London Mayor Sadiq Khan gets heckled by Brexit protesters outside Parliament

Look who gets armed body guards while the subjects in his city have no right to self defense.

The comments on the YouTube video indicate that Londoners are completely fed up with him. Maybe next time when they vote they’ll remember that elections have consequences.

And man, I didn’t realize what a short man Sadiq is. Looks like he’s not even 5 feet tall.

Piers Morgan: The Left have become unbearable, and are fueling populism across the world

Piers Morgan, 54, is an English journalist, broadcaster and TV personality.

I was no fan of Morgan. He was especially loathsome when he hosted Piers Morgan Live on CNN from 2011 to 2014, after which he returned to the UK.

On the Ben Shapiro Show last Sunday, August 18, 2019, Morgan launched into a stinging critique of the contemporary Left which had gone viral on Twitter, which just goes to show even a self-identified, pro-gun control liberal like Piers Morgan has had enough with so-called “liberals”.

Morgan said (beginning at the 8:26 mark):

“I think a lot of people who should be impartial journalists and masquerade as impartial journalists are now drifting toward being celebrities. And right now in America, in Trump’s America, the only way to be a celebrated journalist is predominantly to be a liberal, Trump-hating journalist, and that’s where it gets dangerous.

When I look at CNN for example, when I was there, the standards and practices around impartiality were extremely, extremely rigorously enforced. You could not remotely be seen to…partial politically. Now I look at CNN, I just see open sneering at Trump 24/7…. Things have changed: when I was there, you couldn’t do that, and I think that’s problematic. America needs CNN to be impartial. You know you have MSNBC on the left, you have Fox on the right, people have always understood that. If CNN itself becomes partial and partisan, I find that a big problem.

I find it a problem some of their reporters want to be big stars. You know anchors, they’re gonna be stars because they’re anchoring. When you’re a White House reporter or correspondent, you really should be doing the late-night chat shows? I don’t think so. So I think that there’s a line there which is getting crossed more and more, which I think is a problem for American people and their ability to cut through all this and get to the truth….

I have never known it like it is now, and I think it’s being massively exacerbated by social media…. It feels like we’ve gone back 2,000 years and we’re back into tribes. You have it with Trump here in America where it’s just blind. You have to be in one tribe or the other. You’re not allowed actually to say well, on the one hand he’s done good things here, here, here, on the other hand I don’t like what he’s doing here. It’s everything about this man, everything he does and says, every time he breaks wind, it offends me. Or I love him and everything he does is fantastic even when Trump does something ridiculous….

The most important thing is to maintain the ability to have a democratic debate with people, and to sit with people that you fundamentally don’t agree with, and to listen to things you find fundamentally offensive, but you actually respect someone’s right to think differently to you….

It’s the inability to have a debate without wanting to cancel people, to wrech their lives, to make them lose their jobs…. [Referring to universities in the UK and Berkeley, CA de-platforming speakers, i.e., not allowing invited speakers to speak] What is the point of being at university if you’re not going there to be challenged and to have your own views challenged….

(41:40) The self-righteousness of people that lose elections or referendums [referring to the Brexit referendum] … they say ‘No, you’re too stupid, no. Actually we have to do this all over again, we should ignore the result of this election because I know more than you, I’m more intelligent than you, you’re stupid people. That’s where we’ve got to, and if that is accepted, where every result is simply declared null and void and Liberals, let’s be honest, get what they want, democracy dies….”

Shapiro then asks Morgan if Brexit and President Trump are part of generalized phenomenon of populism in other countries in Europe as well, e.g., Italy, of a resistance to a “generalized elite” — “sneering…people who want to control your life from top down”. Morgan said [42:31 mark]:

Populism is rising because Liberals have become unbearable, and I speak as a Liberal, okay. In my core, I’m probably more liberal than not although fundamentally I see myself as a journalist and I’d like to see both sides of all this and I can argue both. But Liberals have become utterly, pathetically illiberal, and it’s a massive problem. What’s the point in calling yourself a Liberal if you don’t allow anyone else to have a different view? You know this snowflake culture that we operate in, the victimhood culture, the ‘everybody has to think a certain way, behave a certain way, everyone has to have a bleeding heart and tell you 20 things that are wrong with them’. I just think it’s all completely skewed to an environment where everyone’s offended by everything, and no one’s allowed to say a joke….

So … suddenly where are we? The Liberals get what they want, which is a humorless void where nothing happens, where no one dare do anything or laugh about anything or behave in any way that doesn’t suit their rigid way of leading a life. No, thanks.

So what’s happening around the world? Populism is rising because people are fed up with the PC culture, they’re fed up with snowflake [inaudible], they’re fed up with everyone being offended by everything, and they’re gravitating to forceful personalities…. I don’t agree with all of it, but I understand why the Liberals, my side if you like, are getting it so horribly wrong. They just want to tell people not just how to lead their lives, but if you don’t lead it the way I tell you to. It’s a kind of version of fascism: You don’t live the life the way I’m telling you to, then I’m gonna ruin your life. I’m gonna scream abuse at you, I’m gonna get you fired from your job, I’m gonna get you hounded by your family and friends. I’m gonna make you the most disgusting human in the world, because he said a joke ten years ago.

That’s the attitude we’re operating in. It takes forceful personalities to rise above it. Donald Trump rose up and went like Godzilla: ‘Okay, you want to fight? I’m here!’ And guess what, millions of people in Middle America went, ‘That’s our guy! That’s our guy, he’s the one that’s gonna help us.’ Same thing happening across Europe.”

And how will the Left react to Morgan’s critique? To quote two commenters on YouTube:

CNN’s headline on Monday reads: “Alt-Right Piers Morgan Sits Down with White Supremacist Ben Shapiro and Attacks American Journalism in Hate Fueled Tirade.”

UK comedian Jo Brand says, “throw acid at politicians instead of milkshakes”

Because battery acid attacks are hilarious! Just ask the Muslim women who are real victims of acid attacks.

How progressive and tolerant!

From The Sun: NIGEL Farage has accused comedian Jo Brand of “inciting violence” after she said politicians should have battery acid thrown at them instead of milkshakes.

The telly star, 61, was appearing on BBC Radio 4 when she joked about recent milkshake attacks on politicians, which included one hurled at the Brexit Party leader.

Farage, who had a banana and salted caramel Five Guys milkshake thrown on him while campaigning in Newcastle ahead of the EU elections last month, called for police to take action over ‘incitement of violence’.

Speaking on the Heresy show last night, Brand said: “Certain unpleasant characters are being thrown to the fore, and they’re very, very easy to hate. And I’m kind of thinking, why bother with a milkshake when you could get some battery acid?”

She added: “That’s just me, sorry, I’m not gonna do it, it’s purely a fantasy. But I think milkshakes are pathetic, I honestly do. Sorry.

Responding to that today Farage said: “This is incitement of violence and the police need to act.”

Brendan Cox, whose Labour MP wife Jo Cox was murdered by a far-right fanatic in her own constituency in June 2016, tweeted: “I dislike Nigel Farage‘s politics profoundly. But I don’t think throwing stuff at politicians you disagree with is a good idea. It normalises violence and intimidation and we should consistently stand again it.”

Broadcasting watchdog Ofcom confirmed it had received 19 complaints from angry listeners since the show was broadcast.

The sick gag was met with howls of laughter from the studio audience and show host Victoria Coren Mitchell didn’t appear concerned by the remarks.

Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan said: “Disgusting. This is an incitement for people to throw acid at politicians. Shame on you, Jo Brand.”

Leave.EU tweeted: “Absolutely disgusting remark by so-called “comedian” Jo Brand, who suggested last night on @BBCRadio4 that we throw battery acid at our politicians.

“Is this sort of hate speech what we fund the @BBC for? Shameful!”

But fellow comedians defended the star, with Lee Hurst writing: “Jo Brand is a comedian. She has made a joke. You may not find it funny or you may find it funny. Comedy is subjective. If you criticise her because you like her target, but defend other jokes of a similar nature against targets you don’t like you are a hypocrite.

The BBC refused to apologise for the broadcast and said remarks on the comedy show were ‘not intended to be taken seriously’.

A spokeswoman said: “Heresy is a long-running comedy programme where, as the title implies and as our listeners know, panellists often say things which are deliberately provocative and go against societal norms but are not intended to be taken seriously.”

Failure of Polls: 2019 Australia federal election

Political polls are no longer reliable because they are no longer predictive of election results.

The UK Brexit referendum on June 23, 2016, in which 51.9% of those voting supported leaving the EU, was the first sign. 78% of phone polls had predicted that Remain would win; only two online pollsters, Kantar TNS and Opinium, forecasted a Leave victory just ahead of the vote. (Wikipedia)

The U.S. presidential election on November 8, 2016, in which polls had predicted a Hillary Clinton win, was the second sign.

Last Saturday’s Australian federal election is the latest indicator of the failure of polls.

On May 18, 2019, Australia conducted a nation-wide election to elect members of the 46th Parliament: All 151 seats in the House of Representatives (lower house) and 40 of the 76 seats in the Senate (upper house).

Unlike many other democracies, Australia has mandatory voting for all citizens aged 18 and over – or they risk a fine. This year has seen a record 96.8% enrollment rate. In contrast, the voter turnout for the most recent US and UK elections were an estimated 55% and 69% respectively. (BBC)

What this means is that in the case of Australia, the accuracy of pre-election polls would not be affected by voter turnout, which should lend even greater confidence in the accuracy of those polls. As the BBC confidently declared a day before the election:

Australians are voting in a closely-fought general election on Saturday. The poll will decide whether the conservative Liberal-National Coalition wins a third term or is replaced by a Labor administration led by Bill Shorten.

And what were the polls saying?

The graph below shows that although opinion polls have narrowed in recent weeks, the leftist Australian Labor Party still had the edge on a two-party preferred basis on the eve of election day.

The experts also predicted a Labor win:

  • Professor Sally Young, a politics expert from the University of Melbourne, said there was public cynicism about the major parties, and predicted that the bitter party infighting that led to Scott Morrison becoming PM only last August, was likely to harm the government’s standing with voters. Referring to Morrison’s ousting of his predecessor, Young declared: “They’re sick of the sniping and undermining. Knifing a leader – it never goes down well.”
  • Young also predicted that climate change would be a key election issue and that the government’s “lack of action on climate change” would be a critical factor in the election.
  • Citing unnamed “experts,” the BBC said that Morrison’s minority government “fears losing votes to more socially conservative minor parties and independents” in the northern state of Queensland, and is particularly vulnerable in Victoria in the south, where the “progressive” electorate had delivered a resounding victory to Labor in a state election five months ago.

Despite the polls and experts, and in spite of Morrison’s minority coalition government being consistently behind in the polls for the past three years, the government won a third term against the Labor opposition. As Wikipedia puts it:

The result of the 2019 election was in stark contrast to the aggregation of opinion polls conducted over the period of the 45th parliament and the 2019 election campaign. Apart from a few outliers, Labor had been ahead for the entire period, by as much as 56% on a two-party-preferred basis after Scott Morrison took over the leadership of the Liberal Party in August 2018—although during the campaign, Labor’s two-party estimate was between 51 and 52%.[67]

During the ABC’s [Australian Broadcasting Corporation] election coverage, election analyst Antony Green stated “At the moment, on these figures, it’s a bit of a spectacular failure of opinion polling.”—with the election results essentially a mirror image of the polls with the Coalition’s two-party vote at around 51%.[67]

CNN calls the election “a stunning turnaround after every opinion poll over the campaign pointed to a Labor victory. Analysts are now saying Labor lost an ‘unlosable’ election.”

To add insult to injury, not only did the leftist Labor Party lose the election, the formerly minority coalition government led by Morrison actually picked up the net two-seat swing it needed for a majority government. (ABC News)

Readers of FOTM had commented that they no longer answer phone polls. Nor do I.

We no longer respond to political polls because of our correct perception that, like the MSM, pollsters favor Democrats and are hostile to conservatives. I suspect also that many who still respond to polls don’t give honest answers, which is a prudent behavior given the many real instances of conservatives being publicly assaulted, denied service by businesses, and having their food and drinks contaminated by servers.

30 years ago, Jacob Rothschild predicted a global currency by 2018

On March 6, 1991, in a speech to Congress then-President George H. W Bush famously and very prematurely declared the beginning of a “new world order” following the Gulf War — the U.S.-led expulsion of Iraqi forces from Kuwait:

“Now, we can see a new world coming into view. A world in which there is the very real prospect of a new world order…. A world where the United Nations, freed from cold war stalemate, is poised to fulfill the historic vision of its founders. A world in which freedom and respect for human rights find a home among all nations.”


Three years before in 1988, in an essay in The Economist (which is partly owned by the Rothschild family), Lord Jacob Rothschild, now 82, predicted that in 2018 the world would be united under a single currency, the phoenix.
Under the global monetary union, called the “phoenix zone,” administered by a global central bank, national economic boundaries would dissolve. “Tight constraints” would be imposed on national governments, and there would be no national monetary policy. In effect, nation-states would lose their economic sovereignty, supplanted by a global government — a new world order — in fact if not in name.

Thanks to The Free Thought Project, below is an excerpt from Jacob Rothschild’s article, “Ready for the Phoenix,” The Economist, January 9, 1988, pp. 9-10.

Ready for the Phoenix
Thirty years from now, Americans, Japanese, Europeans, and people in many other rich countries, and some relatively poor ones will probably be paying for their shopping with the same currency. Prices will be quoted not in dollars, yen or D-marks but in, let’s say, the phoenix. The phoenix will be favoured by companies and shoppers because it will be more convenient than today’s national currencies, which by then will seem a quaint cause of much disruption to economic life in the last twentieth century.
At the beginning of 1988 this appears an outlandish prediction. Proposals for eventual monetary union proliferated five and ten years ago, but they hardly envisaged the setbacks of 1987. The governments of the big economies tried to move an inch or two towards a more managed system of exchange rates – a logical preliminary, it might seem, to radical monetary reform. For lack of co-operation in their underlying economic policies they bungled it horribly, and provoked the rise in interest rates that brought on the stock market crash of October. These events have chastened exchange-rate reformers. The market crash taught them that the pretence of policy co-operation can be worse than nothing, and that until real co-operation is feasible (i.e., until governments surrender some economic sovereignty) further attempts to peg currencies will flounder.
The New World Economy
The biggest change in the world economy since the early 1970’s is that flows of money have replaced trade in goods as the force that drives exchange rates. as a result of the relentless integration of the world’s financial markets, differences in national economic policies can disturb interest rates (or expectations of future interest rates) only slightly, yet still call forth huge transfers of financial assets from one country to another. These transfers swamp the flow of trade revenues in their effect on the demand and supply for different currencies, and hence in their effect on exchange rates. As telecommunications technology continues to advance, these transactions will be cheaper and faster still. With unco-ordinated economic policies, currencies can get only more volatile.…
In all these ways national economic boundaries are slowly dissolving. As the trend continues, the appeal of a currency union across at least the main industrial countries will seem irresistible to everybody except foreign-exchange traders and governments.In the phoenix zone, economic adjustment to shifts in relative prices would happen smoothly and automatically, rather as it does today between different regions within large economies (a brief on pages 74-75 explains how.) The absence of all currency risk would spur trade, investment and employment.
The phoenix zone would impose tight constraints on national governments. There would be no such thing, for instance, as a national monetary policy. The world phoenix supply would be fixed by a new central bank, descended perhaps from the IMF. The world inflation rate – and hence, within narrow margins, each national inflation rate- would be in its charge. Each country could use taxes and public spending to offset temporary falls in demand, but it would have to borrow rather than print money to finance its budget deficit. With no recourse to the inflation tax, governments and their creditors would be forced to judge their borrowing and lending plans more carefully than they do today. This means a big loss of economic sovereignty, but the trends that make the phoenix so appealing are taking that sovereignty away in any case. Even in a world of more-or-less floating exchange rates, individual governments have seen their policy independence checked by an unfriendly outside world.
As the next century approaches, the natural forces that are pushing the world towards economic integration will offer governments a broad choice. They can go with the flow, or they can build barricades. Preparing the way for the phoenix will mean fewer pretended agreements on policy and more real ones. It will mean allowing and then actively promoting the private-sector use of an international money alongside existing national monies. That would let people vote with their wallets for the eventual move to full currency union. The phoenix would probably start as a cocktail of national currencies, just as the Special Drawing Right is today. In time, though, its value against national currencies would cease to matter, because people would choose it for its convenience and the stability of its purchasing power.…
The alternative – to preserve policymaking autonomy- would involve a new proliferation of truly draconian controls on trade and capital flows. This course offers governments a splendid time. They could manage exchange-rate movements, deploy monetary and fiscal policy without inhibition, and tackle the resulting bursts of inflation with prices and incomes polices. It is a growth-crippling prospect. Pencil in the phoenix for around 2018, and welcome it when it comes.

Writing for The Free Thought Project, Jay Syrmopoulos points out:

[I]t must be noted that the creation of a global currency would give an inordinate amount of geopolitical capital to unelected international bankers, and subsequently take power away from the citizens of each nation and their respective governmental representatives….
Control over a nation’s money supply is, for all intents and purposes, the lifeblood of a state’s sovereignty – without this independence, the state only exists in name but is subservient to supranational powers whose interests lie outside of domestic and national political/economic concerns.
“Give me control of a nation’s money supply, and I care not who makes its laws,” said Mayer Amschel Rothschild, founder of the Rothschild banking dynasty.
Although the Rothschild family now generally keep a very low public profile, they still have significant business operations across a wide spectrum of sectors. While you may not find any one particular Rothschild on the Forbes’ most rich list, the family is estimated to control $1 trillion dollars in assets across the globe, thus having a strong voice across the geopolitical spectrum that many perceive as a hidden hand manipulating events silently from behind a veil of secrecy and silence.

Of course, since it is 2018, we now know that Jacob Rothschild’s prediction of 30 years ago did not come true, thanks to the Revolt of the Deplorables who, in 2016, elected a man named Donald Trump to the U.S. presidency, whose campaign promise is to “make America great again” by putting America’s national interests first, which got him eternal enmity from the globalists.
Trump did exactly that in the just-concluded G-7 Summit in Toronto, Canada, in which he fought for fairer trade agreements for the United States, instead of continue the massive trade imbalances and deficits of previous U.S. presidents — to howls from our supposed French, German and Canadian “allies”.

See “Trump won’t endorse G7 statement,” New York Post, June 9, 2018.

God bless President Trump, the wrench in the Rothschilds’ and other globalists’ machinations for a one-world government!

'Midsomer Murders' actor exploits fame to bash Brexit

I no longer watch American TV shows because so many actors, directors and producers are far Left in their politics. I boycott them because I object to their politics and because, simply put, I cannot suspend my disbelief when I watch them on TV or in movies.
That’s why I subscribe to Acorn TV and BritBox because:

  1. Unlike Hollywood, many British actresses of a certain age don’t get botoxed and face-lifted beyond recognition.
  2. I don’t know the actors’ politics.

One of the British TV shows I’ve been streaming is the long-lasting, quite ridiculous (because of the high body-count) Midsomer Murders, which is into its 20th season with a new detective at its helm, DCI John Barnaby, played by an actor named Neil Dudgeon.

Alas, I can no longer watch Midsomer Murders, having just discovered that Neil Dudgeon is another arrogant actor who exploits his fame to spout his left-wing politics.
In a recent tweet, on April 6, 2018, Dudgeon equates Brexit with “handing over control to the far right,” and the 17,410,742 Brits who had voted for Brexit “the far right” who are political allies of the dastardly Steve Bannon and Breitbart.
In another tweet, on March 14, Dudgeon equated Brexit with being like North Korea:

“The only way to have ‘all’ your sovereignty is not to participate in the globalised world. Not to compromise or agree or join in. Like North Korea maybe. That’s clearly a roaring success. And it’s because they have ‘all’ their sovereignty!”

On March 15, Dudgeon retweeted an American’s tweet that referred to President Trump as “that idiot in office now”.
On March 9, Dudgeon retweeted some Brit’s tweet claiming that his tax statement shows that the cost to him of remaining in the EU is paltry — 50 pennies a week. Addressing the 17,410,742 Brits who had voted for Brexit, Dudgeon disdainfully writes:

“Saving 50p a week for all this shit. You are out of your minds.”

On March 2, Dudgeon retweeted a tweet attributing the UK’s problems to the Tories, instead of immigrants.
On February 23, Dudgeon tweeted that a women’s art group that does “profane” embroidery is “A really fine thing”:


After calling Brexit voters “the far right” who are “out of your minds” and who want the UK to be like North Korea, on January 27, Dudgeon sanctimoniously and without a trace of irony retweeted James Melville’s tweet that:

“The Holocaust didn’t begin in the gas chambers. It began with the words of hate. Words matter.”

I can go on with more examples from intolerant, hypocritical Neil Dudgeon’s Twitter feed, but you get the point.

DOW drops 666 points after FISA memo release

Ever since Donald Trump assumed the presidency, the U.S. stock markets have been going gangbusters.
Just 16 days ago, on January 17, the Dow Jones industrial average surged more than 300 points to close above 26,000 for the first time in its 121-year history.
And yet yesterday, the Dow Jones industrial average plummeted 665.75 or 666 points to 25,520.96, the biggest one-day points drop in ten years, since Dec. 1, 2008 or the beginning of the Great Recession.

Kevin Dugan reports for the New York Post, Feb. 2, 2018, that “Stock markets had their worst day on Friday since the dawn of the Great Recession, as fears mounted that the Federal Reserve may be forced to act more aggressively to cool down an economy that’s heating up faster than investors expected.”
On a percentage basis, yesterday’s 2.5% drop in the Dow was the biggest since the day after the UK voted to exit the European Union — an event that sent markets in a free-fall the world over.
Prudential Financial chief market strategist Quincy Krosby said:

“We all know that many bull markets have ended by the Federal Reserve as they raise the rates to the point of slowing the economy down perhaps too much. It’s come on quickly and it caught the market off guard.”

Blah, blah, blah.
Krosby neglected, however, to inform you that yesterday, the Federal Reserve had met and decided AGAINST raising interest rates.
Dow’s steep fall yesterday was not a reaction to bad economic news. On the contrary, the U.S. had added 200,000 jobs in January, and wages rose 2.9%.
So what happened yesterday that could have triggered the largest stock market plunge in ten years?
The House Intelligence Committee’s release of the infamous FISA memo, which reveals how the Obama Administration, on the basis of an unverified “dossier” prepared by a former British spook known to be biased against Donald Trump, abused the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to get a court warrant to conduct electronic surveillance on a Trump advisor. As some had intimated, the contents of the memo should lead to not just the firing of senior FBI-DOJ officials, but their imprisonment.

See “Full FISA Memo released!!!

So who engineered yesterday’s stock market plunge?
On January 3, 2017, responding to MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow‘s description of  Trump as “taking these shots, antagonisms, taunting the intelligence community,” Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said something quite ominous:

“Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday of getting back at you. So, even for a practical, supposedly hard-nosed businessman, he’s [Trump] being really dumb to do this.”


Two days later, on January 5, 2017, former Sen. Rand Paul observed that Schumer “is speaking the truth there — better watch out. I think Trump knows about it. That’s why he has private security.” Paul said Trump “will have problems achieving” reform of the intelligence agencies “because there’s so many obstacles and he won’t know who really represents the CIA unless he is well attuned to the deep state because the real orders and assassinations” are given to the CIA by the deep state.

Richard Branson, billionaire Obama pal, accused of sexual assault

The Weinstein Effect continues.
Now it’s Richard Branson, 67, the English billionaire founder of the Virgin Group of more than 400 companies, including Virgin Atlantic airline.
Branson is pro European Union and anti Brexit. (See “Secret document kept truth about EU membership from Brits for 50 years“)
He is also a pal of Barack Obama, whom Branson invited for an extended holiday on his private Necker Island in the Caribbean after Obama (finally) left the White House. That was when this pic of gender-ambiguous Obama kite-surfing was taken.

James Beal, Simon Boyle and Chloe Mayer report for The Sun, Nov. 24, 2017, that singer Antonia Jenae, 44, said Sir Richard Branson “motorboated” her at an alcohol-fueled party in 2010 on the billionaire’s Necker Island — “burying his head” in her boobs and making a boat engine noise.
Jenae said Branson had been drinking but did not seem drunk, and that he also “begged” her to go topless.

Jenae, from Florida, is a backup singer in “superstar” Joss Stone‘s band, whom Branson invited to his home on Necker Island, which he’d bought when he was only 28 years old.

Jenae said:

“His behavior was disgusting. I feel like it was sexual assault. We were by the bar and he was saying bye to everyone. He came up to me and put his face in my breasts. He went ‘brrrrrr’ and just walked away. It was surreal, totally out of the blue. Joss and I were like, ‘What the hell was that?!’ Everyone was wondering why I wasn’t angry because I’m usually a firebrand. But I was just too shocked.
We’d spent the day chilling out, touring the island. We had lunch and dinner. We were in the pool and there was a big, beautiful statue of a goddess there with her boobs out. Richard Branson tried to get me to show him my boobs and I said: ‘No!’ I was wearing a one-piece swimsuit and at the time I was very heavy chested.”

Branson’s behavior was seen by Joss and other stunned onlookers. Jenae said she and Joss recorded a video shortly after to capture their astonishment. According to The Sun, “a source” confirmed that Joss remembers the incident.
Representatives of Branson released a statement denying any wrongdoing:

“Everyone appeared to enjoy their time on the island. Richard has no recollection of this matter and neither do his family and friends, who were with him on the island at the time. There would never have been any intention to offend or make anyone feel uncomfortable in any way and Richard apologises if anyone felt that way during their time on the island.”

Jenae says she is now speaking out following the Hollywood sex scandal because “This needs to stop. I want everyone else to know what Richard Branson did. I don’t want him to do this to anyone else. He is a man in a powerful position.”

In a CNN interview in October 2016, Branson said he’s terrified of the thought of Donald Trump becoming president of the United States because of “how dangerous it was to have somebody so vindictive in the White House,” and that he felt no choice but to speak out to “let people who believe that Trump is wonderful know that there is a side to Trump that is dangerous and rather unpleasant and certainly unforgiving.”
Branson also said “I don’t think he’s a great businessman” and that Trump’s “unpredictability would unsettle the markets”.
Below is an August 2017 Bloomberg graph showing the number of market highs divided by the number of years each president was in office (in Trump’s case, 0.53 years so far), ranked from highest to lowest:

Secret document kept truth about EU membership from Brits for 50 years

For 50 years, the British people were not told the truth of what their country’s membership in the European Community actually entails.
That’s the explicit instruction in a document known as FCO30/1048, dated April 1971, which had been locked away as “classified” under UK’s Official Secrets Act for almost 50 years, but is now declassified under the 30-year rule.
The document instructed the UK government to keep the British public in the dark about what membership in the European Economic Community (EEC) means, and predicted that by the time voters realize what was happening in about 30 years, it would be too late for the UK to leave.

Note: The European Economic Community (EEC), aka European Common Market, was the precursor to and renamed the European Union (EU) in 2009.

Lara Deauville reports for The Express, Nov. 24, 2017, that document FCO30/1048, authored by an unnamed senior civil servant, was prepared for Tory Prime Minister Edward Heath‘s Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).
Shockingly, almost all of FCO30/1048‘s predictions have come true — from the loss of British sovereignty, to economic-monetary-fiscal union with a common foreign and defense policy, and the over-arching powers of European courts.
FCO30/1048‘s author predicted that “Community law” would take precedence over British courts; that ever more power would pass away from the British Parliament to the European administrative center in Brussels, Belgium; and that the increased role of Brussels in the lives of the British people would lead to a “popular feeling of alienation from Government”.
In effect, EEC/EU membership was the greatest surrender of Britain’s national sovereignty since the Norman conquest of England in 1066.
FCO30/1048 instructed UK politicians “not to exacerbate public concern by attributing unpopular measures… to the remote and unmanageable workings of the Community,” and to preserve the impression that London was still calling the shots rather than an unelected body of foreign politicians. The document also correctly predicted the ruse would last “for this century at least” – by which time Britain would be so completely chained to Brussels it would be impossible to leave.
Christopher Booker, a writer and journalist who is a founder of the satirical magazine Private Eye, said about the author of the insidious document FCO30/1048:

“Here was a civil servant advising that our politicians should connive in concealing what Heath was letting us in for, not least in hiding the extent to which Britain would no longer be a democratic country but one essentially governed by unelected and unaccountable officials. One way to create an illusion that this system was still democratic, this anonymous mandarin suggested, would be to give people the chance to vote for new representatives at European, regional and local levels. A few years later, we saw the creation of an elected European Parliament – as we see today a craze for introducing elected mayors, as meaningless local figureheads.”

Annabelle Sanderson, a Brexit expert and former advisor to Nigel Farage, the leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP) from  2006 to 2009 and again from 2010 to 2016, said:

“Despite all the claims from politicians of many parties that the EU was not about becoming a central state this 1971 document shows that is exactly what the plan was. Arch Remoaners from Labour, Lib Dems and the Tories need to check this out and ask themselves why they are MPs if they don’t actually want Westminster to be in charge of this country. We voted for Brexit what needs to happen is a proper clean break from Brussels so we can once again become a sovereign nation with money being spent in this country on services we need and have Parliament and courts making and ruling on the laws.”

Born into a lower middle-class family, life-long bachelor Edward Heath was leader of the Conservative Party from 1965 to 1975, and became Sir Edward Heath in 1992.

In 2015, ten years after his death at age 89 in 2005, Heath was named in several police investigations into historical child sex abuse and satanic ritual abuse. Detectives said if he were alive, Heath would have been interviewed “under caution” in relation to seven out of 42 allegations, including the alleged rape of an 11-year-old, but that nothing should be inferred about his guilt or innocence.

28% of Brits think Jesus to be extremist

Jesus the “extremist”


 Wojciech Zdrojkowski reports for Breitbart that according to a July 2017 poll of over 2000 British adults on whether they considered certain figures to be extreme, 28% (more than one in four) of UK residents considered Jesus an extremist.
Dr. David Landrum, director of advocacy for the Evangelical Alliance, said that “The poll shows the scale of moral confusion in our society with the public having no way of deciding whether something is extreme or not.”
The poll’s other findings lend credence to Landrum’s interpretation that Brits are morally confused:

  • 25% thought Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was an extremist.
  • 20% thought the same of Mahatma Gandhi.
  • 36% thought it was extreme for the UK to leave the EU (Brexit), while 30% thought it extreme if the UK were to remain in the EU.
  • 41% found it extreme to believe marriage should be between a man and a woman.
  • 37% didn’t think it was extreme for children not to be assigned a gender at birth.

It’s not just ordinary Brits who are confused, a parliamentary report last year found that UK government ministers also “struggled to define extremism” and that “it was far from clear that there is an accepted definition of what constitutes extremism, let alone what legal powers there should be, if any, to combat it.”
In June 2017, Prime Minister Theresa May announced plans to set up a Commission for Countering Extremism because “There has been far too much tolerance of extremism in our country over many years – and that means extremism of any kind, including Islamophobia. This is why this government will act to stamp out extremism and hateful ideology, both across society and on the internet.”
Landrum fears the widespread confusion about the definition of extremism can create problems when trying to deal with it. He advises:

“Detached from terrorism and incitement to violence, extremism does not work as a litmus test for judging peaceful beliefs and opinions. Indeed, the government have tried and failed over the last two years to define extremism without any precision and this poll shows that the public share that confusion.
It therefore seems unlikely that a newly established quango, such as extremism commission, will solve such problems. It is not wise to foster a society where volatile public opinion can be used to determine what might be extreme or acceptable views.”

Meanwhile, TruNews tells us that another survey conducted by Premier Christian Communications of more than 12,000 “ordinary” UK Christians found that more than 90% of Christians in the UK believe their faith is being marginalized and not given the same respect as other religions in the UK.
