home secretary Amber Rudd, will primarily be used to carry out bulk email surveillance, as authorities look to monitor communications between suspects.

However it could also be used to monitor other personal information, including phone records and web browsing history, with web and phone companies required to store this information for 12 months.

The companies would also need to be able to provide police, security services and official agencies with access to this data whenever required.
