    UK: Minister at church targeted by man who tore down cross expresses sympathy for the vandal OCT 23, 2020 3:00 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER The Rev. Greg Thomas claimed that “the vandal was merely suffering from a mental illness and made no mention of the incident being a possible religious hate crime.” Of course. For all too many people in the West, jihad simply doesn’t exist. The idea that a Muslim might want to tear down a cross because Muslims think it wrong and blasphemous to assert that Jesus died on a cross (cf. Qur’an 4:157) doesn’t exist for them....

    Britain’s Royal Air Force (RAF) is embracing gender-neutral pronouns such as ‘Ze’, ‘Per’, and ‘Hir’ to become “fit for the 21st century.” The 102-year-old air force told Forces.net that it “actively promotes diversity and inclusion throughout its ranks in a number of ways” and that the “open and transparent sharing of chosen pronouns is one way we can be an inclusive employer.” The charges mean, according to Forces.net, that from now on “a Leading Aircraftman could be referred to as a Leading Aircraft-Per,” for example.
  • Labour Deputy Leader calls Conservative MP 'scum' in House of Commons.

    10/22/2020 7:59:03 AM PDT · by sinsofsolarempirefan · 3 replies
    Labour's deputy leader has apologised for branding a Conservative MP 'scum' during a heated debate in the Commons on the Covid-19 crisis today, but stopped short of retracting the jibe. Tory backbencher Chris Clarkson demanded an apology from Angela Rayner in a public letter after he suggested that the Labour frontbench was viewing the pandemic as a 'good crisis' to be exploited. However, the hard-Left Corbynite then heckled Mr Clarkson, who asked: 'Excuse me, did the honourable lady just call me scum?'

    Interstate transfers to Melbourne blocked due to corona lockdown restrictions. Four newborn babies in Adelaide, Australia have died after being denied life-saving heart surgery due to coronavirus travel restrictions. Adelaide is the only mainland Australian capital that doesn’t provide paediatric cardiac surgery, therefore around 100 babies a year have to be sent interstate to receive treatment. However, due to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions imposed by the Australian government, transfers to Melbourne have stopped and the babies have to make a longer journey to Sydney instead. “Obsetrician Professor John Svigos said four babies who had died in Adelaide in the past month...

    An American businesswoman has admitted to having a years-long affair with British leader Boris Johnson — saying they even talked about starting a new life together in New York, according to a new interview. Jennifer Arcuri, 35, was previously investigated over allegations she received money and perks while Johnson was mayor of London — but always played coy about longstanding rumors of an affair. She finally admitted it in an interview with the Daily Mail newspaper, saying it “goes without saying” that they had an affair — and hinted that she is even using it as the plot for a...

    British scientists on Tuesday announced plans to launch the first COVID-19 human challenge trials in which researchers will intentionally infect a sample of healthy volunteers with the virus in order to speed up the testing of potential vaccines. According to The Washington Post, the research, scheduled to begin in January, will be led by scientists at Imperial College London and funded by the British government. Fewer than 100 volunteers between the ages of 18 and 30 will have a laboratory-grown strain of COVID-19 blown into their noses and will be quarantined in a private unit at the Royal Free Hospital...

    Researchers in Britain are preparing to start a controversial COVID-19 "human challenge" study in which dozens of healthy volunteers will be exposed to live coronavirus in an effort to speed up vaccine development. The Human Challenge Programme will be conducted by Imperial College London, which said Tuesday in a statement that it would be working in cooperation with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust, and hVIVO, a clinical company that has worked on viral human challenge models. The U.K. government is preparing to invest $43.4 million (33.6 million pounds) in the...

    UK City to Change Statues Which ‘Over-Celebrated Empire, Christianity and “Great” White Men’An official review of statues in Leeds, England, concluded that they “over-celebrated Empire, Christianity and ‘great’ white men” and should be changed through the use of new public-facing plaques putting them a different context.Leeds was the site of one of the more dramatic statue vandalisations in Britain as BLM unrest swept the country, with an impressive monument to Queen Victoria being defaced with the BLM slogans and pejoratives including ‘racist’, ‘whore’, ‘slag’, and ‘slave owner’ — wholly inaccurately, as the British had abolished the slave trade decades prior...

    One of the filthiest tactics of the Panic Merchants is to claim that anyone who opposes their strangling of the country is callous and cares only about money, not life. Dissenters have been pelted with slime of this kind by Johnson, the man who ruined Britain, and by his dense sidekick, Hancock – perhaps the first Health Secretary in history who does not know that malaria is spread by mosquitoes. They tell us we wish to ‘let the virus rip’. Well, Johnson and Hancock, if you care so much about lives, get in touch with Lisa King, as I did....

    Trump attends church in Las Vegas, puts cash in donation bucket (LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL) -- At least 200 hundred people prayed and cheered for President Donald Trump during a Sunday morning service at a church in western Las Vegas. The president made his appearance during the 9 a.m. service at the International Church of Las Vegas, located at 8100 Westcliff Drive, near Summerlin. Pastor Marc Paul Goulet and others in the worship team praised Trump and told him, “You’re doing a great job. Goulet noted Trump’s visit wasn’t his first to the church, which bills itself on its website as...

    President Donald Trump attended a high energy church service Sunday morning at the International Church of Las Vegas, where he pulled out eight bills - which looked to be $20s - to add to the collection plate. The service was part concert, part prayer session and even part rally, as the church's pastor Paul Marc Goulet, ticked off a list of Trump's accomplishments. 'He gave the church back a voice,' Goulet said. 'He's given a voice to the unborn,' the pastor added, earning Trump loud cheers and a partial standing ovation from the crowd.

    Hunter Biden is a 50-year-old American lawyer whose elderly father Joe hopes in just over a fortnight to unseat Donald Trump at the U.S. Presidential election. He's also a twice-married father of five kids (one via a fleeting affair with a former stripper) who has struggled with cocaine and alcohol addiction for most of his adult life and in 2014, when his dad was Barack Obama's Vice President, managed to get booted out of the U.S. Naval Reserve for failing a drug test. This week saw a vintage 'October surprise' when the New York Post obtained footage of Hunter variously:...

    A convicted murderer who helped to stop the London Bridge terror attack last November will have his sentence cut after the Queen intervened. Steven Gallant, 42, was on day release at an event for reformed prisoners in Fishmongers' Hall when Usman Khan began his attack. Gallant, armed only with a Narwhal tusk, helped to restrain Khan, who was wearing a fake suicide vest and was armed with two knives. Khan was shot dead by police but not before he had killed Jack Merritt, 25, and 23-year-old Saskia Jones - both part of the Learning Together scheme to help prisoners access...

    When Scotland voted to remain in the United Kingdom in the 2014 referendum, Valentina Servera Clavell was 14 and living in Barcelona amid a burgeoning movement for Catalan independence. “We were looking to Scotland for an example that we could use to justify asking for our own referendum,” she said. “When the results came in, we were deeply sad because [the pro-independence side] were not only fighting for Scotland but for all the other independence movements across the world.” Now 21 and a student at Glasgow Caledonian University, Servera Clavell is hoping to be selected as the SNP candidate for...

    New MI5 director-general Ken McCallum has confirmed that Islamist jihadists remain by far the biggest terror threat in Britain — but the mainstream media has chosen to hype his remarks on the comparatively minor threat from the far-right instead. “Islamist extremist terrorism… by volume remains our largest threat,” the Glasgow born spy boss confirmed in his first public address since taking over Britain’s domestic intelligence agency. “It is still the case that tens of thousands of individuals are committed to this ideology – and we must continually scan for the smaller numbers within that large group who at any given...

    Joe Biden has triggered a huge diplomatic row with NATO members Hungary and Poland after appearing to lump them in with Belarus as “totalitarian regimes”, with the Hungarian government demanding answers on his family’s alleged corruption in Ukraine. “You see what’s happening in everything from Belarus to Poland to Hungary and the rise of totalitarian regimes in the world, and, as well as, this President embraces all the thugs of the world,” said the 77-year-old presidential hopeful at a recent town hall event. Biden’s seeming comparison of Poland and Hungary, both European Union democracies and parties to the NATO defence...

    The UK has rebuffed Brussels' offer of intensified trade talks next week, telling the European Union's chief negotiator there is "no basis for negotiations". The Prime Minister on Friday accused European leaders of having "abandoned the idea of a free trade deal" and told the country to "get ready" for a no-deal outcome in the negotiations after his October 15 deadline for reaching an agreement passed. European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen had responded to his media statement by vowing that the EU would carry on negotiating, suggesting talks next week in London would go ahead as planned. But...

    Turkey has “activated” a Russian-made S-400 anti-aircraft defense system to track F-16 fighter jets flown by several other NATO members, U.S. lawmakers and analysts suspect. “The whole problem with having the S-400 integrated is in order to do that, you have to betray some of the codes and some of the, basically, NATO technology to the Russians,” the American Enterprise Institute’s Michael Rubin said. “And it appears that that's what they've done.” Western officials have eyed Turkey’s turn to Russian arms dealers with alarm in recent years, but Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan defied the threat of U.S. sanctions to...

    Lockdown measures, such as closing schools, likely prolonged the epidemic by preventing the virus from naturally moving through low-risk populations and building herd immunity. A recent study published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) found that the closing of schools in response to the novel coronavirus could actually increase overall deaths resulting from the disease. Researchers from the University of Edinburgh reevaluated a model produced by the Imperial College London earlier this year that prompted the extensive government lockdown measures, including the closing of schools, implemented in the U.K., ... school closures and isolation of younger people would increase the...
