  • Why Americans Should Celebrate The Brexit Vote

    The Daily Signal ^ | 6/24/2016 | Nile Gardner
    The momentous victory for the Brexit campaign signals a new era of freedom for the British people. After more than four decades of being shackled to the European Union (previously the European Economic Community), Great Britain has declared its independence. The vote for Brexit is a vote for sovereignty and self-determination. Britain will no longer be subject to European legislation, with Britain’s Parliament retaking control. British judges will no longer be overruled by the European Court of Justice, and British businesses will be liberated from mountains of EU regulations, which have undermined economic liberty.
  • Boris Johnson suggests 'part-Kenyan' Obama may have an 'ancestral dislike' of Britain

    04/22/2016 7:24:41 AM PDT · by Beave Meister · 28 replies
    Boris Johnson was accused of 'dog whistle racism' and likened to right-wing 'Tea Party' politicians in the US this morning after his attack on the 'part-Kenyan' Barack Obama. The Mayor of London spoke out against the US President after he urged British voters to stay in the EU and mentioned his African ancestry as he criticised the decision to remove a bust of Sir Winston Churchill from the Oval Office shortly after Mr Obama entered the White House. Mr Johnson - who is favourite to succeed David Cameron as Prime Minister - suggested the President got rid of the statue...
  • Patrick the Saint

    A fleet of 50 currachs weaved its way toward the shore, where a young Roman Brit and his family walked. His name was Patricius, the 16-year-old son of a civil magistrate and tax collector. He had heard stories of Irish raiders who captured slaves and took them "to the ends of the world," and as he studied the longboats, he no doubt began imagining the worst. The warriors quickly demolished the village, and as Patricius darted among burning houses and screaming women, he was caught. The barbarians dragged him aboard a boat bound for the east coast of Ireland. Patricius,...

    The chances of escalation from a proxy war to outright war just went to 11 on the Spinal Tap amplifier of sabre-rattling. A day after British and NATO pilots were reportedly given the green light to take drastic action against Russian fighter jets if they come under threat during missions over Iraq, Interfax reports that the Russian Defense Ministry has demanded clarification. Senior defence sources say it is just a matter of time before our fighters are involved in a deadly confrontation with Russian jets. The Chinese, it appears, are wholeheartedly behind Putin's efforts, judging by the following puff-piece from...

    Anti-abortion protesters are filmed being confronted by a local resident outside a London clinic, where a pregnant woman delivered a plea last week insisting they should stop "judging" women. VIDEO ON LINK Pro-choice protesters turned out with banners saying "my body, my choice", against campaign group Abort67, after Labour's shadow home secretary called for buffer zones around the clinics in a bid to protect women. Yvette Cooper said on Monday that she did not "want the kind of harassment and abuse that we've seen in the US imported in Britain". However, Lyndall Stein, who has visited the clinic for the...

Celebrity news from the United Kingdom: In April, Germaine Greer, the Australian feminist and author of The Female Eunuch, was leaving her house in East Anglia, when a young woman accosted her, forced her back inside, tied her up, smashed her glasses, and then set about demolishing her ornaments with a poker. A couple of weeks before that, the 85-year-old mother of Phil Collins, the well-known rock star, was punched in the ribs, the back, and the head on a West London street, before her companion was robbed. “That’s what you...

The plea by Cardinal Keith O'Brien, head of the Catholic church in Scotland, to be made in his Easter sermon, comes as the Anglican archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, appealed for more people to attend church this Sunday – even if they are "a bit vague" about religion....

    A Muslim man who raped women to 'teach them a lesson' for being on the streets at night was jailed indefinitely today because of the danger he poses to women. Sunny Islam, 23, who comes from a strict Muslim family, dragged his terrified victims - including a 15-year-old - from the street at knifepoint, bound and assaulted them during a two-month reign of terror. Police fear that Islam may have attacked many more.

    The BBC has been accused of bowing to political correctness after it emerged that it was discouraging the use of the terms BC and AD for fear of offending non-Christians. The Corporation's religion website states that it opts for the "religiously neutral" Common Era and Before Common Era, rather than Anno Domini (the year of Our Lord) and Before Christ. It goes on: "As the BBC is committed to impartiality it is appropriate that we use terms that do not offend or alienate non-Christians." But critics said the changes were meaningless because, just like AD and BC, the alternative terms...

    Sadly, I've been proved right. Britain IS a centre of terror. Tragically, our rulers can't see the truth So now we are all finally able to see just why Britain’s capital came to be known contemptuously as ‘Londonistan’. Some five years ago, I wrote a book by that name which laid out the extent to which Britain had become the global hub of Islamic terrorism outside the Muslim world itself. So bad was this phenomenon that the French secret service, which had tried in vain to alert Britain to the dangers, dubbed it ‘Londonistan’ in a sarcastic reference to the...

    A former Labour minister admitted today that political correctness had led Britain to offer shelter to violent extremists. Kim Howells, a former Foreign Office minister, said Tony Blair's government and other administrations had been afraid to criticise the conduct of radical preachers and others because they feared being accused of racism. He said the policy had been pursued even though there was plenty of intelligence about the "evil" intent of such extremists and that it was only reversed after the 7/7 bombings. Mr Howells also said that he had been unable to find a single imam willing to say publicly...

Both are evidence that failure to speak and act against Islamist threats due to fear of being called a racist or "Islamophobe" can lead to terrible suffering. While the missed signs concerning Major Hasan are well known, the UK scandal deserves attention as a study in official blindness.

Information about every Trident missile the US supplies to Britain will be given to Russia as part of an arms control deal signed by President Barack Obama next week. Defence analysts claim the agreement risks undermining Britain’s policy of refusing to confirm the exact size of its nuclear arsenal.

    Net migration to the UK rose in the year to March 2010 because fewer British people left the country, according to the latest estimates. The figures indicate 215,000 more people came to live in the UK than moved to another country. The Office for National Statistics figures come days after the government outlined its plans to cap immigration. Ministers want to reduce net migration to "tens of thousands" a year by 2015. The plan currently involves cutting the number of visas available to skilled workers from outside Europe - although ministerial advisers say the target cannot be met by just...

"I really liked her and, of course, was as big a sucker for a beautiful princess as the next man: but I was wary too," Blair wrote, saying he was on guard against her "wildness of emotions," referring to her as an "unpredictable meteor." In Blair's "A Journey," he discusses his meeting with Diana a month before her tragic death in a 1997 car crash to tell the Princess of Wales that her relationship with millionaire Egyptian playboy Dodi Fayed was...

    At last, we are having the right argument for our time. Virtually everybody who is in touch with political reality now accepts that the old contest – socialism vs capitalism – is over. We all believe, with greater or lesser degrees of enthusiasm, in free-market economics. So the real source of contention that remains is the size and role of the state. Anyone who thinks that this is a puny arena – that the boundaries of debate have shrunk to a less inspirational, purely managerial scale – is mistaken. The passion with which those on the Left are now defending...

    A few months ago, I wrote “The Danish Civil War”, a fictional scenario which served to structure a consideration of various issues relating to the rise of Islam in Europe and the likely consequences thereof. The essay finished with the conclusion that Islam constituted an existential threat to the survival of European civilization, and that Islam’s influence on Europe therefore needed to be eliminated. It further concluded that, logically speaking, the various ways of achieving this goal could be broadly subdivided into three categories: 1) inducing Muslims to leave of their own free will, 2) mass deportations, and 3) genocide....

    Labour threw open Britain's borders to mass immigration to help socially engineer a "truly multicultural" country, a former Government adviser has revealed. The huge increases in migrants over the last decade were partly due to a politically motivated attempt by ministers to radically change the country and "rub the Right's nose in diversity", according to Andrew Neather, a former adviser to Tony Blair, Jack Straw and David Blunkett. He said Labour's relaxation of controls was a deliberate plan to "open up the UK to mass migration" but that ministers were nervous and reluctant to discuss such a move publicly for...

    The country's shambolic immigration laws were under the spotlight yesterday after the High Court ordered the release of a prolific criminal who has been fighting deportation for three years. A judge ruled that the 'undesirable' immigrant, who 'embarked on a criminal career' in the UK and still poses a threat of further offending, must be freed from detention. The High Court was told Ahmed Daq, 32, must be released on bail because the Home Office has already held him for three years to facilitate his removal from the UK but there is still no prospect of deportation.

    Iranian media reported today that authorities have detained eight local employees of the British embassy in Tehran for what is described as their alleged role in post-election protests. The reports by state-run TV and the semi-official Fars news agency provided no further details and could not be verified independently. Iran's rulers have accused the west of stoking unrest following a bitterly disputed June 12 presidential election, singling out Britain and the US for alleged meddling. Last week, Iran expelled two British diplomats, prompting the expulsion of two Iranian diplomats from Britain. Opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi alleges massive fraud in...

His assertion was dismissed, both explicitly by politicians (including Conservatives) who denied the existence of no-go areas...

    Today Jacqui Smith unveiled what the Government claims is 'one of the most comprehensive and wide ranging approaches to tackling terrorism in the world'. The document, named Contest Two, talks at length of the need to 'challenge those who reject the rights to which we are committed, scorn the institutions and values of our parliamentary democracy, dismiss the rule of law and promote intolerance'. Really? What a pity it has taken years of dangerously misguided pandering to extremist groups - and £100 million of taxpayer's cash - before Ministers reached such a blindingly obvious conclusion. For, make no mistake, pandering...

    The growing influence of Islam in the UK education system is manifesting itself in teachers being sacked and being forced out of their jobs if they oppose a greater role of this religion in British state schools. A High Court ruling has awarded Erica Connor the former head teacher of New Monument School a figure of £400,000 due to "the campaign by two Muslim governors to give Islam a greater presence in a state school". A campaign to oust Connor, it is reported resulted from Muslims at the school who accused the popular head teacher of "Islamophobia" which caused stress...

    Imagine that you had fallen into a coma the night Tony Blair was elected, and now woke up during the last days of New Labour – what differences would you notice around you? The most striking would be the change in women's fashion. Back in 1997 the country was coming out of recession and the downbeat grunge look, and young ladies were starting to wear short skirts and plunging necklines. Twelve years later and you'll notice the women are dressed more conservatively - far, far more conservatively. Take a tour of any of inner London borough and see how many...

    The NHS is offering to reverse female circumcision amid concerns that there are 500 victims a year with no prosecutions The NHS is to advertise free operations to reverse female circumcisions, with experts warning that each year more than 500 British girls have their genitals mutilated. Despite having been outlawed in 1985, female circumcision is still practised in British African communities, in some cases on girls as young as 5. Police have been unable to bring a single prosecution even though they suspect that community elders are being flown from the Horn of Africa to carry out the procedures.

    Radical Muslims get special treatment, says Ruth Dudley Edwards The Government's neurotic placating of Islamists has not yet led to the censorship of tabloids for giving vent to occasional outrage. "Hate for Heroes: Muslims in vile demo", declared yesterday's Sun, rightly furious that in Luton 15 or so youths had screamed "terrorists" at a homecoming parade of the Royal Anglia's 2nd Battalion and waved banners calling the soldiers baby-killers and butchers. Other newspapers showed a group of watching women enveloped in abayas and niqabs. In some ways the silent women were the more potent image of what disturbs readers of...

    THE HAGUE, 12/03/09 - The cabinet has ignored a motion in which the Lower House almost unanimously called upon it to complain in the European Union about the United Kingdom's refusal to admit MP Geert Wilders. At the same time, however, the House is accepting that its motion is disregarded. A month ago, Party for Freedom (PVV) leader Geert Wilders could not enter the UK because the British government decided that his criticisms of Islam made him a threat to public safety. The Dutch government expressed its objections, though modestly, calling Wilders' refusal "very regrettable" rather than unacceptable. It but...
  • Brits Officials Can't Get Obama Folks on Phone, U.S. Media Not Picking Up Either

    If the snub of British PM Gordon Brown at the hands of President Obama and his wife weren't enough, now British Cabinet Secretary Sir Gus O'Donnell is saying that Downing Street is finding it "unbelievably difficult" to get hold of officials from Obama's administration. British officials can't seem to ever get past the administration's answer machines as they call here to try and coordinate plans for the coming G20 summit.
