    BORIS Johnson could go to prison if he ignores a law that delays Brexit, the former Director of Public Prosecutions warned today. The PM had insisted he would "never" postpone the looming October 31 deadline, despite being dealt a major blow yesterday when the Lords approved legislation blocking a No Deal Brexit. The bill orders Mr Johnson to ask for a Brexit delay until January 31 next year if no agreement has been reached by October 19 and MPs do not back No Deal. And the Prime Minister was today warned by the former Director of Public Prosecutions Lord MacDonald...

    Modern continental Europe keeps trying to solve its political problem — and then to impose its solution on everyone within reach. Recognizing this historical process can help us understand European anti-Americanism, strongest perhaps in Germany. America created the Europeans' political predicament, and we keep preventing them from adopting the solutions they come up with. America created the Europeans' political problem by the magnificent example of the American Revolution and the astonishing, world-changing success of America. In an interesting version of the story of the emperor's new clothes, rule by hereditary monarchs, hereditary aristocracies, and established churches was suddenly revealed to...
  • 'Nothing More than a Slut, a White Whore!'-How the Left validates Islam’s sexual fantasies

    How the Left validates Islam’s sexual fantasies and victimization of Western women. Raymond Ibrahim is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center. Western women are to blame for being raped by Muslim men.  Such is the latest position—the latest apologia—being offered by those Western elements dedicated to exonerating undesirable Muslim behavior, particularly in order to continue taking in more Muslim migrants. According to a August 9, 2019 report, “in the Swedish city of Uppsala … four women were raped in as many days….  Two ‘completed rapes’ took place last weekend, with another attempted rape on Saturday night, and another sexual...

    Boris Johnson faces a showdown in Parliament later after No 10 officials warned he would call for a snap general election on 14 October if MPs succeed in seizing control of Commons business. Rebel Tories and Labour MPs are planning a bill to stop the UK leaving the EU on 31 October without a deal. Mr Johnson said he did not want an election, but progress with the EU would be "impossible" if the MPs win. Jeremy Corbyn said the Labour Party was ready for a general election.
  • Count on Trump to defend free speech from global censorship

    President Trump deserves enormous credit for his exceptional commitment to free speech at the G7 summit in Biarritz, France. Foreign leaders, like our own illiberal, liberal activists, are chomping at the bit to introduce ever more online censorship. At the G7, European leaders introduced a measure that would have drafted tech companies into the role of government censors, forcing them to police online content and remove anything that bureaucrats deem to be insensitive. Emmanuel Macron struggled in vain to conceal his disappointment as he announced that the United States had refused to sign on to his pet G7 compact, which...

    German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier on Sunday asked Poland’s forgiveness for history’s bloodiest conflict during a ceremony in the Polish city of Wielun, where the first World War II bombs fell 80 years ago. “I bow my head before the victims of the attack on Wielun. I bow my head before the Polish victims of Germany’s tyranny. And I ask forgiveness,” Steinmeier said in both German and Polish. “It is the Germans who committed a crime against humanity in Poland. Anyone who claims it is over, that the national-socialists’ reign of terror over Europe is a marginal event in German history...

    Iranian judoka Saeid Mollaei has requested political asylum in Germany after being forced to throw a match to avoid having to face an Israeli opponent. Israeli judoka Sagi Muki made history Wednesday when he became the first Israeli to win the gold medal at the the Judo World Championship finals in Japan, defeating Belgian opponent Matthias Casse. Mollaei had received a phone call from his mother in Iran instructing him to throw his match against Georgian Judoka Matthias Casse so that he would not have to face Muki in the semi-finals. Moallei, who has criticized his country's policy of refusing...

    Grainy images of 70,000 protesters in Leipzig carrying candles and chanting "Wir sind das Volk" -- "We are the people!" -- were beamed across the world on October 9, 1989. The rally was a turning point in the fall of the Iron Curtain a month later. Kühne was one of the demonstrators who, in his words, "longed for a free and united country." Then a 21-year-old locksmith working at the state railway company, he said the uprising in his hometown was "the greatest thing I've ever experienced." Today he is again drawing inspiration from Germany's peaceful revolution -- this time,...

    The Czech government has proposed a bill stating that ordinary citizens with a weapons permit can engage and shoot to kill terrorists, reports NTB.

According to the agency, the Interior Ministry has submitted a bill to the National Assembly, and it is hoped that it will be adopted and taken into effect within the next year. Interior Minister Milan Chovanec justifies the proposal with what we have...

    It sounded like a historical moment was in the offing. For the first time, Europe’s finance ministers were seriously planning on publicly denouncing tax havens by presenting a black list of countries that lure companies through tax-saving schemes. French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said the countries on the list were “not doing enough to fight tax evasion.” Fellow Frenchman Pierre Moscovici, the European Union’s commissioner for economic and monetary affairs, called for vigorous sanctions. […] That was one and a half years ago, and that momentum has largely disappeared. This is partly because the black list had several fundamental...

    On Sunday, Israel's Ministry of Strategic Affairs and Public Diplomacy made public a lengthy new document entitled, "Terrorists in Suits: The Ties Between NGOs Promoting BDS and Terrorist Organizations." Israel released the report to demonstrate "how terrorists came to hold key positions in NGOs promoting the Boycott Divestment and Sanction (BDS) campaign against the State of Israel; and how, through these NGOs, they exploit Western governmental funding, philanthropic foundations, financial platforms and civil society to advance their goal of dismantling the State of Israel." NGOs, or non-governmental organizations, are hotly contested in the Israeli public discourse. Anti-Israel NGOs are so...

    Fresh from her transatlantic sailboat crossing, teen climate activist Greta Thunberg was joined by hundreds of American teenagers on Friday at a protest outside the United Nations headquarters in New York City. They carried hand-drawn placards with messages such as "United behind the science" and "Act now or we will." And they chanted "System change, not climate change” and "Don't just watch us, join us," the Guardian of London reported. While boasting of a carbon-free trans-Atlantic trip, it turns out her sailing team will fly back to Europe and another team will fly to the U.S. to take the boat...

    Poland's freedom icon Lech Walesa on Thursday said the United States was "no longer the main global power" in political and moral leadership ahead of a visit by President Donald Trump. Trump is due in Poland on Sunday for ceremonies marking 80 years since the outbreak of World War II. "President Trump, I urge you to regain the position of world leader for the USA," Walesa said in an interview published in Thursday's edition of Poland's centrist Rzeczpospolita daily. "The world needs the leadership of the USA. Moral and political leadership, not only economic and military leadership," added Walesa, a...

    Stephanie Grisham, a White House spokeswoman, when asked why Trump didn’t attend, said that he instead had meetings with other world leaders. “The President had scheduled meetings and bilaterals with Germany and India, so a senior member of the Administration attended in his stead,” Grisham said in a statement to reporters. French President Emmanuel Macron said that Trump didn’t personally attend the climate session, but said that Trump’s team was present.

    Germany’s Merkel demands that EU states resume illegal Muslim migrant naval pickup mission AUG 22, 2019 5:00 PM BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS Earlier this year, German Chancellor Angela Merkel backed out of Operation Sophia, which used naval vessels to rescue migrants in the Mediterranean. Her move was in response “to populist Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini’s policy of keeping ports closed to illegal migrants.” But now Merkel is calling “on members of the European Union (EU) to resume rescuing migrants in the Mediterranean using naval vessels.” Merkel doesn’t seem to think that her country has suffered enough from jihad attacks, the...

    MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's Rosneft, one of the world's top oil producers and exporters, has notified customers that future tender contracts for oil products will be denominated in euros not dollars, five trading sources told Reuters. The move, which could come as soon as this year, is likely to be seen as an attempt to offset any potential negative impact of U.S. sanctions on Russia. Rosneft, which accounts for over 40% of oil output in Russia, produced 45.8 million tonnes of oil products at home in the first six months of this year - from diesel and gasoline to fuel...

    Widespread waste and fraud associated with China’s Belt and Road Initiative has been unearthed after the country’s state railway group was forced to admit this month that a significant amount of cargo containers shuttling between Chinese factories and European cities were empty. The admission by the state-run China Railway – the sole operator of the lines – followed an investigation by the Chinese Business Journal, a newspaper supervised by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, which found that in one extreme case only one of 41 containers on a particular train actually carried goods. The belt and road plan, masterminded...
