    President Donald Trump declared himself the 'law and order president' Monday night as law enforcement officials used rubber bullets, tear gas and officers on horse back to clear out protesters so Trump could walk to an historic church across from the White House for a photo-op. 'I am your president of law and order,' Trump said in the Rose Garden as the split screen on televisions across the nation showed peaceful protesters being fired upon and cleared out 30 minutes before Washington D.C.'s curfew went into affect. 'The biggest victims of the rioting are peace loving citizens in our poorest...

    On July 23rd, the prestigious and world-renowned medical journal The Lancet published an editorial entitled “An Open Letter to the People of Gaza” signed by medical professionals around the globe. The essay uses inflammatory language to accuse Israelis of indiscriminately massacring Palestinian children, fabricating the reason for Israel’s military engagement in Gaza, and implying the use of gas to murder civilians. While there is always room for critique and dialogue, these extreme allegations are one-sided, unreferenced and unfounded. More shockingly, the authors state that since only 5 percent of Israeli academics signed a petition against the current military operation, the...

    he Chinese military has said it chased off a U.S. warship near a disputed set of islands in the South China Sea, but the Navy contended the vessel was acting within international law. Senior Colonel Li Huamin, the spokesman for the Chinese People's Liberation Army's Southern Theater Command, said in a statement Thursday by official military outlets that the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Mustin "illegally intruded" into territorial waters near the Paracel Islands, known to China as the Xisha Islands, earlier that day. As a result, Li said Chinese sea and air units were dispatched to "warn off" and...

    LONDON (Reuters) - Britain is prepared to offer extended visa rights and a pathway to citizenship for almost 3 million Hong Kong residents in response to China’s push to impose national security legislation in the former British colony. China’s parliament has approved a decision to go forward with national security legislation for Hong Kong that democracy activists, diplomats and some in the business world fear will jeopardise its semi-autonomous status and its role as a global financial hub. Britain, the United States, Australia, Canada and the EU have all sharply criticised the move. Foreign minister Dominic Raab said on Thursday...

    The sustained plunge in global oil prices has brought deep, unexpected shifts on the geopolitical landscape, with impacts felt in the Arctic and the Middle East, and in the fortunes of the American heartland and the future of the Russian-Chinese strategic alliance. A U.S.-engineered market truce has helped energy prices rebound slightly this month after flatlining in April, but analysts say reverberations will likely be felt for years to come as they chip away at the foundational international partnerships in the post-World War II era and create new alliances and rivalries. Analysts say there is no way the U.S. and...

Begin Text: Signatories to this statement reiterate our deep concern regarding Beijing’s decision to impose a national security law in Hong Kong. Hong Kong has flourished as a bastion of freedom. The international community has a significant and long-standing stake in Hong Kong’s prosperity and stability. Direct imposition of national security legislation on Hong Kong by the Beijing authorities, rather than through Hong Kong’s own institutions as provided for under Article 23 of the Basic Law, would...

    Jeffrey Epstein did not kill himself because he was preparing a multi-layered legal and media strategy to fight his case, the late pedophile's lawyer has claimed. David Schoen, who Epstein asked to lead his legal team in his final days, said he planned to mount legal and factual defenses to the sex trafficking allegations against him. During a five-hour meeting with Epstein nine days before his death, Schoen said Epstein was 'upbeat and excited' and looking forward to clearing his name.

    Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair has airily dismissed U.S. President Donald Trump’s leadership during the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, instead harking back to his work alongside Bill Clinton and Barack Obama as examples of how global inter-governmental cooperation can win the day. His remarks in an interview with NBC News last Friday followed an earlier intervention in the crisis when his own globalist think tank claimed it is “embedded in governments around the world,” as Breitbart News reported. In his most recent observations, he told NBC News he was worried about the lack of global coordination in tackling the crisis.

    Axing BBC Four to boost youth television will deprive the elderly and vulnerable who rely on the arts and culture channel, a TV historian has warned. The channel is under threat of being closed or filled with repeats as speculation grows that the broadcaster plans to plough money into programmes for younger viewers. BBC Four, which most nights has fewer than a million viewers with an average age in their sixties, faces having the plug pulled just as the over-75s prepare to lose their free TV licences in August.

    China and one-fifth of respondents in England agree, according to recent reports. It’s the old reliable, blame ‘em for everything group. That’s right: The Jews! It was only a matter of time. Via the Jerusalem Post: One in five English people believe that Jews created COVID-19 to collapse the economy for financial gain, a newly-released study by a team of researchers at the University of Oxford has revealed. The finding came as part of a wider survey in attitudes toward the virus and the measures taken to prevent its spread, which found that there was a strong undercurrent of mistrust over...

    The Brexit Party leader 'turned investigative journalist' took to the English Channel again on Tuesday morning to report on the increased waves of illegal boat migrants sailing from camps in France to the United Kingdom. We’ve given the French 61 million quid 'to stop' illegal boat migrants coming into British waters. What we witnessed again today, was the navy, the French navy, escorting them into our waters,” Farage said. Mr Farage said that he witnessed a French ship escorting a “rib” (a small rubber boat) loaded with 13 illegal migrants into British waters. In the video, the veteran Brexit campaigner...

    An 'infatuated' prison officer who had a sexual relationship behind bars with notorious criminal, Curtis "Cocky" Warren, has been jailed for two years. Stephanie Smithwhite, who has a tattoo of his name next to a rose, allegedly cut a hole in her uniform trousers for sex after 'falling in love with the wrong person', Durham Crown Court heard. The 40-year-old, who was working at maximum security HMP Frankland, denied the hole was for a sexual purpose, but the sentencing judge said it was hard to imagine why else it would be placed there.

    The woman behind the 1973 ruling legalising abortion in the US is seen admitting in a new documentary that her stunning change of heart on the issue in later life was "all an act". Norma McCorvey, known as Jane Roe in the US Supreme Court's decision on Roe v Wade, shocked the country in 1995 when she came out against abortion. But in new footage, McCorvey alleges she was paid to switch sides. The documentary, AKA Jane Roe, airs this Friday on the US channel FX. The programme was filmed in the last months of McCorvey's life before her death...

    Barack Obama would beat Donald Trump if he could run for president again by more than 10 per cent if an election were held today, a poll revealed Wednesday, as tensions between the former president and successor spiked this month. The survey, taken May 18-19, shows that there is still significant public support for the former president over the current White House resident by a margin of 54 per cent to 43 per cent. Progressive public relations consultant, Eric Schmeltzer, took $4,500 out of his own pocket to personally commission the poll with Public Policy Polling to see who would...

    I have been asked by a source in Britain to review the Ferguson model code for my opinion. Just so everyone has some idea, the original program used by Ferguson was “a single 15,000 line file that had been worked on for a decade” and by no means is this remotely sophisticated. I seriously doubt that Imperial College will want to go public with the code because it is that bad. To put this in some perspective, just the core to conduct basic analysis in Socrates is about 150,000 lines of code. It is so complicated, it takes a tremendous...
