    Angry commuters have pulled Extinction Rebellion protesters from the top of a Tube as activists disrupted services across London. At Canning Town station in east London dozens of commuters were seen pulling two campaigners, dressed in jacket and tie, from the top of a Jubilee Line Tube train after they unfurled a banner saying, "Business as usual = death". The pair used a ladder to climb onto the roof, prompting an immediate reaction from commuters, including one who threw his sandwich at them. A drink was also hurled at one of them. One Tube user reportedly shouted: "I need to...

    Climate change activists calling themselves “Extinction Rebellion” have been punishing London commuters for the past ten days. The stated goal of the protest was to “peacefully shut down all roads into Westminster in Central London and non-violently disrupt the government until our leaders agree to TAKE EMERGENCY ACTION NOW.” Today, things got decidedly less peaceful when a handful of activists climbed on top of a commuter train in the midst of the morning rush hour. People who were trying to get to work dragged the protesters off the train. From the BBC: Extinction Rebellion activists climbed on to trains...

    Sadiq Khans former policing adviser yesterday defected to the Liberal Democrats, saying his children were not safe on Londons streets because of knife crime. In a shock switch, Leroy Logan, a former police superintendent, said that he was quitting the Labour Party over the London Mayors record. He will now become policing adviser to the Lib Dem mayoral candidate Siobhn Benita, who has unveiled a five-point plan to tackle knife crime. Mr. Logan had been planning to stand as a Labour member of the London Assembly. He was an adviser to Mr. Khan during his 2016 mayoral campaign and drafted...
  • Just When You Think McDonalds Couldnt Get More Mechanical

    The idea behind fast food is speed and efficiency. When it comes to fast-food chains, McDonalds is always on the cutting edge of getting people fed quicklytoo quickly, some say. In the rush to gobble down food, much of the joy of eating is lost. Fast food is a soulless commodity that neglects the spiritual appreciation of flavor and taste. It can turn what should be a dining place into a biological fueling station. The bad news is that it has just gotten worse. Just when you think the fast-food giant has reached a peak of efficiency, it comes out...

    What happens when you cross a deviant misogynistic sexual fetish with people who are intellectually disabled? You get a sexually exploitative nightmare that is the equivalent to a turn-of-the-century freak show. As the mother of a son with Down Syndrome, I am all too aware of the challenges my son will face. Mostly, I am afraid of how other people will treat him. Even before he was born, he was discriminated against for having an extra chromosome. I was encouraged by the medical community to abort him. The world sees him as a burden and I just see him as...

    Gridlock on Americas roadways is increasing, according to the 2019 Urban Mobility Report published by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute in part due to job growth that is exacerbating the nations traffic woes. As a result, over that 26-year period from 1982 to 2018: The number of hours per commuter lost to traffic delay has nearly tripled, climbing to 54 hours a year. The annual cost of that delay per commuter has nearly doubled to $1,010. The nationwide cost of gridlock has grown more than tenfold to $166 billion a year. The amount of fuel wasted sitting in stalled...

    Text messages between former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page debating how much information to share with the Justice Department about a London meeting -- days after the bureau opened its initial Russia investigation -- are drawing fresh scrutiny as alleged surveillance abuse and the probes origins are investigated by three separate probes, Fox News has learned. On Aug. 3, 2016, Strzok wrote, "I think we need to consider the lines of what we disclose to DOJ. For example, the last stipulation notes we will not disclose [the] identifies outside the FBI.

    In a New York Times op-ed, assistant professor of human rights Kate Cronin-Furman called for the identities of U.S Border Patrol agents to be made public so as to shame them for their mistreatment of illegal migrants. The University College London professor wrote that she wants to expose the "midlevel functionaries who make the system run" in order to stop their activities. She started her piece with the observation that agents' identities are not hard to find. "The identities of the individual Customs and Border Protection agents who are physically separating children from their families and staffing the detention centers...

Speaking on President Trumps recent state visit to the United Kingdom at a Mayors Question Time session at the London Assembly, the Labour politician accused the American leader, Prime Minister Orbn, Deputy Prime Minister Salvini, Ms Le Pen, and Mr Farage of using the same methods from the old far-right playbook: picking on minority communities and...

    Terrorists linked to Iranian-backed Hezbollah were stockpiling bomb-making ingredients, including three tons of ammonium nitrate, in London in 2015 in what was described as a secret British bomb factory, the Daily Telegraph reported this week. The 2015 case was kept hidden from the public until now. The discovery of the explosives cache in 2015, and the subsequent decision to keep that information from the public, occurred during a period of intense public debate over the nuclear deal between the Obama administration and Iran.

    President Donald Trumps long-anticipated visit to Europe during the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion has now come and gone. He arrived in the United Kingdom on June 3 and departed for Ireland on June 5 before hopping across the channel for the official D-Day ceremonies in France on June 6. What I would like to draw attention to is what occurred immediately prior to Trumps arrival in the UK, and what subsequently happened immediately after his departure. Just prior to Trumps visit, UK Prime Minister Theresa May announced that she would be resigning. She made this announcement on May...
