    Wikipedia - Charles James Napier ^ | 1851 | William Napier
    On satiNapier opposed sati. This was the custom of burning a widow alive on the funeral pyre of her husband. Sati was rare in Sindh during the time Napier stayed in this region. Napier judged that the immolation was motivated by profits for the priests, and when told of an actual Sati about to take place, he informed those involved that he would stop the sacrifice. The priests complained to him that this was a customary religious rite, and that customs of a nation should be respected. As recounted by his brother William, he replied: "Be it so. This burning...
  • Even the British Gov't are Now Saying that the Globalists are Interfering in the Democratic Process

    British Prime Minister, Theresa May, has suggested (in fact, outright accused) that Globalist figures both at the head of European nations and within the European Union (EU) Commission are seeking to derail the upcoming, June 8th, General Election in an effort to sink the Brexit position. Speaking to press in front of Downing Street, just after informing the Queen of the dissolution of Parliament (a formality before each election), she launched a tirade much in the style of “Mr. Brexit” himself, Nigel Farage. She said: “The European commission’s negotiating stance has hardened. Threats against Britain have been issued by European...

    The Zimmerman Telegram finally prompted the decision Great Britain had been wishing for since the sinking of the Lusitania in May 1915. The text asked the Mexican government to enter the war on the side of Germany, if the U.S. declared war when Germany resumed unrestricted submarine warfare in February 1917. The German ambassador offered for them to make war and peace together, offered generous financial support, and to sustain an understanding Mexico was to reconquer the lost territory in Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. The British were monitoring messages neutrals such as the U.S. and Sweden were improperly forwarding...
  • The London Terrorist Was British Born; But that Doesn’t Mean Mass Immigration Was Not a Factor

    The MSM are engaged in a full on operation to defend mas immigration in light of Wednesday’s London terror attack. Articles about Nigel Farage, Marine Le Pen and others, condemning their stances on mass immigration have been rife. But if we consider the types of communities that are being reshaped and segregated by this process, we can see that for “home-grown” terrorists, this is what divides them from the society they were born into. A quick look at demographic charts for the UK, shows that the Muslim population is growing rapidly (the 80 page report link is actually prepared by...

    Via the Daily Wire, that’s quite a claim. The president of the United States using a foreign intelligence agency to spy on the other party’s presidential candidate, for the obviously illicit purpose of erasing any domestic paper trail of his actions? “Scandal of the decade” material. And yet it falls not to the Fox News investigative team to break the story but to legal commentator Andrew Napolitano — and not on one of Fox’s marquee shows like O’Reilly or Tucker but on Fox & Friends and Martha MacCallum’s program. You’d think a scoop like this would be in 50-point font...

    In one of World War II’s most spectacular raids, the Royal Navy and British Commandos virtually ensured that the battleship Tirpitz would never venture into the Atlantic. As the spring of 1942 approached, the British Admiralty had its hands full with the Battle of the Atlantic, which had been raging for two and a half years. U-boat wolf packs, surface raiders, and warplanes had sent about eight million tons of Allied shipping to the bottom, and the situation was getting worse. Slipping out from their havens in the western French ports of Brest, Lorient, La Pallice, Bordeaux, and Saint-Nazaire, the...

    Geordies are known to be some of the friendliest people on the planet but, get on our nerves, and we can quickly put you in your place. It’s been confirmed Tyneside was the birth place of the word ‘charva’ and you can barely walk through Toon on a Friday night without hearing someone being described as a ‘workyticket’. Here’s a look at some of the best Geordie put-downs. Charva/Charv Usage: “How man, have a deek at them charvas gannin’ radgie owa there”. It’s basically the Geordie word for ‘chav’. The Oxford English Dictionary’s online service confirmed the term was born...

    As the clock strikes three, the low notes of the organ rumble softly round the chapel. The last of the winter sunshine catches the greens, golds and deep reds of the stained glass windows, while the half-light of 1,000 candles illuminates the glorious fan-vaulted ceiling. The building is packed, as it is every Christmas Eve — and yet an expectant hush has descended. Only the microphones hanging low above the pews bear witness to the millions across the world who also listen and wait.

    Britain should apologize for its 1917 declaration endorsing the founding of a Jewish homeland in Palestine, and should recognize Palestine as a state, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas told the United Nations General Assembly on Thursday. Abbas said that the Palestinian people had suffered greatly because of the Balfour Declaration, in which Britain said it favoured the establishment of a national home for the Jewish people in Palestine but that this should not undermine the rights of others living there. “We ask Great Britain, as we approach 100 years since this infamous declaration, to draw the necessary lessons and to bear...

    The long-lost ship of British polar explorer Sir John Franklin, HMS Terror, has been found in pristine condition at the bottom of an Arctic bay, researchers have said, in a discovery that challenges the accepted history behind one of polar exploration’s deepest mysteries. HMS Terror and Franklin’s flagship, HMS Erebus, were abandoned in heavy sea ice far to the north of the eventual wreck site in 1848, during the Royal Navy explorer’s doomed attempt to complete the Northwest Passage.

Here's an ISIS story that will make your day! This is one time you will actually appreciate how useful the burka can be! British special forces troops donned the full-length Islamic dress to sneak undetected through the ISIS' de facto capital Raqqa and take down their terrorist commander, news reports. The eight-man SAS squad also eliminated several jihadi fighters after lifting up their burkas and opening...

    An American woman was killed and five other people injured in a stabbing attack in London’s Russell Square by a Norwegian man of Somali origin who was arrested after the incident, authorities said. "So far we have found no evidence of radicalization or anything that would suggest the man in our custody was motivated by terrorism," Rowley said. He said the woman who died was a 60-year-old American, and the five injured people are British, American, Israeli and Australian. None had life-threatening injuries. Two remain in a hospital, while three others have been discharged.

    A rare and extraordinary photo album documenting a British army regiment in the the Boer War has been discovered after more than 100 years. The album contains more than 150 black and white images of the First Battalion Rifle Brigade and provide a fascinating record of their battles with the Boers in South Africa from 1899 to 1902. The annotated images show a large parade of men before embarking on a ship on the Isle of Wight to take them to South Africa in 1899.

    Which is why the elite don't see what the problem is To listen to the howling and wailing from the political and media elites, you’d think the British people were forcing their government to close all the hospitals and burn all the schools down. The reaction to Britain’s exit from the European Union has been that over-the-top hysterical. The British Empire survived for many centuries before anyone ever conceived of the EU – which was only established in 1993 – and I think it can probably do just fine once again not being a member of it. But you’d never...

    President Barack Obama stands by his comment that Britain would move to the back of the queue when it comes to trade deals with the United States if it left the European Union, the White House said on Friday. "Obviously, the president stands by what he said and I don't have an update of our position," White House spokesman Eric Schultz told reporters at a briefing. Obama urged Britain to remain in the EU when he visited London in April and warned that a trade agreement between the two countries would not happen anytime soon if Britain left the bloc.

    A British Special Air Service (SAS) sniper took out two Islamic State bombers with a single shot, saving hundreds of lives in the process. The SAS sniper took his shot from just over half a mile away, killing the terrorist driver in a split second. But the story doesn’t end there. The bullet passed through the driver’s head and also hit his accomplice in the neck — an incredible feat, given these two targets were moving.

    Sadiq Khan, London’s first Muslim mayor, announced Monday that “body shaming” advertisements will no longer be allowed in London’s public transport. “As the father of two teenage girls, I am extremely concerned about this kind of advertising which can demean people, particularly women, and make them ashamed of their bodies. It is high time it came to an end,” Khan said. The mayor added, “Nobody should feel pressurised, while they travel on the Tube or bus, into unrealistic expectations surrounding their bodies and I want to send a clear message to the advertising industry about this.” Khan was not clear...

    The BBC has warned English football fans not to dress as crusaders when attending the Euro 2016 tournament this summer as they might cause offence to Muslims. The advice comes via their ‘iWonder’ website, aimed at a younger audience, which asks such pressing questions as “Was Shakespeare a feminist?” and “How green is my commute?” Posing the question: “Is it wrong to dress as a crusader for an England match?” the answer appears to be a resounding “yes”. “Crusaders were the perpetrators of violent attacks across Europe and the Middle East on Muslims, Jews and pagans,” the website intones, suggesting...
