    George Papadopoulos, the Trump campaign volunteer targeted by the Deep State and foreign spies let loose on Twitter this week and claimed he was targeted by US allies and “Obama knew!” Papadopoulos tweeted on September 13th that the Brits met with him often before the 2016 campaign – While I have never met a Russian official in my life knowingly, the British government liked to meet me quite often throughout the campaign. Including Tobias Ellwood, who was right under Boris Johnson, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.— George Papadopoulos (@GeorgePapa19) September 14, 2018 Papadopoulos notified the FBI that he thought...

    Eight European countries at the United Nations, including five Security Council members, on Thursday called on Israel to reverse its decision to demolish the illegal Bedouin village of Khan al-Ahmar, AFP reported. Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Belgium, Poland and the Netherlands warned that the demolition of the village “would severely threaten the viability of the two-state solution”. “We therefore call upon the Israeli authorities to reconsider their decision to demolish Khan al-Ahmar,” the countries said in a joint statement released ahead of a council meeting on the Middle East. Khan al-Ahmar was built in the 1990s on land belonging...

    Theresa May's proposed new economic partnership with the EU "will not work", the head of the European Council has said. Donald Tusk said the plans risked undermining the EU's single market. He was speaking at the end of an EU summit in Salzburg where leaders of the 27 remaining member states discussed Brexit.
  • Putin dials back the rhetoric against Israel after downing of spy plane but still vows action

    Putin’s dialing down of the rhetoric is an effort to mask his intentions. He — Russia — still has the same foreign policy interests in Syria as he did before the plane was shot down, and those aren’t going to change anytime soon. When journalists asked him about the much more hostile statement of his Defense Ministry, which also vowed a retaliatory response, Putin stated clearly that it was “fully coordinated” with him (of course it was). He defined what ‘retaliatory’ meant. “The retaliatory measures will be directed above all to boosting the security of military men and installations in...

    The man suspected in the 2017 terrorist attack on London Bridge, which killed five people, had a grudge against both President Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May, his children told British authorities. Khalid Masood's children told British counter-terrorism officials that the 52-year-old English teacher had previously called May a "liar" and "sick," while frequently complaining about the "racism and rudeness" presented by Trump, NBC News reported Wednesday. Police statements indicated that Masood texted religious writings to a number of friends before he allegedly carried out the attack, which began with the striking of pedestrians on London Bridge and ended...
  • Why The U.S. Ranks At The Bottom In A Foreign Aid Index (According to this freelance writer)

    The United States' commitment to global development does not look good compared with that of other wealthy countries — and it's likely to get worse. According to an annual index released Tuesday by the Center for Global Development that ranks 27 of the world's wealthiest countries, the U.S. scored dead last on foreign aid contributions and quality — despite being the largest donor in dollar amount. That's because in 2017, it allocated a mere 0.18 percent of its gross national income for development assistance. That is well short of the 0.7 percent that wealthy countries have committed to strive for...

    On September 14, the open-source intelligence group Bellingcat and the investigative news website The Insider released passport data belonging to Alexander Petrov, one of the men identified by British authorities as a suspect in the March 4 nerve-agent attack in Salisbury, showing that his passport files contain various “top-secret” markings that seem to contradict his claims that he’s a mere civilian. Hours later, the newspaper Novaya Gazeta reported that the leaked passport records include yet another piece of evidence linking Petrov to Russia’s intelligence services: below one marking, the phone number 195-79-66 appears. This number, the newspaper says, is linked...

    A traffic warden is living in fear of reprisal after being savagely beaten "for doing his job." Charlie Weston was left lying helplessly on the floor as a group of men repeatedly stamped on his head after he approached a car to give it a ticket. The 21-year-old admits he feels "lucky to be alive" after the ordeal which happened in Birmingham and left his face splattered with blood. He had been inspecting cars in the road for 10 minutes when the incident unfolded. Charlie was kicked in the throat and had his head stamped on before his attackers allegedly...

    On the verge of a “national emergency,” regulatory experts from the National Health Service (NHS) Improvement body just released their latest review which reveals a crisis in workforce shortages. One in eleven jobs is vacant with nursing staff vacancies up 17% in only the last three months. As BBC Health reports, this reality comes after “sustained efforts by ministers and NHS bosses to tackle the shortages, including a new pay deal and recruitment and retention campaigns.” Leadership referenced the situation as painting a “bleak picture” to acknowledging the burdens of increased demand, employee shortages and financial pressures was making it...

    Let’s take Donald Trump both seriously and literally. When he says he wants to abolish all trade barriers, let’s assume he means it. Back in June, the President stunned his fellow heads of government at the Quebec G7 summit by telling them: “No tariffs, no barriers, that's the way it should be. And no subsides.” A world where all such distortions were removed from markets would indeed be vastly wealthier. We would all benefit, especially people on low incomes, who would gain the most from a fall in prices. Pretty much every mainstream economist, from both ends of the political...

    The Muslim Council of Britain is calling on the British government to ban renowned evangelist Franklin Graham because they allege his views on Islam and same-sex marriage violate the nation's hate speech laws. Graham, the president of Samaritan's Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, is scheduled to lead a series of religious gatherings beginning Sept. 21. "In the past the government has banned individuals whom they claim are 'not conducive to the public good.' Mr. Graham's remarks are on record and clearly demonstrate a hatred for Muslims and other minorities," the organization said in a statement. One government leader...

    LONDON, September 12, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A homosexual student group at Goldsmiths, University of London, is under fire for a series of tweets defending the idea of sending dissenters to “gulags” for forced re-education. The exchange began during a Twitter debate over “trans-exclusionary radical feminists” (TERFs), feminists who refuse to recognize men who “identify” as female to be "women." The group LGBTQ+ Goldsmiths had called for targeting feminist academics they considered to be TERFs, the Daily Telegraph reports. “The ideas of TERFS and anti-trans bigots literally *kill* and must be eradicated through re-education,” LGBTQ+ Goldsmiths claimed, then threatened to “arrange...

    London mayor Sadiq Khan has called for another referendum on Britain’s European Union membership, saying the prime minister’s handling of Brexit negotiations had become “mired in confusion and deadlock” and was leading the country down a damaging path. […] The backing of Khan, a member of the main opposition Labour party, for a second referendum will put more pressure on Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to change his opposition to the idea when the party meets for its annual conference in a week’s time. A second referendum, dubbed a “people’s vote” by its proponents, is not Labour party policy, although finance...

    Are we on the brink of a new war?... They will go to war without waiting for the facts to be checked, and without recalling Parliament..... he was asked about plans-now being openly discussed at high levels in Washington-for a devastating attack on Damascus. This will be in response to a supposed atrocity that has yet to take place but about which the Americans openly say they already have evidence-probably an alleged poison gas attack, in which we will see heartbreaking but unverified film of dead or dying children, from propaganda sources, and claims of multiple deaths from untraceable 'eyewitnesses'........

    Sarah's haunted face stares out under a red Islamic head-dress in her wedding photo. Beside her, guests eat cake while celebrating the marriage, conducted by the local mosque's imam at a terraced house in the Home Counties. Yet Sarah is not a willing bride. She is being made to marry a member of the gang that effectively forced her into sex slavery after abducting her in a Tesco car park in the English suburbs one autumn afternoon. Her captivity lasted for 12 long years. Within minutes of her wedding picture being taken, the white English girl was pushed upstairs into...

    One of the funnier comedy Trump videos on YouTube is a montage, made before he became president, of all the times Trump said China. It’s about three minutes long and is mesmerisingly hilarious. As a candidate, he talked about China ‘raping’ America. Funnily enough, that was exactly what Americans wanted to hear...Maybe Trump isn’t as stupid as he seems – and maybe his supporters aren’t as stupid as smug liberals assume. Forty per cent of Americans never leave their country, but they can see how it is being eclipsed by China. And US voters know that China doesn’t play by...

Never even having had a boyfriend, she was forced to marry and was raped minutes later by a man she’d only met a half hour earlier. Sarah was held captive and abused for 12 years whilst her family pleaded for help from police to find her. House...
  • Was Christopher Steele Disseminating Russian Disinformation to the State Department?

    Weekly Standard ^ | September 14, 2018 | Eric Felten
    When Christopher Steele was hired to compile his “dossier” on Donald Trump in 2016, he already had an extensive history of presenting private intelligence analysis to U.S. policymakers. The former British spy had for years been funneling reports on Russia and Ukraine to senior State Department Russia analysts. Materials recently turned over to Congress show that while Steele was giving memos to State he also maintained close ties to the billionaire Russian industrialist Oleg V. Deripaska. Some congressional investigators are thus concerned that his memos may have been a channel of Russian disinformation. Here’s how Steele got his work distributed...
