Regardless of the extent to which global fear mongers are right about the economic catastrophe that will hit every shore of the world after the Brexit, the most significant fact of the Brexit will be that the UK was the first nation to start the inevitable break-up of the EU. I have said since its beginning it cannot and will not hold together.
If you read the presstitute media, Brexit—the referendum tomorrow on the UK’s exit from the EU— is about racism. According to the story line, angry rightwing racists of violent inclinations want to leave the EU to avoid having to accept more dark-skinned immigrants into England.
Interesting development. According to The Telegraph, the German Minister for Foreign Affairs, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, has criticised NATO for "sabre-rattling and warmongering" against Russia with its recent military exercises in Poland and the Baltics. Not a good idea, he thinks.
Brendan Cox : Statement following the tragic killing of his wife Jo—(Helen Joanne, Labour MP for Batley and Spen)
"Today is the beginning of a new chapter in our lives—more difficult, more painful, less joyful, less full of love. I and Jo's friends and family are going to work every moment of our lives to love and nurture our kids and to fight against the hate that killed Jo.
A horrific attack unfolded this week when Omar Mateen entered a nightclub in Orlando, Florida before allegedly opening fire killing 50 and injuring scores more. Mateen would eventually be gunned down himself by police.
At face value it appears to be another "extremist" attack—an extension of America’s ongoing "War on Terror." In reality Mateen is instead an extension of America's use of terrorism as a geopolitical tool to fight its enemies abroad and maintain paralyzing fear, division, and hysteria at home.
Yesterday, during an eight-hour car journey from Lancashire down to Dorset, I took the opportunity to listen to Mike Hopkins of Fight The Lies Radio talking about the issue of—and this is my title for it—'Conspiracy Theories and the Christian'. I'm glad I did; I enjoyed it very much, and Mike made a great travelling companion. Speaking much from his own experience, Mike makes many keen observations that I think people might find helpful. So, if you have time, give it a listen!
According to Premier, the Christian charity 'Festive' has confirmed that a UK college of further education has barred a Christian union from meeting on the grounds that it is "prohibited under the government's Prevent scheme." At the moment, there's very little information about this, so I can't say anything definite, but it certainly sounds alarming.
"At the moment you start trying to use the law against opinions then you are moving from a free society into an unfree society. Since the first Queen Elizabeth said, "I do not wish to make windows into men's souls", it's been our principal: You can be punished for what you do, you cannot be punished for what you think, and you can't be punished for what you say unless it is incitement to crime. And as long as you maintain that boundary you are a free country.
When I chatted with the "Nephilim Boys" for the New Year's Day episode of TMR, I thought that Flat Earth Theory couldn't last much longer—and I still suspect it hasn't got enough legs to run for more than a year or two (?)—but videos still seem to be coming out on YouTube at quite a rate. So, it's great to see another couple of good debunking videos from FiveRedPears—straightforward, simply presented and effective.
