    One of the most controversial figures in British politics says he prefers Donald Trump to Hillary Clinton. George Galloway, the left-leaning politician who left parliament in 2015, wrote on Twitter Tuesday that he shared Susan Sarandon’s sentiments about the U.S. presidential election. The actress and Bernie Sanders supporter last week told The Young Turks that Clinton would be "more dangerous" than Trump as president, because his ideas had no chance of being implemented. “I believe in a way she’s more dangerous, except they’re both talking to Henry Kissinger apparently lately,” Sarandon said. "Her record — I mean, she did not...

    While “Jurassic World” swallows the box office, the White House has requested a copy of a more rarefied film based on the life of James Gralton — the only Irishman ever deported from Ireland, in 1933. Spies said President Obama and his family plan to watch “Jimmy’s Hall,” by social-realist UK filmmaker Ken Loach, on their upcoming Martha’s Vineyard vacation. (It’s PG-13.)

    Controversial former MP George Galloway is to seek election as the next mayor of London. The Respect Party leader, who has threatened a legal challenge over his general election defeat, declared his bid on Twitter. Mr Galloway posted a picture of himself sitting on an unmade bed with his young son and the slogan "Dad, you've got to do this. I've got your back!". "I'm standing for Mayor of London 2016," he added. On 7 May, Mr Galloway lost the Bradford West Commons seat he took from Labour, his former party, in a 2012 by-election. The seat was won by...

    George Galloway, the socialist firebrand best known in America for his condemnations of Israel and the Iraq War, was soundly defeated for re-election to Parliament in Thursday's British general election. Galloway, a former Labour member who won the seat for Bradford West in the northwest of England in a 2012 special election, was beaten by Labour's Naz Shah, a political newcomer who overcome childhood poverty, a teenage forced marriage and the imprisonment of her mother for killing an abusive partner. Shah had urged voters to reject Galloway because "we do not need a one-man Messiah to tell us how to...

    Notorious anti-Israel British MP George Galloway was hospitalized on Saturday after being assaulted in London. Galloway, who leads the far-left Respect Party, was posing for pictures in the UK capital when he was punched repeatedly by an attacker, who apparently "made reference to the Holocaust", a spokesperson told the media. The precise motive is not yet clear but police say they arrested a suspect, named as 39-year-old Neil Masterson of London, for religiously-aggravated assault, as well as common assault against a man who attempted to defend the radical MP. The suspect is due to appear at Hammersmith Magistrates' Court on...

    A small delegation of British Jews bravely made their way to Bradford, UK on Sunday, after notoriously anti-Israel MP George Galloway proudly declared the area Judenrein ("Jew-free"; German). The delegation, bearing Israeli flags and passports, marched to the Bradford Town Hall. The move was organized by UKIP candidate Rabbi Shneur Odze, who took to Facebook to thank participants Sunday. "Well guys - we made it," Odze wrote. "Some Israelis from London, Mandy Blumenthal, I and others, went to Bradford Town Hall with flags, Israeli passports et al." "I must confess to being rather anxious as to what kind of reaction...

    The longest sea bridge in the world at 20.2 miles long is the Donghai bridge that links Shanghai to Yangshan in China. A bridge from either Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland would have to be even longer than that. In 2007, a 21-mile rail bridge was proposed between Galloway, Scotland, to Belfast, Northern Ireland. The idea would have trains running from Dublin, through Belfast, over the sea to Scotland, and then down railways into London... "Four main routes have been proposed. Two run from Scotland to Northern Ireland - Campbeltown to County Antrim, or Stranraer to Belfast. Two...

    A week after accusing Israel of giving Al-Qaeda chemical weapons to use against civilians in Syria, British MP George Galloway was caught lying about his remarks during a debate in Parliament. … On Thursday, during a debate in the British Parliament on whether to take part in a military offensive against Syria, Galloway was challenged by Matthew Offord, a representative of Hendon in North London. Offord said he had received several e-mails from constituents on Galloway’s hateful remarks, then said, “I would find that very hard to believe that the honorable member said that, so would he like to take...

    The Pray In Jesus Name Project ^ | 5/20/13 | Dr. Chaps
    The U.S. Supreme Court just announced it will hear in October 2013 the case Galloway v. Greece, concerning freedom of speech and legislative prayer. In 2008 two Greece residents, Susan Galloway and Linda Stephens, filed suit against the town alleging that the town’s habit of having explicitly Christian prayers delivered prior to board meetings flouted the First Amendment. In August 2012, U.S. District Court Judge Charles Siragusa disagreed, ruling that prayers in Jesus’ name were not a violation of the U.S. Constitution. But a three-judge panel of the Second Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in May 2012 overturned Siragusa’s decision...

The vast majority of jihadis online, be they on forums or social networking sites[i], say nothing. Skillful translations and insightful analyses by definition tell us little about this potentially lethal yet silent majority."

I know it is fake because we are now into the third incarnation of the identity of the criminals who killed the marrty Rafiq Al-Hariri. The first accusation was against Syria. The second accusation was against Hizbullah. Now all the hostility against the Syrian regime is coming back, and we are returning to accusations of the Syrian regime and of Hizubllah. This...

    Madison - State Sen. Pam Galloway, who faces a recall election this summer, plans to resign from the Senate shortly, leaving an even split between Republicans and Democrats. "After a great deal of thought and consideration, I've decided to put the needs of my family first," the Wausau Republican said in a statement Friday. "My family has experienced multiple, sudden and serious health issues, which require my full attention. Unfortunately, this situation is not compatible with fulfilling my obligations as state Senator or running for re-election at this time." Her statement did not say when her resignation would take effect,...

    Madison - If primaries are held, voters would go to the polls on June 5 for recall elections involving Gov. Scott Walker, the lieutenant governor and four Republican state senators, under an agreement signed by a judge on Wednesday. The agreement also calls for primaries - or a general election in the event there are no primaries - to take place on May 8. As part of a stipulation entered in court, attorneys for the recall committees, their recall targets and the Government Accountability Board all agreed the state elections agency should receive an extension to certify petitions until March...

    MADISON — The challenges begin. Four Republican state senators targeted for recall filed challenges late Thursday, contesting signatures collected on petitions in the campaign. Just how many challenges were filed was unclear late Thursday — the candidates weren’t talking and the Government Accountability, or GAB, was busy filing the challenge documents. State Sen. Scott Fitzgerald, R-Juneau, in an earlier news release, said he would contest 4,300 signatures as invalid, more than meeting the threshold to halt a recall election. The Committee to Recall Scott Fitzgerald needed to collect 16,742 signatures from the 13th Senate District electorate to force a recall....

    MADISON — Four Republican state senators targeted for recall are expected to submit their challenges to the signatures that could result in voiding any elections. Today is the deadline for the senators to make any challenges to petitions filed with the Government Accountability Board. Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald has said he plans on challenging enough to stop the recall election against him. The other three senators haven't said how many signatures they will challenge. Those targeted senators are Van Wanggaard of Racine, Terry Moulton of Chippewa Falls and Pam Galloway of Wausau. Once submitted, it's then up to the...

    Being the number two chief of an ultra-minority party is no fun. So it is no surprise that state Rep. Donna Seidel, D-Wausau, the assistant Assembly Democratic leader, declared herself a candidate in the likely recall election against state Sen. Pam Galloway, R-Wausau. Galloway was first elected in 2010, when she upset then-Senate Majority Leader Russ Decker as part of an epic Republican wave that saw the GOP win large majorities in both the Assembly and State Senate. After last summer's Senate recalls cut the GOP Senate majority from a five-seat margin to a one-seat margin, Democrats have been able...
