    ...Mr Johnson said the US must open up its markets if a post-Brexit trade deal is to be agreed. "I don't think we sell a single joint of British lamb in the UnitedStates, we don't sell any beef," ....Johnson told Trump: "Talking of the anchor, Donald, what we want is for our ships to take freight, say, from New York to Boston, which for the moment they're not able to do." Johnson said agreeing any trade deals with the US within ayear "would be tight". "My own experience of the way Americans work, the size and complexity of the deal...

    Thailand: Bangkok rocked by multiple blasts during morning rush hour, three injured AUG 3, 2019 12:00 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER Oddly enough, there are no “white nationalists” in Bangkok. Who, then, could have done this? Well, Thailand has for years been dealing with Islamic jihadists. But of course the Mirror makes no mention of that. To mention it would be “Islamophobic.” “Bangkok explosions: Thailand rocked by multiple blasts during morning rush hour,” by Bradley Jolly and Toby Meyjes, Mirror, August 2, 2019 (thanks to Paul): Bangkok has been rocked by multiple blasts during the morning rush hour that have injured...

    Thailand's King has made his mistress a royal consort in a ceremony attended by his new wife, marking the first time the country's modern monarchy has publicly admitted to polygamy. King Maha Vajiralongkorn, also known as Rama X, made his former bodyguard Sineenat Wongvajirapakdi, 34, his chao khun phra (royal noble consort) in a ceremony on his 67th birthday. Queen Suthida was sitting next to him throughout the unusual ceremony and showed no emotion despite the fact she now has an official rival for the King's attention. He poured ceremonial water over Ms Sineenat's head to officially anoint her a...
  • Hezbollah Isn't Just In Beirut. It's In New York, Too.

    06/17/2019 6:15:26 PM PDT · by DeoVindiceSicSemperTyrannis · 9 replies
    In recent years, Hezbollah has stepped up its activities beyond Lebanon’s borders. This uptick has been clearest in the Middle East—in Iraq, Yemen, and especially Syria—but plots have also been thwarted in South America, Asia, Europe, and now, possibly, the United States. Reports of Hezbollah activity in North America are not new, though such reporting tends to focus on the group’s fundraising, money laundering, procurement, or other logistical activities from Vancouver to Miami. But last month, the criminal prosecution and conviction in New York of the Hezbollah operative Ali Kourani revealed disturbing new information about the extent of Hezbollah’s operations...

    Former President Bill Clinton took a romantic jaunt in 2002 to convicted pedophile pal Jeffrey Epstein’s “orgy island” with “two young girls” from New York, according to a shocking new interview. Virginia Roberts, who’s accused Epstein of turning her into a “sex slave” at age 17 and forcing her to sleep with his powerful friends, claimed Clinton stayed in one of the many villas on Epstein’s US Virgin Islands estate — where group sex was a “regular occurrence.” “I remember asking Jeffrey, ‘What’s Bill Clinton doing here?’ kind of thing, and he laughed it off and said, ‘Well, he owes...

    "Thailand’s army has ordered telecoms operating in the country’s three most southern states to require the users of all 1.5 million mobile phone numbers in the region to submit photos for biometric facial recognition, according to an Agence France-Presse report published by the Philippines’ ABS-CBS News.The three majority-Muslim states of Yala, Pattani and Narathiwat were annexed by Thailand in 1902, and have experienced widespread violence resulting in roughly 7,000 deaths since 2004, and opponents of the plan say the biometric photo requirement is the latest in a series of moves targeting the Malay-Muslim population.A military spokesman defended the move, saying...

    Thailand: Muslims gun down elderly Buddhist couple The international media will take little note of this. But just imagine the outcry if the roles were reversed. Time Magazine would run another cover story about “Buddhist militancy.” As always, the media objective is to engage in moral equivalence and do whatever is necessary to absolve Islam from the evils committed in its name and in accord with Qur’anic teachings. “Elderly Buddhist couple shot dead in Thailand’s restive south,” Agence France-Presse, June 15, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace): A Buddhist couple were gunned down in a drive-by shooting on Saturday...

    Thailand's players were in tears at the full-time whistle after suffering the heaviest defeat in World Cup history at the hands of the US. There were those on social media who criticized the defending champions for celebrating each goal, but Alex Morgan -- who became only the second American to score five in a World Cup match -- told reporters that "every goal counts." With the US 3-0 up by halftime, the match was effectively over. With the title holders then proceeding to score four goals in the space of six minutes early after the break, it was a rout...

    Vitisak Payalaw and his crew were working on an oil rig 135 miles off the southern coast of Thailand on Friday when they spotted something unexpectedly bobbing in the gentle waves. It was a dog. The animal was fighting his way through the moving water, heading for the oil rig. As he approached the structure, Payalaw, an offshore planner for Chevron Thailand Exploration and Production, held out a pole after the animal had splashed his way to the platform below the rig’s deck. As a video Payalaw posted to his Facebook account shows, the pup was soaked, shivering and too...

    A dog discovered some 220km (135 miles) off the coast of Thailand has been rescued by a team of oil rig workers after the exhausted pooch was spotted paddling near a drilling platform. The brown aspin swam towards the workers when they called out to him last Friday afternoon. He was then pulled to safety. It is not clear how the dog became stranded so far out at sea. Some reports suggest he may have fallen from a fishing trawler.
